From Natura to Nature: How Love, Imagination, and Integrity Formed the Modern World

Author: 

Hipolito, T. A.

Credentials: 

T. A. (Terry) Hipolito has a background in medieval literature, having received his Ph.D. in that subject from the University of California Los Angeles, and a career in software development and artificial intelligence. His amateur endeavors have included history and philosophy. He has attempted to unify all of these disciplines in a study of Rudolf Steiner’s anthroposophy, which he believes endeavors to do much the same.

From Natura to Nature traces the career of the medieval goddess Natura – Mother Nature – as she influenced the literature of the High Middle Ages up to the time of William Shakespeare and Edmund Spenser. After that, Natura’s medieval aspect morphed into the mathematics of the early modern era. The book’s subtitle includes the terms Love, Integrity, and Imagination, subjects that complement Natura’s well-known sponsorship of the phenomenon of romantic love.

How Rampage Killers Interpret Their World

Author: 

Funk, S. Lee

Credentials: 

S. Lee Funk is founder and lead consultant for Resources for Advancing Inquiry and Supporting Ethics (RAISE). With over thirty-five years as an educator in California, Dr. Funk brings wide-ranging experiences and extensive academic credentials to his analyses of the motives and psychological forces that shape the profile of a rampage murderer. For much of his career, Dr. Funk worked with young people with emotional disturbances, behavioral disorders, and anti-social inclinations. As the phenomenon of mass killings grew, he was able to combine perceptions based on daily interactions with his knowledge of cognitive theory and affective development to glean insights into the personal characteristics of perpetrators committing lethal acts that are not as random as many suppose. Dr. Funk received his doctorate from the University of San Francisco, where he was cited as “Doctoral Student of the Year” for a dissertation that combined scholarship with practical solutions for reducing student attrition. Dr. Funk has presented widely on issues related to classroom instruction, alternative schools, and behavior. While serving as a school superintendent, he was honored as “Administrator of the Year and as a “Star Administrator.” He remains an active member of the American Society for Criminology, the Council for Exceptional Children, the Foundation for Critical Thinking, and Phi Delta Kappa. Dr. Funk resides in Sacramento, California, with his wife of thirteen years. In his free time, he enjoys writing poetry, walking, traveling by train, and spending time with his family.

How Rampage Killers Interpret Their World addresses a question that recently has become disturbingly persistent: “What compels a person or a pair without notice and seemingly without any foreseeable benefit to attack numerous individuals, many of whom are strangers, in a single setting?” It considers that query from the vantage point of psychological circumspection – not as evidence of social fragmentation or historical turbulence.

Until now, the influential agents in rampage killings have been described with unsatisfactory generalizations or chalked up to unconscious impulses. Instead of simply attributing lethal decision-making to distorted thinking, Why Rampage Killers Emerge proffers a conceptual tableau to explain the genesis of the mentality that engages in sudden acts of mass violence.

Nuclear Agendas in Japan and Taiwan: A Comparative Approach to Science, Technology, and Society

Author: 

Amato, Silvia, Ph.D.

Credentials: 

Silvia Amato, Ph.D., is an international author. Her research, currently based on independent study projects, includes doctoral dissertation research centered on international Asia-Pacific Interdisciplinary Studies, and she received her M.A in International Relations in Taiwan. Her main thematic interests focus on comparative development, regionalism, and environmental dynamics intertwined with local planning designs.

Nuclear Agendas in Japan and Taiwan compares practical management cases regarding nuclear energy in regional neighbouring partners: Japan and Taiwan. An introductory overview of Japan’s nuclear policy leads to the specification of important factors tangible in everyday life. What we perceive as knowledge transfer innovation and renewed industrial assessments shift to a regional territory that develops its own rules and practices within the dimension of nuclear energy innovation technology and post-crisis regulatory agendas.

European Hair, Eye, and Skin Color: Solving the Puzzle

Author: 

Frost, Peter

Credentials: 

Peter Frost holds a Ph.D. in Anthropology from Université Laval, in Quebec, Canada.

Europeans, especially those from northern and eastern Europe, are unique in having diverse hair and eye colors and a skin almost as pale as an albino’s. Those colors are not only brighter than the original black and brown but also “purer”—they lie within thin slices of the visible spectrum. Overall, that color scheme is more developed in women, who naturally have a higher incidence of red hair, blonde hair, and green eyes. They also have fairer skin. The distinguishing features of Europeans began as female features.
