The Book of Lies: Misinformation for the simple minded

by Daniel Bryant

This book is a parody and is not meant to reflect my real worldview or beliefs about life. It is not meant to be taken seriously. However, I do hope it serves to make people think about the way we just take what we are taught for granted, as if it is always the truth, which, often, it is not. ...

Seductive Reasoning: Pluralism as the Problematic of Contemporary Literary Theory

by Ellen Rooney

Seductive Reasoning takes a provocative look at contemporary Anglo-American literary theory, calling into question the critical consensus on pluralism's nature and its status in literary studies. Drawing on the insights of Marxist and feminist critical theory and on the works of Althusser, Derrida, and Foucault, Rooney reads the pluralist’s invitation to join in a "dialogue" as a seductive gesture. Critics who respond find that they must seek to persuade all of their potential readers. Rooney examines pluralism as a form of logic in the work of E. D. Hirsch, as a form of ethics for Wayne Booth, as a rhetoric of persuasion in the books of Stanley Fish. For Paul de Man, Rooney argues, pluralism was a rhetoric of tropes just as it was, for Fredric Jameson, a form of politics....

Untrumpable: How Betting Against God Is A Fool's Bet Or What Pascal Should Have Said

by Kevin Moore

One of the most important questions upon which man will ever be forced to wager is this:given our uncertainty about the afterlife, so what? In this book, Moore argues that our uncertainty about the afterlife should matter to us greatly, if we are wise. And in order to complete the failed task that Blaise Pascal initiated, the provision of a sound and valid argument about how to wager on the afterlife under uncertainty, Moore argues for and defends the following new argument.

In brief:

1. Foolishness occurs under the following conditions:
(a) when one is aware of a severe threat to his or her most relevant interest,

(b) when one knows how to minimize the risks to such an interest against such a threat and

(c) when, in the...

The Prince (AmazonClassics Edition)

by Niccolò Machiavelli

Direct and coldly pragmatic, Niccolò Machiavelli’s The Prince is the preeminent guide to winning and maintaining power at the highest levels, where deception and manipulation are necessary tools, and political allies should never be mistaken for friends.Once a foreign policy official in his native Florence, Machiavelli was ousted by the Medici family. After surviving disgrace and torture at their hands, he penned The Prince to garner their favor. While this effort was ignored, the five-hundred-year-old work endures and is now considered one of the most influential—and controversial—political treatises of all time.Revised edition: Previously published as The Prince, this edition of The Prince (AmazonClassics Edition) includes editorial revisions....

Mysticism in Nepal and Tibet, The Himalayan Journals of M.G. Hawking: October 2018 Edition Anthology

by M.G. Hawking and H. Cantrell - M.Litt.

New Release There has long been a deep desire felt by scholars, both past and present, to recover the silent secrets of the ancient cultures of Tibet and Nepal, to trace the background of their prehistoric spiritual development as derived from ever earlier cultures, and then to discover whatever modern manifestations might still exist in the remote margins of that mysterious world. This desire has exerted a powerful pull on the imaginations of Westerners—historians, philologists, Tibetologists, philosophers, physicists, and psi researchers alike.Composed from the journals of explorer M.G. Hawking’s five years in remote areas of the Himalayas, this book transports the reader into regions of our planet that in all history only a handful of people have experienced, a journey that leads t...

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...

A Preview to Volume Four of America's Forgotten History: Grotius Rises

by Mark David Ledbetter

The chapters of America's story are marked by momentous events. In 1776, proud inheritors of the Glorious Revolution of 1689 declared both their independence and intention to form a government based on Enlightenment principles. Despite major missteps and contradictions, those living the story mostly stayed true to the project of minimalist government and individual rights until the end of the nineteenth century.After the Spanish-American War, though, with the acquisition of an explicit Pacific empire and the enthusiastic embrace of progressivism, America embarked on a new experiment for the new century, one which valued activist government and equality. If the first experiment lasted one hundred and twenty years, the second experiment, too, is now a hundred and twenty years old and totteri...

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

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...

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...

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

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...
