Different cultures may develop morality differently and as such theories such as Kohlberg’s may not be applicable to other parts of the world. A second criticism deals with the potential gender bias component of the moral theory developed by Kohlberg. He established the theory using his empirical studies which were conducted by male researchers using only male participants. Consequently, women tend to remain in stage three, focusing on maintaining relationships, whereas men focus on abstract principles of law and justices (Gilligan
Socratic Dialogue The following conversation is one that takes place between Socrates and a Psychologist who believes that males are superior to women. John: It is quite unfortunate that we have tunnel vision when trying to achieve an egalitarian society in regards to males and females. Socrates: Before tackling your initial proposition, may I ask how you differentiate between male and female.
I couldn 't agree more with Mays in this article, a women can be more masculine and that does not make her a man, so why does society feel the need to force strict gender roles on everyone. Most people seem to see the world through male/female lenses because it makes them feel more comfortable and they believe it gives them somewhere to belong, but I feel as though we get so immersed in this strictly male/female world that we fail to recognize that some people don 't see through the same lens that we do. As a society we go through our everyday lives assigning genders to the smallest things like pink is for girls and football is for boys. Mays also talks about the topic of assigning genders to ideas in his article he says “We simply
For example, if someone only has a few absences and is rated highly, that positive attribute might leak over into all the other categories of work. , Leniency, giving an undeserved higher rating on the appraisal. This usually happens when there is a desire to avoid controversy, or when there is a pay increase at stake, but it doesn’t help the employee grow. Strictness, giving an inordinately negative appraisal to an employee. A supervisor may have higher standards than the company and use them in the appraisal, resulting in lower score.
The first thing Peggy McIntosh discusses in her paper is that in her own experience men tend to agree that women are disadvantaged but they do not agree that men are over privileged. There are denials that surround male privilege that allow male privilege to go unrecognized. This brings her to the conclusion that if male privilege goes unacknowledged then more than likely white privilege has gone unacknowledged to. Just as males have been taught not to recognize their own privilege she has been taught to not recognize her own white privilege.
If you implement a punishment contingency towards a child's bad behavior you must supplement the reinforcement with punishment in which would be rewarding for the child. Conclusions Therefore, the six basic principles of effective punishment in which are most relevant for consideration when using procedures that may function as punishment to change any child's given behavior where explained how the factors influenced the given contingency to function as a Punisher. Eliminating bad behavior should begin at an early age for a child by implementing the correct punishment and keeping consistent with the behavioral intervention.
Society is meant to be balanced, but that is not the case since people are tethered from their true potential. This is demonstrated when we get introduced to George. “And George, while his intelligence was way above normal, had a little mental handicap… from taking unfair advantage of their brains” (Vonnegut, 1). George is more intelligent then the average person, but he is restrained from using his brilliance. There are people who are daft, and people like George can help them, instead he is forced to scoop down to their level because the government wants everyone to be the
According to Jacobs (1996), literatures based on gender inequalities “often treats all aspects of education disadvantaging women”. However one could argue against Jacobs’ statement that women today are seen to achieve more advantages in education and a reversal in roles between men and women in education is evident in some areas (Buchmann, Diprete and McDaniel, 2007). Women can and do achieve success in education as well as men do. The preconceived idea that females achieve less than their male counterparts has been argued against by studies showing that female motivation and determination to succeed in education equals or often surpasses male achievement (Mickelson, 1989).
Prestige depends on how the individual is perceive by other. If the individual is rich and powerful but is seen by other as unworthy of respect, the individual has lower prestige. This can be seen accord to a variety of occupation. People has higher prestige score occupation require more educational preparation, receive higher incomes and involve more responsibility or supervision over people. Besides that, prestige can also stem from the neighborhood in which one lives or the car one drive.
They observed that the fathers of adolescents who are high achievers belong more to the higher socio-economic background, that is, those with a high ranking occupation, better education and reasonable income than the fathers of the low
Michael King and Colin May emphasise the lack of understanding between BME parties and white, male judges to a have a detrimental impact on BME defendants; they criticised the lack of diversity in the judiciary and believe that “impressionistic accounts and limited empirical evidence suggest that they are more likely to be prosecuted than white people” . It is therefore plausible to assume that having a diverse judiciary across the courts will improve the satisfaction of all parties in a case; particularly, cases that involve Black, Asian, Minority Ethnic (BAME) parties. Recent evidence implies that the Constitutional Reform Act 2005 has not yet achieved the desired impact in making the judiciary more diverse however through a comparative lens the reforms have made a colossal effort to tackle the problem compared to ten years
There are multiple points throughout the book where success is connected to race. Success would mean having a good socioeconomic status and this varies across different races. As previously mentioned, Asian Americans have this stereotype around them that they are supposed to be successful. In contrast to the expected success of Asian Americans, members of other races such as Blacks or Latinos are projected to not be as successful. This idea of success perpetuates negative feelings between races.
