Crítica Da Razão Jurídica, Paulo Ferreira da Cunha 2010 Universidade do Porto

Crítica Da Razão Jurídica, Paulo Ferreira Da Cunha

Paulo Ferreira da Cunha

A razão jurídica racionalista fez-se abstraccionismo e dogmatismo e tornou-se legalismo. O Direito ficou, em muitos casos, empedernido e injusto. Abrir o Direito aos sentidos e aos sentimentos, na senda, por exemplo, de um Luis Alberto Warat, sendo fascinante e iconoclasta, não é tarefa fácil, se for empresa prudente. Precisamente porque os juristas, mesmo muitos dos mais radicias, se habituaram a certos limites, e mesmo na semiótica dos seus lugares, dos seus modos e vestes reconheceríamos sombras avessas às paixões. As quais podem ser, porém, um vício oposto ao racionalismo. O desafio é reinventar a razão jurídica sem o normativismo ...


Universidade: Um Manifesto Pelo Sonho, Paulo Ferreira da Cunha 2010 Universidade do Porto

Universidade: Um Manifesto Pelo Sonho, Paulo Ferreira Da Cunha

Paulo Ferreira da Cunha

Por muito vilipendiado que seja, e é-o praticamente todos os dias por sociedades que recusam ser educadas e se comprazem na sua má-educação e incultura, além de por políticos impreparados, e mesmo por colegas não solidários, o Professor que o é por vocação está como Lutero: aqui está, aqui fica, não pode fazer de outra maneira. Só este professor por vocação e por sonho ainda faz a Escola valer. Até quando continuará a haver professores destes? E até onde irá a sua inadaptação com as condições em que tem de sobreviver, fazendo um papel que lhe não é reconhecido, tantas ...


Concretizar A Constituição, Paulo Ferreira da Cunha 2010 Universidade do Porto

Concretizar A Constituição, Paulo Ferreira Da Cunha

Paulo Ferreira da Cunha

O presente artigo pondera observações sobre a Constituição Portuguesa: é ela realmente normativa, ou inefectiva? Impõe-se uma análise das críticas ao statu quo constitucional: dirigem-se elas à Constituição em si ou apenas ao seu deficiente cumprimento? Finalmente, em que medida é que a Constituição, parecendo a alguns impecilho para a resolução da crise, contudo pode ser adjuvante para a sua superação.

Economies Of Nature In Shaskespeare, Jean E. Feerick 2010 John Carroll University

Economies Of Nature In Shaskespeare, Jean E. Feerick

Jean Feerick

The article explores the themes of nature and ecology in the plays of English author William Shakespeare. The author reflects on the dynamic between the human and nonhuman from the perspective of premodern society. Topics discussed include the homologous relationship between natural and human forms in Shakespeare's time, scenes of incorporation and re-assimilation in the play "Titus Andronicus," and cyclical exchanges between human and earth. The author also evaluates theories on nature by author Bruno Latour in books such as "We Have Never Been Modern."

Avant-Propos: Les Brevets Dans 'L'Économie De La Connaissance', Serge Gutwirth, Isabelle Stengers

Serge Gutwirth

La dynamique scientifico-industrielle associée à la biotechnologie est devenu un nouveau modèle pour la recherche en général. La responsabilité des Etats, assurer le développement d’une recherche publique, non directement asservie aux intérêts privés, a été transformée en responsabilité d’avoir à étendre cette dynamique au maximum de secteurs de recherche. C’est ce qu’on appelle « l’économie de la connaissance », c’est-à-dire le pilotage de la recherche par l’ « aval », le partenariat avec une industrie étant devenu la règle, et la prise de brevet un synonyme de réussite enviable. Comme dans le cas de la « déterritorialisation » des brevets ...

When ‘Digital Borders’ Meet ‘Surveilled Geographical Borders’. Why The Future Of Eu Border Management Is A Problem, Gloria Gonzalez-Fuster, Serge Gutwirth 2010 Law, Science, Technology & Society @ Vrije Universiteit Brussel

When ‘Digital Borders’ Meet ‘Surveilled Geographical Borders’. Why The Future Of Eu Border Management Is A Problem, Gloria Gonzalez-Fuster, Serge Gutwirth

Serge Gutwirth

The European Union (EU) has been powerfully supporting over the last decades the construction of so-called ‘digital borders’, composed of large-scale databases massively processing information on third-country nationals on the move, focusing on the examination of who crosses, wishes or needs to cross its external borders. Simultaneously, the EU has been placing under increased surveillance its ‘physical’ external borders, axing such surveillance on the scrutiny of whatever happens at such geographical space. Recent policy and technological developments appear to announce an interconnection of both modalities of ‘borders’, dangerously occurring at the edge of the EU legal framework for the insurance ...

You Make All Things New, Scott R. Paeth 2010 DePaul University

You Make All Things New, Scott R. Paeth

Scott R. Paeth

This article examines the way in which the theology of Jonathan Edwards can contrib- ute to the construction of a Christian approach to ecological ethics that maintains crucial elements of the Christian theological tradition. By way of comparison, the article begins with an examination of the work of Rosemary Radford Ruether, whose approach to dealing with the ecological implications of the Christian tradition diverges sharply from the perspective offered by Edwards, and provides a useful contrast to his approach. The article then turns to an extensive discussion of Edwards’ view of nature and the theology of creation, particularly the relationship ...

Journey Of Elam: Her Pedagogy As A Public Intellectual, Zorka Karanxha, Vonzell Agosto, Donna Elam 2010 University of South Florida

Journey Of Elam: Her Pedagogy As A Public Intellectual, Zorka Karanxha, Vonzell Agosto, Donna Elam

Zorka Karanxha

We explore pedagogical moments reflecting the social justice inspired servant-leadership of Dr. Elam in her journey as a public intellectual. Using auto/biographical methods we examine critical moments in her work across contexts: conducting diversity workshops, providing professional development for principals and teachers, and leading district and regional interventions in response to court orders to racially desegregate. We focus her leadership through the lens of critical pedagogy. In the journey of Elam we find an expression of critical social justice leadership that is inspired and empowered by the values of public service, spirituality, and humanitarianism. This auto/biography contributes to ...


Neither Morality Nor Law: Ritual Propriety As Confucian Civility, Stephen C. Angle 2010 Wesleyan University

Neither Morality Nor Law: Ritual Propriety As Confucian Civility, Stephen C. Angle

Stephen C. Angle

It is common for recent authors on the topic of “civility” to spend some time sketching
the history of their subject.1 One narrative goes like this: civility emerges in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries and is part of a larger trend toward disciplining bodily appetites that enables a new kind of cooperation among individuals. Civility interweaves politeness and political respect; it undergirds modern notions of republicanism, civil society, and the public good. In more recent decades—some writers point to World War I as a turning point, but for others, it is the 1960s—civility has declined or at ...
