  • This little volume is a contribution to the comparative study of religions. It is an endeavor to present in a critically correct light some of the fundamental conceptions which are found in the native beliefs of the tribes of America. So little has heretofore been done in this field that it has yielded a very scanty harvest for purposes of general study. It has not yet even passed the stage where the distinction between myth and tradition has been recognized. Nearly all historians continue to write about some of the American hero-gods as if they had been chiefs of...

  • This paper examines the reasons for studying religion and the necessity for teacher, student, administrative or parental involvement in the process of learning about religious diversity. Chidester suggests that the study of religion and religious diversity can usefully be brought into conversation with recent research on new formations of citizenship.

  • Chapters V and VII of this book appeared, nearly in their present form, in the International Journal of Ethics. (July 1896, and July 1897.) The other chapters have not been previously published. In referring to Hegel’s works I have used the Collected Edition, the publication of which began in 1832. For purposes of quotation I have generally availed myself of Wallace’s translation of the Encyclopaedia, of Dyde’s translation of the Philosophy of Law, and of Spiers’ and Sanderson’s translation of the Philosophy of Religion. I am much indebted to Mr G. L.

  • The second aim of this thesis is to investigate whether Thai mutual fund performance can be explained by any of its characteristics. The study examines statistic and economic importance of fund characteristics to its performance. In the literature, evidence is sparse and mixed on developed markets, let alone that on emerging markets. Rather than focusing on one particular characteristic, this study draws on the evidence from five important characteristics in the literature, which offer theoretical and empirical support.

  • The book I have had the privilege of translating is, undoubtedly, one of the most remarkable studies of the social and psychological condition of the modern world which has appeared in Europe for many years, and its influence is sure to be lasting and far reaching. Tolstoi's genius is beyond dispute. The verdict of the civilized world has pronounced him as perhaps the greatest novelist of our generation. But the philosophical and religious works of his later years have met with a somewhat indifferent reception. They have been much talked about, simply because they were his work, but, as...

  • In The Varieties of Religious Experience the late Professor William James has said (p. 465): 'The religious phenomenon, studied as an inner fact, and apart from ecclesiastical or theological complications, has shown itself to consist everywhere, and at all its stages, in the consciousness which individuals have of an intercourse between themselves and higher powers with which they feel themselves to be related. This intercourse is realised at the time as being both active and mutual.

  • Nature has a rather splendid way of impressing us. There are few who have not been overwhelmed, time after time, by a sense of awe at the beauty of a glorious sunset, the sight of distant mountains shrouded in a soft blue haze of mist, or the brilliance of a starlit night. As a child, I found myself fascinated by the mysterious patterns of the constellations, the faint glow of the Milky Way, and the slow movements of the planets across the night sky. I devoured books on astronomy and even managed to build a small telescope to study the sky in greater detail. It allowed me...

  • Score gains in the Writing component of the Test have been the main focus of much of this research. Green (2004) presents the findings of four studies, all of which involved candidates whose average initial score was 5.0 and who were undertaking periods of English language instruction of not more than three months. Average score gains in these four studies were less than half a band. In these studies, the candidates who achieved a score of 5.0 or below on the first test tended to improve on the second, while those achieving a score of 7.0 tended to receive a...

  • In my professional life I have been asked many times the simple question: What is transpersonal psychology, counselling or psychotherapy? The answer is straightforward: it is a broad transcultural theory of human nature that posits that human beings are more than physical and psychological beings, with some form of spirituality being a reasonable bet. Oh, and by the way, it is also a discrete field of study that could be conceived as having had about 40 years of academic recognition.

  • More precisely, the question to be addressed is whether there are substitutes available at less cost than the true cost of Chemical A. Substitutes that meet this requirement will not always be available. For instance, "retro-fitting" existing production facilities in order to employ substitutes is, as a rule, likely to be quite expensive. The availability of financially viable alternative actions may be higher at the design stage of a process or product's development.

  • To fully capture the salient qualities of deeply engaging experiences, a broader palette of emotions is necessary. One kind of emotion is the feel- ing of understanding in an experience of learning. The term “feeling of understanding” highlights the vital quality of learning that is implicit, non-logical, and non-verbal. Examples include the feeling that an indi- vidual may have for the meaning of a difficult text passage, the symbolic significance of something in a work of art, the connection between an abstract idea and a concrete part of one’s world,...

  • Globally, clinker is typically produced in rotary kilns. Rotary kilns can be either wet process or dry process kilns.

  • In this paper we argue that religion and welfare state spending are substitute mecha- nisms that insure individuals against adverse life events. As a result, individuals who are religious will prefer lower levels of social insurance provision than will individuals who are secular, and countries that are more religious on average will have lower levels of welfare state spending.

  • “No authentic Messiah would inspire a religion that ended up calling upon the Jews to reject the manifest meaning of Sinai. It is really that simple.” --David Klinghoffer, Why the Jews Rejected Jesus, p. 215. As we can see from the above citation, Klinghoffer has thrown down the gauntlet against Christ and Christianity. To set the stage for his treatise, Klinghoffer tells us that his book is the fruit of a twenty-year interest.

  • St. Louis Marie Grignion de la Bacheleraie, who abandoned his family name for that of his birthplace, was born on January 31, 1673 in the little town of Montfortla-Canne, which is located in Brittany, France. He studied for the priesthood at St. Sulpice in Paris, having made the 200-mile journey there on foot. He was ordained a priest in 1700, at the age of 27. St. Louis De Montfort had wanted to become a missionary in Canada, but he was advised to remain in France. There he traveled around the western part of the country, from diocese to diocese...

  • Given these diverse viewpoints, understandably, the assessment of individual events was also different among investment banks. One bank considered the struggle about the early warning to Germany and Portugal in February, and the Council’s decision not to issue such a warning was considered a lost opportunity to enforce the Stability and Growth Pact as the existing procedure of fiscal co-ordination among European countries. 7 Conversely another bank argued “no warning, no problem,” since the two countries confirmed their commitment to their fiscal target.

  • The critical role of the NMMAPS in the development of the air quality standards attracted intense scrutiny from the scientific community and industry groups regarding the statistical models that are used and the methods that are employed for adjusting for potential confound- ing. Confounding occurs when an attribute that is associated with an outcome is also associated with the exposure of interest but is not a result of the exposure. In time series studies, we are primarily concerned with potential confounding by factors that vary on similar timescales as pollution or mortality.
