What We Do is Secrete: Paul Virilio, Planetarity, and Data Visualization

Perhaps three years ago, I was speaking with the architect, Neil Denari, about how, in the 1980-90’s, French theory of technology had been approached, fetishized, absorbed, and mobilized by experimental design practices, such as his own. About Virilio, he said something like, “we were trying to figure out what the architecture would look like that would embody his theory.” Clearly Virilio’s own early collaborations with Claude Parent were not it. “We kept hoping that the answer would be on the next page, but it never was.” The text below, considers one belated or at least delayed --and certainly problematic-- candidate for what Virilio’s thought looks like: Exit (2008).

Philosopher's Annual

Philosopher's Annual | phillosophy makes my mind go round | Scoop.it

A selection of the ten best articles published in philosophy each year—an attempt as simple to state as it is admittedly impossible to fulfill. Against a background of twenty-four volumes in hard copy, the Annual is now available entirely online.

How Culture Drove Human Evolution (Video)

How Culture Drove Human Evolution (Video) | phillosophy makes my mind go round | Scoop.it

Joseph Henrich : "The main questions I've been asking myself over the last couple years are broadly about how culture drove human evolution. Think back to when humans first got the capacity for cumulative cultural evolution—and by this I mean the ability for ideas to accumulate over generations, to get an increasingly complex tool starting from something simple. One generation adds a few things to it, the next generation adds a few more things, and the next generation, until it's so complex that no one in the first generation could have invented it. This was a really important line in human evolution, and we've begun to pursue this idea called the cultural brain hypothesis—this is the idea that the real driver in the expansion of human brains was this growing cumulative body of cultural information, so that what our brains increasingly got good at was the ability to acquire information, store, process and retransmit this non genetic body of information."

The War that Never Ends (Video)

The War that Never Ends (Video) | phillosophy makes my mind go round | Scoop.it

Here's a blast from the past. This was first aired on the BBC in 1991 just before the first Iraq war. (There may have been a 2006 performace or version too.) It's an interesting project and explicit in insisting the relevance of Thucydides and Plato for understanding modern conflicts too. It's a bit stagey at times. But there's a good cast (Ben Kingsley as Pericles, a young Nathaniel Parker as Alcibiades, Don Henderson as Socrates, Bob Peck as Nicias)...

What Is Value? What Is Money? (Video)

What Is Value? What Is Money? (Video) | phillosophy makes my mind go round | Scoop.it

We have always had this tension of understanding the world, at small spatial scales or individual scales, and large macro scales. In the past when we looked at macro scales, at least when it comes to many social phenomena, we aggregated everything. Our idea of macro is, by an accident of history, a synonym of aggregate, a mass in which everything is added up and in which individuality is lost. What data at high spatial resolution, temporal resolution and typological resolution is allowing us to do, is to see the big picture without losing the individuality inside it...
