Hello All!
I am currently writing my dissertation on the maladaptive repercussions of childhood emotional maltreatment (psychological maltreatment) on adult attachment systems and romantic relationships. In general most measurement tools are inclusive of all forms of maltreatment. At this point I'm considering extracting the specific items from established questionnaires (eg. FEQ, CATS, CTQ). Other than ECR (ECR-R), are there any other valid scales that predominately focus on adult CEM and attachment? If so, what are they and do they require permission? Thank you in advance for your help!

Hey, I am looking at empathic accuracy in romantic couples across three phases of an interaction
I have 2 hypotheses:
1) if there’s a difference between phase 2 compared to no phase 1
2) if there’s a difference in phase 3 vs phase 2
when I ran t-tests doing this I got a significant difference for my second hypothesis, HOWEVER, when I do an ANOVA I don’t see any significant differences between these 3 phases.
Should I report the ANOVA even if I’m not looking for a difference in phase 3 vs phase 1?
I am also looking at neuroticism and genders moderation on empathic accuracy scores in phase 2. should I do a simple moderation analysis or is there a statistical test which can be done in a more smart manner?
Relevant answer
Answer
ANOVA will give you a result for the variation among the three groups and you need to complete the analysis by using tukey or duncan.... You can use t test two times and you complete the analysis. T test is used for samples less than 30.

This question does not relate to philosophical romanticism applied to science that had some currency in the 1800s. Roughly it seems that scientific romanticism differed from enlightenment by inserting humanity into nature and seeking union via human consciousness and problem solving.
The romantic aspect of physics I allude to shares some features of the medieval tale relating to chivalry, such as Don Quixote and qualities of adventure into unknown parts remote from settled life, such as the adventures of Richard Burton, who translated the Arabian Nights.
The mystery is: how has nature contrived these things we observe?
The remoteness is that the answers may require extrapolation in size, microscopic or cosmological, or in length of time, short or long, or in eons past or yet to arrive, remote from human experience, or principles that defy and challenge human perception, such as universal gravitation, or the nature of time, curvature of space, or quantum particles.
The adventure involves all the steps to solve the problem.
It seems to me that theoretical physics is a romantic quest. If the physicist arrives at a partial or provisional understanding of some mystery, then that is a great romance.
Your view?
Relevant answer
Answer
Yes, I do agree to your observation. When physics leaves the experimental method, it is becoming romantic, either in formulating mathematical beauty or aesthetic texts. Such is the poetic consciousness of our physical universe, which is still a concealed mystery of dead and living matter.

I observed that most people enjoy courtship because love is active during this period. But in marriage, there seems to be conflicts because here love is passive. I discovered that most marriages collapse because men are pretenders in courtship period. Most of them are no more who they used to be during courtship- a romantic period. They grow traditional and more authoritative whereas women want to be romantic forever. Men should not tolerate in courtship what they cannot tolerate in marriage- a classical period. My understanding of Romantic Period and Classical Period is that of Courtship Period and Marital Period.

Classicism is a philosophy of conservatism, imitation of the famous experts and mentorship whereas Romanticism is a philosophy of freedom, intuition, quest for adventure and realization of individual dreams, aspirations or imagination. Both manifested historically in Literature, Arts and Music. But nowadays, the interact of these two concepts leads to a conflict as it occurred in France during premiere of Victor Hugo's Hernani in Paris in 1830. I observed through about a decade research on Romanticism that Classicism and Romanticism are two variable factors that determine a social change. This is as a result of conflict that occurs between the classics and the romantics in all spheres of life. Collaborative research will be welcomed ; articles on this is yet to be published. Any journal on Romanticism, Literature, Comparative Literature, French Literature, German Literature , Psychoanalysis Guardian & Counseling and Adolescence?

Answer
I feel uneasy about the way in which the question is formulated. Why transfer in such a direct manner the absolutely not univocally defined concepts of cultural history to the field of social evolution and maybe politics? Doesn't such transfer introduce more ambiguities in all spheres concerned? Moreover, it seems to me that the opposition, classic in itself, between these two cultural/artistic currents or modes of expression is here ideologically distorted, unbalanced, a positive, freedom loving adventurous Romanticism contrasting with a conservative (oppressive?) Classicism, a dull and static imitation of masters. Historically, neither one was monolithic, there were reactionary Romantics and very liberal Classicists (take Voltaire for one example).
In Archaists and Innovators (1929), the Russian formalist critic Yuri Tynyanov demonstrated how in XIX century Russia some poets who were to become revolutionaries turned to traditional models from the past whereas their much more conservative opponents proved to pioneer new forms.
If so, wouldn't it be more precise to speak simply about an eternal social and political conflict between conservatists and liberals, a conflict that can be and frequently was reflected in literature & arts, and not vice versa?

People often think that feminism in literature is limited to both male and female writers who defend women in the society. However, they fail to realize that the first generation of romantic writers were French female romantics such as Germaine de Stael and George Sand, a female who used a male pseudonym to write in 19th century. Les Miserables of Victor Hugo and Notre Dame de Paris were two works that portray female characters positively. Even Stendhal's Madame Bovary, a realist-romantic novel is another example. So, one can say affirmatively that the romantics were the first feminists. Let modern feminists critics and writers take note otherwise there would be a vacuum in knowledge being dispatched.
Relevant answer
Answer
In my eyes you make four major mistakes: 1. The romantics were not at all the "first" feminists. There have been thinkers long before romanticism, who pleaded for equal rights of women and men; the idea of equal rights of both sexes is said to be expressed by Averroes (Ibn Rushd) for the first time in Europe. In China, the most prominent political claim of emancipation was the takeover of power by Wu Zetian. When you are talking about modernity only, you should consider Olympe de Gouges as a crucial figure of feminist history. 2. You are confusing novels, that deal with female protagonists, like Flauberts masterpiece Madame Bovary with a feminist struggle. Flaubert clearly was a sexist. Hugos Notre Dame doesn't deal with feminism at all. 3. You are confusing being a woman and a writer with being a feminist: There are a lot of anti-feminists among female writers. 4. Feminist critics do know all this. There's no vacuum in knowledge.

When I was a teenager , I used to witness a man and his wife fighting and tearing each other's clothes. They would beat each other mercilessly outside and rubbing each other's body with muddy water of the gutter. later , that very day, they would go to bathroom together which was outside, bathe and would sit outside on a mat drinking beer. they must of course sleep together that night. They used to do this many times without anybody settling their dispute and without considering divorce for once. It is now clear to my after my study of Romanticism and courtship relationship that they were just both romantically compatible partners.

I am disturbed by the simplicity with which a fellow academic claims what women "love" on a website that is devoted to research. Serious studies in psychology and psychoanalysis have pointed out for many decades that LOVE is a complex attachment which is closely entangled with fear (fear of losing your income, your home, your children, public respect, etc). I am sure that there ares some people who thrive in a sadomasochistic relationship, but there must be as many sadomasochistic men as there are sadomasochistic women. But this would not lead anyone to conclude that men love to be in an abusive relationship.

The same adjective " romantic" is used for the two nouns. So majority of people associate being romantic with romance , that is love affection and courtship experience. However, to literary critics , romantic love is impossible love that seeks freedom in a rigid society. Romance Literature is 17th century English Elizabethan period whereas Romanticism Literature is 19th century literary of rebellion in Europe.
Relevant answer
Answer
Romance Literature predates Romanticism- the latter is a late-eighteenth and early-nineteenth century aesthetic and political break from the values of the Enlightenment- the primacy of reason, science and empiricism. Romanticism prioritizes emotion and feeling ('sentiment'), advocates an introspective return to Nature (not as an external fact but a state of being) and takes issue with the social and psychic ramifications of the Industrial Revolution- the quantification and commodification of culture, the rise of utilitarianism and a disassociation between thought and feeling. Romance is a medieval mode of writing focused on adventurous conquests of chivalrous heroes, damsels and distress and entrapments of the supernatural (think about King Arthur and the Round Table, as a representative example).

Dear all,
I'm actually working in a study in which I propose an alternative structure underlying romantic attachment in couples facing breast cancer. I used a short version of the well known Experiences in Close Experiences measure developed by Brennan and Shaver.The analyses that I conducted (multiple CFA, EFA, etc) suggested a different structure underlying this self report. Specifically, instead confirming the well know structure which presents anxiety and avoidance as the underlying factors, it suggests a third structure organisation, in which I am still working on. I early published a study in which I mention this finding (Ávila et al., 2017). I was wondering if anyone here is familiar with self report measures of attachment like this and have found alternative findings with regard to the organisation of this construct.

Given a text, is it possible to clone (i.e. write something similar) a given text, while mantaining constant the difficulty of the text itself?
I know that is possible to use LSTM to generate text, but that involves training the network with some training data (lets say Shakespeare poems) that will result in something similar to Shakespeare itself as output.
If we want to create a framework that given a specific text (something short like "Adam and Jane are going out for dinner and are having a dessert and a bottle of wine") give us back something similar to the input (that will not be "Two boys in their 30s, going out during a full moon evening for a romantic dinner......" - too complex) LSTM is not the best idea since we have to train again the network every time we want to change the "context" we are working with. This is not scalable.
Do you have any ideas on how to create something that mimics input sentences and does not require hours of training?
I was thinking that maybe NER or POS could help, but I do have still some difficulties on seeing how so far.
Thanks.

Answer
It depends what you are translating, With poetry, you have to know the versification method of the language and find a way to capture it in a language which does not sound the same or have the same methods (say pitch versus not using pitch). You also have to be careful with idioms. In French, as I found out delightfully, saying je suis chaud is not the same as saying j'ai chaud. Scansion is another ball game. Linguistics gets scansion wrong. It is a way of putting syllables together to sound a certain way; that is, it is determined more by the ear than by actual syllabification -- that is why variants in feet and measures occur. It was also meant to be memorable, that is, repetition helps one to remember. Not only do you need to look at classical rhetoric, rather than modern rhetoric, for what you need to remember (gesture, tone, etc.) and try to find ways of conveying these -- I always thought that the greatest poets in English were the great musical lyricists of the 20th century. To me "Another Hundred People Just Got Off Of The Train" by Sondheim is more effective than "The Wasteland" in its articulation. Also about classical rhetoric, when you read a Restoration comedy silently, it is not funny. When you read it aloud or see it acted, it is hilarious. The words were put together to be said aloud and you miss the fun if you do not hear them as the battle of wits they are.
These are just some thoughts to consider. As a practicing verse writer (I do not like what the word poet, which in Greek meant "maker", has become because maker means a person who is technically proficient), I did a preliminary study for a work on versification based not on linguistics or theory but on the ear ... as it would have been done in say Classical Greece and Rome and Ancient Israel. Having studied all three language as much as I could since a good classical education was no longer available in schools, and having read people like the Parry's and Albert Lord, as well as learned the chanting system in Hebrew, I found that looking at versification as a patterning of sound to organize effective statement to remember opened up a way to understand why certain writers are more effective than others.

Dear all,
I'm actually working on a validation study which examines a self-report measure of romantic attachment. I was quite surprised to see a huge increment of the correlations between the dimensions of the measure when I tested multiple Confirmatory Factory Analyses (CFA) in Amos. The first glance of the matrix of correlations in SPSS showed moderated values between the dimensions of the scale (values around .35). When I conducted CFA in AMOS some dimensions showed to be highly correlated with a substantial increment in the value of the correlation (from .35 to .87). This value questions the interdependent nature of these dimensions. I am aware that AMOS estimation produces a more robust examination of the data but I don't remember seeing such a huge change at the level of the correlation values. Is this common? And how can this be explained? Than you so much for your attention!
Relevant answer
Answer
Just to expand a little on Heiko's answer.
Using latent variable statistics (like Amos), one of the points is to get rid of 'measurement error'. 'Measurement error' in this context means all the influences on a factor that are unique for each indicator (for instance items on a questionnaire), in contrast with influences on a factor which is (somewhat) common for the indicators. When calculating correlations between factors using latent variable models, the measurement part is not used in the calculation, only the common influences, which (if you have a good measurement instrument) is a better representation of the construct.
However, if you calculate correlations between sum scores, the measurement errors are not separated from the calculation. Therefore, they sort of blurr the picture, and the correlations typically are lower (attenuated). Again, if you are using a good measurement instrument (for instance a test), the correlations found using latent variable methods will be the better representation of the relation.

These stages are puzzles for researchers in literary movement of Romanticism and Psychoanalysis in any discipline.
Relevant answer
Answer
Every agent of change has romantic instinct which becomes a pool of feelings called romantic sentiment. This manifests into romantic behaviours. Due to its strangeness in the society, it attracts criticism. At this stage the romantic agent reflects to find reasons to this non-conformity. This leads to romantic philosophy. He then tries to spread through a means (politics, literature, music, arts, speeches or dressing). This constitute a romantic group when they share this romantic philosophy. This can change the system through revolution based of popularity and acceptance or deforms into extremism ; or terrorism when violence is used to disseminate this romantic philosophy.

The twentieth century witnessed two devastating wars which made the earlier style of living upside down. Men became wild, and sadness gripped human psyche. Against this backdrop, T.S. Eliot discovered 'hollow men'. However, the earth is not going to perish tomorrow, so we must live. It is an eternal paradox that despite misfortunes which come not as single flies but in battalions men rise up and strive to start life afresh - enjoying the morning sun, listening to the cuckoos and the nightingales, having sunbath on the sea beach, singing songs, being in love, writing poems, growing crops and breeding children.

Isn't The Shadow of Light : An Album of Poems an experiment in Neo-Romanticism? - ResearchGate. Available from: https://www.researchgate.net/post/Isnt_The_Shadow_of_Light_An_Album_of_Poems_an_experiment_in_Neo-Romanticism#view=5688e1d47eddd306688b458b [accessed Jan 3, 2016].
*************************************************************************************
Dear Ferenc,
The Shadow of Light: An Album of Poems is a novel experiment in Neo-Romanticism. Before initiating a discussion, this volume of poems needs to be read. It is available on Amazon and Barnes and Noble.
You have rightly grasped that the kind of poetry which glorifies life is seriously needed in the 21st century. The last century has been pitiably inhuman especially in the backdrop of two world wars that took away precious human lives and devastated the edifices of civilization built by men by the sweat of their brows since the beginning of  time. Poetry diverted itself to portray the desolateness of human life and the lifeless ruins that filled the earth. The values of love, friendship and tolerance were replaced by infidelity, divorce, promiscuousness and treachery. Prosperity meant accumulation of wealth at any cost.
Now that about  sixty years have passed since World War II and since Hiroshima and Nagasaki have sprung back to life and glory, men are beginning to feel  a new breeze blowing gently on the earth. With the fall of Soviet Union, the war of nerves is a thing of the past although monocentric world power is no less dangerous. Islamic terrorism is threatening the world order no doubt, but positive forces rallying against them will be able to diminish its rage. It is time that we looked back to nature, to innocent childhood,  to love and to the sunny mornings. This urge is being nurtured by some poets not with an eye to the Nobel Prize but for the sake of the celebration of life. They are few, but they are there.
2. Romanticism is an uncommon awareness of life - to be elated at the sight of a violet by a mossy stone, at the sight of daffodils beside the lake beneath the trees, at the voice of the nightingales and the cuckoos, at the spectacle of children flying kites, at the hush-hush kissing of  teenaged lovers. Socially, it also encourages equality and fraternity - a goal we have set for ourselves.  This is what you have nicely called 'life-affirming' trend of modern life. Romanticism is not an illusion, but more realistic than realism. It is like mining gold and diamond under the crust that is 'realistically' barren.
I wish you were in touch with me via email. That would give us opportunities to exchange ideas on new grounds.
All the best,

Dear Dr. Cleary,
Derrida has always shown that the deconstruction affect any object of culture, and not only metaphysical texts. In fact, the late production of the philosopher applies deconstructive experience no longer exclusively to paper-based systems of the philosophical tradition, but also to the historical and conceptual ones close to us (at least apparently), right where the deconstructive movement find us unprepared: "gift" ,  '"hospitality", "forgiveness", up to the system which concerns and involves us all: "democracy".
Unfortunately, I have no plan to publish  on Derrida and metaphysics more formally.

I have reformulated my earlier question because the answers I have received, although very interesting, referred mostly to violence in the performing arts, or to periods later than the one I am researching presently.
I am specifically looking for literature that discusses the subject of violence as a recurring theme in painting, from the Baroque to the Romantic period.
For example paintings such as Rembrandt's "Blinding of Samson", Titian’s The flaying of Marsyas,  Poussin's  Massacre of the Innocents, Caravaggio's Judith and Holofernes, Rubens' Rape of the Sabine Women, Goya's Third of May 1808 or Delacroix's Death of Sardanapalus, discussed from the point of view of the violence they represent.

I'm looking for articles on the subject of reflection through technology. Such as:
-Lovers’ box: Designing for reflection within romantic relationships (Thieme et. al.)
Maybe there is something interesting about APPs (runtastic) or other technology (SenseCam) for reflecting behaviour and/or attitudes.
Best regards,

Dear Dr. Gwiasda, The first paper investigates the effects of mobile messaging on the stimulation of learning activities of students, with a focus on the personality influences. The second paper exemplifies how student awareness and reactions on ubiquitous technologies were monitored on WIKID. The third paper summarizes how prototyping can reflect the enhancement of knowledge of technologies, creative and social competence, and long-term motivation of student teams. Kind regards, I. H.

There are two pillars of consciousness, that of intentionality, which includes thoughts, ideas, desires, motives and goals. The other side of consciousness is that of phenomena, which includes sensations, perceptions and feelings. These are troublesome for philosophy of mind philosophers because things such as color vision, the redness of red is not physical but is mental; the experience of a red rose is different from the physics of it all, this is related to the "Mary Problem" and what Goethe was pointing out, which is that Newtonian vision theory gives us everything about the theory of light but what we actually see and also perceive as beauty. Another example would be pain. One can pinch another and watch the physics and the biology of it all, but never will that observer 'feel' that other person's pain. The C Fibers can be watched and the damaged tissue, and the signals to the brain but one can't feel the pain of another. Also, ideas and other intentionalities aren't like tables and chairs that you can poke, prod and measure. They seem mental. like perceptions of color and feelings. Furthermore, reasons seem different than physical causes in that if you take a brain, blow it up to the size of a building and walk in what one would see is fat, protein and water, which translates into mostly dendrites, axons and synapses. No where do we "see" and idea. I don't want to debate my metaphysics or my epistemology though please.
However, what I want to know is if these two categories, that of intentionality and phenomena, as described above, fit into what Kant would call the noumenal realm.
Thank you ever so much for any help you may give.

Answer
Stephen,
I think the sorts of things you mention are not what Kant has in mind when he speaks of noumena. For one thing, for Kant, noumena cannot be sensed; they have no sensible properties. The things you mention have temporal extension, which for Kant, along with spatial extension, is the very form of sensibility.
We are able to think of things independently of their sensible properties, according to Kant. Something may appear in space and time, but it may also be considered, independently of this appearing and the sensible conditions of this appearing, as the thing which is the source of the appearance. We can only know it (cognize it) as it appears in space and time, says Kant, but we can think of it independently of these conditions, as the thing in itself.
Some writers have taken pains not to equate the thing in itself with the noumenon, despite the fact that neither can be sensed. Part of the reason for this, I think, has to do with the role the notion of a noumenon plays in Kant's theory of freedom. For more on the distinction between the thing in itself and the noumenon see ch. 3 of Henry Allison's "Kant's Transcendental Idealism."

e.g. rhythmic or melodic gestures, nuances or general elements of Beethoven's music which might be considered as combining to give an overall impression of the heroic, or being indicative of Beethoven's heroic style.
Relevant answer
Answer
You most certainly know Robert Hatten's book "Musical Meaning in Beethoven: MAakdness, Correlation, and Interpretation". He does not consider the Heroic in the context of Topical Theory itself, but as a category of Expressive Genres. Therefore many different topoi can be used to convey heroic expression, like March, Sturm und Drang, French Overture, Siciliano, and so on, and on.
