Thomistic Institute 1998: Wallace

Wallace, O.P. The topic I wish to explore in this paper should be of special interest to Thomists, for St. Thomas's teachings on the relationships between physical science and mathematics are distinctive and relevant to problems faced by scientists and philosophers in the present day.

Neurogenetic networks for startle-induced locomotion in Drosophila melanogaster

Hartl, Harvard University, Cambridge, MA, and approved June 22, 2008 (received for review May 20, 2008) Abstract Understanding how the genome empowers the nervous system to express behaviors remains a critical challenge in behavioral genetics. The startle response is an attractive behavioral model for studies on the relationship between genes, brain, and behavior, as the ability to respond rapidly to harmful changes in the environment is a universal survival trait. A major goal of behavioral genetics is to understand the relationship between the genome and the nervous system.

Définition de la vie, les théories anciennes et la science moderne. Dès la plus haute antiquité, des philosophes ou des médecins célèbres ont regardé les phénomènes qui se déroulent dans les êtres vivans comme émanés d’un principe supérieur et immatériel agissant sur la matière inerte et obéissante.

Définition de la vie, les théories anciennes et la science moderne

Telle est la pensée de Pythagore, de Platon, d’Aristote, d’Hippocrate, acceptée plus tard par les philosophes et les savans mystiques du moyen âge, Paracelse, Van-Helmont et par les scolastiques. Cette conception atteignit dans le cours du XVIIIe siècle son apogée de faveur et d’influence avec le célèbre médecin Stahl, qui lui donna une forme plus nette en créant l’animisme. L’animisme a été l’expression outrée de la spiritualité de la vie ; Stahl fut le partisan déterminé et le plus dogmatique de ces idées perpétuées depuis Aristote. On peut ajouter qu’il en fut le dernier représentant ; l’esprit moderne n’a pas accueilli une doctrine dont la contradiction avec la science était devenue trop manifeste.

Homeostasis and the Forgotten Vitalist Roots of Adaptation - Springer. Through most of the twentieth century, biology’s image as a valid science has been gauged by how closely it adheres to the norms of “objective” sciences like physics, chemistry and mathematics.

In the seventh part we expounded the moral portions. Our exposition has shown how faithful the saint has remained to his initial announcement [1324] that dogmatic theology and moral theology are not two distinct branches of knowledge, but only two parts of one and the same branch of knowledge. Like God's knowledge from which it descends, theology is, pre-eminently and simultaneously, both speculative and practical, having throughout but one sole object: God revealed in His own inner life, God as source and goal of all creation.
