Piero's thematic consistency even bridges different categories of image, from the sacred to the non-sacred--the theme of the spontaneous generation
of living things is manifest in the tadpoles of the Toledo painting, here providing a 'natural metaphor' for the Virgin birth.
Because bacterial biofilms are known to compromise production of antimicrobial superoxide radicals by immune cells, weakening the ability of the body to fight infection, the study's observation that Procellera initiated spontaneous generation
of superoxide radicals is particularly significant.
There is a parallel here to biological processes--the repetition with variation that is the principle mechanism of evolution--and such resonances are all the stronger when one considers Adibi's interest in the notion of the spontaneous generation
of life from inanimate matter (see, for example, Abiogenesis, 2009, or, less specifically, any of a number of works made with a precise shade of pistachio green that brings forth the otherwise imperceptible red in the unprimed beige fabric, animating chroma).
Pasteur in 1864 wrote the final obituary to the doctrine of spontaneous generation
Although bovine PrPC with the 113L mutation has not been found in nature, it would be useful to establish whether this mutation could induce spontaneous generation
of an infectious prion disease in a bovine PrP context.
11 to a close reading and argues (contra Lennox) that even in the case of spontaneous generation
there is an actualization of an irreducible potentiality, that which is found in "vital" heat.
He considers the bureaucratization of France's vibrant scientific community through the national university system and an increasingly competitive labor-market in credentialed scientists; the question of ethical values inculcated by science, such as materialism and the repudiation of religious authority; the "radical synthesis" of positivism with "evolution by natural selection, the spontaneous generation
of life, and polygenist doctrines on the multiplicity of the human races"; and how 19th-century French scientists "interacted with concerns that far transcended the strictly drawn boundaries of scientists' quest for an understanding and mastery of nature.
Subsequently, he developed an interest in fermentation, a subject around which the emerging germ theory clashed with the theory of spontaneous generation
To sum up, my point is that criticizing efforts at constructivist rationalism simply on the grounds that they interfere with the spontaneous generation
of social institutions is like telling a lion not to eat an antelope because doing so would be "bad for evolution.
That Aristotle mentions "pneuma" here is clearly connected with his discussion about the spontaneous generation
of life-forms in the sea, which in his view possesses intrinsic life-promoting heat in shallow places.
A: Spontaneous generation
is the origin of life in the wild.
Thus, Enobarbus's description of Cleopatra seems like a fantastic dream, and the clearest articulation of the central Egyptian trope of spontaneous generation
comes from the drunken Lepidus, who desires to believe in an exotic Egypt that he has never seen.
