Forgetting machines : knowledge management evolution in early modern Europe by Alberto Cevolini( )

11 editions published between 2010 and 2016 in English and French and held by 715 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

We are so accustomed to use digital memories as data storage devices, that we are oblivious to the improbability of such a practice. Habit hides what we habitually use. To understand the worldwide success of archives and card indexing systems that allow to remember more because they allow to forget more than before, the evolution of scholarly practices and the transformation of cognitive habits in the early modern age must be investigated. This volume contains contributions by nearly every distinguished scholar in the field of early modern knowledge management and filing systems, and offers a remarkable synthesis of the present state of scholarship. A final section explores some current issues in record-keeping and note-taking systems, and provides valuable cues for future research

The ark of studies by Thomas Harrison( Book )

2 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 43 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The first search engine of modern age. Knowledge management and production is performed today by means of search engines. This implies the use of machines as external memories. For sure, computer is the most successful device. However, it is neither the first nor the only one. Indeed, the use of secondary memories is an essential feature of modern age, and involves archives and filing cabinets too. The present book is the first critical edition of the manuscript in which Thomas Harrison sketched an extraordinary invention: 'the Ark of Studies' (ca. 1640). 'The Ark of Studies' is the first filing cabinet based on alphabetically arranged removable entries that has been designed for scholarly purposes in the 17th Century. Regarding its structure and function, this filing cabinet may be regarded as the most relevant scholarly machine in the modern age before the invention of the Web. The introductory essay tries to explain how it was possible that a high improbable deviation - that is, to entrust memorable knowledge to a machine rather than to consciousness, out of which it could be retrieved only by means of a combinatory art - became normal

Sociologia della modernità : forme e conseguenze della complessità sociale by Nicolò Addario( Book )

4 editions published in 2012 in Italian and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Lo scopo di questo libro è presentare in modo chiaro e conciso le prospettive inedite e in parte ancora inesplorate aperte dalla teoria dei sistemi sociali. Il libro si divide in due sezioni complementari: nella prima la sociologia viene descritta come una versione particolare della teoria generale dei sistemi, nella seconda la sociologia viene presentata come teoria della società moderna. In questo modo si realizza sul piano della scienza la riflessività di una società che descrive se stessa

Il rischio dell'assicurazione contro i pericoli by Niklas Luhmann( Book )

3 editions published in 2013 in Italian and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

L'assicurazione è una delle istituzioni più astratte e complesse della società moderna. Una sociologia dell'assicurazione, tuttavia, non esiste ancora. Gli articoli di Niklas Luhmann qui raccolti rappresentano un primo tentativo di delineare i confini di una ricerca sociologica che sappia collocare l'assicurazione fra le principali conquiste evolutive della società e colleghi alla trasformazione delle strutture sociali l'ipotesi fondamentale che l'essenza dell'assicurazione consista nel trasformare i pericoli nel rischio di essere o non essere assicurati
