  2. Is Music a Language?Mark Abel - 2018 - Historical Materialism 26 (4):59-86.
    Marxists regard works of art as meaningful, and look for political meanings even when they are not addressing political subjects. But where does music’s meaning lie? The conventional view is that music is non-referential, capable only of supporting other artforms or of expressing emotions. Adorno rejects the idea of music as a language of emotions, and does not believe that music has universal grammatical and syntactical rules. Yet he claims that music has language characteristics which make it as political as (...)

  3. Debord, Time and Spectacle: Hegelian Marxism and Situationist Theory.Thomas Bunyard - 2017 - Brill.
    In Debord, Time and SpectacleTom Bunyard provides a detailed philosophical study of the theoretical work of Guy Debord and the Situationist International. Drawing on evidence from Debord’s books, films, letters and notes, Bunyard reconstructs the Hegelian and Marxian ideas that support Debord’s central concept of ‘spectacle’. This affords a reconsideration of Debord’s theoretical claims, and a reinterpretation of his broader work that foregrounds his concerns with history and lived time. By bringing Situationist theory into dialogue with recent reinterpretations of Marx, (...)

  4. Horrorism in the Scene of Torture: Reading Scarry with Cavarero.Timothy Huzar - 2017 - Journal of Interdisciplinary Video Studies 2 (1):25-43.
    In this article I read Elaine Scarry’s account of torture in her The Body in Pain alongside Adriana Cavarero’s account voice and its relationship to violence in her A più voci: Per una filosofia dell’espressione vocale and Orrorismo: Ovvero della violenza sull’inerme. This serves a dual purpose: first, to demonstrate that Scarry’s account of torture is implicitly committed to an Aristotelian distinction between phone and logos which mirrors Cavarero’s account of ‘The Devocalization of Logos’ ; and second, to probe the (...)

    This article is a close reading of Rasheed Araeen's 'Cruciform' works of the 1980s-90s, which brings to the surface Araeen's immanent critique of the colonial and imperialist underpinnings of the history of western Modernism.

  6. The Public Library, Democracy and Rancière’s Poetics of Politics.Timothy Huzar - 2013 - Information Research 18 (3).
    Introduction This paper applies the thought of Jacques Rancière to the concept of democracy as it is traditionally understood in library studies literature. Methods The paper reviews a cross-section of instances of the link between democracy and the public library in library studies literature. It offers a close textual analysis of Michael Gorman's Our Enduring Values as typifying the link between the public library and democracy. It critically applies the theoretical account of democracy developed by Jacques Rancière to Gorman's account (...)

  7. Wicked Problems in Design and Ethics.Ben Sweeting - 2018 - In Peter Jones & Kyoichi Kijima (eds.), Systemic Design: Theory, Methods, and Practice. Japan: Springer Japan.
    While the relationship between ethics and design is usually thought of in terms of the application of the former to the latter, it is not as if ethics is a settled body of theory that can authoritatively guide design practice. Depending which theories or ideas we refer to we receive different guidance as to what to do. Indeed, design may have as much to contribute to ethical theory as vice versa. This essay builds connections between design and ethics, looking to (...)

  8. Developing "Professional Love" in Early Childhood Settings.Jools Page - 2014 - In L. Harrison & J. Sumsion (eds.), ived Spaces of Infant-Toddler Education and Care. International perspectives on early childhood education and development, vol 11. Dordrecht: Springer.
    I reference a popularly-held assumption that attachment relationships in the home and particularly, in most instances, between a mother and her child - are fundamental to the healthydevelopment of young children. Thus, when a mother returns to work following the birth of her baby, the decision-making process about choice of childcare is likely to be difficult and complex. This chapter is based on the findings of a life historical study which examined the policies, practices and relationships which underpinned and influenced (...)

  9. Educators’ Perspectives on Attachment and Professional Love in Early Years Settings in England.Jools Page - 2016 - In E. J. White & C. Dalli (eds.), Under-three Year Olds in Policy and Practice. Policy and Pedagogy with Under-three Year Olds: Cross-disciplinary Insights and Innovations. Singapore: Springer. pp. 131-142.
    In the current risk-averse climate of the United Kingdom necessarily intimate relationships that early years educators develop with young children have become a matter for intense scrutiny. This chapter draws on a field-based study which investigated how early years educators in England engage intimately with young children to meet their needs and determine what ‘love’ looks like in early years settings. Emerging from a critical review of the attachment literature the study used an online survey, in-depth interviews and focus groups (...)

  10. Characterising the Principles of Professional Love in Early Childhood Care and Education.Jools Page - forthcoming - Journal of Early Years Education.
    Framed as an extension of Noddings’ notion of the ‘ethic of care,’ the paper sets out an argument about ‘Professional Love’ as both a term to comprehend the reciprocal pedagogic relationship which develops in positive interactions between primary caregiver, child and parent and as a core normative component of early years educational discourse; the paper grounds this conceptualisation of Professional Love in attachment theory ; it then posits the dynamic of child-parent-practitioner love as a Triangle of Love which is essentially (...)

  11. Too Much of the Self.Claudia Kappenberg - 2017 - In F. Dalmasso & S. Jamet (eds.), La syncope dans la performance et les arts visuels = Syncope in performing and visual arts. Paris, France: pp. 75-100.
    This essay investigate the notion of syncope as a ‘breaking of rhythm’ and as method in contemporary performance practice. Scenarios that facilitate ruptures, interruptions and syncopic experiences are proposed as small ‘catastrophes’ which evoke the mutable body and challenge the rational concepts of self. I am drawing on my own performance practice to theorise rupture as an excess that foregrounds embodiment. The paper takes Clément’s syncope as a starting point, and also draws on phenomenological understandings of the body, and Drew (...)

  12. "Hidden in Plain Sight": Language and the Importance of the Ordinary in Wallace, DeLillo and Wittgenstein.Allard Den Dulk & Anthony Leaker - 2017 - In B. Pire & P.-R. Patoine (eds.), David Foster Wallace: Presences of the Other. Eastbourne, U.K.: Sussex Academic Press. pp. 73-88.
    The chapter explores the connections between David Foster Wallace and Don DeLillo, in particular their respective novels Infinite Jest and End Zone, by analyzing the similar ways in which both are engaged with the philosophy of Ludwig Wittgenstein. Specifically, it uses Wittgenstein’s thought on how language use connects meaning and reality to compare the ‘Eschaton’ episode from Infinite Jest with the theme of games and nuclear war in End Zone.

  13. Euler Diagrams Through the Looking Glass: From Extent to Intent.Gem Stapleton, Amirouche Moktefi, John Howse & James Burton - unknown
    Extension and intension are two ways of indicating the fundamental meaning of a concept. The extent of a concept, C, is the set of objects which correspond to C whereas the intent of C is the collection of attributes that characterise it. Thus, intension denotes the set of objects corresponding to C without naming them individually. Mathematicians switch comfortably between these perspectives but the majority of logical diagrams deal exclusively in extension. Euler diagrams indicate sets using curves to depict their (...)

    In this paper I speak directly to the subject matter of this conference: to its theme of flourishing, and to the subject areas of systems thinking and design that this conference series as a whole seeks to bring together. The conference theme of flourishing is a direct reference to ethics, and in particular the Nicomachean Ethics of Aristotle. There has been a revival of interest in this in recent decades under the heading of virtue ethics. Aristotle defined the good as (...)

    On the basis of a recent field-trip to Mexico, this paper advances the thesis of my 2009 Malcolm Lowry Centenary International Conference paper on ‘Souls and Shamans’ presented at UBC, Vancouver which considered the cultural, psychological, and spiritual links between Lowry’s cosmic, terrestrial, subterranean, and aquatic world-views. In assessing the interface between the material and spiritual domains perceived by both the Aztecs and the Oaxacan Zapotecs, it examines the subconscious dimensions of the Mexican Day of the Dead festival witnessed by (...)

  16. Problems of Hope.Leila Dawney, Claire Blencowe & Patrick Bresnihan - unknown
    However hopeless we often feel, we are creatures of hope. This collection of short, accessible essays explores the ways in which hope is bound up with power in worlds that are composed through imagination, transformation and feeling. Hope is the most precious ingredient of power. However, the essays do not assume hope to be inherently good or emancipatory. Rather, they reflect on how hope can support and obstruct us in our efforts to make lives more liveable, or futures more just. (...)

  17. Malcolm Lowry: The Russian Dimension.Nigel Foxcroft - unknown
    Despite the abundance of intertextual credits to Russian writers, film directors, and intellectuals in the publications of Malcolm Lowry, relatively little has appeared regarding their impact on his creative mind. This paper aims to rectify this shortfall by probing Lowry’s Russian dimension in the context of his cinematic and psychogeographic imagination, as revealed in, for example, Under the Volcano, Dark as the Grave Wherein My Friend is Laid, and his correspondence. The extent of his fascination for the inner, spiritual worlds (...)

    In this paper I put forward an argument concerning the place and significance of painting in Merleau-Ponty’s famous last essay Eye and Mind. I argue that for Merleau-Ponty modern philosophy comes about through an engagement with vision – in an attempt to think its peculiar virtue of “action at a distance” – but ends up betraying this dynamic, by offering us an account of vision that is grounded in the spontaneity of the mind. In this sense I claim that Eye (...)

Concentrating primarily upon its British and American instantiations, the chapter outlines the emergence and development of cultural studies, and places this tradition in relation to Frankfurt School critical theory. Having noted some initial differences and similarities between the two bodies of thought, particularly vis à vis their differing approaches to mass culture, the chapter (...)

  21. "History is the Spectre Haunting Modern Society": Temporality and Praxis in Guy Debord's Hegelian Marxism.Bunyard Thomas - unknown
    Guy Debord’s famous concept of ‘spectacle’ is perhaps one of the most widely misunderstood and misappropriated ideas in contemporary theory. This essay will respond to that problem by offering a clarification of the concept, advanced via a discussion of the philosophical positions that inform Debord’s often dense formulations. Through doing so, the essay will show that the conceptual framework that the theory rests upon possesses far greater sophistication and complexity than is often acknowledged, insofar as it contains the following, still (...)

    This book is an attempt to reconstruct the philosophical ideas that support Guy Debord's theory of 'spectacle'. By drawing on a wide range of textual evidence from across Debord's oeuvre, and by reading that evidence in the light of the philosophical and theoretical texts that informed his claims, the book develops a holistic interpretation of his work, and frames the latter as being primarily concerned with time, history and historical agency. Through doing so, the book advances an interpretation of Debord's (...)

Through highlighting some of the key aspects of Debord's views on temporality, and by connecting those views to his concerns with strategic thought, the essay argues that Debord's theoretical work is supported by a philosophy of praxis that implies the need for continual innovation and intervention. The essay contends that those underlying ideas are inherently opposed to any attempt (...)

We are more interested in the (...)

  29. Storying the World: A Posthumanist Critique of Phenomenological-Humanist Representational Practices in Mental Health Nurse Qualitative Inquiry.Alec J. Grant - 2016 - Nursing Philosophy 17 (4):290-297.
    The purpose of this paper is to build on my previously published critique of phenomenological-humanist representational practices in mental health nursing qualitative inquiry. I will unpack and trouble these practices from an explicitly posthumanist philosophical position on the basis of seminal posthumanist texts and my own single- and co-authored work.

    While all poetry partakes to some degree in both visual and aural dimensions, Eliot’s Four Quartets examines this relationship in a particularly deliberate way, continuing a philosophical conversation between Schopenhauer, Wagner and Symons. This dialogue is connected with a Romantic concern with painting and music, reflecting contemporary ideas of the beautiful and the sublime and the growing association of the sublime with music. Despite extensive consideration of the role of music in Four Quartets, Eliot's poem has not been read in (...)

Instead, conceptual art is redefined as the crystallisation and institutionalisation of an already (...)

  34. An Objective Chemistry: What T. S. Eliot Borrowed From Schopenhauer.Aakanksha Virkar-Yates - unknown
    “Tradition and the Individual Talent” is T. S. Eliot's expression of his poetics of impersonality, a spirited rejection of romantic subjectivism and emotionalism. But could Eliot's modernist essay be derived in part from what he presents as the unremittingly “emotional” philosophy of Schopenhauer? Section 51 of Schopenhauer's The World as Will and Representation I presents a metaphor resoundingly familiar to modern readers: the chemistry of verse-writing. A closer examination of “Tradition” and “Hamlet and his Problems” betrays Schopenhauer's unacknowledged role in (...)

    The influence of Beethoven on Eliot's Four Quartets is mediated by Wagner and Schopenhauer and relates fundamentally to the philosopher's understanding of instrumental music as expressing a universalised and abstract emotion. Schopenhauer's aesthetics are intimately connected with Wagner's treatment of the idea of absolute music – a discussion that begins in his early prose writings and culminates in his essay 'Beethoven'. At the origin of Wagner's thinking about absolute music is a striking metaphor: that of Beethoven as Columbus, exploring the (...)

    The relationship between ethics and design is most usually thought of in terms of applied ethics. There are, however, difficulties with this: for instance, conventional ethical stances such as deontology or consequentialism depend on procedures that are inapplicable in the sorts of complex situations which designers commonly face. In any case, it is not as if ethics is a settled body of theory that can act as an authority with which to guide practice. Depending on which theories we refer to, (...)

    The design of academic conferences, in which settings ideas are shared and created, is, we suggest, of more than passing interest in constructivism, where epistemology is considered in terms of knowing rather than knowledge. The passivity and predominantly one-way structure of the typical paper presentation format of academic conferences has a number of serious limitations from a constructivist perspective, which are both practical and epistemological. While alternative formats abound, there is nevertheless increasing pressure reinforcing this format due to delegates’ funding (...)

    Geographies and the territories that opportunistically spring up to inhabit them, populate their landscapes and exploit their riches are merely superficial manifestations of more substratal tendencies of movement. What appears stable and static is, in fact, volatile, mutable, unstable. Coastal erosion, whether attributed to climate change or less anthropocene causes, can be read as a hyper-accelerated manifestation of geological time on a human scale. The processes of geological change, measured out in millennia and thus ordinarily imperceptible to the evanescent oscillations (...)

  46. Groove: An Aesthetic of Measured Time.Mark Abel - unknown

InGroove: An Aesthetic of Measured Time, Mark Abel explains the rise to prominence in Western music of a new way of organising rhythm: groove. He provides a historical account of its emergence around the turn of the twentieth century, and analyses the musical components which make it work.Tracing the influence of key philosophical arguments about the nature of time on musical aesthetics, Mark (...)

  47. Dynamic Conflict in Alexander Pushkin’s Boris Godunov and The Bronze Horseman.Nigel Foxcroft - unknown
    Alexander Pushkin deals with crucial turning-points in the rise of Russia in Boris Godunov and The Bronze Horseman . In the former he is influenced not only by Shakespearian drama, but also by N. M. Karamzin’s History of the Russian State . Without simply recreating Russia’s past, he challenges the ideas of the Enlightenment and the Romantic Movement, identifying rational and irrational forces at work and linking the present with the past through the use of historicisms. In The Bronze Horseman (...)

  48. The Influence of Mexican and Russian Civilizations on Malcolm Lowry’s Shamanic Perceptions.Nigel Foxcroft - unknown
    This study of shamanic and psychogeographic influences on the work of Malcolm Lowry considers psychological, anthropological, and ethnographic forces - cultural, social, and linguistic. It elucidates Lowry’s complex mind-set and examines East-West cross-cultural and historical factors. The impact of Sir James Frazer’s ethnographic research and of the actions of Hernán Cortés on Aztec civilization is discussed, as reflected in the novel, Under the Volcano , set in Mexico on the Día de Muertos, or Day of the Dead. The way in (...)

  49. The Mutuality of Emotions and Learning in Organizations.B. Simpson & Nicholas Marshall - unknown
    The interplay between emotion and learning is a continuing source of debate and inquiry in organization studies, attracting an increasing number of important contributions. However, a detailed understanding of the interaction between emotion and learning remains elusive. In an effort to extend the existing debate, this article offers an alternative approach that draws on the tradition of pragmatist philosophy, where emotion and learning can both be defined as dynamic processes that emerge in the relational context of social transactions. The mutually (...)

We draw on separate but related research interests: one focused on the design process, especially the significance of drawing, and the other on the ethics of designing for the public realm, with reference to Bakhtinian dialogism. Our investigation concentrates on two aspects of the design process both of which can be thought of in terms of conversation – first, (...)

  58. Complicity and Modularization: How Universities Were Made Safe for the Market.Bob Brecher - 2005 - Critical Quarterly 476 (1-2):77-82.
    Education has always occupied a contradictory position in society, expected to ensure compliance and continuity and yet to encourage critique and renewal. Since the early 1980s, however, successive UK governments have directly mobilised education, and higher education in particular, as an ideological tool in the task of embedding neo-liberalism as ‘common sense’. Modularisation has been in the vanguard, first in the universities, more latterly at secondary level. The effect has been disastrous: here as elsewhere, choice has become depressingly fetishised; knowledge, (...)

Moreover, I contend that Steinhoff’s thesis about the myth of justified war, despite being too strong, does not (...)

    J. M. Coetzee’s Foe has been heralded as a record of the trajectory of the English novel and as a postcolonial retelling of Daniel Defoe’s Robinson Crusoe . It is also a testament both to the power and, ironically, to the latent limitations of language - language as an expression of truth and as the antithesis of silence. With the sleight-of-hand of a magician, the wordsmith is seen as being divinely inspired. Logocentrism is considered as a challenge to phonocentrism. However, (...)

  69. Dig for Victory! Anti-Consumerism, Austerity, and New Historical Subjectivities.Rebecca Bramall - unknown
    In recent years, austerity-related discourses have become a popular means of imagining and promoting more sustainable living. This article situates the re-emergence of the slogan ‘dig for victory’ in the wider discursive formation of ‘anti-consumerism’, and explores the relationship between the ‘defetishizing’ qualities of commodity histories and the constitution of ethico-political consuming subjects. Following Laclau’s notion that a conversion of subjectivity results from persuasion, I suggest that the persuasiveness of ‘dig for victory’ lies in its insistence upon historical solutions to (...)

    The so-called ticking bomb is invoked by philosophers and lawyers trying to justify, on behalf of their political masters, the use of torture in extremis. I show that the scenario is spurious; and that the likely consequences of the use of interrogational torture in such cases are disastrous. Finally, I test the argument against a real case.

    Even people who think torture is justified in certain circumstances regard it - to say the least - as undesirable, however necessary they think it is. So I approach the issue by analysing the extreme case where people such as Dershowitz, Posner and Walzer think torture is justified, the so-called ticking bomb scenario. And since the justification offered is always consequentialist - no one thinks that torture is in any way “good in itself” – I confine myself to consequentialist arguments. (...)

    For a few years in the 1980s, Andrea Dworkin’s Pornography: Men Possessing Women appeared to have changed the intellectual landscape – as well as some people’s lives. Pornography, she argued, not only constitutes violence against women; it constitutes also the main conduit for such violence, of which rape is at once the prime example and the central image. In short, it is patriarchy’s most powerful weapon. Given that, feminists’ single most important task is to deal with pornography. By the early (...)

    I argue that neo-liberalism requires a managerialist view of our universities; and to the extent that managerialism cannot be ameliorated, to that extent neo-liberalism signals the end of universities as places of learning. Rather than calling for “friendlier” management practice, we need to organise opposition by articulating and rallying around some vision of what the ends should be of the university, and which managing such an institution should therefore serve. Such a vision, whatever exactly its details might consist in, would (...)

    This chapter argues against Frank Furedi’s urging of a ‘pre-political’ humanism. Having considered the possible bases of appeals to "human nature" as a starting-point for political claims, I argue that, unless we already have a pre-existent non- or anti-humanist commitment, the movement in appeals to "human nature" is from our philosophical/political commitment to our view of it. But since that is precisely what the call for a pre-political humanism opposes, it founders on two difficulties. First, in what sense might a (...)

    Fulford’s discussion of ‘values-based practice’ as a model for medical ethics is deeply puzzling. First, it remains unclear what exactly he takes values to be or how tyhey can be based in clinical skills. Second, his proposal does not make it clear whose values these are supposed to be. I conclude that his attempt in effect to take the morality out of ethics fails.

    The chapter argues that communitarianism is the ‘postmodern bourgeois liberalism’ that Rorty, probably the leading avowedly epistemological, rather than political, or merely political, communitarian, describes himself as espousing. Proceeding by way of a detailed discussion of Philip Selznick’s definitive ‘Social Justice: a Communitarian Perspective’-- in which he seeks ‘to reaffirm, and to clarify if I can, the communitarian commitment to social justice’ -- I show that rooted in the particular as communitarianism is, it cannot but reflect the values, beliefs and (...)

Habermas argues that communication harbours an implicit promise, that it is underpinned by a a claim to be valid which is in principle subject to verification. A close reading of Habermas's badic theoretical decisions demosntrates what communicative rationality occludes in the study of language. Habermas sidelines concerns about the ineliminable power underlying any communication, and occludes any focus on the slipperiness of meaning. The critique has implications for the (...)
