Changing Images of Man (1974)

  Editor : OW Markley and Willis W Harman Publish : 1974 Format File : PDF Preview : Changing Images of Man is an unusual work, one that enthuses some, displeases others, and leaves few neutral. It was undertaken for a specific purpose: to chart, insofar as possible, what changes in the conceptual premises underlying Western society would lead to a desirable future. Obviously a research objective containing many value-laden assumptions! Thus it is perhaps not surprising that a number of questions about the background of this study have been asked by students in classes at the dozen or so colleges and universities that have used Changing Images of Man as a text. The most common questions concern the study’s origins. Why was it undertaken ? Who supported it ? What kinds of researchers wrote it ? Additionally, most have wanted to know how it is viewed now, some 7 years later, by the researchers who wrote it. And what it may have led to by way of social change. The purpose of this introduction to the Pergamon edition is to answer some of these questions. In 1968 the U.S. Office of Education launched two research centers in an ambitious undertaking…

EBook Propaganda

Author : Edward L. Bernays Publish : 1928 Format Ebook : PDF Preview : Propaganda, an influential book written by Edward L. Bernays in 1928, incorporated the literature from social science and psychological manipulation into an examination of the techniques of public communication. Bernays wrote the book in response to the success of some of his earlier works such as Crystallizing Public Opinion (1923) and A Public Relations Counsel (1927). Propaganda explored the psychology behind manipulating masses and the ability to use symbolic action and propaganda to influence politics, effect social change, and lobby for gender and racial equality.[1] Walter Lippman was Bernays’ unacknowledged American mentor and his work The Phantom Public greatly influenced the ideas expressed in Propaganda a year later.[2] The work propelled Bernays into media historians’ view of him as the “father of public relations.”[3] Source : Wikipedia You need to login to view the rest of the content.
