Robert Karplus, a professor of physics at the University of California, Berkeley, USA, became a leader in the movement to reform elementary school science in the 1960s. This book selects the enduring aspects of his work and presents them for the scientists and science educators of today. In an era when `science education for ALL students' has become the clarion call, the insights and works of Robert Karplus are as relevant now as they were in the 1960s, '70s, and '80s. This book tries to capture the essence of his life and work and presents selections of his published articles in a helpful context.

Multicultural perspectives abound in these interview portraits of teachers from every state and setting. Any stereotypes readers may have about teachers will go right out the window as they enjoy these anecdotes that reveal the real reasons teachers teach.Seven themes emerge: life work, connection, change, surprise, adventure, fulfillment, and love. Represented in fifty-four interviews with teachers are all fifty states plus Puerto Rico as a U.S. commonwealth; all grades; urban, suburban, and rural areas; private and public schools; and alternative settings such as military and prison classrooms. The author's questions remain hidden as the teachers, in their own separate voices, reflect on their work. The author notes By listening to the voices of those who would teach us, we come to understand not only what learning means but what living means. For it is through our teachers that we begin to discover who we are as human beings, and what we want to be as a society. The Foreword was written by Eric Oddleifson, a successful businessman who is also active in efforts to improve American schools. He writes, This book describes the type of person we need to attract to the teaching profession, as it gives voice to the enthusiasm, the passion, the commitment that invades his or her being. There can be no finer calling, requiring the clearest demonstration or moral and ethical behavior.

From the Love of Wisdom a New View of Being Human

The simplest truth, when observed in our daily lives, has an amazing effect. That truth? What is focused on GROWS. It is typical in our society today to use labels or groupings or diagnoses as the lens through which we focus on ourselves and others. From this perspective our view of ourselves, of others, can be cut short, distorted and fragmented. Suppose instead we could view ourselves and others through the lens that each person has an inborn, inviolable power to take action in living life. Then suppose that this POWER becomes our focus. Suddenly, we have a whole new view of ourselves and of being human. With this perspective, we accept one another as being responsible, as being in control of the actions we take, as having an integral place in our homes and communities. This is the power of the ultimate yes or no, it is profound and it can change the world. A New View of Being Human offers in plain language, a description of the complex, intangible processes that comprise this power of the human being. Any word spoken, any action taken, any feeling experienced by any person is the result of these processes. The processes are universal to every person, yet are unique in each one of us. This book provides the reader with a platform for considering what it means to grow in understanding the power of being human and the value of each one's contribution to this world in which we live.

The Social Relations of Physics Mysticism and Mathematics

Sal Restivo's book is a major achievement in the sociology of science and mathematics. It is exciting to read and constitutes a creative, wide-ranging exploration of the connections between physics and mysticism, between the natural science and the humanities. Of particular interest is his attempt to show the emergence of abstraction and of formal disciplines in science by relating them to the structure of social interests in society. All told, this book challenges the separation of C.P. Snow's two cultures' and is an original attempt to overcome the chasms between the natural sciences, the humanities, and the social sciences. The implications of the book's content certainly go far beyond its title.' Prof. W. Heydebrand, New York University

These two 'posthumous' publications to John O'Loughlin's oeuvre-proper were culled, like the material of 'Opus Postscriptum', from two of his blogsites and contain material of an essayistic and aphoristic nature which has been extensively revised and reformatted to suit the parameters of e-book publication. There is a sense, though only a loose one, in which the first book corresponds to physics and the second, the so-called 'Theosophical Illuminations', to metaphysics; though that is more in the form than in the substance, since both books are equally radical and thoroughgoing in their approach to metaphysics and kindred subjects.

In the past, resurgences of interest in the writings of St. Augustine have been times of excitement and advance in the history of Christianity. Augustinian thought brings great insight and levels of meaning to the Christian community, both Roman Catholic and Protestant. This volume, then, is an attempt to use Augustine-based reflections to relate the thoughts of one of the greatest of the early Christian writers to the thought and life of our time. This collection of 40 short meditations seeks to build on shared concerns of Christians of all denominations, and contribute a new appreciation of the thought, piety and spirituality of this significant early Christian thinker.
