拍微电影,没什么必须要走的路,可以从任何地方起步。但起步之前,需要对拍微电影有个较为正确的认知。 拍微电影,很多人以为是关于“拍”的问题,而实际上,“拍”只是一个关于微电影实现的动作而已,好比露在水面上的冰山上一角,只是冰山庞大山体的很小部分。拍微电影这座冰山,更多的是关于“拍什么”、“怎么拍”这些隐藏在水面之下不为大多数人知道的真正内涵所在。所以,本课程从水面上可见的冰山一角——“拍”开始,逐渐深入水面之下,挖掘“拍什么”、“怎么拍”的问题,揭开冰山的真相。

Our relationship to Beethoven is a deep and paradoxical one. For many musicians, he represents a kind of holy grail: His music has an intensity, rigor, and profundity which keep us in its thrall, and it is perhaps unequalled in the interpretive, technical, and even spiritual challenges it poses to performers. At the same time, Beethoven’s music is casually familiar to millions of people who do not attend concerts or consider themselves musically inclined. Two hundred years after his death, he is everywhere in the culture, yet still represents its summit. This course takes an inside-out look at the 32 piano sonatas from the point of view of a performer.

What is the purpose of government? Why should we have a State? What kind of State should we have? Even within a political community, there may be sharp disagreements about the role and purpose of government. Some want an active, involved government, seeing legal and political institutions as the means to solve our most pressing problems, and to help bring about peace, equality, justice, happiness, and to protect individual liberty. Others want a more minimal government, motivated, perhaps, by some of the disastrous political experiments of the 20th Century, and the thought that political power is often just a step away from tyranny. In many cases, these disagreements arise out of deep philosophical disagreements.
