    The 'Purposiveness' of Life.Shidan Lotfi - 2010 - The Monist 93 (1):123 - 134.
  2. Wittgenstein's Rule-Following Considerations and Moral Particularism.Shidan Lotfi - 2009 - Theoria 75 (2):100-116.
    Moral particularists have seen Wittgenstein as a close ally. One of the main reasons for this is that particularists such as Jonathan Dancy and John McDowell have argued that Wittgenstein's so-called "rule-following considerations" (RFCs) provide support for their skepticism about the existence and/or role of rules and principles in ethics. In this paper, I show that while Wittgenstein's RFCs challenge the notion that competence with language, i.e., the ability to apply concepts properly, is like mechanically following a rule, he does (...)

    A Theory Of Flourishing.Shidan Lotfi - 2011 - Dissertation, Florida State University,
    The question "What is the good life?" is perhaps the most basic question in all of ethics. The four major paradigms of the good life that have been proposed by various philosophers are: (1) hedonism, (2) various forms of desire-satisfactionism, (3) objective value pluralism, and (4) the hybrid theory--i.e., a combination of (1) and (3). In my dissertation, I critique the leading accounts of flourishing (or wellbeing) and defend an objective value pluralistic theory of flourishing that is based on what (...)

    A Robust Iris Feature Extraction Approach Based on Monogenic and 2D Log-Gabor Filters.Lotfi Kamoun, Nouri Masmoudi, Nade Fadhel & Walid Aydi - 2015 - Journal of Intelligent Systems 24 (2):161-179.
    This article suggests an enhancement of the Masek circle model approach usually used to find a trade-off between modeling complexity, algorithm accuracy, and computational time, mainly for embedded systems where the real-time aspect is a high challenge. Moreover, most commercialized systems today frame iris regions by circles. This work led to several novelties: first, in the segmentation process, the corneal reflection removal method based on morphological reconstruction and pixel connectivity was implemented. Second, the picture size reduction was applied according to (...)

    Philosophy of Animal-Made Art | فلسفه هنرِ جانور-ساخت.Pouya Lotfi Yazdi - manuscript
    In this article, first of all, I (hereafter: the writer) have presented an interpretation of aesthetic universality and it is argued that each definition of art has to admit the aesthetic universality. Next, the writer has argued that there is a relation between creativity and aesthetic universality, and it is claimed that there is the same aesthetic universality by the creative processes, products, and persons, both scientifically and philosophically; and so, the relation represents that aesthetic universality is true. Moreover, the (...)

    What Is Wrong with Secession?Pouya Lotfi Yazdi - manuscript
    Briefly, in this article, the writer argued that the right to secede as a right to territory is multilateral. Next, heterogeneous nationalism will be suggested to avoidance of secession. Moreover, an argument that is Martyr Argument is presented against unilateral or consensual secession. Well, what is wrong with secession?

    Dynamics of a Class of HIV Infection Models with Cure of Infected Cells in Eclipse Stage.Mehdi Maziane, El Mehdi Lotfi, Khalid Hattaf & Noura Yousfi - 2015 - Acta Biotheoretica 63 (4):363-380.
    In this paper, we propose two HIV infection models with specific nonlinear incidence rate by including a class of infected cells in the eclipse phase. The first model is described by ordinary differential equations and generalizes a set of previously existing models and their results. The second model extends our ODE model by taking into account the diffusion of virus. Furthermore, the global stability of both models is investigated by constructing suitable Lyapunov functionals. Finally, we check our theoretical results with (...)

    A Parametric Method for Ranking Intuitionistic Fuzzy Numbers and Its Application to Solve Intuitionistic Fuzzy Network Data Envelopment Analysis Models.B. Shakouri, R. Abbasi Shureshjani, B. Daneshian & F. Hosseinzadeh Lotfi - 2020 - Complexity 2020:1-25.
    In this study, a new parametric method is proposed to rank intuitionistic fuzzy numbers in a general form. One of the advantages of the proposed method is that the decision maker’s idea is taken into account by selecting appropriate amounts of decision level and hesitation degree parameters. In some illustrative examples, the superiority of the proposed method over some other approaches is demonstrated. Furthermore, to show the ability of the method to solve intuitionistic fuzzy optimization problems, the proposed method is (...)

    Vagueness and Utility: The Semantics of Common Nouns. [REVIEW]Rohit Parikh - 1994 - Linguistics and Philosophy 17 (6):521 - 535.
    A utility-based approach to the understanding of vague predicates (VPs) is proposed. It is argued that assignment of truth values to propositions containing VPs entails unjustifiable assumptions of consensus; two models of VP semantics are criticized on this basis: (1) the super-truth theory of Kit Fine (1975), which requires an unlikely consensus on base points; (2) the fuzzy logic of Lotfi Zadeh (1975), on fuzzy truth values of sentences. Pragmatism is held to provide a key: successful behavior justifies a (...)

    On Fuzziness and Ordinary Reasoning.María G. Navarro - 2013 - Studies in Fuzziness and Soft Computing 216 (463):468.
    In 1685, in The Art of Discovery, Leibniz set down an extraordinary idea: "The only way to rectify our reasonings is to make them as tangible as those of the Mathematicians, so that we can find our error at a glance, and when there are disputes among persons, we can simply say: Let us calculate [calculemus], without further ado, to see who is right." Calculemus.
