Telos IV is a fictional planet in the Star Wars Expanded Universe. Telos was originally featured in the Star Wars: Jedi Apprentice series. The planet is also mentioned in Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic, and is featured in the video game duology Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic II: The Sith Lords, produced by Lucas Arts and Obsidian Entertainment.
TELOS was founded in May 1968 to provide the New Left with a coherent theoretical perspective. It sought to expand the Husserlian diagnosis of "the crisis of European sciences" to prefigure a particular program of social reconstruction relevant for the US. In order to avoid the high level of abstraction typical of Husserlian phenomenology, the journal began introducing the ideas of Western Marxism and of the Critical Theory of the Frankfurt School.
Telos is a fictional planet from the British science fiction television series Doctor Who. It is an arid and mountainous planet, with little sign of vegetation. Beneath its surface, however, are the legendary tombs of the Cybermen.
A telos (from the Greek word for "end", "purpose", or "goal," pronounced TEE-los) is an end or purpose, in a fairly constrained sense used by philosophers such as Aristotle. It is the root of the term "teleology," roughly the study of purposiveness, or the study of objects with a view to their aims, purposes, or intentions. Teleology figures centrally in Aristotle's biology and in his theory of causes.
