Luca Malatesti, the CEO of the CEASCRO factory, has been awarded the annual prize for scientific excellence of the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences at the University of Rijeka. He mostly managed to impress the judges with the several co-authored outputs of the project. Although he has expressed gratitude to the co-authors, Marko Jurjako, Zdenka Brzović, Elvio Baccarini, Filip Čeč, Predrag Šustar, Vesna Šendula Jengić, and Jelena Hodak, he has neither disclosed the value of monetary reward nor whether he will share it with them…. But we congratulate him the same.
On 7.5.2018. Marko Jurjako gave a popular talk with the title “Psychopathy: mental illness or just a deviation from social norms”.
The talk was given at the Rijeka City Hall, as part of a series of lectures celebrating 20th anniversary of the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences in Rijeka.
Zdenka Brzović published another gem from CEASCRO factory! This time it is an encyclopaedia entry on Natural kinds.
The article entitled “Natural kinds” is published in Internet Encyclopedia of Philosophy, an open access peer reviewed encyclopedia of philosophy.

Another piece by the CEASCRO dream team is out. This time we did the Italian job:
Brzović, Z., Jurjako, M. and Malatesti, L. (2018). Il modello medico forte e i disturbi antisociali della personalità (Eng. The strong medical model and the antisocial personality disorders). Sistemi intelligenti, 30(1), 175–188. DOI: 10.1422/89324
Mama we are coming home!
We are proud to announce that another CEASCRO paper has been published. This time the lead author is Zdenka Brzović, who in a colaboration with Marko Jurjako and Predrag Šustar wrote a paper entitled “The kindness of psychopaths” published in the International studies in the philosophy of science.
Don’t be misled by the title, they are not actually (a) kind! In the paper, the authors discuss whether psychopathy should be considered a natural kind.
The paper is published open access thanks to a grant by the Croatian science foundation.
