Reaching into our own time, Crisis and the Apocalypse of Man confronts the disintegration of traditional sources of meaning and the correlative attempt to generate new sources of order from within the self. Voegelin allows us to contemplate the crisis in its starkest terms as the apocalypse of man that now seeks to replace the apocalypse of God. The totalitarian upheaval that convulsed Voegelin's world, and whose aftermath still defines ours, is only the external manifestation of an inner spiritual turmoil. Its roots have been probed throughout the eight volumes of History of Political Ideas, but its emergence is marked by the age of Enlightenment. In our postmodern era, discussions of the collapse of the "enlightenment project" have become commonplace. Voegelin compels us to follow the great-souled individuals who sought to go from disintegration of the present toward evocations of order for the future. Such thinkers as Comte, Bakunin, and Marx suffered through the crisis and fully understood the need for a new outpouring of the spirit. They resolved to supply the deficiency themselves. As a consequence they launched us irrevocably on the path of the apocalypse of man. One of the great merits of Voegelin's analysis is his exposition of the pervasive character of this crisis. It is not confined to the megalomaniacal dreamers of a revolutionary apocalypse; rather, echoes of it are found in the more moderate Enlightenment preoccupation with progress to be attained through application of the scientific method. Faith in the capacity of instrumental reason to answer the ultimate questions of human existence defined men such as Voltaire, Helvétius, Diderot, D'Alembert, and Condorcet. It remains the authoritative faith of our world today, Voegelin argues, demonstrated by our continuing inability to step outside the parameters of the Enlightenment. Are we condemned, then, to oscillate between the rational incoherence of a science that never delivers on its promises and a now discredited revolutionary idealism that wreaks havoc in practice? This is the question toward which Voegelin's final volume points. While not direct, his response is evident everywhere. Crisis and the Apocalypse of Man could have been written only by a man who had reached his own resolution of the crisis.

Ideas Against Ideocracy

This groundbreaking work by one of the world's foremost theoreticians of culture and scholars of Russian philosophy gives for the first time a systematic examination of the development of Russian philosophy during the late Soviet period. Countering the traditional view of an intellectual wilderness under the Soviet regime, Mikhail Epstein provides a comprehensive account of Russian thought of the second half of the 20th century that is highly sophisticated without losing clarity. It provides new insights into previously mostly ignored areas such as late-Soviet Russian nationalism and Eurasianism, religious thought, cosmism and esoterism, and postmodernism and conceptualism. Epstein shows how Russian philosophy has long been trapped in an intellectual prison of its own making as it sought to create its own utopia. However, he demonstrates that it is time to reappraise Russian thought, now freed from the bonds of Soviet totalitarianism and ideocracy but nevertheless dangerously engaged into new nationalist aspirations and metaphysical radicalism. We are left with not only a new and exciting interpretation of recent Russian intellectual history, but also the opportunity to rethink our own philosophical heritage.

Greek and Roman Political Ideas

Eight ideas will constitute the core of this book, and will help us envision what politics might be. All arise at the levels identified earlier: the level of philosophical reflection and the level of political practice.

What is politics? What are the origins of political philosophy? What can we learn from the Greeks and Romans? In Greek and Roman Political Ideas, acclaimed classics scholar Melissa Lane introduces the reader to the foundations of Western political thought, from the Greeks, who invented democracy, to the Romans, who created a republic and then transformed it into an empire. Tracing the origins of political philosophy from Socrates to Cicero to Plutarch, Lane reminds us that the birth of politics was as much a story of individuals as ideas.

This study, first published in 1973, examines the principles that lie behind educational dilemmas, and helps to clarify the difficulties of explanation, justification and practical action in the educational system. The author explores various key concepts in the education process, such as Intelligence, Equal Opportunity, Knowledge and Selection. She shows that different and often contrasting interpretations of these concepts imply certain assumptions about the nature of man, the genesis and knowledge, the education process and its relation to society. This title will be of interest to students of sociology and education.

The widespread promotion of management ideas, their regular inclusion in textbooks and business school curricula and their use in organizational change programs has engendered debates about the impact of these ideas on management and organizational practice. Based on analyses of managerial audience members' activities and related meaning-making prior to, during and after guru events with leading management thinkers, this book sheds new light on how management practitioners come to use management ideas in the different relevant contexts of their working lives. The authors argue that a broader, more differentiated and more dynamic view of managerial audiences is essential in understanding the impact of management ideas as well as the nature of contemporary managerial work. For scholars and students in organisation studies, knowledge management and management consultancy, as well as reflective management practitioners.

Engage students in mathematics using growth mindset techniques The most challenging parts of teaching mathematics are engaging students and helping them understand the connections between mathematics concepts. In this volume, you'll find a collection of low floor, high ceiling tasks that will help you do just that, by looking at the big ideas at the first-grade level through visualization, play, and investigation. During their work with tens of thousands of teachers, authors Jo Boaler, Jen Munson, and Cathy Williams heard the same message—that they want to incorporate more brain science into their math instruction, but they need guidance in the techniques that work best to get across the concepts they needed to teach. So the authors designed Mindset Mathematics around the principle of active student engagement, with tasks that reflect the latest brain science on learning. Open, creative, and visual math tasks have been shown to improve student test scores, and more importantly change their relationship with mathematics and start believing in their own potential. The tasks in Mindset Mathematics reflect the lessons from brain science that: There is no such thing as a math person - anyone can learn mathematics to high levels. Mistakes, struggle and challenge are the most important times for brain growth. Speed is unimportant in mathematics. Mathematics is a visual and beautiful subject, and our brains want to think visually about mathematics. With engaging questions, open-ended tasks, and four-color visuals that will help kids get excited about mathematics, Mindset Mathematics is organized around nine big ideas which emphasize the connections within the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) and can be used with any current curriculum.

The most comprehensive Zionist collection ever published, The Zionist Ideas: Visions for the Jewish Homeland—Then, Now, Tomorrow sheds light on the surprisingly diverse and shared visions for realizing Israel as a democratic Jewish state. Building on Arthur Hertzberg’s classic, The Zionist Idea, Gil Troy explores the backstories, dreams, and legacies of more than 170 passionate Jewish visionaries—quadruple Hertzberg’s original number and now including women, mizrachim, and others—from the 1800s to today. Troy divides the thinkers into six Zionist schools of thought—Political, Revisionist, Labor, Religious, Cultural, and Diaspora Zionism—and reveals the breadth of the debate and surprising syntheses. He also presents the visionaries within three major stages of Zionist development, demonstrating the length and evolution of the conversation. Part 1 (pre-1948) introduces the pioneers who founded the Jewish state, such as Herzl, Gordon, Jabotinsky, Kook, Ha’am, and Szold. Part 2 (1948 to 2000) features builders who actualized and modernized the Zionist blueprints, such as Ben-Gurion, Berlin, Meir, Begin, Soloveitchik, Uris, and Kaplan. Part 3 showcases today’s torchbearers, including Barak, Grossman, Shaked, Lau, Yehoshua, and Sacks. This mosaic of voices will engage equally diverse readers in reinvigorating the Zionist conversation—weighing and developing the moral, social, and political character of the Jewish state of today and tomorrow.

Recognised and respected throughout the advertising industry for blowing the whistle on fraud at a publicly quoted advertising agency of which he was managing director, Hugh Salmon’s career was further affected by complications of a broken back caused by a rugby injury. He witnessed the suffering that disabled people are forced to endure and realised that the understanding of human behav-iour and the creative talent in advertising agencies could be applied to improving society as a whole – particularly the poor, the underprivileged and the disabled. After standing as an independent MP in the 2010 general election, Hugh’s challenging observations on life and human behaviour featured in his blog ‘A Different Hat’ on the marketing website Brand Republic and Huffington Post. Ideas for Britain, previously published as an ebook, is a compilation of some of these blog posts from 2009-2015. From Theresa May’s ignorance of the most basic law of advertising to a call for the role of government to be redefined in a changing world; from the simple belief that every child has a talent at something to innovative proposals for the education system; from the realities of living as a disabled person to a radical new future for the NHS (including a call to separate care from cure and the launch of a new National Care Service); from the failure of immigration policy to the underlying tensions of an increasingly divided society (since evidenced by the 2016 EU referendum), Ideas for Britain takes an adman’s innate understanding of human behaviour and challenges the political classes to seek more creative solutions to the core issues facing Britain today.

The concept of making money when you sleep has drawn a crowd to the pursuit of passive income. Theoretically, you put in some time and money in the start, then relax and let the money pour in when you focus on other things. This appears like a dream become a reality, but it's mostly only a dream. In today's workforce, relying on one income source is risky. Job protection is rarely guaranteed, and a little extra cash is useful always. By using your primary income source to cover basic expenses, you may use extra income streams to pay off debts, reduce your economic burden, or avoid going further into debt when you are able to pay for larger purchases up front rather than with a credit card or loan. Conversely, passive income is cash that continues to pay out following the initial work is done. Traditionally, income that were considered "passive" generally included money earned from investments in shares or profit acquired by a person who had invested in accommodations property but wasn't involved in the management or day-to-day functions of that property. This book covers: Passive Income Dropshipping Affiliate Marketing Blogging Dividend Stocks Merch By Amazon Programs Amazon Fba Ebook Online Courses Freelancing As A Virtual Assistant………AND MORE!!! These are great ways to make passive income still, although they require a substantial investment right from the start. With the rise of the internet, the potential to develop passive income is around every corner if you know where to look, and you will get started with much smaller investments. Although you absolutely can drastically reduce the amount of time you may spend working throughout the full week, a passive income stream won't be quite passive fully. In order to ensure you possess a well-curved understanding of all aspects of your business, it is suggested to be as included as you can be in the start. You can then outsource whatever you don't want to do or that you aren't well-suited for to experts, or automate with software. Among the great perks of working online is that you can have got multiple businesses creating income for you without the trouble of owning or renting different buildings, hiring managers, personnel, maintenance, etc.; or trying to find and attract a person base in your area. Your online businesses could be available to anyone across the globe twenty-four hours a time, 3 hundred sixty-five days a full year. With outsourcing and automation, these tools can grow your client base and make you money any moment of day or night with minimal involvement on your own part. It's never too late to begin with building passive income, and you don't need to be a trained businessperson to begin with building your own business online. If you are ready to put in your time and effort to learn and improve as you move, you can build an effective business and passive income stream in addition to anyone. With an online business, you will be your own boss and work from you want anywhere. And the best part is that there is no cap on how much money you may make. With patience and persistence, you can perform the financial freedom we all fantasy of, and you can eventually reduce your functioning hours to less than those of a part-time job while still maintaining plenty of income.

Murray Weidenbaum has been a visiting scholar at the American Enterprise Institute and the Center for Strategic and International Studies, a speaker at meetings at the Brookings Institution, the Cato Institute, and the Heritage Foundation and has also written for their publications, and served as a reviewer of ongoing studies. In The Competition of Ideas, Weidenbaum examines the political economy of these vital institutions, drawing heavily on several decades of involvement in their activities. He is uniquely able to see their accomplishments as well as their shortcomings. Because of the importance of the activities of their organizations, and their tax-exempt status, think tanks are held to a high standard. Weidenbaum shows that sometimes think tanks are more tank than think—major think tanks are often predictable in the positions they take on public issues and are far better at analyzing the shortcomings of other elements of society than of their own operations. The overarching issue of quality control, Weidenbaum holds, deserves more attention than it has attained in the think tank world. This book presents a careful, balanced account of where think tanks have been and where they are now headed. Given the high levels of professionalism in many think tanks, a fundamental change in the attitude of their management is important. The compelling need is less for the wielder of policy than for the lucid synthesizer of relevant research and analysis. Likewise, society needs sensitivity to the long-term concerns of the citizenry more urgently than rapid response to the opportunities of the moment. Future competition, particularly among the major think tanks, could well be centered, not on achieving greater visibility, but on developing responses to economic, environmental, and national security problems that are likely to be adopted and carried out.
