We briefly discuss the relationship between the biological knowledge and the methodological issues related to traitbased ecological analyses. We provide illustrative examples and argue that the biological novelty of trait-based research is generally less than expected - while new information is mostly coming from data management and methodology.

In the 1960s, students attending the Hungarian Academy of Fine Arts – especially female students of sculpture — were socialised in a strange way. This ‘strangeness’ was generated by the latent tension between contradictory values, conflicting motivations and interests — and women were exposed to these dualities a great deal more than men. Being students of sculpture only amplified the effect on them, and overshadowed it with negative stereotypes. The case study sheds light on the latent motives of the rejection of a diploma work made by a female art student, Ildikó Várnagy in socialist Hungary. It examines the case, in the frame of art education and sculpture in the Sixties, as well as gender bias at the Art Academy in Hungary, and also outlines the effects of this incident on her later carrier as an artist.

In this article the Author provides a new interpretation of sin and free will in Dante's Comedy. She analyses first of all the „veglio” of Crethe, the speech of Marco Lombardo and the vision of the „femina balba”, showing the new motives in the encounter of Dante with a new situation. In the Paradise on Earth every tension is absent: peace replaces the „war” of proceeding and piety.

Summary In this paper I read Géza Gárdonyi's novel, The Eclipse of the Crescent Moon, as a narrative of the Hungarian nation. After surveying the reception of the novel in the past century, pointing out the difficulties Hungarian literary criticism was facing when dealing with The Eclipse, I proceed to read the novel itself as a text that depicts an “imagined community' of Hungarians. I argue that while the Hungarian Self is imagined as an innocent child in the novel, the Turkish Other becomes depicted as a cunning animal dominated by primary instincts. I read The Eclipse as the story of expulsion from Paradise, invaded by the Turkish snake, focusing on the different paths the novel's main characters, Gergely and Éva, take, with the aim of analysing the feminine and masculine aspects of the nation imagined by the novel through their diverging stories.
