Changing conceptions of the good. MacIntyre and Kierkegaard on the virtues and the good life.

University of Antwerp

The second half of the twentieth century saw, especially through the work of Alasdair MacIntyre, a rehabilitation of classical virtue ethics, which is now considered to be one of the most influential ethical paradigms. But because the virtue ethics MacIntyre rehabilitates risks being too classical to find proper application in our times, it needs to be confronted with a strongly modern ethics. In this research project the virtue ethics MacIntyre rehabilitates is, for that reason, confronted w...

Characterisation of phase dependently regulated factors in the locust central nervous system.

KU Leuven

The desert locust, Schistocerca gregaria, is a textbook example of phenotypic plasticity (polyphenism), exhibiting two distinct forms called phases. The complete transition from the solitarious to the greggarious phase is a generation spanning process. However, the change in behaviour provoked by certain gregarisation stimuli occurs in a matter of hours. Therefore, this insect can stand as a model for plasticity on different time scales. In this project, we aim to investigate the molecular me...

Apart from its application in meat preservation, chilling is also employed to maintain uniform color throughout the muscles by reducing the rate of post-mortem changes. The rate of physiological and biochemical changes in the muscles of slaughtered animals depends on the temperature of the carcass. The rate and extent of these changes determine the color quality of meat especially in the internal parts of carcasses.Low temperatures slow the rate of these changes which in turn reduces color in...
