Tierney, J.

Фамилия:  Tierney
Имя:  James

James Tierney is a social worker, retired from the Maine Department of Health and Human Services (USA). His personal interest, since retirement, has been in trying to understand the role of violence, as it is used against children by parents who most often love them. By extension, he has engaged studying its corollary – of a culture that professes the wish to survive, yet teeters on the edge of self-destruction. Mr. Tierney is particularly interested in the functionality of public organizations, through which we, humans, contract to govern ourselves. He embraced the notion of Big History many years ago, using a cosmological context for an introductory course in social work that he taught in the late 1970s. He has four sons and nine grand children; he enjoys writing, gardening, biking, skiing and paddling a canoe.
