Abstract

Discusses changes in mood, food intake and food choice associated with the menstrual cycle – food intake is generally increased in the pre‐menstrual phase but changes in food choice are not quite clear. The influence of the menstrual cycle on women′s mood and behaviour is so far poorly understood but popular beliefs about menstrual‐related “disabilities” still prevail. In our society, two important features of an ideal woman are: being nice and being slim, restraining temper and appetite. Putting the blame for relaxing this restraint on physiological factors seems easier to handle than questioning the ideal.

Differences and similarities in results as well as advantages and disadvantages of both methods are discussed.

Abstract

In previous efforts the author has examined the various “men” of economics or human‐nature assumptions of “economic thinkers” as a way of treating the history and philosophy of the discipline. Here, under the thematic penumbra of “Man as the Centre of the Social Economy”, and hoping to incorporate the fruits of further inquiry into the matter, those “creatures” and their fashioners are critically reconsidered with a view towards arriving at a more adequate conception of a truly human “economiser” and – accordingly – science of human economy. In Part II, having presented homo oeconomicus in both his/her “impudent” and “honourable” versions, we shall attempt to transcend homo socioeconomicus and even our own (former) homo oeconomicus humanus as well.
