Shanker exposes the confusions underlying the currently prevailing interpretations of Wittgenstein. He shows how such approaches and their underlying critical frameworks are incapable of coming to terms with Wittgenstein's arguments in the philosophy of mathematics. This book explains not only Wittgenstein's approach, which was justly heralded as causing a turning point in the philosophy of mathematics, but also the philosophy of mathematics in general.
Dewey Canyon III ultimately became the turning point that VVAW leaders
predicted, but only after the veterans, through trial and error, discovered a means

The anti-Vietnam War movement in the United States is perhaps best remembered for its young, counterculture student protesters. However, the Vietnam War was the first conflict in American history in which a substantial number of military personnel actively protested the war while it was in progress. In The Turning, Andrew Hunt reclaims the history of the Vietnam Veterans Against the War (VVAW), an organization that transformed the antiwar movement by placing Vietnam veterans in the forefront of the nationwide struggle to end the war. Misunderstood by both authorities and radicals alike, VVAW members were mostly young men who had served in Vietnam and returned profoundly disillusioned with the rationale for the war and with American conduct in Southeast Asia. Angry, impassioned, and uncompromisingly militant, the VVAW that Hunt chronicles in this first history of the organization posed a formidable threat to America's Vietnam policy and further contributed to the sense that the nation was under siege from within. Based on extensive interviews and in-depth primary research, including recently declassified government files, The Turning is a vivid history of the men who risked censures, stigma, even imprisonment for a cause they believed to be "an extended tour of duty."

Micah Hartman and Damon Hall first meet in the frontier river town of Reed’s Landing, Wisconsin in the 1850’s. Micah, the son of one of the town’s leading lumbermen, embodies the West but seeks more from his life than the perpetual cycle of lumbering. Damon, educated at Harvard’s Divinity School, comes to “the Landing” an idealistic young cleric seeking to do God’s will. Despite what they may have planned for their lives, the Civil War gives them different paths to tread. The old friends are united as members of the Seventh Wisconsin—soon to become part of the famous “Iron Brigade”. Micah, an infantryman, and Damon, the Seventh’s chaplain, are forever changed inside the crucible of combat where they are forced to face war’s death, pain, and suffering. After the war, life continues. The men find wives and dream of children. Young men become older men; older men discover regret. It is only after forty years at each other’s side that the truth comes out. An aged ledger appears that casts a shadow of doubt on the integrity of one of these men, and that shadow could forever darken a lifelong friendship.

Have you drift off course in relationship with God? Have you been enticed by Satan's schemes and fallen back into a lifestyle of sin? Do you have a longing in your heart to have close intimate fellowship with God once again? Maybe you are not the one who has turned away from God, but perhaps you know someone who was once in a loving relationship with God, devoted to living life for him, but now have turned their back on God. If you have found yourself in either of these scenarios, then The Turning Point Rebuilding Your Relationship With God is the book for you. The Turning Point- Rebuilding Your Relationship with God addresses some of the enticing schemes that Satan uses to cause believers to become disloyal to God and commit spiritual adultery. It expounds on the dangers of drifting off course and the devastating effects that it can have on one's life. Using biblical examples, it demonstrates the point that even the most devoted Christian can stray away if he or she falls prey to the temptations orchestrated by Satan. It also provides a strategic plan on how a Christian can remain anchored and techniques that they can use to prevent them from falling back into a lifestyle of sin. The Turning Point gives those who may have backslidden, a step by step approach to reaching a turning point and the guidance needed in rebuilding their relationship with God. Finally, this book stresses the role and responsibility that each Christian plays in helping an erring brother or sister return to God.

This manuscript, "The Turning Point -Whena Pleaser of Man Becomes a Servant of the Lord," is a call for believers to stand up to core values and teachings of Christianity in the face of challenges and not to submit to the ways of the world. In the book, I address the current state of affairs, where people have submitted to the demands and expectations of others to shape the way they live. Most often, they have chosen a path away from the virtues taught by Jesus Christ, paralleling the struggles of men and women of our biblical times. I address some of the issues we face on a daily basis such as stress, premarital sex, and the various life roles we must play. In the latter part of the manuscript, I share personal testimonies about my life struggles imparted by the work of the devil, and how I found peace and joy through the salvation of Jesus Christ.In closing, I exhort everyone to check their own lives and live up to the ways of righteousness.

In every person's life, there comes a moment in time when circumstances or events require decisions and responses that greatly determine the future. This book has no design to be another volume on leadership techniques. Rather, it is a candid exploration of those unexpected turns birthed out of the experience of being confronted with a reversal of circumstances in the life of an individual. Frankly, it is a study about the drama of life. The intention of the author is to give a sincere and straightforward examination of why turnabouts often get high-jacked and fail to live up to people's expectations. Even more, individuals will find a plea for courage and faith when things do not occur as they once envisioned they would. Consequently, it is a clarion call for courage to go further than some would desire, but also a caution to impatient leaders to be watchful of their own intentions to push a change further than would be wise. In the end, some leaders must be willing to consider a more contemplative life built on valuing people above their own ideological mindset. Dr. Wallace R. Pratt is an administrator, minister, teacher, and writer. He lives in Salem, Oregon and has been married thirty-eight years to his wonderful wife Judy. They are blessed with two daughters, two great son-in-laws and five grandchildren. Dr. Pratt serves as a regional supervisor in the Northwest for his church organization, while also serving as an adjunct professor for Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary. His leadership experience has included thirty-three years of pastoral ministry and approximately eighteen years of teaching in sixteen nations. He has been serving on the Doctrine and Polity Committee of his church organization for fourteen years and presently holds the position of chairman for this international body.
