Protean character of volition

The protean character of volition is implicit in many philosophies of technology. Technologies have been associated with diverse types of will, drive, motivation, aspiration, intention, and choice. For…

Technophilia

I’d like to think that computers are neutral, a tool like any other, a hammer that can build a house or smash a skull. But there is something…

Des nouveaux objets

La “vision” algorithmique ne décrit rien mais fait apparaître des corrélations prédictives – reliant entre eux des données recueillies dans des contextes temporellement hétérogènes. Ces corrélations rendent appréhendable…

Fuzzy semantics

In this article I have suggested that the grammatical ambiguity and logical fallacies entailed in the concept of technology are linked with a fetishistic perception of modern artefacts….

In between

It is the achievement of phenomenology to have shown how subtly and variedly our consciousness in fact works, and how primitive and crude are the concepts by which…

Universalisme

Scientism

The problem isn’t the scientific description or analysis of presence-at-hand per se; Heidegger is not anti-science. The problem is scientism, the view that science gives us the whole…

This-worldly conception

Phenomenology endorses a this-worldly conception of objectivity and reality and seeks to overcome the scepticism that argues that the way the world appears to us is compatible with…

Commoditization of scholarship

One of the strangest projects of privatization and commodification in the early twentieth-first century has been the movement to commoditize scholarship. Two versions have been surprisingly powerful. In…

Cognitive detour

Perhaps modern science has succeeded to well. It has become difficult for us to recognize that much of our being does not have a cognitive and representational aspect….

Crude criteria

There is thus a strong methodological case for emphasizing the need to assign explicitly evaluative weights to different components of quality of life (or of well-being) and then…

It cannot play the piano

Well, of course I am not my brain – for my brain is certainly not married, not a psychiatrist, and it has no children. Even worse, it does…

What our brain wants

We are right to assert that the formation of each identity is a kind of resilience, in other words, a kind of contradictory construction, a synthesis of memory…

Man a Machine, 1748

Man is so complicated a machine that it is impossible to get a clear idea of the machine beforehand, and hence impossible to define it. For this reason,…

Unlikely

The implications from these findings suggest that we should not expect large positive (or negative) impacts from ICT investments in schools or computers at home. Schools should not…

Computational thinking

Computational thinking has triumphed because it has first seduced us with its power, then befuddled us with its complexity, and finally settled into our cortexes as self-evident. Its…

Apollo 11

Man taler tit om, hvordan nutidens smartphones er millioner af gange kraftigere end de computere der blev brugt på Apollo 11-missionen og dens månelanding. For nogen er det beviset på hvor meget fremskridt vi har gjort de seneste 48 år. Men det kan også tolkes som et vidnesbyrd om hvor lidt computerkraft der egentlig er brug for, for at nå vores højeste mål.

“Hvis der skal udvikles datamatformidlede og datamatunderstøttende undervisningssystemer – og som sagt er de nationale demografiske argumenter herfor ikke stærke – så må minimumskravet være, at der etableres et udviklingsarbejde, hvor det er udviklingspsykologer, dannelsesteoretiekre, uddannelsessociologer, der fører det store ord, og hvor der hele tiden sikres en brugerdialog – med pædagoger og elever – med indbygget vetoret.
