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.

Sarah Holloway is a frustrated painter, sketching on the backs of shopping lists and sharing her studio with a washer and dryer. Abandoned by her mother, she has tried to hide her childhood wounds by healing others through art therapy. During her daughter's first two years, she has faked her way through motherhood with the help of women in her neighborhood playgroup. She hopes she has gotten the hang of it when she learns she is expecting another child. Then, a routine test reveals a mysterious mass in her unborn baby's abdomen. The sonogram awakens an old fear that her children have inherited her damage--and uncovers a secret that could end her marriage.

From two veteran educators, Steven Volk and Beth Benedix, a succinct and impassioned call to reimagine the small liberal arts college after COVID-19.

Private liberal arts colleges have struggled for decades. Now, after the COVID-19 pandemic has exposed the weaknesses in many American institutions, they are possibly facing a mortal crisis.

In The Post-Pandemic Liberal Arts College: A Manifesto for Reinvention, Volk and Benedix call for small colleges to seize this moment as an opportunity for renewal. With the rise of rankings that set peer institutions against each other, skyrocketing tuition, creeping preprofessional programs, and a race to build the splashiest new amenities for student "customers," many private liberal arts colleges have strayed from their founders' original missions. If they could shed the mantle of exclusivity, reduce costs, facilitate true social mobility, and collaborate with one other, the authors argue, they might both survive and again become just, equitable institutions that are able to transform their students' lives.

A slim, accessible book for educators, students, parents, and anyone else who's invested in the future of higher education.

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.

What do we owe each other as members of a democratic society? Public goods--from clean water to health care to schools--are under siege in the United States, with access too often restricted by class and race. Against this background, Trump's nearly empty White House symbolizes the crisis we face: our increasing abandonment of the idea of the public. At stake is not only what we owe to each other but who we are.

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

Originally published in 2004, Queer Theory, Gender Theory: An Instant Primer is a classic of LGBTQ+ literature and is taught in most gender studies programs throughout the United States. It was the first book to offer a one-stop, no-nonsense introduction to the core of postmodern theory, particularly its impact on queer and gender studies and is still powerfully relevant today.


Nationally-known gender activist Riki Wilchins combines straightforward prose with concrete examples from LGBTQ+ and feminist politics, as well as her own life, to guide the reader through the foundational ideas of Derrida, Foucault, and Judith Butler that have forever altered our understanding of bodies, sex and desire. This is that rare postmodern theory book that combines accessibility, passion, personal experience and applied politics, noting at every turn why these ideas matter and how they can affect your daily life.
