Her growing closeness to a man twenty years younger than herself causes increasing tension among her family and friends. But having only just attained her longed-for freedom, is Margaret falling into another trap? If she rushes headlong into a new relationship, is she in danger of making the same mistakes all over again?

English summary: This study uses the insights drawn from newly-discovered archival material from Moscow, Warsaw, Berlin, London and Washington D.C. to reconstruct the contemporary perceptions of West German Ostpolitik in Poland, the GDR, the Soviet Union, Great Britain and the USA. German text. German description: Nach dem Zweiten Weltkrieg, der Westverschiebung Polens und den Vertreibungen der Deutschen aus diesen Gebieten, schien das Verhaltnis zwischen Polen und Deutschland als bleibend feindselig definiert. Entsprechend schwierig gestalteten sich die Beziehungen zwischen der Bundesrepublik Deutschland und der Volksrepublik Polen. Erst mit Willy Brandts Neuer Ostpolitik seit 1969, die auf Aussohnung mit den Volkern Ostmitteleuropas abzielte, anderten sich die Verhaltnisse grundlegend. Etwas besser entwickelten sich zunachst die Beziehungen zwischen der DDR und Polen. Der Gorlitzer Vertrag von 1950, in dem sie dem Nachbarn die Unverletzlichkeit der Oder-Neisse-Grenze zusicherte, schuf eine stabile Basis fur annehmbare bilaterale Kontakte. Mit Hilfe neuer Archivfunde aus Moskau, Warschau, Berlin, London und Washington D.C. zeichnet Katarzyna Stokfosa ein neues Bild der deutschen Ostpolitik.

The Gastronomic Regenerator

a Simplified and Entirely New System of Cookery, with nearly Two Thousand Practical Receipts suited to the income of all Classes

At the request of several persons of distinction, who have visited the Reform Club,—particularly the ladies, to whom I have always made it a rule never to refuse anything in my power, for indeed it must have been the fair sex who have had the majority in this domestic argument to gain this gastronomical election,—Why do you not write and publish a Cookery-book? was a question continually put to me. For a considerable time this scientific word caused a thrill of horror to pervade my frame, and brought back to my mind that one day, being in a most superb library in the midst of a splendid baronial hall, by chance I met with one of Milton’s allegorical works, the profound ideas of Locke, and several chefs-d’œuvre of one of the noblest champions of literature, Shakspeare; when all at once my attention was attracted by the nineteenth edition of a voluminous work: such an immense success of publication caused me to say, “Oh! you celebrated man, posterity counts every hour of fame upon your regretted ashes!” Opening this work with intense curiosity, to my great disappointment what did I see,—a receipt for Ox-tail Soup! The terrifying effect produced upon me by this succulent volume made me determine that my few ideas, whether culinary or domestic, should never encumber a sanctuary which should be entirely devoted to works worthy of a place in the Temple of the Muses. But you must acknowledge, respected readers, how changeable and uncertain are our feeble ideas through life; to keep the promise above mentioned, I have been drawn into a thousand gastronomic reflections, which have involved me in the necessity of deviating entirely from my former opinion, and have induced me to bring before the public the present volume, under the title of ‘The Gastronomic Regenerator,’ throughout which I have closely followed the plain rules of simplicity, so that every receipt can not only clearly be understood, but easily executed. I now sincerely hope, Ladies, that I have not only kept my promise, but to your satisfaction paid tribute to your wishes. You have not forgotten, dear reader, the effect that monstrous volume, the said nineteenth edition, produced upon me, therefore I now sincerely beg of you to put my book in a place suited to its little merit, and not with Milton’s sublime Paradise, for there it certainly would be doubly lost.

The Intuitive Sources of Probabilistic Thinking in Children

About a year ago I promised my friend Fischbein a preface to his book of which I knew the French manuscript. Now with the printer's proofs under my eyes I like the book even better than I did then, because of, and influenced by, new experiences in the meantime, and fresh thoughts that crossed my mind. Have I been influenced by what I remembered from the manuscript? If so, it must have happened unconsciously. But of course, what struck me in this work a year ago, struck a responsive chord in my own mind. In the past, mathematics teaching theory has strongly been influenced by a view on mathematics as a heap of concepts, and on learning mathematics as concepts attainment. Mathematics teaching practice has been jeopardised by this theoretical approach, which in its most dangerous form expresses itself as a radical atomism. To concepts attainment Fischbein opposes acquisition of intuitions. In my own publications I avoided the word "intuition" because of the variety of its meanings across languages. For some time I have used the term "constitution of mathematical objects", which I think means the same as Fischbein's "acquisition of intuitions" - indeed as I view it, constituting a mental object precedes its conceptualising, and under this viewpoint I tried to observe mathematical activities of young children.
