Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Revolutionary and evolutionary theorists have very different views about change; Fein writes in favour of evolution. He proposes an integrated model of social evolution, one that accounts for the complexity, inconclusiveness, and impediments that characterize social transformations.This multi-dimensional approach recognizes that change is always saturated in conflict. Major changes are rarely initiated by conscious decisions that are automatically implemented; power and morality generally control the direction that significant alterations take. Fein explains how the social generalist dilemma places our need for both flexibility and stability in opposition to each other such that non-rational mechanisms are needed to produce a solution. He also describes how an "inverse force rule" dictates that small societies are bound together by strong social forces, whereas large ones are secured by weak forces. This suggests that social roles are likely to become professionalized over time.If social change is, in fact, analogous to natural rather than artificial selection, we may be in the midst of an only partially predictable middle class revolution. Indeed, the current impasse between liberals and conservatives may be evidence that we are in the consolidation phase of this process. Should this be the case, a paradigm shift, not a classical revolution, is in our future.
Download or read book Revolution and Evolution in Private Law PDF or another Format written by Sarah Worthington and published by Bloomsbury Publishing. This book was released on 2018-01-11 with total page 336 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The development of private law across the common law world is typically portrayed as a series of incremental steps, each one delivered as a result of judges dealing with marginally different factual circumstances presented to them for determination. This is said to be the common law method. According to this process, change might be assumed to be gradual, almost imperceptible. If this were true, however, then even Darwinian-style evolution – which is subject to major change-inducing pressures, such as the death of the dinosaurs – would seem unlikely in the law, and radical and revolutionary paradigms shifts perhaps impossible. And yet the history of the common law is to the contrary. The legal landscape is littered with quite remarkable revolutionary and evolutionary changes in the shape of the common law. The essays in this volume explore some of the highlights in this fascinating revolutionary and evolutionary development of private law. The contributors expose the nature of the changes undergone and their significance for the future direction of travel. They identify the circumstances and the contexts which might have provided an impetus for these significant changes. The essays range across all areas of private law, including contract, tort, unjust enrichment and property. No area has been immune from development. That fact itself is unsurprising, but an extended examination of the particular circumstances and contexts which delivered some of private law's most important developments has its own special significance for what it might indicate about the shape, and the shaping, of private law regimes in the future.

Download or read book Orchestrating Human-Centered Design PDF or another Format written by Guy Boy and published by Springer Science & Business Media. This book was released on 2012-10-17 with total page 212 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The time has come to move into a more humanistic approach of technology and to understand where our world is moving to in the early twenty-first century. The design and development of our future products needs to be orchestrated, whether they be conceptual, technical or organizational. Orchestrating Human-Centered Design presents an Orchestra model that attempts to articulate technology, organizations and people. Human-centered design (HCD) should not be limited to local/short-term/linear engineering, but actively focus on global/long-term/non-linear design, and constantly identify emergent properties from the use of artifacts. Orchestrating Human-Centered Design results from incremental syntheses of courses the author has given at the Florida Institute of Technology in the HCD PhD program. It is focused on technological and philosophical concepts that high-level managers, technicians and all those interested in the design of artifacts should consider. Our growing software -intensive world imposes better knowledge on cognitive engineering, life-critical systems, complexity analysis, organizational design and management, modeling and simulation, and advanced interaction media, and this well-constructed and informative book provides a road map for this.

Download or read book The Tea Party Papers Volume I PDF or another Format written by Bill Miller and published by Xlibris Corporation. This book was released on 2012-08 with total page 474 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Our American government began with a revolutionary idea. Alexis de Tocqueville called the "evolutionary process of revolution" wherein society evolves and institutes sweeping changes in government. The government of the United States was the most unique creation of human history since it was an actual collaboration between Nature and the Individual, for Nature and the Individual, with the express purpose of facilitating and improving that relationship. It took all of humanity's history, its successes and failures along with Nature's tools of inspiration and evolution for the conception to manifest itself, until a government of the Individuals, by the Individuals, for the Individual," had come into being. The individual citizens of the United Colonies were "living in a state of grace with nature" and the society they made up created a clear mirror image of themselves, including internal equilibriums intended to preserve their self actualization process. A few years later, another revolution took place, one de Tocqueville would call the "political kind." This revolution occurred in France, it would be the precursor for many other modern revolutions wherein one Centralized Collective Authority replaces another and where government attempts to impose its will on society. Today, in America this spiritual battle continues. On one side is the Tea Party Patriots carrying on the spiritual tradition of our Founders and Framers, on the other side those who look toward the archaic Eurocentric and Asiatic concepts of an all powerful Centralized Collective Authority.

This book was released on 1991-11-12 with total page 240 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Originally written in 1964, this famous text is a study of the classical theory of charged particles. Many applications treat electrons as point particles. At the same time, there is a widespread belief that the theory of point particles is beset with various difficulties such as an infinite electrostatic self-energy, a rather doubtful equation of motion which admits physically meaningless solutions, violation of causality and others. The classical theory of charged particles has been largely ignored and has been left in an incomplete state since the discovery of quantum mechanics. Despite the great efforts of men such as Lorentz, Abraham, Poincaré, and Dirac, it is usually regarded as a “lost cause”. But thanks to progress made just a few years ago, the author is able to resolve the various problems and to complete this unfinished theory successfully.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Finally buttressed with Natures bounty, fortified with Natures gifts, testifying to Natures truth we must be ready to take a leap in faith. The hardest leap of faith to believe in; is a leap of faith in each other, in the individual. In the end the only way a government of the Individuals, by the Individuals for the Individual can long endure on the face of the Earth. Faith in God alone cannot suffice for such a government to work. It is the most necessary prerequisite for such a government to exist. But it cannot retain it cannot nurture it because the government is a covenant a pact made between God and the individual. If we lose faith in the individual we break the sacred pact. Being granted so many gifts the last act is in our own hands we are the City on the Hill when we believe we are the City on the Hill. When we act the part we are the Light of the world and the Inspiration to the World. It is really simple, if enough individuals carry out this leap of faith, a new critical mass will be reached, and a miracle will turn the tide in our affairs once more and we like the patriots of old will once again fulfill our own self-actualization process and bequeath to our posterity the ability and responsibility to reach their own.

This book was released on 1994-07-01 with total page 429 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This book presents a comprehensive, extended, and systematic analysis of social theory as it developed between the two World Wars, a period during which major transformation occurred. Centering on the continuities, on the one hand, and discontinuities on the other, in substantive theory, it deals with the major ideas of Cooley, Ellwood, Park, Thomas, Ogburn, Bernard, Chapin, Mead, Faris, Hankins, MacIver, Reuter, Lundberg, H.P. Becker, Parsons, Znaniecki, Sorokin, and Blumer. Finally, the problematic relevancy of the past for the present is directly confronted. The author examines how basic assumptions of theory in particular periods have used relatively unique schema and generated considerable controversy.
