Socioeconomics of Agriculture (SpringerBriefs in Economics)

by Stefan Mann

This open access book applies for the first time emerging concepts of socioeconomics to analyse an economic sector, namely agriculture. It considers the rational choices of all actors in the system (just as agricultural economists do) and their cultural preferences and constraints (just as rural sociologists do). Socioeconomic concepts are subsequently used to structure agricultural issues with regard to the three governance mechanisms (hierarchy, markets, and cooperation), and different agricultural systems are presented and compared. The book will be of interest to social scientists with various backgrounds, and seeks to break down the barriers of single-disciplinary thinking....

From Physics To Life: A journey to the infinitesimally small and back

by Damiano Anselmi

The discoveries made in physics during the past one hundred years or so provide answers to the deepest questions we may ask ourselves (who are we?, where do we come from?, what is the purpose of life?, what is the origin of the world?, what is the meaning of everything?).

In the first part of the journey, we get to the atomic scales of magnitude, which are the realm of quantum mechanics. There, we learn about a number of disconcerting phenomena, which upset your understanding of life and nature. We make the acqu...

Hierarchy

by Agni Yoga Society

Hierarchy is the seventh book from the Agni Yoga Series which is composed of fourteen books. In them is found a synthesis of ancient Eastern beliefs and modern Western thought and a bridge between the spiritual and the scientific. Unlike previous yogas, Agni Yoga is a path not of physical disciplines, meditation, or asceticism—but of practice in daily life. It is the yoga of fiery energy, of consciousness, of responsible, directed thought. It teaches that the evolution of the planetary consciousness is a pressing necessity and that, through individual striving, it is an attainable aspiration for mankind. It affirms the existence of the Hierarchy of Light and the center of the Heart as the link with the Hierarchy and with the far-off worlds. Though not systematized in an ordinary sense, A...

Chasing The Dragon: Are You Chem-Friendly? (The Chemsex Trilogy Book 1)

by Cameron Yorke

2015 was the year of the chem-sex revolution amongst the gay scene in London. It seemed the entire population wanted to get ‘High & Horny’, and ‘PnP’ was the priority for weekend entertainment, with young and old alike, afterall, it was ‘just sex’, and relationships were a thing of the past - One either denied their existence entirely, or swore that an open arrangement was the norm. Chasing the Dragon is a portayal of this phenomenon, and explores the use of recreational drugs and the social impact on those who indulged, as well as the wider community, with valuable insight into the machinations of the chem-sex culture, and the wider recreational drug scene of London, and Britain in the 21st century, and proof that the ‘War on Drugs’ has failed....

YOGA DOES NOT WORK: Without the Transitional 'I': The Astounding Vedic Secret to the God State, Turiya (The Sublime Destiny Series Book 1)

by Richardson (Pen Name), Samuel

Going Beyond "The Power of Now," "The Science of Yoga" and "The Biology of Belief to the Core Experience of Nirvana.Recent scientific studies on the effects of meditation upon brain development have revealed a shocking truth: "that meditation does not lead to Nirvana, but to the enhanced development of the cognitive faculties, which support the ego." These studies expose the radical difference between the ancient and modern understanding of spirituality.The ancient spiritual quest had as its goal the eradication of ego and a return to ones natural state of enlightened Self-knowledge, while contemporary secular practices focus on strengthening cognitive control through various forms of meditation and mindfulness training. These modern practices only lead us ever deeper into ignorance and se...

The Public and the Private in Aristotle's Political Philosophy

by Judith A. Swanson

Aristotle offers a conception of the private and its relationship to the public that suggests a remedy to the limitations of liberalism today, according to Judith A. Swanson. In this fresh and lucid interpretation of Aristotle's political philosophy, Swanson challenges the dominant view that he regards the private as a mere precondition to the public. She argues, rather, that for Aristotle private activity develops virtue and is thus essential both to individual freedom and happiness and to the well-being of the political order.Swanson presents an innovative reading of The Politics which revises our understanding of Aristotle's political economy and his views on women and the family, slavery, and the relation between friendship and civic solidarity. She examines the private activities Aris...

Free is Beautiful: Why Catholics should be libertarian

by Randy England

Free is Beautiful by Randy England uses the scriptures, the writings of the saints and the Catechism to show why Catholicism is essentially libertarian. The golden rule teaches that we must not do to another what we would not want done to ourselves. Don't cheat. Don't steal. Don't hit. Don't harm others. Live and let live. Mind your own business. Libertarians call this the non-aggression principle. Centuries ago, St. Thomas Aquinas and St. Augustine recognized the futility and evil in trying to force people to be virtuous. They taught that government should limit itself to keeping the peace by protecting people's lives and property. The modern state knows no such limits. It is time to consider libertarianism, the most just system in a fallen world and the only political philosophy that t...

6 Million Abortions: How Communism Utilized Mass-Scale Abortion Exterminating Europe’s Fastest Growing Nation (Political Journalism Book 1)

by Ivan Dikov

Europe’s once fastest growing nation, Bulgaria, has become the world’s fastest shrinking nation within decades – during which it was ruled over by communism. As a result, the medium-sized European nation has suffered 6 – 8 million abortions, a number surpassing the number of its entire population.The telling case of communist and post-communist Bulgaria discussed in detail in this book demonstrates that communism utilized mass-scale abortion at first in order to pursue its utopian goals, and then in order to cushion the blows of its failures. Abortion figures from other ex-communist countries such as Romania and the former Soviet Union are even more staggering in absolute terms – but are identical in relative terms and render the same conclusions. This book offers statistical dat...

Infinity II

by Agni Yoga Society

Infinity II is the sixth book from the Agni Yoga Series which is composed of fourteen books. In them is found a synthesis of ancient Eastern beliefs and modern Western thought and a bridge between the spiritual and the scientific. Unlike previous yogas, Agni Yoga is a path not of physical disciplines, meditation, or asceticism—but of practice in daily life. It is the yoga of fiery energy, of consciousness, of responsible, directed thought. It teaches that the evolution of the planetary consciousness is a pressing necessity and that, through individual striving, it is an attainable aspiration for mankind. It affirms the existence of the Hierarchy of Light and the center of the Heart as the link with the Hierarchy and with the far-off worlds. Though not systematized in an ordinary sense, A...

Against Meritocracy (Open Access): Culture, power and myths of mobility

by Jo Littler

Meritocracy today involves the idea that whatever your social position at birth, society ought to offer enough opportunity and mobility for ‘talent’ to combine with ‘effort’ in order to ‘rise to the top’. This idea is one of the most prevalent social and cultural tropes of our time, as palpable in the speeches of politicians as in popular culture. In this book Jo Littler argues that meritocracy is the key cultural means of legitimation for contemporary neoliberal culture – and that whilst it promises opportunity, it in fact creates new forms of social division.Against Meritocracy is split into two parts. Part I explores the genealogies of meritocracy within social theory, political discourse and working cultures. It traces the dramatic U-turn in meritocracy’s meaning, from ...

The Oldest Vocation: Christian Motherhood in the Medieval West

by Clarissa W. Atkinson

According to an old story, a woman concealed her sex and ruled as pope for a few years in the ninth century. Pope Joan was not betrayed by a lover or discovered by an enemy; her downfall came when she went into labor during a papal procession through the streets of Rome. From the myth of Joan to the experiences of saints, nuns, and ordinary women, The Oldest Vocation brings to life both the richness and the troubling contradictions of Christian motherhood in medieval Europe.After tracing the roots of medieval ideologies of motherhood in early Christianity, Clarissa W. Atkinson reconstructs the physiological assumptions underlying medieval notions about women's bodies and reproduction; inherited from Greek science and popularized through the practice of midwifery, these assumptions helped s...

Emphatic (Soul Serenade Book 1)

by Kaylee Ryan

There comes a point in your life where you have to say enough is enough.

I wasted my college years on a guy who played with my head, played with my heart. I was blinded by the fairytale, the one that didn’t exist.

The day I gave up on the idea of happily ever after, my focus became me. Moving forward and establishing my career.

Until one day…

I didn’t expect him. My new boss, a six foot two, inked rock god. I believed I was working for the record label, I was wrong.

It’s impossible for me to keep my distance, believe me I’ve tried. He’s not who I expected him to be. He’s so much more he’s…Emphatic

While many of these fables are fictitious and are not founded in fact, they nevertheless teach lessons or truths to which most people can relate and seek to incorporate into their scheme of thinking and personal philosophy.

Today Iran, Azerbaijan, Afghanistan and the greater region influenced by the Persian culture (such as Georgia, Armenia, Turkey and Dagestan) celebrate this national epic.The work is of central importance in Persian culture, regarded as a literary masterpiece, and definitive of t...

A Philosophical Examination of Social Justice and Child Poverty

by G. Schweiger

This book is open access under a CCBY license.   Child poverty is one of the biggest challenges of today, harming millions of children. In this book, it is investigated from a philosophical social justice perspective, primarily in the context of modern welfare states. Based on both normative theory (particularly the capability approach) and empirical evidence, the authors identify the injustices of child poverty, showing how it negatively affects the well-being of children as well as their whole life course. But child poverty is not 'given by nature'. It is avoidable and there is certainly the moral duty to alleviate it. Therefore, Graf and Schweiger develop a normative theory of responsibilities, which clarifies the moral role of different agents in the poor child's environment – the f...

Intimate Japan: Ethnographies of Closeness and Conflict

by Allison Alexy

How do couples build intimacy in an era that valorizes independence and self-responsibility? How can a man be a good husband when full-time jobs are scarce? How can unmarried women find fulfillment and recognition outside of normative relationships? How can a person express their sexuality when there is no terminology that feels right? In contemporary Japan, broad social transformations are reflected and refracted in changing intimate relationships. As the Japanese population ages, the low birth rate shrinks the population, and decades of recession radically restructure labor markets, Japanese intimate relationships, norms, and ideals are concurrently shifting.This volume explores a broad range of intimate practices in Japan in the first decades of the 2000s to trace how social change is b...

Pragmatism as Post-Postmodernism: Lessons from John Dewey (American Philosophy)

by Larry A. Hickman

Larry A. Hickman presents John Dewey as very much at home in the busy mix of contemporary philosophy—as a thinker whose work now, more than fifty years after his death, still furnishes fresh insights into cutting-edge philosophical debates. Hickman argues that it is precisely the rich, pluralistic mix of contemporary philosophical discourse, with its competing research programs in French-inspired postmodernism, phenomenology, Critical Theory, Heidegger studies, analytic philosophy, and neopragmatism—all busily engaging, challenging, and informing one another—that invites renewed examination of Dewey’s central ideas.Hickman offers a Dewey who both anticipated some of the central insights of French-inspired postmodernism and, if he were alive today, would certainly be one of its most...

Drinking in Victorian and Edwardian Britain: Beyond the Spectre of the Drunkard

by Thora Hands

This open access book surveys drinking in Britain between the Licensing Act of 1869 and the wartime regulations imposed on alcohol production and consumption after 1914. This was a period marked by the expansion of the drink industry and by increasingly restrictive licensing laws. Politics and commerce co-existed with moral and medical concerns about drunkenness and combined, these factors pushed alcohol consumers into the public spotlight. Through an analysis of public and private records, medical texts and sociological studies, the book investigates the reasons why Victorians and Edwardians consumed alcohol in the ways that they did and explores the ideas about alcohol that circulated in the period.  This book shows that they had many reasons for purchasing and consuming alcoholic subst...

Archaeological Perspectives on Warfare on the Great Plains

by Andrew Clark

The Great Plains has been central to academic and popular visions of Native American warfare, largely because the region’s well-documented violence was so central to the expansion of Euroamerican settlement. However, social violence has deep roots on the Plains beyond this post-Contact perception, and these roots have not been systematically examined through archaeology before. War was part, and perhaps an important part, of the process of ethnogenesis that helped to define tribal societies in the region, and it affected many other aspects of human lives there. In Archaeological Perspectives on Warfare on the Great Plains, anthropologists who study sites across the Plains critically examine regional themes of warfare from pre-Contact and post-Contact periods and assess how war shape...

Tao Thoughts

by Arran Scott

The Tao is one of the World's oldest philosophical texts. Its origins are largely unknown, its language is open to varied interpretations and its verses touch on many subjects: all of which makes it a perfect vehicle to examine our own thoughts on these matters.
Often, the thoughts and beliefs that drive people's behaviour and form their character, remain a mystery, even to themselves. If most people were asked to describe what their beliefs and attitudes were to the things that really matter in life, they might well find themselves in unfamiliar territory. Not only is it strange for us to have to list what we think of as the key issues in life, but to then, unaided, have to define what are thoughts are on those issues, is not easy.
Some people might respond to the questio...

Renowned at the time for their practical and even-handed approach to the human experience of religion, the lectures form a sympathetic and analytical portrait not of the church, but of the personalized experiences of religious life. James examines the words of writers and philosophers from Immanuel Kant to Plato to Ralph Waldo Emerson to Marcus Aurelius in his investigations of faith, the soul, and systems of belief.

Consciousness and Moral Status (Routledge Focus on Philosophy)

by Joshua Shepherd

It seems obvious that phenomenally conscious experience is something of great value, and that this value maps onto a range of important ethical issues. For example, claims about the value of life for those in Permanent Vegetative State (PVS); debates about treatment and study of disorders of consciousness; controversies about end-of-life care for those with advanced dementia; and arguments about the moral status of embryos, fetuses, and non-human animals arguably turn on the moral significance of various facts about consciousness. However, though work has been done on the moral significance of elements of consciousness, such as pain and pleasure, little explicit attention has been devoted to the ethical significance of consciousness.In this book Joshua Shepherd presents a systematic accoun...

At the opposite end of the social spectrum was an impetuous rural youth who was a petty thief, obsessed with the power of a gun. The suspect in the massacre of almost an entire family was a farm boy with a history of mental illness. Another youth with a disturbing past stalked young women. A band of criminal brothers made a cold, calculating decision to permanently silence a witness. These men were separated by time and place, but had one thing in common. They were killers!...

As far as the regime’s fault lines are concerned, the evidence presented by the authors shows no reversal, or even narrowing, of these structural dysfunctions in Putin’s third presidential term.

Topics covered here include Russia's political economy, political geography, and politics of federalism; the regime, ideology, public opinion, and legitimacy; and potential defeat and radicalization of civil society. Emerging in these pages is a finely textured portrait of a society rife in complexities, contradictions, and postponed but ...

Empowering Adolescent Girls in Developing Countries: Gender Justice and Norm Change

Adolescence is a pivotal time in a girl's life. The development of educational, physical, psychosocial, familial, political and economic capabilities enable girls to reach their full potential and contribute to the wellbeing of their families and society. However, progress is still significantly constrained by discriminatory gender norms and the related attitudes and practices which restrict girls’ horizons, restrain their ambition and, if unfettered, allow exploitation and abuse.Empowering Adolescent Girls in Developing Countries explores the detrimental impact of discriminatory gender norms on adolescent girls’ lives across very different contexts.

Self, God and Immortality: A Jamesian Investigation (American Philosophy Book 12)

by Eugene Fontinell

Can we who have been touched by the scientific, intellectual, and experimental revolutions of modern and contemporary times still believe with and degree of coherence and consistency that we as individual persons are immortal. Indeed, is there even good cause to hope that we are? In examining the present relationship of reason to faith, can we find justifying reasons for faith? These are the central questions in Self, God, and Immortality, a compelling exercise in philosophical theology. Drawing upon the works of William James and the principles of American Pragmatism, Eugene Fontinell extrapolates carefully from "data given in experience" to a model of the cosmic process open to the idea that individual identity may survive bodily dissolution. Presupposing that the possibility of personal...

This fascinating new book examines diversity in moral judgements, drawing on recent work in social, personality, and evolutionary psychology, reviewing the factors that influence the moral judgments people make.Why do reasonable people so often disagree when drawing distinctions between what is morally right and wrong? Even when individuals agree in their moral pronouncements, they may employ different standards, different comparative processes, or entirely disparate criteria in their judgments. Examining the sources of this variety, the author expertly explores morality using ethics position theory, alongside other theoretical perspectives in moral psychology, and shows how it can relate to contemporary social issues from abortion to premarital sex to human rights.

It is not. Dear Anxiety is a first-hand account of John’s extraordinary journey of recovery from an existential crisis so profound that it left most therapists clueless about where to even begin. After many years of fruitless attempts to resolve the debilitating anxiety and depression which followed, John finally met a gifted therapist who was willing and able to go with him to the complex depths of healing necessary for recovery.

Tunguska: An Apocalyptic Event Beyond Belief

What happened to the Tunguska forest? Scientists have been searching for answers since it happened over 100 years ago! Could the answers lay in the paranormal?
There was a massive explosion on the 30th June 1908. Flattening 2,000 square kilometres of Siberian forest, the exact cause of the incredible blast is still unknown. Some have suggested that the event resulted from a meteor slamming into the Earth’s surface. But no impact crater has ever been found. Other people have suggested that the meteor imploded in the sky above the forest. To this day, it is still the largest recorded impact event to strike the Earth. To this day, the explosion is still something of a mystery.
Thousands of scientific papers have attempted to get to the bottom of exactly what happened that day. W...

American Politics: In Our Times

by Philip Wik

Politics In Our Times is about the theory and the practice of politics.

It will give you insight into how the game of politics is played today, how and why politicians and parties win or lose, and how the machinery of power and partisanship works. This book can be read as a walk down memory lane, a how to guide for partisans, or a voter’s primer.

Politics touches all of us. It’s entertaining and solemn, frivolous and deadly, cynical and idealistic. Politics is a reflection of the best of us and the worst of us, our noblest ideals and our most reptilian instincts. It’s about the past and the future, high commerce and popular culture. It defines what makes us laugh, how we should live, and for what we are prepared to die.
