This book shows ideas from cross-professional collaborators that offer resources for professional and research practices. Three core ideas are at the heart of this book: relational expertise, the capacity to interpret problems with others; common knowledge, which consists of knowing what matters for professionals in other practices; and relational agency, which involves using that common knowledge to take action with others. These ideas are based in cultural-historical approaches to learning and change, and give coherence to the arguments presented. This is not a recipe book; the ideas are offered as resources for reflecting on and developing professional and research practices, and the conditions in which they occur.
The Zhuangzi is a deliciously protean text: it is concerned not only with personal realization, but also (albeit incidentally) with social and political order. In many ways the Zhuangzi established a unique literary and philosophical genre of its own, and while clearly the work of many hands, it is one of the finest pieces ofliterature in the classical Chinese corpus. It employs every trope and literary device available to set off rhetorically charged flashes of insight into the most unrestrained way to live oneAEs life, free from oppressive, conventional judgments and values. The essays presented here constitute an attempt by a distinguished community of international scholars to provide a variety of exegeses of one of the Zhuangzi AEs most frequently rehearsed anecdotes, often referred to as othe Happy Fish debate.o The editors have brought together essays from the broadest possible compass of scholarship, offering interpretations that range from formal logic to alternative epistemologies to transcendental mysticism. Many were commissioned by the editors and appear for the first time. Some of them have been available in other languagesuChinese, Japanese, German, Spanishuand were translated especially for this anthology. And several older essays were chosen for the quality and variety of their arguments, formulated over years of engagement by their authors. All, however, demonstrate that the Zhuangzi as a text and as a philosophy is never one thing; indeed, it has always been and continues to be, many different things to many different people
This book deals with the universal phenomenon of 'development-induced displacement' that is at the heart of many a conflict and avoidable human suffering. The study shows how and why this happens and how it can be minimized. Hence, the book takes a critical look at the very notion of development and the doctrine of 'eminent domain' that underpins it. In India, this doctrine forms the basis of anachronistic and archaic laws, such as India's Land Acquisition Act, 1894. The book explores the two main restraints the doctrine holds, namely that land acquisition should be strictly for public purposes and that just compensation should be paid to the losers.
