    A Framework Linking Non-Living and Living Systems: Classification of Persistence, Survival and Evolution Transitions. [REVIEW]L. Dennis, R. W. Gray, L. H. Kauffman, J. Brender McNair & N. J. Woolf - 2009 - Foundations of Science 14 (3):217-238.
    We propose a framework for analyzing the development, operation and failure to survive of all things, living, non-living or organized groupings. This framework is a sequence of developments that improve survival capability. Framework processes range from origination of any entity/system, to the development of increased survival capability and development of life-forms and organizations that use intelligence. This work deals with a series of developmental changes that arise from the uncovering of emergent properties. The framework is intended to be general, but (...)

    Throughout the biological and biomedical sciences there is a growing need for, prescriptive ‘minimum information’ (MI) checklists specifying the key information to include when reporting experimental results are beginning to find favor with experimentalists, analysts, publishers and funders alike. Such checklists aim to ensure that methods, data, analyses and results are described to a level sufficient to support the unambiguous interpretation, sophisticated search, reanalysis and experimental corroboration and reuse of data sets, facilitating the extraction of maximum value from data sets (...)

  13. Supervisors and Academic Integrity: Supervisors as Exemplars and Mentors. [REVIEW]Phillip W. Gray & Sara R. Jordan - 2012 - Journal of Academic Ethics 10 (4):299-311.
    The inculcation of academic integrity among post-graduate students is an ongoing concern for universities across the world. While various researchers have focused on causal relations between forms of instruction, student characteristics, and possession of academic integrity, there is need for an increased examination of the role of supervisors in shaping student perceptions of academic integrity. Unlike the undergraduate level, where student interaction with professors is often limited, post-graduate students have an ongoing relationship with their supervisors, whether at the Masters or (...)

    Research Integrity in Greater China: Surveying Regulations, Perceptions and Knowledge of Research Integrity From a Hong Kong Perspective.Sara R. Jordan & Phillip W. Gray - 2013 - Developing World Bioethics 13 (3):125-137.
    In their 2010 article ‘Research Integrity in China: Problems and Prospects’, Zeng and Resnik challenge others to engage in empirical research on research integrity in China. Here we respond to that call in three ways: first, we provide updates to their analysis of regulations and allegations of scientific misconduct; second, we report on two surveys conducted in Hong Kong that provide empirical backing to describe ways in which problems and prospects that Zeng and Resnik identify are being explored; and third, (...)

    Responsible Conduct of Research Training and Trust Between Research Postgraduate Students and Supervisors.Sara R. Jordan & Phillip W. Gray - 2012 - Ethics and Behavior 22 (4):297 - 314.
    Does responsible conduct of research (RCR) training improve levels of trust between researchers? Using data gathered as part of a survey on the attitudes of master's and doctoral-level students toward RCR, we found that RCR training correlated with a weakened beliefs of students toward their supervisors' ethicality but a stronger belief in the ethicality of their peers. We believe that these findings point to new avenues of research on trust in the academic setting and to needs for curriculum changes in (...)

    Reporting Ethics Committee Approval in Public Administration Research.Sara R. Jordan & Phillip W. Gray - 2014 - Science and Engineering Ethics 20 (1):77-97.
    While public administration research is thriving because of increased attention to social scientific rigor, lingering problems of methods and ethics remain. This article investigates the reporting of ethics approval within public administration publications. Beginning with an overview of ethics requirements regarding research with human participants, I turn to an examination of human participants protections for public administration research. Next, I present the findings of my analysis of articles published in the top five public administration journals over the period from 2000 (...)

    The Development of Logic. [REVIEW]W. R. - 1962 - Review of Metaphysics 16 (1):166-166.
    Inviting comparison with I. M. Bochenski's History of Formal Logic, this highly competent history differs in several features of plan. It deals exclusively with the Western world, and gives more than half its space to the modern period. It presents a continuous exposition rather than a sequence of direct quotations connected by comments. It has few references to the secondary literature, referring the reader to Bochenski and to the Journal of Symbolic Logic for these. Philosophical logic, or philosophy of logic, (...)

    Formale Logik. [REVIEW]W. R. - 1957 - Review of Metaphysics 11 (2):343-343.
    A scholarly and superbly done history of formal logic, devoted mainly to four movements: the Greek; the scholastic; modern mathematical logic; and Indian Logic. Father Bochenski makes extensive use of direct quotation--in German translation by himself, when the original language is not German. The translations are sound, the documentation precise, and the organization lucid. The treatment is balanced and unified; the selection of passages to be quoted is judicious. All in all, a masterly work. Criticism will probably focus more on (...)

    Sir David Ross, now nearing his eightieth birthday has published another of his valuable critical texts, provided, like its predecessors, with a commentary. He has made full use of the contributions of Drossaert Lulofs, Forster and Nuyens, at the same time judging them with an independent mind and adding views and arguments of his own. This book greatly facilitates the study of these physiological-psychological treatises which form so indispensable a supplement to the De Anima. --R. W.

    Conformably to the practice of the series to which this edition belongs, the critical apparatus accompanying the Greek text is simplified, reporting only the readings of the six oldest manuscripts, except for eighteen passages on which the readings are given more fully, as samples. In his Latin preface Sir David briefly evaluates the Greek commentators and reports the contributions of the Western editors, particularly Torstrik. In the text he proposes a number of readings of his own, and his edition will (...)

The remainder, surviving in an Arabic translation, is here presented in a handsomely published English translation. A welcome supplement to the meagre Loch Galen.--R. W.

    Leibniz: Allbeseelung Und Skepsis. [REVIEW]W. R. - 1962 - Review of Metaphysics 16 (2):401-401.
    Wolff sees Leibniz, in contrast with, for example, the epistemologist Berkeley, as "in erster Linie Lebensphilosoph", and thus a forerunner of Nietzsche. The historical influence, mediated by Schopenhauer and Hartmann, was recognized by Nietzsche only near the end of his career. New Essays IV.vi.7 ad fin., which speaks of "the pleasure of being deceived by an agreeable perspective," is interpreted thus : "Leibniz spricht hier wie Nietzsche:... Aufheben der Illusion... würde den Menschen zum Wahnsinn treiben."--R. W.

    Review of H.G. Callaway (Ed) R.W. Emerson, Society and Solitude: Twelve Chapters. [REVIEW]Richard A. S. Hall - 2009 - The Pluralist 4 (1):118-123.
    Howard Callaway's new edition of Ralph Waldo Emerson's Society and Solitude is an invaluable contribution to both the primary and secondary literature on Emerson. Its contribution to the primary sources is its use of the original 1870 edition of Emerson's text, though with modernized spellings to facilitate the reader's understanding. Its contribution to the secondary literature consists in the scholarly apparatus of page-by-page annotations, an introduction, a chronology, a bibliography, and an index. Callaway's Society and Solitude is a worthy companion (...)

    There are two motivations commonly ascribed to historical actors for taking up statistics: to reduce complicated data to a mean value (e.g., Quetelet), and to take account of diversity (e.g., Galton). Different motivations will, it is assumed, lead to different methodological decisions in the practice of the statistical sciences. Karl Pearson and W. F. R.
