Social Laws : An Outline of Sociology

By: Howard C. Warren

Economic Theory Literature

Excerpt: Editor?s Preface. It goes without saying that no introduction of M. Tarde is necessary to English and American readers who are versed in current sociological discussions.

Improving Survey Quality through Pretesting

By: Theresa J. Demaio

Statistical Reference Document

Excerpt: As the vehicle of data collection, the questionnaire is one of the critical components in achieving high quality in a survey. The best of sampling schemes and estimation strategies will not yield accurate data if the answers provided by the respondent are not meaningful. During the last decade or so, there has been increased emphasis on building quality into the questionnaire design process through pretesting. This has been approached from an operational perspec...

Plos One : Abnormal Neural Responses to Social Exclusion in Schizo...

Studies on healthy subjects have implicated the medial prefrontal cortex (mPFC), a region involved in emotional and social information processing, in neural responses to social exclusion. Impairments in social interactions are common in schizophrenia and are associated with reduced quality of life. Core symptoms such as delusions usually have a social content. Howev...

Plos One : Are Autobiographical Memories Inherently Social Evidenc...

By: James Kilner

Description : The story of our lifetime – our narrative self – is constructed from our autobiographical memories. A central claim of social psychology is that this narrative self is inherently social : When we construct our lives, we do so in a real or imagined interaction. This predicts that self-referential processes which are involved in recall of autobiographical memories overlap with processes involved in social interactions. Indeed, previous functional MRI studies ...

Ethnic Discrimination : A Critical Survey of Economic Explanations

By: Jomo K. S., Professor

Economics

Ethnic discrimination has not been the subject of much theoretical consideration in economics.

The Journal grew from 1,000 copies to 3,500 copies per issue over a period of six years. Hana Hou is a collection of articles from all twelve issues that represents the breadth of topics the Journal explored. We saw this journal as a chance to improve education and bring important information, strategi...

Teaching and learning can—and does—go on in strange places. For so long, parents and teachers delegated learning to a formal setting with four walls, books, and a teacher teaching. Yet, those same parents and teachers taught children many unplanned—and often unintended—attitudes, language, and knowledge outside those walls. We learn from everything we do and the keys are our models and the richness of the learning environment. The three articles in this section descr...

By: K. Simonsen; L. Koefoed

Description: Department of Environmental, Social and Spatial Change, Roskilde University, Denmark. Non-western minorities in Europe, one can argue, are experiencing particularly vulnerable processes of subjectification and identification.
