This book contains two essays defending poetry against the mathematicians. The first is Nightingale's latest essay explaining how distinction, difference and recognition of variety (the usual tools to dispel vagueness), are themselves vague. Nightingale offers a web app he wrote for teaching logic with the understanding that difference, or the logical negation operation, is vague. Nightingale's dissertation done at Mahidol Univeristy, Thailand (2018) presents a significant finding that empirical investigation into vagueness is more interesting to students than precise scientific concepts. There is a selection of poetry—mostly published with some new poems.

At Earlham College in 1942, Ruthanna Farlow and her friends felt they had something of a nirvana, a place that others only dreamed of. It was a time of war, but Earlham was a place of Quakerly kindness. Love was for all, not a select few. This sort of spirit came as no shock to Ruthanna. She was from the southern Indiana town of Paoli. Its population was about 3,000if you counted the dogs and cats. The town had been settled by Quakers and dominated by the Penn love ethic. No one had ever specifically said to her, “All people are the same.” She just assumed it to be true because if you loved your neighbor, how could it be otherwise? That same spirit of tolerance would bring a young Japanese American man into her life. Despite it being only months since the bombing of Pearl Harbor, Earlham College had opened its doors to Japanese American students from the West Coast, students who would have otherwise been interned. Friendships with these students would be encouraged. Interracial dating, however, was another matter. Marriage? Illegal in Indiana and most other states.

Earlham College

Earlham College
$23.99

Earlham College, opened in 1847, is the second oldest Quaker college in the world. From a school intended for the guarded religious education of the children of Friends, it has evolved to become an international institution of higher education, with faculty and students from around the world. From a campus where Old Earlham Hall housed everything--dormitories, classrooms, administrative offices, kitchen, library, and dining hall--Earlham now includes over 20 buildings dating back to 1861. Its alumni include a Nobel laureate--Wendell M. Stanley, class of 1926--and two Pulitzer Prize winners--Edwin Way Teale, class of 1922, and Manning Marable, class of 1971. Earlhamites have been politicians, authors, activists, and above all teachers and scientists. A wealth of archival photographs illustrate Earlham's evolution, highlighting leaders, faculty, student life, off-campus programs, athletics, alumni, and visitors to campus who have ranged from Martin Luther King Jr. to George Wallace.

Earlham College: A History 1847-1997

Earlham College: A History 1847-1997
$35.00
Earlham College was founded by Indiana Quakers in 1847 for the "guarded religious education of the children of Friends." Today it is among the handful of nationally ranked liberal arts colleges still retaining a strong religious identity. In the last half century, Earlham has become a national institution. Unlike many other denominational colleges, it has preserved and strengthened its sectarian identity: becoming home to the first Quaker theological seminary in the world, instituting a system of consensus governance, and attracting well-known Quaker faculty. Thomas D. Hamm tells the story of this remarkable institution with the grace and insight that have distinguished his previous writing on the Quakers.

Good Punishment?

GOOD PUNISHMENT? (P)
$22.00

More than 2 million persons occupy America's prisons and jails today -- the highest per capita incarceration rate in U.S. history. With just 6 percent of the world's population, the United States now holds 25 percent of its prisoners. At what social cost do we build and fill more prisons?

In Good Punishment? James Samuel Logan critiques the American obsession with imprisonment as punishment, calling it -retributive degradation- of the incarcerated. His analysis draws on both salient empirical data and material from a variety of disciplines -- social history, anthropology, law and penal theory, philosophy of religion -- as he uncovers the devastating social consequences (both direct and collateral) of imprisonment on such a large, unprecedented scale.

A distinctive contribution of this book lies in its development of a Christian social ethics of -good punishment- embodied as a politics of -healing memories- and -ontological intimacy.- Logan earnestly explores how Christians can best engage with the real-life issues and concerns surrounding the American practice of imprisonment.

My Dear Comrades

My Dear Comrades
$17.95

In this poetry collection, Sunu P. Chandy includes stories about her experiences as a woman, civil rights attorney, parent, partner, daughter of South Asian immigrants, and member of the LGBTQ community. These poems cover themes ranging from immigration, social justice activism, friendship loss, fertility challenges, adoption, caregiving, and life during a pandemic. Sunu's poems provide some resolve, some peace, some community, amidst the competing notions of how we are expected to be in the world, especially when facing a range of barriers. Sunu's poems provide company for many who may be experiencing isolation through any one of these experiences and remind us that we are not, in fact, going it alone. Whether the experience is being disregarded as a woman of color attorney, being rejected for being queer, losing a most treasured friendship, doubting one's romantic partner or any other form of heartbreak, Sunu's poems highlight the human requirement of continually starting anew. These poems remind us that we can, and we will, rebuild.

Prophetic Healing

Prophetic Healing
$18.00

Can mystics be political activists? Can our encounter with God inspire us to be agents of social transformation? Through the lens of Howard Thurman's life and mystical theology, Bruce Epperly explores what it means to join prophetic ministry with personal and social healing. Despite the racism he experienced throughout his life, Thurman joined his spiritual experiences with a commitment to racial and social healing. He was a prophet, challenging racism and social injustice. He was also a healer who experienced God's presence in oppressor as well as oppressed. Thurman's holistic spirituality provides a pathway for social healing in a time characterized by polarization, incivility, and hatred. Thurman reminds us that we can both picket and pray, and protest injustice while working toward reconciliation.

The spiritual exercises at the end of each chapter draw on Howard Thurman's work to challenge us--if we practice these exercises seriously and with commitment--to develop a new view of our opponents. They help us toward loving our enemies, and becoming the "friendly world of friendly persons" that Thurman described.
