  • Phase I Presentation Y Symbol

    1. 1. Y-symbol Why –Y THE LETTER Y Phase IA By: Group Y Samba Will Gabrielle
    2. 2. Etymology Definition A late developing letter in Eng. Called ipsilon in Gk., the Eng. Name is of obscure origin. The sound at the beginning of yard, yes, yield, etc. is from O.E. Words with initial g- as in got an y- as in yet, which were considered the same sound and often transcribed as a character that looks something like 3, known as yogh. The system was altered by Fr. Scribes, who brought over the continental use –g- and from the early 1200’s used –y- and sometimes –gh- to replace 3.
    3. 3. <ul><li>1. the 25 th letter of the English Alphabet, a semi-vowel. </li></ul><ul><li>2. any spoken sound represented be the letter Y or y, as in yet, city, or rhythm. </li></ul><ul><li>3. something having the shape of Y. </li></ul><ul><li>4. a written or printed representation of the letter Y or y. </li></ul><ul><li>5. a device, as a printers type, for reproducing the letter Y or y. </li></ul><ul><li> </li></ul>
    4. 5. Quantities: Three forms One triangle and two trapezoid Three linear forms Three separates areas One triangle
    5. 6. Y is theorized to have evolved from proto-voweltaic ancestors which roamed the Earth billions and billions of years ago. Later, in 1066 , a horrific and bloody civil war erupted in France over Y's ambiguous vowel / consonant status. There were no survivors. Continuing this bloody history, Congress decreed Y to be an unnecessary addition to the alphabet in December 8th, 1769, on the grounds that can be replaced by I under pretty much every conceivable circumstance. Y was already envious of I and his resemblance of an erect penis , and proceeded to go on a bloody rampage during the biannual Alphabet Gathering Convention Meeting Assembly Thing (AGCMAT). However, Congress re-assessed its decision and concluded that Y was useful in the popular internet combination of &quot;( o Y o )&quot;, representing female breasts . Unfortunately, there were losses during Y's Rampage of the Alphabet Congress, the only notable ones being the annihilation of the letters &quot; Þ &quot; (pronounced &quot;grojj&quot;) and &quot; Æ &quot; (pronounced &quot;penis&quot;, and later replaced by the letter J ). Interesting Fact
    6. 7. Phenomenology Phase IB
    7. 8. Phenomenology: to be or do <ul><li>justify cognition (and some also evaluation and action) with reference to what Edmund Husserl called Evidenz , which is awareness of a matter itself as disclosed in the most clear, distinct, and adequate way for something of its kind </li></ul><ul><li>believe that not only objects in the natural and cultural worlds, but also ideal objects, such as numbers, and even conscious life itself can be made evident and thus known </li></ul><ul><li>hold that inquiry ought to focus upon what might be called &quot;encountering&quot; as it is directed at objects and, correlatively, upon &quot;objects as they are encountered&quot; (this terminology is not widely shared, but the emphasis on a dual problematics and the reflective approach it requires is) </li></ul><ul><li>recognize the role of description in universal, a priori, or &quot;eidetic&quot; terms as prior to explanation by means of causes, purposes, or grounds </li></ul><ul><li>debate whether or not what Husserl calls the transcendental phenomenological epochê and reduction is useful or even possible </li></ul>
    8. 9. Phenomenology: to be or do cont. <ul><li>philosophical reflections of Edmund Husserl in Germany during the mid-1890s and is thus over a century old </li></ul><ul><li>Because of its reflective, evidential, and descriptive approach to both encounterings and objects as encountered, the beginning of phenomenology is sometimes characterized as &quot;descriptive phenomenology.&quot; </li></ul><ul><li>Realistic phenomenology emphasizes the search for the universal essences of various sorts of matters, including human actions, motives, and selves. </li></ul><ul><li>Constitutive phenomenology 's extends Husserl's scope to include philosophy of the natural sciences, which has been continued in later generations . </li></ul><ul><li>Existential phenomenology was actually to use an analysis of human being as a means to a fundamental ontology that went beyond the regional ontologies described by Husserl. </li></ul>
    9. 10. Phenomenology: not to be or do <ul><li>oppose the acceptance of unobservable matters and grand systems erected in speculative thinking </li></ul><ul><li>oppose naturalism (also called objectivism and positivism), which is the worldview growing from modern natural science and technology that has been spreading from Northern Europe since the Renaissance </li></ul>
