This paper aims to demonstrate some clue difficulties of meaning and naming problem in two contrasting approaches: descriptivism and causal theory of reference and then suggests another option which descends to structural linguistics. Due to the structural point of view the author tries to clarify some underlined causes of this two approaches`s argument which is still in process. According to structural version the meaning is not a self-identical entity and therefore it is nor a name, neither a description.
We investigated brain organization of action naming and its relation to brain damage localization and naming scores in patients with aphasia. Nineteen healthy people and 6 individuals with aphasia participated in an fMRI experiment. They had to name a picture of an action with a single verb or to utter a pseudo-verb in response to a digitally distorted picture. Patients with the damage to the left frontal areas, where normative activation was found in the healthy group, had the lowest naming scores. Higher naming scores in individuals with aphasia was found related to a generalized activation in the left hemisphere.
The paper examines the structure, governance, and balance sheets of state-controlled banks in Russia, which accounted for over 55 percent of the total assets in the country's banking system in early 2012. The author offers a credible estimate of the size of the country's state banking sector by including banks that are indirectly owned by public organizations. Contrary to some predictions based on the theoretical literature on economic transition, he explains the relatively high profitability and efficiency of Russian state-controlled banks by pointing to their competitive position in such functions as acquisition and disposal of assets on behalf of the government. Also suggested in the paper is a different way of looking at market concentration in Russia (by consolidating the market shares of core state-controlled banks), which produces a picture of a more concentrated market than officially reported. Lastly, one of the author's interesting conclusions is that China provides a better benchmark than the formerly centrally planned economies of Central and Eastern Europe by which to assess the viability of state ownership of banks in Russia and to evaluate the country's banking sector.
The results of cross-cultural research of implicit theories of innovativeness among students and teachers, representatives of three ethnocultural groups: Russians, the people of the North Caucasus (Chechens and Ingushs) and Tuvinians (N=804) are presented. Intergroup differences in implicit theories of innovativeness are revealed: the ‘individual’ theories of innovativeness prevail among Russians and among the students, the ‘social’ theories of innovativeness are more expressed among respondents from the North Caucasus, Tuva and among the teachers. Using the structural equations modeling the universal model of values impact on implicit theories of innovativeness and attitudes towards innovations is constructed. Values of the Openness to changes and individual theories of innovativeness promote the positive relation to innovations. Results of research have shown that implicit theories of innovativeness differ in different cultures, and values make different impact on the attitudes towards innovations and innovative experience in different cultures.
