Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Love Vs. Rituals & Provocation by Samra Kiyani The novel Love Vs. Rituals & Provocation is a stirring and thought-provoking study of how the social taboos and rituals affect the life of human beings. The author has brilliantly and very skillfully illustrated different forms of harassment and provocation and their impact on females both in the social setup and the workplaces where they are imperiled to serve. She has tried to establish that strength of character, determination and a sincere smooth upright sailing defeat the so-called rituals and provocation. True love, guided by clarity of mind, makes the otherwise vulnerable lot strong and resilient to combat all kinds of vices, seductions and immoral advances. The story is a bold, frank and deep insight into the societal attributes and manifestations which have affected, in the recent decades, a rapid transformation in human behaviors; a rejection of age-old customs, traditions and sarcastically called rituals; crumbling of the established moral code; disintegration of the social order; collapse of the niceties and mutual respect between male-female relations in their sober, serene and sublime diversity; and development of human animalism. All of this has resulted from socio-cultural imbalances. The book is in fact an unpleasant journey through a societal order rampant with hypocrisy, dualism and incongruity between moral standards – established through the ages and now set and developed by the societal agents of change.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: A fiancé deceit leads a practical lady to embrace her true passion in this Regency romance by the author of The Devilish Marquis. Having never seen a love match that didn’t end in disaster, Lady Maryann Rivington is determined to wed for practical reasons. So the last thing she wants to hear is a slanderous accusation against her carefully-chosen betrothed. She can't imagine why the handsome stranger who approached her in the Botanic Gardens is so intent on preventing her marriage. But she is so befuddled by the passion in his eyes that she no longer feels rational in the least. Major Stephen Fant spent months gathering evidence against the man who had destroyed his brother, and now the scoundrel is finally within his reach. Though he knows it could jeopardize everything, he simply has to warn his quarry's beautiful fiancée that her betrothed is under investigation. After all, Lady Maryann is far too delectable for the likes of the lowly Lord Tammadge. And as the major gazes into her wide gray eyes, he realizes he'd do anything to keep her safe—except stay away.

Download or read book Dictionary of Early American Philosophers written by John R. Shook and published by Bloomsbury Publishing USA. This book was released on 2012-04-05 with total page 1288 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The Dictionary of Early American Philosophers, which contains over 400 entries by nearly 300 authors, provides an account of philosophical thought in the United States and Canada between 1600 and 1860. The label of "philosopher" has been broadly applied in this Dictionary to intellectuals who have made philosophical contributions regardless of academic career or professional title. Most figures were not academic philosophers, as few such positions existed then, but they did work on philosophical issues and explored philosophical questions involved in such fields as pedagogy, rhetoric, the arts, history, politics, economics, sociology, psychology, medicine, anthropology, religion, metaphysics, and the natural sciences. Each entry begins with biographical and career information, and continues with a discussion of the subject's writings, teaching, and thought. A cross-referencing system refers the reader to other entries. The concluding bibliography lists significant publications by the subject, posthumous editions and collected works, and further reading about the subject.

Download or read book Dictionary Of Modern American Philosophers written by John R. Shook and published by Bloomsbury Publishing. This book was released on 2005-05-15 with total page 2000 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The Dictionary of Modern American Philosophers includes both academic and non-academic philosophers, and a large number of female and minority thinkers whose work has been neglected. It includes those intellectuals involved in the development of psychology, pedagogy, sociology, anthropology, education, theology, political science, and several other fields, before these disciplines came to be considered distinct from philosophy in the late nineteenth century. Each entry contains a short biography of the writer, an exposition and analysis of his or her doctrines and ideas, a bibliography of writings, and suggestions for further reading. While all the major post-Civil War philosophers are present, the most valuable feature of this dictionary is its coverage of a huge range of less well-known writers, including hundreds of presently obscure thinkers. In many cases, the Dictionary of Modern American Philosophers offers the first scholarly treatment of the life and work of certain writers. This book will be an indispensable reference work for scholars working on almost any aspect of modern American thought.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Maybe Christianity is actually true. Maybe it is what believers say it is. But at least two problems make the thoughtful person hesitate. First, there are so many other options. How could one possibly make one's way through them to anything like a rational and confident conclusion? Second, why do so many people choose to be Christian in the face of so many reasons not to be Christian? Yes, many people grow up in Christian homes and in societies, but many more do not. Yet Christianity has become the most popular religion in the world. Why? This book begins by taking on the initial challenge as it outlines a process: how to think about religion in a responsible way, rather than settling for such soft vagaries as "faith" and "feeling". It then clears away a number of misunderstandings from the basic story of the Christian religion, misunderstandings that combine to domesticate this startling narrative and thus to repel reasonable people who might otherwise be intrigued. The second half of the book then looks at Christian commitment positively and negatively. Why do two billion find this religion to be persuasive, thus making it the most popular "explanation of everything" in human history? At the same time, how does Christianity respond to the fact that so many people find it utterly implausible, especially because so many Christians insist that theirs is the only way to God and because of the problem of evil that seems to undercut everything Christianity asserts? Grounded in scholarship but never ponderous, Can I Believe? refuses to dodge the hard questions as it welcomes the intelligent inquirer to give Christianity at least one good look.

Book excerpt: Author Fiona Gobin wrote this book during a tumultuous time in her life where the hand of God was evident. It was during these dark days she found the light within. In The Light Within, she shares her story while helping others illuminate their own life. Through Biblical examples and personal testimony, she communicates a variety of faith-filled messages: • understand life is a precious gift and should not be wasted; • remember God’s loving-kindness and tender mercies are new every day; • see the goodness that surrounds you; • look within and recognize the beauty that exists so you can truly appreciate the things and people in your life; • discover your purpose by listening to the small voice within that speaks and directs you; and • look at each day as an opportunity to fulfill your purpose, your God-given destiny that was birthed before you were born. The Light Within encourages you to step out and shine; embrace each day with gratitude; be resilient and have perseverance, willpower, and self-control; and have an inner strength that initiates inner peace, forgiveness, healing, and restoration.
