Talks to teachers on psychology and to students on some of life's ideals by William James( Book )

1 edition published in 1899 in English and held by 402 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 1892 I was asked by the Harvard Corporation to give a few public lectures on psychology to the Cambridge teachers. The talks now printed form the substance of that course, which has since then been delivered at various places to various teacher-audiences. I have found by experience that what my hearers seem least to relish is analytical technicality, and what they most care for is concrete practical application. So I have gradually weeded out the former, and left the latter unreduced; and, now that I have at last written out the lectures, they contain a minimum of what is deemed 'scientific' in psychology, and are practical and popular in the extreme. My main desire has been to make teachers conceive, and if possible, reproduce sympathetically in their imagination, the mental life of their pupil as the sort of active unity which he/she feels it to be. Readers acquainted with my larger books on Psychology will meet much familiar phraseology. The talks to students, which conclude the volume, were written in response to invitations to deliver 'addresses' to students at women's colleges. The first one was to the graduating class of the Boston Normal School of Gymnastics. Properly, it continues the series of talks to teachers. The second and the third address belong together, and continue another line of thought"--Pref. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2005 APA, all rights reserved)
The Edwin Smith surgical papyrus( Book )

1 edition published in 1930 in English and held by 321 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Smith Papyrus was written in Egyptian hieratic script around the 17th century BCE, but probably based on material from a thousand years earlier. The text is a treatise on trauma surgery and consists of 48 cases dealing with wounds and trauma. Each case is laid out using a carefully prescribed formula: a description of the injury; diagnosis; prognosis; treatment; and further explanations of the case, which resemble footnotes. This papyrus is unlike most other medical papyri in that it is chiefly rational and does not usually bring the supernatural into the explanations or treatments for injuries-for instance; there is only one incantation. A digital facsimile created by the National Library of Medicine in 2010 reconstructs the scroll from 17 panels into which it was cut in the 19th century, and represents the red and black calligraphy on a simulated scroll, with zoom feature and pop-up commentary within the text

The grammar of science by Karl Pearson( Book )

1 edition published in 1900 in English and held by 169 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

First published in 1892, this important work by the mathematician Karl Pearson (1857-1936) presents a thoroughly positivist account of the nature of science. Pearson claims that 'the scientific method is the sole gateway to the whole region of knowledge', rejecting additional fields of inquiry such as metaphysics. He also emphasises that science can, and should, describe only the 'how' of phenomena and never the 'why'. A scholar of King's College, Cambridge, and later a professor at King's College and University College London, Pearson made significant contributions to the philosophy of science. Including helpful chapter summaries, this book explores in detail a number of scientific concepts, such as matter, energy, space and time. The work influenced such thinkers as Albert Einstein, who considered it to be essential reading when he created his study group, the Olympia Academy, at the age of twenty-three
