from the Author: Jordan Ellenberg. Математика — це не просто послідовність обчислень, які потрібно зубрити, поки у вас не забракне сил, як вам могло здатися в школі. Професор Джордан Елленберґ доводить, що увесь наш світ пронизаний математикою. Вона демонструє його приховану красу та логіку й має прямий стосунок до нашого щоденного життя. Автор показує, як проблеми в політиці, медицині, бізнесі, богослов’ї вирішуються за допомогою математики. А ще математично пояснює, за скільки часу потрібно приїжджати в аеропорт, чим є насправді «громадська думка», чому у високих батьків низькі діти, як виграти в лотерею та безліч інших речей.

from the Author: Susan Cain. Кілька століть нам нав’язували ідеальний образ людини — комунікабельної, харизматичної, енергійної, — мовляв, саме ці риси — запорука успіху. Тому й не дивно, що більшість переступила через себе, намагаючись відповідати цьому взірцеві. Сьюзен Кейн вважає, що час скинути маски, і на численних прикладах з політики, бізнесу, освіти, громадського та культурного життя розповідає, у чому криється потенціал тихих людей. Кейн сама інтроверт, тому щиро ділиться порадами, як здобути успіх на роботі і в особистому житті, при цьому залишаючись самим собою.

Karl Popper And The Two New Secrets Of Life from the Author: Hans-Joachim Niemann. Karl Popper's lecture A New Interpretation of Darwinism given at the Royal Society London in 1986 is here printed for the first time in the original. In it, Popper denies the creative power of blind chance and natural selection. Instead of these two Darwinian dogmas he establishes knowledge and activity of all organisms as the creative driving forces of evolution. Hans-Joachim Niemann unearths biographical details about the year 1936 when Popper's biological thoughts were inspired by a meeting with some scientists of the avant-garde of molecular biology. He then focusses on the year 1986 when Popper, in several lectures, summarized the results of his life-long biological thinking. After that Niemann discusses Popper's philosophy of biology in the light of new results of molecular biology that apparently supports his endeavour to overcome some gloomy aspects of Darwinism. How the new creative forces knowledge and activity came into existence is still a secret and a worthwhile research programme.

John Dewey from the Author: Richard Pring. Bertrand Russell's History of Philosophy refers to Dewey as 'generally admitted to be the leading living philosopher of America'. This honourable mention lay partly in his pragmatic theory of meaning, through which so many baffling philosophical problems were claimed to have been solved – as well as educational ones. It is in connection with his educational ideas, however, that Dewey became either famous or infamous. In the United States he had been seen both as saviour of American education by those who welcomed a more child-centred curriculum, and yet as 'worse than Hitler' by those who saw his ideas as undermining traditional education – an accusation shared by his detractors in Britain. This account seeks to bring together Dewey's educational thinking and its frequently forgotten foundations in a pragmatic theory of meaning. In so doing, the book seeks to show that John Dewey is 'a philosopher of education for our time'.

The Good Atheist from the Author: Dan Barker. How Does an Atheist Respond to the Question, What Is the Purpose of Life? For a Christian, it is faith that gives their life purpose. In his best-selling book The Purpose Driven™ Life: What on Earth Am I Here For?, Rick Warren says, “You must begin with God. You were born by his purpose and for his purpose.” But as a non-believer, your purpose resides in yourself; it is yours alone to discover and develop. It’s about choosing to live your own life for your own reasons. No one can dictate your purpose. You decide. This book will help you understand and appreciate why freely choosing to help and cooperate with others is the true path to finding purpose. Life does not need purpose: Purpose needs life. To punctuate this point, The Good Atheist includes inspiring biographies of humanity’s true heroes—men and women who did not waste their lives as slaves to a God, but rather found purpose in enhancing life on this Earth for all of us.

Separation Assimilation Or Accommodation Contrasting Ethnic Minority Policies from the Author: Terrence E. Cook. Ethnic violence is rampant, but avoidable. Cook compares and contrasts all major options in ethnic minority policy, including forms of separation, assimilation, or accommodation typically favored by subordinate ethnic groups. Topics include segregation and genocide, emigrations and secessionist struggles, attempts at cultural annihilation, assimilating for individual or collective opportunities, accommodations as minimal concessions in such things as tolerance, special group rights or power-sharing, and accommodations as maximal demands on those same themes. Grounded in current concrete examples, Cook's analysis brings coherence to a confused and often lethal political problem.
