Objectivity, Sociology and Measurement ... Hodges' model

"Big data is all the rage. 

We have become increasingly obsessed in economics and in medicine and in public policy with what can be measured. Evidence-based is always better it would seem, than going with our gut or worse, a wild guess that springs from our biases. This passion for evidence is not new. Carved in stone, on the outside of the social science building where I got my PhD at the University of Chicago is a quote attributed to Lord Kelvin, the physicist who gave us the Kelvin temperature scale and who died in 1907:"

“When you cannot measure, your knowledge is meager and unsatisfactory.”

Russ Roberts


"Like Weber and Dilthey, Mannheim opposes the positivist approach which seeks to render all social facts measureable and 'unambiguously ascertainable'. He invites us:- 'to think what becomes of our psychic and social world when it is restricted to purely externally measureable relationships', and argues that 'There can no longer be any doubt that no real penetration into social reality is possible through this approach . . . It is clear that a human situation is characterizable only when one has also taken into account those conceptions which the participants have of it, how they experience their tensions in this situation, and how they react to the tensions so conceived." p.160-161.
 
THE TASKS OF SOCIOLOGY

"The tasks which are presented to sociology are of a two-fold character. On the one hand there is the need to establish a valid model for the analysis of a particular social system which he is studying. And on the other hand, once such a model is established he may be faced with explaining some partial and particularized form of behaviour in terms of the part it plays in the total system. However, in any particular research situation there will be a choice as to what shall be regarded as a total system, that is what the scale of our interest should be, or what segment of the total system we should study." p.185.

Psychopathology and the ‘Scaling Up’ Problem

This conference will focus upon the 'scaling up' problem in the context of psychopathology. More precisely, it will focus upon the extent to which phenomenological and enactive accounts of psychopathology are, or must be, 'representation hungry'. Whilst explicitly anti-cognitivist phenomenological and enactive accounts of psychopathology are present in the literature, very little work has been carried out on discerning the extent to which they require the positing of representation. This is somewhat surprising, because 'representation hungry' cognition (thought, imagery, hallucination) plays a prominent role in most psychopathologies.

During the conference, we aim to consider questions like: is it possible to provide non-representational accounts of psychopathology?; if so, is it desirable?; if not, does this damage the prospects of phenomenological and enactive explanations of psychopathology?; does the representational status (or lack thereof) of a given account have important ramifications for clinical theorising and practice?; and, more generally, is the concept “representation” helpful, harmful, or irrelevant to understanding psychopathology?.

In short, whilst anti-cognitivist accounts of psychopathology have been provided by phenomenologists and enactivists, very little has been said about the 'scaling up' problem with regards to them. The aim of the conference is to fill this gap.

The conference will be held via the Zoom platform on Monday the 5th, Tuesday the 6th, and Wednesday the 7th of October, from 15.00 to 17.30 CET.

National Day of Arts in Care Homes

 

 

Not long to go now until the second National Day of Arts in Care Homes, which takes place on Thursday 24 September.

During lockdown, we have seen a wealth of amazing activities and projects take place in care homes across the UK, including corridor choirs, garden concerts, socially distanced art sessions, online ceramics tutorials, live streamed concerts and dance, pen pal projects and postal art initiatives. Care settings have used the arts to raise morale, keep residents and staff stimulated, keep in touch with friends and loved ones, express worries and fears and also to celebrate birthdays and other occasions. 

Please show your support for the provision of arts activities in care homes on 24 September by organising an event, sharing stories and spreading the word.

"Is there something perverse, if not archly insistent, about complicating things with theory? Do we really need anything like thing theory the way we need narrative theory or cultural theory, queer theory or discourse theory? Why not let things alone? Let them rest somewhere else-in the balmy elsewhere beyond theory. From there, they might offer us dry ground above those swirling accounts of the subject, some place of origin unmediated by the sign, some stable alternative to the instabilities and uncertainties, the ambiguities and anxieties, forever fetishized by theory. Something warm, then, that relieves us from the chill of dogged ideation, something concrete that relieves us from unnecessary abstraction." p.1.

"Functional magnetic resonance imaging studies of the brain have shown that emotional pain stimulates the somatic pain system, and the somatic pain system activates the nuclear accumbens and ventral tegmental areas, which are the seats of emotion and reward pathways (O'Connor et al., 2008). This biological evidence underscores the complex and bidirectional association between physical and emotional pain." (p.14).

Bourdieu*: habitus, field, horizons and careers

"For Bourdieu, structure is not only objective in a Levi-Straussian sense. 
Structures can also be highly subjective." p.13.
 
"In one sense, habitus is social inheritance ... but it also implies habit, or unthinking-ness in actions, and 'disposition'. Some dispositions are transferable; fort example, a practical taxonomy can be utilized to find relevance in a new situation." p.14
 
"If habitus brings into focus the subjective end of the equation, field focuses on the objective:" p.15.

"Field is therefore a structured system of social relations at a micro and macro level." p.16.
 
"Education is a field, made up of identifiable interconnecting relations." p.20.
 
"Young people make career decisions within what we refer to as horizons for action. The horizons are the perspectives on and possibilities for action given in any field or intersection of fields." p.97.

The 4P's in Hodges' model

PURPOSE
PROCESS
PRACTICE*
POLICY

 

Always conscious of how Hodges' model, like many other 'models' is an idealisation. As such we routinely refer to 'social action', 'political process' and 'social process'. 

I have, I suppose, allocated the four P's to the respective domains on a primary context - primary domain basis.^ So 'process' as per time, events, sequence, algorithm, logic, cause-effect.

Lifelong learning in Hodges' model

I've lost count of the visits to Hay-on-Wye, most recently last week. Sadly none have coincided with the literature festival (thus far). Three full days arriving at 0815, a coffee at Angie's cafe to start. 

In searching for 'evidence' to support Hodges' model I am clearly biased in terms of what I will find. Brent Hayward's paper and exchanges on twitter prompt the realisation there is much to define. The axes, the respective care - knowledge domains, career, health career, the center of the model, education and more. I have 6,000 words on what could be thought of as a 'manual'. Nobody, can say "Read the ****** manual!" if none exists, beyond Brian Hodges' course notes. 

So I've been picking up a few textbooks. Despite being a little dated (and so familiar) I'm sure these sources can help place Hodges' model on a more concrete footing. At least reveal what schools of thoughts and ideas Hodges' model can claim as a foundation and support. The shelves of several shops were well served with lifelong learning and so here are some points of note, beginning with interpretations of 'learning'.

  • Behaviourist approach
  • Gestalt
  • Cognitive - constructivist 
  • Humanist

The plastic space that it is, Hodges' model can be used with any of these, as with proposals for pedagogy and andragogy (chap. 2) and the identities associated with the social nature of 'learner identity' in education.

 - where the word 'enfolds' means 'contains within itself'. A theory in which some interpretation of the EEEE principle holds, is said to possess (the property of) wholeness; that is, each part contains, within itself, the whole (more precisely, the near-whole: every other part). We first discuss classical set theory and wholeness. We then interpret EEEE set theoretically and investigate whole set theory. A method is described by which classical set theory can be made to manifest a degree of wholeness, and further lines of investigation are suggested. A brief discussion of various examples of the EEEE principle is given in the Appendix"
