2011 Reprint of 1926 Edition. Full facsimile of the original edition, not reproduced with Optical Recognition Software. Profusely illustrated with 35 full page illustrations. Until recently an appreciation of Fulcanelli's 'The Mystery of the Cathredals' has been restricted to a few esotoric circles. Fulcanelli himself remains something of an enigma. Born in Paris circa 1877, Fulcanelli's magnum opus was first published in 1926 in a limited edition of 300 copies. It has attracted interest ever since - even though viewed askance by the more orthodox interpreters of Church history and architecture. Fulcanelli's book celebrates the 'hermetic' or 'masonic' mysteries enshrined in the great European cathedrals at once concealed and revealed within the very facade of stone text. Fulcanelli devotes much attention to the facade of the Notre Dame de Paris, but what he had to say is true of all great European cathedrals, designed and built by master-masons who had access to the hermetic tradition.

He was known as the 'Raphael of flowers' and rightly so: Pierre-Joseph Redoute (1759-1840) devoted himself exclusively to the task of capturing the diversity of the flowering plants in naturalistic watercolor paintings. He worked in Paris as a botanical illustrator for rich and influential patrons for nearly half a century, during which he documented remarkable, rare plants and flora new to the science of his day. Nearly all of his watercolors were published as copper engravings in large formats and launched on the market with botanical descriptions as sumptuously designed publications in small editions that are today extremely rare and superlative collector's items. "The Choix des plus belles fleures et quelques branches des plus beaux fruits" ("Selection of the Most Beautiful Blooms and Branches with the Finest Fruits"), issued in 36 parts between 1827 and 1833 is a late work of Redoute's, in which he published 144 hand-colored stipple engravings of his best representations of flora in revised form along with a few novelty items. It conveys a glimpse of the long-vanished magnificence of the greenhouses and gardens in and around Paris which delighted the elite of France in the first part of the 19th century.

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2009 im Fachbereich Politik - Internationale Politik - Thema: Völkerrecht und Menschenrechte, einseitig bedruckt, Note: 1,3, Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München (Recht als Nebenfach), Veranstaltung: Völkerrecht, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: 1.) Der Cowboy und die Bombe According to some of those who observed him in his nineteenth-century habitats, the cowboy was a reckless fellow. [ ] Indeed, the very word cowboy has become synonymous with recklessness, and in twentieth-century America cowboy politicians [ ] are those who earned their labels by the employment of unorthodox procedures designed to yield great rewards, but at great risk to fame and fortune. Genau diese recklessness wird dem Zuschauer von Stanley Kubricks Dr. Strangelove in satirischer Art und Weise vorgeführt, verkörpert durch die leicht dümmlich wirkende Art des Major T.J. King Kong, der die Atombombe reitet . Die USA haben eine Atombombe abgeworfen und damit effektiv zur Kapitulation Japans beigetragen, gegen alle Widrigkeiten und unter vollem Einsatz. Die Bereitschaft, nicht zurückzuschrecken und im Namen einer Überzeugung bis ans Äußerste zu gehen, ist die eine, durch und durch metaphorische, Seite der Medaille. Interessant ist jedoch, dass auch die andere Seite der Medaille metaphorisch zu verstehen ist: Die Atombombe mit dem Namen Little Boy wurde aus dem B-29 Bomber Enola Gay geworfen, benannt nach der Mutter des Flugzeugpiloten Paul Tibbets. Und ähnlich wie Enola Gay Paul Tibbets in die Welt geworfen hat, so wirft das Flugzeug die Atombombe in die Welt, als Ausgeburt eines neuen Zeitalters, einer Zäsur. Eines wird deutlich: Wie man es, im wahrsten Sinne des Wortes, dreht und wendet, die internationale Gemeinschaft sieht sich seit dem 06. August 1945 mit einer neuen Gefahrensituation konfrontiert, der sie nicht gewachsen ist. In diesem Kontext ist es von himmelschreiender Ironie, dass die Situation durch Albert Einstein, dessen Fortschritte im physikalischen Bereich effektiv zum Bau der Atombombe beigetragen haben, diese neue Situation in einem Aphorismus genau auf den Punkt bringt: Ich weiß nicht, womit die Menschen im 3. Weltkrieg kämpfen werden, aber im 4. werden es Keulen und Steine sein. Dass es nicht soweit gekommen ist verdanken wir nicht nur dem politischen Feinsinn und diplomatischen Geschick, hier insbesondere der US-Administration, sondern in erster Linie einem völkerrechtlichen Vertrag: Dem Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty . Dieser Vertrag aus dem Jahre 1968 unternimmt den schwierigen Versuch, der neuen Bedrohung Herr zu werden.

Bachelor Thesis from the year 2012 in the subject Business economics - Miscellaneous, grade: 1, University of Applied Sciences Kufstein Tirol, language: English, comment: Die Benotung erfolgt prozentual und entspricht für diese Arbeit 93 % und ist damit unter den 3 besten des Jahrgangs. , abstract: This work examines the relationship between education and excessive confidence in situations of uncertainty. For this purpose, a questionnaire with 10 pseudo general knowledge questions was designed, whereby their degree of difficulty exceeds the knowledge of an average student by far. It was investigated whether subjects (N = 535) would acknowledge this condition and its associated nescience. If that is the case, they will answer the 10 questions within an extremely wide confidence interval in order to meet the predefined 90% accuracy requirement. The focus of investigation was in Southern Germany, as the school system regularly receives top marks in national educational rankings. The data analysis resulted in the stochastic proof that there are significant differences between the various educational institutions in accuracy and overconfidence.In addition to the empirical study the paper defines the distortion of judgment and identifies its relevant factors. It gives a detailed explanation of the German education system and states the criticism of the concept of overconfidence. The paper concludes with a recommendation for action and ventures a look ahead.------------------------Diese Arbeit untersucht den Zusammenhang zwischen Bildung und übermäßigem Selbstvertrauen in Situationen von Ungewissheit. Dazu wurde ein Fragebogen mit 10 Quasi-Allgemeinwissensfragen entwickelt, wobei deren Schwierigkeitsgrad das Wissen eines durchschnittlichen Schülers bei Weitem übersteigt. Es wurde untersucht, ob die Probanden (N=535) diesen Zustand und ihre damit verbundene Unwissenheit anerkennen und zur Beantwortung der 10 Fragen, innerhalb eines vorgegebenen 90% Konfidenzintervalls, jenen Vertrauensbereich möglichst weit wählen, um die Anforderungen zu erfüllen. Der Fokus der Untersuchung lag in Süddeutschland, da das dortige Schulsystem regelmäßig Bestnoten im nationalen Bildungsvergleich erhält. Die Datenauswertung resultiert in der Erbringung des stochastischen Beweises, dass es zwischen den Bildungseinrichtungen einen signifikanten Unterschied beim Schätzverhalten und der damit verbundenen Vertrauens-Hypertrophie gibt.Neben der empirischen Untersuchung definiert die Arbeit den Begriff des übermäßigen Selbstvertrauens und benennt die relevanten Einflussfaktoren. Das deutsche Bildungssystem wird dabei ebenso beleuchtet, wie die Kritik am Konzept der Heuristik. Die Abhandlung endet mit einer Handlungsempfehlung und einem Ausblick in die Zukunft.

Management - The Essence of the Craft Campus Verlag GmbH

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Author's Preface to the English Edition 2010 In this book I am presenting a new kind of management for a new kind of world. It is my concept of right and good management for functioning organizations in functioning societies of exceeding complexity. The need for such a concept arises because conventional management - by which, basically, I mean the US-type management theory and practice now applied worldwide - has come to its very limits as it is unable to deal with the consequences of its own success. The result of its tremendous achievements is a world of inextricably interrelated dynamic systems which are incomprehensibly complex. This has largely been ignored by the dominating US management approach because it was never designed for such conditions. It now fails exactly for this reason, thereby causing the present crisis. I have actually been predicting this for years in many of my publications, including the German version of this book which was first published in 2005. The fact that success almost inevitably breeds its own failure is often overlooked, although it is well known in many fields and in particular in those that accept complexity explicitly as their research subject such as biology or ecology. Albert Einstein already remarked that one cannot solve problems with the same methods which produced them. Failure to manage complexity as the major cause of the worldcrisis What, at present, a majority - at least in the West - considers to be a mere financial crisis can probably be much better understood if it is looked at from an altogether different perspective: the failure to understand and manage complexity. Business and society seem to be undergoing one of the most fundamental transformations in history. Only on the surface, and only if perceived in conventional categories, do present changes appear to be financial and economic in nature. What is happening might better be understood as an Old World dying because a New World is being born. There will hardly be any bridges back to the old state of affairs. Perhaps the most practical premise to navigate by is that whatever can change will change. If so, we are witnessing no less than the almost complete collapse of the formerly so efficient US management approach, which was developed mainly in the context of business administration and taught in business schools as the ultimate wisdom with regard to the running of corporations in a world where its premises applied to an ever lesser degree. Its realities have already been changing for quite some time but this went largely unnoticed because most people tend to see only the old familiar patterns in the new realities. We are experiencing in particular the failure of the US-type of corporate governance and the kind of top management which is dominated almost exclusively by financial variables only. We see the collapse of the shareholder value approach, which due to its short term profit orientation is largely ignoring the customer and is hostile to future-oriented investing and innovating, thereby systematically misdirecting the allocation of societal resources. The failure of the US-approach is, among other aspects, the consequence of mistaking financial investment for real investment, thereby undermining the former strengths of the US-economy, of confusing mountains of bad debts with sustainable wealth, and of failing to distinguish between healthy and pathological growth. Ironically, what collapsed first was the financial system which appeared to be the most highly developed and sophisticated system ever designed. It was believed to be free of systemic risk by most experts and run by the world's most excellent executives educated in what were thought to be the best universities and business schools worldwide. However, complex systems have properties and laws of their own. Their driving forces - if systematically ignored - make them inevitably go out of control. Such systems are incomputable and unpredictable in principle and incomprehensible to the conventionally educated mind. They are non-linear, self-dynamic and continuously self-changing and self-restructuring in unforeseeable ways. They are largely self-organizing and self-regulating. Nevertheless, they can be - up to a degree - controlled and regulated albeit only by a fundamentally different kind of thinking, a new approach for managing complexity and by applying the right methods and tools which are the subject of this book and its companion volumes. Reliable Functioning by Wholistic Management Systems Economic and financial measures on the macro level alone will hardly cure the crisis. What it takes on the level of societal institutions is a new way of functioning which is described in my six volume series Management: Mastering Complexity in which I present my Malik Wholistic General Management Systems. This first volume contains an overview of the system as a whole whereas the other five volumes will describe the constitutive parts of the system. The second volume "Corporate Policy and Governance: How Organizations Self-Organize", was published in 2008 in German and will be available in English soon. The third volume on strategy is still due in 2010. The remaining three volumes will be dedicated to the new structure for functioning complex organizations, their appropriate culture and the kind of executives who have to be able to understand and master complexity. Together these six volumes will contain the essence of the most comprehensive General Management System worldwide. To the best of my knowledge my Wholistic General Management Systems are globally the only ones explicitly designed to ensure reliable functioning under conditions of exceedingly high and dynamic complexity. For this reason and because my Management Systems are universally applicable conventional business administration plays a limited role in my book. For practical reasons, however, I am going to illustrate the application of my systems mainly in the context of the business enterprise. Familiar concepts and terms are left unchanged wherever possible in order to avoid confusion for the practitioner whereas their meaning and most contents are new and different. The important new knowledge for mastering complex systems does not come from economics or business administration but from what I call the Complexity Sciences, i.e. Systemics, Bionics and Cybernetics, which can also be called the Sciences of Functioning. For the term "Functioning" I often use the synonym "Right and Good Management" as opposed to wrong and bad management. By this I want to point to the need to understand management as a true profession with its own standards of craftsmanship as indicated in the subtitle of this book. If the institutions of today's and more so of tomorrow's societies are supposed to function, management needs to liberate itself from fashions and fads and has to become a profession of the same status as for example the profession of the surgeon, the aircraft pilot or the lawyer all of which have as a matter of course their standards of professionalism. The foundation for a profession of effective management for functioning institutions is to be found in my earlier book Managing Performing Living. My General Management Systems - with the support of the experts of my own organization - have been developed, tested and implemented in numerous cases over more than 30 years in all sorts of institutions in business and non-business areas mostly in Europe and particularly in the German speaking world including their worldwide subsidiaries. What works in the complexities of these areas will almost certainly work worldwide. Having discussed the structure, functioning principles and effects of my systems with tens of thousands of executives of all levels I have strong arguments that there is only one kind of management that works effectively, namely Right and Good Management as I present it in my books, and that it is - contrary to mainstream thinking - universally valid and culturally invariant. Fashionable arbitrariness which so often characterizes management should not be given any place in what is one of the most important social functions. In most respects my Wholistic Management Systems for Functioning are the opposite of what is taught in most business schools. That they will have to change fundamentally as a consequence of the global crisis is hesitatingly becoming apparent to some - among them also a few leading ivy league schools. But it might be a long and hard way for them to recover from the fallacies of their own teachings and partly from the application of wrong management to themselves. At the same time, however, if they manage to change radically and fast it is one of the greatest opportunities for them to show effective leadership in the service of a functioning society in times of great change. Fredmund Malik St. Gallen, January 2010 Introduction "The very first step toward success in any occupation is to become interested in it." Sir William Osler (1849 - 1919), physician Our increasingly complex world cannot function without management, and it can hardly function without precise management. This is true for all kinds of societal institutions, be it commercial enterprises or other organizations. The purpose of this book is to help their managers and employees fulfill their demanding occupational tasks in a professional manner. In the midst of a jumble of doctrines, ideologies, and true innovations, this book will provide the overview required to distinguish right from wrong and useful from useless. These distinctions are indispensable for meeting both individual and shared responsibilities at each stage of a professional career. They are also crucial for successful and productive interaction. This book is a compact compendium for right and good management - for general management - in that it provides the necessary overview of what it entails. In the following volumes of this series, each of the elements of right and good management will be described in greater detail, including both theoretical content and recommended implementation approaches. Interested readers will be able to familiarize themselves with the tools and practices of the craft, along with numerous practical examples. As such, the present book is a prelude to a practical, comprehensive guide to what the management craft and managerial professionalism must entail. Sound general management is not about doing something new, modern, or fashionable. What matters is that it is right, that it works, and that it helps practitioners fulfill their tasks to the best of their abilities. The subject of this book - and of the rest of my publications - is not the "management thinking of today". Rather, all my books are practical guides to effectiveness. They point out my personal opinions on different matters, which are often not in sync with mainstream thinking. Management. The Essence of the Craft continues, enlarges upon, and complements my book Managing Performing Living. While the latter deals with the conduct and actions of the individual manager, the present book goes much further in that it deals with the institution as a whole - with system-oriented general management. The book contains a series of propositions which, compared to mainstream thinking, may be regarded as provocative, unusual, and frequently even wrong - at least initially. In this book, and the books to follow, I am putting my arguments forward for discussion. Central Propositions 1.Management is society's most important function. The functioning of society depends on management. Only management turns resources into results. 2.Management can largely be acquired by learning. It is a profession and a craft. It follows the same rules of professionalism that are known and have proven useful in other professions. Talents are useful but not essential. 3.The only kind of management a person needs to learn is right and good management. Right and good management is universal, invariant, and independent of culture. It is equally valid for all kinds of organizations and all countries. There is no need for international, multicultural, or global management. All effective institutions function in the same way. They employ the same functional principles. 4.Apparent differences are not related to management but to the nature of the different tasks to be fulfilled in different organizations. 5.Not everyone can manage just any organization. This is not due to management skills but to the difference in operational tasks. 6.All managers in all organizations and across all hierarchy levels need the same kind of management skills. Not all, however, need them in the same degree of comprehensiveness and detail. Disregarding this principle leads to a lack of orientation and direction, which, in turn, means the end of communication and function. 7.In my view, most of the management ideas prevailing over the past fifteen years or so are false, misleading, and harmful. This is true in particular for anything related to the doctrine of shareholder value and its consequences - such as value-increasing strategies and a way of thinking that focuses predominantly on financial aspects. The stakeholder approach is equally wrong. 8.The economic difficulties of our time, which I believe will inevitably deepen, are largely due to factors other than political errors. They are results of misguided management, of faulty and poor management. As a result, the question as to what right and good management is gains all the more importance. A Word on the Terms Used In management - as opposed to other, more advanced and mature disciplines of learning - there is no such thing as uniform or common parlance. Quite to the contrary: most authors attempt to impress readers by inventing their own terms and slogans. This is a roadblock to progress and to acquiring management skills. For this book, I essentially draw on the terms used in the St. Gallen Management Model, the first and so far only wholistic, system-driven management model, as well as on the linguistic usage of Peter F. Drucker, the doyen of management theory. As far as cybernetics and system sciences are concerned, I draw on the terms used by Stafford Beer, the originator of management cybernetics, and my own book Strategie des Managements komplexer Systeme ["Strategy for the Management of Complex Systems"]. 1.The terms "company", "organization", and "institution" are largely used in the same sense. Certain variances in meaning relate to the degree of generality, or the special limitation to a segment of society. The most general terms are "institution" and "organization". They refer to all organizations existing in a society, no matter what kind or legal form. The term "company", in essence, belongs to the business sector. Whenever no specific pointers are provided, it will be clear from the context what I mean when using each of these terms. The term most frequently used in this book is "company" and other terms related to it, such as "corporate policy". The statements made will generally be applicable to all kinds of institutions. Depending on the field of usage, the terms might need to be adapted somewhat, as in "educational policy" or "health policy". 2.The term "management" itself can be understood in several ways: Firstly, as a function that exists in any kind of organization and is indispensable for its functioning. This is the so-called functional dimension of management. It is neither linked to specific persons nor to organizational elements. This function is not perceptible to our senses. It is incorporated in certain actions taken by individuals and in this way its impact is perceived. Secondly, the term "management" can be understood to be the sum of the legal and/or organizational authorities in an institution. Examples include the executive board of a private company, the executive committee of a public company, a national government, or a university's board of directors. This is referred to as the institutional dimension, and it also includes expanded boards of managers, group management, management circles, or partners' conferences. As far as mandatory and/or higher-level authorities are concerned, the respective responsibilities, rights, obligations, and accountabilities are governed by laws, articles of incorporation, or statutes. Those of other organizational entities are determined by common sense and habits. Thirdly, management can be understood to include the persons that belong to the institutional authorities mentioned. This is the personal dimension of management. In particular the terms "top management" and "top manager" frequently carry that meaning. 3.I use the term "management" in the same meaning as its German equivalent "Führung". Both terms mean the same. In all my German-language publications, I use the two terms synonymously. By contrast, the terms "management" and "leadership" do not mean the same. 4.In the chapter on structure, the term "organization" carries two different meanings: the first, as mentioned above, is what we refer to when we speak of an institution being an organization; the second is what we mean when we speak of an institution having an organization. Which one of the two meanings applies should be clear from the particular context.

Opis - TRANSLATED BY RICHARD PEVEAR AND LARISSA VOLOKHONSKY. Consumed by the idea of his own special destiny, immured in poverty and deprivation, Rashkolnikov is drawn to commit a terrible crime. In the aftermath, Rashkolnikov is dogged by madness, guilt and a calculating detective, and a feverish cat-and-mouse game unfolds. The only hope for redemption, if Rashkolnikov can but recognise it, lies in the virtuous and faithful Sonya.

Much has been written and said about Nowa Huta, though usually pejoratively. The time has come to perceive Nowa Huta without prejudice, to see what it really is: a large, well-designed city, where, despite the constantly increasing number of cars, there are no traffic jams and the housing projects are swathed in greenery. Nowa Huta...s housing projects were designed by the greatest architects of Poland. No expense was spared on talent, money and hard work in creating first-rate architecture. Let us be honest: residing in Nowa Huta is like driving a Rolls-Royce among Trabants and Small Fiats. Its centre has been placed on a heritage list and regardless of the future destiny of Nowa Huta, it will remain a legend for ever. You can hate it, you can be fascinated with it; however, one thing is certain, you cannot remain indifferent to it and it is worth discovering Nowa Huta for oneself. This guidebook is a tale of the myth of Nowa Huta, and at the same time a description of walking tours and bicycle routes around the town and its vicinity. O Nowej Hucie pisano dużo, często i z reguły nie najlepiej. Pora więc bez uprzedzeń spojrzeć na Nową Hutę, by zobaczyć to, czym jest naprawdę: dużym, dobrze zaprojektowanym miastem, gdzie mimo ciągle rosnącej liczby samochodów nie ma korków, a budynki toną w zieleni. Jej osiedla są dziełem najlepszych polskich architektów. Nie szczędzono tu talentu, pieniędzy i solidnej pracy, by nadać architekturze wysoki poziom. Powiedzmy sobie szczerze - mieszkać w Nowej Hucie to jak jeździć rolls-royce...em pośród trabantów i maluchów. Jej centrum zostało wpisane do rejestru zabytków i niezależnie od tego, jak potoczą się losy Nowej Huty, pozostanie ona już na zawsze legendą. Można jej nienawidzić, można się nią fascynować, jedno wszakże jest pewne: nie sposób pozostać obojętnym i warto odkrywać Hutę dla siebie. Przewodnik jest wartką gawędą o micie Nowej Huty, a zarazem opisem spacerów pieszych i wycieczek rowerowych po mieście i jego okolicach. Maciej Miezian - historyk sztuki, publicysta; beznadziejnie zakochany w Nowej Hucie, którą uważa za najpiękniejszą część Krakowa. Swoim poglądom dawał upust na antenie radiowej i telewizyjnej oraz w licznych publikacjach (m.in. Nie od razu Nową Hutę zbudowano, Kraków 2002, czy cyklicznych esejach ukazujących się w "Głosie nowohuckim"). Przez kilka lat był kustoszem Dworku Jana Matejki w Krzesławicach oraz pracownikiem Zespołu ds. powołania Muzeum Nowej Huty i HTS.
