Full Text Available Como cierre prospectivo de un coloquio dedicado al catolicismo social, este artículo reconoce, en su primera parte, la crisis del discurso social de la Iglesia. Crisis no solo actual, sino también en el origen e historia de una tradición que se estima es uno de los antecedentes de la renovación conciliar, que en su diálogo con el mundo invita a la entrada del tiempo en la teología y en la ética. El porvenir de esta tradición en crisis requiere del recurso a la razón filosófica y a la realidad histórica. Por ello en la segunda parte se recogen los aportes de la filosofía política de Paúl Ricoeury de Charles Taylor en tres asuntos claves: lo bueno respecto de lo justo, el holismo frente al atomismo, los derechos colectivos frente a la exclusividad de los derechos individuales. Finalmente, en la tercera parte recogiendo su legado y estos debates filosóficos se reflexiona sobre el aporte del catolicismo social latinoamericano a un continente en el que los procesos de mercantilización, despolitización e individualismo, que acompañan esta modernidad tardía globalizada, amenazan con la disolución de nuestras comunidades históricas en sociedades sin atributos y sin identidad cultural. Las tradiciones vivas del continente, seculares y religiosas, y entre ellas el catolicismo, son el mayor recurso para enfrentar este desafío que suma a la cuestión social el de la cuestión liberal.As a closing perspective at a colloquium dedicated to Social Catholicism, this article recognizes, in the first section, the crisis in the social discourse of the Church. This crisis is not exclusively a present reality, but is also found in the origins and history of a tradition that is considered to be one of the precedents to conciliar renewal, which in its dialogue with the world invites modern times into theology and ethics. The future of this tradition in crisis demands recourse to philosophical reason and historical reality. So, in the second part

Full Text Available El presente artículo muestra una de las fuentes de la Revolución Mexicana más defectuosamente conocidas -el catolicismo social- y su concatenación con el movimiento encabezado por Francisco Villa, sus demandas obreras y políticas y sus modelos de gobierno, mediante la figura de varios dirigentes entre los que destaca Silvestre Terrazas Enríquez. Asimismo destaca el trabajo de organización de las sociedades mutualistas obreras y de la prensa de posición católica, durante el Porfiriato, con la revolución en Chihuahua.This article shows one of the most misunderstood sources of the Mexican Revolution, social catholicism and its link with the movement led by Francisco Villa, its workers' and political demands and models of government, through the figure of various leaders, particularly Silvestre Terrazas Enríquez, and the organizational work of workers' mutual societies and the catholic press during the Porfiriato with the revolution in Chihuahua.

Full Text Available Desde que, recientemente, la historia del catolicismo social ocupa a la historiografía española, la atención se ha centrado preferentemente en el momento de máxima expansión y cristalización del movimiento, aproximadamente desde la primera guerra mundial hasta la guerra civil española. La maduración, en esta época, del sindicalismo católico, tanto rural como urbano, y las polémicas consiguientes sobre su neutrahdad, confesionalidad y amarillismo atrajeron especialmente la atención de los historiadores. Por otro lado, dentro de la dificultad general que presenta este tipo de estudios por la gran dispersión de las fuentes, la dificultad era mucho mayor si se pretendía reconstruir la primera etapa: la de los Círculos y las primeras Semanas Sociales, pues a la! dispersión había que añadir la ausencia aún de unas organizaciones suficientemente asentadas, y la escasez de pubUcaciones periódicas específicamente católico-sociales.

En primer lugar, Po-Chia repasa la evolución que el concepto «disciplina social» ha tenido desde su aparición en 1969, cuando se usó en clave política relacionado con la monarquía absolutista que, para desarrollarse, se basa en la disciplina de la sociedad comparando las tesis de Oestreich y Weber. En segundo lugar, analiza el concepto «confesionalización», surgido de los postulados de Zeeden. Este segundo concepto analizado choca con el primero, ya que defiende la gran importancia de la teol...

Full Text Available Este trabajo surge del interés por situar la discusión sobre el catolicismo social y la cuestión social en Chile en una nueva perspectiva historiográfica que relacione la historia social, la llamada nueva historia política y la historia de las ideas. Su intención es comprender esta discusión como parte del proceso de construcción nacional. Postula que la visibilización del proletariado y sus condiciones de trabajo, al provocar un cuestionamiento por parte de la clase dirigente y de los católicos que la integraban, indujo una reflexión sobre los integrantes de la nación chilena, es decir, sobre la soberanía nacional, en un contexto de democratización de la república.This work arises out of an interest in situating the discussion on Social Catholicism and the social question in Chile within a new historiographic perspective that puts social history, so-called new political history and the history of ideas into relationship with each other. The author's intention is to understand this discussion as part of the process of national construction. The author proposes that the act of making visible the proletariat and its working conditions, provoking questioning by the leadership class and of the Catholics that composed it, induced a reflection about membership in the Chilean nation-that is, about national sovereignty, within the context of the democratization of the republic.

La propiedad fue adquirida en el 2007 por la empresa denominada Academia RC Internacional S.A. la cual tenía la visión de convertirla en una finca criadora de búfalos de agua, ya que presentaba condiciones como llanuras y zonas inundables que favorecen esta práctica.A finales del 2007 se importó de Guatemala pie de cría, tanto hembras como machos; los animales poseían un perfil determinado y un alto mestizaje lechero, debido a que, en la finca de procedencia llevaban varios años mejorando el hato mediante la selección de los animales así como mejoramiento genético a través de la inseminación artificial utilizando butoros de las razas Murrah y Mediterránea principalmente.De este modo se inicia el desarrollo y mejoramiento del Porvenir enfocándose tanto en pastos como en infraestructura. Se construyeron instalaciones para la estabulación de animales, mangas y bretes para el manejo de estos, también se realizó una división de potreros para mejorar su rotación, ayudada por la instalación de cercas eléctricas.Durante el desarrollo de estas obras se consumió casi el primer año de trabajo por lo que durante este tiempo las búfalas no se ordeñaron y fueron mantenidas de una forma extensiva en donde los bucerros se criaron consumiendo toda leche.A finales del 2008 se inicia el ordeño a mano con un grupo de búfalas, esta práctica se realizó hasta que se terminó la sala de ordeño y se instaló completamente el equipo para el ordeño mecánico; luego de terminada la infraestructura se pudo tecnificar el ordeño hasta la actualidad.

Full Text Available Este artigo tem como objetivo analisar as distinções sociais constituídas no catolicismo na Província de Sergipe Del Rey durante o século XIX. A análise está centrada nos critérios de admissão de duas irmandades religiosas atuantes na cidade de Estância. A pesquisa demonstra que havia uma população dividida entre as irmandades do Santíssimo Sacramento e de Nossa Senhora do Rosário, reflexos de uma hierarquia social mais diversificada, que diziam respeito a critérios de cor, riqueza e prestígio social. O espaço apresentava significados, na medida em que a cidade reproduzia simbolicamente a sociedade e sua organização em estratos sociais. Em outras palavras, observamos que o campo religioso católico na povoação de Estância seguia aos mecanismos de expressão da segregação e apresentava-se como representativo das oposições significativas entre os segmentos sociais, caracterizados a partir destas associações que definiam a posição social e os gostos dos seus integrantes.This article aims to analyze the social distinctions incorporated in the Catholicism in the province of Sergipe Del Rey during the nineteenth century. The analysis will be centered in the criteria of admission of two active religious brotherhoods in the city of Estancia in Sergipe, Brazil. The research shows that there was a population divided between the brotherhoods of the Blessed Sacrament and Our Lady of the Rosary, reflections of a more diversified social hierarchy about the criteria of race, wealth and social prestige. The space presented meanings in so far as the city reproduced, symbolically, the society and its organization in social strata. In other words, we notice that the Catholic religious field in the population of Estancia followed the mechanisms of expression of the segregation and presented itself as representative of the oppositions between the social groups, which were characterized by associations which defined the social position

Thus, we focus on its belonging to the evolutionary scientific paradigm, and the adoption of a racialist perspective on regards to the contemporany social aspects that the author intends to study. It is also possible to observe, in this rethorics, other aspects that are in tension with this paradigm, such as equality ideas, related to the author’s socialism. Those contradictions reveal the debates. from the end of XIXth century and XXth century, in wich the Latin-american space had to be conceived in reference to its modernization’s processes, as well as to the recent American hegemony, after the 1898 Spanish defeat against the USA.Nuestro trabajo indaga en la retórica del diagnóstico contemporáneo sobre las sociedades latinoamericanas en el ensayo de Manuel Ugarte, El porvenir de la América latina. Para ello se detiene en su vinculación con la matriz evolucionista y en la adopción de una perspectiva racialista respecto de los aspectos sociales contemporáneos que el autor se propone estudiar. Aparecen a su vez, en esta retórica, otros abordajes que entran en tensión con el paradigma cientificista mencionado, que incluyen principios igualitarios ligados al socialismo del autor. Estas contradicciones son reveladoras de los debates que, entre finales del siglo XIX y comienzos del XX, tuvieron como núcleo problemático la necesidad de pensar el espacio latinoamericano en el marco de los cambios derivados de los procesos de modernización en América Latina, y teniendo en cuenta, a la vez, la nueva hegemonía de los Estados Unidos posterior a la derrota española de 1898.

Full Text Available Os anos 1964-1985 se caracterizam pela mobilização popular e pela emergência de uma poderosa vontade de mudança social. Queria-se uma libertação das opressões históricas que a maioria do povo vinha sofrendo. Paradoxalmente, foi um tempo de autoritarismo e desrespeito aos direitos sociais e humanos. Este trabalho pretende analisar o movimento do catolicismo brasileiro, especialmente sua luta por esses direitos. Diversos aspectos atuam e influenciam no contexto político-religioso desse período. A reconstrução do significado desse movimento valeu-se de ampla documentação.

Full Text Available In 1976 the archbishop Marcel Lefebvre was suspended a divinis by the ordination of priests without the permission of Pope Paul VI. The public repercussion of this act of disobedience converted the french prelate into a symbol of catholic traditionalism and of the resistance to the post-conciliar evolution of the Church. This article examines the impact of the “Lefebvre affair" in our country during the period 1976-1978, especially in the field of the traditional catholicism. The aim is to contribute to the explanation of several reasons for which the "lefebvrism" failed in Spain unlike other nations such as France or Germany.En 1976 el arzobispo Marcel Lefebvre fue suspendido a divinis por la ordenación de sacerdotes sin la autorización del Papa Pablo VI.

En este artículo se explica el impacto del “caso Lefebvre” en España durante el periodo 1976-1978, especialmente en el ámbito del catolicismo tradicional español representado por la Hermandad Sacerdotal Española, el movimiento Fuerza Nueva o las revistas religiosas Iglesia-Mundo, Roca Viva o ¿Qué pasa?. El objetivo es contribuir a la explicación de algunas razones por las que el lefebvrismo fracasó en España a diferencia de lo ocurrido en Francia o Alemania.

Desde los comienzos de la Dictadura Civil, el jefe de Gobierno intentará la institucionalización del Régimen, fascinado por el ejemplo del Fascismo italiano. Así, en el manifiesto al país, publicado el 5 de Septiembre de 1926, el general Primo de Rivera señalaba que: «Fracasado el Sistema Parlamentario en su forma actual... nadie que no estuviera loco pensaría en restablecerlo en España... el Gobierno y la Unión Patriótica tienen la concepción de un Estado de nueva estructura... célula principal de la Nación ha de ser el Municipio y de él, la familia, con sus rancias virtudes y su moderno concepto ciudadano.

Full Text Available La conjunción de una serie de factores económicos, sociales y políticos en la Argentina de los noventa dio como resultado el momento de mayor fragmentación política de los trabajadores. Esto fue logrado a partir de la desestructuración de la sociedad comenzada en la dictadura militar de mediados de los setenta y profundizada mediante la implantación del modelo neoliberal a comienzos de la última década del siglo XX. Se terminó entonces dilapidando toda posibilidad de consolidación de la una clase obrera mas o menos homogénea, cuyo germen había sido prefigurado bajo el primer gobierno peronista y se había puesto de manifiesto en las distintas etapas de la resistencia a gobiernos que amenazaban los intereses de los sectores populares. Sin dudas se trataba de políticas destinadas a asegurar una sociedad disciplinada con el fin de consolidar el poder de los sectores dominantes más relacionados con la especulación financiera y los intereses de los grupos económicos transnacionales. Al mismo tiempo, no sólo se lograba una sociedad económica y socialmente fragmentada sino que se reproducía una cultura individualista extrema que potenciaba dicha situación. En el presente artículo estudiamos los elementos condicionantes en la cultura del trabajo que existían en la historia previa a la implantación del modelo neoliberal y los factores contextuales que permitieron su desarrollo. Al mismo tiempo analizamos los factores que, en un marco de fragmentación y transformación constante, estructuran actualmente las identidades del trabajo.

Full Text Available This article aims to study the religious and political role played by the press to Colombian Catholicism in the nineteenth century. It exposes several hypotheses. The first: in the nineteenth century, the press went from being a marginal instrument for Colombian Catholicism, to become, at the end of the century, a bastion for the Church Romanization, political and religious struggle, catechetical activity and still, social control. Derived from the first hypothesis, it suggests that, despite being permeated by currents mostly traditionalists, the Catholic Church, to decide to use the press for public debate, adopted modern positions, joining a fundamental aspect of modernity: public discussion between proposed different world, society and politics, discussion involving external and internal debate on the definition of “identity” Catholic, which involved several positions and currents. Methodologically was used a hermeneutic - historical analysis of Colombian religious press, the statistical interpretation of the religious press in the archives and libraries of the country and the corresponding application of the critic of sources.

Full Text Available Based on the concept of eating disorders, this paper aims on the investigation of our relation with body, discussing the normative practices that constitute our ways of life. From an aesthetic standard that relates body to beauty and success, we intend to put in question the social context where eating disorders have been produced. To achieve this objective, we base our study on anorexia and bulimia analysis. The symptoms of these psychopathologies have difficult treatment and reflect an excessive worry about weight, corporal image and fattening up. Our interest is to contribute to this discussion, avoiding an individualized perspective, focused on anorexic and/or bulimic young boy or girl and on the dysfunctional interactions of his/her familiar system, but shifting the focus on eating disorders as devices that denunciate the extremism of the way of thinking, feeling and experiencing body in our society. Therefore, our objective is to present some subsidies that allow us to dislocate this matter from the exclusive scope of individual experience to an analysis of the social practices of our relation with body that reside contemporary experience, considering eating disorders in the present time as the exacerbation of a social symptom.

Full Text Available In the Spanish Constituent assembly of 1854 some previously unknown issues were raised about Church-State relations, including tolerance of worshipping and religious freedom. The clergy, whose interference in political confrontations was nothing new, placed themselves as a majority alongside one of the factions of the Moderate party, which, in a contradictory way, used the new mechanisms of political representation arisen with the representative State of the citizen (The press and Parliamentary representation to fight against liberalism. A defense of Church rights directed towards the sacralization of society was undertaken by the pulpit, the press, the parliamentary tribune and the Printing press. These represented the main lines of an analysis which wakes reference to the provinces that nowadays make up Castilla-La Mancha, where the neocatholic brend had a reasonable electoral support and relied on the ideological, numerical and organizational support provided by the Archbishopric of Toledo and the diocese of Cuenca.En las Cortes Constituyentes de 1854 se plantearon cuestiones hasta entonces inéditas en las relaciones Iglesia-Estado: tolerancia de cultos, libertad religiosa o confesionalidad del Estado. El clero, cuya injerencia en las confrontaciones políticas no era en absoluto novedosa, se posicionó de forma mayoritaria al lado de una de las fracciones del partido moderado que, contradictoriamente, utilizó los nuevos mecanismos de representación política surgidos con el Estado representativo de la ciudadanía (prensa y representación parlamentaria, para combatir el liberalismo. Desde el púlpito, la prensa, la tribuna parlamentaria y la imprenta se emprendió una defensa de los derechos de la Iglesia orientada a la sacralización de la sociedad.

Considerando essa premissa, este artigo apresenta, problematiza e demonstra as relações entre a Teologia da Libertação e a história renovada da Igreja produzida pelo grupo CEHILA desde a análise histórica de livros considerados referenciais e, sobretudo, de artigos da Revista Eclesiástica Brasileira (REB, pertinentes ao conceito de romanização do catolicismo brasileiro – uma das noções centrais da produção historiográfica CEHILA com importante repercussão nacional e internacional.

Full Text Available O artigo recupera o par conceitual pertença/desafeição religiosa, usado nas pesquisas de “sociologia religiosa” nas décadas de 1950 e 1960, para analisar os fatores da perda de fiéis pela igreja católica, como demonstra o Censo IBGE de 2010. Toma como referência dados de uma pesquisa realizada na região metropolitana de Belo Horizonte em 2012. Com base nessa pesquisa, demonstra que a diminuição de fiéis não se deve a conversão mas a simples trânsito do catolicismo a outra religião. A raiz da desafeição religiosa está na perda de fé na necessidade da mediação sacramental da Igreja para a salvação eterna e no caráter sacrificial da missa. Ela pode ser contrabalançada pelos laços familiares de pertença, mas também estes apresentam sinais de enfraquecimento. O artigo conclui afirmando que, no caso do catolicismo, a pertença religiosa supõe la��os afetivos, de fé e de compromisso pessoal do fiel com a igreja. Quando os três se enfraquecem, ocorre a desafeição religiosa propriamente dita. Palavras-chave: Pertença religiosa. Desafeição religiosa. Censo IBGE 2010. Belo Horizonte. Sociologia religiosa Abstract The article revisits the religious conceptual pair belonging / disaffection, used by the "sociology of religion" in the 1950s and 1960s, to analyze the factors of loss of faithful by Catholic Church, as shown in the 2010 census. The text is based on data from a survey conducted in the metropolitan region of Belo Horizonte in 2012. Based on this research, the article shows that the decrease of the faithful is not due to conversion but due to the mere transit of Catholicism to another religion. The root of religious disaffection is the loss of faith in the necessity of sacramental mediation of the Church for eternal salvation and in the sacrificial character of the mass. It can be counterbalanced by the family religious belonging, but data signs that they also are weakening. The article concludes that, in
1. ¿Cómo hacer una lectura foucaultiana de Foucault? Tal es la pregunta que se plantea el historiador francés Roger Chartier en su artículo La quimera del origen, y que desvela a más de un lector de Foucault. Más acá del problema de si debemos leer a un autor según el sistema de sus categorías, Chartier apunta a la conocida crítica foucaultiana a los “conceptos habituales que gobiernan en nuestra sociedad la relación con los textos” (Chartier, 1996:17) esto es, a las nociones de autor, obra y...

Sociality may not be a defining feature of social learning. Complex social systems have been predicted to favour the evolution of social learning, but the evidence for this relationship is weak. In birds, only one study supports the hypothesis that social learning is an adaptive specialisation to social living. In nonhuman primates, social group size and social learning frequency are not correlated. Though cetaceans may prove an exception, they provide a useful group with which to test these ...

Full Text Available en este artículo se aborda la experiencia socioeconó - mica de los mexicanos y los chinos de Estados Unidos, desde una perspectiva en la que los problemas de método, teoría y aplicación constituyen la mayor preocupación. Se destaca la utilidad heurística del individualismo metodoló - gico y la teoría general de la racionalidad, para explicar los resultados de esta experiencia en términos de estratifica - ción social. Se aclaran las dificultades de aplicación teórica, derivadas del corolario weberiano, en el que descansa el a priori hipotético planteado aquí, que considera las ideas y las creencias religiosas como elementos susceptibles de inhibir o estimular los procesos de estratificación social. Se demuestra la pertinencia de dicho a priori hipotético, aun cuando la realidad social en materia de estratificación social –favorable a los católicos de ascendencia europea y a los chino-estadounidenses– pueda ser materia para cues - tionar la tesis de Weber con respecto al catolicismo y el confucianismo.

Social anxiety disorders are various, frequent and invalidant. Social phobia is characterized by marked and persistent fear of social or performance situations in which embarrassment may occur including, for example, fear of public speaking. In clinical setting, the majority of social phobics report fears of more than one type of social situation. Social phobia tends to develop early in life, with a life time prevalence of 2-4%. Pharmacotherapy and behavioural and cognitive therapy are communly used. PMID:20623894

Estudia además el papel central que jugó –y aún juega– este acervo, por un lado, en la creación de uno de los principales museos que existen actualmente en la localidad, el Museo Municipal de Arte Decorativo “Firma y Odilo Estévez”; y, por el otro, en la configuración de la identidad y memoria pública de estos coleccionistas que los perpetuarán como figuras destacadas del pasado local en el imaginario institucional y colectivo a través de los objetos que alguna vez les pertenecieron.Abstract The article reconstructs, appealing to a focus that conjugates the contributions of the social history, the cultural history and the museological studies of patrimony, the history of a private collection of art gathered by the marriage conformed by Firma Mayor and Odilo Estévez Yáñez, two members of the dominant social group that sat down the basis for the construction of a bourgeois order in the city of Rosario at the beginning of the XX century. The essay also studies the central paper that played –and still plays– this collection, on one hand, in the creation of one of the main museums that exist at the moment in the town, the Museo Municipal de Arte Decorativo “Firma y Odilo Estévez”; and, in the other hand, its incidence in the configuration of these collectors’ cultural identity and public memory that will perpetuate them as prominent people of the local past in the institutional and collective imaginary through the objects that belonged to them at some time.

Social cognition concerns the various psychological processes that enable individuals to take advantage of being part of a social group. Of major importance to social cognition are the various social signals that enable us to learn about the world.

Such signals are particularly important in infant development. Social referenc...

In this presentation, we argue that the sociology of social networks may provide interesting insights with regard to the emergence of social entrepreneurship both at micro and macro levels.

Full Text Available The field of social business is growing rapidly and attracting increased attention from many sectors. The term itself shows up frequently in the media, is referenced by public officials, have become common on universities. The reasons behind the popularity of social entrepreneurship are many. On the most basic level, there’s something inherently interesting and appealing about entrepreneurs and the stories of why and how they do what they do. The interest in social entrepreneurship transcends the phenomenon of popularity and fascination with people. Social entrepreneurship signals the imperative to drive social change, and it is that potential payoff, with its lasting, transformational benefit to society, that sets the field and its practitioners apart. Although the potential benefits offered by social entrepreneurship are clear to many of those promoting and funding these activities, the actual definition of what social entrepreneurs do to produce this order of magnitude return is less clear. In fact, we would argue that the definition of social entrepreneurship today is anything but clear. As a result, social entrepreneurship has become so inclusive that it now has an immense tent into which all manner of socially beneficial activities fit. In some respects this inclusiveness could be a good thing. If we can achieve a rigorous definition, then those who support social entrepreneurship can focus their resources on building and strengthening a concrete and identifiable field. Absent that discipline, proponents of social entrepreneurship run the risk of giving the skeptics an ever-expanding target to shoot at, and the cynics even more reason to discount social innovation and those who drive it.

Social cognition is a major problem underlying deficiencies in interpersonal relationships in several psychiatric populations. And yet there is currently no gold standard for pharmacological treatment of psychiatric illness that directly targets these social cognitive areas. This chapter serves to illustrate some of the most innovative attempts at pharmacological modulation of social cognition in psychiatric illnesses including schizophrenia, borderline personality disorder, autism spectrum disorders, antisocial personality disorder and psychopathy, social anxiety disorder, and posttraumatic stress disorder. Pharmacological modulation includes studies administering oxytocin, ecstasy (MDMA), modafinil, methylphenidate, and D-cycloserine. Furthermore, some background on social cognition research in healthy individuals, which could be helpful in developing future treatments, is provided as well as the potential for each drug as a long-term treatment option.

Full Text Available Normal 0 false false false EN-US X-NONE X-NONE MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 Social Phobia is a condition characterized by a marked and persistent fear of social or performance situations in which embarrassment may occur. Exposure to the social or performance situation almost invariably provokes an immediate anxiety response. Although adolescents and adults with this disorder recognize that their fear is excessive or unreasonable, this may not be the case in children. Most often, the social or performance situation is avoided, although it is sometimes endured with dread. In individuals younger than 18, symptoms must have persisted for at least 6 months before is disorder is diagnosed. This diagnosis should not be given if the fear is reasonable given the context of the stimuli (e.g., fear of being called on in class when unprepared. The disturbance must cause clinically significant distress or impairment in social, occupational, or other important areas of functioning. This disorder is not due to a medical condition, medication, or abused substance. It is not better accounted for by another mental disorder.

The profile of social enterprise raises the question whether or not this type of organization can comply with social marketing peculiarity. The reason for making this question is that a proper definition of marketing for social enterprises is needed for both managerial and marketing functions of the (social organizations. Thus, starting from a previous research of defining social enterprise, the aim of the paper is to adopt a theoretical position for connecting social enterprise to the social marketing peculiarity. The research is based on literature analysis and comparing the social marketing definitions, fitting to social enterprise’s profile.

Looking at social commerce, a bunch of bewildering phenomena attracts the attention of social psychologists. The way customers participate today shows attitudes and ethical behavior which cannot be explained from the inherent conditions of Web 2.0 environments alone. Fraud often succeeds, when you do not expect it, and honesty can be found under circumstances that do not support honesty at all. The current situation seems to result from customers assigning experience and ethics from real world business to virtual business environments. But there are indications that this situation may change. Social commerce could suffer as soon as customers would use its inherent weaknesses to their own advantage. The following article outlines first approaches to research into this topic.
Full Text Available Introduction Social happiness is part of the social welfare component and depends more on social and economic determinants than on psychological and medical interventions. Meanwhile , it is one of the core concepts of sustainable development. Being happy is just one of the desirable wishes of life in every society . A nation is fresher and certainly wealthier when its citizens are happy. In this type of society , citizens have optimistic attitudes towards life and things around them. From 2000 onwards, variables such as happiness, hope in future , pleasure and satisfaction have been included as key variables in UN debates to determine level of development s in countries . This phenomenon is measured by the density of social networks and relationships , in many studies is associated with social health and happiness (Kawachi, 2008. Durkheim showed that suicide rates in populations with low levels of participation and social cohesion were more than cohesive communities (Halpern, 2005. Theorists argue that when people reach to a desired location or target , they become happy . According to Lerner, new communities are participatory societies in which modernization process is advanced , a move from traditional society to participatory society is inevitable. In t his view, economic participation means increased activity in the market and an increase in income, political participation means participation in elections , cultural participation means utilization of mass media and emotional involvement means empathy and psychological mobility (Lerner 1969: 86 . Materials & Methods This is quantitative study based on survey. We used Descriptive statistics and indicators such as dispersion and mean , standard deviation , minimum and maximum scores. For inferential statistics and to test the hypotheses, we used Pearson 's correlation coefficient and analysis of variance . A lso for explaining the social happiness variable , a stepwise multiple

Social Norms are a pervasive phenomenon in social and economic life. They have important economic consequences and constitute powerful social constraints on individual behaviour beyond the legal constraints and the market constraints usually considered by economists. This paper presents a simple theory of social norms that is based on the social exchange approach as developed by e. g. HOMANS, BLAU and more recently by HOLLÄNDER. The sanctioning of deviations from the norm by social (dis)appro...
A challenging approach for social enterprise is considered the marketing approach. The profile of social enterprise raises the question whether or not this type of organization can comply with social marketing peculiarity. The reason for making this question is that a proper definition of marketing for social enterprises is needed for both managerial and marketing functions of the (social) organizations. Thus, starting from a previous research of defining social enterprise, the aim of the pap...

No, this is not the title of the latest horror film to appear on our screens, only a reflection of the very tense situation in which we find our two social mainstays: the health insurance scheme and pension fund. If both are in deficit today, this is not due to a lack of timely warning. For several years, the Member States have been asked to make decisions. However, with the exception of a few small measures, they continually delay the moment when they will truly have to face up to their obligations. We remind you that CERN is not only our employer, but also our State. When we join the Organization, we leave our national systems. CERN Council has supreme power to decide on the level of our salaries and of our social security. As far as the latter is concerned, the fact that the share of contributions is fixed at 1/3 for the staff and 2/3 for the Organization has often been the reason for much procrastination by Council. This waiting game could soon be over though, as this year will see the conclusions of t...
Social memory plays a pivotal role in social behaviors, from mating behaviors to cooperative behaviors based on reciprocal altruism.

Meanwhile, humans are known to show a social stress response during face-to-face social interactions, which might ...

The motivation for this exploration derives from the ‘individualisation thesis’, which calls into question the structuring impact of social class. At the same time, social policy discourse has, under the mantra of ‘social investment’, undergone significant change, with greater emphasis being placed on individual responsibility. H...

This dissertation has a two-fold aim. The first aim is to develop a set of sociological, methodological and theoretical approaches for investigating how alcohol becomes central in the lives of Danish teenagers. This set of approaches acknowledges some perspectives - i.e. gender, age, friendships...... struggle for social recognition, teenagers constitute a drinking pressure which somewhat excludes less- and non-drinking teenagers. However, at the same time drinking alcohol is also fun - and it is an important way of communication and reproducing friendships at parties. Moreover, teenagers experience...... drunkenness as a way of transforming the body and making oneself approachable for romantic encounters. These somewhat contradictory conclusions suggest that alcohol cannot be understood in terms of a singular model. Thus, the thesis summary discusses these conflicting findings by introducing the concept of...
The topics of social capital, social cohesion, and social inclusion are increasingly gaining interest in economics, sociology, and politics, particularly in regards to addressing poverty and designing related policies. Here, we seek to develop the connections and interdependencies between these related concepts. We offer a framework for understanding the differences between these concepts and how they fit together in individual decision making.

Full Text Available Despite its influence the Teresian Institute, founded by the priest Pedro Poveda in 1911, was little studied during the 1920s, not only educationally but also within its cultural and public scope. This group of catholic women –highlighting María de Echarri, Carmen Cuesta and Josefa Segovia– stand out by constituting a nucleus of women who were prepared and committed to re-Christian Spanish society at the time in the midst of a strong catholic-secular confrontation. A large number of them had obtained their degrees in the official Teachers’ Training College and carried out their professions as teachers in ordinary schools and as inspectors. Their collaboration with the rising Catholic Action for Women, their participation in the first National Congress of Catholic Education together with their own activities, show the significance of these catholic women in the social and political life but especially within the educational field in Spain during those years.
Un grupo poco estudiado en los años 20 del pasado siglo a pesar de su influencia no solo en el ámbito educativo sino también en el cultural y público, es la Institución Teresiana, fundada por el sacerdote Pedro Poveda en 1911. Este grupo de mujeres católicas –entre las que destacan María de Echarri, Carmen Cuesta y Josefa Segovia–, destacan por constituir un núcleo de mujeres preparadas y empeñadas en recristianizar la sociedad española de estos años en medio de la dura confrontación catolicismo-laicismo. Buena parte de ellas habían obtenido sus títulos en la Escuela Superior de Magisterio y ejercían su profesión como profesoras de escuelas normales e inspectoras. La colaboración con la naciente Acción Católica de la Mujer, la participación en el Primer Congreso Nacional de Educación Católica así como sus propias actividades, dan cuenta de la significatividad de estas mujeres católicas en la vida social, política y sobre todo educativa de la Espa

In the middle section we describe research and development of the prototype that we developed using free technology over the idea of open social ...

With the ubiquitous characteristic of the Internet, today many online social environments are provided to connect people. Various social relationships are thus created, connected, and migrated from our real lives to the Internet environment from different social groups. Many social communities and relationships are also quickly constructed and connected via instant personal messengers, blogs, Twitter, Facebook, and a great variety of online social services. Since social network visualizations can structure the complex relationships between different groups of individuals or organizations, they are helpful to analyze the social activities and relationships of actors, particularly over a large number of nodes. Therefore, many studies and visualization tools have been investigated to present social networks with graph representations. In this chapter, we will first review the background of social network analysis and visualization methods, and then introduce various novel visualization applications for social networks. Finally, the challenges and the future development of visualizing online social networks are discussed.
Full Text Available Dalits, as the ex-untouchables prefer to be called, are a very distinct social group. While belonging to a broad class of have-nots they suffer an additional disability of social oppression. Economically, most of them are still the poorest of poor. There is a need for the dalits movement to emerge as a movement for genuine emancipation and social transformation of weaker sections of the society. Social justice is a fundamental principle of democratic principles engaged in a politics of social transformation, to bring about a fundamental defeat of the brahminical social order. It is a change in the present economist definition of such transformation and strives for its redefinition in social terms.

This article proposes graphical methods to determine whether commodity tax changes are "socially improving," in the sense of improving social welfare or decreasing poverty for large classes of social welfare and poverty indices. It also shows how estimators of critical poverty lines and economic efficiency ratios can be used to characterize socially improving tax reforms. The methodology is illustrated using Mexican data.
Social networks are a prominent feature of many social media sites, a new generation of Web sites that allow users to create and share content. Sites such as Digg, Flickr, and Del.icio.us allow users to designate others as "friends" or "contacts" and provide a single-click interface to track friends' activity. How are these social networks used? Unlike pure social networking sites (e.g., LinkedIn and Facebook), which allow users to articulate their online professional and personal relationships, social media sites are not, for the most part, aimed at helping users create or foster online relationships. Instead, we claim that social media users create social networks to express their tastes and interests, and use them to filter the vast stream of new submissions to find interesting content. Social networks, in fact, facilitate new ways of interacting with information: what we call social browsing. Through an extensive analysis of data from Digg and Flickr, we show that social browsing is one of the primary usa...

This paper examines social capital and its relation with economic development. We focus on the role that interpersonal relationships play in social exchange, whether through the market or through the provision of public goods.

But the benefits from social capital are likely to be unequally distributed. Given these features, documenting empirically the benefits of...

Nevertheless, social media marketing may also refer to advertising certain social issues, such as NGOs’ or civic actions’ promotion. Precyzy...

Full Text Available A growing consensus in social cognitive neuroscience holds that large portions of the primate visual brain are dedicated to the processing of social information, i.e., to those aspects of stimuli that are usually encountered in social interactions such as others’ facial expressions, actions and symbols. Yet, studies of social perception have mostly employed simple pictorial representations of conspecifics. These stimuli are social only in the restricted sense that they physically resemble objects with which the observer would typically interact. In an equally important sense, however, these stimuli might be regarded as ‘non-social’: the observer knows that they are viewing pictures and might therefore not attribute current mental states to the stimuli or might do so in a qualitatively different way than in a real social interaction. Recent studies have demonstrated the importance of such higher-order conceptualisation of the stimulus for social perceptual processing. Here, we assess the similarity between the various types of stimuli used in the laboratory and object classes encountered in real social interactions. We distinguish two different levels at which experimental stimuli can match social stimuli as encountered in everyday social settings: (i the extent to which a stimulus’ physical properties resemble those typically encountered in social interactions and (ii the higher-level conceptualisation of the stimulus as indicating another person’s mental states. We illustrate the significance of this distinction for social perception research and report new empirical evidence further highlighting the importance of mental state attribution for perceptual processing. Finally, we discuss the potential of this approach to inform studies of clinical conditions such as autism.
This paper investigates how social composition affects social conflict and economic development when property rights are unenforceable. Groups follow Markovian strategies for consumption and investment and may also spend effort in an resource appropriation contest. It is shown that conflict prevents investment and growth in a society of symmetric groups. In a society at peace economic growth may occur. Growth, however, is decreasing in the degree of social fractionalization and smaller than i...

Social networks are a prominent feature of many social media sites, a new generation of Web sites that allow users to create and share content. Sites such as Digg, Flickr, and Del.icio.us allow users to designate others as "friends" or "contacts" and provide a single-click interface to track friends' activity. How are these social networks used? Unlike pure social networking sites (e.g., LinkedIn and Facebook), which allow users to articulate their online professional and personal relationshi...

This brief presents new architecture and strategies for distribution of social video content. A primary framework for socially-aware video delivery and a thorough overview of the possible approaches is provided. The book identifies the unique characteristics of socially-aware video access and social content propagation, revealing the design and integration of individual modules that are aimed at enhancing user experience in the social network context. The change in video content generation, propagation, and consumption for online social networks, has significantly challenged the traditional video delivery paradigm. Given the massive amount of user-generated content shared in online social networks, users are now engaged as active participants in the social ecosystem rather than as passive receivers of media content. This revolution is being driven further by the deep penetration of 3G/4G wireless networks and smart mobile devices that are seamlessly integrated with online social networking and media-sharing s...

Research has demonstrated that social inequality affects public health. Social capital theory has shown that social exchange, social contacts, and social support are also important. We test social inequality and social capital, using the data from the National Population Health Survey, 1996â€”7. We find weak support for capital theory and show that effects often depend on measures of social capital and health. Social capital appears less useful in explaining the health status of Canadians.

This edited volume, contributed by prominent researchers in this field, presents a wide selection of topics on social network data mining such as Structural Pr
Full Text Available While both volunteer computing and social networks have proved successful, the merging of these two models is a new field: Social Volunteer Computing. A Social Volunteer Computing system utilizes the relationships within a social network to determine how computational resources flow towards tasks that need to be completed, and the results of these computations are added back into the social network as content. Such a system will provide scientists and artists a new facility to obtain computational resources and disseminate their work. RenderWeb 2.0, a prototype Social Volunteer Computing system, is introduced that allows animations created in Blender to be distributed and rendered within Facebook.

The main idea is that the PAYG social security system might affect fertility and human capital's decisions and therefore, may negatively impact the aggregated growth rate of the economy. These effects lead to an endogenous erosion of the financial basis of the PAYG social security program so that, as a consequence, the PAYG system is ...

Full Text Available The purpose of this study is to identify the correlation between the corporate social responsibility performance and the Organisational Social Capital. Inductively, through grounded theory, this paper uses secondary data to develop a theoretical model which presents the relationship between the following concepts: business codes, stakeholders, Corporate Social Performance (CSP and Organisational Social Capital (OSC. This study brings together two main areas of research, namely: Organisational Social Capital and business ethics. This represents a gap in the literature, to which this research will address. Three propositions are put forward and discussed using secondary data collection methods. The findings suggest that there is a strong correlation between the characteristics which improve the quality of organisation-stakeholders relationship and the effectiveness of implementing business codes and, therefore, the increasing Corporate Social Performance. The proposed ethical framework has, at the same time, a similar effect by incrementing Organisational Social Capital, because it shares similar features with the relation between organisation-stakeholders, business codes and CSP.

Full Text Available Problems and responses during the pontificate of León XIII experienced changes of orientation after arrival of Pío XII. One of the problems was how to extend the presence of the Church among society, and expand relations of the latest with the Church. Responses were freedom and justice. Freedom to reflect on faith, thinking over its origins and dialoguing with culture, and to use recognised civil rights. Justice as a moral compromise towards the inhuman life conditions suffered by the population. León XIII was frightened at any innovation, but accepted the debate.
Los problemas y respuestas presentes en la etapa de León XIII experimentaron un cambio de rumbo con la llegada de Pío X. Los problemas enraízan la presencia de la Iglesia en la sociedad y de ésta en la Iglesia. Las respuestas, la libertad y la justicia.

Full Text Available Para 1994, las preocupaciones sobre los avances científicos en términos de biomedicina como la manipulación genética, la reproducción asistida, la anticoncepción y el aborto llevaron al Papa Juan Pablo II a instituir formalmente a la Pontificia Academia para la Vida con el objetivo de defender y promover la vida mediante el estudio y monitoreo de los avances médicos y el derecho. En Argentina, para fines de la década del noventa, algunos movimientos católicos iniciaron la formación de laicos en bioética, apoyando la idea de que son ellos, especialmente los profesionales de la salud, quienes deben difundir los postulados doctrinarios en el territorio, allí donde se encuentran los bautizados. Este trabajo intentará dar cuenta de las estrategias de producción identitarias por parte de algunos líderes católicos bioéticos de un grupo que se dedica a formar laicos en bioética, durante el año 2008.In 1994, the Catholic Pope, Juan Pablo II, founded the Pontifical Academy for Life due to the new scientific developments in genetics, contraception, in vitro fertilization and abortion. The main objective of this academy was to defend and promote human life by means of studying and monitoring science and law progress. At the end of the 1990s, In Argentina, some catholic movements began training lays, especially health professionals, in bioethics so that they could spread their ideas and beliefs in the territory, where the baptized people are. This work will treat the identity production strategies of some catholic bioethics' leaders of a group whose work is to teach bioethics to lays during 2008.

Full Text Available A growing literature in human social genomics has begun to analyze how everyday life circumstances influence human gene expression. Social-environmental conditions such as urbanity, low socioeconomic status, social isolation, social threat, and low or unstable social status have been found to associate with differential expression of hundreds of gene transcripts in leukocytes and diseased tissues such as metastatic cancers. In leukocytes, diverse types of social adversity evoke a common conserved transcriptional response to adversity (CTRA characterized by increased expression of proinflammatory genes and decreased expression of genes involved in innate antiviral responses and antibody synthesis. Mechanistic analyses have mapped the neural "social signal transduction" pathways that stimulate CTRA gene expression in response to social threat and may contribute to social gradients in health. Research has also begun to analyze the functional genomics of optimal health and thriving. Two emerging opportunities now stand to revolutionize our understanding of the everyday life of the human genome: network genomics analyses examining how systems-level capabilities emerge from groups of individual socially sensitive genomes and near-real-time transcriptional biofeedback to empirically optimize individual well-being in the context of the unique genetic, geographic, historical, developmental, and social contexts that jointly shape the transcriptional realization of our innate human genomic potential for thriving.

Current state-of-the-art in big social data analytics is largely limited to graph theoretical approaches such as social network analysis (SNA) informed by the social philosophical approach of relational sociology. This paper proposes and illustrates an alternate holistic approach to big social data...... platforms. We present and discuss a theoretical and conceptual model of social data followed by a formal description of our technique based on set theory and event studies with a real-world social data example from Facebook. We then illustrate our new approach by reporting on the design, development......, and evaluation results of a state-of-the-art visual analytics dashboard, the Social Set Visualizer (SoSeVi). Using SoSeVi, we conducted a real-world case study that consists of approximately 90 million Facebook user interactions from 11 different companies that have been mentioned in the traditional media...
With the recent explosion of popularity of commercial social-networking sites like Facebook and MySpace, the size of social networks that can be studied scientifically has passed from the scale traditionally studied by sociologists and anthropologists to the scale of networks more typically studied by computer scientists. In this chapter, I will highlight a recent line of computational research into the modeling and analysis of the small-world phenomenon - the observation that typical pairs of people in a social network are connected by very short chains of intermediate friends - and the ability of members of a large social network to collectively find efficient routes to reach individuals in the network. I will survey several recent mathematical models of social networks that account for these phenomena, with an emphasis on both the provable properties of these social-network models and the empirical validation of the models against real large-scale social-network data.

Three global developments situate the context of this investigation: the increasing use of social media by organizations and their employees, the burgeoning presence of social media policies, and the heightened focus on corporate social responsibility (CSR). In this study the intersection...... of these trends is examined through a content analysis of 112 publicly available social media policies from the largest corporations in the world. The extent to which social media policies facilitate and/or constrain the communicative sensibilities and values associated with contemporary notions of CSR...... negotiation and participation in the social responsibilities of corporations. Moreover, policies generally enact organizational communication practices that are contrary to international CSR guidelines (e.g., the UN Global Compact and other international agreements). Findings suggest that social media...

Social Harmony Equation (SHE) leads the social system to the evolution direction of social by accumulation of “social combustion substances”, i.e., the accumulation of microcosmic entropy increase “basic particles” (individual) in social system from assimilated “basic social energy” to dissimilated one; meanwhile, the catalysis of “social combustion promoter” (social excitation energy) has enhanced the “social temperature” of disordering process of social system and completed the energy accumulation of social entropy increase that can generate the transition. Finally, ignited by the “social trigger threshold”, the social system has completed the abrupt change from orderliness to disorderliness. The continuous variation of the above-mentioned three basic non-linear processes has jointly composed the whole contents of social combustion theory. Under the restriction of such conditions of different time (t), different space (α) and different scale (β), it is finally explained as a comprehensive dynamics of social system deterioration.

Social capital is the social structure which facilitates the actions of individuals, stimulates production and allows for success. Poverty maintains basic needs unmet (food, health, autonomy) over time and unvoluntarily. Social exclusion does not allow individuals to participate in society. The following dimensions are assessed: financial poverty, social inclusion, employment, health and education. Social participation, work integration, empowerment, self-esteem, and personal achievement should be promoted. In Europe 15% of people is exposed to poverty; in Spain corresponding figures are 13.4%, while for the elderly reached 21%. Extreme poverty affects 6.2% population and severe poverty 14.2%. Women and those living in Andalusia, Canary Islands and Extremadura are particularly affected, health inequality are for elderly, immigration, gender, social class, and should be reduced 10% for 2010. The Gini indez measures the income distribution; in the European Union (EU) it is 0.29 while in Spain is 0.33. Poverty and health are inversely correlated, health care expenditure in Spain is 7.5% og GDP. Life expectancy in U.E. is 75.5 years for men and 81.6 years for women, while in Spain it is 78 and 83.1 respectively. Infant mortality in EU is 4.5/1000, 4.1 per thousand in Spain. Lastly, the number of children per women in EU is 1.47 and in Spain 1.3. PMID:15553403

Full Text Available Background: The fields of demography, sociology, and socio-psychology have been increasingly drawing on social network theories, which posit that individual fertility decision-making depends in part on the fertility behavior of other members of the population, and on the structure of the interactions between individuals. After reviewing this literature, we highlight the benefits of taking a social network perspective on fertility and family research. Objective: We review the literature that addresses the extent to which social mechanisms, such as social learning, social pressure, social contagion, and social support, influence childbearing decisions. Methods: We review the most recent contributions of the social networks approach for the explanation of fertility dynamics in contemporary post-industrial societies. Conclusions: We find that all of the social mechanisms reviewed influence the beliefs and norms individuals hold regarding childbearing, their perceptions of having children, and the context of opportunities and constraints in which childbearing choices are made. The actual impact of these mechanisms on fertility tempo and quantum strongly depends on the structure of social interaction.

This review examines 4 possible causal links between social mobility and fertility: 1) fertility affects social mobility; 2) social mobility affects fertility; 3) fertility and social mobility simultaneously affect each other; and 4) social mobility and fertility are unrelated. Due to the lack of systematic theory guiding the research, conceptualizations and measures of social mobility and fertility vary markedly from study to study, leading to inconsistent findings. The review focuses on theoretical perspectives underpinning the research, causal operators proposed to interpret observed associations, and analytical methods used. The selectivity perspective is based on the contention that a family must be small in order to rise on the social scale. This has found little support, however. In fact, studies suggest that children induce slightly higher levels of status achievement and family responsibilities may stimulate the energy and ambition of some so that they achieve more than they would have done without a family. Most studies have concerned the hypothesis that social mobility affects fertility. 4 theoretical perspectives have emerged: status enhancement; relative economic status; social isolation; and stress and disorientation. At any time in a couple's reproductive life cycle the decision or actual experience of either social mobility or fertility may influence the decision or actual experience of the other variable. Mobility-fertility research has defined an individual's or couple's position in terms of income, education, or occupation with occupation used most often as a single index of social class and indexes of social mobility developed by comparing persons' changes in occupational position. A common theme in much of the research literature is that the existence of an effect of social mobility on fertility depends on the societal conditions of a given population. Most studies through the mid-60s used a common measurement method to assess whether a

Full Text Available Over the past decade, social media platforms have penetrated deeply into the mechanics of everyday life, affecting people's informal interactions, as well as institutional structures and professional routines. Far from being neutral platforms for everyone, social media have changed the conditions and rules of social interaction. In this article, we examine the intricate dynamic between social media platforms, mass media, users, and social institutions by calling attention to social media logic—the norms, strategies, mechanisms, and economies—underpinning its dynamics. This logic will be considered in light of what has been identified as mass media logic, which has helped spread the media's powerful discourse outside its institutional boundaries. Theorizing social media logic, we identify four grounding principles—programmability, popularity, connectivity, and datafication—and argue that these principles become increasingly entangled with mass media logic. The logic of social media, rooted in these grounding principles and strategies, is gradually invading all areas of public life. Besides print news and broadcasting, it also affects law and order, social activism, politics, and so forth. Therefore, its sustaining logic and widespread dissemination deserve to be scrutinized in detail in order to better understand its impact in various domains. Concentrating on the tactics and strategies at work in social media logic, we reassess the constellation of power relationships in which social practices unfold, raising questions such as: How does social media logic modify or enhance existing mass media logic? And how is this new media logic exported beyond the boundaries of (social or mass media proper? The underlying principles, tactics, and strategies may be relatively simple to identify, but it is much harder to map the complex connections between platforms that distribute this logic: users that employ them, technologies that

Calls to deepen levels of social accountability within social protection interventions need to be informed by the now extensive experience of promoting social accountability in developing countries. Drawing on a systematic review of over 90 social accountability interventions, including some involving social protection, this paper shows that politics and context are critical to shaping their success. We argue that the politics of social protection and of social accountability resonate strongl...

In this work, we formulate the problem of social network integration. It takes multiple observed social networks as input and returns an integrated global social graph where each node corresponds to a real person. The key challenge for social network integration is to discover the correspondences or interlinks across different social networks. We engaged an in-depth analysis across three online social networks, AMiner, Linkedin, and Videolectures in order to address what reveals users' social...
This brief presents research results on social cognitive radio networks, a transformational and innovative networking paradigm that promotes the nexus between social interactions and cognitive radio networks. Along with a review of the research literature, the text examines the key motivation and challenges of social cognitive radio network design. Three socially inspired distributed spectrum sharing mechanisms are introduced: adaptive channel recommendation mechanism, imitation-based social spectrum sharing mechanism, and evolutionarily stable spectrum access mechanism. The brief concludes with a discussion of future research directions which ascertains that exploiting social interactions for distributed spectrum sharing will advance the state-of-the-art of cognitive radio network design, spur a new line of thinking for future wireless networks, and enable novel wireless service and applications.
