See detailL’humanité comme vide symbolique : lecture croisée de Emmanuel Kant et de Claude Lefort
Lefort, Elisabeth UL

Si notre situation symbolique et politique actuelle se définit comme celle de la perte des derniers repères de la certitude, l’idée kantienne d’une histoire universelle, c’est-à-dire d’un dessein de la nature qui guiderait le dessein personnel de chacun, semble au premier abord désuète. Dans un contexte où tout absolutisme axiologique semble impossible, l’idée d’un mouvement sourd et immanent, qui pousserait l’humanité vers « une unification politique parfaite », apparaît comme une croyance datée. Et pourtant, l’opuscule kantien, Idée d’une histoire universelle au point de vue cosmopolitique, en prenant en compte les particularismes sans renoncer à l’idée universelle d’humanité, est d’une actualité cruciale, parce qu’il relève le défi imposé par la Modernité politique : celui de penser une voie philosophique intermédiaire, entre le Charybde qu’est l’absolutisme axiologique, et le Scylla qu’est le nihilisme. C’est ce que la présente étude voudrait mettre à jour en croisant l’opuscule kantien, avec la philosophie politique de Claude Lefort. [less ▲]

Digital technologies may impact the practices of historians at every stages of their research, from retrieving archives, building a corpus to writing and editing. Digital tools have influenced spaces for scientific dialogue and free flow of ideas within the historians' community. As such, Digital Humanities are challenging the shaping of history, but they could also become an object of history. Therefore, we will analyse such an hybridization that may enrich our field of study. [less ▲]

Am Spuenesche Biergerkrich vun 1936-1939 hunn déi Kräften, déi d'Republik géint eng nationalistesch Iwwernahm wollte verteidegen, och international u Fräiwëlleger appelléiert, fir si ze ënnerstëtzen. Ënner dësen internationale Spueniekämpfer waren och vill jiddesch Männer. Nom Zweete Weltkrich krut dësen Engagement eng nei Bedeitung an der Diskussioun ëm déi angeblech jiddesch Passivitéit géinteniwwer der antisemitischer Verfolgung an Hitlerdäitschland. D'Renée Wagener schwätzt mam Gerben Zaagsma vun der Uni Lëtzebuerg iwwer seng Fuerschung zu dësem Thema. [less ▲]

"De Mediewëssenschaftler Tim van der Heijden huet am Kader vum Projet "Changing Platforms of Ritualized Memory Practices: The Cultural Dynamics of Home Movies" d'Geschicht vum Amateurfilm recherchéiert. Dëse Projet kuckt sech de sougenannten Home Movie vum Ufank vun der Kamera 1895 bis d'Opkomme vun der digitaler Medieplattform YouTube 2005 un. Dobäi huet de van der Heijden sech besonnesch op Phas vum technologesche Wiessel konzentréiert a konstatéiert, datt sech net nëmmen d'Instrument ännert mat deem de private Filmemacher schafft, mee esou guer d'Aart a Weis, wéi sech erënnert gëtt. D'Danièle Wecker ënnerhält sech mam Tim van der Heijden iwwer Verännerungen am private Film." [less ▲]

As a follow-up to the CoRobots project presented within the framework of the exhibition Eppur si muove (July 2015-Jan 2016), two research teams in social sciences and in robotics share joint reflections on human-robot interaction. In our presentation, we analyze a case of situated communication between a robot and a visitor of the exhibition and raise the question whether robots and humans can engage in dialogue. Furthermore, we show how the analysis can support the work of roboticians designing social robots. We address these questions by relying on multi-screen video captures of a visitor playing games with a humanoid robot. The current interdisciplinary work is used as a base for further research and development on the interactions between robots and visitors within the context of the Ville de Luxembourg museums.

Humor styles have been found to be associated with well-being, however, no study has addressed the distinct well-being associations of combinations of humor styles, that is, humor types, yet. The present study thus aimed at investigating which combinations of humor styles exist and to which extent these humor types are associated with well-being. In an online questionnaire, the Humor Styles Questionnaire (HSQ, Martin et al. J Res Pers 37:48–75, 2003), self-regulatory strategies, self-esteem, and well-being instruments were administered to a German sample. Exploratory and confirmatory factor analyses replicated the underlying structure of the HSQ. With hierarchical clustering, we found evidence for three humor types (endorsers, humor deniers, and self-enhancers), which differed in group means for self-esteem, self-regulatory strategies, and well-being. Findings provide further evidence for the positive well-being correlates of self-enhancing humor, and distinctly address the positive correlates of aggressive and self-defeating humor being absent. It is discussed that humor styles cannot be conceptualized as beneficial or detrimental per se, but have to be regarded in context. [less ▲]

Biological wastewater treatment plants (BWWTPs) based on the activated sludge (AS) pro- cess have dramatically improved worldwide water sanitation despite increased urbanization and industrialization. However, current AS-based operations are considered economically and environmentally unsustainable. In this Perspective, we discuss our current understanding of microbial populations and their metabolic transformations in AS-based BWWTPs in view of developing more sustainable processes in the future. In particular, much has been learned over the course of the past 25 years about specialized microorganisms, which could be more comprehensively leveraged to recover energy and/or nutrients from wastewater streams. To achieve this, we propose a bottom-up design approach, focused around the concept of a “wastewater biorefinery column”, which would rely on the engineering of distinct ecological niches into a BWWTP in order to guarantee the targeted enrichment of specific organismal groups which in turn will allow the harvest of high-value resources from wastewater. This concept could be seen as a possible grand challenge to microbial ecologists and engineers alike at the centenary of the discovery of the AS process. [less ▲]
