    Erôs in Ancient Greece.Ed Sanders, Chiara Thumiger, Christopher Carey & Nick Lowe (eds.) - 2013 - Oxford University Press.
    This volume brings together eighteen articles which examine erôs as an emotion in ancient Greek culture. Taking into account all important thinking about the nature of erôs from the eighth century BCE to the third century CE, it covers a very broad range of sources and theoretical approaches, both in the chronological and the generic sense.

    Beyond stakeholder engagement: The challenges of stakeholder participation in corporate governance.Christopher Low & Christopher Cowton - 2004 - International Journal of Business Governance and Ethics 1 (1):45-55.
    The UK Government is presently conducting a consultation process focused on the introduction of a new legal form of company, that of the Community Interest Company (CIC). Organisations choosing this form of incorporation would be subject to a legal requirement to involve their stakeholders in the governance of the company. This development is just the latest example of an increased interest generally in making companies more responsive to their stakeholders. The statutory duty placed on companies taking the CIC form raises (...)

    The finale of Plautus' Mercator.Christopher Lowe - 2018 - Hermes 146 (2):199-207.
    The arguments of Lefèvre for extensive Plautine rewriting at the end of the Mercator are here reinforced. The theory of an allusion to the Teucer legend is rejected. The question of how Plautus’ Greek model ended is left open.

    The structure of plautus’ menaechmi.Christopher Lowe - 2019 - Classical Quarterly 69 (1):214-221.
    Widely different views have been held concerning the structure of Plautus’ Menaechmi. On the one hand, the sequence of misunderstandings arising from the presence in the same city of a pair of identical twins with the same name has been likened to clockwork and attributed in essentials to an unknown Greek dramatist. On the other hand, E. Stärk has stressed features of the play which are typical of improvised comedy and put forward the bold theory that it was constructed by (...)

    What's new: Biosensors: Current applications and future potential.Nicola C. Foulds & Christopher R. Lowe - 1985 - Bioessays 3 (3):129-132.
    Biological molecules such as enzymes and antibodies display a unique capacity to recognize and respond to other molecules in a way which can be exploited in the development of analytical devices. In a biosensor, the biological recognition system creates a physiochemical change proximal to a suitable transducer and thereby converts the concentration of the analyte into a quantifiable electrical signal. The design and construction of these devices requires an imaginative combination of biological, chemical, physical and engineering disciplines. Biosensors will find (...)

  10. The ethics of prescribing low- to no-efficacy stimulants.Christopher Langston - 2021 - Multiple Sclerosis and Related Disorders 57.
    Nourbakhsh et al. found that amantadine, modafinil, and methylphenidate were no better than placebo at reducing fatigue after six weeks. Consequently, physicians have raised ethical concerns about prescribing these medicines as “placebos.” Such concerns are premature and overshadowed by ethical concerns surrounding the habit-forming potential of modafinil and methylphenidate.

    Socio-Cultural Change and Business Ethics in Post-Soviet Countries: The Cases of Belarus and Estonia.Christopher J. Rees & Galina Miazhevich - 2009 - Journal of Business Ethics 86 (1):51-63.
    The aim of this literature-based study is to explore the influence of socio-cultural factors on business ethics in post-soviet countries with dissimilar cultural contexts. Specifically, this article seeks to identify and compare contextual influences on informal norms of morality in business in transitional post-soviet societies. In order to pursue this investigation, the countries of Belarus and Estonia were identified as being among the most noteworthy examples of culturally different post-soviet countries in transition. The study reveals contradictory manifestations of mixtures of (...)

    Natural Logic for Textual Inference.Christopher D. Manning - unknown
    This paper presents the first use of a computational model of natural logic—a system of logical inference which operates over natural language—for textual inference. Most current approaches to the PAS- CAL RTE textual inference task achieve robustness by sacrificing semantic precision; while broadly effective, they are easily confounded by ubiquitous inferences involving monotonicity. At the other extreme, systems which rely on first-order logic and theorem proving are precise, but excessively brittle. This work aims at a middle way. Our system finds (...)

    The rise of food banks and the challenge of matching food assistance with potential need: towards a spatially specific, rapid assessment approach.Christopher M. Bacon & Gregory A. Baker - 2017 - Agriculture and Human Values 34 (4):899-919.
    In the United States, food banks served an estimated 46 million people in 2015. A combination of government policy reforms and political economic trends contributed to the rising numbers of individuals relying on private food assistance in the US, the United Kingdom and other high-income countries. Although researchers frequently map urban food environments, this project is one of the first to map private food assistance and potential need at the census-tract scale. We utilize Geographic Information Systems, demographic data, and food (...)

  19. On the Carroll–Chen Model.Christopher Gregory Weaver - 2017 - Journal for General Philosophy of Science / Zeitschrift für Allgemeine Wissenschaftstheorie 48 (1):97-124.
    I argue that the Carroll-Chen cosmogonic model does not provide a plausible scientific explanation of the past hypothesis (the thesis that our universe began in an extremely low-entropy state). I suggest that this counts as a welcomed result for those who adopt a Mill-Ramsey-Lewis best systems account of laws and maintain that the past hypothesis is a brute fact that is a non-dynamical law.

    Oxford mathematics at a low ebb? An 1855 dispute over examination results.Christopher D. Hollings - forthcoming - Annals of Science.
    Between December 1855 and March 1856, a public dispute raged, in British national newspapers and locally published pamphlets, between two teachers at the University of Oxford: the mathematical lecturer Francis Ashpitel and Bartholomew Price, the professor of natural philosophy. The starting point for these exchanges was the particularly poor results that had come out of the final mathematics examinations in Oxford that December. Ashpitel, as one of the examiners, stood accused of setting questions that were too difficult for the ordinary (...)

    The "Subject" of Nietzsche's Perspectivism CHRISTOPH COX FORMERLY TAKEN TO ENDORSE a profound skepticism and relativism, Nietz- sche's "doctrine of perspectivism" recently has been seen to fit within tradi- tional conceptions of epistemology and ontology? In the most recent and influential study of the matter, Maudemarie Clark maintains that, properly understood, perspectivism is "an obvious and nonproblematic doctrine. ''~ In a similar vein, Brian Leiter has recently argued that "perspectivism turns out to be much less radical than is usually supposed," (...)

    Evidence of Biased Advertising in the Case of Social Egg Freezing.Christopher Barbey - 2017 - The New Bioethics 23 (3):195-209.
    Oocyte cryopreservation, or ‘egg freezing,’ is the practice of preserving unfertilised oocytes for later fertilisation. This practice allows women to extend their reproductive years. In 2014, Facebook and Apple announced that they would subsidise their female employees’ elective — or ‘social’ — use of egg freezing so that these women can more easily reconcile the demands of career and family life. This announcement engendered controversy and moral debate. Given that social egg freezing is becoming more popular, ethical and empirical analyses (...)

    Enforcement of foreign judgments, systemic calibration, and the global law market.Christopher A. Whytock & Samuel P. Baumgartner - 2022 - Theoretical Inquiries in Law 23 (1):119-164.
    There are important reasons for states to recognize and enforce the judgments of other states’ courts. There are also reasons that may militate against recognition or enforcement of certain foreign judgments, making it appropriate to calibrate or “fine tune” the presumption favoring recognition and enforcement so it is not applied too broadly. Most calibration principles, such as the principle that a judgment from a court lacking jurisdiction should not be recognized, are case-specific. However, one calibration principle that is, to our (...)

    Overcoming stochastic variations in culture variables to quantify and compare growth curve data.Christopher W. Sausen & Matthew L. Bochman - 2021 - Bioessays 43 (8):2100108.
    The comparison of growth, whether it is between different strains or under different growth conditions, is a classic microbiological technique that can provide genetic, epigenetic, cell biological, and chemical biological information depending on how the assay is used. When employing solid growth media, this technique is limited by being largely qualitative and low throughput. Collecting data in the form of growth curves, especially automated data collection in multi‐well plates, circumvents these issues. However, the growth curves themselves are subject to stochastic (...)

    'Exceptional circumstances' – access to low priority treatments after the Herceptin case.Christopher Newdick - 2006 - Clinical Ethics 1 (4):205-208.
    What is the link between patients' rights to NHS treatment and PCTs' duties to live within their budgets? This was the issue in Rogers v Swindon PCT [2006], in which a patient had been denied trastuzamab (Herceptin®) for early-stage breast cancer. In principle, rationing is lawful and PCTs have to make hard choices about spending priorities, but they may not ignore the interests of needy patients in doing so. Rather, they must balance the 'corporate' interests of the PCT with the (...)

    Dirty bombs and garbage cases.Christopher Uggen - 2007 - Social Research: An International Quarterly 74 (2):707-711.
    As U.S. correctional populations have rocketed upward since the 1970s, researchers have quite properly focused attention on prisons and prisoners. Yet examinations of the U.S. punishment record must look beyond prison gates, as criminal justice sanctions also trigger a range of formal and informal collateral consequences. For those so punished, employment restrictions and other collateral sanctions complicate and confound efforts to assume the rights and duties of citizenship.I here suggest two broad approaches for scaling back some of the deleterious effects (...)

    From a restricted to full linguistic space: An affirmative action strategy for the Udmurt language.Christopher Williams - 2013 - Pragmatics and Society 4 (2):221-239.
    This study analyzes the long-term reasons why Udmurt occupies a restricted linguistic space in the post-Soviet state – the low status of Udmurt, due to Soviet language and other policies; urbanization; population shifts; myths and stereotypes about Udmurts; making Russian compulsory after 1938 – and the consequences of this for the fate of the Udmurt language today (relatively few native speakers). The central argument is that Udmurts have not overcome the Stalinist legacy, which led to the reversal of Lenin’s ‘affirmative (...)

    Ethics of genomic passports: should the genetically resistant be exempted from lockdowns and quarantines?Christopher Gyngell & Julian Savulescu - 2022 - Journal of Medical Ethics 48 (10):689-694.
    Lockdowns and quarantines have been implemented widely in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. This has been accompanied by a rise in interest in the ethics of ‘passport’ systems that allow low-risk individuals greater freedoms during lockdowns and exemptions to quarantines. Immunity and vaccination passports have been suggested to facilitate the greater movement of those with acquired immunity and who have been vaccinated. Another group of individuals who pose a low risk to others during pandemics are those with genetically mediated resistances (...)

    Which words are hard to recognize? Prosodic, lexical, and disfluency factors that increase ASR error rates.Christopher D. Manning - unknown
    Many factors are thought to increase the chances of misrecognizing a word in ASR, including low frequency, nearby disfluencies, short duration, and being at the start of a turn. However, few of these factors have been formally examined. This paper analyzes a variety of lexical, prosodic, and disfluency factors to determine which are likely to increase ASR error rates. Findings include the following. (1) For disfluencies, effects depend on the type of disfluency: errors increase by up to 15% (absolute) for (...)

  34. Love and Power: Grau and Pury (2014) as a Case Study in the Challenges of X-Phi Replication.Edouard Machery, Christopher Grau & Cynthia L. Pury - 2020 - Review of Philosophy and Psychology (4):1-17.
    Grau and Pury (Review of Philosophy and Psychology, 5, 155–168, 2014) reported that people’s views about love are related to their views about reference. This surprising effect was however not replicated in Cova et al.’s (in press) replication study. In this article, we show that the replication failure is probably due to the replication’s low power and that a metaanalytic reanalysis of the result in Cova et al. suggests that the effect reported in Grau and Pury is real. We then (...)

    Encoding the world around us: Motor-related processing influences verbal memory.Christopher R. Madan & Anthony Singhal - 2012 - Consciousness and Cognition 21 (3):1563-1570.
    It is known that properties of words such as their imageability can influence our ability to remember those words. However, it is not known if other object-related properties can also influence our memory. In this study we asked whether a word representing a concrete object that can be functionally interacted with would enhance the memory representations for that item compared to a word representing a less manipulable object . Here participants incidentally encoded high-manipulability and low-manipulability words while making word judgments. (...)

    ArgumentIn spring 1888, an anonymous critic raised severe doubts about Ernst Mach's and Peter Salcher's studies, published one year before, on the processes in the air caused by very rapid projectiles. Paraphrasing the experiments for the French popular science magazineLa Nature, the critic insinuated that the photographs upon which Mach and Salcher's argument were ostensibly based must have been of such low quality that they did not allow any well-founded conclusion. The critic did not deny the phenomena Mach and Salcher (...)

    Empathic forecasting of the big-fish-little-pond effect.Christopher A. Stockus & Ethan Zell - forthcoming - Cognition and Emotion.
    The big-fish-little-pond effect (BFLPE) is the tendency for students to evaluate themselves more favourably when they have high rank in a low rank school than low rank in a high rank school. Research has documented the BFLPE on experienced emotions. We conducted three studies that examined forecasts of how the BFLPE influences other people’s emotions (i.e. empathic forecasts). In Study 1, participants received performance feedback about themselves or another person and reported their own affect or anticipated the other person’s affect. (...)

    Sortilin: An unusual suspect in cholesterol metabolism.Joseph B. Dubé, Christopher T. Johansen & Robert A. Hegele - 2011 - Bioessays 33 (6):430-437.
    The concentration of low‐density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol (C) in plasma is a key determinant of cardiovascular disease risk and human genetic studies have long endeavoured to elucidate the pathways that regulate LDL metabolism. Massive genome‐wide association studies (GWASs) of common genetic variation associated with LDL‐C in the population have implicated SORT1 in LDL metabolism. Using experimental paradigms and standards appropriate for understanding the mechanisms by which common variants alter phenotypic expression, three recent publications have presented divergent and even contradictory findings.

    The myside bias in written argumentation entails excluding other side information from essays. To determine the locus of the bias, 86 Experiment 1 participants were assigned to argue either for or against their preferred side of a proposal. Participants were given either balanced or unrestricted research instructions. Balanced research instructions significantly increased the use of other side information. Participants' notes, rather than search patterns, predicted the myside bias. Participants who defined good arguments as those that can be “proved by facts” (...)

    Association of medical futility with do-not-resuscitate (DNR) code status in hospitalised patients.Christoph Becker, Alessandra Manzelli, Alexander Marti, Hasret Cam, Katharina Beck, Alessia Vincent, Annalena Keller, Stefano Bassetti, Daniel Rikli, Rainer Schaefert, Kai Tisljar, Raoul Sutter & Sabina Hunziker - 2021 - Journal of Medical Ethics 47 (12):e70-e70.
    Guidelines recommend a ‘do-not-resuscitate’ code status for inpatients in which cardiopulmonary resuscitation attempts are considered futile because of low probability of survival with good neurological outcome. We retrospectively assessed the prevalence of DNR code status and its association with presumed CPR futility defined by the Good Outcome Following Attempted Resuscitation score and the Clinical Frailty Scale in patients hospitalised in the Divisions of Internal Medicine and Traumatology/Orthopedics at the University Hospital of Basel between September 2018 and June 2019.

    PRM inference using Jaffray & Faÿ’s Local Conditioning.Christophe Gonzales & Pierre-Henri Wuillemin - 2011 - Theory and Decision 71 (1):33-62.
    Probabilistic Relational Models (PRMs) are a framework for compactly representing uncertainties (actually probabilities). They result from the combination of Bayesian Networks (BNs), Object-Oriented languages, and relational models. They are specifically designed for their efficient construction, maintenance and exploitation for very large scale problems, where BNs are known to perform poorly. Actually, in large-scale problems, it is often the case that BNs result from the combination of patterns (small BN fragments) repeated many times. PRMs exploit this feature by defining these patterns (...)

    Through with the looking glass: Escape responses to implicit mirror exposure.Christopher T. Burris & Eugene Lai - 2012 - Consciousness and Cognition 21 (1):464-470.
    Based on the assumption that confrontation with one’s physical reflection can be aversive, we explored the appeal of possible “escape routes” when incidentally exposed to one’s mirror image. Compared to their no-exposure peers, individuals who felt less chronically “trapped” in their bodies showed increased interest in flow experiences and decreased interest in experiences involving low-level thinking or a subjective sense of meaning when exposed to their reflection. Mirror exposure also increased overall interest in “pure consciousness events,” wherein the transcendence of (...)

    When the strong punish: Why net costs of punishment are often negligible.Christopher R. von Rueden & Michael Gurven - 2012 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 35 (1):43-44.
    In small-scale societies, punishment of adults is infrequent and employed when the anticipated cost-to-benefit ratio is low, such as when punishment is collectively justified and administered. In addition, benefits may exceed costs when punishers have relatively greater physical and social capital and gain more from cooperation. We provide examples from the Tsimane horticulturalists of Bolivia to support our claims.

    What Counts as Success? Wider Implications of Achieving Planning Permission in a Low-Impact Ecovillage.Fiona Shirani, Christopher Groves, Karen Henwood, Nick Pidgeon & Rin Roberts - 2020 - Environmental Values 29 (3):339-359.
    The need for energy system change in order to address the energy 'trilemma' of security, affordability and sustainability is well documented and requires the active involvement of individuals, families and communities who currently engage with these systems and technologies. Alongside technical developments designed to address these challenges, alternative ways of living are increasingly being envisaged by those involved in low-impact development. This article draws on data from a qualitative longitudinal study involving residents of a low-impact ecovillage in West Wales, UK, (...)

    Gender and the experience of moral distress in critical care nurses.Christopher B. O’Connell - 2015 - Nursing Ethics 22 (1):32-42.
    Background:Nursing practice is complex, as nurses are challenged by increasingly intricate moral and ethical judgments. Inadequately studied in underrepresented groups in nursing, moral distress is a serious problem internationally for healthcare professionals with deleterious effects to patients, nurses, and organizations. Moral distress among nurses has been shown to contribute to decreased job satisfaction and increased turnover, withdrawal from patients, physical and psychological symptoms, and intent to leave current position or to leave the profession altogether.Research question:Do significant gender differences exist in (...)

  49. Red Queen and Red King Effects in Cultural Agent-Based Modeling: Hawk Dove Binary and Systemic Discrimination.S. M. Amadae & Christopher J. Watts - 2022 - Journal of Mathematical Sociology 41.
    What endogenous factors contribute to minority (Red Queen) or majority (Red King) domination under conditions of coercive bargaining? We build on previous work demonstrating minority disadvantage in non-coercive bargaining games to show that under neutral initial conditions, majorities are advantaged in high conflict situations, and minorities are advantaged in low conflict games. These effects are a function of the relationship between (1) relative proportions of the majority and minority groups and (2) costs of conflict. Although both Red King and Red (...)

    Governance and the prevention of fraud in charities in England and Wales.Saffet Aras Uygur & Christopher J. Napier - 2023 - International Journal of Business Governance and Ethics 17 (5):495-524.
    Despite increasing public attention and media coverage of fraud, no solution to this problem has been designed specifically for the not-for-profit sector. This study focuses on charities in England and Wales and examines variables derived from a content analysis of 42 fraud and 42 no-fraud charities' annual reports and financial statements. We use logistic regression to explain and predict fraud in the charity sector. We examine whether a range of governance-type variables are significantly related to the likelihood of fraud in (...)
