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.

Chronic inflammatory, malignant and metabolic diseases of the liver, pancreas and bile system account for substantial morbidity and mortality. Thus, new strategies to prevent, diagnose and treat such diseases are urgently needed. This book is the proceedings of the Falk Symposium 150, "Disease Progression and Disease Prevention in the Gastrointestinal Tract", held in Berlin, Germany, on 3-4 October, 2005, and focusses on the biliary system, pancreas and liver. Pathogenic processes are described as well as primary and secondary prevention and treatment of disease. Scientific and clinical experts offer a broad understanding and pave the ground for extensive interdisciplinary discussions. In this sense, the symposium generated new aspects contributing to "translation research" developing also - at least in some aspects - new perspectives on the various different pathogenic mechanisms in gastrointestinal organs. The present book summarizes the state of the art in these different disease entities, as presented at the meeting.269pp.

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.
