About

Since 2005 Professor Clark has exclusively addressed two interlocking sets of research areas with regards to the First Ecumenical Council of Nicea‘s {AD 325} and its consequential impact on the history of modernity. In particular, the Council‘s promulgation of the first unified Christian theological doctrine which, amongst the setting out of a number of seminal, doctrinal positions, had formulated two foundational principles: one, the dyadic relationship between creatio ex nihlo and creatio ex materia and the correlative dyad of infinitude and finitude, and two; the trichotomic, theological anthropology. It is argued that these two doctrinal positions form the genealogical backbone of one: “The Argument from [Human] Creativity {AHC}” which I first outlined in my paper, ‘Computation, Aesthetics, and Representation: A Critical Examination of the ‘ “The Thesis of Computational Sufficiency & Explanation” and the Incorporation of The Argument from {Human} Creativity ’ {2007} and two; modernist anthropologies of autotomized, {creative} self-consciousness canonically initiated with the work of Rene Descartes and Emmanuel Kant. The focus of this research centers on two seemingly unrelated subject areas: computationalist models of mind, intelligence and AI, and, film theory and aesthetics. In particular, Turing‘s Ph.D. Thesis of 1939, “Systems of Logic based on Ordinals,“ and his paper of 1950, “Computing Machinery and Intelligence, and In the case of Godel,“ his 1931 paper, “On formally undecidable propositions of Principia Mathematica and related systems. With regards to the aesthetics of film, the work of the contemporary French film director, Bruno Dumont.
