📒Tautological Oxymorons ✍ John D. Brey
📝Tautological Oxymorons Book Synopsis : Following in the fêted footsteps of Heidegger and Nietzsche - Jacques Derrida set out to complete the process of 'deconstructing' Western metaphysics. But something remarkable happened on the way to dismantling the Forum! As if by grand design, Derrida's deconstruction of Western metaphysics morphed into the ultimate justification for the apophatic (negative) theology that undergirds Western metaphysics! In reaction to this inadvertent justification of negative theology, Derrida embarked on a decade long confrontation with negative theology. Most objective observers of the confrontation would be hard pressed not to feel that rather than deconstruction 'deconstructing' apophatic theology, instead, and quite irreverently, apophatic theology appears to have absorbed and incorporated the vocabulary of Derrida's deconstruction into the very language it uses to justify its presuppositions. Having more than staved off the attack by Derrida's deconstruction, it may now be time to turn the sword in the opposite direction. If deconstruction is easily absorbed into the apophatic behemoth supporting Western metaphysics, what would happen if Western metaphysics applied deconstruction to the modern scientific materialism which acts as the cornerstone of the worldview setting itself in opposition to Western metaphysics? Tautological Oxymorons is an attempt to deconstruct the language and logic used to present scientific materialism as though it were a viable alternative to pre-Enlightenment theology, philosophy, and mythology. By examining modern scientific materialism in the light of language (and proper language use) we can see that much that's taken for granted as 'obvious' and a mere 'given' (within the context of scientific materialism) is rather (when carefully examined in the context of precise language usage) nothing more than sheer unadulterated absurdity!

📒Healthcare Design And Other Oxymorons ✍ Nick Devenney
📝Healthcare Design and Other Oxymorons Book Synopsis : If you have ever experienced prolonged contact with Architects, you know they are a subspecies that sees the world through kaleidoscopic glasses -- nothing focused, ever-changing, unpredictable, and beautiful. "Healthcare Design and Other Oxymorons" is a peek through a pair of those glasses -- mine. We will ricochet from opinions to experiences to poems to philosophies, arranged in no particular order, straight from my pinball mind. I have always known I wanted to be an architect, virtually springing from the womb "T" square in hand. Maybe that's why Mother never liked me. Most architects will tell you they have always known they wanted to be an architect. One does not dabble in various jobs and eventually decide to try architecture next. Architecture is an easily identifiable job, like a fireman or doctor, which children can understand and adopt at an early age. Professions like insurance agent, union boss, or florist don't seem to light the fire of a five year old. But an architect -- wow! Unfortunately architects do not have hero status like firemen or doctors. Architects are much maligned, I think by bad rumors started by evil contractors. Stuff like "Architects can't keep a budget, can't meet a schedule, and can't stop leaks, cracks or squeaks." All this is very true. We have good reasons but exploring them has already been done in stunning boredom in many other books. Not this one. Some of my friends (I think) have read parts of this book as it was being written and have questioned why I would mix so many topics -- healthcare, sustainability, religion, growing up, politics, ethics, etc. -- into a book about the practice of architectural design. The answer is that every one of these topics influences architecture and, to a great extent, architecture influences them. There cannot be a serious discussion about the design of a church, or a town, or a hospital without understanding the relationships that civility, politics, religion, etc., have on design goals. So skip around, read the parts you like and avoid parts that you don't agree with. Maybe later you will go back to the skipped parts. I hope.
