This book is designed to capture the complexity of the vast domain of the psychology of communication by adding overlays of different logical approaches to the topic. Each chapter will focus on a different approach. Chapters 2 (behavioristic approach), 3 (humanistic approach), and 4 (interactionist approach) are presented as thesis, antithesis, and synthesis. They focus respectively on input, stored, and fedback information. Chapters 5 (phylogenetic approach) and 6 (ontogenetic approach) place psychology firmly where it belongs as the study of organisms rather than of mechanisms. Development from animal to human and from child to adult is emancipation from tyranny of environment. Chapter 7 (pathological approach) explores functional disorders of person-in-environment, since the nervous system “knows” its environment. Chapter 8 (phenomenological approach) deals with the further complexity that the nervous system can be viewed from the inside (experience) as well as from the outside (behavior). Chapters 9 (simulation approach) and 10 (mediational approach) focus on artificial intelligence (AI) and intelligence amplification (IA). Computers can be used to emulate or to extend human intelligence. Chapters 11 (biological approach) and 12 (sociological approach) deal with the complexities arising from the fact that the nervous system is embedded in a hierarchy of systems within systems. They focus on emergence from the level below psychology (biology) and reduction from the level above (sociology). Each approach will cast some light on the topic from its peculiar perspective. The cumulative effect will be to illuminate the domain in all its complexity.

Book & CD. The ability to communicate well is a key marker of success in any environment, particularly in the world of work. This book is based on the widely used and respected "The Communication Handbook", written by a team of dedicated communicators and higher education specialists. Although the material has been substantially reworked and expanded, the focus remains on different forms of communication. The emphasis is placed on writing as a communication tool, particularly within the business environment. To support this, each chapter contains numerous exercises to enable the student to practise the skills learnt. An exciting addition to this text is the inclusion of online interactive exercises for students. The drilling exercises will enable students to reinforce the principles that have been explained and tested in the book, but in a fun, interactive and learning-enabled way. Lecturers can use the range of exercises to ensure that students are prepared before class and to reinforce the theories and techniques taught in the classroom. (The package is being piloted at a major South African university). The authors draw from substantial experience in the classroom and from close contact with business and industry. For that reason a student working through this book will be well prepared to communicate with success in the business environment.
