In Her Words

This work examines young women’s decision-making experiences related to Human Papillomavirus (HPV) vaccination. Using a narrative research approach, five young women were asked to share their stories of how they came to be or not be vaccinated. Participant narratives reveal a number of themes that capture the diversity of young women’s experiences and point to the complex ways in which individuals often negotiate decisions regarding vaccination. In her work, the author takes a critical stance on the topic of HPV vaccine decision-making in order to illuminate how young women’s decisions are embedded within broader social and discursive contexts. This critical approach to understanding participant narratives is informed by a strong sensitivity to conceptual frames of medicalization, healthism, and neo-medicalization and dominant discourses related to health risk and individual responsibility.

The Right of Revolution

4839 руб.
The right of revolution in the social contract theories of Thomas Hobbes and John Locke is a curious topic. This paper discusses the differences and similarities between the two philosophers’ discussions of this topic. It is argued that Hobbes and Locke differ most drastically on the notion of who the sovereign is. While Hobbes prefers to establish the sovereign as a demigod, Locke understands the sovereign as a mortal, and thus fallible, man. It is because of this distinction that Hobbes and Locke disagree on the notion of the right of revolution. Furthermore, the American Founding Fathers, including James Madison and Thomas Jefferson, inherited Locke’s perspective on this matter when arguing for the independence of the colonies. Finally, it is the conclusion of this paper that this notion of the right of revolution continues today, when observing the numerous political revolutions around the world.

3474 руб.
A History of Modern Political Thought analyzes the ways of interpreting modern political thought and interpretations of particular modern political thinkers. It analyses prominent schemes of interpretation such as deconstruction, hermeneutics and contextualism and provides a critical reading of how particular thinkers including Machiavelli, Hobbes, Locke, Hegel, Rousseau, Marx, Bentham, Mill, Nietzsche, and Beauvoir are interpreted in the light of these schemes. The book addresses the question of why there are so many reinterpretations of political thinkers and how we can understand past thinkers. It concludes by developing an interpretive pluralism which recognises the merits of several schemes of interpretation, while furnishing a critical overview which maintains a dialectical perspective that provides an integral overview of the subject.

While Phillip Pullman's "His Dark Materials" Trilogy is aimed at young readers, the three texts construct a dynamic and complicated world that forces readers to confront and question ofter overlooked questions of ethics. Breaking with the canonical norms and patterns of Children's and Young Adult Literature, Pullman's three novels open new perspectives on the very possibility of thinking ethically in the contemporary political moment. This book aims to trace Pullman's critiques of the theological tradition and articulated alternative modes of imagining subjectivity and ethics. Drawing on the work post-structuralist thinkers and literary critics, this work finds a stunning connection with Pullman's radical imaginary. Literary critics yearning for a more sustained relationship between Children and Young Adult fiction and critical theory should find this work useful to illustrate the depths to which this connection can be mined.

Bernard Gert Hobbes

4374.16 руб.
Thomas Hobbes was the first great English political philosopher. His work excited intense controversy among his contemporaries and continues to do so in our own time. In this masterly introduction to his work, Bernard Gert provides the first account of Hobbes’s political and moral philosophy that makes it clear why he is regarded as one of the best philosophers of all time in both of these fields. In a succinct and engaging analysis the book illustrates that the commonly accepted view of Hobbes as holding psychological egoism is not only incompatible with his account of human nature but is also incompatible with the moral and political theories that he puts forward. It also explains why Hobbes’s contemporaries did not accept his explicit claim to be providing a natural law account of morality. Gert shows that for Hobbes, civil society is established by a free-gift of their right of nature by the citizens; it does not involve a mutual contract between citizens and sovereign. As injustice involves breaking a contract, the sovereign cannot be unjust; however, the sovereign can be guilty of ingratitude, which is immoral. This distinction between injustice and immorality is part of a sophisticated and nuanced political theory that is in stark contrast to the reading often incorrectly attributed to Hobbes that “might makes right”. It illustrates how Hobbes’s goal of avoiding civil war provides the key to understanding his moral and political philosophy. Hobbes: Prince of Peace is likely to become the classic introduction to the work of Thomas Hobbes and will be a valuable resource for scholars and students seeking to understand the importance and relevance of his work today.

Developmentality

This work draws on a wide range of postcolonial and critical development scholars to construct a critical theoretical framework and to provide productive lens through which to make sense of the changing language, content and practice of Western aid interventions in Africa and other postcolonial societies, and to reveal continuities and discontinuities in the global architecture of aid. In particular, the study locates recent discourses on development and poverty reduction within the broader historical continuum of power inequalities in relation to international development cooperation and global governance generally. Mawuko-Yevugah argues that the new multilateral poverty reduction framework does not represent a rupture in Western discourses, policies, representations in Africa and other postcolonial settings and that, conceptions such as civil society, partnership, ownership or participation in the poverty reduction discourse produces new technologies of governance where a IFIs- elites consensus legitimizes the neoliberal hegemonic agenda.

The Iliad

The product of more than a decade's continuous work (1598-1611), Chapman's translation of Homer's great poem of war is a magnificent testimony to the power of "The Iliad". In muscular, onward-rolling verse Chapman retells the story of Achilles, the great warrior, and his terrible wrath before the walls of besieged Troy, and the destruction it wreaks on both Greeks and Trojans. Chapman regarded the translation of this epic, and of Homer's Odyssey (also available in Wordsworth Editions) as his life's work, and dedicated himself to capturing the "soul" of the poem. Swinburne praised the resulting translation for its "romantic and sometimes barbaric grandeur, its freshness, strength, and inexhaustible fire", qualities that reflect the grandeur, fire and brutality of the original poem. This new edition includes a critical introduction and extensive notes, rendering Chapman’s extraordinary poetic masterpiece accessible to modern readers.

Virginia Woolf - Mrs Dalloway

Virginia Woolf's Mrs Dalloway (1925) has long been recognised as one of her outstanding achievements and one of the canonical works of modernist fiction. Each generation of readers has found something new within its pages, which is reflected in its varying critical reception over the last ninety years. As the novel concerns itself with women's place in society, war and madness, it was naturally interpreted differently in the ages of second wave feminism, the Vietnam War and the anti-psychiatry movement. This has, of course, created a rather daunting number of different readings. Michael H. Whitworth contextualizes the most important critical work and draws attention to the distinctive discourses of critical schools, noting their endurance and interplay. Whitworth also examines how adaptations, such as Michael Cunningham's The Hours, can act as critical works in themselves, creating an invaluable guide to Mrs Dalloway.

In this book, S. A. Lloyd provides a radical interpretation of Hobbes' laws of nature, revealing them to be not egoistic precepts of personal prudence but rather moral instructions for obtaining the common good. This account of Hobbes' moral philosophy stands in contrast to both divine command and rational choice interpretations. Drawing from the core notion of reciprocity, Lloyd explains Hobbes' system of 'cases in the law of nature' and situates Hobbes' moral philosophy in the broader context of his political philosophy and views on religion. Offering ingenious new arguments, Lloyd defends a reciprocity interpretation of the laws of nature through which humanity's common good is secured.

Toward an Ethics of the Political

5090 руб.
In this interdisciplinary work of Critical Theory, Philosophy and Art Practice, Frederick Young, closely and boldly exams current notions of Ethics as articulated by the French philosopher, Immanuel Levinas, as a place to question para-philosophcial and para-academic notions of animality, and conceptual art in order to re-think our notions of the political. Young provides a close reading of the French philosopher, Jean-Luc Nancy, to ex-pose a new relation of "being-with" (mitsein) without the "being." Nancy's challenge to ontology opens up critical questions for Young regarding the notion of a city (or polis), which, in turn, becomes a radical reconfiguration of '"the political." Although not explicitly stated, Young seeks to engage with Walter Benjamin's haunting question of what a 'politics of art" might look like, or perhaps, more precisely, how a "politics of art" might, by means of transformative critique, produce inhuman materialities of a new concept of the political--a radical ethical turn without ontology, fundamental or otherwise. In the final chapters, Young turns to film and the controversial conceptual art collective Neue Slowenische Kunst, to suggest art practice.

Christmas as Religion

This work develops critical links between modern representations of Christmas and the category of religion. It questions the prevailing view that the celebration of secular and consumerist values is evidence of a decline of religious significance in the modern world, instead suggesting the celebration of consumerism is itself a repository of 'sacred time' and that Christmas is one of the most fertile embodiments of religious activity in the world today.

"Modern Love and Poems of the English Roadside" occupies a distinctive and somewhat notorious place within George Meredith's already unique body of work. Modern Love is now best known for the emotionally intense sonnet cycle which Meredith's own contemporaries dismissed as scandalously confessional and indiscreet. While individual sonnets from the work have been anthologized, the complete cycle is rarely included and the original edition has not been reprinted since its first appearance in 1862. This edition restores the original publication and supplements it with a range of accompanying materials that will re-introduce Meredith's astonishing collection of poetry to a new generation of readers.

The purpose of this critical feminist poststructural study was to understand the sociocultural and political influences that contribute to the construction of sexuality in several young Saskatchewan women. This study attempted to increase the understanding of how peers, family, and the media contribute to the ways in which young women simultaneously construct their subjectivities and their sexualities. Techniques of narrative inquiry as well as Foucauldian discourse analysis (FDA) were used to analyze 10 interviews to understand the discourses that construct gender and sexuality. The findings show that young women are bombarded with hypersexualized images and conflicting messages from peers, media and family. The social, cultural, and political discourses that are available to young women result in discourses in which young women construct their sexuality in response to the heteronormativity of the male gaze. The young women in this study had difficulty articulating a definition of sexuality and even more difficulty describing their own sexuality.

Critical Thinking and Nursing Education

Critical thinking is a crucial component of the process of preparing future nurses. Yet their preparation heavily relies on the potentials of the educators. It is therefore essential to ensure that the educators enjoy knowledge and skills that qualify them to promote critical thinking among students. This book examines the critical thinking experience of nurse educators working in Jordanian Universities. A survey questionnaire consisting three parts was used in this study; the California Critical thinking Skill Test (CCTST), the California Critical Thinking Disposition Inventory (CCTDI), and the experience survey (ES). The CCTST measured critical thinking skills and the ES asked the participants to rate their practice of critical thinking. The ES included a qualitative component that invited nurse educators to describe a situation, which illustrated their experience of critical thinking in practice. The CCTDI measured disposition towards critical thinking.

In the world of work people are the main source of organizational survival and success. Effective management of people based on the nature of the organization can have a significant effect on the satisfaction of staff, their level of performance and retaining of works. Three variables i.e. job satisfaction, work motivation and organizational commitment are critical to retaining and attracting well qualified personnel. Concerns about employees’ job satisfaction, work motivation and organizational commitment are just as, even more, critical in knowledge based sectors. These factors are especially important in professionalized and service – based organizations such as higher education institutions. By and large, this work gives a testimony of these facts.

Traditional ways of working with children and young people are giving way to new practices. Where practice solutions previously tended to be imposed on children and young people, professionals are now looking to engage them as vital partners in actively negotiated and co-constructed models of working.Combining social ecological and social constructionist perspectives drawn from a range of academic and practice disciplines, Working with Children and Young People explores and interrogates how ideas about childhood, policy and professional discourses change over time and, in turn, affect the issues faced by children, young people and their families. In particular, this important text:? develops a critical and reflective approach to knowledge and practice explored vividly across a wide range of practice settings? presents a new vision, where the focus is centrally on the child or young person and where dominant ideas are challenged? explores how key concerns, such as professional power and children's rights, embed themselves in working relationships.Working with Children and Young People provides an innovative critical framework for all students on vocational and professional courses involving work with children and young people. It also offers illuminating reading for practitioners working with the 0–18 age group, whether in the statutory, voluntary or private sectors.

The author’s ethnography poses and answers three questions:- How useful might discursive positioning be as a perspective on learning? What are the discourses at Wild Country Hall and how are they different to schooling discourses? How might neo-Liberal discursive practices, including performativity and current schooling orthodoxies have affected the pedagogic practices at this centre? A number of over-arching discourses (place, the appreciation, care of and respect for nature, the sense of awe and wonder, understanding and protecting the environment, risk, challenge and adventure; and consequent confidence and resilience building by children through facing and over-coming their fears) dominate the life of Wild Country Hall. The author proposes that introducing young people to these discourses allows a re-positioning of personal identity – which may be regarded as learning. Conversely, some pedagogic practices were found to valorise what may be described as ‘classroom discourses’, and have tended to formalise learning at the centre. This may be narrowing the range of discourses available, possibly to the detriment of children’s learning.

Don't move! You're surrounded by armed bastards!' Viewers of Life on Mars could be forgiven for thinking that the police force of the 1970s lived by the maxim 'The rules are: there are no rules', yet it turns out that this was not the case. A fascinating historical document has now emerged which shows that there were indeed rules and in 1973 they were recorded on paper by none other than DCI Gene Hunt himself. Divided into ten sections, The Rules of Modern Policing - 1973 Edition covers everything from interrogating suspects and undercover operations to driving and dress code. Several of the rules are illustrated with diagrams, and photographs of DCI Hunt himself illustrate the more physical parts of the job: how to hit suspects so you don't leave a mark; how to signal the importance of your arrival by crashing into inanimate objects (cardboard boxes are a perfect example here - lots of noise; no damage to your motor); how to roll over the bonnet of your cortina without making a dick of yourself. Completing the book is an invaluable glossary of police terms, covering everything from blag to lag, and nonce to ponce. An essential reference work for fans of Life of Mars, The Rules of Modern Policing offers a unique insight to seventies' law enforcement that will make you laugh until you cry like the wet little turd you are.

This research focuses on how teacher professional learning can support the work of social justice and equity. The study challenges the ongoing predominance of technical professional learning and highlights how some of the dominant discourses prevalent in current educational practice can work against diversity, innovation and progressive social change. The findings show how crucial dialectical debate, critical inquiry and disruption are in the change process and how if one is to realise an emancipatory educational vision, it is necessary to disrupt and re-imagine many of the taken-for-granted discourses and practices that dominate teaching today. This work provides provocations for those thinking about how to bring a transformative lens into teacher professional learning and everyday classroom practice.

Aiming to reach a state of reconciliation rather than conflict, this book explores areas of overlapping drama between East and West. Breaking new ground in modern world literature and cultural studies by critically investigating common areas of interest which link writers from three different locations, the book probes trans-cultural trajectories and narratives of hegemony rooted in contemporary Arabic, African and American literary production. Confronting totalitarian policies advocated by world-wide repressive agencies and intervening in discourses of Diaspora, exile and identity, the book provides a critical / analytical framework through which the socio-political literature of major American, African and Arabic figures is filtered, in terms of textual politics and structural techniques, in order to open new horizons in the field of comparative literature and pave the way for new research landscapes in contemporary cultural studies.

Provides a detailed map of contemporary critical theory in Renaissance and Early Modern English literary studies beyond Shakespeare A Handbook of English Renaissance Literary Studies is a groundbreaking guide to the contemporary engagement with critical theory within the larger disciplinary area of Renaissance and Early Modern studies. Comprising commissioned contributions from leading international scholars, it provides an overview of literary theory, beyond Shakespeare, focusing on most major figures, as well as some lesser-known writers of the period. This book represents an important first step in bridging the divide between the abundance of titles which explore applications of theory in Shakespeare studies, and the relative lack of such texts concerning English Literary Renaissance studies as a whole, which includes major figures such as Marlowe, Jonson, Donne, and Milton. The tripartite structure offers a map of the critical landscape so that students can appreciate the breadth of the work being done, along with an exploration of the ways in which the treatments of or approaches to key issues have changed over time. Handbook of English Renaissance Literary Studies is must-reading for undergraduate and postgraduate students of early modern and Renaissance English literature, as well as their instructors and advisors. Divided into three main sections, “Conditions of Subjectivity,” “Spaces, Places, and Forms,” and “Practices and Theories,” A Handbook of English Renaissance Literary Studies: Provides an overview of theoretical work and the theoretical-informed competencies which are central to the teaching of English Renaissance literary studies beyond Shakespeare Provides a map of the critical landscape of the field to provide students with an opportunity to appreciate the breadth of the work done Features newly-commissioned essays in representative subject areas to offer a clear picture of the contemporary theoretically-engaged work in the field Explores the ways in which the treatments of or approaches to key issues have changed over time Offers examples of the ways in which the practice of a theoretically-engaged criticism may enrich the personal and professional lives of critics, and the culture in which such critical practice takes place
