Systemic Complications of Complex Regional Pain Syndrome  [PDF]
Robert J. Schwartzman
Neuroscience & Medicine (NM) , 2012, DOI: 10.4236/nm.2012.33027
Abstract: Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS) is a neuropathic pain disorder that is characterized by: 1) Severe pain beyond the area of injury; 2) Autonomic dysregulation; 3) Neuropathic edema; 4) A movement disorder, atrophy and dystrophy. It is most often caused by a fracture, soft-tissue injury or surgical procedure and is divided into Type I, in which no nerve lesion is identified (classic reflex sympathetic dystrophy), and Type II where a specific nerve has been damaged (causalgia). In addition to the peripheral manifestations, there are many internal medical complications whose etiology is often not appreciated. This article will examine how CRPS affects the systems of: cognition; constitutional, cardiac, and respiratory complications; systemic autonomic dysregulation; neurogenic edema; musculoskeletal, endocrine and dermatological manifestations; as well as urological and gastrointestinal function.
A universidade primeira do Brasil: entre intelligentsia, padr?o internacional e inclus?o social
Schwartzman, Simon;
Estudos Avan?ados , 2006, DOI: 10.1590/S0103-40142006000100012
Abstract: the university of s?o paulo is brazil's leading academic institution in research and graduate education, with an academic production comparable to that of several world class universities according to international analysts. however, it is relatively unknown outside brazil. this paper examines the reasons for this provincialism and debates whether the university of s?o paulo could or should strive to become a world class university and, if so, what are the requirements.
Educa??o básica no Brasil: a agenda da modernidade
Schwartzman, Simon;
Estudos Avan?ados , 1991, DOI: 10.1590/S0103-40141991000300003
Abstract: this article discusses the concepts of "modernity" and "post-modernity", and rejects the notion that the agenda of modernity, linked to the notions of progress, education and scientific development, is exhausted. brazil still has a modernization agenda to fulfill, which depends on its ability to solve the problems of basic education of its population. to do this, a fresh understanding of how to approach basic education is needed, requiring a new approach to traditional questions such as the role of the public and private sectors, the links between schools and the communities, pedagogical methods and questions of content, which are discussed in the text.
Equity, quality and relevance in higher education in Brazil
Schwartzman, Simon;
Anais da Academia Brasileira de Ciências , 2004, DOI: 10.1590/S0001-37652004000100015
Abstract: brazilian higher education has doubled its size in the 1990s, going from 1.5 million to more than 3 million students in the period. this expansion was mostly due to the growth of private education, which, in 2002, accounted for about two thirds of the enrollment. is expansion making higher education more accessible to persons coming from the poorer segments of society? is the quality of higher education suffering by the speed of this expansion? is brazil educating enough qualified persons to attend to the country's needs to participate in the new, knowledge-intensive and global economy? what public policies should be implemented, in order to foster the values of social equity and relevance? what are the policy implications of these developments? this article looks at the available evidence, and suggests some answers to these questions.
A sociologia como profiss?o pública no Brasil
Schwartzman, Simon;
Caderno CRH , 2009, DOI: 10.1590/S0103-49792009000200005
Abstract: it is notable how, in the last decades, brazilian sociology grew and evolved, and aquired many of the characteristics of a profession. two questions, however, come from this process. the first is the nature of this professionalization - if it approaches the traditional model of the "educated professions", as medicine or law, or if it approaches what is called today an "academic profession". the second one is the measure, in this professionalization process, in which sociology would have lost or not its role as a "public profession", and the sociologists, their intellectual role. and thus to a third question, that is the pertinence or not of expecting sociology to have and maintain this characteristic of public profession.
Atualidade de Raymundo Faoro
Schwartzman, Simon;
Dados , 2003, DOI: 10.1590/S0011-52582003000200001
Abstract: raymundo faoro, deceased in 2003, was one of the pioneers in the use of max weber's sociology for interpreting the formation of the brazilian political system. in os donos do poder (the owners of power), first published in 1958, faoro launched the thesis that ever since its colonial period brazil has always been dominated by a ''bureaucratic stratum'' with its origins in the peculiar characteristics of the portuguese state, thus contradicting the previously dominant view that brazil had experienced a feudal past dominated by traditional rural power. he thus opened the way for the brazilian political system to be studied and interpreted in terms of its own political and institutional variables and no longer merely in terms of class interests and conflicts. however, according to faoro, this domination by the bureaucratic stratum was a perennial, immutable characteristic of brazil, a view that ended up limiting his analyses, even as he became an activist against all forms of brazilian authoritarianism.

Simon Schwartzman
Revista Brasileira de Inova??o , 2002,
Abstract: This essay summarizes the main conclusion of a research project that examined therelationships between science and technology and the public interest in Brazil, in the areas ofagriculture, environment, pharmaceutical research and the social sciences – labor and education.The main proposition is that, in developing countries, the main potential partner and user ofresearch-based knowledge is not the private, but the public sector. The partnership betweenresearch institutions and public agencies requires new ways of organizing both the research andthe science policy institutions, in order to increase their social usefulness and to preserve thefreedom and quality standards which are essential in any scientific and technological endeavor.

Equity, quality and relevance in higher education in Brazil
Schwartzman Simon
Anais da Academia Brasileira de Ciências , 2004,
Abstract: Brazilian higher education has doubled its size in the 1990s, going from 1.5 million to more than 3 million students in the period. This expansion was mostly due to the growth of private education, which, in 2002, accounted for about two thirds of the enrollment. Is expansion making higher education more accessible to persons coming from the poorer segments of society? Is the quality of higher education suffering by the speed of this expansion? Is Brazil educating enough qualified persons to attend to the country's needs to participate in the new, knowledge-intensive and global economy? What public policies should be implemented, in order to foster the values of social equity and relevance? What are the policy implications of these developments? This article looks at the available evidence, and suggests some answers to these questions.
