Christopher Peacocke presents a philosophical theory of subjects of consciousness, together with a theory of the nature of first person representation of such a subject of consciousness. He develops a new treatment of subjects, distinct from previous theories, under which subjects were regarded either as constructs from mental events, or fundamentally embodied, or Cartesian egos. In contrast, his theory of the first person integrates with the positive treatment ofsubjects--and it contributes to the explanation of various distinctive first person phenomena in the theory of thought and knowledge. Peacocke brings his points to bear on the contributions to theseissues made by Hume, Kant, Frege, Wittgenstein, and Strawson, and then goes on to distinguish and characterize three varieties of self-consciousness, which are key to explaining features of our knowledge, social relations, and emotional lives. The theses of The Mirror of the World are of importance not only for philosophy, but also for psychology, the arts, and anywhere else that the self and self-representation loom large.

The Mirror of the Worlds is the second in David Drake's Crown of the Isles trilogy, which will conclude the epic Lord of the Isles series. The Fortress of Glass began the tale of how the new kingdom of the Isles is finally brought into being by the group of heroes and heroines who have been central to all the books in the series: Prince Garric, heir to the throne of the Isles, his consort Liane, his sister Sharina, her herculean sweetheart Cashel, and his sister Ilna. The powers of magic in the Isles have flooded to a thousand-year peak, and even local magicians can perform powerful spells normally beyond their control. Fantastic forces from all angles threaten, trying to keep Garric and his companions apart to thwart the reunification of the Isles. Now the world itself has suffered a magical upheaval. The ocean has receded and the Isles have become the higher ground of a newly formed continent. But the new continent is a patchwork of geography from the dispast and future, peopled by creatures from all times and places. Garric and his companions must now struggle for the survival of humanity. At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.

In the Mirror of the Third World

Capitalist Development in Modern Europe

In Marx's familiar dictum, the more-developed country shows the less developed an image of its own future. Turning this idea upside down, In the Mirror of the Third World looks to the contemporary Third World for a reflection of European history. The resulting view challenges standard accounts of European social, economic, and political development. Sandra Halperin's analysis of the European experience begins where studies of Third World development often start: considering the legacies of colonial domination. Europe also had a colonial past, she reminds us, and the states of Europe, like those of today's Third World, were the product of colonialism and imperialism. From this starting point, Halperin traces features characteristic of Third World development through the history of European capitalism: enclave economies oriented to foreign markets; weak middle classes; alliances among the state, traditional landowning elites, and new industrial classes; unstable and partial democracy; sharp inequalities; and increasing poverty--all as much a part of European society on the eve of World War I as they are of developing countries today. Halperin also emphasizes the emergence of a militant, literal religion in Europe and its critical role in the class struggles of the nineteenth century.

Is todayâ??s thinking conditioned by body-mind dualism? A rebellion against the biological order seems to have silently infiltrated our world view. Suicide bombers appear to share a fascination with destruction with writers such as Mishima, Pasolini and Foucault. A liberation from the body to re-establish a possibly mystical union of soul and cosmos and an assertion of the mindâ??s omnipotence appear to be common features of forms of behavior that seem to be taken for granted in contemporary thought. Is the new misogyny, which rejects motherhood in the name of feminism, contributing in any way to these trends? This review of our society by a woman psychoanalyst â?? a non-medic and graduate of the Institut d'Ã?tudes Politiques in Paris â?? presents a sharp and rigorous analysis of the strange and violent mechanisms that are erupting in the world today.

Zhao Jinglun, a native of China who spent a third of his life in the United States, leads you on a fascinating journey focusing on Sino-U.S. relations and other world issues. Whether it’s Barack Obama’s bid to gain more leverage in the Asia-Pacific region, the disturbing beginnings of a surveillance state, or the drone war being waged by the United States on multiple fronts, he tackles the issues that other commentators shy away from and poses solutions to bolster relations and resolve conflicts. He also exposes the true nature of Shinzo Abe’s right-wing Japanese government, its brazen denial of Japan’s war crimes, and its undisguised plan to revive Japanese militarism. You’ll also learn about other major world issues, including the civil war in Syria, the military coup in Egypt, Mali and the fight for Africa, and other conflicts that will shape the future of the world we live in. His views often differ sharply from those promoted by his home country or leaders in the United States, but he offers keen insights on finding common ground by learning from the past and looking into The World Mirror.
