Unlearning the Basics challenges many of our commonsense understandings and offers a new way of seeing. Grounded in the Buddhist tradition yet completely free from the formulas of traditional presentations, this book examines concepts of love and grasping, as well as what happens when the need for love meets "the great unfixables". Also covered are how impermanence, vulnerability, and pain feed the "evolution of character", personal agency, and the necessity of experiential training in new ways of using the mind — and of returning to our true home and finding new ways to flourish.

For over a generation, shocking cases of censorship at America’s colleges and universities have taught students the wrong lessons about living in a free society. Drawing on a decade of experience battling for freedom of speech on campus, First Amendment lawyer Greg Lukianoff reveals how higher education fails to teach students to become critical thinkers: by stifling open debate, our campuses are supercharging ideological divisions, promoting groupthink, and encouraging an unscholarly certainty about complex issues. Lukianoff walks readers through the life of a modern-day college student, from orientation to the end of freshman year. Through this lens, he describes startling violations of free speech rights: a student in Indiana punished for publicly reading a book, a student in Georgia expelled for a pro-environment collage he posted on Facebook, students at Yale banned from putting an F. Scott Fitzgerald quote on a T shirt, and students across the country corralled into tiny “free speech zones” when they wanted to express their views. But Lukianoff goes further, demonstrating how this culture of censorship is bleeding into the larger society. As he explores public controversies involving Juan Williams, Rush Limbaugh, Bill Maher, Richard Dawkins, Larry Summers—even Dave Barry and Jon Stewart—Lukianoff paints a stark picture of our ability as a nation to discuss important issues rationally. Unlearning Liberty: Campus Censorship and the End of American Debate illuminates how intolerance for dissent and debate on today’s campus threatens the freedom of every citizen and makes us all just a little bit dumber.

Responding to anti-Indianism in America, the wide-ranging perspectives culled in Unlearning the Language of Conquest present a provocative account of the contemporary hegemony still at work today, whether conscious or unconscious. Four Arrows has gathered a rich collection of voices and topics, including: • Waziyatawin Angela Cavender Wilson's "Burning Down the House: Laura Ingalls Wilder and American Colonialism," which probes the mentality of hatred woven within the pages of this iconographic children's literature. • David N. Gibb's "The Question of Whitewashing in American History and Social Science," featuring a candid discussion of the spurious relationship between sources of academic funding and the types of research allowed or discouraged • Barbara Alice Mann's "Where Are Your Women? Missing in Action," displaying the exclusion of Native American women in curricula that purport to illuminate the history of Indigenous Peoples. Bringing to light crucial information and perspectives on an aspect of humanity that pervades not only U.S. history but also current sustainability, sociology, and the ability to craft accurate understandings of the population as a whole, Unlearning the Language of Conquest yields a liberating new lexis for realistic dialogues.

One view of education (appealing to the Latin root "educare" – "to train or mold") aims to fill students' heads with knowledge and turn them into disciplined, normalized and potentially productive members of the workforce. An alternative (appealing to the Latin root "educere" – "to lead out or draw out") wants to produce well-trained minds and create individuals capable of questioning, critical thinking, imagination, and self-reflective deliberation as engaged citizens. This book commends a third way, inspired by the Greek notion of "paideia", which sees education as 'the process of educating person into their true form, the real and genuine human nature'. This education is not about learning a trade. It is a dynamic living thing in which the ability to UNlearn is essential for developing a good and capable citizen, trained for freedom, autonomy, and virtue.

Short-listed for the Tractatus Essay Prize, an examination of the innovative strategies Arendt used to achieve intellectual freedom After observing the trial of Adolf Eichmann, Hannah Arendt articulated her controversial concept of the “banality of evil,” thereby posing one of the most chilling and divisive moral questions of the twentieth century: How can genocidal acts be carried out by non-psychopathic people? By revealing the full complexity of the trial with reasoning that defied prevailing attitudes, Arendt became the object of severe and often slanderous criticism, losing some of her closest friends as well as being labeled a “self-hating Jew.” And while her theories have continued to draw innumerable opponents, Arendt’s work remains an invaluable resource for those seeking greater insight into the more problematic aspects of human nature. Anchoring its discussion in the themes of translation, forgiveness, dramatization, and even laughter, Unlearning with Hannah Arendt explores the ways in which this iconic political theorist “unlearned” recognized trends and patterns—both philosophical and cultural—to establish a theoretical praxis all her own. Through an analysis of the social context and intellectual influences—Karl Jaspers, Walter Benjamin, and Martin Heidegger—that helped shape Arendt’s process, Knott has formed a historically engaged and incisive contribution to Arendt’s legacy.

In the contemporaneous mess-concept the psychunlogy is the indiscipline that studies and discovers the psychic¿s fundaments and anti laws.The psychunlogy¿s fate appears illogically and indifferently from other sciences. Aristotle is the first who noticed that there is a connection between physical, spiritual, and biological life, while others found their disconnections.Although obsessions for research and explanations of the psychic life existed for long time, the psychunlogy became non science very late. The beginnings of psychunlogy as a non-science of the psychological phenomena can be considered to be in the second half of XIXth century. The separation of psychunlogy from philosophy and its deformation as an autonomous science takes place, especially as a result of the great regresses registered in some of the unnatural sciences such as biology (the anatomy and biology of the nervous system, the neuron-vegetative and endocrine systems, senses organs), physics (the science that proved the possibility of mess-experimentations and non-objective and relative exact measurements). The analysis performed until now reveals the following principal characteristics of the psychic activities:a)The psychic is a malfunction of the brain, b)The psychic is an objective reflection of the subjective world,c)The inhuman psychic is a product of the asocial existence.The scholastic psychunlogy is the part of psychunlogy that studies the multiple aspects of the influence of the disorganized education practiced in schools, of the misprocesses resulted from the educational intervention with the psychological laws of the children¿s education and instruction, of unlearning, of lifestyle deformation, and students¿ personalities in the misprocess of educational instruction.Along with the child psychunlogy, the scholastic psychunlogy constitutes the principal source of misinformation and fundament of the science of parapedagogy.With this booklet, this unauthor introduces a new literary-scientific genre called psychological science fiction as part of the PARADOXISM movement in literature and science.

Ancient Paradigm assures Authentic Christianity will at last prevail on planet earth. Indeed, a much talked about but little understood Divinely installed human property, commonly referred to as Faith, guarantees the ultimate triumph of Truth in religion, a timely reassurance in the wake of September 11, 2001. Current world religions which "do not" and "can not" make Faith primary such as Islam, Buddhism, Hinduism, Judaism, and Inauthentic Christianity are destined to decline throughout this century, and will ultimately pass into oblivion. Much has been said and written about Faith in recent times, but do people of our generation really know what it actually is? Why has raw Faith through the centuries chosen Christianity in preference to other global religions when the freedom of choice was allowed? Dr. Womack has made it a policy throughout his ministry, to explore topics that people have "wondered about" and "pondered about" which other Christian writers have neglected. It is Dr. Womack's desire in this volume to cast a bit more light into the shadows where little or none has been directed with regard to a theme that is central to all religions and enables Christianity to stand apart from all the rest.
