    Students' and Faculty Members' Perceptions of the Importance of Business Ethics and Accounting Ethics Education: Is There an Expectations Gap? [REVIEW]Nell Adkins & Robin R. Radtke - 2004 - Journal of Business Ethics 51 (3):279-300.
    Despite a wealth of prior research, little consensus has arisen about the goals and effectiveness of business ethics education. Additionally, accounting academics have recently been questioned as to their commitment to accounting ethics education. The current study examines whether accounting students' perceptions of business ethics and the goals of accounting ethics education are fundamentally different from the perceptions of accounting faculty members. The study uses a survey instrument to elicit student and faculty responses to various questions concerning the importance of (...)

    The Greeks and Us: Essays in Honor of Arthur W.H. Adkins.A. W. H. Adkins, Robert B. Louden & Paul Schollmeier (eds.) - 1996 - University of Chicago Press.
    Arthur W. H. Adkins's writings have sparked debates among a wide range of scholars over the nature of ancient Greek ethics and its relevance to modern times. Demonstrating the breadth of his influence, the essays in this volume reveal how leading classicists, philosophers, legal theorists, and scholars of religion have incorporated Adkins's thought into their own diverse research. The timely subjects addressed by the contributors include the relation between literature and moral understanding, moral and nonmoral values, and the (...)

    Merit, Responsibility, and Thucydides.A. W. H. Adkins - 1975 - Classical Quarterly 25 (02):209-.
    Since other readers of Mr. Creed's recent interesting article may find themselves in a similar puzzlement to my own over certain statements there made, I offer this reply in the hope of providing elucidation. It is clear that someone named Adkins has perpetrated something heinous; but that ‘someone’ manifestly holds views which differ in a number of important respects from my own. The most convenient method of demonstrating this fact would be to juxtapose passages of Creed with passages of (...)

  5. Free Market Conservatism : A Critique of Theory & Practice.Edward Nell (ed.) - 2009 - Routledge.
    First published in 1984, this book carefully dissects and convincingly demonstrates that conservative economics is incoherent in theory and disastrous in practice. The three main schools of thought supporting "free-market" policies – supply side economics, monetarism and rational expectations – are examined in turn and each is found defective. Three case studies of conservative policy in action follow: Reagan’s U.S., Thatcher’s U.K. and Pinochet’s Chile and their courses are charted in depth. In addition, Robert Heilbroner and Edward Nell analyse (...)

    A Theory of Behavior Interaction in Dyads: A Structuralist Account.Hans Westmeyer, Friedhelm Eller, Katharina Winkelmann & Verena Nell - 1982 - Theoretical Medicine and Bioethics 3 (2):209-231.
    A theory from the behavioral and social sciences is presented from the structuralist point of view. A more comprehensive theory-net is outlined, some basic terms and core assumptions are formulated, and an expansion of the theory towards two intended applications is given. Finally, some results of a first empirical test of the theory are reported. The aim of the paper is to show that the structuralist account of scientific theories is not confined to mathematical theories from the natural sciences, but (...)

    'Friendship' and 'Self-Sufficiency' in Homer and Aristotle.A. W. H. Adkins - 1963 - Classical Quarterly 13 (01):30-.
    This article falls into two parts: the first is an analysis, in the light of my earlier discussions of and of the Homeric usage of and the second, an attempt to show that, as in the case of the effects of Homeric usage persist to a considerable degree in the moral philosophy of Aristotle. In the earlier discussions I have argued that the higher value placed upon the competitive in Greek entails that co-operative relationships, even when valued and necessary, take (...)

    Heidegger and Language.Arthur W. H. Adkins - 1962 - Philosophy 37 (141):229 - 237.
    Heidegger's thought has recently been made more available to English readers by the publication of two books: one a translation of one of Heidegger's works, the other, by Thomas Langan, an American scholar, described as a critical study of Heidegger. Heidegger's philosophy has had little or no influence in England; and this seems a good opportunity for considering whether this neglect is merited, or whether some defence can be offered of Heidegger's curious manipulations of the German and Greek tongues. Since (...)

    Where “Sex” Is Born(E): Intersexed Births and the Social Urgency of Heterosexuality. [REVIEW]Roger Adkins - 1999 - Journal of Medical Humanities 20 (2):117-133.
    Our beloved “genders” of the present moment are neither universal nor trans-historical presences in the world. The specific gender order which we employ today is the legacy of a particular cultural and political history, and there is still a great deal at stake in preserving it. As a graduate student I stumbled upon the topic of intersexuality a few years ago and found myself enthralled with its implications. Continuing to present itself inspite of all our scientific knowledge about the supposed (...)

    Truth, KoΣmoΣ, and Apeth in the Homeric Poems.A. W. H. Adkins - 1972 - Classical Quarterly 22 (01):5-.
    A number of scholars have discussed the difficulty of preserving accurately—or at all—information about the past1 in the Greek Dark Ages when the literacy of Minoan/Mycenean Greece had been lost. Such preservation necessarily depended on the memories of the members of the society, especially those of the professional ‘rememberers’, the bards of the oral tradition: in such a society, if knowledge of an event is to be available to future generations, it must not be forgotten.

    Aristotle and the Best Kind of Tragedy.Arthur W. H. Adkins - 1966 - Classical Quarterly 16 (01):78-.
    The literary criticism of the Greeks and Romans furnishes some of the most baffling documents which have come down to us from antiquity. Nor could it be otherwise. Few elements of language can be at once so ephemeral and so elusive as the overtones of words used in aesthetic contexts; even in our own language it is only with a conscious effort that the appropriate overtones of words used by quite recent critics can be recalled. Such recall must be much (...)

    Eyxomai EyxΩ9Bh and EyxoΣ in Homer.A. W. H. Adkins - 1969 - Classical Quarterly 19 (01):20-.
    This paper will discuss the behaviour of and in the Homeric poems. These words are allotted a variety of different ‘meanings’ by the lexicographers. For example, LSJ s.v. I. pray, II. vow, III. profess loudly, boast, vaunt; s.v. I. prayer, II. boast, vaunt, or object of boasting, glory; s.v. I. thing prayed for, object of prayer, II. boast, vaunt. I shall, of course, discuss the whole range of these words; but I begin with some observations on ‘prayer’. It may appear (...)

    Basic Greek Values in Euripides' Hecuba and Hercules Furens.Artheur W. H. Adkins - 1966 - Classical Quarterly 16 (02):193-.
    To be satisfactory, a scholarly interpretation of a Greek tragedy must enable the present-day reader to see the play, so far as is possible, through the eyes of the fifth-century audience. If it does not, if it merely substitutes the predilections of a particular scholar for those of the reader, it is useless, and indeed worse than useless; for the reader unassisted by the interpretation of others may well examine the play critically for himself, while the reader with an interpretation (...)

    Cruelty and the Psychology of History.Victor Nell - 2006 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 29 (3):246-251.
    This response deals with seven of the major challenges the commentators have raised to the target article. First, I show that the historical-anecdotal method I have followed has its roots in sociology, and that there is a strong case for the development of a “psychology of history.” Next, the observational data suggesting that intentional cruelty cannot be restricted to humans is rebutted on the grounds that cruelty requires not only an intention to inflict pain, but to do so because that (...)

    Il tutto e le parti. Categorie e soggetti della conflittualità politica nell'antichità.Furio Ferraresi - 2012 - Scienza and Politica. Per Una Storia Delle Dottrine 24 (47).
    Il saggio esamina il modo in cui nell’Antichità classica è stato pensato il conflitto politico a partire dalla riflessione su “fazioni” e “partiti”. L’analisi prende le mosse da Omero ed Esiodo, per i quali la Giustizia è lo strumento con cui dal caos originario si passa al cosmo ordinato. Si concentra quindi sulla nascita della polis come fattore di mediazione del conflitto fra le “parti” sociali, affrontando il pensiero di Tucidide, Platone e Aristotele, che condividono la stessa critica nei (...)

    «Una vita non esaminata non vale la pena di essere vissuta». La filosofia nell’intreccio tra vita e sapere.Rossella Fabbrichesi - 2017 - Nóema 8.
    L’articolo mette a confronto l’idea socratica della ricerca infinita come motivo ispiratore della filosofia e l’idea, frequentata da Peirce e Wittgenstein in età contemporanea, di un sapere legato alla pura descrizione della vita e delle sue forme pragmatiche, del piano dell’indubitabile certezza che fa da sfondo ad ogni evidenza guadagnata attraverso una critica rigorosa. Ci si chiede dunque come debba configurarsi oggi il metodo, la via, della filosofia, nell’intreccio tra vita vissuta e vita esaminata.

    Il viaggio oltremondano del Profeta nell’iconografia musulmana.Anna Maria Martelli - 2013 - Doctor Virtualis 12.
    La pittura islamica e in particolare l’illustrazione dei manoscritti, opere a circolazione limitata e prevalentemente privata, ha avuto una notevole diffusione godendo del patrocinio delle corti. Alcune pitture, soprattutto quelle che illustrano l’Ascensione celeste del profeta Muhammad, ma anche le Storie dei Profeti, pitture datate al XIV e XV secolo, rappresentano l’uno e gli altri col volto scoperto. Solo relativamente tardi, in particolare nel mondo iranico, ma anche presso gli ottomani o i Moghul dell’India, il volto del Profeta diventa una (...)

    In the field of economic policy, recommendations by members of the Austrian school of economics are opposed to the popular demands and statements made by most priests and other religious authorities. On the other hand, in the field of theory, the methodological individualism of the Austrians allows an easier dialogue with religious traditions respectful of free will. The influential writings of Mateo Liberatore, S.J. and Oswald von Nell-Breuning S.J, can help foster the dialogue between economists that promote market based (...)
