Spring into Peace

I feel like we've reached the point where Spring finally feels like it is on the way to arriving. With the last week and a half being exceptionally cold it is a welcome relief to finally see some nicer weather. That isn't to say the cold has disappeared and all the snow is melting but it doesn't seem like it is that far off compared to last week.

Leading into this sense of Spring NUPRI is proud to announce the release of a new book by Dr. Toivo Koivukoski and Dr. David Edward Tabachnick titled The Question of Peace in Modern Political Thought. It is a collection of essays devoted to, as the title suggests, the question of peace. At this point I have only had a chance to skim the collection but there is a lot that has immediately grabbed my attention as far as contributors and titles involved. It also should be noted that along with editing the collection Dr's Koivukoski and Tabachnick are also contributors. They have also gathered together work from other Nipissing faculty such as Herminio Teixeira and David Borman. With some perspectives looking at Hegel, Spinoza, Heidegger, Arendt, Rousseau and Kant (among many others) this is a collection  I look forward to getting some time to sit down and immerse myself in.

In addition to the release of a new book NUPRI has released another 3 Vines concerning the definition of peace. Today's Vines include Brandon Salo, Althea-Marie Rivas and Bill Bhaneja. All of these and more can be found on the NUPRI Vine page (as well as on the Twitter page).

Brandon Salo Vine

Althea-Marie Rivas Vine

Bill Bhaneja Vine

More Vines will be out next week. Until then please share what is on our Vine page as much as possible. The more people these definitions reach the greater a discussion we can have about what peace is and what it means to each of us as individuals.
