This paper presents Heidegger’s courses on religion (1920-21) as a criticism of axiological philosophy. It shows that the neokantian conception of “holy”, “history” and “divinity” involves the theoretical problem of the correlation between validity and reality. Reading this problem as the background of Heidegger’s own position reveals that : 1. the heideggerian conceptuality (world, significativity, historicity) makes sense in opposition to the axiological one (object, value, validity) ; 2. the methodological key of this opposition lies in the principle of “formal indication”, wich also governs Heidegger’s conference “Phenomenology and theology” (1927).

We discuss passive nonlinear energy pumping from a linear (main) mechanical structure to a weakly coupled, local, passive nonlinear energy sink (NES). We show that the NES can be designed to effectively absorb vibrational energy from the main structure in a one-way, irreversible fashion. We demonstrate the occurrence of pumping cascades, where an appropriately designed NES passively extracts energy sequentially from a number of modes of the main (linear) structure, interacting individually with each mode before moving to the next. Experimental results confirm our theoretical findings. The applications of the nonlinear energy pumping phenomenon to the problem of vibration and shock isolation will be discussed. [less ▲]

Modal analysis is extensively used for the analysis and design of structures. However, a major concern for structural dynamicists is that its validity is limited to systems showing a linear behaviour. New developments have thus been proposed in order to tackle nonlinear systems among which the theory based on the nonlinear normal modes is indubitably the most appealing. In this study, a different approach is adopted and the modes extracted from the proper orthogonal decomposition are considered for the characterization of nonlinear systems. [less ▲]

For a reliable on-line vibration monitoring of structures, it is necessary to have accurate sensor information. However, sensors may sometimes be faulty or may even become unavailable due to failure or maintenance activities. The problem of sensor validation is therefore a critical part or structural identification. The objective of the present study is to present a procedure based on principal component analysis, which is able to perform detection, isolation and reconstruction of a faulty sensor. Its e ciency is assessed using an experimental application. [less ▲]

The article examines the strengths and weaknesses of the concept of ‘flexicurity’, calling into question the tendency of the contemporary cultural imagination to regard flexibility as a framework for the expression of individual freedom. It then describes a range of possible policy options, in relation to the market, in the perspective of combining flexibility of labour and security of persons. Tree major options emerge: the ‘procedural’, the ‘neo-substantive’ and the ‘partnership’ options. As a conclusion, this article comes out in favour of different policy which would alter the framework for public intervention. It specially underlines the need for a ‘flexible’ and ‘decentred’ Welfare State, capable of supporting and encompassing forms of regulation emanating from civil society, in particular – but not exclusively – from the social partners.

This article aims to highlight the position occupied by compromise in the field of ethics. The argument is set out in two stages. First, the author attempts to clarify the contours of compromise by treating it as both a procedure or process of conflict resolution and a goal or ‘‘solution’’ to be achieved. In the second stage, he examines the distinction that could be made between ‘‘morality in compromise’’ and ‘‘morality of compromise’’, so as to measure its import and show how compromise not only contains elements specific to morality as a system but can also be a form of morality in itself.

The authors propose a reflection on the status of compromise in European sociological tradition, and more particularly in two classical authors, Durkheim and Weber, as well as in several contemporary authors who follow in Weber’s footsteps. After having noted the absence of any reference to the idea of compromise in Durkheim’s work, they posit that it is nevertheless possible to detect the presence of compromise as an implicit category in Weber’s writings, notably through his distinction between different ethics. While it is explicitly present in the contemporary authors examined, the concept is related to the different proceduralization theories found in Habermas, Crozier, Sainsaulieu and Reynaud. [less ▲]

L’objectif de la méthode d’inventaire « sylvicole » proposée est de fournir au gestionnaire un outil relativement simple et fiable qui lui permette d’acquérir une meilleure connaissance de l’état des peuplements feuillus irréguliers, en particulier après l’avènement de la « maladie du hêtre » survenue en 1999 en Wallonie. Celle-ci a causé d’importants dégâts au sein des hêtraies d’Ardenne et de Gaume, allant jusqu’à bouleverser profondément le faciès de certaines hêtraies. Dans ce contexte, l’accent a été mis sur l’évaluation des perspectives sylvicoles de chaque parcelle (ou compartiment), essentiellement avec un objectif d’estimation de l’état sanitaire des arbres et de planification d’interventions sylvicoles les mieux adaptées à l’état des peuplements. La méthode proposée est basée sur la réalisation d’un inventaire par échantillonnage permettant de collecter une information complète, très utile à une gestion sylvicole relativement fine des peuplements feuillus. Une procédure de cartographie thématique des différents paramètres relevés sur le terrain ou issus de requêtes de l’utilisateur a également été développée. Le présent document décrit les modalités de mise en oeuvre ainsi que les possibilités d’exploitation de la méthode d’inventaire proposée. [less ▲]

In the presence of a clinical acute monoarthritis, a differential diagnosis has to be made between septic arthritis, gout and diffuse chondrocalcinosis. Gout comes from a purine nucleotide metabolism disorder leading to serum urate level elevation. This hyperuricemia can lead to the deposition of monosodium urate crystals in the joints, causing acute attacks. After long-term evolution, others tissues as the kidneys can be involved: it is chronic gout. The definite diagnosis is based on the presence of monosodium urate crystals in the joint fluid. The diagnosis of gout should prompt a search for associated medical conditions that may affect both urate levels and longevity. These include alcoholism, various nephropathies, myeloproliferative disorders, and hypertension. [less ▲]

Familial Mediterranean Fever (FMF) is an hereditary disease that especially affects people living around the Mediterranean sea. It is characterized by recurring fever and abdominal pain, eventually associated with localised pleuritis, synovitis or skin inflammation. The most serious complication is amyloidosis, which can lead to terminal renal failure. The attacks and complications can be avoided by life long administration of colchicine. Two independent French and American teams discovered the gene responsible for the disease in 1997. It encodes for a protein named pyrin/marenostrin involved in the homeostasis the inflammatory mechanisms. The main mutations have been identified and are henceforth accessible for molecular screening. [less ▲]
