Heidegger and Marcuse: The Catastrophe and Redemption of History

This brief e-book contrasts the philosophies of know-how of Heidegger and Marcuse, one in all Heidegger's megastar students, and relates their paintings to modern expertise reviews. Feenberg units out the historic and theoretical historical past of the controversy, then discusses every one philosopher's idea in flip, and ends with a major research of the consequences for modern expertise reports.

Sample text

LbL films are generally prepared under mild aqueous conditions, making them an attractive alternative to other film-deposition methods. Furthermore, LbL film deposition is nondiscriminatory toward template size, shape, or material. Enormous potential has been recognized for the biosciences field [12, 14–16]. Specifically, LbL has provided a means for templating biomolecules without sacrificing structure or bioactivity. The most far-reaching example is the controlled cell adhesion and even the inclusion of layers containing living cells [17–19].

29 30 2 Multifunctional Layer-by-Layer Architectures for Biological Applications method for biomaterial engineering. Click chemistry has the advantage that it is highly selective, thus mostly preventing undesired side reactions from occurring. Wischerhoff and coworkers [115] have recently described another unique application of LbL assembly toward the tunable adhesion of cells. The main focus of this work was to develop a new method of controlling the thickness of polymer brushes on solid substrates.

The Strasbourg team recently established a completely new technique for the development of templates that could be used toward tissue engineering based on sprayed PEMs with embedded cells [18, 134]. These templates have been used toward the stimulation of cells via incorporation of hormones within the film. Substrates were initially prepared using (HA/PLL) multilayers, followed by the formation of a thin calcium-alginate/cell gel layer. This cell layer was deposited via spraying a solution of alginate with dispersed fibroblast followed by spraying a Ca2+ solution, and resulting in surface gel formation.
