    Hall, Matthew; Maher, Jennifer; Nurse, Angus; Potter, Gary; South, Nigel; Wyatt, Tanya
    In the 21st century, environmental harm is an ever-present reality of our globalised world.

  12. Anaïs Nin: shame and sex in contemporary culture

    Charnock, Ruth
    Why is it that some writing embarrasses us? What motivates the desire to publically shame? What are the erotic pleasures produced by shame and shaming? Why are depictions of sex and sexuality in contemporary culture so often also depictions of shame? And what does a minor writer from the 1930s, known more for her colourful sex life than her work, have to do with any of these questions? Anaïs Nin: Shame and Sex in Contemporary Culture argues that there is a series of close and productive relationships between Anaïs Nin’s stories about shame and shamelessness, her critical reception, and contemporary...

  15. Robert Grosseteste and the pursuit of religious and scientific learning in the middle ages

    Cunningham, Jack P.; Hocknull, Mark
    This text explores a wide range of topics relating to scientific and religious learning in the work of Bishop Robert Grosseteste (c. 1168-1253) and does so from various perspectives, including those of a 21st century scientists, historians, and philosophers as well as several medievalists. In particular, it aims to contribute to our understanding of where to place Grosseteste in the history of science (against the background of the famous claim by A.C. Crombie that Grosseteste introduced what we now might call 'experimental science') and to demonstrate that the polymathic world of the medieval scholar, who recognized no dichotomy in the...

  16. Aging workers and the employee-employer relationship

    Bal, P. Matthijs; Kooij, Dorien T. A. M.; Rousseau, Denise M.
    The world’s population is aging rapidly (United Nations, 2009 ). In 2009, one out of nine persons in the world was older than 60. In 2050, one out of every fi ve persons is expected to be 60 years or older (United Nations, 2009 ). In the world’s more developed regions, estimates are that one out of three will be 60 years or over by 2050. These changes, which are coming rapidly, particularly in the developed world, are attributable to three trends since the end of World War II. First, the baby boom generation currently constitutes the largest birth cohort ever to approach retirement age. Second, declining...

  18. The philosophy of media: a short history of ideas and innovations from Socrates to social media

    Hassan, Robert; Sutherland, Thomas
    Since the late-1980s the rise of the Internet and the emergence of the Networked Society have led to a rapid and profound transformation of everyday life. Underpinning this revolution is the computer – a media technology that is capable of not only transforming itself, but almost every other machine and media process that humans have used throughout history. In Philosophy of Media, Hassan and Sutherland explore the philosophical and technological trajectory of media from Classical Greece until today, casting a new and revealing light upon the global media condition.

  19. The trainable cat: a practical guide to making life happier for you and your cat

    Bradshaw, John; Ellis, Sarah
    The idea of training rarely crosses cat owners’ minds, and we often assume that cats can’t and don’t need to be trained. But in The Trainable Cat, bestselling anthrozoologist John Bradshaw and cat expert Sarah Ellis show that not only can cats be trained, but they absolutely must be in order to strengthen the bond between pet and owner, reduce their anxiety, and maximize their happiness. Twenty-first-century urban life can be taxing for cats who historically have been wild and solitary hunters, hostile to change and turmoil. Cats today are forced to live within the confines of cramped city apartments, in...
