Sexual function in patients with physical or neurological disabilities is often disregarded by healthcare professionals, though it is a topic of great importance to patients and to those with whom they share significant relationships. Too often, physicians believe that sexuality is not as important as the injury or illness that brought the patient to the rehabilitation team. This book investigates sexual function in persons with neurological disorders, highlighting the importance of proper counselling, diagnosis and treatment.

In Christian’s own words, and through his thoughts, reflections, and dreams, E L James offers a fresh perspective on the love story that has enthralled hundreds of millions of readers around the world. CHRISTIAN GREY exercises control in all things; his world is neat, disciplined, and utterly empty – until the day that Anastasia Steele falls into his office, in a tangle of shapely limbs and tumbling brown hair. He tries to forget her, but instead is swept up in a storm of emotion he cannot comprehend and cannot resist. Unlike any woman he has known before, shy, unworldly Ana seems to see right through him – past the business prodigy and the penthouse lifestyle to Christian’s cold, wounded heart. Will being with Ana dispel the horrors of his childhood that haunt Christian every night? Or will his dark sexual desires, his compulsion to control, and the self-loathing that fills his soul drive this girl away and destroy the fragile hope she offers him?

A father who breaks his promise. Two teenagers running from themselves. A teacher who is too young for the task at hand. Margherita is fourteen and about to step across a magical threshold into her first year of high school. Secure in the knowledge that she can rely on her loved ones for support, Margherita sees high school as a new world to be explored and conquered. But one day when she gets home from school, she receives a voicemail; it is her father letting her know he won’t be coming home again. As she overcomes her sadness, Margherita gradually matures into a woman, the way a pearl forms despite the ocean’s tides. As she travels the difficult path through adolescence, Margherita receives encouragement from her mother, her lively younger brother, and her grandmother Teresa, who knows about love and has wonderful stories to share. Then there is Marta, her cheerful classmate, and Giulio, the somber, handsomest boy in the school. But the most important figure in Margherita’s life is her teacher, a young man still struggling to make his way, yet sensitive to the lessons that literature has to teach his students, who are just beginning to grapple with life’s uncertainties. When he draws Margherita’s attention to the courage of Telemachus in the Odyssey, she sets out on a journey in search of her father. This adventure, though she does not know it yet, will completely change her destiny.

Consciousness is perhaps the most puzzling problem we humans face in trying to understand ourselves. It has been the subject of intense study for several decades, but, despite substantial progress, the most difficult problems have still not reached any generally agreed solution. Future research can start with this book. Eighteen original, specially written essays offer new angles on the subject. The contributors, who include many of the leading figures in philosophy of mind, discuss such central topics as intentionality, phenomenal content, knowledge of mental states, consciousness and the brain, and the relevance of quantum mechanics to the study of consciousness.
Is there an internal relationship between consciousness and intentionality? Can mental content be described in such a way so as to avoid dualism? What is the influence of social context upon consciousness, conceptions of self and mental content? This book considers questions such as these and argues for a conception of consciousness, mental content and intentionality that is anti-Cartesian in its major tenets. Focusing upon the rule governed nature of concepts and the grounding of the rules for concept use in the practical world, intentional consciousness emerges as a phenomena that depends upon social context. Given that dependence, the authors consider and set aside attempts to reduce human consciousness and intentionality to phenomena explicable at biological or neuroscientific levels. (Series A)
