Abstract

«Sono sicuro che, 3000 anni fa, molte persone criticavano il papiro e rimpiangevano l’antico supporto in pietra: sono sereno sull’avvenire del libro e sulla sua digitalizzazione». Così lo scrittore statunitense R. Banks rende misura del cambio progressivo e sofferto degli strumenti di conoscenza: l’affiancamento dei documenti digitali alle pubblicazioni cartacee è stato rapidamente percepito anche dal variegato mondo universitario, lasciando tuttavia non pochi dubbi agli utenti che in esso vi operano.Di che cosa si parla quando si menziona l’Open Access?Come e con che costi possono circolare i testi?Come questi vengono percepiti da chi li gestisce, da chi li distribuisce e da chi li legge?I contributi di questa miscellanea, rivolti soprattutto al pubblico di fruitori delle riviste umanistiche, forniscono alcune risposte a tali domande. Si dispongono in un ampio ventaglio di riflessioni, di diverso tenore e argomento, per discutere di uno strumento di pubblicazione innovativo e sempre più diffuso, ma ancora in via di definizione ed accettazione.

Abstract

“Fare Open Access” affronta con approccio positivo e operativo il tema strategico della diffusione del sapere scientifico in ottica open.L’Open Access è diventato uno degli obiettivi chiave delle politiche dell’innovazione dell’Unione Europea e dei princi­pali paesi industrializzati; ed è fondamentale conoscerne i lineamenti teorici e le concrete potenzialità.Gli autori sono tutti professionisti attivi da molti anni in questo campo e hanno quindi il polso delle questioni emergenti e delle maggiori criticità non solo da un punto vista teorico-dottrinale. Ognuno di loro affronta da diverse prospettive il tema più generale della comunicazione scientifica e quello pratico di come fare Open Access nell’attuale panorama ormai fortemente volto al digitale.Il testo è completato da un’utile appendice con i documenti di riferimento, come i principali testi-manifesto e le norme attualmente in vigore a livello nazionale e internazionale.

Abstract

This textbook analyzes a number of texts in “conformal translation,” that is, a translation in which the same Babylonian term is always translated in the same way and, more importantly, in which different terms are always translated differently. Appendixes are provided for readers who are familiar with basic Assyriology but otherwise philological details are avoided. All of these texts are from the second half of the Old Babylonian period, that is, 1800–1600 BCE. It is indeed during this period that the “algebraic” discipline, and Babylonian mathematics in general, culminates. Even though a few texts from the late period show some similarities with what comes from the Old Babylonian period, they are but remnants. Beyond analyzing texts, the book gives a general characterization of the kind of mathematics involved, and locates it within the context of the Old Babylonian scribe school and its particular culture. Finally, it describes the origin of the discipline and its impact in later mathematics, not least Euclid’s geometry and genuine algebra as created in medieval Islam and taken over in European medieval and Renaissance mathematics.

Abstract

Of the Contract is a version of a text that is as old as any memory, or a form of legal instrument that constitutes the basis of the world in which its terms have been translated. The text remains as open to renewal as that world remains to future alteration, and the terms are both already past, and always yet to come. The notion of the debt that is presented by the contract corresponds to a conception of accountancy and finance that provide a new approach to the contemporary problem of the sense of that external to the terms of human access. A reinterpretation of the philosophical tradition that runs through Levinas and Heidegger to Kant, Of the Contract is also grounded in the medieval tradition that was centered on the notion of “contraction,” and its writing was inspired by forms of life such as those found in the development of monastic constitutions, and the novels of knight errantry. It is also an oblique contribution to the recent discussions on the nature of debt, and is deeply marked by an awareness of climate change, and the insufficiencies of capital to overcome this crisis. All of these concerns however were contracted in a more acute awareness of the process of expression, and the work is given first of all as literature. It is the nature of the terms that they are open to untold interpretations.
