Tool-Being offers a new assessment of Martin Heidegger's famous tool-analysis, and with it, an audacious reappraisal of Heidegger's legacy to twenty-first-century philosophy. Every reader of Being and Time is familiar with the opposition between readiness-to-hand (Zuhandenheit) and presence-at-hand (Vorhandenheit), but commentators usually follow Heidegger's wishes in giving this distinction a limited scope, as if it applied only to tools in a narrow sense. Graham Harman contests Heidegger's own interpretation of tool-being, arguing that the opposition between tool and broken tool is not merely a provisional stage in his philosophy, but rather its living core. The extended concept of tool-being developed here leads us not to a theory of human practical activity but to an ontology of objects themselves. Tool-Being urges a fresh and concrete research into the secret contours of objects. Written in a lively and colorful style, it will be of great interest to anyone intrigued by Heidegger and anyone open to new trends in present-day philosophy.

This book: The Five Areas of Being Human: An Assessment Tool for Therapeutic Care challenges those professionals in the business of therapeutic care to more coherently organize effective methods of behavioral assessment for the purpose of identifying the origins of problematic behaviors related to mental health and/or social problems modeled by individuals. Likewise it is this author’s belief that the best practices for organizing such a logical behavioral assessment is identifying the five areas of being human: spiritual, physical, social, psychological and vocational and developing relevant questions in association with each distinctive area; implementing effective interviewing methods and selecting appropriate therapeutic strategies. Moreover, it is the belief of this author that many persons experiencing therapeutic or medical relationships with psychiatrists, social workers, licensed practical counselors, medical physicians, etc. suffer from untreated mental health and physical conditions because this assessment model is never identified and applied by such practicing professionals. In summation, for certain, identifying the five areas of being human and developing relevant questions to ask in a therapeutic or medical relationship will effectively assist in actualizing a more cogent and helpful assessment necessary for treating and promoting healing toward those persons suffering from mental and/or physical debilitating health conditions.

Do we buy technology in schools without questioning why? How many times have you been amazed by a piece of technology? If you're like me, then quite often! I love technology, I love the way it has changed the way I work, how it has inspired me and how it has enabled me to publish things I never thought possible 10 years ago. Now, let's look at the children in my class, the digital natives. The technology has always been there, they've never been in a classroom without an interactive whiteboard, laptops, iPads or a projector whirring away in the background. But how much of this technology has been used to improve their learning outcomes? Using technology in the classroom needs a complete change in mindset and rethink of your approach to children's learning. This book is a journey through my times in Primary Schools and how I have used technology to improve the outcomes of the children.

Husserl And Heidegger On Being In The World

It is a study of the phenomenological philosophies of Husserl and Heidegger. Through a critical discussion including practically all previously published English and German literature on the subject, the aim is to present a thorough and evenhanded account of the relation between the two. The book provides a detailed presentation of their respective projects and methods, and examines several of their key phenomenological analyses, centering on the phenomenon of being-in-the-world. It offers new perspectives on Husserlian and Heideggerian phenomenology, e.g. concerning the importance of Husserl's phenomenology of the body, the relationship between the Husserlian concept of "constitution" and Heidegger's notion of "transcendence", as well as in its argument that "being" designates the central phenomenon for both phenomenologists. Though the study sacrifices nothing in terms of argumentative rigor or interpretative detail, it is written in such a way as to be accessible and rewarding to non-specialists and specialists alike.
