BALINT ON LISTSERV@SJUVM.STJOHNS.EDU - Medico-patient relationships

BALINT is a moderated discussion list meant for physicians
and psychoanalysts engaged in dealing with the multifarious
problems engendered in the course of the medical treatment
of hospitalized patients; problems generally related to
the complex interactions between the medical staff, the
patient and the hospital.
Balint groups first emerged in England in the 1950s in an
attempt to apply psychoanalysis to the medico-patient
relationship. Several clinicians grouped together under
the coordination of a psychoanalyst to discuss why
psychological issues raised by the patient tended to be
ignored by psychologically untrained physicians, thus
stagnating the patient's condition and thereby preventing
er/his improvement. A multidsciplinary framework is
fostered with the aim of integrating the sense of a
mind-body split, so unfortunately pervasive in current
medical practice.

The BALINT mailing list for discussions on medico-
patient relationships, a multidisciplinary approach to
assess the patient's condition in order to integrate the
various interactions extant between the patient, her/his
illness, her/his family, her/his doctor, the hospital and the
society at large, welcomes contributions from medical doctors,
psychoanalysts, psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers,
as well as the various auxiliary professionals with a
commitment to humanize present-day hi-tech medicine; either
from a purely academic viewpoint or as a means radically to
modify current patterns of human relationships within the
definite field of medical practice.

SOCIOBIO is a moderated discussion list dealing with
the biological bases of the social behaviour of animals,
such as aggression, territoriality, social systems, and
mate selection. Sociobiology seeks to extend the concept
of natural selection to social systems and social
behaviour of animals, including humans.

Although the term sociobiology is of recent coinage,
the problems the discipline seeks to resolve have been
recognized for many years. Indeed, in the 19th century
the main founder of evolutionary theory, Charles Darwin,
had already attempted to deal with the question of altruism.
The first major advance in understanding altruism came
around 1960 when British biologist W. D. Hamilton developed
the concept of kin selection.

The SOCIOBIO mailing list for discussions on the evolution
of social behaviour welcomes contributions from scholars
currently engaged in any kind of research project linked
with the issues of socialization, altruism, and animal

It has often been stressed that altruism often occurs in
the absence of close genetic relatedness; that is, it can
involve other than direct kin; as, for instance, is shown
in Trivers' concept of reciprocal altruism.

Moreover, J. Maynard Smith has shown how reciprocal
altruism can evolve in a species that is completely selfish
at the outset, and that such altruism can lead to higher
reproductive success. These various theories and
supporting data were brought together by the American
biologist E. O. Wilson in Sociobiology: The New Synthesis,
a book that has become the cornerstone of sociobiology as
a distinct field of study.

Subject: Call for papers


for a special issue of _COMPUTERS AND THE HUMANITIES_ on

|The Use of Computers in the Teaching of Literature|

and for an anthology on the same topic.

For this special issue of _Computers and the Humanities_, papers should
describe and analyze the use of computer technology in teaching
literature. How are teachers incorporating computer use, both in and out
of the classroom, into curricula, classes, individual lessons? How, for
example, are teachers using on-line or CD-ROM editions of texts? Having
students use CD-ROM and Internet resources as research tools? Using
on-line discussion of and response to texts? Using hypermedia as a
teaching tool? Creating and applying literature-related instructional
software? And what uses of computer technology have particularly
succeeded? Or failed? And why? Papers should focus primarily on
classroom and course-related applications of computer technology. Papers
that relate classroom applications of computer technology to particular
theoretical concerns are also welcome.

The same description applies for submissions for the anthology.

Deadlines: for the special issue of _Computers and the Humanities_,
full papers should be submitted for consideration by
*November 30, 1995*.

For the anthology, inquiries and/or proposals of 2 pages in
length by December 1, 1995; full papers by March 1, 1996.

Papers for both the special issue of _Computers and the Humanities_ and
the anthology should be sent to

Submission guidelines available at the same addresses.
