In stories, essays, and recipes, women reminisce about food to reveal a myriad of highly charged meanings. Personal reflections illustrate the metaphorical warmth a kitchen environment generates, strengthening familial ties. Representing well-known as well as emerging writers, this wide-ranging collection delineates just how food sustains ties that bind and provides satisfying reminders of the choices women have today."

Excellent condition, only very light wear overall. Jacket has a little light soiling. 263 pages. Interior clean and unmarked. Publishers Weekly: "Genes are credited or blamed these days for more and more human behaviors and predicaments, but gambling, courtesy and even greed? Phelan, a professor of economics at Harvard, and Burnham, a biology professor at UCLA, focus not on the mechanisms of particular genes but on the effects of more general evolutionary patterns. In this enormously entertaining sociobiological overview, they argue that humans are well adapted to the environment in which we originated, but since we are no longer hunter-gatherers, instincts that evolved under those conditions can lead to harmful excess in today's world...."

MIT Press 1986 0262530503 / 9780262530507 Softcover Good; 
Cover has moderate edge/corner wear, some creasing. About the first 1/3 of pages have some highlighting, rest of pages are clean and unmarked. B/w illus. 164 pages. In Matter and Consciousness, Paul Churchland clearly presents the advantages and disadvantages of such difficult issues in philosophy of mind as behaviorism, reductive materialism, functionalism, and eliminative materialism. Churchland organizes and clarifies the new theoretical and experimental results of the natural sciences for a wider philosophical audience, observing that this research bears directly on questions concerning the basic elements of cognitive activity and their implementation in real physical systems. (How is it, he asks, that living creatures perform some cognitive tasks so swiftly and easily, where computers do them only badly or not at all? ) Most significant for philosophy, Churchland asserts, is the support these results tend to give to the reductive and the eliminative versions of materialism. Paul M. Churchland is Professor of Philosophy at the University of California, San Diego. (os); 8vo

Jacket has very light edgewear, light scuffing, slight soiling to rear and a little age tanning to edges. This book is the product of the author's long search into the meaning of life, which he maintains is like a giant stage production. The stage, the Earth, is set up with scenes of enchanting scenery in which the living organisms act. Man, as an actor, is born into different ethnic groups with distinct features call "makeups".....Despite the role one portrays, it is how one acts that makes one a hero, a villain, or a victim. The hero enacts his role to the best of his ability, whether life is a trajedy or comedy, until the curtain falls... (400) ; 8vo - over 7" - 9" Tall

Profoundly important, and considerably more informed than better-known pop-science treatments of chaos theory. Very highly recommended. Steven Jay Gould: Kauffman has done more than anyone else to supply the key missing piece of the propensity for self-organization that can join the random and the deterministic forces of evolution in a satisfactory theory of life's order. ; 8vo 8" - 9" tall

1989 reprint. Very nice condition. Pages clean and unmarked, light age tanning to page edges. Cover has slight corner/edge wear and old price sticker on rear. The principles of Ki lie in bringing to light man's natural strength and his (her) hidden natural abilities. ; Large 8vo 9" - 10" tall; Review: "A Good Introduction to Ki ...... Book of Ki is a good basic introduction to the use of energy and how your mind and body work. It contains many useful and instructional photographs and does a good job of explaining what ki is and how it works. It stays away from a lot of the more mystical aspects and is pretty basic. Koichi Tohei states that "To extend Ki you must believe that you are doing so. In other words, you must use your mind positively." Many books lead you to believe that Ki is some mystical force that only comes from special training, but this book explains that it has a lot to do with your mind and your intention, and then goes on to give you basic instructions to begin to develop the use of this energy which we all have access to. A good introduction and worth reading if you have any interest in this part of the martial arts." (315os,0514)

18 Malachowski, Alan RICHARD RORTY
Princeton University Press 2002 0691057087 / 9780691057088 First Edition Softcover New 
New book, sealed in shrink wrap. ; Philosophy Now Series; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 200 pages; Richard Rorty is one of the world's most influential living thinkers. He is notorious for contending that the traditional, foundation-building and truth-seeking ambitions of systematic philosophy should be set aside in favor of a more pragmatic, conversational, hermeneutically guided project. This challenge has not only struck at the heart of philosophy but has ricocheted across other disciplines, both contesting their received self-images and opening up new avenues of inquiry in the process. Alan Malachowski provides an authoritative overview of Rorty's considerable body of work and a general assessment of his impact both within philosophy and in the humanities more broadly....

THE SOCIALLY RESPONSIVE SELF  Social Theory and Professional Ethics, May, Larry
19 May, Larry THE SOCIALLY RESPONSIVE SELF Social Theory and Professional Ethics
University Of Chicago Press 1996 0226511723 / 9780226511726 First Edition Softcover Very Good 
Book has only light wear, light scuffing to cover, slight wear at corners. Main flaw is approx. 10-12 pages with some highlighting and/or pen underlining within book. Pages are otherwise clean. ; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 217 pages; Larry May argues that socially responsive individuals need not be self-sacrificing or overly conscientious. According to May, a person's integrity and moral responsibility are shaped and limited not just by conscience but also by socialization and moral support from the communities to which he or she belongs. Applying his theory of responsibility to professional ethics, May contends that current methods of professional socialization should be changed so that professionals are not expected to ignore considerations of personal well-being, family, or community. For instance, lawyers should not place client loyalty above concerns for the common good; doctors should not place the physical well-being of patients above their mental and spiritual well-being; scientists and engineers should not feel obliged to blow the whistle on fraud and corruption unless their professional groups protect them from retaliation. This book should prove provocative reading for philosophers, political scientists, social theorists, professionals of many stripes, and ethicists. [307-osl]
