Predicting Islamic Ethical Work Behavior Using the Theory of Planned Behavior and Religiosity in Brunei

Nur Amali Aminnuddin

Islamic religiosity was included as Islam plays a dominant role in Brunei's society. Participants consisted of 370 Malay Muslim teachers. Structural equation modeling was used to test three proposed models. While Model 1 was based on the theory of planned behavior, it does not take into consideration the distinctive...

Köse İmam, Hocazade'yi kovdu: Asım'a ne olacak?

Ayse Cavdar
Erdoğan'ın siyasi hayatında şiirin çok önemli bir yeri var. Aldığı hatip eğitiminin de yardımıyla kürsülerden okuduğu şiirler popülaritesinin çok önemli parçasını oluşturuyor. Üzerine giydiği siyasi gömleği her kriz anında, o krizin sunduğu fırsatlar çerçevesinde değiştirse de, seçtiği şiirler içliğini değiştirmekten pek de hoşlanmadığını gösteriyor. En sık okuduğu şiirse, Mehmet Akif Ersoy'un Asım'ın Nesli adlı uzun ve tamamlanmamış manzum eserinin kısa bir bölümü. ... Erdoğan bu şiiri tesadüfen ve kulağa hoş geldiği için tekrar etmiyor imam...

A música no Convento de S. Domingos de Elvas: A leitura possível à luz da organização litúrgico-musical da Ordem dos Pregadores no século XVIII

Luís Henriques
O Convento de São Domingos de Elvas foi uma das primeiras casas da Ordem dos Pregadores em Portugal, cuja fundação data de 1267. Apesar da sua antiguidade medieval, pouco se conhece acerca da actividade litúrgico-musical desta comunidade dominicana, agravada com o desmembramento do seu património após a extinção das Ordens Religiosas em 1834. Todavia, subsistem algumas referências superficiais que permitem realizar uma leitura – embora muito incompleta por falta de fontes directas – de como...

“The Aesthetic Terrain of Settler Colonialism: Katherine Mansfield and Anton Chekhov’s Natives” (2018)

Rebecca Ruth Gould
While Anton Chekhov’s influence on Katherine Mansfield is widely acknowledged, the two writers’ settler colonial aesthetics have not been brought into systematic comparison. Yet Chekhov’s chronicle of Sakhalin Island in the Russian Far East parallels in important ways Mansfield’s near-contemporaneous account of colonial life in New Zealand. Both writers were concerned with a specific variant of the colonial situation: settler colonialism, which prioritises appropriation of land over the governance of peoples. This essay considers the...

Warfare, Ethics, Ethology: Evolutionary fundamentals for conflict and cooperation in the lineage of Man

Daniel Barreiros
The aim of this article is to set a macro-historical narrative concerning the emergence of warfare and social ethics as symplesiomorphic features in the lineage of Homo sapiens. This means that these two behavioral aspects, representative of a very selected branch in the phylogenetic tree of the Primate order, are shared by the two lineages of great African apes that diverged from a common ancestor around six million years in the past, leading to extant...

The Power of Perception: Authentic Inauthenticity of Christian Pilgrimage Sites in the Galilee

Matthew Hughes
This paper explores the intersection of empirical archaeological knowledge and historical tradition at sites in the Galilee. Tracing the accounts of the earliest pilgrims to the Holy Land, I examine how some sites in the Galilee came to be associated with Biblical events and how those associations, combined with modern archaeology, affect perceptions of these sites by modern pilgrims. I described these sites where traditional narratives are directly contested by modern archaeology as sites of...

Dissimulation in the Commedia dell'Arte of Flaminio Scala

Natalie Crohn Schmitt
Commedia dell’Arte was the most influential and widespread theatre movement in sixteenth and early seventeenth-century Europe. A considerable part of its popularity can be accounted for by its comic representation of stressful occurrences within everyday life in early modern Europe, including in its representation of the period’s widespread dissimulation, that is, the hiding of one’s true thoughts and motives by means of discretion, indirection, and outright deceit. The theatricality of Commedia dell’Arte, among other things,...

Review Photo Fiction by Francois Laruelle Prabuddha Bharata August 2017

Narasimhananda Swami
François Laruelle’s non-standard philosophy seeks to redefine the conventional modes of thinking, not just in the sphere of philosophy but also in the fields of aesthetics, religion, sociology, and other allied disciplines. In this volume, Laruelle questions the ‘fiction’ of photography by establishing that ‘photo-fiction is precisely the passage from an exemplarily modern aesthetics to a contemporary and inventive aesthetics that conjugates the arts and unfolds them onto-vectorially’ (38–9).

Formulating a Pharmacy Collection without a Prescription

Linda Galloway & Kristin Laughtin-Dunker
Librarians without a background in the health sciences were tasked with building a collection to support a new pharmacy school at a traditionally liberal arts institution. Despite little subject expertise, the team assessed current holdings, conducted a review of recommended resources, and collaborated with faculty to prioritize acquisitions to support the developing program as funds became available. The hire of a health sciences librarian provided new opportunities for assessment and for continued collecting. Altogether, this...

Review Philosophy in Colonial India ed. by Sharad Deshpande

Narasimhananda Swami
India has been the seat of deep philosophical engagements since the Vedic period. However, Indian philosophical wisdom, albeit different from Western philosophical in many respects, was not widely known to the rest of the world before colonial thinkers started their dialogue with Indian philosophy through their translations and academic exegeses. Western scholars, primarily the Indologists, analyzed Indian thought through the lens of Western thought in spite of the traditional insular approach of Indian pandits. Amidst...

Is Science Enough?: The Limits of Scientific Agriculture in Nineteenth-Century Russia within a Global Market

Susan Smith-Peter
The article argues that the spread of scientific information is not always enough to ensure the success of the production of any particular country in a global market. In particular, there were significant barriers to the introduction of improved livestock raising in nineteenth century Russia. Although agricultural societies, which were voluntary associations of Russian nobles, carried out substantive work to disseminate scientific livestock raising in Russia, global success on the wool market was transient. Understanding...
