- Alec Charles, Out of Time: The Deaths and Resurrections of Doctor Who.Doctor Who is one of television's most enduring and ubiquitously popular series. This study contends that the success of the show lies in its ability, over more than half a century, to develop its core concepts and perspectives: alienation, scientific rationalism and moral idealism. The most extraordinary aspect of this eccentric series rests in its capacity to regenerate its central character and, with him, the generic, dramatic and emotional parameters of the programme. Out of Time explores the ways in which (...)No categories

- Fabrizio M. Ferrari, Agriculture, Floriculture and Botanical Knowledge in a Middle Bengali Text.This chapter offers an overview of botanical lore in Śūnyapurāṇ, a heterogeneous Bengali liturgical work attributed to Rāmāi Paṇḍit.

- Tom McGuirk, Drawing: Embodied and Situated Knowing."An anthology is always the result of many individual efforts and so it is with this volume. This book is however also the result of a collective effort, both in terms of the publication itself and the research on which it is based. A prerequisite for any kind of research is a community of peers who meet in an open forum where ideas are tested, knowledge shared and diversity celebrated. Study Circle 7, from which this research emerges, provided such a (...)No categories
- Elaine L. Graham, The Unquiet Frontier: The Boundaries of Philosophy and Public Theology.Taking Charles Taylor's characterisation of the boundary between 'a secular age' and the new visibility of religion as 'an unquiet frontier', this paper considers further some of the implications of what it means to occupy the liminal space between the Scylla of secularisation and the Charibdis of religious resurgence, often known as the 'post-secular'. Some advocates of the return of religion focus on its philosophical manifestations, whereas a concentration on religious practices offers, potentially, more traction on the benefits and problems (...)No categories
- David Major, The Place and Status of Knowledge in Work Based Learning.This paper seeks to examine some of the epistemological issues which relate to the debate concerning the justification of Work Based Learning in the HE curriculum. It will take account of post-modern perspectives on the theory of knowledge and of the so-called knowledge revolution and the impact these have had on the University. The perceived divide between academic and vocational knowledge, universal and local knowledge, and Mode 1 and Mode 2 knowledge will be discussed, and it will be argued that (...)

How did Berdyaev come to this sense of the priority of spirit? 2. How did he verbalise the reality of spirit in his philosophy? 3. Can he help us to find ways in which we and others might grow in awareness of the spiritual realm? 4. (...)
