Collective passion, consumed by the aims of wealth and power. A brief analysis of Germinal

November 27, 2011 Leave a comment

The intellectual it’s an bidimensional character, that only exists and subsist as such if (and only if) it’s invested by an specific authority, conferred by an autonomous intellectual world (that is to say, independent from the religious, political and economic powers) whose specific laws he respects, and if(and only if) involves that specific authority in political struggles. (Pierre Bordieu, “Pour un corporatisme de l’universel”).

Zola carried out this definition. Above all, his novels stand on the necessity of reflecting the society with any reserve, and his revolutionary attitude of involving so much on literature as in the social reality, made him become on an example of a committed writer. Read more…

La red y la inteligencia colectiva: ¿Utopía o realidad?

November 27, 2011 Leave a comment

Podemos afirmar con Pierre Lévy que si deseamos tener algún futuro, la clave consiste en coordinar nuestras actuaciones (políticas, económicas, científicas) a escala mundial, basándonos en decisiones conjuntas, en el sentido común, el respeto mutuo. Si las nuevas tecnologías nos ayudan en el proceso facilitando el desarrollo de la inteligencia colectiva, bienvenidas sean.

La web del futuro expresará la inteligencia colectiva de una humanidad mundializada e interconectada a traves del ciberespacio”  (Pierre Lévy,2003) Read more…

The Hellacopters and their web communication strategy

The Hellacopters, a successful Swedish rock band from the nineties, are active in social networks and microblogging (Twitter, Facebook, Myspace… ) Along their not-too-long career they have become one of the most successful bands in the international hard rock sphere, even though they come from a non-English-speaking country. Due to the popularity they have earned they like to be constantly in touch with their fans.

They seem to folow Seth Godin, a bestselling author, entrepreneur and agent of change in music industry

“The music business is changing and successful artists have to build a tribe, and this is done through engagement and personal interaction. More and more artists are taking over the business part of the profession and handling their own marketing and communications.”

Logikaren beharra mundu akabatu honetan!

Chaim Perelman eta Olbrechts-Tyteca egungo pentsamendu filosofikoaren barnean sailkatuta dagoen korronte berritzailearen ikasketetan parte hartzaile ospetsuak dira. Gaur egun ezaguna den Argumentazioaren Teoriaren sortzaileak dira. Teoria honek, hizkuntzaren izaera ulertzen du izaera sinetsarazle gisa, hau da, informazioaren hartzailea igorlearen ikuspuntutik eramateko diseinatua. Argudiozko kontzepzio hori erretorika deritzonaren erdigunean kokatu izan da beti baina Chaim Perelman eta Olbrechts-Tytecaren lanak argitaratuak izan ondoren, argumentazioaren ikasketak eraberritu ziren eta erretorika berriaren barruan kokatu izan ziren XX. mendearen azken 50 urteetan. Erretorika berri honek diona da konbentzitzeko balio duela gehien bat hizkuntzak, solaskidearengan nolabaiteko eragina izateko.

La lógica es la forma más sencilla de contestar un examen sin haber estudiado… pero hasta de eso carecen muchos.(Sócrates)
