What Is IS?

Robert L. Glass
2012 Information systems management  
I realize that I may be preaching to the choir here, because all of you readers of Information Systems Management are savvy enough to know what IS really is (after all, you're professionally immersed in  ...  CS wants to claim that it covers the topics of IS, but it simply doesn't know enough to do so. As we said in [Glass, Vessey and Ramesh 2004] , CS people are sometimes "arrogant and ignorant."  ...

Kathryn Blair, Miriam Sturdee, Lindsay MacDonald Vermeulen, Lora Oehlberg
2022 CHI Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems Extended Abstracts  
Art is not Research.  ...  It ofers a framework through which we can explore how epistemologies might evolve in a blending between Art and Research.  ...  ACKNOWLEDGMENTS All the frustrated artists who force their knowledge into structures that don't recognize them; all the participants whose knowledge is extracted.  ...

What is Evidence?

Denise Koufogiannakis
2011 Evidence Based Library and Information Practice  
Lately, I have been pondering what we really mean when we say "evidence based practice"?  ...  Hence, the initial evidence of "what do I know" becomes an area that is crucial to future research that will be of value to practice improvement.  ...

What is information?

Christoph Adami
2016 Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society A: Mathematical, Physical and Engineering Sciences  
Information is a precise concept that can be defined mathematically, but its relationship to what we call "knowledge" is not always made clear.  ...  I argue that a proper understanding of information in terms of prediction is key to a number of disciplines beyond engineering, such as physics and biology.  ...  Assuming that we know the common knowledge stuff that the urn only has red and blue balls in it, then what we do not know is the identity of the next ball that we will draw.  ...

Fire is Food

Ron Reed, Kari Marie Norgaard
2021 Ethnic Studies Review  
[This is] something that we all know about: denied access to traditional food, right Kari? But, what we're really talking about is denied access to management. That's the other piece of the pie.  ...  Prescribed fire is who we are as a people. Relearning goes back to fire is food, fire is prayer. All those things we're doing out there is an intergenerational knowledge transfer.  ...

What kind of "is" is Sahlins' "is"?

Maurice BLOCH
2013 HAU: Journal of Ethnographic Theory  
Like me, Sahlins does not want to do this because he feels, and in this he is like all the honest anthropologists I know, that somehow behind all the variation there really is something to be considered  ...  The existence of a fact cannot be left floating in mid-air because then we don't know what we are talking about.  ...

WHAT IS MORALLY GOOD?

Ramona Nicoleta ARIEŞAN, Faculty of Philosophy and History, Cluj-Napoca, ROMANIA
2019 International Journal of Theology Philosophy and Science  
We might never fully understand what is morally good but at least we know that we are doing everything that we can to try and improve our knowledge, to try and improve our own ways of seeing and perceiving  ...  It is an interesting field that holds a lot of meaning. It might just be the reason why we are who we are as people, why we do the things that we do and we believe in them so much.  ...  We know so many thing about it, we know maybe a few definition that we use when we are talking about morality but we really need to feel it on our own skin in order for us to be able to fully comprehend  ...

Is There Propositional Understanding?

Emma C. Gordon
2012 Logos & Episteme: An International Journal of Epistemology  
The upshot is that epistemologists can do without the notion of propositional understanding.  ...  that all apparent instances of propositional understanding can be more plausibly explained as featuring one of several other epistemic states, this paper argues that talk of propositional understanding is  ...  that something other than propositional understanding is what is really being attributed.  ...

What is science; what is art? [chapter]

John Beaver
2018 The Physics and Art of Photography, Volume 1: Geometry and the nature of light  
So why then, in a given case, do we pick the particular theory we do? Well, often, we don't. We disagree, at least for a while.  ...  Meanwhile, we discover (literally today, as I write this) that someone else will soon present similar data on this very same cluster. What to do? Well, we make the best of it.  ...

When Hope Is All There Is Left

H. W. M. van Laarhoven, C. J. W. Leget, W. T. A. van der Graaf
2011 The Oncologist  
And if we treated her, what were we hoping for? Of course, extension of her life. But at what price and for how long?  ...  What did I have to offer her? At her first visit, Mrs. B. wanted to know the ins and outs of all treatment options. She was an intelligent woman, enjoying life in all its dimensions.  ...  Is that not what respect for autonomy is all about?  ...

Is poetry research?

Paul Magee
2009 Text: Journal of the Australian Association of Writing Programs  
Beginning with an account of responses to the question 'What research do you do?' the article proceeds to investigate how that research manifests at the moment of composition.  ...  It's a matter of working out, in as many fields as possible, how art knows.  ...  So I mean, what the fuck are we doing talking about knowledge?  ...

What is Knowledge?

Quassim Cassam
2009 Royal Institute of Philosophy Supplement  
Hence: On making such an assertion. . . we are directly exposed to questions such as (1) 'Do you know there is?' 'Do you know he is?' and (2) 'How do you know?'  ...  This is what Michael Williams is getting at in his comment that 'when we ask "What is knowledge?"  ...

Q is for Qualia

David Misselbrook
2014 British Journal of General Practice  
Yet if this person -in possession of all available knowledge about redness -were to be cured of their colour blindness then they will learn something new that they did not know before: what it is to see  ...  (Think of the old conundrum: how do I know that the redness I perceive when I look at a pillar box is the same as the redness you perceive?)  ...

Editorial: What Is and What Is Not a Substantial Contribution?

Sönke Albers, Caren Sureth
2012 Business Research  
Such a discourse about the value of a contribution can only be achieved if the article is well documented. Otherwise we do not know whether the result can be replicated or generalized.  ...  Thus, it would not be clear whether we can really rely on a certain result.  ...

Is Ethical Egoism Really Inconsistent?

Laszlo Versenyi
1970 Ethics: An International Journal of Social, Political, and Legal Philosophy  
That is why, for the ethical egoist, virtue is knowledge of what is good (for me), that is, self-knowledge-knowledge of what I am and therefore need and must do in order to fulfill myself.  ...  In other words, what he needs is knowledge, not exhortation to do his duty.  ...
