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.

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.

Can Two Rights Make a Wrong? IBM Press

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

"This is the book for people who never get past page two of a management book-it is as close as the genre comes to being a compulsive page turner. Its main thesis is built on at least three big ideas that are individually persuasive and cumulatively compelling. They naturally fit into an alignment tool that is applied to the range of day-to-day and exceptional challenges all enterprises face, including the Holy Grail of transformational change." -Donald Macrae, general counsel and chief knowledge officer, Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, England "Having been in the business of cultural transformation and alignment for many years, I've carefully looked for a thoughtful strategy and an intentional approach to bringing about healthy and thriving cultures. Can Two Rights Make a Wrong? is simply the best-it is the most thoughtful and practical work I've seen in this growing and critical area. This is a must buy!" -Dr. Ron Jenson, Future Achievement International, international author, speaker, and consulting and executive coach "Can Two Rights Make a Wrong? is a superb account of how to manage the 'soft side' of mergers and acquisitions, but it has great value for managing many other new business practices as well, such as Open Innovation. It provides a powerful, practical method to identify conflicts, develop alignment, and achieve effective coordination between two parties that would be tremendously helpful in a variety of collaborative contexts, such as alliances, research partnerships, or joint ventures. Moulton Reger and her colleagues at IBM should be congratulated for a thoughtful, insightful book." -Henry Chesbrough, professor at University of California Berkeley's Haas School of Business, author of Open Innovation "Numbers are neat and clean. Human beings are often messy and complex. If everyone in your organization knew what to do and when, how, where, and-most importantly-why to do it, how would your organizational culture be defined? The authors of Can Two Rights Make a Wrong? have introduced new ways to proactively address culture and, most importantly, tie it to bottom-line benefits." -James H. Amos, Jr., chairman emeritus, MBE/The UPS Store "This book is a must read for leaders hoping to change their organization's culture as well as those attempting to merge firms with uniquely different cultures. Moulton Reger's insights are grounded in theory and real-world experience. In this unique book, culture change is a complex concept broken down into bite-sized pieces and presented in a way that any leadership team can embrace at its own pace." -Merrill J. Oster, author of Vision Driven Leadership, founder Oster Communications, Inc. "Here at last is a business book that takes culture seriously and isn't intimidated by it. The method described can be used with practically any type of business problem in any industry, and the book does an excellent job of drawing on research and theory while keeping the focus practical. The three elements of Outcome Narratives, Right vs. Right, and Business Practices are significant ideas in their own right-each is a unique insight. All three ideas have been around in various guises for several years, but have not been as well crystallized or as focused on complex business problems as they are in this book. The authors' achievement is extraordinary and goes a long way toward making the juicy idea of culture something to be built on and worked with." -Peter Vaill, professor, Antioch University "The Achilles heel for any major organizational change is that organization's culture. In every change, consultants talk about culture, but few provide specific sequential steps designed to actually do anything about it. This book provides such steps, and provides them in ways that makes sense. 'Makes sense' is the key because the steps provided can be easily adapted to virtually any organization, large or small." -George Falldine, Air Force civil servant, Air Force Materiel Command "Sara Moulton Reger is one of the premier organizational design consultants in the country, and this book reflects her in-depth knowledge of and experience with the subject matter. This book is essential reading for those striving to achieve greater results from ongoing change initiatives. Can Two Rights Make a Wrong? contains a broad range of concepts, examples, and specific steps culled from Moulton Reger's direct experience. Such a complete presentation of strategic and tactical advice makes Can Two Rights Make a Wrong? a mandatory addition to every manager's bookshelf." -Steven Bragg, CPA, author of twenty-eight business books, CFO of Premier Data Services "This is a serious book that gives intelligent guidance to anyone who leads an organization and takes creating and managing culture seriously. The section on Outcome Narratives is the best 'how to' on casting a unifying vision that I have seen. If you're a leader and take your role in creating and managing corporate culture seriously, then you should read this book." -Regi Campbell, principal, Seedsower Investments, author of About my Father's Business "I don't read most 'culture change' books-waste of time. This book is different. Can Two Rights Make a Wrong? combines both soft and hard approaches, with a continuous focus on how-to and results. Buy it. But, more importantly, read it." -Jack Grayson, founder and chairman, American Productivity and Quality Center (APQC) "We used Right vs. Right to help integrate an important acquisition-one that brought many differences we needed to carefully leverage to achieve IBM's business objectives. I found it to be a powerful technique for quickly reconciling strategic views of the business model and different operating preferences. Now, a few months later, we have the business results-and employee satisfaction-to prove Right vs. Right works." -Jim Corgel, general manager, Small and Medium Business Services, IBM "Leaders wouldn't think about doing a major project without a plan and a project manager, but how many consider the cultural implications? This book fills a key void because it clarifies the topic of culture so that it is easier to understand, and includes examples for applying the framework to many types of situations, including business-to-business alliances and crossgeography teams." -Cindy Berger, vice president, American Express "There is no question that the biggest hurdle to achieving a successful merger is culture. Market opportunities may be staggering and synergies may seem perfect, but, without a cultural match, odds are the merged company will struggle. Can Two Rights Make a Wrong? can help you avoid the problems. Even if you are not contemplating a merger, Moulton Reger's deep insight provides an excellent management primer and interesting historical perspective. A worthwhile read." -John R. Patrick, author of Net Attitude, president of Attitude LLC "This is an excellent book that provides a pragmatic approach to identifying and alleviating cultural issues created when two groups of people must work together. Effectively blending business cultures is a key requirement for successful outsourcing, and most companies lack the tools necessary to do this. Companies looking to reduce outsourcing risk should follow IBM's Tangible Culture approach." -Lance Travis, vice president, Outsourcing Strategies, AMR Research "This book will help leaders and cultural-change practitioners take a practical, well-architected approach to creating the culture they need to support their strategies. Thanks, IBM, for sharing what you have learned from your own transformation." -Valerie Norton, vice president, Talent Management and Organizational Effectiveness, Merck & Co., Inc. "Based on IBM's own experience with organizational transformation and mergers, this book belongs on the reading list of any executive contemplating major changes to their business." - Peter Richerson, professor, University of California Davis - "Finally, a book that goes beyond just declaring 'it's the culture change' and gets to a real recount of why and how to move on that need. This is a practical approach for senior leaders in large corporations and government to address the most pressing issues in modern business life!" -Kenneth I. Percell, executive director, Warner Robins Air Logistic Center "I like the way the authors move the idea of organization culture from intangible (values) to tangible and practical. They offer that culture can be viewed and changed by examining and discussing what people do. Using the techniques described in Can Two Rights Make a Wrong? will demystify culture clash." -Lynda Aiman-Smith, Ph.D., North Carolina State University "A must read for leaders charged with planning and executing major change initiatives involving a single organization or multiple organizations. The book is original, thoughtful, thorough, and pragmatic. The elements of Can Two Rights Make a Wrong? and their interrelationships that work to drive successful change are particularly beneficial. The authors demonstrate a hands-on grasp of this important subject and the related literature. The material is presented in a concise, easy-to-understand format, with lots of tables, charts, and illustrations to help guide the reader." -Stephen W. Brown, Edward M. Carson chair in services marketing, professor and executive director, Center for Services Leadership, W. P. Carey School of Business, Arizona State University "Many have observed that mergers and acquisitions will fail to achieve their goals without proper attention to human and cultural factors, but few have shown us the way to manage these factors in any meaningful way. This book takes up that challenge and delivers a real solution by identifying business practices as the crucial element of 'culture' that can make or break a merger or acquisition, and by providing a hands-on methodology for managing and aligning differences across cultures." -Marietta Baba, dean of the College of Social Science, professor of Anthropology, Michigan State University "Sara Moulton Reger's application of Business Practices, Right-vs. Right, and Outcome Narratives to business transformation spoke directly to my own business experience. I found the book's comprehensive approach very appealing. It brought together the story of a historic merger; a review of traditional approaches to culture transformation in business organizations; the powerful new techniques of Outcome Narratives, Right vs. Right, and Business Practices Alignment; and useful examples of the way to apply these techniques." -Dwight E. Collins, Ph.D., adjunct professor, Presidio School of Management, sustainable business and supply chain optimization consultant, president, Collins Family Foundation "We know unsuccessful mergers and acquisitions are often the result of underestimating the people and the cultural issues. Derived from experience, here is practical help in improving your chances of being one of the success stories." -David Hope, human resources director, Norwich Union Insurance "This is state-of the-art. This practical approach is extremely useful for anyone involved in integrating two large organizations, especially professional organizations. I found the book Can Two Rights Make a Wrong? fascinating-excellently describing the preparation and process that is required in integrating culturally different organizations." -Fred WI Lachotzki, professor of business policy, Nyenrode University, coauthor of Beyond Control: Managing Strategic Alignment through Corporate Dialogue Nowadays, nearly every business leader recognizes the crucial importance of culture. But, in many organizations, attempts to handle culture issues remain "squishy," unfocused, and unlikely to bring any value or results. Now, IBM's leading experts reveal the way to make culture tangible to everyone involved-and how to effectively deal with a variety of culture challenges. Can Two Rights Make a Wrong? leverages the lessons learned during IBM's $3.5 billion acquisition of PricewaterhouseCoopers Consulting: insight that IBM has crystallized into a powerful methodology for transforming business culture. The authors introduce "Business Practices," an actionable surrogate for "culture" that business people can identify with, gauge, and act upon. Then, one step at a time, you'll learn how to apply IBM's practical culture transformation techniques in your unique environment. You'll discover common patterns that lead to culture clashes so you can resolve or, better yet, prevent them. You'll learn to clarify your expectations so people really "get" it-and do it. You'll gain the way to measure culture change progress in terms everyone can understand and buy into. Whether you're involved with M&As, joint ventures, major transformation, internal restructuring, or any other initiative where culture is important, this book can help you take culture from a worrisome risk to a competitive advantage. *Business Practices: the unseen hand that propels action Uncover what makes your organization unique *Right vs. Right: What to do when good options conflict Understand and manage the source of culture clash *Outcome Narratives: Get to the right place, the right way Clarify your desired future, clear the obstacles, measure progress, and deliver results Successful culture change requires the same discipline you bring to the rest of your business. It demands a strong methodology that helps you clarify your goals and expectations, identify and overcome obstacles, measure progress...and get results. This book delivers that methodology. IBM's powerful, proprietary Tangible Culture approach will help you make culture visible and measurable- so you can replace "feel good" culture work with focused, actionable plans for change. Use IBM's techniques to surface, understand, and reconcile differences among groups that must work together, so you can launch alliances more more value from acquisitions...enhance cross-silo and global operations...choose the right strategies...and make real transformation happen. Whatever your goals, culture is central to your success. With this book, you can finally address culture-systemically, proactively, and effectively.

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

Pink Floyd - Division Bell, The

Książki & Multimedia > Muzyka

Opis - 28 marca 1994 roku grupa Pink Floyd, jedna z największych legend w historii muzyki rockowej, wydała ostatnią, jak się potem miało okazać, studyjną płytę - "The Division Bell". W 2014 roku minęła 20. rocznica premiery tego wspaniałego albumu. Z tej okazji przygotowano piękny prezent dla fanów w postaci reedycji płyty. Większość tekstów na płytę wraz z Davidem Gimourem napisała jego małżonka, Polly Samson. Krążek przyniósł parę cudownych piosenek, jak "Take It Back", "What Do You Want From Me", czy "High Hopes". Na całym świecie rozszedł się w ponad 12 mln egzemplarzy. Album "The Division Bell" w 10 krajach dotarł do pierwszego miejsca notowań, w tym w Wielkiej Brytanii i USA (tu pozostał na szczycie przez cztery tygodnie). Spektakularne światowe tournée promujące płytę zakończyło się w październiku 1994 roku w Anglii i było ostatnim w historii Pink Floyd. Jego pokłosiem było niezwykle efektowne koncertowe wydawnictwo "Pulse". Później zespół wystąpił tylko raz, za to z Rogerem Watersem, w 2005 roku podczas koncertu "Live 8" w Londynie, w Hyde Parku.

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.
