Early childhood is the apprenticeship of being human. The disproportionate influence of these early years lies in the fact that apprenticeship occurs constantly in children's most primary relationships during a period of unparalleled brain growth that has a lifelong impact on a child's character, competence, creativity, health and ability to collaborate.

This volume critically and constructively discusses philosophical questions which have particular bearing on the formulation of educational aims. The book is divided into three major parts: the first deals with the nature of education, and discusses the various general aims, such as 'mental health', 'socialization' and 'creativity' which have been thought to characterize it; the second section is concerned with the nature of reason and its relationship to feeling, will and action; finally the development of different aspects of reason in an educational context is considered.

Author: Mary Rose O'Reilley

Publisher: Milkweed Editions

Category: Biography & Autobiography

Page: 344

View: 5252

Deciding that her life was insufficiently grounded in real-world experience, Mary Rose O'Reilley, a Quaker reared as a Catholic, embarked on a year of tending sheep. In this often hilarious book, O'Reilley describes her work in an agricultural barn and her extended visit to a Buddhist monastery in France, where she studied with Thich N'hat Hanh. She seeks, in both barn and monastery, a spirituality based not in "climbing out of the body" but rather in existing fully in the world.

Mcelrath examines the journalistic contributions by the colorful & significant turn of the century writer, Frank Norris, during his formal literary apprenticeship. As he was writing his masterpiece, the still widely read & often studied, McTeague, he produced in 1896-1898 the short stories, articles & reviews gathered in these two volumes (bound in one). Norris's fiction, written while he was staff writer for the San Francisco Wave range from conventional love stories to gruesome descriptions of the impact of genetic & environmental determinism on his characters, & from light-hearted to decadent descents into "black humor" designed to outrage Victorian readers. His essays about literature define his relationships to the competing Romantic & Realistic traditions that influenced him as well as his loyalty to Zola's French school of writing. His stories are rich in descriptions of the San Francisco social scene, Darwinism, the emergence of the "New Woman," & new technologies of the early 20th century.

Advances in Human Aspects of Transportation: Part III

Author: Neville Stanton,Steven Landry,Giuseppe Di Bucchianico,Andrea Vallicelli

Publisher: AHFE Conference

ISBN: 1495120996


Page: 442

View: 4237

Human Factors and Ergonomics have made a considerable contribution to the research, design, development, operation and analysis of transportation systems which includes road and rail vehicles and their complementary infrastructure, aviation and maritime transportation. This book presents recent advances in the Human Factors aspects of Transportation. These advances include accident analysis, automation of vehicles, comfort, distraction of drivers (understanding of distraction and how to avoid it), environmental concerns, in-vehicle systems design, intelligent transport systems, methodological developments, new systems and technology, observational and case studies, safety, situation awareness, skill development and training, warnings and workload. This book brings together the most recent human factors work in the transportation domain, including empirical research, human performance and other types of modeling, analysis, and development. The issues facing engineers, scientists, and other practitioners of human factors in transportation research are becoming more challenging and more critical. The common theme across these sections is that they deal with the intersection of the human and the system. Moreover, many of the chapter topics cross section boundaries, for instance by focusing on function allocation in NextGen or on the safety benefits of a tower controller tool. This is in keeping with the systemic nature of the problems facing human factors experts in rail and road, aviation and maritime research– it is becoming increasingly important to view problems not as isolated issues that can be extracted from the system environment, but as embedded issues that can only be understood as a part of an overall system.

The Political Languages of Emancipation in the British Caribbean and the U.S. South

Author: Demetrius L. Eudell

Publisher: Univ of North Carolina Press

ISBN: 0807860123

Category: History

Page: 248

View: 2750

This comparative study examines the emancipation process in the British Caribbean, particularly Jamaica, during the 1830s and in the United States, particularly South Carolina, during the 1860s. Analyzing the intellectual and ideological foundations of postslavery Anglo-America, Demetrius Eudell explores how former slaves, former slaveholders, and their societies' central governments understood and discussed slavery, emancipation, and the transition between the two. Eudell investigates the public policies--which addressed issues of labor control, access to land, and the general social behaviors of former slaves--used to execute emancipation. In both regions, government-appointed officials (special magistrates in Jamaica and agents of the Freedmen's Bureau in South Carolina) were crucial in implementing these policies. While many former slaves were fighting for the right to be paid for their labor and to own land, many officials came to view their role as part of a new civilizing mission whose goal was to eradicate the psychic damage supposedly caused by slavery. Eudell concludes by examining the 1865 Morant Bay rebellion in Jamaica and the retreat from Reconstruction in South Carolina, part of the larger movement of Redemption that occurred in 1877. Both of these occurrences represented the incomplete victory of emancipation, Eudell argues, and should provoke scholarly questions regarding the persistent thesis of U.S. exceptionalism.

Richler Revealed Wickedly amusing and deceptively familiar, Mordecai Richler has been praised, reviled, and-many times-misunderstood.Intrigued by Richler's defiant denial that his personal history plays any part in his fiction, we unveil the life-altering events he semi-discloses. Amazed at his brazen plundering of past and present literary works, we watch as he reworks the stories and poems of other writers, for purposes of his own. Carefully researched and entertainingly presented, these revelations will forever alter the way you read Richler's novels, and think about his life.
