My IRB Nightmare September 2014 There’s a screening test for bipolar disorder. You ask patients a bunch of things like “Do you ever feel really happy, then really sad?”. If they say ‘yes’ to enough of these questions, you start to worry. Some psychiatrists love this test. There was a study that supposedly proved this test worked. So I complained to some sympathetic doctors and professors, and they asked “Why not do a study?” Why not do a study? For (it would turn out) a whole host of excellent reasons that I was about to learn. A spring in my step, I journeyed to my hospital’s Research Department, hidden in a corner office just outside the orthopaedic ward. “I want to do a study,” I said. She looked skeptical. I had to admit I hadn’t, so off I went. I went back to the corner office, Study Investigator Certification in hand. The lady still looked skeptical. Mere resident doctors weren’t allowed to do studies on their own. Finally, there was only one doctor left – Dr. “Sure Scott,” he told me. October 2014 Dr.

Academic Activists Send a Published Paper Down the Memory Hole In the highly controversial area of human intelligence, the ‘Greater Male Variability Hypothesis’ (GMVH) asserts that there are more idiots and more geniuses among men than among women. Darwin’s research on evolution in the nineteenth century found that, although there are many exceptions for specific traits and species, there is generally more variability in males than in females of the same species throughout the animal kingdom. Evidence for this hypothesis is fairly robust and has been reported in species ranging from adders and sockeye salmon to wasps and orangutans, as well as humans. Darwin had also raised the question of why males in many species might have evolved to be more variable than females, and when I learned that the answer to his question remained elusive, I set out to look for a scientific explanation. So far, so good. Coincidentally, at about the same time, anxiety about gender-parity erupted in Silicon Valley. On September 4, Sergei sent me a weary email.
Главная ложь психологии, живой труп и трое родителей Будущее уже здесь, просто оно неравномерно распределено. Уильям Гибсон 1. В эксперименте, который психолог Филип Зимбардо провел в 1971 году, набранных по объявлению молодых добровольцев случайным образом разделили на две группы, а потом поместили в импровизированную тюрьму — одних в качестве заключенных, а других в качестве надсмотрщиков. С тех пор Стэнфордский тюремный эксперимент служит иллюстрацией того, что поведение человека зависит не столько от его личных качеств, сколько от навязанной ему социальной роли, которую он вынужден играть в силу особенностей человеческой психологии. И вот, через 47 лет, найдены документы, которые показывают, что все было совсем не так. Обнаружил их французский экономист, социолог и режиссер Тибо ле Тексье, который собирался снимать документальный фильм об этом эксперименте. Самое поразительно в этой истории то, что Корпи и другие участники эксперимента уже пытались рассказать обо всем этом журналистам, но никто не хотел их слушать. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7.
APA privacy patriot act Welcome to 'CE Corner' “The NSA has built an infrastructure that allows it to intercept almost everything . . . . I can get your emails, passwords, phone records, credit cards.” — Edward Snowden Protecting clients' privacy is clearly one of psychologists' top ethical priorities. Unfortunately, with today's ever-evolving technology, such guidance may not be enough. This article gives an overview of the current record-keeping and communication regulations and guidelines, looks at new threats to client data, discusses the ethical considerations psychologists face, and advocates for the foundation of best practices to prevent breaches of client data.

Ten essential principles for education – dczook I should say up front that in writing this I am not representing or speaking on behalf of the University of California, Berkeley. I’m representing my own brain, which is sort of like its own little neuronal campus, at least when it’s in session. Which it is. Two things came together this past spring semester at the University of California, Berkeley, that led me to rethink and reflect upon the the role of education in the endless endeavor to make the world a better place. The second thing that happened was that UC Berkeley, like so many other college campuses, was in the midst of dealing with the tense environment of what had been framed — erroneously in my opinion — as the debate over free speech. It was in the context of these two parallel moments, the coming together of Global Studies and the breaking apart of the university into deeply divided ideological camps, that I began to rethink and reconsider what the former could offer to address and confront the latter. The list 1. 2. 3.
What did Hannah Arendt really mean by the banality of evil? Can one do evil without being evil? This was the puzzling question that the philosopher Hannah Arendt grappled with when she reported for The New Yorker in 1961 on the war crimes trial of Adolph Eichmann, the Nazi operative responsible for organising the transportation of millions of Jews and others to various concentration camps in support of the Nazi’s Final Solution. Arendt found Eichmann an ordinary, rather bland, bureaucrat, who in her words, was ‘neither perverted nor sadistic’, but ‘terrifyingly normal’. He acted without any motive other than to diligently advance his career in the Nazi bureaucracy. Eichmann was not an amoral monster, she concluded in her study of the case, Eichmann in Jerusalem: A Report on the Banality of Evil (1963). Instead, he performed evil deeds without evil intentions, a fact connected to his ‘thoughtlessness’, a disengagement from the reality of his evil acts. This wasn’t Arendt’s first, somewhat superficial impression of Eichmann.
