The objective of this study is to present a theoretical paper about a clinical issue. Our aim is to propose some clinical and semiological considerations for a psychopathological conception of psychopathy. We will discuss several major theoretical works dedicated to this nosographic entity (mainly those of Schneider, Cleckley and Hare). We will also examine a significant issue raised by Cooke et al., namely whether psychopathic functioning is consistently related to antisocial behavior. This theoretical essay is informed by clinical situations (involving psychopaths who were interviewed in prison or in forensic centers). The method applied a phenomenological psychopathology analysis to the clinical material. We first compare Binswanger’s conception of mania with psychopathic functioning. Patients’ behavior is similar but there is a difference related to the dialectic between the ego and the alter ego. A patient with mania has a fundamental crisis of the ego, which a psychopath does not have. A second finding of our investigations concerns emotions and the adaptive dimension of the psychopathic disorder. An epistemological discussion of the concept of emotions reveals that psychopaths are competent in the management of emotional stimuli, which confers a psychological advantage upon them. [less ▲]

This study examines the share and allocation of household expenditure in health financing, as presented by the National Health Account figures. These figures are based on a national survey carried out in 2010 among 11,000 households, 2,200 people living with HIV/AIDS, 183 institutions, 42 mutual funds, 18 companies and using the balance sheets of 1,300 companies. Total household health expenditure per capita per year amounted to U.S. $ 4.50. Routine health expenditure is covered by the households (40%) and international cooperation (45%) through direct payment without cost sharing (93.7%). A hospital stay is warranted in case of nutritional deficiencies (34%), malaria (12%) and mental disorders (10%). 82% of outpatient care is related to malaria (71%) and mental disorders (12.5 %). In conclusion, the observation that 71.58% of hospitals expenditure, 96.49% of ambulatory care centres expenditure, 98.48% of medical and diagnosis laboratories expenditure, 72.42% of pharmacies expenditures come from households’ out of pocket expenses calls for the establishment of solidarity mechanisms in the health sector. Outpatient malaria care consumes as much as 71% of household expenditure, and we therefore need to strengthen prevention, treatment and focus on monitoring progress. The fact that nutritional deficiencies are the leading cause of people seeking hospital care suggests that efforts are needed to improve their living conditions of households. Mental disorders are the third leading cause of hospital recourse and this pathology should therefore be included in the minimum and supplementary package of activities. [less ▲]

This text focuses on how teachers and other institutional actors (such as headmasters, psychologists and social workers) offer guidance to pupils in secondary schools. It stresses the epistemological and empirical challenges inherent in a study of decisionmaking in school guidance as used by teachers, based on field theory. The text begins with a presentation of several sociological studies of how teachers construct their judgments about pupils. It emphasizes the strength of the concept of field as a key to understanding the role played by teachers in the formal process of educational (school) guidance, specifically in the case of the French "Grandes Ecoles". This section goes on to show that, with the weakening of the autonomy of (the) educational institutions, (the) French sociology of education moved away from (the) Bourdieu’s perspective, (and) to focus(ed) on the moral pluralism inherent in education and the ethical tensions that institutional actors face. The second part of the text discusses the findings of socioanthropological fieldwork undertaken in secondary schools in the French Community of Belgium. This section argues that the dynamics of judgments made by teachers today canbest be understood through their structural linkages with the structure of the field of secondary education. [less ▲]

In the last three decades, the development of the artisanal and small-scale mining (ASM) sector has been increasing in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), bringing more and more urban families into this flourishing business sector, and among them, children. At first glance, one could see children in the mining sector mainly as victims entangled in the flows of raw materials of unbridled capitalism. But this paper aims to look at the often unconceivable, and as a result neglected, social agency of children even when they are involved in stigmatized and prohibited types of child labour. To do so, it relies on the results of a socio-anthropological collective research project on children’s mining activities which was carried out in a small locality called La Ruashi in the city of Lubumbashi (Province of Katanga). The article aims to provide a more comprehensive understanding of what is often normatively only labelled as ‘child labour’ by looking at different spheres of social relations within which children are embedded. Examining the set of social interactions that children have with their families, the broader community and their ‘peers’, several ‘family portraits’ are offered, highlighting a heterogeneity of social interpretations regarding this ‘new’ form of child work. It will be shown that for families from middle-class background, this kind of work is often socially disruptive, at the forefront of inter-generational conflict. As for families from lower classes, social changes induced by children’s mining activities are often better incorporated into the family habitus. Common social changes encountered in all families irrespective of class belonging will also be portrayed, showing the transversal societal impact these ‘new’ forms of child economic activities can provoke at a micro level.

Discours d’escorte visant à encourager la lecture d’un texte et à orienter la modalité de cette lecture, la préface a fait l’objet d’approches structurelles et de réflexions inscrites dans une perspective synchronique. Ce volume collectif, fondé sur des études variées — du point de vue chronologique, géographique et en ce qui concerne la nature même des objets — mais complémentaires, propose de prolonger cette réflexion, en questionnant la manière dont cet objet préfaciel polymorphe, tout en étant soumis à des invariants structurels dont il se plait à éprouver les limites, développe des poétiques susceptibles d’évoluer selon les époques, engage des effets posturaux et se fonde sur des jeux de sociabilité.

Novel organocobalt complexes featuring weak C–CoL2 bonds (L = acetylacetonate) are prepared and used as sources of halomethyl radicals. They permit the precision synthesis of a-halide functionalized and telechelic polymers in organic media or in water. Substitution of halide by azide allows derivatization of polymers using the CuAAC click reaction. [less ▲]

Context. Currently, seismic modelling is one of the best ways of building accurate stellar models, thereby providing accurate ages. However, current methods are affected by simplifying assumptions concerning stellar mixing processes. In this context, providing new structural indicators that are less model-dependent and more sensitive to mixing processes is crucial. Aims. We wish to build a new indicator for core conditions (i.e. mixing processes and evolutionary stage) on the main sequence. This indicator tu should be more sensitive to structural differences and applicable to older stars than the indicator t presented in a previous paper. We also wish to analyse the importance of the number and type of modes for the inversion, as well as the impact of various constraints and levels of accuracy in the forward modelling process that is used to obtain reference models for the inversion. Methods. First, we present a method of obtaining new structural kernels in the context of asteroseismology. We then use these new kernels to build a new indicator of central conditions in stars, denoted tu, and test it for various effects including atomic diffusion, various initial helium abundances, and various metallicities, following the seismic inversion method presented in our previous paper. We then study the indicator’s accuracy for seven different pulsation spectra including those of 16CygA and 16CygB and analyse how it depends on the reference model by using different constraints and levels of accuracy for its selection Results. We observe that the inversion of the new indicator tu using the SOLA method provides a good diagnostic for additional mixing processes in central regions of stars. Its sensitivity allows us to test for diffusive processes and chemical composition mismatch. We also observe that using modes of degree 3 can improve the accuracy of the results, as well as using modes of low radial [less ▲]
