Nihilism and Technology

According to Dr Nolen Gertz, Assistant Professor of Applied Philosophy, there is a tendency in technological production called the “leisure-as-liberation” model of technological design.  In this lecture, he will outline how it has evolved from Aristotle to Marx, to today. In addition, Gertz aims to demonstrate how Nietzsche would criticize the idea that we could find liberation through leisure and will introduce Don Ihde’s postphenomenology in order to set up parallels between Nietzsche’s human-nihilism relations and Ihde’s human-technology relations.

China in the Arctic: What does it mean for Canada?

Non-Arctic states have recently shown interest in the Arctic region, generating opportunities but also fear among Arctic states. Chinese activism in the region attracted the most attention, more negative than positive in Canada. The Chinese Road and Belt initiative, published last year, had an Arctic route as a maritime route to prioritize for future economic development. On other hand, China was a key actor in the agreement to suspend commercial fishing in Arctic international waters for the next 16 years.

La gouvernance arctique au-delà du Conseil de l’Arctique

Le Conseil d’Arctique est habituellement présenté comme le principal forum pour la coopération circumpolaire. Cependant, la coopération arctique n’a pas uniquement lieu au sein du Conseil : des événements de diverses natures (Northern Forum, Arctic Frontiers, Arctic Circle) ont rassemblé dans les dernières années les acteurs qui s’intéressent à l’Arctique.

Out of Fragility?

English

State fragility is widespread. Depending on the definition, up to half of all states are fragile and lack essential state capacities. They cannot provide basic services security, and participation in governance processes to citizens. State fragility also hinders economic development, weakens accountability and makes violent conflicts more probable.Once states become fragile, it is very likely that they become stuck in fragility. Yet, there are examples of countries finding ways out of fragility.
