Philosophy studies all reality, all things, and all beings. Philosophy, in general, raises questions everything real. Yet, it always asks about one of the aspects of reality, which becomes our focus of exploration. Philosophy, however, is always “philosophy of” something special, like philosophy of man, philosophy of value, philosophy of nature, and others. This book is concerned with values. It is about philosophy of value, or axiology. What is value? The human life always relates to values. What we hope for as well as what we believe in mostly connect with our values, although we also face physical matters in life. Do we truly pursue the abstract things in life? How do we know we have values? Are values forever related to the good and the sacred? What about the bad, the evil, and the ugly? This book explores the world of values through various axiological standpoints, debates, the problems of values in human life, factual and evaluative judgments, the structure of human values, issues of values in culture, and close personal relationships. This book, finally, motivates us to identify, discover or rediscover our core values by formulating personal axiological perspectives.

Problems in Lexicography is an essential, classic work of practical lexicography (the practice of writing dictionaries) and meta-lexicography. Originally published over sixty years ago, it was based on the proceedings of the Indiana University Conference on Lexicography, held November 11–12, 1960. It set a standard that still holds today, three generations later. This critical and historical edition, brilliantly researched and presented by Michael Adams, explores the enduring legacy of this classic work and promises to extend its life further into the twenty-first century. Problems in Lexicography: A Critical / Historical Edition amply demonstrates that this unique work is a book of historical significance and a worthy prologue to lexicography's present.

Fight the Freshman Fifteen, Sleepless Nights, and Other Pitfalls of College Life Welcome to college life. It's full of possibilities — and pitfalls. Cafeteria food is awful, but there sure is a lot of it. And you can eat as much (or more) of anything — and everything — as you want. And in a single year of study, you can grow a gut that will haunt you for the rest of your life. No one in the dorm is going to tell you when to go to bed, and you can wear each all-night cram session like a badge of honor. But on two hours of sleep a night, the circles under your eyes will make you look like a raccoon before midterms — which you'll then probably fail. And exercise — what's that? Say hello to thunder thighs and saggy bat-wing arms. Sound awful? Good. It's supposed to. But take heart: With the simple advice you'll find in this book, you can eat right and get the sleep and exercise you need to excel academically and creatively. You'll get the straight story on how to avoid the freshman fifteen, and learn how to make good choices in the cafeteria and make smart snacks on those few useless appliances they allow you to keep in your room. You'll get tips on fitting regular exercise into a busy class schedule and getting enough sleep without being the only one who never — NEVER — makes it to the latest of the late-night parties. Eat smart to fight the freshman fifteen, food allergies, and fatigue Prepare smart snacks right in your dorm room — without burning the place down! Get enough sleep without missing out on too much late night fun Build the body of your dreams with smart exercise tips Make the grade without succumbing to stress Includes delicious dorm-room snack recipes The Smart Student's Guide to Healthy Dorm Living is a must for any parent sending their student off to college. The book is packed with practical tips for healthy eating. It helps answer the questions I hear from college students every day. This book is the answer to helping teens stay healthy and fit as they transcend the college years into adulthood. Hats off to M.J. and Fred Smith for giving students and easy-to-read survival guide to healthy eating at college. -Ann Blocker, RD, LD, CDE, director of nutrition at Veterans Memorial Hospital and nutrition consultant to Luther College, in Decorah, IA A great book, so practical and useful-fantastic! -Jane Hasek, MSN, Ed.D., chancellor emerita and distinguished professor at Allen College in Waterloo, IA I've lost another two pounds this week. I know that I'm losing it through exercise and diet. My stamina in exercising is increasing while my appetite is decreasing…I feel that I am working harder and longer without being any more tired. I really enjoy exercising and feel great doing it. My mood is better because I feel better about myself. -Andy Wannigman, student I have been using the tips in the book and have a success story. I feel great! It's that plain and simple. I feel better about myself. I'll continue this plan next semester. I liked the results a lot and I hope to get more of the same the longer I participate… -Dana Roberts, student

“Nearly knocked me off my metaphoric stool.”?—Diann Blakely, Antioch Review “When Julie Sheehan takes the lyric poem out for a few drinks, everyone winds up talking fast and loose. The lush, agreeably-out-of-style cocktails who take the stage in Bar Book . . . [pull] the reader through this artful, wry, and unlikely book’s tales of hearts on the rocks and hearts surviving.”—Mark Doty

The Unity of Male and Female in Jesus Christ

An Exegetical Study of Galatians 3.28c in Light of Paul's Theology of Promise Gesila Nneka Uzukwu. Gove, Philip B., and The Merriam-Webster Editorial Staff (eds.), Webster's Third New International Dictionary (Springfield, ...

This detailed exegetical study of Gal 3.28c in the light of 3.14-29 and 4.21-31 shows not only how integral this verse is to chapters 3 and 4 of the letter, but also that it is the key to understanding Paul's theological argument of promise in Galatians. Paul's use of the story of Abraham in 3.14-29 and of Sarah in 4.21-31 in light of God's promise to the patriarch and the matriarch in Genesis 17 have implications displays the joint role of Abraham and Sarah in bringing about the promise, and underscores the unity of the believers in Christ. In light of this, Uzukwu examines important aspects of the history of the interpretation of Gal 3.28c. Uzukwu sheds light on the link between Gal 3:28 and the three expressions of gratitude found in Greek writings. Links are also revealed to the three blessings of gratitude that appear at the beginning of the Jewish cycle of morning prayers, Gen 1.27c (in the Septuagint), and the alleged pre-Pauline baptismal formula. She goes further to demonstrate how 3.28c is related to the unity of Galatians 3-4, focusing on the theme of the promise as the text discusses the effect of the Christ event in bringing about the fulfillment of that promise.
