Phenomenological Theories Of Crime, 2012 Northeastern University
Phenomenological Theories Of Crime, Peter K. Manning, Michael W. Raphael
Graduate Student Publications and Research
The distinctive aspect of phenomenological theories of crime is that they are based upon a stated epistemology: how things are known and a specific ontology—the nature of social reality. This specificity aligns itself with neo-Kantian concern with forms of knowing, interpretation, and meaning, as well as with 20th-century concern with perception, cognition, and the framing of events. While there are influences of phenomenological thinking on varieties of theorizing, such as symbolic interactionism, critical theory, queer theory, and gender-based theories of crime, these ideas are refractions and are inconsistent in their reference to and understanding of the foundational phenomenological works ...
The Three-Fold Significance Of The Blaming Emotions, 2012 Northern Michigan University
The Three-Fold Significance Of The Blaming Emotions, Zac Cogley
Much of the philosophical work on moral responsibility assumes that we should understand people’s moral responsibility for the actions they take in terms of the appropriateness of the blaming emotions—resentment, anger, and indignation. However, current theorizing about the blaming emotions is often psychologically uninformed. Drawing on work in empirical psychology, I have recently argued that anger serves three functions in human psychology: appraisal, motivation, and communication. In this project, I propose to extend that analysis to the entire class of blaming emotions. I will show that theorizing about moral responsibility is myopic if it focuses on one of ...
Locke And Berkeley At Twenty Paces, 2012 Willis-Knighton Health System/Cardiovascular Consultants, LLP
Locke And Berkeley At Twenty Paces, Frederick J. White Iii
Frederick J White III
Does the world exist? Or more properly questioned, does anything of the world exist beyond our ideas of it? Locke and Berkeley have become seconds at twenty paces on this dichotomy, and we are asked to consider the outcome of the duel.

Fibromyalgie, Douleur Et Fasciathérapie, Cyril Dupuis, Danis Bois
Ce travail porte sur la fasciathérapie appliquée aux douleurs de la fibromyalgie, et tente de répondre à la question « quels sont les effets de la fasciathérapie sur la douleur et ses consé- quences, ainsi que sur le vécu des patients qui souffrent de fibromyalgie ? » Pour cela, j’ai présenté le champ théorique des douleurs chroniques et du syndrome fibromyalgique, ainsi que celui des thérapies s’adressant aux fascias et notamment la fasciathérapie méthode Danis Bois. J’ai abordé cette recherche avec une posture double pour tenter d’appréhender la ...

Do Ssds Extend The Conscious Mind?, 2012 University of Amsterdam
Do Ssds Extend The Conscious Mind?, Mirko Farina, Julian Kiverstein
Is the brain the biological substrate of consciousness? Most naturalistic philosophers of mind have supposed that the answer must obviously be «yes » to this question. However, a growing number of philosophers working in 4e (embodied, embedded, extended, enactive) cognitive science have begun to challenge this assumption, arguing instead that consciousness supervenes on the whole embodied animal in dynamic interaction with the environment. We call views that share this claim dynamic sensorimotor theories of consciousness (DSM). Clark (2009), a founder and leading proponent of the hypothesis of the extended mind, demurs, arguing that as matter of fact the biology of consciousness ...

Social Cognition And The Allure Of The Second-Person Perspective: In Defense Of Empathy And Simulation, Karsten R. Stueber
Philosophy Faculty Scholarship
This essay serves as an evaluation of challenges to the orthodox way of conceiving "mindreading" abilities by defending a 2006 claim by the author that those abilities involve basic and reenactive empathy .
Mary’S Dilemma: A Novel Take On Jackson’S Famous Thought Experiment, 2012 Claremont McKenna College
Mary’S Dilemma: A Novel Take On Jackson’S Famous Thought Experiment, Noah O. Abolafia-Rosenzweig
CMC Senior Theses
This paper explores and evaluates the famous Mary case put forward by Frank Jackson in support of what he calls the knowledge argument against physicalism. After laying out Jackson’s position, I set out to determine whether certain previous physicalist attempts at undermining it have been successful. Finding that they have not, I use their shortcomings to inform the construction of a new position, one which I argue renders the Mary case at odds with itself and frees physicalism from the knowledge argument’s grasp.
The Possible Connection Of Gamma Oscillation And 3-D Object Representation, 2012 university of puget sound
The Possible Connection Of Gamma Oscillation And 3-D Object Representation, Thien N. Vu
We process and encode for different features of a particular object (shape, color, texture, etc.) in distinct areas of the brain. How we bind these attributes together into a unified perception of an object is unknown. Past research suggests that synchronized activity between brain areas, particularly induced gamma activity (~ 40 Hz), may account for this binding process and the basis of our conscious perceptual experience, specifically through object representation. In this study, participants were asked to look at a series of 2-D pictures of cars from distinctive rotations (00, 900, 1800) and were asked to distinguish whether ...

Biological Autonomy, 2012 Hungarian Academy of Science
Biological Autonomy, A. Grandpierre, Menas Kafatos
Mathematics, Physics, and Computer Science Faculty Articles and Research
We argue that genuine biological autonomy, or described at human level as free will, requires taking into account quantum vacuum processes in the context of biological teleology. One faces at least three basic problems of genuine biological autonomy: (1) if biological autonomy is not physical, where does it come from? (2) Is there a room for biological causes? And (3) how to obtain a workable model of biological teleology? It is shown here that the solution of all these three problems is related to the quantum vacuum. We present a short review of how this basic aspect of the fundamentals ...
The Authentic Self And Advertising : The Effects Advertising Has On The Formation Of The Authentic Self, 2012 University of North Florida
The Authentic Self And Advertising : The Effects Advertising Has On The Formation Of The Authentic Self, Lorivie Abapo
UNF Graduate Theses and Dissertations
In a world bombarded with advertisements, it may be difficult for the development of an authentic self. Authenticity is a mode of existence in which there is ownership in the sense of self, while at the same time being able to present this sense of self to others. To be authentic is to act and live in a way that expresses a genuine concern for the self in which projects and goals pursued. The sense of self is the feeling of genuineness of the self and representing this self requires actions that correlate to these feelings. Advertisements act as communication ...

Affective Neuroscience And The Philosophy Of Self, 2011 Columbia College Chicago
Affective Neuroscience And The Philosophy Of Self, Stephen Asma
Stephen T Asma
The nature of self awareness and the origin and persistence of personal identity still loom large in contemporary philosophy of mind. Many philosophers have been wooed by the computational approach to consciousness, and they attempt to find the self amidst the phenomenon of neocortical information processing. Affective neuroscience offers another pathway to understanding the evolution and nature of self. This paper explores how affective neuroscience acts as a positive game-changer in the philosophical pursuit of self. In particular, we focus on connecting 'mammalian agency' to (a) subjective awareness, and (b) identity through time.

A Nietzschean Account Of Human Flourishing: Affirming The Will To Power Inside The Contours Of Friendship, 2011 University of Arkansas, Fayetteville
A Nietzschean Account Of Human Flourishing: Affirming The Will To Power Inside The Contours Of Friendship, Christian Joshua Roos
Theses and Dissertations
In this dissertation, I examine Friedrich Nietzsche's notion of the will to power, his account of friendship and his understanding of human flourishing. Through textual analysis, I offer a new way of interpreting the will to power, as the achieving of self-realization. The process of achieving self-realization is undergirded by the satisfaction of seven existential needs that are rooted in the paradoxical human conflict between instincts and consciousness. The existential needs are the need for a frame of orientation, the need for devotion, the need for unity, the need for rootedness, the need for stimulation, the need for effectiveness ...
