Adventure (126 Books)


In fiction, the adventurer figure or Picaro may be regarded as a descendant of the knight-errant of Medieval romance. Like the knight, the adventurer roams through episodic encounters, usually involving wealth, romance, or fighting. Unlike the knight, the adventurer was a realistic figure, often lower class or otherwise impoverished, who is forced to make his way to fortune, often by deceit. Also, an adventurer is a roguish hero of low social class who lives by his or her wits in a corrupt society.

The Hawaiian Language Reprint Series was established by the Hawaiian Historical Society to make available to students and scholars books that were printed in the Hawaiian language during the 19th and early 20th centuries.

Exploration de la personnalité humaine inhérente, susceptible d'être influencée par des facteurs environnementaux, qui sont, eux-mêmes, dynamiques et générationnels. Les deux, combinés, rendent un être humain unique.

Qu’est-ce que l’unicité humaine? D'abord et avant tout, permettez-moi de dire que c'est une question délicate pour le simple fait qu'elle implique tant de facteurs différents. Et puis, il y a le fait que la réponse que vous pourriez donner d'un point de vue personnel (lorsque quelqu'un d'autre vous pose la question à propos de vous-même) sera différente de celle qu'un membre de votre famille ou un pair pourrait donner lorsque quelqu'un d'autre leur pose la question à pro...
