McCoy examines how Greek epic, tragedy, and philosophy offer important insights into the nature of human vulnerability, especially how Greek thought extols the recognition and proper acceptance of vulnerability. Beginning with the literary works of Homer and Sophocles, she also expands her analysis to the philosophical works of Plato and Aristotle.

Vous trouverez dans ce petit livre tout ce que vous avez toujours voulu savoir à propos des mots anglais, et même des mots français, grâce à la cohabitation heureuse et fructueuse des deux langues pendant au moins trois siècles. Vous apprendrez, entre autres, que les currants d'aujourd'hui étaient les raisins de Corinthe d'hier, que la même racine indo-européenne a donné les mots science, ski, et shit, et qu'au XVIe siècle le remords mordait réellement. Bien plus qu'un simple recueil d'anecdotes, Wondering about Words répond à de nombreuses questions souvent posées, telles que : pourquoi l'anglais possède-t-il souvent deux ou trois mots pour dire la même chose ? quelle est la différence entre say, speak et tell ? d'où viennent les faux amis ? Rédigé dans un anglais simple (les mots les moins courants sont traduits entre parenthèses), Wondering about Words vous donnera un nouveau regard sur la langue anglaise. Pour faciliter les recherches, deux index alphabétiques reprennent respectivement les mots anglais et français évoqués dans l'ouvrage.

In modern liberal democracies, rights-based judicial intervention in the policy choices of elected bodies has always been controversial. For some, such judicial intervention has trivialized and impoverished democratic politics. For others judges have contributed to a dynamic and healthy dialogue between the different spheres of the constitution, removed from pressures imposed on elected representatives to respond to popular sentiment. This book provides a critical evaluation of ongoing debates surrounding the judicial role in protecting fundamental human rights, focusing in particular on legislative/executive abridgment of a core freedom in western society – namely, liberty of expression. A range of types of expression are considered, including expression related to electoral processes, political expression in general and sexually explicit forms of expression.

Voici "un livre pionnier qui a bien su montrer toutes les facettes du mouvement des femmes tunisiennes et par là même des femmes arabes dans ce qu'il a de plus révolutionnaire pour la société, un rôle qui est apparu de manière encore plus évidente lors de la révolution tunisienne de 2011" (Georges Corm). L'auteure nous dévoile la vie intérieure déchirante d'une jeune femme libanaise au cours d'une année passée en Tunisie. Aux heures tragiques d'aujourd'hui, ce récit nous apprend que, du côté des femmes arabes, une révolution en sommeil attend toujours et encore son heure.

The focus of this book is on building on current liberal understandings of democratic education as espoused in the ideas of SeylaBenhabib, Eamonnn Callan, Martha Nussbaum, Iris Marion Young and Amy Gutmann, and then examines its implications for pedagogical encounters, more specifically teaching and learning. In other words, pedagogical encounters premised on the idea of iterations (talking back) and reasonable and compassionate action are not enough to engender forms of human engagement that can open up new possibilities and perspectives. Drawing on the works of poststructuralist theorists, in particular the seminal thoughts of Jacques Derrida, Jacques Rancière, Giorgio Agamben, Jacques Lacan, Stanley Cavell, Maxine Greene, Giles Deleuze and Felix Guattari, and Judith Butler, it is argued that a democratic education in becoming has the potential to rupture pedagogical encounters towards new beginnings on the basis that teachers and students can never know with certainty and completeness. Consequently, it is argued that teaching and learning ought to be associated with pedagogical activities in the making, more specifically a pedagogy out of bounds, in terms of which speech and action would remain positively free, sceptically critical, and responsibly vigilant – a matter of making teaching and learning more authentic so that students and teachers are provoked to see things as they could be otherwise through an enhanced form of ethical and political imagination. It is through pedagogical encounters out of bounds that relations between teachers and students stand a better chance of dealing with the strangeness and mysteries of unexpected, unfamiliar, and improbable action.
