His vintage-by-vintage reports demonstrate thoroughness and discernment and he has set uncompromising standards in assessing each vintage from 1961 to 1997 for every major chateau.
This book explores some of the opportunities and risks - economic, social and technological - that decision-makers will have to address, and outlines what needs to be done to foster society's capacity to manage its future more flexibly and with broader participation of its citizens.

From Arithmetic to Metaphysics
Author: Ciro de Florio, Alessandro Giordani
Publisher: Walter de Gruyter GmbH & Co KG
Published in honor of Sergio Galvan, this collection concentrates on the application of logical and mathematical methods for the study of central issues in formal philosophy. The volume is subdivided into four sections, dedicated to logic and philosophy of logic, philosophy of mathematics, philosophy of science, metaphysics and philosophy of religion. The contributions adress, from a logical point of view, some of the main topics in these areas. The first two sections include formal treatments of: truth and paradoxes; definitions by abstraction; the status of abstract objects, such as mathematical objects and universal concepts; and the structure of explicit knowledge. The last two sections include papers on classical problems in philosophy of science, such as the status of subjective probability, the notion of verisimilitude, the notion of approximation, and the theory of mind and mental causation, and specific issues in metaphysics and philosophy of religion, such as the ontology of species, actions, and intelligible worlds, and the logic of religious belonging.

Paul often says that God "justifies" people in Christ, but what does that mean God does? The language appears legal, but many other interpretations have been suggested. BEginning from the use of this language in Judaism and early Christianity, James B. PRothro investigates biblical legal conflicts and the terminology of "justification" in Paul s letters to determine what it means for Paul to say that God as judge is the "justifier" of those who trust in Christ.
Telling What She Thinks
Author: Tomoo Ueda
Publisher: Walter de Gruyter GmbH & Co KG
This book aims at analyzing semantic values of proper names occurring in belief reports. The focus is on the discussion about Frege’s puzzle concerning belief reports. The goal is to analyze Frege’s puzzle without giving up semantic innocence. To this end, a pragmatic analysis named ‘VarCA analysis’ is proposed.
This volume, written by Abba Isayeyyas, is a hagiographical history of Akala Krestos, a sixteenth-century Gondarite prince. When there was a rumor that the prince's father, Galawdewos, was preparing to overthrow his brother Emperor Fasiladas (1632-1667) - 'he amassed at that time a private army of mighty ones' - a scheme was designed for Galawdewos to appear at the palace. However, he was slain as soon as he arrived. Akala Krestos was in school at that time. When one of his father's attendants informed him about his father's murder, he fled for his life. He walked from school in Gondar to the Monastery of Dabra Libanos in Shoa where he took the monastic garb and became a great ascetic. He visited the Monastery of Abuna Gabra Manfas Qeddus (Zeqwala) before he returned home and built a modest monastery called Medra Zoga.
Die Arbeit bedient sich der Quantifizierung von Sicherheitsanalysen, um genauere Schranken für die maximale Ausführungszeit eingebetteter Systeme ermitteln zu können. Dabei stehen vor allem sicherheitskritische eingebettete Systeme im Vordergrund. Bei Systemen dieser Art kommen oft Fehlertoleranzmechanismen zum Einsatz, die mittels herkömmlicher Verfahren typischerweise sehr konservativ behandelt werden und nur schwer zu analysieren sind.
