Download and read online The Oxford Handbook of Philosophy of Death in PDF and EPUB Death has long been a pre-occupation of philosophers, and this is especially so today. The Oxford Handbook of Philosophy of Death collects 21 newly commissioned essays that cover current philosophical thinking of death-related topics across the entire range of the discipline. These include metaphysical topics--such as the nature of death, the possibility of an afterlife, the nature of persons, and how our thinking about time affects what we think about death--as well as axiological topics, such as whether death is bad for its victim, what makes it bad to die, what attitude it is fitting to take towards death, the possibility of posthumous harm, and the desirability of immortality. The contributors also explore the views of ancient philosophers such as Aristotle, Plato and Epicurus on topics related to the philosophy of death, and questions in normative ethics, such as what makes killing wrong when it is wrong, and whether it is wrong to kill fetuses, non-human animals, combatants in war, and convicted murderers. With chapters written by a wide range of experts in metaphysics, ethics, and conceptual analysis, and designed to give the reader a comprehensive view of recent developments in the philosophical study of death, this Handbook will appeal to a broad audience in philosophy, particularly in ethics and metaphysics.

Reviews:“Many Dawns encapsulates the continuing journey of individuals and organisations in Singapore towards improving the quality of life of intellectually disabled persons. It tells a moving tale of the struggle of the intellectually disabled persons to find a place in society. It also touches on the plight and joy of volunteers, service providers and caregivers as they strive to realise the dreams and hopes of their mission despite daunting odds. I hope the snippets of information on the various forms of intellectual disability will give readers some insights into the world of those who are so afflicted, and the challenges that they and their caregivers face in our society. But above all, Many Dawns is a tribute to the indomitable spirit and courage of quiet individuals who have strived to make a difference in the lives of the intellectually disabled. It challenges us to be a more inclusive society, to bring about many more dawns in this worthy cause of integrating the intellectually disabled in our society. Many Dawns is most befitting as a commemorative book for the 40th Anniversary of MINDS. I congratulate MINDS and many other organisations dedicated towards bringing a fuller and more productive life to the intellectually disabled persons. I share in your wish for a brighter dawn for the intellectually disabled in Singapore and hope that the future will hold a greater sense of fulfillment to all who are engaged in this noble endeavour.”S R Nathan President Republic of Singapore “We all live within a sphere for our existence, interacting mainly with those who affects our lives. In the absence of personal interest, influence or effort none of us would be mindful of the existence of others outside of our sphere. Many Dawns puts us into contact with the people who are coping with, dealing with or helping those with intellectual disabilities. Reading it makes us appreciative of our many blessings. Our own struggles are put into proper perspective as we read of the courage, commitment and hope of the afflicted, loved ones, and caregivers. I salute all these angels on earth. I commend the people behind the publication for sharing the experiences of the journey with the rest of us. I hope that it will result in more people venturing out of their sphere to reach out to others in the footsteps of these angels in our midst.”Gerard Ee President National Council of Social Service “Many Dawns tells a story of social service for intellectually disabled persons in Singapore in the last 50 years. I salute the people in the story — MINDS and the many volunteers, staff and supporters for bringing about the many dawns, the intellectually disabled persons for their courage and determination as well as, the family members for their love and compassion. These are fine examples of goodness in human character and strength in the human spirit. Many Dawns is a story of a marathon without a finishing line, of many dark nights followed by many dawns. It is moving, heart warming and inspiring.”Chan Soo Sen Minister of State Prime Minister's Office and Ministry of Community Development & Sports “The story of Siew Ling, an intellectually disabled child, is an inspiring one. I share her ambition to lead a normal life. Although we have made progress, there is still much more we can do for our citizens with mental and physical disabilities. I commend this book to every one.”Professor Tommy Koh Ambassador-At-Large Ministry of Foreign Affairs “Many Singaporeans remain unaware of the challenges that those with intellectual disabilities face in our community. Many Dawns is a moving narrative of the extraordinary work MINDS has performed over 40 years, bringing new hope and opportunity to the intellectually disabled, and helping build a stronger and more caring community.”Dr Cheong Choong Kong Deputy Chairman and CEO Singapore Airlines “This book is educational, written with a spirit that upholds a basic respect for people for what they are. I am grateful to the professionals, caregivers and volunteers for having worked so hard in such a focused way to develop better services for intellectually disabled”Claire Chiang Executive Director Banyan Tree Gallery “The involvement of different personalities and community has been captured in the milestones, from ramshackle facilities to modern impressive buildings. On reading the contents one can simply sum up that the human software we have built and enhanced, does contribute to make the difference today. Many helping hands can drive our organizations for intellectually disabled persons further ahead.”Professor S Vasoo Advisor Singapore Central Community Development Council Professiorial Fellow Department of Social Work & Psychology, NUS

Download and read online The Seven Dawns of the Aumakua in PDF and EPUB An extensive examination of Hawaiian spiritual tradition and its emphasis on ancestral spirits by a descendant of an ancient lineage of Hawaiian priests • Describes the time-honored intergenerational bond between a people and a land that embodies the heart of indigenous spirituality • A powerful and authentic portrait of a culture on the cusp of extinction In Hawaiian spiritual tradition, the sacred bond formed between the land and its people is perpetuated in every new generation by the voices of the ancestors who pass on this inheritance. Just as elders are the intermediaries between these voices and the younger generations, the na aumakua, or ancestral spirits, are the intermediaries between the living and the sacred land they inhabit. In The Seven Dawns of the Aumakua Moke Kupihea takes the reader on his journey from childhood to young manhood as he experiences what remains of the spirit of his ancestors and learns the importance of remembering. The descent of the aumakua and its spiritual link through the eyes, sound, voice, touch, people, and breath constitute its seven dawns--the means by which the author is reawakened to his native tradition. The author’s desire to know this tradition leads him as a young boy to seek out his kupuna--his elders, the old men of the mountains--and learn from them the stories to be found in each feature of the landscape. These men and the people he meets as he grows older became his kahu--his ancestral guardians--who teach him to understand that the world of ancestral voices still speaks, if only in a whisper. Learning how to hear these voices is the key for returning Hawaii to its proud spiritual path and learning to live mindfully and soulfully with the land and with all who have come before us.
Download and read online Sex at Dawn in PDF and EPUB Since Darwin's day, we've been told that sexual monogamy comes naturally to our species. Mainstream science—as well as religious and cultural institutions—has maintained that men and women evolved in families in which a man's possessions and protection were exchanged for a woman's fertility and fidelity. But this narrative is collapsing. Fewer and fewer couples are getting married, and divorce rates keep climbing as adultery and flagging libido drag down even seemingly solid marriages. How can reality be reconciled with the accepted narrative? It can't be, according to renegade thinkers Christopher Ryan and Cacilda Jethå. While debunking almost everything we "know" about sex, they offer a bold alternative explanation in this provocative and brilliant book. Ryan and Jethå's central contention is that human beings evolved in egalitarian groups that shared food, child care, and, often, sexual partners. Weaving together convergent, frequently overlooked evidence from anthropology, archaeology, primatology, anatomy, and psychosexuality, the authors show how far from human nature monogamy really is. Human beings everywhere and in every era have confronted the same familiar, intimate situations in surprisingly different ways. The authors expose the ancient roots of human sexuality while pointing toward a more optimistic future illuminated by our innate capacities for love, cooperation, and generosity. With intelligence, humor, and wonder, Ryan and Jethå show how our promiscuous past haunts our struggles over monogamy, sexual orientation, and family dynamics. They explore why long-term fidelity can be so difficult for so many; why sexual passion tends to fade even as love deepens; why many middle-aged men risk everything for transient affairs with younger women; why homosexuality persists in the face of standard evolutionary logic; and what the human body reveals about the prehistoric origins of modern sexuality. In the tradition of the best historical and scientific writing, Sex at Dawn unapologetically upends unwarranted assumptions and unfounded conclusions while offering a revolutionary understanding of why we live and love as we do.
