EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

Environmental Education and Awareness is a component of Encyclopedia of Human Resources Policy, Development and Management which is part of the global Encyclopedia of Life Support Systems (EOLSS), an integrated compendium of twenty one Encyclopedias. The Theme is organized into seven different topics which represent the main scientific areas of the theme: The first topic, Formal Environmental Education at Preschool, Primary and Secondary Levels; important issues of children's formal environmental education are discussed in this topic, considering that as future adults today's children are more likely than not to make adverse impacts on the natural environment and earth's life-support systems through their behavior, life-styles and attitude, the importance of formal environmental education for children as well as of instilling in their consciousness awareness of the natural environment and respect for it cannot be over-stated. The succeeding six topics are Formal Environmental Education at the Undergraduate Level; Formal Environmental Education at the Graduate Level; Modern and Innovative Techniques for Environmental Education; Professional Environmental Education; Continuing Education; The Voluntary Sector and Initiatives in Environmental Education. Each of these consists of a topic chapter emphasizing the general aspects and various subject articles explaining the back ground, theory and practice of a specific type of environmental education and awareness for achieving global sustainable development and global environmental sustainability that are now at the top of international environmental agenda. These two volumes are aimed at the following five major target audiences: University and College Students, Educators, Professional Practitioners, Research Personnel and Policy Analysts, Managers, and Decision Makers and NGOs.

Nietzsche S Anthropic Circle
Author: George J. Stack
Publisher: University Rochester Press
Release Date: 2005
Pages: 271
ISBN:
Available Language: English, Spanish, And French
EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

Nietzsche's Anthropic Circle is an internal analysis and interpretation of Nietzsche's critical uncovering of "anthropomorphic truth" in language and science, as well as his later use of anthropic analogies and transferences in his imaginative perspectival interpretation "a hybrid of art and science" of a universal, immanent "will to power" in nature. Both the relationship of Nietzsche to Kant's analysis of knowledge in the Critique of Pure Reason and his absorption of a dynamic theory of nature are explored in some detail. A crucial distinction between Nietzsche's perspectival concept of knowledge and perspectival interpretation is thoroughly discussed against the background of recurring analyses of his critique of knowledge and truth. It is shown that instrumental fictionalism was adopted by Nietzsche in order to put in question the pure objectivism of science. This links an aspect of his thought to the domain of recent American philosophy of science. The anticipatory relationship between Nietzsche's proto-structuralist analysis of language and recent linguistic structuralism, as well as his affiliation with evolutionary epistemology is explored. In the concluding portion of this inquiry it is contended that Nietzsche's psychology of a will to power in human drives, thought and behavior is at least theoretically defensible. However, it must be segregated from the extension of a will to power to the cosmos. There is a strong concluding argument offered that seeks to demonstrate that the so-called 'metaphysics' of the will to power is an artfully constructed, exoteric fable designed to retrieve a sense of the humanization of the world in face of a de-anthropomorphic world picture. George Stack is Professor Emeritus of Philosophy at the State University College of New York at Brockport, and the author of several books dealing with the philosophy of Friedrich Nietzsche.

Available Language: English, Spanish, And French
EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

Seeks answers to these questions using the underlying assumption that consciousness can be understood using the intellectual potential of modern physics and other sciences. There are a number of theories of consciousness, some based on classical physics while others require the use of quantum concepts. The latter ones have drawn criticism from the parts of the scientific establishment while simultaneously claiming that classical approaches are doomed to failure. The contributing authors presents a spectrum of opinions from both sides of this on-going scientific debate, allowing readers to decide for themselves which of the approaches are most likely to succeed.

The Soul Of The Earth

Available Language: English, Spanish, And French
EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

SOUL OF THE EARTHby Samuel A. Nigro, MD SOUL OF THE EARTH--by Samuel A. Nigro, MD is the accumulation of what was learned over 70 plus years of life, over 45 years of marriage, over 40 years as a psychiatrist, 3 years in the U.S. Navy Submarine Service, and as a first generation American with five children and ten grandchildren. The planet and mankind are amazing. To limit ourselves to behaviors as if there is nothing more, is contradicted by an accurate comprehensive understanding of the planet and the universe. Basically, love is superior to all and the universe is the entropy necessary for the expression of love. Love itself requires there to be more. Nothing more is a cruel joke that life and love are meaningless. All logic and reason demand there be more, and we should act as if there is even much more love in anticipation. And if there isnt, then there ought to be! Regardless, the world would be better by believing in such and acting as such. The book provides some articles but most of it is the way to live a transcendental life: organized matter sanctified and given a soul by identity, truth, oneness, good and beauty for everyones life, liberty, and pursuit of happinesspartially the subtitle of the book. You get substance and the transcendental principles for living that save by actuality for a change. This is in contrast to the virtual reality culture of the unreliable manipulating self-discrediting noisy glitzy press&media imposed substanceless non-being which, by suggestibility, turns us into choiceless aliens instead of free persons for the planet. By the self-worshiping self-discrediting press&media, we are on the madman road-rage race to the bottom culture of pollution, disgust, death, and decline. Not by this book. Against vulgar suggestibility and glitz caused gullibility, this book gives real being by teaching six analogous ways of living the wisdom-filled eight categories of metaphors of love in the cone of space-time: As a human particle by elementary physicsevent, spectrum, field, quantum, singularity, dimension, uncertainty, and force. As a human being by community universalsdignity, unity, integrity, identity, spirituality, life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness. As a C/catholic, Roman or otherwise, by the sacramentsBaptism, Penance, Holy Communion, Extreme Unction, Holy Orders, Matrimony, and Grace. As a Christian by the virtuesfaith, hope, charity, prudence, justice, courage, temperance, and holiness. As a patient by the universal variables of all therapyliving things are precious, selective ignoring, subdued spontaneity non-self excluded, affect assistance, detached warmth & gentleness, non-reactive listening, C2CC centered candidness, and peace & mercy. And as sanctified by the last words of the crucified Christ. Take your pick or combine them all. Except for the quantity, it is simple. Thousands of aphorisms and concepts about every imaginable topic are offered to teach ancient secrets from nature and natures God (to quote the Founding Fathers of America). The book SPIRITUALIZES our contemporary materialist culture by an audacious free-spirited sacramentalization of everything. Read it through once; then a few pages or a chapter daily; and problem-solve as needed by index and perusal. You will be better. The world will be better. You will learn to be a real human being for everyone. And you will have your soul back by embracing the universal Mass mantra: life-sacrifice-virtue-lovehumanity-peace-freedom-death.

Quantum Universe And Synchronicity
Author: George Anderson
Publisher: Bruno Del Medico Editore
Release Date: 2020-07-04
Pages: 266
ISBN:
Available Language: English, Spanish, And French
EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

Pages 266. Quantum physics proposes, on a scientific basis, the concept of a universe in which each particle is connected with all the others through a bond that surpasses every law of classical physics. In this context, all things converge in a great project of cosmic evolution, the "Unus mundus". Today many well-known scientists subscribe to the "anthropic theory", according to which the universe was not born by chance, but was created exactly with the characteristics it possesses to host intelligent life. The latest scientific discoveries deny materialism and impose a more spiritual vision of the universe in which we live. The synchronicity theory was developed with rigorous methodologies by the famous psychologist Carl Jung. During a long collaboration Jung obtained the support and encouragement of a valuable fellow student, the physicist Wolfgang Pauli who was a Nobel Prize in 1945. Synchronicity represents a very valid starting point for investigating the profound reasons for some events that normally appear random. In fact, synchronicities are manifested in the life of each of us through strange coincidences, dreams, intuitions and presentiments, to confirm that nothing comes from chance. The synchronicities described by Jung are chains of apparently random episodes, which nevertheless contain a "numinous" message. Although the theory of synchronicity is credited to the field of metaphysics, the most current discoveries of quantum physics have demonstrated its scientific plausibility. Each event, like the series of epidemics that dot the last few decades, leaves the context of randomness and takes on a well-defined meaning in the history of the human species. Probably the theory of synchronicity is the most suitable to answer this question: does the coronavirus represent an event due to chance, or does it contain a significance that needs to be revealed? In the final part this book deals with the numerous cases of epidemics that have developed in recent years (Sars, Mers, Hiv, Ebola, Covid-19 etc.) and places them in the context of a global synchronicity that is guiding humanity towards highest level of complexity and awareness.

God Without The Supernatural
Author: Peter Forrest
Publisher: Cornell University Press
Release Date: 1996
Pages: 256
ISBN:
Available Language: English, Spanish, And French
EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

Peter Forrest expounds a program of best-explanation apologetics. He contends that since the existence of God would provide the best possible explanation of various facts, those facts support theism. Among the facts cited are the suitability of the universe for life, the regularity of the universe, the human capacity for intellectual progress, the experience of a moral order, and various forms of beauty. The beauty that interests Forrest as evidence for the existence of God includes sensuous beauty; the beauty of the natural order, as revealed by the sciences; and the beauty of necessity discovered by mathematicians. In addressing the need for an adequate motive for creation, Forrest conjectures that God created the universe for embodied persons not for their life on earth alone but also for an afterlife. Forrest acknowledges the speculative nature of such an account. He suggests that philosophical speculation is also required to defend theism against the charge that it is too extravagant a hypothesis to be warranted. Providing a speculative defense against the argument from evil, he explains how such speculations can be used to support best-explanation arguments without the conclusions themselves being rendered purely speculative.
