Knowing Afghanistan: Can there be an end to the saga?

چکیده

War on terrorism, as the motto which formed the cornerstone of global policies of former     neo-conservative administration of the United States, is increasingly becoming ineffective in Afghanistan with the dreaded consequence of spilling over into Pakistan. This inevitable consequence of War on    Terrorism in Afghanistan has brought the West face to face with the ‘nest of terrorism’ that CIA built in Pakistan’s so-called madrasas of extremist Wahhabi teachings in the first place, with the enthusiastic   assistance of Nawaz Sharif’s government in Pakistan, the Al-Saud of Saudi Arabia and the Al-Nahyan of the United Arab Emirates in late 1990s. In their evil planning they found it necessary to invent a state  history for Afghanistan based on former British colonial designs for the region during their geopolitics of Great Game with Russia in 19th century. They invented the Afghan state by putting together territories they severed from the veining Persian Empire of the time. This process of state-manufacturing in        Afghanistan though served the colonial purposes at the time, never proved to be working in the sense that is expected of a genuinely founded nation and nation-state. The ills of this ill-designed state will naturally disallow any remedy that is not based on a genuine state-building process in that country. To produce such a remedy Afghanistan needs to address the ills of its state-structure by pinpointing the centrifugal forces that drives various ethnicities apart and to try and find some kind of accommodation among components that makes up the state of Afghanistan. The best method to achieve this in today world of politics would probably be a genuinely designed federalism.

Can there be an ethics of care?

There is a growing body of writing, for instance from the nursing profession, espousing an approach to ethics based on care. I suggest that this approach is hopelessly vague and that the vagueness is due to an inadequate analysis of the concept of care. An analysis of 'care' and related terms suggests that care is morally neutral. Caring is not good in itself, but only when it is for the right ...

the aesthetic dimension of howard barkers art: a frankfurtian approach to scenes from an execution and no end of blame

رابطه ی میانِ هنر و شرایطِ اجتماعیِ زایش آن همواره در طولِ تاریخ دغدغه ی ذهنی و دل مشغولیِ اساسیِ منتقدان و نیز هنرمندان بوده است. از آنجا که هنر در قفس آهنیِ زندگیِ اجتماعی محبوس است، گسترش وابستگیِ آن با نهاد ها و اصولِ اجتماعی پیرامون، صرفِ نظر از هم سو بودن و یا غیرِ هم سو بودنِ آن نهاد ها، امری اجتناب ناپذیر به نظر می رسد. با این وجود پدیدار گشتنِ چنین مباحثِ حائز اهمییتی در میان منتقدین، با ظهورِ مکتب ما...

Judging Strives to be Knowing

There is a vexing oversight at the end of Book V of the Republic. Socrates engages in a discussion ‘with’ or about the Lovers of Sights and Sounds, in order distinguish philosophers from the seekers of any new experience whatsoever. He’ll do this by showing that there is a difference between knowing, knowledge (γιγνῶσκειν, γνῶσις, ἐπιστήμη) and judging or belief (δοξάζειν, δόξα). This argument ...

Can There Be an Explicit Formula for Implied Volatility?

It is “well known” that there is no explicit expression for the Black-Scholes implied volatility. We prove that, as a function of underlying, strike, and call price, implied volatility does not belong to the class of Dfinite functions. This does not rule out all explicit expressions, but shows that implied volatility does not belong to a certain large class, which contains many elementary funct...

Will there ever be an end to the Caesarean section rate debate?

Caesarean section rates continue to rise. To date, no serious attempt has been made to address this issue. There are no scientific grounds for identifying an 'appropriate' level for Caesarean section rates. A 'Term Cephalic Trial' may provide such information, but poses major logistic and ethical challenges. The authors propose that a combination of known and newly developed predictors of emerg...

Thinking Machines: Can There Be? Are We?

Artificial intelligence researchers predict that _thinking machines_ will take over our mental work, just as their mechanical predecessors were intended to eliminate physical drudgery. Critics have argued with equal fervor that _thinking machine_ is a contradiction in terms. Computers, with their foundations of cold logic, can never be creative or insightful or possess real judgment. Although m...
