The publication goals to introduce a examine suggestion known as "Numanities", as one attainable try and triumph over the present medical, social and institutional situation of the humanities.

Such difficulty includes their effect on, and position inside, society; their acceptance between scholars and students; and their identification as manufacturers and promoters of information. the trendy western global and its financial regulations were pointed out because the most powerful reason behind this sort of predicament. growing the stipulations for, yet in truth encouraging it.

However, a self-critical evaluation of the location is termed for. Our basic fault as humanists was once that of stubbornly pondering that the world’s adjustments might by no means rather have an effect on us, as – we felt – our id used to be sacred.

within the gentle of those ways, the most strengths of humanities were pointed out within the skill to: advertise serious pondering and analytical reasoning; offer wisdom and knowing of democracy and social justice; advance management, cultural and moral values. the most difficulties of humanities are the shortcoming financial relevance; the socio-institutional belief of them as “impractical” and unemployable; the truth that they don't fit with technological improvement. eventually, the ensuing hindrance is composed mostly within the absence (or radical aid) of investment from associations; a lessen in scholar numbers a reduce in curiosity; a lack of centrality in society.

A Numanities (New Humanities) undertaking may still reflect on most of these elements, with self-critical review at the first line. The aim is to unify a number of the fields, techniques and likewise potentials of the arts within the context, dynamics and difficulties of present societies, and in an try to triumph over the above-described obstacle. Numanities are brought now not as a theoretical paradigm, yet when it comes to an “umbrella-concept” that has no particular medical content material in it: that fairly signifies that the numerous current new fields and study developments which are addressing an analogous difficulties (post-humanism, transhumanism, transformational humanities, etc.) usually are not opponents of Numanities, yet quite attainable how one can them.

Therefore, greater than a theoretical software, Numanities intend to pursue a project, and that's summarized in a seven-point manifesto.

In the sunshine of those premises and reflections, the booklet then proceeds to spot the parts of inquiry that Numanities, of their services and finished procedure, search to hide. the next checklist also needs to be understood as an announcement of reasons for this whole publication sequence. those, in different phrases, may be the topics/areas we intend to represent.

as soon as elaborated at the foundations of Numanities, the e-book contains a moment half that offers case reviews according to rather contemporary (and now up to date) investigations that the writer has played within the fields of musical and animal experiences respectively. the 2 situations (and relative components of inquiry) have been chosen simply because they have been thought of fairly suitable in the dialogue of Numanities, and in varied ways.

In the 1st case-study the writer mentioned the commonest end result (or probably cause?) of the technophobic perspective that used to be addressed within the first a part of the ebook: the problem of “authenticity”, as utilized, within the author's specific learn, to renowned track. within the moment case-study, he analyzes various sorts of comparative research among human and non-human cognition: like within the former case, this examine, too, is geared toward a serious remark on (what the writer considers) redundant biases in present humanistic examine – anthropocentrism and speciesism.

By Alain (Émile Chartier)

Ce livre comporte une desk des matières dynamique, a été relu et corrigé.
Il est parfaitement mis en web page pour une lecture sur liseuse électronique.
Extrait: J’entreprends une fois de plus d’explorer ce vaste domaine des Beaux-Arts, difficile à comprendre, monde d’énigmes, de formes qui ne disent mot, mais du moins assez facile à décrire. Chacun peut citer un beau monument, une belle symphonie, un beau poème, un beau portrait, un beau dessin, une belle statue. Il n’en faut pas plus, sur quelques exemples aussitôt une sorte de système se dessine, non pas tant par ressemblances que par oppositions et corrélations. Mais avant d’entrer dans cette étude, je dois avertir que deux auteurs sont ici des publications dont on ne peut se passer, je veux parler de l. a. Critique du jugement de Kant, et de ces Cours d’Esthétique de Hegel, traduits par Bénard, et qu’on se procure encore facilement. Kant a conduit irrépro-chablement l’analyse du beau, et celle du chic, qu’il distingue du beau. Rien ne dispense de lire ces pages, et je les supposerai connues. Je dois seulement avertir que j’essaierai de réintégrer le chic dans le beau, ce que l. a. contrast même que Kant maintient entre l’un et l’autre semble préparer. Quant à Hegel, merveilleusement pénétrant et fortress presque toujours quand il se donne des exemples, je puis dire que je m’en suis nourri ; mais pourtant je ne prendrai aspect comme fil conducteur son idée historique. Je l. a. rappelle sommairement. Le plus ancien des arts est l’Art Symbolique, principalement architectural ; l’art moyen, c’est l’Art Classique, principalement sculptural ; l’Art Romantique, qui s’est développé jusqu’à nous

By Norbert Grob

Den movie noir nicht als abgeschlossenen Epochenstil zu verstehen, sondern als ein sich weiterentwickelndes style, ist vielleicht eine neue Sichtweise, aber eine überzeugende: Geschichten von Männern am Rande des Zusammenbruchs, deren Tun unweigerlich in Katastrophen, Fehltritten und Niederlagen endet, Erzählungen von einer Welt voller Bosheiten, Hinterhalte, Täuschungen und Intrigen, pessimistische, zynische oder nihilistische Sichtweisen auf diese Welt, das findet guy im Kino seit den 20er Jahren, das beschränkt sich nicht auf die großen Klassiker der 40er und 50er, es wird bis heute weiterentwickelt, in Filmen wie Miller's Crossing, the standard Suspects oder souvenir.
