7 editions published between 1982 and 1992 in English and held by 315 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Contained within these pages is a humorous anthology of irreverent quips and stories from a myriad of sources. These anecdotes have been carefully selected by Professor Weber and have been classified into broad subject areas. These include tales of Academic Life, fun at Conferences, a section on Warnings, and even a measure of Food and Environmental Concerns."--BOOK JACKET. "This anthology of humorous snippets presents the reader with a fascinating view of the whimsical side of science which, it is hoped, will fascinate, intrigue and lead to many a titter, snigger and guffaw. It also provides the reader with glimpses of the intensely human ambitions, frustrations, and elations of scientists as well as changing attitudes in their sciences."--BOOK JACKET. "Although intended for casual, intermittent reading, the unguarded reader may find themselves unable to put this book down. You have been warned!"--Jacket

The spirituality of age : a seeker's guide to growing older by Robert L Weber( Book )

2 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 119 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A compassionate guide for transforming aging into spiritual growth [bullet] Engage with 25 key questions guiding you to mine previously untapped veins of inspiration and courage [bullet] Find a constructive role for regret and fear and embrace the freedom to become more fully yourself [bullet] Draw from both Eastern and Western spiritual traditions and the latest research in psychological and religious theory to cultivate your spiritual potential As we enter the years beyond midlife, our quest for an approach to aging takes on added urgency and becomes even more relevant in our daily lives. Empowering a new generation of seekers to view aging as a spiritual path, authors Robert Weber and Carol Orsborn reveal that it is by engaging with the difficult questions about loss, meaning, and mortality--questions we can no longer put off or ignore--that we continue to grow. In fact, the realization of our full spiritual potential comes about not by avoiding the challenges aging brings our way but by working through them. Addressing head-on how to make the transition from fears about aging into a fuller, richer appreciation of the next phase of our lives, the authors guide you through 25 key questions that can help you embrace the shadow side of aging as well as the spiritual opportunities inherent in growing older. Sharing their stories and wisdom to both teach and demonstrate what it means to feel energized about the possibilities of your later years, they explore how to find a constructive role for regret, shame, and guilt, realize your value to society, and embrace the freedom of your later years to become more fully yourself. Coming from Catholic Jesuit and Jewish backgrounds respectively, as well as drawing from the latest research in psychological and religious theory, Weber and Orsborn provide their own conversational and candid answers to the 25 key questions, supporting their insightful and compassionate guidance with anecdotes, inspirational readings, and spiritual exercises. By engaging deeply with both the shadow and light sides of aging, our spirits not only learn to cope--but also to soar"--
Kabinett physikalischer Raritäten : eine Anthologie zum Mit-, Nach- und Weiterdenken by Robert L Weber( Book )

10 editions published between 1979 and 1984 in German and held by 106 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Bedauerlicherweise scheint es heutzutage notwendig, die Wissenschaftler vor ihren unattraktiven Klischees und Karikaturen zu retten, mit denen man sie identifiziert. Phy sik, die grundlegende Wissenschaft, scheint am meisten einer Humanisierung zu bedürfen. Altere physikalische Theorien erweckten den Anschein, daß die Physik von einer Ge wißheit zur nächsten fortschreitet, indem wesentliche, entscheidende Experimente durchgeführt und eindeutig interpretiert werden. Dies schuf den Eindruck, daß die Phy siker selbst dem Zweifel keinen Raum lassen, daß sie keine Emotionen und keine Zeit zum Lachen haben - kurz, daß sie unmenschlich sind. Viel zum Mißverständnis des Wissenschaftlers und seiner Arbeitsweise trägt das übliche Erscheinungsbild von Artikeln in wissenschaftlichen Zeitschriften bei. Mit ihren knappen Berichten von erfolgreichen Experimenten und wohlbegründeten Schlußfolge rungen zeigen sie wenig von der unsystematischen Weise der Forschung an den Grenzen des Wissens. Als eine Antwort darauf hat sich eine spöttische, gelegentlich zynische, selbstkritische Haltung bei Wissenschaftlern entwickelt, sozusagen eine Subkultur, die geographische und politische Schranken überschreitet. Experimentatoren spotten über die Nutzlosigkeit von Theoretikern, Glossare entlarven die wahre Bedeutung von oft ge droschenen Phrasen, der korrumpierende Effekt der Riesensummen an Geld wird deut lich, die sich auf die öffentlichen Forschungslabors ergießen, dies alles kann man in Arti keln aus Rußland oder Amerika, Großbritannien oder dem europäischen Kontinent finden
