- Time and Narrative in Descartes’s Meditations.Michael Campbell - 2017 - Dissertation, University of CanberraDescartes’s Meditations on First Philosophy, regarded by many as his masterpiece, has been the subject of significant philosophical debate since its publication in 1641. Yet the Meditations is remarkable not only for its philosophical ideas but also for the style in which it was written. Two of the most notable stylistic elements of the Meditations are the use of temporal markers—a significant departure from analogous philosophical treatises of the same period—and the fact that the text is written in such a (...)

- Some Socio-Legal and Legal Philosophical Implications of Limited Universal Holism with Special Considerations of Modern Human Rights.Amar Dhall - unknownThis thesis considers the space of encounter between the quantum mechanical ontology of limited universal holism and the legal system. This space of encounter is identified through an examination of two premises. The first premise is that the ontological structure of limited universal holism has significant legal philosophical and socio-‐legal implications. The second premise is that the loci of commitment within the ontology of limited universal holism epistemologically coheres with the core ontological notions that underpin the Preamble of the Universal (...)No categories

- Sensing a Remote Coastal Landscape : How an Aboriginal Culture Camp Experience Informed Conceptual Design Thinking of Public Spaces in Australia.Scott Heyes & Andrew Saniga - unknownThis paper presents how a 2015 public space design competition, made available to students of landscape architecture in Australia and New Zealand, provided an opportunity for investigations to be carried out into the experiences, values, and the importance of hangout places in public settings. Following successful and enriching partnerships with Indigenous communities as part of previous design studio teaching and research activities we developed a brief for our current landscape architecture students from the University of Canberra and the University of (...)
- Time, Causality and Character in Descartes' Meditations.Michael Campbell - 2015 - Parrhesia: A Journal of Critical Philosophy 24:107-126.This article explores Descartes's philosophy of time as articulated in the 'non-endurance doctrine' in the Third Meditation. I argue that what has been overlooked in prior readings of this doctrine is acknowledgement that it is articulated by a fictional character within a fictional span of time. The text, therefore, expresses a temporal reality, as well as articulating a temporal theory. I explore the temporality of the text, and the fictionality of the narrator, through the lens of Monika Fludernik's theory of (...)
- Towards Sustainable Equity in Mental Health Services for LGBT People : A Rhizomatic Contribution From Nurses Constituted at N - 1.Patricia Jean Kench - unknownFor decades, people who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual and/or transgender have expressed dissatisfactions with the mental health services provided to us. Previous researchers, the majority working within the disciplines of psychiatry, medicine and psychology, have used representational models of thought and conventional research methods to produce interpretations of how stigmatisation and discrimination towards those who are different ‘from-the-same’ normative sociocultural standards also affect LGBT people within mental health services. Research recommendations and problem-solving practice guidelines developed on the basis of (...)

- Towards an Archaelology of 'Know-How'.Glen Fuller - 2013 - Cultural Studies Review 19 (1).This article explores the relation between experience and ‘know-how’ as a ‘tacit’ form of knowledge and the role of enthusiasm in the production of ‘know-how’, and engages with the problem of the transmission of ‘know how’. Why is the transmission of ‘know-how’ a problem? If ‘know-how’ is a tacit form of knowledge, then there are difficulties imagining how it is transmitted through the media without becoming an ‘explicit’ form of knowledge.The author turns his attention to the humble ‘how to’ article, (...)No categories

- Music in Australian Education : A Historical and Philosophical Analysis.Gillian Bonham - unknownThis Field Study Report represents a preliminary inquiry or prolegomenon to a Philosophy of Music Education in Australia. My concern here is with the nature and function of music in Australian education, especially of young people. I am not concerned with the technical details of education and training in the musical art itself: my aim is rather to distinguish and account for public and professional attitudes towards music in Australian education, by identifying their philosophical sources and social determinants. The Introduction (...)
- The Co-Op School : The Co-Operative School, ACT, 1978-1980, Curriculum Options Compatible with Alternative, Early Childhood Education. [REVIEW]Coleen Enright - unknownThis field study was based on experiences as a teacher and parent in an alternative, progressive early childhood school: The Co-Operative School, O'Connor, ACT. The data for the study was recorded during 1978, 1979, 1980; the first three years of the school's existence as a Government school. The development and educational progress of fourteen girls and boys, aged from five to eight years in 1978, was followed. The philosophy, policies , organization, curriculum content, teaching strategies and general milieu of the (...)
- Images of Technology in Organisation and Society Contexts.Robert Leivesley - unknownAn original project for a taxonomy of organisation-technology became over time an exploration of some of the meanings and contexts of technology. The exploration began with the critique of selected instances of landmark theorising and empirical research on the technology concept. The critique raised issues in epistemology and methodology which caused this writer to address the philosophy of the social sciences and the philosophy of technology at certain points: the question of technological determinism; language and metaphor; ideology; construct validity. Chapters (...)No categories
- Moral Education: A Critique of Stage Development Theory and the Philosophy for Children Programme as a Moral Education Alternative.Rob Taylor - unknownThis thesis considers aspects of Piaget's and Kohlberg's theories of the moral development and education of children. It takes into consideration an old but valuable study of the development of character in children. As a possible alternative model to that provided by Kohlberg we suggest the inclusion of the Philosophy for Children programme into schools. Prior to the elaboration of this proposition we critically analyse certain philosophical concepts put forward by both Piaget and Kohlberg. Our aim here has been to (...)

Written for readers interested in public affairs and current events, as well as those grappling with ʻbig pictureʼ issues in law and government as students, professionals or concerned citizens, this book serves as an introduction, a critique, and a thought-provoking read all in one. Vividly illustrated with Australian and international examples, it tells lawʼs stories, exposes lawʼs myths, and delves into major law-and-justice questions which affect us all. Some (...)

- Creating Histories and Spaces of Meaningful Use : Toward a Framework of Foreign Language Teaching with an Emphasis on Culture, Epistemology and Ethical Pedagogy.Harald Andreas Kraus - unknownThis thesis arises out of a critique of the way language is decontextualized and presented from a reductively linguistic viewpoint in foreign language instruction. In particular, it focuses on the weaknesses of the broad approach known as Communicative Language Teaching (CLT) and highlights the disparity between its theoretical assumptions and practical applications. With this in mind, the thesis identifies and explores three foundational premises that should be considered as part of an attempt to design a theoretically coherent framework for foreign (...)
- A Theory of Legislation From a Systems Perspective.Peter Harrison - unknownIn this thesis I outline a view of primary legislation from a systems perspective. I suggest that systems theory and, in particular, autopoietic theory, as modified by field theory, is a mechanism for understanding how society operates. The description of primary legislation that I outline differs markedly from any conventional definition in that I argue that primary legislation is not, and indeed cannot be, either a law or any of the euphemisms that are usually accorded to an enactment by a (...)
- Design and the Conversational Self.Kaye Shumack - unknownThis thesis sets out a theoretical premise for design research into the space of the designer, working inside the design system or context. The designer is understood as actor, as active agency looking inwards in a comprehensive way to examine where ideas are located and then, how these new insights or perspective might be meaningfully introduced. In order to develop this research, personal journal writing is employed as to develop an understanding about how the designer/actor can actively engage with being (...)
