    Olivier Massin (forthcoming). The Composition of Forces. British Journal for the Philosophy of Science:axv048.
    This paper defends a realist account of the composition of Newtonian forces, dubbed ‘residualism’. According to residualism, the resultant force acting on a body is identical to the component forces acting on it that do not prevent each other from bringing about its acceleration. Several reasons to favor residualism over alternative accounts of the composition of forces are advanced. (i) Residualism reconciles realism about component forces with realism about resultant forces while avoiding any threat of causal overdetermination. (ii) Residualism provides (...)

    Giuseppe Iurato (2015). A Simple Phylogenetic Remark About Certain Human Blood Pressure Values. Journal of Biochemistry International 2 (4):162-165.
    In this brief note, we wish to put forward an evolutionary biopsychology hypothesis on some features of the physiological phenomenon of human blood pressure. A possible conclusion springing out from this note, is the identification of a phylogenetic recurrence along the epi-ontogenetic evolution of human being.

    In this book chapter, we study the preventive rule, raised in Ley 1333 de 2009, and the way that environmental law has been building its own rules; escaping from the administrative law and creating their own dogmatic, necessary to achieve its independence as a legal autonomous area. We also see that is possible to see how the preventive rule was designed out of the general theory of administrative act, because it has characteristics that make it unique in the Colombian legal (...)

    The problem of environmental damage has attracted great interest by practitioners and academics from various disciplines. However the motives behind this discipline, they have not received sufficient attention from the Colombian legal literature; mainly from the perspective of responsibility. This book chapter presents some preliminary reflections of liability for environmental damage, to introduce the study of various topics. The aim of the book, is a doctrinal framed construction on duty to prevent progressive environmental deterioration caused by the human species, to (...)

    Iván Vargas-Chaves (2014). Los conocimientos tradicionales y sus escenarios de articulación con el comercio y el ambiente. In Alejandra Sáenz, Andrés Gómez & Gloria Amparo Rodríguez (eds.), Conflictos entre Propiedad, Comercio y Ambiente. Universidad Del Rosario 315-335.
    Traditional Knowledge as the axis of public policies, are aimed at comprehensive protection of ancestral practices of indigenous peoples. This knowledge has been linked to intense debates, usually unsolvable in the current intellectual property system. The reason is that traditional knowledge have not been addressed according to the needs of indigenous peoples. In fact, until today the only concrete measure in public policy is the Swakopmund Protocol, a successful case study. This is the so-called "milestone" of a triangulation between intellectual (...)

    Robert Ranisch, Sebastian Schuol & Marcus Rockoff (2015). Selbstgestaltung des Menschen durch Biotechniken. Francke Verlag.
    Entwicklungen der Lebenswissenschaften versprechen nicht mehr nur Heilerfolge, sondern auch die Optimierung des Menschen. Stichworte wie „Hirndoping“ und „Designer-Babys“ verweisen dabei auf Potenziale und Gefahren einer solchen Selbstgestaltung durch Biotechniken. Diese neuen Handlungsoptionen fordern unser Normensystem heraus und bedürfen einer bioethischen Reflexion. Der Band zeigt aus interdisziplinärer Perspektive Wege auf, die Herausforderungen insbesondere der Genetik und Neurowissenschaften anzunehmen. Dabei werden sowohl ethische Grundlagen als auch die gesellschaftliche Auseinandersetzung mit der Selbstgestaltung des Menschen in den Blick genommen.

    Marcoen J. T. F. Cabbolet, Relativity of Spatiotemporal Characteristics of Inertial Motion in the Universe of the Elementary Process Theory.
    The main issues with the Elementary Process Theory (EPT), a scheme of seven well-formed formulas with a speculative physical interpretation as elementary principles that govern the supersmall scale, are (i) that it has been developed from an unproven hypothesis (matter-antimatter repulsive gravity), and (ii) that there is no proof that it corresponds to existing theories. While the unproven hypothesis is currently being tested by several experimental projects, the purpose of this paper is to show that the EPT corresponds to Special (...)
