Trying to describe polytheism is a difficult enterprise because the whole system can be seen as a complex structure, each element of which (a deity with its proper name) is both itself a complex set of prerogatives, and at the same time, must be considered in concert with the other elements. After a brief historiographical overview, this paper focuses on the first aspect by using the notion of ‘network’ as a metaphor to refer to the complexity of the ancient Greek gods. It provides two case studies, of the Moirai and the goddess Hera. The paper concludes that polytheism can be described if one conceptualises the complexity of the gods—their unity and diversity—together at every level (Panhellenic and local, cult and myths, and so on).

Besides being known for population overcrowding, prison staff strikes, and prisoner suicides or escapes, which are frequently reported by the press, prison might also be a place for rare innovative projects. One such project can be seen in a penitentiary policy initiated in Belgium in 2000 aimed at re-shaping the culture of detention towards a culture of ‘restorative justice’. What can be said of this attempt at introducing the concepts of victim, restoration, responsibilization, sensitizing and awareness within prison walls? The present article proposes an illustrative and interpretive account of this prison policy. Rather than restoring the broken victim-offender relationship, its implementation has something to do with detainees working on their ‘self’. [less ▲]

This paper offers a critical discussion of the so-called argument from the transparency of experience. We recall of the argument against the historical background of phenomenal anti-dualism (Natorp, Wundt, Russell) and identify three difficulties of it. Eventually, we propose an alternative view, which we call phenomenological dualism. On the proposed view, there is a sense in which our mental states may be said to appear to us, hence there is a sense to say that there are mental phenomena. [less ▲]

Anthocyanins are colorants which provide most of the blue, red and violet colours in numerous plants and fruits. Because of their great sensitivity to the slightest changes in pH and their instability in ordinary daylight, it is generally thought that these colorants were used only to dye everyday clothes in a domestic context. However, medieval artists’ recipe books not only describe these elusive substances, but also indicate their use in illumination. This is notably the case for the texts of the so-called ‘Strasbourg Tradition’, written in the south of Germany and the north of France between 1400 and 1560, and partly composed from an older Alsatian treatise on illumination. Departing from these sources, this paper details the methods employed to prepare these colorants and (re)evaluates their diverse uses in painting and illuminating techniques. This technical data subsequently served as a basis upon which to make reconstructions. Finally, an attempt to correlate the information provided by these recipe books with specific artistic practices was carried out by collating the descriptions with the results of analyses from contemporary illuminations by an Alsatian workshop active in the same geographical area.

The paper introduces an approach to investigate voltage sags, which are caused by large generator rotor swings following a transient disturbance. Therefore, the method exploits sensitivities derived from the algebraic network equations. These provide information on the impact of a generator on the voltage magnitude at a load bus and the effect of load variation on the generator’s power injection. It is shown that these sensitivities give valuable information to identify critical generator-load pairs and locations for applying preventive control measures. [less ▲]

One theoretical recommendation to develop sustainable rural tourism is to base its development on local resources. This should embed the tourist activity into the local society, avoid easy relocalization of investment, and help to brand the destination. The Belgian Ardennes is a proximate recreational location for Dutch people. The paper lists the local resources that attract Dutch tourists and the ways in which regional and local authorities deal with this tourist development. Based on key actor interviews and in depth analysis of the promotional material produced both by authorities and commercial companies, the paper underlines the hotchpotch of ways used in selling and consuming the Ardennes. Due to the lack of local entrepreneurship and because the Dutch tourism enterprises have better knowledge of the Dutch market, these enterprises control a huge share of tourism activities in the Ardennes. These Dutch investments change the destination as well as the local identity. Initially, Dutch companies developed a form of tourism based on nature and the rural landscape, but they diversified their activities into non land based tourism (not involving the use of land as in agriculture hors sol) and the ‘disneyfication’ of places. This Belgian case study follows more or less the well known ‘tourist destination life cycle model’, but the originality of the paper is to stress the difficulties posed for authorities to regulate tourism development and to maintain the quality of the destination.

Warm (1989) established the equivalence between the so-called Jeffreys modal and the weighted likelihood estimators of proficiency level with some dichotomous item response models. The purpose of this note is to extend this result to polytomous item response models. First, a general condition is derived to ensure the perfect equivalence between these two estimators. Second, it is shown that this condition is fulfilled by two broad classes of polytomous models including, among others, the partial credit, rating scale, graded response and nominal response models.

Les gammapathies monoclonales de signification indéterminée (GMSI) sont fréquentes dans la population générale. Leur potentiel évolutif malin impose une surveillance clinique régulière et prolongée. Cependant, les GMSI forment un groupe très hétérogène et tous les patients n’ont pas le même risque de transformation maligne. Plusieurs critères biologiques simples, disponibles en routine ont été identifiés comme facteurs prédictifs de la transformation. Les scores prédictifs de transformation maligne combinant plusieurs de ces facteurs permettront probablement la classification des patients en fonction de leur risque évolutif. La prise en charge pourra ainsi être adaptée au risque individuel de chaque patient [less ▲]
