لا شك أن الجائحة أدخلتنا في حاله من التخبط والشك والخوف والهلع قادتنا الى حالة يصعب تشخيصها كونها أصبحت من ضمن الاضطرابات الحديثة التي توجب تعريفها بكلمات علمية جديدة وإدخالها الى قاموس التعريفات العلمية للإضرابات السلوكية والعقلية والنفسية. فقد فقدنا قدرتنا على التفكير المنطقي والعقلاني واختلطت الأمور أمامنا واندفعت مشارعنا باحثين عن ملجأ وعون لنا...

English: The title of the contribution I am presenting may appear high-sounding as if hiding a particular role that characterize certain communities; neither is it an example of successful stories. My definition is in accordance with the Catholic patriarchs of the HL in their letter in 1997, in which they described the “incarnation as a real incar...

Chapter
Per la sua contemporaneità, il rilievo della pedagogista palestinese Jacqueline Sfeir, si propone come uno studio tendenzialmente pilota e solo introduttivo di un personaggio che in vita è “rimasto nell’ombra”, e può essere oggetto di ricerca di un personaggio rientrante nella categoria dei “Nemo propheta in patria”. Solo dopo la sua scomparsa è sc...
