  • Ce volume de Transversales constitue le septième volet des travaux de spécialistes des études sur le dix-huitième siècle français et britannique. Ces chercheurs tentent de redéfinir les modes opératoires de la sociabilité pour chacune des deux nations, à partir de sources célèbres ou méconnues, et s'interrogent sur la réalité de la supériorité du modèle français de sociabilité. Le présent volume s'intéresse plus particulièrement à la représentation et à la réinvention des espaces de sociabilité à partir de sources diverses, correspondance, oeuvres littéraires, archives de sociétés, essais philosophiques, films. Il met en évidence les dimensions urbanistiques et transgressives de l'espace, sa dualité, en étant à la fois imaginaire et physique et s'interroge sur le rôle de l'être humain, acteur et spectateur. La représentation des espaces de sociabilité, telle qu'elle est abordée dans cet ouvrage, pose la question de l'autorité et de la négociation opérée par l'individu entre liberté et appartenance à un groupe socio-culturel lui-même indissociable d' une nation en devenir.
    This volume is the seventh in the Transversales series published by a group of researchers of different nationalities on the topic of sociability in France and Britain during the Enlightenment. The research focuses on the extent to which a new model of sociability emerged in these nations during this period, and the similarities and differences between the ways this model developed on each side of the Channel. The present volume examines the representation and reinvention of sociable spaces through an excavation of various sources, letters, literary works, archives of societies, philosophical essays, films. It highlights the urbanistic and transgressive aspects of space, its duality, as it is at once physical and imaginary, and it questions the role of human beings, both as actors and spectators. The representation of sociable spaces, as it is dealt with in this work, raises the issue of authority and of the negotiation enacted by the individual between freedom and the membership of a socio-cultural group that is inseparable from a nation in the making.

  • This book is made for you who have decided to consult a classical homeopath. Classical Homeopathy was discovered and developed by Samuel Hahnemann (End of 18thcentury). A unique homeopathic remedy is prescribed.

    'Before consultation' establishes the central notion of constitution. Good health is a perfect synonym of a balanced constitution, whereas an unbalanced one leaves the door open to illness. The unique homeopathic remedy restores the balance by giving the individual the equivalent energy.

    'During consultation' explains the state of mind needed to go through consultation, to be as productive as possible. It is a singular living process.

    'After consultation' establishes the importance of the follow up in the homeopathic process. Just because a remedy has been given, this doesn't mean it is all over... things may only be starting!

    Numerous real life case studies substantiate the development of a homeopathic pedagogy. At the end of this guide you will find useful guidelines and practical factsheets for collecting the most important original and specific signs.

  • From new apps on our cellphone to car-sharing, from the invasion of drones to the reorganization of production lines, from tweets to digital tablets and procreation methods, from genetic manipulations to nanotechnologies, innovation is everywhere.
    It has penetrated and turned upside-down all the economic, social, cultural and political sectors.
    Nothing escapes it. Nothing can survive without it. Permanent innovation, that headlong search for the new, is the originality of our period.
    What world are we living in?
    How can we find our way in a profusion like this?
    How can we evaluate the meaning and usefulness of this general and growing agitation of our societies?
    What universe is being prepared?
    For three years, at regular morning sessions, we invited the most diverse personalities: heads of major groups and startup creators, scientists and philosophers, elected officials and physicians, foreign and French experts in many fields. They tackled every subject: the energy and digital transitions, the biological revolution, green mobility, new towns, those consumers who have become actors.
    Everything moves! Montaigne was right: "Our world eternally turns around.'
    Here is a modest contribution to the portrait of our modernity.

  • The European continent has never been more important to the future of the global economy. The role of the European Union is now being overshadowed by seemingly existential threats. Europe is changing, and changing quickly.

    The global economy is also changing, and is doing so more quickly than at any other time in history. Companies are changing the way in which they do business, and the way in which they define business. What is success? How do we measure business performance in the new global economy?

    The transition from old economic models to a new business paradigm creates environmental, social, and societal issues. Seeing companies through the challenges ahead will require strong leadership, exceptional vision, and talent. This book sets out the views of five women who match this description.

    While women are still underrepresented in senior management positions, these women have succeeded as business leaders. Does the uniqueness of the female experience affect their vision of the economy? What can their careers and their companies tell us about business performance?

    Perhaps most importantly - for Europe, for these women, for our economy as a whole - what comes next?

  • Canada is one of the most diverse nations in the world. As counsellors increasingly deal with people from many different cultures and backgrounds, there is a need to shift from Eurocentric counselling theories and methods towards an approach that recognizes diversity and new world perspectives.

    Bringing a fresh Canadian outlook to the field of multicultural counselling, this collection provides valuable information about many cultural groups in Canada with practical perspectives on subjects such as treating Muslim clients, the specific needs of Indo-Canadians, the role of traditional healing methods in Aboriginal cultures, and helping immigrant children cope with acculturation in the school system. Fully revised and updated, the second edition of Diversity, Culture and Counselling also includes brand-new topics on dealing with refugee trauma, working with people with disabilities, practicing yoga therapy, and harnessing the power of storytelling.
