The Natural Theology of Beauty, Truth and Goodness, Steve McIntosh

To the Readers of IntegralWorld.net: I have enjoyed this website for many years, and it has been most interesting to follow its evolution.

Plato on Intelligent Design: Truth, Beauty, and the Good by W. T. S. Thackara

T. S. Thackara Perusing an internet forum on intelligent design some months ago brought me to an unusual post by David Alexander entitled "Is beauty just Darwin's bad dream? " Often it is argued . . . that Darwin's theory should be left to the biologists to be examined, that it is purely a matter of empirical, secondary knowledge that should be left to the experts.

Alexander raises an important question: does Darwin's theory reveal a fundamental conflict between the good and beautiful against the true? Against the utilitarian doctrine that every detail of structure has been produced for the good of its possessor. In other words, Darwin's theory excludes doctrines which assert that much of nature's beauty reflects metaphysical or divine intent. . . . First made me aware of just how much of the order of nature might be abstract afunctional patterns. . . . Howard Gardner: Truth, Beauty, and Goodness Reframed.

But in fact they are all painstakingly rendered on canvas with acrylic paints by Canadian artist Jason de Graaf. The hyperrealistic paintings, which almost appear as if they are computer generated, are like freeze frames of a world more magical than our own - inspiring the term Magic Realism as a description.

Art and the Internet of Things

Many people communicate through mobiles, blackberries, digital organizers, palmtops. Cars become information spaces with navigational systems and consoles like Nintendo DS have wireless capacities and get linux kernels installed.We are witnessing a move towards pervasive computing and disappearing technologies in intelligent clothing (wearables), smart environments (knowing where and who we are), pervasive games, and we will see doors opening for some and closing to others. Mimickry and camouflage will become part of application design. Ipods and Iphones will show colors and produce sounds corresponding with your surroundings. TOC Arts. The Visual Patterns of Audio Frequencies Seen through Vibrating Sand.

As the speaker is cycled through various frequencies the sand naturally gravitates to the area where the least amount of vibration occurs causing fascinating geometric patterns to emerge. There’s actually a mathematical law that determines how each shape will form, the higher the frequency the more complex the pattern. Art and the Evolution of Consciousness — Eros & Kosmos.

De la libération des artistes par le revenu de base

Recevoir des subventions ? Pour le metteur en scène Pierre-Jérôme Adjedj, la transformation amenée par le revenu de base rendra caduques ces questions, libérant l’expression de la créativité, que ce soit pour une oeuvre ou pour la vie. Article initialement paru le 22 août 2013 sur Le Tadorne. Il m’est souvent arrivé de regretter chez nombre de mes collègues du spectacle vivant le manque d’appétit, affiché ou profond, pour la chose politique. Certes il est toujours de bon ton de truffer les notes d’intention et les programmes de salles d’arguments vibrants expliquant la portée politique de tel projet, puisqu’il « parle de la société d’aujourd’hui » . J’aurais pu choisir de développer, à partir de ce constat de départ, tout un propos sur l’éducation populaire, mais je serais vite tombé dans la paraphrase de Frank Lepage et de ceux qui, avec lui, ont magnifiquement développé les réflexions récentes sur ce sujet.

What Is Art? Favorite Famous Definitions, from Antiquity to Today

After the recent omnibus of definitions of science by some of history’s greatest minds and definitions of philosophy by some of today’s most prominent philosophers, why not turn to an arguably even more nebulous domain of humanity? Gathered here are some of my favorite definitions of art, from antiquity to today. Henry James in his short story The Middle Years: We work in the dark — we do what we can — we give what we have.
