Life is Continuum with Discontinuities Life is Continuum with Discontinuities Новинка

Life is Continuum with Discontinuities

This book deals in multifold dimensions of inner self, associated problems and their solutions as I conceived by the self analysis and from dormant resources after engrossment in self. The book is unique since it contains the essence of the solutions of complex problems, which I faced when I was at the cross roads in life; how my tender mental thinking got modulated; and how mysterious divine sacred forces guided me to climb the ladder of life even being all alone through out from childhood. The solution of these issues lead to perceive that life is continuum but with discontinuities; every aspect is a part of divine existence and miracle. I experienced the core of different creative approaches through inner divine unison with self being in time-less mode, annihilation of mind, and analyzed that sacred force is behind the existence, expressions and expanse in all modes of continuum of life with multifaceted discontinuities. The book is the illustration of the source and thread of expressions to various complex issues through glimpses of self in self that precipitated principles of continuum and discontinuities in life through the pursuit of pathless path of evolution.

Ethnic Relations in Everyday Life

Hong Kong has generally been regarded as a socially homogenous city predominately populated by ethnic Chinese. Ethnic minorities are usually absent in public discourse and ethnic relations are generally considered harmonious in the city. However, despite the lack of an institutionalized form of racism in Hong Kong, ethnic tensions do exist in the everyday life among individuals. This study is concerned about the everyday level of ethnic relations in Hong Kong. It reveals how ethnic relations are dealt with by both ethnic minorities and the local Chinese people residing in the city. In particular, the way in which ethnic boundary is constantly reproduced and negotiated by the two parties in their everyday life is examined. The South Asian communities, including the Indian, Pakistani, Nepalese and Sri Lankan communities, are selected as the target in this study because they are the largest groups of ethnic minorities and they have a long history of settlement in Hong Kong. Furthermore, by revealing the ways in which ethnic boundary can be negotiated, it is argued that there is potential for ethnic minorities to open up alternative meanings of the social category of “Hong Konger”.

Using Transformative Learning as a Framework for Women and Running

This qualitative narrative inquiry explores learning and change in women’s self-perceptions through regular participation in running. In-depth interviews of 11 adult women who had been running between 1 to 4 years were conducted. Based on the interviews, a unique narrative was created for each participant. Using the lens of transformative learning, transcripts of the interviews were analyzed individually to see if the subject had a deep paradigm shift in self-perception based on the description of their running experience. The exploration of the personal narratives of adult women runners reveals the women did see themselves differently and most acted differently after they adopted running. The health related literature does boast about the positive correlation of exercise and improved self-esteem, self-perception, self-worth, yet the health literature lacks what this improvement looks and feels like in rich, descriptive terms. This research provides examples of what this felt like, and what the application of this new perception of self looks like in the runner’s everyday life.

From Still Life to the Screen From Still Life to the Screen Новинка

From Still Life to the Screen

"From Still Life to the Screen" explores the print culture of 18th-century London, focusing on the correspondences between images and consumer objects. In his lively and insightful text, Joseph Monteyne considers such themes as the display of objects in still lifes and markets, the connoisseur's fetishistic gaze, and the fusion of body and ornament in satires of fashion. The desire for goods emerged in tandem with modern notions of identity, in which things were seen to mirror and symbolize the self. Prints, particularly graphic satires by such artists as Matthew and Mary Darly, James Gillray, William Hogarth, Thomas Rowlandson and Paul Sandby, were actively involved in this shift. Many of these images play with the boundaries between the animate and the inanimate, self and thing. They also reveal the recurring motif of image display, whether on screens, by magic lanterns, or in "raree-shows" and print-shop windows. The author links this motif to new conceptions of the self, specifically through the penetration of spectacle into everyday experience.

The ZPC is formed by points of consistence (e.g.: house, school, work) and psychological paths, which the individual takes daily and which connect points. The net formed by the points of consistence and the psychological paths, because of the conditions of post-modernity, become more and more fragmented. In this context, the modules of connection appear (collective and private vehicles). The modules of connection isolate the individual from the space creating an intra-module space (movable space), also part of the ZPC. The present study show the conception of the Method of ZPC. This way this study contributes to the construction of Geographies of Everyday Life, where the knowledge of the daily life is after all initiated from the subjective analyses of the geographical space.

The Inspired Narcissist: Recovering the Narcissistic Wound

Establishing a relationship with the world-other-than-self heals narcissism. The relationship between the ego and Self is proposed to mirror the relationship the individual holds with the world-other-than-self. The world-other-than-self is the means by which Self communicates to the individual through objects, people, and nature. Cultural structures such as myth and art help to bridge the separations between individuals, the culture, and the natural world as human beings experience it. The myth of Narcissus and Echo especially is conceived of as an object that, once listened to, reveals a meaningful connection to life. The core theme of loss reveals the grief at play in the individual’s relationship to the world-other-than-self. Through language and the story of suffering as we perceive it and speak it, narcissism is revealed as a potential root of awareness of the very meaning of life. The recovery of meaning in this particular myth establishes a relationship, direct and sustained, to the cyclic nature and rhythm of life and death. For the individual, discovering the dynamics that establish the narcissistic aspect of oneself initiates a process of Self awareness that creates life.

Making Sense of Everyday Life

This accessible, introductory text explains the importance of studying 'everyday life' in the social sciences. Susie Scott examines such varied topics as leisure, eating and drinking, the idea of home, and time and schedules in order to show how societies are created and reproduced by the apparently mundane 'micro' level practices of everyday life. Each chapter is organized around three main themes: 'rituals and routines', 'social order', and 'challenging the taken-for-granted', with intriguing examples and illustrations. Theoretical approaches from ethnomethodology, Symbolic Interactionism and social psychology are introduced and applied to real-life situations, and there is clear emphasis on empirical research findings throughout.Social order depends on individuals following norms and rules which are so familiar as to appear natural; yet, as Scott encourages the reader to discover, these are always open to question and investigation. This user-friendly book will appeal to undergraduate students across the social sciences, including the sociology of everyday life, the sociology of emotions, social psychology and cultural studies, and will reveal the fascinating significance our everyday habits hold.

Integration of urban archaeological resources to everyday life

The recent developments in urban conservation and archaeology have given considerable importance to the presentation of urban archaeological remains to the public, in order to raise public awareness for their conservation. Parallel to this, urban planners seek to make better places for people through good urban design with an emphasis on sustainable urban development. In multi-layered centers of historic towns, in case the necessary measures to integrate the archaeological remains to contemporary town are not taken, these sites turn to problem areas which neither meets the goals of conservation nor urban planning. In this context, this work discusses how these remains can be integrated to everyday life in historic town centers. This is mainly achieved by analyzing two successful European cases and World Heritage Cities Tarragona and Verona. Later, the pros and cons of Tarsus, a well-known town with its rich archaeological potential will be under debate in order to discuss the deficiencies of urban conservation approaches and planning in multi-layered towns. The work should be useful to professionals in archaeology, restoration, architecture, urban planning and urban design.

Changing the World from the Inside Out

Bringing positive social change to any system takes deep self-awareness, caring, courage, and long-term commitment. But polarization, the slow pace of change, and internal conflicts among activists and organizations often leads to burnout and discouragement among the very people needed to make a difference. Changing the World from the Inside Out distills centuries of Jewish wisdom about cultivating and refining the inner life into an accessible program for building the qualities necessary to accomplish sustainable change. Through explorations of deep motivation, inner-drive, and traits like trust and anger, this book engages the reader in a journey of self-development and -transformation--demonstrating that sustainable activism is indeed a spiritual practice. The author offers a program of practices drawn from the Mussar tradition, in which you systematically take stock of your reactions, emotions, motivations, and behavior on a daily basis, using Jewish texts and contemplations as a springboard. Part of the beauty of Mussar practice is that it shows how ordinary life provides the ideal circumstances for refining ourselves--right in the middle of the choices and challenges of everyday living. This book helps the reader engage in a spiritual journey of self-development and social transformation that he or she can take into the public realm.
Re-Visiting Hegel’s Life-and-Death Struggle for Recognition Re-Visiting Hegel’s Life-and-Death Struggle for Recognition Новинка

Re-Visiting Hegel’s Life-and-Death Struggle for Recognition

This essay is an immanent critique of Hegel’s theory of recognition in the section “independence and dependence of self-consciousness: lordship and bondage” of his Phenomenology of Spirit. First, it shows that the Notion of the unity of the self-consciousness does not require the self-consciousnesses’ equality. Second, it demonstrates the inherent inconsistency of a fight that would be motivated by a desire to show one’s capacity to risk his life. Third, it assesses that a fight motivated by the mere desire to remain in life puts the concept of labour at the principle of the master’s domination thus leading the dialectic to a successful recognition between equal consciousnesses.

Time and Private Languages Time and Private Languages Новинка

Time and Private Languages

This essay centers on the poet Jacques Roubaud, and his mnemonic reworking of Marcel Proust' Remembrance of things past, the philosophy of Ludwig Wittgenstein, and medieval Japanese poetics. It brings to light an implicit, formerly hidden meaning in Roubaud’s work. His books of poems show how our author casts the issue of self-definition in discourse as a response to one of the central paradoxes regarding language and social interaction, exemplified in Ludwig Wittgenstein’s private language argument. In Roubaud’s six-volume prose, he affirms that he suspended the use of poetic memory, which is an experimental renunciation of poetic language in order to explore what happens to written truth when private lyricism is absent. If one forsakes the poetic function of language, meanings that inform other types of writing degenerate and die, thus remaining as mere chatter, or the tautology of everyday life.

Blank Slate: A Comprehensive Library of Photographic Templates

Blank Slate provides graphic designers and advertisers with photographic dummies for the true-to-life and convincing presentation of their corporate designs. Every graphic designer and advertising professional knows the drill. After a logo or corporate design has been created, it needs to be presented and sold to a client. Showing preliminary drafts on paperboard isn't adequate. In order to communicate the idea behind the design, it is much more effective to present it in the application for which it is meant - whether on a shopping bag, on a company car, in a brochure, or on a variety of other products. This method of presentation makes designs come to life and gives the client a real idea of how they will work and why. Blank Slate is a compilation of 400 photographic dummies of everyday objects that are depicted in the book and can also be downloaded for free as digital files. With the help of these dummies, any designer can present his or her work in the way that gives clients the most concrete grasp of how their corporate designs will function in the real world. Until now, hardly any suitable dummies existed for creating such presentations. The few that did exist were of moderate quality and high prices. In a similar fashion to our bestseller Neubau Welt, the handbook Blank Slate provides designers with inspiring examples and practical digital tools that will make the implementation, presentation, and sale of their work much easier.

The Marshmallow Test: Mastering Self-Control

A child is presented with a marshmallow and given a choice: Eat this one now, or wait and enjoy two later. What will she do? And what are the implications for her behaviour later in life? Walter Mischel's now iconic "marshmallow test," one of the most famous experiments in the history of psychology, proved that the ability to delay gratification is critical to living a successful and fulfilling life: self-control not only predicts higher marks in school, better social and cognitive functioning, and a greater sense of self-worth; it also helps us manage stress, pursue goals more effectively, and cope with painful emotions. But is willpower prewired, or can it be taught? In his groundbreaking new book, Dr. Mischel draws on decades of compelling research and life examples to explore the nature of willpower, identifying the cognitive skills and mental mechanisms that enable it and showing how these can be applied to challenges in everyday life - from weight control to quitting smoking, overcoming heartbreak, making major decisions, and planning for retirement. With profound implications for the choices we make in parenting, education, public policy and self-care, The Marshmallow Test will change the way we think about who we are and what we can be. And since, as Mischel argues, a life with too much self-control can be as unfulfilling as one with too little, this book will also teach you when it's time to ring the bell and enjoy that marshmallow.

Internet & the birth of InfoCom industry IT & Economic Performance

As Heraclitus said in the 4th century BC, "Nothing is permanent, but change!" Everyday life in the world societies has been touched and in some parts substantially altered by the advent of the Internet and the so called Information & Communication Technologies (ICTs).

The influence and implications of this have an impact at a macro level in the way our governments, economies and businesses operate, and in our everyday lives. The true value of ICTs is summarized in the words of the Nobel prized economist Joseph Stiglitz: "The new technologies have caused increases in productivity that will continue to make a huge difference in our living standards”

The Everyday Political Economy of Southeast Asia

In this empirically rich collection of essays, a team of leading international scholars explore the way that economic transformation is sustained and challenged by everyday practices across Southeast Asia. Drawing together a body of interdisciplinary scholarship, the authors explore how the emergence of more marketized forms of economic policy-making in Southeast Asia impacts everyday life. The book's twelve chapters address topics such as domestic migration, trade union politics in Myanmar, mining in the Philippines, halal food in Singapore, Islamic finance in Malaysia, education reform in Indonesia, street vending in Malaysia, regional migration between Malaysia, Indonesia and Cambodia, and Southeast Asian domestic workers in Hong Kong. This collection not only enhances understandings of the everyday political economies at work in specific Southeast Asian sites, but makes a major theoretical contribution to the development of an everyday political economy approach in which perspectives from developing economies and non-Western actors are taken seriously.

A History of Everyday Things: The Birth of Consumption in France, 1600-1800

A History of Everyday Things is a pioneering essay by one of the world's leading cultural historians that sheds light on the origins of the consumer society, and thereby the birth of the modern world. Things that we regard as the everyday objects of consumption have not always been so: how, therefore, have people in the modern world become "prisoners of objects," as Rousseau put it? Daniel Roche answers this fundamental question of historical anthropology, and imaginatively explores the origins of the daily furnishings of modern life.
