4. Models of depression
Epidemiological studies of depression give important insights into populations at higher risk of depression. For example, the prevalence of depression is higher in groups living in socially adverse conditions, and is higher in those with a recent experience of bereavement. However, not everyone in these circumstances will develop a clinical depression. Theories about the causes of depressive illnesses can help to clarify the reasons for these individual differences. Here, we highlight some of the best-known biological, psychological, and social models and then discuss attempts to integrate these into a multi-dimensional theory.

1. Life, works, and character
The greatest modern philosopher was moved by nothing more than by duty. His life, in consequence, was unremarkable. For Kant, the virtuous man is so much the master of his passions as scarcely to be prompted by them, and so far indifferent to power and reputation as to regard their significance as nothing beside that of duty itself. Having confined his life so that he could act without strain according to this ideal, Kant devoted himself to scholarship, entirely governed by congenial routines. The little professor of Königsberg has thus become the type of the
A Very Short Introduction
3. From Stonehenge to skyscrapers
An understanding of the past is an important influence on the way we approach the future. Through the past we learn for the future. The purpose of this chapter is to generate a sense of history of structure as part of human progression—not to describe lots of factual detail. I shall argue that one of the challenges of the future is to get back to some of the more integrated ways of the past.
