    Abstract:

    Modernism’s materialistic view of the human person denies beauty and the transcendental in man and in the family. To awaken wonder and respect for the transcendence of the human person, great beauty in architecture should be made through an imitation of nature in the Classical tradition to reflect the beauty of the family. A shrine to Our Lady of Fair Love is therefore proposed to be an object of beauty where pilgrims can come to experience the beauty of human life and love in a tactile way.

    Abstract:

    This is the story of the transformation of the ways in which the increasingly Christianized elites of the late antique Mediterranean experienced and conceptualized linguistic differences. The metaphor of Babel stands for the magnificent edifice of classical culture that was about to reach the sky, but remained self-sufficient and self-contained in its virtual monolingualism – the paradigm within which even Latin was occasionally considered just a dialect of Greek. The gradual erosion of this …

    Abstract:

    Investment in scientific research in low- and middle-income countries has the potential to increase evidence generation, improve researcher capacity, and motivate policy change. However, the link between scientific research and longer-term outcomes such as policy change has not been rigorously tested. We need an improved understanding of how to link researchers and policymakers toward data-driven decision-making. This brief presents evidence from a mixed methods, medium- to long-term impact e…

    Abstract:

    According to the principle of double effect, there is a strict moral constraint against bringing about serious harm to the innocent intentionally, but it is permissible in a wider range of circumstances to act in a way that brings about harm as a foreseen but non-intended side effect. This idea plays an important role in just war theory and international law, and in the twentieth century Elizabeth Anscombe and Philippa Foot invoked it as a way of resisting consequentialism. However, many mora…

    Description:

    An approach for approximate kinematic synthesis of mechanisms which computes a graph that identifies minima of an objective function as vertices and connections between them as edges. Such a graph is interactively presented to a designer, whereby edges are continuously traversed to navigate families of design candidates in between minima. Candidates are evaluated continuously according to auxiliary considerations for the exploration of design trade-offs. Computing the aforementioned graphs be…

    Carter, Katlyn
    Abstract:

    Exploring the intense and common critique of secrecy articulated by the Federalists’ opponents both before and after ratification, this article sheds new light on the way in which the Constitution left open the question of what it meant to represent the people in government. The article traces how concerns about secrecy were amplified in the early republic, becoming a primary discourse in which Federalist policies were contested and serving as glue that bound former Antifederalists with D…

    Abstract:

    By the early twenty-first century, about one woman in twelve could expect to die of a pregnancy or childbirth complication in Malawi. Specific deaths became object lessons. Explanatory stories circulated through hospitals and villages, proliferating among a range of practitioners: nurse-midwives, traditional birth attendants, doctors, epidemiologists, herbalists. Was biology to blame? Economic underdevelopment? Immoral behavior? Tradition? Were the dead themselves at fault?

    Abstract:

    Trust is essential to the foundation of America’s democracy, asserts Pete Buttigieg, the former presidential candidate and South Bend mayor. Yet, in a century warped by terrorism, financial collapse, Trumpist populism, systemic racism, and now a global pandemic, trust has been squandered, sacrificed, abused, stolen, or never properly built in the first place. And now, more so than ever before, Americans must work side by side to reckon with the monumental challenges posed by our present momen…

    Abstract:

    The Gacaca courts have been the subject of much academic work. Yet, few studies have examined the elected individuals who presided over Gacaca court trials, reflecting a broader paucity of research on local practitioners of transitional justice. Accordingly, this study asks two questions: (1) How did the Gacaca court judges, known as Inyangamugayo, perceive their duties to fight impunity and facilitate reconciliation? And (2) What challenges did the Inyangamugayo face as they sought…

    Abstract:

    This article provides an ethnographic account of baptism as it is practiced and understood by Christians living in a multi-denominational Upper Egyptian town. Given the challenges of defining baptism in ecumenical terms, this study approaches the topic in terms of three organizing frameworks: baptism as discourse, as rite, and as reproduction. These overlapping metaphors have the advantage of revealing what has often been overlooked in both Coptic studies and the anthropology of Christianity;…
