Cultures du numérique by Antonio Casilli

By Antonio Casilli

Ce numéro de Communications suggest un landscape des études francophones portant sur les expériences ayant mis les applied sciences de l'information et de los angeles verbal exchange au centre du changement culturel et social. Les réseaux numériques, l'informatique ubiquitaire et l. a. prolifération des bases de données affectent nos modalités de coexistence. Les usages technologiques actuels influencent non seulement les differences des pratiques communicationnelles et productives, mais également l'émergence de nouvelles définitions de soi, de nouvelles events d'interaction sociale, de phénomènes politiques inédits. L'élargissement de ce champ de réflexion incite à aborder le numérique en convoquant les apports d'un huge éventail de disciplines suitable des sciences humaines et sociales : sociologie, philosophie, droit, économie, esthétique, sciences de los angeles verbal exchange. Les contributions présentées dans les pages qui suivent visent non seulement à circonscrire un domaine d'investigation, mais aussi à former des vocations de recherche dans ledit domaine. L'ambition est avant tout de représenter une référence los angeles plus complète attainable pour les chercheurs, enseignants et étudiants supérieurs tant des sciences humaines et sociales que des disciplines strategies et scientifiques. Afin d'aller à l. a. rencontre d'un lectorat de plus en plus intéressé par l'approfondissement de thématiques et de traditions de recherche encore insuffisamment explorées dans le contexte actuel, le choix a été fait d'adopter un structure « quasi encyclopédique », structuré en entrées disposées par ordre alphabétique.

The Mathematical Experience: Study Edition by Philip J. Davis

By Philip J. Davis

Winner of the 1983 National booklet Award!

"…a completely wonderful ebook concerning the Queen of Sciences, from which one gets a true feeling for what mathematicians do and who they're. The exposition is obvious and entire of wit and humor..." - the hot Yorker (1983 National publication Award edition)

Mathematics has been a human task for hundreds of thousands of years. but just a couple of humans from the big inhabitants of clients are specialist mathematicians, who create, train, foster, and observe it in quite a few events. The authors of this e-book think that it may be attainable for those expert mathematicians to provide an explanation for to non-professionals what they do, what they are saying they're doing, and why the area should still aid them at it. in addition they think that arithmetic could be taught to non-mathematics majors in the sort of approach as to instill an appreciation of the facility and sweetness of arithmetic. many of us from world wide have instructed the authors that they've performed accurately that with the 1st variation they usually have inspired book of this revised version entire with routines for aiding scholars to illustrate their figuring out. This variation of the e-book should still discover a new iteration of common readers and scholars who wish to recognize what arithmetic is all approximately. it is going to end up helpful as a direction textual content for a common arithmetic appreciation path, one within which the coed can mix an appreciation for the esthetics with a few pleasant and revealing applications.

The textual content is perfect for 1) a GE direction for Liberal Arts scholars 2) a Capstone path for point of view academics three) a writing direction for arithmetic lecturers. A wealth of customizable on-line direction fabrics for the publication may be bought from Elena Anne Marchisotto ( upon request.
