Nielsen, Kai; Edited By Seymour, Michel and Fritsch, Matthias
Kai Nielsen has been the towering figure of Canadian philosophy over the last forty years. In this discussion and appreciation of Nielsen's work, highly respected specialists in the philosophy of religion, philosophical methodology (or metaphilosophy), and moral and political philosophy consider various aspects of his voluminous contributions and, at the same time, provide broad access to current philosophical debates. The volume contains not only twenty original papers on Nielsen's thought, but also his detailed responses to these critical essays. Among the outstanding contributors are Antony Kenny (philosophy and religion), Richard Rorty(methodology/metaphilosophy), Steven Lukes (Marxism), Norman Daniels (global justice), and Kok Chor Tan (nationalism). Despite the wide variety of these themes, Nielsen's body of work and his responses here show that it is possible to develop a systematic approach that links difference areas of philosophy within one perspective. This stimulating collection will thus attract readers in many different specialities. 431pp.

Edited By Zglinicki,Thomas Von
During the last 40 years, the study of the biological basis of aging has progressed tremendously, and it has now become an independent and respectable field of study and research. The essential cause of aging is molecular damage that slowly overwhelms cellular and organismic defense, repair and maintenance systems. In recent years, a wealth of highly sophisticated research has transformed this idea from a credible hypothesis not only to a major theory, but essentially to accepted knowledge. "Aging at the Molecular Level" examines the key elements in this transformation. Bringing together contributions from an international team of authors, this volume will be of interest to graduates and postgraduates in the fields of medicine and nursing, researchers of different aspects of biogerontology and those in the pharmaceutical, cosmeceutical, nutraceutical and health-care industry. 248pp.Biology of Aging and Its Modulation Volume 1.
