Civil Rights Tourism in Mississippi: Openings, Closures, Redemption and Remuneration  [PDF]
Ronald Loewe
Sociology Mind (SM) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/sm.2014.41011
Abstract:

Unlike Georgia and Alabama which have had large civil rights museums for many years, Mississippi is just beginning to acknowledge and memorialize this part of its history. Since 2005, visitors to Neshoba County, infamous for the murder of civil rights workers Goodman, Schwerner and Chaney, have been able to obtain copies of the African-American Heritage Driving Tour which directs tourists to nine points of interest associated with the 1964 killings. In examining this development, my aim is to highlight the diverse political, economic and psychological motives underlying civil rights tourism and the formation of the Philadelphia Coalition which came together to commemorate the 40th anniversary of the murders. In specific, this paper argues that civil rights tourism rests on four convergent trends: 1) the interest of the business community in re-imaging Mississippi, 2) the formation of a fragile alliance between white conservatives and moderate African-American leaders, 3) the search for redemption among white Christians, and 4) a growing concern over who will write Mississippi’s recent history.

A framework for evolutionary systems biology
Laurence Loewe
BMC Systems Biology , 2009, DOI: 10.1186/1752-0509-3-27
Abstract: Here I propose a novel framework that brings together evolutionary theory and current systems biology approaches in order to quantify small effects of mutations and their epistatic interactions in silico. Central to this approach is the definition of fitness correlates that can be computed in some current systems biology models employing the rigorous algorithms that are at the core of much work in computational systems biology. The framework exploits synergies between the realism of such models and the need to understand real systems in evolutionary theory. This framework can address many longstanding topics in evolutionary biology by defining various 'levels' of the adaptive landscape. Addressed topics include the distribution of mutational effects on fitness, as well as the nature of advantageous mutations, epistasis and robustness. Combining corresponding parameter estimates with population genetics models raises the possibility of testing evolutionary hypotheses at a new level of realism.EvoSysBio is expected to lead to a more detailed understanding of the fundamental principles of life by combining knowledge about well-known biological systems from several disciplines. This will benefit both evolutionary theory and current systems biology. Understanding robustness by analysing distributions of mutational effects and epistasis is pivotal for drug design, cancer research, responsible genetic engineering in synthetic biology and many other practical applications.Mutations with weak effects on fitness that interact with each other are of great interest to evolutionary genetics and genomics, as their long-term consequences are much harder to predict than those of mutations with large effects. These mutations with small effects are also much more frequent [1,2]. Systems biology has accumulated much data on mutations with relatively large effects by using experimental methods and theoretical tools like flux balance analysis, which analyses the flux of metabolites in b
Los derechos humanos y el derecho de gentes de John Rawls
Loewe,Daniel;
EPISTEME , 2009,
Abstract: according to this paper, the arguments for the inclusion of the human rights principle in rawls? right of peoples contradict the minimalist character of his doctrine concerning international relations. rawls? aspiration (i.e.; ensuring a wider acceptance for his theory by considering the decent hierarchical societies as regular members with the same status as the liberal societies) has a weakening effect on the moral-political demands in an inacceptable way from the perspective of the political liberalism.
INMIGRACIóN Y EL DERECHO DE GENTES DE JOHN RAWLS: ARGUMENTOS A FAVOR DE UN DERECHO A MOVIMIENTO SIN FRONTERAS
Loewe,Daniel;
Revista de ciencia política (Santiago) , 2007, DOI: 10.4067/S0718-090X2007000300002
Abstract: according to a cosmopolitan interpretation of rawls's theory of justice this article proposes a global conception of equality of opportunities and, as part of it, a right to mobility without borders (mwb). the research presented below shows that rawls's arguments against the idea of global justice and a right to immigrate articulated both in his domestic theory of justice and his theory of international relations are not convincing and do not speak against a right of mwb
Liberalismo igualitario e igualitarismo orientado al bienestar: las demandas de las minorías culturales
Loewe, Daniel;
Signos filosóficos , 2008,
Abstract: this paper is a closer examination of the possibility to justify cultural rights in (a) a liberal egalitarian theoretical framework that defines the equalitarian metric according to a conception of primary goods and in (b) a framework regarding the access to individual welfare. as a result we can see that this justification is not possible in the first framework but it is in the second. nevertheless this justification is object of criticism.
El enfoque en las capacidades y las demandas por derechos culturales
Loewe, Daniel;
Signos filosóficos , 2009,
Abstract: this paper investigates the justification of cultural rights in the framework of the capabilities approach. in principle this approach does not oppose to this justification, but it establishes significant restrictions for this justification, and correspondingly it is not compatible with the multicultural claims.

INMIGRACIóN Y EL DERECHO DE GENTES DE JOHN RAWLS: ARGUMENTOS A FAVOR DE UN DERECHO A MOVIMIENTO SIN FRONTERAS Immigration and John Rawls'Law of Peoples: Arguments for a Right to Mobility without Borders
Daniel Loewe
Revista de Ciencia Política , 2007,
Abstract: Siguiendo una interpretación cosmopolita de la teoría de justicia de Rawls el artículo propone una concepción de igualdad de oportunidades global y, como parte deésta, un derecho a movimiento sin fronteras (MSF). De acuerdo a esta investigación los argumentos que Rawls articula tanto en su teoría de justicia doméstica como en su teoría de relaciones internacionales contra la idea de la justicia global y contra un derecho a inmigración no son convincentes, y una interpretación coherente de su teoría no se opone a un derecho a MSF According to a cosmopolitan interpretation of Rawls's theory of justice this article proposes a global conception of equality of opportunities and, as part of it, a right to mobility without borders (MWB). The research presented below shows that Rawls's arguments against the idea of global justice and a right to immigrate articulated both in his domestic theory of justice and his theory of international relations are not convincing and do not speak against a right of MWB
Igualdad de oportunidades y pertenencia cultural
Loewe, Daniel
Veritas , 2007,
Abstract: Este testo procede à critica dos intentos de justifica o das demandas multiculturais que recorrem à igualdade de oportunidades argumentando que a disponilbilidade de uma oportunidade está determinada pela perten a cultural. This text aims at the critique of attempts to justify multicultural claims that resort to the equality of opportunities, by arguing that the availability of an opportunity is determined by cultural belonging.
Inclusión de animales no-humanos en un marco de argumentación teórico contractual
Loewe, Daniel
Veritas , 2008,
Abstract: O artigo investiga a possibilidade de justificar direitos dos animais dentro de um marco de argumenta o contratualista. De acordo com a tese defendida, esta justifica o é possível se a teoria contratualista requerida se destingue das tradicionais e se modifica nos modos relevantes. The article investigates the possibility of justifying animal rights within a contractarian framework of argumentation. According to the thesis developed in this paper, this justification is possible if the underlying contractarian theory is distinguished from the traditional theories and modified in relevant ways.
