The Language of the State of the Union

Click on any individual word and observe how frequently each president employed it. Sort by DATE to see how the word’s use has evolved over time, and by DENSITY to rank the presidents by their propensity to use that particular word. Click on any of the colored bars to summon a list of all the times that the corresponding president used the word in a State of the Union address.

Soi-même comme un autre

Soi-même comme un autre est un ouvrage du philosophe Paul Ricoeur paru au Seuil en 1990. Constatant la disparition de l'ego de l'idéalisme de Descartes ou Kant, il s'efforce de refonder l'ego, le Soi-même, mais désormais en référence permanente à l'Autre. « l'Autre n'est pas seulement la contrepartie du Même, mais appartient à la constitution intime de son sens » (p380). Paul Ricoeur fait dialoguer de multiples traditions de pensées (Philosophie de l'action, narratologie, philosophie analytique, phénoménologie, psychanalyse...) et de multiples philosophes; son œuvre constitue un bon exemple des constructions philosophiques de la fin du XXe siècle, refusant de s'arrêter à une interprétation définitive et préférant intégrer largement les philosophes "autres" dans une "méthode fragmentaire qui a constamment été la nôtre" (p345).

10 Psychological Studies That Will Change What You Think You Know About Yourself

Despite our best attempts to "know thyself," the truth is that we often know astonishingly little about our own minds, and even less about the way others think. As Charles Dickens once put it, “A wonderful fact to reflect upon, that every human creature is constituted to be that profound secret and mystery to every other.” Psychologists have long sought insights into how we perceive the world and what motivates our behavior, and they've made enormous strides in lifting that veil of mystery.

Aside from providing fodder for stimulating cocktail-party conversations, some of the most famous psychological experiments of the past century reveal universal and often surprising truths about human nature. Here are 10 classic psychological studies that may change the way you understand yourself. We all have some capacity for evil. The Adventures of Fallacy Man.

Booth in The Rhetoric of Fiction.[1][2] While unreliable narrators are almost by definition first-person narrators, arguments have been made for the existence of unreliable second- and third-person narrators, especially within the context of film and televison.

Verbal Aikido – Using empathy to disarm agressiveness

Archer Verbal Aikido is a style of conflict transformation and resolution that involves treating the 'attacker' as a partner rather than an adversary. It may sound counter-intuitive at first, but protecting both yourself and the other is fundamental for the preservation of a balanced relationship - in the words of the founder: 'If you seek to dominate, you've already lost'! But what's often suprising is how effective the use of empathy is in disarming verbal attacks and reaching a positive emotional result in an exchange.

If you're already familiar with Aikido you may already know that the physical approach simply demonstrates what is possible on so many other levels – emotional, intellectual, verbal and so on. In the peace education training specifically designed to transform verbal attacks, as developped by author and trainer Luke Archer, the 'art' is simplfied into three steps, making it easy for even children to grasp and use in everyday life: Science Of Persuasion 1280x720 Master.
