En 1766, le tribunal d’Abbeville condamne le chevalier de La Barre, accusé de conduite blasphématoire, à la décapitation. Le bûcher sur lequel ses restes sont jetés voit également sacrifier un exemplaire du Dictionnaire philosophique : aux yeux de l’accusation, la responsabilité de Voltaire dans l’affaire ne fait aucun doute. S’appuyant sur la correspondance voltairienne relative à ce moment, le présent article tente d’apporter un éclairage nouveau sur les modalités de mobilisation des différents discours produits. Il s’emploie également à déterminer l’incidence, sur le discours, de la diffusion publique des mémoires en défense et, à l’inverse, du secret entourant le discours de l’accusation. Est enfin abordée la question corrélative de la réception par l’opinion des discours des deux parties, révélatrice de leurs conceptions respectives du rôle des gens de lettres dans la vie publique.

We tested domestic cats in the cylinder task, and found that they perform better ifthe cylinder is larger. We also found that their highest performance parallels that ofgreat apes and corvids, which are known as the best performing animals on this task.The cylinder task is used to test animals’ motor self-regulation. Recently a large-scalestudy tested 36 species on the task and found that absolute brain size correlatedwith the performance; with great apes as top performers. Another study showedthat corvids perform as good as great apes despite having smaller absolute brainsize. We questioned whether average brained animals have as poor motor self-regulation as suggested, as it appears highly maladaptive; instead the results couldbe a reflection of the sensorimotor set-up of different species in relation to thematerials used. No cats have been tested on the task before.Eight adult domestic cats participated in four versions of the task. We manipulatedthe size and materials, with two large (18.5 cm diameter) and two small (9.5 cmdiameter) cylinders, out of glass and plastic respectively. Each condition comprisedof two phases. First, a subject learned to retrieve a reward from an opaque cylinder(5 trials), and after a 24-hour delay was tested on a transparent cylinder (10 trials). Aretrieval of the reward without touching the cylinder’s front counted as a successfultrial.The success rate differed between conditions, and was highest (98,75) for the “smallplastic” condition. There was a significant main effect of the cylinder size on thesuccess rate [F(1,7)=64.06, p <0.001]. We discuss these results, as they call intoquestion whether the large-scale study took into account the sensorimotor architecture of each species, and more importantly, whether the task alwaysmeasures motor self-regulation.

The European electricity industry was recently liberalized. In response, there was a surge of mergers and acquisitions (M&As). This study addresses the effects of M&As on the eco-efficiency of European electricity producers in 2005–2013. The environmental production technology comprises CO2 emissions as an undesirable output. I compute eco-efficiency using data envelopment analysis (DEA) and the Malmquist-Luenberger productivity index, which are both based on radial directional distance function. I observe a decreasing trend in average eco-efficiency, which contradicts the previously documented moderate efficiency gains of liberalization. The effects of M&As are isolated using second-step fractional regression. The domestic horizontal M&As, which are systematically regulated by the European Commission, have no impact. Although one cross-border horizontal deal has a same-year effect of roughly −3%, this effect becomes approximately +1.5% over a two-year timespan. Vertical domestic M&As have a short-run negative impact of 3.6% that does not persist over time. Vertical international M&As reduce the eco-efficiency by 2.1% two years after their completion. Limited evidence suggests that the conglomerate deals are at least not harmful. The policy implication is that the merger regulation should be based on DEA eco-efficiency measures. Regulators should devote more attention to cross-border M&As and particularly to vertical deals. [less ▲]
