Описание:

Imperial Media: Colonial Networks and Information Technologies in the British Literary Imagination, 18571918brings together two of the most dynamic and productive approaches to the study of nineteenth-century literature in recent yearsmedia studies and colonial studiesto illuminate the rich and enduring symbiosis that developed between information technologies and Empire. Over a century before Facebook and the iPhone, Britons relied on the electric media of their day for information about their global empirebut those media, which during Victoria s reign stretched out its tentacles to form a true world wide web, not only delivered information but provided conceptual frames as well, helping to shape the way their users thought.

Ranging in space from the telegraph offices of Kipling s India to the wireless transmitter on H.G. Wells s Africanized moon, and in time from the Sepoy Rebellion to the Great War, Imperial Mediareveals the extent to which British conceptions of imperial power were inflected by the new media of the nineteenth century: the telegraph, telephone, phonograph, radio, and cinema.

While focusing on the fiction of Kipling, Wells, Marie Corelli, H. Rider Haggard, and John Buchan ( the last Victorian, in Gertrude Himmelfarb s phrase), Aaron Worth also argues that the imperial media of the Victorians retain much of their imaginative life and power today, informing such popular entertainments of the twenty-first century as Bollywood cinema and the BBC s science-fiction franchiseTorchwood. This is a vital, engaging study that will shape future discussions of both colonial and information systems, as well as the relationship between the two, in Victorian studies and elsewhere.

Welfare, meaning, and worth

Описание: Welfare, Meaning, and Worth argues that there is more to what makes a life worth living than welfare, and that a good life does not consist of what is merely good for the one who lives it. Smuts defends an objective list theory that states that the notion of worth captures matters of importance for which no plausible theory of welfare can account. He puts forth that lives worth living are net high in various objective goods, including pleasure, meaning, knowledge, and loving relationships. The first part of the book presents a theory of worth, a mental statist account of welfare, and an objectivist theory of meaning. The second part explores the implications for moral theory, the popularity of painful art, and the viability of pessimism about the human condition. This book offers an original exploration of worth as a combination of welfare and meaning that will be of interest to philosophers and ethicists who work on issues in well-being and positive psychology.
