Constitutive Explanations as a Methodological Framework for Integrating Thermodynamics and Economics

Carsten Herrmann-Pillath
2015 Entropy  
The common approach to integrating thermodynamics and economics is subsuming thermodynamic aspects among the set of constraints under which economic activity takes place.  ...  "Constitutive explanations" eschew the covering law approach to scientific explanation and concentrate on the identification of multi-level architectures of causal mechanisms that generate phenomena.  ...  Conflicts of Interest: The author declares no conflict of interest.  ...

The Neumann-Morgenstern Project – Game Theory as a Formal Language for the Social Sciences [chapter]

Hardy Hanappi
2013 Game Theory Relaunched  
In doing so it can be shown that the development of algorithmically oriented evolutionary economics (e.g. agent-based simulation) can play an important role to approach the Neumann-Morgenstern project.  ...  Knowing where to fight and how to position the own warriors is based on the anticipation of the moves of the approaching enemy.  ...

Global Constraints within the Developmental Program of the Drosophila Wing

Vasyl Alba, James Carthew, Richard W Carthew, Madhav Mani
2021 eLife  
Our results provide quantitative insights into the nature of robustness in complex forms while yet accommodating the potential for evolutionary variations.  ...  Remarkably, the phenotypic variants can be described by a single integrated mode that corresponds to a non-intuitive combination of structural variations across the wing.  ...  This work was supported in part by NSF grant DMS-1547394 (JEC), NSF (1764421, MM and RWC), and the Simons Foundation (597491, MM and RWC). MM is a Simons Foundation Investigator.  ...

Pattern of global cyber war and crime: A conceptual framework

Nir Kshetri
2005 Journal of International Management  
Cyber wars and crimes are also functions of the stocks of hacking skills relative to the availability of economic opportunities.  ...  We found that countries across the world differ in terms of regulative, normative and cognitive legitimacy to different types of web attacks.  ...  Two possible approaches can be employed for this purpose. The first approach entails testing the model based on country-level data.  ...

Thoughts on the Future of Higher Education in the UK: A Personal View with a Historical Context

Jonathan Blackledge
2021 Education Sciences  
It explores the underlying parallels between the current situation and certain historical events that catalysed the development of a new approach to HE in the past, which is very relevant today.  ...  The key to this is the emphasis that the UK government is now placing on funding new 'Technological Colleges', in which students are trained by experts from the industry on a contractual basis, rather  ...  In other words, the approach considered by the Americans was not to confront the problem everywhere but to go around the problem and focus on the key objectives that enabled dominance of the air to determine  ...

Culture & Arts as Knowledge Resources Towards Sustainability for Identity of Nations and Cognitive Richness of Human Being

Luciano Pilotti, Marina Rinaldin
2004 Social Science Research Network  
Both hypotheses and the results depend on the specific perspective from which authors have analyzed the problem.  ...  The conventional distinction between growth and development leads to different approaches of which we analyses some details.  ...  The alternative approach to the problem of sustainable economic development shifts this perspective, as it aims to take the issue of sustainability beyond the objective of allocative efficiency.  ...
