Welcome to ICEA

Since the inception of modern anthropology, considerations of how human biology and natural ecology impact on human thought, behaviour, social structures and cultural expression have always occupied a central position in the discipline. However, the past decade has witnessed advances in the evolutionary and cognitive sciences that offer new opportunities to bridge the gap between social, cognitive and biological anthropology, placing them closer together than at any time in their respective histories. ICEA is also home to a well-established research cluster in cognitive anthropology known as the Centre for Anthropology and Mind (CAM). Current research projects include ‘Ritual, Community, and Conflict’, supported by a Large Grant from the ESRC, and ‘Religion’s Impact on Human Life: Integrating Proximate and Ultimate Perspectives’, funded by the John Templeton Foundation.

COMPOST

COMPOST

1)      An introduction to the religious philosophy of cognitive, evolutionary and biological development of living organisms in a Gaia paradigm.

2)      Ideas need time to germinate, ruminate; circulate.

That’s what weed, hash and black do:

They allow ideas to circulate.

3)      A plan for the foundation of the Newport Robin Hoods

1) An introduction to the religious philosophy of cognitive, evolutionary and biological development of living organisms in a Gaia paradigm.

Philosophy is the art form of appreciation. It is the art of hearing, of seeing and of thinking.

Philosophy is concerned with life the world and the universe and so engenders a cultivated intellectual appreciation of all things natural and normal.

2) Ideas need time to circulate.

Like leaves in a compost pile, ideas must lay dormant, in close proximity with each other, so that they may charge each other at an atomic level.

Then just as we must stir the compost we must stimulate the flow of ideas with fresh study.  In this way the fermentation will have occurred and new ideas may emerge.

3) A plan for the foundation of the Newport Blazers.

 

The team will be the Nova United under 7’s.

Extra talent will be scouted from three local primary schools heads of school permitting.

A grant from McDonalds football grant scheme will be sought and not exceed £2,000.

I have got use of a good picth and a basketball court with hockey sized goals in at norbroom.

£2,000 will be spent on petrol and transport to and from games, training and extra-curricular activities. Community work will form a part of training.
