This is one in a series of accessible graphic guides to major thinkers and ideas. This book reflects the diversity and depth Nietzsche's work, and shows how it anticipates existentialism, psychoanalysis, semiotics and postmodernism.
For over two thousand years, garden enthusiasts and growers alike have fallen under the spell of that magical flower, the rose. Its beauty, its endless variety, and its intoxicating perfume have earned it the title "Queen of Flowering Plants", to the point that a splendid garden with no roses in it is scarcely conceivable.
Hinduism is arguably the world's oldest religion. Yet the word 'Hindu' is of foreign 18th-century origin. Although defined as polytheistic, Gandhi famously declared that one can be a Hindu without believing in any god. Introducing Hinduism examines the key philosophical, literary, mythological and cultural traditions of this diverse faith. It explores links with and differences from other religions, and describes the resurgence of Hindu extremism, the phenomenon of Bollywood and the Hindu diaspora.
The studies in the Ogawa Forest Reserve (OPR) were initiated by a group of plant ecologists and gradually expanded into a comprehensive project covering various aspects of biology, soil science, and silviculture. The project was integrated as part of the Forest Ecosystem Team under the BIO-COSMOS Program funded by the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries. As the coordinators of the Forest Ecosystem Team, we are pleased that reports of the long-term studies carried out in the OFR are being published in this first volume on Japanese ecosystems in the Ecological Studies series. Scientists and researchers have made numerous contributions to the field of forest ecology during more than 10 years of studies in the OFR. Two reasons can be cited for the success of the project: scientists from various disciplines concen trated on a single target forest ecosystem, and the research continued over a rela tively long term. It is now recognized that ecological processes include compli cated mechanisms supported by interactions among organisms and large temporal variations. The researchers in the OFR project were motivated by their interest in the history of ecosystems and the interactions of diverse creatures in the forest.
