First because Fox understands that '[I]f its full implications are grasped, environmental ethics represents the most general form of ethics we have. Far from being a minor, "applied ethics" offshoot of the field of inquiry hitherto known simply as ethics, environmental ethics actually represents a vast enlargement of that field of enquiry' p.
Second, because his book is devoted to the neglected branch of environmental ethics that deals with the built environment This book is intended to kick start a long overdue debate. Fox concludes by expressing the hope that 'this field of inquiry becomes a vigorous, inspirational and practically fruitful contributor to life in the twenty-first century' p.
I bet it does. If you are an architect, structural engineer, urban planner or are in any other way professionally involved in the built environment, or if you are an environmental ethicist who wants to broaden your vision to include the built environment, buy this book. If you're not, buy it for someone who is.
One of the most interesting volumes published on this topic in recent years was Warwick Fox's edited compilation on Ethics and the Built Environment More from the fact he's riding her coattails. He's embarking on a journey to whatever lies beyond the River Acheron--early. He wasn't buried with an obol to expedite his trip to the afterlife.
So, he "borrows" Calliope's. Guilt from the torment his actions cause her helps him see beyond his soul's reality of using the beautiful goddess. Oh, to live and never know you've lived Product Details About the Author. About the Author Educated in geology and anthropology, writing lured Skhye away from finishing her thesis in bioarchaeology anthropology. Aside from muscled men in fur, leather, denim, and kilts, Skhye loves cultural ecology, cultural evolution, cultural relativism, and natural processes. Big ideas. Simple concepts that manifest in world building to crazy people like Skhye who studied anthropology and geology before turning to writing romantic fiction.
Her rule of thumb is to love the good, the bad, and the ugly of every culture in her tales so that every culture in her tales and every aspect of her stories resonates as real as possible.

I can not imagine a way to describe this story.
After running across Skhye Moncrief's web site and blog, I was sure that I would enjoy her writing and that it would bring something very unique and imaginative. I was not wrong! I know next to nothing about Greek mythology, but this book was full of it. I am not sure if the book contained actual Greek myths, or if the contents of this book are more Ms. Moncrief's imagination. Either way, this was a read that I will not soon forget!

This made Ancient Musings even more exciting to me as I read about different facets of those myths and legends. This is the fifth of six articles about the Cantigas de Santa Maria , composed between and These articles focus on the influences behind the compositions and the contents of the songs.
We begin with an instrumental version of CSM The miraculous night of peace , played on medieval harp. This Cantiga which tells the story of the Virgin preventing violence between two groups of soldiers, one Christian and the other Moorish.

This is arguably the most important collection of medieval music, and certainly one of the largest, with songs, illustrated with vibrant illuminations of the songs and court musicians. This is the fourth in a series of six articles about the Cantigas. In these songs there are constant references to pilgrimage, reflecting its importance in medieval Christianity generally. Holy relics, which proliferated in the period prior to the Cantigas , play a talisman-like role and bring all three themes together. This article explores the many pilgrimage themes in the Cantigas , beginning with a live performance of Cantiga , featuring an animated pork chop.

This article explores why this is so, placing this beautiful song in its three contexts — lyrical, musical and historical — with a video of the song sung by The Night Watch, accompanied by gittern and citole. The Cantigas de Santa Maria is arguably one of the most important collections of medieval songs, and certainly one of the largest. Composed between and by the Iberian King Alfonso X and his courtiers, they are largely versifications in song of the miracle stories of the Virgin Mary circulating in 13 th century Europe. How does such a problematic role model affect the kingship of Alfonso?
And how does this influence the content of the songs?
In dulci jubilo is one of the most recognisable and joyful melodies of the middle ages, but it carries one of the most shocking and astonishing stories. The song is first mentioned in , sung and danced by an angel in a vision of Heinrich Suso, German Christian mystic of the 14 th century, extreme practitioner of Christian self-mortification.
In the first article , we traced the development of troubadour love song from the late 11 th century to the end of the 13 th century. This was the faith that Alfonso X of Castile inherited. This second article explains why. We begin with a performance in English of Cantiga , the song-story of a troubadour in trouble and in prison, who only escapes by dedicating himself to the Virgin. In the early music revival, many renaissance and baroque instruments have received their due recognition: the lute in its various forms, the viol family, early violins, recorders, guitars and keyboards, for example.

Both were strung with wire and plucked, they shared the same scalloped shape and fanned frets, and both were particularly popular in England. The deep pitch of the larger bandora made it eminently suitable as the plucked bass of the mixed consort, while the orpharion shared the tuning and repertoire of the renaissance lute and was considered an interchangeable alternative. This article gives a brief history of both instruments, with indications of their respective repertoires, the descriptive testimonies of contemporaneous writers, some lost related instruments, and videos of both the bandora and orpharion being played.
