Abstract

This book challenges every common presumption that exists about the trafficking of women for the sex trade. It is a detailed account of an entire population of trafficked Albanian women whose varied experiences, including selling sex on the streets of France, clearly demonstrate how much the present discourse about trafficked women is misplaced and inadequate. The heterogeneity of the women involved and their relationships with various men is clearly presented as is the way women actively created a panoptical surveillance of themselves as a means of self-policing. There is no artificial divide between women who were deceived and abused and those who "choose" sex work; in fact the book clearly shows how peripheral involvement in sex work was to the real agenda of the women involved. Most of the women described in this book were not making economic decisions to escape desperate poverty nor were they the uneducated naïve entrapped into sexual slavery. The women's success in transiting trafficking to achieve their own goals without the assistance of any outside agency is a testimony to their resilience and resolve.

Abstract

In this chapter, I review recent work on neuroscientifi c threats to free will. What is it for something to threaten free will? Consider, fi rst, an apparent threat. You are walking in the dark, and a shadow looms in the distance. It certainly appears threatening, but you are not sure. What do you do? You consider the source of the threat (the thing casting the shadow, and you attempt to discover whether the threat is actual (an attacker) or merely apparent (a tree). And if the threat is actual, you attempt to discern what epistemic and behavioral changes are required of you.

Abstract

Reports on a new generation of Internet controls that establish a new normative terrain in which surveillance and censorship are routine.Internet filtering, censorship of Web content, and online surveillance are increasing in scale, scope, and sophistication around the world, in democratic countries as well as in authoritarian states. The first generation of Internet controls consisted largely of building firewalls at key Internet gateways; China's famous “Great Firewall of China” is one of the first national Internet filtering systems. Today the new tools for Internet controls that are emerging go beyond mere denial of information. These new techniques, which aim to normalize (or even legalize) Internet control, include targeted viruses and the strategically timed deployment of distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks, surveillance at key points of the Internet's infrastructure, take-down notices, stringent terms of usage policies, and national information shaping strategies. Access Controlled reports on this new normative terrain. The book, a project from the OpenNet Initiative (ONI), a collaboration of the Citizen Lab at the University of Toronto's Munk Centre for International Studies, Harvard's Berkman Center for Internet and Society, and the SecDev Group, offers six substantial chapters that analyze Internet control in both Western and Eastern Europe and a section of shorter regional reports and country profiles drawn from material gathered by the ONI around the world through a combination of technical interrogation and field research methods.

Abstract

En la edición 2017 de las Jornadas sobre Marcel Proust, los trabajos pueden articularse en torno a tres diálogos que se plantean en su obra o a partir de ella: 1) diálogo hacia y desde otras obras y manifestaciones artísticas. Aquí la comunicación, en doble dirección hacia el arte del pasado y el arte del futuro, anticipa o recupera obras o aspectos de manifestaciones artísticas; 2) diálogo con la filosofía a partir de la presencia de problemas y concepciones filosóficas en la novela y en la diversidad de lecturas filosóficas de la novela; 3) diálogo con la naturaleza, presente como una suerte de sustrato de la trama, en una multiplicidad de hermenéuticas que van desde la visión poética y encantada de la infancia y las primeras ensoñaciones juveniles a la naturaleza como fuente de misterio y de lo indescifrable y, finalmente, ligada a la vejez, a la destrucción y a la muerte.

Abstract

Se publican las actas de las “Jornadas Marcel Proust: Literatura y Filosofía” en cuyas ponencias los investigadores exploran las múltiples conexiones entre filosofía y literatura presentes en el obra de Marcel Proust. En efecto, puesto que En busca del tiempo perdido reconstruye diversas tradiciones literarias, filosóficas y artísticas a la vez que suscita lecturas heterogéneas y divergentes, lo trabajos de las jornadas profundizan algunas de esas relaciones o proponen nuevas posibilidades de lectura. En las ponencias se indaga, en última instancia, sobre cuestiones y concepciones filosóficas inmanentes a los desarrollos ficcionales y las relaciones entre demostración ficcional y demostración filosófica, desde los estudios de género al neopragmatismo, de Merleau Ponty a Benjamin o Sartre.

Abstract

Los trabajos aquí reunidos reflejan el resultado de las comunicaciones y conferencias presentadas en el Coloquio Internacional Sobre el pensamiento de Maurice Merleau-Ponty desarrollado durante los días 6 y 7 de diciembre de 2016 en la FaHCE-UNLP. En él se pusieron a consideración y debate interpretaciones sobre algunos tópicos fundamentales de la obra del pensador francés, tales como las nociones de cuerpo, carne, quiasmo y naturaleza. Se revisaron relaciones distintivas en sus reflexiones poniendo el foco en el arte, en la historicidad, en la pintura y en la ciencia, así como algunos cruces posibles con otros pensamientos como los de Husserl, Heidegger, Rancière, Ricoeur, o el de los estudios de género.

Abstract

Los análisis genéticos afectan a derechos fundamentales, por lo que el uso de esta información debe estar supeditado a vías de control democrático. En la actualidad, la lucha contra grandes delitos, como por ejemplo el terrorismo, aparentemente legitima a invadir derechos antes considerados intangibles. La presente obra, fruto del trabajo multidisciplinar llevado a cabo por juristas, filósofos, biólogos, técnicos y médicos, tiene por objetivo poner de manifiesto cuáles son los problemas ético-jurídicos derivados de la obtención, el análisis y el almacenamiento del ADN, así como sus usos judiciales y extrajudiciales. Ante el difícil equilibrio entre libertad individual y seguridad colectiva, este libro ayuda a comprender los conflictos que subyacen en el manejo de una herramienta informativa tan poderosa como son las muestras y los perfiles del ADN.

Abstract

This new, completely revised and re-written edition of aesthetics and subjectivity brings up to date the original book's account of the path of German philosophy from Kant, via Fichte and Holderlin, the early Romantis, Schelling, Hegel, Schleimacher, to Nietzsche, in view of recent historical research and contemporary arguments in philosophy and theory in the humanities. The original book helped make subjectivity, aesthetics, music and language a significant part of debate in the humanity. Bowie develops the approaches to these areas in relation to new theoretical advances which bridge the divide between the continental and analytical traditions of philosophy. In light of the huge growth of interest in German philosophy as a resource for re-thinking both literary and cultural theory, and contemporary philosophy, aesthetics and subjectivity will be indispensable reading for students and teachers in all humanities subjects, from literature, to philosophy, to music and beyond.
