    Is Sustainability Performance Comparable? A Study of GRI Reports of Mining Organizations.Jean-François Henri & Olivier Boiral - 2017 - Business and Society 56 (2):283-317.
    The objective of this study is to analyze the measurability and interfirm comparability of sustainability performance through the qualitative content analysis of 12 sustainability reports of mining firms using the Global Reporting Initiative guidelines. The systematic comparison of information disclosed in 92 GRI indicators sheds light on the reasons underlying the impossibility of rigorously measuring and comparing the sustainability performance of firms from the same sector, which are supposed to be strictly following the same reporting guideline. These reasons include qualitative (...)

    Introduction: Beyond the Production of Ignorance: The Pervasiveness of Industry Influence through the Tools of Chemical Regulation.Nathalie Jas, Marc-Olivier Déplaude, Sara Angeli Aguiton, Valentin Thomas & Emmanuel Henry - 2021 - Science, Technology, and Human Values 46 (5):911-924.
    Research on the influence of industry on chemical regulation has mostly been conducted within the framework of the production of ignorance. This special issue extends this research by looking at how industry asserts its interests––not just in the scientific sphere but also at other stages of policy-making and regulatory process––with a specific focus on the types of tools or instruments industry has used. Bringing together sociologists and historians specialized in Science and Technology Studies, the articles of the special issue study (...)

    Face Cooling During Swimming Training in Tropical Condition.Florence Riera, Roland Monjo, Guillaume R. Coudevylle, Henri Meric & Olivier Hue - 2021 - Frontiers in Psychology 12.
    The aim of this study was to test the effect of face cooling with cold water vs. face cooling with neutral water during high-intensity swimming training on both the core temperature and thermal perceptions in internationally ranked long-distance swimmers during 2 randomized swimming sessions. After a standardized warm-up of 1,200 m, the athletes performed a standardized training session that consisted of 2,000 m at a best velocity then 600 m of aerobic work. Heart rate was continuously monitored during 5 × (...)

    Michel Henry et le problème de la communauté: pour une communauté d'habitus.Olivier Ducharme - 2013 - Paris: L'Harmattan.
    L'ouvrage propose une analyse de la question de communauté dans la pensée de Michel Henry. Après avoir explicité son positionnement sur cette problématique, l'auteur établit la présence d'une communauté d'habitus en tant que complément nécessaire à la description de la communauté dans les limites d'une phénoménologie matérielle.

    The Histoire universelle of Agrippa d’Aubigné (1616–1626), or when the historian becomes a cosmograph.Olivier Pot - 2023 - Intellectual History Review 33 (3):393-410.
    At the end of the sixteenth century, a new conception of history appeared that Jean Bodin theorized in France as geographistory. Building on the discoveries of the New World and the subsequent onset of globalization, and drawing on Polybius’s Histories as well as Stoic cosmopolitanism, geographistory aimed to impose a coherent and authentic order (“metre en ordre des choses tant désordonnees”) on the puzzle of fortuitous historical events by appealing to the immanent and material nature of things, presented as a (...)

    Sur l'esthétique positiviste.Olivier Lahbib - 2009 - Revue de Métaphysique et de Morale 62 (2):227.
    Le positivisme semble fournir une solution non philosophique pour la fondation du jugement esthétique, surtout si l’on s’en tient à l’« esthétique d’en bas » de Fechner, qui contredit l’esthétique idéaliste : l’esthétique positiviste consiste dans le fait de mesurer les sensations de plaisir sans prétendre élucider la nature de la beauté. Comme les formes régulières, et symétriques, ou non contradictoires offrent le plus de jouissance, elles sont naturellement préférées par les hommes. La théorie évolutionniste explique comment ce plaisir naturel (...)

    The writing of art.Olivier Berggruen - 2011 - London: Pushkin Press.
    This collection of essays offers different ways of seeing twentieth-century art via the medium of aesthetics. Each essay explores a different vision: Pablo Picasso's Mercure , Paul Klee's work from the thirties, Yves Klein's concept of the Void, Ed Ruscha's gunpowder drawings, and Cy Twombly's Bacchus paintings. Having curated exhibitions on the majority of these artists, Olivier Berggruen's acquaintance with their work is profound, and his approach both scholarly and highly intimate. Olivier Berggruen lives in New York and (...)

    Poincaré and the Reaction Principle in Electrodynamics.Olivier Darrigol - forthcoming - Philosophia Scientiae:63-125.
    When Henri Poincaré reviewed the then competing theories of electrodynamics in the 1890s, he required their compatibility with two principles of mechanical origin—the reaction principle and the relativity principle. Historians of relativity theory have usually focused on the relativity principle and neglected or misinterpreted Poincaré’s concern with the reaction principle. In particular, most of them have interpreted his crucial article of 1900 on “Lorentz’s theory and the principle of reaction” as an attempt to save this principle by assuming an (...)

    Radix libertatis.Olivier Boulnois - 2023 - Revue des Sciences Philosophiques Et Théologiques 107 (2):205-227.
    La philosophie médiévale a cherché la « racine de la liberté » (donc le libre arbitre radical), tantôt dans la raison (Siger de Brabant), tantôt dans la volonté (Henri de Gand), tantôt dans une combinaison des deux : la volonté comme sujet, la raison comme cause (Thomas d’Aquin). Faut-il donner raison à l’une de ces positions, et sont-elles « libertariennes » ( libertarian ) ou compatibilistes? Au lieu de répondre à cette question, l’auteur essaie plutôt de chercher le sol (...)

    Totalité et infini: une oeuvre de ruptures.Éric Hoppenot, Michel Olivier, Joëlle Hansel & Flora Bastiani (eds.) - 2017 - Paris: Éditions Manucius.
    Totalité et infini (1961), oeuvre majeure d'Emmanuel Levinas, est l'exposé de l'éthique de l'altérité qui a fait de lui l'une des figures les plus marquantes de la philosophie du XXe siècle. Dans la trace de lectures multiples (Husserl, Heidegger, Descartes, Platon ou encore Rosenzweig), il y déploie une philosophie éthique qui se départit de tout fondement ontologique. Si Totalité et infini est bien une "oeuvre de ruptures", c'est qu'elle se donne pour projet de rompre avec l'histoire de la philosophie qui (...)

    Complexity and Unity: Peter of John Olivi and Henry of Ghent on the composition of the soul.Dominik Perler & Can Laurens Löwe - 2022 - Recherches de Theologie Et Philosophie Medievales 89 (2):335-392.
    All Aristotelians subscribed to the thesis that the soul as the principle of life has many powers. But how are the powers related to the soul’s essence? It has often been argued that medieval philosophers gave two answers to this ques- tion: some took them to be necessary accidents that are distinct from the soul’s essence, whereas others simply identified them with the essence. This paper intends to show that there were alternatives to these two standard models. Peter of John (...)

    La philosophie de l'éducation n'est pas une doctrine mais un questionnement qui remet radicalement en cause tout ce que nous croyons savoir en ce domaine. Elle s'interroge donc également sur le sens et les limites des sciences de l'éducation. Dans cet ouvrage, le lecteur trouvera une réflexion sur l'éducation, du point de vue de sa finalité et de ses institutions, ainsi qu'une interrogation sur les valeurs transmises par la pédagogie. Enfin, s'il se demande quel est le critère d'une éducation réussie, (...)

    « L’invocation henryenne de la « structure monadique de l’être » ne doit pas prêter à confusion. En particulier, on ne saurait assimiler les individualités pathétiques aux monades leibniziennes, qui « n’ont point de fenêtres, par lesquelles quelque chose y puisse entrer ou sortir » : la « monadologie » de Michel Henry ne consiste point en une juxtaposition d’idéalités repliées sur elles-mêmes et coordonnées du dehors par une harmonie préétablie […] ».

    How Traditions Live and Die.Olivier Morin - 2015 - New York: Oxford University Press USA.
    Of all the things we do and say, most will never be repeated or reproduced. Once in a while, however, an idea or a practice generates a chain of transmission that covers more distance through space and time than any individual person ever could. What makes such transmission chains possible? For two centuries, the dominant view was that humans owe their cultural prosperity to their powers of imitation. In this view, modern cultures exist because the people who carry them are (...)

  39. Flat Emergence.Olivier Sartenaer - 2018 - Pacific Philosophical Quarterly 99 (S1):225-250.
    The main contention of this article is that current approaches to ontological emergence are not comprehensive, in that they share a common bias that make them blind to some conceptual space available to emergence. In this article, I devise an alternative perspective on ontological emergence called ‘flat emergence’, which is free of such a bias. The motivation is twofold: not only does flat emergence constitute another viable way to fulfill the initial emergentist promise, but it also allows for making sense (...)

    What Price Changing Laws of Nature?Olivier Sartenaer, Alexandre Guay & Paul Humphreys - 2020 - European Journal for Philosophy of Science 11 (1):1-19.
    In this paper, we show that it is not a conceptual truth about laws of nature that they are immutable (though we are happy to leave it as an open empirical question whether they do actually change once in a while). In order to do so, we survey three popular accounts of lawhood—(Armstrong-style) necessitarianism, (Bird-style) dispositionalism and (Lewis-style) ‘best system analysis’—and expose the extent, as well as the philosophical cost, of the amendments that should be enforced in order to leave (...)

  41. Sixteen Years Later: Making Sense of Emergence (Again).Olivier Sartenaer - 2016 - Journal for General Philosophy of Science / Zeitschrift für Allgemeine Wissenschaftstheorie 47 (1):79-103.
    Sixteen years after Kim’s seminal paper offering a welcomed analysis of the emergence concept, I propose in this paper a needed extension of Kim’s work that does more justice to the actual diversity of emergentism. Rather than defining emergence as a monolithic third way between reductive physicalism and substance pluralism, and this through a conjunction of supervenience and irreducibility, I develop a comprehensive taxonomy of the possible varieties of emergence in which each taxon—theoretical, explanatory and causal emergence—is properly identified and (...)

  43. “Philosophers care about the truth”: Descriptive/normative generics.Olivier Lemeire - 2023 - Mind and Language 38 (3):772-786.
    Some generic generalizations have both a descriptive and a normative reading. The generic sentence “Philosophers care about the truth”, for instance, can be read as describing what philosophers in fact care about, but can also be read as prescribing philosophers to care about the truth. On Leslie’s account, this generic sentence has two readings due to the polysemy of the kind term “philosopher”. In this paper, I first argue against this polysemy account of descriptive/normative generics. In response, a contextualist semantic (...)

  45. The Composition of Forces.Olivier Massin - 2017 - British Journal for the Philosophy of Science 68 (3):805-846.
    This paper defends a realist account of the composition of Newtonian forces, dubbed ‘residualism’. According to residualism, the resultant force acting on a body is identical to the component forces acting on it that do not prevent each other from bringing about its acceleration. Several reasons to favor residualism over alternative accounts of the composition of forces are advanced. (i) Residualism reconciles realism about component forces with realism about resultant forces while avoiding any threat of causal overdetermination. (ii) Residualism provides (...)

    Neither metaphysical dichotomy nor pure identity: Clarifying the emergentist creed.Olivier Sartenaer - 2013 - Studies in History and Philosophy of Science Part C: Studies in History and Philosophy of Biological and Biomedical Sciences 44 (3):365-373.
    Emergentism is often misleadingly described as a monolithic “third way” between radical monism and pluralism. In the particular case of biology, for example, emergentism is perceived as a middle course between mechanicism and vitalism. In the present paper I propose to show that the conceptual landscape between monism and pluralism is more complex than this classical picture suggests. On the basis of two successive analyses—distinguishing three forms of tension between monism and pluralism and a distinction between derivational and functional reduction—I (...)

  47. No purely epistemic theory can account for the naturalness of kinds.Olivier Lemeire - 2018 - Synthese 198 (Suppl 12):2907-2925.
    Several philosophers have recently tried to define natural kinds in epistemic terms only. Given the persistent problems with finding a successful metaphysical theory, these philosophers argue that we would do better to describe natural kinds solely in terms of their epistemic usefulness, such as their role in supporting inductive inferences. In this paper, I argue against these epistemology-only theories of natural kinds and in favor of, at least partly, metaphysical theories. I do so in three steps. In the first section (...)
