Bombing Science: Graffiti Forums. “El concepto de campo expandido” Descartes was wrong: ‘a person is a person through other persons’ According to Ubuntu philosophy, which has its origins in ancient Africa, a newborn baby is not a person.

Descartes was wrong: ‘a person is a person through other persons’

People are born without ‘ena’, or selfhood, and instead must acquire it through interactions and experiences over time. So the ‘self’/‘other’ distinction that’s axiomatic in Western philosophy is much blurrier in Ubuntu thought.

Listen To The Epic Of Gilgamesh Melodiously Sung In Ancient Sumerian

Well this time around we are witness to yet another Mesopotamian cultural achievement in the form of Epic of Gilgamesh – possibly the oldest known epic in the world and also the earliest surviving great work of literature. Now the literary history of the titular character Gilgamesh comes down to us from five Sumerian poems, though the first iterations of the epic itself were possibly compiled in ‘Old Babylonian’ versions (circa 18th century BC).

La mano del autor y el espíritu del impresor: Siglos XVI-XVIII - Roger Chartier. En la temprana modernidad europea, los primeros lectores de un libro no eran quienes lo compraban: era los escribas que copiaban el manuscrito del autor o del traductor, los censores que lo autorizaban, el editor que decidía poner ese título en su catálogo, los revisores que preparaban el texto para la imprenta, lo dividían en capítulos o secciones y le añadían la puntuación, los cajistas que componían las páginas, los lectores de pruebas que lo corregían. La mano del autor no podía ser separada del espíritu del impresor. Este libro está dedicado al proceso de publicación de las obras que dan el marco a las representaciones que los lectores se hacen del pasado o del mundo.

Carnet du projet ORIFLAMMS (Ontology Research, Image Features, Letterform Analysis on Multilingual Medieval Scripts) As part of ICFHR 2016 ( we propose a competition on Script Classification. 1.1 Task under evaluation The task to be evaluated in the present competition is the classification of 1000 images of Latin Scripts, from handwritten books dated 500 C.E. to 1600 C.E. The organizers provide a training data-set consisting in 2000 images of well defined script types.

They will evaluate the results on a 1000 additional images which are not included in the training data-set, or/and on a set of 2000 images of mixed script type images. The complete data-set is thereafter named CLaMM : classification of Latin Medieval Manuscripts There are 12 pre-defined classes in CLaMM according to the script style.

And, for centuries, it remained the lingua franca in the Ancient Near East. But then it was gradually squeezed out by Aramaic, and it faded into oblivion once Alexander the Great Hellenized (Greekified) the region. Now, 2,000+ years later, Akkadian is making a small comeback.
