Vitalizing Nature in the Enlightenment

release date: Jun 06, 2005
Vitalizing Nature in the Enlightenment
This far-reaching study redraws the intellectual map of the Enlightenment and boldly reassesses the legacy of that highly influential period for us today. Peter Hanns Reill argues that in the middle of the eighteenth century, a major shift occurred in the way Enlightenment thinkers conceived of nature that caused many of them to reject the prevailing doctrine of mechanism and turn to a vitalistic model to account for phenomena in natural history, the life sciences, and chemistry. As he traces the ramifications of this new way of thinking through time and across disciplines, Reill provocatively complicates our understanding of the way key Enlightenment thinkers viewed nature. His sophisticated analysis ultimately questions postmodern narratives that have assumed a monolithic Enlightenment—characterized by the dominance of instrumental reason—that has led to many of the disasters of modern life.

Growing Public: Volume 1, The Story
Growing Public examines the question of whether social policies that redistribute income impose constraints on economic growth. Taxes and transfers have been debated for centuries, but only now can we get a clear view of the whole evolution of social spending. Lindert argues that, contrary to the intuition of many economists and the ideology of many politicians, social spending has contributed to, rather than inhibited, economic growth.

Turning the Tide

release date: Oct 05, 2016
Turning the Tide
Excerpt from Turning the Tide: A New Policy for Canada''s Pacific Fisheries; Final Report The information in this report has been obtained in a variety of ways, the most important being the Commission''s public hearings. All those who wished to make a presentation on the matters within the terms of reference were invited to participate in hearings set up in coastal and interior centres in British Columbia and Yukon. The hearings took place against a background of anxiety about the state of the fisheries and uncertainty about government regulations. Soon after the Commission was struck last year the Department of Fisheries and Oceans announced a series of new restrictions on commercial and recreational fishing. The ensuing debate over these measures, and the way they were implemented, heightened concern about fisheries policy. At the same time, Canada''s important negotiations with the United States over a new international accord, relating mainly to interception of Pacific salmon, faltered and raised new apprehensions. And several industrial development projects have recently generated public controversies over their impacts on fish habitat. The concern generated by these issues and the generally depressed eco nomic condition of the industry have created deep dissatisfactions with government regulatory policy, and no doubt account for the high level of interest and participa tion in the hearings.

Playing from the Heart
An inspiring, moving story for budding musicians everywhere, the acclaimed creator of The Dot, Sky, Colour and Ish tells the story of a father and son, who connect through the powerful language of music. When a young boy begins to play on his family''s piano, revelling in the fun of plunking the keys, his father signs him up for lessons so that he can learn to play properly. With his father''s encouragement, Raj learns notes, then scales, then songs, and finally classical pieces that his father can recognize and be proud of. But the more Raj practises and the more skilled he becomes, the less he enjoys playing - until he grows up and stops playing altogether.

Reynolds brings his much-loved trademark style to this moving story about the healing power of creative expression. ; Perfect for any child who has ever played an instrument - or any parent who has urged his or her child to practise, practise, practise! ; Will resonate with young musicians, reminding them to be playful and to channel joy, not perfection.

Running on Empty
In his vivid descriptive style, prize-winning author Peter H. Michael recounts his classic 12,000-mile road trip taking in the expansive variety of people and places of the United States. Michael set out not to fathom the country "in search of America" as Steinbeck, Kerouac and Least Heat-Moon had but to listen and let America tell him whatever it might. Tell it did. Michael listens to Americans finally awakening to the income and wealth gaps which over the past generation have eroded the middle class and hit the poor hardest of all. In clear punchy style, he demolishes plutocrat arguments in an eminently readable expose on how the super-rich and largest corporations purchase economic inequality.

The Human Relationship with Nature

release date: Jan 01, 1999
The Human Relationship with Nature
Winner of Outstanding Book Award, 2000, Moral Development and Education, American Educational Research Association. Winner of the 2000 Book Award from the Moral Development & Education Group of the American Educational Research Association Urgent environmental problems call for vigorous research and theory on how humans develop a relationship with nature. In a series of original research projects, Peter Kahn answers this call. For the past eight years, Kahn has studied children, young adults, and parents in diverse geographical locations, ranging from an economically impoverished black community in Houston to a remote village in the Brazilian Amazon. In these studies Kahn seeks answers to the following questions: How do people value nature, and how do they reason morally about environmental degradation? Do children have a deep connection to the natural world that gets severed by modern society? Or do such connections emerge, if at all, later in life, with increased cognitive and moral maturity? How does culture affect environmental commitments and sensibilities? Are there universal features in the human relationship with nature? Kahn''s empirical and theoretical findings draw on current work in psychology, biology, environmental behavior, education, policy, and moral development. This scholarly yet accessible book will be of value to practitioners in the social science and environmental fields, as well as to informed generalists interested in environmental issues and children.

Politics and People in Ethology
Politics and People in Ethology: Personal Reflections on the Study of Animal Behavior is the memoir of a man who has spent his life among animals and academics: observing, studying, playing, and thinking about them. From a childhood in southern California to years spent at Yale, Cambridge and Duke Universities, Peter Klopfer has always made connections between his academic work with animals, his political convictions, and his wide-ranging intellectual interests. Rather than a straightforward history of a discipline that grew up along with his own academic career, Klopfer offers personal and candid insights into ethology (the study of animal behavior). He offers reminiscences about the "fathers" of the field - Konrad Lorenz, Niko Tinbergen, and others.

A Theology of James, Peter, and Jude

release date: Oct 10, 2014
A Theology of James, Peter, and Jude
This third release in Zondervan''s Biblical Theology of the New Testament series offers a comprehensive exploration of the theology of James, 1-2 Peter, and Jude, including introductory issues and major themes, but also shows how each book relates to the broad picture of New Testament theology.In this volume, Peter Davids offers a comprehensive study of the General or Catholic Epistles of James, 1-2 Peter, and Jude, which are often insufficiently covered in more general New Testament introductions, theologies, and surveys. Before discussing a theology of each of the four letters, Davids first deals with their common aspects-their shared background in the Greco-Roman world and a similar Christology, view of the source of sin, and eschatology-thus justifying their being treated together. In the chapters that follow, Davids embarks upon a theological reading of each letter informed by its social-rhetorical understanding-what they meant in the context of their original cultural settings-including: a survey of recent scholarship, a discussion of relevant introductory issues, a thematic commentary, a treatment of important theological themes, and a discussion of the place of the letter in the biblical canon and its contribution to New Testament theology.The Biblical Theology of the New Testament (BTNT) series provides upper college and seminary-level textbooks for students of New Testament theology, interpretation, and exegesis. Pastors and discerning theology readers alike will also benefit from this series. Written at the highest level of academic excellence by recognized experts in the field, the BTNT series not only offers a comprehensive exploration of the theology of every book of the New Testament, including introductory issues and major themes, but also shows how each book relates to the broad picture of New Testament theology.
