Ce chapitre montre la centralité de l'émotion dans la théorie sociale de Bergson, au-delà de sa théorie psychologique. L'émotion n'est cependant pas seulement un phénomène sociologique, logé au fond des institutions sociales et morales ; en associant l'émotion, non au registre de la sensibilité passive, mais à celui d'une sensibilité active et créatrice, il suggère qu'elle est à la source des grandes transformations morales sans lesquelles la vie humaine ne connaîtrait pas de temporalité historique à proprement parler.

If this conference proposes to explore the singular and minor expressions of architectural theory, it could at first seem strange to propose here a paper about the so-called derridean years of architecture. Rather, the vast body of literature produced on this specific episode argues that the encounter of architectural discourses with derridean deconstruction played a major role into the implementation of "the gilded age of theory" (Mallgrave, Goodman, 2011). But such an "age" needs now to be redefined in regard with its own cultural boundaries. What the decon has produced in the Anglo-American field of architectural theory is not what the deconstruction has produced on the French-speaking part of the debate (following the argument of Cusset, 2005). In France, the question of the effects of the Derrida's philosophy on the contemporary architectural discourses and practices still causes a kind of discomfort. "As if" no one could face with what this disciplinary cross-over of the mid-eighties both has produced and has not succeeded in producing; "as if", failure or not, this experimental encounter could had been no effects or consequences on the theories and practices which succeeded it. From one cultural context to another, we have two different versions of a same history. Different but not unrelated. The proposition is here to invest the productive gap between these overlapped versions, in order to question their respective modes of construction but also to re-open their ways of being transmitted. From an original translation of Derrida's Haunt (Wigley, 1993) in French, I would present a methodological approach (Despret, 2001) which attempts to create the conditions of a renewed relation between different versions of what the deconstruction could have produced in architecture. The exercise of the translation is seen as a way to question the co-existence of these different possible versions; a way to slow down the multiple gestures which hastily sweep the hesitations in the shared course of their history.

Freeplay is a significant source of nonlinearity in aeroelastic systems and is strictly regulated by airworthiness authorities. It splits the phase plane of such systems into three piecewise linear subdomains. Depending on the location of the freeplay, limit cycle oscillations can result that span either two or three of these subdomains. The purpose of this work is to demonstrate the existence of two-domain cycles both theoretically and experimentally. A simple aeroelastic system with pitch, plunge and control deflection degrees of freedom is investigated in the presence of freeplay in pitch. It is shown that two-domain and three-domain cycles can result from a grazing bifurcation and propagate in the decreasing airspeed direction. Close to the bifurcation, the two limit cycle branches interact with each other and aperiodic oscillations ensue. Equivalent linearization is used to derive the conditions of existence of each type of limit cycle and to predict their amplitudes and frequencies. Comparisons with measurements from wind tunnel experiments demonstrate that the theory describes these phenomena with accuracy. [less ▲]

The present paper provides an analysis and a long-term forecasting scheme of the Oceanic Niño Index (ONI) using the continuous wavelet transform. First, it appears that oscillatory components with main periods of about 17, 31, 43, 61 and 140 months govern most of the variability of the signal, which is consistent with previous works. Then, this information enables us to derive a simple algorithm to model and forecast ONI. The model is based on the observation that the modes extracted from the signal are generally phased with positive or negative anomalies of ONI (El Niño and La Niña events). Such a feature is exploited to generate locally stationary curves that mimic this behavior and which can be easily extrapolated to form a basic forecast. The wavelet transform is then used again to smooth out the process and finalize the predictions. The skills of the technique described in this paper are assessed through retroactive forecasts of past El Niño and La Niña events and via classic indicators computed as functions of the lead time. The main asset of the proposed model resides in its long-lead prediction skills. Consequently, this approach should prove helpful as a complement to other models for estimating the long-term trends of ONI. [less ▲]

Changes of atmospheric methane total columns (CH4/ since 2005 have been evaluated using Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) solar observations carried out at 10 ground-based sites, affiliated to the Network for Detection of Atmospheric Composition Change (NDACC). From this, we find an increase of atmospheric methane total columns of 0.31±0.03 %/year (2-sigma level of uncertainty) for the 2005–2014 period. Comparisons with in situ methane measurements at both local and global scales show good 10 agreement. We used the GEOS-Chem chemical transport model tagged simulation, which accounts for the contribution of each emission source and one sink in the total methane, simulated over 2005–2012. After regridding according to NDACC vertical layering using a conservative 15 regridding scheme and smoothing by convolving with respective FTIR seasonal averaging kernels, the GEOS-Chem simulation shows an increase of atmospheric methane total columns of 0.35±0.03 %/year between 2005 and 2012, which is in agreement with NDACC measurements over the same time period (0.30±0.04 %/year, averaged over 10 stations). Analysis of the GEOS-Chem-tagged simulation allows us to quantify the contribution of each tracer to the global methane change since 2005. We find that natural sources such as wetlands and biomass burning contribute to the interannual variability of methane. However, anthropogenic emissions, such as coal mining, and gas and oil transport and exploration, which are mainly emitted in the Northern Hemisphere and act as secondary contributors to the global budget of methane, have played a major role in the increase of atmospheric methane observed since 2005. Based on the GEOS-Chem-tagged simulation, we discuss possible cause(s) for the increase of methane since 2005, which is still unexplained. [less ▲]

Purpose. To describe the gender, age, occupational status and diagnosis of dysphonic patients. Method. We retrospectively analyzed the medical records of 1079 patients examined at the Voice clinic of the University hospital of Liège in French-speaking Belgium. Results. Overall, seven out of 10 patients who attended the voice clinic for dysphonia were females. The patients’ ages ranged from 4 to 93 (mean=43.5). Females predominantly consulted at the age of 54 and males at the age of 9. Regarding the occupational status, workers represented more than half of our patients (53%), while 11.2% were unemployed, 15.4% were students, and 19.9% were retired. Regarding the diagnoses of the 1079 patients, nodules were the most common pathologies (n=182, 16.9% of the patients), prevailing in females (n=142, 18.8% of the females), encountered in 16.8% of the workers and 42.8% of the students consulting the voice clinic. Following nodules, laryngeal mobility disorders were diagnosed in 16.4% of the patients (n=177), mainly females (n=115), and was the most frequent diagnosis in retirees (n=75, 34.9%). Conclusions. The majority of the patients consulting the voice clinic for dysphonia were adult females, in their workforce, diagnosed with vocal nodules. The identification of the patients’ characteristics and diagnoses is important to develop treatments and prevention of dysphonia, estimate their costs, and allow comparisons across referral centers.

Tropical forests are important providers of natural resources and ecosystem services but their ecological functions are facing increasing human pressure, linked to economic development. The preservation of tropical forest ecosystems is interrelated with effective land use planning and identification of priority areas for conservation. Initially defined by Greenpeace and the World Resources Institute (WRI) in 2000, Intact Forest Landscapes (IFLs) are large areas of forest minimally impacted by human activities. IFLs were identified by mapping industrial activities, road networks and infrastructure using remote sensing. Since 2014, when IFLs were recognized and adopted by the certification scheme Forest Stewardship Council (FSC), the IFLs have become integrated into forest management policies. In order to trace the history and evaluate the applicability of IFLs for forest management policy in the Central African context, we searched for documents related to the IFL method, and previous similar concepts. The IFL method is simple and cost-effective and enables the monitoring of forest degradation at a global scale. However, the approach mainly considers forest cover and is imprecise at the local scale. For example, hunting, one of the main threats faced by Central African ecosystems, cannot be detected by satellite imagery and is therefore disregarded in IFL identification processes. In contrast, there are other considered anthropogenic activities, such as reduced-impact selective logging, which may be compatible with forest ecosystem conservation. To better tailor the IFL approach to Central African forests, we recommend (i) the consideration of wildlife communities distribution in the analysis of disturbance, (ii) a thorough evaluation of the impacts of different human activities on forest ecosystems, and (iii) the integration of local stakeholders and governments in the design of land management strategies devised to address social, economic and environmental needs.
