A Visão De Homem Em Fromm, Wagner Amodeo Prof. 2010 SelectedWorks

A Visão De Homem Em Fromm, Wagner Amodeo Prof.

Wagner Amodeo

Fromm defende não existir qualidades boas ou más inatas no ser humano. Propõe, sim, existir uma agressividade instintual na natureza humana, condição de sobrevivência, mas será a aculturação a responsável pelo direcionamento desse instinto para o “bem” ou para o “mal”, ou seja, para um espírito construtivo ou destrutivo. Esse direcionamento estruturado forma um sistema orientacional que Fromm denominará como caráter biófilo ou necrófilo, respectivamente.


La Accidentalidad Vial En El País, Fernando Carrión Mena Arq. 2010 FLACSO, Facultad Latinoamericana de Ciencias Sociales. Sede Ecuador

La Accidentalidad Vial En El País, Fernando Carrión Mena Arq.

Fernando Carrión Mena

Los accidentes viales han dejado de ser tales en el país, debido a la frecuencia con que se producen, al extremo que se han constituido en un mal endémico; tan es así la situación que el Ecuador ocupa el nada honroso segundo lugar en accidentalidad vial en América Latina. Las calles y carreteras se tiñen de sangre, las páginas de nuestros periódicos se llena de noticias trágicas y muchas de las familias ecuatorianas se enlutan recurrentemente porque el fenómeno se ha convertido en una pandemia. Mirando las cifras es claramente perceptible lo siguiente: si comparamos las defunciones por accidentes de ...

El Cine De Fútbol, Fernando Carrión Mena Arq. 2010 FLACSO, Facultad Latinoamericana de Ciencias Sociales. Sede Ecuador

El Cine De Fútbol, Fernando Carrión Mena Arq.

Fernando Carrión Mena

Desde que la televisión empezó a relacionarse estrechamente con el fútbol, el formato de video comienza a tomar forma y a presentarse como elemento central dentro de este deporte. Pero también desde antes ya hubo interés e intensión de registrar el fútbol mediante imágenes y, mucho más, de realizar documentales y ficción cinematográficos vinculados con esta práctica deportiva.

Sin embargo, las relaciones entre las dos actividades no ha sido muy buena, medida por el número de películas y por la calidad de las mismas, probablemente por dos motivos: primero, porque el cine le ha otorgado mucho más importancia a otros ...

De La Ciudad A La Violencia, Fernando Carrión Mena Arq. 2010 FLACSO, Facultad Latinoamericana de Ciencias Sociales. Sede Ecuador

De La Ciudad A La Violencia, Fernando Carrión Mena Arq.

Fernando Carrión Mena

Si bien lo urbano no determina las causas de la violencia, no se puede desconocer que la producción social del territorio sí es un elemento importante en el comportamiento de ciertos tipos de violencias. Existe una geografía de la violencia que no es sólo la manifestación de los hechos violentos en el territorio (escenario) sino también un elemento relevante en la producción de los mismos (violencia urbana). Este elemento viene de la división social del espacio y de una lógica particular de urbanismo que puede producir un tipo de violencia particular acorde a la segregación urbana (localización residencial, densidad y ...

Cultivating A Common Ground: Community Gardens As Urban Infill In Springfield, Massachusetts, Christopher J. Jennette 2010 University of Massachusetts - Amherst

Cultivating A Common Ground: Community Gardens As Urban Infill In Springfield, Massachusetts, Christopher J. Jennette

Landscape Architecture & Regional Planning Masters Projects

Vacancy, as an actor in our urban landscapes, is growing in importance. As the realities of post-industrialism are making themselves ever clearer in many cities across the country, issues of vacancy are becoming of paramount concern. After all, if the density and centrality characteristic of traditional urban form are the result of forces of production and industrialization, then forces of de-industrialization could be said to have a set of equal, yet opposite results. For many post-industrial cities, these results include job and population losses, and an increase in vacant and abandoned land. The situation has only been worsened by the ...


Building Main Street: Village Improvement And The Small Town Ideal, Kirin Makker 2010 University of Massachusetts Amherst

Building Main Street: Village Improvement And The Small Town Ideal, Kirin Makker

Open Access Dissertations

Before the American small town was enshrined as an ideal, it was a space of dynamic and pioneering progressive reform, a narrative that has been largely untold in histories of professional planning and landscape history. Archival research shows that village improvement was not simply a prequel to the City Beautiful in the years following the 1893 Chicago Expo, but a rich and complex history that places the residential village at the center of debates about the middle landscape as a civic realm comprised of complimentary and oppositional pastoral and urban worldviews. The second half of the nineteenth century saw an ...


Using Popular Film In The Architectural History Classroom, Rumiko Handa 2010 University of Nebraska-Lincoln

Using Popular Film In The Architectural History Classroom, Rumiko Handa

Architecture Program: Faculty Scholarly and Creative Activity

Putting popular films to use in the classroom offers many opportunities, starting with the mass appeal that recent movies bring to the study of architecture. More significantly, film can help to teach how architectural scale and space affect the viewer. The historical inaccuracies of many movies can provide teachable moments for the discussion of significant architectural issues. And, surely most importantly, film can breathe human life into the spaces of architecture, allowing students to meet the audience of architecture—past, present, and future.

Lessons Learned In Sustainable Information And Technology Transfer Considering Culture And Resources, Craig V. Baltimore 2010 California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo

Lessons Learned In Sustainable Information And Technology Transfer Considering Culture And Resources, Craig V. Baltimore

Architectural Engineering

In terms of information and technology transfer, sustainability is defined as the ability for a society (or culture) to maintain and incorporate the information and technology in a long term manner without continued outside influence. When a major disaster occurs, like the recent Haiti earthquake, the good intentioned outside relief effort is often immediate with no lasting effects. For example, to have a new building built out of precast panels engineered and manufactured in the U.S., and erected with volunteers from outside of Haiti, will immediately provide for the local community. But will have the people learned in terms ...

Compressed Natural Gas (Cng) Transit Bus Experience Survey: April 2009—April 2010, R. Adams, D. B. Horne 2010 Marathon Technical Services

Compressed Natural Gas (Cng) Transit Bus Experience Survey: April 2009—April 2010, R. Adams, D. B. Horne

Publications (T)

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) and the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) commissioned this survey to collect and analyze experiential data from U.S. transit agencies with varying degrees of compressed natural gas (CNG) bus and station experience. This information helps DOE and NREL determine areas of CNG transit bus success and priority areas for which further technical or other assistance might be required to enable success.

Clean Vehicle Education Foundation (CVEF) staff and subcontractors developed a battery of questions and identified 10 transit agencies to represent all U.S. transit agencies that use CNG buses, accounting for ...

Ghost Houses And Trojan Horses, Ted Shelton, Tricia Stuth 2010 University of Tennessee, Knoxville

Ghost Houses And Trojan Horses, Ted Shelton, Tricia Stuth

Ted Shelton, FAIA

The Ghost Houses project was not supposed to be possible—five units of housing and a studio in three structures on a one-quarter acre infill lot with an historic zoning overlay. Yet, by using the history of the site as a wedge, we were able to overcome ossified regulations to create a progressive project consistent with our interest in dense, walkable, mixed-use neighborhoods and architecture that is simultaneously responsive to both its locus and global environmental concerns.

Through an improvised series of requests, meetings, and public hearings, the Ghost Houses became a project that explored the nature of zoning codes ...


Performance Comparison Of Control Methods For Tankless Water Heaters, David P. Yuill, Andrew H. Coward, Gregor P. Henze 2010 University of Nebraska-Lincoln

Performance Comparison Of Control Methods For Tankless Water Heaters, David P. Yuill, Andrew H. Coward, Gregor P. Henze

David Yuill

Tankless water heaters (TWH) have several advantages and disadvantages when compared with storage water heaters. One disadvantage is that the outlet temperature of the water is difficult to control. To address this problem, the authors apply seven different control approaches and con- duct experiments to test the effectiveness of each approach. The experiments are carried out on a commercially available electric TWH, using a test method and apparatus developed by the authors. The seven approaches include various configurations of feedback or feed-forward con- trol, or both. One fairly simple approach devised in this project combines feedback and feed-forward control. This ...
