- Phil Benson, Autonomy in Language Learning, Learning, and Life.This paper addresses three practical questions about autonomy in foreign language learning from a philosophical perspective: (1) Do language teachers have a responsibility to foster personal autonomy as well as teach language knowledge and skills? (2) Does autonomy mean that learners should be unconditionally free to control their learning? (3) Does autonomy necessarily involve control over the content of learning? Arguing that personal autonomy entails learner autonomy and that learner autonomy, in turn, entails language learner autonomy, I offer a qualified (...)No categories
- David Rooney, Why We Need Wisdom in Knowledge Intensive Organisations : When Theory Goes Bad.This paper considers why wisdom is important in knowledge-intensive service sector organisations. The paper argues that although wisdom necessarily has links to knowledge, knowledge does not necessarily have links to wisdom. The paper also argues that a distinguishing feature of knowledge economies is the extent to which abstract forms of knowledge, particularly theory, are used for commercial purposes in the service sector. The commercial application of abstract knowledge presents particular challenges for managerial and organisational wisdom. An analysis of Enron’s failure (...)

- Paul Griffiths & Karola Stotz, Genetics and Philosophy : An Introduction.In the past century, nearly all of the biological sciences have been directly affected by discoveries and developments in genetics, a fast-evolving subject with important theoretical dimensions. In this rich and accessible book, Paul Griffiths and Karola Stotz show how the concept of the gene has evolved and diversified across the many fields that make up modern biology. By examining the molecular biology of the 'environment', they situate genetics in the developmental biology of whole organisms, and reveal how the molecular (...)No categories

- Loretta O'Donnell, Robin Kramar & Maria Dyball, Complementing a Positivist Approach to Investment Analysis with Critical Realism : Challenges and a Way Forward.Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to identify the challenges in adding a critical realist epistemological perspective to a positivist approach in research on listed companies by equity researchers and other financial services professionals.

Findings – It was found that there is an absence of a critical realist epistemological approach to investment analysis, confirming the dominance of (...)No categories
- Stephen Chavura, The Separation of Religion and State : Context and Meaning.This paper seeks to show the analytical limitations of the most popular terms describing the relationship between religion and politics, the two most popular being "separation of church and state" and "separation of religion and politics". Although the latter term is preferred it is still quite vague in its meaning and, strictly speaking, impossible to put into practice. I try to clarify the meaning of "separation of religion and state" by discussing the early writings out of which the tradition arose, (...)No categories

- Brian Henderson-Sellers, Cesar Gonzalez-Perez & Greg Walkerden, An Application of Philosophy in Software Modelling and Future Information Systems Development.The influence of mainstream philosophy on conceptual modelling and on modelling language development has historically been arcane or, at best, not recognized, whilst modellers might in fact implicitly espouse one particular philosophical tenet. This paper describes and discusses philosophical stances applied to conceptual modeling in order to make such influences explicit so that we, as conceptual modellers, can take the next step.No categories
