On Our Minds

How Evolutionary Psychology Is Reshaping the Nature versus Nurture Debate

There is no question more fundamental to human existence than that posed by the nature-versus-nurture debate. For much of the past century, it was widely believed that there was no essential human nature and that people could be educated or socialized to thrive in almost any imaginable culture. Today, that orthodoxy is being directly and forcefully challenged by a new science of the mind: evolutionary psychology. Like the theory of evolution itself, the implications of evolutionary psychology are provocative and unsettling. Rather than viewing the human mind as a mysterious black box or a blank slate, evolutionary psychologists see it as a physical organ that has evolved to process certain types of information in certain ways that enables us to thrive only in certain types of cultures. In On Our Minds, Eric M. Gander examines all sides of the public debate between evolutionary psychologists and their critics. Paying particularly close attention to the popular science writings of Steven Pinker, Edward O. Wilson, Richard Dawkins, and Stephen Jay Gould, Gander traces the history of the controversy, succinctly summarizes the claims and theories of the evolutionary psychologists, dissects the various arguments deployed by each side, and considers in detail the far-reaching ramifications—social, cultural, and political—of this debate. Gander's lucid and highly readable account concludes that evolutionary psychology now holds the potential to answer our oldest and most profound moral and philosophical questions, fundamentally changing our self–perception as a species. -- Boguslaw Pawlowski

Filsafat Pendidikan Akhlak

Kenapa harus menamakan buku ini “filsafat”, karena isinya lebih dominan berupa essay-essay filsafat. Kenapa tidak menamakannya akhlak bukan karakater, karena istilah akhlak lebih umum yang mencakup etika, moral, adab, dan juga karakter. Selain itu, kata akhlak adalah khas nomenklatur Islam. Filsafat Pendidikan Akhlak dalam buku ini berupaya berteori secara filosofis tentang pendidikan akhlak. Buku ini juga tetap memperhatikan teori-teori terapan karena pendidikan akhlak haruslah bersifat aplikatif. Salah satu bab dari buku ini lebih banyak membahas tentang ilmu pendidikan akhlak. Walaupun buku Filsafat Pendidikan Akhlak, tidak berarti absen membahas Ilmu Pendidikan Akhlak. Ketika Ilmu Pendidikan Akhlak dikemukakan, tujuannya untuk membantu memahami Filsafat Pendidikan Akhlak.

Rahasia Nikmatnya Menghafal Al-Quran

Siapa pun Anda, Anda adalah penghafal Al-Quran Siang itu, Juni 2002, hari pertama ia menghafal Al-Quran. Ia sangat gelisah karena tak bisa-bisa menghafal Surah Al-Naba. Namun, pada hari-hari berikutnya kemudahan Al-Quran seakan terus menyambutnya. Hingga pagi itu, hari ke-56, ia khatamkan seluruh hafalan Al-Quran. Rasa syukur meliputi dirinya. Ia saksikan matahari Dhuha, pepohonan dan dedaunan seakan mengalungkan bunga kepada dirinya. Ialah Deden M. Makhyaruddin. Dalam buku ini, ia menjelaskan bagaimana menghafal Al-Quran menjadi berkualitas dan berkarakter, bukan sekadar mudah, tetapi menjadi kenikmatan tersendiri saat melakukannya. Menghafal tak mesti terburu-buru, karena Al-Quran adalah hidangan terlezat untuk dinikmati sepanjang hayat. Dan, berapa pun ayat dan surah yang Anda hafal, hafalan ini perlu dijaga, dinikmati, dan lebih baik ditambah. [Mizan, Noura Books, Nourabooks, Ibadah, Kitab Suci, Al-Quran, Islam, Indonesia]

Penulis, sebagai penghafal Al-Quran atau, paling tidak, pernah menghafal Al-
Quran hingga khatam dan Juara 1 internasional, bahkan malu bila disebut hafiz
Al-Quran. Sebab, hifzh Al-Quran itu, sebagaimana dikemukakan Ibn Al-Mubârak,
bukan sekadar hafal, apalagi juara, tetapi juga mengamalkannya. Sebaliknya,
bagi yang belum hafal Al-Quran, hindari memberikan penilaian buruk terhadap
penghafal Al-Quran yang tampak tidak mengamalkan, karena penilaian buruk itu

Grizzly Fond

Chiefdom Dominion: Epitome

Bomber’s Saphie. Die! Or perhaps live in a steel dungeon. Your fate is high mastered. Big Donkey Frog Alien, Green Turtle Droid, and Strong Hollow Space Science – all provided at your standard retail. It is 2250 and one month since the welcoming banquet for Agent Jetmond Thadius Sky, the first publicized Mooredian alien to visit Earth. Je is a “quad core mutant” descended from Atlanteans, with titanium-reinforced bones, a turtlelike droid companion on his back, and the equivalent of nuclear fusion reactors in his body. Agent Sky is traveling through time and space in an attempt to prod humanity into transforming into creating a passive civilization. Sky is under the direction of the Hoodia, an extraterrestrial reptilian race. He is also an “operant swine,” one of several chosen by aliens to accelerate humanity’s development into a peaceful, responsible civilization. The scheme—carried out for millennia under the guise of computer-generated angels, spirit possession, and messiahs—is being directed by the extraterrestrial reptilian race called the Hoodia. When Jet realizes it’s all part of a gigantic bet the Hoodia have placed with the Interstellar Gambling Commission, he loses confidence in their good intentions. When Sky discovers the Hoodia may not be who they proclaim to be, he captains his own ship on a quest to challenge their control over mankind’s destiny. Jet partners with Selector—an elite secret society with a religious-based master plan to repopulate the Earth with dangerous wildlife that will prey on interloping ETs—as well as above-classified government agency Ultra. Much of the antics, including Jet's delving into the past of a Rat Pack–esque bunch of roguish entertainers called the Snake Squad, seem like recruiting/hazing rituals indulged by these shadowy cabals. Finally, Jet voyages through a stargate to the 1980s and onward to the pristine wilderness planet of Aracelle to harvest hundreds of ferocious grizzly bears and wolves to fight for the future, also uniting several space-going races in battles against compromised solar system installations. He likewise tries to rescue his girlfriend from pseudo-angel captivity. Jet leads a ferocious battle for the future, and seeks to unite several races. As Sky contemplates the validity of his mission and grasps he could inadvertently draw the United States and Earth into an intergalactic war, he realizes his adventure is far from over and, that in the end, he will either be a hero or a failure. In this continuing science fiction tale, a quad core mutant with super powers embarks on a dangerous journey to stop an extraterrestrial race from controlling humanity’s destiny forever. It’s as busy as an out-of-control pinball machine, and after all the wild detours and ricochets, the ending has Jet seemingly reconsidering his mission. There is ample evidence, however, that his weird adventure has not at all ended. From here on out you set your own code. Then your code is written. But if you want to survive, we'll encode it for you. Grizzly of mind. Jet's a jynx addict. A fast-paced crazy careening space time adventure. May your HEMTTs travel long distances with very little bio diesel and your wife have majestic tits. Start with high adventure. After go back to where it all began in the trilogy. The conclusion rates high in originality.
