Transcript: Public Reason and the Availability of Truth Acknowledgments He wants to strengthen public reason from external criticisms. A disposition of citizens: (1) willingness to propose claims acceptable to others (2) Treat fellow citizens as free and equal (3) Accept the consequences of the burdens of judgement The truth-apt activities of public reason can rely upon this internal use of the truth predicate in order to make sense of their validity. Available Claims in Public Reason Ex. "It is true that law x is unjust." - As an internal claim, the example relies on an accepted framework (a political conception of justice). - These types of truth claims adhere to the constraints as they are limited in their range. (Their use is not intended to change the framework of justice already in place) a. The Constraints: Justificatory considerations are political. Reasonable as External Duty of civility requires it An essential feature of democratic society b. Internal Claims: Internal claims take a particular framework as given, they can not be made before the acceptance of a framework. Cohen's Political Conception of Truth Assume (a) Assume (b) 'Reasonableness': Standard of correctness for political justification. 'Political Conception of Justice': responds to the fact of `reasonable pluralism,' is freestanding, and is the focus of an `overlapping consensus.' Attitudes: Truth is the norm governing belief, assertion, and judgement If we take the political conception of truth to be an internal claim then public reason can make sense of the validity of its own claims. Public reason can already make sense of the validity of its own claims. Therefore Cohen requires further justification or motivation to include the political conception of truth. Correspondence: True beliefs correspond to how things are but not in any mind independent sense. - There is a limited range of application that characterizes the judgements, claims, and reasons that can be appealed to in public reason. - justification can not be on the grounds of comprehensive doctrines. (they have broad scope of application qua grounds) Truth & Political Justification: Must be in terms acceptable to all "reasonable' points of view. Why favor reasonableness as a standard? The Political Conception of Truth as External Contrast: Truth is distinct from warrant but not in any substantive sense. - judgements appealing to such justification then aim at the truth about justice in a controversial, philosophical sense. - this is restricted in light of political liberalism's commitment to propose and honor fair terms of cooperation. (The duty of reciprocity can not be maintained) Introduces the political conception of truth Political Conception of Truth Public reason's avoidance of a standard of truth is not justified by its central aims. A political conception of truth is acceptable. The political conception of truth is necessary for public reason to make sense of the validity of its own judgements and claims. Non-metaphysical Is truth available? Not designed to restrict liberty of conscience 1. If Cohen's political conception of truth resolves the discrepancy between truth and public reason then it is either (a) an internal claim or (b) an external claim. 2. In either case of (a) or (b) Cohen's political conception of truth is unsatisfactory on its own terms. C: Therefore Cohen's political conception of truth does not resolve the discrepancy between truth and public reason as is intended by its introduction into political liberalism. If the political conception of truth is used as an external claim then it is outside the constraints entailed by the standard of correctness for public reason. Cohen argues that the political conception of truth entails such constraints. Therefore it can not be an external claim. The Argument Responsibility of citizens: Moral responsibility Epistemic responsibility Reasonableness The reason of citizens - endorsement of a political conception of justice. - agreement in the form of overlapping consensus - necessary for political legitimacy -allows for reasonable disagreement It is reasoning addressed to others in their capacity as citizens When acting from public reason, legal acts are legitimate even though they may not be just Value: Truth is valuable in a way warrant is not. (The duty to be able to explain to one another how the principles they advocate can be supported by the political values of public reason.) I am grateful to Nick Alvarez, Aaron Bentley, John Gotti, Emily Lobsinger, Mike Nishkian, Patrick Smith, and Jeuel Wilkerson for all of their support, philosophical insight and overall encouragement. Their friendship is inexorably entwined with my philosophical growth. I'd like to acknowledge and thank Carlos Montemayor, Jennifer Montgomery, Kevin Toh, and Shelley Wilcox for their continued support and dedication of time through feedback, advice, and guidance.

Transcript: Throughout the book, The Taming of the Shrew by William Shakespeare, Katherine started off with being the outcast and going against the rules set by society. She had a personality that the majority of men would generally have. As a result, her only suitor was someone who was able to change her to conform to society. Secondary Source Breaking the norm In the book, Katherine is portrayed as a female, who is much more similar to a man than a woman. She is described as ill tempered, confident, loud and aggressive. This was seen from the way guys spoke about her. "Her name is Katherine Minola, Renowned in Padua for her scolding tongue (Act 1, Sc 2, 100-101). Hortensio said this about Katherine in front of Petruchio, to warn him about who she is. This is a topic guys would not usually discuss because the majority of women during the 16th century were well behaved, unlike Katherine. Primary quote #3 The film “I am ashamed that women are so simple To offer war where they should kneel for peace; Or seek for rule, supremacy and sway, When they are bound to serve, love and obey.… Then vail your stomachs, for it is no boot, And place your hands below your husband's foot: In token of which duty, if he please, My hand is ready; may it do him ease (Act 5, Sc 2, 177-195).” This was said by her, as she gave up her individualism for her husband. She fell for the trap and could not do anything but obey and turn herself into the person that she never would have wanted, if Petruchio never came into her life. "When a woman, like Katherina, disregarded society's expectations for her and, in essence, acted like a man—she takes advantage of male privileges like speaking freely and doing as she wishes—Katherina disrupts the clearly defined order represented by the chain, and hence, others view her as a threat to order and stability." "Guys were afraid of getting in contact with her because she was out of control... Though after spending time with Kat, he began to form feelings for her. She became less aggressive. She wasn’t afraid to express her pleasure of having him around his life. This was depicted during the scene, which she recited her poem in front of the class, after the dreadful event that had happened a night before. She realized that Pat was the one, that she wanted nothing more but his existence in her life." It only took one person to alter the way she thought. This was meant to be because, they were both seen as a threat towards their environment. Thesis defense presentation Thesis Statement Another way that she fell under the category of an outcast was after the way she acted towards her father when Katherine figured out that there were suitors ready to marry Bianca. "You have but jested with me all this while. I prithee, sister Kate, untie my hands [Katherine] strikes her (Act 2, Sc1, 20-21). Katherine showed aggression towards her sister, after trying her hand, while attempting to get answers out of her, she made the decision to hit her as well! This is definitely one of the least favorite characteristic of a woman. She was never soft and she did what she wanted to do. "But when the three bridegrooms square off in a betting contest to prove which husband garners the proper respect from his wife, Petruchio wins. Kate carries out his commands with alacrity as she masterfully drives the outraged "froward wives" onstage—"prisoners," as Petruchio puts it, "to her womanly persuasion." No one dares to interrupt when, in the longest speech awarded to any character in the play, Kate labels the recalcitrant wives "froward and unable worms" and lectures them on seemly behavior. Speaking for the establishment, Kate can at last speak to her heart's content." "People never really expected Kat to accommodate with the guideline of the culture. It took a special person to persuade her into becoming the girl that everyone would adore." Primary Quote #1 Favorite excerpt Conformity Primary Quote #2 Sloan, LaRue.

Transcript: How does the Online Forum Structure Mediate That Process? A Case Study in Brief -It stems from the legendary belief that in the old days a white belt became black from the sweat, blood, and dirt of years of hard training. "it seems like there are always posts about which techniques you shouldn't use on classmates, washing belt debates, or something else to learn from. Therefore, I didn’t need to ask anything in person." The structure of the forum also allowed him to bypass some of the obstacles present in person, such as the embarrassment of asking a "stupid question." The Short Answer Is Yes Yes. Genesis of a Thesis: -This creates an Ideological conflict between health and tradition in the grappling community. Independent Study: Here Mukhtar was able to access resources that allowed him to define his place in the community as a belt washer. Seeing the different viewpoints and values expressed in debates on the forum (tradition vs hygiene) helped him develop his own stance. Enter The Grappling Forum Mark Smith -Identity Construction is Distributed across different groups, spaces, and platforms. -Transfer between online and offline spaces occurs frequently. Identities developed online are used offline, and of course the reverse is true as well. -Forums are an excellent source of Identity Resources. -People use forums Intentionally in order to address specific needs or desires, not just for recreation. Grappling Arts and Belt Washing: Vygotsky: Sisters playing "Sister" -Whether to wash one's belt is an ongoing debate in the martial arts community -Identity Resources and Trajectories (Nasir/Cooks) Eventual Research Question: Thank You! -Positioning oneself in relation to this debate is an early moment of identity construction for many martial artists. Intitial Research Question: Distributed Cognition: "Can you construct or modify an identity to serve specific purposes?" Lave, Wenger, and Cain: Alcoholics Anonymous Community Belt Background: -Enhanced Cognition Through the use of Constructs (Vygotsky) Learning to Be: Identity Construction Do People Do Identity Construction Work on Online Forums? How do People Access Identity Resources on Online Forums? Mukhtar and the Dirty Belt: -Identity as an Aspect of the Surround (Lave/Wenger) Brought to you by "It was helpful to have read about the belt washing before there were any conversations in my classes. I already had made up my mind and was able to explain to classmates why they should wash their belts too." Mukhtar was also able to transfer his online progress into an offline scenario, using the resources he got from the forum to position himself as an informed and contributing member of the community. Mukhtar: "I was not aware of what kinds of nasty items lived on the mats since I was very new to bjj. Once I read about it [on the forum] I made my decision." -Practice-linked Identity Construction in an Online Community (Korobkova) In Online Communities Mukhtar's Belt Washing Adventure Exemplifies Some Key Findings: -Superstitious martial artists believe that washing their belt will "wash away their skills" and/or bring bad luck. -Ceding the Executive to an Aspect of the Surround (Perkins) -Hygiene is much more critical in grappling systems due to the risk of skin infections Story Time: Redux -Gating Features and "semi-nonymous" Communities (Zhao)

How gender politics and inequalities are reflected in the student category film entries of CINEMAGIS – 4th Digital film Festival in Northern Mindanao? 3. Are short films an effective media for presenting women and their roles in the society? We believe that there is a need to create a study about women to generate an equal environment for both men and women. Thus the objectives of the study is to conclude the portrayal of women in the films as related to the perspectives of society by using the different theories as to support such inferences. Conceptual Framework Theoretical Framework Film Criticism Theory Cultural Poetics Theory allow assessing on how effective the short films in terms of influencing the viewers and their own perspectives of the women in short films A brief Review of Literature Films reflect and reinforce the dominant ideology, and this applies to how women are shown in films. (Gregor, 1993). Women films were popular in the 1930s and early 1940s, when women were shown as wanting to gain independence from their families, and trying to experience true romantic love. (Ksmith, 2008). Feminist film critics also will consider the whole structure of the film, aside from the content, including spectatorship, the look, the role of the gaze and identification (Lewis, 1998). Scope and Limitations This study is limited to the short films of Cinemagis and the female individuals that are involved in the films This study is limited to the short films of Cinemagis and the female individuals that are involved in the films object of sexuality victims Analysis of Data The form serves as the instrument that evaluates and measures the women’s overall score based on the six (6) six films that are dependent on the content that the researchers have formulated as follows: A - Sexual Perspective D - Professionalism B – Participation E – Language Abuse C – Performance F – Violence Content Reader-response Theory Rationale Research Design: The researchers studied about the content analysis of the Role of Women in Short films in 2012 Cinemagis Category Feminist Theory WOMEN AND THEIR ROLES IN THE SOCIETY ARE REFLECTED IN CINEMAGIS – 4TH DIGITAL FILM FESTIVAL IN NOTHERN MINDANAO Gender Theory very good in social skills artist And to determine what kind of woman would that be.
