Abstract

The notebooks of A. D. Hope are a portrait of the contradictory essence of the poet’s intellect and character. Shot through with threads of self-awareness and revelation, Hope imbued his notebooks with irony and humour, forming them as a celebration of the joy and terror of human existence. Stripped of intimate revelation, the entries give witness to Hope’s view that art is a superior force in the creation of new being and values, and a guide for the conduct of our lives. Seeking to find pathways through the maze of an intellectual life, this is a profound and timely contribution to Australia’s literary scholarship. Ann McCulloch’s analysis of this thematic selection of Hope’s notebooks reveals him to be relentless in his experimentation with ideas. Revealing the originality of his thinking and the astonishing range of his reading and interests, this edition is a testament to the intellect of one of Australia’s towering literary figures.

Abstract

This work is a series of sermons produced by Emeritus Professor Hans Mol, and based on Biblical texts, the Commentaries of John Calvin on these texts, and on Calvin’s Institutes of the Christian Religion. Mol is Australia’s pre-eminent scholar in the sociology of religion, particularly in Australia. His 1971 volume, Religion in Australia, was the first attempt at statistical analysis of religion in Australia, which was also internationally significant. Parallel to Mol’s interest in the sociology of religion has been his interest in Calvin. Indeed the theological basis of his life has been as a Calvinist. Here in this volume he brings both of these interests together. His sermons, preached over the years in Canberra, seek to apply the teachings of Calvin to a world-view in which the scientific study of religion, and indeed the wider study of sociology, are of central significance. In these sermons, he succeeds considerably in this. The volume is a substantial contribution to scholarship, in that the combination of these two factors has only rarely been attempted. Thus, the volume has originality and will have enduring value. It is especially appropriate that it should be published at this time, in preparation for the 500th Anniversary of Calvin’s birth (1509–2009).

Abstract

A obra analisa a relação conclusiva expressa por meio das conjunções então e portanto, em dados do português falado nos países lusófonos. Para tanto, utiliza o aparato teórico da Gramática Discursivo-Funcional, modelo que privilegia a intenção comunicativa do falante ao fazer uso do sistema linguístico em situação de interação. A análise revela a existência de três diferentes tipos de relação conclusiva: a Função Resumo (que ocorre entre porções textuais maiores, para sintetizar uma explanação anterior), a Função Conclusão (que relaciona indiretamente duas orações por meio de uma premissa) e a Função Consequência (que relaciona diretamente duas orações, à semelhança de causa-consequência).

Abstract

A obra nasce no bojo das discussões e problemas relacionados (ou associados) ao ensino de gramática, tanto no âmbito acadêmico quanto no profissional. Em tal contexto, Ana Carolina Sperança-Criscuolo busca demonstrar a adequação pedagógica da proposta de descrição e análise de orações subordinadas substantivas sob uma perspectiva funcionalista-cognitivista.A autora escolhe o domínio da sintaxe pela importância desse nível de organização da língua na arquitetura do texto. Além disso, o processo de subordinação substantiva, foco da pesquisa, figura como recurso bastante recorrente e produtivo no português. O estudo dos aspectos pragmático-discursivos ligados a tal processo pode, assim, proporcionar melhor entendimento e maior domínio dessas construções e, consequentemente, dos textos.O livro organiza-se em cinco capítulos. Neles, a autora apresenta um breve histórico sobre o desenvolvimento dos estudos linguísticos, discute os princípios teóricos que nortearam a pesquisa, trata da perspectiva cognitivista no estudo da língua, aborda o tratamento tradicional do período composto por subordinação. Partindo de usos autênticos das orações, ela ainda analisa aspectos pragmáticos e discursivos associados a sua organização e, finalmente, promove uma discussão sobre elementos que possibilitam refletir sobre a língua como um sistema complexo e dinâmico.

Abstract

In October 2009 it was reported that 68 of 101 patients with chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) in the United States, when tested, were infected with a novel gamma retrovirus, xenotropic&#xD;&#xD;murine leukemia virus-related virus (XMRV) (Lombardi et al., 2009). XMRV is a recently&#xD;&#xD;discovered human gammaretrovirus first described in prostate cancers that shares&#xD;&#xD;significant homology with murine leukemia virus (MLV) (Ursiman et al., 2006). It is known&#xD;&#xD;that XMRV can cause leukemias and sarcomas in several rodent, feline, and primate species&#xD;&#xD;but has not been shown to cause disease in humans. XMRV was detectable in the peripheral&#xD;&#xD;blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs) and plasma of individuals diagnosed with CFS&#xD;&#xD;(Lombardi et al., 2009). After this report was published there was a great deal of uncertainty&#xD;&#xD;surrounding this emergent virus and its involvement in the etiology of CFS. The uncertainty&#xD;&#xD;was, in part, due to CFS being a complex, poorly understood multi-system disorder with&#xD;&#xD;different disease criteria used for its diagnosis. CFS, also known as Myalgic&#xD;&#xD;Encephalomyelitis (ME), is a debilitating disease of unknown origin that is estimated to&#xD;&#xD;affect 17 million people worldwide. The initial report connecting XMRV to prostate cancers&#xD;&#xD;and CFS garnered significant media and scientific interest since it provided a potential&#xD;&#xD;&#xD;&#xD;Susie ElSaadany2**, Tamer Oraby1&#xD;&#xD;*&#xD;&#xD;Daniel Krewski1, 4 and Peter R.

Abstract

This engaging open access book discusses how a values and valuing perspective can facilitate a more effective mathematics pedagogical experience, and allows readers to explore multiple applications of the values perspective across different education systems. It also clearly shows that teaching mathematics involves not only reasoning and feelings, but also students’ interactions with their cultural setting and each other. The book brings together the work of world leaders and new thinkers in mathematics educational research to improve the learning and teaching of mathematics. Addressing themes such as discovering hidden cultural values, a multicultural society and methodological issues in the investigation of values in mathematics, it stimulates readers to consider these topics in cross-cultural ways, and offers suggestions for research and classroom practice. It is a valuable resource for scholars of mathematics education, from early childhood through to higher education and an inspiring read for all mathematics teachers. ; Features the intellectual work of researchers from different ethnicities and nationalities Offers an alternative perspective of complementing cognition and affect Presents a comprehensive collection of values and valuing in mathematics education

Abstract

Dieser Open Access-Band untersucht aus kultur- und medienwissenschaftlicher Perspektive das öffentliche Auftreten von Donald Trump und nimmt dabei insbesondere in den Blick, wie der US-amerikanische Präsident an der gesellschaftlichen Konfrontation unterschiedlicher politischer Gruppen partizipiert und diese kommunikativ weiter forciert. Diskutiert werden Trumps Mediengebrauch, seine Adressierungsstrategien und seine Politik der Affekte. Die Beiträge des Bandes rücken den „great disruptor“ in ein Spannungsfeld von Populärkultur, fragmentierter Öffentlichkeit und rhetorischer Feindsetzung.

Abstract

Il volume affronta il tema generale della famiglia con una particolare attenzione al suo rapporto con il lavoro, facendo riferimento a due categorie studiate dalle scienze sociali da differenti prospettive. L'opera è il risultato di una selezione fra i saggi ricevuti a partire dal bando della collana Hórisma “Famiglia, una prospettiva multidisciplinare” che ha voluto promuovere la riflessione di giovani studiosi – dottorandi, dottori di ricerca, assegnisti, ricercatori – disponibili a mettersi in gioco e a varcare i confini della propria disciplina, favorendo un confronto collettivo sui temi della famiglia attraverso la partecipazione a un progetto di approfondimento teorico ed empirico realizzato secondo un approccio multidisciplinare. I contributi raccolti hanno lo scopo di far emergere le trasformazioni che la famiglia sta vivendo evidenziando i processi di cambiamento della famiglia stessa e i rapporti che essa ha con diversi attori quali la scuola, le comunità di minori, il sindacato, le aziende e le istituzioni pubbliche.
