Philosophy in the present by Alain Badiou( Book )

3 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 282 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Two controversial thinkers discuss a timeless but nonetheless urgent question: should philosophy interfere in the world? Nothing less than philosophy is at stake because, according to Badiou, philosophy is nothing but interference and commitment and will not be restrained by academic discipline. Philosophy is strange and new, and yet speaks in the name of all - as Badiou shows with his theory of universality. Similarly, Zizek believes that the philosopher must intervene, contrary to all expectations, in the key issues of the time. He can offer no direction, but this only shows that the question has been posed incorrectly: it is valid to change the terms of the debate and settle on philosophy as abnormality and excess. At once an invitation to philosophy and an introduction to the thinking of two of the most topical and controversial philosophers writing today, this concise volume will be of great interest to students and general readers alike. -- Publisher description

Into the thin air of Everest : mountain of dreams, mountain of doom( Visual )

3 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 112 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Since 1856 when Everest was first measured, man has been obsessed with conquering her. Everest: The Quest captures this obsession through the incredible true stories of the early Everest explorers -- George Leigh Mallory (who climbed it "because it is there" and who mysteriously disappeared with Andrew Irvine just short of the summit!) Noel Odell, Sir Edmund Hillary and Tensing Norga -- men of vision and burning desire who gladly ventured into uncharted territory as part of their dangerous quest to reach Everest's summit. Equipped with gear and clothing considered primitive by today's standards, they faced down the threat of crippling frostbite, mind-altering altitude sickness and the always present danger of a fatal fall. Some persevered and returned home triumphant -- others, many others, were never to be seen again. -- website

1 edition published in 1999 in English and held by 106 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease (CJD), an incurable illness that destroys the human brain, is generally transmitted genetically or through blood transfusions. Cattle share a similar illness called bovine spongiform encephalopathy, also known as mad cow disease. When people with no history of CJD or blood transfusions began contracting the disease, the question arose: could eating tainted beef be the cause? Neurologist Dr. Stanley Prusiner answered the question--and won the Nobel prize--when he discovered the harmless prion and its mutated form, which is the cause of both diseases. This program is a valuable source of information on animal and human encephalopathies, whose spread threatens to become a worldwide epidemic
