Rethinking the Curriculum

Author: Orlando Nang Kwok Ho
Publisher: Springer
ISBN: 9789811089022
Release Date: 2018-12-13
Genre: Religion

This book is an inter-disciplinary endeavour. Encompassing education and basic research, it discusses the modular-curriculum embodied in The Epistle from educational, historical, sociolinguistic, anthropological, phenomenological, and non-sectarian perspectives. It shows the cross-boundary philosophical reasoning and pedagogic dimensions of St. Paul as a great teacher and thinker from the Jewish-and-Christian faith. In doing so, this book refocuses academia’s attention on the inevitable antimonic nature inherent in humans’ efforts to create systemic knowledge. Knowledge about the inner aesthetic and volitional-interpretative self – the immanent psychic “I” – and other philosophical aspects of the realm of the transcendental should be rescued from the deepening trends of secularity. Being strong, powerful, productive, and performative should not be taken as the indisputable and exclusive aim of education. Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) do not constitute a sufficient basis for building a better humanity. Education via public curriculums ought to serve both the belly and the mind. Deliberative curricular recalibrations, with rationales for grace, are thus needed for a better future for humanity.... This book is relevant for anyone with a core fascination about truths, values, epistemologies, life, spirituality, and holistic human development. It can also be used as a textbook or a reference in a number of fields including counselling, psychology, translation, cultural studies, and theology.

Obabakoak oder Das G nsespiel

Author: Bernardo Atxaga
Publisher: Unionsverlag
ISBN: 9783293302297
Release Date: 2015-12-20
Genre: Fiction

Obabakoak ist der Roman des Fabulierens, in dem das Fantastische real und das Reale fantastisch wird und alle Geschichten im Grunde vom Geschichtenerzählen handeln. Der fiktive Ort Obaba wird zu einem geradezu mythischen Ort universeller Bedeutung und bleibt doch eine in den baskischen Bergen verlorene Kleinstadt. Mit einem spielerischen Blick, der von Deutschland über Bagdad bis zum Amazonas, von Borges über Calvino bis Queneau reicht, zaubert Atxaga einen skurrilen Kosmos hervor, verfremdet und parodiert, spielt genussvoll mit Worten, Sätzen und Sinnen. Mit Obabakoak hat er der baskischen Sprache ihren Platz in der Weltliteratur erobert.
