(P/B) GODEL, ESCHER, BACH
AN ETERNAL GOLDEN BRAID
Εκδότης: BASIC BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0739-0081

A metaphorical fugue on minds and machines in the spirit of Lewis Carroll. Douglas Hofstadter's book is concerned directly with the nature of "maps" or links between formal systems. However, according to Hofstadter, the formal system that underlies all mental activity transcends the system that supports it. If life can grow out of the formal chemical substrate of the cell, if consciousness can emerge out of a formal system of firing neurons, then so too will computers attain human intelligence. Goedel, Escher, Bach is a wonderful explorati...

(P/B) Strategic Vision
America and the Crisis of Global Power
Εκδότης: BASIC BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0739-0102

By 1991, following the disintegration first of the Soviet bloc and then of the Soviet Union itself, the United States was left standing tall as the only global super-power. The 21st century seemed destined to be yet another American century. But that optimism did not last long as the stock market bubble and the costly foreign unilateralism of the younger Bush presidency, as well as the financial catastrophe of 2008 jolted America - and much of the West - into a sudden recognition of its systemic vulnerability to unregulated greed. In Strat...

(H/B) EXISTENTIAL PSYCHOTHERAPY
Εκδότης: BASIC BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0739-0031

Existential therapy has been practiced and continues to be practiced in many forms and situations throughout the world. But until now, it has lacked a coherent structure, an analysis of its tenets, and an evaluation of its usefulness. Irvin Yalom, whose Theory and Practice of Group Psychotherapy has rendered such a service to that discipline since 1970, provides existential psychotherapy with a background, a synthesis, and a framework. Organized around what Yalom identifies as the four "ultimate concerns of life"-death, freedom, existentia...

(H/B) INTELLECTUALS AND RACE
Εκδότης: BASIC BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0739-0089

Intellectuals and Race is a radical book in the original sense of one that goes to the root of the problem. The role of intellectuals in racial strife is explored in an international context that puts the American experience in a wholly new light. The views of individual intellectuals have spanned the spectrum, but the views of intellectuals as a whole have tended to cluster. Indeed, these views have clustered at one end of the spectrum in the early twentieth century and then clustered at the opposite end of the spectrum in the late twent...

(P/B) FREE TO LEARN
WHY UNLEASHING THE INSTICT TO PLAY WILL MAKE OUR CHILDREN HAPPIER, MORE SELF-RELIANT, AND BETTER STUDENTS FOR LIFE
Εκδότης: BASIC BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0739-0084

In Free to Learn, developmental psychologist Peter Gray argues that in order to foster children who will thrive in today's constantly changing world, we must entrust them to steer their own learning and development. Drawing on evidence from anthropology, psychology, and history, he demonstrates that free play is the primary means by which children learn to control their lives, solve problems, get along with peers, and become emotionally resilient. A brave, counterintuitive proposal for freeing our children from the shackles of the curiosit...

(P/B) THE TRUTH WILL SET YOU FREE
Εκδότης: BASIC BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0739-0052

More than twenty years ago, a little-known Swiss psychoanalyst wrote a book that changed the way many people viewed themselves and their world. In simple but powerful prose, the deeply moving Drama of the Gifted Child showed how parents unconsciously form and deform the emotional lives of their children. Alice Miller's stories about the roots of suffering in childhood resonated with readers, and her book soon became a backlist best seller. In The Truth Will Set You Free Miller returns to the intensely personal tone and themes of her best-l...

(P/B) EVOLUTION OF DESIRE
STRATEGIES OF HUMAN MATING
Εκδότης: BASIC BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0739-0067

If we all want love, why is there so much conflict in our most cherished relationships? To answer this question we must look into our evolutionary past, argues prominent psychologist David M. Buss. Based one of the largest studies of human mating ever undertaken, encompassing more than 10,000 people of all ages from thirty-seven cultures worldwide, The Evolution of Desire is the first work to present a unified theory of human mating behavior. Drawing on a wide range of examples of mating behavior - from lovebugs to elephant seals, from the...

MAINLY ELECTROMAGNETISM AND MATTER (THE NEW MILLENNIUM EDITION)
Εκδότης: BASIC BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0739-0099

"The whole thing was basically an experiment," Richard Feynman said late in his career, looking back on the origins of his lectures. The experiment turned out to be hugely successful, spawning publications that have remained definitive and introductory to physics for decades. Ranging from the basic principles of Newtonian physics through such formidable theories as general relativity and quantum mechanics, Feynman's lectures stand as a monument of clear exposition and deep insight. Timeless and collectible, the lectures are essential readi...
