Summary

Expert essays provide the first comprehensive analysis of the long-term health and environmental consequences of the Fukushima nuclear accident.   On the second anniversary of the Fukushima disaster, an international panel of leading medical and biological scientists, nuclear engineers, and policy experts were brought together at the prestigious New York Academy of Medicine by Helen Caldicott, the world’s leading spokesperson for the antinuclear movement. This was the first comprehensive attempt to address the health and environmental damage done by one of the worst nuclear accidents of our times.   A compilation of these important presentations, Crisis Without End represents an unprecedented look into the profound aftereffects of Fukushima. In accessible terms, leading experts from Japan, the United States, Russia, and other nations weigh in on the current state of knowledge of radiation-related health risks in Japan, impacts on the world’s oceans, the question of low-dosage radiation risks, crucial comparisons with Chernobyl, health and environmental impacts on the United States (including on food and newborns), and the unavoidable implications for the US nuclear energy industry.  Crisis Without End is both essential reading and a major corrective to the public record on Fukushima.

    Join National Humanities Medal recipient Rebecca Newberger Goldstein and a host of other brilliant minds as they seek to answer ten perennially mystifying questions of philosophy. What is truth? As humans, how can we know what is real? How can the philosophies of science, cosmology, and biology help us understand the mysteries of our existence? In this compelling audio series, Dr. Robert Lawrence Kuhn, creator and host of the hit PBS series Closer to Truth, probes the nature of truth and other heady philosophical questions in intimate conversations with 13 of the world’s greatest thinkers.Kuhn’s respondents include novelist and philosophy professor Rebecca Newberger Goldstein, recipient of the National Humanities Medal and author of Plato at the Googleplex: Why Philosophy Won't Go Away; John Cardinal O’Hara Professor of Philosophy at the University of Notre Dame Peter van Inwagen, celebrated for his many contributions to contemporary metaphysics; and professor of philosophy at Australian Catholic University and the University of Southern California John Hawthorne, author of the acclaimed collection Metaphysical Essays. Kuhn’s intellect and down-to-earth approach to understanding the complexity of the human condition make him an exceptionally gifted interviewer. As you gaze into the cosmos with Kuhn and his interlocutors, you’ll find your own philosophical curiosity awakened.This course is part of the Learn25 collection.

     Myocardial Torsion is a book different from others, simply because this book is unique, unusual, and I dare say with admiration, it is a curious book, partly magical, full of personality, for initiatory readers, revealing, provocative, challenging. The book has the infrequent peculiarity of being based, to a great extent, on original personal and multidisciplinary investigations, granting it an important extra value.
    The authors define their purpose since the firsts pages of the book: to provide solidity, validity and even more to Torrent Guasp's concepts. This is certainly a different book in its structure, content and elaboration. It is a text that the reader may admire or criticize, that may create skepticism or surprise at the new data it propose, but wich undoudtedly will leavenobody indifferent, and that is something few books can achieve.

    This work is a philosophical investigation into the argumentative conditions for intercultural dialogue in Latin America. Through a critical discussion of some key theories of argumentation and intercultural dialogue and a thoughtful analysis of the Latin-American context of diversity, this book develops an intercultural model of argumentation based on the criteria of Intercultural Reasonableness and Discursive Interpellation. These criteria, which have a contextual and dialogical character, aim to offer the appropriate normative ground for a polylogical argumentative dialogue, in which the parties can make use of their own types of language and rationality without presupposing a common standard for the rational evaluation of arguments.

    The Monad Manifesto

    As scientists probe deeper into the nature of reality, they are discovering that consciousness is at the root of everything. What we believed were the laws of physics and matter are really the archetypal laws of mind, and the condensation of consciousness that created our universe originated from a dimensionless point in the void known as the “Singularity” in physics and the “Monad” in math and philosophy. 
    In philosophy, the Monad is the single source of all things—the embedded matrix of both our present existence and all possible future incarnations. For theologians, it is the logos –the Word of God that created the world. In mathematics, the Monad is the root of all the numbers that describe Nature. In science, it is the Big Bang explosion of light and information from which our universe sprung forth. 
    By the late 20th century, an interdisciplinary science of Consciousness Studies emerged dedicated to solving the puzzle of consciousness and understanding the mysterious monadic origin of the universe. Most of the pieces to that puzzle are already in place, and we are just beginning to glimpse the overall picture. It’s not like anything we ever expected . . .
