The University of Washington-Korea Studies Program, in collaboration with Rowman & Littlefield Publishers, is proud to publish the Journal of Korean Studies. In 1979 Dr. James Palais (PhD Harvard 1968), former UW professor of Korean History edited and published the first volume of the Journal of Korean Studies. For thirteen years it was a leading academic forum for innovative, in-depth research on Korea. In 2004 former editors Gi-Wook Shin and John Duncan revived this outstanding publication at Stanford University. In August 2008 editorial responsibility transferred back to the University of Washington. With the editorial guidance of Clark Sorensen and Donald Baker, the Journal of Korean Studies (JKS) continues to be dedicated to publishing outstanding articles, from all disciplines, on a broad range of historical and contemporary topics concerning Korea. In addition the JKS publishes reviews of the latest Korea-related books.

Agent-based modelling on a computer appears to have a special role to play in the development of social science. It offers a means of discovering general and applicable social theory, and grounding it in precise assumptions and derivations, whilst addressing those elements of individual cognition that are central to human society. However, there are important questions to be asked and difficulties to overcome in achieving this potential. What differentiates agent-based modelling from traditional computer modelling? Which model types should be used under which circumstances? If it is appropriate to use a complex model, how can it be validated? Is social simulation research to adopt a realist epistemology, or can it operate within a social constructionist framework? What are the sociological concepts of norms and norm processing that could either be used for planned implementation or for identifying equivalents of social norms among co-operative agents? Can sustainability be achieved more easily in a hierarchical agent society than in a society of isolated agents? What examples are there of hybrid forms of interaction between humans and artificial agents? These are some of the sociological questions that are addressed.

This volume presents different conceptual and theoretical frameworks as well as research methods that have helped educational researchers to study emotions. It includes innovative approaches that push the methodological boundaries that have served educational researchers until now and proposes new ways of researching emotions in educational contexts. In particular, this edited volume provides a historical frame for studying emotions. It connects theoretical/epistemological views with choice of research methods and describes specific methods helpful in doing research on emotions as they are grounded in different theoretical and disciplinary traditions such as psychology, philosophy, sociology, history, political science, cultural studies, and feminist studies. Finally, it appreciates the contextual and international dimensions of studying emotions in education and contributes to ongoing debates about the implications of our methodological choices for understanding emotion in education. This combination of variety, timeliness, potential for transformation of the field, and uniqueness make this a very valuable resource to introduce new scholars in the field alongside established scholars.

Psychische Mechanismen und sozialwissenschaftliche Erklärung

English summary: In this work, the author compares different concepts of conformity to laws in the social sciences. He explains how some methodological problems can be neutralized if laws are interpreted as statements about theoretical contexts and not as statements about empirical regularities. German description: Sozialwissenschaftliche Erklarungen bleiben oft hinter dem wissenschaftstheoretischen Ideal zuruck, wonach eine Vielzahl empirischer Befunde aus umfassenden Theorien mit hoher Erklarungsleistung abgeleitet werden. Die aus einem positivistisch gepragten Wissenschaftsverstandnis resultierende Jagd nach empirischen Regularitaten wurde bereits von Lewin als Ausdruck eines 'aristotelischen' Wissenschaftsverstandnisses kritisiert.Michael Mark zeigt, dass die von Lewin geforderte 'galileische' Wende moglich wird, wenn man Gesetzesaussagen nicht langer als Aussagen uber Zusammenhange zwischen empirischen Variablen deutet, sondern stattdessen in Anlehnung an Cartwright als Aussagen uber Zusammenhange zwischen theoretischen Entitaten interpretiert. Cartwright zeigte, dass selbst physikalische Gesetze im allgemeinen nur ceteris paribus gelten. Michael Mark legt nun dar, dass sozialwissenschaftliche Gesetze ebenfalls nicht deskriptiv vollstandig sind. Sie beschreiben vielmehr nomologische Mechanismen, die in empirischen Anwendungsfallen nicht in Reinform, sondern stets in Form einer Interaktion mehrerer Mechanismen zur Wirkung kommen. Dies ist der Grund, weshalb man auf empirischer Ebene keine allgemeingultigen Gesetze findet.Michael Mark untersucht bestehende Forschungsprogramme daraufhin, ob sie sich als metatheoretische Modelle zur Integration sozialwissenschaftlicher Aussagen eignen. Ein von Malewski entworfenes Integrationsmodell entwickelt er so weiter, dass es den Konsequenzen des geschilderten Theorieverstandnisses Rechnung tragt. In einer Reihe von sozialpsychologischen und soziologischen Fallstudien demonstriert er die Fruchtbarkeit des entwickelten Ansatzes. Es zeigt sich, dass durch diesen Ansatz die Erklarungsleistung deutlich verbessert werden kann.

Justice plays an important role in our culture. The topic of justice has attracted the attention of scholars all over the world. Beginning in 1985, a continuing series of international conferences on social justice in The Netherlands at which scientists present and discuss started papers, exchange information, and choose new roads to theory build ing. In this volume, a selection of papers, presented at the International Conference on Social Justice in Human Relations (Leiden, 1986) is published. There has been some refinement and improvement, thanks to the comments made by experts in the field. The chapters in this volume represent second (and, in some cases, even third or fourth) versions of the papers. As organizers of the conference and editors of this volume, we hope that the reader will be pleased by the content and the high quality of the chapters. There is some diversity, but there also are some common themes. We have organized the chapters with respect to what we think are two important themes: (1) behavioral and attitudinal reactions to (in) justice and (2) macrojustice. These categories are not mutually exclusive, for some chapters could have been placed in both categories. Still, we think the distinction between these themes has value.
