German mysticism from Hildegard of Bingen to Ludwig Wittgenstein : a literary and intellectual history by Andrew Weeks( Book )

9 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 437 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Paracelsus : speculative theory and the crisis of the early Reformation by Andrew Weeks( Book )

9 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 436 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Paracelsus is regarded as one of the great medical innovators of all time, as a prototype of Goethe's Faust and as a founder of German Renaissance nature philosophy. Recently, his role in the popular "radical Reformation" that coincided with but went beyond Luther's church reform has been recognized as well. A legendary wanderer and rebel, he is an author of undisputed importance, but also one clouded by puzzling ambiguities

Valentin Weigel (1533-1588) : German religious dissenter, speculative theorist, and advocate of tolerance by Andrew Weeks( Book )

10 editions published in 2000 in English and Undetermined and held by 242 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This is the first book-length treatment in English of a central but neglected figure in German intellectual history, Valentin Weigel (1533-1588). Like his great contemporary Michel de Montaigne, Weigel anticipated the advent of a tolerant culture of individual knowledge and conscience." "Taking into account the latest research and editorial achievements of scholars in Germany, this book summarizes what is known of Weigel's life, characterizes the conflicts of his times, discusses his sources, analyzes his writing work by work, and considers his impact on the emergence of tolerance in Germany."--Jacket
The Faustian century : German literature and culture in the age of Luther and Faustus by James M Van der Laan( Book )

7 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 182 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Reformation and Renaissance, though segregated into distinct disciplines today, interacted and clashed intimately in Faust, the great figure that attained European prominence in the anonymous 1587 'Historia von D. Johann Fausten'. The original Faust behind Goethe's great drama embodies a remote culture. In his century, Faust evolved from an obscure cipher to a universal symbol. The age explored here as "the Faustian century" invested the 'Faustbuch' and its theme with a symbolic significance still of exceptional relevance today. The new essays in this volume complement one another, providing insights into the tensions and forces that gave the century its distinct character. Several essays seek Faust's prototypes. Others elaborate the symbolic function of his figure and discern the resonance of his tale in conflicting allegiances. This volume focuses on the intersection of historical accounts and literary imaginings, on shared aspects of the work and its times, on concerns with obedience and transgression, obsessions with the devil and curiosity about magic, and quandaries created by shifting religious and worldly authorities. Contributors: Marguerite de Huszar Allen, Kresten Thue Andersen, Frank Baron, Günther Bonheim, Albrecht Classen, Urs Leo Gantenbein, Karl S. Guthke, Michael Keefer, Paul Ernst Meyer, J. M. van der Laan, Helen Watanabe-O'Kelly, Andrew Weeks. J. M. van der Laan is Professor of German and Andrew Weeks is Professor of German and Comparative Literature, both at Illinois State University

Paracelsus (Theophrastus Bombastus von Hohenheim, 1493-1541) : essential theoretical writings by Paracelsus( Book )

8 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 93 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The daunting writings of Paracelsus--the second largest 16th-century body of writings in German after Luther's--contributed to medicine, natural science, alchemy, philosophy, theology, and esoteric tradition. This volume provides a critical edition of essential writings from the authoritative 1589 Huser Paracelsus alongside new English translations and commentary on the sources and context of the full corpus. The Essential Theoretical Writings incorporate topics ranging from metaphyics, cosmology, faith, religious conflict, magic, gender, and education, to the processes of nature, disease and medication, female and male sufferings, and cures of body and soul. Properly contextualized, these treatises yield rich extracts of Renaissance and Reformation culture, soundings of 16th-century life, and keys to an influential but poorly understood early modern intellectual tradition

"This volume commemorates the four-hundredth anniversary of an intriguing anomaly of the early modern era: the appearance in manuscript in 1612 and the suppression in 1613 of an enduringly influential writing by the shoe-maker Jacob Boehme (ca. 1575-1624): Morgen Röte im auffgang ("Morning Glow Ascending", more commonly known as Aurora)."--Introduction, p.

Balancing the cosmos : living traditions in a modern Maya city( Visual )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This documentary film looks at the nearest contemporary equivalent to an Ancient Maya city where traditional shaman priests continue to carry out rituals as the mediators between this world and the world of the sacred. The balancing of the cosmos is dependent on their prayers and actions. Filmed over the course of eight years, some people grew and changed, others died. The town changed ... tradition continued."--DVD sleeve

Neutral emergence and coarse graining cellular automata by Andrew Weeks( )

2 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Emergent systems are often thought of as special, and are often linked to desirable properties like robustness, fault tolerance and adaptability. But, though not well understood, emergence is not a magical, unfathomable property. We introduce neutral emergence as a new way to explore emergent phenomena, showing that being good enough, enough of the time may actually yield more robust solutions more quickly. We then use cellular automata as a substrate to investigate emergence, and find they are capable of exhibiting emergent phenomena through coarse graining. Coarse graining shows us that emergence is a relative concept - while some models may be more useful, there is no correct emergent model - and that emergence is lossy, mapping the high level model to a subset of the low level behaviour. We develop a method of quantifying the 'goodness' of a coarse graining (and the quality of the emergent model) and use this to find emergent models - and, later, the emergent models we want - automatically
