All Things To All People, Part One, Peter J. Aschenbrenner Jan 2105

All Things To All People, Part One, Peter J. Aschenbrenner

Peter J. Aschenbrenner

Our Constitutional Logic has identified the fundamental predicate of Government I, which operated, more or less, under Constitution I, the Constutiton of the year One, as a disposable government. See The Standard Model at War, 17 OCL 350. if government asserts, affirmatively, that it is disposable, isn’t it also asserting that it can replicate its systems (= structures political society) at will? OCL builds on its assertion of political society as a three-goaled contrivance. See Why Do Political Societies Exist? 2 OCL 883. Isn’t such a government asserting the primacy of the needs of civil society? By offering to ...

How Do We Know When Political Societies Change?, Peter J. Aschenbrenner Jan 2104

How Do We Know When Political Societies Change?, Peter J. Aschenbrenner

Peter J. Aschenbrenner

Predicates, features, attributes and properties of a system are liable to change. How does the change get marked down? For this purpose what facet of a system should command our attention? Any system worth the name, Our Constitutional Logic argues, is aware of its own standing in civil society. OCL considers the issues raised.

The Use Of Reality Television And Social Media By Mormon Fundamentalist Groups. Changing Representations, Minds, And Laws., Mathilde Vanasse-Pelletier

Annual Conference on Information and Religion

This presentation will describe the interactions between religious fundamentalisms, in this case in the form of polygamous Mormon culture, and information technology. We will also discuss the way that the various information transmission strategies used by advocates of plural marriage can lead to effective changes in laws and public policies by presenting the case of the prosecution of the Brown family, stars of Sister Wives, by the State of Utah.

Faith Thinking Foundations: Online Religious (Meta)Literacy Education Within A Congregational Context, Rebecca Klemme Eliceiri Jun 2015

Faith Thinking Foundations: Online Religious (Meta)Literacy Education Within A Congregational Context, Rebecca Klemme Eliceiri

Annual Conference on Information and Religion

Abstract:

Online religious literacy education framed within metaliteracy in a congregational context is a little-researched topic. Congregational religious educators tend to focus more on in-person educational opportunities regarding static content and facts about religion or devotional materials and methods than providing members with the educational processes, tools, and framework needed to explore their faith questions and other theological and religious topics for lifelong learning from an integrative critical-devotional perspective. Available literature within the subject area of online religious and theological education generally focuses on the educational endeavors of seminarians, clergy, and students within K-12 educational institutions, thus leaving unaddressed the ...

Annual Conference on Information and Religion

Kent State University

Abstract:

From its inception, cinema has been used to portray the information seeking and dissemination practices of clergy and, by extension, to present perspectives on religion and religious organizations. Initially fairly simplistic, these depictions of priests, ministers, rabbis, and nuns have become more sophisticated over time, keeping pace ...


Ever Learning, But Never Coming To A Knowledge Of The Truth? Religious Polling And Information Centers, Larry Poston, Linda Poston Jun 2015

Ever Learning, But Never Coming To A Knowledge Of The Truth? Religious Polling And Information Centers, Larry Poston, Linda Poston

Annual Conference on Information and Religion

Abstract

In our information-saturated world, it is appropriate to ask how religious communities use data that has been gathered by reputable research and/or poll-taking organizations. Perhaps a more pertinent question would be whether religious communities do, in fact, use such information – or whether they deliberately ignore the discoveries of information-gathering groups. Do religious groups who have adopted a “Moses/Christ/Muhammad Against Culture” approach to their surroundings (borrowing H. Richard Niebuhr’s classic paradigm) tend to go their own way despite the sociological and demographic information made available to them? Would the various “Moses/Christ/Muhammad Of Culture” groups ...

What Aspects Of A Religion Influence Its Information Landscape?, Timothy Gorichanaz Jun 2015

What Aspects Of A Religion Influence Its Information Landscape?, Timothy Gorichanaz

Annual Conference on Information and Religion

Abstract: Advances in technology allow for new modes of access to both secular and religious information. Historically, some religious groups seem to have been eager to acknowledge technological developments, while others have done so reluctantly. Nevertheless, the sustainability of a religious tradition depends on the ability of its practitioners to continually access information in an evolving world. Modern technology has occasioned such innovations as online religious communities and the wide availability of sacred texts and exegeses, to the extent that a person can practice a religion using entirely online tools—without ever setting foot in a physical place of worship ...


In Search Of A Tradition: A Textual Criticism Of Orphic Texts, Shellie A. Smith Jun 2015

In Search Of A Tradition: A Textual Criticism Of Orphic Texts, Shellie A. Smith

Annual Conference on Information and Religion

The Orphic (and to a lesser extent, Bacchic) mystery tradition are unique among ancient Greco-Roman cults. Whereas mainstream Greco-Roman cults were sanctioned by the state, with rituals that followed a set format of sacrifice and feasting, the Orphic tradition was a secret initiatory tradition, with written rituals relying heavily on sacred texts. The Orphic tradition is also unique in that, rather than operating out of specific temples, it has no center of worship. Rather, itinerant priests traveled from location to location with their holy books, seeking individual worshippers. Because they traveled to different locations, the tradition is eclectic, as the ...

The Poetics Of Unoriginality: The Case Of Lucretia Davidson, Claudia Stokes Jun 2015

The Poetics Of Unoriginality: The Case Of Lucretia Davidson, Claudia Stokes

English Faculty Research

This essay seeks to contribute to this important disciplinary endeavor by demonstrating the broader scope and uses of poetic conventionality, which these critics have shown to be instrumental in helping nineteenth-century women poets to secure standing in the public sphere of the literary marketplace. Women writers’ use of poetic convention, however, enabled more than just advantageous positioning in the market: the deliberate use of poetic convention, this essay aims to show, could also prove beneficial in more personal, domestic matters, specifically by teaching young female poets the conventions and social expectations of adulthood. To be sure, exercises in rhetorical convention ...
