Автор: Kagan Jerome Название: On Being Human: Why Mind Matters ISBN: 0300217366 ISBN-13(EAN): 9780300217360 Издательство: Yale University Press Рейтинг: Цена: 18050 T Наличие на складе: Поставка под заказ. Описание: In this thought-provoking book, psychologist Jerome Kagan urges readers to sally forth from their usual comfort zones. He ponders a series of important nodes of debate while challenging us to examine what we know and why we know it. Most critically he presents an elegant argument for functions of mind that cannot be replaced with sentences about brains while acknowledging that mind emerges from brain activity. Kagan relies on the evidence to argue that thoughts and emotions are distinct from their biological and genetic bases. In separate chapters he deals with the meaning of words, kinds of knowing, the powerful influence of social class, the functions of education, emotion, morality, and other issues. And without fail he sheds light on these ideas while remaining honest to their complexity. Thoughtful and eloquent, Kagan s "On Being Human" places him firmly in the tradition of Renaissance essayist Michel de Montaigne, whose appealing blend of intellectual insight, personal storytelling, and careful judgment has attracted readers for centuries."
Автор: Kassahun Tiziana Panizza Название: A Book on Urban Thinking: Architecture & Human Rights ISBN: 372120980X ISBN-13(EAN): 9783721209808 Издательство: Thames & Hudson Рейтинг: Цена: 23820 T Наличие на складе: Поставка под заказ. Описание: The striking inequalities in living conditions in today's cities and metropolises reveal one of the greatest humanitarian challenges of our time. Ascertaining that architecture can never be neutral, those involved in this field of design are called on to recognize and to act on their social responsibility - not only - in the city-making process. Their work should therefore not be limited to creating living space as questions of the distribution of resources, so closely interwoven with architectural design, must also play a role. This book is conceived as a collage of narratives, photos and critical conversations on the link between human rights and architecture. In its hybrid form, all of the people involved at every level are given a voice and encouraged to question whether the architecture of the towns, streets and buildings for which they are responsible contributes to the protection and advancement of human rights. The ultimate goal is that the consideration of human rights become an architect's powerful tool for better and fairer urban planning.
