We all know the opposite sex can be a baffling, even infuriating, species. Why do most men use the phone to exchange information rather than have a chat? Why do women love talking about relationships and feelings with their girlfriends while men seem drawn to computer games, new gadgets, or the latest sports scores? Does it really all just come down to our upbringing? In The Essential Difference, leading psychologist Simon Baron-Cohen confirms what most of us had suspected all along: that male and female brains are different. This groundbreaking and controversial study reveals the scientific evidence (present even in one-day-old babies) that proves that female-type brains are better at empathizing and communicating, while male brains are stronger at understanding and building systems-not just computers and machinery, but abstract systems such as politics and music. Most revolutionary of all, The Essential Difference also puts forward the compelling new theory that autism (and its close relative, Asperger's Syndrome) is actually an example of the extreme male brain. His theory can explain why those who live with this condition are brilliant at analyzing the most complex systems yet cannot relate to the emotional lives of those with whom they live. Understanding our essential difference, Baron-Cohen concludes, may help us not only make sense of our partners' foibles, but also solve one of the most mysterious scientific riddles of our time.

What is essentialism? What is anti-essentialism? The Essential Difference attempts to answer questions at the heart of current feminist theory and cultural study. The book deals with origins and contexts of the debate; relationships between essentialism, anti-essentialism, and the power of language; reasons for the demonization of essentialism within the academy; the relationship between essentialism and Third World studies. The essays also speculate about whether there can be an anti-essentialist feminism, whether there can in fact be a feminist politics that dispenses with the notion of Woman. This long-awaited volume questions the bases of feminism itself. The contributors are Teresa de Lauretis, Diana Fuss, Elizabeth Grosz, Luce Irigaray, Leslie Wahl Rabine, Ellen Rooney, Robert Scholes, Naomi Schor, and Gayatri Chakravorty Spivak.

Baby-led Weaning ist DER neue Baby-Ernährungstrend aus Großbritannien. Dabei bekommen Kinder ab dem Beikostalter feste Nahrung angeboten, die sie selbstständig essen können. Baby-led Weaning (auf Deutsch: »babygeleitete Beikosteinführung«), kurz BLW, räumt auf mit dem Mythos, dass Babys mit Brei vom Löffelchen gefüttert werden müssen, und zeigt, warum das eigenständige Essen von Beginn an der gesündeste Weg für Kinder ist. Baby-led Weaning - unterstützt das Kind in seinen Entwicklungsschritten, - ermöglicht, dass es von Anfang an am Familienessen teilnimmt, - fördert Babys Eigenständigkeit, - macht Schluss mit den gewohnten »Brei-Fütter-Schlachten«, - hilft ihnen, ernährungsbewusste Erwachsene zu werden. Das Grundlagenbuch von Gill Rapley und Tracey Murkett wird von Eltern schon sehnsüchtig auf Deutsch erwartet. Zahlreiche Foreneinträge verdeutlichen dies. »Das Buch gibt es leider noch nicht auf Deutsch. Ich versteh auch nicht warum.« (kiki2012 im Eltern-Forum zum Thema Beikost) »Wir haben das mit unserer Kleinen auch gemacht. Es funktioniert soooo gut! Und es ist für beide Seiten so viel schöner. Sie isst mit so viel Genuss und das von Anfang an. Wenn ich da an das Breifüttern mit unseren Großen denke - kein Vergleich.« (ein Gast-User im Forum von www.eltern.de zum Thema Beikost) Brei war gestern – die neue Beikost Babys anders ernähren Das Grundlagenwerk endlich auf Deutsch

"In his monograph, Benjamin Daise finds support for Kierkegaard's claim that he was a midwife for Christendom. The idea of midwifery is developed by means of an analysis of portions of Plato's Meno." "Daise's analysis directly confronts interpretations of Kierkegaard/Climacus that see Climacus as presenting traditional responses to traditional theological or metaphysical questions. Where does Daise's analysis and critique lead? To the conclusion that the concern of Kierkegaard/Climacus was not just primarily existential but wholly existential. And to a new awareness of Kierkegaard's skillful - and ethical - use of "indirect communication," much like a good midwife and very much in the way of the "Socratic/maieutic art.""--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

In the landmark 1991 edition of Feminisms, Robyn Warhol and Diane Price Herndl assembled the most comprehensive collection of American and British feminist literary criticism ever published. In this revised edition, the editors have updated the volume, in keeping with the expanding parameters of feminist literary discourse. With the inclusion of more than two dozen new essays, along with a major reorganization of the sections in which they appear, Warhol and Price Herndl have again established the measure for representing the latest developments in the field of feminist literary theory. Believing that the feminist movement can only move forward "where difference commands attention, not dismissal or negativism," they have continued the original collection's mission of providing a multiplicity of perspectives and approaches. This revised edition contains three new sections ("Conflict," "Gaze," and "Practice") and includes more selections by and about women of color and lesbians.

Both advanced students and scholars will find extensive range and depth in the topics covered across the Handbook's 29 chapters. Published as a single volume, the handbook is aimed at individuals as well as the library market.

Proposes a new way of understanding the nature of metaphysics, focusing on nonreductionist emergence theory, both in ancient and modern philosophy, as well as in contemporary philosophy of science. Is metaphysics possible? This book argues that the greatest threat to its viability derives from a self-destructive formalism. If what is essential to the nature of physical entities are the properties they have in common (as formalism holds), the inevitable result will be a reductionist collapse—leaving only “being” or physical “matter” or some other underlying ground. In Essential Difference, James Blachowicz first constructs a one-to-one historical parallel between the modern crisis surrounding formalism (Hume/Kant/Hegel) and the ancient version (Parmenides/Plato/Aristotle), focusing on the principles of differentiation and individuation that underlie Aristotle’s and Hegel’s antireductionist programs. He then proposes a contemporary metaphysical theory of emergence in the context of recent philosophy of science. This theory, founded on the principle of the nonderivability of actual states from possible states, holds that the differences among physical, biological, and mental phenomena are essential to any metaphysics.Essential Difference is the only focused treatment of this problem and is itself essential for any understanding of the nature of metaphysics.

A classic of early modernism, Capital combines vivid historical detail with economic analysis to produce a bitter denunciation of mid-Victorian capitalist society. It has also proved to be the most influential work in social science in the twentieth century; Marx did for social science what Darwin had done for biology. Millions of readers this century have treated Capital as a sacred text, subjecting it to as many different interpretations as the Bible itself. No mere work of dry economics, Marx's great work depicts the unfolding of industrial capitalism as a tragic drama - with a message which has lost none of its relevance today. This is the only abridged edition to take account of the whole of Capital. It offers virtually all of Volume 1, which Marx himself published in 1867, excerpts from a new translation of 'The Result of the Immediate Process of Production', and a selection of key chapters from Volume 3, which Engels published in 1895.
