In the exhibition that is presented, we define the concept of policy in the light of “The Eighteenth Brumaire of Louis Napoleon”, of which Marx noted a specific reading on the story. However, we make use of the hypothesis sustained by Lacan that Marx "invented the symptom", that is, he was the first to denounce the despoliation of a jouissance.</p> Maico Fernando Costa Gustavo Henrique Dionisio Copyright (c) 2020-06-11 2020-06-11 9 1 23 31 10.37467/gka-revhuman.v9.2473 Borders of Music: The Horizon and the Other in Musical Experience <p>The sound recording and reproduction systems and the development without precedents of communication technologies consitute decisive elements for thinking music nowadays. In this context, the present article brings into dialogue two questions. In the first place, the question of the essence of music from the conquest of ubiquity with the appearance of Internet. Secondly, the question about the other in musical experience, addressing the concert as a communicative situation.</p> Javier Ares Yebra Copyright (c) 2020-07-02 2020-07-02 9 1 33 39 10.37467/gka-revhuman.v9.2496 From Tamagotchi to Tardigotchi: the Ontopsychological Coordinates of the New Humanities <p>The present article constitutes a metacriticism of Tardigotchi, as biological-technological hybrid product derived from Tamagotchi and as practice of objectual art, based on a transversal approach of diverse humanistic perspectives, i.e., the ontological, ethical, aesthetic and psychological ones. Hence the interpretation of the complex relations between Tardigotchi and its human genesis permits a discovery of the ontopsychological coordinates of Tardigotchi and the new humanities, and at the same time, the materialization of new reflections on the relations between materiality and humanity, among human sciences, technology and ecology.</p> Bei Yao Copyright (c) 2020-07-02 2020-07-02 9 1 41 52 10.37467/gka-revhuman.v9.2472 “Shadows Like to Thee”: Modern Writers on the Character of William Shakespeare <p>A swarm of books boasting William Shakespeare as a central character have hit the bookstands in recent years. The question is, why? In some books, he is rather insipid, as if his brand is too hot to tamper with, and he is reduced to the status of a sacred cow. In other books, he is too busy fighting for truth and justice to be bothered with taking up the quill, while in others, he is an opportunistic “Shake-scene” who has no qualms about “beautifying” himself with his contemporaries’ feathers. I propose to look at such works in the aggregate and determine the basic physical and character traits that modern scribes attribute to our Will. My journey will take me primarily to novels (of the historical fiction school), but I shall be stopping along the way to consider works in other media, including a recent TV series, that also features the Bard. Among the novelists included in my study are Patricia Finney (The James Enys Mysteries), Rory Clements (The John Shakespeare Mysteries), Benet Brandreth (The William Shakespeare Mysteries), and Leonard Tourney (The Mysteries of Shakespeare).</p> Alan Forrest Hickman Copyright (c) 2020-07-28 2020-07-28 9 1 53 60 10.37467/gka-revhuman.v9.2602 Transformation from Social Unity to a Quest for the Self: “Only Connect” In Forster’s Howards End And Smith’s On Beauty <p>As the epitome of his humanistic view of life, E. M. Forster’s motto “only connect” is best represented by Howards End. Henry Wilcox’s and Margaret’s indifference and distanced approach to Leonard’s demand for employment because of his lower status, Helen’s failed efforts for the appreciation of the lower strata in the case of the Bast family and Leonard Bast’s acceptance of his inferiority to the Wilcoxes embody Forster’s anxieties regarding the “connection” among different social classes. However, contemporary man’s quest for a new self within the dynamism of the contemporary world despite the realisation of Forster’s emphasis on “connection” in the contemporary context is epitomised in Zadie Smith’s On Beauty. In the novel, Howard’s efforts for a new self by his affair with Victoria and his failure in returning to his family bonds indicate that Forster’s emphasis on “connection” among people turns into a quest for a new self in contemporary circumstances.</p> Tarik Ziyad Gulcu Copyright (c) 2020-07-28 2020-07-28 9 1 61 69 10.37467/gka-revhuman.v9.2603
