The debate over Evolution vs. Intelligent Design has been raging for a long time. The battle has been fought in three separate arenas: Scientific, theological, and more recently, legal. The combatants in all three arenas have seemingly ignored the other two arenas. This book examines the controversy, for the first time in one place, from all three perspectives. Sound scientific evidence is presented that calls Darwin's theory into serious question. Questions that should be raised in the academic community, but seldom are, are posed. They are fairly obvious questions. How can a person go through twenty years of formal schooling and never hear these questions posed - not once? The question begs to be asked: Why aren't these questions being raised in our schools whenever the theory of evolution is being taught? Let's talk about that. Did you know that the court rulings on the teaching of Evolution vs. Intelligent Design almost completely ignore the science behind the argument? How can that happen? This book takes a closer look at this issue as well as the larger issue of "Separation of Church and State." What role does religion play in all this? The answer might surprise you! Are our institutions - legal, educational, media and governmental - being used to enforce the agenda of a religious minority on the majority of our citizens? The answer might make you angry! Suppression of a minority by the majority is bad, but suppression of the majority by a minority is much worse - it's the stuff tyranny is made of. Come, let us reason together.

When one defines "order" as a sorting of priorities, it becomes beautifully clear as to what Foucault is doing here. With virtuoso showmanship, he weaves an intensely complex history of thought. He dips into literature, art, economics and even biology in The Order of Things, possibly one of the most significant, yet most overlooked, works of the twentieth century. Eclipsed by his later work on power and discourse, nonetheless it was The Order of Things that established Foucault's reputation as an intellectual giant. Pirouetting around the outer edge of language, Foucault unsettles the surface of literary writing. In describing the limitations of our usual taxonomies, he opens the door onto a whole new system of thought, one ripe with what he calls "exotic charm". Intellectual pyrotechnics from the master of critical thinking, this book is crucial reading for those who wish to gain insight into that odd beast called Postmodernism, and a must for any fan of Foucault.

Dr. Cathcart was born in San Antonio, Texas. He graduated from Burlingame High School and earned a degree in economics from Stanford University before enlisting in the U.S. Army in 1955. Dr. Cathcart earned his doctorate at the UCSF School of Medicine in 1961. He did his surgical internship and residency at Stanford Hospital from 1961 to 1966 and was an instructor of orthopedic surgery at Stanford from 1966 to 1967. While at Stanford he designed a prosthesis to replace the ball at the top of the femur, the upper leg bone. His design was based on his finding that the ball is ellipsoidal, rather than round, which had been assumed by earlier designers. The Cathcart Prosthesis has been implanted in more than 100,000 hips. In 1980 he relocated to San Mateo and in 1985 to Los Altos. He was a resident of Portola Valley at the time of his death. Dr. Cathcart, although trained as an orthopedic surgeon, is best known for his accomplishments in orthomolecular medicine. Nobel Prize laureate Linus Pauling coined the term "orthomolecular" to describe nutrition and preventative medicine. Dr. Cathcart believed that high doses of vitamin C, acting as a "free radical scavenger," could decrease most of the morbidity and all of the mortality resulting from viral diseases ranging from the simple cold to complex hepatitis. In the early 1970s, desperate to find a treatment for his chronic hay fever and stuffy nose, he discovered the merits of vitamin C after reading Pauling"s "Vitamin C and the Common Cold." Dr. Cathcart became fascinated with the idea that with the onset of a viral illness, the body can process increased amounts of vitamin C without causing its most common side effect, diarrhea. His research led him to develop the "Bowel Tolerance Theory of Vitamin C," a concept that the more potent the viral disease, the higher the dosage of vitamin C that can be utilized for treatment. His research resulted in a 1981 paper on titrating vitamin C to bowel tolerance, which became a landmark paper in the field, according to Sandra Goodman, Ph.D.

Do we live in basically orderly societies that occasionally erupt into violent conflict, or do we fail to perceive the constancy of violence and disorder in our societies? Cedric J. Robinson contends that our perception of political order is an illusion, maintained in part by Western political and social theorists who share a dependence on the concept of leadership as a basis for describing and prescribing social order. Robinson uses a variety of critical approaches in his analysis: he synthesizes elements of psychoanalysis, structuralism, Marxism, classical and neoclassical political philosophy, and sociology to support his case for considering Western thought on leadership to be mythological rather than rational. He then presents examples of historically developed "stateless" societies with social organizations that suggest conceptual alternatives to the ways political order has been conceived in the West. As an American Black political theorist, Robinson examines Western thought from the vantage point of a people only marginally integrated into Western institutions and intellectual traditions. His perspective on the conceptualization that structures Western thinking on the most basic levels contributes to the questioning on how our conduct, values, and even perceptions may be shaped by our symbolization.

From the author of the award-winning, best-selling novel Matterhorn, comes a brilliant nonfiction book about war In 1968, at the age of twenty-three, Karl Marlantes was dropped into the highland jungle of Vietnam, an inexperienced lieutenant in command of a platoon of forty Marines who would live or die by his decisions. Marlantes survived, but like many of his brothers in arms, he has spent the last forty years dealing with his war experience. In What It Is Like to Go to War, Marlantes takes a deeply personal and candid look at what it is like to experience the ordeal of combat, critically examining how we might better prepare our soldiers for war. Marlantes weaves riveting accounts of his combat experiences with thoughtful analysis, self-examination, and his readings—from Homer to The Mahabharata to Jung. He makes it clear just how poorly prepared our nineteen-year-old warriors are for the psychological and spiritual aspects of the journey. Just as Matterhorn is already being acclaimed as acclaimed as a classic of war literature, What It Is Like to Go to War is set to become required reading for anyone—soldier or civilian—interested in this visceral and all too essential part of the human experience.
