CHAPTER FIFTEEN: Corruption of interpretation through narcissism

Slice ePub May 22, 2014

“I know how great is the effort needed to convince the proud of the power and excellence of humility, an excellence which makes it soar above all the summits of this world, which sway in their temporal instability, overtopping them with an eminence not arrogated by human pride”

(St Augustine, 1972, p. 5)

That which is most desired and most resisted is an interpretation. It is desired because it is a gateway to freedom; it is T resisted because freedom is terrifying. As a free being I become responsible for the passions of my soul. This is agonizing, and I struggle to escape from such a hell. I know with a deadly certainty that I resist interpretations. I only accept an interpretation after a dire struggle. I will try every other avenue rather than the one where I accept freedom and myself. Wilfred Bion (1967, p. 112) says development depends upon a crucial decision: whether to evade frustration or to modify it. For “frustration” I would substitute the word “agony”. I believe that what applies to myself is true for all human beings. I have evidence to support this belief from observation of a limited group of people who have come to me for psychoanalysis. This evidence, however, will not convince someone who believes that we are fashioned entirely by our genetic inheritance and our micro and macro-social environment. Those who espouse this view will classify an interpretation as a conditioned stimulus and will therefore disagree with the foundations upon which this paper is based: that an interpretation confronts me with my own freedom. This is the metaphysical presupposition that underpins the clinical problem that I want to put before you (Collingwood, 1969).

Kenmore Sq is the epicenter of student life in Boston. In addition to the Boston University behemoth, there are more than a half-dozen colleges in the area. As such, Kenmore Sq has a disproportionate share of nightlife, inexpensive but nondescript eateries and dormitories disguised as brownstones.

Work breakdown structure

CHAPTER 4

Operational Productivity

Introduction

Productivity is defined as the quantitative relationship between what we produce and the resources which we use. Higher productivity is concerned with increasing output from the same, or smaller, use of resources. Productivity is an overall conception which can be expressed in terms of output from labour, or from services, or from the capital invested. In the long term it is only through an increase in productivity that economic success can be achieved. In the context of this chapter productivity is related to an examination of work in an operational context which leads to the investigation of all the factors which affect the efficiency and economy of the situation being reviewed, in order to effect improvement. An operations manager is mainly concerned with the control of resources on the construction site. Any cost control system tends to make comparisons with the estimate only in retrospect. What is required is a measure of the use of resources or level of productivity. A work breakdown structure is firstly defined in relation to production activity, together with relevant criteria for control models. Next, the sources of information from which operation times can be derived is considered and finally the work sampling method of investigating productivity is illustrated.

Google, the iPod, spam: Only a handful of technological forces have gone from tiny to towering seemingly overnight, and Facebook is part of this elite group. Theres one big reason: Setting up a Facebook account couldnt be easier. In the time it takes to say howdy, you too can be part of the frenzy.

Thenif you likeyou can fill out an optional Facebook profile, a series of questions regarding your likes, dislikes, educational and professional background, and so on. You can even include photos of yourself. The more accurately and completely you describe yourself to Facebook, the more useful youll find the site. (After all, headhunters and old college buddies cant find you if you fake your information.) This chapter shows you how to sign up for an account, fill out your profile, and get to your personalized Facebook Home page.

Of course, the more info you give Facebook, the greater the risk that someone will steal or misuse that information. See Chapter14 for ways to get the most out of Facebook while minimizing your risk.
