Excerpt: "The crisis of civilization through which we are living is, though a tragic moment, a moment only in the history of the cosmos, an episode only in the history of men. History moves along in waves; we are caught in the roughest surf today, and hurled about by it. But in the midst of the ocean it will be calm tomorrow. In its depths it is calm today...". Irwin Edman was a professor of philosophy, as well as an author of poetry and some fiction. His works include "Philosopher’s Holiday","Richard Kane Looks at Life", "Four Ways of Philosophy","Philosopher's Quest", and "Arts and the Man - An Introduction to Aesthetics". #346

0394583485 / 9780394583488



8vo. 255 pgs. Fine condition hardcover, in Fine jacket. From the preface: "The art of building memory palaces has become a historical curiosity. What Ricci taught as a deliberate pneumonic device comes close to describing what the brain does automatically. As we move through the world, experience is transformed into memories. Neuron by neuron, we snap together mental structures..." In searching for the secrets of memory, the author focuses on the efforts of three people: Gary Lynch, investigating the constant formation of new memory circuits in the brain, Leon Cooper, a physicist who shared a Nobel Prize for his work in superconductivity, and Patricia Churchland, who is working to bridge biology and philosophy in pursuit of understanding the principles and processes of memory. Also included are extensive notes, bibliography and index. ISBN 0394583485. #2155.

Die Zukunft Des Menschen [L'Avenir de l'Homme, The Future of Man]
Walter-Verlag
Switzerland, 1966

Second Edition
Cloth Hardcover
Very Good




404 pgs. Very Good condition dark blue cloth hardcover, text is in German language. Very minor shelf wear, lightly foxed upper text block, internally clean and unmarked with tight binding. Father Pierre Teilhard de Chardin [1881-1955] was a Jesuit priest and paleontologist, hence both a theologian and a scientist. His writings reflect his philosophy, ranging from understanding humankind's place in the universe to the impact of scientific discoveries on traditional religious dogma, in particular the interdependent connection between the theory of evolution and the basic tenets of Christian faith. His manuscripts were banned from publication by his superiors during his lifetime, but were finally released to the world by a committee called the Frinds of Teilhard de Chardin. Originally published in 1959 in Paris as "L'Avenir de L'Homme", this is the German language edition [Lorenz Hafliger and Karl Schmitz-Moormann]. #2490.
