In the 1990s, inter-state conflicts (i.e. two national armies using force against each other) were replaced by numerous internal and regional struggles that involved the use of force by a plethora armed groups....   [tags: International Relations] 1523 words

Human vs. Computer: Comparison of How the Truth of a Statement is Determined in the Framework of WVO Quine’s Holism - I. Introduction How do we know that a statement is true. There are at least two ways to interpret and, therefore, answer this question.
