Men Women and Madness

The questions of what defines mental illness and what language should be used to define it are the subject of much debate in the mental health professions. Within this debate lies the question of how the diagnosis of mental illness relates to gender, and more specifically why it is that women are frequently assumed to be more prone to mental disorder than men. In Men, Women and Madness, Joan Busfield examines the complex gendered landscape of mental disorder, explaining how the very idea of mental disorder has been used to set the boundaries of rationality and reason within society, and that societally- held notions about gender have very much permeated its category constructions. Central to Busfield's argument are two claims: that mental disorder--a category whose boundaries are contested--is best understood as a territory that marks disturbances of reason and rationality; and that gender (along with other social characteristics) permeates categories of mental disorder. Busfield argues that there is no evidence either of a greater biological vulnerability of women than men to mental disorder, or that women have had to cope with more stressful events in their lives than men. Instead, Busfield suggests that cultural factors, in particular power, are the locus of the differences in mental disorder between men and women.

Gottlob Frege Basic Laws of Arithmetic

Gottlob Frege  Basic Laws of Arithmetic Author Gottlob Frege
ISBN-10 9780199281749
Release 2013-10
Pages 33
Download Link Click Here

This is the first complete English translation of Gottlob Frege's Grundgesetze der Arithmetik (originally published in two volumes, 1893 and 1903), with introduction and annotation. The importance of Frege's ideas within contemporary philosophy would be hard to exaggerate. He was, to allintents and purposes, the inventor of mathematical logic, and the influence exerted on modern philosophy of language and logic, and indeed on general epistemology, by the philosophical framework within which his technical contributions were conceived and developed has been so deep that he has astrong case to be regarded as the inventor of much of the agenda of modern analytical philosophy itself. Two of Frege's three principal books - the Begriffsschrift (1879) and Grundlagen der Arithmetik (1884) - have been available in English translation for many years, as have all the most important of his other, article-length writings. Grundgesetze was to have been the summit of Frege's life's work -a rigorous demonstration of how the fundamental laws of the classical pure mathematics of the natural and real numbers could be derived from principles which, in his view, were purely logical. A letter received from Bertrand Russell shortly before the publication of the second volume made Fregerealise that Axiom V of his system, governing identity for value-ranges, led to contradiction. But much of the main thrust of Frege's project can be salvaged. The continuing importance of the Grundgesetze lies not only in its bearing on issues in the foundations of mathematics but in its model of philosophical inquiry. Frege's ability to locate the essential questions, his integration of logical and philosophical analysis, and his rigorous approach tocriticism and argument in general are vividly in evidence in this, his most ambitious work.

Religion and Politics in Turkey

Over the last decade the once marginal extreme right of the Turkish ideological spectrum has grown in size as well as in influence and has effectively reshaped party competition in Turkey. Policy mandates and electoral bases of the rising extreme right rely on potentially explosive social cleavages in the country. One such confrontation is between the secularist and pro-Islamist forces, which has always been one of the centrepieces of modern Turkish politics. The rise of pro-Islamist electoral forces from a marginal to an undeniably imposing position in Turkish electoral politics has led many to worry that a deep-rooted schism has come to the forefront of Turkish politics. The frontline of this secularist vs pro-Islamist confrontation is quite widespread ranging from a debate around the ban of turban and headscarves in universities to religious education in the country, from Islamic principles in the economy to Turkish foreign policy towards the Middle Eastern countries. This volume was previously published as a special issue of the journal Turkish Studies.
