The Future of Post-Human Meta-Data: Towards a New Theory of Structure and Process in Information Science By Peter Baofu Ph.D.
Paperback: $51.79
Prints in 3-5 business days
Is meta-data (to give data a structure and a process) really so useful? This book offers an alternative (better) way to understand the future of meta-data in regard to the dialectic relationship... More > between structure and process—while learning from different approaches in the literature but without favoring any one of them (nor integrating them, since they are not necessarily compatible with each other). More specifically, this book offers a new theory (that is, the circumstantial theory of meta-data) to go beyond the existing approaches in a novel way, and is organized in four chapters. This seminal project here will fundamentally change the way that we think about structure and process (especially, though not solely, in the context of meta-data), together with other debates as will be discussed in the rest of the book, from the combined perspectives of the mind, nature, society, and culture, with enormous implications for the human future and what I originally called its “post-human” fate.< Less

Principles of Philosophy of Education By Daniel Deleanu
Paperback: $12.99
Prints in 3-5 business days
The aim of this book is to demonstrate within a Kantian system of reference that the field of education is not originally a realm of pedagogical and andragogical rules and regulations, but rather a... More > realm of various philosophical principles; that fundamentally all dimensions of cognition have the structure of philosophical inquiry; and that it is therefore possible to conceive education as a contrapuntal meditation not only on the real, but also on the imaginary. In order to carry out this aim, five different philosophical disciplines have been kept in mind: epistemology, logic, ontology, teleology, and ethics. What unites these is the phenomenology employed by the author, who always speaks out of, and towards, experience. Therefore, this is not just a book about philosophy of education, but also a book on meta-philosophy of education, that is, a philosophical text on philosophy of education and, last but not least, a philosophical guide to educational experience – to the experience of learning itself.< Less

More > foreign language teaching as early as elementary school. The research hypothesis of this quantitative causal-comparative study was therefore that multilingual students should achieve significantly higher scores in standardized tests of basic skills relative to monolingual students. Simple random samples of 500 monolingual and 500 multilingual students in grades 5 through 8 with similar socio-economic status were drawn. There was a significant difference between the combined scores of the monolingual and multilingual students, indicating higher multilingual scores. The results of this and other studies should influence educational policy on language teaching. Urgent action is demanded from educational administrators and curriculum specialists to make foreign language teaching an integral part of the curriculum.< Less
