    This thesis explores the effects of music upon the cognitive processing of visual information. The objective is to address how alterations of specific aspects within the musical structure may influence the interpretation of visual scenarios. Background is provided from film-sound theory, studies of the expressive capabilities of sound in film, theories of connotation related to musical tonality, music cognition and implications of neuroscientific research on human emotion. Two studies follow, one empirical and the other the creation of an intermedia-based analytical tool supporting experimental design. The empirical research is focused on the influence of tonal dissonance, using an invariant visual scene. The results show strong evidence in support of the effect of tonal dissonance level (in film music) on interpretations of emotion in a short animated film. These confirm previous research by this author on how music may assign meaning within audiovisual contexts. The design of experimental intermedia tools is aimed at exploring the various ways in which music may shape the semantic processing of visual contexts, and to analyze how these processes might be evaluated in an empirical setting. These designs incorporate a variety of potential variables in both musical sound and transformations of the visual stimuli for experimental purposes. The conclusion discusses further research envisioned for systematic evaluations of the multiple and subtle ways music functions in the comprehension of visual domains

    This article sets out to demonstrate that considering Islamophobia as a form of racism prevents us from fully grasping the complexity of this phenomenon. The author contends that there are different types of Islamophobia and while some are racist, others are not. To argue this point, he draws on a conflict that was sparked within a Spanish extreme right party revolving around two different conceptions of the human being and society, one rooted in the v√∂lkisch tradition and the other in the Catholic tradition. By analyzing the only book the leader of that party wrote, we see how these two conceptions engendered two different types of Islamophobia: one v√∂lkisch, the other Catholic. Both share the same vision of Islam as a vital "threat" to the "West", but they differ in their understanding of the foundations of the Muslim and European identities: racist versus religious perspectivesEn este art√≠culo se trata de demostrar que considerar que la islamofobia es una forma de racismo impide comprender la complejidad del fen√≥meno. Se defiende que existen diferentes tipos de islamofobia y que algunos de ellos son racistas, pero que otros no lo son. Para ello, se mostrar√° que en el seno de un partido espa√Īol de extrema derecha se produjo un conflicto entre dos concepciones diferentes del ser humano y de la sociedad, una procedente de la tradici√≥n v√∂lkisch y otra procedente de la tradici√≥n cat√≥lica. Gracias al an√°lisis del √ļnico libro que public√≥ el l√≠der del partido, veremos que de esas dos concepciones se derivaban dos tipos diferentes de islamofobia: una v√∂lkisch y otra cat√≥lica. Ambas compart√≠an una misma visi√≥n del islam como una "amenaza" vital para "Occidente", pero difer√≠an en cuanto a c√≥mo entend√≠an los fundamentos de la identidad musulmana y europea: una a partir de presupuestos raciales, la otra a partir de presupuestos religioso

    The author presents and synthesizes the thought of Bello as to what is known as the doctrine of clarity, which is linked, in modem thought, to the theory of truth. For this, he uses, among others, in the philosophy of Descartes and the British empiricism, which Bello received strong influences.    El autor expone y sintetiza el pensamiento de Bello respecto a lo que se conoce como doctrina de la claridad, la cual está vinculada, en el pensamiento moderno, a la teoría de la verdad. Para ello, se sirve entre otros, en la filosofía de Descartes y el empirismo inglés, del cual Bello recibió fuertes influjos.
