Memristics: Memristors, Again?, Rudolf Kaehr 2010 ThinkArt Lab Glasgow

Memristics: Memristors, Again?, Rudolf Kaehr

Rudolf Kaehr

This collection gives first and short critical reflections on the concepts of memristics, memristors and memristive systems and the history of similar movements with an own focus on a possible interplay between memory and computing functions, at once, at the same place and time, to achieve a new kind of complementarity between computation and memory on a single chip without retarding buffering conditions.


Ex Aliquo Nihil: Nietzsche On Science And Modern Nihilism. Acpq, 84-2 (Spring 2010): 231-256., Babette Babich 2010 Fordham University

Ex Aliquo Nihil: Nietzsche On Science And Modern Nihilism. Acpq, 84-2 (Spring 2010): 231-256., Babette Babich

Articles and Chapters in Academic Book Collections

This essay explores the nihilistic coincidence of the ascetic ideal and Nietzsche’s localization of science in the conceptual world of anarchic socialism as Nietzsche indicts the uncritical convictions of modern science by way of a critique of the causa sui, questioning both religion and the enlightenment as well as both free and unfree will and condemning the “poor philology” enshrined in the language of the “laws” of nature. Reviewing the history of philosophical nihilism in the context of Nietzsche’s “tragic knowledge” along with political readings of nihilism, willing nothing rather than not willing at all, today’s this-worldly ...


The Biopolitical Unconscious: Not-All Persons Are Political, Ross G. Shields 2010 Macalester College

The Biopolitical Unconscious: Not-All Persons Are Political, Ross G. Shields

Media and Cultural Studies Honors Projects

It is a tenet of post-structuralist theory that discursive series fail in their attempts to constitute themselves as totalities. A system can fail in two distinct ways—from Kant’s dynamic and mathematic failures of reason, to Jacques Lacan’s equation of the two failures of language with the two failures (male and female) of sex. Biopolitical theory offers the most recent account of failure and collapse, now on the geopolitical scale. Given that the biopolitical subject too is sexed, this thesis asks the question: How does biopolitics fail? Franz Kafka’s aborted novels offer a premonition to a possible ...

Antigone's Nature, William Robert 2010 Syracuse University

Antigone's Nature, William Robert

Religion

Antigone fascinates G.W.F. Hegel and Luce Irigaray, both of whom turn to her in their explorations and articulations of ethics. Hegel and Irigaray make these re-turns to Antigone through the double and related lenses of nature and sexual difference. This essay investigates these figures of Antigone and the accompanying ethical accounts of nature and sexual difference as a way of examining Irigaray's complex relation to and creative uses of Hegel's thought.


Kierkegaard On Indirect Communication, The Crowd, And A Monstrous Illusion, Antony Aumann 2010 Northern Michigan University

Kierkegaard On Indirect Communication, The Crowd, And A Monstrous Illusion, Antony Aumann

Faculty Works

Following the pattern set by the early German Romantics, Kierkegaard conveys many of his insights through literature rather than academic prose. What makes him a valuable member of this tradition is the theory he develops to support it, his so-called “theory of indirect communication.” The most exciting aspect of this theory concerns the alleged importance of indirect communication: Kierkegaard claims that there are some projects only it can accomplish. This paper provides a critical account of two arguments Kierkegaard offers in defense of this claim. The first argument is that he needs to use indirect communication in order to discourage ...

This article exlores the ways that Sigmund Freud and Emmanuel Levinas each used the figure of Moses to authorize their own readings and understanding of the Jewish tradition.


Axel Honneth, "Capitalismo E Riconoscimento", Edited And Translated By Marco Solinas, Firenze: Firenze University Press, 2010., Marco Solinas 2010 Florence University

Axel Honneth, "Capitalismo E Riconoscimento", Edited And Translated By Marco Solinas, Firenze: Firenze University Press, 2010., Marco Solinas

Marco Solinas

Capitalismo e riconoscimento" presenta, in cinque saggi per la prima volta raccolti insieme e tradotti in italiano, una densa e pregnante analisi di taluni cruciali processi socio-strutturali, morali e normativi delle società capitalistiche contemporanee dalla prospettiva delle dinamiche del reciproco riconoscimento e del disrispetto concernenti la sfera del lavoro. Particolare attenzione è dedicata ai paradossali rovesciamenti delle istanze di autorealizzazione, autonomia e responsabilità personale registratisi negli ultimi decenni nel quadro di un mercato del lavoro sempre più deregolato.

Die Melancholie, Der Geist Des Kapitalismus Und Die Depression, In "Freie Assoziation", 13, N. 4 (2010), S. 79-99., Marco Solinas

Marco Solinas

Der Aufsatz zielt darauf, der Prozess der historischen Überlagerung, Substitution und Verbreitung des theoretischen Paradigmas der Depression gegenüber jenem der Melancholie darzustellen. Im ersten Teil wird versucht, einige der einschneidenden Eigenschaften der Thematisierungen der Melancholie in der Frühen Neuzeit anzugeben, auch im Verhältnis zum Geist des Kapitalismus. Nachdem eine Skizze der Entstehung der moderne Kategorie der Depression, geht es darum, den Verlauf nachzuzeichnen, der im 20. Jahrhundert zu ihrer Transformation in ein weitläufiges theoretisches Paradigma geführt hat, das schließlich jenes der Melancholie ersetzt hat. Der zweite Teil stellt den Versuch dar, eine Zeitdiagnose umzureißen: An dieser Stelle ist die psychosoziale ...


Sketch Of A Typology Of Abstract Memristic Machines, Rudolf Kaehr 2010 ThinkArt Lab Glasgow

Sketch Of A Typology Of Abstract Memristic Machines, Rudolf Kaehr

Rudolf Kaehr

A typology of memristic machines is sketched. This sketch gives an overview and orientation to the paper “Towards Abstract Memristic Machines”. It also intents to propose a concise systematization of the newly introduced terms and strategies to memristics and morphogrammatics. This sketch is introducing four types of sign-use for four types of machines of fundamentally different paradigms: 1. semiotic, 2. monomorphic, 3. polymorphic and 4. bisimilar abstract machines. Further definitions of abstract machines have to be based on those graphematic notational systems. A realization of such constructions of abstract machines, in contrast to existing abstract machines of the theory of ...

From Universe To Polyverses, Rudolf Kaehr 2010 ThinkArt Lab Glasgow

From Universe To Polyverses, Rudolf Kaehr

Rudolf Kaehr

Some thoughts about the power of speculation behind important discoveries in mathematics, physics and computer science. The exercise shows that there is no need for a compulsory ultimate unifying universe. It is speculated that just this paradigm of a single ultimate universe is unmasking itself today as the main obstacle for further development in Western science and technology.

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 ...

Power Made Flesh: An Examination Of Power In Critical Legal Studies, Neal D. Richards 2010 Georgetown University

Power Made Flesh: An Examination Of Power In Critical Legal Studies, Neal D. Richards

Neal D Richards

The concept of “power” is central to critical legal studies. Nevertheless, there is little discussion of what theorists mean when they critique an area of law based on underlying power structures. Given the rather slippery nature of the power concept, this is unsurprising. Yet, because how one defines power requires defining one’s normative and epistemological presuppositions, having a coherent theory of power is essential to creating an effective critique of the current state of the legal discourse. Such a theory can be created by walking through the narrative of the history of human interaction leading to the present day ...

Late Pragmatism, Logical Positivism, And Their Aftermath, David Ingram 2010 Loyola University Chicago

Late Pragmatism, Logical Positivism, And Their Aftermath, David Ingram

Philosophy: Faculty Publications and Other Works

Developments in Anglo-American philosophy during the first half of the 20th Century closely tracked developments that were occurring in continental philosophy during this period. This should not surprise us. Aside from the fertile communication between these ostensibly separate traditions, both were responding to problems associated with the rise of mass society. Rabid nationalism, corporate statism, and totalitarianism (Left and Right) posed a profound challenge to the idealistic rationalism of neo-Kantian and neo-Hegelian philosophies. The decline of the individual – classically conceived by the 18th-century Enlightenment as a self-determining agent – provoked strong reactions. While some philosophical tendencies sought to re-conceive the ...
