  • 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.

  • 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.,...

  • 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.

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 Cicero. 15 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.
