No judgement of taste is innocent - we are all snobs. Pierre Bourdieu's Distinction brilliantly illuminates the social pretentions of the middle classes in the modern world, focusing on the tastes and preferences of the French bourgeoisie. First published in 1979, the book is at once a vast ethnography of contemporary France and a dissection of the bourgeois mind. In the course of everyday life we constantly choose between what we find aesthetically pleasing, and what we consider tacky, merely trendy, or ugly. Taste is not pure. Bourdieu demonstrates that our different aesth

Powers of Distinction

On Religion and Modernity

Author: Nancy Levene

Publisher: University of Chicago Press

ISBN: 022650767X

In this major new work, philosopher of religion Nancy Levene examines the elemental character of religion and modernity. Deep in their operating systems, she argues, are dualisms of opposition and identity that cannot be reconciled with the forms of life they ostensibly support. These dualisms are dead ends, but they conceal a richer position—another kind of dualism constitutive of mutual relation. This dualism is difficult to distinguish and its concept of relation difficult to commit to. It risks contention and even violence. But it is also the indispensable support for modernity’s most innovative ideals: democracy, criticism, and interpretation. In readings from Abraham to the present, Levene recovers this richer dualism in its difference from the alternatives—other dualisms, nondualism, multiplication. From Abraham we get the biblical call to give up tribal belonging for a promised land of covenantal relation. Yet modernity, inclusive of this call, is also the principle that critiques the promise when it divides self from other, us from them. Drawing on a long tradition of thinkers and scholars even as she breaks new ground, Levene offers here nothing less than a new way of understanding modernity as an ethical claim about our world, a philosophy of the powers of distinction to include rather than to divide.

Communion with the Triune God (Foreword by Kevin J. Vanhoozer)

Does it make a difference that the God Christians claim to worship has revealed himself as triune-the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit? Does this fundamental truth of biblical authority have an effect on a believer's personal fellowship with God? Puritan theologian John Owen recognized the great need for every believer to understand the triune God. Communion with the Triune God revisits the truth presented by John Owen and challenges all believers to truly recognize and appreciate the ministry that God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit have in their lives. This work of John Owen encourages Christians to enjoy true communion with each person of the triune God.

How do the three persons of the Trinity relate to each other? Evangelicals continue to wrestle with this complex issue and its implications for our understanding of men's and women’s roles in both the home and the church. Challenging feminist theologies that view the Trinity as a model for evangelical egalitarianism, One God in Three Persons turns to the Bible, church history, philosophy, and systematic theology to argue for the eternal submission of the Son to the Father.

The Discriminating Therapist

Asking "How" Questions, Making Distinctions, And Finding Direction in Therapy

Instead of analyzing why someone makes the choices they make, The Discriminating Therapist focuses on how people choose. Dr. Yapko developed this innovative and practical perspective for helping therapists identify and target therapeutic goals in order to make therapy more effective by helping clients make better, life enhancing decisions. Conventional wisdom can guide us but may also confuse us when good pieces of advice contradict each other. Consider these examples: • Look before you leap BUT he who hesitates is lost. • If at first you don't succeed, try, try again BUT there's no sense in beating a dead horse. • Better to be safe than sorry BUT nothing ventured, nothing gained. So which piece of sage advice is best to follow? The only reasonable answer: It depends. The Discriminating Therapist addresses the obvious follow-up question, "It depends on what?" What factors should our clients take into account when they try to answer questions such as these: • How do you know whether to listen to your feelings or override them? • How do you know whether you should stay in or leave a relationship? • How do you know whether you're taking a sensible or foolish risk? The Discriminating Therapist provides answers by describing how therapists can quickly identify key discriminations the client needs to make, then teach a discrimination strategy that can help solve problems surprisingly quickly. Twelve common discriminations are addressed, and typical examples of problems every therapist encounters are provided with an innovative, practical perspective to guide effective treatments. The Discriminating Therapist makes identifying and hitting therapeutic targets faster and easier. Dr. Yapko has spent over 30 years developing an approach to therapy that is unusually pragmatic. Too often therapy has focused on explaining why people do what they do but too often do not identify what can be done differently. In The Discriminating Therapist, Dr. Yapko offers concrete ways to define problems in solvable terms then gives therapists the tools to do the same in their clinical practices.

Differences That Make a Difference

Russell Ackoff's long and distinguished career as the doyen of Design and Systems Thinking was built around a collection of deceptively simple-but often overlooked-principles and observations. In Differences That Make a Difference-the last of his many books-Ackoff determined to distill the wisdom of a lifetime into a "glossary" that would be easily accessible to managers, employees, students, and academics alike. His aim was to dissolve (not solve or resolve) some of the many disputes in professional and private life that revolve around meaning and (mis)understanding. For example, development and growth do not mean the same thing. A cemetery or rubbish heap can grow without developing, whereas a person continues to develop long after he or she has stopped growing. Ackoff understood that getting to the bottom of differences like this one could have far-reaching practical consequences for improving our organizational health. In Differences That Make a Difference, he has succeeded magnificently in creating what Charles Handy in his Foreword calls "a manual for clear thinking." And if the world ever needed clear thinking...
