The Access To The Real Is Dependent On Language

. .   How to disappear up your own arse . .   The access to the real is dependent on language .     Language is not the real     The access to the real is dependent on the unreal .   The access to the real is blocked by language   The object of philosophy is not the real but language. .   Although this will cause difficulties for idealist philosophy in its attempt to ground knowledge in ideal forms – and most directly phenomenology – the most obvious casualty of this perspective is materialism. What begins as a critique of phenomenology – and specifically of Husserl – thus widens out into a much more general critique of materialism. .   Realism .   Watt in Flat Footed: . It is, I think, very easy to see why the term “realism” arouses no excitement in philosophical circles. Apart from many specialized historical usages which need not concern us here, it denotes, very simply, the acceptance of three general notions: .   that the world and the people outside us are real;   that language enables us to communicate about them to others;   and that truth about them is verified through the assent of other observers. . This is the basic expression of “common sense realism” and it fails to the extent that our experience does not necessarily give rise to the truth. We might assume, for intance, that the earth is flat and that the sun moves around the earth on the basis of such “common sense realism”.   However, these assumptions are also built into the scientific as opposed to philosophical understanding of reality. Indeed, after a period in which philosophy was institutionally and constituionally associated with religion, the rise of science – after, let us say, Galileo – substantially modified the conception of what it was to know something and of the type of individual that could do this knowing. Henceforward, whilst philosophy might be idealist or materialist, science was resolutely materialist at least in its assumption that knowledge must be tested against experience.   The crucial reorganisation comes with the development of the mathematical sciences and the consideration of their relation to the real. In this reorganisation, the relation between the subject and the object comes to be considered as a function of the calculation. .   Williams and Keywords .   Before turning to Watt’s study, something of the nature of realism as discussed by Raymond Williams – a critic...

Pulmonary Tuberculosis

. . . . . . . . Pulmonary Tuberculosis . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . I INTRODUCTION . A.Background of the Study     Pulmonary tuberculosis, a chronic sub-acute or acute respiratory disease commonly affecting the lungs characterized by the formation of tubercles in the tissues which tend to undergo cessation, necrosis and calcification. It is also known as poor man’s disease or consumption disease. The causative agent in this disease is Mycobacterium Tuberculosis, a rod shaped bacteria. The disease is transmitted by deliberate inoculation of microorganisms by droplet. This disease is transmitted to other people through the inhalation of organisms directly into the lungs from contaminated air. According to the department of Health (DOH) PTB is the 6th cause of mortality and morbidity in the Philippines as of 2007. (Navales, Handbook of Common Communicable and Infectious disease revised edition, pages 280-281.)   This disease is can be acquired easily by person being in contact with an infected one, when you are living in a crowded area like the squatter’s area and when you have poor nutrition. It is commonly present in third world or developing countries like the Philippines.   In 2004, mortality and morbidity statistics included 14.6 million chronic active cases, 8.9 million new cases, and 1.6 million deaths, mostly in developing countries. In addition, a rising number of people in the developed world are contracting tuberculosis because their immune systems are compromised by immunosuppressive drugs, substance abuse, or AIDS. The distribution of tuberculosis is not uniform across the globe with about 80% of the population in many Asian and African countries testing positive in tuberculin tests, while only 5-10% of the US population testing positive. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pulmonary_tuberculosis) . . . B.Rationale for Choosing the Case   The researchers decided to choose this case because they wanted to acquire more knowledge about Pulmonary Tuberculosis. They wanted to use the knowledge that they have acquired in promoting awareness to the people especially to the poor that they should seek for medical care in order to prevent the development and progression of PTB. The researchers also wanted to focus on preventive measures. PTB can cause Tuberculosis meningitis, a very rare and fatal disease and the researchers would not want that to happen, so they will focus more on information campaign as part of primary prevention of health. Presently our...

Palawan Is A Biodiversity Hotspot In The Philippines.

Executive Summary . Palawan is a biodiversity hotspot in the Philippines: its abundant forest and rich cultural heritage are the main reasons for exempting it from mining. Few places on earth can match the distinction of the province, home to seven protected areas, a declared “Game Refuge and Bird Sanctuary” since 1967, and a “Mangrove Reserve” since 1981. UNESCO declared the whole Province a Man and Biosphere Reserve in 1990. Included are two World Heritage Sites: The Tubbataha Reef Marine Park and the Puerto Princesa Subterranean River National Park. . The expansive reserves of metal ores particularly nickel and chromite, which lay underneath old growth forests, attracts mining investments into the province. The 354 approved mining applications all over Palawan constitute a major threat to Palawan with extensive remaining forest cover and related biodiversity. . Palaweños fears that damage to Palawan’s biodiversity will become irreparable if mining increases the threat to the ecosystem and to a booming eco-tourism industry of the province. Many feel that the costs of mining far outweigh its benefits. . Dr. Gerry Ortega, an environmental advocate and broadcast journalist who was very vocal against mining in Palawan was killed on January 24, 2011 after his morning radio broadcast. He has been receiving death threats due to his strong opposition to mining and exposed bribery in the government in endorsing of mining through his radio program “Ramatak” over DWAR, a local affiliate of Radyo Mo nationwide. . The Philippines has suffered many disastrous environmental impacts from mining including the Marinduque/Boac River mining disaster in 1996, recurrent pollution problems caused by the Atlas mine in Toledo City, Cebu, and the Rapu-rapu mine tailings spills in Albay in 2005 were among the many tragedies which offer lessons of the enormous human and environmental costs brought by mining. . These factors should require the Philippine government to exercise extreme caution in authorizing mining operations in Palawan. Social awareness of this problem is of widespread and government actions to prevent damage to the environment have led to the enactment of laws such as the Republic Act No. 7611 otherwise known as the Strategic Environment Plan for Palawan Act or SEP Law directed towards the prevention of activities and events that may adversely affect the environmental sustainability of the province. A resolution passed in November 2008 by the Provincial Board secures a 25-year moratorium on small-scale mining in Palawan. However, this is...
