A Test of the Quasi-Circumplex Structure of Human Values

Perrinjaquet, Amandine ; Furrer, Olivier ; Usunier, Jean-Claude ; Cestre, Ghislaine ; Valette-Florence, Pierre

In: Journal of Research in Personality, 2007, p. 820-840

Schwartz’s value system (SVS) has been widely used in diVerent disciplines (e.g., psychology, management, and marketing). Although the value structure seems to be validated when data are analyzed through multidimensional scaling, we show that the quasi-circumplex structure of human values is not supported when conWrmatory analysis approaches (e.g., CIRCUM and constrained conWrmatory factor...

Colour Resemblance and Colour Realism

Dorsch, Fabian

In: Rivista di estetica, 2010, vol. 43, no. 1, p. 85-108

One prominent ambition of theories of colour is to pay full justice to how colours are subjectively given to us; and another to reconcile this first-personal perspective on colours with the third-personal one of the natural sciences. The goal of this article is to question whether we can satisfy the second ambition on the assumption that the first should and can be met. I aim to defend a...

Non-inferentialism about Justification - the Case of Aesthetic Judgments

Dorsch, Fabian

In: The Philosophical Quarterly, 2013, vol. 63, no. 253, p. 660-682

In this article, I present two objections against the view that aesthetic judgements – that is, judgemental ascriptions of aesthetic qualities like elegance or harmony – are justified non-inferentially. The first is that this view cannot make sense of our practice to support our aesthetic judgements by reference to lower-level features of the objects concerned. The second objection maintains...

The Dynamics and Evolution of the Service Marketing Literature: 1993-2003

Furrer, Olivier ; Sollberger, Pierre

In: Service Business, 2007, p. 93-117

This article analyzes service research published in marketing journals between 1993 and 2003. Two levels of analysis of the dynamics and evolution of the service marketing literature are distinguished: first, the dynamics of specific themes of the service marketing literature, and second, the structural evolution of these themes. Through a content analysis, we study the dynamics of individual...

Transparency and imagining seeing

Dorsch, Fabian

In: Philosophical Explorations, 2010, vol. 13, no. 3, p. 173-200

In his paper, The Transparency of Experience, M.G.F. Martin has put forward a wellknown – though not always equally well understood – argument for the disjunctivist, and against the intentional, approach to perceptual experiences. In this article, I intend to do four things: (i) to present the details of Martin’s complex argument; (ii) to defend its soundness against orthodox...

The Impact of Resource-Strategy Correspondence on Marketing Performance-Financial Performance Tradeoffs

Furrer, Olivier. ; Alexandre, M. T. ; Sudharshan, D.

In: Journal of Strategic Marketing, 2007, p. 161-183

We suggest that the relationships between strategy and financial performance and between strategy and marketing performance depend on the resource bundle and strategy of a firm. The better the correspondence between strategy and resource bundle, the better the performance. We empirically test and find support for this explanation. By building empirically calibrated models of the marketing and...

A cautionary tale about control variables in IV estimation

Deuchert, Eva ; Huber, Martin

(Working Papers SES ; 453)

Many instrumental variable (IV) regressions include control variables to justify (conditional) independence of the instrument and the potential outcomes. The plausibility of conditional IV independence crucially depends on the timing when the control variables are determined. This paper systemically works through different IV models and discusses the (conditions for the) satisfaction of...
