[Solved] LibreOffice File format error found at SAXParse

Postby RoxaNoel » Wed Jan 11, 2017 1:05 am

I also have a corrupted .docx file, and I do not have the skills to repair it myself; do not lecture me on using .docx, I never ever use it normally, I just had to modify something on a preexisting .docx file and forgot to change the format!

Thanks a lot :(

I extracted your text with Notepad++. In Notepad++ Go Search > Replace ..., with search argument <[^>]+> and replace argument is blank. Be sure to tick Regular Expressions. Click Replace All.

PHIL 596Jack ZupkoUniversity of AlbertaRoxane NoëlWinter 2017 Directed Reading in Medieval Philosophy The focus of this directed reading will be on the medieval notion of intentionality, with special emphasis on Peter Abelard. There are two common meanings attached to the word “intentional”. In its first, everyday sense, an intentional act is an act that was made willingfully by an agent. By contrast, an unintentional act is accidental and so wasn’t intended by the agent. This sense is often at play when it comes to moral questions: Can someone be good even without good intentions? Is a good intention sufficient for an action to be good, even though it ends up triggering unforeseen negative consequences? In this area, Abelard is well-known for his very demanding intentionalist ethics. According to him, when it comes to evaluating the moral character of actions and/or people, the only important factor is the intentions of the agent; consequences are morally irrelevant. But there is also another, more technical sense of “intentional” that is better known to current readers through the work of Brentano. In this sense, an intentional act is an act that has the property of an act to be directed towards something else, from the Latin tendere, being in tension. Brentano is well known for stating that intentionality is the mark of the mental, but the notion was broader for the scholastics. For them, intentionality was an important trait of cognitive acts, but was not only limited to mental phenomena. The aim of this directed reading is then twofold. First, I want to clarifiy what the links between the two senses of intentionality are. Abelard seems like an interesting choice since he not only writes about intentionalist ethics, but he also explores the intentional character of the mind in Tractatus de Intellectibus; even though there are a few occurences of the latin word “intentio” in the text, however, the notion is not fully thematized. This brings me to my second goal, which is to clarify to what extent Abelard’s characterization of cognitive acts fits in the medieval tradition of thinking about intentionality. I would especially like to see how close he is to other medieval thinkers but also to the ways more contemporary authors have thought about intentionality.Principal Readings Klima, Gyula (ed.)

Do not lecture me on using .docx.

This failure is probably caused by LO formatting the .docx file incorrectly which is not surprising seeing how deliberately? over complex the .docx "standard" is; and how Microsoft itself does not adhere to it! Some words of advice, if not a lecture, are definitely in order :super: - see [Tutorial] Differences between Writer and MS Word files for why you should always work in and save files as .odt.

Hopefully this has most of your formatting as well as the text.
