Den Exter,Andre and Hermans,Herbert Editors
The right to health care is changing over time and its content varies from country to country. Considering the right to health care on a singular plane fails to take account of the many differing applicable health care perspectives and their ramifications. Instead, the right to health care must be considered as a multidimensional concept. An expert meeting hosted by the Department of Health Policy and Management, Erasmus University, convened in Rotterdam, The Netherlands, in April of 1998 addressed the meaning and consequences of the right to health care in changing health care systems. Commissioned for this expert meeting, the papers published in this text address many differing perspectives on the right to health care, including international and national views, the role of various legal principles and the function of courts, and the organizational dimension. Awareness of these multiple perspectives and their ramifications is important in moving forward amidst the changing climate of health care rights. For example, reviewing knowledge and exchanging experiences from other countries helps enhance understanding of the meaning behind health care principles and provides an avenue for shared advice amongst those countries with commonalties in their systems. By offering this diverse range of viewpoints and coverage, the book provides a resource for anyone interested in health care rights.187pp.

Edited By Tymieniecka,Anna-Teresa
What is truth? This fascinating spectrum of studies into the various rationalities of our human dealings with life - psychological, aesthetic, economic, spiritual - reveals their joints and calls for a new approach to truth. Putting both classical and contemporary conceptions aside, we find the primogenital ground of truth in the networks of correspondences, adequations, relevancies, and rationales at work in life's becoming. Does this plurivocal differentiation mean that the status of truth is relative? On the contrary, submits Anna-Teresa Tymieniecka, given the universal significance of the crucial instrument of the logos of life, "truth is the vortex of life's ontopoietic unfolding". 374pp.N.B.slight fade mark and scuff to base of D/J.

Knapp, Gottfried
Albrecht Ade's 'photages', created with special light techniques, have nothing in common with the 'photocollages' or 'photomontages' of the 20th century. When artists as different as El Lissitzky, John Heartfield, Laszlo Moholy-Nagy, Raoul Hausmann or Hannah Hoch constructed futuristically bold, surreal or satirical images from photographic materials as a response to quotations from reality cut out and then stuck into Cubist 'papiers colles' by Georges Braque and Pablo Picasso, they worked mainly with someone else's material, with trouvailles. In contrast, Ade uses only his own material for his combination images, and his method for mounting images, for 'editing them into each other', does not need of scissors and paste either. He cultivates the usually involuntary effect of double exposure, a hazard from the days of analogue photography. He controls the chances of pictorial superimposition and confusion, artfully and purposefully arranging his own, deliberately positioned images among and on top of each other, using a technically elaborate matching and omission process. Ade, as well as teaching at the Stuttgart Akademie der Bildenden Kunste, has intensively promoted cinematic animation techniques in his years as director of the Stuttgart Festival of Animated Film, and since 1990, as founder-director of the Filmakademie in Ludwigsburg, has allowed animated film and camera arts to develop in the greatest possible breadth, in fact has helped to win the Ludwigsburg model the highest artistic respect in the film world. This all suggests how inventively and ingeniously his creative output mingles artistically creative and elaborately technical ideas and fascinations. Photography as a creative method for fine art - something the pioneers of photography dreamed of in the 19th century - becomes reality in Albrecht Ade's 'photages'. The text is in English and German. 97pp.
