En los últimos cien años, las diferentes ramas de la ciencia,  casi en todas sus expresiones, se han esforzado por perfeccionar sus métodos, técnicas e instrumentación, con el ideal de lograr obtener un conocimiento que sea  auténtico, objetivo y real. Sin embargo, diversos descubrimientos han conducido a  calurosos debates sobre la diferencias entre lo qué es conocimiento objetivo, científico, protocientífico, seudocientífico y anticientifico. De hecho, subsistan disciplinas específicas que se avocan a explorar estos campos del saber, como la gnoselogía, etc. Al grado,  que actualmente se ha llegado a la formulación de  preguntas ontológicas como, ¿el grado de imperfección del método experimental, de la lógica formal, del valor real o simbólico de los números, los defectos e ilusiones de la percepción sensorial?, y hasta ¿si existe una realidad objetiva que pueda ser estudiada por la ciencia, o si se trata de una ilusión de los sentidos?.....

Islam and Life - Islamic Art Inspiring Western Art, Artists Part 1

Islamic Art is both a sacred and mundane art form and brings to the fore the redressing of the balance of identity for Western Muslims in which their faith, duties and worship serve as vehicles of elevation to understanding that God is beauty.

The Crisis of Authority - Workforce Tensions Paperback – December 30, 2013


The Crisis of Authority - Workforce Tensions Paperback – December 30, 2013

by Myrah K. Mashigo-Tshabalala (Author)

The public service in South Africa faces an enormous challenge in improving service delivery not only to meet the citizens' expectations but to ensure quality life for the nation. The urgent need exists to establish what went wrong and how can the situation be turned around. The book established the root causes and the link between two key challenges identified by the government; management weaknesses and the absence of a strong performance culture. It offers critical approaches to cleanse and humanise the workplace, restore sanity, level-headedness. Reflection, Introspection, Self-Interrogation and Self - therapy are key in this whole equation.

Princess Fumi Hancock: New Novel “Of Sentimental Value”


For Immediate Release
Contact: Nick Wale
Movie-making Bestselling Author Princess Fumi Hancock Hits The Top With Her New Novel “Of Sentimental Value”
Acclaimed author, Fumi Hancock, chalks up number one with her successful novel “Of Sentimental Value” just in time for the Black Friday boom.

African-born author, Princess Fumi Hancock, scored a number one smash hit with American readers today with her novel “Of Sentimental Value.” Princess Fumi has already seen the successful release of the movie adaptation of the book and has been picking up awards throughout the second half of the year.

“Of Sentimental Value” tells the tale of a young African immigrant’s dream of becoming the next bestselling writer in America. Although the dream is quickly eroding and the immigrant is buried in debt and facing eviction and a life on the streets, Siberia’s life is turned upside down when she is forced to retrieve a family artifact that she had unknowingly sold at a pawn shop.

Reviewers have been hailing Princess Fumi’s writing as “cultural,” “romantic” and “fun,” and readers have been picking up the book in strong quantities—but this month has seen a sharp upturn in sales as the book has caught on with readers around the world.

“Of Sentimental Value” is currently available on Amazon as both a paperback and as a Kindle download.
