Philosophy of Science (journal) | Wikipedia audio article
 
00:54
This is an audio version of the Wikipedia Article: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Philosophy_of_Science_(journal) Listening is a more natural way of learning, when compared to reading. Written language only began at around 3200 BC, but spoken language has existed long ago. Learning by listening is a great way to: - increases imagination and understanding - improves your listening skills - improves your own spoken accent - learn while on the move - reduce eye strain Now learn the vast amount of general knowledge available on Wikipedia through audio (audio article). You could even learn subconsciously by playing the audio while you are sleeping! If you are planning to listen a lot, you could try using a bone conduction headphone, or a standard speaker instead of an earphone.

Academics expose corruption in Grievance Studies
 
06:35
The first video revealing the behind-the-scenes story of how a trio of concerned left-wing academics (James Lindsay, Peter Boghossian and Helen Pluckrose) published seven intentionally absurd papers in leading scholarly journals in what has become known as 'The Grievance Studies Affair'. I followed Pete, Jim and Helen for almost a year before the project was revealed with this video and an article in the Wall Street Journal. This series is associated with a feature-length documentary I'm working on. My plan is to play around with some of the footage I gather and upload it here to gauge interest and have a creative outlet while I learn about the complicated subject matter. You can follow the story here: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLLHyNSlsz449SOhzpo7ClMEKe9WkXt5GO My usual sources of film funding are blocked off to me because of the sensitive subject matter and my slow approach.

What is JOURNAL CLUB? What does JOURNAL CLUB mean? JOURNAL CLUB meaning & explanation
 
03:21
What is JOURNAL CLUB? What does JOURNAL CLUB mean? JOURNAL CLUB meaning - JOURNAL CLUB definition - JOURNAL CLUB explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. A journal club is a group of individuals who meet regularly to critically evaluate recent articles in the academic literature, generally of some branch of science or philosophy. Journal clubs are usually organized around a defined subject in basic or applied research. For example, the application of evidence-based medicine to some area of medical practice can be facilitated by a journal club. Typically, each participant can voice their view relating to several questions such as the appropriateness of the research design, the statistics employed, the appropriateness of the controls that were used, etc. There might be an attempt to synthesize together the results of several papers, even if some of these results might first appear to contradict each other. Even if the results of the study are seen as valid, there might be a discussion of how useful the results are and if these results might lead to new research or to new applications. Journal clubs are sometimes used in the education of graduate or professional students. These help make the student(s) become more familiar with the advanced literature in their new field of study. In addition, these journal clubs help improve the students' skills of understanding and debating current topics of active interest in their field. This type of journal club may sometimes be taken for credit. Research laboratories may also organize journal clubs for all researchers in the lab to help them keep up with the literature produced by others who work in their field. Journal clubs continue to adapt to new technology and methods of communication. Recently journal clubs have begun to take advantage of Twitter allowing geographically diverse groups to participate in a single discussion. The first Twitter Journal club was an Allergy Journal Club run by Dr. Ves Dimoz in 2008. They used Twitter to document the discussion of coverage of a traditional in-person Journal club. This journal club established the use of hashtags to organize journal club comments. The earliest references to a journal club was found in a book of memoirs and letters by the late Sir James Paget, a British surgeon, who describes a group at St. Bartholomew's Hospital in London in the mid-19th century as "a kind of club ... a small room over a baker's shop near the Hospital-gate where we could sit and read the journals." Sir William Osler established the first formalized journal club at McGill University in Montreal in 1875. The original purpose of Osler's journal club was "for the purchase and distribution of periodicals to which he could ill afford to subscribe." Tinsley Harrison, the famous creator of Harrison's Principles of Internal Medicine hosted a journal club at his house twice a month where one member of the group would present a research paper and the others would criticize it.

Hype In Science: How Can Respectable Journals Publish Such C**p?
 
06:40:12
Saturday, December 7, 2013 Dr. Rosie Redfield, Dr. Ford Doolittle, Dr. Eva Boon, Dr. Florian Maderspacher, Dr. T. Jock Murray, Dr. Sarah Richardson University of King's College Halifax, NS Just recently, a special issue of the premier journal Science focused on "pressure and predators" in the communication of scientific results. A similar exposé appeared in The Economist. The peer review system, which is supposed to make science uniquely trustworthy, is collapsing under it own weight. Rogue journals and dubious scientific conferences blur the boundaries between respectable and sensational. The reluctance of researchers to submit -- and of journals to publish -- negative results or serious disciplinary critiques fosters a falsely progressive view in many disciplines. Papers presented as "breakthroughs" in areas deemed to be of "wide general interest" get top priority, are picked up by the popular press and find popular acceptance or notoriety in so far as they complement or conflict with the agendas of special interests. It is good that science engages the public, but some of the most publicity-attracting breakthroughs reported in the last few years by top journals such as Science, Nature or the Proceedings of the National Academy have turned out to be over-hyped, misrepresented or false. No institution or publication seems to be immune. "The "Arseniclife" Debacle." Rosie Redfield, Zoology, UBC. "Is "junk" bunk"? Panadaptationism and Functional Genomics." Ford Doolittle, Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, Dalhousie. "Conflating Correlation and Causation in Microbiomics." Eva Boon, Biology, Dalhousie. "Epigenetics and the New Lysenkoism."

What is SCIENTOMETRICS? What does SCIENTOMETRICS mean? SCIENTOMETRICS meaning & explanation

What is SCIENTOMETRICS? What does SCIENTOMETRICS mean? SCIENTOMETRICS meaning - SCIENTOMETRICS definition - SCIENTOMETRICS explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. SUBSCRIBE to our Google Earth flights channel - https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC6UuCPh7GrXznZi0Hz2YQnQ Scientometrics is the study of measuring and analysing science, technology and innovation. Major research issues include the measurement of impact, reference sets of articles to investigate the impact of journals and institutes, understanding of scientific citations, mapping scientific fields and the production of indicators for use in policy and management contexts. In practice there is a significant overlap between scientometrics and other scientific fields such as bibliometrics, information systems, information science and science of science policy. Modern scientometrics is mostly based on the work of Derek J. de Solla Price and Eugene Garfield. The latter created the Science Citation Index and founded the Institute for Scientific Information which is heavily used for scientometric analysis. A dedicated academic journal, Scientometrics, was established in 1978. The industrialization of science increased the quantity of publications and research outcomes and the rise of the computers allowed effective analysis of this data. While the sociology of science focused on the behavior of scientists, scientometrics focused on the analysis of publications. Accordingly, scientometrics is also referred to as the scientific and empirical study of science and its outcomes. Later, around the turn of the century, evaluation and ranking of scientists and institutions came more into the spotlights. Based on bibliometric analysis of scientific publications and citations, the Academic Ranking of World Universities ("Shanghai ranking") was first published in 2004 by the Shanghai Jiao Tong University. Impact factors became an important tool to choose between different journals and the rankings such as the Academic Ranking of World Universities and the Times Higher Education World University Rankings (THE-ranking) became a leading indicator for the status of universities. The h-index became an important indicator of the productivity and impact of the work of a scientist. However, alternative author-level indicators has been proposed (see for example). Around the same time, interest of governments in evaluating research for the purpose of assessing the impact of science funding increased. As the investments in scientific research were included as part of the U.S. American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA), a major economic stimulus package, programs like STAR METRICS were set up to assess if the positive impact on the economy would actually occur. Methods of research include qualitative, quantitative and computational approaches. The main foci of studies have been on institutional productivity comparisons, institutional research rankings, journal rankings establishing faculty productivity and tenure standards, assessing the influence of top scholarly articles, and developing profiles of top authors and institutions in terms of research performance One significant finding in the field is a principle of cost escalation to the effect that achieving further findings at a given level of importance grow exponentially more costly in the expenditure of effort and resources. However, new algorithmic methods in search, machine learning and data mining are showing that is not the case for many information retrieval and extraction-based problems. Related fields are the history of science and technology, philosophy of science and sociology of scientific knowledge. Journals in the field include Scientometrics, Journal of the American Society for Information Science and Technology, and Journal of Informetrics. The International Society for Scientometrics and Informetrics founded in 1993 is an association of professionals in the field.

Prof. Hans Halvorson - "DOES THE UNIVERSE NEED GOD?"
 
01:27:40
Twentieth century physical cosmology made "the universe" into a precise theoretical object, governed by the laws of the general theory of relativity. But one result of this theoretical consolidation is that "the universe" becomes autonomous: it is neither brought into existence by some supernatural being, nor does its continued existence require any external intervention. Indeed, physical cosmology has no need for the hypothesis of a Creator or Sustainer of the universe. Shouldn't we then conclude that the universe has no need for God? On the contrary, I argue that the absence of God from physical cosmology provides no evidence against the existence of a divine Creator. In fact, if the universe and its laws are the result of a free, creative act of God, then God is not constrained by natural laws, and God should not occur as the explanans in any scientific account of the universe. PROF. HANS HALVORSON is professor of philosophy at Princeton University. He has written extensively on the foundations of quantum physics, philosophy of science, and the relationship between science and theology, with articles appearing in the Journal of Mathematical Physics, Physical Review, The British Journal for Philosophy of Science, and The European Journal for Philosophy of Religion, among others. In 2008 he won a Mellon Foundation New Directions Fellowship, to pursue research in category theory and especially topos theory. Halvorson has received the Cushing Memorial Prize in the History and Philosophy of Physics (2004), Best Article of the Year by a Recent Ph.D. (Philosophy of Science Association, 2001), and Ten Best Philosophy Articles of the Year (The Philosopher's Annual, both 2001 and 2002).

“That’s just not feasible!” | Nicholas Southwood | TEDxFulbrightCanberra
 
14:19
We constantly reject ideas, no matter how desirable, for being “just not feasible. “A universal currency is just not feasible.” “Shark nets on all suburban beaches is just not feasible.” And so on. The “just not feasible” device is a powerful and valuable tool. But it is also a tool that is especially liable to being misused. There are serious and under-appreciated dangers associated with the way we form and deploy feasibility judgements. We often go wrong when we judge that certain ideas are not feasible. And even when we are right, we are often wrong to reject those ideas. 2003 Fulbright Postgraduate Scholar to Princeton University. Nicholas Southwood is an Associate Professor and ARC Future Fellow in the School of Philosophy at the Research School of Social Sciences, Australian National University.

John Beatty - Narrating Chance
 
01:17:56
Chance has a conflicted role in narratives. On the one hand, narratives rely on chance: What would be the point of a narrative if everything was clear from the beginning? On the other hand, one of the main purposes of a narrative is to eliminate chance as the story proceeds: What would be the point of a narrative if nothing was clear at the end? I want to avoid the resolution that that chance exists in a narrative only in order to be got rid of. To be sure, narratives reduce chance, but they make productive use of chance as well. They eliminate alternative possibilities, but in doing so they reset the field of alternative possibilities that can subsequently arise and be acted upon. Interestingly, natural selection makes use of chance in a similar way, and for this reason has been construed as “creative,” even as a “composer” or an “author.” No wonder narratives are such an appropriate medium for Darwinian evolutionary explanations. JOHN BEATTY is Professor of philosophy at the University of British Columbia. His research focuses on the theoretical foundations, methodology, and socio-political dimensions of genetics and evolutionary biology. His current research projects concern more specifically: 1) the distinction between “history” and “science,” and the respects in which evolutionary biology is as much like the former as it is like the latter, 2) changing views of contingency and necessity in the Darwinian Revolution, 3) the relationships between biology and “the state,” from the Manhattan Project to the Human Genome Project, and 4) issues concerning the nature of scientific “authority.” His articles have appeared in the Philosophy of Science, Annals of Science, Biology and Philosophy, Journal of Philosophy, and Episteme, to name just a few. He is the coauthor of The Empire of Chance: How Probability Changed Science and Everyday Life (Cambridge University Press)

Jeffrey Grupp is a Buddhist philosopher, a political philosopher, and a lecturer at Purdue University Calumet and Purdue University Northcentral, both of which are in Northwest Indiana. He is the author of Corporatism (published by Progressive press, which is also Webster Tarpley's publisher) and The Telescreen {not yet published). He has published twelve articles in academic philosophy journals (Metaphysica, Indian International Journal of Buddhist Studies, Disputatio, among others), and he is a regular guest on the Nutrimedical Report, which is Dr. Bill Deagle's radio show. Grupp is the former associate editor of the prestigious academic philosophy journal, PHILO (editor: Quentin Smith). Grupp is the originator of the mereological nihilist interpretation of quantum mechanics (published in Axiomathes in 2006), and he has written about issues to do with domination by global corporations around the world. He has two web sites: www.abstractatom.com, and www.corporatism.us. Grupp has said on national radio that his political views are entirely absent from his university teaching and his political philosophy and academic teaching do not ever mix because universities would not consider his political positions real or credible information. Grupp's academic work in mainstream philosophy (specifically metaphysics, Buddhism, and quantum mechanics) has been claimed by Quentin Smith to be original and rigorous.

Charles T. Wolfe | Materialism and artifice: natural history and the cultured brain | 12.02.2016
 
01:06:13
Materialism and artifice: natural history and the cultured brain Materialism – the doctrine that everything that is, is material – does not appear at first glance to be very friendly to la chose artistique, or more broadly, to the sphere of invention, fantasy and artifice. Materialist philosophers claim that everything real, is somehow material inasmuch as it belongs to the physical, ‘spacetime’ world of causes and effects, from microbes to volcanoes, from tables and chairs to paintings and love letters. In modern times (starting in the Enlightenment and reaching full velocity in the twentieth century) materialists have specifically been interested in the particular ‘region’ of minds and brains. That is, from a general metaphysical position on how we belong to the material universe, materialism focused on the particular case of how our minds would be material in the sense of being brains, i.e., how mental states are brain states. Aesthetic and moral theorists (including existentialists and phenomenologists) tended to react with horror to this thesis, since – in random order – it strips us of our free will; it is blind to the universe of values and emotions; it is similarly blind to the symbolic realm, to fictions and lies, and by extension to art. In this lecture Charles T. Wolfe returns first to an apparently quite different case, that of cabinets of natural history, to explore the interpenetration of materialism and artificiality that 20th-21st century ‘physicalism’ appears blind to. Natural history is the (immediately pre-Darwinian) project to understand Nature as a whole, including the place of humans in Nature. Dispositifs such as zoos, curiosity cabinets and their near-cousin, natural history cabinets were an integral part of this approach to Nature, which was closely connected to the materialist tendency of some ‘philosophes’ such as Diderot and the natural historian Buffon (the curator, so to speak, of the Jardin du Roi, today the Jardin des Plantes in Paris). In selected texts by Diderot, Charles T. Wolfe examines the interplay between materialism and the recognition of the irreducible nature of artifice, in order to arrive at a provisional definition of Diderot’s vision of Nature as “une femme qui aime à se travestir.” How can a materialist metaphysics in which the concept of Nature has a normative status, also ultimately consider it to be something necessarily artificial? Historically, the answer to this question involves the project of natural history. - Charles T. Wolfe is a Research Fellow in the Department of Philosophy and Moral Sciences and Sarton Centre for History of Science, Ghent University, and an associate member of the IHPST (CNRS-UMR 8590, Paris). He works primarily in history and philosophy of the early modern life sciences, with a particular interest in materialism and vitalism. He is the author of Materialism: A Historico-Philosophical Introduction (Springer, 2016), and has edited volumes including Monsters and Philosophy (2005), The Body as Object and Instrument of Knowledge (2010, with O. Gal), Vitalism and the scientific image in post-Enlightenment life-science (2013, with S. Normandin), Brain Theory. Essays in Critical Neurophilosophy (2014), Philosophy of Biology before Biology (w. C. Bognon-Kuss, in progress) along with articles in journals including Early Science and Medicine, History and Philosophy of the Life Sciences, Journal of the History of Biology, Multitudes, Perspectives on Science, Progress in Biophysics and Molecular Biology, Recherches sur Diderot et l’Encyclopédie, Science in Context, Studies in History and Philosophy of Biological and Biomedical Sciences and others. His current project is a monograph on the conceptual foundations of Enlightenment vitalism.

The Evolution of Religion by Daniel Dennett
 
01:26:00
SUBSCRIBE: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCgYY8--wnXavkJvtSNinUEw Religions have probably changed more in the last two centuries than they changed in the last two millennia, and perhaps they will change more in the next twenty years than they have in the last two centuries. Dennett discusses religions as intricately designed cultural survivors. He examines how and why their parts work together as they do and explores how we can respond thoughtfully to the challenges they currently suggest. Daniel C. Dennett, the author of Breaking the Spell (Viking, 2006), Freedom Evolves (Viking Penguin, 2003) and Darwin's Dangerous Idea (Simon &Schuster, 1995), is University Professor and Austin B. Fletcher Professor of Philosophy, and Co-Director of the Center for Cognitive Studies at Tufts University. He lives with his wife in North Andover, Massachusetts, and has a daughter, a son, and three grandchildren. He was born in Boston in 1942, the son of a historian by the same name, and received his B.A. in philosophy from Harvard in 1963. He then went to Oxford to work with Gilbert Ryle, under whose supervision he completed the D.Phil. in philosophy in 1965. He taught at U.C. Irvine from 1965 to 1971, when he moved to Tufts, where he has taught ever since, aside from periods visiting at Harvard, Pittsburgh, Oxford, and the École Normale Supérieure in Paris. His first book, Content and Consciousness, appeared in 1969, followed by Brainstorms (1978), Elbow Room (1984), The Intentional Stance (1987), Consciousness Explained (1991), Darwin's Dangerous Idea (1995), Kinds of Minds (1996), and Brainchildren: A Collection of Essays 1984-1996 (MIT Press and Penguin, 1998). Sweet Dreams: Philosophical Obstacles to a Science of Consciousness, was published in 2005 by MIT Press. He co-edited The Mind's I with Douglas Hofstadter in 1981. He is the author of over three hundred scholarly articles on various aspects on the mind, published in journals ranging from Artificial Intelligence and Behavioral and Brain Sciences to Poetics Today and the Journal of Aesthetics and Art Criticism. He gave the John Locke Lectures at Oxford in 1983, the Gavin David Young Lectures at Adelaide, Australia, in 1985, and the Tanner Lecture at Michigan in 1986, among many others. He has received two Guggenheim Fellowships, a Fulbright Fellowship, and a Fellowship at the Center for Advanced Studies in Behavioral Science. He was elected to the American Academy of Arts and Sciences in 1987. He was the Co-founder (in 1985) and Co-director of the Curricular Software Studio at Tufts, and has helped to design museum exhibits on computers for the Smithsonian Institution, the Museum of Science in Boston, and the Computer Museum in Boston.

THE BEST DAD IN THE GALAXY - https://amzn.to/2DlWeMl What is POLITICAL SCIENCE? What does POLITICAL SCIENCE mean? POLITICAL SCIENCE meaning - POLITICAL SCIENCE definition - POLITICAL SCIENCE explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. Political science is a social science discipline that deals with systems of government, and the analysis of political activity and political behavior. It deals extensively with the theory and practice of politics which is commonly thought of as determining of the distribution of power and resources. Political scientists "see themselves engaged in revealing the relationships underlying political events and conditions, and from these revelations they attempt to construct general principles about the way the world of politics works." Political science is related to and draws upon the fields of economics, law, sociology, history, philosophy, geography, psychology, and anthropology. Although it was codified in the 19th century, when the contemporary form of the academic social sciences was established, the study of political science has ancient roots that can be traced back to the works of Aristotle, Plato, and Chanakya which were written nearly 2,500 years ago. Political science is commonly divided into distinct sub-disciplines which together constitute the field: Comparative politics International political economy International relations Political theory Public administration Public law Political methodology Comparative politics is the science of comparison and teaching of different types of constitutions, political actors, legislature and associated fields, all of them from an intrastate perspective. International relations deals with the interaction between nation-states as well as intergovernmental and transnational organizations. Political theory is more concerned with contributions of various classical and contemporary thinkers and philosophers. Political science is methodologically diverse and appropriates many methods originating in social research. Approaches include positivism, interpretivism, rational choice theory, behavioralism, structuralism, post-structuralism, realism, institutionalism, and pluralism. Political science, as one of the social sciences, uses methods and techniques that relate to the kinds of inquiries sought: primary sources such as historical documents and official records, secondary sources such as scholarly journal articles, survey research, statistical analysis, case studies, experimental research and model building.

Panel: Quantum Theory and Free Will - Chris Fields, Henry Stapp & Donald Hoffman
 
01:05:07
Quantum theory incorporates two seemingly-contradictory ideas about free will. On the one hand, an observer can choose both the system to measure and the kind of measurement to make; given these choices, the theory predicts a probability distribution over the possible outcomes and nothing more. is is "quantum indeterminism." On the other hand, a system that no one is looking at evolves through time according the dynamics that are perfectly deterministic. No one is "looking at" the universe as a whole - all observers are inside the universe by definition - so the time evolution of the whole universe must be perfectly deterministic. This clash between indeterminism and determinism is sharpened by the existence of a strong theorem, the Conway-Kochen "free will theorem," that says that if human (or any other kind of) observers are assumed to have free will, everything else in the universe, even electrons, has to be assumed to have free will, too. Is this conflict real, or might it dissolve on further analysis? This panel will examine some of the strikingly different views advanced by physicists on this question, illuminating the concept and role of entanglement in the process." Dr. Chris Fields is an independent scientist interested in both the physics and the cognitive neuroscience underlying the human perception of objects as spatially and temporally bounded entities. His particular interests include quantum information theory and quantum computing on the one hand, and creative problem solving, early childhood development and autism-spectrum conditions on the other. His recent papers have appeared in the International Journal of Theoretical Physics, Information, International Journal of General Systems, Advances in Cognitive Psychology, Frontiers in Perception Science and Medical Hypotheses among others. He is currently editing a Research Topic titled “How humans recognize objects: Segmentation, categorization and individual identification” for Frontiers in Perception Science. Donald Hoffman is a cognitive scientist and author of more than 90 scientific papers and three books, including Visual Intelligence: How We Create What We See (W.W. Norton, 2000). He received his BA from UCLA in Quantitative Psychology and his Ph.D. from MIT in Computational Psychology. He joined the faculty of UC Irvine in 1983, where he is now a full professor in the departments of cognitive science, computer science and philosophy. He received a Distinguished Scientific Award of the American Psychological Association for early career research into visual perception, and the Troland Research Award of the US National Academy of Sciences for his research on the relationship of consciousness and the physical world. Henry Stapp received his Ph.D. in particle physics at the University of California, Berkeley, under the supervision of Nobel Laureates Emilio Segrè and Owen Chamberlain. Wolfgang Pauli visited Berkeley in the spring of 1958. He talked extensively with Stapp, and invited him to work with him in Zurich in the Fall. Stapp worked in Zurich with Pauli on fundamental problems until Pauli sudden unexpected death in December. In 1970 Werner Heisenberg invited Stapp to Munich, where the two conversed often on fundamental issues surrounding quantum mechanics. After returning to Berkeley wrote an influential article The Copenhagen Interpretation, published in the American Journal of Physics with Heisenberg’s comments appearing in an Appendix. Stapp has has made major contributions to analytic S-matrix theory, generalizations of Bell’s theorems, and understanding the quantum connection of mind to physical processes.

Epistemology, Ontology, and Axiology in Research
 
08:04
Epistemology, Ontology, and Axiology are terms in research that address underlying assumptions that shapes every research, theory, and methodology approach. Separately, they are branches of philosophy that deal with knowledge/knowing, what it means to be a human being, and values. Together, a richer understanding of these three terms will help you developed a more sophisticated reading of theory and research.
