Contextualism in Philosophy: Knowledge, Meaning, and Truth

In epistemology and in philosophy of language there's fierce debate concerning the position of context in wisdom, knowing, and which means. Many modern epistemologists take heavily the thesis that epistemic vocabulary is context-sensitive.

Octavio Paz. Las palabras en libertad

En el centenario del nacimiento de Octavio Paz, un lúcido ensayo sobre l. a. vida y obra del premio Nobel mexicano.

Octavio Paz sigue definiendo el landscape de las letras y las principles en México, a cien años de su nacimiento.

Octavio Paz. Las palabras en libertad recorre el itinerario intelectual y biográfico de uno de los pensadores más importantes del siglo pasado y uno de los poetas hispanoamericanos más destacados de todos los tiempos. Escritor, diplomático, editor e intelectual público.

La libertad siempre fue una de las preocupaciones centrales del poeta. Para él, además de un concepto filosófico y político se trata de un acto que debe ejercitarse constantemente. El recorrido que propone Guadalupe Nettel tiene por brújula los angeles evolución de los angeles inspiration de libertad en los angeles obra de Octavio Paz a lo largo de cuatro periodos: sus comienzos literarios en nuestro país y el viaje a España durante los angeles guerra civil; París y su relación con los surrealistas y l. a. izquierda no alineada, su larga estancia en Oriente, y por último el regreso definitivo a México. A través de este itinerario, el libro revisa l. a. relación entre l. a. vida y l. a. obra de Paz; entre poesía y política, creación y crítica. También analiza su condición como figura pública y su polémico acercamiento con el gobierno mexicano en los años finales de su vida. Pues no basta con decir que los angeles obra de Octavio Paz es un producto del siglo XX mexicano, de los angeles tradición y de l. a. modernidad; hay que añadir que el siglo XX mexicano, l. a. tradición y los angeles modernidad también son productos de esa obra.

Example text

Let us summarize the principal characteristics of a rhizome: unlike trees or their roots, the rhizome connects any point to any other point, and its traits are not necessarily linked to traits of the same nature; it brings into play very different regimes of signs, and even nonsign states. The rhizome is reducible neither to the One nor the multiple. It is not the One that becomes Two or even directly three, four, five, etc. It is not a multiple derived from the One, or to which One is added (n + 1).

All of arborescent culture is founded on them, from biology to linguistics. Nothing is beautiful or loving or political aside from underground stems and aerial roots, adventitious growths and rhizomes. Amsterdam, a city entirely without roots, a rhizome-city with its stem-canals, where utility connects with the greatest folly in relation to a commercial war machine. Thought is not arborescent, and the brain is not a rooted or ramified matter. What are wrongly called "dendrites" do not assure the connection of neurons in a continuous fabric.

A rhizomebook, not a dichotomous, pivotal, or fascicular book. Never send down roots, or plant them, however difficult it may be to avoid reverting to the old procedures. "Those things which occur to me, occur to me not from the root up but rather only from somewhere about their middle. "22 Why is this so difficult? The question is directly one of perceptual semiotics. It's not easy to see things in the middle, rather than looking down on them from above or up at them from below, or from left to right or right to left: try it, you'll see that everything changes.
