"Concept" in a historic and systematic perspective§In his paper "What Happened to the Sense of a Concept-Word?", Carlo Penco deals with the boundary between semantics and pragmatics and discusses some misunderstandings in the shift from the sense/reference distinction in Frege to the intension/extension distinction in semantics. Building on Fodor, Margolis and Laurence Jacob Beck defends in "Sense, Mentalese, and Ontology" the latter Fregean view on concepts by arguing that the mind-independence of Fregean senses renders them ontologically suspect in a way that mentalese symbols are not. Maria C. Amoretti explores the model of Davidson's triangulation and its specific role in concept acquisition.§In "A Critique of David Chalmers' and Frank Jackson's Account of Concepts" Ingo Brigandt suggests a more pragmatic approach to natural kind term meaning, arguing that the epistemic goal pursued by a term's use is an additional semantic property. Agustin Vicente, Fernando Martinez-Manrique discuss whether this variability in the languages generates a corresponding variability in the conceptual structure of the speakers of those languages in "The Influence of Language on Conceptualization: Three Views".§The connection between "Views of Concepts and of Philosophy of Mind-From Representationalism to Contextualism" is explored by Sofia Miguens, in respect of Edmund Husserl to Jocelyn Benoist. Richard Manning argues some "Changes in View: Concepts in Experience" with the main thesis that the content of perceptual experience must be conceived as concept-involving.§In "Concepts and Fat Plants" Marcello Frixione suggests that typicality effects are more plausibly the consequence of some "ecological constraints" acting on the mind. What does cognitive neuroscience contribute to our philosophical under-standing of concepts? That is the main question for Joseph B. McCaffrey in "Con-cepts in the Brain: Neuroscience, Embodiment, and Categorization".§The volume is completed by articles on the historical perspective on concept, starting with "Conceptual Distinctions and the Concept of Substance in Descartes" by Alan Nelson. "The Concept of Body in Hume's Treatise" is examined by Miren Boehm. Lewis Powell argues the "Conceiving without Concepts: Reid vs. The Way of Ideas". And Thomas Vinci asks: "Why the 'Concept' of Spaces is not a Concept for Kant", while Sonja Schierbaum reconstructs "Ockham on Concepts of Beings".§§Content and abstracts: www.protosociology.de

Exploring Political Ideas CQ Staff Directories,US

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

This title offers a groundbreaking, accessible introduction to the building-block concepts of democracy and comparative civics. Designed specifically to help high-school students build critical-thinking skills, "Exploring Political Ideas" presents a conceptual-comparative approach to the study of the political ideas that shaped world history and continue to affect today's political landscape. This unique approach gives students a solid grasp of the core concepts behind civics and democratic government, and shows how these concepts are applied in practice through comparisons over time, and across nations. This four-color text explores many intertwined concepts, including the uses of power and authority, the influence of political culture and political institutions, the relationships between rights and responsibilities, political participation and representation, the prerequisites of leadership and governance, and the challenges facing democratic governance in an age of rapid globalization. Each chapter illustrates the concepts through practical examples about political thinkers, leaders, ideas, institutions, and policies. Students explore historical and contemporary applications of political ideas from four perspectives: the decisions individuals make; the interests individuals articulate and pursue; the institutions they create and work within; and, the issues they to seek to resolve. "Exploring Political Ideas" is a terrific addition to public and college library collections, and ideal for high schools supporting curriculum in AP Government, civics, world history, geography, and AP social studies. No other resource unpacks the core concepts behind politics and government in this historical-comparative way that students can easily explore and digest.

This book s aim is to enrich and deepen our psychological understanding of biblical concepts and personalities. Such understanding is relevant for theology as well as for psychology and psychiatry. It may help theologians to contextualize their discipline by bringing it into contact with contemporary psychological and existential issues and tensions, both at an individual and a societal level. It also encourages psychologists and psychiatrists to develop and refine their vocabularies when they try to comprehend the existential meaning of what is transmitted to them by their clients.§The book highlights the concepts of prophecy, martyrdom, and messianism from Christian and Judaic perspectives. Each concept offers one biblical figure as representative: Jeremiah, Paul, and Jesus, respectively. The sections on these three subjects and personalities are sandwiched between a section on historical and conceptual issues, and a section devoted to select interdisciplinary issues.§Biblical images of pain, anguish, suffering, hope, resentment, and awe are part of our cultural background and shape the way we understand our lives and sufferings. Biblical perspectives on human existence, on the other hand, differ in some important respects from modernist conceptions that prevail in psychotherapy and psychiatry. The book investigates the possibility of a theological criticism on common frameworks of psychological and psychiatric understanding of the inner world of the client. It also offers new ways to understand the transformative power of religion.This book s aim is to enrich and deepen our psychological understanding of biblical concepts and personalities. The book contains masterful analysis of biblical personalities, such as Job, Jeremiah, Paul, and Jesus.

The field of communication has many components, and because its graduates have to be competent in communication skills in so many different contexts to function effectively in society, Communication: Principles of Tradition and Change is designed for courses that embrace the hybrid or blended perspective. To that end, it includes several dimensions needed by a strategic, successful communicator. A combination print text and companion website provide students with additional learning resources, chapter pretests, video explanations of key concepts, and more. A limited exposure to basic communication theory is provided. Students who understand why the strategies and skills are essential will be more able to successfully apply them. In addition to a chapter devoted to theory, theoretical insight is a running theme throughout the text. Fundamental principles of communication that cross all contexts are explored in chapters examining critical thinking, source credibility, and verbal and nonverbal communication. Examples and illustrations that provide a current perspective on communication in action are employed throughout the text. Students will reflect on the impact that communication has on daily activities, as the text supplies supporting materials ranging from popular culture to political discourse, from historical reflection to civic engagement, and from multicultural perspectives to family and professional applications. The development of a probing mind is reflected through internal chapter questions. Rather than simply being told what the concepts are, students are encouraged to ask questions that will assist in the development of strategic communication plans. The interpersonal communication context is analyzed. This unit includes a chapter that explores establishing, building, and maintaining interpersonal relationships, and two chapters concerned with planning and executing information gathering and employment interviews. The task- oriented small group context is investigated. The three chapters in this unit speak to the structure and development of groups; the use of influence and control in managing and directing groups; and a chapter on decision making strategies that provide a practical guide to making decisions of consequence. Public presentations are discussed, with a dual focus on informative and persuasive public speaking that includes sections on the practical planning, research, organization, and delivery of contemporary public presentations.
