Bookforum's Omnivore - A Whole Lot of Psychology Links

This collection of psychology links was posted yesterday on Bookforum's Omnivore - I have added a few of my own at the bottom. Enjoy all the reading!

  • A new issue the New School Psychology Bulletin is out. 
  • The latest issue of the Annual Review of Critical Psychology (ARCP) explores issues that emerge at the intersection of Marxist scholarship and psychological practice. 
  • The meaning of feeling: Joshua Soffer on banishing the homunculus from psychology. 
  • In his latest research Roy F. Baumeister has discovered surprising ways to improve willpower, including sipping lemonade. 
  • Joshua Greene studies the scientific basis for moral decision-making. 
  • Here is a psycho-­historical analysis of Adolf Hitler and the role of personality, psychopathology, and development. 
  • Psychologists now believe fledgling psychopaths can be identified as early as kindergarten — the hope is to teach these children empathy before it’s too late. 
  • Improving disorder classification, worldwide: With the help of psychologists, the next version of the International Classification of Diseases will have a more behavioral perspective. 
  • Psychiatry's "Bible" Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders gets an overhaul
  • The time has come for us to admit that psychiatric diagnosis is too important to be left exclusively in the hands of psychiatrists.
Here are a few more links I have had open in tabs but have not had a chance to post about or comment on.
