Abstract

During the Cold War, the systemic rivalry between East and West was also carried out in the field of scholarship. This volume examines the Academies of Sciences in Central Europe on either side of the Iron Curtain in the early stages of the Cold War (and in some cases beyond). These include academies in the Socialist states (the Slovenian Academy of Sciences and Arts, the Romanian People’s Republic Academy, the Hungarian Academy of Sciences, the Polish Academy of Sciences, the Czechoslovakian Academy of Sciences, and the Slovakian Academy of Sciences), academies in divided Germany (the German Academy of Sciences at Berlin [Academy of Sciences of the GDR], the Saxon Academy of Sciences, the Academy of Agricultural Sciences of the GDR, the Bavarian Academy of Sciences and Humanities, the Heidelberg Academy of Sciences and Humanities, and finally the Leopoldina in Halle/Saale as the all-German Academy of Sciences), and the Austrian Academy of Sciences.Der vorliegende Band ermöglicht erstmals einen vergleichenden Blick auf Akademien der Wissenschaften in Zentraleuropa im Kalten Krieg.Im Kalten Krieg wurde die Systemkonkurrenz zwischen Ost und West auch im Feld der Wissenschaften ausgetragen. Der Band thematisiert Akademien der Wissenschaften in Zentraleuropa diesseits und jenseits des Eisernen Vorhangs in der Zeit des frühen Kalten Krieges (und fallweise darüber hinaus). Vertreten sind Akademien in den sozialistischen Staaten (die Slowenische Akademie der Wissenschaften und Künste, die Akademie der Volksrepublik Rumänien, die Ungarische Akademie der Wissenschaften, die Polnische Akademie der Wissenschaften, die Tschechoslowakische Akademie der Wissenschaften und die Slowakische Akademie der Wissenschaften), Akademien der Wissenschaften im geteilten Deutschland (die Deutsche Akademie der Wissenschaften zu Berlin [Akademie der Wissenschaften der DDR], die Sächsische Akademie der Wissenschaften, die Akademie der Landwirtschaftswissenschaften der DDR, die Bayerische Akademie der Wissenschaften, die Heidelberger Akademie der Wissenschaften und schließlich die Leopoldina in Halle/Saale als gesamtdeutsche Akademie der Naturforscher) sowie die Österreichische Akademie der Wissenschaften.Die übergreifende Fragestellung richtet sich zum einen auf Kontinuitäten und Zäsuren innerhalb der Akademien, zum anderen auf Gemeinsamkeiten und Unterschiede zwischen ‚westlichem‘ und sozialistischem Akademiemodell, aber auch innerhalb des jeweiligen politischen Systems. Ausgangspunkt des Vergleichs ist das Maß an Eigenständigkeit und Unabhängigkeit, dass den Wissenschaftsakademien von Staat und Politik jeweils zugestanden wird.In einem einleitenden Kapitel werden die grundsätzlichen Unterschiede zwischen Akademien ,westlichen‘ und sozialistischen Typs aufgezeigt und analysiert. Eine markante Differenz zeigt sich bereits in zwei zentralen Aspekten: Während die ‚westlichen‘ Akademien – trotz Involvierung in den Nationalsozialismus – nach 1945 weitgehend bruchlos weitergeführt wurden, erfolgte in den sozialistischen Staaten eine Neugründung der Wissenschaftsakademien. Die Akademien sozialistischen Typs wurden bald zu groß angelegten Forschungsträgern ausgebaut, während die ,westlichen‘ Akademien reine Gelehrtengesellschaften blieben. Eine Zwischenposition zwischen diesen beiden Modellen nimmt die Österreichische Akademie der Wissenschaften (ÖAW) ein.Die Einleitung der Herausgeber und der Beitrag von Mitchell Ash bilden einen fundierten Rahmen für die insgesamt 15 Beiträge namhafter Wissenschaftshistorikerinnen. Eine Schlussbetrachtung von Herbert Matis und Arnold Suppan verortet die Einzelbeiträge vor dem Hintergrund der politischen Transformationen in Zentraleuropa im Kalten Krieg. Der Band präsentiert neue Ergebnisse des von der ÖAW initiierten Forschungsnetzwerks zur Geschichte der Akademien der Wissenschaften in Europa im 19. und 20. Jahrhundert. In diesem Band werden vielfach erstmals Forschungsergebnisse zu ostmitteleuropäischen Akademien im K

Abstract

Sporting and sport psychological accomplishments are an important part of Scandinavian culture. Psychological factors have been demonstrated to have a major impact on both participation and achievements in sport. Sport psychology is about precisely these factors. The diversity of sport psychology research in Scandinavia is presented for the first time in this scholarly volume. Contributors from key sport psychology research teams in Sweden, Denmark and Norway present resarch covering a wide range of issues in the book’s twelve chapters. By publishing the contributions collectively as an Open Access anthology, the authors wish to reach researchers in the field of sport psychology, sport psychology advisers and professionals throughout Scandinavia. The volume will also be relevant to anyone with any interest in sport. The editors of the book are Tommy Haugen and Rune Høigaard, who are both affiliated with the Department of Public Health, Sport and Nutrition in the Faculty of Health and Sport Sciences at the University of Agder.

Abstract

By celebrating the 2400th anniversary of the founding of Plato's Academy, this book gathers ten contributions concerning the founder of the Academy, his school and work, as well as the influence Plato exerted on later authors (from antiquity to the present), and the reception of his legacy throughout history.The themes explored in the five initial chapters focus on the analysis of various topics treated in individual Pla -tonic dialogues. To begin, the Phaedrusis considered for its significance regarding the philosophical conception of a “supra-heavenly place”. The next two chapters reflect upon Platonic paideia, first on the pedagogical princi-ples of The Statesman, and next on the analysis of sports activities in The Republic and inThe Laws. The dramatic and philosophical implications arising out of the multicultural origins of the characters in The Laws are brought into perspective alongside an insight drawn from the banquet, considered a model on which a philosophic com-munity can be constituted. The five remaining chapters have a general focus on Plato’s presence in later authors (from Neoplatonism to contemporary literature), as well the influence of the Academy.

Abstract

A Gender Budget is a strategic tool that provides an assessment of the political-economic and financial decisions of public administration from a gender-sensitive perspective. Its main goal is to support a more efficient, transparent, and equitable, management of resources.The first Gender Budget of the Università degli Studi di Napoli “Federico II” (UNINA) was realized within the framework of the European-Union funded GENOVATE research project: Transforming Organizational Culture for Gender Equality in Research and Innovation.It consists in a thorough context analysis of the University enrolment and career policy outcomes, encompassing students, academic, technical and administrative staff, which results in a detailed map of the still relevant gender gap dimension in the institution.Raw data and their focused analysis show how cultural and structural barriers contribute to women dropping out of university at the very beginning of scientific careers (i.e. the so-called ‘leaky pipeline’ phenomenon). Due to horizontal and vertical segregation mechanisms, some disciplinary fields and academic positions still remain dominated by one gender.It is the authors’ hope that Gender Budgeting may become a well-established practice at UNINA, and may support transformative actions and inspire gender-mainstreaming institutional policies.GENOVATE is a project funded by the European Commission within the Seventh Framework Programme (FP7), under the Science in Society grant programme (SiS 2012 2.1.1-1).This volume was co-funded by the European Union.

Abstract

Using archival materials never previously accessible to Western scholars, Michael David-Fox analyzes Bolshevik Party educational and research initiatives in higher learning after 1917. His fresh consideration of the era of the New Economic Policy and cultural politics after the Revolution explains how new communist institutions rose to parallel and rival conventional higher learning from the Academy of Sciences to the universities. Beginning with the creation of the first party school by intellectuals on the island of Capri in 1909, David-Fox argues, the Bolshevik cultural project was tightly linked to party educational institutions. He provides the first account of the early history and politics of three major institutions founded after the Revolution: Sverdlov Communist University, where the quest to transform everyday life gripped the student movement; the Institute of Red Professors, where the Bolsheviks sought to train a new communist intellectual or red specialist; and the Communist Academy, headquarters for a planned, collectivist, proletarian science.

Abstract

This monograph on Joseph Ignaz Mildorfer (1719-1775) consists of forteen chapters, that after having given an overall curriculum, depict the various stations in the painter's working process. Special emphasis has been given to such criteria as the socio-economic, political and esthetic impacts, that shaped the development of this intriguing artist. Mildorfer was born into a distinguished family of painters in Innsbruck, where he was taught the basics of his profession. However, he was also exposed to the newly imported paintings from southern Germany, which at this time sparked Tyrolian tradition with international flavor. Partly due to those early stimuli, the young painter managed to instantly gain the renowned "big prize" of the Academy, upon his arrival in Imperial Vienna. This distinction was a prerequisite to any further career. Praised by his contemporaries as the most prodigious pupil of Paul Troger, Mildorfer soon was offered remarkable employments. His first major task, the complete decoration of the pilgrimage church at Hafnerberg near Vienna, comprising works in fresco and oil was soon to be followed by a commission from the Imperial court. But Austria was plagued by a raging War of Succession, which cast its shadow upon the job market, forcing Mildorfer to venture out into alternative fields. This he found in the painting of battlescenes. In this genre the young artist produced works of such rebellious intenseness that surpassed all his colleagues' endeavors and saved him a special niche. It might well be that those particular paintings drew the attention of the last great sponsers of the monarchy to Mildorfer, resulting in his being appointed painter of the court to the Duchess of Savoy, neé Maria Theresia Princess of Liechtenstein. (By way of scholarly work in the Princely Archives of Liechtenstein we have now established answers to questions regarding character and extend of Mildorfers work for the Duchess, that up till now has been obscured). In addition this period marked the beginning of a long lasting relationship with various branches of the Esterházy family, culminating in Mildorfer's appointment to Esterháza. Here he was commissioned to paint al fresco in Duke Nikolaus Esterházy's castle, one of the last manifestations of feudal style, the elaborate adornment of which promted the Duke with the attribute "The Magnificent". When Mildorfer was elected Professor at the Academy (kaiserlich-königliche Hofakademie der Mahler, Bildhauer und Baukunst) this not only marked the zenith of his career but also had major impact on one of the most thrilling phenomena within eighteenth century Viennese art. It was under his leadership that a movement took center stage, that was aprostophized the "Einheitsstil der Wiener Akademie". Carried out by an array of his scholars, notably Franz Anton Maubertsch this faszinating manifestation had Mildorfer's ideas at its core. With his contributions in the Crown Lands of the Habsburg monarchy in mind, his work makes him a typical Central-European artist of the eighteenth century. However some of his lesser graspable traits can only be understood out of the "Zeitgeist" and must be explained under the term of "painter of the sensibility". Since Mildorfer is the link between Paul Troger, his teacher and Franz Anton Maulbertsch, his student, a comprehensive biography of this artist is an absolute must. Only that makes a profound understanding of the third generation of Austrian barock-painting possible.
