The recent growth of empirical scholarship in law, which some have termed empirical legal studies, has received much attention. A less-noticed implication of this trend is its potential impact on the manner of scholarly production in legal academia. A common prediction is that academic collaboration rises with scholarly specialization. As the complexity of a field grows, more human capital and more diverse types of human capital are needed to make a contribution. This Article presents two tests of whether empiricism has spurred more coauthorship in law. First, the Article shows that the fraction of articles in the top fifteen law reviews that were empirical or coauthored (or both) trended upwards between 2000 and 2010. The increase in empirical articles accounted for a substantial share of the growth in coauthored articles, and the correlation between coauthorship and empiricism persisted after controlling for numerous other influences. Second, the Article examines the articles published since 1989 in

Rea claims naturalism is without rational foundation. In rebuttal, this essay shows that adopting the research program of basic empiricism is universally appealing, and since naturalism as a worldview follows from adopting basic empiricism and applying it to the facts of the world, naturalism has a rational foundation. Rea argues to the contrary that naturalism is only a research program and never a worldview. This claim is disproved. Reas ultimate conclusion, that naturalism must abandon materialism and realism about material objects and other minds, because naturalism cannot discover intrinsic modal properties, is also disproved, by showing naturalists can discover them.

Event Date: Wednesday, April 8, 2015 6:15pm | Event Description: Rens Bod, professor at University of Amsterdam, sketches the longue durée of the pattern-seeking tradition in the humanities and compares it to the interpretative tradition. Bod argues that interpretations were not always in opposition to pattern-seeking, but were often constructed on the patterns found. The common wisdom that the humanities are moving towards science when they search for patterns is mistaken. Instead, the search for patterns has been a continuous line in the humanities from Antiquity onwards.

There are lots of dead singing teachers represented on this blog who were considered scientists during their day, Manuel García, perhaps, being the most illustrious. I mean, after you are credited with inventing the laryngoscope, your stock kinda goes up, doesnt it? His science-as primitive as it was-has stood the test of time. Others, of course, like his friend Charles Lunn, werent so lucky. His theory of the false folds turned out to be a crack-pot idea. And then there are those like the Lampertis, father and son, who were empiricists. Read Giovanni Battista Lampertis book of maxims, Vocal Wisdom (1931), as divulged by his student William Earl Brown, and youll understand what I mean. Their knowing is of a different sort. Its procedural rather than declarative (read my post on Dr. Katherine Verdolini Abbott a few days back and listen to her talk given to NATS for more context.) And this gets to my point: Its the job of the voice teacher to know scientific stuff, not the student. ...
Abstract objects have often garnered the interest of philosophers because they raise problems for popular theories. In ontology, abstract objects are considered problematic for physicalism and some forms of naturalism. Historically, the most important ontological dispute about abstract objects has been the problem of universals. In epistemology, abstract objects are considered problematic for empiricism. If abstracta lack causal powers or spatial location, how do we know about them? It is hard to say how they can affect our sensory experiences, and yet we seem to agree on a wide range of claims about them. Some, such as Edward Zalta and arguably, Plato in his Theory of Forms, have held that abstract objects constitute the defining subject matter of metaphysics or philosophical inquiry more broadly. To the extent that philosophy is independent of empirical research, and to the extent that empirical questions do not inform questions about abstracta, philosophy would seem especially suited to ...
The Midwest Victorian Studies Association will hold its 2015 annual conference at the University of Iowa, Iowa City, May 1-3, 2015. Papers are sought for topics related to the conference theme of "Sense and the Senses." We encourage papers on any aspect of this topic in art, music, history, science, philosophy, theater or literature: senses and the invisible; sounds and soundscapes; listening/depictions of listening; the relationship between the body and mind; the five senses; the representation of sense or reason; rationality and embodiment; the relationship(s) among sight, sound, smell, touch, and taste; the conflict or accord between reason and the senses; the scientific, psychological, philosophical, or empirical study of the senses; the role of the senses in the creation of ideas or knowledge; the relationship between sense and emotion; empiricism and the imaginary; the disarray or unreliability of the senses; synaesthesia; mesmerism, hypnotism, and extrasensory perception; sensory textures ...
From Chris on Research in the Arts Here in the UK, arts research culture might be a bit more accepted, but it is still nascent. I agree that the terms practice-based and theory-based set up a problematic dichotomy for research culture. In acknowledging the distinction, one runs the risk of mirroring the historical bias towards empiricism. This bias has supported a hierarchy of epistemologies that, descending from quantitative research to qualitative research and from theory-based to practice-based research, denies the creative arts a platform for expression as knowledge.. The ways in which the creative arts shape our understanding of the world are difficult to measure, but no less significant than other models of knowledge. If most pure science researchers would accept that some form of rudimentary research occurs prior to art making, can we take it even further? Can we suggest that an artwork - in itself - is a form of research?. I believe we can. Especially when it involves the active ...

Background: Empirical inculcation is vital for producing quality research professionals and upon realizing the increasing demand of emerging scientific research professionals, National Academy of Young Scientist (NAYS) launched its science for youth (S4Y) program in Pakistan with its emphasis on empiricism. Methods: S4Y team was galvanized to undertake this task and different scientific activities were organized by them in different schools and colleges of Pakistan during 2011 _ 2012. Scientific activities that were arranged included seminars on diverse scientific subjects and career counseling sessions. Results: Response of students showed that the implementation of this program can contribute in achieving the target of producing qualified skilled research professionals and upturning the Pakistan literacy rate. Experimental activities were also planned but its implementation was restricted due to financial strains. 39 activities were conducted in 2012 in the schools and colleges of all the provinces

What exactly constitutes "science?" Science today is not the science of ancient or medieval times; modern science began with methodical, designed experiments, not solely observations. In the 21st century, modern empiricism and post-modernism philosophies of science co-exist as pathways to knowledge. Scientific initiatives - team science, discipline-specific science, innovation science and data analytics - are relative newcomers to what constitutes "science." A critical challenge facing scientists and scholars is how we continue to develop scientific initiatives in this and future centuries.. When we first learn about science, we are told that it is a cooperative endeavor and systematic process that builds knowledge through research over time. Research scientists garner consensus until there are facts that form a knowledge base; the consensus period can take years or even decades. During this time, many different ideas and theories are espoused, and the scientific community tries to make sense of ...
Forest ecology and management are model-rich areas for research. Models are often cast as either empirical or mechanistic. With evolving climate change, hybrid models gain new relevance because of their ability to integrate existing mechanistic knowledge with empiricism based on causal thinking. The utility of hybrid platforms results in the combination of mensurational and physiological outputs and model routines. We present model precepts for constructing a hybrid model able to accommodate climate change and schematic examples of hybrid submodules for biomass to dimension conversion, light interception, photosynthesis, and soil water. ...
Here on a new episode of ID the Future is a quite a neat and even charming conversation between biologist Ray Bohlin and biophysicist Cornelius Hunter. Dr. Hunter offers another instance illustrating how with Darwinism, "the theory is always driving the ideas in spite of the evidence." Its this "religious" motivation behind the theory that Hunter notes as a theme in his writing here at Evolution News.. Listen to the podcast or download it here.. Hunter explains how mitochondria, the powerhouse of eukaryotic cells, pose a powerful and newly acute problem for evolution. For years evolutionists thought that some early cells must somehow have brought other cells inside of them, "gobbled them up" in technical terms, and those other cells then mysteriously evolved into mitochondria. But recent research undermines that notion. Why do many evolutionists then still cling to the idea? Because, as Hunter says, in many ways, religion not empiricism drives science. Evidence is interpreted to fit the theory, ...
This dissertation is about sound in context. Since sensory processing is inherently multimodal, research in sound is necessarily multidisciplinary. The present work has been guided by principles of systematicity, ecological validity, complementarity of methods, and integration of science and art. The main tools to investigate the mediating relationship of people and environment through sound have been empiricism and psychophysics. Four of the seven included papers focus on perception. In paper A, urban soundscapes were reproduced in a 3D installation. Analysis of results from an experiment revealed correlations between acoustic features and physiological indicators of stress and relaxation. Paper B evaluated soundscapes of different type. Perceived quality was predicted not only by psychoacoustic descriptors but also personality traits. Sound reproduction quality was manipulated in paper D, causing two effects on source localisation which were explained by spatial and semantic crossmodal ...
Our internationally recognized faculty conducts research on a wide range of behavioral phenomena including alternative mating tactics, behavioral adaptations of herbivores to host plants, circadian rhythms, courtship behavior, foraging behavior, hunger, insect learning, mate choice, pollinator behavior, seed caching, seed dispersal, sexual selection, sleep, social behavior and spatial memory.. We integrate theory with empiricism, and employ a diversity of methods, ranging from manipulative field experiments to large-scale genetic screens, genome-wide analysis, and manipulation of neural function to determine the genes and neurons that underlie complex behaviors.. ...
... One. In the future the perfect human being will be a Hermaphrodite - an Intersexual fusion of genders combining male and female genitalia, male and female hormones - Hermes and Aphrodite, god and goddess, diablo and diabla, Sonny and Cher.. Intersexuality - common in the Animal Kingdom - is the mingling of the sexual characteristics of both male and female within a single creature. Intersexual creatures combine aspects of genital form and reproductive organs, thereby exhibiting contradictions of the morphological criteria of gender. Intersexual human beings - Hermaphrodites - possess both testicular and ovarian gonadal tissues and exhibit ambiguous gender - in other words they have both a penis and vagina. Perhaps the reader envisions "chicks with dicks," "pre-op" hookers, outrageous "She-males" or twisted Victorian nightmares - they may seem real, but statistically speaking such stereotypes are based more on pornographic empiricism than on research: the preponderance of ...

Although the concept of biology as a single coherent field arose in the 19th century, the biological sciences emerged from traditions of medicine and natural history reaching back to Galen and Aristotle in ancient Greece. During the Renaissance and early modern period, biological thought was revolutionized by a renewed interest in empiricism and the discovery of many novel organisms. Prominent in this movement were Vesalius and Harvey, who used experimentation and careful observation in physiology, and naturalists such as Linnaeus and Buffon who began to classify the diversity of life and the fossil record, as well as the development and behavior of organisms. Microscopy revealed the previously unknown world of microorganisms, laying the groundwork for cell theory. The growing importance of natural theology, partly a response to the rise of mechanical philosophy, encouraged the growth of natural history (though it entrenched the argument from design).[4]. Over the 18th and 19th centuries, ...
Evidence and inference in their modern form (in US law, in any event) presuppose the death (or nonexistence) of a grand ontology -- a general theory of (or about being), a theory that sees some sectors of being as the foundation and basis of everything else. Much or most contemporary (US legal) thinking takes the view that anything can in principle be evidence of anything else. But if one has an ontology -- a theory that points to an accessible, or intelligible, foundation of things --, then the best evidence of how things stand in the world is how things stand at the foundation of everything that one sees in the world.. In Western intellectual history ontologies came to an end with the rise of the nominalism that was British empiricism. After Hume, philosophy was possible as epistemology, but not as ontology. Kant rebuffed Humes skepticism -- or attempted to do so -- by giving causality theoretical validity. Did Kant (perhaps despite himself) thereby rejuvenate ontology? I think not. If Kant ...
When Galileo turned his instrument toward Jupiter, he discovered the most astonishing sight of all -- that faint pinpricks of light never before seen around the vast planet were moving, obviously in orbit . [...] with two days to go before the election, talk of God, genes and of ideology versus empiricism resounds in a political season in which science has become as much a hot-button issue as it was in Galileos day. At this political moment, one side wants to assert that mercury levels are not really so harmful, and that simply telling teenagers not to have sex - - while saying nothing about condoms and other methods of birth control -- will reduce teenage pregnancies. On Feb. 24, 1616, the Qualifiers of the Holy Office concluded that a sun- centered theory was foolish and absurd in philosophy, and formally heretical, inasmuch as it expressly contradicts the teachings of many passages of Holy Scriptures. [...] Galileos Florence and nearby Rome were beautiful cities for vacationing British and
Physical Hydrology is a refreshing addition to the literature on scientific hydrology.

It does not supply the subject matter of science, however, as does intellectual perception of the divine idea of extension. iii. "empiricism" I will now consider certain seventeenth-century empiricists who took over Epicurean and Stoic opposition both to transcendent universals and to scepticism. Crucially, they held that there are no universal forms or ideas outside the mind,13 so that there is no need to postulate a special faculty of reason or intellect with which to apprehend them. Science - if it is not, as some thought, beyond us - is possible only because of the minds ability to order and abstract the materials received through the senses. 22 So if being transparently honest is one of the virtues, then Berkeley did not have every virtue. Yet neither is it clear that for him, being straightforward or open was always a virtue. 23 This is not so, however, for in Alciphron, Dialogue 3, Section 16, Berkeley (through Euphranor) opposes the freethinkers principle that one should always be open ...
In this book, Colin McGinn presents a concise, clear, and compelling argument that the origins of knowledge are innate-that nativism, not empiricism, is correct in its theory of how concepts are acquired. McGinn considers the particular case of sensible qualities-ideas of color, shape, taste, and so on. He argues that these, which he once regarded as the strongest case for the empiricist position, are in fact not well explained by the empiricist account that they derive from interactions with external objects. Rather, he contends, ideas of sensible qualities offer the strongest case for the nativist position-that a large range of our knowledge is inborn, not acquired through the senses. Yet, McGinn cautions, how this can be is deeply problematic; we have no good theories about how innate knowledge is possible. Innate knowledge is a mystery, though a fact ...
Philosopher Langdon Winner rather poetically refers to scientific public engagement as technological somnambulism. The image he invokes is that of a vast network of societal sleepwalking; interacting but not engaging. This is especially true within a biomedical context. Whenever an inventive entity creates novel technologies, he or she inspires and develops two important constructs. The first is the physical instrument, or perhaps something less concrete, such as an idea or methodology. This construct is publicly visible, ideally reproducible, and may be marketable. The second construct is more powerful, but far more subtle. It is a social metaphor. It is the way that the instruments users and the innovators audience make sense of the technology, apply it to their cultural epistemologies, and make it fit into the complex structures that pervade the way in which groups of people have come to know how the world works. A problem, as I see it, with Western empiricism and the dissemination of ...

Experience of the world explains how we can form the conception of properties and objects as categorical, rather than merely as complexes of dispositions. Sensational and representationalist views of the content of experience cannot explain how it is that experience can play this role. The relational view of experience accomplishes this. I look at the bearing of this view on traditional empiricism.
Idealism became the dominant philosophical school of thought in late 19th-century Britain. In this study, the text examines its roots in Greek and German thinking and locates it among the prevalent methodologies and theories of the period: empiricism and positivism, naturalism, evolution, and utilitarianism. In particular, the book sets it in the context of the late 19th- and early 20th-century debate about a science of society and the contemporary preoccupation with community. The new discipline of sociology was closely tied to the study of and search for community, and the book shows how the idealists offered a philosophy of community to a generation particularly concerned by this notion. It investigates the idealist construction - by thinkers such as Bosanquet, MacKenzie, and Ritchie - of an interpretive social philosophy which none the less adopted various strands of empiricist, positivist, and even naturalist thought in its attempt to frame a social theory suited to the dilemmas of an

Without a doubt, no other health-care approach equals the efficacy of chiropractic in the general field of conservative neuromusculoskeletal rehabilitation.. For many centuries, therapeutic rehabilitation was a product of personal experience passed on from clinician to clinician. In the last 20 years, however, it has become an applied science. In its application, of course, much empiricism remains that can be called an intuitive art -and this is true for all forms of professional health care.. INTRODUCTION. The word trauma means more than the injuries so common with falls, accidents, and contact sports. Taber1 defines it as "A physical injury or wound often caused by an external force or violence" or "an emotional or psychologic shock that may produce disordered feelings or behavior." This is an extremely narrow definition for trauma can also be caused by intrinsic forces as seen in common strain. In addition to its cause being extrinsic or intrinsic, with a physical and emotional aspect, it ...

Hi Sandy,. You cannot say anything regarding atheism. Because the norm of atheism regarding knowledge is:. all is relativie there is no absolute truth. AND to each there own.. So you are really contradictive. But thats okay. Its kind of normal.. The whole era of philosophy was regarding knowledge. The attempt was to try to show a way to know universals WITHOUT God (as the Infinite Reference Point).. Da Vinci Tried to do this with mathematics. The majority of his career was this. He failed. The entire 2500 years reign of philosophy failed, and Christianity stands.. But, you try to redefine things, and to each his own, so what, right?. Since atheism has yet to find a way to go from the particualrs to the universals via empiricism (the choice of the day), then they are an old lady that has fallen and cant get up.. If knowledge is the accumalation of information, then by what mode of knowing do you relate the pieces of information via the universal(s)? This must be done to know. Perception is ...
This constructive nature of visual perception has only recently been fully appreciated. Earlier thinking about sensory perception was greatly influenced by the British empiricism philosophers, notably John Locke, David Hume, and George Berkeley, who thought of perception as an atomistic process in which simple sensory elements, such as color, shape, and brightness, were assembled in an additive way, component by component. The modern view that perception is an active and creative process that involves more than just the information provided by the retina has its roots in the philosophy of Immanuel Kent and was developed in detail in the early 20th century by the German psychologists Max Wertheimer, Kurt Koffka, and Wolfgang Koehler, who founded the school of Gestalt psychology ...

In her many projects, ranging from photography to curation to writing, New York based Joanna Ebenstein utilizes a combination of art and scholarship to tease out the ways in which the pre-rational roots of modernity are sublimated into ostensibly "purely rational" cultural activities such as science and medicine.Much of her work uses this approach to investigate historical moments or artifacts where art and science, death and beauty, spectacle and edification, faith and empiricism meet in ways that trouble contemporary categorical expectations.In the exhibition "Ecstatic Raptures and Immaculate Corpses" Ebenstein turns this approach to an examination of the uncanny and powerfully resonant representations of the dead, martyred, and anatomized body in Italy, monuments to humankinds quest to eternally preserve the corporeal body and defeat death in arenas sacred and profane.The artifacts she finds in both the churches, charnel houeses and anatomical museums of Italy complicate our ideas of the ...
1). Origin of the Antithesis. Rationalism connotes in philosophy the tendency of thought that lays special stress, not on the matter of experience, but on the products of the human reason, whether these consist of innate ideas or a priori concepts. The opposite principle is empiricism, which makes knowledge simply the reproduction of observed facts in their unity. In theology the term rationalism was first applied to criticism of church doctrine as practised by the Socinians and later by the deists. The real point of its application, however, is the stricter, scholastic form of the theological enlightenment which was assumed in Germany in dependence upon the Wolffian and Kantian philosophies. Rationalism unites itself organically with a universal movement of emancipation from ecclesiastical authority, partly in progress beforehand, and partly contemporaneous, in France and England, but assuming its characteristic type from certain philosophical schools and the German formative environment as a ...
Idealism became the dominant philosphical school of thought in late nineteenth-century Britain.

Literature and the Touch of the Real offers a critique of neo-Saussurean theories of the constitution of the world through language or the essential divorce of language from the real. It does this by, first, offering a critical account of the contradictions and omissions of Saussures Course in General Linguistics. Secondly, in a revisionist reading of Jacques Derrida, it argues that far from reducing reality to language, Derridas concept of the text in fact argues that the world cannot be eradicated from the linguistic. Thirdly, it offers an account of Ludwig Wittgensteins concepts of grammar, criteria, aspect perception, and language-games that reintegrates language and the world while avoiding the instrumentalist pitfalls of realism and empiricism.

Its worth taking a moment to think about that achievement. I tend to think of modern empiricism starting around the time of Galileo, which is a little over 400 years ago.
