The Creating Brain: The Neuroscience of Genius by Nancy C. Andreasen
English | 2005-11-30 | ISBN: 1932594078 | PDF | 197 pages | 1,1 MB

The Creating Brain: The Neuroscience of Genius
Michelangelo was raised in a rustic village by a family of modest means. Shakespeare's father was a middle-class businessman. Abraham Lincoln came from a family of itinerant farmers. Yet all these men broke free from their limited circumstances and achieved brilliant careers as creative artists and leaders. How such extraordinary creativity develops in the human brain is the subject of renowned psychiatrist Nancy Andreasen's The Creating Brain.
Andreasen explains here how the brain produces creative breakthroughs in art, literature, and science, revealing that creativity is not the same thing as intelligence. She scrutinizes the complex factors involved in the development of creativity, including the role of patrons and mentors, "non-standard" educations, and the possession of an "omnivorous" vision. A fascinating interview with acclaimed playwright Neil Simon sheds further light on the creative process.The relationship between genius and insanity also plays an important role in Andreasen's examination. Drawing on her studies of writers in the Iowa Writers' Workshop and other scientific evidence, Andreasen asserts that while creativity may sometimes be linked to mental disorders and may be partially due to familial/genetic factors, neither is inevitable nor needed for creativity to flourish.
Scientist's increasing understanding of the brain's plasticity suggests even more possibilities for nurturing the creative drive, and Andreasen looks ahead to exciting implications for child-rearing and education. The Creating Brain presents an inspiring vision for a future where everyone-not just artists or writers-can fulfill their creative capacity.

Significance of Yavneh & Other Essays in Jewish Hellenism

FREEDownload : Significance of Yavneh & Other Essays in Jewish Hellenism

Shaye J. D. Cohen, "Significance of Yavneh & Other Essays in Jewish Hellenism"
English | ISBN: 3161503759 | 2010 | 629 pages | PDF | 4 MB

Significance of Yavneh & Other Essays in Jewish Hellenism
This volume collects thirty essays by Shaye J.D. Cohen. First published between 1980 and 2006, these essays deal with a wide variety of themes and texts: Jewish Hellenism; Josephus; the Synagogue; Conversion to Judaism; Blood and Impurity; the boundary between Judaism and Christianity. What unites them is their philological orientation. Many of these essays are close studies of obscure passages in Jewish and Christian texts.
The essays are united too by their common assumption that the ancient world was a single cultural continuum; that ancient Judaism, in all its expressions and varieties, was a Hellenism; and that texts written in Hebrew share a world of discourse with those written in Greek. Many of these essays are well-known and have been much discussed in contemporary scholarship. Among these are: "The Significance of Yavneh" (the title essay), "Patriarchs and Scholarchs," "Masada: Literary Tradition, Archaeological Remains, and the Credibility of Josephus," "Epigraphical Rabbis," "The Conversion of Antoninus," "Menstruants and the Sacred in Judaism and Christianity," and "A Brief History of Jewish Circumcision Blood."

Make Talent Your Business: How Exceptional Managers Develop People While Getting Results

FREEDownload : Make Talent Your Business: How Exceptional Managers Develop People While Getting Results

Make Talent Your Business: How Exceptional Managers Develop People While Getting Results (BK Business) by Wendy Axelrod and Jeannie Coyle
English | ISBN: 1605099317 | 2011 | 210 pages | PDF | 1,2 MB

Make Talent Your Business: How Exceptional Managers Develop People While Getting Results
Despite considerable investment in resources and tools, many managers and their companies struggle to get the level of talent they truly require. Make Talent Your Business gets to the heart of the matter: Managers themselves are in the best position to help people learn from experience (the uncontested major source of development). The books shows managers how to do this by using the five practices that work for leaders who are exceptional at building talent.

Based upon research with exceptional leaders from companies such as Corning, Intel, Merck, Kraft, Siemens, Marriott, Microsoft, Wells Fargo and Xerox this approach goes well beyond the usual managerial coaching and performance management. This breakthrough approach of five practices helps managers develop significant capabilities in their employees well beyond the scope of their current roles. It integrates development into day-to-day work, rather than making it a separate event. Managers who develop people this way get better results, retain talent, enhance their own reputations and certainly do not want to return to their former ways of managing.

Alternatives to Animal Testing: New Ways in the Biomedical Sciences, Trends & Progress by Christoph A. Reinhardt
English | Mar 18, 1994 | ISBN: 3527300430 | 182 Pages | PDF | 14 MB
Opinion leaders in science and politics examine findings and legislation in alternatives to animal testing!

Alternatives to Animal Testing: New Ways in the Biomedical Sciences, Trends & Progress
Refine, reduce, replace – These are the three demands that scientists have placed upon themselves in their search for alternatives to animal testing. Indeed much interdisciplinary research is being carried on today, and new fields have emerged, such as in-vitro toxicology.

The three R's call for new scientific insights. Moreover, validation and acceptance strategies have to be adapted, a process of much ongoing interest and vital concern to the pharmaceutical and cosmetic industries.

Researchers need to know exactly what has been achieved and accepted in alternatives to animal testing in science and politics. In this book they have the opportunity to benefit from the knowledge and expertise of leading researchers and influential representatives of national and international regulatory authorities.

A Perfect Moral Storm: The Ethical Tragedy of Climate Change

FREEDownload : A Perfect Moral Storm: The Ethical Tragedy of Climate Change

A Perfect Moral Storm: The Ethical Tragedy of Climate Change by Stephen M. Gardiner
English | 2011 | ISBN: 0195379446 | 512 pages | EPUB | 2,4 MB

A Perfect Moral Storm: The Ethical Tragedy of Climate Change
Climate change is arguably the great problem confronting humanity, but we have done little to head off this looming catastrophe. In The Perfect Moral Storm, philosopher Stephen Gardiner illuminates our dangerous inaction by placing the environmental crisis in an entirely new light, considering it as an ethical failure. Gardiner clarifies the moral situation, identifying the temptations (or "storms") that make us vulnerable to a certain kind of corruption. First, the world's most affluent nations are tempted to pass on the cost of climate change to the poorer and weaker citizens of the world. Second, the present generation is tempted to pass the problem on to future generations. Third, our poor grasp of science, international justice, and the human relationship to nature helps to facilitate inaction. As a result, we are engaging in willful self-deception when the lives of future generations, the world's poor, and even the basic fabric of life on the planet is at stake. We should wake up to this profound ethical failure, Gardiner concludes, and demand more of our institutions, our leaders and ourselves.

"This is a radical book, both in the sense that it faces extremes and in the sense that it goes to the roots." –Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews

"The book's strength lies in Gardiner's success at understanding and clarifying the types of moral issues that climate change raises, which is an important first step toward solutions." –Science Magazine

"Gardiner has expertly explored some very instinctual and vitally important considerations which cannot realistically be ignored. –Required reading." –Green Prophet

"Gardiner makes a strong case for highlighting and insisting on the ethical dimensions of the climate problem, and his warnings about buck-passing and the dangerous appeal of moral corruptions hit home." –Times Higher Education
