Grunnlaget for barnehagepedagogisk arbeid ligger i å observere og tolke det vi ser barn gjør og å lytte til hva barn sier gjennom samtale med dem. "Observasjon og intervju i barnehagen" er en innføringsbok i observasjon som oppmerksom iakttagelse, i intervju, samtale, praksisfortellinger samt andre metoder.
Den er særlig egnet for barnehageansatte og studenter i barnehagelærerutdanningen, men passer også for andre som arbeider med barn og unge og som er opptatt av barns medvirkning. Den fjerde utgaven er revidert i forhold til de siste endringene i lov og rammeplaner. Med økt fokus på kvalitet i barnehagen stilles det større krav til barnehagelærerne, også i forhold til observasjon og intervju. Derfor blir også nyere litteratur som drøfter observatørrollen trukket inn. Dette er en bok barnehagelæreren tar med seg ut i praksis etter endt utdanning, og har stor glede og nytte av som profesjonsutøver.
The philosophical problem of identity and the related problem of change go back to the ancient Greek philosophers and fascinated later figures including Leibniz, Locke, and Hume. Heraclitus argued that one could not swim in the same river twice because new waters were ever flowing in.
When is a river not the same river? If one removes one plank at a time when is a ship no longer a ship? What is the basic nature of identity and persistence? In this book, Andre Gallois introduces and assesses the philosophical puzzles posed by things persisting through time. Beginning with essential historical background to the problem he explores the following key topics and debates: * mereology and identity, including arguments from 'Leibniz's Law' * the constitution view of identity * the 'relative identity' argument concerning identity * temporary identity * four-dimensionalism, counterpart and multiple counterpart theory * supervenience * the problem of temporary intrinsics * the necessity of identity * Indeterminate identity * presentism * criteria of identity * conventionalism about identity.
Including chapter summaries, annotated further reading and a glossary, this book is essential reading for anyone seeking a clear and informative introduction to and assessment of the metaphysics of identity.

The Irish famine that began in 1845 was one of the nineteenth century's greatest disasters. By its end, the island's population of eight million had shrunk by a third through starvation, disease and emigration. This is a brilliant, compassionate retelling of that awful story for a new generation - the first account for the general reader for many years and a triumphant example of narrative non-fiction at its best. The immediate cause of the famine was a bacterial infection of the potato crop on which too many the Irish poor depended. What turned a natural disaster into a human disaster was the determination of senior British officials to use relief policy as an instrument of nation-building in their oldest and most recalcitrant colony. Well-meaning civil servants were eager to modernise Irish agriculture and to improve the Irish moral character, which was utterly lacking in the virtues of the new age of triumphant capitalism. The result was a relief programme more concerned with fostering change than of saving lives. This is history that resonates powerfully with our own times.
There is a widely held conception that progress in science and technology is our salvation, and the more of it, the better. This, however, is an oversimplified and even dangerous attitude. While the future will certainly offer huge changes due to such progress, it is far from certain that all of these changes will be for the better.
The unprecedented rate of technological development that the 20th century witnessed has made our lives today vastly different from those in 1900. No slowdown is in sight, and the 21st century will most likely see even more revolutionary changes than the 20th, due to advances in science, technology and medicine.
Particular areas where extraordinary and perhaps disruptive advances can be expected include biotechnology, nanotechnology, and machine intelligence. We may also look forward various ways to enhance human cognitive and other abilities using, e.g., pharmaceuticals, genetic engineering or machine-brain interfaces - perhaps to the extent of changing human nature beyond what we currently think of as human, and into a posthuman era.
The potential benefits of all these technologies are enormous, but so are the risks, including the possibility of human extinction. This book is a passionate plea for doing our best to map the territories ahead of us, and for acting with foresight, so as to maximize our chances of reaping the benefits of the new technologies while avoiding the dangers.
