Behavioral and Experiential Self-Regulations in Psychological Well-Being under Proximal and Distal Goal Conditions  [PDF]
Peter Horvath, Vanessa McColl
Psychology (PSYCH) , 2013, DOI: 10.4236/psych.2013.412141

This study examined the relationship of goal-related components of cybernetic, behavioral, and experiential self-regulations to psychological well-being under two types of conditions, the pursuit of intrinsic goals in general and specific intrinsic goals for the academic term. In an online survey, undergraduates (N = 186) completed global measures of psychological well-being, behavioral and experiential self-regulations, and rated themselves on goal-related self-regulatory components. Correlations indicated that most of the cybernetic, behavioral and experiential self-regulatory variables were associated with each other and with well-being. In terms of the goal-related self-regulatory components, when pursuing intrinsic goals more generally, the experiential self-regulatory component of enjoyment of the activity predicted well-being. However, when pursuing intrinsic term goals, the cybernetic self-regulatory component of perceived goal progress and the behavioral self-regulatory component of self-reinforcement for goal progress predicted well-being. The findings extend theoretical conceptualizations of psychological well-being by integrating compatibilities between cybernetic, behavioral, experiential self-regulatory processes and motivational conditions.

Variation of Hyporheic Temperature Profiles in a Low Gradient Third-Order Agricultural Stream—A Statistical Approach  [PDF]
Vanessa Beach, Eric W. Peterson
Open Journal of Modern Hydrology (OJMH) , 2013, DOI: 10.4236/ojmh.2013.32008
Abstract: Sediment size governs advection, controlling the hydraulic conductivity of the stratum, and conduction, influencing the amount of surface area in contact between the sediment particles. To understand the role of sediment particle size on thermal profiles within the hyporheic zone, a statistical approach, involving general summary statistics and time series cross-correlation, was employed. Data were collected along two riffles: Site 1: gravel (d50 = 3.9 mm) and Site 2: sand (d50 =0.94 mm).Temperature probe grids collected 15-minute temperature data at 30, 60, 90, and140cm below the streambed surface over a 6 month period. Surface water and air temperature were recorded. Diel temperature signal penetration depth was limited to the upper 30cm of the streambed and was driven by advection. Surface seasonal trends were detected at greater depths, indicating that thermal pulses are transmitted initially by advection and by conduction to areas deeper in the hyporheic zone. Site 1 showed a high degree of thermal heterogeneity via a localized downwelling zone within a gaining stream environment. Site 2 exhibited a vertically and horizontally homogenized thermal environment attributed to an increased amount of sand sediments that limited advection and significant groundwater discharge that mediated the effects of downwelling surface water.
Unemployed women and their roles - Revisiting old debates and german examples
Ex aequo , 2008,
Abstract: the increase in women?s participation in the labour market over recent decades allows us to consider implications of changed situations not only within work but also on the margins of the labour market and when unemployed. this paper considers women?s coping strategies when unemployed in light of other roles that they might hold. by utilising the example of the formerly socialist, eastern part of germany, where women?s involvement in the labour market was encouraged and even enforced, underlying assumptions about how women cope with unemployment are analysed. the centrality of employment in east german unemployed women?s biographies results in responses to redundancy that differ from those in the west. it is suggested that the social construction of gender via work identities and the individual and social importance attached to employment are central when determining the responses and coping strategies of the unemployed. moreover, there are indications that alternatives to employment can include work based and non-gendered roles.
Alpha (Osorno) , 2010, DOI: 10.4067/S0718-22012010000200002
Abstract: nietzsche’s “aristocratic radicalism” has been interpreted to mean either that nietzsche favors returning to pre-modern political models of aristocratic society which are completely incompatible with modern democracy, or that aristocratism is a radical variant of liberal individualism, an aesthetic and apolitical attitude towards life. in this paper i argue that nietzsche’s aristocratism fits neither of the above interpretations. rather, nietzsche understands aristocratic society in spiritual-cultural terms. in the light of an analysis of nobility, an aristocratic society and culture must be a horizontal ordering of equally respected powers for and against each other that aims at the elevation of the significance of the singular individual’s responsibility.
Alpha (Osorno) , 2009, DOI: 10.4067/S0718-22012009000100006
Abstract: this article traces the debate on the value of improvement in contemporary democratic theory through a discussion of the controversial interpretations of john rawls and stanley cavell of schopenhauer as educator by friedrich nietzsche. it argues that the readings of perfectionism offered y both rawls and cavell poorly capture the nietzschean notion of individual freedom as responsibility. the latter may turns out to be of value for modern democratic life not in virtud of, but despite the fact that it constitutes an alternative to the liberal conceptions of culture and individual freedom.
Revista de ciencia política (Santiago) , 2006, DOI: 10.4067/S0718-090X2006000200009
Abstract: this article investigates and compares the value and significance that arendt and nietzsche attribute to the role played by memory and by the promise in constituting the political and in safeguarding the freedom and plurality of human action
The concept of the gene in psychiatric genetics and its consequences for the concept of mental illness

Abstract: Il est difficile de déterminer les répercussions de la génétique moderne sur le concept de maladie mentale. Des projets de recherche tentent de découvrir une corrélation statistique significative entre le diagnostique d’une maladie et des loci génétiques ou des endophénotypes. Jusqu’à présent, on n’a pas identifié d’allèles ou de mutations causant la maladie mentale. En attendant, l’expression “vulnérabilité génétique” est utilisée pour faire référence aux relations entre les bases génétiques et la maladie. Cette expression sert de paramètre temporaire et résume les relations complexes, observées en génétique moderne, entre l’ADN et la moindre fonction cellulaire. Selon des modèles génétiques complexes, telle la théorie systémique de l’ADN, il ne sera pas possible d’identifier les causes génétiques sans une connaissance précise des facteurs modulant l’expression des gènes. Ainsi, l’implication de la génétique dans le concept de maladie mentale ne pourra pas être définie sans nouvelles avancées en psychologie et biologie du développement. Aujourd’hui, la complexité des relations entre l’ADN et l’environnement n’est pas reconnue en psychologie. Des ébauches d’explications pour en développer la compréhension peuvent être apportées par les études développementales et de psycho-phylo-génèse. Un concept interdisciplinaire sur les bases biologiques de la psyché est requis.
“Strange Beasts… in taste Chinese” : Le go t chinois dans l’Angleterre du XVIIIe siècle ou l’esthétique de l’étrange “Strange Beasts… in taste Chinese” The Chinese taste in 18th-century England or the aesthetics of the strange

Abstract: The wonders and riches of China brought back to England by the East Indiamen at the end of the 17th century and in the 18th century triggered a deep interest for things Chinese. Indeed, England was hit by the Chinese taste in the decorative arts, emblematised by the playful chinoiserie style. This taste nonetheless evolved during the 18th century, and although it remained very popular throughout the period, it underwent some sharp criticisms. What was the nature of the English reception of this style? Why was it so welcomed, and at the same time seen so suspicious? This paper explores the ambivalence which lay in the reception of the Chinese style, and examines what was perceived as the lure and threat of Chinese exoticism through the concepts of strangeness and foreignness.
Tagungsessay: ffentliche und private Erz hlungen Conference Essay: Public and Private Narratives Ensayo: Narrativas públicas y privadas

Forum : Qualitative Social Research , 2004,
Abstract: Dieser Tagungsessay besch ftigt sich mit einer Konferenz über Erz hlung. Das Feld der Erz hlforschung ist von Natur aus interdisziplin r, was bestimmte St rken und Schw chen zur Folge hat, die w hrend der Konferenz evident geworden sind. So fehlte zwar teilweise Koh renz angesichts der unz hligen Ans tze zur Definitionen von Narration und zur Erz hlanalyse. Zugleich wurde aber auch das Potenzial sichtbar, das sich ergeben kann, wenn diese Schw che überwunden wird und ein fruchtbarer Austausch entsteht in einem wahrhaft interdisziplin ren Feld: Konzepte und Theorien k nnen von einer Disziplin zur anderen "wandern" und dabei neue Bedeutung gewinnen sowie neue Einsichten erm glichen. URN: urn:nbn:de:0114-fqs0401192 This essay examines a conference on narrative. The field of narrative studies is by nature interdisciplinary, which leads to certain strengths and weaknesses, both of which were evident during the conference. On the one hand, as a result of the myriad approaches to and definitions of narrative and narrative analysis, the conference perhaps lacked a sense of coherence. However, the conference showed that overriding this weak-ness in narrative studies is the fruitful cross-fertilization that can occur when a field is truly interdisciplinary. Thus, concepts and theories can and do travel from one discipline to another, gaining new meaning and providing new insight on the way. URN: urn:nbn:de:0114-fqs0401192 Este ensayo examina una conferencia sobre narrativa. El campo de los estudios narrativos es por naturaleza interdisciplinario, lo que le somete a ciertas fortalezas y debilidades, según fue evidenciado durante la conferencia. Por una parte, como resultado de los innumerables enfoques y las definiciones de narración y análisis narrativo, quizás la conferencia careció de cierta coherencia. En todo caso, la conferencia mostró que primordialmente esa debilidad de los estudios narrativos es la fructífera fertilización cruzada que tiene lugar cuando un campo es verdaderamente interdisciplinario. Así, los conceptos y las teorías pueden y están moviéndose de una disciplina a otra, ganando nuevos significados y proporcionando nuevas aportaciones por el camino. URN: urn:nbn:de:0114-fqs0401192
