History Of Behavioral And Cognitive-Behavorial Treatments For Sexual Offenders, Raisa Manejwala 2016 La Salle University

History Of Behavioral And Cognitive-Behavorial Treatments For Sexual Offenders, Raisa Manejwala

The Histories

The study of human sexuality began in the 19th century. In particular, scientists studied both conventional and deviant sexual practices during this time. Sexual acts that are considered deviant are not practiced by the majority of society and are therefore considered abnormal behavior. For example, deviant acts involve being sexually aroused to non-human objects, children, and non-consenting individuals. Prior to and throughout most of the 20th century, homosexuality was also viewed by society as a deviant sexual act that was due to a mental illness. Charcot and Magnan (1882) were the first to publish research on an attempt ...


"On The Relationship Of Technology To Medicine From 1897-1942", Tony Kelly 2016 La Salle University

"On The Relationship Of Technology To Medicine From 1897-1942", Tony Kelly

The Histories

Technology is a field of fluidity; it is ever changing and ever evolving. Technology’s definition is almost as broad as the array of industries which it affects, but it is best defined as the “practical application of knowledge, especially in a particular area” (Merriam-Webster). Technology began to play a crucial role in medicine as early as 1897, and grew in prevalence through the 1940s. It continues to be ever present, and almost necessary, as medicine, and its practitioners, are becoming gradually more reliant on different types of technologies in all fields of medicine. Since 1897, and especially through the ...


Obstetrics And Gynecology In The Ancient World, Gracie Joy 2016 La Salle University

Obstetrics And Gynecology In The Ancient World, Gracie Joy

The Histories

Women in the ancient world were subject to ancient practices of medicine. This seems obvious to the reader, however to truly understand what the implications of “ancient practices of medicine” are, one must step out of the realm of today’s technology. Feminine healthcare is something taken advantage of in modernity by many. It has a crucial role in the sustaining of a population, though is frequently overlooked in many cultures of today as nonessential medical practice. This specialization should not be ignored and certainly was not in Ancient Rome. The doctors and midwives and nurses of the time took ...

Acercamiento Al Pensamiento Mágico Y La Superstición En El Discurso Literario De La Primera Modernidad Española: Miguel De Cervantes Y María De Zayas, Miguel Magdaleno Santamaria 2016 University of Nebraska - Lincoln

Acercamiento Al Pensamiento Mágico Y La Superstición En El Discurso Literario De La Primera Modernidad Española: Miguel De Cervantes Y María De Zayas, Miguel Magdaleno Santamaria

Theses, Dissertations, Student Research: Modern Languages and Literatures

The purpose of this thesis is to serve as a first approach to magical thinking and superstition in the literary discourse of Early Modern Spain, by examining these topics in Miguel de Cervantes’ first Quijote (1605) and María de Zayas’ Novelas Amorosas y Ejemplares (1637). The methodology followed in this thesis fundamentally includes the points of view of four fields of study. These are: anthropology, history, literature and historical linguistics. Accordingly, this study is thematically divided into four big sections: first, a discussion around the concept of ‘magical thinking’ in relation to religion (from an anthropological point of view); second ...


Love Slaves And Wonder Women: Radical Feminism And Social Reform In The Psychology Of William Moulton Marston, Matthew J. Brown 2016 The University of Texas at Dallas

Love Slaves And Wonder Women: Radical Feminism And Social Reform In The Psychology Of William Moulton Marston, Matthew J. Brown

Feminist Philosophy Quarterly

In contemporary histories of psychology, William Moulton Marston is remembered for helping develop the lie detector test. He is better remembered in the history of popular culture for creating the comic book superhero Wonder Woman. In his time, however, he contributed to psychological research in deception, basic emotions, abnormal psychology, sexuality, and consciousness. He was also a radical feminist with connections to women's rights movements. Marston's work is an instructive case for philosophers of science on the relation between science and values. Although Marston's case provides further evidence of the role that feminist values can play in ...


The Idle Woman In Therapy And Fiction: S. Weir Mitchell’S Literary Career And The Gilded Age Fear Of Malingering, Brent Ruswick 2016 West Chester University of Pennsylvania

The Idle Woman In Therapy And Fiction: S. Weir Mitchell’S Literary Career And The Gilded Age Fear Of Malingering, Brent Ruswick

Brent Ruswick

As one of America’s most prominent physicians in the Gilded Age and a successful novelist, S. Weir Mitchell sought to secure the professional reputation and authority of scientific, clinical medicine. Historians have given great attention to the ways that his treatment of women suffering from exhaustion or nervousness reinforced and created highly restrictive, gendered norms; more recently, historians have explored how Mitchell’s literary career augmented and echoed his approach to medicine. This article extends the historical analysis of Mitchell’s literary career by examining one of his lesser novels, Circumstance. Through the novel’s protagonist, an archetypically virtuous ...


Cool: How Air Conditioning Changed Everything [Table Of Contents], Salvatore Basile 2016 Fordham University

Cool: How Air Conditioning Changed Everything [Table Of Contents], Salvatore Basile

History

It’s a contraption that makes the lists of “Greatest Inventions Ever”; at the same time, it’s accused of causing global disaster. It has changed everything from architecture to people’s food habits to their voting patterns, to even the way big business washes its windows. It has saved countless lives . . . while causing countless deaths. Most of us are glad it’s there. But we don’t know how, or when, it got there.

It’s air conditioning.

For thousands of years, humankind attempted to do something about the slow torture of hot weather. Everything was tried: water power ...


"The Foundation Of Naval Science": Alfred Thayer Mahan's The Influence Of Sea Power On History And The Library Of Congress Classification System, Ellen E. Adams, Joshua F. Beatty 2016 Alice T. Miner Museum

"The Foundation Of Naval Science": Alfred Thayer Mahan's The Influence Of Sea Power On History And The Library Of Congress Classification System, Ellen E. Adams, Joshua F. Beatty

Library and Information Technology Services

We argue that the inclusion of naval science as a standalone class in the Library of Congress's 1904 classification scheme resulted from the convergence of several historical trends, including the changing organization of knowledge, imperialist expansion, and the profit-seeking of the publishing industry. At the intersection of these trends stands a single book: Alfred Thayer Mahan's The Influence of Sea Power upon History, published in 1890. By laying out the multiple influences that served to create a single problematic class in a popular classification scheme, we hope to provide a framework to better understand the origins of such ...


The Limits Of The Rhetorical Analysis Of Science, Alan G. Gross 2016 University of Minnesota

The Limits Of The Rhetorical Analysis Of Science, Alan G. Gross

Poroi

Three case studies explore the limits of the rhetorical analysis of science. The first is a case in which scientific facts and theories eventually reach a stage where they are beyond argument and, as a consequence, beyond rhetorical analysis. The second is a case where a work is scientific, that is, moving toward facts and theories beyond argument and is, at the same time, an example of deliberative rhetoric whose claims, of course, can never be beyond argument. The third is a case in which, although the science in question is now beyond argument, its policy implications remain, and will ...
