The starting point of my . MA research is a key element of the anthropological research, such as what is diversity and how is possible to deal with it. . The chosen field of analysis is the . Internet, and the question is re-framed accordingly. . After having analysed some of the established approaches, . I articulate my own one, which is based on the concept that the . Internet is what one makes of it in a specific time and space and for specifically designed purposes. . In such a theoretical framework, one has to continuously question the relation message-medium-audience and, upon that, reformulate one’s own theoretical premises, articulations and conclusions with regard to the specific practices related to the enquiry. . The second part of the research is the analysis of one specific articulation of the use one part of the . Iranian political elite makes of the . Internet. . My conclusion is that, among so many other uses . Iranians and their political elites make of the . Internet, one is to arrange distinct communicative policies for a dialogue among civilizations.
The use of plant medicines is present in the lives of people since antiquity. . Many medicinal plants can be fading (human actions) of our forests before being adopted as beneficial to humanity. .

Alter do . Chao, located in the city of . Santarem, the heart of the . Amazon, and internationally known as the . Brazilian . Caribbean. . Thus, this book comes with the intention of awakening the reader, especially the scientific community (bioproespectores, anthropologists, physicians, nurses, pharmacists and biochemists) the appreciation of the importance of breaking paradigms (pre-science and science) as a way of seek dialogue between scientific/modern knowledge with traditional and local knowledge of . Amazonian peoples. . Besides waking anyone else who might be interested and making use of medicinal plants in their daily life regarding the use of these, from the point, that the inappropriate use of plants can lead to poisoning, although these present the possibility of cure of diseases that afflict humanity.

In this sorely needed book, . Rabbi . Schneier and . Imam . Ali challenge . Jews and . Muslims to step out of their comfort zones, find common ground in their shared . Abrahamic traditions, and stand together and fight for a better world for all.
