The state of philosophy : an invitation to a reading in three parts of Stanley Cavell's The claim of reason by Richard Fleming ( Book )
2 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 171 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The State of Philosophy is the first book-length text on Stanley Cavell's The Claim of Reason. It demonstrates the developed line of argument in The Claim of Reason and uncovers the unity of its presentation. In contrast to many current writings on Cavell, The State of Philosophy shows the necessity and value of reading The Claim of Reason as a whole rather than in isolated bits or parts. Richard Fleming develops the general outlines and identifies the organizing concepts of the work, thereby producing a context for fruitful rereading or first whole reading of the text. In his text, Fleming promotes a care and concern for Stanley Cavell's style of philosophizing, with the desire that Cavell's interpretation of the world, others, and ourselves become a part of the ongoing philosophical conversation. He shows that Cavell's writing style, which is so difficult for many, and his frequent use of indirect modes of presentation are a necessary ingredient of his ordinary language method and his quest for self-knowledge. Fleming does not shy away from questions about The Claim of Reason, and his book is populated with numerous voices that produce critical and continual reflection on what Cavell says and why he says it. The unique endnotes of the text, whether read in conjunction with Fleming's discussion or in isolation, present different voices and perspectives on Cavell's writings and produce a provocative encounter with The Claim of Reason and its secondary literature. The State of Philosophy, like Cavell's own works, is a text that will appeal to scholars from disciplines beyond philosophy. Literary theorists and critics will be engaged by the discussions of the relationships between philosophy and literature. Humanists will find the questions about the nature of human beings and their lives with others inviting. The extensive discussions of Wittgenstein's vision of language will provoke linguists and those with interest in the nature of language, while the concerns with autobiography and confession will engage those who study romantic literature and theology. Fleming's artistic quotations and musical metaphors open Cavell's text to those who work in the arts. By carefully presenting the argument of The Claim of Reason and attending to its modes of expression and many voices, Fleming demonstrates Cavell's unique interest in skepticism and the traditional struggles it has produced for philosophical work. The State of Philosophy helps the reader understand the general philosophical conclusion of The Claim of Reason and shows how Cavell has taken a "step beyond" Wittgenstein and given (especially Anglo-American) philosophy new direction

Meredith Monk inner voice ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Meredith Monk is a composer, singer, director, choreographer and creator of new opera, music theater, films and installations. She has alternately been proclaimed as a 'magician of the voice' and 'one of America's coolest composers.' During a career that spans more than 40 years, Monk has been acclaimed by audiences and critics as a major creative force in the performing arts. In the film Inner Voice, we follow Monk during the process of making her latest piece, Songs of Ascension, at the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis and at Ann Hamilton's Tower in California. Together with her Vocal Ensemble, we also follow her on a concert tour of Italy. Impermanence is a leading subject matter evolving in the documentary. We observe how Monk's productions are shaped, beginning with her initial work in solitude continuing on to the rehearsal process where she further develops her musical and choreographic forms with her Ensemble members. In Monk's work, this is an ongoing process. Even at the performance stage, Monk continues to transform the work by striving for a balance between discipline and freedom; and an openness to change. Inner Voice sets out to locate the motivation and source of Monk's creative force. There are no ready made answers."--Container

Lean sigma methods and tools for service organizations the story of a cruise line transformation by Jaideep Motwani ( )
1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
Every business aspires to be competitive and profitable in their markets. To do this, an organization needs to offer customers value propositions, whether it is manifest in the product they produce or in the service they provide. This in turn will create customer loyalty and growth. There are a number of organizational philosophies and strategies used by businesses to help accomplish this goal, among which are the concepts of Six-Sigma and Lean. Both are widely recognized and implemented, and both have been successful in improving value propositions of a variety of organizations, mostly in manufacturing concerns. Lean Sigma Methods and Tools for Service Organizations proposes to integrate the best practices from each of these philosophies and apply them to a customer-focused organization--a cruise ship--whose overriding mission is to deliver superior service to its customers. The authors demonstrate in this book how key components of both Six-Sigma and Lean, such as identifying and removing defects, elimination of waste, metrics, speed of delivery, and the seamless integration of these concepts and practices throughout the operation, serve to enhance the kind of value propositions that customers recognize and which allows the organization to be successful
