Empirische Bildungsforschung ist ein grundlegender Forschungsbereich, der sich mit den Voraussetzungen, Bedingungen, Prozessen und Ergebnissen von Bildung über die gesamte Lebensspanne hinweg innerhalb und ausserhalb von Bildungssituationen befasst. Vor dem aktuellen Hintergrund der PISA-Befunde und der bildungspolitischen Diskussion gewinnt dieses Forschungsfeld zunehmend an Brisanz. Das vorliegende Buch beschreibt den Stand der Empirischen Bildungsforschung in Deutschland unter Einbeziehung internationaler Entwicklungen (namentlich im Hinblick auf erfolgreiche Modelle in Grossbritannien und den Niederlanden) und zeigt die Möglichkeiten, wie diese Forschung gefördert werden sollte. Im Vordergrund stehen besonders die Nachwuchsförderung, unterstützende strukturelle Rahmenbedingungen an Hochschulen sowie die Ausrichtung von Forschungsprogrammen auf spezifische Themenstellungen der Empirischen Bildungsforschung.

The book describes the main physical processes and phenomena in pulsed electric breakdown. The knowledge and the control of the electric breakdown of liquids is important not only for the insulation inside power systems but it is also used for the creation and information of high voltage and high current pulses. Such high-voltage micro- and nanosecond pulses find wide application in experimental physics, electro discharge technology, physics of dielectrics, radar detection and ranging, high-speed photography.

Mis Reading The Creative Impulse

Building on work by Aristotle, Jacques Lacan, and Harold Bloom, Adrianna M. Paliyenko’s richly textured study revises our previous understanding of Arthur Rimbaud’s (1854–1891) indirect artistic influence on Paul Claudel (1868–1955). Paliyenko’s analysis answers to critical readings that rely on speculative spiritual affinities and text-surface similarities in identifying Claudel as Rimbaud’s artistic follower. She traces the two writers’ development of the poetic subject, striving to map Claudel’s "creative corrections," or revisions, of Rimbaud’s work. In redirecting discussion of Rimbaud’s work, she develops a Bloomian paradigm of how creative artists strive for originality by correcting or revising their predecessors.

In his work as research and development director at cutting-edge think tank TalentSmart, where he helps businesses work better and employees think smarter, Nick Tasler realized that the recent discovery by scientists of a potential-seeking gene could have a remarkable impact on how we understand decision making. Those who have this gene -- about one quarter of the population -- are endowed with impulsive tendencies that can lead to fast and decisive action or to foolish choices. The cautious majority that Tasler calls risk managers can make carefully considered decisions or become hopelessly lost in the fog of details. Now The Impulse Factor offers readers a unique online opportunity to analyze their own decision-making style and harness it to improve their everyday lives. Each book comes with access to a proprietary assessment developed specifically to evaluate impulsivity. With examples from business, psychology, and Tasler's own research at TalentSmart, the book also vividly illustrates how susceptible we are to the events around us and how our reactions often run contrary to our best interests. By combining his research with real-world examples of extreme decision making, Tasler teaches readers how to thrive when faced with difficult choices. More than just a book, The Impulse Factor provides a clear understanding of why you make the choices you do -- and the tools to make those decisions change your business and your life.

In the last decade, much needed attention and research has been focused on the group of psychiatric conditions termed 'impulse control disorders' or ICDs. Pathological gambling, compulsive shopping, kleptomania, hypersexuality, Internet 'addiction', among other disorders, are characterized by a recurrent urge to perform a repetitive behavior that is gratifying in the moment but causes significant long-term distress and disability. Despite the high rate of co-morbidity with obsessive compulsive disorder, ICDs are now clearly distinguished from these disorders with a unique clinical approach for diagnosis and treatment. A wide array of psychopharmacologic and psychotherapeutic options is now available for treating these disorders. Drs Elias Aboujaoude and Lorrin M. Koran have collated the world's foremost experts in ICD research and treatment to create a comprehensive book on the frequency, evolution, treatment, and related public policy, public health, forensic, and medical issues of these disorders. This is the first book to bring together medical and social knowledge bases related to impulse control disorders.

Michael analyzes the intersections between feminist politics and postmodern aesthetics as demonstrated in recent Anglo-American fiction. While much has been written on various aspects of postmodernism and postmodern fiction and of feminism and feminist fiction, very little attention has been given to the postmodern aesthetic strategies that surface in post-World War II feminist fiction. Feminism and the Postmodern Impulse examines ways in which many widely read and acclaimed novels with feminist impulses engage and transform subversive aesthetic strategies usually associated with postmodern fiction to strengthen their feminist political edge. The author discusses many examples of recent feminist-postmodern fiction, and explores in greater depth Doris Lessing's The Golden Notebook, Marge Piercy's Woman on the Edge of Time, Margaret Atwood's The Handmaid's Tale, and Angela Carter's Nights at the Circus. She shows that feminist-postmodern fiction's emphasis on the material historical situation--the link to activist politics and commitment to enacting concrete changes in the world, and thus the need to reach a large reading public--often results in a blending and transformation of postmodern and realist aesthetic forms. Moreover, feminist fiction uses deconstructive strategies not only to disrupt the status quo but also to create a space for reconstruction, particularly of recreating new forms of female subjectivities and feminist aesthetics.

The Medievalist Impulse In American Literature

Why has the medievalist impulse - as manifested in an attraction to the traditions of courtly love and chivalry - been ignored or marginalized in the context of American literature, especially given its prominence in studies of British literature? Which American writers manifest the medievalist impulse, whether textually or subtextually, consciously or unconsciously? How does the medievalist impulse affect their works? What does the existence of this impulse, in its various idiosyncratic manifestations, reveal about these writers and American culture? Kim Moreland sets out to answer these and other questions, providing close readings of a variety of texts, both familiar and unfamiliar, while drawing eclectically on theoretical approaches such as feminism, deconstruction, cultural criticism, and psychobiography. She first demonstrates that the medievalist impulse permeates American literature and culture, then shows the tradition best represented by four writers: Mark Twain, Henry Adams, F. Scott Fitzgerald, and Ernest Hemingway. Their works reveal with particular power the various ways in which nineteenth- and twentieth-century writers appropriated the ideals of courtly love and chivalry as superior to the materialism of modern civilization at a time of radical change and social disruption.
