In keeping with the tradition of the last twenty-some years, the Readings in Optimization seminar will focus on an advanced topic of interest to a portion of the MIT optimization community: randomized methods for deterministic optimization. In contrast to conventional optimization algorithms whose iterates are computed and analyzed deterministically, randomized methods rely on stochastic processes and random number/vector generation as part of the algorithm and/or its analysis. In the seminar, w

Mom Loved Him Best: Bert & Ivan Sutherland
[Recorded February 3, 2004] Computing industry legends and brothers Bert and Ivan Sutherland reminisce about their collective 100 plus years with computers and electronics. Bert Sutherland developed, managed and mentored some of the most important computing innovations of the past half-century, from Bolt, Beranek & Newman ( BBN) and Xerox PARC in the 1970s to managing Java development at Sun Microsystems Laboratories in the 1990s. Ivan Sutherland is considered by many to be the creator of comp

Colour on the Thames (1935)
(This is a higher-quality version of one of BFIFilms' most popular titles) This film is tricky to describe: is it a boat study, a film-poem, an experiment, a picture postcard? One thing is certain: it's a rare colour snapshot of the Thames and London in the 1930s - and it looks quite magical. Its artistic qualities may look a bit old-fashioned to us today; the slow pace, orchestral music and moody colours definitely belong to a bygone era, strikingly peaceful and undemanding. Yet colour film w

I hope that this more extended study of religion in context has been interesting in itself and that you have glimpsed something of the richness of Hinduism. We have made this brief study of Hinduism also to put to work some of the principles in the study of religion that we met earlier in this unit. I want finally to draw some threads together by considering more generally the problems and pitfalls of using the concept of ‘religionâ€™ in a cross-cultural study.

The claim that it is possible to study religion adequately from a disinterested position has been hotly debated. Can the understanding of the observer achieve the same level of insight and authority as the participant in a religion? No serious student of religion can avoid confronting this question.

The ‘outsiderâ€™ cannot escape depending to an extent upon insights from ‘insidersâ€™ when studying a particular religion. An ‘outsiderâ€™ who has never been through a p

Whatever else they may be, religions grow in historical and social settings. The present form of a religion has its roots in the past. Religion can exercise a strong influence upon society and the cultural forms of a society, but religion itself is no less affected by changes and pressures within society. Religion gives meaning to a pattern of living and may even be responsible for establishing a certain lifestyle or distinctive social organisation or institution. At the same time, religion o

Given the problems of devising a succinct definition of religion, some contemporary scholars have produced broader profiles of religion without claiming to identify one distinguishing characteristic. One example of this kind of approach is the seven-dimensional model of religion proposed by Ninian Smart, a specialist in the study of world religions. Smart argues that, if his model is adequate, ‘then we do not need to worry greatly about further definition of religionâ€™ (Smart, 1989, p

We are beginning to see that many of the assumptions we hold about the characteristics of ‘religionâ€™ are given to us by the society we live in or by our immediate community, which for some people may be a religious community. Don't lose sight of your assumptions about religion. At this point, it may be that you have not thought much about them before, or you may be personally hostile to religion, or be approaching this unit from the standpoint of a very specific, personal religious c

It's that special day in the week again. People begin to gather, set apart by their passionate convictions and the symbols that bind them together. Some stand by and scoff but the like-minded take strength from each other and stride proudly on, indifferent to those who do not share their commitment. For those caught up since birth (the less sympathetic might say ‘indoctrinatedâ€™) by their elders' commitment and enthusiasm, this is the climax of their week.

9.00 Introduction to Psychology (MIT)
This course surveys questions about human behavior and mental life ranging from how you see to why you fall in love. The great controversies: nature and nurture, free will, consciousness, human differences, self and society. Students are exposed to the range of theoretical perspectives including biological, evolutionary, cognitive, and psychoanalytic.
