Synesthesia in music establishes a correspondence between sound and color and has been a constant debate since the 17th century. The complex nature of sound appears from ancient Greece in the school of Pythagoras in which the number becomes the configurator of harmony. Since then, different aesthetic attempts have arisen to relate color and sound that reach today's electronic procedures in contemporary music.</p> 2022-05-31T00:00:00+02:00 Copyright (c) 2022 HUMAN REVIEW. International Humanities Review / Revista Internacional de Humanidades https://journals.eagora.org/revHUMAN/article/view/3179 The Category of Performance in Hannah Arendt 2022-07-27T17:49:35+02:00 Elisa Goyenechea elisagoyenechea@uca.ed.ar <p>The paper inquires the category of <em>performance</em> in Hannah Arendt. Her concept of the political eludes the tradition-inherited approach and subtracts the praxis from instrumental reason. Arendt revisits the political experiences of ancient Greek cities, where tragedy and assembly, theater and agora, provide the propitious space for action. She avoids the instrumental approach of <em>homo faber</em>, conceptualizes action as performance and shows its connaturality with the performing arts, to the detriment of the productive ones. In “What is Freedom?” Arendt understands political freedom as a “worldly fact”, and assesses the Machiavellian <em>virtù</em> as public excellence: as <em>performance on stage</em>.</p> 2022-05-17T00:00:00+02:00 Copyright (c) 2022 HUMAN REVIEW.

To do this, it shows the original approach to this issue present in the thought of the current Spanish philosopher J. M. Méndez. According to the characteristic thinking of this author, freedom does not represent a value but the gateway or the very possibility of participation in any ethical value, as postulated by his <em>axiological liberalism</em>.</p> <p> </p> 2022-05-18T00:00:00+02:00 Copyright (c) 2022 HUMAN REVIEW.

I show why artworks, thanks to the ontological and material elements that constitute them, are the privileged point to comprehend the factors at play in society. In order to achieve this, I investigate particularly the concept of form. With this, I underline how the character of “open form” of modern art claimed by Adorno, though being a manifestation of a contingent historical moment, is able to deeply reflect the character of “openness” of reason, which thus conjugates with the proper function of philosophy.</p> 2022-06-29T00:00:00+02:00 Copyright (c) 2022 HUMAN REVIEW.

Focused on content analysis, the research takes into account the activity of their web pages and the interaction on their social networks. The results show that in Spain informative and informative actions prevailed, while Ecuador and Peru focused on cultural and educational ones. The most relevant contents were oriented to the teaching-learning of heritage, mainly through the development of webinars and online conferences.</p> 2022-07-05T00:00:00+02:00 Copyright (c) 2022 HUMAN REVIEW.

Thus, information from the National Household Survey of Peru is analyzed, estimating three regression models based on who finished university studies and who did not. Our results show that completing university presents higher private returns than not doing it, and that the gap in returns by sex is shortened in those who finish their studies. In addition, there are higher returns in urban areas, capital cities, quality universities, and in those who do not study an education career.</p> 2022-07-08T00:00:00+02:00 Copyright (c) 2022 HUMAN REVIEW.

However, depending on the nature of the story, the construction of the textual and audiovisual discourse is altered. In this article, we consider the following questions: Is the documentary a format that is faithful to reality? What modifications does the discourse undergo so that the story is enhanced? To go deeper into this aspect, we intend to analyse the different elements that make up the documentary discourse in its transition from reality to fictionalised narrative. To this end, an inspection of the environmental dissemination documentary My Octopus Teacher (Netflix, 2020) will be carried out. An audiovisual proposal in which the coexistence between human and animal life turns environmental dissemination into a powerful instrument for transmitting scientific knowledge.</p> 2022-08-03T00:00:00+02:00 Copyright (c) 2022 HUMAN REVIEW.
