Abstract

Sex is made socially. That this also applies to the biological gender sex - a postulate of queer-feminist theories -, this volume can be determined by biological theories for the first time decidedly and differentiated. The natural-philosophical and biological-medical gender theories of different periods of time (antiquity, incipient modernity, present) are presented and associated with social gender orders. Heinz-Jürgen Voß differentiates the struggling positions and shows that with process-oriented approaches, many genders are conceivable in biological theories - instead of just two or three.

Abstract

Wahrnehmung, Kognition und Ästhetik lassen sich als differente Verarbeitungs- und Ausdrucksformen einer biologischen Basisausstattung des Menschen verstehen. Ob diese stabil sind oder ob sie kulturell überformt oder gar transformiert werden, bildet die zentrale medienanthropologische Fragestellung des Bandes. Dabei wird geprüft, welcher Art die wechselseitigen Impulse sind, die zu kulturellen und biologischen Veränderungen führen können, welche Wirkung sie besitzen und welche Dauer ihnen zukommt. Diese Fragen richten sich nicht allein auf Prozesse wahrnehmungstechnischer, kognitiver oder ästhetischer Habitualisierungen, sondern thematisieren deren physiologische Voraussetzungen. Mit der Beteiligung ausgewiesener Forscher aus den Bereichen Biologie, Medizin und Hirnforschung erschließt dieser Band Neuland im Grenzgebiet der Natur- und Kulturwissenschaften.

Abstract

Language research is currently in a state of flux. The phenomenon of language is not merely the topic of investigation in linguistics, it is examined by a multitude of scholars with different scientific backgrounds. In order to examine how these various disciplines approach language, a think-tank was founded in 2002, called DITO, Dynamisch Inter(-en trans)disciplinair onderzoek, or Dynamic Inter- (and trans)disciplinary Research. The think-tank is located at the Belgian Vrije Universiteit Brussel (Free University of Brussels). This book provides short introductory articles to the language research conducted by some of the think-tank’s most important members, from within the point of view of the following 5 disciplines: philosophy of evolutionary biology, cognitive science, neuroscience, sign language research and artificial intelligence.
