PENSAR CON OTROS, La Era de la Posverdad - Las palabras y las cosas, Capitulo 1- THINKING WITH OTHERS: A survival guide in times of post-truth

Guadalupe Nogués

Languages: Spanish, Castilian

DOI: 10.17160/josha.7.2.631

Below is the introduction, preface and first chapter of the book Pensar con otros. Una guía de supervivencia en tiempos de posverdad (Thinking with others. A survival guide in times of post-truth), published in 2018. A book that aims to be a starting point to break down post-truth into its main components through concrete examples, as a way to better prepare ourselves to identify the structures that foster post-truth and thus achieve, together, survival and victory. Post-truth allows facts to become facts as long as they fit the desires of each group, of each tribe. Each of these groups develops its own narrative with a language that privileges the capacity to provoke emotions, and pushes those emotions to build landscapes only accessible to those who share the way of looking at them. This discontinuity in the landscape is a threat to the existence and development of meaningful human bonds, to our coexistence as a species on this planet and, thus, to our survival.

There is local research which evidenced that the use of current schemes is associated with subtherapeutic serum levels. Looking at factors that influenced creatinine's serum levels, body mass index (BMI) and the therapeutic scheme used. In this prospective study made in a third level hospital.

Reason must be the faculty that provides the principles of knowledge a priori; with it, the human being has the capacity of rising, with the autonomy to judge about itself and its surroundings without delegating its own criteria to anyone. This writing glimpses the near danger that the human will experience unless he makes continuous use or exercises his superior faculties of the soul." Sapere Aude" is the Latin locution that urges the human being to think for himself; however, is a man conscious that there must be a frivolity of thought that delays his society? Among so many adversities, technology with its progress result disturbing if its dominance reins over the will and thought of man; However, intuition must be key to placing this in a reality where one can have objective conscious of what exists. The technological advances are innovations that alter reality in a positive and negative way according to its purpose.

DEMETRIOS PRIZE 2019! La migración como tema en el cine latinoamericano - Migration as a theme in Latin American cinema. Border between Mexico and the United States.

María Fernanda Sandoval Cabrera

Languages: Spanish, Castilian

DOI: 10.17160/josha.6.7.585

One of the winners, Venezuelan María Fernanda Sandoval Cabrera, presents her thesis questioning the real work of the media today around the illegal migration on the U.S.-Mexico border. In addition to the fact that migration is a current topic of great interest around the world, cinema also includes other critical content of great interest in the field of communication. However, in terms of the dissemination of both positive and negative information, as well as truthful and misleading information, it is possible to comment that today's audiovisual media function persuasively as creators of social opinions and, consequently, as a stereotyping entity of the masses.

DEMETRIOS PRIZE 2019! Tortura: permisibilidad, mundo real y legislación - Torture: permissibility, real world and legislation

Federico Abal

Languages: Spanish, Castilian

DOI: 10.17160/josha.6.7.584

one of the winners, Federico Abal, presents the torture known as one of the actions considered morally aberrant and unacceptable. It often refers to the prohibition of this practice as an illustration of the type of rights that all people have for the sole reason that they are tortured and that must be respected. Despite this negative assessment of torture, expressed masterfully in the anecdote of the anarchist comrade, the debate over its moral permissibility has been revitalized in recent decades. In his thesis, the author addresses this and other problems related to the contemporary debate on torture. From the analysis offered in these three chapters he concludes that torture is an immoral prima facie practice, that it can be morally justifiable in exceptional cases and that, by virtue of such exceptionality, it is not reasonable to incur in legal reforms such as those proposed by the institutionalist model.

DEMETRIOS PRIZE 2019! El pathos trágico en el joven Nietzsche - The tragic pathos in the young Nietzsche. Art and Life according to The Birth of Tragedy

Joaquín Emanuel Campodónico Gómez

Languages: Spanish, Castilian

DOI: 10.17160/josha.6.7.583

Campodonico as one of the Winners, From Argentina, present his work showing an interesting perspective of tragic. The author's research concludes based on the movement of a concept that is used for exegetical purposes in the interpretation of much of The Birth of Tragedy. As we have seen, it is coupled with enormous success in the argument of the book. Therefore, the importance of art for the young Nietzsche greatly transcends his relationship with Richard Wagner, as well as his appropriation and reinterpretation of many Schopenhaurian ideas and, moreover, the historical moment of Germany at the end of the 19th century. For Nietzsche, art is something so significant that it cannot be subject to the impression of a moment - even a stage in his life. We have argued that the complexity of the book on tragedy proves that it is the product of long years of meditation, analysis, discovery, and experience on the part of the professor in Basel.
