This is the eBook version of the printed book. If the print book includes a CD-ROM, this content is not included within the eBook version. We tend to be somewhat risk averse as a species. We are systematic and logical, which sometimes makes us overcautious. Sure, look a decision squarely in the face. Consider it from every angle, but also focus on the intangibles that might be harder to place into a systematic equation of risks and returns. After you've done a careful analysis, step back. Maybe the crazy decision is the right one. Don't underestimate the power of deciding boldly. These essential truths help you to learn the brave way to make complex and critical decisions.

This book, by one of Britain's best known and most distinguished writers on Christian ethics, is intended as a resource for undergraduates, theological students, and general readers who are interested in matters of ethics and theodicy. The author's starting-point is that creation, divine or human, involves ethical responsibility. If there is a God who made the universe: God is responsible for what the universe is like. What right had God to create a world like this, full of troubles as well as glories? Is it ethical to worship the Creator? These questions, and the belief that human beings are created for God's good purpose, lead straight to an examination of the problem of evil.

"In recent decades anthropologists have learned to think of themselves as prisoners of text. In the new orthodoxy, ethnography is best viewed as a certain kind of literary genre, textual criticism provides a master theory for understanding all manner of social and cultural phenomena, and young anthropologists show a reluctance to leave the comfort zone of the archive and the library where, whatever else happens, no unruly interlocutor is going to do something unseemly like answering back. This brilliant and humane volume promises to put paid to all that. Anthropology is the product of an encounter with the world we call fieldwork, and fieldwork is an edgy business in which researchers necessarily put themselves at intellectual, political and ethical risk. This volume restores that edgy business to the heart of our concerns, and reminds anthropologists that their distinctive way of engaging the world can be the source of real intellectual excitement, and as worthy of sophisticated theoretical reflection as anything they do."--Jonathan Spencer, University of Edinburgh

"Montgomery's critique, in the form of "essays speculative, reflective, argumentative," seeks to point the way out of intellectual disarray and confusion by affirming the spiritual nature of man, of mind, of the poetic quality of man as "maker" in the course of his intellectual journey. What transpires during this journey, he believes, has a deep and permanent impact on one's view of oneself, of others, of life, and of thought. Above all, he shows, through his sensitive and assiduous commentary, how it is possible to recover from our modernist divisions and separations.

The Applicability of Policy making Theories in Post Mao China

This pioneering work provides a systematic analysis of the applicability of a range of policy-making theories and models in post-Mao China. Its main findings are as follows: 1) Although Marxism is still the fundamental guiding thought of China's policy-making, a greater flexibility has been adopted. 2) The twin approaches of incrementalism and pragmatism are the foundation of China's policy-making mechanism, powerfully promoting its successful operation. 3) The rise of a pluralist tendency significantly influences China's policy process, this includes the increasing involvement of the non-CPC (Communist Party of China) or non-government political and social forces. 4) Political elites continue to dominate China's policy-making process and its central role is much more prominent than in other modern countries. 5) Existing institutions are decisive in shaping China's policy making model, by determining the power structure and the power relations within which the policy making actions take place. The book adopts a method that probes the major development, changes and features of post-Mao China through examining the applicability of selected policy making theories and models to the practice of promoting China's Special Economic Zones (SEZ) since 1978.

Truth depends in some sense on reality. But it is a rather delicate matter to spell this intuition out in a plausible and precise way. According to the theory of truth-making this intuition implies that either every truth or at least every truth of a certain class of truths has a so-called truth-maker, an entity whose existence accounts for truth. This book aims to provide several ways of assessing the correctness of this controversial claim. This book presents a detailed introduction to the theory of truth-making, which outlines truth-maker relations, the ontological category of truth-making entities, and the scope of a truth-maker theory. The essays brought together here represent the most important articles on truth-making in the last three decades as well as new essays by leading researchers in the field of the theory of truth and of truth-making.

Truth in the Making

"Truth in the Making" represents a sophisticated effort to map the complex relations between human knowledge and creative power, as reflected across more than half a millennium of philosophical enquiry. Showing the intimacy of this problematic to the work of Nicholas of Cusa, Bacon, Galileo, Descartes, Hobbes, Leibniz, Vico and David Lachterman, the book reveals how questions about creation apparently diluted by secularism in fact retain much of their potency today. If science could counterfeit or synthesize nature precisely from its smallest nuts and bolts, as Descartes and Hobbes implied and as modern science increasingly suggests, would it create an identical world to that we live in now Robert C. Miner offers a precise genealogy of modern thought on truth and creation: from medieval theology's identification of human creativity with divine initiative to the radical Leibnizian contention that human ideas are 'not little copies of God's', and may at once exceed mimesis and produce things new, unpredictable and unseen. He considers how the theological importance given to creation interacts historically with the secularisation and instrumentalisation of modes of discovery and method, and asks how knowledge is understood between different disciplines, from the allegorical discipline of poetry to the constructible field of mathematics. The book is an eloquent reminder of the ways in which theology continues to fling a wild card at philosophical understandings of reality, countering theories of metaphysical equivalence of the 'real' and 'artificial' with theologies in which human making is always fallible, and strives only for approximate participation in divine truth. As astrenuous and informative breakdown of leading theories of knowledge, "Truth in the Making" shows the continuing influence of theological questions upon philosophical, scientific and aesthetic disciplines, whilst raising topical questions about the ultimate nature of our reality and our freedom to modify and define it.
