2.3 Summary Mind–body dualism has been a pervasive problem since the seventeenth century. One consequence of this dualism is the way in which bodies have been treated in psychology. They have generally either been ignored or reduced to biology. However, our bodies are much more than simply biology; at the very least, they are the interface between the individual and the social world or, more radically, they are inherently social objects. There is growing recognition of the interaction between our bodie

21H.346 France 1660-1815: Enlightenment, Revolution, Napoleon (MIT)
A century and a half ago, Alexis de Tocqueville argued that the Revolution of 1789 in France constituted the culmination of long-term administrative and social changes, rather than a rupture with the past. In this class, we will consider that Tocquevillian insight by examining four aspects of French experience from the reign of the Sun King, Louis XIV, to the rule of the Emperor Napoléon Bonaparte: Absolutism, Enlightenment, Revolution, and Empire. Through the study of primary and secondary sou
Yandle on the Tragedy of the Commons and the Implications for Environmental Regulation
Bruce Yandle of Clemson University and George Mason University's Mercatus Center looks at the tragedy of the commons and the various ways that people have avoided the overuse of resources that are held in common. Examples discussed include fisheries, roads, rivers and the air. Yandle talks with EconTalk host Russ Roberts about the historical use of norms, cooperative ventures such as incorporating a river, the common law, and top-down command-and-control regulation to reduce air and water pollut
STS.036 Technology and Nature in American History (MIT)
This course considers how the visual and material world of "nature" has been reshaped by industrial practices, ideologies, and institutions, particularly in nineteenth- and twentieth-century America. Topics include land-use patterns; the changing shape of cities and farms; the redesign of water systems; the construction of roads, dams, bridges, irrigation systems; the creation of national parks; ideas about wilderness; and the role of nature in an industrial world. From small farms to suburbia,
4.607 Thinking About Architecture: In History and at Present (MIT)
This class will be constructed as a lecture-discussion, the purpose being to engage important theoretical issues while simultaneously studying their continuing historical significance. To enhance discussion, three debates will be held in class. Each student will be required to participate in one of these debates. Each student will also be required to write three short papers. Class participation is essential and will be factored into the final grade.The course will portray the history of theory

7.349 Biological Computing: At the Crossroads of Engineering and Science (MIT)
Imagine you are a salesman needing to visit 100 cities connected by a set of roads. Can you do it while stopping in each city only once? Even a supercomputer working at 1 trillion operations per second would take longer than the age of the universe to find a solution when considering each possibility in turn. In 1994, Leonard Adleman published a paper in which he described a solution, using the tools of molecular biology, for a smaller 7-city example of this problem. His paper generated enormous
Help and a New Deal
President Franklin Delano Roosevelt (photographed in 1935 with his wife, Eleanor) created the New Deal as a solution for bringing the United States out of the Great Depression. The New Deal created a new role for the federal government, one that involved infusing money into the economy largely through the creation of new jobs and social programs. One photograph shows Roosevelt signing the Social Security Act of 1935, which was designed to keep citizens from becoming destitute. The New Deal also
The end of the road?
Road traffic has grown more than 80% since 1980 - as a result roads have deteriorated more quickly than could have been envisaged. Britain's road network is one of the countries largest national assets. Professor Andy Collop from the School of Civil Engineering describes the research taking place in Nottingham Transportation Engineering Centre and the improvements such knowledge can make to road materials, structures and sustainability.
Washington is Elected President
Video accompanied by text. Once the Constitution received approval from the minimum nine states, the framers forged ahead with structuring a new government. March 4, 1789 was selected as the date for the new Congress of the United States to convene, but it was another month before there were enough delegates present to count the ballots cast for President of the United States.
On April 30, 1789, the final tally of votes showed that George Washington had won the popular vote and unanimousl
Auroras Through Dance
Maida Withers, professor of theatre and dance at George Washington University, presents Dance of the Auroras - Fire in the Sky, a poetic voyage through space from the Sun to Earth. Showcasing a performance of artistic modernity, the performance uses dance, music and cyber art to recreate the mystic luminaries of auroras. This international project reclaims the connections between science and art, technology and the natural world, drawing the audience into a ritual both ancient and new. 28:57 min
Venus: Death of a Planet
"From the fires of a sun's birth... twin planets emerged. Venus... and Earth. Two roads diverged in our young solar system. Nature draped one world in the greens and blues of life.
While enveloping the other in acid clouds... high heat... and volcanic flows. Why did Venus take such a disastrous turn?"
NOTE: There is very brief (a second), frontal female nudity of the antique sculpture of Venus. Narrated with English captions. Excellent computer animation.(22:09)

Alaska Brown Bear Trapped National Geographic Video. National Geographic researchers trap an Alaskan brown bear for research. Video is used for research on the life of the brown bear. Researchers are trying to discover more about the bears movement. How is their movement affected by clear cut forests and roads? They use GPS systems to do this, in order to get the GPS on the bear they need to capture the bear the bear does not like this.
