i Levinasian Ethics and Social Theory: The status of the other Instructor: Dr. Charles Edgley SOCI 3384: Contemporary Sociological Theory Summer 2011 Abstract In this essay, I begin by explaining the concept of the “Me First” theory presented by Jean Baudrillard and how the idea of consumerism is reflected in today’s society. I then will elaborate on consumerism by explaining the idea of hyperconsumption, which is the idea that society is using and consuming more than they actually need. In the second section I attempt to explain Emmanuel Levinas’ idea of the Status of Other and how it relates to self in the post-modern society and how we have an infinite responsibility to Other more than I. I follow that up by discussing Charles H. Cooley’s concept of the looking-glass self. In this concept Cooley proposes the idea that people shape themselves based on other people's perception of them. I end by discussing Baudrillards’ idea of Hyperreality, which is a term that is used to describe that there are people, places, and things that reflect the idea of illusion and fantasy.

Studying the works of many noteworthy historians is shown to expose a story about the tendencies of their thought. It is a work of historiography tracing the development of the American historical profession, identifying the professional norms of their practice, and presenting a series of arguments about the profession's objectives and concerns over the "Objectivity Question". Novick asserts his work has no unifying thesis (17). While this and other efforts at full disclosure are considerable, his stated purpose divulges his goal to do more than merely enlighten the reader. "The book's aim is to provoke my fellow historians to greater self-consciousness about the nature of our work," Novick wrote of his motivation (17).

Box 8882 Alta Loma, CA 91701 Telephone (909) 200-8996 Email: Jonese00@yahoo.com Instructor : Jack McEnry Abstract This paper begins by taking a look at the problems that were caused by employment discrimination and how the Civil Rights Act of 1964 addressed certain issues. Employment candidates were judged on appearance sometimes more heavily that on actual knowledge or skill sets. Today technology is becoming the great equalizer and "blind recruiting" through the utilization of social recruiting tools force a focus on abilities in this increasingly competitive job market. The new challenge for the HRM professional is keeping the organization operating on a fair and proportionately equitable basis internally.
This essay attempts to compare and contrast the functionalist and conflict perspectives and to indicate which of the two is more plausible. The essay will begin by giving a brief history of the theories and the main sociologists that influenced them.

Running head: A NARRATIVE ON HOWARD GARDNER The Road to Multiple Intelligences: A Narrative on Howard Gardner Sheila Thomas Capella University Address: 4901 Far Hills Avenue, D-1 City, State, Zip: Kettering, OH 45429 Phone: 937-626-7145 E-Mail: firstname.lastname@example.org Advisor: Heidi Kopacek Degree: PhD Abstract Although the idea of multiple intelligences is not new, some consider Howard Gardner the father of multiple intelligences (MI) theory. Through a synthesis of literature reviews, this paper narrates the profound events in Gardner’s upbringing, political, social, and educational background that helped shape his ideas, theories, and utility for MI. Outlined and discussed are the seven intelligences and the eight criteria for defining a new intelligence. Also given platform is the lack of empirical evidence for MI theory. This paper culminates with a glimpse at MI implemented in 21st century classrooms and suggestions for establishing a MI learning environment.
