  • Outdoor education in Aotearoa New Zealand: A new vision for the twenty first century

    Irwin, D.; Straker, J.; Hill, A. (2011)

    Book
    Christchurch Polytechnic Institute of Technology, Te Wānanga Ōtautahi

    Outdoor education in a variety of guises has a rich history in Aotearoa New Zealand, dating back more than 100 years. Learning experiences in the outdoors have a strong and oft en much-loved place in our collective education memories, from environmental field trips in the mountain valleys of Aoraki/Mount Cook to school camps at Port Waikato; from primary school stream study and restoration projects to multiday alpine journeys for tertiary students. However, as we move into the second decade of the twenty-fi rst century, the world we live in is vastly diff erent from the one in which many of us developed those memories. What does that mean for education, and more specifi cally, what does that mean for educational experiences that take place in outdoor environments? This book attends to these questions from a forward looking position. It shares a vision of outdoor education which moves beyond the proud histories of twentieth century school camps, fi eld studies and outdoor pursuits to one which addresses the exigent and contemporary issues confronting educators and students alike. The twenty-first century seems to be characterised by great uncertainty and rapid change. Issues such as climate change, growing inequality between the haves and have-nots, and rising levels of consumption and waste are increasingly entering the fray of our everyday lived realities. So too are bigger (or indeed smaller), better, and faster technologies. Cultural norms are constantly being challenged, contested, and reshaped. How then does outdoor education wrestle with and speak to these and other issues?

  • Fantastica: The World of Leo Bensemann

    Simpson, Peter (2011)

    Book
    The University of Auckland Library

    Fantastica: The World of Leo Bensemann represents the culmination of thirty years of research into this artist, typographer and printer (1912-1986) who was a pivotal figure in the vibrant artistic scene in Christchurch for over 50 years. My work on Bensemann encompasses three edited books: Fantastica (1997), Engravings on Wood (2004) and Dark Arts (2011) – the last named listed below (ORO 2) – two exhibitions, Rita Angus & Leo Bensemann: The Cambridge Terrace Years (1999) and the exhibition listed as NRO2, Leo Bensemann A Fantastic Art Venture, co-curated with Noel Waite (2011), plus numerous articles, lectures and talks. I am considered the leading authority on Bensemann’s work. The book was widely and positively reviewed, as indicated below. One reviewer said: ‘One of the strengths of this overall project is its bringing together of all facets of Bensemann’s incredibly diverse practice that are often kept at arm’s length. …Invaluable on its own terms, the publication gains full force when placed within Simpson’s extended body of work on and around Bensemann, offering one of this country’s most sustained and forceful models of art historical investigation.

  • Moonshadows: Conventional Truth in Buddhist Philosophy

    The doctrine of the two truths--a conventional truth and an ultimate truth--is central to Buddhist metaphysics and epistemology. The two truths (or two realities), the distinction between them, and the relation between them is understood variously in different Buddhist schools and is of special importance to the Madhyamaka school. The fundamental ideas are articulated with particular force by Nagarjuna (2nd--3rd century CE) who famously claims that the two truths are identical to one another, and yet distinct. One of the most influential interpretations of Nagarjuna's difficult doctrine derives from the commentary of Candrakirti (6th century CE). While much attention has been devoted to explaining the nature of the ultimate truth in view of its special soteriological role, less has been paid to understanding the nature of conventional truth, which is often described as "deceptive," "illusion," or "truth for fools." But conventional truth is nonetheless truth. This book therefore asks, "what is true about conventional truth?" and "What are the implications of an understanding of conventional truth for our lives?"
