His Life

Ivan Pavlov
His life Ivan Pavlov received worldwide acclaim and won the Nobel Prize in 1904 because of his work and research in the field of physiology; he discovered a considerable amount of information concerning the digestive systems of dogs. In addition, because of his research in conditioned reflexes, which he did not start until he was fifty, Pavlov was able to contribute to several different areas in psychology. For instance, behavioral, comparative, and developmental psychology, were benefactors of his studies, and many consider Pavlov as one of the founding fathers of experimental psychology. Seemingly, Pavlov had two different careers; however, in accordance to the text, An Introduction to Theories of Learning, he started a third career at age eighty. He applied his knowledge of conditioning to mental illness, the result of which was the book, Conditioned Reflexes and Psychiatry (1941), many regard this as a major contribution to psychiatry (Olson, Hergenhahn, pg. 165). Ivan Petrovich Pavlov was born on September 14, 1849, in the town of Ryazan, Russia, the eldest of 10 children born into a family of six generations of men who served the church. In fact, in the biography, “Ivan Pavlov, Exploring the Animal Machine” the author illustrates Pavlov’s religious background; he states, “For six generations the Pavlov men had served Russia’s Eastern Orthodox Church, slowly making their way up the ladder toward priesthood. There were few other ways for an ambitious peasant to better his lot. So, in the late 18th century, at the time of Peter the Great, a peasant known only as Pavel became a singer and chanter in a small church in rural Russia. The next three generations of Pavlov men all became priest’s assistants. Only in the mid-19th century did the Pavlov family finally break through to the…...

One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich

...In “One day in the life of Ivan Denisovich”, a novel by Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn, the ill-fated protagonist Shukov, a prisoner of a Stalinist Labor camp, is forced to withstand the nearly insufferable living conditions. By using overpowering external forces – stripping prisoners of their identities by allocating them numbers instead of names, the removal of individuality, through the character of Fetyukov who has lost his dignity, symbolism – spoon and blade, the Solzhenitsyn depicts how the protagonist, Shukov, has succeeded in maintaining his dignity. Shukov’s struggle to maintain his dignity throughout the imprisonment despite the overpowering external forces is remarkable. Solzhenitsyn portrays this dignity in two different ways, one is being treated with respect, and the other one is his own self-worth. The labor camp degrades the prisoners’ piously by substituting their names into letter and number combinations such as “Schcha-854” and grouping them into one mass such as “Gang 104”. This clearly shows that in the camp prisoners have had their identities are taken away. By eliminating their individuality of name, their individual characteristics are ultimately eradicated. The prisoners are reduced to insignificance by mere digits to represent who they are. This taking of their dignity is further exacerbated as Shukov and the prisoners are treated with such disrespect that they seem as insignificant as objects, as they are given a total lack of privacy. Although other......

Ivan Pavlov

...Ivan Pavlov was born in Russia, September 14, 1849. After graduating from Ryazan Ecclesiastical High School, Pavlov attended the Ryazan Ecclesiastical Seminary. It was there that he found a love of natural science. In 1870, he chose to leave the seminary and continue his education with St. Petersburg University. While attending St. Petersburg University, Pavlov began working with Elie de Zion, a physiologist. After graduation in 1875, Pavlov moved on to the Military Medical Academy in St. Petersburg and became a laboratory assistant to Zion. Once Zion was dismissed as chair of the academy’s physiology department, Pavlov transferred to the Veterinary Institute for two years. In 1877, he traveled to Breslau, Germany to study digestion under Rudolf Heidenhain. Pavlov later returned to Germany to continue his education and research in circulation and digestion, after earning his medical degree in 1879. Eighteen years later, in 1895, Pavlov became the chairman of physiology at the St. Petersburg Institute for Experimental Medicine. He retained this position for much of his career. In 1904, Pavlov received the Nobel Prize for Medicine or Physiology ("Ivan Pavlov," 1999). Pavlov is most known for the experiments he conducted on the digestive system of dogs. It was during this research that he made the discovery of learned responses and how environmental events, or stimuli, control behavior. The original experiment was to test the different levels of salivation depending on the food...

Ivan Pavlov

...Ivan Pavlov (1849-1936) "Science demands from a man all his life. If you had two lives that would not be enough for you. Be passionate in your work and in your searching." - Ivan Pavlov Best Known For: • Classical conditioning • Research on physiology and digestion. • 1904 Nobel Prize in Physiology. Birth and Death: • Ivan Petrovich Pavlov was born September 14, 1849 • He died on February 27, 1936 Early Life: Ivan Pavlov was born in a small village in Ryazan, Russia, where his father was the village priest. His earliest studies were focused on theology, but reading Charles Darwin's On the Origin of the Species had a powerful influence on his future interests. He soon abandoned his religious studies and devoted himself to the study of science. In 1870, he began studying the natural sciences at the University of Saint Petersberg. Career: Pavlov's primary interests were the study of physiology and natural sciences. He helped found the Department of Physiology at the Institute of Experimental Medicine and continued to oversee the program for the next 45 years. While researching the digestive function of dogs, he noted his subjects would salivate before the delivery of food. In a series of well-known experiments, he presented a variety of stimuli before the presentation of food, eventually finding that, after repeated association, a dog would salivate to the presence of a stimulus other than food. He termed this response a conditional reflex. Pavlov...

Death of Ivan Lynch

...In The Death of Ivan Ilych, Tolstoy uses death to explore the question of what makes for a happy life. Ivan Ilych, the main character, has lived his whole life with the aim of enjoying himself: winning power at work, spending money, buying things to impress his friends, throwing parties, and playing bridge (his favorite thing of all). He seeks only what is pleasant, and deliberately avoids whatever is unpleasant. He has always done that in which society would perceive as the “right” thing. He married not for love, but rather because that was what he needed to do. All of his friends are basically the same way. Yet once Ivan falls ill and is faced with the prospect of dying, he realizes that while there is pain in his disease and death, the real pain comes from his attitude towards life that he has been unable to relinquish. His suffering brings him to recognize that his whole life has actually been a very unhappy one, though he didn't know it. Before becoming sick, Ivan Ilych had willfully ignored his mortality, just like everyone around him. Once he realizes that he is actually dying, however, he no longer can. His suffering and his fear of death have the effect of completely cutting him off from the normal world around him. For his friends, colleagues, and family members, life goes on just as before. Ivan is dismayed to discover that none of them seems to understand or care about what he's experiencing. He is left to face his fears and agonies alone, without comfort from......

...psychology, two important behavior concepts that are taught are classical and operant conditioning. Operant conditioning, invented by B.F. Skinner, (or instrumental conditioning) is a type of learning that is modified by consequences of an individual’s behavior. Classical conditioning is a learning process that occurs establishing associations between different events. Both of these types of conditioning are used to treat phobias. Some say that they both also treat nightmares, obsessions, depression, compulsions, anorexia and anxiety. Both techniques are used by cognitive behavior therapist. An inheritance of a behavior is a result of both types of conditioning. To illustrate classical conditioning, Pavlov used dogs in his famous analysis. When doing this experiment, Pavlov measured the dogs salivary secretions by presenting the dog with food which showed the existence of the unconditioned response. The food was the unconditioned stimulus and caused an uncontrollable response when presented alone because of the salivation of the dog. Extinction is the existence of the unconditioned response by presenting a dog with a bowl of food and the measuring its salivary secretions. Extinction also occurs in operant conditioning. Operant conditioning’s goal is reinforcement. Reinforcement is any event that increases the chances that a response will occur again. In operant conditioning, extinction occurs if reinforcement is withheld. Also involved in conditioning is a factor......

The Legacy of Ivan the Terrible

...Stevens CHY 4U May 30, 2014 The Legacy of Ivan the Terrible The legacy of Ivan Vasilyevich, Tsar of Russia from 1547 until his death in 1584 (Kort 31), is like a pineapple. In order to enjoy the goodness of the sweet fruit inside, one must laboriously get past the tough skin and sharp, stiff leaves. Much like a pineapple, determining the legacy of Ivan Vasilyevich has its drawbacks, as there was a fair share of inadequacies during his reign, but after one gets past this, one will discover that Ivan’s reign was indeed one that benefitted Russia for the short and long term. Ivan Vasilyevich was indeed an effective leader of Russia as his reign would lay the foundation for making Russia one of the most powerful nations the world has ever seen. His expansion of Russia, Renaissance pursuits, and effective domestic policies are all reasons why Ivan was an effective leader of Russia. Ivan’s territorial gains that included Siberia as well as Kazan and Astrakhan to the east (Kort 35) would benefit Russia from an economic, political, and social standpoint. First of all, he managed to annex a large Muslim population that lived in these areas (“Prominent Russians: Ivan IV the Terrible”) and turned Russia into a multi-ethnic and multi-religious state. The significance of this is enormous as this happened in the 1500’s, a time where Europeans, fresh off the Dark Ages, were generally intolerant to any religions other than Christianity. In fact, Ivan made the people that he conquered,......

Death of Ivan Ilych

...1. The Death of Ivan Ilych. Leo Tolstoy’s, The Death of Ivan Ilyich, portrays a man who has squandered his entire existence with the inability to perceive the likelihood of his own demise. Tolstoy depicts the physical deterioration of Ilych’s life and the subsequent revelations that he has at the time of his death. His physical dismay is brought on by an accident while decorating his home. Ilych’s spiritual rejuvenation is brought on by the recognition of his oncoming death and his subsisted shallow life. He is a man with total disregard towards the emotions and sufferings of others. His chosen companions obtain the same attitudes towards life. These individuals only look towards prominence, control and proprietary gains in life. Ilyich is regarded as a successful man; he is a high court judge and is among the professional class of 19th-century Russia. He has died at the age of 45 but seems to have lived a good life and been given many prominent opportunities.

His colleagues learn of his death through a newspaper announcement. A few of the men are stunned to learn of his death and have a hard time comprehending how someone so close to them in age and station has died.

...Sir Robert Peel By Cherrie Cooper CJA/214 11/12/2011 Professor Stephen Szabo Historically the organization of policing in the United States wasn’t organized and structured appropriately, until an English man by the name of Sir Robert Peel enacted a legislation that changed the prior organization of policing in the United States. According to (Siegel & Senna, 2008, p. 162). ”Sir Robert Peel’s legislation that established their first organized police force in London” In 1829 of London, Sir Robert Peel referred to as England’s home secretary developed the Metropolitan Police Act, a concept or idea to improve the organization of police. The Metropolitan Police Act was the first organized police, employed more than 1,000 men, who wore a distinctive uniform, led by two magistrates, and later became known as “bobbies” after their creator. Though the Metropolitan Police Act improved policing and successfully achieved its’ goal, it was a difficult process, in (Siegel & Senna, 2008, p. 162). States “The early bobbies suffered many problems. Many were corrupt, they were unsuccessful at stopping crime, and they were influenced by the wealthy. Owners of houses of ill repute who in the past had guaranteed their undisturbed operations by bribing watchmen now turned their attention to the Bobbies. Metropolitan police administrators fought constantly to terminate cowardly, corrupt, and alcoholic officers, dismissing in the beginning about one-third of the bobbies each year”......
