Formal science

Written by

Formal sciences are language disciplines concerned with formal systems, such as logic, mathematics, statistics, theoretical computer science, information theory, game theory, systems theory, decision theory, and theoretical linguistics.Whereas the natural sciences and social sciences seek to characterize physical systems and social systems respectively using empirical methods, the formal sciences are language tools concerned with characterizing abstract structures described by sign systems. The formal sciences aid the natural sciences by providing information about the structures the latter use to describe the world, and what inferences may be made about them.

Engaged theory

Written by

Engaged theory is a methodological framework for understanding social complexity. It takes social life or social relations as its base category, with 'the social' always understood as grounded in 'the natural', including humans as embodied beings. Engaged theory provides a framework that moves from detailed empirical analysis about things, people and processes in the world to abstract theory about the constitution and social framing of those things, people and processes.

Written by

Reports state that almost 17,000 marine species are not properly protected in their natural habitat. And, unfortunately, it seems that the United States is at the bottom of the list, along with Canada, and Brazil who offer very little protection for animals around their borders.

 

An artificial intelligence centre is being launched by the University of Cambridge to explore the challenges and opportunities to humanity, thanks to a generous grant of £10 million from the Leverhulme Trust, a large national grant-making foundation in the United Kingdom, established in 1925 under the will of William Lever, 1st Viscount Leverhulme.
