    Winning at a Losing Game? Side-Effects of Perceived Tournament Promotion Incentives in Audit Firms
    with Jorien L. Pruijssers and Pursey P. M. A. R. Heugens
    Journal of Business Ethics 162 (1): 149-167. 2020.
    Tournament-like promotion systems are the default in audit firms, which are generally internally owned professional partnerships. While awarding promotions in a contest-like fashion stimulates contestants’ motivation and productivity, it may also upset an organizations’ ethical climate and trigger ethically adverse behaviors. Since nearly all research on promotion tournaments in management has been conducted in public firms, little is known about how these incentive systems operate in profession…Read more

    Cognitive reactivity as outcome and working mechanism of mindfulness-based cognitive therapy for recurrently depressed patients in remission
    with M. B. Cladder-Micus, A. R. T. Donders, J. Spijker, J. N. Vrijsen, and A. E. M. Speckens
    Cognition and Emotion 32 (2): 371-378. 2017.
    ABSTRACTMajor depressive disorder is a prevalent condition with high relapse rates. There is evidence that cognitive reactivity is an important vulnerability factor for the recurrence of depression. Mindfulness-based interventions are designed to reduce relapse rates, with cognitive reactivity as one of the proposed working mechanisms. In a randomised controlled trial we compared the effect of mindfulness-based cognitive therapy with treatment-as-usual on cognitive reactivity in recurrently depr…Read more

  • Dynamics of nonlinear feedback control
    with H. Snippe
    In Robert Schwartz (ed.), Perception, Blackwell. pp. 182-182. 2004.
    Feedback control in neural systems is ubiquitous. Here we study the mathematics of nonlinear feedback control. We compare models in which the input is multiplied by a dynamic gain (multiplicative control) with models in which the input is divided by a dynamic attenuation (divisive control). The gain signal (resp. the attenuation signal) is obtained through a concatenation of an instantaneous nonlinearity and a linear low-pass filter operating on the output of the feedback loop. For input steps, …Read more

    Ties That Grind? Corroborating a Typology of Social Contracting Problems
    with Pursey P. M. A. R. Heugens and Muel Kaptein
    Journal of Business Ethics 49 (3): 235-252. 2004.
    Contractualism conceives of firm-stakeholder relations as cooperative schemes for mutual benefit. In essence, contractualism holds that these schemes, as well as the normative principles that guide and constrain them, are ultimately ratified by the consent and endorsement of those subject to them. This paper explores the empirical validity of a contractualist perspective on firm-stakeholder relations. It first develops a typology of firm-stakeholder contracting problems. It subsequently confront…Read more

    Rethinking Organizational Ethics: A Plea for Pluralism
    with Ben Wempe and Theo van Willigenburg
    Journal of Business Ethics 55 (4): 387-395. 2004.
    This paper challenges a pervasive, if not always explicit assumption of the present state of theorising in business ethics. This is the idea that a workable theory of organizational ethics must provide a unified perspective on its subject matter. In this paper we will sketch the broad outlines of an alternative understanding of business ethics, which focuses on constraints on corporate conduct that cannot reasonably be rejected. These constraints stem from at least three different levels or sphe…Read more

    Network
    Theory, Culture and Society 23 (2-3): 307-314. 2006.
    Network is a device for organizing and conceptualizing non-linear complexity. Networks defy narrative, chronology and thus also genealogy because they entail a multiplicity of traces. Networks problematize boundaries and centrality but intensify our ability to think in terms of flows and simultaneity. As a concept, network has been highly conducive to theorizing phenomena and processes such as globalization, digital media , speed, symbiosis and complexity. This in turn enables us to rethink what…Read more

    A Contagious Living Fluid: Objectification and Assemblage in the History of Virology
    Theory, Culture and Society 19 (5-6): 107-124. 2002.
    This article deals with the birth of `the virus' as an object of technoscientific analysis. The aim is to discuss the process of objectification of pathogen virulence in virological and medical discourses. Through a short excursion into the history of modern virology, it will be argued that far from being a matter of fact, pathogen virulence had to be `produced', for example in petri-dishes, test-kits and hyper-real signification-practices. The now commonly accepted objective status of `the viru…Read more

    The Effect of Instructing the Structural Aspect of Texts
    with N. A. Broer, C. A. J. Aarnoutse, and F. K. Kieviet
    Educational Studies 28 (3): 213-238. 2002.
    This paper reports on a study of 354 pupils in the top form of Dutch primary schools spread over 18 classes and two research conditions . The experimental condition involved teaching the recognition of two text structures, the classification structure and the causation structure. Pupils were also taught how to make schematics in which the main points of the text are arranged in line with the text structure. The study shows that pupils of around 12 years old are able to recognize the text structu…Read more

    Teaching domain-specific skills before peer assessment skills is superior to teaching them simultaneously
    with M. J. van Zundert, K. D. Könings, and D. M. A. Sluijsmans
    Educational Studies 38 (5): 541-557. 2012.
    Instruction in peer assessment of complex task performance may cause high cognitive load, impairing learning. A stepwise instructional strategy aimed at reducing cognitive load was investigated by comparing it with a combined instructional strategy in an experiment with 128 secondary school students (mean age 14.0?years; 45.2% male) with the between-subjects factor instruction (stepwise, combined). In the stepwise condition, study tasks in Phase 1 were domain-specific and study tasks in Phase 2 …Read more
