Summary

"Everything that comes to mind, that 'goes through our heads,' is called a thought. To think of a thing is just to be conscious of it in any way whatsoever. Second, the term is restricted by excluding whatever is directly presented; we think (or think of) only such things as we do not directly see, hear, smell, or taste."

His ideas have been influential in education and social reform. Known for his advocacy of democracy, Dewey considered two fundamental elements—schools and civil society—to be major topics needing attention and reconstruction to encourage experimental intelligence and plurality.

    Universal Holistic Philosophy -...

    Most of us have been trained by schools and universities as to what scientific and historical truths are supposed to be. However, I maintain that much of what science and history teaches us is in error because the proponents of different points of view have too narrow an understanding of the truth that reality presents.  
    This narrow point of view also limits our understanding of many issues. The theory of plate tectonics is a good example. First proposed in 1915 it took fifty years to find acceptance as scientific evidence was slowly unearthed to support it. 
    The same thing is true with the questions being asked today about subjects like the paranormal, longevity, ancient history, and much more 
    I call this new view of Reality “Universal Holistic Philosophy” (UHP) based on the concept that it takes many different pieces of information from diverse subjects and viewpoints to generate real understandings of certain phenomenon. 
    The purpose of this book is to review some of the examples I’ve experienced to show how a Universal Holistic Approach (UHP) to different topics can generate these new understandings.  
    In essence Universal Holistic Philosophy (UHP) is all about combining disparate sources of information and different perspectives to generate creative and out-of-the-box conclusions and theories which may be a lot different than conventional thinking and may shed light on answers nobody has really thought about. 
    This book explores many of these concepts and how they came about. First we examine what are the steps to learning how to think in UHP terms. Then are the cases I’ve experienced of UHP thinking from researching and writing my books.

    From Democratic Party rising star Jane Kleeb, an urgent and stirring road map showing how the Democratic Party can, and should, engage rural AmericaThe Democratic Party has lost an entire generation of rural voters. By focusing the majority of their message and resources on urban and coastal voters, Democrats have sacrificed entire regions of the country where there is more common ground and shared values than what appears on the surface.In Harvest the Vote, Jane Kleeb, chair of Nebraska’s Democratic Party and founder of Bold Nebraska, brings us a lively and sweeping argument for why the Democrats shouldn’t turn away from rural America. As a party leader and longtime activist, Kleeb speaks from experience. She’s been fighting the national party for more resources and building a grassroots movement to flex the power of a voting bloc that has long been ignored and forgotten.Kleeb persuasively argues that the hottest issues of the day can be solved hand in hand with rural people. On climate change, Kleeb shows that the vast spaces of rural America can be used to enact clean energy innovations. And issues of eminent domain and corporate overreach will galvanize unlikely alliances of family farmers, ranchers, small business owners, progressives, and tribal leaders, much as they did when she helped fight the Keystone XL pipeline. The hot-button issues of guns and abortion that the Republican Party uses to wedge voters against one another can be bridged by putting a megaphone next to issues critical to rural communities.Written with a fiery voice and commonsense solutions, Harvest the Vote is both a call to action and a much-needed balm for a highly divided nation.

    Females with ADHD learn via different channels throughout their lives that the way they believe, work, talk, connect, and behave does not line up with the desired way of being in the world. In other words, kids learn that diversity is a negative thing. And since these women are aware of their differences, they learn that they have been undesirable. It's past time to make a difference.

    A memoir of a Soviet artist who became a resistance fighter against Nazi Germany during World War II. The epic World War II battles between Nazi Germany and the Soviet Union are the subject of a vast literature, but little has been published in English on the experiences of ordinary Soviets?civilians and soldiers?who were sucked into a bitter conflict that marked their lives forever. Their struggle for survival, and their resistance to the invaders’ brutality in the occupied territories, is one of the great untold stories of the war. Written late in the author’s life, Nikolai Obryn’ba’s unforgettable, intimate memoir tells of Operation Barbarossa, during which he was taken prisoner; the horrors of SS prison camps; his escape; his war fighting behind German lines as a partisan; and the world of suffering and tragedy around him. His perceptive, uncompromising account lays bare the everyday reality of war on the Eastern Front.Praise for Red Partisan“[Obryn’ba’s] descriptions of life in a German POW camp offer unique insights into a little-discussed aspect of the Eastern Front.” —Military Review“Obryn’ba’s simple and candid yet gripping memoir presents a credible mosaic of vivid images of life in the Red Army during the harrowing first few months of war and unprecedented details about his participation in the brutal but shadowy partisan war that raged deep in the German army’s rear. A must read for those seeking a human face on this most inhuman of twentieth-century wars.” —David M. Glantz, historian of the Soviet military

So what does the father of our country have to say about the skill, tactics, and techniques that go into great leadership? Among the words of wisdom in this book: 
     
    Associate with men of good quality if you esteem your own reputation; for it is better to be alone than in bad company. 
     
    To be prepared for war is one of the most effective means of preserving peace. 
     
    It is better to offer no excuse than a bad one. 
     
    Whether discussing military tactics, life lessons, or knowledge from his forty-plus years of service to our country, George Washington is both an example of and an expert on the finer points of leadership—and this collection of quotations can inspire leaders in any sphere.
