Viruses are a weird thing. We are afraid of them, but we try to use them as cure for cancer [1]. They seem to challenge the central dogma of modern biology, i.e. the movement of information from the DNA to RNA: transfering information from RNA to DNA was found to be routine in retroviruses (such as…
Over the decades, I have incorporated a variety of disciplines, religions, and mystical practices into my daily, weekly, and yearly doings. They derive from both Eastern and Western traditions. I call my life philosophy the theory of unified white light and it is rooted in love, beauty, and gratitude. These are the guiding principles. When I act out of love for myself and others, when I act out of love for the greater good, I know I am doing the right thing. In this sense, living actually gets easier because of the clarity love brings. I also strive to live in a state of grace and make the world more beautiful and more positive, each and every day. ...
It was over five years ago that the Centre for Medicines Research organized a workshop entitled Quality of Life: Assessment and Application. This workshop brought together a unique group of participants, some of whom had been involved in studies on quality of life for well over a decade, whilst others were meeting the subject for the first time. This blend of experienced researchers and enthusiastic newcomers was a great stimulus to the discus sions which followed individual presentations as well as that resulting from the study groups. In the ensuing publication, a balance was sought between a consideration of the complex principles underlying the assessment of quality of life and the application of such assessments to specific clinical conditions which necessitated this approach. The organization in 1991 of a second workshop entitled Quality of Life Assessment: Key Issues in the 1990s resulted in a further consideration of the quality of life philosophy, concepts and key instruments together with

We are living on the Earth where the universe shows us its full and diverse variety. Every mans sight and breath of eternal space lets us feel the global harmony and flow of timeless consciousness. The vibration of universal unity and beauty originated from this unlimited space - The Sound was born. Everyone entered the whole ensemble, transformed themselves and united into the one living thing. Goa trance is a life philosophy which brings a state to the soul that gives f-r-e-e-d-o-m. There are sounds that dive through the universe making its every atom vibrate. Its like a mountain river - dangerous with its cold streaming flow and waterfalls but at the same time saving a traveller dying of thirst with its vital nutrients. This is the light, nobody and nothing can hide from. This is the darkness which can save the important presence of someone. The endless carousel ride. This is the world, where everything is possible!

First, let us look at the scientific paradigm governing each medical philosophy and how these affect the respective appreciation of the patient.. Conventional medicine is reductionist in nature. Reductionist science and its attendant world view seek to break the subject up into smaller and smaller parts and to study these parts in more and more detail in isolation. This is the paradigm of science we were all taught in school thanks to the likes of Bacon, Newton, and Descartes and their Scientific Method. The thinking is that if we learn all there is to know about the disjointed parts, we will know all of the whole.. It is this medical philosophy which has given us the ever increasing levels of specialization seen in modern medicine.. A truly holistic practice is Wholism and Vitalist by nature. A Wholistic science is one which recognizes the interconnectedness and the interdependence of all nature. In medicine that translates into knowing that each and every part of the body influences every ...

An essential introduction to Deepak Chopras theory of the healing power of the mind, Creating Health is the definitive guide to his philosophy about the mind/body connection. Blending Eastern and Western medical philosophy, Chopra puts together a clear and easy path to follow for perfect physical and emotional health. With influences from Ayurveda, the 6,000-year-old tradition of medicine from India, Chopra uses Western terminology to explain how we can reassess health and disease and shows how, by focusing on self-awareness, compassion and the mind, we can improve our physical well being. In this book, he also introduces the benefits of meditation and creative visualization.. ...
I have already discussed the fact that Jung sought in his therapy to reunite the scattered fragments (=sub-personalities) into an integrated whole in the immediate post before this one.. A Note on Jungs Reading of Philosophy:. Admittedly, Jung was no philosopher, though he was widely read in the subject. Like us all, I suppose, we take from philosophers ideas that back up our own contentions, beliefs and opinions. Indeed, Jung was bold enough to say that he called himself a Kantian. Epistemologically, he wrote, I take my stand on Kant, that Kant allows man the power to assert a metaphysical truth, and he went on in one letter to contend that he had been expressing Kantian epistemology in psychological terms. However, Hayman is correct where he points out that Jung had tried, and probably failed on philosophical grounds, to out-manoeuvre Kant by claiming that psychology can unite the idea and the thing without doing violence to either. (See ibid., 219) Kant had been arguing along the ...

The English expression homosexuality is, sadly, puzzling as as to if orientation or conduct is meant. Clearly, an inborn orientation isnt morally Improper. (An innate temptation is usually disordered, Possibly, but not unethical.) No matter if acting on that orientation is morally wrong is exactly whats at situation among, e.g., purely natural regulation proponents and SSM proponents. The exact issue at issue is whether or not becoming gay is like being amicable (an inborn disposition thats constructive to act on) or like using a lousy mood (an inborn disposition thats unfavorable to act on ...

Swarthmore, we need to talk about divestment. Were not very good at talking about it, either. When I say that, I dont mean we just never mention it-we have, in fact, seen whole volumes about divestment-its just largely been from one side. But a lot of students who oppose divestment wont even talk about it, while Mountain Justice doesnt really discuss divestment so much as it preaches it. It sometimes feels that most students have shut off and are ignoring the entire thing-and proponents of divestment often seem so set in their ways that discussing the issue with them seems, at times, futile. That needs to stop. We need to actually debate this thing-to weigh the pros and cons-because the fact of the matter is that divestment would have some downsides, and Mountain Justice doesnt like admitting it. Divestment would likely cost the school quite a bit of money. Its hard to get choked up about a slip in cash flow, but the truth is that this could mean putting valuable parts of Swarthmore-like ...
Well, no, I think this makes the argument from ignorance mistake. Failure to explain a phenomenon through Darwinian mechanisms, for instance, does not raise the probability of design. Without a positive test for design (what some ID proponents have tried to put forward, but seemingly none with any success yet), there doesnt seem like a good reason to limit ourselves to a binary world where anything not currently explained through Darwinian processes must therefore be designed. ...
Planning in general is one of those activities that most everyone has an opinion about. Those against it see planning as a colossal waste of time that could be spent doing productive work that badly needs doing. On the other side, proponents see it as the only way to avoid driving in the wrong direction from where they want to go because they didnt have a map.. Despite the demonstrated value of looking beyond the near term, many companies focus primarily on the next month, the next quarter or the balance of this year. Looking beyond that takes the planning process from near-term tactics to longer term thinking, which is inherently more strategic, taking the company to a place where they can move the needle of performance for years, not months.. This program lays out a proven methodology for launching a longer term look at where the company is going. It is by its nature strategic and not tactical, leaving the immediate actions to the companys operating plan and budget, but ensuring those tools ...
As the discussion about gender parity and diversity has continued to unfold in the wake of #TheSummit, Isaac Butler (among others) has been consistent in calling for a clear definition of what success might look like. What exactly are those of us calling for a new emphasis on inclusion in the American theater actually looking for? How can we set universally-accepted goals against which we can measure ourselves? (As you probably know, Im a big proponent of measurement on the subject of diversity and gender parity.) If we cant articulate an ideal end state, we cant mark progress. And if we cant establish a positive position-if we cant lay out something to strive for-well always be railing wildly against everything else. Nobody likes a complainer; everyone rallies around people who are taking charge and leading toward a goal.. So I decided to try to define what for me would constitute success. Please note the emphasis there: this is my own interpretation, and the reason Im sharing it is that ...

Centro Studi Poltronova per il Design (the Poltronova Research Center) was created in 2005, among other purposes, to build an archive of important documents related to the historic Poltronova brand. The research work has led to the edition of a series of publications of its most famous products, true icons of contemporary design. Centro Studi Poltronova presents a series of monographs dedicated to the most innovative design pieces that, together, contribute to constitute a micro-history of Italian design. This monograph of the series is entirely dedicated to Superonda, a sofa system created by Archizoom Associati, the Florentine studio which is considered one of the most important proponents of the Radical Movement of the Sixties.

Role of philosophy in nursing practice.. Nursing practice comprises of the three major components, namely science, ethics and aesthetic (Bruce, Rietze, & Lim, 2014). Nursing practitioners deliver the components using two major philosophical approaches, notably, philosophy of care and philosophy of therapy. Philosophy is a critical part of nursing profession and discipline because it is closely related to the three components of care. The components include person, environment and health (Bruce, Rietze, & Lim, 2014). In this regard, philosophy does not only provide a new way of thinking, but also increases nurses ability to theorize and develop knowledge. This provides nurses with new approaches of thinking about the practice, making sense of it and articulating it in addition to critiquing it. This paper explores philosophys influence on knowledge development in nursing.. Various theorists have examined the role of philosophy in nursing practice. Before examining philosophy influence on ...

This whole argument can be captured by reading just the bold bits. The rest is packing and details you could look up anywhere.). Science is, as virmaior points out, historically part of Philosophy. It remains such, and always will. Any discipline hopefully becomes a more effective version of itself over time, and philosophy has done this by including science. Science is more effective than older philosophy. But so is the rest of philosophy. No part of something can be uniformly better than the whole of it. There is space around the part that remains to be considered.. We have a tacit understanding that the internals of any given science are best left alone by philosophy, to the degree they are working and not causing damage. And we refer to only what is left over after partitioning off science as philosophy per se. But that is a polite convention, and not a fact.. Every science is more refined than philosophy as a whole, in that it presumes certain truths which are part of what Kuhn calls ...
Although little known today, the Utrecht physician and town councillor Lambert van Velthuysen (1622-1685) was a prolific Dutch seventeenth-century philosopher and a vociferous advocate of the new philosophies of Descartes and Hobbes. The Letter on the Principles of Justness and Decency of 1651 constitutes both the first published reaction to Hobbess political philosophy and the first attempt by a Dutch philosopher at using Hobbes to supply a Cartesian moral philosophy. It is also a highly original work that seeks to define the nature of virtue and vice and to justify the magistrates right to punish crimes. It will thus be of interest not only to historians of philosophy but to all those interested in the social and cultural history of the Dutch Golden Age ...
The answer to that in a short sentence would be: it depends. Now for the long one: Quine, Carnap, Putnam, Kripke and other Philosophers of Mathematics have had profound influence on the way Mathematics is done. For most of them, like Quine, set theory is just that, philosophy (Refer to Quines On Carnaps View On Ontology and Word and Object). Obviously, now, this was not one sided. His philosophy at times aided in his logical endeavours. Furthermore, philosophy of logic, and logic in-general is a subset of philosophy of mathematics; this tradition has continued since the days of logicism. Although now we consider logic a separate and independent subject, originally it was not and I believe it is still not distinct since logic has and will have direct metaphysical implications (Refer to non-classical Paraconsistent Logic). Now for useless Philosophy of Mathematics. Dont get me wrong. I dont think it is useless in general, but useless in terms of real mathematical implication. So which part of ...
With an increasing need for highly-analytic individuals who can resolve complex and seemingly intractable situations in the medical fields, double majoring in Care Health & Society and Philosophy is a natural combination. The Philosophy department offers an Ethics Track that is well-suited to training individuals to be able to think through the complex ethical dilemmas that face Care Workers on a daily basis.. Double majoring in Philosophy and CH&S allows for up to 9 credit hours to be used simultaneously in both majors (double-dipping). Students who wish to pursue a dual degree in Philosophy and Care, Health & Society may take up to nine credit hours (three classes) that will count toward satisfying the requirements of both programs. These nine credit hours will count toward the Electives part of the Philosophy major, in either the General Track or the Ethics Track and toward the elective part of the CHS major. The student will still need to fulfill all the core and area distribution ...
From 2010-2011 through 2018-2019 (the most recent available year), 75,250 students received philosophy bachelors degrees at accredited colleges and universities in the United States, according to data I pulled from the National Center for Education Statistics.[1] Thats a lot of philosophy degrees! Most of these students received their degrees from Penn or UCLA.. Just kidding! Kind of. Only 1272 were from Penn and 1123 from UCLA.. If you rank schools by the number of philosophy bachelors degrees completed, the top ten schools together account for 10% of all of the philosophy bachelors degrees awarded in the United States. This is a striking skew. During the period, 2434 accredited schools awarded bachelors degrees. The majority of these schools, 1609 (66%), awarded no philosophy bachelors degrees at all. Together, just 125 schools (6% of bachelors degree awarding institutions) produced the majority of philosophy majors.. There are some perhaps surprising disparities. For example, although ...

For good reason, there are a number of Christians that express serious reservations about the idea of the study of philosophy. Far too often, Christian leaders have been guilty of being uncritical of philosophical assertions and have unwittingly mingled pagan thought with divine revelation. The irony is hard to miss, but the fact is that many leaders are found to lean on Socrates, Plato, and Aristotle far more than they do Paul, James, and John. For this reason, philosophy has earned a bad reputation in many Christian communities where the Word of God takes preeminence. While I agree that pagan philosophy has no place in biblical theology, I cannot follow my brethren to the point of ridding ourselves of philosophy altogether for the reasons stated above. Philosophy is impossible to avoid. Even the view that all philosophy should be avoided is a philosophical viewpoint. Yes, it may be based on ones theology or on a particular theological interpretation, but nonetheless, it remains that one is ...
This module complements the examination of Kants critical philosophy, and Hegels response to it, presented in PHI2001, by subjecting the paradigm of idealism in philosophy to philosophical-historical analysis. The study of Freuds work and Deleuzes reading of Freud not only challenges the modern presumption of reason as a definitively human characteristic, and the subject as the grounding for ontological and epistemological positions, but introduces students to a mode of critical philosophy as history of ideas. In doing so, it shall supplement their exposure to the Kantian model of critical philosophy as a defining point in the history of philosophy. Students are encouraged to a detailed reading of a key philosophical texts that comprise this history, and to the consideration of those texts in the light of appropriate secondary criticism, as indicated on the reading list provided.. ...
Before continuing with our fascinating discussion I wanted, in the interest of transparency, to tell a little more about my interest in American Philosophy.. The last decades of the 20th century saw a resurgence of interest in progressive and evolution thinking in both academic as well as popular philosophy. The author Louis Menand in his Pulitzer Prize winning book The Metaphysical Club attributes this resurgence of progressive, forward-looking thought to the ending of the cold war and links it back to the classic American philosophy of . Today this line of thinking can be found in the increasingly popular literature of Evolutionary Spirituality. Some of the most prominent contemporary proponents of this philosophy are the recently deceased Pragmatismbut enormously influential Fr. Thomas Berry, the cosmologist Brian Swimme, the futurist Barbara Marx Hubbard, the author Ken Wilber and my own spiritual mentor Andrew Cohen.. I first encountered Andrew Cohen in November of 1992 when I saw him speak ...
Emilio de Ípola, described in the books foreward by Étienne Balibar as a dandy you might see up on the barricades with a cigar between his teeth (xiv), has produced a pleasing, innovative and useful book on the philosophy of Louis Althusser. Aimed originally as an account of the last Althusser, it is instead a personal memoir and a sustained discussion of the inter-relationship between two different approaches advocated by the French Marxist philosopher. I had a number of doubts about de Ípola that, largely resolved, guided my reading.. Louis Althusser (1918-1990) was, during the 1960s and early 1970s, not just a Marxist philosopher, but perhaps the Marxist philosopher. He attempted with his closest students including Balibar to produce a philosophy for Marx. By this he meant not to merely describe Marxs philosophy but to develop concepts that would, in turn, produce a philosophy for Marx. Such a philosophy would develop new concepts that would allow for Marxs thought to be mobilised ...
Philosophy is a historically evolving, self-reflective inquiry into the fundamental questions that humans confront in making sense of their lives. It examines essential features of the human condition-e.g., morality, knowledge, nature, society, happiness, justice, beauty, selfhood, and friendship - all in the search for knowledge that both preserves and transforms enduring dimensions of human self-understanding. Philosophy emerges in the Western tradition as a rational, systematic, and self-critical inquiry committed to grounding its own claim to knowledge. Contemporary philosophy continues to examine the fundamental principles that guide our thought and action, our pursuit of knowledge, and our desire to live well. Because philosophy adopts a radically self-critical orientation to its own historical formation, philosophers often disagree profoundly about what philosophy is and how it differs from other disciplines. Such disagreements - openly, critically, and vigorously deliberated - are vital ...

The philosophical model established in reaction to Positivism blossomed in the 1950s as a result of the activities of the Chilean Society of Philosophy, the regular publication of the Revista de Filosofía, and the internationalization of the philosophical community. The society was recognized by the Inter-American Federation of Philosophical Societies, the Institut International de Philosophie, and the Fedération International des Sociétés de Philosophie. Foreign faculty taught regularly at the major philosophy departments in the country, and in 1956 the first international congress of the Inter-American Society of Philosophy took place in Santiago, featuring such prominent figures as Miguel Reale, Eduardo Nicol, Risieri Frondizi, Francisco Romero, José Gaos and José Ferrater Mora. Presenters in the fields of logic, philosophy of science and theory of knowledge included Willard Van Orman Quine, Roderick Chisholm, Mario Bunge, Francisco Miró Quesada, and Juan David García Bacca.

Conclusions in a Weltanschauung depend on argument and aesthetic appeal, but also important are the set of mental constructs that provide a frame in which to percieve the discussion. These frameworks layer on each other from domain-specific to general perception and eventually into the usually-unexamined foundations of a framework of knowledge. Practically, people with very different (or sparse) underpinnings can often still function similarly within the confines of a discipline - a particular lawyer, scientist, or historian might be realist or antirealist, morally objectivist or relativist and still function in that discipline even if they disagree with their colleagues on the deeper meaning of their work. This is the case because of the layered nature of epistemology - while a particular practical epistemology may be required (or useful) within a certain field, the divisions between layers can be bridged in ways that largely mask the difference.. Certainty is a major topic in epistemology - it ...
Dr Eileen John We would like you to have a good idea of who we are and what we do. It is my turn to tell you something about myself and the degree I convene, Philosophy and Literature.. When I went to university (long ago-I was equipped with a portable typewriter!), I had never studied philosophy and thought I would study English literature. When I encountered philosophy in my first year, it confused and provoked me in a way that felt familiar-it felt like what Id already been doing with novels and poems. But the experiences were also very different. That got me started in philosophy. I wanted to understand how Leibniz and Virginia Woolf (two of the thinkers who blew my mind at that time) could engage me in deeply similar ways.. In my teaching and research now, I still work on that question. Im interested in fictional characters, for instance. What are they? Could engaging with a fictional entity possibly give me leverage with a philosophical problem? How philosophers and literary artists ...
For half a century, the English philosopher Bernard Williams (b. 1929-d. 2003) was a distinctive and individual voice in Anglophone philosophy. He made major original contributions to the history of philosophy, epistemology, the philosophy of personal identity, and ethics. His central concern was the tension between human significance and historical contingency. Everything we have and are is essentially conditioned by its past, and this apparently threatens the experienced meaningfulness and importance of our lives. But Williams questions the traditions of transcendence and atemporality, often Christian or Christian-inspired, that he thinks create the ethical threat in the first place. In ethics we can, he claims, find no absolute standpoint outside history to give us a founding certainty to live by, partly because there is no such standpoint, and partly because we could not live by it even if there was; Williams sees the unavailability of the transcendent standpoint in ethics not as a ...
The PPE program offers students the opportunity of a multidisciplinary immersion in the problems of action and reflection which shape the human world. Philosophy, politics, and economics share in common a foundational concern with the abundant and widely varying ideas of what is good for human beings and the challenges that arise from attempts at realizing and reconciling these different ideas of the good in practice. Each discipline develops this concern from a conceptually and historically distinct standpoint.. The study of philosophy teaches students to reflect on fundamental questions about nature, human experience, and our responsibility to others. By working with classic texts from the history of philosophy, and key problems within contemporary philosophy, students will catalogue their emerging philosophical commitments to cultivate a broad view of human experience and values, and to develop their facility with rational and critical engagement.. The study of economics consists of examining ...
This book offers a view of the current state of play in epistemology in the form of twelve chapters by some of the philosophers who have most influenced the course of debates in recent years. Topics include epistemic justification, solipsism, scepticism, and modal, moral, naturalistic, and probabilistic epistemology. Such approaches as reliabilism, evidentialism, infinitism, and virtue epistemology are here developed further by the philosophers who pioneered them.

In recent years, it has been acknowledged increasingly that the relationship between analytic and continental philosophy is one of complementarity rather than opposition, as previously often assumed. In this essay I will argue that, in fact, early analytic philosophy has its roots in the tradition of continental philosophy. The essay will focus on Hermann Lotzes influence on Frege and on Freges relationship to the Neo‐Kantians Otto Liebmann and Wilhelm Windelband. It will provide new evidence for the claim that Freges philosophy should be seen as belonging to the tradition of Neo‐Kantianism and, along the way, exhibit the continental roots of Freges context principle.

By their very nature, universities brought together masters and students from all over Europe and put them in close proximity. Not surprisingly, the result was a boom in academic study, including philosophy. Already in the twelfth century, and certainly by the early-thirteenth, it is futile even to attempt anything like a sequential narrative of the history of medieval philosophy. Instead, the remainder of this article will mention only a few of the major figures and describe some of the main topics that were discussed throughout the medieval period. For a more complete picture, readers should consult any of the general histories in the Bibliography below, and for details on individual authors and topics the Related Entries in this Encyclopedia, listed below.. Histories of medieval philosophy often treat Thomas Aquinas (1224/25-74), John Duns Scotus (c. 1265-1308), and William of Ockham (c. 1287-1347) as the big three figures in the later medieval period; a few add Bonaventure (1221-74) as a ...

I think my favourite area is probably the philosophy of language or epistemology, but I tend to think more in terms of favourite philosophers, which top of the list for me is Hume, who rocks. Im a big fan though of the phenomenological approach which I reckon has been ignored too much by analytic philosophy and has made it pretty dry in some areas, which is where existentialism has its strength I guess (sorry if thats a completely wrong view lol). Psych I reckon is pretty closely linked to philosophy in some areas as well, though Im too tired to make out how :P My mum did psych at uni and is a Jungian psychologist so for me its just been what my mum does and its only recently through Phil & Eth that Ive studied it and actually realised its quite interesting (plus shes a good revision source :P ...
