    Monotheism as a Political Problem: Political Islam and the Attack on Religious Equality and Freedom.Afshin Ellian - 2008 - Telos: Critical Theory of the Contemporary 2008 (145):87-102.
    The relation between religion and politics is a legal-philosophical theme that has once again come to the foreground, due primarily to the terrorist attacks of 9/11 and the ensuing international debate on the nature of Islam. Yet every discussion of Islam encounters the resistance of political correctness, which exercises an enormous pressure on academic freedom, often resulting in self-censorship. Philosophy does not have as its primary goal the establishment of world peace. Instead, it begins by asking questions and by analyzing (...)

  5. Weerbare democratie.Afshin Ellian & Bastiaan Rijpkema - 2017 - Ethische Perspectieven 27 (2):123-149.
    Hoe moet een democratie omgaan met antidemocraten, wat zijn de bedreigingen van de democratie, en hoe moeten die bedreigingen begrepen worden? Deze vragen staan centraal in het debat over weerbare democratie. Een discussie die aan actualiteit wint door de bedreigingen van religieus extremisme enerzijds en antirechtsstatelijke politieke partijen anderzijds. In dit artikel willen wij aantonen dat het debat over weerbare democratie verdiept kan worden door bestudering van het werk van Claude Lefort en Karl Popper. Het artikel is dan ook niet (...)

    Militant Democracy – Political Science, Law and Philosophy.Afshin Ellian & Bastiaan Rijpkema (eds.) - 2018 - Springer Verlag.
    This volume offers an up-to-date overview of the much-debated issue of how a democracy may defend itself against those who want to subvert it. The justifications, effectiveness and legal implications of militant democracy are discussed by addressing questions as: How can militant democracy measures such as party bans be justified? Why is it that some democracies ban antidemocratic parties? Does militant democracy succeed in combatting right-wing extremism? And is militant democracy evolving into an internationalized legal and political concept? Bringing together (...)

  9. A General Economy of Travel: Identity, Memory, and Death.Afshin Hafizi - 2011 - Upa.
    The central concern of this study is the basic question: what does it mean to travel? In order to understand this query, Hafizi places the discourse on travel within an economical framework and distinguishes between two interdependent forms: a restricted economy of travel and a general economy of travel.

    A New Introduction to Jurisprudence: Legality, Legitimacy and the Foundations of the Law.Paul Cliteur & Afshin Ellian - 2019 - London: Routledge.
    A New Introduction to Jurisprudence takes one of the central problems of law and jurisprudence as its point of departure: what is the law? Adopting an intermediate position between legal positivism and natural law, this book reflects on the concept of 'liberal democracy' or 'constitutional democracy'. In five chapters the book analyses: the idea of higher law, liberal democracy as a legitimate model for the state, the separation of church and state or secularism as essential for the democratic state, the (...)

    Double-Slit Interference Pattern for a Macroscopic Quantum System.Hamid Reza Naeij & Afshin Shafiee - 2016 - Foundations of Physics 46 (12):1634-1648.
    In this study, we solve analytically the Schrödinger equation for a macroscopic quantum oscillator as a central system coupled to two environmental micro-oscillating particles. Then, the double-slit interference patterns are investigated in two limiting cases, considering the limits of uncertainty in the position probability distribution. Moreover, we analyze the interference patterns based on a recent proposal called stochastic electrodynamics with spin. Our results show that when the quantum character of the macro-system is decreased, the diffraction pattern becomes more similar to (...)

    “It From Bit” and Quantum Mechanics.Ali Barzegar, Afshin Shafiee & Mostafa Taqavi - 2020 - Foundations of Science 25 (2):375-384.
    John Archibald Wheeler is one of the staunchest advocates of the idea that information is more fundamental than anything else in physics. In this paper, we examine the status of this idea summarized in Wheeler’s slogan ‘it from bit’ in the context of Bohmian Mechanics and spontaneous collapse models. We will argue that any question about the status of ‘it from bit’ crucially depends on the particular interpretation of these theories one favors.

    Objective Information in the Empiricist View of von Weizsäcker.Iman Khatam & Afshin Shafiee - 2014 - Foundations of Science 19 (3):241-255.
    We analyze von Weizsäcker’s view regarding the concept of information in physics. In his view, information arises from the reduction of properties of a physical object to their logical descriptive propositions. The smallest element of a lattice of propositions is an atom of information which is considered as the essence of every physical identity including position space. von Weizsäcker calls this element, “ur”. Moreover, Biological evolution is described in terms of enhancement of the variety of forms. Form could be also (...)

  15. The Additive Structure of Integers with the Lower Wythoff Sequence.Mohsen Khani & Afshin Zarei - forthcoming - Archive for Mathematical Logic:1-13.
    We have provided a model-theoretic proof for the decidability of the additive structure of integers together with the function f mapping x to \ where \ is the golden ratio.

    A Unified Power Quality Conditioner for Feeder Reconfiguration and Setting to Minimize the Power Loss and Improve Voltage Profile.Zhigao Huang, Farid Shahbaazy & Afshin Davarpanah - 2022 - Complexity 2022:1-8.
    Using devices such as unified power quality conditioners in distribution networks seems essential for higher electricity quality. Moreover, distribution network reconfiguration is a suitable model for improving network characteristics, including loss reduction and voltage increase for distribution networks, and is widely used in this era. Here, the study discusses the rechanging of distribution networks for UPQC via proposing an appropriate model for it. In addition to the optimum structure of distribution networks, the most appropriate branch where UPQC must be located (...)

    Zeilinger on Information and Reality.Ali Barzegar, Mostafa Taqavi & Afshin Shafiee - 2021 - Foundations of Science 26 (4):1007-1019.
    According to Zeilinger’s information interpretation of quantum mechanics ‘the distinction between reality and our knowledge of reality, between reality and information, cannot be made. They are in a deep sense indistinguishable’. This is what we call Zeilinger’s thesis. This thesis has been criticized as a lapse into ‘informational immaterialism’ and amounting to nothing more than a tautology. However, we will argue that this criticism is based on a pre-Kantian view of reality, namely metaphysical realism which could be questioned on the (...)

    Virtual Reality and Eye-Tracking Assessment, and Treatment of Unilateral Spatial Neglect: Systematic Review and Future Prospects.Alexander Pilgaard Kaiser, Kristian Westergaard Villadsen, Afshin Samani, Hendrik Knoche & Lars Evald - 2022 - Frontiers in Psychology 13.
    Unilateral spatial neglect is a disorder characterized by the failure to report, respond to, or orient toward the contralateral side of space to a brain lesion. Current assessment methods often fail to discover milder forms, cannot differentiate between unilateral spatial neglect subtypes and lack ecological validity. There is also a need for treatment methods that target subtypes. Immersive virtual reality systems in combination with eye-tracking have the potential to overcome these shortcomings, by providing more naturalistic environments and tasks, with sensitive (...)

    Lecture-Based Versus Problem-Based Learning in Ethics Education Among Nursing Students.Mahnaz Khatiban, Seyede Nayereh Falahan, Roya Amini, Afshin Farahanchi & Alireza Soltanian - 2019 - Nursing Ethics 26 (6):1753-1764.
    Background: Moral reasoning is a vital skill in the nursing profession. Teaching moral reasoning to students is necessary toward promoting nursing ethics. Objectives: The aim of this study was to compare the effectiveness of problem-based learning and lecture-based methods in ethics education in improving moral decision-making, moral reasoning, moral development, and practical reasoning among nursing students. Research design: This is a repeated measurement quasi-experimental study. Participants and research context: The participants were nursing students in a University of Medical Sciences in (...)
