    Full Text Available Dal punto di vista sociologico, una crisi economica non è solo causa di dolorose conseguenze per le persone: essa rappresenta l’effetto di una più ampia crisi politica e sociale. Con questo presupposto, Alain Touraine prova a guardare al dopo crisi e, attraverso una situazione definita post-sociale, offre strumenti per l’osservazione di nuovi attori. L’articolo descrive alcuni passaggi essenziali di questa analisi, inquadrandoli nel disegno teorico che caratterizza il pensiero del sociologo francese.

    Karlsen, Mads Peter

    2014-01-01

    This article examines the relationship between materialism, dialectics, and theology in Alain Badiou's work. The first three sections of the article focus on Badiou's reading of Hegelian dialectics in his 1982 work, Theory of the Subject. The first section accounts for Badiou's splitting of Hegel...... into an idealist and materialist dialectic, and presents an exposition of the latter. The second section outlines Badiou's critical analysis of the theological model implicit in Hegel's dialectics. The third section investigates the core of this criticism through a discussion of Badiou's reading of the “negation...... of the negation.” The remaining four sections examine the anti-dialectical interpretation of the Christ-event that Badiou presents in his book Saint Paul. Here the article illustrates how Badiou's insistence on separating the death of Christ from the resurrection is linked to his rejection of the doctrines...

    Full Text Available The present study analyzes the role of the process of memory recovery in the Uruguayan contemporary literary space. The article focuses on the dynamics of recovery of the past in the work of the Montevidean Hugo Burel (born in 1951, especially in his novel Tijeras de Plata (2003. The first part of our study analyses how the novel describes – in a symbolic form – the geo-social changes that have characterised the Uruguayan space from the second half of the 20th century (decentralization of urban population; gradual decline in the social, cultural and economic structure of many central neighbourhoods. We examine the narrative forms used by Burel (short stories within a frame in the light of these phenomena, and consider in turn another type of fragmentation, of an extra-literary nature:  investigating nature of the relationship between literature and the idiosyncrasy of Uruguayan social world: we refer to a frequent sensation of “fracture with the past” that envelops Uruguayan society. In the second part of the article we demonstrate why Tijeras de Plata can be considered as a “literary tool” to recover a missing past: the novel develops as a “story of past memories”, focusing on the process of impoverishment that affects many urban zones of Montevideo. On the other hand, the double operation of rescue (first the restoration of the individual memories related to the neighbourhood, then the revival of the prosperity once banished from the city suggests an evocation of a past of happiness and can be considered as literary means of rescuing that old world form oblivion. In conclusion, it is possible to read the novel as a metaphorical reflection on the decline of a “lost country”.

    Full Text Available Current article analyzes the influence of Alain Touraine’s ideas and theories on discourse on contemporary sociology and political sociology. How do structural transformations of society, processes of social fragmentation and atomization influence the essence of democracy, public consciousness, interaction between citizens and the state? Such global questions pose difficult tasks for scholars, who need to revise and renew the traditional approaches to be able to respond to challenges of our time. Controversial and deep heritage of Alain Touraine doesn’t give answers to all questions, but it’s able to generate new kinds of discourse in sociological community and this is the reason it’s still valuable.

    Richard Dawkins will speak on biology, Gerard ‘t Hooft will focus on physics, and Alain Connes will discuss mathematics. CERN scientists probe ever-deeper levels of matter and their interactions, but can we say that the patterns they see are truly fundamental? Does the universe obey the same laws throughout? Since mathematical constructions can be true in the absence of any relation to the physical world, is mathematics more fundamental than physics? Extraterrestrial life would probably look much different from that on Earth, but natural selection still be fundamental to their evolution?

  17. Alain Badiou’s ideas about causes of evil

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    2016-11-01

    Full Text Available Alain Badiou’s philosophical views study is an important philosophical task. This author is one of the most profound philosophers of our time. Especially important is the study of Badiou’s ideas which helps to determine grounds of destructive phenomena in contemporary society. There is a number of researchers who are interested in Badiou’s philosophy. For instance, Kathleen R. Kesson, James G. Henderson, Oliver Marchart, Hollis Phelps, Viktor Okorokov, Vitaliy Kosyhin, Svitlana Solovyova, and others. However, the researchers usually do not pay big attention to the study of Badiou’s ideas about causes of evil. This article is aimed at the analysis and explication of such ideas. It has been proved that Badiou describes the idea that evil manifests itself as an obstacle in processes of the truth. Badiou considers that there are subjects of evil in society. According to Alain Badiou, the subjects of evil interrupt processes of the truth by their own personal interests. It has been shown in the article that Badiou believes in the existence of four procedures that produce the truth. It is politics, poem, math and love. In politics, the goodness is equality. In arts, it exemplifies the invention of new forms. In science, the goodness constitutes free thought. In love, the good means the understanding of the needs of other person. Badiou considers that a process of the truth has three dimensions. The event that caused the creation of something new is the first dimension of the process of the truth. At this dimension evil appears as ‘mask or terror.’ This kind of evil tries to prove that the new one is not better then the old one. According to Badiou, fidelity to the event is the second dimension of a process of the truth. In this dimension evil appears as ‘betrayal.’  The truth’s strictly speaking is the third dimension of a process of the truth. In this dimension evil appears as ‘catastrophe.’ This kind of evil tries to identify

  19. Can Cinema Be Thought: Alain Badiou and the Artistic Condition

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Alex Ling

    2006-10-01

    Full Text Available Alain Badioursquo;s philosophy is generally understood to be a fundamentally mathematical enterprise, his principle categories of being, appearing, and truth being themselves thought only though specific scientific events. However the event itselfmdash;which constitutes the nexal point of his so-called lsquo;materialist dialecticrsquo;mdash;is contrarily thought not through mathematics but through art. And yet despite the fundamental role art plays in his philosophy Badioursquo;s lsquo;inaestheticrsquo; writings seem unduly proscriptive, allowing room principally for the expressly lsquo;literalrsquo; arts while eschewing for the most part those manifold arts which have little recourse to the letter. Badioursquo;s polemical writings on cinema are both symptomatic and serve as the most extreme example of this position, his cinema being one which wavers precariously on the border of art and non-art. This paper accordingly questions whether cinema can truly occupy a place in Badioursquo;s inaesthetics. I argue the hegemony of the letter in Badioursquo;s inaesthetics to be ultimately one of convenience and suggest that if cinematic truths are to be registered Badioursquo;s understanding of cinema as (what I interpret to be an art of dis-appearance must be rejected. I conclude by contending the oppressive literality of Badioursquo;s philosophy to be symptomatic of its mathematical basismdash;a paradoxical position insofar as the very non-mathematical nature of art allows for evental thoughtmdash;the consequence of which being that Badiou regrettably neglects by and large those manifold illiterate arts that might otherwise serve to augment his thought.br /

    The tragic death of Alain Garrigue, his wife Christine, and their two children Simon and Marjorie, victims of the Charm-el-Cheikh air disaster in Egypt, is a great shock, and a source of immense sadness to all of us. We will remember Alain both as a colleague and as a friend. He communicated to all his «joie de vivre», and he established a strong team spirit within the group which he led at the LPSC Grenoble. His career as an engineer took him through CNES (Centre National d'Etudes Spatiales), RENAULT and CEA in Grenoble. His arrival at the LPSC brought a new dimension to the mechanics group, where Alain developed activities in cryogenics. Alain brought indispensable theoretical knowledge to the LPSC Atlas group. His participation enabled the laboratory to progress in development of proximity cryogenics for the ATLAS electromagnetic calorimeter. He directed technical activity and coordinated construction of this equipment. His attention to technical details never distracted him from a gl...

    Full Text Available The article analyzes the conflict as one of the basic elements of social reality, immediate source and mechanism of modern social changes. The author distinguishes the classification basics of the modern theories of conflict in Western social science, predicts the further development of social studies in problem field of conflict, and formulates the main provisions of the modern conflictological discourse. Are determined, the specific manifestations of the conflict in terms of contemporary realities, trends identified value orientations of modern society through the prism of conceptual views Alain Touraine. Disclosed concepts “subject”, “historicity”, “social movements”, “value”, the nature of social interactions, marked cultural patterns. This historicity is not understood as set of cultural values, accumulated over a certain historical time, integrated into the structure of society, as well as a set of tools with which this integration has occurred, a sort of tool of formation of various social practices that are in demand in a particular historical period. The study shows that the leading role in the discourse conflictological Alain Touraine assigned a sociological study of social changes that are going on in time and space. The conflict as a factor of social change in the theory of A. Touraine has more descriptive as fully concentrated on the study of a new historical stage of development of society and the role of social movements.

    Full Text Available Sexual minority workers often choose to hide their true sexual identity to avoid discriminative action towards them. This leads to their invisible position in the workers presentation. Hiding true sexual identity of sexual minority workers creates exclusive relationship between heteronormative majority workers and non-heteronormative minority workers because of unavailability of intensive and personal interactions between them. Thus it makes sexual minority workers are excluded from the workers presentation and preserving discrimination based on sexuality. Using mathematical theory formulated by Alain Badiou, this writing tries to propose a strategy for sexual minority workers to be visible in the workers presentation through coming out action as an event. Coming out in the end is a strategy to fight for equality and an action for discrimination based on sexuality to end.

    Full Text Available The body of articles and books that discuss the topic of the end of work is extensive and diverse. This article tries to demonstrate, through a reading of Alain Touraine, that the debate, despite being portrayed as recent, was opened in general terms in the late 1960s. Another concern of the article is to attack the way in which debate on the end of work places the discussion on the plane of immediate empirical facts, distancing itself from reflection, which provides the necessary ontological analysis that ought to accompany our understanding of the category of work. Finally, the article attempts to underscore how in the touranian debate on the end of work there is a reading of the crisis of unionism or the loss of centrality of the labor movement in contemporary capitalism.

  10. Two Paths to Infinite Thought: Alain Badiou and Jacques Derrida on the Question of the Whole

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Lynn Sebastian Purcel

    2012-05-01

    Full Text Available This essay defends an idea that is no longer fashionable: that there is a whole. The motivation for a defense of this notion has nothing to do with intellectual conservatism or a penchant for Hegel. Rather, what we hope to establish is a second path into what Alain Badiou has called the ‘Cantorian Revolution’. In order to open this path we undertake a three-fold task. First, we deconstruct Badiou’s onto-logical project by isolating the suppressed significance of Ernst Zermelo. This point allows us to recover a Cantorian possibility for addressing the infinite as an inconsistent whole. Second, we turn to work by the logician Graham Priest in order to remove the absurdity of discussing true contradictions. Finally, we return to Jacques Derrida’s early work on Husserl in order to chart a phenomenological path to an affirmation of an inconsistent whole. We close, then, with the implications for contemporary philosophy.

  12. Samuel Beckett’s Trilogy, Alain Badiou and the Subtraction from the State and the Community

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    María J. López

    2013-03-01

    Full Text Available The subtraction from forms of community and resistance to figures of authority that we find in Samuel Beckett’s Trilogy can be approached in the light of Alain Badiou’s critique of communitarian ethics and of the administrative and management function of the state, in which the individual is considered as a subset. It can also be seen as informed by the particular historical manifestations of political totalitarianism and authoritarianism that characterized the European context from which the Trilogy emerged. Drawing on Badiou’s own readings of Beckett and on Andrew Gibson’s revaluation of Badiou and Beckett, and as opposed to prevalent interpretations of the Trilogy that have underlined its despairing character and sole concern with the isolated ego, I would like to approach Molloy, Malone and the Unnamable as unconsenting and persistent individuals that refuse to become part of a community, reject established knowledges and resist to the conformity and obedience demanded by the state.

  13. From History to Memory: Alain Resnais’ and Marguerite Duras’ Hiroshima mon amour

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Sarah French

    2008-12-01

    Full Text Available This paper examines the representation of history and memory in Alain Resnais’ and Marguerite Duras’ 1959 film Hiroshima mon amour. It argues that the film’s privileging of subjective remembrance reflects a broader cultural interest in using memory as a counter discourse to established history. The widely documented cultural preoccupation with memory became particularly prominent in the early 1980s. However, Hiroshima mon amour can be read as an important early example of a film that predates the contemporary ‘memory boom’. For Resnais and Duras, the magnitude of the devastation in Hiroshima exceeds the limits of filmic representation. Their solution to the problem that the historic event is unrepresentable is to approach the event indirectly while focusing on an individual traumatic memory. Through a close analysis and critique of the film I argue that the film’s emphasis on individual memory validates the legitimacy of the personal narrative but problematically subsumes the political events and displaces history from the discursive realm. I also suggest that problems emerge in the film’s depiction of its traumatised female subject. While Hiroshima mon amour represents a complex female subjectivity and interiority, the process of remembrance depicted deprives the woman of agency and renders her trapped within a compulsive repetition of the past.

  14. Las dos paradojas de Alain Wisner. Antropotecnología y ergología

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Yves Schwartz

    2012-12-01

    Full Text Available Two paradoxes seem to appear throughout Alain Wisner’s Anthropotechnology. The first one, from his studies on human labour, leads him to assert that all human beings have equal potentialities, while maintaining at the same time that this universality emerges through history and inheritance which are always specific. The second one leads him to request the cooperation of various areas of human sciences, but without a critical approach, as if they could disregard the consequences of the first paradox.Firstly, it is suggested how it is possible, through the ergological approach, to clear up the first paradox by going deeper into this concept of activity, largely inherited from the wisnerian ergonomy. From an anthropological point of view, it is possible to define live as a universal effort for partly redesigning the frame of local norms which surround human beings and groups.Secondly, the question is : through which crucial scenes the «setting in history» of this universality is developed? Three knots of this « setting in history » are successively considered: body, technical activity and social building of the various spaces where living together proved efficient.In accordance with these points, the basis for a treatment of the second paradox seem yet to be given: if human activity is a permanent crucible for « renormalisations », it constantly reproduces social configurations so that concepts and categories of the human sciences are always partly unprepared in regard to them. Then the question is: how this concept of activity which runs across them all is refracted or taken into account by these sciences? To conclude: if this paper entirely assumes the first paradox, it cannot accept the second one.

  18. From meta-politics to the politisation of the concept: a critical reading on Alain Badiou’s communist hypothesis and the problematic distinction between philosophy and politics

    Full Text Available In the present text I expose Alain Badiou’s post-marxist perspective elaborated in Circonstances 5: l'hypothese communiste and I present a critique to this perspective from the Lacanian concepts used by Badiou himself. This allows me, in a second moment, to clear some misunderstandings between the philosophical and the political in his device of thought and, in this way, to circumscribe the specificity of the contribution of each one to think current problems.

    Full Text Available The following paper deals with the relationship of the French philosopher Alain Badiou with the question of the common. Taking as a starting point the way some philosophers from the 20th century have tackled this subject, we propose an interpretation of Badiou’s work as a project that intends to recover philosophy as universal and egalitarian practice for learning the thought of being in common, taking as a paradigm the formal language of mathematics and poetic language.El siguiente trabajo aborda la relación del filósofo francés Alain Badiou con la cuestión de lo común. Partiendo del modo en que algunos filósofos del siglo XX han tratado esta cuestión, proponemos una lectura de la obra de Alain Badiou como proyecto que pretende recuperar la filosofía como práctica universal e igualitaria para el aprendizaje del pensamiento del ser en común tomando como paradigma el lenguaje formal de las matemáticas y el lenguaje poético.

  20. Rancièrean Atomism: Clarifying the Debate between Jacques Rancière and Alain Badiou

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Joseph M. Spencer

    2015-12-01

    Full Text Available In the late 1970s and the 1980s, a number of radical left political theorists focused their philosophical attention on the relevance of ancient atomism, revitalizing a tradition that went back to Karl Marx's work on his dissertation. This essay looks at the uses of atomism by two thinkers in particular, Jacques Rancière and Alain Badiou, in order to see how their discussions of and references to ancient materialism help to shed light on their fundamental disagreements about the nature of community and equality.First, this paper argues that what Badiou and Rancière most obviously share in their assessments of atomism is a negative judgment regarding the post-swerve constitution of the world, while what most obviously distinguishes their positions is their differing judgments regarding the preswerve rain of the atoms in the void (which Badiou assesses negatively and Rancière positively. Becoming clear both about how Badiou and Rancière respond to what comes before and after the atomistic swerve helps to clarify an implicit response on Rancière’s part to what has become Badiou’s chief objection to Rancière’s political theory. Second, this paper argues that the fact that Badiou assesses both what comes before and what comes after the swerve as negative, while Rancière assesses only what comes after the swerve as negative (because he assesses the pre-swerve rain of the atoms in the void positively, makes clear that their most essential point of difference concerns the status of the swerve that mediates between before and after. Working through the complexities of Badiou’s analysis of the swerve and uncovering Rancière’s extremely subtle analysis of the swerve helps to clarify a major aspect of what has become Rancière’s chief criticism of Badiou’s conception of philosophy.

  1. A contribuição de Alain Touraine para o debate sobre sujeito e democracia latino-americanos

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Carlos A. Gadea

    2005-11-01

    Full Text Available O presente trabalho analisa diversas contribuições teóricas e analíticas do sociólogo francês Alain Touraine em relação às realidades políticas, sociais e culturais da América Latina. Partindo da idéia de que as principais preocupações desse autor fazem referência à dinâmica da modernidade latino-americana, procura-se compreender como esse tópico complementa-se com observações sobre a democracia e o sujeito social. O que interessa destacar é como, para Touraine, a modernidade latino-americana caracteriza-se a partir de uma inevitável tensão: a que se estabelece entre "universo instrumental" e "universo simbólico", correlato de uma imagem dual que continuamente se faz presente, a racionalização e a subjetivação. A partir disso, Touraine dedica-se a analisar a potencialidade política e social subjacente às idéias de "sujeito" e "ator social". Por fim, interessa aqui destacar as contribuições que se pode perceber nas concretas análises de movimentos sociais que hoje participam da heterogênea cena latino-americana, a saber, o movimento neozapatista de Chiapas, o Movimento dos Trabalhadores Rurais Sem-terra e, em um sentido mais genérico, os movimentos urbanos, ecológicos, negros, jovens, de mulheres e de educação intercultural.

  3. A dádiva e o terceiro paradigma nas ciências sociais: as contribuições antiutilitaristas de Alain Caillé

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Paulo Henrique Martins

    Full Text Available Resumo A palavra dádiva tem recepção ambivalente nas ciências sociais, no Brasil, na medida em que sugere, numa leitura superficial, um entendimento religioso e gratuito da doação. Mas a dádiva é um sistema teórico relacional que revela a complexidade das relações sociais no passado e no presente. Este reconhecimento levou Alain Caillé a propor a dádiva como um terceiro paradigma que seria mais complexo que aqueles marcados pelas tradições do individualismo e do holismo. A análise das contribuições deste autor é fundamental para se entender as tendências contemporâneas do debate que é crucial no desenvolvimento da escola francesa de sociologia fundada por Émile Durkheim.

    2017-06-01

    Full Text Available This article aims to give a psychological interpretation to Alain de Botton’s novels On Love and The Course of Love, doubling the philosophical take on love that runs in the background of the novels. Robert Sternberg’s triangular theory of love will be applied to de Botton’s two novels, in an attempt to reach an understanding of love by means of psychological deconstruction, following the dynamic of the three components of the love triangle: passion, intimacy and decision \\ commitment. References will also be made to Sternberg’s complementary theories on love, i.e. the theory that conceptualizes love as a story and the theory of love as a socio-cultural artefact.Key words: love, psychology, triangular theory, love story, cultureAlain de Botton’s book On Love, presented to the readers as a novel telling the love story of Chloe and the narrator, is a full-circle account that unfolds between two plane flights: on the first flight, from Paris to London, the two future lovers are seated one next to the other, and they meet and fall in love; the reverse flight, from Paris to London, takes the couple back home from a trip and ends with their break-up. The exact punctuation of the beginning and end of the romantic relationship is symptomatic of the whole structure of the book. The clearly delineated chapters and paragraphs correspond to as many moments in the couple’s relationship, thus allowing us to recreate with accuracy the milestones of their love story. The mere story-telling is doubled by the narrator’s voice that disassembles every event up to its inner detailed parts and deliversthe thoughts and rationale behind his actions. The reader is not left to guess, but discovers actively, together with the narrator, a keenly performed radiography of love.

  5. Por uma sociologia dos etnométodos para compreender o mundo da educação: contribuições de Alain Coulon

    Marilia Pontes Sposito

    Full Text Available Resumo O texto apresenta entrevista com Alain Coulon, pesquisador francês responsável pelo desenvolvimento dos estudos em etnometodologia aplicados à educação na sociologia francesa. O caráter inovador de sua linha de investigação, inspirada nas formulações de Garfinkel e Cicourel, permitiu um conjunto de pesquisas sobre os estudantes universitários em momento de transformação do ensino superior francês. A partir dos anos 1980, a universidade francesa sofreu processo intenso de abertura de oportunidades de acesso, reunindo um público amplo e heterogêneo de estudantes que demandava novas abordagens para a compreensão de sua experiência acadêmica. Esse universo de investigação eleito por Alain Coulon constituiu o material empírico que permitiu ao autor a produção não só de novas metodologias de pesquisa como a formulação de novas categorias de análise, elucidativas dessas novas realidades. Dentre elas destaca-se a ideia de afiliação. Sua influência teórica disseminou-se por vários países, mediante tradução de seus principais trabalhos para o alemão, inglês, japonês, dentre outros idiomas. No Brasil, seu diálogo com pesquisadores ofereceu apoio à criação de observatórios da vida estudantil em diferentes universidades, bem como ações sistematizadas de afiliação e sucesso acadêmico, revelando-se um caminho promissor para a pesquisa. Diante da expansão recente do ensino superior brasileiro, sobretudo a partir das políticas afirmativas, os desafios para a pesquisa são significativos e podem ser enfrentados de maneira mais densa se forem fortalecidos os diálogos com pesquisadores que se voltaram para a compreensão dessas novas realidades, tendo em vista a superação das desigualdades estruturais e persistentes que configuram historicamente a universidade.

En étudiant l'oeuvre d'Alain Saint-Ogan les membres de la SOCERLID construisent un discours qui oscille entre érudition pré-scientifique et mythification de certaines périodes et auteurs. Poursuivant un objectif de légitimation de la bande dessinée par la réhabilitation des oeuvres lues pendant leur enfance, ils font de Saint-Ogan un des pivots de leur réflexion historique jusqu'à lui attribuer la place de "père" de la bande dessinée française. Nous retracerons le cheminement d'une pensée historique encore influente dans les représentations actuelles de la bande dessinée.The work done by the Société civile d'étude et de recherche sur les littératures dessinées (SOCERLID on the cartoonist Alain Saint-Ogan (1895-1974 during the 1960's and 1970's gives a glimpse of how such learned societies specialised in comics constructed the medium's background history. The SOCERLID's studies on Saint-Ogan demonstrated a learned but still unscientific method as well as a tendency to build myth around some periods and authors. The society's members strove to legitimate comics through the rehabilitation of what they read as children : Saint-Ogan thus became one crux of their historical consideration, being even refered to as the "father" of french comics. This article will unravel their historical construction still influent in nowadays representations of comic art in France.

The term life writing is a particularly useful categorization for this text, since Hungarian critics have referred to it variously, sometimes in the same article, as ‘memoir, novel, autobiographical novel, documentary novel, memorial records’(memoár, regény, önéletrajzi regény, dokumentum regény, emlékiratok. I will consider how Polcz narrativizes her identity in the two parts of her story. In the first, writing about her young married life with an abusive alcoholic husband during wartime Transylvania in 1944-45 she is unable to step outside the conventional romance plot, narrating her life in terms of the most conservative conceptualization of heterosexual femininity and wifehood, premised on self-renunciation. At the same time, she subverts her surface story of masochistic other-centeredness with manipulation of gaps and secrets, creating an ongoing tension between the concealed and revealed.

    Full Text Available Resumo: Refletir sobre a democracia na contemporaneidade é, sem dúvida, um exercício legítimo e indispensável. A expressão “democracia”, ao longo dos tempos, foi apropriada por diferentes grupos e, evidentemente, encerra sentidos, formas, intenções e projetos societários distintos. No imaginário popular, a democracia está geralmente associada à presença de eleição de governantes ou de representantes. Porém, esse é apenas um procedimento formal que, por si só, não expressa o seu conteúdo. Logo, surge a necessidade de qualificar o termo, caso contrário, pode-se contribuir para a banalização e o esvaziamento de seu significado. É preciso saber de que democracia se está falando, bem como distinguir entre a forma, ou os procedimentos, e o seu conteúdo. Diante disso, explorar a concepção de democracia e de sujeito sob o ponto de vista de Touraine foi o objetivo do estudo que deu origem a este artigo, sem, no entanto, a pretensão de esgotar o debate. Dentre os resultados da pesquisa, constatou-se que só há democracias mediante a existência de sujeitos individuais e coletivos que assumem a criação da própria vida, que reconhecem a pluralidade de interesses e valores a serem negociados no espaço público e que respeitam a diversidade de culturas, de modo a fomentar a comunicação entre os diferentes.Abstract: To reflect on the democracy on contemporaneous days is with no doubt an essential exercise. Different groups have been using the expression “democracy”, during these times, and, obviously, it contains feelings, forms, intentions and distinct sociable projects. On popular imaginary, the democracy is usually associated to the election of representatives for governing. However, this is only a formal proceeding that, by itself, does not express its content. Consequently, there is the need of qualifying the term; otherwise, we may contribute to a vulgarization and a deflation of its meaning. It is necessary to know exactly what democracy we are talking about, as well as to distinguish among the form, the procedures, and the content of the word. Regard to that, to explore the conception of democracy and of the subject under the Touraine viewpoint was our aim in this study, without, nevertheless, the pretension to empty the debate. Within the research results, we verify that there is only democracy when the involved. subjects assume their own lives and recognize the plurality of interests and values to be negotiate in the public place, respecting the culture diversity in order to foment the communication among the different ones.

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Antonio Calcagno

    2016-10-01

    Full Text Available This article questions whether we can posit a more radical desuturing of the law from the event: Can radical shifts in law produce events? Can the law itself be an event, thereby conditioning the very nature of the event itself, creating a new subjectivity and a new time?  I would like to argue that the law can do so. How? Badiou begins “The Three Negations” by discussing the work of the German jurist Carl Schmitt (TN 1877. I would like to argue that the state of exception, as elaborated by Carl Schmitt, can serve as the willed decision of a sovereign that brings about an event.  We can understand the sovereign as a kind of legal subject that has the force to bring about a new event, rupturing with an established order and introducing a new form of subjectivity and time.

  13. La sociología de la Acción de Alain Touraine

    1979-01-01

    Full Text Available Se examina el contexto ideológico e intelectual del que deriva la sociología de la acción de A. Touraine a la luz de la crisis moderna de la sociología occidental. Al igual que W. Buckley o J. Haberlas, Touraine ha tratado de superar los conceptos y métodos conservadores de la sociología con el objetivo de arribar a nuevas perspectivas y teorías del cambio social. Se compara las nociones weberiana y parsoniana de acción social con la tentativa de explicación de los valores y orientaciones de la acción propuesta por Touraine. La posición de Touraine se condensa en la noción de sujeto histórico, al que se le atribuye el origen del sistema de orientaciones normativas. Touraine sostiene, de este modo, que la acción puede ser explicada mediante la consideración de los valores. Si bien el trabajo genera orientaciones de valor, tan sólo constituye un tipo de acción. La sociología de Touraine fracasa en su voluntad de resolver los problemas que la sociología parsoniana arrastra consigo: ¿constituye el sistema en el sistema de valores la esencia del cambio social? Con todo, los escritos de Touraine contienen interesantes hipótesis, interpretaciones e intuiciones científicamente fértiles acerca de la realidad social.

  14. The Law of the Subject: Alain Badiou, Luitzen Brouwer and the Kripkean Analyses of Forcing and the Heyting Calculus

    Full Text Available One of the central tasks of Badioursquo;s Being and Event is to elaborate a theory of the subject in the wake of an axiomatic identification of ontology with mathematics, or, to be precise, with classical Zermelo-Fraenkel set theory. The subject, for Badiou, is essentially a free project that originates in an event, and subtracts itself from both being qua being, as well as the linguistic and epistemic apparatuses that govern the situation. The subjective project is, itself, conceived as the temporal unfolding of a lsquo;truthrsquo;. Originating in an event and unfolding in time, the subject cannot, for Badiou, be adequately understood in strictly ontological, i.e. set-theoretical, terms, insofar as neither the event nor time have any place in classical set theory. Badiou nevertheless seeks to articulate the ontological infrastructure of the subject within set theory, and for this he fastens onto Cohenrsquo;s concepts of genericity and forcing: the former gives us the set-theoretic structure of the truth to which the subject aspires, the latter gives us the immanent logic of the subjective procedure, the ldquo;law of the subjectrdquo;. Through the forcing operation, the subject is capable of deriving veridical statements from the local status of the truth that it pursues. Between these set-theoretic structures, and a doctrine of the event and temporality, Badiou envisions the subject as an irreducibly diachronic unfolding of a truth subtracted from language, a subject which expresses a logic quite distinct from that which governs the axiomatic deployment of his classical ontology. This vision of the subject is not unique to Badioursquo;s work. We find a strikingly similar conception in the thought of L.E.J. Brouwer, the founder of intuitionist mathematics. Brouwer, too, insists on the necessary subtraction of truth from language, and on its irreducibly temporal genesis. This genesis, in turn, is entirely concentrated in the autonomous activity of the subject. Moreover, this activity, through which the field of intuitionistic mathematics is generated, expresses a logical structure that, in 1963, Saul Kripke showed to be isomorphic with the forcing relation. In the following essay, I take up an enquiry into the structure of these two theories of the subject, and seek to elucidate both their points of divergence and their strange congruencies; the former, we will see, primarily concern the position of the subject, while the latter concern its form. The paper ends with an examination of the consequences that this study implies for Badioursquo;s resolutely classical approach to ontology, and his identification of ontology as a truth procedure.

    The reported mission aimed at identifying practical modalities by which a more robust than now carbon price trajectory could be guaranteed on the European carbon market, at identifying conditions and modalities of integration of a carbon component into the energy taxation of European countries for sectors not concerned by the European carbon market, and at giving proposals for the implementation of a floor price for the production of electric power at the European scale. Thus, after a summary for policy makers, and a formulation of 10 proposals, this report addresses the implementation of a price corridor on the European market: description and limits of the European carbon market, existing or projected foreign examples, analysis of possible options, envisaged corridor levels, effects on European emissions, effect on companies concerned by the EU ETS, effect on other economic actors and households, opinion of GNOs, effect on bidding revenues, position of the European Commission and Parliament, follow-up modalities, legal aspects. It discusses the role of the arrangement for a quicker phasing out of coal in France: description of the French context in terms of emissions, existing carbon tariffing systems and objectives of emission reduction, objectives of the arrangement, implementation options, environmental, economic and political effects of the uniform tax, solutions and their impacts on European policies. The last part addresses the promotion of carbon pricing in the world

    Hormone replacement therapy (HRT) is an effective treatment for menopausal symptoms like vasomotor symptoms, sleep disturbances, mood alteration, depression, urinary tract infection, vaginal atrophy and increased health risks for osteoporosis, cardiovascular diseases and loss of cognitive function. This study was conducted to determine knowledge, attitude and practice toward menopause among women in UAE. A clinic-based cross-sectional study was carried out among women of age 40 and above. Study subjects were recruited from four Primary Health Care centres in Al Ain city. The participants were administered a questionnaire in Arabic and English, which included 33 items; socio-demographic variables, and questions related to knowledge, attitude and practices regarding menopause and HRT. Out of 177 study subjected selected, 150 (85%) completed the survey. Almost half of the participants (51%) had already experienced menopause. A substantial number of women had poor know knowledge about menopause (67%) and HRT (73%). Sixty percent of women had positive attitude towards menopause. Of the fifty three percent of women with symptoms, 35% of them did not use anything to relieve their symptoms. Knowledge about menopause varied significantly (pmenopause and HRT was found to be statistically significant. Women with reported symptoms that were bothersome had positive attitude towards HRT uptake. The study indicated that there is poor knowledge about menopause and HRT among the participants. Level of knowledge was associated with the level of education. There was a positive attitude towards menopause, with women suffering the most from menopausal symptoms showing positive attitude towards HRT.

    Accurate estimation of resting energy expenditure (REE) in childrenand adolescents is important to establish estimated energy requirements. The aim of the present study was to measure REE in obese children and adolescents by indirect calorimetry method, compare these values with REE values estimated by equations, and develop the most appropriate equation for this group. One hundred and three obese children and adolescents (57 males, 46 females) between 7 and 17 years (10.6 ± 2.19 years) were recruited for the study. REE measurements of subjects were made with indirect calorimetry (COSMED, FitMatePro, Rome, Italy) and body compositions were analyzed. In females, the percentage of accurate prediction varied from 32.6 (World Health Organization [WHO]) to 43.5 (Molnar and Lazzer). The bias for equations was -0.2% (Kim), 3.7% (Molnar), and 22.6% (Derumeaux-Burel). Kim's (266 kcal/d), Schmelzle's (267 kcal/d), and Henry's equations (268 kcal/d) had the lowest root mean square error (RMSE; respectively 266, 267, 268 kcal/d). The equation that has the highest RMSE values among female subjects was the Derumeaux-Burel equation (394 kcal/d). In males, when the Institute of Medicine (IOM) had the lowest accurate prediction value (12.3%), the highest values were found using Schmelzle's (42.1%), Henry's (43.9%), and Müller's equations (fat-free mass, FFM; 45.6%). When Kim and Müller had the smallest bias (-0.6%, 9.9%), Schmelzle's equation had the smallest RMSE (331 kcal/d). The new specific equation based on FFM was generated as follows: REE = 451.722 + (23.202 * FFM). According to Bland-Altman plots, it has been found out that the new equations are distributed randomly in both males and females. Previously developed predictive equations mostly provided unaccurate and biased estimates of REE. However, the new predictive equations allow clinicians to estimate REE in an obese children and adolescents with sufficient and acceptable accuracy.

  12. Temporal dynamics of plant succession in abandoned field in Mediterranean mountain areas: farming terraces and sloping fields (Iberian System, Spain)

    Science.gov (United States)

    Nadal-Romero, Estela; Errea, Paz; Lasanta, Teodoro

    2017-04-01

    Cropland abandonment is an important problem in mountain areas worldwide. This process represents the change from an agricultural management to an abandoned land in which a complex plant succession process occurs, with important hydromorphological effects, and consequences in water resources availability and soil erosion. Literature indicates that plant succession depends on multiple natural factors (soil properties, topography, climate, lithology, and distance to natural covers…) and anthropogenic factors (age of abandonment, management of each field during the cultivation period and after the abandonment…). Despite the advances, much is unknown about the vegetation succession, due to the complexity of ecological and social conditions in which land abandonment occurs. Recently, it is shown that only local factors can explain the heterogeneity of the process (Burel and Baudry, 2002; Jouba and Alados, 2012). In this work, we analyze the diversity of vegetation cover in abandonment fields in Cameros Viejo (Iberian System, Spain), related to the different field patterns (terraces and sloping fields) and the age of abandonment. Agricultural lands were delimited using aerial photographs from 1956 and 1978. The current land cover was obtained from SIOSE (Information System of Land Occupation in Spain). According to our cartography, cultivated land occupied as much as 15,491 ha (39% of the area), remaining abandoned 14,505 ha by 1978. Farming terraces occupied 55.9% of the abandoned area, and 44.1% as sloping fields. On the other hand, our cartography highlights the complexity of current land cover of abandoned fields in a landscape matrix of scrubland. Our results suggest that ecological succession is faster in farming terraces than in sloping fields, mostly until scrubland phase is attained. They also suggest that current land cover is better explained by the physical conditions of each field than by the abandonment age. Acknowledgement This research was supported

ISBN: HB: 0-8264-5906-4, PB: 0-8264-5907-2 The review surveys the contents of Peter Hallward, ed., Think Again: Alain Badiou and the Future of Philosophy and seeks to categorize the various kinds of contributions. It finds that, while some of the essays offer valuable critiques of Badiou's work or else clarify key concepts in productive ways, others challenge aspects of his thought for reasons that are demonstrably spurious. The overall assessment, though, is that the book provides a useful and timely appraisal of Badiou's impact on contemporary philosophy.

    Robert Cailliau (centre), with Geneva's Mayor Alain Vaissade (left) and Jean Erhardt, Secretary General of the Administrative Council of Geneva (right). Geneva recognised the contribution of two CERN people to the reputation of the city last Tuesday when Mayor Alain Vaissade presented the Genève Reconaissante Medal to Tim Berners-Lee and Robert Cailliau. Berners-Lee, who was not able to be present in person, invented the World Wide Web at CERN just over a decade ago, while Cailliau was his first collaborator. Quoting Cailliau, Vaissade said that whilst there is no doubt that something like the Web would have appeared sooner or later, the fact that it happened at CERN, in Geneva, was no accident. Both the Laboratory and the city are places where people from around the world meet and work in harmony.

    Full Text Available Reviw of Alain Badiou, On Beckett, ed. and trans. Nina Power and Alberto Toscano, Clinamen Press, Manchester, 2003. ISBN: 1903083 30 3Badiou's remarkable reading of Beckett seeks to deliver the work of this great writer from the grasp of existentialist phenomenological readings. However, I argue that Badiou's reading of Beckett opens the way for a deeper consideration of the existential issues embedded in Badiou's own work and that this is most fruitfully approached by recalling the thought of Sartre.

    We aimed to study the anatomical distribution, severity and outcome of hospitalised interpersonal violence-related injured patients in Al-Ain, United Arab Emirates so as to give recommendations regarding the magnitude of this problem, its causes and priorities of prevention. Data were retrieved from Al-Ain Hospital Trauma Registry, which was prospectively collected over three years. There were 75 patients (males = 85.3%) having a mean age of 30 years. Eighty-one percent had blunt trauma. The estimated annual injury hospitalisation of interpersonal violence in Al-Ain city was 6.7 per 100,000 population. Females were significantly more injured by a family member (p = 0.02), at home (p = 0.005), and had more severe injuries (p = 0.003). There was a trend for children less than 18 years old to have more penetrating trauma (p = 0.06) and to be injured by a family member (p = 0.09). There was only one case of woman sexual assault and two cases of child abuse. The mean (SD) hospital stay was 7.87 (14.1) days. Less than 3% (n = 2) were admitted to the intensive care unit with no deaths. In conclusion, the majority of patients in our study had minor injuries. Nevertheless, the psychological impact may be major. This highlights the need to develop suitable mental health services in support of victims of interpersonal violence.

    Objectives: To provide early data regarding clinical utility of dabigatran in Al-Ain, United Arab Emirates (UAE). Methods: This was an ethics approved retrospective cross sectional study. We retrieved a total of 76 patients who were using dabigatran from September to December 2014 in the Cardiology Clinic at Al-Ain Hospital, Al-Ain, UAE. The primary analysis was designed to test the frequency of bleeding events (rate) with dabigatran 75, 110, and 150 mg. Results: The mean age ± standard deviation of cohort was 67.9 ± 1.5 years (range; 29-98 years), composed of males (52.6%) with mean age of 66.3 ± 1.7 years, and females (47.4%) with mean age of 69.6 ± 1.1 years. The highest age group was those between 61-80 years (60.5%). Most comprised the age strata of ≤75 years (73.7%). The main indication for dabigatran use was atrial fibrillation. The rate of bleeding with dabigatran was 18/76 (23.7%), and melena was the leading cause of bleeding 8/76 (10.7%). The hospitalization rate was 67.1%, dabigatran withdrawal rate was 0.01%, and mortality rate was 6.5%. The cohort had exhibited incidences of minor bleeding with one fatal major bleeding, high co-morbidities, admission, and readmission, which was not directly linked to dabigatran. We did not identify any relation of death due to dabigatran. Conclusion: Dabigatran is a suitable alternative to warfarin obviating the need for repetitive international normalized ratio monitoring, however, it may need plasma drug monitoring. PMID:26593161

    This study investigated the use of the English translation of a paper-and-pencil self-confidence scale developed in French by Garant, Charest, Alain, and Thomassin in 1995. The translated self-confidence scale measured self-confidence, or the belief that one will succeed at whatever one undertakes, as distinct from self-esteem or the feeling that one is a worthwhile person. Unlike a number of previous studies. there was no sex difference in self-confidence favoring men: however, scores on the masculinity portion of Bem's Sex role Inventory (1974) were highly correlated with self-confidence for both men (r=.59) and women (r=.69).

    One of the most important current trends in astronomy communication has been “change”. The field of astronomy communication has rapidly evolved in just the past few years, as new techniques and technologies have been adopted. Research astronomy has also visibly changed, as automation of survey systems and the launch of new telescopes has produced a tsunami of big data sets. Today, scientists and communicators must work together to navigate the raging waters of this data flood as they strive to keep our tech-savvy society informed.

    2012-05-01

    Full Text Available Given the encroaching, seemingly pernicious backlash against Alain Badiou’s thinking, which appears partly motivated by the bad faith of “philosophical” rivalries, this essay aims to argue in favour of the ongoing and authentically philosophical stakes of Badiou’s ontology. At the same time the essay attempts to highlight the methodological difficulties Badiou encounters in attempting to reconcile an intrinsic ontology as the dominant condition of philosophy, with a philosophy of the event. The essay concludes by speculating on the “unbound”, “unconditioned” potential of this two-headed philosophy.

When we take, with Badiou, mathematics as ontology, and mathematical orientations as orientations to Being, we find in the structural similarity of mathematics and documentary an equivalence: between modes of documentaryand mathematical-ontological decisions, regarding the inscription of 'what is'. From here we move to consider Badiou's notion of 'in-appearing' through a reading of Alain Resnais' documentary Night and Fog.

Although the projection acquired by the indigenous movements, the persistence of a government standard that doesn’t prioritize the constitution of public spaces to deep democracy and the presence of obstacles as the regional divisions still impose serious risks for the consolidation of the democracy in the country.

En continuidad con sus obras anteriores, el sociólogo desarrolla su teoría del sujeto definido por su búsqueda de la dignidad y su rechazo a la humillación. El autor considera que en la era post-social, caracterizada por el debilitamiento e incluso la desaparición de los movimientos propiamente sociales dominantes en la sociedad industrial, se imponen movimientos ético-democráticos. El ser humano se convierte en sujeto a través del proces...

    Steven Kaplan's book about a seemingly trivial event that took place in 1951 is subtitled ‘Return to the forgotten years in France’. This at first surprising title shows how far removed this period is from our own time; but it also underlines, with good reason, the limited number of studies of the post-war era, and the lack of social and economic investigations of France in the 1950s and early 1960s. The publication two years previously of Alain Dewerpe's study of the deaths at the Charonne d...

    A report of the general assembly of the Swiss association for atomic energy held on 4th June 1985. The president, Alain Colomb, called for a 'second electrification' of the country to free Switzerland from a dependence on petroleum. Nuclear energy is necessary to combat air pollution. An invited speaker, Manuel Poyatos of the 'Electricite de France', recounted the French experience of restructuring their electric production system; particular the increasing contribution of nuclear energy and the beneficial effects on the environment.

    More than 350,000 square metres to be maintained, two different cleaning companies due to CERN’s sites being in two different countries, underground installations where cleanliness is a question of safety… the CERN team in charge of supervising cleaning services overcomes all these challenges to ensure that our workplace remains clean and pleasant every day.   Ensuring the cleanliness of sites containing a huge variety of buildings is an enormous challenge for the two experts in the GS Department in charge of cleaning services. Alain Bertrand has been at CERN for 29 years and knows all there is to know about the Organization’s buildings and what they are used for, the condition of their toilet facilities and, of course, the location of the border between France and Switzerland which, in terms of cleaning services, denotes the transition point between the two companies used.

    Full Text Available The main object of this paper is to examine the new philosophical frame proposed by Alain Badiou and Slavoj Žižek and to show that it implies some traces of Sartre's philosophical and political heritage. According the project of Alain Badiou and Slavoj Žižek one should no longer accept today's constellation of freedom, particularistic truth and democracy, but to (reinscribe the issues of freedom and universal truth into a political project that attempts to re-activate a thinking of revolution. Their thinking consists in the wager that it is still possible to provide a philosophical frame for this leftist emancipatory position that claims the dimension of the universal against the vicious circle of capitalist globalization-cum-particularization and, by following Marx's claim that there are formal affinities between the ambitions of emancipatory politics and the working mode of capitalism, takes up the struggle of universalism against globalization (capital. It is only through this struggle for the universal that the intertwined processes of a constant expansion of the automatism of capital and "a process of fragmentation into closed identities," accompanied by "the culturalist and relativist ideology" (Badiou can be suspended. It is precisely this constellation of revolutionary act, universal truth, subject, and militant community, that reveal some similarities with Sartre's concepts of the subject, the revolutionary action, the militant community a.o.

    The aim of this study was to assess dietary practices and risk profile (hypertension, obesity, lipid profile and glycemic control) among people with diabetes in Al-Ain District, United Arab Emirates (UAE). During 2006, we performed a cross-sectional study of diabetic patients attending diabetic outpatient clinics at Tawam Hospital and primary health care centers in Al-Ain District. Subjects completed an interviewer-administered questionnaire, blood pressure, body mass index, percentage body fat and abdominal circumference were measured and recorded and the most recent HbA1c levels and fasting lipid profile were identified. A sample of 409 diabetic patients was recruited, 50% of whom were illiterate. Only 24% read food labeling. 76% reported being unable to distinguish clearly between low and high carbohydrate index food items and no one reported counting calorie intake. 46% reported that they had never been seen by dietician since their diagnosis. Their overall risk profile, notably body weight, lipid profile and blood pressure, was very unfavorable; more than half of the study sample had uncontrolled hypertension and uncontrolled lipid profile and the majority was overweight (36%) or obese (45%). Abdominal obesity was particularly common (59%). Only 31% had an HbA1c of less than 7%. The dietary practices of diabetic patients in the UAE are inadequate and need improvement.

    We aimed to prospectively study distraction-related road traffic collision injuries, their contributory factors, severity, and outcome. Data were prospectively collected on all hospitalized road traffic collision trauma patients in Al-Ain City who were drivers at the collision time over one and half years. Driver's inattentive behaviors preceding the collision were collected by interviewing the admitted drivers. There were 444 drivers, 330 of them were fully oriented patients, out of them only 44 (13%) were distracted. Nineteen (5.8%) drivers were distracted by using mobile phones, 12 (3.6%) were pre-occupied with deep thinking, six (1.8%) were talking with other passengers, four (1.2%) were picking things in the vehicle, and three (0.9%) were using entertainment systems. The maximum distraction occurred during the time of 6 am - 12 noon when the traffic was crowded. There were no significant differences between distracted and non-distracted drivers in demographical and physiological factors, injured regions, and outcomes. Distraction of alert drivers causes 13% of road traffic collisions in Al-Ain city. About 40 percent of the distracted drivers involved in road traffic collisions (RTC) were using mobile phones. Our study supports the ban of use of cell phones while driving.

    To study the effects of a law banning children from taking part in camel racing on child camel jockey injuries in Al-Ain City, United Arab Emirates. Prospective study. University Teaching Hospital. All patients who were admitted to Al-Ain Hospital and were injured while riding camels were prospectively studied between January 1, 2002, and December 31, 2009. Two periods, before the law and after its introduction, were compared. Pediatric injuries, their anatomical distribution, and severity of injury. Fifty-four patients were studied, and all were males. There were 13 children and 41 adults. All children were camel jockeys except 1 child who was riding a camel for fun. None of the adult camel riders was a camel jockey. The median (range) age of patients admitted before the law was 12.5 (5-45) years, which was significantly less compared with 27.2 (20-40) years after its introduction (P = 0.001, Mann-Whitney test). All 13 children sustained their injuries before the law was implemented, whereas 12 of 41 adults sustained their injuries before the legislation was in place (P law enforcement (P law enforcement in injury prevention, illustrated by the replacement of children by robot substitutes. This is possibly one of the few examples where child injury has been completely prevented by legislation.

    To compare the resistance pattern of common bacterial pathogens to commonly used drugs. Information and statistics of antimicrobial resistance for 1994 and 2005 were collected from the 3 hospital microbiology laboratories in the United Arab Emirates. The resistance patterns of Staphylococcus aureus, Escherichia coli, Klebsiella spp, and Pseudomonas aeruginosa to several front-line drugs were estimated. All laboratories used automatic machines (Vitek 2), which identifies and determines minimum inhibitory concentrations simultaneously. Increased resistance was observed for Staphylococcus aureus, (n=315, 2005) to erythromycin (approximately 6 fold, Al-Ain Hospital only), cloxacillin (Al-Ain Hospital), and gentamicin (more than 3-10 folds in all hospitals). Increased penicillin resistance was not observed. For the common Gram-negative organisms, there was a high resistance to ampicillin, gentamicin, ceftriaxone, ciprofloxacin, and imipenem, which seemed to increase for Escherichia coli, (by 4.2-200%, n=305, 2005); however, there was very little resistance to imipenem (0.4%) in Tawam Hospital. Variable resistance patterns were obtained for Pseudomonas aeruginosa (n=316, 2005) and Klebsiella spp,(n=316, 2005) against aminoglycosides, cephalosporins, ciprofloxacin, and norfloxacin. Overall, there was an obvious increase in resistance of bacteria and the prevalence rate to a number of drugs from 1-120 folds during the 11-year period. (author)

    Full Text Available The school textbook as memory space, ideological and pedagogical tool vector has emerged as a new piece of research for historians. Undervalued for a long time, today it brings critical information to understand the initial processes of socialization that took place within schools. One of them, indeed, has been the textbook of geography, which is shown as vehicle tool for many national messages about the territory and the population. It was evident that in Spain, Mexico, Guatemala, Colombia, Ecuador, Chile and Argentina such themes and uses were recurrent and provided similar services. However, it was found that the vast majority of historical studies are still overestimating the role of the textbook, as already denounced Alain Choppin.

To compare contemporary texts to paintings that arose in the moment immediately preceding the full achievement of the non-representational suggests that both incorporate trivial—and even popular—elements because they are so eminently cuttable. In each work, the decomposition of objects to their pieces shifts interest from paradigm to syntagm, while retaining sufficient reference to paradigm to embody syntagm, to make structure perceptible. All three are heterotopias, following Michel Foucault's terminology, in which the many spatio-temporal perspectives each portrays are assembled in a single structure, without the hierarchy that a unified perspective or a linear chronology can impose.

    2013-03-01

    Full Text Available From its beginnings the Bolonya plan has generated a wide debate around its market-oriented and neoliberal tendencies, present at all levels of the university institution. The tension between idealized views of the university, probably impossible to realize, and utilitarian views, clearly unjust, centers the focus of the debate. These tensions bring to light the pluriversity and multiversity that traverse the contemporary university. To what does the university and its professionals still give form? Taking as a reference some teachings by Alain Badiou and Jacques Derrida, we try to think the university situation, and the links between professing, the professor, and the profession. The analysis attempts to synthesize, in a different way, what the university can do or can be today. This synthesis leads us to think the function of the university teacher using the metaphors of the philosopher and the double agent.

We show first how the introduction of parliamentary democracy – defined as constitutionalization of state...... representative democracy - not abolish it.

    Full Text Available In the English-language reception of Alain Badiou#39;s work, he has often been one-sidedly positioned as a direct heir to the antihumanist projects of Lacan, Althusser and Foucault. Whilst there is much to this claim, this paper argues that the retention of a notion of the #39;political subject#39; in Badiou#39;s work necessarily also depends upon a commitment to a much-underexamined notion of a minimal philosophical anthropology that puts Badiou in a tradition with thinkers such as Ludwig Feuerbach. It is further argued that Badiou#39;s minimal philosophical anthropology is opposed in essence to apparently similar phenomenological projects because it aligns humanity with infinity and not finitude.nbsp;

Zima Modern/Postmodern (2010 modernism/modernity, postmodernism/postmodernity is once again a subject of reflection in contemporary aesthetics. It attempts to examine those concept not only in artistic, stylistic way, but also from the other points of view: historical, political, social, ideological. I would like to reveal a thesis that a distance of last decade or two we recognise that we are more and more from the spirit of postmodernism/postmodernity and that we open some problem once again that modernity had in the centre of its reflection: identity of subject, sense of existence, the feeling of crisis: the art of crisis. Does it mean a return of some points of modernism/modernity? I will try to answer to this questions by inviting to a discussion also other contemporary thinkers (Jean-Luc Nancy, Alain Badiou, and Jacques Rancière.

    Full Text Available Today, philosophy of education comes forward as diverse, many-faceted and numerous engagements with issues and problems concerning both the fields of philosophy and education. But what is the vital mission of contemporary philosophers of education, and how is this mission justified? Through a tentative reading of Alain Badiou’s ethic and philosophical manifestos, I here hope to throw some lights on these questions. To do so, I clarify Badiou’s epistemic and ontological positions and discuss the relevance of his “ethic of truths” and “democratic materialism”. To what degree may Badiou inform the potential topicality and relevance of a philosophy of education of and for the present?

  3. The Politics of Presentation: On Badiou as Reader of Rousseau

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Edvard Marko Lorkovic

    2012-05-01

    Full Text Available This paper explores the distinction between representative and presentative conceptions of politics in the works of Alain Badiou and Jean-Jacques Rousseau. Analyzing Badiou’s reading of Rousseau’s Social Contract, the paper shows that, contrary to a common view, Rousseau is not a normative theorist of legitimacy; instead, he is a political ontologist, one who thinks the being of politics rather than its norms. In this role, Rousseau defends a politics of presentation, a conception of politics as essentially creative rather than imitative. Against a view of politics as a representation of natural, divine or moral order, Rousseau’s political ontology maintains that politics exists only so long as order is created, out of nothing as it were. In short, politics cannot be representational; it exists only as long as it is present, not represented. For Badiou and Rousseau, representation is not necessarily illegitimate or unjust; it is simply not political.

    2006-01-01

    Full Text Available Este ensayo analiza el pensamiento sobre la violencia en la trayectoria teórica y política del filósofo francés Alain Badiou. Argumenta que, de acuerdo con las transformaciones de la problematización de la violencia, es posible alcanzar una comprensión de la racionalidad profunda que acompaña los giros de la postura de Badiou. El ensayo traza el pasaje desde un pensamiento de la subjetividad propio de los escritos violentamente dialécticos (y dialécticamente violentos del autor de los años setenta, hacia la reflexión metapolítica sobre los acontecimientos, las verdades y la subjetivación que identifica su trabajo más reciente.

  5. Revolution, Event and Theory of the Act . Arendt, Badiou and Žižek

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Ricardo Camargo

    2010-12-01

    Full Text Available This article explores the question of the political meaning of the term “revolution” and the relation that has been established and should continue to be established between revolution and freedom. To this effect, the article examines some of the main proposals set forth in this respect by three contemporary thinkers, Hannah Arendt, Alain Badiou and Slavoj Žižek, with occasional references to Michel Foucault and Antonio Negri. The proposal argued for here is that Arendt’s notion of revolution and the notions of event and act put forth in the radical political theories of Badiou and Žižek intersect and necessarily supplement one another.

  6. From the Philosophy of Theatre to Performance Philosophy: Laruelle, Badiou and the Equality of Thought

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Laura Cull Ó Maoilearca

    2018-03-01

    Full Text Available Abstract  This article draws from François Laruelle's non-standard philosophy to locate gestures of philosophical "authority" or 'sufficiency" within recent work in the philosophy of theatre – including material from contemporary Anglo-American philosophical aesthetics, and texts by Alain Badiou, such as In Praise of Theatre (2015. Whilst Badiou initially appears magnanimous in relation to theatre's own thinking - famously describing theatre as "an event of thought" that "directly produces ideas" (Badiou 2005: 72 - I argue that this very benevolence, from a Laruellean perspective, constitutes another form of philosophical authoritarianism. In contrast, I indicate some affinities between Laruelle's non-standard aesthetics and the emerging field of Performance Philosophy - one aim of which, as distinct from the philosophy of theatre, would be to allow performance to qualitatively extend our concepts of thinking and/or to be attentive to the ways in which performance has already provided new forms of philosophy.

    2012-01-01

    Full Text Available As a result of the analysis of general strike, undertaken after 1905 byRosa Luxemburg and Georges Sorel, the boundaries between classical anarchismand orthodox Marxism were blurred. Their vision of spontaneous revolutionarymass movement became a driving force of „new left” activism in the ‚60s and, atthe same time, a starting point for debates concerning concepts of class and consciousnessand the problem of revolutionary political organisation. In the mid-80s,Chantal Mouffe and Ernesto Laclau turned to the heritage of Luxemburg and Sorelto deal with what they perceived as a serious crisis of the left. The aim of this paperis to reexamine the ideas of Luxembourg and Sorel, as well as some of its interpretations,in the context of three revolutionary strategies formulated today – thepractice of the alter-globalization and the Zapatista movement, the universalism ofAlain Badiou, and the philosophy of Giorgio Agamben.

  8. Lacan e o Deus-infinito de Pascal: considerações sobre a aposta pascaliana e o início de uma análise

    2017-01-01

    Full Text Available El artículo tiene como objetivo analizar la utilización que Jaques Lacan hace de un punto específico de la obra de Blaise Pascal, relacionada con apostar en un Dios-infinito. Lacan complementa el estudio de la apuesta de Pascal con una referencia a la gracia religiosa como momento inaugural de apertura al infinito. A partir de estas consideraciones se apoya la hipótesis de que la apuesta de Pascal se aproxima a la operación requerida para iniciar un análisis. La apuesta de Pas - cal pone en juego el infinito. Con la ayuda del filósofo Alain Badiou, trataremos de demostrar que Lacan parte de la misma idea al considerar que no hay apertura al inconsciente correlativo al comienzo de un análisis- sin alguna dimensión de infinidad.

    CERN scientists probe ever-deeper levels of matter and their interactions, but can we say that the patterns they see are truly fundamental? Does the universe obey the same laws throughout? Since mathematical constructions can be true in the absence of any relation to the physical world, is mathematics more fundamental than physics? Extraterrestrial life would probably look much different from that on Earth, but natural selection still be fundamental to their evolution? Leading thinkers from a variety of subjects will explore the question of what is fundamental in a symposium at CERN. Richard Dawkins will speak on biology, Gerard ‘t Hooft will focus on physics, and Alain Connes will discuss mathematics; a leading computer scientist is also scheduled to speak. 15 October, 14:00 to 17:00 CERN Auditorium, Bldg. 500 Entrance free

  11. The Poetic Word in the Taking-Place of Language: Aesthetics, Ethics, and Politics

    Maria Rosa Duarte de Oliveira

    2016-09-01

    Full Text Available This work aims to investigate the nature and function of the poetic word from its relation with aesthetics, ethics, and politics. We are stirred to know the ways poetic language, inscribed within language, may appear as a gesture of resistance and subversion. This is due to its investments both in non-representation and in the presentation of an (almost rising being in a hic et nunc of its presence in the "taking place" of language. Contemporary philosophers, such as Alain Badiou and Giorgio Agamben, suggest possible answers to this question through the operation of negativity that takes place in language so as to make it uninformative. Barthes also seems to follow the same path by lingering on the emptiness of the appearance of "this is" in the poetic form of haiku, which prevents any further interpretation. We expect that these ways of thinking the poetic may offer literary criticism new investigative parameters.

    Six leading experts lecture on a wide spectrum of recent results on the subject of the title, providing both a solid reference and deep insights on current research activity. Michael Cowling presents a survey of various interactions between representation theory and harmonic analysis on semisimple groups and symmetric spaces. Alain Valette recalls the concept of amenability and shows how it is used in the proof of rigidity results for lattices of semisimple Lie groups. Edward Frenkel describes the geometric Langlands correspondence for complex algebraic curves, concentrating on the ramified case where a finite number of regular singular points is allowed. Masaki Kashiwara studies the relationship between the representation theory of real semisimple Lie groups and the geometry of the flag manifolds associated with the corresponding complex algebraic groups. David Vogan deals with the problem of getting unitary representations out of those arising from complex analysis, such as minimal globalizations realized o...

    I årene efter Anden Verdenskrig og Holocaust var FNs særorganisation for uddannelse, videnskab og kultur, UNESCO, omdrejningspunkt for en semantisk kamp i den internationale, videnskabelige verden om den rette definition af racebegrebet. En kamp der i sin essens handlede om naturvidenskabernes...... eller samfundsvidenskabernes fortrinsret, når det gjaldt fortolkningen af menneskets oprindelse, inddeling og værdi. Afhandlingen afdækker UNESCOs initiativer og vurderer deres virkningshistorie i tiden fra 1945 og frem til 1965, hvor FN vedtog sin konvention mod racediskrimination. En central opgave...... for UNESCO i perioden var at udforme en erklæring, som indeholdt en almengyldig definition af racebegrebet. Det skete i troen på, at erklæringen kunne fjerne fordomme og bringe menneskeheden tættere sammen. Filosoffen Alain Finkielkraut har karakteriseret erklæringen som et politisk projekt.

    2004-01-01

    Discussing what is fundamental in a variety of fields, biologist Richard Dawkins, physicist Gerardus 't Hooft, and mathematician Alain Connes spoke to a packed Main Auditorium at CERN 15 October. Dawkins, Professor of the Public Understanding of Science at Oxford University, explained simply the logic behind Darwinian natural selection, and how it would seem to apply anywhere in the universe that had the right conditions. 't Hooft, winner of the 1999 Physics Nobel Prize, outlined some of the main problems in physics today, and said he thinks physics is so fundamental that even alien scientists from another planet would likely come up with the same basic principles, such as relativity and quantum mechanics. Connes, winner of the 1982 Fields Medal (often called the Nobel Prize of Mathematics), explained how physics is different from mathematics, which he described as a "factory for concepts," unfettered by connection to the physical world.

  1. Literature, cinema and history in "Hiroshima Mon Amour"

    Full Text Available This article analyzes Hiroshima Mon Amour, realization by Alain Resnais divulged in 1959 and ciné-roman by Marguerite Duras published in 1960. Considering the Jeanne-Marie Clerc's theory (2004, we understand that the literature and the cinema are resources of expression that do not establish competition or subordination relations, but they establish complementary relations, they make mutual exchanges for their renewals. They are not the documents on the atomic tragedy of Hiroshima because they congregate historical facts, literary narrative and cinematographic techniques. This ciné-roman and this film displays a revolutionary position of the artistic form to express a critical vision on the world after war. They create a love history and a history of loss, focusing the individual anguish in the plot. Through  the return to the past, using a poetical language, they discloses the pains of the protagonist and the pains of the humanity. Therefore the receiver reflects on himself.

    Full Text Available Though Alain Resnais’ documentary film about the French National Library, All the World’s Memory (Toute la Memoir du Monde, is meant to celebrate the library’s scope and organization, anxiety seeps into its cinematic “language”: dim black-and-white footage, a restlessly prowling camera, close-ups that cut off object from context and detail from whole, discontinuous cuts, choppy bullet-like comments, and darkly foreboding orchestral music. It’s a beautiful film, but what does it say about Resnais’ feelings about the library? Certainly awe, but also high modernism’s anxiety about proliferating knowledge. “Man,” the authoritative male voice-over proclaims, “fears being engulfed by this mass of words.”

    Wilson Mwenda Kailemia

    2016-05-01

    Full Text Available The present paper proposes the parallels between ‘staged’ incidences of terrorism and ‘spectacular public disorder’ as a supplementary reading of terrorism. I claim that, while the spectacular in both is not 'par se'- or even an exhaustive- account of how terrorism functions, there is an aspect of what the French philosopher Alain Badiou has referred to as 'Passage a l’acte' (‘blind acting out’- coined apropos of the 2006 Paris riots- which should exercise our attention. The methodology of 'passage a l’acte' is to draw maximum attention to an issue by letting the extended post-attack coverage ‘do the talking’. The article also shows how ‘phatic communication’, a term coined by Malinowski, is an important component of 'passage a l’acte'

En este artículo, analizamos As aves da noite como una pieza de advertencia sobre el terror impuesto por cualquier estado totalitario, no solamente el instaurado por el nacionalsocialismo alemán. El análisis fue fundamentado, entre otros pensadores, en Alain Badiou, para quien el siglo XX no ha cumplido la promesa de la modernidad y la vida y por el contrario solamente he cumplido su destino y su designio positivo a través del terror. Nos apoyamos en las ideas de Hannah Arendt para analizar el odio y la violencia de los estados totalitarios.

    Full Text Available The tale is not just a linear, sober narrative, but a clever combination of a diegesis of a certain type, a network of images and an implicit philosophy. This is where it differs from both the short story and the fable. As a literary genre, it is less of a « simple form » (André Jolles and more of a « simplex form » (Alain Berthoz. In this context, how to address the question of the simple style in the literary genre of the fairy tale – a genre which leans towards complexity and sophistication, more than simplicity? We will suggest that the literary ideal of simplicity advocated by Perrault, best exemplified in The Fairies, is constructed against the gallant aesthetic which was the source of French fairy tales.

    Full Text Available Como ensinar seus pais a gostar de livros para crianças, de Alain Serres e Bruno Heitz e O que é um bom livro?, de Emmanuel Parmentier, são dois livros franceses destinados, aparentemente por seu formato físico, a crianças, mas, pelo tema, são destinados a pais. Antes de analisá-los, o trabalho refaz um breve percurso sobre o conceito de infância com Ariès e Leontiev e destaca o papel do outro bakhtiniano na constituição do sujeito. As obras defendem o ponto de vista de que os gestos culturais criados para ler literatura infantil devem fazer parte da cultura de relações entre adultos e crianças

  2. Restauration and revolution. Essay on the dialectics of the struggle for homosexual rights

    Full Text Available The author analyses opinions expressed by the French philosopher Alain Badieu concerning the course and the outcome of ideological struggles led in the 20th century. Unlike Badieu who claims that the century ended with complete defeat of communist ideas, the author claims that the left had some success in the field of culture, in spite of all the loses in economy and politics. This thesis is illustrated by the example of the movement for homosexual rights. According to Badieu, this movement entered history with a revolutionary claim for a general liberation of human sexuality, and ended with the egoistic, petit-bourgeois request for the right to marriage. The author, on the other hand, thinks that the recognition of this second request augments sexual liberties and dynamics in the entire society, which means that the movement has fulfilled its general revolutionary function according Badieu’s own criteria.

    Full Text Available Este artigo se propõe a problematizar a relação homem-meio ambiente, relacionando-a com o conceito de viagem a partir da análise de parte da exposição intitulada Em trânsito, do arquiteto e fotógrafo Luiz Carlos Felizardo. As imagens foram feitas livremente por ele durante suas férias na França e, por isso, o fotógrafo afirmou que não teve a intenção de realizar um ensaio sobre o país. No entanto, valemo-nos dos conceitos de John Berger, Michel Maffesoli e Alain de Botton para demonstrar que o modo de ver de Felizardo escapa às determinações superficiais de envolvimento com o lugar, ou seja, da concepção do turista.

    Full Text Available The citizen is characterized by its affiliation to a democratic order, but we need to know if this order allows building citizenship. If the political participation manifests legally the right to citizenship, for Alain Touraine, a citizen is "to feel the responsibility for the smooth functioning of institutions that obey the human rights and which it allows a representation of ideas and interests.”, which is a lot, but it does not imply a moral or national conscience. The accuracy on human rights raises a question on its epistemological status: is it a socially acceptable condition for nowadays or is it a substantial condition of concept’s existence, in which case we should believe that the Greeks andthe Romans knew what a citizen was.

    Full Text Available In Jože Hradil’s Faceless Pictures [Slike brez obrazov] the characters go astray or get into the attraction of adventures and set off for a journey. The spiritual and identity shifts can be interpreted along these eternal human desires as well. A patchwork of remembering and forgetting, the internal journeys of identity preservation, spontaneous or forced assimilation, tolerance and all kinds of politics-induced human deformations are depicted in the novel. The text traces the roles of the journey defined by Jean Chevalier and Alain Gheerbrant such as the search for justice, peace, immortality and finding the spiritual center. This study examines how the concrete physical journey changes into an internal road determining the evolution of personality.

    2000-01-01

    Four CERN physicists, Peggie Rimmer, Ugo Amaldi, Alain Blondel, and Jean-Marie Le Goff, answered questions from 150 college students last Monday during a debate on the theme of the ethics of physics. Organized by CERN and the Department of public instruction of the Canton of Geneva, the meeting followed a reading by the students of the play Die Physiker, by Friedrich Dürrenmatt, which raises the problem of political exploitation of discoveries made during the second world war. The Minister of Education of the Canton de Genève, Mrs Martine Brunschwig-Graf, took part in the debate. The questions posed by students were not lacking in pertinence : Should a physicist reveal a discovery that is dangerous in his opinion ? Who are responsible, those who make the discoveries or those who use them ?

    As further confirmation of France's commitment to the fight against climate change, the 'Grenelle de l'Environnement' summit produced a new program of investments, financial inducements, tax incentives and institutional changes. In his closing statement the President of the Republic announced that 'all public projects, all public decisions will henceforth be weighed against their cost to the climate and their cost in carbon'. A high-level committee has been created to that end. Chaired by Alain Quinet, it is staffed by economists from the academic world, the CNRS, the AIE and the OECD, as well as representatives of economic and social partners, environmental organizations and the relevant administrations. An outline of the main conclusions is presented here. (author)

In the second part, noveau roman’s ontic realism will be presented. Finally, in the third part, starting with a comparison with the world of computer games, the essay will trace the effect of the overlapping of noveau roman with narrative identity both on the level of description and prescription.

  14. Multifractal analysis and modeling of one- and two-dimensional data with discrete wavelet transforms, isotropic or not

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    Davis, A.B.

    1998-12-01

    The authors compare several ways of uncovering multifractal properties of data in 1D and 2D using wavelet transforms. The WTMM or (Continuous) Wavelet Transform Maximum Modulus method has been extensively documented and widely applied by Dr. Alain Arneodo`s (Bordeaux) group, to the point where their successes have overshadowed simpler techniques that use the Discrete WT. What the latter lack in robustness is gained in efficiency, thus enabling virtually real-time multifractal analysis of data as it is collected. Another advantage of DWT-based approaches is that tensor products of dyadic and triadic branching schemes enable a straightforward attack on strong anisotropy in natural and artificial 2D random fields.

    Full Text Available This article purposes a consideration on themes relevant to Jean-Luc Nancy’s theory, by means of two short-stories by Clarice Lispector, two poems – one by Manuel Bandeira and one by Cecília Meireles – and one movie by Alain Resnais. Concerning all these examples, the aim is to deal with issues related to meaning, body, absence, touch and the eroticism movement – and to investigate traces of the body denial as an absolute truth or as a closure of meaning in the female characters, since they sometimes behave themselves as saints, sometimes as whores. In Noli me tangere, an essay by Jean-Luc Nancy based on a Biblical episode, we become aware that the contact between resuscitated Jesus and Maria Magdalena does not actually happen – and this is a motive scene for composing a consideration on the chosen corpus.

Although the projection acquired by the indigenous movements, the persistence of a governmentstandard that doesn’t prioritize the constitution of public spaces to deep democracy and the presence of obstacles as the regional divisions still impose serious risks for the consolidation ofthe democracy in the country.RESUMO: Tendo como objeto os movimentos indígenas bolivianos, o trabalho explora a articulação feita por esses grupos entre o universo simbólico e o universo instrumental, conforme concepção de Alain Touraine, abordando questões relacionadas à problemáticahistórica de sua exclusão e a forma pela qual este quadro se refletiu no cenário político boliviano, analisando as condições que propiciaram a atual ascensão política dos movimentos indígenas. Como será visto, apesar de os movimentos indígenas terem adquirido certa projeção política no cenário boliviano, a persistência de um padrão de governo que não contempla e formação de espaços públicos de aprofundamento da democracia e a presença de obstáculos como as divisões regionais ainda impõem sérios riscos para a consolidação da democracia no país.

The main idea that involves the crossing of these affine references is to circumscribe the fleeting act of affirmation of the law qua difference that enables the constitution of a political subject remarking its essentially ethical dimension

    The objective of this study is to evaluate women's priorities and preferences in selecting their obstetrician and gynecologist in a non-Western society. Consecutive sample of 508 patients attending the obstetric and gynecologic services of AL-Ain Hospital; AL-Ain; United Arab Emirates during 4 months was recruited. Participants were interviewed by using a structured 26-item questionnaire administered by means of face-to-face interview within 24 h of admission in the ward or before consultation in the outpatient clinic. Respondents were asked about their preferences, priorities, determinants of choice of their obstetrician and gynecologist, their view of his/her role as a medical provider, and their perception of importance of each of provider's characteristics and roles on a five-point Likert scale. Four hundred thirty-nine (86.4%) participants preferred female physicians. Sixty-one (12%) had no preference and eight (1.6%) preferred male physicians. Reasons for female selection were privacy during intimate examination (89.1%) or counseling (68.8%), religious beliefs (74.3%), and cultural traditions (45.3%). Female preference was significantly associated with higher parity (P = 0.002), religion (P = 0.005), nationality (P = 0.01), occupation (P = 0.02), education (P = 0.04), and poor recognition of physician's role as professional/expert (P health educator (P = 0.04). Other physician characteristics affecting choice were professionalism, bedside manners, empathy, communication, competence, availability, and religion. Physician's attitude, professional profile, sex, and religious faith determine women's choice of obstetricians and gynecologists. Most women prefer female providers because of embarrassment during pelvic examination and reproductive counseling, religious beliefs, and sociocultural values.

  7. Las ontologías de lo común en la estética y en el arte actuales

    2013-12-01

    Full Text Available In recent decades, two lines of thought have wanted to take care of the need to think “the common” from ontological coordinates. One, represented mainly by Jean-Luc Nancy and Alain Badiou, takes up heideggerian analysis on Mitsein. The other one starts of Toni Negri’s analysis of Spinoza’s notion of “multitude”. These “ontologies of the common” have given rise led to many Aesthetic tendencies pursuing a political purpose. This paper examines these trends in order to determine what kind of notion of “the common” they are using. The theory put forward is that their interpretation of those ontologies is wrong and that the “community” present in them is closer to the Kantian sensus communis.En las últimas décadas, dos líneas de pensamiento han querido hacerse cargo de la necesidad de pensar “lo común” desde coordenadas ontológicas. Una, representada principalmente por Jean-Luc Nancy y Alain Badiou, retoma los análisis de Heidegger sobre el Mitsein; la otra parte de los análisis que Toni Negri hace de la noción de “multitud” de Spinoza. Estas dos “ontologías de lo común” han dado pie a sendas estéticas que persiguen una finalidad política. Este trabajo estudia estas tendencias con el fin de determinar qué tipo de noción de “lo común” manejan. La tesis esgrimida es la de que la interpretación que hacen de aquellas ontologías es errónea y que la “comunidad” presente en ellas está más próxima al sensus communis kantiano.

    Full Text Available Depuis la parution du traité de Georges Friedmann et Pierre Naville il y a cinquante ans, la sociologie du travail a toujours cherché à comprendre, sous leurs divers aspects, toutes les communautés humaines qui se constituent à l’occasion du travail. Elle s’y est attachée en introduisant dans son champ une très riche variété de paradigmes et en acceptant par là même les conflits théoriques. C’est dans cet esprit d’ouverture et de débat que le premier dossier Chorus de la Nouvelle Revue du Travail est consacré à la mise en œuvre du paradigme du don en matière de sociologie du travail. Alain Caillé, le principal animateur du Mouvement Anti-Utilitariste en Sciences Sociales (MAUSS et Norbert Alter, le contributeur essentiel d’inspiration maussienne pour la sociologie du travail et des organisations, reviennent dans deux textes inédits sur les vertus heuristiques de la théorie du don contre-don pour appréhender le monde du travail et ses mutations. La NRT ouvre ensuite le débat avec ces deux auteurs.Since Georges Friedmann and Pierre Naville’s seminal treatise was first published 50 years ago, the sociology of work has always tried to understand the full range of human communities that arise when work occurs, under all of their different aspects. It has tried to achieve this by introducing a very wide variety of paradigms into the field and by addressing any ancillary theoretical conflicts. It is in this spirit of openness and debate that the first Chorus file in the Nouvelle Revue du Travail (NRT looks at how the gift paradigm has been implemented in the sociology of work.

El análisis pretende sintetizar, de otras maneras, lo que la universidad puede o puede ser en la actualidad. Síntesis que nos lleva a pensar la función del docente universitario mediante las metáforas del filósofo y el agente doble.

    From its beginnings the Bolonya plan has generated a wide debate around its market-oriented and neoliberal tendencies, present at all levels of the university institution. The tension between idealized views of the university, probably impossible to realize, and utilitarian views, clearly unjust, centers the focus of the debate. These tensions bring to light the pluriversity and multiversity that traverse the contemporary university.

    To what does the university and its professionals still give form? Taking as a reference some teachings by Alain Badiou and Jacques Derrida, we try to think the university situation, and the links between professing, the professor, and the profession. The analysis attempts to synthesize, in a different way

    Full Text Available Although Sir Walter Scott is a well-known writer most of his readers know that he became an advocate in 1792, when he was admitted to the bar. Since then Scott and other advocates walked the floor at Parliament House (home of the Faculty of Advocates and the Court of Session waiting to be hired. Scott’s own experiences as a fledgling advocate are echoed in those of Alain Fairford in his novel Redgauntlet (Scott 1824, which provides a vivid picture of Parliament House in the eighteenth century. During his life, Scott combined extensive writing and editing issues with his daily work as Clerk of Session and Sheriff-Depute of Selkirkshire. Walter Scott was not unaware of Justice and Law and The Heart of Mid-Lothian is the novel in which he introduces to the reader the Scottish Legal System during the eighteenth century. However, there are few more examples that I will explain. Aunque Sir Walter Scott es un conocido escritor, la mayoría de sus lectores saben que en 1792 se hizo abogado, cuando fue admitido en el colegio de abogados. Desde entonces Scott y otros abogados rondaron el Parlamento con la esperanza de ser contratados. Las propias experiencias de Scott como un abogado novel se reflejan en las de Alain Fairford en su novela Redgauntlet (Scott 1824, lo que ofrece una vívida imagen del Parlamento (sede de la facultad de Derecho y Tribunal Supremo en el siglo XVIII. Durante su vida, Scott compaginó una profusa actividad como escritor y editor con su trabajo diario como juez en Selkirk. Walter Scott conocía la justicia y el derecho y El corazón de Mid-Lothian es la novela en la presenta al lector el régimen jurídico de Escocia durante el siglo XVIII.

    Full Text Available Abstract Background Diabetes mellitus (DM is a major health problem in the United Arab Emirates (UAE and is well recognized as a major and increasing burden to the country's resources due to its severe, long term debilitating effects on individuals, families and the society at large. The aim of the study was to estimate the direct annual treatment costs of DM and its related complications among patients in Al-Ain city, UAE. Methods A sample of 150 DM patients were enrolled during 2004-2005, and their medical costs over the ensuing 12 months was measured, quantified, analyzed and extrapolated to the population in Al-Ain and UAE, using conventional and inference statistics. The costs were converted from UAE Dirhams to US Dollar, using the official conversion rate of US$ (1 USD = 3.68 AED. Results The total annual direct treatment costs of DM among patients without complications in Al Ain-UAE, was US $1,605 (SD = 1,206 which is 3.2 times higher than the per capita expenditure for health care in the UAE (US$ 497 during 2004 (WHO, 2004. However, this cost increased 2.2 times with the presence of DM related complications for patients with microvascular complications, by 6.4 times for patients with macrovascular complications and 9.4 times for patients with both micro and macrovascular complications. Likewise, the annual direct hospitalization costs of DM patients increased by 3.7 times for patients with microvascular complications, by 6.6 times for patients with macrovascular complications and by 5 times for patients with both micro and macrovascualr complications. Overall, costs increased with age, diabetes duration and were higher for patients treated with insulin compared to those treated with oral hypoglycemic agents or with diet control only. Conclusions DM direct treatment costs increased with the presence and progression of chronic DM related complications. Hospitalisation costs constituted a large proportion and were increasingly higher with

    Full Text Available Abstract Background Diabetes Mellitus (DM is a major public health problem in the UAE with a prevalence rate reaching 24% in national citizens and 17.4% in expatriates. The aim of this study was to determine the prevalence and risk factors of macrovascular complications among diabetic patients in the Al-Ain district of the United Arab Emirates (UAE. Methods The study was part of a general cross-sectional survey carried out to assess the prevalence of diabetes (DM complications among known diabetic patients in Al-Ain District, UAE. Patients were randomly selected during 2003/2004. Patients completed an interviewer-administered questionnaire carried out by treating doctors and underwent a complete medical assessment including measurement of height, weight, blood pressure and examination for evidence of macrovascular complications. A standard ECG was recorded and blood samples were taken to document fasting blood sugar, glycosylated haemoglobin (HbA1C and lipid profile. Results A sample of 513 diabetic patients was selected with a mean age of 53 years (SD ± 13.01. Overall, 29.5% of DM patients had evidence of macrovascular complications: 11.6% (95% CI: 8.8–14.4 of patients had peripheral vascular disease (PVD, 14.4% (95% CI: 11.3–17.5 had a history of coronary artery disease (CAD and 3.5% (95% CI: 1.9–5.1% had cerebrovascular disease (CVD. Of the total population surveyed 35% (95%CI: 30.8–39 had hypertension. The analysis showed that macrovascular complications in diabetic patients were more common among males, increased with age, were more common among hypertensive patients and its prevalence increased steadily with duration of DM. Conclusion Our data revealed a significant association between hypertension and presence of macrovascular disease among diabetic patients. However, the risk of CAD in the UAE was relatively low compared to that seen in patients in other geographical settings. In addition, a lack of correlation between

    Full Text Available Este trabajo pretende hacer una serie de consideraciones que apuntan sobre todo a extraer una definición de lo que es «la política» para el psicoanálisis a partir de una observación que hace Jacques Alain Miller en su texto Lógicas de la vida amorosa sobre cómo Freud introduce una «teoría política» a partir de su texto Psicología de las masas y análisis del yo.En dicho texto Freud hace ver el poder ordenador y apaciguador del amor significante amo en la medida en que una masa no es más que el amor uniendo a muchas personas y reiterado en cada una de ellas. Las fuerzas armadas y la Iglesia son un buen ejemplo de ello.Pero a pesar de la cohesión amorosa de la humanidad por el poder unificante del amor, resta siempre un malestar. El malestar que persiste en la cultura testimonia del fracaso del amor para resolver el empuje del hombre a satisfacerse con el mal. El significante amo no parece entonces solucionar la paradoja del goce. De aquí que preguntarse sobre adónde vaya el goce en el orden social sea también, para el psicoanálisis, una cuestión política. Jacques- Alain Miller observa, en su texto Lógicas de la vida amorosa, cómo, a partir de la Psicología de las masas y análisis del yo, se puede extraer de Freud una «teoría política», que se vincula muy estrechamente con el amor. Esto porque La Psicología de las masas... enseña sobre el poder ordenador y apaciguador del amor, o mejor, del significante «amor» como significante Amo, lo que se puede escribir de la siguiente manera con ayuda de la «teoría de los discursos» o «teoría del vínculo social» de Lacan.

    2008-08-01

    Full Text Available O artigo discute as relações entre cultura do sucesso e sexualidade, com foco na infância - tema caro às diferentes mídias, como a televisão e o cinema. Faz-se uma análise do filme Pequena Miss Sunshine, a partir de autores como Foucault, Alain Badiou, Ismail Xavier e Jurandir Costa, com ênfase nos conceitos de modos de subjetivação, imagem fílmica e subjetividade exterior. O objetivo é pensar questões de gênero e sexualidade na cultura do espetáculo, a partir de uma narrativa cinematográfica em que tais valores são questionados. A ênfase é dada à análise do olhar e do corpo infantil, na figura da personagem Olive, de modo a pensar a gestualidade própria da criança, em seu silêncio, enigma e mistério, mais do que mera revelação de sentidos. O texto aponta que tal exercício pode sugerir outros modos de pensar as relações entre mídia, infância e questões de gênero e sexualidade.This article explores the relations between the culture of success and sexuality, with a focus on childhood as an important issue for the different kinds of media, such as television and the cinema. An analysis of the movie Little Miss Sunshine is developed, with the use of theoretical references from Foucault, Alain Badiou, Jurandir Costa and Ismail Xavier, about the concepts of audiovisual images, ways of subjectivation and external subjectivity. The aim of the study is to reflect on gender and sexuality issues in a spectacle culture, from a movie narrative in which such values are questioned. There is an analysis of children's bodies and their way of seeing the world, as expressed by the character Olive, with gestures, silence and mystery, rather than a revelation of senses. Such practices may suggest other ways of considering the relations between media, childhood and gender and sexuality issues.

O estudo é feito a partir das análises sobre a questão da sociedade de controle, de Gilles Deleuze; da estruturação dos espaços através do pensamento de Marc Augé; e do pensamento sobre os movimentos sociais, de Alain Touraine. Uma análise sobre os movimentos de ocupação de praças públicas no século XXI estabelece o ponto inicial do artigo, desenvolvendo a partir daí os desdobramentos da ocupação na Universidade de Vanderbilt. Partindo desse pressuposto foi feita uma etnografia sobre o Occupy Vanderbilt, relacionando o surgimento dessa nova proposta de ativismo social e sua relação com a sociedade de controle cotidianamente presente no mundo contemporâneo. Palavras-chave: Movimentos de ocupação. Sociedade de controle. Resistência.  Abstract: The article in question aims to analyze the occupation created at Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tennessee, in the wake of the occupation movements in 2012, just as the Occupy Wall Street. The study is made from the analysis on the issue of control society, by Gilles Deleuze; the structuring of space through thought of Marc Augé; and the thinking of social movements, by Alain Touraine. An analysis of the occupation movements in public squares in the twenty-first century establishes the starting point of the article, developing from there the consequences of the occupation at Vanderbilt University. Based on this assumption was made an ethnography about the Occupy Vanderbilt, relating the emergence of this new proposal for social activism and its relation to the daily control of our society in the contemporary world. Keywords: occupation movements.

    Full Text Available The purpose of this study is to investigate the ways of achieving Science, Technology and Innovation (STI in UAE. Previously, sustainability within an entrepreneurship context has been related to economic viability as opposed to sustainability in its broadest sense. Through a survey research method, we have highlighted the effects of three independent variables and two intervening variables on three important outcomes, innovation, need for achievement and motivation, which ultimately contributes towards STI. These data have been collected from the students of a well-known university in Al-Ain, UAE. The responses of 251 students have been utilized for analysis. For hypotheses testing, we used AMOS 18 (Structural Equation Modeling and SPSS 20. The study revealed that all of the predictors have a strong effect on the outcome variables, which leads to STI in UAE. There is a strong need to revise the curriculum of higher education institutions of UAE to develop self-confidence, locus of control and risk taking propensity among students. The study provides novel insight into entrepreneurship education and serves as an initial benchmark in the field.

    Full Text Available The present article considers the symbolical values of the circle in the novel Cartea șoaptelor (The Book of Whispers by Varujan Vosganian from a hermeneutical point of view (Gilbert Durand, Jean Chevalier and Alain Gheerbrant. Moreover, from a spatial perspective, the circles of death are regarded as a double spiral, negative and positive, and the passage of characters such as Yusuf through this double spiral is the equivalent of a symbolical death and a resurrection in a new form. Moreover, taking over Paul Ricoeur’s idea (Memory, History, Forgetting of a text being considered a sepulchre for the absents of history (Michel de Certeau, the text of The Book of Whispers is regarded and analysed as a text of the voice of those who have disappeared and died without their story being known. The roundness of character and ultimately that of transcending sufferance that the novel incorporates is rendered exactly by these circle-stories and by their polyphony.

    Full Text Available Globalization is irreversible and the Internet is increasingly used to connect people and share information worldwide. The proliferation of digital information allows us to make choices about how we gather information and use technology to enhance learning. This is especially true in an academic environment, where the Internet is often used as a tool to facilitate deeper learning. The focus of this study is to investigate whether and how to use blogs to boost student learning in a traditional learning environment where lecture based (didactic instructional practices still prevailing. This paper will also look at Al-Ain University of Science and Technology (AAU student perceptions of the benefits of blogs for enhancing college learning. To explore these issues, Blogging was introduced to students in the Internet Technology class. A combination of one hundred and ninety-nine graduate and undergraduate AAU students answered an online questionnaire exploring their perceptions of blogs as a learning tool. Quantitative and qualitative data was also collected through open-ended questionnaires, student journals and reports, and end-of-class e-portfolios. All statistical analyses were carried out with SPSS. Results indicate that blogs have the potential to empower and enhance student learning. Student response to using blogs in the course has been overwhelmingly positive.

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Camelia Raghinaru

    2015-06-01

    Full Text Available This essay starts from the premise that André Breton’s First Manifesto of Surrealism constitutes the ‘event’ of that movement (i.e., ‘event’ as defined in Alain Badiou’s Ethics, an event subsequently betrayed by its subject, André Breton, in his encounter with Nadja. Situated between rupture and repetition, the opportunity of the event returns in the Second Manifesto of Surrealism. Taking as its target Breton’s novel Nadja, the essay addresses the issue of event as repetition and explores the ramifications of the ‘failure’ to ‘imagine’ one’s continued fidelity to the event. Consequently, this article reads Nadja as a ‘failure’: the failure posed by representation itself, but also the failure of representation to completely annihilate the promise of a “beyond” encrypted in the project of surrealist imagination. Thus, I would like to play off the idea of failure in two complementary ways. First, I look at the ‘failure’ that is more significant than any achievement. Second, I address the failures at particular missed moments in history, expressed as a series of ‘returns’ in Nadja. Finally, the point of tension between the two types of failures in Nadja elicits a reading of Breton as a reactive, rather than an immortal Subject.

Nesse processo, o cinema pode entrar na escola como potência criadora: promover o encontro dos(as alunos(as com diferentes experiências estéticas; provocar a dúvida, o questionamento, colocando em xeque o lugar-comum, os padrões socioculturais, as identidades fixas. A experiência com Cine Debate em escolas públicas de Ensino Médio, nos municípios do Rio de Janeiro e Niterói, permitiu problematizar a produção cinematográfica, favorecer a aproximação do cinema com a escola, contribuir para a ampliação do número de filmes brasileiros assistidos, questionar o que consideramos "olhar". Por meio de uma pesquisa qualitativa, percebemos o desejo dos estudantes em aprofundar os temas discutidos, conhecemos seus gêneros cinematográficos preferidos e a frequência com que assistem a filmes. Esse resultado indica a continuidade da experiência com o Cine Debate.

    Full Text Available Siguiendo la tesis del sociólogo Alain Ehrenberg, la depresión se instaló en las sociedades occidentales como una consecuencia de las nuevas modalidades del individuo. La emancipación y la soberanía individual comenzadas en el siglo de las luces trajeron consigo nuevos malestares de la mente. La neurastenia resume la primera “epidemia” mundial que muestra las consecuencias de estas mutaciones antropológicas. La neurosis y el psicoanálisis demuestran que la depresión y otras formas de sufrimiento de las personas ordinarias son el resultado de un precio a pagar por entrar en la civilización. Para Ehrenberg, la epidemia contemporánea de depresión es el rostro de un eclipse de la culpabilidad y el conflicto interior, favoreciendo una apertura de infinitas posibilidades y la consagración personal como nuevos ideales constitutivos de la personalidad y la identidad, siendo la depresión una disfunción o insuficiencia a convertirse en uno mismo. Sin embargo, las tesis de Ehrenberg no toman en cuenta el esfuerzo realizado por la industria farmacéutica y el dispositivo comercial y de mercadeo creado para modificar las costumbres y el saber médico, facilitando así la explosión diagnóstica y autodiagnóstica de este trastorno controversial.

    Full Text Available Este ensayo pretende ayudar a desenmarañar una parte del discurso sobre desarrollo sustentable mediante la construcción de una taxonomía de modelos de desarrollo sustentable. La misma taxonomía se basa en una revisión literaria extensiva que en cierta medida privilegia la experiencia mexicana. De este modo, el ensayo presenta y compara tanto modelos normativos como positivos. Los modelos incluidos son el modelo dominante, el cual corresponde con la estrategia esbozada en el Informe Bruntland y Agenda 21; la ecología política, un modelo desarrollado por el economista francés Alain Lipietz; el modelo comunitario de desarrollo sustentable, cuyas raíces se encuentran en una escuela de pensamiento de la década de los setenta conocida como el “otro desarrollo”; el comercio justo, una experiencia cuyas raíces se encuentran en las comunidades indígenas de Oaxaca; la producción forestal industrial comunitaria, que ha sido puesta en práctica por varias comunidades forestales en el sur y el centro del país; el activismo ambiental, sobre todo respecto a los con- fl ictos locales que giran en torno al control de los recursos naturales; y la conservación basada en la comunidad, cuya manifestación principal es la reserva de la biosfera

    2014-06-01

    Full Text Available Adorno (1971 consideraba que el modernismo es tan sólo un aspecto, quizás incluso irrelevante, del proyecto moderno y alertaba, a su modo, contra la tentación de sacrificar la parte para salvar el todo, aunque era consciente, sin embargo, del riesgo que comportaba una excesiva o absorbente identificación de la parte con el todo. Criticar el modernismo no necesariamente debe confundirse con negarle validez a la modernidad tout court. Pero, alertados acerca de ese riesgo, se debe, sin duda, emprender una crítica al modernismo porque, no hacerlo, puede abrirle el camino, como lo está abriendo, al más torpe neoconservadurismo –Alain Badiou (2007, con inocultable galocentrismo, nos diría, más bien, al petainismo– de una política que postula sin tregua un retorno acrítico y nostálgico al pasado.

    Negli ultimi decenni alcuni filosofi continentali dichiaratamente non-religiosi si appellano alla tradizione del cristianesimo al fine di ripensare criticamente e politicamente il presente. Questo saggio prende in considerazione la categoria biblica di agape (amore, analizzandone in primo luogo l’enigma semantico e, in secondo luogo, la sua ricaduta teorico-pratica nella prospettiva filosofica di tre autori contemporanei: Charles Taylor, Slavoj Žižek e Alain Badiou. Sia nel primo autore, che si muove entro uno sfondo simpatetico rispetto alla tradizione cristiana, sia negli altri due filosofi secolari, la categoria di agape può offrire un contributo significativo per una nuova auto-comprensione dell’esperienza religiosa nella condizione presente. Nello stesso tempo, agape può rappresentare un fattore reattivo rispetto alla violenza, in tutte le sue espressioni, alla mancanza di senso e di futuro e al crescente cinismo e fondamentalismo della società globale. Il dialogo fra tradizione biblico/cristiana e pensiero laico ha lo scopo di mostrare come, attraverso un processo di traduzione e dislocazione in altri contesti e linguaggi, concetti chiave del Cristianesimo possono raggiungere una nuova leggibilità e universalità entro il contesto culturale attuale, diventando generativi di un discorso comune.

    Even though Alain Badiou depicts himself and his philosophy as “militant atheist” there is, as he himself has pointed out, nevertheless several theological notions present in his work. This presence of theological language is not restricted to his book on the Apostle Paul, but can be found...... throughout his work. This paper focuses on Badiou’s substantial use of the term “grace” as a metaphor for the exceptional occurrence that he defines in philosophical terms as an “event”. The aim of the paper is to identify the context in which Badiou comes to use, and the sources from which he draws...... the metaphor of “grace”, and thus to contribute to a more precise understanding of what he means by this metaphor. The paper will identify the key instances in which Badiou employs the term “grace” in an effort to clarify how he understands it and what ends he intends it to serve. And in contrast...

    Full Text Available Este artículo reinterpreta a Hegel y su visión de la historia desde el sur global. El escrito sitúa las Lecciones de Filosofía de la Historia de Hegel en el contexto de la expansión colonial europea a las Américas en 1492 y el surgimiento del imperio estadounidense desde 1898 hasta hoy. El artículo desarrolla una crítica a la visión hegeliana del futuro y provincializa el hegelianismo sacándolo de la narrativa de la historia universal y situándolo en la historia de los imperialismos occidentales El artículo hace una lectura de Hegel contra Hegel mismo como pensador de la no-identidad, de la alteridad. La singularidad como categoría que niega tanto lo general como lo particular es defendida frente a cierta lectura sobre Hegel que piensa el concepto como la subsunción de lo particular en lo general. El artículo hace una lectura de la novela de José Revueltas Los Errores como antecedente de las preguntas que Alain Badiou se hizo 40 años después. Finaliza defendiendo un comunismo de izquierda.

    Full Text Available For anyone willing to accept the two primary theses of Alain Badiou#39;s emBeing and Event/emmdash;that mathematics is ontology, and that there is an inconsistency that cannot be exhausted by presentationmdash;a number of questions immediately follow. To accept that mathematics is ontology may prove useful for one particular set of problems (for example, finding the most adequate means of understanding multiplicity, but this only opens the door to a whole series of other problems. To give only the most general and obvious example, there is an uncertainty surrounding the particular relation between mathematical being (inconsistent multiplicity and its manifestation in particular situations. Badiou maintains that the relations between a situation and its latent being are purely subtractive insofar as presentation is an operation that presents particular beings as multiples and not multiplicity as such. What we are left with, then, is not so much a relation that follows from the inherent limitations of either presentation or language (however limited they may in fact be, but rather an axiomatic presupposition that the nothingness that escapes presentation is an inaugural existence. Being, in other words, is not inferred from presentation, but axiomatized. And as Deleuze has shown in his reading of Spinoza, axioms can just as readily generate positive manifestations (or expressions of being. This creates problems if Badiou wishes to create an effective connection between axiomatized being and its manifestation in situations (through presentation or forcing.

    2014-02-01

    Full Text Available The Heideggerian account of the ontotheological constitution of Western metaphysics has been extremely influential for contemporary philosophy of religion and for philosophical perspectives on theology and the divine. This paper introduces and contrasts two central strategies for approaching the question of the divine in a non- or post-ontotheological manner. The first and more established approach is that of post-Heideggerian hermeneutics and deconstruction, inspired by Heidegger’s suggestion of a “theology without the word ‘being’” and by his later notions of an “ultimate god” and of “divinities” as one of the four axes of the fourfold (Geviert. Here, the divine is no longer articulated in terms of the supreme or absolute being, but as one of the interdependent dimensions of finite and contextual meaningful presence. The more recent approach introduced by Alain Badiou and Quentin Meillassoux dissociates itself from the Heideggerian hermeneutics of finitude and adopts mathematics as its basic ontological model. Rather than focusing on meaning and sense, Badiou and Meillassoux replace ontotheological metaphysics with materialist frameworks. With regard to the divine, this approach leads either to a contemporary version of atheism (Badiou or to the reintroduction of a divine entity, but now a merely possible and contingent one (Meillassoux.

Para ello se discutirán algunos de los principales planteamientos que al respecto han desarrollado tres pensadores de nuestra época, Hannah Arendt, Alain Badiou y Slavoj ¿i¿ek, sin dejar, por cierto, de hacer una referencia lateral a Michel Foucault y Antonio Negri.

    Full Text Available The essay reconstructs the political discourses of Alain Badiou and Slavoj Žižek, concerning communism and its actuality for the contemporary debate. Both philosophers have a main role in the global philosophical scene in which they maintain different but partially complementary positions. Except for some philosophical divergences, they both affirm the necessity to reopen a theoretical effort, which could eventually develop an idea of communism and communist practices able to face new challenges imposed by capitalistic globalization. Badiou intends to spread the idea of communism through a theoretical and political procedure called "ideation", which should create new militants and followers to the communist revolutionary event. According to this view the State remains the main enemy to this possibility. Žižek, on the contrary, seems to look with favour on the Lacanian dynamic of denegation which could recreate the necessary conditions for the repetition of the communist revolution; which, this time, instead of ending up in tragedy or in farce, should produce a sort of enlightened new statism.

    2017-12-01

    Full Text Available One of the challenges in analyzing youth who participated in the recent Arab uprisings relates to explaining and understanding their revolutionary practices. Adopting a leaderless and cross-ideological form of mobilization, youth during the eighteen days of the Egyptian uprising managed to practice inclusion by uniting a diverse group of Egyptians. After toppling Mubarak, the revolutionary youth, however, did not present themselves as aiming to seize power, a defining feature of revolutions at least until the 1970s. To understand the meaning of these new cross-ideological and leaderless forms of mobilization, I suggest understanding youth within their time and space. Drawing on Alain Badiou and his conception of the intervallic period and the rebirth of history through the Arab revolts, this article highlights important differences among this generation in their conception of doing politics. More specifically, this paper focuses on the changed meaning of the hero figure, highlighting the importance of inclusionary politics. It will suggest that since the 2011 revolutionary event, a shift away from traditional politics based on a leader and an ideology is being contested for a more inclusionary politics as desired by the younger generation in Egypt.

    Full Text Available Les pensées contemporaines de l’événement, tout comme la langue de tous, déterminent l’événement comme étant une exception sur l’ordre normal du monde. À la différence des faits, les événements ont un caractère exceptionnel qui provient pour l’essentiel de leur caractère assigné, adressé. Alors que les faits intramondains sont ouverts à tous, l’événement est toujours vécu à la première personne, de façon unique et non-itérable. Grâce à une lecture comparée des théories de l’événement de Claude Romano, Alain Badiou et Jean-Luc Marion, nous questionnons ce problème de l’adresse et posons une adestination essentielle de l’événement, nous obligeant par là à penser non pas une exceptionnalité de l’événement mais au contraire sa grande banalité.

    Full Text Available Alain Mina,1 Rachel Yoder,2 Priyanka Sharma1 1Division of Medical Oncology, Department of Internal Medicine, University of Kansas Medical Center, Westwood, 2University of Kansas Cancer Center, Kansas City, KS, USA Abstract: Triple-negative breast cancer (TNBC is an aggressive subtype associated with frequent recurrence and metastasis. Unlike hormone receptor-positive subtypes, treatment of TNBC is currently limited by the lack of clinically available targeted therapies. Androgen signaling is necessary for normal breast development, and its dysregulation has been implicated in breast tumorigenesis. In recent years, gene expression studies have identified a subset of TNBC that is enriched for androgen receptor (AR signaling. Interference with androgen signaling in TNBC is promising, and AR-inhibiting drugs have shown antitumorigenic activity in preclinical and proof of concept clinical studies. Recent advances in our understanding of androgenic signaling in TNBC, along with the identification of interacting pathways, are allowing development of the next generation of clinical trials with AR inhibitors. As novel AR-targeting agents are developed and evaluated in clinical trials, it is equally important to establish a robust set of biomarkers for identification of TNBC tumors that are most likely to respond to AR inhibition. Keywords: triple-negative breast cancer, androgen signaling, targeted therapy, biomarkers, prognosis

    Mobile phone coverage has grown, particularly within low- and middle-income countries (LMICs), presenting an opportunity to augment routine health surveillance programs. Several LMICs and global health partners are seeking opportunities to launch basic mobile phone-based surveys of noncommunicable diseases (NCDs). The increasing use of such technology in LMICs brings forth a cluster of ethical challenges; however, much of the existing literature regarding the ethics of mobile or digital health focuses on the use of technologies in high-income countries and does not consider directly the specific ethical issues associated with the conduct of mobile phone surveys (MPS) for NCD risk factor surveillance in LMICs. In this paper, we explore conceptually several of the central ethics issues in this domain, which mainly track the three phases of the MPS process: predata collection, during data collection, and postdata collection. These include identifying the nature of the activity; stakeholder engagement; appropriate design; anticipating and managing potential harms and benefits; consent; reaching intended respondents; data ownership, access and use; and ensuring LMIC sustainability. We call for future work to develop an ethics framework and guidance for the use of mobile phones for disease surveillance globally. ©Joseph Ali, Alain B Labrique, Kara Gionfriddo, George Pariyo, Dustin G Gibson, Bridget Pratt, Molly Deutsch-Feldman, Adnan A Hyder.

    2015-01-01

    Expository paper providing a historical survey of the gradual transformation of the 'philosophical discussions' between Bohr, Einstein and Schrödinger on foundational issues in quantum mechanics into a quantitative prediction of a new quantum effect, its experimental verification and its proposed (and loudly advertised) applications. The basic idea of the 1935 paper of Einstein-Podolsky-Rosen (EPR) was reformulated by David Bohm for a finite dimensional spin system. This allowed John Bell to derive his inequalities that separate the prediction of quantum entanglement from its possible classical interpretation. We reproduce here their later (1971) version, reviewing on the way the generalization (and mathematical derivation) of Heisenberg's uncertainty relations (due to Weyl and Schrödinger) needed for the passage from EPR to Bell. We also provide an improved derivation of the quantum theoretic violation of Bell's inequalities. Soon after the experimental confirmation of the quantum entanglement (culminating with the work of Alain Aspect) it was Feynman who made public the idea of a quantum computer based on the observed effect

    Full Text Available Resumo Vivemos uma crise de autoridade no mundo moderno e seu impacto no âmbito educacional tem sido objeto de análises e críticas sob diferentes perspectivas. De acordo com Hannah Arendt, esse não é um fenômeno gerado na esfera da educação, não obstante, seu impacto nesse âmbito apareça aos olhos da autora como o sintoma mais evidente da profundidade e seriedade desta crise. Este trabalho tem por objetivo analisar o conceito de autoridade na obra de Hannah Arendt, propondo uma abordagem que busca romper com as perspectivas que veem a autoridade como um epifenômeno do poder. Desse modo, busca-se lançar um olhar sobre a autoridade como um elemento consubstancial à educação e não como um mero instrumento de poder, submissão e sujeição de indivíduos. Assim, num primeiro momento, será apresentada a perspectiva de Alain Renaut, filósofo francês que, em sua abordagem da autoridade, dialoga direta e criticamente com Arendt. Em seguida, será apresentada a origem do conceito sob a perspectiva de Hannah Arendt, bem como sua relação com a educação.

    Full Text Available Auteur important bien qu’atypique de la Renaissance de Harlem et premier anthropologue afro-américain à avoir étudié sa propre culture, Zora Neale Hurston est, à de nombreux titres, un écrivain d’exception. Contrairement à d’autres, dont Robert Wright et Alain Locke, Hurston ne renie nullement le legs culturel que représente le folklore noir qu’elle apprécie selon ses propres critères, folklore qui influencera tant la forme que le fond de son art. Anthropologue de formation, Hurston appréhende néanmoins la culture noire américaine du sud non pas comme un vestige du passé qu’il conviendrait de conserver précieusement intact, mais comme une partie intégrante du vécu actuel. À travers les stratégies discursives orales vernaculaires qu’elle adopte et adapte de la tradition folklorique afro-américaine, Hurston, en pionnière, ouvre une voie et donne une voix aux écrivains Noirs à venir.

    Focused Assessment Sonography for Trauma (FAST) is not widely practiced by Trauma Surgeons in the Middle East despite its international acceptance. A FAST course was established by the Trauma Group at the Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences at United Arab Emirates (UAE) University aiming to introduce doctors who have limited experience of ultrasound to the basics of FAST. This article summarizes the content of the course; the evaluation of the participants and their recommendations. An 8 hour FAST course was offered to 18 participants in May 2004 in the Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences, UAE University, Al-Ain, UAE. Lectures with syllabus material were used to cover the following topics: basic ultrasound physics, knobology and sonographic orientation, the FAST scan, chest and cardiac trauma sonographic evaluation, training and credentialing issues. Each participant received 3 hours of hands-on ultrasound instruction. On completion of the course participants responded anonymously to an evaluation questionnaire. All participants responded to the questionnaire (100% response rate). Delegates found the course well organized, relevant, met their needs and encourages them to use FAST in their own practice. The course objectives were met. Participants suggested that including actual patients and the use of animal models improve the practical sessions. Organizing a FAST course is an important step towards recognizing and implementing it in practice. Nevertheless, there is a need for appropriate quality assurance and credentialing guidelines before commencing. (author)

    Full Text Available our current world introduces itself as a unique and omnipresent world: the world of the globalized capitalism in which all the relationships, to a greater or lesser extent, have been commercialized, and everything (products and information can arrive to every corner of the planet. diversity is accepted as one more element of the (commercial or cultural merchandise’s circulation, and fits a homogeneous frame in which everything has an allocated place. some contributions from alain badiou are employed in this work in order to deal with this matter, trying to show its constitutive scheme, and to offer some alternative perspectives. the main interest is to display the possibility of thinking a world that makes space to all the possible worlds, and not a world that is the result of the mere planetary subjugation to the expansion of the capital, nor the simple “tolerant” acceptance of the “other”. the link among humans’ conception will be the basis to re-think the education matter in today’s world.

  17. CMS: the first barrel ring completed!

    CERN Multimedia

    2000-01-01

    Seven years after design studies began, CERN and the German company DWE have erected the first of the five CMS yoke rings, a giant component weighing 1200 tonnes. The first ring of the CMS magnet yoke, a twelve-sided 15-metre-high colossus, has been erected in the new hall at Point 5 near Cessy. For the last few days it has stood unaided, no longer relying on the central structure required for its assembly. Its construction marks an important milestone in the CMS programme, the culmination of seven years of work at CERN and over two years of manufacturing at DWE. Awarded the contract by the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH), Zürich, the German manufacturer has produced and assembled the ring components in collaboration with a team from CERN. This feat of mechanical engineering was celebrated two weeks ago at a drink attended by the main protagonists, headed by Franz Kufner, divisional manager at DWE, Franz Leher, production engineer at DWE, Alain Hervé, CMS technical coordinator,...

  18. The Mysteries of the Quantum World

    CERN Multimedia

    2005-01-01

    As part of the World Year of Physics, the Physics Section of the University of Geneva is organising a series of lectures for the uninitiated. Each of the lectures will begin with a demonstration in the auditorium of the detection of cosmic rays and, in collaboration with Professor E. Ellberger of the Conservatoire de Musique de Genève, of how these signals from the farthest reaches of the Universe can be used to create 'cosmic music'. The sixth lecture, entitled 'Einstein's objections to the quantum computer', tackles a mysterious subject, one which Einstein had numerous doubts about. The lecture will be given by Professor Alain Aspect of the Orsay Institute for Optics. In 1935 Einstein discovered a mind-boggling property of quantum mechanics: entanglement, which conflicted with his realist and localised vision of the world. This led him into a heated debate with Niels Bohr. We now know that entangled 'twin photons', even when separated by distances of dozens of kilometres, have this extraordinary proper...

  19. Creating a “Vocabulary of Rupture” Following WWII Sexual Violence in Hungarian Women Writers’ Narratives

    2017-09-01

    Full Text Available In this paper, Schwartz analyses three narratives by Hungarian women writers— Alaine Polcz’s Asszony a fronton (A Wartime Memoir, Judit Kováts’s Megtagadva [‘Denied’] and Fanni Gyarmati Miklósné Radnóti’s Napló [‘Diary’]—with regard to their representation of the rapes of Hungarian women by Red Army soldiers during WWII. Schwartz examines to what degree the rapes are positioned as a “rupture” in the first person narrators’ lives, and how the three narratives offer elements of a “vocabulary of rupture” (Butalia 2000 so as to work through traumatic memory and thus come to terms with both the short-term and long-term effects of trauma and social stigmatization. Even though the narratives eschew a black-and-white portrayal of the rapists, an orientalist stereotying is nonetheless present. Schwartz concludes with Avery Gordon that these and other rape narratives can be read as part of the process of settling the ghosts of a still unresolved past violence yet beyond simple ideological binaries along the victim-perpetrator line.

    The Anglo-French Physical Acoustics Conference (AFPAC) had its 10th annual meeting in Villa Clythia, Fréjus, France, from 19-21 January 2011. This series of meetings is a collaboration between the Physical Acoustics Group (PAG) of the Institute of Physics and the Groupe d'Acoustique Physique, Sous-marine et UltraSonore (GAPSUS) of the Société Française d'Acoustique. The conference has its loyal supporters whom we wish to thank. It is their loyalty that has made this conference a success. AFPAC alternates between the UK and France and its format has been designed to ensure that it remains a friendly meeting of very high scientific quality, offering a broad spectrum of subjects, welcoming young researchers and PhD students and giving them the opportunity to give their first presentations in an 'international' conference, but with limited pressure. For the third consecutive year AFPAC is followed by the publication of its proceedings in the form of 18 peer-reviewed papers, which cover the most recent research developments in the field of Physical Acoustics in the UK and France.

  1. Spectral analysis and the Riemann hypothesis

    Science.gov (United States)

    Lachaud, Gilles

    2003-11-01

    The explicit formulas of Riemann and Guinand-Weil relate the set of prime numbers with the set of nontrivial zeros of the zeta function of Riemann. We recall Alain Connes' spectral interpretation of the critical zeros of the Riemann zeta function as eigenvalues of the absorption spectrum of an unbounded operator in a suitable Hilbert space. We then give a spectral interpretation of the zeros of the Dedekind zeta function of an algebraic number field K of degree n in an automorphic setting. If K is a complex quadratic field, the torical forms are the functions defined on the modular surface X, such that the sum of this function over the "Gauss set" of K is zero, and Eisenstein series provide such torical forms. In the case of a general number field, one can associate to K a maximal torus T of the general linear group G. The torical forms are the functions defined on the modular variety X associated to G, such that the integral over the subvariety induced by T is zero. Alternately, the torical forms are the functions which are orthogonal to orbital series on X. We show here that the Riemann hypothesis is equivalent to certain conditions bearing on spaces of torical forms, constructed from Eisenstein series, the torical wave packets. Furthermore, we define a Hilbert space and a self-adjoint operator on this space, whose spectrum equals the set of critical zeros of the Dedekind zeta function of K.

  6. Health Surveys Using Mobile Phones in Developing Countries: Automated Active Strata Monitoring and Other Statistical Considerations for Improving Precision and Reducing Biases.

    Labrique, Alain; Blynn, Emily; Ahmed, Saifuddin; Gibson, Dustin; Pariyo, George; Hyder, Adnan A

    2017-05-05

    In low- and middle-income countries (LMICs), historically, household surveys have been carried out by face-to-face interviews to collect survey data related to risk factors for noncommunicable diseases. The proliferation of mobile phone ownership and the access it provides in these countries offers a new opportunity to remotely conduct surveys with increased efficiency and reduced cost. However, the near-ubiquitous ownership of phones, high population mobility, and low cost require a re-examination of statistical recommendations for mobile phone surveys (MPS), especially when surveys are automated. As with landline surveys, random digit dialing remains the most appropriate approach to develop an ideal survey-sampling frame. Once the survey is complete, poststratification weights are generally applied to reduce estimate bias and to adjust for selectivity due to mobile ownership. Since weights increase design effects and reduce sampling efficiency, we introduce the concept of automated active strata monitoring to improve representativeness of the sample distribution to that of the source population. Although some statistical challenges remain, MPS represent a promising emerging means for population-level data collection in LMICs. ©Alain Labrique, Emily Blynn, Saifuddin Ahmed, Dustin Gibson, George Pariyo, Adnan A Hyder.

  9. The regulation of greenhouse gas emissions in the field of transport; La regulation des emissions de gaz a effet de serre dans le domaine du transport

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    NONE

    2009-03-15

    Since 1990, CO{sub 2} emissions in the transport sector have increased by nearly 20%, mainly because of increased car traffic. Reducing them by 20% between now and 2020, in accordance with the draft law tabled by the Grenelle Environment Forum - and by much more between now and 2050 in the context of reducing European emissions by 75% - presupposes recourse to economic instruments such as the climate-energy contribution envisaged by the Forum. However, the methods of evaluation and implementation remain to be defined. The order of magnitude of such instruments could correspond to the value defined for the socio-economic calculations of public projects by a Centre d'Analyse Strategique mission that was set up at the request of the Prime Minister and chaired by Alain Quinet. It will thus be close to 30 euros per CO{sub 2} ton today, rising to 100 euros in 2030 and between 150 and 350 euros in 2050. However, this value cannot be used as such in the economy - and particularly in the form of a tax - without precautions, both for social reasons and reasons of economic competitiveness. The purpose of this Strategic Newswatch is to contribute to the debate by envisaging, within a European framework, the different forms that the regulation of transport greenhouse gas emissions could take.

    Full Text Available Alain MonnierInstitut Régional Fédératif du Cancer (IFRC, Centre Hospitalier Belfort-Montbéliard, Montbéliard, FranceAbstract: Aromatase inhibitors (AIs are becoming more widely used than tamoxifen as adjuvant hormonal therapy for postmenopausal women (PMW with early breast cancer (EBC. It is clear that these drugs offer important efficacy benefits over tamoxifen and differ from tamoxifen in their safety profile. The accepted strategies for adjuvant AI therapy include initial adjuvant treatment following surgery, switching and/or sequencing from prior tamoxifen, and extended adjuvant therapy following the full 5 years of tamoxifen treatment. Among the available AIs, letrozole has been evaluated in large, well-controlled, double-blind clinical trials in the initial adjuvant, extended adjuvant, and more recently, the sequential adjuvant settings. Letrozole is the most potent of the AIs and provides near complete suppression of plasma estrogens in PMW. Letrozole also significantly reduces the occurrence of early distant metastases, the most lethal type of recurrence event, which can lead to improved survival. Clinical comparisons of letrozole with both tamoxifen and placebo have also provided important long-term safety data on the use of AIs as adjuvant therapy in PMW with EBC. The weight of clinical evidence indicates that letrozole is a safe and effective option for adjuvant hormonal therapy across all three AI treatment settings.Keywords: aromatase inhibitor, breast cancer, hormonal therapy, letrozole, postmenopausal women, tamoxifen

    Full Text Available Este artigo propõe realizar uma leitura de dois artistas considerados modernos: o uruguaio Joaquín Torres-García e o português Amadeo de Souza-Cardoso. O ponto de partida desta reflexão é o verbete “Informe” de Georges Bataille, publicado no ano de 1929 no Dicionário crítico da revista Documents (1929-1931. Trazemos para a discussão a leitura realizada por Rosalind Krauss e Yve-Alain Bois, por ocasião da exposição L’informe. Mode d’emploi, em que o verbete batailleano é transformado em operação de caráter performativo. Partindo desses teóricos, pretende-se investigar os possíveis desdobramentos de alguns conceitos caros à modernidade, que circulam em torno do esgotamento das vanguardas e se elaboram em processo simultâneo aos próprios movimentos. Além dos trabalhos de Krauss e Bois, alguns textos críticos a respeito de outras obras de Bataille e também sobre a teoria da modernidade servem de referência, ao longo desse ensaio, para contrapor e apresentar as singularidades de duas produções artísticas.

    History came full circle on Saturday 23 October, when CERN's 50th anniversary celebrations drew to a close with a ceremony at Geneva University's Institut de Physique. For it was here, on the banks of the River Arve, that CERN's first staff members, from the PS Magnets Group, came to work in October 1953. Since that day, there has not been a break in the collaboration between CERN and the Institut de Physique de Genève. "We cooperate very closely in the fields of experimental and theoretical particle physics, of course, but also in applied and materials physics," says Alain Blondel, Professor at Geneva University (ATLAS member and neutrino factory promoter) and organiser of the ceremony. "For instance, the Physics Section has just developed a superconducting magnet capable of reaching a continuous magnetic field of 21.3 Tesla, which is of great interest to CERN." The ceremony, interspersed with "cosmic" musical interludes, was an opportunity to recall this partnership that is more than fifty years old. A c...

    Full Text Available O ensaio empreende uma discussão da proposta da sociologia pública de Michael Burawoy, nos anos 2000, a partir da confrontação com a intervenção sociológica de Alain Touraine, formulada nos anos 1970. Pontos de contato são detectados no que diz respeito à relação entre pesquisador e pesquisado, como atores sociais. Problemas e limitações, tanto da intervenção sociológica quanto da sociologia pública, são elencados, trazendo-se como apoio exemplos extraídos de trabalho de campo próprio. O texto vale-se também da inspiração de Antonio Gramsci e sua concepção da relação entre senso comum e intelectuais. Ao invés de um juízo conclusivo, propõe-se um diálogo entre os autores, todos preocupados, à sua maneira, com o destino público ou cívico do conhecimento obtido sobre o mundo social.

    Full Text Available The main concern this articles deals with is, first, the elusive conceptual definition of the «radical right». In the last years a, so called, new consensus, has been developed in the literature of this field. The core of this new consensus about the radical right is the palingentic form of nationalism, form this pant of view the decadentism and the claim for a social renewal is a central point in the political thought of the radical right. In this article we deal with the decadent subjects of the radical right, pointing mainly to the apocalyptic tone of some major contributors of the radical right in the interwar France and Germany. In the second part we analyze the role of decadentism in the cotemporary work of some relevant authors of the European radical right, Alain de Benoist and Julius Evola. Finally we translate their idea of decadence of Europe to the political arena as shown the discourses of some right extremist European parties.

    Using a distinction first proposed by Alain Touraine between historic and social movements, Ghanem's review of grassroots initiatives in Brazil argues that, despite differences in composition and aims, movements such as the landless rural workers, indigenous groups, and the women's movement in Brazil have attempted to shift the current socioeconomic order toward a new equilibrium - a process that is, however, not yet complete. In Ghanem's view, these movements are best described as historic movements. Addressing their educational aims, the author finds that they tend to fall into two types: (1) the self-provision of knowledge related to the set of problems that gave rise to their movement in the first place; (2) the striving for access to knowledge that is due to them as citizens and yet not given to them by the state. Often, social movements in Brazil are obliged to offer educational services through their own resources, services which are characterized by precarious conditions and which make the right to quality education still a distant dream.

  7. Touraine e Bourdieu nas ciências sociais brasileiras: duas recepções diferenciadas

    2013-06-01

    Full Text Available Ao retomar o tema da recepção da obra de Pierre Bourdieu no Brasil, o presente artigo o faz a partir da comparação com a recepção de outro sociólogo francês, Alain Touraine, anteriormente implantado na circulação de ideias e redes de pesquisadores entre os dois países. A trajetória dos dois no que diz respeito a sua relação com o campo das ciências sociais brasileiras pode ser uma pista interessante para o conhecimento de aspectos deste mesmo campo no que se refere a sua inserção na circulação internacional de ideias e de pesquisadores. A bagagem acumulada de sociologia industrial de Touraine fez com que fosse procurado pela sociologia uspiana no momento em que as pesquisas sobre o fenômeno industrial de São Paulo eclodiam. Já a apropriação de Bourdieu incide sobre gerações subsequentes, e, ao ter adquirido renome nos anos 1990 nos países anglo-saxônicos, já era bem conhecido nos círculos especializados brasileiros.

    1998-01-01

    Full Text Available O artigo se apóia numa discussão da obra do sociólogo francês Alain Touraine para encaminhar uma conceituação da relação entre movimentos sociais e sociedade civil nos quadros do neofuncionalismo. Desafiando o modelo marxista clássico e outros que de algum modo compartilham com ele supostos utilitários, embora nem sempre teleológicos, o autor enfatiza o elemento simbólico e cultural na constituição dos movimentos sociais e o papel da contingência no desenho da história, criticando ainda a idéia de que os "novos movimentos sociais" teriam um caráter revolucionário. Alternativamente, postula que os movimentos sociais são uma tradução da sociedade civil, dentro da qual inclusões e exclusões da vida social, a própria idéia de comunidade, são definidas. Estes movimentos operam uma articulação, em grande medida de caráter discursivo, dos problemas de esferas institucionais particulares da sociedade com a metalinguagem da sociedade civil.

    Full Text Available This paper provides the opportunity to discuss the rationale for a new collaborative research project directed at creating a global history of antiquarianism. Conventional histories of archaeology, particularly those by Daniel (e.g. 1976 and to a certain extent Trigger (1987, 2006, stress that antiquarians were in essence amateurs and dilettantes, perfect figures of their age, exemplified by the brilliantly scatty John Aubrey, or by Walter Scott’s grotesque pastiche Jonathan Oldbuck. However, following ground-breaking work by Arnoldo Momigliano (see e.g. 1966, 1990, and later by Alain Schnapp (e.g. 1996 for some time it had become clear that this was an inaccurate rendering – one designed to stress the scientific credentials of the disciplines that grew out and away from antiquarianism: the modern cultural sciences of history, sociology, anthropology, art history, archaeology, and history of religion. For Schnapp, especially in his Discovery of the Past, the division between amateur and professional (a distinction also explored with profit by Phillipa Levine (1986 was not the cause of the triumph of archaeology (or any one of the other disciplines over antiquarianism, and it is ill informed to interpret antiquarianism as a wrong-turning on the pathway to archaeological enlightenment. In this view antiquarianism was, and perhaps still is a full-fledged and (more important continuing body of thought and practice.

    Industrial gas companies have fought hard to boost sales and hold margins in the tough economic climate, and investments are well down from their 1989-'91 peak. But 'our industry is still very strong long term' says Alain Joly, CEO of industry leader L'Air Liquide (AL). By 1994, if a European and Japanese recovery follows through on one in the U.S., 'we could see major [investment] commitments starting again,' he says. 'Noncryogenic production technology is lowering the cost of gas-making possible new applications, oxygen is getting plenty of attention in the environmental area, and hydrogen also fits into the environmental thrust,' says Bob Lovett, executive v.p./gases and equipment with Air Products ampersand Chemicals (AP). Through the 1990's, 'Industrial gases could grow even faster than in the past decade,' he says. Virtually a new generation of new gases applications should become reality by the mid-1990s, says John Campbell, of industry consultants J.R. Campbell ampersand Associates (Lexington, MA). Big new oxygen volumes will be required for powder coal injection in blast furnaces-boosting a steel mill's requirement as much as 40% and coal gasification/combined cycle (CGCC).

    Full Text Available In our time film making is regarded as a powerful teaching tool. Jean Mitry and Alain Bergala, amongst other filmmakers and writers associated with cinema, advocate that filmmaking is not just an art or a way to express culture, but it’s also a way of acquiring knowledge. Bearing these thoughts in mind, we intend in this paper, to point out how learning and education come together in Willy Russell’s film, Educating Rita. This film is based on the social constructivist notion advocated by Piaget (1896-1980 and Vygotsky (1896-1934, in which the determining factors for cognitive development interact with the physical and social environment, with human symbolism and with social interactions. Educating Rita refers to the social, historical and cultural context of the United Kingdom during the70’s, and conveys how the educational process turns out to be a social practice. In this film the student is given a primary role, namely he is responsible for his own learning and proves he can find ways to achieve his goals and being responsible for the consequences of his choices, in a process of experiencing, reflecting and transforming himself through and educational experience he undergoes in adult. In addition to the importance of social context in education, the film focuses on the affective and educational issues and calls up a reflection on the affective dimension during the teaching-learning process.

    Full Text Available The use of vegetated walls and intensive plantation around buildings has increased in popularity in hot and arid climates, such as those in the United Arab Emirates (UAE. This is due to its contribution towards reducing the heat gain and increasing the occupants’ comfort levels in spaces. This paper examines the introduction of plant-shaded walls as passive technique to reduce heat gain in indoor spaces as a strategy to lower cooling demand in hot arid climate of Al-Ain city. Experimental work was carried out to analyze the impact of using plantation for solar control of residential building façades in extreme summer. External and internal wall surface and ambient temperatures were measured for plant-shaded and bare walls. The study concluded that shading effect of the intensive plantation can reduce peak time indoor air temperature by 12 °C and reduce the internal heat gain by 2 kWh daily in the tested space. The economic analysis reveals a payback period of 10 years considering local energy tariff excluding environmental savings.

Though these authors differ in terms of whether they provide explicit support for neo-populist political formations, they share a Heideggerian/ Dasein vision of the world. In their publications they present the same diagnosis of the situation (spiritual and/or racial decadence, set the same priority objectives (palingenesis and use the same cultural reference points (for example, Friedrich Nietzsche and the German Revolutionary Conservatives of the first third of the twentieth century. In view of these traits, it seems justifiable to label them as twenty-first century neo-Nazis.

    2001-06-01

    Full Text Available No two texts better exemplify the contemporary "he said, she said" phenomenon than Annie Ernaux's Passion simple and Alain Gérard's Madame, c'est à vous que j'écris . Ernaux's book, published in 1991, recounts the author's heretofore hidden affair with a foreign businessman living temporarily in France, and Gérard's, published four years later, is an explicit response in which the writer, dissatisfied with Ernaux's account, assumes the lover's identity and chronicles events from his perspective. The result is a literary "tac à tac" very much in the public eye in which a man and woman both wish to tell their side of the story about a past sexual relationship. For her part, Ernaux gives primacy to woman as sexual subject and describes an erotic economy where the lover is nothing more than simple support for the female imaginary. Gérard responds to Ernaux's reduction of the lover to pure sex object by reestablishing his primacy as well as that of the phallus, around which desire has traditionally revolved. Indeed, what is most intriguing about this unusual pair is their disagreement over the definition of desire, and thus, how they illustrate the fundamental feminist notion that gender informs writing as well as reading.

    Full Text Available Departing from the concepts of representation and catastrophe, I propose a reflection about two works dedicated to an event which, on account of its own nature, do not forecast testimonial, dialogue or answer: the Nazism Extermination. By Primo Levi, the first work analyzed comes from literature, it is the book Is this a man? [Se questo è un uomo?], stand out by criticism to offer “a kind of perfect testimonial”. The second one, extracted of cinema, is the film Night and fog [Nuit et brouillard]. Directed by Alain Resnais, it detaches from the typical soppy style of Hollywood’s great productions, to set up a paralleled cutting between present and past: the beauty and the horror, the peace and the chaos, the poetry and the pain, the forgetful and the remembering. Amount, the both works evidence the importance of giving new meanings to the rests, the problems of catastrophe representation and the history extermination in the presence of our virtually times.

    Integrating the progress that has been made on a daily basis since it was jointly commissioned in 2013 by the French National Academy of Medicine (Biotechnology Committee XX, Prof Emmanuel-Alain Cabanis) and the Technologies Academy (Pr Jean de Kervasdoué), this report, covering such a vast subject, can only represent one step in a long process. Summarized here in a volume compatible with the Bulletin, it makes reference to the full report (52 pages ; 22 pages of text, 4 pages of references, a 20-page glossary for physicians, plus 522 figures spanning 6 pages), which is available on the Academy's website. The six chapters first define "health" (WHO) and "informatics" and provide a brief history. The first chapter, on technologies, is divided into "bad" news (cybercrime, ecological risks) and advances relevant to health. The next four chapters describe the contribution of digitization to patient management, ranging from "fragile" individuals (from the gamete to old age and dependency) to healthy subjects trained to work in hostile situations (scuba diving to space exploration), and finally research. The last chapter proposes 7 areas for progress: expansion of the national imaging and communications platforms, stimulation of the medical robotics industry, extension of telemedicine to all medical and surgical specialties, support for drug dispensing and therapeutic education, and foundation of a European portal for m-health certification, research prioritization according to multiyear health plans, and reinforcement of mathematic education, starting in primary school (see: "La main à la pâte" ("Going hands-on").

    2016-09-01

    Full Text Available This article is a reflection on the disjointed and submerged cultural consciousness of the city of Buffalo, New York. It outlines the concept of subjectivity as put forward by the philosopher Alain Badiou, and maps it onto the history of Studio Arena, Buffalo’s main theatre company. Studio Arena Theatre (1927–2008 was one of the oldest and best known regional theatres in the USA. Its closure is a story fraught with conflict, misunderstanding and loss. That there has been no replacement theatre of comparable size and mandate says something about Buffalo’s diminished civic imaginary. While the link between the Theatre and the City is hard to formularise, it is a historically important relationship, going back to the time of Aristotle when theatre functioned as an informing resource for the lives of citizens. Those interested in urban renewal in Buffalo and other rust-belt US cities can profit not only from an understanding of Studio Arena Theatre’s history, but from a consideration of the kind of emotional engagement that this regional theatre represented.

    This study examined the prevalence of high blood pressure, heart disease, and medical diagnoses in relation to blood disorders, among 6,329 adolescent students (age 15 to 18 years) who reside in the United Arab Emirates (UAE). Findings indicated that the overall prevalence of high blood pressure and heart disease was 1.8% and 1.3%, respectively. Overall, the prevalence for thalassemia, sickle-cell anemia, and iron-deficiency anemia was 0.9%, 1.6%, and 5%, respectively. Bivariate analysis revealed statistically significant differences in the prevalence of high blood pressure among the local and expatriate adolescent population in the Emirate of Sharjah. Similarly, statistically significant differences in the prevalence of iron-deficiency anemia were observed among the local and expatriate population in Abu Dhabi city, the western region of Abu Dhabi, and Al-Ain. Multivariate analysis revealed the following significant predictors of high blood pressure: residing in proximity to industry, nonconventional substance abuse, and age when smoking or exposure to smoking began. Ethnicity was a significant predictor of heart disease, thalassemia, sickle-cell anemia, and iron-deficiency anemia. In addition, predictors of thalassemia included gender (female) and participating in physical activity. Participants diagnosed with sickle-cell anemia and iron-deficiency anemia were more likely to experience different physical activities.

    It is commonly difficult to extract and amplify DNA from herbarium samples as they are old and preserved using different compounds. In addition, such samples are subjected to the accumulation of intrinsically produced plant substances over long periods (up to hundreds of years). DNA extraction from desert flora may pause added difficulties as many contain high levels of secondary metabolites. Herbarium samples from the Biology Department (UAE University) plant collection and fresh plant samples, collected from around Al-Ain (UAE), were used in this study. The three barcode loci for the coding genes matK, rbcL and rpoC1-were amplified. Our results showed that T. terresteris , H. robustum , T. pentandrus and Z. qatarense were amplified using all three primers for both fresh and herbaium samples. Both fresh and herbarium samples of C. comosum , however, were not amplified at all, using the three primers. Herbarium samples from A. javanica , C. imbricatum , T. aucherana and Z. simplex were not amplified with any of the three primers. For fresh samples 90, 90 and 80% of the samples were amplified using matK, rbcL and rpoC1, respectively. In short, fresh samples were significantly better amplified than those from herbarium sources, using the three primers. Both fresh and herbarium samples from one species ( C. comosum ), however, were not successfully amplified. It is also concluded that the rbcL regions showed real potentials to distinguish the UAE species under investigation into the appropriate family and genus.

    Full Text Available The paper opposes to a common attitude towards forms – as being something non-important, superficial, “formal” – Plato and Aristotle’s philosophy, according to which things exist because of forms. From the inquiry of their logic that mixes the epistemological and the ontological standpoint, the analysis goes on to the problem of the understanding of forms as events: as mirrors of the manner we see the world/as mirrors of the way of thinking. I contrast the event to the situation – in Alain Badiou’s manner – and I show that there is a logic of continuity between Aristotle’s insistence on the concrete face of form (σύνoλoν and Badiou’s concept of fidelity: because this concept always relates to the concrete which deserves to be faithful towards. The value of things we support gives their “forms”. If so, fidelity towards forms is something more complete and suggestive than to follow essences: forms are as important as essences; this is obvious when the forms change but the essence do not; in fact, it is not a real change. The real change is when the form changes bringing also the change of the essence.

    La plupart des ouvrages qui paraissent sur les lasers se divisent en deux catégories : d'une part, ceux qui traitent en détail de la description quantique des interactions matière-rayonnement ; d'autre part, ceux qui insistent sur telle ou telle caractéristique des sources laser et sur les problèmes nouveaux qu'elles permettent d'aborder, comme l'optique non-linéaire, la fusion inertielle ou le transfert d'information. Gilbert Grynberg, Alain Aspect et Claude Fabre ont fait le pari qu'il était possible de combiner ces deux points de vue dans un même ouvrage et de présenter à leurs lecteurs, à la fois les concepts quantiques de base qui permettent de comprendre l'absorption et l'émission de lumière par les atomes, et les principes de fonctionnement des lasers, leurs caractéristiques essentielles et quelques exemples importants d'applications concrètes.

    Full Text Available In response to Chris Marker and Alain Resnais’s collaborative meditation on art and colonialism in Statues Also Die (1953, Duncan Campbell’s video installation It for Others (2013 takes a complex approach to presenting a Marxist criticism of the commoditization of art and culture. This article considers the intermedial and intertextual properties of It for Others as an example of convergence culture that transcends postmodern quotation and pastiche. While the film is apparently a bricolage of visual artefacts, it is in fact an intricately woven audiovisual essay concerned with the appropriation of not only colonized objects as its narration makes clear, but also of still images, moving images, written texts, sound samples, and the labour that produced them. The article examines how the film troubles notions of documentary realism and truth through its acts of appropriation that reflexively criticize the commercial appropriation and commoditization of artworks and histories. It also reflects on the film’s Marxist approach to related issues around authorship, ownership and access to artworks, particularly in the light of the film’s acknowledgement in prize culture.

    The program described by the eight-volume report, a resource materials document type, identified the issues and risks associated with the potential design, development, and operation of an Automated Highway System (AHS), a highway system that utilizes limited access roadways and provides `hands off` driving. The AHS effort was conducted by a team formed and directed by the Calspan Advanced Technology Center. Primary Team members included Calspan, Parsons Brinckerhoff, Dunn Engineering Associates, and Princeton University. Supporting members of the team were BMW, New York Thruway Authority, New York State Department of Transportation, Massachusetts Department of Transportation, the New Jersey Department of Transportation, Boston Research, Vitro Corporation, and Michael P. Walsh of Walsh Associates. The 17 task reports (A through P plus Representative Systems Configurations) are organized into 8 volumes. This volume describes Commercial and Transit AHS Analysis (Task F.) This task was performed as two independent and parallel efforts. Parsons Brinckerhoff performed the work reported in the main body of the report and Appendix A. That work was supervised by Marvin Gersten and supported by Jeanine Jankowski, both of Parsons Brinckerhoff. A separate and parallel analysis, performed by Prinecton University, appears as Appendix B (with its own Executive Summary). The work was developed by Alain Kornhauser.

    Full Text Available The history of quantum mechanics is divided into two periods which are labeled as the first and the second quantum revolutions. During the first of these periods mathematical formalism of quantum theory was formulated and interpreted, during the second – new quantum technologies were developed. It turns out that conceptual revolution of the first period enabled technological revolution of the second. In this article it is argued, that Irish physicist, John S. Bell, played an important role in the process of triggering the second quantum revolution. His work on quantum entanglement of the EPR particles made possible elaborating some new methods and theoretical approaches clarifying the quantum description of single objects. These methods and approaches became the core of new scientific domains which are hybrids of quantum mechanics and some classical sciences. The quantum cryptography and the quantum computation are examples of such domains and in the paper special attention is paid to them. It is showed that theoretical analyses of John S. Bell provide a conceptual background for these disciplines and this is why it’s not improper to call this physicist – as Alain Aspect did – a prophet of the second quantum revolution.

It was her discourse based on general rules of rationality with which she unconsciously attempted to avoid the confrontation with the truth of an event (incestuous marriage which had already occurred. In the text, presuppositions and consequences of such an analogy between ancient and contemporary philosophical material are discussed in order to show-on the basis of arguing that the unconscious is located within (and not beyond rational processes that subjects undertake in order to respond to rational needs (viz. impulses of the Ego-that contemporary discussion about ′antiphilosophy′ by left-wing philosophers bears unacknowledged tendencies to unconsciously reduce Marx’ algorithm of ′realization of philosophy′ to the Hegelian negation of the negation and to integrate it into the discourse of academic philosophy.

    Full Text Available Nowadays, the danger of war and insecurity in the Mediterranean countries is dependant upon existing fracture lines within states moreso than it does upon the risk of armed inter-state confrontation. Internal instability is related to, according to Alain Joxe, the end of Russian-American strategic bipolarity in the Mediterranean, inasmuch as the subsequent changes brought about in the international system have impacted on the Mediterranean political societies and on intra-state violence. Though the Mediterranean represents a place where antinomies exist between the economies of the North and South, the policies of Europe and the United States, and matters belonging to civilisation - Islam, Judaism, the Christian world and the modernist secular tradition, the intrusion of the great systems of world power via the globalising economy causes ruptures in localsocieties and leads to the weakening of the states. In order to create a system of security in the Mediterranean, it is therefore necessary to apply a critical method that discards cultural and historical stereotypes, looks again at the supposed successes obtained by the different peace agreements, and identifies the negative aspects of economic globalisation. Such a method must be accompanied by the objective of forcing negotiations to take place among the true actors in Mediterranean society –the states– and also among the other ethnic, linguistic or religious entities, large organisations like the EU, NATO and the Arab League, and commercial groups and business leaders who must integrate themselves in a regimented international economy.

    To compare between visual and computerized cardiotocography (cCTG) in low-risk pregnant women in predicting pregnancy outcome. One hundred and fifty-three consecutive computerized fetal heart tracings were recorded from non-laboring pregnant women at >/- 30 weeks gestation. All traces were reviewed by 2 experienced obstetricians. The study was carried out at Al-Ain Medical District, United Arab Emirates, between August 2004 and December 2004. Of the 153 pregnant women, 11 (7.2%) were delivered by cesarean section. The interobserver agreement was 0.60. The observers cCTG agreement were 0.48 and 0.45. The difference in cesarean section rate was not statistically significant. Observers interpretation and cCTG did not correlate well with Apgar score at 5 minutes and admission to special care baby unit. Computerized CTG has little advantage over conventional CTG in the prediction of Apgar score and need for neonatal intensive care unit admission in a low-risk population. (author)

  13. Pragmatic turn in biology: From biological molecules to genetic content operators.

    2014-08-26

    Erwin Schrödinger's question "What is life?" received the answer for decades of "physics + chemistry". The concepts of Alain Turing and John von Neumann introduced a third term: "information". This led to the understanding of nucleic acid sequences as a natural code. Manfred Eigen adapted the concept of Hammings "sequence space". Similar to Hilbert space, in which every ontological entity could be defined by an unequivocal point in a mathematical axiomatic system, in the abstract "sequence space" concept each point represents a unique syntactic structure and the value of their separation represents their dissimilarity. In this concept molecular features of the genetic code evolve by means of self-organisation of matter. Biological selection determines the fittest types among varieties of replication errors of quasi-species. The quasi-species concept dominated evolution theory for many decades. In contrast to this, recent empirical data on the evolution of DNA and its forerunners, the RNA-world and viruses indicate cooperative agent-based interactions. Group behaviour of quasi-species consortia constitute de novo and arrange available genetic content for adaptational purposes within real-life contexts that determine epigenetic markings. This review focuses on some fundamental changes in biology, discarding its traditional status as a subdiscipline of physics and chemistry.

  15. The regulation of greenhouse gas emissions in the field of transport

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    2009-03-01

    Since 1990, CO 2 emissions in the transport sector have increased by nearly 20%, mainly because of increased car traffic. Reducing them by 20% between now and 2020, in accordance with the draft law tabled by the Grenelle Environment Forum - and by much more between now and 2050 in the context of reducing European emissions by 75% - presupposes recourse to economic instruments such as the climate-energy contribution envisaged by the Forum. However, the methods of evaluation and implementation remain to be defined. The order of magnitude of such instruments could correspond to the value defined for the socio-economic calculations of public projects by a Centre d'Analyse Strategique mission that was set up at the request of the Prime Minister and chaired by Alain Quinet. It will thus be close to 30 euros per CO 2 ton today, rising to 100 euros in 2030 and between 150 and 350 euros in 2050. However, this value cannot be used as such in the economy - and particularly in the form of a tax - without precautions, both for social reasons and reasons of economic competitiveness. The purpose of this Strategic Newswatch is to contribute to the debate by envisaging, within a European framework, the different forms that the regulation of transport greenhouse gas emissions could take.

Através de fontes textuais de pensadores que ocupam um momento significativo da produção filosófica internacional, com Jacques Derrida, Gilles Deleuze, Michel Serres e Jean-Luc Nancy, dos anos sessenta até os noventa, o texto coloca em perspectiva conceitos nevrálgicos e estratégicos ressituados nas suas implicações críticas.

    Full Text Available Los cambios recientes y venideros en la docencia universitaria condicionarán cada vez más el empleo de herramientas nuevas y más originales en la enseñanza. En el ámbito de las ciencias biomédicas en particular existen ya experiencias previas sobre el uso del cine comercial como una manera de favorecer el debate y la formación en áreas y asignaturas diferentes. Este artículo sugiere el empleo de la película Mi tío de América a través de la experiencia en estudiantes de Biología, como una forma de presentar las teorías de Henri Laborit sobre la neurobiología de la organización social. Se trata de una película realizada en 1980, dirigida por Alain Resnais y con guión de Jean Gruault. La trama discurre a lo largo de la vida de tres personajes que viven situaciones diversas que permiten reflejar algunas de las teorías de Laborit. En ellas, básicamente se justifica la conducta humana a través de la jerarquización de tres estructuras cerebrales y niveles, desde el más primitivo y primario "arquiencéfalo", pasando por el paleoencéfalo, responsable de la memoria, hasta llegar a un nivel más sofisticado responsable de la conciencia, el neocórtex. La película pretende divulgar estas teorías y, para ello, emplea recursos diversos como imágenes de animales de experimentación en situaciones idénticas o similares a las vividas por los protagonistas. Si prestamos atención no sólo a las ventajas que puede ofrecer esta película para su empleo en la docencia sino también a algunas de las limitaciones propias de este filme, se podría concluir que Mi tío de América es altamente recomendable para la enseñanza en psiconeurobiología.The present and future changes in the teaching at the universities will advise for the use of new and more original methods.

A fim de dar conta da situação atual considerando esses três aspectos, o texto que segue propõe um trajeto por três autores clássicos da sociologia e da filosofia: Richard Sennett e sua obra “A corrosão do caráter”; Alain Touraine e sua obra “Poderemos viver juntos?”, e Karl Jaspers e sua obra “A situação espiritual do nosso tempo.” Os três autores tratam, cada qual a seu modo, da crise civilizacional que ameaça a humanidade. Em Sennett ficará evidente como a precarização do trabalho e das relações trabalhistas desencadeia processos que podem corroer o que docentes e discentes tem de mais precioso a desenvolver na estrutura de ensino aprendizagem, qual seja, a formação do caráter. Em Touraine veremos como para além da simples crítica ao processo de flexibilização do trabalho no capitalismo, e para além dos falsos remédios à disposição, quais sejam, a adesão à cultura da massa indiferenciada, ou o isolamento na tribo ou gueto, é possível a formulação de um caminho baseado na educação de sujeitos, uma espécie de 3a via.

    RESUMEN

    El presente trabajo centra su atención en el desarrollo de un software informático para la evaluación y mejora de la capacidad de anticipación perceptiva y la toma de decisiones en tareas abiertas, caracterizada por la presencia un oponente que se enfrenta de forma inteligente al deportista. Es el tipo de tareas que define la estructura de los deportes colectivos. La identificación de las acciones esperadas, el nivel de expectativa y la presión temporal asociados a cada uno de los ataques potenciales llevan a menudo al jugador a comprometerse en lo que Alain y Proteau llaman movimientos anticipatorios. Cuando éstos se producen, los movimientos anticipatorios se ejecutan antes de que el atacante inicie su movimiento. A partir de estos estudios previos, este artículo presenta una investigación realizada con jóvenes jugadores de baloncesto y estudiantes de Educación Física para determinar la existencia de posibles diferencias en los capacidad de anticipación y toma de decisiones entre los sujetos de estos grupos, utilizando el software informático "Reflex" desarrollado por miembros del grupo de investigación "Motricidad en la Educación Física y el Deporte en las etapas iniciales".

    Full Text Available While a significant amount of research has recently been carried out that investigates the similarities and differences between Alain Badiou and Jacques Lacan#39;s theories of the subject, less attention has been paid to the direct relationship between the latter and Badiou#39;s set-theoretical ontology. This article applies some of the most important conceptual propositions advanced in the first two Parts of Being and Event to the key psychoanalytic issue of the identification of the conscious and unconscious subject as expounded by Lacan in his ninth Seminar, L#39;identification. More specifically, this article aims to show how Badiou#39;s notions of the quot;count-as-onequot; and the quot;forming-into-onequot; can profitably be put to work in order better to understand Lacan#39;s notions of the quot;unary traitquot; and the S1, the quot;master-signifierquot;. What is at stake in both cases is the relationship between structure and metastructure, presentation and representation. Furthermore, this article provides an outline for a set-theoretical formalisation of the relation between consciousness and the unconscious as developed by Lacan in L#39;identification. Lacan#39;s breaking of the solidarity between unity and totality allows him to work with parts: from the inexistence of totality as a one follows the possibility of thinking the part as quot;partial systemquot;. Lacan identifies this system with the unconscious. Applying a number of set-theoretical axioms, this article argues that the existence of the unconscious as partial system ultimately relies on the in-existence of the void, or, more specifically, the existence of the void as part that in-exists as element.

    Full Text Available Trata-se de um trabalho que objetiva especular sobre a natureza e a função da palavra poética do ponto de vista da relação que estabelece entre o estético, o ético e o político. Inquieta-nos saber como a linguagem poética, inscrita no seio da língua, pode se configurar como um gesto de resistência e subversão ao investir na não-representação e na apresentação de um (quase ser nascente no aqui e agora de sua presença no "ter-lugar" da língua. Filósofos contemporâneos, como Alain Badiou e Giorgio Agamben, apontam possíveis respostas para essa questão por meio da operação de negatividade que se faz na língua, de modo a torná-la não informativa. Barthes também acena nessa direção ao se deter sobre o vazio da aparição do "é isto" na forma poética do haicai, que bloqueia qualquer interpretação ulterior. Espera-se que esses modos de pensar o poético possam oferecer à crítica literária novos parâmetros investigativos.

The presence of dysfunctional sleep-related beliefs and attitudes at bedtime in asymptomatic, depressive, and anxious seniors was thus compared. The second objective was to verify the relationships between various dysfunctional cognitions and mental disorders. Method: The sample in this study consisted of 2,759 participants aged 65 years and over, with a mean age of 73.8 years. They were recruited through a method of random generation of telephone numbers according to a sampling strategy based on geographic location. After the goal of the study was explained to them, the participants agreed to have health professionals visit their home and to answer questions in a 1.5-hour-long structured interview (after signing a consent form. Results: Depressive and anxious seniors adopt dysfunctional sleep-related cognitions in higher proportions than asymptomatic older persons. Once we had controlled for the other factors, we were able to specifically link two sleep-related beliefs and all the sleep-related attitudes studied to the probability of being anxious or depressive. Conclusion: The clarifications obtained will make it possible to improve detection, assessment, and intervention processes regarding anxiety or mood disorders, by pinpointing the most direct link between each of the dysfunctional cognitions and the two types of mental disorders, and not just the link to sleep problems. Keywords: beliefs, worries, attitudes, thoughts, insomnia, mental health

Previous vaccination attempts have employed the recombinant major outer membrane protein (MOMP of C. trachomatis nonetheless, with limited success, perhaps, due to stability, degradation, and delivery issues. In this study we cloned C. trachomatis recombinant MOMP DNA (DMOMP and encapsulated it in chitosan nanoparticles (DMCNP using the complex coacervation technique. Physiochemical characterizations of DMCNP included transmission and scanning electron microcopy, Fourier transform infrared and ultraviolet-visible spectroscopy, and zeta potential. Encapsulated DMOMP was 167–250 nm, with a uniform spherical shape and homogenous morphology, and an encapsulation efficiency > 90%. A slow release pattern of encapsulated DMOMP, especially in acidic solution, was observed over 7 days. The zeta potential of DMCNP was ~8.80 mV, which indicated that it was highly stable. Toxicity studies of DMCNP (25–400 µg/mL to Cos-7 cells using the MTT assay revealed minimal toxicity over 24–72 hours with >90% viable cells. Ultra-violet visible (UV-vis spectra indicated encapsulated DMOMP protection by chitosan, whereas agarose gel electrophoresis verified its protection from enzymatic degradation. Expression of MOMP protein in DMCNP-transfected Cos-7 cells was demonstrated via Western blotting and immunofluorescence microscopy. Significantly, intramuscular injection of BALB/c mice with DMCNP confirmed the delivery of encapsulated DMOMP, and expression of the MOMP gene transcript in thigh muscles and spleens. Our data show that encapsulation of DMOMP in biodegradable chitosan nanoparticles imparts stability and protection from enzymatic digestion, and enhances delivery and

Nine Canadian specialists (eight dermatologists, one plastic surgeon collaborated to develop an overview on volume restoration and contouring based on published literature and their collective clinical experience. The specialists concurred that optimal results in volume restoration and contouring depend on correcting deficiencies at various layers of the facial envelope. This includes creating a foundation for deep structural support in the supraperiosteal or submuscular plane; volume repletion of subcutaneous fat compartments; and the reestablishment of dermal and subdermal support to minimize cutaneous rhytids, grooves and furrows. It was also agreed that volume restoration and contouring using a global facial approach is essential to create a natural, youthful appearance in facial aesthetics. A comprehensive non-surgical approach should therefore incorporate combining fillers such as high-viscosity, low-molecular-weight hyaluronic acid (LMWHA for structural support and hyaluronic acid (HA for lines, grooves and furrows with neuromodulators, lasers and energy devices.Keywords: hyaluronic acid filler, volumizing, facial

  11. Haptic and Olfactory Experiences of the Perth Foreshore: Case Studies in Sensory History

    Full Text Available The liminal zone where a city meets ‘the water’s edge’ is a place of heightened sensory experiences. In Australia, these settings have been continually reshaped and experienced, individually and collectively, both before and after European settlement, and so they provide a physical domain for reinterpreting Australian history. In Perth, Western Australia, at the turn of the twentieth century, two recreational buildings on the foreshore, the Perth City Baths (1898–1914 and the Water Chute (1905–unknown, promoted new aquatic leisure practices that provided heightened sensory experiences of the Swan River and the city foreshore. These buildings are examined from the perspective of ‘sensory history’, an alternative form of cultural and environmental analysis that has been garnering interest from a range of disciplines over the past several decades (see, for example, the work of Constance Classen, Alain Corbin, David Howes and Mark M Smith. Sensory history seeks to reveal through historical inquiry the informative and exploratory nature of the senses in specific contexts. The potential value of sensory history to studies of built and natural environments lies in drawing attention away from the overweening and frequently generalising dominance of ‘the visual’ as a critical category in humanities research. The case studies explore how evolving swimming practices at the City Baths and ‘shooting the chutes’ at the Water Chute provided novel, exciting and sometimes unpleasant haptic and olfactory experiences and consider how changing forms of recreation allowed for broadly sensuous rather than primarily visual experiences of the foreshore and Swan River. These case studies are part of a larger body of research that seeks to ‘make sense’ of the Perth foreshore and, more broadly, Australian urban waterfronts as sites of varied and evolving sensory experience.

The aim was also to determine whether groups of anxious, depressive, and asymptomatic individuals differ in relation to sleep onset latency; awakenings at night or early in the morning; subjective quality of sleep; taking of sleep medication; and daytime sleepiness. Methods: Structured interviews based on the DSM-IV-TR were administered to a sample of 2,759 seniors aged 65 years and older at the participants’ home by health professionals. Results: Awakening was found to be the most common disturbance. Increased sleep onset latency was the second most frequent sleep difficulty. Taking more than 30 minutes to fall asleep was associated with the likelihood of meeting the diagnostic criteria for an anxiety disorder, and even reduced the risk of meeting the diagnostic criteria for a mood disorder rather than an anxiety disorder. Awakenings were associated with the probability of suffering from an anxiety disorder or a mood disorder. Quality of sleep, as perceived by the elderly, was not found to be associated with the probability of suffering from a mental disorder. Conclusion: These findings should help to facilitate the practitioner’s diagnosis and add further nuances to be considered when encountering symptoms of an anxious or depressive appearance. All of these data also add fuel to the ongoing debate about whether anxiety and depression are one or two distinct categories of disorders.

Surgical resection with or without lymph node sampling is the standard of care for primary cutaneous melanoma. Adjuvant therapy decisions may be informed by careful consideration of prognostic factors. High-dose adjuvant interferon alpha-2b increases disease-free survival and may modestly improve overall survival. Less toxic alternatives for adjuvant therapy are currently under study. External beam radiation therapy is an option for nodal beds where the risk of local recurrence is very high. In-transit melanoma metastases may be treated locally with surgery, immunotherapy, radiation, or heated limb perfusion. For metastatic melanoma, the options include chemotherapy or immunotherapy; targeted anti-BRAF and anti-KIT therapy is under active investigation. Standard chemotherapy yields objective tumor responses in approximately 10%–20% of patients, and sustained remissions are uncommon. Immunotherapy with high-dose interleukin-2 yields objective tumor responses in a minority of patients; however, some of these responses may be durable. Identification of activating mutations of BRAF, NRAS, c-KIT, and GNAQ in distinct clinical subtypes of melanoma suggest that these are molecularly distinct. Emerging data from clinical trials suggest that substantial improvements in the standard of care for melanoma may be possible.Keywords: melanoma, resection, immune modulation, small molecule kinase inhibitors, chemotherapy, clinical trials

  15. Facing the challenges of the nuclear renaissance

    2010-01-01

    The Nuclear Renaissance is stumbling at the very same time it should speed up in order to help control the climate change and meet a fast growing energy need in a large part of the world. Rising costs of projects, uncertainties about their completion, rocketing safety requirements, and financial constraints are key factors which slow down the Nuclear Renaissance. Furthermore, the legal infrastructure required from any country to enter a commercial nuclear programme (safety authorities, fuel cycle, and waste disposal) is a major hurdle s which impedes consideration for small to mid size reactors, well suited for many countries. The paper prepared and presented by Alain Bugat (Chairman of NucAdvisor and former Head of the French Atomic Energy Commission), Dominique Vignon (CEO of NucAdvisor and former President and CEO of AREVA NP) and Michel Lecomte (Co-founder NucAdvisor) reviews the present status of the Nuclear Renaissance. Based on an analysis of initial versus actual plans for all projects announced during the last three years, it scrutinizes some key factors behind the postponements of start-up dates of construction, and cost increases. On each of the issues which jeopardize new projects, the paper will propose an adequate course of actions, to be taken by vendors, operators, governments and safety authorities as well as investors, financial institutions and banks. - Recommendations are developed with respect to: - A needed coordination between the Kyoto and post Kyoto mechanisms, and the nuclear industry; a financial assessment of the potential of such coordination will be presented; - A transformation of the national licensing processes, under a common International framework; it will take into consideration the experience of the Airspace industry, and a systematic mutual acceptance of licensing certificates; - An easier access for nuclear projects to the financial markets, based on the support of major Financial institutions (World Bank; BEI; etc

    A highly sensitive method for simultaneous determinations of eleven β-blockers and β-agonists in distilled and waste-waters using liquid chromatography-electrospray ionization-tandem mass spectrometry (LC-ESI-MS-MS) was developed, optimized and validated. The method was used for trace determinations of acebutolol, atenolol, metoprolol, propranolol, timolol, nadolol, labetalol, oxprenolol, pindolol, alprenolol and terbutaline. Oasis MCX and Clean Screen cartridges were used for solid phase extractions and an alkaline mixture of dichloromethane-propanol was used as mobile phase. Matrix effect was reduced by using methanol as a pre-eluant for removing co-extractives on the SPE cartridges and by applying the internal standard method for quantification. Using Oasis MCX-SPE cartridges, developed method gave average recoveries of 77.20-97.30% for drugs spiked at 150.00-500.00pg/ml. Intra-day precisions gave RSD of 3.367-12.489% while as inter-day precisions gave RSD of 6.425-19.768%. Detection limits of 0.11-6.74pg/ml and quantification limits of 0.14-22.88pg/ml were obtained. Signal's suppression in the range of 4.50-24.50% was recorded due to the matrix effect. Drugs spiked in wastewater at 500.00pg/ml concentrations level and stored at 4°C for 6 days, showed insignificant degradation. Developed method was successfully applied to the analysis of pharmaceutical residues in effluents wastewaters. Five β-blockers and one β-agonists were detected in Al-Ain and Abu Dhabi wastewaters at average concentrations of 3.44-19.05pg/ml. Atenolol was detected at higher average concentration ranged in 125.60-234.28pg/ml. Results obtained suggest that adopted wastewater treatment processes are not enough to degrade these compounds.

    2000-02-02

    This is a report of the Workshop 'Strategic orientations of the transport policy' presided by Alain Bonnafous. In France the State invests annually ten billion Francs in transport infrastructures of national or regional interest. It contributes by several billiard Francs to ensure the financial balance of the public operators of the sector. The results are disappointing from many points of view. It plunged SNCF into debts, delayed building top-priority infrastructure, impaired competition between railway and road transports, etc. These drawbacks are explainable largely by the transport policy. This document urges for a joint action of all public means. There two sections. The first, titled 'Elements of reflection and recommendations' contains a synthesis and two reports on tariffing and financing the transport infrastructures. The recommendation is argued to submit all the transport modes to the same fare-establishing principles. A more rational methodology would allow establishing a fair competition, discouraging the unprofitable investment and solving the traffic jamming problems. A second recommendation aims at braking the dividers between the financial circuits, i.e., to set an end to an irrational system by which projects though very gainful for community fail to find financing while others less profitable benefit of afforded resources. The transport effectiveness drives the global competitiveness and affects the employment level. Solely a policy able to manage coherently the financing, fare-establishment, fiscal matters, and regulation could offer it to this country at a reasonable price. The second section contains the reports concerning the competitiveness of public operators. It analyses their economic situation and urges at breaking the vicious circle of their plunging in over-debts. Indeed, it suggests another long term vision upon the financial elements of these establishments and risks they are exposed to.

    This work discuses in details the hydrochemical and environmental isotopes ( 2 H, 3 H, 13 C, 14 C, 18 O and 34 S) characteristics of groundwaters resources in the Palaeogene aquifer in the Upper Syrian Jezireh Region in order to evaluate these resources in terms of recharge zones and water ages in such an aquifer system that undergone during the last decades to intensive exploitation as a consequence of sever pumping in both Syria and Turkey. The results show that the main recharge zones for the Palaeogene aquifer exists in Turkey within lands of more than 700 m.a.s.l, and effectively coincide well with the exposure of the Karstified Nummulitic limestone in Mardin uplift. The chemical and isotopic behaviors of groundwaters, together with the radiometric 14 C ages reflect the existence of three different groundwater groups: (1) the fresh and cold water, percolating in short and shallow flow paths, such as the case of the major cold springs in Ras Al-Ain and Ain El-Arous areas and most wells located in the vicinity of the Syrian-Turkish borders, for which the main replenishment processes were occurred after the palaeoclimatic humid conditions of the Holocene period, placed between 4.5-6 ka BP; (2) the brackish and thermal waters containing certain amounts of H 2 S gas, that percolate in longer and deeper flow paths, for which the main replenishment processes were occurred during the palaeoclimatic humid conditions of the Pleistocene time, placed at 9-18 ka BP; (3) the brackish and admixed thermal groundwaters with intermediate 14 C ages, which seem to be formed as a result of mixing between the previous two groups.

Swallowing disorders and respiratory muscular weakness quickly required invasive ventilation. On day 3, the patient was in a “brain-death”-like state with deep coma and absent brainstem reflexes. Electroencephalogram ruled out brain death diagnosis as a paradoxical sleep trace was recorded. Cerebrospinal fluid analysis, electrophysiologic studies, and a recent history of diarrhea led to the diagnosis of Campylobacter jejuni-related fulminant Guillain-Barré syndrome (GBS mimicking brain death. The outcome was favorable after long Intensive Care Unit and inpatient rehabilitation stays, despite persistent disability at 9 years follow-up. This case and the associated literature review of 34 previously reported fulminant GBS patients emphasize the importance of electrophysiological investigations during clinical brain-death states with no definite cause. Fulminant GBS has a worse outcome than “standard” GBS with higher rates of severe disability (about 50%. Long-term physiotherapy and specific rehabilitation programs appear essential to improve recovery.

    Abstract Motivation: Mutations (or Single Nucleotide Variants) in folded RiboNucleic Acid structures that cause local or global conformational change are riboSNitches. Predicting riboSNitches is challenging, as it requires making two, albeit related, structure predictions. The data most often used to experimentally validate riboSNitch predictions is Selective 2′ Hydroxyl Acylation by Primer Extension, or SHAPE. Experimentally establishing a riboSNitch requires the quantitative comparison of two SHAPE traces: wild-type (WT) and mutant. Historically, SHAPE data was collected on electropherograms and change in structure was evaluated by ‘gel gazing.’ SHAPE data is now routinely collected with next generation sequencing and/or capillary sequencers. We aim to establish a classifier capable of simulating human ‘gazing’ by identifying features of the SHAPE profile that human experts agree ‘looks’ like a riboSNitch. Results: We find strong quantitative agreement between experts when RNA scientists ‘gaze’ at SHAPE data and identify riboSNitches. We identify dynamic time warping and seven other features predictive of the human consensus. The classSNitch classifier reported here accurately reproduces human consensus for 167 mutant/WT comparisons with an Area Under the Curve (AUC) above 0.8. When we analyze 2019 mutant traces for 17 different RNAs, we find that features of the WT SHAPE reactivity allow us to improve thermodynamic structure predictions of riboSNitches. This is significant, as accurate RNA structural analysis and prediction is likely to become an important aspect of precision medicine.

Recently, dietary changes associated with drug therapy have garnered attention as novel drugs to mitigate or ameliorate hypercholesterolemia. The present study was undertaken to observe different dietary polyphenols that can bind to the active site of HMGR and inhibit it. Results from the 12 dietary polyphenols tested reveal that polyphenols can bind to HMGR and block the binding of nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide phosphate (NADP+. We observed that the rigidity of phenolic rings prevents the polyphenols from docking to the enzyme activity site. The presence of an ester linkage between the phenolic rings in (–-epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG and the alkyl chain in curcumin allows them to orient in the active site of the HMGR and bind to the catalytic residues. EGCG and curcumin showed binding to the active site residues with a low GRID score, which may be a potential inhibitor of HMGR. Kaempferol showed binding to HMG-CoA, but with low binding affinity. These observations provide a rationale for the consistent hypolipidemic effect of EGCG and curcumin, which has been previously reported in several epidemiological and animal studies. Therefore, this study substantiates the mechanism of polyphenols on the activity of HMGR by molecular docking and provides the impetus for drug design involving further structure–function relationship studies.

    Precipitation chemistry and depth measurements obtained by the Canadian Air and Precipitation Monitoring Network (CAPMoN) and the US National Atmospheric Deposition Program/National Trends Network (NADP/NTN) were compared for the 10-year period 1995–2004. Colocated sets of CAPMoN and NADP instrumentation, consisting of precipitation collectors and rain gages, were operated simultaneously per standard protocols for each network at Sutton, Ontario and Frelighsburg, Ontario, Canada and at State College, PA, USA. CAPMoN samples were collected daily, and NADP samples were collected weekly, and samples were analyzed exclusively by each network’s laboratory for pH, H + , Ca2+  , Mg2+  , Na + , K + , NH+4 , Cl − , NO−3 , and SO2−4 . Weekly and annual precipitation-weighted mean concentrations for each network were compared. This study is a follow-up to an earlier internetwork comparison for the period 1986–1993, published by Alain Sirois, Robert Vet, and Dennis Lamb in 2000. Median weekly internetwork differences for 1995–2004 data were the same to slightly lower than for data for the previous study period (1986–1993) for all analytes except NO−3 , SO2−4 , and sample depth. A 1994 NADP sampling protocol change and a 1998 change in the types of filters used to process NADP samples reversed the previously identified negative bias in NADP data for hydrogen-ion and sodium concentrations. Statistically significant biases (α = 0.10) for sodium and hydrogen-ion concentrations observed in the 1986–1993 data were not significant for 1995–2004. Weekly CAPMoN measurements generally are higher than weekly NADP measurements due to differences in sample filtration and field instrumentation, not sample evaporation, contamination, or analytical laboratory differences.

    To study the prevalence of premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD) symptom patterns among women in the United Arab Emirates and to measure the debilitating nature of PMDD symptoms and sociodemographic correlates. This cross-sectional sample study used the Mini-International Neuropsychiatric Interview-Plus (MINI-Plus) and Premenstrual Symptoms Screening Tool (PSST) to screen for presence and severity of PMDD symptoms in Arab women attending ambulatory health services in Alain city, Emirate of Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates, for routine health care between May 2005 and September 2005. The study participants include 508 women (76% Emiratis, 15% Omanis, and 8% other Arabs) of childbearing age. In total, 94 women (18.6%) met MINI-Plus criteria for PMDD; of these, 21 (4.1%) met PSST criteria for severe symptoms, 29 (5.7%) for moderate symptoms, and 44 (8.7%) for mild or less symptoms. One woman (0.2%) with severe symptoms and 12 women (2.4%) with moderate symptoms had negative MINI-Plus scores. Presence of PMDD symptoms was significantly associated with higher education (P = .000), single marital status (P = .001), major life stressors (P = .001), and personal/family use of psychotropic medications (P = .000/P = .006), personal/family psychological problems (P = .000/P = .001), irregular/painful menses (P = .043/P = .001), and functional impairment on the Sheehan Disability Scale (P = .000). Multilogistic regression analysis showed higher education, major life stressor, personal use of psychotropic medications, personal/family psychological problem, and painful menses were independent predictors of PMDD symptoms. PMDD symptoms were common among the Arab women in our study. The cyclically triggered mood disturbances were clustered in women with personal/familial psychological problems, perhaps linking biologic constitution to genetic predisposition for the development of PMDD symptomatology. © Copyright 2017 Physicians Postgraduate Press, Inc.

Através de ações coletivas, agem como resistência à exclusão e provocam novas dinâmicas sociais no campo. Partindo da concepção teórica de novos movimentos sociais apresentada por Alain Touraine, este artigo se propôs a mapear e a discutir o estado da arte referente a teses e dissertações sobre movimentos sociais rurais. Adotamos os períodos compreendidos entre 2002 a 2014 para o mapeamento das teses e dissertações e 1980 a 2015 para as análises das temáticas relativas aos movimentos sociais rurais. Utilizou-se, para a realização das análises, o software Alceste (Análise Lexical por Contexto de um Conjunto de Segmentos de Texto. Os resultados mostraram que o período posterior a 2003 marcou a passagem do viés combativo para a rotinização dos movimentos sociais, tendo as contestações sociais se deslocado do mundo do trabalho para a vida cotidiana, com uma pluralidade de demandas materiais e simbólicas que giraram em torno do reconhecimento de identidades e do modo de vida camponês, evidenciando-se a politização dos costumes e práticas relativos ao modo de vida tradicional.

On the one hand, the most important living French philosopher, Alain Badiou, calls for a “return to Plato,” despite the movement of anti-Platonism that dominated French and German thought in the 20th century. On the other hand, the present moment sees a resurgence of naturalism in philosophy in general (including and especially Anglophone analytic philosophy, despite the criticisms of naturalism that have appeared throughout the 20th century. Phenomenology seems to be at the center of both of these movements. On the one hand, it is the idea of a mathematized ontology that requires the return to Plato, a mathematized ontology constructed without a reflection on its transcendental grounds. On the other, the resurgence of naturalism is so strong that a book could be imagined and published with the bastard name of Naturalizing Phenomenology, as if the transcendental moment of phenomenology did not transform the very meaning of nature. These signs seem to indicate that we have entered into a phase of regression or even decline in philosophical thinking. If this interpretation of the signs is correct, if we have indeed entered into a phase of regression -- a twofold regression toward Platonism and toward naturalism -- we must ask the following question: is it possible for us to define something like a project or even a research agenda that would allow us to define a way of thinking that might lead us out of the present situation, a situation, it must be said, that seems dire for philosophy in general? If we can determine such a research agenda, perhaps we can also begin to understand what the tradition of “continental philosophy” has stood for.

Avec sa propre compagnie, il a ensuite porté à la scène un projet de sept spectacles s’inspirant des mystères médiévaux, avec des textes empruntés à la Torah, aux Évangiles et au Coran, où le sublime se mêle au grotesque. Dans cet entretien, le réalisateur revient sur ses multiples visions du Moyen Âge dans sa recréation du mythe arthurien au théâtre, mais aussi à l’écran, dans le film qu’il a tiré de la pièce: Les Chevaliers de la Table Ronde (1990 avec Maria Casarès, Alain Cuny et Michel Vitold.

  8. Neurophysiological Evidence That Musical Training Influences the Recruitment of Right Hemispheric Homologues for Speech Perception

    Full Text Available Musicians have a more accurate temporal and tonal representation of auditory stimuli than their non-musician counterparts (Kraus & Chandrasekaran, 2010; Parbery-Clark, Skoe, & Kraus, 2009; Zendel & Alain, 2008; Musacchia, Sams, Skoe, & Kraus, 2007. Musicians who are adept at the production and perception of music are also more sensitive to key acoustic features of speech such as voice onset timing and pitch. Together, these data suggest that musical training may enhance the processing of acoustic information for speech sounds. In the current study, we sought to provide neural evidence that musicians process speech and music in a similar way. We hypothesized that for musicians, right hemisphere areas traditionally associated with music are also engaged for the processing of speech sounds. In contrast we predicted that in non-musicians processing of speech sounds would be localized to traditional left hemisphere language areas. Speech stimuli differing in voice onset time was presented using a dichotic listening paradigm. Subjects either indicated aural location for a specified speech sound or identified a specific speech sound from a directed aural location. Musical training effects and organization of acoustic features were reflected by activity in source generators of the P50. This included greater activation of right middle temporal gyrus (MTG and superior temporal gyrus (STG in musicians. The findings demonstrate recruitment of right hemisphere in musicians for discriminating speech sounds and a putative broadening of their language network. Musicians appear to have an increased sensitivity to acoustic features and enhanced selective attention to temporal features of speech that is facilitated by musical training and supported, in part, by right hemisphere homologues of established speech processing regions of the brain.

  9. Modeling of global horizontal irradiance in the United Arab Emirates with artificial neural networks

    This paper employs ANN (Artificial Neural Network) models to estimate GHI (global horizontal irradiance) for three major cities in the UAE (United Arab Emirates), namely Abu Dhabi, Dubai and Al-Ain. City data are then used to develop a comprehensive global GHI model for other nearby locations in the UAE. The ANN models use MLP (Multi-Layer Perceptron) and RBF (Radial Basis Function) techniques with comprehensive training algorithms, architectures, and different combinations of inputs. The UAE models are tested and validated against individual city models and data available from the UAE Solar Atlas with good agreement as attested by the computed statistical error parameters. The optimal ANN model is MLP-based and requires four mean daily weather parameters; namely, maximum temperature, wind speed, sunshine hours, and relative humidity. The computed statistical error parameters for the optimal MLP-ANN model in relation to the measured three-cities mean data (referred to as UAE data) are MBE (mean bias error) = −0.0003 kWh/m 2 , RMSE = 0.179 kWh/m 2 , R 2  = 99%, NSE (Nash-Sutcliffe model Efficiency coefficient) = 99%, and t-statistic = 0.005 at 5% significance level. Results prove the suitability of the ANN models for estimating the monthly mean daily GHI in different locations of the UAE. - Highlights: • ANN prediction models for the GHI (global horizontal irradiance) in the UAE. • Models used to estimate the potential of global solar radiation for UAE cities. • Data from the UAE Solar Atlas are used to validate developed ANN models. • ANN models are more efficient than regression models in predicting GHI

  10. Multisensory object perception in infancy: 4-month-olds perceive a mistuned harmonic as a separate auditory and visual object.

    Infants learn to use auditory and visual information to organize the sensory world into identifiable objects with particular locations. Here we use a behavioural method to examine infants' use of harmonicity cues to auditory object perception in a multisensory context. Sounds emitted by different objects sum in the air and the auditory system must figure out which parts of the complex waveform belong to different sources (auditory objects). One important cue to this source separation is that complex tones with pitch typically contain a fundamental frequency and harmonics at integer multiples of the fundamental. Consequently, adults hear a mistuned harmonic in a complex sound as a distinct auditory object (Alain, Theunissen, Chevalier, Batty, & Taylor, 2003). Previous work by our group demonstrated that 4-month-old infants are also sensitive to this cue. They behaviourally discriminate a complex tone with a mistuned harmonic from the same complex with in-tune harmonics, and show an object-related event-related potential (ERP) electrophysiological (EEG) response to the stimulus with mistuned harmonics. In the present study we use an audiovisual procedure to investigate whether infants perceive a complex tone with an 8% mistuned harmonic as emanating from two objects, rather than merely detecting the mistuned cue. We paired in-tune and mistuned complex tones with visual displays that contained either one or two bouncing balls. Four-month-old infants showed surprise at the incongruous pairings, looking longer at the display of two balls when paired with the in-tune complex and at the display of one ball when paired with the mistuned harmonic complex. We conclude that infants use harmonicity as a cue for source separation when integrating auditory and visual information in object perception. Copyright © 2017 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.

    Full Text Available Alpha-lipoic acid (aLA is a strong antioxidant commonly used for treating diabetic polyneuropathy. Previously, we demonstrated the neurorestorative effects of aLA after cerebral ischemia in rats. However, its effects on patients with stroke remain unknown. We investigated whether patients treated with aLA have better functional outcomes after acute ischemic stroke (AIS and reperfusion therapy than patients not receiving aLA.In this retrospective study of 172 prospectively registered patients with diabetes and AIS treated with tissue plasminogen activator (tPA, we investigated the relationship between aLA use and functional outcome both after 3 months and after 1 year. The functional outcomes included occurrence of hemorrhagic transformation (HT, early neurological deterioration (END, and early clinical improvement (ECI. Favorable outcomes were defined as modified Rankin Scale (mRS scores of 0-2.Of the 172 patients with AIS and diabetes, 47 (27.3% used aLA. In the entire cohort, favorable outcomes occurred at significantly higher rates both at 3 months and at 1 year in those treated with aLA. The risks for END and HT were lower and the occurrence of ECI was higher in patients treated with aLA. In multivariable analysis, aLA use was associated with favorable outcomes both at 3 months and at 1 year. Age, HT, and increased National Institutes of Health Stroke Scale scores were negative predictors of a favorable outcome.The use of aLA in patients with AIS and diabetes who are treated with tPA is associated with favorable outcomes. These results indicate that aLA could be a useful intervention for the treatment of AIS after reperfusion therapy.

    Full Text Available El propósito de este artículo es discutir el tema de la formación ético estético docente teniendo como herramienta teórica principal los conceptos tratados por Michel Foucault en el curso La hermenéutica del sujeto. El texto defiende el argumento de que la educación ética y estética y la educación de la mirada y de la sensibilidad podrían constituirse como parte fundamental de la formación docente. Asumo la posición de que la formación ética y estética podría ser relacionada a un trabajo de inmersión en las imágenes audiovisuales, en los ejercicios con sonidos, movimientos, diálogos y colores de las imágenes del cine y de la televisión, especialmente cuando se trata de narrativas que huyen a los esquemas convencionales de apelación al simple espectáculo. Con base en Michel Foucault y en los filósofos clásicos griegos y romanos por él estudiados, bien como en las obras de Alain Badiou sobre cine, el texto discurre a respecto de la posibilidad del establecimiento de relaciones entre filosofía y formación de docente, trayendo para el debate tres producciones (dos del cine norteamericano y una de la televisión brasileña. La docencia, en el ámbito de esta discusión, es tratada como lugar privilegiado de experimentación, de transformación de sí y de indagación permanente sobre de que modo nos tornamos lo que somos, particularmente en el campo de la educación.

    Full Text Available Si l’on peut louer le souci de réflexivité qui anime la sociologie, il convient toutefois de dépasser ce stade du questionnement pour arriver à développer une sociologie moins inquiète d’elle-même. Les raisons de ce malaise sont diverses. Outre l’absence d’accord « sur un socle élémentaire de compétences exigibles » (François Dubet et Alain Caillé, la spécificité de son champ et de ses apports, comparée, par exemple, à l’histoire ou à la géographie, serait aussi une exigence importante, dont la rencontre la rendrait moins fragile. La question des méthodes qu’elle emploie mériterait également l’attention car celles-ci peuvent pécher par leurs faiblesses mais aussi parfois par leurs excès. L’objet même que se donne la sociologie appelle lui aussi une réflexion : la sociologie n’est pas du travail social frotté de science. Pourquoi dès lors privilégier l’étude des « problèmes sociaux » au sens courant du terme et ne pas s’intéresser aussi aux populations sans problème ou tout au moins se considérant comme telles ? Comme en médecine, les personnes saines aident à comprendre les maladies. À une époque où les changements se multiplient dans tous les domaines, la sociologie doit s’atteler à peaufiner sa conceptualisation et à repenser ses paradigmes, pour assumer pleinement son rôle social.An Open Future for a Revisited SociologyIf we can praise the concern for reflexivity that drives sociology, it should however go beyond the stage of questioning in order to develop a sociology that is less worried about itself. The reasons for this discomfort are various. Besides the lack of agreement « on the basis of elementary required skills » (François Dubet et Alain Caillé, the specificity of its field and its contributions, compared for example to history or geography, should also be an important requirement whose meeting would make it less fragile.

    2013-12-01

    Full Text Available Le journalisme narratif, phénomène actuellement en (re-développement dans les pays d’Europe francophone et largement répandu aux Etats-Unis, vise à créer une forme d’« expérience » pour le lecteur, à lui faire « vivre » l’histoire racontée. Il accorde donc une importance particulière à tout ce qui relève de l’expérience subjective des sujets impliqués dans l’histoire. Pour créer cette « expérience », le journaliste a recours à des techniques d’écriture qui ont pourtant été identifiées comme des indices de fictionnalité : les verbes de sentiment et de pensée ou le discours indirect libre, par exemple. Cela soulève des questions sur le plan éthique. En empruntant certaines notions à la narratologie, principalement celles de focalisation et de voix, cet article détaille l’une de ces questions : comment, avec quelles limites et en référence à quelles valeurs éthiques, le journaliste peut-il rendre compte des pensées et sentiments de ses sujets ? L’article présente d’abord le seul positionnement qui semble, sur la base d’une réflexion purement théorique, respecter les différentes exigences et valeurs éthiques. Il analyse ensuite les stratégies d’écriture concrètes mises en place dans deux articles narratifs francophones, « Bienvenue chez Mugabe ! » de Sophie Bouillon (XXI et « Dans le Sud afghan, la drôle de guerre » d’Alain Lallemand (Le Soir, montrant ainsi comment il est possible de contourner les contraintes qui semblaient posées a priori.Narrative journalism is a journalistic model now (re-developing in Francophone European countries while already widespread in the United States. Because it attempts to make the reader “feel” the story, this kind of journalism emphasizes conveying the subjective experience of the subjects - the people who are involved in this story. In order to do so, the journalist uses writing techniques that are usually considered fiction devices

    ème dont deux ont été ouvertes au grand public et destinées plus particulièrement aux lycéens et aux étudiants des premiers cycles universitaires et des classes préparatoires aux grandes écoles. Les deux conférences grand public qui ont connu un vif succès ont été données par Michel BLAY : ”La lumière de Newton à Einstein” et Alain ASPECT : ”Des objections d'Einstein aux bits quantiques : stupéfiante intrication”. La présentation de Michel Blay, toute en couleur, a éclairé le public sur l'histoire des théories de la lumière. La conférence d'Alain Aspect a enthousiasmé aussi bien chercheurs confirmés que jeunes chercheurs et lycéens. La veille, nous avions eu l'immense plaisir d'apprendre, en avant-première qu'Alain Aspect, qui a présidé le comité scientifique des quatre précédentes éditions de COLOQ, était lauréat de la médaille d'or 2005 du CNRS. Sa conférence a su nous faire partager sa passion exceptionnelle de la physique et, à n'en pas douter, elle a suscité des vocations pour la physique chez les plus jeunes. Les autres thèmes scientifiques majeurs qui ont été abordés sont l'auto-organisation de la lumière (avec un accent particulier porté sur les solitons, thème important pour les physiciens dijonnais), les phénomènes fondamentaux, les nanostructures et l'optique quantique, et un thème aux frontières de l'optique. En outre, afin de marquer de façon spécifique l'année mondiale de la physique, quelques expériences didactiques de physique (avec l'intervention en particulier de l'Expérimentarium de l'Université de Bourgogne), ainsi qu'une démonstration sur les ondes non linéaires dans un canal hydrodynamique (Onde solitaire et Tsunami) ont été présentées aux participants et au grand public. COLOQ9 a également offert l'opportunité à la commission d'enseignement de la Société Française d'Optique d'organiser des rencontres entre enseignants d'optique autour d'affiches ”pédagogiques”. Ces
