  • Against the complex versus simple distinction

    This paper examines three proposals on the difference between complex and simple views about personal identity: Parfit’s original introduction of the distinction, Gasser and Stefan’s definition and Noonan’s recent proposal. I argue that the first two classify the paradigm cases of simplicity as complex, while Noonan’s proposal makes simplicity and complexity turn on features whose relevance for the distinction is questionable. Given these difficulties, I examine why we should be interested in...

    Exploring the substrate scope of the fluorinase from Streptomyces cattleya for applications to positron emission tomography

    The fluorinase enzyme, originally isolated from Streptomyces cattleya, has the unique ability to generate a C–F bond from aqueous fluoride ion and S-adenosylmethionine, making the fluorinase an attractive biochemical tool for radiolabelling biomolecules with fluorine-18 for application to positron emission tomography (PET). The inherent substrate specificity of the enzyme is, however, limiting, as only small modifications to the natural nucleoside substrate were known to be tolerated. This th...

    Kierkegaard on the Christian response to the God who establishes kinship with us in time

    When reading through certain areas of Kierkegaard’s writings, there is room to misinterpret his vision of Christianity as being grounded solely in a person’s subjective commitment to her own idea of what Christianity is. In large part, this has contributed to the perception of Kierkegaard as an existentialist who disregards the objective reality of Christianity. In this essay, I contend that Kierkegaard understands the Christian faith as being grounded in a human response to the (mind-indepen...

    Chemical control of the polymorphic phase boundaries in doped barium titanate

    Barium titanate (BaTiO₃), a known ferroelectric material, is of great interest as a future lead-free piezoelectric if appropriately doped to tailor the electric properties for specific applications. This work focuses on the study and rationalisation of the dielectric properties of a series of A-site/B-site co-doped compositions: SrZrO₃-BaTiO₃, CaZrO₃-BaTiO₃, LaScO₃-BaTiO₃ and GdScO₃-BaTiO₃. The effect of sintering conditions and microstructure on ceramics is shown to have a significant ...

    ‘Keeping with contemporary times’: social tourism and West German youth hostel organizations, 1950s-1980s

    The research on which this article is based was generously financed by the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation. This article examines the organizations that ran youth hostels in West Germany from the 1950s to 1989. It analyses whether they reconfigured their aims and practices against the backdrop of the cultural, social and political transformations that West Germany underwent throughout its existence, especially concerning the establishment of strong ties with ‘Western’ countries and the s...
