The Foundations And Early Development Of Mormon Mission Theory, David Golding 2010 Claremont Graduate University

The Foundations And Early Development Of Mormon Mission Theory, David Golding

CGU Theses & Dissertations

This study seeks to answer a fundamental question facing missiologists and historians of Mormonism: given their sustained preoccupation with converting others to Mormonism and their thriving tradition of missionary work, how do Mormons conceive of their mission? By focusing on the theoretical frame in which Mormon missionaries imagined the non-Mormon world, prepared for missionary engagement, and derived their expectations for their mission work, this study aims to illuminate the development of Mormon missionary activities and explain the processes by which Mormons fashioned for themselves a missional character. Beginning with Joseph Smith and the emergence of his missional thought and ending ...

John Wilkes And The Enlightenment, stephen carruthers 2009 Dublin Institute of Technology

John Wilkes And The Enlightenment, Stephen Carruthers

stephen carruthers

On the basis of a limited literary output and a scandalous reputation, historians have often marginalised John Wilkes’s role in the development of radical political ideas in England in the 1760s and 1770s. This monograph re-evaluates Wilkes’s contribution in the context of his association with the radical Enlightenment. Firstly it examines Wilkes’s collaboration with the poet Charles Churchill on the North Briton and Wilkes’s Introduction to the History of England written in exile. Secondly, it examines Wilkes’s extensive association with leading philosophes - and in particular d’Holbach, Diderot, Suard, Helvétius, and Chastellux - reflected in correspondence ...

Concepts In Theoretical Thought: An Introductory Essay, Lajos Brons 2009 Nihon University

Concepts In Theoretical Thought: An Introductory Essay, Lajos Brons

Lajos Brons

(first paragraphs; not abstract) - The idea that our language somehow influences our thought can be found in philosophical and scientific traditions of different continents and with different roots and objectives. Yet, beyond the mere theoretical, explorations of the idea are relatively scarce, and are mostly limited to relations between very concrete conceptual categories and subjective experiencing and remembering – to some kind of ‘psychologies of folk-ontology’. Thought as process, reasoning or ‘thinking’, and the role of more complex or abstract concepts in (such) thought tend to be mostly ignored in psychology and philosophy. Conceptual and intellectual history, on the other hand ...


Sex And Race In The Black Atlantic: Mulatto Devils And Multiracial Messiahs, Daniel McNeil 2009 Carleton University

Sex And Race In The Black Atlantic: Mulatto Devils And Multiracial Messiahs, Daniel Mcneil

Daniel McNeil

Lyrical, sophisticated and timely, acclaimed scholar Daniel McNeil’s book, Sex and Race in the Black Atlantic: Mulatto Devils and Multiracial Messiahs unearths the 'liberal lies' that so often surround the experience of multiraciality. What makes this book so spectacular is McNeil’s attention to detail as he traces the insights of Black Atlantic studies, asking how it pertains to the field of critical mixed race studies. McNeil deftly travels from Britain to North America and back again, asking important questions about how we understand the complex relationship between Blackness and multiracial identity. This is the first book to carefully ...


Rediscovering Radical History, Terry Irving 2009 University of Wollongong

Rediscovering Radical History, Terry Irving

Terry Irving

This article examines aspects of the connection between radical history and labour history in Australia. It begins by resurrecting the forgotten history work by intellectuals in the labour movement from the 1880s to the 1950s, and the conservative attacks on radical history in the 50s and 60s. It continues by highlighting the early attempts to keep this radical tradition alive among labour historians, and concludes by criticising Robin Gollan's failure to distinguish popular democracy from the democratic possibilities of representative government.

Radical Sydney - Places, Portraits And Unruly Episodes, Terry Irving, Rowan Cahill 2009 Honorary Professorial Fellow

Radical Sydney - Places, Portraits And Unruly Episodes, Terry Irving, Rowan Cahill

Terence H Irving, Dr (Terry)

Sydney is represented to its citizens and to the rest of the world as a postcard, an impressive, beautiful city, a desirable tourist destination.

But there has always been another Sydney not viewed so fondly by the city’s rulers, a radical Sydney they are intent on ‘disappearing’ beneath concrete and glass. In the arc of working-class suburbs to the south and west, menace and disaffection developed. From the early nineteenth century through to the late twentieth century these suburbs were large and explosive places of marginalised ideas, bohemian neighbourhoods, dissident politics and contentious action.

Through a series of snapshots ...


La Protection Des Civils Dans Les Nouvelles Configurations Conflictuelles : Retour Au Droit Des Gens Ou Dépassement Du Droit International Humanitaire, Gregory Lewkowicz 2009 Université Libre de Bruxelles

La Protection Des Civils Dans Les Nouvelles Configurations Conflictuelles : Retour Au Droit Des Gens Ou Dépassement Du Droit International Humanitaire, Gregory Lewkowicz

Gregory Lewkowicz

In this paper, the development of alternative regulatory tools (codes of conduct, monitoring mechanisms, etc.) dealing with the protection of civilians during armed conflicts is scrutinized in the context of “new wars”. The paper analyses the connections between these alternative regulatory tools and classical international humanitarian law (IHL) instruments. The paper suggests that the profusion of alternative regulatory tools can help to disseminate classical IHL norms and to adapt them to contemporary warfare. The paper also envisages the possibility of a new “lex armorum” emerging from these new regulatory tools and challenging classical IHL.

Pi(O)Us Medievalism Vs. Catholic Modernism: The Case Of George Tyrell, Richard Utz 2009 Western Michigan University

Pi(O)Us Medievalism Vs. Catholic Modernism: The Case Of George Tyrell, Richard Utz

Richard Utz

Investigates the use of "medievalism" by George Tyrell in his book, Medievalism. A Reply to Cardinal Mercier (1908). Tyrell, who argues in favor of a modern(ist), intelligent, Catholic faith, sees the Church's reorientation toward the Middle Ages in the late nineteenth and early twentieth century as a misdirected form of originalism, which he rejects as "medievalism."
