Endophysics, time, quantum, and the subjective : proceedings of the ZIF Interdisciplinary Research Workshop, 17-22 January 2005, Bielefeld, Germany by ZIF Interdisciplinary Research Workshop( )

7 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 1,141 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Endophysics, Time, Quantum and the Subjective" is the first systematic cross- and trans-disciplinary appraisal of the endophysical paradigm and its possible role in our understanding of Nature. Focusing on three of the most pressing issues of contemporary science, the interpretation of quantum theory, the nature of time, and the problem of consciousness, it provides the reader with some forefront research, concepts and ideas in these areas, such as incessant Big Bang, geometrizing of "mental space-times," and a contextual view of quantum mechanics and/or a view of the Universe as a self-evolving quantum automaton. Although primarily aimed at academics, this engaging volume can be read by anyone interested in modern physics, philosophy, psychology and cognitive sciences

Communicating meaning : the evolution and development of language by B. M Velichkovskiĭ( Book )

1 edition published in 1996 in English and held by 349 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Dealing specifically with the origins and development of human language, this book is based on a selection of materials from a recent international conference held at the Center of Interdisciplinary Research at the University of Bielefeld in Germany. The significance of the volume is that it testifies to paradigmatic changes currently in progress. The changes are from the typical emphasis on the syntactic properties of language and cognition to an analysis of biological and cultural factors which make these formal properties possible. The chapters provide in-depth coverage of such to
Transcendental arguments and science : essays in epistemology by Peter Bieri( Book )

3 editions published in 1979 in English and held by 318 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The goal of the present volume is to discuss the notion of a 'conceptual framework' or 'conceptual scheme', which has been dominating much work in the analysis and justification of knowledge in recent years. More specifi­ cally, this volume is designed to clarify the contrast between two competing approaches in the area of problems indicated by this notion: On the one hand, we have the conviction, underlying much present-day work in the philosophy of science, that the best we can hope for in the justifi­ cation of empirical knowledge is to reconstruct the conceptual means actually employed by science, and to develop suitable models for analyzing conceptual change involved in the progress of science. This view involves the assumption that we should stop taking foundational questions of epistemology seriously and discard once and for all the quest for uncontrovertible truth. The result­ ing program of justifying epistemic claims by subsequently describing patterns of inferentially connected concepts as they are at work in actual science is closely connected with the idea of naturalizing epistemology, with concep­ tual relativism, and with a pragmatic interpretation of knowledge. On the other hand, recent epistemology tends to claim that no subsequent reconstruction of actually employed conceptual frameworks is sufficient for providing epistemic justification for our beliefs about the world. This second claim tries to resist the naturalistic and pragmatic approach to epistemology and insists on taking the epistemological sceptic seriously

The contributions are of interest to researchers in physics as well as in engineering and chemistry
The Culture of the Stalin period( Book )

3 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 281 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Up to now the culture of the Stalin period has been studied mainly from a political or ideological point of view. In this book renowned specialists from many countries approach the problem rather 'from inside'. The authors deal with numerous aspects of Stalinist culture such as art, literature, architecture, film and popular culture. Yet the volume is more than a mere collection of studies on special issues. It is an inquiry into the very nature of a certain type of culture, its symbols, rites and myths. The book will be useful not only for students of Soviet culture but also for a wider audience

Quantum dynamics : models and mathematics by Ludwig Streit( Book )

5 editions published between 1976 and 1977 in English and held by 195 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The contributions to this volume deal with topics ranging over constructive and general quantum field theory and related algebraic problems, non-renormalizable models, equilibrium sta tistical mechanics, critical phenomena, and nonlinear equations modelling the onset of turbulence. They are based on lectures intended to provide the 1975/1976 research group "Mathematical Problems of Quantum Dynamics" at the Centre for Interdisciplinary Research (ZiF) of Bielefeld University with an input reflecting important recent develop ments and presented by leading experts in the pertinent fields of research. They further reflect a situation of unusually active and fruit ful exchange not. only between various specializations of theoretical physics which deal with the specific problems of large systems but also of a lively two-way interaction with mathematics which stimulates and furthers the progress of both disciplines. Thanks are due to the contributors, to the Preparatory Committee - H. Behncke, P. Blanchard, K. Hepp, O. Steinmann, A.S. Wightman -, to the University of Bielefeld for the spon sorship of these lectures, to the directors and staff of ZiF who made them possible, and to Miss V.C. Fulland and Miss M. Kamper for their calm and competent production of the manuscript
Energy storage and redistribution in molecules by Jürgen Hinze( Book )

3 editions published in 1983 in English and held by 188 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

We characterize an isolated molecule by its compos~t~on, i.e. the number and types of atoms forming the molecule, its structure, i.e. the geometrical arrangement of the composite atoms with respect to each other, and its possible, i.e. quantum mechanically allowed, stationary energy states. Conceptually we separate the latter, being aware that this is an approximation, into electronic, vibrational and rotational states, including fine and hyperfine structure splittings. To be sure, there is an intimate relation between molecular structure and molecular energy states, in fact it is this relation we use, when we obtain structural information through spectroscopy, where we determine transitions between various stationary states of the molecule. The concepts above have proven extremely useful in chemistry and spectroscopy, however, the awareness of the limitations of these concepts has grown in recent years with the increasing recognition of (i) fluctional molecules, (ii) multiphoton absorption processes and (iii) influences due to the surroundings on "isolated" molecules
Bounded rational behavior in experimental games and markets : proceedings of the Fourth Conference on Experimental Economics, Bielefeld, West Germany, September 21-25, 1986 by Reinhard Tietz( Book )

5 editions published in 1988 in English and held by 184 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The book reports on recent experimental research on expectations and decision making in bargaining, markets, auctions, or coalition formation situations.

The Mechanosensory lateral line : neurobiology and evolution by S Coombs( Book )

3 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 176 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The mechanosensory lateral line system of aquatic animals is now widely recognized as an important sensory system in its own right, with unique contributions to animal behavior. Major technological advances in neuroanatomy, neurophysiology, and stimulus measurement have led to significant strides in the understanding of its organization and functional significance, but questions about its evolution and relationship to the electrosensory and auditory systems remain. This book presents a comprehensive survey of our knowledge of the mechanosensory lateral line, covering * morphological variation and function * hydrodynamics and the role of flow patterns * developmental, evolutionary, and regenerative mechanisms * sensory transduction * sensory processing by the peripheral and central nervous system * signal analysis and neural mechanisms of behavior * specialized lateral line and related systems. Each contribution provides a unique blend of literature and current research
