Transcript: The name of my charity/organization is the Livestrong Foundation, founded by famous cyclist and seven time Tour de France winner, Lance Armstrong. Armstrong created this organization in 1997, when he had found out that he had testicular cancer that had spread to his brain, lungs, and his abdomen, and didn’t yet know his fate; it was originally founded as the Lance Armstrong Foundation. The mission statement is “to inspire and empower” cancer patients. Celebrities Get Involved With Livestrong As of 2012, the Livestrong organization has helped 2.5 million people. Livestrong helps find new ways to raise awareness and increase outreach and facilitate collaboration in an effort to improve the cancer experience. Halle Berry Mark Wahlberg As of 2013, the non-profit organization gives 81% of the functional expenses to their programs 13% to fundraising, and 5% to administration; which equals out to a total $35,494,948. They give 54% of their program activities to education, the programs, and policy, 33% to grants, and 13% to advocacy and government relations; $28,878,892. Founder Lance Armstrong Famous people that are involved with Livestrong include: Halle Berry, Jay Leno, LaDainian Tomlinson, Will Smith, Michael Jordan, Mark Wahlberg, Matt Damon, and the late Robin Williams. Important reasons for you to volunteer as a 21st century citizen is: you can help make a difference in the world, you can learn a lot from volunteering, and that volunteering can help bring you closer to people and the community. LIVESTRONG logo By Seth Seebaugh 3rd Block Before I had cancer, I just lived. Now I live strong. - Lance Armstrong $1.25 In 2012, Lance Armstrong was caught for blood doping, which is the practice of boosting the number of red blood cells in the bloodstream in order to enhance athletic performance, and was stripped of all seven of his Tour de France titles; also being banned from cycling events for life. He resigned from his leadership role over Livestrong, but he still remains the organization’s largest donor; he created a legacy for the amount of progress he has helped create in the field of cancer survivorship.

Transcript: Any 'thing' is an object- whether living, non-living, artificial or conceptual. OOO asserts that objects do exist beyond the purview of human conception, and that this existence is almost entirely inaccessible to our understanding. OOO, unlike speculative realism, maintains the concept of finitude. Finitude is the state of having limits or boundaries, specifically in the idea of human philosophy. D.1.000 - How does OOO present itself in today's materialistic world? D.2.000 - Why are some objects regarded as more important than others? D.3.000 - Why is the Mona Lisa valued more than a tennis ball? D.4.000 - What does your toaster want? D.5.000 - Does an object remain that specific object when combined with another object? Q.1.000 - Is Architecture an object? A Hyperobject? Q.2.000 - Would you say OOO is about Humans vs. Non-humans or Animate vs. Inanimate objects? Q.3.000 - If we valued objects as much as we value humans would our world today be different? Q.4.000 - If we valued architecture as much as we value humans would our world today be different? Q.5.000 - Do you think contemporary architecture is designed using the philosophy of OOO or Kant's anthropocentrism? -Start of ontological investigation is between objects and relations -He believed in the Heideggerian terminology, coined by German Philosopher Martin Heidegger, "Zuhandenheit" -Harman's outlook being that everything is an object and all of these objects that exist are of equal importance. -Ontology starts with the humans relationship to the world. -Considers the world to be formulated and structured by human cognition. Kant Compound objects exist even when humans are not a part of it. Anthropocene objects are some objects in which humans are a necessary ingredient. Human/Non-human Animate/Inanimate Compound/Anthropocene Epistemology: a theory that physical matter is the only or fundamental reality and that all being and processes and phenomena can be explained as manifestations or results of matter. Discussion Topics/Questions Harman The theory of the nature and grounds of knowledge especially with reference to its limits and validity. Materialism: a particular theory about the nature of being or the kinds of things that have existence. Ontology: Objects are often referred to by different categories such as: Undermining is primarily used by the natural sciences. It concludes that objects are not deep enough themselves. One must find the deeper meaning of what an object is by finding out what is built of and defining it as such. "Ontology is the philosophical study of existence. Object-oriented ontology (“OOO” for short) puts things at the center of this study. Its proponents contend that nothing has special status, but that everything exists equally–plumbers, cotton, bonobos, DVD players, and sandstone, for example. In contemporary thought, things are usually taken either as the aggregation of ever smaller bits (scientific naturalism) or as constructions of human behavior and society (social relativism). OOO steers a path between the two, drawing attention to things at all scales (from atoms to alpacas, bits to blinis), and pondering their nature and relations with one another as much with ourselves." - Ian Bogost Architecture as an Object Preservation of Finitude There are two principle ways you can devalue objects: undermining and overmining. The branch of philosophy that deals with the first principles of things, including abstract concepts such as being, knowing, substance, cause, identity, time, and space. Metaphysics exisists to answer two basic questions; 1) Ultimately, what is there? 2) What is it like? Critique of Correlationism Kristen Anderson, Reed Freeman, Chris Michelangelo Undermining and Overmining To be clear, we are not saying that architecture's human element is its most fundamental, as that would contradict OOO ideologies. We are arguing that the formation of the object called 'architecture' includes humans in the sense that: Humans + an idea = architecture. Metaphysics: Harman vs. Kant Overmining is used by the social sciences. They state that objects are not too shallow to be understood they are too deep to be understood. They speak of objects in generalizations. Objects are what they are currently doing. It cannot explain potential. Classification Metaphysics: Anthropocentrism: Like the prefix suggests, anthropocentrism is the belief that humans are the most important entity in the universe. It interprets the world in terms of human experiences and values. "the idea according to which we only ever have access to the correlation between thinking and being, and never to either term considered apart from the other." A simplification for non-philosophers Architecture, like art, can be seen as an anthropocene object. Its human element is intrinsically tied to it. Architecture without humans would not exist. Object-Oriented Ontology Immanuel Kant (1724-1804) One of the most influential philosophers in history due to his Graham
