Abstract

Si rien ne paraît plus banal que l'acte de nommer, cette banalité ne saurait occulter la complexité du processus. Pris entre la dynamique des pratiques et les contraintes des formations discursives, entre l'expérience du monde et la construction des objets de discours, l'acte de nommer est à la fois éphémère et chargé de mémoire. Une façon d'appréhender l'acte de nommer dans ce qu'il a de complexe et d'original est de convoquer des approches différentes, telles l'analyse de discours, la praxé...

Abstract

Dietary fiber has long been recognized for its role in digestive function. However, currently there is scientific debate about definitions (descriptive and analytical), optimal intake, and essentiality in the human diet. Dietary fiber is a key substrate for bacterial metabolism in the colon, which makes research on dietary fiber an important issue that complements current interest in the gut microbiota. Dietary fiber is also important for prevention and management of cardiovascular disease, diabetes, obesity, and other chronic diseases. This Special Issue will highlight recent research on dietary fiber content in foods and function in human health, ranging from digestive function to chronic disease prevention and management.

Abstract

Cyberbullying has emerged as a major issue across societies and for schools, parents, children, and national governments (see Smith and Steffgen, 2013). Despite some similarities with traditional, or face-to-face (f2f) bullying (Mc Guckin, Cummins and Lewis, 2010), there is sufficient difference to warrant this contemporary and detailed examination of the issues related to cyberbullying—from a perspective that draws upon the most pertinent research and informed opinion from key researchers and thinkers from across the globe. The initial and pioneering knowledge about cyberbullying has now moved to a newer, more mature position that has been able to delineate the nuances associated with the issue, and importantly, yield robust insights for those involved in, or tasked to deal with, cyberbullying.This Special Issue brings together a collection of papers that represents the most up-to-date perspectives and evidence from across the globe. Collectively, these papers demonstrate how scholars and policy makers, from disparate disciplinary or stakeholder starting points, are progressing in their understanding of each other’s language and requirements—thus facilitating the important move towards a more coherent and understandable agenda that seeks to minimize the potential risks to children and young people, understand the relationships between involvement in cyberbullying and associated biopsychosocial factors, in order to implement integrated and evidence-informed intervention and prevention programmes.

Abstract

Le constat n'étonnera personne : les faits, les manifestations ou les phénomènes religieux attirent aujourd'hui l'attention, à des degrés divers. Face à la question de savoir ce que les religions viennent faire dans la société et la culture, on dispose d'un large éventail d'analyses et de réponses. Toutefois, en centrant ainsi l'intérêt sur ce que les religions font, une autre question est souvent laissée dans l'ombre : celle de savoir ce qui fait la religion, ou encore Qu'est-ce que la religion ? Les contributions rassemblées dans ce recueil n'entendent pas traiter la question de manière abstraite, ni trancher l'épineux problème d'une définition théorique de la religion. Il s'agit plutôt de prêter attention à ce que la religion donne à entendre, quand on l'interroge sur ce qui la fonde et la constitue, dans le champ de la conscience et de la pensée humaines, dans celui des rapports sociaux, et face aux pôles de sens et de vérité qui aimantent les traditions religieuses et leurs divers itinéraires. La théologie chrétienne se doit aujourd'hui de reprendre ce questionnement, pour envisager comment le christianisme se comprend lui-même comme religion, en ayant dépassé l'opposition duelle entre foi et religion. L'interlocution avec d'autres religions se tient certainement au cœur de cette tâche. Mais en même temps, ce questionnement appelle aujourd'hui le christianisme à revoir ses propres bases anthropologiques, où ce qui fait la religion prend naissance.

Abstract

Social Entrepreneurship ist ein weltweites, aktuelles Phänomen ohne einheitliche Definition. Die Motivation des Unternehmers macht den Unterschied zwischen sozial orientierten und gewinnorientierten Unternehmen. Gesellschaftliche Ziele werden direkt durch die wirtschaftliche Tätigkeit erreicht (im Unterschied zu Konzepten wie CSR). Gewinn ist Mittel zur nachhaltigen Zielerreichung. Mit realen Beispielen und dem Businessplankonzept für soziale Geschäftsideen gibt das Buch konkrete Hilfestellung.

Abstract

This special issue provides a collection of 15 papers with modern theories and applications for circular economy, engineering projects, entrepreneurship models, and investor decisions. After the commencing review on Occupational Health and Safety Management-Systems Standards, follow papers which can be classified into four categories which cover the overall scope of special issue. The first category includes papers regarding the micro-level of circular economy. This means case studies in firm-level which implement different techniques to achieve sustainable development and circular economy goals. The findings reveal interesting achievements which are associated with cultural characteristics of the countries these case studies have been conducted. The second category of papers refers to the meso-level of circular economy where firms cooperate with each other by exchanging byproducts and organizing common operational procedures and routines to address environmental problems. The findings suggest assessment information technology tools to support industrial symbiosis among European firms. The next body of literature encompasses macro-level where circular economy techniques are implemented at a country level. Findings suggest methodologies for implementing and tracking circular economy in cities. Finally, a number of papers are included that focus on advanced engineering techniques. These techniques are useful tools for achieving circular economy and sustainability.
