Opinions expressed in signed articles are those of the authors and do not necessarily reflect the views of the Director-General of Unesco. Permission is granted for quotation or reproduction from the contents of this Bulletin provided acknowledgement is m a d e and a copy of the book or the journal is sent to Unesco. II NO. Walter H. It is the gradually accumulated heritage of centuries — what the mind has learnt by turning in upon itself and by contemplating the outer world.

It is that storehouse of beliefs and aspirations, inventions and techniques, facts and hypotheses, upon which m a n draws to give shape and form to the world around him. Above all, however, it is the welding of all this experience into an organic whole — a process that m a n , by contemplating himself, strives to bring about. It is in this sense that "culture" must be regarded as one of the basic ideas underlying Unesco's mission. T h e world of today is united physically, but is not yet united psychologically.

Divisions still, inevitably, m a k e themselves felt. M e n and nations develop in increasingly different ways which, though they cannot be said to be inadmissible, do in fact contribute to the present universal lack of balance. This being so, one cannot over-stress the importance of bringing about closer contact between the intellectual leaders of the world, through collabo- ration between the m e n of learning of the various countries.

T h e only basis for the ideal of unity is a sense of "world kinship", and this can only come about if the peoples can exchange their ideas and gain a true appreci- ation of their various cultural traditions. This is one of the tasks to which Unesco is bending its efforts. Therefore, while it must be the aim of our o w n generation to establish a truly international order, this can only be achieved if, as a first step, w e fully understand the nature of the various national entities.

This, unless w e are adequately prepared for it, is often difficult of achievement ; hence the need for facilitating and increasing intellectual interchange and for disseminating every type of knowledge, both in order to promote mutual esteem between nations and to develop that sense of h u m a n solidarity which is one of the essential features of culture.

Hence, too, the part that it falls to the social sciences to play, a part whose importance is daily becoming more clearly recognized. Italy's contribution to the world's culture — whether w e think of Ancient R o m e or of the modern civilization dating from the Renaissance — is well enough known for it to be unnecessary to underline its tremendous influence.

All the same, perhaps, there was a danger that the very magnificence of arts and letters in Italy might put the historical and social sciences, unmeritedly, in the shade. All the Latin nations have, indeed, passed through experiences that have often militated against the full development of the social sciences.

Periods of faith have been, and still are, followed by periods of scepticism. A balance has not yet been achieved, and the social movement , like all world movements, is subject to the rhythm of evolution positive, constructive periods being followed by periods of crisis and criticism. Criticism, of course, has a fairly easy task w h e n it sets to work on systems that eschew the symbols, laws and tests of mathematics, but the quality of the works that such systems produce is enhanced if they are fewer and far between.

Social science is, from certain points of view, a science of observation; it observes the phenomena of the social world. It must, therefore, use the methods of the exact sciences. In regard to each fact, for instance, it must accept only direct evidence; it must distrust preconceived systems, use the process of analysis to separate out the various factors, and carefully refrain from offering any explanations as to the ultimate destiny of any particular society; for these problems are in the highest degree complicated and obscure.

Since it is the business of social studies to adjust the various similarities and differences between m e n , it follows that social science cannot disregard certain social facts merely because they are in contradiction with one another. It must accept the existence of such contradictory facts, like those of good and evil, blind faith and a critical outlook, authority and freedom, and so forth.

It must accustom itself to the idea that they are the constituent elements of a certain state of balance, and that they are all, perhaps, indis- pensable.

T h e impractibility of formulating any laws that could be applied to social facts as a whole impelled certain cultivated circles in Italy, led by G. Gentile, to adopt an attitude of reserve, and even to deny that this allegedly positive body of knowledge was worthy of the n a m e of "science".

They were concerned, similarly, to show that economic science was not in fact a "science", precisely because it was incapable of formulating any laws. Nevertheless, Italy's contribution in the field of the social sciences is in m a n y respects a remarkable one.

Admittedly, the totalitarian regime of Fascism helped to create an atmosphere unfavourable to the social sciences. Fascism probably feared that those sciences would succeed in discovering the anti-social aspects of its regime.

T h e re-establishment of democracy, however, under which the minds of the people are n o w being freed, will no doubt restore interest in an objective study of the social sciences; and there is reason to hope that the specialists of the new generation will, with their wits about them but also without parti pris, seek to derive from those sciences principles that are calculated to bring about greater harmony, and better understanding, between m e n.

There are, indeed, brilliant thinkers, in w h o m a highly watchful intellectual outlook and a solid background of knowledge are combined, w h o have represented and continue to represent the various social sciences with honour, as witness the articles by the distinguished m e n of learning w h o have contributed to the present Bulletin — especially that by His Excellency Prof.

Einaudi, the President of the Italian Republic. It was in Italy that the bases of that modern political science, which today is graced by world-famous writers, were first laid. T h e great precursor of sociology was Giovanni Battista Vico. This Neapolitan savant's philological studies were to lead him towards a view of history that was based on the "collective fact".

H e thus came to regard the historical sequence of events as the result of the total s u m of the activity exercised by groups of h u m a n beings. Not content with a purely political picture of history, he delved into the past and found there what was the all-important fact — economic and social organization. T h e works by Bartolommeo Borghesi are classics. Nearer our o w n time, w e need only mention the prominence of historical science in the works of Benedetto Croce and of a number of outstanding minds, like D e Ruggiero, Calloggiero, Borghese and others, all of w h o m , whether they agreed with Croce or not, have brought historical studies to the forefront and have m a d e them into a true social science.

T h e economic sciences, too, are of high standing in Italy; savants like Pantaleoni have done work that will long be remembered. The legal sciences are widely taught in the universities and there is active research in this field, which is distinguished by m a n y great names like that of Alberico Gentili, to mention only one of the founders of international law.

Even sociology, which reached its zenith around , is tending to break away from the philosophy of law. In the social sciences, Italy has produced m a n y great minds, all equally gifted in the various branches; w e should mention, in particular, Pareto and Ferrero. As was pointed out by the experts w h o met in at Unesco House, the object of social science is, in the last analysis, to improve h u m a n relation- ships. It has therefore a prime part to play in constructing the edifice of peace.

It alone can guide our work by providing us with an accurate know- ledge of the data; it alone can bring about the education of the masses and so associate them in the great task that w e are undertaking, with resources that are so slender in the face of all that has to be done. T h e publication of the Italian issue of the Bulletin will not have failed in its purpose if it succeeds in keeping specialists of all countries abreast of research, and so in bringing them together internationally.

Side by side with the ancient schools, old schools cloaked by n e w names were revived : one of these was corporatism, which was later to be used for purposes of political domination.

Students of economics were split into two camps : optimists and pessimists, upholders and critics of the existing social order, free-traders and protectionists, individualists, socialists and communists. School against school, truth versus error; but often what was truth to one school was regarded as error by the opposing school. W e r e Pantaleoni to repeat his statement today, he would find the number of his opponents greatly reduced.

T h e fighters of social battles are little inter- ested in the problems of economic science; and serious students keep aloof from the struggles raging in the parliaments and the public squares. Recent treatises on economics, finance and statistics no longer bear any traces of conflicting schools of thought, of the conflicts fought out in the squares and parliaments of the world.

There still is, and there always will be, discussion amongst economists; but the questions they discuss are no longer related to h u m a n passions and sentiments, or to clashes between peoples and classes.

Passions and sentiments, struggles and conflicts continue, it is true, to rage outside the sacred temple of science; but within it, voices are hushed ; there are endless discussions on ends and means, the nature of eco- nomic judgement, material and immaterial goods, consumption and capital goods, complementary and substitute goods, present and future goods, calcu- lations of usefulness or choice, criteria for the valuation of wealth and the difficulty of establishing them; capital and income, riches and well-being, curves of d e m a n d and indifference, margins of substitution, elasticity of d e m a n d , marginal productivity, fixed and variable costs; internal and external economies; relation between savings and investments; propensity to consump- tion; and multiplicators.

His amazement marks the end of the controversy started by Pantaleoni. Curves and equations m a y be either true or false; the extent to which they represent the truth m a y vary within wide limits; they m a y constitute a n e w means for interpreting reality, or they m a y be nothing more than an academic exercise. They are incapable of causing a conflict of schools. If w e still speak of schools of thought — the schools of Lausanne, Vienna, Cambridge, and the Italian, Swedish and American schools — their names have no more than rhetorical significance.

In fact there are no schools; there are only students, w h o , sometimes politely and sometimes heatedly, frequently in friendly collaboration and sometimes in a spirit of mutual jealousy and sus- picion, as happens in all branches of learning, are working together on the erection of a single structure.

As they work, they tend, increasingly by dint of disagreements and conflicts, to form a closed society, a fraternity of initiates recognizing no national frontiers, and maintaining contact through international academies, and by the exchange of publications with distant countries. Like all fraternities of initiates, the economic fraternity has its o w n peculiar language which excludes the layman, and often baffles one w h o commenced his economic training in and is still accustomed to use the language of c o m m o n logic, which, from the time of Pareto, has been considered old- fashioned, purely literary, as compared to the mathematical one.

Be that as it m a y , even the old-fashioned m e n flatter themselves that they are able to divine, if not always completely to understand, the significance of the steady advance of economics, which is discarding the approximate, simple and partial theories formerly used for the interpretation of facts, in favour of theories of ever-increasing subtlety and complexity.

Amongst young writers there is an increasing tendency to scrap methods and tools applied even as late as the end of the last century; and some even go so far as to disregard all those evolved prior to the first world war. Perhaps this is inevitable; and if it was possible to read, in an introduction on teaching methods written by one of the leading historians of the day, that one could not, for lack of time and space, take account of literature prior to , then I should not be surprised to see a modern treatise on economics disregard the entire body of literature prior to the so-called Keynesian revolution.

Fortunately, economic experts are still conscious of the fact that our science is the fruit of slow progressive development, in which nothing which has really contributed to the establishment of the modern edifice is forgotten. T h e date of the birth of economic science at the latest is marked by the invention, by Cantillon, of two tools, caeteris paribus and entrepreneur, which are still used by research workers to this day; several years later , Ferdinando Galiani invented further tools which are still in use : the theory of the law of diminishing returns, and the theory of valuation by the market alle grida of currencies other than that selected as the unit of comparison.

Thus, the tableau Economique of the physiocrats is or should be remembered by modern authors of economic dynamics as the first attempt, albeit tenta- tive, to represent the economic world not as it exists at a given m o m e n t but as something which is constantly changing.

N o n e of the tools and theories which in the past contributed to know- ledge of the truth is lost; and while a modern theoretician m a y be correct in stating that "all traces of the influence of Karl M a r x on the science of economics have n o w disappeared", and while it m a y be true that the theory of the value and super-value of work is no longer interesting to students, the same is not true of Ricardo's theories on production cost, comparative costs and paper money, which, subject to certain adjustments and improve- ments, still form the basis of modern economic teaching.

From contemplation of the brilliant system of general equilibrium, according to which everything in the economic firmament is interconnected and interlinked and no change can occur on the smallest and most distant market without affecting all other markets everywhere, economists in a desperate desire to m a k e some addition to the general picture given by Walras and Pareto, turn again for a m o m e n t but such moments last for decades and give rise to immense quantities of literature to the old tool of caeteris paribus, and begin an exhaustive investigation of the theory of partial equili- brium.

With all due respect to the great master, Keynes takes the place of Marshall in provoking doubts and producing n e w systems, which only a few years after his death are already giving rise to fresh doubts and to the appearance, amongst economic theories, of fresh hypotheses, better suited for interpreting the mechanism of economic society. Like the physicist and the chemist, the economist considers it his duty to work for the discovery of new tools, n e w hypotheses better suited for the interpretation of the economic world in which he is living.

In the course of his search he suffers and labours—in this context the great Italian economist Francesco Ferrara a century ago, on succeeding Antonio Scialoja in the chair of economics at this university, used the word "travaglio" a word which means something more than mere labour : H e toils and endures more in- tensely than either the physicist or the chemist; since he lacks an invaluable instrument of research, i.

T h e economist suffers and labours because his ideals are lofty. I hope that I shall not m a k e m y fellow-economists sound too haughty when I say that they possess, amongst other qualities, the same ambition as the architect, the painter, the sculptor, the musician and the poet to conceive and experience beauty, to guide the creation of a work of art.

Y o u will tell m e that every great mathematician is a poet as well; and that in solving a complicated equation, in discovering a new theorem to which he gives his name , he expe- riences the same ecstasy as the m a n w h o gives to the world a poem or a picture. A n intuition and ecstatic contemplation of truth, a mental effort to convince others of a truth freshly discovered : what is this but pure beauty, a work of art?

In the science of economics beauty is linked with, or rather derived from, truth. I make no statement about the nature of beauty in art, but I affirm merely that theories, systems and theorems are beautiful because they are true, or at least because they appear to us to be successive, ever more perfect stages towards the perception of truth. It is the striving, never satisfied, towards the knowledge of truth which makes us at times proud, intolerant and scornful.

W e are certain of pursuing this quest only because, and as long as, w e are aware that w e do not know. The day on which one of us knows will be an evil one.

W h e n w e read some- times that a certain writer knows, states that he knows the truth to be this and not that, and classifies those w h o do not believe in his truth as heretics, then w e m a y be certain of one thing only : of our right to chase away the m a n w h o affirms that he knows, that he is able to teach others his truth. Such m e n w e are justified in driving mercilessly from the temple of knowledge.

W e belong to the aristocratic fraternity of students of economics only because and as long as w e know that w e are ignorant, because and as long as w e are eager to learn, and because and as long as w e are ready to divine and appre- hend new truths, thereby correcting or complementing those other truths which w e had for an instant the presumption to believe w e possessed.

Recognition of the limits of our knowledge leads us to mistrust those w h o claim to understand the causes of and the remedies for economic and social evils. W e are not prepared, nevertheless, to suffer the insults of those w h o claim that the science of economics is useless simply because it is unable to create plenty in periods of war, or to prevent a rise in prices when money increases or consumer goods are in short supply and their transport from country to town is risky and costly, or w h e n the nominal increase of wages fails to offset the effects of a decrease in the volume of goods.

W h e n laymen warn of bankruptcy, the experts exult; since it is only times of great difficulty, political and social upheaval and, unfortunately, war, that give them a rare opportunity for collecting significant data; and these data enable them, though by no means as accurately as by a process of scientific experiment, partially to isolate certain factors, the nature and effects of which they have hitherto striven in vain to ascertain.

It is not by chance that the Napoleonic Wars and the period immediately following them, up to , witnessed the most intensive development of the classical economic science; it was then that Ricardo wrote his "Principles" and his essay on a secure, economic currency system which laid the foundation of the theory of the circulation of paper money ; and that Sismondo de Sismondi m a d e a study of assignats and published the first scientific analysis of the devaluation of paper currency.

At that period also, at the conclusion of one of their sober monthly dinners, the members of the Economic Club in London discussed problems which still exist; and a glimpse of these discussions m a y be seen in the correspondence of G.

Say and Malthus, the former expounding the theory of "outlets", which the latter criticizes on grounds of the lack of effective demand, supported in this by Sismondi, w h o recalls that it was the inability of the poor peasants of his beloved Tuscany to constitute an effective demand that caused a slump on the English cotton market. It was during those meetings too that an obscure bank official named Pennington expounded the theory of credits creating bank deposits, instead of vice versa.

Again, in the period from to , wars and revolutions increased and emphasized circumstances and factors which in peace time, though not actually passing unobserved, would nevertheless have been difficult to analyse, their effects being easily influenced by other important factors.

Inexplicable real-life events related to language have also been reported — such as the British woman who woke up one day and started to speak with a French accent, or the Croatian girl who awoke from a coma and could no longer speak or understand her native language but was fluent in German — which have may been viewed with skepticism or even stirred stark criticism and have certainly sparked burning curiosity in the general public. Also, language has often been attributed magical powers and put to magical uses curses, charms, divinations. Current Course Schedule Information registrar. The specific objective of this course is to categorize and analyze the major changes that have taken place in the peculiarly Italian style of television advertising during the past fifty years. After a general introduction to the language of television advertising, students will compare chronologically ordered versions of Italian TV commercials for a variety of high-use products for instance, food, detergents, personal care items, cars in order to identify changes that have taken place at the level of vocabulary, grammar, and language register as a result of new socio- cultural dynamics that have come to characterize present-day Italy. We start with an introductory description of the domain of morphology. Next, we carry out a brief overview of the most prominent theoretical framework currently adopted in morphological analyses that will give us the background to better approach the reading assignments. We then proceed to a diachronic characterization the core morphological features of Romance languages pertaining to:. The secondary goal of this course help students develop skills that are essential to achieve a successful academic career.

The University of Minnesota Accessibility Observatory is partnering with TomTom to create a national dataset that studies and illustrates accessibility to jobs by automobiles and mass transit throughout the country. TomTom, a global leader in navigation and mapping products, will provide map and historical speed data to help analyze accessibility to jobs by auto for metropolitan areas across the United States. For transit data, the Observatory is relying on open, public sources using a method developed at the University with support from the Center for Transportation Studies. The Minnesota Department of Transportation is the lead agency and coordinator for the national pooled-fund study. The annually updated dataset will give study partners digital access to detailed reports of local accessibility trends and patterns. Each partner can use the dataset for local transportation system evaluation, performance management, planning, and research efforts.
