Applied Relativism And Davidson's Arguments Against Conceptual Schemes, Lajos L. Brons 2010 Nihon University

Applied Relativism And Davidson's Arguments Against Conceptual Schemes, Lajos L. Brons

Lajos Brons

This paper argues that Davidson's argument against conceptual schemes fail against so-called "Applied Relativisms", i.e. theories of conceptual relativism found outside philosophy such as Whorf's. These theories make no metaphysical claims, which Davidson seems to assume. Ultimately, the misunderstanding (and resulting strawman argument) illustrates (the effect of) differences in conceptual scheme more than that it undermines it.

Teaching Classical Sociological Theory In Singapore: The Context Of Eurocentrism, Syed Farid Alatas 2010 Faculty of Art & Social Sciences

Teaching Classical Sociological Theory In Singapore: The Context Of Eurocentrism, Syed Farid Alatas

farid alatas

We argue that there is a need to rethink the teaching of classical sociological theories given our concern with the limitations of the received theoretical canon, and through our encounters with students of sociology who also persistently ask that the classics be shown to be meaningful and of contemporary relevance. In our teaching, we highlight Eurocentrism as an additional and essential context for understanding the rise of classical sociological theory, and to attune students in more meaningful ways to the works of Marx, Weber, and Durkheim. Ironically, such an approach constitutes a new form of legitimating the classics by revealing ...


Calo Of A Chicano From "Carlos-Malo, Califas", Refugio I. Rochin 2010 University of California, Davis/Santa Cruz

Calo Of A Chicano From "Carlos-Malo, Califas", Refugio I. Rochin

Refugio I. Rochin

Caló is the language used in Chicano neighborhoods; a source of identity and intimacy among English Language Learners with Spanish roots. Caló shapes character and lives of many who cross-communicate within the US and abroad. This is a story of my life with Caló - as a global consultant and academic with experiences in several different communities and countries, from the 1960s to 2012.

Resistance Meets Spirituality: "I Prayed On It", Vonzell Agosto, Zorka Karanxha 2010 University of South Florida

Resistance Meets Spirituality: "I Prayed On It", Vonzell Agosto, Zorka Karanxha

Zorka Karanxha

In this article we describe the lived experiences of a Black female educational leader who has studied and worked in the academy and in the field of K-12 education. This partial life history, excavated through the tenets of Critical Race Theory (CRT), illuminates the social construction of race and the pervasiveness and permanence of racism. We determined through a series of interviews that the participant’s resilient resistance is guided by critical spirituality so that circumstances and people who challenge her also confront this source of power. Her lived experience, from student to faculty member, conveys the challenges and opportunities ...

The Un-Gandhian Gandhi And The Fundamental Flaw In The Mahatma’S Freedom Struggle, Kedar Joshi 2010 University of Cambridge

The Un-Gandhian Gandhi And The Fundamental Flaw In The Mahatma’S Freedom Struggle, Kedar Joshi

Kedar Joshi

Mahatma Gandhi’s idea of expelling the British from India’s administration seems inconsistent with his idea of Satyagraha and universal brotherhood. If he were truly passionate about kindling the flame of universal love and brotherhood in the hearts of men, with the power of Satyagraha, he would have instead longed and strived to unite the British and the Indians, Britain and India, into one, greater, homogeneous people and nation, making a platform for the universal union, as he did ardently and relentlessly with the Hindus and the Muslims for one, united India. – Gandhi, on certain key points, appears to ...


Daily Spiritual Experiences And Prosocial Behavior, Christopher J. Einolf 2010 DePaul University

Daily Spiritual Experiences And Prosocial Behavior, Christopher J. Einolf

Christopher J Einolf

This paper examines how the Daily Spiritual Experiences Scale (DSES) relates to range of prosocial behaviors, using a large, nationally representative U.S. data set. It finds that daily spiritual experiences are a statistically and substantively significant predictor of volunteering, charitable giving, and helping individuals one knows personally. Daily spiritual experiences better predict helping to distant others than to friends and family, indicating that they may motivate helping by fostering an extensive definition of one’s moral community. The relationship between the DSES and helping is not moderated by sympathy and is robust to the inclusion of most religiosity measures ...

Rethinking The Dionysian Legacy In Medieval Architecture: East And West, Jelena Bogdanović 2010 Iowa State University

Rethinking The Dionysian Legacy In Medieval Architecture: East And West, Jelena Bogdanović

Jelena Bogdanović

Indeed, everyone who attempted to read the still controversial Corpus Areopagiticum either in the original Greek or in any translation, even if supplemented by abundant annotations, would have to acknowledge numerous interpretative questions these texts raise. Namely, the Corpus blends seemingly irreconcilable pagan and Christian thoughts. On the one hand, the Corpus stems from philosophical Neoplatonic writings attributed to Dionysius the Areopagite—an Athenian convert under Paul, the “first intellectual” Apostle who himself was concerned mostly with debatable questions about what it means to be Christian (Acts 17:16 34). other hand, the corpus includes numerous sixth-century and later theological ...

Waarvan Zijn De Bronnen Van Het Recht De Bron ? Van Het Recht Natuurlijk ! Een Kort Essay Over Twee Manieren Om Het Recht Te Denken, Serge Gutwirth

Serge Gutwirth

Aan de ene kant leeft er een sterk perspectief op recht waarin dat recht constitutief is voor het politiek-maatschappelijk project van de democratische rechtsstaat dat op zijn beurt constitutief is voor datzelfde recht. Een rechtsbegrip waarin wet en grondwet cruciaal zijn, dat “axiomatisch” is opgevat en dat het recht ruim, abstract, breed, transcendent, opvat als steunpeiler voor de verwezenlijking van een maatschappelijk project en een mensbeeld die teruggaan tot de Atheense democratie en de (liberale) politiek-filosofische Verlichting. Aan de andere kant, ontwikkelt zich een perspectief dat het recht benadert als een bijzonder regime dat uitspraken produceert (régime d’énonciation of ...

Beyond Tolerance: Consciously Using Universal Energy Laws, Discernment, And Harmonious Relationship Principles, carroy u. ferguson 2010 UMASS Boston

Beyond Tolerance: Consciously Using Universal Energy Laws, Discernment, And Harmonious Relationship Principles, Carroy U. Ferguson

Carroy U "Cuf" Ferguson, Ph.D.

Every day we, as human beings, maneuver through a myriad of circumstances in our individual and collective life spaces. Central to our experiences is the nature, kind, and quality of our relationships. When we encounter differences (racial, ethnic, cultural, religious, economic, sexual orientation, the mentally and physically challenged), a common issue that often emerges in our experiences is the extent to which we use tolerance in relating to other people and circumstances. For this reason, I want to discuss the nature of tolerance and its limitations, and how to move beyond tolerance by consciously using Universal Energy Laws, discernment, and ...

The Mona Lisa Effect, gene washington 2010 Utah State University

The Mona Lisa Effect, Gene Washington

Gene Washington

A short play about the effect of the theft of Leonardo's Mona Lisa from the Louve in 1911. Many people, including Franz Kafka, came to see the black space where it once hung. The idea for this piece comes from two sources. One is the theft of Leonardo's Mona Lisa in 1911 (missing for two years) and the heightened attraction this caused. The other source was the author observing masses of tourists frequenting the Louve solely (?) for the purpose of being in the area where the picture is hung but without being able to penetrate the crowd to ...
