  • Innocence lost: a problem for punishment as duty

    Constrained instrumentalist theories of punishment - those that seek to justify punishment by its good effects, but limit its scope - are an attractive alternative to pure retributivism or utilitarianism. One way in which we may be able to limit the scope of instrumental punishment is by justifying punishment through the concept of duty. This strategy is most clearly pursued in Victor Tadros' influential 'Duty View' of punishment. In this paper, I show that the Duty View as it stands cannot f...

    Leadership identity in a small island developing state: the Jamaican context

    While the role of leadership in improving schools is attracting more worldwide attention, there is a need for more research investigating leaders’ experiences in different national contexts. Using focus-group and semi-structured interview data, this paper explores the background, identities and experiences of a small group of Jamaican school leaders who were involved in a leadership development programme. By drawing on the concepts of culture, socialisation and identity, the paper examines ho...

    The Cyclamen graecum group, how many species?

    Cyclamen graecum is a well-defined evolutionary unit that separated from other Cyclamen species about 10 million years ago (Yesson & Culham 2006; Yesson, Toomey & Culham, 2009). It is genetically isolated and there are no records of it hybridizing naturally with other species. However, over that time it has begun to form separate populations that themselves might later become species. The split between C. graecum subsp. graecum and C. graecum subsp. anatolicum, at 2.9-3.4mya, is older than th...

    Counteracting the climate effects of volcanic eruptions using short-lived greenhouse gases

    A large volcanic eruption might constitute a climate emergency, significantly altering global temperature and precipitation for several years. Major future eruptions will occur, but their size or timing cannot be predicted. We show, for the first time, that it may be possible to counteract these climate effects through deliberate emissions of short-lived greenhouse gases, dampening the abrupt impact of an eruption. We estimate an emission pathway countering a hypothetical eruption 3 times the...

    Supramolecular polymer blends for composite matrices

    This research project reports a new approach to thermoplastic composite matrix design, in which a low-MW polymer additive acts as a plasticiser and flow-promoter at high temperatures, but as a non-covalent cross-linking agent at lower temperatures. Thus, poly(aryl ether ketone)s (PAEKs) are functionalised with π-electron rich terminal groups and blended with π-electron deficient polyimides. A non-covalent charge-transfer stacking interaction between the two polymers forms a self-assembled sup...
