 Nordic theory - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Nordic race was thought to be prevalent in northern Europe, especially, but not exclusively, among speakers of the Germanic languages, and was characterized by tall stature, wide shoulders, long head- and facial form, straight and fine blond, red, or light brown hair, and blue, grey or green eyes.
This theory held that speakers of the Indo-European languages ("Aryans") are an innately superior branch of humanity, responsible for most of its greatest achievements.
The term "Nordic" itself was initially proposed as a racial group by the French anthropologist Joseph Deniker.

 Aryan invasion theory - Wikipedia Light!   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-08)
The "Aryan Invasion Theory," abbreviated AIT, is a complex polemical construct used in the context of discussions of South Asian prehistory of the period 3000BC to 1000BC.
This theory is most associated with the linguist Friedrich Max Müller, who argued that the Aryans had migrated to India at around 1500 BC, from an earlier homeland in Bactria or further north, in the Central Asian steppe.
The theory that the original Aryans were northern Europeans who had migrated into India was used by some British imperialists as an ideological justification for British control of India, on the grounds that the founders of Indian culture were of the same race as the Anglo-Saxon invaders who established the British Raj.

 Nordic theory (via CobWeb/3.1 planetlab2.cs.umd.edu)   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-08)
For a given body of theory to be considered part of established knowledge, it is usually necessary for the theory to characterize a critical experiment, that is, an experimental result which cannot be predicted by any established theory.
A theory is also different from a physical law in that the former is a model of reality whereas the latter is a statement of what has been observed.
Unfortunately, the usage of the term is muddled by cases such as string theory and "theories of everything," each probably better characterized at present as a bundle of competing hypotheses for a protoscience.

 Nordic Culture > Nils Bohr, Danish physicist - Scandinavica.com
The Danish physicist developed the theory that electrons orbit around the nucleus of the atom, and also set the foundations of Quantum Mechanics.
After receiving his doctorate from Copenhagen University in 1911 he joined the famous physicist Ernest Rutherford (called the "father of nuclear physics"), and at the age of 27 he published his theory of the hydrogen atom, on which he introduced the idea of electrons traveling in orbits around the nucleus of the atom.
Based on Bohr's "Theory of Complementarity", in 1927 German physicist Werner Heisenberg and Niels Bohr formulated the "Copenhagen interpretation" of quantum mechanics, which is still considered today as the most widely-accepted specific interpretation of quantum mechanics.

Metz's and Gerard Genette's and Raymond Bellour's renditions of Benveniste's enunciation theory).
Even if we grant that evolutionary grand theory is one concerned more with identifying the convergent aspects of film fiction rather than with tracing its divergent forms, the biological framework still implies such a level of generality that one may risk losing sight of the film altogether.
The theory's failure to differentiate between the stylistic, formal, and narrative techniques which the individual text materializes thus represents a serious obstacle to the accretion of our knowledge of the specificity of the filmic medium.

While it was true that a "true" Nordic (Nordic genotype) could not be distinguished from a "pseudo" Nordic (Nordic only in physical type) it seemed reasonable (at least to Guenther) to presume that where one found a higher incidence of Nordic morphological traits one would find a higher incidence of Nordic psychic traits.
Actually the elements of a far more profound theory are to be discerned in the few surviving books that mark the last dynamic phase of development of a concept of race free of the encumbrances of a hysterical Nordicism.

 Nazism - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Hitler's theories were not only attractive to Germans: people in positions of wealth and power in other nations are said to have seen them as beneficial.
These theories were used to justify a totalitarian political agenda of racialism, which grew to include the racist persecution of Jews while suppressing dissent.
Like other fascist regimes, the Nazi regime emphasized anti-communism, opposition to corporate interests not aligned with the state, uniting all workers to work for the common good, and the leader principle (Führerprinzip), a key element of fascist ideology in which the ruler is deemed to embody the political movement and the nation.

Sure, you can make systems like that (theory or combat systems), but they matter little to the world at large, they don't create much enjoyment in actual play, and sadly enough they're often forced on the Common Crowd by the fanatics who've put them together.

The Turku School in As Larp Grows Up in my opinion beautifully distills one substyle of the Nordic tradition, in which the gamemaster has a vision that he wants the participants to experience, and in which immersion is seen as the ultimate method for attaining this experience.
And, in all fairness, there is also an old guard in the Nordic tradition that's stuck in its ways, thinks that any rules are bad and is stuck on immersion as the holy grail without seeing potential in other forms of attaining the same experience or meaning from a game.

The Nordic region balanced security through a combination of NATO ties, neutralism, and special treaties, and low-voltage diplomacy to keep both superpowers at length.
The book uses materials from U.S. and Norwegian archives, summarizes the findings of Nordic secondary literature on security, and utilizes concepts borrowed from international relations theory in order to describe Nordic regional security cooperation and to provide a useful model of peaceful security.
To test for applicability in the Third World, the Nordic model is then compared to the regional integration system in Southeast Asia--the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN).
