Abstract

The Acute-Care Nurse Practitioner is based on in-depth interviews with twenty-six nurse practitioners working in acute-care settings within tertiary-care institutions all across Canada. Employing a hermeneutic approach, Rashotte explores the perspectives from which NPs view their reality as they undergo a transformational journey of becoming a journey that is directed both outward, into the world, and inward, into the self. We learn how, in their struggle to engage in a meaningful practice that fulfills their goals as nurses, their purpose was hindered or achieved. In large part, the story unfolds in the voices of the NPs themselves, but their words are complemented by descriptive passages and excerpts of poetry that construct an animated and powerful commentary on their journey.

Abstract

Michel Seymour a choisi la philosophie analytique comme champ de recherche. La philosophie analytique est un courant de pensée dominé par les intellectuels vivant dans les pays anglo-saxons. Les résultats des recherches effectuées dans ce domaine sont publiés généralement en anglais, et les auteurs qui contribuent à ce courant de pensée se servent du modèle de la science pour donner un sens à leur propre activité philosophique. Le courant dominant y est en outre d’inspiration individualiste....

Abstract

Ayant pour objet la ville et les processus d’urbanisation, l’urbaniste mobilise, pour remplir sa mission, des savoirs et compétences disciplinaires variés (sociologie, économie, génie civil, sciences politiques, architecture urbaine, géographie, sciences de la gestion, etc.). Né en début de deuxième moitié du XIXe siècle dans le sillage des préoccupations hygiénistes et longtemps préoccupé par les questions de croissance, l’urbanisme est aujourd’hui convoqué sur le terrain d’une urbanisation ...

Abstract

Les transformations que connaît la famille aujourd'hui ne sont pas de simples adaptations aux valeurs contemporaines. Elles atteignent toutes les caractéristiques structurelles du type de famille spécifiquement moderne et, par là, signalent une dérive postmoderne de société auquel il est inséparablement lié. La fin de la famille moderne n'est ni un réquisitoire, ni un cri de ralliement. Il constitue un effort pour appréhender la portée civilisationnelle des changements contemporains de la fam...

Abstract

By 2020, half of the world’s population and most university students will have a supercomputer in their pockets. This revolution will affect the way students respond to higher education. The university classroom must henceforth engage students, and the classic lecture format alone might not be enough to do so. This book answers the question how university students can learn in the classroom what they cannot learn in any other way.The answer is inspired by options that are not available to political scientists – in the way that they are in the laboratories for the sciences, in the performances for the live arts, and in the studios for visual arts – as well as ideas that are already present, but not widespread in the discipline: problem-solving and case studies, as in the professional schools, and simulation exercises in many other disciplines. This book proposes therefore an active pedagogy for political science, at a time when active pedagogy is more important than ever.

Abstract

This research topic aims to integrate scattered findings on sex differences in neuroscience into a broader theory of how the human brain is shaped by sex and sex hormones in order to cause the great variety of sex differences that are commonly observed. It can be assumed that these differences didn’t occur arbitrarily, but that they rather determined and still determine evolutionary success of individuals and were shaped by the processes of natural and in particular sexual selection. Therefore, sex differences are not negligible and sex difference research cannot be discriminating against one sex or the other. In fact a better understanding of the underlying causes of sex differences has great advantages for both men and women and society as a whole, not only in terms of health care, but in every aspect of life. Gender equality can only work out if it is equally well understood for men and women what their individual resources and needs are. Therefore, it is of great importance to pave the way for identifying the underlying principles of structural and functional brain organization that cause men and women to act, think and feel differently. To this end it is of particular interest to identify possible similarities and interrelations between sex differences that did so far stand separately, in order to investigate whether they share a common source. To understand, where a specific sex difference comes from and whether or not it is caused by the same principle as other sex differences, it is necessary to explicitly link sex differences in behavior to their neuronal correlates and vice versa link sex differences in brain structure and function to their behavioral outcomes. In particular a new understanding of male and female brain functioning may arise from findings on how sex hormones interact with various neurotransmitter systems. In the past few years several findings demonstrated that women’s behavior is influenced by the sex hormone fluctuations they experience naturally during their menstrual cycle to the extent that sex differences may only be detectable in one cycle phase but not another. The study of menstrual cycle dependent effects gives important hints about which sex differences are activational and which are organizational. Additionally it only recently came to attention, that hormonal contraception may alter a women’s mood, cognition and behavior as a consequence of changes in brain structure and function. The underlying mechanisms are so poorly understood that it is even hard to predict, whether hormonal contraception will mask or amplify sex differences in a given task. Since the oral hormonal contraceptive pill is meanwhile used by 100 million women worldwide and even by teenagers whose brains are not yet fully developed, the question of how the synthetic steroids contained in hormonal contraceptives act on the brain is to be studied hand in hand with naturally occurring sex differences. This topic summarizes the current state of the art in sex difference research and gives new perspectives in terms of hypothesis generation an methodology. Both are necessary to gain a complete picture of what it is that makes a brain male or female and move towards a neuroscience of sex differences.

Abstract

This volume provides the first ever large-scale comparative treatment of there sentences (there copula NP), reporting the results of a survey of Italo-Romance and Sardinian dialects of Italy. The volume comprises detailed discussions of focus structure, predication and argument realization, the definiteness effects, and the linking from semantics to syntax in there sentences, advancing novel proposals in each case. The testing of influential hypotheses on existential constructions against first-hand dialect evidence leads the book to argue that existential and locative there sentences differ in focus structure and semantics, although their not being predicate focus constructions and the non-canonicality of the predicate—which is typically referential—is reflected in their shared morphosyntactic features. The hypothesis that the pivot is the predicate of the existential construction is adopted in the analysis, although a distinction is drawn between referential and non-referential pivots, which explains variation in pivot behaviour in morphosyntax. The volume also provides the historical background of Romance there sentences, relying on the findings of the analysis of a substantial corpus of early Italo-Romance vernacular texts.

Abstract

Des chevaliers armés d’épées en mousse s’affrontent le dimanche sur les flancs du mont Royal. Game of Thrones et The Lord of the Rings séduisent les foules. Les jeux vidéo plongeant les joueurs dans le passé médiéval sont nombreux et populaires. On le voit : il y a un engouement pour le Moyen Âge. Francis Gingras montre comment cette période historique est aussi un objet d’étude pour beaucoup de disciplines : littérature, histoire, histoire de l’art, philosophie, etc. Le Moyen Âge nous paraî...

Abstract

Pourquoi un ouvrage sur le genre ? Pourquoi un de plus ? Comme le fait remarquer Philippe Lejeune dans l’interview figurant dans ce volume, les études sur le genre occupent une place importante dans la recherche anglo-saxonne, qui les conçoit comme un enjeu politique majeur. Il en va autrement en France. Les chercheurs dans le domaine des études anglophones ne peuvent ignorer cette question, ils lisent leurs consœurs et confrères outre-atlantique, s’en inspirent, mais ils font montre d’une at...
