The Translated Fragment of the Book: Emotions
in Command: A Naturalistic Study of Institutional Dominance
by Frank K. Salter (Oxford Univ. Press: Oxford et al., 1995)
Kamilla F. Urakaeva, Olga S. Lopaeva.
One of the most impressive talks given
on the Siberian Indian Summer School was the brief overview
of the investigations of Frank K. Salter on institutional
dominance. For this reason we decided to learn more about
his investigations by translating one of his book chapters.
The selection of the chapter for translation was guided by
the personal author's recommendation. Now, when we did it,
we confirm the author's suggestion that 7th chapter seems
to contain the most interesting points of the book. In particular,
it is very important for understanding the methodology of
behavioral studies. Doing the translations, we are often facing
such a problem as ornate language that makes it a difficult
tusk to adapt the text to Russian lay readers. Nevertheless,
it seems to us that, finally, we managed to complete our work
without the lose of important information. Besides, we gained
a lot in terms of understanding scientific language and improving
our English. That is why we are greatly thankful to the author
and wish him more exciting researches. (See two variants of
translation in Appendixes).
