    Tanto cr├şticos quanto f├ús t├¬m tradicionalmente encarado a m├║sica popular, especialmente em termos de suas intera├ž├Áes de rock ┬┤n┬┤ roll, como um recurso de significado da juventude navegando ao longo da adolesc├¬ncia. O objetivo deste artigo ├ę discutir a relev├óncia da m├║sica popular para a auto-identidade ao longo da meia-idade e adiante. A base te├│rica para esta discuss├úo ├ę uma s├şntese de id├ęias sobre envelhecimento a partir do existencialismo e do interacionismo simb├│lico. O pensamento social existencial nos diz que o processo de auto-desenvolvimento ├ę uma constante ao longo da vida. O que muda s├úo circunst├óncias da vida, o processo de idade biol├│gica e afetiva, reavalia├ž├úo do passado e rela├ž├Áes estrat├ęgicas com os outros. A gera├ž├úo "baby boomer" foi a primeira gera├ž├úo ocidental a crescer inteiramente no mundo da m├║sica e da cultura do rock ┬┤n┬┤ roll, e muitos baby boomers vivenciaram o rock ┬┤n┬┤ roll como roteiro padr├úo para a vida. Por isso, esta fonte cultural altamente auto-integrativa, refor├žada pelo poder dos meios de comunica├ž├úo de massa, continua a ser central para a auto-identidade de muitos baby-boomers idosos mant├ęm o rock ┬┤n┬┤ roll em suas vidas, com um interesse profundo pela autenticidade da sua m├║sica. Exemplos incluem a compra e execu├ž├úo de r├ídio por sat├ęlite e outras tecnologias que refor├žam o status; o uso de m├║sica rock para cultivar romantismo e intimidade; apre├žo pela m├║sica pop em atividades religiosas e durante experi├¬ncias espirituais; o uso do rock para expressar temas pol├şticos e ser av├┤s por interm├ędio de Hannah Montan

    The Everyday Life Intersection of Translational Science and Music

    The purpose of this paper is to discuss the theoretical relationship between translational science and music. The relationship between science and music has been of great interest to philosophers, historians, and musicologists for centuries. From a sociological perspective, we argue that science and music are closely linked at the level of everyday life in contemporary biomedical science. Translational science is a scientific movement that aims to facilitate the efficient application of bio-medical research to the design and delivery of clinical services, and a qualitative approach inspired by symbolic interactionism provides the opportunity to examine the place of the scientist in this movement. The concept of the existential self provides a useful platform for this examination insofar as the reflexive nature of the existential self is the way the personÔÇÖs experience of individuality is affected by and in turn affects organizational change. An ongoing qualitative study of an NIH-funded program in translational science has found that music can serve to help scientists maintain a balanced self in light of new expectations placed upon them and their work. We identify six ways in which scientists can use music to enhance their sense of self and their work

    "I'm just as Rock 'n' Roll fan". Popular music as a meaning resource for aging

    Critics and fans alike have traditionally viewed popular music, especially in terms of its rock'n'roll iterations, as a meaning resource for youth navigating through adolescence. The purpose of this paper is to discuss the relevance of popular music for self-identity through middle age and beyond. The theoretical basis for this exploration is a composite of ideas from existential social thought and symbolic interactionist views on aging. Existential social thought tells us that the process of self-development is constant throughout life. What changes are life circumstances, the biological and affective aging process, reassessment of the past, and strategic relationships with others. The baby boomer generation was the first western generation to grow up entirely in the world of rock 'n' roll music and culture, and many baby boomers experienced rock 'n' roll as a master script for life. Therefore, this highly self-integrated cultural resource, enhanced by the power of the mass media, remains central to the self-identity of many baby boomers as they approach old age. The author investigates the variety of ways aging baby boomers keep rock 'n'roll in their lives, with a pervasive interest in the authenticity of their music. Examples include the purchase and display of satellite radio and other status-enhancing technology; the use of rock 'n' roll music to nurture romance and intimacy; appreciation for pop music at religious services and during spiritual experiences; the use of rock 'n' roll to make sense of political issues, and grandparenting-through-Hannah Montana

    Managing the problem pain patient: Compliance or social control?

    No full text
    This paper explores the usefulness of a social control perspective for the analysis of the everyday medical management of problem pain patients. The popular, social-psychologically based, patient-compliance model is founded on certain assumptions which limit applicability to pain patient-practitioner interaction. A social control model is proposed to account for the moral and social construction of the problem pain patient. Data are presented from studies of pain management seminars and the patient screening process in a comprehensive pain treatment center to illustrate how this moral and social construction is accomplished.
