'This is one of the most powerful, real, relevant, and thought-provoking books I have picked up in some time.' The Art of Healing Have you ever wondered: Whether marijuana can lead to harder drugs. How come you feel immortal on speed. Why acid trips can feel so good - or so bad. Why total strangers bond on ecstasy. Whether drugs can enhance your spirituality. Why some antidepressants can make your depression worse. Higher and Higher offers a fresh perspective on every aspect of drugs from addiction to repair. Using a new analytical approach that fuses Traditional Chinese Medicine and Energy Medicine, it shows you how to integrate past drug experiences into your life in a positive way. Learn how to reclaim the excitement and exhilaration drugs offer, through a unique mind - body - spirit workout. Combining case studies with a candid account of Jost Sauer's own journey through drugs, depression and near self-destruction, to good health and freedom, Higher and Higher is in turn confronting, thought-provoking and informative. This uplifting and accessible read takes you on a roller-coaster ride from the relentless pursuit of drug-induced highs to genuine wellness. This unique book, based on Jost Sauer's personal and professional experience, provides invaluable insights into the human need to feel good, and details a healthy and sustainable path for you to reach the ultimate high.

In this new decade, institutions of learning and the learning individuals who attend them are confronted with phenomena of change and transition, and with contradictions. Traditional learning and education concepts therefore have to be reevaluated and adapted to current circumstances. In this book, which comprises contributions in English and in German, authors from different scientific disciplines look at learning on the basis of three key aspects: higher education, language and place. Angekommen im neuen Jahrzehnt sehen sich Bildungsinstitutionen und lernende Individuen mit Phänomenen des Wandels und des Umbruchs sowie mit Widersprüchen konfrontiert. Traditionelle Lern- und Bildungskonzepte müssen deshalb neu überdacht und den aktuellen Begebenheiten angepasst werden. In diesem Buch, das sowohl deutsche als auch englische Beiträge versammelt, blicken AutorInnen unterschiedlicher wissenschaftlicher Disziplinen auf das Lernen anhand der Schwerpunkte Hochschule, Sprache, Ort.

Colleges and universities are among the most cherished institutions in American society—and also among the most controversial. Yet affirmative action and skyrocketing tuition are only the most recent dissonant issues to emerge. Recounting the many crises and triumphs in the long history of American higher education, historian John Thelin provides welcome perspective on this influential aspect of American life. In A History of American Higher Education, Thelin offers a wide-ranging and engaging account of the origins and evolution of America's public and private colleges and universities, emphasizing the notion of saga—the proposition that institutions are heirs to numerous historical strands and numerous attempts to address such volatile topics as institutional cost and effectiveness, admissions and access, and the character of the curriculum. Thelin draws on both official institutional histories and the informal memories that constitute legends and lore to offer a fresh interpretation of an institutional past that reaches back to the colonial era and encompasses both well-known colleges and universities and such understudied institutions as community, women's, and historically black colleges, proprietary schools, and freestanding professional colleges. Thelin's lively history has particular relevance for a society still struggling to determine what constitutes a legitimate field of study, reminding readers that Harvard once used its medical school as a safe place to admit the sons of wealthy alumni who could not pass the undergraduate college admissions examination and that the University of Pennsylvania once considered the study of history, government, and economics unworthy of addition to the liberal arts curriculum. Thelin also addresses the role of local, state, and federal governments in colleges and universities, as well as the influence of private foundations and other organizations. And through imaginative interpretation of films, novels, and popular magazines, he illuminates the convoluted relationship between higher education and American culture. For anyone attempting to understand America's colleges and universities, A History of American Higher Education offers a much-needed challenge to conventional wisdom about how these institutions developed and functioned in the past.
