ISBN: , , , Description Provides an account of the nature of philosophy which is rooted in the question of the meaning of life. It makes a powerful and vivid case for believing that this question is neither obscure nor obsolete, but reflects a quintessentially human concern to which other traditional philosophical problems can be readily related; allowing them to be reconnected with natural interest, and providing a diagnosis of the typical lines of opposition across philosophy's debates.
Pioneers, Settlers, Aliens, Exiles: The decolonisation of white identity in Zimbabwe
James Tartaglia looks at the various ways philosophers have tried to avoid the conclusion that life is meaningless, and in the process have distanced philosophy from the concept of transcendence. Title: Philosophy of Globalization. Publisher: De Gruyter. Description The aim of the publication is both to provide the debates on globalization with a genuine philosophical perspective by working out its normative dimensions, and to scientifically ground the ethical-philosophical discourse on global responsibility.
Other topics addressed are the altering consciousness of space and time, and globalization as a discourse, as an ideology and as a symbolic form. Title: The Philosophy of Human Rights. Description The notion of "human rights" is widely used in political and moral debates. The core idea, that all human beings have some inalienable basic rights, is appealing and has an important practical function: It allows moral criticism of various wrongs and calls for action in order to prevent them. The articles in this collection take up a tension between the wide political use of human rights claims and some intellectual skepticism about them.
In particular, three major issues call for clarification: the questions of how to justify human rights, how to determine their scope and the corresponding obligations, and how to overcome the tension between universal normative claims and particular moralities.

Title: The Philosophy of Psychiatry and Biologism.
Archive for March, 2010
Publisher: Frontiers Media SA. Description There has been an ongoing debate about the capabilities and limits of the bio-natural sciences as sources and the methodological measure in the philosophy of psychiatry for quite some time now. Still, many problems remain unsolved, at least partly for the following reasons: The opposing parties do not tend to speak with each other, exchange their arguments and try to increase mutual understanding.
This leads to several shortcomings: 1 Good arguments and insights from both sides of the debate get less attention they deserve. Since undeniably, most philosophical positions usually have a grain of truth hidden in them. In sum, many controversies persist with regard to the appropriate methodological, epistemological, and even ontological level for psychiatric explanation and therapies. In a conference which took place in December last year, we tried to contribute to a better understanding about what really is at issue in the philosophy of psychiatry.

We asked for a common basis for several sides, for points of divergence and for the practical impact of different solutions on everyday work in psychiatry. Since psychiatry as a whole is a subject that is to wide to be covered in a single meeting, we focused on the following four core topics: 1.

Competing accounts of psychiatric biologism, reductionism, and physicalism. Mental disease and brain disease in the light of current neuroscientific and epigenetic findings. Normative suppositions for different accounts of mental disease. Normative implications of different accounts of mental disease. These topics, which have been vigorously as well as fruitfully discussed at our conference, will ideally be, too, in the center of our contribution to Frontiers.
At this point, it seems promising to us to group three or four Target Articles TA and let them get criticized by a couple of commentaries from different angles to give the issue a much broader and detailed perspective.

Title: Phoenix from the Ashes. Publisher: ANU Press. ANU Press License. Description The continued existence of the Russian defence and arms industry OPK was called into question following the disintegration of the Soviet Union in Industry experts cited the lack of a domestic market, endemic corruption, and excess capacity within the industry as factors underpinning its predicted demise.
Their orders introduced hard currency back into the industry and went a long way to preventing the forecasted OPK collapse. Although pessimistic predictions continued to plague the OPK throughout the s, the valuable export dollars provided the OPK the breathing space it needed to claw back its competitive advantage as an arms producer. That revival has been further underpinned by a new political commitment, various research and development initiatives, and the restoration of defence industry as a tool of Russian foreign policy.
The short-term future of the Russian OPK looks promising. Meanwhile, exports will be safeguarded by continued foreign demand for niche Russian defence products.

The Great Zimbabwe Bird first appeared in an armorial sense when it was incorporated in the coat of arms of Southern Rhodesia, which were granted by Royal Warrant on 11 August It then appeared alone on the Zimbabwe Rhodesian flag of , and it is now displayed on the flag of Zimbabwe. The arms of were initially retained by the Zimbabwean Government until a new coat of arms were adopted on 12 September Anyone who has been to Zimbabwe or seen a photograph of a Zimbabwean flag made in Zimbabwe will notice that the Zimbabwe Bird is rendered in the same format as it appeared on the arms of and as it appeared on the Rhodesian flag of and the Zimbabwe Rhodesian flag of They will also notice that the red star on which the bird is placed is a regular star.
However, a different, rather flattened version of the bird, sometimes displayed on an irregular, flattened star, is often seen on flags that are manufactured outside of Zimbabwe. The origin of this discrepancy appears to be an illustration of the proposed new flag that was first released by the Zimbabwe Ministry of Information in April , just prior to the country attaining full independence. The poor quality of the illustration, with the star appearing as irregular on the flag, but regular under the description of the meanings on the right, and with the Zimbabwe Bird being omitted completely from where it should be next to the words The National Emblem, would suggest that it was done in haste and without accuracy.
Nevertheless, in the absence of a better source, vexillologists outside of Zimbabwe have used this illustration as the basis for their rendering of the emblem on the flag, which has then been copied by many flag manufacturers outside of Zimbabwe.
Meanwhile, flag manufacturers inside Zimbabwe continue to produce flags emblazoned with the original version of the bird sitting on a regular star. As a result, there are now two versions of the bird and star - the flattened one and the regular one. Since the flag is the national flag of Zimbabwe, it should surely follow that the version as produced and used in the country itself should be regarded the official version. On 7 August , Samora Machel made a famous speech involving the national flag of Zimbabwe, in which he said while holding the flag, "This flag covers everyone. There are no blacks in Zimbabwe, there are no whites, there are no mulattos and Indians, today there are just Zimbabweans.
In Harare , Zimbabwe, in , every other car had one to many miniature national flags plastered onto it. Sales of the national flag were sky-high in the country. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
