This booklet offers excerpts from three lectures by Rudolf Steiner on ancient Greek consciousness. The lectures are disparate: they date from 1911, 1921 and 1922, and they are all different in style. But they are unified by providing extraordinary insight into that consciousness which is so very different from ours. To say even that Steiner rewrote history would be an understatement: it would be more accurate to say that he added a whole new dimension to historiography as such. The evolution of consciousness as Steiner describes it transcends any mere history of ideas, arguing that not only the content, but the very structure of consciousness, the subject-object relationship itself, has evolved radically over time. Steiner’s full account is dispersed across numerous volumes, but, fortuna...

LSAT IntelliPREP: Effective Preparatory Practices to Ace LSAT

by Intelligent+

The LSAT is approved by the American Bar Association and uses three kinds of questions for measuring your skills viz. verbal reasoning, analytical thinking, and critical reading. Is the test really hard? Well, the easier the LSAT test is, the better your scores will be. In the case of LSAT, if you score 180, it is equivalent to getting 99.97 percent. However, in the LSAT, getting 89 correct answers is considered as a good score. It also indicates that LSAT is a tough test, generally speaking. LSAT is scored on a scale of 120 to 180, and the average score is 150. However, in case you are looking to get admitted into the top twenty-five law schools in the United States, you will have to score in excess of 160. There are around 101 questions in every test, and every query answered correctly m...

THE GODLESS MEN

by Matt Cutugno

In the classic American Western-style, veteran author Matt Cutugno weaves a riveting story of two men struggling to survive in the days following the Civil War in his new novel, THE GODLESS MEN. The time is 1868. Three short years after the awful destruction caused by the war. The place is the Kansas-Missouri border. A land savaged by years of bloody fighting.

Two men share a common past. First as boys riding for the famed Pony Express; then as soldiers bravely serving opposing sides in battle. One blue. One gray. When the war was over, they each sought new lives. One became the sheriff of Lawrence, Kansas. He is a good, though lonely, man who sought peace in troubling times. The other, a rebel from Missouri, now a hired gun, who found himself a wanted man, accused of terrible...

How Generations Remember: Conflicting Histories and Shared Memories in Post-War Bosnia and Herzegovina (Global Diversities)

by Monika Palmberger

This book is open access under a CC BY 4.0 license.This book provides a profound insight into post-war Mostar, and the memories of three generations of this Bosnian-Herzegovinian city. Drawing on several years of ethnographic fieldwork, it offers a vivid account of how personal and collective memories are utterly intertwined, and how memories across the generations are reimagined and ‘rewritten’ following great socio-political change. Focusing on both Bosniak-dominated East Mostar and Croat-dominated West Mostar, it demonstrates that, even in this ethno-nationally divided city with its two divergent national historiographies, generation-specific experiences are crucial in how people ascribe meaning to past events. It argues that the dramatic and often brutal transformations that Bosnia...

For Anne Lister, 1817 was a year of new beginnings and farewells to her old life. The coded entries for this year reveal decisions and events which form the rest of her adult life.

Above all she would avoid gossips and parties in order to live a quiet, dignified, self-sufficient life and regain the respect of her aunt and uncle who ran the Lister estates.

A History of Force Feeding: Hunger Strikes, Prisons and Medical Ethics, 1909–1974

by Ian Miller

This book is Open Access under a CC BY license. It is the first monograph-length study of the force-feeding of hunger strikers in English, Irish and Northern Irish prisons. It examines ethical debates that arose throughout the twentieth century when governments authorised the force-feeding of imprisoned suffragettes, Irish republicans and convict prisoners. It also explores the fraught role of prison doctors called upon to perform the procedure. Since the Home Office first authorised force-feeding in 1909, a number of questions have been raised about the procedure. Is force-feeding safe? Can it kill? Are doctors who feed prisoners against their will abandoning the medical ethical norms of their profession? And do state bodies use prison doctors to help tackle political dissidence at times...

Second, the ambition of the book is to use examples from everyday life and fiction to debate a range of dignity interpretations supplemented by philosophical and theological theories.

The Story of Prophet Adam In Islam

by Muhammad Vandestra

Prophet Adam is believed to have been the first human being and (Prophet) on Earth, in Islam. Adam's role as the father of the human race is looked upon by Muslims with reverence. Muslims also refer to his wife, Hawa (Eve), as the "mother of mankind". Muslims see Prophet Adam as the first Muslim, as the Qur'an states that all the Prophets preached the same faith of Islam (Submission to One God).The Qur'an and hadith give the same account of the creation of Adam and Eve. Synthesizing the Qur'an with Sunni hadith can produce the following account. According to the Qur'an, when Allah (God) informed the angels that he was going to put a successor on Earth, they questioned whether the human would cause blood shed and damage, but he told them that he knew what they did not. He created Adam from ...

By means of an ideological and rhetorical analysis of scientific as well as literary texts, she shows how the rhetoric of sickness provided the male decadent writer with an alibi for the occupation and appropriation of the female body....

Carried by a long-awaited wind, the chlorine cloud passed within a few minutes through the British and French trenches, leaving behind at least 1,000 dead and 4,000 injured. This chemical attack, which amounted to the first use of a weapon of mass destruction, marks a turning point in world history. The preparation as well as the execution of the gas attack was orchestrated by Fritz Haber, the director of the Kaiser Wilhelm Institute for Physical Chemistry and Electrochemistry in Berlin-Dahlem. During World War I, Haber transformed his research institute into a center for the development of chemical weapons (and of the means of protection agains...

Winston Churchill: The Incredible Life And Legacy Of Winston Churchill

by Tom King

The Incredible Life and Legacy of Sir Winston Churchill takes an inside look the man whom many historians consider one of the greatest world leaders in modern history. But was he really that great?

Surviving a death defying injury before the age of twenty, taking responsibility for the deaths of hundreds of British sailors at the outset of war and befriending a man he loathed, we explore how he went from the trenches of France during the First World War to the conference tables of the Kremlin and the White House during the second world war and beyond.History has been kind to Winston Churchill, yet his many shortcomings have been glossed ov...

***50 Page Illustrated Booklet***
By now, most Americans, regardless of their political persuasion, have come to realize that something is not quite right in America. You may not be able to put your finger on it, but you sense it instinctively.

How can you not sense it? For the first time ever, both the majority of the younger and the older generations of America now believe that future generations will not be as prosperous as their parents’ generation was. And that’s only the economic pessimism. On the social and cultural fronts, how many of us can truly say that we are proud are what our society has degenerated to?
