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 ▲]

Bien que placée dès sa préface sous le signe de la recherche du plaisir, l’Histoire de ma vie évoque très souvent le dégoût et lui assigne un rôle important dans l’intrigue, dans la caractérisation du protagoniste, dans ses réflexions sur l’amour ou dans la création d’effets comiques. Surtout perçu dans sa dimension physique et attribué à Casanova lui-même, le dégoût tend à être provoqué par des objets sexués, donc souvent par des femmes – les boutonneuses, les prostituées, les vieilles... Mais il n’est pas question de choquer le lecteur par des évocations dégoûtantes. Des normes sont maintenues : esthétiques (il s’agit de « bien peindre »), individuelles (Casanova a avoué ses gros goûts et son attrait pour le haut goût) et morales (mais il s’adresse à des initiés). L’absence et la disparition du dégoût sont également souvent notées, qu’elles renvoient à une stratégie d’évitement, à une incompatibilité du dégoût avec l’amour ou à une insensibilité protectrice. Il faut s’interroger aussi sur la suspension du dégoût chez le lecteur, pourtant confronté à des éléments racontés qu’il pourrait juger répugnants – n’est-ce pas là le signe que Casanova parvient à nous imposer sa vision ?

This paper deals with adnominal possession in Ancient Egyptian, focusing on constructions involving a pronominal possessor. In early Egyptian, a single construction is attested: substantive (possessee) + bound person marker (possessor). From the 6th Dynasty onwards, a new construction, which is built from a demonstrative determiner, appears: pAy + bound person marker (possessor) + substantive (possessee). In order to describe the gradual encroachment of the innovative possessive determiner pAy-f on the older construction with the possessive bound person marker, this study proposes a discourse-oriented analysis, using the notion of ‘subjective deixis.’ [less ▲]

This contribution focuses on modifying the composition and surface characteristics of powder metallurgy titanium substrates to improve their wear resistance and to reduce the surface Younǵs modulus, while maintaining the corrosion resistance and biocompatibility. The modification consists of Mo and TiN coatings produced by colloidal techniques which are deposited by electrophoretic deposition (EPD) or spraying onto green or sintered titanium substrates. The final surface structures are formed during a heat treatment, during which diffusion and consolidation of the layers take place. The surfaces are characterised by XRD, SEM, and micro-indentation; showing diffusion areas of between 40 and 85 microns with clear microstructural changes as well as higher hardness values. [less ▲]

In order to understand the dynamic of the (sub)urbanisation and so, to quantify the anthropogenic effects of the rapid growth of tropical cities, it is crucial to find and apply valuable methods. In this contribution, the transferability of the Rüdisser et al. (2012) «Distance to Nature» hemeroby assessment method to the landscape surrounding the city of Lubumbashi (DRC) is evaluated. That methodology has the advantage of taking structural connectivity into account by computing the distance to natural habitats. As it had never been applied to an African city before, some adjustments (fitting of the local land uses types into the hemeroby levels designed to Austria) and amendments (suppression of the final classification into hemeroby level simplification) are proposed. Moreover, an analysis of the decanal (2002-2013) hemeroby dynamics is presented. Results suggest that the Distance to Nature methodology is transferable but requires good field knowledge to define reference habitats and identify them in the Landsat classified images. There was a dramatic decrease of the «natural» and «near-natural» levels in the study extent during the studied period. In addition, 32% of the land underwent anthropisation increase, mostly around cities and following a ribbon development. [less ▲]

Current evidence continues to support the potential for bone turnover markers (BTM) to provide clinically useful information particularly for monitoring the efficacy of osteoporosis treatment. Many of the limitations identified earlier remain, principally in regard to the relationship between BTM and incident fractures. Important data are now available on reference interval values for CTX and PINP across a range of geographic regions and for individual clinical assays. An apparent lack of comparability between current clinical assays for CTX has become evident indicating the possible limitations of combining such data for meta-analyses. Harmonization of units for reporting serum/plasma CTX (ng/L) and PINP (mug/L) is recommended. The development of international collaborations continues with an important initiative to combine BTM results from clinical trials in osteoporosis in a meta-analysis and an assay harmonization program are likely to be beneficial. It is possible that knowledge derived from clinical studies can further enhance fracture risk estimation tools with inclusion of BTM together with other independent risk factors. Further data of the relationships between the clinical assays for CTX and PINP as well as physiological and pre-analytical factors contributing to variability in BTM concentrations are required.

As part of its Digital Single Market strategy, the European Commission envisages to take action aimed at eradicating the practice of blocking one’s website to persons established or residing in a particular EU Member State. To that extent, a 2015 pro-posal for a regulation on the portability of online streaming services and a 2016 pro-posal for a regulation on geo-blocking outside the audio-visual context have been presented, the scope of which will be analysed in this paper. Although the proposed Regulations would tackle topical problems in EU e commerce and thus offer a necessary step forward in enhancing cross-border trade in the European Union, their envisaged regulatory approach raises important con-cerns from enforcement and rules’ circumvention points of view. Taking stock of those two concerns, the paper will reflect upon ways to mitigate their detrimental effects. Arguing that the geo-blocking proposals already contain the basic tools for such mitigation, the paper advocates the adoption of a more stream-lined EU competition law and e-commerce regulation enforcement strategy, comple-mented by a “technologically more pro-active” EU law interpretation stance to e-commerce at the EU level.

Despite the common conception of the dorsal premotor cortex (PMd) as a single brain region, its diverse connectivity profiles and behavioral heterogeneity argue for a differentiated organization of the PMd. A previous study revealed that the right PMd is characterized by a rostro-caudal and a ventro-dorsal distinction dividing it into five subregions: rostral, central, caudal, ventral and dorsal. The present study assessed whether a similar organization is present in the left hemisphere, by capitalizing on a multimodal data-driven approach combining connectivity-based parcellation (CBP) based on meta-analytic modeling, resting- state functional connectivity, and probabilistic diffusion tractography. The resulting PMd modules were then characterized based on multimodal functional connectivity and a quantitative analysis of associated behavioral functions. Analyzing the clusters consistent across all modalities revealed an organization of the left PMd that mirrored its right counterpart to a large degree. Again, caudal, central and rostral modules reflected a cognitive- motor gradient and a premotor eye-field was found in the ventral part of the left PMd. In addition, a distinct module linked to abstract cognitive functions was observed in the rostro- ventral left PMd across all CBP modalities, implying greater differentiation of higher cognitive functions for the left than the right PMd.
