The Results of That Rebellion

The Functionalists seemed to have been the most well organized of the three new psychological schools. In addition, they had decided to switch their research focus from passively observing the subjective structure of a passive mind, to observing the contents of active minds at work in every day life. That interest might have led to a later psychotherapeutic focus. However, neither the Functionalist nor the other two schools attracted much attention. That was probably due largely to the aggressively attacking and rejecting stance the behaviorists took toward the other schools of psychology. The behaviorists were led by the charismatic, proselytizing behavioral psychologist named John B. Watson. He had become a strong enthusiast of the idea of making Pavlovian conditioning the basis for behavioral psychology.

Eastman Professor at Oxford

Felix Frankfurter was not alone in his admiration of Oxford. Most Eastman professors were enthusiastic about the experience and marvel at the intellectual freedom that the Oxford system affords, as indeed I did myself in an article entitled A clerk at Oxenford published in a faculty newsletter that Duke University used to put out for its staff. In retrospect, I am not sure whether my admiration was fully justified is the system really still viable from an educational standpoint Freedom to excel also allows for freedom to fail and I suspect that I saw many failures. Today we are faced with an increasingly egalitarian world - a society that is more regulated, with rules spelt out to give everyone equal access. Somewhere along the line, modern teachers are supposed to tell the student exactly what he needs to do to pass exams and to fill employers' expectations. The American system and the bulk of Britain's less prestigious universities may be better suited for this task than the fabled...

Developmental Strengths and Needs of Adolescents

The cognitive skills of teenagers vastly exceed those of younger children. At this point, most adolescents can consider many causes for events, can think abstractly, and can entertain a range of possible outcomes to events. They are able to take a longer time perspective and to envision their futures more clearly than are younger children. At the same time, biological changes require the management and regulation of more intense emotions, such as anger and love, as well as sexual urges. Programs designed to address their needs must take into account their longer histories of coping with domestic violence, as well as the developmental tasks of establishing themselves as competent, well liked, and independent from their families.

Psychological Insights

People who do not achieve an attitude of generativity tend to stagnate. They live mainly for themselves and contribute little to others. Others quickly sense that they are in it only for themselves, and the quality of their relationships is poor. Not only are they less well liked than others, but also their abilities to collaborate with others are compromised. This can rapidly develop into a vicious cycle in which lack of generativity breeds isolation, which in turn breeds increasing stagnation. We need to look for ways to encourage members of our departments to contribute to purposes greater than themselves. Such opportunities might include helping to raise funds, taking an active role in mentoring junior colleagues, or becoming involved in community service. Education itself is one of the best opportunities, because it focuses our attention on the needs of learners and helps us to stay active as learners ourselves.

Antisepsis And Asepsis

Microbial contaminants, the concept of aseptic wounds is essentially an oxymoronic microbiological myth. On the other hand, antiseptics alone cannot guarantee uncomplicated healing the immunological status of the patient and the pathogenic burden are important factors. Lister generally preferred his own antiseptic methods and, despite his admiration for Louis Pasteur, insisted on keeping his instruments in carbolic acid, even after Pasteur and his colleague Charles Chamberland (1851-1908) demonstrated that heat sterilization was superior to chemical disinfection of surgical instruments. Chamberland's autoclave, a device for sterilization by moist heat under pressure, was in general use in bacteriology laboratories in the 1880s.

Present Situation Including Comments on Karolinska Nobel and Funding

From the scientific (and society ) eyes of outside. Many have praised the carefulness of the Nobel evaluation system, and I share this admiration. It is a rewarding work. In addition, it is a great fun, uniting different subjects at the faculty level, learning to know fields and distant colleagues. In this connection, I have also been involved in a Post-Office philatelic stamp issue (Figure 6). Above all, Nobel work has a positive attitude, always trying to find the best, and at the end participating

Understanding Leadership

Like expert power, referent power cannot be bestowed by the organization. It involves the admiration and loyalty that we earn through our interactions with others, and in particular, through our ability to lead by example. The German sociologist Max Weber used the term charisma to describe this kind of leader. Charismatic chairs or deans are not only naturally magnetic individuals, but people with a vision for their organization and a strong belief that they are the right people to lead its pursuit.

Epidemiology And Clinical Features

In MEN type IIB, as in type IIA, all patients who inherit the disease develop MTC. All MEN type IIB individuals develop mucosal neuromas, whereas 40 to 50 of patients develop pheochromocytomas. These patients often have a distinct physical appearance with a prominent mid-upper lip, prominent eyelids, and multiple tongue nodules. A marfanoid body habitus, with a relatively small torso and long limbs, is also associated with MEN. MEN type IIB patients do not develop hyperparathyroidism. MTC in MEN type IIB patients develops at a very young age, in infancy, and appears to be the most aggressive form of hereditary MTC, although its aggressiveness may be more related to the extremely early age of onset rather than to the biologic virulence of the tumor. Once it presents clinically, MTC in patients with MEN type IIB is rarely curable.

Schools Of Family Therapy

Many different approaches have been, and continue to be, used by therapists in their efforts to promote change in families. As the field developed, most of the pioneers became identified with particular methods, and so schools of family therapy came to be identified. Nevertheless, there was, from the start, much overlap between the methods of different therapists and schools. It can also be difficult to know how far the success of a particular approach is due, on the one hand, to the theoretical underpinnings and the methods used and, on the other hand, to the personality and charisma of the therapist. Many of the pioneers were powerful personalities, with well-developed interpersonal skills and great powers of persuasion. Even today, the ability of therapists to establish rapport with the families they treat, and to be convincing in the interventions they offer, is probably at least as important as their theoretical persuasion or the school of therapy to which they subscribe. Subject...

Pupil of Herman Kalckar and Experiments with Xanthine Oxidase

However, as time went by, I felt that marine biology might not be the right field for me. One day when I had lunch with my fellow students, one of them mentioned that a certain Dr. Kalckar had returned to Denmark after having spent the time during the war in the USA doing biochemical research there. It sounded very interesting to me and I decided to approach Kalckar. His personality and his charisma immediately fascinated me. In addition, his work on nucleosides and pteridines sounded so exciting that I asked him right away if he was willing to accept me as his student. I was very happy that he did so but I felt uneasy about asking the marine biologist to release me from our agreement. But he generously did so and it was thus my great fortune that Herman Kalckar, this unique character and great scientist, became my teacher and mentor and later my close friend.

Releasing the captive

Interestingly, Fitter argued that the direct intervention of the Survival Service Commission had been important in the survival of only two species, the Javan rhinoceros and Asiatic lion. It was governments that had sought to save the rest. Governments were, of course, inevitably the leading actors in conservation during the 20th century, with the powers to legislate to protect species and to designate protected areas. However, species-based conservation, and especially captive breeding, had a particular appeal to governments. Whatever their general convictions about the desirability of conservation, the extirpation of species within national borders provides unequivocal evidence of failure, and a clear focus for action. Once that focus is agreed, government scientists and others can be targeted to deal with it. Furthermore, rare and near-extinct species provide a valuable ideological focus for popular support for conservation. Rare species that can be presented as having a...

In the Watson Gilbert Group 19651968

At this time Mark Ptashne, who was a Harvard Junior Fellow, invited me to come as a guest to a dinner of the Junior Fellows. About twenty young men of all fields (at this time women were not yet allowed to participate) met every Tuesday evening for dinner and talked with each other about their work. What lively discussions I was deeply impressed. Such mutual interest and discussion were lacking in German universities, and still are lacking. I have later been a guest again. Every time I have been there my admiration deepened. There was nothing like this in Germany. Some years ago, in Cologne the rector of the university opened a cafe, a small dining room, for the faculty in the main building. A year later it had to be closed. Nobody ever went there. It was always empty.

Operation save the species

The classic example of conservation action being driven by a charismatic species is probably the WWF 'Project Tiger campaign', launched in 1972, aiming to raise US 1 million.41 A census in 1970 showed that the population of tigers in India had fallen from an estimated 40,000 in 1930 to only 1800, in directly inverse proportion to the growth in rural population and habitat change. Within 18 months, 800,000 had been raised for tiger conservation worldwide. Project Tiger won support at the highest level in India, with a special task force appointed by Mrs Indira Gandhi. With scientific and technical support from IUCN and WWF, the Indian Government created 11 new reserves explicitly for tigers. Most of these were small (the largest 2840 square kilometres), and in total covered 16,000 square kilometres. Even so, 33 villages were moved, creating a store of social and political problems that reverberate to the present day. In biological terms, the programme was reported to be successful,...

Parenting and Sustaining Partnerships

Most individuals do not choose a life partner or other important voluntary relationships at random. People tend to seek out and pursue relationships with others to whom they feel attracted and with whom they feel comfortable. When discussing their choice of marriage partners, people often describe the attractions of physical appearance, but usually far more important are mutual attractions due to many complicated, unrecognized features of personality and interpersonal style. Such elements can have a powerful effect on interpersonal attraction and or conflict, often in ways that are noticeable only over time as the attachment develops more fully.

Emotional intelligence

To take one example, there is an interesting relationship between emotional intelligence and style of leadership. A basic distinction is between transactional and transformational leaders. Transactional leaders work through the use of rewards and punishments leadership for them is a question of transactions. Transformational leaders work through affiliation, affection and general emotional involvement they tend to be charismatic. They have visionary goals, challenge the status quo and concern themselves with individual needs.

Thomas Sydenham The English Hippocrates

Studying cadavers was useless, because death was an admission of defeat, or proof of inadequate care. Medical education, according to Sydenham, could take place only at the bedside of the sick, not in the classroom, library, or anatomy theater. Despite his admiration for Hippocrates, Sydenham insisted that experience had been his only teacher. Many of the anecdotes treasured by Sydenham's followers reflect this attitude. For example, when Dr. Richard Blackmore asked Sydenham to recommend the best books for learning medicine, he replied ''Read 'Don Quixote' it is a very good book I read it myself still.'' Perhaps this retort reflected his opinion of both young doctor Blackmore and the medical literature of his time, along with microscopy and pathological anatomy, which he dismissed as frivolous and irrelevant.

On Galen And Galenism

Galen taught that the best physician was also a philosopher. Therefore, the true physician must master the three branches of philosophy logic, the science of how to think physics, the science of nature and ethics, the science of what to do. With such knowledge, the physician could gain his patient's obedience and the admiration due to a god. Ideally, the physician would practice medicine for the love of mankind, not for profit, because the pursuit of science and money were mutually exclusive. In his writings, Galen portrayed himself as a scholar who realized that it was impossible to discover all that he passionately wished to know despite his persistent search for truth.

Axis II Personality Disorders and Mental Retardation

By pathological, it is meant that the severity of the symptom in Personality Disorders exceeds that which would be considered acceptable or normal by most people. Hot tempers, while not well-liked, are not necessarily pathological, but repeatedly getting into physical fights could be considered excessive. Daydreaming of a life more fantastic than one's own may be an occasional brief escape, but losing hours lost in fantasy could be considered excessive. Impulsive spontaneity can be fun, but impulsivity that results in overextended spending sprees, sexual indiscretions, or reckless driving could be considered excessive. Feeling empty and lonely are a part of the human condition, but suicide attempts that result from these feelings could be considered excessive. In each of these examples, what makes the behavior pathological in Personality Disorders involves the intensity of the subjective feeling, an impairment in judgment, and the degree to which the subjective feeling is translated...

Early Historical Roots Of Behavior Therapy

Wilhelm Wundt started the structuralistic psychology in Germany. After training with him, Edward R. Titchener brought structuralism to America in the late nineteenth century. Passive, structured introspection of one's own mind, however, proved to be unproductive. Envy of the natural scientists soon developed among American psychologists, because unlike psychologists, the natural scientists had concrete, objectively observable constructs. Those constructs could be manipulated with satisfying predictable and reportable results. Those results could be recognized and objectively replicated, and they could produce honors and recognition for the scientists who discovered them. The charismatic Cattell, of the psychology laboratory at the prestigious Columbia University, continually made this boast. The research in his laboratory was as independent of introspection as was in the research in physics or zoology. The rapidly increasing general professional interest in doing that type of research...

Transference as a Therapeutic Relationship

As transference distortions develop, their manifestations can be either positive or negative, paralleling the ambivalence that underlies all feelings that are in part unconscious. Positive transference refers to the expression of good feelings toward the analyst, of love and its many variations, manifested in (albeit excessive) interest, trust, admiration, respect, sympathy,

Managing a Household and Finances

This intelligent, witty, vivacious teacher was well liked by her students and respected by her colleagues, but she had great difficulty meeting the demands of her graduate-level course and in managing her household routines and finances. Her parents had provided loans to bail her out of several financial scrapes, but their resources were limited and she recognized that she needed to manage her own money, time, and stuff in a much better planned and more responsible way.

Fostering Excellence

The need for affiliation manifests as a desire to be identified with a group and to be well liked by its members. Those of us in whom the need for affiliation predominates tend to place a higher premium on the quality of our relationships than on our own accomplishments or authority. We may be willing to forego achievement and influence for the sake of friendship. This can cause problems in the realm of leadership, where we want so badly to be on good terms with everyone that we find it difficult to make the tough decisions that our organization requires.

Species and identity

The conservation of particular species, sometimes called 'flagship species', can have importance for conservation strategies that goes beyond the immediate biodiversity preservation benefits.127 Cynically, it is clear that action for particular species is a proven way to stimulate financial support for conservation activities from donors and the members of conservation organizations. More importantly, the plight of particular charismatic species can draw attention to more diffuse, generalized conservation issues. Threats to species such as primates (lemurs or orang-utans for example) have been extremely effective in raising public awareness of the problem of tropical forest loss, particularly in the industrialized countries. The humanitarian potential of appeals based on threats to species like primates strengthen their importance as emotive symbols of wider land cover change. Indeed, species are central to the humanitarian


In the popular imagination, the quagga has been joined by a succession of other charismatic species threatened with extinction as popular subjects of conservation's openly emotional appeal.36 The chinchilla, the Seychelles magpie-robin, the woodhen of Lord Howe Island, have all won a place in conservation's list of causes celebres. Some icons are unlikely, such as the thylacine (or Tasmanian tiger), which after years of persecution received protection in 1936, six years after the last wild animal was shot, and barely two months before the last zoo specimen (in Hobart's Beaumaris Zoo) died of neglect.37 On the other hand, the cuddly giant panda, selected and drawn by Peter Scott as the symbol of the World Wildlife Fund in 1961, perfectly captured this slightly mawkish public sentimentality about extinction.38 There has often been both an anger and a desperation about it. My childhood hero, Gerald Durrell, explained in the introduction to his exotic account of the animal collecting...


By the time that a question session was over, the new principal had brought about a mini-conversion in even the cynical and the bad-humoured among his new staff. They were not yet fully convinced but they were at least willing to give him a go. This is an example of a transformational, or charismatic or visionary, leader offering a very different set of possibilities than the laissez-faire. With respect to leadership style, there is also the matter of informal or emergent leadership. In many groups, leaders are placed there by virtue of employment, their right, their status in some other setting, and so on. However, in most groups, leaders also emerge in a more informal way. Groups tend to have both formal and informal leaders. Generally, informal leaders are those who are more active than other members of the group, who have a greater ability at the task in hand and who are more likeable. Rarely, such characteristics all emerge in one person and then a particular type of leadership...

Red for danger

The power of the species focus to capture and hold the attention of conservationists and their supporters is shown by the remarkable enthusiasm for bats shown by conservationists in the 1980s. IUCN formed a Chiroptera Specialist Group in 1975, with support from WWF and the Fauna and Flora Preservation Society (FFPS).36 Although not perhaps immediately charismatic, bats offered the advantage of novelty to the FFPS, then a small organization

President 19911994

The endowment of large sums of money to build universities and I had to tell the participants that without the help of charismatic leading scientists, who developed research, there was no use for the money. I took as an example from the Arab world my own aunt,ViviTackholm, who through her enthusiasm had made the Botany Department at Cairo University a leading institute. To my delight she had been teacher to many of the Arabic delegates present.


We selected cities where good research centers could be found in both my field and Regina's. We were determined not to let adversity spoil our research careers and the deal was that if one of us got a position, the other would work even without a salary until better times came and we could go back home. One of the cities selected was Heidelberg, in Germany. Regina worked in geomorphology and at the University of Heidelberg there was an excellent group working in her field of interest. At that time I had already several publications on Ca2+ transport by the sarcoplasmic reticulum of skeletal muscle and decided to write a letter to Wilhelm Hasselbach, head of the Max Planck Institute in Heidelberg. Hasselbach had discovered the Ca2+ pump of skeletal muscle in collaboration with Madoka Makinose and I had read with respect and admiration most of their publications. We had positive answers from about 20 of the letters sent and in two of them we were offered positions in the...

Antiplatelet therapy

Table 8.6 Results of the CHARISMA trial primary and secondary end points comparing clopidogrel aspirin versus aspirin alone. From reference 21, with permission The CURE18, CLARITY-TIMI 2819, and COMMIT20 trials collectively randomized approximately 62 000 patients with acute coronary syndromes to receive either clopidogrel or placebo in addition to usual therapies (Figures 8.10-8.12). They demonstrated the superiority of treatment with clopidogrel for both clinical and angiographic end points in durations of up to 1 year, and that these benefits were maximized with earlier treatment. However the Clopidogrel for High Atherothrombic Risk and Ischemic Stabilization, Management and Avoidance (CHARISMA)

Uppsala 19611966

In the meantime, when equipping the laboratory, I had plenty of time to establish contacts with other scientists in Uppsala. Peter Reichard studied the synthesis of deoxyribonucleotides, which was far from my interest, but at least I helped him to determine the molecular weight of thioredoxin, which he had discovered. He surrounded himself with a number of very talented graduate students, who are now filling chairs in various parts of Sweden. The second professor in the department, Gunnar Agren, worked on nutrition and protein phosphoryla-tion, but when I came his research was no longer at its peak. However, his students Lorentz Engstrom and Orjan Zetterqvist continued the tradition of protein phosphorylation. Ernst Barany was professor of pharmacology in the department next door and his special interest was eye physiology and pathophy-siology, especially glaucoma, i.e., close to my interest. He was a charismatic person with numerous ideas he was liked by everybody and he had a strong...

Species in situ

Captive breeding is only one dimension of species-focused conservation. Species have also been highly effective in providing the focus for in-situ conservation, for example to gather and direct support for a national park. The classic charismatic species in terms of habitat conservation in the 20th was probably the mountain gorilla. The importance of mountain gorillas to conservation in the past century was outlined briefly in Chapter 1. At different periods they have epitomized the challenges facing conservation, and the strategies proposed for their conservation have tended to lead discussions about conservation more generally. In particular, mountain gorillas have been a test case for in-situ conservation. The threat posed by the collection of specimens for display outside Africa was clearly recognized by the 1920s. In 1924, C W In 1989, the International Gorilla Conservation Programme was formed, a joint programme of the FFPS, African Wildlife Foundation (AWF) and WWF. This...


Wayne had the same impact on the Ettal Research Workshops. He not only offered brilliant perspectives on the topic under discussion, but, equally important, he evoked insights from the participants that they had not previously considered. He created a synergism that energized each workshop and contributed to its success. His untimely death has created a void in the Ettal Workshops, and each of us who had the privilege to know him, still miss him immensely. It is with profound affection and admiration that we dedicate the proceedings of this workshop to his memory.
