History

| February 3, 2016

Read this passage from Jacob Riis’ “How the Other Half Lives,” and then answer the question that follows.

How the Other Half Lives

When once I asked the agent of a notorious Fourth Ward alley how many people might be living in it I was told: one hundred and forty

families, one hundred Irish, thirty-eight Italian, and two that spoke the German tongue. Barring the agent herself, there was not a

native-born individual in the court. The answer was characteristic of the cosmopolitan character of lower New York, very nearly so for

the whole of it, wherever it runs to alleys and courts. One may find for the asking an Italian, a German, a French, African, Spanish,

Bohemian, Russian, Scandinavian, Jewish, and Chinese colony. Even the Arab, who peddles “holy earth” from the Battery as a direct

importation from Jerusalem, has his exclusive preserves at the lower end of Washington Street. The one thing you shall vainly ask for

in the chief city of America is a distinctively American community. There is none; certainly not among the tenements. . .

The once unwelcome Irishman has been followed in his turn by the Italian, the Russian Jew, and the Chinaman, and has himself taken a

hand of opposition, quite as bitter and quite as ineffectual, against these later hordes. Wherever these have gone they have crowded

him out, possessing the block, the street, the ward with their denser swarms. . . .

A map of the city, colored to designate nationalities, would show more stripes than the skin of a zebra, and more colors than any

rainbow.

Question Prompt

Consider the following questions:

· How does Riis’s account compare with the “melting pot” thesis?

· What ethnic/racial group that would later occupy the slums of northern cities is absent from this mixed crowd?

· What comparisons could be made between the poor neighborhoods of the late nineteenth century and those of today?

Week 4 Discussion

| February 3, 2016

According to Descartes that gland is the principal seat of the soul and the place from which all thought originates.

A thousand years before Descartes, Plato said that the body is from the material world and that the soul is from the world of ideas

and, therefore, inmortal. When the body dies the soul joins the universe and never dies, always according to Plato.

Back to Descartes, the senses perceive things and send it to that pineal gland, and from there to the inmaterial spirit (right). That´s

Cartesian dualism in simple terms.

Neat, no? But, what do you think?

Descartes is very much “Western” thought.

Look at what “Eastern” thought says at http://youtu.be/cAITqbxeyx8

So, now vest yourself with some philosophical robe and in 275 words or more respond to the following questions:

1. How would you summarize what Descartes and Plato are saying? Do you make any connections to previously held beliefs about the nature

of body and soul?

2. If you had to choose between “Western” and “Eastern” thought, as very superficially described above, which one would you choose?

Why?

3. Why would it matter if body and soul are one, or separate entities? What are the possible implications for living if they are one or

separate entities? What would you rather have, a dualist world or a monist world?

4. AFTER AND ONLY AFTER you´ve written your response (preferably as a separate document), then go to

http://www.mindcreators.com/dualism.htm and reevaluate what you wrote. Did you change your mind? Why?

Submit your final response after the above process. And, congrats,

you´ve become a philosopher!! Oh, but wait, you must first become a Vegan (see photo at right) or read the article at

Choose one of the books from the auxiliary reading list or suggest your own title, but get the approval of the instructors first. Note:

Do not review a course text (B&K, Battersby, Sagan).

First – read the entire book carefully taking notes as you go. Reread parts of particular interest. You can’t write a good review until

you have gotten a good grasp of the content and intent of the book.

When you write the review, assume that the audience would be someone who might be interested in reading a book on that subject. Don’t

just summarize the book. Describe the general level of the material, the nature of the book (skeptical or credulous), and how well the

material is covered and presented. Some concluding comments about the book are in order.

Write so that someone who might be interested in the book can read your review and make an intelligent decision whether to obtain the

book and read it, or skip it because it is not what they are interested in.

Look at the reviews on amazon.com and in the New York Times to become familiar with the genre, BUT DO NOT PLAGIARIZE! You can submit

your review at amazon.com for participation points, and with a free amazon.com account you can rate their books.

WE MUST HAVE AN ELECTRONIC COPY OF THIS ASSIGNMENT!
Submit your assignment using this website: https://www.physics.smu.edu/pseudo/submit/. Please follow the instructions on the website.

The assignment is “BR1” or “BR2”, depending on whether this is the first or second of the two book reviews you are submitting.
If you have ANY problems using the web page to submit the assignment, DO NOT PANIC! It’s very important that you tell us what problem

(s) you have. To do this, please cut-and-paste the error message(s) you get and email them to pseudo@physics.smu.edu. Attach to that

email your assignment, so we can process it and give you credit.

Chapter 2: How to Really See a Piece of Art

| February 3, 2016

Writing Your First Formal Analysis

You will use vocabulary to describe images from the book. Structure your descriptions into an illustrative paragraph. Your goals are:
• To investigate visual art looking for specific design elements and methodologies.
• To learn to use the visual art lexicon.
• To begin learning how to write a formal analysis.

I want you to approach this as an opportunity to show me that you understand the bulk of the vocabulary from Chapter 2, The Language of

Art & Architecture. You are describing what you see, not concepts or symbolism. In other words, it’s not about what you think the work

is about, it’s what the work is made of.

Here’s an example using the same vocabulary box as the first one on the next page using Image 4.14 Juan O’Gorman’s Panel of the

Independence – Father Hidalgo, 1960-1961. Mural. Museo Nacional de Historia, Castillo de Chapultepec, Mexico City.

Juan O’Gorman’s mural depicts a variety of people and architecture in Mexico using a chaotic, multipoint perspective that fills the

planar space. The figures are correctly proportioned but their scale is “off” because the figures seem to be stacked upon one another

in multiple layers rather than becoming smaller as they recede back in space. This hieratical scaling makes the priest at the bottom

right of the image seem connected to the group of suited gentlemen on the left. Their importance and power are illustrated by their

larger size in comparison to the Indians dressed less nicely and scattered in an eccentric rhythm throughout the picture plane. The

layering also gives the piece a sense of time passing – it illustrates multiple events in one composition. The palette uses the entire

color wheel but focuses mostly on secondary and tertiary colors, specifically oranges, blues, and grays (the blue-gray tone at the top

creates atmospheric perspective, pushing the mountains at the top way back in the space). This is a smooth painting in contrast with

the subject’s visual texture, and does not make use of hatching or cross-hatching and instead, blocks of color. The lighting is bright

and ambient rather than
high in contrast; everything is evenly lit, even those objects in the back.
Avoid descriptions like this:

“This painting uses multipoint perspective, planar space, hieratical scaling and visual texture.”

While not untrue, the entire point of this essay is to describe WHY and HOW you can see multipoint perspective, or planar space, etc.

Prove to me that you know how to use these words in order to describe a piece of art. Your best bet is to pretend that you are

describing the work to someone who cannot see it, and has never seen it.

Ethics

| February 3, 2016

Please submit an approximately two-three page double spaced reflection on the assigned readings or on the material covered in

class.Your goal is not to summarize the readings. Rather, you should analyze and reflect critically upon a couple significant issues

raised in the readings. To reiterate, ideally you will critically reflect upon these readings by linking them with other material we

have covered in our course (readings / discussion), and other aspects of your experience and knowledge (e.g. personal history such as

ethical dilemmas faced at work, issues observed in media, other courses…etc.).
The reflection should help you to intentionally and thoughtfully reflect upon the experience and what you learned from it. It is

intended to help you focus in on what you are learning (or not learning), identify issues or concerns on your mind, explore an idea

more deeply, or in other ways enhance your learning about the course topics, yourself, and others.
You should answer the following questions:
WHAT? Very brief!! One sentence about what have you learned? What stands out to you, excites you, or challenges you?
SO WHAT? Why does this learning matter? Why does it stand out to you? Why is it important – to you personally or in the bigger picture?
NOW WHAT? What do you do from here? How will you take this learning with you? Does this learning change your perspective, your career

goals, or your interests?
This is a written assignment and must be submitted using proper English. Pay attention to sentence and paragraph structure, choice of

words, and completeness of your thoughts. Do not use bullet points. Plagiarism is unacceptable and submissions will be analyzed for

plagiarism using Turnitin.
