Essay aus dem Jahr 2008 im Fachbereich Politik - Sonstige Themen, Note: 1,7, Helmut-Schmidt-Universität - Universität der Bundeswehr Hamburg, Veranstaltung: Proseminar: Staat, Anarchie und Weltgesellschaft, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Der Oscarprämierte Dokumentarfilm „The Fog of War“ befasst sich unter der Regie von Errol Morris mit dem Leben von Robert Strange McNamara, dem ehemaligen US-amerikanischen Verteidigungsminister in der Zeit von 1961 bis 1968. Dazu führte Regisseur Morris mehr als zwanzig Interviewstunden mit McNamara, die er schließlich zu einem zweistündigen Film verarbeitete. Ebenfalls wurden zahlreiche Archivfotos, Aufnahmen und Tonbandmitschnitte aus dem weißen Haus eingespielt, welche stellenweise zum ersten Mal der Öffentlichkeit zugänglich gemacht wurden. „The Fog of War“ beleuchtet McNamaras Leben, angefangen bei seinem Universitätsabschluss, von seiner Zeit im Zweiten Weltkrieg, der kurzen Präsidentschaft über den Ford-Konzern (er war der erste Präsident von Ford, der nicht Mitglied der namensgebenden Familie war) und im Schwerpunkt seine Involvierung in die Kubakrise sowie dem Vietnamkrieg. Nur am Rande wird seine abschließende Tätigkeit bei der Weltbank angesprochen, die bis in das Jahr 1981 währte. Robert McNamara antwortete erstaunlich offenherzig in dieser Diskussion und gestattete damit einen fast schon intimen Einblick in sein Seelenleben und seine politischen Ansichten.

Life identities of solids, androids, gaseous and organic intelligent species are using Jacey's family to prove that humans are an inferior life species. This test is to show that androids have superseded humans as the superior solid life identity. Her family are like pieces in an intergalactic chess game.

Conversations About The Assessment of Arguments in Design and A General Education Course of Studies in Design, Planning, and Policy-Making

The book explores two issues about design: The first, evaluation of arguments used in discussions about design, planning, policy proposals,— a subject neglected by traditional logic — presents proposals for their systematic assessment. The second is based on the insight that design arguments contain premises spanning the entire range of types of human knowledge, whose validation draws on all approaches to human inquiry (including but not limited to scientifi c method). A general education course using exposure to design tasks therefore would provide students with a better framework for exploring and understanding all these inquiry forms, and how they relate to one another.
