Where do you come from?

The idea of defining immigrant, or formerly immigrant, communities by their ethnic origins or religion has supplanted any previous class or economic definitions. This is an invented story.

It would be disingenuous to look at what happened to former Reddit CEO Ellen Pao without factoring in endemic sexism and racism. ;‘Free speech’ has to mean a space where everyone is safe to speak.

How Walking Fosters Creativity: Stanford University Researchers Confirm What Philosophers & Writers Have Always Known. 
Image via Diego Sevilla Ruiz A certain Zen proverb goes something like this: 'A five year old can understand it, but an 80 year old cannot do it.' The subject of this riddle-like saying has been described as 'mindfulness'---or being absorbed in the moment, free from routine mental habits.

Sur la question de la violence chez les humains, deux conceptions radicalement opposées s’affrontent. Le philosophe anglais du XVIIe siècle Thomas Hobbes pensait que la « guerre de tous contre tous » existait depuis l’aube des temps (Léviathan, 1651). Pour Jean-Jacques Rousseau, l’homme sauvage était sujet à peu de passions et a été entraîné dans « le plus horrible état de guerre » par la « société naissante » (Discours sur l’origine et les fondements de l’inégalité parmi les hommes, 1755).

La violence humaine est-elle innée ou induite par le contexte ? Les recherches anthropologiques et archéologiques permettent aujourd'hui de répondre un peu mieux à cette question qui divisa les plus grands philosophes.

The Real Threat Posed by Powerful Computers 

if the human race is at peril from killer robots, the problem is probably not artificial intelligence. It is more likely to be artificial stupidity. The difference between those two ideas says much about how we think about computers.

Greece’s Surrender: A Return to 1919, or to 1905?
 
Two weeks ago, Greeks voted down an offer that they thought would trap them in austerity. Now the parliament has accepted a package that is at least as severe.

An Animated Introduction to Haruki Murakami, Japan’s Jazz and Baseball-Loving Postmodern Novelist. 
Ilana Simons' 'About Haruki Murakami'—a short video introduction to the jazz bar owning, marathon running, Japanese novelist—puts you in mind of Richard Linklater's Waking Life, then the elliptical, lucid dream narration may do so even more. 'He didn't use too many words,' Simons tells us.
