Event Date: Wednesday, April 8, 2015 6:15pm | Event Description: Rens Bod, professor at University of Amsterdam, sketches the longue durée of the pattern-seeking tradition in the humanities and compares it to the interpretative tradition. Bod argues that interpretations were not always in opposition to pattern-seeking, but were often constructed on the patterns found. The common wisdom that the humanities are moving towards science when they search for patterns is mistaken. Instead, the search for patterns has been a continuous line in the humanities from Antiquity onwards.

While there has been much interest in the apparent benefits of empathy in improving outcomes of medical care, there is continuing concern over the philosophical nature of empathy. We suggest that part of the difficulty in coming to terms with empathy is due to the modernist dichotomies that have structured Western medical discourse, such that doctor and patient, knower and known, cognitive and emotional, subject and object are situated in oppositional terms, with the result that such accounts cannot coherently encompass an emotional doctor, or a patient as knower, or empathy as other than a possession or a trait. This paper explores what, by contrast, a radical critique of the Cartesian world view, in the form of a Deleuzean theoretical framework, would open up in new perspectives on empathy. We extend the framework of emotional geography to ask what happens when people are affected by empathy. We suggest that doctors and patients might be more productively understood as embodied subjects that ...

The Age of Misrule is proving to be a fantastic read. Adding a bit to what is explored in a fantastic review at rob will review, in the Age of Misrule Chadbourn presents something of the anti-Tolkien fantasy, while embracing many of its standards. Tolkien explores Britains mythology by creating a world where magic is leaving, and humanity in all its imperfection is rising. Chadbourn explores Britains mythology by taking our world and bringing back the magic, myths and legend - a world where humanity may be on the way out. All at once, humanity looses science, technology, and religion. Chadbourn shows us a world where all humanity has is each other as they fight for survival and they slowly understand what they may have gained through their loss. This is an exploration of humanity - the reality of humanity rather than its ideals, what has been lost through science, technology, and dogmatic religion, and what just might be gained. This is a series that has completely captured me and I cant wait ...

This reflective fad foreshadows some of the tensions current between nature poetry, ecological poetry, and ecological issues. And these tensions are linked to the perceived problems of contemporary experimental American poetry itself that is, that it is somehow out of touch, cloistered, urban, interior. As Jonathan Skinner says in the introduction to his new literary journal, Ecopoetics, walks do not make it into the closed environments of today s best poetry. However, Juliana Spahr has pointed out in recent readings and essays that such poetry, the poetry of walks, smacks of old-fashioned Nature poetry, a poetry that, says Spahr, doesn t include the bulldozer along with the bird. But then there s the other extreme, a poetry that too obviously delineates the battles between bulldozer and bird, and expects deep yet instant change in human actions toward the environment, while making no deep and intrinsic change within its own poetical structure. Ecopoetics showcases a more experimental ...

The International Criminal Court is an intergovernmental tribunal with jurisdiction to prosecute individuals accused of committing crimes of genocide (the intentional destruction of a group of people), crimes against humanity (mainly violations of the UN Charter),1 war crimes (mainly violations of the Geneva Conventions), and crimes of aggression (when a person plans, initiates or executes an act of aggression using state military force violating the UN Charter). The IIC has in great detail specified these crimes and has since its establishment in 2003 indicted 44 individuals, some of them influential, national leaders - former presidents like Sudan´s Omar al-Bashir and Ivory Coast´s Laurent Gbagbo and Uhuru Kenyatta, who recently was re-elected as Kenya´s president. The International Criminal Court is controversial, particularly since it is at a nexus where politics/ideologies merge with individual guilt.. Jurisprudence has since the ruthless European wars of the sixteenth century discussed ...

The poetry produced by the British poets of the 17th and 18th centuries is considered to be among the best ever written. But many general readers feel intimidated by the language or structure of the poetry, and so tend to shy away from enjoying these poets and their works. Nelson takes readers on a tour of the major works and figures of 17th- and 18th-century British poetry, explaining major themes, devices, styles, language, rhythm, sound, tone, imagery, form, and meaning. Beginning each chapter with a sketch of the poets life and career, the author then looks at five or six representative works, helping readers understand and appreciate the beauty of poetry itself.From Donne and Jonson, to Pope, Swift, and Burns, the book offers excerpts of the poetry these artists crafted, and carefully examines the various attributes that have helped to establish them as some of the greatest of all time. Writing in clear, accessible language, Nelson also introduces general poetry terms to the novice, providing
Some 20th-century literary theorists, relying less on the opposition of prose and poetry, focused on the poet as simply one who creates using language, and poetry as what the poet creates.[28] The underlying concept of the poet as creator is not uncommon, and some modernist poets essentially do not distinguish between the creation of a poem with words, and creative acts in other media. Yet other modernists challenge the very attempt to define poetry as misguided.[29] The rejection of traditional forms and structures for poetry that began in the first half of the 20th century coincided with a questioning of the purpose and meaning of traditional definitions of poetry and of distinctions between poetry and prose, particularly given examples of poetic prose and prosaic poetry. Numerous modernist poets have written in non-traditional forms or in what traditionally would have been considered prose, although their writing was generally infused with poetic diction and often with rhythm and tone ...

McGrath: One is the kind of poetry that might be called tactical, about some immediate thing: a strike, lets say; some immediate event. The poet should give it as much clarity and strength as he can give it without falling into political slogans, clichés and so on. I also thought we needed another kind of poetry that is not keyed necessarily to immediate events, a poetry in which the writer trusts himself enough to write about whatever comes along, with the assumption that what he is doing will be, in the long run, useful, consciousness raising or enriching. A strategic poetry, lets say. There have been a lot of tactical poems directed to particular things, and those poems now are good in a certain sort of way, but the events they were about have moved out from under them, Somebody asked Engels, What happened to all the revolutionary poetry of 1848? He replied: It died with the political prejudices of the time. That is bound to be the fate of a lot of tactical poetry. But thats O.K. If ...
In the maiden voyage of this column, Poetry for the Nervous, Vol 1, I led with the principle that what you love, what strikes you, what moves you in poetry is what matters. Critics do not matter. The judgments of others do not matter. Poetry is yours to dispose as your heart dictates. If your teachers or friends impose upon you some poem or poet they champion, and you just dont get it, there is no need to think yourself stupid or inadequate, nor to give up on poetry as a whole. You will find what you love eventually, because poetry in its essence is as deep within us as our desire to communicate.. From an appeal towards what you love, Ill work into something a bit less romantic. I think the best poetry is also useful. Thats a dangerous word in the world of art, wrapped up as it is in the most ancient debates about aesthetics and utility, but Im always ready to argue that gallery art is great, but does it really beat, say, a well crafted chair that is beautiful to behold, and is also very ...
In opposition to this we have the German distinction between nomothetic natural sciences in search of laws and explanations and idiographic social sciences / humanities in search of meaning and understanding. The tradition emphasizing the latter (von Humboldt, Herder, Dilthey et. al.) insisted on the irreducible historical particularity of national characters or cultures. This particularity could not be mechanically explained by reductionist appeals to natural laws, but could be understood (verstehen) which involved empathy and a degree of subjectivity (the self-reflexive culturally embedded position of the scholar was a factor). Anti-positivist Dilthey was an influence of Franz Boas who is widely considered the father of modern American anthropology and who was an important critic of evolutionist pseudo-history and scientific racism. It is arguably through Boas that culture, folk psychology, the natives point of view, and cultural relativism became to hold such prominence in American ...

When you look at the history of the Natural sciences it emerged during the early 16th century. And during those days it mainly focused on the facts like minerals, natural objects, plants and animals. The civilization then was also curious about finding new discoveries of any other new natural objects. Today this concept is derived as observation and study made in any natural object or natural history of any nature present objects.. It is said that during those days were Natural sciences started its origin it was more of a subject which was must to be known for the survival of the human beings. That is when people started observing the behavior and nature of animals and plants and started noting it down. They also discovered the usefulness of plants as medicines and foods. Then it was passed down from generation to generations. As the civilization developed the Mesopotamian and the ancient Egyptian cultures started a formalized enquiry about these basic findings.The revolution of Newton in the ...
The fundamental reason why the Greens oppose shale oil and gas is because their real target is not climate at all, but oil and gas companies (throw all coal business into the pot for good measure). It is the companies they seek to destroy and the climate fairy tale is just a pretext. The reason, in turn, why they seek to destroy oil and gas companies, is because they see them as the foundation of wealth and prosperity around the world, but especially in the West, in which they are correct. So, if they can hit oil and gas, they pull down the whole of humanity with it, in particular all the democratic and prosperous societies of the West.. The Greens hate humanity. There has never been such an anti-humanistic movement in humanitys political history.. From the point of view of climate science, it makes no sense at all to talk about human CO2 emissions, while ignoring natural emissions and natural CO2 absorption. Human emissions are only about 4% of all CO2 emissions-most of which comes from ...
The fundamental reason why the Greens oppose shale oil and gas is because their real target is not climate at all, but oil and gas companies (throw all coal business into the pot for good measure). It is the companies they seek to destroy and the climate fairy tale is just a pretext. The reason, in turn, why they seek to destroy oil and gas companies, is because they see them as the foundation of wealth and prosperity around the world, but especially in the West, in which they are correct. So, if they can hit oil and gas, they pull down the whole of humanity with it, in particular all the democratic and prosperous societies of the West.. The Greens hate humanity. There has never been such an anti-humanistic movement in humanitys political history..

If poetry is everywhere; it just needs editing, as the late, great James Tate once asserted, then well never run low on good fodder for verse. What we do risk losing, from time to time, is our appreciation and respect for the eternal, alchemical art of writing poems in the first place.. Thankfully, the Amherst Poetry Festival and Emily Dickinson Poetry Marathon are going strong, and their return this year brings new events as well, including a heartfelt tribute to Tate - who passed away last summer - and something called Poemkémon, which we think involves running around catching stray poems (gotta read em all!) Also very cool this year: the first-ever Emily Dickinson Poetry Slam, hosted by Northampton Poetry and featuring four of the best slam teams in the Northeast.

Over the last two centuries, Ireland has produced some of the worlds most outstanding and best-loved poets, from Thomas Moore to W. B. Yeats to Seamus Heaney.

The medium of poetry is the human body: the column of air inside the chest, shaped into signifying sounds in the larynx and the mouth. In this sense, poetry is as physical or bodily an art as dancing. In this book, the former poet laureate explains how poets use the technology of poetry (its sounds) to create works of art that are performed in us when we read them aloud.. ...
