The purpose of this book is to help examinees that will be sitting for the new MCAT test format as from Spring 2015 to prepare for the sections on Social and Behavioral Sciences which encompass psychological, social, and biological foundations of behavior. The questions in the new sections are based on knowledge of important introductory psychology and sociology concepts that relate to mental processes and behavior. The new changes expect acquisition of information and skills in areas that were previously not tested on MCAT. There is also the realization that the 21st Century medical student and doctor need to be knowledgeable not only about facts related to disease, but equally important, about the psycho-social environment that interacts with the individual patient to produce or mitigate disease. The book is titled "MCAT Pioneers" because we are happy and proud to be pioneers in utilizing a biopsycho-social (BPS) lens to assist MCAT applicants in understanding and integrating the concept of health and disease as a product of the inter-play among biological (e.g., genetic/epigenetic, molecular, cellular and hormonal), psychological (e.g., our thoughts, perceptions, attitudes, reactions and behaviors) and social (e.g., institutional, cultural, political and socio-economic) environments. This yields a comprehensive and unified multi-factorial approach to health and disease thus preparing the future medical student to draw on this understanding in his/her interactions with and management of patients within a context rather than in isolation. Above all, the book will aid examines who aim to achieve high scores in the new MCAT format.

Mit seinem philosophischen Hauptwerk, der "Theorie der ethischen Gefühle", legte Adam Smith den Grundstein für die Ausbildung einer Moralphilosophie, die sich ausdrücklich auf die Ideen der Sympathie und der Solidargemeinschaft beruft. Die Gründung der Moral auf den Begriff des Mitgefühls oder der "Sympathie" steht im Zentrum des philosophischen Hauptwerks von Adam Smith (1723-1790), der 1759 publizierten Schrift "The Theory of Moral Sentiments". Methodisch orientiert an den Werken der englischen Empiristen Shaftesbury, Mandeville, Hutcheson und Hume, untersucht Smith die Moralsysteme der Vergangenheit, kritisiert die Bemühungen seiner Zeitgenossen um eine Grundlegung der Moralphilosophie und nimmt so zukünftige wichtige Ansätze auf dem Gebiet der Ethik vorweg; sein Werk ist ein Sammelplatz heterogenster, scheinbar konträrer Richtungen der Moralphilosophie. Es kombiniert unterschiedliche Theorien zu einem bemerkenswerten System des "sittlich Richtigen", das sich nicht an Kriterien wie dem der Nützlichkeit ausrichtet, sondern an der Konvention des ausgebildeten Mitgefühls. Der zentrale Begriff ist dabei "Sympathie", ergänzt durch die Einführung der Idee eines unparteiischen Zuschauers, in den sich laut Smith jeder einzelne immer dann versetzt, wenn er moralische Entscheidungen zu treffen hat: "Der impartial spectator läßt die Individuen überlegen, daß sie an der Stelle desjenigen stehen könnten, dem sie ihre Sympathie zuwenden. Daraus entsteht nach Smith ein Motiv, aktuell so zu handeln, wie man an dessen Stelle behandelt werden wollte" (B. Priddat). "The Theory of Moral Sentiments" wurde mehrfach überarbeitet und ergänzt; diese Ausgabe bietet den Text in der letzten Fassung nach der 6. Auflage von 1790 in der deutschen Übersetzung von W. Eckstein.
