    Between Logos and Doxa: The Intelligence of a Machine.German A. Duarte - 2016 - Human and Social Studies 5 (1):113-134.
    This paper deals with Parmenides of Elea’s way of inquiry about reality and the opposition emerging from it. In more detail, it analyses how Parmenides’ concepts of logos and doxa present some analogies with Bergson’s thoughts about duration and Time and how these theories influenced the understanding of visual media, especially the cinematographic camera.
