Writing the history of psychiatry in the 20th century

Writing the history of psychiatry in the 20th century

As editors of the special issue, we try to summarize here the historiographic trends of the field. We argue that the field of research is accommodating the diversity of the institutional, social and political developments. But there is no narrative in sight which can explain the psychiatry of the 20th century, comparable to the authoritative coherence achieved for the 19th century. In contrast, the efforts to extend these narratives to the 20th century are largely missing the most impressive transformation of psychiatric treatment — and self-definition.

La neutralité de l’internet, un enjeu de communication

La neutralité de l’internet, un enjeu de communication

La Neutralité d'Internet peut apparaître comme une notion avant tout technique. Toutefois, derrière la question de l'équité du traitement des données, se jouent des rapports de force entre acteurs économiques (fournisseurs d'accès à Internet, fournisseurs de contenus et de services .) qui ont des implications sur l'accès aux contenus, l'innovation et l'unité de l'Internet.

Methods for Extracting Meta-Information from bibliographic databases

Methods for Extracting Meta-Information from bibliographic databases

Due to intensive growth of the electronically available publications, bibliographic databases have become widespread. They cover a large variety of knowledge fields and provide a fast access to the wide variety of data. At the same time they contain a wealth of hidden knowledge that requires steps of extra processing in order to infer it. In this work we focus on extraction of such meta knowledge from the research bibliographic databases by looking at them from sociolinguistic, text mining and bibliometric perspectives.

Zwischen Markt und Labor : die zwei Gesichter des Hermann Schenck

Zwischen Markt und Labor : die zwei Gesichter des Hermann Schenck

Unser Beitrag beschäftigt sich mit der Doppelfunktion, die Hermann Schenck in den 50er und 60er Jahren bekleidete: war er doch als VDEh-Vorsitzender (1950-1968) der eisenhüttenmännischen Praxis verpflichtet, während er als Professor an der RWTH Aachen (1951-1968) die „aus dem Stande der Empirie zur Wissenschaft“ erhobene Eisenhüttenkunde vertrat. In seinen zahlreichen Reden und Aufsätzen thematisierte Schenck selbst immer wieder kehrend die schwierige Wechselwirkung von Theorie und Praxis.
