When did the intimate dialogue between Africa, Europe, and the Americas begin? Looking back, it seems as if these three continents have always been each other s significant others. Europe created its own modern identity by using Africa as a mirror, but Africans traveled to Europe and America long before the European age of discovery, and African cultures can be said to lie at the root of European culture. This intertwining has become ever more visible: Nowadays Africa emerges as a highly visible presence in the Americas, and African American styles capture Europe s youth, many of whom are of (North-) African descent. This entanglement, however, remains both productive and destructive. The continental economies are intertwined in ways disastrous for Africa, and African knowledge is all too often exported and translated for US and European scholarly aims, which increases the intercontinental knowledge gap. This volume proposes a fresh look at the vigorous and painful, but inescapable, relationships between these significant others. It does so as a gesture of gratitude and respect to one of the pioneering figures in this field. Dutch Africanist and literary scholar Mineke Schipper, who is taking her leave from her chair in Intercultural Literary Studies at the University of Leiden. Where have the past four decades of African studies brought us? What is the present-day state of this intercontinental dialogue? Sixteen of Mineke s colleagues and friends in Europe, Africa and the Americas look back and assess the relations and debates between Africa-Europe-America: Ann Adams, Ernst van Alphen, Mieke Bal, Liesbeth Bekers, Wilfried van Damme, Ariel Dorfman, Peter Geschiere, Kathleen Gyssels, Isabel Hoving, Frans-Willem Korsten, Babacar M Baye, Harry Olufunwa, Ankie Peypers, Steven Shankman, Miriam Tlali, and Chantal Zabus write about the place of Africa in today s African Diaspora, about what sisterhood between African and European women really means, about the drawbacks of an overly strong focus on culture in debates about Africa, about Europe s reluctance to see Africa as other than its mirror or its playing field, about the images of Africans in seventeenth-century Dutch writing, about genital excision, the flaunting of the African female body and the new self-writing, about new ways to look at classic African novels, and about the invigorating, disturbing, political art of intercultural reading."

How does perceptual experience make us knowledgeable? This book argues that the answer lies in the nature of perceptual experience: this experience involves conceptual capacities and is a relation between perceiver and world. The author develops her position via a critical examination of conceptualist and relationist theories of perception. A discussion of recent work in vision science rounds up this contribution to the philosophy of perception.

This text will provide the reader with a comprehensive overview of the issues that affect people with significant disabilities from a historical, policy, leadership, and systems perspective. The text will be particularly useful in either graduate or advanced undergraduate courses for prospective rehabilitation counselors, teachers, community mental health professionals, social workers, psychologists, case managers, or allied health professionals. A major goal of the text is to transmit the ideal of living, working, and playing in the community - an ideal that has often been denied to persons who have significant disabilities. Part One of the text, 'Historical, Philosophical, and Public Policy Perspectives,' issues relating to community living—education, employment, housing, transportation, health care, and leisure - are explored from a historical perspective that begins with the identification of issues affecting persons with significant disabilities that have impeded independence, productivity, and inclusion within the larger community. Next, an overview is provided on the various social contexts and connections between social and economic forces - urbanization, industrialization, and immigration - that fostered the development of institutions as a means of dealing with the poor, deviant, and those with disabilities. The history of institutionalization is chronicled, as well as the key legal and constitutional challenges to segregation and exclusion of persons with disabilities. In Part Two, 'Portraits of Leadership,' the perspectives of persons with significant disabilities, parents, and siblings focus on the issues of everyday life from the vantage point of life roles. Topics, ranging from funding, inclusion, IEPs, related services, assistive technology, employment, stigma, spirituality, advocacy, case management, medication policies, education and training for human service professionals, and adaptation among others, are presented in a passionate, personal, insightful, and meaningful manner. The final part of the text concludes with an assessment and analysis of current policies, and advocates that our educational and human service systems develop an infrastructure or foundation which allows for positive change and encourages inclusion. Specific recommendations of the text's contributors complete this section.

TQM, Reengineering, Theory of Constraints, JIT, Six Sigma, Lean Manufacturing . . . These are just some of the methods that, over the past five decades, have promised to transform any manufacturing firm into a lean, mean, moneymaking machine. While each incorporates certain fundamental truths, strengths, and benefits, they are not panaceas. Nor do they necessarily provide much-needed insight into the science that underlies factory performance. James Ignizio, Ph.D., an internationally recognized performance optimization expert, believes that only a balanced approach will provide the significant and sustainable improvement required of firms who will survive and prosper in the twenty-first century. In this breakthrough guide, Dr. Ignizio picks up where such concepts as Six Sigma and Lean Manufacturing leave off to provide you with a holistic, three-dimensional approach to mastering the art and science of manufacturing. Focusing on the three primary enemies of factory performance—complexity, variability, and lackluster leadership—Optimizing Factory Performance cuts to the heart of the problem of less-than-world-class performance and demonstrates how those enemies manifest themselves in companies across manufacturing sectors. Ignizio also explores the insidious effect company politics and flagging commitment to manufacturing performance have on competitiveness. Emphasizing the all-important, often overlooked third dimension of manufacturing—factory protocols—Ignizio describes the types of strategicand tactical changes to physical plant and operating procedures any company can make to achieve performance improvements. In addition, he arms you with powerful, original metrics for measuring and comparing factory performance, as well as a set of interactive simulation models, available online at www.mhprofessional.com/ignizio. Running throughout the book is an often amusing, always instructive account of the fictional high-tech firm, Muddle, Inc., which helps support the concepts discussed in the real world of manufacturing, while reinforcing key lessons learned. Read Optimizing Factory Performance and find out how to transform your organization into the kind of fast, agile manufacturer that delivers the right products to the right customers at the right time— every time.

What makes for a good life, or a beautiful one, or, perhaps most important, a meaningful one? Throughout history most of us have looked to our faith, our relationships, or our deeds for the answer. But in A Significant Life, philosopher Todd May offers an exhilarating new way of thinking about these questions, one deeply attuned to life as it actually is: a work in progress, a journey—and often a narrative. Offering moving accounts of his own life and memories alongside rich engagements with philosophers from Aristotle to Heidegger, he shows us where to find the significance of our lives: in the way we live them. May starts by looking at the fundamental fact that life unfolds over time, and as it does so, it begins to develop certain qualities, certain themes. Our lives can be marked by intensity, curiosity, perseverance, or many other qualities that become guiding narrative values. These values lend meanings to our lives that are distinct from—but also interact with—the universal values we are taught to cultivate, such as goodness or happiness. Offering a fascinating examination of a broad range of figures—from music icon Jimi Hendrix to civil rights leader Fannie Lou Hamer, from cyclist Lance Armstrong to The Portrait of a Lady’s Ralph Touchett to Claus von Stauffenberg, a German officer who tried to assassinate Hitler—May shows that narrative values offer a rich variety of criteria by which to assess a life, specific to each of us and yet widely available. They offer us a way of reading ourselves, who we are, and who we might like to be. Clearly and eloquently written, A Significant Life is a recognition and a comfort, a celebration of the deeply human narrative impulse by which we make—even if we don’t realize it—meaning for ourselves. It offers a refreshing way to think of an age-old question, of quite simply, what makes a life worth living.

Philosopher Todd May s latest book helps readers to find meaning in their lives, especially those readers who, like Camus, do not look to God. As Camus says of daily life, But then one day the why arises and everything begins in that weariness tinged with amazement. To move beyond that weariness tinged with amazement, we must look, May argues, toward a realm of values that inheres in our practices but that we rarely reflect on systematically: narrative values. Narrative values offer thematic meaning and a sense of worth to the trajectory of our lives. The book proceeds in five stages. In the first chapter, May raises the question of meaningfulness, and then rejects the answers he thinks are too easyGod and the universe. The second chapter considers and rejects the possibility that happiness is good enough. For a life to be meaningful in the sense many of us seek, it cannot only feel good to us: it must also meet certain, more objective criteria of meaningfulness. In the third chapter, the heart of the book, May proposes narrative values as offering those criteria or standards of meaning, values such as steadfastness, adventurousness, or gracefulness. In chapter four, May contrasts narrative values with both moral values and aesthetic ones, and in chapter five May defends the idea that we can have standards or criteria of meaning that are objectivenot simply a matter of personal opinioneven in the absence of God or some foundation upon which to rest our beliefs. May reflects on what it is to have a meaningful life, and how much or how little comfort we can take from the meaning our lives might express. Narrative values do not offer us an assurance that our lives have a cosmic significance, and they do not redeem all humankind. Instead, they give us a framework for reflecting on ourselves that allow us to make sense of and give value to the particular bent of the arc of our lives."

The Sinai peninsula--a fabled triangle of land squeezed between Africa and Asia--harbors a rich deposit of cultural history. For many centuries, Sinai has served as a pivotal transit station, a lively route of caravans, armies, missionaries, and pilgrimages, and a military shield for Egypt. Sinai is also known as the crossroads of the world's three major religions: the site of Moses' exodus, it has subsequently been the entry point for Christianity's and Islam's spread into Africa and Asia. Formerly isolated from the Egyptian mainland, Sinai is today poised on the threshold of new era. After regaining Sinai from Israel, Egypt encouraged Sinai's integration with the motherland, emphasizing its potential for tourism. Sinai: The Site and the History accordingly provides a point of reference from which this land can be discovered and rediscovered. The work of a distinguished group of journalists and scholars, with over 60 stunning color photographs, Sinai provides a comprehensive picture of the region: its breathtaking geography, its remarkable secular and religious history, and the culture and customs of its Bedouin peoples.

Tranquillity reigns in the ancient redwood forest until a women-only music festival sets up camp downriver from an all-male retreat for the ruling class. Among those entangled in the ensuing mayhem are a lovesick nurseryman, a panic-stricken philanderer, and the world’s most beautiful fat woman. Significant Others is Armistead Maupin’s cunningly observed meditation on marriage, friendship, and sexual nostalgia.
