Sherlock Holmes Meets Othello: A MDS Analysis of Literary Characters.
Russell, G. W.; Lambert, W. B.
British Journal of Educational Psychology, v50 pt3 p277-88 Nov 1980
Changes in college freshmen's perceptual organization of characters from "Othello" after three weeks of study and lecture were assessed using multidimensional scaling procedures. Sherlock Holmes experts also provided dissimilarity ratings of Conan Doyle's characters. Discussion centers on the extent to which the lectures on "Othello" effected changes in students' attitudes.
