This happens on the web of course or else this book wouldn’t exist. All of the elements of design communicate to us, either literally through words and images or on a more invisible level. This book is the focus of the latter elements, the invisible ones. Colours, brands, tone of voice, icons, typefaces, they all reveal more of the story and if given the consideration they deserve they will contribute to a more fulfilling user experience for the target audience.
Biology is chemistry on an impressive scale. It is a product of evolution, the
outcome of countless random experiments, resulting in the exquisite
complexity of the biological world of which we are a part. Setting aside any
philosophical considerations, living organisms - including ourselves - are
simply nothing more than wet, floppy bags of chemistry: complicated
mixtures of molecules interacting in a multitude of ways. All this takes place
mainly in ...
"The best mode of exciting the love of observation is by teaching 'How to Observe.' With this end it was
originally intended to produce, in one or two volumes, a series of hints for travellers and students, calling their
attention to the points necessary for inquiry or observation in the different branches of Geology, Natural
History, Agriculture, the Fine Arts, General Statistics, and Social Manners.
The so-called “dual-use dilemma” arises in the context of research in the biological
and other sciences as a consequence of the fact that one and the same piece of scien-
tific research sometimes has the potential to be used for harm as well as for good.
A dual-use dilemma is an ethical dilemma, and an ethical dilemma for the
researcher (and for those who have the power or authority to assist or impede the
researcher’s work, e.g., governments). It is an ethical dilemma since it is about
promoting good in the context of the potential for also causing harm, e.g.,...
This book attempts two interrelated tasks. The fi rst is to arrive at an understanding
of practical knowledge and how expertise is related to it. The
second is to show how such an understanding informs the various educational
tasks of developing expertise.
What is counselling psychology? This is a frequent question, both
from those who are seeking to understand the work of counselling
psychologists and at times from counselling psychologists themselves.
In the course of undertaking and working on this project we
have had many long conversations in which we sometimes could
answer this question and at other times became confused or unconfident.
This left us curious about the links between our experience
and the field itself.
Since this book first came out in 1995 to gratifying reviews, the ante has gone up
considerably for it and related enterprises. For a start, practically all the material it
covers is available on the web; secondly, encyclopaediae of cognitive science (here, CS)
are beginning to proliferate. This makes the job of synthesis ever more important.
Readers looking for new material would be better rewarded by this book’s companion
volume Being Human (nothing to do with the Robin Williams movie!).

In the Christian tradition, the doctrine of ‘just war’ has evolved throughout the last 1,700
years, originating with St. Augustine and later significantly shaped by St Thomas Aquinas,
both of whom developed ideas of the Greek philosopher Aristotle and the Roman philosopher
Saint Augustine (354-430) served as Bishop of Hippo for 34 years. His idea of just
war has two foundations. The first, owing much to the Eastern religious traditions, is that in
all things a person should not act out of selfish considerations.
The basic question of the longer work that volume one introduces is a
deceptively simple one: What sorts of conduct may the state rightly make
criminal? Philosophers have attempted to answer this question by proposing
what I call "liberty-limiting principles" (or equivalently, "coercion-legitimizing
principles") which state that a given type of consideration is always a
morally relevant reason in support of penal legislation even if other reasons
may in the circumstances outweigh it.
The sixteenth chapter I cannot help considering as a very ingenious and specious, but very disgraceful
extenuation of the cruelties perpetrated by the Roman magistrates against the Christians. It is written in the
most contemptibly factious spirit of prejudice against the sufferers; it is unworthy of a philosopher and of
humanity. Let the narrative of Cyprian's death be examined. He had to relate the murder of an innocent man of
advanced age, and in a station deemed venerable by a considerable body of the provincials of Africa, put to
death because he refused to sacrifice to Jupiter.
Professional ethics is now acknowledged as a field of study in its own
right. Much of its recent development has resulted from rethinking
traditional medical ethics in the light of new moral problems arising
out of advances in medical science and technology. Applied
philosophers, ethicists and lawyers have devoted considerable energy
to exploring the dilemmas emerging from modern health care practices
and their effects on the practitioner-relationship.

Is the role of the government and media policy moot in the age of the Internet? While it
is surely true that the social organization of news media and their relations with diverse
publics are complicated by the Internet, it is highly debatable whether this has led to a
disintegration or dispersal of power, as some philosophers have argued.
