Jakob Böhme

Jakob Böhme
Jakob Böhme (/ˈbeɪmə, ˈboʊ-/;[1] 1575 – November 17, 1624) was a German Christian mystic and theologian. He is considered an original thinker within the Lutheran tradition, and his first book, commonly known as Aurora, caused a great scandal. In contemporary English, his name may be spelled Jacob Boehme; in seventeenth-century England it was also spelled Behmen, approximating the contemporary English pronunciation of the German Böhme. Biography[edit] Jakob Böhme (anonymous portrait) Böhme was born in March 8, 1575, at Alt Seidenberg (now Stary Zawidów, Poland), a village near Görlitz in Upper Lusatia, a territory of the Holy Roman Empire. In 1610 Böhme experienced another inner vision in which he further understood the unity of the cosmos and that he had received a special vocation from God. The shop in Görlitz, which was sold in 1613, had allowed Böhme to buy a house in 1610 and to finish paying for it in 1618. Aurora and writings[edit] Theology[edit] 1. 1.

Jacques Lacan Jacques Marie Émile Lacan (French: [ʒak lakɑ̃]; 13 April 1901 – 9 September 1981) was a French psychoanalyst and psychiatrist who has been called "the most controversial psycho-analyst since Freud".[1] Giving yearly seminars in Paris from 1953 to 1981, Lacan influenced many leading French intellectuals in the 1960s and the 1970s, especially those associated with poststructuralism. His ideas had a significant impact on critical theory, literary theory, 20th-century French philosophy, sociology, feminist theory, film theory and clinical psychoanalysis.[2] Biography[edit] Early life[edit] Lacan was born in Paris, the eldest of Emilie and Alfred Lacan's three children. In 1920, on being rejected as too thin for military service, he entered medical school and, in 1926, specialised in psychiatry at the Sainte-Anne Hospital in Paris. 1930s[edit] In 1931 Lacan became a licensed forensic psychiatrist. Two years later, Lacan was elected to the Société psychanalytique de Paris. 1940s[edit] 1950s[edit]

Atavism Early embryos of various species display some ancestral features, like the tail on this human embryo. These features normally disappear in later development, but it may not happen if the animal has an atavism.[1][2] In social sciences, atavism is the tendency of reversion. Biology[edit] Evolutionarily traits that have disappeared phenotypically do not necessarily disappear from an organism's DNA. Other examples of observed atavisms include: Culture[edit] Atavism is a term in Joseph Schumpeter's explanation of World War I in twentieth-century liberal Europe. Social Darwinism[edit] In addition, the concept of atavism as part of an individualistic explanation of the causes of criminal deviance was popularised by the Italian criminologist Cesare Lombroso in the 1870s.[34] He attempted to identify physical characteristics common to criminals and labeled those he found as atavistic, 'throw-back' traits that determined 'primitive' criminal behavior.

Prima facie Latin expression meaning "at first sight" Burden of proof[edit] Prima facie evidence does not need to be conclusive or irrefutable: at this stage, evidence rebutting the case is not considered, only whether any party's case has enough merit to take it to a full trial. Res ipsa loquitur[edit] Prima facie is often confused with res ipsa loquitur ('the thing speaks for itself', or literally 'the thing itself speaks'), the common law doctrine that when the facts make it self-evident that negligence or other responsibility lies with a party, it is not necessary to provide extraneous details, since any reasonable person would immediately find the facts of the case. Use in academic philosophy[edit] The phrase is also used in academic philosophy. Other uses and references[edit] A common usage of the phrase is the concept of a "prima facie speed limit", which has been used in Australia and the United States.
