Hemstad, Betty Vos
Travellers in the Boundary Waters find much to draw the eye, not least of which is a profusion of wildflowers at every turn. For the unstudied hiker, what better way to meet these plants than with a friend to guide your vision and your understanding. Betty Vos Hemstad, a summer resident off the Gunflint Trail, is just the woman for the job. Her unique collection of stunning, full-colour photographs, taken over a twenty-year span, offers views of 120 regional flowers shown throughout their life cycles, from bud to flower to seedpod. Some views take you into the heart of the plant, revealing beauty in patterns and textures not seen with the naked eye. Hemstad's practical and personable descriptions spotlight each plant's features and offer titbits about common names, and favourite locations. This beautiful guide is organised by season and then by colour, making it the perfect companion for a walk in the woods, whether on the trail or far from it. And when you have learned all Hemstad has to teach, she offers a Wildflower Challenge - twenty 'neighbours' photographed in one season or another for you to identify and capture with your own camera. Come for a walk in the woods. You will be surprised at what treasures you find. 271pp.

Green, Karen
Previous owner's signature on ffep.This important and timely book challenges the direction taken by much recent work in the field of feminist studies. It mounts a powerful defence of humanism - a tradition of which many contemporary feminists have been sharply critical.Many feminists have viewed 'reason' and 'rationality' with deep suspicion. They have argued that reason was constructed by male philosophers in a way that excluded feminine traits: the man of reason was a masculine fiction.But this rejection of humanism assumes that there is only one tradition of humanism and only one conception of the rational individual. By carefully re-examining the texts of a feminist humanist tradition, Karen Green uncovers a different conception of the rational individual - a 'female version of rationality'. She captures the specificity of women's thought through a careful examination of their writings and their differences from the work of their male contemporaries.On this basis, Green argues that we need to reconceptualize both rationality and liberalism. Maintaining the ideal of rationality is quite compatible with understanding ourselves as embodied, emotional creatures whose sense of self is made up of a mixture of reason and feeling. Feminist humanism can provide a firm basis for political action and a compelling defence of equal political representation for women and men.211pp.

Edited By Lemaire, Eric and Galvez, Jesus Padilla
The work of L Wittgenstein addresses a huge variety of topics. The spectrum ranges from mathematics to the analysis of ethical problems. These issues have generated many important philosophical discussions and the aim of this book is to examine a the broad range of philosophical problems. Michael Le Du investigates the relevance of the problems and solutions proposed by Wittgenstein in his philosophy of social sciences. Sabine Plaud explores the synoptic views versus the primal phenomena in Wittgenstein on Goethe's Morphology. Eric Lemaire makes several critical remarks on Wittgenstein's anti-metaphyscial readings. Aysegul Cakal asks what the repudiation of private language means in Wittgenstein's Philosophy. Alejandro Tomasini Bassols looks into Wittgenstein and the myth of hinge propositions. Lars Hertzberg discusses P.M.S. Hacker's point of view about Wittgenstein's meaning of 'concept'. Jesus Padilla Galvez analyzes Wittgenstein's criticism against Godel's project of metalogic. 150pp. N.B. Light scratch to front board.
