Oppression and responsibility : a Wittgensteinian approach to social practices and moral theory by Peg O'Connor( Book )

8 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and held by 335 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Combating homophobia, racism, sexism, and other forms of discrimination and violence in our society requires more than just focusing on the overt acts of prejudiced and abusive individuals. The very intelligibility of such acts, in fact, depends upon a background of shared beliefs, attitudes, and behaviors that together form the context of social practices in which these acts come to have the meaning they do. This book, inspired by Wittgenstein as well as feminist and critical race theory, shines a critical light on this background in order to show that we all share more responsibility for the persistence of oppressive social practices than we commonly suppose-or than traditional moral theories that connect responsibility just with the actions, rights, and liberties of individuals would lead us to believe. First sketching a nonessentialist view of rationality, and emphasizing the role of power relations, Peg O'Connor then examines in subsequent chapters the relationship between a variety of "foreground" actions and "background" practices: burnings of African American churches, hate speech, child sexual abuse, coming out as a gay or lesbian teenager, and racial integration of public and private spaces. These examples serve to illuminate when our "language games" reinforce oppression and when they allow possibilities for resistance. Attending to the background, O'Connor argues, can give us insight into ways of transforming the nature and meaning of foreground actions

Oppression, privilege, and resistance : theoretical perspectives on racism, sexism, and heterosexism( Book )

4 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 153 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This anthology is a philosophical reader on racism, sexism, heterosexism, and classism with a distinct theoretical framework that provides coherence and cohesion to the readings. The book is framed by a model of racism, sexism, heterosexism, and classism that understands these phenomena as interlocking systems of oppression. Resting upon this oppression model are two sets of theories, one concerned with the phenomenon of privilege--the companion of oppression--and the other with resistance--the response to oppression

Using non-participant observation in the clinical setting by Melissa J Bloomer( )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This case study details the use of non-participant observation to explore how nurses recognize when patients in an acute medical hospital ward are dying and how they respond in terms of the care they provide. This study was conducted in 2011 in two wards in one metropolitan acute care hospital in Melbourne, Australia. The complexities, merits, and challenges of using non-participant observation in a clinical setting will be discussed. A detailed research protocol was developed to define the observation field and participants and the process of consent and how data were recorded. Challenges faced in this study included staying true to the purpose of the study when other opportunities existed, developing and ensuring positive relationships to safeguard the success of the study, and being prepared for occurrences or actions not anticipated in the study protocol. Despite the complexity of undertaking research using non-participant observation, the richness and the depth of data collected make it a highly valuable research method
