With a new foreword by Charles Lemert 'Its greatness...lies in ceaseless and varied use of the money form to unearth and conceptually reveal incommensurabilities of all kinds, in social reality fully as much as in thought itself.' - Fredric Jameson In The Philosophy of Money, Georg Simmel puts money on the couch. He provides us with a classic analysis of the social, psychological and philosophical aspects of the money economy, full of brilliant insights into the forms that social relationships take. He analyzes the relationships of money to exchange, human personality, the position of women, and individual freedom. Simmel also offers us prophetic insights into the consequences of the modern money economy and the division of labour, in particular the processes of alienation and reification in work and urban life. An immense and profound piece of work it demands to be read today and for years to come as a stunning account of the meaning, use and culture of money. Georg Simmel (1858-1918) was born in Berlin, the youngest of seven children. He studied philosophy and history at the University of Berlin and was one of the first generation of great German sociologists that included Max Weber.

"La política como vocación" integra junto a "la ciencia como vocación" la obra "el político y el científico" donde se receptan una serie de charlas que Max Weber dio antes de que concluya la Primera Guerra Mundial. En este breve repaso nos detendremos sólo en el primero de los textos.La obra recolecta reflexiones de Weber acerca de "¿Qué es la política?", el rol del burócrata en la actualidad (no ha perdido vigencia lo dicho aunque hayan pasado casi 100 años) y cómo las democracias modernas estructuran los sistemas de partidos.Merece una distinción especial las lineas dedicadas a pensar la relación entre la Ética y la Política. Weber invita a dilucidar las diferencias entre "la ética de las convicciones" y "la ética de la responsabilidad". Interpretando por la primera a aquella que se vincula con los principios y valores de forma tal que resulta indiferente el resultado de la acción emprendida. Separa este perfil de político de aquel que se guía por "la ética de la responsabilidad" el cual se orienta a resultados y hace un esfuerzo permanente de síntesis entre "lo posible", "lo imposible" y "lo ideal".

The Catholic Church has, for generations, been reluctant to come to terms with capitalism. Novak argues that a 100-year debate within the Catholic Church has yielded a richer and more humane vision of capitalism than that described in Weber's Protestant Ethic.

The Accidental Immigrant

Transatlantic humorist David Bouchier brings wit, wisdom and a touch of philosophy to the everyday dramas of American suburban life. This book brings together more than a hundred essays, originally broadcast on National Public Radio, or published in his Out of Order column in the Sunday New York Times. When work and marriage brought David Bouchier to Long Island in 1986 the endless suburbs seemed mysterious and exotic to him. He was inspired to begin writing essays and newspaper columns about his life there - a personal and public diary of the Resident Alien experience. In 1992 a weekly public radio essay was added to the newspaper columns, and thousands of listeners still enjoy David's weekly radio broadcasts. These are the affectionate and sometimes acerbic observations of an Accidental Immigrant, who still finds life in America endlessly stimulating and wonderfully strange. David Bouchier's thoughts about love, life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness in the suburbs will make you smile, and make you think. Boring suburban rituals like lawn care mall shopping, wedding rehearsals, and barbecues will never seem the same again.

Mixture Toxicity

Linking Approaches from Ecological and Human Toxicology

In the last decade and a half, great progress has been made in the development of concepts and models for mixture toxicity, both in human and environmental toxicology. However, due to their different protection goals, developments have often progressed in parallel but with little integration. Arguably the first book to clearly link ecotoxicology and classic human toxicology, Mixture Toxicity: Linking Approaches from Ecological and Human Toxicology incorporates extensive reviews of exposure to toxicants, toxicokinetics and toxicodynamics, toxicity of mixtures, and risk assessment. The book examines developments in both fields, compares and contrasts their current state of the art, and identifies where one field can learn from the other. Each chapter provides an essential overview of the state of the art in both human and ecotoxicological mixture risk assessment, focusing on the work published in the last fifteen years. The coverage progresses from exposure to risk assessment, at each step identifying the special complications typically raised by mixtures. Based on in-depth discussions among specialists representing different disciplines and approaches, the chapters each address: Exposure — how to quantify the amounts of chemicals that may enter the living organism Kinetics, dynamics, and metabolism — how the chemicals enter an organism, travel within the organism, how they are metabolized and reach the target site, and explain development of toxicity with time Toxicity — what are the chemicals’ detrimental effects on the organism Test design and complex mixture characterization — how chemicals interact, how to measure effects of mixtures, and how to identify responsible chemicals Risk assessment — how to assess for risks in humans and the environment An unusual combination of different points of view on exposure to and risk assessment of chemical mixtures, this book summarizes current knowledge on combined effects of toxicant mixtures, information that is generally only available in a very fragmented form as individual journal papers. It identifies possible crosslinks and includes recommendations for mutual developments that can improve the state of knowledge on mixture toxicity and ultimately lead to better and more integrated risk assessment.

The Other Anti-Semitism

In anti-Semitism we usually imagine the Jews to be the victims. In this book, the author shows the Jews to also be the aggressor, alongside the Muslims, both of whom have for centuries persecuted the Christians of the Middle East, a forgotten but not insignificant Semitic entity. After a survey of history interlaced with personal experience, the author sets a challenge for the world at large, the Christians, Jews and Muslims to move and stem the rising tide of persecution of the forgotten Christians of the Middle East. The author shares a Semitic dream, based on tolerance, mutual respect, freedom of expression and the freedom to choose one's faith without fear or favor.
