Sovereign Virtue

1. Equality of welfare

The Notion of Equality

The Notion of Equality

This title was first published in 2001. In the articles collected in this anthology, contemporary analytic philosophers examine the ways in which the notion of equality functions in moral and political discourse. Among the topics discussed are the relationship between the ideal of equality and formal features of moral discourse, the conflict between the ideal of equality of welfare and the ideal of equality of resources and the relationship between the equality of opportunity and the equality of results.

Justice and the Capabilities Approach

Justice and the Capabilities Approach

The capabilities approach is a widely influential alternative theory of justice, popularized by Nobel Prize winner Amartya Sen and also by Martha Nussbaum. Justice and the Capabilities Approach is the first work of its kind to publish in one place the most influential essays in the field covering a number of topics, including constitutional law, cosmopolitanism, distributive justice, the family, feminism, global justice, human rights, poverty, and social justice. The collection should help inform both scholars and students coming to the study of the capabilities approach for the first time of both the importance and complexity of the wider debate, as well as shed light on how the approach might be further improved and applied.

The Well-Being Project

The Well-Being Project

In 1987 a groundbreaking survey called The Well-Being Project was conducted by the California Network of Mental Health Clients under contract to the Office of Prevention of the California Department of Mental Health to explore what factors promote or deter the well-being of those diagnosed/labeled as “mentally ill.” Initially, it had been assumed that the analysis of the survey data as well as the final written report would be awarded to a university or other professional research group. Much to the surprise of some, and in the spirit of the disability rights movement rallying cry of “nothing about us without us,” the successful proposal was written by mental health client researchers Jean Campbell and Ron Schraiber on behalf of the California Network of Mental Health Clients. The study became known as The Well-Being Project: Mental Health Clients Speak for Themselves, and was published in 1989; additionally, an award winning documentary “People Say I’m Crazy” based on the study’s findings was produced as well as a compendium book to the video with the same title.

The Tao of Rejuvenation

Fundamental Principles of Health, Longevity, and Essential Well-Being

The Tao of Rejuvenation

Throughout history Taoists, Christians, the yogis of northern India, and others have learned that the secret of longevity and even bodily rejuvenation lies in unlocking the body's own healing "somas" (or higher chemistry). Traditionally, however, the principles and techniques behind their discoveries have been hidden, transmitted only from teacher to student. Fortunately, these esoteric secrets are but the ultimate expression of a time-tested body of traditional healing wisdom that has taken strong root in the Western world, where it has been clarified and amplified by a new generation of healers and spiritual practitioners. The Tao of Rejuvenation is an inspiring and very well-written guide to the underlying principles and basic practices essential to our ability to not only achieve longevity and bodily rejuvenation, but also to lead a vital, balanced, and happy life. Written in a clear, rational, and highly readable style, it is a book that speaks to all modern men and women ready and willing to assume responsibility for their own destiny. In The Tao of Rejuvenation author Angelo Druda explains how our health and well-being is based on a simple three-part process of purification, rebalancing, and rejuvenation. He makes specific recommendations for utilizing this process to transform our diet, our exercise regimen, even our sexuality, so that these become powerful sources of rejuvenative energy. Case studies and clear explanations make the practices easier and more engaging. Druda has worked professionally with medicinal herbs for many years, and he skillfully incorporates them in the process of bodily renewal. The Tao of Rejuvenation is a timely and authoritative guide that will be of great interest to complementary and alternative medicine professionals, those in need of radical healing and rejuvenation, and anyone interested in enhancing his or her own health and vitality.
