Deciding What s True Book Excerpt:

Over the past decade, American outlets such as PolitiFact, FactCheck.org, and the Washington Post's Fact Checker have shaken up the political world by holding public figures accountable for what they say. Cited across social and national news media, these verdicts can rattle a political campaign and send the White House press corps scrambling. Yet fact-checking is a fraught kind of journalism, one that challenges reporters' traditional roles as objective observers and places them at the center of white-hot, real-time debates. As these journalists are the first to admit, in a hyperpartisan world, facts can easily slip into fiction, and decisions about which claims to investigate and how to judge them are frequently denounced as unfair play. Deciding What's True draws on Lucas Graves's unique access to the members of the newsrooms leading this movement. Graves vividly recounts the routines of journalists at three of these hyperconnected, technologically innovative organizations and what informs their approach to a story. Graves also plots a compelling, personality-driven history of the fact-checking movement and its recent evolution from the blogosphere, reflecting on its revolutionary remaking of journalistic ethics and practice. His book demonstrates the ways these rising organizations depend on professional networks and media partnerships yet have also made inroads with the academic and philanthropic worlds. These networks have become a vital source of influence as fact-checking spreads around the world.

Mathematics as a Science of Patterns Book Excerpt:

Mathematics as a Science of Patterns is the definitive exposition of a system of ideas about the nature of mathematics which Michael Resnik has been elaborating for a number of years. In calling mathematics a science he implies that it has a factual subject-matter and that mathematical knowledge is on a par with other scientific knowledge; in calling it a science of patterns he expresses his commitment to a structuralist philosophy of mathematics. He links this to a defence of realism about the metaphysics of mathematics—the view that mathematics is about things that really exist. Resnik's distinctive philosophy of mathematics is here presented in an accessible and systematic form: it will be of value not only to specialists in this area, but to philosophers, mathematicians, and logicians interested in the relationship between these three disciplines, or in truth, realism, and epistemology.

Trouble in Mind Book Excerpt:

Introducing maverick Chicago private investigator Sam Kelson in the first of a hardhitting new crime noir series. Sam Kelson is a PI like no other. As a consequence of being shot in the head while working undercover as a Chicago cop, he suffers from disinhibition: he cannot keep silent or tell lies when questioned. But truth be told - and Kelson always tells the truth - he still feels compelled to investigate and, despite the odds, he's good at his job. Hired by Trina Felbanks to investigate her pharmacist brother, whom she suspects is dealing drugs, Kelson arrives at Felbanks' home to make a shocking discovery. Arrested on suspicion of murder, he makes an even more startling discovery concerning his client's identity. Kelson would appear to have been set up ... but by whom, and why? As events spiral out of control and the body count rises, Kelson realizes he's made a dangerously powerful enemy. Will he survive long enough to discover who has targeted him - and what it is they want?

Contact with Reality Book Excerpt:

Is knowledge discovered, or just invented? Can we ever get outside ourselves to know how reality is in itself, independent of us? Philosophical realism raises the question whether in our knowing we connect with an independent reality--or only connect with our own mental constructs. Far from being a silly parlor game, the question impacts our lives concretely and deeply. Modern Western culture has been infected with antirealism and the doubt, skepticism, subjectivism, relativism, and atheism that attends it--not to mention distrust and arbitrary (mis)use of reality. Premier scientist-turned-philosopher Michael Polanyi stepped aside from research to offer an innovative account of knowing that takes its cue from how discovery actually happens. Polanyi defied the antirealism of the twentieth century, sounding a ringing note of hope in his repeated claim that in discovery, we know we have made contact with reality because "we have a sense of the possibility of indeterminate future manifestations." And that sense marks contact with reality, because it is the way reality is: abundant, generous, and fraught with as-yet-unnameable possibilities. This book examines that distinctive claim, contrasting it to the wider philosophical discussions regarding realism and antirealism in the recent decades. It shows why Polanyi's outlook is superior, and why that matters, not just to scientific discoverers, but to us all.

What True Love Is Book Excerpt:

During your entire life, you’ll experience the worst and the best from everyone you’ll encounter, and most of the times, you’ll be unaware of how much these experiences affect your attitude towards others. We grow more positive or negative, depending on the amount of negativity or positivity accumulated from our experiences, and depending also on how we handle them within us. But are we victims? Do we deserve what happens to us? Do we have a choice on how we learn from each relationship? Can we truly change and become better persons? The answers we choose for any of these questions defines who we are, what we do, and the decisions we make along our path with the ones we encounter. Such decisions, on the other hand, will then reflect back at our identity, by reinforcing what already exists within us, or by leading us into the recreation of a new self. There is no such thing as being stronger or weaker but merely more ware or not of our own power and responsibility towards our life. And, no matter what, it is still better to be aware under any circumstance than having a false pride in what regards our perceptions of the world and society in particular. We shouldn’t need masks to hide our nature from others. The lack of answers to our questions related to love, either for us or others, defines a strong ideal and values lacking recognition, and not the opposite. This is what we see in beautiful women that can’t find the man they’re looking for, get married, have children and live wonderful family lives. They may even start developing the idea that men don’t appreciate them, that men only love the wrong women and, in doing so, become more depreciative and bitter themselves. And once this happens, they will probably find other explanations to deny the failure within their ego. And such answers will then revert back into blaming others or circumstances, rather that restarting a healing process that is necessary to occur from within. And the problem in all this equation, that actually applies to both genders, is not related to results only, but foremost to whom we become. To look at such individuals and say that they can’t have a healthy relationship isn’t as important as to say that they don’t love themselves. They’ve lost their sense of purpose. And now, the answers they seek are related to the belief that they’re superior to others in intellect and independency. The answers that these individuals need, on the other hand, are found within their heart and hidden behind prejudice and defense mechanisms they've learned to apply in all encounters. With these concepts in consideration, this book intends to provide more wisdom on how to handle difficult relationships and overcome the problem on not being able to give and receive love, while looking at the social, psychological and spiritual perspectives, and by understanding how they interact in our own personal perception of reality.

Perspectives in Sociology Book Excerpt:

From its first edition in 1979, Perspectives in Sociology has provided generations of undergraduates with a clear, reassuring introduction to the complications of sociological theory. This revised and updated edition features: a concise introduction to the major debates of the twentieth century, placing them in historical and philosophical context information on thinkers of the nineteenth and early twentieth century whose relevance to modern social thought is only now being recognized, e.g. Nietszche, Saussure, Simmel connections drawn between post-structuralist thinkers like Foucault and Derrida and the founding figures of sociology: Marx, Weber and Durkheim a completely rewritten chapter on the ‘Synthesisers’ - Bourdieu, Habermas and Giddens - and their attempts to generate a consensus from the apparently conflicting theories of their predecessors a new chapter reviewing the rise of British sociology, with particular reference to the political context and the changing role of ‘class’ in sociological thinking a new chapter describing the attempts of sociological theorists to explain current concerns, problems, and issues in the areas of gender, (homo)sexuality, and ethnicity in the context of the postcolonial world. While retaining its emphasis and wealth of information on the founding figures of sociology, this fifth edition now features a new easy-to-read format, (with particular attention paid to the linking and cross-referencing of chapters), and includes much new material on contemporary social theory with particular reference to its attempts to tackle current problems and issues in the areas of gender, sexuality, and ethnicity in the postcolonial context.
