Understanding the Russian mindset
Support CaspianReport through Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/CaspianReport One of the very foundations of political science is the principle that geography determines destiny. In the same way that the British Isles determined the naval culture, and the frontier affected the American culture, Russia too, can be defined by its geographic characteristics. The most obvious element of Russia's geography is its enormous size. However, the truth is that Russia's size is both an advantage as well as a liability. The very core of the Russian Federation, the Moscow region, is simply indefensible. There are no mountainous ranges; no rivers or oceans, there are no swamps or deserts. Only the forests of Moscow and the inhospitable climate can be defined as geographic obstacles. The only thing the Russians can do in event of an invasion is to drag out the war and bleed the enemy out. It is for this reason that Russia's history is largely about surviving invasion after invasion. These centuries long experiences left a deep mark in the Russian culture and psychology, and due to these experiences the Russian leadership became obsessed with security and survival.

[TEASER] Muslim World or Europe? Where did the Scientific Revolution begin
Our modern world is constructed on the foundations of science and technology. For the most part when we talk about science, we are referring to modern science that arose out of Europe in the 16th century. Or did it? Historical accounts may surprise you! When the European Renaissance was in its infancy, it was thriving on the works of Muslim Scientific Revolution - The Golden Age of Islam. Modern Science essentially is an offspring of Islamic Science. More on this coming up Insha Allah !

European Foundation Statute - Are all member states behind it?
On 31 May 2013 representatives from the sector, academia as well as national and EU level public authorities discussed the new European legal form for foundations, the European Statute for foundations proposed by the European Commission in February 2012. This is the first time that foundations have their own in the legislative pipeline. While there is still room for improvement on some of the details of the draft text, foundations are clearly welcoming the proposal and working on clarifying open questions. All Member States must adopt the draft Regulation and several Member States have raised concerns but where do we stand now? Is communication between national legislators and the foundation sector working well -- how could it be improved? Moderator: ​John Coughlan, Academy of European Law Foundation, Pannellists: Jorge Carrera Domenech, Permanent Representation of Spain to the European Union, Søren Friis Hansen, Copenhagen Business School, Victor Kjær, Danish Business Authority, Evelyn Regner, Member of the European Parliament Discussions were be held during the EFC Annual General Assembly in Copenhagen.

A brief history of logic: Aristotle and deduction | Set Theory Math Foundations 251 | NJ Wildberger
In this video we begin to examine the history of logic from its early beginnings in ancient Greece, with the work of Parmenides, Zeno, Plato and then Aristotle. It was Aristotle who almost single handedly set out the modern theory of logic as it was to be for two thousand years until the modern European era. Aristotle is concerned with correct logical inference based on what are called syllogisms, and these have been categorized, and given amusing names by later writers. His aim was to strengthen dialectics, to assure correct deductions in arguments, and for logic to be an educational vehicle.

Tărtăria: The Tablets that could shake the foundations of the known History of Humanity
Although the legends consider the Atlanteans and Lemurians the protagonists of writing, modern science attributes this role to the Sumerians, who are believed to be the first to establish a writing pattern. However, the discovery of the tables of Tărtăria in the 60s was about to change the chronological order of the first writings forever, and even the cradle of the first known civilization in the world.

Greeks Romans Vikings The Founders Of Europe - Episode 1: The Greeks - History Documentary HD
Greeks Romans Vikings The Founders Of Europe - Episode 1: The Greeks - History Documentary HD. Ancient Greece, the cradle of modern Europe. Around 3000 years ago, the cultural foundations of western civilisation were laid right here, on the shores of the Mediterranean. It’s the birthplace of democracy, where great thinkers forged the beginnings of scientific reasoning, where theatre was turned into mass entertainment, and where the Olympic Games began. Imaginative animation, stunning visuals and an entertaining narrative combine in an extraordinary exploration of Greece and the rise of an ancient super-power that would leave a permanent mark on society. Good SBS documentary, from Germany, in German & Greek. Please be merciful with the parts where Greeks (who don't really look like Greeks but rather like Middle Easterns) speak German... :) ........................................................ The legacy of the Greeks is under assault today thus deserves defence and celebration for the simple reason that much of what we are is the result of that brilliant examination of human life first begun by the Greeks; as Jacob Burckhardt says, "We see with the eyes of the Greeks and use their phrases when we speak." We must listen to the Greeks not because they will give us answers, but because they first identified the questions and problems, and they knew too where the answers must come from: the minds of free human beings who have control over their own lives. And this, finally, is the greatest good we have received from the Greeks: the gift of freedom. The Greeks are accused by some of stealing their achievements from Egyptians and Babylonians, of oppressing their wives and daughters, and of hypocritically speculating about freedom while holding slaves. And that is the greatest irony: the spirit of criticism that among so many academics has fossilized into a pose has its origins nowhere but among the Greeks, who were the first to question critically everything from the gods to political power to their very selves, the first to live what Socrates called “the examined life”. As Victor Hanson and John Heath write, “Not one of the multicultural classicists really wishes to live under indigenous pre–Colombian ideas of government, Arabic protocols for female behaviour, Chinese canons of medical ethics, Islamic traditions of church and state, African approaches to science, Japanese ideas of race, Indian social castes, or Native American notions of private property.” Classic Greek culture has come under attack precisely because its achievement, extended into history, is what defines the West and makes it distinct. What is valuable in the much abused Western tradition, hence the examined life, the pursuit of truth, the dialogue about the place of the individual in the larger group, comes from the Greeks. Humanism, reason, the pursuit of knowledge and the arts, moderation and civic responsibility, all come from the Greeks. The failings of the Greeks, including not living up to their own ideals, are the failings of humanity everywhere. But their ideals, still alive today, led to the recognition of a common humanity that was more important than gender or social status, more profound than local or tribal affiliations. Without this insight, slavery might never have been abolished in the West, women might never have been granted equality, and the liberal notion that all humans possess innate rights merely as a virtue of being human would never have existed. (Bruce Thornton, “Greek Ways: How the Greeks Created Western Civilization”, 2002, "Defending the Greeks", Private Papers, 2005, Victor Davis Hanson, John Heath, “Who Killed Homer: The Demise of Classical Education and the Recovery of Greek Wisdom, 1998”)

Newton and Locke: Foundations of the Enlightenment (The Philosophes: Thinkers of the Enlightenment)
https://www.tomrichey.net/enlightenment.html In this first segment of my lecture on the philosophes (Enlightenment thinkers), I note the contributions of John Locke and Isaac Newton in laying the foundations for the Enlightenment. Although Locke and Newton lived before the Enlightenment, the philosophes relied heavily on their ideas. John Locke's social contract, which asserted that governments exist to protect individual liberty, was foundational for those who sought to advance freedom of thought in the eighteenth century. Isaac Newton's laws of physics, which outlined a rational universe governed by natural law, became popular with philosophes like Voltaire who wished to apply scientific principles to religion and society. Although Newton and Locke had come and gone by the time the Enlightenment hit Europe in full-swing, they gave the movement a starting point and a foundation that it would have otherwise lacked.

Research and social innovation: The potential for European foundations to pave the way
Foundations and their partners came together at the EFC Research Forum Stakeholders' conference on 9-10 February 2012 in Barcelona to explore how best to transform research solutions into social innovations. The conference entitled "Research and social innovation: The potential for European foundations to pave the way" comes at a time of unprecedented socio-economic and political turmoil, when the natural reflex may be to tighten belts. While this might seem sensible in the short term, it cannot come at the expense of investing in solutions for the future.
Building Democracy in Europe?  Feb 24, 2015
Date: Feb 24, 2015 Speaker: Dorota Dakowska, Associate Professor of Political Science at the University of Strasbourg The European Union’s enlargements have been analyzed mainly from the institutional and public policy perspective. The case of party political foundations invites us to shed light on the dimension of politics and the way in which the relations between political parties from Central-Eastern and Western Europe were established and managed. The international activity of German political foundations can be discussed through the lenses of democracy promotion in post-authoritarian regimes but also of network building and transnational transfers in the European political space. Dorota Dakowska is Associate Professor of Political Science at the University of Strasbourg (Sciences Po). Her recent book, Le pouvoir des fondations (2014), analyses the German political foundations system, their contribution to foreign policy and their involvement in the Central and Eastern European transitions. She has published on EU Eastern enlargement, transnational party cooperation, and how Germany and Poland deal with their communist past. Her current research focuses on higher education reforms, Europeanization and internationalization. This event is Part 5 of the 2014-15 Europe Seminar. The Europe Seminar brings scholars from North America, Europe, and the world to Columbia for intense talks on European history, politics, economics, and society.

A brief history of logic: from Leibniz to Boole | Math Foundations 254 | N J Wildberger
In the modern European era, medieval logic is replaced with new directions, motivated by an increased interest in systematizing reasoning. A prominent thinker in this direction is G. Leibniz, who applied his genius to, among many other things, the idea of a computing device and language that might allow systematic, even mechanical reasoning. In the 18th century, Euler, Lambert and Ploucquet introduced diagrams for representing logical relations. And then in the 19th century we move to more dramatic developments, largely due to the work of De Morgan and George Boole. We include some original work by Boole himself to get a sense of his thinking. This is when mathematics first intrudes on classical logic, presenting an algebraic approach to Aristotle's syllogisms, while both expanding the subject and restricting its interpretation to binary possibilities.

A brief History of Logic: Medieval and Arabic Logic | Math Foundations 253 | N J Wildberger
We examine how Aristotle's work on logic came to dominate both medieval and Arabic work on the subject. An important contributor to this development was Boethius (477-524 A.D) who translated Aristotle and made commentary on it. While the Dark Ages in Europe was not conducive to scientific or mathematical thought, the Islamic scholars based in Baghdad, Persia, Uzbekistan, and other places took up ancient Greek work as well as Hindu arithmetic, and developed both further. Included in these were thinkers al-Kindi and Avicenna, who explored modes of logic statements. Along similar lines, medieval logicians explored variants and more subtle aspects of Aristotle's logic, including Peter Abelard, William of Ockham and Jean Buridan.

Foundations and debates in anthropology
In this lecture on foundations and debates in anthropology, Dr. Paige West presents the history of anthropological ideas and investigations. She first defines epistemology as a framework for what we know and how we produce knowledge. She highlights how European exploration of the world as the start of systematic inquiry about other societies and cultures, and she notes that ideas about cultural evolution and the progression of social systems reflected Enlightenment ideas. She then focuses on the material and intellectual impacts of colonialism and imperialism, which were oriented toward bringing resources and knowledge from the world to the metropole, or the colonial capital. Critique of these approaches to understanding cultures led to the ethnographic turn in anthropology, which studies cultures in their own context. She ends with critiques of the concept of culture and cultural evolution to highlight the epistemological difference between colonial and anticolonial anthropology.

History of Science
The world of today – in which the building blocks of life are modified and rearranged for human purposes, heavy machines move effortlessly through air and space, and course descriptions are read on computer screens and can be accessed by anyone anywhere in the world at the click of a button – is unthinkable without science. Yet science (and its much-loved child, technology) did not spring into the world fully formed: it, like everything else, has a history. More importantly, the history of science is just one part of a broader history of the human endeavor to understand our universe and our place in it. This broader endeavor includes not only science, but also religion, literature, art, philosophy, and the study of history itself. This sequence is about this broader human endeavor with special reference to the history of science in Europe (from the Ancient Greeks to around 1850). Themes of the course will include the nature of knowledge, human nature, the relationship between scientific knowledge and other kinds of knowledge and belief, the impact of science and technology on ethics, politics, and the arts (and conversely), and the implications of changing methods and new results in science for our conceptions of ourselves and of the universe. The format of the course is lecture and discussion with occasional in-class group work and/or student presentations. The first semester explores the history, philosophy, literature, and arts of Europe in an integrated manner, emphasizing the history of science. Specifically, HNR 258 focuses on the historical development of science and some developments in European art beginning in Ancient Greece and then focusing on the period from 1400 – 1650, while HNR 259 focuses on philosophy and theology beginning with Ancient Greece, then concentrating on the period from 1400 – 1650. Together, the two courses work to develop a picture of the Ancient Greek and Medieval-Scholastic (so largely Christian) world-view that had come to dominate European thinking by the 1300s, of the subsequent upheavals brought about by the Renaissance and the Protestant Reformation, and of the beginnings of the Modern Scientific Period and its key breaks with the previous worldview, including new proposals in astronomy and anatomy, and new ways of thinking about the nature, foundations, and goals of science and scientific method. The courses emphasize writing, critical thinking, and research skills. The second semester continues to explore the history, philosophy, literature, and arts of Europe in an integrated manner, emphasizing the history of science. HNR 278 focuses on historical developments in science and the arts from 1650—1850, while HNR 279 focuses on philosophical, political, and cultural developments during the same period. Beginning with the mechanical philosophy of Rene Descartes and the scientific accomplishments of Isaac Newton, the two sections work together to trace the impact of these developments, as well as reactions to them and parallel developments, through the Enlightenment and Romantic periods, including the political and industrial revolutions. The courses emphasize writing, ethical and political reasoning, and some amount of group work and individual or group presentations.

Hot Topic 2018: Blockchain and distributed ledgers - Panel Discussion "Technology"
Blockchain and distributed ledgers: Will the reality live up to the hype? Will distributed ledger provide a ‘reset’ button for the internet and other networks? Many of the primary privacy risks prevalent today are due to an increasing centralization of information. A decentralized network is potentially more secure but not without its vulnerabilities. During this session, a panel of experts will illuminate how distributed ledgers work, discuss their potential and explore how the world of finance and other application areas could be reshaped. Cryptocurrencies and their escalating, volatile values have successfully captivated the public. However, the rise to fame has not brought a thorough understanding of the underlying technology along with it and distributed ledgers remain largely misunderstood. A better comprehension of the technology is increasingly vital due to its potential ramifications in finance and regarding privacy. Distributed ledgers could conceivably reshape finance through cryptocurrencies and smart contracts, cure data protection issues with social media and re-decentralize the internet. In short, a chance to hit the ‘reset’ button. Simultaneously, the very aspects that make distributed ledgers so promising are the same that make it vulnerable. Though replicability, immutability and being append-only are enormous strengths, they are equally large burdens when used maliciously. The Hot Topic was coordinated and will be moderated by Eva Wolfangel, European Science Writer of the Year 2018, a science journalist with over 15 years of experience covering a range of scientific issues and technological developments and highlighting their significance for the public. In order to unravel the technology behind distributed ledgers and its potential implications, Wolfangel has enlisted the help of experts with backgrounds ranging from academia to industry. Through discussions and an open debate, the speakers aim to distinguish the implausible from the practical and distill how the distributed ledgers will further influence our lives. Experts: Donald Kossmann is the director of the Microsoft Research Lab in Redmond. The Redmond Lab does research in all core areas of computer science. In his research, he works on data management in the cloud. His goal is to make data in the cloud cheaper, more valuable, and more secure. Roman Matzutt and Martin Henze are working as researchers in the field of security and privacy of communication and distributed systems at RWTH Aachen University. Their recent research focuses on the technical foundations and optimizations of blockchains and distributed ledger technology as well as their implications for users. C. Mohan has been an IBM researcher for 36 years in the database and related areas. The IBM Fellow and former IBM India Chief Scientist is currently focused on Blockchain, Big Data and HTAP technologies. Silvio Micali is an ACM A.M. Turing Award laureate who has been on the MIT faculty since 1983, in the Electrical Engineering and Computer Science Department, where he is Ford Professor of Engineering.  This video is also available on another stream: https://hitsmediaweb.h-its.org/Mediasite/Play/412dcc0ba7ea428a8ccff2f375b3fa961d?autoStart=false&popout=true The opinions expressed in this video do not necessarily reflect the views of the Heidelberg Laureate Forum Foundation or any other person or associated institution involved in the making and distribution of the video.

Cirm: an all-in-one venue for total scientific immersion
ESTABLISHED IN 1981 BY THE FRENCH MATHEMATICAL SOCIETY, CIRM IS MEETING NEW CHALLENGES AND STRENGTHENING ITS ALREADY SOLID FOUNDATIONS The Centre International de Rencontres Mathématiques (CIRM) is quite a unique place. Situated on the doorstep of the Calanques National Park, a famous nature reserve in the South of France, the aim of this Centre is to offer the best welcome to researchers from around the world. Scientists can work together, exchange ideas, share their knowledge and advance the key issues of their discipline. They can also develop ambitious projects with the other sciences and pass on their knowledge and findings to young researchers and doctoral students. CIRM, often known as ‘Luminy’, the campus where it is situated, is a nursery for talent, a mathematical melting pot. A particular feature of the centre is its residential quality. With CIRM’s dedicated team on hand to take care of their needs, researchers can focus exclusively on their scientific projects. Combining excellence with a quality venue Jointly managed by the SMF French Mathematical Society and by the CNRS National Center for Scientific Research, CIRM works in partnership with Aix-Marseille University and with the French Ministry for Higher Education and Research. It is one of the leading mathematics centres in terms of visitors. An international scientific board monitors the quality of the events organized and selects the recipients of the Jean-Morlet Chair, created in 2013. CIRM is also a key partner in two Research Departments of Excellence in France: Carmin and Archimède and an active member of international networks such as the European Research Centres On Mathematics (ERCOM). Increasing its capacity and enhancing its scientific policy As a well-known centre for worldwide mathematicians, CIRM welcomes over 3,500 visitors annually. The number of excellent proposals received each year is very high and, in order to respond to this growing popularity, the centre is embarking on new building developments (new conference hall, larger seminar room and additional bedrooms) so as to accommodate several events simultaneously by late 2018. Our scientific policy is also evolving to welcome new types of events.

2. Introductory Lecture
Moral Foundations of Politics (PLSC 118) The trial of Adolf Eichmann, as presented in Hannah Arendt's Eichmann in Jerusalem, is the topic of discussion. Professor Shapiro asks students what made them uncomfortable, not only about Eichmann's actions as a Nazi officer, but also the actions of Israel in capturing, extraditing, trying, and executing him. This begs the questions, what makes a government legitimate? And more specifically, was the Third Reich illegitimate and was Eichmann breaking some kind of higher law? After class discussion, Professor Shapiro frames the five traditions that were introduced in the previous class as ways to answer this question of governmental legitimacy, and introduces John Locke, the topic of the next lecture, as a backdrop for these traditions. 00:00 - Chapter 1. Who Was Adolf Eichmann? 05:44 - Chapter 2. Analyzing Eichmann's Actions 11:30 - Chapter 3. Analyzing Eichmann's Apprehension, Trial and Execution 25:24 - Chapter 4. Eichmann's Actions versus His Apprehension, Trial and Execution 32:03 - Chapter 5. Five Traditions: What Makes a Regime Legitimate or Illegitimate?

Separation of Powers and Checks and Balances: Crash Course Government and Politics #3
In which Craig Benzine teaches you about the US Governments Separation of powers and the system of checks and balances. In theory, the Legislative Branch, the Executive Branch, and the Judicial Brach are designed to keep each other in check, and to keep any branch from becoming too powerful. In reality, the system was designed to keep the president from becoming some kind of autocrat. For the most part, it has worked. Craig will call in the clones to explain which powers belong to which branches, and to reveal some secret perks that the Supreme Court justices enjoy.

The Invisible Empire: Introduction to Alexander Dugin’s “Foundations of Geopolitics”, pt. 1
We commence the analysis of the core political and strategic ideas of Alexander Dugin as laid out in his main work “Foundations of Geopolitics – Geopolitical Future of Russia”, based on a close reading of the text. In this segment we explain mainly the proverbial foundations or “the principal duality” of Dugin’s megalomaniac eschatology falsely posing as, and today curiously popular, political science stressing the role of geography. This is the first close reading analysis of the foundational neo-Eurasianist text in the English language. Give it a look, we guarantee you won’t like it if you are busy cheering for Russia to defeat the “globalists”. But maybe, if you are displaying some symptoms of Duginitis chronica in its early stages, it could just make you re-think what you’re getting yourself into.
