Thinking about Physicalism  [PDF]
Ricardo Restrepo
Open Journal of Philosophy (OJPP) , 2012, DOI: 10.4236/ojpp.2012.22012
Abstract: Physicalism, if it is to be a significant thesis, should differentiate itself from key metaphysical contenders which endorse the existence of platonic entities, emergent properties, Cartesian souls, angels, and God. Physicalism can never be true in worlds where things of these kinds exist. David Papineau, David Spurrett, and Barbara Montero have recently developed and defended two influential conceptions of physicalism. One is derived from a conception of the physical as the non-mentally-and-non-biologically identifiable. The other is derived from a conception of the physical as the non-sui-generis-mental. The paper looks at the resources available to those conceptions, but argues that each is insufficient to yield a conception of physicalism that differentiates it from key anti-physicalist positions. According to these conceptions, if we lived in a world full of things that clearly cannot be physical, we would still live in a physical world. Thus, such conceptions of physicalism are of little theoretical interest.
Two Myths of Psychophysical Reductionism  [PDF]
Ricardo Restrepo
Open Journal of Philosophy (OJPP) , 2012, DOI: 10.4236/ojpp.2012.22011
Abstract: This paper focuses on two prominent arguments claiming that physicalism entails reductionism. One is Kim’s causal exclusion argument (CEA), and the other is Papineau’s causal argument. The paper argues that Kim’s CEA is not logically valid and that it is driven by two implausible justifications. One is “Edward’s dictum”, which is alien to non-reductive physicalism and should be rejected. The other is by endorsement of Papineau’s conception of the physical, immanent in Papineau’s causal argument. This argument only arrives at the physical property-property identities by using a conception of the physical that licenses anything to be reductively physical, including putative core anti-physical entities; thus, leaving Papineau’s causal argument and Kim’s CEA without a reductive physicalist conclusion of philosophical interest.
Democratic Freedom of Expression  [PDF]
Ricardo Restrepo
Open Journal of Philosophy (OJPP) , 2013, DOI: 10.4236/ojpp.2013.33058
Abstract: This paper suggests the democratic direction in which the right of freedom of expression should be conceived and applied. In the first two sections it suggests some counter-examples to, and diagnoses of, the libertarian and liberal conceptions of freedom of expression, taking Scanlon (1972) and Scanlon (1979), respectively, to be their chief proponents. The paper suggests that these conceptions cannot take into account clear examples, like fraudulent propaganda, which should not be legal. The democratic conception takes it to heart that the pillars upon which the right of freedom of expression is founded are individual and collective autonomy, the right to know facts of public interest and information necessary for effective democratic control of government. The paper suggests that in a time when private powers seriously threaten these pillars, it is correct for the government to step in to provide the framework in which genuine discussion geared toward fulfilling the objectives of these pillars can take place.
Una lectura de lo real a través del punk
Restrepo Restrepo,Andrea;
Historia Crítica , 2005,
Abstract: this article analyzes the arrival and reception of the punk movement in the city of medellín . it takes its music, aesthetics, and symbolism as historical records in order to thus show the reality of a sector of the city's marginal youth during the 80s. it shows how neglect on the part of the state, the breakdown of traditional institutions, the levels of poverty, and the overwhelming violence in that decade led young people to seek new means of expression and socialization. in that context, certain youths sought an outlet in music. music permitted many of them to self-determine their lives and through it and its ideological content they renewed forms of political and social representation. in this sense, punk represents a cultural rupture that marks the establishment of a new path for excluded youths.

Immunosupression in liver transplant for hepatocellular carcinoma
Juan Carlos Restrepo Restrepo
Iatreia , 2007,
Abstract: The hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) has turned into a frequent indication for liver transplant. The reports of different series indicate that it represents at least 12% of all liver transplants in Europe. But what kind of inmunosuppression is better in these patients is an unanswered question. Our intension with this review is to give basic information to define which would be the best immunosuppression alternative. There is enough information on the relationship between immunosuppression and cancer, as it is seen in states of primary immunodeficiency or infection with the Human Immunodeficiency virus (HIV). The immune system offers a state of permanent guard to avoid the arousal of neoplasic diseases in immunocompetent patients and from this point of view it has been seen that in immunosuppressed patients there is an association with this condition and the development of lymphoproliferative disorders, which can range from reversible diseases (polyclonal proliferation of B type lymphocytes) to the development of a lymphoma and other types of tumors, like the ones observed in skin, genital region or oropharynx. Colon tumors and breast tumors have not been associated with immunosuppression. Immunosuppressive medication takes part in a different manner in the development of tumors, it has been said that steroids that are associated with some tumors, especially those regarding skin, paradoxically have a protective role in the development of lymph tissue tumors. It has been said about Azathioprine and Mycophenolate mofetil (MMF) that its immunosuppressive effect is an antiproliferative type of immunosuppression, inhibiting the synthesis of purinic nucleotides, especially in lymphocytes. Azathioprine has been involved in the development of hepatic tumors, especially in the era previous to the use of inhibitors of calcineurin like Cyclosporine (CsA), especially because in that time the dosage of this medication was very high. MMF has a more selective role by inhibiting the new synthesis of purines and in some cases it has been assigned the role of the antitumor agent basically because it stops the adhesion of the tumor cells to the vascular endothelium and so a tendency to diminish tumors in these patients has been described but it is unclear if this is due to less severe treatment regimens or because this association really is related to diminishing neoplasms. It has been reported that the inhibitors of calcineurin, either CsA or Tacrolimus (TAC), play an even more important role in the development of neoplasms, their immunosuppressive effect is given by the di
Un hombre con poliartritis, orejas inflamadas, esplenomegalia y diaforesis nocturna
Restrepo,Mauricio;
Acta Medica Colombiana , 2007,
Abstract: this a clinical case of a patient with chronic polyarthritis of the hands and feet, who also reported red eyes and recurrent painful inflamation of the ears, as well as a cervical mass, splenomegaly and diaphoresis during the night. the diagnosis of polycondritis was made associated to hematological neoplasia of the leukemia/lymphoma type, recurrent associated to chronic lymphoids. at the end, there is a list of some rheumatic manifestations of neoplastic disorders and special emphasis is placed on relapsing polychondritis as a possible para-neoplastic manifestation, highlighting that there are very few associations reported in the national and international literature between relapsing polychondritis and malignant lymphoma.
Grupos de interés y regulación ambiental en Colombia: el caso de los recursos hídricos
Restrepo,Medardo;
Lecturas de Economía , 2006,
Abstract: resorting to the menu auctions model developed by grossman" helpman (1994) and combining the interest groups models of aidt (1997 and 1998), fredriksson" gaston (2000) and becker (1983 and 1985) this article shows the effects that different interests have over the performance of the economic instrument (pollution tax) used in colombia for the control of pollution in water bodies. whenever differences exist among the influences of various interests different pollution levels will be obtained; which will be the best for the most influential groups but not so for society as a whole. only when influences are balanced the resulting pollution levels will approach those socially efficient.
ETNIZACIóN Y MULTICULTURALISMO EN EL BAJO ATRATO
RESTREPO,EDUARDO;
Revista Colombiana de Antropología , 2011,
Abstract: this article examines some of the effects of multiculturalism in a specific place: the lower atrato river in the colombian department of chocó. in order to do this i focus on the scope and reach of the process of ethnicization of 'black communities'. i highlight the performative effects that the legislation inspired by the multicultural turn -and which constituted 'black communities' as an ethnic group- has had on the colombian juridical and political imagination. i am more interested in examining the emergence of an ethnicization process in the lower atrato than in diagnosing the current organizational situation in the region, as well as of non-governmental interventions (both colombian and foreign) or state initiatives which are taking place today in response to international humanitarian law or to the return of displaced populations.
Las organizaciones y los métodos de su entendimiento*
