  • Affirmative Action: An Overview of the History of Resistance, Struggle and
           Achievements of the Black Population in the Brazilian Context

    • Pages: 1 - 25
      Abstract: This article seeks to present a reflection on affirmative actions that are characterized as public policies aimed at minority groups. On this perspective, we will make a cutting in the racial inequalities between blacks and whites in the Brazilian context, for the disparities between these groups are not marked only by social class, but also by the ambiguous racism that prevails in the country. Thereby, we seek to make the complaint of racial inequality in Brazil, as well as the announcement of answers achieved by the struggle of the black population, personified on the black movement and in actions in favor of black men and women who historically lived on the margins of society. In this sense, we organized the paper into three parts, plus the introduction and closing remarks. First, we present a brief historical and social context of race relations in Brazil. Then, we speak of about the steps and achievements of the black movement in the country. Finally, we highlight the affirmative action adopted for the benefit of black people, especially in the educational field, like the quota system in universities.

  • Segle XIX. Esperances i Fracassos de la Modernitat a l'Educació.
           Situació d'Espanya

    • Authors: Joan Tahull Fort, Iolanda Montero Plaza, Fidel Molina Luque
      Pages: 26 - 51
      Abstract: La Modernitat s’inicia al segle XV i cristal·litza al XIX amb unes característiques molt concretes. Aquest període es caracteritza per l’ús de la raó com a element prioritari en l’organització de les diverses institucions socials. L’escola no és aliena a aquest procés, també hi està influïda. Hi ha sectors de la societat espanyola que demanen un ensenyament públic, gratuït, lliure i de qualitat. Tanmateix, aquestes reivindicacions topen amb la realitat espanyola conservadora. Determinats grups polítics paralitzen totes les propostes progressistes. La situació de l’educació espanyola al segle XIX era que les inversions de l’Administració eren molt minses. Els equipaments educatius eren en molts casos lamentables. També, la remuneració dels mestres era molt baixa. La mateixa societat tenia una consideració del mestre negativa. El país tenia un col·lectiu molt gran d’individus analfabets, els quals vivien en la indigència. L’economia era subdesenvolupada i primitiva. Hi havia una manca d’interès evident de les elits per abordar les diverses qüestions socials i econòmiques fonamentals.

  • Does Culture Matter in Economic Behavior?

    • Pages: 52 - 82
      Abstract: In this article we address the following question: does culture play a role in economic behavior?  We conclude that culture influences economic behavior in all three areas of economic activity: work, consumption, and leisure. Our proof lies not so much in replicating certain experimental results, but in documenting in real-world circumstances how culture influences economic behavior. Attention to the role of culture in economic affairs acknowledges that humans are more than the one-dimensional, autonomous, individuals, as premised in mainstream economics, whose very existence is temporal, whose role in economic affairs is strictly instrumental, and whose behavior is virtually the same across cultures. We have argued that humans are two-dimensional twice over. First, humans are individual beings and social beings: solitary and communal, self-made and culture-bound, autonomous and dependent, rational and emotional, self-centered and other-centered. Second, humans are both matter and spirit. The duality of the human person, rooted in individuality and sociality, affords an opportunity to unify economic theory wherein individuality is the focus of microeconomics and sociality is the center of macroeconomics. Putting the isolated individual at the very heart of economics closes down that opportunity and assures that mainstream economic theory will remain truncated indefinitely. The makeover of mainstream economics will take place once neo-classical economists accept that the ultimate end of economic systems relates not to maximum personal net advantage but to integral human development.

  • Effect of Yoga on Human Aggression and Violent Behavior - A Review of the
           Indian Yoga Scriptures and Scientific Studies

    • Authors: Govindaraja Setty A.G., Subramanya Pailoor, Mahadevan B.
      Pages: 83 - 104
      Abstract: Among the deviant human behaviors, aggression appears to be the most prevalent and disturbing one, affecting one and all. Uncontrolled aggression/violent behavior could cause a significant toll, equally affecting both involved and the non-involved. This delinquent human behavior has been well addressed in Indian yogic scriptures. It provides a theoretical framework to understand the causes, ill-effects, need for peace, harmony, and ways to correct the aggression behavior.  It is also claimed that yoga is a way for inner bliss and external coherence; and with this time-tested technique, it is possible to bring about a sense of inner peace and emotional stability, thus having potential to correct aggressive behaviors. This review paper brings out the studies made to find out effect of yoga on human aggression/violent behavior.
