“Theoric Transformations” And A New Classification Of Abductive Inferences, Michael Hoffmann 2009 Georgia Institute of Technology - Main Campus

“Theoric Transformations” And A New Classification Of Abductive Inferences, Michael Hoffmann

Michael H.G. Hoffmann

Based on a definition of “abductive insight” and a critical discussion of G. Schurz’s (2008) distinction of eleven “patterns of abduction” that he organizes in four groups, I suggest an even more comprehensive classification that distinguishes 15 forms in an alternative structure. These forms are organized, on the one hand, with regard to what is abductively inferred—singular facts; types; laws; theoretical models; or representation systems—and, on the other, with regard to the question whether the abductive procedure is selective or creative (including a distinction between “psychologically creative,” as in school learning, or “historically creative”). Moreover, I argue ...

Defeat In The Chun/Chyou, A. Brooks, E. Brooks 2009 University of Massachusetts - Amherst

Defeat In The Chun/Chyou, A. Brooks, E. Brooks

A. Taeko Brooks

We here consider how victory and defeat are treated in the Chun/Chyou. We find that the Lu court of Spring and Autumn times viewed military operations not in a chivalric or moralizing way, like characters in Dzwo Jwan (DJ) narratives of Spring and Autumn events, but in a cold-eyed military advantage way.

The Greatest Legal Movie Of All Time: Proclaiming The Real Winner, Grant Morris 2009 Univerisity of San Diego School of Law

The Greatest Legal Movie Of All Time: Proclaiming The Real Winner, Grant Morris

Grant H Morris

In August, 2008, the ABA Journal featured an article entitled: “The 25 Greatest Legal Movies.” A panel of experts, described in the article as “12 prominent lawyers who teach film or are connected to the business” selected “the best movies ever made about lawyers and the law.” This distinguished panel ranked its twenty-five top legal movies, choosing To Kill a Mockingbird as its number one legal movie. The panel also selected twenty-five films as “honorable mentions,” which were listed in alphabetical order. In my opinion, however, the real greatest legal movie of all time was not selected as the winner ...

"Pensada Lei, Pensada Malícia". A Propósito Das Avaliações "De Desempenho" Aos Docentes, Paulo Ferreira da Cunha 2009 Universidade do Porto

"Pensada Lei, Pensada Malícia". A Propósito Das Avaliações "De Desempenho" Aos Docentes, Paulo Ferreira Da Cunha

Paulo Ferreira da Cunha

Há um generalizado desconhecimento sobre o que faz e o que deve fazer um docente e investigador universitário. Criam-se assim perigosos mitos sobre como os docentes deveriam ser avaliados, sem atenção à especificidade do seu labor, e com a criação de profundas injustiças. Teme-se que tais sistemas, a serem postos em prática, desincentivem os professores, consumam infinito tempo burocratizado que deveria ser usado em ensino e investigação, inquinem o ambiente criando inimizades letais, e acabem em longos processos judiciais. No presente artigo procura-se dignosticar os mitos de critérios subjectivos e arbitrários de avaliação, propondo uma avaliação decerto imperfeita, mas objectiva ...

“Transnational Conversations In Migration, Queer, And Transgender Studies: Multimedia Storyspaces.”, Gema Pérez-Sánchez 2009 University of Miami

“Transnational Conversations In Migration, Queer, And Transgender Studies: Multimedia Storyspaces.”, Gema Pérez-Sánchez

Gema Pérez-Sánchez

En 2005 se aprobó en España la Ley 13/2005, de 1 de Julio, por la que se modifica el Código Civil en material de derecho a contraer matrimonio, dando pie al matrimonio legal entre personas del mismo sexo. Dos años más tarde se aprueba la Ley 3/2007, de 15 de marzo, reguladora de la rectificación registral de la mención relativa al sexo de las personas, la cual permite el cambio de sexo en el registro civil sin necesidad de someterse a una operación de reasignación de género. A pesar del indudable progresismo y de la gran importancia de ...
