Abstract

Stendhal - le sait-on ? - a passé une bonne partie de sa vie à étudier l'art de Molière et à essayer d'écrire des comédies. Si ses tentatives de comic bard ont toutes échoué, elles ont néanmoins laissé des traces profondes dans son œuvre, marquant en particulier ses romans. Les contributions réunies dans le présent ouvrage tirent les conséquences de l'intérêt manifesté par Stendhal pour toutes les formes de comique. Elles analysent l'empreinte de la comédie dans l'écriture romanesque, d'Armance à Lamiel, et la place du comique, ainsi que de catégories comme l'humour, l'ironie, l'autodérision, la satire, la parodie, la caricature ou le grotesque dans les écrits théoriques et autobiographiques de celui qui affirmait que « rien, ou presque rien, ne lui semblait valoir la peine qu'on en parle avec gravité ».

Abstract

When we think about expertise, we usually consider people who master tasks at a level not reachable by most other people. Although we rarely realise it, however, most humans are experts in many aspects of everyday life. This expertise enables us to find our way through a complex environment that is our life. For instance, we can instantly recognise multiple objects and relations between them to form a meaningful unit, such as an office. Thus, research on expertise is not only important to investigate the cognitive and neural processes within an “elite” group, but it is also a powerful tool to understand how everyone can acquire complex skills. The goal of this Research Topic is to shed further light on the common and distinct neural mechanisms that implement various kinds of expertise. We broadly define expertise as skill in any perceptual, cognitive, social or motor domain, with the common core being optimised information processing due to knowledge acquired from repeated experiences. Thus, we are interested in the full range of mental processes modulated or modified by expertise, from “simple” object or pattern recognition to complex decision making or problem solving in a particular domain. These domains can range from everyday or occupational expertise to sports and rather artificial domains such as board games. In all cases, the aim should be to elucidate how the brain implements these sometimes incredible feats. We are particularly interested in connecting cognitive theories about expertise and expertise-related performance differences with models and data on the neural implementation of expertise. We welcome original research contributions using the full range of behavioural neuroscience methods, as well as theoretical, methodological or historical reviews, and opinion papers focusing on any of the above-mentioned aspects.

Abstract

Vanouds gaven sociale partners hun doelen rond arbeidsmarkt en inkomenszekerheid vorm via afspraken binnen sectoren. Hun rol bij de werknemersverzekeringen is echter verdwenen en het sectorale arbeidsvoorwaardenoverleg verliest aan betekenis. Er komt in de regio echter een nieuwe werkelijkheid op van boards en valleys, waar overheden, kennisinstellingen en bedrijfsleven afspraken maken met het oog op innovatie, verdienvermogen en werkgelegenheid. Het aantal platforms groeit en hun agenda dijt uit. Zij stimuleren de innovatiekracht van de regio met projecten en investeringen. Geholpen door regelingen als Techniekpact, Sectorplannen en Regionaal Investeringsfonds krijgen deze boards ook een human capital agenda. Daarmee zijn ze een nieuwe speler geworden op het domein van werkzekerheid en sociale zekerheid. Ze bieden ook nieuwe kansen voor werkgeversorganisaties en vakbonden.

Abstract

Education in Scotland is markedly different from what happens in the rest of the UK - with a different National Curriculum, school boards to oversee school management and a General Teaching Council which has been in existence since 1965. Whilst there are many examples of successful and innovative practice in Scotland, the system is quite often not recognised as different by writers who talk about the UK education system as if it were one smooth whole. This book describes recent developments in both legislation and practice in Scotland, drawing comparisons with the Eng system. Chapters cover: * administration and management * the professional competence of teachers * early years education provision * the 'National Curriculum' in Scotland * Secondary Education * Special Educational Needs

Abstract

This book focuses on «Convertibilidad», the latest Argentine experience of exchange rate based stabilisation, and aims at isolating the main causes for its tragic collapse in 2001-2002. The characteristics of Argentina’s high and hyperinflation during the 1980s are analysed, and the theory of currency boards is expounded. The stabilisation tool, an institutionally highly credible currency board arrangement (CBA), though highly effective, could not be an optimal long-term solution, given the country’s structural and trade characteristics. The analysis of the causes of the CBA’s collapse yields a complex picture of interacting factors, among them invaliding ones that had created multiple vulnerabilities over years, and triggering ones that unfolded their worst potential in meeting such vulnerable conditions.

Abstract

In dieser Arbeit werden zur Überwachung von Drei-Wege-Katalysatoren zwei neue modellbasierte On-Board-Diagnoseverfahren vorgestellt. Zunächst wurde ein die Alterung mit berücksichtigendes physikalisches Katalysatormodell entwickelt. Dieses bildet die Grundlage der neuen Diagnoseverfahren, bei denen ein den aktuellen Zustand des Katalysators schätzender Sigma-Punkt-Kalman-Filter zum Einsatz kommt. Das große Potential dieser neuen Diagnoseverfahren zeigen die abschließend präsentierten Ergebnisse.

Abstract

The 1990s saw a revival of the currency board system, and proponents have advocated it as an easy-to-set-up exchange rate arrangement providing effective stabilization of the economy. However, the experience of Argentina has highlighted the risks of having a currency board. This study presents both the potential benefits, as well as the risks, of having a currency board by examining the stability of the currency board arrangement and identifying factors affecting the stability. The analysis is based on second-generation currency crisis models, extended to incorporate currency-board specific features and to account for particular aspects often found in currency-board economies.

Abstract

An unprecedented ascent: from the thirteenth child of a poor Jewish emigration agent to the "sovereign of seafaring" and "friend" of the emperor. No wonder that Albert Ballin was one of the most outstanding figures of the Wilhelmine Empire. From the very beginning, he caused a stir at the Hamburg-American Packetfahrt-Actien-Gesellschaft, or Hapag for short. Under the leadership of their manager Ballin, the latter became the world's largest shipping company. From 1907 until his tragic death on November 9,1918, Ballin was a member of the board of trustees of the Hamburgische Wissenschaftliche Stiftung and had a special impact here as well. This biography traces the extraordinary life of this man. [German edition]

Abstract

Ernst Friedrich Sieveking is one of the outstanding personalities in Hamburg's history. He showed special talents at an early age, so that he was already a fully trained lawyer at the age of 21. He then joined a renowned law firm which he managed successfully for many years on his own. In 1879 Sieveking was appointed the first president of the newly founded Hanseatic Higher Regional Court in 1879. Until his death, for thirty years, he remained president of the Court of First Instance, which earned him a high reputation as an expert on maritime law. In addition, he was actively involved in the founding of Hamburg University, which is why he was also a member of the first board of trustees of the Hamburg Scientific Foundation. Surrounded by three representative buildings, the Sievekingplatz in Hamburg still reminds us of him to this day.
