Incidental Causation, Spontaneous Generation, And Homonymous Predication In Aristotle’S Physics Ii And Other Texts, David Depew 2009 University of Iowa

Incidental Causation, Spontaneous Generation, And Homonymous Predication In Aristotle’S Physics Ii And Other Texts, David Depew

David J Depew

How did Aristotle, the founder of scientific biology, define life? In this volume, which collects the contributions to a conference held in 2006, philologists, philosophers and biologists approach this question. They study how Aristotle's concept of the soul relates to his perception of life; how he evaluates the different criteria that, according to him, constitute life; how he uses those criteria to define different organic structures; whether there exists a unified definition of life in Aristotle's philosophy; aspects of procreation and ontogenesis; the relationship between individuals and species; the reception of Aristotle's theories. German text.

Biblioblogging Our Matrix: Exploring The Potential And Perplexities Of Academic Blogging, James McGrath 2009 Butler University

Biblioblogging Our Matrix: Exploring The Potential And Perplexities Of Academic Blogging, James Mcgrath

James F. McGrath

The phenomenon of "biblioblogging" has not only brought Biblical studies into close contact with popular new media and modes of communication, but also regularly brings the public and private, the peer-reviewed and the popular, into close proximity with one another. This article explores some of the reasons why an increasing number of academics in Biblical studies blog, as well as some of the ways in which blogging can serve the needs of the academy


From Hōshi To Borantia: Transformations Of Volunteering In Japan And Implications For Foreign Policy, Nichole Georgeou 2009 Wollongong University

From Hōshi To Borantia: Transformations Of Volunteering In Japan And Implications For Foreign Policy, Nichole Georgeou

Nichole Georgeou

This study explores the relationship between state-citizen relations and changing notions of volunteering in Japan. I map Japan's state-citizen relations through an analysis of the transformations of volunteering in Japan from “hōshi” (mutual obligation) to "borantia" (borrowed from the English "volunteer"). The article broadly considers these paradigm shifts in terms of the context of the role International Non Profit Organisations (INPOs) play in Japanese foreign policy.

The Sporting Image What If? An Anthology Of Creative Writing Based Upon Real Events In Sport, Clive Palmer 2009 University of Central Lancashire

The Sporting Image What If? An Anthology Of Creative Writing Based Upon Real Events In Sport, Clive Palmer

Clive Palmer

The focus of this book is to take a sideways look at iconic features in sport; characters, events, artefacts and general goings-on. By considering the notion of ‘What If?’ reality has been re-interpreted and presented differently through a medium of creative writing. Each chapter has some underpinning research which is intended to illustrate where the creative story departs from reality. The research aspect is also to give a sense of plausibility for a range of different outcomes which are ostensibly possible for some famous people in sport. Through the conflict created for these characters we find many ‘good apples’ in ...


Darwinian Controversies: An Historiographical Recounting, David Depew 2009 University of Iowa

Darwinian Controversies: An Historiographical Recounting, David Depew

David J Depew

This essay reviews key controversies in the history of the Darwinian research tradition: the Wilberforce-Huxley debate in 1860, early twentieth-century debates about the heritability of acquired characteristics and the consistency of Mendelian genetics with natural selection; the 1925 Scopes trial about teaching evolution; tensions about race, culture, and eugenics at the 1959 centenary celebration Darwin’s Origin of Species; adaptationism and its critics in the Sociobiology debate of 1970s and, more recently, Evolutionary Psychology; and current disputes about Intelligent Design. These controversies, I argue, are etched into public memory because they occur at the emotionally charged boundaries between public-political, technical-scientific ...


Studying And Teaching "Law As Rhetoric": A Place To Stand, Linda Berger 2009 University of Nevada, Las Vegas

Studying And Teaching "Law As Rhetoric": A Place To Stand, Linda Berger

Linda L. Berger

This article proposes that law students may find a better fit within the legal culture of argument if they are introduced to rhetorical alternatives to counter narrowly formalist and realist perspectives on how the law works and how judges decide cases. The article makes a two-part argument: first, introducing law students to rhetorical alternatives allows them to envision their role as lawyers as constructive, effective, and imaginative while grounded in law, language, and reason. Second, offering rhetorical alternatives allows law professors to enrich their own study and teaching and to develop a more nuanced understanding of the law school classroom ...

From Travelogues To Political Intervention In Juliet Barrett Rublee's Flame Of Mexico, Isabel Arredondo 2009 SUNY Plattsburgh

From Travelogues To Political Intervention In Juliet Barrett Rublee's Flame Of Mexico, Isabel Arredondo

Isabel Arredondo

Although she is absent from most film histories, feminist activist Juliet Barrett Rublee produced what is probably the first US feature film made entirely in Mexico, Flame of Mexico (1932). This article argues that Flame is a crossover film; it shares with film travelogues the desire to bring US audiences the world beyond our reach, but it crosses over by creating a dramatic narrative that addresses US-Mexico policy, specifically the effects of the oil laws of President Calles (1925). Unlike typical 1920s US films, Rublee makes the US character, the oil investor Thorton, the villain.


Managing Organizational Change: Leadership, Tesco, And Leahy's Resignatio, UZOECHI NWAGBARA 2009 GREENWICH SCHOOL OF MANAGEMENT LONDON

Managing Organizational Change: Leadership, Tesco, And Leahy's Resignatio, Uzoechi Nwagbara

Dr Uzoechi Nwagbara

The central issues here are the consequences and the impacts of the announcement of the resignation of Sir Terry Leahy, the CEO of Tesco, from the organisation in March 2011. The announcement on the 8 th of June 2010 that Leahy, Tesco’s chief executive officer and one of Britain’s most respected businessmen, would be retiring after transforming the organisation into the world’s third biggest retailer, has generated a groundswell of reactions. The impact of this change, as well as how to manage the change resulting from his resignation is part of the concern of this report. Another ...
