Dieses historische Buch kann zahlreiche Tippfehler und fehlende Textpassagen aufweisen. Kaufer konnen in der Regel eine kostenlose eingescannte Kopie des originalen Buches vom Verleger herunterladen (ohne Tippfehler). Ohne Indizes. Nicht dargestellt. 1855 edition. Auszug: ...in etwas hinter sich zu suchen haben, was ihrem Schein den Grund und Kern gebe, haben sie ihn in der Totalitat zu suchen, von der sie Beide Glieder sind; das Ganze ist der Halt und Kern des Ganzen und alles Dessen, was darin. Wurzel, Stengel, Blatt und Blute einer Pflanze konnen ihre Existenz nicht wechselseitig aufeinander begrunden wollen, sie bestehen als Theile der ganzen Pflanze und die ganze Pflanze, so wie sie uns mit unsern Sinnen erscheint, zugleich mit unsern Sinnen als Theil und in Unterordnung der ganzen Welt und ihrer das Ganze ubergreifenden Gesetze). Im Ganzen hat man allen Grund des Einzelnen zu suchen, nicht in etwas noch mehr Einzelnem und Anderm; doch kann man untersuchen, wie und nach welchen Pegeln sich das Einzelne zum Ganzen fugt und was die letzten Elemente. Im Lichte, was durch das Ganze scheint, hat man die Klarheit des Ganzen zu suchen, nicht in etwas Dunkelm hinter Welt und Licht; doch kann man das Licht selbst mit hoherm Licht erleuchten, indem man die Verhaltnisse der Lichterscheinung in sich und zu Dem, was sie bescheint, ergrundet. Also man lasse sich nicht dadurch irren, dass Sichtbares und Fuhlbares und Sehen, Fuhlen selbst doch nur. moglich ist, nach Massgabe als anderes Sichtbare und Fuhlbare und sogar noch mehr als Sichtbares und Fuhlbares und Sehen und Fuhlen moglich ist, als existire eigentlich nichts wahrhaft von all Dem, sei noch etwas in seinem Rucken zu suchen, was durch sich existirt. Das, was allein durch sich existirt, ist nicht etwas ausser all diesem Schein, ist vielmehr das Ganze, was all diesen Schein selbst einschliesst und eben nur in der Erscheinung...
BION [Believe It Or Not], Book #3 of the CUL8R Time Travel Mystery/Romance series. Change the past, Save the future. Four high school friends are able to do two things no one else on the planet can do . . . talk with dead people and time travel to the past. However, Kelly, who lost her phone during their last adventure, is temporarily grounded. She worries that her new friends will time travel without her, leaving her all alone in her new home in Ft. Myers Beach, Florida. But they surprise her on her birthday and soon they are back in Scott’s lab, listening to the old radio that Thomas Edison had invented and called “The Telephone to the Dead”. As they slowly turn the dial Kelly, Scott, Austin and Zoey hear hundreds of sad, lonely voices of souls that have passed but apparently never moved on, pleading for help. When they first discovered the radio in Kelly’s aunt’s garage, they had been touched by the cries and pleas coming from its speakers, but they had no way to go back in time to help them. That is, until Scott reveals an invention of his own . . . a time travel app. They’ve already tested it twice, with both trips being very successful, but not without danger. Even though they returned with a few scrapes and bruises, and even a gunshot wound, they are eager to go on a new adventure and help solve a mystery. A young woman’s voice comes through and asks them to find her twin brother, Jesse, who had run away to the circus in 1927, then disappeared and was never heard from again. Going back and living with a circus sounds like fun. Plus an old book written by his sister provides a glimpse into the past . . . as well as a photo of Jesse, a photo that grabs their attention and sets the girls' hearts racing. They land in a cornfield in Wichita Falls, Texas as the circus is setting up. It doesn’t take them long to discover that circus life is not all glamour and fun; it’s a lot of hard work. As usual, they jump in and quickly find jobs, places to sleep and new friends. But most importantly, they find Jesse. Now all they have to do is keep him alive. For Zoey and Jesse, it’s love at first sight. It’s a first romance for both of them and their love blossoms as they travel from city to city. Zoey knows she’s too young to settle down and that Jesse is from a different time and culture, but her feelings for him are strong. Her and her friends’ time travel mission has taken on a new dimension. Should they be successful and save his life, will Zoey be able to let him go? Is it possible for him to come to 2013 with her? Is it possible for her to stay in 1927 with him? Ultimately, can she give up everything she has in the present for true love in the past? Jesse’s talent working with the big cats catches the attention of the Martin Maxwell, the owner of the circus. Maxwell promotes him to the center ring as a replacement for their current lion tamer who is planning on moving up to the Ringling and Barnum & Bailey Circus. Unfortunately, not everyone shares Zoey’s love for Jesse and wants him to disappear forever. Kelly, Scott, Austin and Zoey must figure out who wants Jesse dead and stop him or her before Jesse’s fate is sealed.

It is only recently, with the increasing interest in origami and folding in natural sciences and the humanities, that the fold as a new conception in a whole range of disciplines has begun to be conceived in a broader way. Folding as a material and structural process offers a new methodology to think about the close relationship of matter, form and code. It henceforth crosses out old dichotomies, such as the organic and the inorganic or nature and technology, and blurs the boundaries between experimental, conceptual and historical approaches. This anthology aims to unfold this new interdisciplinary field and its disciplinary impact, ranging from materials science, biology, architecture, and mathematics to literature and philosophy.

The book is a systematic study of the issue of self-individuation in the scholastic debate on principles of individuation (principia individuationis). The point of departure is a general formulation of the problem of individuation acceptable for all the participants of the scholastic debate: a principle of individuation of x is what makes x individual (in various possible senses of ‘making something individual’). The book argues against a prima facie plausible view that everything that is individual is individual by itself and not by anything distinct from it (Strong Self-Individuation Thesis). The keynote topic of the book is a detailed analysis of the two competing ways of rejecting the Strong Self-Individuation Thesis: the Scotistic and the Thomistic one. The book defends the latter one, discussing a number of issues concerning substantial and accidental forms, essences, properties, instantiation, the Thomistic notion of materia signata, Frege’s Begriff-Gegenstand distinction, and Geach’s form-function analogy developed in his writings on Aquinas. In the context of both the scholastic and contemporary metaphysics, the book offers a framework for dealing with issues of individuality and defends a Thomistic theory of individuation.
