Sociological Introspection And Emotional Experience, Carolyn Ellis Dec 1990

Sociological Introspection And Emotional Experience, Carolyn Ellis

Carolyn Ellis

Although social constructionists now study emotions, they neglect what emotion feels like and how it is experienced. This paper argues that social constructionists can and should study how private and social experience are fused in felt emotions. Resurrecting introspection (conscious awareness of awareness or self-examination) as a systematic sociological technique will allow social constructionists to examine emotion as a product of the individual processing of meaning as well as socially shared cognitions. Examining introspection as a sociological process, this paper argues that introspection can generate interpretive materials from self and others useful for understanding the lived experience of emotions. Findings ...

"Caritas Christi Urget Nos": The Urgent Challenges Of Charity In Seventeenth Century France, Edward R. Udovic Dec 1990

"Caritas Christi Urget Nos": The Urgent Challenges Of Charity In Seventeenth Century France, Edward R. Udovic

What Ship Goes There: The Flood Narratives In The Gilgamesh Epic And Genesis Considered In Light Of Ancient Near Eastern Temple Ideology, Steven W. Holloway Dec 1990

What Ship Goes There: The Flood Narratives In The Gilgamesh Epic And Genesis Considered In Light Of Ancient Near Eastern Temple Ideology, Steven W. Holloway

Steven W Holloway

Despite efforts made to understand the Mesopotamian and Genesis flood narratives as cosmogonies, the architecture and religious symbolism of the arks remain a scholarly embarrassment. Comparisons of the design of the arks described in Gilgamesh XI and Genesis 6—8 traditionally have focused on the sharp incompatibility of their dimensions. I shall attempt to demonstrate by a close


Oberlin's Sierra Leone Saltcellar: Documenting A Bicultural Dialogue, Kathy Curnow Dec 1990

Oberlin's Sierra Leone Saltcellar: Documenting A Bicultural Dialogue, Kathy Curnow

Kathy Curnow

Oberlin College's Allen Art Museum owns an ivory saltcellar made by a West African artist for a Portuguese client in the late 15th or early 16th century in Sierra Leone. The artist had to consider what foreign and local features to include in this export piece; it conforms in shape to European cups or chalices and depicts some Portuguese, but also includes what appears to be a local motif of dogs confronting snakes. The facial style is decidedly local, resembling the prognathous faces of contemporaneous stone sculptures. The saltcellar is topped with an image of the kneeling Virgin Mary ...

Review Essay Of Two Books On The History Of Science, Charles Kay Smith Dec 1990

Review Essay Of Two Books On The History Of Science, Charles Kay Smith

Charles Kay Smith

Contrary to what I was taught in high school in the mid-1940s, science is no longer defined as an inductive methodology for immaculately conceiving culture-free truth after sifting through a huge data base of objective facts. For without some prior hypothesis to guide her, a scientist would not be able to decide which facts were relevant. Nowadays hypotheses can come from anywhere in the imagination or culture within which the scientist is working. The importance of a scientific hypothesis is that it be framed in such a way that it can be falsified when tested. Science now has a history ...
