This book aims at finding some answers to the questions: What is the influence of humans in controlling CAD and how much is human in control of its surroundings? How far does our reach as humans really go? Do the complex algorithms that we use for city planning nowadays live up to their expectations and do they offer enough quality? How much data do we have and can we control? Are today’s inventions reversing the humanly controlled algorithms into a space where humans are controlled by the algorithms? Are processing power, robots for the digital environment and construction in particular not only there to rediscover what we already knew and know or do they really bring us further into the fields of constructing and architecture? The chapter authors were invited speakers at the 6th Symposium "Design Modelling Symposium: Humanizing Digital Reality", which took place in Ensa-Versailles, France from 16 - 20 September 2017.

Evolutionary Theory Fringe Or Central To Psychological Science

The computational theory of mind, which views the brain as an information processor that operates on cognitive representations, is central to modern cognitive psychology and is the dominant perspective from which brain function is conceptualized and studied. Evolutionary Psychology (EP) is the application of evolutionary theory to understanding human behaviour and cognition. Unlike other core Psychology topic areas (such as Personality, Learning or Developmental Psychology), however, EP is not defined by the subset of psychological phenomena it seeks to describe and understand. It is instead defined by a specific meta-theoretical perspective, from which it seeks to (potentially) explain all psychological phenomena. The central question posed by this volume is whether this over-arching nature provides an opportunity for evolutionary approaches to offer an alternative meta-theoretical perspective to the information processing / representational view of brain function and behavior.

Sundry Modernism

"With Sundry Modernism, Oraib Toukan presents an informal register of modernist Palestinian architecture—an assemblage of images and stories collected from 2013 to 2015 in the cities of Nablus, Ramallah, Jerusalem, Bethlehem, and Jericho. Using her photographs as conversation prompts with various residents, historians, and architects, Toukan places the anecdotes collected thereby into political and historical context, weaving together narrative and critique. Sundry Modernism sets out to be a gesture, a nod, a salutation to, and a critique of, the lines and angles of Palestinian modernism. It is a provocation on the act of looking, and, in particular, it is a proposal for reading apolitical forms in politicized contexts"--Publisher's website.

هذا الكتاب هو رواية بعنوان ``أنا كارنينا`` من تأليف الكاتب الروسي ليو تولستوي، والرواية تعد أثرا أدبيا عالميا وإنسانيا خالدا، تُرجمت إلى معظم لغات العالم، وأُعيد طبعها مئات المرَّات، وقد تباينت آراء النُّقاد في هذه الرواية، فوضعت فيها دراسات كثيرة راوحت بين الإعجاب التام والرفض النسبي، إن لم نقل الرفض التام، فمَنْ أُعجب بها أُعجب لأنَّه رأى فيها عصارة فن ``تولستوي`` وخاتمة أعماله الكبرى، ومَن انتقدها فقد رأى فيها خللا فنيٍّا، كما رأى أحداثًا ثانويةً كبيرةً تواكب الحدث الرئيس بل وتكاد تطغى عليه.
