Challenging the mainstream orthodoxy of social scientific methodology, which closely guards the boundaries between the social sciences and the arts and humanities, this volume reveals that authors and artists are often engaged in projects parallel to those of the social sciences and vice versa, thus demonstrating that artistic and cultural production does not necessarily constitute a specialist field, but is in fact integral to social reality.

Wie Willensstärke unsere Persönlichkeit prägt Es ist das wohl berühmteste Experiment in der Geschichte der Psychologie: Ein Kind bekommt einen Marshmallow vorgesetzt und hat die Wahl – sofort aufessen oder warten, um später zwei zu bekommen? Wird es zögern oder zugreifen? Und was bedeutet diese Entscheidung für sein späteres Leben? Walter Mischel, weltbekannter Psychologe und Erfinder des Marshmallow-Tests, zeigt in seinem Buch, wie Selbstdisziplin unsere Persönlichkeit prägt – und wie sie uns, in gesundem Maße, hilft, unser Leben zu meistern. Als Mischel vor mehr als vierzig Jahren vier- bis sechsjährige Kinder zum Marshmallow-Test bat, wollte er herausfinden, wie Menschen auf Verlockungen reagieren. Eher durch Zufall entdeckte er, dass die Fähigkeit der Kinder zum Belohnungsaufschub beeinflusste, wie sie später ihr Leben meistern würden. Je besser es ihnen gelang, sich zu beherrschen, desto eher entwickelten sie Selbstvertrauen, Stressresistenz und soziale Kompetenz. Wie aber kommt es, dass manche Menschen offenbar über stärkere Willenskraft verfügen als andere? Und, noch wichtiger: Ist diese Fähigkeit genetisch veranlagt oder kann man sie lernen? Walter Mischel beschäftigt sich seit mehr als vierzig Jahren mit diesen Fragen – im vorliegenden Buch präsentiert er seine faszinierenden Erkenntnisse zum ersten Mal der breiten Öffentlichkeit.

Studies of the military that deal with the actual experience of troops in the field are still rare in the social sciences. In fact, this ethnographic study of an elite unit in the Israeli Defense Force is the only one of its kind. As an officer of this unit and a professional anthropologist, the author was ideally positioned for his role as participant observer. During the eight years he spent with his unit he focused primarily on such notions as "conflict," "the enemy," and "soldiering" because they are, he argues, the key points of reference for "what we are" and "what we are trying to do" and form the basis for interpreting the environment within which armies operate. Relying on the latest anthropological approaches to cognitive models and the social constructions of emotion and masculinity, the author offers an in-depth analysis of the dynamics that drive the men's attitudes and behavior, and a rare and fascinating insight into the reality of military life.
