NEW YORK TIMES BEST SELLER INSTANT NATIONAL BEST SELLER!! This May Be the Most Explosive and Amazing Thing You’ve Ever Read Is it possible that there exists an ancient master blueprint that holds the secret behind the events of our times? Could this blueprint lie behind the rise and fall of leaders and governments? Could events that took place nearly 3,000 years ago now be determining the course of our world and with it the course of our lives? Could ancient figures from the Middle East hold the key to the leaders of our own day, what they do, when they rise, and when they fall? Is it possible that this ancient paradigm has determined not only the events of modern times but also their timing—even down to the exact dates?

Is scientific positivism, long the reigning paradigm for research in the social sciences, the `best way' to conduct social research? This is the central question examined in The Paradigm Dialog. Recently three key challenges have appeared - positivism, critical theory and constructivism. All three offer researchers new methodological approaches and all three present fundamental questions that must be addressed. Can research be conducted between paradigms? Are they equally useful in answering questions of applied research? What constitutes good or ethical research in each? These and other significant questions are examined by a multidisciplinary group of leading figures in qualitative research.

Induction is the logical process we use to arrive at general claims, scientific laws, definitions, and predictions. This book offers state-of-the-art essays by experts who argue against the prevailing Humean view of inductive reasoning as an unreliable, enumerative argument. They present alternative accounts in line with an on-going tradition that includes authors such as Socrates, Aristotle, the Scholastics, Goethe, Lonergan, and Rescher.

Does an ancient artifact hold the key to how some of the world s wealthiest families made their fortunes?When a mysterious granite and cypress Egyptian box is found hidden away in a secret room in the palatial Biltmore Estate, twin scientists Alex and Nicholas Shepard work to unlock the secret of its intricate dials, gauges, crystals, and carvings.

But it could also collapse financial markets, bankrupt corporations around the globe, and destroy many of the world s most powerful families. As the twins quickly find out, people will not only kill to make money, but will kill to keep it. What begins as a simple scientific experiment in the stock market quickly descends into a nightmarish intrigue of murder, deception, and mystery. When one Shepard brother is killed, the surviving twin and his wife find themselves in a desperate gambit to learn the truth about the box s legacy.

The Structure of Scientific Revolutions

50th Anniversary Edition

A good book may have the power to change the way we see the world, but a great book actually becomes part of our daily consciousness, pervading our thinking to the point that we take it for granted, and we forget how provocative and challenging its ideas once were—and still are. The Structure of Scientific Revolutions is that kind of book. When it was first published in 1962, it was a landmark event in the history and philosophy of science. Fifty years later, it still has many lessons to teach. With The Structure of Scientific Revolutions, Kuhn challenged long-standing linear notions of scientific progress, arguing that transformative ideas don’t arise from the day-to-day, gradual process of experimentation and data accumulation but that the revolutions in science, those breakthrough moments that disrupt accepted thinking and offer unanticipated ideas, occur outside of “normal science,” as he called it. Though Kuhn was writing when physics ruled the sciences, his ideas on how scientific revolutions bring order to the anomalies that amass over time in research experiments are still instructive in our biotech age. This new edition of Kuhn’s essential work in the history of science includes an insightful introduction by Ian Hacking, which clarifies terms popularized by Kuhn, including paradigm and incommensurability, and applies Kuhn’s ideas to the science of today. Usefully keyed to the separate sections of the book, Hacking’s introduction provides important background information as well as a contemporary context. Newly designed, with an expanded index, this edition will be eagerly welcomed by the next generation of readers seeking to understand the history of our perspectives on science.

Interactive Governance

Advancing the Paradigm

ISBN: 0199596751

Page: 273

Governance has become one of the most commonly used concepts in contemporary political science. It is, however, often used to mean a variety of different things. This book helps to clarify this conceptual muddle by concentrating on one variety of governance-interactive governance. The authors argue that although the state may remain important for many aspects of governing, interactions between state and society represent an important, and perhaps increasingly important, dimension of governance. These interactions may be with social actors such as networks, with market actors or with other governments, but all these forms represent means of governing involving mixtures of state action with the actions of other entities.This book explores thoroughly this meaning of governance, and links it to broader questions of governance. In the process of explicating this dimension of governance the authors also explore some of the more fundamental questions about governance theory. For example, although governance is talked about a great deal political science has done relatively little about how to measure this concept. Likewise, the term multi-level governance has become widely used but its important to understand that idea more fully and see how it functions in the context of interactive forms of governance. The authors also link governance to some very fundamental questions in political science and the social sciences more broadly. How is power exercised in interactive governance? How democratic is interactive governance, and is democratic governance always advanced through transparency?

The Paradigm of Conversion in Luke

Conversion is a main theological theme in the Lukan corpus. Since much attention has been paid to the issue in Acts, the present work shows how the evangelist also conveys his theological emphasis on conversion in his gospel through material either unique to it or that Luke has edited to this purpose. Attention is paid to the different issues involved in Luke's emphasis on conversion and an attempt is made to place them within the larger spectrum of his theology. The grouping of all these elements provides the basis for constructing Luke's paradigm of conversion.

If Harold Frey were to be defined by one word, that word would be artist. Exercising the spiritual gift of creative communication, he has served the church for many years through the dramatic, musical, and literary arts. With a passion for excellence and esthetics, these qualities are a defining aspect of his work. That work includes writing, directing, and performing drama sketches, short plays, and poetry. Harold plays numerous musical instruments, and has served as director of a church drama ministry. Harold is an active elder in his church. This provides opportunity for preaching, teaching, writing, and other pastoral support. He continues to serve through the creative arts. So why does an artist write a theology of biblical paradigms? Harold believes our Creator is the Master Artist. Perhaps an artist is best equipped to discover the beauty, and see that in the scriptures, our God has indeed presented us with an amazing panorama of love. With college studies majoring in theology, a passion for honesty, and his on going quest for truth, Harold has been liberated from personal prisons of belief. Prisoners Of The Paradigm is a testimony to this journey. A journey that continues, with love unfolding as the ultimate ethic. God loves us more than we can comprehend, and he asks us to love each other. This book is unique in its artistic styling. The author's use of creative nuggets, such as The Love Parallel, provides valuable resources for defining truth. Many people go through life held captive by their beliefs. Belief does not create truth. This book springs from the author's firm conviction that truth must create belief. His passion is to help readers open the joy filled windows offreedom, as they choose to let truth define what they believe and practice.
