About this Item: 2017. Hardcover. Condition: New. 292 ABOUT THE BOOK:- "Religion and Gurus in traditional and Modern India" is a consolidation of a series of publications and essays in the area of sociologoical apparaisal of religion, syncretism and modern gurus and godmen in India over period of last few decades. It is unfortunate that under the influence of western and particularly established branch of American sociology, with its exclusive focus on the structural- functional approach for a long time historical and analytical studies have almost withered away from Indian sociology. Ours is a humble attempt in this direction to revive this earlier thrust of enquiry in sociological appraisals. In this book we have attempted to look at the present and historical context. With the rise of communal forces in the post 1980s, it was difficult to ignore the socioeconomic and political situation. The present volume consists of eight essays. The first four essays deal with the role of Hinduism in modern Indian society and syncretism in the Indian context. The other two articles are on gurus in India. The other four essays are focused on the four leading godmen of western India. These four essays are based on our findings based on f ield inves t igat ion conducted mostly during the years and in 2010. Our study on Rajneesh was done much earlier during the late 1980s. ABOUT THE AUTHOR:- Dr. Uday Mehta is a sociologist with broad interdisciplinary background. He received his SSA and Ph.D from Tata Institute of Social Sciences and Mumbai University . He h a s contributed to the field of sociology through many of his books such as Agrarian Strategies in India, State Secularism and Religion: Western and Indian Experience (Co-editer: Asgar Ali Engineer), and Modern Godmen in India.

About this Item: Akansha Publishing House, New Delhi, India, 2009. Hardcover. Condition: New. Dust Jacket Condition: New. Early Meitei History : Religion, Society and the Manipur Puyas is a concerted attempt towards presenting an objective reconstruction of the Religion and society in early Meitei history. Studies undertaken so far have been inadequate in terms of handling the mass of manuscripts called Puyas which are the only major written source for the study. Notwithstanding the existence of reliable historical Material alongside mythical narrative, the problem has been the treatment of the Puyas by majority of the scholars as authentic historical records per se. This Book offers a fresh approach to the treatment of the subject. It integrates critical Study of the Puyas, experiences of the living Tradition archaeological evidence and secondary data sources to comprehend the subject from a wider perspective. The study focuses on ancestor worship; a critical study of which is crucial for understanding other aspects of Manipur history. The traditional religion passed through a long process of evolution and survived even after Vaisnavism was declared the State religion of Manipur in the eighteenth century A.D. The book will serve its purpose if it contributes towards a meaningful interpretation of the history of the Meiteis. The work is also aimed at stimulating discourses on issues such as identity, Ethnicity and nationality affecting contemporary Manipur society.

About this Item: Mittal Publications, New Delhi, 2004. N.A. Condition: New. xiv + 302pp Despite the various discursive and rhetorical appropriation of the term, the concept of sustainable development (SD) and its goals remain contested and elusive. However, in modern times the application of the term has broadened considerably, not only to include the original dominant discourse of the 1987 WCED Brundtland Report of environmental politics and policy, but a strong commitment to a number of normative principles of good governance such as, liberal democracy, political participation, institutional development, collaboration and coordination, political and administrative transparency, and a responsive bureaucratic system, based on the norms of morality, integrity and anti-corruption strategies. Many of the nations, which have adopted the concept of SMART (simple, moral, accountable, responsive and transparent ) governance in recent times have attempted to meet the challenges of changing conceptualization and goals of SD through varied interpretation of this acronym. The present book which is the outcome of the two panels organized by the International Political Science Association?s (IPSA) Research Committee 4 on Public Bureaucracies in Developing Societies at its 18th Congress in Quebec (Canada) in 2000 and another panel at its mid-term Conference organized at Abuja in 2001, attempts to discuss in detail the various issues involved in developing such strategies in the perspective of the experiences of different countries. The various essays included and the book on the whole demonstrates that although different approaches like institutional development, capacity building, strengthening policy-processes mechanisms etc. have been advocated and used by a number of national and international organizations and think tanks all over the world, it is only recently that emphasis on ethical and moral dimensions, achieving transparency and accountability along with integrity have emerged as crucial elements of good governance, which have posed various challenges to modern states in the new millennium. It is now obvious that the phenomenon of corruption cannot be fought and ethical conduct on the part of bureaucracy cannot be ensured simply by reforming internal rules and structures. Innovative activities involving governmental institutions, private corporate bodies and non-governmental organizations have become critical for any integrated anti-corruption programs to achieve sustainable development. It is in this perspective that the present compendium attempts to address the concerns and problems that modern governments face in this millennium, and discuss what steps and strategies could possibly be taken to meet these challenges. Hopefully this compendium will be found useful by policymakers, political leadership, students of public administration and management specialists, and a valuable addition to the existing sparse literature in the sub-field of Good Governance from the perspective of the basic ingredient of public service ethics and integrity as a means to achieve a corruption free sustainable development.

About this Item: University opf Toronto Press, 2012. Hardcover. Condition: Near Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Near Fine. 1st Edition. "What is the role of providence in Paradise Lost? In Looking into Providences, Raymond B. Waddington provides the first examination of this engaging subject. He explores the variety of implicit organizational structures or 'designs' that govern Paradise Lost, and looks in-depth at the 'trials,' or testing situations, which require interpretation, choice, and action from its characters.Waddington situates the poem within the context of providentialism's centrality to seventeenth-century thought and life, arguing that Milton's own conception of providence was deeply influenced by the theology of Jacob Arminius. Using Milton's Arminian conception of free will, he then looks at the providential trials experienced by angels and humans. Finally, the work explores the ways in which providentialism infiltrates various kinds of discourse, ranging from military to medical, and from political to philosophical. " (Publisher).

About this Item: Orient BlackSwan Pvt. Ltd, 2015. Hardcover. Condition: New. First edition. Throughout the world, and especially in South Asia, myriad constituencies are grappling with rethinking and renegotiating the contours of society, particularly women?s place in the larger social order. This is raising profound questions regarding women?s social roles and rights eliciting disparate, conflicting images concerning what constitutes women?s rights, who is to define these rights, where responsibility lies for ensuring rights, and the role states should play in articulating and clarifying what is acceptable and unacceptable within local contexts. This book analyzes various efforts in Pakistan to conduct ijtihad?interpretation?as different groups reinterpret women?s rights, seeking to reconcile the exigencies of modernity, local and global pressures to ensure women?s rights with prevailing Islamic and cultural views, and feminist analyses of power and control of women and their rights. It begins with an overview of the Government of Pakistan?s construction of an understanding of what constitutes women?s rights, elaborates on traditional views and contrasts these with contemporary popular opinion. It then focuses on three very different groups? perceptions of women?s rights: progressive women?s organizations as represented by the Aurat Foundation and Shirkat Gah; orthodox Islamist views as represented by the Jama?at-i-Islami, the MMA government in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (2002-2008), and al-Huda; and the Swat Taliban. Author Anita Weiss argues that the resultant ?culture wars? are visibly ripping the country apart as groups talk past one another, each confident that it is the proprietor of culture and interpreter of religion, while others are misinterpreting both. This book will be an essential resource to scholars interested in the discourse on Islam and women?s rights, gender studies and development studies as well as to how different groups come to understand women`s rights while grappling with the forces of modernity.

Polyphony in Women in Love. III. Conclusion and extension: 1. Meaning of discourse. 2. D.H. Lawrence as an artist. "In this book, the author traces the recent developments in stylistics and their relevance in the context of a study of D.H. Lawrence's major novels. The author has carefully chosen the stylistic tools for operating them on these texts for exploring the process of meaning. A text is a repertoire of resources of language such as vocabulary, syntax, phonology, metaphorical mode, cohesion/coherence and modes of discourse. That is why he has studied the text not merely as a product embodying the resources of language as formal facts. He has, however, analysed the language as a social construct with a variable context-dependent significance to show that the features of language constitute acts of communication. His shift of emphasis has, therefore, been from the notion of the text as product to that of process. 230 pp. Seller Inventory # 43604

About this Item: Wipf Stock Publishers, United States, 2016. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. In these times of increasingly contentious politics and uncivil discourse in the United States, the ongoing encounter of adherents of the Abrahamic faiths in the American heartland offers a model of positive interfaith relations. Edited by a Muslim, a Jew, and a Christian, this volume describes the three goals of the Central Ohio Abrahamic encounter: Enhancing mutual understanding and relationships, disseminating accurate information about the three major Abrahamic traditions (Judaism, Christianity, and Islam), and contributing to the general betterment of society. Here is a local story that can inform--even inspire--other communities across the country and around the globe. Topics include beliefs, scripture and interpretation, historical illustrations and legacies, contemporary challenges and possibilities, and group dynamics, especially majority-minority relationships among American Christians, Jews, and Muslims. This volume will appeal to the growing audience for interfaith resources. The inclusion of several essays by noted religious scholars and leaders, chosen for their significance to the Central Ohio Abrahamic encounter, sets this volume apart from other publications on local initiatives. It is well suited for individual or group study in churches, synagogues, mosques, and interfaith organizations, and can be assigned for undergraduate and graduate/seminary courses on Abrahamic relations or interfaith relations generally. This ambitious collection celebrates and analyzes the dialogue of civilizations that is taking place right in the heart of America. Dr. Jalil, Dr. Hosansky, and Dr. Numrich are true leaders in interfaith bridge-building and, along with their contributors, shed light through this collection on how others--both here in America and throughout the world--can begin the vital work of healing a fractured world. --Ambassador Akbar Ahmed, Ibn Khaldun Chair of Islamic Studies, American University, Washington, DC Three prominent interfaith leaders in Columbus, Ohio, Dr. Mazhar Jalil, a Muslim, Dr. Norman Hosansky, a Jew and Dr. Paul Numrich, a Christian commenced a still ongoing public dialogue about their respective faiths. These admirable men have inspired hundreds of Jews, Muslims and Christians in Greater Columbus to build ties of communication and cooperation, and have successfully role modeled how it can be done in metropolitan areas across America. --Marc Schneier, Rabbi; President, Foundation for Ethnic Understanding Mazhar Jalil received his PhD in biology from the University of Waterloo, Canada, and serves as a trustee of Islamic Foundation of Central Ohio, Columbus. Norman Hosansky received his PhD in organic chemistry from Rutgers University and serves as a lay leader of Congregation Tifereth Israel, Columbus. Paul D.

About this Item: McGill-Queen s University Press, Canada, 2011. Paperback. Condition: New. New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Christina Clark-Kazak, a former international aid worker, uses extensive interviews done in Kampala and Kyaka II refugee settlement, Uganda, to present the narratives of ten young people living as refugees. Their accounts reveal both political awareness and individual agency in everyday and extraordinary circumstances. The author shows how refugee youth seek to influence decision-making processes in families, communities, and at policy levels through formal and informal mechanisms, as well as through non-political channels such as education and music. She juxtaposes their interpretations of the situations with the discourse and bureaucracy of international aid organizations, showing the sometimes radical differences between these perspectives. Clark-Kazak not only provides insight into the politics of labelling but offers recommendations for future research, policy, and programs for refugee young people. A remarkable and compelling look at the lives of young refugees, Recounting Migration challenges stereotypes by giving these migrants a long-overdue opportunity to speak for themselves.

About this Item: D.K. Printworld (P) Ltd, 2010. Hardcover. Condition: New. First edition. The volume mainly deals with the Sufi thought of one of the most revered and influential Sufis, Shaikh A bdu l Qadir Jilani (eleventh-twelfth century), particularly its impact on the culture and tradition of the Indian subcontinent. It presents a historical perspective on the religious-political theorists of the time and pattern of administration then. In an interesting study, it deals with the life and works of the saint and emergence of Sufi thought and organization of Sufi silsilas. The focus is on the original utterances, sermons and discourses of the scholar-preacher and interpretation of the most recurring themes in Jilani s vocabulary in a simple manner. The themes relate to unity of the Divine Being, enforcement of the lawful, love of humanity, polytheism, the spiritual struggle in man and different ahwal (states) and maqamat (stations) of the Sufi thought. It observes that Jilani has not deviated from the fundamental teachings of the Qur an and the Sunnah. It discusses the impact of his teachings in terms of the emergence of various Qadiriyya centres in the subcontinent and flourishing of his thought after his time. \nThe volume will be useful to scholars of Islamic studies and general readers interested in understanding the evolution of Islamic thought in the Indian subcontinent.

About this Item: CreateSpace Independent Publishing Platform. Paperback. Condition: New. This item is printed on demand. 244 pages. Dimensions: 8.0in. x 5.2in. x 0.6in.The Necronomicon of Mesopotamia. . . Sumerians. . . Star-Gates of Babylon. . . The Anunnaki. . . Ancient Alien Gods. . . The Mardukite Babylonian Religion. . . The world has waited long enough! Here it is! An authentic Necronomicon for the masses! Released in commemoration of the 5th Anniversary of the Necronomicon Anunnaki Bible, the Mardukite Truth Seeker Press proudly presents the new abridged compact travel edition of Joshua Frees Necronomicon excerpting the primary source book of the Mardukite Chamberlains Research Organization uncovered during their first active year of development in 2009! Ever since the visions of H. P. Lovecraft began to haunt the world, people from all walks of life have celebrated various interpretations of these musings. We are shown a world shroud in darkness that has been materialized by primordial malignant gods who fought one another for control of the Universe and for the worship of the humans who brought to them sacrifices and abominable litanies. But as many have already assumed, this Necronomicon tradition was indeed the product of Lovecrafts imagination, and it only much later became known as the Cthulhu-mythos, a haven for horror-fantasy genre authors. For nearly a century thereafer, the Necronomicon remained a fictional product of dark fantasy until the famous Simon folio was presented to the world in 1977. While many readers superimposed the Lovecraftian lore into their interpretation verbatim, this new document did not present rituals by which the malignant Ancient Ones would be unleashed into this world - in fact, it suggested the exact opposite: beneath the foundation of the esoteric mysteries exists a secret and sacred tradition to fight against this very act! As an unfortunate move by its contemporary readership, the Simonomicon came under attack as being no more authentic than Lovecrafts own stories. More serious practitioners came to a more educated conclusion: the magickal notebook (or grimoire) was incomplete at best, alluding not to the Enlilite traditions common to the Sumerians, but rather to a Mardukite tradition that was raised by the Babylonians in honor of Marduk, firstborn son of Enki, who ruled men and gods from the Tower of Babel. Since 2008, the range of the Mardukite work included lengthy discourses with other related published researchers, unceasing hours in abandoned corners of old libraries and museums, participation in sessions with other practicing occultists and even a visit to the tablet collections at the University of Pennsylvania and Chicago among others. The culminating results were nothing like anyone would have expected: an authentic and verifiable version of the Necronomicon salvaged from the shifting desert sands of time in the Middle East and Egypt, unparalleled by anything already available to True Seekers. It appeared to be the most complete collection of ancient writings on the planet that formed the very foundation of all the human traditions and beliefs that would emerge thereafter. This present edition of the Necronomicon edited by Joshua Free, is not Lovecraftian or Simonian (while it could serve to offer validity to materials from both sources for those who seek it), neither is it dangerous or a hoax (though those who fear the revelation of these truths for the world will think it the former and label it the later). This edition of the Necronomicon is the single most ancient and pure unaltered lore concerning the hottest topics of our time and all times, including divinity, creation, human origins, aliens, religion, pantheistic magickal traditions, alternate dimensions, portals and the afterlife. In this new millennium of uncertainties, it is most likely that the uncovering of the past will reveal our future. This item ships from La Vergne,TN. Paperback. Seller Inventory # 9781499359084

About this Item: Duke University Press 1998 Paperback, 1998. Condition: Very Good. Gendered Agents, edited by Silvestra Mariniello andPaul A. Bov , presents essays by influential feminist theorists who challenge traditional Western epistemology and suggest new directions for feminism. By examining both literary and historical discourses, such critics as Gayatri Spivak, Hortense Spillers, and Lauren Berlant assess questions of sexuality, ethics, race, psychoanalysis, subjectivity, and identity. Gathered from various issues of the journal boundary 2, the essays in Gendered Agentsseek to transform the model of Western academic knowledge by restructuring its priorities and values. In the introduction, Mariniello urges feminists to begin anew but take as their starting place the achievements of feminism and feminist theory: an understanding of language that considers the implications of silence, the motivation to decompartmentalize experience, and the acknowledgement that everything is political.Challenging both a canonical organization of knowledge and the persistently self-referential 'ghettoization' of feminism, contributors subsequently tackle subjects as diverse as pre-Marxist France, the American fetus, black intellectuals, queer nationality, and the art of literary interpretation. Contributors. Lauren Berlant, Karen Brennan, Margaret Cohen, Nancy Fraser, Elizabeth Freeman, Carol Jacobs, Silvestra Mariniello, Larysa Mykyta, Laura Rice, Ivy Schweitzer, Doris Sommer, Hortense J. Spillers, Gayatri Chakravorty Spivak, Judith Wilt 440 pages. Seller Inventory # 763366

About this Item: Createspace Independent Publishing Platform, United States, 2015. Paperback. Condition: New. Bilingual, Translation. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. This is a genuine literal translation of Abelard s and Heloise s famous Correspondence. The English version is confronted with the first printed Latin text of 1615. Both texts are divided in 4542 items, numbered and juxtaposed for ease of reading, understanding and criticizing. This work provides proofs that the common reception of the life of those so-called lovers is incorrect and unscrupulous. With such a tool in the hands, everybody may interfere in the interpretation of one or another sentence or word. He has the capacity to indicate what part of the discourse is disputable. This kind of progressive translation is not only intended for students, but also for honest amateurs of truth in historical research. Such a Correspondence is not a love romance. It is a special way of exposing human tragedy and also and above all the description by the victims themselves of the strategy of redemption they adopt facing an unnamable infamy. In the first letter, indisputably written to his friend Heloise, Abelard summarizes his misfortunes: they are the consequences from Heloise s unfortunate condition. The following five letters show the tremendous destiny of a pair of loving people undergoing deep injustice. Heloise s prolonged complaints testify that she is an abused child. Abelard s therapeutic efforts to comfort her are developed in letters that should not be taken only as religious admonitions. They show an exemplary piety and a huge acceptance of what they prefer consider the divine will. It finally bears fruit: they will die in odor of sanctity. The essential is not given without further ado from the readers; it remains to be disclosed by cute students. It first appears to be a love tragedy, but it is indeed and above all a clandestine denunciation of a crime so much so that the Correspondence should be considered a thriller where crime and criminal-readers will soon recognize them-are almost not mentioned because the important thing is not human judgement, but the way of the Cross for two martyrs of a social organization. Explanations and proofs are presented in a successive volume of Remarks by the same author Oberson. But here is the real source and the indispensable reference book that readers need to enjoy identifying the wiles of the master in dialectics, Abelard. He is not just stoic in his behavior, he is skilled in his sarcastic and allegoric denunciation of the crime committed against his protegee, Heloise, victim of, and pregnant from an incestuous rape committed outside their connection. Astute readers will not have trouble finding that the future monk, Abelard, rightly proud of his high moral attitude (continence) cannot be the abuser of his young student. He cannot be the father of Heloise s bastard. Oberson is well aware that this key for understanding the plot should not have been immediately entrusted to obdurate and impenitent readers, but without this help, the story would anew be wrongly interpreted. Therefore an introduction is given to counteract the preconceived ideas of others who make Abelard pederast. That Abelard has loved her, tis true, yet essentially like a Good Samaritan his neighbor with all his heart, soul and mind. His paradoxical demonstrations of lust are just courtroom posturing. Good pupil, Heloise can also discuss scabrous situations; she knows a good bit of the affair. Let us be worthy of these masters in parody; they have no other means to absolve themselves. Good students should try to flawlessly understand their message. He will die for her, socially and physically, as the true friend. Heloise, harmful to love in being pregnant, harmful to the reputation of her rescuer, having been forced to marry him, commits social suicide at the age of sixteen to account her indefectible friendship. The book should help readers answer Philip s question to the Ethiopian Eunuch consulting Isaiah: Understandest thou what thou readest? Act 8. Seller Inventory # APC9781484850558

About this Item: The School of Universal Philosophy and Healing, London, 1961. First Edition. Original newspaper-type publication. Folio - 15 inches x 10 inches. 16pp. Printed on cheap newspaper stock. Black and white illustrations. An early issue of this uncommon magazine. The "Occult Gazette" was edited, and largely written, by the outspoken British Spiritualist medium Gladys Spearman-Cook (1900 - 1984). Spearman-Cook founded a Spiritualist organization, "The School of Universal Philosophy and Healing" in 1946, although it does not seem to have gathered momentum until the mid-1950s. She began publishing this journal in 1960. Spearman-Cook claimed to receive instructions from her spirit guide "Ra-Men-Ra" who relayed communications from various higher entities including "The Lord of the Scorpio Hierarchy, the Great Eagle" which she relayed in "The Occult Gazette." The journal covers a wide variety of metaphysical topics, from chanelling and mediumship, to the coming of "the Aquarian Christos" to discourses on aliens and UFOs. Otherwise the subject matter of the paper was reasonably typical of occult magazines, exploring topics such as Egyptian mysteries, grail, astrology, herbalism, mysticism, healing, etc. along with advertisements, letters to the editor, etc. Spearman-Cook (in her role as amanuensis to "Ra-Men-Ra") was no stranger to controversy, and appeared on radio and in newspapers (such as "The News of the World") making claims about the failures of science (in particular the interpretation of the results of space exploration), and making various arcane pronouncements, such as declaring a new calendar (based on the birth date of her current incarnation), prophesying various events, etc. etc. Being printed on very cheap paper it shows some light wear and creasing, but is still in VG + condition.

The journal covers a wide variety of metaphysical topics, from chanelling and mediumship, to the coming of "the Aquarian Christos" to discourses on aliens and UFOs. Otherwise the subject matter of the paper was reasonably typical of occult magazines, exploring topics such as Egyptian mysteries, grail, astrology, herbalism, mysticism, healing, etc. along with advertisements, letters to the editor, etc. Spearman-Cook (in her role as amanuensis to "Ra-Men-Ra") was no stranger to controversy, and appeared on radio and in newspapers (such as "The News of the World") making claims about the failures of science (in particular the interpretation of the results of space exploration), and making various arcane pronouncements, such as declaring a new calendar (based on the birth date of her current incarnation), prophesying various events, etc. etc. Some light wear and creasing, but is still in VG + condition.

About this Item: Createspace Independent Publishing Platform, United States, 2015. Paperback. Condition: New. Bilingual, Translation. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.This is a genuine literal translation of Abelard s and Heloise s famous Correspondence. The English version is confronted with the first printed Latin text of 1615. Both texts are divided in 4542 items, numbered and juxtaposed for ease of reading, understanding and criticizing. This work provides proofs that the common reception of the life of those so-called lovers is incorrect and unscrupulous. With such a tool in the hands, everybody may interfere in the interpretation of one or another sentence or word. He has the capacity to indicate what part of the discourse is disputable. This kind of progressive translation is not only intended for students, but also for honest amateurs of truth in historical research. Such a Correspondence is not a love romance. It is a special way of exposing human tragedy and also and above all the description by the victims themselves of the strategy of redemption they adopt facing an unnamable infamy. In the first letter, indisputably written to his friend Heloise, Abelard summarizes his misfortunes: they are the consequences from Heloise s unfortunate condition. The following five letters show the tremendous destiny of a pair of loving people undergoing deep injustice. Heloise s prolonged complaints testify that she is an abused child. Abelard s therapeutic efforts to comfort her are developed in letters that should not be taken only as religious admonitions. They show an exemplary piety and a huge acceptance of what they prefer consider the divine will. It finally bears fruit: they will die in odor of sanctity. The essential is not given without further ado from the readers; it remains to be disclosed by cute students. It first appears to be a love tragedy, but it is indeed and above all a clandestine denunciation of a crime so much so that the Correspondence should be considered a thriller where crime and criminal-readers will soon recognize them-are almost not mentioned because the important thing is not human judgement, but the way of the Cross for two martyrs of a social organization. Explanations and proofs are presented in a successive volume of Remarks by the same author Oberson. But here is the real source and the indispensable reference book that readers need to enjoy identifying the wiles of the master in dialectics, Abelard. He is not just stoic in his behavior, he is skilled in his sarcastic and allegoric denunciation of the crime committed against his protegee, Heloise, victim of, and pregnant from an incestuous rape committed outside their connection. Astute readers will not have trouble finding that the future monk, Abelard, rightly proud of his high moral attitude (continence) cannot be the abuser of his young student. He cannot be the father of Heloise s bastard. Oberson is well aware that this key for understanding the plot should not have been immediately entrusted to obdurate and impenitent readers, but without this help, the story would anew be wrongly interpreted. Therefore an introduction is given to counteract the preconceived ideas of others who make Abelard pederast. That Abelard has loved her, tis true, yet essentially like a Good Samaritan his neighbor with all his heart, soul and mind. His paradoxical demonstrations of lust are just courtroom posturing. Good pupil, Heloise can also discuss scabrous situations; she knows a good bit of the affair. Let us be worthy of these masters in parody; they have no other means to absolve themselves. Good students should try to flawlessly understand their message. He will die for her, socially and physically, as the true friend. Heloise, harmful to love in being pregnant, harmful to the reputation of her rescuer, having been forced to marry him, commits social suicide at the age of sixteen to account her indefectible friendship. The book should help readers answer Philip s question to the Ethiopian Eunuch consulting Isaiah: Understandest thou what thou readest? Act 8: Seller Inventory # APC9781484850558

About this Item: University of Washington Press, United States, 2015. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. In recent years, global attention has focused on how women in communities of Muslims are revitalizing Islam by linking interpretation of religious ideas to the protection of rights and freedoms. Humanizing the Sacred demonstrates how Sunni women activists in Malaysia are fracturing institutionalized Islamic authority by generating new understandings of rights and redefining the moral obligations of their community. Based on ethnographic research of Sisters in Islam (SIS), a nongovernmental organization of professional women promoting justice and equality, Basarudin examines SIS members involvement in the production and transmission of Islamic knowledge to reformulate legal codes and reconceptualize gender discourses. By weaving together women s lived realities, feminist interpretations of Islamic texts, and Malaysian cultural politics, this book illuminates how a localized struggle of claiming rights takes shape within a transnational landscape. It provides a vital understanding of how women live Islam through the integration of piety and reason and the implications of women s political activism for the transformation of Islamic tradition itself.

About this Item: ABC-CLIO, United States, 1990. Paperback. Condition: New. New.. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.Edmund Sullivan describes the working of his book as an elaboration of its title Critical Psychology and Pedagogy: Interpretation of the Personal World. Sullivan thoroughly develops his meaning of critical psychology and demonstrates its relationship to the personal world. His bottom line: psychology is extraordinarily relevant to the current working of society, playing an important role in the organization and maintenance of its institutions. Developing this critical pedagogy for the interpretation of the personal world, Sullivan completes his work with concrete examples of how critical psychology addresses applied problems. While his examples come from his own background in education, this pedagogy can be applied productively to the psychological discourse of any area or discipline. Critical Psychology and Pedagogy holds the individual and society in dynamic tension. In his first three chapters Sullivan critiques the notion of individualism, abandons it, and develops the concept of the personal . Embarking on an interdisciplinary venture, he broadens psychological discourse to deal with the personal world as it is linked to society and systematically examines the issues of power dynamics. Theory becomes moments of reflection in action. Finally, he proposes a radical orientation in which emancipatory interest in human freedom (is) based on the intentional action of persons. He completes his study by applying his pedagogy to concrete examples. Seller Inventory # AAV9780897892131
