War and Moral Injury by Robert Emmet Meagher,Douglas A. Pryer Summary

All royalties from the sale of this book are being donated to Warfighter Advance, Moral Injury has been called the “signature wound” of today’s wars. It is also as old as the human record of war, as evidenced in the ancient war epics of Greece, India, and the Middle East. But what exactly is Moral Injury? What are its causes and consequences? What can we do to prevent or limit its occurrence among those we send to war? And, above all, what can we do to help heal afflicted warriors? This landmark volume provides an invaluable resource for those looking for answers to these questions. Gathered here are some of the most far-ranging, authoritative, and accessible writings to date on the topic of Moral Injury. Contributors come from the fields of psychology, theology, philosophy, psychiatry, law, journalism, neuropsychiatry, classics, poetry, and, of course, the profession of arms. Their voices find common cause in informing the growing, international conversation on war and war’s deepest and most enduring invisible wound. Few may want to have this myth-challenging, truth-telling conversation, but it is one we must have if we truly wish to help those we send to fight our wars.

Life's Work by Dr. Willie Parker Summary

In this “vivid and companionable memoir of a remarkable life” (The New Yorker), an outspoken, Christian reproductive justice advocate and abortion provider reveals his personal and professional journeys in an effort to seize the moral high ground on the question of choice and reproductive justice. Dr. Willie Parker grew up in the Deep South, lived in a Christian household, and converted to an even more fundamentalist form of Christianity as a young man. But upon reading an interpretation of the Good Samaritan in a sermon by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., he realized that in order to be a true Christian, he must show compassion for all people at all times. In 2009, he stopped practicing obstetrics to focus entirely on providing safe abortions for women who need help the most—often women in poverty and women of color—in the hotbed of the pro-choice debate: the South. He thereafter traded in his private practice and his penthouse apartment in Hawaii for the life of an itinerant abortion provider, becoming one of the few doctors to provide such services in Mississippi and Alabama. In Life’s Work, Dr. Willie Parker tells a deeply personal and thought-provoking narrative that illuminates the complex societal, political, religious, and personal realities of abortion in the United States from the unique perspective of someone who performs them and defends the right to do so every day. In revealing his daily battle against mandatory waiting periods and bogus rules, Dr. Parker makes a powerful Christian case for championing reproductive rights. “At a moment when reproductive health and rights are under attack…Dr. Parker’s book is a beacon of hope and a call to action” (Cecile Richards, President of Planned Parenthood).

Learning for sustainability in times of accelerating change by Arjen E.J. Wals,Peter Blaze Corcoran Summary

We live in turbulent times, our world is changing at accelerating speed. Information is everywhere, but wisdom appears in short supply when trying to address key inter-related challenges of our time such as; runaway climate change, the loss of biodiversity, the depletion of natural resources, the on-going homogenization of culture, and rising inequity. Living in such times has implications for education and learning. This book explores the possibilities of designing and facilitating learning-based change and transitions towards sustainability. In 31 chapters contributors from across the world discuss (re)emerging forms of learning that not only assist in breaking down unsustainable routines, forms of governance, production and consumption, but also can help create ones that are more sustainable. The book has been divided into three parts: re-orienting science and society, re-connecting people and planet and re-imagining education and learning. This is essential reading for educators, educational designers, change agents, researchers, students, policymakers and entrepreneurs alike, who are concerned about the well-being of the planet and convinced of our ability to do better. The content and related issues can be discussed on the blog by editor Arjen Wals: Transformative learning. 'We are living in times of incertitude, complexity, and contestation, but also of connectivity, responsibility, and new opportunities. This book analyses the consequences of these times for learning in formal, non-formal, and informal education. It explores the possibilities offered by the concept of sustainability as a central category of a holistic paradigm which harmonizes human beings with Earth. To change people and to change the world are interdependent processes - this book contributes to both.' Moacir Gadotti, Director of Paulo Freire Institute, São Paulo, Brazil 'I hope you share my excitement about the innovations for sustainability that this book catalogues and analyses. While the ecological news is grim, the human news is not. Even in a time of accelerating change, people are showing their enormous capacities to learn, adapt, restore and protect.' From the Foreword by Juliet Schor, author of ‘True Wealth: how and why millions of Americans are creating a time-rich, ecologically-light, small-scale high-satisfaction economy’ 'This book implies a ‘culture of critical commitment’ in educational thinking and practice - engaged enough to make a real difference to social-ecological resilience and sustainability but reflexively critical enough to learn constantly from experience and to keep options open in working for a sustainability transformation.' From the Afterword by Stephen Sterling, Professor of Sustainability Education, Centre for Sustainable Futures, Plymouth University, United Kingdom

Social Media in Rural China by Tom McDonald Summary

China’s distinctive social media platforms have gained notable popularity among the nation’s vast number of internet users, but has China’s countryside been ‘left behind’ in this communication revolution? Tom McDonald spent 15 months living in a small rural Chinese community researching how the residents use social media in their daily lives. His ethnographic findings suggest that, far from being left behind, many rural Chinese people have already integrated social media into their everyday experience.Throughout his ground-breaking study, McDonald argues that social media allows rural people to extend and transform their social relationships by deepening already existing connections with friends known through their school, work or village, while also experimenting with completely new forms of relationships through online interactions with strangers, particularly when looking for love and romance. By juxtaposing these seemingly opposed relations, rural social media users are able to use these technologies to understand, capitalise on and challenge the notions of morality that underlie rural life.

Social inequality and public health by Babones, Salvatore J. Summary

Public health in the early 21st century increasingly considers how social inequalities impact on individual health, moving away from the focus on how disease relates to the individual person. This 'new public health' identifies how social, economic and political factors affect the level and distribution of individual health, through their effects on individual behaviours, the social groups people belong to, the character of relationships to others and the characteristics of the societies in which people live. The rising social inequalities that can be seen in nearly every country in the world today present not just a moral danger, but a mortal danger as well. Social inequality and public health brings together the latest research findings from some of the most respected medical and social scientists in the world. It surveys four pathways to understanding the social determinants of health: differences in individual health behaviours; group advantage and disadvantage; psychosocial factors in individual health; and healthy and unhealthy societies, shedding light on the costs and consequences of today's high-inequality social models. This exciting book brings together leaders in the field discussing their latest research and is a must-read for anyone interested in public health and social inequalities internationally.

Privatising Peace by M. Patterson Summary

The history of United Nations peacekeeping is largely one of failure. This book puts a case for augmenting ad hoc peacekeepers with competent contract labour; and within the constraints of a new legal regime, supporting future operations with well-trained contractors who might subdue by force those who inflict gross human rights abuses on others.

Why Not Capitalism? by Jason F. Brennan Summary

Most economists believe capitalism is a compromise with selfish human nature. As Adam Smith put it, "It is not from the benevolence of the butcher, the brewer, or the baker, that we expect our dinner, but from their regard to their own interest." Capitalism works better than socialism, according to this thinking, only because we are not kind and generous enough to make socialism work. If we were saints, we would be socialists. In Why Not Capitalism?, Jason Brennan attacks this widely held belief, arguing that capitalism would remain the best system even if we were morally perfect. Even in an ideal world, private property and free markets would be the best way to promote mutual cooperation, social justice, harmony, and prosperity. Socialists seek to capture the moral high ground by showing that ideal socialism is morally superior to realistic capitalism. But, Brennan responds, ideal capitalism is superior to ideal socialism, and so capitalism beats socialism at every level. Clearly, engagingly, and at times provocatively written, Why Not Capitalism? will cause readers of all political persuasions to re-evaluate where they stand vis-à-vis economic priorities and systems—as they exist now and as they might be improved in the future.

Éthique à Nicomaque by Aristote Summary

Texte intégral révisé suivi d'une biographie d'Aristote. L'"Éthique à Nicomaque", composé de dix livres, est l'un des principaux ouvrages exposant la philosophie morale d'Aristote, laquelle demeure en substance la plus significative expression de la morale grecque. Nicomaque, fils d'Aristote, lui donne son nom en tant que premier éditeur des manuscrits. Critiquant la conception platonicienne des Idées, qui préconise le "bien en soi", Aristote traite ici de ce qui doit selon lui guider l'homme dans toutes ses actions, à savoir le bonheur, sens ultime de la vie humaine. Le bonheur, dit-il, est l'exercice de cette activité propre à l'homme qu'est l'usage du "logos" (la raison, l'intelligence), mais sans toutefois exclure la jouissance des plaisirs sensibles. Sur cette base, il développe une théorie des vertus humaines qu'il divise en vertus dianoétiques, relevant de la partie intellectuelle de l'âme, et vertus éthiques, relevant plus du caractère et des sentiments. La vertu aristotélicienne, caractérisée par un juste milieu entre les passions et facultés opposées de l'âme, concilie ainsi tout à la fois des exigences spiritualistes et eudémonistes. Le philosophe considère aussi la vertu comme un fait composé de deux éléments: l'un volontaire, déterminant le but, l'autre intellectuel, donnant les moyens pour atteindre ce but. Le livre 3 est consacré à définir ce qu'il y a de volontaire et d'involontaire dans l'action de l'homme, rejetant la thèse selon laquelle "personne n'est volontairement mauvais" et concluant que la vertu comme le vice résident en notre seul pouvoir. Dans les livres 4, 5 et 6, il décrit des vertus éthiques particulières comme la douceur, la franchise, l'urbanité, la pudeur, le courage, etc., examinant particulièrement la justice et l'équité, puis étudie les vertus dianoéthiques, au nombre de cinq: la science, l'art, la prudence, l'intellect et la sagesse. Le livre 7 traite de l'intempérance et du plaisir, les livres 8 et 9 de l'amitié et de l'amour, désignés sous le même nom. Le livre 10 reprend enfin le problème du rapport entre le plaisir et la vertu, et conclut que le plaisir procède d'une perfection de l'acte, survenant "comme la beauté pour qui est dans la fleur de l'âge". Le bonheur suprême réside dans la pure contemplation de la vérité éternelle. L'"Éthique à Nicomaque" est une continuelle oscillation entre l'eudémonisme humaniste et l'intellectualisme éthique.

The Public on the Public by C. Westall,M. Gardiner Summary

In Britain, the resistance to popular determination allowed by the financial construct of the public has been so successful that this term, public, must be re-read as politically paralyzing. The problem, our problem, is the public - which we are so often told will bring us together and provide for us - and it is this we must move beyond.

European Law and New Health Technologies by Mark L Flear,Anne-Maree Farrell,Tamara K Hervey,Thérèse Murphy Summary

Health is a matter of fundamental importance in European societies, both as a human right in itself, and as a factor in a productive workforce and therefore a healthy economy. New health technologies promise improved quality of life for patients suffering from a range of diseases, and the potential for the prevention of incidence of disease in the future. At the same time, new health technologies pose significant challenges for governments, particularly in relation to ensuring the technologies are safe, effective, and provide appropriate value for (public) money. To guard against the possible dangers arising from new health technologies, and to maximize the benefits, all European governments regulate their development, marketing, and public financing. In addition, several international institutions operating at European level, in particular the European Union, the Council of Europe, and the European Patent Office, have become involved in the regulation of new health technologies. They have done so both through traditional 'command and control' legal measures, and through other regulatory mechanisms, including guidelines, soft law, 'steering' through redistribution of resources, and private or quasi-private regulation. This collection analyses European law and its relationships with new health technologies. It uses interdisciplinary insights, particularly from law but also drawing on regulation theory, and science and technology studies, to shed new light on some of the key defining features of the relationships and especially the roles of risk, rights, ethics, and markets. The collection explores the way in which European law's engagement with new health technologies is to be legitimized, and discusses the implications for biological or biomedical citizenship.

Digital Anthropology by Heather A. Horst,Daniel Miller Summary

Anthropology has two main tasks: to understand what it is to be human and to examine how humanity is manifested differently in the diversity of culture. These tasks have gained new impetus from the extraordinary rise of the digital. This book brings together several key anthropologists working with digital culture to demonstrate just how productive an anthropological approach to the digital has already become. Through a range of case studies from Facebook to Second Life to Google Earth, Digital Anthropology explores how human and digital can be defined in relation to one another, from avatars and disability; cultural differences in how we use social networking sites or practise religion; the practical consequences of the digital for politics, museums, design, space and development to new online world and gaming communities. The book also explores the moral universe of the digital, from new anxieties to open-source ideals. Digital Anthropology reveals how only the intense scrutiny of ethnography can overturn assumptions about the impact of digital culture and reveal its profound consequences for everyday life. Combining the clarity of a textbook with an engaging style which conveys a passion for these new frontiers of enquiry, this book is essential reading for students and scholars of anthropology, media studies, communication studies, cultural studies and sociology.

Drop the Pink Elephant by Bill McFarlan Summary

"As GMTV anchor, I interview hundreds of people every year. However well they interview, every single person would find it easier to explain their case by following these simple principles." EAMONN HOLMES, GMTV Presenter "[Drop the Pink Elephant]...tackle[s] every aspect of personal communication in a crisp, entertaining style." THE PLAIN ENGLISH SOCIETY "There can be no whitewash at the White House." (Richard Nixon). These nine words turned the American nation against their President. Why? Because people hadn't linked the White House with a cover up until Nixon himself made the connection. His own denial created the story. It is perhaps the most famous Pink Elephant in history. But what exactly is a 'Pink Elephant'? Pink Elephants are the unnecessary negatives that clutter your conversation and meaning, sending out the wrong signals to anyone you communicate with. In Drop the Pink Elephant, Bill McFarlan reveals how to avoid the deadly trap of allowing poor communication skills to obscure your meaning and reduce your effectiveness. Drop the Pink Elephant is filled with helpful, simple and practical advice on how to make your words count for more. Put these straightforward lessons into practice and you will notice immediately how much more effectively you are able to communicate with others. Sharpen your conversation by: * FIRST SPOTTING, THEN DROPPING THE PINK ELEPHANT * GETTING RID OF THE JARGON * LEARNING TO SPEAK IN PICTURES * RECOGNISING WHEN YOU SHOULD APOLOGISE OR THANK PEOPLE * CAPTIVATING AN AUDIENCE N.B.

Le comte de Monte-Cristo I by Alexandre Dumas Summary

Edmond Dantès, victime d'une dénonciation calomnieuse alors qu'il allait épouser la belle Mercédès, est enfermé pour 14 ans dans un sinistre cachot du château d'If en rade de Marseille. Son salut viendra de l'abbé Faria, un autre prisonnier avec lequel il entretient une amitié clandestine des années durant. Celui-ci lui transmet sa vaste culture et à sa mort, un trésor caché... Extrait : « Je ne tirerai rien de ces niais-là, murmura-t-il, et j'ai grand-peur d'être ici entre un ivrogne et un poltron : voici un envieux qui se grise avec du vin, tandis qu'il devrait s'enivrer de fiel ; voici un grand imbécile à qui on vient de prendre sa maîtresse sous son nez et qui se contente de pleurer et de se plaindre comme un enfant. Et cependant, cela vous a des yeux flamboyants comme ces Espagnols, ces Siciliens et ces Calabrais, qui se vengent si bien ; cela vous a des poings à écraser une tête de bœuf aussi sûrement que le ferait la masse d'un boucher. Décidément, le destin d'Edmond l'emporte ; il épousera la belle fille, il sera capitaine et se moquera de nous ; à moins que

Par-delà le bien et le mal by Friedrich Nietzsche Summary

Edition enrichie (introduction, notes, chronologie et bibliographie) Le problème de la valeur du vrai s'est présenté à nous, - ou bien est-ce nous qui nous sommes présentés à ce problème ? Qui de nous ici est Oedipe ? Qui la Sphinx ? C'est, comme il semble, un véritable rendez-vous de problèmes et de questions. - Et, le croirait-on ? Il me semble, en fin de compte, que le problème n'a jamais été posé jusqu'ici, que nous avons été les premiers à l'apercevoir, à l'envisager, à prendre le risque de le traiter. Car il y a des risques à courir, et peut-être n'en est-il pas de plus grands. Friedrich Nietzsche. C'est d'abord à une radicale remise en question de la vérité que procède Nietzsche dans Par-delà le bien et le mal (1886). Ce texte d'une écriture étincelante, férocement critique, met en effet au jour, comme un problème majeur jusque-là occulté, inaperçu, celui de la valeur. Il y destitue les positions philosophiques passées et présentes (autant de croyances), et stigmatise, en les analysant un à un, l'ensemble des préjugés moraux qui sous-tendent notre civilisation. L'entreprise, pourtant, n'est pas uniquement négative : elle débouche sur l'annonce, dans le prolongement d'Ainsi parlait Zarathoustra, de « nouveaux philosophes » - « philosophes d'un dangereux peut-être » qui devront désormais assumer l'inflexible hypothèse de la vie comme « volonté de puissance ». Traduction de Henri Albert, revue par Marc Sautet. Présentation et notes de Marc Sautet. Index établi par Véronique Brière - Nouvelle édition.
