eBook (ePub): $2.50
This journal contains the types of Indian traditional puppets and how to make them. India has a rich tradition of puppets with the history of around 5000 years. The journal contains the methods of... More > puppet making using simple household instruments.Ancient Hindu philosophers have paid the greatest tribute to puppeteers. They have likened God Almighty to a puppeteer and the entire universe to a puppet stage. Srimad Bhagavata, the great epic depicting the story of Lord Krishna in his childhood say that with three strings-Satta, Raja and Tama, the God manipulates each object in the universe as a marionette. In Sanskrit terminology, Puttalika and Puttika mean ‘little sons’. The root of Puppet is derived from the Latin word ‘Pupa’ meaning a doll. India is said to be the home of puppets, but it is yet to awaken to its unlimited possibilities. The earliest reference to the art of puppetry is found in Tamil classic ‘Silappadikaaram’ written around the 1st or 2nd century B.C.< Less
Arp, R. (2008). Suárez and Filmer on Freedom. Philosophical Frontiers, 3, 2, 13-39. By Robert Arp
eBook (PDF): $7.74
The point of this paper is to explicate freedom as understood by Francisco Suárez (1548-1617) and Sir Robert Filmer (1588-1653) and to place Suárez and Filmer into dialogue with one... More > another concerning the issues of human freedom and governmental authority. In doing so, I first set the stage by defining five types of freedom as envisioned by Mortimer Adler (1902-2001) in his timeless work, The Idea of Freedom: A Dialectical Examination of the Conceptions of Freedom (1958). Then, I investigate the sections of Suárez’’s De legibus concerning the relationship of the governor to the governed and, using Adler’’s notions of freedom as a model, trace the kinds of freedom espoused therein. Third, I examine Filmer’’s political treatises and explicate the kinds of freedom found in those works. Next, I show that Suárez and Filmer actually agree upon certain issues of paternalism and societal constraint, and that these similarities in their doctrines can be brought out upon examining the notion of freedom. Finally...< Less
Dilworth, J. (2008). Free Action as Two Level Voluntary Control. Philosophical Frontiers, 3, 2, 41-57. By John Dilworth
eBook (PDF): $7.74
The naturalistic voluntary control (VC) theory explains free will and consciousness in terms of each other. It is central to free voluntary control of action that one can control both what one is... More > conscious of, and also what one is not conscious of. Furthermore, the specific cognitive ability or skill involved in voluntarily controlling whether information is processed consciously or unconsciously can itself be used to explain consciousness. In functional terms, it is whatever kind of cognitive processing occurs when a conscious state is voluntarily chosen. This leads to a bivalent view of cognitive processing in which there is voluntary choice either of non-routine (conscious) or routine (unconscious) kinds of processing. On this VC account, consciousness could not exist without its being possible to voluntarily choose a non-routine kind of processing. But what makes voluntary choice itself possible?< Less

The Gray Feather Journal Volume 1 By Tony Hornsby
Paperback: $12.00
Prints in 3-5 business days
The ancient Egyptians believed that, when a person passes from this world to the next, the Goddess Ma’at weighs their heart against the weight of a feather. If the heart was weighed down with... More > troubles caused by actions taken during their lifetime, then the heart might outweigh the feather and their soul would be devoured.
