Introduction

What can we learn about Strindberg’s views by analyzing the dynamics between all three characters in ‘Miss Julie’?

The dynamics between characters are the ways the characters act towards each other, or the interaction or relationships between the characters and how they vary from time to time within the play. Through the dynamics between the characters, the readers can learn about the writer’s views, as they are the evidence of the writer’s thoughts and show what the writer wants to prove.

        Miss Julie, Jean and Christine are the three characters we are looking at in this case and the ways they interact proves Strindberg’s views.

  1. Is race and intelligence a justifiable area of research in psychology?

    Previous Caucasians test scores had proved significantly higher than African Americans (Kamin, 1974). The results provided meagre support for the genetic hypothesis. A reasonable assumption is that even though blacks IQ scores were one standard deviation below the mean in comparison to whites (Lynn and Vanhanen, 2002), intelligence levels do not appear to be greatly inherited.
