The Truthful Art

The Truthful Art is an introduction to data reasoning and statistical and cartographical representation written for anyone who wishes to communicate effectively, including journalists, graphic designers, scientists, and business professionals. A follow-up to The Functional Art, it goes into the specifics of how to design appealing, credible, and informative infographics and data visualizations. Part 1 in The Truthful Art provides a broad introduction to statistics, written with journalists and designers in mind. Cairo avoids using jargon and formulas, focusing instead on how to manage and interpret data sets, and how to extract stories from them. In Part 2, Cairo gets down to business giving specific advice on how to use charts and maps in infographics and visualization. Readers will learn what kind of statistical charts exist and how to use them correctly; how to talk about maps, with an introduction to cartography terms such as projection, scale, and symbolization; the basics of making maps, including how to create locator maps; and the main kinds of thematic maps (choropleth, isopleth, proportional symbol, etc.) and how to use them. In Part 3, Cairo leaves the classroom and enters the real world with an in-depth look at how information graphics and visualization teams are organized at publications around the world including The New York Times, La Nación (Costa Rica),Estado de São Paulo (Brazil), and more. He also explains how to develop a successful style book for graphics using sample pages from several real style books as examples. Part 4, the last section of the book, features interviews with leading designers of charts and maps including the talented Jer Thorp, Amanda Cox, Ben Fry, and more.

God s Truthful Truths

“If ye cannot come to Me thyself, then seek ye the Truth from the him or her whom ye think art close to the Truth of Myself! Accept ye not just any man's word, for a man without Me is a blind man lost! Asking him would be absurd!

God s Truthful Truths

God s Truthful Truths

GOD is the author of this book! "Without these Truths ye will be blind! Blind to the Truth about what life is for! It is through life that one can find eternal peace and contentment in the all-knowing Truthful Truth of Me and My Only Son! Believe with all thy heart and mind and these Truths shall set you free! I am the Lord! I am thy Lord and thy Creator who sent ye forth! I am always with ye! We are the Holy Spirit which is Myself in the Father and Son! Believe in Us and live forever, believe not and be dead!" Victoria Brown is the co-author of God's Truthful Truths, dictated to her from the mouth of Almighty God! Victoria was neglected, abused and tortured at the hands of her parents and stepmother from birth until early childhood. God became her parents and protected her throughout her life to become His Commanded Messenger to record His Words of Truth! She endured the pain of rejection, criticism and isolation required to do Gods work with steadfast love and devotion. Diane Garrison, messenger and assistant co-author, is Victoria Browns daughter. She preserved and protected these Words of Truth for 30 years until God spoke to her and told her to present these Words of Truth to the whole of humanity, to be weighed with the justice scale of Higher Consciousness, of each individual's mind! These Words of Truth are being published for the Love, Honor, and Glory of Almighty God!

The Roman de la rose in its Philosophical Context

The Roman de la rose in its Philosophical Context offers a new interpretation of the long and complex medieval allegorical poem written by Guillaume de Lorris and Jean de Meun in the thirteenth century, a work that became one of the most influential works of vernacular literature in the European Middle Ages. The scope and sophistication of the poem's content, especially in Jean's continuation, has long been acknowledged, but this is the first book-length study to offer an in-depth analysis of how the Rose draws on, and engages with, medieval philosophy, in particular with the Aristotelianism that dominated universities in the thirteenth century. It considers the limitations and possibilities of approaching ideas through the medium of poetic fiction, whose lies paradoxically promise truth and whose ambiguities and self-contradiction make it hard to discern its positions. This indeterminacy allows poetry to investigate the world and the self in ways not available to texts produced in the Scholastic context of universities, especially those of the University of Paris, whose philosophical controversies in the 1270s form the backdrop against which the poem is analysed. At the heart of the Rose are the three ideas of art, nature, and ethics, which cluster around its central subject: love. While the book offers larger claims about the Rose's philosophical agenda, different chapters consider the specifics of how it draws on, and responds to, Roman poetry, twelfth-century Neoplatonism, and thirteenth-century Aristotelianism in broaching questions about desire, epistemology, human nature, the imagination, primitivism, the philosophy of art, and the ethics of money.

Radical Reform

Radical Reform

Tariq Ramadan has emerged as one of the foremost voices of reformist Islam in the West, notable for urging his fellow Muslims to participate fully in the civil life of the Western societies in which they live. In this new book, he tackles head-on the main roadblock to such participation - namely, the rulings of Islamic jurists that make Islam seem incompatible with modern, scientifically and technologically advanced, democratic societies. Ramadan argues that it is crucial to find solutions that will enable Western Muslims to remain faithful to Islamic ethics while fully living within their societies and their time. He notes that Muslim scholars often refer to the notion of ijtihad (critical and renewed reading of the foundational texts) as the only way for Muslims to take up these modern challenges. But Ramadan argues that, in practice, such readings have reached the limits of their ability to serve the faithful in the West as well as the East. In this book, he sets forwarda radical new concept of ijtihad, which puts context - including the knowledge derived from the hard and human sciences, cultures and their geographic and historical contingencies - on an equal footing with the scriptures as a source of Islamic law. This global and comprehensive approach, he says, seems to be the only way to go beyond the current limits and face up to the crisis in contemporary Islamic thought: Muslims need a contemporary global and applied ethics. Ramadan's radical proposal and the conclusions to which it leads him are bound to provoke discussion and controversy. Muslims and non-Muslims alike will have to contend with Ramadan's new idea of the very basis of Islam in the modern world.
