To achieve this goal, it will firstly compare the two forms of detextualization of space operated by Italian artists and by Dutch artists. Finally, it will indicate how each detextualization allowed for the development within the science of the mathematical tradition by the Italian Culture and the experimental tradition by the Dutch culture.</p> 2020-09-22T13:39:58+02:00 Copyright (c) Bolívar Echeverría: on Existencialism 2020-12-28T18:05:04+01:00 Gersón Anangonó Rosero Cristian Paúl Naranjo Navas <p class="p1">The present study reviews the most important existentialist schools of thought as an introduction to understand the intellectual approach of the Ecuadorian philosopher Bolívar Vinicio Echeverría Andrade about existentialism. Echeverría was one of the most important thinkers of the philosophy for Latin America. The work covers the approach of Echeverría on the existentialism of the twentieth century, through the inscription of his thought in “The Humanism of Existentialism”.</p> 2020-10-20T10:32:08+02:00 Copyright (c) The Actor as Author of the Text he Acts 2020-12-28T18:05:02+01:00 Marta Nogueira <p>We aim to demonstrate how the acting technique and skills of an actor may influence the intentions of a text’s author, showing him new paths through the human and emotional factors. We also aim to demonstrate that what is usually considered a “text” may not always be a fixed entity produced by a single isolated individual.</p> <p>The analysis of the staging and film adaptation of Tennessee Williams’ <em>A Streetcar Named Desire</em> and the development of the character <em>Stanley Kowalski</em> by Marlon Brando, shows how he changed the written version of the play, shifting its core, interfering with the balance between the two main characters and helping to shape the cultural and historical attributes which rendered its particular place in art history. The text produced by the actor may, thus, assume an identical value to that of the dramatic script from which it developed, or even produce a higher impact.</p> 2020-12-21T13:23:04+01:00 Copyright (c) The Concept of Originality in Art and its Determinants in the Creative Experience in the Contemporary 2020-12-28T18:04:50+01:00 Geruza Valadares Souza <p class="p1">We propose to investigate the concepts of po.esis , t.chne , al.theia<span class="Apple-converted-space">&nbsp; </span>and praxis<span class="Apple-converted-space">&nbsp; </span>and their relationship with human creation in three historical periods: in Greek antiquity, in modernity and in contemporary times, in order to answer the question: What is the state of creation in the contemporary? In this sense, the research analyzes the concept of originality in antiquity and modernity, with the aim of demonstrating the determining influence of this concept on the understanding of artistic experience in the contemporary world.</p> 2020-12-24T13:30:25+01:00 Copyright (c) General Considerations around the Understanding of the Reality of the Social World 2020-12-29T08:27:53+01:00 Saul Marcelo Chinche Calizaya <p>The construction of knowledge in the Social Sciences, undoubtedly has an unfinished character given its provisional nature; It is clear that there is always something radically incomplete in this type of knowledge, whose study is precisely oriented to the analysis of social phenomena. We arrive at this statement, by virtue of the fact that social phenomena in general tend to resemble unrepeatable periodicities not only because of their actors who interact in it, but basically because of the delimitation of time-space; added to the fact that they are unstable, complex, dynamic and contradictory, which make it even more difficult to understand and interpret them.</p> 2020-12-28T09:39:20+01:00 Copyright (c)
