Madhyamaka, or "Middle Way," philosophy came to Tibet from India and became the basis of all of Tibetan Buddhism. The Tibetans, however, differentiated two streams of Madhyamaka philosophy — Svatantrika and Prasangika. In this collection, leading scholars in the field address this Tibetan distinction on various levels, including the philosophical import for both Indian and Tibetan Madhyamaka and the historical development of the distinction.

In this classic work, Adler explores how man differs from all other things in the universe, bringing to bear both philosophical insight and informed scientific hypotheses concerning the biological and behavioral characteristics of mainkind. Rapid advances in science and technology and the abstract concepts of that influence on man and human value systems are lucidly outlined by Adler, as he touches on the effect of industrialization, and the clash of cultures and value systems brought about by increased communication between previously isolated groups of people. Among the other problems this s

The recent surge in research activity in difference equations and applications has been driven by the wide applicability of discrete models to such diverse fields as biology, engineering, physics, economics, chemistry, and psychology. The 68 papers that make up this book were presented by an international group of experts at the Second International Conference on Difference Equations, held in Veszprem, Hungary, in August, 1995. Featuring contributions on such topics as orthogonal polynomials, control theory, asymptotic behavior of solutions, stability theory, special functions, numerical a

Why are women so dramatically underrepresented in formal leadership positions—and what can be done to improve the situation? This unique collection takes up these questions in the crucial practical concepts of law, politics, and business—the arenas in which women’s leadership has the most public influence. Bridging the worlds of theory and practice, the essays in this collection bring new insights to long-standing questions about the difference gender difference makes, both in access to leadership and in its exercise. The contributors to this collection represent some of the nation’s
