Tamara, 27, wirft kurz vor dem Jahrtausendwechsel ihren Job hin und verbringt ihre Tage ziellos und eingehüllt in meditativen Zigarettenrauch, bis sie eines Tages ihren Freund auf eine Geschäftsreise nach Wien begleitet und dort unverhofft in ein prickelndes Liebesabenteuer stolpert. Doch sie ist dem charismatischen Kosmopolit Johannes Steiner emotional nicht gewachsen und so führt sie die Liebe und weitere Schicksalsschläge auf direktem Weg in die Kurklinik von Professor Alexander Maywald. Aus der anfänglichen Abneigung gegen den Chef, seine Klinik und die Mitpatienten, entwickeln sich in einem amüsanten Plot, Verständnis und Zuneigung, bis eine rundum erneuerte Tamara vor der Entscheidung ihres Lebens steht.

Theological Reflection and Education for Ministry

The Search for Integration in Theology
Author: Professor John E Paver
Publisher: Ashgate Publishing, Ltd.

Category: Philosophy
Page: 198

A major and continuing problem for theological education and the practice of Christian ministry is how to best achieve a genuine integration between theory and practice, theology and experience. The key claim of this book is that theological reflection, beginning with experience, is a method of integration and that pastoral supervision is a vehicle for theological reflection. In establishing this claim, John Paver demonstrates that the model and method have potential to be a catalyst for reform within theological colleges and seminaries. Three different theological reflection models are developed and critiqued in this book, and their capacity to be developed in particular contexts is explored. This book does not stop at ministry, cultural and personal integration, but is bold enough to make recommendations for structural integration within the theological institution.

On Reflection

An Essay on Technology, Education, and the Status of Thought in the 21st Century
Author: Ellen Rose

In On Reflection, Ellen Rose seeks to initiate a much-needed discussion about what reflection is and should be. The word crops up repeatedly in the discourse of teaching and learning, but its meaning is often vague. True reflection--deep, sustained thought that takes place in conditions of solitude and silence--has been undermined by new technologies that speed up the flow of information and the pace of life, as well as by contemporary schooling that unreflectively embraces technological and market imperatives in the name of outcomes, efficiencies, and the preparation of a global workforce. Drawing on a wide range of thinkers, past and present, Rose outlines the important role reflective thought can play in the classroom and in the world at large, and makes a powerful case for slowing down and returning to our thoughts.

Philosophers have warned of the perils of a life spent without reflection, but what constitutes reflective inquiry - and why it’s necessary in our lives - can be an elusive concept. Synthesizing ideas from minds as diverse as John Dewey and Paulo Freire, theHandbook of Reflection and Reflective Inquiry presents reflective thought in its most vital aspects, not as a fanciful or nostalgic exercise, but as a powerful means of seeing familiar events anew, encouraging critical thinking and crucial insight, teaching and learning. In its opening pages, two seasoned educators, Maxine Greene and Lee Shulman, discuss reflective inquiry as a form of active attention (Thoreau’s "wide-awakeness"), an act of consciousness, and a process by which people can understand themselves, their work (particularly in the form of life projects), and others. Building on this foundation, the Handbook analyzes through the work of 40 internationally oriented authors: - Definitional issues concerning reflection, what it is and is not; - Worldwide social and moral conditions contributing to the growing interest in reflective inquiry in professional education; - Reflection as promoted across professional educational domains, including K-12 education, teacher education, occupational therapy, and the law; - Methods of facilitating and scaffolding reflective engagement; - Current pedagogical and research practices in reflection; - Approaches to assessing reflective inquiry. Educators across the professions as well as adult educators, counselors and psychologists, and curriculum developers concerned with adult learning will find the Handbook of Reflection and Reflective Inquiry an invaluable teaching tool for challenging times.

On Reflection

Hilary Kornblith presents a new account of the role of reflection in establishing knowledge, in reasoning, in freedom, and in normativity. Philosophers have frequently extolled the value of reflective self-examination, and a wide range of philosophers have argued that reflection can help to solve a number of significant philosophical problems. Kornblith argues, to the contrary, that reflection cannot solve any of them. More than this, he suggests that the attemptto solve these problems by appealing to reflection saddles us with a mystical view of the powers of reflective self-examination. Recognition of this fact motivates a search for a demystified view ofthe nature of reflection, which he offers in the final chapter.

What are They Saying about Theological Reflection?

"Theological reflection is a form of theologizing that begins with lived experience, correlates this with the sources of Christian faith and draws out concrete implications for praxis. Robert Kinast finds five distinct types of theological reflection from within this common form: ministerial, spiritual wisdom, feminist, inculturation, and practical theology" "Each of these styles is analyzed in terms of the type of experience it favors, the way it connects this experience to theology and what sort of praxis it envisions. The end result is a succinct overview of this wide-ranging and diverse approach to theology."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc. All Rights Reserved

Theological Reflection demonstrates the process of discovery that is at the heart of theological education 'learning by reflecting on experience. Theological reflection as presented in this book was developed to support a program of theological education called Education for Ministry (EFM). Its roots are both biblical and traditional, presenting those engaged in theology with the educational context for theological reflection as it has been developed by EFM over more than twenty-five years. It provides a way of learning theology so that participants can develop harmony between life's experience, the world, and the Christian faith.

Critical Reflection

Generating Theory from Practice : the Graduating Social Work Student Experience

Educating students for professional practice is both complex and challenging. Striking the right balance between 'theory and practice' and 'thinking and doing' remains a cornerstone of effective teaching and learning. In the last two decades, social work education has drawn from critical perspectives based on understandings of power imbalances that perpetuate inequalities in social structures and relationships. These perspectives go to the heart of social work practice in the contemporary context where critical reflection is recognized as a useful, meaningful approach used by practitioners to examine aspects of their practice and redevelop practice theory.Giving a voice to the student experience, this edited collection fills a gap in the literature about the student experience of critical reflection as a tool for learning and practice. The papers have been written by final year social work students and demonstrate the application of a critical framework to incidents selected from their field education placements. This has resulted in knowledge building and personalized meaning for students in transition to becoming new graduate social workers.The collection has relevance to social work students, educators and other human service professions where critical thinking is a fundamental part of education for practice.

Orientation of Single Crystals by Back-reflection Laue Pattern Simulation

Laue-grams are the easiest X-ray diffraction patterns that can be obtained and are very useful for orienting single crystals and finding out the symmetry of a projection. Despite the simplicity of the experimental equipment, the orientation work is a costly and time consuming process. It would be a great advantage to be able to simulate any kind of Laue-gram and to identify an unknown crystal orientation, including anisotropic ones.This book presents the complete numerical algorithms for simulation of X-ray back-reflection Laue-grams by evaluating the main factors that affect the intensities of the Laue-gram spots. To demonstrate the potential of the computational procedures developed, an example of every crystal system is shown. A PC diskette is included with this book, to be used for simulation and indexing of any back-reflection Laue pattern.

The author coherently presents the physical concepts, mathematical details and methodology for optimizing results of reservoir modeling, under conditions of isotropy and anisotropy. The most common form of anisotropy – the transverse isotropy, is dealt with in detail. Besides, practical aspects in reservoir engineering – such as interval isotropic or anisotropic properties of layered media; identifying lithology, pore-fluid types and saturation; and determining crack/fracture-orientations and density - form the core of discussions. This book incorporates significant new developments in isotropic and anisotropic reflection processing, while organizing them to improve the interpretation of seismic reflection data and optimizing the modeling of hydrocarbon reservoirs. The text contains exercises and problems, and solutions are provided for the exercises. This book is written primarily for graduate/postgraduate students and research workers in geophysics.
