7 Unofficial work cultures
In this unit, we are going to look at a number of situations which put a strain on the idea that caring is just 'being ordinary', including times when people are giving intimate care. In these special circumstances, since the normal rules do not apply, we have to develop a set of special rules to guide practice.
21H.991J Theories and Methods in the Study of History (MIT)
The purpose of this course is to acquaint you with a variety of approaches to the past used by historians writing in the twentieth century. Most of the books on the list constitute, in my view (and others), modern classics, or potential classics, in social, economic and cultural history. We will examine how historians conceive of their object of study, how they use primary sources as a basis for their accounts, how they structure the narrative and analytic discussion of their topic, and what are
Quantitative models for early prediction of software development success: a practitioner’s perspec
This study investigated some of the early non-technical components of the software development process from the perspective of project success. The causal relationships among these components, as well as their relationship to software practitionersâ overall perception of project success, were depicted through a Bayesian Belief Network. Components related to sponsor/management, customer/users and requirements management. Data was gathered through a survey of practitioners. This research is imp
National Security and Intellectual Freedom

21H.433 The Age of Reason: Europe in the 18th and 19th Centuries (MIT)
Has there ever been an "Age of Reason?" In the western tradition, one might make claims for various moments during Antiquity, the Middle Ages, and the Renaissance. In this class, however, we will focus on the two and a half centuries between 1600 and 1850, a period when insights first developed in the natural sciences and mathematics were seized upon by social theorists, institutional reformers and political revolutionaries who sought to change themselves and the society in which they lived.

2.2 Why fertilization may not happen It is estimated by most practitioners that more than 50% of all conceptions are genetically abnormal, and it has been suggested that this results in part from the fertilizing of old eggs. Of course, good maternal health and adequate nutrition are also important for the production of good eggs. To maximize the chance of healthy offspring, perhaps intercourse should be timed so that sperm are present as soon as the egg is ovulated. But, as you have seen for practitioners of natural methods of c

21H.346 France 1660-1815: Enlightenment, Revolution, Napoleon (MIT)
A century and a half ago, Alexis de Tocqueville argued that the Revolution of 1789 in France constituted the culmination of long-term administrative and social changes, rather than a rupture with the past. In this class, we will consider that Tocquevillian insight by examining four aspects of French experience from the reign of the Sun King, Louis XIV, to the rule of the Emperor Napoléon Bonaparte: Absolutism, Enlightenment, Revolution, and Empire. Through the study of primary and secondary sou
