Examples could be multiplied many times, but the main objectives of this study are to show how the work of five male authors coheres within a framework of psychodynamic theory and to stimulate enquiry along these lines.

Unique among the states for its founding as an extension ofthe French empire, its
four decades of rule by the Spanish, its incorporation into the United States by the
Louisiana Purchase in 1803, and its complex mixture of cultures, languages,
religions, and traditions, New Orleans and its surrounding plantations and
bayous provided a virtually inexhaustible wealth of issues for literary exploration.
The French Creole obsession with culture and refinement gave elegance to the
city, but ...

I find this sort of cultural argument superficial and not very helpful. The obsession
with culture may itself be a cultural phenomenon, which is an interesting topic to
explore, and I shall come back to it. But often little more is meant by the term "
cultural friction" than that the United States and Japan represent two different
cultures. Of course it is so, but what does it tell us about trade deficits or rates of
exchange? Little or nothing. The idea of a communications gap, too, I feel, is
often an ...

Obsession: Insanity. and. Culture. in. 16th. Century. Germany. H. C. ERIK
MIDELFORT Like sharp stones in a rushing stream, the words we use can be
worn smooth and indistinct in the rush of argument and communication. It does
not take much reflection to see that the "popularity" of "popular culture" depends
necessarily upon what we mean by the people. Shall we mean the illiterate in
contrast to the literate, the unlearned, the folk, the poor, the laity, the rural, the
commoners, the ...

The good will that emanates from numerous cross- cultural and intercultural
communication texts is best expressed by the often-quoted Deborah Tannen (
1986: 43) dictum: “the fate of the earth depends on cross-cultural communication.
” Somewhat provocatively, I am tempted to re-formulate this statement as “Cross-
cultural communication is part of the world's problems.” Our contemporary
obsession with “culture” and “cultural difference” and “intercultural
communication” is “a way of ...

the problem of obsession This work has a complex and di≈cult set of aims. On a
simple level, it is an attempt to describe the history of a disorder that was often
considered a disease. But I think it is important to understand that no disease
exists outside its cultural context. Even cholera, the gold standard for a “real”
disease, means one thing in one culture and another in a diΩerent culture. Susan
Sontag has shown us that disease is about metaphors.18 So thinking of
obsession as ...

Because I was raised in a predominantly White environment, my parents were
worried about whether I was developing a positive self-concept in the face of
often racist and oppressive experiences. Due to their positive encouragement
and diligent effort to protect me and to help me process oppressive experiences, I
grew to love, appreciate, and embrace my cultural heritage. Most would say that I
have a passion or obsession for cultural issues, and I have dedicated my
personal and ...

What we will be exploring in these pages are some of the most respected values
of our culture and how they may not represent the values of Jesus. Thus, we may
be in for some real surprises. For example, our society values consistency. It
values efficiency. But are these values of Jesus? Or are they cultural obsessions?
Must one be consistent to be a follower of Jesus? Are Christians necessarily
efficient? In some of these chapters I will admittedly be “over-stating the case,” so
that we ...

Obsession. with. Eros. as. Pointing. beyond. Itself. An obvious manifestation of
the problematic nature of eros for modern people which lends itself to
phenomenological reflection is the way contemporary culture is increasingly '
obsessed with sex.' Problems of sexuality almost always present themselves as
embedded in the larger and more earthshaking problems of eros. As we have
already seen in the chapter on 'Sexuality and Infatuation,' sexuality originarily
intends not merely the ...
