    The Application of Feed - Forward Neural Network Architecture for Improving Energy Efficiency.Delia Balacian, Denisa Maria Melian & Stelian Stancu - 2023 - Postmodern Openings 14 (2):1-17.
    The energy sector contributes approximately two-thirds of global greenhouse gas emissions. In this context, the sector must adapt to new supply and demand networks for all future energy sources. The ongoing transformation in the European energy field is driven by the ambition of the European Union to reach the climate objectives set for 2030. The main actions are increasing renewable energy production, adapting transition fuels like natural gas to reduce emissions, improving energy efficiency across all economic sectors, prioritizing building, transportation, (...)

    Social Construction of Organization. A New model in Organizational Development.Alexandra Damaschin - 2023 - Postmodern Openings 14 (2):39-55.
    The paper brings into discussion the social construction of organization and proposes a new model in organizational development. The paper begins with a synthesis on the paradigm of social constructionism, emphasizing its utility in organizational studies. In times of uncertainty and rapid changes, a lot of organizations lose their missions and meanings, or have the capacity to reinvent and to thrive. The question is what makes the difference? In this line, the paper proposes a theoretical model, gathering the social constructionism, (...)

    Restructuring Cultural Practices in Transnational Families.Rarita Mihail - 2023 - Postmodern Openings 14 (2):18-30.
    Migration is one of the social processes that have influenced and are still deeply influencing current Romanian society, given that millions of Romanian citizens have relatives who had longer or shorter migration projects. Migration leads to socio-economic and cultural changes, which cause temporary or permanent changes in the human reality, the way of life and the personality of those who leave, but also of those who remain at home. Certainly, migration affects, first of all, the family, changing both its structure (...)

    Prozac-propelled Postmodern Poetry, Partly (I).Bogdan Pîrvu, Ioan Florin Diaconu & Vlad Ichim - 2023 - Postmodern Openings 14 (2):56-63.
    Quite fittingly derived from proficient and attack, coming onto the market in late 20-th century, being associated with protocol-abiding clinical psychiatry and gender-based postmodern discourse, Prozac is seen in what follows as a generic name for serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRI-s) and, under its various names, it is further associated with creativity or rather poetic input. While providing the sense of a postmodern notion of subjectivity, the case studies in support of our analysis are found to experience a restoration, even if (...)

    The Influence of the Motivational Factors on Work Performance.Alina Constantinescu & Ion Stegăroiu - 2023 - Postmodern Openings 14 (1):26-45.
    The employee motivation at the organizational level is naturally quantified in achieving performance goals. In this paper are studied the motivational factors from the perspective of employee work performance reflected, vertically, in the organizational performance and further in the macroeconomic performance. Using an empirical study in which the observed data were obtained through a survey conducted in this year among the Romanian employees, in this paper we validate three hypotheses that establish the association of employee performance, on the one hand (...)

    A New Method in Philosophical Counseling (IPAA).Adrian Hagiu, Sergiu Bortoș & Iosif Tamaș - 2023 - Postmodern Openings 14 (1):46-61.
    Starting from the four principles of Pólya's problem-solving method, by analogy, in this paper we propose a new method of philosophical counseling. Thus, the objectives of this study are as follows: the review of several methods of philosophical counseling; justifying the need for a new method, which we called the IPAA method; developing the four principles – the principle of identification (I), the principle of planification (P), the principle of application (A) and the principle of assumption (A). In order to (...)

    Sociocultural Practice in the Discourse of Creative Industries Development.Olha Kopiievska, Kateryna Haidukevych, Maryna Pashkevych, Maryna Kozlovska & Eugenia Korolenko - 2023 - Postmodern Openings 14 (1):01-15.
    The article examines examples of sociocultural practices in advertising and PR, music, cinema, gamification, tourism, and art. Analyzing the proposed topic, the dependence of transformation of sociocultural practices on technologization and informatization of society, on merging of different spheres of creative industries (on the example of advertising and content), and interdependence of society and the process of content creation were established. The sphere of “project activity” as a way of combining traditional and innovative foundations to improve and enrich culture, effectively (...)

    Participatory Democracy as the Ideal Context for Social Innovation. Evidence from the European Union.Mihnea Simion Stoica - 2023 - Postmodern Openings 14 (1):16-25.
    While innovation has evolved into a common concept for quite a few decades now, especially given the need for new forms of development that require technology transfer and creativity mechanisms, less so is the case of social innovation. The latter remains a rather controversial concept, caught between two extremes: some authors consider it to be useless for academic research given its vagueness, while others point to its sacrosanctity given the need for new ways of societal and political development. Knowledge-creation, idea (...)
