"Explanation and Understanding, perhaps von Wright's best-known book, showed the influence of Wittgenstein, but marked a clean break with the positivism of his youth. He suggested that human action could not be explained causally by scientific or 'natural' laws, but had to be understood 'intentionally'—a concept connected with wants and beliefs developed in a social and cultural context."—Daily Telegraph"This is a very good book packed with much original material; it also contains illuminating reinterpretations of some familiar theories and arguments. The range of topics treated includes causation, action, verification of gnomic statements, practical inference and its use in the explanation of action, and the structure of explanation in history."—Philosophical Review

This volume constitutes a first step towards an ever-deferred interdisciplinary dialogue on cultural traits. It offers a way to enter a representative sample of the intellectual diversity that surrounds this topic, and a means to stimulate innovative avenues of research. It stimulates critical thinking and awareness in the disciplines that need to conceptualize and study culture, cultural traits, and cultural diversity. Culture is often defined and studied with an emphasis on cultural features. For UNESCO, “culture should be regarded as the set of distinctive spiritual, material, intellectual and emotional features of society or a social group”. But the very possibility of assuming the existence of cultural traits is not granted, and any serious evaluation of the notion of “cultural trait” requires the interrogation of several disciplines from cultural anthropology to linguistics, from psychology to sociology to musicology, and all areas of knowledge on culture. This book presents a strong multidisciplinary perspective that can help clarify the problems about cultural traits.

Finally, you can learn computation theory and programming language design in an engaging, practical way. Understanding Computation explains theoretical computer science in a context you’ll recognize, helping you appreciate why these ideas matter and how they can inform your day-to-day programming. Rather than use mathematical notation or an unfamiliar academic programming language like Haskell or Lisp, this book uses Ruby in a reductionist manner to present formal semantics, automata theory, and functional programming with the lambda calculus. It’s ideal for programmers versed in modern languages, with little or no formal training in computer science. Understand fundamental computing concepts, such as Turing completeness in languages Discover how programs use dynamic semantics to communicate ideas to machines Explore what a computer can do when reduced to its bare essentials Learn how universal Turing machines led to today’s general-purpose computers Perform complex calculations, using simple languages and cellular automata Determine which programming language features are essential for computation Examine how halting and self-referencing make some computing problems unsolvable Analyze programs by using abstract interpretation and type systems

Across the globe, professional cash, treasury, and portfolio managers, as well as government regulators, are scrutinizing Swaps - innovative, easily customized synthetic investment vehicles that permit savvy users to fine-tune interest rate and currency exposure, manage debt, hedge against geopolitical uncertainty, and dramatically enhance investment portfolio returns. Understanding Interest Rate Swaps presents a clear and compelling picture of the growing $3 trillion Swap market. This hands-on guide keeps readers immediately current with the latest, successful strategies and techniques used by today's top Swap traders and corporate users. And it takes market watchers on a behind-the-scenes tour of the global Swap bazaar, shedding critical light on questions regulators and industry insiders are currently raising about the security and future of the Swap markets. This striking new guide first explains what Swaps are, introducing key concepts and crucial market terminology. It next traces the development of today's red-hot Swaps, disclosing how they originated and grew, and sharing inside information about why financial institutions set up Swap desks and how they currently capitalize on these profitable instruments. Using diagramming techniques, the guide then walks you through a series of realistic Swap examples, building from simple "plain vanilla" transactions - the market's essential building blocks - to nearly two dozen other derivative interest rate products, including Swaptions, Caps, spreadlocks, floors, and collars. You'll find detailed guidelines for using foreign exchange and commodity Swaps, and discover emerging opportunities in the surging equity derivatives market. Formaximum advantage, Understanding Interest Rate Swaps delivers the systematic, empirical guidance you need to master all the methodologies and calculations used in the international Swap market. You'll learn how rates are set, how to evaluate competing quotes from traders, and how to best negotiate and execute a profitable Swap trade. When it comes to unwinding a Swap position, the guide shows how to maximize profits by marking a Swap to market, and exploiting sophisticated price refining techniques on your PC or financial calculator. Understanding Interest Rate Swaps also tackles head-on the most serious issues confronting today's Swap market - the credit crunch, declining margins, the threat of regulation, overcapacity, and the recent scandals involving some of Wall Street's premier investment houses. Special attention is given to properly documenting all phases of Swap transactions and setting up a reliable risk management program. Amidst the continuous profit taking and storm of controversy, the interest rate Swap market may become unglued. If you're serious about getting up on the learning curve to handle powerful new financing techniques in your day-to-day responsibilities, here's the day-to-day guide you need to proceed safely and profitably.

Providing a much-needed bridge between elementary statistics courses and advanced research methods courses, Understanding Advanced Statistical Methods helps students grasp the fundamental assumptions and machinery behind sophisticated statistical topics, such as logistic regression, maximum likelihood, bootstrapping, nonparametrics, and Bayesian methods. The book teaches students how to properly model, think critically, and design their own studies to avoid common errors. It leads them to think differently not only about math and statistics but also about general research and the scientific method. With a focus on statistical models as producers of data, the book enables students to more easily understand the machinery of advanced statistics. It also downplays the "population" interpretation of statistical models and presents Bayesian methods before frequentist ones. Requiring no prior calculus experience, the text employs a "just-in-time" approach that introduces mathematical topics, including calculus, where needed. Formulas throughout the text are used to explain why calculus and probability are essential in statistical modeling. The authors also intuitively explain the theory and logic behind real data analysis, incorporating a range of application examples from the social, economic, biological, medical, physical, and engineering sciences. Enabling your students to answer the why behind statistical methods, this text teaches them how to successfully draw conclusions when the premises are flawed. It empowers them to use advanced statistical methods with confidence and develop their own statistical recipes. Ancillary materials are available on the book’s website.
