Being nude : the skin of images by Federico Ferrari( Book )

4 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 156 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"What does it mean to be nude? What does the nude do? In a series of constantly surprising reflections, Jean-Luc Nancy and Federico Ferrari encounter the nude as an opportunity for thinking in a way that is stripped bare of all received meanings and preconceived forms. In the course of engagements with twenty-six separate images, the authors show how the nudes produced by painters and photographers expose this bareness of thought and leave us naked on the verge of a sense that is always nascent, always fleeting, on the surface of the skin, on the surface of the image. While the nude is a symbol of truth in philosophy and art alike, what the nude definitively and uniquely reveals is unclear. In Being Nude: The Skin of Images, the authors argue that the nude is always presented as both vulnerable in its exposure and shy of conceptualization, giving a sense of the ultimate ineffability of the meaning of being. Although the nude represents the revealed nature of truth, nude figures hold a part of themselves back, keeping in reserve the reality of their history, parts of their present selves, and also their future possibilities for change, development, and demise. Skin is itself a type of clothing, and stripping away exterior layers of fabric does not necessarily lead to grasping the truth. In this way, the difference between being clothed and being nude is diminished. The images that inspire the authors to contemplate the nudity of being show many ways in which one can and cannot be nude, and many ways of being in relation to oneself and to others, clothed and unclothed"--

Die Haut der Bilder by Federico Ferrari( Book )

5 editions published between 2003 and 2006 in Italian and German and held by 55 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ein spielerisches ABC der 26 Bilder - Gemälde, Zeichnungen und Photographien -, willkürlich ausgewählt und im Wechselspiel kommentiert, entsprechend den persönlichen Vorlieben und Interessen der beiden Autoren.>Unser Interesse an der Nacktheit ist eines der allgemeinsten von der Welt. Man könnte sagen, dass anderswo, ja fast überall, die Nacktheit mit der Erotik und/oder dem Heiligen zu tun hat, während das abendländische Nackte sich selbst zu exponieren scheint, in sich ein Interesse darbietet, das losgelöst ist von Erkenntnis- und Lustabsichten. Obgleich es sich immer gerade auf eine Wahrheit hin auszurichten scheint oder auf die Sinnesfreude, bleibt das Nackte gleichsam in der Schwebe, im Abseits, undefinierbar. Gewiss, unausbleiblich erweckt dieses Nackte Neugier und Begehren, doch dabei bleibt es nie. Neugier und Begehren sind derart offensichtlich, dass sofort ebenso offensichtlich wird, dass der Akt anderes anzeigt: er zeigt Nichts an, das heisst, er will bloss nackt sein.>

A l'occasion du centenaire de la naissance de l'artiste, le musée Picasso organise du 17 mai au 7 septembre 2014, une exposition dédiée au nu et à la figure dans l'oeuvre de Nicolas de Staël. A partir de 1951 en effet, et jusqu'à sa disparition le 16 mars 1955, Staël renoue dans sa production avec les grands thèmes de la peinture, et en particulier avec celui du nu et de la figure féminine - que l'exposition d'Antibes illustrera en rassemblant, pour la première fois, un ensemble de peintures et de dessins souvent inédits qui lui sont consacrés. 0Le catalogue rassemble des contributions de Maryline Desbiolles, Federico Ferrari, Federico Nicolao et Jean-Louis Andral qui apportent un nouvel éclairage sur cette question de l'abstraction et/ou de la figuration dans l'oeuvre de Nicolas de Staël.0

Curare i gay? : oltre l'ideologia riparativa dell'omosessualità by Paolo Rigliano( Book )

5 editions published in 2012 in Italian and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Questo volume propone una visione nuova dell'affettività omosessuale, indagandone i caratteri unici e distintivi, le prospettive e le difficoltà che i gay e le lesbiche incontrano. Il testo italiano affronta il problema delle terapie riparative da un punto di vista rigorosamente scientifico: a partire dai risultati della revisione sistematica elaborata dalla American Psychological Association, che dichiara l'inconsistenza e la debolezza metodologica delle ricerche che pretendono di dimostrare il cambiamento dell'orientamento omosessuale, gli autori analizzano in profondità tutti gli aspetti delle terapie riparative, dimostrandone l'inefficacia e la rischiosità. Il libro offre un modello di accoglienza delle persone omosessuali - comprese quelle credenti - valido per ogni approccio e per ogni rapporto di cura, basato sulle evidenze scientifiche e sul rispetto etico integrale dei diritti di gay e lesbiche

Real-World Wireless Sensor Networks Proceedings of the 5th International Workshop, REALWSN 2013, Como (Italy), September 19-20, 2013 by K. G Langendoen( )

11 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This edited book presents the results of the 5th Workshop on Real-world Wireless Sensor Networks (REALWSN). The purpose of this workshop was to bring together researchers and practitioners working in the area of sensor networks, with focus on real-world experiments or deployments of wireless sensor networks. Included were, nonetheless, emerging forms of sensing such as those that leverage smart phones, Internet of Things, RFIDs, and robots. Indeed, when working with real-world experiments or deployments, many new or unforeseen issues may arise: the network environment may be composed of a variety of different technologies, leading to very heterogeneous network structures; software development for large scale networks poses new types of problems; the performance of prototype networks may differ significantly from the deployed system; whereas actual sensor network deployments may need a complex combination of autonomous and manual configuration. Furthermore, results obtained through simulation are typically not directly applicable to operational networks; it is therefore imperative for the community to produce results from experimental research. The workshop collected the state of the art in emerging and current research trends dealing with Real-world Wireless Sensor Networks, with the aim of representing a stepping stone for future research in this field
