  • Kilauea Eruptions and the Hawaiian Archipelago

    • Authors: Barry Wood
      Pages: 1 - 16
      Abstract: Abstract A four-month surge of Mount Kilauea eruptions (May to August 2018) on the Big Island reminds us that the whole chain of Hawaiian islands has been built by volcanic activity. Kilauea is one of five volcanoes that built the Big Island; a future island (Lo’ihi) is growing on the seafloor 20 miles to the southeast. A plume of rising magma from deep inside the Earth’s mantle underlies a seafloor hotspot; lava is forced through vents in the Earth’s crust; as the Pacific seafloor moves northwest from its origin at the East Pacific Rise, this stationary hotspot creates a line of volcanic islands. To the northwest, submerged seamounts remain as remnants of former islands once formed over this hotspot. A northward chain known as the Emperor Seamounts reveals that this same hotspot has created more than 100 volcanoes over 70 million years. The Hawaiian and Emperor seamounts are not unique. The New England Seamounts off the coast of Massachusetts and similar chains in the South Atlantic record the east-west spread of the Atlantic seafloor over mid-ocean hotspots. In the Indian Ocean, north-running seamount chains record the northward movement of the Indian plate following the breakup of Pangea. In the United States, a line of extinct craters west of Yellowstone across Idaho mark the westward movement of the North American plate over the hotspot now under Yellowstone National Park.

  • Towards a Big History Model for Italian Schools

    • Authors: Adalberto Codetta Raiteri, Marina Porta, Giovanni Grieco, Renza Cambini
      Pages: 33 - 49
      Abstract: To quote the psychologist Jerome Bruner, “Schooling is only one small part of how culture inducts the young into its canonical ways.” This “small part” has become much smaller in recent decades. In fact, scholastic curriculum has embraced only a small part of the enormous and complex changes that scientific and technological research has generated in everyday life and in the way people view the world. A new culture is now spreading through a multiplicity of media forms that scholastic institutions have struggled to catch on to and understand. The formation of global citizens is an emerging problem. OPPI is a small teacher training institute that for more than 50 years, in cooperation with schools and universities, has been keeping teachers aware that technological innovations are changing people’s consciousness and that education must adapt to these changes. OPPI has identified Big History as an important means to adapt scholastic instruction to youths’ consciousness and has begun to study how to implement it. Its activities begin with a questionnaire investigating the spontaneous ideas that students have acquired about the universe, not only from previous school studies, but also from social networks, the media, and their family environment. Discussion of this questionnaire is the main topic of this article. The second topic concerns the presentation of an intervention model, which is planned for students ages 16–18 and their teachers.

  • Was there a Big Bang'

    • Authors: Leonid Grinin
      Pages: 51 - 59
      Abstract: The idea that our Universe emerged as a result of the extraordinary power of the Big Bang from singularity (i.e., a state of an infinitely small quantity and infinitely high concentration of matter) is still very popular today. It was one of the main postulates of the Big Bang theory that completely formed in the 1960s–1970s. However, at present this idea as well as the Big Bang theory is outdated, although it is still shared by many scientists. Being widespread since the end of the 1970s the Inflation theory appears more modern. The main reason for the emergence of the Inflation theory was that the Big Bang theory could not satisfactorily explain a number of the contemporary parameters of the Universe. The Inflation theory makes still widespread views of the Big Bang theory archaic, in particular as regards the following points: 1) the history of the Universe started with the Big Bang; 2) it started with the singularity. According to the Inflation theory, the Big Bang was not the beginning and the moment of the origin of the Universe, but it was preceded by at least two epochs: inflation and post-inflationary heating. That is, the Big Bang or precisely the hot Big Bang is just a phase transition from the state of cold inflation to the hot phase. Since the Inflation theory does not consider the Big Bang as the initial phase there emerges an intricate problem of the role of the Big Bang in the process of the formation the Universe as a whole. The paper considers the confusion with the Big Bang notion, a number and sequence of ‘bangs’ and why the theory can dispense easily without the notion the Big Bang. We will also discuss some advantages and disadvantages of the Inflation theory.

  • The Evolution of Social Constructs

    • Authors: Anthony Nairn
      Pages: 61 - 76
      Abstract: Evolution by natural selection applied by sociologists has been met with great resistance since Herbert Spencer (1820-1903), marked by dark notions of power and authority associated with an uncritical and enthusiastic  application of natural selection to fashionable notions of race and privilege. E.O. Wilson’s (1929-) Sociobiology (1975) attempted to reignite the possibilities of evolutionary discourse using modern genetics to social systems but was stymied by the racialized legacy and liberal notions of “genetic determinism.” Here, the sociobiological framework is re-imagined by extending it from individual gene mechanisms and behavior, into social figurations of large-scale actor networks. Using the conceptual tools and historical analysis of Norbert Elias’s, The Court Society (1983), detailing Louis XVI’s court and the interdependencies between its members, I will be suggesting that these networks of interdependence composed of individual actors are facilitated and constrained by the processes of natural selection, and therefore can be analyzed as such. The entanglement of dependencies created by actors within a network formulates “massing” points that identify the networks form and function as a “social organism”. The value gained in understanding the organic fluidity of social networks, how they are formed, shaped, evolve, and come into conflict with competing social figurations, may provide a new and naturally derived way of interpreting interdependent social actor networks, and provide greater depth into the conceptualization of human social relations. Finally, such a view of history and sociology would align with the principles of Big History by understanding the human subject as bound to the same processes of development that have been occurring to all forms of matter in the Universe over the last 13.8 billion years.

  • Uma teoria de nada

    • Authors: André de Vinck, Tatiana Massuno
      Pages: 61 - 80
      Abstract: Como podemos definir uma nova teoria geral da evolução e, consequentemente, uma nova teoria geral da história evolucionária' Primeiramente, precisamos resolver o mistério que se encontra no centro do grande livro de Darwin. Em segundo lugar, temos que identificar os começos de natureza-cultura-história. Darwin não pôde definir o termo espécie e seus sucessores não conseguem definir o termo gene. Uma solução padrão para este dilema é definir uma espécie enquanto um grupo de organismos dimórficos que, de forma bem sucedida, troca genes. No entanto, algo indefinível não pode ser utilizado para definir outra coisa indefinível. Ao invés de detectar a evolução das coisas indefiníveis, podemos traçar a evolução de relações definíveis - p. ex. a troca. Trocar significa colocar em relação e, dessa forma, significar os valores relativos dos significantes sendo trocados, assim como os valores relativos dos significantes iniciando a troca. Nesse contexto sugiro que a natureza comece com a dinâmica da troca; cultura, com a prática da troca e a história, com a sintaxe da troca. Ao invés de uma teoria de tudo, proponho, dessa maneira, uma teoria de nada. Proponho que nada existe em e de si mesmo e que tudo evolui como uma eco-matriz coincidental das relações significativas de troca.

  • A Evolução de Construtos Sociais

    • Authors: Anthony Nairn, Daniel Daniel Barreiros
      Pages: 77 - 93
      Abstract: A aplicação, por sociólogos, do conceito de evolução por seleção natural tem encontrado forte resistência desde Herbert Spencer (1820-1903), marcada por noções obscuras de poder e de autoridade associadas a uma aplicação acrítica e entusiástica da seleção natural a noções elegantes de raça e privilégio. Sociobiology (1975) de E. O. Wilson (1929-) tentou reacender as possibilidades do discurso evolucionário empregando a genética moderna na compreensão dos sistemas sociais, mas foi obstado pelo legado das questões de raça e por noções liberais de “determinismo genético”. Neste texto, o arcabouço sociobiológico é reimaginado através de sua extensão, partindo de mecanismos comportamentais e genéticos individuais para a figuração social de redes de atores em larga escala. Empregando as ferramentas conceituais e a análise histórica de Norbert Elias em The Court Society (1983), detalhando a corte de Luís XIV e a interdependência entre seus membros, sugerirei que essas redes de interdependência compostas por atores individuais são facilitadas e constrangidas pelo processo de seleção natural, de modo que podem ser analisadas neste sentido. O emaranhamento de dependências criadas pelos atores nessa rede produz pontos de “aglomeração” que identificam a forma das redes e sua função como “organismo social”. O que se ganha em compreender a fluidez orgânica das redes sociais, o modo pelo qual são formadas, moldadas, desenvolvidas, e a maneira pela qual conflitam com figurações sociais concorrentes, pode prover uma forma nova e naturalmente derivada de interpretar as redes de atores sociais interdependentes, e oferecer uma maior profundidade na  conceitualização das relações sociais humanas. Por fim, uma visão da história e da sociologia como essa pode se alinhar aos princípios da Grande História através da compreensão do sujeito humano como atrelado aos mesmos processos de desenvolvimento que se impõem a todas as formas de matéria no Universo pelos últimos 13,8 bilhões de anos.

  • A Theory of No-Thing

    • Authors: André de Vinck
      Pages: 95 - 114
      Abstract: How can we define a new general theory of evolution and, consequently, a new general theory of evolutionary history' First, we have to solve the mystery that lies at the heart of Darwin’s great book. Second, we have to trace the beginnings of nature-culture-history. Darwin couldn’t define the term species and his successors cannot define the term gene. A standard solution to this dilemma is to define a species as a group of dimorphic organisms that successfully exchange genes. However, one undefinable thing can’t be used to define another undefinable thing. Instead of tracing the evolution of undefinable things, we can trace the evolution of definable relations–e.g. exchange. To exchange means to put in relation and, therefore, to signify the relative values of the signifiers being exchanged as well as the relative values of the signifiers initiating the exchange. In this context I suggest that nature begins with the dynamic of exchange, culture begins with the practice of exchange, history begins with the syntax of exchange. Instead of a theory of every-thing, therefore, I propose a theory of no-thing. I propose that no-thing exists in and of itself and that every-thing evolves as a co-incidental eco-matrix of the signifying relations of exchange.

  • From Ghoonghat to De Beauvoir

    • Authors: Isha Mathur
      Pages: 99 - 112
      Abstract: Questions of identity are central to anthropological studies. Likewise, the use of self-narrative as a resource has widened the scope for ethnographic research, becoming a form of participant-observer study. The author produces a narrative of the experiences of women in Marwadi communities in western India. The narrative examines the relationship between culture and identity for the purpose of achieving greater self-awareness. It explores the concept of veiling as a discriminatory practice and uses it as a metaphor for understanding wider gender issues. The study draws upon primary sources, such as oral history. Since memory is an important resource but is also selective in its veracity, the author supplements it with secondary sources that reflect on the dichotomy between communities, individuals, and gender.
