This moving and challenging book by Simon Charlesworth deals with the personal consequences of poverty and class and the effects of growing up as part of a poor and stigmatized group. Charlesworth examines these themes by focussing on a particular town - Rotherham - in South Yorkshire, England, and using the personal testimony of disadvantaged people who live there, acquired through recorded interviews and conversations. He applies to these life stories the interpretative tools of philosophy and social theory, drawing in particular on the work of Pierre Bourdieu and Merleau-Ponty, in order to explore the social relations and experiences of a distinct but largely ignored social group. The culture described in this book is not unique to Rotherham and Charlesworth argues that the themes and problems identified in this book will be familiar to economically powerless and politically dispossessed people everywhere.

The seven chakras allow life energy to flow into our aura and are associated with our physical, mental and emotional interactions. Healers observe that the majority of dis-ease is caused by an energy imbalance in our bodies, usually a reduced flow of pranic life-force throughout the chakras.

This fascinating book and CD provide you with a personalised, practical and direct experience of chakras and their powerful healing properties. Going far beyond a reference guide, The Chakra Experience is more like a personal tutor, explaining how to work with your chakras and access benefits such as improved health, stress reduction and spiritual development.

Featuring case studies throughout, this holistic, integrated and practical guide is your own personal chakra workshop in a book.

From the PREFACE.
Philosophy needs no Prolegomena. Experience, the experience of common life, is its beginning. And the more directly it can go back to this common ground of fact from which all philosophies draw their life, the better its chance of arriving at the universal fact which is the truth.
But philosophy now finds the testimony of experience discredited. Its endeavour is futile, unless the credit of its source is re-established. The current doctrine taught is that whatever else experience may afford to us, it cannot give us the knowledge of reality. The purpose, then, of this "Chapter of Prolegomena" is to deal with this initial obstacle to the progress of philosophy, the doctrine that we cannot know.
Short as it is, I could have wished to make it shorter. The first section, "Feeling,' contains the argument which alone justifies the publication of this book-the argument to show that the question, "Can we know reality?" is not met with an initial "No." The two subsequent sections were added because it was judged that the main argument, in defence of the possibility of the attainment of speculative truth, would be more intelligible if some slight indication were given as to the philosophy to which this argument is a preface. They are no more than sign-posts, showing the direction of future logical and metaphysical work.
This will account, in Section II., for the summary treatment of many logical questions and the apparent neglect of others. To take a single instance, it is assumed without discussion that the normal import of the logical judgment is to make an assertion as to the primary, not the ultimate, reality.
And Section III. is, I fear, still more allusive. On the subjects there hinted at, the analysis of the idea of personality, and the interdependence of the various faculties of personal experience, I hope shortly to have more to say.
I would only add one word on the use of the term "Agnosticism." I have attacked under that name the definite philosophical doctrine that we cannot know reality. But I would not be supposed to undervalue the intellectual humility which is the really vital element in the Agnostic creed, a temper accidentally associated with the doctrine that we cannot know, but, as I believe, more truly justified by the rationalist belief that we can know the length and breadth and depth and height of that which passes knowledge.

The remains of Tai Fu's lost collection Kuang-i chi ('The Great Book of Marvels') preserve three hundred short tales of encounters with the other world. This study develops a style of close reading through which those tales give access to the lives of individuals in eighth-century China. Through the eyes of a mid-century county official the picture emerges of a complex lay society, served by a mixed priesthood of ritual practitioners, whose members' lives at all levels were profoundly shaped by their perceived experience of contact with the other world. It was a society embarking on fundamental change, and this book uses the sharp historical focus of Tai Fu's collection to study the dynamics of that change. The work gracefully reveals the transition from the beliefs and institutions of early mediaeval China towards those we now recognize as modern.
