Optical Fiber

An optical fiber is made up of the core (carrying the light pulses), the cladding (reflecting the light pulses back into the core) and the buffer coating (protecting the core and cladding from moisture, damage, etc). Together, all of this creates a fiber optic which can carry up to 10 million messages at any time using light pulses. Fiber optics is the overlap of applied science and engineering concerned with the design and application of optical fibers. Optical fibers are...

OSI Seven-Layer Model

In the 1980s, the European-dominated International Standards Organization (ISO), began to develop its Open Systems Interconnection (OSI) networking suite. OSI has two major components: an abstract model of networking (the Basic Reference Model, or seven-layer model), and a set of concrete protocols. The standard documents that describe OSI are for sale and not currently available online. Parts of OSI have influenced Internet protocol development, but none more than the abstract model itself, documented in OSI 7498 and its various addenda. In...

Suzanne K. Langer: Expressiveness PDF Print E-mail

What art expresses is not actual feeling, but ideas of feeling; as language does not express actual things and events but ideas of them. Art is expressed through and through – every line, every sound, every gesture; and therefore it is a hundred percent symbolic.  It is not sensuously pleasing and also symbolic; the sensuous quality is in the eservice of its vital important. A work of art is far more symbolic than a word, which can be learned and even employed without any knowledge of its meaning; for a purely and wholly articulated symbol presents its important directly to any beholder who is sensitive at all to articulated forms in the given medium.

John Lukacs, in his own estimation, is much more than a ordinary historian. In what he considers his most important book, Historical Consciousness, he elaborates “not a philosophy of history but its opposite: a multifaceted statement and exposition of a historical philosophy …. It wishes to demonstrate the profound yet considerably unsystematic, historicity of our knowledge”. When we learn from Conor Cruise O’Brien that Lukacs possesses “one of the most powerful, as well as one of the most learned minds of our time”, we eagerly await an account of Lukacs’ philosophical discoveries.

Alfred North Whitehead (1861-1947) believed that the future course of world history depends upon people’s decisions as to the relation between science and religion. In fact, the force of religious intuitions and the force of scientific endeavors are the two most powerful forces in history. Whitehead’s soulutions to conflicts between science and religion was to suggest modifications in both science and religion, as each has been traditionally understood, so that an inclusive alternative world-view might be constructed. He turned to speculative philosophy for this constructive task. Whitehead proposed that philosophy attains its chief importance by fusing religion and science into one rational scheme of thought.

In 1762, Rousseau published The Social Contract and another major work, Emile, or On Education. Both works criticized religion, and were consequently banned in France and his native Geneva. As a result, Rousseau was forced to flee his homeland and live under the protection of others for the rest of his life.
