Abstract

In 1911, Alfred North Whitehead has a brainstorm: if we deny the reality of the instant, many problems of the philosophy of nature seem solved. His metaphysics, however, will wait until his moving to Harvard, in 1924, to mature. Besides his denial of the instants of time and the replacement of the concept of time by that of “process,” Whitehead articulates new concepts (concrescence, prehension) to account for the crystallization of successive empirical realities, the solidarity between events, the permanence of objects, and their deterministic behavior altogether. His views of nature fit well with both quantum mechanics and relativity theories, although not in the details of the latter. But one of his largely unnoticed merits, in my view, is to reopen the question of free will in the mind-body problem.

Abstract

In the last decade, we have noted increasing interest in animation from students diagnosed with autism. This article depicts the particular case of the Animation Department at Loyola Marymount University, where college students diagnosed with autistic syndrome disorder (asd) talk about patience, focus, and collaboration, and voice their opinions about their attraction to animation and how it has played an important role in their lives.
