4 Reconstruction After having sampled trees, dated tree-rings and cleaned tree-ring data, Rob and Miloš were finally at the stage where they could discover how the climate in Scotland was before the early 1700s, when methodical thermometer-based records began. Dendroclimatologists refer to the work of re-enacting past climate from tree-ring data as ‘reconstructing’ and the resulting graph a ‘climate reconstruction’. As told in previous chapters, Rob and Miloš built upon Hughes’s pioneering reconstruction of past temperatures in Scotland, which reached the

3 Reconstruction and retribution: Clouzot’s post-war films Despite the ultimate recognition of Le Corbeau as one of the most significant films made in France during the occupation, its caustic satire of authority and production by the German company Continental Films led to Clouzot and his associates being branded as collaborators and banned from working in the film industry after France was liberated in 1944. This chapter examines the four films with which Clouzot relaunched his career on his return to film-making in 1947 (having effectively been excluded from the

A Deweyan vision of democracy and social research 
Malcolm P. Cutchin

. Yet Dewey’s theory of habit is central to his philosophy and has been mostly overlooked by social scientists. To complement and contribute to the growth of social scientific scholarship in the pragmatic tradition, especially one concerned with democratic processes of social inquiry and social reconstruction, I attempt to flesh out some fundamental dimensions of Dewey’s work on habit. I suggest that an understanding of the central role of habit in Dewey’s body of work opens up the discourse to his associated ideas of embodiment, imagination and community – all of
