I was still trying to understand how people moved from point A to point B when I read the book Race, Class, and Gender, a page anthology of writings touching on topics as diverse as Marxism, feminism, critical race theory, and queer theory. Everything suddenly made sense. Ecocriticism as a literary and cultural theory significantly expanded in the s—paralleling other forms of literary and cultural theory, such as postcolonialism and critical race studies—largely due to the publication of Glotfelty and Fromm (cited under Collections of Essays), the first edited collection of essays and anthology to.

Critical Theory is presented as the highest level of knowledge acquisition because its focus is on power and social power is the basis for inequality among mankind.: Critical Theory is presented as the highest level of knowledge acquisition because its focus is on power and social power is the basis for inequality among mankind. Our faculty specialize in such theoretical areas as poetics, feminist and queer theory, Black feminist/womanist theory, postcolonial theory, new media aesthetics, biopolitics, and science studies. In addition, specialists in areas such as film, cultural studies, rhetoric and composition, folklore, and oral tradition teach courses that deal with.

Argues that new historicism is best understood, ironically, if historicized in the context of Ronald Reagan’s America and the final years of the Cold War.

The book is very clearly written and presents the material in an efficient way. It will certainly be a valuable tool to researchers, both in the field of abstract critical point theory and in the field of differential equations." Enrico Serra, Mathematical Reviews "The authors have presented extremely powerful methods in critical point theory.

Researchers have obtained many new results recently using this approach, and in most cases comparable results have not been obtained with other methods.

This book describes the methods and presents the newest by: The meaning of the term critical theory has changed in different historical contexts. From the end of World War II () through the s, the term referred to the use of critical and theoretical approaches within major disciplines of the humanities, including art.

It differs from traditional theory, which focuses only on understanding or explaining society. Critical theories aim to dig beneath the surface of social life and uncover the assumptions that keep human beings from a full and true understanding of how Author: Ashley Crossman.

The purpose of this paper is to survey developments in the field of critical point theory and its applications to differential equations that have occurred during the past 20–25 years. This is too broad a theme for a single survey and we will focus on three particular by: A point p ∈ M is a critical point of f if the diﬀerential df p: T pM−→ R is zero.

(Here T pMdenotes the tangent space of Mat p.) Morse theory arises from the recognition that the number of critical points of fis constrained by the topology of M. For instance, since Mis compact, thenFile Size: KB.

In this seminal paper that concludes that thinking must inherently be free, a number of things are discussed: the problems of the individual versus the problems of society, the dearth of critical thinking, the problem of being all or nothing with ideologies, and science being hard to separate from a historical context (which I’m not sure why soccer moms don’t get the connection between /5.

J. Lafait, in Magnetic Properties of Fine Particles, 4 THE PERCOLATION. The concept of percolation was created in the fifties [8].Random percolation was then assimilated to a second order phase transition with its power laws and universal critical scaling concept was recently added [9 – 10] and the whole could be qualitatively related to the geometry thanks to the fractal.Critical Point Theory and Its Applications presents some of the latest research in the area of critical point theory.

Researchers have obtained many new results recently using this approach, and in most cases comparable results have not been obtained with other methods.

This book describes the methods and presents the newest applications. The Tipping Point by Malcolm Gladwell is a book about how small actions at the right time, in the right place, and with the right people can create a "tipping point" for anything from a product to an idea to a trend.

Gladwell is not a sociologist, but he relies on sociological studies, and those from other disciplines within the social sciences to write articles and books that both the general Author: Ashley Crossman.
