Resisting McCarthyism Stanford University Press

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Of the sixty-nine professors fired nationwide for political reasons during the McCarthy Era, nearly half were from the University of California. A small band of men and women at California's Berkeley and Los Angeles campuses defied the stranglehold of McCarthyism in a refusal to sign the non-communist loyalty oath required by the institution. While college professors across the nation meekly acquiesced to non-communist oaths in order to keep their jobs, this group of 'nonsigners' resisted in defense of free speech. Revisiting a controversy considered one of the most important crises ever faced by an American university, Bob Blauner brings to life the stories of those who exhibited such civic courage. His account draws on new, previously untapped primary sources and interviews with surviving participants and their children.In a narrative that unfolds like a suspense thriller and with tragically flawed as well as heroic characters on both sides of the conflict, this incredible look at the beginnings of resistance within the California system reminds us of the importance of free speech and academic freedom in American culture. The legacy of these resisters and the fears of those engaged in the global fight against communism continue to resonate in contemporary society as we debate the meanings and obligations of freedom, patriotism, and civic duty.

Excerpt: Wilhelm Reich (March 24, 1897 - November 3, 1957) was an Austrian-American psychiatrist and psychoanalyst, known as one of the most radical figures in the history of psychiatry. He was the author of several notable books, including The Mass Psychology of Fascism and Character Analysis, both published in 1933. Reich worked with Sigmund Freud in the 1920s and was a respected analyst for much of his life, focusing on character structure rather than on individual neurotic symptoms. He tried to reconcile Marxism and psychoanalysis, arguing that neurosis is rooted in the physical, sexual, economic, and social conditions of the patient, and promoted adolescent sexuality, the availability of contraceptives, abortion, and divorce, and the importance for women of economic independence. His work influenced a generation of intellectuals, including Saul Bellow, William S. Burroughs, Paul Edwards, Norman Mailer, A. S. Neill, and Robert Anton Wilson, and shaped innovations such as Fritz Perls's Gestalt therapy, Alexander Lowen's bioenergetic analysis, and Arthur Janov's primal therapy. Later in life he became a controversial figure who was both adored and condemned. He began to violate some of th...

Jante Universitet tredition

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

THE WRITING ON THE WALL The trilogy Jante Universitet offers a comprehensive critique of the Danish university system, showing the wide-ranging consequences of New Public Management to a country s educational standards and its economy. HANDBOOK AND NOVEL-LIKE STORY The trilogy offers the unique combination of a handbook and an authentic story. The novel-like story line is based on the experiences of a German professor, documented over a 3-year period at a Danish university.As a systematic handbook, Jante Universitet can be read within two hours using the clearly marked short cuts . The individual episodes depict the absurdities of everyday life at a university, from departmental structures and petty intrigues through a scandalous teaching strategy to the questionable management methods of administrators who have total power over the academic staff.The handbook is a tool for those who are interested in and have responsibility for university education not only in Denmark, but in all countries where New Public Management has begun to negatively impact higher education. VOLUME 3: TOTALITARIAN STRUCTURESA totalitarian regime does not tolerate criticism. Office arrest is one of the sanctions such a regime will use as punishment for a critical professor for example in Denmark.This is what Professor Liane realizes after having rightfully criticized the scandalous standards at Jante University. The tricks used by the management to bully the critical professor and drive her out of her position would be fitting for a crime novel or a Kafkaesk story, in which human rights and a democratic legal system disappear into thin air.TOTALITARIAN STRUCTURES comprises several little books in one volume. Six chapters present a concise analysis of the New Public Management system and its fatal consequences for education and society. A unit of five chapters illustrates why legal security stands on shaky ground in Denmark. The systematic introductions to the six seasons in the book offer you a short cut to the basic criticism. BACKGROUND The trilogy is based on the so-called Koldau Case that caused a major scandal in Denmark in 2012, concerning the right of university staff to freedom of speech, the mismanagement of and totalitarian structures within Danish universities, the low standards of university education in the humanities the disastrous consequences of the Danish University Law of 2003.

Trial of Socrates Head Of Zeus

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

The Athens of Socrates's time has gone down in history as the very place where democracy and freedom of speech were born. Yet this city put Socrates, its most famous philosopher, to death. Presumably this was because it citizens did not like what he was teaching. Yet he had been teaching there all his life, unmolested. Why did they wait until he was 70, and had only a few years to live, before executing him? In unraveling the long-hidden issues of the most famous free speech case of all time, noted author I.F. Stone ranges far and wide over both Roman and Greek history to present an engaging and rewarding introduction to classical antiquity and its relevance to society today.

Dubai High Arabian Publishing Ltd

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

In early 2007, writer and theatre director Michael Schindhelm was appointed by the Dubai authorities as consultant on a projected opera house, and in early 2008 found himself with a broader remit as director of the newly founded Dubai Culture and Arts Authority. His diary of 2008 is a partly fictionalized account of his first twelve months of both working and living in Dubai. It is a meditation, from a cultural perspective, on the nature of this extraordinary city and its project to reinvent itself according to new rules of its own devising. From the outset there were profound cultural issues to be faced. Can essentially alien art forms be transplanted effectively? Can they be imposed top-down by the authorities? Can high culture ever be financially self-supporting? In a society run like a business by a tiny, unaccountable elite, in which freedom of speech is limited and 90 percent of the inhabitants are transient, expendable expatriates, can the arts realistically be nurtured as a form of social expression and self-examination? The author's efforts to create projects were undermined by misunderstandings over the nature and purpose of the arts - in his employers' conception, little more than a marketing tool to boost Dubai's brand as a premier global tourist resort. His woes were compounded by the lack of clear distinction between government and private enterprise, and by the very Arabian custom of bringing in privileged outsiders to advise on, and occasionally to compete with, schemes supposedly under his direction. Ultimately, his projects were undone by the global financial crash of late 2008. Despite such travails, the author is able to see the funny side and retains some sympathy for the Dubai project. He remains optimistic, seeing in Dubai and other Gulf States a glimmer of hope for international cultural dialogue, leading to increased understanding between the Arab world and the West.

New Eastern Europe 4/2013 Searching for Success Kolegium Europy Wschodniej


Why Europe's integration with the East can still be achieved and what it will take?In the lead up to this November?s Vilnius Summit, the fall 2013 issue of New Eastern Europe has a strong focus on the developments within the Eastern Partnership (EaP) and the search for success since its launch in 2009.The issue opens with exclusive op-eds written for New Eastern Europe by two foreign ministers: Carl Bildt of Sweden and Radosław Sikorski of Poland, both representing the states which initiated the EaP and still believe in its success. Success is possible, write foreign policy experts, Jana Kobzova, Rafał Sadowski and Adam Balcer, provided more work is done and new strategies are made. Essays by Vitaly Portnikov, Pawel Kowal and Kakha Gogolashvili give the reader deeper insight into the specific issues facing the countries of the EaP and what will come after Vilnius.This issue also presents the results of an exclusive New Eastern Europe scorecard, in which ten European experts grade the EaP?s progress and break down the successes and remaining challenges to the initiative.The Fall 2013 issue includes a special section on the role of new media in Eastern Europe and brings to light many issues related to freedom of speech online. Mykola Kniazhystksy, a Ukrainian journalist and member of Ukraine?s parliament, argues that private media in Ukraine is basically a toy for the super-rich, while Igor Lyubashenko points to the growing role of internet usage as a new shift in Ukrainian society. Likewise, Sergey Utkin discusses how the internet is not only a space for free media in Russia; it is also a space for the authorities who are becoming savvier online. Eryk Mistewicz?s article on Poland shows that in this new media environment there is no more need for journalists.


Ethics of Information - 2844857740

Ethics of Information Oxford University Press

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Luciano Floridi develops an original ethical framework for dealing with the new challenges posed by Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs). ICTs have profoundly changed many aspects of life, including the nature of entertainment, work, communication, education, health care, industrial production and business, social relations, and conflicts. They have had a radical and widespread impact on our moral lives and on contemporary ethical debates. Privacy, ownership, freedom of speech, responsibility, technological determinism, the digital divide, and pornography online are only some of the pressing issues that characterise the ethical discourse in the information society. They are the subject of Information Ethics (IE), the new philosophical area of research that investigates the ethical impact of ICTs on human life and society. Since the seventies, IE has been a standard topic in many curricula. In recent years, there has been a flourishing of new university courses, international conferences, workshops, professional organizations, specialized periodicals and research centres. However, investigations have so far been largely influenced by professional and technical approaches, addressing mainly legal, social, cultural and technological problems. This book is the first philosophical monograph entirely and exclusively dedicated to it. Floridi lays down, for the first time, the conceptual foundations for IE. He does so systematically, by pursuing three goals: a) a metatheoretical goal: it describes what IE is, its problems, approaches and methods; b) an introductory goal: it helps the reader to gain a better grasp of the complex and multifarious nature of the various concepts and phenomena related to computer ethics; c) an analytic goal: it answers several key theoretical questions of great philosophical interest, arising from the investigation of the ethical implications of ICTs. Although entirely independent of The Philosophy of Information (OUP, 2011), Floridi's previous book, The Ethics of Information complements it as new work on the foundations of the philosophy of information.
