    A Perpetual Source of DNA or Something Really Different: Ethical Issues in the Creation of Cell Lines for African Genomics Research.Jantina de Vries, Akin Abayomi, James Brandful, Katherine Littler, Ebony Madden, Patricia Marshall, Odile Ouwe Oukem-Boyer & Janet Seeley - 2014 - BMC Medical Ethics 15 (1):60.
    The rise of genomic studies in Africa – not least due to projects funded under H3Africa – is associated with the development of a small number of biorepositories across Africa. For the ultimate success of these biorepositories, the creation of cell lines including those from selected H3Africa samples would be beneficial. In this paper, we map ethical challenges in the creation of cell lines.

    A Perpetual Source of DNA or Something Really Different: Ethical Issues in the Creation of Cell Lines for African Genomics Research.Janet Seeley, Odile Ouwe Missi Oukem-Boyer, Patricia Marshall, Ebony Madden, Katherine Littler, James Brandful, Akin Abayomi & Jantina de Vries - 2014 - BMC Medical Ethics 15 (1).
    BackgroundThe rise of genomic studies in Africa – not least due to projects funded under H3Africa – is associated with the development of a small number of biorepositories across Africa. For the ultimate success of these biorepositories, the creation of cell lines including those from selected H3Africa samples would be beneficial. In this paper, we map ethical challenges in the creation of cell lines.DiscussionThe first challenge we identified relates to the moral status of cells living in culture. There is no (...)

  6. Of Sensory Systems and the "Aboutness" of Mental States.Kathleen Akins - 1996 - Journal of Philosophy 93 (7):337--372.
    La autora presenta una critica a la concepcion clasica de los sentidos asumida por la mayoria de autores naturalistas que pretenden explicar el contenido mental. Esta crítica se basa en datos neurobiologicos sobre los sentidos que apuntan a que estos no parecen describir caracteristicas objetivas del mundo, sino que actuan de forma ʼnarcisita', es decir, representan informacion en funcion de los intereses concretos del organismo.El articulo se encuentra también en: Bechtel, et al., Philosophy and the Neuroscience.

    Collateral Effects of Strike Actions by Academic Staff on Undergraduates in Public Universities in South West Nigeria.Bolupe Abayomi Awe, Rose Nkem Tilije, Babatunde Nurudeen Balogun & Olusola Ilesanmi Olajide - 2022 - Religación. Revista de Ciencias Sociales y Humanidades 7 (33):e210933.
    The collateral effects of strike actions by academic staff in public universities in South West Nigeria were investigated through descriptive research design. An instrument tagged Perception of Undergraduates on the Influence of the Academic Staff Union of Universities Strike Actions Questionnaire was used for data collection. A study sample of 490 undergraduates was selected through purposive and simple random sampling techniques from seven universities in South West geopolitical zone of Nigeria. Four research questions were raised with two hypotheses generated. The (...)

    More Than Mere Colouring: The Role of Spectral Information in Human Vision.Kathleen A. Akins & Martin Hahn - 2014 - British Journal for the Philosophy of Science 65 (1):125-171.
    A common view in both philosophy and the vision sciences is that, in human vision, wavelength information is primarily ‘for’ colouring: for seeing surfaces and various media as having colours. In this article we examine this assumption of ‘colour-for-colouring’. To motivate the need for an alternative theory, we begin with three major puzzles from neurophysiology, puzzles that are not explained by the standard theory. We then ask about the role of wavelength information in vision writ large. How might wavelength information (...)

  13. Exploring the Goldmine for Academic Staff Profession Development Programmes in Nigerian Public Universities.Bolupe Abayomi Awe & Rose Nkem Tilije - 2022 - Religación. Revista de Ciencias Sociales y Humanidades 7 (32):e210914.
    The paper examined the state of the academic staffing situation in Nigerian Public Universities with various factors constraining their professional development. Funding was identified as a major factor with attendant consequences such as brain drain, academic staff deficit, structural imbalance in the distribution of academic staff and inadequate capacity-building programmes for their staff. The paper observed that most Nigerian universities lack the framework for internal staff development programmes for their academic staff. Various internal capacity building programmes that could be organized (...)

  14. Lost the Plot? Reconstructing Dennett's Multiple Drafts Theory of Consciousness.Kathleen Akins - 1996 - Mind and Language 11 (1):1-43.
    : In Consciousness Explained, Daniel Dennett presents the Multiple Drafts Theory of consciousness, a very brief, largely empirical theory of brain function. From these premises, he draws a number of quite radical conclusions—for example, the conclusion that conscious events have no determinate time of occurrence. The problem, as many readers have pointed out, is that there is little discernible route from the empirical premises to the philosophical conclusions. In this article, I try to reconstruct Dennett's argument, providing both the philosophical (...)

    Neonatal Imitation in Context: Sensorimotor Development in the Perinatal Period.Nazim Keven & Kathleen A. Akins - 2017 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 40.
    Over 35 years ago, Meltzoff and Moore (1977) published their famous article ‘Imitation of facial and manual gestures by human neonates’. Their central conclusion, that neonates can imitate, was and continues to be controversial. Here we focus on an often neglected aspect of this debate, namely on neonatal spontaneous behaviors themselves. We present a case study of a paradigmatic orofacial ‘gesture’, namely tongue protrusion and retraction (TP/R). Against the background of new research on mammalian aerodigestive development, we ask: How does (...)

  22. Cognition and the Brain: The Philosophy and Neuroscience Movement.Andrew Brook & Kathleen Akins (eds.) - 2005 - Cambridge University Press.
    This volume provides an up to date and comprehensive overview of the philosophy and neuroscience movement, which applies the methods of neuroscience to traditional philosophical problems and uses philosophical methods to illuminate issues in neuroscience. At the heart of the movement is the conviction that basic questions about human cognition, many of which have been studied for millennia, can be answered only by a philosophically sophisticated grasp of neuroscience's insights into the processing of information by the human brain. Essays in (...)

    Ralph Cudworth’s Divine Conceptualism and the Bootstrapping Objection.Zachary Adam Akin - 2021 - Philosophia Christi 23 (2):367-376.
    In this paper, I defend divine conceptualism against one prominent critique from William Lane Craig in his book God and Abstract Objects. Craig argues that the divine conceptualist’s only way out of the “bootstrapping objection” results in an unpalatable concession of defeat to the metaphysical anti-realist. Craig’s argument depends on an analysis whereby God is causally or logically prior to the divine concepts. As such, the conceptualist may resist it by adopting—following Ralph Cudworth—a version of divine conceptualism which does not (...)

    Participation Configuration in a Nigerian University Campus.Akin Odebunmi - 2012 - Pragmatics and Cognition 20 (1):186-216.
    Studies on participation and spatial orientations of college students have examined aspects of university life, as projected through language, from a reportorial or narrative perspective, but hardly any one of these studies has been devoted exclusively to how students' participation structure, together with the activities participants orient to at the participation space, evokes shared socio-academic backgrounds and cultural constraints, a major way to gain access into the students' cognitive and pragmatic tendencies. This research, thus, addresses itself to Nigerian college students' (...)

    Some Thoughts on Akin's Spiteful Computer.Ben Goertzel - 1994 - Minds and Machines 4 (1):75-80.
    Akin''s determinism paradox involves a physical system that predicts its own behavior, and then spitefully defies it. Here this paradox is reformulated in purely computational language, in terms of virtual machines. The paradox is related to the theory of self-reproducing automata; and a mathematical conjecture is given which, if verified, would resolve the paradox.

    “The Baby Dey Chuk Chuk”: Language and Emotions in Doctor–Client Interaction.Akin Odebunmi - 2012 - Pragmatics and Society 3 (1):120-148.
    Nigerian Pidgin is a popular informal communicative code in Nigerian social, economic and political experience. It is sometimes spoken in formal situations in the hospital setting when participants find it pragmatically convenient. Despite its communicative significance, little research has been carried out on the use of Pidgin in conversational interactions in Nigerian hospitals, a gap this study fills by investigating how Pidgin is used in constructing emotions relating to social and medical conditions in hospitals. Seventy five interactions between doctors and (...)

    Rönesans ve ardında Aydınlanma dönemiyle beraber gerçekleşen bilimsel ilerlemeler fazlaca dikkat çekmeyi başarmıştır. Bunun sonucunda modern bilim, bilginin en güvenilir kaynağı olarak kabul edilerek onun her meseleyi çözebileceği bir zemine oturtturulmuştur. Öyle ki bilim, Tanrı’nın var olup olmadığına dair de bilgi üretebileceği dillendirilmiştir. Bu aşamada ideolojik yaklaşımların ve din adına sergilenen bazı temelsiz akıl dışı argümanların katkısıyla da bilim artık kutsal bir müesseseye dönüştürülmüştür. Kutsala dönüştürülen bilim, bir diğer kutsal olan dinle artık ortak bir zeminde buluşamayacak hale dönüşmüş ve yanlış (...)
