  1. Rowan Cahill, October: An Education Journal.
    This 8-page pamphlet/zine is written in the form of a diary for the month of October, 1997, and was published by Bull Ant Press, Bowral (1997). In it the author comments widely on contemporary education issues, in particular the modern trend towards the corporatisation of education, a process he sees as devaluing independent and critical thought in favour of wall-to-wall assessments and examining, utility, bureaucratisation, and education reflecting "corporate and market place ideologies and practices".

  2. E. R. Rasyid & M. J. Gaffikin, A Cultural Analysis of Management Accounting Practices: An Introductory Work.
    As an introductory work of a PhD research project, this paper is about methodological choice.

This paper then introduces Geertz's conception of interpretive culture. It is argued that Geertz' s interpretive cultural thought suggests an alternative perspective for an attempt to understand how management accounting is implicated in its organisational cultural context. Thereafter a research agenda for the research project is (...)

    The period of social change from the 1960s to the 1980s saw a flowering of utopian novels, from Huxley's Island (1962) and Le Guin's The Dispossessed (1964) through to Callenbach's Ecotopia (1975) and Piercy's Woman on the Edge of Time (1976). These works were infused with a vision of an ideal world structured as a decentralised network of small villages or precincts. In each novel, local, participatory decision-making was the key to a utopian "good place" both for people and for (...)

  4. Daniel Hutto, Once Upon a Mind (Narratives and Narrators: A Philosophy of Stories).
    The ability to produce and consume stories is a commonplace yet remarkable human activity. No wonder, then, that thinkers from vastly diverse fields are so interested in our narrative practices. Some argue that storytelling helps us to make sense of our lives and actions, while others claim that narratives are crucial in shaping or creating our identities. yet in all this discussion, the nature and core properties of stories are rarely put under philosophical scrutiny in the way that Gregory Currie (...)
