2.2065 Work Related Stress.
This paper discusses how stress may manifest itself in different ways and for a variety of reasons. In a society in which the "bottom line" tends to be money, there seems to be little incentive on the part of the employers to address the issue of job-related stress in any meaningful way. It may be up to individual employee to diagnose their stress and to deal with it themselves. 5pgs. 15 f/c. 5b.

3.2144 The Present Cross-Cultural Imperative In Social Psychology.
The rise of cross-cultural approaches within social psychology and other of the social sciences may have the effect of saving a good deal of preliminary research that is geared expressly to phenomena within a single human group. In heterogeneous societies there is likely to be demand for information that by its formulation and progress already contains a cross-cultural dimension. If the purpose of social science, at large, involves the testing of possible theories and models for social improvement, it will have to contend with what at first appear to be complicating factors in increased numbers of places and situations in which cross or inter-cultural dynamics are at work. 8 pgs. 13 f/c. 20b.

4.2611 Where Does Intelligence Come From?
The Nature Versus Nurture Debate in Regard to Human Intelligence.This paper looks at the notion of intelligence as a hotly contested debate that continues today. Theorists have suggested widely different definitions: that intelligence is a purely inherited trait, that it is environmentally fostered, and that it is something in-between. This paper suggests that after examining the numerous studies performed in the field of psychology, it must be concluded that intelligence cannot be reduced to the sole product of either heredity or environment, and can in fact be attributed to an integration of both. One's intellectual potential is genetically determined; however, the extent to which that potential is realized depends on one's environment. Intelligence as a concept is dependent to a large degree on relative factors such as culture there can be no absolute definition of intelligence that applies across the board. 17 pgs. 14 f/c. 17b.

5.2655 The Psychodynamic Approach.
This paper looks at Freud's psychodynamic approach and how it looks into motivation through the lens of the psychology of personality. This paper also uses a study to show that the psychodynamic approach is very realistic, since it shows how beliefs and behaviors are directly connected to psychology, as well as psychological problems. 5 pgs. 5 f/c. 2b.

7.2688 Folk Psychology, Connectionism, and Eliminative Materialism.
Connectionism, eliminative materialism, and even functionalism have shown the weaknesses in folk psychology. We also see the complexity of the entire phenomenon in the realm of mental representations and the computational approach. Indeed, in examining the question of whether computers can think like the brain, we crystallize and illuminate many of these complex questions. Overall, while many theories and views cast doubt on folk psychology, however, they continue to have just as many flaws in their own assumptions, and folk psychology continues to have a certain structure that underpins our basic understandings. In other words, it has its flaws, but there is yet to be anything to sufficiently and successfully replace it. 13 pgs. 26 f/c. 4b.
