Non-Cooperative Communication And The Origins Of Human Language, Steven M. Beighley 2011 Georgia State University

Non-Cooperative Communication And The Origins Of Human Language, Steven M. Beighley

Philosophy Theses

Grice (1982) and Bar-On and Green (2010) each provide 'continuity stories' which attempt to explain how a human-like language could emerge from the primitive communication practices of non-human animals. I offer desiderata for a proper account of linguistic continuity in order to argue that these previous accounts fall short in important ways. I then introduce the recent evolutionary literature on non-cooperative communication in order to construct a continuity story which better satisfies the proposed desiderata while retaining the positive aspects of the proposals of Grice and Bar-On and Green. The outcome of this project is a more tenable and empirically ...

Gatsby And Jazz: One Coin, Two Sides, Sally van der Graaff 2011 Eastern Illinois University

Gatsby And Jazz: One Coin, Two Sides, Sally Van Der Graaff

2011 Awards for Excellence in Student Research & Creative Activity - Documents

F. Scott Fitzgerald's The Great Gatsby and Toni Morrison's JAZZ both tell the story of the American 1920s, but from opposite points of view. Fitzgerald and Morrison offer two compelling narratives of the societal shift that took place in post-World War 1-era America, but although the accounts share the same general topic and historical era, it is otherwise difficult to reconcile the two American portraits that have been painted. It is as though the two authors are giving a description of the same coin, but one describes the front and the other describes the back. To the white ...


The Foundation To Photographic Success, Samantha Strykowski 2011 Eastern Illinois University

The Foundation To Photographic Success, Samantha Strykowski

2011 Awards for Excellence in Student Research & Creative Activity - Documents

View Ms. Strykowski's Photographic Artwork.

The emergence ofthe digital camera has made photography less expensive, faster, and easier to share. Technology and material upgrades aside, many self-described photographers do not have the slightest idea about what goes on beyond the obvious. What I am referring to is the design and compositional elements of photographs. What makes a shot and its' editing successful? Why? How do you follow the rules and mix in personal touch? As a young aspiring artist on the verge of entering the cut-throat world of photography I feel the need to express my knowledge of design ...


Rational Requirements For Moral Motivation: The Psychopath's Open Question, Maria L. Montello 2011 Georgia State University

Rational Requirements For Moral Motivation: The Psychopath's Open Question, Maria L. Montello

Philosophy Theses

Psychopaths pose a challenge to those who make claims about the strength of moral assessments. These individuals are entirely unmoved by the moral rules that they articulate and purportedly espouse. Psychopaths appear rationally intact but are emotionally broken. In some cases, they commit horrendous crimes yet show no guilt, no remorse. Sentimentalists claim that the empirical evidence about psychopaths’ affective deficits supports that moral judgment is rooted in emotion and that psychopaths do not make genuine moral judgments—they can’t. Here, I challenge an explanation of psychopathy that indicts psychopaths’ emotional impairments alone. I conclude that there are rational ...

Novels In The Internet Age: “House Of Leaves” And New Media’S Influence In Contemporary Fictional Literature, Tyler Gegg 2011 Valparaiso University

Novels In The Internet Age: “House Of Leaves” And New Media’S Influence In Contemporary Fictional Literature, Tyler Gegg

Symposium on Undergraduate Research and Creative Expression (SOURCE)

The now-ubiquitous nature of the Internet has changed the way we see the world, and these changes must be reflected in how we experience other media forms. Postmodern works such as Harry Mathew's "The Journalist" have challenged the way we read and electronic literature like Steve Tomasula's "Toc" have stretched the use of the digital to produce stories; but contemporary literature combines the medium and techniques of postmodern literature with the character of the digital. This project explores the influences of the characteristics and attitudes of the Internet medium as they are partially realized in Jonathan Safran Foer ...


The Message And The Situation: An Evaluation Of The Preaching Of Paul Tillich, Benjamin Taylor 2011 Valparaiso University

The Message And The Situation: An Evaluation Of The Preaching Of Paul Tillich, Benjamin Taylor

Symposium on Undergraduate Research and Creative Expression (SOURCE)

In much of Western Christianity, there exists a problem of identity for the Christian individual. The individual considers him or herself a Christian, but feels a matter of disconnect between who he or she is on Saturday night and who he or she is on Sunday morning. The Christian struggles to live a life in both the sacred and the secular. The Christian struggles to establish an authentic identity, an identity that incorporates all of the human experience. How can this struggle be resolved? Paul Tillich had an answer. Tillich developed his method of correlation as a way of uniting ...


What Should Christians Take From The Native American Church Peyote Ceremony?, Brian Rajcok 2011 Valparaiso University

What Should Christians Take From The Native American Church Peyote Ceremony?, Brian Rajcok

Symposium on Undergraduate Research and Creative Expression (SOURCE)

Native American religious tradition is a fascinating subject. Yet most Americans know very little about the spiritual practices of indigenous peoples. As a curious student of theology, I explored the modern Native American Church in my senior seminar research paper. I attended a peyote ceremony – a healing ritual using the hallucinogenic cactus peyote – and studied the history, theology, and practice of the Native American Church. Through my research and experience, I have seen similarities between my own Christian tradition and the Native American Church and contend that the sacramental use of peyote can be a powerful spiritual tool in strengthening ...

The Role Of Poetry And Language In Hegel's Philosophy Of Art, Daniel Griffin 2011 Georgia State University

The Role Of Poetry And Language In Hegel's Philosophy Of Art, Daniel Griffin

Philosophy Theses

Hegel's view of poetry clarifies the overall role of language in his system and allows him to makes sense of a difficult linguistic issue: how to distinguish between poetry and prose. For Hegel, this distinction is crucial because it illuminates the different ways poetry and prose allow us to understand ourselves as members of an ethical community. In this paper, I argue, using Hegel, that the distinction between poetry and prose can only properly be understood in terms of their fundamentally different kinds of content instead of in terms of any formal differences between the two. Then, I address ...

The Chinese In Northern Mexico: Immigration, Integration, And Discrimination In Mexican Society, 1882-1940, Yesenia M. Alaniz

Calvert Undergraduate Research Awards

In The Chinese in Northern Mexico: Immigration, Integration, and Discrimination 1882-1940, the focus is on understanding what compelled the Chinese to immigrate to Mexico and how their lives in the country developed over time. After the Treaty of Amity, Commerce, and Navigation was signed by both nations in 1899, the Chinese saw Mexico as an alternative to the United States, which was not allowing any Chinese to enter the country. The first part of the paper looks into the immigration patterns that led to the Chinese arrival, then shifts into examining what type of jobs, industries, and overall experience the ...

Measured Chance, Brian R. Kluge 2011 University of Nebraska - Lincoln

Measured Chance, Brian R. Kluge

Theses, Dissertations, and Student Creative Activity, School of Art, Art History and Design

In my practice I use clay to make enigmatic, non-representational sculptures that employ reductive geometry and archetypal forms. By pressing clay into a variety of molds, it is my intention to contrast a primal crudeness with a skilled precision in my handling of the material. I fabricate objects that range in scale from handheld to human- size. In this work, I combine references to the forms of manmade things with surfaces that allude to age and wear resulting from natural patinas that occur on stone, wood, or metal. This body of work shares qualities with the Minimalist and Earth Art ...

Possibilities For Tuba Quartet/Ensemble And Percussion, Anthony J. Burnham 2011 University of Nebraska-Lincoln

Possibilities For Tuba Quartet/Ensemble And Percussion, Anthony J. Burnham

Student Research, Creative Activity, and Performance - School of Music

Possibilities for Tuba Quartet/Ensemble and Percussion is an exploration of the possibilities and potential that such an ensemble contains. The piece is set in sevencontrasting movements, each of which highlight, showcase, and challenge different members of the ensemble. Knowing that music for such a group is limited in quantity and scope, this piece has been written to fill a void in the repertoire for both the low brass and percussion families while allowing them an opportunity to collaborate on a level rarely seen. This piece presents a very unique and fun experience for performers and listeners alike.


Beginning Conducting Curricula: Building Course Objectives Upon The Foundations Of Aural Image And Natural Body Movement, Tobin E. Stewart 2011 University of Nebraska-Lincoln

Beginning Conducting Curricula: Building Course Objectives Upon The Foundations Of Aural Image And Natural Body Movement, Tobin E. Stewart

Student Research, Creative Activity, and Performance - School of Music

Beginning conducting textbooks are structured so as to privilege the mastery of generic conducting gestures over the foundations of developing an aural image through score study which in turn stimulates effective and natural body movement. Rather than deriving motion from an aural image, students are expected to show proficiency with generic gestures applied to score markings. In learning these gestures, students not only struggle to develop coordination and effective movement, but they also fail to recognize inorganic and unhealthy movement habits and how these influence performers.

Rather than structuring a course around generic techniques, this document proposes to start with ...
