Spiritual Integrity - On the Possibility of Steadfast Honesty in Faith and Worship (Paperback): Martin S Cohen Spiritual Integrity - On the Possibility of Steadfast Honesty in Faith and Worship (Paperback)
Martin S Cohen
R675 Discovery Miles 6 750 Ships in 12 - 17 work days

In Spiritual Integrity, Martin S. Cohen argues that it is possible for a serious commitment to religion-including to ritual, dogma, and prayer-to co-exist with a parallel commitment to the absolute integrity of the intellect. Writing as a working rabbi with almost four decades of experience in the pulpit, but also bringing to bear a lifetime of scholarly research into the history of Judaism, Cohen uses his own faith as the framework for his proposals and shows convincingly that although the concept of faith is regularly invoked precisely to justify avoiding honesty in religion, there also exists the possibility of using the traditional language of religious commitment to live wholly honestly in the world as a person of faith. Cohen uses all sorts of examples drawn from Judaism to make his point, but his book is not about Judaism, per se, however, but rather is a call to arms for people of all faiths-or no specific faith-to recognize that religion that, if embraced openly and honestly, can also lead to the embrace of a serious kind of spirituality anchored in frankness, honesty, and the renunciation of gullibility. Teaching would-be persons of faith how to move forward from a starting-gate fashioned of those specific values as pilgrims seeking redemption honestly and honorably-and fully imbued with what the author calls spiritual integrity-that should be the task of the world's spiritual leaders. Could it actually be possible to be a person of deep, abiding faith without feeling a concomitant need to profess belief in principles that there simply is no specific way to prove-and which could therefore just as easily be false as true? Cohen argues that it is more than possible to aspire to that level of honesty in religion and Spiritual Integrity is his attempt to prove that specific point!

Joshua Hordern
R1,980 Discovery Miles 19 800 Ships in 12 - 17 work days

Compassion in Healthcare gives an account of the nature and content of compassion and its role in healthcare. While compassion appears to be a straightforward aspect of life and practice, Hordern's analysis shows that it is plagued by both conceptual and practical ills, and stands in need of some quite specific kinds of therapy. Starting from a diagnosis of what precisely is wrong with 'compassion'-its debilitating political entanglements, the vagueness of its meaning, and the risk of burnout it threatens-three therapies are prescribed for these ills: an understanding of patients and healthcare workers as those who pass through the life-course, encountering each other as wayfarers and pilgrims; a grasp of the nature of compassion in healthcare; and an embedding of healthcare within the realities of civic life. Applying these therapeutic strategies uncovers how compassionate relationships acquire their content in healthcare practice. The form that compassion takes is shown to depend on how doctrines of time, tragedy, salvation, responsibility, fault, and theodicy make a difference to the quality of people's lives and relationships. Drawing on the author's real-world collaborations, the way in which compassion matters to practice and policy is worked out in the detail of healthcare professionalism, marketization, and technology. Covering everything from conception to old age, and from machine learning to religious diversity, Compassion in Healthcare draws on philosophy, theology, and everyday experience to expand our understanding of what compassion means for healthcare practice.

Gender, Orientalism and the Jewish Nation - Women in the Work of Ephraim Moses Lilien at the German Fin de Siecle (Paperback):... Gender, Orientalism and the Jewish Nation - Women in the Work of Ephraim Moses Lilien at the German Fin de Siecle (Paperback)
Lynne M. Swarts
R644 Discovery Miles 6 440 Ships in 10 - 20 work days

Ephraim Moses Lilien (1874-1925) was one of the most important Jewish artists of modern times. As a successful illustrator, photographer, painter and printer, he became the first major Zionist artist. Surprisingly there has been little in-depth scholarly research and analysis of Lilien's work available in English, making this book an important contribution to historical and art-historical scholarship. Concentrating mainly on his illustrations for journals and books, Lynne Swarts acknowledges the importance of Lilien's groundbreaking male iconography in Zionist art, but is the first to examine Lilien's complex and nuanced depiction of women, which comprised a major dimension of his work. Lilien's female images offer a compelling glimpse of an alternate, independent and often sexually liberated modern Jewish woman, a portrayal that often eluded the Zionist imagination. Using an interdisciplinary approach to integrate intellectual and cultural history with issues of gender, Jewish history and visual culture, Swarts also explores the important fin de siecle tensions between European and Oriental expressions of Jewish femininity. The work demonstrates that Lilien was not a minor figure in the European art scene, but a major figure whose work needs re-reading in light of his cosmopolitan and national artistic genius.

The study of Islamic erudition in Africa is growing rapidly, transforming not just Islamic studies, but also African Studies. This interdisciplinary volume from leading international scholars fills a lacuna in presenting not only the history and spread of Islamic scholarship in Africa, but its current state and future concerns. Challenging the notion that Muslim societies in black Africa were essentially oral prior to the European colonial conquest at the turn of the 20th century, and countering the largely Western division of sub-Saharan Africa and North Africa, the authors take an inclusive approach to advance our knowledge of the contribution of people of African descent to the life of Mecca. This book explores in depth the intellectual and spiritual exchanges between populations in the Maghreb, the Sahara and West Africa. A key theme is Islamic learning. The authors examine the madrasa as asite of knowledge and learning, the relationship between "diasporas" and Islamic education systems, female learning circles, and the use of ICT. Diversifying the study of Islamic erudition, the contributors look at the interactions between textuality and orality, female learning circles, the vernacular study of poetry and cosmological texts, and the role of Ajami - the use of Arabic script to transcribe 80 African languages.

Repentance and the Right to Forgiveness (Hardcover): Court D. Lewis Repentance and the Right to Forgiveness (Hardcover)
Court D. Lewis
R1,725 Discovery Miles 17 250 Ships in 12 - 17 work days

Repentance and the Right to Forgiveness adds the voice of rights theory to contemporary discussions on forgiveness. Rights have been excluded for two related reasons: first, forgiveness is often framed as "a gift" to wrongdoers; and second, rights suggest that victims are obligated in certain cases to forgive their wrongdoers. Such an obligation is often considered repugnant, for it unjustifiably wrongs (i.e., victimizes) victims, while benefiting wrongdoers. Repentance and the Right to Forgiveness overcomes this repugnancy by utilizing the moral theory of eireneism to craft a rights-based theory of justice grounded in the inherent worth and intimate moral relationships between victims, wrongdoers, and their social community, in order to show that the particular needs of victims make the obligation to forgive self-beneficial while also promoting a peaceful state of just flourishing.

Philo of Alexandria's Ethical Discourse - Living in the Power of Piety (Hardcover): Nelida Naveros Cordova, CDP Philo of Alexandria's Ethical Discourse - Living in the Power of Piety (Hardcover)
Nelida Naveros Cordova, CDP
R1,823 Discovery Miles 18 230 Ships in 12 - 17 work days

Philo of Alexandria's Ethical Discourse: Living in the Power of Piety proposes a fresh approach to better understand Philo's ethics exploring the virtue of piety. In this exceptionally well-researched book, Nelida Naveros Cordova analyzes five major uses of piety in Philo's treatises- piety and the Decalogue; piety as a foundational virtue; piety as the opposite of impiety; the practice of piety, and the relationship between piety and love of humanity. Naveros carefully examines each of these five uses within both the Hellenistic Jewish and Greek philosophical traditions, focusing particularly on piety's primary role in Philo's teaching about the acquisition of virtues and the avoidance of vices. Naveros argues that in his ethical discourse, Philo incorporates language familiar in ancient Greek philosophical ethical systems to attribute qualities and powers to the virtue of piety. This book illustrates the way Philo moves beyond both Hellenistic Jewish and Greek philosophical traditions by comprehensively showing how he develops the place of piety, from being a subordinate virtue in Greek catalogue of virtues to becoming a foundational virtue. Naveros brings evidence from ancient Greco-Roman and major Hellenistic Jewish texts as well as modern secondary literature in order to argue and support a plausible case for the understanding of Philo's unique configuration of his own ethical discourse, his view of virtue ethics, and his philosophical stance. To date, this is an original study on Philo's ethics, and the first to offer the fullest evaluation of piety within the categories of ancient ethical systems.

Yoga and the Hindu Tradition (Paperback, New edition): Jean Varenne Yoga and the Hindu Tradition (Paperback, New edition)
Jean Varenne; Translated by Derek Coltman
R805 Discovery Miles 8 050 Ships in 12 - 17 work days

A popular and critical success when it first appeared in France, Yoga and the Hindu Tradition has freed Yoga from the common misconceptions of the recent Yoga vogue. Jean Varenne, the distinguished French Orientalist, presents the theory of classical Yoga, in all its richness, as a method--a concrete way to reach the Absolute through spiritual exercises--which makes possible the transition from existence to essence.
This excellent translation, including line drawings and charts, a glossary of technical terms, and a complete translation of the Yoga Darshana Upanishad, begins with a brief description of the metaphysical and religious history on which Yoga is based. Varenne discusses the theoretical conception of Yoga as the search for liberating knowledge, concluding with a brief indication of the physical practices and extra Yogic themes such as Kundalini and Tantrism. It is the author's hope that those who read this book] will come to realize that it is in fact dishonest to reduce Yoga to some sort of physical training, or to just an occult doctrine; it is a 'world view' a Weltanschauung that comprehends reality in its totality.
The straightforward, well-organized presentation makes the book itself a microcosm of what Varenne singles out as a dominant feature of classical Hindu thought--a bringing of the complex and multitudinous into a unity.--Judith Guttman, Yoga Journal

Negotiating Gender and Sexuality in Contemporary Turkey (Hardcover, New edition): Mary Lou O'Neil, Jaspal Kaur Singh Negotiating Gender and Sexuality in Contemporary Turkey (Hardcover, New edition)

Turkey is often visualized as a modern nation-state having a perfect balance of Eastern and Western cultural mores and traditions within dominant ideological constructions and representations, but on closer inspection, one can detect conflicts and contradictions within various texts - particularly in regards to depictions of gender and sexual identity. Upon its foundation as a nation, Turkey embarked on a state-centered, elite-driven path toward modernization and Westernization while also seeking to produce a monolithic culture. At the time, it was widely believed that Turkey could not rank among modern, Western countries without the emancipation of women. As a result of the founding of the Republic and Turkey's quest for a unified culture, women were granted a number of legal rights and enjoined to take up their place in the public sphere. In recent years, this model of state-centered secular modernity and state feminism has come under intense scrutiny and criticism as Islamists, Kurds, feminists, and others demand their claims for recognition and force a rethinking of current understandings of Turkish identity and subjectivity, specifically regarding gender and the place and role of women in society. These controversies, contradictions, and ambiguities are reflected in women's lives and are waged by various factions over women's bodies within ideological constructions of identity and this study seeks to examine these disjunctures and contradictions as reflected in modern Turkish literature and culture. Negotiating Gender and Sexuality in Contemporary Turkey is an essential tool for scholars and students of Middle Eastern literature, Turkish literature and culture, gender and sexuality studies, modern and postmodern literature, postcolonial and feminist literature and studies, cultural studies, religious studies, and women's studies and seeks to place a microscopic view on a marginalized and embattled group.

When the daily business news breaks away from stories of profit and loss, it often shines a spotlight on ethical failures. But Christians aim to be ethical in all the areas of daily life and work-not just when the spotlight is on them. For those facing the many questions and quandaries of doing business with ethical integrity, Alec Hill offers a place to begin. In this third edition of a popular textbook on business ethics, Hill carefully explores the foundational Christian concepts of holiness, justice, and love. These keys to God's character, he argues, are also the keys to Christian business ethics. Hill then shows how some common responses to business ethics fall short of a fully Christian mindset. Using penetrating case studies on such pressing topics as employer-employee relations, discrimination and affirmative action, and environmental damage, he clothes principles in concrete business situations. Updated throughout, and with a new chapter on international business, this new edition of Just Business is an excellent introduction to business ethics for students, and a timely refresher for men and women already in the marketplace.
