'This book can provide an excellent framework for bolstering what is often an experiential process - doing a literature review. It is best seen alongside the supervisor, as a guide, through the multidimensional sea of academic literature' - British Educational Research Journal Reviewing the literature for a research project can seem a daunting, even overwhelming task. New researchers, in particular, wonder: Where do I start? What do I do? How do I do it? This text offers students across the social sciences and humanities a practical and comprehensive guide to writing a literature review. Chris Hart offers invaluable advice on how to: search out existing knowledge on a topic; analyse arguments and ideas; map ideas, arguments and perspectives; produce a literature review; and construct a case for investigating a topic. Doing a Literature Review contains examples of how to cite references, structure a research proposal and present a Master's thesis. It is published as a Set Book for The Open University Postgraduate Foundation Module (D820) The Challenge of the Social Sciences. `I have been waiting for this book for five years. It sets out a number of important dimensions involved in the process of literature review and by clear signposting, diagrams, and examples will help the student to carry out her or his review more systematically. Learning how to carry out a literature review has always entailed the experiential. While this is a the best way of learning, it is only so providing that learning actually takes place during the experience (or by reflection afterwards). This book makes explicit those dimensions which could remain implicit or even missed by the student as they wade through all those books, papers, articles, and print-outs' - Kevin Maguire, Nottingham Trent University SAGE Study Skills are essential study guides for students of all levels. From how to write great essays and succeeding at university, to writing your undergraduate dissertation and doing postgraduate research, SAGE Study Skills help you get the best from your time at university.

"Folge deiner Leidenschaft, dann erntest du das große Geld", das klingt nach einem tollen Rat. Aber für die meisten führt es nur zu beruflichen Fehlstarts und ständigem Job-Hopping. Denn Leidenschaft allein reicht nicht, um in einem Job glücklich zu werden. Cal Newport zeigt anhand zahlreicher Fallbeispiele und mit vielen praktischen Hinweisen den verblüffend einfachen Ausweg: Wer Zeit und Mühe darauf verwendet, in dem, was er tut, immer besser zu werden, der wird mit zunehmender Meisterschaft immer mehr Gefallen an seiner Tätigkeit finden. Das ist der beste Baustein für Zufriedenheit im Job und eine große Karriere.

Vorlesungen zur Einführung in die Psychoanalyse

Was ich hier als »Einführung in die Psychoanalyse« der Öffentlichkeit übergebe, ... ist die getreue Wiedergabe von Vorlesungen, die ich in den zwei Wintersemestern 1915/6 und 1916/7 vor einer aus Ärzten und Laien und aus beiden Geschlechtern gemischten Zuhörerschaft gehalten habe. Alle Eigentümlichkeiten, durch welche diese Arbeit den Lesern des Buches auffallen wird, erklären sich aus den Bedingungen ihrer Entstehung. Es war nicht möglich, in der Darstellung die kühle Ruhe einer wissenschaftlichen Abhandlung zu wahren; vielmehr mußte sich der Redner zur Aufgabe machen, die Aufmerksamkeit der Zuhörer während eines fast zweistündigen Vortrags nicht erlahmen zu lassen. Die Rücksicht auf die momentane Wirkung machte es unvermeidlich, daß derselbe Gegenstand eine wiederholte Behandlung fand, z. B. das eine Mal im Zusammenhang der Traumdeutung und dann später in dem der Neurosenprobleme. Die Anordnung des Stoffes brachte es auch mit sich, daß manche wichtige Themen, wie z. B. das des Unbewußten, nicht an einer einzigen Stelle erschöpfend gewürdigt werden konnten, sondern zu wiederholten Malen aufgenommen und wieder fallen gelassen wurden, bis sich eine neue Gelegenheit ergab, etwas zu ihrer Kenntnis hinzuzufügen.
