OKFN Meet-ups are friendly and informal evenings for people to get together to share and debate all areas of openness. Depending on the number of people on a given evening, we have presentations and/or round-table discussions about Open Knowledge and Open Data – from politics and philosophy to the practicalities of theory and practice. We have had two previous events (see here for the ‘launch’ write-up and here for the invitation to the second instalment); this time we were kindly hosted by the Informatics Forum, and the weather stayed fine enough to explore the roof terrace (complete with vegetable garden, gizmos to record wind-speed and weather, a view across the city to Arthur’s Seat and even a blue moon).

Miss the The Buddhist Geeks Conference 2012? Watch videos online | POLITICAL PHILOSOPHY | Scoop.it

The Buddhist Geeks Conference considers the emerging new faces of Buddhism in our modern, technologically-rich, hyper-connected society. The forward-thinking meeting brings together leaders in the fields of Buddhism, science, philosophy, education, business, politics, activism, and the arts. Among this year's speakers were Lama Surya Das ("The Future of American Buddhism, Which is Now"), Willhoughby Britton ("The Promises and Perils of Contemplative Neuroscience"), and Stephen Batchelor ("Buddhism and the Art of Imagining"). If you weren't able to make it to Boulder last week for the meeting, you can still watch all the videos online for free.

What is the Meaning of Philosophy for Politics?

Santiago Zabala: While intellectuals, regardless of their ideological position, believe that political actions demand nonpolitical (that is, philosophical) foundations, they will continue to express a desire for the philosophical authorities these principles depend upon.

Less Than Nothing: Žižek's Theory of Everything | GlobalComment

Less Than Nothing: Žižek's Theory of Everything | GlobalComment | POLITICAL PHILOSOPHY | Scoop.it

First, the good news: the Slovenian philosopher Slavoj Žižek has finally written the definitive statement of his philosophy. Žižek’s output over the last two decades has been prodigious, encompassing dozens of books that cover topics ranging from film to philosophy, from politics to science. The sheer volume is bewildering, and even though I know his work well, I have always had difficulty answering people who want to read Žižek but aren’t sure where to start. Now that problem is finally solved. If someone is really serious about understanding Žižek’s thought as a whole and seeing how the various parts fit together, there is only one possible answer.

A nation that mocks philosophy is a nation content to remain “imprisoned in its prejudices”. Where is the minister who will look us in the eye and tell us that?

Utopias - ABC Radio National (Australian Broadcasting Corporation)

Utopias - ABC Radio National (Australian Broadcasting Corporation) | POLITICAL PHILOSOPHY | Scoop.it

In 1516 Sir Thomas More gave name to an idea that through the millennia has never been far from the surface of human affairs. Visions of Utopia – the perfect society – permeate literature, religion, philosophy and even politics. More than the pursuit of individual bliss, notions of utopia propel collectivist ideals of social paradise; a place in which all people can find true fulfilment and harmony. Yet one’s heavenly vision can be another’s hell. Join us for a deep exploration of perfect worlds, those in the mind, those attempted, and those yet to come.

Secrets in Plain Sight

Secrets In Plain Sight is an awe inspiring exploration of great art, architecture, and urban design which skillfully unveils an unlikely intersection of geometry, politics, numerical philosophy, religious mysticism, new physics, music, astronomy, and world history.Exploring key monuments and their positions in Egypt, Stonehenge, Jerusalem, Rome, Paris, London, Edinburgh, Washington DC, New York, and San Francisco brings to light a secret obsession shared by pharaohs, philosophers and kings; templars and freemasons; great artists and architects; popes and presidents, spanning the whole of recorded history up to the present time.

Donald Clark Plan B: Blog marathon: 50 blogs on learning theorists over next 50 days

Donald Clark Plan B: Blog marathon: 50 blogs on learning theorists over next 50 days | POLITICAL PHILOSOPHY | Scoop.it

Why no heroes?
Over the next 50 days I plan to blog 50 separate pieces on learning theorists. Despite education and training’s central role in society, its intellectuals are not well known. Few can name more than a handful of candidates for the Hall of Fame. Unlike sport, politics, philosophy, literature, music, painting, film, business or science, learning practitioners have a sketchy idea of the contributions and theories of their intellectual leaders.
