"This volume evaluates the impact of Freud on the 20th century, and the contributors speak concerning the place of Freud in the life and thought of our era. Arranged by the editor into a six-part panel, these thoughts are presented as an historic contribution to our understanding of our natures and destinies, and to the help of psychoanalysis and its creator in exploring them, as we move unsteadily into a new millennium. No contributor denies Freud's central importance for the way we have come to view man and the world, and none would minimize his prime contribution to the achievement of a technique for the healing of mental ills. To the editor at least, one question seems to run through the present symposium like a haunting obbligato: Will the Twentieth Century go down in history as the Freudian century?"--Preface.

La époco que estudia el autor fue la de un notable cambio en la ideología y la mentalidad del hombre, enfrentado con el nacimiento de la máquina y con el incipiente desarrollo de la técnica. De la conciencia de los hombres que la vivieron surgió la necesidad de mejor ocnocer y comprender el mundo que les rodeaba.\r\nLas polémicas de Descartes y de Galileo contra el concepto aristotélico de la naturaleza y de la ciencia, la disputa entre antiguos y modernos, la obra de Diderot y de los enciclopedistas. Tal es el enjundioso panorama del pensamiento humano que el autor despliega en las páginas de este libro.\r\nProcede, al mismo tiempo, a una reconstitución del pensamiento moderno y de sus orígenes que nos ayuda a comprender mejor los problemas actuales

Methodology, metaphysics, and the history of science : in memory of Benjamin Nelson by R. S Cohen( Book )

11 editions published in 1984 in English and held by 353 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This selection of papers that were presented (or nearly so!) to the Boston Colloquium for the Philosophy of Science during the seventies fairly re presents some of the most disturbing issues of scientific knowledge in these years. To the distant observer, it may seem that the defense of rational standards, objective reference, methodical self-correction, even the distin guishing of the foolish from the sensible and the truth-seeking from the ideological, has nearly collapsed. In fact, the defense may be seen to have shifted; the knowledge business came under scrutiny decades ago and, indeed, from the time of Francis Bacon and even far earlier, the practicality of the discovery of knowledge was either hailed or lamented. So the defense may be founded on the premise that science may yet be liberating. In that case, the analysis of philosophical issues expands to embrace issues of social interest and social function, of instrumentality and arbitrary perspective, of biological constraints (upon knowledge as well as upon the species-wide behavior of human beings in other relationships too), of distortions due to explanatory metaphors and imposed categories, and of radical comparisons among the perspectives of different civilizations. Some of our contributors are frankly programmatic, showing how problems must be formulated afresh, how evasions must be identified and omissions rectified, but they do not reach their own completion

Exports and International Logistics by Alberto Behar( )

5 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Do better international logistics reduce trade costs, raising a developing country's exports? Yes, but the magnitude of the effect depends on the country's size. The authors apply a gravity model that accounts for firm heterogeneity and multilateral resistance to a comprehensive new international logistics index. A one-standard deviation improvement in logistics is equivalent to a 14 percent reduction in distance. An average-sized developing country would raise exports by about 36 percent. Most countries are much smaller than average however, so the typical effect is 8 percent. This difference is chiefly due to multilateral resistance: it is bilateral trade costs relative to multilateral trade costs that matter for bilateral exports, and multilateral resistance is more important for small countries
