In welcome contrast, this intermediate-level textbook reinforces the first-year lessons and enables students to read Plato's Symposiumone of the most engaging works in Attic Greek, the dialect taught in most first-year courses. To meet the needs of students who are reading extended passages of challenging Greek for the first time, Louise Pratt, a classical scholar with more than twenty years' teaching experience, has lightly condensed the early readings, supplementing them with review exercises and new vocabulary. She includes the remaining portion of the dialogue in its entirety to give students the experience of reading Plato's imaginative dialogue in all its richness.

Love on the Internet: A framework for understanding Eros online. N2 - The purpose of this paper is to develop a conceptual framework to aid in understanding and evaluating love online. The framework maps the territory of online love by identifying important issues and providing a mechanism for combining relevant theoretical perspectives.
How do people change their own feelings and the feelings of their colleagues? Led by IWP, the project is a collaborative venture — involving investigators from the Universities of Sheffield, Oxford, Manchester, Reading, and Wolverhampton — that aims to answer fundamental and applied questions concerning the nature and effects of emotion regulation. At its worst, dysfunctional emotion regulation has been implicated in various mental health and societal problems such as bipolar disorder and interpersonal conflict, and at its best, effective emotion regulation has the potential to facilitate high-level performance in significant situations such as competitive sports and safety-critical work. The studies involve a wide range of participants and methods, including fMRI neuroimaging, experiments, time-sampling, field studies, surveys, case studies, and interventions.
All of European literature springs from a fight. Sex, though subject to the pressures of legal sanction, social judgment, unconscious drives, and contradictory desires, holds out the prospect of discovering new ways of being and of being in the world. Negativity for us refers to the psychic and social incoherences and divisions, conscious and unconscious alike, that trouble any totality or fixity of identity.

Employing Plato, Levinas, Hannah Arendt, Iris Murdoch, Anne Carson, and representatives of Continental philosophy and feminist theory, Eros for the Other constructs an original argument for the interdependence of truth, ethics, and pluralism. Through dialogues with Western thought and its critics an original vision emerges of the way reason discerns reality, experiences beauty, and lives compassionately in the midst of the plurality of concrete, historical existence. She provides a compelling argument for a philosophical and ethical framework in which differences can be understood, valued, and ethicized.

This present day endeavour is based on discussions of the shared histories between Hong Kong and Bombay, through historical precedents such as the maritime Silk Route, which enabled the circulation of commodities such as silk, opium, porcelain and tea, to the present day flow of pirated DVDs, diamonds and rip-off second-tier electronic equipment. While this is perhaps running afoul of many contemporary copyright laws, the circulation of goods and knowledge can be seen as inevitable and necessary to furthering the development of these material commodities, and also to the building up of pirate archives.
NEAR multispectral imaging was obtained at seven wavelengths nm to characterize hemispheric and regional color properties of Eros. Whole-disk spectra are in close agreement with ground-based observations. Eros is also conspicuously deficient in small, bright, spectrally distinctive craters which are found on the other two S asteroids, Gaspra and Ida, imaged by spacecraft at close range.
