Future Hell: Nuclear Fiction In Pursuit Of History, Trevor Doherty Jun 2009

Future Hell: Nuclear Fiction In Pursuit Of History, Trevor Doherty

Human Architecture: Journal of the Sociology of Self-Knowledge

What is a cyclical history? Why does humanity seem doomed to repeat the same mistakes over and over again? Are we doomed to this machine called fate? What is a soul, and how do I express it? Predicting what futures may lay ahead for humanity if we continue on some popular cultural paths, a body of twentieth century authors has created literary experiments designed to test the limits of human imagination. Nuclear warfare, artificial intelligence, intergalactic travel, and the nature of spirituality itself all come woven together in the texts, which are profoundly affected by enlightened science, the competitive state ...


A Response To Bruni And Sugden, Julie A. Nelson Jan 2009

A Response To Bruni And Sugden, Julie A. Nelson

The existential echo that reverberates through Darwish's language is a calling, a desire for home--home in the poetic corpus and home for the nation. Socio-critical analysis of Mahmoud Darwish's poetics about his homeland requires that the corpus of his works be treated almost as a literary anthropological philosophy by relativizing it ...


Asca Code Of Ethics And The Relevance Of Eastern Ethical Theories, Amy Cook, Rick Houser Jan 2009

Asca Code Of Ethics And The Relevance Of Eastern Ethical Theories, Amy Cook, Rick Houser

Counseling and School Psychology Faculty Publication Series

As schools become increasingly diverse through immigration and growth of minority groups, it is important that school counselors incorporate culturally sensitive ethical decision-making in their practice. The use of Western ethical theories in the application of professional codes of ethics provides a specific perspective in ethical decision- making, but may not provide school counselors with a broad cultural perspective. We discuss the use of Eastern theories of ethics (Taoism and Hinduism) and their relevance to the ASCA Ethical Standards for School Counselors to inform school counselors’ work with Asian immigrant students.
