  1. Some Basic Aspects of Knowledge.K. Abhary, H. K. Adriansen, F. Begovac, D. Djukic, B. Qin, S. Spuzic, Denise Wood & K. Xing - 2009 - Procedia - Social and Behavioral Sciences 1 (1):1753-1758.
    Knowledge processing is one of the most significant factors contributing to socioeconomic sustainability. It is therefore important to analyse hindrances that slow or even prevent the growth, communication and use of knowledge. This treatise hypothesises that the differences in interpretations of some basic epistemological, ontological and didactic concepts significantly contribute to the ambiguities and other impediments in knowledge processing. Examples of such misconceptions are presented and a mitigation strategy discussed. Interaction between computerised media and humans such as the rise of (...)

  2. The Cinema of Entanglement: How Not to Contemplate Terrence Malick’s To the Wonder, Voyage of Time, and Knight of Cups.Gabriella Blasi - 2019 - New Review of Film and Television Studies 17 (1):20-37.
    Terrence Malick’s To the Wonder, Knight of Cups, and Voyage of Time: Life’s Journey share a consistent use of theological and metaphysical references in voice-over narration. This paper frames the markedly spiritual and religious connotations of these 2010s films as an expression of a persistent teleological vision of time and history in contemporary settings. It argues that such vision is highly complicated and subverted by the films’ innovative formal and aesthetic elements. The analysis foregrounds the relevance of current scientific and (...)

  3. “That’s the Body:” the Limits of the Objectification of Women and Nature in Michelangelo Antonioni’s Blow Up.Gabriella Blasi - unknown
    This paper focuses on the work of the Italian director Michelangelo Antonioni to articulate a non-empirical, film-philosophical vision that presents important and unexplored potential in contemporary eco-feminist approaches to culture and nature. Taking Blow Up as a case study, this paper maintains that the film operates as a precise statement against the philosophical underpinnings of the capitalist-patriarchal ideology it depicts in its narrative and formal elements. The film uses and frustrates familiar rhetorical frameworks of Humanism and classical Hollywood cinema, such (...)

  4. Right Effort for Right Livelihood: Historical Model of Sustainable Development From Sri Lanka.C. de Alwis - 2018 - In K. Prasad (ed.), Communication, Culture and Ecology. Communication, Culture and Change in Asia, vol 6. Singapore: Springer.
    The focus of this chapter is to demonstrate that human wants and desires that direct the flow of development trends today are also directly entangled in creating an unsustainable development trajectory. It is important to consider the key concept of “dependent co-origination” drawn from the Buddha’s discourses, as an essential component in the sphere of sustainable development. This chapter illustrates how ancient Sri Lanka sustained development by creating awareness of dependent co-origination by adhering to a middle path consisting of right (...)

  5. Introduction.Shannon Brincat, Laura Lima & Joao Nunes - unknown
    The idea for this volume came out of a desire to assess the trajectory of critical thinking in the study of world politics. We saw critical theory as having reached an impasse, after the highly successful period in which its popularity surged – almost to the point of becoming ‘mainstream’ or common sense in some parts of the academic world. We the editors are part of a generation of researchers for whom the word ‘critical’ has become, to a great extent, (...)

  6. Reclaiming the Utopian Imaginary in IR Theory.Shannon Brincat - 2009 - Review of International Studies 35 (3):581-609.
    This article aims to reinvigorate the utopian imagination as a vital and necessary component in IR theory. Since the First Great Debate between the Realists and the Utopianists the utopian tradition has been viewed as being both subjective and arbitrary, leading to its dismissal as vain idealism in world politics. This article re-interrogates the arguments of Carr and Morgenthau and finds that they have relevance today only as against closed systems of utopia and have little bearing against the open-dialectical utopianism (...)

  7. “Plugging in” Epistemology: A Theoretical and Methodological Manoeuvre in Qualitative Research.Genine Hook - 2015 - The Qualitative Report 20 (7):982-995.
    In this paper I aim to illustrate how an epistemological three-way manoeuvre I propose may work in qualitative academic research. Epistemology is critical to my research because I live the topic that I research and in this paper I chart a three-way manoeuvre between and through an articulation of my researcher self, theoretical framing and the intent of the research project. This paper is my response to Jackson and Mazzei’s work “Plugging One Text into Another: Thinking with Theory in Qualitative (...)

  8. Afterword: Towards a Rationality of Mystery: The Calling of Robust Ignorance.M. P. Bussey & Sannum Miriam - unknown
    In a world becoming increasingly sensitive to the failings of narrow empiricism this book offers insights into creative and meaningful approaches to research. It explores ontological epistemology of participation as a new pathway of research as well as conceptualization of reality which goes beyond conventional methods such as participant observation and the familiar dualisms between qualitative and the quantitative and epistemology and ontology. Drawing on the editor's wide ranging network of creative scholars at work in the world of academia and (...)

    Can research contribute to the realization of reality as well as its potential? Can science and spirituality dance together to reveal the hidden and awaiting harmony in life, and manifest it in self, culture, society and the world? Research as Realization: Science, Spirituality and Harmony explores these neglected and repressed questions of modernity and presents trans-modern possibilities and neo-human futures based upon multiple traditions of humanity—European, Indian, Latin American, Islamic, and others. It encourages wholeness in this world of fragmentation and (...)

  10. Recalibrating the Gaze.J. C. McAllum Michael - 2017 - World Futures Review 9 (4).
    If symbolic language, collective learning, and the means by which we use technology are humanity’s “fundamental, non-genetic, adaptive capacity,” then how these are extended and modified in the next few decades will fundamentally define what it means to be human in the twenty-first century. The scale and scope of that determination is, in turn, dependent on how cognitive framings or “gazes,” shaped by shared conceptions of time, are constructed, for these gazes bound conversation, available knowledge, and the contextualizing of decisions.

    Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to offer an exemplar of post-qualitative “fieldwork in philosophy” research. The paper proposes features of such philosophical fieldwork and adumbrates examples of concepts that have emerged in the process of undertaking the research. Design/methodology/approach – The paper is conceptual, drawing on an abductive approach. Post-qualitative understandings that question the validity of methodology and theory as separable entities are operationalised.

  13. The Challenges of Eco-Leadership: Green Machiavellianism.D. Hanson & Middleton Stuart - 2000 - .
    This paper argues that leaders of organisations that are especially sensitive to the needs of the natural world require a unique and demanding set of skills and understandings. They need to be tolerant of diversity in people and ideas and at the same time coercive in a struggle to keep the organisation ‘on track’. Eco-Machiavellian leadership is therefore difficult and made more so by the requirement for a relatively sophisticated understanding of organisation theory.

  15. Distinguishing the Cognitive Processes of Mindfulness: Developing a Standardised Mindfulness Technique for Use in Longitudinal Randomised Control Trials.Isbel Benjamin & J. Summers Mathew - 2017 - Consciousness and Cognition 52:75-92.
    A capacity model of mindfulness is adopted to differentiate the cognitive faculty of mindfulness from the metacognitive processes required to cultivate this faculty in mindfulness training. The model provides an explanatory framework incorporating both the developmental progression from focussed attention to open monitoring styles of mindfulness practice, along with the development of equanimity and insight. A standardised technique for activating these processes without the addition of secondary components is then introduced. Mindfulness-based interventions currently available for use in randomised control trials (...)

    The world is becoming strange to itself! This strangeness is the result of 1, the surprise of becoming increasingly self-aware of our human embeddedness in the evolutionary unfolding of the Cosmos and 2, the terror that this new consciousness inspires in many today. Giri's reflections on roots and routes is an important step towards articulating the multiple and rhizomic nature of this strangeness. In the Hebrew story of Adam and Eve and their awakening, they are surprised to find themselves naked. (...)

Secondly method questions, which includes the nature of the evidence, the analytical processes used, and the representation of the research product. We seek to draw (...)

  25. Meeting the ‘Anthropocene’ in the Context of Intractability and Complexity: Infusing Resilience Narratives with Intersubjectivity.N. Powell, Rasmus Klocker Larsen & Severine van Brommel - 2014 - .
    Insufficient attention has been paid to how concepts of resilience can be operationalised in wicked, contested situations. Within the environmental sciences, the contemporary social-ecological resilience narrative is not geared to examining social dilemmas in ill-defined problem contexts. These conditions require a different resilience narrative, one centred on epistemological and ontological considerations. This paper examines four resilience narratives in order to stimulate an improved awareness of the possibility of more deliberative choices for research and governance in the resilience domain. We argue (...)

    This paper will examine the interrelationship between categorising the neo-liberal perspective and the term ‘consumer.’ My explicit concern is the likely intrusion of the neo-liberal mindset onto what is essentially the ‘social nature of identity’. By locating the discourse of consumerism within the broader political framework, I am able to examine the neoliberalist view and its positioning of marginalised groups with the aim of attempting to focus attention to the potentially negative consequences of the consumer label.

    Existing models of mindfulness describe the self-regulation of attention as primary, leading to enhanced decentering and ability to access and override automatic cognitive processes. This study compared 23 experienced and 21 non-meditators on tests of mindfulness, attention, decentering, and ability to override automatic cognitive processes to test the cognitive mechanisms proposed to underlie mindfulness practice. Experienced meditators had significantly higher mindfulness and decentering than non-meditators. No significant difference between groups was found on measures of attention or ability to override automatic (...)

Yet without knowledge, we have no base from which to imagine. My research argues that we ignore either one to our detriment; that both knowledge and imagination, science and art, have equal importance. Why is this significant? I propose our greatest wisdom, our greatest contribution to humanity, is gained through an effective combination of both. In addition, I (...)

In this regard, we examine the barriers faced by a ‘post-normal’ education for sustainable development inherent within the structures of a ‘normal’ University. (...)

This project is imperialist in nature and bases its power on its ability to define. So although IF claims to be inclusive it actually establishes a self-referential dialogical relationship between itself and its interlocutor that privileges its position. This is clearly counter to the integral rhetoric of its most ardent exponents. (...)

    The human dynamism implied by the concept of Thrival is of particular concern to futurists engaged in exploring our human potential. This potential is not simply a matter of being able to chart a course and realise it; it is the ability to engage the multidimensional facets of out humanness in order to create maps to preferable futures that retain their promise and their openness. Such futures resist definition, challenging us as both individuals and societies to be our best, do (...)

  49. Six Shamanic Concepts: Charting the Between in Futures Work.M. P. Bussey - unknown
    Purpose – This paper offers six shamanic futures concepts to augment Inayatullah's six pillars, questions and concepts of futures studies. Design/methodology/approach – Drawing on Ashis Nandy's use of the shaman as a futures category that posits alterity and the unknowable as the dissenting component of futures studies, six concepts from poststructural thinking are proposed to offer an account of the agency-structure interface that is of practical value to futures practice. Findings – Futures praxis is pragmatic and goal driven, seeking preferred (...)

  50. Shadow Dancing: Colonizing Racisms and Their Discontents.M. P. Bussey - unknown
    This paper offers a deep futures analysis of "race" and the many racisms that compete to colonize the future. Using poststructuralism it challenges the frames that shape our thinking on race and the "Other". Cultural narrative and boundary drawing are explored as sources of racist frames. Three distinct possible scenarios along with their defining myths and metaphors are also examined. The hidden economy of racism is also addressed as it underpins economic affluence and cultural hegemony. Finally, questions of integrity and (...)

    There are two Australias today. It is not easy to pinpoint when this all started but everyone saw the writing on the wall for the federal government when the water crisis of 2012 hit. This was an issue they had bungled from the beginning and if not for the energy and skill of local communities and indigenous-green groups the crisis could have been an absolute disaster. It was this issue that catalysed the awakening of local, communal, indigenous and green consciousness (...)

  57. Toward an Ideal Relational Ethic: Rethinking University-Community Engagement.S. Garlick & V. Palmer - unknown
    This paper explores how an ideal relational ethic based on Zygmunt Bauman’s (1995) notion of forms of togetherness is needed to underpin university-community engagement processes and practices. We focus on the notion of being-for, and suggest that it can be used as an ‘engagement bridge’ between higher education institutions, the creation of human capital and communities, and can be a means to achieve ethical outcomes to local concerns. Much of Bauman’s (1995; 2001; 2007) theoretical development has focussed on the liquidity (...)

  59. The Archetypal, Twenty First Century Resurrection of the Ancient Image of the Green Man.P. Araneo - unknown
    The Green Man is an artistic and iconic representation, part human, part plant. History is filled with Green Man images in architecture, stained glass, sculpture, painting, mythology, literature and folklore. It is a recurrent visual phenomenon in Western art practice, appearing and disappearing consistently across numerous time periods, cultures and geographic locations. Evidence shows that these emergences are often linked to times of upheaval, change or environmental crisis. Currently, the image is reappearing in a wide range of artistic and cultural (...)

  61. Beyond the Pendulum of the General and the Landlord-Politician: Understanding and Creating Alternative Futures for Pakistan.S. Inayatullah - unknown
    In this essay, I outline five futures for Pakistan: (1) the Pendulum continues forever, (2) Collapse, (3) joining Chindia, (4) the Great Game, and (5) a South Asian Confederation. The most familiar and likely are based on the pendulum of rule by the military and rule by landlord/politicians. However, what is needed is to move from the more likely and less desirable futures to a process of anticipatory democracy where the citizens of Pakistan consider, create and commit to building their (...)

  63. Timing Feminism, Feminising Time.I. Milojevic - unknown
    This article deals with feminist engagement with the futures studies (and vice versa) and analyses the uneasy relationship that exists between the two. More specifically, it investigates the feminist theorizing of ‘patriarchal time’ and efforts to both decolonise and ‘reconstruct’ time based on feminist epistemological frameworks. Feminism is here understood as a social movement, ideology, theory, philosophy, worldview and a way of life. As such this term overlaps with, yet represents a distinct category from terms such as ‘women’, ‘gender’, ‘femininity’ (...)

    This paper will be of interest to experienced and novice facilitators. It explores group facilitation and hermeneutic processes and presents a framework for the interpretation of behaviour in groups. The framework, which the authors have called the Group Interpretive Framework (GIF) is based on the concepts of the philosophers Martin Heidegger (1962) and Hans Georg Gadamer (1975). It aims to assist facilitators to develop skills in interpreting meaning in the group context. Such interpretation is necessary in order to understand group (...)

    Futures studies is the systematic study of possible, probable and preferable futures including the worldviews and myths that underlie each future. Futures studies has moved from external forces influencing the future–astrology and prophesy–to structure (historical patterns of change, of the rise and fall of nations and systems) and agency (the study and creation of preferred images of the future). Futures studies have been eagerly adopted by planning departments in organisations and nations. Yet there are clear differences between planning and futures (...)

A systematic literature review based on papers that mentioned ERPs was drawn from eight of the most highly ranked journals according to their h-index. The findings indicate that the majority of the ERP research papers were conducted within a positivist research paradigm, which is a far higher proportion than is suggested by other research (...)
