Historia de la Literatura Griega

Historia de la Literatura Griega

Author: Rafael Carrion Arias Format: Hardback Release Date: 30/06/2020

El libro que aqui presentamos esta dirigido tanto al estudioso de la literatura y de la antiguedad en general, como al especialista en la filosofia nietzscheana en particular. Se trata del primer monografico dedicado a un texto de gran importancia en el corpus nietzscheano: las lecciones de F. Nietzsche acerca de la Historia de la literatura griega (Vorlesungen uber Geschichte der griechischen Literatur I/II y III), resultado de sus ultimos anos de docencia en Basel y que en palabras de su primer editor Otto Crusius es la quintaesencia de las clases teoricas y practicas anteriormente impartidas. El destino del legado postumo del filosofo habia dificultado hasta ahora un acceso critico a dichos materiales. Su reciente edicion y traduccion critica, sin embargo, ha empezado a posibilitar por fin el analisis pormenorizado de lo que ellos contienen. El lector encontrara en este estudio una moneda de doble valor: pues con el podra ganar conocimientos muy valiosos acerca de metodologias para el estudio de la literatura, de obras y autores de la antiguedad, asi como un acceso exclusivo al laboratorio nietzscheano previo a su etapa de madurez. Se trata de una investigacion altamente original, que descubre un periodo apenas conocido pero fundamental en la gestacion del pensamiento nietzscheano y que en su exposicion organica pone en serio cuestionamiento varias de las constantes instauradas en la Nietzscheforschung aun a dia de hoy.

Understanding and Improving Information Search

Understanding and Improving Information Search

Author: Wai Tat Fu Format: Hardback Release Date: 30/05/2020

This edited book adopts a cognitive perspective to provide breadth and depth to state-of-the-art research related to understanding, analyzing, predicting and improving one of the most prominent and important classes of behavior of modern humans, information search. It is timely as the broader research area of cognitive computing and cognitive technology have recently attracted much attention, and there has been a surge in interest to develop systems and technology that are more compatible with human cognitive abilities. Divided into three interlocking sections, the first introduces the foundational concepts of information search from a cognitive computing perspective to highlight the research questions and approaches that are shared among the contributing authors. Relevant concepts from psychology, information and computing sciences are addressed. The second section discusses methods and tools that are used to understand and predict information search behavior and how the cognitive perspective can provide unique insights into the complexities of the behavior in various contexts. The final part highlights a number of areas of applications of which education and training, collaboration and conversational search interfaces are important ones. Understanding and Improving Information Search - A Cognitive Approach includes contributions from cognitive psychologists, information and computing scientists around the globe, including researchers from Europe (France, Netherlands, Germany), the US, and Asia (India, Japan), providing their unique but coherent perspectives to the core issues and questions most relevant to our current understanding of information search behavior and improving information search.
