Human Nature - Mark Ray Schmidt
Call Number: BD 450 .H858 1999
ISBN: 0737700726
Publication Date: 1999-04-01
Each essay or fiction excerpt is prefaced by a brief summary of the theme (rather than just the content) of the work; open-ended questions printed before the essay invite reflection on the philosophies being extolled; and often divergent arguments appear back-to-back for easy comparison. Especially impressive is the expansiveness of the editor's philosophical net. Science, psychology, religion, and sociology blend effortlessly to share credible theories worth much discussion and contemplation. Renowned thinkers such as Freud, Pascal, Rousseau, Sartre, Darwin, and even Apostle Paul offer not only divergent assessments of human behavior, gender roles, and socialization but also impressively deep explorations for essays so brief. Sections from this book will provide useful curriculum support in many disciplines.

Death came;instantly to Imam Luqman, four FBI agents fired semiautomatic rifles at him from a few feet away. Another sixty officers surrounded then building on that October morning, the culmination of a two-year undercover investigation that had infiltrated; the imam's Detroit mosque. The FBI quickly claimed that Luqman Abdullah was "the leader of an domestic terrorist group." And yet, caught on tape, he had refused to help "do something" violent, it might injure innocents, and no terrorism charges were ever lodged against him. Jameel Scott thought he was exercising his rights when he went to challenge an Israeli official's lecture at Manchester University. But the teenager's presence at the protest with fellow socialists made him the subject of police surveillance for the next two years, Counterterrorism agents visited his parents, his relatives his school. They asked him for activists' names and told him not to attend demonstrations. They called his mother and told her to move the family to another neighborhood. Although he doesn't identify as Muslim, Jameel had become another face of the presumed homegrown terrorist.The new front in the War on Terror is the "homegrown enemy," domestic terrorists who have become the focus of sprawling counterterrorism structures of policing and surveillance in the United States and across Europe. Domestic surveillance has mushroomed--at least 100,000 Muslims in America have been secretly under scrutiny. British police compiled a secret suspect list of more than 8,000 al-Qaeda "sympathizers," and in another operation included almost 300 children fifteen and under among the potential extremists investigated. MI5 doubled in size in just five years.
