13 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 571 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The MIT Encyclopedia of Communication Disorders will become the standard reference in this field for both research and clinical use. It offers almost 200 detailed entries, covering the entire range of communication and speech disorders in children and adults, from basic science to clinical diagnosis." "MITECD is divided into four sections that reflect the standard categories within the field (also known as speech-language pathology and audiology): Voice, Speech, Language, and Hearing. Within each category, entries are organized into three subsections: Basic Science, Disorders, and Clinical Management. Basic Science includes relevant information on normal anatomy and physiology, physics, psychology and psychophysics, and linguistics; this provides a scientific foundation for entries in the other subsections. The entries that appear under Disorders offer information on the definition and characterization of specific disorders, and tools for their identification and assessment. The Clinical Management subsection describes appropriate interventions, including behavioral, pharmacological, surgical, and prosthetic."--Jacket

The men in my life by Vivian Gornick( Book )

2 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 302 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"As Anton Chekhov put it so memorably: "Others made me a slave, but I must squeeze the slave out of myself, drop by drop." Vivian Gornick, a major figure of second-wave feminism, found particular inspiration for this struggle in the work of male writers, from H. G. Wells and Randall Jarrell to V. S. Naipual, James Baldwin, Allen Ginsberg, and Philip Roth. From these talented men who had infinitely more permission to do and be than women, but suffered endlessly from the ravages of anger and self-doubt, Gornick learned what it really means to make art while wrestling with one's inner demons." "The Men in My Life is Gornick at her best: interpreting the intimate relationship between Inner life, social history, and great literature."--BOOK JACKET

Up the infinite corridor : MIT and the technical imagination by Fred Hapgood( Book )

1 edition published in 1993 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Up the Infinite Corridor, Fred Hapgood explores the mental landscape of engineering a style of thought, a mode of operation, a particular form of creativity that increasingly defines the trajectory of modern life." "With the Massachusetts Institute of Technology as his point of reference, Hapgood traces the emergence of the profession from its mud-on-the-boots days preoccupied with canals and roads to its present absorption with cyber-space and micromachines. He also shows the evolution in how engineers are trained, from the apprentice working alongside the older man, to "build and test," to the postwar emergence of engineering science and its focus on developing general principles about the natural behavior of artifacts." "But it is when Hapgood explores a selection of research projects currently going on at the Institute that he actually takes us inside the process, bringing to life the struggle to design an artificial human knee that in every way mimics nature, the creation of all automated navigational system for cars, the attempt to infuse a piece of silicon with the capacity for vision, the construction of a human-powered airplane, and the development of robot mice for maze racing in international competition. In so doing, Hapgood gives us a glimpse into an alternate universe he calls "solution space," the black box of possibilities which the engineer moves inside, searching along its various pathways, confronting key to true innovation."
