GeneralitiesofDistinction bridges the gap between theory and practice. VanSciver has lived the public education experience for more than six decades as a student, teacher, father, principal, director, superintendent, and professor. That meaningful insight has shaped his perspective on topics such as accountability, the achievement gap, ethics, special education, teacher evaluation, and politics, matters he tackles with a deep richness in this thoughtful look at our nation’s education system. Including scenarios depicting real situations relating to the content, this book exposes the difference between what should be and what is.
'This book is not an encyclopaedic survey of the most influential or important sociological theories of the 20th century; nor is it an institutional history of sociological theory; it is not a textbook, a distillation of the accumulated knowledge of a particular discipline; nor is it a crib, a set of ready-made and easily-remembered answers to imagined examination questions. It is more of a reader's guide, a series of hints and suggestions for those who, whether students or teachers, believe that sociology is a profession and a discipline but also something more...' - Charles Turner in the introduction to 'Investigating Sociological Theory' This is an accessible, enlivening introductory book that provides a shot in the arm for all those who maintain the relevance of sociology for understanding the modern world. It will inspire discussion in classes, and provide teachers with an opportunity to discuss the big questions in theory, history, social order and social change. Turner provides a wealth of concrete examples which demonstrate what a sociological perspective can do to unpack and illuminate everyday life. The book allows students to understand sociological theory from the inside. It moves effortlessly beyond the mere parade of great names and core ideas to introduce concepts that can be used to understand the social world in which we live, where this world has come from and where it might be heading. Original, informed, and deftly written with the needs of students in mind this book is an antidote to arid theorising and the dull recitation of the grand sociological tradition.

For many philosophers, modern philosophy begins in 1879 with the publication of Frege's Begriffsschrift, in which Frege presents the first truly modern logic in his symbolic language, Begriffsschrift, or concept-script. Macbeth's book, the first full-length study of this language, offers a highly original new reading of Frege's logic based directly on Frege's own two-dimensional notation and his various writings about logic.
This book provides a philosophical analysis of each objective of political science: the pursuit of knowledge, involvement in a discourse about politics, moral evaluation of political concepts, and the resolution of practical, political problems. The author presents a synthesis between politics as a scientific discipline and a philosophical one; he clarifies the debate about its scientific status and methodologies. This book will serve well as an introductory political science text because of its interdisciplinary nature.
