  1. Politics of Revenue Extraction in Post-Communist States: Poland and Russia Compared.Gerald M. Easter - 2002 - Politics and Society 30 (4):599-627.
    Since the late 1990s, a consensus has emerged among scholars of the post-communist transitions that an enfeebled state is not an asset but a liability to a transition economy. Moreover, it is now accepted that underdeveloped fiscal capacity is a leading cause of state weakness in Eastern Europe and the former Soviet Union. This article compares the alternative revenue extraction strategies developed by state leaders in post-communist Poland and Russia. It stresses political institutional constraints to explain why Poland opted for (...)

    Bright Air, Brilliant Fire: On the Matter of the Mind.Gerald M. Edelman - 1992 - Penguin Books.
    The author takes the reader on a tour that covers such topics as computers, evolution, Descartes, Schrodinger, and the nature of perception, language, and invididuality. He argues that biology provides the key to understanding the brain. Underlying his argument is the evolutionary view that the mind arose at a definite time in history. This book ponders connections between psychology and physics, medicine, philosophy, and more. Frequently contentious, Edelman attacks cognitive and behavioral approaches, which leave biology out of the picture, as (...)

    The brains of higher mammals are extraordinary integrative devices. Signals from large numbers of functionally specialized groups of neurons distributed over many brain regions are integrated to generate a coherent, multimodal scene. Signals from the environment are integrated with ongoing, patterned neural activity that provides them with a meaningful context. We review recent advances in neurophysiology and neuroimaging that are beginning to reveal the neural mechanisms of integration. In addition, we discuss concepts and measures derived from information theory that lend (...)

    A Trifocal Perspective on Medicine as a Moral Enterprise: Towards an Authentic Philosophy of Medicine.Gerald M. Ssebunnya - 2015 - Journal of Medicine and Philosophy 40 (1):8-25.
    The fundamental claim that the practice of medicine is essentially a moral enterprise remains highly contentious, not least among the dominant traditional moral theories. The medical profession itself is today characterized by multicultural pluralism and moral relativism that have left the Hippocratic moral tradition largely in disarray. In this paper, I attempt to clarify the ambiguity about practicing medicine as a moral enterprise and echo Pellegrino’s call for a phenomenologically and teleologically derived philosophy of medicine. I proffer a realistic trifocal (...)

    Health and Human Rights: Old Wine in New Bottles?Gerald M. Oppenheimer, Ronald Bayer & James Colgrove - 2002 - Journal of Law, Medicine and Ethics 30 (4):522-532.
    It is one of the remarkable and significant consequence of the AIDS epidemic that out of the context of enormous suffering and death there emerged a forceful set of ideas linking the domains of health and human rights. At first, the effort centered on the observation that protecting individuals from discrimination and unwarranted intrusions on liberty were, contrary to previous epidemics, crucial to protecting the public health and interrupting the spread of HIV But in fairly short order, the scope of (...)

    Beyond the Sterility of a Distinct African Bioethics: Addressing the Conceptual Bioethics Lag in Africa.Gerald M. Ssebunnya - 2017 - Developing World Bioethics 17 (1):22-31.
    In the current debate on the future of bioethics in Africa, several authors have argued for a distinct communitarian African bioethics that can counter the dominancy of Western atomistic principlism in contemporary bioethics. In this article I examine this rather contentious argument and evaluate its validity and viability. Firstly, I trace the contextual origins of contemporary bioethics and highlight the rise and dominance of principlism. I particularly note that principlism was premised on a content-thin notion of the common morality that (...)

    Ideological Language and Social Movement Mobilization: A Sociolinguistic Analysis of Segregationists' Ideologies.Gerald M. Platt & Rhys H. Williams - 2002 - Sociological Theory 20 (3):328-359.
    The current "cultural turn" in the study of social movements has produced a number of concepts formulating the cultural-symbolic dimension of collective actions. This proliferation, however, has resulted in some confusion about which cultural-symbolic concept is best applied to understanding cultural processes involved in social movements. We articulate a new definition of ideology that makes it an empirically useful concept to the study of social-movement mobilization. It is also formulated as autonomous of concepts such as culture and hegemony and of (...)

    What is the Role of Tortuosity in the Kozeny-Carman Equation?Nattavadee Srisutthiyakorn & Gerald M. Mavko - 2017 - Interpretation: SEG 5 (1):SB57-SB67.
    Hydraulic tortuosity is an important parameter in characterizing fluid-flow heterogeneity in porous media. The most basic definition of tortuosity is the ratio of the average flow path length to the sample length. Although this definition seems straightforward, the lack of understanding and the lack of proper ways to measure tortuosity make it one of the most abused parameters in rock physics. Hydraulic tortuosity is often treated merely as a fitting factor, or worse, it is neglected by being combined with a (...)
