Security and Terrorism in the Modern World: Social Science and Legal Perspectives
Law and Psychology Visiting Scholar Program
April 8-10, 2013
University of Nebraska–Lincoln (http://psychology.unl.edu/)
Each year the visiting scholars program includes a “think-tank” during which preeminent scholars come together on the UNL campus to meet and discuss specific thematic topics. Faculty from thePsychology Department and from the Law School at UNL will serve as discussants for the talks. The goal is to promote interdisciplinary communication and debate specific controversies that concern security and terrorism in the modern world.
Becker on Otto Rank
"Rank's thought always spanned several fields of knowledge: when he talked about, say, anthropological data and you expected anthropological insight, you got something else, something more. Living as we do in an era of hyperspecialization we have lost the expectation of this kind of delight: the experts give us manageable thrills—if they thrill us at all."
