Malthus, Medicine & Morality - , Preview:

Thomas Robert Malthus's reputation has lately been rehabilitated in the fields of social biology, demography, environmentalism, and economics. In the midst of this current interest and with the chance to mark the occasion of the bicentenary of the first edition of the Essay on Population (1798), the contributors to this volume take this timely opportunity to examine the historical conditions in which Malthus constructed his theory, and in which the concept of a 'Malthusian' and 'Neo-Malthusian' philosophy first emerged. The essays redress the balance between Malthus's original argument, the immediate responses to Malthus by medics and theologians in Britain and on the Continent, and some of the ways that his ideas were later attacked, appropriated, or misrepresented. Included here are essays that not only re-evaluate the development of Malthus's theory, but also offer critical perspectives on the generation of the 'Malthusian league' and debates about birth control in Britain and on the Continent, and Malthus's influence on the emergence of social science and Darwinian evolutionary biology..

Socrates, The Original and its Images - Alan F. Blum Preview:

This book, first published in 1978, is a radical approach to the philosophical distinction between Being and beings, in which the life of Socrates is used as the metaphor for the theoretical life, in contrast to the continuous historical interest in that life as an object for biographical reconstruction and description. Professor Blum’s main concern is to develop a story that coordinates stages of the theoretical life to practices which exemplify man’s ideal relationship with language..

In the summer of 2004, attorney Audrey Sandersen was severely injured in an auto accident and encountered a near-death experience unlike any other.

There, she learned the basic revelations about life and its purposes intended only for those passing from one existence to another. After she recovered, Sandersen contacted author Russell Thornton, to help her write a book about what she had learned. But, a group of religious fanatics tried to stop her. When their threatening calls failed, her home was torched and then his computer storing the manuscript was stolen. This is the dramatic story of what Sandersen learned and the battle she and Thornton faced in trying to share it with the world.

Dragon Captives - Lisa McMann Preview:

Ten years after Alex and Aaron Stowe brought peace to Quill and Artimé, their younger twin sisters journey beyond the islands in this New York Times bestselling first novel of a new sequel series to The Unwanteds, which Kirkus Reviews called “The Hunger Games meets Harry Potter.” Identical twins Fifer and Thisbe Stowe have amazing yet uncontrollable magical abilities. They’re naturally more gifted than even their brother, Alex, the head mage of Artimé, could hope to be. But when they accidentally use their magic in the jungle of Artimé to strike down a beloved creature, Alex is furious, and threatens to lock them away until they can learn to control their power. The threat is soon forgotten, though, when Hux, the ice blue dragon, comes to Artimé bearing the horrible news that his siblings have been enslaved by the notoriously evil Revinir, ruler of the dragon land. Seeking a chance to right their wrong and escape their brother’s wrath, Thisbe, Fifer, and their friend Seth sneak away to rescue the dragons from grave peril. Will their untrained abilities be enough to save the dragons—and themselves—when they come face-to-face with the Revinir?.

The Quest for Purpose - Perry L. Glanzer,Jonathan P. Hill,Byron R. Johnson Preview:

Demonstrates how students and educators can resist narrow, utilitarian views of higher education’s purpose. While the search for meaning and purpose appears to be a constant throughout human history, there are characteristics about our current time period that make this search different from any other previous time, particularly for college students. In this book, Perry L. Glanzer, Jonathan P. Hill, and Byron R. Johnson explore college students’ search for meaning and purpose and the role that higher education plays. To shed empirical light on this complex issue, the authors draw on in-depth interviews with four hundred college students from different types of institutions across the United States. They also analyze three sets of national survey data: the National Study of Youth and Religion, College Students Beliefs and Values, and their own Gallup-conducted survey of 2,500 college students. Their research identifies important social, educational, and cultural influences that shape students’ quests and the answers they find. Arguing against a utilitarian view of education, Glanzer, Hill, and Johnson conclude that colleges and universities can and should cultivate and aid students in their journeys, and they offer suggestions for doing so..

Flann O'Brien & Modernism - Julian Murphet,Ronan McDonald,Sascha Morrell Preview:

Flann O'Brien & Modernism brings a much-needed refreshment to the state of scholarship on this increasingly recognised but still widely misunderstood 'second generation' modernist. Rather than construe him as a postmodernist, it correctly locates O'Brien's work as the product of a late modernist sensibility and cultural context. Similarly, while there should be no doubt of his Irishness, and his profound debts to Irish language, history and culture, this collection seeks to understand O'Brien's nationally sensitive achievement as the work of an internationalist whose preoccupations reflect global modernist trends. The distinct themes and concerns tracked in Flann O'Brien & Modernism include characterization in branching narrative forms; the ethics and paradoxes of naming; parody and homage; lies and deception; theatricality; sexuality; technology and transport; and the inevitable matter of drink and intoxication. Taken together, these specific topics construct a mosaic image of O'Brien as an exemplary modernist auteur, abreast of all the most salient philosophical and technical concerns affecting literary production in the period immediately before and after World War Two..

This is the third and final volume of Douglas Monroe's Merlyn series. The Dark Age of Druidism of Merlyn was entirely based upon the teachings of the Pheryllt, a British Megalithic Priesthood whose practices and philosophies set the essence of what later Druidiwm would become - set, quite literally, in stone. Drawing once again upon the 16th Century Book of Pheryllt in addition to countless other volumes from Plato to Einstein, the author clearly establishes that the answers to nature's deepest questions lie well within our capacity to grasp - providing we understand how to look at the completed picture.Does the mind possess supernormal abilities? Does individuality survive bodily death? Is rebirth the evolutionary design of a Creator? As a young military commander in training, Arthur now faces his deepest trials as he challenges Merlyn with these three ultimate questions. Alongside him, begin your own quest to search out - and find! - answers to these and many other age-old mysteries..
