Tragic Pathos: Pity and Fear in Greek Philosophy and Tragedy by Dana LaCourse Munteanu
English | 2011 | ISBN: 0521765102 | 292 pages | PDF | 1,3 MB

Scholars have often focused on understanding Aristotle's poetic theory, and particularly the concept of catharsis in the Poetics, as a response to Plato's critique of pity in the Republic. However, this book shows that, while Greek thinkers all acknowledge pity and some form of fear as responses to tragedy, each assumes for the two emotions a different purpose, mode of presentation and, to a degree, understanding.

In American Hegemony and the Postwar Reconstruction of Science in Europe, John Krige describes the efforts of influential figures in the United States to model postwar scientific practices and institutions in Western Europe on those in America. They mobilized political and financial support to promote not just America's scientific and technological agendas in Western Europe but its Cold War political and ideological agendas as well.
Proving the Unprovable: The Role of Law, Science, and Speculation in Adjudicating Culpability and Dangerousness

The law frequently looks to mental health professionals to help determine whether defendants can be deemed culpable for crimes or incarcerated to prevent them from harming others. The cases of Charles McCoy, who plead not guilty by reason of insanity to the Interstate 270 shootings in Ohio,
and Patricia Johnson, who recently won the right to a new trial for the 1991 murder of her husband to allow the court to consider battered woman syndrome in her defense, involve countless mental health professionals arguing from both sides of the bench. They also demonstrate that these cases figure prominently in legal and psychological discourses. However, many legal professionals are increasingly challenging the testimony offered by behavioral health experts, calling it unreliable and maligning it as a form of speculative story-telling.
