How do you research and bring work together?
You may use the technique of consilience without knowing it.
Read this definition and then let me know how you use consilience in your work.
Highlights:
In science and history, consilience (also convergence of evidence or concordance of evidence) is the principle that evidence from independent, unrelated sources can "converge" on strong conclusions. That is, when multiple sources of evidence are in agreement, the conclusion can be very strong even when none of the individual sources of evidence is significantly so on its own. Most established scientific knowledge is supported by a convergence of evidence: if not, the evidence is comparatively weak, and there will not likely be a strong scientific consensus.
The principle is based on the unity of knowledge; measuring the same result by several different methods should lead to the same answer. For example, it should not matter whether one measures distances within the Giza pyramid complex by laser rangefinding, by satellite imaging, or with a meter stick – in all three cases, the answer should be approximately the same. For the same reason, different dating methods in geochronology should concur, a result in chemistry should not contradict a result in geology, etc.
The word consilience was originally coined as the phrase "consilience of inductions" by William Whewell (consilience refers to a "jumping together" of knowledge).[1][2] The word comes from Latin com- "together" and -siliens "jumping" (as in resilience).[3]

If someone expressed a feeling when confronting a piece of literature, would that be considered an interpretation?
Relevant answer
Answer
I think it is generally accepted now that there is no such thing as 'pure' reason. Cognitive processes are never separate from feelings. In my opinion, any account of this issue that sees 'interpretation' as a higher stage of analysis is a product of self deception. Just as Einstein spoke of 'space/time' as a single phenomenon, so, difficult as it is to grasp intuitively in our cognitively -biased era, we need to find a way of talking about 'reason/feeling', or whole person responses to reading. We have not yet fully completed the transition from the Myth of Pure Reason to approaches which reflect the most recent findings of brain science, but that is not to advocate a reduction in the opposite direction.
Reason and Feelings are two functionally different aspects of a single process.
So I would agree with some of the responses to this question, but demur when contributors go on to privilege the cognitive. Although I would not take Heidegger's approach, I would conceptualise the issue holistically as he does.

The issues right now are related to the digital transformation. How do leaders lead and manage their workforce in the increasingly disconnected workplace brought about by the pandemic. Issues of employee engagement and employee retention are the top concers of organizations now. Also, due to globalization and the emergence of networked-based organization systems, the workplace is getting more and more diversified. How can the leader manage this highly diversified workforce. Added to this is the rise of what we call "Gig Economy" where workers are hired on a part-time basis. How would this affect maintenance of organizational culture and the values of the organization?

Hello, imagine a poem by a dead poet. Is it possible to determine what was going on in the mind of the poet? I need a way to conduct a research, therefore it should be scientific and based on a theory.
Relevant answer
Answer
I think the lessons from Alex Rosenberg regarding narrative history and explanations of the actions of historical figures in terms of their beliefs, desires, and intentions also apply in the case of getting into the minds of poets. Second-guessing what was in their minds is a fraught undertaking. Actual diaries might be a way of getting closer to a poet's beliefs, desires, and intentions, but even there the assumption that the poet is telling the truth may be unwarranted.

2. if I have 200 respondent for a questionnaire of 25 items included in 4 domains ,on scale score from 0 to 5, so the lowest response will be 0 and the highest will be 125.which scientific way should I follow to make categorizations and why for example into three level (low, moderate or high)or just (weak or strong) or (very low ,low ,moderate, high, very high).
take resilience questionnaire for example highest will be 125
so can we say any score from 0 to 42 he has low level of resilience, from 43 to 84he has medium level of resilience, from 84 to 125 he has low level of resilience
3. that absolutely will be useless if there is categorization in the original questionnaire or not?
Relevant answer
Answer
Again, from a statistical perspective, it is best not to categorize/form groups and to rather use the variable/score as is, taking advantage of its (quasi-) continuous (metrical) scale level. Otherwise, you lose information. There are plenty of statistical procedures available for continuous variables and those are typically more powerful than procedures for categorical/ordinal variables.
Most categorization methods are also rather ad hoc/arbitrary (e.g., median or quartile split). A model-based approach that is less arbitrary is latent profile analysis (LPA), which allows you to identify latent groups based on continuous variables. Often, these groups come out as low, medium, high. However, LPA requires multiple continuous indicator variables.

I am a bit warry about asking this question regarding my ignorance and I am also not to sure if this question might bring out some emotional response.
Assume I want to have an estimate on the average R-squared and variability from literature for specific models y~x. I found 31 literature sources.
The questions are twofold :
1.) Can I shift the simulate of an ABC-rejection algorithm acting like it come from indeed from my target (see the first 4 figures)?
The parameter in this case is the draw from the prior deviating from the target and then shift it so it fits.
2.) I applied 4 methods in this case ABC-rejection (flat prior not really preferred), Bayesian bootstrap, Classical bootstrap and a one sided T-test (lower 4 figures). From all methods I extracted the 2.5-97.5% intervals. Given the information below, is it reasonable to go for Bayesian bootstrap in this case?
As sometimes suggested on RG and hidden deeply in some articles the intervals of the different intervals converse and are more-or-less-ish similar. However, I do have another smaller dataset which is also skewed. So I would personally prefer the Bayesian bootstrap as it smooths out and the extreme exactness in this case does not matter to much to me. Based on these results my coarse guestimate of the average variability would range from ~20-30% (To me it seems pot`a`to - pot`aa`to for either method disregarding the philosophical meaning). I also would like to use the individual estimates returned each bootstrap and technically it is not normal distributed (Beta-ish), although this does not seem to matter much in this pragmatic case.
Thank you in advance.

This is an important topic because many academics relish going to desirable places for conferences. My husband and I used to travel to scientific conferences but so much red tape is involved he and I are glad to attend mostly on video conferencing technologies (yes, like Zoom and others whose names I don't know. No intent to favor one or the other technology company)
It is good to remember that social bragging rights do not equal additions to knowledge (i.e., what exotic place one has traveled lately.). Yet, local economies are helped by all kinds of conferences and the money that they bring.
There are costs and benefits either way, so please share your ideas about continuing in-person conferences when there is little we cannot do via remote presentation, informal conferring and virtual "hallway" chatter.

How do we Justify the " who, when, and where" conditional in the theoretical model?
Relevant answer
Answer
There are several considerations in the process of addressing this question (Finding the Right Theory). For example, the area of knowledge we are dealing with is very important. In Physics, a researcher has a hunch and immediately tries to define a mathematical model to back it up, then later experiments will follow to link abstractions to reality. The original theory was a hunch or a hypothesis justified by limited prior knowledge and logic.
In applied areas such as business and IT management, the research question needs to be important in practice. Whichever accepted research models have been validated provide a strong guideline. If validated measures for the relevant constructs already exist, so much the easier. On the other hand, often new technologies or new ways for business innovation gets ahead of existing theories; new theories must be proposed, new measures must be developed.
I hope that helps.

I used EdgeR to get the list of DEGs (differentially expressed genes) from my liver RNA-seq experiment. I have done the gene overrepresentation and GSEA based pathway analysis. I am currently taking one gene at a time and googling if someone has shown its role for something similar to my research topic. My question is, how do I filter important genes from unimportant ones (like olfactory receptors, immunology related, and predicted genes)? How do you guys do it? Please give valuable suggestions.
Relevant answer
Answer
Hi Ankur B. Sharma , I do not think there is correct answer to your question, since terms like "important" or "unimportant" require a biological context. From your description, it sounds like you have identified some "important" pathways (or, gene-sets), or those that are disproportionately represented in your list of differentially-expressed genes. While "olfactory receptors" may not directly pertain to your analysis, the genes responsible for driving this enrichment may be relevant to a parallel pathway in another tissue-type. Thus, depending on the pathway database, you can identify the genes responsible for driving this enrichment. To do this, Enrichr is convenient (both the web-based and R platforms), exporting the pathway as a table (.txt).
Another approach is to search for "nodal" regulators of gene expression. Common tools include transcription factor binding site (TFBS) analysis, motif analysis, and even weighted gene coexpression network analysis (WGCNA). To accomplish this, you can use TRANSFAC, JASPAR, ENCODE, ChEA, etc...

Is there such thing as false interpretation in Literature?
Relevant answer
Answer
An interpretation is considered admissible if it's not in contradiction with the text, but since the text is open and polysemous, the return to the text is often insufficient to determine the validity of the interpretations, which are diverses and can be contradictory. Literary interpretation is both subjective and in part conditioned by interpretative communities (Fish). We cannot use a criterion of truth (true / false) but an intersubjective validation process (admissible / contestable), in other words to be admissible an interpretation must be recognized as such by other readers. We must then turn to the explanation by the readers of the sources of their interpretations. In my educational research, I have shown that teachers refer more to literary culture and students to the values ​​shared in their communities as well as to their personal experiences of the world.

At the end of the 19th century, the ideas of psychophysiology and its rhetorical devices gave rise to a new way of referring to consciousness and the human being. Literature would change along with this scientific revolution. To such an extent that we speak of nervous and sensory literature, psychophysiological literature. Great novels such as The Magic Mountain by Thomas Mann, Ulysses by James Joyce, In Search of Lost Time by Marcel Proust, and Azar by Joseph Conrad have as one of their central issues the conditioning of these new ways of saying consciousness.
In recent decades, scientific research around consciousness continues to change paradigms, but the reception by the literature of the rhetorical devices of behavioral neurology, cognitive sciences, and others has been slow to come.
It is possible to consider that new literature is approaching based on this new conception. Is neural or predictive consciousness literature approaching? Is there an example? Or simply, Is it impossible for the literature of this step?

I'm currently developing a project looking at instances of cultural and symbolic violence towards nature, whether this creates/contributes to stigma, and how it compares to, or causes, physical violence (i.e farming of livestock, crushing insects due to fear). Particularly interested in snakes and spiders as used to symbolise an evil, violent, or manipulative trait in a human, or other sentient antagonistic force in a piece of fiction.
Seeking to answer questions such as:
Is our use of certain creatures to represent these things in any way unethical?
What does symbolic violence towards 'strange' creatures indicate about our tendencies to do this with differential prejudice towards humans? And is challenging symbolic violence towards living creatures necessary on all levels to combat it between human groups?
So, does anyone have recommendations for reading on this? And, are there any available studies analysing the impact of nature representation on societal approach to specific animals?
Thanks,
Connor

Interesting that in the film based on Hermann Hesse's novel, Siddhartha, it is a cobra which kills Siddhartha's beloved wife, though snakes were considered holy and wise in some versions of theology. Also interesting is that the Rod of Asclepius- Ράβδος του Ασκληπιού - emblem of healing for medicine is a snake (not to be confused with the caduceus which also has a positive connotation as the staff of Hermes). The myth of Tiresias has him changing genders when he strikes and wounds snakes as they are mating, and then switches back with the when he witnesses them again seven years later-- all this leading to him being blinded by Hera when he reports on which gender more enjoys sexual pleasure. Snakes were autochthonous- "sprung from the earth" - much as Athena sprang from Zeus's thigh. They had wisdom. Obviously also snakes and dragons as well as rats are somewhat revered or at least respected in Chinese astrology, since all 3 creatures have zodiacal years. The moral of all this may be that it is an ill wind that blows no good and that, as with humans, there are powerfully positive and negative individuals in all species. Cross-cultural influences shared by ancient Hindu, Greek and Egyptian mythology (Hermes Trismegistus) may have many antecedents in earlier Mesopotamian mythology as well- the caduceus may have originated with the Sumerian god Ningishzida, god of the underworld and the autochthonous vegetation which sprang.therefrom. By the way, lest anyone be under the delusion that I knew all this before I started writing, I owe huge thanks to Wikipedia for all but Hesse's novel and the myth of Tiresias. I confused the caduceus with the rod of Ascepius like many others in the USA, including health organizations who use the caduceus with its two snakes rather than the rod with its single snake and is entwined around a more primitive staff.

I am a first-year PhD student who would like to hear about other researchers' experience related to interdisciplinarity within the humanities, especially those combining both text and visual elements:
  • Which are some suitable methods that can be applied?
  • Should both areas of studies be represented in a balanced way?
  • Any tip that you would have loved to hear before developing your own interdisciplinary project
Relevant answer
Answer
This largely depends on the more specific areas that you are researching of course. There are correlations between literary theory and art/aesthetic theory, and both can and are often utilized for art and literature, so you can draw correlations between the two. In addition, I tend to use theory that already exists in the interdisciplinary realm, like Derrida’s hauntology, or Kristeva’s abjection(two of my favorite). The balance between the two fields Is really up to you and how you approach your research as long as one isn’t an afterthought, in which case you need to question whether it belongs in the project. I hope that helps!

In order to help undergraduate students form interest in reading literary texts and acquire a larger understanding of their imports, we called upon creative activities (filmed performances, staged reading, crafting of costumes and elements from stories read, informal reading clubs etc.). The students responded well to those prompts and managed to finish reading the assigned readings. However, it has been noticed that these activities had limited impacts on the students’ critical thinking and analytical skills which would be more relevant for their academic pursuits.

A challenge is motivating. We don't like risks, but we like challenges. Risk is something that has the capability to hurt, harm or injure, whereas a challenge is something that motivates, interests, or engages oneself. Nowadays, people more and more use these words interchangeably, especially in business, because risk is not a popular word, so they just switch it to challenge. Is risk just an unfamiliar challenge, or there is a lot more difference between these two terms?

Risk provides opportunities and challenges in finance. Risk is rewarded when taken correctly and penalized if not. Taking more risk is associated with a higher expected return in finance.

The introduction of what was once called Third World literature into the debate has created surely immense doubt about the nature of literature and what is taught. I came across a Pelican Original, dated 1940 but republished in 1969, with the usual troupe of dead white men perpetuating a real or imagined tradition. South American and West African literature broke that mold. Now, with internet and public performance literature like art can be anything. Mostly still, literature possessing form is still the literature taught.

Have you done such analysis?
What theory did you find most helpful?
How do you define social class when it comes to writing about it in the arts?
Thanks for any and all ideas and comments.
Relevant answer
Answer
In an academic sense, social class is a reality directly linked to academic attainment, heritage, financial status and social positions. Hence an individual's knowledge of the literary and relevant theories and concepts naturally will be applied in making an analysis. However, these variables I mentioned, in many ways contribute to an individual's social construction of reality, inclination and attributions. Beyond and within academic stipulations of analysis of texts, individuals view texts based on the aforementioned persuasions and worldviews.

I am inviting people in at the start of an invited proposal to a multinational educational publisher. I was invited to propose a companion text on LITERATURE AND CLASS because of a review I did of another text. This convinced the publisher that I could create a research text for them.
STEP ONE: do reviews of other people's texts. If you do a review, say you are available to do more.
I invite you to watch this journey from start to conclusion of a project to publish a reference text with a major publisher. This should be a good discussion that takes us beyond the "what if I had a publisher" stage with no specifics involved.

thank you for your comment, I see that generally a work of art is an indirect issue but overuse of figures of speech in Iranian literary works for instance, has took place during eras with maximum of tyranny. It can propose that poets have self-censored themselves to eschew any pursuit, by displacement some direct characters in the cover of metaphoric items, or overusing the figures of speech to postpone or wrapping the direct intended idea.
Can self-censorship cause "overusing" ornamental issues, figures of speech in literary works and decorative quality in visual artworks?

One of the best known formulas for character development of heroes is Joseph Campbell's monomyth, The Hero with a Thousand Faces.
Campbell identifies this recurring story outline in ancient myths, and many of today's books and movies use a similar structure of a young reluctant hero on a journey, fellow travelers, and an older mentor who is eventually "taken away" so that the young hero must defeat evil alone.
Is there any similar formula that has been used time and again for villains, or anti-heroes?
Some villains are written to be evil just for the same of being evil, which makes them one-dimensional. I am interested in more nuances villains who DO have some character development, and whether there are formulas used in constructing their characters.
I am thinking beyond archetypes and looking for formulas by which villains undergo character development, change, or growth.
Relevant answer
Answer
Perhaps not entirely relevant, but I think that taking a look at recent animated movies and live action Disney remakes might add an interesting perspective to your work. Whereas in previous animated Disney movies the villain was usually a one dimensional flat character (Maleficent, Lady Tremaine, the Red Queen, Shere Khan...), in more recent adaptations the villain has a more profound psychology, they are no longer evil for the sake of being evil, but as a consequence of some previous trauma or hardship. Furthermore, movies are being made about villains-turned-heroes, such as "Despicable Me" and "Megamind". Villains are recently being humanised - there is no such thing as pure evil.

We have been looking at post-Kleinian work by Winnicott and Bion, particularly concepts such as holding, container-contained. Now the most interesting part of this reading, is that the psychoanalytic writing is about clinical work, and the concepts are ways to think about the work in the psychoanalytic encounter. But Bion suggests that the theory is only useful for about 3 sessions, while the analyst is developing inter-intra-relations (my riff) with the patient. After this time the concepts emerge from the encounter. So what does this mean for adopting a concept? How can a psycho-social methodology work alongside this philosophi
