Teresa Freixes, Professor of Constitutional Law at the Autonomous University of Barcelona, ​​full academician of the Royal European Academy of Doctors-Barcelona 1914 (RAED) and founder and president of the Catalan platform Civic Concord, presented to the RAED an article denouncing the argument and the pretensions of the Catalan Government in its independence policies. “While waiting for us to see what is left of the request made by the Ppesident of the Spanish Government to the Catalan president, secessionism seeks to prolong the situation so that, in the Slovenian or, perhaps, Kosovar way structures of State and control of the territory that allow it, in an undetermined time, to face with greater advantages the effectiveness of an independence in installments until it can be considered as irreversible what constitutes a continuous blackmail that can not be accepted in mode some”, the academician begins his reflection. For Freixes, the State Government is wasting time on whether or not a unilateral declaration of independence has been made by the Catalan government. “It’s a shame to think that someone can believe that Catalonia is a colony or that Spain systematically violates the rights of the Catalans, even though some try to throw an image of this type abroad.

It’s not hours

Ignacio Buqueras, president of the Humanities Section of the Royal Academy of Doctors of Spain and honorary president of the Association for the Rationalization of Schedules in Spain, attributes to the Spanish schedules, outdated in relation to the rest of European countries, structural problems such as the weakness of civil society, the low birth rate or even the number of divorces and school failure. The Royal Academy of Doctors of Spain maintains a close relationship with the Royal European Academy of Doctors-Barcelona 1914 (RAED). “Many women have told me: I would like to have more children but with these schedules I can’t raise the family, we are the last ones to help the family, as well as the European country with more marital separations. Many couples come to their homes after long hours of work and between them creates unnecessary tensions. In the rest of Europe, it’s normal for people to finish their workday at five in the afternoon”, Buqueras explains in an interview with La Razón newspaper. On the other hand, the academician denounces the “presentism” as a characteristic of the Spanish labor world that forces the workers to remain in their work place unproductive hours for their activity. “In te rest of Europe, if the boss wants to stay… as if he has a bunk in the office and wants to sleep there until the next day.

The robot that believes in God

Josep Ignasi Saranyana, full academician and president of the Section of Human Sciences of the Royal European Academy of Doctors-Barcelona 1914 (RAED) presented last October 10 with the writer Arturo San Agustín the last novel of this renowned author, “El robot que cree en Dios” (The robot that believes in God), in which San Agustín tells how a future Pope, Innocent XIV, faces the existence of a robot that inexplicably crosses. Member of the Pontifical Committee of Historical Sciences, Saranyana considered that in the novel there is much of the legendary film “Blade Runner”, “although unlike Ridley Scott, who denies that his replicants feel emotions and have feelings, Arturo San Agustín does concede to his robot Talos feelings and emotions, so San Agustín is committed”. For the academician, the work raises two fundamental questions: whether androids can be able to feel and express religious emotions and feelings and whether the religious instinct should stand on the same plane or not as the supernatural revelation offered by Christianity. “The novel also questions us about how little we question robotics, transhumanism and posthumanism,” added San Agustín, who considered as a mistake to leave science alone in the hands of scientists without often taking into account its moral...

The Academies, for the democratic legality

The Royal European Academy of Doctors-Barcelona 1914 (RAED) translates to its academicians, as an Academy associated with the Institute of Spain, the declaration of its Governing Board on the challenge to the legality and coexistence that supposes the independence policy promoted by the Government of Catalonia. The institution that groups the main Spanish scientific Academies considers that “the wrong referendum promoted by the Autonomous Government of Catalonia lacks all legitimacy, since it violates the most elementary requirements of the State of Law”. “No fully democratic country like Spain admits, nor can it admit, the claim to violate national sovereignty, nor the attempt to break its unity – the statement goes on to say-. In addition to illegitimate, this alleged vote would be completely void by the permanent manipulation of public opinion, coercion of dissenters and abusive and irregular use of the entire Autonomous Administration to impose a false monolithic image of Catalan citizenship”. “For all this -concludes the Governing Board of the Institute of Spain-, it’s considered that the promoters of this attempt to violate the essential legality of the State must respond in a manner proportional to the magnitude of its attempt, in accordance with the laws in force in our rule of law. For this reason, the Board expresses its support for the powers of the State in the implementation of all necessary measures to maintain the...
