At the Crossroads
At the Crossroads (June 1984)
Essays on Ahad Ha'am
Jacques Kornberg - Editor

A founding father of modern Israel, Ahad Ha-am (1856-1927) was one of the shapers of the contemporary Zionist consciousness. His career spanned the era of Russian Jewry's nationalist awakening. During the last decade of the nineteenth century, he was the leading theorist of the Russian Zionist movement. Afterwards, he was overshadowed by Theodore Herzl, who imposed his own stamp on Zionism. With the failure of Herzl's diplomacy and his ...(Read More)
Between Elite and Mass Education
Between Elite and Mass Education (June 1984)
Education in the Federal Republic of Germany
Max Planck Institute - Editor

Major changes in education have taken place in West Germany over the past three decades. The experience of the Federal Republic differs from that of its European neighbors, since it was conditioned by postwar efforts of the occupying powers to impose a new model of education: the American comprehensive secondary school. Yet the traditional American educational system is at the extreme of what could be called “mass education,” whe...(Read More)
Bruno, or On the Natural and Divine Principle of Things
Bruno, or On the Natural and Divine Principle of Things (June 1984)
F. W. J. Schelling - Author
Michael G. Vater - Editor

“Vater is one of the most knowledgeable persons in the English-speaking world on the thought of the early Schelling (up to and including the period of this dialogue he has translated). There exists in English no truly detailed account of Schelling's identity-philosophy. Vater's very fine introduction, and his extensive notes to the translation, do a great deal to fill this gap.” — Robert F. Brown, University of Delaware

Classification in Social Research
Classification in Social Research (June 1984)
Ramkrishna Mukherjee - Author

This important work is addressed to all researchers concerned with classification. It shows the serious limits of the traditional form of analytical classification. The solution it proposes, the inductive population approach, considers all possible cross-classifications in regard to attributes of the phenomena. This approach is theoretically grounded, avoids the tendency to generate excessively abstract constructs, and provides a clear way of linkin...(Read More)

Donald P. Cushman - Editor
Dudley D. Cahn - Editor

This book discusses communication principles, processes, and skills from four different perspectives by explaining four related propositions.

Excesses (June 1984)
Eros and Culture
Alphonso Lingis - Author

Excesses is a very successful attempt to break out of the closets in which we conceptualize our identity and our eros. Lingis has travelled to, and participated in, some of the last remaining oases of "primitive" cultures. He combines an obvious poet's eye with a not-so-obvious philosophical ability to discriminate systematically and to generalize. We are helped to see the shape--and limitations--of one of our own cultural identity through...(Read More)
