Book Excerpt :

Pain is an evolutionary and adaptive mechanism to prevent harm to an individual. Beyond this, how it is defined, expressed, and borne is dictated culturally. Thus, the study of pain requires a holistic approach crossing cultures, disciplines, and time. This volume explores how and why pain-inducing behaviors are selected, including their potential to demonstrate individuality, navigate social hierarchies, and express commitment to an ideal. It also explores how power dynamics affect individual choice, at times requiring self-induced suffering. Taking bioanthropological and bioarchaeological approaches, this volume focuses on those who purposefully seek pain to show that, while often viewed as “exotic,” the pervasiveness of pain-inducing practices is more normative than expected. Theory and practice are employed to re-conceptualize pain as a strategic path towards achieving broader individual and societal goals. Past and present motivations for self-inflicted pain, its socio-political repercussions, and the physical manifestations of repetitive or long-term pain inducing behaviors are examined. Chapters span geographic and temporal boundaries and a wide variety of activities to illustrate how purposeful pain is used by individuals for personal expression and manipulated by political powers to maintain the status quo. This volume reveals how bioarchaeology illuminates paleopathology, how social theory enhances bioarchaeology, and how ethnography benefits from a longer temporal perspective.

Book Short Summary:

This volume examines an often taken for granted concept—that of the concept itself. How do we picture what concepts are, what they do, how they arise in the course of everyday life? Challenging conventional approaches that treat concepts as mere tools at our disposal for analysis, or as straightforwardly equivalent to signs to be deciphered, the anthropologists and philosophers in this volume turn instead to the ways concepts are already intrinsically embedded in our forms of life and how they constitute the very substrate of our existence as humans who lead lives in language. Attending to our ordinary lives with concepts requires not an ascent from the rough ground of reality into the skies of theory, but rather acceptance of the fact that thinking is congenital to living with and through concepts. The volume offers a critical and timely intervention into both contemporary philosophy and anthropological theory by unsettling the distinction between thought and reality that continues to be too often assumed and showing how the supposed need to grasp reality may be replaced by an acknowledgement that we are in its grip.

Who was he? Did he really have ten heads? Was he the jealous, lustful and selfish one as history says? Is Ravana really an evil demon as he is being portrayed? Was Ravana a loser, just because he didn’t win the war? Was it an ethical war? Why was he murdered? Was it fair dragging Mandodari naked and molesting her in front of the whole army? Who was to blame, Rama or Ravana? Or was it her karma? Who decides karma? Is it always right? It is only Mandodari, who can explain… Enough! The questions of a thousand years will be answered now.

Book Short Summary:

Have you ever deeply wondered what's holding you back from living your purposefully purposeful life? Maybe it is the residual effects from adverse childhood experiences. Perhaps it is an unhealed wound, a deeply-seeded insecurity, a painful divorce, or an untimely death of a loved one. All of these things have somehow, and in some way, taken the lead, even if for one moment, over areas in your life that consequently create barriers to your purpose. In the Leadership Core, Glynis practically outlines five core leadership lessons in Purpose, Process, Pain, Prescription, and People to help remove the barriers to destiny. In the world of physical fitness, the body’s core is very important. It is the working together of the pelvis, lower back, hips, and abdomen to add balance, strength, and stability to the rest of the body’s muscles. Likewise, these core leadership lessons are designed to support and strengthen the core of your leadership ability as you navigate life fulfilling your God-given purpose.

Book Short Summary:

The Virgin Mary has been idealized as a self-sacrificing mother throughout Christian history, but she is not the only ancient maternal figure whose story is connected to violent loss. This book examines several ancient representations of mothers and children in contexts of sociopolitical violence, demonstrating that notions of early Christian motherhood, as today, are contextual and produced for various political, social, and ethical reasons. In each chapter, the ancient maternal figure is juxtaposed with an example of contemporary maternal activism to show that maternal self-sacrifice can be understood as strategic, varied, politically charged, and rhetorically flexible.

Book Short Summary:

Argues for a postrationalist conception of translation based not on the translator's rational control of words and meanings but on a flowing through the translator of voices and textualities. Translators have long claimed that their job is to “step aside and let the source author speak through them.” In Who Translates? Douglas Robinson uses this adage to set up a series of “postrationalist” perspectives on translation, all based on the recognition that translation has always been thought of in terms of the translator’s surrender to forces beyond his or her rational control. Exploring this theme, Robinson examines Plato’s Ion, Philo Judaeus and Augustine on the Septuagint, Paul on inspired interpreters, Joseph Smith on the Book of Mormon, and Schleiermacher, Marx, and Heidegger on translation. He traces the imaginative and historical linkages between twentieth-century conceptions of ideology and ancient conceptions of spirit-channeling, and the performative inversion of power relations by which the “channel” (or translator) comes to wield the source author as his or her tool. And he argues throughout for a postrationalist conception of translation based not on the translator’s rational control of words and meanings but rather on a flowing through the translator of voices and textualities. Douglas Robinson is Professor of English at the University of Mississippi and has written numerous books on translation and culture, including The Translator’s Turn, Translation and Taboo, and Becoming a Translator: An Accelerated Course.

Book Short Summary:

Evolutionary medicine has been steadily gaining recognition, not only in modern clinical research and practice, but also in bioarchaeology (the study of archaeological human remains) and especially its sub-discipline, palaeopathology. To date, however, palaeopathology has not been necessarily recognised as particularly useful to the field and most key texts in evolutionary medicine have tended to overlook it. This novel text is the first to highlight the benefits of using palaeopathological research to answer questions about the evolution of disease and its application to current health problems, as well as the benefits of using evolutionary thinking in medicine to help interpret historical disease processes. It presents hypothesis-driven research by experts in biological anthropology (including palaeopathology), medicine, health sciences, and evolutionary medicine through a series of unique case studies that address specific research questions. Each chapter has been co-authored by two or more researchers with different disciplinary perspectives in order to provide original, insightful, and interdisciplinary contributions that will provide new insights for both palaeopathology and evolutionary medicine. Palaeopathology and Evolutionary Medicine is intended for graduate level students and professional researchers in a wide range of fields including the humanities (history), social sciences (anthropology, archaeology, palaeopathology, geography), and life sciences (medicine and biology). Relevant courses include evolutionary medicine, evolutionary anthropology, medical anthropology, and palaeopathology.

In a non-fiction portrayal of the search for her fathers love, Dr. Anntwanique Edwards candidly expresses how her quest could not be satisfied by man. She openly describes her disappointment with her biological and heavenly fathers for not attending to her needs. Her Life experiences are divulged to reveal the purpose of pain. This phenomenal speaker puts her words on a paper to establish Gods ability to release women from the catastrophic danger of dancing with versions of love created by this world. Hear her words, declare the affirmations she shares at the end of each chapter, and experience freedom as never before.

Book Short Summary:

Journey to 31 is about a journey of faith. It’s about having trust in God and believing him for all his promises, not only for your life but for other people’s lives as well. Journey to 31 tells the truth about the obstacles the author has faced on her faith journey. It also shares her understanding that there is a greater purpose for it all. Obstacles, trials, and tribulations became beautiful manifestations of God’s word. Know that the Lord Adonai’s word is his bond and that it does not return void. Understand that what you’re growing through will cause you to bloom for the world to see. When you speak for the Lord, it shows the world that you have withstood the test of time and that you never gave up. There is light in the darkness. If you focus on the light, you will emerge from your lion’s den and out of the miry clay and your pit. You will come out of the fire, clean and without burns. You will be scratch free, full of light, and in your right mind. Then your task is to assist Adonai. Stand in agreement and deliver someone else out of a pit, a lion’s den, the miry clay, and the fire!

Book Short Summary:

Jesus' particular Jewish existence (his human nature) and his universal transcendence (his divine nature) are brought together here in the construction of a Christology that proposes the equality, unity, and full participation of both natures. Using frameworks from multicultural theory, it identifies the processes by which Christologies have historically negotiated difference in the Incarnation, and explains why uniting the two natures of Christ consistently and problematically supplants Jesus' Jewishness. This conceptual framework unites the two natures without sublimating their differences, by proposing a contextual universalism. 'Overlapping membership' offers the means whereby the particular, Jewish, human nature and the universal, divine nature of Jesus Christ engage in an ongoing dialogue and formation in the one person of the Incarnation. This work offers a new way of understanding the two natures of Christ that brings together historical understandings with contemporary contextual Christologies, enabling us to find a way to understand Christ as both truly human and fully divine.

Book Short Summary:

In a world waking from a dark age, a young musician finds himself thousands of miles from home, covered in bruises, and falling in love. And it’s only downhill from there. Chronically clueless and incurably naïve, runaway street performer Osha Oloreben has known his share of hard knocks – but none like those he’s dealt in the city of Valena. Dragged into war and battered by disease, Osha unwittingly trades his life for a fever dream of half-truths and hidden realms. Helped and hindered by a cast of mystics, rebels, and ghosts, he struggles to reclaim his body, his identity, and reality itself – before it’s too late. With humor and horror in equal measure, ‘Farewell, Everything’ delves into the dissolution of a transforming mind. Climate fallout, cultural amnesia, and the enduring legacy of past mistakes set a bleak yet whimsical stage on which healing and self-discovery take on mythic proportions. Stumbling through the stages of grief – denial, anger, bargaining, depression, and acceptance – our unlikely hero braves the surreal landscapes of love, loss, and death, from which no one emerges unchanged.
