  1. The Surface Effect

    Even before we think, we use fantasy. Is fantasy the ‘mother of all media’? Does fantasy save me from myself? Are there fictions that are real? In The Surface Effect André Nusselder examines the space of fantasy between individual ‘inner life’ and social ‘outer life’. Where we assume that fantasy only operates where we float off in imaginary realms, this book shows that we are in it from the beginning.

  3. Energy Analysis for a Sustainable Future by Mario Giampietro, Kozo Mayumi and Alevgül Şorman

    The vast majority of the countries of the world are now facing an imminent energy crisis, particularly the USA, China, India, Japan and EU countries, but also developing countries having to boost their economic growth precisely when more powerful economies will prevent them from using the limited supply of fossil energy. The authors argue that it is necessary to adopt more complex protocols of accounting and analysis in order to generate robust energy scenarios and effective assessments of the quality of alternative energy sources.

  8. Seven Views of Mind

    This book examines seven different answers to the question, "What are we talking about when we talk about the mind?" It begins by considering the dualistic view, frequently taken for granted by students, that words like "belief," "anger," and "jealousy" refer to a realm quite distinct from the physical world, and notes the difficulties associated with this view as well as why many find it compelling.

  9. Current Issues in Developmental Disorders

    Cognitive development in children is a highly complex process which, while remarkably resilient, can be disrupted in a variety of ways. This volume focuses on two types of neurodevelopmental disorder: syndromic conditions such as fragile X syndrome, Down syndrome, Williams syndrome and velocardiofacial syndrome; and non-syndromic conditions including dyslexia, specific language impairment, autism spectrum disorder and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder.

  10. Metrics for Agricultural Sustainability by Marty D. Matlock

    Most authorities explain sustainable agriculture by practice, such as organic or local. Several initiatives of US producers have defined agricultural sustainability based upon impacts on the supply network, from extraction to disposal (also called outcomes metrics). The outcomes metrics of impacts for sustainable agriculture are defined by boundaries such as farm gate, factory gate, and consumer use and disposal. However, these metrics have not been well described or inventoried, resulting in confusion and misuse of information. This book clarifies this confusion, by providing an inventory of the metrics for sustainable agriculture from cradle to the farm gate, organized by media and scale.
