Evolution, Kultur und Kriminalitat: Uber den Beitrag der by Christian Laue

By Christian Laue

Nach den furchtbaren Erfahrungen mit der Kriminalbiologie hat die Kriminologie in der zweiten Hälfte des 20. Jahrhunderts die Biowissenschaften systematisch aus ihrem Gedankengebäude verbannt. Die enormen Wissensfortschritte der Biologie wurden nicht zur Kenntnis genommen oder gar integriert. Das vorliegende Buch überbrückt den Graben zwischen sozialwissenschaftlich orientierter Kriminologie und den Biowissenschaften. Untersucht wird, in wie weit neue Erkenntnisse aus der Evolutionsbiologie den kriminologischen Erkenntnisstand bereichern können. Die Evolutionsbiologie gilt einerseits vielen als Königsdisziplin der Biologie, andererseits wird sie von manchen Sozialwissenschaftlern vor allem mit Eugenik, Sozialdarwinismus und Rassismus in Verbindung gebracht. Tatsächlich ergeben sich aus der Evolutionstheorie zahlreiche neue Aufschlüsse über kriminologisch interessante Fragestellungen.

Game Theory and Postwar American Literature by Michael Wainwright

By Michael Wainwright

If online game concept, the mathematical simulation of rational decision-making first axiomatically tested through the Hungarian-born American mathematician John von Neumann, is to turn out important of literary hermeneutics, then critics needs to be in a position to observe its types to texts written with no operating wisdom of von Neumann's self-discipline in brain. studying such iconic novels as Fahrenheit 451, In chilly Blood, and Kiss the following day so long from the viewpoint of the 4 most often encountered coordination difficulties - the Stag Hunt, the Prisoner's quandary, bird, and impasse, online game idea and Postwar American Literature illustrates the numerous contribution of mathematical types to literary interpretation. The interdisciplinary procedure of this publication contributes to an realizing of the historic, political, and social contexts that encompass the texts produced within the post-Cold struggle years, in addition to supplying a finished version of becoming a member of online game idea and literary criticism.
