- Epistemology and Community-Worker Education : Questioning the Knowledge We Value / Valuing the Knowledge We Question.Morris Beckford - 2018 - Whanake: The Pacific Journal of Community Development 4 (1):34-44.An appreciation and respect of how knowledge is created, classified and perpetuated is integral to community-work praxis. As community workers, ensuring that we have an epistemological foundation that guides our practice in a way that focuses on the systemic challenges and oppressions of those we serve is central to how we engage with communities. What we are taught, formally and informally, is grounded in the epistemic foundations of those who teach us. We in turn use that knowledge in our everyday (...)No categories
- Faculty Beliefs About the Purposes for Teaching Undergraduate Physical Chemistry Courses.Michael Mack & Marcy H. Towns - 2016 - .We report the results of a phenomenographic analysis of faculty beliefs about the purposes for teaching upper-division physical chemistry courses in the undergraduate curriculum.

- Decoherence : Mount Albert Science Center.Alastair Storrie - unknownPhilosophy, Science and Architecture have ever been engaged in serious interdisciplinary discourse. In various and profound ways, each discipline derives insight from the others. The discoveries and insights held between this triumvirate provide today's *developed* world an unprecedented degree of productive and creative potential, comfort and recreational pleasure. But as each discipline necessarily becomes increasingly specialised the ability for discourse becomes imperilled, for the ability to apprehend the internal language of each becomes correspondingly more difficult. The confusion described in the (...)No categories
- Sustainable Leadership: The Fundamental Solution to Lasting Superior Staff Performance.Pieter Nel & Graham Little - 2011 - .The Hawthorne experiments of the 1920s laid the foundation of leadership research, in particular into the question of "how does a leader achieve greatest staff performance?" In the ninety years of extensive effort and vast literature being generated, there is still today no systematic, scientific and causal answer to this question. Major effort was invested in resolving the question by many researchers which suggests that there are underlying issues not yet grasped that erode the effort and reduce the efficacy of (...)
- Intentionalism, Intentionality, and Reporting Beliefs.Branko Mitrović - 2009 - History and Theory 48 (3):180-198.The dominant view of twentieth century analytic philosophy has been that all thinking is always in a language; that languages are vehicles of thought.

The debate has a direct equivalent in the philosophy of history: when historians report the beliefs of historical figures, do they report the sentences or propositions that these historical figures believed to be true or (...)
