Evagrius Ponticus and Cognitive Science PICKWICK PUBN

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Description: This study puts the thought of Evagrius Ponticus, a fourth-century theologian, into dialogue with modern cognitive science in regard to the topic of evil, specifically moral evil. Evagrius, in his writings about prayer and the ascetic life, addressed the struggle with personal moral evil in terms of the eight ""thoughts"" or ""demons."" These ""thoughts"" were transmitted by John Cassian to the Western church, and later recast by Gregory the Great as the Seven Deadly Sins. Though present understandings of evil appear to differ greatly from those of Evagrius, his wisdom concerning the battle against evil may prove to be of great help even today. Using the work of Pierre Hadot to recover Evagrius's context, and the work of Paul Ricoeur to discuss how we construct descriptions and myths of evil, Evagrius is brought into dialogue with the cognitive sciences. Using current research, especially the work of Eugene d'Aquili and Andrew Newberg, this study reveals the contemporary relevance of Evagrius' approach to combating evil. In addition, the interdisciplinary study of patristics and cognitive science opens the pathway to a better understanding between Christian tradition and the modern sciences. Endorsements: ""Recent years have seen a resurgence in studies of Evagrius of Pontus bringing his work into a new relevance to today's world. This book by Dr. Tsakiridis examines the work of Evagrius and focuses on a perspective not well-covered in the literature-Evagrius' importance to science especially the cognitive sciences. The book is insightful and represents an important new contribution to studies of Evagrius' work and to the science and religion discussion as a whole. --Gayle E. Woloschak The Feinberg School, Northwestern University ""Few writers in the field of religion and science have the competence to interpret so many and varied texts in patristic mystical and moral theology, contemporary neuro - science, and the turn to spirituality in contemporary theology . . . He shows how both cognitive science and mystical theology can mutually enrich and inform each other in ways unimagined by today's popular neo-atheists and agnostics."" --Robert A. Cathey McCormick Theological Seminary ""In a thoroughly limpid style, George Tsakiridis sets before us an exceptionally interesting project: (1) he centers on sin, evil, and prayer in a way that is central to the religious life; (2) he engages the cutting edge domain of cognitive sciences; and (3) he invites us to take seriously both a much neglected fourth century religious thinker and the most contemporary work of scientists who focus on the mind and its activities."" --Philip Hefner Lutheran School of Theology at Chicago, Emeritus ""George Tsakiridis artfully compares and clarifies the concepts used by ancient and modern thinkers to describe meditation, ways to deal with good and evil, and mysticism, and adds neuroscientific studies of such experiences. Though the times were vastly different, enlightening human commonalities emerge."" --Carol Rausch Albright Lutheran School of Theology at Chicago About the Contributor(s): George Tsakiridis is currently a Lecturer in Religious Studies at Saint Xavier University, Chicago.

Encyclopedia of Geomorphology 2 vols Routledge

Inne 1

Geomorphology, the discipline which analyzes the history and nature of the earth's surface, deals with the landforms produced by erosion, weathering, deposition, transport and tectonic processes. In recent decades there have been major developments in the discipline and these are reflected in this major Encyclopedia, the first such reference work in the field to be published for thirty-five years.Encyclopedia of Geomorphology has been produced in association with the International Association of Geomorphologists (IAG) and has a truly global perspective. The entries have been written by an international editorial team of contributors, drawn from over thirty countries, who are all among the leading experts in the discipline.In two lavishly illustrated volumes, Encyclopedia contains nearly 700 alphabetically organized entries to provide a comprehensive guide both to specific landforms and to the major types of geomorphological processes that create them. The Encyclopedia also demonstrates the major developments that have taken place in recent years in our knowledge of tectonic and climatic changes and in the use of new techniques such as modelling, remote sensing and process measurement. Older concepts, however, are not forgotten and provide an historical perspective on the development of ideas. Both accessible and authoritative, Encyclopedia of Geomorphology is destined to become the definitive resource for students, researchers and applied practitioners in the field of geomorphology and the cognate disciplines of geography, earth science, sedimentology and environmental science.

Life Histories of North American Shore Birds, Vol. 2 Forgotten Books

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Excerpt from Life Histories of North American Shore Birds, Vol. 2: Order Limiclae This is the eighth in a series of bulletins of the United States National Museum on the life histories of North American birds. Previous numbers have been issued as follows: 107. Life Histories of North American Diving Birds, August 1, 1019. 113. Life Histories of North American Gulls and Terns, August 27,1921. 121. Life Histories of North American Petrels, Pelicans and their Allies, October 19, 1922. 126. Life Histories of North American Wild Fowl, May 25, 1923. 130. Life Histories of North American Wild Fowl, June 27, 1925. 135. Life Histories of North American Marsh Birds, March 11, 1927. 142. Life Histories of North American Shore Birds, December 31. 1927. The same general plan has been followed, as explained in previous bulletins, and the same sources of information have been utilized. The classification and nomenclature adopted by the American Ornithologists' Union, in its latest check list and its supplements, have been followed, mainly, with such few changes as, in the author's opinion, will be, or should be, made to bring the work up to date and in line with recent advances in the science. The main ranges are as accurately outlined as limited space will permit; the normal migrations are given in sufficient detail to indicate the usual movements of the species; no attempt has been made to give all the records, for economy in space, and no pretence at complete perfection is claimed. Many published records, often repeated, have been investigated and discarded; many apparently doubtful records have been verified; some published records, impossible to either verify or disprove, have been accepted if the evidence seemed to warrant it. The egg dates are the condensed results of a mass of records taken from the data in a large number of the best egg collections in the country, as well as from contributed field notes and from a few published sources. They indicate the dates on which eggs have been actually found in various parts of the country, showing the earliest and latest dates and the limits between which half the dates fall, the height of the season.

Lippincott Williams & Wilkins Atlas of Anatomy Lippincott Williams & Wilkins

Medycyna > English Division

Featuring more than 750 new, modern images, the Lippincott Williams & Wilkins Atlas of Anatomy is a vibrantly colored regional atlas of human anatomy offering an unprecedented combination of visual aesthetic appeal and anatomical accuracy. Many student-friendly features set this atlas apart from others on the market, including a unique art style featuring bright colors, color coding of anatomical elements, judicious use of labeling, and no extraneous text. Each plate is designed around a teaching/learning objective, providing immediate focus and resulting in easier and faster comprehension. This unique pedagogy, in combination with the atlas' beautiful art style, will make this new anatomy atlas the preferred choice of teachers and students alike. Packaged with the atlas is an online interactive atlas with all of the images, including fully searchable legends and labels and "zoom-and-compare" features. Also included are electronic flash cards that permit students to test their knowledge of newly learned concepts and structures. Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA), 08-JUN-09, Volume 301, Issue 17, Jason M. Organ, PhD, Center for Anatomical Science and Education, Department of Surgery, Saint Louis University School of Medicine, St. Louis, MO -- "As the number of anatomy curriculum hours continues to decrease at many major medical schools, Tank and Gest recognized the need for a new anatomical atlas emphasizing those structures most likely to be taught in the modern curricula. Provided with the unique opportunity to build an original atlas from the ground up, the authors of this fine volume did not disappoint. Drawing on their combined 60 years of classroom teaching experience, they designed an atlas with a strong approach to presenting anatomical information in a sequence not only logical from a teaching perspective but highly accessible to students as well. In fact, the authors' primary intent in their design was to create images that are faster and easier for students to use, because 'speed and ease of use have become critical needs in the era of compressed anatomical curricula'... "In each section, the authors take their audience on a journey from outside in, beginning with surface anatomy and ultimately progressing deeper through different dissection fields. This approach, coupled with consistent viewpoints for the images (ie, specimens are always placed in anatomical position, and perspectives are always directly anterior, posterior, medial, or lateral), makes the information easily accessible to the novice anatomy student and the not-so-novice instructor alike. "One of the most striking differences between this atlas and its contemporaries is the effective use of a ghosting technique in many of the illustrations, wherein a structure passing behind another structure is still visible through the structure in the foreground. The advantage of this technique is that 3-dimensional relationships of important structures-relationships often left to the imagination of the reader in other atlases-can be appreciated in 2 dimensions...Some of the most effective uses of this ghosting technique are found in the illustrations of the inguinal region...Students often struggle to understand which tissue layers of the anterior abdominal wall contribute to the superficial and deep inguinal rings...This ghosting technique not only allows Tank and Gest to show an external view of all 3 muscular layers and the transversalis fascia (with the contents of the inguinal canal appropriately illustrated) but also enables them to 'reverse' the image and present an internal view of the same structures and their 3-dimensional relationships. Indeed, the illustrations and labeling of the pectineal and lacunar ligaments are among the best I have seen, and I often found myself reaching for this atlas when students visited me with questions outside of the dissection laboratory. "In addition to the atlas, the authors and publisher offer a set of online supporting products...For example, all of the illustrations are available in an interactive, electronic format, enabling students to search images and compare features across images. Students can also use the interactive labeling exercises available online to test their individual knowledge of anatomy in preparation for examinations. "In short, this is a modern atlas constructed to complement a modern anatomy curriculum and designed to meet the needs of modern, computer-s

Why, today, would anyone undertake a plan to launch a spacecraft some 30 years in the future, and on a journey that would take some 40 years to complete? Paul Gilster investigates the science, and the spirit, of the NASA and JPL researchers who are actually at work on just such a project.§From the reviews:§"Gilster introduces the challenges of imagining and planning interstellar exploration by leading readers through the difficulties of reaching and exploring the nearest bright star, Alpha Centauri. Seeded by ideas and concepts of the late Robert Forward, the narrative is framed as a learning process undertaken simultaneously by writer and reader. Although Alpha Centauri is astronomically nearby, a postulated trip by robot spacecraft, followed by manned exploration, would take 50 to 1,000 years, depending on the type of spacecraft propulsion used. Various methods for interstellar travel are introduced and discussed, including solar sails that use the power of starlight, nuclear fusion, antimatter hybrid systems, and beamed laser propulsion. One challenge is to get there in a reasonable time so that funding support, public interest, and events on Earth will not divert attention from the mission. Another challenge is timing the mission relative to available technology, because with better technology it might be possible to send a later robot on the same mission in less time. The book has no figures, tables, or illustrations but does include 30 pages of notes and an adequate 14-page index. Though the concepts presented are often fanciful, this book will appeal to readers who wonder about the future of exploration beyond the solar system. Summing Up: Highly recommended. General readers; professionals." (W. E. Howard III, CHOICE, March 2005)

Of Time and the Timeless BERTRAMS

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

OF TIME AND THE TIMELESS uncovers the limitations of our temporal conditioning, which the author explores in the light of a timeless perception that is firmly rooted in the present. The resulting narrative is both intimate and universal, making it accessible to a wide selection of readers who are interested in exploring the essential relationship between inner freedom and the perceptive life. Exploring the significance of causality and change in our lives is never the exclusive province of science or philosophy. When we are done with all the theories, how do we perceive change both within ourselves and in the world around us? A history of spiritual currents in the 20th century and what these reveals about the metaphysics of change itself. This richly illustrated narrative explores the essential relationship between inner freedom and the perceptive life. It is both a spiritual history of the twentieth century, and a personal exploration of the nature of timeless transformation. It includes a study of the life and work of Annie Besant, an examination of the role of Theosophy in the spiritual history of the twentieth century, and the importance of J. Krishnamurti as a dramatic figure of emergent change. Adapted selections from the work: Human affairs can appear insignificant when set against the awesome depth of the night sky. Yet the cosmic drama we see unfolding in the birth and death of stars and the distant evolution of countless worlds is deeply rooted within us. In an age distinguished as much by fear as by the extraordinary advance of science and technology, a momentous conjunction of the irreconcilable has now settled on human affairs. We reach for the stars and turn our backs on those who can barely scratch a living. Haunted by dark forecasts of environmental catastrophe, few would doubt that the last waves of progressive optimism that followed in the wake of the Industrial Revolution are all but spent in the harsh realities of today's world. Rich or poor or just getting by, we are haunted by a largely subconscious background of fear and insecurity, which has so far proved resistant to the rational constraints we attempt to impose on them. If we personally feel that we have lost, never had, or only dreamt of what is truly sacred in life, then the awesome difficulties of our time serve well to remind us how hidebound we have become to a profane and materialistic concept of living. For those who retain the privilege of choice, life has become a sophisticated confusion of needs and wants. Their capacity to assimilate or indeed initiate change has led to many unforeseen and dangerous consequences for the planet as a whole. A burgeoning culture of holistic values may as yet have little significance for a world caught up in a confusion of conflicting viewpoints. Yet however life has shaped us, to live wholly and perceptively leads one to the threshold of a fertile mystery locked in consciousness itself, a place where concepts of self, time and causality can take on an entirely new meaning.

Churrasco Pickwick Publications

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Description: Just as a churrasco is a Brazilian barbecue of a variety of meats, Churrasco skewers together an ebullient and eclectic assortment of theological texts from around the world to honor and celebrate one of Brazil's most eclectic and creative theologians, Vítor Westhelle. Churrasco brings together different fields and disciplines, transgressing boundaries and allowing them to seep into each other. Though predominantly Lutheran, the authors hail from various denominations and contexts. Poised between in-depth doctrinal and practically reflective essays are poetically creative pieces. The contributions are exemplars of how to develop and foster language for God-talk and how to appropriate our God-talk in relationships with fellow human beings and with the environment. The topical range is wide and spans from the theology of the cross, to eschatology, postcolonialism, ecumenism, science and religion, the erotic, otherness, experience, literature, poetry, and the reformer Martin Luther. Unfettered by a common theme, the essays nevertheless connect and weave a tapestry; they raise key questions and they challenge theologians not only to rethink traditional concepts and contemporary views but also to reevaluate the task of theology itself. Endorsements: ""These essays embody a many-limbed and luscious theology. It vibrates, stretches, sings, provokes, and caresses. I recommend it to thinkers concerned with space--postcolonial or ecological; with theopoetics in literature, Scripture, or doctrine; with grace under torment or in love; and even with Luther."" --Catherine Keller, Drew University ""Westhelle's writing, wisdom, and theological influence reverberate around the globe. This collection is a fitting invitation to join in the spirit of accompaniment that marks Westhelle's work. I commend this feast of essays to anyone who wants . . . to enter the conversation on the ways God is working in the world."" --Robin Steinke, Lutheran Seminary at Gettysburg ""The nineteen contributions offered here . . . echo Westhelle's vigilance to give voice to the voiceless and fearlessly shake the indifference of empires and the idols by which such powers seek legitimization. These essays expand on Westhelle's paradoxical approach to faith and thus engage culture, science, and theology by means of a profound critique informed by Martin Luther's theology."" --Mark Mattes, Grand View University ""How do we celebrate a theologian who continually draws our gaze to the incarnate God who is constantly, unexpectedly revealed in the margins, fissures, and cracks?
