L atome le singe et le cannibale
D'où venons-nous? Que sommes-nous? Où allons-nous? Plus la science avance, plus s'avivent les questions et d'abord celle du Mal et de sa présence scandaleuse. Par-delà les récents et impressionnants succès de l'astrophysique, de la théorie de l'évolution et de l'anthropologie fondamentale, l'explication de l'univers, de l'homme, de la société, réduite aux seules lois mécaniques s'avère déficiente. Retraçant les grandes découvertes des sciences, Jean-Michel Maldamé en interroge les concepts, qu'il dépasse en faisant appel à la notion de Création, à la métaphysique et à la philosophie. Il développe ainsi une cosmologie totale, fondée sur la seule question décisive : quel est le sens de la vie et de la liberté ? À la croisée de la science et de la théologie, voici la saga magnifique et lumineuse du monde, de l'homme, de l'histoire où nous serons toujours plus complexes qu'un atome, plus évolués qu'un singe, et aurons toujours le choix entre être ou ne pas être des cannibales.

A New Theory of the Earth
This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1737 edition. Excerpt: ... vens, or the fame six'd Stars; and its continual Parallelism to itself; all the apparent Revolution of the Sun must depend on the annual Motion; and A Day and a Tear be all one. This is evident, because, as a Tear is truly that Space in which the Sun seemingly, and the Earth really performs a single Revolution round the Ediptick; so a Day is truly that Space in which the Sun passes, or appears to pass from any certain Semi-Meridian to the fame again once: which Spaces of Time are here the very fame, and so the Apellations themselves Tear and Day, may indifferently and promiscuously be apply'd thereto. (2.) The Course of the Sun and Planets, (for the fix'd Stars were then Fix'd indeed; having neither a real nor seeming Motion) must be contrary to what it has appear'd since: their Rising being then in the Weft, and their Setting in the East; which, from the way of their present diurnal Rotation, has since, as all know, been quite different. (3.) There must be a perpetual Equinox, or Equality of Day and Night, through the whole Planet; by reason of the Sun's describing each Revolution a great Circle about the same, on which alone such an Equality depends. (4.) The Ecliptick must supply the Place of an Equator also; and the torrid, temperate, and frigid Zones be almost alike dispos'd with regard to that Circle, as with us they are with regard to the real Equator. (5.) To such as liv'd under or near the said Ecliptick, the Poles of the World or Ecliptick, the only ones then in Being, would be at or near the Horizon; and so not considerably elevated or depress'd to the Inhabitants there. But upon the commencing of a quicker diurnal Rotation, the same way with the annual, the Case would be in all these Particulars quite different. For, (i.) By...
Home with God
Nothing has frightened or fascinated us more than the experience that we call 'death'. Now, in what very well could be the most profound of all his CONVERSATIONS WITH GOD books, bestselling Mobius author Neale Donald Walsch asks the questions that we have all wanted to ask, and receives answers we have all been waiting for, in this deeply moving and highly personal dialogue with Deity. HOME WITH GOD is the definitive spiritual work on death and dying, offering new insights, deep wisdom and peace of mind, for the terminally ill, family members of the dying, hospital and medical professionals, members of the clergy, and everyone encountering death. HOME WITH GOD logically completes Neale Donald Walsch's dialogue with God, exploring the process by which we end our lives here on earth and begin our so-called After Life experience. A book of comfort, hope and surprising revelation, HOME WITH GOD is an astonishing, deeply healing, and reassuring spiritual classic.
The Post Truth Era
"Dishonesty inspires more euphemisms than copulation or defecation. This helps desensitize us to its implications. In the post-truth era we don't just have truth and lies but a third category of ambiguous statements that are not exactly the truth but fall just short of a lie. Enhanced truth it might be called. Neo-truth. Soft truth. Faux truth. Truth lite." Deception has become the modern way of life. Where once the boundary line between truth and lies was clear and distinct, it is no longer so. In the post-truth era, deceiving others has become a challenge, a game, a habit. High-profile dissemblers compete for news coverage, from journalists like Jayson Blair and professors like Joseph Ellis to politicians (of all stripes), executives, and "creative" accountants. Research suggests that the average American tells multiple lies on a daily basis, often for no good reason. Not a finger-wagging scolding, The Post-Truth Era is a combination of Ralph Keyes's investigative journalism and solid science. The result is a spirited exploration of why we lie about practically everything and the consequences such casual dishonesty has on society. American society has become permeated from top to bottom by deception. Its consequences for the nature of public discourse, media, business, literature, academia, and politics are profound. With dry humor, passionate fervor, and deep understanding, Ralph Keyes takes us on a tour of a world where truth and honesty are no longer absolutes but mutable, fluid concepts.
On Deep History and the Brain
"This is surely a new paradigm for the study of history that will be regarded as revolutionary but which is also well justified. To my knowledge, no other book integrates the study of human history with principles of biological and cultural evolution on such an ambitious scale."--David Sloan Wilson, author of Darwin's Cathedral: Evolution, Religion and the Nature of Society "This is one of the most exciting books I've read in years. It is so accessible, so groundbreaking, so stimulating, so important that I imagine the next generation of historians will be deeply influenced by what Smail has to say here. Simply dazzling."--Lynn Hunt, author of Inventing Human Rights
The New Art the New Life
When the Dutch painter Piet Mondrian (1872–1944) made his first ventures into the realm of nonrepresentational art, he could hardly have imagined the impact his vision would have on twentieth-century art, architecture, and design. Internationally recognized as the leading pioneer of abstract art, the founder of Neo-Plasticism, and the ideological father of the De Stijl movement, Mondrian embodied the spirit of modernism. His unmistakable grids and angular compositions expressed his desire for order and clarity amid the chaos of industrial civilization. This comprehensive collection of his essays, letters, notes, and interviews is arranged chronologically from Mondrian's earliest De Stijl essays up to an interview conducted shortly before his death. The texts are complemented with a chronology, an intimate memoir by his close friend Harry Holtzman, an essay on Mondrian's early writings by Martin S. James, a selective bibliography, and 254 reproductions of Mondrian's paintings, works, by his contemporaries, and photographs of the artist, his family, and friends. The New Art –The New Life is the definitive source for understanding the underlying principles of Mondrian's art and life. Revealed in these writings is the self-denial, discipline, and patience of a man who modified the way we perceive the world.
The Earth After Us
What would alien visitors in the far future, piecing together the history of earth, find of our brief reign? What clues will we leave? What fossils? Just as we have gained knowledge of the past, of ancient climates and the activities of creatures long dead, so too might they decode the rocks. The Earth After Us takes a novel approach to show how geologists unravel the information in the rocks. As the alien scientists start investigating the strata, what story will they tell of us? What kind of fossils will humans leave behind? What will happen to cities, cars, and plastic cups? How thick a layer will the 'human stratum' be? And will it be obvious which species dominated the planet?
Risk and Culture
Can we know the risks we face, now or in the future? No, we cannot; but yes, we must act as if we do. Some dangers are unknown; others are known, but not by us because no one person can know everything. Most people cannot be aware of most dangers at most times. Hence, no one can calculate precisely the total risk to be faced. How, then, do people decide which risks to take and which to ignore? On what basis are certain dangers guarded against and others relegated to secondary status? This book explores how we decide what risks to take and which to ignore, both as individuals and as a culture.
