This paper aims at analysing the work of prison management teams. Working in organizations that are mainly "auto-regulated" by prison guards, governors’ teams have to cope, for the last fifteen years, with a heightened control exercised by the central administration. This “regulation of control” (Reynaud, 1988) is inter alia justified by the endemic phenomenon of overcrowding and the increasing interdependency between prisons and their environment. Despite the constraints implied by these shifts, prison governors preserve some autonomy through two types of deliberative practice allowing them to influence - marginally and ethically – prison organizations and policies. The first one, called practical wisdom or prudence (Champy, 2012), lies in the subtle bypass of the rules in uncertain situations; the second one, called cunning, or ruse (Lécu, 2013), consists in denouncing the hypocrisy of some political discourses with the help of some external partners.

Adhesion is an important phenomenon in the context of MEMS for which the surface forces become dominant in comparison with the body forces. Because the magnitudes of the adhesive forces strongly depend on the surface interaction distances, which in turn evolve with the roughness of the contacting surfaces, the adhesive forces cannot be determined in a deterministic way. To quantify the uncertainties on the structural stiction behavior of a MEMS, this work proposes a “stochastic multi-scale methodology”. The key ingredient of the method is the evaluation of the random meso-scale apparent contact forces, which homogenize the effect of the nano-scale roughness and are integrated into a numerical model of the studied structure as a random contact law. To obtain the probabilistic behavior at the structural MEMS scale, a direct method needs to evaluate explicitly the meso-scale apparent contact forces in a concurrent way with the stochastic multi-scale approach. To reduce the computational cost, a stochastic model is constructed to generate the random meso-scale apparent contact forces. To this end, the apparent contact forces are parameterized by a vector of parameters before applying a polynomial chaos expansion in order to construct a mathematical model representing the probability of the random parameters vector. The problem of micro-beam stiction is then studied in a probabilistic way. [less ▲]

Antarctic soils are known to be oligotrophic and of having low buffering capacities. It is expected that this is particularly the case for inland high altitude regions. We hypothesized that the bedrock type and the presence of macrobiota in these soils enforce a high selective pressure on their bacterial communities. To test this, we analysed the bacterial community structure in 52 soil samples from the western Sør Rondane Mountains (Dronning Maud Land, East Antarctica) using the Illumina MiSeq platform in combination with ARISA fingerprinting. The samples were taken along broad environmental gradients in an area covering nearly 1000 km². Ordination and variation partitioning analyses revealed that the total organic carbon content was the most significant variable in structuring the bacterial communities, followed by pH, electric conductivity, bedrock type and the moisture content, while spatial distance was of relatively minor importance. Acidobacteria (Chloracidobacteria) and Actinobacteria (Actinomycetales) dominated gneiss derived mineral soil samples, while Proteobacteria (Sphingomonadaceae), Cyanobacteria, Armatimonadetes and candidate division FBP dominated soil samples with a high total organic carbon content that were mainly situated on granite derived bedrock.

The bacterial and microeukaryotic biodiversity was studied using pyrosequencing analysis on a 454 GS 29 FLX+ platform of partial SSU rRNA genes in terrestrial and aquatic habitats of the Sør Rondane Mountains, 30 including soils, on mosses, endolithic communities, cryoconite holes, and supraglacial and subglacial 31 meltwater lenses. This inventory was complemented with Denaturing Gradient Gel Electrophoresis targeting 32 Chlorophyta and Cyanobacteria. OTUs belonging to the Rotifera, Chlorophyta, Tardigrada, Ciliophora, 33 Cercozoa, Fungi, Bryophyta, Bacillariophyta, Collembola and Nematoda were present with a relative 34 abundance of at least 0.1% in the eukaryotic communities. Cyanobacteria, Proteobacteria, Bacteroidetes, 35 Acidobacteria, FBP, and Actinobacteria were the most abundant bacterial phyla. Multivariate analyses of the 36 pyrosequencing data revealed a general lack of differentiation of both eukaryotes and prokaryotes according 37 to habitat type. However, the bacterial community structure in the aquatic habitats was dominated by the 38 filamentous cyanobacteria Leptolyngbya and appeared to be significantly different compared with those in 39 dry soils, on mosses, and in endolithic habitats. A striking feature in all datasets was the detection of a 40 relatively large amount of sequences new to science, which underscores the need for additional biodiversity 41 assessments in Antarctic inland locations.

Partant de quelques textes dans lesquels S. Kracauer traite du rapport entre montage et réel, cet article tente de préciser et de problématiser l’ambivalence de Kracauer à l’égard de l’outil « montage », notamment dans le champ cinématographique, en ouvrant la réflexion par cette double question : comment définir un « mauvais usage » du montage et, à l’opposé, comment peuvent se mettre en place les conditions d’un « bon usage » du montage selon Kracauer ? Pour y répondre, les auteurs identifient d'abord, dans l’œuvre de Kracauer, les éléments explicites et implicites (montage textuel) qui permettent de saisir au plus près ce que serait, selon le philosophe et sociologue, le principe de réalité. Ensuite, une œuvre photographique, contemporaine des quelques textes évoqués, Menschen des 20. Jahrhunderts d’August Sander, permet de mieux circonscrire les possibles concrétisations de cette pensée en la mettant à l’épreuve d’une réalisation en images et en montage. [less ▲]

J'examine ici l’approche cartésiano-brentanienne de la conscience. Cette approche comporte une thèse psychologique ("tout ce qui est mental est conscient") et une double thèse épistémologique ("toute conscience interne est évidente"/'aucune perception externe n'est évidente"). On a souvent considéré que ces thèses se heurtaient à d’imposantes difficultés et rendaient l’approche cartésiano-brentanienne de la conscience particulièrement problématique. Contre ces critiques, certains commentateurs ont récemment suggéré qu’on pouvait toutefois donner un sens acceptable à la thèse psychologique. Je voudrais suggérer, pour ma part, qu’on peut aussi donner un sens acceptable à la double thèse épistémologique. Dans la section 2, je reconstruit la position cartésiano-brentanienne en termes d'asymétrie épistémique entre perception interne et perception externe. Dans les sections 3 et 4, je discute les objections soulevées par Husserl et par Ryle, et je suggère que la théorie brentaniexnne permet de réfuter ces objections. [less ▲]

Le thème de la conscience a connu un regain d’intérêt spectaculaire, ces dernières années, chez les philosophes et les scientifiques. Des théories nouvelles ont vu le jour dans l’espoir de rendre compte de « l’effet que cela fait », par exemple, de tomber amoureux, de se faire mal ou de… mordre dans un citron. Contrairement à une conception populaire, de nombreux chercheurs ont suggéré que ressentir quelque chose équivalait en réalité à se représenter quelque chose. L’ouvrage "Conscience et représentation. Introduction aux théories représentationnelles de l’esprit" (Paris, Vrin, 2016) dresse un état des lieux des controverses liées à cette question. [less ▲]

The classical Brown-Peterson task is generally supposed to assess working memory capacities. To date, however, the construct validity of the task remains mostly unexamined. In this context, the aim of the present study was to demonstrate the convergent and the divergent validity as well as the clinical and the developmental sensitivity of a computerized version of the Brown-Peterson test. A group of 726 French-speaking participants aged from 18 to 86 years and 47 patients who had sustained a traumatic brain injury (TBI) were administered the Brown-Peterson task and various other cognitive tasks assessing executive functioning, verbal and visual memory, or processing speed. The correlation analyses revealed the good convergent of the task, which was shown to be able to distinguish between participants with TBI and control participants. We found an effect of age and education level on the different scores recorded for the Brown-Peterson test. Normative data taking into account the influence of the latter variables were thus provided. On the whole, these findings seem to confirm the validity of the Brown-Peterson task as a tool to assess working memory abilities. [less ▲]
