Dieses Buch befasst sich mit der Rechtspsychologie und ihren unterschiedlichen Erscheinungsformen. Einerseits geht es um die Psychologie des Rechts, die sich in einem Naheverhaltnis zur Rechtsphilosophie und zur Rechtssoziologie befindet, und andererseits um die Psychologie im Dienst der Rechtspflege, die als angewandte Psychologie methodisch bei den Naturwissenschaften ressortiert. Folgt man dem Begrunder der modernen wissenschaftlichen Psychologie, Wilhelm Wundt, so stehen am Beginn samtlicher rechtspsychologischer Bemuhungen zunachst einmal die Sozial- und Geisteswissenschaften - und naturlich auch die Jurisprudenz und das Recht. So kommen in diesem Band denn auch soziologische und sozialphilosophische Beitrage, Beitrage zur qualitativ und hermeneutisch arbeitenden Psychologie des Rechts, aber auch Beitrage zur quantitativ und naturwissenschaftlich arbeitenden Psychologie im Dienst der Rechtspflege zum Zug. Den Kreis zur Rechtspsychologie als Kulturwissenschaft schliessen Beitrage zu den Besonderheiten einzelner Rechtskulturen. Das Werk ist - aus Anlass seines 70sten Geburtstags - eine Festgabe fur Manfred Rehbinder, Prof. emeritus und Direktor des Europaischen Instituts fur Rechtspsychologie in Zurich."

Commentators have noted the extraordinary impact of popular culture on legal practice, courtroom proceedings, police departments, and government as a whole, and it is no exaggeration to say that most people derive their basic understanding of law from cultural products. Movies, television programs, fiction, children’s literature, online games, and the mass media typically influence attitudes and impressions regarding law and legal institutions more than law and legal institutions themselves. Law and Popular Culture: International Perspectives enhances the appreciation of the interaction between popular culture and law by underscoring this interaction’s multinational and international features. Two dozen authors from nine countries invite readers to consider the role of law-related popular culture in a broad range of nations, socio-political contexts, and educational environments. Even more importantly, selected contributors explore the global transmission and reception of law-related cultural products and, in particular, the influence of assorted works and media across national borders and cultural boundaries. The circulation and consumption of law-related popular culture are increasing as channels of mass media become more complex and as globalization runs its uncertain course. Law and Popular Culture: International Perspectives adds to the critical understanding of the worldwide interaction of popular culture and law and encourages reflection on the wider implications of this mutual influence across both time and geography.

This book is an elementary exposition. It contains no more technically than seemed readily understandable by the intelligent layman and the medical student desiring a merely general introduction to modern views on the motives of human conduct and the mental processes of which that conduct is the expression. Part I gives some account of processes and motives that are universal and therefore normal. Part II is written from the angle of the physician who sees the results, always common but nowadays more frequently discussed, of the miscarriage of the normal development of human beings as such.

British writers of the 20th century have used humor in various ways in their works. This book surveys humor in British literature from Sir Arthur Wing Pinero (1855-1934) through Douglas (Noel) Adams (1952-). The volume is divided into ten chapters, with the first chapter covering authors born between 1855 and 1869, and with later chapters each covering authors born during a particular decade. Each chapter discusses the humor, satire, parody, irony, comedy, and wit of individual authors and gives extensive bibliographical information about other critics who have done the same. The book is arranged chronologically according to the birth year of the author being discussed. Through this chronological arrangement, the reader may trace the evolution of British literary humor over time. An index allows the reader to locate individual authors alphabetically.
