Publisher: Cosimo, Inc.
Before "New Age" there was "New Thought," a philosophy that sought God through metaphysics and was wildly popular in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. American mystic and bestselling author RALPH WALDO TRINE (1866-1958) was one of the most significant writers on New Thought principles, and here, in this charming 1921 volume, Trine reveals some of the ideas that he found "true and valuable," including: . the power of intution, and the necessity of trusting it . why it's important to cultivate aloneness and silence . how to open to the vibrations of everything and everyone around us . the most vital lessons from the teachings of Jesus . and more. A commanding writer and a provocative philosopher, Trine was a man ahead of his time... and perhaps still is today.

This book consists of a series of essays written by the author following his retirement from Sun Oil Company (now renamed Sunoco) in the 1980’s. They are based on a life-changing experience by him at the age of 36 which showed him that all men and women are possessed of unlimited potential to achieve nearly anything that they desire. As a result of this experience he taught an adult education class for two years entitled “Realize Your Potential”. As quoted on the dedication page to this book, “God has made us but little lower than Himself and has placed all things under our feet.” An earlier book was published by the author last year entitled “What Manner of Man is This?” about the life of Jesus. Like St Paul the author agrees that “all things work together for good for those who love God and who are called according to his purpose.” (Romans 8:28) and that “we can do all things through Christ who strengthens us.” (Philippians 4:13). All of these essays as well as the chapters in his previous book may be found on his website at www.johnwhawkins.com. His previous book may also be purchased by going to this website.

This text helps teach pre-service teachers the art of inquiry--instilling in students a sense of wonder, curiosity, asking questions, looking for answers, and making sense of the world in different ways. The authors see teaching as an art that supports the learner in multiple ways, using different tools that are responsive to their individual orientation or to their multiple intelligences. Teaching as Inquiry is based on best practice and centers around the philosophies of Reggio Emilia, as well as Dewey, Vygotsky, Piaget, Gardner and others. The book has a unique structure that focuses on helping future teachers understand the theory and apply it practically. Each chapter begins with a story from the classroom, followed by a list of questions to be considered throughout the chapter. "Think About It" boxes ask students to pause and reflect, and each chapter ends with suggestions for "Getting Started" as well as Web resources and suggested readings.

Author: Benedetto Croce
Originally published in 1949, Croce’s essays on political, philosophic and aesthetic subjects, selected from both his earlier and later writings possess a remarkable underlying unity. The political essays which form a major part of this volume display a criticism, either direct or implied of the mass creeds and movements that subordinate the individual to history. They combine a passionate belief in liberty with critical and historical judgment.

Life itself wants to live. All knowledge could be packed into a pyramid, where at the tip, only one word is present: life. The word "life" by itself does not have enough meaning, and its definition does not give all the necessary information about its various types of existence. Humanity has an abundance of knowledge, and yet we can detect that any doing or thinking can, in the end, be reduced to "life." Therefore, we have a hierarchy of importance. Life will probably only be completely understood once all information has been collected, then evaluated, and associated - an impossible task, due to continuous creation of new knowledge and discoveries, and changes in perspectives, which require information to be evaluated and associated again. Perhaps a few main points will suffice to have orientation in life, and any knowledge regarding these main points can be expanded or replaced without changing the quality in understanding life significantly. My Philosophy provides a few main points that are listed in the pyramid of knowledge directly below "life." The brief corollaries in My Philosophy may not be understood right away, and are the basis for the book Philosophy of Life, where life is addressed in more detail. It is like life itself, which can only be understood by having accumulated large amounts of information and personal experiences. The reader of My Philosophy will probably gain a deeper insight after having read Philosophy of Life and will therefore be able to compare and evaluate his personal experiences.

Since the collapse of the Soviet Union the Ministry of Education of the Kyrgyz Republic has included a few social science disciplines in the list of the Educational State Standards, though the content of these subjects and teaching methodologies are still weak. One of the problems, which I constantly face in Kyrgyzstan when developing a new course, is the terrible shortage of teaching/reading materials of non-Soviet authors. A few books in Russian/Kyrgyz on Political Culture, for example, cannot give diversity of theories for analytical discussions and critical choice. Two year work of collecting study materials on the subject has given me today an opportunity to develop western type of courses on Political Culture, Sociology and Intercultural Communication, which I am currently offering to University students. Yet, no textbook in Kyrgyz language on Political Sciences is still being written/translated.

Using factors extrapolated from historical and social science literatures to frame the observations of twenty current U.S. piano teachers, A Portrait of Contemporary U.S. Teachers of Piano: A Musical Journey explores the contemporary U.S. piano teacher through a social science lens. Drawing on many interviews and on her personal experience with teaching piano, Barbara Stolz argues that each teacher is an artist and a pedagogue, teaching approaches are eclectic and pragmatic, and knowing each student is paramount.
