OUTLINE OF SET THEORY (P)

OUTLINE OF SET THEORY (P)
$11.95
A problem-oriented introduction to set theory, this volume is intended for undergraduate courses in which students work on projects in groups and present their solutions to the class. With all necessary assistance from the instructor, students complete their weekly assignments, write short papers for their classmates, and lecture on their results. This method offers a deeper understanding of the material, as well as a clearer view of what it means to do mathematics.
An Outline of Set Theory is organized into three parts: the first presents definitions and statements of problems, the second offers suggestions for their solutions, and the third contains complete solutions. Topics include standard undergraduate set theory, as well as considerations of nonstandard analysis, large cardinals, and Goodstein's theorem. Drawn from the author's practical experience as Professor of Mathematics at Smith College, this text offers a novel and effective approach to teaching and learning the fundamentals of set theory.

The graphic-novel adaptation of Octavia E. Butler's groundbreaking dystopian novel, Parable of the Sower, the follow-up to Kindred, a #1 New York Times bestseller

In this graphic-novel adaptation of Octavia E. Butler's Parable of the Sower by Damian Duffy and John Jennings, the award-winning team behind Kindred: A Graphic Novel Adaptation, the author portrays a searing vision of America's future. In the year 2024, the country is marred by unattended environmental and economic crises that lead to social chaos. Lauren Olamina, a preacher's daughter living in Los Angeles, is protected from danger by the walls of her gated community. However, in a night of fire and death, what begins as a fight for survival soon leads to something much more: a startling vision of human destiny . . . and the birth of a new faith.

Without hope, resistance has no objective. The media is saturated with uncareful language. In poetry, we find precision, peculiarity, and potential.

Poems strive less for answers than enliven our questions. The poets in Poems of Resistance, Poems of Hope, take up these questions with an eye for what’s possible. These poems break open the human spirit, and remind us that through language, community, and art, the endeavor for empathy is not lost. Resistance and hope are alive, in the world, and on the page.

Poets included:

Joy Harjo, Jericho Brown, Yusef Komunyakaa, Louise Gluck, Richard Blanco, Arthur Sze, Ada Limón, Eve. L Ewing, Camonghne Felix, José Olivarez, Morgan Parker, Ariana Reines, Hanif Abdurraqib, Jake Skeets, and many more.

The contributors of this anthology make up a wide spectrum of South Africans: black, white, men and women, established and budding who write in either English or Afrikaans. Among these are writers who began their careers in the fifties (George Weideman), to those who were active in the black consciousness period of the seventies (Achmat Dangor, Chris van Wyk, Maropodi Mapalakanye) through to writers who first appeared in print in the eighties and nineties (Rayda Jacobs, Finuala Dowling, Zachariah Raphola, Roshila Nair, Roy Blumenthal, Allan Kolski Horwitz).

While many of the writers in this anthology have established themselves as poets, novelists, dramatists and oral storytellers, they all choose the short story as another means of expressing a diverse South Africa of rural and urban life, white suburbia, black township, childhood, love, hate, reconciliation, the grim as well as the funny that make up the tapestry of a country as it used to be and as it is today.

For over 350 years, Quakers (members of the Religious Society of Friends) have offered unapologetic prophetic witness to the formation of public policy and to scholarly discourse in political science and economics. This volume offers 18 new essays on aspects of that engagement, with topics including: - Religion as not just a private commitment but also a public witness. - Explorations of the moral dimensions of economic and political life. - Exemplary thought and practice in the lives of individual Quakers. - The blend of service, advocacy, and activism experienced by Friends. - The role of faith in defining and building a just social order. - The efforts of Quaker organizations and movements to bring about political and economic reforms. - Visions of constructive and compassionate ways to address global challenges and crises. The combination of essays and queries is designed to make the book serviceable within classroom and discussion settings and useful to scholars crossing disciplinary boundaries. "Most people associate Quakers with peace; fewer know the breadth of how we as Friends have practiced our faith from an economic perspective. Simplicity and integrity, of course; but this important volume--Quakers, Politics, and Economics--offers a deeper and more nuanced understanding of the historical, intellectual, environmental, political and spiritual wholeness of economic life. As we confront the cultural and social shifts of our global society that hungers for peace and justice, the economic choices we make in public policy will have significant impact on the welfare of the planet and people throughout the world. This eclectic collection of essays offers the reader material for both thoughtful discussion and spiritual reflection." Diane Randall, Executive Secretary Friends Committee on National Legislation
