  1. [A non-classical approach to medical practices: Michel Foucault and Actor-Network Theory].

    Science.gov (United States)

    Bińczyk, E

    2001-01-01

    The text presents an analysis of medical practices stemming from two sources: Michel Foucault's conception and the research of Annemarie Mol and John Law, representatives of a trend known as Actor-Network Theory. Both approaches reveal significant theoretical kinship: they can be successfully consigned to the framework of non-classical sociology of science. I initially refer to the cited conceptions as a version of non-classical sociology of medicine. The identity of non-classical sociology of medicine hinges on the fact that it undermines the possibility of objective definitions of disease, health and body. These are rather approached as variable social and historical phenomena, co-constituted by medical practices. To both Foucault and Mol the main object of interest was not medicine as such, but rather the network of medical practices. Mol and Law sketch a new theoretical perspective for the analysis of medical practices. They attempt to go beyond the dichotomous scheme of thinking about the human body as an object of medical research and the subject of private experience. Research on patients suffering blood-sugar deficiency provide the empirical background for the thesis of Actor-Network Theory representatives. Michel Foucault's conceptions are extremely critical of medical practices. The French researcher describes the processes of 'medicalising' Western society as the emergence of a new type of power. He attempts to sensitise the reader to the ethical dimension of the processes of medicalising society.

    Michel joined CERN early 1979. He started his career in the “Experimental Physics” Division "BCDMS (N4) Muon experiment" and later continued with software support to the GEM project with Emilio Pagiola. He joined the IT Department in 2005 and participated in the implementation of the digital version of PrintShop. Michel is one of the world experts in TeX and LaTex (programming languages ​​for text layout) and is the author of several books on the subject.   But at CERN, it is foremost through the Staff Association that we know Michel who successively served as Vice President, secretary and member of the Executive Committee, and since January 2011 and until December 2015, as President of the Staff Association.

    Full Text Available The writers whose real vocation was not music left significant traces in the history of Serbian music critics and essayism of the late 19th century and the first half of the 20th century. Numerous authors, literary historians theoreticians and critics, jurists and theatre historians, wrote successfully on music in Serbian daily newspapers, literary and other magazines, until the Second World War. This study is devoted to Gustav Michel (1868 - 1926, one of the music amateurs who ought to be remembered in the history of Serbian music critics. Gustav Michel was a pharmacist by vocation. He ran a private pharmacy in Belgrade all his life. But he was a musician as well. He played the viola in the second (in chronological order of foundation Serbian String Quartet. The ensemble mostly consisted of amateurs, and it performed standard pieces of chamber music (W. A. Mozart L. v. Beethoven, F. Schubert, F. Mendelsohn-Bartholdy, A. Dvořžak. These musicians had performed public concerts in Belgrade since 1900 up until Michel’s death. Belgrade music critics prised the performances of this string ensemble highly. Gustav Michel was also a music critic. Until now only seven articles, published by this author between 1894 and 1903, in Order (Red, Folk Newspaper (Narodne novine and Serbian Literary Magazine (Srpski književni glasnik have been found. Michel’s preserved articles unambiguously prove that their author had a solid knowledge of music theory and history, the knowledge that exceeded amateurism. Nevertheless, Michel did not burden his first critics with expert language of musicology. Later on, in Serbian Literary Magazine, the magazine which left enough room for music, Michel penetrated more into musical terminology, thus educating slowly forming Serbian concert-going public. The analysis of Michel’s texts showed that he was not, in contrast to the majority of professional music critics, an opponent of virtuosity. Gentle and liberal, he did not

    Full Text Available Do we have to drag in the thought of Michel Foucault to show the political (and not neutral, partial and local (and not universal and non-historic, active (and not merely transmissive face of science communication? Do we need the work of the controversial French intellectual to dispute the anxious search – almost a quest like that for the Holy Grail – for the “best practices” in the dissemination of scientific culture? If we read over the pages that Foucault dedicated to words and things, to the archaeology and genealogy of knowledge, to biopolitics, we have few doubts. Two elements, on the one hand the central nature of discourse and “regimes of truth”, on the other the concept of biopower (a “power over bodies”, enable us to reflect both on the important specific features of modern science in comparison with other forms of production and organisation of knowledge, and on the central role of its communication.

  9. Michel Psellos et Antioche

    2013-01-01

    Full Text Available The great fortress of Antioch, pillar of the Byzantine defense in Syria in the 11th century, was more integrated into the Byzantine Empire than has sometimes been claimed. It can be shown by the letters of the very Constantinopolitan Psellos. He corresponded with several patriarchs of Antioch, who themselves were careful not to cut their ties with the Byzantine capital. Psellos wrote more than once to Aimilianos, which is actually the name of a previously known family. Patriarch Aimilianos probably governed the Church of Antioch longer than we thought. Psellos loved to keep in touch with senior military officers, some of them being of imperial blood or related to the imperial family, such as Michel Kontostephanos, a nephew of Isaac Comnenos, or the caesar John, brother of Constantine Doukas. They were for a time stationed in Antioch or in the region. He also wrote to Nicephoros Botaneiates, who was praised during an embassy of the emir of Aleppo at Constantinople. He corresponded with Nicéphoritzes, his former colleague, who was twice duke of Antioch. There is no doubt that the elite of the capital was interested and concerned by the situation in Antioch.

    Michel Goossens Already at the beginning of 1955, just a few months after the creation of CERN, the members of the Organization's staff who then numbered less than 200, realized that they had to organize themselves into a corporate body to ensure a formal representation with Management and Member States. The Staff Association was born. As the 27th President of the Staff Association since its inception 60 years ago my task is highly interesting and rewarding, with plenty of responsibility, yet not always simple. Indeed, chosen by one’s peers as primus inter pares, the president is like the conductor of an orchestra, who must first convince his musicians to study the score together, before playing it in harmony. Of course, in my position I can rely on the solid foundations laid by my 26 predecessors, as well as the enthusiasm, loyalty, continuous efforts and perseverance of a core of dedicated collaborators, the elected delegates to the Staff Council.

    Hodges, Brian D; Martimianakis, Maria A; McNaughton, Nancy; Whitehead, Cynthia

    2014-06-01

    There have been repeated calls for the greater use of conceptual frameworks and of theory in medical education. Although it is familiar to few medical educators, Michel Foucault's work is a helpful theoretical and methodological source. This article explores what it means to use a 'Foucauldian approach', presents a sample of Foucault's historical-genealogical studies that are relevant to medical education, and introduces the work of four researchers currently undertaking Foucauldian-inspired medical education research. Although they are not without controversy, Foucauldian approaches are employed by an increasing number of scholars and are helpful in shedding light on what it is possible to think, say and be in medical education. Our hope in sharing this Foucauldian work and perspective is that we might stimulate a dialogue that is forward-looking and optimistic about the possibilities for change in medical education. © 2014 John Wiley & Sons Ltd.

  17. Michel Foucault and Francophone geography.

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Juliet Fall

    2005-09-01

    Full Text Available L’enthousiasme pour la pensée et les écrits de Michel Foucault parmi les géographes anglophones s’oppose au manque certain d’enthousiasme, voir de déni total, parmi leurs collègues francophones. Alors que Foucault est cité très largement dans la littérature contemporaine anglophone au sein des sciences sociales, il demeure marginal pour la grande majorité des géographes travaillant et publiant en français. Malgré l’entrevue de Foucault publiée dans la revue Hérodote en 1976 qui paraissait jeter un pont entre les disciplines, les géographes francophones ont peu lu et peu utilisé ses propositions pour les sciences sociales et politiques. De plus, comme les approches politiques en géographie ont eu relativement peu d’écho pour de multiples raisons, les rares travaux existants comme le livre Espace et pouvoir (1978 de Paul Claval ou La géographie ça sert, d’abord, à faire la guerre (1976 de Yves Lacoste ne sont pas influencés par les apports de Foucault. Cet article se propose de faire état de la situation par une revue et un examen de la littérature existante, complétée par des entretiens de géographes contemporains. Les œuvres choisies reflètent les rares utilisations explicites de Foucault par des géographes francophones. L’accent est mis plus particulièrement sur Pour une géographie du pouvoir , écrit en 1980 par Claude Raffestin, ainsi que sur ses articles plus tardifs sur le territoire et la territorialité. L’analyse propose que cet essai d’adapter un certain nombre des propositions de Foucault au contexte de la géographie a été écarté et ignoré, malgré son grand intérêt, pour un certain nombre de raisons institutionnelles, conceptuelles et personnelles. Suivant la piste de Foucault dans une approche tant épistémologique que sociologique, l’article examine d’autres apports de géographes fréquentant des lieux éloignés des luttes de pouvoir du monde académique fran

    We have learned with great sorrow of the passing away, on 11 May, of Michele Ferro-Luzzi, an engineer well-known to many physicists working at CERN from the late 1960s to the early 2000s.   Michele was born in Rome in 1938. He attended primary and secondary schools in Asmara (Eritrea), where his family had moved to in 1939, and then he went to the University of Rome where he obtained a "laurea" in electronic engineering in 1962. After completing his military service he was hired by CERN, in 1965, in the applied physics group, created by the Nuclear Physics (NP) Division Leader, Peter Preiswerk, to support physics teams in the design and construction of detectors, which were becoming more and more complex at that time. Michele’s primary interest was the design of particle beams. He became an expert in beam optics and in all kinds of beam components.

  16. Michel Lepeletier and the common education

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Narciso DE GABRIEL FERNÁNDEZ

    2013-11-01

    Full Text Available This work contains the analyses of the National Education Plan drawn up by Michel Lepeletier and presented to the Convention by Robespierre on Julay 13th, 1793, seeking to place it within the educational coordinates of the French Revolution. Its most characteristic feature was the proposal of the creation of institutions where all children would receive a common education on a full-board basis, paid for by the Republic. Lepeletier's proposals gave rise to an intense discussion amongst deputies such as Grégoire, Bourdon, Lequino, Fourcroy and Thibaudeau, as well as Robespierre and Danton. The ideas producing the greatest polemic were: the obligatory nature of common education, its financing, the confinement of children in «houses of equality » and the Spartan inspiration behind the projet.

  17. Michel Houellebecq and the International Sexual Economy

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Douglas Morrey

    2004-01-01

    Full Text Available This paper explores the notion of an ‘international sexual economy’ in the work of the French writer Michel Houellebecq, and particularly his latest novel, Plateforme (2001. Houellebecq suggests that, since westerners no longer have the time or the inclination to sleep with each other, and since those in the third world have nothing to sell but their bodies, the exchange of cash for sex on a truly international scale is likely to represent the most lucrative sector of the global economy in the coming century. Whilst acknowledging the objections to this idea, the paper shows how it is based in a serious analysis of global capitalism which has something in common with the theoretical work of Jean-François Lyotard, in terms of both the postmodern and the libidinal economies. The paper further suggests that the virulent anti-psychologism of Houellebecq’s often brutal worldview implies a (largely undeclared kinship with Friedrich Nietzsche. Finally, it offers an analysis of the ironic narrative strategies in Plateforme that are interpreted as the consequence of trying to criticize the cultural economy without being able to position oneself outside it.

    The Michel parameters of the leptonic tau decays are measured using the OPAL detector at LEP. The Michel parameters are extracted from the energy spectra of the charged decay leptons and from their energy-energy correlations. A new method involving a global likelihood fit of Monte Carlo generated events with complete detector simulation and background treatment has been applied to the data recorded at center-of-mass energies close to sqrt(s) = M(Z) corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 155 pb-1 during the years 1990 to 1995. If e-mu universality is assumed and inferring the tau polarization from neutral current data, the measured Michel parameters are extracted. Limits on non-standard coupling constants and on the masses of new gauge bosons are obtained. The results are in agreement with the V-A prediction of the Standard Model.

O que nos leva a retomar, a partir de novos referenciais teóricos, a discussão sobre o potencial revolucionário ainda possível da atualidade.Not much studied; the last stage of Michel Foucault's thought brings important contributions to the ethic and politic debate of our time, especially because it emphasizes the roll of the individual and of collectivities in the struggles for the transformation of the actual power structures. The way the struggles for resistance are, and their importance in the framework of the last Foucault reveal a political dimension that before was unsuspected in his work. This dimension, more than the analytic of power, grants for the small and multiple movements of contestation an important and decisive roll for the future of the socio-political life, away from the scheduled frame of the political parties established and from the way of action instituted. This makes us retake, from new theoretical references, the discussion about the revolutionary potential still possible nowadays.

  8. Quasi-normal acoustic oscillations in the Michel flow

    CERN Document Server

    Chaverra, Eliana; Sarbach, Olivier

    2015-01-01

    We study spherical and nonspherical linear acoustic perturbations of the Michel flow, which describes the steady radial accretion of a perfect fluid into a nonrotating black hole. The dynamics of such perturbations are governed by a scalar wave equation on an effective curved background geometry determined by the acoustic metric, which is constructed from the spacetime metric and the particle density and four-velocity of the fluid. For the problem under consideration in this article the acoustic metric has the same qualitative features as an asymptotically flat, static and spherically symmetric black hole, and thus it represents a natural astrophysical analogue black hole. As for the case of a scalar field propagating on a Schwarzschild background, we show that acoustic perturbations of the Michel flow exhibit quasi-normal oscillations. Based on a new numerical method for determining the solutions of the radial mode equation, we compute the associated frequencies and analyze their dependency on the radii of t...

  9. An outline of ethics on the work of Michel Foucault

    Christensen, Gerd

    An outline of ethics on the work of Michel Foucault The French philosopher Michel Foucault is well known for his critical thinking and for his genealogies of the human subject. In these analyzes power and knowledge (power-knowledge) plays a decisive role. For Foucault power-knowledge is the very...... foundation of the establishment of the norms and thus for normalization and subjectification. While Foucault’s project was to examine the foundation of the norms, he himself tried to avoid being explicitly normative. This stance has led to criticism among others from the Germen philosopher Jürgen Habermas...... (Kelly (edt.) 1994). Nevertheless, Foucault ended his academic career discussing ethics in the form of ethos (Foucault 1994). In this form his ethical project approaches an aesthetic project in the form of the individual’s self-creation. In my presentation I will introduce Foucault’s concept of ethos...

Very important for this objective is the use of techne tou biou (technology of self). I try to demonstrate that: this new way of practicing philoso...

    Full Text Available The work of Michel Foucault has been read from a feminist point of view in different ways. Feminist readers of Foucault have different opinions on the relevance and usefulness of Foucault’s concepts and analyses. We argue that the dialogue between both positions has been complex but extremely interesting, both for feminist practices and for any analytics of power. In this paper we discuss some of the basic elements of agreement and disagreement that feminist authors have showed with Foucault. We finally argue that reading Foucault’s work taking into account its feminist critique may be very useful in developing a deeper analysis of power relations

  19. [Michel Foucault and the persistence of psychiatric power].

    Science.gov (United States)

    Caponi, Sandra

    2009-01-01

    This article aims studying the course held by Michel Foucault at the Collège de France in 1973-1974. The records of this course were published in 2003 under the name ' Psychiatric power' . The objective was to compare the different ways in which Foucault analyzes the question of madness in ' Psychiatric power' and in ' History of Madness in the Classical Age' (1961). It is a comparative study about the different ways of analyzing madness developed by Michel Foucault during the archeological and genealogic periods of his work. The absence of the body; binary diagnosis; the description of the surface of symptoms; the classification of diseases more similar to the botanical classification than to pathology; the process of cure directly linked to restitution of behaviors and moral values; as well as the over-power of the psychiatrist, seem to speak about the persistence of an old model of power, a pre-modern and pre-capitalist model, a residue of the old sovereign power.

  1. Symmetries in nature the scientific heritage of Louis Michel

    CERN Document Server

    Todorov, Ivan; Zhilinskii, Boris

    2014-01-01

    Reflecting the oeuvre of “a man of two cultures: the culture of pure mathematics and the culture of theoretical physics” (in the words of his long time friend and co-author, Kameshwar Wali), this volume is centred around the notion of symmetry and its breaking. Starting with particle physics, the content proceeds to symmetries of matter, defects, and crystals. The mathematics of group extensions, non-linear group action, critical orbits and phase transitions is developed along the way. The symmetry principles and general mathematical tools provide unity in the treatment of different topics. The papers and lecture notes are preceded by a lively biography of Louis Michel and a commentary that relates his selected works both to the physics of his time and to contemporary trends. This book should be of interest to theoretical physicists, chemists, applied mathematicians and historians of science, and is accessible to graduate (and advanced undergraduate) students.

As a contemporary intellectual, Foucault’s thought has a unique style of postmodernism. His thought had gone beyond traditional critical theory whose trying to disclose the relation of power and economic behind the ideology of media. Foucault’s thought had given new perspective in understanding how the media produce truth under tightly control process into something that seems normal. With the assumption of media has the power to create mass culture, which has to be studied critically by media literacy approach, Foucault’s thought had given new space of discursive.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Simpson, Richard B

    2017-10-01

    Michel de M'Uzan describes a way to think about identity in which two distinct sources of our sense of identity must be considered. His innovation is the concept of the vital-identital, which he suggests is equally foundational with the sense of identity derived from the early human environment. The term endogenous identity is used to unify under one heading the ideas that de M'Uzan employs to build his concept of vital-identital. The author summarizes de M'Uzan's earlier work, elaborates on his more recent ideas, and illustrates the use of de M'Uzan's ideas with a cultural and a clinical example. © 2017 The Psychoanalytic Quarterly, Inc.

  8. Introduction to Louis Michel's lattice geometry through group action

    CERN Document Server

    Zhilinskii, Boris

    2015-01-01

    Group action analysis developed and applied mainly by Louis Michel to the study of N-dimensional periodic lattices is the central subject of the book. Different basic mathematical tools currently used for the description of lattice geometry are introduced and illustrated through applications to crystal structures in two- and three-dimensional space, to abstract multi-dimensional lattices and to lattices associated with integrable dynamical systems. Starting from general Delone sets the authors turn to different symmetry and topological classifications including explicit construction of orbifolds for two- and three-dimensional point and space groups. Voronoï and Delone cells together with positive quadratic forms and lattice description by root systems are introduced to demonstrate alternative approaches to lattice geometry study. Zonotopes and zonohedral families of 2-, 3-, 4-, 5-dimensional lattices are explicitly visualized using graph theory approach. Along with crystallographic applications, qualitative ...

    Full Text Available Trata-se de uma investigação acerca do conceito de dispositivo disciplinar concebido pelo filósofo francês, Michel Foucault. Apresenta-se em que consiste um dispositivo e sua ligação com poder-saber – a qual o permite funcionar como máquina edificadora de sujeitos. Em seguida, aborda-se como o dispositivo, na perspectiva disciplinar, atua nessa empreitada: sua organização, suas formas de exercício de poder, as ligações estabelecidas entre esses aparelhos – o que caracteriza a sociedade panóptica – e, também, como se aproveitam os indivíduos formados de maneira contrária à lógica desse dispositivo em outras metas, o que é verificado na análise da instituição que mais intensifica esse processo: a prisão.

  15. A measurement of the tau Michel parameters at SLD

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    Quigley, James A. [Massachusetts Inst. of Technology (MIT), Cambridge, MA (United States)

    1997-05-01

    This thesis presents a measurement of the tau Michel parameters. This measurement utilizes the highly polarized SLC electron beam to extract these quantities directly from the measured tau decay spectra using the 1993--95 SLD sample of 4,528 tau pair events. The results are ρe = 0.71 ± 0.14 ± 0.05, ζe = 1.16 ± 0.52 ± 0.06, and (ζδ)e = 0.85 ± 0.43 ± 0.08 for tau decays to electrons and ρμ = 0.54 ± 0.28 μ 0.14, ημ = -0.59 ± 0.82 ± 0.45, ζsup>μ = 0.75 ± 0.50 ± 0.14, and (ζδ)μ = 0.82 ± 0.32 ± 0.07 for tau decays to muons. Combining all leptonic tau decays gives ρ = 0.72 ± 0.09 ± 0.03, ζ = 1.05 ± 0.35 ± 0.04, and ζδ = 0.88 ± 0.27 ± 0.04. These results agree well with the current world average and the Standard Model.

    2007-06-01

    Full Text Available Desde os anos cinquenta do século XX, uma forte corrente do pensamento francês, tem debatido a questão do lugar e papel do intelectual, fora e dentro da cena política. Alguns importantes autores deste cenário são Louis Althusser, Michel Foucault, Gilles Deleuze. Para eles, a relação do intelectual com seu tempo está relacionada a uma modalidade de 'anti-humanismo teórico' cujos efeitos políticos são da maior importância. Dentre eles, está a pulverização do campo das práticas libertárias, a expansão das lutas de libertação a objetivos ímpares e renovados, assim como a defesa do lugar descentrado, e por isto mesmo invulgar e estrategicamente móvel, do intelectual. Nossas perguntas: Como praticar, nesses tempos, lutas de resistência aos poderes com real vigor teórico e potencial efetivo de transformação? Como se engajar sem se deixar dominar pelo próprio movimento de transformação da sociedade e se tornar prisioneiro da história?

  17. A measurement of the Michel parameter {rho} in muon decay

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    Mischke, R.E.; Amann, J.F.; Bolton, R.D. [and others

    1994-07-01

    An improved measurement of the Michel parameter {rho} in normal muon decay has been made using the MEGA positron spectrometer. Muons were stopped in the center of a large solenoid (1.5 T nominal field) and the momenta of positrons with energies over about 35 MeV were measured with a precision of about 0.6 MeV/c FWHM. There over 15 million events in each spectrum taken for three operating configurations. The previous result has a precision of {delta}{rho}/{rho} = 0.003 based on a sample of about 1 million events in the positron energy spectrum. The present experiment expects to improve the precision by a factor of three to six, depending on the level of systematic uncertainties. The improved result is a precise test of the standard model of electroweak interactions for a purely leptonic process. It also provides a better constraint on the mixing angle in a left-right symmetric extension to the standard model.

  18. [The birth of acknowledgement: Michel Foucault and Werner Leibbrand].

    Science.gov (United States)

    Mildenberger, Florian

    2006-01-01

    In 1964, Werner Leibbrand (1896-1974) was the first German medical historian to present, in Sudhoffs Archiv, a review of the work of Michel Foucault (1926-1984). This paper examines some of the reasons leading to the fact that Leibbrand's own generation refused to acknowledge the importance of Foucault's ideas, while, later on, younger German medical historians, although impressed with Foucault's writings, failed to acknowledge, first, the close relationship between Leibbrand's and Foucault's world views, and, second, Leibbrand's attempts at introducing Foucault to German medical historians. Leibbrand with his Jewish wife had survived the Nazi period partly in hiding. His attempts at clearing post-war German psychiatry and medical historiography of NS-sympathizers isolated him among his colleagues, many of whom had begun their career during the Third Reich. Leibbrand enjoyed the support by the Swiss medical historian and avowed Communist Erwin Ackerknecht (1906-1988), but later turned against him, possibly because Acknerknecht had called Leibbrand's writings "unscientific". Leibbrand was unable to overcome his antagonisms with his contemporaries. At the same time, opposition to Ackerknecht made him appear a respresentative of the past in the eyes of the younger generation. Thus, when Foucault was accepted by the latter, they were not prepared to examine the work of Leibbrand and realize how close some of the ideas developed by Leibbrand and Foucault had been.

Su rasgo más característico consiste en proponer la creación de establecimientos donde deberían ingresar todos los niños para recibir una educación común en régimen de internado y a expensas de la República. Las propuestas de Lepeletier originaron un intenso debate en el que participaron diversos diputados, entre los que destacan Gégoire, Bourdon, Lequino, Fourcroy y Thibaudeau, además de Robespierre y Danton. Los temas que suscitaron una mayor polémica fueron la obligatoriedad de la educación común, su financiación y la reclusión de los niños en las «casas de la igualdad», así como la inspiración espartana del proyecto...This work contains the analyses of the National Education Plan drawn up by Michel Lepeletier and presented to the Convention by Robespierre on Julay 13th, 1793, seeking to place it within the educational coordinates of the French Revolution.

    2010-01-01

    Full Text Available Pretende-se analisar como, no pensamento de Michel Foucault, a investigação em torno da ética do cuidado de si pode ser lida como desdobramento da ideia de governamentalidade, problematizada a partir de 1978; procura-se indicar, ainda, que essa ética do cuidado de si é a condição do governo político dos outros, na leitura da tradição socrática, o que possibilita uma revisitação da política. Mas, desde a avaliação que Foucault faz da figura de Sócrates em relação à política ateniense até seu diagnóstico da política contemporânea, essa revisitação tem sido conflitante, pelo menos quando se trata da constatação da maneira como as instituições políticas cuidam dos cidadãos. Esse conflito beira ao paradoxo, posto que, ao mesmo tempo em que a biopolítica afirma uma política da vida, no sentido de proporcionar seu cuidado, preservação, longevidade, observa-se também a atuação de uma política sobre a vida, enquanto vida controlada e submetida ao biopoder. Essa discrepância entre dispositivos discursivos e práticas efetivas demonstra uma ausência do cuidado da verdade, entendido aqui como coerência entre o que se diz e o que se faz. Enquanto desdobramento do cuidado de si, o cuidado da verdade pode ser interpretado como uma chave de leitura fundamental para o diagnóstico dos riscos e perigos que ameaçam recorrentemente a vida humana.The aim of this paper is to analyze how, according to Michel Foucault's ideas, the investigation of the ethics of care of the self might be considered the unfolding of the idea of governmentality, problematized in 1978; we also aim at indicating that this ethics of care of the self is the basis for the political government of others according to the Socratic tradition, and that makes a revisitation of politics possible. However, from Foucault's evaluation of Socrates's view of the Athenian politics until his diagnosis of contemporary politics, this revisitation has been

    2016-01-19

    The LArIAT Experiment aims to calibrate the liquid argon time projection chamber (LArTPC) using a beam of charged particles at the Fermilab Test Beam Facility. It is equipped with a novel scintillation light readout system using PMTs and custom SiPM preamplifier boards to detect light from reflector foils coated with wavelength-shifting TPB. A trigger on delayed secondary flashes of light captures events containing stopping cosmic muons together with the Michel electrons coming from their subsequent decay. This dedicated Michel trigger supplies an abundant sample of low-energy electrons throughout the detector's active volume, providing opportunities to study the combined calorimetric capabilities of the light system and the TPC. Preliminary results using scintillation light to study properties of the Michel electron sample are presented.

    1993-06-01

    Full Text Available In La Goutte d'Or , Michel Tournier offers a critique of Western culture by constructing a novel that reflects both Jean Baudrillard's theories of simulacra and the political economy of the sign and Martin Heidegger's meditations on technology. Tournier's novel explores the relationship between Heidegger's explanation of technology as an act of Enframing ( Ge-stell and Baudrillard's description of an economy based upon exchange-sign value. Thus, through La Goutte d 'Or , Michel Tournier depicts the violent confrontation between a symbolic exchange economy based on poietic acts and late capitalist economies of autonomized signs.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Carmona-Fonseca, Jaime

    2006-12-01

    Several techniques are available to measure red cell cholinesterase; therefore, evaluations with several methods provide a measure of concordance. An equation was formulated to transform native data of reference values to reference units of cholinesterase activity as measured by Michel and EQM tests. The experimental design was descriptive, transversal and prospective. The group sampled was a representative adult working population, aged 18-75, without previous exposure to cholinesterase inhibitors pesticides. The individuals were affiliated to the Social Security System and resided in Valle de Aburrá and Cercano Oriente Antioqueño (Antioquia Province, northwestern Colombia). Of 827 individuals, quantitative erythrocytes (Michel y EQM) tests exhibited "r" coefficients between 0.67 and R2 coefficient of 44%.,This indicated that one test explained the results in other test in 44% of the cases. The corelation was higher in Aburrá than in Oriente. The linear model for the 827 individuals was as follows: EQM U/g oxy-hemoglobin = 9.575 U/ g oxy-hemoglobin + 29.791 (Michel delta pH/hour). Michel delta pH/hr = 0.3312 delta pH/hour + 0.0149 (EQM U/g oxy-hemoglobin), where EQM was expressed in U/g oxy-hemoglobin and Michel pH change/hr. Inter-sections (coefficient a) and inclines (coefficient b) were significant in this model. In the adjusted equations, after exclusion of 12 extreme data (1.5% of 827), the r coefficient increased from 0.67 to 0.72 The adjusted equations were as follows: EQM U/g oxy-hemoglobin = 8.1884 U/g oxy-hemoglobin + 31.3920 (Michel delta pH/hour); Michel delta pH/hr = 0.2925 delta pH/hr + 0.0161 (EQM U/g oxy-hemoglobin). This system of linear equations permitted the transformation of Michel (delta PH/ hr) units to EQM (U/g oxy-hemoglobin) units and vice versa. This will facilitate data comparisons by clinicians and epidemiologists who are using these methods of cholinesterase measurement.

Très bien documenté, son chantier dévoile un mobilier et un décor exemplaire par son homogénéité et par la place accordée à la peinture murale. Cette étude met en évidence, outre le rôle du peintre Alphonse Colas, des artistes méconnus comme Albéric Duyver et Marie Carin. L’iconographie, qui révèle un des plus importants cycles consacrés à l’archange saint Michel, est également extrêmement caractéristique de son temps.After the demolition of the fortifications at Lille, in 1858, a new quarter developed to the south of the city. One of the important features of this new neighbourhood was the Saint-Michel church, built between 1868 and 1874 to the designs of the architect Alfred Coisel. The building of this church is exceptionally well documented and reveals church furnishings and decoration of an exemplary nature in terms of homogeneity and the special place given over to mural paintings. This study underlines the role of the painter Alphonse Colas, but also the contribution of other, less well known artists such as Albéric Duyver and Marie Carin. The iconographical theme is one of the most important cycles of its time devoted to the archangel Saint Michel, and is highly characteristic of the period.

    Full Text Available The aim of this paper is to examine the role of humour in Théâtre sans animaux. Our approach is to define two forms of humour which play on the effects of incoherence: the unusual and the absurd. We then examine these two forms of humour and the effects which they produce in Jean-Michel Ribes’s text. We show the specificity of the humor of Ribes which articulates the unusual with the absurd.

    .... The second objective is to identify the paradoxes and dilemmas of the intellectualization of protest on the example of Michel Foucault and the organization Groupe d’Information sur les Prisons. Following Foucault’s case, the author argues that the protest cannot avoid symbolic appropriation by those who claim to be its greatest advocates, and elites declaring themselves to be social critics are often uncritical towards their ideological positions.

    We sought better understanding about the facial nerve anatomy in the rare inner ear Michel anomaly to help better define this aplasia and prevent potential complications in surgery on these patients. The data from computed tomography scans and magnetic resonance images of six Michel aplastic ears (three patients) were evaluated for a facial nerve course. Facial nerve course and anatomic landmarks were noted. Based on data obtained from this group of very rare patients, three different facial nerve anatomies were encountered. The first patient had normal-looking mastoid cells, normal middle ear ossicles, and a completely formed facial nerve canal through the middle ear. The second patient had pneumatized mastoid air cells despite an anomalous ossicular chain. This patient also had a facial nerve canal but not through the middle ear. In the third patient, although mastoid cells were present, neither ossicles nor a definite facial nerve canal could be detected. With guidance provided by the anatomy of the other parts of the ear, such as air cells and the ossicular chain, the danger zones posing a high probability of facial nerve injury can be predicted. Although all Michel aplasias may have aplastic petrous bone in common, there are some degrees of variation.

    Michel Durand-Delga made a success of an outstanding career in geology. His route might be considered as one of a pioneer of a new kind. He set a meticulous rhythm in this discipline of the Earth sciences, particularly in Algeria, the country he loved for its geology, landscapes and population. The first of his fructuous works was published in 1948 on the geology of the Petite Kabylie and he continued, for most his life, to work very closely on this zone which he characterized, in a definitive way, as different from the African continent with at first structural then stratigraphical evidence. He highlighted the Kabylian thrust where the northern domain (internal, also called Kabyle) overlaps a southern domain (external or African). All the geological information that came later either produced by him or later by his students and opponents supported this great hypothesis which today has become a reliable paradigm. (Author)

    This content analysis of media coverage of Michele Bachmann's erroneous comments that the HPV vaccine causes mental retardation explores the relationship between truth-telling (the presentation of accurate information) and balance (presenting opposing perspectives of an issue equally and legitimately) in public health reporting. Of 200 articles analyzed, about 50% provided correction and about 40% provided a counterpoint. We also found that health reporters tended to engage in truth-telling and balance more than political reporters. Implications for theory and practice are discussed.

    2012-01-01

    The French philosopher Michel Eyquem de Montaigne (1533-1592) sustained a transient loss of consciousness due to a head injury. Montaigne described his concussion as a "swoon," with astutely illustrative details of the symptoms he experienced, including brief loss of consciousness, with apparent (temporary) confusion, and post-traumatic amnesia. His vivid portrayal of the recovery period lends understanding of the process of conscious awakening after his near-death experience. Thanks to his power of introspection and literary talent we may gain insight into the feelings and perceptions of some patients during their recovery from concussion. Copyright © 2012 Elsevier Inc.

    In two siblings, wearing conventional hearing aid, presenting profound but not total congenital deafness, with no particular antecedents, the imaging destined to confirm the indication of a cochlear implant revealed a total bilateral agenesis of the inner ear. In one of the children, this imaging was confirmed by an exploration of the middle ear performed during a tonsillectomy that was otherwise necessary. We will summarize the literature concerning Michel's Disease, exceptional in its princeps form, and we will discuss the manner of action of conventional devices in these cases which are a priori without any sensorial element.

    This paper aims to analyze Michel Foucault's position toward phenomenological psychology and psychopathology during the 1950s, in light of the new documentary sources available today. Our investigation is especially focused on one of the courses given by Foucault at the University of Lille between 1952 and 1954, namely, the course on "Binswanger and phenomenology" (1953-54). The analysis of this course, which was conceived by Foucault within the context of a philosophical reflection on the anthropological problem of psychopathology, will finally allow us to re-ascribe Foucault the place he deserves in the field of "philosophy of psychiatry".

  9. Michel Electron Reconstruction Using Cosmic-Ray Data from the MicroBooNE LArTPC

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    Acciarri, R.; et al.

    2017-04-10

    The MicroBooNE liquid argon time projection chamber (LArTPC) has been taking data at Fermilab since 2015 collecting, in addition to neutrino beam, cosmic-ray muons. Results are presented on the reconstruction of Michel electrons produced by the decay at rest of cosmic-ray muons. Michel electrons are abundantly produced in the TPC, and given their well known energy spectrum can be used to study MicroBooNE's detector response to low-energy electrons (electrons with energies up to ~50 MeV). We describe the fully-automated algorithm developed to reconstruct Michel electrons, with which a sample of ~14,000 Michel electron candidates is obtained. Most of this article is dedicated to studying the impact of radiative photons produced by Michel electrons on the accuracy and resolution of their energy measurement. In this energy range, ionization and bremsstrahlung photon production contribute similarly to electron energy loss in argon, leading to a complex electron topology in the TPC. By profiling the performance of the reconstruction algorithm on simulation we show that the ability to identify and include energy deposited by radiative photons leads to a significant improvement in the energy measurement of low-energy electrons. The fractional energy resolution we measure improves from over 30% to ~20% when we attempt to include radiative photons in the reconstruction. These studies are relevant to a large number of analyses which aim to study neutrinos by measuring electrons produced by $\

Esse contexto, aliado à cultura de massas, promoveu as marcas a símbolos culturais complexos e globais. Nosso objetivo foi buscar a compreensão de como é possível uma marca transnacional se estabelecer numa cultura local reproduzindo a cultura global. Inspirados no projeto arqueológico de Michel Foucault, construímos um corpus fotográfi co de práticas cotidianas de uma marca global. Tal processo se deu por meio de um trabalho de ordenação, defi nição e descrição, elaborado no interior do campo discursivo, pautado nas ações de marketing da marca. A análise nos revelou as formações discursivas entre culturas global e local e nos possibilitou desvelar as relações existentes nessa teia. Os resultados apontaram alguns caminhos para refl exão, tanto acerca da importância assumida pela marca na cultura quanto da forma assumida pelas sociedades ocidentais contemporâneas. ----- Discursive Formations of a Global Brand in a Local Context: a study inspired in Michel Foucault’s archaeological method ----- ABSTRACT ----- The advent of globalization has generated an entangled field of cross-cultures enabling the establishment of universal values in local media. This context and mass culture have promoted brands to become complex and global cultural symbols. Our aim is to understand how a transnational brand can establish itself in a local culture reproducing a global one. Inspired by Michel Foucault’s archaeological project, we constructed a photographic corpus of the daily practices of a global brand. This was done by ordering, defi ning and describing within the discursive field, guided by brand marketing practices. The analysis revealed the discursive formations between global and local cultures and unveiled existing links in this network. Our results can

    Full Text Available In hydropower, the exploitation of small power sources requires the use of small turbines that combine efficiency and economy. Banki-Michell turbines represent a possible choice for their simplicity and for their good efficiency under variable load conditions. Several experimental and numerical tests have already been designed for examining the best geometry and optimal design of cross-flow type machines, but a theoretical framework for a sequential design of the turbine parameters, taking full advantage of recently expanded computational capabilities, is still missing. To this aim, after a review of the available criteria for Banki-Michell parameter design, a novel two-step procedure is described. In the first step, the initial and final blade angles, the outer impeller diameter and the shape of the nozzle are selected using a simple hydrodynamic analysis, based on a very strong simplification of reality. In the second step, the inner diameter, as well as the number of blades and their shape, are selected by testing single options using computational fluid dynamics (CFD simulations, starting from the suggested literature values. Good efficiency is attained not only for the design discharge, but also for a large range of variability around the design value.

    Full Text Available Resumo: Em sua teoria da encarnação, Michel Henry subverte radicalmente o paradigma cartesiano tal como é entendido pela fenomenologia tradicional, oferecendo à psicologia e a outras áreas do saber a concepção da indissociabilidade entre a subjetividade e o corpo. Ele concebe o corpo como subjetivo e o denomina carne, sendo que as dissociações são modos de padecimento da individualidade encarnada. Contudo, Michel Henry não tematiza os problemas da encarnação e suas consequências, sendo que tais problemas podem advir de degenerações orgânicas. É relevante para a clínica psicológica tematizarmos sobre os problemas da encarnação, pois o modo como vivemos o corpo é o modo como habitamos a carne. O objetivo deste trabalho é buscar compreender a questão da encarnação nas degenerações orgânicas e como elas afetam a constituição do Si. Para tanto, será utilizado o sentido da audição e sua perda como fio condutor na abordagem da problemática.

    Full Text Available Racism as a Social Defense Strategy. Michel Foucault and Current Forms of Biopower - During his lessons held at the College de France in 1976 Michel Foucault presents a genealogy of two types of narratives, concerning respectively war and race theory, considered in their historical development from the XVIth Century. Foucault’s work Il faut défendre la société outlines a specific model for the function of race theory, seen as a technique of normalization of diversity, and not longer as an “exceptional event” produced by the “totalitarian” narratives which arose in the XXth Century. This paper aims to stress the actuality of Foucault’s position, trying to show how the concept of bio-power, already at work in these lessons, deserves an active and productive role in the analysis of contemporary “democratic” societies, because of the structure of their internal cohesion, based on strategies developing “inclusion”/“exclusion” dynamics.

    Full Text Available This paper discusses the representation of mass tourism in Michel Houellebecq’s Plateform (2001 in relation to the concept of “non-place” defining the “supermodern” spaces proliferating in the globalized world deprived from historical, identitary and relational values. As the universe of tourism is the central element of the novel’s plot, we shall look at how it takes the form of a dysphoric configuration of a certain idea of travel, and how the language of simulacra, in which hotels airports constitute transfer platforms of the same capitalistic order, is sustaining it. Through the analysis of the production and consumption mechanisms of adventure circuits and vacation clubs, that slip inside the field of sexual tourism in Thailand, this book exposes ironically an alienated occidental society looking for an escape to everyday life in exotic destinations and à la carte sojourns.

In the book, Montaigne devotes a chapter to the Brazilian Indians in order to demonstrate the Europeans distante in relation to natural law and also the impossibility of civilized people to access natural laws. As a result, Montaigne understands that positive law is self -referential, a mere product of art characterized by “mystical foundation of the laws au- thority,” a term that indicates the impossibility of transcendent foundation for the laws.

  5. The Desire for Knowledge as an Incentive for Life in Community, following Michel de Montaigne

    Full Text Available A tendency towards truth indicates an inclination towards being in tune with the world and inserting one’s own life within it. It is a process that requires the concurrence of other viewpoints, fragmentary and diverse, the incorporation of which ensures the objectivity of knowledge and respects the richness of what it is real. Knowledge requires habits of coexistence and communication that establish a common space for equality and plurality in exchanges. Michel de Montaigne, in the troubled sixteenth century, celebrated the pleasure of discussion and exhorted people to travel as a form of avoiding personal pride and increasing their being through the encounter. A loyal search for truth in conjunction with courtesy in controversy would entail the promotion of civic virtues beyond mere tolerance and bring about attitudes of mutual interest, cordiality, dialogue, inclusion and care for that which is common.

  8. MICHEL FOUCAULT AND THE FINANCIAL GOVERNABILITY REFLECTIONS ON THE INTERNATIONAL FINANCIAL CRISIS

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    2010-01-01

    Full Text Available In this paper I present a governability or power technology form what I call financial governability that differs from the German ordoliberalism and the North American anacor-liberalism, analyzed by Michel Foucault. In which context does this form emerge from financial rationality?, how does it emerge and develop itself?, what meanings has it got for biopolítics and governability? And what implications happen from this transformation process of the human work in financial capital?, these are some of the matters that are discussed in this paper. As from the concepts of biopolítics and governability, I treat the theories of the policy of society and human capital, as foundations of the German ordoliberalism and the North American anarco-liberalism, respectively, later discussing the governability form which I call financial governability, as power technology differentiated from those.

  12. 'Il Sonnambulo' by Michele Carafa: A Forgotten Romantic Opera with Sleepwalking.

    2016-01-01

    Romantic operas provide a useful tool for historians to understand the perception of some medical disorders that existed during the nineteenth century. Somnambulism was still a mysterious condition during this time, since its pathogenesis was unknown. Hence, it comes as no surprise that somnambulism features in a number of operas, the best known of which are Verdi's 'Macbeth' and Bellini's 'La Sonnambula', both the subject of recent scholarship. Here we examine a more obscure opera in which sleepwalking is depicted. Dating from 1824, 'Il Sonnambulo' by the Italian composer Michele Carafa is based on a libretto by Felice Romani. Although it shares some features with the Verdi and Bellini operas, it also presents original elements. Our analysis of this forgotten opera supports the contention that studying operas can shed light on medical theories and practices, and on how ideas about mind and body disorders were transmitted to the laity in times past. © 2016 S.

Subjetividade é um conceito amplamente utilizado em psicologia, mas nem por isso há um consenso a respeito de seu significado. Busca-se discutir o conceito de subjetividade em Michel Foucault, sugerindo que este pode ser um conceito estratégico, na medida em que nos permite pensar a partir da indissociabilidade entre individual e coletivo, interior e exterior, dentro e fora, indivíduo e sociedade, rompendo com as dicotomias que tradicionalmente marcaram os campos da psicologia e dos estudos sobre a relação saúde e trabalho.

    The MicroBooNE liquid argon time projection chamber (LArTPC) has been taking data at Fermilab since 2015 collecting, in addition to neutrino beam, cosmic-ray muons. Results are presented on the reconstruction of Michel electrons produced by the decay at rest of cosmic-ray muons. Michel electrons are abundantly produced in the TPC, and given their well known energy spectrum can be used to study MicroBooNE's detector response to low-energy electrons (electrons with energies up to ~ 50 MeV). We describe the fully-automated algorithm developed to reconstruct Michel electrons, with which a sample of ~ 14,000 Michel electron candidates is obtained. Most of this article is dedicated to studying the impact of radiative photons produced by Michel electrons on the accuracy and resolution of their energy measurement. In this energy range, ionization and bremsstrahlung photon production contribute similarly to electron energy loss in argon, leading to a complex electron topology in the TPC. By profiling the performance of the reconstruction algorithm on simulation we show that the ability to identify and include energy deposited by radiative photons leads to a significant improvement in the energy measurement of low-energy electrons. The fractional energy resolution we measure improves from over 30% to ~ 20% when we attempt to include radiative photons in the reconstruction. These studies are relevant to a large number of analyses which aim to study neutrinos by measuring electrons produced by νe interactions over a broad energy range.

Nella linea di faglia rappresentata dal primo conflitto mondiale, i due sociologi sono in una doppia relazione interiore appunto franco-italiana Pareto e italo-tedesca Michels e una relazione esteriore fra il mondo di ieri e il mondo successivo al cataclisma che fu la prima guerra mondiale, quando ben quattro imperi colossali erano stati smembrati (l’Impero Russo, l’Impero Tedesco, l’Impero Austro-ungarico e l’Impero ottomano, nello stesso tempo in cui Emile Durkheim guardava con inquietudine alla disgregazione delle vecchie comunità tradizionali, dove il senso della crisi del tempo investe non solo le persone e i comportamenti, ma il mondo logico stesso. Lo scambio epistolare avviene nella stessa terra: Pareto a Celigny, sul lago di Ginevra , e Michels a Basilea , lungo le rive del Reno. Vi è, fra i due sociologi un profondo rispetto, che vedrà Robert Michels dedicare allo “scienziato e amico Vilfredo Pareto con venerazione” un’opera importante come “Problemi di sociologia applicata” pubblicata solo tre anni dopo il Trattato di Sociologia Generale del Maestro. In questa antologia di saggi Robert Michels, probabilmente composti fra il 1914 e il 1917, negli anni del grande cataclisma, anzi concepiti prima «dell’insediamento di questa terribile corte suprema di cassazione di tutte le nostre ideologie, che è la guerra» , quindi contemporanea al Trattato, il Maestro viene citato tre volte, come Max Weber, ma, de facto, la presenza di Pareto è continua. In particolare, il richiamo al Maestro è iscritto a due piste di ricerca: da una parte la realtà della ricerca sociologica e del suo amplissimo spettro di analisi e dall’altra la teoria della circolazione delle elités.

    Full Text Available Il est désormais connu que Michel Foucault s’est intéressé à la fin de sa vie à l’ ”herméneutique du sujet.” Mais cette histoire de la constitution du sujet (ou de la subjectivité fait étrangement l’économie d’une réflexion sur le rôle de la compréhension, alors que Foucault qualifie son travail d’ ”ontologie historique de nous-mêmes.” C'est sur ce point précis qu’est ici mis à l'épreuve le caractère médiateur de l’œuvre de Paul Ricœur, dont l’herméneutique du soi prend en charge une ontologie de la compréhension. Suite à ces considérations, la seconde partie de l’article cherche à démontrer que la théorie de l’agir de Ricœur peut favoriser le passage d’une reconnaissance de type objectale à une reconnaissance des capacités du sujet à se tenir pour responsable. Ce passage sera opéré directement sur le modèle d’analyse du “dernier Foucault,” c’est-à-dire son concept-clé de “processus de subjectivation.”In his later work, Michel Foucault manifested a strong interest for the “hermeneutics of the subject.” Yet this history of the constitution of the subject (or subjectivity does without any reflection on the role of understanding, even though Foucault characterizes his project as a historical ontology of ourselves. The power of mediation emphasized in the work of Paul Ricœur may help us redefine an ontology of understanding through a hermeneutics of the self. Following this, the second part of the article aims to show that Ricœur’s theory of action can facilitate a transition from the recognition of the self, first described as “objectivation,” to a recognition of the subject’s capacity to be held responsible. This passage will draw on the model of analysis in the later Foucault, specifically, on his key concept of the subjectivation process.

    2008-01-01

    parte del artículo me ocupo de las motivaciones del pensador francés para su retorno a Grecia; analizo los desplazamientos que realiza a lo largo de su tarea de búsqueda y la distinción que hace entre ética y moral. Igualmente, afirmo que Michel Foucault llega hasta la cultura griega y grecolatina y encuentra las técnicas de sí mismo que permiten la realización de una historia de la conformación de la subjetividad, a las cuales les da el nombre de artes de la existencia. En la segunda parte abordo la cuestión del poder pastoral, la gubernamentalidad y la Ilustración. Por último, teniendo en cuenta que Foucault no cree que el único punto posible de resistencia al poder político esté en la relación de uno consigo mismo, esta resistencia permite fragmentar el poder e inventar posibilidades de vida inéditas, pues, la tarea fundamental de nuestro tiempo consiste en realizar aquel tipo de acción que tiene como fin producir un nuevo tipo de subjetividad que permita liberarse a la vez del Estado y del tipo de individualización que está ligado a él, por lo cual, debemos promover nuevas formas de subjetividad por medio del rechazo de este tipo de individualidad que se nos ha impuesto durante siglos.

  9. [Michel de Montaigne (1533-1592). Writer philosopher, kidney stone patient and medical critic].

    Marx, F J

    2015-10-01

    Michel de Montaigne (1533-1592) was the most important representative of French Humanism in the sixteenth century. Fragmentarily scattered throughout his "essais" and in chronological order in the diary of his spa journeys to Italy, he extensively describes his suffering from kidney stones, which accompanied him from the age of 45 years up to his death. This urological self-report achieves additional weight due to the extraordinary personality of the patient, who reflects on his urolithiasis and the effect on his own life not only from a subjective viewpoint but also makes his disease experience a starting point for critical thoughts on the value and limitations of the medical possibilities in his epoch. With a clear knowledge of the difficulty of medical practice, he postulates a rational approach supported by experience. Particularly interesting is Montaigne's stance towards contemporary physicians. He sees the benefits of physician consultations for himself and for patients generally, as being rarely substantiated but, despite sometimes strong antimedical invectives, accuses the doctors themselves less than the, although rationally structured but still mostly speculative, medical teaching structure influenced by Hippocrates and Galenism.

    Full Text Available La losofía de Michel Foucault ha sido una de las influencias más importantes que el siglo XX ha ejercido sobre nuestro pensamiento político contemporáneo. Entre sus contribuciones, la noción de “biopoder” es notable tanto por el amplio espectro de problemas que ha señalado desde su creación por el pensador, cuanto por la flexibilidad con la que es capaz de cambiar su sentido en función del contexto de problematización en el que aparece. Para comprender cuál es el marco conceptual desde el que Foucault concibió esta noción en su Historia de la sexualidad, es necesario un trabajo de lectura atenta y análisis de las re exiones originales en torno a ella. Nuestra intención es prestar atención a cómo Foucault pensó el poder en sus cursos del Collège de France desde el inicio de la elabora- ción de Historia de la sexualidad.

Esse aprofundamento, segundo os autores, faz-se necessário sobretudo por meio de uma reflexão que rompa criticamente com uma visão eurocêntrica dos diferentes nacionalismos e que supere a atitude de muitos marxistas de desprezarem tudo aquilo que não seja diretamente relevante à "consciência de classe".

  14. La Filosofía de Michel Serres: una Moral de Base Objetiva

    Antonio Arellano Hernández

    2000-01-01

    Full Text Available Los temas que preocupan al filósofo francés Michel Serres son variados y, en cierto sentido, caóticos. Sin embargo, uno de los puntos esenciales de la filosofía del autor tiene como base empírica el problema de la moral, que el hombre deposita en los objetos tecnológicos en su proceso de elaboración. No es exagerado decir que el único propósito de su filosofía es el tema de la relación entre la ética y el desarrollo científico, que se manifestó con el uso de las bombas atómicas contra indefensos ciudadanos japoneses en la Segunda Guerra Mundial. El abordaje del tema de reflexión será el resultado de un camino explicativo que comienza por presentar la formación y el contexto de la obra del autor, continúa con la exposición de su método de trabajo y las nociones que integran el núcleo de su pensamiento. Al avanzar en esta propedéutica se analizarán sus nociones sobre la invención del futuro, el papel que en ella juega la tecnociencia y la necesidad de dotarla de una base moral.

    Full Text Available O presente artigo tem como objetivo elucidar os usos e sentidos da noção de sagrado nas formulações teóricas e nas trajetórias intelectuais de Georges Bataille (1897-1962 e Michel Leiris (1901-1990 na Paris dos anos 1930. Em meio às diversas experiências estético-políticas da época, que questionavam as possíveis formas da ação política tendo em vista sua ligação com a arte, destaca-se a proposta do Collège de Sociologie (1937-1939, associação animada pelos autores junto a Roger Caillois (1913-1978. O grupo toma o sagrado em dupla articulação: ao mesmo tempo que conceito descritivo, ele passa a ser entendido também como um operador político. Tal ideia é o ponto de partida para as reflexões conjugadas e ao mesmo tempo originais de Bataille e Leiris.

    Full Text Available Michel de Certeau (Chambéry 1925-París 1986 fue un pensador jesuita francés que ha dejado una obra arriesgada y poliédrica, atravesada por la historia, la antropología, la lingüística y el psicoanálisis. Dentro de ella destaca su inconclusa antropología del creer, en la que se muestra cómo creer y saber son dos realidades humanas interconectadas, dos dimensiones interdependientes e inseparables. Este artículo profundiza en la relación polemológica que mantienen entre sí, conflictiva pero constante. Además, se examina cómo, desde el punto de vista de Certeau, el creer ocupa una posición de precedencia respecto al saber, realizando la función de un suelo imprescindible sobre el que poder edificar el conocimiento. Finalmente, a través de la referencia a sus estudios sobre la mística, se ha ido mostrando cómo nuestro autor contempla el modo en que saber y creer se relacionan y desarrollan de modo conjunto.

  17. Critical thinking and contemporary mental health care: Michel Foucault's "history of the present".

    2017-04-01

    In order to be able to provide informed, effective and responsive mental health care and to do so in an evidence-based, collaborative and recovery-focused way with those who use mental health services, there is a recognition of the need for mental health professionals to possess sophisticated critical thinking capabilities. This article will therefore propose that such capabilities can be productively situated within the context of the work of the French philosopher Michel Foucault, one of the most challenging, innovative and influential thinkers of the 20th century. However, rather than focusing exclusively upon the content of Foucault's work, it will be suggested that it is possible to discern a general methodological approach across that work, a methodological approach that he refers to as "the history of the present." In doing so, Foucault's history of the present can be understood as a productive, albeit provisional, framework in which to orientate the purpose and process of critical thinking for mental health professionals by emphasizing the need to both historicize and politicize the theoretical perspectives and therapeutic practices that characterize contemporary mental health care. © 2016 John Wiley & Sons Ltd.

    Full Text Available Cytokinins are used for adventitious buds formation but high concentrations may have negative effects on plant regeneration. The aim of the present investigation was to determine the effect of different combinations of cytokinins on the induction of adventitious buds of cultivar ‘Gros Michel’ (Musa AAA. Different concentrations of 6-Benzylaminopurine (2.0, 4.0 and 6.0 mg l-1 and Thidiazuron (0.6, 0.8, 1.0 mg l-1 were studied to achieve the formation of these structures. As controls, 22.5 mg l-1 6-BAP and 2.0 mg l-1 TDZ, widely used for these purposes in this culture, were used. The treatment with 2.0 mg l-1 6-BAP + 1.0 mg l-1 TDZ was the one that achieved the highest percentage of adventitious buds formation, with 80% of the explants, with results much higher than those achieved by the controls and other combinations studied. With this treatment, an average of 2.72 adventitious buds per explant was obtained with the least number of shoots per explant (1.24 at 60 days of culture. For this reason, this combination of cytokinins was selected for the formation of adventitious buds in banana cv. 'Gros Michel', as it was possible to decrease the levels of 6-BAP and TDZ that have negative effects on the subsequent plants regeneration.   Keywords: bananas, 6- Benzylaminopurine, Thidiazuron

Na obra de Maffesoli, é clara a influência de seu amigo o mestre Gilbert Durand. Em uma das passagens de Homo eroticus – Des communions émotionnelles (CNRS Editions, 2012, Maffesoli relaciona C.G. Jung a Durand, lembrando que as histerias coletivas se encontram nas raízes daquilo ambos chamavam “psique objetiva”, ou seja, um conjunto estrutural psíquico de longa tradição, o “inconsciente coletivo” junguiano. O próprio Maffesoli reconhece dever a Durand a idéia de que a essência do gênero humano residiria no equilíbrio conflitual. Nesta entrevista, ele fala de imaginário, pós-modernidade e cultura e anarquismo.

  20. The production of the psychiatric subject: power, knowledge and Michel Foucault.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Roberts, Marc

    2005-01-01

    The issue of power has become increasingly important within psychiatry, psychotherapy and mental health nursing generally. This paper will suggest that the work of Michel Foucault, the French philosopher and historian, has much to contribute to the discussion about the nature, existence and exercise of power within contemporary mental health care. As well as examining his original and challenging account of power, Foucault's emphasis on the intimate relationship between power and knowledge will be explored within the context of psychiatry and mental health nursing. This is to say that the paper will investigate Foucault's account of how power and knowledge are central to the process by which human beings are 'made subjects' and therefore how 'psychiatric identities' are produced. In doing so, it will be suggested that Foucault's work can not only make a valuable contribution to contemporary discussions about power and knowledge, but can also provide a significant critique and reconceptualization of the theoretical foundations and associated diagnostic and therapeutic practices of psychiatry and mental health nursing.

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Francisco Javier Tirado

    2002-01-01

    Full Text Available En este artículo se analizan las diversas aportaciones de Michel Foucault a la cuestión del espacio. Se parte de la crítica que hace Foucault a la hegemonía del tiempo como última ideología y de la historia como paradigma interpretativo y como ontología de lo social. La discusión foucaultiana quiere repensar lo social a la luz del espacio. Si bien el análisis de la obra de Foucault se nutre de su propia producción teórica, nuestra lectura recoge aportaciones de autores como Deleuze, Serres, Harvey y Soja, para problematizar lo social desde una óptica espacial, puesto que el desvelamiento de los dispositivos de control y las prácticas de poder cruzan estratos espaciales y no responden al eje temporal como interpretación. De hecho, creemos que la insistencia en la historia como temporalidad es una de las formas de constitución del poder y la vigilancia en el terreno de las ciencias sociales.

    Full Text Available ¿Max Weber, relativista? Sí, sostiene Michel Maffesoli (1985. Para Raymond Boudon, líder intelectual de la corriente de pensamiento sociológico inspirada en la teoría de la racionalidad de Weber, la lectura relativista de la obra de éste sería inaceptable. A pesar de las diferencias de posición teórica y desacuerdos entre ambos autores en torno a la obra de Weber podríamos bien retener como hipótesis de trabajo la idea de la irreductibilidad de Weber a una sola posición epistemológica, como lo propone Maffesoli. Es, pues, bajo este aspecto y en el marco de las diferencias de posición entre ambos autores que tratamos de considerar esta otra interpretación relativista que hace Maffesoli de la sociología comprensiva de Weber. Daremos cuenta de ello a través de una entrevista que el sociólogo francés nos ha amablemente acordado. Se trata, entonces, a de discernir los aspectos de la teoría sociológica de Weber que más marcan la obra de Maffesoli y b de acentuar al mismo tiempo las diferencias de posición existentes entre uno y otro, entre la lectura relativista que nos propone Maffesoli y la que predica Boudon en el marco del individualismo metodológico.

  3. Accurate representation of interference colours (Michel-Lévy chart): from rendering to image colour correction.

    2017-09-21

    Here a work flow towards an accurate representation of interference colours (Michel-Lévy chart) digitally captured on a polarised light microscope using dry and oil immersion objectives is presented. The work flow includes accurate rendering of interference colours considering the colour temperature of the light source of the microscope and chromatic adaptation to white points of RGB colour spaces as well as the colour correction of the camera using readily available colour targets. The quality of different colour correction profiles was tested independently on an IT8.7/1 target. The best performing profile was using the XYZ cLUT algorithm and it revealed a ΔE00 of 1.9 (6.4 no profile) at 5× and 1.1 (8.4 no profile) at 100× magnification, respectively. The overall performance of the workflow was tested by comparing rendered interference colours with colour-corrected images of a quartz wedge captured over a retardation range from 80-2500 nm at 5× magnification. Uncorrected images of the quartz wedge in sRGB colour space revealed a mean ΔE00 of 12.3, which could be reduced to a mean of 4.9 by applying a camera correction profile based on an IT8.7/1 target and the Matrix only algorithm (ΔE00 colour differences imperceptible by the human eye). ΔE00 varied significantly over the retardation range of 80-2500 nm of the quartz wedge, but the reasons for this variation is not well understood and the quality of colour correction might be further improved in future by using custom made colour targets specifically designed for the analysis of high-order interference colours. © 2017 The Authors Journal of Microscopy © 2017 Royal Microscopical Society.

Although Henry and Kearney both develop a Christian theology rooted in this Husserlian inheritance, their explication of the truths Christianity asserts is strikingly different. It is the assertion of this essay that this difference is primarily a textual one; or, to put it another way, it is conditioned first by their scriptural gaze.Cet article se propose de reprendre le contenu de Michel Henry, C’est moi, la vérité et Richard Kearney The God Who May Be, dans lesquels les auteurs analysent la critique husserlienne de l’épistémologie kantienne. Bien que Henry et Kearney tous les deux développent une théologie chrétienne enracinée dans cet héritage husserlien, leur explication des vérités affirmées du Christianisme est très différente. Pour nous, la différence entre eux est de type textuel, c’est à dire qu’elle dépend de l’analyse qu’ils font de la Sainte Écriture.Questo articolo si propone di riprendere il contenuto dei testi Io sono la verità di Michel Henry e The God Who May Be di Richard Kearney, nei quali i rispettivi autori analizzano la critica husserliana dell'epistemologia di Kant. Sebbene entrambi sviluppano una "teologia" cristiana radicata in questa eredità husserliana, la loro spiegazione delle verità cristiane è alquanto differente. Per noi, la differenza tra essi è di tipo testuale, vale a dire che dipende dall'analisi che essi fanno del testo biblico.

    Full Text Available This analysis is focused on the concept of truth, which is intended as praxis and code of behaviour according to which the philosopher shapes his existence. Such matter is developed in the domain of ancient cynicism as well as of contemporary philosopher Carlo Sini. These two perspectives are put in contact. Michel Foucault’s speculation is an important instrument to articulate these two theories. In accordance with the French philosopher’s understanding, the criterion according to which the different forms of truth are analyzed is the consideration of the way they affect the subject’s behaviour. Such procedure questions our way to approach truth and philosophical practice.

    Full Text Available O presente trabalho visa problematizar a suposta constituição virtuosa entre educação e conhecimento oriunda de certa herança cultural da modernidade ocidental. A problemática ancora-se na indagação difusa, porém insistente, a ecoar no campo educacional: "o que é o ato do pensar, em educação, na contemporaneidade?". A tomada das condições atuais do pensamento como um problema de pesquisa educacional coloca em questão a histórica articulação entre conhecimento e pensamento reflexivo, obrigando ao confronto de certos amálgamas pedagógicos caros ao campo educacional moderno. Tal enfrentamento se realiza na companhia dos pensadores Michel Foucault e Friedrich Nietzsche, dada a relevância estratégica de suas produções, particularmente acerca da linguagem, da produção da verdade e de suas implicações nos modos de conhecer e pensar. Busca-se operacionalizar uma crítica da linguagem em direção a uma crítica do pensamento em educação, na chave de uma problematização ético-política. Nesse trabalho, tal plataforma analítica configura-se a partir das discussões de Michel Foucault - tanto em relação à questão do pensamento do fora, tal como elaborada por Maurice Blanchot, como em relação ao pensamento da diferença, tal como formulado por Gilles Deleuze. Sugerimos que a exploração desse debate possa atuar como um exercício de exterioridade ou de pensamento diferencial no jogo com o conhecimento e com o pensamento reflexivo presentes no campo educacional - seja no âmbito dos fazeres pedagógicos cotidianos da escola, seja no campo da produção da pesquisa educacional.This study aims to discuss the supposed virtuous constitution of education and knowledge originated from a certain cultural heritage of Western modernity.

No primeiro caso, especial destaque é dado à conduta de Foucault quando do assassinato do jornalista Vladimir Herzog nos porões da ditadura militar. No segundo, à vigilância exercida sobre o filósofo pelos serviços de informação, bem como à participação da imprensa alternativa, notadamente a anarquista, na divulgação de suas conferências e ideias. Embora Foucault nunca tenha escrito um trabalho específico sobre a imprensa, sua concepção de filosofia como jornalismo radical é posta em correlação com tais ocorrências, numa tentativa de articular narrativa histórica e crítica do presente.As part of the research "Michel Foucault in Brazil: presence, effects and resonances", the ways the philosopher appeared in both mainstream media and in the alternative press are focused. We privileged Foucault's visit to Brazil in 1975 and, more briefly, in 1976. In the first case, a special emphasis is given to the conduct of Foucault when the journalist Vladimir Herzog was murdered in the basements of the military dictatorship. In the second case, the monitoring carried out on the philosopher by the intelligence services is emphasized, as well as the role of the alternative press, notably the anarchist one, in the divulgation of his lectures and thoughts. Although Foucault had never written a particular work about media, his conception of philosophy as radical journalism is put in connection with such events in an attempt to articulate historical narrative and criticism of the present.

    Cell cultures obtained from Vitis vinifera cvs Michele Palieri and Red Globe were cultured in order to stimulate stilbene production. In the calli, stilbene production peaked at day 22 of culture for both cultivars; the main compound was trans-piceid, followed by cis-piceid. Methyl jasmonate, which was added to cell suspensions in the first half of the exponential growth phase, enhanced stilbene accumulation, producing mainly trans-piceid and epsilon-viniferin. Other stilbenoids, though in lower quantities, were identified by liquid chromatography/positive electrospray mass spectrometry. epsilon-Viniferin and trans-resveratrol were the main compounds released into the culture medium. The total quantity of stilbenes was genotype dependent, with a better response found for the cv Red Globe.

    Full Text Available The paper compares the understanding of totalitarianism by Hannah Arendt and Michel Foucault. First, a critical reading of Arendt depicts her understanding of the characteristics of totalitarianism. Ideology is ultimately shown to be crucial for Arendt. Then Foucault’s critique of the concept of ideology is provided together with his understanding of the functioning of power. Special attention is given to Foucault’s understanding of biopower and his theorizing about Nazism, racism, and Stalinism. In the last part of the paper similarities and differences between Foucault and Arendt in the understanding of totalitarianism are drawn, and a synthetic definition of totalitarianism is offered, which can be helpful in evaluating the historical and modern political orders as totalitarian.

    Full Text Available A partir de los años 1970, el historiador francés Michel de Certeau (1925-1986 comenzó a indagar la naturaleza epistemológica de la historiografía a partir de varios campos del saber. Uno de los más importantes ha sido, sin duda, el psicoanálisis. A lo largo de una serie de ensayos publicados en revistas como Annales, Action poétique o Lettres de l'École, de Certeau examinó el legado freudiano, discutió con el Foucault de Historia de la locura y la tradición antropológica de Géza Roheim. De tal modo, lejos de aplicar el psicoanálisis a la historia, de Certeau más bien propuso resituar sus espacios metodológicos a fin de "elucidar" la especificidad de cada disciplina

    Full Text Available Dieser Beitrag rekapituliert im Blick auf die Überlappungen von Macht, Souveränität und Herrschaft die soziale Morphologie der Foucaultschen Gesellschaftstheorie und betont dabei die Aktualität von Forschungen, die sich machtkritisch an den Dispositivbegriff anlehnen. Was ein Dispositiv ist, wird im Rekurs auf Deleuze und Agamben vor Augen geführt, um in der Figur der "schizophrenen Flucht" ein entscheidendes Moment der französischen Debatten auszumachen. Dabei ist der Panoptismus nach wie vor ein bemerkenswertes Modell, um historisch die innere Funktionsweise von Disziplinargesellschaften zu begreifen, die sich zu Kontrollgesellschaften gewandelt haben. Dem Homo digitalis steht angesichts von Big Data im Semiokapitalismus des 21. Jahrhunderts ein System wechselseitiger Kontrolle vor Augen, dem er sich lückenlos unterwerfen soll. Dem setzt sich nach wie vor die Figur der widerständigen Subjektivierung entgegen, wie sie Foucault in seinem Spätwerk entworfen hat. Auf allgemeinster Ebene hebt dieser Artikel hervor, dass wir auch heute noch ein politisches Modell vor Augen haben, dass der antiken Arena im Sinne einer politischen Heterotopie entspricht, in der es im Krieg um das nackte Überleben geht. Zusammenfassend wird Foucaults Kriegsparadigma über Michel de Certeaus Modellierung von Strategie und Taktik auf die Figur des Bürgerkriegs bezogen, um insgesamt zu betonen, dass dort wo Macht ist, immer auch Widerstand möglich ist. This article recaps the social morphology of Foucault’s theory of society in the light of power, sovereignty, and domination, emphasizing the actuality of research that is referring to the concept of apparatus. This concept is pointed out in the recourse to Deleuze and Agamben, to identify – in the figure of "schizophrenic escape" – a decisive moment in the French debates. Panoptism is still a remarkable model for historical understanding of the internal functioning of disciplinary societies that have

  18. Discovery of challacolloite, an uncommon chloride, on a fifteenth-century polychrome terracotta relief by Michele da Firenze

    The fifteenth-century gilt and polychromed terracotta relief, Virgin and Child by Michele da Firenze in the collection of the Yale University Art Gallery, was recently conserved in preparation for exhibition. The crystallization of water-soluble salts was suspected as the main reason behind its poor condition. Characterization of powdery deposits over remaining polychromy revealed the presence of KPb2Cl5 in addition to gypsum and other minor components. Detection of potassium lead chloride has not been previously reported in association with cultural heritage objects. The synthetic form of this compound has garnered attention during the past two decades due to its potential optical applications in the infrared region. In nature it occurs as challacolloite, a mineral first named only in 2005 in scientific literature and that primarily forms at high temperatures in fumaroles of volcanos, including those in Italy. The presence of this compound limits the types of materials that can be safely used in conservation treatment applications related to cleaning and consolidation, and therefore, its detection is important. This paper provides information that can serve as a reference for identifying other instances of challacolloite. The form and distribution of challacolloite on the Virgin and Child indicates that the compound is generated in situ and that crystal nucleation and growth result in loss of cohesion within paint layers, delamination of paint layers, and damage to the terracotta substrate. Possible rationales for the formation of this unusual compound are proposed.

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Rosa Spagnuolo Vigorita

    2017-06-01

    Full Text Available This paper is intended to point out the way Michel Henry’s material phenomenology redefines the relationship between life and living beings, starting with the deconstruction of western’s ontological monism. The primacy given by the traditional culture to exteriority would have prevented from thinking life in its own specific phenomenality. On the contrary, Henry develops a reflection directed to trace all appearing back to its immanent and invisible mode of manifestation. The first part of this essay focuses on the overturning accomplished by the French philosopher regarding the historical phenomenology, based on the intentional opening up to the world. Secondly, it is taken into account Henry’s criticism of biological reductionism implied by scientific ideology. This would have, indeed, forgotten the original truth of life’s self‐ affection and, therefore, the individuality of living subjectivity. In the final analysis, Henry’s proposal of an «absolute phenomenological life» is examined in relation to the critical problems that it may raise.

    Full Text Available RESUMEN:Este artículo presenta el pensamiento de Michel Montaigne como camino para interpretar aspectos de la formación docente contemporánea. En primer lugar se caracterizan las nociones de ensayo y de experiencia; se analizan las relaciones entre ellas; y se las discute como ejes de una propuesta formativa basada en una exploración seria de la propia vida. Luego, se presentan dos desafíos identificados por Russell (2012: por una parte, si bien han pasado 12 años escolarizados, al momento de comenzar con sus prácticas profesionales los alumnos de carreras de pedagogía tienen dificultades en explicar de qué se trata enseñar. Por otro lado, los profesores que dictan cursos de pedagogía suelen no ser los mismos que acompañan a los alumnos en sus primeras experiencias docentes. Esto tendería a crear una ruptura entre la educación que se recibe como alumno y la que se imparte como docente de práctica profesional. El artículo concluye proponiendo la posibilidad de implementar un ensayo de posición pedagógica. Éste constituiría una estrategia formativa por sí misma que permitiría, tanto a profesores experimentados como a novicios, visibilizar, articular y discutir los argumentos fundamentales desde los cuales orientan su tarea cotidiana como educadores.

    2016-12-01

    Full Text Available Dans l’anarchie des innocences (2007, Michel Dallaire propose une éthique de la création artistique, en particulier de l’écriture. Pour Dallaire, l’altérité est nécessaire au travail de création tel qu’il le conçoit et l’écriture non seulement exige à la fois un mouvement vers l’autre et vers soi, mais comporte nécessairement une dimension éthique qui prend la forme d’une critique sociale, une condamnation de l’apathie, de l’indifférence et de l’individualisme de la société contemporaine. Dans ce récit poétique, chaque personnage qui surgit sur l’écran de l’ordinateur du narrateur-écrivain – soit le journaliste, la dame aux crevettes, la mouche Gertrude, le voisin musicien et le peintre Coleslaw – constitue une facette de l’expression de sa révolte. Inspiré par Le défaut des ruines est d’avoir des habitants (1957 du poète québécois Roland Giguère, Dallaire met donc en scène un « bon gars » qui tente d’effectuer une révolution intérieure. Celui-ci cherche à affirmer sa différence et son désir de liberté dans un rapport critique avec la société dans laquelle il évolue. Pour y arriver, il effectue une plongée en soi, par l’écriture. Sa métamorphose souhaitée est cependant toujours à recommencer.

  3. Ethical identification of the subject, and “techniques of the self” in the works of Michel Foucault

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Yu V Yatsutsenko

    2016-12-01

    Full Text Available We are used to the image of an individual as getting into the social reality created before and without him; however, Michel Foucault questions the genealogy of the modern subject, and states that within a ready-made social reality an individual is not given even to himself. Foucault considers processes and practices of individual self-identification, and modes of subjectivation , i. e. the ways, by which an individual seeks and finds his place in an already and completely configured system of social relations. Foucault develops a specific conceptual tool - “techniques of the self” as sets of representations and practices, by which an individual changes oneself and integrates into some ethical systems (of knowledge, rules of behavior, power relations. “Techniques of the self” are purely social, they do not constitute any ethical identity; on the contrary, they provide a socially determined self-identification. Foucault’s “techniques of the self” let us conceptualize the coincidence of the seemingly anonymous processes of governing and individual self-definition; these techniques serve as indicators of individual ethical normalization. Identification of the “techniques of the self” in subjects’ actions helps to define the governing processes not as a violent submission, but as a basic state of the social interaction systems. In order to verify the heuristic potential of the “techniques of the self” concept, the author considers ancient and early Christian models of subjectivation, which Foucault opposed as two ethical models of subject’s access to the “truths”. With the ancient ethical “techniques of the self”, a subject is a full-fledged ethical agent; with the early Christian techniques, he is to accept one’s ontological inability to establish the righteousness based only on one’s personal experience. For example, such an opposition helps to explain differences between tutorship forms and self-control goals.

  4. From Life to Existence: A Reconsideration of the Question of Intentionality in Michel Henry’s Ethics

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Frédéric Seyler

    2012-12-01

    Full Text Available Michel Henry has renewed our understanding of life as immanent affectivity: life cannot be reduced to what can be made visible; it is – as immanent and as affectivity – radically invisible. However, if life (la vie is radically immanent, the living (le vivant has nonetheless to relate to the world: it has to exist. But, since existence requires and includes intentional components, human reality – being both living and existing – implies that immanence and intentionality be related to one another, even though they are conceived at the same time as radically distinct modes of appearing in Henry’s phenomenology of life. Following this line of thought, we are faced with at least two questions: First, what reality does immanent appearing have for us as existing and intentional beings? And second, from an ethical point of view, what does Henry’s opposition of “barbarism” and “second birth” mean in terms of existence? As will be shown, it follows from the standpoint of radical phenomenology itself that immanent affectivity has reality for us only insofar as it finds its expression or translation in the realm of the intentionally visible and that, with regard to ethics, both “barbarism” and its overcoming in “second birth” are effective only insofar as they are mediated through representations. Henry’s critique of representation and intentionality needs therefore to be revised, especially in the field of practical philosophy, where the essential role played by intentionality has to be acknowledged even by radical phenomenology.

    Full Text Available Este artigo propõe-se a expor as reflexões de dois filósofos contemporâneos, quais sejam, Michel Foucault e Giorgio Agamben, de modo a promover um paralelo,ou mesmo uma analogia, entre duas noções que permeiam as obras dos respectivos autores. Estas noções consistem no que Foucault chamou de Racismo de Estado, e no que Agamben nomeou de Tanatopolítica. O contexto, e tambémo objeto, no qual se efetiva este intento é, em uma palavra, a política totalitária do Estado nazista.Ambos os autores compreendem os fenômenos totalitários a partir do ponto de vista da biopolítica, entretanto, ao tratar do Estado Nacional-socialista, Foucault identifica nele um paradoxo, sem, contudo desenvolver com maior profundidade a imbricação que ali se deu. Agamben, por sua vez, concebe semelhante paradoxo como pertencendo a uma forma de fazer política que já traz, desde a sua origem, os fundamentos que permitiram a emergência do fenômeno da forma como surgiu e que fora identificada pelos ditos autores, ou seja, trazendo em si tanto elementos antigos, como a glória e os ideais de sangue, quanto modernos, como a eugenia. A pesquisa bibliográfica que aqui se desenvolveu deu-se na leitura de, basicamente, três obras dos supraditos autores, quais sejam, Em defesa da sociedade, História da sexualidade I – A vontade de saber, de um lado (Foucault, e Homo sacer – O poder soberano e a vida nua I, de outro (Agamben.

    Tidal channel developed in mega-tidal salt marsh offer a unique set of characteristics to study the interaction between hydraulics, riparian vegetation and sedimentation using Terrestrial Laser Scanner (TLS). The recession of water allows a nearly complete survey of the channel that is otherwise impossible in rivers. Moreover, the predictability of tide amplitude allows to target surveys large events. Finally, the hydro-sedimentary processes and peak flow velocities in excess of 2 m/s in mega-tidal estuaries (e.g. Mont Saint Michel (MSM) bay) allow to explore conditions that are similar to river during flood conditions. This has motivated a 3 years study of a sinuous tidal channel located on the fringe of the marsh with the aim to understand its dynamics at daily to annual scales. We have acquired 36 high resolution topographic surveys with TLS, whose 13 daily surveys were acquired during annual largest tides. A local reference network of targets is used to yield a high registration accuracy with uncertainty varying between 1.5 mm and 3.4 mm. We use the CANUPO algorithm for classifying riparian vegetation and ground in 3D data, and use the point cloud comparison algorithm M3C2 to resolve 3D topographic changes down to 5 mm. ADCP, ADV and a turbidimeter were installed to constrain flow velocities and suspended sediment concentration (SSC). Our analysis is focused on three active compartments: (1) the inner bar on which riparian pioneer vegetation is developing and where sedimentation reaches up to 5 cm/tide; (2) the actively eroding outer bank which exhibits local retreat rates up to 2 m/tide; (3) the channel itself for which we document fluctuations of up to 0.2 m in elevation at daily to monthly timescales. We find that High Water Level (HWL) is a good predictor of the mean rate of evolution of these compartments with different empirical relationships. Spatially averaged sedimentation on the inner bend tends to increase linearly with HWL and is increased by a

    Full Text Available O modelo narrativo em psicopatologia e psicoterapia, com dinamismo crescente desde a proposta inicial de White e Epston (1990, afirma-se como crítica “discursiva” não somente das categorias de diagnóstico psicopatológico, mas também da assimetria cognitiva e prática na relação psicoterapêutica. Neste artigo, examinamos os fundamentos epistemológicos desse modelo, recorrendo a Michel Foucault para examinar os processos simbólicos de criação narrativa da subjetividade.

  14. Advantages of the WRAIR whole blood cholinesterase assay: comparative analysis to the micro-Ellman, Test-mate ChE, and Michel (DeltapH) assays.

    Red blood cell AChE (RBC-AChE) and plasma BChE can be used as sensitive biomarkers to detect exposure to OP nerve agents, pesticides, and cholinergic drugs. In a comparative study, RBC-AChE and serum BChE activities in whole blood was obtained from forty seven healthy male and female human volunteers, and then exposed separately ex vivo to three OP nerve agents (soman (GD), sarin (GB) and VX) to generate a wide range of inhibition of AChE and BChE activity (up to 90% of control). These samples were measured using four different ChE assays: (i) colorimetric microEllman (using DTNB at 412 nm), (ii) Test-mate ChE field kit (also based on the Ellman assay), (iii) Michel (delta pH), and (iv) the Walter Reed Army Institute of Research Whole Blood (WRAIR WB) cholinesterase assay. The WRAIR assay is a modified Ellman method using DTP at 324 nm (which minimizes hemoglobin interference and improves sensitivity), and determines AChE and BChE in a small whole blood sample simultaneously. Scatter plots of RBC-AChE activities were determined using the WRAIR ChE assay versus the micro-Ellman, Test-mate and Michel after exposure to varying concentrations of soman, sarin and VX. Regression analyses yielded mostly linear relationships with high correlations (r2 = 0.83-0.93) for RBC-AChE values in the WRAIR assay compared to the alternate methods. For the plasma BChE measurements, individual human values were significantly more variable (as expected), resulting in lower correlations using WRAIR ChE versus the alternate assays (r2 values 0.5 - 0.6). To circumvent the limitations of simple correlation analysis, Bland and Altman analysis for comparing two independent measurement techniques was performed. For example, a Bland and Altman plot of the ratio of the WRAIR whole blood AChE and Michel AChE (plotted on the y-axis) vs. the average of the two methods (x-axis) shows that the majority of the individual AChE values are within +/- 1.96 S.D. of the mean difference, indicating that the

    Full Text Available Trata-se de compreender o projeto em História da Loucura na Idade Clássica [1961] como um élan à trajetória intelectual de Foucault, a qual problematiza a racionalidade das nossas relações com o Outro da cultura ocidental, isto é, com aquele que reside historicamente no não dito. Para tanto, torna-se necessário discutir as implicações sociais a partir da oposição entre o normal e o patológico, de modo a ressaltar uma questão fundamental em sua tese de 1961, a saber: de que maneira o louco, como representante de uma das experiências limite problematizadas por Foucault, passou a ser concebido como o Outro a ser recusado pela racionalidade ocidental. Desse modo, por meio de sua análise histórico- filosófica e da demonstração da crescente subordinação da loucura à razão – a partir da qual se torna possível a emergência da loucura e de suas redes de controle social –, trata-se de evidenciar de que modo o homem, como um objeto fictício de si, aparece como uma problematização já em seus primeiros escritos. Às voltas com as embrionárias reflexões e problematizações das (não relações que se tem com os saberes sujeitados da cultura ocidental, confere-se a contribuição de Michel Foucault à filosofia contemporânea, em sua tarefa crítica do pensamento que implica a arte de não ser governado pela verdade em sentido a-histórico.

    Full Text Available Dans maintes exégèses récentes des textes de Michel Foucault, sont sans doute négligés la place et les effets théoriques d’une étape particulière de sa pensée, celle qui croise ce que l’on peut appeler « les années 68 ». Le présent article tente d’aborder cette question en s’appuyant sur une attention à la chronologie précise et systématique des écrits et des différentes formes d’interventions de Foucault durant cette période (et durant les années qui suivent dès lors que les passages évoqués peuvent être analysés, tout ou partie, comme des « effets » de ces années-là. Au contraire, la philosophie définie à ce moment-là par Foucault comme une « espèce de journalisme radical » permet de refuser l’attitude des intellectuels–prophètes dans la mesure même où il n’existe pas de philosophie conservatrice ou de philosophie révolutionnaire mais des outils que la philosophie fournit et dont chacun fait l’usage qui lui semble bon. Au fil des années, un réseau de plus en plus dense se mit en place pour penser l’inscription du travail de la pensée dans le présent. Cette tâche peut même remettre en cause l’écriture ou la réorienter radicalement : on en trouve une illustration lors de la constitution du GIP (Groupe information sur les prisons, en 1971.

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Inga Litvinavičienė

    2010-01-01

    Full Text Available L’article vise à élucider l’intertextualité dans l’oeuvre de Michel Houellebecq où on retrouve plusieurs traces des textes antérieurs. L’écrivain se dit le grand lecteur qui n’hésite pas d’interpréter, critiquer, polémiquer avec ses prédécesseurs. L’analyse proposée met l’ac­cent sur les liens intertextuels avec Balzac, Baudelaire et Schopenhauer qui s’avèrent très importants dans la compréhension de l’oeuvre houellebecquienne.Balzac et Houellebecq se rejoignent sur la conception « zoologique » de l’être humain. Ce côté animalier est présenté chez Houellebecq comme déterminé par la structure physiologique et psychi­que de l’homme. Les deux auteurs ont également la vision pareille sur la société, son déclin, la tyrannie de l’argent. Les personnages houellebecquiens évo­quent parfois, dans leurs propos, les êtres fictifs de la Comédie Humaine, tissant ainsi les parallélismes éloquents des vies.Dans les textes houellebecquiens on retrouve également l’influence baudelairienne qui se voit dans les motifs de la solitude, de la souffrance, de l’ennui, dans le sentiment de l’étrangeté. Cette thématique du spleen rejoigne celle de l’idéal qui prend de la confi­guration dans la possibilité de la création du monde nouveau, dépourvu de la souffrance humaine.Les oeuvres houellebecquiennes sont surtout im­prégnées des idées de Schopenhauer exposées dans son livre Le Monde comme volonté et comme repré­sentation. Schopenhauer est considéré par Houel­lebecq comme le maître spirituel. Les deux auteurs partagent la vision pessimiste, voire nihiliste du monde, centrée sur la prédominance de la souffran­ce. Le concept schopenhauerien de la volonté révèle l’origine d’un manque que les humains ne peuvent jamais satisfaire. Ce manque-là est bien présent chez Houellebecq dont les personnages sont constamment terrorisés par les désirs contradictoires, porteurs de la d

  1. The publics and the government of life in social networks

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Saulo Mota

    2012-04-01

    Full Text Available The goal of this study is an analysis of the relationship between the publics, analyzed by Gabriel Tarde and the government of practices of life, studied by Michel Foucault in the context of social networks, making a comparison between the practices of this kind of social grouping in the early twentieth century with its update in the social networks context in the twenty-first century. Initially we investigate the relationship between a private company with its public, identifying the salient elements of the first moments of this type of social grouping. Then the practices of control of life are identified in the context of the early twentieth century and then their transformation in the context of the social networks. The conclusion points out how the publics have become components of the government of life in the context of social networks in their articulation with contemporary neoliberalism.

    Among the mummies preserved in the Basilica of San Domenico Maggiore in Naples, there are the bodies of the wife and three children of Jean Antoine Michel Agar, Minister of Finance of Naple's Kingdom during the Monarchy of Joachim Murat (1808-1815). Between 1983 and 1987 paleopathological analyses were performed; in particular, X-ray examination allowed investigation of the health status of the Agar family members and reconstruction of the embalming processes used to preserve the bodies. In addition, an analysis of the historical and archival documents was carried out, to formulate hypotheses about the causes of death, demonstrating how these sources could become important instruments to obtain diagnoses and pathological histories.

    Factor D (FD), which is also known as adipsin, is regarded as the first-acting protease of the alternative pathway (AP) of complement. It has been suggested that FD is secreted as a mature enzyme that does not require subsequent activation. This view was challenged when it was shown that mice...... lacking mannose-binding lectin (MBL)-associated serine protease-1 (MASP-1) and MASP-3 contain zymogenic FD (pro-FD), and it is becoming evident that MASP-3 is implicated in pro-FD maturation.

    2012-01-01

    narrating this case, the present article intends to establish a connection with Foucault’s ideas on Biopower. Biopower has begun with the advent of capitalism and a health and medical system designed to control diseases and information, promote public hygiene and sanitation. Imbued with such role, medicine starts to take control over the population’s use of the bodies and the health care maintenance. Other ideas discussed here are the motives behind Tuskegee, emphasized by Foucault, as the usage of power and the function of death in a political system that is centered on Biopower. The term racism, used by Foucault, includes difference in races or color, media-imposed beauty and intellectual standards, social and economic differences, exclusion, imprisonment, abandonment. The differences between relations of power and of constraint according to Foucault’s view are also discussed. For him, there is no balance of power without resistance. However, wherever there is domination, resistance becomes inoperative. Español La experimentación de nuevos tratamientos y medicaciones se vale de los seres humanos como cobayas desde que ellos se dieron cuenta de que eso podría colaborar para un perfeccionamiento de las condiciones de vida.

Luego de la descripción del mismo, este artículo busca hacer una conexión con los trabajos sobre el biopoder, de Michel Foucault.

Encargada de ese rol, la medicina ejerce un control del uso del cuerpo y el mantenimiento de la salud de la poblaci

Na atualidade o uso dos documentos e de arquivos para criminalizar, encarcerar e segregar os desviantes sociais é uma prática cotidiana, e funciona pelo dispositivo de confissão nas adjacências do Poder Judiciário, operando as noções de risco e perigo, em termos de biopolítica. Já a escrita disciplinar aciona a constituição de casos e dossiês, por meio dos exames, das observações vigilantes e da sanção normalizadora, em uma microeconomia penal. é relevante criticar essas práticas e pensar campos de possibilidade de resistência a essas escritas de uma memória das infâmias na judicialização da vida.

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Agnes Lugo-Ortiz

    2012-08-01

    Full Text Available This article explores one of the most incidental, and thus least studied, equivocations in Michel Foucault's work: his understan-ding of slavery in relation to his conceptualizations of power, domination, resistance and freedom. The article also considers the heuristic value of these equivocations for thinking about the regimes of the large slave plantations of the Americas. Does slavery describe a relation of power or a state of domination? What distinct analytical and ethical implications would this distinction have upon examining the problem of freedom under subjugation? Through a careful exegesis of two late instances in the work of the French thinker, "Subject and power" (1982 and "The ethics of care of the self as a practice of freedom" (1984, this article identifies the conceptual ambiguities that accompany his brief observations on slavery, and takes them as a starting point for highlighting a series of moments in which games of power during the period of slavery in the Americas show the limits that were intuited, yet not theorized, by Foucault; limits which are no other than extreme violence and death. This is exemplified through a discussion of certain paradoxes in the phenomena of the fugitive slaves (cimarronaje and of the aporias, that were manifested through the uses of the Christian pastoral as a means of subjection at the beginnings of the Cuban slave plantations during the 18th century - and in dialogue with their symbolization in art.

    Full Text Available En el contexto de su crítica a la fenomenomenología husserliana Michel Henry apela a la caracterización de los errores de la perspectiva hetero-afectiva remitiéndose a sus orígenes en la tradición sintetizados en los parámetros de la “gnosis griega” y su compromiso con la racionalidad entendida como comprensión de “objetos puestos a distancia”. La revisión de los alcances de esta categoría revela, sin embargo, que existen tratamientos en el pensamiento griego que apelan a la auto-afección y la inmanencia para dar cuenta de elementos que exceden la dimensión ek-stática. En este trabajo se revisa el planteo henryano para mostrar sus puntos de contacto con el estoicismo, especialmente a partir de la teoría de Hierocles a propósito de la oikeîosis. Este recorrido permitirá sugerir que entre ambos planteos existe una compatibilidad estructural que hace posible apelar a claves de interpretación similares para dar cuenta de la convivencia de mecanismos de explicación que apelan a lo auto-afectivo y lo hétero-afectivo en un conjunto coherente.

    Full Text Available The modern Geomatics techniques, such as Terrestrial Laser Scanner (TLS and multi-view Structure from Motion (SfM, are gaining more and more interest in the Cultural Heritage field. All the data acquired with these technologies could be stored and managed together with other information in a Historical Building Information Model (HBIM. In this paper, it will be shown the case study of the San Michele in Acerboli’s church, located in Santarcangelo di Romagna, Italy. This church, dated about the 6th century A.D., represents a high relevant Romanic building of the high Medieval period. The building presents an irregular square plan with a different length of the lateral brick walls and a consequential oblique one in correspondence of the apse. Nevertheless, the different lengths of the lateral brick walls are balanced thanks to the irregular spaces between the windows. Different changes occurred during the centuries, such as the closing of the seven main doors and the building of the bell tower, in the 11th century A.D., which is nowadays the main entrance of the church. An integrated survey was realized, covering the exterior and the interior. The final 3D model represents a valid support not only for documentation, but also to maintain and manage in an integrate approach the available knowledge of this Cultural Heritage site, developing a HBIM system in which all the mentioned historical, geometrical, material matters are collected.

    Transgenic banana (Musa acuminata 'Gros Michel') integrating either of two rice chitinase genes was generated and its resistance to Black Leaf Streak disease caused by the fungus Mycosphaerella fijiensis was tested using a leaf disk bioassay. PCR screening indicated the presence of the hpt selectable marker gene in more than 90 % of the lines tested, whereas more than three quarters of the lines contained the linked rice chitinase gene resulting in a co-transformation frequency of at least 71.4 %. Further, a unique stable integration of the transgenes in each line revealed some false negative PCR results and the expected co-transformation frequency of 100 %. The transgene insert number per line ranged from 1 to 5 and single transgene insert lines (25 % of all) were identified. Considerable delay in disease development (up to 63 days post-incoculation) over a monitoring period of 108 days occurred in nine lines with extracellularly targeted chitinase out of 17 transgenic lines tested and their necrotic leaf area decreased by 73-94 % compared to the untransformed susceptible control line. Finally, correlation between symptom development and rice chitinase expression was confirmed in two lines by Western analysis. The potential of rice chitinase genes to enhance resistance against M. fijiensis in banana was demonstrated as well as the usefulness of the leaf disk bioassay for early disease screening in transgenic banana lines.

    Full Text Available Como parte da pesquisa "Michel Foucault no Brasil: presença, efeitos e ressonâncias", são focalizados os modos como o filósofo apareceu seja na grande imprensa, seja na imprensa alternativa, durante sua visita ao Brasil no ano de 1975 e, mais brevemente, no de 1976. No primeiro caso, especial destaque é dado à conduta de Foucault quando do assassinato do jornalista Vladimir Herzog nos porões da ditadura militar. No segundo, à vigilância exercida sobre o filósofo pelos serviços de informação, bem como à participação da imprensa alternativa, notadamente a anarquista, na divulgação de suas conferências e ideias. Embora Foucault nunca tenha escrito um trabalho específico sobre a imprensa, sua concepção de filosofia como jornalismo radical é posta em correlação com tais ocorrências, numa tentativa de articular narrativa histórica e crítica do presente.

  6. From the "metaphysics of the individual" to the critique of society: on the practical significance of Michel Henry's phenomenology of life.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Staudigl, Michael

    This essay explores the practical significance of Michel Henry's "material phenomenology." Commencing with an exposition of his most basic philosophical intuition, i.e., his insight that transcendental affectivity is the primordial mode of revelation of our selfhood, the essay then brings to light how this intuition also establishes our relation to both the world and others. Animated by a radical form of the phenomenological reduction, Henry's material phenomenology brackets the exterior world in a bid to reach the concrete interior transcendental experience at the base of all exteriority. The essay argues that this "counter reduction," designed as a practical orientation to the world, suspends all traditional parameters of onto(theo)logical individuation in order to rethink subjectivity in terms of its transcendental corporeality, i.e., in terms of the invisible display of "affective flesh." The development of this "metaphysics of the individual" anchors his "practical philosophy" as he developed it-under shifting accents-throughout his oeuvre. In particular, the essay brings into focus Henry's reflections on modernity, the industry of mass culture and their "barbaric" movements. The essay briefly puts these cultural and political areas of Henry's of thinking into contact with his late "theological turn," i.e., his Christological account of Life and the (inter)subjective self-realization to which it gives rise.

    Full Text Available A partir da década de 90 do século passado, as idéias divulgadas por Michel Bréal — lingüista francês conhecido por ter criado os termos semântica e polissemia - têm sido retomadas com o intuito de evidenciar sua importância nos campos da Pragmática, da Semântica Cognitiva e dos estudos da enunciação. Este artigo evidencia possíveis contribuições de suas propostas para a Semântica Lexical e para a Pragmática. Num primeiro momento, alguns de seus postulados são analisados e relacionados às citadas disciplinas.Em seguida, a teoria apresentada é aplicada à análise de dois textos jornalísticos de modo a mostrar a aplicabilidade de suas idéias e fornecer evidência de que a semântica brealina pode funcionar como um denominador comum para as ciências do significado.

    Fernando de Almeida Silveira

    2009-03-01

    Full Text Available A obra de Michel Foucault destaca o corpo, “interpenetrado de história”, enquanto expressão das forças de poder e de saber, que se articulam estrategicamente, na história da sociedade ocidental. Na medida em que “o poder é um produtor de individualidade e que o indivíduo é uma produção do poder e do saber”, o corpo é uma peça dentro de um jogo de dominações e de submissões, presente em toda a rede social, no processo histórico de produção da subjetividade. Esta pesquisa analisa a dimensão onírica na genealogia de Foucault e visa verificar os efeitos históricos do poder e do saber na construção do imaginário subjetivo, através do corpo, em uma relação recíproca entre o campo da Psicologia e da Filosofia.

    Full Text Available Este artículo tiene el propósito de configurar un posible horizonte de la difusión del pensamiento de Michel Foucault en la literatura educacional brasileña, por medio de la focalización de dos grandes frentes de escritura: los libros y los artículos divulgados en 15 periódicos del área, en el período entre 1990 y 2012. En el segundo caso, punto crucial de la investigación, se han seleccionado 132 artículos que tomaron el pensamiento de Foucault como modo de trabajo y cuyo análisis se ha hecho teniendo en cuenta frecuencia y cronología; filiación institucional de los autores, como también el rol de los más asiduos; las obras de Foucault más referidas; las temáticas e los tópicos teóricos más visitados; y por fin, los tipos investigativos empleados en las argumentaciones. Las reflexiones finales del artículo señalan la exigencia de poner en perspectiva, más allá de la difusión, los múltiples modos de apropiación de las ideas del pensador en el campo educacional brasileño y, por consiguiente, la diversidad de efectos que resulta de ellos.

    Full Text Available A sociologia desenvolvida no campo de estudos da pós-modernidade ergue-se com grandes provocações ao campo de estudos de religião, esse classicamente determinado pelo trio moderno Marx, Durkheim e Weber. O pensador Michel Maffesoli, sociólogo francês estudioso do imaginário e do cotidiano, mostra como o espírito pós-moderno de diluição, desconstrução e quebra de paradigmas pervade todas as dimensões da vida contemporânea, inclusive formatando o jeito de crer e a forma de entender o religioso. A partir daí, os estudos do religioso – especialmente Teologia, Ciências da Religião e Ensino Religioso – reelaboram seus conceitos modernos, reestruturando seu campo a partir de novas categorias de análise da sociedade propostas por Maffesoli: Sociedade Neotribal, Associação pelo Desejo-de-estar-juntos, Processos de indentificação, Homeopatia do mal, Efeito de composição, entre outros.

    Francisco Abril

    2015-06-01

    Full Text Available En el presente trabajo abordo la interpretación que Axel Honneth realiza, en su libro Crítica del poder, de la propuesta de Michel Foucault. Honneth señala, a modo de crítica, la existencia de una contradicción entre lo que denomina la teoría del poder de Foucault y sus estudios históricos –en particular, los reunidos en Vigilar y Castigar–. Uno de mis objetivos es explicar esta contradicción y, a partir de ella, proponer una lectura alternativa. En contraposición a Honneth, para quien las instituciones disciplinarias que analiza Foucault terminarían desplazando la acción y la lucha social, intento mostrar –y este es el aporte que busco realizar en el trabajo a partir de una reconstrucción conceptual– que las disciplinas y por añadidura las instituciones disciplinarias deben considerarse tácticas que nunca alcanzan del todo su objetivo. Son tácticas que no logran bloquear, de manera definitiva, las expresiones de resistencia y conflictividad. Esta lectura alternativa que aquí propongo permitiría, en principio, ensayar al menos dos puntos de contacto entre Foucault y la teoría crítica que aún no han sido elucidados.

    In order to constrain the shallow structure of the Earth in global tomography, Love and Rayleigh waves are often used. However these waves are mostly sensitive to the S wave velocity structure. P-wave energy is either evanescent, or leaking away at every surface reflection that generates an S wave which travels much deeper into the mantle. For that reason, to study the shallow P velocity structure of the Earth, we need to study P-waves at regional distances if a good seismic station coverage is available. Otherwise we can use multiple P reflections at teleseismic distance when regional data are not available (as in the oceans for instance). The major aim of this work was first of all to ensure that these multiply reflected P waves can adequately be observed in real data and also to investigate how many reflections at the surface these reflected waves can still be seen and to investigate how strongly the amplitude of multiply reflected P diminishes because of energy loss into S waves. For this study we are comparing the synthetic predictions computed with a Spectral Element Method for a spherically symmetric earth (Nissen-Meyer et al, 2007) with observed data. We used 150 events recorded (26575 seismograms) from the dense network of US ARRAY, which allows us to make a very large number of observations. Our study shows that three times reflected PPP waves are very well observed for epicentral distances > 60 degrees and for events with Mw 90 degrees.

Palavras-chave: Michel Onfray; Comte-Sponville; ateísmo; neoateísmo; naturalismo.  Abstract Michel Onfray and André Comte-Sponville are the most famous representatives of philosophical contemporary French atheism, which is a continuation of a tradition begun in the 18th Century of irreligious denying of the monotheistic notion of God. Although sharing many ideas, like naturalism and, obviously, the rejection of the monotheistic conception of God, their proposals show important distinctions. Onfray blames on religion most of evils faced by humanity, refusing to make any concession to monotheism, and proposing a libertarian, hedonistic, materialistic philosophy.

    Purpose To further our insight into the role of networks in health system reform, the purpose of this paper is to investigate how one agency, the NSW Agency for Clinical Innovation (ACI), and the multiple networks and enabling resources that it encompasses, govern, manage and extend the potential of networks for healthcare practice improvement. Design/methodology/approach This is a case study investigation which took place over ten months through the first author's participation in network activities and discussions with the agency's staff about their main objectives, challenges and achievements, and with selected services around the state of New South Wales to understand the agency's implementation and large system transformation activities. Findings The paper demonstrates that ACI accommodates multiple networks whose oversight structures, self-organisation and systems change approaches combined in dynamic ways, effectively yield a diversity of network governances. Further, ACI bears out a paradox of "centralised decentralisation", co-locating agents of innovation with networks of implementation and evaluation expertise. This arrangement strengthens and legitimates the role of the strategic hybrid - the healthcare professional in pursuit of change and improvement, and enhances their influence and impact on the wider system. Research limitations/implications While focussing the case study on one agency only, this study is unique as it highlights inter-network connections. Contributing to the literature on network governance, this paper identifies ACI as a "network of networks" through which resources, expectations and stakeholder dynamics are dynamically and flexibly mediated and enhanced. Practical implications The co-location of and dynamic interaction among clinical networks may create synergies among networks, nurture "strategic hybrids", and enhance the impact of network activities on health system reform. Social implications Network governance requires more

    Full Text Available This study aims at delineating the aspects of fashion in contemporary times under a bias of communication. It is a search to identify, through the images that circulate on social networks, the characteristics that may distinguish the contemporary fashion circumscribed to the so called postmodernity. Therefore, we performed a bibliographic research in order to understand the concepts of post modernity. Among the authors studied, we chose to follow the pathways taken by the French sociologist Michel Maffesoli, since his ideas about post modernity are the key to explain the contemporary fashion in post modernity. The corpus of this study consists of images extracted from a social network of fashion image sharing: Lookbook.nu: Collective Fashion Consciousness. We believe that these images are loaded with information that might explain fashion in post modernity, and contribute to discussions about the creation of bonds enabled by the circulation of these imagery elements.

    Full Text Available The aim of this article is to shed light on contemporary forensic psychiatric care through a philosophical examination of the empirical results from two lifeworld phenomenological studies from the perspective of patients and carers, by using the French philosopher Michel Foucault's historical–philosophical work. Both empirical studies were conducted in a forensic psychiatric setting. The essential results of the two empirical studies were reexamined in a phenomenological meaning analysis to form a new general structure in accordance with the methodological principles of Reflective Lifeworld Research. This general structure shows how the caring on the forensic psychiatric wards appears to be contradictory, in that it is characterized by an unreflective (non-caring attitude and contributes to an inconsistent and insecure existence. The caring appears to have a corrective approach and thus lacks a clear caring structure, a basic caring approach that patients in forensic psychiatric services have a great need of. To gain a greater understanding of forensic psychiatric caring, the new empirical results were further examined in the light of Foucault's historical–philosophical work. The philosophical examination is presented in terms of the three meaning constituents: Caring as correction and discipline, The existence of power, and Structures and culture in care. The philosophical examination illustrates new meaning nuances of the corrective and disciplinary nature of forensic psychiatric care, its power, and how this is materialized in caring, and what this does to the patients. The examination reveals embedded difficulties in forensic psychiatric care and highlights a need to revisit the aim of such care.

    This article discusses Michel Foucault's main writings on "madness and psychiatry" from his early works up to the 1970s. On the one hand, we reconstruct the overall theoretical and methodological development of his positions over the course of the different periods in his oeuvre. On the other hand, we also take a closer look at Foucault's philosophical considerations regarding the subjects of his investigations. After an initial introduction of our conceptual approach, we draw on the most recent research on Foucault to show to what extent the phenomenological description of the topic at hand and the historical-critical perspective that are reflected in his early writings of 1954 (the Introduction to Binswanger's Dream and Existence and Mental Illness and Personality) laid the ground for his later work. Moving on to Foucault's work during the 1960s, we look at the core features and methodological bases of his 1961 classic Folie et déraison (History of Madness). His propositions regarding the "absence of madness" in modernity are conceptualized as an inherently contradictory attempt to liberate the topic under study from the common assumptions at that time. We then situate his 1973/74 lectures on Psychiatric Power in the context of his shift towards analyzing the dynamics of power and highlight the renewed shift of focus in his statements on the "productivity" of madness as an effect of power. Finally, we sum up our critique by taking into account the history of the reception of Foucault's writings and ask about their potential significance for the contemporary philosophy and history of psychiatry.

  4. Biopolíticas da saúde: reflexões a partir de Michel Foucault, Agnes Heller e Hannah Arendt

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Francisco Ortega

    Full Text Available O objetivo deste artigo é oferecer ferramentas conceituais que possam ajudar na reflexão acerca da questão das biopolíticas da saúde a partir da obra de Michel Foucault, Agnes Heller e Hannah Arendt. Para Foucault, desde o século XVIII, a vida biológica e a saúde da nação tornaram-se alvos fundamentais de um poder sobre a vida que enfatizava especialmente as noções de sexualidade, raça e degenerescência, cujo objetivo era a otimização da qualidade biológica das populações. Para Arendt, esse movimento de politização da vida é profundamente antipolítico. A vida passa a ocupar o vazio deixado pela decomposição do âmbito público. No caso de Agnes Heller, o antipolitismo do discurso biopolítico se manifesta na procura constante de legitimação quase científica. O pensamento de raça, gênero, saúde é um pensamento científico imitado que substitui a opinião pela verdade. Se a política é o campo do confronto das opiniões, do diálogo, da iniciativa, do novo, da espontaneidade e da ação em liberdade, o pensamento biopolítico legitimado cientificamente é o espaço da verdade, da certeza, da necessidade, do determinismo e da causalidade, no qual o diálogo é substituído por uma política da autoclausura, de amigos e inimigos, e a pluralidade de opiniões é reduzida a uma única opinião politicamente correta.

    The aim of this article is to shed light on contemporary forensic psychiatric care through a philosophical examination of the empirical results from two lifeworld phenomenological studies from the perspective of patients and carers, by using the French philosopher Michel Foucault's historical-philosophical work. Both empirical studies were conducted in a forensic psychiatric setting. The essential results of the two empirical studies were reexamined in a phenomenological meaning analysis to form a new general structure in accordance with the methodological principles of Reflective Lifeworld Research. This general structure shows how the caring on the forensic psychiatric wards appears to be contradictory, in that it is characterized by an unreflective (non-)caring attitude and contributes to an inconsistent and insecure existence. The caring appears to have a corrective approach and thus lacks a clear caring structure, a basic caring approach that patients in forensic psychiatric services have a great need of. To gain a greater understanding of forensic psychiatric caring, the new empirical results were further examined in the light of Foucault's historical-philosophical work. The philosophical examination is presented in terms of the three meaning constituents: Caring as correction and discipline, The existence of power, and Structures and culture in care. The philosophical examination illustrates new meaning nuances of the corrective and disciplinary nature of forensic psychiatric care, its power, and how this is materialized in caring, and what this does to the patients. The examination reveals embedded difficulties in forensic psychiatric care and highlights a need to revisit the aim of such care.

  6. Biopolíticas da saúde: reflexões a partir de Michel Foucault, Agnes Heller e Hannah Arendt

    2004-02-01

    Full Text Available O objetivo deste artigo é oferecer ferramentas conceituais que possam ajudar na reflexão acerca da questão das biopolíticas da saúde a partir da obra de Michel Foucault, Agnes Heller e Hannah Arendt. Para Foucault, desde o século XVIII, a vida biológica e a saúde da nação tornaram-se alvos fundamentais de um poder sobre a vida que enfatizava especialmente as noções de sexualidade, raça e degenerescência, cujo objetivo era a otimização da qualidade biológica das populações. Para Arendt, esse movimento de politização da vida é profundamente antipolítico. A vida passa a ocupar o vazio deixado pela decomposição do âmbito público. No caso de Agnes Heller, o antipolitismo do discurso biopolítico se manifesta na procura constante de legitimação quase científica. O pensamento de raça, gênero, saúde é um pensamento científico imitado que substitui a opinião pela verdade. Se a política é o campo do confronto das opiniões, do diálogo, da iniciativa, do novo, da espontaneidade e da ação em liberdade, o pensamento biopolítico legitimado cientificamente é o espaço da verdade, da certeza, da necessidade, do determinismo e da causalidade, no qual o diálogo é substituído por uma política da autoclausura, de amigos e inimigos, e a pluralidade de opiniões é reduzida a uma única opinião politicamente correta.

    Full Text Available O objetivo deste artigo é, partindo das ponderações de Pierre Bourdieu acerca da importância do estudo das condições sociais da circulação internacional de ideias, fazer uma sociologia histórica da circulação e da recepção do livro Sociologia dos partidos políticos, de Robert Michels. Toma-se como foco a passagem de Michels e de seu livro pelos Estados Unidos, procurando mostrar como consolidou-se a partir daí uma forma de leitura do texto e uma representação do autor que é hoje predominante e que está na base da sua celebração e da sua consagração como um clássico da Ciência Política. Para tanto, faz-se uma comparação sistemática de diferentes edições e traduções do livro, bem como de resenhas que dele foram produzidas, procurando identificar distintas leituras feitas ao longo do tempo, associando-as com elementos da trajetória biográfica do autor, bem como com a história das Ciências Sociais nos Estados Unidos e, em particular, com a história da Ciência Política nesse país. De um autor pessimista em relação à democracia, ou mesmo com um viés antidemocrático, associado ao fascismo, Michels foi sendo visto no pós-Guerra como um pensador realista e suas teses como base para a formulação de uma noção de democracia identificada com o pluralismo liberal.

    Full Text Available Colombia carece de valores de referencia autóctonos para colinesterasas plasmáticas (EC 3.1.1.8. El objetivo de este trabajo fue establecer valores de referencia para la población laboral activa afiliada al Seguro Social. Se diseñaron estadísticamente dos muestras, epidemiológicamente representativas de las poblaciones laborales activas del Valle de Aburrá y del cercano oriente antioqueño. Se midió la actividad colinesterásica plasmática por tres métodos (Michel, EQM® y Monotest® en 415 personas en Aburrá y 412 en Oriente, con edad entre 18 y 49 años. Los promedios de actividad enzimática son estadísticamente similares por región, tanto con el método de Michel como con EQM (Michel: Aburrá, 1,111, y Oriente, 1,125 deltas de pH/hora; EQM: Aburrá, 2,546, y Oriente, 2,476 U/ml. Con Monotest, la media es estadísticamente mayor en Aburrá que en Oriente (5743 y 5459 U/L; p=0,0117. En las dos regiones y con cada método, los hombres tienen niveles de actividad enzimática estadísticamente mayores que las mujeres. Al estratificar por región y sexo, se comprueba que la edad no ejerce influencia significativa en la actividad colinesterásica plasmática, cualquiera que sea el método químico de medición. Nuestros valores son estadísticamente diferentes de los datos extranjeros: con Michel y Monotest, los niveles nuestros son superiores y con EQM son inferiores. Con base en los hallazgos, su interpretación y sus repercusiones, se piensa que estos valores debieran considerarse con prioridad, frente a los foráneos, para la toma de decisiones clínicas y epidemiológicas en el país.

  18. Putting Gino's lesson to work: Actor-network theory, enacted humanity, and rehabilitation.

    Abrams, Thomas; Gibson, Barbara E

    2016-02-01

    This article argues that rehabilitation enacts a particular understanding of "the human" throughout therapeutic assessment and treatment. Following Michel Callon and Vololona Rabeharisoa's "Gino's Lesson on Humanity," we suggest that this is not simply a top-down process, but is cultivated in the application and response to biomedical frameworks of human ability, competence, and responsibility. The emergence of the human is at once a materially contingent, moral, and interpersonal process. We begin the article by outlining the basics of the actor-network theory that underpins "Gino's Lesson on Humanity." Next, we elucidate its central thesis regarding how disabled personhood emerges through actor-network interactions. Section "Learning Gino's lesson" draws on two autobiographical examples, examining the emergence of humanity through rehabilitation, particularly assessment measures and the responses to them. We conclude by thinking about how rehabilitation and actor-network theory might take this lesson on humanity seriously. © The Author(s) 2016.

Declarative networking proposes the use of a declarative query language for specifying and implementing network protocols, and employs a dataflow framework at runtime for communication and maintenance of network state. The primary goal of declarative networking is to greatly simplify the process of specifying, implementing, deploying and evolving a network design. In addition, decla

    Prediction and control of the dynamics of complex networks is a central problem in network science. Structural and dynamical similarities of different real networks suggest that some universal laws might accurately describe the dynamics of these networks, albeit the nature and common origin of such laws remain elusive. Here we show that the causal network representing the large-scale structure of spacetime in our accelerating universe is a power-law graph with strong clustering, similar to many complex networks such as the Internet, social, or biological networks. We prove that this structural similarity is a consequence of the asymptotic equivalence between the large-scale growth dynamics of complex networks and causal networks. This equivalence suggests that unexpectedly similar laws govern the dynamics of complex networks and spacetime in the universe, with implications to network science and cosmology.

    2016-01-01

    This volume provides an introduction to and overview of the emerging field of interconnected networks which include multi layer or multiplex networks, as well as networks of networks. Such networks present structural and dynamical features quite different from those observed in isolated networks. The presence of links between different networks or layers of a network typically alters the way such interconnected networks behave – understanding the role of interconnecting links is therefore a crucial step towards a more accurate description of real-world systems. While examples of such dissimilar properties are becoming more abundant – for example regarding diffusion, robustness and competition – the root of such differences remains to be elucidated. Each chapter in this topical collection is self-contained and can be read on its own, thus making it also suitable as reference for experienced researchers wishing to focus on a particular topic.

    Full Text Available The article discusses the resonance of Michel Ragon’s concept of prospective architecture in Czechoslovakia by taking the group VAL (Voies et Aspects du Lendemain as an example. The article focuses not only on the similarities, but also on the divergences between the concept of prospective architecture defined in France and VAL’s projects from the 1970s. The article will try to reveal parallels between the VAL’s definition of architecture as a result of a game and a way to anticipate the new society, and the approach of architects and groups active in France as the Utopia, or the Internationale Situationniste. In conclusion, the text will emphasize the specificity of VAL’s projects, inseparably linked to the context of Czechoslovakia during the period of Normalization, and stress its heterogeneous character linking them more closely to the postmodern architecture.

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Candiotto, Cesar

    2015-01-01

    Full Text Available O artigo tem como objeto principal o curso de Michel Foucault no Collège de France, Subjectivité et vérité, ministrado em 1980-1981 e editado em 2014. Pretende-se mostrar de que maneira e mediante quais argumentos Foucault chega à afirmação de que a relação entre sujeito e verdade na experiência antiga dos aphrodisia é da ordem da incompatibilidade. Na pederastia grega os atos sexuais e seus prazeres foram considerados obstáculos para o acesso à verdade e para a constituição do sujeito ativo. No entanto, o confisco da experiência sexual legítima no interior da reconfiguração do matrimônio romano, bem como a suspeita crescente em torno dos atos e prazeres, provocaram dois processos: a subjetivação dos aphrodisia, o que resultou em uma relação constante do sujeito com sua experiência sexual; e a objetivação do desejo, no sentido de que ele deixa de ser somente um elemento intempestivo e incontrolável situado ao lado da natureza, passando a ser algo problemático e objeto de conhecimento. Ainda que na Introdução aos dois últimos livros de Histoire de la sexualité Foucault escreva que pretende fazer a história do homem de desejo na cultura pagã antiga, o artigo sugere que não é propriamente nessa formação histórica que pode ser identificada sua emergência, e sim no monaquismo cristão dos séculos IV e V, objeto de seu livro inacabado Les confessions de la chair. Pelo menos no domínio da experiência sexual, o homem de desejo não teria surgido na erótica masculina grega ou no matrimônio romano, mas na sexualidade solitária do monaquismo cristão

    Patrick Jagoda

    2015-08-01

    Full Text Available The language of networks now describes everything from the Internet to the economy to terrorist organizations. In distinction to a common view of networks as a universal, originary, or necessary form that promises to explain everything from neural structures to online traffic, this essay emphasizes the contingency of the network imaginary. Network form, in its role as our current cultural dominant, makes scarcely imaginable the possibility of an alternative or an outside uninflected by networks. If so many things and relationships are figured as networks, however, then what is not a network? If a network points towards particular logics and qualities of relation in our historical present, what others might we envision in the future? In  many ways, these questions are unanswerable from within the contemporary moment. Instead of seeking an avant-garde approach (to move beyond networks or opting out of networks (in some cases, to recover elements of pre-networked existence, this essay proposes a third orientation: one of ambivalence that operates as a mode of extreme presence. I propose the concept of "network aesthetics," which can be tracked across artistic media and cultural forms, as a model, style, and pedagogy for approaching interconnection in the twenty-first century. The following essay is excerpted from Network Ambivalence (Forthcoming from University of Chicago Press.

    Despite substantial recent progress, our understanding of the principles and mechanisms underlying complex brain function and cognition remains incomplete. Network neuroscience proposes to tackle these enduring challenges. Approaching brain structure and function from an explicitly integrative perspective, network neuroscience pursues new ways to map, record, analyze and model the elements and interactions of neurobiological systems. Two parallel trends drive the approach: the availability of new empirical tools to create comprehensive maps and record dynamic patterns among molecules, neurons, brain areas and social systems; and the theoretical framework and computational tools of modern network science. The convergence of empirical and computational advances opens new frontiers of scientific inquiry, including network dynamics, manipulation and control of brain networks, and integration of network processes across spatiotemporal domains. We review emerging trends in network neuroscience and attempt to chart a path toward a better understanding of the brain as a multiscale networked system.

    Our dependence on networks - be they infrastructure, economic, social or others - leaves us prone to crises caused by the vulnerabilities of these networks. There is a great need to develop new methods to protect infrastructure networks and prevent cascade of failures (especially in cases of coupled networks). Terrorist attacks on transportation networks have traumatized modern societies. With a single blast, it has become possible to paralyze airline traffic, electric power supply, ground transportation or Internet communication. How, and at which cost can one restructure the network such that it will become more robust against malicious attacks? The gradual increase in attacks on the networks society depends on - Internet, mobile phone, transportation, air travel, banking, etc. - emphasize the need to develop new strategies to protect and defend these crucial networks of communication and infrastructure networks. One example is the threat of liquid explosives a few years ago, which completely shut down air travel for days, and has created extreme changes in regulations. Such threats and dangers warrant the need for new tools and strategies to defend critical infrastructure. In this paper we review recent advances in the theoretical understanding of the vulnerabilities of interdependent networks with and without spatial embedding, attack strategies and their affect on such networks of networks as well as recently developed strategies to optimize and repair failures caused by such attacks.

MÉTODOS: Se diseñaron dos muestras representativas de la población laboral activa de 18 a 59 años de edad residente en el valle de Aburrá (1 540 m sobre el nivel del mar y en el cercano oriente antioqueño (2 150 m sobre el nivel del mar. Se excluyeron los trabajadores que empleaban sustancias inhibidoras de la colinesterasa en su trabajo o en el hogar, los que presentaban alguna enfermedad que alterara los niveles de colinesterasa y los que manifestaron no contar con buena salud. Se midió la actividad de la colinesterasa eritrocitaria con los métodos de Michel y EQM® en 827 personas, 415 de Aburrá y 412 del Oriente. Las proporciones se compararon mediante la prueba de ji al cuadrado, incluida la versión de Fisher. La prueba de la t de Student para muestras independientes se utilizó para la comparación de dos promedios. Para comparar simultáneamente tres o más promedios se empleó el análisis de la varianza, seguido del análisis de rangos múltiples de Newman-Keuls (ARM-NK. Cuando las variables no tenían distribución normal o cuando las varianzas no eran homogéneas se usó el análisis de la varianza no paramétrico de Kruskal y Wallis para comparar las medianas. Se emplearon los programas SPSS 9.0, SGPlus 7.1 y EpiInfo 6.04. En todas las pruebas estadísticas se aplicó un nivel de significación P < 0,05. RESULTADOS: Los valores de actividad de la colinesterasa eritrocitaria obtenidos en esta investigación para la población estudiada mediante los dos métodos analíticos utilizados fueron: Michel: 0,857 delta de pH/hora (IC95%: 0,849 a 0,866 y EQM®: 35,21 U/g oxihemoglobina (IC95%: 34,82 a 35,60.

Os procedimentos metodológicos de investigação foram divididos em dois momentos. Primeiro, foram pesquisados os artigos publicados nos últimos dez anos nos anais de dois dos mais representativos encontros científicos da academia de administração no Brasil: o Encontro Nacional da ANPAD (EnANPAD, encontro anual, e o Encontro de Estudos Organizacionais (EnEO, que ocorre de dois em dois anos. A pesquisa foi feita nos artigos que referenciavam Michel Foucault no título ou no escopo do resumo. No que diz respeito ao número de ocorrências encontradas, os resultados obtidos totalizaram 41 artigos. Em um segundo momento, após a identificação dos artigos, estes foram lidos e analisados de forma a identificar como Michel Foucault é categorizado por cada um dos pesquisadores em questão. Os resultados obtidos na pesquisa levam a crer que as questões epistemológicas ainda não fazem parte do corpo de preocupações de grande parte dos pesquisadores brasileiros na área de administração. Tal ausência apresenta-se, ao mesmo tempo, significativa e preocupante. Significativa, porque mostra que os pesquisadores brasileiros não estão preocupados com o contexto teórico de produção e disseminação das idéias, incorporando-as como verdades em suas pesquisas de forma descontextualizada e acrítica. E preocupante, uma vez que a luta por poder no campo das idéias não significa apenas um embate em torno dos melhores postos acadêmicos, posições institucionais e governamentais de financiamento ou um lugar de destaque nos comitês editoriais dos periódicos mais influentes. O perigo reside em uma dimensão complementar e inerente a essa

    In the last decade we have seen the emergence of a new inter-disciplinary field focusing on the understanding of networks which are dynamic, large, open, and have a structure sometimes called random-biased. The field of Complex Networks is helping us better understand many complex phenomena such as the spread of  deseases, protein interactions, social relationships, to name but a few. Studies in Complex Networks are gaining attention due to some major scientific breakthroughs proposed by network scientists helping us understand and model interactions contained in large datasets. In fact, if we could point to one event leading to the widespread use of complex network analysis is the availability of online databases. Theories of Random Graphs from Erdös and Rényi from the late 1950s led us to believe that most networks had random characteristics. The work on large online datasets told us otherwise. Starting with the work of Barabási and Albert as well as Watts and Strogatz in the late 1990s, we now know th...

  18. Sentient networks

    Chapline, G.

    1998-03-01

    The engineering problems of constructing autonomous networks of sensors and data processors that can provide alerts for dangerous situations provide a new context for debating the question whether man-made systems can emulate the cognitive capabilities of the mammalian brain. In this paper we consider the question whether a distributed network of sensors and data processors can form ``perceptions`` based on sensory data. Because sensory data can have exponentially many explanations, the use of a central data processor to analyze the outputs from a large ensemble of sensors will in general introduce unacceptable latencies for responding to dangerous situations. A better idea is to use a distributed ``Helmholtz machine`` architecture in which the sensors are connected to a network of simple processors, and the collective state of the network as a whole provides an explanation for the sensory data. In general communication within such a network will require time division multiplexing, which opens the door to the possibility that with certain refinements to the Helmholtz machine architecture it may be possible to build sensor networks that exhibit a form of artificial consciousness.

  19. Parrēsia ed exemplum. La parrēsia e i regimi aleturgici dell’exemplum a partire da L’ermeneutica del soggetto di Michel Foucault

    Full Text Available Questo articolo cerca di esplorare il rapporto tra parrēsia ed exemplum negli ultimi Corsi al Collège de France di Michel Foucault. A partire da L’ermeneutica del soggetto, viene analizzato il campo semantico e pratico relativo alla direzione di coscienza stoica ed epicurea, in cui Foucault oppone la parrēsia all’adulazione e alla retorica per collocarla invece all’interno di un’importante serie di concetti: la paradosis (la trasmissione dei discorsi di verità, il kairos (il momento giusto, la circostanza opportuna e l’exemplum definito come «il cuore della parrēsia» poiché esso assicura l’adæquatio tra il soggetto di enunciazione e il soggetto di comportamento che si conforma alla verità espressa dal primo. Successivamente, viene posta l’attenzione sul legame tra parrēsia ed exemplum nell’ultimo Corso, Il coraggio della verità, per mettere in evidenza un’importante riconfigurazione all’interno della parrēsia cinica, in cui l’esempio appare come una categoria etica basata sulla permanenza e sull’identità a sé. Pertanto, esso si rivela inadeguato per questo regime aleturgico della parrēsia cinica, che invece consiste in un atteggiamento etico sperimentale, una mise à l’épreuve cui sottomettere la vita per arrivare a una trasformazione politica del mondo attraverso una continua e scandalosa provocazione degli altri, in grado di mettere in discussione la percezione di norme culturali e di abitudini consolidate.

  20. Network interruptions

    2005-01-01

    On Sunday 12 June 2005, a site-wide security software upgrade will be performed on all CERN network equipment. This maintenance operation will cause at least 2 short network interruptions of 2 minutes on each equipment item. There are hundreds of such items across the CERN site (Meyrin, Prévessin and all SPS and LHC pits), and it will thus take the whole day to treat them all. All network users and services will be affected. Central batch computing services will be interrupted during this period, expected to last from 8 a.m. until late evening. Job submission will still be possible but no jobs will actually be run. It is hoped to complete the computer centre upgrades in the morning so that stable access can be restored to lxplus, afs and nice services as soon as possible; this cannot be guaranteed, however. The opportunity will be used to interrupt and perform upgrades on the CERN Document Servers.

    Nuclear lamins are intermediate filament proteins that represent important structural components of metazoan nuclear envelopes (NEs). By combining proteomics and superresolution microscopy, we recently reported that both A- and B-type nuclear lamins form spatially distinct filament networks at the nuclear periphery of mouse fibroblasts. In particular, A-type lamins exhibit differential association with nuclear pore complexes (NPCs). Our studies reveal that the nuclear lamina network in mammalian somatic cells is less ordered and more complex than that of amphibian oocytes, the only other system in which the lamina has been visualized at high resolution. In addition, the NPC component Tpr likely links NPCs to the A-type lamin network, an association that appears to be regulated by C-terminal modification of various A-type lamin isoforms. Many questions remain, however, concerning the structure and assembly of lamin filaments, as well as with their mode of association with other nuclear components such as peripheral chromatin.

    Full Text Available This essay aims to investigate some aspects of the activity of the Portuguese «Judeoconverso» merchant-banker Michele Vaaz (1550 ca. - 1623, in Naples. More specifically, in the first part of the essay we presented the results of a systematic analysis of original documents of the ancient public banks of Naples (today conserved in the Archivio Storico del Banco di Napoli. These documents permit us to reconstruct the commercial and financial activities of Michele Vaaz from 1595 to 1610. Specific attention has been given to the ones that led Vaaz to establish a network of relationships within the local and central political elites of the kingdom and to reach, during the years of the VII Count of Lemos’rule, the peak of the power. That peak was achieved with conflicts and tensions that are described in the second part of the essay, dwelling in particular on an episode placed between 1614 and 1615. The importance and weight that the «Judeoconversos» Portuguese merchants-bankers new Christian had within the system of power of the Spanish monarchy during the XVII century explains the illustrative value of the history of Miguel Vaaz, marked by a constant confrontation with the centre of power and the local elites.

    We introduce the construction of a new framework for probing discrete emergent geometry and boundary-boundary observables based on a fundamentally a-dimensional underlying network structure. Using a gravitationally motivated action with Forman weighted combinatorial curvatures and simplicial volumes relying on a decomposition of an abstract simplicial complex into realized embeddings of proper skeletons, we demonstrate properties such as a minimal volume-scale cutoff, the necessity of a term playing the role of a positive definite cosmological constant as a regulator for nondegenerate geometries, and naturally emergent simplicial structures from Metropolis network evolution simulations with no restrictions on attachment rules or regular building blocks. We see emergent properties which echo results from both the spinfoam formalism and causal dynamical triangulations in quantum gravity, and provide analytical and numerical results to support the analogy. We conclude with a summary of open questions and intent for future work in developing the program.

    Citation between papers can be treated as a causal relationship. In addition, some citation networks have a number of similarities to the causal networks in network cosmology, e.g., the similar in-and out-degree distributions. Hence, it is possible to model the citation network using network cosmology. The casual network models built on homogenous spacetimes have some restrictions when describing some phenomena in citation networks, e.g., the hot papers receive more citations than other simultaneously published papers. We propose an inhomogenous causal network model to model the citation network, the connection mechanism of which well expresses some features of citation. The node growth trend and degree distributions of the generated networks also fit those of some citation networks well.

    DEFF Research Database (Denmark)

    Hu, Yimei

    Open innovation in networks has been a popular topic for long, this paper rethinks the concepts of innovation network and network organization, and clarifies the differences between them based on the network perspective. Network perspective means that: network is the context of firms; market...... and hierarchy can be analyzed from a network approach. Within a network perspective, there are different levels of network, and a firm may not always has the power to “manage” innovation networks due to different levels of power. Based on the strength of a firm’s power, its role may varies from manager...

    State-of-the-art techniques borrowed from particle accelerators and detectors are a key element in hadrontherapy and several European projects are actively fostering the collaboration amongst the various disciplines and countries. ENLIGHT was established in 2002 to coordinate these European efforts in hadron therapy. The ENLIGHT network is formed by the European hadrontherapy Community, with more than 300 participants from twenty European countries. A major achievement of ENLIGHT has been the blending of traditionally separate communities so that clinicians, physicists, biologists and engineers with experience and interest in particle therapy are working together.

O pensador Michel Maffesoli, sociólogo francês estudioso do imaginário e do cotidiano, mostra como o espírito pós-moderno de diluição, desconstrução e quebra de paradigmas pervade todas as dimensões da vida contemporânea, inclusive formatando o jeito de crer e a forma de entender o religioso. A partir daí, os estudos do religioso – especialmente Teologia, Ciências da Religião e Ensino Religioso – reelaboram seus conceitos modernos, reestruturando seu campo a partir de novas categorias de análise da sociedade propostas por Maffesoli: Sociedade Neotribal, Associação pelo Desejo-de-estar-juntos, Processos de indentificação, Homeopatia do mal, Efeito de composição, entre outros.Palavras-chave: Michel Maffesoli; estudos de religião; pós-modernidade; neotribalismo; sociologia, imaginário religioso.

    2014-01-01

    Many group-living animals construct transportation networks of trails, galleries and burrows by modifying the environment to facilitate faster, safer or more efficient movement. Animal transportation networks can have direct influences on the fitness of individuals, whereas the shape and structure of transportation networks can influence community dynamics by facilitating contacts between different individuals and species. In this review, we discuss three key areas in the study of animal transportation networks: the topological properties of networks, network morphogenesis and growth, and the behaviour of network users. We present a brief primer on elements of network theory, and then discuss the different ways in which animal groups deal with the fundamental trade-off between the competing network properties of travel efficiency, robustness and infrastructure cost. We consider how the behaviour of network users can impact network efficiency, and call for studies that integrate both network topology and user behaviour. We finish with a prospectus for future research. PMID:25165598

    2013-01-01

    While most research in Social Network Analysis has focused on single networks, the availability of complex on-line data about individuals and their mutual heterogenous connections has recently determined a renewed interest in multi-layer network analysis. To the best of our knowledge, in this paper...... we introduce the first network formation model for multiple networks. Network formation models are among the most popular tools in traditional network studies, because of both their practical and theoretical impact. However, existing models are not sufficient to describe the generation of multiple...... networks.

    CERN Document Server

    Lim, Sung Hoon; Gamal, Abbas El; Chung, Sae-Young

    2010-01-01

    A noisy network coding scheme for sending multiple sources over a general noisy network is presented. For multi-source multicast networks, the scheme naturally extends both network coding over noiseless networks by Ahlswede, Cai, Li, and Yeung, and compress-forward coding for the relay channel by Cover and El Gamal to general discrete memoryless and Gaussian networks. The scheme also recovers as special cases the results on coding for wireless relay networks and deterministic networks by Avestimehr, Diggavi, and Tse, and coding for wireless erasure networks by Dana, Gowaikar, Palanki, Hassibi, and Effros. The scheme involves message repetition coding, relay signal compression, and simultaneous decoding. Unlike previous compress--forward schemes, where independent messages are sent over multiple blocks, the same message is sent multiple times using independent codebooks as in the network coding scheme for cyclic networks. Furthermore, the relays do not use Wyner--Ziv binning as in previous compress-forward sch...

  13. Identity and Professional Networking.

    Raj, Medha; Fast, Nathanael J; Fisher, Oliver

    2017-06-01

    Despite evidence that large professional networks afford a host of financial and professional benefits, people vary in how motivated they are to build such networks. To help explain this variance, the present article moves beyond a rational self-interest account to examine the possibility that identity shapes individuals' intentions to network. Study 1 established a positive association between viewing professional networking as identity-congruent and the tendency to prioritize strengthening and expanding one's professional network. Study 2 revealed that manipulating the salience of the self affects networking intentions, but only among those high in networking identity-congruence. Study 3 further established causality by experimentally manipulating identity-congruence to increase networking intentions. Study 4 examined whether identity or self-interest is a better predictor of networking intentions, providing support for the former. These findings indicate that identity influences the networks people develop. Implications for research on the self, identity-based motivation, and professional networking are discussed.

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Camille Lefauconnier-Ripoll

    2011-11-01

    Full Text Available L'article est consacré à l'étude du chapitre concernant la mort de Michel de Marillac, mis en parallèle avec un autre récit de mort d'une figure de la dévotion laïque du premier xviie siècle, François Sublet de Noyers, retrouvé dans un fonds d'archives privées des Archives départementales de Meurthe-et-Moselle. Il a paru intéressant de mettre en perspective ces deux textes, non seulement l'un au regard de l'autre, mais aussi au regard des autres récits de mort de la même période. Dans les différences, les silences, se dessinent en creux une image parfois subversive du dévot, qui à cause de sa foi, grâce à sa foi, est considéré de son vivant quasiment comme un saint, ce qui lui permet de s'affranchir des normes sociales de sa condition – en particulier au travers de la disgrâce politique vécue comme une libération.Ces figures sont-elles des exceptions ou des modèles de dévotion ? Une frange de pieux dévots, laïques mais aussi ecclésiastiques (comprenant des curés de paroisses parisiennes mais aussi de campagne, et aussi bien souvent des religieuses de couvent issus de la Contre-réforme comme les Carmélites, racontent ces morts, notamment dans leurs correspondances, et en font des objets d'admiration, voire de vénération.Au carrefour des aspirations sociales, politiques et religieuses, le récit de la mort de Michel de Marillac comme celui de la mort de François Sublet de Noyers, est un reflet de la circulation culturelle des modèles de spiritualité dévote au temps de la Contre-Réforme.This article is devoted to the study of the chapter on the death of Michel de Marillac, in parallel with the other narrative of death of François Sublet de Noyers, a figure of secular devotion in the first seventeenth century,  which was found in a private fund of archives in the Departmental Archives of Meurthe-et-Moselle.

    Dickison, Mark; Havlin, S.; Stanley, H. E.

    2012-06-01

    Populations are seldom completely isolated from their environment. Individuals in a particular geographic or social region may be considered a distinct network due to strong local ties but will also interact with individuals in other networks. We study the susceptible-infected-recovered process on interconnected network systems and find two distinct regimes. In strongly coupled network systems, epidemics occur simultaneously across the entire system at a critical infection strength βc, below which the disease does not spread. In contrast, in weakly coupled network systems, a mixed phase exists below βc of the coupled network system, where an epidemic occurs in one network but does not spread to the coupled network. We derive an expression for the network and disease parameters that allow this mixed phase and verify it numerically. Public health implications of communities comprising these two classes of network systems are also mentioned.

    Full Text Available Max Weber alleged that power and domination coexist in organizations; and that power is the ability to attain certain resources (economic, force, knowledge, etc.. When an organization is operating -using these resources, e.g., power-, and requires that orders are observed, domination must be applied under the logic of the administrative framework. This assumption attributes, as expected, a very reactionary role to the administration. Foucault rephrases the dilemma using the microphysics of power, relieving the administration of any suspicion of conservatism.

    A method and apparatus for protecting virtual machines. A computer system creates a copy of a group of the virtual machines in an operating network in a deception network to form a group of cloned virtual machines in the deception network when the group of the virtual machines is accessed by an adversary. The computer system creates an emulation of components from the operating network in the deception network. The components are accessible by the group of the cloned virtual machines as if the group of the cloned virtual machines was in the operating network. The computer system moves network connections for the group of the virtual machines in the operating network used by the adversary from the group of the virtual machines in the operating network to the group of the cloned virtual machines, enabling protecting the group of the virtual machines from actions performed by the adversary.

  7. Morphological neural networks

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    Ritter, G.X.; Sussner, P. [Univ. of Florida, Gainesville, FL (United States)

    1996-12-31

    The theory of artificial neural networks has been successfully applied to a wide variety of pattern recognition problems. In this theory, the first step in computing the next state of a neuron or in performing the next layer neural network computation involves the linear operation of multiplying neural values by their synaptic strengths and adding the results. Thresholding usually follows the linear operation in order to provide for nonlinearity of the network. In this paper we introduce a novel class of neural networks, called morphological neural networks, in which the operations of multiplication and addition are replaced by addition and maximum (or minimum), respectively. By taking the maximum (or minimum) of sums instead of the sum of products, morphological network computation is nonlinear before thresholding. As a consequence, the properties of morphological neural networks are drastically different than those of traditional neural network models. In this paper we consider some of these differences and provide some particular examples of morphological neural network.

    2017-01-01

    Complex bufferless networks such as on-chip networks and optical burst switching networks haven't been paid enough attention in network science. In complex bufferless networks, the store and forward mechanism is not applicable, since the network nodes are not allowed to buffer data packets. In this paper, we study the data transmission process in complex bufferless networks from the perspective of network science. Specifically, we use the Price model to generate the underlying network topolog...

    SERS investigations and electrical recording of neuronal networks with three-dimensional plasmonic nanoantennas Michele Dipalo, Valeria Caprettini, Anbrea Barbaglia, Laura Lovato, Francesco De Angelis e-mail: francesco.deangelis@iit.it Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia, Via Morego 30, 16163, Genova Biological systems are analysed mainly by optical, chemical or electrical methods. Normally each of these techniques provides only partial information about the environment, while combined investigations could reveal new phenomena occurring in complex systems such as in-vitro neuronal networks. Aiming at the merging of optical and electrical investigations of biological samples, we introduced three-dimensional plasmonic nanoantennas on CMOS-based electrical sensors [1]. The overall device is then capable of enhanced Raman Analysis of cultured cells combined with electrical recording of neuronal activity. The Raman measurements show a much higher sensitivity when performed on the tip of the nanoantenna in respect to the flat substrate [2]; this effect is a combination of the high plasmonic field enhancement and of the tight adhesion of cells on the nanoantenna tip. Furthermore, when plasmonic opto-poration is exploited [3] the 3D nanoelectrodes are able to penetrate through the cell membrane thus accessing the intracellular environment. Our latest results (unpublished) show that the technique is completely non-invasive and solves many problems related to state-of-the-art intracellular recording approaches on large neuronal networks.

  19. Temporal network epidemiology

    CERN Document Server

    Holme, Petter

    2017-01-01

    This book covers recent developments in epidemic process models and related data on temporally varying networks. It is widely recognized that contact networks are indispensable for describing, understanding, and intervening to stop the spread of infectious diseases in human and animal populations; “network epidemiology” is an umbrella term to describe this research field. More recently, contact networks have been recognized as being highly dynamic. This observation, also supported by an increasing amount of new data, has led to research on temporal networks, a rapidly growing area. Changes in network structure are often informed by epidemic (or other) dynamics, in which case they are referred to as adaptive networks. This volume gathers contributions by prominent authors working in temporal and adaptive network epidemiology, a field essential to understanding infectious diseases in real society.

    The focus of this project was on the development of a "Network Service Plane" as an abstraction model for the control and provisioning of multi-layer networks. The primary motivation for this work were the requirements of next generation networked applications which will need to access advanced networking as a first class resource at the same level as compute and storage resources. A new class of "Intelligent Network Services" were defined in order to facilitate the integration of advanced network services into application specific workflows. This new class of network services are intended to enable real-time interaction between the application co-scheduling algorithms and the network for the purposes of workflow planning, real-time resource availability identification, scheduling, and provisioning actions.

    2017-10-01

    Dynamical networks are systems of active elements (nodes) interacting with each other through links. Examples are power grids, neural structures, coupled chemical oscillators, and communications networks, all of which are characterized by a networked structure and intrinsic dynamics of their interacting components. If the coupling structure of a dynamical network can change over time due to nodal dynamics, then such a system is called an adaptive dynamical network. The term ‘adaptive’ implies that the coupling topology can be rewired; the term ‘dynamical’ implies the presence of internal node and link dynamics. The main results of research on adaptive dynamical networks are reviewed. Key notions and definitions of the theory of complex networks are given, and major collective effects that emerge in adaptive dynamical networks are described.

    Class network routing is implemented in a network such as a computer network comprising a plurality of parallel compute processors at nodes thereof. Class network routing allows a compute processor to broadcast a message to a range (one or more) of other compute processors in the computer network, such as processors in a column or a row. Normally this type of operation requires a separate message to be sent to each processor. With class network routing pursuant to the invention, a single message is sufficient, which generally reduces the total number of messages in the network as well as the latency to do a broadcast. Class network routing is also applied to dense matrix inversion algorithms on distributed memory parallel supercomputers with hardware class function (multicast) capability. This is achieved by exploiting the fact that the communication patterns of dense matrix inversion can be served by hardware class functions, which results in faster execution times.

    2014-11-06

    Many group-living animals construct transportation networks of trails, galleries and burrows by modifying the environment to facilitate faster, safer or more efficient movement. Animal transportation networks can have direct influences on the fitness of individuals, whereas the shape and structure of transportation networks can influence community dynamics by facilitating contacts between different individuals and species. In this review, we discuss three key areas in the study of animal transportation networks: the topological properties of networks, network morphogenesis and growth, and the behaviour of network users. We present a brief primer on elements of network theory, and then discuss the different ways in which animal groups deal with the fundamental trade-off between the competing network properties of travel efficiency, robustness and infrastructure cost. We consider how the behaviour of network users can impact network efficiency, and call for studies that integrate both network topology and user behaviour. We finish with a prospectus for future research. © 2014 The Author(s) Published by the Royal Society. All rights reserved.

  14. Is the immune network a complex network?

    CERN Document Server

    Souza-e-Silva, Hallan

    2012-01-01

    Some years ago a cellular automata model was proposed to describe the evolution of the immune repertoire of B cells and antibodies based on Jerne's immune network theory and shape-space formalism. Here we investigate if the networks generated by this model in the different regimes can be classified as complex networks. We have found that in the chaotic regime the network has random characteristics with large, constant values of clustering coefficients, while in the ordered phase, the degree distribution of the network is exponential and the clustering coefficient exhibits power law behavior. In the transition region we observed a mixed behavior (random-like and exponential) of the degree distribution as opposed to the scale-free behavior reported for other biological networks. Randomness and low connectivity in the active sites allow for rapid changes in the connectivity distribution of the immune network in order to include and/or discard information and generate a dynamic memory. However it is the availabil...

  17. Dominating biological networks.

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Tijana Milenković

    Full Text Available Proteins are essential macromolecules of life that carry out most cellular processes. Since proteins aggregate to perform function, and since protein-protein interaction (PPI networks model these aggregations, one would expect to uncover new biology from PPI network topology. Hence, using PPI networks to predict protein function and role of protein pathways in disease has received attention. A debate remains open about whether network properties of "biologically central (BC" genes (i.e., their protein products, such as those involved in aging, cancer, infectious diseases, or signaling and drug-targeted pathways, exhibit some topological centrality compared to the rest of the proteins in the human PPI network.To help resolve this debate, we design new network-based approaches and apply them to get new insight into biological function and disease. We hypothesize that BC genes have a topologically central (TC role in the human PPI network. We propose two different concepts of topological centrality. We design a new centrality measure to capture complex wirings of proteins in the network that identifies as TC those proteins that reside in dense extended network neighborhoods. Also, we use the notion of domination and find dominating sets (DSs in the PPI network, i.e., sets of proteins such that every protein is either in the DS or is a neighbor of the DS. Clearly, a DS has a TC role, as it enables efficient communication between different network parts. We find statistically significant enrichment in BC genes of TC nodes and outperform the existing methods indicating that genes involved in key biological processes occupy topologically complex and dense regions of the network and correspond to its "spine" that connects all other network parts and can thus pass cellular signals efficiently throughout the network. To our knowledge, this is the first study that explores domination in the context of PPI networks.

  18. Robustness of weighted networks

    Science.gov (United States)

    Bellingeri, Michele; Cassi, Davide

    2018-01-01

    Complex network response to node loss is a central question in different fields of network science because node failure can cause the fragmentation of the network, thus compromising the system functioning. Previous studies considered binary networks where the intensity (weight) of the links is not accounted for, i.e. a link is either present or absent. However, in real-world networks the weights of connections, and thus their importance for network functioning, can be widely different. Here, we analyzed the response of real-world and model networks to node loss accounting for link intensity and the weighted structure of the network. We used both classic binary node properties and network functioning measure, introduced a weighted rank for node importance (node strength), and used a measure for network functioning that accounts for the weight of the links (weighted efficiency). We find that: (i) the efficiency of the attack strategies changed using binary or weighted network functioning measures, both for real-world or model networks; (ii) in some cases, removing nodes according to weighted rank produced the highest damage when functioning was measured by the weighted efficiency; (iii) adopting weighted measure for the network damage changed the efficacy of the attack strategy with respect the binary analyses. Our results show that if the weighted structure of complex networks is not taken into account, this may produce misleading models to forecast the system response to node failure, i.e. consider binary links may not unveil the real damage induced in the system. Last, once weighted measures are introduced, in order to discover the best attack strategy, it is important to analyze the network response to node loss using nodes rank accounting the intensity of the links to the node.

  19. Managing Innovation Networks

    Awate, Snehal Suyash; Møller Larsen, Marcus; Mudambi, Ram

    In this article, we treat innovation as a multidimensional construct spanning people, technologies, and geographies. We study how these dimensions interact and impact firms' inventor networks and the ultimate innovation performance. We identify five distinct planes in which inventor networks reside...... of the costs and benefits of being centrally located on multiplex network versus having an equal distribution of ties between the different network layers. Using patent data on the global wind power industry, we find evidence suggesting that being centrally positioned on a multiplex network with an equal...

    The papers included in these proceedings represent the most interesting and current topics being pursued by personnel at GSFC's Networks Division and supporting contractors involved in Space, Ground, and Deep Space Network (DSN) technical work. Although 29 papers are represented in the proceedings, only 12 were presented at the conference because of space and time limitations. The proceedings are organized according to five principal technical areas of interest to the Networks Division: Project Management; Network Operations; Network Control, Scheduling, and Monitoring; Modeling and Simulation; and Telecommunications Engineering.
