2010 Bethsaida Field Report, Rami Arav 2010 University of Nebraska at Omaha

2010 Bethsaida Field Report, Rami Arav

Field Reports

The excavation season of 2010 consisted of two sessions of two weeks each with an extended week at the end of the second session. Altogether the excavation extended from May 23 until June 25. Ninety-seven students and faculty members participated in the dig. As usual the expedition was housed in Kibbutz Ginosar. We are very grateful for the extraordinary hospitality that has been consistently shown to the expedition since 1994.

Passing The Torch: An Interview With Andi Beckendorf And A Tribute To Her Service To The Isb, Jeremy C. Baguyos

Music Faculty Publications

Andi Beckendorf was appointed Associate Editor of Bass World in 2001 and worked alongside the celebrated Editor at that time, Joelle Morton. In 2005, Andi was tapped to assume the post of Editor, and for the past five years the readership has benefited from her professionalism, her precise editing, her astute content management, and her steady and watchful pursuit of the highest possible standards and values of the ISB and its journal. This issue of Bass World will be the first without Andi Beckendorf at the helm, but we are not going to bid farewell. Instead, we are going to ...

Escribiendo Memorias De La Dictadura: Las Asignaturas Pendientes Del Cine Argentino, Susana Kaiser 2010 University of San Francisco

Escribiendo Memorias De La Dictadura: Las Asignaturas Pendientes Del Cine Argentino, Susana Kaiser

Media Studies

No último quarto de século, o cinema argentino tem vindo a escrever as memórias da última ditadura (1976-1983). O artigo aborda quatro filmes produzidos e estreados no século XXI, analisando os seus diferentes modos de representação da ditadura e as respostas que a câmara convertida em historiadora dá ao problema da construção da memória.

On The Value Of Philosophy: The Latin American Case, Manuel R. Vargas 2010 University of San Francisco

On The Value Of Philosophy: The Latin American Case, Manuel R. Vargas

Philosophy

There is very little study of Latin American philosophy in the English-speaking philosophical world. This can sometimes lead to the impression that there is nothing of philosophical worth in Latin American philosophy or its history. The present article offers some reasons for thinking that this impression is mistaken, and indeed, that we ought to have more study of Latin American philosophy than currently exists in the English-speaking philosophical world. In particular, the article argues for three things: (1) an account of cultural resources that is useful for illuminating the fact of cultural differences and variations in cultural complexity, (2) a ...

Temporal Indiscriminateness: The Case Of Cluster Bombs, Thomas A. Cavanaugh 2010 University of San Francisco

Temporal Indiscriminateness: The Case Of Cluster Bombs, Thomas A. Cavanaugh

Philosophy

This paper argues that the current stock of anti-personnel cluster bombs are temporally indiscriminate, and, therefore, unjust weapons. The paper introduces and explains the idea of temporal indiscriminateness. It argues that to honor non-combatant immunity—in addition to not targeting civilians—one must adequately target combatants. Due to their high dud rate, cluster submunitions fail to target combatants with sufficient temporal accuracy, and, thereby, result in avoidable serious harm to non-combatants. The paper concludes that non-combatant immunity and the principle of discrimination require a moratorium on the use of current cluster munitions.


Creativity And Contemporary Value, Camilla Nelson 2010 University of Notre Dame Australia

Creativity And Contemporary Value, Camilla Nelson

Arts Conference Papers

There are few English nouns that have generated such relentlessly good publicity as the word ‘creativity’. It is increasingly found scattered across the literature of the arts and sciences, industry, business management, information technology, education and government. It has been called the key to economic growth, the ‘decisive source of competitive advantage’, and the ‘very heart’ of ‘wealth creation and social renewal’1. It is also a burgeoning object of study in the humanities, where it is increasingly applied across spheres and disciplines, extending far beyond the artist’s studio into the new interdisciplinary schools of Creative Industries, as well ...


Method To The Madness - Why North Korea Wants The Bomb, Genevieve Faulkner 2010 University of Notre Dame Australia

Method To The Madness - Why North Korea Wants The Bomb, Genevieve Faulkner

Arts Conference Papers

Recently the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK) under the leadership of Kim Jong-Il has been pursuing nuclear weapons with renewed vigour. The DPRK is a country with severe development challenges which initially makes the pursuit of nuclear weapons in the face of international censure appear illogical. However, looking at the nuclear decision making process of the DPRK, and hence Kim Jong-Il in his role as supreme leader, a logical explanation can be identified. By understanding the relationship between the political elite and the military elite it becomes evident that this co-dependent relationship is the core reason behind the ...


The Construction Of Testimony: Exploring The Preservation Or Loss Of Cultural Identification Within Different Post-War Lithuanian Diaspora Populations Now Settled Outside Their Country Of Birth And Nationality, Milena Vico 2010 University of Notre Dame Australia

The Construction Of Testimony: Exploring The Preservation Or Loss Of Cultural Identification Within Different Post-War Lithuanian Diaspora Populations Now Settled Outside Their Country Of Birth And Nationality, Milena Vico

Arts Conference Papers

This paper describes how ethnographic-style qualitative interviews have been used successfully to ascertain the extent to which the pre-WWII Lithuanian culture has survived among members of the post-war Lithuanian diaspora now settled in Western Australia, all of whom were in their eighties at the time of the study. For comparison purposes, the study compared the experience of the Western Australian emigres with the experiences of a comparison sample of age-matched emigre Lithuanians who had settled and remained in Siberia since the war and a comparison sample of Lithuanians of the same age who had remained in Lithuania itself under its ...


The Invention Of Creativity: The Emergence Of A Discourse, Camilla Nelson 2010 University of Notre Dame Australia

The Invention Of Creativity: The Emergence Of A Discourse, Camilla Nelson

Arts Papers and Journal Articles

Creativity is increasingly cited as the key to social and economic change in the 21st century. It is also a very modern concept — making its first appearance as an English noun in 1875. This paper investigates the cultural construction of creativity in the context of the history of ideas. It understands creativity not as a given human attribute or ability, but as an idea that emerges out of specific historical moments, shaped by the discourses of politics, science, commerce, and nation. It shifts the ground of analysis away from the naturalised models that have traditionally dominated the field of creative ...

導言, Ruiping Fan 2010 City University of Hong Kong, Hong Kong

導言, Ruiping Fan

International Journal of Chinese & Comparative Philosophy of Medicine

本期首先推出邊林對中國大陸生命倫理學的形成及三十年來的發展歷程進行總結和反思的論文。本文富有哲學見地,且不作現實粉飾,實話實說,值得關心這一學科的人認真閱讀。在邊林看來,一種學問的本質乃是對一個事物的邏輯構建,而任何事物的合理的邏輯構建都必須與這個事物的實際發展過程以及人們對它的認識過程相統一。生命倫理學當然也不例外,其合理的構建勢必是一種邏輯體系的構建。所以,歷史與邏輯的統一是考察具有哲學特性的生 命倫理學學科的重要認識視角和方法根據。邊林認為生命倫理學在美國的產生與發展在本質上體現了歷史與邏輯的統一。生命倫理學肇始於美國,恰恰是在美國社會特定歷史階段的文化與科學兩大洪流衝擊下的產物:既是具有顯著學理特徵的西方現代、後現代哲學和倫理學向生命道德領域延伸和擴展的結果,也是科學技術特別是生命科學技術開始進入快速發展期帶來的社會觀念、社會心理以及倫理標準調整、醫學和生命倫理難題大量湧現導致強烈現實需求的產物。它是在一定意義上完成了對醫學倫理學的一個超越,用更寬闊的視野和更深入的思考來認識、評價生命的道德問題,並且將這一學科置於西方倫理傳統和現代思想完整而系統的本體論承諾上。無論道德多元化為“道德異鄉人”之間帶來多少道德矛盾和差異,西方生命倫理學大體都是在自由主義的旗幟下尋求行為的道德解釋和道德根據。

相對比,中國大陸生命倫理學的形成過程恰恰缺失了西方生命倫理學所具有的這種統一性。在邊林看來,中國生命倫理學的形成與發展本來也應該是歷史與邏輯的統一,可惜的是,事實並非如此。由於特定歷史階段中國社會現實以及思想和人文環境的原因,中國大陸的生命倫理學在其形成階段就存在先天性的缺陷。而且,在其發展過程中,先天缺陷並沒有得到矯正,邏輯演化過程出現了失常。邊林概述的這種缺陷和失常,在本期其他論文所論述的問題上也得到了印證和例示,諸如蔡昱所討論的臨床醫療決策權之歸屬問題,姜蘭姝等所關注的老人長期照護問題,鄧蕊所探討的倫理審查的制度歷史、運行現狀與困境問題,以及李菊萍所報告的DNA 親子鑒定的倫理與法律問題。最後,邊林深刻地指出,中國現在所具有的生命倫理學並不是、至少從根本意義上說還不是中國自己的生命倫理學,因為它所具有的並不是生長在與它應該相連的根系上,因而不能形成以此為基礎的本體論承諾。從這種意義上我們可以認為中國還沒有生命倫理學,所以中國的生命倫理學就必然產生需要建構的問題。

The Honbako Is Bare: What's Become Of Japan/Australia Fiction?, Alison E. Broinowski 2010 University of Wollongong

The Honbako Is Bare: What's Become Of Japan/Australia Fiction?, Alison E. Broinowski

Faculty of Arts - Papers (Archive)

Complementary opportunities seemed to favour Australia and Japan at the outset. A shared modern history of 150 years might be expected to be long enough for the two antipodal countries to have seeded and cultivated their relationship, and watched it flourish, bear fruit, and multiply. Opposites could be expected to attract, empathy would be stimulated by difference, and cultural interchange should thrive spontaneously without the need for frequent applications of official fertiliser. The harvest should be plentiful, not only for government, business, education, and tourism, but for the two cultures.
