  2. To what extent are our selves constructed through language and discourse?

    The aim of attitude research is to predict behaviours by identifying peoples' underlying attitudes. This is very common for commercial purposes where researchers endeavour to modify or change consumers' attitudes. The usual method for attitude researchers is a questionnaire, based on the Likert scale expressing a preference measured from 1 to 5, a continuum of preference generating measurable scores (ibid). Despite the fact that one's attitudes are thought to have considerable influence over one's actions, LaPiere's (1934, pg. 127)

  3. Critically discuss the usefulness of the three individual visions of social

    The foundation stone of this perspective is essentially based on; measurement, reliability and objectivity: and carefully controlled empirical investigations such as experiments are favoured. It adopts a nomothetic approach, which primarily concerns itself with identifying patterns of human behaviour and making predictions, in order to generate laws that can be applied to populations of people. It has a deterministic view of the self and views our behaviours, as a product of certain forces i.e. the factors that we encounter will determine our behaviour.

  4. Compare and contrast the goals and methods of attitude researchers and discursive psychologists. Which approach do you consider the most useful, and in what ways?

    The example of Kondo is used as strong evidence for the multiplicity of the self. According to social constructionism, Kondo's multifaceted self, as neighbour, daughter, worker, American, Japanese etc. is due to her movement across different social contexts and to the practices and meanings, which each context implies. Through meeting the demands of the political/communal nature of Japan Kondo experienced internal transformations to her consciousness in the form of new patterns of thought, new internal monologues, self-descriptions and positioning of the self in relation to other people. Through a series of interactions, rewards and punishments Kondo was taught what to do and say.

  5. Assess the meaning and relevance of celebrities, and say if the medias role in promoting celebrity is a diversion from the social purpose of journalism

    American author and historian Barbara Goldsmith said: 'the line between fame and notoriety has been erased. Today we are faced with a vast confusing jumble of celebrities: the talented and untalented, heroes and villains, people of accomplishment and those who have accomplished nothing at all'. This theory can easily be applied to any coexistent society or culture. For example, the recent array of various 'talent show' and 'reality' themed television shows. I.T.V's popular music contest, 'The X Factor' has most recently shot two talent less twins into the limelight, John and Edward Grimes, or as they are better known 'Jedward'.

  8. Arguement Paper

    Not all children are the same. Some of us have a close relationship with our parents, and some don't, but we need to focus on showing our children how to have a relationship with their parents. Without that anything we try to accomplish with our children will not be effective. You must have an understanding with your child regarding your motives and theirs. Responding to things your child may or may not have done is really important; overreacting may cause you to regret something even though you may be correct about the situation.

  12. Is conflict inevitable on a Construction Project

    If not, it leads to dispute. CLASSIFICATION OF CONFLICT Conflict can further be classified as Functional and Dysfunctional, depending on the outcome. Earlier, scholars believed that conflict is a bad thing and should be avoided at all costs, but this was contradicted by Mary Parker Follett (1925), who coined the idea that effective conflict management ought not to conceive conflict as a wasteful outbreak of incompatibilities, but a normal process whereby socially valuable differences register themselves for the enrichment for all concerned. * Functional Conflict: It works towards goal of a project.

  14. Punishment vs. Rehab

    Punishing offenders not only instills fear in society, but also demonstrates the lesson and consequences associated with committing a crime. One of the many goals of the criminal justice system is to not only punish the offenders and reduce the rate of crime, but to compensate and help the victims with the healing process. One form of punishment involves incarceration. Prison is viewed as a severe form of punishment for most people. The question is whether it is an effective form of punishment for offenders and potential offenders?

  17. Do you think that divided loyalty is the most important contributing factor leading to the conflict in Northern Ireland? Explain your answer. [15 marks]

    Many Catholics were massacred or treated harshly. They remember the long struggle for Home Rule.They distrust the Protestants as they still celebrate activities that Catholics find a disgrace. This can be seen in the fact that the Protestants still celebrate the Battle of Boyne as a mark of Protestant dominance and they usually march through Catholic residential areas. As a result, this divided sense of loyaity makes them indifferent to each other and intolerant of each other's opinions and beliefs.

  19. Unlawful conduct

    Furthermore, in criminal law, a guilty party is penalized by '(1) incarceration in a jail or prison, (2) payment of a fine, (3) a community sentence or (4) execution of the defendant, known as the death penalty' (Arthur, Block 2, 2009, p. 44). Unlike criminal law; however, in civil law there is never a punishment and it is primarily involved with compensating the claimant. A defendant in civil proceedings is hardly ever incarcerated. In civil cases, the claimant or otherwise known as plaintiff can be an individual person, a company or a public authority. In civil proceedings the essential standard of proof to suggest that claimant would succeed if the majority of the facts are in its favour.

  21. Explore notions of the gaze in at least two texts.

    Such a Western lens first came into being through colonisation, with the complete domination of one culture over another. Later, in the early Postcolonial period, both the Governments and tourist trade exacerbated this state of flux. With the unfortunate need for steady income from a wealthy source, countries started plying the world market with heavily idealised pictures of sandy beaches and picturesque holiday resorts, 'such activity is given the name of tourism'.3 However, those doing this were those who could afford it rather than the average person: 'The national middle class discovers its historic mission: that of intermediary'.4 Essentially becoming 'middle men' in the prostitution of their own country, the wealthy sought to exploit not only the land that sustained them but also their poorer fellow countrymen.

On the issues of feminism Lewis writes about The Suffragettes, Marxist group of middle class women who argued that women's labour is exploited by capitalism. Kate Millet, a feminist during the 1960's-70's who said the media "exploited and oppressed women by sexualised images of women's bodies'." This then became "central motif to television culture." One form of the media that Lewis writes about is the "introduction of writing," to the ancient cultures of Sumer, Egypt and Greece.

  23. Compare methods of research and style of presentation of human and physical geography

    (http://www.utexas.edu/academic/diia/assessment/iar/glossary.php#research_methods" Different research methods are used for collecting different types of data. For example the measurement of a physical feature such as the slope profile of a beach, will give a different type of data than that obtained using a structured or unstructured interview. These different types of data are typically described as either quantitative or qualitative, the data can also be categorised as being either primary or secondary. Primary being new data that has been collected by the researcher and secondary being previously gathered data, maybe for another purpose and not specifically for that project.
