... intelligence ( EI ) The measure of an individual’s awareness of and capacity to manage their emotions and the emotions of others through effective relationship management. Popularized by Daniel Goleman, emotional intelligence enables someone to recognize their own emotions and the emotions of others and to use this understanding to manage and guide their behaviours to suit the situation and their goals. Goleman identified two components to EI—what can be described as ‘traits’, a disposition in some people for higher levels of EI, and an ability to...

...non-existence. Here James confirms the right of this man to believe in the existence of God relying on what his emotional nature indicates about this subject. . . . But the question which comes to our mind is, why do we give the question of religion this preference and privilege to the point of excepting it from the comprehensive moral principle which governs the operation and content of certainty? . . . Harmonizing our opinions with our emotional nature cannot form acceptable justification for our belief in these opinions, not if we wish to have studied...

...responsibilities. For obvious biological reasons, a primary responsibility for the woman is child-bearing. The child-bearing responsibility is of grave importance: human exist-ence depends upon it. This responsibility requires a great deal of physical strength, stamina, intelligence, and deep personal commitment. Yet, while this responsibility is so obvious and important, what is the responsibility of the male in this family and society at large? For simple balance and justice in creation, and to avoid oppression, his responsibility must be equally...

...torpor. The most effective of these causes are the great national events which are daily taking place, and the encreasing accumulation of men in cities, where the uniformity of their occupations produces a craving for extraordinary incident which the rapid communication of intelligence hourly gratifies. In this passage Wordsworth sketches the historical geography of his Romanticism. Paris and the *French Revolution , London and the *war [2] with France: these scenes and events are Wordsworth's emblems of dislocation. To live in their midst is to...

...enough to interpret what has been said; the secondary Hos 14:9 is a similar, though more positive comment. 8:1 b has no obvious relevance to what precedes, or, despite Fox ( 1989 ) , to what follows. Elsewhere, the shining of a face expresses contentment or favour, not intelligence, and is used of God (e.g. Num 6:26 ), while the LXX legitimately understands the second clause to mean ‘and the man shameless in his face will be hated’. If the saying originally followed straight after 7:29 , we might read: ‘A human's wisdom makes him (God) favourable, but...

...Elihu boasts, my knowledge is both accurate and sound ( tāmîm ). ( 36:5–15 ) The twofold use of the adjective ‘mighty’ ( kābbîr ), together with another word for strength ( kōaḥ ), in v. 5 demonstrates Elihu's theological starting-point. God is great! When sovereignty and intelligence join hands, as here, one has truly happened upon the best of all possible worlds. Elihu offers a subtle hint of another dimension, compassion, for he claims that God does not reject ( mā᾽ as …). This verb has no object and therefore it must be supplied by readers. Presumably,...

...( 3:1–4:11 ) to the ‘request’ section ( 4:12–6:10 ). However, the link between the emotional personal appeals of v. 11 and the entreaties in vv. 12 and 19–20 makes it preferable to align 4:12–20 closely with the preceding verses. In v. 12 Paul opens this section with a term of endearment, ‘friends’, which he has not used since 3:15 ; in v. 19 he refers to the Galatians as his ‘little children’. Although vv. 12–20 have been dubbed an erratic and emotional aside, these verses make explicit Paul's passionate concern for the Galatians, a concern...
