A Business Trust For Partnerships? Early Conceptions Of Company-Related Assets In Legal Literature, And Antwerp Forensic And Commercial Practice (Later Sixteenth-Early Seventeenth Century), Dave De ruysscher 2015 SelectedWorks

A Business Trust For Partnerships? Early Conceptions Of Company-Related Assets In Legal Literature, And Antwerp Forensic And Commercial Practice (Later Sixteenth-Early Seventeenth Century), Dave De Ruysscher

Dave De ruysscher

The Antwerp example demonstrates that in the early modern period entity shielding for partnerships existed in some form by law, and that it was devised in doctrine and the practice of courts rather than in legislation. The affectation of assets for the business venture that did not entail limited liability nonetheless allowed for some separation of personal from partnership-related assets. This innovation, which was devised in doctrine in the early 1600s, was important in a mercantile context in which partnerships with open goals and with active partners or directors engaged in diverse business activities. Yet, according to an older rule ...


From Aristotle’S Teleology To Darwin’S Genealogy: The Stamp Of Inutility, Basingstoke: Palgrave Macmillan, Forthcoming: February 2015, 208 Pp., Isbn: 9781137445766, Marco Solinas 2015 SelectedWorks

From Aristotle’S Teleology To Darwin’S Genealogy: The Stamp Of Inutility, Basingstoke: Palgrave Macmillan, Forthcoming: February 2015, 208 Pp., Isbn: 9781137445766, Marco Solinas

Marco Solinas

Starting with Aristotle and moving on to Darwin, Marco Solinas outlines the basic steps from the birth, establishment and later rebirth of the traditional view of living beings, and its overturning by evolutionary revolution. The classic framework devised by Aristotle was still dominant in the 17th Century world of Galileo, Harvey and Ray, and remained hegemonic until the time of Lamarck and Cuvier in the 19th Century. Darwin's breakthrough thus takes on the dimensions of an abandonment of the traditional finalistic theory. It was a transition exemplified in the morphological analysis of useless parts, such as the sightless eyes ...


Dancing The Fairy Tale, Laura E. Katz Rizzo 2015 SelectedWorks

Dancing The Fairy Tale, Laura E. Katz Rizzo

Laura E Katz Rizzo

“Dancing the Fairy Tale offers a new historical perspective on the development of the art of ballet, and how women have played pivotal roles as performing artists, directors, and producers. Laura Katz Rizzo uses The Sleeping Beauty as her vehicle and she debunks the prevailing historical narrative that ballet’s evolution has been linear and dominated by male choreographers and directors. She successfully argues that the ballerina is an integral part of the creative process. Well written, and extensively researched, Dancing the Fairy Tale will be a welcome addition to any balletomane’s library, and an excellent text for courses ...

Cutting Out Worry: Popularizing Psychosurgery In America, Antonietta Louise Iannaccone 2014 SelectedWorks

Cutting Out Worry: Popularizing Psychosurgery In America, Antonietta Louise Iannaccone

Antonietta Louise Iannaccone

Contemporary Americans think of the lobotomy as an utterly primitive and brutal form of psychosurgery. The film One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, especially, popularized the image of it as a violent form of suppression and mind control. But when it was first introduced, the procedure was considered compassionate, effective, and so delicate it was compared to “cutting through butter.” The therapeutic effect was described as “cutting out worry.” Between 1936 and 1978 it is estimated that 40,000 psychiatric patients received lobotomies in the United States; the procedure was not only tolerated, it was popular. How did it ...
