    Abstract : The study approaches the question of the role and legitimacy of academic theology given a certain theoretical conception of the intellectual situation. From the perspective of a critical interpretation of some contemporary problems of theology, on the one hand, and some problematic aspects of secular thought, on the other, the study inquires into the notion of theology for a self-critical theoretical potential of general academic value.

  2. 2. Between Colonialism and Nationalism : Art, History, and Politics in James Joyce’s Ulysses

    Abstract : Through a thorough analysis of all eighteen episodes of Ulysses, this study advances a dialectical reading of Ireland’s pre-revolutionary imagination as it unfolds in James Joyce’s novel. By tracing Joyce’s engagements with British colonialism, national romanticism and the Celtic Revival, this study views Joyce’s modernist project as a comprehensive literary response to Ireland’s changing aesthetic sensibilities, political fortunes, and social concerns.

  3. 3. Electrophysiological correlates of consciousness

    Author : Rasmus Eklund; Stefan Wiens; Mats Nilsson; Antti Revonsuo; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; neural correlates of consciousness; electroencephalography; event-related potentials; visual awareness negativity; auditory awareness negativity; recurrent processing; phenomenal consciousness; access consciousness; psykologi; Psychology;

    Abstract : How does the brain enable us to experience seeing or hearing a stimulus? If a stimulus is repeatedly presented at the awareness threshold, subjects will report that they are aware of the stimulus on half of the presentations. Electroencephalography (EEG) can be used to non-invasively record neural activity as event-related potentials (ERPs). READ MORE

  4. 4. Biomass conversion through syngas-based biorefineries : thermochemical process integration opportunities

    Author : Katarina Åberg; Anders Nordin; Linda Pommer; Erik Dahlquist; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Biomass; biorefinery; thermochemical conversion; torrefaction; slow pyrolysis; gasification; process integration; carbon negativity;

    Abstract : The replacement of fossil resources through renewable alternatives is one way to mitigate global climate change. Biomass is the only renewable source of carbon available for replacing oil as a refining feedstock. Therefore, it needs to be utilized not just as a fuel but for both biochemical and thermochemical conversion through biorefining. READ MORE
