In my paper “The Coldness, a Universal Function in Thermodynamics of Simple Heat Conducting Fluids” I have investigated the consequences of an entropy principle which may roughly be described as follows:

In every body there exists a scalar additive quantity, the entropy, whose production density is non-negative for every thermodynamic process and whose density and flux are constitutive quantities.
