Influence of ressentiment on student experience in secondary school by Carl Nordstrom( Book )

3 editions published in 1965 in English and held by 59 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The influence of attitudes of "ressentiment" on secondary schools and their students was assessed. (The term "ressentiment" was used to refer to a kind of free-floating ill-temper that is part of the syndrome produced by hostility repressed over long periods of adult life, and which is characterized by feelings of severe and pervasive impotence and a high degree of emotional constriction.) It was hypothesized that public education is one of the social institutions most strongly affected by "ressentiment", and that this is a major factor in making it hostile to creative youngsters and their potential gifts. Several hundred students from public and independent schools were administered numerous items designed to locate and describe the effects of "ressentiment" practices and attitudes. The resulting data were used for placing the majority of the participants into two broad, residual categories--(1) the "conventionals," or those students who generally accept the conventions of their institution and exhibit behavior patterns indicative of resignation, and (2) the "adolescents," or those whose primary concern is with the meaning of their own identity as they develop in the school setting. Based on these categorical characteristics, it was possible to determine, to a limited extent, the predominance of "ressentiment" in the particular schools surveyed. (Jh)
Why successful students of the natural sciences abandon careers in science by Carl Nordstrom( Book )

4 editions published in 1961 in English and held by 47 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study investigated experiences, perceptions, and expectations of scientists who abandon science careers. A card sort was given to 45 college seniors and recent graduates who had changed their field of specialization from one to the natural sciences to the humanities or social sciences. The subjects sorted the cards according to conventional forced-choice directions into a symmetrical 1-3-7-10-7-3-1 distribution, ranging from the card bearing the one best piece of advice to that bearing the most misleading piece of advice. Following the card-sort, each subject was asked to discuss the reasons for selecting each of the four cards he had placed in the positive end and in the negative end of his distribution. It was found that most of the students who left the sciences for other disciplines were concerned with personal self-integration and the maintenance of a healthy spirit of inquiry, leaving only a small number of science majors who had concerns similar to the significant group of those who had left. Further study is recommended to find ways in which potentially creative scientists whould be salvaged. (Jl)
