There are many other less common definitions, and seemingly all of them, even those having nothing explicitly to do with death or the afterlife, bring at least a little bit of a chill: a false, displaced, or secondary reflection through a lens; a trace or suggestion, like the ghost of a smile; a red blood cell that has lost hemoglobin; someone unacknowledged who does invisible work; a writer whose name never appears on a book jacket; a fake company set up for dubious tax or legal reasons; a book listed in a bibliography that never really existed.
These important philosophical relationships will be examined through the Marcellian themes of ontological exigence, intersubjective being, and secondary reflection. Marcel's relationships with these philosophers are not serendipitous.
To simplify the analysis, a metal solid target is assumed to be placed on the smooth ground during the simulation and the model calculation, the surface of the target and background are the mirror reflection, and the diffraction effects can be ignored, so only the two-ray propagation (the target direct reflection and the ground secondary reflection) is taken into account.
One of Marcel's worries about the whole Cartesian approach is that it overlooks the realms of conceptual and non-conceptual knowledge, or to use Marcel's special terms, the realms of primary reflection and secondary reflection, and the corresponding realms of problem and mystery (of which more later).
That literature and the arts may become under such an editorial perspective merely vehicles for a secondary reflection on and a reaction to primary events of a technological nature implies a lesser role for literature and the arts in the overall understanding of human culture.
So I think it's important to make a distinction between poetry which is (and should be, as far as I'm concerned) Ivory Tower, the politics of which come as a secondary reflection or concomitant potential but not as the central purpose, and the distinction between that and deliberate, intentional ...
As Anderson's Commentary on Volume I: Reflections and Mystery, the table of contents and the general introduction announce, Marcel reflects in the first volume on the quest to reflectively clarify "Who am I?", or "What is the intelligibility and value of human existence?" He does this successively through chapters examining: (1) Introduction, (2) A Broken World, (3) The Need for Transcendence, (4) Truth as a Value: The Intelligible Milieu, (5) Primary and Secondary Reflection: The Existential Reference Point, (6) Feeling as a Mode of Participation, (7) Being in a Situation, (8) 'My Life', (9) Togetherness: Identity and Depth, and (10) Presence as a Mystery.
THE central theme of Marcel, secondary reflection, which will be discussed shortly, is in some sense at the heart of philosophical issues intensely discussed today, thus showing a continued point of relevance of Marcel's thought.
While such critiques took aim at discriminatory mythologies in the name of an essentialized notion of black authenticity, Hall showed that representations are not secondary reflections of given identities but actually gain primacy in structuring the formative identifications by which dia-sporic blackness always exists in a condition of multiplicity.
Secondly, that up to four groups of secondary reflections could be captured, thus, managing physical isolation (in time) among the reflections of the object being measured and the reflections that will be present through the loudspeaker.
Improved correlation for the secondary reflections section may be also achieved by further enhancing the single line model via manual adjustments.
