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.

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.

The book Reflection contains a short memoir about the forceful containment of a young Jewish boy in Nazi concentration camps from during the Second World War. He is one of millions who went through the burning hell of concentration camps where for the first time he really met up with human grief, put-down, cruelty and fight for survival every day, hour and minute of life. The lesson of Holocaust about the nature of human evil, the need for vigilance and the importance of individual responsibility are needed now more than ever. We live in dangerous times when echoes of our past resonate everywhere. We are again in the world of war, in a world where madmen threaten America and Jews. The latter part of the book is a collection of published articles of contemporary political, economical, and social outlook. These writings are relevant in the present just like they were in the past.

Through the years Ive learned much from my Poetry Mentors, who are many, and a few Ive mentioned in this book. They taught me by example that, yes, I too can be a Poet. I too can be a member of this extraordinary extended family. A good dose of courage, and risk taking is whats needed to achieve some sort of compromising end. Frankly Ive learned little of this art from text books and class rooms. Its The Masters; the elder Poets who are my text book and class room, teaching me the refinement process of honing and polishing. What ever course my poetry and prose might take My Tutors assure me its a well worth the journey down every path, and side path. Visiting every side show I visit, and eventually discovering my style. I consider my poems and prose as my children. Like their parent I want them to do their best. Ive nurtured them, loved them, and cared for them. Ive held on to them long enough. Its time they go out on their own. You may be disappointed if you fail, but you are doomed if you dont try. Beverly Sills Milt Lemke, Jr.

Throughout the world, teacher education is once more in the spotlight. This book focuses on recent trends and experiences in England and Wales, where external pressures have caused tension between the technician model of teacher education, in which teachers learn primarily on the job alongside colleagues, and traditional forms of teacher education based in higher education institutions. This tension superficially replicates an old dichotomy between practice and theory. The contributors to this volume reflect on ideas and attempts to integrate theory and practice. Key questions and themes recur: the balance and relationship between work done in school "on the job" and work away from the workplace, such as in universities; teacher education as a partnership activity; and the need to critically examine the institutional, cultural, and historical context in which they work.

This graduate/advanced undergraduate textbook contains a systematic and elementary treatment of finite groups generated by reflections. The approach is based on fundamental geometric considerations in Coxeter complexes, and emphasizes the intuitive geometric aspects of the theory of reflection groups. Key features include: many important concepts in the proofs are illustrated in simple drawings, which give easy access to the theory; a large number of exercises at various levels of difficulty; some Euclidean geometry is included along with the theory of convex polyhedra; no prerequisites are necessary beyond the basic concepts of linear algebra and group theory; and a good index and bibliography The exposition is directed at advanced undergraduates and first-year graduate students.
