Embark on a thrilling international quest to unlock the mysteries of the universe. Sean McQueen is a staid, middle-aged NYU literature professor leading an uneventful life, until he receives a cryptic letter from his intellectually and poetically gifted best friend, Dylan Byrne. Following years of extensive research, Dylan claims that he has discovered "the theory of everything": a revelation that promises to alter man’s view of existence by reconciling science with spirituality. The two men arrange a meeting to discuss the paradigm-shifting theory, but after Dylan never shows, Sean discovers his friend has died under mysterious circumstances and the theory has gone missing. Sean teams up with Dylan’s scientific collaborator, quantum cosmologist Emily Edens, to find the lost theory. Together they embark on the adventure of a lifetime—traveling from the busy streets of New York City to the mystical corners of Kathmandu where Dylan realized his groundbreaking theory. On their quest, they encounter extraordinary allies and fearsome adversaries, including a covert government operative code-named "Guru," who is hell-bent on finding the theory first and preventing Sean and Emily from sharing it with the world. The Lost Theory is an exhilarating adventure of self-discovery, full of magical realism, mystery, and romance, all wrapped up in a story overflowing with wit, intrigue, and a sense of ultimate redemption.
So I decided just to add my Lost theory to my notebook often thousand ideas I would never do anything with. Before I could take that unfortunate step however, I remembered my letdowns with the Star Wars prequels and Matrix sequels.

AS SEEN IN THE NETFLIX DOCUMENTARY THE SOCIAL DILEMMA A WIRED "ALL-TIME FAVORITE BOOK" A FINANCIAL TIMES BEST BOOK "THE CONSCIENCE OF SILICON VALLEY"- GQ “Profound . . . Lanier shows the tactical value of appealing to the conscience of the individual. In the face of his earnest argument, I felt a piercing shame about my own presence on Facebook. I heeded his plea and deleted my account.” - Franklin Foer, The New York Times Book Review “Mixes prophetic wisdom with a simple practicality . . . Essential reading.” - The New York Times (Summer Reading Preview) You might have trouble imagining life without your social media accounts, but virtual reality pioneer Jaron Lanier insists that we’re better off without them. In Ten Arguments for Deleting Your Social Media Accounts Right Now, Lanier, who participates in no social media, offers powerful and personal reasons for all of us to leave these dangerous online platforms. Lanier’s reasons for freeing ourselves from social media’s poisonous grip include its tendency to bring out the worst in us, to make politics terrifying, to trick us with illusions of popularity and success, to twist our relationship with the truth, to disconnect us from other people even as we are more “connected” than ever, to rob us of our free will with relentless targeted ads. How can we remain autonomous in a world where we are under continual surveillance and are constantly being prodded by algorithms run by some of the richest corporations in history that have no way of making money other than being paid to manipulate our behavior? How could the benefits of social media possibly outweigh the catastrophic losses to our personal dignity, happiness, and freedom? Lanier remains a tech optimist, so while demonstrating the evil that rules social media business models today, he also envisions a humanistic setting for social networking that can direct us toward a richer and fuller way of living and connecting with our world.

Dieser Band versammelt ausgewählte Beiträge einer Tagung zum Thema "Fachtexte und Fachsprachen in der Antike", die im März 2004 an der Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin abgehalten wurde. Die kulturhistorische Dimension der Fachtext-Forschung wird am Beispiel unterschiedlicher Ausprägungen der Gattung "Fachtext" in der griechisch-römischen Antike erhellt. Dabei wird der Umgang antiker Fachschriftsteller mit sprachlich-stilistischen (vor allem terminologischen) Aspekten ebenso untersucht wie die pragmatische Ebene von Fachtexten, so z.B. Struktur und Form, Intention und Publikum, die Rolle der Polemik (Selbststilisierung und Kritik von Fachgenossen) und das Verhältnis von Text und Illustration (bildliche Darstellungen, Graphiken, Skizzen). Die Beiträge sind teils auf Deutsch und teils auf Englisch abgefasst.

Money has always represented power. For Aristotle, this power was inseparable from the exercise of justice within a community. This is why issuance of money was the prerogative of the lawful authority (government). Such a view of monetary power was widespread, and includes societies as distant as China. Over the past several centuries, however, private interests increasingly tapped into the exercise of the money power. Through gradual shifts, commercial banks have gained a legally protected right to create money through issuance of debts. The aim of this book is to unravel various layers hiding the real workings of modern money and banking systems and injustices ingrained in them. By asking what money really is, who controls it and for what purpose (why), the book provides insight into understanding of modern money and banking systems, as well as the causes of growing financialization of economies throughout the world, money manias and economic instability. The book also increases the awareness of injustices hidden in the workings of modern money and banking systems and the need for moral underpinnings of such systems. Finally, it suggests a money system which could immensely improve human, economic, and ecological conditions.

Psyche and Soma is a multi-disciplinary exploration of the conceptions of the human soul or mind and body, through the course of more than two thousand years of Western history. Thirteen specially commissioned chapters, each written by a recogized expert, discuss figures such as the physiciansHippocrates, Galen, Stahl, and Cabanis; theologians St Paul, Augustine, and Aquinas; and philosophers from Plato and Aristotle to Descartes, Leibniz, and La Mettrie. The chapters explore in chronlogical sequence the views of these writers on such questions as the soul's immortality, the control itexerts over the body, how mental disturbances arise out of bodily imbalances, and the roles of the priest and the physician in promoting spiritual and mental health. Psyche and Soma will be a key point of reference and a rich source of illumination in this central area of human inquiry.

Following the collapse of the communist states it was assumed that Marxist philosophy had collapsed with it. In Introduction to Non-Marxism, François Laruelle aims to recover Marxism along with its failure by asking the question “What is to be done with Marxism itself?” To answer, Laruelle resists the temptation to make Marxism more palatable after the death of metaphysics by transforming Marxism into a mere social science or by simply embracing with evangelical fervor the idea of communism. Instead Laruelle proposes a heretical science of Marxism that will investigate Marxism in both its failure and power so as to fashion new theoretical tools. In the course of engaging with the material of Marxism, Laruelle takes on the philosophy of Marx along with important philosophers who have extended that philosophy including Althusser, Balibar, Negri as well as the attempt at a phenomenological Marxism found in the work of Michel Henry. Through this engagement Laruelle develops with great precision the history and function of his concept of determination-in-the-last-instance. In the midst of the assumed failure of Marxism and the defections and resentment that followed, Laruelle’s non-Marxism responds with the bold declaration: “Do not give up on theory!”

This comprehensive Understanding treatise provides an introduction to the basic legal rules and principles that constitute the law of remedies as applied by United States courts. The Second Edition of Understanding Remedies represents a major reworking of the original work. The chapters have been reorganized so that the materials follow the customary approach of teaching remedies: (1) General principles applicable to damages, injunctions, and restitution; (2) Remedy defenses; (3) Applications, e.g., bodily injury remedies, breach of contract remedies; (4) Special problems, e.g., punitive damages, attorneys' fees. The materials are comprehensive and respect the nuance and subtlety of the subject. Understanding Remedies presents the richness of the topic to students who wish to gain both a fundamental appreciation of the subject and an insight into the myriad ways remedies influence the shape and dimension of modern American law.

Biography/History/American Humor.The first of six books for an Entertainment and Humor Cycle by the award-winning author David Loye, Brave Laughter is the rousing, witty, and inspiring story of nine generations of an unusual American family. From wildly speculative roots among old European nobility to the booming electronic realities of the early 21st century, through the family stories they passed on from generation to generation unfolds the age-old alternation of comedy and tragedy in the lives of a family distinguished by a fierce independence of mind and a rare gift for story telling.The Early Years covers the stories of the family from a speculative beginning as far back as the Vikings, through colonial times in the New World, the founding and pioneering years for America, to the Civil War. The Lake Settlers focuses on the book's archetypal characters'the widowed wife and five children of the ?the bravest revenue officer? and legendary funny story teller, Moses Tully Sanders, as they move north out of Tennessee and Iowa to settle on a small lake in Minnesota. Though different, at the same time the setting, stories, and adventures of The Lake Settlers are sometimes uncanny real life analogues of Garrison Keillor's Lake Woebegone tales. A third section, The Children of the Lake, tells of the Jazz Age, Depression, World War II, and late 20th century years of the seven radically different children of Moses? son Clarence, the fiercely independent patriarch of his generation. Brave Laughter evokes a haunting sense of the America that once was, but also'through its powerful portrayal and analysis of the nature of humor'a statement of faith in the future. Through the evolution of American humor as a blend of the frontier perspective characterized by Mark Twain and the ancient tradition of Jewish humor that in the 20th century flowered again in America, Brave Laughter not only provides a pioneering tracking of the evolution of American humor but also a new theory for the powerful impact of humor on human evolution.Brave Laughter evokes a haunting sense of the America that once was.

“The animals that one culture likes are often hated in the next, and it seems that the animals themselves know it well. Basically, one culture’s animal partner is often another culture’s nightmare from hell. “Naturally, I wonder how relations between people and animals got to be so different around the world. How did it happen that some cultures treat bats, snakes, wolves, or ravens as embodiments of evil, while other people treat the same animals with affection or even reverence?” Our wars with the animals go way back. Beyond the light cast by our prehistoric campfires, the eyes glowing in the night seemed to represent a great hostile force. As we began to cultivate crops and husband a few favoured animals, we generally regarded other creatures as threats to our chosen few. Using the logic of war, we sought to maximize the populations of certain creatures, and the destruction of others. In the past, that war effort was our great crusade for the advancement of civilization as we knew it. The war had a frontier, a front line, and an ongoing battle on the home front. Expanding outward from our various cradles of civilization, we progressively “tamed” the forests and grasslands, converting them to monocrop plantations or pastures. Then we had to defend our monocrops from encroaching weeds, insects, and wild animals. In this immediately engaging, story- and fact-filled page-turner of a book, Brian Griffith looks at the range of ways we relate to animals and the stories we tell about them. He asks how we choose whether buddyhood, fearful respect, businesslike predation, or genocidal war is the most appropriate response to each species we meet. He watches how our treatment of “inferior beings” affects our treatment of “inferior people,” and traces some of the chain reactions we unleash when we try to weed out species we don’t like. “Without much hope of making animals fit my personal preferences,” he writes, “I wonder how good our relations can get.”
