English summary: Active philosophising, that is not limited by current states, but wants to keep the entire reality in its view has to rely on conversation with history. The antique era plays a major role in this, as the Greeks were the first to pose questions that occupy philosophers up to today. They pointed out approaches to resolution, the basic terms are their doing, thus the philosophy of the classical era is appropriate for an introduction to philosophical thinking. The work reaches from Pre-Socratic philosophy (600 B.C.) to the end of Neo-Platonism (600 AD). It emphasises on questions, terms and theses, which remain essential to modern philosophising. German description: Lebendiges Philosophieren, das nicht zeitbedingten Engfuhrungen erliegen, sondern die Fulle der Wirklichkeit im Blick behalten will, ist auf das Gesprach mit der Geschichte angewiesen. Dabei kommt der Antike eine besondere Bedeutung zu. Die Griechen haben als Erste die Fragen gestellt, welche die Philosophie bis heute beschaftigen. Sie haben grundsatzliche Losungsmoglichkeiten aufgezeigt. Die Grundbegriffe der Philosophie sind ihr Werk. Die Philosophie der Antike ist daher wie keine andere als Einfuhrung in das philosophische Denken geeignet.Die Darstellung umfasst den Zeitraum von den Vorsokratikern (6. Jh. v. Chr.) bis zum Ende des Neuplatonismus (6. Jh. n. Chr.). Herausgearbeitet werden besonders Fragestellungen, Begriffe und Thesen, die auch fur heutiges Philosophieren unverzichtbar sind. In der vollig uberarbeiteten Neuauflage wurde ein Kapitel uber Cicero hinzugefugt; die Kapitel uber Platon, Aristoteles und Plotin wurden erweitert. Die ausgewahlten Literaturhinweise informieren uber den neuesten Stand der Forschung.

Everyday Forms of Whiteness

Understanding Race in a 'Post-Racial' World

Author: Melanie E. L. Bush

Publisher: Rowman & Littlefield Publishers

Category: Social Science

Page: 330

The second edition of Melanie Bush's acclaimed Everyday Forms of Whiteness looks at the often-unseen ways racism impacts our lives. The author has interviewed and surveyed hundreds of college students and reveals that even though we talk as though we live in a "post-racial" world after the election of Barack Obama, racism is still very much a factor in everyday life. The second edition incorporates new data and interviews to show how the everyday thinking of ordinary people contributes to the perpetuation of systemic racialized inequality. The book introduces key terms for the study for race and ethnicity, reveals the mechanisms that support the racial hierarchy in U.S. society, then outlines ways we can challenge long-standing patterns of racial inequality.

Walk Together Children

Black and Womanist Theologies, Church and Theological Education

Walk Together Children: Black and Womanist Theologies, Church, and Theological Education draws on the long religious, cultural, and singing history of blacks in the U.S.A. Through the slavery and emancipation days until now, black song has both nurtured and enhanced African American life as a collective whole. Communality has always included a variety of existential experiences. What has kept this enduring people in a corporate process is their walking together through good times and bad, relying on what W. E. B. DuBois called their "dogged strength" to keep "from being torn asunder." Somehow and someway they intuited from historical memory or received from transcendental revelation that keeping on long enough on the road would yield ultimate fruit for the journey.

Counseling Persons of African Descent

Raising the Bar of Practitioner Competence

Publisher: SAGE Publications

ISBN: 1452262497

Though important strides have been made in the last three decades in the research efforts on African Americans, there continues to be a lack of significant new understanding about the impact of the African American culture on the therapy process and dynamics. This volume provides an in-depth analysis of the counseling literature pertaining to African American clients. Specifically, the analysis includes a review of the different variables (client, counselor, counseling process, and assessment) that have received the bulk of research attention. This sets the stage for the presentation of a counseling model for African American clients. The authors discuss philosophical premises upon which the model is based and suggest specific counseling strategies and interventions related to the model. Case study material is integrated throughout the chapters, focusing on individual and group approaches. This volume is an important work for counseling professionals as well as for students in social work and counseling programs.

The second wave of feminism was one of the most significant political and cultural developments of the 1960s and 1970s. Yet the role radical feminism played within the women's movement remains hotly contested. For some, radical feminism has made a lasting contribution to our understanding of male privilege, and the ways the power imbalance between men and women affects the everyday fabric of women's lives. For others, radical feminism represents a reflexive hostility toward men, sex, and heterosexuality, and thus is best ignored or forgotten. Rather than have the movement be interpreted by others, Radical Feminism permits the original work of radical feminists to speak for itself. Comprised of pivotal documents written by U.S. radical feminists in the 1960s and 1970s, Radical Feminism combines both unpublished and previously published manifestos, position papers, minutes of meetings, and newsletters essential to an understanding of radical feminism. Consisting of documents unavailable to the general public, and others in danger of being lost altogether, this panoramic collection is organized around the key issues of sex and sexuality, race, children, lesbianism, separatism, and class. Barbara A. Crow rescues the groundbreaking original work of such groups as The Furies, Redstockings, Cell 16, and the Women's Liberation Movement. Contributors include Kate Millet, Susan Brownmiller, Shulamith Firestone, Rosalyn Baxandall, Toni Morrison, Ellen Willis, Anne Koett, and Vivan Gornick. Gathered for the first time in one volume, these primary sources of radical feminism fill a major gap in the literature on feminism and feminist thought. Radical Feminism is an indispensable resource for future generations of feminists, scholars, and activists. "This valuable anthology may well change the way many of us view radical feminism." --Resources for Feminist Research, Winter/Spring 2001, Vol. 28, No. 3/4

Identifying Race and Transforming Whiteness in the Classroom

As educators, how do we challenge and interrupt the social construction of whiteness in ourselves, in the classroom, in schools, and in the wider society? Coming from diverse backgrounds, the contributors in this volume draw on their own well-examined experiences of race, racism, and whiteness in developing effective antiracist pedagogies and classroom activities that interrupt and contest whiteness. They have explored their own lives from the selective position of their own memories and have traced the ways in which their assumptions - which they use to mediate and interpret the world around them - have been constituted by public ideological forces. They have collaborated with others in building alternative pedagogies and support systems, enabling them to teach, and at the same time, reflect on the assumptions behind and the effects of their teaching. The result is the work collected here.

Every chapter is full of candid insights from reflective practitioners about the challenges and rewards of engaging in transformative learning. A must-read for adult educators everywhere!" —Sharan B. Merriam, professor emeritus of adult education, University of Georgia "Mezirow and Taylor's book deepens our understanding of a central idea in adult education—that meaningful learning for adults is often triggered by a transformative experience. Readers are provided a rich array of approaches which help them to understand and facilitate transformative learning in multiple settings. Together these practices build a toolkit for those who would support learning that transforms." —Karen E. Watkins, professor, human resource and organization development, Department of Lifelong Education, Administration, and Policy, University of Georgia "Methods to facilitate transformative learning bear intriguing similarities across varied places and spaces. This book breaks through silo thinking and is for educators across formal and informal settings who are concerned with individual or collective transformation, whether in the 'North' or 'South.'" —Shirley Walters, professor of adult and continuing education, University of Western Cape, South Africa
