The Pros and Cons of Object Orineted Programming and Procedural Programming - ... Now, we will look into what Object Oriented Programming is. Before that we must first understand what an object is, because that is what the entire programming method is based on. An object is something which has a defined state and characteristics of its own. This concept was taken from the real world scenario, where each object we see has those two states. An example would be a cup, it has a height, it has a purpose and it has a specific volume which it can hold. The shape of the cup can also be taken into consideration....   [tags: procedures, functions, computer, cost] 1259 words

The failure of the State as the primary referent object for security studies - The belief that the State should be the primary referent object for security studies has for many, become outdated. With the failure of the Westphalian system in the late 20th century , under which States were the primary institutional agents, international debate sparked over issues of sovereignty and the State became less relevant as the primary referent object. The world was changing and as Dr. Javier Solana, Secretary General of NATO said in 1998, humanity and democracy, two principles at the fore of international debate, and essentially irrelevant to the original Westphalian system, now serve as guideposts in crafting a new international order, one better adapted to the security realiti...   [tags: Global Security]

Qualia, Robots and Complementarity of Subject and Object - Qualia, Robots and Complementarity of Subject and Object Jackson claims that a person who sees colors for the first time by this very fact acquires a certain knowledge which she or he could not have learned in a black and white world. This argument can be generalized to other secondary qualities. I argue that this claim is indefensible without implicit recourse to the first-person experience; also Nagel’s "what it is like" argument is polemically weak. Hence, we have no argument able to dismiss physicalism by consideration of first-person qualia (contra Jackson); however, it does not force us to endorse qualia-reductionism....   [tags: Philosophy Papers]
