The title of the book is called 'On Violence' and has been written by Hannah Ardent and published in 1969. In this book Hannah Ardent tries explaining the subject of violence in a historical context and questions the nature of its use. She also re-examines the relationships between politics, war, violence and power and uses other theorists to...
A diachronic study or analysis concerns itself with the evolution and change over time of that which is studied; it is roughly equivalent to historical. Thus diachronic linguistics is also known as historical linguistics. A synchronic study or analysis, in contrast, limits its concern to a particular moment of time. Thus synchronic linguistics takes a language as a working system at a particular point in time without concern for how it has developed to its present state. The extent to which...

The essay investigates the inspiration of art in architecture and the links and interchanges between them in the late sixties and early seventies with emphasis on the exchanges between conceptual art and architecture. The basic assumption of the essay is that the rigorous conceptualisation that characterised conceptual artist was transferred into some advanced architectural practices during the late sixties and early seventies. It also discusses about the parameters on which the inspirations...
By cooling a dilute gas to very low temperature, close to absolute zero, the particles may occupy their lowest energy state. The state of matter of such a system is called Bose-Einstein condensation (BEC). This system has the lowest possible energy and particles have the same wave function. The transition occurs when atoms are enough cold below the critical temperature. This critical temperature for a uniform three-dimensional ideal gas with number density n and mass M is (11) * MERGEFORMAT (.)...
Derrida is a radical sceptic to knowledge and questions and examines the fundamental norms and premises of dominant philosophical discourses through the critical technique of deconstruction. Deconstruction highlights that the explicit meaning of a term or word does not exist since it is apart of language and is therefore marked by difference, representation and understanding. Deconstruction in the philosophical and literary sense can be broadly defined as the 'exposing [of] unquestioned...
Time by time, age by age, people get more and more civilized. Starting from the Stone Age the world has arrived at the ICT Age now. During this period of development people have been practicing and have advanced both technologically and socially. As such people are categorized as good or bad in terms of a certain frame. There are certain ways of measuring good and bad. The issues involved in attributing good and bad are treated under ethical, legal, social and professional areas. If anybody...
In the argument for or against whether strong programmed is consistent with scientific realism, it is ideal to have the knowledge of what the aspects involved are. This includes the definition of what philosophy is, what scientific realism is, and also what the strong program means. Philosophy can be described as the quest to understand the existence of man through rational justifications in areas such as logical inference, values that influence humans and also establishing the claims of...
An Analysis of Husserl's Phenomenology Husserl's phenomenology is difficult to grasp at first due to the fact that his argument appears to contradict the way in which we have been conditioned to think since childhood.  The entire concept of ideas and things being known by the senses, while believable, is basically at odds with the way in which we have been programmed to think as people.  To explain this, one should refer to the fact that throughout our educational careers, we have been...
Before you can be honest and open with others, you must first be so with yourself. Who are you? What are your values? What do you stand for? Who do you rely on? Do you rely on yourself and your cunning and wits, or to you rely on Allah? These are simple questions but they form the basis of who we are and on which foot we will start off on in life. If you answer the above questions and find that you are a Muslim and have clear values that mean you will not (for example); drink alcohol or take...
