  1. James W. Evra (1984). Death. Theoretical Medicine and Bioethics 5 (2).score: 870.0

Following the chosen item as it goes through reinterpretation permits conclusions to be drawn about the nature and scope of the broader change in question. In what follows, this device is applied to the change which took place in logic in the mid-nineteenth century. The feature chosen as (...)

  14. James W. van Evra (1969). II. Understanding in the Social Sciences Revisited. Inquiry 12 (1-4):347-349.score: 87.0
