Download and read online Originally Human in PDF and EPUB USA Today bestselling author Eileen Wilks’s returns to sensual world of the Lupi to explore the desires between a woman with an eternal future, and a man with a dangerous past. Available Digitally For the First Time Molly doesn't look her age. In fact, Molly never will, having already been around for centuries with no signs of wear. That's because Molly is a succubus—not demonic, but cursed. A victim rather than victimizer—and more than sympathetic to the gorgeous and naked man she finds hiding in the woods. Unlike Molly though, he has no memory of his past—only that he’s being hunted for reasons he can’t explain. Now they must both try and solve the riddle of his origin before his past—or even hers—reaches out of the darkness to destroy them. Previously published in Cravings. Includes a preview of Eileen Wilks’s Mortal Ties, coming September 2012

Download and read online Philosophical Dimensions of Human Rights in PDF and EPUB This book presents a unique collection of the most relevant perspectives in contemporary human rights philosophy. Different intellectual traditions are brought together to explore some of the core postmodern issues challenging standard justifications. Widely accessible also to non experts, contributions aim at opening new perspectives on the state of the art of the philosophy of human rights. This makes this book particularly suitable to human rights experts as well as master and doctoral students. Further, while conceived in a uniform and homogeneous way, the book is internally organized around three central themes: an introduction to theories of rights and their relation to values; a set of contributions presenting some of the most influential contemporary strategies; and finally a number of articles evaluating those empirical challenges springing from the implementation of human rights. This specific set-up of the book provides readers with a stimulating presentation of a growing and interconnecting number of problems that post-natural law theories face today. While most of the contributions are new and specifically conceived for the present occasion, the volume includes also some recently published influential essays on rights, democracy and their political implementation.

Download and read online The Future of Post human Space time in PDF and EPUB Contrary to the conventional wisdom held by many in much of human history, in this book Peter Baofu here proposes what he calls -the perspectival theory of space-time.- According to this theory, there are multiple perspectives of space and time in society, culture, the mind, and nature, all of which are subject to -the regression-progression principle- in -existential dialectics.- These perspectives exist in society, culture, the mind, and nature with good reasons, being subject to -the symmetry-asymmetry principle- in -existential dialectics- and with some being more successful and hegemonic (dominant) than others. Furthermore and more importantly in the long haul, space and time as humans have known them will end and will eventually be altered by post-humans in different forms, be they here in this universe or in multiverses, subject to -the change-constancy principle- in -existential dialectics.-"

Download and read online Hunters Predators and Prey in PDF and EPUB Inuit hunting traditions are rich in perceptions, practices and stories relating to animals and human beings. The authors examine key figures such as the raven, an animal that has a central place in Inuit culture as a creator and a trickster, and qupirruit, a category consisting of insects and other small life forms. After these non-social and inedible animals, they discuss the dog, the companion of the hunter, and the fellow hunter, the bear, considered to resemble a human being. A discussion of the renewal of whale hunting accompanies the chapters about animals considered 'prey par excellence': the caribou, the seals and the whale, symbol of the whole. By giving precedence to Inuit categories such as 'inua' (owner) and 'tarniq' (shade) over European concepts such as 'spirit 'and 'soul', the book compares and contrasts human beings and animals to provide a better understanding of human-animal relationships in a hunting society.
