Janis Joplin's Social Problems Exam

Essay 1:

The six social processes involved in social organization and dis-organization are:

1) communication – the conveying of one’s ideas and attitudes is essential to any relationship.

2) conflict – conflict is inevitable and necessary in any inter-working contact.

3) competition – competition is the driving force and is inherent in any relationship, like it or not.

4) assimilation – the absorbing into a culture new and vital elements is mandatory.

5) accommodation – because any action involving 2 or more people naturally gives rise to conflict, the parties concerned must be able to compromise, accommodate and work together.

6) co-operation – this sixth stage, added by the authors of our text, is a more idealistic view. People not only accommodate to ease their job, they co-operate for the general good.

(Essay) 2

The six attitudes toward social problems are:

1) lack of concern – this attitude certainly accomplishes little good and in fact may contribute to the perpetuation of the problem.

2) resignation – this is a stoic attitude and has little to say for man’s belief in himself. Needless to say it accomplishes nothing in the way of aiding or alleviating the problem.

3) cynical – this pseudo-intellectual attitude is rarely, I fell, the opinion of a man who is concerned with or has thought about the problem at all. More likely, someone will feign a knowing, cynical attitude because of his lack of knowledge.

4) retribution – a product of our religious heritage, this attitude very staunchly holds that those who sin must suffer, and eye for an eye, etc. Although most proponents of this theory feel they are seeking only deserved punishment, vengeance seems more likely.

5) sentimentalist – perhaps the most well-meaning, but unfortunately not truly grasping the essence of the problem, the sentimentalists attempt to soothe rather than help. Rather like the pilot who dropped the bomb, returning with a 29¢ tube of Ungentine. Too late and not effective.

6) social scientific – the most recent development, fostered by the increasing need for answers, this title encompasses all of the “-ologies,” like sociology, psychology, etc. Attempting to find the essence of the problem, not condemning it, this attitude seems by far and away, the only workable and remedial attitude.

(Essay) 3

The stages of intoxication are determined by the level of alcohol in the blood stream. At 0.2% the drinker’s senses are dulled, his inhibitions loosed, and he feels gay. At 0.3%, a drinker begins loosing motor control and is generally more confused. At 0.4% he is barely functioning – his reflexes are slowed considerably and he no longer is capable of making decisions. At 0.5%, a drinker passes out, i.e., lapses into a coma. His functioning has been impaired to the degree that he, actually, no longer functions (excuse me…) This is considered a safety valve, for if he were to remain conscious and continue drinking (this is no time to quit!) he would of certainly die because the body can tolerate little more than 0.6% to 0.8%.

(Essay) 4

Lombroso, a physician, noted what he felt was a correlation between criminal’s tattoos and their crimes. This led him to much empirical theorizing. His first major premise was the criminal type, which was beatle (? not sure the first letter is a "b" - Roger) - browed, stoop-shouldered, and very animal-like. But this criminal type did not unfortunately encompass all of the criminals he came into contact with, so he varied his theory to include three major classifications of criminals: the “born” criminal, the epileptic, and the person with innate, latent tendencies toward crime, not unlike his first classification, but who, reacting to his environment and surrounding, became a criminal.

This latter category is the most important because it is the first recognition that society may have some dues in the development of criminals. Lombroso laid too much stress on physical factors, because, as we feel today, they have little to do with a criminal’s development, however he is important, and does indeed warrant the title the “Father of Criminology”, for his forward-looking social theories.

Personally I feel Tarde to be much more modern in his theories, but you asked about Lombroso…

Grade was 99...as in A+...as in Janis Joplin...period.
