Addiction and Responsibility

FREEDownload : Addiction and Responsibility

Jeffrey Poland, George Graham, "Addiction and Responsibility"
English | 2011 | ISBN-10: 0262015501 | 320 pages | PDF | 18 MB

Addiction and Responsibility
Addictive behavior threatens not just the addict's happiness and health but also the welfare and well-being of others. It represents a loss of self-control and a variety of other cognitive impairments and behavioral deficits. An addict may say, "I couldn't help myself." But questions arise: are we responsible for our addictions? And what responsibilities do others have to help us? This volume offers a range of perspectives on addiction and responsibility and how the two are bound together. Distinguished contributors — from theorists to clinicians, from neuroscientists and psychologists to philosophers and legal scholars — discuss these questions in essays using a variety of conceptual and investigative tools.

Some contributors offer models of addiction-related phenomena, including theories of incentive sensitization, ego-depletion, and pathological affect; others address such traditional philosophical questions as free will and agency, mind-body, and other minds. Two essays, written by scholars who were themselves addicts, attempt to integrate first-person phenomenological accounts with the third-person perspective of the sciences. Contributors distinguish among moral responsibility, legal responsibility, and the ethical responsibility of clinicians and researchers. Taken together, the essays offer a forceful argument that we cannot fully understand addiction if we do not also understand responsibility.

Madness and Civilization: A History of Insanity in the Age of Reason

FREEDownload : Madness and Civilization: A History of Insanity in the Age of Reason

Michel Foucault, "Madness and Civilization: A History of Insanity in the Age of Reason"
English | ISBN: 0415040183, 0415255392 | 1988 | 320 pages | EPUB | 1 MB

Madness and Civilization: A History of Insanity in the Age of Reason
In recent years the question of madness and how to define it has become the centre of a great deal of discussion. This is the question the distinguished French psychologist and philosopher Michel Foucault seeks to answer by studying madness from 1500 to 1800 – from the Middle Ages when insanity was considered part of everyday life and fools and madmen walked the streets, to the point when these people began to be considered a threat, asylums were built for the first time, and a wall was erected between the insane and the rest of humanity.

Contemporary Views on Architecture and Representations in Phonology (Current Studies in Linguistics)

FREEDownload : Contemporary Views on Architecture and Representations in Phonology (Current Studies in Linguistics)

Contemporary Views on Architecture and Representations in Phonology (Current Studies in Linguistics) by Eric Raimy
English | 2009 | ISBN: 026218270X | 428 Pages | PDF | 2 MB
The essays in this volume address foundational questions in phonology that cut across different schools of thought within the discipline.

Contemporary Views on Architecture and Representations in Phonology (Current Studies in Linguistics)
The theme of modularity runs through them all, however, and these essays demonstrate the benefits of the modular approach to phonology, either investigating interactions among distinct modules or developing specific aspects of representation within a particular module. Although the contributors take divergent views on a range of issues, they agree on the importance of representations and questions of modularity in phonology. Their essays address the status of phonological features, syllable theory, metrical structure, the architecture of the phonological component, and interaction among components of phonology. In the early 1990s the rise of Optimality Theory which suggested that pure computation would solve the problems of representations and modularity eclipsed the centrality of these issues for phonology. This book is unique in offering a coherent view of phonology that is not Optimality Theory based. The essays in this book, all by distinguished phonologists, demonstrate that computation and representation are inherently linked; they do not deny Optimality Theory, but attempt to move the field of phonology beyond it.

Architecture in Continuity: Building in the Islamic World Today (Aga Khan Award) by Sherban Cantacuzino
English | 1985 | ISBN: 0893811874 | 194 Pages | PDF | 105 MB
Architecture in Continuity celebrates recent projects throughout the Islamic world that most successfully preserve indigenous forms while providing for the future.

Architecture in Continuity: Building in the Islamic World Today (Aga Khan Award)
It honors the insight, imagination, and skill that brought these projects into physical reality. The Aga Khan Awards Foundation's attention to the extraordinary effort required to develop an architecture both practical and spiritual is dramatically reflected in this volume, the second of the Aga Khan Award for Architecture series. In the words of the Foundation, the architects represented here provide environments in which people can "live, work, and practice the precepts of faith harmoniously and to the fullest." The eleven projects– found in nine countries from Mali to Pakistan, from Yugoslavia to Malaysia– range from hotels to mosques, from housing to an impressive air terminal for pilgrims to Mecca. The prizewinners show a deep respect for tradition, displayed in the historic buildings restored for contemporary purposes. Everyone connected with each project– the architect, client, and builder, the local craftsmen, artisans, and consultants– is honored for contributing to an integrity of purpose, to a spirit that is of and for the people. This collection of color photographs by some of the world's finest photographers exquisitely depicts the Award-winning buildings. The introduction and three essays, by distinguished architects and architectural historians, explore the projects in terms of the pressures confronting emerging Muslim countries, the influence of the Western postindustrial world and traditional Muslim forms and values.
