Each can be read individually, he says, but together they display a methodological progress from relative triviality towards what looks like an interpretive deep end, where the philosophical ladders do not quite reach the bottom, or where philosophy ends. His topics include beliefs and desires, push and pull theories of desire, René Girard and mimetic desire, lost in Kafka's America, and sadomasochistic desire. (2019 Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR)

Bloomsbury, 2018. Hardbound. New Book. Hardbound. Linguists have studied the word some from formal semantic perspectives, say Le and Zhang, but they are the first to explore its vagueness, with a particular focus on its elasticity and indispensable role in communication. Drawing empirical evidence from native speakers of American English and from Chinese and Vietnamese learners of English, they compare how the two groups use some elastically for strategic purposes. They cover theoretical foundations, methodology, linguistic analysis of some, pragmatics of some, general discussion, and implications. (2018 Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR)

Description:
Groningen University Library, 2011. Paperback. New Book. Paperback. In his 2010 doctoral dissertation at Groningen University, Smit investigates whether it is necessary to research surface scatters within the framework of archaeological heritage management. There are thousands of scatters, mostly of flint artifacts and sometimes pottery fragments from the Stone Age, in the Dutch provinces of Groningen, Friesland, and Drenthe, he says, and most archaeologists believe that studying them is too expensive for the little information they provide. He delves into what kinds of information are present in surface scatters and which types of research or approaches are likely to retrieve it. His topics include the research of early prehistoric sites in Dutch archaeology, from flint scatters to meaningful categories, regional or site-oriented research, and the use wear of past landscapes. He has not indexed his work. Distributed in North America by The David Brown Book Co. (2011 Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR)

Among the topics are European integration and fears about job losses, the relative deservingness of the unemployed in the eyes of the European public, conventional and unconventional political participation, religious vitality and church attendance in Europe, whether public good morality in Europe is an impact of communist rule, and whether country-level trust is associated with self-assessed health in Europe.

Covering first the theory of value, then contemporary capitalism, he considers such topics as the relevance of Marx's theory of value, transforming the transformation problem: why the "new interpretation" is a wrong turning, inflation theory: a critical literature review and a new research agenda, 13 things you need to know about neoliberalism, and crisis in neoliberalism or crisis of neoliberalism.

BRILL, 2015. Hardbound. New Book. Hardbound. In this study, the author argues that the logical structure of Marx’s analysis of the commodity corresponds to the logical structure of the development of substance in Hegel’s Phenomenology of Spirit. The author claims that Marx’s analysis of the commodity results in his conception of Capital as substance in the form of alienation. The defensibility of Marx’s idea that a sustainable society is not possible with a free market is evaluated. Some works discussed include Economic-Philosophical Manuscripts, Capital, Phenomenology of Spirit, Philosophy of Right, and The Realm of Culture. The book’s readership includes scholars in political science, history of economics, and philosophy. (2015 Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR)

It considers the changing motivations of young women, the role of college education in their career goals and marital and reproductive plans, and the elements of female autonomy and agency. It describes the history of female career ambition and how demographic changes have impacted gender relations; the educational cultures in Allahabad, Mumbai, Vadodara, and Bengaluru; the role of fathers, birth order, and other aspects of family in influencing career expectations of daughters; class and gender roles; the gains, losses, and drawbacks of career ambitions; and the role of self-identity, middle-class identities, and social reproduction.

Sunder (a retired officer of the Indian Administrative Service) explores the influence of religion, primarily Christianity and Hinduism, on the formation of values in the Indian Civil Service in British India and its successor after independence, the Indian Administrative Service, as it relates to the problem of administrative corruption, which she argues has become a major problem following the 1980s after years of relative incorruptibility. She conducts the investigation by reviewing the history of the Service from the formation of the East India Company onwards, examining the influence of religious and secular moral thought on British society and its reflections in the Codes of Conduct of the Service, analyzing a survey concerned with the existing ethical values of the Service offices of Karnataka, considering the roots of these values in the ethical teachings of the Hindu scriptures, and finally offering an evaluation of the causes of administrative… Read more
