Indirect Reciprocity And The Evolution Of "Moral Signals", Rory Smead 2009 University of California - Irvine

Indirect Reciprocity And The Evolution Of "Moral Signals", Rory Smead

Rory Smead

Signals regarding the behavior of others are an essential element of human moral systems and there are important evolutionary connections between language and large-scale cooperation. In particular, social communication may be required for the reputation tracking needed to stabilize indirect reciprocity. Additionally, scholars have suggested that the benefits of indirect reciprocity may have been important for the evolution of language and that social signals may have coevolved with large-scale cooperation. This paper investigates the possibility of such a coevolution. Using the tools of evolutionary game theory, we present a model that incorporates primitive "moral signaling" into a simple setting of ...

Egyptian Papyri And The Book Of Abraham: Some Questions And Answers, Kerry Muhlestein 2009 Brigham Young University - Utah

Egyptian Papyri And The Book Of Abraham: Some Questions And Answers, Kerry Muhlestein

Kerry Muhlestein

In 1835 Joseph Smith began translating some ancient Egyptian papyri that he had obtained from an exhibitor passing through Kirtland, Ohio. He soon announced, “Much to our joy [we] found that one of the rolls contained the writings of Abraham.” While we do not know how much the Prophet translated, we do know that some of his translation was published in serial form and eventually canonized as the Book of Abraham in the Pearl of Great Price. For nearly one hundred years, it was thought that all these papyri had eventually made their way to the Wood Museum in Chicago ...

Joshua Gross Rich (1820-1897): The Life And Works Of A Western Maine Pioneer And Wildlife Writer, William Krohn 2009 University of Maine - Main

Joshua Gross Rich (1820-1897): The Life And Works Of A Western Maine Pioneer And Wildlife Writer, William Krohn

William B. Krohn

Joshua Gross Rich seemingly lived several lifetimes in the nearly eight decades he spent on earth. During various times, he made a living by trapping, guiding, farming. While living in the Rangeley Lakes region, he sold his winter catch to fur traders and as scientific specimens to Harvard University. Always willing to change with the times, Rich transitioned from being a professional trapper to a trial justice for Oxford County, a pension agent for Civil War veterans, a correspondent for many newspapers, and finally Bethel’s humane officer. While living in Upton, Maine, Rich owned and operated a hotel, a ...


Early Maine Wildlife: Historical Accounts Of Canada Lynx, Moose, Mountain Lion, White-Tailed Deer, Wolverine, Wolves, And Woodland Caribou, 1603–1930, William Krohn, Christopher Hoving 2009 Selected Works

Early Maine Wildlife: Historical Accounts Of Canada Lynx, Moose, Mountain Lion, White-Tailed Deer, Wolverine, Wolves, And Woodland Caribou, 1603–1930, William Krohn, Christopher Hoving

William B. Krohn

The Northeast, especially Maine, has an exceptionally rich heritage of early literature about wildlife. These writings are buried in obscure scientific books and journals, government documents, rare books, old newspapers, and discontinued sporting periodicals. The primary section of this book is a chronologically-arranged compilation of selected quotations from these hard-to-find sources, thus making accessible significant wildlife writings of early biologists, naturalists, and woodsmen from northern New England and eastern Canada.
While designed to be a reference-work for biologists, conservationists, folklorists, and historians, this book will also be of use to campers, hunters, trappers, and others interested in the region’s ...

Managing The Voices: Athlete Self-Talk As A Dialogic Process, Alla Tovares 2009 Howard University

Managing The Voices: Athlete Self-Talk As A Dialogic Process, Alla Tovares

Alla V. Tovares

In this paper I examine athletes’ retrospective (re)constructions of inner conversations, or self-talk, that they report experiencing during training and competition. I demonstrate how they employ an array of different voices to (re)create their partial selves in verbal and written accounts. In this regard, I suggest that one tool they use is internal polemic (Bakhtin, 1984), which I interpret as intrapersonal argumentative dialogue. Applying this literary notion to everyday stories shows how internal polemic works toward creating a dialogic self, or a self that incorporates conflicting voices and points of view. Through a detailed analysis of athletes’ oral ...
