  2. Irreflexivity and Aristotle's Syllogismos

    NARCIS (Netherlands)

    Duncombe, Matthew

    Aristotle's definition of syllogismos at Prior Analytics 24b18–20 specifies syllogistic consequence as an irreflexive relation: the conclusion must be different from each premise and any conjunction of the premises. Typically, commentators explain this irreflexivity condition as Aristotle's attempt

  6. Mathematics in Aristotle

    CERN Document Server

    Heath, Thomas

    2015-01-01

    Originally published in 1949. This meticulously researched book presents a comprehensive outline and discussion of Aristotle's mathematics with the author's translations of the greek. To Aristotle, mathematics was one of the three theoretical sciences, the others being theology and the philosophy of nature (physics). Arranged thematically, this book considers his thinking in relation to the other sciences and looks into such specifics as squaring of the circle, syllogism, parallels, incommensurability of the diagonal, angles, universal proof, gnomons, infinity, agelessness of the universe, surface of water, meteorology, metaphysics and mechanics such as levers, rudders, wedges, wheels and inertia. The last few short chapters address 'problems' that Aristotle posed but couldn't answer, related ethics issues and a summary of some short treatises that only briefly touch on mathematics.

    Aristotle rejects a world vision of changing reality as neither useful nor beneficial to human life, and instead he reaffirms both change and eternal reality, fuses motion and rest, and ends up with "well-behaved" changes. This concept of motion is foundational to his world view, and from it emerges his theory of knowledge, philosophy of…

  11. Is Aristotle a Virtue Ethicist?

    OpenAIRE

    Aufderheide, Joachim

    2017-01-01

    The chapter explores whether we should take Aristotle to be a virtue ethicist, understood as distinct from consequentialist and deontological approaches. For Aristotle the decisive questions whether virtue is prior to ethically good action or vice versa is equivalent to the question which mean is prior, the one characterising virtue or the one characterising good action. I argue that Aristotle would not seem to be a virtue ethicist because a) the definition of virtue in EN 2.6 tends towards p...

  12. Aristotle on Memory and Recollection

    DEFF Research Database (Denmark)

    Bloch, David Kristian

    Twentieth-century scholarship on Aristotle's De Memoria et Reminiscentia was dominated by the view that Aristotle's theories of memory and recollection are basically very similar to ours. By means of a new critical edition of the Greek text, an essay on Aristotle's own theories and an essay...... on these theories as they were received in the Latin West, the present book offers material that challenges the opinio communis. The result is a new interpretation of Aristotle's De Memoria et Reminiscentia and its relevance to the concerns of 21st-century philosophers, both regarding the concepts of memory...

  18. Statistical inference and Aristotle's Rhetoric.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Macdonald, Ranald R

    2004-11-01

    Formal logic operates in a closed system where all the information relevant to any conclusion is present, whereas this is not the case when one reasons about events and states of the world. Pollard and Richardson drew attention to the fact that the reasoning behind statistical tests does not lead to logically justifiable conclusions. In this paper statistical inferences are defended not by logic but by the standards of everyday reasoning. Aristotle invented formal logic, but argued that people mostly get at the truth with the aid of enthymemes--incomplete syllogisms which include arguing from examples, analogies and signs. It is proposed that statistical tests work in the same way--in that they are based on examples, invoke the analogy of a model and use the size of the effect under test as a sign that the chance hypothesis is unlikely. Of existing theories of statistical inference only a weak version of Fisher's takes this into account. Aristotle anticipated Fisher by producing an argument of the form that there were too many cases in which an outcome went in a particular direction for that direction to be plausibly attributed to chance. We can therefore conclude that Aristotle would have approved of statistical inference and there is a good reason for calling this form of statistical inference classical.

  20. Aristotle and the Postmodern World

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Alfredo Marcos

    2012-12-01

    Full Text Available With the support of recent scholarship the author proposes an understanding of the Aristotelian Corpus inspired by the biological works. He points out that this understanding is bound up with other current philosophical discussions, especially on biology, rationality, realism, the knowledge of an individual, metaphor, and poetics. The author concludes that Aristotle offers the most promising ontological, epistemological and anthropological basis not only for undertaking a series of urgent reconciliations (of facts and values, of theoretical and practical reason, of understanding and sensation, and of intelligence and emotion, but also for solving many dualisms of modern times, in their Platonic or materialist varieties.

  3. William Harvey, Aristotle and astrology.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Gregory, Andrew

    2014-06-01

    In this paper I argue that William Harvey believed in a form of astrology. It has long been known that Harvey employed a macrocosm-microcosm analogy and used alchemical terminology in describing how the two types of blood change into one another. This paper then seeks to examine a further aspect of Harvey in relation to the magical tradition. There is an important corollary to this line of thought, however. This is that while Harvey does have a belief in astrology, it is strongly related to Aristotle's views in this area and is quite restricted and attenuated relative to some contemporary beliefs in astrology. This suggests a more general thesis. While Harvey was amenable to ideas which we associate with the natural magic tradition, those ideas had a very broad range of formulation and there was a limit to how far he would accept them. This limit was largely determined by Harvey's adherence to Aristotle's natural philosophy and his Christian beliefs. I argue that this is also the case in relation to Harvey's use of the macrocosm-microcosm analogy and of alchemical terminology, and, as far as we can rely on the evidence, this informs his attitudes towards witches as well. Understanding Harvey's influences and motives here is important in placing him properly in the context of early seventeenth-century thought.

  4. Human Flourishing from the Foot's Viewpoint Regarding to Aristotle's Ideas

    2011-01-01

    Aristotle's virtue ethics is a teleological ethics, namely, for him, the purpose of achieving moral virtues by human beings is to obtain eudaimonia. The best interpretation of eudaimonia in Aristotle is human flourishing that is the main axis of Aristotle's ethics and also contemporary virtue ethics. Aristotle's analysis of human flourishing that is performed in biological context is based on the concept of ergon or function. Therefore, Aristotle, in description of human flourishing, emphasiz...

    This study, a tribute to Aristotle's 2400 years, used a juxtaposition of valid Aristotelian arguments to the paradoxes formulated by Zeno the Eleatic, in order to investigate the electrophysiological correlates of attentional and /or memory processing effects in the course of deductive reasoning. Participants undertook reasoning tasks based on visually presented arguments which were either (a) valid (Aristotelian) statements or (b) paradoxes. We compared brain activation patterns while participants maintained the premises / conclusions of either the valid statements or the paradoxes in working memory (WM). Event-related brain potentials (ERPs), specifically the P300 component of ERPs, were recorded during the WM phase, during which participants were required to draw a logical conclusion regarding the correctness of the valid syllogisms or the paradoxes. During the processing of paradoxes, results demonstrated a more positive event-related potential deflection (P300) across frontal regions, whereas processing of valid statements was associated with noticeable P300 amplitudes across parieto-occipital regions. These findings suggest that paradoxes mobilize frontal attention mechanisms, while valid deduction promotes parieto-occipital activity associated with attention and/or subsequent memory processing.

  8. The problem of slavery in Aristotle

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Miguel Ángel García Mercado

    2015-03-01

    Full Text Available Aristotle, without a doubt, is one of the greatest geniuses of all time, not only for his philosophical and scientific works, but also for his profound ethical disposition in his writings. In his works he asks the human being to live in accordance with the best that is in him. However, Aristotle is also recognized as one of the defenders of slavery. How can we explain this fact to the contemporary human being? This question requires special attention to the methodological and historical reasons in which Aristotle’s thought is immersed. There are also other deeper reasons that allow Aristotle to justify the existence of men who are slaves by nature, even considering the slave as «a possession with a soul».

  10. Aristotle and the Theory of Decision (Prohairesis

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Leila Shirkhan

    2017-07-01

    Full Text Available The term of prohairesis was systematically entered in philosophical debates by Aristotle. This concept is generally translated as intention, will, purpose, choice, purposive choice, rational choice, and deliberative choice that the later seems to be Aristotle’s definition of prohairesis. To understand the internal structure of prohairesiss, we have to understand the conceptions of action, intention, belief, whish, will, and virtues. For Aristotle if an action will be done through a decision, this action is voluntary, but its contrary is not credible. He believes that the children and animals act voluntarily, but they have not any decision, because they have not any deliberation.

    Full Text Available We realize noncommutative phase spaces as coadjoint orbits of extensions of the Aristotle group in a two dimensional space. Through these constructions the momenta of the phase spaces do not commute due to the presence of a naturally introduced magnetic eld. These cases correspond to the minimal coupling of the momentum with a magnetic potential.

  12. Transference and katharsis, Freud to Aristotle.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Turri, Maria Grazia

    2015-04-01

    Aristotle's theory of tragic katharsis is the most ancient and debated theory of the effect of the theatrical experience on the audience. It affirms that tragedy effects the katharsis of fear and pity, engaging readers with the controversy whether by katharsis Aristotle meant purification of the emotions (i.e. their perfection within the mind) or purification of the mind from the emotions (i.e. their abreaction from the mind). In this paper I will explore how Freud's theory of transference can suggest a new interpretation of Aristotle's tragic katharsis. Transference allows for the representation and expression of repressed emotions through the re-enactment of past relational dynamics. Although this process is essential to the psychoanalytic method, it is the subsequent analytic endeavour which allows for the "working through" of repressed emotions, bringing into effect the transference cure. I argue that the dynamic between emotional arousal in re-enactment and emotional distancing in analysis offers an effective parallel of the dynamic between katharsis of fear and katharsis of pity in Aristotle's theory. Such interpretation of tragic katharsis suggests that the theatrical effect in audiences may be an opportunity for self-analysis and the 'working through' of unconscious psychic dynamics.

  15. "Doidas e putas”: usos das categorias travesti e transexual

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Bruno Cesar Barbosa

    Full Text Available Neste artigo discuto os usos das categorias travesti e transexual com base em trabalho de campo realizado entre 2008 e 2009 com participantes das reuniões denominadas Terças Trans. A questão central que norteou a análise foi como as diferentes pessoas observadas utilizavam categorias relacionadas a identidades sexuais e de gênero e como acionavam e articulavam diversas associações convencionais nesse processo para produzir sentidos e diferenças acerca destas categorias. Embora as convenções do discurso médico sejam referências centrais para a definição de corpos, subjetividades e identidades das pessoas pesquisadas, foi possível observar também uma variedade de reelaborações e deslocamentos de sentidos. Procuro desenvolver o argumento de que travesti e transexual são categorias performativas, e que tal performatividade não se esgota apenas em enunciados de gênero e sexualidade, mas também pode ser expressa por meio de articulações contingentes que remetem a diferenças de classe, cor/raça e geração.

  17. The pancreas from Aristotle to Galen.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Tsuchiya, Ryoichi; Kuroki, Tamotsu; Eguchi, Susumu

    2015-01-01

    The first description of the pancreas in literature is found in Aristotle's Historia Animalium, but it is modified by "so-called". Therefore, the origin is pursued more extensively. The Greek-English Lexicon recommends three treatises as a possible original source. These three and Galen's other papers are investigated. In 2005, Sachs et al. suggested an origin of the pancreas might have derived from the intestinal divination using the avian pancreas. This report is evaluated. The avian pancreas which is the intraperitoneal organ, might have been well known by the intestinal divination, and people have called the organ pankreas or kallikreas. Anatomical dissection on human body was not accepted before the Aristotle's time. "So-called pancreas" in Historia must have been interpolated by Theophrastus. He was the most faithful and reliable disciple of Aristotle and succeeded the Aristotle's school. He and Macedonian ruler of Egypt Ptolemy I had known each other and there had been a strong link between them. The contemporary Herophilus performed many public dissections on both human and animal bodies in Alexandria. He named the various parts of the human body and designated the beginning intestine as duodenum. Yet in his extant works, the pancreas is not found. It is surmised that Herophilus may be the first to recognize the human pancreas, which is fixed with retroperitoneal tissue, and he named it "so-called pancreas". Theophrastus might have interpolated Herophilus' designation in Historia Animalium. Galen also uses "so-called pancreas" to designate the human pancreas. Galen's descriptions, that is, "Nature created 'so-called pancreas 'and spread it beneath all vessels" are not generally acceptable but propose the very rare portal vein anomalies. Since the early years of the 20th century, cases with a preduodenal portal vein or a prepancreatic portal vein have been reported. Although the incidence is very rare, its surgical importance is emphasized. Copyright © 2014

According to both them it is impossible to oust the passions from the good, i.e. happy life. On the contrary, emotions are an important component of human excellence.

    Aristotles account of place, in which he defined a things place as the inner surface of its nearest immobile container, was supported by the Latin Middle Ages, even 1600 years after his death, though it had not convinced many ancient Greek philosophers. The sixth century commentator Philoponus took a more common-sense view. For him, place was an immobile three-dimensional extension, whose essence did not preclude its being empty, even if for other reasons it had always to be filled with body. However, Philoponus reserved his own definition for an excursus, already translated in this series, Th

    2013-05-01

    Full Text Available The forms of love in India are as complex as in the rest of cultures; especially when they are reflected in literature. One of the tasks of Indian literary poets about these forms is concentrated on the cultural and the social field. The Indian lyric poetry reflects images which go beyond linguistic structural morphosyntactic forms. For both Indian and Greek theorists and poets it is very important not only the structural form of poetry but also the images in it. With this I refer to alamkaras or rhetoric figures, as it is usual translate them thanks to all poetic Greek tradition, of which Aristotle, with his Poetics and Rhetorics, is the representative maximum. The rupaka or metaphor is a figure very used by both Indian and Greek poets. The stylistic reach of rupaka or metaphor manages to transcend into theoretical and poetical texts. In this sense, into this essay I set out a comparison between the definition of metaphor in Aristotle’s Poetics and Rhetorics and the definition of rupaka in Bharata’s Natyashastra, treatise about playwriting, very important for the studies on Indian theater as well as for those on Indian poetry. All this comparative theory helps me to find the aim of metaphor into Sanskrit poetry, through the vision of Aristotle and Bharata, thanks to the poetic reach of rupaka or metaphor.

  4. Aristotelian Presocratics A Look at Aristotle\\'s Interpretation of Presocratic Phiolosophers

    2015-03-01

    Full Text Available Aristotle's understanding of Presocratic philosophers and his interpretation of their theses based on his own framework has always been a matter of dispute among scholars. His role of representing them as one of the main sources of Presocratic philosophy makes this is more. Here in this paper we try to investigate, analyzing Metaphysics, Physics and Generation and Destruction, how Aristotle interprets all the Presocratics in the same way and based on his own framework. He understands their arche as a simple element came out of nothing and constructing all other things and even considers it as substance while every other thing as accident which is obviously on the basis of his own distinction. He also interprets their change on the basis of his own distinction between change on the one hand and generation and destruction on the other that is itself based on the substance-accident distinction.

    2015-05-01

    Full Text Available the article shows the importance of friendship in the context of Aristotelian political philosophy. this importance is verified in its specific weight compared with justice. As it is known, Aristotle argues that the pursuit of friendship outranks the pursuit of justice in the polis. Particularly, the article focuses on the role of concord, as a special type of civic friendship, in terms of preserving the unity and stability of the polis. to grasp its significance, we have to consider the role of concord as a supplement of the political condition of the human being. Concord is necessary in the light of the trend to the struggle between the parts of the city, between the demos and the oligarchs. Since this fight endangers the continuity of the polis, concord among citizens becomes a privileged background of early republican fraternity, which has not enjoyed sufficient attention in the field of history of political philosophy.

    From historical sources, it is evident that Alexander the Great was indebted to one of his teachers, Aristotle of Stagira. It was the teaching of Aristotle that evoked all the nascent talents of young Alexander and turned him into a great man. Alexander was extremely interested in the secrets of medicine and considered it an art. The medical knowledge he acquired from Aristotle may have saved his life and the lives of his troops on many occasions. If Alexander did not possess medical knowledge and if his everyday life had not been so greatly influenced by medicine, he might never have been able to create his empire.

  8. [The haematogenous reproduction theory of Aristotle].

    Kremer, J

    2003-12-20

    From the very beginning, man has been fascinated by the continuous coming into being of new life on Earth. Archeological and anthropological data indicate that in prehistoric times, reproduction was attributed to a fertility goddess that required no sperm for this purpose. In the early historical Middle East it was believed that a godly being brought about pregnancy by using male and female semen. It was the merit of the Greek philosophers of the 6th-3rd century B.C. to realize that reproduction was governed by natural laws. Several theories were developed to understand how reproduction could occur. The haematogenous theory of reproduction, developed by Aristotle, has received the most attention. The essence of this theory is that the male sperm, with a haematogenous origin, causes the development of an embryo from menstrual blood present in the female uterus. The theory survived about 2000 years, with modifications, and was also introduced into Christianity. It was only about 150 years ago that the reproduction theory based on hypotheses was changed into a reproduction science based on facts.

    Sea urchins have proved fascinating to biologists since the time of Aristotle who compared the appearance of their bony mouth structure to a lantern in The History of Animals. Throughout modern times it has been a model system for research in developmental biology. Now, the genome of the sea urchin Strongylocentrotus purpuratus is the first echinoderm genome to be sequenced. A high quality draft sequence assembly was produced using the Atlas assembler to combine whole genome shotgun sequences with sequences from a collection of BACs selected to form a minimal tiling path along the genome. A formidable challenge was presented by the high degree of heterozygosity between the two haplotypes of the selected male representative of this marine organism. This was overcome by use of the BAC tiling path backbone, in which each BAC represents a single haplotype, as well as by improvements in the Atlas software. Another innovation introduced in this project was the sequencing of pools of tiling path BACs rather than individual BAC sequencing. The Clone-Array Pooled Shotgun Strategy greatly reduced the cost and time devoted to preparing shotgun libraries from BAC clones. The genome sequence was analyzed with several gene prediction methods to produce a comprehensive gene list that was then manually refined and annotated by a volunteer team of sea urchin experts. This latter annotation community edited over 9000 gene models and uncovered many unexpected aspects of the sea urchin genetic content impacting transcriptional regulation, immunology, sensory perception, and an organism's development. Analysis of the basic deuterostome genetic complement supports the sea urchin's role as a model system for deuterostome and, by extension, chordate development.

    2016-11-01

    Full Text Available This essay offers an interpretation of Aristotle's remarks on the commensurability of goods in Book V of the Nicomachean Ethics. It explores the term ‘by hypothesis’ (ἐξ ὑποθέσεως which Aristotle uses to describe the institution of currency through which commensurability is established. The term implies that Aristotle conceives the origins of currency to lie in a conscious act of stipulation rather than through a spontaneous process in which currency is established via the unintended consequences of individual action. In conclusion, contemporary theories of money are considered and it is asked with which Aristotle’s conception of money aligns most closely.

  11. Being qua becoming: Aristotle's "Metaphysics", quantum physics, and Process Philosophy

    Science.gov (United States)

    Johnson, David Kelley

    In Aristotle's First Philosophy, science and philosophy were partners, but with the rise of empiricism, went their separate ways. Metaphysics combined the rational and irrational (i.e. final cause/unmoved mover) elements of existence to equate being with substance, postulating prime matter as pure potential that was actuated by form to create everything. Modern science reveres pure reason and postulates its theory of being by a rigorous scientific methodology. The Standard Model defines matter as energy formed into fundamental particles via forces contained in fields. Science has proved Aristotle's universe wrong in many ways, but as physics delves deeper into the quantum world, empiricism is reaching its limits concerning fundamental questions of existence. To achieve its avowed mission of explaining existence completely, physics must reunite with philosophy in a metascience modeled on the First Philosophy of Aristotle. One theory of being that integrates quantum physics and metaphysics is Process Philosophy.

  12. An Explanation of True Dreams: Aristotle and Jung

    Full Text Available The naturalistic explanation of realized dream (or dreams that come true means that this phenomen will be explained regardless of supernatural agents. Aristotle in Parva naturalia and Jung in his works explained dream visionary. In this article by scrutiny on these thinkers’ theory, we will indicate the naturalistic approach to dream that is far- fetched for followers of metaphysics. In spite of this fact that Aristotle and Jung both belongs to different historical contexts, they have common aspects in terms of naturalistic method; in the universal or broad sense of word, but in terms of content both explain the true dream by the term “coincidence” or accidental conformity between objective events and psychological affairs. It also seems that the notion of Neutral monism in Jung is adaptive to Hylomorphism in Aristotle psychology, and this, provides a path for naturalistic approach to dream as one forms of consciousness.

    The function of the pyloric caeca of fish has been uncertain since their detailed description in 345 B.C. by Aristotle. He suggested three hypotheses about their function: "to store up the food," "putrify it up," and "concoct it" (i.e., storage, fermentation, and digestion). Our results for trout, cod, largemouth bass, and striped bass support the third but not the first or second of Aristotle's theories.

    2012-07-01

    Full Text Available In his treatise On Music, Plutarch cites and discusses excerpts from works of Plato and Aristotle in which these authors deal with issues relevant to the harmonic theory. In these passages, we see that the sources used by Plutarch have a strong influence of the Pythagorean school, under which the study of musical scales was developed focusing on the mathematical relationships that exist between the notes and intervals. This indicates that Plutarch or not directly read the texts of Plato and Aristotle, or read, but using some other source, a commentator of Pythagorean extraction, who we can not identify.

  2. The issue of life: Aristotle in nursing perspective.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Elstad, Ingunn; Torjuul, Kirsti

    2009-10-01

    This paper explores the issue of life and its relevance to nursing, through Aristotle's philosophy and an Aristotelian interpretation of Nightingale's Notes on Nursing. Life as process and becoming has ontological status in Aristotle's philosophy and this dynamism is particularly relevant for nursing. The paper presents aspects of Aristotle's philosophy of life: his account of life as inherent powers of the individual, his analysis of change and time, and his understanding of sickness and health as qualitative states of living beings. It is shown how the Greek medical-philosophical tradition, continued by Galenic medicine and hygiene into modern time, influenced Nightingale's nursing. Individuals' life-maintaining metabolic relations to their surroundings are investigated through Aristotle and modern philosophy of biology and through Nightingale's nursing emphasis on the patient's relation to her or his immediate surroundings. It is argued that Nightingale's concern is really the processes of individual life, which in sickness necessitate temporally continuous nursing observation. Humans' radical dependency on their surroundings is actualized as interpersonal interdependency. The paper argues that the end of nursing care, the telos for which sake it is practised, is inherent in the individual course of the patients' life. When life processes are affected by sickness, infirmity, medical interventions or mental suffering, individuals need competent help to live - and to live as well as possible. It is suggested that the special responsibility of nursing is to facilitate, relieve and protect individual life continuously during such times.

  6. On Three Locations Connected with Aristotle: Ancient Stagira - Mieza - Athens

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Valentin Kalan

    2004-07-01

    Full Text Available The last decade has witnessed well-nigh simultaneous discoveries on three archaeological sites connected with Aristotle, which have eliminated many cliches and mistaken assumptions about the philosopher's life and work. These are: (1 his native town of Stagira, or Stagirus; (2 his school in the Macedonian town of Mieza; and (3 the location of the Peripatetic school, the Lyceum, at Athens. The first part of the article thus briefly surveys the most important discoveries about the layout of ancient Stagira, as described in the monograph by Konstantinos Sismanidis. The  main  archaeological finds include an early classical town-wall (an admirable example of military architecture, the  stoa,  an  aqueduct, the  foundations of three  temples, silver coins with the type of a wild boar, etc.-The second part moves from a preliminary description of Mieza to an  attempt at  reconstructing the philosophical ideas transmitted by Aristotle to Alexander and  his peers at Mieza- not  Pella-, using  Plutarch's Life of Alexander as a starting-point. Such education would have been  impossible if the Macedonians had not been  Greeks  and  their  language a Greek  dialect, and  it is the failure to realize this fact that has long impeded- and  still does- our understanding of Aristotle's attitude to Philip and  Alexander. The article touches on  the potential relevance of Alexander's politics for  the  present, which  may be sought in  its interplay of  two processes: the  spreading of Greek culture abroad on  the  one hand, and, on  the  other, the  preservation of  other cultures with which  the Greeks came into contact. The third part, drawing on  Rupp's book Peripatoi, presents the  latest archaeological discoveries relating to the exact location of Aristotle's Peripatos in Athens. In 323 BC -immediately after Alexander's death- Aristotle retired from Athens for the  second time, his life endangered by the  prevailing anti

    Christiane Kleinübing Godoi

    2011-04-01

    Full Text Available O estudo dos processos complexos de aprendizagem encontra no fenômeno motivacional um elemento fundamental. O que se busca neste ensaio é compreensão do entrelaçamento dos aspectos afetivos, cognitivos e sociais da motivação no interior do processo de aprendizagem organizacional. A delimitação do objeto – motivação na aprendizagem organizacional – emerge, inicialmente, da construção de cada categoria: a categoria afetiva, originária da confluência entre a teoria psicanalítica freudiana e abordagem psicodinâmica da aprendizagem; b categoria cognitiva, procedente do pensamento piagetiano; e c categoria social, sob a influência das teorias da aprendizagem social e sociocognitiva. Em virtude de as teorias referenciais terem sido desenvolvidas historicamente sob paradigmas distintos, elabora-se uma aproximação entre o paradigma criticalista, que transpassa a abordagem psicanalítica, e o construcionismo social, que sustenta as abordagens da psicologia utilizadas. A análise conjunta das três categorias e de seus fatores envolve dois momentos: a análise dos fatores da motivação na aprendizagem, descritos por autores que atuam no campo do indivíduo, observando aqueles que podem ser adaptados para o campo organizacional, e inseridos nas categorias desenvolvidas; e proposição de um quadro-síntese de categorias e fatores que possa ser utilizado em estudos subsequentes sobre o tema. Este artigo pretende contribuir para um novo olhar sobre as teorias da motivação e da aprendizagem nas organizações, uma vez que a sua relação constitui um objeto de estudo que não pode ser reduzido a um tipo motivacional, tampouco a um tipo de cenário de engajamentos, semelhante à motivação no trabalho, mas consiste em um conceito inerente aos processos do aprender organizacional. Atribui-se a relevância do estudo à abertura de uma perspectiva multiparadigmática de compreensão do fenômeno.

    1995-01-01

    This paper examines the nature of Galen's argument in the De placitis Hippocratis et Platonis, books 2-3, concerned with the location of the psychic functions within the body. To this question Galen applies a coherent set of methodological principles, integrating Aristotelian dialectic and scientific demonstration based on anatomical experiments. Galen disagrees with Aristotle in that he relegates the endoxa from the realm of dialectic to that of rhetoric. His attitude is marked by a distinctive emphasis on perceptible phenomena as the starting point for scientific inquiry. This and other features can be traced back to the Hellenistic scientist Herophilus.

  13. A cladistic analysis of Aristotle's animal groups in the Historia animalium.

    Science.gov (United States)

    von Lieven, Alexander Fürst; Humar, Marcel

    2008-01-01

    The Historia animalium (HA) of Aristotle contains an extraordinarily rich compilation of descriptions of animal anatomy, development, and behaviour. It is believed that Aristotle's aim in HA was to describe the correlations of characters rather than to classify or define animal groups. In order to assess if Aristotle, while organising his character correlations, referred to a pre-existing classification that underlies the descriptions in HA, we carried out a cladistic analysis according to the following procedure: by disentangeling 147 species and 40 higher taxa-designations from 157 predicates in the texts, we transcribed Aristotle's descriptions on anatomy and development of animals in books I-V of HA into a character matrix for a cladistic analysis. By analysing the distribution of characters as described in his books, we obtained a non-phylogenetic dendrogram displaying 58 monophyletic groups, 29 of which have equivalents among Aristotle's group designations. Eleven Aristotelian groupings turned out to be non-monophyletic, and six of them are inconsistent with the monophyletic groups. Twelve of 29 taxa without equivalents in Aristotle's works have equivalents in modern classifications. With this analysis we demonstate there exists a fairly consistent underlying classification in the zoological works of Aristotle. The peculiarities of Aristotle's character basis are discussed and the dendrogram is compared with a current phylogenetic tree.

    1990-09-01

    National High School students from Papua New Guinea were interviewed about two situations; the results of their Aristotle-like views regarding `forced' and `natural' motion are presented and discussed. Twenty-one National High School Students were interviewed about two situations similarly used elsewhere (Osborne and Gibert 1979, 1980, Osborne 1980a) and the results of these Aristotle-like views possessed by students have been presented and discussed above. With each of the six summary statements some extracts have been provided from interviews conducted by the author with students who had come from various parts of Pupua New Guinea. Students' views have been compiled to give a composite picture of the Aristotle-like ideas. Some impression of the commonality of the ideas/beliefs has been provided by reference to the work of others who have reported similar tendencies in testing and interviewing physics students. Throughout the study, students' Aristotlean-like views have been given a respected status that reflects their widespread use, their internal coherence and their tenacity in the face of classroom teaching in a Pupua New Guinea National High School. In analysing individual interview transcripits, attempts were made to construct ideas/beliefs that can account for statements by each student in a manner that statements are consistent with each other. The assumption that all of a student's statements are logically compatible to a listener or reader is difficult to maintain. However, it is one that has to be made as a hypothesis to work with, otherwise it is too easy to discount sections of a student's discourse that seem inconsistent with understandable parts. The aims of this part of the study have been to provide science educationalists with a repertoire of common Aristolean-like beliefs which have persisted in students. These views differ in some ways from the orthodox physics views. By better understanding of the students' beliefs and commitments about

    Full Text Available In this article, it's tried to study Aristotle's narrative of  pre-Socratics on the base of Aristotle's texts and mainly using  metaphysics, physics, genesis and decadence books. It is also tried to show how Aristotle has interpreted all the pre-Socratics in one way and on the base of his own philosophy framework. He interprets pre-Socratic Arche as an element that means comprehensive matter which is nothing itself, but everything is combination of it and even considers that as substance and the other things as accident. He interprets the distinction of Arche and other things on the basis of this contrast in his philosophy. Aristotle, also analyzes pre-Socratics' viewpoint to change on the base of his distinction among change, genesis and corruption. All these cases show that Aristotle has interpreted the pre-Socratics on the basis of his thought, as Aristotelians. On this basis, since Aristotle's thoughts are the first and the most important sources of pre-Socratic philosophy, Aristotle's role should be considered in studies.

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    C.F.J. Martin

    2013-11-01

    Full Text Available Aristotle, in the first book of the Nicomachean Ethics, makes two attempts at establishing the thesis that being a human being has a point (a telos, using two parallel sets of examples. His first step is to claim that whenever anything has a characteristic activity (ergon that activity is its end (telos, using the example of “the flute-player, the sculptor, and in general any craftsman”. This identification of the characteristic activity of a craftsman with the location of his “good and well”, qua craftsman, and thus presumably with the telos of the craftsman may be questioned, of course, but it does not affect the course of the arguments and the use of the examples I wish to pursue. It is enough that for given roles there should be a teleological relation to some point for that role.

  20. Aristotle on Sentence Types and Forms of Speech

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Gábor Bolonyai

    2005-12-01

    Full Text Available According to the Hermeneutics, Ch. 4, the analysis of non-assertoric sentences such as wishes, commands, etc. belongs to rhetoric or poetics. They are, however, examined neither in the Rhetoric nor in the Poetics, where (Ch. 20 their treatment. is explicitly excluded from the art of poetry and referred to that of delivery or performance. The paper gives an explanation for this discrepancy, based on an interpretation of Aristotle's rejection of Protagoras' criticism of Homer. The sophist found fault with the first line of the Iliad where Homer invokes the Muse by the imperative Menin aeide, thea thus uttering a command while believing that he is expressing a prayer. Aristotle's grounds for rejecting this criticism remain implicit, but it appears very likely that he thought that, if uttered or performed in the right manner, the sentence could he taken as a prayer. From this observation, which is certainly valid in this particular case, he drew the conclusion that performative or vocal features in themselves, i.e. rhythm, intonation and volume of sound, are always sufficient to identify particular „figures of speech“, as he calls non-assertoric sentence types in the Poetics. This conclusion is, however, not entirely justified. Performative features are not always enough to differentiate between two `figures of speech'; the possible range of verbal moods and sentence types is likewise determined by morphological marks (e.g. mood signs, syntactical features (word-order, and lexical items (certain adverbs or particles. Aristotle’s decision to dismiss figures of speech altogether from the field of lexis may also have contributed to the later development of keeping linguistics and theory of style apart as two separate branches of inquiry.

    In this article, it's tried to study Aristotle's narrative of  pre-Socratics on the base of Aristotle's texts and mainly using  metaphysics, physics, genesis and decadence books. It is also tried to show how Aristotle has interpreted all the pre-Socratics in one way and on the base of his own philosophy framework. He interprets pre-Socratic Arche as an element that means comprehensive matter which is nothing itself, but everything is combination of it and even considers that as substance and ...

The goal is to identify four cardinal points that may ground a dialogue between two contesting positions regarding this problem.

  4. Aristotle on Deliberation:Its Place in Ethics, Politics and Rhetoric

    OpenAIRE

    Aristotle differs from most later philosophers in distinguishing clearly between epistemic reasoning, which aims for truth, and practical reasoning, which does not. How can he posit this distinction and yet not dismiss practical reasoning as flattery and manipulation, as Plato did? The answer lies in the concepts of deliberation (boulē, bouleusis) and deliberate choice (proairesis). They link Aristotle's rhetoric, ethics, and politics together and help provide definitions of all three: Ethics...

    2017-10-01

    Preparing to lecture on Aristotle's contribution to Nursing at the International Philosophy of Nursing Conference August 22, 2016, in Quebec City, Quebec, Canada, I came upon the recently published article by my IPONS colleague, Allmark (2016), "Aristotle for Nursing." Allmark (2016) provides a comprehensive and understandable overview of Aristotle's philosophical system including the substantial nature of being and the four causes of change. Nurses using Aristotle to support practice and theoretical research will benefit from a careful reading of Allmark to enrich their use of the realist understanding of knowledge of nature (epistemology) and the matter-form causal relationships within natural being (ontology and teleology). Allmark carefully displays the distinction between good health and flourishing; a distinction sometimes hard to grasp. Nurses are concerned with the end of health, but cannot achieve for others, the fullness of living which is flourishing. We will limit ourselves to expanding three areas that seem important, first, that nursing is much more than a productive science or craft, second, that Aristotle does provide an important note on the persistence of the soul, and, third, while Aristotle does not address the possibility of a personal creative highest being as Allmark says, his references to the divine are worth considering. © 2017 John Wiley & Sons Ltd.

    Full Text Available Resumen: Comparada con la economía de hoy, la de la Grecia antigua —por lo menos en una de sus concepciones— era una economía limitada. Exteriormente,porque en Hesíodo sirve para el sustento de la casa, y en Aristóteles para el sustento de la ciudad; interiormente y de manera sistemática, en el primer caso, por su origen divino y su sentido dentro de la relación hombre-dioses, y en el segundo caso, por su subordinación a la teleología ética y política de la vida humana, tal y como la concibe Aristóteles. La autarquía, como límite de la economía, es doble. Por una parte, autarquía económica en sentido estricto, ya que la economía sólo ha de llegar hasta el punto de poder asegurar la supervivencia de la comunidad que es su sujeto. Pero, por otra, la autarquía, para Aristóteles, tiene sobre todo un sentido antropológico: el hombre más autárquico es el que practica aquello que, para su praxis, no necesita de otra cosa: esta praxis más alta es la de la razón, desarrollada en la Polis, que es su meta. Esta autarquía del ser razonable da sentido y también límite al buen actuar económico, que es una mera herramienta.Abstract: By contrast to the contemporary economy, Ancient Greece had a closed economy. In what follows I distinguish an outer and an inner perspective. The outer perspective is determined by the autarky of the household (Hesiod or of the city (Aristotle, which is the exclusive moral aim for economic activity. The inner perspective is determined by the moral implications of economic activity, founded in the gods (Hesiod or in practical human reason (Aristotle. Both of these perspectives limit the scope and range of an economy and of economic influence on society. The distinction between the persepcectives gives us the basis for another distinction explicitly stated in Aristotle’s Politics. That distinction has influenced economic thought for several centuries and consistsin distinguishing two forms of

  8. The Four Causes of ADHD: Aristotle in the Classroom.

    2017-01-01

    Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is one of the most well-established and at the same time controversial disorders to the extreme of being placed in doubt. In the first of two parts, the established position is critically reviewed, beginning with showing fallacious reasoning on which the diagnosis is based, lacking clinical proof. Similarly, a certain rhetoric and metaphysics in genetic and neurobiological research is highlighted, where, for example, a meager accumulation of data is offered as robust conclusions, and correlates and correlations as causes and bases. However, that may be, the controversy is silenced in a dialog of the deaf between "defenders" and "critics." with no way out in sight in empirical and scientific terms. A new meta-scientific position is necessary to analyze the science of ADHD itself and its social uses. In this respect, the second part introduces Aristotle's four causes, material, formal, efficient, final, as an instrument of enquiry. According to this analysis, ADHD is not the pretended clinical entity as presented, but a practical entity providing a variety of functions. The implications would be rather different from the usual.

    Light is all around us – even when we do not see it. Our eyes do not detect the higher energy and shorter-than-visible-wavelength ultraviolet radiation, yet we know it is there from the sunburn we receive in Arizona. We know that window glass can block ultraviolet rays so we do not get a burn while driving with the windows rolled up. Our eyes do not detect the low-energy, long-wavelength infrared (IR) radiation but we know it exists from discussions of war applications and televised images of guided weapons targets. We also know about radio waves from the little boxes that talk to us and x-rays from the dentist's office. Patterns of Light, Chasing the Spectrum from Aristotle to LEDs, written by Steve Beeson and Jim Mayer starts with the visible – the straight path of light. It continues with chapters detailing reflection (mirrors, storefront windows) and refraction (eyeglasses, binoculars). Color is then introduced with the query "Why is the sky blue?" After answering that and other similar questions ("Wh...

    2010-01-01

    In the middle of XV century, in European Renaissance, it was necessary to study the Aristotle in original Greek, because translations from Arab in Latin had caused considerable alterations in the meaning of original texts. This task in the beginning was trusted to Leonico Tomeo, which, not only opened the way for the studying of the Aristotle in original, but himself made important interpretations about philosophic and social problems and gave his arguments about concepts of natural sciences, as for motion, atoms etc. He translated some works of Plato, Aristotle, Ptolemy etc, from the Greek to Latin. The work of Tomeo gave revolutionary results and prepared the way for the scientific method of Galileo, which from Padua, where worked and lived Tomeo and later, Galileo, propagates in all European universities.

    Full Text Available Purpose of the article: to analyze the basic points of philosophical concepts of rhetoric of Plato and Aristotle, to prove that from Plato the rhetoric in the true sense starts being approved, and Aristotle is an ancestor of real theory of speech of the new genre, the new form, the new purposes and tasks of the description of verbal art. Problem statement: development of the ancient principles of rhetorical style’s creating is reached by efforts of outstanding speakers, each of them were differed not only by the ideological sympathies or antipathies, but also by nature of works, the concepts put in their basis. Two Ancient Greek philosophers: Plato and Aristotle are considered as founders of ancient rhetorical science. Methodology. Author has used system method, methods of content and comparative analysis. Scientific novelty is displayed in the received results from the comparative analysis of two concepts of public speech of Plato and Aristotle from a position of philosophical justification of rhetoric’s rules with orientation on ancient "popular" declamation practices. Practical value of article consists in development of insufficiently studied object "Antique declamation discourse" where Plato and Aristotle's two central rhetorical concepts appear as the intermediate stage in development of a declamation discourse of Ancient Greece and, subsequently, and Ancient Rome. Conclusions. The conclusions can be given by the following facts: from Plato the rhetoric in the true sense is approved: true rhetorical art isn’t based only on argument technique, the true rhethor appears as the philosopher. Plato raises the problem of an ambiguity of two opposite rhetorics presented in "Gorgias" and "Phaedrus ". Rhetoric as scientific discipline, as the present theory of speech is first considered by Aristotle. The rhetoric is presented as the science "about speech and about thoughts", about the relation of thinking to the word.

    Full Text Available O campo da saúde há muito que reconhece os fatores socioculturais como multideterminantes nos processos de produção de saúde-adoecimento-cuidado e tem discutido o dinamismo das articulações entre gênero, raça/etnia e classe social, bem como a conjugação destas categorias para compreender as diferenças e desigualdades em saúde. A categoria geração, como uma das construções sociais altamente influentes no processo de saúde-adoecimento ainda aparece timidamente explorada nos estudos no campo da saúde e, muitas vezes, reduzida a coortes etárias. Este estudo de revisão de literatura, com caráter descritivo-discursivo, objetivou situar criticamente, nos estudos de gênero em saúde produzidos no país nos anos de 2001 a 2013, o construto teórico e analítico da categoria geração, bem como as categorias empíricas relacionadas (infância, juventude, maturidade e velhice. Foram realizadas, a partir das buscas bibliográficas no portal da Biblioteca Virtual em Saúde (BVS, análises descritivas de 225 resumos e análise qualitativa de 57 textos completos. Os resultados indicam esvaziamento de referencial conceitual acerca da geração e das categorias empíricas analisadas, especialmente quanto à categoria maturidade. Nos estudos empíricos, evidencia-se a necessidade de melhor apropriação do referencial conceitual de geração e, dentre os estudos de revisão ou de caráter teórico e ensaísticos, nota-se a importância em ampliar o referencial conceitual da própria categoria geracional, bem como trazer elementos para sua aplicabilidade no âmbito das políticas e práticas de saúde.

    Full Text Available O Cuidado Paliativo surge como uma filosofia humanitária de cuidar de pacientes em estado terminal, aliviando a sua dor e o sofrimento. Estes cuidados prevêem a ação de uma equipe interdisciplinar, onde cada profissional reconhecendo o limite da sua atuação contribuirá para que o paciente, em estado terminal, tenha dignidade na sua morte. Este artigo trata a questão da morte e do morrer, tanto na visão tradicional como na contemporaneidade, e como o cuidado paliativo tem sido tratado nas categorias de trabalho de medicina, serviço social, psicologia e enfermagem. A metodologia deste trabalho consiste na revisão bibliográfica de artigos localizados na base de dados Scielo, revistas eletrônicas e livros técnicos relacionados com o tema. A análise dos artigos apontou para uma carência de disciplinas que tratem da temática da morte nos currículos profissionais, para poucos serviços de cuidados paliativos na sociedade brasileira e para barreiras que se colocam a esse novo olhar ao paciente terminal. Esta pesquisa visa ampliar a discussão dos cuidados paliativos na saúde pública, e fornecer subsídios a futuros estudos que tratarão da temática.

No que tange aos recursos de posição social, foram examinadas particularmente as associações com a condição profissional e com a titulação escolar.

Conforme a hipótese geral perseguida, por um lado, ocorre um processo de concentração nas categorias ocupacionais que representam posição social mais alta e mais fortemente associada à titulação escolar mais valorizada na medida em que o cargo em disputa é hierarquicamente mais elevado. Além disso, nas disputas para cada cargo os efeitos desses recursos estão presentes nas chances de sucesso ou fracasso eleitoral. Por outro lado, além dos recursos associados à ocupação e ao grau de escolarização, na medida em que o cargo em disputa é mais elevado e as chances de sucesso são mais altas, também cresce o peso do "carisma de função" decorrente da ocupação prévia de cargos eletivos.

Em 2009, The Palgrave Handbook of Childhood Studies foi publicado, indicando o reconhecimento da área dos estudos da infância. Sabe-se que as crianças foram principalmente investigadas pela psicologia ou pela pedagogia e que as ciências sociais pouco produziram sobre elas, priorizando estudos sobre a família ou sobre a escola. Há pouco mais de vinte anos, entretanto, começaram a tornar-se o foco dos estudos sociais da infância, que a tomaram como um fenômeno social. Nesse sentido, foi definido um campo que investiga as crianças como agentes sociais, produtoras de culturas, e a infância como categoria na estrutura social, o que ampliou de modo significativo a produção de conhecimento sobre as relações sociais estabelecidas entre as próprias crianças (seus pares e com os adultos (relações intra e intergeracionais, sobre suas competências como protagonistas de suas vidas, como agentes sociais cuja ação modifica/transforma os mundos sociais nos quais estão inseridas.

    Arnau de Vilanova, one of the most important physicians of the Latin Middle Ages, was familiar with the vast majority of Aristotle's works that had been translated into Latin. He used a wide range of them, such as the Organon--the introductory books on logic - and the natural philosophical books, which cover a different branches of knowledge. He used Aristotle as an authority, trying to reconcile him with the field of medicine as practiced in his time. In so going, he defined a new theoretical model of medicine by the standards of natural philosophy, while continuing to emphasize the boundaries between medicine and natural philosophy. This paper represents to a first attempt to investigate the Aristotelian quotations in the medical writings of Arnau de Vilanova.

    The roots of physiology - on the basis of a systematic study of the human body's functions and their correlation to anatomy - date back to the works of Aristotle. The pupil of Plato and the tutor of Alexander the Great was a one-man university, and his contributions to the medical sciences have been immense. His surviving works highlight the first serious approach towards the rejection of metaphysical and mythological thought, and have: (i) demonstrated a deep appreciation for a systematic, non-metaphysical study of the natural world, (ii) set the foundations of comparative and human anatomy, (iii) established the first (indirect) definition of the "physiologist", and (iv) exercised a dominant influence upon the subsequent history of Hellenistic, European and Arabic Medicine. The current letter provides a short commentary on the historical account of Physiology as a scientific field and underlines the unique legacy that Aristotle has provided us with.

  14. Aristotle's Theory of Deviance and Contemporary Symbolic Interactionist Scholarship: Learning from the Past, Extending the Present, and Engaging the Future.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Prus, Robert

    Although his work has been largely overlooked by symbolic interactionists and other students of deviance, Aristotle (c384-322BCE) addresses community life, activity, agency, and persuasive interchange in ways that not only are remarkably consistent with contemporary symbolic interactionist approaches to deviance, but that also conceptually inform present day theories of deviance and provide valuable transhistorical comparison points for subsequent analysis. Following (1) a brief overview of an interactionist approach to the study of deviance, attention is given to (2) classical Greek conceptions of good and evil (especially as these are articulated by Plato) before turning more directly to (3) Aristotle's notions of wrongdoing as this is reflected in his considerations of community, morality, agency, and culpability. While informed by Aristotle's considerations of causality (as addressed in Physics and Metaphysics ), this statement builds most centrally on Aristotle's Nicomachean Ethics and Rhetoric . Striving for a broader understanding of deviance as a humanly engaged feature of community life, the paper briefly compares Aristotle's "theory of deviance" with Prus and Grills (2003) interactionist analysis of deviance. The paper (4) concludes with an assessment of the relative contributions of contemporary interactionist scholarship and Aristotle's materials for the study of deviance as a community-engaged process.

    Aristotle was concerned with the comedy genre as a kind of poetry. Its creators, the comic poets, interested him only marginally. This genological approach to its subject-matter dominated the theory and philosophy of art for subsequent centuries as evidenced by the subsequent elaborations of interpretations of Aristotle’s catharsis. The alternative approach focused instead on subjects as creators of art. As a consequence of the long-term development of anthropocentrism in the humanities...

    1996-01-01

    The Author examines two similar theories about the functioning of human brain as a refrigerator: Falk's and Fialkowski's (1990) and Aristotle's (IVth century b.C.). There are surprising, although fortuitous, convergences between the two, with the remarkable difference, however, that Artistotle's doctrine (later severely criticized by Galen) thinks of the brain merely as an organ for the cooling of the body's (the heart's) heat, while according to the modern radiator theory the human brain developed starting as a refrigerator of itself.

    Full Text Available A classificação de pacientes é essencial para o gerenciamento de uma unidade. Entretanto, a literatura não dispõe de conceituações de categorias de pacientes pediátricos. Os objetivos deste estudo foram definir e validar categorias de cuidado de pacientes pediátricos, de acordo com o grau de dependência da equipe de enfermagem. Utilizou-se revisão bibliográfica para definição das categorias de cuidado e a validação de conteúdo das categorias propostas foi realizada por um grupo de juízes envolvidos em assistência e gerência de unidades pediátricas e por juízes envolvidos em ensino e pesquisa de pediatria e construção de instrumentos de classificação de pacientes. Foram estabelecidas e validadas cinco categorias de cuidados: Mínimos, Intermediários, Alta dependência, Semi-intensivo e Intensivo. A validação das categorias de cuidado subsidiou a construção de um sistema de classificação de pacientes pediátricos que poderá contribuir para o processo de tomada de decisão do enfermeiro na prática gerencial e assistencial.

Para isso, foram ajustados um modelo de crescimento e produção para povoamento e outro para árvore individual, por meio de equações simultâneas e redes neurais artificiais, respectivamente. O volume de madeira por área foi estimado em diferentes idades e classes de produtividade. Foram avaliados dados de 63 parcelas permanentes de plantios clonais, não desbastados, do híbrido Eucalyptus grandis x E. urophylla, com os dados de 33 parcelas utilizados para o ajuste do modelo e o treinamento das redes neurais, e os das 30 parcelas restantes, para a validação dos modelos. As duas categorias de modelos ajustaram-se bem aos dados observados. No entanto, na validação dos modelos com dados independentes, o volume de madeira por área foi mais bem estimado com o modelo para árvore individual.

    Full Text Available O uso da categoria gênero, de forma acrítica, contribui para a repetição de uma divisão binária "naturalizada" dos sexos. Fundada na procriação, a heterossexualidade aparece como uma instituição política que define papéis e status no social, criando corpos atrelados aos gêneros feminino e masculino. Constroem-se assim identidades fictícias em torno do sexo biológico, erigindo a sexualidade em essência do ser. A utilização da categoria "heterogênero" aponta, em sua enunciação, para esta construção, dando lugar a perspectivas múltiplas de análise da construção do social.The uncritical use of the gender category contributes to the repetition of a binary and naturalized division of the sexes. Grounded in procreation, heterosexuality appears as a political institution that defines social roles and status, creating bodies attached to masculine and feminine gender. This is how fictive identities are built around biological sex, forging sexuality as the essence of being. The very employing of the category of "heterogender" points toward this construction and opens the space for manifold perspectives to analyze the construction of the social.

  3. God as Intellect in the philosophical Theology of Plato, Aristotle and Plotinus.

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Nadezhda Volkova

    2017-12-01

    Full Text Available The article gives an overview of the main stages in the development of philosophical theology in Plato, Aristotle and Plotinus, as well as its central concept - Active Intellect or God. It is shown, firstly, that Plato was the first who formulated the concept of a One omnibenevolent God. Plato opposed this doctrine to the gods of traditional mythology. In the "Timaeus" talking about the creation of the world, Plato represents God as an artisan, i. e. Demiurge, who arranges the World soul and matter with the help of the numbers. Therefore, God is introduced as an Intellect, because looking at an intelligible paradigm, he created the cosmos as its likeness. Secondly, it was shown that Aristotle made theology demonstrative theoretical knowledge. God as a subject of such knowledge is the pure actuality of thinking. Third, it is shown that Plotinus, continuing the line of Plato and Aristotle, gave philosophical theology a new, much more personal character. Theology for Plotinus is not only an demonstrative knowledge of the omnibenevolent God, but also a personal experience of reunion with him. A special attention in the article is paid for Plotinus' interpretation of the Platonic Demiurge. It is shown that Plotinus first connected the two aspects of the divine, namely the Demiurge-creator and the intelligible paradigm that are described in the "Timaeus," into the single hypostasis of Intellect. The main reason for this assertion was the necessity to postulate the unity of the intellect and the intelligible object as a necessary condition for the possibility of all cognitions. As a result, instead of the traditional idea of the two gods, Plotinus elaborates the doctrine of a single divine Intellect, combining both these aspects.

    Full Text Available The concept of ''place'' depends on the modern understanding of Being. Today, we regard place simply as a mathematical and measurable space which contains things. Furthermore, we regard this concept as a self-evident concept, while this conception belongs to modern understanding of Being. Since in modern ages Being is understood as an object, place is only measurable space that, in the final analysis, is not separate of the things themselves. But, in the traditional pre-modern thought, for example in Aristotle, since Being means actuality and substance, in accordance to this concept place is the last level of the container of things. Place, for Aristotle, is a natural thing containing natural things but he does not think about it as a mere quantitative thing (as Descartes thinks so. Everything, according to its special nature, has natural place. Soil, water, air and fire, each one has its own special place. Heidegger, who believes that old and modern Metaphysical thought are based on neglecting the Truth of Being, criticizes traditional conception of place and tries to think about it according to the human beings Dasein, nearness and distance to Being and beings.

  16. The Soul, the Virtues, and the Human Good: Comments on Aristotle's Moral Psychology

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Kathi Beier

    2016-12-01

    Full Text Available In modern moral philosophy, virtue ethics has developed into one of the major approaches to ethical inquiry. As it seems, however, it is faced with a kind of perplexity similar to the one that Elisabeth Anscombe has described in Modern moral philosophy with regard to ethics in general. For if we assume that Anscombe is right in claiming that virtue ethics ought to be grounded in a sound philosophy of psychology, modern virtue ethics seems to be baseless since it lacks or even avoids reflections on the human soul. To overcome this difficulty, the paper explores the conceptual connections between virtue and soul in Aristotle's ethics. It claims that the human soul is the principle of virtue since reflections on the soul help us to define the nature of virtue, to understand the different kinds of virtues, and to answer the question why human beings need the virtues at all.

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Márcia Seabra Neves

    2013-12-01

    Full Text Available Having been long established in western poetic tradition as a short composition of ethical intent, usually performed by anthropomorphized animals and conveying a rule of behavior, the fable has represented, ever since its origins, a key strategy of persuasion at the service of orators seeking to convince and influence an audience. Originally defined as a rhetorical genre and inevitably mirroring social and historical mutations, the fable as well as the moralities inferred from it have played varying functions and accomplished different goals in the course of centuries, so as to accommodate changing communicative needs. In this article, we seek to provide a critical and diachronic survey of the resonance of classical rhetoric in the definition of fable as a genre and examine its literary manifestations from Aristotle to the Enlightenment.

  18. Amenable to reason: Aristotle's rhetoric and the moral psychology of practical ethics.

    Science.gov (United States)

    London, A J

    2000-12-01

    An Aristotelian conception of practical ethics can be derived from the account of practical reasoning that Aristotle articulates in is Rhetoric and this has important implications for the way we understand the nature and limits of practical ethics. an important feature of this conception of practical ethics is its responsiveness to the complex ways in which agents form and maintain moral commitments, and this has important implications for the debate concerning methods of ethics in applied ethics. In particular, this feature enables us to understand casuistry, narrative, and principlism as mutually supportive modes of moral inquiry, rather than divergent and mutually exclusive methods of ethics. As a result, an Aristotelian conception of practical ethics clears the conceptual common ground upon which practical ethicists can forge a stable and realistic self-understanding.

  19. ABOUT ARISTOTLE'S PHILOSOPHY ON MIND È POSSIBILE UNA FILOSOFIA DELLA MENTE IN ARISTOTELE?

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Barbara Botter

    2011-03-01

    Full Text Available In the three books of the De Anima Aristotle ranges over a diverse array of philosophical and scientific topics, such as the nature of life, self-movement, the senses, perception, imagination, thought, and the relation between mind and body. As a result, this work may seem to be a strange collection of only marginally related philosophical and biological topics given our modern sensibilities. Nonetheless it is united by Aristotle's basic concern for the nature and functioning of life in all its diverse forms. This inquiry offers modern readers significant insight into contemporary debates in the philosophy of mind.

    Nei tre libri del De Anima Aristotele presenta differenti argomenti di interesse filosofico e scientifico in relazione alla natura della vita, al movimento, ai sensi, alla percezione e immaginazione, al pensiero e alla relazione fra mente e corpo. De Anima sembra, pertanto, una accozzaglia di teorie filosofiche e biologiche che solo marginalmente potrebbero impressionare un ricercatore contemporaneo. Nondimeno, questa impressione è solo superficiale, in quanto l’unità dell’opera è fornita da una acuta analisi della natura dell’essere vivente e delle sue funzioni proprie. Lo studio di Aristotele si rivela, perciò, un contributo significativo nel moderno dibattito nella filosofia della mente.

Nos atletas de futsal não foi verificada diferença significativa entre as posições (p = .69. Quando comparadas as categorias também não foram constatadas diferenças significativas, tanto no futebol (p = .12, quanto no futsal (p = .47. Pode-se concluir que os atletas de futebol e futsal parecem apresentar níveis semelhantes de potência muscular. Os centrais apresentaram maiores níveis de potência quando comparados aos médios, porém no futsal os atletas apresentaram níveis similares de potência. Independente da categoria, tanto os atletas de futebol quanto de futsal, apresentaram níveis semelhantes de potência muscular.

Sugere-se que o uso do conceito de pobreza refere-se a um marco teórico bem definido - proposto pelo neoliberalismo -, que, ao priorizar os "pobres" como alvo de suas políticas, implica o deslocamento da política social da noção universalizada de "direito" e, em última instância, sugere a supressão da idéia e da realidade da cidadania social.

    Full Text Available Este artigo reconstrói os momentos principais dos trabalhos de Dieter Henrich sobre a filosofia teórica de Immanuel Kant. Henrich procura esclarecer e recuperar os fundamentos da teoria do conhecimento de Kant, dos quais seus seguidores teriam se distanciado, a partir da análise da dedução transcendental das categorias. De início, Henrich investiga a estrutura da prova na dedução, comparando a primeira e a segunda edição da Crítica da Razão Pura. Em seguida, Henrich investiga no argumento kantiano a relação entre o princípio de identidade da consciência de si, por um lado, e objetividade, por outro. Por fim, estendendo a comparação à Crítica da Razão Prática, Henrich elucida o programa e a metodologia na dedução, mostrando como o "fato" legitimador se torna o elemento fundamental.This article reconstructs the principal moments of Dieter Henrich's work on Immanuel Kant's theoretical philosophy. Henrich tries to clarify and recover the foundations of Kant's theory of knowledge, from which his followers would have taken distance, based on the analysis of the "transcendental deduction of categories". Firstly, Henrich investigates the proof structure in the deduction, comparing the first and the second edition of the Critique of Pure Reason. Secondly, he investigates, inside Kantian argument, the relationship between the identity principle of self-consciousness and objectivity. Finally, extending the comparison to the Critique of Practical Reason, Henrich elucidates the program and methodology of deduction, showing how the legitimating fact becomes the fundamental element.

    Full Text Available No campo psiquiátrico, as possibilidades de prevenir o risco de desenvolver transtornos mentais começam a reunir interesse, motivar pesquisas e provocar controvérsias. Entre as diversas investigações sobre risco e categorias psiquiátricas que vêm sendo conduzidas no cenário internacional destacam-se as propostas destinadas a detectar e intervir precocemente no desenvolvimento da psicose. Os programas de detecção precoce da psicose têm como objetivo atingir duas categorias de pacientes: os que vivem o primeiro surto psicótico e aqueles considerados em estado mental de risco ou pré-psicóticos. Apesar da controvérsia em torno do estado mental de risco, com a elaboração de uma nova versão do DSM aventou-se a possibilidade de criar uma categoria específica que identificasse o risco para a psicose. Neste artigo analisamos as propostas de intervenção precoce na psicose de estratégia clínica dividindo essa análise em três etapas: 1- a do surgimento das ações no contexto de refinamento da clínica do primeiro surto; 2- a da sistematização controversa da noção de estado mental de risco; 3- a da formalização da proposta de nova categoria diagnóstica durante a elaboração do DMS-5.

    Full Text Available In this paper, I try to demonstrate how critical empiricism and philosophical reasoning intertwine with each other and affected the development of medicine. It is a case study considering the problems of generation and semen in the writings of Aristotle and Galen via relationship between such concepts as matter, form, movement, change, causes and some others. The main question addressed in the paper is the reason of Galen’s return to Hippocratic paradigm of two-semina (male and female. I argue that the reason is two-fold: 1 Different philosophical reasoning and erroneous understanding of some aspects of Aristotle’s embryological model by Galen. 2 Empirical discoveries, which proved to be wrong. I demonstrate that Galen’s understanding of form/matter relationship, and his view on matter as an underling principle conditioned his understanding of the notion of physical change, that allowed him to speak about conception only as quantitative mixture between equal substrata. Finally, I show that Galen’s view on teleology and his limited understanding of formal/final vs efficient causes and their relationship forced him to claim the inadequacy of Aristotle’s biology and necessitated Galen to introduce emendations in definitions of seminal faculties of genders and reproductive fluids.

    Full Text Available The article begins by recalling the most important understandings associated with the term prudence in the history of philosophy.Then it introduces the Aristotelian concept of prudence linked to practical truth—prudence seen in contrast to wisdom and knowledge of manufacturing. The article discusses various forms of rational knowledge associated with the right will, and proves the need of linking prudence to all the other ethical virtues based on moral principles. It emphasizes the problem of how to relate general principles to specific actions which involve particular goods. For resolving this problem, the article refers to Aristotle who sees the solution in political ethics which has a significant impact on individual behavior; consequently, good law and proper education are considered to be necessary conditions which allow to form the moral judgment skills for providing a morally good life. The article concludes with the claim that the proper field to capture the specificity of prudence includes the theory of human action and that of human morality.

  12. Available means: manifestations of Aristotle's three modes of rhetorical appeal in antinuclear fiction

    Mannix, P.J.

    1986-01-01

    The abundance of sympathetic scientists, military men and clergymen in antinuclear fiction reflects a public perception that authorities speak most knowledgeably about an issue. Other antinuclear works employ characters with less traditional ethical appeals: nurturing women, vital youths, and even infallible computers. Antinuclear fiction uses enthymeme and example to reflect the history of the nuclear weapons debate. Some works attach the immorality of the weapons by examining the moral dilemmas of nuclear scientists. Others admit the permanence of the nuclear threat. By arousing emotions, fiction is capable of mobilizing its audience's active support for the ideas it presents. The principal emotions that various antinuclear works arouse highlight the close relationship between literature and rhetoric. The most dominant emotions, pity and fear, are the two Aristotle links to tragedy. Scorn, the principal emotion that Dr. Strangelove arouses - is the crucial emotion on which all satire depends. However, the other principal emotion in anti-nuclear fiction - hope - has principally a rhetorical function ensuring that the feelings the works provoke will be channeled constructively.

  13. Perceiving the moral dimension of practice: insights from Murdoch, Vetlesen, and Aristotle.

    Scott, P Anne

    2006-07-01

    This paper situates the moral domain of practice within the context of a particular description of nursing practice - one that sees human interaction at the heart of that practice. Such a description fits not only with professional rhetoric but also with literature from patients and recent empirical work exploring the nature of nursing practice. Martha Levine in her 1977 description of ethics, within the context of nursing practice, indicated that what was important from an ethical perspective was how we interact with each other, with patients and colleagues, on a daily basis. What enables such interaction to display moral sensitivity, insight into patient need, and a focus on the good for the patient? Of relevance when answering this question is the empirical evidence indicating that professional socialization, as a nurse or a doctor, may dull the individual's moral sense. If this is the case, cognizance needs to be taken of such evidence when identifying theoretical approaches from mainstream ethics that may provide insight and value for nurse education. It is suggested that such insight and value can be gained from a consideration of the work of Aristotle, Murdoch, and Vetlesen.

    Full Text Available O artigo apresenta resultados de pesquisa realizada em Escola Pública e analisa as identidades produzidas e reveladas pela rica mistura das especificidades das categorias sociais no âmbito das aulas de Educação Física. Nestas, assim como em outras situações escolares, as diferenças hierarquizadas estão intrinsecamente relacionadas aos conflitos raciais e ao modo como as/os professores lidam, usualmente de modo desigual, com alunos e alunas. As formas como os/as docentes separam ou misturam meninas e meninos e como sistematizam e escolhem temas e conteúdos revelam a importância do debate tanto da heteronormatividade quanto da exaltação de determinada raça/etnia em detrimento de outras. Tais processos são exemplares da produção da homossexualidade como desvio e da negritude como defeito. Assim, ao pensar, como pano de fundo, no ardente culto aos privilégios heterossexuais e na negação da negritude, o texto propõe reflexões que abordam tanto gênero quanto raça como categorias que estão intrinsecamente relacionadas e que, tornam-se emergentes nas políticas educacionais e nas práticas pedagógicas, a partir de imbricado feixe de categorias sociais.

    Full Text Available Em galos de matriz pesada, o peso dos testículos se associa positivamente com a produção diária de espermatozoides e com a fertilidade. Contudo, os testículos de aves se localizam na cavidade abdominal, não sendo acessíveis para exame andrológico como os testículos de mamíferos. A avaliação reprodutiva de galos de matriz pesada é subjetiva e se baseia em características como peso corporal (PC, qualidade de pés e pernas e morfologia de cloaca e crista. Estudos que validem o potencial de associação dessas características fenotípicas com parâmetros da morfometria testicular são raros, principalmente quando se consideram galos de matriz pesada manejados em lotes comerciais. Escores de cloaca e de crista e parâmetros da morfometria testicular foram avaliados em galos Cobb 500 Slow adultos das categorias de PC leve (<4,300kg, médio (entre 4,300 e 5,250kg e pesado (≥5,250kg. O coeficiente de variação para PC foi de 12%. Os galos da categoria de PC pesado apresentaram testículos mais pesados e maiores escores de cloaca e de crista do que os galos da categoria de PC leve. Não houve diferença estatística entre as categorias de PC, considerando-se índice gonadossomático, porcentagens de túbulo seminífero e de tecido intersticial, diâmetro de túbulo seminífero e altura de epitélio seminífero. Correlação positiva, moderada e significativa foi observada entre peso de testículo e características de PC, escores de cloaca e de crista, diâmetro de túbulo seminífero e altura de epitélio seminífero. Um dos seis galos da categoria de PC leve avaliados quanto à histologia de testículo apresentou atrofia testicular. Em galos Cobb 500 Slow, conclui-se que o PC influencia o peso e a qualidade histológica de testículos e que os escores de cloaca e de crista podem ser utilizados com potencial moderado de predição para identificar galos com baixo peso de testículos.

    Full Text Available n “In search of Paul” (2004 Crossan and Reed argue that Paul’s vision and program were essentially in continuity with Jesus’: both opposed, be it in Galilean villages or Roman cities, an unjust imperial system by means of an alternative project of egalitarian, distributive justice. Although Crossan elsewhere demonstrates the deep roots of this concern in the Jewish tradition, he tends to downplay the importance of Greek contributions in this regard. The purpose of this essay will be to offer, in constant dialogue with Crossan (and Reed, a more refined comparison of social justice in Paul on the one hand and Plato, Aristotle and the Stoics on the other. If Paul tried to establish egalitarian and sharing Christian communities under the Roman empire, how do this vision and program compare and contrast with Plato's hierarchical but communal concept of justice, Aristotle’s distributive notion according to merit, and most importantly the Stoics’ argument of “oikeiosis” (i.e., other-concern by concentrical familiarization with the other? Imagine, say Crossan and Reed (CR hereafter in their recent book on Paul, the following dialogue between ourselves and Paul: Do you think, Paul, that all men are created equal and endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable rights? I am not speaking about all men, but about all Christians. But do you think, Paul, that all people should be Christians? Yes, of course,. And do you think, Paul, that all Christians should be equal with one another?Yes, of course. Then do you think, Paul, that it is God’s will for all people to be equal with one another? Well, let me think about that one for a while and, in the meantime, you think about equality in Christ. (CR 2004:234

    2015-01-01

    Full Text Available In this paper I will discuss Aristotle’s controversial philosophical views on women. I will critically examine three main interpretations of his claim that women have deliberative faculty “without authority”. According to the first line of interpretation, Aristotle has in mind that women’s incapacity of advice-giving and decision-making in public affairs are determined by conventions in the political context of his time. I will attempt to point out the disadvantages of this kind of interpretation. Furthermore, I will put forward the reasons why is implausible the more recent interpretation, given by Marguerite Deslauriers. According to her reading, the lack of authority of deliberative faculty in women means nothing else than the tasks over which women have authority are for the purpose of the tasks put forth by men. The prevailing interpretation among scholars is that, in Aristotle’s view, women are naturally inferior to men, due to the fact that they are all too frequently overruled by the irrational “forces” of their nature. I will argue that this line of interpretation elucidates what Aristotle presumably has in mind, although it makes his account of women and their rationality, if not inconclusive, then indisputably problematic. In other words, I attempt to prove that, if the prevailing line of interpretation is correct, such view of women produces some philosophically “insurmountable” problems for Aristotle. The aim of the last section of the paper is to point out how some of these problems could eventually be resolved. [Projekat Ministarstva nauke Republike Srbije: History of Serbian Philosophy

    Full Text Available O presente artigo tem por finalidade discutir a importância das categorias e dos processos de recategorização nas experiências de escrita e leitura do texto literário. Partimos do pressuposto de que os conhecimentos adquiridos pelos indivíduos ao longo da vida são imprescindíveis à construção dos sentidos e ao compartilhamento dos saberes. Em contrapartida, esse mesmos conceitos tornam-se relativamente comuns e inconscientes a ponto de provocar leituras (do mundo e dos textos bastante convencionais, as quais chegam a afastar o leitor de compreensões mais aprofundadas do texto literário. De um lado, há o escritor que “manipula” a linguagem e as categorias de forma mais intencional, misturando percepções para criação de novos sentidos. Do outro, há os leitores, que precisam desenvolver habilidades que lhes permitam transitar entre a língua e seus conhecimentos para ultrapassar os limites das convencionalidades e alcançar múltiplas significações. As contribuições teóricas de Lakoff (1987, Bazerman (2005, Fauconnier e Turner (2002 e Marchuschi (2006 permitem identificar processos de recategorização nas construções cognitivas, conceituais e textuais que os indivíduos empreendem. Quanto à leitura do texto literário, parece imprescindível que as categorias sejam encaradas como fluidas e passíveis de ressignificação, para que o leitor transpasse a superficialidade textual (sem negligenciá-la. Para exemplificar tal percepção, realizamos, ao final do artigo, uma análise de um trecho do poema O guardador de rebanhos, de Fernando Pessoa Fernando Pessoa sob o heterônimo de Alberto Caeiro.

  3. The Relationship between Virtue and Happiness in Aristotle and Al-Fārābī’s Views

    Full Text Available Throughout the history, different schools including both descriptive and non-descriptive ones, have been concerned with revealing relationship between happiness and virtue. As the First and Second teachers, Aristotle and Al-Fārābī can be named as having very important roles in this sense. So, the main tenet of ethics for these two philosophers is happiness, which is mostly derived from virtue. Considering theories of these two philosophers, it became evident that Aristotle had significant effects on Islamic thinkers. In other words, they claim they have been strongly influenced by Aristotle’s ideas. An obvious example for this can be ‘Nicomachean Ethics’ which attracted the attention of both western and eastern thinkers. As the greatest and the most salient commentator, Al-Fārābī could elaborate on Aristotle’s ideas on ethics and so suggest a comprehensive theory of ultimate happiness and Utopia' ('al-madīnat al-fāḍilah'. On the other hand, following Aristotle, Al-Fārābī divided ethics into two theoretical and practical branches. Hence, basis of ethical theories introduced by the two of these philosophers is based on happiness; However, Al-Fārābī added notions of Islam and mysticism to happiness. The most straightforward definition that Aristotle offers for happiness concerns an ultimate goal which humans are eagerly seeking to acquire it. He considers the best life as a happy life which can be reached by reasoning about humans’ actions and reactions and through adopting a viewpoint. In this sense, Aristotle introduced three types of lives, namely life with pleasure, political life, and life with intellect; he knows the third type of life better and more sublime than the other two. In his book on ethics, Aristotle defined happiness as soul’s performance according to perfect virtue. Regarding soul, Aristotle divided virtues into moral and rational ones. He believed that virtue is inasmuch as its genus is a hexis (habit

  5. The notion of Threshold: an investigation into conceptual accompaniment in Aristotle and Hegel

    2010-04-01

    Full Text Available What is unique to the idea of a threshold is that it is a threshold’s proper definition to generate or signal an inevitable accompanying image of a surrounding boundary or a further field of exploration, even though these accompanying terms or images seem like they should be excluded from its definition. Hegel described this phenomenon of the movement from a concept’s definition to its accompanying terms as the determination of a concept through ‘negation’, and viewed such a method as central to philosophical insight. However, what is not usually noted is that Hegel’s notion of negation is both crucially related to Aristotle’s thought on how definitions are formulated, as well as his postulations about opposites and their connection through a third substantial thing. Through a close examination of the problem of Aristotle’s categories, along with Aristotle’s description of the differentiae, movement, and the meaning of the copula, we can demonstrate that Aristotle’s thinking is at core structured by non-binary ‘threshold concepts’ which are essential to his philosophical system. Finally, we will show how Hegel attempted to take these essentially structural threshold concepts in Aristotle and turn their function into a methodology for both thought itself as well as the philosophical determination of the categories of being.Ce qui est particulier à l’idée de seuil c’est que c’est sa propre définition de générer un contour conceptuel qui va vers un autre champ d’exploration, même si ces images de contour semblent devoir être exclues de sa définition. Hegel a décrit ce phénomène du mouvement de la définition d’un concept vers les termes qui l’accompagnent comme la détermination d’un concept à partir de sa « négation » et a considéré cette méthode comme fondamentale à toute approche philosophique. Ce texte explore le fait que la notion hégélienne de la négation remonte aux idées d

Sorprende que, pese a su gran acervo de conocimientos biológicos, el estagirita nunca se planteó la posibilidad de que los organismos pudieran transformarse o estar conectados por relaciones de origen, ideas sustentadoras de la teoría de la evolución orgánica. Nosotros planteamos que hay en la biología aristotélica tres factores principales que explican esta falta de visión: (1 la idea eternizadora de la reproducción de los entes que no da lugar a la posibilidad de la transformación genérica de los organismos a través del nexo reproductivo; (2 el planteamiento que los fenómenos naturales tienen un propósito (causa final que determina su existencia, cuestión que lleva a desestimar la eventual existencia de conexiones en el origen entre los distintos géneros (sensu Aristóteles de organismos vivos; y (3 como consecuencia de lo anterior, la clasificación de los seres vivos según criterios analógico-funcionales que oscurece la existencia de vínculos estructurales y semejanzas de origen entre los organismos.

The modern interpretation of Greek culture was first introduced to the notion of the ajgwvn and the concept of the agonistic or competitive, “das Agonale”, by J. Burckhardt. Nietzsche elaborated it further, perceiving the phenomenon of competition as the origin of the fundamental Greek values, especially of justice and truth, and as the prerequisite for any fair evaluation. In Antiphon, the idea of competition runs both through his forensic speeches and philosophical writings. His Tetralogies in particular reveal the competitive dynamics of judicial trials. A judicial procedure is a competition, ajgwnivzesqai, between the truth of facts and the truth of words, which may result in an unjust verdict. In that case injustice has prevailed over justice and truth. What is thus at stake is the truth of facts, ajlhv/qeia tw`n pragmavtwn. Antiphon uses the Olympic and Pythian competitions to elucidate the important decisions and activities in human life, such as education, marriage, and the pursuit of happiness in general. Thucydides' History of the Peloponnesian War provides not only a description of the historical facts but also their evaluation. The development of military events, which is a competition of actions, ajgw;n e[rgwn, is elucidated by speeches, which frequently occur in antithetic pairs as antilogies, ajgw;n lovgwn. Political competition, however, is not limited to foreign policy but can be seen in the Athenian home politics as well. According to Alcibiades, the Athenian polis could only retain its supremacy through incessant competition, ajgwnizomevnhn aijei;. Nor does Thucydides neglect the Panhellenic significance of the Olympic festival. Aristotle's philosophy, on the other hand, appears to distance itself from competition, being based on rJa/stwvnh, "easiness", and diagwgh, “pastime”. None the less, the

    Full Text Available INTRODUÇÃO: A avaliação instrumentada dos saltos verticais informa sobre as capacidades funcionais e variáveis neuromusculares, auxiliando no atendimento dos atletas. Essencial dar atenção maior para as categorias de base, pois contém fases importantes do desenvolvimento dos atletas que serão o futuro do esporte. Objetivo: Avaliar as características funcionais e neuromusculares de atletas de futebol da categoria de base, no desempenho em saltos verticais. METODOLOGIA: Foram avaliados atletas de futebol com idade entre 15 e 17 anos. Foram realizados em duas plataformas de força os seguintes saltos verticais: salto em agachamento, salto em contramovimento, salto pliométrico de 40 cm de altura. Para análise das variáveis das forças concêntrica, excêntrica, impacto e altura dos saltos utilizou-se a prova estatística de Shapiro-Wilk, descrição das variáveis em média e desvio padrão, considerando quando p 0,05. Sem diferença na força concêntrica entre as categorias e os tipos de saltos. Maior força de impacto no contramovimento. Maior força em membro inferior direito em todos os saltos e variáveis de força. CONCLUSÕES: Encontramos assimetria entre os membros inferiores, podendo correlacionar com um déficit de potência muscular, má desaceleração do movimento e erros biomecânicos. Fatores predisponentes a lesões musculoesqueléticas, os quais podem ser prevenidos. A avaliação instrumentada da força através desses testes pode subsidiar os profissionais do clube como uma ferramenta de trabalho, capaz de aprimorar o treinamento, preparação e reabilitação. Entretanto, são necessárias mais pesquisas, de forma que momentos distintos da idade e da temporada do atleta sejam avaliados.

Masalah yang menjadi fokus penelitian adalah bagaimana negosiasi antara homoerotika dan prinsip machismo serta bagaimanakah faktor kelas sosial dan pendidikan keluarga memberikan pengaruh terhadapnya dalam novel tersebut. Dengan perspektif teori queer yang dicetuskan Annamarie Jagose dan metode pembacaan cermat, penelitian ini menghasilkan temuan bahwa machismo yang masih kuat dalam masyarakat Meksiko melahirkan perasaan homofobia, bahkan dalam diri kaum homoseksual sendiri. Kare-nanya, para gay cenderung menjadi rendah diri dengan orientasi seksualnya. Latar belakang pendidikan keluarga dan perbedaan kelas sosial memengaruhi persepsi tentangmachismo pada kaum lelaki. Keduanya merupakan faktor penting yang mendasari perilaku seseorang dalam me-nentukan orientasi seksualnya di lingkungan sekitar. The article strives to reveal the negotiation between homoeroticism and machismo norms highly valued in Mexican culture, as well as the impact of social class and academic background, toward such relationship in a contemporary Latin American literary work, Benjamin Alire Sáenz‘s Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe. The focus of the study is how the negotiation between homoeroticism and machismo values, as well as social class and academic background, affect that relationship. Using Annamarie Jagose’s queer theory and close reading technique, the study results in the fact that machismo, still strongly held in Mexican communities, begets a homophobic feeling even for the homosexuals themselves. Therefore, the gays tend to feel inferior with their sexual orientation. The family’s academic

Nas duas primeiras partes descrevo o contexto de emergência do primeiro grupo assim definido e abordo o caso que fixou a definição e sua correspondente operação acusatória. Em seguida, analiso as mudanças na representação coletiva e sua nova forma de acusação.

    Sandra Maria Gadelha de Carvalho

    Full Text Available Resumo: Os ensaios freireanos encontrados em Pedagogia do Oprimido se concretizam na relação teórico-prática e inovam-se associando o conceito de práxis à educação, a qual está a serviço da libertação, fundada na criatividade, no diálogo, na reflexão, na conscientização e em ações dos homens sobre a realidade visando a sua transformação. Na perspectiva de contribuir para a reflexão sobre o vínculo entre práxis e educação, o presente estudo, teórico-bibliográfico, tem como principal propósito identificar e analisar os sentidos da categoria práxis na obra Pedagogia do Oprimido. Debruçando nosso olhar investigativo sobre a obra em questão e dialogando com os escritos de Sánchez Vázquez (1977, Marx (2007, Konder (1992, entre outros, observamos a preponderância, nos sentidos de práxis propiciados por Freire, do caráter político, possibilitador do processo de conscientização dos homens e orientador de suas ações sobre o mundo real com vistas à sua transformação. A práxis em Freire remete à ideia de um conjunto de práticas visando à transformação da realidade e à produção da história. O que nos leva a crer que é sobre o tripé formado pela transformação de uma realidade injusta, pela transformação baseada na crítica dessa realidade e pelo seu conhecimento que Freire, a exemplo de Sánchez Vázquez (1977, elabora uma noção de práxis histórica e social.

Trazendo exemplos do trabalho de campo realizado na Travessa dos Venezianos, em Porto Alegre, o meu propósito neste artigo é analisar como a atribuição de valor a determinados bens, objetos e processos produz novos significados nos diferentes contextos onde ocorre, focando especialmente na construção de significados do ponto de vista da herança, da sacralidade do patrimônio e da dimensão de poder envolvida no processo. Considerando as ressignificações resultantes do reconhecimento patrimonial, analiso as diferentes categorias percebidas pelos habitantes citadinos que estão envolvidos com o patrimônio, não de forma passiva, mas detendo a capacidade de construir novos significados e dar sentido ao mundo ao seu redor. Procuro sublinhar a dimensão simbólica que está presente nesse processo em que a propriedade adquire sentido e passa a ser considera como patrimônio ou herança familiar.This article deals with the concept of heritage present in the public policies of cultural, artistic and historical heritage preservation, aiming to widen the apprehension of the concept.

    Full Text Available Qualquer que seja o ponto de partida dessa experiência que se denomina pensar, seu desenvolvimento e efetividade tomam a forma de uma manifestação. Como não há manifestação sem espectador, o pensamento depende, pois, do outro a quem ele se endereça: nem que, precária e temporariamente, eu seja para mim mesmo a figura desse outro. Assim, se os humanos são 'feitos de mundo', o pensamento humano é feito das palavras que, engendradas nesse e por esse mundo, fornecem, por sua vez, ao mundo os sentidos que o fazem ser para nós. Assim, talvez uma das primeiras tarefas da reflexão filosófica da educação seja a de contribuir para o questionamento dos sentidos e das torções de sentido a que os modismos, ou a simples rotina, submetem as palavras: neste artigo, entre tantas ocorrências que se poderia invocar, interessou examinar a noção de 'categoria', cuja trajetória parece especialmente ilustrativa dos riscos a que o uso dogmático pode submeter a reflexão.No matter what the starting point for this experience called thought, the development and existence of thought take on the shape of an event. Just as there cannot be an event without spectators, a thought depends on the person to whom it is addressed; even if precariously and temporarily, I become, for myself, the figure of this other person. Thus, if human beings are 'made of the world,' human thought is made of words which, created in and by this world, lead, in turn, to the world of meanings and what they signify to us. As such, perhaps one of the first tasks of philosophical reflection on education is to contribute to questioning the meanings and distorsions of meaning that trends, or simple routine, impose on words. In this article, among the many occurrences that could be mentioned, the goal was to examine the notion of 'category,' the path of which seems to be especially illustrative of the risks that dogmatic use can impose on reflection.

Para tanto, recorrer-se-á à análise das mediações apresentada por István Mészáros, em suas obras “Marx: a teoria da alienação” (1981 e “Para além do capital: rumo a uma teoria da transição” (2002, a qual fornece a chave para se pensar em uma educação escolar comprometida com a transformação social. Abstract: This paper aims to provide analysis of the school as a mediating key between man (singular and the knowledge which has been historically accumulated and produced by humanity (general; designing it in its relationship of interdependence with the totality of the society. This will be clarified by examining the ontological category of mediation, which allows understanding the man inserted in the context of capitalist society, the possibilities and limits which derive from it, and the issues related to Education in particular. Thus, we will open the analysis of mediation presented by István Mészáros, in his works "Marx: the theory of alienation" (1981 and "Beyond the capital: Toward a Theory of Transition" (2002, which provides the key to understand a school committed to the social transformation.

    ARISTOTLE (http://aristotle.ingv.it/) is a Pilot Project funded by the DG ECHO (EU Humanitarian Aid and Civil Protection) that provides expert scientific advice on natural disasters around the world that may cause a country to seek international help to the EU's Emergency Response Coordination Centre (ERCC) and, consequently, to the Union Civil Protection Mechanism Participating States. The EU is committed to providing disaster response in a timely and efficient manner and to ensure European assistance meets the real needs in the population affected, whether in Europe or beyond. When a disaster strikes, every minute counts for saving lives and rapid, coordinated and pre-planned response is essential. The ARISTOTLE consortium includes 15 partner institutions (11 from EU Countries; 2 from non-EU countries and 2 European organizations) operating in the Meteorological and Geophysical domains. The project coordination is shared among INGV and ZAMG for the geophysical and meteorological communities, respectively. ARISTOTLE harnesses operational expertise from across Europe to form a multi-hazard perspective on natural disasters related to volcanoes, earthquake (and resulting tsunami), severe weather and flooding. Each Hazard Group brings together experts from the particular hazard domain to deliver a `collective analysis' which is then fed into the partnership multi-hazard discussions. Primary target of the pilot project has been the prototyping and the implementation of a scalable system (in terms of number of partners and hazards) capable of providing to ERCC the sought advice. To this end, the activities of the project have been focusing on the establishment of a "Multi-Hazard Operational Board" that is assigned the 24*7 operational duty regulated by a "Standard Operating Protocol" and the implementation of a dedicated IT platform to assembly the resulting reports. The project has reached the point where the routine and emergency advice services are being provided and

    Full Text Available FUNDAMENTOS: Desde o início da epidemia da Aids as dermatoses têm sido freqüentemente descritas em pacientes com essa doença, com relatos de casos atípicos e estudos de séries de pacientes adultos; no entanto, há poucas publicações sobre alterações cutâneas em pacientes pediátricos com Aids. OBJETIVOS: Estudo prospectivo para avaliar a presença de dermatoses em 40 pacientes pediátricos com Aids. MÉTODOS: Quarenta pacientes, com idade inferior a 13 anos e portadores de Aids, foram estudados por um período de seis meses para avaliação de: número de alterações dermatológicas; suas características clínicas; distribuição conforme as categorias clínico-imunológicas e o valor da carga viral. RESULTADOS: A prevalência de dermatoses foi de 82,4%, na primeira consulta, e, no acompanhamento longitudinal, 92,5% dos pacientes tiveram alterações dermatológicas, com proporção de cinco diagnósticos por doente. As crianças com classificação clínico-imunológica grave e carga viral acima de 100.000 cópias/ml apresentaram maior número de alterações dermatológicas quando comparadas àquelas das categorias clínico-imunológicas leves. A proporção de diagnósticos por paciente na categoria clínica C foi de 6,8 e na A de 3,6; na categoria imunológica grave, de sete, e na leve de 3,7; e na carga viral > 100.000 de 7,3, e na < 100.000 de 4,2 (todos com significância estatística. CONCLUSÃO: As dermatoses foram freqüentes nas crianças com Aids e ocorreram em maior número nos pacientes pertencentes às categorias graves. A elevada freqüência de alterações da pele nos pacientes pediátricos com a doença indica ser imprescindível sua avaliação dermatológica minuciosa e freqüente.

Patients with a history of falling had higher rates of major bleeding (adjusted hazard ratio [HR] 1.39; 95% confidence interval [CI], 1.05-1.84; P = .020), including intracranial bleeding (adjusted HR 1.87; 95% CI, 1.02-3.43; P = .044) and death (adjusted HR 1.70; 95% CI, 1.36-2.14; P < .0001), but similar rates of stroke or systemic embolism and hemorrhagic stroke. There was no evidence of a differential effect of apixaban compared with warfarin on any outcome, regardless of history of falling. Among those with a history of falling, subdural bleeding occurred in 5 of 367 patients treated with warfarin and 0 of 386 treated with apixaban. Patients with atrial fibrillation and a history of falling receiving anticoagulation have a higher risk of major bleeding, including intracranial, and death. The efficacy and safety of apixaban compared

    This paper reports that before the era of FERC Order 436.500 and the onset of pipeline competition, making pipelines was a lot like making statues; all the causes and influences could be clearly and easily identified. New markets were well defined, the pipelines already serving the area built the new facilities, and the project didn't usually change too much from application through certification to construction. But the new era of pipeline rivalry has drastically altered the manner in which major new projects are pursued. The scramble for the scarce opportunities for rate base additions has caused some of the most profound changes: pipelines no longer need to feel confined to their traditional market areas---they can't afford to miss the opportunities

  7. Aristotle and Double Effect

    Di Nucci, Ezio

    2014-01-01

    There are some interesting similarities between Aristotle’s ‘mixed actions’ in Book III of the Nicomachean Ethics and the actions often thought to be justifiable with the Doctrine of Double Effect. Here I analyse these similarities by comparing Aristotle’s examples of mixed actions with standard...... cases from the literature on double effect such as, amongst others, strategic bombing, the trolley problem, and craniotomy. I find that, despite some common features such as the dilemmatic structure and the inevitability of a bad effect, Aristotle’s mixed actions do not count as cases justifiable...... through application of the Doctrine of Double Effect because they fail to meet the crucial necessary condition of the Doctrine according to which the bad effect can only be a merely foreseen side- effect and not an intended means....

    This paper begins by examining the ethical issues in public health and attempts to resolve them. It then considers three different paradigms responding to heroin addiction and their underlying moral philosophy. Firstly it examines prohibition and abstinence only treatment as an example of deontological ethics and harm reduction approaches as an example of a utilitarian ethics. Policy and practice problems resulting from weaknesses in the underlying philosophies are examined along with the futile debate between abstinence only and harm reduction approaches. A third paradigm, 'recovery' is examined as an example of Aristotelian virtue ethics. The paper concludes by considering the wider implications of this case study in terms of the need for further bioethical enquiry in public health and proposes virtue ethics as a paradigm within which ethical issues can be identified and debated.

    Ethical analysis in medicine has been dominated by an approach derived from "the four principles" which focus on actions. By contrast, consideration of the virtues emphasises the importance of the moral agent. A renewed emphasis on virtue ethics, not as a rival, but integrated into deontological ethics is proposed.

    Full Text Available O presente trabalho investiga por que os indivíduos tomam a decisão de abandono de categoria, tendo em vista diferentes contextos de estímulo e questionamento ao consumo. Para isso, foram escolhidas as categorias de automóvel e cigarro, considerando-se o conteúdo do sistema da publicidade, que, no caso do automóvel, é predominantemente de reforço ao consumo e, para o cigarro, de proibição dos anúncios por parte da indústria e demarketing através das campanhas governamentais. A pesquisa utiliza-se de metodologia qualitativa de coleta e análise dos dados, obtidos a partir de entrevistas em profundidade com 29 consumidores (ex-fumantes e ex-proprietários de automóveis. O trabalho enriquece os estudos de anticonsumo ao diferenciar três tipos de abandono e evidenciar que este não é apenas movimento de distanciamento de significados negativos, com o objetivo de proteger a autoestima (Hogg et al., 2009, mas também passível de operar diferenciação afirmativa, positiva e de reforço da autoestima. O abandono contingencial acontece quando o indivíduo, apesar de compartilhar os significados com os consumidores da categoria, vê-se forçado a abandonar o consumo. O abandono posicional é motivado principalmente pela rejeição às associações simbólicas que o consumo proporciona. Por fim, o abandono ideológico apresenta uma perspectiva coletiva, onde o indivíduo acredita que a sociedade (e não apenas ele individualmente deve abandonar aquele consumo.

    The demand for timely analysis and advice on global volcanic activity from scientists is growing. At the same time, decision-makers require more than an understanding of hazards; they need to know what impacts to expect from ongoing and future events. ARISTOTLE (All Risk Integrated System TOwards Trans-boundary hoListic Early-warning) is a two-year EC funded pilot project designed to do just that. The Emergency Response Coordination Centre (ERCC) works to support and coordinate response to disasters both inside and outside Europe using resources from the countries participating in the European Union Civil Protection Mechanism. Led by INGV and ZAMG, the ARISTOTLE consortium comprises 15 institutions across Europe and aims to deliver multi-hazard advice on natural events, including their potential interactions and impact, both inside and outside of Europe to the ERCC. Where possible, the ERCC would like a pro-active provision of scientific advice by the scientific group. Iceland Met Office leads the volcanic hazards work, with BGS, INGV and NOA comprising the volcano observatory team. At this stage, the volcanology component of the project comprises mainly volcanic ash and gas dispersal and potential impact on population and ground-based critical infrastructures. We approach it by relying upon available and official volcano monitoring institutions' reporting of activity, existing assessments and global databases of past events, modelling tools, remote-sensing observational systems and official VAAC advisories. We also make use of global assessments of volcanic hazards, country profiles, exposure and proxy indicators of threat to livelihoods, infrastructure and economic assets (e.g. Global Volcano Model outputs). Volcanic ash fall remains the only hazard modelled at the global scale. Volcanic risk assessments remain in their infancy, owing to challenges related to the multitude of hazards, data availability and model representation. We therefore face a number of

No entanto, mesmo que a categoria de pessoa no Haiti se ancore em uma nomenclatura “racial”, nèg não é uma categoria necessariamente atrelada à cor da pele, mas à qualidade da pertença de cada sujeito à nação haitiana. Identificar-se e ser identificado como um “nèg” atualiza, no processo identitário e no diálogo inter-subjetivo, diacríticos importantes, cujos sentidos são dados coletiva e contextualmente na rede de significados tecidas no contexto haitiano. Assim, pela natureza contextual e por sua constante dinâmica, é possível que uma “pessoa” que, aos olhos ocidentais, possa se assemelhar com o que nós entendemos como um/a “negro/a” no Brasil, no Haiti esta mesma “pessoa” pode não estar imediatamente identificada como um nèg ou como uma pessoa que  “pertença” ao Haiti. Em outras palavras, é preciso que cada nèg (para continuar sendo nèg e, portanto, “pessoa” atualize, de acordo com os contornos da cultura haitiana que inscrevem um nèg, as diversas obrigações rituais de pertença a esta categoria.

    Full Text Available Ethical education in Aristotle is analyzed and the formation of the virtuous character as a key factor in the achievement of happiness is emphasized. The happy life is based on virtue which, in turn, is based on education and not on any other forms of life. The formation on the activity of the soul is not enough to achieve a happy life. Rational virtue differentiates the good man from the others. It manifests itself in good acts expressed through balanced attitudes and contemplation. Ethical education is the basic criterion for character formation. The constant practice of virtuous deeds makes the human being achieve discernment to do what is appropriate and thus achieve virtue and happiness.

    Full Text Available O objetivo do artigo consistiu em discutir a medicalização do risco para a psicose; especificamente, a construção de uma nova categoria diagnóstica que vem sendo realizada pela força-tarefa de elaboração do DSM-5, nomeada "síndrome de risco para a psicose" e, mais recentemente, "síndrome dos sintomas psicóticos atenuados". A metodologia utilizada foi a revisão bibliográfica. Foi realizado um breve relato da genealogia do risco na psiquiatria. Na parte inicial do artigo, procurou-se discutir a medicalização de uma forma mais geral, focando sobre os aspectos do controle social e das tecnologias do self, sob uma ótica foucaultiana. Posteriormente, foi dada ênfase ao processo da medicalização do risco para a psicose; em especial, à construção de uma categoria relacionada a esse risco. Dentre os alcances desse processo, destacou-se a possibilidade de se intervir precocemente na psicose e com isso retardar seu início. Ainda não está claro se a intervenção precoce pode reduzir a gravidade do quadro quando instalado ou mesmo impedir seu aparecimento. Quanto aos limites, mostrou-se o risco de se produzir uma hipermedicalização com a construção da categoria, levando ao uso indiscriminado de medicamentos neurolépticos e aos riscos relacionados a esse uso, bem como à estigmatização dos indivíduos incluídos na categoria. Foi mostrado também o problema do elevado número de indivíduos "falsos positivos", ou seja, indivíduos que serão categorizados e mais tarde não desenvolverão qualquer transtorno psicótico. Procurou-se com o trabalho estabelecer uma crítica consistente à construção da categoria nosológica em questão.This paper aimed to discuss the medicalization of the risk for psychosis, and more specifically, the building of a new diagnostic category which has been carried out by the DSM-5 elaboration Task Force, named psychosis risk syndrome and, more recently, attenuated psychotic symptoms syndrome.

Este trabalho procura racionalizar o referido resultado revisitando as estimativas das importações do país desagregadas por “categoria de uso”. Os resultados reportados sugerem que a baixa elasticidade-preço das importações agregadas reflete fundamentalmente a baixa elasticidade-preço das importações de combustíveis, bens intermediários e de alguns tipos de serviços - notadamente, transporte, aluguel de equipamentos e pagamentos de royalties - produtos que, somados, respondem por pouco menos de dois terços do total importado. Isso ocorre porque vários desses produtos têm pouca ou nenhuma possibilidade de substituição por similares nacionais, devido principalmente a deficiências estruturais na oferta nacional.

    Full Text Available Gauthier, Santos (1996 descrevem a sócio-poética como uma abordagem no conhecimento do ser humano e da sociedade, um caminho para a produção do conhecimento, que por meio de práticas diferenciadas de pesquisa e do educar mutual transforma poeticamente o saber para melhor conhecer. Os idealizadores da sócio-poética utilizam os lugares sócio-míticos, como categorias de produção e análise dos dados. Mas estimulam aqueles que trabalham com esta abordagem, a criarem novas técnicas e vivências, que facilitem a produção de dados no grupo pesquisador. Atendendo a este desafio e inspiradas no conceito de Imaginação Material de Gaston Bachelard, na Técnica da Imaginação Ativa de C.G.Jung e nos experimentos de crescimento da gestalt-terapia de John Stevens, criamos novas técnicas e categorias de estudo na abordagem sócio-poética denominando-as de Técnica dos Elementos Materiais. Como os primeiros filósofos gregos, acreditamos que muito das imagens que produzimos provêm da provocação dos 4 elementos materiais (água, terra, fogo e ar. A pesquisa foi desenvolvida com diferentes grupos de enfermeiras, professoras de enfermagem, pós-graduandas em enfermagem e equipe de enfermagem de um hospital psiquiátrico. Evidenciou-se que a Técnica dos Elementos Materiais favorece a expressão de conteúdos inconscientes ou silenciados que interferem no cuidado de enfermagem, possibilitando à enfermeira explorar criativamente a si mesma, para inovar sua prática profissional.

    Full Text Available Contemporary education systems are in a constant process of restructuring, thus requiring philosophy to reconsider the basic assumptions of education. The phenomenon of education can only be defined and clarified historically, i.e. with reference to the ancient Greek paideia. The Greek culture created a comprehensive system of both education and pedagogy as a theory of education, teaching, and knowledge (Dilthey.  (1 A phenomenological approach to Aristotle's pedagogy. Aristotle's theory of physical, moral, and political education (Nicomachean Ethics and Politics is founded upon the notion of the natural development of every being. In addition, Aristotle creates the concept of philosophical pedagogy. A philosophically educated person (ho pepaideumenos has the competence to treat problems emerging with the formation of particular sciences, and to reflect on the method of each scientific discipline. This philosophical culture is also connected with dialectic, rhetoric, and politics.  (2 Nietzsche's ideas on education and culture are presented in two of his early works: On the Future of Our Educational Institutions and We Philologists. In his criticism of the German education system of his time, he explains his basic historical assumption that the real homeland of education is the Hellenic world. A restructuring of the education system cannot be carried out without the Greek and Roman antiquity as the embodied categorical imperative of all culture. A general education which disregards antiquity is considered barbaric. However, Nietzsche's philosophy of education remains unfinished, giving no definite conclusions.  (3 Camus’ philosophy describes the modern West European culture as nihilistic. The essence of nihilism is a systematic ignorance of the limits of human nature, which can lead to historical crimes and to destroying the conditions for the human existence in the world.

    People currently regard justice as the main principle of institutions and society,while in ancient Greek people took it as the virtue of citizens.This article analyzes Aristotle's virtue of justice in his method of virtue ethics,discussing the nature of virtue,how justice is the virtue of citizens,what kind of virtue the iustice of citizens is,and the prospect of the virtue of iustice against a background of institutional justice.Since virtue can be said to be a specific individual character,Aristotle also defines the virtue of justice as the character of justice,with which citizens act justly and desire to do what is just.The virtue of justice is also an individual ethical virtue,differing from others for it is at the same time a social ethic.We can call the virtue of justice a"non-individual individual ethical virtue."It has been explained as between pure altruism and egoism,which is a wrong explanation.John Rawls regards justice as the first virtue of social institutions,challenging Aristotle's virtue,of justice,an assertion which also needs further deliberation.

    Aims The risk of stroke in patients with atrial fibrillation (AF) increases with age. In the ARISTOTLE trial, apixaban when compared with warfarin reduced the rate of stroke, death, and bleeding. We evaluated these outcomes in relation to patient age. Methods and results A total of 18 201 patients with AF and a raised risk of stroke were randomized to warfarin or apixaban 5 mg b.d. with dose reduction to 2.5 mg b.d. or placebo in 831 patients with ≥2 of the following criteria: age ≥80 years, body weight ≤60 kg, or creatinine ≥133 μmol/L. We used Cox models to compare outcomes in relation to patient age during 1.8 years median follow-up. Of the trial population, 30% were 0.11 for all). Results were also consistent for the 13% of patients ≥80 years. No significant interaction with apixaban dose was found with respect to treatment effect on major outcomes. Conclusion The benefits of apixaban vs. warfarin were consistent in patients with AF regardless of age. Owing to the higher risk at older age, the absolute benefits of apixaban were greater in the elderly. PMID:24561548

    Full Text Available This article is a debate on research that deals with categories pre-defined in the public agenda. It is supported by an experience of doing an anthropological study for the Tupinambá of Olivença aimed at the identification of a juridical category of “indigenous land” defined by the 1988 Constitution of Brazil. The main argument developed in this article starts with the assumption that in the contemporary situation the definition of public categories that involves cultural and social rights of minorities, such as terra indígena, have been defined in public debates in which anthropologists were involved. One of the necessary results of such a situation is that anthropology cannot see these categories as exogenous concepts to be criticized, but as categories of knowledge to be addressed. A detailed proposition of how I have addressed the issue concerning the delimitation of the seacoast border of the indigenous land of the Tupinambá of Olivença is here developed, showing how ethnography in anthropology is a particularly good device to achieve this challenges. Through the Tupinambá case, it is showed how ethnography as situated knowledge, enmeshed in a comparative project and prepared to incorporate the struggles that people face when dealing with conflict situations, intertwines public and indigenous definitions of social categories (in this case, the land through what is here named compatible agendas.Neste artigo proponho uma forma de a antropologia lidar com investigação sobre categorias de conhecimento que foram definidas previamente na agenda pública.

    Although cardiac troponin is associated with outcomes in atrial fibrillation (AF), the complementary prognostic information provided by cardiac troponin I (cTnI) and cTnT is unknown. This study investigated the distribution, determinants, and prognostic value of cTnI and cTnT concentrations in patients with AF. Samples were collected. At the time of randomization, we analyzed cTnI and cTnT concentrations of 14806 AF patients in the Apixaban for Reduction in Stroke and Other Thromboembolic Events in Atrial Fibrillation (ARISTOTLE) trial using high-sensitivity assays. Correlations (Spearman), determinants (multivariable linear regression), and outcomes (adjusted Cox models and c-statistics) were investigated. Concentrations of cTnI and cTnT were correlated (r = 0.70) and measurable in most participants [cTnI 98.5% (median 5.4 ng/L, ≥99th percentile in 9.2%) and cTnT 93.5% (median 10.9 ng/L, ≥99th percentile in 34.4%)]. Renal impairment was the most important factor affecting the concentrations of both troponins. cTnI increase was more associated with heart failure, vascular disease, and persistent/permanent AF, and cTnT with age, male sex, and diabetes. Over a median 1.9 years of follow-up, patients with both troponins above the median had significantly higher risk for stroke/systemic embolism [hazard ratio (HR) 1.72 (95% CI 1.31-2.27)], cardiac death [3.14 (2.35-4.20)], and myocardial infarction [2.99 (1.78-5.03)] than those with both troponins below median (all P Chemistry.

    Apixaban is approved for the prevention of stroke and systemic embolism in patients with nonvalvular atrial fibrillation. However, the Apixaban for Reduction in Stroke and Other Thromboembolic Events in Atrial Fibrillation (ARISTOTLE) trial included a substantial number of patients with valvular heart disease and only excluded patients with clinically significant mitral stenosis or mechanical prosthetic heart valves. We compared the effect of apixaban and warfarin on rates of stroke or systemic embolism, major bleeding, and death in patients with and without moderate or severe valvular heart disease using Cox proportional hazards modeling. Of the 18 201 patients enrolled in ARISTOTLE, 4808 (26.4%) had a history of moderate or severe valvular heart disease or previous valve surgery. Patients with valvular heart disease had higher rates of stroke or systemic embolism and bleeding than patients without valvular heart disease. There was no evidence of a differential effect of apixaban over warfarin in patients with and without valvular heart disease in reducing stroke and systemic embolism (hazard ratio [HR], 0.70; 95% confidence interval [CI], 0.51-0.97 and HR, 0.84; 95%, CI 0.67-1.04; interaction P=0.38), causing less major bleeding (HR, 0.79; 95% CI, 0.61-1.04 and HR, 0.65; 95% CI, 0.55-0.77; interaction P=0.23), and reducing mortality (HR, 1.01; 95% CI, 0.84-1.22 and HR, 0.84; 95% CI, 0.73-0.96; interaction P=0.10). More than a quarter of the patients in ARISTOTLE with nonvalvular atrial fibrillation had moderate or severe valvular heart disease. There was no evidence of a differential effect of apixaban over warfarin in reducing stroke or systemic embolism, causing less bleeding, and reducing death in patients with and without valvular heart disease.

    Cancer is associated with a prothrombotic state and increases the risk of thrombotic events in patients with atrial fibrillation. We described the clinical characteristics and outcomes and assessed the safety and efficacy of apixaban versus warfarin in patients with atrial fibrillation and cancer in the Apixaban for Reduction in Stroke and Other Thromboembolic Events in Atrial Fibrillation (ARISTOTLE) trial. The association between cancer and clinical outcomes was assessed using Cox regression models. At baseline, 1236 patients (6.8%) had a history of cancer; 12.7% had active cancer, and 87.3% had remote cancer. There were no significant associations between history of cancer and stroke/systemic embolism, major bleeding, or death. The effect of apixaban versus warfarin for the prevention of stroke/systemic embolism was consistent among patients with a history of cancer (event/100 patient-years = 1.4 vs 1.2; hazard ratio [HR], 1.09; 95% confidence interval [CI], 0.53-2.26) and no cancer (1.3 vs 1.6; HR, 0.77; 95% CI, 0.64-0.93) (P interaction = .37). The safety and efficacy of apixaban versus warfarin were preserved among patients with and without active cancer. Apixaban was associated with a greater benefit for the composite of stroke/systemic embolism, myocardial infarction, and death in active cancer (HR, 0.30; 95% CI, 0.11-0.83) versus without cancer (HR, 0.86; 95% CI, 0.78-0.95), but not in remote cancer (HR, 1.46; 95% CI, 1.01-2.10) (interaction P = .0028). Cancer was not associated with a higher risk of stroke. The superior efficacy and safety of apixaban versus warfarin were consistent in patients with and without cancer. Our positive findings regarding apixaban use in patients with atrial fibrillation and cancer are exploratory and promising, but warrant further evaluation. Copyright © 2017 Elsevier Inc.

Foram coletadas 127 peças publicitárias, nas quais se observou o cumprimento ou não das leis que regulamentam a propaganda de medicamentos no Brasil e os argumentos mais prevalentes de cada propaganda. A Denominação Comum Brasileira aparece em 121 propagandas (95%, sempre em segundo plano, com tamanho de letras menor. Nenhuma das peças publicitárias analisadas cumpre na íntegra as exigências da legislação. Considerando os Critérios Éticos para Promoção de Medicamentos da OMS, apenas 59% apresentam a composição do produto, e 43% apresentam precauções; em 73%, o tamanho das letras e o espaçamento entre frases é pequeno, dificultando sua leitura. Apenas 73% das propagandas apresentam a posologia. Os argumentos mais utilizados nesta amostra são: eficácia, segurança, comodidade posológica, rapidez de ação, alta tolerabilidade. A inobservância da legislação em vigor, a ausência de precauções e excesso de argumentos, levam à conclusão de que há a necessidade de instrumentos efetivos de controle visando a uma melhor qualidade nas informações distribuídas aos prescritores.Drug advertisements for prescription drugs gathered from private clinics and hospitals in southern Brazil were analyzed.

    Full Text Available Comer, alimentar ou nutrir circulam na nossa cultura, aproximadamente, como sinônimos e desse modo não dão conta das transformações que vêm ocorrendo na alimentação, que desejadas ou indesejadas contam com um hibridismo de padrões que representa uma mudança tanto de regras como de preferências alimentares. O objetivo do artigo é tornar essas concepções de senso comum categorias de análise e interpretação para pesquisas das Ciências Humanas e da Saúde, numa perspectiva teórica, através da conceituação. Neste espaço interdisciplinar da Nutrição e das Ciências Sociais, o alimento aparece associado a uma função natural (biológica, numa concepção em que natureza se contrapõe à cultura, e a comida assume sentidos e significados culturais (simbólicos. A alimentação expressa divisão do trabalho, da riqueza, é criação histórico-cultural através da qual se pode estudar uma sociedade. Atribui-se à Nutrição um sentido de ação racional, oriundo da constituição dessa ciência na modernidade, inserida num processo histórico de racionalização científica do comer e do alimentar-se. Consideramos que através da conceituação na prática interdisciplinar de pesquisa, que envolve um espaço compartilhado de saberes, podemos ser menos limitados por um modelo teórico uniformizado de saber e mais livres para pensar questões sobre a vida.Eating, nourishment or nutrition circulate in our culture as synonyms and thus do not account for the changes that occur in nourishment, which intended or unintended, have a hybridization pattern that represents a change of rules and food preferences.

    Full Text Available Education is better seen as a help in order to grow in freedom and dignity, inside a society. Aristotle helps us to better understand this question. He gives us suggestive insights of the concepts of man, and education, very much related to the polis. The social dimesion of education is always present in the Greek tradition, but in Aristotle there is also a genuine knowledge of the individual. There is no educative problem separeted to the social and political roots.La educación se puede ver como una ayuda para crecer en libertad y dignidad. Será educativo aquello que favorezca la perfección de la persona; y por eso, cuando se habla de la educación como un factor de reproducción social, se intentará referir unos factores externos a la propia persona, y determinarlos según la armonía personal. Esta cuestión de plena actualidad tienen un planteamiento sugerente en Aristóteles quien nos ofrece una visión del hombre y de la educación, en estrecha relación con la polis, que son de interés. El carácter social de la educación está siempre presente en la tradición y pensamiento griego, puesto que el hombre es un animal político. Sin embargo, también está vivo en este autor el conocimiento del valor individual. No existía un problema educativo separado del aspecto político y moral.

    This study sought to characterize major bleeding on the basis of the components of the major bleeding definition, to explore major bleeding by location, to define 30-day mortality after a major bleeding event, and to identify factors associated with major bleeding. Apixaban was shown to reduce the risk of major hemorrhage among patients with atrial fibrillation in the ARISTOTLE (Apixaban for Reduction in Stroke and Other Thromboembolic Events in Atrial Fibrillation) trial. All patients who received at least 1 dose of a study drug were included. Major bleeding was defined according to the criteria of the International Society on Thrombosis and Haemostasis. Factors associated with major hemorrhage were identified using a multivariable Cox model. The on-treatment safety population included 18,140 patients. The rate of major hemorrhage among patients in the apixaban group was 2.13% per year compared with 3.09% per year in the warfarin group (hazard ratio [HR] 0.69, 95% confidence interval [CI]: 0.60 to 0.80; p < 0.001). Compared with warfarin, major extracranial hemorrhage associated with apixaban led to reduced hospitalization, medical or surgical intervention, transfusion, or change in antithrombotic therapy. Major hemorrhage followed by mortality within 30 days occurred half as often in apixaban-treated patients than in those receiving warfarin (HR 0.50, 95% CI: 0.33 to 0.74; p < 0.001). Older age, prior hemorrhage, prior stroke or transient ischemic attack, diabetes, lower creatinine clearance, decreased hematocrit, aspirin therapy, and nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs were independently associated with an increased risk. Apixaban, compared with warfarin, was associated with fewer intracranial hemorrhages, less adverse consequences following extracranial hemorrhage, and a 50% reduction in fatal consequences at 30 days in cases of major hemorrhage.

    Full Text Available Resumo: Neste artigo, pretendemos discutir como, no decorrer das manifestações sociais que se desenrolaram no Brasil em 2013, em especial no Rio de Janeiro, uma categoria semântica ocupou papel central: a de “vândalos”. Eleito pela mídia hegemônica como termo síntese das ações violentas dos manifestantes, o signo “vândalos” permitiu a construção, via indústria cultural, de uma série de representações sociais sobre as manifestações, os manifestantes e seus atos. A mesma categoria vai ser utilizada, em estratégias diversas, por aqueles que se colocaram, discursivamente, contra as representações produzidas pela grande mídia, através de deslocamentos e reapropriações. Neste trabalho, buscamos não só mapear esses embates, mas indicar o caráter ambivalente das representações, como produto e processo da relação entre os sujeitos e a realidade social.Palavras-chave: Representações sociais – Vândalos – Disputas discursivas. Abstract: In this article, we intend to discuss how, within social protests that occurred in Brazil on 2013, especially in Rio de Janeiro, a semantic category has occupied a key role: the so-called "vandals". Singularized by the hegemonic media as the term that best signified the violent actions of some participants of the riots, the sign "vandals" has made possible the construction, via culture industry, of a series of social representations about the social protests, the participants and its acts. The same category is used, in different strategies, by those who have discursively manifested a discordance against the hegemonic media representations of the social protests through displacement and reappropriation. In this article, we will try to map such debates and also to single out the ambivalent character of the social representation, both as product and process of the relationship between subjects and social reality.Keywords: Social representations – Vandals – Discursive disputes.

    Full Text Available Este artigo é resultado de estudos teóricos e pretende apresentar algumas contribuições ao estudo da psicologia histórico-cultural do desenvolvimento, mais especificamente no que se refere à relação existente entre as categorias de trabalho e atividade. Estudos desta natureza são importantes para psicólogos, pedagogos e demais profissionais envolvidos direta ou indiretamente com a prática educativa, na busca por compreender o problema da periodização do desenvolvimento em uma perspectiva não naturalizante. Nesta direção, a categoria de atividade principal mostra-se central como força motriz do processo de desenvolvimento humano, portanto encontra-se estreitamente ligada ao lugar que cada indivíduo ocupa na sociedade de classes bem como às condições objetivas de sua existência material. O estudo do desenvolvimento coincide com o estudo da pessoa concreta, imersa numa trama de relações sociais e num sistema político e econômico; enfim, outra coisa não é senão o estudo da história objetivada em cada indivíduo particular.This article is the result of theoretical studies and intends to show some contributions to the Development Historical-Cultural Psychology, more specifically, regarding to the relationship between the work and activity categories. These studies show to be relevant to the psychologists, pedagogues and other professionals involved directly or indirectly with the educational practice, in the quest to understand the problem of development periodization in a non-naturalistic perspective. In this way, the main activity category shows up as a central driving force of human development process and, therefore, it is closely linked to the place which each individual takes up in the class society as well as the objective conditions of his material existence. The development study matches with the study of specific person, immersed in a web of social relations; in a political and economic system; and finally

    Full Text Available Este trabalho expõe uma interpretação das categoriais sociais representativas no Brasil na década de 1970, retratadas em cinco canções de Chico Buarque de Hollanda na peça Ópera do malandro. Procuramos demonstrar, a partir dos exemplos musicais propostos, que Hollanda fez da relação tensa entre censura e produção artística a base de sua matéria poética, imprimindo um sentido político-social original em sua obra musical, indo além dos limites da canção de protesto tradicional. Essa opção do autor teve como base a proposta teórico-prática do dramaturgo e teórico alemão Bertolt Brecht, que, em seus escritos sobre ópera, defende uma maior independência da música com relação à ação dramática.

An additional proof to the fragments of the first part of the natural right (cf.

The parameter of evaluation and comparison will be the Kantian observations concerning the categories in Kritik der reinen Vernunft and Kritik der praktischen Vernunft works.

  10. Aristotle vs. Plato: The Balkans' Paradoxical Enlightenment

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    D. Michalopoulos

    2007-09-01

    Full Text Available As it occurred in West, Aristotle’s thought was in Byzantium the main organon of philosophical meditation within the frame of the Christian Faith. Nonetheless, from the ninth century on it was a revival of Platonism that took place – of Neo-Platonism at the beginning and of Platonism itself at the end. The Church, initially indifferent, became suspicious only when, at the turning of the fourteenth to the fifteenth century, the Platonism seemed to engender somewhat a latent paganism; but the Patriarchate was not then able to fight that tendency. So only after the 1453 capture of Constantinople by the Ottomans, Gennadius Scholarius managed to root out from the Greek lands Platonism and its crypto-pagan extension. Be that as it may; the main paradox of the Balkan history is that in the early seventeenth century some leading Greek scholars endorsed the materialist interpretation of Aristotle’s thought – as it was taught in the University of Padua by Cesare Cremonini; and as a corollary this materialistic philosophical system began being taught in both Constantinople and Athens. It was that very way that the Enlightenment took birth in the Balkans – and somehow became a State ideology - long before its prevalence in France. And of course all this had as a result a turn toward Physics and Chemistry with far-reaching consequences

  11. Teaching Socrates, Aristotle, and Augustine on Akrasia

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    J. Caleb Clanton

    2015-04-01

    Full Text Available A long-standing debate among moral philosophers centers on the question of whether ignorance is always at the root of moral wrongdoing, or whether, in certain cases, wrongdoing stems from something else—namely akrasia. This paper is a discussion of how undergraduate core curriculum teachers can incorporate Augustine’s work into this debate. I begin by briefly reconstructing Socrates’ and Aristotle’s accounts of wrongdoing, and then I sketch an Augustinian approach to the issue. Socrates contends that ignorance is the fundamental source of all wrongdoing; hence, akrasia is illusory. Though Aristotle’s view can seem more roundabout than Socrates’, it, too, is plausibly interpreted as entailing that robust, open-eyed akrasia is impossible. For Augustine, prior to receiving the illumination that comes with God’s grace, an individual’s sinfulness can be characterized as being the result of ignorance concerning the proper focus of one’s love. However, after receiving this illuminating grace, sinful action can be characterized as an instance of akrasia.

  12. Aristotle, nursing and health care ethics.

    Scott, P A

    1995-12-01

    Even a brief consideration of the nature of nursing will indicate that an ethical dimension underlies much, if not all, of nursing practice. It is therefore important that students and practitioners are facilitated in developing an ethical awareness and sensitivity from early in their professional development. This paper argues that Aristotelian virtue theory provides a practice-based focus for health care ethics for a number of reasons. Also, because of his emphasis on the character of the moral agent, and on the importance of perception and emotion in moral decision-making, Aristotelian virtue theory provides a useful supplement to the traditional duty-based approaches to health care ethics analysis, which are increasingly being identified in the literature as having limits to their application within the health care context.

    Full Text Available INTRODUÇÃO: Em 2002 a Nomenclatura Brasileira para Laudos de Citopatologia Cervical Uterina foi revisada, sendo criada uma categoria para atipias de significado indeterminado (ASI e elaborada uma categoria de origem indefinida (ASIOI. Assim como as células atípicas de significado indeterminado de origem escamosa (ASCUS e as células atípicas de significado indeterminado de origem glandular (AGUS, a categoria diagnóstica ASIOI é controversa. Apesar disso, nenhum estudo nacional anterior a este investigou sua validade. OBJETIVO: Este trabalho tem como objetivo principal investigar a importância da categoria ASIOI. Secundariamente, visa ainda contribuir com a divulgação da Nomenclatura Brasileira para Laudos de Citopatologia Cervical Uterina, através de sua publicação na íntegra. MATERIAIS E MÉTODOS: Este estudo resultou da colaboração de dois laboratórios privados de anatomia patológica e citopatologia. Os casos foram selecionados a partir de arquivos de exames citopatológicos, realizados entre 2000 e 2004, com diagnóstico de ASCUS ou AGUS e seguidos por exame histológico. Foram selecionados e revisados 30 casos, sendo identificados campos citológicos diagnósticos de ASIOI, ASCUS e AGUS. RESULTADOS: Dos 30 casos, 26 foram selecionados para o estudo após revisão citopatológica. Desses, 19 apresentavam apenas campos citológicos com diagnóstico de ASCUS e/ou AGUS, sendo utilizados como grupo-controle. Apenas sete casos continham campos compatíveis com ASIOI, dos quais 4 (57,1% estavam associados a AGUS; 1 (14,3% a ASCUS; 1 (14,3% estava associado a ambos; e 1 (14,3% não possuía alterações compatíveis com ASCUS e/ou AGUS. DISCUSSÃO: Os casos de ASIOI encontrados mostraram forte associação com a categoria AGUS e com alterações glandulares na histologia. A maior parte dessas correspondeu a alterações reacionais e benignas, exceto por um caso de displasia e um de adenocarcinoma in situ. O diagnóstico de ASIOI

    Full Text Available As revistas vendidas nas bancas têm se tornado textos de autoajuda e o estudo de suas matérias possibilita compreender como seus discursos são construídos, como se tornam repertórios utilizados para dar sentido à vida. No caso das revistas que versam sobre a esfera da saúde, que prescrevem receitas de tratamento, prevenção e até estilos de vida saudáveis, os estudos permitem compreender os significados dos discursos sobre corpo e saúde. Em algumas matérias, por vezes o destaque dado ao físico se faz acompanhar da inserção de aspectos mentais. Tal fato originou o presente estudo que tem por objetivo clarificar como esta conexão mente e corpo é conceituada e prescrita nessas páginas. Seis matérias de uma revista brasileira de saúde, publicadas entre agosto de 2005 e fevereiro de 2006, foram analisadas quanto ao conteúdo dos textos e ao destaque gráfico e textual. Considerou-se significativo o formato em que esta mídia opera, pois associado às categorias temáticas: autodiagnóstico, o lugar das emoções, as prescrições e a causalidade reforça estilos de vida saudáveis. Para tanto o leitor deve aprender a se autodiagnosticar e controlar suas emoções, consideradas contrapostas ao físico. As matérias delineiam um campo de saúde em que a cisão mente corpo se adensa e se prolonga, instaurando a medicalização da sociedade.Magazines sold on newsstands have become self-help texts, and the study of the topics covered makes it possible to understand how the discourses are constructed, how they become repositories used to give meaning to life. In the case of magazines that deal with the sphere of health, prescribing methods of treatment, prevention and even healthy lifestyles, the studies allow us to understand the meanings of discourses about body and health. In some articles, the emphasis that sometimes highlights the physical aspect is accompanied by the inclusion of mental aspects. This fact gave rise to this study

  10. The Four Causes of ADHD: Aristotle in the Classroom

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Marino Pérez-Álvarez

    2017-06-01

    Full Text Available Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD is one of the most well-established and at the same time controversial disorders to the extreme of being placed in doubt. In the first of two parts, the established position is critically reviewed, beginning with showing fallacious reasoning on which the diagnosis is based, lacking clinical proof. Similarly, a certain rhetoric and metaphysics in genetic and neurobiological research is highlighted, where, for example, a meager accumulation of data is offered as robust conclusions, and correlates and correlations as causes and bases. However, that may be, the controversy is silenced in a dialog of the deaf between “defenders” and “critics.” with no way out in sight in empirical and scientific terms. A new meta-scientific position is necessary to analyze the science of ADHD itself and its social uses. In this respect, the second part introduces Aristotle’s four causes, material, formal, efficient, final, as an instrument of enquiry. According to this analysis, ADHD is not the pretended clinical entity as presented, but a practical entity providing a variety of functions. The implications would be rather different from the usual.

    2015-01-01

    If being were ‘dynamic,’ would it be more amenable to a definition? In this paper I present a number of preliminary considerations for an exploration of this question. Working from the methodological stance of analytical ontology, I assume that the first task for an ontology of dynamic being...... heuristic leads to a class of inferential data (aspectual inferences) that analytical ontologists have all but overlooked so far. In addition, I suggest that the passage also can offer some ideas about how one might formulate, in mereological terms, a component of an implicit definition of dynamicity....

    Ramirez Riquelme, Angelica Beatriz

    1998-12-31

    The development of a licensing system for primary category radioactive installations is described, which aims to satisfy the needs of the Chilean Nuclear Energy Commission`s Department of Nuclear and Radiological Safety, particularly the sections for Licensing Outside Radioactive Installations and Safety Control. This system involves the identification, control and inspection of the installations, their personnel and connected activities, for the purpose of protecting the population`s health and the environment. Following the basic cycle methodology, a systems analysis and engineering stage was prepared, establishing the functions of the system`s elements and defining the requirements, based on interviews with the users. This stage was followed by the design stage, focusing on the data structure, the software architecture and the procedural detail. The codification stage followed, which translated the design into legible machine-readable format. In the testing stage, the entries that were defined were proven to produce the expected data. Finally and operational and maintenance stage was developed, when the system was installed and put to use. All the above generated a useful system for the Licensing section of the Department of Nuclear and Radiological Safety, since it provides faster and easier access to information. A project is described that introduces new development tools in the Computer department following standards established by the C.CH.E.N.

    Full Text Available In the history of poetry adventure from ancient times to date, thepoet’s invariable characteristic has been his creativity glorified all thetime. However, creativity criteria may vary in different periods. The firstdescription of Poetry and Poet go back to Poetics of Greek philosopherAristotle, who had an understanding close to modern literary theoryand performed the first systematic study on the literature principlesfunctioning and organization based on perceptible data. The mostimportant aspect of Poetics in terms of the subject of this study is thedescription of the poetry language as a specific area of language and theclassification of the functional elements of this structure. However,poetry elements, which have become a tradition in historical processwith changing sense and expectation of art due to many reasons, wereneeded to be reviewed again and caused the pursuit of novelty in 20thcentury. The opposition to the tradition and pursuit of novelty have ledus to find intersection point between Russian futurism and the “Garip”movement in Turkish poetry, although they are not followers of oraffected by each other. Shershenevich and Orhan Veli, explained theiropposition to the traditional and stereotype attitudes towards poetry foryears such as vocabulary, rhyme and meter and rhetorical devices intheir poetry as well as their poetic knowledge by giving justifications.While reviewing the characteristics of poetry, Russian futuristssupported the tendency to neologism, and Garip poets supported thetendency to simplified language of the people that new poetryconception is addressed to. When discussing the common and differentpoint of views of three different authors from different ages, in the poetictext we have studied by giving examples from 20th century Russian andTurkish poetries, it was found out that the idea welcomed for long thatthe poetry is valuable in proportion to its compliance with specific formshas not been accepted.

    This article discusses the advantages of category III large gamma irradiator compared to the others, with emphasis on aspects of radiological protection, in the industrial sector. This category is a kind of irradiators almost unknown to the regulators authorities and the industrial community, despite its simple construction and greater radiation safety intrinsic to the model, able to maintain an efficiency of productivity comparable to those of category IV. Worldwide, there are installed more than 200 category IV irradiators and there is none of a category III irradiator in operation. In a category III gamma irradiator, the source remains fixed in the bottom of the tank, always shielded by water, negating the exposition risk. Taking into account the benefits in relation to radiation safety, the category III large irradiators are highly recommended for industrial, commercial purposes or scientific research. (author)

    Full Text Available A influência do marxismo na Sociologia do trabalho e no feminismo foi e ainda é muito grande, o que trouxe uma ênfase nos estudos sobre o operariado. Com isso, o campesinato tornou-se um tema de difícil articulação dentro do marxismo e do feminismo. Havia uma crença generalizada de que liberação das mulheres passaria necessariamente por sua independência financeira, fruto da inserção individual no mercado de trabalho. Como 'encaixar' aí as mulheres em regime de trabalho familiar? Elas não foram bem 'encaixadas', havendo com freqüência um 'viés urbano' perpassando as análises do trabalho feminino no campo. O surgimento de vários movimentos de mulheres agricultoras no Brasil colocou em cheque a visão corrente de 'vítimas' que se tinha sobre elas, na medida em que estão se impondo como 'atoras'. Neste momento, porém, os movimentos feministas estão mais voltados para questões de reconhecimento, de identidade, que de redistribuição de renda, propriedades e, o que nos interessa mais, terra. Nosso objetivo neste trabalho é desvelar os preconceitos imbricados na análise do campesinato e trazer de volta questões sobre a condição econômica desigual das mulheres envolvidas na agricultura familiar, cujo acesso à terra se faz quase unicamente pelo casamento. O direito de tomar decisões sobre a própria vida pode ser desvinculado da obtenção de um salário individual, mas não do acesso a uma renda própria.The influence of Marxism on Labor Sociology and Feminism was and still is very strong. This has led to an emphasis on working class studies. Questions concerning the peasantry became difficult to work with within Marxism and Feminism. There used to be a general belief the liberation of women would necessarily require their financial independence, which would be the result of individual insertion in the labor market . This has raised the question of where to consider the role of women's work within the family. This issue was not adequately considered by theory that was frequently dominated by urban perspectives and that overlooked issues of the role of women in rural activities. The rise of various rural women's movements in Brazil has questioned the "victim" status normally attached to such women, to the degree that they have proved to be true social "actors". At this time, however, feminist movements are more concerned with issues of recognition and identity, then with income redistribution, property, and that which most interests us, land. The purpose of this paper is to unveil the prejudices permeating the analysis of peasantry and bring back the issue of the economic inequality of women involved in family agriculture, whose access to land is achieved almost exclusively through marriage. The right to take decisions about one's own life may not depend on an individual salary, but it certainly depends on access to one's own source of income.

  10. Humans, Animals, and Aristotle. Aristotelian Traces in the Current Critique of Moral Individualism

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Martin Huth

    2016-12-01

    Full Text Available The concept of moral individualism is part of the foundational structure of most prominent modern moral philosophies. It rests on the assumption that moral obligations towards a respective individual are constituted solely by her or his capacities. Hence, these obligations are independent of any ἔθος (ethos, of any shared ethical sense and social significations. The moral agent and the individual with moral status (who is the target of a respective action are construed as subjects outside of any social relation or lifeworld significations. This assumption has been contested in the last decades by diverse authors with very different approaches to moral philosophy. In the last years, an increasing number of philosophers like Cora Diamond and Alice Crary (with a Wittgensteinian background, but also phenomenologists like Paul Ricœur, Klaus Held, and Bernhard Waldenfels question the presupposition that individual capacities are the agent-neutral and context-neutral ground of moral considerations. This critique of moral individualism in different contemporary discourses shows a striking similarity between Wittgensteinian and phenomenological philosophers as their critical inquiry of prominent theories like the ones by Immanuel Kant, John Rawls, Peter Singer or Tom Regan is derived from mostly implicitly efficacious Aristotelian theorems. Telling examples are the ἔθος (ethos as pre-given normative infrastructure, the ἕξις (hexis as individual internalization of the ethos, the φρόνησις (phronesis described as a specific practical know-how in contrast to scientific knowledge, and not at least the definition of the human being as ζῷον πολιτικόν (zoon politikon. However, the Aristotelian sources of this movement have not yet been scrutinized systematically. This paper aims, first, to reveal the significance of these sources to make them visible and, second, to contribute to the notion of the topicality of Aristotelian philosophy in current debates on ethics.

    Perlovsky, Leonid I

    2010-05-01

    Processes in the mind: perception, cognition, concepts, instincts, emotions, and higher cognitive abilities for abstract thinking, beautiful music are considered here within a neural modeling fields (NMFs) paradigm. Its fundamental mathematical mechanism is a process "from vague-fuzzy to crisp," called dynamic logic (DL). This paper discusses why this paradigm is necessary mathematically, and relates it to a psychological description of the mind. Surprisingly, the process from "vague to crisp" corresponds to Aristotelian understanding of mental functioning. Recent functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) measurements confirmed this process in neural mechanisms of perception.

    Full Text Available Human affectivity is a research topic situated at the intersection of psychology, philosophical anthropology, theory of action and ethics. This article reconstructs the Aristotelian theory of emotions in the context of his theory of aspiration (o/recij and in terms of their function as primary evaluators of situations, which forms the basis for virtue ethics. The Aristotelian model integrates desire, motivation and morality for a rational being in community. Affects (pa/Jh reveal the profile of relevance of the world to a person as an indispensable basis for the work of practical reason. They are analysed in the dimensions of their cognitive core, their social, bodily, and motivational aspects. Affectivity constitutes a primary evaluative response to situations and thereby disposes human beings to realise their call to morally good, virtuous and fulfilling action.

  14. Aristotle: A performance Impact Indicator for the OpenCL Kernels Using Local Memory

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Jianbin Fang

    2014-01-01

    Full Text Available Due to the increasing complexity of multi/many-core architectures (with their mix of caches and scratch-pad memories and applications (with different memory access patterns, the performance of many workloads becomes increasingly variable. In this work, we address one of the main causes for this performance variability: the efficiency of the memory system. Specifically, based on an empirical evaluation driven by memory access patterns, we qualify and partially quantify the performance impact of using local memory in multi/many-core processors. To do so, we systematically describe memory access patterns (MAPs in an application-agnostic manner. Next, for each identified MAP, we use OpenCL (for portability reasons to generate two microbenchmarks: a “naive” version (without local memory and “an optimized” version (using local memory. We then evaluate both of them on typically used multi-core and many-core platforms, and we log their performance. What we eventually obtain is a local memory performance database, indexed by various MAPs and platforms. Further, we propose a set of composing rules for multiple MAPs. Thus, we can get an indicator of whether using local memory is beneficial in the presence of multiple memory access patterns. This indication can be used to either avoid the hassle of implementing optimizations with too little gain or, alternatively, give a rough prediction of the performance gain.

  15. Development of the ARISTOTLE webware for cloud-based rarefied gas flow modeling

    Science.gov (United States)

    Deschenes, Timothy R.; Grot, Jonathan; Cline, Jason A.

    2016-11-01

    Rarefied gas dynamics are important for a wide variety of applications. An improvement in the ability of general users to predict these gas flows will enable optimization of current, and discovery of future processes. Despite this potential, most rarefied simulation software is designed by and for experts in the community. This has resulted in low adoption of the methods outside of the immediate RGD community. This paper outlines an ongoing effort to create a rarefied gas dynamics simulation tool that can be used by a general audience. The tool leverages a direct simulation Monte Carlo (DSMC) library that is available to the entire community and a web-based simulation process that will enable all users to take advantage of high performance computing capabilities. First, the DSMC library and simulation architecture are described. Then the DSMC library is used to predict a number of representative transient gas flows that are applicable to the rarefied gas dynamics community. The paper closes with a summary and future direction.

  17. Economics, chrematistics, oikos and polis in Aristotle and St. Thomas Aquinas

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    José Luis Cendejas Bueno

    2017-05-01

    Full Text Available In Aristotle’s thought, economic activity refers to a kind of praxis consisting in allocating the human and material means that constitute the oikos –the domestic community- to fulfil its natural ends: ensure both life and the means of life. By means of natural chrematistics -acquisitive art- families acquire the necessary means for this, which come from production and exchange. Families group together in the political community (polis whose end is living well, according to virtues, among which justice is highlighted as the ‘complete virtue’. For its part, the Christian êthos regards every human act, internal and external, of this complete system (polis, oikos and chrematistics as tending towards its ultimate purpose (beatitudo. In St. Thomas’s view, eternal law harmonizes necessity of irrational beings, loving God’s action (divine law, natural law, and the contingency of ‘human things’ where the economy is included. Trading activity is lawful if it is at the service of the oikos or polis and according to how is exercised, by following commutative justice. The family, political and religious character of human nature establishes what the natural-necessary consists of, embracing, apart from bodily goods, others derived from considering social status and the life chosen (civil, religious, active or contemplative. Economic activity based on this anthropological root has a specific place as a part of an ordered natural-legal totality that provides the economy with meaning and sufficient moral guidance.

    Upton, Joseph; Janeka, Ivo; Ferraro, Nalton

    2014-01-01

    This phrase, a favorite of Dr. Joseph E. Murray, can be interpreted in many ways. Mathematically, the whole is equal to the sum of its parts, neither more nor less. Psychological Gestalt theory would maintain that the whole is something else or something different than the sum of its parts. Merely adding up the component parts is meaningless compared with the "part-whole" relationship (SYNERGETICS: Explorations of Thinking. MacMillan Publishing Co, Inc; 1975). Organizational pundits maintain that this principle describes the synergy, which exists between individuals working together in a cooperative effort. Collectively, they are able to achieve an outcome superior to that of 1 or 2 people working alone. This concept is vintage Joseph E. Murray. He was an integral part of the Peter Bent Brigham team, which transformed the dream of organ transplantation into clinical reality over 50 years ago. Although many advances in medicine are made by the serendipity of a prepared mind making a critical observation (Alexander Fleming and penicillin), individual brilliance (Judah Folkman and angiogenesis), or by technology (magnetic resonance imaging), most are achieved by groups of physicians and scientists working together. All have prepared minds. When the Peter Bent Brigham Hospital physicians and researchers at the Harvard Medical School dedicated all of their energy on solving the problems of end-stage renal disease, their effort was concentrated and primarily regional. Today, this cooperation is global, as communication has been facilitated by the Internet, iPhone, iPad, video conferencing, electronic libraries, and the like.

  3. Ancestor Worship in The Logic of Games. How foundational were Aristotle's contributions?

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    John Woods

    2013-12-01

    Full Text Available Notwithstanding their technical virtuosity and growing presence in mainstream thinking, game theoretic logics have attracted a sceptical question: "Granted that logic can be done game theoretically, but what would justify the idea that this is the preferred way to do it?'' A recent suggestion is that at least part of the desired support might be found in the Greek dialectical writings. If so, perhaps we could say that those works possess a kind of foundational significance. The relation of being foundational for is interesting in its own right. In this paper, I explore its ancient applicability to relevant, paraconsistent and nonmonotonic logics, before returning to the question of its ancestral tie, or want of one, to the modern logics of games.

  5. Aristotle and Autism: Reconsidering a Radical Shift to Virtue Ethics in Engineering.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Furey, Heidi

    2017-04-01

    Virtue-based approaches to engineering ethics have recently received considerable attention within the field of engineering education. Proponents of virtue ethics in engineering argue that the approach is practically and pedagogically superior to traditional approaches to engineering ethics, including the study of professional codes of ethics and normative theories of behavior. This paper argues that a virtue-based approach, as interpreted in the current literature, is neither practically or pedagogically effective for a significant subpopulation within engineering: engineers with high functioning autism spectrum disorder (ASD). Because the main argument for adopting a character-based approach is that it could be more successfully applied to engineering than traditional rule-based or algorithmic ethical approaches, this oversight is problematic for the proponents of the virtue-based view. Furthermore, without addressing these concerns, the wide adoption of a virtue-based approach to engineering ethics has the potential to isolate individuals with ASD and to devalue their contributions to moral practice. In the end, this paper gestures towards a way of incorporating important insights from virtue ethics in engineering that would be more inclusive of those with ASD.

    Full Text Available Judith Butler se apropria de vários conceitos da psicanálise, mas não explora o estranho (Unheimliche freudiano. Trata-se, aqui, de investigar a função política desse conceito, considerando que a norma o converte em abjeção, como em casos de homofobia e transfobia. No encontro entre um sujeito cujo semblante sexuado é estruturado dentro da hegemonia heterossexual e um sujeito com semblante abjeto, o primeiro espera ver i(a, um outro-espelho de sua imagem narcísica, mas se defronta com a, o estranho abismo do desejo do Outro. Com Lacan, esse Unheimliche é produtor de angústia no eu do sujeito, o que faz vacilar suas identificações em uma experiência de indeterminação. Porém, nossas formas de vida sustentam ficções identitárias demasiado rígidas, que convertem essa angústia do indeterminado em medo e violência. Em certos casos de homofobia e transfobia, um sujeito com semblante normalizado vivencia de maneira improdutiva a ameaça de dissolução do seu eu frente a um estranho que é tido como abjeto, inumano, monstruoso. Torna-se crucial pensar formas de vida em que experiências de indeterminação possam ser vividas de maneira produtiva, em que identificações sejam mais porosas em relação àquilo que não se reduz à forma determinada de um eu.

A escolha do on-line se deu a partir da constatação do enorme crescimento e segmentação do mercado pornô nesse espaço, bem como das constantes tentativas nacionais e transnacionais de controle do conteúdo veiculado na rede, cujos principais pontos de discussão são a pornografia, a pedofilia e a pirataria. Assim, pretendo neste paper, a partir de uma perspectiva antropológica, abordar as maneiras como o online atua no mercado erótico, especialmente no Brasil, aumentando a segmentação do gênero pornográfico e permitindo o crescimento da chamada pornografia alternativa (altporn. Para tal, tomarei como base dados de minha pesquisa empírica enfocando o site brasileiro pioneiro na produção e comercialização de pornografia alternativa. Meu intento é perceber de que modo se organiza a produção desse ramo da pornografia - com estreita ligação com os avanços tecnológicos - e quais convenções de gênero estão operando nesse segmento a partir da observação dos corpos, desejos e práticas sexuais encontrados nos vídeos e imagens.This article discusses the topic of porn videos found on the Internet in order to think about the possible impacts and modifications provided by this technology in pornographic representation. The choice for the online was due to the tremendous growth and market segmentation of porn in this space, as well as national and transnational constant attempts to control the content posted on the network, whose main points of discussion are pornography, pedophilia and piracy. So, in this paper, I intend, from an anthropological perspective, to address the ways in which online acts in the porn market, especially in Brazil, increasing segmentation of the genre pornographic and enabling the growth of pornography so called alternative (altporn. To do this, I take examples of my database of empirical research focusing on the pioneer Brazilian website in the production of alternative pornography. My intent is to understand the ways in which this kind of production are organized - with close liaison with technological advances - and what are the genre conventions that operate in this segment from the observation of bodies, desires and sexual practices found in videos and pictures.

    Full Text Available In this paper, we introduce some relationships between elements coming from psychological referentials with the purpose of developing a referential framework for interpreting and understanding the actions that take place during school practices with computer simulations that include, in addition to concepts of the learning process of a particular discipline, concepts that refer to social relationships, not only interactions among people but also between people with to culture, social institutions and social structure. From a social constructivist approach is proposed to constitute the object of study in the system “person + tool” in the situated context in the learning of science in the school, in order to obtain categories that allow us investigate the strategic knowledge employed by the students when they use educational simulations and the influence of the latter in science learning. We believe that the study of the strategic knowledge performed by the students in science classes when they interact with computer simulations is an issue of the technological mediation of learning. For that reason, from the socio-historical perspective we have selected the following categories: instrumental mediation, the distributed character of cognition, the zone of proximal development and the situated character of cognition.En este trabajo se presentan algunas relaciones entre elementos provenientes de referenciales psicológicos a los fines de elaborar un marco referencial que permita interpretar y comprender las acciones que se realizan durante prácticas escolares con simulaciones computacionales que incluya, además de conceptos propios del proceso de aprendizaje de una disciplina particular, conceptos que refieran a las relaciones sociales, tanto interacciones entre personas como los vínculos de las personas con la cultura, las instituciones sociales y la estructura social. Desde un enfoque constructivista social, se propone constituir el objeto de estudio en el sistema persona más herramienta en un contexto situado en el aprendizaje de la ciencia escolar, a fin de obtener categorías para indagar sobre el conocimiento estratégico empleado por los estudiantes al utilizar simulaciones educativas y la influencia de estas en el aprendizaje de las Ciencias. Consideramos que el estudio del conocimiento estratégico puesto en juego por alumnos en clases de ciencias cuando interactúan con simulaciones computacionales es un problema de la mediación tecnológica de los aprendizajes. Por tal razón, desde la perspectiva socio histórica se han seleccionado las siguientes categorías: la mediación instrumental, el carácter distribuido de la cognición, la zona de desarrollo próximo y el carácter situado de la cognición.

    2017-10-01

    Full Text Available O texto tem como objetivo apresentar uma leitura biopolítica da obra de Hannah Arendt, o que requer uma análise da relação entre vida e política, a partir dos elementos biopolíticos contidos na filosofia da autora, especialmente no que diz respeito ao totalitarismo como forma de governo sem precedentes na história da humanidade. Por conseguinte, examinaremos o processo de politização do biológico que elevou a vida a bem supremo, resultando em consequências radicais para o domínio público. Para tanto, lançaremos mão também do arcabouço conceitual de Agamben, principalmente, dos conceitos de vida nua, estado de exceção, homo sacer, para que possamos trazer à luz os elementos biopolíticos que perpassam a obra arendtiana e que fundamentam o jogo político das atuais democracias liberais.

    Full Text Available Martello in 1714 and Metastasio in 1773-1783: two Italian authors who, bothbelonging to the Accademia dell’Arcadia, tried, on one hand, to reinterpret andunderstand the dictates of Aristotle’s Poetics (largely “twisted” during the previouscentury by a number of zealous scholars through the literary and philosophical innovations of their time; and, on the other hand, to apply this new perspective to the important genre of musical theatre or dramma per musica. We look for (and compare eventual links between both authors in the treatment of Aristotelian prescriptions applied to the rich patterns of late baroque theatre and melodramma.

  2. Praxis, Sittlichkeit and Communicative Action. On the connection between praxis, Sittlichkeit and communicative action in Aristotle, Hegel, Habermas and Honneth

    2012-09-01

    Full Text Available The concept of praxis is one of the most fundamental concepts in the history of political philosophy. The most famous example may be Marx’s statement in the eleventh thesis on Feuerbach. The close relation between praxis and polis was grounded in Aristotle’s political philosophy. Hegel leads this concept further with his concept of praxis as Sittlichkeit. Honneth and Habermas are both grounded in the young Hegel’s writings when they try to extrapolate what is essential in Hegel’s concept of praxis and generate a new concept, which may be valid for our time. Honneth is standing by Hegel’s concept of recognition, which he then is forced to leave many years later when rediscovering Hegel’s concept of Sittlichkeit. However, Honneth fails to reconcile praxis and Sittlichkeit. In contrast, Habermas sets in a hermeneutic maneuver language as a substitute for Hegel’s concept of spirit. With this new, effectively metaphysical concept, he is able to formulate a practical philosophy in which both praxis and Sittlichkeit are summarized in communicative action. Habermas’s practical philosophy follows Hegel's and extends its roots into the history of ideas, back to Aristotle’s foundation of the concept of praxis and, in a broader sense, to the antique democracy of Athens.

    Full Text Available This paper presents a new, intriguing finding and discusses some ofits theoretical implications: phonetic categorization, including majorclass membership, is entirely predictable from phonotactic biases inthree Brazilian Portuguese word databases. The predictors are logfrequencies of ‘VC, ‘CV and V’CV sequences consisting of the 7stressed vowels combined with the 19 onset consonants, plus the 5Southeastern pre-stressed vowels. Correct vowel categorizationarises through discriminant analysis of ‘VC and ‘CV data. Correctconsonant categorization arises through discriminant analysis of V’CVdata. Results are consistent across databases and, thus, strongly suggestthat statistical biases in the lexicon can be so stable as to code phoneticcategories. The findings and their corollaries bear on the issue of therelationship of lexical phonotactics to speech dynamics.

    This paper illustrates the Life Cycle Analysis (LCA) activities performed during the preparation of the Spanish Product Category Rules (PCR) relative to the construction sector. Specifically, the study presents the results obtained from the life cycle analysis of the floor and wall tile sector, which served as the basis for the drafting of the PCR required for the definition of Environmental Product Declarations (EPD). More than 50 Spanish companies in the ceramic tile sector participated in the study, providing inventory data on the manufacture of their products. Additionally, bibliographic information and the GaBi 4 software database by PE International were used to complete background and generic data, such as those related to energy and transportation processes. EPDs are voluntary declarations based on LCA studies that permit the disclosure and dissemination of environmental information quantified over the life cycle of a product. The definition of PCRs for ceramic tiles was performed in accordance to the UNE EN ISO 14025 and ISO 21930 standards and they have been submitted to industries and professional association public consultations. PCRs have been developed in the context of the DAPc program (promoted by the Catalan Government and CAATEEB) and represents the first eco labelling activity for building products in Spain.

    This article discusses a largely overlooked aspect of the last work by Johannes Broscius (1585 - 1652), his Apologia pro Aristotele et Euclide contra Petrum Ramum et alios of 1652. While the past researchers focused their attention on the evaluation of Broscius's contribution to mathematics, geometry in particular, they ignored the socio-scientific aspect of his work, that is the way Peter Ramus and his followers have been presented and how did the dark legend of Ramus have been thus revived at the Central-European university in the middle of 17th century. I am showing types of rhetorical arguments employed by Broscius and analyse the way he portrayed Ramus and depicted events related to the reception of Ramism at the Academy of Cracow. The article is followed by an appendix which contains a critical edition of excerpts from the manuscript rough draft of Apologia which has been preserved until nowadays (Jagiellonian Library MS. 3205 I). In the apparatus I identify the references and show how Broscius rewrote and rearranged the original paragraphs of his anti-Ramist work.

    Full Text Available In the search for Justice, equity, whose roots date back to Antiquity, and the new rhetoric, proposed by Chaim Perelman in the work Ethics and Law, should be used as guiding instruments for the application of rules to specific cases. In order to assure a fair and balanced social coexistence in a society with an increasing and rapid evolution, whose legislation is not always able to follow this same evolution, it is necessary that the interpreters of the Law make use of ethical values. Justice is an aspiration of the human being who intends to find the Justice that is possible to be achieved, having the Law as a means to achieve this purpose, through the establishment of rules of conduct that assure peace and social harmony. However, Justice is an unfinished idea, since society is always in constant transformation and evolution, seeking to improve what it considers as fair and good.>Na busca da Justiça, deve-se utilizar da eqüidade, cujas raízes remontam à Antigüidade, e da lógica do razoável, proposta por Chaim Perelman na obra Ética e Direito, como instrumentos norteadores da aplicação das normas aos casos concretos. É preciso garantir um convívio social justo e equilibrado numa sociedade em crescente e acelerada evolução, porém as leis nem sempre conseguem acompanhar, então é necessário que os intérpretes do Direito se utilizem de valores éticos. A Justiça é uma aspiração do ser humano que procura encontrar aquela Justiça possível de ser concretizada, e o Direito é um vetor na consecução deste objetivo, mediante o estabelecimento de regras de conduta que garantam a paz e a harmonia social. Porém, a Justiça é uma idéia inacabada, uma vez que a sociedade está sempre em constante transformação e evolução, e busca aprimorar o que considera como justo e bom.

  20. A Study of Muslim Philosophers’ Views about Rhythm and Rhyme (with emphasis on the works of Aristotle, al-Farabi, Averroes, Ibn Sina, Baghdadi, Khajeh Nasir and Ghartajeni

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    S. Mahdi Zarghani

    2013-04-01

    Full Text Available  Abstract A part of Muslim philosophers’ studies is allocated to music. They categorize music as a sub-branch of mathematical sciences and investigate it scientifically, not artistically. Al-Musighi al-Kabir by al-Farabi and Javame’ Elm al-Musighi by Ibn Sina are among the most important works in this regard. Under the general category of music, they also allocate a section to the music of poem and investigate it scientifically. Their ideas about the music of poem are similar to as well as different from the ideas of prosodists. This article aims to study their ideas about the music of poem briefly. The first section is allocated to the issue of rhythm in verbal arts and it is shown that our philosophers consider two kinds of rhythm: quantifiable and not quantifiable. The first one exists in poem and the second one is in non-poetic language. Also they define certain characteristics for each of these rhythms. Quantity, the equality of cadences, provoking admiration and having distant returns are the features of poetic rhythm, whereas regular join and separation, similar endings, symmetry of sentences with regard to length, agreement and similarity of symmetrical words regarding movements, pauses and numbers of such words, appropriate usage of music-creating devices such as puns, alliterations and parallelisms are among the features of non-poetic rhythms. The significance of rhythm in poem and its status is another issue investigated in this article and it is shown that music and mimesis are two necessary elements that poem is made simply by the presence of them and the fundamental matter in the music of poem is “proportion”. Also it is shown that such matter is the basis of meters and prosodies. Our investigation shows that musical sounds and poetic meters are following the same system. Under other issues such as “Tanghim” it is shown that, by creating such terms, philosophers try to show that the factor of sound is important in the formation of rhythm and the proposition of issues such as the relationship between rhythm and emotional-semantic backgrounds of poem makes it clear if in their views there is a meaningful relationship between these two factors or not?   Rhyme is the second music-creating element in the poem. Philosophers have investigated this element less than rhythm. For example, Ibn Sina and al-Farabi explain the relation between rhyme and Arabic as well as other poems. The disagreements between philosophers and prosodists with regard to this element are also studied in this article. Â

Inicialmente, discutimos os fundamentos das categorias causalidade e contingência a partir da obra de dois filósofos, Aristóteles e Pascal. Em segundo lugar, recuperando algumas reflexões anteriores sobre as bases lógicas do conceito de risco, discutimos criticamente sua adequação e eficácia explicativa frente ao objeto saúde-doença. Em terceiro lugar, apresentamos brevemente categorias e conceitos fundantes do paradigma da complexidade, capazes de dar conta dos fenômenos da emergência, não-linearidade e borrosidade relacionados aos novos objetos complexos e mutantes da saúde. Concluímos com alguns comentários e reflexões ainda preliminares sobre fundamentos, perspectivas e conseqüências da aplicação da modalidade "contingência" como alternativa à noção de determinação no campo da saúde, a fim de visualizar o futuro do conceito de risco para além da área temática (científica e tecnológica da Epidemiologia contemporânea.We contend the thesis that, in the current phase of maturity of the epidemiological field, a reevaluation of the risk concept is timely needed.

    Objective: To evaluate the predictive value of BI-RADS{sup TM} categories 3, 4 and 5 in non-palpable breast masses assessed by mammography, ultrasound and magnetic resonance imaging. Materials And Methods: Twenty-nine patients with BI-RADS categories 3, 4 and 5 non-palpable breast masses identified by mammograms were submitted to complementary ultrasound and magnetic resonance imaging studies, besides excisional biopsy. In total, 30 biopsies were performed. The lesions as well as their respective BI-RADS classification into 3, 4 and 5 were correlated with the histopathological results. The predictive values calculation was made by means of specific mathematical equations. Results: Negative predictive values for category 3 were: mammography, 69.23%; ultrasound, 70.58%; and magnetic resonance imaging, 100%. Positive predictive values for category 4 were: mammography, 63.63%; ultrasound, 50%; and magnetic resonance imaging, 30.76%. For category 5, positive predictive values were: mammography and ultrasound, 100%; and magnetic resonance imaging, 92.85%. Conclusion: For category 3, the negative predictive value of magnetic resonance imaging was high, and for categories 4 and 5, the positive predictive values of the three modalities were moderate.

    2013-11-01

    Full Text Available In Aristotle's presentation Gorgias seems to be only a rhetor unable to express any philosophically interesting view. The reason for that is that, in Aristotle's opinion, a clear and precise way of speaking is a necessary feature of every philosopher, and Gorgias prefers a complex and obscure style of speech. From the point of view of the evolution of rhetoric, Aristotle believes that Gorgias makes a drawback, because he makes appeal to the emotions and passions and not to logos.

However, the interpretation proposed by Ockham and the Nominalists led to a linguistic revolution in the formulation of this concept. Vincent Ferrer, though continuing the Thomistic tradition, assumes the linguistic transformation brought about by Nominalism, and reformulates Aristotle's doctrine.

    Full Text Available One new subfamily, four new genera and 10 new species of Psychodidae are described from Burmese amber which significantly increases our knowledge about this group in the Cretaceous. Protopsychodinae n. subfam. probably represents the oldest known ancestor of modern Psychodinae and includes three species within two genera: Datzia setosa gen. et sp. n., Datzia bispina gen. et sp. n., and Mandalayia beumersorum gen. et sp. n. Sycoracinae and Phlebotominae are represented by two genera each in the studied material, Palaeoparasycorax globosus gen. et sp. n., Palaeoparasycorax suppus gen. et sp. n., Parasycorax simplex sp. n., and Phlebotomites aphoe sp. n. and Phlebotomus vetus sp. n., respectively. Bruchomyiinae is represented by Nemopalpus quadrispiculatus sp. n. Furthermore, one genus of an incertae sedis subfamily, Bamara groehni gen. et sp. n., is described. The systematic positions of the new taxa are discussed.

    2018-04-01

    ABSTRACT: This paper deals with the complex relationship between Catholic Church entities and secular law, which has always had great relevance and impact on the canonical discipline of such institutions. After some preliminary remarks about the juridical status of Church institutions in canon law across the centuries, from the ius vetus to the 1917 Codex and the current Code of Canon Law (1983, the paper compares their current regulation in secular law within the most important legal traditions in the West, emphasizing pros and cons of each legal system. In the second part, it focuses on the impact of some recent trends that emerge from the evolution of both secular and canonical legal systems and concern the regulation of Church institutions and of Church-related institutions. It then draws some conclusive remarks on the need to update their inner structure and administrative rules.

  15. La retórica aristotélica y la oratoria de su tiempo (sobre el ejemplo de Lisias III

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Francisco Cortés Gabaudan

    1998-12-01

    Full Text Available Aristotle's Rhetoric is a descriptive text to a greater extent than normally recognised and so our understanding of Aristotle can be improved with the analysis of speeches previous to him; as a case study, the third speech of Lysias has been chosen. The argumentation of judicial speeches previous to Aristotle was built with enthymemes whose first premises are based on emotions and characters explaining human behaviour; therefore the first purpose of Rhetoric 11.2-11 (about emotions and 11.2-17 (about characters was to supply the orators with first premises. In those speeches the emotions of the audience were stirred up by enthymemes; therefore Aristotle accepted that the orator could use emotions in this rational and logic way. Nevertheless he condemned the arousing of emotions by direct and irrational requests, a procedure found in the judicial speeches. This way the apparent contradictory treatment of emotions in Aristotle's Rhetoric can be solved.

  16. Aristotele Detective. Tra fascino della storia e fascino delle storie

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Alice Bencivenni

    2013-03-01

    Full Text Available Thanks to Aristotle Detective, set in fourth century Athens, Margaret Doody realizes her assumption about the Hellenistic beginnings of the Novel. Two heroes, the historical Aristotle and Stefanos, a fictional former pupil of the Lyceum, act as forerunners of the couple Sherlock Holmes/Watson in the year 332 B.C. The juridical framework of the plot fits ancient sources about Greek institutions. Clues to the resolution of the murder puzzle are chosen from archaeological evidence. Vases and inscriptions, deceiving story characters and modern readers, help Aristotle to come out of the maze.

  17. La argumentación retórica como base interpretativa de la inducción aristotélica

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Juan Andrés Mercado

    2013-11-01

    Full Text Available The passages in Aristotle's Rhetoric where induction (epagogé is discussed show it as a very useful kind of argumentation, somehow related to example (paradeígma. This latter is based on the perception of some kind of similarities among the things compared. The characteristics attributed by Aristotle to these forms of argument allow us to propose a framework in which the notion of epagogé can be unified, despite the fact that some parts of Aristotle's works may suggest to understand its different meanings in terms of opposition.

  18. Without Qualification: An Inquiry Into the Secundum Quid

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    2014-03-01

    Full Text Available In this paper I will consider several interpretations of the fallacy of secundum quid as it is given by Aristotle in the Sophistical Refutations and argue that they do not work, one reason for which is that they all imply that the fallacy depends on language and thus fail to explain why Aristotle lists this fallacy among the fallacies not depending on language (extra dictione, amounting often to a claim that Aristotle miscategorises this fallacy. I will argue for a reading that preserves Aristotle’s categorization by a quite different account of how qualifications function.

  5. The historical origins of the vegetative state: Received wisdom and the utility of the text.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Adams, Zoe M; Fins, Joseph J

    2017-01-01

    The persistent vegetative state (PVS) is one of the most iconic and misunderstood phrases in clinical neuroscience. Coined as a diagnostic category by Scottish neurosurgeon Bryan Jennett and American neurologist Fred Plum in 1972, the phrase "vegetative" first appeared in Aristotle's treatise On the Soul (circa mid-fourth century BCE). Aristotle influenced neuroscientists of the nineteenth and early-twentieth centuries, Xavier Bichat and Walter Timme, and informed their conceptions of the vegetative nervous system. Plum credits Bichat and Timme in his use of the phrase, thus putting the ancient and modern in dialogue. In addition to exploring Aristotle's definition of the "vegetative" in the original Greek, we put Aristotle in conversation with his contemporaries-Plato and the Hippocratics-to better apprehend theories of mind and consciousness in antiquity. Utilizing the discipline of reception studies in classics scholarship, we demonstrate the importance of etymology and historical origin when considering modern medical nosology.

    In ancient Greece, Aristotle claimed in his Rhetoric that the function of rhetoric was not to persuade, but to discover the means of persuasion in each case. It is remarkable how the empirical approach towards persuasion embedded in ‘ethos, pathos, logos’ of Aristotle seems to be revisited by the Yale study group in 1950s, with the aim of discovering the laws of persuasive communications in laboratory settings.

    Full Text Available Among the standards approved by the Fourth Lateran Council the XXI stands out as the most important in the sacramental discipline. As usual it takes the name from its opening words, Omnis utriusque sexus. Through it, not only did the Church sanction a universal law that established the obligation of the believer to confess all his sins to their priest annually, in order to receive at least at Easter, after the execution of the imposed penance, the sacrament of the Eucharist, but also introduced a broader regulation of the same sacrament which brought up a relevant subject such as the sigillum confessionis and the related penalties which were applicable if violated. For the first time this institution, which has its roots in the divine right, received a general and organic legislative discipline intended to become the subject for reflection on the part of the doctrine, especially in the wake of its reception in the Liber Extra by Gregory IX (X 5. 38. 12. Given a brief excursus on the emergence in the jus vetus of a first regulation in relation to the duty of the Seal of Confession, we will try to understand the impact of l of the Innocentian legislation on doctrinal reflection and the development of the following regulation on the subject between the Middle Ages and the modern age.

    Full Text Available In the following, we would like to present and describe a very interesting map, engraved in the XVIIth or at the end of the XVIth century by a famous Dutch cartographer, engraver, and publisher: Pieter van der Keere (Petrus Kaerius. Born in Ghent in 1571, Van der Keere (1571-1646 developed his business in Amsterdam at the end of the XVIth century. The map described in our article is entitled Vetus Descriptio Daciarum nec non Moesiarum. The document is important for the history of cartography because it enable us to identify and comment upon the level of knowledge of Van der Keere about a region not so familiar to him. In fact, the map reflects a medieval version of the map of Ptolemy. This period is connected to the rediscovery of Ptolemy. Besides data from the famous work of the geographer born in Alexandria, Van der Keere included some interesting notations and details which reflect the middle Ages conceptions or geographical features invented in this period.

  17. Possible astronomical references in two megalithic building of ancient Latium

    Science.gov (United States)

    Magli, G.

    In the wide area of the ancient Latium Vetus - roughly enclosed within the coast and the Apennines between Rome and Terracina, in Central Italy - there are several examples of town's walls and buildings constructed with the spectacular megalithic technique called polygonal, in which enormous blocks are cut in irregular shapes and perfectly fit together without mortar. In many cases, for instance in Alatri, Arpino, Circei, Norba and Segni, the megalithic size of the blocks and the ingenuity in construction reach the same magnificence and impression of power and pride which characterize the worldwide famous Mycenaean towns of Tiryns and Mycenae, constructed around the XIII century BC. In Italy however, all polygonal walls are currently attributed to the Romans, and dated to the first centuries of the Roman republic (V-III century BC), although for most of these constructions no reliable stratigraphy is available. In the present work, which is part of an ongoing project aiming at a complete study of these buildings, we investigate the possible astronomical references in the planning of two among the most imposing of them, namely the so called Acropolis of Alatri and Circei.

Accederemos desde el epicentro mismo del relato, el capítulo XVI, en el que se concentra todo el asunto de la novela1. Clarín destacó este capítulo como «uno de los principales para la acción interna del libro»2. Y su ubicación central, sirviendo de gozne entre la primera y la segunda parte de este fragmento de vida de los vetustenses, así parece indicarlo. Tal ubicación junto con la estructura de los distintos planos de la realidad, para nosotros ficcional, dentro del propio capítulo XVI evoca la imagen de un juego de muñecas rusas. Aunque, como veremos más adelante, la complejidad del universo vetus- tense, como estudio mimético3 que es de la realidad extraliteraria, no puede constreñirse en un solo esquema estructural estático. Al contrario, Clarín dota a esta realidad de un dinamismo vital con el que hace patente el estancamiento de Vetusta.

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Marcelo D. Boeri

    2013-11-01

    Full Text Available This essay aims at presenting a reading of Aristotle’s criticisms of Parmenides at Physics. The author suggests that some important issues that Aristotle takes into account when determining the basic principles of the science of nature arise from those criticisms. Boeri argues that, in spite of the strong disagreement declared by Aristotle at Physics I 2-3 with regard to the Eleatic positions in general and to Parmenides’ position in particular, Aristotle takes advantage of his discussion with Parmenides in a constructive manner in favor of his own theory of change and, in general terms, of the indispensable conditions for the constitution of a science of nature. According to the author, one of the central points of Aristotle’s disagreement with Parmenides (the theory of being is at once one of the most fertile issues from the standpoint of Aristotle’s use of such disagreement in order to establish the foundations of his physics.

  1. Historical antecedents to the philosophy of Paul Feyerabend.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Munévar, Gonzalo

    2016-06-01

    Paul Feyerabend has been considered a very radical philosopher of science for proposing that we may advance hypotheses contrary to well-confirmed experimental results, that observations make theoretical assumptions, that all methodological rules have exceptions, that ordinary citizens may challenge the judgment of experts, and that human happiness should be a key value for science. As radical as these theses may sound, they all have historical antecedents. In defending the Copernican view, Galileo exemplified the first two; Mill, Aristotle and Machiavelli all argued for pluralism; Aristotle gave commonsense reasons for why ordinary citizens may be able to judge the work of experts; and a combination of Plato's and Aristotle's views can offer strong support for the connection between science and happiness.

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Francisco León Florido

    2002-01-01

    Full Text Available In this article we present a conceptual controversy concerning the metaphysics of Aristotle. Pierre Aubenque defends an aporetical interpretation that refuses the presence of the doctrine of the nalogy in the Aristotelic texts. According to Aubenque, Aristotle is trying to unify the physics and the metaphysics, but fails in his attempt, causing le problème de l’être. The swiss professor André de Muralt organizes the Aristotelic metaphysics around the analogy of being, conceived as a methodological procedure. According to Muralt, Aristotle is the maker of the invention du discours metaphysique, a systematic structure that provides the themes, concepts and great lines of the western thought.

  3. Professional virtue and professional self-awareness: a case study in engineering ethics.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Stovall, Preston

    2011-03-01

    This paper articulates an Aristotelian theory of professional virtue and provides an application of that theory to the subject of engineering ethics. The leading idea is that Aristotle's analysis of the definitive function of human beings, and of the virtues humans require to fulfill that function, can serve as a model for an analysis of the definitive function or social role of a profession and thus of the virtues professionals must exhibit to fulfill that role. Special attention is given to a virtue of professional self-awareness, an analogue to Aristotle's phronesis or practical wisdom. In the course of laying out my account I argue that the virtuous professional is the successful professional, just as the virtuous life is the happy life for Aristotle. I close by suggesting that a virtue ethics approach toward professional ethics can enrich the pedagogy of professional ethics courses and help foster a sense of pride and responsibility in young professionals.

  4. Thomas Aquinas on the Soul: Old problems, New Solutions. Guiding Premises for a Thomistic Synthesis

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Yevgeniy Shilov

    2012-12-01

    Full Text Available This article examines two main approaches to the doctrine of the soul: that of Plato and that of Aristotle. Each of these approaches had its own development and its own interpretations. Plato and his school was more important during the Middle Ages. Through the neo-platonic philosophers it reached Saint Augustine and became a part of the western cultural and religious heritage until finally it was taken up by member of the Franciscan order - Roger Bacon and Bonaventure. But this paradigm could not solve a host of problems connected with the soul and many of them remained unresolved. The end of the twelfth century brought the growth of the universities and the teaching of Aristotle - a new paradigm - transmitted by the Arabic philosophers which was rediscovered by the West. Two commentators on Aristotle - Averroes and Avicenna -were the most important for the West, especially since Avicenna exerted a great influence on Albert the Great. But both Plato and Aristotle, when taken separately, proved to be quite useless in resolving certain problems. But Thomas Aquinas was able to splice the Gordian knot concealing a solution to the problem of the soul. By combining the psychology of Plato with the metaphysics of Aristotle, Thomas succeeded in creating a new concept of the human person. The author of this article has tried to explain the difficulties which faced Thomas and the way in which Thomas was able to resolve a problem which had troubled philosophy through the ages - the problem of reconciling Plato with Aristotle and finding a way to make their conflicting philosophies agree with each other

    Full Text Available Focusing on Joyce’s use of Aristotle’s De Anima, and on Aquinas’s response to Aristotle, this essay takes, as its starting point, the recourse to two areas of enquiry in recent work on modernism: animal studies and phenomenology. In this essay we examine the intersection within Ulysses of the concept of the soul in Aristotle and Aquinas, show how this relates to questions of animality, and open the way to asking what implication the theological reflection on the soul at the centre of Ulysses might have for a process of uncovering theological contents in the concept of “life” in modernist studies more generally.

  6. [Female erotic dreams and female seed in ancient Greek medicine].

    Science.gov (United States)

    Andò, Valeria

    2009-01-01

    This paper analyses passages of the Hippocratic Corpus, of Aristotle and Galen about oneirogmòs, spermatic emission during sleep, referring specifically to women. Into the Hippocratic texts there is only one gynaecological case among many cases about males: for them this nocturnal emission is symptom of dangerous illness and De genitura gives a causal explanation of such phaenomenon. Instead, in Aristotle and Galen erotic dream is evidence for or against emission of female seed and female contribution to generation. As the argument ofHistoria animalium book X shows clear theoretical differences from that of De generatione animalium, the topic of erotic dream also concerns issues of authenticity.

    Medical ethics should not be subsumed under the classical types of ethical reasoning (e.g. Aristotle, Kant) nor the modern ethical versions of utilitarianism, deontology or ethics of discourse.
