A reconsideration of subjectivity? Lacan’s response to posthumanism



A reconsideration of the concept of architectural space in the virtual realm

This new type of ideal space was called hyperspace. The counter-intuitive quality of hyperspace has opened up new formal possibilities and representation techniques in art and architecture. In a similar manner, with the introduction of computers, the virtual and immaterial qual...

Menemencioğlu, Rifat Kerim; Bedirhanoğlu Toker, Pınar; Department of International Relations (2009)
Exclusion has become a popular term in the recent two decades which is used to designate to the relatively disadvantageous people, groups, parties in different societies.
