Patrick Pearse's role in the development of Irish nationalism remains controversial. Previous historical analysis has tended to view him as either a saint-like father of his country or a disturbing failure whose success was limited to the glorification of violence in Irish nationalism. In each case, historians have not been able to clarify adequately how Pearse, an unlikely revolutionary, came to play the pivotal role in the Easter Rising of 1916. Here Sean Farrell Moran analyzes Pearse within the context of contemporary Irish politics and culture to explain how he became the spokesman of the violent forces within the nationalist movement. Examining Pearse's psycho-social development, his speeches, poetry, and political writings, and his careers as an important Irish journalist, educator, and artist, Moran reveals that Pearse was unprepared for adulthood. Pearse sought to resolve this psychological need in a resolute act that would redeem himself; in the process, he became increasingly preoccupied with violence and death. In his personal search for psychological resolution, Pearse spoke to his time. His quest coincided with the failure of Irish artists, politicians, and republicans to win national independence. This failure led many Irish nationalists to embrace violence as the sole means for personal and national redemption. Pearse articulated his vision of redemptive violence in mythic terms - promising eternal victory - and helped to mobilize republicans for a doomed insurrection. Pearse's achievement has had a lasting impact on the course of subsequent Irish politics and continues to provide both motivation and justification to Irish republicans. At the same time, Pearse brought to Irish politics concerns that were not limited to Ireland. He was deeply concerned that modernity, in an English form, was a threat to Irish values and culture. By embracing the myth of redemptive violence over the dictates of reason and pragmatism, Patrick Pearse vocalized the Irish rejection of modernity at a critical moment in European history. Moran's book represents a major reevaluation of Pearse, the Easter Rising, and Irish republicanism. It is also an important work in European and British intellectual history, with implications for the study of political violence and terrorism

An applied guide to process and plant design by Sean Moran( Book )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

An Applied Guide to Process and Plant Design is a guide to process plant design for both students and professional engineers. The book covers plant layout and the use of spreadsheet programmes and key drawings produced by professional engineers as aids to design; subjects which are usually learned on the job rather than in education. You will learn how to produce smarter plant design through the use of computer tools, including Excel and AutoCAD, "What If Analysis", statistical tools, and Visual Basic for more complex problems. The book also includes a wealth of selection tables, covering the key aspects of professional plant design which engineering students and early-career engineers tend to find most challenging. Professor Moran draws on over 20 years' experience in process design to create an essential foundational book ideal for those who are new to process design, compliant with both professional practice and the IChemE degree accreditation guidelines
