The generalized other is a concept used in the social sciences, especially in a field called symbolic interactionism.
It is the general notion that a person has of the common expectations that others have about actions and thoughts within a particular society.
Generalized other – George Herbert Mead maintained that the experience of role-play and pretence in early childhood were vital for the formation of a mature sense of self, which may only be achieved by the child learning to take on the role of the other, i.e., seeing things from another person’s perspective.

Anthropology is distinguished from other social-science disciplines by its emphasis on cultural relativity, in-depth examination of context, and cross-cultural comparisons.
Like other scholars of his day (such as Edward Tylor), Morgan argued that human societies could be classified into categories of cultural evolution on a scale of progression that ranged from savagery, to barbarism, to civilization.
Other influential writers in the 1970s include Pierre Clastres, who explains in his books on the Guayaki tribe in Paraguay that "primitive societies" actively oppose the institution of the state.

Significant features of the reported epidemic are (1) the large numbers of patients with a disease that usually occurs as isolated cases or small clusters, (2) the mildness of the disease in all patients, (3) the absence of invasive forms of the disease and scarlatiniform eruption, and (5) the high incidence of localized exfoliation.

 Generalized Quantifiers (Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy)
Generalized quantifiers are now standard equipment in the toolboxes of both logicians and linguists.
The term “generalized quantifier” reflects that these entities were introduced in logic as generalizations of the standard quantifiers of modern logic, ∀ and ∃.
The circumstance that the syllogistic format in itself is too weak to express interesting pieces of reasoning, and that generations of philosophers nonetheless mechanically continued to present it as the essence of logic far into the 20th century, should not obscure the fact that Aristotle's logic is a decisive contribution to the study of quantification.

In playing and gaming, as in linguistic activity, the key to the generation of self-consciousness is the process of role-playing." In play, the child takes the role of another and acts as though she were the other (e.g., mother, doctor, nurse, Indian, and countless other symbolized roles).
The generalized other is "an organized and generalized attitude" (Mind, Self and Society 195) with reference to which the individual defines her own conduct.
There are, it would appear, two phases (or poles) of the self: (1) that phase which reflects the attitude of the generalized other and (2) that phase which responds to the attitude of the generalized other.

 Generalized Anxiety Disorder Treatment for Anxiety Disorders and Anxiety Attacks without Panic Room   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-09)
Early on, I was told by several psychologists that those suffering from anxiety disorders, anxiety attacks, and generalized anxiety disorders were irresponsible individuals and used their anxiety for secondary gain, in other words get out of something like test taking, going someplace uncomfortable, seeing someone they didn't want to, chores...
I've since learned that those psychologists were "full of it." Fact is, that those suffering from anxiety disorders, generalized anxiety disorder and anxiety attacks are really very responsible individuals--the type of person I'd want working for me. In fact, it's their responsible nature that determines how they react to stress with anxiety disorders.
Any successful program in dealing with those suffering from anxiety attacks, generalized anxiety disorder, and anxiety disorders must address the responsible nature of the individual to provide options for them in their everyday duties and relationships.

If this is not possible, consider weighting the scoring rubric to give advantage to projects that seek to replicate a model shown by research to be effective.
The more the projects you fund have in common, the more able you will be to define common goals and measures, and the more able you will be to interpret the results across projects and obtain outcomes that can be generalized beyond the original context.
Generally accepted wisdom tells us that if you do a large-scale randomized study with a large sample group, the results are more "generalizable." However, since this is unrealistic for most districts, a more practical approach would be to pursue small-scale studies in targeted populations.

 Dr. Dobb's | Generalizing Observer | July 29, 2003
In brief, the function facility provides a generalized way of working with arbitrary functions when all you know (or need to know) is their signature.
Along the way, I hope to persuade you that Observer (and other patterns like it) compellingly demonstrates not only the usefulness of function, but also why function itself should be further generalized beyond its current state in the draft standard library technical report.
It demonstrates a generalized Observer that does not require a monolithic hierarchy rooted at an Observer base class, but the solution still has the drawbacks of being unable to ignore duplicates or detach specific observers by value (it uses the cookie/iterator workaround for the latter).
