Learn the story of the Protocols of the Elders of Zion with iMinds insightful audio knowledge series. The Protocols of the Elders of Zion is the one of the world's most famous conspiracy theories. It is a statement of prejudice and paranoia, a fake historical record and a grand hoax all rolled into one. The Protocols claim to prove that there is a Jewish plot to take over the world and purport to show that Socialism, Liberalism, and every other reformist idea or activity are just tools of a Jewish secret cabal. The Protocols have been discredited many times over their 110-year-old history and would be laughable, except for the tragic role they played in the Twentieth Century. The actual Protocols text is written as if it is a secret document from a shadowy Jewish organization and details a conspiratorial plot to undermine the existing World Order. Each of the 24 sections read as a strategic instruction on how to undermine elements of the existing order.

Egil and Nix, the hard-fighting, harder-drinking fortune hunters of The Hammer and the Blade and A Discourse in Steel, are back to test their mettle and tempt fickle fate. Fantasy fiction has long welcomed adventurous rogues: Fritz Leiber's Fafhrd and the Gray Mouser, George R. R. Martin's Dunk and Egg, and Scott Lynch's Locke Lamora and Jean Tannen have all made their marks. In his Egil & Nix series, New York Times best-selling author Paul S. Kemp introduces a daring new duo to the ranks of fantasy fame - or is it infamy? Nix is a nimble thief with just enough knowledge of magic to get into serious trouble. Egil is the only priest of a discredited god. Together they seek riches and renown, but somehow it is always misadventure and mayhem that find them - even in the dive bar they call home. And their luck has yet to change. All Nix wants to do is cheer Egil up after a bout of heartbreak. And, of course, strike it so rich that they need never worry about their combined bar bill. But when the light-fingered scoundrel plunders a tomb and snatches mysterious golden plates covered in runes, the treasure brings terrifying trouble. Pursued by an abomination full of ravenous hunger and unquenchable wrath, Egil and Nix find all they hold dear - including their beloved tavern - in dire peril. To say nothing of the world itself. 1.

No society is immune from illegitimacy as it affects all social class, races and religious groups. The difference may be that some societies are more open to discuss it while others do not. In a society like India, premarital pregnancy and the resultant unwed motherhood are heavily stigmatized and discriminated. When it comes to the indigenous tribal communities, there is little evidence about the psychosocial life of unwed mothers. Therefore, this book is a response to bridge this knowledge gap guided by the principle assumption that unwed motherhood in tribal communities in India is the result of complex interaction of psychosocial and cultural factors. This book views unwed motherhood as a heavily discredited and dehumanized social identity that disconnects the victims from the mainstream social life. The empowerment needs of these women are different from general tribal women. They experience immense difficulties and dissatisfaction in individual, familial and social life, resulting in reduced psychological well-being and quality of social life. This has produced a wide range of psychosocial and economic disabilities leading to the social exclusion of unwed mothers.
This work explores philosophical accounts of memory, and develops an alternative account of memory in terms of the dispositional theory.Chapter 1 gives an overview over the two central realist theories of memory, namely Direct Realism and Indirect Realism. There, criticisms of the traditional representative and the direct realist theories are developed and evaluated, and both theories are discredited as acceptable theories of memory. Chapter 2 develops a dispositional approach to memory. There, criticisms of the traditional realist theories are replied to, and new explanations within the framework of the dispositional approach are given. The concluding chapter points out epistemological consequences of the dispositional theory, in particular, whether memory proves to be a source of knowledge. It is found that all realist theories share the burden of skepticism. A solution for the skeptical problem can be found on epistemological ground by adopting an externalist view on justification. Finally, the relation of the dispositional account to the other realist theories is outlined.
Inhaltlich unveränderte Neuauflage. In einem Essay beschreibt die afro-amerikanische Autorin Toni Morrison wie eine bestimmte Form von Wissen - "discredited knowledge" - ihr Schreiben beeinflusst hat. Dieses diskreditierte Wissen, so Morrison, werde nur deswegen missachtet, weil es mit der dominanten, weißen Weltsicht nicht kompatibel sei. In ihrem Werk, insbesondere in ihrem 1977 veröffentlichten Roman Song of Solomon nutzt Morrison dieses Wissen um Geister, Magie, afrikanische Traditionen, Oralität und Herkunft, um es im Kontext afroamerikanischer Kultur aus der Diskreditierung zu befreien. Der Roman ist jedoch keinesfalls einzig durch diese Sicht geprägt, vielmehr stellt Morrison die hegemoniale und die diskreditierte Kosmologie einander gegenüber, ohne dabei eine klare Favorisierung auszusprechen. Dadurch gelingt es ihr, dem Leser die Wahl zu überlassen, welche Bewertung er dem ehemals diskrediterten Wissen zusprechen möchte.
In the past, the European social sciences labelled and discredited knowledge that did not follow the definition for scientific knowledge as applied by the European social sciences as an alternative concept of knowledge, as "indigenous" knowledge. Perception has changed with time: Not only has indigenous knowledge become an entrance ticket to the European social science world, but the indigenization of European theories is seen by some as the contribution of "peripheral" social sciences to join the theories of the "centers".This book offers contributions to the discourses about alternative concepts of knowledge, inviting the reader to decide if they are alternative, indigenous, or European types of knowledge. However, in order to make this decision, the reader must know what the nature of the European concepts of science and of scientific knowledge is, this might be a motivation to read a book that presents thoughts claiming to be alternative concepts of knowledge, alternative to the European concept of science.
Did the Hebrew mind work differently from those of people in the Western tradition of civilization? This long-discredited question still lingers in biblical studies. Theologies of the Mind in Biblical Israel approaches the topic of the Israelite mind from a new direction, exploring how the biblical texts themselves, especially Proverbs and Deuteronomy, describe the working of the mind. It demonstrates that the much-discussed role of memory in the Bible is just one part of a general understanding that in the realm of 'knowledge' God and humanity are rivals.
Clear, on-the-ground guidance for Reading Apprenticeship implementation Leading for Literacy provides tools and real-life examples to expand the benefits of a literacy approach that sparks students' engaged reading and thinking across disciplines, from middle school through community college. A companion to the landmark Reading for Understanding, this book guides teachers, leaders, and administrators through the nuts, bolts, benefits, and stumbling blocks of creating Reading Apprenticeship communities that extend a culture of literacy beyond individual classrooms. This book explains how to generate authentic buy-in from teachers and administrators, use the Reading Apprenticeship Framework to turn reform overload into reform coherence, and create literacy teams, professional learning communities, and Reading Apprenticeship communities of practice that sustain an institutional focus on a student-centered, strengths-based culture of literacy. Key insights from Reading Apprenticeship practitioners across the country address how to get started, build momentum, assess progress, and build partnerships and networks across schools, districts, campuses, and regions. Persistently low levels of adolescent literacy continue to short-change students, contribute to discredited high school diplomas, and cause millions of students to drop out of high school and community college. Forty percent or more of community college students require remedial reading courses as college freshman. The researchers at WestEd's Strategic Literacy Initiative developed the Reading Apprenticeship Framework to provide educators with a proven path to improving literacy for all students, and this book provides clear guidance on bringing the framework to life. * How to integrate Reading Apprenticeship with existing reform efforts * How to use formative assessment to promote teacher and student growth * How to coach and empower teachers * How to cultivate literacy leadership * How to provide long-term support for a strong content-literacy program Nationwide classroom testing has shown Reading Apprenticeship to promote not only literacy and content knowledge, but also motivation and positive academic identity--leading to better student outcomes that reach beyond the classroom walls. Leading for Literacy lays out compelling ways to spread the benefits of Reading Apprenticeship, with practical guidance and real-world insight.
