"une nouvelle voie de défense contre des bactéries comme l'agent de la tuberculose et le staphylocoque doré a été identifiée chez l'homme grâce à l'étude d'un petit ver plat aquatique, le planaire. cette découverte a été réalisée par des chercheurs de l'unité de recherche sur les maladies infectieuses et tropicales émergentes (cnrs/ird/inserm/aix-marseille université), en collaboration avec le centre méditerranéen de médecine moléculaire (inserm/université nice sophia antipolis), et d'autres laboratoires français et étrangers1. leurs travaux, publiés dans la revue cell host and microbe le 10 septembre 2014, soulignent l'importance d'étudier des organismes modèles alternatifs, et ouvrent la voie vers de nouveaux traitements contre les infections bactériennes."

Autopoiesis and Cognition

Autopoiesis and Cognition | PLASTICITIES  « Between matter and form, experience and consciousness, the active plasticity of the world » | Scoop.it

Maturana and Varela's classic Autopoiesis and Cognition is freely available here (H/T to Paul Loader).

What makes a living system a living system? What kind of biological phenomenon is the phenomenon of cognition? These two questions have been frequently considered, but, in this volume, the authors consider them as concrete biological questions.

I would relish it if synchronicity was proven to be a by product of quantum activity.  As a psych tested logic fiend I have never been able to shake the sense that there are links beneath the surface of days that peek through to shock or delight every now and then.

Circumambulating the Alchemical Mysterium

Circumambulating the Alchemical Mysterium | PLASTICITIES  « Between matter and form, experience and consciousness, the active plasticity of the world » | Scoop.it

A L C H E M Y  may be described, in the words of Baudelaire, as a process of ‘distilling the eternal from the transient’. [1] As the art of transmutation par excellence, the classical applications of alchemy have always been twofold: chrysopoeia and apotheosis (gold-making and god-making)—the perfection of metals and mortals. In seeking to turn ‘poison into wine’, alchemy, like tantra, engages material existence—often at its most dissolute or corruptible—in order to transform it into a vehicle of liberation. Like theurgy, it seeks not only personal liberation—the redemption of the soul from the cycles of generation and corruption—but also the liberation (or perfection) of nature herself through participation in the cosmic demiurgy. In its highest sense, therefore, alchemy conforms to what Lurianic kabbalists would call tikkun, the restoration of the world.

Alchemy - the transformation of  what was unconscious lead into illuminated Gold is the essence and goal of Soul Making, the discovery of the eternal in the transitory, the imagination made manifest in Beauty.

Erel Shalit's curator insight, September 4, 5:46 AM

The author discusses the interesting etymology, such as Egyptian, of alchemy. However, there is also, as raised by Gershom Scholem, a possible Hebrew origin (see Enemy, Cripple, Beggar, p. 202f.).

Ecopsychology 101: James Hillman and the pain of community loss

Ecopsychology 101: James Hillman and the pain of community loss | PLASTICITIES  « Between matter and form, experience and consciousness, the active plasticity of the world » | Scoop.it

Ecopsychology, as propounded by James Hillman, a therapist based in northeast Connecticut, seeks to redefine the goals of psychology by paying heed to the health of one's environment just as one would the pathology of one's family. "Psychology, so dedicated to awakening human consciousness, needs to wake itself up to one of the most ancient human truths: we cannot be studied or cured apart from the planet."

 

"When a farm is subdeveloped, acres of trees go down or there's an oil spill in town, you feel it deeply and it goes on in you for so long, every time you walk past that place," said Hillman, who has successfully fought road extensions and subdevelopments in his town. "That never comes into consciousness. It is never talked about on the community level. People all know this inside their bodies. That's the horror. It hurts. When I see old healthy trees go down it hurts."

Au cours des vingt dernières années, les cultures populaires ont intégré le champ des recherches académiques, d’abord par le biais des sciences sociales et des cultural studies, puis, plus récemment, en faisant l’objet d’analyses philosophiques – qu’il s’agisse du cinéma, des séries télévisées ou encore de la bande dessinée . Pourtant, dans cette rencontre entre philosophie et cultures populaires, il semble que quelques objets soient restés à l’écart, parmi lesquels figure la musique . Si un champ d’études – les popular music studies – s’est développé autour des musiques populaires , la philosophie n’y fait son apparition que de manière ponctuelle, laissant la plupart du temps la place aux sciences sociales.
