    1. no material difference

      Or nothing but material difference (paper) between them ;)

      Like kmurphy1, I was thinking Ong would likely disagree on this matter, but Astell does make room for their differences as "talents which do not always meet." For all the functional differences (oral vs pen and paper, intangible vs tangible), does Astell see them both as means of communication and therefore only different in those functions?

    1. different countries and re-mote ages, wherein the speakers and writers had very different notions, tempers, customs, orna-ments, and figures of speech, &c., every one of which influenced the signification of their words

      Brings to mind Rickert's rhetorics and Siegert's cultural techniques

    1. StrongDefenseofrhetoricposthumousl

      Lanham says, "The Strong Defense assumes that truth is determined by social dramas, some more formal than others but all man-made. Rhetoric in such a world is not ornamental but determinative, essentially creative" (156). If that defense is not just restricted to "man-made" social dramas but cultural dramas, to dramas rooted in a particular historical and cultural context (joining Rickert's sense of rhetorics), then it can also be opened up to material forces beyond the human.

    1. Know ye that by “the world” is meant your unawareness of Him Who is your Maker, and your absorption in aught else but Him. The “life to come,” on the other hand, signifieth the things that give you a safe approach to God, the All-Glorious, the Incomparable.

      The next world isn't another world. It's a way of being in this world. Using this idea alone, no surviving memory or individuality is required after death.

    1. We have introduced a novel approach to time management using a device embodying characteristics of both an ambient display and a tangible user interface.

      Will be interesting to see the results of the field studies to better understand whether making time materially tangible fits the mental scheme for users. And whether their relationship with task/time management improves or causes new levels of friction.

    1. material transfer agreement (MTA)

      Mengenai MTA ini sempat lolos dari perhatian saya saat menyusun RDMP (research data management plan) untuk universitas saya. Saat saya cari info dengan kata kunci "regulasi material transfer agreement", saya hanya mendapatkan satu regulasi dari Kementerian Pertanian. Ini mestinya ada dalam Permen tentang Penelitian.

    2. MTA

      Ok tentang MTA ini, saya perlu meralat pernyataan sebelumnya yang hanya menemukan regulasi MTA dari Kementan. Hasil pencarian di sini memunculkan sumber informasi tentang MTA yang lebih lengkap dari LIPI. Kemudian, bagian mana dari regulasi formal (yang ada dalam taksonomi regulasi Indonesia) yang mengarah ke dokumen MTA LIPI ini?

    1. "it's not about the technology" because "the technology is neutral."

      Right. Technology isn’t neutral. Nor is it good or bad. It’s diverse and it’s part of a broader context. Can get that some educators saying that it’s not about technology may have a skewed view of technology. But, on its own, this first part can also lead to an important point about our goals. It’s about something else. But, of course, there are some people who use the “bah, the technology doesn’t matter as long as we can do what we do” line to evade discussion. Might be a sign that the context isn’t right for deep discussion, maybe because educators have deeper fears.

    1. Finally, and perhaps most importantly, online reading may require even greater amounts of higher-level thinking than offline reading. In a context in which anyone may publish anything, higher-level thinking skills such as critical evaluation of source material become especially important online.

      Yes this is a big one. Even otherwise intelligent adults take online writing at face value without reading laterally.

    1. face the flushed, feverish, quaky, shaky, angry, scared, hurt, shocked, disappointed, alarmed, outraged, even terrified conditio

      The abstract comes up against the material, here, and is found wanting. This is a starkly physical concern, in comparison to the very lofty discussions of emotions and abstract narratives. "This life or none" is a very real danger, and the method above does not seem quite so urgent.

    2. have to start searching that person's history until we begin to understand what led him or her to speak just so. Sometimes we do less well: if the history isn't there for us, we don't learn it, but instead make it up to suit ourselves.

      This is an excellent view of the relationship with Others who do not fit the schema we hold. We can probably relate this back to embodiment and how a disagreement of ideas turns into a disagreement between (and because of) bodies, but I'm going to wait and see where Corder goes with this before wandering down that road . . .

      Later update: I like his very embodied, lengthy chain of descriptions (flushed, feverish, quaky, shakey" etc.) to the heart of competing narratives.

    1. The first step in testing claims of conspiracy is to establish precisely what is being claimed

      "Accordingly, in all tongues, perhaps without exception, the ordinary terms, which are considered as literally expressive of the latter [material subjects], are also used promiscuously to denote the former [spiritual subjects]." - Campbell

    1. Part V. Connexion of Place

      This section is jumping out at me this time around. Keep it mind later on when we turn to discuss the elements of the rhetorical situation. Campbell opens up for discussing the material dimensions of rhetoric: not simply rhetoric as the discursive activity of humans, but as an emergent aspect of human and nonhuman relations. Also, recall here Rickert on the role of the caves themselves in the making of cave art.

    1. One of those values is the principle of material honesty. One material should not be used as a substitute for another. Otherwise the end result is deceptive.

      Great principle!

      Should be applied to science as well: scientific publication is meant to spread ideas and findings, not to evaluate researchers!

    1. the material and the formal

      Artistic practice here looks like something that differentiates itself from a "given" cognitive state of affairs. I'm curious about the importance of such framework...

      So, apparently 'form' needs 'background.' But, can we have a 'figure-figure' relationship?

    1. hackers forming groups and follow this path (el8, h0n0, Zero for 0wned, project m4yh3m, etc).
    2. Years later, the lottery winners were interviewed again, this time the results were quite surprising. As it turns out, their happiness level had dropped significantly to levels so low that most of the winners where more unhappy now than before winning the lottery. In contrast, the happiness of the group of paraplegics was very high, equal to or higher than before the accident.

      This reminds me of Matthew 19:30, and of the New Testament in general, with cripples ending up in a better position (which is sometimes seen allegorically).

    1. Creating simulations, however, requires expert-level skills in interaction design, graphics, database functionality, and programming - not to mention instructional design, content expertise, and imagination.

      It all depends on your expectations. Lone teachers (and lone students!) can create very useful simulations. They learn a whole lot in the process. Not sure why this “everything needs to be of professional quality and therefore requires an expensive/expansive team of professionals” mentality comes from. Makes it sound like they have something to sell, to be honest.

    1. As a genius of construction man raises himself far above the bee in the following way: whereas the bee builds with wax that he gathers from nature, man builds with the far more delicate conceptual material which he first has to manufacture from himself. In this he is greatly to be admired, but not on account of his drive for truth or for pure knowledge of things.

    1. Cicero, too, in one passage, calls the material of oratory the topics which are submitted to it for discussion, but supposes that particular topics only are submitted to it.
