The Descent of Man DOVER PUBLICATIONS

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Charles Darwin was born in England in 1809 and attended the University of Edinburgh to study medicine. When he decided against that vocation, he enrolled at Cambridge where he earned a degree in theology. During an expedition to Africa and South America, Darwin continued his studies in natural science and began writing about his theories of natural selection. His work led to the publication of On the Origin of Species, a book that changed the world. Charles Darwin: Original Thinking Each generation of students comes to Darwin's epoch-making works, several of which are the basis of our publishing program in biology and related fields: The Essential Darwin, 2006; The Descent of Man, 2010; The Expression of the Emotions in Man and Animals, 2006; and On the Origin of the Species, 2006. In the Author's Own Words: "A mathematician is a blind man in a dark room looking for a black cat which isn't there." "I feel most deeply that this whole question of Creation is too profound for human intellect. A dog might as well speculate on the mind of Newton! Let each man hope and believe what he can." "Ignorance more frequently begets confidence than does knowledge: it is those who know little, not those who know much, who so positively assert that this or that problem will never be solved by science." "There is grandeur in this view of life, with its several powers, having been originally breathed into a few forms or into one; and that, whilst this planet has gone cycling on according to the fixed law of gravity, from so simple a beginning endless forms most beautiful and most wonderful have been, and are being, evolved." "Man with all his noble qualities, with sympathy which feels for the most debased, with benevolence which extends not only to other men but to the humblest living creature, with his god-like intellect which has penetrated into the movements and constitution of the solar system

High and Lo Church (Classic Reprint) Forgotten Books

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Excerpt from High and Lo Church Want of definition is the life of all controversy: and controversy is the bane of Christian spirit, of which unity is the essential characteristic, and large comprehensiveness the most distinguishing quality. The following discussion relates to differences of views within the Church, as to matters connected with its doctrine and practice. 'The Church,' in its widest sense, means a community 'belonging to the Lord.' Such acceptation its Greek etymology implies. Within this description come all the Faithful of the human race under every Divine dispensation, from that of the first promise of redemption from the 'Fall' to the covenant with Abraham, and the law given on Mount Sinai, up to the rising of the Light on Zion which brought mankind out of darkness to the full revelation of the Kingdom of the Son of God. The spirits of the justified in disembodied state 'waiting for the adoption, to wit, the redemption of the body' (Rom. viii. 19), and the militant still in earth's probation, are in this communion with The Lord, and with each other, 'out of every kindred, tongue, people, and nation' (Rev. v. 9). 'The Christian Church' means the visible institution of Christ on earth, as organised by His Apostles. This is the recognised depositary of Christian doctrine, and the divinely appointed channel of Christian grace.

Old Saint Paul's Forgotten Books

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Excerpt from Old Saint Paul's: A Tale of the Plague and the Fire One night, at the latter end of April, 1665, the family of a citizen of London, carrying on an extensive business as a grocer in Wood Street, Cheapside, were assembled, according to custom, at prayer. The grocer's name was Stephen Bloundel. His family consisted of his wife, three sons, and two daughters. He had, moreover, an apprentice; an elderly female serving as cook; her son, a young man about five-and-twenty, filling the place of porter to the shop and general assistant; and a kitchen-maid. The whole household attended; for the worthy grocer, being a strict observer of his religious duties, as well as a rigid disciplinarian in other respects, suffered no one to be absent, on any plea whatever, except indisposition, from morning and evening devotions; and these were always performed at stated times. In fact, the establishment was conducted with the regularity of clock-work, it being the aim of its master not to pass a single hour of the day unprofitably. The ordinary prayers gone through, Stephen Bloundel offered up a long and fervent supplication to the most High for protection against the devouring pestilence with which the city was then scourged. He acknowledged that this terrible visitation had been justly brought upon it by the wickedness of its inhabitants; that they deserved their doom, dreadful though it was; that, like the dwellers in Jerusalem before it was given up to ruin and desolation, they "had mocked the messengers of God and despised his word;" that, in the language of the prophet, "they had refused to hearken, and pulled away the shoulder, and stopped their ears that they should not hear; yea, had made their heart like an adamant stone, lest they should hear the law and the words which the Lord of Hosts had sent in his spirit by the former prophets."

Works of Walter Savage Landor, Vol. 2 of 2 (Classic Reprint) Forgotten Books

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Excerpt from The Works of Walter Savage Landor, Vol. 2 of 2 Sandt. Generally men of letters in our days, contrary to the practice of antiquity, are little fond of admitting the young and unlearned into their studies or their society. Kotzebue. They should rather those than others. The young must cease to be young, and the unlearned -may cease to be unlearned. According to the letters you bring with you, sir, there is only youth against you. In the seclusion of a college life, you appear to have studied with much assiduity and advantage, and to hare pursued no other courses than the paths of wisdom. Sandt. Do you approve of the pursuit? Kotzebue. Who does not? Sandt. None, if you will consent that they direct the chase, bag the game, inebriate some of the sportsmen, and leave the rest behind in the dough. May I ask you another question? Kotzebue. Certainly. Sandt. Where lie the paths of wisdom? I did not expect, my dear sir, to throw you back upon your chair. I hope it was no rudeness to seek information from you? Kotzebue. The paths of wisdom, young man, are those which lead us to truth and happiness. Sandt. If they lead us away from fortune, from employments, from civil and political utility; if they cast us where the powerful persecute, where the rich trample us down, and where the poorer (at seeing it) despise us, rejecting our counsel and spuming our consolation; what valuable truth do they enable us to discover, or what rational happiness to expect! To say that wisdom leads to truth, is only to say that wisdom leads to wisdom; for such is truth. Nonsense is better than falsehood; and we come to that. Kotzdxte. How? Sandt. No falsehood is more palpable than that wisdom leads to happiness; I mean in this world; in another we may well indeed believe that the words are constructed of very different materials. But here we are, standing on a barren molehill that crumbles and sinks under our tread; here VOL.a. we are, and show me from hence, Von Kotzebue, a discoverer who has not suffered for his discovery, whether it be of a world or of a truth, whether a Columbus or a Galileo. Let us come down lower. Show me a man who has detected the injustice of a law, the absurdity of a tenet, the malversation of a minister or the impiety of a priest, and who has not been stoned, or hanged, or burnt, or imprisoned, or exiled, or reduced to poverty. The chain of Prometheus is hanging yet upon his rock, and weaker limbs writhe daily in its rusty links. Who then, unless for others, would be a darer of wisdom? And yet, how full of it is even the inanimate world 1 We may gather it out of stones and straws. Much lies within the reach of all: little has been collected by the wisest of the wise.0 slaves to passion 1 0 minions to power! ye carry your own scourges about you; ye endure their tortures daily; yet ye crouch for more. Ye believe that God beholds you; ye know that he will punish you, even worse than ye punish yourselves; and still ye lick the dust where the Old Serpent went before you. Kotzebue. I am afraid, sir, you have formed to yourself a romantic and strange idea both of happiness and of wisdom. Sandt. I too am afraid it may be so. My idea of happiness is, the power of communicating peace, good-will, gentle affections, ease, comfort, independence, freedom, to all men capable of them. Kotzebue. The idea is, truly, no humble one. Sandt. A higher may descend more securely on a stronger mind. The power of communicating those blessings to the capable, is enough for my aspirations. A stronger mind may exercise its faculties in the divine work of creating the capacity. Kotzebue. Childish! childish! Men have cravings enow already; give them fre

Islam and the Challenge of Civilization COMBINED ACADEMIC PUBLISHERS

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Abdelwahab Meddeb makes an urgent case for an Islamic reformation, located squarely in Western Europe, now home to millions of Muslims, where Christianity and Judaism have come to coexist with secular humanism and positivist law. He is not advocating "moderate" Islam, which he characterizes as thinly disguised Wahabism, but rather an Islam inspired by the great Sufi thinkers, whose practice of religion was not bound by doctrine. To accomplish this, Meddeb returns to the doctrinal question of the text as transcription of the uncreated word of God and calls upon Muslims to distinguish between Islam's spiritual message and the temporal, material, and historically grounded origins of its founding scriptures. He contrasts periods of Islamic history-when philosophers and theologians engaged in lively dialogue with other faiths and civilizations, and contributed to transmitting the Hellenistic tradition to early modern Europe-with modern Islam's collective amnesia of this past. Meddeb wages a war of interpretations in this book, in his attempt to demonstrate that Muslims cannot join the concert of nations unless they set aside outmoded notions such as jihad and realize that feuding among the monotheisms must give way to the more important issue of what it means to be a citizen in today's post-religious global setting.

Linguistic and Oriental Studies from Poznań - vol. VII Uniwersytet Adama Mickiewicza w Poznaniu

ANGIELSKI

The special feature of this seventh volume in the general series and fourteenth in the entire set of this journal published since 1991, currently as the official journal of Adam Mickiewicz University Institute of Oriental studies in existence only since May 1, 2005, is again a compact section entitled "Research on languages of China" which contains further results of our engagement in research of China's minority languages and cooperation with specialists themselves descending from the minority groups involved and creating the new intelligentsia emerging in minority societies but for the first time included are also preliminary results of our interest in the enormous diversity of interwoven ethnolects classified as dialects or varieties of Chinese and even the variety considered the official national language of China in one of its most official manifestations, the language of law. The contents are complemented with two contributions unrelated to the said section, one contributing to our even better understanding of both the structure of the Japanese language as well as the intricate communication strategies of its native users, and the other presenting an equally intricate, and very little known outside the very narrow circle of insiders, community of Samaritans living in two groups divided by the border between Israel and the Palestinian Autonomy and their origin. With the foundation, in fact the upgrading of the former Chair of Oriental Studies to the rank of the Institute of Oriental Studies at Poznań and subsequently handing over the Linguistic and Oriental studies from Poznań to the Institute, the decision was made to call into existence a new expanded Editorial Board consisting in the first place of elected senior research workers of the Institute and to modify the process of editing the journal. We hope to be in the position to announce first names in this volume but it will necessarily take some time to work out the new formula for the journal. Needless to say, the editor did not function in a vacuum but was strongly and efficiently supported by friendly and disinterested, often timeconsuming, advice and other indispensable assistance from numerous great persons from all over the world. Herewith I do express my most sincere gratitude and my assurance of utmost obligation. With some we had to part forever and we bid farewell to them on the pages of the journal. It is my hope that with the new formula we will still be able to count on support and cooperation.

Fighting Words Savas Beatie

In 'Fighting Words', award-winning author Richard F. Miller (In Words and Deeds) looks to some of history's most successful battle speechmakers to answer the age-old question of how. How did Pope Urban II's speech convince tens of thousands of Europeans to wage the First Crusade, a dangerous, and for many, a one-way journey to Jerusalem? How did George Patton's speech transform the green kids of the Third Army into the terror of the Third Reich? How did the words of General David Petraeus resurrect a losing effort in Iraq and in the process, retrain his soldiers for a new kind of war?Miller argues that human persuasion is seamless and that the persuasive strategies by which men (and increasingly women) are recruited, trained, and exhorted for war can be applied to politics and business.For those who manage-whether a convenience store or a Fortune 500 company-motivating, instructing, and preparing your people to perform their jobs is, for the competent manager, Job One. And for those who recognize that in this partisan age, politics is just war by other means, 'Fighting Words' applies the insights of battle speeches to politics. Miller concludes his study by analyzing three of President Obama's most successful and controversial speeches based on the lessons learned from the great military motivators of history. What did the president do right? What did he do wrong? What can he do better?Miller doesn't speculate about "what works" on the public podium. Rather, he analyzes real historical examples and extracts their lessons-from Alexander the Great to General David H. Petraeus and President Obama. As Miller aptly demonstrates, persuasive strategies based on love, hate, duty, patriotism, comradeship, fear, and shame are as widely used today as they were in antiquity.'Fighting Words' offers a catalog of time-tested, effective speaking strategies whose double-edged usefulness extends far beyond any battlefield.About the Author: Historian and journalist Richard F. Miller is a graduate of Harvard College (AB, 1974) and Case Western Reserve University School of Law (JD, 1977.) He has served four stints as an embedded journalist: aboard the USS Kitty Hawk (2003); with the 3rd Battalion, 8th Marine Regiment in Fallujah, Iraq (2005); with the 3rd Heavy Brigade Combat Team, 4th Infantry Division near Baqubah, Iraq (2006), and most recently, with the 101st Airborne at various posts in eastern Afghanistan (2008). Miller is a Fellow at the Massachusetts Historical Society and a Director of New England Quarterly, Inc. He is the author of In Words and Deeds: Battle Speeches in History (2008), and the award-winning Harvard's Civil War: The History of the Twentieth Massachusetts Volunteer Infantry (2007).returncharacterreturncharacter returncharacterreturncharacter REVIEWS returncharacterreturncharacter"Wise, illuminating and useful, this book by an author who's paid his dues both as a war correspondent and serious historian makes a convincing case for well-deployed words as a mighty tool of war--or of politics, business or mass communication.

Ethics of the Real VERSO

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

The idea of Kantian ethics is both simple and revolutionary: it proposes a moral law independent of any notion of a pre-established Good or any 'human inclination' such as love, sympathy or fear. In attempting to interpret such a revolutionary proposition in a more 'humane' light, and to turn Kant into our contemporary - someone who can help us with our own ethical dilemmas - many Kantian scholars have glossed over its apparent paradoxes and impossible claims. This book is concerned with doing exactly the opposite. Kant, thank God, is not our contemporary; he stands against the grain of our times. Lacan on the face of it appears the very antithesis of Kant - the wild theorist of psychoanalysis compared to the sober Enlightenment thinker. His concept of the Real, however, provides perhaps the most useful backdrop to this new interpretation of Kantian ethics. Constantly juxtaposing her readings of the two philosophers. Alenka Zupancic summons up an 'ethics of the Real', and clears the ground for a radical restoration of the disruptive element in ethics.

Life is consciousness - without consciousness there is no existence. Consciousness is the totality of one's thoughts, feelings, emotions and impressions on the mind. The state of thinking is how we create our consciousness. Spiritualism teaches that through, the law of action/reaction or cause/effect we take control of our lives as we control our thoughts. Positive thinking leads to happiness and assists the individual to grow. It is especially useful for those looking for unity rather than fundamentalism and coherence instead of dissonance. Qalandars-those holy persons who enjoy freedom from the ties and bounds of Time and Space, and due to their teachings everyone enjoys a relation of love and affection with God. This book, therefore, provides fundamental concepts for creating link with Lord Creator and in gaining knowledge through sublime consciousness, for self peace too. This book is equally useful for a common man belonging to any community living on this globe.

Excerpt from Addresses on the Death of Hon. Stephen A. Douglas: Delivered in the Senate and House of Representative on Tuesday, July 9, 1861 The solemn duty of announcing my late colleague's decease imposes upon me no such obligation; and God grant that the wounds then inflicted may not be opened afresh. Mr. Douglas was born at Brandon, Vermont, April 23, 1813, being but forty-eight years of age at the time of his decease. He was descended from Puritan ancestors by both his parents. Of one - his father - he was bereft in infancy. His mother still survives. After acquiring such an education as could be obtained at the common school and the academy, not having the means to perfect it by a collegiate course, at the early age of twenty he emigrated to the State of Illinois, where he taught school for a short time, and, in 1834, was admitted to the bar to practice law. In 1835 he was made State's attorney; and from that day till the day of his death was almost constantly engaged in the public service of either the State or the Nation. He held the offices of State's attorney, representative in the legislature, secretary of state, and justice of the supreme court in the State of Illinois, and also that of register of the land office at Springfield, in that State, by appointment from Mr. Van Buren, before he entered the Councils of the Nation as a representative in the other branch of Congress, in 1853.

It is December 26, 2112, the day after Gifting Day. Lady Christiana Applewait, a legacy citizen of the Central Zone, and her friend Dr. Jason O'Reilly have been running from the Blue Guard. Though Christy is in line for a seat on the Council of Twelve, her position has not protected her from obsessive stalking by Chief Inspector Ward Stoner. She had to dress in a Gypsy mourning dress and veil to hide her identity in public. They cannot stop. They must fill petitions to place a Citizens' Referendum on the ballot at the next election in order to overturn the Length of Days law. If not, Christy's dear grandparents will turn seventy-five and reach the age of extermination. They will enter the never-ending-sleep, thus ending their Length of Days. A judge in the Central Zone placed a two-year stay on final-sleep travelers while Christy and Jason gather petition signatures in the other three Zones. The four United Zones were formed after the great upheaval in the previous century. They will have to cross Zone borders, closed for many decades. With each zone sealed off from the others, Christy and Jason have no idea what to expect or who will guide them. They will meet the Hollow people in the new Bible belt of the far west; the quiet rural people of the mid-west who live on government farms and work in government-owned mills; and the underlings in the east who live in the sewers and old subway passageways under the city. Fear of detection will not keep them from trying to succeed. God will be with them.

Five years ago, it all went wrong for Cason Cole. He lost his wife and son, lost everything, and was bound into service to a man who chews up human lives and spits them out, a predator who holds nothing dear and respects no law. Now, as the man he both loves and hates lies dying at his feet, the sounds of the explosion still ringing in his ears, Cason is finally free. The gods and goddesses are real. A many-headed pantheon--a tangle of divine hierarchies--once kept the world at arm's length, warring with one another for mankind's belief and devotion. It was a grim and bloody balance, but a balance just the same. When one god triumphed, driving all other gods out of Heaven, it was back to the bad old days: cults and sycophants, and the terrible retribution the gods visit on those who spite them. None of which is going to stop Cason from getting back what's his...
