The present volume is the fifth issue of the 'Evolution' Yearbook series. Our Yearbooks are designed to present to its readers the widest possible spectrum of subjects and issues: from universal evolutionism to the analysis of particular evolutionary regularities in the development of biological, abiotic, and social systems, culture, cognition, language, etc. The main objective of our Yearbook is the creation of a unified interdisciplinary field of research, within which scientists specializing in different disciplines could work within the framework of unified or similar paradigms, using common terminology and searching for common rules, tendencies and regularities. Global evolution (in connection with the Big History) becomes the main subject of our Yearbook. We strive to arrange each issue in such a way that the line from cosmic evolution to the human future is evident. What is the subject of the present issue of the Yearbook? Similar to the previous issues, it shows some aspects of the evolutionary advance from the earlier phases to the anticipated future of human society. But on the whole, this volume is devoted to different aspects and facts of megaevolution and some universal theories in an attempt to find common ground in the diversity of manifestation of evolution and its forms at different stages of development. So the title of this issue, 'Evolution and Big History: Dimensions, Trends, and Forecasts', is fully justified (besides, several papers contribute to the field of Big History). The volume consists of four sections: Dimensions, Trends, and Aspects; Big History's Manifestations; Trends and Forecasts; and Reviews and Information. This Yearbook will be useful both for those who study interdisciplinary macroproblems and for specialists working in focused directions, as well as for those who are interested in evolutionary issues of Cosmology, Biology, History, Anthropology, Economics and other areas of study. More than that, this edition will challenge and excite your vision of your own life and the new discoveries going on around us.
Many researchers wrongly assume that validity is theproperty of an instrument, and that once validity hasbeen ''demonstrated'' no further analysis is requiredwhen it is used in a different research context.This work challenges that idea and seeks to remindresearchers that validity, the ''ne plus ultra'' of anyresearch, is a multi-layered process incorporatingboth statistical and judgmental evidence, that mustbe specifically accounted for in any empirical project.A Japanese translation of Bennett and Hammer''sIntercultural Development Inventory (version 1) wastested for content, concurrent, and consequentialvalidity following Messick''s (1998) framework inwhich these aspects of validity are seen tocontribute to an overarching judgment of constructvalidity. The validation analysis raised questionsabout whether results from a translated IDI, and byextension the stages of the Developmental Model ofIntercultural Sensitivity (DMIS) upon which it isbased, are transferable across languages and cultures.This work serves as a reminder that validity is acritical element, and that it must be an explicitlyaddressed, particularly in cross-cultural research.
This is Caitlin Moran's rallying call for our times. Combining the best of her recent columns with lots of new writing, Caitlin deals with topics as pressing and diverse as 1980s swearing, benefits, boarding schools, and why the internet is like a drunken toddler. And while never afraid to address the big issues of the day - such as Benedict Cumberbatch and duffel coats - Caitlin also makes a passionate effort to understand our 21st century society and presents us with her 'Moranifesto" for making the world a better place.
With an Introduction by Derek Matravers. In The Social Contract Rousseau (1712-1778) argues for the preservation of individual freedom in political society. An individual can only be free under the law, he says, by voluntarily embracing that law as his own. Hence, being free in society requires each of us to subjugate our desires to the interests of all, the general will. Some have seen in this the promise of a free and equal relationship between society and the individual, while others have seen it as nothing less than a blueprint for totalitarianism. The Social Contract is not only one of the great defences of civil society, it is also unflinching in its study of the darker side of political systems.
