Grundlage der Forschung in den Natur- und teilweise auch in den Geistes- und Sozialwissenschaften ist das Experiment. Auf welche ausgefallenen Ideen die Forscher dabei manchmal kommen, zeigt der amerikanische Wissenschaftshistoriker hier an zahlreichen Beispielen. In den 10 Kapiteln geht es um Experimente mit Strom, um die Sinne, das Gedächtnis, den Schlaf, um Tiere, das Sexualleben des Menschen, um Neugeborene, Ausscheidungen des Menschen, um den Gehorsam, den Tod und das Ende der Welt, ein breites Spektrum an Fachgebieten also. Dabei kommt Frankensteins Labor ebenso zur Sprache wie hypersexuelle Kater oder der Vergleich von Pepsi und Coca Cola. Und man kann Lesen, dass der 1. Elefant, dem LSD verabreicht wurde, an der Überdosis starb, der 2. kein verstärktes Sexualverhalten zeigte. Bei allen Experimenten finden sich Literaturangaben, die Zugang zur Primärliteratur verschaffen. Ein sehr kurzweiliges Lesebuch über Wege und Abwege der Forschung, das in allen (Schul-)Bibliotheken sicher auf Interesse stoßen wird. (2 S)

Mehrere Jahre musste der österreichische Psychologe Viktor E. Frankl in deutschen Konzentrationslagern verbringen. Doch trotz all des Leids, das er dort sah und erlebte, kam er zu dem Schluss, dass es selbst an Orten der größten Unmenschlichkeit möglich ist, einen Sinn im Leben zu sehen. Seine Erinnerungen, die er in diesem Buch festhielt und die über Jahrzehnte Millionen von Menschen bewegten, sollen weder Mitleid erregen noch Anklage erheben. Sie sollen Kraft zum Leben geben.
