Informative and mind-opening, this text uniquely provides a comprehensive overview of a range of non-western approaches to educational thought and practice. Its premise is that understanding the ways that other people educate their children--as well as what counts for them as "education"--may help readers to think more clearly about some of their own assumptions and values, and to become more open to alternative viewpoints about important educational matters. The approach is deliberately and profoundly pedagogical, based in the author's own teaching practice. Designed to be used in pre-service and in-service teacher education courses where substantial critical discussion and debate are encouraged, the text is enhanced by Questions for Discussion and Reflection in each chapter. Updates and Features of the Fourth Edition - NEW! Chapter 2 exploring key features of the 'western educational tradition', and information about the contemporary educational systems in different countries - NEW! Chapter 10 on traditional educational thought and practice in Oceania, with special focus on the Maori in New Zealand, the Hawai'ians, and the Australian Aboriginal peoples - Updated chapter on Africa includes fuller explanation of the diversity within the indigenous African experience, as well as several contemporary cases of state education in Africa - Updated Chapter 4 is designed to help non-Muslims to understand the Muslim educational heritage and the growing issue of Islamophobia - Exploration of Chinese education now includes a special emphasis on the thought of Confucius, the role of the imperial examination system, and the impact of political and economic changes in the 20th century - Updated analysis of contemporary educational practices in Hindu and Buddhist educational thought and practice and brief discussions of Jainism and Sikhism

This book explores communication, culture, and intercultural communication. The emphasis is on promoting understanding of and appreciation for the rich and varied perspectives encountered in intercultural communication opportunities. Interdisciplinary in nature, the book focuses on the need to develop self-understanding as a first step to intercultural understanding, and highlights the need for the intercultural state of mind to match our multicultural world, the difficulties inherent in the quest of such an objective, the excitement of challenges on the way and the rewards of the success that are sputtering with new energy and yet waiting to be discovered. Furthermore, the book represents an initial step in the process of building competencies which may facilitate effective communication in all types of cross-cultural settings. It gives a unique outlook of how people from differing cultural backgrounds communicate, in similar and different ways among themselves, and how they endeavor to communicate across cultures. The book grows out of the philosophy that developing better interpersonal, intercultural communication skills will profoundly benefit the seven billion people who share this planet and who increasingly interact with each other by producing some guidelines with which people can successfully cope with the realities of cultural diversity, the challenges of living in a multicultural world, the need to transcend the unpredictability of intercultural interactions, the accompanying fears that such interactions often encompass, and the feeling of joy and comfort in the discovery of cultural diversity.

Research on humor is carried out in a number of areas in psychology, including the cognitive (What makes something funny?), developmental (when do we develop a sense of humor?), and social (how is humor used in social interactions?) Although there is enough interest in the area to have spawned several societies, the literature is dispersed in a number of primary journals, with little in the way of integration of the material into a book. Dr. Martin is one of the best known researchers in the area, and his research goes across subdisciplines in psychology to be of wide appeal. This is a singly authored monograph that provides in one source, a summary of information researchers might wish to know about research into the psychology of humor. The material is scholarly, but the presentation of the material is suitable for people unfamiliar with the subject-making The Psychology of Humor suitable for use for advanced undergraduate and graduate level courses on the psychology of humor-which have not had a textbook source. 2007 AATH Book Award for Humor/Laughter Research category!

Was wissen wir heute über die neuronalen Strukturen und Prozesse, die normalem und gestörtem Erleben und Verhalten zu Grunde liegen? Was wissen wir über die neuronalen Grundlagen psychischer Störungen? Wie kommt es dazu, dass das Gehirn überhaupt psychische Störungen hervorbringt? Wie kann man mit psychologischen Mitteln neuronale Strukturen verändern? Was sind die neuronalen Mechanismen therapeutischer Veränderungen? Welche Schlussfolgerungen ergeben sich für die Praxis der Psychotherapie, wenn man ihre Problemstellungen und den therapeutischen Veränderungsprozess aus einer neurowissenschaftlichen Perspektive betrachtet? Die letzten 15 Jahre haben einen umwälzenden Erkenntnisprozess über die neuronalen Grundlagen unseres Erlebens und Verhaltens eingeleitet. Das Buch vermittelt die für die Psychotherapie relavanten Erkenntnisse der Neurowissenschaften. Es werden konkrete Leitlinien für eine neurowissenschaftlich informierte Therapiepraxis formuliert. Es wird gezeigt, dass man psychische Störungen nicht vom motivierten psychischen Geschehen trennen kann. Psychische Störungen sind Reaktionen auf schwerwiegende Verletzungen der menschlichen Grundbedürfnisse. Ihre neuronalen Grundlagen reichen über die Störung selbst hinaus und müssen mitbehandelt werden, um ein möglichst gutes Therapieergebnis zu erzielen. Daraus ergibt sich ein neues Bild von den Aufgabenstellungen und Möglichkeiten der Psychotherapie. Das Buch vermittelt Therapeuten, Studierenden, Lehrenden und Forschenden auf den Gebieten der Klinischen Psychologie, Psychotherapie und Psychiatrie das erforderliche Know-how für eine professionelle, neurowissenschaftlich fundierte Therapiepraxis.

Dieses Buch ist eines der berühmt-berüchtigsten Bücher und das meistzitierteste Referenzwerk über Werwölfe denn es gibt einen Überblick über alle Aspekte der Lykantrophie: Einen einfachen wissenschaftlichen Rückblick auf die Literatur über Gestaltwandel. Dann berichtet es über die Praktiken der Naturvölker, und führt das Thema weiter bis zu den Fallstudien von wirklichen Verbrechen und Verbrechern, Grabschändern, Kannibalen und Blutfetischisten - die letztlich alle durch ein dünnes Band mit der Lykanthropie verbunden sind. Es berichtet u.a. von folgenden Themen: Lykanthropie im Altertum - Der Werwolf bei den nordischen Völkern - Die Ursprünge des skandinavischen Werwolfs - Der Werwolf im Mittelalter - Eine Kammer des Grauens - Jean Grenier - Der Werwolf in der Folklore - Natürliche Ursachen der Lykanthropie - Die mythologischen Ursprünge des Werwolfsglaubens - Der Marschall De Retz (Gille de Rais) Teil I bis III - Ein galizischer Werwolf - Ein ungewöhnlicher Fall: Die menschliche Hyäne - Eine Predigt zum Thema Werwölfe

The Global Repositioning of Japanese Religions

The Global Repositioning of Japanese Religions: An Integrated Approach explores how Japanese religions respond to the relativizing effects of globalization, thereby repositioning themselves as global players. Organized around concrete case studies focusing on the engagement of Japanese Buddhism, Shinto, and several new religious movements in areas such as ecology, inter-religious dialogue, and politics, this book shows that the globalization of Japanese religions cannot be explained simply in terms of worldwide institutional expansion. Rather, it is a complex phenomenon conditioned by a set of pervasive factors: changes in consciousness, the perception of affinities and resonances at the systemic and cultural levels, processes of decontextualization, and a wide range of power issues including the re-enactment of cultural chauvinism. The author investigates these dynamics systematically with attention to broader theoretical questions, cross-cultural similarities, the definition of religion and the perils of ethnocentrism, in order to develop his Global Repositioning model, which constitutes an integrated approach to the study of Japanese religions under globalization. An empirically-grounded and theoretically-informed study of the effects of global trends on local religions, this book will appeal to scholars and students with interests in globalization, religious studies, Japanese studies, Hawaii, sociology, anthropology, and ecology.

Was vereint Google, Facebook, Apple, Microsoft, Monsanto, Uber und Airbnb? Sie alle sind Unternehmen, die Hardware und Software für andere bereitstellen, mit dem Ziel, möglichst geschlossene sozio-ökonomische Tech-Systeme zu schaffen. Google kontrolliert die Recherche, Facebook regiert Social Media und Amazon ist führend beim E-Commerce. Doch nicht nur Technologie-Unternehmen bauen Plattformen auf, auch Traditionsfirmen wie Siemens entwickeln ein cloudbasiertes Produktionssystem. Plattformen sind in der Lage, immense Daten zu gewinnen, zu nutzen und zu verkaufen – Monopolisierungstendenzen sind die "natürliche" Folge. Sind wir auf dem Weg in einen digitalen Monopolkapitalismus? Diese Streitschrift ist unerlässlich für alle, die verstehen wollen, wie die mächtigsten technologischen Unternehmen unserer Zeit die globale Ökonomie verändern.

Das Thema Materialität wird innerhalb feministischer Forschungen in den letzten Jahren erneut diskutiert. Vor dem Hintergrund des material turn widmet sich der Band aktuellen Auseinandersetzungen mit Materialität und Materialismus. Dabei sollen zum einen bestehende Konfliktfelder zwischen Diskurs und Materialität sowie Struktur, Handlungsfähigkeit und Subjektivität aus feministischer Perspektive aufgezeigt werden. Zum anderen strebt der Band an, Potenziale einer verbindenden Perspektive auf 'neue' und 'alte' Konzeptionen von Materialität und Materialismen innerhalb feministischer Theorien und Praxen kritisch auszuloten.
