More > characteristic erudition Epstein brings the reader to the origins of Russian intellectual tradition, showing how it continues to inform some of the most heated debates in modern Russia.

Why Social Science Matters is a new series of essays published by the Centre for Sociology, Anthropology and Politics, which is part of the Higher Education Academy. In this first issue of Why Social... More > Science Matters, six academic authors address this issue in response to a lead article by Professor Ranald Mcdonald. Change has become ubiquitous within Higher Education. Whether it be changes to organisational structures - from departments, to schools, to faculties and back again over a regular cycle; to the curriculum; to the latest approaches to learning, teaching and assessment; to initiatives from Funding Councils or the Government; we do not seem to be able to avoid the experience of change or initiative overload. However, change need not be a bad thing, though we may not necessarily agree on what ‘for the better’ means.< Less

More > educational matter it is of concern to colleagues within the higher education sector at large, but it is also very much a sociological concern that touches upon issues of social inclusion, identity formation, (de)personalisation and pedagogy, and globalisation and internationalisation. What follows therefore, is very much a ‘thought-piece’ and personal view that stems from my immersion in Scottish higher education. I should also wish at this point to acknowledge the support of C-SAP in producing this work as well as the Quality Assurance Agency (Scotland) with whom I have been conducting work on the First Year. What follows is an amalgam of ideas and themes that I have addressed over the past year in various other guises and writings.< Less

Nonkilling is an approach that affirms the possibility of a society where killing, threats to kill, and conditions conducive to killing are absent. This perspective offers a distinct approach,... More > characterized by the measurability of its goals and the open-ended nature of its realization. The open challenge to the widespread acceptance of lethality and lethal intent trespasses the limits of an ideology for social change entailing a new scientific model based on the refutation of killing-accepting science. This volume brings together 24 authors and 14 disciplines (Anthropology, Arts, Biology, Economics, Engineering, Geography, Health Sciences, History, Linguistics, Mathematics, Philosophy, Physics, Psychology and Sociology) to seriously consider the prospects for the realization of nonkilling societies and to challenge each discipline’s role in the necessary social and scientific transformation.< Less

Ageing is a process of physical, psychological and social change in multi-dimensional aspects. "Elderly" was once defined as being age 65 or above, but the growing number of active and... More > healthy older people has caused that definition to expand to "young old" (65 to 75), "old old" (75 to 85), and "oldest old" (85 and beyond). The over-85 age group is the one that is growing most rapidly. The term Geriatrics is made by union of two Greek words, first geras (old age) + iatrike (medical treatment); thus the study of all aspects of aging, including physiological, pathological, psychological, economical and sociological problems is termed as geriatrics, their synonym is gerontology. While term aging means growing old or maturing, and these are the progressive changes in human body and mind related to passage of time. There is no any precise method for determining the rate or degree of aging. Aging is an inevitable physiological process, why senile changes - occur in the body-mind system, is not yet clear.< Less

More > excerpts, reviews and interviews, the book produced some debate outside of Italy, which persuaded the author to release, three years later, this English translation. “Beyond New Media Art” is an attempt to analyze the current positioning of so-called New Media Art in the wider field of contemporary arts, and to explore the historical, sociological and conceptual reasons for its marginal position and under-recognition in recent art history.
