THE MAGIC KEY TO PARENTING & GRANDPARENTING Family Dynamics thru the Enneagram Fairy Tales This book offers parents & grandparents a Forward designed to outline the new strategies for raising empowered children. It is targeted to children from 5 to 8 years of age and their caretakers and is based on the findings of the new neurosciences. Following the Forward for adults are 9 fairy tales based on the 9 enneagram personality profiles. The enneagram diagnoses the sabotaging childhood fear of the child and the inner child of the adult allowing for a greater depth of positive choices in their life. The fairy tales all point the child to their inner wisdom and encourage the imagination that leads to creativity. As the adult and the child each identify their enneagram type, family dynamics are clarified in many “ah ha” moments of their everyday interactions. The unconditional love and deep heartfelt connection sought by each of us can then be brought to the family unit. ENJOY YOUR NEW WORLD! Love & Hugs, Sandra

New in Paperback! The Masonic secrets of our founding fathers. Turning the Solomon Key is an exhilarating quest to discover the Masonic influences which George Washington brought to bear on the layout of Washington D.C. In this second book of his Key trilogy, Robert Lomas has used Masonic rituals and Washington's own diaries to uncover the symbolic reasoning behind the positioning of the White House and the Capitol, and in the process he disposes of many anti-Masonic urban myths. This exciting, and authoritative, detective story then investigates the sources of creative behavior, to reveal a hitherto unsuspected Secret Science of Masonic Astrology which underpinned Washington's actions. The builders of Washington DC knew a great secret about the human condition. In Turning the Solomon Key, scientist and Masonic expert Robert Lomas explains exactly what it was.

Report by the Committee for the Development of the Dutch Canon
Author: Commissie Ontwikkeling Nederlandse Canon
Publisher: Amsterdam University Press
Many think they know the legends behind tulipmania and the legacy of the Dutch East India Tea Company, but what basic knowledge of Dutch history and culture should be passed on to future generations? A Key to Dutch History and its resulting overview of historical highlights, assembled by a number of specialists in consultation with the Dutch general public, provides a thought-provoking and timely answer. The democratic process behind the volume is reminiscent of the way in which the Netherlands has succeeded for centuries at collective craftsmanship, and says as much about the Netherlands as does the outcome of the opinions voiced.
Understanding the Light Microscope consists of four original computer programs with an explanatory book. Author Dan Goldstein says using the programs can teach aspects of microscopy and diffraction often missed from formal courses, adding, "... what one non-mathematician has created should not be beyond the understanding of others!" The book aims to provide understanding at a level deeper than customary in existing texts and in a form accessible to microscope users, particularly biologists. It covers simple ray optics, the aberrations of "real" (thick) lenses, polarized light, and the influence of diffraction on imaging. The book can be read alone, but appreciation of its contents is greatly enhanced when used in conjunction with the programs. D J Goldstein was a Nuffield Dominion Travelling Fellow at Oxford University and a visiting Professor in Pittsburgh. He taught at the Universities of the Witwatersrand (Johannesburg, South Africa) and Sheffield (UK) while publishing research in embryology, histology, immunology, histochemistry and microscopy. Since retiring in 1989 as Reader in Anatomy at Sheffield University, he has been an independent research worker in biomedical science. Key Features * Aids insight into microscope operation and imitations * The approach is non-mathematical, yet in-depth * Enables lecture time to be replaced by learning assignments * Includes a help function for all four programs * The programs have been tried and tested by 2nd and 3rd year biomedical undergraduates
In this collection of essays, the sophistication and vibrancy of contemporary phenomenological research is documented, including both its engagement with key figures in the history of philosophy, and with critical problems defining future directions of philosophical investigations. It honors the writings of Richard Cobb-Stevens, whose work in phenomenological philosophy, analytic philosophy and the history of philosophy has served as model for generations of philosophers working between these three fields of research. The essays collected in this volume provide a unique window on the contemporary state of the art in phenomenological philosophy by leading scholars of international reputation from North America and Europe. Historical figures such as Aristotle and Hobbes are innovatively brought into dialogue with phenomenological thinking. Phenomenological thinking is brought to bear on a wide variety of problems, from the nature of artworks and photography to questions concerning consciousness and knowledge. Among the topics discussed in these specially commissioned essays: phenomenology and Aristotle; the nature of the primal ego; Hobbes and Husserl; intentionality and reference; Neo-Aristotelian ethics; Husserl and Wittgenstein; photography; the nature of artworks.
