The Body Economic

Life, Death, and Sensation in Political Economy and the Victorian Novel

Author: Catherine Gallagher

Publisher: Princeton University Press

ISBN: 1400826845

Category: Literary Criticism

Page: 224

View: 8489

The Body Economic revises the intellectual history of nineteenth-century Britain by demonstrating that political economists and the writers who often presented themselves as their literary antagonists actually held most of their basic social assumptions in common. Catherine Gallagher demonstrates that political economists and their Romantic and early-Victorian critics jointly relocated the idea of value from the realm of transcendent spirituality to that of organic "life," making human sensations--especially pleasure and pain--the sources and signs of that value. Classical political economy, this book shows, was not a mechanical ideology but a form of nineteenth-century organicism, which put the body and its feelings at the center of its theories, and neoclassical economics built itself even more self-consciously on physiological premises. The Body Economic explains how these shared views of life, death, and sensation helped shape and were modified by the two most important Victorian novelists: Charles Dickens and George Eliot. It reveals how political economists interacted crucially with the life sciences of the nineteenth century--especially with psychophysiology and anthropology--producing the intellectual world that nurtured not only George Eliot's realism but also turn-of-the-century literary modernism.

The excessive and inappropriate collection, retention, and sharing of personal information leads to Identity Obesity over time as people continue to mismanage their private information. Unlike overeating, it can be extremely hard to reverse the effects of identity obesity which forms the root cause of an identity theft epidemic. Despite the dangers, consumers and companies handle personal information carelessly, without understanding or caring enough about the risks. Consider these startling statistics: •

Multi-Label Dimensionality Reduction

Author: Liang Sun,Shuiwang Ji,Jieping Ye

Publisher: CRC Press

ISBN: 1439806160

Category: Business & Economics

Page: 208

View: 4448

Similar to other data mining and machine learning tasks, multi-label learning suffers from dimensionality. An effective way to mitigate this problem is through dimensionality reduction, which extracts a small number of features by removing irrelevant, redundant, and noisy information. The data mining and machine learning literature currently lacks a unified treatment of multi-label dimensionality reduction that incorporates both algorithmic developments and applications. Addressing this shortfall, Multi-Label Dimensionality Reduction covers the methodological developments, theoretical properties, computational aspects, and applications of many multi-label dimensionality reduction algorithms. It explores numerous research questions, including: How to fully exploit label correlations for effective dimensionality reduction How to scale dimensionality reduction algorithms to large-scale problems How to effectively combine dimensionality reduction with classification How to derive sparse dimensionality reduction algorithms to enhance model interpretability How to perform multi-label dimensionality reduction effectively in practical applications The authors emphasize their extensive work on dimensionality reduction for multi-label learning. Using a case study of Drosophila gene expression pattern image annotation, they demonstrate how to apply multi-label dimensionality reduction algorithms to solve real-world problems. A supplementary website provides a MATLAB® package for implementing popular dimensionality reduction algorithms.
