This volume gathers notable critics and philosophers to engage the predominant impasse of an emerging era of climate change and ecocatastrophic acceleration: that is, how to conceptual and critical practices inherited from 20th century master-thinkers—who took no account of these emergences and logics—alter, adapt, mutate, or undergo translation at the current moment. Rather than assume that the humanities and philosophic practices of the past routed in the rethinking of language and power are suspended as irrelevant before mutations of the biosphere itself, Telemorphosis asks how, in fact, the latter have always been imbricated in these cognitive and linguistic practices and remain so, which is also to ask how a certain violence returns, today, to entirely different fields of reference. The writers in the volume ask, implicitly, how the 21st century horizons that exceed any political, economic, or conceptual models alters or redefines a series of key topoi. These range through figures of sexual difference, bioethics, care, species invasion, war, post-carbon thought, ecotechnics, time, and so on. As such, the volume is also a dossier on what metamorphoses await the legacies of “humanistic” thought in adapting to, or rethinking, the other materialities that impinge on contemporary “life as we know it.”

– erm, I mean, reported – for the independent t-test pretty much apply for the dependent t-test. In this example the R output tells us that the value of t was 2.47, that this was based on 11 degrees of freedom, and that it was significant at p = .031. We can also see the means for each group. We could write this as: On average, participants experienced significantly greater anxiety from real spiders (M = 47.00, SE = 3.18) than from pictures of spiders (M = 40.00, SE = 2.68), t(11) = 2.47, p <

was different for men and women. She picked 48 students: 24 male and 24 female. She then took groups of eight participants to a nightclub and gave them no alcohol (participants received placebo drinks of alcohol-free lager), 2 pints of strong lager, or 4 pints of strong lager. At the end of the evening she took a photograph of the person that the participant was chatting up. She then got a pool of independent judges to assess the attractiveness of the person in each photograph (out of 100). The

considered only when you have three or more repeated-measures conditions. If you use the ezANOVA() function then test for sphericity using Mauchly’s test. If the p-value is less than .05 then the assumption is violated. If the significance of Mauchly’s test is greater than .05 then the assumption of sphericity has been met. If the assumption of sphericity has been met then use the p-value for the main ANOVA. If the assumption was violated then read the p-value corrected using either the

If you’d like to know a bit more about William Kruskal (Figure 15.7) then there is a lovely biography by Fienberg, Stigler, and Tanur (2007). I read a story in a newspaper claiming that scientists had discovered that the chemical genistein, which occurs naturally in soya, was linked to lowered sperm counts in Western males. In fact, when you read the actual study, it had been conducted on rats, it found no link to lowered sperm counts, but there was evidence of abnormal sexual development in
