We suggest that morbid jealousy falls on the extreme end of a jealousy continuum. Thus, many features associated with normal jealousy will be present in individuals diagnosed with morbid jealousy. We apply Boyer & Lienard's (B&L's) prediction one (P1; target article, sect. 7.1) to morbid jealousy, suggesting that fitness-related life-cycle dimensions predict sensitivity to cues, and frequency, intensity, and content of intrusive thoughts of partner infidelity.

We describe delusional disorder–jealous type (“morbid jealousy”) with the adaptationist perspective used by Darwinian psychiatrists and evolutionary psychologists to explain the relatively common existence and continued prevalence of mental disorders. We then apply the “harmful dysfunction” analysis to morbid jealousy, including a discussion of this disorder as (1) an end on a continuum of normal jealousy or (2) a discrete entity.

A partir de l’étude de corpus de textes, manuelle et informatique, nous présentons une réflexion sur l’analyse de texte ou de discours à travers l’exemple de l’exposition didactique. Celle-ci peut s’envisager à différents grains. Nous posons la question de la taille du texte, de son style collectif à travers sa disposition et ses marques. Nous interrogeons la pertinence du modèle choisi en relation avec la notion d’échelle. Enfin, nous posons la question de la résolution adéquate pour des logiciels d’analyse, à (...) l’aide d’une dizaine d’exemples. (shrink)
[D. H. Mellor] Kant's claim that our knowledge of time is transcendental in his sense, while false of time itself, is true of tenses, i.e. of the locations of events and other temporal entities in McTaggart's A series. This fact can easily, and I think only, be explained by taking time itself to be real but tenseless. /// [J. R. Lucas] Mellor's argument from Kant fails. The difficulties in his first Antinomy are due to topological confusions, not the tensed (...) nature of time. Nor are McTaggart' s difficulties due to the tensed nature of time. The ego-centricity of tensed discourse is an essential feature of communication between selves, each of whom refers himself as 'I', and is required for talking about time as well as experience and agency. Arguments based on the Special Theory are misconceived. Some rest on a confused notion of 'topological simultaneity'. In the General Theory a cosmic time is defined, as also in quantum mechanics, where a natural present is defined by a unique hyperplane of collapse into eigen-ness. (shrink)
This piece outlines concrete cases of benefit sharing that occur in relation to the sharing of human (biological) samples. For example, it surveys Indonesia’s decision, in 2006, to stop sharing virus samples of H5N1 (avian influenza) with the WHO Global Influenza Surveillance Network (GISN). It also outlines some of the ethical issues that arise in these cases.
In an article based on an unpublished paper by Professor Cornford, Mr. I. M. Glanville returned to the suggestion that the words S0009838800011605_inline1 at the beginning of Chapter 11 of the Poetics , which are part of the definition of peripeteia, refer back to the phrase S0009838800011605_inline2 S0009838800011605_inline3 , thereby raising the question whose expectation it is to which events turn out contrary, that of the audience or of the characters in the play.
