Papers read by three German educationalists at a workshop on "Education between Quality and Equity" are included in this document. The first, by Han Leo Reimann, is entitled "Simulated Reality: The Instructional Objectives within the Framework of Pedagogical Paper Plays." This paper describes a gaming method of simulating realistic planning and decision-making situations for adults. The second paper, by Lutz-Rainer Reuter, is "Migrants' Education as a Focus of the frg Educational Policy between Quality and Equity." It outlines themes that have dominated West German educational policy since World War ii and then focuses specifically on the education of migrants and the concept of intercultural education. Finally, the third paper, by Hans Ritscher, is called "a Concept of Basic Teaching Abilities." It discusses directions in teacher training that might be useful for developing a fundamental repertoire of skills and behaviors that enhance teacher performance beyond the level of competence in a special field or educational level.

Milton's "Accomplished Eve" (4.660) : feminism in Pradise Lost by Jennifer Cerritelli( Book )

1 edition published in 1998 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Paradise Lost, John Milton dramatically changes Eve's character from the well established Renaissance stereotype to an intelligent, humble, and majestic woman. Traditionally, Eve has been condemned for causing mankind's sinful state. Yet Milton rejects such damning views and praises Eve as a heroic individual who defines the Christian doctrines of grace and redemption. In doing so, Milton puts Eve in direct opposition to the only other female in the epic poem, Sin. In this thesis, I propose that Eve and Sin have a distinct relationship: Sin represents the stale stereotypes of the prelapsarian Eve that Milton has rejected. Thus, Paradise Lost contains a surprisingly modern and feminist view of the Fall, its consequences, and the formation of salvation. Leading in the discussion of Milton's feminism are Joseph Wittreich and Diane Kelsey McColley. In Feminist Milton, Joseph Wittreich credits Milton with being an early sponsor of feminism. He refutes many critics who claim that Milton is a misogynist and asserts that any ideas of misogyny in Eden go against Milton's prelapsarian vision. Wittreich supports his theories by calling on instances in Paradise Lost where Milton gives credence to women's rationality, maturity, and the presence of these characteristics in Eve. McColley follows Wittreich's path and extols Milton as a feminist author who has endowed Eve with a sense of reason and responsibility. In particular, her book Milton's Eve explains how Milton diverged from and surpassed his predecessors' depictions of Eve. According to McColley, Milton presents an Eve as God would have made her: not only sufficient to stand, but to grow. Other critics too, such as Philip Gallagher and Barbara Lewalski, have followed with judgments of Milton as an early feminist writer. These scholars successfully denounce critics such as E.M.W. Tillyard and Stanley Fish who insist that Adam and Eve are prefallen and imperfect creatures, even before the Fall. Milton's feminist attitude takes root in the presentation of Eve as a heroic character. Although Eve falls and promotes Adam to fall, her upward and outward progression deserves much notice. After the Fall, she engages in Christ-like self-sacrifice for Adam and brings him to the notion that it is best to humble oneself before God and ask forgiveness. Eve's heroism is further pronounced at the end of Paradise Lost when she finds comfort in the fact that she will people the world and produce Mary and the Son of god, who eventually will bring about the Second Coming to gloriously destroy all evil. Through this felix culpa, Eve has assisted in the production of Christ's redemption and the new definition of Christianity. Milton alludes to this turning point in history in Eve's final heroic speech in which Eve proclaims: "By me the Promised Seed shall all restore." Perhaps Milton's Eve is best seen through her relationship to Sin, the only female character in the epic. I propose that Eve and Sin have a distinct relationship: Sin represents the stale stereotypes of the prelapsarian Eve that Milton has rejected. These seven stereotypes are as follows: Eve is prefallen, Eve is a seductive temptress, Eve is idle and lazy, Eve is vain and susceptible to flattery, Eve's downfalls are her curiosity and propensity to wander, Eve is prone to secrecy and dissembling, and Eve's fall proves that women deserve nothing but condemnation. I suggest that these harsh stereotypes reveal a feminist side of Milton, since they were expelled from his Eve and placed in Sin. Just as Satan is the perverted form of God, so is Sin the perverted form of Eve, since Sin carries all qualities of the "traditional Eve" that Milton has rejected. Through these foils, Milton denounces biased views of Eve and praises her as an intelligent, virtuous, and heroic woman. It is this bold defense of Eve that earns Milton praise as an early feminist advocate. The study of Eve and Sin's inverted relationship yields insight to their character development as well as Milton's disposition. After closely examining Paradise Lost, one can see that Milton is an advanced feminist writer in a dominantly patriarchal society. He deliberately rejects the unjust, traditional accounts of Eve. From these stereotypes, he molds Eve's foil, Sin. by means of authorial inversion, Milton has actually taken on a God-like quality: out of the evil views concerning Eve, he creates good. This goodness prevails when the integrity, maturity, intelligence, and majesty of the first woman is restored, both in her pre- and post-lapsarian states

Freedom of Religious Belief in Contemporary China : a Historical, Philosophical and Juridical Outlook by Simona Lazzerini( Book )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This thesis explores religious freedom in contemporary China through historical, philosophical and juridical perspectives. The historical analysis covers the period from the fall of the Qing dynasty (1911) to present-day China and focuses on important events such as the Maoist period, the new open policies established by Deng Xiaoping, and the religious revival started in the 1980s. A discussion of philosophy is essential in order to understand the relationship between Chinese Communist Party and religion, especially the government's view on religion and how it has changed over the years. Laws and policies can help understand the problems that religions face today and the kind of freedoms they enjoy. With regard to religion, collaboration between state and society is essential to guarantee peace, freedom and order in the PRC. The purpose of my thesis is to demonstrate that freedom of religious belief has improved since the 1980s and, today, the PRC benefits from partial religious freedom. However, China still needs to do a lot to ensure full religious freedom. Policies must be updated in order to meet people's needs and be suitable to social and religious changes. Yet religious freedom in China cannot be compared to the Western model because of the different historical, political and cultural circumstances within China. China has its own model of religious freedom that must be improved and updated. The government should grant more religious freedom and loosen or change their strict and outdated regulations to build a peaceful and secure future. My thesis is based on texts and essays of both Western and Chinese scholars, as well as newspaper articles and field research I conducted in China between 2010 and 2013

Twenty first century terrorism : comparative analysis of the internal and external root causes of terrorism : understanding al-Qaeda by Jared Daniel Taylor( )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This research examines the internal and external root causes of terrorism by providing an in depth study of al-Qaeda. After more than ten years of fighting, the war on terror the threat from al-Qaeda still remains. Al-Qaeda cells around the world have been disrupted and a majority of al-Qaeda's top leadership has been either killed or captured. Despite the death Osama bin Laden, al-Qaeda still poses a threat to the world. Al-Qaeda has evolved into a global terrorist actor. The growing appeal of its guiding Salafist ideology has swelled its ranks since 9/11. Furthermore, many of the early gains originally achieved in the war in Afghanistan have been lost. President Obama used a similar strategy as former President George W. Bush and escalated the war in Afghanistan. The additional troops sent to Afghanistan did little to achieve the desired success. Obama is now disengaging from Afghanistan and combat operations will end in 2014, yet the war on terror continues in Yemen, Somalia and throughout the world. The current debate on al-Qaeda classifies the organization in the same category as the traditional nineteenth century terrorist groups. This is wrong, dangerous and has led to counterterrorist strategies that will fail to accomplish long term security for the United States. The current War on Terror has given the U.S. two costly wars and done little to defeat terrorism. For too long the attempts to understand the motivations of al-Qaeda have focused on Western interpretations of its causes and ignored what the organization states as its motives. By understanding the internal and external causes that draw people to al-Qaeda, law enforcement, intelligence agencies, and policy makers within the government can develop better counter terrorist strategies to reduce the risk from terrorism. This research hopes to expand the knowledge of why people are drawn to al-Qaeda as well as the contributing factors that motivate the organization. This research will conduct a qualitative research by examining the ideology behind al-Qaeda as well as the external causes like U.S. foreign policy. The research will separate the causes of terrorism into three categories: 1) psychological factors, 2) religious factors, and 3) political factors. The political factors can be sub-divided into two categories. The first category will examine political Islam exploring the political objectives of the organization and how they are mixed with religion. The second sub-category will examine U.S. foreign policy in the Middle East. It will also use a qualitative case study research analyzing the formation and history of al-Qaeda to enrich the understanding of the conditions that breed terrorism. Conditions like the history of the Arab world and why it is still relevant to present day, oppression, and feelings of hopelessness that push ordinary people to commit violent acts and kill innocent people. Perceived social injustice can make people feel that killing one group of people is justified, if it changes their situation

The Intersection of Law, Culture, and Female Genital Mutilation : Contrasting the cases of Egypt and Uganda by Marie M Mekari( Book )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Approximately three million women annually undergo an ancient cultural rite of passage into womanhood called Female Genital Mutilation (FGM). This practice involves the partial or total removal of the female genitalia and in many cases results in lifelong pain and medical complications. There are cultural factors that maintain the prevalence of FGM; however, it is a harmful traditional practice that violates the human rights of women and children. Examining FGM through the lenses of human rights, cultural relativism, and law, is important to show the role that governments and practicing communities play in eliminating this practice. This historical/descriptive study and deductive research presents an in-depth analysis of two contrasting countries: Egypt, with a high prevalence of FGM, and Uganda, with a low prevalence of FGM. It draws upon statistical data in regards to education, culture, and religion to determine how these factors have an effect on the frequency of this practice. The research conducted shows that in both countries, culture is the most cited reason for the continuance of FGM. While education is a key factor towards the eradication of this practice, many other efforts, such as grassroots movements and support from local governments, must work together in order to facilitate a change in the belief system that validates FGM. Additionally, while international law provides the legal basis for national governments to pass legislation abolishing this practice, these laws alone will not have any effect in how cultural beliefs are influencing the eradication of FGM
