From Universe To Polyverses, Rudolf Kaehr 2010 ThinkArt Lab Glasgow

From Universe To Polyverses, Rudolf Kaehr

Rudolf Kaehr

Some thoughts about the power of speculation behind important discoveries in mathematics, physics and computer science. The exercise shows that there is no need for a compulsory ultimate unifying universe. It is speculated that just this paradigm of a single ultimate universe is unmasking itself today as the main obstacle for further development in Western science and technology.

Hannah Arendt: Pensar A Crise Da Educação No Mundo Contemporâneo., Andre de Macedo Duarte, Maria Rita de Assis César 2010 Universidade Federal do Paraná - UFPR, Brasil

Hannah Arendt: Pensar A Crise Da Educação No Mundo Contemporâneo., Andre De Macedo Duarte, Maria Rita De Assis César

Andre de Macedo Duarte

Abstract: Divided in three sections, the present article discusses Hannah Arendt’s reflections on the contemporary crisis in education. In the first section we establish some general theoretical connections between Arendt’s thesis concerning the contemporary crisis in education and her philosophical and political reflections on the modern political crisis. In the second section we analyze Arendt’s idea that the crisis in education is also related to the introduction of psyco-pedagogical approaches that, instead of contributing to educate the young to assume a future responsibility for the common world, keep them in their infantile condition up to adulthood, bringing ...

Power Made Flesh: An Examination Of Power In Critical Legal Studies, Neal D. Richards 2010 Georgetown University

Power Made Flesh: An Examination Of Power In Critical Legal Studies, Neal D. Richards

Neal D Richards

The concept of “power” is central to critical legal studies. Nevertheless, there is little discussion of what theorists mean when they critique an area of law based on underlying power structures. Given the rather slippery nature of the power concept, this is unsurprising. Yet, because how one defines power requires defining one’s normative and epistemological presuppositions, having a coherent theory of power is essential to creating an effective critique of the current state of the legal discourse. Such a theory can be created by walking through the narrative of the history of human interaction leading to the present day ...

Intentional Communities: Ethics As Praxis, Ruth Rewa Bohill 2010 Southern Cross University

Intentional Communities: Ethics As Praxis, Ruth Rewa Bohill

Theses

Intentional communities are formed by a group of people who have voluntarily chosen to live together for a range of reasons in the creation of a shared lifestyle. They concern practical forms of living that may reflect diverse structures and distinct philosophies. The intentional community literature is both broad and unique in its representation of intentional community living. Intentional communities may also be considered sites that form the basis for resisting mainstream forms of living and representations of subjectivity. Through an active process of self-constitution, participants engaged in communal forms of living may construct different identities and styles of life ...


Late Pragmatism, Logical Positivism, And Their Aftermath, David Ingram 2010 Loyola University Chicago

Late Pragmatism, Logical Positivism, And Their Aftermath, David Ingram

Philosophy: Faculty Publications and Other Works

Developments in Anglo-American philosophy during the first half of the 20th Century closely tracked developments that were occurring in continental philosophy during this period. This should not surprise us. Aside from the fertile communication between these ostensibly separate traditions, both were responding to problems associated with the rise of mass society. Rabid nationalism, corporate statism, and totalitarianism (Left and Right) posed a profound challenge to the idealistic rationalism of neo-Kantian and neo-Hegelian philosophies. The decline of the individual – classically conceived by the 18th-century Enlightenment as a self-determining agent – provoked strong reactions. While some philosophical tendencies sought to re-conceive the ...

What About The Children? Benjamin And Arendt: On Education, Work, And The Political, Jules Simon

Jules Simon

This article is a rough draft of an article that I contributed to an edited volume of articles dealing with progressive education theory. I reflect on articles that Hannah Arendt and Walter Benjamin wrote that deal with educational reform and innovation, both political in nature.

Vite Svuotate. Per Una Critica Dell’Impatto Psicosociale Del Capitalismo Contemporaneo, In "Costruzioni Psicoanalitiche", X, N. 20 (2010), Pp. 71-81., Marco Solinas

Marco Solinas

Il saggio mira a individuare e delucidare alcuni nessi causali tra il concomitante incremento dei fenomeni depressivi, non solo in senso strettamente clinico, e l’affermazione del nuovo modello capitalistico avvenuto nei paesi occidentali dai primi anni settanta ad oggi. Oltre che sul meccanismo della flessibilità del mercato del lavoro, si insiste in particolare sulle dinamiche paradossali delle istanze etiche e morali della nuova configurazione ideologica. Ricorrendo anche alla categoria di egemonia, vengono da ultimo approntati degli strumenti teorici finalizzati a riattivare i potenziali emancipativi frustrati nella sofferenza sociale di natura depressiva e regressiva. The paper aims to single out ...

Die Melancholie, Der Geist Des Kapitalismus Und Die Depression, In "Freie Assoziation", 13, N. 4 (2010), S. 79-99., Marco Solinas

Marco Solinas

Der Aufsatz zielt darauf, der Prozess der historischen Überlagerung, Substitution und Verbreitung des theoretischen Paradigmas der Depression gegenüber jenem der Melancholie darzustellen. Im ersten Teil wird versucht, einige der einschneidenden Eigenschaften der Thematisierungen der Melancholie in der Frühen Neuzeit anzugeben, auch im Verhältnis zum Geist des Kapitalismus. Nachdem eine Skizze der Entstehung der moderne Kategorie der Depression, geht es darum, den Verlauf nachzuzeichnen, der im 20. Jahrhundert zu ihrer Transformation in ein weitläufiges theoretisches Paradigma geführt hat, das schließlich jenes der Melancholie ersetzt hat. Der zweite Teil stellt den Versuch dar, eine Zeitdiagnose umzureißen: An dieser Stelle ist die psychosoziale ...

Axel Honneth, "Capitalismo E Riconoscimento", Edited And Translated By Marco Solinas, Firenze: Firenze University Press, 2010., Marco Solinas

Marco Solinas

Capitalismo e riconoscimento" presenta, in cinque saggi per la prima volta raccolti insieme e tradotti in italiano, una densa e pregnante analisi di taluni cruciali processi socio-strutturali, morali e normativi delle società capitalistiche contemporanee dalla prospettiva delle dinamiche del reciproco riconoscimento e del disrispetto concernenti la sfera del lavoro. Particolare attenzione è dedicata ai paradossali rovesciamenti delle istanze di autorealizzazione, autonomia e responsabilità personale registratisi negli ultimi decenni nel quadro di un mercato del lavoro sempre più deregolato.
