  1. Wikies and Rethinking Author-Ity.George Teschner - 2011 - Philosophy in the Contemporary World 18 (1):11-18.
    The Wiki represents a legitimate form of literature that requires a deep rethinking of how texts are produced and consumed. In order to understand and evaluate the Wiki, Barthes' distinction between Text and Work, and the critique of authorship found in the writings of both Barthes and Foucault are employed. The Wiki is a genre of literature, which like Barthes' concept of the Text, is without identifiable authorship, and its production is directly related to semantic conventions governing the text as (...)

    Technological Paradigm in Ancient Taoism.George Teschner & Alessandro Tomasi - 2009 - Techné: Research in Philosophy and Technology 13 (3):190-205.
    Heidegger, Winner, and Ellul's critiques of Western technology focus on a notion of efficiency that subordinates to itself all non-instrumental values. An alternative conception of efficiency is proposed based on the Taoist theory of non-action. The ancient Taoist text, The Chuang Tzu, reveals a type of efficiency that is effective, resourceful, and entrepreneurial. It is a form of action which has an intimate rather than alienated relation to technology, and which is sensitive to the ethical and aesthetic values that Heidegger (...)

    The Humanities and Telecommunication Technology.George Teschner - 2001 - The Proceedings of the Twentieth World Congress of Philosophy 2001:247-257.
    Contemporary technology in the form of electronically managed interactive telecommunications is compatible with the goals and values of the humanities. Computerized communication (especially that of bulletin board technology) inverts the relationship between the degree of communicative interaction and the number of communicants. It is both mass communication and individualized participation. From the point of view of a theory of discourse, the bulletin board system is unique in that the ratio between the number of participants and the individualized nature of the (...)

    The Relation Between Mind and Body in the Surangama Sutra.George Teschner - 1981 - Journal of Indian Philosophy 9 (1):77-83.
    The article examines the polemic in the surangama sutra against the possibility of establishing any spacial relation between consciousness, the sense organs, and the external world. the arguments lead to the negative conclusion that consciousness cannot be said to have spacial location without contradicting experience. the article then takes this argument and applies it to the physiology of vision showing that visual perception cannot, in principle, be located neurologically.

    Terrorism, Singularity, and the Phenomenology of Understanding.George Teschner - 2008 - Philosophy in the Contemporary World 15 (1):32-43.
    This paper discusses international terrorism and the diagnosis of terrorism that is found in Baudrillard, Habermas, and Derrida. The paper suggests a way of responding to terrorism based upon Gadanler’s understanding of Bildung. Terrorism is analyzed as arising out of an encounter between singularities that are experienced as otherness and alterity. Gadamer’s distinction between the humanities and the natural and social sciences reveals two fundamentally different epistemological orientations. Philosophical understanding is essentially hermeneutic and treats the phenomenon of terrorism symbolicaIly, in (...)

  9. The Humanities and Telecommunication.George Teschner - 1998 - The Paideia Archive: Twentieth World Congress of Philosophy 39:54-60.
    Contemporary technology in the form of electronically managed interactive telecommunications is compatible with the goals and values of the humanities. For Marx, machine-work tended toward being mechanically routine, repetitive, deskilled, and trivialized. In the case of discourse, the same criticism has been made of computerized communication. Immediacy is not authorial presence, but the experience of textuality that is maximized by participation in interactive communication. Bulletin board technology inverts the relationship between the degree of communicative interaction and the number of communicants. (...)
