Mary Beth Norton is a historian who specializes in women’s history, her interview with Barker-Benfield uncovers her experiences and involvement in discovering the importance of female involvement in the late 17th, early 18th century history. Mary Beth and professor Peter Lapsion’s He Said, She Said article both explain why gender roles were so important in shaping and revealing todays gender morals in society. Mary Beth explains in her interview that in order to get a clear understanding of history, both women and men needed to be included to look at life in the 17th century. Norton clearly states that men and women had secret lives that were written in their dairies. Historians could dissect both genders inner thoughts and experiences and get a true understanding on what troubles they were physically and psychologically dealing with, and use that information to better interpret the human beings mind in early century history.
Introduction Learning enables you as an individual, to gain more knowledge about something which you have never learned about. Learning also has to do with past experiences which are influenced by behavioural changes (Weiten, 2016). There are different types of ways to learn; through, classical conditioning, operant conditioning and observational learning which will be discussed and analysed in the essay. Behaviourism Behaviourism is considered one of the main subjects in psychology and the two main people who founded behaviourism were, Burrhus Frederic Skinner, also known as B.F Skinner and Ivan Pavlov who were famous for the work they did on classical and operant conditioning (Moderato & Presti, 2006). According to Moderato and Presti
Also, Björk has really gotten into the character that the audience would have seen Selma instead of her. Actors have to internalize to get into the character and be the character. They have to live the character’s life and feel what the character is supposed to feel. This proves Socrates’ argument that rhapsodes must be struck by inspiration or possession to efficaciously depict the poet’s words. Socrates also argued that the rhapsode must be knowledgeable: Björk has been in the industry since she was 11 years of age and has admitted that playing Selma was a lot of work because she had to learn how to be Selma to let the audience see Selma instead of Björk.
As defined in the Psychology: Perspectives and Connections textbook, “psychology is the scientific study of thought and behavior” (Feist & Rosenberg, 2011). The two psychologists that have impacted society with their concepts and who are going to be explored in this paper are Erik Erikson and Sigmund Freud. They are two well-known psychologists that have both contributed to the field of psychology and, like most psychologists, have originated from different backgrounds. In this case, their early life and careers have laid the foundation for their path towards the contribution of their theories and concepts to science. To begin with, Erik Erikson was a German-American psychologist and psychoanalyst who was born on June 15, 1902, in Frankfurt,

The study was used as a doctorate qualification, which means the source is set at a good standard. The authors who wrote it both have PhDs in psychology, and they are highly cited by many other authors around the world. Although the source was written in 1999, it is often referred to by other sources to do with this topic, this makes the source a reliable source. 2.3) Early Abuse and the Subtypes of Psychopathy A. Cook (Master's thesis, Pacific University, 2010) The source discusses the relevancy of childhood physical trauma in the development of psychopathic behaviour. The authors concluded that the sample inmates whom acquired the highest Hare Psychopathy Checklist—Revised (PCL-R) scores were found to be those whom had suffered intense childhood physical abuse.
MEN VERSUS WOMEN IN A BRAVE NEW WORLD The novel of Brave New World, written by Aldous Huxley, sparked up much controversy when it was first brought out into the public eye. After all, it explored and shed light on scientific concepts and social constructs that weren’t deemed as possible in the 1930’s; the book touched on genetic enhancement, exquisite technology, along with other scientific and cultural advancements. However, with all these aspects being seen as light years away, the author brought forth concepts we still see in everyday society such as social hierarchy and gender roles. With that being said, while the novel is supposedly the epitome of a perfect utopian society, Huxley makes a point to also emphasize that “natural” aspects
The topic I chose to conduct my research on is the short story “The Story of an Hour”, by Kate Chopin. While reading this story the deeper meaning may not be initially apparent, but after some careful analyzation it is clear what led to Mrs. Mallard’s demise. I have chosen to conduct my research on “The Story of an Hour” because I previously studied it in my Intro to Fiction course last semester and it’s impactful message stood out. The deeper message being communicated through “The Story of an Hour” by Kate Chopin is how oppression by patriarchal forces hinders female independence. If the last line of “The Story of an Hour” is taken in the literal sense, it can be perceived that Mrs. Mallard was not oppressed and was ecstatic that her husband was alive, ultimately being killed by the excitement.
Harriet Martineau and her Influence on Victorian Society Harriet Martineau was the first female sociologist that made many contributions to the field, but were not acknowledged until after her death, and even today she is widely unknown (Bell, 1932). However, she was very well known for her writing, and was famous for it in her time. Her writing even influenced great minds like Edith Abbott, Herbert Spencer, William Sumner, and Lester Ward (Hill, 1993). However, it was not without its consequences. Miss Martineau had an ongoing struggle throughout her life with her feminine gender role and wanting to achieve roles normally occupied by men (Postlethwaite, 1989).
