Abstract

To summarise our findings, the Hippocratic Epidemics case reports is an example of a text whose intended audiences, despite the ambiguities and historical
uncertainties about the texts’ composition and transmission, were very firmly
delimited as professional and medical. Such closure defines this phase of ancient
medicine as particularly territorial and “technical”, on the one hand – no literary
pretence, nor broader intellectual appeal of the kind shown by Galen is on the
horizon of these writers, nor any explicit attempt to win over lay audiences, at
least in the Epidemics.77 Also, it tells us something about the epistemology and
didactics at work in the Hippocratic handling of patients, which we can summarise
as follows: non-theoretical, observation-based and data-centred; self-standing,
i.e. not relying on a system of knowledge or a “syllabus” (compare Galen’s
frequent recommendation on which of his books one should read first, which are
for beginners, what should follow, etc.), but needing to “support itself” by insuring
the memorisation of the repertoires of observations, procedures, risks and
mistakes; lack of a synthesis of the empirical data, such as a form of diagnosis,
or of the “epistemological extension” that might turn the observed case into an
“experiment”.78 The Hippocratic use of individual evidence – the patient case –
remained in this early stage a communication of pure data. Individual memory,
in conclusion, the reception of an individual intellect – a future student, a training
doctor – characterises the audience of these texts, motivates and even determines,
concretely, their very existence.

Abstract

The purpose of the present study is to search for some theoretically satisfying way of describing the case system of Russian. The fundamental justification of this study that the problem of superficial cases, in spite of being one of the most researched areas of language, has not been given a satisfactory solution - so much so that even the problem of what to look for in an analysis of cases is completely open.

Abstract

This short monograph attempts an exploration of the legal treatment of evidence questions in Cyprus law. The first section of the study offers a comparative-law introduction to the legal system of Cyprus – a mixed legal system that in matters of civil litigation, including evidence, tends to strongly follow the English common law tradition (including the existence of an autonomous legal field of evidence law, that tends to be dominated by criminal evidence law. The second section presents the general principles underlying Cypriot civil procedure, including evidence. The sections that follow examine in more detail legal aspects involving civil evidence, especially how the basic types of evidence are treated in Cyprus law and how the processes for the taking of evidence are organized. The study also examines special questions including the legal treatment of illegally obtained evidence, legal costs and problems of language. The final section examines the cross-border dimensions of civil evidence-taking.

Abstract

After a brief historical introduction, the short monograph reviews the system of evidence in Hungarian civil proceedings, approaching the topic from the aspect of the basic principles. Following changes in the role of material truth, it presents alterations in the interpretation of and re-interpretation of the notion of the principle of free disposition of the parties. Then it deals with the following basic principles and their relation to evidence: principle of orality, principle of directness, principle of public hearing, principle of equality of arms, right to be heard, ensuring the use of one’s mother tongue, principle of procedural economy, the proper (bona fide) conduct of the lawsuit, principle of adversarial hearing, principle of the freedom of proof. After examining the questions of admissibility of evidence and burden of proof, it discusses particular means of evidence, the taking of evidence, the preliminary taking of evidence, costs of evidence, the question of unlawful evidence, and finally, the cross-border taking of evidence.

Abstract

This book contributes to the empirical literature on households’ participation in microfinancial services in developing countries. First, it estimates simultaneously the participation in microinsurance schemes and other financial services on household survey data from Ghana. Second, it analyzes the household’s cumulative participation in microfinancial services using household survey data from Sri Lanka. Next, the study focuses on the question whether household’s participation in micro life insurance in Sri Lanka is motivated by the desire to leave bequests. At last, it investigates different sequential steps of the household’s microinsurance participation decision and the joint analysis of micro life and health insurance enrolment in Sri Lanka.
