The Illusion Of Inclusion

Book by Rodolfo Rosales, The Illusion Of Inclusion Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download The Illusion Of Inclusion books, To many observers, the 1981 election of Henry Cisneros as mayor of San Antonio, Texas, represented the culminating victory in the Chicano community's decades-long struggle for inclusion in the city's political life. Yet, nearly twenty years later, inclusion is still largely an illusion for many working-class and poor Chicanas and Chicanos, since business interests continue to set the city's political and economic priorities. In this book, Rodolfo Rosales offers the first in-depth history of the Chicano community's struggle for inclusion in the political life of San Antonio during the years 1951 to 1991, drawn from interviews with key participants as well as archival research. He focuses on the political and organizational activities of the Chicano middle class in the context of post-World War II municipal reform and how it led ultimately to independent political representation for the Chicano community. Of special interest is his extended discussion of the role of Chicana middle-class women as they gained greater political visibility in the 1980s.

The Illusion Of Psychotherapy

Book by William Epstein, The Illusion Of Psychotherapy Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download The Illusion Of Psychotherapy books, In The Illusion of Psychotherapy William Epstein asserts that psychotherapy is probably ineffective and possibly harmful. He maintains that there is no credible clinical evidence that psychotherapy is effective in handling personal or social problems, or that it is more effective than other modes of treatment. The theories that underpin clinical practice remain speculative and their influence over social policy are more ideological than scientific. A skeptical public and its government would be better served, Epstein says, by credible evidence of outcomes. His analysis focuses on whether psychotherapy is effective against a variety of unwanted behaviors, such as drug addiction and depression. The nation's social problems are due to the inadequacies of its core social institutions: families, communities, education, and jobs. Social problems emerge because many people are brought up in deficient families, live in dangerous communities, lack education and jobs, and have few or no routes out of poverty. Poor people are exposed to unrelenting risks to their physical and mental health. It is possible to remedy most deficiencies through human services that compensate for these failed social institutions. This position is inevitably unpopular in psychotherapeutic circles and in light of current political preferences since it requires massive new resources and extensive redistribution of existing resources. The extent of society's problems reflects the degree to which deficits in basic social institutions have been tolerated. Basic services have been lacking while psychotherapy diverts our impulse to address poverty into ineffective strategies. In a challenging conclusion, Epstein urges society to solve its problems by confronting the reality implied by the failure of psy-chotherapy's minhnal interventions: to acknowledge that more is necessary to resolve social need. This leads to general theoretical concerns about theory as such. The Illusion of Psychotherapy will be compelling reading for psychologists, psychotherapists, social scientists, and policymakers.

Exploring The Illusion Of Free Will

Book by George Ortega, Exploring The Illusion Of Free Will Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Exploring The Illusion Of Free Will books, Note: The author, a cognitive-behavioral psychologist, unabashedly leads the reader through extensive review of the work's major themes and concepts. George Ortega's brilliant and compelling Exploring the Illusion of Free Will is likely to become an historic document. Earlier attempts by a relatively few authors have failed to convince the world that free will is an illusion. However, Ortega's edited transcript of the first 18 episodes of his pioneering Exploring the Illusion of Free Will weekly television series seems likely to succeed. Table of Contents Introduction 2 1. How I Came to See My Causal Will 6 2. Proving Causal Will in Real Time 14 3. Morality Within a Causal Will Perspective 21 4. What it All Means 29 5. We Do Not "Experience" Free Will 37 6. How the Hedonic Imperative Makes Free Will Impossible 46 7. How the Unsolicited Participation of the Unconscious Makes Free Will Impossible 54 8. Asking When a Child Gains it Illuminates the Incoherence of the Concept "Free Will" 63 9. Overcoming our Reluctance to Overcome the Illusion of Free Will 7110. Why Change as the Basic Universal Process Makes Free Will Impossible 81 11. The Absurdity of Varying Degrees of Free Will 9112. Why the Concept of Free Will is Incoherent 10013. Overcoming Blame, Guilt, Envy and Arrogance by Overcoming the Illusion of Free Will 10814. Why Both Causality and Randomness Make Free Will Impossible 11715. Why Frankfurt's “Second Order Desires” Do Not Allow for a Free Will 12716. Overcoming the Illusion of Free Will as an Evolutionary Leap in Human Consciousness 13717. Revitalizing Religion through Transcending the Illusion of Free Will 14718. Why Humans Cannot Circumvent Natural Law to Gain a Free WillIntroduction 156From the Introduction - For we who appreciate speedily arriving at the heart of a matter, here's how to disprove any free will argument in two easy steps: 1. Ask the free will believer to give an example of a choice they consider to be freely willed. 2. Ask the free will believer to say whether or not that choice was caused. Congratulations; you've just succeeded. If the free will believer says the choice was caused, the ensuing causal regression makes free will impossible. If the free will believer says the choice was uncaused, that would mean the choice was random. Random thoughts are clearly not what we mean when we refer to a choice as freely willed. You can easily apply this two-step refutation to any, and all, free will arguments. That's the long and short of it; now the details.From the author: Because of the significance of this very likely world-changing book, I've chosen to, as much as possible and practical, not financially profit from it's sale. For my book to be listed on Amazon.com, Amazon's CreateSpace publishing service requires that I set my list price above $7.03, so I've set it to $7.04. I've also published a FREE online, downloadable, edition at Google Books and The Internet Archive. I'd like to publish for Kindle soon, and Amazon's policy requires that authors charge at least 99 cents for the Kindle edition. However, because I've contributed the online edition to the public domain, I'll hopefully be able to publish a free Kindle edition through one of the Internet libraries.

Download The Fall Of The Prison books, Examining prisons from the perspectives of sociology, theology, history, and biblical exegesis, Griffith argues that the church has taken a woefully wrong turn by aligning itself with the traditional justice system. He shows how prisons are clearly ineffective at deterring crime and rehabilitating offenders and maintains that Christians should be even more concerned with how the prison fails in principle than how it fails in practice.

No Child Left Behind And The Illusion Of Reform

Book by Thomas Stewart Poetter, No Child Left Behind And The Illusion Of Reform Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download No Child Left Behind And The Illusion Of Reform books, No Child Left Behind and the Illusion of Reform highlights the scholarship of eight doctoral students in curriculum and their professor, who took on the legal, political, philosophical, social, cultural, economic, and curricular assumptions of the No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB). This book, the manifestation of their work, is a critical examination of the impact of the NCLB on the lives of children, families, and teachers; and the elusive, but powerful, dynamic found between the rhetorical machinations of the law and the ideological touchstones that dominate the American political terrain. This book openly challenges the law with arguments founded on solid research, scholarship, and data. No Child Left Behind and the Illusion of Reform argues that this law is not only a bad idea for children, but also for teachers, parents, schools, and communities because it undermines good teaching through an over-emphasis on testing and measurement. NCLB also pits schools against each other in a competition for limited resources. The book argues that the law sets impossible goals, which further and unnecessarily defeat and deflate the institution of public education.
