Sociology


Sociology is the scientific study of society. It is a social science which uses various methods of empirical investigation and critical analysis to develop a body of knowledge about human social activity. For many sociologists the goal is to conduct research which may be applied directly to social policy and welfare, while others focus primarily on refining the theoretical understanding of social processes. Subject matter ranges from the micro level of individual agency and interaction to the macro level of systems and the social structure.

Emoțiile și inteligența emoțională în organizații

By: Nicolae Sfetcu

O argumentare a importanței dualiste a emoțiilor în societate, individual și la nivel de comunitate. Tendința actuală de conștientizare și control al emoțiilor prin inteligența emoțională are un efect benefic în afaceri și pentru succesul activităților sociale dar, dacă nu suntem atenți, poate duce la o alienare ireversibilă la nivel individual și social. Lucrarea se compune din trei părți principale: Emoții (Modele ale emoțiilor, Procesarea emoțiilor, Fericirea, Filosof...

1. Emoții Emoția este o stare mentală indusă de unul sau mai mulți stimuli interni sau externi, (Panksepp 2004) (A. R. Damasio 1998) (Ekman și Davidson 1994) care determină modificări corporale chimice, răspunsuri comportamentale și o anumită stare. (Cabanac 2002) (D. L. Schacter, Gilbert, și Wegner 2011) Emoția este într-o interdependență permanentă cu starea de spirit, temperamentul, personalitatea, dispoziția și motivația persoanei respective.

Who is Framing the Anthropos? : From Cosmic Cogs to Cosmic Partners

By: Pierre Marcel Louys

My hope therefore in undertaking this investigation into our social evolution and the framing of the anthropos, was to discern new ways out of the ‘blizzard’ in order to guard humanity from its chronic blind faith in either in an anthropomorphic deity or a super-human ruler.

The future of the anthropos is tightly linked with the global human society. Fundamental change in society can emerge only through freely undertaken radical change in the individual. Individuals can and will maintain their humanity and freedom through ‘real’ education. Only the indubitable features found within the reflecting subject can serve as an absolute foundation and as a basis for understanding the nature of the world. From this solitary standpoint (courage entail...

Taking Action for a Better Tomorrow

By: Jeremy P. Boggess

In our world today there are monumental and exponential changes occurring. These changes are happening not just in the local, international, or global arenas, but even within ourselves. Let us explore the necessary actions and responsibilities that will help guide us into our future. It is important to look beyond isolationism or globalization. Politics, the different governments and cultures in the world, and our environment are significant contributing factors, but we...

Chapter One: Changes Occurring in the Fractionalized World of Today Threshold I feel that something is happening worldwide. I believe that we now stand at the “threshold” of current society and maybe even the future of our species. Is this a new dawn, or the end? Some changes are occurring that are beyond the ability and daring of our modern world to even report. No matter where our politics, beliefs, or tendencies lean, we must admit that there are strange movemen...

The Cornerstone

By: Whick Withy

I've always had a lot of questions. Like, why does everyone say, "We're just human"? Like it is some sort of verbal stain remover. Or, "Things change"? As if it were an absolution and a reprieve rather than a self-defeating proposal. The Golden Rule, as far as I can see, is, "Don't get caught" - to the bitter end. Or, "That's just life"? Like it is some sort of all purpose cleaner. Of course, the central question was always why is mankind so very screwed up? Then it hit me....

This stunning difference between human and animal completely befuddled our primitive ancestors and still takes modern humans by surprise, disabling our ability to don the mantle of our sentience. It leaves us baffled and deceived. A sentient endeavor is required that will transform all of mankind like a butterfly leaving its cocoon.

Evolution and Ethics of Eugenics

By: Nicolae Sfetcu

As eugenics is defined, it is very difficult to make a clear distinction between science (medicine, genetic engineering) and eugenics as a included field. And to set a line over which genetic engineering should not go further, according to moral, legal and religious norms. If we accept the help of genetics in finding ways to fight cancer, diabetes, or HIV, we also accept positive eugenics as they are defined now. And if we accept genetic screening, and interventions on t...

In this article, I try to argue that, as eugenics is defined, it is very difficult to make a clear distinction between science (medicine, genetic engineering) and eugenics as a included field. And to set a line over which genetic engineering should not go further, according to moral, legal and religious norms. If we accept the help of genetics in finding ways to fight cancer, diabetes, or HIV, we also accept positive eugenics as they are defined now. And if we accept gen...

Epistemology of Intelligence Agencies

By: Nicolae Sfetcu

About the analogy between the epistemological and methodological aspects of the activity of intelligence agencies and some scientific disciplines, advocating for a more scientific approach to the process of collecting and analyzing information within the intelligence cycle. I assert that the theoretical, ontological and epistemological aspects of the activity of many intelligence agencies are underestimated, leading to incomplete understanding of current phenomena and co...

Information is power. This perception has intensified during the Second World War, when several intelligence agencies has been formalized and significantly increased. In all countries, new agencies and departments have been set up to deal with threats. Governments are currently spending huge amounts for the intelligence agencies that are considered a major component of national security systems. The intelligence agencies are primarily responsible for identifying and prev...

The Secret Life of Sweat

By: Ronald H Blumer

There is a secret life to sweat. It can secretly tell others when we are afraid or when we’re ready to have sex. It tells us who we should mate with in order to have healthy babies. Our two million sweat glands keep us alive, and makes us better than other animals Why does sweat smell bad? Well actually, sweat doesn’t smell at all. We’ll explain. And where do we sweat the most, on our hands and feet? Why? And why are armpits so stinky? A clue; it has to do with sex. ...

In some cultures in Eastern Europe, a woman’s sweat was thought to have magical properties. Hungarian girls were said to be able to put a spell on men by rubbing dough on their sweaty bodies, baking it into a cake, and then giving it to some unsuspecting victim as a philtre, or love potion. There was a long tradition in Europe for a woman to place a slice of apple in her armpit at the beginning of an evening of dancing. At the end of the evening, she would give the swea...

The Native Races of South Africa : Along with a Commentary by VED ...

By: George W Stow; VED from Victoria Institutions, Compiler

This file contains the full book ‘THE NATIVE RACES OF SOUTH AFRICA’. Along with that there is a commentary also. The commentary may have its own significance. The commentary does stand on this platform of being a commentary to the book. However, the commentary does not actually confine itself within this boundary. Instead, there is a wider attempt to understand non-English social systems. Attempts can be seen made to mention things that are there in these soc...

4. What has been missed This book, THE NATIVE RACES OF SOUTH AFRICA written by GEORGE W. STOW, F.G.S., F.R.G.S. does suffer from this defect. That is, the writer of this book has written this book containing a huge content of details. However, everything does sort of skim over the surface. The hidden codes and their machine-work have been totally missed. Or rather, there is not even a thought that such hidden things, non-tangible to a native-English mind, would be the...

Eugenics

By: Nicolae Sfetcu

The main concern of the first eugenists, such as Karl Pearson and Walter Weldon of University College London , were the perceived intelligence factors considered to be correlated with the social class. In his speech "Darwinism, Medical Progress and Eugenics", Karl Pearson equates eugenics with a field of medicine. Some areas of medicine that are not commonly recognized as eugenic affect the human genes background. These include sterilization and surgical techniques that ...

The term eugenics as a practice and field of study was invented by Francis Galton in 1883, in his book Inquiries into Human Faculty and Its Development (F. Galton 1983) based on the recent work of his cousin, Charles Darwin, the Mendelian genetics and August Weismann's theory of germ plasma, that says that hereditary information is transmitted only by germ cells from the gonads (ovaries and testicles), not somatic cells. (Blom 2008) Galton defined eugenics as "the study ...

March of the Evil Empires : English versus the Feudal Languages

By: VED from Victoria Institutions

This is a book containing a revolutionary idea about understanding society, human behaviour, history, anthropological features and many other aspects of human beings. The basic understanding that is being put forward is that languages, which are the software for human communication, are powerful media, which not only can help in communication, but also does contain extremely powerful designs and programs, which literally design all societies. Languages are actually power...

A QUOTE from this book about what is in the offing for the USA as feudal languages enter inside the social system: QUOTE: Yet the continuous and incessant bombardment of alien cultural ideology embedded in feudal languages, could create experiences, which are not English and will lead USA to social tensions. Though the extreme emotional disturbances, it causes would be understood as racial feelings and colour discrimination, the real reasons could be the strange, and...

An Impressionistic History of the South Asian Subcontinent : Feuda...

By: VED from Victoria Institutions

This is a writing that goes into the very depth of feudal language social systems. The writing commenced as a regular broadcast through Whatsapp and still continues. The language of the original writing was a vernacular language of the southern parts of the South Asian Subcontinent. As of now, the broadcast has gone beyond 280 chapters. In this book only the first 100 and odd posts are given. This is so because the translation of only that many chapters has been comp...

Chapter Five Feudal languages and planar languages This writer, after a lot of observations and experimentations, has defined languages as of two different categories. Languages like English were categorised as planar languages. Languages which have word-codes of feudal lowliness versus heights were defined as feudal languages. In connection with this, a draft form of the book MARCH of the EVIL EMPIRES: English versus the feudal languages was first written in the yea...

By: Rev. SAMUEL MATEER; VED from Victoria Institutions, Editor

Commentary The work Designing this old book into a digital book version had its own travails and hard work. I took the text from various online sources. The text needed a lot of corrections, when it was converted into a MS Word file. Moreover, there were lots of pages missing. I think I have been able to get most of the pages intact by cross-referencing the sources, all of which had similar problems, but not in the same locations. I think I c...

To the present day Pulayars and others are thrust into cages not much better. One which I measured was fifteen feet long by eight feet wide, and five and three-quarters in height, in which twenty-five persons have at times been incarcerated, supplied with stocks all round, and no separation of the sexes. Another was eighteen by eight feet, in which thirty persons have been confined at once; and another was a “black hole” about eight feet square and five and a quarter hig...

Castes and Tribes of Southern India

By: EDGAR THURSTON, C.I.E.; VED from VICTORIA INSTITUTIONS, Editor

The book is great. It was a pioneering attempt at understanding ethnographic differences inside the South Asian subcontinent. However, the most powerful factor that actually influences ethnographic differences in closely connected populations has not been mentioned or detected. This most powerful factor is the verbal codes in the native feudal languages, and the exact position of a caste or tribe or individual inside these languages

PREFACE In 1894, equipped with a set of anthropometric Instruments obtained on loan from the Asiatic Society of Bengal, I commenced an investigation of the tribes of the Nilgiri hills, the Todas, Kotas, and Badagas, bringing down on myself the unofficial criticism that "anthropological research at high altitudes is eminently indicated when the thermometer registers 1000 in Madras." From this modest beginning have resulted :-( 1) investigation of various classes which ...
