Democracy, Diversity, Religion [Audio]
Speaker(s): Professor Charles Taylor | Professor Charles Taylor will look at the constant temptation for modern democracies to veer towards exclusion. This is despite them being founded on a principle of inclusion, and is due to a weakness built into motivations which democracies draw upon. Having firmly established this context, Professor Taylor will discuss the exclusionary moves we have seen in many Western democracies which have targeted (unfamiliar) religions. Why this intense focus and how

ANU and ABC 666 Psychology Week Forum: Have we fallen out of love with women?
The glass ceiling is a term commonly used to refer to the complex and ill-defined barrier apparently separating many women from the very top levels of the workforce. To succeed at the top, women may have no choice but to put aside their feminine qualities and attributes, and assume an identity that is more traditionally male. The experience of success for women can therefore be very different than it is for men and it appears that Australians still struggle to feel love for female public figure

1.1 Introduction

To the lay person, it might seem surprising that there is any problem with the recognition of higher taxa. The very existence of long-established vernacular names for inclusive groupings of species (e.g. finches, thrushes, parrots and hawks as distinct groups of birds) suggests that higher taxa are self-evident. Accordingly, the task of the taxonomist might seem merely to consist of recognising these groupings and assembling them in a hierarchy of increasingly inclusive categories.

Introduction

This unit introduces the topic of vectors. The subject is developed without assuming you have come across it before, but the unit assumes that you have previously had a basic grounding in algebra and trigonometry, and how to use Cartesian coordinates for specifying a point in a plane.

This is an adapted extract from the Open University course Mathematical methods and models (MST209)
