  1. LUCIA JOYCE, A MARAFILHA

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Cláudia Thereza Guimarães de Lemos

    2014-09-01

    Full Text Available  ResumoA escrita de “marvellous” como “marfellows”por Joyce é um artifício que tornapossível à autora deste texto sobrepor a“a maravilha selvagem do pai”, o próprioJoyce, a “amara/amarga filha damãe”, Nora Barnacle, a chamermaid, acamoreira, a camareira do Finn’s Hotel.Essa sobreposição é também a formaescolhida para introduzir o trabalho ejustifica seu título, Lucia Joyce, a marafilha.Dado um tal ponto de partida, oensaio arrisca cruzar o terreno minadoque é o da relação de Lucia e sua mãe,Nora Barnacle. Zona perigosa: adentrá-la significa violar o princípio denatureza tanto teórica quanto ética queimpõe à crítica e até mesmo à historiografialiterárias erguer fronteiras entrevida e obra do autor. Por outro lado,atravessar essas fronteiras com intençõespsicanalíticas, é de fato uma temeridade.Além dos limites transgredidos, podemser endereçadas outras questões à obrade James Joyce e à leitura que Lacanfez dela. 

  2. Joyce y el inconsciente. // Joyce and the unconscious.

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Ana Cristina Ramírez Carmen

    2009-12-01

    Full Text Available This paper analyzes two references proposed by Lacan that apparently pose a paradox: in the first reference, in 1975, he stated that Joyce is an unsubscribed from the unconscious; in the second one, in 1976, he affirmed that Unconscious and Real in Joyce are tied one to another, which lead us to ask this question: from which unconscious is Joyce unsubscribed? This way, the author intends to examine the rule of unconscious in Joyce’s case, as explained by Lacan in 1975-1976. If Lacan considers the Unconscious structured like a language to be a lucubration of knowledge in relation with lalangue, this paper will show how Joyce finds a particular answer for the issue of joy that does not pass through that lucubration. // En el presente trabajo se retoman dos referencias de Lacan que plantean una aparente paradoja; en la primera, de 1975, habla de Joyce como desabonado del Inconsciente, en la segunda, en 1976, dice que en Joyce Inconsciente y real se anudan, razón suficiente para preguntarse ¿De qué Inconsciente está desabonado Joyce? Así, se pretende interrogar el estatuto del Inconsciente en el caso de Joyce, tal como lo aborda Lacan en 1975-1976. Si para Lacan el Inconsciente estructurado como un lenguaje es una elucubración de saber sobre lalengua, este recorrido permitirá ver cómo Joyce encuentra una respuesta singular al problema del goce que no pasa por dicha elucubración.

  3. Analysis of James Joyce's Araby

    Institute of Scientific and Technical Information of China (English)

    石晓静

    2013-01-01

    Araby by James Joyce is much more than a story of first love; it is a portrait of a world that defies the ideal and the dream. The writer concentrates on character rather than on plot to reveal the ironies by using the Setting and atmosphere, and furthermore reinforces the theme and characters in Araby.

  4. Theodore Roosevelt explorateur

    2005-02-01

    Full Text Available De décembre 1913 à la fin d'avril 1914, l'ancien président des Etats-Unis Theodore Roosevelt dirige une expédition scientifique à l'intérieur des Etats brésiliens du Mato Grosso et d'Amazonie. Le but principal de celle-ci consiste à reconnaître environ 700 km du cours d'un fleuve considéré comme "inconnu", lequel reçoit le nom de "Roosevelt" au terme d'un voyage périlleux. La logistique de l'expédition est assurée par le gouvernement brésilien, représenté par le colonel Cândido Mariano Rondon, célèbre par ses explorations dans l'intérieur du pays et sa politique à l'égard des Amérindiens. A son retour dans l'hémisphère nord, Theodore Roosevelt met sa notoriété au service de sa propre légende, mais aussi de la propagande des missions militaires brésiliennes et des apports de celles-ci à l'extension de la Civilisation à travers la forêt vierge.

  5. Theodore von Karman

    Science.gov (United States)

    1950-01-01

    Dr. Theodore von Karman, co-founder of the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) Pasadena, California was an aeronautical theoretician. His contributions in the fields of aerodynamics and aeronautical engineering are well documented and well known to every aerospace engineer. He was the first winner of the prestigious U.S. Medal of Science presented to him by President John F. Kennedy. As well as being co-founder of JPL, he also was principal founder of a major rocket propulsion firm (Aerojet-General Corp.), the top science advisor to the U.S. Air Force during its transition to jet propulsion aircraft and the top science advisor to NATO. He was, during much of this time, the fountainhead of aerodynamic thought as head of the Guggenheim Aeronautical Laboratory at the California Institute of Technology (GALCIT) in Pasadena, California. In the May 1956 issue of the Journal of Aeronautical Sciences, it was said of him that 'No other man has had so great an impact on the development of aeronautical science in this country. Hundreds of young men became his students and scientific collaborators and were inspired to greater effort.' Dr. William H. Pickering, then director of JPL said in 1960 'We wouldn't have an aeronautical science as we know it today, if it weren't for Dr. Thoedore von Karman.' Under his guidance, Caltech's 10 foot wind tunnel was designed, built and operated. Industry firms such as Douglas, Northrop, Hughes, Lockheed, North American, Vultee and Consolidated all tested new aeronautical designs and concepts in GALCIT's tunnel. Even Boeing's own high-speed wind tunnel was heavily influenced by suggestions from von Karman. The National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics (NACA) became so concerned about GALCIT's growing influence over West coast aviation, it erected the Ames Laboratory in Sunnyvale, California in part to deter an ever widening aeronautical gap that had formed between NACA and GALCIT. From 1936 to 1940, Caltech stood alone as the only university

  6. Joyce the Deconstructionist: Finnegans Wake in Context

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Zangouei J.

    2012-01-01

    Full Text Available Had Finnegans Wake not been written, some seminal post-1950s innovations in the field of modern literary theory and criticism would have been impossible. James Joyce, who seems to have inspiringly influenced the entire sphere of modern literary theory and criticism greatly, is a pioneer of deconstruction too. His last novel, which reflects his deconstructive tendencies, has played a seminal role in the formation of 20th century deconstruction, and comprises an inchoate mass of implicit ideas on the subject. It was perhaps not until Jacques Derrida and his deconstruction techniques that the theory implied by Finnegans Wake really came into focus. This article seeks to delineate Derrida’s theory of deconstruction as well as Joyce's deconstructive aesthetics; and taking a diachronic approach to literary theory and criticism it glances at Finnegans Wake in the light of deconstruction.

  7. Envoy verso : in : attraverso : da : Giacomo Joyce

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Enrico Frattaroli

    2015-12-01

    Full Text Available Envoy abbraccia e, al tempo stesso, scompagina la convenzione critica e pone il problema della sua stessa essenza. Saggio? Memoria d’artista? Traduzione commentata? Ricostruzione rimemorativa di un percorso in cui arte e vita s’intrecciano e mutualmente si implicano? Forse in questo suo essere esatto e refrattario, rigoroso e libero, questo e quello, né l’uno né l’altro, Envoy racchiude in sé l’essenza di Giacomo Joyce, ne riproduce e trasmette il senso profondo. Ambiguità cosciente, fedele solo alla legge dell’ibridismo, della contaminazione, dell’impurità: adultery of wisdom? perfect blend?

  10. Distaste: Joyce Carol Oates and Food

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    David Rutledge

    2014-12-01

    Full Text Available In many of her short stories and novels, Joyce Carol Oates depicts an unhealthy relationship with food. The range of these unhealthy relationships is wide, from overeating to the point of suicide, in Expensive People, to starving oneself in an attempt to deny one’s physical nature, in “Orange” and them. Overindulgence is a means for attempting to fill that space where the soul should be; undereating is often an attempt to deny one’s place in the social world. The eating disorders she portrays are rooted in both personal and social causes. While these depictions are unique to each character, over all Oates’s depictions of food develop a critique of American values. An understanding of Oates’s theme of food must include psychological, cultural and poetic approaches.

  14. Theodor Waitz on psychic unity.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Jahoda, Gustav

    2014-06-01

    The tolerant stance on 'race' by prominent Enlightenment figures was followed in the 19th century by a powerful wave of biological racism. Many of its proponents took the view that human 'races' constitute separate species, and that most non-white ones are of inferior mentality. An early opponent of this claim was James Cowles Prichard, who used mainly missionary reports in seeking to refute it. Far more extensive work was undertaken by the Herbartian psychologist Theodor Waitz, who collected ethnographic material from all over the world. It was published in six volumes - the last two after his death by his former student Georg Gerland. Waitz aim was to demonstrate the 'psychic unity' of mankind. Initially extracts from the volume on African peoples are presented in order to show how he dealt with his material. The main focus is on his first volume entitled Introduction to Anthropology, in which he elaborates his general thesis. In it Waitz maintains, against the biological racists, that mankind is a single species. Furthermore he discusses the changes from savagery to civilization, attributing them to a combination of geography and history. He was followed by Adolf Bastian who, unlike Waitz, was a great traveller with personal experience of peoples all over the globe. Both firmly believed in the psychic unity of mankind, but Bastian's approach to psychology was very different.

  15. The Characterization in A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man and James Joyce's Aesthetics

    Institute of Scientific and Technical Information of China (English)

    王红梅; 秦洪庆

    2009-01-01

    In his novel A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man, James Joyce minimized the position of minor characters in order to present the central position of the hero. This kind of characterization is closely related with Joy's aesthetics, that is Joyce's principle of "wholeness". In this paper, the close relationship between the characterization and Joyce's "wholeness" aesthetics will be discussed to prove that Joyce employed his aesthetics in his art creation.

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Mario Elkin Ramírez

    2013-06-01

    Full Text Available La confrontación de algunas lecciones del Seminario XXIII de Jacques Lacan con El retrato del artista adolescente de James Joyce, que fue una de las fuentes de Lacan, da por resultado sorprendente cómo la obra plasma a Joyce adolescente, encontrando los anudamientos allí donde la forclusión del Nombre del Padre no le permitía responder y podría dar lugar a desenganches que lo harían desencadenar su psicosis. No obstante, con su obra iba construyendo poco a poco una obra que le sirvió de Sinthoma y anudamiento a su estructura. // The contrast between some lessons in Seminar XXIII of Jacques Lacan with A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man by James Joyce, that was one of Lacan's sources, brings about how the work depicts Joyce as a young man, finding the knottings where the foreclosure of the Name of the Father did not allow him to respond and could lead to some detachments that would trigger his psychosis. Nevertheless, with his work he was gradually building a work that was useful as Sinthome and knotting of his structure.

    Pincus, Aaron L; Krueger, Robert F

    2015-01-01

    We review Theodore Millon's contributions to conceptualizing personality disorders in contemporary clinical science and practice. Millon worked tirelessly across professional domains and theoretical orientations, developing a rich integrative theory of personality and its pathology, directly and indirectly impacting the evolving iterations of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-III through DSM-5), and advocating for the personality disorders through his contributions to cofounding the International Society for the Study of Personality Disorders and the Journal of Personality Disorders. We conclude with a closer look at Millon's final major contributions to conceptualizing personality disorders as well as the strengths and limitations of his approach.

Propomos tomar a escrita de James Joyce naquilo que ela nos oferece para pensar a relação entre uma escrita possível da voz e a invocação ao Pai, detendo-nos na transmissão da voz efetuada nestas três gerações da família Joyce, no que cada um deles pôde, de maneiras singulares, criar face ao real. // The aim of this paper is to work the thematic of the voice, the music and the trait in James Joyce, his father John and his daughter Lucia in order to think about the question of the elevation of the symptom of the lack of the father through the writing of James Joyce in his literary work as well as though the relation of Lucia with the dance. Our proposal is to reflect about the writing of Joyce to think about the relation between a possible writing of the voice and the invocation to the Father, as well as the transmission of the voice made in these three generations of the Joyce family in what each one of them could, in different ways, create guided by the real.

  11. Further Evidence that Legalized Abortion Lowered Crime: A Reply to Joyce

    Donohue and Levitt (2001) present a number of analyses that suggest a causal link between legalized abortion and reductions in crime almost two decades later when the cohorts exposed to legalized abortion reach their peak crime years. Joyce (2003) challenges that finding.

    Full Text Available En el presente artículo se describe la evolución de las propuestas teóricas de Theodore Millon desde 1967 a la fecha. Su obra es considerada como uno de los primeros intentos relevantes de integración en el área de las teorías de la personalidad. Se pone énfasis en los aspectos de mayor potencialidad integradora de sus desarrollos teóricos, tales como la evolución biosocial de la persona (expuesta en su primera teoría, en la que ya incluía dos polaridades: actividad versus pasividad; sí mismo versus otros, las posteriores consideraciones destinadas a enriquecer el modelo de persona, mediante la incorporación de una nueva polaridad, placer-dolor, la resignificación de las etapas vitales que figuraban en su teoría originaria y la interrelación entre áreas estructurales y áreas funcionales de la personalidad. Se puntualizan los aportes incorporados por Millon a la práctica de la evaluación psicológica y psicopatológica, desde una perspectiva sistémica, en la que el concepto de sinergia cobra una especial relevancia. Juntamente con el desarrollo de su teoría personológica, Millon produjo una serie de instrumentos destinados a evaluar la personalidad. Se destaca la importancia que el autor atribuye al proceso de evaluación psicológica, tan complejo como la persona misma, y la vinculación que establece entre los trastornos de personalidad (faceta disfuncional de los estilos de personalidad y los sindromes severos y clínicos con los ejes del DSM-III-R y el DSM-IV.

  15. Obituary: Theodore Siegumfeldt Jacobsen, 1901-2003

    Science.gov (United States)

    Kraft, Robert Paul; Wallerstein, George

    2003-12-01

    Theodor Jacobsen, oldest member of the American Astronomical Society, died in Seattle on 17 July 2003 at the age of 102. His astronomical career, which began in the 1920's, coincided with the rise of astronomy in the University of Washington from a one-man activity within mathematics to today's major astronomical department of more than 30 faculty and other research personnel. Born on 6 February 1901 in Copenhagen, Denmark, he immigrated with his parents, brother and three sisters to the USA in 1917. Even while he was still in Denmark, his interest in astronomy was sparked at age 7 by a gift from his parents of a two-inch telescope. As early as 1921, in the midst of his undergraduate studies in chemistry at Stanford, he wrote to Director W. W. Campbell of Lick Observatory, inquiring how he should prepare for a career in astronomy and whether one could make a living at it. Campbell encouraged him to learn as much physics and mathematics as possible with the outcome that, on completion of his BA degree at Stanford, Jacobsen became a University of California Berkeley graduate student and was appointed a Lick Observatory fellow in the period 1923 to 1926. Following completion of his PhD thesis, entitled ``A Redetermination of the Radial Velocity Curves of Certain Cepheid Variable Stars" (LOB, 379, 1926), he was appointed as ``assistant" at Lick, a position roughly equivalent to that of ``instructor" in a modern University environment. Inquiries concerning whether Lick could recommend ``a promising young man to take over teaching some astronomy and math" from then President Spencer of the University of Washington were received by Lick's acting director Robert Aitken in 1928. They were looking for a Berkeley PhD, said Spencer, and Aitken responded with an enthusiastic recommendation of Theodor Jacobsen, who then took up his duties in Seattle with the beginning of the fall term 1928. Jacobsen succeeded H. Zanstra (of Zanstra mechanism fame) in the Dept. of Mathematics

    Although Joyce was not as familiar with the practice and theory of medicine as was Gustave Flaubert, this article argues that, through Flaubert's legacy, Joyce's writing was influenced by the French school of medical thought. Several aspects of Flaubert's style and narration-what has been dubbed his "medical realism"-were taken up by Joyce: the artist's impersonal perspective, the precision of descriptions, and the materialist attack against Romanticism, as well as the irony built into the narrative voice through free indirect discourse. While the cuckold in Madame Bovary is an incompetent surgeon serving as foil to the precise description of sentiments offered by the narrator, Joyce's cuckold in Ulysses is an amateur physiologist, both perspicacious and sympathetic to human suffering. Bloom's interest in internal bodily processes opens up new dimensions for a modernist aesthetics as he relates physiology and psychology, in accordance with the theories of Xavier Bichat, Etienne Bonnot de Condillac, and Pierre Jean Georges Cabanis. In keeping with such focus, Joyce's physiological version of stream-of-consciousness stems from Flaubert's clinical description of characters, but he directs matters even further inward.

  19. Greek Monk Theodore as the first Primate of Canterbury

    Full Text Available The theological climate of the young Church of Anglo-Saxon Christians was determined by Irish and Welsh monks maintaining the tradition of the Egyptian desert. The Angles and Saxons had a particular vision of the natural world, of the eternal world, a particular comprehension of sin and repentance. Rome in its missionary work used them to attach the British Christians the see of St Peter. Britain had no original link with the culture and tradition of the classical Church. It has been particularly established and enforced in VII and VIII, when England received a great dose of classical learning and theology due to the activity of archbishop of Canterbury Theodore and monk Hadrian. The formerly Greek monk Theodore – well learned in the Holy Scripture as well as Greek and Latin classics – was named the archbishop of Canterbury by pope Vitalian under the condition that he should notintroduce any typically Greek customs. Theodore named Hadrian the abbot of the Canterbury monastery of St Peter. There and in York young English could pursue classical studies of the Holy Scriptures, poetry, philosophy, mathematics, astronomy, etc. It resulted in significant literary development in Britain, of which venerable Bede is an example.Theodore introduced in Canterbury proto-byzantine canonical law, during two famous synods established doctrinal and ecclesiastical foundations of English Christianity based on ancient orthodox tradition of Eastern part of the Mediterranean region. At the Synod of Hatfield,with the other bishops, Theodore confirmed the Nicean Creed, fiveformer ecumenical councils and the generally accepted Church Fathers. They worked also on practical church unity, that is established: common date of Easter with other parts of Christian world, non-intervention ofbishops in other dioceses, canonical laws regulating the attitude of bishops towards monastic communities and the decrees against monophysismonks coming from Persia.

  20. Coincidence, historical repetition, and self-knowledge: Jung, Vico, and Joyce.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Verene, Donald Phillip

    2002-07-01

    Jung develops synchronicity as an a causal principle of connection by recounting various examples of meaningful coincidence from experience and by analysing various systems of divination, notably the I Ching. Philosophical theory of causality has given no significant attention to synchronicity; the events of synchronicity are regarded as chance. The Neapolitan philosopher Giambattista Vico (1668-1744) developed a doctrine of historical experience and of self-knowledge that grounds the phenomenon of synchronicity in a metaphysics. James Joyce employed Vico's conception of language and historical cycles as the basis of Joyce's final literary work, Finnegans Wake. Vico's metaphysical sense of synchronicity and Joyce's literary formulation offer a grounding of this principle in non-divinatory sources in modern Western thought, something which Jung's discussion does not provide. These philosophical and literary perspectives complement Jung's to offer an expanded context in which to recognize synchronicity and to make sense of it.

  1. The Images in A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man and James Joyce's Aesthetics

    2008-01-01

    James Joyce employs the symbolic technique in the novel A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man to depict the complex inner mind of the protagonist.The images are closely related with Joy's aesthetics.The reappearance of these images reinforces and unifies the theme of the novel which eventually makes the novel a complete whole.This coincides with Joyce's principle of"wholenes".In this paper,mainly two images the"bird"and the"water"will be analyzed.Their symbolic meaning changes with the development of Stephen in different chapters.Sometimes they are symbols of threat and pressure;sometimes they are symbols of freedom and flight,which coincides with Joyce's exile aesthetics.

    This data release consists of the following components:Sex ratio data from cottonwood trees at random points on the floodplain in the North and South units of Theodore Roosevelt National Park, ND. These data were used to investigate the effects of age, height above, and distance from the channel on mortality of male and female trees of plains cottonwood (Populus deltoides subsp. monilifera) as described in the Friedman and Griffin (2017) report.Tree core and tree ring data from the North and South Units of Theodore Roosevelt National Park, North Dakota. South Unit data was collected in April 2012, North Unit data was collected in the summer and fall of 2010. The trees are located on the floodplain of the Little Missouri River in Theodore Roosevelt National Park. These data were used to reconstruct flow and climate as described in the Friedman and Griffin (2017) report and in other documents cited by that report. The tree ring data is presented in Standard Tucson format.Floodplain and riparian cottonwood forest areas in the South Unit were digitized as separate shapefiles using 2010 NAIP imagery. They were mapped to assist management of cottonwood forests by increasing understanding of the relation between geomorphic setting, flow, precipitation, temperature, and other factors.Edges of water, channel centerline, valley bottom centerline, extent of valley bottom, and estimated bankfull channel data for the Little Missouri River in the North and South Units were mapped as separate shapefiles from 2010 NAIP imagery as well.

  3. The foundation of experimental ophthalmology by Theodor Leber.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Jaeger, W

    1988-01-01

    Theodor Leber grew up in Heidelberg as the son of a professor of Romance languages. Initially he planned to study natural sciences. Bunsen's advice led him to medicine. During his studies he succeeded in solving a competition problem posed by Helmholtz in the medical department. A short period of practical work in the eye hospital of Knapp was unsatisfactory. In Vienna with the physiologist Carl Ludwig, he was able in 1863/64, at the age of only 24 years, to demonstrate the blood circulation of the eye by color injections into the arteries and veins. Since that time the schematic drawings of his results can be found in every textbook of ophthalmology. On the occasion of the congress of the German Ophthalmological Society in Heidelberg in 1864, Theodor Leber reported on these findings and met with immense approval. In 1864-67 he followed an invitation as coworker of Liebreich to Paris; in 1867 he became A.v. Graefe's coworker in Berlin; in 1871 he moved to Göttingen, which became the first eye clinic with a laboratory for experimental investigations. The second epoch-making discovery accomplished by Leber was the detection of the fluid exchange in the eye. These results have also been confirmed by modern methods. Therefore, Theodor Leber can be called the father of experimental ophthalmology.

    Christian Albert Theodor Billroth, a German surgeon of great artistry and immense culture and promoter of abdominal surgery, who drove the length of the physiology of the surgical field through the use of experimental surgery, is considered the leading German medical figure of the second half of the 19th century in Europe. His works and techniques transcended through time and continue to be implemented (albeit with modifications). He founded a new school of surgery based in criticism, the influence of which affected the development of numerous European and American surgeons. He was also a born artist who excelled in the music field, with many interests in music criticism and public events.

    Full Text Available This article consists of two main parts. The first part quotes, once again, relevant sources for Theodore II Lascaris’ status as co-emperor and discusses some of Theodore II’s activities as co-ruler. The second part deals with the testimonies of three Byzantine historians: George Acropolites, George Pachymeres and Nikephoros Gregoras, who provide us with different information concerning Theodore II Lascaris as co-emperor. While Acropolites refers to Theodore II as basileuj even before he actually came to the throne, Pachymeres and Gregoras claim that Theodore II was never his father’s coruler. Thus, it is the aim of this study to offer an explanation for the differences in the testimonies of the mentioned historians. [Projekat Ministarstva nauke Republike Srbije, br. 177032

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    L. Ventura

    2011-09-01

    Full Text Available James Joyce, unanimously considered one of the greatest novelists of the 20th century, suffered from several diseases. A series of adverse circumstances progressively deteriorated his health, already precarious because of his very disorderly life habits. Aim of the present study is to summarize the various organic diseases Joyce suffered during his lifetime, as long as the main diagnostic conclusions found in scientific literature. Severe eye problems, caused by recurrent iritis attacks even complicated by glaucoma and cataracts, led him almost to blindness. Undernourishment and irregular eating, great anxiety and alcohol abuse were the major causes of the peptic ulcer which tortured him for many years, causing his final death. To these conditions should also be added dental caries, venereal diseases and recurrent polyarthritis. The hypothesis according which Joyce suffered from neurosyphilis is still debated and should be sufficiently demonstrated, whereas a spondyloarthropathy, either Reiter’s syndrome or ankylosing spondylitis, appears more likely. Therapies against these diseases, easily treated today, did not result efficient because of his poor compliance, as well as the state of the art of medical science during his lifetime. A detailed paleopathologic study of Joyce’s human remains could allow to solve the diagnostic doubts concerning his main disease.

  18. Theodor Meynert's contribution to classical 19th century aphasia studies.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Whitaker, H A; Etlinger, S C

    1993-11-01

    Carl Wernicke (1848-1905) is traditionally considered the first to have described the features of, and the brain pathology underlying, impaired auditory comprehension and related symptoms. Although Wernicke (1874) clearly and repeatedly indicates his indebtedness to Theodor von Meynert (1833-1892), this is usually understood as an acknowledgment that Meynert taught Wernicke neuroanatomy (Eggert, 1977); Wernicke's own words in part support this interpretation. A more sophisticated historical analysis notes that, prior to Wernicke, both Johann Schmidt in 1871 and Charlton Bastian in 1869 had described the concept of receptive aphasia, but neither had supported their analyses with autopsy evidence as did Wernicke, thus not dislodging Wernicke's claim of priority. However, a virtually unknown work by Theodor von Meynert, published in 1866, has recently been rediscovered by us ["Ein Fall von Sprachstörung, anatomisch begründet." Medizinische Jahrbücher. XII Band der Zeitschrift der K. K. Gesellleschaft der Arzte in Wien, 22. Jahr. Pp. 152-189]. In this paper Meynert analyzes the anatomical basis for localizing the comprehension of language in the superior temporal gyrus, he argues that lesions in this area should (by analogy to Broca's earlier observations on language expression) cause impairments in language comprehension, and he presents a case of receptive aphasia with autopsy evidence of destruction of the superior temporal gyrus in the left hemisphere. The patient's aphasia was classic; impaired auditory comprehension, and fluent speech with paraphasias. It is clear that Meynert should be given historical credit for his work.

    During their long personal friendship and professional association, Theodore von Karman (1882-1963) and Hugh L. Dryden (1898-1965) exercised a pivotal if somewhat elusive influence over American aeronautics and spaceflight. Both decisive figures in organizing scientists and engineers at home and abroad, both men of undisputed eminence in their technical fields, their range of contacts in government, academia, the armed forces, industry, and professional societies spanned the globe to an extent unparalleled then as now. Moreover, because they coordinated their activities closely, their combined influence far exceeded the sum of each one s individual contributions. This paper illustrates their personal origins as well as the foundations of their friendship, how their relationship became a professional alliance, and their joint impact on the world of aeronautics and astronautics during the twentieth century.

    Full Text Available Joyce Carol Oates’s Preface to the Franklin Library 1st Edition of her 1986 novel Marya: A Life is a theoretical reading guide. In her explanations for the possible autobiographical components discernible in her book, Oates challenges readers to question their ability to know a character, to know an author’s intentions, even to know the self. Oates’s ideas about the fluidity of identity and the dangers of claiming “to know” an other or the self are explored in this story.

  9. Erich Fromm's productivity: creativity as exemplified by Joyce's blooming of Leopold and Molly.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Harrell, Valentina

    2005-01-01

    According to Erich Fromm, the productive character expresses what he called the life force in ways that are, by nature, artistic in quality. His valuing of the vital and the artistic, fueled by this life force in our potential to be human, serves as the cornerstone of his model of psychoanalysis. Gilbert Rose, author of Necessary Illusion: Art as "Witness", also has identified the parallel between analytic and artistic processes, building on the assumption that the therapeutic alliance and the aesthetic alliance are one and the same. In elaborating this assumption and extending the parallel between Rose and Fromm, I draw the conclusion that the qualities of relationships have an impact on one's ability to express oneself creatively, to live an artistic life--that is, to live productively. Psychoanalysis is, in practice, a process that is artistic, creative, and re-creative in nature. To the degree that authentic expression of emotionally charged implicit knowledge of the ineffable (the emotional life that resides deep in the bodymind) results in transformation and healing, the process is artistic in nature. This process is exemplified by examining the life and literary creations of James Joyce, especially Joyce's characters of Molly and Leopold Bloom in Ulysses.

    Zupanc, G K H; Zupanc, M M

    2008-02-01

    Theodore H. Bullock (1905-2005) was a pioneer of integrative and comparative neurobiology and one of the founders of neuroethology. His work--distinguished by the tremendous number of different research themes and animal taxa studied--provided the basis for a comprehensive analysis of brain evolution. Among his major achievements are: one of the first physiological analyses of rhythmic central pattern generators; the first simultaneous recording from both the presynaptic and postsynaptic region of a chemical synapse; the demonstration of intercellular communication through graded potentials; and the discovery of two novel sensory organs formed by infrared receptors in pit vipers and electroreceptors in electric fish. He was also one of the first who applied computational tools to the analysis of complex neural signals and to perform a comparative analysis of cognitive events. His two-volume treatise "Structure and function in the nervous system of invertebrates" (with G. Adrian Horridge) remains the most comprehensive, authoritative review of this topic ever written. In addition to his research merits, his legacy is particularly based on his cosmopolitan way of thinking and acting, his large, worldwide school of students, and his committed advocacy for comparative and systems-oriented neurobiology.

  11. Theodore Roosevelt's "presidential smile" and questionable dental health.

    Christen, Arden G; Christen, Joan A

    2007-01-01

    Theodore ("TR" or "Teddy") Roosevelt (1858-1919), who served as the twenty-sixth President of the United States from 1901 to 1909, was an "Icon of the American Century." Characterized by immense energy, numerous skills, zest for life, and enduring accomplishments, he made an impressive ascent to political importance. However, he also experienced serious, chronic, oral and systemic health problems. In spite of these significant health obstacles, he chose "the strenuous life," and cultivated a lifetime of joy, laughter and humor. TR was known as "the first president that smiled," and he was typically photographed and illustrated grinning from ear to ear. His flashing white teeth, wide smile, and engaging openness became welcome symbols of national and international acceptance. When Roosevelt died, suddenly and prematurely at the age of 60, dentists and physicians of that time began to investigate the probable medical causes of his untimely demise. The "focal infection hysteria" of the early 1900s convinced some of these health professionals that "a bad tooth", that previously had been endodontically treated, was the probable cause of death. Much of the early 20th century evidence-supporting the notion that oral sepsis was a "cause" of local or systemic disease-has now been proven, on closer inspection, to be anecdotal or of questionable scientific merit. Nevertheless, during those early days, it was common practice to extract all endodontically or periodontally involved teeth to eliminate any possible foci of infection that many clinicians believed could cause disease.

  12. Theodore Harold Maiman and the invention of laser

    Rawicz, Andrew H.

    2008-11-01

    In his 1917 "On Quantum Theory of Radiation" paper Albert Einstein introduced the concept of amplification of radiation through stimulated emission with coherence. This concept had not been applied in practice until 1952 when Joseph Weber, followed by Townes, Basov and Prokhorov, developed the theory and started working on the construction of masers. The first maser was demonstrated by Townes' team in 1953. Many researchers began thinking about making an "optical maser", but the transition from centimeter to nanometer waves posed a problem. Well funded researchers in the USA and Soviet Union put their efforts into making an "optical maser". In May 16, 1960 an unknown and underfunded researcher, Theodore Harold Maiman, won the race and demonstrated a fully functional ruby laser. The scientific world was astonished by its simplicity and elegance. Maiman's short paper describing the invention appeared immediately in Nature magazine. This invention caused an avalanche of new laser developments followed by the growing number of applications in almost all fields of our lives. Ted Maiman died in 2007 in Vancouver, just 13 days before the 47th anniversary of the invention of the laser. The intention of this paper is to focus on the life of the scientific maverick and great man.

    Full Text Available O presente trabalho tem como objetivo pôr em discussão a linguagem da obra Finnegans Wake (1939 do autor irlandês James Joyce, pensando-a através do conceito da “palavra faltante” (“lacking word”, expresso por George Steiner em Depois de Babel, como definidor da produção poética ocidental a partir da década de 1870, evidente a princípio sobretudo nos poemas de Rimbaud e Mallarmé, em que a dificuldade que o texto apresenta ao leitor é de uma ordem diferente da suscitada por toda a literatura produzida anteriormente. A essa noção articulamos a de “obra aberta” de Umberto Eco e os contrastes entre linguagem poética e linguagem ideológica, conforme definidos por George Steiner, Terry Eagleton e Stewart Curran, presentes em germe desde o segundo momento do romantismo inglês em Percy Bysshe Shelley (Prometeu Desacorrentado, 1820 e seu “apocalipse humanista”. Joyce, como romancista, com frequência é visto em oposição a Mallarmé, poeta, proferidor da máxima do dever de se “purificar as palavras da tribo”, tornadas desgastadas e esvaziadas de seu sentido pelo uso do cotidiano. No entanto, comparado aos outros romancistas do período, como William Faulkner (O Som e a Fúria, 1929, Enquanto Agonizo, 1930, e mesmo com sua própria produção anterior (O Retrato do Artista Quando Jovem, 1916, Ulisses, 1922, em muitos aspectos, Joyce, no trabalho com a linguagem do Wake, vai além da prosa romanesca e da adaptação da técnica literária à representação mimética. Assim, ele se aproxima da linguagem poética, valendo-se de técnicas chamadas já de “palavras-valise”, “trocadilhos” ou “ideogramas” e de chaves de leitura fornecidas pelo próprio texto para gerar significados a partir dessas palavras, numa liberdade de atribuição de sentidos por parte do leitor fundamentada na comunicação incompleta e limitada quase que unicamente pela rígida estrutura do texto.

    Full Text Available Saussure mudou o mundo ao conceituar a paridade biunívoca do significado e do significante, que chamou em seu Curso de Linguística Geral, signo linguístico. Seguindo seus passos, Roman Jakobson estabeleceu uma fórmula para pensarmos o conceito de metonímia que, por sua vez, foi retomado por Jacques Lacan para enfatizar, entre outras coisas, que o simbólico é, antes de mais nada, um eterno continuum. Dentro dessas perspectivas e com o auxílio desses três pensadores procuramos, neste pequeno artigo, articular certas idiossincrasias da obra de James Joyce, Ulisses, a maior delas sendo, em definitivo, um riverrun que não cessa de se inscrever.

  15. Hacking the aesthetic: David Haines and Joyce Hinterding's new ecologies of signal

    2012-06-01

    Full Text Available Award winning Australian electronic artists David Haines and Joyce Hinterding's installation work is discussed as “signal-work.” Their work reconfigures signal within original assemblages involving subtle audio, high resolution video (both recorded and animated, kilometers of coiled copper wire, antennae or home-built electronics, electrostatic disturbances, the like of very low frequency radiation from the Milky Way, and cross-signal processing. The article develops a context for thinking about the work in terms of Whitehead's process philosophy, as this is relevant to media theory, as well as concepts of plural ecology and ongoing differentiation drawn from Bateson and Guattari. Signal processing is seen as key to all this. The article argues that in Hinterding and Haines’ signal-work new sensations are produced, outside of the normal “syntax” of some models of aesthetic experience. This challenges some aspects of thinking about both aesthetics and political ecology.

    Full Text Available This article draws from Svetlana Boym’s concept of reflective nostalgia to explore the intersections between violence, memory, and the home in Joyce Carol Oates’s novel Foxfire. Through reflective nostalgia, Maddy is able to link the abuse she and her friends endure to various iterations of the home. Reflective nostalgia also allows Maddy to draw connections between anger and the domestic realm, and to write the members of FOXFIRE back into dominant narratives that largely exclude their lived experiences. Ultimately, this paper argues that because nostalgia often centers on the home, it is ideally suited to foreground the untenable nature of idyllic or hegemonic constructions of the domestic realm.

  18. What business are you in? Classic advice from Theodore Levitt.

    Levitt, Theodore

    2006-10-01

    For all the talk about management as a science, experienced executives know that strategic decisions and tactics depend heavily on context. No one understood this better than Theodore Levitt (1925-2006). A Harvard Business School professor renowned as a founder of modern marketing, he sought above all to use his knowledge to serve the needs of businesspeople. In a series of powerfully insightful--and delightfully written--essays in Harvard Business Review, he provoked readers to reexamine their settled thinking about vital issues so that they could better meet the needs of customers. Levitt had the gifts of provocation and generalization, offering ideas that startled readers but compelled them to think creatively and intelligently about their companies. Writing in a period when business was held in far less esteem than it is today, he rejected the easy contempt that many intellectuals had for managers and consumers. Levitt carried that practical approach to his tenure at Harvard Business Review from 1985 to 1989. As one of HBR's most intellectual and most populist chief editors, he understood that the magazine's main purpose was to serve as a kind of sophisticated translation, clarifying authors' raw-and sometimes rough-ideas for impatient, time-pressed readers. This tribute, a look into one of business's great minds, offers excerpts from six of Levitt's most influential HBR articles: "Marketing Myopia" (July-August 1960) "After the Sale Is Over..."(SeptemberOctober1983) "Marketing Success Through Differentiation-of Anything" (January-February 1980) "Production-Line Approach to Service" (September-October 1972) "The Globalization of Markets" (May-June 1983) "Creativity Is Not Enough" (May-June 1963).

  19. Serbs in the poetry of Theodore Prodromos and anonymous Manganeios

    2006-01-01

    Full Text Available Numerous rhetorical writings of the Comnenian period constitute a fruitful field of research, both with respect to historical data, i.e. hard historical facts hidden, though still recognizable, behind the peculiar and somewhat abstract mode of expression of the authors of the twelfth century, and with regard to the poetics of the literary works themselves, i.e. the internal elements characteristic not only for the genre chosen, but also for each particular author. A comparative, historical and literary approach to these works renders their sense clearer and their complex allusions more readily understood. This is a matter of some importance, since allusions constitute one of the basic elements of historical rhetoric, which reached its peak at the time of Emperor Manuel Komnenos (1143-1180, especially during the first half of his reign, i.e. till the end of the fifties of the twelfth century. The poetry of Theodore Prodromes and of the somewhat younger Anonymous ('Prodromos' Manganeios is an excellent example of this intertwining of historical and literary elements, i.e. of the presentation of historical data through rhetorical patterns. One has to concentrate on individual works attempting to determine, as far as possible, the date of composition, the circumstances of writing and the purpose of a particular poem, the occasion for which it was written and the character of the expected audience, in order to better understand both the poetry written by these two rhetoricians and the individual features of the authors, as well as their respective positions in the circle around Emperor Manuel Komnenos. The poems dealt with in the present paper stand out for calling the Serbs by their real name. This naming practice was invariably employed by both rhetoricians in cases when new achievements of the basileus were to be announced and proclaimed immediately after the event, on the occasions of first reports, first celebrations of the new victories and

  1. Stromatolites Record Changing Primary Productivity in Perennially Ice-Covered Lake Joyce, McMurdo Dry Valleys, Antarctica

    Calcite-rich dm-scale columnar stromatolites grew in perennially ice-covered Lake Joyce, Antarctica, and their calcite contains carbon isotopic records of microbial activity during recent lake level rise. Stromatolite growth initiated in water depths < 10 m based on the presence of bubble molds in calcite, and growth ended prior to 2009 when stromatolites were at 20-22 m water depth and received insufficient irradiance for net photosynthetic growth. Some calcite layers in the stromatolites contain cyanobacterial microfossils as well as sediment laminae, which indicate that this calcite precipitated at the stromatolite surface in association with photosynthesizing communities. The innermost stromatolite layers have variable δ13C values ranging from 3.9 to 9.6‰ in coeval calcite. Regions such as topographic highs and parts of stromatolites growing into open water have both thicker calcite layers and δ13C values that are 0.3 to 1.0‰ higher than other areas. Outer stromatolite layers have a smaller range of δ13Ccalcite values spanning 1.3‰. Variations in carbon isotopes can be attributed to photosynthetic effects. Photosynthetic shallow modern mats in Lake Joyce have pH up to 0.4 units higher than the water column, and pH increases and decreases with irradiance through diurnal cycles. Irradiance also varies laterally; light transmission through the Lake Joyce ice cover varied over 500% laterally in 2014. If the modern mats reflect conditions present during early stromatolite growth, high photosynthetic rates likely enhanced calcite precipitation and produced a photosynthetic δ13C signature in stromatolitic calcite. Variability in innermost stromatolite δ13C values is consistent with different rates of photosynthesis due to laterally variable light transmission through the ice. With lake level rise, incident irradiance decreased and became more uniform, leading to more consistent δ13Ccalcite values. Lake Joyce stromatolites thus record the effects of

  10. Villain or Victim? Il caso Yates in “Dear Husband” di Joyce Carol Oates

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Barbara Miceli

    2016-05-01

    Full Text Available In 2009, Joyce Carol Oates published the collection of short stories Dear Husband, which contained the eponymous story inspired by the case of Andrea Yates, a Texan housewife who had killed her five children in the house bathtub in 2001. The woman, who was sectioned in 2007, declared that hers had been “a mother’s final act of mercy”, as she had meant to save her children from the devil. She had been suffering from post-partum psychosis, a condition that made it hard to judge whether she was aware of what she was doing while drowning her kids. The essay analyzes the depiction that Oates made of Yates in her short story, and considers the treatment that the author reserved to her character: is she portrayed as a villain or a victim? With the help of Paul Ricoeur’s concepts of “guilt” and “impurity”, and a comparison between the actuality of the Yeats case and its fictional counterpart, it will be possible to understand the point of view of the author on the culpability of Andrea Yates.

    Full Text Available Este artigo, de natureza teórica, discute algumas ideias de Theodor Adorno, da Teoria Crítica da Sociedade, vinculada à Escola de Frankfurt, acerca do que é liberdade. Esta discussão pretende oferecer subsídios para a psicologia social, já que o tema tem sido pouco debatido. Como procedimento desta pesquisa teórica, selecionou-se a obra Dialética negativa, de Theodor Adorno, por ela apresentar mais profundamente a problematização dessa temática. Adorno indica o quanto pode ser maléfica a delimitação da liberdade a partir de critérios individuais, metafísicos, materiais, ontológicos ou empíricos. Para ele, a liberdade é vivida pelo indivíduo, mas possui uma conexão estreita com a humanidade, uma vez que passa pela ética, pelo particular e pelo universal. Afinal, a liberdade é o princípio que deveria nortear as ações morais.This theoretical article discusses some ideas of Theodor Adorno about freedom, as part of the Critical Theory of Society, developed by the Frankfurt School. This discussion aims to provide some tools to social psychology, since this theme has not been frequently discussed. In order to carry out this theoretical research, Adorno's major work, Negative Dialectics, was selected inasmuch as it approaches this issue more profoundly. Adorno points out the maleficence of freedom restraint due to individual, metaphysical, material, ontological, or empirical criteria. For him, although freedom is experienced by the individual, it possesses a close connection with mankind, since it is related to ethical, private, and universal matters. After all, freedom is the principle that should guide moral actions.

    Full Text Available Joyce Carol Oates’s short story “My Warszawa: 1980” follows the journey of well-respected academician Judith Horne as she travels to and within Poland to participate in an international conference on American culture. She has a vague connection to Poland, with remote family members who were killed in Auschwitz and a Jewish ancestry that can be seen in her features, but she considers these facts unimportant to who she is at the moment. She travels with her lover, who is as remote emotionally as her dead forbears are physically. The emotional connections she makes with the people and land begin to affect her well-ordered and controlled life, including her relationship with him. As they sit side by side on the plane to Poland, he attends to his work as journalist, typewriter on his lap, and Judith gazes at the landscape, an opened book on hers. It is Henry James’s The Awkward Age, unread, chosen by Judith with a logic she cannot recall. Why does Oates give James to Judith, and why does she choose this novel in particular to influence her? Nanda’s story is a warning to Judith, a red flag that unfolds as the younger girl’s ruin proceeds before her eyes, and Judith realizes that the man she loves will never marry her, just as Vanderbank refuses to propose to Nanda. Neither man is comfortable with a woman who is corrupted by knowledge that might undermine his need for authority in the relationship. Nanda understands her position too late, but Judith has time to reflect on her situation, and Oates leaves the story unfinished, with Judith on a plane home with Carl but not definitively resigned to the relationship.

  18. Fiction in Fact and Fact in Fiction in the Writing of Joyce Carol Oates

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Tanya L. Tromble

    2015-01-01

    Full Text Available Joyce Carol Oates draws extensively on news stories, as well as on elements of her own family’s past, to find inspiration for her works of fiction. She has written about the Chappaquiddick incident involving Ted Kennedy and the JonBenet Ramsay murder case. She has worked the Niagara Falls Love Canal environmental scandal into the framework of The Falls and taken inspiration from sordid events from her own family’s past in the beginning of The Gravedigger’s Daughter. However, in none of these examples does Oates purport to relate the precise real-life “facts” of the historical events. Indeed, for an author who believes in the multiplicity of truths such a task would be superfluous, if it was in fact possible, given what she perceives as the inherently “error-prone” nature of our species. “Language,” she writes in her essay “On Fiction in Fact,” “by its very nature tends to distort experience. With the best of intentions, in recalling the past, if even a dream of the previous night, we are already altering – one might say violating – the original experience, which may have been wordless and was certainly improvised.” In response to what she sees as the problematic nature of language, memory and the artificial nature of writing, Oates has cultivated a self-described “psychological realism” that seeks to depict a greater realm of truth beyond the world of facts, that is to say the truth of emotion and felt experience, “states of mind [which are] real enough – emotions, moods, shifting obsessions, beliefs – though immeasurable.” This article compares both fiction and non-fiction works by Oates – notably, A Widow’s Story, Sourland, The Falls – in a discussion of the fluctuating frontier between the two genres and the notion of psychological Truth that this tenuous relationship reveals.

    2016-02-01

    Full Text Available The present article studies the relationship between Heraclitean concepts êthos and daímôn from Classical Antiquity to the first half of the 20th century by analysing the differences between the siren’s myth in The Odyssey and its contemporary readings in Kafka and Joyce. It starts by approaching the relationship Erich Auerbach establishes between both concepts in Homer and Greek Tragedy and opposing them to the modern birth of what Imre Kertész terms “functional man”. It then focuses on Kafka to show the modern lack of communication between character and destiny –the symbol of which is the siren’s silence in Das Schweigen der Sirenen–, as well as a possible answer to the set out nihilism. Regarding Joyce, it studies the chapter “Sirens” from Ulysses to reveal how the modern song’s universal attraction frustrates its listeners’ self-expression.

    Full Text Available The life and work of Ennodius (473/474–521 falls in a crucial but highly troubled period of late antiquity. With the fall of the Western Roman Empire, the arrival of the Ostrogoths, and Theodoric’s takeover of authority, Ennodius witnessed a number of processes which set the course of events for the centuries to come. He left an important testimony to his time in his panegyric to King Theodoric, which demonstrates the author's high level of classical education as well as his familiarity with classical, imperial, and early Christian literature. A skilfully written rhetorical work spanning the years 461–506/507, elaborate in style and content, it bears ample testimony to the historical reality of Theodoric’s time and constitutes an important historical source for the early period after the fall of the Western Roman Empire. The panegyric dates from the first half of 507. The diversity of its content leaves the reasons for its composition open to speculation, the most likely hypothesis being that Ennodius wished to thank Theodoric for his victories and achievements in general (no particular event is highlighted. It is no coincidence that the panegyric was composed after the final regulation of Theodoric’s authority and after a relatively long period of peace. It is clear from the panegyric that Ennodius had a highly positive attitude to Theodoric, whom he saw as a continuator and stimulator of the idea of eternal Rome. In his view, Theodoric’s assumption of authority over the Western part of the Roman Empire was a historical watershed which would bring a rejuvenation of Rome; the beginning of a new golden age. Besides its great historical value, the work of Ennodius is distinguished by its rhetorical and stylistic perfection. Confronted with the mass of historical material on Theodoric, Ennodius would have run into difficulties selecting an appropriate topic (inventio, but he emerges as a skilled collector and a masterly organiser in

    Full Text Available Desde su obra seminal de 1976, Psicopatología moderna: un enfoque biosocial de los aprendizajes erróneos y de los disfuncionalismos, y por más de 30 años Theodore Millon ha desarrollado una ciencia compleja de la personalidad y su patología. En su modelo, el autor postula la existencia de tres polaridades básicas, placer-dolor, activo-pasivo y yo-otros, para explicar las diferencias entre los diferentes tipos de personalidad. El modelo original de aprendizaje biosocial fue reformulado en 1990 a la luz de los conceptos evolutivos. A lo largo de todo este tiempo, Millon junto a sus seguidores han establecido un paradigma para comprender la personalidad. Al mismo tiempo, há argumentado reiteradamente que una ciencia clínica comprensiva de la personalidad necesita integrar cuatro componentes básicos: teoría o esquemas conceptuales explicativos, una nosología formal, herramientas de evaluación, e intervenciones terapéuticas adecuadas. En este trabajo, se resumen los aspectos primordiales del Modelo de Millon en lo que hace a esos diferentes componentes.From its seminal work of 1976, Psicopatología moderna: un enfoque biosocial de los aprendizajes erróneos y de los disfuncionalismos, and by more than 30 years Theodore Millon has developed a complex science of the personality and its pathology.

    The first theory of electrolysis was written in Rome (1805) and was published as a pamphlet-a study that was quickly translated from French into English and German. According to Theodor Grotthuss, author of theory, the electrolyte in between Volta's pile electrodes aligns chains of polarized water particles (molecules). Electric current and matter transfer occurs when these particles instantly switch their polarized water particle fragments. These jumps in the chain of polarized electrolyte held between different electrodes results in oxygen build up next to one electrode and hydrogen build up next to the other electrode. This theory offered several insights for further development. One was the model leap transfers. The other, more fruitful insight was the self-action chain or the force field of force model. That was picked up by Michael Faraday who transformed and developed it further into the concept of electric and magnetic fields and lines of force. In Grotthuss' theory he finds the idea of the concept of ion as an individual charged fragment of molecule. This article is based on the earlier studies of author [J.A.

    2003-03-01

    Theodore Brown Rasmussen succeeded Wilder Penfield as director of the Montreal Neurological Institute (MNI) and held this post from 1960 to 1972. During his career, Rasmussen probably performed more operations for epilepsy than any other surgeon of his time; he became the foremost authority in this field. His meticulous follow-up analyses of the MNI seizure series provided substantial evidence for the success of surgery in the treatment of focal epilepsy. In addition, he made significant contributions to surgery of the pituitary gland for control of cancer, treatment of cerebral and spinal tumors, application of the intracarotid Amytal test for lateralization of speech and memory function, and characterization and treatment of epilepsy accompanied by chronic encephalitis, now referred to as Rasmussen syndrome. His painstaking attention to surgical details as well as his insistence on close monitoring of patient care and critical scrutiny of clinical results marked him as an outstanding teacher and role model for young neurosurgeons and neuroscientists.

  17. Brigadier General Theodore C Lyster [correction of Lister], MD: father of American aviation medicine.

    2000-07-01

    Aviation medicine came into existence as a recognized entity when certain standards were established during and shortly after World War I. During this time, accident rates were high. In fact, a larger number of pilots were dying in accidents than in combat. Figures from Great Britain's casualty list at the close of the first year of World War I indicated that for every 100 aviators killed, 60 died as a result of some individual physical defect, 30 from some form of recklessness or careless behavior, 8 as a result of some mechanical defect in the airplane, and only 2 at the hands of the enemy. Aviators were found to be in poor physical condition. Because there were no established regulations with regard to workloads, aviators were frequently found to have been flying to a point beyond exhaustion. Because of workload, chronic fatigue, and emotional stress, aviators were constantly called upon to perform superhuman feats when not in peak physical condition. Errors in judgement were common. The majority of pilots lost weight as a somatic sign of stress. This was recognized by Theodore Lyster [corrected] who had recently been appointed as the Chief Surgeon, Aviation Section of the U.S. Army. Such problems were not diagnosed by medical officers because they were not trained to recognize them. Theodore Charles Lyster [corrected] was the son of Captain William J. and Martha Doughty Lyster [corrected]. He was an Army "brat" who entered the world on July 10, 1875. His childhood was spent in various posts around the country. At the age of 7, Lyster [corrected] contracted yellow fever while living in Fort Brown, TX. The boy was treated by William Gorgas, a young post surgeon. Gorgas was credited with the young boy's recovery. Later, Gorgas was to marry Lyster's [corrected] aunt making Lyster [corrected] his nephew by marriage. Having survived the yellow fever infection, young Lyster [corrected] had a lifelong immunity to the disease.

    Full Text Available In the following pages I would like to try the quite tight interpretation that carries out Theodor Wiesengrund Adorno of the overflowing and complex philosophical work of Walter Benjamin. In order to do it I shall use the text titled Sobre Walter Benjamin, published by Cátedra, Madrid, 1995. In this book they are compiled both: some texts around the philosophical work of Benjamin and some of the letters directed by Adorno to his friend. Be worth to denote that several of the works are later to the death of Benjamín. Concretely, I shall refer, after to have analyzed the portrait of Benjamín made by Adorno, to the chapters named “Dirección única de Walter Benjamín”, “Sobre algunos motivos en Baudelaire” and “Sobre Franz Kafka. Con ocasión del décimo aniversario de su muerte”. To them I shall add few works written by the  own Benjamin that under similar titles have been published into his book Sobre el Programa de la Filosofía Futura y otros ensayos, Monte Avila, Caracas, 1970.

    Full Text Available This paper investigates the problem of violence among young people in the light of thought of Theodor Adorno, who work in education and emancipation takes the view that the attempt to overcome the barbarism is crucial for human survival. Education is able to help guide and transform our children and young people emancipated individuals? How far the power of knowledge and enlightenment? Adorno seeks to answer these questions, taking a critical view of the role of education and culture in the formation of an emancipated society. For this thinker, only through freedom and its full political and social engagement, the man would be able to build an egalitarian society, overcoming the alienation and social void. In its education project, Adorno points to the importance of protecting without stifling individual capacity of each human being, looking for a means to educate for the formation of groups is a positive thing and not a breeding ground of violence and barbarism. Thus, the objective education to alert people to the fight against barbarism, so that they realize the negative character of this reality and try to put it out.

  5. Representations of Power in the Byzantios Oration of Theodore Metochites: Illusions and Realities

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Alexandra Voudourie

    2013-04-01

    Full Text Available The early 14th century and so far very little commented on Byzantios logos by Theodore Metochites appears to be the first surviving, lengthy, and independent city encomium in the Greek language since the 4th century Antiochikos logos by Libanios. Metochites seems to be quite familiar with the late antique tradition of the extended independent city praises and as a result the 70 folia long laus Constantinopolitana, includes all the expected, and power-indicating praising themes: thesis, foundation, walls, secular buildings and other infrastructure, occupations of the citizens, internal and external beauty, piety of the citizens and churches, secular education, ports and trade, commonwealth and cosmopolitanism, ecumenical character, intense Christian faith and synkrisis with other famous cities. But can an encomium of Constantinople, written in the dramatic first decade of the 14th century, really be a source of any power representations at all? Or should one reassess the encomiastic topoi and attempt to distinguish fact from fiction and power from illusion of power? Finally, can the lengthier and more persistent analysis of particular features serve as a proof of their more realistic character? The above questions are approached by using some hidden dating indicators of Byzantios logos, in addition to a critical evaluation of Metochites᾽ use of the late antique rhetorical guidelines, and in the light of the latest research on the economic and spiritual life in early Palaiologan Constantinople.

    Full Text Available Karl Popper versus Theodor Adorno: Lessons from a historical confrontation. In 1961, during the Congress of the German Society of Sociology, two great theoretical references of the XX century faced in a historical debate about the logic of the social sciences. In addition to methodological issues strict sense, the confrontation became known as a debate between positivism and dialectic. The article first deals with the theoretical trajectories of Popper and Adorno and the relation of their theories with their political and ideological certainties. On one hand, the trajectory of the Popperian epistemology is examined, its contributions and vigorous attacks on Marx in what he called 'poverty of historicism" and false predictive Marxist world, and, on the other hand, the role of Adorno in the Frankfurt School, his criticism of totalitarianism and the defense of a critical emancipatory reason. The article also deals with the confrontation itself, the exposure of Popper's twenty-seven theses that culminate with the situation logic and the method of the economy as exemplary for the social sciences and Adorno's critical perspective of sociology and society as non-separable objects. In conclusion we show how the articulation of theory with the weltanschauung of each author helps to clarify the terms of the debate and how the confrontation contributed unequivocally to the dynamics of scientific progress and for the critical history of the ideas.

  7. Theodor Meynert (1833-1892), pioneer and visionary of brain research.

    1997-12-01

    Theodor Meynert (1833-1892) was the first scientist to perceive brain research as an interdisciplinary project, documented by his own fundamental contributions as a selfstanding enterprise and presented with comprehensive objectives of research. Meynert was born in Dresden and lived in Vienna from the age of 8. In a steep career, he reached high professional recognition: Aged 37, he took charge of the management of the 1st Psychiatric Clinic, established especially for him; he exerted competent influence in the so-called 2nd Viennese School of Medicine and at international level. The focal points of his scientific work have been anatomy and histology of cerebrum and brainstem, topography and functional relations of the main connecting fiber systems, also demonstrated by precisely interpreted clinipathological obaservations. Among his timely findings should be stressed: the stratified texture, cellular architecture and regional differentiation of the cerebral cortex as a basis of present cytoarchitectonics and of cortical localisation theory, e.g., regarding speech defects. Intending to establish psychiatry as an exact science on the basis of brain pathology, Meynert formulated a program which anticipates the targets designed by today's biological psychiatry. The vital and psychic dynamics of the brain he interpreted in critical speculation along the lines of the contemporary philosophy of nature. Meynert combined his ingenious exact findings with results of the upcoming neurophysiology, neurochemistry and neuropsychology into a prodigious coherent system representing the complexity of the human brain-world relationship. These achievements reveal Meynert as the founder of scientific brain research.

    2008-10-01

    Full Text Available Le livre est un symbole de la liberté créatrice de l’homme et de sa faculté d’exprimer ses émotions. Quand le livre est interdit et même brûlé, cette liberté est mise en danger. L’homme se perd dans le bonheur facile, et finit par s’anéantir. Le livre est considéré comme le plus grand obstacle au bonheur dans une société qui recherche l’absence de douleur. Ray Bradbury évoque une évolution effrayante dans Fahrenheit 451, il dépeint la destruction des livres par le feu. L’homme doit détruire cette société pour retrouver son côté sombre et le droit au livre. Mais ce n’est pas seulement la perte de la liberté créatrice que l’homme cherche à reconquérir, c’est le devoir de mémoire dans les livres. L’isolement que constitue le livre et le rapport à lui reste cependant un danger quand la lecture devient enfermement. Dans Auto-da-fé d’Elias Canetti, c’est un savant qui cherche à remplacer la vie par les livres. Il finit aussi par se détruire parce qu’il ne cherche plus le contact de l’autre. Enfin, c’est Ulysse de James Joyce qui constitue une véritable bibliothèque imaginaire par l’existence d’un seul livre dans la tête du lecteur. Si un seul livre peut concentrer en lui toute lecture possible, le lecteur est enfin libéré de l’immobilité forcée de la lecture et peut aller à la rencontre de l’autre et de la vie, enfin libéré de cette activité qui l’enferme pour la transformer en flux de la conscience, il devient créateur du déploiement d’une véritable activité vitale et libératrice.

  11. Franz Volhard and Theodor Fahr: achievements and controversies in their research in renal disease and hypertension.

    Heidland, A; Gerabek, W; Sebekova, K

    2001-01-01

    The clinician, Franz Volhard, and the pathologist, Theodor Fahr, worked closely together in Mannheim from 1909 until 1915 and introduced a novel classification of renal diseases. In the monograph entitled 'Die Bright'sche Nierenkrankheit, Klinik, Pathologie und Atlas' (1914) they differentiated between degenerative (nephroses), inflammatory (nephritides) and arteriosclerotic (scleroses) diseases. Nephrosclerosis was divided into the benign and malignant form, of which the latter stood the test of time as a new disease entity. Fahr further divided benign nephrosclerosis into the compensated and decompensated form--depending on the presence or absence of glomerular injury. In the pathogenesis of malignant nephrosclerosis, Volhard stressed the decisive role of severe blood pressure elevation, while Fahr postulated an inflammatory mechanism, a concept later confirmed by Adalbert Bohle for at least a minority of patients. A very far reaching concept of Franz Volhard was his idea that pale (renal) hypertension results from a pressor substance released from ischaemic kidney(s) contributing--via a vicious circle--to a further rise in blood pressure with subsequent renovascular injury and aggravation of hypertension. This hypothesis was supported in 1930 by initial experiments of his collaborator, Hartwich (demonstrating in dogs a mild rise in blood pressure after ligation of branches of the renal artery) and definitively proven by Goldblatt (1934) in dogs by induction of severe and persistent hypertension after clamping of both renal arteries. The consequent detection of the renin angiotensin system was the final confirmation of Volhard's postulated renal pressor substance. In the pathogenesis of red (essential) hypertension, Volhard stressed the role of hereditary factors, age, obesity and potentially of severe alcoholism. He emphasised a premature reduction of vascular distensibility (due to elastosis of the prearterioles), a high cardiac output as well as a dampening of

    2016-09-01

    Full Text Available The present article shows the history of the discovery and publishing the manuscript contained the only fully survived dogmatic writing of Theodore of Mopsuestia. Also, the article provides the short description of the homilies’ contents and denotes the significance of the discovered text for patrology and liturgical studies. Although the Greek text of the Catechetical Homilies is missed, the work is preserved in the Syriac translation and is available thanks to publication of Alphonse Mingana in 1932 and 1933. The full text of the Catechetical Homilies allows us to put the quotations which were the basis for Theodore’s condemnation on the Fifth Ecumenical Council in their original context and to clarify their meaning, making them sound more acceptable. The homilies help us rightly understand the vague and ambiguous places in other Theodore’s writings and have more complete idea of his christology. The author of the Catechetical Homilies rejects the doctrine of the “Two Sons” and affirms the unity of Christ’s Person. He teaches of imperishability of “the perfect union” of two natures, so the existence of Christ as “mere man” is seemed to be impossible. Moreover, the text of the Catechetical Homilies gives us the rich evidence of Theodore’s sacramental theology that was not much treated before Mingana’s discovery. The Catechetical Homilies is, in addition, a source for the history of Liturgy, because they contain a detailed description of the Sacraments of baptism and the Eucharist.

    Full Text Available No ensaio Engagement, de 1962, Theodor Adorno recoloca em discussão a dicotomia entre literatura engajada e literatura autônoma, advertindo que em seu tempo a controvérsia não se situa mais no nível da sobrevivência humana ou da vida em sociedade, mas se coloca como uma especulação intelectual. O presente texto recupera as principais ideias de Adorno a respeito do tema e procura refletir sobre elas. O pensador apresenta os dois polos de pensamento sobre o problema e inicia dizendo que a tensão entre eles agora está diluída. Seguem-se então considerações sobre as confusões que envolvem o debate sobre o engagement, reflexões sobre a filosofia da arte de Sartre e sua concretização em obras de ficção, a arte e a didática de Bertolt Brecht, bem como o tratamento que o dramaturgo alemão dá ao fascismo, a relação entre o tom da poesia e a política, o problema do sofrimento ligado à obra de arte, o experimentalismo contemporâneo de Kafka e Becket, as tradições culturais da França e da Alemanha, e as relações entre a política e a arte autônoma.

  14. Pharmacist Theodor Salzer (1833-1900) and the discovery of bisphosphonates.

    Herbert Fleisch, the father of the therapeutic use of bisphosphonates in modern medicine, repeatedly stated in his numerous reviews that bisphosphonates were first synthesized 1865 in Germany by the Russian chemist Menschutkin. He was wrong on two counts. Had Menschutkin synthesized bisphosphonates, as he was a student of Wurtz at the time of the "synthesis", the birthplace of the substances would have been France and not Germany; but he did not. By reacting phosphorous acid with acetyl-chloride he obtained derivatives of pyro-phosphorous and pyro-phosphoric acids (P-O-P backbone) and not bisphosphonates (P-C-P backbone). The discovery of the first bisphosphonate occurred indeed in Germany but some thirty years later and not without some drama. First 1894 the pharmacist Theodor Salzer (1833-1900) described an impurity contained in commercially available phosphoric acid but failed to identify it as acetodiphosphoric acid, a bisphosphonate. 1896, an undergraduate student, Hans von Baeyer working in Munich at the Royal Academy of Sciences in the chemical laboratory of his father Adolf (the 1905 Nobel Prize laureate and discoverer of the barbiturates) synthesized an unknown substance which his famous father summarily rejected as some "Dreck" or impurity. Only due to the tenacity of young Hans work on the matter was continued and the paper describing the synthesis published a year later. The correctness of the chemical structure of the compound as assumed by von Baeyer (and his Ph.D. supervisor Hofmann) was confirmed 1901 by Heidepriem, a Ph.D. student of Hofmann. This short report attempts to shed some light on the life of the lesser known pharmacists and chemists involved in the synthesis of the first bisphosphonate, focusing on Salzer, Heidepriem and von Baeyer.

    Full Text Available El presente trabajo se propone explorar la noción de “epifanía” tal como es descrita por Gilles Deleuze en Diferencia y repetición en referencia a la obra del escritor irlandés James Joyce. Intentaremos mostrar que en la lectura deleuzeana de Joyce puede encontrarse una concepción ontológica de la obra de arte moderna o experimental que la hace diferir cualitativamente de otros entes e, inclusive, de otro tipo de obras de arte. Constituye la hipótesis de este trabajo que la utilización del concepto de epifanía referido al arte implicaría comprender el modo de aparecer propio de la obra experimental como presentación inmediata del ser o mostrarse en la superficie de lo “divino” –– en terminología deleuzeana, de lo virtual como ámbito ontológico (desfundamental. Compararemos para ello esta noción de epifanía a la noción de fenómeno tal como es desarrollada por Heidegger en Ser y tiempo.

    Full Text Available This article focuses on deadly girls’ voices in "The Banshee" and "Doll: A Romance of the Mississippi," two short stories taken from Joyce Carol Oates’s collection The Female of the Species, subtitled Tales of Mystery and Suspense. It shows that children are used as leading and focal characters not only to increase suspense but also to manipulate the readers’ traditional sets of ethical, semantic and literary references. Oates resorts to her favourite “aesthetics of fear” for it is a powerful means of putting horror and abjection at a distance, and it is associated with the question of meaning—"meaning is what we fear most of losing," she says. Thus she involves her readers in complex interpretations of her hybrid tales—one drawing from the Gothic, the other from the grotesque—and thereby leads them to a better understanding of themselves and their humanity.

    This article summarizes the impact of Theodore Millon's work on the disciplines of health psychology and behavioral medicine over the past 5 decades spanning from the late 1960s to present. The article is written from my perspectives as a graduate student mentored by Millon on through my faculty career as a collaborator in test construction and empirical validation research. Several of the most recent entries in this summary reflect projects that were ongoing at the time of his passing, revealing the innovation and visionary spirit that he demonstrated up until the end of his life. Considering that this summary is restricted to Millon's contributions to the disciplines of health psychology and behavioral medicine, this work comprises only a small portion of his larger contribution to the field of psychology and the areas of personality theory and psychological assessment more broadly.

    Full Text Available Trata-se aqui de umas notas de trabalho sobre o tema da técnica em Theodor W. Adorno. O ensaio Educação após Auschwitz e um conjunto de aforismos que compõem o livro Minima moralia são tomados como fontes principais, mas também como roteiro de investigação. As críticas de Adorno à técnica aparecem em vários registros e privilegiamos, nos marcos de nossa reflexão, as relacionados ao corpo e à produção da consciência, elementos que se combinam diversamente nas obras pesquisadas, mas que encontram seu desiderato na crítica ao mundo administrado e aos destinos da subjetividade. Nossos resultados mostram que nas reflexões de Adorno o profundo processo de embrutecimento do humano e a supressão de quaisquer traços de particularidade aparecem intimamente relacionados com o crescente processo de tecnificação, o que por sua vez engendra uma certa pedagogia dos gestos e do corpo. Sugere-se, neste sentido, que a técnica mais refinada não necessariamente leva a um aumento das possibilidades humanas, mas, talvez encaminhe, tendencialmente, a uma escravização do corpo por meio da incorporação dos processos reificadores da tecnificação.This paper brings some work notes on the topic of technique by Theodor W. Adorno. The essay Education after Auschwitz and some of the aphorisms in Minima moralia are taken as main sources, and also as part of an investigation plan. Adorno's criticism of technique appears in several parts of his work. In our reflection, we have prioritized criticism related to the body and the production of conscience, as they are elements which have different combinations in the researched texts, but a common goal in the criticism of the administered world and the destiny of subjectivity. Our results show that, in Adorno's reflections, the deep process of human brutalization and the suppression of any particularity traits are closely related to the growing technification process, which engenders a certain gesture

A partir da reflexão elaborada pelo frankfurtiano acerca da relação entre teoria e práxis, procuramos compreender o papel político conferido às suas concepções de filosofia e de formação humana e discutir os seus limites e possibilidades no presente. Para tanto, elegemos como objeto de análise as conferências pronunciadas pelo autor e os artigos que escreveu sobre o assunto, entre 1959 e 1969, com o objetivo de recuperar os possíveis nexos teóricos entre filosofia e educação em sua obra e o significado que seu pensamento crítico e sua concepção de educação política assumiram nesse contexto; e de discutir sua eventual atualidade. Pretendemos, assim, reconstituir a reflexão de Adorno sobre o tema, compreendendo o seu significado em seu projeto filosófico, de modo a vislumbrar a face filosófica educacional de seu pensamento crítico.This article discusses the relationship between philosophy and education in Theodor Adorno's ideas. From the reflection about the relation between theory and praxis in his thoughts, we seek to understand the political role within his conceptions of philosophy and human formation and discuss limits and possibilities in the present. To this end, we selected for our object of analysis the conferences given by the author and articles he wrote on the subject, between 1959 and 1969, so as to recover the possible nexus between philosophy and theoretical education in his work, the meaning that his critical thinking and his conception of political education has taken in this context and to discuss how relevant this is nowadays. We therefore intend to reconstitute Adorno's reflection on the topicand understand its meaning in his philosophical project in order to see the educational philosophical aspect in his critical thinking.

    2016-12-01

    The beginnings of modern western medicine reach to about 1800 when under the liberating influence of French Revolution observation of diseases was started to follow more scientifically justified criteria. At that time speculative doctrines prevailed, e. g. those set up natural philosopher Schelling. In this context Internist Friedrich Theodor von Frerichs at Berlin Charité University Hospital gained great merits because of his struggle for a scientifically-based experimental clinical medicine. This is demonstrated nicely in a recently found autograph document.

    2015-10-01

    Full Text Available The article deals with one aspect of Byzantine folk anthropology in its religious incarnation. We are speaking about human limbs, feet of the Saint, who showed specific ability of miracles using them. Among the many wonders which were committed by Holy Theodore Sikeot, who was Abbot of Sikeon monastery and former Bishop of Anastasiopol (date of death – April 22, 613, three of them deserve special attention. In the narration of life of the Saint it is told about healing the patients who suffered from paralysis of limbs and, consequently, were deprived of their ability to move. Saint Theodore saved them from illness not only by the power of prayer. In all cases he put his foot on the body of the patient, in particular, on chest and knees. This kind of touch makes us think about the meaning of committed ritual and about that complex of ideas which was connected with it. Presumably, the described action reflected not only the individual attitude of the hagiographer but also an attitude of the audience, to which it was addressed. For this reason, this phenomenon should be considered not as a hagiographic topos, but as an element of the mythological-ritual continuum, which is connected with religious contemplation of the specificity of the different parts of the human body, in particular, of the lower limbs. The tradition of honoring the legs and their prints are well known and are rooted in “deep antiquity”. In the pre-Christian world of the Graeco- Roman time there was the cult of the legs, the image of which was regarded as an amulet, which had an apotropaic power. The feet can be associated with different deities, however, most of all, the following cult was associated with Serapis, the God of fertility, underworld and healing. It was believed that the right foot of Serapis had healing force. However, the process of transferring of the properties of Serapis foot to the foot of Christian Saint raises some questions. First of all, about

Roosevelt para resolver la ecuación formulada por el ascenso de Estados Unidos a potencia mundial y su tradicional retraimiento a la hora de participar en los asuntos mundiales. A partir de entonces y bajo su impulso, comenzó un debate que está lejos de resolverse sobre qué papel debe desempeñar Estados Unidos en la comunidad internacional y cómo debe desempeñarlo.the aim of this article is to study the polical legacy of Theodore Roosevelt under the perspective of his foreign policy and to show its relevance in the XXI century, both for his influence in the evolution of the american political thought and for its own characteristics.

    Full Text Available n this article the author highlights some issues about Adorno’s thought that are fundamental to be acquired in the present age. It focuses on the questions most criticized in the postwar period: cultural industry, managed world, presumed snobbery about mass society, decline of aura, end of individuality, post-individual or pseudo-individuality, ticket mentality. Therefore, the author suggests to explain contemporary age starting from the Adornian model, an important interpretive antecedent to understand new media and the world that they produce. So this article underscores the similarity about many causes for reflection in Theodor W. Adorno and also H. Marcuse: in spite of oustanding differences, both theorists persist on the “power of negative thinking” and on the “feeling of the contrary”. This persistence lays the foundations of critical thought in Adorno, who shows parodying art such as the critical model par excellence. Finally, last pages are directed to remark the importance of Adorno’s thought such as metacritical philosophy, surely more fruitful than the paradigm of the “second generation” in the following decades.

    Full Text Available The era of the early ‘Abbasid caliphate made an important mark on the history of the world by the event of the Greek translation movement, i.e. the translation of Greek thoughts into the Arabic language. In addition to this development, the era also saw the flourishing of interreligious discourse, in both polemical literatures and religious debates, especially between Christians and Muslims. This article tries to describe how those two historical remarks are correlated under the light of other factors such as politics and religious identity. The earliest debate was happened between caliph al-Mahdi (r. 755-785 CE and a Nestorian Catholicos, Timothy I (728- 823 CE, as the first sample of religious discourses. The second one is the debate between the caliph al-Ma’mun (r. 813-833CE, who arranged many religious debates in his court, with Theodore Abu Qurra (755 – 830 CE, Bishop of Harran. By knowing the motives of the two caliphs who sponsored those events, readers would catch a better picture of the historical contexts of that time.

    2015-02-01

    Full Text Available The ugly has long been foundered on the rocks of exclusion for the locus classicus of aesthetics rotates in the main around the beautiful, setting the ugly as an anathema. Hence, the lens through which the ugly was refracted had been negative and the ugly was destined to fall into the cracks of aesthetics. However, Theodor Adorno shifts the focus from the beautiful and inducts the ugly into the aesthetic canon from a different perspective that challenges many ideological calluses; in his philosophy the ugly is closely related to the return of myth in modern art. Audre Lorde equally refuses to ride the aesthetic wave or fall under its governance; to accomplish that she also resorts to myth. Although The Black Unicorn (1978, her magnum opus, teems with mythical tales, it has never been interpreted from the Adornian doctrine. Myriad readings tackled Lorde's use of mythology principally as an endeavor to forge an African and feminist identity.  By reading her poetry through Adorno's ugly, the article argues that Lorde's use of African myths performs the same aesthetic role Adorno assigns to the ugly in reflecting and resisting society.

    2012-09-01

    Full Text Available Christian Theodor Vaupell (1821–1862 was a Danish scholar with pioneering investigations particularly on the late Quaternary development of bog forests, but also microscopy of plant anatomy and vegetative reproduction. His studies contributed to the early scientific thinking of the Quaternary environmental changes. Before his academic efforts, he had already survived the war between Prussia and Denmark albeit he became severely wounded and his left arm was amputated. The drama of his academic efforts, on the other hand, lies in the more or less suspicious dispute of his first doctoral thesis and his dismissal from the academic world during the following years. At the same time, he earned praise for his first thesis (never accepted as thesis but published as a regular book from abroad; he was also able to attract private foundations for financial support of his scientific work. Following the enthusiasm of his time, Vaupell became attracted to the pine megafossils known to have been preserved in the bogs in north-west Europe. The megafossils led him to study not only the life systems of the ancient and modern bog forests but also their associations with Earth processes. As an interesting detail of his research, Vaupell made compound interpretations on the occurrence of megafossil stumps and their tree-ring growth patterns. In the course of the 20th century, Vaupell's studies have been cited as a general reference of post-glacial vegetation change and plant succession rather than clearly pioneering investigations of palaeoecology, an angle that we would like put into a contrasting perspective. To do so, we provide a brief portrait of Christian Vaupell and his research career. In conclusion, we wish to emphasize the comprehensiveness of Vaupell's views on the late Quaternary vegetation changes and the role of plant succession in that development.

Defender-se-á que a politização do pensamento adorniano é possível, muito embora as suas valências críticas não se restrinjam a essa possibilidade. Hoje, a dialéctica negativa funcionaria também como antídoto contra os atalhos tomados pelas correntes "voluntarista" (Peter Hallward, "messiânica" (Agamben e "ontológica" (realismo especulativo da filosofia, à entrada do século XXI.

Em diálogo com alguns dos seus interlocutores (Markus Gabriel e Adrian Johnston, sugere-se que o desenvolvimento de uma "dialéctica constelar" depende da introdução de um elemento destotalizador no seio do diagnóstico radical - a um só tempo materialista e transcendental - da dialéctica negativa.

    Full Text Available This article begins with the assertion that now more than ever, in the aftermath of Ferguson and in a time when many believe our society to be post-racial, we need to bring together scholars and activists who care about racial justice, regardless of discipline, and build interdisciplinary tools for fighting racism. Furthermore, we need to understand and reveal how whiteness has been socially constructed because the power of whiteness lies in its invisibility, and that fuels the perpetuation of systemic racism. In making whiteness visible, we can see how it has been wielded as a weapon, which in turn will allow us to see how destructive it is for everyone, whites included. As part of this work, we need to break down the disciplinary boundary between literary studies and critical race theory (a field within legal studies that examines systemic racism in the context of the law. One example of such an interdisciplinary intervention is to bring together Cheryl Harris, a critical race theorist, and Joyce Carol Oates, a novelist. Harris published one of the foundational pieces of critical race theory in 1993 with her law review article “Whiteness as Property,” a legal analysis of whiteness, and Oates produced a masterpiece of American literature in 1980 with her novel Bellefleur, a complex story of a powerful white family that spans seven generations. This pairing lays the groundwork for the type of interdisciplinary dialogue we need because, within literary studies, when the novelist is white and the characters are white, there is still very little emphasis on the study of whiteness even though race is a significant focus of attention when the novelist and characters are people of color. Whiteness is still invisible, and that is part of the problem I am describing, both within literary studies and in our society at large. We need an interdisciplinary intervention to pull back the curtain on whiteness, see how it operates, recognize its danger, and

    Interior monologue is a technique frequently used by stream of consciousness novelists. However,Virginia Woolf is a writer full of creativity and experimental spirit. This paper is to discuss the differences between interior monologue used in Virginia Woolf's stream of consciousness novels and that in the works of James Joyce,her contemporary stream of consciousness novel master.%内心独白是意识流小说家常用的一种技法.然而,弗吉尼亚·伍尔夫是一位极具创造性和创新精神的作家.因此,我们不难发现她意识流小说中的内心独白与和她同时代的詹姆斯·乔易斯意识流小说中的内心独白有很大不同.

    詹姆斯·乔伊斯和托马斯·曼在他们早期的文学生涯中都探索过艺术的本质及艺术与生活之间关系的文学命题。两位作家都处于现代社会这样一个混乱的时代,他们都把艺术放在与伦理相对立的位置,并企图把艺术从刻板和空虚的社会中拯救出来。但是相较而言,乔伊斯的艺术更加倾向于真理,他的艺术是和普遍真理相通的。而托马斯·曼则把艺术和美,特别是物理上的美联系一起。这种物理美在乔伊斯那里反而成了不正当的艺术。两个人在艺术观的不同可以从四个方面表现出,分别是艺术的本质,艺术与伦理,艺术与性,以及艺术的功能。通过四方面的对比可以挖掘出何为艺术以及如何解决艺术与生活之间的矛盾等命题。%James Joyce and Thomas Mann, in their early period of literary career, explore the nature of art and the relationship be-tween art and life. Both the writers, living in the modern chaotic world, position art in the opposition with ethics and try to save it from the rigidity and banality of society. But Joyce’s art lies more with truth, universal truth about human beings while Mann’s art associates with beauty, physical beauty which Joyce categorizes as improper art. In the comparison of their aesthetic views from four aspects-the nature of art, art and ethics, art and sexuality, the function of art, some truth about art and resolu-tion about the tension between art and life can be in some way revealed.

    Full Text Available A partir das contribuições da Teoria Crítica da Sociedade, de Theodor W. Adorno, o presente trabalho dedica-se a uma reflexão epistemológica e pedagógica sobre o tema do corpo e suas expressões, em especial no que se refere a dois de seus motivos originais: a questão da mimesis e a da rememoração da natureza no sujeito. Como resultado, destaca-se a posição dialética que o corpo ocupa no processo de esquecimento e denegação da natureza no sujeito, na medida em que, se a ideia de natureza e da memória do sujeito em relação a ela é expressão de uma subjetividade incerta e petrificada, por outro lado, no entanto, a partir da valorização do comportamento mimético no âmbito das práticas corporais, constitui-se a possibilidade de resistência aos imperativos da racionalidade instrumental.Based on the contributions from the Critical Theory of Society of Theodor W. Adorno, this paper makes an epistemological and pedagogical reflection on body and its expressions, specially on two original forces: mimesis and remembrance of nature in the subject. The body finds a dialectical place in the process of forgetting and refusing nature in the subject. If nature and the subject's memory are an expression of an uncertain and stoned subjectivity, mimetic behavior in corporal practices is however a possibility or resistance against instrumental rationality.

    In 1970, Dr. Theodore Haensch joined A.L. Schawlow's group in the physics department at Stanford, as a NATO postdoctoral researcher. Within a short time, he and his colleagues had invented a new, high-resolution, tunable laser system using expanded reflection gratings and an N2 laser for pumping the fluorescing dyes. This work resulted in a high-brightness, high-repetition-rate, narrow-band laser probe for conducting optical spectroscopy at extreme levels of precision. Dr. Haensch, and his many colleagues, particularly Prof. Arthur Schawlow and their students at Stanford, then proceeded to revolutionize optical spectroscopy and to train several generations of exceptional young scientists. At the same time, the Siegman, Harris, and Byer laboratories also at Stanford were making major contributions to the laser and quantum electronics fields. Several students from both groups joined the Livermore Laboratory. That early work, and that of others, encouraged teams at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory to design and build a series of increasing complicated, high-power multi-beam laser systems to investigate the potential of laser fusion. The National Ignition Facility, recently completed, is enabling investigations of matter at very high temperatures, T > 1 million K and densities 100-1000× normal. In addition, researchers are creating 1015 DT fusion neutrons per fusion experiment and generating new knowledge about unusual and important conditions of matter.

    2011-09-01

    According to many authors, the treatise on cancer written by Theodor Boveri in 1914 demonstrates astonishing foresight with respect to contemporary cancer research, in particular with respect to the genomic instability of tumors. In some recent publications, however, it has been claimed that not Boveri but primarily David von Hansemann deserves credit for these chromosomal theories of cancer origin. The claim seems to be unjustified because there are great differences, both in conception and in argumentation, between both opinions. In addition, it has been ignored that von Hansemann himself said that his views "were corrected and developed further by Boveri". In this paper two obviously unknown comments regarding Boveri's theory by von Hansemann are presented as examples. Furthermore, the paper points out that the pathologist von Hansemann was engaged in the formal genesis of tumors using descriptive methods. By contrast, the embryologist Boveri developed his hypotheses on the basis of the experimentally founded chromosome theory of inheritance in an attempt to explain the etiology or causal genesis of tumors. Thus, it can be concluded that Boveri developed the first genetic cancer theory in the history of medicine.

    THEBERA is a project funded by the European Union (EU), as an ERA-WIDE FP7 project, aiming to strengthen the Theodor Bilharz Research Institute (TBRI) capacities. A SWOT (strength/weakness/opportunities/threats) analysis of human, structural and organisational existing resources was performed in light of an extensive analysis of liver disease research and clinical management in Egypt, for a full understanding of TBRI needs. Strength and weakness features were identified and analysed, so were actions to be implemented and targets to be accomplished, to develop a business plan gathering the required critical mass (political, scientific, industrial, social) to select investment priorities, to sacrifice non-strategic areas of research, to promote national and international connections and industrial innovations, to update diagnostics and research device technologies and clinical management processes at European levels, to implement fundraising activities, to organise and properly assess training activities for young researchers, physicians, nurses, and technicians. Research institute self assessment is a priority need for sustainable capacity building and for future build-up of a competent health care research institute. Sustainable capacity building strategies must be designed on needs assessment, involving salient requirements: clear strategy, leverage of administrative capacities, industrial support and connections, systematised training programmes and enhancement of mobility of health care staff implemented within ill-defined boundaries and continuously re-evaluated with multiple feedback loops in order to build a complex, adaptable and reliable system based on value.

  14. The Affect of Dissident Language and Aesthetic Emancipation at the Margins: A Possible Dialogue between Theodor W. Adorno and Julia Kristeva

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Marcia Morgan

    2016-10-01

    Full Text Available In this paper I focus on the interaction between affect and language as articulated in the works of Theodor W. Adorno and Julia Kristeva, sometimes in inchoate and non-explicit ways. Language is always in transit, exile, and dispossession. All language is the language of another, or the other, and precisely because of this, it is the site of dissenting and conflicting affect. In this context, my paper traces a missed but necessary dialogue between Adorno and Kristeva. Adorno’s diagnosis of failed subjective inwardness, first presented in his book on Kierkegaard, was sustained throughout Adorno’s entire oeuvre, to the very end, in his posthumous 1969 Aesthetic Theory. I will explicate Adorno’s forced collapsing of subjective interiority into a negative space that opens up aesthetic emancipatory potential. In what follows I place Adorno’s negativity of subjective inwardness and the aesthetic potential after the fact of its destruction in dialogue with the writings of Kristeva, who has likewise diagnosed a subjective interiority of negativity but framed the latter in terms of the female, abjection and maternity. I conclude by placing Kristeva’s work in conversation with Adorno’s philosophy of the language of music, as one example of their shared framework for aesthetic emancipatory experience.

Si así fuera, ¿no implicaría una serie de problemas meta teóricos y contradicciones (como ser, cuestionar a la razón que sirve de fundamento a su pensamiento? El escrito se divide en dos partes. En la primera se abordan los motivos recurrentes de la crítica a la razón. En la segunda, se elabora una sucinta reconstrucción de dos interpretaciones contrapuestas de las obras mencionadas: por un lado, la de los miembros de la segunda generación de la Escuela de Frankfurt, en particular la de Jürgen Habermas y la de Albrecht Wellmer; por otro lado, la del comentarista español Juan José Sánchez. El aporte teórico de este artículo consiste en advertirle a este último autor que, en su justificado afán de distanciarse de la lectura habermasiana y de la postmoderna, termina debilitando el tono contradictorio y negativo de la filosofía conjunta de Adorno y Horkheimer.This paper aims to offer an analysis of the critique of reason developed by Max Horkheimer and Theodor W.

    Este ensaio procura compreender a relação entre turismo e desenvolvimento. Para tanto, se apóia em uma pesquisa bibliográfica e dá ênfase especial as ideias de Theodor Adorno e Max Horkheimer. Embora esses autores não tenham discutido a temática do turismo, mas, as suas ideias relativas à valorização da ciência positivista e sua influência para a legitimação dos dados e fatos econômicos que apóiam investimentos governamentais, podem contribuir com uma reflexão crítica. Destacam-se, também, as suas discussões sobre Indústria Cultural, onde a mercantilização de atividades culturais e a valorização do prazer contribuem para a acriticidade dos homens. Os países em desenvolvimento são impulsionados a direcionar suas estratégias para um crescimento sócio-econômico no sentido de dinamizar setores capazes de gerar emprego e estimular a melhoria da qualidade de vida da população. Este artigo pressupõe que o questionamento do potencial turístico enquanto vetor de desenvolvimento não deve ser negado, supõe, contudo, que as bases do modelo de desenvolvimento devem ser melhor analisadas para além da racionalidade instrumental, de forma a evitar uma percepção acrítica da atividade turística, como também, a adoção inapropriada de modelos de desenvolvimento que não atendem às necessidades da comunidade local.

Retoma-se, também, a discussão sobre a educação para a "emancipação", segundo o teórico, procurando demonstrar que o desafio apontado por ele, para que a Educação possa ser capaz de criar a base para a construção de uma sociedade livre da barbárie, continua atual. Transportada para os desafios que se colocam para a Educação, no atual cenário do neoliberalismo globalizado e de suas contradições, a apropriação do potencial da epistemologia de Adorno torna-se fundamental ao debate da relação entre a escola e a sociedade no mundo contemporâneo, evidenciando como o seu pensamento reforça posturas que, na contemporaneidade, tributam à escola um papel importante na construção de novas relações pedagógicas, orientadas para a produção de novas formas de cidadania, visando construir um mundo no qual se possa viver com justiça e dignidade.The text presents the sociological dimension of the thought of Theodor Adorno and his critical analyses pointed to the school and to the educational system, highlighting how it is up-to-date.

Transferred to the challenges that lay ahead for education, in the present scenery of the global new liberalism and its contradictions, the appropriation of the potential of the epistemology of Adorno becomes fundamental in the debate about the relation between the school and the society in the contemporary world, showing how his knowledge reinforces postures that, in the present, demand from the school an important role in the construction of new pedagogical relations

    A brief history of the Vienna School of Medicine is sketched out from its founding in the mid-18th century by Gerard van Swieten until the Anschluss in March 1938. The pioneering work of Ignaz Semmelweis on the causes and the prevention of puerperal fever is discussed. This is followed by ground-breaking innovations, particularly in abdominal surgery, by Theodor Billroth and by Robert Bárány's Nobel Prize winning work inter alia on defining the pathology and physiology of the human vestibular apparatus. The lives and work of these three outstanding medical practitioners are described, together with their successes and failures. Only Billroth's achievements were appreciated in Vienna during their lifetimes. Semmelweis' work was belittled during his lifetime and he died obscurely in a mental institution. Bárány had to immigrate to Sweden to achieve recognition.

    Using a hyperK\\"{a}hler rotation on complex structures of a Calabi-Yau 2-fold and rolling of an isotropic 2-submanifold in a symplectic 6-manifold, we construct, by gluing, a natural family of immersed Lagrangian deformations of a branched covering of a special Lagrangian 3-sphere in a Calabi-Yau 3-fold and study how they deviate from being deformable to a family of special Lagrangian deformations by examining in detail Joyce's criteria on this family. The result suggests a potential image-support rigidity of A-branes that wrap around a special Lagrangian 3-sphere in a Calabi-Yau 3-fold, which resembles a similar phenomenon for holomorphic curves that wrap around a rigid smooth rational curve in a Calabi-Yau 3-fold in Gromov-Witten theory.

    在一般学界的眼里,西奥多·德莱塞(Theodore Dreiser,1871-1945)是一位典型的美国自然主义小说家.本文撇开对他的已有评价,尝试从一个不同的视角对其小说(An Amereican Tragedy)进行比较深入的分析解读,主要探讨金钱如何作为一种劳动符号影响主人公克莱德进而通过对其现实动机与父母的理想的比较来界定他的金钱价值观.这么做旨在说明,德莱塞的这部作品从严格意义上讲算不上自然主义小说,而是一部更倾向于现实主义的文学作品.

    爱尔兰文学巨匠乔伊斯的《都柏林人》是对爱尔兰昏昏噩噩的群体精神文化现状的真实写照。乔伊斯在无意识的创作过程中深入地剖析了爱尔兰国民文化的劣根性,同时也对自己的精神和心理进行了解构与分析。《憾事一桩》中的主人公达菲先生就是乔伊斯无意识的化身,是乔伊斯力求拯救的业已陷入精神沦陷危机边缘的那部分自我。文章从分析心理学角度分析达菲先生的精神并建构达菲先生的心理原型,力求呈现乔伊斯在无意识的创作过程中的动态的心理图景。%James Joyce,the Irish literary giant,portrayed the paralyzed nature of the group culture and mentality of the Irish people in his masterpiece———The Dubliners. In his subconscious writing process,Joyce deeply dissects the depravity of the national culture of Ireland. Meanwhile,he also presents an in-depth and thorough analysis of his own psyche and mentality. Mr. Duffy in A Painful Case is the embodiment of Joyce’s subconsciousness,the part of ego that approached the fringe of spiritual paralysis,which he was so desperate to salvage. Within the purview of Jungˊs Analytic Psychology,the paper probes into Mr. Duffy’s psyche and reconstructs his psychological Archetype with an attempt to visualize the dynamic and subconscious mental picture in Joyce’s literary creation.

  11. Modifications of imaging spectroscopy methods for increases spatial and temporal consistency: A case study of change in leafy spurge distribution between 1999 and 2001 in Theodore Roosevelt National Park, North Dakota

    Science.gov (United States)

    Dudek, Kathleen Burke

    The noxious weed leafy spurge (Euphorbia esula L.) has spread throughout the northern Great Plains of North America since it was introduced in the early 1800s, and it is currently a significant management concern. Accurate, rapid location and repeatable measurements are critical for successful temporal monitoring of infestations. Imaging spectroscopy is well suited for identification of spurge; however, the development and dissemination of standardized hyperspectral mapping procedures that produce consistent multi-temporal maps has been absent. Airborne Visible/Infrared Imaging Spectrometer (AVIRIS) data, collected in 1999 and 2001 over Theodore Roosevelt National Park, North Dakota, were used to locate leafy spurge. Published image-processing methods were tested to determine the most successful for consistent maps. Best results were obtained using: (1) NDVI masking; (2) cross-track illumination correction; (3) image-derived spectral libraries; and (4) mixture-tuned matched filtering algorithm. Application of the algorithm was modified to standardize processing and eliminate threshold decisions; the image-derived library was refined to eliminate additional variability. Primary (spurge dominant), secondary (spurge non-dominant), abundance, and area-wide vegetation maps were produced. Map accuracies were analyzed with point, polygon, and grid reference sets, using confusion matrices and regression between field-measured and image-derived abundances. Accuracies were recalculated after applying a majority filter, and buffers ranging from 1-5 pixels wide around classified pixels, to accommodate poor reference-image alignment. Overall accuracy varied from 39% to 82%, however, regression analyses yielded r2 = 0.725, indicating a strong relationship between field and image-derived densities. Accuracy was sensitive to: (1) registration offsets between field and image locations; (2) modification of analytical methods; and (3) reference data quality. Sensor viewing angle

    2017-01-01

    Stoicheiosis Astronomike ("Elements of Astronomy") is a late Byzantine comprehensive introduction to Astronomy. It was written by an outstanding figure in Byzantine culture and politics, who served also as prime minister. This volume makes available for the first time a large part of its astronomical contents, offering the original text with an English translation, accompanied by an introduction and analysis. This book describes the celestial spheres, the rotation of the planets, and especially the apparent trajectory of the sun with its uniform and anomalous rotations, which are used to determine the length of the year. Metochites proposed a new starting date for the calendar (6th of October 1283) specifying the position of the sun on that date. The work revived the interest in studies of Ptolemaic astronomy as attested by numerous annotations in the margins of the manuscripts. Besides its astronomical content there are statements on the epistemological method and other issues elucidating the spirit of tha...

  19. Surgical triumvirate of Theodor Kocher, Harvey Cushing, and William Halsted.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Modlin, I M

    1998-01-01

    It is difficult to evaluate precisely the effects of one individual on an entire discipline such as surgery. Indeed, it is impossible to do so when such a discipline spans so vast a country as the United States of America. Nevertheless, as a mountain peak can be seen from afar, so may one perceive the influence of man of Kocher's stature. His connection with Halsted and especially Cushing provided a direct link between the grandeur of Kocher's achievements and their lineal translation to a generation of evolving American surgeons. Both individuals, by personal example and professional endeavor, transmitted the precepts of Kocher to the nascent surgical fellowship of America. Thus the icon of Swiss surgery, recognized by a Nobel laureate and esteemed by his European colleagues, became a profound influence on American surgery. The triumvirate of Kocher, Cushing, and Halsted may thus be acknowledged as of vital consequence to the establishment of American surgery during the twentieth century.

    2012-01-01

    Full Text Available A concepção de filosofia formulada por Adorno foi impulsionada principalmente pela sua reação crítica a sistemas com pretensões totalitárias: nazismo, stalinismo e a sociedade produtora de mercadorias. A filosofia representa um refúgio para a liberdade diante dessas estruturas: ela dá voz ao não-idêntico. A capacidade de subverter os ordenamentos conceituais e sociais é implícita ao próprio pensamento, que se articula na forma de constelações em devir. A aproximação da dialética com o materialismo, concebido enquanto primazia do objeto, fortalece a filosofia na sua potencialidade crítica, na sua proximidade com a realidade e com a liberdade. Resulta daí uma filosofia renovada, simultaneamente aberta e comprometida com a verdade. A proposta deste artigo é apresentar a interdependência desses conceitos e apontar para a relevância da concepção de filosofia que deles emerge

    Usually the diplomat Wilhelm von Humboldt (1767-1835) is regarded as the creator of German supremacy in academic, especially medical education. Actually this role was played by the "bureaucrat" Friedrich Althoff (1839-1909), who directed German education from 1882 to 1907.

    Wilhelm Reich's technical emphasis on the "systematic analysis of defenses" was controversial even before 1933. His main opponent in this field was Reik who expressed his criticism several times from 1932 to 1935. For Reik, the analytical process was essentially open, dependent on surprise. Fenichel, Reich's ally, defended a "scientific" approach, as opposed to "intuition", but later adopted a mediatory position.

    Full Text Available One of the new fields of sociology that is well developed during recent three decades is Emotional theory. Emotion is a process by which actors evaluate real or imaginary positions and interact toward them. In this field emotion is not against rationality, but it is a source of energy that facilitates the process of interaction. Theorizers of this field emphasize on the way of entering emotion in personal and structuration of interaction. There is another group who tries connecting this field to macro level of society. Sociology of emotion is one of the most diversified field of sociology, because the participating theorizers are from different disciplines. In this article we reviewed Turner's analytical theory, Kemper's power- status theory and Lawler's theory of social exchange. Then we proposed some weaknesses and strong points of this theory in researches related to Iranian society.

    Establishment of cottonwood trees is driven by flood-induced channel migration, which provides the new surfaces necessary for successful germination and survival. Along the Little Missouri River the largest floods typically result from snowmelt in March or April. Seed release occurs in early summer, and seedlings usually germinate in moist, open locations on point bars at relatively low elevations above the channel. Subsequent channel migration allows seedlings to mature by protecting them from scour in floods and ice jams. Management actions that decrease channel movement will reduce cottonwood reproduction.

    Blaser, Martin J

    2005-01-01

    Just as there have been 20th century changes in our "macroecology," including global warming, there have been alterations in our "microecology," involving the microbial populations that colonize the human body. Helicobacterpylori, an ancient inhabitant of the human stomach, has been disappearing over the course of the 20th century. As such, by comparing H. pylori+ and H. pylori- persons, the consequences of its colonization can be determined. The presence of H. pylori is associated with increased risk for development of gastric cancer and peptic ulceration, and with decreased risk for gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) and its sequelae, including esophageal adenocarcinoma. The disappearance of H. pylori (especially cag+ strains), possibly contributing to the risk of these esophageal diseases, may be an indicator for changing human microecology.

  2. Theodore E. Woodward Award: lactase persistence SNPs in African populations regulate promoter activity in intestinal cell culture.

    Sibley, Eric; Ahn, Jong Kun

    2011-01-01

    Lactase-phlorizin hydrolase, lactase, is the intestinal enzyme responsible for the digestion of the milk sugar lactose. The majority of the world's human population experiences a decline in expression of the lactase gene by late childhood (lactase non-persistence). Individuals with lactase persistence, however, continue to express high levels of the lactase gene throughout adulthood. Lactase persistence is a heritable autosomal dominant condition and has been strongly correlated with several single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) located ∼14 kb upstream of the lactase gene in different ethnic populations: -13910*T in Europeans and -13907*G, -13915*G, and -14010*C in several African populations. The coincidence of the four SNPs clustering within 100 bp strongly suggests that this region mediates the lactase non-persistence/persistence phenotype. Having previously characterized the European SNP, we aimed to determine whether the African SNPs similarly mediate a functional role in regulating the lactase promoter. Human intestinal Caco-2 cells were transfected with lactase SNP/promoter-reporter constructs and assayed for promoter activity. The -13907*G and -13915*G SNPs result in a significant enhancement of lactase promoter activity relative to the ancestral lactase non-persistence genotype. Such differential regulation by the SNPs is consistent with a causative role in the mechanism specifying the lactase persistence phenotype.

    Cancer is a disorder of the genome. The thyroid cancer genome is being decoded. Recent studies have identified a mutation or a genetic alteration in 95% of thyroid cancers. The National Cancer Institute initiated the Cancer Genome Atlas project in 2006 to catalogue genetic mutations associated with cancer, using genome sequencing and bioinformatics. The project has expanded to carry out genomic characterization and sequence analysis of thyroid cancer. The concept of risk stratification based on traditional parameters will soon vacate their role for clear molecular markers of non-invasive/focal, invasive/metastatic and systemic stages/phases of neoplastic disorder. A refined classification scheme based on genomics and its phenotypic expressions will accurately reflect the biologic differences between the different morphologic definitions we use today. Tumor differentiation/de-differentiation, and clinical behavior of an individual cancer will be defined by molecular markers, in addition to standard morpho-pathology. Empiricism in science of medicine and surgery has acquired a new method for testing the appropriate treatment for individual patients; that is molecular pathology, governed by genomics. The technology is present and rapidly evolving. The surgeons will determine the extent of interventions with molecular evidence and guidance. PMID:28117284

The project has expanded to carry out genomic characterization and sequence analysis of thyroid cancer. The concept of risk stratification based on traditional parameters will soon vacate their role for clear molecular markers of non-invasive/focal, invasive/metastatic and systemic stages/phases of neoplastic disorder. A refined classification scheme based on genomics and its phenotypic expressions will accurately reflect the biologic differences between the different morphologic definitions we use today. Tumor differentiation/de-differentiation, and clinical behavior of an individual cancer will be defined by molecular markers, in addition to standard morpho-pathology. Empiricism in science of medicine and surgery has acquired a new method for testing the appropriate treatment for individual patients; that is molecular pathology, governed by genomics. The technology is present and rapidly evolving. The surgeons will determine the extent of interventions with molecular evidence and guidance.

    The quest for finding the right interpretation of Quantum Mechanics (QM) is as old als QM and still has not ended, and may never end. The question what an interpretation of QM is has hardly ever been raised explicitly, let alone answered. We raise it and answer it. Then the quest for the right interpretation can continue self-consciously, for we then know exactly what we are after. We present a list of minimal requirements that something has to meet in order to qualify as an interpretation of QM. We also raise, as a side issue, the question how the discourse on the interpretation of QM relates to hermeneutics in Continental Philosophy.

    Full Text Available In this article I try to show the changing paradigm of romantic expressionism in late modernity. I concentrate on the category of text, which I describe using literature: Bolesław Leśmian’s tale The Adventures of Sindbad the Sailor and a fragment of James Joyce’s Ulysses, as well as theoretical discourses by Jacques Derrida and Jean-Luc Nancy. I am interested first and foremost in the problem of the arbitrary nature of the bond between heart and word, affect and language. I find this problem to be the core of the possibility of thinking about literary creativity, especially its inventive, poetical potention. I try to explain how affect and language meet in the category of textuality and how modern subjectivity can cope with its basic conflict, which lies in the demand of opening and closing itself to the affective experience of otherness.

    En el nuevo mundo la Leishmaniosis es transmitida por dípteros del género Lutzomyia frança. Este género presenta una amplia diversidad morfológica por lo que ha sido dividida en subgéneros, grupos y series de especies. Se ha propuesto que la reciente especiación de algunos grupos fue debida a cambios climáticos en el pasado, especialmente en el pleistoceno (hace 1.8 millones de años, los cuales sirvieron para aislar poblaciones coespecíficas en diferentes refugios durante períodos secos. El grupo verrucarum es uno de los agrupamientos subgenéricos en el que se incluyen 28 especies. Con base en la morfología de la genitalia de machos se ha subdividido este grupo en las series serrana, verrucarum y towsendi. De estas especies L. evansi se ha incriminado como vector alternativo de Leishmania (Leishmania infantum chagasi en un foco de Leishmaniosis visceral al norte de Colombia. Otras especies se han incriminado en la transmisión de Leishmania (Viannia, agente causante de Leishmaniosis cutánea.

    Debido a la gran controversia sobre la ubicación sistemática de muchos insectos de importancia médica, surgió un macroproyecto del cual hace parte este estudio y que tiene como propósito aportar al conocimiento sobre las relaciones filogenéticas entre especies del género Lutzomyia. Las especies del grupo verrucarum tienen un interés particular debido a las frecuentes dificultades en su determinación taxonómica basada en caracteres morfológicos. Este estudio tiene como objetivo particular realizar un análisis cladístico entre algunas especies alopátricas (distanciadas geográficamente presentes en Colombia, usando secuencias del gen que codifica para la unidad cuatro de la NADH deshidrogenasa mitocondrial, proteína que participa en la fosforilación oxidativa. Estas especies son: L. evansi (Nuñez-Tovar, L. ovallesi (Ortiz, L. spinicrassa (Osorno & Hoyos, L. nuneztovari (Ortiz y L. columbiana (Ristorcelli & Van Ty. El estudio incluye en el análisis secuencias previamente reportadas de L. longipalpis (del subgénero Lutzomyia franca, serie longipalpis y de insectos de otro género, Phlebotomus papatasi. Adicionalmente pretende buscar a través de análisis de polimorfismos en longitud de fragmentos de restricción (RFLP marcadores moleculares propios de especie, los cuales pueden ayudar en su determinación.

    En una primera etapa se estandarizaron las técnicas de preservación de especímenes, extracción de ADN, amplificación, purificación y digestión de la región 5’del gen ND4. A través de ellas se ha obtenido un fragmento de aproximadamente 680 pb para individuos de las especies de estudio y adicionalmente para L. longipalpis y Phlebotomus papatasi. Algunos de los productos amplificados se han secuenciado y dichas secuencias se han editado, alineado y sometido a un análisis filogenético usando el Software phillip 3.5 en el que se logró obtener un cladograma preliminar. Los ensayos de RFLP con las enzimas de restricción Dra I y Vsp I han revelado fragmentos que pueden ser marcadores moleculares diagnósticos de especies al tiempo que revelan polimorfismo intraespecífico para L. evansi y L. ovallesi. Sin embargo las conclusiones sobre su utilidad para estudiar estructura de poblaciones debe ser confirmada aumentando el número de muestras. El estudio se encuentra en la etapa de análisis de los datos y procesamiento de más especímenes para obtener un mayor número de secuencias y RFLP.

The university crises and reforms at the modern time were ruled by the accusations of perpetuating, in Higher Education institutions, outdated teachings based on the old medieval authorities (CHARLE; VERGER, 1996. These factors have led to the creation of international programs of evaluation. In the national plan, Brazil began its course on evaluation in the Programa de Avaliação das Universidades Brasileiras (PAIUB, implemented in 1993, and changed in 1996 into the Exame Nacional de Cursos (ENC – Provão and in April, 2004, into the Sistema Nacional de Avaliação do Ensino Superior (Sinaes. These modifications increase the problems that involve such a controversial subject: the assessment. The purpose of this research is to apprehend the academical evaluation of teachers of sequential courses, based on the theories: “Cultural Industry” and “Taboos on the profession of teaching” in which Adorn deals with the humanity treatment as an immediate presupposition of the survival. First, 400 questionnaires were sent to students of the sequential courses of a university and 227 were answered. The study enabled us to verify that in the academical community the evaluation system provides what is called barbarism, which is present in the effective sale of courses and closing of others that do not reach good classification. The evaluation system involves taboos that need to be better understood as a form of barbarism. In order to get rid of barbarism, the university has to get free from the taboos the students have when, in the implied sense of the evaluation instruments, they are assigned to making the evaluation under the pressure which reproduces the barbarism.   Normal 0 21 MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Tabela normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0cm 5.4pt 0cm 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0cm; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman";} A criação dos cursos seqüenciais é a mais recente inovação na reforma do ensino superior brasileiro.

Esses fatores vêm levando à criação de programas internacionais de avaliação. No plano nacional, o Brasil tem sua trajetória de avaliação iniciada no Programa de Avaliação das Universidades Brasileiras (PAIUB, implementado em 1993, que se transformou, em 1996, no Exame Nacional de Cursos (ENC-Provão e, em abril de 2004, no Sistema Nacional de Avaliação da Educação Superior (SINAES. Essas modificações aumentam os problemas que envolvem uma questão tão polêmica, a avaliação. Nesse sentido, esta pesquisa tem por objetivo apreender a avaliação do professor universitário de cursos seqüenciais sob a luz da teoria ‘A Indústria Cultural’ e ‘Tabus acerca do magistério’ no qual Adorno trata da desbarbarização da humanidade como pressuposto imediato da sobrevivência. Como metodologia, além da fundamentação teórica, foram aplicados 400 questionários e retornaram 227 respondidos pelos alunos dos cursos seqüenciais de uma universidade. O estudo permitiu evidenciar que na comunidade universitária o sistema de avaliação proporciona o que se pode chamar de barbárie, presente nas vendas de cursos e fechamento de outros que não conseguem boa classificação, não havendo mecanismo que considerem a demanda social. Para que a desbarbarização se objetive a universidade precisa libertar-se dos tabus que os alunos possuem quando, nas entrelinhas dos instrumentos de avaliação, são incumbidos de efetuar a avaliação sob cuja pressão se reproduz à barbárie.

    Currently, Hänsch is also working with the ATRAP Collaboration at CERN, which is studying hydrogen and antihydrogen atoms. If it were possible to measure precisely up to 14 or 15 digits, then it might be possible to see whether matter and antimatter are the same or if they differ in some unexpected way. This could explain why there is more matter than antimatter in the universe. To explore these questions, researchers have to look where no-one has ever looked before, and for that reason, Hänsch has a passion for precision.

    The newly emerging field of systems biology involves a judicious interplay between high-throughput 'wet' experimentation, computational modelling and technology development, coupled to the world of ideas and theory. This interplay involves iterative cycles, such that systems biology is not at all confined to hypothesis-dependent studies, with intelligent, principled, hypothesis-generating studies being of high importance and consequently very far from aimless fishing expeditions. I seek to illustrate each of these facets. Novel technology development in metabolomics can increase substantially the dynamic range and number of metabolites that one can detect, and these can be exploited as disease markers and in the consequent and principled generation of hypotheses that are consistent with the data and achieve this in a value-free manner. Much of classical biochemistry and signalling pathway analysis has concentrated on the analyses of changes in the concentrations of intermediates, with 'local' equations - such as that of Michaelis and Menten v=(Vmax x S)/(S+K m) - that describe individual steps being based solely on the instantaneous values of these concentrations. Recent work using single cells (that are not subject to the intellectually unsupportable averaging of the variable displayed by heterogeneous cells possessing nonlinear kinetics) has led to the recognition that some protein signalling pathways may encode their signals not (just) as concentrations (AM or amplitude-modulated in a radio analogy) but via changes in the dynamics of those concentrations (the signals are FM or frequency-modulated). This contributes in principle to a straightforward solution of the crosstalk problem, leads to a profound reassessment of how to understand the downstream effects of dynamic changes in the concentrations of elements in these pathways, and stresses the role of signal processing (and not merely the intermediates) in biological signalling. It is this signal processing that lies at the heart of understanding the languages of cells. The resolution of many of the modern and postgenomic problems of biochemistry requires the development of a myriad of new technologies (and maybe a new culture), and thus regular input from the physical sciences, engineering, mathematics and computer science. One solution, that we are adopting in the Manchester Interdisciplinary Biocentre (http://www.mib.ac.uk/) and the Manchester Centre for Integrative Systems Biology (http://www.mcisb.org/), is thus to colocate individuals with the necessary combinations of skills. Novel disciplines that require such an integrative approach continue to emerge. These include fields such as chemical genomics, synthetic biology, distributed computational environments for biological data and modelling, single cell diagnostics/bionanotechnology, and computational linguistics/text mining.

    Alloplastic materials are broadly used in modern surgery. Until the middle of the 20th century, metal materials and especially silver were used because of their antimicrobial properties. With the development of a new catalytic process for the production of high-density polyethylene and polypropylene materials, a new era of prosthesis was introduced. These polymers are integral part of our everyday operations surgery, especially in hernia repair. The famous surgeon Billroth mentioned to his pupil Czerny in 1878: "If we could artificially produce tissues of the density and toughness of fascia and tendon, the secret of the radical cure of hernia would be discovered". The polypropylene developed by Karl Ziegler gave the surgeon a material for daily practice, which in its properties (nearly) achieved Billroth's initial vision. In 1963 the Nobel Prize for Chemistry was awarded to Karl Ziegler and Giulio Natta in Stockholm. Furthermore, August 11, 2013 will be the 40th anniversary of Karl Ziegler's death. This manuscript honors both days.

    Full Text Available Numerical analyses (correspondence analysis, ascending hierarchical classification, cladistic approach were applied to the morphological characters of the adults of the genus Phlebotomus Rondani & Berté 1840. They confirm the reliability of the classic classifications, and also redefine the taxonomic and phylogenetic position of certain taxa. Thus, Spelaeophlebotomus Theodor 1948, Idiophlebotomus Quate & Fairchild 1961 and Australophlebotomus Theodor 1948 deserve generic rank. Among the vectors of leishmaniasis, the subgenus Phlebotomus Rondani & Berté 1840 is probably ancient. The results attribute an intermediate taxonomic and phylogenetic position to the taxa Euphlebotomus Theodor 1948 and Anaphlebotomus Theodor 1948, and reveal the probable artificial nature of the latter. The comparatively large numbers of species of subgenera Paraphlebotomus Theodor 1948, Synphlebotomus Theodor 1948 and, above all, Larroussius Nitzulescu 1931 and Adlerius Nitzulescu 1931, suggest that they are relatively recent. The development of adult morphological characters, the validity of their use in taxonomy and proposals for further studies are discussed.

    Full Text Available Objective – To assess whether infobutton links that direct users to specific content topics (‚topic links‛ are more effective in answering clinical questions than links that direct users to general overview content (‚nonspecific links‛.Design – Randomized control trial.Setting – Intermountain Healthcare, an integrated system of 21 hospitals and over 120 outpatient clinics located in Utah and southeastern Idaho.Subjects – Ninety clinicians and 3,729 infobutton sessions.Methods – To ensure comparable group composition, subjects were paired and randomly allocated to the study groups. Clinicians in the intervention group had access to topic links, while those in the control group had access to nonspecific links. All subjects at Intermountain Healthcare use a Web-based electronic medical record system (EMR called HELP2 Clinical Desktop with integrated infobutton links. An Infobutton Manager application defines the content topics and resources; in this case, Micromedex® (Thomson Healthcare, Englewood, CO provided access to the topic links. The medication order entry module, the most popular of the outpatient modules, was selected to test the two configurations of infobuttons. A focus group of seven HELP2 users aided the researchers in determining the most salient topics to be displayed as a part of the intervention group's user-interface. The study measured infobutton session duration, or time spent seeking information, the number of infobutton sessions conducted, and the outcome and impact of the information seeking. A post-session questionnaire displayed randomly in 30% of sessions measured outcome and impact. The study was conducted between May and November, 2007. This project was funded in part by the National Library of Medicine.Main Results – Subjects in the intervention group spent 17.4% less time seeking information than those in the control group (35.5 seconds vs. 43 seconds, p = 0.008. The intervention group used infobuttons 20.5% more often (22 sessions vs. 17.5 sessions, p = 0.21 than those in the control group, a difference that was not statistically significant. Twenty-five subjects answered the post-session survey at least once for a total of 115 (9.9% responses out of 1,161 possible sessions. The information seeking success rate was equally high in both groups (87.2% intervention vs. 89.4% control, p = .099. Subjects reported high positive clinical impact (i.e., decision enhancement or learning in 62% of successful sessions. Subjects conveyed a moderate or high level of frustration in 80% of responses associated with unsuccessful sessions.Conclusion – Topic links provide a slight advantage in the clinical decision-making process by reducing the amount of time spent searching. But while the session length difference between the control and intervention groups is statistically significant, it is less clear whether the difference is clinically meaningful. As previous studies have indicated, infobuttons are able to answer clinical medication questions with a high success rate. It is unclear whether topic links have a clinically significant impact, or rather, whether they are more effective than nonspecific links. The authors believe that the study results ‚should generalize to high-frequency, medication-related infobutton users in other institutions‛ (758.

    Full Text Available Recently – particularly in the last few year – critics have highlighted the importance of cinema in James Joyce's works. We can think, for instance, of the evocative role of cinematographic techniques; in addition , being a cinephile, Joyce proves to know a wide variety of films. Finnegans Wake has not been much explored from this perspective. This article aims to highlight the presence of cinema and films (but also directors and actors in Joyce's last novel: this is a temporary and hypothetical catalogue, due to Finnegans Wake's multiple allusions and to its requiring an infinite patience and a qualified collaboration of all its readers.

  1. "Their pineal glands aglow": Theosophical physiology in Ulysses.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Morrisson, Mark S

    2008-01-01

    This article argues that Joyce's engagements with the Theosophy of the Dublin literary world amount to more than simple parody. In Ulysses, Joyce portrays Theosophy's efforts to offer an alternative understanding of physiology to that of the medical establishment as a form of boundary work, an adaptation of the discourse of modern medical research to fashion modern mysticism as a science. Ultimately, Joyce rejects Theosophical physiology and its evolutionary scientism because it provides an unsatisfactory rhetorical body, a failed attempt to renegotiate the boundaries between scientific materialism and spirituality in the awkward modernity of Dublin in 1904.

    ... sense. A contemporary of Hermann Hesse, James Joyce made particular use of the epiphany as a poetic device in his early work. Striking examples appear in A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man (1916) and in the prose poems he wrote to demonstrate the momentary illumination of the thoughts and commonplace objects that exalted him. There is no direct evidence that Hermann Hesse knew Joyce, although Joyce lived for a time and died (in 1941) in Zurich, a city quite familiar to Hesse and a primary location in...

  12. Menstruation in Ulysses.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Mullin, Katherine

    2008-01-01

    This article investigates James Joyce's fascination with a wide variety of medical texts, sexual folklores, religious beliefs, and persistent superstitions about menstruation. That fascination finds its way into Ulysses, which draws upon a number of intertexts to inform a curiosity about the female body most strikingly articulated by Bloom, Molly, and Gerty MacDowell. These intertexts are not simply imported into the novel but are dismantled and interrogated, as Joyce exposes, rather than endorses, clichés of essential femininity.

  13. 否定的辩证法与非同一性的哲学地位——阿多诺《否定的辩证法》研究%Negative Dialectics and the Philosophical Status of Non-identity——Studies on Negative Dialectics by Theodor Adorno

    Institute of Scientific and Technical Information of China (English)

    孙承叔

    2012-01-01

    《否定的辩证法》是阿多诺最主要的哲学著作.他认为,黑格尔辩证法的基础是同一性,同一性通过扬弃非同一性而达到新的同一,因而其“否定之否定”的实质是肯定;同一性构成了黑格尔辩证法的本体论基础,这种同一性哲学在当代构成了资本统治世界的哲学基础.在阿多诺看来,事物的否定是彻底的否定,这种否定的力量在于非同一性;由于非同一性对同一性的否定是彻底的,因而辩证运动法则不是“肯定,否定,否定之否定”,而是“否定,否定,再否定”.由此,他对一切形而上学采取了批判态度.由于阿多诺彻底地否定了同一性在历史发展中的地位和作用,因而他也是一位最极端的哲学家.辩证地分析阿多诺思想,对于坚持和发展马克思的辩证方法具有重大的理论及实践意义.

    2011-01-01

    霍克海默、阿多诺启蒙理性批判,抓住了人类主体体现自身本性最重要的支点--理性,对理性自身进行了批判.启蒙理性批判,不仅把工具理性的合理性概念用于解释资本主义社会的物化,而且用于解释并证明,在人类早期神话中理性的异化就已初露端倪,从而揭示了理性异化的生存论根源.启蒙理性批判发展为法兰克福学派独具特色的工具理性批判.启蒙理性批判,继承了卢卡奇关于资本主义物化与科学技术合理化批判,拓宽了西方马克思主义理论的研究视野,但也不可避免地带来了自身的理论困境.

    音乐从远古就一直有着明确的社会目的,发挥出重要的政治作用,随着近代民主的兴起,音乐也开始追求自主性,自律与他律成为人们理解音乐的分水岭.阿多诺研究发现,音乐的音响素材就是历史的积淀,作曲家自由地表达内心情感也是一种自律,现代新音乐表现出自律与他律的辩证法.

The quaestor Theoktistos was among the leading officials who took part in the conspiracy of the logothete Nicephorus against the empress Irene (802. He was identical with the magister Theoktistos who, as a supreme member of the Senate, received in 808 the letter No. 24 by Theodore the Studite. With this letter Theodore hoped that he could persuade magister Theoktistos to intervene to the emperor Nicephorus I, in order to avoid banishment. The magister, however, did not play a prominent role under the reign of Nicephorus and Theodore was forced to abandon the City. During the brief reign of Michael I, where we can observe the weakening of the imperial institution and the simultaneous uprise of the senatorial power as well as the rise of the fanatic monks (the monastery of Studion experienced a significant prosperity at that time magister Theoktistos and Theodore the Studite had then powerfully participated in political life and had played a crucial role in it.

  13. “It was that chalice he broke…”: James Joyce’s Dissatisfaction with Religion in His Short Story, The Sisters

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Ali Gunes

    2013-06-01

    Full Text Available This paper examines James Joyce’s dissatisfaction and frustration with the established religion and the Catholic Church in this earliest short story The Sisters. In so doing, the paper focuses upon two strategies or two conditions used by Joyce in the story to represent his relentlessness with the church and the priesthood. One of them is his use of “pederasty” between the priest and young children, by which Joyce disgraces the image of the priesthood and the church. The second one is the “broken” image of the “chalice” as an important symbol. By means of these two strategies, Joyce not only deconstructs the trustworthy image of the church and the priesthood but also becomes able to create a free space outside the influence of the border of the church for his artistic vocation.

    The Dubliners is a famous novel by the eminent Irish novelist James Joyce. This book collection begins with new-born life and ends with death. The unity of form and content symbolizes the life process of a human being—from birth to death, there⁃fore we can say that Dubliners is the image of a human being. In this collection, Joyce employs several kinds of symbolic method and symbols play a very important role in the implied meanings of these short stories.

    2013-01-01

    Let X be the total space of the canonical bundle of P^2. We study the generalized Donaldson-Thomas invariants, defined in the work of Joyce-Song, of the moduli spaces of the 2-dimensional Gieseker semistable sheaves on X with first Chern class equal to k times the class of the zero section of X. When k=1, 2 or 3, and semistability implies stability, we express the invariants in terms of known modular forms. We prove a combinatorial formula for the invariants when k=2 in the presence of the strictly semistable sheaves, and verify the BPS integrality conjecture of Joyce-Song in some cases.

  7. James Joyce’s Home Rule Comet, Elvis Costello’s Anglo-Irish Agreement

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Dermot Kelly

    2007-03-01

    Full Text Available It is a truism that Anglo-Irish relations did not progress in the eighty odd years between Joyce’s Trieste lectures and articles and Elvis Costello’s King of America album. If anything they regressed. As Declan Kiberd and others have noted, Joyce foresaw the partitioning of Ireland and, as Greil Marcus has shown, the dark melodies of Costello’s 1986 album are an acrid response to Thatcherism. Tracks like “Sleep of the Just” and “Little Palaces” are threnodies of diaspora. Of course Joyce was prophetic and my reading of Ulysses enables me to fill in the backstory of Marcus’s visceral lines about “Little Palaces” in his 1986 Artforum review: for instance, Bloom’s speech from the dock when he is accused of assaulting the serving girl Mary Driscoll actually reveals the unhappiness of this immigrant’s son. My paper traces continuities of Irish dispossession from Joyce’s “Ireland, Island of Saints and Sages” lecture to Costello’s “Little Palaces” on the one hand and from the Trieste lecture on Mangan to “Sleep of the Just” on the other. I conclude with reflections on Irish absurdism and the seachange in Joyce studies occasioned by the work of critics like Seamus Deane who foreshadowed the Northern Ireland peace process with essays like “Joyce and Nationalism” (1982.

  17. Introduction to Virtual Knot Theory

    CERN Document Server

    Kauffman, Louis H

    2011-01-01

    This paper is an introduction to virtual knot theory and an exposition of new ideas and constructions, including the parity bracket polynomial, the arrow polynomial, the parity arrow polynomial and categorifications of the arrow polynomial. The paper is relatively self-contained and it describes virtual knot theory both combinatorially and in terms of the knot theory in thickened surfaces. The arrow polynomial (of Dye and Kauffman) is a natural generalization of the Jones polynomial, obtained by using the oriented structure of diagrams in the state sum. The paper discusses uses of parity pioneered by Vassily Manturov and uses his parity bracket polynomial to give a counterexample to a conjecture of Fenn, Kauffman and Manturov. The paper gives an exposition of the categorification of the arrow polynomial due to Dye, Kauffman and Manturov and it gives one example (from many found by Aaron Kaestner) of a pair of virtual knots that are not distinguished by Khovanov homology (mod 2), or by the arrow polynomial, bu...
