Can the internet solve the problem of mass education, and bring human beings to a new level of community? Drawing on a diverse array of thinkers from Plato to Kierkegaard, On the Internetargues that there is much in common between the disembodied, free floating web and Descartes' separation of mind and body. Hubert Dreyfus also shows how Kierkegaard's insights into the origins of a media-obsessed public anticipate the web surfer, blogger and chat room. Drawing on studies of the isolation experienced by many internet users and the insights of philosopher such as Descartes and Kierkegaard, Dreyfus shows how the internet's privatisation of experience ignores essential human capacities such as trust, moods, risk, shared local concerns and commitment. The second edition includes a brand new chapter on 'Second Life' and is revised and updated throughout.

An dieser Stelle sei all jenen gedankt, die zur Entstehung dieser Arbeit bei- tragen haben. Mein besonderer Dank gilt Frau Prof. Dr. Ingeborg Weber für das mir ent- gengebrachte Vertrauen und ihre stetige Diskussionsbereitschaft, die mich sowohl fachlich als auch persönlich bereicherte. Sehr geschätzt habe ich die von ihr gewährte Freiheit, im Rahmen der Promotion auch eigene Wege gehen zu dürfen. Ihr Engagement und das Fachwissen, das ich insbesondere in ihren Seminaren zum Werke von William Shakespeare an der Ruhr-Universität Bochum erwarb, haben diese Arbeit erst ermöglicht. Aufrichtig danken möchte ich Herrn Prof. Dr. Manfred Beyer für die Bere- schaft, das Zweitgutachten meiner Dissertation zu erstellen. In seinem Seminar zu zeitgenössischen Adaptationen Shakespeares im Sommersemester 2007 erhielt ich zahlreiche wertvolle Anregungen für die Interpretation der Texte von Tom Stoppard. Den Begegnungen und Gesprächen mit meinem ehemaligen Englischlehrer Herrn Studiendirektor Wolfgang Werner verdankt die Arbeit ihren ersten E- stehungsimpuls. Durch ihn entdeckte ich meine Liebe zur englischen Sprache und Literatur. Mein größter Dank gilt jedoch meinen Eltern, ohne deren Geduld und Beistand die Arbeit nicht fertig gestellt worden wäre und meiner Schwester Indra Wiencek für das gewissenhafte und zeitintensive Korrekturlesen.

Drawing on a diverse array of thinkers from Plato to Kierkegaard, On the Internet is one of the first books to bring philosophical insight to the debate on how far the internet can and cannot take us. Dreyfus shows us the roots of the disembodied, free floating web surfer in Descartes' separation of mind and body, and how Kierkegaard's insights into the birth of the modern reading public anticipate the news-hungry, but disinterested risk avoiding internet junkie. Drawing on recent studies of the isolation experienced by many internet users, Dreyfus shows how the internet's privatisation of experience ignores essential human capacities such as trust, moods, risk, shared local concerns and commitment. On the Internet is essential reading for anyone on line and all those interested in our place in the e-revolution.

Wie oft werden wir im Alltag aufgefordert, optimistisch zu sein und positiv zu denken. Es komme nur darauf an, unsere Ziele mit höchster Konzentration anzugehen, dann würden sich die Ergebnisse wie von selbst einstellen. Die Psychologin Gabriele Oettingen weist nach, dass diese Gleichung nicht aufgeht. Ihr Konzept präsentiert einen überraschend neuen Ansatz der Selbstmotivation, dessen Wirksamkeit in zahllosen Untersuchungen bestätigt wurde: Sobald die Menschen nicht nur positiv denken, sondern auch Hindernisse in ihren Planungen berücksichtigen, gelingt es ihnen besser, ihre individuellen Ziele zu erreichen.

My First Recession starts after the party is over. This study maps the transition of critical Internet culture from the mid to late 1990s Internet craze to the dotcom crash, the subsequent meltdown of global financial markets and 9/11. In his discussion of the dotcom boom-and-bust cycle, Geert Lovink lays out the challenges faced by critical Internet culture today. In a series of case studies, Lovink meticulously describes the ambivalent attitude that artists and activists take as they veer back and forth between euphoria and skepticism. As a part of this process, Lovink examines the internal dynamics of virtual communities through an analysis of the use of moderation and "collaborative filtering" on mailing lists and weblogs. He also confronts the practical and theoretical problems that appear as artists join the growing number of new-media education programs. Delving into the unexplored gold mines of list archives and weblogs, Lovink reveals a world that is largely unknown to both the general public and the Internet visionaries. Book jacket.

"The meaning of life is the most urgent of questions," said the existentiallist thinker Albert Camus. And no less a philosopher than Woody Allen has wondered:"How is it possible to find meaning in a finite world, given my waist and shirt size?" "Movies and the Meaning of Life" looks at popular and cult movies, examining their assumptions and insights on meaning-of-life questions: What is reality and how can I know it? (The Truman Show, Contact, Waking Life); How do I find myself and my true identity? (Fight Club, Being John Malkovich, Boys Don't Cry, Memento); How do I find meaning from my interactions with others? (Pulp Fiction, Shadowlands, Chasing Amy); What is the chief purpose in life? (American Beauty, Life is Beautiful, The Shawshank Redemption); and How ought I live my life? (Pleasantville, Spiderman, Minority Report, Groundhog Day).

A Critical Overview from Citizen Kane to The Sopranos

Author: Kevin L. Stoehr

Publisher: McFarland

ISBN: 1476611335

Category: Performing Arts

Page: 226

This book explores the idea of nihilism, emphasized by German philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche, through its appearance in modern popular culture. The author defines and reflects upon nihilism, then explores its manifestation in films and television shows. Among the subjects examined are the award-winning television series The Sopranos and the film noir genre that preceded and influenced it. Films probed include Orson Welles’s masterpiece Citizen Kane, the films of Stanley Kubrick, Neil Jordan’s controversial The Crying Game and Richard Linklater’s unconventional Waking Life. Finally, the author considers nihilism in terms of the decay of traditional values in the genre of westerns, mostly through works of filmmaker John Ford. In the concluding chapter the author broadens the lessons gleaned from these studies, maintaining that the situated and embodied nature of human life must be understood and appreciated before people can overcome the life-negating effects of nihilism.

The emergence of the system of open and distance education is an inevitable and phenomenal evolution in the history of education developments internationally. Access & Equity: Challenges for Open and Distance Learning crystallizes the emerging concerns of the open and distance learning institutions the world over. In the past few decades, a proliferation in the number of ODL institutions and courses/programmes offerings has resulted in exponential growth in student enrollment in the system. The system is poised for further expansion in the coming years as its virtually unlimited potential to impart education to anybody, anywhere and anytime is being recognised by educationists, policy makers and planners. There is however a large body of learners that has yet to be reached and providing access to them while ensuring equity poses definite challenges for the ODL system. The ODL system has the capacity to integrate the state-of-the-art technologies with the time-tested methodologies

Enhancing Intellectual Growth and Functioning

The key question this book addresses is how to identify and create optimal conditions for the kind of learning and development that is especially important for effectively functioning in the 21st century. Taking a new approach to this long-debated issue, it looks at how a design research-based science of learning (with its practical models and related design research) can provide insights and integrated models of how human beings actually function and grow in the social dynamics of educational settings with all their affordances and constraints. More specifically: How can specific domains or subject matters be taught for broad intellectual development? How can technology be integrated in enhancing human functioning? How can the social organization of classroom learning be optimized to create social norms for promoting deep intellectual engagement and personal growth? Part I is concerned with broad conceptual and technical issues regarding cultivating intellectual potential, with a focus on how design research might fill in an important a niche in addressing these issues. Part II presents specific design work in terms of design principles, models, and prototypes.

Ancient Egyptian Justice and Ancient Roman Law Applied to the Internet

As cyberspace and real space function differently, they cannot implicate the same legal values. The most elementary wisdom invites us to forget our legal past, so obviously ill-adapted to the Internet, so as to gain a better insight into the functioning of virtual space. Attempts to regulate the Internet in the same way as the real world have inevitably failed and will continue to fail. The only solution that can foster the expansion of the net and justify state intervention will come from a philosophy of law suited to virtuality. Our philosophical legal traditions stemmed from agricultural and industrial roots and are therefore widely useless within the virtual context. They cannot help us- but the philosophy of ancient civilizations can. At first sight, it may seem paradoxical to look to ancient civilizations for counsels on legal regulation of the Internet. But the virtual world is not a modern invention, it has existed forever. Ancient Egyptian Wisdom for the Internet demonstrates that the legal philosophy and knowledge of ancient civilizations are of great value in helping us deal with the Internet. Through a challenging exploration of ancient legal knowledge this book offers new perspective on how to deal with, and best profit from the Internet.
