Knowing the End From the Beginning

Much study has taken place of the prophetic and apocalyptic writings in recent decades, but the relationship between the two has been little explored. A major explicit debate on the question is very much needed and is now provided. This collection of essays addresses the subject from a variety of points of view, including studies on the issues of definitions, ancient Near Eastern "prophecies", social anthropology and modern apocalyptic movements. In the introduction, Lester Grabbe argues that many scholars operate with subconscious assumptions about how apocalyptic writings relate to the prophetic writings, but that many of these assumptions now need to be questioned in the light of the essays in this volume. Such a comprehensive attempt to tackle the main theoretical issues arising from the study of the prophetic and the apocalyptic has not been attempted for some time. This volume brings fresh questions and insights that both specialists and students will want to consider.

Knowing the Natural Law

Knowing that the sun rises is theoretical knowledge; knowing that I ought to get
up and begin my day is practical knowledge. ... four different levels of speculative
and practical knowledge, based upon three criteria: object, mode, and end.

Knowing the Natural Law

Knowing the Natural Law traces the thought of Aquinas from an understanding of human nature to a knowledge of the human good, from there to an account of ought-statements, and finally to choice, which issues in human actions. The much discussed article on the precepts of the natural law (I-II, 94, 2) provides the framework for a natural law rooted in human nature and in speculative knowledge. Practical knowledge is itself threefold: potentially practical knowledge, virtually practical knowledge, and fully practical knowledge.

The Beginning of Everything and the End of Everything Else

Her name is Persia: a girl of the 1970s, cherishing a nature sure in its curiosity and uncluttered values. His name is Adrian Parkes-Bourne: a man magnificent in his firm grasp on life and and his belief in modern affluence. The beginning is their meeting, and that is also an end, for Persia's life becomes singed by the relationship then bleached to suburban conformity. This is a simple story of a marriage between self certainty and self probity; a marriage where freedom of spirit is fettered and disciplined and life is seen as a continuing sequence of beginnings and ends.

The Book of Not Knowing

Over decades of martial arts and meditation practice, Peter Ralston discovered a curious and paradoxical fact: that true awareness arises from a state of not-knowing. Even the most sincere investigation of self and spirit, he says, is often sabotaged by our tendency to grab too quickly for answers and ideas as we retreat to the safety of the known. This "Hitchhiker’s Guide to Awareness" provides helpful guideposts along an experiential journey for those Western minds predisposed to wandering off to old habits, cherished presumptions, and a stubbornly solid sense of self. With ease and clarity Ralston teaches readers how to become aware of the background patterns that they are usually too busy, stressed, or distracted to notice. The Book of Not Knowing points out the ways people get stuck in their lives and offers readers a way to make fresh choices about every aspect of their lives, from a place of awareness instead of autopilot.

A Constant Feeling of Not Knowing

"This book tells the story of Isabel's life from early childhood to young adulthood, growing up in Spain in the 1970s and 1980s. It is told through the voice of Isabel as she struggles to make sense of her bewildering world of family rules and social norms, where children are expected to do as they were told without discussion. Isabel is the fifth child of seven, watching both her older and younger siblings' interests and behaviour through the lens of a little girl who finds it difficult to play and engage with others.

Isabel is a serious little girl who watches everything, seeing minute details in every aspect of her life. Repeatedly she describes the anxiety she feels of "not knowing" what is going to happen and when she might be expected to do something outside of her comfort zone. The stories of her traumatic start at school, the tonsillectomy, her father's terrifying behaviour towards his children, and her adolescent emotions and first experience of sex are told with vivid attention to detail.

Although autism is never explicitly mentioned in this book, Isabel's struggles to make sense of the world, her ability to focus with such intensity and the overwhelming anxiety that she experiences are all features of girls and women with Asperger's syndrome, or autism. Indeed, the behaviour of Isabel's father, Roberto, suggests that he too is on the spectrum, with behaviours that make him frightening and unpredictable to a child.

This book has been sensitively written and the story is engaging and unpredictable. It also gives insight into how a girl who might be on the autistic spectrum struggles to cope with the demands of social and family life. I can thoroughly recommend this book to anyone who likes to read about family sagas or who is interested in childhood and autism."

Anishinaabe Ways of Knowing and Being

Very few studies have examined the worldview of the Anishinaabeg from within the culture itself and none have explored the Anishinaabe worldview in relation to their efforts to maintain their culture in the present-day world. This book fills that gap. Focusing mainly on the Minnesota Anishinaabeg, Lawrence Gross explores how their worldview works to create a holistic way of living. However, as Gross also argues, the Anishinaabeg saw the end of their world early in the 20th century and experienced what he calls 'postapocalypse stress syndrome.' As such, the book further explores how the values engendered by the worldview of the Anishinaabeg are finding expression in the modern world as they seek to rebuild their society.

Manila Noir

“Travel, history, and a little bit of lore . . . Transports you to the Philippines and is filled with riveting and sometimes dark stories of the capital city.” —Glamour For the perfect definition of noir, look no further than Manila. The city itself is like a femme fatale: sexy, complicated, and betrayed. From its fraught colonial history to its present-day incarnation of a teeming metropolis, it is a city of extremes: posh hotels and slums, religious zeal and superstitions, corrupt cops and heroic citizens. Capturing the essence of Manila, one of the wildest cities on the planet, this collection of noir includes stories by Lourd de Veyra, Gina Apostol, Budjette Tan and Kajo Baldisimo, F.H. Batacan, Jose Dalisay, Eric Gamalinda, Jessica Hagedorn, Angelo R. Lacuesta, R. Zamora Linmark, Rosario Cruz-Lucero, Sabina Murray, Jonas Vitman, Marianne Villanueva, and Lysley Tenorio. “Manila practically defines [noir], as shown by the 14 selections in this excellent anthology . . . The Filipino take on noir includes a liberal dose of the gothic and supernatural, with disappearance and loss being constants.” —Publishers Weekly, starred review “Suffice it to say that what the Noir series in general, and Manila Noir in particular, does so well is to create a 360-degree mosaic of a place . . . By including so many perspectives, from so many walks of life, Manila Noir makes Manila seem as vibrant, and dangerous, and exciting, and confounding as it really felt to live there.” —Lit Wrap “A collection of stories like Akashic’s forthcoming Manila Noir is enough to set a crime-fiction addict’s mouth watering.” —The New York Observer

Knowing Fear

Tracing the development of horror entertainment since the late 18th century, this study argues that scientific discovery, technological progress, and knowledge in general have played an unparalleled role in influencing the evolution of horror. Throughout its many subgenres (biological horror, cosmic horror and others) and formats (film, literature, comics), horror records humanity's uneasy relationship with its own ability to reason, understand, and learn. The text first outlines a loose framework defining several distinct periods in horror development, then explores each period sequentially by looking at the scientific and cultural background of the period, its expression in horror literature, and its expression in horror visual and performing arts.

End of Ignorance

Subtly, a Web has always connected us. Now, the subtle becomes palpable. The World Wide Web unfolds as a global retina, tympanic membrane, and larynx, which enable each to redefine the meanings of 'proximity' and 'point-of-view.' Thus far, however, our new omni-organ has largely been put into the service of a dim ethos centered on profits, property, and survival-of-fittest. In End of Ignorance, we consider another possibility: that the Web might be utilized on behalf of conscious evolution, on behalf of 'educare'--to lead out. Until now, education on the Web has been framed within the familiar schooling conventions of close-by places, times, expertise, and financing. In this book, we attempt to see and speak from a more comprehensive perspective--from the viewpoint of 'noosphere,' Pierre Teilard de Chardin's word for encompassing, hominizing mind. We pose the question: Can noosphere, precipitated as the World Wide Web, provide a venue where hominizing-not-mechanical thought might gain systematic nurture by means of not-scarce education? 'Yes' is our answer. In End of Ignorance we propose Nooschool as a place where individual authentic interest might be evoked, nurtured, and refined-to-vocation. We advocate the systematic construction of a globally situated, omni-connected curriculum with stewardship protected from proprietary control.

Knowing the Adversary

States are more likely to engage in risky and destabilizing actions such as military buildups and preemptive strikes if they believe their adversaries pose a tangible threat. Yet despite the crucial importance of this issue, we don't know enough about how states and their leaders draw inferences about their adversaries' long-term intentions. Knowing the Adversary draws on a wealth of historical archival evidence to shed new light on how world leaders and intelligence organizations actually make these assessments. Keren Yarhi-Milo examines three cases: Britain's assessments of Nazi Germany's intentions in the 1930s, America's assessments of the Soviet Union's intentions during the Carter administration, and the Reagan administration's assessments of Soviet intentions near the end of the Cold War. She advances a new theoretical framework—called selective attention—that emphasizes organizational dynamics, personal diplomatic interactions, and cognitive and affective factors. Yarhi-Milo finds that decision makers don't pay as much attention to those aspects of state behavior that major theories of international politics claim they do. Instead, they tend to determine the intentions of adversaries on the basis of preexisting beliefs, theories, and personal impressions. Yarhi-Milo also shows how intelligence organizations rely on very different indicators than decision makers, focusing more on changes in the military capabilities of adversaries. Knowing the Adversary provides a clearer picture of the historical validity of existing theories, and broadens our understanding of the important role that diplomacy plays in international security.

Doing Justice  Knowing God

Doing Justice: Knowing God represents a fundamentally new departure in ethical theory. Drawing on the work of Alasdair MacIntyre, John Milbank, and Franklin Gamwell, it argues that that modern and postmodern moral theory is fundamentally inadequate, and that the current crisis of values can be resolved only on the basis of a substantive vision of the Good. But it goes beyond these thinkers to argue that such a vision must be grounded metaphysically in a revitalized doctrine of Being. The result is a radically historicized natural-law ethics. This ethics argues that not only human individuals but human societies and indeed the universe as a whole grow and develop toward God. The fundamental moral law is to act in such a way as to promote this development. The book draws out the implications of this insight for our understanding of the virtues as well as for social justice.

An updated edition with two all-new chapters, a new introduction, and a fresh look, this book challenges widely accepted ideas about what it means to know God and offers fresh paths for pursuing genuine spirituality. This practical guide speaks to those who are weary of formulaic faith or who are haunted by nagging doubts about the church, as well as those who find the traditional spiritual disciplines impractical or even agonizing because of their personal wiring. Easy to read but filled with challenging ideas, this book provides a spiritual foundation for pastors and teachers, committed Christians, and anyone interested in discovering God for themselves but wary of predictable paths.
