A Believing Atheist: The God Illusion

by Edward Sperling

Cosmotech is indeed the jam of jams. or we can call it speculative philosophy, either way. if you take land and girard and smash them together you get whitehead and process philosophy, which is based clean out of the game. and so long as i am bent sideways thinking about this stuff i’ll be coming back to share my demented rambles with you guys. a blessing and a curse! and sometimes taking a pause that refreshes can be a necessary moment of zen also.

Life after deleuze is just different than life before him. what i would really like to do is basically dream into existence a *positive* version of land – a sort of steven pinker version of him, if you will. capital is the precondition to everything we do today, but there’s a need for a fundamental shift in perspective. for one thing, critique of ideology has to become a question about *virtue.* i would like to think that, in a sense, a good project for a therapeutic philosophy could very well be the transformation of tragic circuits of suffering into positive circuits of forgiveness and enlightenment. needless to say this is a project i am expecting to see completed anytime soon! but a man can dream.



Las vertientes de la complejidad. Pensamiento sistémico,
ciencias de la complejidad, pensamiento complejo, paradigma ecológico y enfoques holistas (Alternativas al desarrollo) (Spanish Edition)

by Enrique Manuel Luengo González

Nos encontramos ante una revolución que pone en entredicho la manera en que entendemos la realidad. Esta revolución parte de que ante la complejidad del mundo actual ya no es posible una visión única para explicarlo, por lo que las distintas ciencias y disciplinas se ven obligadas a trabajar juntas, para avanzar hacia un conocimiento mejor articulado.
Multi, inter y transdisciplina se denomina a estas alternativas en la forma de pensar, las que hacen uso de nuevos lenguajes y métodos, formas de organización y de investigación, y que se les conoce, entre otras nomenclaturas, como “paradigma de complejidad”. Dado que se trata de un concepto en construcción, desde un diálogo abierto y propositivo en este libro se analizan las principales convergencias y divergencias de las distintas vertientes teórico-metodológicas en la materia, así como el modo en que estas pueden coadyuvar al desarrollo integral del paradigma de la complejidad, como una nueva alternativa de pensar y conocer la realidad para comprender mejor al mundo moderno y las sociedades que lo componen.
El autor aporta este un esfuerzo innovador que funciona como una introducción inteligente y creativa a la problemática de este modelo de conocimiento para todo aquel que tenga interés en aventurarse en este campo del saber.



Housing Estates in Europe: Poverty, Ethnic Segregation and Policy Challenges (The Urban Book Series)

by Daniel Baldwin Hess

This open access book explores the formation and socio-spatial trajectories of large housing estates in Europe. Are these estates clustered or scattered? Which social groups originally had access to residential space in housing estates? What is the size, scale and geography of housing estates, their architectural and built environment composition, services and neighbourhood amenities, and metropolitan connectivity? How do housing estates contribute to the urban mosaic of neighborhoods by ethnic and socio-economic status? What types of policies and planning initiatives have been implemented in order to prevent the social downgrading of housing estates?
The collection of chapters in this book addresses these questions from a new perspective previously unexplored in scholarly literature. The social aspects of housing estates are thoroughly investigated (including socio-demographic and economic characteristics of current and past inhabitants; ethnicity and segregation patterns; population dynamics; etc.), and the physical composition of housing estates is described in significant detail (including building materials; building form; architectural and landscape design; built environment characteristics; etc.). This book is timely because the recent global economic crisis and Europe’s immigration crisis demand a thorough investigation of the role large housing estates play in poverty and ethnic concentration. Through case studies of housing estates in 14 European centers, the book also identifies policy measures that have been used to address challenges in housing estates throughout Europe.



Peer Review, Peer Education, and Modeling in the Practice of Clinical Ethics Consultation: The Zadeh Project

by Stuart G. Finder

This open access book about the Zadeh Project demonstrates and explores a core question in clinical ethics: how can ethics consultants be accountable in the face of a robust plurality of ethical standpoints, especially those that underwrite practices and methods for doing ethics consultation as well as those viewpoints and values encountered in daily clinical ethics practice? Underscoring this question is the recognition that the field of clinical ethics consultation has arrived at a crucial point in its maturation. Many efforts are underway to more formally “professionalize” the field, with most aimed toward stabilizing a specific set of institutional considerations. Stretched between these institutional and practical initiatives resides a crucial set of of ethical considerations, chief among them the meaning and scope of responsibility for clinical ethics consultants. Developed around a long-form case scenario, the Zadeh Project provides a multi-layered series of “peer-reviews”: critique of the actions of the case scenario’s ethics consultant; reflection on clinical ethics method; examination of the many ways that commitments to method and practice can, and do, intersect, overlap, and alter one another. The design and format of this book thus models a key element for clinical ethics practice: the need and ability to provide careful and thoughtful explanation of core moral considerations that emerge among diverse standpoints. Specifically designed for those studying to become and those who are ethics consultants, this book, with its innovative and multi-layered approach, allows readers to share a peer-review-like experience that shows accountability to be what it is, an ethical, not merely procedural or administrative, undertaking.
