With 16 topic clusters and a range of readings from short visual arguments to longer, more complex pieces, the Reader gives students a wealth of sources, models, and inspiration for their own compositions.

THIS TITLE HAS BEEN UPDATED TO REFLECT THE 2016 MLA UPDATES! Our editorial team has updated this text based on content from The MLA Handbook, 8th Edition. Browse our catalog or contact your representative for a full listing of updated titles and packages, or to request a custom ISBN. With thoroughly revised advice for finding, evaluating, and documenting sources, this handy spiral-bound booklet covers the essential information college students need for research assignments in more than 30 disciplines. New, up-to-date documentation models guide students as they cite common sources and newer sources — such as blogs, podcasts, online videos, and reposted Web content — in one of four documentation styles (MLA, APA, Chicago, and CSE). And new advice and examples help students engage in the research process, find entry points in debates, and develop their authority as researchers. The many examples, according to one college librarian, "are realistic and relevant." Research and Documentation in the Digital Age is the perfect companion to any college textbook.

Meisterhafte Literatur im Kurzformat – Don DeLillos erster Erzählband Mit seinen 15 Romanen hat sich Don DeLillo Weltruhm erschrieben. Er gilt international als einer der bedeutendsten Autoren und aussichtsreicher Nobelpreiskandidat. Zum ersten Mal legt DeLillo nun einen Erzählband vor. Die neun zwischen 1979 und 2011 entstandenen und hier erstmals gesammelten Erzählungen bieten eine virtuose Tour de Force durch den literarischen Kosmos dieses Ausnahmeschriftstellers.Die Karibik, Griechenland, Manhattan, ein Gefängnis für Wirtschaftsdelikte und das Weltall sind die Schauplätze dieser neun Erzählungen, die gleichsam als Kondensat des einzigartigen Oeuvres DeLillos gelesen werden können. Oft geht es in den Geschichten um Individuen, die sich in rätselhaften oder beängstigenden Umständen wiederfinden: ein Paar, durch einen tropischen Sturm festgehalten auf einer karibischen Insel, konfrontiert mit unzuverlässigen Flugauskünften – und einer alleinreisenden Frau. Zwei Männer in einer Raumkapsel, die auf einen von Stürmen und Kriegen zerrissenen Erdball herabschauen und Radiostimmen aus einer vergangenen Zeit hören. Zwei Nonnen, die als Streetworker in der South Bronx arbeiten und ein Wunder beglaubigen: die nächtliche Erscheinung eines ermordeten Kindes auf einer Werbetafel – der Engel Esmeralda.

A Manual for Writers of Research Papers, Theses, and Dissertations, Ninth Edition

Chicago Style for Students and Researchers

Author: Kate L. Turabian

Publisher: University of Chicago Press

ISBN: 022643060X

Category: Reference

Page: 464

When Kate L. Turabian first put her famous guidelines to paper, she could hardly have imagined the world in which today’s students would be conducting research. Yet while the ways in which we research and compose papers may have changed, the fundamentals remain the same: writers need to have a strong research question, construct an evidence-based argument, cite their sources, and structure their work in a logical way. A Manual for Writers of Research Papers, Theses, and Dissertations—also known as “Turabian”—remains one of the most popular books for writers because of its timeless focus on achieving these goals. This new edition filters decades of expertise into modern standards. While previous editions incorporated digital forms of research and writing, this edition goes even further to build information literacy, recognizing that most students will be doing their work largely or entirely online and on screens. Chapters include updated advice on finding, evaluating, and citing a wide range of digital sources and also recognize the evolving use of software for citation management, graphics, and paper format and submission. The ninth edition is fully aligned with the recently released Chicago Manual of Style, 17th edition, as well as with the latest edition of The Craft of Research. Teachers and users of the previous editions will recognize the familiar three-part structure. Part 1 covers every step of the research and writing process, including drafting and revising. Part 2 offers a comprehensive guide to Chicago’s two methods of source citation: notes-bibliography and author-date. Part 3 gets into matters of editorial style and the correct way to present quotations and visual material. A Manual for Writers also covers an issue familiar to writers of all levels: how to conquer the fear of tackling a major writing project. Through eight decades and millions of copies, A Manual for Writers has helped generations shape their ideas into compelling research papers. This new edition will continue to be the gold standard for college and graduate students in virtually all academic disciplines.

Der Ungehorsam als ein psychologisches und ethisches Problem

Disobedience as a Psychological and Moral Problem

Author: Erich Fromm

Publisher: Open Publishing Rights GmbH

ISBN: 395912077X

Category: Psychology

Page: N.A

View: 7275

In "Der Ungehorsam als ein psychologisches und ethisches Problem" stellt Fromm die Fähigkeit und Notwendigkeit zum Ungehorsam systematisch dar. Er verbindet dabei die Fähigkeit zum Ungehorsam mit seiner Lehre vom humanistischen Gewissen. Dieses legitimiert den Ungehorsam und stellt eine Gegenkraft zur autoritären Charakterorientierung dar, für die Gehorsam eine Haupttugend ist. Fromms Plädoyer für den Ungehorsam richtet sich aber nicht nur gegen alle Formen des Autoritarismus. Es geht darum, auch gegen das, was als gesunder Menschenverstand und als „völlig normal“ gilt, ungehorsam zu sein und als common non-sense und eine „Pathologie der Normalität“ anzusehen. Heute werden beispielweise die Selbstregulation des Marktes, der Wettbewerb, die Gewinnmaximierung, das endlose Wachstumsstreben oder technische Lösungen bei menschlichen Problemen als „völlig normal“ angesehen. Diesem common non-sense gegenüber gilt es ungehorsam zu sein, um den Menschen und das individuelle und soziale Wohl-Sein wieder zum Maßstab des wirtschaftlichen, politischen und gesellschaftlichen Handelns zu machen.

Good college writers are curious, engaged, reflective, and responsible. They read critically. They write with purpose. They tune into their audience. They collaborate and seek feedback. They know credible evidence makes them credible researchers. They revise.

New writing guides support students as they compose in an ever-wider variety of genres, including multimodal genres. New reading support encourages students to become active readers. Retooled research advice emphasizes inquiry and helps writers cite even the trickiest digital sources confidently and responsibly. Best of all, the Handbook remains a trusted companion for students because it is accessible, comprehensive, and authoritative. Instructors benefit, too: A substantially revised Instructor’s Edition includes Nancy Sommers’s personal mentoring—more than 100 new concrete tips for teaching with the handbook. Finally, integrated digital content is easily assignable and helps students practice and apply the handbook’s lessons. See what's in the LaunchPad
