Living with Disfigurement in Early Medieval Europe (The New Middle Ages)

by Patricia Skinner

This book is open access under a CC-BY 4.0 license. This book examines social and medical responses to the disfigured face in early medieval Europe, arguing that the study of head and facial injuries can offer a new contribution to the history of early medieval medicine and culture, as well as exploring the language of violence and social interactions. Despite the prevalence of warfare and conflict in early medieval society, and a veritable industry of medieval historians studying it, there has in fact been very little attention paid to the subject of head wounds and facial damage in the course of war and/or punitive justice. The impact of acquired disfigurement —for the individual, and for her or his family and community—is barely registered, and only recently has there been any atte...

Moralities for Life: Thoughts and Behaviors Justified

by Dr. Hussam Atef Elkhatib

Moralities for Life are thoughts that roam through everyone's mind at one time or another. They are concerns everyone once has had and remained with them until they became a part of what one intrinsically is. People often contemplate and wonder about ethics, friendships, society, religion, politics, relations, romance, faith, emotions, reactions, interactions, sexuality and the like. This book encompasses those concerns and much more. It projects their sensitivities in a neutral sense that is inclusive, yet bears in mind humanity as a whole. Those moralities have transpired from observations and experiences around the world, and are presented through a logical comprehensive method. The purpose is to provide joy that emerges from a selfless vision and elation that springs from a const...

Sensing Absence: How to See What Isn't There in the Study of Science and Security: Chapter 1 from Absence in Science, Security and Policy

by Brian Rappert

Chapter 1 of this book is open access under a CC BY license.This is a chapter from Absence in Science, Security and Policy edited by Brian Rappert and Brian Balmer. This chapter is available open access under a CC BY license. Part reflection on the forthcoming chapters, part analysis of academic literature, and part programmatic agenda setting, this introduction chapter forwards the importance of questioning taken for granted assumptions in sensing what is absent as a concern. It undertakes this through initially examining what it means to characterize concern as absent or present in the first place. While absence and presence are often treated as binary opposites, it will be argued this distinction is difficult to sustain and unhelp for analysis. On the back of an appreciation of the int...

Dignity in the 21st Century: Middle East and West (SpringerBriefs in Philosophy)

by Doris Schroeder and Abol‐Hassan Bani-Sadr

This book is open access under a CC BY license.This book offers a unique and insightful analysis of Western and Middle Eastern concepts of dignity and illustrates them with examples of everyday life.Dignity in the 21st Century - Middle East and West is unique and insightful for a range of reasons.

Second, the ambition of the book is to use examples from everyday life and fiction to debate a range of dignity interpretations supplemented by philosophical and theological theories. Thus, the book is designed to be accessible to a general readership, which is further facilitated because it is publi...

A Philosophy of Israel Education: A Relational Approach

by Barry Chazan

This book develops a new philosophy of Israel education. “Person-centered” Israel education is concerned with developing in individual learners the ability to understand and make rational, emotional, and ethical decisions about Israel, and about the challenges Israel regularly faces, whether they be existential, spiritual, democratic, humanitarian, national, etc. Chazan begins by laying out the terms of the conversation then examines the six-pronged theory of “person-centered” Israel education to outline the aims, content, pedagogy, and educators needed to implement this program. Finally, the author meditates on what a transformation from ethnic to ethical education might look like in this context and others.This book is Open Access under a CC-BY license....

River Basin Development and Human Rights in Eastern Africa — A Policy Crossroads

by Claudia J. Carr

This book is open access under a CC BY-NC 2.5 license.This book offers a devastating look at deeply flawed development processes driven by international finance, African governments and the global consulting industry. It examines major river basin development underway in the semi-arid borderlands of Ethiopia, Kenya and South Sudan and its disastrous human rights consequences for a half-million indigenous people. The volume traces the historical origins of Gibe III megadam construction along the Omo River in Ethiopia—in turn, enabling irrigation for commercial-scale agricultural development and causing radical reduction of downstream Omo and (Kenya's) Lake Turkana waters. Presenting case studies of indigenous Dasanech and northernmost Turkana livelihood systems and Gibe III linked impacts...

One Hundred Years of Chemical Warfare: Research, Deployment, Consequences

by Bretislav Friedrich and Dieter Hoffmann

This book is open access under a CC BY-NC 2.5 license. On April 22, 1915, the German military released 150 tons of chlorine gas at Ypres, Belgium. Carried by a long-awaited wind, the chlorine cloud passed within a few minutes through the British and French trenches, leaving behind at least 1,000 dead and 4,000 injured. This chemical attack, which amounted to the first use of a weapon of mass destruction, marks a turning point in world history. The preparation as well as the execution of the gas attack was orchestrated by Fritz Haber, the director of the Kaiser Wilhelm Institute for Physical Chemistry and Electrochemistry in Berlin-Dahlem. During World War I, Haber transformed his research institute into a center for the development of chemical weapons (and of the means of protection agains...

Essence of Instruction (Upadesa Saram): The Pine Forest Revisited

by Ramana Maharshi and Miles Wright

The great Tamil poet Muruganar approached the South Indian sage, Bhagavan Sri Ramana Maharshi, and requested elucidation on the instruction which had been given by Lord Siva to the Rishis of Darukavanam (the Pine Forest).The Rishis had become hooked on action (karma) and every attainment threw up the desire for a further bigger, better attainment. They approached Siva and asked for help. Things have not changed much since then ... have they? The human condition continues to be enthralled with the shadows all the while oblivious to the all important source of the light.Sri Ramana Maharshi agreed and wrote this instruction in 30 verses. Later, the verses were translated into Telugu, Malayalam and, at the request of the great Sanskritist, Kavyakantha Ganapati Muni, they were also translated i...

Embracing Struggle: Turning Stumbling Blocks into Stepping Stones, a guide book for anyone struggling with life

by Andy Lacroix

Struggling with Life? Change the way you look at struggle and change your life

At some point in our lives, whether we like it or not, we can all be assured of one thing: inevitably, we will encounter struggle. Whether it is a struggle with emotions or a struggle to make ends meet or a struggle to manage time and stay organized, you have undoubtedly faced challenges that you have been forced to come to grips with, one way or another—and you will face these challenges again in the future, as well.

We all have our struggles, and many of us struggle with struggle itself. We push it away, try to deny its existence, or rage against it with venomous vehemence. We don't want to struggle, we want to lead peaceful lives that have a smooth flow and an even tempo, withou...

Skeptical Nihilism And the Feast of Creation (Emericus Durden Philosophy Series Book 3)

by Emericus Durden

“We are now creators, no longer critics and skeptics. Our commitment is to constructive creation, not to destructive criticism. We must forever be on guard never to fall back into our old skeptical habits, which would only damage and destroy the very world we are trying to create through our imaginations.”

In Skeptical Nihilism And the Feast of Creation, Emericus Durden caps off his trilogy on the philosophical method of skeptical nihilism. The other two works of the trilogy – Aiming Higher Than Mere Civilization and Beyond Words & Machines – are also available from Radical Academic Press.
