The tale begins on Christmas Eve in the 1840's, exactly seven years after the death of Ebenezer Scrooge's business partner, Jacob Marley. Scrooge is established within the first stave as a greedy and stingy businessman, who has no place in his life for kindness, compassion, charity or benevolence. After being warned by Marley's ghost to change his ways (so that he may avoid a miserable afterlife like him), Scrooge is visited by three additional ghosts; each in its turn, and each visit detailed in a separate stave, who accompany him to various scenes with the hope of achieving his [...]

Por primera vez la humanidad se encuentra sin un proyecto axiológico colectivo acreditado heteronómicamente y sin un saber adecuado para crearlo. El trabajo se propone hacer una aproximación a la solución de este grave problema intentando formular los principios básicos de un saber sobre el tratamiento y la creación de lo axiológico, es decir construir los fundamentos de una epistemología axiológica.El objetivo de este trabajo es abordar la formalidad de lo valioso-concreto, por tanto axiológico, para ver si es posible formular alguna estructura que pueda resultar una herramienta [...]

The East Japan Earthquake brought great sadness and despair to every part of the place where I was born and grew up. My father also became one of the victims. I would like people reading this book to think what ‘to live’ means, and give consideration to what family bonds mean to their life. Although we were victims of the earthquake, our hearts have carried on without change from before the incident. I don't want people to forget there are still so many people who are suffering in various ways despite this. I would like to express my gratitude again to the people I met at that time.
Three years since the Great East Japan Earthquake, which was a nightmare. This is the diary of a quake survivor who wrote under severe circumstances about the actual situation of the earthquake, activities of the Self-Defense Forces, actions of mass media and the government. It is a unique, devoted, timeless edition describing “How the author felt about the reality of the Great East Japan Earthquake”.
This is a vivid story of Great East Japan Earthquake. Even after I survived from an earthquake, I was wandering between life and death during my life in an evacuation shelter. I have to protect my own life by myself. I have no idea when tsunami would occur again. If worst, I need to live a primitive mode of life. At such time, you will notice that the happiest thing is to spend your daily life under ordinary circumstances. I am confident that this book is an expression deep from my heart for the future. I wish people could raise their awareness concerning education for disaster prevention and [...]
I had been feeling, “I am kept alive, given the power to live”, and in gratitude, always strongly urged myself not to be discouraged by my age, illness. But while receiving a nursing care, I encountered the unprecedented great earthquake disaster once in 1,000 years. My house was completely destroyed, and I experienced the living in a shelter and also in a frame house of a volunteer group, where I was deeply impressed by the volunteer organization, which I hope to take root in Japan, the each member’s spirit, unselfishness, passion, and acts. I was naturally absorbed in [...]
Shaking very hard. Shaking at wherever I go. My body and mind can’t stay calm, but I need to act for the next thing. Unordinary view like some SF film jumps into my eyes, but I still need to think and move. This is what the evacuation is during a catastrophe. How do you protect yourself when you cannot stay calm? Let’s think about the “importance of escaping” together.
"It was tough enough to live in the refuge. And now it's not easy staying upstairs." The expression of the neighbor lady portrayed both the bliss and hardness of living in her own house. There were a lot of people who spent hard days without any utilities after the Great East Japan Earthquake. However, a few people recognized what it was like. I spread out our case on reflection as an example of an ordinary household; how we had gone through without enough commodities in the bitter winter, how we had scraped up our daily necessities. What are the most important, and yet [...]
