    This study examines steroid production in fathers watching their children compete, extending previous research of vicarious success or failure on men’s hormone levels. Salivary testosterone and cortisol levels were measured in 18 fathers watching their children play in a soccer tournament.

    Human failings and frustrations.Nigel Rodgers & Mel Thompson - 2012 - The Philosophers' Magazine 56 (56):81-86.
    Heidegger’s disastrously whole-hearted commitment to Nazism was not a simple political mistake. We need to ask what in his childhood and early career underlay his powerful and persistent feeling of Blut und Boden, blood and soil, that led him to support volkisch (nationalist/racist) calls for a charismatic national leader.
