Annie has learned quite a bit about her new friend Gemma: she's from Bristol, she used to work in a pharmacy, and she's never forgiven herself for the suicide of her teenage son. She also died ten years ago and doesn't know why she's come back through that door. Perhaps it has something to do with the new road they're building through the rundown part of town. The plans are sparking protests, and Annie knows those derelict houses hold a secret in Gemma's past. Will stopping the demolition help Gemma be at peace again? Annie, George and Mitchell get involved in the road protest, but they're more concerned by mysterious deaths at the hospital. Deaths that have also attracted the attention of the new Hospital Administrator... Featuring Mitchell, George and Annie, as played by Aidan Turner, Russell Tovey and Lenora Crichlow in the hit series created by Toby Whithouse for BBC Television

The Search for Order

Publisher: Intellect Books

ISBN: 1841500259

Category: Religion

Page: 209

This feels like a time of environmental and moral crisis without parallel.... Not only do human beings seem not to believe in anything but, despite exponential advances in information production, we do not appear to know much either. This book is a guide for everyone who feels understandably perplexed. The book considers issues as diverse as: the lure of alternative religions and belief systems; the use of the rhetoric of economics to justify amoral decisionmaking; green politics and genetically-modified crops; new technology's power to preserve the status quo; and the true impetus behind the Human Genome Project. Presenting an explanation of recent findings in science and their relationship with society and politics, the book seeks to give guidance towards responsible political action. Starting from themes developed in the companion volume The Search for Mind, the author attempts to provide intellectual roots for the 'anti-capitalist' or 'anti-globalization' movement and, in particular, treats social protest as a form of knowledge-seeking. The author brings to very topical and controversial concerns some much-needed clarity. Complete with reader-friendly summaries of current thought in the biological, physical, and social sciences, this book is designed primarily for the popular market but will also appeal to those working or studying in these fields.

Ethics, Environment, and Our Place in the World

Author: Anna L. Peterson

Publisher: Univ of California Press

ISBN: 9780520926059

Category: Philosophy

Page: 298

View: 5448

Being Human examines the complex connections among conceptions of human nature, attitudes toward non-human nature, and ethics. Anna Peterson proposes an "ethical anthropology" that examines how ideas of nature and humanity are bound together in ways that shape the very foundations of cultures. Peterson discusses mainstream Western understandings of what it means to be human, as well as alternatives to these perspectives, and suggests that the construction of a compelling, coherent environmental ethics will revise our ideas not only about nature but also about what it means to be human.

A common project between American and European social psychologists the book seeks to build a bridge between research findings in both regions of the world. In doing so the interpretations of the research takes a critical stand toward dysfunction in modern societies, and in particular the consequences of endless war and repression. Including topics as varied as an overview of the theoretical domains of social psychology and recent research on morality, justice and the law, the book promises a stimulating introduction to contemporary views of what it means to be human. A major emphasis of the book is the effect of culture in all major topical areas of social psychology including conceptions of the self, attraction, relationships and love, social cognition, attitude formation and behavior, influences of group membership, social influence, persuasion, hostile images, aggression and altruism, and moral behavior.

On Being Human

An insightful look at alienation in the modern world from the New York Times–bestselling author of The Art of Loving and Escape from Freedom. Social psychologist Erich Fromm observed the spread of alienation in the 1960s, arguing that humans who were once dynamic, creative beings were reduced to fixating on TV screens, emotionally paralyzed by anxieties over threats like nuclear war. Though we may stare at different devices and worry about other dangers today, his insights are as useful as ever, and allow us to gain perspective on the human condition. A collection of his writings on “New Humanism” and the need to reclaim our happiness and peace of mind, this is a thoughtful, fascinating overview of the past that shaped us, and the philosophies and practices that can ensure a better future, both for ourselves and for the world at large. Included are reflections on thinkers from Karl Marx to medieval Catholic mystic Meister Eckhart, as “Fromm’s large, keen mind and attractive, likable voice [strive] for heart as he asks himself the hardest questions of his day” (Kirkus Reviews). This ebook features an illustrated biography of Erich Fromm including rare images and never-before-seen documents from the author’s estate.

Race, Culture, and Religion

Author: Dwight N. Hopkins

Dwight Hopkins, whose important work in Black Theology has mediated class theological concerns through the prism of African American culture, here offers a fresh take on theological anthropology. Rather than defined "the human" as one eternal or inviolable essence, however, Hopkins looks to the multiple and conflicting notions of the human in contemporary thought, and particularly three key variables: culture, self, and race. Hopkins' critical reframing of these concepts firmly locates human endeavor, development, transcendence, and liberation in the particular messiness of struggle and strife.

Humanismus als reale Utopie. Der Glaube an den Menschen

On Being Human

Author: Erich Fromm

Publisher: Open Publishing Rights GmbH

ISBN: 3959121148

Page: 112

View: 1667

Erich Fromm hat einen Großteil seiner Verwandten in den Vernichtungslagern der Nazis verloren. Als Psychologe analysiert er mit aller Klarsicht die entfremdenden und destruktiven Auswirkungen des am Markt orientierten Menschen. Wie kann er da noch an den Menschen glauben? Die Beiträge dieses Bandes geben eine Antwort auf diese Frage. Sie sprechen auch von den realen Möglichkeiten, die zum Glücken des Menschen führen können. Für Fromm gibt es so lange eine „reale“ Utopie, solange der Mensch wenigstens ansatzweise noch einen Zugang zu seinen wachstumsfördernden Eigenkräften hat. In diesem Wissen um eine humanistische Alternative fühlt sich Fromm mit Meister Eckhart und Karl Marx verbunden, die beide von „Haben oder Sein“ sprachen. Im letzten großen Beitrag dieses Bandes mit nachgelassenen Schriften wird ein Kapitel über Meister Eckhart und Karl Marx veröffentlicht, das Fromm im Zusammenhang mit seinem Buch ‚Haben oder Sein‘ verfasst hat, ohne es darin zu veröffentlichen. Aus dem Inhalt • Der moderne Mensch und seine Zukunft • Die psychischen Folgen des Industrialismus • Meine Kritik an der Industriegesellschaft • Die Überlebenschancen der westlichen Gesellschaft • Auf der Suche nach der humanistischen Alternative • Ein neuer Humanismus als Voraussetzung für die eine Welt • Die Idee einer Weltkonferenz • Wahlkampfrede für Eugene McCarthy beim „Versöhnungsbund“ • Aufruf zum gemeinsamen Kampf gegen den Götzendienst • Credo eines Humanisten • Bemerkungen zu den Beziehungen zwischen Juden und Deutschen • Meister Eckhart und Karl Marx: Die reale Utopie der Orientierung am Sein

¥ What does it mean to be human? ¥ How does a right understanding of personhood affect decisions on critical life situations? ¥ What implications does a biblical perspective on personhood have for the pastoral ministry of healing and hope? In answering these questions, Ray S. Anderson focused on the person as determined by and sustained by the creative power of God. He explored the the implications of a biblical understanding of personhood for such critical issues as human sexuality, family relationships, abortion, and death. He broke new ground in relating pastoral care and counseling to contemporary issues which challenge Christians and their understanding of the meaning of human life.
