Managing conflict

an interdisciplinary approach

An important contribution to the literature of organizational behavior and communication, this volume explores the strategies and issues involved in conflict management. The contributors represent a variety of academic disciplines and their treatment of the subject is both comprehensive and multidisciplinary in nature. Taking as their focus the premise that certain types and levels of conflict can have positive consequences, the authors present an in-depth look at the techniques available to manage conflict within organizations and groups, between individuals, and among nations. The volume is divided into five major sections, each addressing a particular aspect of conflict management. In Part One, the contributors look at organization conflict, examining issues such as interpersonal conflict on the job, the nature of destructive criticism, and different styles of handling conflict. The second section addresses the critical relationship between communication and conflict with separate chapters devoted to communications theory, divorce mediation, the role of argumentation in bargaining, and bargaining strategies. Subsequent sections discuss negotiation and mediation, while the final section provides an integrated perspective on conflict management theory and practice. Each section begins an introductory essay that sets the following papers in context, making this an ideal set of readings for courses in organizational behavior, resources management, and communications.

Psycho-Physical Dualism Today

An Interdisciplinary Approach

Until quite recently, mind-body dualism has been regarded with deep suspicion by both philosophers and scientists. This has largely been due to the widespread identification of dualism in general with one particular version of it: the interactionist substance dualism of RZnZ Descartes. This traditional form of dualism has, ever since its first formulation in the seventeenth century, attracted numerous philosophical objections and is now almost universally rejected in scientific circles as empirically inadequate. During the last few years, however, renewed attention has begun to be paid to the dualistic point of view, as a result of increasing discontent with the prevailing materialism and reductionism of contemporary scientific and philosophical thought. Awareness has grown that dualism need not be restricted to its traditional form and that other varieties of dualism are not subject to the difficulties commonly raised against Descartes' own version of it. Interest in these alternative versions of dualism is growing fast today, because it seems that they are capable of capturing deep-seated philosophical intuitions, while also being fully consistent with the methodological assumptions and empirical findings of modern scientific work on the human mind and brain. The object of this book is to provide philosophers, scientists, their students, and the wider general public with an up-to-date overview of current developments in dualistic conceptions of the mind in contemporary philosophy and science.

The role of communication in human life is well known, and also that many forms
of human behaviour, interaction and learning would be quite impossible without
linguistic communication. Therefore I concentrate on the less evident role of ...
