Decis o perspectivas interdisciplinares Book Excerpt:

Este livro revisita o ciclo de conferências sobre “Decisão”, organizado pelo III-UC, INESC Coimbra e FEUC, cujas sessões tiveram lugar em Outubro e Novembro de 2005, que contaram com a participação de quatro cientistas de mérito internacionalmente reconhecido, os Profs. Alexis Tsoukiàs (Paris), John Broome (Oxford), Ralph Keeney (Duke) e Paul Slovic (Oregon). Estes cientistas apresentaram quatro perspetivas diversas acerca do tema do ciclo: as da investigação operacional, da filosofia, da análise de decisões e da psicologia, respetivamente. Cada um dos artigos dos conferencistas convidados foi selecionado pelo seu autor como um dos que melhor representaria a perspetiva apresentada na sua palestra. O texto de Slovic descreve a importância que o afeto tem na determinação de juízos e decisões, defendendo que a confiança depositada nesses sentimentos pode ser caracterizada como uma Heurística Afetiva. O artigo de Tsoukiàs apresenta uma visão retrospetiva sobre a evolução da teoria da decisão para uma metodologia de ajuda à decisão, considerando o autor que todas as teorias da decisão partilham uma característica comum – a utilização de linguagens formais e abstratas e de um modelo de racionalidade, defendendo uma abordagem científica para a ajuda à decisão em problemas enfrentados por indivíduos e/ou organizações. O texto de Keeney sintetiza algumas das principais ideias que preconiza para intervir em situações de decisão, neste caso em situações de definição de políticas públicas, advogando e ilustrando a importância de basear a intervenção na eliciação dos valores do público e na sua modelação através de uma função de utilidade multiatributo. O texto de Broome pretende ilustrar os moldes em que o problema de tomada de decisões pode aparecer no âmbito da Filosofia, debruçando-se sobre um tema de longo debate entre filósofos: pode um raciocínio culminar numa ação ou apenas pode culminar numa crença? Cada um destes artigos, traduzido para a língua portuguesa, é acompanhado por um comentário de um autor português, respetivamente: Armando Mónica de Oliveira, Manuel Matos, João Clímaco e António Manuel Martins. O livro inclui ainda um capítulo introdutório que oferece uma breve panorâmica das disciplinas que se entrecruzam na palavra Decisão.

Forming Abstraction Book Excerpt:

Art produced outside hegemonic centers is often seen as a form of derivation or relegated to a provisional status. Forming Abstraction turns this narrative on its head. In the first book-length study of postwar Brazilian art and culture, Adele Nelson highlights the importance of exhibitionary and pedagogical institutions in the development of abstract art in Brazil. By focusing on the formation of the São Paulo Biennial in 1951; the early activities of artists Geraldo de Barros, Lygia Clark, Waldemar Cordeiro, Hélio Oiticica, Lygia Pape, and Ivan Serpa; and the ideas of critics like Mário Pedrosa, Nelson illuminates the complex, strategic processes of citation and adaption of both local and international forms. The book ultimately demonstrates that Brazilian art institutions and abstract artistic groups—and their exhibitions of abstract art in particular—served as crucial loci for the articulation of societal identities in a newly democratic nation at the onset of the Cold War.

Advances in Disease Vector Research Book Excerpt:

Volume 10 of Advances in Disease Vector Research consists of seven chapters on vectors that affect human or animal health and six chapters on plant pathogens and their vectors. In Chapter 1, Yasuo Chinzei and DeMar Taylor discuss hormonal regulation of vitellogenesis in ticks. Many blood sucking insects and ticks transmit pathogens by engorgement, which induces vitellogenesis and oviposition in adult animals. To investigate the pathogen transmission mechanism in vector animals, information on the host physiological and endocrinological conditions after engorgement is useful and important because pathogen development or proliferation occurs in the vector hosts at the same time as the host reproduction. Chinzei and Taylor have shown that in ticks, juvenile hormone (JH) is not involved in the endocrinological processes inducing vitellogenin biosynthesis. Synganglion (tick brain) factor(s) (vitellogenesis inducing factor, VIF) is more important to initiate vitellogenesis after engorgement, and ecdysteroids are also related to induction of vitellogenin synthesis. In their chapter, based mainly on their own experimental data, the authors discuss the characterization of main yolk protein, vitellogenin (Vg) , biosynthesis and processing in the fat body, and hormonal regulation of Vg synthesis in tick systems, including ixodid and argasid ticks.

Global History Visual Culture and Itinerancies Book Excerpt:

National studies have demonstrated their inability to correctly understand global phenomena, and the way in which they affect societies. This chronologically ambitious book investigates methodological and theoretical issues from Roman times to the present, in terms of globalization. In this context, one of the most relevant parameters of change emerges: the itinerancy of culture and knowledge. Therefore, this volume argues that itinerant agents carry with them cultural baggage, transporting and transmitting it to other spaces. In this way, interconnection begins, producing active changes in global history and visual culture. Contributions to this book focus on comparative studies, the evolution of global phenomena, historical processes in their diachrony, regional studies, changing economies, cultural continuities, and methodological questions on globalization, among others. In addition, the book opens with a contribution from Professor Peter Burke.
