Kierkegaard and the Quest for Unambiguous Life: Between Romanticism and Modernism: Selected Essays

Kierkegaard and the Quest for Unambiguous Life: Between Romanticism and Modernism: Selected Essays by George Pattison
English | 2013 | ISBN: 0199698678 | 254 pages | PDF | 1 MB

This book looks at Kierkegaard with a fresh perspective shaped by the history of ideas, framed by the terms romanticism and modernism. 'Modernism' here refers to the kind of intellectual and literary modernism associated with Georg Brandes, and such later nineteenth and early twentieth century figures as J. P. Jacobsen, Nietzsche, Dostoevsky, Ibsen (all often associated with Kierkegaard in early secondary literature), and the young Georg Lukacs.

Speaker for the Dead (#2 in the Ender Wiggins Saga) (Audiobook)

Speaker for the Dead (#2 in the Ender Wiggins Saga) (Audiobook) By Orson Scott Card
English | 2005 | ISBN: 1593974760 | MP3 | 372 MB

The thrilling sequel to Ender’s Game and winner of the Hugo and Nebula Awards—this full cast unabridged recording includes an original postscript written and recorded by the author.
Three thousand years have passed since Ender Wiggin won humanity’s war with the Buggers by totally destroying them. Ender remains young, traveling the stars at the speed of relativity, but a hundred years or more might pass on Earth while he experiences a month-long voyage. In three thousand years, Ender’s books The Hive Queen and The Hegemon, written under a pseudonym, have become holy writ, while the name of Ender itself has become anathema: he is the Xenocide, the one who killed an entire race of thinking, feeling beings, killed the only other sapient race humankind had found in all the galaxy.

There are updates on FDA Regulations and Net Weight control limits, as well as additional HACCP applications. A new chapter has been added to explain concepts and implementation of the six-sigma quality control system. Anyone involved in the production foods will find this book a valuable guide for assuring the safety and uniformity of food production through application of the latest techniques in process quality control. Specifically, this text can be used effectively by those skilled in the field for reference; by entry level technicians as a training aid; and by upper management to enhance their understanding of this highly specialized field.

Fooled by Randomness: The Hidden Role of Chance in Life and in the Markets by Nassim Nicholas Taleb

Nassim Nicholas Taleb, «Fooled by Randomness: The Hidden Role of Chance in Life and in the Markets»
Random House Trade Paperbacks | ISBN-10: 0812975219 | PDF | 110 Pages | 8,9 Mb

If the prescriptions for getting rich that are outlined in books such as The Millionaire Next Door and Rich Dad Poor Dad are successful enough to make the books bestsellers, then one must ask, Why aren't there more millionaires? In Fooled by Randomness, Nassim Nicholas Taleb, a professional trader and mathematics professor, examines what randomness means in business and in life and why human beings are so prone to mistake dumb luck for consummate skill. This eccentric and highly personal exploration of the nature of randomness meanders from the court of Croesus and trading rooms in New York and London to Russian roulette, Monte Carlo engines, and the philosophy of Karl Popper. Part of what makes this book so good is Taleb's ability to make seemingly arcane mathematical concepts (at least to this reviewer) entirely relevant in evaluating and understanding everything from the stock market to the success of those millionaires cited in the aforementioned bestsellers. Here's an articulate, wise, and humorous meditation on the nature of success and failure that anyone who wants a little more of the former would do well to consider. Highly recommended. –Harry C. Edwards –This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
