In The Phenomenology of Moral Normativity, William H.
Smith takes up the question of morality’s legitimacy
anew, drawing contemporary moral philosophers into
conversation with the phenomenological philosophy of
Husserl, Heidegger, and Levinas. Utilizing a two-part
account of moral normativity, Smith contends that the
ground of morality itself is second-personal rooted in
the ethical demand intrinsic to other persons while the
ground for particular moral-obligations is first-
personal rooted in the subjects avowal or endorsement of
certain moral norms within a concrete historical
situation. Thus, Smith argues, phenomenological analysis
allows us to make sense of an idea that has long held
intuitive appeal, but that modern moral philosophy has
been unable to render satisfactorily: namely, that the
normative source of valid moral claims is simply other
persons and what we owe to them.

E.E. Slutsky is perhaps the Russian/Ukrainian economist
most quoted by mainstream economists today. This is the
first research monograph to examine the life and work of
the internationally-renowned economist and mathematician.
It does so from both a history of economics perspective
and a history of science perspective, bringing these
two strands together in order to demonstrate Slutskys
enduring legacy as an innovative researcher and an
influential intellectual. It also presents some of

Microfinance is defined as any activity that includes the
provision of financial services such as credit, savings,
and insurance to low income individuals which fall just
above the nationally defined poverty line, and poor
individuals which fall below that poverty line, with the
goal of creating social value. The creation of social
value includes poverty alleviation and the broader impact
of improving livelihood opportunities through the
provision of capital for micro enterprise, and insurance
and savings for risk mitigation and consumption
smoothing. A large variety of actors provide microfinance
in India, using a range of microfinance delivery methods.
The range of activities undertaken in microfinance
include group lending, individual lending, the provision
of savings and insurance, capacity building, and
agricultural business development services.

This book explores the causes and consequences of

Europe-s recession has created new challenges as market
turmoil has shaken the foundations of the twin pillars of
the new drive for European integration - political and
monetary unions. This book critically assesses the
patchwork solutions continually offered to hold the
troubled unions together. Failed political policies, from
the prodigious -Common Agricultural Policy- to ever more
common fiscal stimulus packages, are shown to have bred
less than stellar results in the past, and to have
devastating implications for future European growth.

recognizing that human relations to the environment and

how governance has shaped established approaches to

In this book, the authors ask the question whether the
impressive economic growth and development of China and
India constitute a unique model of modern economic
development, in light of new models associated with the
rise and flourishing of the modern economy in Europe,
North America and East Asia. They place China and India
in the context of the global rise and expansion of the
modern economy and bring together competing models and
frameworks on these two similar, yet contrasting,
development experiences. The book argues that
-development models- can be descriptive, explanatory and
prescriptive. In the cases of China and India, there is a
clear pattern of historical emergence of the new economic
system in the two countries.

unemployment, outsourcing, trade patterns, and developing
an international financial system that encourages
expansionary growth among all trading partners while
avoiding sovereign debt problems.

This book considers the discipline of monetary
obligations within the wider context of financial
markets. Analysing the integration of the markets from a
legal point of view provides an opportunity to highlight
the role of globalisation as the key element favoring the
circulation of rules, models, and especially the
development of new regulatory sources. The book examines
market transactions and the institutes at the root of
these transactions, including the type of legislative
sources in force and the subjects acting as legislators.
Finally, the book draws links between the two parts and
assesses the consequences of the changes at the macro-
level of regulation on the micro-level of legal
discipline of monetary obligations, particularly focusing
on the emergence and growing importance of soft law.

Bureaucracy is the dependable machinery all over the
world including India through which the states implement
development programmes. In fact, bureaucracy is an
integral part of the execution of rural development
process in India. However, the failure of bureaucracy to
enthuse people-s participation and successful
implementation led to decentralization of authority and
power to local self-governing institutions-the PRIs to
have the entire charge of developmental works. While
rural development programmes are now implemented with the
coordination of -rural bureaucracy and PRIs-, in case of
Mizoram, since PRIs not introduced (exempted from 73rd
Constitutional Amendment Act) and the existing Village
Councils not viable as PRIs.

Teachers are being encouraged to carry out research in
order to improve their effectiveness in the classroom,
but this book suggests that they also reflect on and
challenge the reductionist and technicist methods that
promote a -top down- system of education. It argues that
only by engaging in complex, critical research will
teachers rediscover their professional status, empower
their practice in the classroom and improve the quality

focuses on that challenge: using psychological theory as
a lens to highlight the positive uses of new technologies
in relationships and educational settings, and to
advocate technological learning opportunities and social
support where the misuse and abuse of ICT occurs. The

Gaussian Process Regression Analysis for Functional Data
presents nonparametric statistical methods for functional
regression analysis, specifically the methods based on a
Gaussian process prior in a functional space. The authors
focus on problems involving functional response variables
and mixed covariates of functional and scalar variables.
The remainder of the text explores advanced topics of
functional regression analysis, including novel
nonparametric statistical methods for curve prediction,
curve clustering, functional ANOVA, and functional
regression analysis of batch data, repeated curves, and
non-Gaussian data. Many flexible models based on Gaussian
processes provide efficient ways of model learning,
interpreting model structure, and carrying out inference,
particularly when dealing with large dimensional
functional data. .

This book is written for behavioral scientists who want
to consider adding R to their existing set of statistical
tools, or want to switch to R as their main computation
tool. The authors aim primarily to help practitioners of
behavioral research make the transition to R. The focus
is to provide practical advice on some of the widely-used
statistical methods in behavioral research, using a set
of notes and annotated examples. This book will also help
beginners learn more about statistics and behavioral
research. These are statistical techniques used by
psychologists who do research on human subjects, but of
course they are also relevant to researchers in others
fields that do similar kinds of research. The authors
emphasize practical data analytic skills so that they can
be quickly incorporated into readers- own research.

survey the uses of constrained optimization,. è
investigate game theory and nonlinear optimization, è
link the subject to economic reasoning, and è present the
requisite mathematics. Blending these themes makes
constrained optimization more accessible and more
valuable. It stimulates the student’s interest, quickens
the learning process, reveals connections to several
academic and professional fields, and deepens the
student’s grasp of the relevant mathematics. The book is
designed for use in courses that focus on the
applications of constrained optimization, in courses that
emphasize the theory, and in courses that link the
subject to economics.
