Vertebrate Dissection BROOKS/COLE

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

VERTEBRATE DISSECTION, Ninth Edition, provides exceptionally thorough and student-tested descriptions of dissection procedures and the steps needed to find all structures. It encourages and facilitates active and self-directed learning by the students so that instructors can teach more effectively and efficiently. The manual emphasizes dissection procedures that preserve as many structures as possible for later review of the entire specimens. This approach is an excellent preparation for students who will subsequently take anatomy courses in the health and animal sciences. Moreover, this manual places the observed material into an evolutionary and functional context. Students will understand the biological role, physiology, and embryonic development of each organ system and its parts, and how the various organ systems have evolved over time and in different animals. Organized by organ systems, this text brings the anatomy alive for students by interspersing narrative text throughout and explaining how the shape and structure of an organ relates to its function, and how evolutionary processes have transformed the form and function of organs. Additionally, the authors introduce a new feature, Anatomy in Action boxes, which contain interesting supplemental material that provides a broader context. Some of these boxes relate to functional anatomy, some make comparisons between different animals, and some address general biological questions that may include comparisons to the anatomy and biology of human beings.

The Catacombs of Rome (Classic Reprint) Forgotten Books

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Excerpt from The Catacombs of Rome In some of the buildings there are vast collections of what may be called the cu riosities of the ancient and modern world; some of them procured by excavations among buildings covered by the wreck of the earthquake or volcano, or thrown down by barbarian violence; others gathered by diligent search over all parts of the earth. During long periods of its history the RO man Church was destructive of all beauty, both in nature and in art but for some cen turics it has endeavoured to make its central seat attractive to all classes of visiters. The scholar and the artist, the Stupid clown and the filthy barefooted pilgrim, can each find his favourite shrines, saints, and priesthood. There is the shrine Of St. Luke, whom they have presumed to enthrone as the patron saint of painters, as well as one of St. An thouy, to whom they have assigned the special care of asses and horses. NO degree of refinement, no depgh of brutal ignorance. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.

Seventy Centuries of the Life of Mankind, Vol. 1 of 2 Forgotten Books

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Excerpt from Seventy Centuries of the Life of Mankind, Vol. 1 of 2: In a Survey of History From the Earliest Known Records Through All Stages of Civilization, in All Important Countries, Down to the Present Time; Ancient and Medieval The method of historical composition which these writers have illustrated so finely is one that appeals to my admiration, and to my judgment of values in historical work. I have given much thought to its principles, and am bold enough, in my present undertaking, to attempt the largest possible application of them, in a comprehensive survey of the whole of human history, from its dawn to the present day. The resulting exhibit differs essentially, in mode and character, from any other of like scope that I know. The aim in it has been to sift out almost every thing that does not contribute importantly to a clear dis closure of the main movements in events, the occasional changes of direction in such movements, the marking thereby of epochs and periods that are more or less distinct, and the continuity of the forces that act in them throughout. If I have succeeded even partially in my undertaking, I can feel that I have not done an uncalled for work; because success will mean some helpfulness to those who read it in comprehending History as a whole, and in subsequently seeking a better knowledge of its parts with a livelier interest in the details. My first essay toward this work was made in a general sketch of European history, published in my History for Ready Reference, readers of which sketch have often urged me to extend it, or extend the plan of it, as I have now done. In parts of the present writing I have made considerable use of the former essay, but with ex tensive recasting, revision and enlargement, so that even the European sections of the survey are essentially new.

Doctrine of Sacred Scripture, Vol. 1 Forgotten Books

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Excerpt from The Doctrine of Sacred Scripture, Vol. 1: A Critical, Historical and Dogmatic Inquiry Into the Origin and Nature of the Old and New Testaments The particular scope and method of this book are set forth in the introduction, and the fuller justification of its purpose and plan must be left to the results reached by the entire course of its discussions. All its parts, however, have been made as impersonal as possible; for the author has not been willing to seem to be inculcating his own opinions rather than seriously and thoroughly investigating the truth of a great subject. A few words of a more personal and familiar kind will surely, then, be both suitable and welcome. I speak these words in the preface, in order that my readers and I may enter upon this difficult investigation, being already on good terms and disposed to keep in right relations with each other. A certain mutual justice and courtesy must enter into these right relations; for, while every author should feel bound to render a fair equivalent for the time which he asks of his readers, and should never rudely discredit their cherished opinions, he may feel also that he, in turn, has certain just claims to make upon them. The embarrassing fear that the subject of this book would prove interesting to only a few of the thoughtful, happily has not stood in the way of the work necessary for its construction. It was begun some years since, and has been continued with well-sustained ardor, in part because the tokens of intense public interest in its subject were frequent and unmistakable. At that time, even, I had made rather a generous estimate of the long and laborious course of investigation which lay before me. It scarcely needs to be said that this original estimate has required over and over again to be expanded. In the mean time my professional life has changed from that of a preacher and pastor to that of a teacher of philosophy.

Races, Religions, and Institutions of Turkey and the Neighboring Countries (Classic Reprint) Forgotten Books

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Excerpt from The Races, Religions, and Institutions of Turkey and the Neighboring Countries The sources of the Aryan races, which now occupy Europe and some parts of Asia, are, it is believed, in Central Asia; but swarms of that branch of mankind have passed from their original seats in times anterior to history. The Persians were a very early and very civilised Aryan race, inhabiting a country much larger, much more fertile, and much more prosperous than the present Persia. Other Aryan races passed to the east, and, conquering the aboriginal tribes of India, formed the modern Hindoos. In Western Asia, again, Armenia, and Asia Minor were occupied by Aryan races; and in Europe, in the dawn of history, we find the greater part of the Continent occupied by early Aryan races - Latins, Greeks, and Celts. The Latins conquered and assimilated most of the Celtic countries, and formed the present Latin nations of Italy, France, and Spain. A portion of the countries to the eastward of Italy, upon the Danube, were also Latinised in early days, and traces of these Latinised races are still found there. The Greeks, though great in their civilisation, were never a very numerous people. They pushed their colonies and their civilisation beyond their own limits, and the neighbouring Macedonians becoming identified with them, they conquered a great part of the world. Although they were subjected by the Romans they achieved a moral conquest of their conquerors; and the Roman Empire in its later days became Greek in its language, its literature, its arts, and its religion. The Teutonic or German races were a later wave of the Aryan immigration, and occupied the modern Germany, the low German countries of Holland and Sleswig, England, and the countries which we call Scandinavian - viz., Denmark, Sweden, and Norway. Last of the Aryan races came the Slavs into Europe, and they are so important to our present subject that I shall ask your particular attention to them.

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER - NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY THE ECONOMIST - "I wrote this book not sure I could follow the road to character, but I wanted at least to know what the road looks like and how other people have trodden it."-David Brooks§§With the wisdom, humor, curiosity, and sharp insights that have brought millions of readers to his New York Times column and his previous bestsellers, David Brooks has consistently illuminated our daily lives in surprising and original ways. In The Social Animal, he explored the neuroscience of human connection and how we can flourish together. Now, in The Road to Character, he focuses on the deeper values that should inform our lives. Responding to what he calls the culture of the Big Me, which emphasizes external success, Brooks challenges us, and himself, to rebalance the scales between our "résumé virtues"-achieving wealth, fame, and status-and our "eulogy virtues," those that exist at the core of our being: kindness, bravery, honesty, or faithfulness, focusing on what kind of relationships we have formed.§§Looking to some of the world's greatest thinkers and inspiring leaders, Brooks explores how, through internal struggle and a sense of their own limitations, they have built a strong inner character. Labor activist Frances Perkins understood the need to suppress parts of herself so that she could be an instrument in a larger cause. Dwight Eisenhower organized his life not around impulsive self-expression but considered self-restraint. Dorothy Day, a devout Catholic convert and champion of the poor, learned as a young woman the vocabulary of simplicity and surrender. Civil rights pioneers A. Philip Randolph and Bayard Rustin learned reticence and the logic of self-discipline, the need to distrust oneself even while waging a noble crusade.§§Blending psychology, politics, spirituality, and confessional, The Road to Character provides an opportunity for us to rethink our priorities, and strive to build rich inner lives marked by humility and moral depth.§§"Joy," David Brooks writes, "is a byproduct experienced by people who are aiming for something else. But it comes."§§Praise for The Road to Character §§"A hyper-readable, lucid, often richly detailed human story." - The New York Times Book Review §§"David Brooks-the New York Times columnist and PBS commentator whose measured calm gives punditry a good name-offers the building blocks of a meaningful life." - Washingtonian §§"This profound and eloquent book is written with moral urgency and philosophical elegance." -Andrew Solomon, author of Far from the Tree and The Noonday Demon §§"The voice of the book is calm, fair and humane. The highlight of the material is the quality of the author's moral and spiritual judgments." -The Washington Post §§"A powerful, haunting book that works its way beneath your skin." -The Guardian (U.K.)§§"This learned and engaging book brims with pleasures." - Newsday§§"Original and eye-opening . . . At his best, Brooks is a normative version of Malcolm Gladwell, culling from a wide array of scientists and thinkers to weave an idea bigger than the sum of its parts." - USA Today §§"There is something affecting in the diligence with which Brooks seeks a cure for his self-diagnosed shallowness by plumbing the depths of others." -Rebecca Mead, The New Yorker §§From the Hardcover edition.

Kam Story, The: A Friendly Introduction To The Content, Hist World Scientific Publishing

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

This is a semi-popular mathematics book aimed at a broad readership of mathematically literate scientists, especially mathematicians and physicists who are not experts in classical mechanics or KAM theory, and scientific-minded readers. Parts of the book should also appeal to less mathematically trained readers with an interest in the history or philosophy of science. The scope of the book is broad: it not only describes KAM theory in some detail, but also presents its historical context (thus showing why it was a "breakthrough"). Also discussed are applications of KAM theory (especially to celestial mechanics and statistical mechanics) and the parts of mathematics and physics in which KAM theory resides (dynamical systems, classical mechanics, and Hamiltonian perturbation theory). Although a number of sources on KAM theory are now available for experts, this book attempts to fill a long-standing gap at a more descriptive level. It stands out very clearly from existing publications on KAM theory because it leads the reader through an accessible account of the theory and places it in its proper context in mathematics, physics, and the history of science.

Introduction to the Grammar of the Sanskrit Language Forgotten Books

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Excerpt from An Introduction to the Grammar of the Sanskrit Language: For the Use of Early Students THE design of the present Grammar of the Sanskrit Language has been suggested by the experience which I have now had in teaching the language, and by the want which I have repeatedly felt of some such elementary work as that which I have here attempted to compile. Of the Sanskrit Grammars published in Calcutta, the works of Mr. C'olebrooke, Dr. Carey, and Mr. Forster are too voluminous and difficult for beginners. The Grammar of Mr. Yates is better adapted to such a class of students, but it is not readily procurable in this country. The Grammar of Professor Bopp, being composed in German and in Latin, is not universally acceptable to English students: and the only Grammar within their reach, therefore, has been that of Sir C. Wilkins. This work, however admirable in many respects, is exceptionable in some parts of its arrangement, and is inconvenient in use from its extent; it is also growing scarce. A new Grammar, therefore, on a somewhat different plan, had become necessary; and as I found no one disposed to engage in its preparation, I have thought it incumbent upon me to undertake the task.

The New America and the Far East (Classic Reprint) Forgotten Books

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Excerpt from The New America and the Far East It is possible to govern: a dependency better than the home country. The Eng lish rule in India is like the Roman rule during the happiest period of the provinces, in justice, moderation and understanding of the governed. The Romans, however, successfully sought to make Romans of their colonists. Spain, Britain, Asia Minor and northern Africa accepted the architecture, the gods, the military system and eventually the language of Rome. In India, however, the rulers and the ruled are as separate as they were when the English first came. No English Viceroy marries a native princess and founds a reigning family. Not more than a hundredth of the people have accepted Christianity in any form. The natives go to the English courts for justice, ride on the English railroads, buy English goods, but only a small fraction speak English. Suttee has been abolished for many years and Juggernaut is no longer allowed to crush his victims; but such a national incubus as the caste system shows almost no wearing down, and the rankest and foulest heathenism is practised every day in temples a few hundred yards from mission stations. India remains Asiatic to the core. The picturesqueness of the country, many of the incidents of its remarkable history, and some of the great Indian personalities are set forth in this book. It shows the variety and the complexity of Indian conditions and Indian life. The Indians are well known to be blood brethren to the people of western Europe, as is shown by the kinship between Sanskrit and Greek, Latin and even modern European tongues. This volume does not aim to show the likeness between the east and west, the similarities of human nature in both continents, but rather to call attention to the divergencies. The author squarely faces the discontent of that part of India which can express its opinion of the rule of the foreigner. In effect, the loud and increasing voices of protest in India insist that the land would rather govern itself ill than be well governed by the Feringhee. And ill governed the land will be, if ever the English lose their hold. For, besides the old rivalries of north and south, of hill and plain, is the unceasing bitter feeling between the Hindu and the Moslem, who live in many parts of India side by side. For all these problems, this book is helpful for its account of the actual conditions of India, of the spirit of the people who may perhaps some day try their own skill at empire building.

Wonderland or Alaska and the Inland Passage (Classic Reprint) Forgotten Books

Excerpt from Wonderland or Alaska and the Inland Passage Multi discurrent, et augebitur stultitia" Thus did one of the profoundest of modern thinkers parody the prediction of the Hebrew prophet who foretold the time when, with increased facilities for travel and intercommunication, there should come a great enlargement of the bounds of knowledge, and a corresponding amelioration of the condition of humanity. It would, however, be strange indeed, if the complex process of social evolution, even in its present stage, were not marked by some of the indications of a retrograde movement. The age in which we live has undoubtedly its peculiar follies and foibles, which are but thrown into relief by the qualities that more generally distinguish it. But many are running to and fro, and knowledge is being increased. Nature is revealing herself to the traveler in new forms and aspects, and disclosing to his wondering gaze mysterious pages of her great book hitherto hidden from him. And while extensive tracts of country, presenting physical features to which the entire known world furnishes no parallel, have been brought by railroad enterprise within reach alike of the curious sight-seer and the inquiring student, a vast region, of almost unexampled wealth-producing capabilities, has, by the same agency, been thrown open to that advancing tide of civilization which is rapidly overspreading the world. Hence the traveler journeying to Wonderland - to that enchanted realm where the most extravagant creations of the fancy appear trivial and commonplace beside the more extraordinary works of Nature - sees also, in process of solution, some of the hitherto most perplexing problems of economics; observes, as he can not do with like facility anywhere else in the world, the well-ordered plan upon which the bounty of Nature is distributed; and witnesses the unlocking of vast storehouses of good, to supply the increasing needs of the human race. It may be doubted whether the world affords another tour at once so delightful and so instructive as that which, beginning at the head of the Mississippi valley, and crossing the great wheat fields of Dakota and Eastern Washington, the stock ranges of Montana, and the gold and silver ribbed mountains of Montana and Idaho, embraces also the wonders of the Yellowstone National Park, and the incomparable scenery of the Columbia river, to crown all with the stupendous sights of that Great Land whose unique natural features have earned for it the well-deserved title of "Wonderland." No longer one of peril and hardship, but, on the contrary, one of absolute luxury, this tour has, within the last two years, attracted thousands of pilgrims from all parts of the civilized world. To them, as well as to all other lovers of the sublime and beautiful, and to the students of the mysteries of Nature in all lands, who may have the good fortune to visit the far Northwest in 1886, the following pages are respectfully inscribed.

Report of a Committee of Directors of the Bank of the United States (Classic Reprint) Forgotten Books

Excerpt from Report of a Committee of Directors of the Bank of the United States The Committee to whom was referred on the 24th of September, a paper signed "Andrew Jackson," purporting to have been read to a Cabinet on the 18th, and also another paper signed "H. D. Gilpin, John T. Sullivan, Peter Wager, and Hugh M'Elderry," bearing date August 19th, 1833 - with instructions to consider the same, and report to the Board "whether any, and what steps may be necessary on the part of the Board in consequence of the publication of said letter and report," beg leave to state - That they have carefully examined these papers, and will now proceed to report the result of their reflections in regard to them. In order, however, to render them more intelligible, it will be proper to recal to the attention of the Board, the actual relation which the Bank has for some years past borne to the Executive. Since the establishment of the Institution it has devoted itself anxiously and exclusively to the purposes of its creation, the restoration of the currency, the maintenance of the general credit, and the accommodation of the internal and foreign trade of the country. That it has not failed in these objects - that it has indeed realized more than the anticipations of the most sanguine, is attested by all parts of the community. It was in the midst of this career of inoffensive usefulness, when soon after the accession to power of the present Executive, the purpose was distinctly revealed that other duties than those to the country were required - and that it was necessary for the Bank in administering its affairs, to consult the political views of those who had now obtained the ascendancy in the Executive. It is understood that soon after that event a meeting was held in Washington of the principal chiefs, to consider the means of perpetuating their new authority, and the possession of the Bank was among the most prominent objects of the parties assembled. The first open manifestation of this purpose was in June, 1829, when a concerted effort was made by the executive officers to interfere in the election of the Board of Directors at Portsmouth. At the head of this attempt was Mr. Levi Woodbury, now a member of the present Cabinet at Washington, who did not hesitate to avow in a letter to the Secretary of the Treasury, which, though marked "confidential," was subsequently ordered to be published by the Committee of investigation in 1832 - that he wished the interference of the Government to remove the President of the Branch at Portsmouth, of whom he says: - "The new President Jeremiah Mason, is a particular friend of Mr. Webster, and his political character is doubtless well known to you " - and he requests the Secretary of the Treasury "to commumunicate with some of the Directors of the Mother Bank in favour of such a change.

Excerpt from Miscellany Consisting of Essays, Biographical Sketches and Notes of Travel For many years I have occasionally employed fragments of time in writing for our Church papers. My articles are thinly scattered over a broad surface of periodical literature, some of them in papers which, at the time those articles appeared, had but a limited circulation. These papers are now rapidly going to waste, and most of their early readers have already disappeared from among the living. I am not quite willing that all of my articles should remain a dead letter, as I have often been requested, by different individuals, to republish some of them. And the only hope now of rescuing them from oblivion, is to republish them in a convenient and permanent form. In concluding to adopt this plan, I act in accordance with the counsel of some of the wisest and best of men within my knowledge. This volume, as its name suggests, consists of different sorts of compositions, though it embraces only a small proportion of what I have written and published. The work is divided into three parts, for the convenience of readers. The first part contains short essays on various literary, moral, and religious topics of a practical bearing, to the exclusion of speculative theology.

Existential Dependence and Cognate Notions Philosophia

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

This is a work in analytic metaphysics. Its main purpose is to clarify a notion of central importance in metaphysics since Aristotle, to wit the notion of existential dependence. All currently available analyses of the notion are examined and then rejected, and a new account is defended. This work is the first comprehensive one on the topic. The first chapter is devoted to introducing and explaining some notions which are crucial for the central parts of the work, namely the notions of existence, necessity, (individual and plural) quantifi- cation and essence. In chapters 2 and 4 focus is made on the relation of "simple" existential dependence, the relation which holds between two objects when the first cannot exist without the other. Three accounts of simple dependence - each endorsed by some contemporary philosophers, among them Kit Fine, E. Jonathan Lowe, Kevin Mulligan, Peter Simons and Barry Smith - are presented and then rejected. A new account, inspired by suggestions by Fine and Lowe, is defended. According to that account - the "foundational" account - simple dependence is to be defined in terms of a relation called 'grounding', which is presented in chapter 3. Chapters 5 and 6 deal with relations belonging to the family of simple dependence, among others (i) generic dependence, (ii) various forms of temporal dependence, and (iii) supervenience, a complex dependence relation largely invoked in current debates on the philosophy of mind. It is shown that foundationalist accounts of these notions - i.e. accounts framed in terms of grounding - are superior to other existing accounts. These chapters also contain some applications of the foundational conception of dependence, in particular a characterization of substances and a formulation of the distinction between two well known conceptions of universals, the Aristotelian and the Platonician conception. The last part of the work is a technical appendix where one can find, among other things, a system for the logic of essence, which is proved to be sound and complete with respect to a possible world semantics.§§The Author:§Born 1972. PhD in Philosophy, University of Geneva (2002).§Now profesor investigador Ramon y Cajal at the URV, Tarragona, Spain, and member of the LOGOS group, University of Barcelona, Spain.§Areas of specialization: Metaphysics, philosophical logic, philosophy of language, philosophy of mind.

Excerpt from Official Report of the First Six Meetings of the American Brigham Family Association: Held at Chicago, Illinois; Marlboro, Boston and Worcester, Mass;, In 1893, '94, '95, '96, '98, 1900 This is our first bow before a Brigham reading audience. If you shall be pleased to like what we say herein, probably we will call again after our Family Reunion of two years hence. To most of you, this will be an initial pamphlet; but there has been one previous effort of this sort in our family. After the first Brigham Reunion, which was held in Chicago during the World's Fair, Dr. B. A. R. Brigham (who was then the Historian of our clan) issued a published account of that gathering, which met with hearty approval and appreciation from all who were privileged to receive a copy. (It was the proposition, that all who should join the Association then being formed would receive a copy of the proceedings gratis. For my own poor part, to help along what seemed to be a very deserving labor of love, I paid $5.00 for five memberships. I am sorry to say, that I was the only one of five, who thus became members, who ever received a copy of the Report, which was truly enough thereafter printed. I remark this with something of reluctance, in a spirit neither of boast nor animosity; simply as a matter of fact.) Judging from the foregoing, the circulation of the former pamphlet must have been very circumscribed. Indeed, so thoroughly are we convinced of this, that we are herein setting out in full the Historical Article delivered at that first meeting; in the belief that this Report would not be all that it should be, were such article omitted. We hope you may find these coming pages both inviting and readable. Some parts will surely appeal to the hearts of all who have ever identified themselves in any way with the dear old B. F. A. Is it not a joy to look upon the genial features of our veteran Family President? And the straightforward narrative of his life and attainments is filled with hope for the younger members of our great family. Then, too, the able resume of the social side of our meetings, the work of our gifted "quill pusher," our retiring President, William E. Brigham, Esq., of the Boston Transcript, will add its peculiar pleasures to all; reawakening tender thoughts of happy hours spent with our kindred, as well as memories of those dear ones who will never meet with us so again. Obituaries of some of the last to leave us will be found; would that such narratives might appear at greater length, but the limited purview of this publication forbids anything like discursive biographies. A few personals of the living, some notes on English rambles, with the several historical articles, completes the sum of our modest offering. Blandishment aside, these records are sufficient to conclusively prove our clan has produced numbers of exceptional men and women in divers and sundry worthy walks of life. It is the sincere hope of the writer, that this poor effort may lead in the near future up to something complete and enduring, touching those who have ever borne the patronymic Brigham.
