Abstract [en]

According to the Italian philosopher Antonio Rosmini (1797-1855), being is an innate idea that is requisite for contemplating anything. He emphatically claims that it is the one and only innate idea. Rosmini makes a sharp distinction between sensations and perceptions. Perceptions are thought to arise when the undetermined idea of being (tantamount to possibility) is combined with sensations, universals when being is combined with perceptions. It is argued here that Rosmini’s explanation of the origin of universals does not work. If the idea of being is regarded as innate, then several others should be similarly regarded, notably the idea of qualitative identity which is an idea necessary for deriving universals.  Although Rosmini holds that certain properties are necessarily present in real objects and therefore implicit in the idea of being, the property of being qualitatively identical with something else is not among those properties. Theological motives may have encouraged  Rosmini to emphasize being as a peculiarly fundamental idea. However, if the idea of being is more fundamental than other universals, it may be regarded so in virtue of its generality,  not because it has a uniquely innate character.

Abstract [en]

Berkeley's 'esse is percipi' has been criticized for implying epistemological solipsism, the main argument being that different minds cannot harbor numerically one and the same idea. Similarly, C. J. Boström, the dominating Swedish philosopher in the 19th century, was early scorned because his principle of esse est percipi allegedly contradicts the simultaneous claim that two spirits (God and a human, or two humans) can perceive the same thing under qualitatively different appearances. Whereas the criticism against Berkeley is here regarded as valid, it is argued that Boström successfully defended himself by employing a dual concept of meaning, resembling Frege's Sinn and Bedeutung some thirty years later, and by postulating an ontology that permits human minds to share in the divine ideas that constitute reality.

According to a U.S. court ruling, intelligent design (ID) theory is religious in nature, not scientific, and must not be taught in schools. In opposition, Fuller argues for a closer rapport between science and religion. Here it is emphasized that any allegedly scientific conclusion from design in nature to the existence of God is a hypothesis subject to the same quality norms as empirical hypotheses in general. By quotations from his Iter Lapponicum, Linnaeus is summoned in support of a strictly immanent conception of science, against Fuller's suggestion that Linnaeus' personal piety could be a reason for considering ID scientific.

Abstract [en]

The health theories of Nordenfelt and Boorse are compared. Critical attention is focused on Nordenfelt's description of his theory as one of holistic welfare, contrasting with Boorse's analytical and statistical approach. Neither theory is found to give an entirely satisfactory account of 'health' in scientific medicine or common usage. Because Nordenfelt attenuates the ontological significance of organs and organ parts and simplifies the role of statistics, his theory is regarded as weakly holistic. Boorse underrates the importance of non-statistical evaluation. A mediating position, termed 'strong holism' is suggested as a way of integrating normative and statistical elements in a more adequate health concept.

Abstract [en]

Tyrosine hydroxylase (TH) is co-expressed with islet hormones in the fetal mouse pancreas. In the adult animal, the enzyme has been considered as a marker of ageing beta-cells. By immunohistochemical staining, we analyzed the expression of TH-like immunoreactivity (TH-LI), insulin-LI (INS-LI) and somatostatin-LI (SOM-LI) in adult mouse islets, in situ and after isolation and transplantation to kidney. In pancreas in situ, most TH-LI cells expressed INS-LI while less than 5% expressed SOM-LI. The total number of TH-LI cells/mm2 was significantly increased directly after isolation and in 0-day, 12-week and 52-week old grafts, but not in 3-day grafts. The proportion of TH-LI cells expressing SOM-LI increased after transplantation, amounting to about one-third by 52 weeks. As expressed per unit islet area, the frequencies of both TH/INS and TH/SOM cells increased significantly in the transplants. The results demonstrate that TH occurs in both beta-cells and D-cells of adult islets. In both cell types the enzyme appears to be responsive to the microenvironmental changes inherent in transplantation. This cellular phenotype plasticity might contribute to the altered insulin secretory dynamics in islet grafts.

Abstract [en]

Mouse islets cultured for 1 or 4 days with or without 10 nM vasoactive intestinal polypeptide (VIP) were stained for tyrosine hydroxylase (TH) and examined for insulin secretion during culture and in a postculture perifusion system. Exposure to exogenous VIP for 4 days increased the frequency of islet cells expressing TH-like immunoreactivity. Regardless of the culturing conditions, the islets exhibited significant insulin secretory responses to 16.7 mM glucose, the effect being potentiated by 10 nM VIP in the perifusion medium. The insulin-releasing action of glucose and the potentiating effect of VIP were less pronounced in islets cultured for 1 day with VIP than in islets cultured without this neuropeptide. The following conclusions are suggested: (a) VIP stimulates the expression of TH in mouse islet cells; (b) the latency of the VIP-induced TH is a postreceptor phenomenon; (c) islet cultures exposed to VIP represent a new instance of the association between increased functional demands on beta cells and enhanced expression of TH and a new instance of VIP having trophic effects.
