To Sarah, growing up in England around American military children, America, “The Land of Milk and Honey,” sounds like Paradise. She dreams of immigrating to a place where anything seems possible. Yet life itself seems determined to thwart her...she has a series of death-defying experiences, and several tragic romances that distract her from her dream. Just when all hope seems lost, however, a handsome “Prince Charming,” rescues her, and carries her away to the land of her dreams...just as a psychic medium had predicted. Where the mysterious old lady, reading Sarah’s cards, refused to tell her the horrors that were to happen next, the previous suffering Sarah had experienced up until that time was nothing in comparison to what awaited her in America. Abandoning a familiar way of life and starting over again is much harder than she ever dreamed it would be. Dysfunction, domestic violence, and family catastrophe are among the challenges Sarah had faced in her life with much worse to come.

Justification as Ignorance

Author: Sven Rosenkranz

Publisher: Oxford University Press

ISBN: 0192635085

Category: Philosophy

Page: 224

View: 9082


Justification as Ignorance offers an original account of epistemic justification as both non-factive and luminous, vindicating core internalist intuitions without construing justification as an internal condition knowable by reflection alone. Sven Rosenkranz conceives of justification, in its doxastic and propositional varieties, as a kind of epistemic possibility of knowing and of being in a position to know. His account contrasts with recent alternative views that characterize justification in terms of the metaphysical possibility of knowing. Instead, he develops a suitable non-normal multi-modal epistemic logic for knowledge and being in a position to know that respects the finding that these notions create hyperintensional contexts. He also defends his conception of justification against well-known anti-luminosity arguments, shows that the account allows for fruitful applications and principled solutions to the lottery and preface paradoxes, and provides a metaphysics of justification and its varying degrees of strength that is compatible with core assumptions of the knowledge-first approach and disjunctivist conceptions of mental states.

Postal Pleasures

In 1889 uniformed post-boys were discovered moonlighting in a West End brothel frequented by men of the upper classes. "The Cleveland Street Scandal" erupted and Victorian Britain faced the possibility that the Post Office-a bureaucratic backbone of nation and empire-was inspiring and servicing subversive sexual behavior. However, the unlikely alliance between sex and the postal service was not exactly the news the sensational press made it out to be. Postal Pleasures explores the relationship between illicit sex and the Royal Mail from reforms initiated in 1840 up to the imperial end of the nineteenth century. With a combination of historical details and literary analyses, Kate Thomas illustrates how the postal network, its uniformed employees, and its material trappings-envelopes, postmarks, stamps-were used to signal and circulate sexual intrigue. For many, the idea of an envelope promiscuously jostling its neighbors in a post boy's bag, or the notion that secrets passed through the eyes and fingers of telegraph girls, was more stimulating than the actual contents of correspondence. Writers like Anthony Trollope, Eliza Lynn Lynton, Henry James, Oscar Wilde, Arthur Conan Doyle, and others, invoked the postal system as both an instrument and a metaphor for sexual relations that crossed and double-crossed lines of class, marriage, and heterosexuality. Postal Pleasures adds a new dimension to studies of the era as it uncovers the unlikely linkage between the Victorian Post Office and the queer networks it inspired.
