Postmodernism for beginners by Richard Appignanesi( Book )

82 editions published between 1985 and 2014 in English and Persian and held by 1,168 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 quantum theory by J. P McEvoy( Book )

18 editions published between 1996 and 2009 in English and held by 608 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"How does quantum theory explain all of the chemistry and most of physics? Why does this theory upset common sense? At the sub-atomic level, one particle seems to know what others are doing, so-called non-locality, and there is a limit on how accurately nature can be observed, says Heisenberg's uncertainty principle. Yet the theory is amazingly accurate and widely applied." "Introducing Quantum Theory takes us on a step-by-step tour with the key players - Planck, Einstein, Bohr, Heisenberg, Schrodinger and others. Each contributed at least one crucial concept to the theory. The puzzle of the wave-particle duality is here along with description of the two questions raised against Bohr's Copenhagen Interpretation ... the famous "dead and alive cat" and the EPR paradox. Both remain unresolved at the end of the 20th century."--Jacket

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

15 editions published between 1995 and 2009 in English and Polish and held by 547 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 provides a comprehensive guide to the current state of consciousness studies
Introducing Wittgenstein by John M Heaton( Book )

25 editions published between 1996 and 2013 in English and Undetermined 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
Introducing romanticism by Duncan Heath( Book )

16 editions published between 1999 and 2006 in English and held by 221 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Romanticism is crucial to an understanding of modern Western culture. Philosophy, art, literature, music and politics were all transformed in the turbulent period between the French Revolution of 1789 and the Communist Manifesto of 1848. This was the age of the 'Romantic revolution', when modern attitudes to political and artistic freedom were born. When we think of Romanticism, flamboyant figures such as Byron or Shelley instantly spring to mind, but what about Napoleon or Hegel, Turner or Blake, Wagner or Marx, who also emerged from this great period of turmoil and change? How was it that
