Ernst Nagel, filosofo della scienza boemo si trasferì in giovane età negli Stati Uniti, dove studiò con M.R. Cohen al City College di New York e, dopo aver conseguito il dottorato, insegnò alla Columbia University. È esponente, con John H. Randall e Justus Buchler, della scuola naturalistica della Columbia University, che considera la scienza come metodo privilegiato per l'analisi della realtà e identifica poi la realtà con la natura, nella quale rientra, in un continuum unitario, anche l'uomo con i suoi valori. Nagel si è preoccupato soprattutto di rendere conto da un punto di vista naturalistico dei principi della logica. Rifiutando la soluzione di J. Stuart Mill, che vede nei principi logici delle generalizzazioni empiriche ben fondate, Nagel propone di considerarli invece come proposte di ideali di precisione che possono mutare a seconda della classe di fenomeni; contingenza e fallibilità sono quindi caratteristiche essenziali della ricerca scientifica.

A precocious violin talent, Bloch left home at the age of seventeen to study with the illustrious Belgian violinist and composer Eugène Ysaÿe, who regognised his pupil's extraordinary creative potential and persuaded him to pursue composition. Bloch's Violin Cocnerto, an underrated rarity, is one of his most important works of the 1930s. Although Bloch attributed the major themes in the Concerto to American Indian songs heard on a visit to New Mexico, he also described the work as portraying 'the complex, glowing, agitated soul that I feel vibrating through the Bible'. The Suite hébraïque, which draws on traditional melodies to evoke a sense of nostalgia, and the exotic tryptich Baal Shem (Three Pictures of Chassidic Life), are indelibly associated with Bloch's 'Jewish works'.

I wanna back to the islands
Where the shrimp boats tie up to the pilin'
Gimme oysters and beer For dinner every day of the year
and I'll feel fine I'll feel fine


Rocksteady is officially Monty Alexander's recording. His deal with Telarc, now being realized, was that he record a straight jazz recording and then one of his own choosing. This is the latter. Mr. Alexander, along with his Jamaican brother Ernest Ranglin, turns his attention to the ska music of their young adulthood. And this music absolutely smacks of the islands. Few musical styles can conjure temporal images the way ska and reggae do for salty sea air, rum, and smoke. Honored here is the ska heyday of the late 1960s and early 1970s, the music of Toots and the Maytals, The Blues Blasters, Theophilous Beckford, and Derrick Harriott.

For those listeners expecting reggae, modify your expectations. This music is a humid mixture of island music, American R&B and Soul, and Afro-Cuban jazz, and pop shined through the distinctly Jamaican cultural prism, producing this rich, sexual music. Little of Monty Alexander?s jazz chops are present, as I am sure was his design. Instead the pianist becomes a groove merchant establishing commerce with his partner in crime, guitarist Ernest Ranglin, whose role is to play funk master to Alexander?s relentless groove.

The disc was recorded live in the studio with no overdubs, providing this music with the necessary “live” feel. This is serious music that will make one smile and hope that Mr. Alexander provides us more.

Impaurite e remissive, Shelley e sua madre sono abituate a subire: dal padre che le ha abbandonate scappando con una ventenne, dalle compagne di scuola che con le loro violenze hanno rovinato il volto di Shelley, dai colleghi di lavoro della madre. Per questo decidono di ritirarsi in una tranquilla casa di campagna lontana da tutto e da tutti: in fondo sono topi e i topi hanno bisogno di un nascondiglio per sottrarsi agli artigli dei gatti. Ma una notte un balordo entra in casa, le lega e le minaccia per ore…

Un grande romanzo storico Solo un eroe leggendario può sfidare Roma Nell’inverno del 376 d.C., l’imperatore Valente è stato costretto a ritirare le truppe dalla Mesia fino alla Tracia per concentrarle tutte nella guerra contro i Persiani. I confini dell’impero romano lungo il Danubio si ritrovano così sempre più sguarniti, mentre una terribile minaccia avanza da Nord, incarnata dall’arrembante popolo dei Goti. Eppure, per quanto scarse e deboli, le legioni rimaste a guardia delle frontiere settentrionali sono tutto ciò che rimane a frapporsi tra questa nuova ondata e le ultime terre dell’impero.
