  • Éthique et recherches sur le VIH : un sujet exceptionnellement fécond !

    L'histoire sociale de la lutte contre le sida est celle d'une arène singulière, où se mêlent chercheurs, activistes, soignants et responsables de politiques de santé nationales et/ou internationale. La lutte contre le sida a également eu un impact considérable, à la fois sur la reformulation des rapports entre médecins et patients, chercheurs et profanes, mais aussi du fait de la revendication portée par certains des acteurs de cette lutte d'être des "sujets" et non des "objets" de la recherche. Tout comme le virus de l'immunodéficience humaine ou VIH a été un révélateur et un réformateur social dans nos sociétés, la lutte contre le sida a aussi été traversée de controverses et débats éthiques. Dans ce domaine il a eu pour effet la mise en place de pratiques nouvelles.

  • What the Island Provides: Island Sustainability and Island-Human Relationality

    Brandy Nālani McDougall (eScholarship Publishing, University of California, 2019-07-01)
    <em></em><p class="Body"><em> </em></p><em></em><p class="Body">In this essay I examine three artworks featured in this issue: Chris Charteris’s<em> Te ma</em>; Maile Andrade’s <em>Hana ka Lima</em>; and Ibrahim Miranda’s <em>Isla laboratorio o 7 maravillas</em> or <em>Island Laboratory of 7 Wonders</em>. Following descriptions of the artworks and their materials, I assert that each piece emphasizes what I refer to as “island-human relationality,” which recognizes human interconnections and kinship with the island. Such kinship, I argue, entails the human adoption of an ethic of island sustainability, of humans receiving what the island provides, while also ensuring the island is not exploited or abused for its resources.</p><em> </em><p class="Body"><em> </em></p><em></em>
  • El tratamiento periodístico del suicidio en diarios digitales de Argentina, España y Perú

    Graña, Silvina; Meneses Fernández, María Dolores (2019)
    This work shows an analysis of the journalistic treatment of four cases of suicide of international celebrities in digital newspapers of three Spanish-speaking countries: Argentina, Spain and Peru. Two of them, Argentina and Peru, regulate the treatment of suicide through their deontological codes. In Spain, none of the deontological codes applied at the national level do so. The chosen cases have been those of Chester Bennington, Robin Williams, Tony Scott and Alexander McQueen. Our goal was to identify the degree of adequacy of the media to self-regulation norms and to the recommendations of health professionals. We did an analysis of journalistic content, deontological codes and international guidelines prepared by health experts. The results reveal the dysfunction in the informative treatment and the deontological norms regarding the international directives.

  • Entrée en institution d'une personne âgée : quel consentement ?

    Service de médecine gériatrique; CHU Bordeaux [Bordeaux]-Groupe Hospitalier Sud-Hôpital Xavier Arnozan; Rainfray, Muriel (HAL CCSDERENA, 2018)
    Bien qu'encadré par des textes règlementaires et des recommandations de bonnes pratiques, le consentement des personnes âgées à une entrée en institution soulève encore des difficultés dont il faut prendre conscience pour mieux les accompagner dans cette décision qui reste toujours difficile à prendre. L'explication claire des conséquences qu'entraine l'entrée en institution, le respect d'un temps de réflexion suffisamment long, l'aide nécessaire à la résolution des problèmes financiers sont des éléments importants à prendre en compte pour respecter le mieux possible le droit de chaque personne âgée de choisir son lieu de vie. Une réflexion sur la liberté de chaque personne âgée de prendre des risques pour rester à domicile devrait être un des éléments de la formation des soignants.

  • Scienza e società: sinergie e criticità nell’era digitale

    Michela Luzi; Marino D'Amore (Firenze University Press, 2020-05-01)
    In the historical season of communicative and existential immateriality, man must necessarily abandon his solipsistic immobility to embrace collaborative sharing. A new condition that completely changes anthropic sociality, makes it strongly participatory, both at a structural level and at a purely emotional level. Science acts as a catalyst and contextualizing spark for this process, through its different forms, acting as a unifying element between tradition and innovation. Internet, in this sex, acts as a communicative tool of this union, neutralizing the spatial and temporal dimension, systematically updating processes of socialization and collaboration that provide a representation of reality, both scientific and social, sometimes congruent and true, others deeply sweetened and fictitious. In the first case, this simulacrum of the real as such is useful and aimed at the establishment and increase of a collective intelligence that uses different contributions and hetero-directed, in the second, however, delivers a false vision, factious, functional to other purposes that relate to the persuasion fidelizing, betraying, in fact, the very essence of the scientific mission.
  • Rumeurs et manipulations de marché : comment éviter les pratiques illicites ?

    Centre d'études et de recherches appliquées à la gestion (CERAG); Université Pierre Mendès France - Grenoble 2 (UPMF)-Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique (CNRS); Albouy, M. (HAL CCSDAssociation Francophone de Comptabilité, 2006)
    Comment prévenir les risques éthiques liés à la diffusion de fausses informations ou de rumeurs sur le marché financier ? Dans quelle mesure les rumeurs peuvent-elles fausser le processus de formation des cours, et donc l'évaluation de l'entreprise ? Cet article s'efforce de répondre à ces questions en s'appuyant sur la réglementation française en matière d'abus de marché et d'un cas récent de manipulation de cours : la rumeur d'offre publique d'achat (OPA) sur Danone en juillet 2005. Bien que le régulateur du marché français – l'Autorité des marchés Financiers (AMF) – dispose d'outils pour prévenir les risques éthiques, il apparaît in fine que la prévention de ces risques se heurte à de nombreuses difficultés.
  • Migrant care workers in elderly care: what a study of media representations suggests about Sweden as a caring democracy

    Sandra Torres; Jonas Lindblom (Linköping University Electronic Press, 2020-06-01)
    This article sheds light on the ways in which migrant care workers in the elderly care sector were represented in Swedish daily newspaper articles published between 1995 and 2017 (n = 370); it uses the notions of the “ethics of care” and “caring democracy” as a prism through which the findings can be made sense of. By bringing attention to the fact that they are often described as the solution par excellence to the staffing crisis Swedish elderly care is experiencing, this article draws attention to portrayals of these workers as people who are  both particularly good at caring and capable of providing culture-appropriate care. Thus, although depicted as “particular Others,” these workers are represented as an asset to the sector – a sector that is thought to offer much needed but highly undervalued services. By bringing attention to both of these representations, and using the theoretical and conceptual framework “ethics of care” formulated by Tronto, the article questions whether Sweden – a country often described as the epitome of an egalitarian society – can be regarded as a caring democracy.
  • “The time has come for a new word”: Katherine Mansfield’s Literary Ethics

    Alice BORREGO (Laboratoire d’Etudes et de Recherches sur le Monde Anglophone (LERMA), 2020-06-01)
    This article examines how Katherine Mansfield’s literary ethics and aesthetics were challenged by the First World War. Mainly focusing on her non-fictional writings, it suggests that the conflict led Mansfield to develop and call for an ethical responsibility towards her entire generation – a disposition that finds its expression in her fragmented literary technique. Dwelling on what Stephen Ross calls a modernist “ethical impulse to improve upon the status quo”, this article aims at showing how the war progressively led Mansfield to draw a modernist manifesto that advocated a “new word”.

  • Human Rights Education in Religious Culture and Ethics Courses

    Emine Zehra Turan (Journal of Social Studies Education Research, 2020-06-01)
    All individuals expect to be informed about and respectful of human rights for the sake of international peace. This study aims to evaluate students' views and suggestions on Religious Culture and Ethics courses regarding human rights education in Turkey. A qualitative method was followed by adopting a case study inquiry. The participants were 7th and 8th grade students studying at a secondary school in Turkey. There were 30 voluntarily participants who took part in the study, and completed a questionnaire on the Religious Culture and Ethics Course. The results indicated that religious culture and ethics courses were considered as one of the most suitable platforms in which to teach human rights. The results also reported that there were fundamental differences in the perception of religious education and the emphasis on human and individual rights in religious culture and ethics courses, and instead of universal values, the results show that Islamic values were prioritized rather over universal values. The participants, who talked about the need to cooperate with other courses in a multidisciplinary way to ensure human rights education wanted to find solutions for the security of humanity in this age of wars and migrations. Based on these results, the subjects and themes covered in religious culture and ethics courses can be reviewed and teachers should be more sensitive while teaching human rights. In this regard, educational researchers and practitioners need tools that can be applied in a range of local, national, and international contexts and scales in this age.

  • Sensibility to ambient lighting in the architecture of the huge dwellings in the 18th - early 19th century.

    Equipe de Recherche sur les Ambiances (ERA) ; Ecole doctorale Sciences et ingénieries architecturales (EdSia) ; Ecole Nationale d'Architecture et d'Urbanisme de Tunis (ENAU) ; Université de Carthage - University of Carthage-Université de Carthage - University of Carthage-Ecole Nationale d'Architecture et d'Urbanisme de Tunis (ENAU) ; Université de Carthage - University of Carthage-Université de Carthage - University of Carthage; Ecole Nationale d'Architecture et d'Urbanisme de Tunis; Jean-Pierre Péneau(jean-pierre.peneau@wanadoo.fr); Karoui, Hind (HAL CCSD, 2012-03-09)
    The conducted research is an attempt to rebuild ambient lighting in the huge dwellings of the Bey ruling time's dignitaries, in the 18th and early 19th century (1704-1815), located in the medina of Tunis. The research aims at understanding the respective roles of the "architect" and the employees in this "highlighting" of traditional domestic space of Tunis. Two main points articulated our thinking: the first concerns the profile of the inhabitants and of the head of the guild of master masons, who is responsible for the work design and execution; the second point concerns the characterization of the dwelling's ambient lighting spaces. The approach method is interactional. It allows to combine the socio-historical part with the experimental one. This method applies to geometric modeling, numerical simulation as well as light measurements taking, performed in one of our corpus dwellings, namely dãr Ben Abdallah (Bãb el-Jazeera). The types of piercing and solar protection items that were added, as well as their orientation and location in the dwelling, were also analyzed. Moreover, using lighting SOLENE software (CERMA, UMR, CNRS 1563), we developed Light Maps to describe three life stages considered representative of family life of the time. These are: 1. A reproduction of the owner's relaxation moment: the Minister Slimãne Kéhia in his private observatory (kushk), 2. A meeting between his wife, Princess Aziza and her guests in the " T " shape Room of the guest house, 3. A working day, particularly a laborious one, experienced by young black servants on the occasion of the family's annual supplying with couscous. Each of these scenes took place at a particular time of the year and within a specific area of the house. The obtained results allowed us to understand the relationship existing between the users tastes and desires on the one hand, the architect's constructive practices, and know-how on the other, and the lighting quality of the inhabited spaces. So why not speak of a " culture of light " that emerges through people's actions and their way of managing, adjusting, and controlling lighting devices with respect to their mode of life, tastes and aspirations?
