Meaning and Mystery Book Excerpt:

Meaning and Mystery offers a challenge to the way Philosophyhas traditionally approached the issue of belief in God as atheoretical problem, proposing instead a form of reflection moreappropriate to the practical nature of the issue. Makes use of abundant illustrative material, from bothliterature, such as Les Misérables, Edwin Abott’sFlatland, Yann Martel’s Life of Pi and LeoTolstoy’s A Confession, and popular culture, such asadvertisements, the television series Joan of Arcadia andthe film Stranger Than Fiction Uses imaginative scenarios to offer explanations of centralconcepts Incorporates theories on human thought and behavior inexploring the formation of religious belief Written in a style that is accessible to readers with littlebackground knowledge of philosophy

Revealing the Mysterion Book Excerpt:

Scholars largely agree that the NT term “mysterion” is a terminus technicus, originating from Daniel. This project traces the word in the Dead Sea Scrolls and other sectors of Judaism. Like Daniel, the term consistently retains eschatological connotations. The monograph then examines how mystery functions within 1 Corinthians and seeks to explain why the term is often employed. The apocalyptic term concerns the Messiah reigning in the midst of defeat, eschatological revelations and tongues, charismatic exegesis, and the transformation of believers into the image of the last Adam.

Thomas Kyd s Mystery Play Book Excerpt:

One of the most popular plays of the Elizabethan period, The Spanish Tragedy has long been accepted as the first major example of the revenge tragedy genre which enjoyed a great vogue in Tudor and Stuart England. However, in this first full-length study in English of the play, the author offers an original analysis of its mystery subtext. He shows how Kyd defines the play as a mystery by analogies between the large play and three plays-within-the-play, and then he discusses the ways in which the play is a mystery: as an allegory, as a prototypical detective story, and as a mystery ritual. This monograph not only expands our knowledge of Kyd's dramaturgy but it also broadens our understanding of the learned dimensions of Elizabethan popular drama.

Teaching World History as Mystery Book Excerpt:

Offering a philosophy, methodology, and examples for history instruction that are active, imaginative, and provocative, this text presents a fully developed pedagogy based on problem-solving methods that promote reasoning and judgment and restore a sense of imagination and participation to classroom learning. It is designed to draw readers into the detective process that characterizes the work of professional historians and social scientists ─ sharing raw data, defining terms, building interpretations, and testing competing theories. An inquiry framework drives both the pedagogy and the choice of historical materials, with selections favoring the unsolved, controversial, and fragmented rather than the neatly wrapped up analysis of past events. Teaching World History as Mystery: Provides a balanced combination of interestingly arranged historical content, and clearly explained instructional strategies Features case studies of commonly and not so commonly taught topics within a typical world/global history curriculum using combinations of primary and secondary documents Discusses ways of dealing with ethical and moral issues in world history classrooms, drawing students into persisting questions of historical truth, bias, and judgment

Relationship Book Excerpt:

This book is about all of the kinds of relationships people can have. It is a very insightful book about how relationships emerge. But it is also about how indispensable they are to our ongoing sense of being who we are in the worlds we inhabit. We have relationships with various people. But we also have relationships with our possessions, with our pets, and with our pens and car keys. We have relationships with the foods we eat, the places we go, and the diversions we take. We have relationships with the news we attend to, the gossip we consume, and the places we are familiar with. We have relationships with our clothes, our lotions and potions, our grooming equipment, our computers and our snow shovels. Taken together, all of the relationships we have had, have today, and will have in the future attach us to our worlds in an admixture of pushes and pulls on our attention and our behavior. Metaphorically, it might visually look much like an intricate circular spider web, with us individually stuck at the core. We use the singular relationship here because we want to explore what it is that all relationships have in common: relationship. Relationships are sticky. They are far easier to fall into than to escape from. They are often demanding, requiring our attention when we wanted to devote our attention elsewhere. The drama of misplaced keys or a balky computer can take over our lives. We have hopes for certain relationships. We can be disappointed in how they turn out. But most of the myriad relationships that affect our lives just sort of happen. If they dont serve our purposes as we think we deserve, we drop them. A piece of clothing that just doesnt look right in the light can be dropped. Thats something you cant do with your own baby. You have a relationship with your body. If youre rich, you can get a remodeling job. If youre not, you may be stuck with the body youve got. Some relationships bring us down. Other relationships lift us up. In this book, you will learn how to create the kinds of relationships you need to get to where you want to go. The relationship you have with yourself is key. This book reveals to you how, if you get that right, most of the other relationships you live in, and by, will fall into place.
