Nightside 8 Bilder Aus Der Anderwelt from the Author: Oliver Graute. Mein Name ist John Taylor. Ich bin Privatdetektiv in der Nightside, der finsteren, kaputten Stadt im Herzen Londons, wo nie die Sonne scheint und Lust und Schrecken immer zu haben sind - wenn man sie bezahlen kann. Der Herausgeber des Unnatural Inquirer - des berĂĽchtigtsten Schundblatts der Nightside - hat mir eine Million Pfund geboten, wenn ich den Mann finde, der behauptet, Beweise fĂĽr das Leben nach dem Tod auf DVD zu haben. Der Inquirer hat dem Kerl viel Geld geboten. Dann ist er mitsamt der DVD verschwunden. Ich weiĂź nicht, ob das Ding echt ist - aber fĂĽr eine Million Pfund bin ich bereit, es zu glauben. Das Problem ist, dass der Scheibe noch jemand auf der Spur ist - jemand mit sehr viel Macht. Wer auch immer es ist, setzt alles daran, die Aufnahme vor mir zu finden ...

A Logical Theory Of Teaching from the Author: C.J.B. Macmillan. happens, how it happens, and why it happens. Our assumption ought to be that this is as true in education as it is in atomic physics. But this leaves many other questions to answer. The crucial ones: What kind of science is proper or appropriate to education? How does it differ from physics? What is wrong with the prevai1~ ing, virtually unopposed research tradition in education? What could or should be done to replace it with a more adequate tradi tion? What concepts are necessary to describe and explain what we find there? It is in this realm that we find ourselves. Where to start? One place - our place, needless to say - is with one limited but central concept in education, teaching. A long philosophical tradition concerned with the nature of teaching goes back (along with everything else) to Plato, divulging most recent ly in the work of such philosophers as B. O. Smith, Scheffler, Hirst, Komisar, Green, McClellan, Soltis, Kerr, Fenstermacher, et al. An empirical tradition runs parallelto the philosophers -it has its most notable modern proponents in Gage, the Soars, Berliner, Rosen shine, but its roots can be traced to the Sophists. These two tradi tions have been at loggerheads over the centuries.
