Sustainability has become a sine qua non in the study and practice of engineering. This introductory textbook aims to make the concepts of sustainable engineering accessible to the undergraduate students of engineering. This will help them to keep in view the philosophy of sustainability while learning the core subjects of their specialisations and will equip them with a set of tools for this purpose. In addition to providing a broad-based introduction to the idea of sustainability and its relevance, the book talks about environment-related legislation, air and water pollution, solid waste management, local and global environmental challenges, climate change and the steps taken at an international level to manage them. Tools used to ensure sustainability in engineering activities such as Environmental Management Systems (EMS) and Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) are mentioned. Green buildings, green computing, green chemistry, sustainable cities, sustainable transportation, sustainable sources of energy, economic and social factors affecting sustainability including rapid urbanization and poverty are also covered. A set of questions, some of them quite open-ended, are added at the end of each chapter to help students test their understanding. The reader is encouraged to use this book as a starting point to explore how the principles of sustainable engineering are relevant to their chosen branch of study and professional practice. The references given at the end of the book will serve as efficient guideposts in this journey which is well worth taking.

Nature and Transcendence in Ralph Waldo Emerson's Essays and Mary Oliver's Poetry. A Comparison

Bachelor Thesis from the year 2016 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Literature, University of Dusseldorf "Heinrich Heine" (English), course: American Literature, language: English, abstract: This Bachelor thesis addressed the themes of nature and transcendence in Ralph Waldo Emerson’s essays and Mary Oliver’s poems in a comparative manner. Transcendentalism is best known as a literary genre in the American literature. It was a whole new system, which was built upon various literal, religious, and philosophical studies, such as Idealism. Ralph Waldo Emerson, who was born in 1803, is the first person to define Transcendentalism. With his essay ‘The Transcendentalist’ Emerson (1841) presented transcendentalism as a philosophical movement, which, then in years, developed into a spiritual, as well as a religious movement that evoked a social reform in society. The transcendentalists adopted a metaphysical view on the phenomena of nature, wherefore we find a collection of works written on the theme of ‘nature’ at that time. Mary Oliver, on the contrary, who was born on September 1935, is the winner of the Pulitzer Prize for American Primitive (1984). She wrote over twenty books, including her poems, essays and two books about poetry. Oliver writes a lot about nature and often uses religious or spiritual vocabulary in her works, such as God, soul, prayer, etc. The scholars mostly focus on the notions of ecoethics, feminism and mindfulness in her poetry. Still, it is hard to put Oliver’s lyric into a certain framework. What is Emerson’s transcendental philosophy concerned with? What do Mary Oliver’s poems depict about the soul and God? Does it have any relevance with the Emersonian idea of transcendence? How is nature described in Emerson’s essays? Does the phenomenon of nature in Mary Oliver’s poems have any similarities with Emerson’s idea of nature? What do Spirit, Soul and God refer to in Emerson’s works? What is the role of man in existence in Emerson’s essay as opposed to Mary Oliver’s speakers? To sum up, my goal with this thesis is to observe the notions of nature and transcendence in both authors’ selected works, in order to find out, whether there are any correlations or differences between their ideas. The questions mentioned above will be answered in detail in the following chapters.

Role Theory

Role Theory: Expectations, Identities, and Behaviors presents the applications of role concepts for education, social work, and clinical practice. This book examines the advantages as well as the shortcomings of the role stance. Organized into nine chapters, this book begins with an overview of behaviors that are characteristics of persons within contexts and the various processes that are employed to explain and predict those behaviors. This text then examines the concepts of the role field and discovers their applications to social problems of pressing concern. Other chapters consider the empirical evidence that has been developed within the role orientation concerning social problems. This book discusses as well the behavioral comparability, behavior linkage, behavioral effects, and complex linking concepts for behaviors. The final chapter discusses how contexts may affect the behaviors of persons and how those behaviors may have subsequent functions. This book is a valuable resource for anthropologists, sociologists, and social psychologists.
