Al Ghazali and Hume on causation and miracles  [cached]
Sedat Yaz?c?
International Journal of Human Sciences , 2010,
Abstract: This paper is an attempt to show the similarities and differences between Al Ghazali and Hume on causation and miracles. Such a comparison is interesting because, long before Hume, the issue of necessary causality had been taken up by the Islamic philosophers Al Ghazal in his book The Incoherence the Philosophers. Although Ghazali's and Hume's views on causation are strikingly parallel to one another in their empirical contention, there are still some differences to be noted. First, both reject the view that the connection between causes and effects is of logical necessity. However, to give an ultimate reason for the theory of causality, unlike Hume, Ghazali makes a reference to God. For Hume, we cannot give an ultimate justification for the theory of causality. Second, while Ghazali aimed to reject the necessary causality in order to account for the occurrence of miracles, Hume, on the contrary, used his theory of causality to reject the claim that miracle can occur. In particular, I argue whether Hume's position allows logical possibility of the occurrence of miracle.

Abstract: El objetivo de este trabajo es discutir la "doctrina kasb" o "doctrina de la adquisición", formulada por uno de los sectores teológicos más importantes del Islam, i.e., los asharíes. Dicha doctrina plantea una cuestión compleja: quién es el verdadero agente de las acciones humanas? Es el ser humano o Dios? El asharí más renombrado que intenta resolver estas cuestiones es al-Ghazali. Después de explicar cuán problemática es la doctrina de la adquisición, analizaré los argumentos de Averroes en la Inconsistencia de la inconsistencia, con la finalidad de encontrar si verdaderamente refutan el determinismo asharí.

Agricultural Credit in the Pre and Post Reform Periods - A Case Study
Indian Streams Research Journal , 2012,
Abstract: Credit plays an important role in agricultural production. It capitalizes farmers and entrepreneurs to undertake new investment. The investment in agriculture as percentage of GDP also declined from 1.6 per cent in 1993-94 to 1.3 per cent in 2000-01. Hence the main aim of the study is to find out the credit flow of agriculture in the pre and post liberalization periods, for this sector-wise flow of credit from period 1983-2005 taken for the study in Tamil Nadu as well as Tiruchirappalli district. It has been found out that the annual average growth rate of agriculture credit is low compare to other sectors in the reform periods in Tiruchirappalli district and Tamil Nadu state. This study suggests to improving the credit flow to agriculture.

It also delineates the two major problems of modern sociology, mainly, lack of universality and lack of applicability due to elemental mistake in the data of human behaviour and its Western value orientation. Using both comparative and analytical methods, the researcher makes his case for the necessity of drawing an Islamic perspective on sociology. Through the application of juristic principle of maslahah from three aspects, from the aspect of provision of material source, introduction of universal values and the endowing of purpose to corpus of sociological knowledge.

Abstract: This study was carried out to provide empirical evidence on the growth rates of maize production in three sub - periods in Nigeria namely pre - Structural Adjustment Programme period, Structural Adjustment Program period and post - Structural Adjustment Programme period. Secondary data on maize production in Nigeria during the Pre - Structural Adjustment Programme period (1970 to 1985), Structural Adjustment period (1986 to 1994) and post - Structural Adjustment Programme period (1995 to 2007) were employed in this study. A growth rate model was used to estimate the growth rates of maize in the three sub - periods. The results of the analysis showed that the instantaneous growth rates of maize production are - 0.1%, 5.7% and 2.4% and the compound rates of growth of maize production are - 0.001%, 0.059% and 0.024% for the pre - Structural Adjustment Programme, Structural Adjustment Programme and post - Structural Adjustment Programme periods respectively. The higher compound growth rate of maize production in the Structural Adjustment Programme period implies that the policy reforms in the period was more effective in ensuring increased growth of maize production over that of other periods in Nigeria. Therefore, despite the myriads of problems associated with the programme in Nigeria, it was beneficial to maize production in Nigeria.
Effects of storage conditions and pre-chilling periods on germinability of Pinus ponderosa seeds from Patagonia, Argentina: preliminary study

Bosque (Valdivia) , 2012, DOI: 10.4067/S0717-92002012000100012
Abstract: in argentinean patagonia, ponderosa pine seeds (pinus ponderosa) are collected in good production years, stored at ambient conditions, and used thereafter for seedling production. however, information about the effects of conditions and periods of storage on seed quality is scarce. the objectives of this study were: a) to evaluate germination percentage (gp) and germination energy (ge), of ponderosa pine seeds recently collected, and after three and four years of storage in plastic boxes at ambient conditions, and b) to determine if different pre-chilling periods might influence gp and ge as a function of storage time. part of a seed lot, collected in 2000 in a mesic site near the town of trevelin in patagonia, was used to determine moisture content, gp and ge (using 21-days pre-chilling). another part of that seed lot, stored at ambient conditions for three and four years, was subjected to pre-chilling for 21, 40 and 60 days. following 21-days pre-chilling, ge was 34 % and 14 % after three and four years of storage, respectively. pre-chilling periods of 40 and 60 days increased ge to 62 % and 59 % for seeds stored for three and four years, respectively. gp was maintained at ca 69 % over the four years of storage with a seed moisture content of 7 %. patagonian nurseries could store their own harvested seed under the conditions established in this study without significant loss of seed viability.
