Het leven bestaat uit keuzes. Door één pad te kiezen, sluit je het andere af. Maar wat als dat nu eens niet zo is? Wat als je in een andere werkelijkheid dat andere pad volgt. Wat als je spijt krijgt van je keuzen? 'Ben je gelukkig met je leven?' Dat zijn de laatste woorden die Jason Desson hoort vóórdat de gemaskerde ontvoerder hem bewusteloos slaat. En voordat hij wakker wordt en merkt dat hij vastgeketend is aan een ziekenhuisbed, omgeven door mensen die hij niet kent, die gekleed zijn in beschermende pakken en een man die Jason nog nooit heeft gezien naar hem glimlacht en zegt: 'Welkom terug, vriend.' IN de wereld waarin Jason Wakker is geworden is niets zoals hij gewend is. Zijn vrouw is niet zijn vrouw. Zijn zoon is nooit geboren. Jason zelf is geen doorneeprofessor in natuurkunde. Is déze wereld of de wereld waar hij vandaan komt een droom? En zelfs als de wereld die hij zich herinnert echt is, hoe kan hij die dan ooit weer terugvinden? De antwoorden liggen in een reis die wonderlijker en afschuwelijker is dan alles wat hij zich ooit had kunnen voorstellen. Een reis die hem dwingt naar de donkerste krochten van zijn ziel te kijken, terwijl hij het moet opnemen tegen een angstaanjagende, nagenoeg onverslaanbare vijand.

Matter and Form

Title : Matter and Form
Author : Ann Ward
Publisher: Rowman & Littlefield
Total pages: 241 pages
ISBN: 9780739135686

Matter and Form explores the relationship between natural science and political philosophy from the classical to contemporary eras, taking an interdisciplinary approach to the philosophic understanding of the structure and process of the natural world and its impact on the history of political philosophy. It illuminates the importance of philosophic reflection on material nature to moral and political theorizing, mediating between the sciences and humanities and making a contribution to ending the isolation between them.

Aquinas on Matter and Form and the Elements

Title : Aquinas on Matter and Form and the Elements
Author : Joseph Bobik
Publisher: University of Notre Dame Pess
Total pages: 352 pages
ISBN: 0268076332

Joseph Bobik offers a translation of Aquinas’s De Principiis Naturae (circa 1252) and De Mixtione Elementorum (1273) accompanied by a continuous commentary, followed by two essays: “Elements in the Composition of Physical Substances” and “The Elements in Aquinas and the Elements Today.” The Principles of Nature introduces the reader to the basic Aristotelian principles such as matter and form, the four causes so fundamental to Aquinas’s philosophy. On Mixture of the Elements examines the question of how the four elements (earth, air, fire, and water) remain within the physical things composed from them.

The Matter and Form of Maimonides' Guide

ISBN: 0674075943

Maimonides’ Guide of the Perplexed is generally read as an attempt either to harmonize reason and revelation or to show that they are irreconcilable. Moving beyond these familiar debates, Josef Stern argues that the perplexity addressed in this famously enigmatic work is the tension between human matter and form: the body and intellect.

Space, Time, Matter, and Form

Title : Space, Time, Matter, and Form
Author : David Bostock
Publisher: OUP Oxford
Total pages: 204 pages
ISBN: 9780191536847

Space, Time, Matter, and Form collects ten of David Bostock's essays on themes from Aristotle's Physics, four of them published here for the first time. The first five papers look at issues raised in the first two books of the Physics, centred on notions of matter and form, and the idea of substance as what persists through change. They also range over other of Aristotle's scientific works, such as his biology and psychology and the account of change in his De Generatione et Corruptione. The volume's remaining essays examine themes in later books of the Physics, including infinity, place, time, and continuity. Bostock argues that Aristotle's views on these topics are of real interest in their own right, independent of his notions of substance, form, and matter; they also raise some pressing problems of interpretation, which these essays seek to resolve.

Excerpt from Matter and Form in Aristotle: A Rejoinder When 'neufnark says I deny that there are contradictions in the Aristotelian system, he is throwing dust in the reader's eyes. What I denied is the Neumarkian distinction between the Physical writings and the Metaphysical, and the reason I deny it is because no such distinction exists, since the only evidences to the contrary adduced by Neumark are based on misapprehensions, mistrans lations and blunders. The Metaxii just discussed is a case in point, and is fundamental, for it is by reason of this concept that Neumark is led to distinguish between in the Physics-and {521; in the Metaphysics, between special steresis and general steresis, etc. Etc.

Forces, Growth and Form in Soft Condensed Matter: At the Interface between Physics and Biology

This volume comprises the proceedings of a NATO Advanced Study Institute held at Geilo, Norway, 24 March - 3 April 2003, the seventeenth ASI in a series held every two years since 1971. The objective of this ASI was to identify and discuss areas where synergism between modern physics, soft condensed matter and biology might be most fruitful. The main pedagogical approach was to have lecturers focussing on basic understanding of important aspects of the relative role of the various interaction- electrostatic, hydrophobic, steric, conformational, van der Waals etc. Soft condensed matter and the connection between physics and biology have been the themes of several earlier Geilo Schools. A return to these subjects thus allowed a fresh look and a possibility for defining new directions for research. Examples of soft materials, which were discussed at this ASI, included colloidal dispersions, gels, biopolymers and charged polymer solutions, polyelectrolytes, protein/membrane complexes, nucleic acids and their complexes. Indeed, most forms of condensed matter are soft and these substances are composed of aggregates and macromolecules, with interactions that are too weak and complex to form crystals spontaneously. A characteristic feature is that small external forces, slight perturbations in temperature, pressure or concentration, can all be enough to induce significant structural changes. Thermal fluctuations are almost by definition strong in soft materials and entropy is a predominant determinant of structure, so that disorder, slow dynamics and plastic deformation are the rule. Hence the phrase ‘soft condensed matter’ has been coined.

News That Matters

ISBN: 9780226388601

Almost twenty-five years ago, Shanto Iyengar and Donald R. Kinder first documented a series of sophisticated and innovative experiments that unobtrusively altered the order and emphasis of news stories in selected television broadcasts. Their resulting book News That Matters, now hailed as a classic by scholars of political science and public opinion alike, is here updated for the twenty-first century, with a new preface and epilogue by the authors. Backed by careful analysis of public opinion surveys, the authors show how, despite changing American politics, those issues that receive extended coverage in the national news become more important to viewers, while those that are ignored lose credibility. Moreover, those issues that are prominent in the news stream continue to loom more heavily as criteria for evaluating the president and for choosing between political candidates. “News That Matters does matter, because it demonstrates conclusively that television newscasts powerfully affect opinion. . . . All that follows, whether it supports, modifies, or challenges their conclusions, will have to begin here.”—The Public Interest

Journalism Matters

"Peter Cox pioneered principled advocacy journalism in Maine. As co-founder, publisher, and editor of Maine Times, he made that alternative weekly newspaper a must read for concerned citizens and policymakers during the 1960s, 1970s, and 1980s as a new Maine was emerging. Under his editorial guidance, Maine Times became a strong voice for environmental protection, sustainable development, economic justice, sensible energy policy, progressive politics, and cultural enterprise well before these issues were on the radar screens of mainstream publications. No Maine journalist, past or present, has been more invested in the future and fate of Maine than Peter Cox." -Edgar Allen Beem For many of us, Maine Times during its prime decades was the publication that connected us to the issues and the arts in our state, whether we lived at the end of a rural back road or in a city center. When it began in October 1968 Maine Times was one of the few alternative newspapers in the country and it quickly garnered media praise and national awards. We get an inside look at the newspaper, its personalities, its challenges, and the issues it tackled. This story is a fascinating one, but it goes well beyond the nuts and bolts of trying to make a success out of a ground-breaking newspaper, managing a talented and eclectic staff on a shoestring, and setting standards for the kind of investigative journalism and reporting that is still talked about today. Its also a very personal story, and in these pages we learn what shaped Peter Cox, the values he developed, and where it has led him. His childhood was one of middle-class privilege, his father was a prominent Washington, D.C., attorney, and Cox enjoyed an excellent education at Exeter and then Yale. But there was more at play than tennis. The fact that his father was Jewish was never acknowledged, and although the family had many prominent friends, those years were shadowed by the effects of segregation and the McCarthy hearings. Os car Cox taught his sons that who you are is not social or ethnic, but rather what you accomplish and how you conduct your life. And he encouraged learning by talking over current issues at the dinner table and challenging his sons with puzzles and education-as-games. We see how Peter Cox developed a restless intellectual curiosity, and just where this led him as we track his career and interests. Peter Cox was sixty-seven when he finished writing this book, facing the end of his life as he battles incurable cancer. But this is a book about a vibrant life, lived well with zest and enjoyment. And just as Cox learned about journalism from people who were willing to share their knowledge and skills with him, he was an encouraging mentor to others, sharing his enthusiasm, setting high standards, and influencing and helping young people. He thought a newspaper should challenge a community to look at itself and improve peoples lives, and he used that same thinking in his public policy work, starting a mentors program at the University of Maine, serving on the boards of Eco/Eco, the Maine Civil Liberties Union, and the Portland Art Museum, and more recently working to turn Wolfes Neck Farm into a successful natural beef operation. This is more than a Maine story. Its a book with broad scope, from the details of Peter Coxs search to learn more about his fatherwho was instrumental in writing the Lend-Lease Act of World War II, helped persuade Roosevelt to establish a War Refugee Board, and was involved with a war tribunal trial with present-day implicationsto years of rapid change, in our country, in our state, and in the field of journalism. Cox is used to asking questions, exploring the answers, and asking more questions, so we get a story that is rich in context and remarkably candid. As Sue Scheible points out in her introduction to the book, Peter Cox has received many awards during his life, but this memoir may be his finest and most lasting tribute. Peter Cox led Maine Times from 1968 until 1986, with a brief return in the 1990s. Since his retirement he devoted his attention and energy to work with nonprofits, gardening, and his family and friends. He lived in Georgetown, Maine, with his wife Eunice.
