What really does the concept of the "public" mean, at a moment defined not only by the "structural transformation of the public sphere" (in which the forces of polling, advertising, and public relations have fundamentally altered the meaning of the public in early modern political theory), but also by the emergence of "diasporic public spheres" (in which global cinema, the Internet, and other teletechnical devices allow for a structural noncoincidence
between certain public spheres and the territories of the nation-states in which they operate), and the rise of the "society of the spectacle," in which postmodern "images" begin to exercise a new power that resembles nothing so much as the forms of premodern religious belief (Habermas 1991; Appadurai 1996, 21, 36, 101-13; Debord 1995; cf.
In this discussion we see that Deckung, which is sometimes misleadingly translated into English as "coinciding," really implies a kind of overlaying in which difference, or noncoincidence
, is preserved.
1, (ii) the spatial distortion due to spatial variability of aerosols and imperfect comparison between an average grid-cell value and a spot measurement, and (iii) a temporal distortion due to the temporal variability of aerosols and the highly likely noncoincidence
between the ground-truth measurement periods and the overpass times of the polar-orbiting satellites.
Desire can thus be viewed as a result of the noncoincidence
of language/culture/meaning and the fact of being.
For Hardt and Negri, as for Geertz, anthropology may be the discipline that has produced static notions of culture and identity, but it is also the discipline capable of destabilizing these notions, with an ever-greater interest in "divergence and multiplicity" and "the noncoincidence
of kinds and categories" (Geertz 246).
Again, see Andrew Bennett for an alternative interpretation which argues that Wordsworth's defacement of Coleridge involves a "willed noncoincidence
of printed and handwritten poems" (93).
Analyzing closely this and other passages in Bakhtin's "Response," Caryl Emerson emphasizes that the thinker's relational cultural theory is premised on a series of separatist prerequisites: "outsideness, boundaries, noncoincidence
, and a love for difference are the first [of Bakhtin's] prerequisites for creatively understanding another person or another culture--and for being creatively understood by them" (111).
The number and coincidence or noncoincidence
of the infrared and Raman active bands predicted according to factor group analysis for the [[nu].
of "focus" is illustrated in example (3) below.
of the median voter's interest with social welfare introduces another force in the model.
The fluid rhythm of the poetry and the flexible and varied rhythm of the music do not always coincide in Du Fay's settings, but these moments of noncoincidence
do take place within a framework of coincidence at a larger level; and particularly at the phrase level, coincidence is nearly absolute.
His wide popularity in many disciplines "owes something to the fact that modernism, with its hierarchical and universalizing impulses, was at base monologic, whereas the postmodern temperament finds something congenial in Bakhtin's insistence on noncoincidence
, incompatibility, and otherness" (Emerson, 1997, p.
