    An Immobile Nomad: “The Peasant From the Danube”.Pompiliu Crăciunescu - 2018 - Human and Social Studies 7 (3):69-79.
    European writer of Romanian origin, Vintila Horia - Goncourt Prize in 1960 for the novel Dieu est né enexil - was a truly awakened consciousness of his time. Wherever he was - in Bucharest or Florence, Buenos Aires or Paris, Rome or Madrid - this “polyglot nomad” never left the unyielding values of the spirit and of knowledge. His work of literary epistemology, hisnovelistic creation - fed by exile, love and by the divine -, as well as the Journal d’un (...)

    Mother Nature in Silko’s Yellow Woman : An Ecofeminist Dimension.Olfa Gandouz - 2018 - Human and Social Studies 7 (3):88-97.
    Ecofeminism is a term coined by Françoise D’Eubonne in her book Feminism or Death to show the affinities between ecology and feminism. Both women and nature are perceived as passive elements and like women who complain about patriarchal constraints, ecologists shed light on the impacts of human exploitation over nature which is affected by pollution. Some dimensions of ecofeminism are present in Leslie Marmon Silko’s The Yellow Woman. The postmodern novel contains a female character who forges a link with the (...)

  4. Popular Culture and the Dilemma of Corruption in Nigeria.Adekunle A. Ibrahim & Samuel Otu Ishaya - 2018 - Human and Social Studies 7 (3):47-65.
    This paper examines the nexus between popular culture and the problem of corruption in Nigeria within the theoretical framework of the Socratic dictum that “the unexamined life is not worth living”. The paper argues that corruption is a social behavior that is propelled by popular culture and sustained by skewed application of logical thinking in critical decision making. Hence, the paper posits that formal education remains the bedrock upon which corruption can be curtailed and also equips people with logical tools (...)

    Sade and Infanticide in China: Around La Philosophie Dans le Boudoir and Justine.Shasha Ma - 2018 - Human and Social Studies 7 (3):98-110.
    The present study will introduce us into a new world of Chinese imagology in the 18th century in France. Different from the negative side of the “sinophobes” such as Montesquieu and François Melon, Sade built a universe of a perfect China in which all crimes were justified. Nevertheless, as a libertine, his point of view was also different from the famous “sinophiles”, La Mothe Le Vayer, Pierre Bayle, Leibniz or Voltaire, for example. China as imagined by Sade was full of (...)

    Faults of the International Trade System: The Notion of Multilateralism in the Retreat.Daniel Nagel & Sorin Burnete - 2018 - Human and Social Studies 7 (3):23-46.
    The indisputable success of the European integration project also prompted other regions of the world to follow suit. On the other side of coin, these regional blocs cultivated free trade within but remained protectionist vis-àvis the outside, thereby impeding the progress of the multilateral trade system. But also the soaring number of WTO member states accompanied by their incompatible interests, its ambitious agenda spanning over 20 diverse issues and, in particular, the single undertaking approach emerged as the Doha’s Round “stumbling (...)

    From the Art de Dictier to the Poetic Art: The Lyrical Voice.Jacques-Kees Noble-Kooijman - 2018 - Human and Social Studies 7 (3):150-164.
    Eustache Deschamps writes in 1392 his Art de Dictier, an art of writing and, according to its added title, an art of “making songs, balads, virelais and rondeaux.” He introduces it, therefore, as a versification treatise that is exemplary for his generation of nonmusician poets, unlike Machaut, his most probable initiator into metrics. In so doing he introduces the concept of natural music, a genre proper to inspire poets for whom lyrical musicality is entirely produced by poetic language alone. Without (...)

    Journeys of Political Self-Discovery: The Writings of Miyamoto Yuriko and Panait Istrati From Late 1920s Soviet Russia.George T. Sipos - 2018 - Human and Social Studies 7 (3):113-149.
    This study reopens the question of the nature of political commitment and its causes during a time that drastically altered the history of the 20th century, the 1920s and 1930s. Focused largely on a body of texts produced by Japanese female writer Miyamoto Yuriko who returned from a three-year long trip to the Soviet Union in late 1920s as a convinced communist, the study offers a comparison with communism renunciation writings produced by leftist Romanian French writer Panait Istrati, as well (...)

  10. Values, Leaders and Social Representations.Mihai Şleahtiţchi - 2018 - Human and Social Studies 7 (3):13-22.
    When referring to values as “general principles of desirability” or as “social cohesion binders”, one should bear in mind that such notions contribute decisively to the shaping and crystallization of social representations. It would be improper to believe that there may be in-depth studies upon people, ideas and events, as this approach disregards the fact that social representations have the capacity of being strongly anchored in the dynamics of relational processes, to the symbolic relationships specific to a given social field, (...)

    Emergence, a Universal Phenomenon Which Connects Reality to Consciousness, Natural Sciences to Humanities.Gabriel Crumpei & Alina Gavriluţ - 2018 - Human and Social Studies 7 (2):89-106.
    Progress in neuroscience has left a central question of psychism unanswered: what is consciousness? Modeling the psyche from a computational perspective has helped to develop cognitive neurosciences, but it has also shown their limits, of which the definition, description and functioning of consciousness remain essential. From Rene Descartes, who tackled the issue of psychism as the brain-mind dualism, to Chambers, who defined qualia as the tough, difficult problem of research in neuroscience, many hypotheses and theories have been issued to encompass (...)

    Free Trade in Theory and Policy: Contemporary Challenges.Daniel Nagel & Sorin Burnete - 2018 - Human and Social Studies 7 (2):13-35.
    Free trade denotes a state of international commercial relations premised on governments’ restraint from using policy instruments meant to favor indigenous industries against foreign competitors. According to the conventional trade theory advocated by classical and neo-classical thinkers, free trade makes little economic sense failing nations’ tendency to specialize based on comparative advantage, a concept with high persuasive influence despite the elapsing of time. Even though the comparative advantage rule has seldom been questioned per se, the free trade concept has been (...)

  16. Political and Military Developments in the Byzantine Empire During the 11th Century.Muhamet Qerimi & Muhamet Mala - 2018 - Human and Social Studies 7 (2):36-50.
    For the Byzantine Empire, at the end of the first quarter of the 11thcentury, a new period starts, which in the historiography opinion is generalized as the period of the rule of bureaucratic aristocracy of the capital city. This covers the period 1025-1081, which was characterized by disintegration in the state system and failures in the field of internal and foreign politics. The political crisis at its beginning did not appear clearly, because bureaucratic aristocracy came to power following the thriving (...)

    Social and Cultural Barriers in Translation.Houssaïne Rifai - 2018 - Human and Social Studies 7 (2):78-85.
    Using current terms, translation turns out to be one of the oldest manifestations of globalization in the world. It has also played a leading role in the civilizational development of Arab countries by filling gaps in law, philosophy and medicine. It would then be interesting to demonstrate how the interaction of Morocco and France, before and during the French Protectorate, contributed to the construction of a literature and the transmission of knowledge through translation. To do this, it would be wise (...)

    Rural Diversification Strategies in Promoting Structural Transformation in Zimbabwe.Mathew Svodziwa - 2018 - Human and Social Studies 7 (2):123-138.

A good understanding of the diversity of rural livelihoods choices and income sources among rural households would therefore inform policy makers on appropriate policy interventions. This paper delves to establish the role of rural diversification strategies in promoting structural transformation in Zimbabwe using Insiza district as a case study. A mixed methods research design was used. (...)

    During the night of August 2nd to 3rd 1939, the American anthropologist Buell Quain, then working among the Krahô Indians, lacerated his body, opened his veins and ended up hanging himself from a tree by using a rope from his hammock. In several letters dated 2nd August 1939 which he had written and left for his usual correspondents, he mentions a contagious disease to explain his final act. But this reason would be contradicted by many of his last comrades and (...)
