Aldo Leopold's Odyssey, Tenth Anniversary Edition Book by Julianne Lutz Warren

Aldo Leopold's Odyssey, Tenth Anniversary Edition Book
  • Author : Julianne Lutz Warren

Summary: In 2006, Julianne Lutz Warren(néeNewton) asked readers to rediscover one of history's most renowned conservationists. Aldo Leopold's Odyssey was hailed by The New York Times as a "biography of ideas,” making "us feel the loss of what might have followed A Sand County Almanac by showing us in authoritative detail what led up to it.” Warren's astute narrative quickly became an essential part of the Leopold canon, introducing new readers to the father of wildlife ecology and offering a fresh perspective to even the most seasoned scholars. A decade later, as our very concept of wilderness is changing, Warren frames Leopold's work in the context of the Anthropocene. With a new preface and foreword by Bill McKibben, the book underscores the ever-growing importance of Leopold's ideas in an increasingly human-dominated landscape. Drawing on unpublished archives, Warren traces Leopold's quest to define and preserve land health. Leopold's journey took him from Iowa to Yale to the Southwest to Wisconsin, with fascinating stops along the way to probe the causes of early land settlement failures, contribute to the emerging science of ecology, and craft a new vision for land use. Leopold's life was dedicated to one fundamental dilemma: how can people live prosperously on the land and keep it healthy, too? For anyone compelled by this question, the Tenth Anniversary Edition of Aldo Leopold's Odyssey offers insight and inspiration.

Summary: The emergence of the hominids, more than five million years ago, marked the start of the human odyssey through space and time. This book deals with the last stage of this fascinating journey: the exploration of cyberspace and cybertime. Through the rapid global implementation of information and communication technologies, a new realm for human experience and imagination has been disclosed. Reversely, these postgeographical and posthistorical technologies have started to colonize our bodies and minds. Taking Homer’s Odyssey and Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey as his starting point, the author investigates the ‘informatization of the worldview’, focusing on its implications for our culture–arts, religion, and science–and, ultimately, our form of life. Moving across a wide range of disciplines, varying from philosophical anthropology and palaeontology to information theory, and from astrophysics to literary, film and new media studies, the author discusses our ‘cyberspace odyssey’ from a reflective position beyond euphoria and nostalgia. His analysis is as profound as nuanced and deals with issues that will be high on the agenda for many decades to come. In 2003 a Dutch Edition of Cyberspace Odyssey received the Socrates Prize for the best philosophy book published in Dutch.

Summary: To save the world and our future, Sigma Force must embark on a dangerous odyssey into an ancient past whose horrors are all too present in this page-turning thriller from #1 New York Times bestselling author James Rollins that combines cutting-edge science, historical mystery, mythology, and pulse-pounding action. For eons, the city of Troy—whose legendary fall was detailed in Homer’s Iliad—was believed to be myth, until archaeologists in the nineteenth century uncovered its ancient walls buried beneath the sands. If Troy was real, how much of Homer’s twin tales of gods and monsters, curses and miracles—The Iliad and The Odyssey—could also be true and awaiting discovery? In the frozen tundra of Greenland, a group of modern-day researchers stumble on a shocking find: a medieval ship buried a half-mile below the ice. The ship’s hold contains a collection of even older artifacts—tools of war—dating back to the Bronze Age. Inside the captain’s cabin is a magnificent treasure that is as priceless as it is miraculous: a clockwork gold map imbedded with an intricate silver astrolabe. The mechanism was crafted by a group of Muslim inventors—the Banū Mūsā brothers—considered by many to be the Da Vincis of the Arab world—brilliant scientists who inspired Leonardo’s own work. Once activated, the moving map traces the path of Odysseus’s famous ship as it sailed away from Troy. But the route detours as the map opens to reveal a fiery river leading to a hidden realm underneath the Mediterranean Sea. It is the subterranean world of Tartarus, the Greek name for Hell. In mythology, Tartarus was where the wicked were punished and the monstrous Titans of old, imprisoned. When word of Tartarus spreads—and of the cache of miraculous weapons said to be hidden there—tensions explode in this volatile region where Turks battle Kurds, terrorists wage war, and civilians suffer untold horrors. The phantasmagoric horrors found in Homer’s tales are all too real—and could be unleashed upon the world. Whoever possesses them can use their awesome power to control the future of humanity. Now, Sigma Force must go where humans fear to tread. To prevent a tyrant from igniting a global war, they must cross the very gates of Hell.

Summary: Starting off from noneuclidean geometries, apart from the method of Einstein's equations, this book derives and describes the phenomena of gravitation and diffraction. A historical account is presented, exposing the missing link in Einstein's construction of the theory of general relativity: the uniformly rotating disc, together with his failure to realize, that the Beltrami metric of hyperbolic geometry with constant curvature describes exactly the uniform acceleration observed. This book also explores these questions: How does time bend?Why should gravity propagate at the speed of light? How does the expansion function of the universe relate to the absolute constant of the noneuclidean geometries?Why was the Sagnac effect ignored?Can Maxwell's equations accommodate mass?Is there an inertia due solely to polarization?Can objects expand in elliptic geometry like they contract in hyperbolic geometry?Contents:IntroductionWhich Geometry?A Brief History of Light, Electromagnetism and GravityElectromagnetic RadiationThe Origins of MassThermodynamics of RelativityGeneral Relativity in a Non-Euclidean Geometrical SettingRelativity of Hyperbolic SpaceNonequivalence of Gravitation and AccelerationAberration and Radiation Pressure in the Klein and Poincaré ModelsThe Inertia of Polarization Readership: Students and professionals in physics. Keywords:Relativity;Hyperbolic Geometry;Distortion Caused by Motion;Doppler and Stellar Aberration;Geodesics;Fermat's Principle;Gravitational Diffraction PhenomenaKey Features:“There are few books available on this subject that approach the material in a manner similar to the author. There are two books by Abraham A Unger — Analytic Hyperbolic Geometry and Einstein's Special Theory of Relativity (World Scientific) and Hyperbolic Triangle Centers: The Special Relativistic Approach (Springer, Fundamental Theories of Physics, 166, July 2010). The book that is currently available uses a new concept (gyrovectors) that is not part of the standard approach to hyperbolic geometry or special relativity.” It remains mathematically abstract, and does not go to the same physical depth in trying to uncover the noneuclidean geometric properties of physical phenomena

Summary: "Ce que la présence de cette femme a apaisé en moi, ce n est pas la soif charnelle d'un voyageur, c'est ma détresse originelle. Je suis né étranger, j'ai vécu étranger et je mourrai plus étranger encore. Je suis trop orgueilleux pour parler d'hostilité d'humiliations, de rancoeur, de souffrances, mais je sais reconnaître les regards et les gestes. Il y a des bras de femmes qui sont des lieux d'exil, et d'autres qui sont la terre natale." Parti sur les routes en 1665, le narrateur de cette histoire, Baldassare Embriaco, Génois d'Orient et négociant en curiosités, est à la poursuite d'un livre qui est censé apporter le Salut à un monde désemparé. Sans doute est-il aussi à la recherche de ce qui pourrait encore donner un sens à sa propre existence. Au cours de son périple, en Méditerranée et au-delà, Baldassare traverse des pays en perdition, des villes en feu, des communautés en attente. Il rencontre la peur, la tromperie et la désillusion ; mais également l'amour, à l'heure où il ne l'attendait plus. Amin Maalouf a déjà publié six romans : Léon l'Africain, Samarcande, Les Jardins de lumière, Le Premier Siècle après Béatrice, Le Rocher de Tanios (Prix Goncourt 1993) et Les Echelles du Levant.

Summary: Explore two lives—and a relationship—that profoundly shaped American Zen. Ruth Fuller Sasaki and Sokei-an Shigetsu Sasaki: two pioneers of Zen in the West. Ruth was an American with a privileged life, even during the height of the Great Depression, before she went to Japan and met D. T. Suzuki. Sokei-an was one of the first Zen priests to come to America; he brought the gift of the Dharma to the United States but in 1942 was put in an internment camp. One made his way to the West and the other would find her way to the East, but together they created the First Zen Institute of America and helped birth a new generation of Zen practitioners: among them, Alan Watts, Gary Snyder, and Burton Watson. They were married less than a year before Sokei-an died, but Ruth would go on to helm trailblazing translations in his honor and to become the first foreigner to be the priest of a Rinzai Zen temple in Japan. With lyrical prose, authors Steven Schwartz and Janica Anderson bring Ruth and Sokei-an to life. Two dozen intimate photographs photos show us two people who aren’t mere historical figures, but flesh and blood people, walking their paths.

Summary: A household icon of the environmental movement, Aldo Leopold (1887-1948) may be the most quoted conservationist in history. A Sand County Almanac has sold millions of copies and Leopold's writings are venerated for their perceptions about land and how people might live in concert with the whole community of life. But who is the man behind the words? How did he arrive at his profound and poetic insights, inspiring generations of environmentalists? Building on past scholarship and a fresh study of Leopold's unpublished archival materials, Julianne Lutz Newton retraces the intellectual journey generated by such passion and intelligence. Aldo Leopold's Odyssey illuminates his lifelong quest for answers to a fundamental issue: how can people live prosperously on the land and keep it healthy, too? Leopold's journey took him from Iowa to Yale to the Southwest to Wisconsin, with fascinating stops along the way to probe the causes of early land settlement failures, contribute to the emerging science of ecology, and craft a new vision for land use. More than a biography, this articulate volume is a guide to one man's intellectual growth, and an inspirational resource for anyone pondering the relationships between people and the land.
