William Penn’S Garland Songs: An Orchestration And Examination Of Music And Text Association, Eric M. Smedley 2010 University of Washington

William Penn’S Garland Songs: An Orchestration And Examination Of Music And Text Association, Eric M. Smedley

Eric M. Smedley

William Penn’s A Cornfield in July and The River for Medium Voice and Twenty Five Performers, orchestrated in 1991 from the final song of his piano and voice cycle Garland Songs, represents a creative association of music and text. The author of the text, Hamlin Garland, was a Midwestern realist whose works are from the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Inspired by this union of music and text, the author of this paper orchestrated the remaining Garland Songs, employing the same spirit of text and music alliance. This document explores the biographies and artistic styles of Penn and ...


Hannah Arendt: Pensar A Crise Da Educação No Mundo Contemporâneo., Andre de Macedo Duarte, Maria Rita de Assis César 2010 Universidade Federal do Paraná - UFPR, Brasil

Hannah Arendt: Pensar A Crise Da Educação No Mundo Contemporâneo., Andre De Macedo Duarte, Maria Rita De Assis César

Andre de Macedo Duarte

Abstract: Divided in three sections, the present article discusses Hannah Arendt’s reflections on the contemporary crisis in education. In the first section we establish some general theoretical connections between Arendt’s thesis concerning the contemporary crisis in education and her philosophical and political reflections on the modern political crisis. In the second section we analyze Arendt’s idea that the crisis in education is also related to the introduction of psyco-pedagogical approaches that, instead of contributing to educate the young to assume a future responsibility for the common world, keep them in their infantile condition up to adulthood, bringing ...

Reason And Desire: The Case Of Affective Desires, Attila Tanyi 2010 University of Liverpool

Reason And Desire: The Case Of Affective Desires, Attila Tanyi

Attila Tanyi

The paper begins with an objection to the Desire-Based Reasons Model. The argument from reason-based desires holds that since desires are based on reasons (first premise), which they transmit but to which they cannot add (second premise), they cannot themselves provide reasons for action. In the paper I investigate an attack that has recently been launched against the first premise of this argument by Ruth Chang. Chang invokes a counterexample: affective desires. The aim of the paper is to see if there is a way to accommodate the counterexample to the first premise. I investigate three strategies. I first deal ...

Growing Ethnopolitical Conflict And The Challenge Of "One" Nigeria: Politics Of State Building In A Multiethnic Society, 1960-2010, Ali Simon Yusufu Bagaji 2010 Kogi State University, Anyigba, Kogi State, Nigeria

Growing Ethnopolitical Conflict And The Challenge Of "One" Nigeria: Politics Of State Building In A Multiethnic Society, 1960-2010, Ali Simon Yusufu Bagaji

Ali Simon Yusufu Bagaji

Since October 1, 1960 when Nigeria attained political independence, it has being witnessing a steady growth of ethnopolitical and religious crises in its body politics. The central concern of this paper is that, ethnopolitical conflicts are posing great challenge to Nigeria’s unity, sovereignty and legitimacy that may lead to its consequential collapse. The worry of this paper is that, rather than diminishing after over five decades of political independence, ethnopolitical conflict has since the 1990s not only become more ferocious and alarming, but are also shifting from ethnic accommodation to ethnic self-determination. This paper is part of an ongoing ...


The Oft-Ignored Mr. Turton: The Role Of District Collector In A Passage To India, Allen P. Mendenhall 2010 Huntingdon College; Faulkner University; Supreme Court of Alabama

The Oft-Ignored Mr. Turton: The Role Of District Collector In A Passage To India, Allen P. Mendenhall

Allen P Mendenhall

E.M. Forster’s A Passage to India presents Brahman Hindu jurisprudence as an alternative to British rule of law, a utilitarian jurisprudence that hinges on mercantilism, central planning, and imperialism. Building on John Hasnas’s critiques of rule of law and Murray Rothbard’s critiques of Benthamite utilitarianism, this essay argues that Forster’s depictions of Brahman Hindu in the novel endorse polycentric legal systems. Mr. Turton is the local district collector whose job is to pander to both British and Indian interests; positioned as such, Turton is a site for critique and comparison. Forster uses Turton to show ...


Dred Scott Vs. The Dred Scott Case: History And Memory Of A Signal Moment In American Slavery, 1857-2007, Adam Arenson 2010 University of Texas at El Paso

Dred Scott Vs. The Dred Scott Case: History And Memory Of A Signal Moment In American Slavery, 1857-2007, Adam Arenson

Adam Arenson

The Dred Scott Case centered on the Scott family—Dred and Harriet, and their daughters Eliza and Lizzie—but in the recorded history, after March 6, 1857 the Scotts suddenly fade, as if their lives ended that day in the courthouse. They did not. Elsewhere I have examined how the Dred Scott decision catalyzed the transformation of St. Louis politics, turning Missouri toward gradual emancipation just as the South’s proslavery advocates were declaring victory. And I have described how the Scotts’ lives were recovered to memory through the actions spearheaded by their descendents. Here I chronicle how the legacies ...

Concepts In Theoretical Thought: An Introductory Essay, Lajos L. Brons 2010 Nihon University

Concepts In Theoretical Thought: An Introductory Essay, Lajos L. Brons

Lajos Brons

(first paragraphs; not abstract) - The idea that our language somehow influences our thought can be found in philosophical and scientific traditions of different continents and with different roots and objectives. Yet, beyond the mere theoretical, explorations of the idea are relatively scarce, and are mostly limited to relations between very concrete conceptual categories and subjective experiencing and remembering – to some kind of ‘psychologies of folk-ontology’. Thought as process, reasoning or ‘thinking’, and the role of more complex or abstract concepts in (such) thought tend to be mostly ignored in psychology and philosophy. Conceptual and intellectual history, on the other hand ...

Pi(O)Us Medievalism Vs. Catholic Modernism: The Case Of George Tyrell, Richard Utz 2010 Western Michigan University

Pi(O)Us Medievalism Vs. Catholic Modernism: The Case Of George Tyrell, Richard Utz

Richard Utz

Investigates the use of "medievalism" by George Tyrell in his book, Medievalism. A Reply to Cardinal Mercier (1908). Tyrell, who argues in favor of a modern(ist), intelligent, Catholic faith, sees the Church's reorientation toward the Middle Ages in the late nineteenth and early twentieth century as a misdirected form of originalism, which he rejects as "medievalism."

The Incredible Shrinking Pancasila: Nationalist Propaganda And The Missing Ideological Legacy Of Suharto, Robert Cribb 2010 The Australian National University

The Incredible Shrinking Pancasila: Nationalist Propaganda And The Missing Ideological Legacy Of Suharto, Robert Cribb

Robert Cribb

Although President Suharto dominated Indonesian politics for more than three decades, and although Indonesians spent millions of hours under his regime mastering the principles of the national ideology, Pancasila, remarkable little remains of his ideological legacy.
