  1. Traditional Landscape and Contemporary Landscape Architecture in China.Zeng Hao - unknown
    Through the processes of globalization and industrialization, contemporary China is facing big problems of placelessness and pollution. As part of that, and for deep historical reasons, China is losing cultural confidence and identity. In the design of new landscapes, China has been superficially imitating western models, so that many cities in China now resemble each other and and have no clear local, regional, or national identity. Given these large problems, it has become necessary to rethink contemporary culture in China in (...)

  2. Content Blocking and the Patron as Situated Knower: What Would It Take for an Internet Filter to Work?Lawrence Emily & J. Fry Richard - unknown
    Librarians often object to Internet filters on the grounds that filters are prone to overblocking and underblocking. This argument implies that a significant problem with contemporary filters is that they are insufficiently fine-grained. In this article, we posit that present-day filters will always be conceptually capable of failure, regardless of how granular their content analysis becomes. This is because, we argue, objections to content are best understood as objections to problematic interactions between content and particular knowers. We import the concept (...)

  5. Methodological Issues in Epistemology and Moral Psychology.Zachary S. Horne - unknown
    Between 1960 and 1999, it was quite common for philosophers to rely almost completely on a priori methods to advance their arguments ; in a recent study by Knobe, the majority of papers sampled from this period used strictly a priori methods. In contrast, in the last decade and a half, many philosophers' strategy for making progress on philosophical questions has changed. Philosophers are now relying more heavily on empirical data—including running their own observational and experimental studies—in order to support (...)

  6. Sense-Making in Theory and Practice: A Metatheoretical Foundation and Application for Health Information Seeking.Margaret K. Gross - unknown
    This thesis attempts to provide deeper historical and theoretical grounding for sense-making, thereby illustrating its applicability to practical information seeking research. In Chapter One I trace the philosophical origins of Brenda Dervin’s theory known as “sense making,” reaching beyond current scholarship that locates the origins of sense-making in twentieth-century Phenomenology and Communication theory and find its rich ontological, epistemological, and etymological heritage that dates back to the Pre-Socratics. After exploring sense-making’s Greek roots, I examine sense-making’s philosophical undercurrents found in Hegel’s (...)

  7. Information and the Evolution of Codon Bias.Daniel T. Wright - unknown
    The informational properties of biological systems are the subject of much debate and research. I present a general argument in favor of the existence and central importance of information in organisms, followed by a case study of the genetic code and the translation system from the perspective of information. The codon biases of 831 Bacteria and Archeae are analyzed and modeled as points in a 64-dimensional statistical space. The major results are that codon bias evolution does not follow canonical patterns, (...)

  29. Heidegger's Authenticity.Derek Robert O'Connell - unknown
    This dissertation is a study of Martin Heidegger’s understanding of the concept of authenticity, and how that understanding may have changed over time, via a careful investigation of Heidegger’s written works, from Being and Time in the 1920s to works of the mid-1960s. This study has two goals. Narrowly, it argues that the key elements of Heidegger’s account of authenticity do not change over the period under consideration—while the nature of his elaboration shifts dramatically, the key content stays the same.

    We contrast assumptions of communications theorizing with those underlying information systems to emphasize that the convergence inherent in contemporary ecosystems of digital technologies, online services and the proliferation of information and communication technologies are bringing scholars from these two intellectual communities together while challenging their understanding of one-another’s scholarship. It is no wonder that the theory has been claimed and called both “Theory of Information” and at the same time by some, “Theory of Communication” by others. We look at that (...)

    The project is an exploratory network analysis that examines a social movement of African-American women community activists in the attempted establishment of library branch facilities in a public housing community in 1960’s Chicago. The research elevates the activist groups’ efforts in the claiming of information needs for their community. It challenges the privileging of the administrative voice of library decision-making in an urban context, by situating the struggle in an African-American community. The network is created from thirty primary source documents (...)

    Information professionals manage, organize, preserve, create, design, implement, and control the information systems, services, goods, and devices that are both ubiquitous in and essential to our daily existence. But where there is great power, there is also great responsibility. Recent events suggest that information professionals may benefit from enhanced education and training to prepare them to respond to the ethical challenges they will encounter in their work in socially responsible ways. Improving information ethics education is one step toward beginning to (...)

Drawing from contemporary discussions of the possibility for the instantiation of values and categories in the work of design, critical approaches to questions of technology and conceptual development surrounding the design (...)

    As the ability to meaningfully process increasingly large quantities of data has improved, the need for systems to support the aggregation and subsequent use of disparate smaller datasets is correspondingly greater. The GBIF is just one such project among a larger group seeking to aggregate the smaller, focused, and disparate sources of information generated for the work of science. GBIF is simultaneously an effort to coordinate and aggregate digital species occurrence data and digitize natural history collections into a single global-scale (...)

    Public libraries have been associated with a Habermasian public sphere, but articulations between public libraries and the public sphere remain undefined. To make fuller sense of the public sphere as it relates to public libraries, we used qualitative content analysis as a research methodology to study 12 Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh annual reports from 1900 to 2010. We identified 6 dimensions of the public sphere in public libraries: Core Criteria, Internal Public Sphere, External Public Sphere, Collect and Organize Discourse, Perform (...)

    In this paper the problematic nature of use and appropriation of the language used for one set of purposes by those who have other purposes in mind will be discussed. The popular notions of paradigm and entropy are explored as one discipline seeks to borrow words, terms, and signs from other (frequently more mature and concrete disciplines. At times the original intention is salvaged, but frequently other meaning is substituted—deliberately or not—in the process of appropriation. There are examples of a (...)

  39. Evidence-Based Discovery.Catherine Blake - unknown
    Both data-driven and human-centric methods have been used to better understand the scientific process. We describe a new framework called evidence-based discovery, to reconcile the gulf between the data-driven and human-centered approaches. Our goal is to provide a vision statement for how these approaches can be unified in order to better understand the complex-decision making that occurs when creating new knowledge. Despite the inevitable challenges, the combination of data and human-centric methods are required to understand, characterize, and ultimately accelerate science.

  40. Gateways: Historical Underpinnings of a Single Internet.Bradley Fidler & Morgan Currie - unknown
    Before the coherent internetworking protocol that enables the Internet today, machines called gateways ‘translated’ between dissimilar networks, at first in the early 1970s with great difficulty, and, by the early 1980s, comparatively seamlessly. This paper investigates some of the historical processes that drew multiple, formerly incompatible networks into a single logical network. Studying these processes can illustrate the Internet’s historical contingency -- and the labor that was required to overcome the social and technical differences governing the multiple, independent networks that (...)

  41. The Policeman's Beard Was What? Representation and Reality in Knowledge Organization and Description.Allyson Carlyle - unknown
    Information professionals describing resources are often faced with decisions around a resource’s formal identifying characteristics. Sometimes these characteristics, such as title or publication date, present information known to be deceptive, incorrect, or untrue in some way. Sometimes facts needed to identify the resource or help a user understand its nature are missing or incomplete. This paper identifies four ways resources fail to fully identify themselves, through unintentional error or inaccuracy; deception; simplifying complex reality; or humorous representation. It presents four categories (...)

    I argue for three central theses: ‘intuition’ is ambiguous, in material object metaphysics ‘intuition’ refers to pre-theoretical beliefs, and these pre-theoretical beliefs are generated by an innate physical reasoning system. I begin by outlining the relevant background discussions on the nature of intuitions and their role in philosophy to motivate the need for a more careful investigation of the meaning of ‘intuition’ and the role of intuitions in specific sub-disciplines of philosophy. In chapters one and two I argue that ‘intuition’ (...)

    This study examines the role of Greek philosophy, specifically the ethical doctrines of the Epicurean sect, in Horace’s satiric poetry. It endeavors to highlight the important influence of one of Horace’s contemporaries and neighbor in Italy, the Epicurean philosopher and poet Philodemus of Gadara. This is done through considerations of Horace’s self-portrayal as a qualified moralist who meets Epicurean standards and employs their tools of investigation and correction. A large portion of the study is dedicated to the manner in which (...)

    This study calls for a shift in the way we think about the mode, meaning, and purpose of education by recognizing the aesthetic dimension. Through deepening Deweyan aesthetic theory with D.W. Winnicott’s ideas on the self, I am addressing a crucial gap in educational literature pertaining to the constitutive role of aesthetics in the growth and development of the self. Put simply, John Dewey’s philosophy upholds the idea that learning and growth is inherent in aesthetic experience because it refines the (...)

  85. Rethinking Machines: Artificial Intelligence Beyond the Philosophy of Mind.Daniel Estrada - unknown
    Recent philosophy of mind has increasingly focused on the role of technology in shaping, influencing, and extending our mental faculties. Technology extends the mind in two basic ways: through the creative design of artifacts and the purposive use of instruments. If the meaningful activity of technological artifacts were exhaustively described in these mind-dependent terms, then a philosophy of technology would depend entirely on our theory of mind. In this dissertation, I argue that a mind-dependent approach to technology is mistaken. Instead, (...)

Having defended the grounding relation from skeptics, I turn to a discussion of the various features of the relation, starting with its candidate relata. In the second chapter, I analyze the (...)

    The field of second language acquisition, since its inception, has been strongly influenced by a cognitivist tradition that stretches back to Descartes. This cognitivist influence is particularly visible in the application of Chomsky’s Universal Grammar to SLA and in Doughty and Long’s call for SLA to abide under the same disciplinary roof as cognitive science. But cognitivism in SLA has not gone unchallenged. Block, for example, argued for a poorly defined version of relativism in SLA and was convincingly refuted by (...)

  90. A Phenomenon in the Making: The Hizmet Movement, its Philosophy on Education, Schools, and Notions of Bilingual Education.Yusuf Incetas - unknown
    Education in general, and bilingual education in particular, faces many challenges in the U.S. As an immigrant receiving country, the U.S. is in dire need of sound language programs that will both maintain the use of home language and improve the English proficiency of bilingual children. This will also benefit the monolingual English-speaking students as well. This study looks into a new emerging movement deeply involved in education: The Hizmet Movement. Its emergence, philosophy, educational practices, and approaches to bilingual education (...)

  91. Theorizing Research Practices We Forgot to Theorize Twenty Years Ago.Ted Underwood - unknown
    Algorithmic mining of large electronic databases has been quietly central to the humanities for two decades. We call this practice “search,” but “search” is a deceptively modest name for a complex quantitative technology that scholars use to test hypotheses and filter evidence. Although the fields of data mining and machine learning are widely framed as novel "tools," they might better be understood as a philosophical discourse that can help humanists think more rigorously and creatively about interpretive problems we already solve (...)

  92. Agricultural Information and the State in the Late 19th Century: The Annual Reports of the United States Department of Agriculture.Christine D'Arpa - unknown
    Prior to the establishment of the U.S. Department of Agriculture in 1862 farmers in the U.S. had myriad ways of sharing and communicating agricultural information that was rooted in experimental practice and based on years of experience. Farmers both needed and used that information - information they created, circulated, and consumed. The introduction of information work at the Department of Agriculture not only altered the kind and amount of information farmers had access to but effectively sought to redefine who the (...)

  93. Exploring the Social Studies of Information.Thomas Haigh & Nadine Kozak - unknown
    This full day workshop builds a new community of scholars interested in exploring the potential of the "Social Studies of Information" as a meta-identity for information research informed by the humanities and social sciences. We are inspired by the broad field of STS. STS-influenced work within iSchools has been balkanized across a range of functional classifications and disciplinary identities. These differ from school to school, and are often seen as marginal or esoteric within the strongly technical focus of many iSchools. (...)

  94. Classical Logic and its Rivals.Blair Goodlin - unknown
    Classical logic and a given nonclassical logic are, by definition, incompatible in some sense. In some cases, this incompatibility is innocuous. In other cases, the nonclassical logic is incompatible with classical logic on a fundamental level, such that the two logics can be seen as rival theories of logical entailment and only one of them can succeed. I will explore the structure of these cases of logical rivalry by considering three examples: Dummett’s antirealism, Putnam’s response to results of quantum mechanics, (...)

  95. Nietzsche's Reconception of Science: Overcoming Nihilism.Justin Remhof - unknown
    I argue that Nietzsche embraces a conception of science that falls between the two dominant interpretations in the literature. Many thinkers in the continental tradition claim that Nietzsche believes science should be either reconceived or overcome altogether by another discourse, such as art, because it is nihilistic. They maintain that Nietzsche regards science as nihilistic because it either presumes that the world is some way it is not or functions on the erroneous assumption that truth rather than art is best (...)

  96. Object Lessons: Technologies of Education in British Literature, 1762-1851.Elizabeth Hoiem - unknown
    Contributing to our understanding of self-development in literature, Object Lessons: Technologies of Education in British Literature: 1762-1851, examines Romantic-era and Victorian writers who represent education as an embodied experience, with learning and literacy grounded in what they called “object learning” or “the education of things.” Denouncing rote-learning in favor of an induction method, object lessons promised to coordinate the development of body and mind by using the pupil’s sense exploration of physical surroundings as a catalyst for higher cognitive thought. I (...)

  97. The Sense of Technological Determinism.Matthew D. Thibeault - unknown
    Rather than argue against technological determinism, this paper reviews four ways that technological determinism makes sense: first, that these arguments are familiar; second, that they resonate with our individualistic vantage point; third, that deterministic accounts are a logical place to begin inquiry; and, fourth, that they are advanced by commercial interests. Having established some of the ways that deterministic accounts of technological change make sense, the chapter then moves to critique these accounts as impoverished causal models. Building on the field (...)

  99. Nietzsche on Value Creation.Aaron Harper - 2012 - Dissertation, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign
    My dissertation examines the significance of value creation in the work of Friedrich Nietzsche. In working out Nietzsche’s view, my strategy is twofold. I begin by reconstructing Nietzsche’s metaethical commitments, offering an interpretation of Nietzsche’s conception of values that shows it to be consistent, and then I explore the nature and importance of value creation to Nietzsche’s project. I argue that value creation provides the core of Nietzsche’s response to his two most significant concerns: the failures of traditional morality and (...)

  100. Welshness Politicized, Welshness Submerged: The Politics of "Politics" and the Pragmatics of Language Community in North-West Wales.Steven Maas - unknown
    This dissertation investigates the normative construction of a politics of language and community in north-west Wales. It is based on ethnographic fieldwork conducted primarily between January 2007 and April 2008, with central participant-observation settings in primary-level state schools and in the teaching-spaces and hallways of a university. Its primary finding is an account of the gap between the national visibility and the cultural visibility of speakers of the indigenous language of Wales. With one exception, no public discourse has yet emerged (...)
