Reoccupy Earth [Table Of Contents], David Wood Apr 2019

Reoccupy Earth [Table Of Contents], David Wood

Philosophy

Habit rules our lives. And yet climate change and the catastrophic future it portends, makes it clear that we cannot go on like this.

Our habits are integral to narratives of the good life, to social norms and expectations, as well as to economic reality. Such shared shapes are vital. Yet while many of our individual habits seem perfectly reasonable, when aggregated together they spell disaster. Beyond consumerism, other forms of life and patterns of dwelling are clearly possible. But how can we get there from here?

Philosophy is about emancipation—from illusions, myths, and oppression. In Reoccupy Earth, the ...


Exterranean [Table Of Contents], Phillip John Usher Mar 2019

Exterranean [Table Of Contents], Phillip John Usher

Literature

“For anyone who might be suffering from Anthropocene fatigue, this is a book to jolt you from your slumbers. What happens to the globe when we shift attention from the outward projection of emissions to extraction ? The Earth we thought we knew, and were already mourning, takes on a stunning new critical light.”—Claire Colebrook, Pennsylvania State University

Exterranean concerns the extraction of stuff from the Earth, a process in which matter goes from being sub- to exterranean. By bringing a rich archive of nonmodern texts and images from across Europe, into conversation with the contemporary work of Bruno Latour ...


Japanese Pamphlets, Volume I, 1906-1914 Feb 2019

Japanese Pamphlets, Volume I, 1906-1914

Japanese Pamphlets

Nineteen politically oriented pamphlets published between 1906 to 1914 that set forth the pros and cons of Japanese continuing to reside in the United States and California. The White population was particularly concerned about the mixing of races and wanted laws that not only excluded the Japanese who were living in the United States (including children born in the United States) from citizenship but also from leasing or owning land. Those who were anti-Japanese described the Japanese as an inferior race incapable of assimilating into the White population. The pamphlets in this volume also include responses from the Japan Society ...

Japanese Pamphlets, Volume Ii, 1912-1920

Japanese Pamphlets

Twenty-nine politically oriented pamphlets published between 1912-1929 set forth the pros and cons of Japanese continuing to reside in the United States and California. The White population was particularly concerned about the mixing of races and wanted laws that not only excluded the Japanese who were living in the United States (including children born in the United States) from citizenship but also from leasing or owning land. Arguments used against the Japanese living in America included claims of surreptitious entries (e.g., being smuggled in through Mexico), Japanese use of “Picture Prides, Japanese efforts to control the soil, Japanese use ...


Japanese Pamphlets, Volume Iii, 1918-1925 Feb 2019

Japanese Pamphlets, Volume Iii, 1918-1925

Japanese Pamphlets

Twenty-two politically oriented pamphlets published between 1906 to 1914 that set forth the pros and cons of Japanese continuing to reside in the United States and California. The White population was particularly concerned about the mixing of races and wanted laws that not only excluded the Japanese who were living in the United States (including children born in the United States) from citizenship but also from leasing or owning land. Those who were anti-Japanese described the Japanese as an inferior race incapable of assimilating into the White population and includes a pamphlet entitled “Preliminary Report of the Mental Capacity of ...


Japanese Pamphlets, Volume Iv, 1907-1925 Feb 2019

Japanese Pamphlets, Volume Iv, 1907-1925

Japanese Pamphlets

Ten politically oriented pamphlets published between 1907 to 1925 that set forth largely anti-Japanese contentions against those residing in the United States and California. The White population continued to be concerned about the mixing of races and wanted additional laws that not only excluded the Japanese who were living in the United States (including children born in the United States) from citizenship but also from leasing or owning land. The arguments found in the first three volumes of pamphlets continued on into Volume IV including a V.H. McClatchy’s 1925 pamphlet entitled: “Guarding the Immigration Gates: What Has Been ...


Chinese Immigration-Exclusion Pamphlets, Volume Iii, 1857-1902 Feb 2019

Chinese Immigration-Exclusion Pamphlets, Volume Iii, 1857-1902

Eleven pamphlets published between 1857 and 1902 regarding the treatment of the exempt classes of Chinese in the United States, arguments in favor of immigration with measurers recommended by the Immigration Union, the church and the Chinese, competition with Chinese and the necessity of a stringent exclusion clause, and letters written by members of the Chinese community on the Chinese question.


Chinese Immigration-Exclusion Pamphlets, Volume I, 1876-1914 Feb 2019

Chinese Immigration-Exclusion Pamphlets, Volume I, 1876-1914

Chinese Pamphlets

Seventeen pamphlets published between 1876 and 1914 that set forth the pros and cons of Chinese immigration into the United States, including arguments as to why the Chinese should be excluded. Those claims were in part that the Chinese being non-assimilative, undesirable, destructive to competition and hence the need to protect American labor and White citizens. The Chinese were blamed for the spread of slavery, criminal activities, highbinders (assassins), opium smoking, leprosy and other imported evils and the overall corruption of California.


Chinese Immigration-Exclusion Pamphlets, Volume Ii, 1870-1906 Feb 2019

Chinese Immigration-Exclusion Pamphlets, Volume Ii, 1870-1906

Chinese Pamphlets

Eight pamphlets published between 1870 and 1906 consisting of topics such as the treatment of the exempt classes of Chinese in the United States, Chinese immigration, Chinese mining license tax, the evils of the Mongolian immigration, the “true sentiments” of the Republican Party of California on the Chinese question, the nature and effect of the competition by Chinese with American labor, the church and Chinese immigration, cholera in San Francisco and the conflict of the races.

Chinese Immigration-Exclusion Pamphlets, Volume Iv, 1855-1908

Chinese Pamphlets

Nine pamphlets published between 1855 and 1908 regarding Chinese in the United States and, in particular, in California, containing arguments for and against the Chinese being in America, past relations with the Chinese, describing the Chinese as heathens and a continuation of the claims made against the Chinese in the first three volumes of Chinese Immigration-Exclusion Pamphlets.

The Legacy Of Natural Species And Substantial Form For Thomistic Evolution, James R. Hofmann Feb 2019

The Legacy Of Natural Species And Substantial Form For Thomistic Evolution, James R. Hofmann

Forum Lectures

Exploration of theistic evolution within a Thomistic framework has taken on the label of Thomistic evolution. Although the conceptual boundaries of this approach are not precise, a historical trajectory of its scholastic methodology can be traced back to the views of Aquinas himself. An enduring central concept in this tradition has been the idea of substantial form. For Aquinas, distinct substantial forms were associated with the kinds of animals and plants that have no prior ancestry and are ascribed to God's production during the Genesis days of adornment. Later in the tradition, the early twentieth century Jesuit Erich Wasmann ...

1912 - The Missions And Missionaries Of California, Vol. Ii, Upper California, Part I, General History, Zephyrin Engelhardt Feb 2019

1912 - The Missions And Missionaries Of California, Vol. Ii, Upper California, Part I, General History, Zephyrin Engelhardt

Franciscan Publications

Volume II was a general accounting of the missions and missionaries in Upper California. Section I addressed the establishment and administration of the missions by Fr. Junípero Serra. Section II covered the administration of Fr. Fermín Francisco de Lasuén and Fr. Estevan Tapis. The author posited that the real object of the conquest and occupation of Alta California was not the establishment of the Catholic faith in California but rather to fund expeditions and secure the land from the Russians and others who were making expeditions in the region. Engelhardt's evidence was the fact that the Spanish government seized ...

Franciscan Publications

The fourth and final volume in Engelhardt's series on the general history of the California missions and generally concludes with the narrative in the early 1850s time period. The author noted that, "... a cursory view of the situation revealed such un common struggles in behalf of the Indians against military usurpation and colonist cupidity, accompanied and followed by such extraordinary misrepresentations and calumnies, that only a documentary history would satisfy the critical student and intelligent reader. ... The character of the missionaries, their religious and moral principles, their object, methods, resources, successes and reverses were examined and recorded in these ...


1897 - The Franciscans In California, Zephyrin Engelhardt Feb 2019

1897 - The Franciscans In California, Zephyrin Engelhardt

Franciscan Publications

Engelhardt noted that much had bee written about those who first introduced Christianity and civilization in California but little was reliable due to ignorance, malice, exaggeration and misstatements. Up to 1785, Engelhardt consulted original Spanish documents and compared those with statements of H. H. Bancroft. According to the author, with regard to the missions from 1831 through 1850, Bancroft was almost the only authority offering any accurate information. He believed as to historic facts, that Bancroft's work was reliable and all the more valuable because it came from a non-Catholic source.

The Ethics Of Human-Animal Relationships And Public Discourse: A Case Study Of Lions Bred For Their Bones, Peter Coals, Dawn Burnham, Andrew Loveridge, David W. Macdonald, Michael 'T Sas-Rolfes, Vivvienne Williams, John A. Vucetich Feb 2019

The Ethics Of Human-Animal Relationships And Public Discourse: A Case Study Of Lions Bred For Their Bones, Peter Coals, Dawn Burnham, Andrew Loveridge, David W. Macdonald, Michael 'T Sas-Rolfes, Vivvienne Williams, John A. Vucetich

School of Forest Resources and Environmental Science Publications

Conservation and natural resource management are increasingly attending the ethical elements of public decisions. Ethical considerations are challenging, in part, because they typically require accounting for the moral consideration of various human and nonhuman forms of life, whose interests sometimes conflict (or seem to conflict). A valuable tool for such evaluations is the formal analysis of ethical arguments. An ethical argument is a collection of premises, logically interrelated, to yield a conclusion that can be expressed in the form, “We ought to…” According to the rules of logic, a conclusion is supported by an argument if all its premises are ...
