📒Ways Of Understanding The Human Past ✍ Debi Prasad Chattopadhyaya
📝Ways of understanding the human past Book Synopsis : It Is Widely Acknowledged That An Idea Expressed In One Language, If Translated Into Another, Its Meaning And Its Associated Understanding Undergo Change. The English Word History Is Ordinarily Translated As Itihasa In The Sanskrit-Rooted Indian Languages. In The Euro-Americal Tradition History Is Traced To The Greek Word Historia, Learnt. Words Like Narrative, Story And Account Are Closely Linked To History. Itihasa Literally Means What Indeed Happened. Its Cognates In Indian Languages Are Itivrtta, Upakhyana, Gatha And Purana. That These Words Are Closely Related To Narrative, Story And Past Events Are Obvious. Chattopadhyaya Has Tried To Argue In This Book That The Modern Scientific Concept Of History, Though Has Its Undeniable Importance, Should Not Be Understood In A Dehistorised Manner. The Modern Concept Of History Should Not Be Confused With The Ancient Or Even The Medieval Concepts Like Purana, Puravrtta, Itihasa And Upakhyana. Our Modes Of Under-Standing And Action Should Not Be Telescoped Into Theirs. This Distinction Squarely Rests On The Difference Between Age-Specific Social Conditions And Their Influence On Human Ideas, Ideals, Languages, Rather Modes Of Speech, And Actions. An Attempt Has Been Made To Show How Literature In Its Wider Sense, Comprising Epoch-Bound Beliefs, Myths, Customs, Conventions, Social Movements And Other Forms Of Culture Enter Into Historical Narrative. In The Name Of Contemporanity Of History Its Very Temporality Or Time-Bound Character Can Hardly Be Denied. Chattopadhyaya Argues That History Embodies A Sort Of Inter-Epochal Dialogue (Samtap) Which, Like Different Forms Of Science And Arts, Are Endlessly Updatable. The Work Will Be Of Interest To Historians, Philosophers Of History, Social Scientists And Indologists.

📒Creating The Human Past ✍ Robert G. Bednarik
📝Creating the Human Past Book Synopsis : This book examines systematically both the theoretical and practical issues that have characterized the discipline over the past two centuries. Some of the historically most consequential mistakes in archaeology are dissected and explained, together with the effects of the related controversies. The theoretical basis of the discipline is deliberated in some detail, leading to the diagnosis that there are in fact numerous archaeologies, all with different notions of commensurability, ideologies, and purposes. Their various perspectives of what archaeology is and does are considered and the range of views of the human past is illuminated in this book. How humans became what they are today is of profound importance to understanding ourselves, both as a species and individually. Our psychology, cognition, diseases, intellect, communication forms, physiology, predispositions, ideologies, culture, genetics, behavior, and, perhaps most importantly, our reality constructs are all the result of our evolutionary history. Therefore the models archaeology--especially Pleistocene archaeology--creates of our past are not just narratives of what happened in human history; they are fundamental to every aspect of our existence.

📒The Human Tradition In Texas ✍ Ty Cashion

Biographical sketches of fifteen famous and little-known men and women of different colors, religions, and economic backgrounds offer new insight into the history of the state. Starting in the sixteenth century with Alvar N?Òez Cabeza de Vaca, the first European to make contact with Texas Indian tribes, and tracing Texas history to the late twentieth century with a final sketch of Gary Gaines, a high-school football coach, The Human Tradition in Texas brings the state's history to life by showing real people and the events and times in which they lived. Written by leading and rising scholars of Texas history, this book presents the major themes and periods in Texas history, including the settling of Anglo-Americans in the region, bringing an American democ-racy that supported slavery; the Civil War and Reconstruction; technologi-cal developments in the late nineteenth century, including railroads and irrigation for crops and livestock; Texas's transformation in the early twentieth century from a world of cotton and cattle to a world of paved streets, electricity and running water; the challenges to modernization faced by the state with the development of the oil industry, the growth in industrialization, and the increasing size of Texas's cities; the new age, with Texas taking leadership roles in the oil, aviation, and entertainment industries; and the expanding inclusiveness of Texas society, nowhere more complete than on the sports field-particularly the football field. A collection of accessible and entertaining essays on this vast, vibrant state, The Human Tradition in Texas is an excellent resource for courses in Texas history and the history of the American West.
