The Goodenough Draw-A-Man Test as a Measure of Interpersonal Adjustment

Description: Since the premises and history of the Draw-A-Man (DAM) seem to indicate a relationship between this technique and adjustment/maladjustment, and since Leary defines maladjustment in terms of interpersonal behavior, the problem to be studied is to attempt to quantitatively relate DAM scores with some objective measure of social adjustment or maladjustment in children.

No Fairy Godmothers: Essays on Life, Love, and Feminism

Description: Heterosexual romance and marriage are institutionalized ideals in our society, set forth, in part, through the portrayal of stereotyped gender roles in fairy tales, such as Cinderella, and by the mainstream media. This thesis explores the cultural messages aimed at women, which impose the necessity of altering oneself to achieve marriage, and offers feminist viewpoints. Using the form of the personal essay, I discuss the ideals of Cinderella, Prince Charming, marriage, and Happily Ever After as unrealistic, though still prevalent, given the popularity of books like The Rules: Time-tested Secrets for Capturing the Heart of Mr. Right, and Princess Diana as Cinderella icon. Essays on my own experience of marriage and divorce supplement the cultural issues, juxtaposing the personal and political toward a new paradigm for relationships.

The common-man theme in the plays of Miller and Wilder

Description: This study emphasizes the private and public struggles of the common man as portrayed in two representative plays by Arthur Miller, Death of a Salesman and The Price, and two by Thornton Wilder, Our Town and The Skin of Our Teeth. These plays demonstrate man's struggle because of failures in responsibility toward self and family and because of his inability to fully appreciate life. Miller concentrates on the pathetic part of Man's nature, caused by a breakdown in human communication. Wilder, however, focuses on the resilient part which allows man to overcome natural disasters and moral transgressions. The timelessness of man's conflict explains the motivations of symbolic character types in these plays and reveals a marked applicability to all average citizens in American society.

A TENTATIVE ESTIMATION OF MAN'S TOLERANCE TO OVERPRESSURES FROM AIR BLAST. Technical Progress Report

Description: Tentative estimates of the sharp''-rising overpressures as a function of duration which represent a lethal hazard to the 70-kg animal 1, 50, and 99% of the time were presented. The predictions were based on interspecies correlations and extrapolations encompassing blast-tolerance data for six mammalian species. The tentative application of the data to indicate human blast tolerance was discussed and relevant uncertainties in the estimates were emphasized. It was also pointed out that biologic tolerance would be different for air-blast pulses having non-ideal wave forms frequently associated with various geometries of exposure. Selected pathophysiological information pertinent to the biological response following blast exposure was given; namely, survival time and selected postshot observations of dogs and goats. (auth)

Social Interest and the Communications Organ Score in Human Figure Drawings

Description: The relationship between social interest and personal adjustment described by Adler seems to imply that the CO score is positively correlated with personal adjustment. If the CO score in a human figure drawing indicates the degree of social interest manifested by an individual, it is reasoned that the CO score will measure that individual's adjustment level.

Values and the quantum conception of man

Description: Classical mechanics is based upon a mechanical picture of nature that is fundamentally incorrect. It has been replaced at the basic level by a radically different theory: quantum mechanics. This change entails an enormous shift in one`s basic conception of nature, one that can profoundly alter the scientific image of man himself. Self-image is the foundation of values, and the replacement of the mechanistic self-image derived from classical mechanics by one concordant with quantum mechanics may provide the foundation of a moral order better suited to today`s times, a self-image that endows human life with meaning, responsibility, and a deeper linkage to nature as a whole.

Man Ray's 'Noire et Blanche': Avant-garde, fashion, and Other(s)

Description: This paper discusses research on Man Ray's 'Noire et blanche' photographic series that features a female model and an African mask. This paper advances beyond the too often superficially noted formal similarities and contrasts between the representations of the woman and the mask to identify cultural connections between the representations of the woman and the mask to identify cultural connections between them involving sexual and racial "Otherness".
