Trouillot argues that this social process of narrating history makes us all amateur historians, learning more of our training and knowledge from likewise amateur historians than from the more recognized academic channels (Trouillot 1995:20).Though we often think of our life narratives as sole... .This is not to devalue the importance of professional historians who are trained to uncover, evaluate, and report on the evidence of the past.These views on the social nature of narrative, particularly the emphasis on shared knowledge to construct a symbolic “space” of narration, binding narrator and audience together in shared understanding of the symbols used, are espoused by some of the leaders in the anthropological study of storytelling, in...

Hebdige, Dick (1979).Huyssen argues that “Pop in the broadest sense was the context in which a notion of the post-modern first took shape, and the most significant trends within postmodernism have challenged modernism’s relentless hostility to mass culture.Subculture: The Meaning of Style, London: Routledge.Andreas Huyssen in his 1984 introduction to postmodernism draws attention to this ‘high’ structuralist preference for the works of high modernism, especially the writing of James Joyce or Mallarme.‘Postmodernism, or the cultural logic of late capitalism’, New Left Review 146. .

This difficulty of recollecting memory brings out the problem of separating what is real past from mythical pasts and, as Huyssen states, reality can become a myth as much as a myth can have a strong sense of reality.As I have already mentioned Huyssen, and as we can confirm in “Burn Sugar” and Amrik, memory is always fragmented, just like the language Philip and Miranda use in their texts.MIRANDA, Ana Amrik, Companhia das Letras, São Paulo, 1997.PHILIP, Marlene Nourbese.RAVETH, Graciela y Marcia Arbex, Departamento de Letras Románicas, PostLit/FALE/UFMG, Belo Horizonte, 2002, pp.

Hawthorn doesn’t waste a moment after the individual’s mention in his direct characterization of Roger Chillingworth.It is clear that the unclear reality of the medicine of the time too was fiendish in character and was never a sight to behold.The procurement of the detailed description that Roger Chillingworth is illustrated with is at the least fiendish.His grotesque qualities and repulsive nature seemingly repels all those around him; however, and miraculously at that, the people of the Puritan settlement welcome the pseudo-physician with open arms.This allows Roger Chillingworth to properly assume the role as antagonist and provide an overbearing darkness to the entire writing.

In addition, the Rogerian Journal of Nursing Science, which was founded in 1974, continues to promote research and application of Rogers’ theory (Parker, 2006, p. 161).So although, Rogers’ Science of Unitary beings has many cultural benefits for nursing, the theory remains unlikely to be used in practice until it gains wider acceptance.These two theories were chosen because they provide differing perspectives on how humans interact with the world, community and healthcare.While these theories have similarities, their differences as models for nursing and in clinical use provide great insight into how important theories are to nursing practice and research.As one of nursing’s leading scientists, Martha Rogers developed the “Martha E.

What will the other franchisees say if they find out that Roy Rogers has allowed Towle to change the concept to meet his local needs?By contrast, Dairy Queen has minimal standardisation and consistency, which has lead to uneven quality and the lack a consistent image.There is always a tension between too little innovation (which can lead to failure to adapt) and too much innovation (which can lead to chaos).But McDonald’s has had a difficult time adapting to new market conditions in the 1990s.But, because Towle was so important and his request was legitimate, Roy Rogers allowed him to pre-package his salads in this urban location – maintaining a focus on salads, but without the space constraints imposed by a full salad bar.

While Dimmesdale’s extreme depression most likely causes his fatal disease, Chillingworth’s vengeful attitude towards Arthur mutates him into a gargoyle whose sole purpose is to frighten away any joy that may exist in Dimmesdale’s life.Roger Chillingworth’s character serves to represent the detrimental side effects that are conceived in a life as a result of continuing in sin without confessing.Show freely to the world, if not your worst, yet some trait whereby the worst may be inferred!” (177).Through the events that occur in the lives of the characters Roger Chillingworth, Arthur Dimmesdale and Hester Prynn, Hawthorne conveys his opinion that confessing and repenting sin is better than hiding sin.He also explains that, “…old Roger Chil...

Corey stated that REBT is a confrontational therapy with advantages and disadvantages and that it must cope with the advantages and disadvantages that this brings.What defines the success of the theory is how well it caters to critical issues such as the influence of nature vs. nurture on the foundations of personality, the potency of reason in human behaviour and the possibility of fundamental personality change.Both Ellis and Rogers have contributed great things to modern psychology.REBT theorists should be aware that the human cognitive architecture is heterogeneous and in consequence, that it is less probable that the causes of our responses can be explained by using only a few cognitive constructs (Dryden, 2003) .In REBT therapy can...

These consequences demonstrate that empathy is of great value and use in all helping relationships and should not be confined to the boundaries of psychotherapy (Rogers, 1980).A comprehensive understanding based on the exploration of empathy includes a process of the inner experiencing of another individuals world from that person’s perspective with a feeling of comfort in this world, which enables the therapist to move discretely through this world, vicariously experiencing what the client is experiencing with no elements of judgement.Empathy is related to the positive outcome of psychotherapy for a client, this can range from a person with severe psychosis to one with no clinical manifestations (Rogers, 1980).The role of empathy in psy...

Pearl was a depiction of the conflict purity versus sin, Roger Chillingworth was a depiction of the conflict good versus evil, and Reverend Arthur Dimmesdale was a depiction of the conflict love versus hate.It is in this way that Roger Chillingworth's specific use in the novel is to portray the conflict good versus evil.(Hawthorne 140).Ultimately, Hawthorne shows that through conflicts difficult to overcome, the true nature of individuals breaks through the surface and shows itself to the world.There are three major conflicts each for which Hawthorne created a specific main character to illustrate: Pearl, Hester's illegitimate daughter, depicts the conflict purity versus sin, Roger Chillingworth, Hester's former husband, depicts good ver...

Nevertheless, the outlining importance of both of these theories cannot be ignored.Freudian psychology is loosely based on individual and sometimes on extremely rare cases while the Maslow/Rogers humanistic approach has been seen as socially biased towards western societies and cultures.Despite the fact that they have been extremely significant to the development of the discipline, flaws in their methodological structures are apparent.In conclusion, theoretical approaches to psychology, the humanistic and the psychoanalytical have many strengths and weaknesses.Self-actualization being at the top of pyramid is only representative of needs of certain cultures or societies.
