Was Hitler rational? This question has spawned vociferous debates among historians, and has fascinated every layman who has ever dipped into a biography of Hitler. In Hitler and Abductive Logic, Ben Novak argues that Hitler was rational—one of the most logical political leaders of modern times—but not according to ordinary inductive or deductive logic. Instead, Hitler used a new form of logic called abductive logic, which he used as a "trick" to seduce crowds and rise to power. Now, for the first time, the method that Hitler employed is revealed so that it can be recognized and combated.

When Winston Churchill was a boy of sixteen, he already had a vision for his purpose in life. “This country will be subjected somehow to a tremendous invasion . . . I shall be in command of the defences of London . . . it will fall to me to save the Capital, to save the Empire.” It was a most unlikely prediction. Perceived as a failure for much of his life, Churchill was the last person anyone would have expected to rise to national prominence as prime minister and influence the fate of the world during World War II. But Churchill persevered, on a mission to achieve his purpose. God and Churchill tells the remarkable story of how one man, armed with belief in his divine destiny, embarked on a course to save Christian civilization when Adolf Hitler and the forces of evil stood opposed. It traces the personal, political, and spiritual path of one of history’s greatest leaders and offers hope for our own violent and troubled times. More than a spiritual biography, God and Churchill is also a deeply personal quest. Written by Jonathan Sandys (Churchill’s great-grandson) and former White House staffer Wallace Henley, God and Churchill explores Sandys’ intense search to discover his great-grandfather—and how it changed his own destiny forever.

Hitler and Nazi Germany: A History is a brief but comprehensive survey of the Third Reich based on current research findings that provides a balanced approach to the study of Hitler’s role in the history of the Third Reich. The book considers the economic, social, and political forces that made possible the rise and development of Nazism; the institutional, cultural, and social life of the Third Reich; World War II; and the Holocaust. World War II and the Holocaust are presented as logical outcomes of the ideology of Hitler and the Nazi movement. This new edition contains more information on the Kaiserreich (Imperial Germany), as well as Nazi complicity in the Reichstag Fire and increased discussion of consent and dissent during the Nazi attempt to create the ideal Volksgemeinschaft (people’s community). It takes a greater focus on the experiences of ordinary bystanders, perpetrators, and victims throughout the text, includes more discussion of race and space, and the final chapter has been completely revised. Fully updated, the book ensures that students gain a complete and thorough picture of the period and issues. Supported by maps, images, and thoroughly updated bibliographies that offer further reading suggestions for students to take their study further, the book offers the perfect overview of Hitler and the Third Reich.

Today we often look to our leaders in business, government, or the social sector, to make effective decisions in a complex world. Whether they are asked what steps to take to improve competitiveness in a global economy or to make tough ethical choices, well-trained leaders are critical to organizational effectiveness. Although we know much about leadership development for individuals after they take their first job, we know relatively little about their earlier experiences that contributed to their interest in leadership or subsequent effectiveness as leaders. This volume brings together researchers who explore leadership at different points before individuals enter the workforce and asks important questions surrounding definitions of leadership behavior, necessary leader skills and age-related leader tasks, factors contributing to development of leader identity, and ways to improve the process of leader development. With contributions from well-known leadership researchers such as Robert Sternberg, Howard Gardner, Bruce Avolio, and Susan Komives, the volume shows research evidence for factors such as early childhood and youth experiences on leadership development, which have implications for the way we understand and train leadership in today’s organizations.

Relevance In Argumentation

In Relevance in Argumentation, author Douglas Walton presents a new method for critically evaluating arguments for relevance. This method enables a critic to judge whether a move can be said to be relevant or irrelevant, and is based on case studies of argumentation in which an argument, or part of an argument, has been criticized as irrelevant. Walton's method is based on a new theory of relevance that incorporates techniques of argumentation theory, logic, and artificial intelligence. The work uses a case-study approach with numerous examples of controversial arguments, strategies of attack in argumentation, and fallacies. Walton reviews ordinary cases of irrelevance in argumentation, and uses them as a basis to advance and develop his new theory of irrelevance and relevance. The volume also presents a clear account of the technical problems in the previous attempts to define relevance, including an analysis of formal systems of relevance logic and an explanation of the Grecian notion of conversational relevance. This volume is intended for graduate and advanced undergraduate courses in those fields using argumentation theory--especially philosophy, linguistics, cognitive science and communication studies, in addition to argumentation. The work also has practical use, as it applies theory directly to familiar examples of argumentation in daily and professional life. With a clear and comprehensive method for determining relevance and irrelevance, it can be convincingly applied to highly significant practical problems about relevance, including those in legal and political argumentation.

Classical American Pragmatism

This collection provides a thorough grounding in the philosophy of American pragmatism by examining the views of four principal thinkers - Charles S. Peirce, William James, John Dewey, and George Herbert Mead - on issues of central and enduring importance to life in human society. Pragmatism emerged as a characteristically American response to an inheritance of British empiricism. Presenting a radical reconception of the nature of experience, pragmatism represents a belief that ideas are not merely to be contemplated but must be put into action, tested and refined through experience. At the same time, the American pragmatists argued for an emphasis on human community that would offset the deep-seated American bias in favor of individualism. Far from being a relic of the past, pragmatism offers a dynamic and substantive approach to questions of human conduct, social values, scientific inquiry, religious belief, and aesthetic experience that lie at the center of contemporary life. This volume is an invaluable introduction to a school of thought that remains vital, instructive, and provocative.

This book deals with two aspects of interpersonal communication - the content aspect and the relationship aspect. Concepts like meta-communication are analysed, as well as reductionism, social system or aspect. The study criticizes approaches toward a Philosophy of Communication which start from notions like Ordinary Language or Language Instinct or Communication as Oriented Toward (Mutal) Understanding. This essay gives a vivid, sometimes witty and polemical discussion of several points linked to themes like idealisation or systemic concept of person, and it proposes an attempt to base a conception of communication on the constructivist's understanding of the term of observation. The way how a comprehension of transaction is shaped proves to be useful for understanding emotions as an element of human life and social interaction.

'Female' is a disarmingly simple title, but here's a book that deals with an age-old problem; why are men and women so different? History hasn't been much help - history has been written by men from the very earliest date. But carvings and drawings on pyramids and frescoes from Greece show women as a forceful presence: But art has always been kind to women. Archaeology and anthropology tell a different story; women have always been a vitally strong force in early human society, but patriarchal forces usurped their influence as soon as humans departed from their primate origins. They did so because a vital mutation conferred recall; the ability to think and plan ahead, based on remembered events. So humans fashioned tools, women being prime sources of inventive ideas. Ethnology (studies of societies as yet unaffected by industrial production for example), shows how women play a crucial role in exploiting natural resources; garnering fruit and foodstuffs in a way that preserves the seasonal bounty. Nature replenishes itself under her care. 'Sensory Intuition', as defined here, is a natural instinct that guides her behaviour. But the baskets she made, the hides she sewed, the fish traps made from woven reeds or branches, perished with time. Unlike the first flint tools - like those discovered by Sonia Harmand near Olduvai Gorge in Africa - that date from 3,500,000 years ago ( the Earth's Magnetic field flips into reverse periodically and give a precise time-line, written in the stone). But nothing fashioned from natural materials lasts long. Scientists have ignored this 'abductive' approach as applied to pre-history. But we know that a huge swathe of time, perhaps ten million years, equates better with the long pedigree of humans as thinking beings. Women were there, crucially shaping human survival. In the first epochs of human advance, men were not necessarily the powerful, dominant creatures grunting their way through today's comic books and films. The 'Recall Mutation' provided the planning, the inventiveness and the skill in the use of up-to-the-minute weaponry that all other creatures lack. Men, unencumbered by the main tribe, formed skilled bands using the 'linear logic' bequeathed by recall to plan both strategy and use of new weaponry. Linear logic led us to invent endless ways to dominate the biosphere. Men's linear logic is present everywhere; once determined on a task, changing course is pretty well impossible. The recall paradigm is a new way of explaining how 'mankind' has come to dominate the earth; and why patriarchal organisations still rule. Nature is suffering under a burden of human exploitation. We need again the female talent for 'garnering' resources, taking only enough to ensure supplies for the future. This ethic we need to re-learn. The female still has this nature. It should be re-evaluated and respected, not subjected to 'masculinisation'. We cannot remove the mutation from an altered mentality but we can acknowledge that humans depend exclusively upon 'mother nature', that the female approach may be the only one to save us from our fate.
