Interpersonal Dynamics; Essays and Readings on Human Interaction.
Bennis, Warren G.; And Others
This book delineates underlying concepts, areas of concern, and research findings in the field of interpersonal relations. Section 1 deals with the expressive or emotional aspects of interaction (love, hate, ambivalence, alienation) as they occur in marriage, friendship, family life, and less permanent social situations. The next three sections encompass relationships formed either to aid in personal development or to comprehend external realities; characteristics of personal change and influence through such processes as psychotherapy, brainwashing, persuasion, indoctrination, and socialization; and interactions involved (as in the working world) in accomplishing some goal or task outside the relationships themselves. Anecdotal material and samples of contemporary fiction are occasionally used for purposes of illustration. In the last part, the authors explain the values, ideals, and ethics of their choices throughout the volume, followed by suggestions as to criteria and means for achieving "ideal" human relations. The document includes tables, charts, and extensive footnotes and chapter references. (ly)
