Principles of synthetic intelligence PSI : an
architecture of motivated cognition / Joscha Bach.--
Oxford: Oxford University Press, 2009.
xxv, 374p. 24cm.
ISBN : 9780195370676.
153 BAC 139843
Although computational models of cognition have become
very popular, these models are relatively limited in
their coverage of cognition - they usually only emphasize
problem solving and reasoning, or treat perception and
motivation as isolated modules. The first architecture to
cover cognition more broadly is Psi theory, developed by
Dietrich Dorner. By integrating motivation and emotion
with perception and reasoning, and including grounded
neuro-symbolic representations, Psi contributes
significantly to an integrated understanding of the mind.
It provides a conceptual framework that highlights the
relationships between perception and memory, language and
mental representation, reasoning and motivation, emotion
and cognition, autonomy and social behavior.

Future of bioethics / Howard Brody.-- Oxford: Oxford

vii, 261p. 24cm.

174.957 BRO 139838
The Future of Bioethics, Howard Brody, a physician and
scholar who dates his entry into the field in 1972, sifts
through the various issues that bioethics is now
addressing--and some that it is largely ignoring--to
chart a course for the future. Traditional bioethical
concerns such as medical care at the end of life and
research on human subjects will continue to demand
attention. Brody chooses to focus instead on less obvious
issues that will promise to stimulate new ways of
thinking. He argues for a bioethics grounded in
interdisciplinary medical humanities, including
literature, history, religion, and the social sciences.

This book successfully illuminates these embedded
experiences, questioning how to understand space as a
multiple, dynamic, intangible, yet present, form of
knowledge. Building from a history of philosopher-s and
geographer-s theories of space, Rob Shields convincingly
presents the importance of spatialization and cultural
topology in social theory and the possibilities that lies
within these theoretical tools.

In last two decades or so, the process of globalization
has stirred up societies in various ways. The new market
systems, emerged under the new global regime, have cut
across countries. This mega-transformation has made
significant impact on existing cities and towns. Across
countries, a few cities are emerging as the hubs of flow
of capital and new technologies under the ever-growing
information technologies and labor markets. In this
process, traditional centers of regional production and
distribution of goods and services are getting
reorganized or disintegrated. In this context, there is a
strong need to understand the impact of such changes on
India-s urban settlements, more so for the small cities
and towns which have remained neglected in urban research

Predisposed : liberals, conservatives, and the biology of

Predisposed presents evidence that people differ
politically not just because they grew up in different
cultures or were presented with different information.
All these factors certainly play their role but people
also differ politically because they have diverse
psychological, physiological and genetic traits. This
biologically-based, physio-cognitive machinery influences
much of what makes people who they are, including their
personalities, preferences for occupation and leisure
pursuits, tastes in art and music, strategies for child
rearing and, yes, orientations to politics. In short,
this machinery predisposes people to see and understand
the world in different ways. These predispositions are in
turn responsible for a significant portion of the
political conflict that marks human history.

Veteran journalist Arun Sinha tells the story of Nitish
Kumar s rise against the larger canvas of social and
political upheaval in Bihar, exploring the emergent
desire for equality that drove progressive movements from
late 1960s onwards and brought about a regime change by
the 1990s. After an initial association with Lalu Prasad
Yadav, Nitish Kumar rejected identity politics,
recognizing that Bihar had to transcend caste if it was
to grow.

This is a provocative new theory of political economy
explaining why the world is divided into nations with
wildly differing levels of prosperity. Based on fifteen
years of research, and answering the competing arguments
of authors ranging from Max Weber to Jeffrey Sachs and
Jared Diamond, Acemoglu and Robinson step boldly into the
territory of Francis Fukuyama and Ian Morris. They blend
economics, politics, history and current affairs to
provide a new, powerful and persuasive way of
understanding wealth and poverty. They offer a pragmatic
basis for the hope that at -critical junctures- in
history, those mired in poverty can be placed on the path
to prosperity - with important consequences for our views
on everything from the role of aid to the future of

AIDS, Ebola, SARS and Malaria - the list of deadly
infectious diseases that provoke panic and cause
devastating losses of life and economic welfare is
virtually endless. In recent years the fight against
infectious diseases has become a catalyst for cooperation
in a world that is truly united by contagion. To an
unprecedented degree, governments, international
organizations, nongovernmental organizations,
philanthropic foundations, and private sector businesses
are banding together to contain, control and, when
possible, cure infectious diseases. This book examines
the nature and politics of global cooperation to combat
infectious diseases in a world more interconnected than
at any point in history.

Why is it that terrorism has become such a central factor
in our lives despite all the efforts to eradicate it?
Ranging from early modern Europe to the contemporary
Middle East, Martin Miller reveals the foundations of
modern terrorism. The traditional notion of state
legitimacy was forever altered and terrorism became part
of a violent contest over control of state power between
officials in government and insurgents in society. In the
nineteenth and twentieth centuries terrorism evolved into
a way of seeing the world and a way of life for both
insurgents and state security forces with the two sides
drawn ever closer in their behaviour and tactics. This is
a groundbreaking history of terrorism which, for the
first time, integrates the violence of governments and

Married at twenty-three, Anitha Jayadevan was anxious
and impatient when a year passed by and she had not
conceived. Spurred by family, friends and her own sense
of inadequacy and desire to have a child of her own flesh
and blood, she decided to seek the help of
medical science. In Malicious Medicine she recounts the
story of the next eight harrowing years of her life,
where words like endometriosis, Spermatogenesis,
Varicocele, Iui And Beta Hcg became part of her
vocabulary, and visits to Infertility Clinics, Blood
Tests And Scanning in the name of Assisted Reproductive
Technology (Art) became part of her everyday existence.
It is both a cautionary report for couples seeking ART
and a moving memoir of a young woman.

devoted to a different research method, this volume
brings together the expertise and insight of a range of
established practitioners. The chapters are arranged in
three parts, devoted to three different stages of
empirical research: data collection, analysis and
evaluation. In addition to detailed step-by-step
introductions and illustrative case studies focusing on

ISBN : 9780415519144.
508.0922 HUG 139869
This book, one of the first to address this contribution,
focuses on five key figures: the English naturalist David
Attenborough, the French marine adventurer Jacques-Yves
Cousteau, the American primatologist Dian Fossey, the
Canadian scientist-broadcaster-activist David Suzuki, and
the Australian -crocodile hunter- Steve Irwin. Some of
the issues the author addresses include: What is the
changing relationship between western conservation and
celebrity? How has the spread of television helped shape
and mediate this relationship? To what extent can
celebrity conservation be seen as part of a global system
in which conservation, like celebrity, is big business?
The book critically examines the heroic status accorded
to the five figures mentioned above, taking in the
various discourses around nature, science, nation,
gender - through which they and their work have been
presented to us.

The principle of local activity explains the emergence of

argues that the principle of local activity is really
fundamental in science, and can even be identified in
quantum cosmology as symmetry breaking of local gauge
symmetries generating the complexity of matter and forces
in our universe. Applications are considered in economic,
financial, and social systems with the emergence of
equilibrium states, symmetry breaking at critical points

Ravi Venkatesan, the former Chairman of Microsoft India,
offers insider tips on how any firm can overcome the
unique challenges of the Indian market. He argues that
chaotic India is in fact an archetype for most emerging
markets, many of which present similar challenges but not
the same potential. Succeeding in India therefore becomes
a litmus test for your ability to succeed in many other
markets. If a person can win in India, he can win
everywhere. Combining his personal experience with in-
depth research and interviews with CEOs and senior
leaders at dozens of companies--including Nokia, GE, JCB,
Dell, Honeywell, Volvo, Bosch, Deere, Unilever, and
Nestle -Venkatesan shows how to tackle slowing growth,
policy uncertainty, and corruption and enable any firm to
thrive in India.

It describes how leadership processes differ across
various regions and teaches managers how to better employ
these processes in order to improve the success of their
organisations. The work moves beyond looking only at
Western ideas and explores further leadership
perspectives based on differing cultural foundations. It
considers the influences of Confucianism, Daoism, Mohism
and Legalism and also reflects the character of different
leadership styles, such as paternalistic, benevolent
transactional and transformational styles, as well as
authentic and entrepreneurial approaches.

When Indira Gandhi was brutally assassinated in 1984, she
had lived through India-s tortured liberation from the
British Empire, the bloody era of partition, and the
monumental difficulties associated with sustaining the
