The Study Of The Status Of Interpretive Narrations Of The Followers In Exegesis Of The Holy Quran

The Study Of The Status Of Interpretive Narrations Of The Followers In Exegesis Of The Holy Quran

The study of the narrative interpretation and explanation of the Quran shows that these traditions are diverse in nature . A large quantity of narratives in interpretation of the Holy Quran is related to the followers of the Companions of the Holy Prophet (PBUH) of companions of the Prophet Muhammad ( PBUH) .Investigating those narratives we see a kind of variation in His interpretations of the verses of the Holy Quran . Some narratives investigate the lexicology of the Holy Quran denotatively. They have also mentioned the reasons for the fall of the verses, the news of the nations and past events, the definition of short verses, and the interpretation of general verses. The variation of interpretative typology of the Holy Quran is of great attraction which implicitly shows the high scientific position of the interpreter and in turn leads to better comprehension of the depth and real concepts of the words of Allah by the audiences.

Baptism in the Holy Spirit: A Phenomenological and Theological Study

Baptism in the Holy Spirit: A Phenomenological and Theological Study

It was in the Archdiocese of Medan, North Sumatra, Indonesia, where I come from, that I first encountered those who have associated themselves with the Catholic Charismatic Renewal (CCR). I noticed that religious acts such as celebration of the Eucharist, adoration of the Blessed Sacrament, prayer meetings, spiritual reawakening, Life in the Spirit Seminars, annual retreat, and spiritual reawakening were attended by many charismatically inclined people. The celebration of Mass and Holy Hours lasts much longer than any traditional 1 Catholic Sunday Mass, is performed exuberantly, and is accompanied by the singing of popular religious hymns with modern instruments. Speaking in unknown languages (glossolalia) is exercised at every prayer meeting. The reality is much the same as that of one of the meetings of the Persekutuan Doa Keluarga Katolik Indonesia (PDKKI) 2 and some other CCR groups in the Archdiocese of Melbourne which I observed several times. For them, the CCR, especially its tenet of experience of what is called ‘baptism in the Holy Spirit’, 3 seems to be “like treasure hidden in a field which someone has found” (Matt 13:44).

The God of the Bible A Study of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit

The God of the Bible A Study of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit

In talking to these patients I tried to be as honest, understanding and objective as possible. The only things I refused to dispense with — couldn’t have dispensed with even if I had tried — were my medical knowledge and my common sense. I listened carefully to everything they told me and followed up every lead which might, even remotely, have led to a confirmation of a miracle. When I had done all this I was led to an inescapable conclusion: none of the patients who had returned ... to reaffirm the cures they had claimed at the miracle service had, in fact, been miraculously cured of anything, by either Kathryn Kuhlman or the Holy Spirit.

Awareness raising Process on Present Popular and Life Culture and Aesthetic Perceptions through the Kitsch Phenomenon

Awareness raising Process on Present Popular and Life Culture and Aesthetic Perceptions through the Kitsch Phenomenon

[21] says “educators must guide children in using their creativity characteristics” and stresses that traditional stereotype programmes and methods turn children into individuals who think uniformly, are copied from each other, and unable to produce anything. Terwiel, Dizdar [18] conducted an experimental study on pre-school children and argued that memorized habits and inclination towards drawing can be observed in every child. Yılmaz [22] claims that when one enters the school areas where the works of children are exhibited, he/she sees tens of works in the halls which are almost identical. These template works which are created by using shapes, colours and materials which are similar to each other prepared by cutting by teachers in the form of a mould are not only killing the creativity of children but also destroying their self-confidence in time. This situation accustoms the child to laggardness and removes him/her from aesthetic concerns and makes them monotypic. This understanding in education is also reflected to the school performances which are far from creativity. In such an environment full of mimetic elements, it is not possible to keep the children outside the kitsch phenomenon.

Gender Differences in Aesthetic Rhinoplasty Patients: A Study on Psychopathological Symptoms

Gender Differences in Aesthetic Rhinoplasty Patients: A Study on Psychopathological Symptoms

It has also been suggested that in general, men tend to have a poorer understanding of their deformity than do women. Thus, they cannot describe the changes they expect from the surgery [24] [26]. This tendency, com- bined with a tendency toward selective hearing among male patients, makes it even more important that the physician determine the patient’s goals and establish whether they are realistic during the initial consultation. Perhaps, the expectations of aesthetic rhinoplasty in the male patients are higher or even more ambiguous com- pared to female patients; however, the preoperative exhibition of psychopathological symptoms is more severe among women who apply for aesthetic rhinoplasty.

Aesthetic antirealism

Aesthetic antirealism

Clearly, however, the tight analogy is strained. While it is true that the judgmental capacities for aesthetic quahties and smells and colors can (at least to some degree) be improved by training, in the case o f aesthetic quahties, such training or cultural influence is necessary for proficient discrimination. It seems that without some famiharity with the appropriate artistic genre and the possession o f an adequate stock o f critical vocabulary (and not just these), identifying the elegance o f a Beethoven string quartet or the bathetic quahty of a patriotic poem whl not be possible. Sensitivity to colors and smells, on the other hand, are basic to normal human functioning. While perhaps only color experts can name a great number of the hues in our human color space, even persons lacking abstract words for colors are demonstrably able to distinguish between unique hues and to group color samples into groups o f like resemblance.^® And while it is also true that our perception is inextricably linked to our higher cognition even in the color case, the necessity of traioing and experience in tlie identification o f aesthetic quahties gives higher (i.e more self-aware) cognition a much larger role to play. Granting that aesthetic predicates refer to properties, it is clear that aesthetic properties must be different firom color properties. Sibley points out that “whereas there is notliing about the way a thing looks that makes it look blue, there are aU sorts of visible features that make a thing look, or are responsible for its looking graceful (though their presence does not entail what they are responsible for)”.^® So the logical structure of aesthetic concepts is very different from that o f secondary quahties.

Urban interventionism as a challenge to aesthetic order: Towards an aesthetic criminology

Urban interventionism as a challenge to aesthetic order: Towards an aesthetic criminology

The philosophical study of aesthetics is most associated with arts appreciation, particularly concerning debates over what constitutes good or bad art. Such assessments are often tied to notions of good and bad taste. A Kantian perspective - and one that this article follows - is that taste is entirely subjective, that “an objective principle of taste is impossible” (Kant, 1790/2011: 12). Thus, questions concerning who has better taste than others are highly debatable. For instance, according to the conservative philosopher, Roger Scruton (2009: 133), “In a democratic culture people are inclined to believe that it is presumptuous to claim to have better taste than your neighbour. By doing so you are implicitly denying his right to be the thing that he is”. Yet Scruton continues:

Study of the Natural Circulation Phenomenon for Nuclear Reactors

Study of the Natural Circulation Phenomenon for Nuclear Reactors

Abstract. The objective of this paper is to study the natural circulation phenomenon in one and two-phase regime. There has been a crescent interest in the scientific community in the study of the natural circulation. New generation of compact nuclear reactors uses the natural circulation for residual heat removal in case of accident or shutdown. For this study, the modeling and the simulation of the experimental circuit is performed with the RELAP5 code. The theoretical results showed to be satisfactory when compared with the experimental ones.

December 27, The Holy Family of Jesus, Mary and Joseph HOLY GHOST

The Church dedicates the Sunday aer Christmas as the Feast of the Holy Family. Pope Leo XIII established this feast in 1889. The devo#on to the Holy Family was actually born in Bethlehem. How so? The shepherds went to adore the Child and, at the same #me, they gave honor to His family. Later the three wise men came from the East to adore and give honor to the newborn King with gis that would be safeguarded by His family.

The Nature of Aesthetic Experiences

The Nature of Aesthetic Experiences

For aesthetic responses to be disinterested thus means that the constituent aesthetic feelings are not about the existence or nature of the experienced objects (apart, of course, from their aesthetic appeal). In particular, they do not have a propositional content consisting of these objects and aesthetically non- evaluative qualities. If someone feels pleased, disgusted or excited about the fact that a certain object ex- ists, or about how it is like, then he does not have a specifically aesthetic feeling. For example, whether we own Manet’s Breakfast or just see it in a gallery, whether we share the excitement of the first en- counter with it with a person we like very much or look at it for ourselves, or whether in general we take delight in depictions of nudity: all these factors are irrelevant for the aesthetic appeal of the painting; but they might signify non-aesthetic kinds of merit. We value objects for many diverse reasons: because we possess them, and their possession is of economic or social value for us; because they remind us of happy times or people dear to us; because they teach us something important about life; and so forth. Accord - ingly, when we are aware of these objects, we often feel pleasure about the respective facts: that we pos- sess them; that they are reminiscent of nice things; or that they are informative. And to take delight in these facts involves taking delight in the - supposed or anticipated - existence of the experienced objects. But our evaluative feelings are, in these cases, not aesthetic. Instead, they ascribe economical, social, sen- timental or cognitive values, and they concern and reflect our economical, social, sentimental or cognitive interests 35 .

The Liquid Aesthetic of the Cameraphone

The Liquid Aesthetic of the Cameraphone

Although specific features unique to each cameraphone model influences the aesthetic of these photographs (see Figure 4), a lack of photographic conventions associated with the cameraphone has the potential to promote a culture of creative experimentation. Excessive pixilation creates a visual effect reminiscent of the impressionist movement in painting. Images of highways and suburban streets now take on an almost nostalgic quality. Pockets of soft focus and distortion, randomly generated by the cameraphone, create areas of mystery within the frame. They distort the original image, disrupt the narrative and create a space for the viewer to project their narrative interpretation. Just as the pinhole camera has taken its place as a transformative technology within the history of analogue photography, the early model cameraphone marked the beginning of an emergent cameraphone aesthetic located within the genealogy of digital imaging technologies and contemporary photographic practice.

Kant on Aesthetic of the Beautiful

Kant on Aesthetic of the Beautiful

This may be the greatest debate. As all of the Grecian philosophy rests on empirical reason, so it is not easy to deny the role of reason in human judgment and other activities, especially in sciences and arts. The man‟s mental faculty has surpassed the boundaries of skills, all due to the scientific reason initiated by Greek philosophers. It is not easy to demolish all the hallmarks of reason on which the grand building of human civilization is constructed. We have discussed the views of Aristotle on the perception of beauty and appreciation of aesthetic, and that aesthetic which prevailed in his times/on which; he knitted his theory of fine arts. Actually Rosseau wants to say beneath the surface, about the qualitative change in human civilization as general and in man‟s perception as particular. Moreover, his famous doctrine of freedom of society is also attached with his refutation of the advancement of sciences and arts. He considers that this is not advancement, but this is a reversal. Why? Because man has not learned to live in accordance with nature, which according to him has not only the only source of inspiration of his development as his ultimate guide. Definitely if dialectically seen he is in search of that beautiful art which pleases the mind and restore in him composure, harmony and morality.

Ethico-Aesthetic Repairs

Ethico-Aesthetic Repairs

O ’ Connell places her critique of ‘ reconciliation ’ within a deeply per- sonal study of those forcibly removed from District 6 in late 1960s apart- heid-era Cape Town. Through the use of family photographs – the closely held personal and visual archives of her own family and other residents – O ’ Connell details the ordinary lives of a community disrupted by forced removal, bulldozers and the racist clearance of central Cape Town for the arrival of new, white residents. For O ’ Connell, the wounds of forced removal are not easily healed, nor are the lives of those removed from Dis- trict 6 easily reconciled to the present. Yet the photographs and testimo- nies offer something much more than Nora ’ s notion of contained ‘ sites of memory ’ . These ‘ photographs of the oppressed ’ , in O ’ Connell ’ s words, demand a journey into lives lived after historical catastrophe and a recognition that once muted memories can resurface and testify to the trauma of the past and its continued existence in the present. ‘ There ’ s no going back ’ , as one former resident of District 6 states. Yet the images also become the springboard for an act of repair, in all its sorrow and loss, that speaks of a past that cannot be returned to and wounds that cannot be fully healed, but that still demands the reclamation of the silenced and disavowed margins and voices in history in order to consider new and alternative futures for South Africa.
