    Authors: Mancosu, Paolo; Hafner, Johannes;

    In this paper we will begin with some general methodological remarks about mathematical explanations. We will then point out that attention to mathematical practice reveals the presence of a great variety of mathematical explanations. This realization affects two important aspects of the discussion of the nature of mathematical explanation. First of all, most of the traditional debates (see Mancosu 1999, 2000, 2001) have focused on the opposition between explanatory and non-explanatory proofs. However, there are mathematical explanations that do not come in the form of proofs and this has in fact been recognized by several scholars. Second, the variety of mathematical explanations challenges the current philosophical accounts of mathematical explanation, i.e. those of Kitcher and Steiner. As detailed discussion of case studies is necessary to see the limitations of such accounts, in the second part of the paper we restrict our focus to Steiner's theory and to the discussion of an example of an explanatory proof which, we claim, Steiner's theory cannot account for.

    International audience; This chapter takes all that into account by considering the role of the practitioner of Tibetan medicine (amchi) in childbirth in two distinct settings of Ladakh, in north-western India. We will examine how birth occurred and how it was managed in the very isolated area of Shun Shade at the turn of the millennium and contrast this with material from the urban milieu in Leh, the capital city of the region. This comparison will allow us to explore the amchi’s position on the margins in both territorial/political and medical terms.

    Authors: Elliott, Matt; Golub, Benjamin; Leduc, Matt V.;

    Empirical studies of commercial relationships between firms reveal that (i) suppliers encounter situations in which they can gain in the short run by acting opportunistically---for example, delivering a lower quality than promised after being paid; and (ii) good conduct is sustained not exclusively by formal contracts but through informal relationships and the expectation of future business. In such relationships, the need to offer each supplier a large enough share of future business to deter cheating limits the number of supply relationships each buyer can sustain. The market thus becomes networked, with trade restricted to durable relationships. We propose and analyze a simple dynamic model to examine the structure of such overlapping relational contracts in equilibrium. Due to exogenous stochastic shocks, suppliers are not always able to make good on their promises even if they wish to, and so links are constantly dissolving and new ones are forming to take their place. This induces a Markov process on networks. We study how the stationary distribution over networks depends on the parameters---most importantly, the value of trade and the probability of shocks. When the rate at which shocks hit increases, as might happen during an economic downturn, maintaining incentive compatibility with suppliers requires promising each more future business and this necessitates maintaining fewer relationships with suppliers. This results in a destruction of social capital, and even if the rate of shocks later returns to its former level, it can take considerable time for social capital to be rebuilt because of search frictions. This creates a novel way for shocks to be persistent. It also suggests new connections between the theory of relational contracting, on the one hand, and the macroeconomic analysis of recessions, on the other.
