A title in the modular "Principles of Psychology" series, designed for A- level and other introductory courses. While normal individuals obviously differ from each other in various ways, psychologists have emphasized differences in intelligence and personality. This emphasis is reflected in the book, and various different views are discussed at length.; Abnormality has always been a source of fascination, although it has been difficult to form a good understanding of why and how abnormality develops. Psychologists have also grappled with other complex issues, such as how to classify abnormal individuals and what forms of treatment will prove beneficial. In spite of complexities, much progress has been made.

Personality and Intelligence at Work examines the increasingly controversial role of individual differences in predicting and determining behaviour at work. It combines approaches from organizational psychology and personality theory to critically examine the physical, psychological and psychoanalytic aspects of individual differences, and how they impact on the world of work. Topics covered include the role of IQ at work as the best predictor of success, but also the importance of increasingly recognized social intelligences such as emotional intelligence (EQ). The significance of personality traits and the impact of temperaments on work performance are also examined, and the methods used to assess work behaviour and potential are reviewed. Psychological tests, which measure personality traits, are questioned as accurate predictors of behaviour at work, alongside other factors such as job satisfaction, productivity, absenteeism and turnover. This thoroughly revised and updated edition of Personality at Work provides a comprehensive review of the relevant literature from psychology, sociology and management science. It will be of interest to students of organizational psychology and business and management studies, as well as HR professionals.

Excerpt from Genie und Vererbung Die Bucherei hat es sich zur Aufgabe gemacht, einerseits dem deutschen Publikum die Hauptwerke der auslandischen Philosophie und Soziologie in guten Ubersetzungen nahezubringen, andererseits auch wertvolle deutsche Originalarbeiten in ihren Rahmen aufzunehmen. Wie ihr Erscheinen von den Fachgenossen aufgenommen wurde, zeigt eine Zuschirift Rudolf Euckens der dem Verleger folgendermassen schreibt: "Ich wunsche von Herzen Gluck zu den bedeutenden wissenschaftlichen Unternehmungen, die sie beginnen. Ich glaube, dass hier in Wahrheit eine Lucke besteht, welche dringend der Ausfullung bedarf: wir Deutschen haben zu wenig Beziehung zu den inneren geistigen Bewegungen der anderen Kulturvolker, und wir konnten daraus doch manches gewinnen." Es sollen ausser deutschen Philosophen zunachst die bedeutendsten Vertreter der auslandischen Philosophie mit charakteristischen Werken zu Worte kommen, daneben wird Ruck sieht darauf genommen, dass nicht nur fur den Fachmann interessante Werke zur Verdeutschung kommen, sondern auch solche, die fur ein grosseres philosophisch und soziologisch interessiertes Publikum Wert haben. Die beste Auskunft uber Plan und Ab sichten des Unternehmens gibt ein Blick auf die Titel der schon erschienenen und vorbereiteten Bande. Ein ausfuhrlicher Spezialprospekt uber die Gebiete Philosophie-Soziologie steht jederzeit umsonst zu Diensten.
