Why Does the World Exist? PROFILE BOOKS

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

'Why is there a world rather than nothing at all?' remains the most curious and most enduring of all metaphysical mysteries. Moving away from the narrower paths of Christopher Hitchens, Roger Penrose and Stephen Hawking, the celebrated essayist Jim Holt now enters this fascinating debate with his broad, lively and deeply informed narrative that traces all our efforts to grasp the origins of the universe. With sly humour and a highly original personal approach Holt takes on the role of cosmological detective. Suggesting that we might have been too narrow in limiting our suspects to God and the Big Bang, he tracks down, among others, an eccentric Oxford philosopher, a Nobel Laureate physicist, a French Buddhist monk, and John Updike just before he died, to pursue this cosmic puzzle from every angle. As he pieces together a solution - while offering useful insights into time, consciousness, and eternity - he sheds fascinating new light on the meaning of existence. A New York Times bestseller on first publication, this new paperback edition provides a much-needed new take on history's greatest conundrum, in the vein of previous bestsellers like Michael Brooks' 13 Things that Don't Make Sense.

Tho Material, Why Not Immortal? (Classic Reprint) Forgotten Books

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Excerpt from Tho Material, Why Not Immortal? In the Andover Review for September, 1887, was published an article of mine entitled "If Material, Why Mortal?" At various times since then I have given numerous reprints to friends and have been frequently offered suggestions that it be amplified and published in book form. Among these was an eminent and well-known Bishop who, like various other clerical friends, could see nothing in it antagonistic to the Christian religion. In this little book I am following the suggestions above named, and have thought it best to publish the original article verbatim, making it the first chapter of the present book. Certain ideas which seemed somewhat prophetic have proved to be truly such, as e.g., certain improvements in the phonograph which really make it an instrument of precision, rather than merely a "horrible toy."

It's time to set the record straight. I write alone, in a darkened bedroom, wearing my PJs, eating bananas, my laptop on a pillow in front of me ...'

Wszechświat z niczego. Dlaczego istnieje raczej coś niż nic - Lawrence Krauss

Książki & Multimedia > Książki

Opis - Odważna i kontrowersyjna książka Lawrence`a M. Kraussa stanowi dla czytelników zainteresowanych fizyką i kosmologią takie samo wyzwanie, jakim dla zainteresowanych biologią były książki Richarda Dawkinsa. Zbieżność tę podkreśla wyraźnie posłowie, w którym autor "Samolubnego genu" stwierdza, że "Wszechświat z niczego" to w dziedzinie kosmologii ekwiwalent śmiertelnego ciosu, jakim dla supernaturalizmu w biologii było "O powstawaniu gatunków" Darwina. "Tytuł wyraża dokładnie to, co jest napisane. A to, co jest napisane, jest druzgocące" - pisze Dawkins.Jednak "Wszechświat z niczego" to nie tylko wspaniała polemika, ale przede wszystkim potężna dawka wiedzy na temat przyszłości naszego Wszechświata, opartej na najnowszych osiągnięciach fizyki, z odkryciem pola Higgsa na pierwszym miejscu, i przekazywanej w sposób prosty, niebanalny i z dużą dawką humoru. Ostatnio opublikowano wiele świetnych książek o kosmologii, w tym tylko kilka tak zaawansowanych, lecz żadnej, która z taką swadą - jak "Wszechświat z niczego" - zgłębiałaby zagadnienie, dlaczego niepotrzebne jest przywoływanie Boga do podpalenia lontu i wprawienia świata w ruch."Financial Times"Opisana przez Kraussa niestabilna nicość jest inspirująca, ponieważ w tej nicości można ujrzeć i zrozumieć wiele wspaniałych rzeczy."Nature"Lawrence M. Krauss jest światowej sławy fizykiem teoretykiem, zaangażowanym w badania dotyczące kosmologii, a także cząstek elementarnych. Pracuje na Wydziale Fizyki Uniwersytetu Stanowego Arizony, jest również dyrektorem kilku interdyscyplinarnych projektów naukowych.Wielokrotnie nagradzany za swoje badania oraz działalność popularyzatorską, jest jedynym laureatem nagród trzech głównych amerykańskich towarzystw fizycznych: American Physical Society, American Association of Physics Teachers i American Institute of Physics.

What a Wonderful World Faber & Faber, London

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Why do we breathe? What is money? How does the brain work? Why did life invent sex? Does time really exist? How does capitalism work - or not, as the case may be? Where do mountains come from? How do computers work? How did humans get to dominate the Earth? Why is there something rather than nothing? In What a Wonderful World, Marcus Chown, bestselling author of Quantum Theory Cannot Hurt You and the Solar System app, uses his vast scientific knowledge and deep understanding of extremely complex processes to answer simple questions about the workings of our everyday lives. Lucid, witty and hugely entertaining, it explains the basics of our essential existence, stopping along the way to show us why the Atlantic is widening by a thumbs' length each year, how money permits trade to time travel why the crucial advantage humans had over Neanderthals was sewing and why we are all living in a giant hologram.

Książki & Multimedia > Książki

Opis - Dziś figurek ,,Żydów na szczęście" jest w Polsce więcej niż polskich Żydów. Wraz z wejściem kraju na drogę kapitalizmu, figurki i obrazki ukazujące Żydów trzymających pieniądze rozpowszechniły się nad Wisłą. Talizmany te zawisły w domach i stanęły przy kasach sklepowych i restauracyjnych w całym kraju. Czy mają pozytywny czy negatywny wydźwięk? Dzielą Żydów i Polaków czy ich łączą? Czy są to suweniry, czy może talizmany, czy wreszcie zabawki? Duchy Holokaustu czy też patroni polskiego kapitalizmu? Analizując, co figurki oznaczają dla ich twórców oraz odbiorców, Na szczęście to Żyd oferuje prowokacyjne spojrzenie na miejsce Żydów w świadomości współczesnych Polaków.

Opis - "Gone Girl plus . . . The must-have beach read this summer" Telegraph "There"s something you should know before we go any further: my heart is in the wrong place. Now don"t say I didn"t warn you . . ." Perhaps that"s why nothing in Alvie"s life has ever gone right" Until now. She can finally abandon her credit card debt - and her fruitless three-way relationship with Tinder and Twitter - when fate gives her the chance to steal her identical twin"s perfect life. It"s just a shame Beth had to die to make Alvie"s dreams come true. So begin seven days of sex, violence and unapologetic selfies - one wild week that sees Alvie break every rule in the book. She never did have much respect for boundaries. It might be madness, but rules are meant to be broken. Right" Mad is the first in the sexy, shocking and compulsively readable Mad, Bad and Dangerous to Know trilogy. Praise for Mad: "So begins this caper that has Alvina up to her neck in designer labels, hot sex and trouble . . . outrageous - it kept me reading" Daily Mail "A summer read to make you hotter than the weather outside . . . you"d be mad not to find room for this in your case" Sun "I just read Mad in one go. I bloody LOVED it. Like Gone Girl, if Amy Schumer had written it. SUCH fun" Bryony Gordon, bestselling author of Mad Girl "Trust us when we say that you won"t ever have encountered a character quite like Alvie Knightly - the often-drunk, sex-mad, always-sassy heroine . . .

Disruption - 2862343595

Disruption John Wiley & Sons Inc

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Disruption? It's nothing new. Just look at any of the breakthrough business ideas of the last thirty years-from Federal Express overnight delivery to Saturn's fixed sticker price-and you'll see a perfect example of the principle of disruption in action. Still, do you really understand what makes these ideas great? On an intuitive level, maybe, but can you articulate it clearly, reproduce it to create your own business breakthroughs, and make it an integral part of how your company operates? Probably not-unless, of course, you're already familiar with the principles and practices spelled out in Disruption, the groundbreaking new book by global advertising and marketing authority Jean-Marie Dru. To put it simply, disruption is about uncovering the culturally embedded biases and conventions that shape standard approaches to business thinking and get in the way of clear, creative thinking. It's about shattering those biases and conventions and setting creativity free to forge a radical new vision of a product, brand, or service. It's about spearheading change rather than reacting to it. In Disruption, Dru shows you how to harness the enormous potential of this concept. He introduces innovative strategies for breaking down creative barriers and shows you how to analyze traditional approaches from new perspectives. Next, he provides valuable tools for identifying and cataloging conventions, including "what if," "multicultural analysis," and the "disruption bank." He then demonstrates-with the help of dozens of galvanizing examples from around the world-how to apply this knowledge systematically to create innovative competitive strategies, marketing campaigns, and operations plans that can revitalize your company or department. Disruption is must reading for all advertising and marketing professionals, as well as business people who understand the value of creativity. Praise for Disruption "Dru offers not just a convincing context but a successful methodology for breaking out of creative ruts. There's nothing like stirring up a little turbulence to get new thoughts flying. In this book, Dru tells how to pump new energy into brands, with fresh, even revolutionary thinking." -Aldo Papone Senior Advisor, American Express Company "Dru's advertising theories in Disruption are nontraditional, which is exactly what you need to regain the interest and trust of today's consumers." -Scott Bedbury Senior Vice President, Marketing, Starbucks Coffee Company "Disruption is all about risk-taking, trusting your intuition, and rejecting the way things are supposed to be. Disruption goes way beyond advertising, it forces you to think about where you want your brand to go and how to get there." -Richard Branson Founder and Chairman of Virgin Group of Companies. "I read Disruption with admiration and recognition. The neat marketing premise of disruption, as articulated, is brilliant. The case studies are compelling ...making this an unusually easy read." -Owen J. Lipstein Editor-in-Chief, Psychology Today, Spy, Mother Earth News. "I enjoyed reading Jean-Marie Dru's book and found myself nodding my head rather than nodding off. It's a timely and well-argued reminder of the need to be different." -David Abbott Chairman, Abbott Mead Vickers BBDO Ltd. "Dru offers a truly absorbing compendium of the what, how, and why of creating advertising that takes consumers by surprise-advertising that is different but effective. He offers a distinctive approach to discovering unconventional but sensible ideas for brands and for the advertising that supports them -in print, TV, or the Internet." -Stephen A. Greyser Professor of Marketing/Communications, Harvard Business School. "Disruption is a catalyst of the imagination, an invaluable guide for rejecting conventionality, ideas which have always been at the heart of MTV." -Bill Roedy CEO, MTV International
