  • We come across an era of strong and even more unusual individual claims, while the solution to often conflicting demands becomes increasingly elusive and parochial. One of the most intriguing philosophical questions is how to link human responsibility to those consequences of action which no one can fully foresee but, nevertheless, which no one can afford to neglect. Many biotechnological challenges are of this nature.

  • This book offers the perspective that nursing theory is essentially connected with nursing practice, research, education, and development. Nursing theories, regardless of complexity or abstraction, reflect nursing and are used by nurses to frame their thinking, action, and being in the world. As guides for nursing endeavors, nursing theories are practical in nature and facilitate communication with those being nursed as well as with colleagues, students, and persons practicing in related health and illness services.

  • General Theme: Nowadays the market, and neo-liberalism in general, seems to be in disarray. With support waning for an unfettered market, various critics are seeking alternatives. In this book, the idea is that a new way of thinking about the economy may be productive, particularly one that does not rely on an unregulated market to secure economic order. In this context, the notion of a ―post-market society‖ is introduced to describe this shift in orientation.

  • 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.

  • President Henault, remarking on royal Surnames of Honour how difficult it often is to ascertain not only why, but even when, they were conferred, takes occasion in his sleek official way, to make a philosophical reflection. 'The Surname of Bien-aime (Well-beloved),' says he, 'which Louis XV. bears, will not leave posterity in the same doubt. This Prince, in the year 1744, while hastening from one end of his kingdom to the other, and suspending his conquests in Flanders that he might fly to the assistance of Alsace, was arrested at Metz by a malady which threatened to cut short his days.

  • Humans are visual creatures’, it is common to observe. Our reliance upon vision is apparent in the way we navigate and react to our surroundings. We fumble in the dark and instinctively turn to look at the sources of sounds. Visual information also occupies a privileged epistemic role, and our language frequently reflects a tight coupling of seeing with knowing. We evaluate views, have insights, and see what is at issue. Perhaps most telling is the greater fear many admit at the prospect of losing sight over any other sense.

  • Any book is like a reflection of its authors in a stream. It captures something of the story of who they are, but distorts the image at the same time. Such is the nature of water— such is the nature of reflection. We hope that the reader will find something of us here that is recognisable, in a human sense. There is much of us in the Tidal Model. However, expressing that, as with anything else, is often difficult. Words are great tools, but as we marvel at their beauty, we may fear what we might actually do with them. This is a storybook. It is...

  • Since the beginning of time, philosophers, visionaries, and great spiritual leaders have talked about the natural abundance of the universe. The difference between being aware of our natural abundance and owning a hefty portion of it is one of the main lessons we come to this earth to learn. We live in a three-dimensional world that reflects back to us the energy, words, feelings, and thoughts we put out. Unfortunately when we come to this planet we're not well versed in how to manifest our desires so it takes us time to learn it. But that in itself is a great...

  • The phenomenon of globalization has captured the popular imagination in the last decade or so. This is reflected in numerous books published on this topic from various academic disciplines and across philosophical discourses.

  • The average American consumes an estimated 50 tons of food in a lifetime. This staggering amount of food represents the sum of daily choices each of us makes regarding the type, quality, and quantity of foods. These critical choices in turn reflect a complex interplay of many factors, including family upbringing, religious or philosophical beliefs, as well as practical matters, such as the cost and availability of foods and beverages. Importantly, Americans are increasingly selecting food for health reasons.

  • The main concern of this book is scepticism about moral responsibility. By “moral responsibility” I understand that property of human agents by virtue of which they truly and objectively deserve moral praise or blame for some of their actions. We are naturally non-sceptical about this property. Even philosophical sceptics tend to praise or blame people spontaneously for some of their actions, though they may try to recoil from these spontaneous reactions after reminding themselves of their own reflectively acquired scepticism....

  • This collection of new and previously published essays reflects the major research and thought of one of today's preeminent philosophers of mind. The first seven essays are philosophical pieces that focus on mental representation and the foundations of intentionality; they are followed by four psychological essays on cognitive architecture. In his eloquent introduction, Fodor shows how the two areas are thematically united and epistemologically related, highlighting his interest in finding alternatives to holistic accounts of cognitive content.Jerry A.

  • In recent years there has been a growth of interest in the philosophy of T. H. Green, which, despite its once pre-eminent status, was in twentiethcentury philosophical thinking almost wholly neglected. It is the aim of this volume both to reflect and to stimulate that process of rehabilitation. Offering the largest collection of papers to date on Green, it represents a significant expansion in scholarship on this most important of British Idealists, substantially advancing our knowledge of his philosophy....

  • Spanning pivotal years in the historic democratisation of South Africa, the essays collected in Bounds of Democracy provide a trenchant reflection on Higher Education in transition. Arguably South Africa’s foremost philosopher of education, Wally Morrow grapples with very real concerns in higher education policy-making and practice, from stakeholder politics to institutional cultures; from curriculum transformation to an interrogation of the function of higher education institutions in modern societies.

  • To clarify, my notion of internal identity refers to an individual’s self-perception in relation to their experiences and the world. As it is reflective in nature, self-perception cannot be purely manifested internally. Without society and experience as a basis for reflexivity, there can be no internalized evaluation (Giddens 1991: 52-53). As such, history, experience and interaction provide the model by which individuals can give meaning to the physical, psychological, philosophical, and moral aspects of their identity.
