Remembering Martin Heidegger: September 26, 1889–May 26, 1976

Por • 30 sep, 2015 • Category: Opinion

Martin Heidegger is one of the giants of twentieth-century philosophy, both in terms of the depth and originality of his ideas and the breadth of his influence in philosophy, theology, the human sciences, and culture in general. Heidegger was born on September 26, 1889, in the town of Meßkirch in the district of Sigmaringen in Baden-Württemberg, Germany. He died on May 26, 1976 in Freiburg and was buried in Meßkirch. Heidegger was from a lower-class Catholic family. His family was too poor to send him to university, so he enrolled in a Jesuit seminary. But Heidegger was soon rejected by the Jesuits due to a heart condition. He then studied theology at the University of Freiburg from 1909–1911, after which time he switched his focus to philosophy. Eventually Heidegger broke entirely with Christianity.



The problem of space in the light of relativity: the views of H. Weyl and E. Cartan

Por • 30 sep, 2015 • Category: Leyes

Starting from a short review of the “classical” space problem in the sense of the 19th century (Helmholtz — Lie — Klein) it is discussed how the challenges posed by special and general relativity to the classical analysis were taken up by Hermann Weyl and Elie Cartan. Both mathematicians reconsidered the space problem from the point of view of transformations operating in the infinitesimal neighbourhoods of a manifold (spacetime). In a short outlook we survey further developments in mathematics and physics of the second half of the 20th century, in which core ideas of Weyl’s and/or Cartan’s analysis of the space problem were further investigated (mathematics) or incorporated into basic theories (physics).

The scaling of income inequality in cities

Por • 27 sep, 2015 • Category: Ambiente

Developing a scientific understanding of cities in a fast urbanizing world is essential for planning sustainable urban systems. Recently, it was shown that income and wealth creation follow increasing returns, scaling superlinearly with city size. We study scaling of per capita incomes for separate census defined income categories against population size for the whole of Australia. Across several urban area definitions, we find that lowest incomes grow just linearly or sublinearly (β=0.94 to 1.00 ), whereas highest incomes grow superlinearly (β=1.00 to 1.21 ), with total income just superlinear (β=1.03 to 1.05 ). These findings support the earlier finding: the bigger the city, the richer the city. But, we also see an emergent metric of inequality: the larger the population size and densities of a city, higher incomes grow more quickly than lower, suggesting a disproportionate agglomeration of incomes in the highest income categories in big cities.
