Size: 8.5" x 11"
Binding: Perfect Bound
Between JAH and the VAZIMBA, a TREATY of ALLIANCE had been concluded, several centuries ago, and its content is still operative on this day! Following the definition erroneously or misleadingly given through denatured Histories of Madagascar, the name "VAZIMBA” designates some Spiteful Spirits, who grant no toleration to people(s) who commit profanations against them; however,in fact, the name VAZIMBA naturally serves to call the first inhabitants of Madagascar who had been living there just after the Universal Deluge, already before the dislocation of the Continent of Gondwana from the Continent of Asia. The VAZIMBA People had already known very well the sole true proper name of God C ...

As people across the country are now experiencing the extreme weather conditions––droughts, tornados, floods, record breaking temperatures–– predicted in scientific reports, it is now time for teacher education and curriculum studies faculty to begin introducing reforms that enable classroom teachers to recognize when students are being socialized to take for granted ecologically unsustainable patterns of thinking. In addition to the toxic chemicals introduced by our consumer-dependent lifestyle, there is another major change that is altering the life prospects of students that also needs to be addressed in reforming teacher education and curriculum studies. That is, the long-standing tr ...

ISBN: 9780966037005
It is widely acknowledged that Gregory Bateson’s ideas have been influential in a number of fields. Unfortunately, the importance of his ideas for understanding why public schools and universities continue to perpetuate ecologically unsustainable ways of thinking has not been adequately recognized. Given the deepening ecological and economic crises, this book is particularly timely as it clarifies how Bateson’s five key ideas, when taken as a whole, provides the conceptual framework for introducing educational reforms that address both problems. That is, he explains why educators unconsciously continue to perpetuate the deep cultural assumptions that were constituted before there was ...

A Scholarly Analysis on the Intelligence of Sperm Whales, i.e. Moby Dick, and a New Theory on the Rescue of Ishmael. Multiple scholars provide evidence to the high intelligence and intrinsic emotions of the sperm whale in order to lend support to the thesis of the paper. Lastly, the author presents a new argument, and challenges the established norm to provide textual evidence to support the theory: it is Moby Dick, himself, who saves Ishmael’s life. Peer Reviewed: Yes Keywords: whale intelligence, whale emotions, whaling, Moby Dick, Captain Ahab, nautical catastrophes.

This latest book by Chet Bowers, The Way Forward: Educational Reforms that Focus on the Cultural Commons and the Linguistic Roots of the Ecological/Cultural Crises, provides a more in-depth examination of several themes he has introduced before, as well as an introduction to issues that other environmental and educational writers have ignored. The former includes understanding cultures, including daily cultural practices, as ecologies—and how these micro-ecologies affect the life-sustaining viability of natural ecologies. Also explored in greater depth are how the community-centered cultural commons represent the early stages of a post-industrial future, as well as how public schools, un ...

ISBN: 9781495303197
The Zeitgeist Movement Defined is the official, representative text of the global, non-profit sustainability advocacy organization known as The Zeitgeist Movement (TZM). This tediously sourced and highly detailed work argues for a large-scale change in human culture, specifically in the context of economic practice. The dominant theme is that the current socioeconomic system governing the world at this time has severe structural flaws, born out of primitive economic and sociological assumptions originating in our early history, where the inherent severity of these flaws went largely unnoticed. However, in the early 21st century, these problems have risen prominently, taking the conseq ...

This book is especially timely for reasons related to the current efforts on the part of several national organizations to promote sustainability reforms in courses in all academic disciplines. The American Association for Sustainability in Higher education is in the forefront of this reform effort. Replacing an inefficient campus infrastructures was easy when compared to the challenges of engaging faculty in discussions of how the content of their courses continue to reinforce the deep cultural assumptions that gave conceptual direction to the individualistic/consumer-dependent lifestyle that that is now widely recognized as unsustainable. The chapters address a number of especially dau ...
