Ciencias Sociales: Historia de la Astronomía

Nuestros antepasados ya se maravillaron con el espectáculo que ofrecía el firmamento y los fenómenos que allí se presentaban. Ante la imposibilidad de encontrarles una explicación, estos prodigios del cielo se asociaron con la magia y la religión, buscando en ellos la razón y la causa de los fenómenos sucedidos en la Tierra. Esto, junto con la superstición y el poder que otorgaba la capacidad de leer los destinos en las estrellas, dominaron las creencias humanas durante siglos. Muchos años de observación sentaron las bases científicas de la Astronomía con explicaciones más aproximadas sobre el Universo. Sin embargo, las creencias geocentristas, apoyadas por grupos religiosos y políticos con claros intereses de dominación, impusieron durante muchos siglos un sistema erróneo, impidiendo además el análisis y estudio de estas ciencias. Y a mediados del siglo XX llegó la astronáutica. AAS WorldWide Telescope — Web Client.

Internet Encyclopedia of Philosophy

The word itself was coined by the Italian philosopher Francesco Patrizi in the sixteenth century, and derives from the two Greek words pan (all) and psyche (soul or mind). Is the mind just an accident of the universe? The traditional view puts forward the idea that the vast majority of what there is in the universe is mindless.

‘Blade Runner’: A Game-Changing Science-Fiction Classic

Heavily disputed upon its release, often criticized as an occasionally senseless portrayal of a future with a shallow storyline and abundance of plot holes semi-efficiently covered up by admittedly wonderful visuals, this science-fiction masterpiece is still regarded as a strong polarizing factor in discussions among filmlovers, but its status has quite immeasurably improved since its debut in North American theaters back in 1982. Many people had a change of heart regarding its value. Roger Ebert himself first failed to register many of the things that made people love it so damn much, only to change his mind and reevaluate the movie decades later when a special edition was released on its 25th anniversary.

Solaris Discussion Questions. 1. Liana Bresler The film often made use of reflections, both in as a cinematographic device as well as in the development of the philosophical plot development of the film. Explain. Solaris and 2001: A Space odyssey, are both movies which deal with man’s loss of control in space due to advance technology and his quest for knowledge and discovery.

In Solaris, however, technology and space are not the main themes of the movie; they are vehicles through which the director raises question about the morality of our actions, self consciousness, and the mystery of human existence. CINE Y PSICOLOGÍA: STALKER (Andrej Tarkovsky, 1979) - PARTE I -: Sobre la naturaleza del camino y del deseo. En Stalker y en Solaris si algo no me interesaba era la ciencia ficción.

Pero, desgraciadamente, en Solaris aun hubo muchos elementos de ciencia ficción, que distraían de lo esencial. Todas aquellas naves espaciales que aparecían en la novela de Stanislav Lem, indudablemente, estaban bien elaboradas y tenían su interés, pero, vistas las cosas desde hoy, opino que la idea fundamental de aquella película se habría expresado con mucha más claridad si hubiéramos prescindido de todo aquello. La ciencia ficción no era en Stalker más que un punto de partida táctico, útil para ayudarnos a destacar aún más gráficamente el conflicto moral, que era lo esencial para nosotros.

Pero en todo lo que le sucede al protagonista en esa película no hay ciencia ficción de ningún tipo. Stalker no es simplemente el guía de un tour por la zona, él es también un guía espiritual. El vellocino de oro, el Santo Grial o el arca de la alianza son ejemplos de este tipo de tesoros. Hablar de la ruta, del viaje. Open Culture - The best free cultural & educational media on the web. Aboriginal Culture - Aboriginal Religion and Ceremony. Aboriginal Religion Aboriginal Ceremony. Aboriginal religion, like many other religions, is characterised by having a god or gods who created people and the surrounding environment during a particular creation period at the beginning of time.

Aboriginal people are very religious and spiritual, but rather than praying to a single god they cannot see, each group generally believes in a number of different deities, whose image is often depicted in some tangible, recognisable form. This form may be that of a particular landscape feature, an image in a rock art shelter, or in a plant or animal form.

If you’ve ever watched a 3D movie, you’ve noticed how the image on the screen appears to have a certain depth to it. Certain objects just seem farther away. Other objects (usually pointy things) seem to leap out from the screen. You’ve also probably noticed that you have to wear a pair of glasses to watch the movie. If you take the glasses off during the movie, things look somewhat blurry. 3D movies work by projecting two movies at the same time. The cult of Cthulhu: real prayer for a fake tentacle. Forty-one years ago in New York City, a man known only as Simon walks into a witchcraft supply shop with a cardboard manuscript box, the kind of thing you see in library rare book departments.

He estimates that the work in his possession is six or seven hundred years old. Simon is a Slavonic Orthodox priest, a student of the occult, but until he walked into that shop he didn't know anything about H.P. Lovecraft, a writer of "weird fiction" (the literary forefather of both science fiction and horror). Neither had he heard of the Necronomicon, a book that the author had invented for his stories. It's supposed to be an incredibly powerful grimoire, or collection of spells and incantations, and as Lovecraft was in the habit of blending reality and fantasy in his books — even going so far as enlisting other "weird" writers to expand on his characters and locations in their own stories — more credulous readers came to believe that the Necronomicon was real.

This War Photographer Embedded Himself in a Video Game. The Last of Us Remastered is a post-apocalyptic video game released earlier this year on PlayStation 4 with an in-game Photo Mode, which freezes the game and lets players shoot, edit and share photographs of their achievements. TIME assigned conflict photographer Ashley Gilbertson to use the Photo Mode to document the game’s protagonists as they fight to survive in a zombie-infested world. Gilbertson writes about his experience. I’ve spent a few days inside the body of an angry Hugh Jackman-lookalike.

TIME asked me to work as a photographer within the video game called The Last of Us Remastered, a hyper violent game in which a player must kill people that are infected with some type of brain and flesh condition. The game, which is very carefully rendered to look as real as possible, gives the player access to a wide variety of weapons, but it also provides players with a camera to shoot their own action.

Here are five science stories that I found intriguing during 2013. I don’t mean to imply that these necessarily represent the most important discoveries, rather, these are simply stories that, for one reason or another, caught my attention more than others. 1.

Thomas Mann. Thomas Mann (Lübeck, Imperio alemán, 6 de junio de 1875 – Zúrich, Suiza, 12 de agosto de 1955) fue un escritor alemán nacionalizado estadounidense. Considerado uno de los escritores europeos más importantes de su generación, Mann es recordado por el profundo análisis crítico que desarrolló en torno al alma europea y alemana en la primera mitad del siglo XX. Para ello tomó como referencias principales a la Biblia y las ideas de Goethe, Freud, Nietzsche y Schopenhauer.
