Mannheim, Germany (PRWEB) July 19, 2012
ScienceIndex.com is a Philosophy Sciences Social Network established in 1998 to index the very latest news, headlines, references and resources from science journals, books and websites worldwide. The site covers news in all fields of biology, business, chemistry, engineering, geography, health, mathematics and society. In the field of Social Sciences, the site has now included the two new categories Literature and Philosophy. While the Literature category covers literary work and production of writings of a specific language, period, people, and particular subjects, the Philosophy category covers the truths and principles of being, knowledge, and conduct.
ScienceIndex.com's Social Society Section covers the totality of social relationships among humans. Its twelve subsections include Anthropology, Archaeology, Arts, Education, Family, History, Law and Crime, Linguistics, Literature, Philosophy, Politics and Religion.

ScienceIndex.com's Literature category covers literary work and production of writings of a specific language, period, people, and particular subjects. It currently contains 2,392 articles partly derived from 123 scientific journals. The latest articles in this category are also available through a Literature Sciences RSS feed. One of the latest additions in this category unites theories of framing, collective memory and a sociological concept of icons in order to examine how icons can represent a frame of a historic event over time in journalism. This article on Counterrevolutionary Icons focuses on the central Hungarian communist daily Népszabadság's 3 years of coverage of the 1956 Hungarian revolution against the Soviet Union. Another recently published article in this category asks what digital games and literacy have in common. It's authors argue that digital games and school-based literacy practices have much more in common than is reported in the research literature. This knowledge will assist teachers and practitioners in capitalizing on pupils’ existing gaming literacy by connecting their out-of-school gaming literacy practices to the literacy and English curriculum.
ScienceIndex.com's Philosophy category covers the truths and principles of being, knowledge, and conduct. It currently contains 3,725 articles partly derived from 80 scientific journals. The latest articles in this category are also available through a Philosophy Sciences RSS feed. One recently included article in this category discusses Roosevelt, Wilson, and the democratic theory of national progressivism. Based on the work of Theodore Roosevelt and Woodrow Wilson, the article explores this tension and makes some preliminary suggestions as to how it might be reconciled into a single democratic theory. Another article discusses Montesquieu's natural rights constitutionalism. The authors argue that Woodrow Wilson feared that revolution would eventuate in the establishment of a despotism, and so he gently, quietly promoted unobtrusive reform.
