- The Many Americas: Civilization and Modernity in the Atlantic World.Jeremy C. A. Smith - 2010 - European Journal of Social Theory 13 (1):117-133.Civilizational analysis has not concerned itself too greatly with the historical experiences of the American New World. There are good reasons to correct this position and Shmuel Eisenstadt’s principal work on America’s distinct modernities goes some way to establishing the colonization of the Atlantic world as an opening phase of modernity. Nonetheless, a more far-reaching analysis of the distinctiveness of diverse American societies can be developed that goes beyond the image of a Protestant North America contrasted with southern Latin cultures.

- Modernity and Civilization in Johann Arnason’s Social Theory of Japan.Jeremy C. A. Smith - 2011 - European Journal of Social Theory 14 (1):41-54.Johann Arnason’s exploration of the historical constellation of East Asia has helped reproblematize the conceptual framework of modernity and civilization. This article outlines Arnason’s innovations in civilizational analysis and social theory in the field of comparative studies of Japan. It sets out the terms on which a nuanced elaboration of Arnason’s framework could occur. Two areas warrant closer attention: state formation and the institution of capitalism. It is argued that there are signs of what might be termed a ‘tertiary’ phase (...)

- Global Encounters in Japanese Social Thought During the Meiji Era.Jeremy Smith - unknownPostwar approaches to Japan’s modern era have functioned within a metanarrative of modernization. Contemporary comparative analysis approaches Japan from the vantage point of civilisational sociology and a paradigm of multiple modernities. The development of sociological thought itself in Japan could also be interpreted through this framework, although there has been little research to date along these lines. This paper explores how Japanese social thought coalesced in global encounters in the 1870s and 1880s. It analyses the radical reinterpretation of classical Western (...)
- Fractured Legitimations.Jane Mummery - unknownModern worldviews must accept the conditions of post-metaphysical thought tothe extent that they recognize that they are competing with other interpretations of the world within the same universe of validity claims. This reflective knowledge concerning the competition between equally warring "gods and demons" creates an awareness of their fallibility and shatters the naiveté of dogmatic modes of belief founded on absolute truth claims (Habermas, 2001: 94).No categories
- States of Exception.Jane Mummery - unknownStates of exception cannot be understood in the terms of any otherwise prevailing rules or discourses. They are, after all, exceptional. They mark, by definition, special cases, anomalies, irregularities. And, because of this special status, we may of course take exception to them. Now this is not a new insight, we can all think of exceptional people for whom the rules just do not seem to apply, and exceptional situations where the normal rules just do not seem able to help.

- Jewgreek Justice and the Ethical Possibilities of the “Post”.Jane Mummery - unknownWith the focus of much of contemporary continental philosophy being the escaping of the conditions and constrictions of an ontotheologic metaphysics (to use an expression favoured by Martin Heidegger), its resultant instantiations have tended to comprise the common project of producing some sort of thinking of a ‘post-’. It is with the possibilities of this ‘post-’—possibilities which I suggest are delineated as ethical (at least by virtue of their shared instigation)—that this paper is concerned. So we have, for instance, picking (...)
- Understanding and Assessing Spiritual Health.John Fisher - unknownThis chapter explores awareness and compassion as essential elements in spiritual cultivation. Of the education of awareness, it describes the ideas of Aldous Huxley and J. Krishnamurthi as well as the Buddha’s teachings on mindfulness. The practice of awareness would reveal a holistic experience and multiple dimensions of reality. This chapter briefly describes the author’s view of “the five dimensions of reality” that include dimensions from the surface to the deepest, infinite reality. Drawing on Eastern perspectives, it explains that “pure (...)
- Framework of Intent for Selecting Research Approaches in Nursing.Sally Wellard & Yaprak Ordin - unknownResearch in nursing is growing rapidly, and there is increased use of qualitative and mixed methods approaches to investigations. However, frequently researchers’ adopt a research approach with little understanding of the philosophical assumptions underpinning their choice. Using a framework of research intent, this paper aims to identify the different philosophical assumptions associated with different research intents and therefore provide a foundation for more informed decision making in selection of methodologies.

- Epistemological Approach to the Process of Practice.Richard Dazeley & Byeongong Kang - unknownSystems based on symbolic knowledge have performed extremely well in processing reason, yet, remain beset with problems of brittleness in many domains. Connectionist approaches do similarly well in emulating interactive domains, however, have struggled when modelling higher brain functions. Neither of these dichotomous approaches, however, have provided many inroads into the area of human reasoning that psychology and sociology refer to as the process of practice. This paper argues that the absence of a model for the process of practise in (...)No categories
