Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2008 im Fachbereich Sachunterricht, Heimatkunde (Grundschulpadagogik), Note: keine, Universitat Luneburg (Sachunterricht), Veranstaltung: Kulturelle und biologische Diversitat - Zugange fur Kinder, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Die folgende Arbeit ist ein Resultat des Seminars Biologische und kulturelle Vielfalt - Zugange fur Kinder." In diesem Seminar ging es um die Verknupfung von Biodiversitat und kultureller Vielfalt. Zunachst wurde durch theoretische Betrachtung der einzelnen Bereiche eine Wissensgrundlage geschaffen, die dann zusammengesetzt wurde. Die Umsetzung erfolgte anhand von Zeitungsartikeln fur eine Seminarzeitung. Die Artikel wurden nach der Struktur des Seminars verfasst. Vorerst wurde so das Thema biologi-sche Diversitat beleuchtet und mittels verschiedener praktischer Problemstellung analysiert. Hierbei war es entscheidend, dass die dazugehorigen Artikel eine Kernproblematik ansprachen und uber die biologische Vielfalt grundsatzlich Auf-schluss gaben. Nachdem dieses auch mit der kulturellen Vielfalt erreicht wurde, standen Artikel an, die beide Bereiche miteinander vernetzen sollten. Dieses stellte sich zwar als Herausforderung, aber auch als sehr lehrreich und interessant heraus. Aus dieser Idee und des darauffolgenden Artikels, der mit Hilfe eines konkreten Unter-richtsthemas, die bisherigen Gegenstande in die Praxis umsetzen sollten, wurde unsere Idee fur diese Arbeit. Die Luneburger Heide" stellt ein mehrperspektivisches Thema dar, das sich fur die Bearbeitung von Diversitat, biologischer sowie kultureller, geradezu anbietet. In der folgenden Arbeit soll diese These belegt werden, indem alle Facetten dieser besonderen Landschaft aufgegriffen und beschrieben werden. Zunachst folgt eine erneute Auseinandersetzung mit dem Thema des Seminars und es wird eine Grundlage fur die Bearbeitung unseres Unterrichtsgegenstandes geschaffen. Danach folgt ein Kapitel uber die Luneburger Heide" und ihre Entstehung, um eine Wissensb

The world seems ever smaller and ever quicker: environmental, public health, industrial and cultural processes operate ever more on a global, rather than a local scale. Does this process, sometimes known as globalisation, draw us closer together, or drive us further apart, from a moral point of view? In recent years, bioethics has addressed many of the issues that arise in the context of globalisation: solidarity, conflict, and autonomy; human rights, liberty and toleration; the political and economic context of health care and inequalities in health; environmental and public health change. At the same time, bioethics has often been merely an agent of obscure political forces, and has been challenged for its emphasis on autonomy over considerations of justice. This study brings together scientists from the fields of medicine, law, and philosophy. The texts are the results of a conference the Europäische Akademie held in 2003. The group developed its thesis in open discussions of foundational and applied problems of bioethics from an interdisciplinary and international perspective.

The cyclical boom-to-recession nature of the economics of cocoa supply is a major problem for the international cocoa industry - and especially for countries whose economies depend on cocoa exports. Only through an understanding of the dynamics of cocoa cycles can policy decisions be made through the various phases of supply cycles. Based on a major international cocoa conference, this book presents seventeen edited papers from leading experts, making a major contribution to that understanding. It explains the powerful economic, social and political factors which impact on the cocoa economy. It shows the laws of cocoa supply are closely linked to environmental, ecological and institutional factors.

What is the biological reason for gossip? For laughter? For the creation of art? Why do dogs have curly tails? What can microbes tell us about morality? These and many other questions are tackled by renowned evolutionist David Sloan Wilson in this witty and groundbreaking new book. With stories that entertain as much as they inform, Wilson outlines the basic principles of evolution and shows how, properly understood, they can illuminate the length and breadth of creation, from the origin of life to the nature of religion. Now everyone can move beyond the sterile debates about creationism and intelligent design to share Darwin’s panoramic view of animal and human life, seamlessly connected to each other. Evolution, as Wilson explains, is not just about dinosaurs and human origins, but about why all species behave as they do—from beetles that devour their own young, to bees that function as a collective brain, to dogs that are smarter in some respects than our closest ape relatives. And basic evolutionary principles are also the foundation for humanity’s capacity for symbolic thought, culture, and morality. In example after example, Wilson sheds new light on Darwin’s grand theory and how it can be applied to daily life. By turns thoughtful, provocative, and daringly funny, Evolution for Everyone addresses some of the deepest philosophical and social issues of this or any age. In helping us come to a deeper understanding of human beings and our place in the world, it might also help us to improve that world. From the Hardcover edition.
