Winner of the 2015 Social Justice Literature Award for Nonfiction Chapter Book and 2015 MEOC Middle East Book Award for Youth Non-Fiction. Journey to some of the world's conflict zones through the camera lens of photojournalist Jenny Matthews, as she captures the impact war has on children and their families.

The book features photographs with a human and environmental message from some of the world's war-torn hotspots - with a focus on children. The photographs are structured around key themes relating to children's lives and their rights. The supporting text voices Jenny's reactions to what she has seen and gives information about how children have been affected by war in specific conflicts. It also relates the background to wars and conflicts, case studies, key child-related facts, a map and website links.

This Is Philosophy
41,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Understanding philosophical ideas and arguments can be a daunting undertaking--but it doesn´t have to be. This Is Philosophy: An Introduction offers an engaging introduction to the subject that brings difficult, abstract concepts down to earth in straightforward language. Topics covered include ethics, the existence of God, free will, personal identity, philosophy of mind, epistemology, and more. While covering traditional topics, the discussion is also connected to relevant developments in nearby disciplines, such as how empirical psychology is related to virtue ethics, and neuroscience to philosophy of mind. The book is enhanced by a wealth of supplementary online materials--links to free online primary sources and reference materials, witty takes on philosophical puzzles, and a host of extras on the companion website, including notes on philosophical method, a glossary of terms, an extensive test bank, and more. With examples that are more Dave Matthews Band than Verdi, more beer than Brunello di Montalcino, the great debates of philosophy are made accessible, yet never watered down. This Is Philosophy: An Introduction not only brings philosophy to life--it will leave beginning students wanting more.
