    Tämän tutkielman tarkoituksena on olla jonkinlainen kunnianosoitus liki kadonneelle liikennemuodolle, uittamiselle ja uittomiehille. Tukinuiton kohtalona on ollut jäädä lähes huomiotta metsätaloutta, metsäteollisuutta ja kuljetusoloja koskevassa historiallisessa kirjallisuudessa. Työ on suoraa jatkoa autonomian ajan liikenneolojen kehitystä koskeneelle tutkimukselleni Liikenne Suomessa 1860-1913 (Kasvututkimuksia XI, 1983) ja pyrkii täydentämään sitä.

    Abstract (Teaching in research ethics): The aim of this paper is to discuss teaching in research ethics. According to the guidelines issued by the National Advisory Board on Research Ethics in Finland (2002) the units providing researcher training have a duty to include good scientific practice and research ethics in this training. Various kinds of materials are needed in teaching in research ethics. One of them is fiction, which has appeared to be helpful in discussions of ethic problems. A number of examples taken from Finnish and Swedish fiction are discussed by referring to the above mentioned guidelines. The presentation is based on a chiasm, i.e. it goes from good scientific practice to fiction and further from fiction to teaching in research ethics.

    In Spring 2014, a small group of students at University of Helsinki took on the task of adapting and applying usability-evaluation techniques for evaluating four different types of augmented-reality applications. This report combines their final reports so that other students, researchers, and IT professionals around the world facing similar situations can draw from their experiences and findings. The course was instructed by the editor of this work. ACM Computing Classification System (CCS): H.5 [Human-centered computing] I.3.2 [Computing methodologies]
  • Treuherz, Nicholas (Helsinki Collegium for Advanced Studies, 2014)
    This article asks if the role of the Enlightenment philosopher was, as understood by contemporaries, to work against elites, or to underpin them. Concentrating particularly on the arch-elitist Frederick the Great and his court philosophers, we will track the notion of the elite and their position as holders of truth and enlighteners. The central tenet of the debate will concern the notion of lying to the masses and the utility of truth. It will be shown that advocacy of absolute truth was rare and often dissimulated by philosophers keen to avoid censure. This dividing line will be used to show the cultural transfer of Francophone debates to the German intellectual sphere.

    The goal of my study was to find out reasons for sustainable consumption habits through consumer identity. I focused on voluntary simplicity as a consumer identity, its motives and its limits for consumption. Also collective and personal interests were discussed from the point of view of sustainable consumption. The empirical part of the research consists of 12 interviews. The target group included high-educated parents of small children who value environmental protection. I got the interviewees through "Vihreä lanka" -journal, "Ylevi" (an internet discussion page of the Greens) and faculty e-mail lists. I wrote a summary of each interview and I analysed the data by dividing it into themes. The reliability of the data was tested by letting the interviewees read the summary of their interview. This research shows that sustainable consumption is not easy to follow for the level of western consumption is very high. Some of the interviewees found sustainable consumption easy to follow in their everyday consumption choices while others found it easier through big consumption choices with long-term effects. The motives for sustainable consumption were found from values, a sense of duty toward the environment and a desire to keep it as good as possible for the children. Also the support of a close person was important. The most important factors for sustainable consumption were own attitude and strong will. The interviewees defined their own limits of consumption and were not willing to cross these limits. Nevertheless, the limits could be altered if the living situation changed. A person’s pain threshold was the reason for not having given up all of the unsustainable consumption habits. The birth of children changed consumption habits because of new needs. Parents also wanted to set a good example for their children. Sustainable consumption is a collective interest from the point of view of environmental protection. The interviewees felt that policymakers contribute more to economical than ecological development. The interviewees carried out collective interest by consuming sustainably even though they didn’t feel it gave them any direct benefit. In some cases the benefits of sustainable consumption could be experienced as an individual advantage. Sustainable consumption has no clear limits. The limits of own consumer identity help to make decisions of consumption. Moral pleasure and the control of own consumption act as more important spurs for sustainable consumption than social norms and economical goads. At the end voluntarily chosen simple consumption is always connected with the own will of the consumer.
