The Effect Of Explanation On The Art Preferences Of Liberals And Conservatives, Joseph Fay Oct 1977

The Effect Of Explanation On The Art Preferences Of Liberals And Conservatives, Joseph Fay

Master's Theses

One hundred thirteen subjects at the University of Richmond were shown twenty-four slides of paintings from four categories of art: simple representational, simple abstract, complex representational, complex abstract. Half of the paintings in each category were accompanied by a one-paragraph explanation. Based on their scores on the Conservatism Scale (Wilson & Patterson, 1968), subjects were divided into two groups: liberals and conservatives. Using Wilson’s (1973) theory of conservatism as the theoretical base, it was hypothesized that, for the unexplained paintings, conservatives would prefer simple art while liberals would prefer complex art.


The Owl Of Minerva And The Colors Of The Night, Gary Shapiro Oct 1977

The Owl Of Minerva And The Colors Of The Night, Gary Shapiro

Philosophy Faculty Publications

What I wish to do, however, is to call attention to the manner in which Hegel speaks of Minerva's owl and to juxtapose both the manner and the substance of his thought about the twilight of philosophy and civilization with some of Hölderlin's dichterisch and Heidegger's denkerisch meditations on similar themes. For if Hegel has announced the coming of the night, Hölderlin and Heidegger have sought to make the night their very own territory and to comprehend it from within. If Hegel has rather gingerly allowed himself to lapse into that famous figurative discourse of the owl ...


Efficacy, Contrast Effect And Differential Effectiveness Of Two Time-Out Durations In The Treatment Of Two Autistic Children, Susan Adell Blankenbaker Sep 1977

Efficacy, Contrast Effect And Differential Effectiveness Of Two Time-Out Durations In The Treatment Of Two Autistic Children, Susan Adell Blankenbaker

Master's Theses

A single subject simultaneous treatment design, within a multiple baseline framework, was used to test the efficacy, contrast effect and differential effectiveness of two durations of time-out (TO). With two children on the autistic ward of a residential mental hospital serving as subjects, the TO procedure was demonstrated to be effective in reducing target behavior. No statistically significant difference was found between the 2 minute and 5 minute TOs and limited support for the existence of a contrast effect was revealed. It was concluded that strategies for the facilitation of the use of the shortest TO interval possible should be ...


Methodist Circuit-Riders In America, 1766-1844, William A. Powell Jr. Aug 1977

Methodist Circuit-Riders In America, 1766-1844, William A. Powell Jr.

Master's Theses

The Methodist Episcopal Church became the largest religious denomination in the United States during the 1820's. Local expressions of the national body were established in nearly every American community. Methodist expansion was largely a result of the activity of circuitriders. These itinerants traveled and proclaimed the gospel to citizens, many of whom joined the Church and became part of a religious movement which influenced the l development of culture in the United States.

The traveling minister in the Methodist Church was noted for his self-sacrificing spirit. He endured hardships in the ministry which few men of the present age ...


Life Satisfaction And Aging: A Comparison Of Life Satisfaction Index A, The Tennessee Self Concept Scale And Correlates, Ann Rowley Penberthy Aug 1977

Life Satisfaction And Aging: A Comparison Of Life Satisfaction Index A, The Tennessee Self Concept Scale And Correlates, Ann Rowley Penberthy

Master's Theses

The purpose of this study was to examine the relationship between life satisfaction and other relevant variables in a sample of noninstitutionalized older Americans. Recent research has related satisfaction with life to adjustment in aging. Previous studies, however, have used a variety of methods to measure life satisfaction or self-concept. This study was designed to be an analysis of the Tennessee Self Concept Scale and the Life Satisfaction Index A with selected personal and behavioral variables. 59 subjects, primarily Jewish, aged 56 to 91 were tested during their regular activity meetings at the Jewish Community Center of Richmond, Virginia. The ...


Relationship Of State-Trait Anxiety And Type Of Practice To Reading Comprehension Of College Students, Lewis R. Waid Aug 1977

Relationship Of State-Trait Anxiety And Type Of Practice To Reading Comprehension Of College Students, Lewis R. Waid

Master's Theses

Sixty male and female college students of average scholastic aptitude, 30 with high A-trait and 30 with low A-trait, were tested for reading comprehension following either massed (MP) or distributed practice (DP) with narrative reading material. Twice during the experiment the students' A-state was assessed through Spielberger's STAI A-state scale. The findings demonstrated; (a) high A-trait students responded to the experimental situation with greater elevations in A-state; (b) performance on the reading comprehension task was related to A-trait level with low A-trait students performing significantly better; (c) the A-state level of the students immediately prior to the reading comprehension ...


The Optimum Marital Deduction Survives The Tax Reform Act, J. Rodney Johnson Jul 1977

The Optimum Marital Deduction Survives The Tax Reform Act, J. Rodney Johnson

Law Faculty Publications

Several years ago an article appeared in the pages of this journal which suggested that those attorneys who regularly focused on obtaining the maximum marital deduction in the wills they were drafting for their clients might be suffering from a form of estate planner's myopia. That is, they were losing sight of their ultimate goal of minimizing the total estate tax burden imposed on the husband's assets as they pass from him, through the wife, on to the ultimate beneficiaries. The danger foreseen was that, as an attorney employed one of the various formula clauses designed to obtain ...


The Leader's Method And The Follower's Outcome: Predictors Of Future Interaction, Geoffrey J. Nimich Jul 1977

The Leader's Method And The Follower's Outcome: Predictors Of Future Interaction, Geoffrey J. Nimich

Master's Theses

In attempting to explain the degree of cooperation in the leader-follower dyad, leadership style and situational outcome, in a mixed motive game, were controlled. 120 business employees, both male and female, were paired with a leader who was projected as a Prisoner's Dilemma game expert. The subject, with the help of the leader who was either democratic or autocratic, then played a round of the game against a confederate subject. The win/lose outcome of the first game was controlled. The subject was then given the opportunity to play a second game against the leader, and the number of ...


Tuning In The Boiler Room And The Cotton Patch: New Directions In The Study Of Afro-American Folklore, Daryl Cumber Dance Jun 1977

Tuning In The Boiler Room And The Cotton Patch: New Directions In The Study Of Afro-American Folklore, Daryl Cumber Dance

English Faculty Publications

One of the first problems in the study of folklore is, of course, the collection of materials. In almost every area of Black folklore, the collecting was initiated by whites. As I have noted elsewhere, "Black folk forms seem to thrive quietly and abashedly in the Black community as items of private enjoyment and public shame until they are ' discovered ' by whites who legitimize them for the American public-Black and white. Such has been the case with the general folk tales (the animal tales, the etiological myths, the Slave John tales, etc.), the spirituals, and the blues. The latest discovery ...

The Relationship Of The Protestant Episcopal Church In Virginia With The Negro Slaves 1830 To 1860: Success Or Failure?, Elisabeth Evans Wray May 1977

The Relationship Of The Protestant Episcopal Church In Virginia With The Negro Slaves 1830 To 1860: Success Or Failure?, Elisabeth Evans Wray

Master's Theses

Some conclusions may be drawn as to the success—or failure--of the Church's relationship with the slaves in nineteenth-century Virginia by constructing a narrative of the general attitudes held by the Episcopal Church (the bishops and other clergy and the laity) and the actions resulting from them. The years from 1830 to 1860 are the most fruitful period of the century in revealing through sermons, letters, newspapers, and books the Church's ideas concerning the institution of religious instruction for the slaves and their place in the life of the Episcopal Church in the Diocese of Virginia. Because many ...


The Effects Of Litter Size On Behavioral Development And Adult Emotinoality In The Rat, Elizabeth N. Pully May 1977

The Effects Of Litter Size On Behavioral Development And Adult Emotinoality In The Rat, Elizabeth N. Pully

Master's Theses

The effects of the early experience variable of litter size is examined at two developmental time periods (infancy and adulthood) in the rat. The study departs from the majority of the early experience experimentation in its use of a naturally occurring independent variable in place of the typical handling and shocking procedures. Large (n = 9), medium (n = 5), small litters (n = 3) were developed by pooling rat pups at birth and then distributing them to randomly selected, lactating females. Observations of behaviors (including maternal grooming) during the preweaning stage of development disclosed substantial differences in response activity in the three ...


The Spirit Mercurius Of Rabelais, Dorothy S. Wyatt May 1977

The Spirit Mercurius Of Rabelais, Dorothy S. Wyatt

Master's Theses

The purpose of this paper is to investigate the presence of salt and Mercurius in Rabelais' Gargantua and Pantagruel. This element and this alchemical personification of the process of transformation will be viewed in light of works of psychoanalysis and alchemical symbolism by C. G. Jung. To broach a study of this type implies an overlap of psychoanalytical theory and critical literary theory. This study is being done in order to ascertain the conscious and subconscious influence of the author.

The Effect Of Two Exercise Programs On Positional Kinesthetic Awareness In College Varsity Swimmers, Brenda Dianne Glascock

Master's Theses

The following study was undertaken to determine if Standard and Kinesthetic swimming training would produce an effect on positional kinesthetic awareness of male competitive swimmers at the college level. It was hoped both methods would produce a positive effect, but that Kinesthetic training would prove superior.


Legal Malpractice: A Survey Of The Virginia Law, J. Rodney Johnson Apr 1977

Legal Malpractice: A Survey Of The Virginia Law, J. Rodney Johnson

Law Faculty Publications

A great deal has been written during the past several years about the increasing number of professional liability actions that are being brought against attorneys by their former clients. Indeed, some commentators have taken the position that a legal malpractice "crisis", similar to the medical malpractice crisis that has so adversely affected physicians in recent years, is imminent for the bar. This short note will turn away from the factual question concerning the existence of such a crisis and look instead at the legal issues that form the basis of an attorney's professional liability exposure in Virginia.


The Transiational Period: Massive Resistance And Norfolkd, Va., Malnie Ijams Payne Apr 1977

The Transiational Period: Massive Resistance And Norfolkd, Va., Malnie Ijams Payne

Honors Theses

Segregation itself was not dead in Virginia, but it took on a more subtle approach. Governor Almond appointed a commission on the same day the schools opened in Norfolk to deal with the problem in a different way. The commission brought forth the Perrow or "freedom of choice" plan, lettin gparents decide if their children would attend an integrated school. No, segregation was not dead, it had just gone into hiding. When and if segregation ned altogether, whether it be "dejure" (by law) or "defacto" (by the fact), the transition from past attitudes of racial superiority to a "colorless" society ...


Wit And Humor In The Slave Narratives, Daryl Cumber Dance Apr 1977

Wit And Humor In The Slave Narratives, Daryl Cumber Dance

English Faculty Publications

This passage suggests something of the nature of Black humor and the function it has served, not only in the slave narratives, but in the folk tales and throughout the history of recorded literature from William Wells Brown to Amiri Baraka. The life revealed in all of these sources is shown to often be alternately degrading and courageous, tragic and absurdly comic, hopeless and yet enduring; indeed that life could hardly ever be termed merely amusing. And the Black character, though he may be seen to laugh, can hardly be deemed carefree, unbothered, satisfied, even truly happy. Indeed the paradox ...


Oliver Cromwell And The Monarchy, Neil R. Bryant Apr 1977

Oliver Cromwell And The Monarchy, Neil R. Bryant

Honors Theses

It is easy to portray Cromwell as some kind of Machiavellian plotter bent upon the achievement of personal gain through coercion, even murder, yet as Wingfied-Stratford noted, it was possible for Charles to save himself and his crown, but "Charles was more resolved to die than Oliver Cromwell to kill him." Cromwell and the other like minded members of the army were forced to depose and kill the King by Charles himself. Political, social, and most particularly, religious forces combined to pressure Cromwell into a long and agonizing decision, but when once firmly convinced of the moral rightness of his ...

Modernization In The Virginia General Assembly : The Commission On The Legislative Process 1972-73, Richard Kirk Jonas

Master's Theses

Of the forces which led to institutional modernization in the Virginia General Assembly in the early 1970's, the Commission on the Legislative Process was one of the most significant. The Commission focused its attention on those administrative, managerial and structural problems which were among the most significant impedi­ ments to the Assembly's efficient operation. In the administrative and managerial areas the Commission had great success. Administrative improvements in staff support were especially significant. Staff support was recommended and subsequently approved for individual legislators, standing committees and the Assembly as a whole.

Law And Tactics In Juvenile Cases, Adrienne E. Volenik

Law Faculty Publications

Preparing a practice manual for legal services and defense attorneys located in all parts of the country is a difficult assignment. Despite differences in state juvenile codes and significant variations in the evolution of case law in each jurisdiction, there are common issues and problems in the juvenile and family law fields. Although this Manual is not designed to answer definitively questions of law that arise in a particular jurisdiction, it does present a comprehensive overview of the issues. In addition, it proposes solutions to the common problems, outlines challenges to improper practices, and suggests tactics to be employed in ...

The Reports Of Charles Lee And John Brown, William Hamilton Bryson

Law Faculty Publications

The reports of Virginia cases from 1784 to 1794 compiled by Charles Lee and those of John Brown, which cover the period 1791 to 1799 in the Virginia Court of Appeals, are published for the first time here. Many of the cases in Lee's Reports and some in Brown's Reports have not been reported elsewhere, and the others supplement the rather brief case reports made by Bushrod Washington and Daniel Call. During the period of these reports, the judges of the court of appeals usually gave their opinions immediately after the attorneys had concluded their arguments; in the ...
