  1. Corporate Environmental Reporting.L. Morrison - forthcoming - Taylor and Francis.
    This book explores corporate environmental discourse by examining a sample of corporate environmental reports through the lens of environmental philosophy. Findings include the predominant use of a dualistic approach towards nature, which highlights the perceived 'separateness' of companies from the natural world. Also explored are the corporate articulations of interconnectivity and transcendence, two philosophical approaches that are also in common use in western culture. The expression of these themes reveals the discursive underpinnings of a harmful relationship with nature. Exploring the (...)

  2. So How Does It Work? - Rhizomatic Methodologies.E. Honan & M. Sellers - 2006 - In P. L. Jeffery (ed.), AARE Education Research Conference. Coldstream, Victoria: AARE. pp. 1-9.
    In this paper, we explore two different approaches to the development of a rhizomatic methodology. In a rhizomatic fashion, we map the connections and disconnections between and across these different pathways. Three connections are described: first, writing a rhizomatic text that is non-linear and self-consciously part of the research method; second, using rhizomatic thought to analyse the discourses operating within data; and third, following Deleuzian lines of flight that connect and link disparate forms of data so that plausible readings can (...)

  3. Immanent Maternal: Figures of Time in Aristotle, Bergson and Irigaray.R. Hill - 2019 - In Emanuela Bianchi, Sara Brill & Brooke Holmes (eds.), Antiquities Beyond Humanism. Oxford University Press. pp. 271-286.
    This chapter affirm a thinking of time as difference. It does not claim to figure time as such, because whatever time is, time remains essentially in excess of figuration. Instead this chapter elaborates instances of the effort to think time as difference in Aristotle, Henri Bergson, and Luce Irigaray. I suggest that each of these philosophers affirms the fundamentally elusive nature of time while also articulating valuable ideas for thinking time as difference.

  5. Self-Compassion Moderates the Perfectionism and Depression Link in Both Adolescence and Adulthood.M. Ferrari, K. Yap, N. Scott, D. Einstein & J. Ciarrochi - 2018 - PLoS ONE 13 (2):1-19.
    Background Psychological practitioners often seek to directly change the form or frequency of clients' maladaptive perfectionist thoughts, because such thoughts predict future depression. Indirect strategies, such as self-compassion interventions, that seek to change clients' relationships to difficult thoughts, rather than trying to change the thoughts directly could be just as effective. This study aimed to investigate whether self-compassion moderated, or weakened, the relationship between high perfectionism and high depression symptoms in both adolescence and adulthood. Methods The present study utilised anonymous (...)

  6. The Role of Environment Clubs in Promoting Ecocentrism in Secondary Schools: Student Identity and Relationship to the Earth.W. Smith - 2019 - Journal of Environmental Education 50 (1):52-71.
    This qualitative study used a deep ecology lens and the New Environmental Paradigm to investigate anthropocentrism and ecocentrism in 30 secondary school environment club students from three schools in Victoria, Australia. The work repositions the deep ecology philosophy as a posthumanist/relational ideology, providing novel perspectives based on kinship with the earth. Open-ended interviews assessed the alignment of attitudes, beliefs, and behaviors along a Deep Ecology Spectrum. Key aspects of deep ecology were confirmed through the study findings including biospherical egalitarianism, limits (...)

  7. Archaeologies Of Diving: Paul Carter's Engagement With Italy.P. Carter & R. Trape - 2018 - Dipartimento di Lingue E Letterature Straniere 16 (18):227-238.
    The prolific Australian author and artist, Paul Carter has made an important contribution to the reconceptualisation of colonial cultures and their postcolonial prospects. As an artist and place-maker, his work is widely published and studied. However, the important Italian engagement underwriting his scholarly and creative production has not been widely studied. This article attempts to rectify the omission. It offers a chronological overview of Carter's forty-year engagement with situations in Italian urbanism, art and philosophy. It also isolates key themes: archipelagic (...)

  8. Drug Dog Affects: Accounting for the Broad Social, Emotional and Health Impacts of General Drug Detection Dog Operations in Australia.P. Malins - 2019 - International Journal of Drug Policy 67:63-71.
    Background: Drug detection dogs are increasingly being deployed by policing agencies in Australia and elsewhere to home in on people carrying illicit drugs in a broad range of social contexts including at music festivals, on public transport and in a range of everyday urban spaces. Significant concerns have been raised about their limited deterrence and detection efficacy and tendency to increase drug-related health harms including overdose. Yet the complex ways in which these effects play out, and the broader impacts they (...)

  9. Assessing the Significance of Heidegger's Black Notebooks.J. Malpas - 2018 - Geographica Helvetica 73 (1):109-114.
    The publication of Heidegger's Black Notebooks has provoked a storm of controversy. Much of this has centred on the pro-Nazi and anti-Semitic comments the volumes contain. But these aspects of the Notebooks are perhaps the least surprising and important. This essay offers a summary overview of the issues to which the Notebooks give rise, at the same time as it also aims to provide a preliminary assessment of their overall significance, especially in relation to what they show about the nature (...)

  10. Understanding and Applying Research Paradigms in Educational Contexts.A. Kuyini - 2017 - International Journal of Higher Education 6 (5):26-29.
    The concept of research paradigm is one that many higher degree research students, and even early career researchers, find elusive to articulate, and challenging to apply in their research proposals. Adopting an ethnographic and hermeneutic methodology, the present paper draws upon our experiences as lecturers in Research Methods over many years, and upon pertinent literature to explain the meaning of research paradigm. The paper elucidates the key aspects of research paradigms that researchers should understand well to be able to address (...)

  11. Practices of Readiness: Punctuation, Poise and the Contingencies of Participatory Design.Y. Akama & A. Light - 2018 - In Liesbeth Huybrechts, Maurizio Teli, Ann Light, Yanki Lee, Julia Garde, John Vines, Eva Brandt, Anne Maire Kanstrup & Keld Bødker (eds.), Proceedings of the 15th Participatory Design Conference: Full Papers - Volume 1. Belgium: Hasselt and Genk.
    How do we ready ourselves to intervene responsively in the contingent situations that arise in co-designing to make change? How do we attune to group dynamics and respond ethically to unpredictable developments when working with 'community'? Participatory Design can contribute to social transitions, yet its focus is often tightly tuned to technique for designing ICT at the cost of participatory practice. We challenge PD conventions by addressing what happens as we step into a situation to alter it with others, an (...)

  12. Essaying Bodies, Bodying Essays: Write in the Middle is a Creative-Critical Research Practice.M. Sempert - 2018 - Dissertation, RMIT University
    This PhD blends three practices that are not ordinarily put together: creative writing, acupuncture, and process-oriented philosophy. An important aim of this practice-led research is to re-present notions of body through the writing of a series of essays that demonstrate how creative and critical components can move together within one body, and also within a collection of text-bodies. The PhD explores the relation between `lyric' and `essay' and how this relationship can generate a more-than quality that has the potential to (...)

  13. Irremediability: On the Very Concept of Digital Ontology.J. Clemens & A. Nash - 2019 - In Amand Lagerkvist (ed.), Digital Existence. Oxon, U.K.: Routledge. pp. 29-60.
    In Chapter 1, "Irremediability: On the Very Concept of 'Digital Ontol- ogy,'" Justin Clemens and Adam Nash set out by questioning whether there is such a thing as digital ontology at all, and if so, how it is different from 'traditional ontology,' or, at least, from 'non-digital' or 'pre-digital' ontol- ogy. They also probe what the adjective 'digital' actually signifies, includ- ing how it differs from 'data' or 'information.' The authors argue that the digital may in fact overturn the concept (...)

    How should a free society protect privacy? Dramatic changes in national security law and surveillance, as well as technological changes from social media to smart cities mean that our ideas about privacy and its protection are being challenged like never before. In this interdisciplinary book, Chris Berg explores what classical liberal approaches to privacy can bring to current debates about surveillance, encryption and new financial technologies. Ultimately, he argues that the principles of classical liberalism the rule of law, individual rights, (...)

  17. Field Theory, Media Change and the New Citizen Movements: Spain's 'Real Democracy' Turn as a Series of Fields and Spaces.J. Postill - 2017 - Recerca 21:15-36.
    post-Bourdieu version of field theory can produce nuanced analyses of the relationship between media change, the new citizen movements and ongoing struggles for democratic renewal. Through the case of Spain's indignados movement and its political offshoots, I explore the potential uses of a range of field concepts and propose a conceptual distinction between «field of civic action» and «dispersed civic space». Spain's recent political changes are not a continuous flow of events but rather a series of discrete, ephemeral fields of (...)

    This exegesis questions and explores the types of identities that are emerging as a result of human engagement with contemporary communications and media technology. These identities are communicated, shaped and defined by the way we appropriate and engage with a smorgasbord of communications and media consumption technologies which merge in our imaginations to form a technosocial mediascape. As artist and teacher, consumer and prosumer, I participate in the technosocial mediascape, along with colleagues, students, artists, friends and family members. As we (...)

  19. The Structure of a Fundamental Intellectual Process for the Scholarship of Sustainability.A. Hossain - unknown
    This thesis addresses fundamental issues in sustainability thinking, especially in relation to its epistemological and methodological bases. The sustainability crisis has invoked multiple schools of thought cross-cutting wide range of human activities/ scholarships. The resultant diversity of perspectives has imparted a high degree of ambiguity, and an intellectual ‘looseness’, potentially obfuscating many sustainability issues, which in consequence deepened social confusion and political inaction. Despite this, sustainability has taken on a certain moral tone as a normative goal of society, which is (...)

  20. Rethinking Ethical Leadership Using Process Metaphysics.M. Dibben, M. Wood, R. Macklin & R. Riggio - unknown
    Ideas and knowledge of ethical leadership as something accomplished between the leader and the led, are becoming increasingly valuable. We propose a view from process philosophy in which relations determine individual leaders and followers, not the reverse. Each individual is a locus, in which a plurality of relational determinations interacts; the ethics of leadership is situated within this. The process perspective views leadership as an occasion we experience subjectively within ourselves, instead of simply looking at it objectively from the outside. (...)

    The purpose of this review is to critique the social and environmental psychology literature on spaces and places with a focus on consumer culture and neoliberalism. By drawing on social theory and the Continental philosophical literature, the review argues that an alternative approach to knowledge production is required. To this end, recommendations are provided for what a psychogeographical approach in social and environmental psychology could look like. It argues that such work could be of benefit to academic and local communities (...)

    In this article we propose an approach to digital health tracking technologies that draws on design anthropology. This entails re-thinking the pedagogical importance of personal data as lying in how they participate in the constitution of new possibilities that enable people to learn about, and configure, their everyday health in new ways. There have been two dominant strands in traditional debates in the field of pedagogy: one that refers to processes of teaching people to do things in particular ways; and (...)

  23. Financial Economics and Non-Representative Art.C. Schinckus - 2012 - .
    In this article, I consider financial economics as an artistic science in which interpretation plays a key role. After having reminded the importance of the Efficient Market Hypothesis [EMH] in the development of institutional frameworks, we present EMH as a work of art-we illustrate this point by considering EMH as an ironic and a non-representative art in which the theoretical picture tends to replace the reality. This process leads to the creation of a 'hyper-reality' that is paradoxically unable to predict (...)

  24. Visual Finance.C. Schinckus & I. Christiansen - 2012 - .
    Finance is well known to be a very mathematical area of knowledge. However, a specific financial practice called technical analysis mainly uses visual patterns in order to take a position on the market. Through financial graphs, tables, charts, etc, technical analysts give a meaning to the evolution of financial prices. All these visual metaphors imply a real interpretative process in which analysts form 'feelings' and judgements concerning 'bad shapes' or 'good trends'. While technical analysis is usually associated with the recognition (...)

  25. Positivism in Finance and its Implication for the Diversification Finance Research: Diversifying Finance Research: From Financialization to Sustainability.C. Schinckus - 2015 - .
    This paper is a complementary comment to the article recently published in IRFA by Thomas Lagoarde-Segot on the necessity of diversification of modelling in finance. In his claim, the author explained that financial concepts used by the mainstream are not neutral because they refer to a particular ethical judgement mainly focused on the shareholders' interest. In this comment, I explain that this ethical judgement historically results from the role playing by the Gaussian distribution in finance: while this statistical framework gave (...)

I note some of the seminal texts in the genre of popular philosophy in recent years - particularly the work of A.C. Grayling and Alain de Botton - and demonstrate how these celebrated works fail to embody feminist principles. I then posit three recent works as possible exhibits of feminist popular philosophy: Sarah Bakewell's biography of Montaigne titled How to Live, Laura (...)

    Technology is fundamental to and embedded in the way practice is conceptualized and institutionalized in social service work. Many scholars assume and expect that good practices of care are achieved with the correct application of theory produced by rigorous scientific research. However, there are significant critiques of this viewpoint. We examine the work of Donald Schön and Martin Heidegger and agree with these authors' suggestions that technical rationality and modern technology are not the way to achieve good practice in the (...)

    This research investigates the intersubjective aspects of communication design practice through a focus on the other, and the roles that the other takes in practice. It does so in order to better understand the practice of communication design as practiced on a day-to-day basis. Communication design, as a practice, and a field, extends out of graphic design. This extension is due to a change in priorities; from privileging the graphic and artefactual aspects of practice, to prioritising the consideration of the (...)

    This paper is the first of two that seek to propose the establishment of a new singularity for the arts defined as a Post-neomodernism by examining the first five points of the ​Post Neomodernist Manifesto. As the micro movements of Post-postmodernism, Neomodernism, and Metamodernism have established their own positions in an after Postmodernist context, therein lies an absence of a greater contextualisation to which a Post-neomodernism can establish and by this, approach a singularity in more holistic terms.

This paper examines the current predicament that society faces from the end of cheap oil, why it hasn't been more widely debated, and why it is generally not considered as a cause for broad-scale concern. It is conjectured that dementia is a useful metaphor for reframing our thinking and understanding of peak oil. In particular, it helps illuminate why this major force, which is likely to shape (...)

These attempts were (...)

What is contentious is that in light of increasing intellectual work on the nature of social practices there is a failure in the human services literature to adequately examine the interdependencies and entanglements between conceptualisations of the stuff that the helping professions deals with and understandings of practice.

    Urban soundscape installations applying ecosophical approaches challenge homogeneity by creating diverse acoustic ecologies, where acoustic ecologies are understood as the subjective experiences of listeners immersed in variable sound environments. In environmental ecology homogeneity threatens diversity through the spread of destructive agents ; similarly, homogenising agents in urban soundscapes threaten the diversity of social ecologies and mental ecologies. This paper describes two public soundscape installations that challenge homogenisation by creating multiplicities of acoustic ecologies through transformations of everyday sounds for the diversification (...)

In this thesis I argue that the problems in question turn on the foundational role that Henri Bergson’s critique of the cinematographic illusion plays in the development of Deleuze’s ontological conception of difference – specifically in his 1956 essay “Bergson’s Conception of Difference.” The consequence of Bergson’s characterisation of human thought, perception and language as cinematographic (...)

While it is geometry which provides a particular depiction, it is the mathematical relationships which define the 'state space' - the range of morphological (...)

  44. Being Awake to Ma: Designing in Between-Ness as a Way of Becoming With.Y. Akama - 2015 - .
    Co-designing is an activity based on emergence where constituents are mutually changing towards purposeful outcomes. Here, I draw on the Japanese philosophy of Ma as 'between-ness' to explore how we are transforming and becoming together among this heterogeneity. Yet, if emergence of potentiality is hard to articulate, it is even harder to understand. As we design, we are embedded within and inscripted by conditions that we cannot quite touch or see visibly, yet manifests through its evolu- tion. Awakening to this (...)

  45. Boiling Lines and Lightning Sketches: Process and the Animated Drawing.D. Torre - 2015 - .
    Animation has often involved some degree of drawing, but 'boiling' and animated sketching are two unique forms of drawn animation that overtly foreground the process of drawing. In this article, the author looks at these two specific approaches to drawn animation, paying special attention to the history, process, and evolutionary qualities of animated sketching; he focuses on the processes and material essence of the 'boiling' image. Both of these approaches produce forms that are at once immobile and mobile and, within (...)

  48. Defining CSR: Problems and Solutions.Benedict Sheehy - 2015 - Journal of Business Ethics 131 (3):625-648.
    The ubiquity of the term CSR threatens its carrying any distinctive meaning. Despite its long history no consensus has been developed among the industry participants, academics or other interested parties. After a careful review of the complications and complexities of the CSR debate and distinct disciplinary definitions, the article turns to approach the problem of definition using the philosophy of science. It applies a scientific definitional approach of genus, differentia and species to arrive at a definition of CSR as international (...)

    The act of slowness is by its very nature an implied reduction of physical engagement that one might argue has as much to do with impairment as it does with temporal devaluation. Yet when placed in a twenty-first century context there are a growing number of arguments that position slowness as a mediator of resistance to fast-paced communication transactions thus impacting on the ways in which human interaction coexists between digital technology and cultural immediacy. While it may be suggestive to (...)

  50. Why Moral Philosophy Cannot Explain Oskar Schindler but Keneally's Novel Can.M. Schwartz & D. Comer - unknown
    Neither moral philosophy nor history provides a satisfactory explanation for Oskar Schindler's extraordinary rescue of more than 1,200 Jews during the Holocaust. Thomas Keneally's Schindler's Ark does. Although Schindler's Ark is technically a work of fiction, that generic label obscures its contribution as a fictionalised account of true events. By using a novelist's tools to tell an historical story, Keneally allows us to make inferences as to the motives of his protagonist and thereby helps us to understand what propelled the (...)

    Ethics deals with moral behavior in a professional context; ideally, it leads to a set of governing principles through which the appropriateness of any activity may be determined or assessed. Environmental ethics specifically deals with how humans interact with the biosphere. It is clear, however, that, as a species, we are failing in our duty of environmental stewardship. The encroachment of human activity into the natural environment is inexorable, and almost always deleterious. Any response to mitigate loss of taxa or (...)

This study investigated the value of using the concept of telos as an analytical tool to orient youth work towards the right ends. Relevant literature was systematically reviewed. The value of telos in understanding youth work was examined. Common aims of youth work were described. The merits of different goals were assessed to figure out which, if any, is youth (...)

    This paper takes the position of plurality and 'betweenness' in designing, to sharpen our perception for things that emerge in-between that cannot be grasped and thus, falls outside of consciousness. Attuning to this presence is important because designing is an exploration and articulation of concerns and understanding among people, and specifically in PD, involved in mediating sociomaterial relations. In order to articulate this 'between-ness', the paper borrows the notion of Ma in Japanese philosophy to attune into a way of sensing (...)

    The globalisation of engineering education and the mobility of today's graduates have led to a need to correlate engineering qualifications in different educational systems. Some effective benchmarking is achieved at annual engineering educators' conferences, which provide invaluable for the sharing of pedagogic methodologies and ideas. This sharing may result in fine (or coarse) tuning of existing degree programmes and, where necessary, bring them in line with successful overseas programmes. However, in most situations, there are few opportunities to demonstrate the success (...)
