On the Structure of Complex Networks By Daniel Grady
Hardcover: $47.65
Prints in 3-5 business days
Large-scale complex networks in natural, social, and technological systems exhibit an abundance of rich information, and extracting meaningful structural features from network data is one of the most... More > challenging tasks in network theory. Nonetheless, understanding these networks is essential to explaining phenomena in transportation, epidemiology, sociology, economics, and other fields. This book presents three novel analyses of large-scale empirical networks. First, a comparison of two world-wide transportation systems reveals many statistical similarities despite extremely different operational and geographic constraints. Second, we develop a new method for determining geographic borders based on human mobility. Finally, we demonstrate how measuring networks in terms of shortest-path trees can identify a robust network skeleton, and its relevance in predicting dynamical processes.< Less

We often refer to ethical judgments, or ethical principles where it once would have been more common to speak of moral judgments or moral principles.

MORAL PHILOSOPHY: The terms ethics and morality are closely related. We now often refer to ethical judgments or ethical principles where it once would have been more common to speak of moral... More > judgments or moral principles. These applications are an extension of the meaning of ethics. Strictly speaking, however, the term refers not to morality itself but to the field of study, or branch of inquiry, that has morality as its subject matter. In this sense, ethics is equivalent to moral philosophy. Although ethics has always been viewed as a branch of philosophy, its all-embracing practical nature links it with many other areas of study, including anthropology, biology, medicine, economics, history, politics, psychology, sociology, and theology. Yet, ethics remain distinct from such disciplines because it is not a matter of factual knowledge in the way that the sciences and other branches of inquiry are...< Less

More > Holland), with scholarly reviews of alternative theories.

Let there be Peace - Ascension to Ivisimara By Mark O'Doherty

Prints in 3-5 business days
Is global peace a utopian daydream, or actually a logical evolutionary step for the global community? This may well be the most pressing question in the Information Age for humanity to answer, which... More > this book attempts to do. The concept of ‘Ivisimara’ itself – with its metaphysical and social-psychological implications – is a manifestation of the author’s visionary strength for a realistic and harmonious global peace policy. The scientific and intuitive approaches relating to development aid policy and global peace policy are unconventional and ambitious, but also innovative and pioneering. A synthesis of utopian concepts of how to break “the Curse of Eden” – with the aim of manifesting paradise on earth again – emphasizes the author's gender-mainstreaming and gender-synergizing focus. In addition this book provides cutting edge research into the fields of social work, metaphysics, social psychology and urban sociology.< Less
A Critique of Science By Orogee Dolsenhe
eBook (PDF): $9.95
Science has been without any critique seen in movie or music. Consequently, its flaws, errors, and blind spots are neither corrected nor even recognized. The problem is that people in general are... More > intimidated by the mystique of science. Removing this aura will reveal that science has developed a sophisticated system that allows its practitioners to justify their intolerance and discriminatory practices against metaphysics. Historical, sociological, and psychological analysis offer an explanation how scientists developed the maladaptive culture that is unjust and counterproductive. One of the recurring themes is the human propensity to follow dysfunctional and incoherent leaders. The crux of my argument is that human impulses play a powerful role in hijacking minds so that we can be led to embrace viewppoints that are dysfunctional and incoherent. This essay examines the self-exemted examiner to show that the way science attained and maintained its anti-metaphysical view is unfair and untrustworthy.< Less
