Empirical research on the relationship between temporality and causation is mostly dominated by the question of how temporal information constrains causal cognition. However, Bechlivanidis and Lagnado (2013, Psychol. Sci., 24, 1563–1572; 2016, Cognition, 146, 58–66) recently claimed to have discovered the ‘reordering effect’, in which causal beliefs have an influence on perception of temporal order. This paper argues for an attentional interpretation of this effect and suggests a solution to the circularity that arises from the mutual constraint between causal assumptions and perception of temporal order. Finally, it is shown how the reordering effect may challenge certain philosophical accounts of temporal illusions.
The identity and evolutionary relationships of the genus
Rhyssocolpus are analysed and discussed using an
integrative approach including morphological data and partial SSU-rDNA
sequences. An Iberian population of R. iuventutis is
characterised in detail, providing the first SEM observations of the genus. New
sequences of the genera Enchodelus and
Rhyssocolpus are provided for comparative purposes. Both
morphological and molecular evidence support a separate status for the
aforementioned two genera and Heterodorus, of which the latter
and Rhyssocolpus shared a recent common ancestor, whereas
Enchodelus did not, as had been traditionally assumed,
occupy a close position. The Nordiidae is confirmed to be an artificial taxon.
The taxonomy of Rhyssocolpus is revised and an emended
diagnosis, updated list of species, key to their identification and compendium
of their morphometrics are provided. Some nomenclatorial changes are also
proposed: R. alleni and R. paradoxus are
retained under Eudorylaimus, their original genus, whereas
R. brasiliensis is transferred to
Eudorylaimus as E. brasiliensis (Meyl,
1956) comb. n.
In this book we aim to discuss and reflect on how HEIs are coping with the demands placed on them and how the various dimensions of change are intertwined. In particular, we aim to discuss the following questions:
How do governance regimes steer higher education institutions? This part of the book focuses its attention on how higher education and research institutions operate under different governance regimes at international, regional and national levels, and how that context shapes governance and management arrangements at institutional level.
How are institutions managing their quality and performance? This part deals with the systems institutions are developing to manage their quality and their wider performance to cope with the internal and external forces pressing them to constantly improve their levels of quality and wider performance in teaching, research and third mission.
How are higher education professionals responding to the transformations? This part is devoted to investigate the ways academic and non-academic professionals working in higher education and research institutions respond to the transformations occurring in their organisations, and changes in practices and functions performed by those working in higher education. It also explores the implication of higher education transformations on students.
