The first chapter presents the geometry and topology of surfaces. Among other topics, the authors discuss the Poincare-Hopf theorem on critical points of vector fields on surfaces and the Gauss-Bonnet theorem on the relation between curvature and topology (the Euler characteristic). The second chapter addresses various aspects of the concept of dimension, including the Peano curve and the Poincare approach. Also addressed is the structure of three-dimensional manifolds. In particular, it is proved that the three-dimensional sphere is the union of two doughnuts.

Im 17. Jahrhundert war es höchste Zeit, dass ein Genie auftauchte und Schneisen ins Dickicht des Unwissens schlug. Isaac Newton war dieses Genie. Und ein Arschloch. Science Buster Florian Freistetter zeigt, wie intrigant und hinterhältig Newton wirklich war und dass sein Hass auf Robert Hooke und Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz keine Grenzen kannte. Gleichzeitig beweist er, dass Newton die Physik niemals revolutioniert hätte, wenn er nicht solch ein Kotzbrocken gewesen wäre. Wenn Genialität auf Streitsucht trifft – und dabei ein kosmisches Arschloch herauskommt, davon erzählt Freistetters Buch mit schonungslosem Humor.

Gairdner refutes the popular belief in cultural relativism by showing that there are hundreds of well-established cross-cultural "human universals." He then discusses the many universals found in physics - as well as Einstein's personal regret at how his work was misinterpreted by the public's eagerness to promote relativism. Gairdner also gives a lively account of the many universals of human biology, including the controversial topic of universal gender differences or "brain sex." He then looks at universal concepts of both natural and international law, and ends by discussing language theory. He shows how philosophers from Nietzsche to Derrida have misused linguistic concepts to justify their relativism, even though a sustained and successful effort by serious scientists and philosophers of language has revealed myriad universals of human language, ranging from language acquisition, to word-order, to "Universal Grammar."

Is the geometry of the New Jerusalem, the Holy of Holies, and the Tefillin - a paradigm for the geometry of the universe? Is our universe a cube within a larger cube? Will the expansion of the observable universe come to a dramatic end in our lifetime - as depicted in illustrations 8-10 of this book? Was this event foretold in the Book of Revelation? Will the timing of this event coincide with the Maya prophecy of 2012, or Isaac Newton's prediction for the return of Christ in 2060?

Essays On The Context Nature And Influence Of Isaac Newton S Theology

This collection of essays is the fruit of about fifteen years of discussion and research by James Force and me. As I look back on it, our interest and concern with Newton's theological ideas began in 1975 at Washington University in St. Louis. James Force was a graduate student in philosophy and I was a professor there. For a few years before, I had been doing research and writing on Millenarianism and Messianism in the 17th and 18th centuries, touching occasionally on Newton. I had bought a copy of Newton's Observations upon the Prophecies of Daniel, and the Apocalypse of St. John for a few pounds and, occasionally, read in it. In the Spring of 1975 I was giving a graduate seminar on Millenarian and Messianic ideas in the development of modem philosophy. Force was in the seminar. One day he came very excitedly up to me and said he wanted to write his dissertation on William Whiston. At that point in history, the only thing that came to my mind about Whiston was that he had published a, or the, standard translation of Josephus (which I also happened to have in my library. ) Force told me about the amazing views he had found in Whiston's notes on Josephus and in some of the few writings he could find in St. Louis by, or about, Whiston, who was Newton's successor as Lucasian Professor of mathematics at Cambridge and who wrote inordinately on Millenarian theology.

Dick Popkin and James Force have attended a number of recent conferences where it was apparent that much new and important research was being done in the fields of interpreting Newton's and Spinoza's contributions as biblical scholars and of the relationship between their biblical scholarship and other aspects of their particular philosophies. This collection represents the best current research in this area. It stands alone as the only work to bring together the best current work on these topics. Its primary audience is specialised scholars of the thought of Newton and Spinoza as well as historians of the philosophical ideas of the late seventeenth and early eighteenth centuries.

In 1999, Detroit-area collector James F. Duffy Jr. gave the Detroit Institute of Arts a vast collection of works on paper by Gordon Newton. This gift included over five hundred drawings, forty sketchbooks and sketchpads, two paintings, twelve pieces of sculpture, and folder after folder of archival materials related to the works of art and the artist. These gifts were combined with other works by Gordon Newton that the museum already owned to form an exhibition of the artist's work that spanned over three decades. Many of the works are included in this text, which highlights the breadth of Gordon Newton's art and explores the variety of themes and mediums he has used.Gordon Newton: Selections from the James F. Duffy Jr. Gift provides a rare opportunity to study an artist's work over an extended period of time, from his earliest black-and-white abstract drawings to the heavily layered, richly colored figurative images made within the past decade. Biographical information on Newton, as well as essays that focus on the style of his work and the historical and cultural artistic events shaping the times, is combined with 150 illustrations to make this an important study not only of a major artist, but of the creative process in general.Gordon Newton's art of the last thirty years is complex, beautiful, unpredictable, and always provocative. The essays in this book provide an in-depth look at selected works from the James F. Duffy gift.
