Friedrich Nietzsche by Curtis Cate( Book )

20 editions published between 1999 and 2011 in English and Portuguese and held by 1,144 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

"Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, an intrepid and eccentric adventurer, transferred his passion for flying to the written word by writing several classics of aviation literature, including Southern Mail and Night Flight. Based on Saint-Exupéry's trail-blazing flights for the French airmail service over the Sahara and, later, the Andes, these two novels evoke the tragic courage and nobility of the airborne pioneers who took enormous risks, flying in open cock pits in planes that were often fragile and unstable"--Page 4 of cover

Giving voice versus gate-keeping : ethics and complexities in qualitative research collaborations by Curtis Cate( )

1 edition published in 2018 in English and held by 36 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This case study discusses the potential for conflict within qualitative research collaborations. It is particularly focused on collaborations with community organizations, and on the ethical principle of respect--that individuals should be treated as autonomous agents, yet those with diminished autonomy must be protected. Much of the author's research has been on sensitive topics, including self-harm and sexual abuse. Conducting research with young women who have experienced these entails a number of challenges, including access, recruitment, the development of trust, and managing potential vulnerability. However, participants frequently report benefits from participation, even when distress is experienced. Although collaborating with service providers with which potential research participants engage may reduce some of these difficulties, other tensions frequently arise. Furthermore, research on sensitive topics and/or with vulnerable people poses specific ethical difficulties. These include tensions between researcher and participant needs, such as conveying the possibility of distress while not discouraging participation. Service providers are often aware of some of these possible issues, and may take on a gate-keeper role through a desire to protect their clients. In so doing, the autonomy of potential participants is diminished. Thus, the development of trust on the part of both collaborating services and participants is key to the opening of research spaces. The challenges of complex and competing needs in research collaborations will be examined through the use of a specific research example
