“I met a girl at the British Museum once,” a fellow said to me at a party last weekend.

“Her name was Rosetta. Rosetta Stone.” A groaner indeed, but also a reminder of how far we’ve come: whereas you once really would have had to go all the way to the British Museum (in London) to run into good old Rosetta, now you can get acquainted with her, and 4,633 of the other fascinating artifacts of human civilization held there, without even stepping away from your computer. The British Museum charges nothing for admission, of course, but now the internet has freed it in the geographical sense as well.

“The British Museum recently unveiled the results of its partnership with the Google Cultural Institute (GCI),” writes National Geographic‘s Kristin Romney, “the world’s largest Google Street View of an interior space, covering nine floors and 85 permanent galleries of the museum.” After you’ve enjoyed this Street View stroll, you’ll surely want to examine some of these items in greater depth. The British Museum Is Now Open To Everyone: Take a Virtual Tour and See 4,737 Artifacts, Including the Rosetta Stone.

The legacy of Islamic philosophy. This article is a preview from the Winter 2016 edition of New Humanist.

The legacy of Islamic philosophy

You can find out more and subscribe here. What can humanists or other non-believers find to interest them in Islamic philosophy? The phrase suggests the problem. If a philosophical tradition is distinctively Islamic, it would seem the humanist can see only a target for critique. The humanist might go further and argue that “Islamic philosophy” is a contradiction in terms. Plausible though this line of thought is, I want to persuade you that it is wrong. Yet there does seem to be something to the idea that philosophy should distance itself from religious assumptions. Mi amigo Nietzche de TruequeyAutosuficiencia on Vimeo. A Unified Theory of Mental Illness: How Everything from Addiction to Depression Can Be Explained by the Concept of "Capture"

David Kessler–once the Commissioner of the F.D.A., later the Dean of Yale’s School of Medicine, and eventually Dean and Vice-Chancellor at UCSF’s prestigious Medical School–published a book called Capture: Unraveling the Mystery of Mental Suffering.

A Unified Theory of Mental Illness: How Everything from Addiction to Depression Can Be Explained by the Concept of "Capture"

A bestseller, the book makes the case that all mental illness–everything from addiction to depression to artistic obsessions–can be explained by an underlying mechanism. That mechanism, the key to treating mental illness, is known as “Capture.” To get a brief introduction to Kessler’s unified theory of mental illness, watch the animated primer above.

Philographics Presents a Visual Dictionary of Philosophy: 95 Philosophical Concepts as Graphic Designs. We so often hear pictures described as worth a thousand words apiece, but the Philographics project seems to have found a way to increase that value by at least 27,218.

Or it has if you believe its blurb from Co.Design: “It takes the Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy 28,250 words to explain the woolly concept of relativism. It takes Genis Carreras 32 words and a single image.” When the Girona, Spain-based graphic designer harnessed his professional background in graphic design to his interest in philosophy, something hitherto unseen resulted: a visual dictionary of philosophy. “I started the project two years ago with the intention to merge the world of philosophy and graphic design,” writes Carreras on the page of the Philographics Kickstarter drive, which raised £65,217 in 2013.

An Art Historical Guide to Napping. However much human beings have adapted over time, one thing will never change – we will always need sleep.

An Art Historical Guide to Napping

As an essential part of life, it is only right that sleep creeps into art. In 2004, a video of David Beckham sleeping was displayed at the National Portrait Gallery in London. La rebelión de los maniquíes. Crónica de un viaje redondo por los trópicos de la historia moderna de América Latina, La rebelión de los maniquíes propone ante todo una retrospectiva de la vida contemporánea en México, regresando al calor y al color de los hechos, las batallas políticas de los mexicanos a lo largo de la última década contra el caciquismo, la miseria, la enfermedad y el destierro interior en el campo, contra los fantasmas propios y ajenos de la modernidad en las ciudades: la represión, la tortura, la libertad de prensa, el fin de la guerrilla urbana, las catástrofes naturales, el ascenso electoral de la oposición, las rupturas dentro del partido del gobierno, el fraude en las urnas.

Así, las páginas de este libro constatan que el periodismo puede ser uno más entre los géneros literarios de nuestro tiempo y que la reiteración de la memoria colectiva es también la negación de los recuerdos personales, como podrá el lector comprobar cuando llegue, por segunda vez, a Yunuen. Download 144 Beautiful Books of Russian Futurism: Mayakovsky, Malevich, Khlebnikov & More (1910-30) In the years after World War II, the CIA made use of jazz musicians, abstract expressionist painters, and experimental writers to promote avant-garde American culture as a Cold War weapon.

At the time, downward cultural comparisons with Soviet art were highly credible. Many years of repressive Stalinism and what Isaiah Berlin called “the new orthodoxy” had reduced so much Russian art and literature to didactic, homogenized social realism. But in the years following the first World War and the Russian Revolution, it would not have been possible to accuse the Soviets of cultural backwardness.

The first three decades of the twentieth century produced some of the most innovative art, film, dance, drama, and poetry in Russian history, much of it under the banner of Futurism, the movement begun in Italy in 1909 by F.T.

Between Marx, Marxism, and Marxisms – Ways of Reading Marx’s Theory. The objec­tive of the fol­low­ing obser­va­tions is to offer a rough overview of cen­tral ways of read­ing Marx’s the­ory.

Between Marx, Marxism, and Marxisms – Ways of Reading Marx’s Theory

These are to be pre­sented – by means of a few selected top­ics – as Marxisms that can be rel­a­tively clearly delim­ited from one another, and the his­tory of their recep­tion and influ­ence will be eval­u­ated with regard to the com­mon-sense under­stand­ing of “Marx­ist the­ory.” A dis­tinc­tion will be made between the hith­erto pre­dom­i­nant inter­pre­ta­tion of Marx, pri­mar­ily asso­ci­ated with polit­i­cal par­ties (tra­di­tional Marx­ism, Marx­ism in the sin­gu­lar, if you will), and the dis­si­dent, crit­i­cal forms of recep­tion of Marx (Marxisms in the plu­ral), with their respec­tive claims of a “return to Marx.” In order to char­ac­ter­ize both ways of read­ing, some strongly trun­cated the­ses, lim­ited to a few aspects, must suf­fice.

Los aztecas o mexicas eran la civilización dominante en Mesoamérica al momento del primer contacto europeo registrado.

Nuestros ancestros hablaban una variante del náhuatl, conocida como el “náhuatl clásico”, la cual es proveniente del tronco lingüístico yutonahua. La gran influencia del náhuatl sobre la lengua invasora se manifestó en el léxico, principalmente en los sustantivos que designaban la flora y la fauna propias del país y en otros referentes a comida, bebida, enseres o utensilios domésticos (Lope Blanch, 1969: 20).
