Friedrich Nietzsche by Curtis Cate( Book )

19 editions published between 1999 and 2005 in English and Portuguese and held by 1,134 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Friedrich Nietzsche was, with little doubt, the most intensely personal, egotistically subjective, and fearlessly provocative thinker the Western world has yet seen. The protean diversity of his affirmations make him one of the most seminal and influential of modern philosophers, yet his often paradoxical statements can be properly understood only within the context of his restless, almost nomadic life." "Curtis Cate's new biography, written for the layperson rather than the academic, goes far towards clarifying Nietzsche's ideas and the reactions they elicited. The author does equal justice to the musical as well as philosophical influences to which Nietzsche was subjected, the subtle working of his incomparable mind, and the acute physical suffering he combated from his adolescence until his final mental collapse of January 1889." "Cutting through the academic jargon and complexities to clear away stereotypical prejudices that have accumulated around Nietzsche's name, Cate reveals a Nietzsche whose ideas continue to have prophetic relevance and incredible vibrancy today."--Jacket

Social research : a practical introduction by Bruce Curtis( Book )

9 editions published in 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 153 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Original, fresh, and relevant this is a theoretically-informed practical guide to researching social relations. The text provides a mixed methods approach that challenges historical divisions between quantitative and qualitative research. It adopts a multidisciplinary approach to social science research, drawing from areas such as sociology, social psychology, and social anthropology. Explicitly addressing the concerns of emergent researchers it provides both a 'how to' account of social research and an understanding of the main factors that contextualize research by discussing 'why do' social scientists work this way. Throughout the twelve comprehensive chapters procedural (how to) accounts and contextual (why do) issues are usefully applied to major themes and substantive questions. These key themes include research design; the practices of research and emergent researchers: beyond ontology, epistemology and methodology; the impact of technology on research; and putting the research approach in context. A superb teaching text this book will be relished by lecturers seeking an authoritative introduction to social research and by students who want an accessible, enriching text to guide and inspire them."--Publisher's website
