1. Kira, Ibrahim. Human Values : A Conceptual Model for the Dynamics of Value Processing.

Degree: 1987, California State University – East Bay

There are two main approaches in studying human values: the macro-global approach and the micro or individual approach. Within the first approach there are three major models. The first views values as absolute universals that should be: the second views values as the actual relative patterns of behavior: and the third scales values to natural self-actualizing, modern or urban humans. Within the micro-approach, there are four models. The first places more focus on the affective psycho-dynamic part of values: the second views values as cognitive representations. The decision making model views values as independent dimensions which guide decisions, and the action model reveals the built-in discrepancy between the espoused values and values in use. Most of these models lack the dynamic and the comprehensive perspective which combines the micro and macro analytic levels. The alternative model proposed in this thesis suggests three levels for rediscovering value dynamics and four approaches to measure them. The first level is the signification process that triggers global activation spreadings with intensity equal to the significance of the perceived object to the individual's survival and growth values or their derivatives. There are three kinds of signification: object-signification, values-signification, and self-signification. Self-signification is the core of valuation dynamics at this level and the source of valuepathy and psychological health. The second level in addressing value dynamics may be performed by analyzing the value system as self programming mechanisms. Values and their derivatives, which are the reference criteria in the signification process, are materialized in micro, or intrasystem, and macro, or inter-system, programming. On the micro-processing level there are two kinds of dynamic processes: the valuative states formation, like anticipation and familiarity and their specific derivatives, such as attitudes, preferences, and likings. The second is the value programming and packaging mechanisms. Within these packaging mechanisms there are different kinds of internal processing subroutines and algorithms. Within these programming mechanisms there are two kinds of statements: declarative, or non-executable, statements, which are these kinds of abstract universal values, and executable, or command, statements, which are either negative or positive, imperative or conditional self-orders. At this level, values are selfprescriptive programs and algorithms that function to secure a base line of readiness for effective coping. The third level of addressing value dynamics is the level of real time macro-processing. The individual develops through significating and coping to outside events his network of automated and non-automated personal survival and growth strategies which are dependent on both his valuative competencies and environmental availabilities. Flexibility, which is characterized by the selectivity syndrome inherent in it, is the source of… Advisors/Committee Members: Okamoto, Yukari (advisor), Brown, Dr. Donald (primaryAdvisor).
