Quantum Theory, together with the principles of special and general relativity, constitute a scientific revolution that has profoundly influenced the way in which we think about the universe and the fundamental forces that govern it. The Historical Development of Quantum Theory is a definitive historical study of that scientific work and the human struggles that accompanied it from the beginning. Drawing upon such materials as the resources of the Archives for the History of Quantum Physics, the Niels Bohr Archives, and the archives and scientific correspondence of the principal quantum physicists, as well as Jagdish Mehra's personal discussions over many years with most of the architects of quantum theory, the authors have written a rigorous scientific history of quantum theory in a deeply human context. This multivolume work presents a rich account of an intellectual triumph: a unique analysis of the creative scientific process. The Historical Development of Quantum Theory is science, history, and biography, all wrapped in the story of a great human enterprise. Its lessons will be an aid to those working in the sciences and humanities alike.

Callimachus - 2854338875

Callimachus Oxford University Press Inc

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Callimachus was arguably the most important poet of the Hellenistic age, for two reasons: his engagement with previous theorists of poetry and his wide-ranging poetic experimentation. Of his poetic oeuvre, which exceeded what we now have of Theocritus, Aratus, Posidippus, and Apollonius combined, only his six hymns and around fifty of his epigrams have survived intact. His enormously influential Aetia, the collection of Iambi, the Hecale, and all of his prose output have been reduced to a handful of citations in later Greek lexica and handbooks or papyrus fragments. In recent years excellent commentaries and synthetic studies of the Aetia, the Iambi, and the Hecale have appeared or are about to appear. But there is no modern study in English of the collection of hymns. And while there are excellent commentaries in English on three of the hymns (Apollo, Athena, Demeter), the commentaries on Zeus and on Delos are limited in scope, and there is no commentary at all on the Artemis hymn. Synthetic studies in English for the most part treat only one hymn, not the collection, and tend to focus on Callimachus' intertextual relationships with his predecessors and/or his influence on Roman poetry. Yet recent work is requiring scholars to broaden their perspective and to consider Callimachus' religious, civic, and geo-political contexts much more systematically in attempting to understand the hymns. A further incentive is that apart from the Homeric and Orphic hymns, Callimachus' are the only other hymns that have survived intact; those written in earlier periods are now reduced to fragments. For these reasons a study of the six hymns together is a desideratum. An additional reason is that Callimachus' collection of six hymns is very likely to have been an authorially arranged poetry book, quite possibly the earliest such book that we have intact; therefore, it allows a unique perspective on the evolution of the form. This volume offers a text and commentary of all six hymns for advanced students of classics and classical scholars, as well as interpretive essays on each hymn that integrate what has been the dominant paradigm-intertextuality-into a broader focus on Callimachus' context. Her introduction treats the transmission of the hymns, the potential for and likelihood of the Homeric hymns as models, the hymns as a poetry book, their language and meter (especially in light of recent work done on this topic), performance practices, and their relationship to cult, court, local geographies, and panhellenic sanctuaries. For each hymn Stephens presents the Greek text, a translation, and a brief commentary containing important information or parallels for interpretation.

I Won't Let You Go BLOODAXE BOOKS

Poetry Book Society Recommended Translation. Rabindranath Tagore (1861-1941) is India's greatest modern poet and the most brilliant creative genius produced by the Indian Renaissance. As well as poetry, he wrote songs, stories and novels, plays, essays, memoirs and travelogues. He was both a restless innovator and a superb craftsman, and the Bengali language attained great beauty and power in his hands. He created his own genre of dance drama and is one of the most important visual artists of modern India. He won the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1913. Tagore's poetry has an impressive wholeness: a magnificent loving warmth, a compassionate humanity, a delicate sensuousness, an intense sense of kinship with nature and a burning awareness of man's place in the universe. He moves with effortless ease from the literal to the symbolic, from the part of the whole, from a tiny detail to the vast cosmos. He is religious in the deepest sense, wavering between a faith that sustains the spirit in times of crisis - or fills it with energy and joy in times of happiness - and a profound questioning that can find no enduring answers. To him the earth is a vulnerable mother who clings to all her offspring, saying 'I won't let you go' to the tiniest blade of grass that springs from her womb, but who is powerless to prevent the decay and death of her children. This is the revised and enlarged second edition of a substantial selection of Tagore's poems and songs translated with an illustrated introduction, notes and glossary by the bilingual writer Ketaki Kushari Dyson, who lives in Oxford. Poet, novelist, playwright, translator, linguist and critic, she is one of the outstanding Bengali writers of her generation, and has published more than thirty titles in her two languages, including acclaimed scholarly works on Tagore.

Don Giovanni (Mozart - Da Ponte) New Generation Publishing

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

One of the most used and abused myths in literature, music, and art in general - and even common discourse - is without doubt that of Don Juan. Revised countless times by diverse artistic personalities, and originating in popular legend, Don Juan was first given literary personality in the tragic drama El burlador de Sevilla (1630), attributed to the Spanish dramatist Tirso de Molina. Through a literary selection composed by the most significant accounts, one participates in a parable in which the myth starts from a seventeenth century conception (in which those who violate the law are condemned), passes to a romantic one in which those who transgress are self-conscious at the same time, and finally funnels through the dawn of the twentieth century (in which the rebellion against social laws is seen as normal). Ethical individualism becomes a tragic but necessary choice - to finally arrive at the mythical contemporary interpretation in which the hero rejects the bourgeois values of society preferring geometric abstraction or neurosis to the real and sensitive universe. However, it is in the transposition to music that the myth of the impertinent libertine acquires a unique fascination, because it has sprung from the familiar, sensual and mysterious fusion of such seemingly different languages but which in substance create, in complete unison, the trait d'union between the living being and the sublime. From the seventeenth century onwards, there are many works inspired by this character, including opera and dance. Without a doubt, the most known work comes from the exceptional nature of the Mozart-Da Ponte. The present work, inspired by some critical reflections, deals with the meeting between an extraordinarily malleable myth, a composer and a librettist capable of recognizing, and lifting to unthinkable heights, the symbolic components of the ancient legend, sealing a unique alchemy able to transmit even the smallest nuances of human nature.

Three Windows on Eternity Watkins Publishing

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Three Windows on Eternity is an exploratory voyage past the frontiers of our knowledge and scientific understanding. It has led the author to inspirational insights about the role of the individual human being in the current phase of the evolutionary process. The author takes the reader on a journey through evolution from the Big Bang to the 21st century. Based on scientific research and personal observation, he argues and concludes that of the 13.5 billion years of evolution, the first 10 billion years, a so-called inorganic evolutionary period lasting from the Big Bang until the emergence of life, was irrefutably governed by a magnificent design. By 'design' he does not mean 'intelligent' design but a state resulting from the eight fundamental constants of nature that emerged in the first nanoseconds following the birth of the universe. That state is a question of personal interpretation, inspired by religious belief or otherwise. The story of evolution presented in this book can raise awareness and inspiration in today's younger generations as they try to realize a controlled transition within the next 25 years, thus avoiding an uncontrolled overshoot/collapse scenario. In this respect, we are playing with time. The author is convinced that many young people who will populate the world in that period are keen to learn from the new story of evolution and are eager to act and contribute to a constructive new phase in that evolution in the 21st century.

Examination Thesis from the year 2008 in the subject Philosophy - Miscellaneous, grade: Pass, - (Sedona University), course: Masters - Meta Physics, language: English, abstract: According to Arntz (2008 : 76), the observer has an inescapable influence on anyobserved physical process. The believe that we are not neutral, objectivewitnesses to things and events was first insisted upon by Niels Bohr and hiscolleagues in Copenhagen where Bohr lived; thus its often called theCopenhagen interpretation (Arntz, 2008: 76). This Copenhagen principle, fromquantum physics, suggests that the smallest part of matter, called a particle,behaves in a fashion based on the consciousness of the observer. For example,if a particle is observed, the behaviour of such a particle is determined based onwhat the observer thinks. Science is therefore suggesting that our thoughts ashumans are the determining factor in the creation of reality.From the metaphysical perspective, Bob Proctor, philosopher, is quoted in Byrne(2006: 3) as saying that we all work with one infinite power - we all guideourselves by the exact same law of the universe the law of attraction. Proctorbelieves that everything in your life that comes your way comes because of thelaw of attraction. It is attracted to you by virtue of the images you are holding inyour mind. The images in your mind or visions in your mind, is thus the basis ofcreation of your reality. What you think determines your reality. The credibility ofauthors such as Proctor is supported in the work of Byrne (2006:7) by otherauthors as John Assaraf, Bob Doyle, Mike Dooley and many others. All of theseauthors support the notion that we can create whatever we hold in our minds as apowerful enough vision. This notion is also supported by the Bible when it states as you believe, so shall it be . In this study the routes to the development of this visioning is analysed and compared. For purposes of this study these routesare defined as meditation, self-hypnosis and visualisation. The routes arecompared and analogies drawn.Meditation is described by Masters (1973: 1) a process whereby an individualreaches an ultimate level of relaxation, with the objective of engaging inaffirmations, or the keep your intentions in the interior centre of your forehead your mind s eye or eye of the soul.[...]

Divan of Hafez University Press of America

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Khaja Shamsuddin Mohammad Hafez (1327-1390 C.E.) was born in Shiraz, a city in Southwest Iran where he lived his entire life. The elegance, beauty, and delicacy of his poetry have made him the most beloved poet of the Persian-speaking world. Hafez composed the bulk of his poetry in the form of ghazal, a lyrical poem similar to an English sonnet whose length ranges from seven to thirteen couplets. Ghazals often deal with love and beauty and may occasionally be interspersed with philosophical, ethical, didactic, or critical lines about life and the universe. Reza Saberi has produced a new English translation of the complete Divan of Hafez, using Dr. Parviz N. Khanlari's Edition. The text of The Divan of Hafez is an authentic translation of all of the poems of Hafez complete with their Persian originals.

Charles Bukowski REAKTION BOOKS

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

In this new interpretation of the life and work of the American poet, short-story writer and novelist Charles Bukowski, David Stephen Calonne examines Bukowskis writings, colourful life and the desperate conditions of his lifestyle, looking at the literary traditions that influenced him and discussing his unique place in world literature. §Bukowski was born in Germany and raised in the United States, a schism that Calonne shows to be crucial in the writers development. From the influence of Germanys literary and intellectual traditions to the writers traumatic childhood, Charles Bukowski explores the effect the writers hybrid identity had on the themes and content of his work. Exploring several unknown works of fiction and poetry created in the early years of his career, the many volumes of poetry published with Black Sparrow Press, major works of fiction like Post Office and Factotum, as well as feature films such as the Mickey Rourke-starring Barfly, Calonne catalogues and dissects the many versions of Bukowski created by the writer and his followers.§A concise yet comprehensive new account, Charles Bukowski will appeal to the wide audience already familiar with this prolific, influential figure, as well as being an invaluable introduction to those new to Bukowskis work and who wish to know more.

Philosophy of Physics John Wiley and Sons Ltd

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Does the future exist already? What is space? Are time machines physically possible? What is quantum mechanical reality like? Are there many universes? Is there a 'true' geometry of the universe? Why does there appear to be an arrow of time? Do humans play a special role in the world?§§In this unique introductory book, Dean Rickles guides the reader through these and other core questions that keep philosophers of physics up at night. He discusses the three pillars of modern physics (quantum mechanics, statistical mechanics, and the theories of relativity), in addition to more cutting-edge themes such as econophysics, quantum gravity, quantum computers, and gauge theories. The book's approach is based on the idea that philosophy of physics is a kind of 'interpretation game' in which we try to map physical theories onto our world. But the rules of this game often lead to a multiplicity of possible victors: rarely do we encounter a simple answer.§§The Philosophy of Physics offers a highly accessible introduction to the latest developments in this exciting field. Written in a lively style, with many visual examples, it will appeal to beginner-level students in both physics and philosophy.
