  3. Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Defies the Mind-Body-Schism of Medicine: New Perspectives on a Multiple Realisable Developmental Systems Disorder.Elling Ulvestad - 2008 - Medicine, Health Care and Philosophy 11 (3):285-292.
    The article maintains that chronic fatigue syndrome can be properly understood only by taking an integrated perspective in which evolutionary, developmental and ecological aspects are considered. The integrative approach, supplemented by a complexity theory and psychoneuroimmunological research, is capable of explaining why there are so few structural aberrations to be found in chronic fatigue syndrome and why specific treatment is so difficult to establish. A major outcome of the investigation, that all individuals with chronic fatigue syndrome are diseased in their (...)

    Biosemiotic Knowledge — a Prerequisite for Valid Explorations of Extraterrestrial Intelligent Life.Elling Ulvestad - 2002 - Sign Systems Studies 30 (1):283-291.
    The scientific search for extraterrestrial intelligent life is probably one of the most ambitious projects ever taken in biology. The article discusses methodological problems associated with the search. It is emphasized that investigators of extraterrestrial intelligence, in contrast to investigators of terrestrial matters, have no valid pre-understanding of their subject matter. In this barren setting, utilization of semiotic knowledge is shown to be a prerequisite for achievement of valid data. Owing to methodological shortcomings, it is concluded that the NASA funded (...)
