On considérait jusqu'à présent le « hacker » comme un voyou d'internet,
responsable d'actes de piratage et de vols de numéros de cartes
L'essor du web a contribué à cette mauvaise réputation, certes tronquée
et trompeuse, des flibustiers de los angeles grande toile.
Le philosophe Pekka Himanen voit au contraire les hackers comme des
citoyens modèles de l'ère de l'information.
Il les considère comme les véritables moteurs d'une profonde mutation
sociale. Leur éthique, leur rapport au travail, au temps ou à l'argent,
sont fondés sur l. a. ardour, le plaisir ou le partage. Cette éthique est
radicalement opposée à l'éthique protestante, telle qu'elle est définie
par Max Weber, du travail comme devoir, comme valeur en soi, une morale
qui domine encore le monde aujourd'hui.
Cet essai de Himanen - déjà salué par l. a. critique aux Etats-Unis et au
Japon - ouvre de nouvelles voies pour penser l'avenir des sociétés
post-industrielles et los angeles transformation en cours du capitalisme.

The speculation of transference and the centrality of transference interpretation were hallmarks of psychoanalysis in view that its inception. however the time has come to topic conventional idea and perform to cautious, severe scrutiny within the gentle of latest science. So holds Joseph Schachter, whose Transference: Shibboleth or Albatross? undertakes this well timed and thought-provoking task.
After selecting the weaknesses and inconsistencies in Freud's unique premises approximately transference, Schachter demonstrates how modern developmental learn throughout a number of domain names successfully overturns any conception that posits a linear deterministic courting among early formative years and grownup psychic functioning, together with the grownup patient's therapy habit towards the analyst. No much less trenchantly, he indicates how modern chaos idea enhances developmental study through making the very exercise of old reconstruction - of backward prediction - suspect on logical grounds. Nor, Schacter keeps, does the scientific facts as a rule adduced in aid of transference conception give you the company bedrock of knowledge that almost all analysts consider to exist. What one unearths, he holds, are eternally reiterated claims of settling on picking out historic antecedents sustained in basic terms by way of descriptions of present behaviors via a gloss of theory.
Less a polemic than a decision to reserve, Transference: Shibboleth or Albatross? is cogently argued and straightforwardly written. it's destined to be a thorn within the aspect of analysts who withstand switch and a spur to people who search to carry analytic idea into nearer alignment with modern technological know-how within the curiosity of improves therapy efficacy.
