Cultural Politics in the Third World

Mehran Kamrava, "Cultural Politics in the Third World"
R-ge | ISBN: 1857282655 | 1999 | PDF | 182 pages | 1,02 mb

Cultural Politics in the Third World examines the subtle and multi-faceted relationship between culture and politics in developing countries. The book cautions against both politically reductionist examinations of culture as well as culturally reductionist examinations of politics.

Embracing Indigenous Knowledge in Science and Medical Teaching

Embracing Indigenous Knowledge in Science and Medical Teaching by Mariana Hewson
English | 29 Sept. 2014 | ISBN: 9401792992 | 165 Pages | PDF | 3 MB

The focus of the book is on different ways of knowing: the western scientific way (reductionist, dualistic and materialist) versus the indigenous approach (holistic, non-dualistic, and spiritual).
Holistic Darwinism: Synergy, Cybernetics, and the Bioeconomics of Evolution (repost)

Holistic Darwinism: Synergy, Cybernetics, and the Bioeconomics of Evolution by Peter A Corning
English | 13 Dec. 2005 | ISBN: 0226116166 | 504 Pages | PDF | 2 MB

In recent years, evolutionary theorists have come to recognize that the reductionist, individualist, gene-centered approach to evolution cannot sufficiently account for the emergence of complex biological systems over time. Peter A. Corning has been at the forefront of a new generation of complexity theorists who have been working to reshape the foundations of evolutionary theory.
C. elegans: Methods and Applications (Methods in Molecular Biology)  [Repost]

C. elegans: Methods and Applications (Methods in Molecular Biology) by Kevin Strange
English | 15 Aug. 2006 | ISBN: 1588295974 | 308 Pages | PDF | 4 MB

Molecular biology has driven a powerful reductionist, or "molecule-c- tric," approach to biological research in the last half of the 20th century. Red- tionism is the attempt to explain complex phenomena by defining the functional properties of the individual components of the system.
5th International Conference on Practical Applications of Computational Biology & Bioinformatics

5th International Conference on Practical Applications of Computational Biology & Bioinformatics (Advances in Intelligent and Soft Computing) by Miguel P. Rocha
English | Mar 4, 2011 | ISBN: 3642199135 | 400 Pages | PDF | 13 MB

The growth in the Bioinformatics and Computational Biology fields over the last few years has been remarkable and the trend is to increase its pace. In fact, the need for computational techniques that can efficiently handle the huge amounts of data produced by the new experimental techniques in Biology is still increasing driven by new advances in Next Generation Sequencing, several types of the so called omics data and image acquisition, just to name a few. The analysis of the datasets that produces and its integration call for new algorithms and approaches from fields such as Databases, Statistics, Data Mining, Machine Learning, Optimization, Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence. Within this scenario of increasing data availability, Systems Biology has also been emerging as an alternative to the reductionist view that dominated biological research in the last decades.
2nd International Workshop on Practical Applications of Computational Biology and Bioinformatics

2nd International Workshop on Practical Applications of Computational Biology and Bioinformatics (IWPACBB 2008) (Advances in Intelligent and Soft Computing) by Juan Manuel Corchado RodrГ­guez
English | October 10, 2008 | ISBN: 3540858601 | 254 pages | PDF | 5 MB

The success of Bioinformatics in recent years has been prompted by research in mole- lar biology and medicine in initiatives like the human genome project. The volume and diversification of data has increased so much that it is very hard if not impossible to analyze it by human experts. The analysis of this growing body of data, intensified by the development of a number of high-throughput experimental techniques that are generating the so called 'omics' data, has prompted for new computational methods. New global approaches, such as Systems Biology, have been emerging replacing the reductionist view that dominated biology research in the last decades, requiring the coordinated efforts of biological researchers with those related to data analysis, mathematical modelling and computer science.
