(P/B) THE DESIGN OF EVERYDAY THINGS
Εκδότης: BASIC BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0739-0088

Even the smartest among us can feel inept as we fail to figure out which light switch or oven burner to turn on, or whether to push, pull, or slide a door. The fault, argues this ingenious, even liberating, book, lies not in ourselves, but in product design that ignores the needs of users and the principles of cognitive psychology. The problems range from ambiguous and hidden controls to arbitrary relationships between controls and functions, coupled with a lack of feedback or other assistance and unreasonable demands on memorization. The ...

(P/B) A UNIVERSE OF CONSCIOUSNESS
HOW MATTER BECOMES IMAGINATION
Εκδότης: BASIC BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0739-0087

In A Universe of Consciousness, Gerald Edelman builds on the radical ideas he introduced in his monumental trilogy-Neural Darwinism, Topobiology, and The Remembered Present-to present for the first time an empirically supported full-scale theory of consciousness. He and the neurobiolgist Giulio Tononi show how they use ingenious technology to detect the most minute brain currents and to identify the specific brain waves that correlate with particular conscious experiences. The results of this pioneering work challenge the conventional wisd...

(P/B) SCHOPENHAUER'S PORCUPINES
INTIMACY AND ITS DILEMMAS - FIVE STORIES OF PSYCHOTHERAPY
Εκδότης: BASIC BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0739-0080

Each generation of therapists can boast of only a few writers like Deborah Luepnitz, whose sympathy and wit shine through a fine, luminous prose. In Schopenhauer's Porcupines she recounts five true stories from her practice, stories of patients who range from the super-rich to the homeless and who grapple with panic attacks, psychosomatic illness, marital despair, and sexual recklessness. Intimate, original, and triumphantly funny, Schopenhauer's Porcupines goes further than any other book in unveiling the secrets of "how talking helps." (...

(H/B) THE DEPTHS
THE EVOLUTIONARY ORIGINS OF THE DEPRESSION EPIDEMIC
Εκδότης: BASIC BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0739-0086

Nearly every depressed person is assured by doctors, well-meaning friends and family, the media, and ubiquitous advertisements that the underlying problem is a chemical imbalance. Such a simple defect should be fixable, yet despite all of the resources that have been devoted to finding a pharmacological solution, depression remains stubbornly widespread. Why are we losing this fight? In this humane and illuminating challenge to defect models of depression, psychologist Jonathan Rottenberg argues that depression is a particularly severe out...

Εκδότης: BASIC BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0739-0083

In The Design of Future Things, best-selling author Donald A. Norman presents a revealing examination of smart technology, from smooth-talking GPS units to cantankerous refrigerators. Exploring the links between design and human psychology, he offers a consumer-oriented theory of natural human-machine interaction that can be put into practice by the engineers and industrial designers of tomorrow's thinking machines. A fascinating look at the perils and promise of the intelligent objects of the future, The Design of Future Things is a must-...

(P/B) JUST AND UNJUST WARS
A MORAL ARGUMENT WITH HISTORICAL ILLUSTRATIONS
Εκδότης: BASIC BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0739-0016

This classic work of political ethics radically reconfigured the way that we think about war. From the Athenian attack on Melos to the My Lai massacre, from the wars in the Balkans through the first war in Iraq, Michael Walzer examines the moral issues surrounding military theory, war crimes, and the spoils of war. He studies a variety of conflicts over the course of history, as well as the testimony of those who have been most directly involved - participants, decision makers, and victims. In his new introduction, he specifically addresse...

SYMBIOSIS AND INDIVIDUATION
Εκδότης: BASIC BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0739-0047

(P/B) THE ART OF BIBLICAL POETRY
Εκδότης: BASIC BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0739-0079

Three decades ago, renowned literary expert Robert Alter radically expanded the horizons of biblical scholarship by recasting the Bible as not only a human creation but a work of literary art deserving studied criticism. In The Art of Biblical Poetry, his companion to the seminal The Art of Biblical Narrative, Alter takes his analysis beyond narrative craft to investigate the use of Hebrew poetry in the Bible. Updated with a new preface, myriad revisions, and passages from Alter's own critically acclaimed biblical translations, The Art of ...

(P/B) SUPERSYMMETRY AND BEYOND
FROM THE HIGGS BOSON TO THE NEW PHYSICS
Εκδότης: BASIC BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0739-0074

The epic story of the quest to uncover a fully unified theory of physics, revised to reflect the possible discovery of the Higgs Boson. "Forget body-piercing, dot-coms and bare-naked navels. The next Really Big Thing is supersymmetry: the paradoxical theory that our fundamental understanding of nature can be made dramatically simpler by roughly doubling the number of particles in it and, um, maybe adding four more dimensions. Supersymmetry, or SUSY to adepts, embodies one of the most profound beliefs in the history of physical science: Th...

(P/B) THE CUBE AND THE CATHEDRAL
EUROPE, AMERICA, AND POLITICS WITHOUT GOD
Εκδότης: BASIC BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0739-0075

Why do Europeans and Americans see the world so differently? Why do Europeans and Americans have such different understandings of democracy in the twenty-first century? Why is Europe dying, demographically? In The Cube and the Cathedral, George Weigel offers a penetrating critique of "Europe's problem" and draws out its lessons for the rest of the democratic world. Contrasting the civilization that produced the starkly modernist "cube" of the Great Arch of La Defense in Paris with the civilization that produced the "cathedral," Notre-Dame,...

(H/B) THE END OF POWER
FROM BOARDROOMS TO BATTLEFIELDS AND CHURCHES TO STATES, WHY BEING IN CHARGE ISN'T WHAT IT USED TO BE
Εκδότης: BASIC BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0739-0073

We know that power is shifting: From West to East and North to South, from presidential palaces to public squares, from once formidable corporate behemoths to nimble startups and, slowly but surely, from men to women. But power is not merely shifting and dispersing. It is also decaying. Those in power today are more constrained in what they can do with it and more at risk of losing it than ever before. In The End of Power, award-winning columnist and former Foreign Policy editor Moises Naim illuminates the struggle between once-dominant me...

With insights gained from visits to classrooms in leading suburban schools, he analyzes performance by considering the skills needed to get a good job and become a productive citizen. Highlighting discussions with young people and the adults who work with them, Wagner also explains the ways in which today's generation is differently motivated to excel.A manifesto for the twenty-first...

(H/B) LIFE'S RATCHET
HOW MOLECULAR MACHINES EXTRACT ORDER FROM CHAOS
Εκδότης: BASIC BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0739-0071

Life is an enduring mystery. Yet, science tells us that living beings are merely sophisticated structures of lifeless molecules. If this view is correct, where do the seemingly purposeful motions of cells and organisms originate? In Life's Ratchet, physicist Peter M. Hoffmann locates the answer to this age-old question at the nanoscale. Below the calm, ordered exterior of a living organism lies microscopic chaos, or what Hoffmann calls the molecular storm - specialized molecules immersed in a whirlwind of colliding water molecules. Our cel...

(H/B) PHYSICS IN MIND
A QUANTUM VIEW OF THE BRAIN
Εκδότης: BASIC BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0739-0070

No one can escape a sense of awe when reflecting on the workings of the mind: we see, we hear, we are aware of the world around us. But what is the mind? In Physics in Mind, eminent biophysicist Werner R. Loewenstein seeks an answer in the mechanisms of physics. Bringing information theory - the idea that all information can be quantified and encoded in bits - to bear on recent advances in the neurosciences, Loewenstein reveals inside the brain a web of immense computational power capable of rendering a coherent representation of the world...

(H/B) THE RISE OF THE CREATIVE CLASS
REVISITED (10TH ANNIVERSARY EDITION)
Εκδότης: BASIC BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0739-0069

Ten years ago, Richard Florida published a path-breaking book about the forces that were reshaping our economy, our geography, our work, and our whole way of life. Weaving story-telling with reams of original research, he traced a fundamental theme through a host of seemingly unrelated changes in American society: the growing role of creativity. In the decade since, we have endured a series of world shattering events-from the collapse of the tech bubble to 9/11 to the economic meltdown of 2008-any one of which might have been sufficient to...

(P/B) THE END OF UTOPIA
POLITICS AND CULTURE IN AN AGE OF APATHY
Εκδότης: BASIC BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0739-0057

We are facing the end of politics altogether, Russell Jacoby argues in The End of Utopia. Political contestation is premised on people's capacity for offering competing visions of the future, but in a world that has run out of political ideas and no longer harbors any utopian visions, real political opposition is no longer possible. In particular, Jacoby traces the demise of liberal and leftist politics. Leftist intellectuals and critics no longer envision a different society, only a modified one. The left once dismissed the market as expl...
