Fantasy of Modernity: Romantic Love in Bombay Cinema of the 1950s
 
by
none

Romantic love overwhelms 1950s Bombay cinema. Love and romance is evident in the themes, lyrics and visual aesthetics of films of the period, as it is in the publicity and gossip surrounding films and film stars. Love in cinema becomes significant when social reality constrains its quotidian experience and expression. By bringing a spectacular imagination of love to centre stage, the 1950s cinema deflected anxieties of Indianness even as the new aesthetic and affect of romance offered an alternative engagement with the contradictions of modernity. Fantasy of Modernity: Romantic Love in Bombay Cinema of the 1950s explores the films, the songs, the stars and the extra-cinematic discourse of the period to read love and romance as its most productive trope that mobilized a dynamic and contested public sphere....

Probability and Evidence

by none

Category: Mathematics

Not so sure if this is relevant anymore. I am not a philosopher, but I am interested in probability and evidence in my work. So I thought this might be useful to read before trying to read something more modern, like Bayes or Bust. There are a lot of interesting stuff here, but I was wondering if do I really need to read this, or should I try to find something more up to date? The other book with the same name, but by Paul Horwich, might have more low-hanging fruit, so to speak. In both books, a lot is made of black ravens. The black ravens problem is a typical philosophical problem, because at first you think what the heck are these philosophers complaining about, and then you realize that it is an actual problem and complain why dont these philosophers solve it so you dont have to lose your own sleep over it. Or something like that.Might be more relevant if you are a student of philosopher and really need to understand what people thought of these problems in early seventies....
