Science increasingly deals with human behavior: biology, neuroscience, genetics, psychology, evolutionary theory, and ethology all bring new insights into our actions and uncover new facts about our agency. However, what is the philosophical significance of their findings? The answer to this question varies according to one's background philosophical views. On the one hand, the dominant empiricist view contends that the sciences can in principle tell us everything there is to know about human ...

At once a memoir, a work of philosophy, a story of European immigration to Canada's dark places of the earth, and an exploration of the roots and effects of colonialism, The Wolves At Evelyn: Journeys Through a Dark Century is a stylistic and rhetorical tour de force from one of Canada's master prose stylists. Dissident communists fleeing 1920s Germany, Harold Rhenisch's grandparents imagined that British Columbia's Interior was the end of the earth—a new world where they could fulfil their dreams of the land, freed from tyrrany and from history itself. A generation later, in the wake of World War II, his father arrived, carrying many of the same ideas with him. What they found instead was a colonial culture as highly developed as Doris Lessing's Rhodesia. Rhenisch grew up at the nexus of these cultures: a Germany where Nazism simultaneously did and did not happen, a Canada in the process of shedding British colonialism for American, and a land—the Interior—that had no point of contact with any of them. With remarkable range and vision, Rhenisch turns in a bravura performance, sifting through the ashes of personal experience, family anecdotes, literature, art, history, and the land itself for clues to a great untold story, Rhenisch assembles a collage of images and ideas that becomes a whole much greater than the sum of its parts. The hidden history of a forgotten outpost of the Empire is laid open, shattering dearly held myths and exposing buried skeletons. How was the sunny, carefree Okanagan Valley fruit culture built on the back of King Leopold's Congolese slave trade? How does Margaret Atwood's garrison theory of literature reflect on Rhenisch family's hidden Nazi past? How did the Hudson's Bay Company Blanket act as both a cherished kitsch object for generations of Canadians and a tool of genocide? Alternating between light and darkness, great humour and sharp indignation, this is a disturbing, thought-provoking and important work from a masterful writer and cultural analyst.

This manuscript is one of kind, nothing has ever been written like it before, the story begins in 1941 with the first memory I can date and what I remember and explains why I grew up so completely different from the majority of other children that I went to school with. I begin in Petaluma California as a small boy and continue through the years telling of the hardships, struggles and sorrows my family and relatives faced as they worked and camped in the different orchards on Highway 99 or the 101 and barely making enough money to feed them and buy gas to the next job. Then during the winter each year Dad worked on chicken ranches or such until the spring when we would start all over again. That happened until the summer of 1949 when my family settled in Yountville California and where the story ends when I joined the Navy at age seventeen on the 18th of January 1955.

As the title suggests, Dwight is a bit of a non-conformist or as his wife called him, "A Rebel Without A Clue". He never got in any serious trouble but he liked to skate around the edge of it and occasionally his skates slipped and he fell into it. Dwight Knuth has always marched to his own drum while following a path through life lined with accomplishments, failures, joys, sorrows, and struggles. In sharing his fascinating true story that also reveals the history of his ancestors, Dwight hopes to encourage others to embrace their uniqueness and pursue happiness. Dwight begins with his misspent youth where he proclaims he was a rebel without a clue. While providing a glimpse of what it was like to live on the North Dakota prairie during the fifties, Dwight details youthful adventures that include hitchhiking across the United States at age sixteen, being jailed twice during the trip, and then riding on a freight train to return home. As his journey led him to become a Golden Glove boxer, serve in the military during the Berlin Crisis, the Cuban Missile Crisis, and Vietnam War, Dwight discloses how he faced and overcame many challenges that would later include his wife’s battle with terminal breast cancer. Through it all, Dwight teaches through example that perseverance and faith are keys to surviving and even thriving amid life’s greatest difficulties. This Dummy Pulls His Own Strings shares one man’s experiences as he learned to navigate through life and embrace every good, bad, and ugly moment in his own distinctive way.

A public hero for rescuing survivors, he slowly descends into madness as he hunts the individual he believes to be responsible for the carnage: a spectral figure known only as Drood.

Here Drood is rumoured to hold sway over a legion of brainwashed followers. But as Wilkie spirals ever further into opium addiction and jealousy of the more successful novelist, he must face a terrifying possibility: is Charles Dickens really capable of murder?
