SOC483Y1 Diana Vaughan and Gilbert
We accept so much without really thinking about it
These are automatic processes
Automatic and believing the same according to Gilbert
Dewey similar to Mead philosophy made same comment that accepting and believing
are the same processes when we think about believing it is not believing in having
certain beliefs but believing in the sense of if I accept it is snowing I know it is snowing
Rejecting it cognitively is harder
Makes sense one would perceive in comprehension hard to think of perception
happening in two stages where first comprehend then accept…
Evolution of kids- denial/rejection
Marked and unmarked words- comes from linguistics, sometimes used in cognitive
sociology- those words that are neutral in value meaning. Ask- how old are you not how
young are you that is a marked word
Positive and Negative different from marked and unmarked- unmarked is neutral, has zero
value
World structure- basic level concepts- perceive
Garfinkle how we make meaning in certain locations, had students go home and
challenge people get really mad when you ask what do you mean by ‘how’? – show
great dialogue because a lot of parents gets mad thinking kids are criticizing or being
sarcastic
There is a lot of taken for granted in ‚how are you‛
The uncoupling is easy to understand, can relate
Vaughan only started to work on the third as it was a little fuzzier
The third case for Vaughan is connected to Cerullo, - thinking of organizational and
institutional factors that help with foresight, under certain conditions people can only
prepare for negative according to Cerullo while only in certain professions people can
train for negative. That connects to Vaughan as certain elements are given of air flight
attendants as they do not miss signals whereas NASA did and couples do
Situations where someone saw it coming while others did not see it coming…
Vaughan makes a good case for understanding couples sociologically to explain why and
how that can differ so much uncouple in misery with this persuasive explanation
We will read more organizational theory about cognition and culture
Vaughan gets us thinking about organizational theory and does it in a very structured way
organizational and environmental factors
Swidler- talk of love and some on institutions and organizations
Afterwards all organizational
Air traffic controllers different from others- connect this to Cerullo some way why people
miss signals
No ambiguity in air traffic control
Swidler males we rely on different cultural codes when in relationship, being in couple
and or individual freedom- initator may have moved from relying on the script how
people who want to stay In marriage grapple with competeing scripts and inherently
intentional scripts
Short term vs. long term short term for air traffic controllers which makes a different for
air traffic controllers- so in a relationship which is long term we may not be thinking ever

Short term vs. long term short term for air traffic controllers which makes a different for
air traffic controllers- so in a relationship which is long term we may not be thinking every
hour of preventing break up it is not usually an every hour thought process
Use of common sense and intuition more so in air traffic controller- but in NAsa which
became more bureaucratized air traffic controllers taught to rely on intuition
Look out for idea of tool kit, cultural repertoire, she will be revisiting ideas of
understandings of culture- Geertz, get started on thinking on how organizations and
institutions bound or give frame to culture and cognition and how that is important for us
to consider to understand how culture and cognition work … .
Dear Dale Lastman,
I would like to thank you for the opportunity to contact you. I am very fortunate for this
opportunity and would be delighted to meet with you. I thought that it may be helpful to
share the personal statement that I submitted to Osgoode with you as an introduction.
