Studia Humaniora Tartuensia + Philosophia Reformata

Philosophia Reformata (PR) was founded in 1935 by the Dutch philosophers Herman Dooyeweerd and Dirk Vollenhoven. Since its inception it has carried papers, critical studies and reviews that contribute to the on-going project of Christian Philosophy. The journal has its historical and intellectual background in the so-called neo-Calvinist movement that gained momentum through the work of the 19th century Dutch theologian, politician, university founder and publicist Dr. Abraham Kuyper.

Studia Humaniora Tartuensia (SHT) publish scholarly papers and notes embodying original research in all areas of the humanities, but especially classical studies and ancient history, Neo-Latin studies, classical tradition, history of scholarship and philosophy.

Ambele reviste au arhivele on-line, multe articole putand fi accesate liber.

Data fiind situatia din Norvegia, un articol publicat in 2006 in PR mi-a atras atentia:

The Concept of Multicultural Democracy: A Preliminary Christian-Philosophical Appraisal.

Eliel Saarinen

…si spunea:

“Always design a thing by considering it in its next larger context – a chair in a room, a room in a house, a house in an environment, an environment in a city plan.”

The Impact of Building on Behavior and vice versa.

Noua arhitectura estona

Ma gandeam sa prezint ceva exemplu de arhitectura contemporana din Tallinn, dar m-am razgandit. Tallinn e mare, Tallinn e capitala, Tallinn e oficial. Asa ca am ales Sõmeru, o localitate minuscula din N-V Estoniei.

Cu doar cateva luni in urma, la Sõmeru a fost finalizata o noua constructie ce adaposteste biblioteca, o sala de auditie, sala de concerte, teatru, un spatiu pentru batrani (Senior Day Center) etc. Pentru constructie au fost folosite doar materiale ecologice, impactul asupra mediului inconjurator fiind redus la minim.

Polaarmõis

Unul din exploratorii cu minte incalzita si in cautare de Paradisuri pierdute a fost un membru al familiei von Toll, germani baltici.

Paradisul baronului Eduard Toll a fost insula Sannikov – un pamant minunat, plin de chestii cool. Tipul a murit cautand acest tinut si negasind-ul. Casa sa inca exista in estul Estoniei. Renovata,  respectiva mõis (corespondentul romanesc pentru conac) este astazi hotel / muzeu. Se organizeaza workshop-uri de caligrafie gotica, vizitatorii sunt invitati sa poarte vesminte de epoca din garderoba conacului. Cateva imagini:

Nisha Inalsingh – Huldufólk 102 [2006]

Intreaga Scandinavie este presarata de pietre, de felul celor pe care le puteti vedea in trailer-ul de mai jos. Ele exista si in Estonia (se numesc rändrahn = stanci  calatoare) sau Islanda. In Estonia fiecare piatra de acest gen este ocrotita de lege, are un nume si o istorie in spatele ei.

Iata ce cred islandezii despre aceste stanci:

Transmedia

Large studios and broadcasters, as well as independent filmmakers are building fictional worlds that smash through their frames on to multiple platforms. This new type of tie-in extends, rather than adapts, storylines. It tells various parts of the story using distinct media, exploiting the qualities unique to each platform. Today’s transmedia producers are planning for multiple platforms from the start. They design fictional universes that are consistent however the audience engages. The trend is already reconfiguring the industry, affecting everything from how stories are made, down to titles on business cards.

Henry Jenkins explica cu cuvintele sale de prof’ la MIT ce-si-cum cu transmedia asta buclucasa, aici:

21 century trans-mediated world, that is a world where converging technologies and cultures give rise to a new media landscape.
