 Critical Theory (Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy)
According to these theorists, a “critical” theory may be distinguished from a “traditional” theory according to a specific practical purpose: a theory is critical to the extent that it seeks human emancipation, “to liberate human beings from the circumstances that enslave them” (Horkheimer 1982, 244).
The theory of ideology, therefore, analyzes the ways in which linguistic-symbolic meanings are used to encode, produce, and reproduce relations of power and domination, even within institutional spheres of communication and interaction governed by norms that make democratic ideals explicit in normative procedures and constraints.
The lesson for a critical theory of globalization is to see the extension of political space and the redistribution of political power not only as a constraint similar to complexity but also as an open field of opportunities for innovative, distributive, and multiperspectival forms of publicity and democracy.

 IndustryWeek : The Theory Of Constraints Exposed
Through the synthesis of the Theory of Constraints and lean manufacturing techniques, continuous improvement efforts and ultimately, performance improvement are no longer measured over periods of years, but weeks.
When one looks at the Theory of Constraints, the underlying principle emphasizes the importance of identifying and eliminating bottlenecks (constraints) in the manufacturing process-not only to increase productivity, but as a tool for measuring and controlling the flow of materials.
Recently, the idea of synthesizing lean and the Theory of Constraints was utilized by a major Tier One automotive supplier with two goals: to provide better clarity and focus by identifying true constraints, and to spend less time collecting data and more time solving problems.

At any rate, it is clear (as this report will illustrate) that theory is an essential part of almost everything we do today in the field of computing and especially in the growing connections of computing to other scientific disciplines and the burgeoning new field of electronic commerce.
Although the role of theory (and indeed computing itself) can on occasion be merely as a tool in support of other areas, just as often theory's true role is that of guiding light, providing the models needed for understanding and the innovations that inspire whole new directions of endeavor.
As another example, the theory of NP-completeness shows that a wide variety of problems arising from all areas of computer science, from artificial intelligence, to operations research, to compilation, to networking, to VLSI CAD, are all in an important sense just equivalent variants on the same basic (difficult) problem.

 Erik Olin Wright's Home Page
A range of important issues will get at most cursory treatment: the theory of imperialism and capitalism as a world system; accumulation and crisis theory; the theoretical and historical evaluation of socialist revolutions and communist regimes; the analysis of gender relations and male domination; and the problem of racial domination.
It is a fundamental tenet of Marxist theories of the state that the state in capitalist society is deeply shaped and constrained by the class relations of capitalism, but this leaves quite open the extent to which progressive change can be achieved within those constraints.
Between these extremes are a varietry of theoretical and political positions which see the constraints on radical change imposed by the capitalist state as variable, both in terms of the kinds of changes they permit and the extent to which struggles can transform the constraints themselves.

 LINGUIST List 7.95: Optimality theory, DIALOGUE'96 (extension to 1/31)
BCN Workshop on Conflicting Constraints Groningen University July 5, 1996 CALL FOR PAPERS In Optimality Theory (OT), grammars are sets of simultaneous, soft constraints.
Viewing a grammar as a set of simultaneous well-formedness constraints instead of viewing it as a set of operations in a sequential algorithm, is already a standard view in generative grammar.
Conflicts are resolved by ranking the constraints on the ground of their relative strength.

 Turning pervasive computing into mediated spaces
A natural-language agent provides a list of the most recently mentioned hotels; device agents report relevant pen gestures (circling or pointing to a hotel icon); a user-interface agent reports which hotels are currently being displayed.
Enumerating all of the topics may be important for later information extraction ("what did we talk about in that meeting?"), and so on.
Topic tracking involves the integration of human-human dialog models (how language is used to signal topic changes), speech recognition (how prosody is used to signal topic changes), and visual recognition (how gesture is used to signal topic changes).

This paper looks at the constraints placed on these conditions to show that similar processes occur in visual language as in the sequential structure of other forms of language.
Notable topics include how 'speech' and 'thought balloons' derive meaning, and the integration of text and image into unified increments.
It covers topics such as the muddled definition of "comics" and its relation to visual language, how sequences of images communicate, and child visual language learning, plus a lot more.

 Deliberative Discourse | Theory
Participants should be equal in the sense that they have adequate and equal opportunities for discovering and validating (within the time constraints necessarily imposed by the need for a decision) the choice on the matter that would best serve the participant’s interest.
A better alternative would be for the expert panel to produce a publicly-accessible (and searchable) archive of topical information beyond that found in the initial information packet provided to participants.
For fear of the discourse being captured by aggressive moderators (in the ideal discourse no one is substantively more powerful than anyone else), critical theorists do not include a moderator in their deliberative discourse architectures.

 Participatory Genre, by Thomas Erickson
By discourse medium, I mean to focus on the constraints and affordances of the technology which supports the conversation (I prefer this term to"user interface" because interface is often understood as referring to icons and menus, and because it does not include the content).
That is, in contrast to mailing lists and certain bulletin board systems, in which each contribution to a conversation is a separate document that can (and must) be opened and closed independently, the Cafe Utne conversational system treats each conversation as a single entity which is opened or closed as a whole.
Similarly, for the reader of a mailing list, having to open a separate message is a bit more effort, and the one-liner which could have been easily skimmed or skipped in the context of a conversation document is more likely to be annoying than amusing.
