, Max Shulman, the creator of "The Many Loves of Dobie Gillis", created and named Maynard G. Krebs. Is there any reason to doubt that and believe that Ivy League disinfoteers are the real namers?
Yes, there is reason to doubt that Shulman originated the name "Krebs."
Did someone else give it to him?
Don Knotts said in an interview that the producer of 'The Incredible Mr. Limpet' told him it was an idea he'd kicked around for years. And that wasn't true. It was a direct reaction to US divers getting put on trial in Hanoi for terrorism and harassment called Operation Vulcan. Bet you'll find a cover story for how 'Vulcan' came to be on Star Trek as a "fascinating" new culture to American kids, too.
No, my covert context for the names is much stronger than unconfirmed say-so second-hand, especially with the Don Knotts example I cited.
Related, I found a copy of 'The Patsy' and I see why it was made.
I am positive that Lewis was asked to do it For the Country and he saluted.
But, typically, he was given a rationale that was benign without telling him that
the project was also useful a decoy for the idea 'patsy.'
'The Patsy' is a parable about 'gathering together in face of sadness and moving on' complete with a Jackie Kennedy romantic figure he has a crush on saying soothing things to Jerry Lewis like "sometimes the things that make us who we are are not all happy things."
I stopped 'The Patsy' half way through where there is a dream sequence of Jerry Lewis dancing with the romantic Jackie Kennedy figure in a school gymnasium. Lewis is in a suit and she is in a pink dress with pink head band-the image of Mr. and Mrs. President on 11/22/63, just weeks before filming was started on 'The Patsy.' The two dancers stop in the middle of the gym floor right on some basketball court lines that look exactly like a bullseye.
I stopped the video there for now.
That biography you link to suggests that Gilligan only began studying those topics which "Gilligan's Island" was supposed to hijack well after the show was cancelled. Her curriculum vitae [pdf]
shows that she published two papers on "delay of gratification" and "responses to temptation" in 1964 and didn't publish any more papers until 1970 when she started working with Lawrence Kohlberg.
Don't just go by paper publishing dates. And even those confirm what I wrote.
She was causing trouble for patriarchal recruiting as early as 1960.She was published in 1964 as co-author of a paper in the CIA's own MKULTRA platform, 'Journal of Abnormal and Social Psychology'-!!!!
Look at page 5 of her cv- papers on "delayed gratification" or why youth choose to enlist or not.
Look at her 1964 papers.
AND SHE DID BECOME JUST THE SUPERSTAR THEY FEARED.
But just say "Gilligan" and you get 'the picture' because of that stupid TV show.
Say it in academic circles and you will get a reaction more akin to the reaction to 'Freud' or 'Erikson' or 'Piaget.'http://www.uwsp.edu/Education/pshaw/TheoriesofLearning.htm
Theories of Moral Development
Gilligan's Theory: Gilligan argues that females are socialized to stress interpersonal relationships to take responsibility for the well-being of others to a greater extent than males. (#2, pg. 103)
Kohlberg's Theory: Kohlberg believes that moral development is based on three different levels; these levels represent the perspectives people take as the wrestle moral dilemmas. The three levels include: preconventional morality, conventional morality, and post conventional morality. (#2, pg. 98)
Piaget’s Stages of Moral Development: There are two general stages of moral development: heterononmy (e.g., right and wrong are based on personal consequences) and autonomy (e.g., decisions where the volition or free will of the child takes over from the previous outside authority). *Recognized the role of cognition in moral development. (#4, pg. 164)
Theory of Mind: The ability to understand our own and others’ thoughts, emotions, and intentions. (#4, pg. 138)
Confirmation? Hell, yes. She was big and became bigger.
It seems she didn't become groundbreaking until the early eighties. Why would the CIA hijack a fresh Ph. D. who only had an unpublished dissertation and one published paper to her name?
She was a star from the very beginning of her academic career and was PRE-EMPTED when she hit a dangerous threshold within her field. Her work was being accepted, published, and she was working with THE superstar, Erik Erikson, who has the status of Freud in his field.
