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.

Between Urban and Wild: Reflections from Colorado

FREEDownload : Between Urban and Wild: Reflections from Colorado

Andrea M. Jones, "Between Urban and Wild: Reflections from Colorado"
English | ISBN: 1609381874 | 2013 | 192 pages | PDF | 1 MB

Between Urban and Wild: Reflections from Colorado
In her calm, carefully reasoned perspective on place, Andrea Jones focuses on the familiar details of country life balanced by the larger responsibilities that come with living outside an urban boundary. Neither an environmental manifesto nor a prodevelopment defense, Between Urban and Wild operates partly on a practical level, partly on a naturalist's level. Jones reflects on life in two homes in the Colorado Rockies, first in Fourmile Canyon in the foothills west of Boulder, then near Cap Rock Ridge in central Colorado. Whether negotiating territory with a mountain lion, balancing her observations of the predatory nature of pygmy owls against her desire to protect a nest of nuthatches, working to reduce her property's vulnerability to wildfire while staying alert to its inherent risks during fire season, or decoding the distinct personalities of her horses, she advances the tradition of nature writing by acknowledging the effects of sprawl on a beloved landscape.

Although not intended as a manual for landowners, Between Urban and Wild nonetheless offers useful and engaging perspectives on the realities of settling and living in a partially wild environment. Throughout her ongoing journey of being home, Jones's close observations of the land and its native inhabitants are paired with the suggestion that even small landholders can act to protect the health of their properties. Her brief meditations capture and honor the subtleties of the natural world while illuminating the importance of working to safeguard it.

Probing the contradictions of a lifestyle that burdens the health of the land that she loves, Jones's writing is permeated by her gentle, earnest conviction that living at the urban-wild interface requires us to set aside self-interest, consider compromise, and adjust our expectations and habits-to accommodate our surroundings rather than force them to accommodate us.

Student-Designed Games: Strategies for Promoting Creativity, Cooperaton, and Skill Development

FREEDownload : Student-Designed Games: Strategies for Promoting Creativity, Cooperaton, and Skill Development

Student-Designed Games: Strategies for Promoting Creativity, Cooperaton, and Skill Development by Peter Hastie
English | 2010 | ISBN: 0736085904 | 192 pages | PDF | 6 MB
Students love games, but unfortunately, games are often taught in ways that alienate or exclude less-skilled students. Or worse yet, students find the games boring because they have no voice in how the games are played.

Student-Designed Games: Strategies for Promoting Creativity, Cooperaton, and Skill Development
Student-Designed Games: Strategies for Promoting Creativity, Cooperation, and Skill Development helps teachers and youth leaders make games fun again. This innovative, step-by-step guide helps students from early elementary school through college design their own games. In doing so, students

* develop tactical understanding as they design games;

* feel ownership and are more motivated to take part in the games;

* feel included because they have a voice in the scoring, equipment, space, and rules, all of which are limited only by their imagination and available resources; and

* learn how to respect competitors and work toward common goals with partners.

Through Student-Designed Games, students discover why rules are important, work cooperatively through the creative process, solve problems, and teach each other as well as their teachers. In games-making units, students design games within parameters presented by the teacher. They can adapt games they already play by changing various elements, or, with the help of game templates, create unique games that present new tactical problems that players must solve or overcome.

The games can all be connected to standards for becoming physically educated as defined by local, national, and international organizations and include ready-to-use assessments so that teachers can evaluate both the students and the games. The book also includes rubrics to help students understand their responsibilities during the game-making process and to judge the quality of the games they have created.

Student-Designed Games is the perfect book to help students be inclusive and creative, learn basic game forms, improve skills, and have great fun in devising their own games. Teachers will be aided in managing their classes through the detailed management strategies aimed at including their students' time on task. As such, Student-Designed Games is a valuable addition to teachers' class resources.

Death Talk: The Case Against Euthanasia and Physician-Assisted Suicide

FREEDownload : Death Talk: The Case Against Euthanasia and Physician-Assisted Suicide

Margaret Somerville, "Death Talk: The Case Against Euthanasia and Physician-Assisted Suicide"
English | ISBN: 0773522018 | 2002 | 454 pages | PDF | 28 MB

Death Talk: The Case Against Euthanasia and Physician-Assisted Suicide
"Death Talk" asks why, when our society has rejected euthanasia for over two thousand years, are we now considering legalising it? Has euthanasia been promoted by deliberately confusing it with other ethically acceptable acts? What is the relation between pain relief treatments that could shorten life and euthanasia? How do journalistic values and media ethics affect the public's perception of euthanasia? What impact would the legalisation of euthanasia have on concepts of human rights, human responsibilities, and human ethics? And, can we imagine teaching young physicians how to put their patients to death? There are vast ethical, legal, and social differences between natural death and euthanasia. In "Death Talk", Margaret Somerville argues that legalising euthanasia would cause irreparable harm to society's value of respect for human life, which in secular societies is carried primarily by the institutions of law and medicine. Death has always been a central focus of the discussion that we engage in as individuals and as a society in searching for meaning in life. Moreover, we accommodate the inevitable reality of death into the living of our lives by discussing it, that is, through "Death Talk." Until the last twenty years this discussion occurred largely as part of the practice of organised religion. Today, in industrialised western societies, the euthanasia debate provides a context for such discussion and is part of the search for a new societal-cultural paradigm. Seeking to balance the "Death Talk" articulated in the euthanasia debate with "life talk," Somerville identifies the very serious harms for individuals and society that would result from accepting euthanasia. A sense of the unfolding euthanasia debate is captured through the inclusion of Somerville's responses to or commentaries on several other authors' contributions.

Contested Spaces: Abortion Clinics, Women’s Shelters and Hospitals

FREEDownload : Contested Spaces: Abortion Clinics, Women’s Shelters and Hospitals

Lori A. Brown, "Contested Spaces: Abortion Clinics, Women's Shelters and Hospitals"
English | ISBN: 1409437418 | 2013 | 200 pages | PDF | 24 MB

Contested Spaces: Abortion Clinics, Women’s Shelters and Hospitals
In this book, Lori Brown examines the relationship between space, defined physically, legally and legislatively, and how these factors directly impact the spaces of abortion. It analyses how various political entities shape the physical landscapes of inclusion and exclusion to reproductive healthcare access, and questions what architecture's responsibilities are in respect to this spatial conflict.Employing writing, drawing and mapping methodologies, this interdisciplinary project explores restrictions and legislatures which directly influence abortion policy in the US, Mexico and Canada. It questions how these legal rulings produce spatial complexities and why architecture isn't more culturally and spatially engaged with these spaces. In Mexico, where abortion is fully legal only in Mexico City during the first trimester, women must travel vast distances and undergo extreme conditions in order to access the procedure. Conservative state governments continue to make abortion a severely punishable crime. In Canada, there are nowhere near the cultural and religious stigmas to abortion as in the US and Mexico. Completely legal and without restrictions, Canada offers an important contrast to the ongoing abortion issues within the US and Mexico. Researching the spatial implications of such a politicized space, this book expands beyond a study of abortion clinic and includes other spaces such as women's shelters and hospitals that require multiple levels of secured spaces in order to discuss the spatial ramifications of access and security within spaces that are highly personal, private, and sometimes secret or even hidden.In questioning what architecture's responsibility is in these spatial conflicts, the book looks at how what architecture 'does' can be used to reconsider the spaces and security around such contested places, and ultimately suggests what design's potential impact might be. In doing so, it shows how architecture's role might be redefined within social and spatial practices.
