Buridan was a brilliant logician in an age of brilliant logicians, sensitive to formal and philosophical considerations. There is a need for critical editions and accurate translations of his works, for his philosophical voice speaks directly across the ages to problems of concern to analytic philosophers today. But his idiom is unfamiliar, so editions and trans- lations alone will not bridge the gap of centuries. I have tried to make Buridan accessible to philosophers and logicians today by the introduc- tory essay, in which I survey Buridan's philosophy of logic. Several problems which Buridan touches on only marginally in the works trans- lated herein are developed and discussed, citing other works of Buridan; some topics which he treats at length in the translated works, such as the semantic theory of oblique terms, I have touched on lightly or not at all. Such distortions are inevitable, and I hope that the idiosyncracies of my choice of philosophically relevant topics will not blind the reader to other topics of value Buridan considers. My goal in translating has been to produce an accurate renaering of the Latin. Often Buridan will couch a logical rule in terms of the grammatical form of a sentence, and I have endeavored to keep the translation consistent. Some strained phrases result, such as "A man I know" having a different logic from "I know a man. " This awkwardness cannot always be avoided, and I beg the reader's indulgence. All of the translations here are my own.
This authoritative work examines the experiences of the Latin American countries during the Second World War, their reactions to its outbreak and the extent of their involvement. Although the war was fought far from Latin America, the area had immense economic and strategic significance for the great powers and witnessed a fierce struggle between them for influence and advantage.
In this volume, R.A. Humphreys covers the period from the eve of war to the end of the Rio de Janeiro Conference of American Foreign Ministers in 1942, when all Latin American states, with the exception of Argentina and Chile, had either declared war on the Axis Powers or severed relations with them. This account is based on a wide variety of sources, including the author's own war-time study of the Latin American press and the records of the British Foreign Office.
Perinatal Depression among Spanish-Speaking and Latin American Women
A Global Perspective on Detection and Treatment
Sandraluz Lara-Cinisomo and Katherine Leah Wisner, editors
As more is known about postpartum depression, the more it is recognized as a global phenomenon. Yet despite the large numbers, information about this condition as experienced by Spanish speaking womenand Latinas has not always been easy to come by.
Perinatal Depression among Spanish-Speaking and Latin American Women focuses on four diverse Latina populations (Mexico, Chile, Spain, and U.S.) to analyze key similarities and differences within this large and wide-ranging group. This first-of-its-kind reference reviews current research on the topic, including prevalence, screening methods, interventions, and--of particular salience for this population--barriers to care.
Findings on psychoeducation, assessment tools, and cognitive-behavioral and other forms of therapy provide important insights into best practices, and continuity of care. And psychosocial, cultural, and linguistic considerations in working with Latinas are described in depth for added clinical usefulness. This landmark volume:
Between its thorough coverage of the issues and its innovative clinical ideas, Perinatal Depression among Spanish-Speaking and Latin American Women has a wealth of information of interest to researchers and practitioners in maternal and child health, obstetrics/gynecology, mental health, and women s health."
