NATURALIST MORAL THEORY: A REPLY TO STADDON
ABSTRACT: In an earlier essay in this journal, the estimable John Staddon charges B. F. Skinner and E. O. Wilson with committing several fallacies while promoting evolutionary ethics. The present essay replies that what ...
Photoexcitation of astrophysically important states in Mg-26. II. Ground-state-transition partial widths
The level structure of Mg-26 near the neutron-separation energy, which is of interest for s-process nucleosynthesis, was studied at the High Intensity Gamma-Ray Source of the Triangle Universities Nuclear Laboratory usinng ...
Polarization Transfer in the He-4((e)over-right-arrow, e '(p)over-right-arrow)H-3 Reaction at Q(2)=0.8 and 1.3 (GeV/c)(2)
Proton recoil polarization was measured in the quasielastic He-4((e) over right arrow, e '(p) over right arrow)H-3 reaction at Q(2) = 0.8 and 1.3 (GeV/c)(2) with unprecedented precision. The polarization-transfer coefficcients ...
On the nonlinear electromagnetic coupling between a coil and an oscillating magnet
(Journal of Physics D: Applied Physics, 2010-07-16)
The electromagnetic induction of voltage across a coil due to the motion of a magnet is among the fundamental problems of physics, and it has a broad range of practical applications. While Maxwell's equations exactly desscribe ...
HOPE and the Journal Literature in the History of Economic Thought
What sorts of changes should we expect to see following the advent of a new specialist journal? Will the flow of articles from the related subdiscipline which appear in generalist journals diminish? Will the new journal ...
"Profitability of Monopolization by Vertical Integration"
(Journal of Political Economy, 1971)
Preemption, Divestiture, and Forward Contracting in a Market Dominated by a Single Firm
A central concern of industrial organization literature is to determine if markets dominated by a leading producer tend to remain that way when entry by rival firms is possible. In particular, suppose market entry is liimited ...
Methodology: A Comment on Frazer and Boland, I
Milton Friedman has been taken by some to be a follower of the logical positivists and by others a disciple of the philosopher Karl Popper, but until recently not enough has been said by way of support for such claims too ...
Implicit Tax Rate Reductions with Growth, Progressive Taxes, Constant Progressivity, and a Fixed Public Share
It is the purpose of this paper to state with rigor and precision the pattern of tax rate reductions which will meet these requirements. The question is approached in Part I by means of a theoretical model withh ...
Economic Theory and Society: A Plea for Process Analysis
That the social sciences have grown up linked with their subject matter presents a unique challenge to historians. They have not only to unravel the complex strands in the evolution of theory but have also to discover thhe ...
