  • The process which has resulted in this book began many decades ago when, as an undergraduate student, I found myself asking the question, ‘What did the Romans think they were doing when they created the Roman Empire?’ For many years this question lurked in the background of my thoughts as I worked on Roman history more generally and on Roman Spain in particular, not least because itwas not clear tome howsuch a questionmight be answered.What follows is, I hope, if not an answer, at least a contribution towards one.

  • This paper underlines the idea of endogenous growth theory that new or higher quality products have significant impacts on productivity and economic growth. Different with previous studies, this paper uses a quite comprehensive definition of variety, which distinguishes the country of origin of the products. With disaggregated level of export data of Japan from 1980 to 2000, the empirical results suggest that nearly half of the industries studied have positive and significant relationship between varieties and Total Factor Productivity (TFP).

  • For a thousand years after the schools of Athens were closed by Justinian philosophy made no real advance; no essentially new ideas about the constitution of nature, the workings of mind, or the ends of life were put forward. It would be false to say that during this period no progress was made. The civilisation of the Roman Empire was extended far beyond its ancient frontiers; and, although much ground was lost in Asia and Africa, more than the equivalent was gained in Northern Europe.

  • The first requirement for a comparative approach to constitutional politics—politics of the creation and reconstruction of political order—is to broaden its scope by shifting the focus of analysis from constitutionalism to constitution-making. I have argued elsewhere that constitution-making often has little to do with constitutionalism.

  • About five or six hundred years before Christ, almost the whole of the interior of Asia was united in one vast empire. The founder of this empire was Cyrus the Great. He was originally a Persian; and the whole empire is often called the Persian monarchy, taking its name from its founder's native land. Cyrus was not contented with having annexed to his dominion all the civilized states of Asia.

  • I) "Realism with a wink" might best describe how even sympathetic interpreters of Kant's Critique of Pure Reason have viewed Kant's assertion that the broad transcendental idealist framework yields realism at the empirical level. There remains the common belief that Kamian appearances are mind dependent in a way that effectively excludes empirical realism from being accepted as a genuine form of realism. The word "appearance" (Erscheinung) itself is usually enough to scare off even the most well-intentioned realist.

  • Whether we get forms with extensive clarity by use of Baumgarten’s aesthetic considerations can not be answered conclusively on these cases, because much indicate that it has given some vague ideas when students encounter these considerations during evaluations, but without putting them into real use in their leading feature or as a guidelines in the design process. However, to the question: How can designers formulate aesthetic considerations which communicate a clear message to other professionals? an obvious answer is to make use of Baumgarten’s aesthetic considerations. ...

  • In 1997, both the underlying confidence and optimism are hard to sustain. The War on Poverty and its successor programs seem to have made little impact on those populations that are at the lowest economic levels in U.S. society. If anything, the widening income distribution and the curbing of governmental expenditures for these groups have left them worse off. Yet one result of the efforts to address poverty in the intervening years has been the growth of well-articulated theoretical notions coupled with serious efforts to ground these ideas in empirical analysis.

  • Therapists (allied health professionals and psychotherapists alike) are increasingly called upon to do research. Many are drawn to phenomenology; its holistic appreciation of everyday human experience resonates for them. Yet, as novice researcher-practitioners engage the field they are frequently brought up short, baffled by the language and sheer depth of ideas in this strange new world. Soon the novice is faced with bewildering choices.

  • Liquid Robotics’ chief of innovative applications, Edward Lu, a former astronaut, often remarks that we know more about outer space than we do about the oceans on which most of life on Earth depends for survival. The company’s Wave Glider, which looks like a surf board packed with instruments, is trying to change that. Company founder Roger Hine got the idea when an investor asked him how he would track the migratory routes of humpback whales. The gliders, which rely on wave motion to maintain a speed of around 1.5 knots and count on solar energy to power transmitters that...

  • This paper describes a novel approach towards the empirical approximation of discourse relations between different utterances in texts. Following the idea that every pair of events comes with preferences regarding the range and frequency of discourse relations connecting both parts, the paper investigates whether these preferences are manifested in the distribution of relation words (that serve to signal these relations).

  • When we began as editors of Lawrence Erlbaum Associates’ Organization and Management Series, our lofty aim was to publish works, both theoretical and empirical ones, that would nudge the boundaries of organization studies. Lord and Brown’s book admirably achieves this aim. The authors present an innovative theory that, we predict, will drive empirical research. The theory supplies a new way to think about an old topic, leadership. It does so by drawing heavily on ideas about social cognition and self-regulation. Reading Lord and Brown’s book is truly eye-opening. Enjoy the adventure....
