Marx's theory of alienation The 19th-century German intellectual K.H. Marx (1818–83) identified and described four types of Entfremdung (social alienation) that afflict the worker under capitalism. Entfremdung (estrangement) is Karl Marx’s theory of alienation, that designates the types of human relations which are not controlled by their participants and the ensuing results thereof. Such relations present themselves as the separation of things that naturally belong together; and the placement of antagonism between things that are properly in harmony. Alienation (Entfremdung) is the systemic result of living in a socially stratified society, because being a mechanistic part of a social class alienates a person from his and her humanity. Type of alienation[edit] Let us suppose that we had carried out production as human beings. The four types of Entfremdung are (I) Alienation of the worker from the work — from the product of his labour (II) Alienation of the worker from working — from the act of producing Communism

Other Concept[edit] A person's definition of the 'Other' is part of what defines or even constitutes the self (in both a psychological and philosophical sense) and other phenomena and cultural units. It has been used in social science to understand the processes by which societies and groups exclude 'Others' whom they want to subordinate or who do not fit into their society. The concept of 'otherness' is also integral to the comprehending of a person, as people construct roles for themselves in relation to an 'other' as part of a process of reaction that is not necessarily related to stigmatization or condemnation.[citation needed] Othering is imperative to national identities, where practices of admittance and segregation can form and sustain boundaries and national character. Othering helps distinguish between home and away, the uncertain or certain. History[edit] The concept that the self requires the Other to define itself is an old one and has been expressed by many writers: See also[edit]

scraping - How to Grow as a Designer or Developer - Noupe Design Blog Jun 22 2011 For many of us in the design and development communities, when we first begin down this path, we tend to go in hungry searches for knowledge and like a sponge we soak up all we can find. However, at times we can come to a plateau where we comfortably set up our virtual camp and we work from this place. Our quest for knowledge somewhat settles as does our thirst as we become distracted by trying to make our mark and establish ourselves in the community. We do this so that we might find a steady source of income through our skills that we have nurtured and grown to this point. And it is through this time consuming process that the growth of our skillsets ends up on the proverbial back burner. This is not a blanket pandemic, but it does happen, and it is in these times that we need the subtle reminder that we should always be moving forward, reaching for that next plateau.

When We Are a Fool to Ourselves Accessing our own higher mental processes is often difficult. Psychologists have found it easy to manipulate the reasons we give for decisions, judgements or actions. Worse than this, even when we’re not actively being manipulated, we regularly fool ourselves without the need of any encouragement. But are these mistakes systematic in any way? Nisbett and Wilson (1977) provide five factors likely to have a huge effect on how accurately we report our own higher mental processes. 1. Many of our actions, thoughts and feelings are probably motivated by things that happened a long time ago. The reverse is also true. 2. Sometimes the mechanics of our thoughts are just plain weird. There are all sorts of strange biases like this and they make it much harder for us to guess what’s going on in our own minds. 3. Sometimes it’s of vital importance when nothing happens. Conversely it’s much easier to guess that someone doesn’t like us when they walk up and punch us on the nose. 4. 5. References

Distancing effect The distancing effect, more commonly known (earlier) by John Willett's 1964 translation the alienation effect or (more recently) as the estrangement effect (German: Verfremdungseffekt), is a performing arts concept coined by playwright Bertolt Brecht. Brecht first used the term in an essay on "Alienation Effects in Chinese Acting" published in 1936, in which he described it as "playing in such a way that the audience was hindered from simply identifying itself with the characters in the play. Acceptance or rejection of their actions and utterances was meant to take place on a conscious plane, instead of, as hitherto, in the audience's subconscious"[1] Origin[edit] The proper English translation of Verfremdungseffekt is a matter of controversy. In German, Verfremdungseffekt signifies both alienation and distancing in a theatrical context; thus, "theatrical alienation" and "theatrical distancing".

Fremde Das Fremde bezeichnet etwas, das als abweichend von Vertrauten wahrgenommen wird, das heißt aus Sicht dessen, der diesen Begriff verwendet, als etwas (angeblich) Andersartiges oder weit Entferntes. Fremdheit kann positive Assoziationen im Sinne von Exotik oder negative Assoziationen hervorrufen. Menschen, die als in diesem Sinne fremd wahrgenommen werden, werden als Fremde bezeichnet, im Gegensatz zu Bekannten und Vertrauten. Die Antike erkannte das Fremde vor allem in der Dimension der unterschiedlichen Sprache (griechisch: βάρβαρος, bárbaros, Plural βάρβαροι, bárbaroi; der Barbar ist der Fremde, der unverständlich spricht).

scraping - How to Become a Great Finisher - Heidi Grant Halvorson by Heidi Grant Halvorson | 10:01 AM June 22, 2011 The road to hell may or may not be paved with good intentions, but the road to failure surely is. Take a good look at the people you work with, and you’ll find lots of Good Starters — individuals who want to succeed, and have promising ideas for how to make that happen. And then something happens. Does all this sound familiar? More than anything else, becoming a Great Finisher is about staying motivated from a project’s beginning to its end. In their studies, University of Chicago psychologists Minjung Koo and Ayelet Fishbach examined how people pursuing goals were affected by focusing on either how far they had already come (to-date thinking) or what was left to be accomplished (to-go thinking). Intuitively, both approaches have their appeal. Koo and Fishbach’s studies consistently show that when we are pursuing a goal and consider how far we’ve already come, we feel a premature sense of accomplishment and begin to slack off.

Topic: Anger Anger is an emotion characterized by antagonism toward someone or something you feel has deliberately done you wrong. Anger can be a good thing. It can give you a way to express negative feelings, for example, or motivate you to find solutions to problems. But excessive anger can cause problems. Adapted from the Encyclopedia of Psychology What You Can Do Controlling anger before it controls you Anger is a normal, usually healthy emotion we all experience.

Phobia The terms distress and impairment as defined by the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, Fourth Edition (DSM-IV-TR) should also take into account the context of the sufferer's environment if attempting a diagnosis. The DSM-IV-TR states that if a phobic stimulus, whether it be an object or a social situation, is absent entirely in an environment — a diagnosis cannot be made. An example of this situation would be an individual who has a fear of mice (Suriphobia) but lives in an area devoid of mice. Even though the concept of mice causes marked distress and impairment within the individual, because the individual does not encounter mice in the environment no actual distress or impairment is ever experienced. The term phobia is encompassing and usually discussed in terms of specific phobias and social phobias. Classification[edit] Clinical[edit] 1. 2. 3. Phobias vary in severity among individuals.
