Download PDF On Manners Book by Karen Stohr Full eBook and published by Routledge. This book was released on 2012-05-22 with total page 200 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Many otherwise enlightened people often dismiss etiquette as a trivial subject or—worse yet—as nothing but a disguise for moral hypocrisy or unjust social hierarchies. Such sentiments either mistakenly assume that most manners merely frame the “real issues” of any interpersonal exchange or are the ugly vestiges of outdated, unfair social arrangements. But in On Manners, Karen Stohr turns the tables on these easy prejudices, demonstrating that the scope of manners is much broader than most people realize and that manners lead directly to the roots of enduring ethical questions. Stohr suggests that though manners are mostly conventional, they are nevertheless authoritative insofar as they are a primary means by which we express moral attitudes and commitments and carry out important moral goals. Drawing primarily on Aristotle and Kant and with references to a wide range of cultural examples—from Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice to Larry David’s Curb Your Enthusiasm—the author ultimately concludes that good manners are essential to moral character.
Download PDF Depending on Strangers Book by David P. Levine Full eBook and published by ISD LLC. This book was released on 2021-01-31 with total page 192 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: In this book, David Levine explores the unknown self. The unknown self is the self existing as a potential to become something yet to be determined. The shape our personalities and life experiences take depends on a process. At the outset of this process, the self is, in a sense, a stranger; both to us and to others. The more this is the case, the greater the openness of the process of self-formation to a kind of freedom, which is the freedom from predetermination of its outcome. In exploring this process, the book considers such topics as: the nature of inner freedom and its relationship to deliberation and choice; stranger anxiety and its connection to group dynamics and social connection; the internal factors that enable us to make the decisions that shape our lives and through our actions realise the ends embedded in our decisions; how our memories shape our choices and the lives we lead that result from them; what makes it possible for us to live comfortably with and depend on people we do not know; concern for the welfare of strangers and how our welfare can be secure in a world where others do not care about us or us about them.
Download PDF Things That Go Bump in the Church Book by Mike Abendroth Full eBook and published by Harvest House Publishers. This book was released on 2014-04-01 with total page 179 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: What does the Bible say about the important topics you hear about in sermons every week? Authors Mike Abendroth, Clint Archer, and Byron Yawn explore issues where confusion abounds — critical issues such as: Hell: What does the Bible say about hell being a real place of future punishment? Demons: Just how much influence do demons really have in the life of a Christian? The secret to overcoming fear is knowledge. As you carefully compare your church doctrine with what the Bible says, you'll gain confidence in knowing the truth and be able to discern and apply it. The more you know what God's Word says about things that go bump in the church, the less hesitant you will feel about discussing them with others and living according to them.

Download PDF A Primer in Positive Psychology Book by Christopher Peterson Full eBook and published by Oxford University Press. This book was released on 2006-07-27 with total page 397 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Positive psychology is the scientific study of what goes right in life, from birth to death and at all stops in between. It is a newly-christened approach within psychology that takes seriously the examination of that which makes life most worth living. Everyone's life has peaks and valleys, and positive psychology does not deny the valleys. Its signature premise is more nuanced, but nonetheless important: what is good about life is as genuine as what is bad and, therefore, deserves equal attention from psychologists. Positive psychology as an explicit perspective has existed only since 1998, but enough relevant theory and research now exist to fill a textbook suitable for a semester-long college course.A Primer in Positive Psychology is thoroughly grounded in scientific research and covers major topics of concern to the field: positive experiences such as pleasure and flow; positive traits such as character strengths, values, and talents; and the social institutions that enable these subjects as well as what recent research might contribute to this knowledge. Every chapter contains exercises that illustrate positive psychology, a glossary, suggestions of articles and books for further reading, and lists of films, websites, and popular songs that embody chapter themes.A comprehensive overview of positive psychology by one of the acknowledged leaders in the field, this textbook provides students with a thorough introduction to an important area of psychology.

Download PDF The Grey Woman Book by Elizabeth Gaskell Full eBook and published by Lindhardt og Ringhof. This book was released on 2020-10-26 with total page 287 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Anna, a German mill-owner’s daughter, marries a French aristocrat and moves to France. She discovers that her husband killed his previous wife and that he is trying to kill her as well. Quick, intriguing, and with an extremely interesting plot, ‘The Grey Woman’ (1861) is a short story by Elizabeth Gaskell for anyone who enjoys a good gothic shudder. Incredibly progressive for its time, it is about the survival of the ill-treated woman who has decided that enough is enough. Elizabeth Cleghorn Gaskell (1810-1865) was an English novelist, short story writer, and biographer, best known for her novels ‘North and South’ and ‘Wives and Daughters’ as well as her biography of Charlotte Brontë. Gaskell was viewed as a minor author until the 1950s where it became evident that her depiction of industrial environments and social problems was brilliant and poignant.

Download PDF The Circle of Socrates Book by Full eBook and published by Hackett Publishing. This book was released on 2013-03-15 with total page 337 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: In addition to works by Plato and Xenophon, we know of dozens of treatises and dialogues written by followers of Socrates that are now lost. The surviving evidence for these writings constitutes an invaluable resource for our understanding of Socrates and his philosophical legacy. The Circle of Socrates presents new--sometimes the first--English translations of a representative selection of this evidence, set alongside extracts from Plato and Xenophon. The texts are arranged according to theme, with concise introductions that provide an overview of the topics and the main lines of thought within them. The aim is to give a fuller account of the philosophical activity of Socrates' immediate followers: both to shed light on less well known figures (some of whom inspired schools and movements that were influential in the development of later thought), and also to improve our grasp of the intellectual context within which Plato and Xenophon, the most important of the Socratics, lived and wrote. Included are a general introduction to the history, content, and character of these writings; a bibliography; an index of sources; and an index of the Socratics and their works.
Download PDF Contentment, Prosperity, and God’s Glory Book by Jeremiah Burroughs Full eBook and published by Reformation Heritage Books. This book was released on 2013-04-20 with total page 144 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Why is it difficult to be content when you have so much? On the surface, it seems unnecessary to instruct someone to be content in times of prosperity. However, times of prosperity and abundance provide some of the strongest temptations to pull our hearts away from God. Jeremiah Burroughs was keenly aware that the riches of this world compete for our affections and challenge our contentment in Christ. Originally prepared as an appendix to The Rare Jewel of Christian Contentment , this book provides an important conclusion to Burroughs’s sermon series on Philippians 4:11–12: “I have learned in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content. I know both how to be abased, and I know how to abound: every where and in all things I am instructed both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need. Table of Contents: 1. Introduction 2. What Learning to Be Full Means 3. The Difficulty of Learning to Be Full 4. The Necessity of Learning to Be Full 5. The Excellency of Learning to Be Full 6. The Mystery of Learning to Be Full 7. Lessons for Learning to Be Full 8. Increasing the Guilt of Sins of Abundance 9. Applications for Improving Prosperous Conditions 10. Concluding Words on Contentment Series Description Interest in the Puritans continues to grow, but many people find reading these giants of the faith a bit unnerving. This series seeks to overcome that barrier by presenting Puritan books that are convenient in size and unintimidating in length. Each book is carefully edited with modern readers in mind, smoothing out difficult language of a bygone era while retaining the meaning of the original authors. Books for the series are thoughtfully selected to provide some of the best counsel on important subjects that people continue to wrestle with today.
