    The Influence of Culture in Automotive Manufacturing — a Mexican-French Comparison.Carlos Acosta, Rafael Sánchez, Adoración Rodríguez & Jorge León - 2004 - AI and Society 18 (3):242-256.
    The objective of this article is to analyse cultural influences when French companies cooperate with Mexican companies (subsidiaries of the French, established in Mexico) in the field of automotive manufacturing. An OEM supplier and a final assembly plant were selected to perform the study. Interviews with the workers, supervisors and managers have been performed. Case studies were collected in order to analyse the problems and to illustrate technical as well as cultural solutions. The analysis showed that important differences and coincidences (...)

    Global Manufacturing in the Mexican Culture Perspective: A Case Study. [REVIEW]Carlos Acosta & Alejandro López - 2003 - AI and Society 17 (3-4):364-374.
    The objective of this work is to analyse and provide solutions to the problems encountered during the engineering processes undertaken by global companies established in Mexico. The considerations for this study are not only centred on the engineering work but also on its relation to the culture and the people within which this process takes place. One automobile consortium with a huge assembly plant in Mexico is researched, and a case study is developed for its engineering change process. The time (...)

    On the Physiological Generation of Antinomies and Paradoxes.Carlos Acosta - 2012 - Mind and Matter 10 (1):75 - 114.
    It is proposed that subconscious retro-predictions in conjunction with brain state update cycles are instrumental in the physiological generation of conscious sensations and perceptions, and in all abstract thought. In this paper the hypothesis is supported by conducting a detailed a re-evaluation of the self-referential statements in Set Theory and Formal Logic known as antinomies. This study concludes that the recursive behavior exhibited by abstract enigmas such as "Russell’s Paradox" is analogous to the oscillations typical of bistable perceptual phenomena.
