political action in the public’s deficit of scientific knowledge. By making climate change into a personal matter for both himself and the audience, Gore recognised that knowledge alone is not enough. In this respect, they note, the Expertise 173 film echoes John Dewey’s argument that science education requires aesthetic modes of communication, because ‘ideas are effective not as bare ideas but as they have imaginative content and emotional appeal’ (Dewey, 1988:169). By presenting himself performing his slideshow in front of various audiences, Gore sought to ‘create a

can be prevented in subsequent generations. As we shall see, this does raise a couple of lines of concern with respect of the ethics of mtDNA transfer. Freedom from legal restriction The background to the UK’s regulation of mtDNA transfer goes back to the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Act (1990), which was modified by a further Act in 2008; in effect, the mtDNA transfer regulations constitute a gloss on that modificatory legislation. The 1990 law’s attitude to genetic manipulation was fairly straightforward: it stipulated in section 3(1) that ‘[n]o person shall

fully understand the present volume’s dealing with the third phase. In this respect, Human Remains in Society re­presents not only the logical continuation, but also the culmination of our research. It is the fruit of a conference held at the University of Manchester in September 2014 that sought to investigate the legacy of mass crimes, with a particular focus on understanding the ­different mechanisms and logics involved in the reappearance of human remains. Human Remains in Society therefore aims to concentrate on the treatment and the eventual fate of corpses and

collective good. The goal here is not just to sustain but actively to create a community of French speakers into the indefinite future. Two strands make up this argument. In the early sections of the essay, Taylor defends the notion that individuals require, not just respect, but others’ recognition: they need to be the object of others’ positive attitudes. Through a matrix where affirmation is given and received, individuals

In­deed, that this has taken such a long time is because we wished to have it in the mind of Your Holi­ness, since we are your sons and you will forgive us. If there is a wrong or sin that we have committed, the Deity, the Son of the living God, who is wanted by all, has given you the key to redeem the wanted ones from among the un­wanted and to turn as your sons the kings that

among men may partly have played out between the classes; but, as Sjöberg points out, kinship has been of great significance, too. The fathers, brothers, and husbands of the women in one and the same social group had different interests with respect to women's property, and the right of disposal of this property increasingly favoured the interests of husbands, as did the legislation. 23 A father's power over his daughter decreased, while a husband's influence over his wife

reinforcing images in the sporting press, cinema, radio and other media it aided the invention and maintenance of a particular image of Britain, an image which showed respect and deference for the monarchy and upper classes. Recent revisionist analysis of the effects of the First World War has shown how elites and their institutions stayed firmly in place afterwards, and in the 1920s and 1930s had the support of the great majority of the middle class.2 In part a study of racing supports such an analysis. Racing both symbolised and reflected the undemocratic nature of

methodologies and interests of academics like de Blécourt represent a flexible continental historiographical tradition that has less respect for orthodox chronological and disciplinary boundaries. By way of further example, consider Le Roy Ladurie’s imaginative detective work into the origins of the witch poem by the mid-nineteenth-century hairdresser-poet Jacques Jasmin, and the work of Éva Pócs in Hungary who has drawn upon early modern archives and twentiethcentury folklore to piece together patterns of belief.6 Beyond the witch trials also appears in the wake of the

Britain, Ireland and Denmark, did not take place on the basis of explicit membership criteria. It was not until the mid-1970s that membership conditions became a matter of concern, because of the unfolding events in Southern Europe. In April 1978, the European Council declared that respect for and maintenance of representative democracy and human rights in each Member State are essential elements of membership in the European

. This chapter reviews the fundamental principles of a free education before describing how these may be observed in practice in some of the many schools around the world that may be described variously as democratic, non-authoritarian, non-formal or free. The examples chosen come from many different cultures, and they differ widely from each other, but all are based on respect for the child as a person with the same rights as anyone else. In such schools, ignorant of Ferrer though they may be, many of his ideas have been proved by experience. The Modern School
