In this book the author brings together international
contributors who combine psychological and mathematical
perspectives to analyse how qualitative mathematics can
be used to create models of social and psychological
processes. Bridging the gap between the fields with an
imaginative and stimulating collection of contributed
chapters, the volume updates the current research on the
subject, which until now has been rather limited,
focusing largely on the use of statistics.

This book examines the role that the traditional
understanding of science plays in how we understand the
capitalistic system and how it informs business and
business school education. It then utilizes the
philosophy of Classical American Pragmatism to view
science in a different manner, reconceptualizing the
multiple environments in which business functions.

The Yoga of Self-Perfection represents a unique
contribution of Sri Aurobindo to the science of yoga,
which has generally in the past set its goal as the
dissolution of the powers of life and personality into
the Transcendent. Whereas the traditional paths of works,
knowledge and love all rely on a predominant part of the
personality to lead the seeker to the realization of the
Divine Consciousness, the Yoga of Self-Perfection takes
up each aspect of the human personality and brings each
to its fulfillment, while integrating their action into an
harmonius whole. The book deals with the principle of the
integral Yoga, the integral perfection, psychology of
self perfection, the perfection of the mental being, the
instruments of the spirit, purification of the lower
mentality, purification of intelligence and will,
liberation of the spirit, liberation of nature, elements
of perfection, perfection of equality, way of
equality, action of equality, power of the instruments,
soul-force and fourfold personality, the divine Shakti,
action of the divine Shakti, faith and Shakti, nature of
the supermind, and intuitive mind, gradation of the
supermind, supramental thought and knowledge etc. Sri
Aurobindo-s yoga therefore represents an integration of
the Other Wordly aims of the Indian Yogas with the stress
on perfection in the material world as taught in the

formulated in Yogacara Buddhism as a subliminal reservoir

Discordant Development reveals the complex and
contradictory ways that local people attempt to connect
to, and are disconnected by, foreign capital. Everyone
has a story to tell: whether of dispossession and
scarcity, the success of Corporate Social Responsibility,
or imperialist exploitation and corruption. Yet as
Gardner argues, what really matters in the struggles over
resources are which of these stories are heard, and the
power of those who tell them. Based around the discordant
narratives of dispossessed land owners, urban activists,
mining officials and the rural landless, Discordant
Development touches on some of the most urgent economic
and political questions of our time, including resource
ownership and scarcity, and the impact of foreign
investment and industrialization on global development.

new theories of equilibrium, and behavioral economics,
considering whether these advances represent new

scale. The second part of the book introduces the concept
of energetic metabolism of modern societies and uses
empirical results. The authors present an innovative
approach - Multi-Scale Integrated Analysis of Societal
and Ecosystem Metabolism (MuSIASEM) - capable of
characterizing the quality of alternative energy sources
in relation to both environmental constraints and socio-
economic requirements. This method allows the metabolic
pattern of a society to be described in relation to its
feasibility, when looking at biophysical factors, and
desirability, when looking at socio-economic factors.
