The taming of evolution : the persistence of nonevolutionary views in the study of humans by Davydd J Greenwood( )

22 editions published between 1984 and 2018 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,374 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The theory of evolution has clearly altered our views of the biological world, but in the study of human beings, evolutionary and preevolutionary views continue to coexist in a state of perpetual tension. The Taming of Evolution addresses the questions of how and why this is so. Davydd Greenwood offers a sustained critique of the nature/nurture debate, revealing the complexity of the relationship between science and ideology. He maintains that popular contemporary theories, most notably E. O. Wilson's human sociobiology and Marvin Harris's cultural materialism, represent pre-Darwinian notions overlaid by elaborate evolutionary terminology. Greenwood first details the humoral-environmental and Great Chain of Being theories that dominated Western thinking before Darwin. He systematically compares these ideas with those later influenced by Darwin's theories, illuminating the surprising continuities between them. Greenwood suggests that it would be neither difficult nor socially dangerous to develop a genuinely evolutionary understanding of human beings, so long as we realized that we could not derive political and moral standards from the study of biological processes

Creating a new public university and reviving democracy : action research in higher education by Morten Levin( )

10 editions published between 2016 and 2018 in English and Undetermined and held by 429 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Public universities are in crisis, waning in their role as central institutions within democratic societies. Denunciations are abundant, but analyses of the causes and proposals to re-create public universities are not. Based on extensive experience with Action Research-based organizational change in universities and private sector organizations, Levin and Greenwood analyze the wreckage created by neoliberal academic administrators and policymakers. The authors argue that public universities must be democratically organized to perform their educational and societal functions. The book closes by laying out Action Research processes that can transform public universities back into institutions that promote academic freedom, integrity, and democracy

Basques : EX08( )

1 edition published in 2001 in English and held by 31 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Basques live in southwestern Europe straddling the French-Spanish border. There are four traditional regions (Bizkaia, Gipuzkoa, Nafarroa, Araba) on the Spanish side and three (Lapurdi, Behe-Nafarroa, and Zuberoa) on the French side. This file consists of fifteen English and two Spanish language documents. Many are community studies dealing with the villages of Echalar, Murelaga, Elgeta, Fuenterrabia, Mondragon, Usurbil, Itziar, Excurra in northern Spain, and Sainte-Engrace in the Province of Soule in southwestern France. Most of the studies, however, relate to the Spanish Basque areas and particularly the Province of Guipúzcoa. The studies by Douglass, Heiberg, and Caro Baroja provide a general overview of the society. Many of the works lean heavily on the subject of Basque nationalism and politics, and relations with the Spanish government during the Spanish Civil War

L'anthropologie appliquée aujourd'hui : 8ème Congrès de la Sociedad Española de Antropología Aplicada, Bordeaux, 24-26 mars 2004 by Bernard Traimond( )

1 edition published in 2020 in French and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Les exigences de l'anthropologie, sa capacité d'aborder les sujets les plus variés, la précision et la qualité de ses résultats lui procurent naturellement une place dans l'aide à la décision. Cependant, cette situation suscite certaines tensions entre les connaissances académiques et les besoins pratiques, les délais nécessaires, les lieux et objets d'investigation, les diverses finalités et les différents exercices de la discipline. Les réponses à ces paradoxes doivent conduire à la mise en place de nouvelles formes de professionnalisation. Les participants à ces actes de colloque ont voulu proposer un état des lieux qui pourra permettre d'ouvrir la voie à de nouvelles enquêtes et contribuer à préciser les tâches qui s'imposent aujourd'hui à l'anthropologie
Protection of minority populations by Davydd J Greenwood( Recording )

1 edition published in 1993 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Greenwood argues that the U.S. must protect minority populations by protecting society as a whole from economic poverty. He calls for a set of minimum standards below which no member of society should be allowed to fall, for development of mechanisms by which to implement these standards, and for a person's right to appeal to the system as an "individual", if he or she chooses, rather than as statistical member of a minority group. He argues for blanket social justice in which ethnic or racial difference loses its current problematic weight and instead becomes a force for constructive progress in society. Until we can solve our own human rights problems, he says, our basis for intervening in other countries' problems is weak
