1. Identify some “repeatable” event and describe it first as you would describe it in normal, common sense terms. Bergson uses many examples in the text, such as a shooting star, waving one’s arm with eyes closed, a melody, etc. Don’t simply copy one of his examples or one almost identical to them; try to choose a case with some element of novelty. Choose a repeatable one so that you can examine the corresponding experience repeatably (although, of course, Bergson maintains that the corresponding experiences are not exactly repetitions—don’t worry about this in this assignment!).
2. Next, try to describe the experience of this event using Bergson’s conceptualizations, as appropriate. You will want to make reference at least to space, objective time, and duration, but other distinctions and concepts may be relevant. You should focus only on the content in “The Idea of Duration”, although it is acceptable to make use of the week 2 and 3 reading if you wish.
3. Finally, briefly describe what you find difficult about thinking “with” Bergson through your example.
- Discuss an example where optimal (or improved) organization design resulted in greater functional effectiveness and productivity of an organization.
- Explain your understanding of hypothesis testing and the Type 1 and Type 2 errors.
- Looking more specifically at slope, what are two ways it can be applied in the workplace or
- Consider how you feel about the following issues: Respecting the wishes of a suffering client that he is permitted to die with dignity
- What is your vision for the future of nursing?
- How can science fiction stories like Binti relate to our current climate?
- Write a Briefing Paper describing the formal organization of the adopted agency.
- What measure of central tendency is most appropriate for describing this set of data and why?
- Consider the ideas of liberty and equality expressed in the Declaration of Independence and the preamble to the US constitution. Evaluate the work of the work of the reconstruction era to apply these principles.
- How could nurses make a profound impact on the care of this vulnerable population?
- Discuss “the danger of playing it safe” by Wendy kaminer.
