This is a general introduction to grammaticalization, the change whereby lexical terms and constructions come in certain linguistic contexts to serve grammatical functions, and, once grammaticalized, continue to develop new grammatical functions. The authors synthesize work from several areas of linguistics, including historical linguistics, discourse analysis, and pragmatics. Data are drawn from many languages including Ewe, Finnish, French, Hindi, Hittite, Japanese, Malay, and especially English. This second edition has been thoroughly revised with substantial updates on theoretical and methodological issues that have arisen in the decade since the first edition, and includes a significantly expanded bibliography. Particular attention is paid to recent debates over directionality in change and the role of grammaticalization in creolization. Grammaticalization will be a valuable and stimulating textbook for all linguists interested in the development of grammatical forms and will also be of interest to readers in anthropology and psychology.

From the flat earth to the sun`s chariot traditional spiritual texts seem wedded to outmoded cosmologies that show, at best, the scientific limitations of their authors. The Bhagavata Purana, one of the classical scriptures of Hinduism, seems, at first glance, to be no exception. However, a closer examination of this text reveals unexpected depths of knowledge in ancient cosmology. This shows that the cosmology of the Bhagavata Purana is a sophisticated system, with multiple levels of meaning that encode at least four different astronomical, geographical, and spiritual world models. By viewing the text in the light of modern astronomy, Richard Thompson shows how ancient scientists expressed exact knowledge in apparently mythological terms. Comparison with the ancient traditions of Egypt and the Near East shows early cultural connections between India and these regions including a surprisingly advanced science. However, quantitative science is only part of the picture. This work also offers a clear understanding of how the spiritual dimension was integrated into ancient Indian cosmology.

A leading scholar, cultural historian, and Catholic priest who spent more than fifty years writing about our engagement with the Earth, Thomas Berry possessed prophetic insight into the rampant destruction of ecosystems and the extinction of species. In this book he makes a persuasive case for an interreligious dialogue that can better confront the environmental problems of the twenty-first century. These erudite and keenly sympathetic essays represent Berry's best work, covering such issues as human beings' modern alienation from nature and the possibilities of future, regenerative forms of religious experience. Asking that we create a new story of the universe and the emergence of the Earth within it, Berry resituates the human spirit within a sacred totality.

In his latest book, former senior computer systems designer and bestselling author Gregg Braden merges these ancient and modern world views into a powerful new model of time. Marrying the modern laws of fractal patterns to the ancient concept of cycles, he demonstrates how everything from the war and peace between nations to our most joyous relationships and personal crises are the returning patterns of our past. As each pattern returns, it carries the same conditions of previous cycles—fractal patterns that can be known, measured and predicted! What makes this model so important today is that the returning cycles also carry a window of opportunity—a choice point—that allows us to choose a new outcome for the cycle. Braden suggests that if we can see time from this perspective, the patterns will show us what’s in store for the future, and perhaps how to avoid the mistakes of our past. After presenting the case histories that confirm the accuracy of fractal time calculations, the author crosses the traditional boundaries of science and spirituality to answer the question that must be asked: What does fractal time tell us about 2012, and beyond? Because the cycles repeat, the seed for 2012 has already happened and the pattern already exists! In a narrative format of easy-to-read science and true-life accounts, Fractal Time shows us what we can expect as we close the Great World Age described by the Mayan Calendar, and the secret to our moment in history.

This introduction to the North American Indian will have special appeal for readers interested in anthropology, Native American studies, sociology of minorities and American history. The book covers the full range of Native American development, from the first arrival of the Indian on this continent to modern reservation policy issues. It is very readable, answering many of the questions most frequently asked by readers interested in this subject. It answers, for example, questions about popular alternative theories concerning Indian origins, while prompting readers to examine truly significant questions in history and anthropology. The first chapters use both archaeological data and ethnographic analogy to cover the ecological and economic issues of pre-Columbian development. Questions of pre-Columbian belief systems and difficult issues of social organization and kinship systems are extensively covered in the first half of the book. The second half of the book deals with the contact and conflict between Native American and Western cultures, the development of the reservation system, and current through on modern programs and policies. Sympathetic but objective, this is a compelling, authoritative book that readers will enjoy. It offers a thorough understanding of Indian culture and history based on a solid background of anthropological information. -- from dust jacket.

It offers readers kabbalistic tips for overcoming shame and lack of self-respect, as well as a way for accessing higher levels of connection to ourselves, to our partners, and to spirit. Through the ancient wisdom revealed here, the floodgates of passion and desire will open wide. Your sex will become the truly sacred connection it was always meant to be.

Every Saturday for a number of years, Christopher Howse has written in The Daily Telegraph a column under the title Sacred Mysteries. This replaced the old Meditation column written by Edward Norman. Howse's articles are invariably sparked off by some current event but his ruminations are always profound, wise, quirky and well informed. His column demonstrates the very best in religious writing in the sense that his thoughts are spiritual; but also communicate to people who never darken the doors of a church. Christopher Howse's weekly dose of spiritual wisdom has been deeply appreciated by countless readers of The Daily Telegraph. This book is published at their insistence.
