central concerns of the Ontology . These themes, which will now be explored one by one, comprise (a) ‘manipulation’ (b) ‘technical reason’ (c) ‘shock’ (d) ‘resistance to manipulation from the ground up’ (e) ‘form and content’ (f ) ‘authorship’ (g) ‘the aesthetic categories of Stimmung and indefinite objectivity’, and (h) ‘totality

tests. If the conclusions we derive (to the effect that certain actions are right or wrong) are morally acceptable, if they are in line with the content of our considered moral intuitions, then we may say that the moral conjecture in question explains the conclusions (it explains morally the rightness or wrongness of these actions). We then tend to speak of the content of our conjecture as a true representation of a moral law. This is parallel to when, in science, we tend to speak of our inductively supported hypotheses as descriptive of laws of nature. If a certain

individuals, taking full note of their gravity. I do, nonetheless, hope to show that the task of studying significant individuals can be accomplished systematically. Politicians leave thousands of clues as to their worldview and style each day, through the words they speak. Indeed, few love to talk as much as the politician. I introduce techniques through which we can measure the individual characteristics of these verbally effusive individuals through careful content analysis of the words they speak, and thereby begin to organize the chaotic and idiosyncratic nature of the

From theory to advocacy
Andrea Boggio and Cesare P. R. Romano

10 Freedom of research and the right to science: from theory to advocacy Andrea Boggio and Cesare P. R. Romano Although the right to science, which includes both the right of scientists to do research and the right of everyone to benefit from that research, was recognised internationally as early as 1948, it is arguably the least known, discussed and enforced international human right. As a result, its binding normative content is not settled and needs to be better clarified and specified. Progress at the conceptual level has been made in the last few years but

Derricke, paratext, and poetic reception

conventions in unconventional ways. 8 Derricke is seemingly no different as he praises his dedicatee, Sir Philip Sidney, his protagonist, Sir Henry Sidney, his readers in Ireland, and his ‘good and gentle’ and ‘well disposed reader[s]’ in England, supposedly. 9 Yet, the paratextual structure of Derricke’s poem is far from predictable; arguably its abundance of letters to the reader and dedications suggests that Derricke is concerned with keeping the predictable readings of his content at the forefront of his reader’s mind

accepted material of cinematic culture, together with an explicit rejection of its norms and conventions, and demonstrates a commitment to formulating, in form as well as content, alternative processes of filmic narration. Blier’s most significant achievement is to have translated this rejection of the conventions of established modes of cultural expression into an overarching embrace of traditionally devalued low cultural forms

Queens & Kings and Other Things
Roger Sabin

In 1874, a spectacular comedy book was published, Queens & Kings and Other Things , notable for the quality of its production and the freewheeling recklessness of its content (Duval 1874b ). As a collection of highly illustrated ‘nonsense poems’ in the Edward Lear mould, it was ostensibly for children, but was designed for adults too. Written and drawn by the mysterious S. A. [Royal Highness] the Princess Hesse Schwartzbourg, it concerned the peculiar goings-on in invented royal households, where queens dismantle their heads to stop

content that readers may find interesting on FutureLearn. 1 The book is structured as follows. In the remainder of this introductory chapter, we outline three models of power and then define the ‘work and employment studies’ (WES) approach adopted throughout the book. In Chapter 2 we look at shifts to non-standard forms of work, the power of technology along with the importance of context and history, in order to better understand issues of power and politics at work. In Chapter 3 the power of the state and forms of employment regulation are debated. Chapter 4

Adventures in reality: why (punk) fanzines matter

politics, zines formed part of the ‘long line of media for the misbegotten’: amateur, noncommercial, counter-hegemonic.29 The content of British punk fanzines has warranted less attention. Beyond Matthew Worley’s survey of their varied political approaches and Matt Grimes and Tim Wall’s comparative study of early and contemporary anarcho zines, the focus has tended to be on the form rather than the substance of fanzine production.30 Even the Punk & Post-Punk journal has to date published just two fanzine-related articles – Brett Lashua and Sara Cohen’s mapping of

of differences between programmes and advertisements. Children are assisted in this context by the physical divide between programmes and advertisements (Zuckerman et al., 1978; Kunkel & Roberts, 1991). If the visible divide between advertisements and surrounding media content is removed, the net result will be to render the advertising less physically distinct. Although there are other clues to the nature of advertising that experienced consumers can identify to help them recognise when they are confronted with a persuasive message, this type of advertising
