Undialectical conclusions : Adorno, his Habermasian critics, non-identity and the culture industry

Morgan, Ben January 1994 (has links)
My thesis is a critique of Adorno's method that stays true to the dialectical spirit of his philosophy precisely by calling it in question. It opens, in Part I, with an account of Habermasian objections to negative dialectics. Habermas is concerned that Adorno's assault on rationality is so allembracing that it undermines the very standards it requires rationally to legitimate its critique. Adorno consciously embraces this self-undermining position. But Habermas believes its aporias, however self-conscious, to be misguided because a less paradoxical standard was close to hand. Language itself could have supplied negative dialectics with the norms it needed to criticize the abuses of instrumental reason. If Adorno is not logically forced to adopt an aporetic position, the question arises why a philosopher so gifted should manoeuvre himself into a theoretical dead-end. Habermas's answer to this, in the essay on Dialektik der Aufklärung included in Der philosophische Diskurs der Moderne, is that Adorno illicitly privileges one of the three distinct logics of modernity, inappropriately judging cognitive and moral discourses by aesthetic criteria. When compared to the subject's awe-struck contemplation of a work of art, any more practical intervention in the world is bound to appear crude and instrumental. [continued in text ...]

The principal purposes of this study were to investigate the persistence of therapeutic change during the posttherapy period and the client variables associated with the persistence of therapeutic change. Secondary attention was given to the analysis of change and associated variables during the actual treatment period. Thirty outpatient, psychotherapy clients were studied and their relative change of status at termination and six-month follow-up was assessed through percent gain and residual change score analysis. Emphasizing the probability of change, the vast majority of clients (97%), using the percent gain analysis, and a substantial minority (30%), using residual change analysis, gained significantly during the treatment period. These differing results were attributed to the "outlier" effect, in which 17% of the clients did not evidence regression toward the mean, and thus made residual change an overly conservative estimate of improvement. Additionally, the low correlation between the residual change scores and the Follow-Up Rating supported this position. A majority (73%) maintained or continued to gain during the posttherapy period, using the residual gain analysis, while a majority (77%) maintained or continued to gain during the posttherapy period, using the percent gain analysis. Socioeconomic status, age, total psychotherapy sessions, initial neuroticism, and initial extroversion were identified as predictors of positive change in status at termination and follow-up. Socioeconomic status, negative life events, marital change, total psychotherapy sessions, initial neuroticism, and age were identified as variables discriminating between positive change and negative change in status groups. A number of limitations for this study were incorporated in implications for future research. These suggestions were designed to assist future researchers and therapists in understanding the persistence of change following psychotherapy.


ROGGE, ALLEN EUGENE. January 1983 (has links)
A perspective for the archaeology of the 1980s is developed based upon the conclusion that we have entered an era of big archaeology analogous to the advent of big science in the 1950s. The birth of big archaeology coincided with a significant paradigm shift that brought us processual archaeology, but the creation of the field of cultural resource management altered the nature of archaeological research even more drastically. The scope and scale of big archaeology are defined and problems challenging this new style of archaeology are identified. The most serious is one of managing research more efficiently. To provide a framework for assessing the current status of our discipline an "external" history of American archaeology is outlined by identifying three earlier paradigms and reviewing the context of research during each. These include (1) an early 19th century paradigm focused on the origin of American Indians and more generally racial diversity, (2) a late 19th century captivation with sociocultural evolution, and (3) an early to mid-20th century enthusiasm for defining culture areas and chronologies. This review shows that our most recent paradigm shift and the rise of cultural resource management, as the dominant institutional base of research support, are not dissimilar to changes associated with each of the earlier paradigms. However the level of research funding during the current paradigm has exceeded the historic growth trend tremendously, thus creating big archaeology. An in-depth case study of the 15-year history of the cultural resource program associated with the Central Arizona Project is presented to show how one example of big archaeology originated and evolved. Trends of growth and increasingly intensive survey and salvage are documented and evaluated. (An appended annotated bibliography presents the data for this analysis.) The experience of big science is reviewed to provide insight into the issues challenging big archaeology. Several structural problems in the current context of archaeological research are highlighted and strategies for attacking them are broached.

Process analysis of basic allowance for housing (BAH) within the military personnel, Marine Corps (MPMC) appropriation

Vaden, Dillon D. 03 1900 (has links)
Rs. This elimination would allow the services theability to avoid execution bills associated with BAH shortfalls. The current BAH program meets itsgoal of providing service members fair compensation for housing / however, the current PPBE system,information flow, and technology need adjustments to allow for a more efficient BAH program.

A module for employing human systems integration into the Rapid Equipping Force (REF)

Mack, Demetrius D. 12 1900 (has links)
Human Systems Integration Report / The rapidly changing complexity of the Global War on Terrorism has changed the approach to equipping forward deployed military forces. Combatant Commanders conducting operations now require timely materiel solutions to enhance mission capabilities and reduce risk for individual Soldiers. To address this challenge the U.S. Army established the Rapid Equipping Force (REF) to assess emerging requirements, to propose solutions to those requirements, and to implement those solutions in an expdient time frame. Unfortunately, the REF lacks a consistent analytical methodology for developing alternative materiel solutions. To address the need for a Human Systems Integration analysis method, the authors developed an Assessment Based Rapid Acquisition HSI Analysis Tool (ABRAHAM) capable of generating tailored surveys and evaluating these surveys for unacceptable risks to Soldiers. To validate ABRAHAM's concept and content, ABRAHAM was showcased in three Department of Defense settings, the Human Factors Engineering Technical Advisory Group, the REF, and the United States Marine Corps' Operational Test and Evaluation Activity. The ABRAHAM appears to fill a gap in the current library of HSI tools. Based on the feedback provided during the product showcases, there is sufficient interest and tech nological maturity to futher develop ABRAHAM to serve both the traditional and rapid acquisition processes.
