9780738217994: Mindfulness, 25th anniversary edition (A Merloyd Lawrence Book)

In the years since it was first published, this influential book based on the highly innovative findings of social psychologist Dr. Ellen J. Langer and her team of researchers at Harvard made its mark for its unique concept of mindfulness, thoroughly adapted to contemporary life in the West. Langer's theory has been applied to a wide number of fields, including health, business, aging, prejudice, and learning. There is now a new psychological assessment based on her work (called the Langer Mindfulness Scale) as well as an institute in Mexico founded to apply the concepts of mindfulness to health and wellness. In her introduction to this 25th anniversary edition, Dr. Langer outlines some of these exciting applications and suggests those still to come.

Review:


Stretches our minds in startling new directions.”

Howard Gardner


Ellen Langer has succeeded in writing a book that, in one bite, manages to be scientifically interesting, immensely practical, and dramatically absorbing. It is about the mindsets that lead human beings even the smartest of them to become stupid and mindless.' Its power as drama in demonstrating that mindlessness leads not only to the banality of dullness, but to a giving up of life itself. In a series of fascinating research studies, Dr. Langer demonstrates that the young can be made more creative, the man in charge made more effective, and the elderly kept from giving in to and dying of their age.”

Jerome Bruner, author of Actual Minds, Possible Worlds


One simply can't finish this book and not see the world in the same way.”

Alan Dershowitz, Harvard Law School
"A provocative, engaging essay on the relation between our mindstates and our actions, by an astute and irrepressible social scientist who obviously  enjoys playing with bold ideas."

Jerome Kagan, Harvard University



A landmark work of social psychology.”

Booklist
