Postmodernism for beginners by Richard Appignanesi( Book )

78 editions published between 1985 and 2014 in 4 languages and held by 1,257 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"What is postmodernism? Here at last is a long overdue graphic study guide to the maddeningly enigmatic concept used to define our cultural condition in the late twentieth century." "Postmodernism claims that "modernity" which began with 'the Enlightenment', industrialism, Darwin and Marx, has collapsed. We now live in an endlessly 'contemporary culture' full of contested meanings. The resulting postmodern culture embodies parody, pastiche and cultural cross-over. It is a virtual world of hyperreality containing such strange phenomena as post-Holocaust amnesia, Disneyland, cyberspace, and Fukuyama's proclaimed 'end of history'."--Jacket

Introducing philosophy by David Robinson( Book )

38 editions published between 1996 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 740 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Disenchantment with the underlying materialism of much of present-day society is driving many Westerners towards the integrated approach of Eastern philosophy, but often in a vague and generalized form." "In this introduction to the world's oldest philosophies, Richard Osborne and Borin Van Loon brilliantly elucidate the complex strands of Eastern thought from Confucius to Buddha and Islam to Tao. They explain the emphasis on the "nature of being", and on ethical and communal principles." "They also illuminate the search for Enlightenment, showing how these ideas are set within a cosmic whole rather than a framework of practical, scientific, and individual thought."--Jacket

Introducing quantum theory by J. P McEvoy( Book )

17 editions published between 1996 and 2009 in English and held by 604 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Quantum theory confronts us with bizarre paradoxes which contradict the logic of classical physics. At the subatomic level, one particle seems to know what the others are doing, and according to Heisenberg's "uncertainty principle", there is a limit on how accurately nature can be observed. And yet the theory is amazingly accurate and widely applied, explaining all of chemistry and most of physics. "Introducing Quantum Theory" takes us on a step-by-step tour with the key figures, including Planck, Einstein, Bohr, Heisenberg and Schrodinger. Each contributed at least one crucial concept to the theory. The puzzle of the wave-particle duality is here, along with descriptions of the two questions raised against Bohr's "Copenhagen Interpretation"--The famous "dead and alive cat" and the EPR paradox. Both remain unresolved

Stephen Hawking for beginners by J. P McEvoy( Book )

13 editions published between 1995 and 2009 in English and held by 545 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Stephen Hawking is the best-known theoretical physicist alive today but few people outside his field know what he has done. To the public at large he is a legendary figure of tragic dimensions - a brilliant scientist and author of the phenomenal bestseller, A Brief History of Time - and yet confined to a wheelchair, unable to speak or write." "Hawking has mastered the two great theories of physics from this century, Einstein's General Theory of Relativity and Quantum Mechanics. He has made breath-taking discoveries about where these theories break down or overlap, such as the edge of a Black Hole or the Big Bang origin of the Universe. Here is the perfect beginner's guide to Hawking's work including his present research into Quantum Gravity."--Jacket

Introducing consciousness by David Papineau( Book )

17 editions published between 2000 and 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 258 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Modern science may have split the atom and solved the mystery of life, but it has yet to explain the source of conscious feelings. Eminent thinkers from many areas of science are turning to this problem, and a wide range of theories are currently on offer. Yet sceptics doubt whether consciousness can be tamed by conventional science, or even can be understood at all. Introducing Consciousness provides a comprehensive guide to the current state of consciousness studies. It starts with the history of the philosophical relation between mind and matter, and proceeds to scientific attempts to exp
Introducing Wittgenstein by John M Heaton( Book )

22 editions published between 1996 and 2013 in English and held by 228 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Ludwig Wittgenstein has captured the popular imagination as the modern Socrates, the fascinating master of enigmatic reasoning who, with his icy logic, convinced Bertrand Russell that there was a hippo in the room. He is an icon of modernism, but what did he really say?" "In Introducing Wittgenstein we meet a strange man, a rigorous logician who prized poetry above philosophy, who inherited a fortune and gave it away, who sought death in the trenches of the First World War, a great teacher who advised his students to give up philosophy, a solitary man who nonetheless inspired lifelong friendships. We are also given a clear and accessible guide to Wittgenstein's central work, the Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus, a glacier of logic, and his later, friendlier Philosophical Investigations. Here is an accessible introduction for anyone baffled by the complexity or intrigued by the reputation of this great 20th-century philosopher."--Jacket
