In this short presentation the author delivers some hard-hitting blows to religious and spiritual beliefs, and this includes the belief in Darwin's Theory of Evolution as a secular religion embraced by mainstream science and Atheists alike. Many readers are going to take issue with the information presented in this book, particularly if they are wrapped up in any religious or spritual belief system or ideology. Don't let the size of the volume deceive you as this book has material enough to rock your perceptual world to its core. Although this is the second volume of the Beyond Second Cognition series of books, it can be read standalone for those who are unacquainted with the Bealls' work. This book is nothing if not controversial in its content, and it has the powerful potential to leave the reader very psychologically disconcerted. Yet, if the reader can take the information provided in this book and use it as a launching point for their cognitive advancement, the road that opens before them is pregnant with unlimited possibilities.

Dr. Darrel Ray, psychologist and lifelong student of religion, discusses religious infection from the inside out. How does guilt play into religious infection? Why is sexual control so important to so many religions? What causes the anxiety and neuroticism around death and dying? How does religion inject itself into so many areas of life, culture, and politics? The author explores this and much more in his book The God Virus: How Religion Infects Our Lives and Culture. This second-generation book takes the reader several steps beyond previous offerings and into the realm of the personal and emotional mechanisms that affect anyone who lives in a culture steeped in religion. Examples are used that anyone can relate to and the author gives real-world guidance in how to deal with and respond to people who are religious in our families, and among our friends and coworkers.

Design critic Rick Poynor explores the thinking behind contemporary visual culture - intriguing and fascinating appraisal. In the twenty-first century, commerce and culture are ever more closely entwined. This new collection of essays by design critic Rick Poynor takes a searching look at visual culture to discover the reality beneath the ultra-seductive surfaces. Poynor explores the thinking behind the emerging resistance to commercial rhetoric among designers, and offers critical insights into the changing dialogue between advertising and design. Other essays address the topics of visual journalism; brands as religion; the new solipsism; graphic memes; the pleasures of imperfect design; and the poverty of "cool". Around the world, many are now waking up to the dominance of huge corporations - invariably expressed by visual means. This pointed and provocative counterblast arrives at a moment when critical responses are vital if this mono-culture is to be challenged. It offers inspirational evidence of alternative ways of engaging with design, and it will appeal to any reader with a questioning interest in design, advertising, cultural studies, media studies, and the visual arts.

Diagnosis As Cultural Practice

This book is about the doing and experiencing of diagnosis in everyday life. Diagnoses are revealed as interactive negotiations rather than as the assigning of diagnostic labels. The authors demonstrate, through detailed discourse analyses, how the diagnostic process depends on power and accountability as expressed through the talk of those engaged in the diagnostic process. The authors also show that diagnostic decisions are not only made by professional experts trained in the art and science of diagnosis, but they can also be made by anyone trying to figure out the nature of everyday problems. Finally, diagnostic reasoning is found to extend beyond typical diagnostic situations, occurring in unexpected places such as written letters of recommendation and talk about the nature of communication. Together, the chapters in this book demonstrate how diagnosis is a communication practice deeply rooted in our culture. The book is interdisciplinary and unusually broad in its focus. The authors come from different experiential scholarly backgrounds. Each of them takes a different look at the impact and nature of the diagnostic process. The diagnoses discussed include autism, Alzheimer's disease, speech and language disorders, and menopause. The focus is not only on the here and now of the diagnostic interaction, but also on how diagnoses and diagnostic processes change over time. The book can serve as an undergraduate or graduate text for courses offered in various disciplines, including communication, sociology, anthropology, communication disorders, audiology, linguistics, medicine, and disability studies.

Van Huyssteen searches for an epistemology that can bring theology and science into a productive relationship. He discusses at length the very different views of Stephen Hawking and Paul Davies and asks what it might mean that we human beings seem to carry the spark of rationality that provides the key to our understanding the universe. In the end, Van Huyssteen focuses on evolutionary epistemology, which reveals the biological roots of all human rationality. Recognizing these roots, he proposes, can lead to a more comprehensive approach to human knowledge and to a graceful interdisciplinary duet between theology and the sciences.

In the tradition of M. T. Anderson’s Feed and Scott Westerfeld’s Uglies, The Mind Virus is the thrilling conclusion to the Unplugged series, which Kass Morgan, New York Times bestselling author of The 100, called “chilling and addictive.” Skylar Cruz has managed to shut down the body market that her sister Jude opened, and to create a door to allow App World citizens reentry into the Real World. But as tensions between the newly mingling people escalate, she’s not sure if it was the right decision after all. Still reeling from Kit’s betrayal, she’s not sure of anything anymore. And for those who are still in the App World, a new danger looms. A virus, set in motion by Jude’s actions, is killing off the bodies of those who remained plugged in—and no one knows how to stop it. It’s up to Skylar to once again save the worlds—and only time will tell who will be standing alongside her in the end.
