(H/B) WAYS OF BEING
BEYOND HUMAN INTELLIGENCE
Εκδότης: ALLEN LANE
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0168-0075

Recent years have seen rapid advances in 'artificial' intelligence, which increasingly appears to be something stranger than we ever imagined. At the same time, we are becoming more aware of the other intelligences which have been with us all along, unrecognized. These other beings are the animals, plants, and natural systems that surround us, and are slowly revealing their complexity and knowledge - just as the new technologies we've built are threatening to cause their extinction, and ours. In Ways of Being, writer and artist James Bridl...

(P/B) RATIONALITY
WHAT IT IS, WHY IT SEEMS SCARCE, WHY IT MATTERS
Εκδότης: ALLEN LANE
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3452-4137

In the twenty-first century, humanity is reaching new heights of scientific understanding - and at the same time appears to be losing its mind. How can a species that discovered vaccines for Covid-19 in less than a year produce so much fake news, quack cures and conspiracy theorizing? In Rationality, Pinker rejects the cynical clich? that humans are simply an irrational species - cavemen out of time fatally cursed with biases, fallacies and illusions. After all, we discovered the laws of nature, lengthened and enriched our lives and set th...

HOW A DECADE OF FINANCIAL CRISES CHANGED THE WORLD

Winner of the 2019 Lionel Gelber Prize The definitive history of the Great Financial Crisis, from the acclaimed author of The Deluge and The Wages of Destruction. In September 2008 the Great Financial Crisis, triggered by the collapse of Lehman brothers, shook the world. A decade later its spectre still haunts us.

(H/B) LEADERSHIP
SIX STUDIES IN WORLD STRATEGY
Εκδότης: ALLEN LANE
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0168-0076

Henry Kissinger analyses how six extraordinary leaders he has known have shaped their countries and the world'Leaders,' writes Henry Kissinger in this compelling book, 'think and act at the intersection of two axes: the first, between the past and the future; the second between the abiding values and aspirations of those they lead. They must balance what they know, which is necessarily drawn from the past, with what they intuit about the future, which is inherently conjectural and uncertain. It is this intuitive grasp of direction that ena...

(H/B) HELGOLAND
Εκδότης: ALLEN LANE
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0168-0068

In June 1925, twenty-three-year-old Werner Heisenberg, suffering from hay fever, had retreated to the treeless, wind-battered island of Helgoland in the North Sea in order to think. Walking all night, by dawn he had wrestled with an idea that would transform the whole of science and our very conception of the world. In Helgoland Carlo Rovelli tells the story of the birth of quantum physics and its bright young founders who were to become some of the most famous Nobel winners in science. It is a celebration of youthful rebellion and intell...

(H/B) THE DAWN OF EVERYTHING
A NEW HISTORY OF HUMANITY
Εκδότης: ALLEN LANE
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0168-0073

For generations, our remote ancestors have been cast as primitive and childlike - either free and equal, or thuggish and warlike. Civilization, we are told, could be achieved only by sacrificing those original freedoms or, alternatively, by taming our baser instincts. David Graeber and David Wengrow show how such theories first emerged in the eighteenth century as a reaction to indigenous critiques of European society, and why they are wrong. In doing so, they overturn our view of human history, including the origins of farming, property, ...

WHAT IT IS WHY IT SEEMS SCARCE WHY IT MATTERS (EXPORT EDITION)
Εκδότης: ALLEN LANE
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0168-0071

Humans today are often portrayed as cavemen out of time, poised to react to a lion in the grass with a suite of biases, blind spots, and illusions. But cognitive scientist and rational optimist Steven Pinker argues that this cannot be the whole picture. A list of the ways in which we are stupid cannot explain how we're so smart: how we discovered the laws of nature, transformed the planet, and lengthened and enriched our lives. Indeed, if humans were fundamentally irrational, how did they discover the benchmarks for rationality against whi...

1956 TO THE PRESENT
Εκδότης: ALLEN LANE
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0168-0074

A self-portrait in 154 songs, by our greatest living songwriter 'More often than I can count, I've been asked if I would write an autobiography, but the time has never been right. The one thing I've always managed to do, whether at home or on the road, is to write new songs. I know that some people, when they get to a certain age, like to go to a diary to recall day-to-day events from the past, but I have no such notebooks. What I do have are my songs, hundreds of them, which I've learned serve much the same purpose. And these songs span m...

(H/B) WARHOL
A LIFE AS ART
Εκδότης: ALLEN LANE
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0168-0057

When critics attacked Andy Warhol's Marilyn paintings as shallow, the Pop artist was happy to present himself as shallower still: He claimed that he silkscreened to avoid the hard work of painting, although he was actually a meticulous workaholic; in interviews he presented himself as a silly na?f when in private he was the canniest of sophisticates. Blake Gopnik's definitive biography digs deep into the contradictions and radical genius that led Andy Warhol to revolutionise our cultural world. Based on years of archival research and on in...
