V. S. Ramachandran is at the forefront of his field—so much so that Richard Dawkins dubbed him the "Marco Polo of neuroscience." Now, in a major new work, Ramachandran sets his sights on the mystery of human uniqueness. Taking us to the frontiers of neurology, he reveals what baffling and extreme case studies can teach us about normal brain function and how it evolved. Synesthesia becomes a window into the brain mechanisms that make some of us more creative than others. And autism—for which Ramachandran opens a new direction for treatment—gives us a glimpse of the aspect of being human that we understand least: self-awareness.

In the 1950s, Herbie Mann frequently shared the spotlight on record dates with other flutists. This V.S.O.P. LP, a reissue of a set originally for Mode and also out for awhile on Premier, matches Mann (who here also plays piccolo, clarinet and tenor) with Buddy Collette (switching between flute, clarinet, tenor and alto) in a quintet with pianist Jimmy Rowles, bassist Buddy Clark and drummer Mel Lewis. The results are generally pleasing, if somewhat lightweight, with such obscure tunes as "Here's Buddy," Rowles' "Pop Melody," "Here's Pete" and Mann's "Theme from 'Theme From'" alternating with three standards and Chico Hamilton's "Morning After."

In Deutschland werden mehrere Ärzte getötet. Eines der Opfer wurde darüber hinaus gefoltert. Nicolas Eichborn und Helen Wagner vom BKA werden mit dem Fall beauftragt. Im Zuge ihrer Ermittlungen stellen sie fest, dass die Opfer eines verbindet: Sie alle haben an einem gemeinsamen Projekt zu Zeiten der DDR gearbeitet – ein Projekt, das Todesopfer forderte. Die beiden Ermittler tauchen ein in die Welt der Pharmariesen und erfahren sehr schnell, dass es Menschen gibt, die für Geld über Leichen gehen. Aber noch etwas anderes wird ihnen klar: Nichts ist so, wie es anfangs schien …

Il neuroscienziato anglo-indiano Ramachandran fa il punto in questo volume sulla profonda rivoluzione in corso nel campo degli studi sui meccanismi che regolano il funzionamento della mente. Spiega quali relazioni esistono tra la coscienza - il cosiddetto "fantasma nel cervello" - e il senso della vista e come un danno agli occhi possa modificare la percezione di sé, come e dove hanno origine la creatività individuale e l'invenzione poetica. Frutto di una serie di lezioni, è un volume che guida alla conoscenza dei nuovi traguardi delle ricerche sul cervello. …

Reissue with latest DSD remastering. Comes with liner notes. With the cheers and huzzahs from their 1976 one-off reunion still resounding, the reconstituted Miles Davis Quintet minus Miles went on the road in 1977, spreading their 1965-vintage gospel according to the Prince of Darkness to audiences in Berkeley and San Diego, CA. In doing so, Herbie Hancock, Wayne Shorter, Ron Carter, and Tony Williams, plus interloper Freddie Hubbard seem to pick up where they left off, with a repertoire mostly new to the five collectively and developed from there.

V.S.Naipaul - Fedeli a oltranza: Un viaggio tra i popoli convertiti all'Islam

Nel 1995, Naipaul torna dopo circa vent’anni in quattro paesi sconvolti, in diversa misura, dal trionfo dell’Islam. Indonesia, Iran, Pakistan, Malesia. Nel corso del viaggio, e degli incontri, il taccuino di Naipaul si riempie di storie e osservazioni secche, nitide, mai prevedibili, restituendoci una carta aggiornata e preoccupante di quel tifone ideologico – il fondamentalismo islamico – di cui l’Occidente sembra non voler conoscere le traiettorie, ma dal quale continua a temere di essere travolto. "Fedeli a oltranza" è stato pubblicato per la prima volta nel 1998.
