One Hundred Years of Chemical Warfare: Research, Deployment, Consequences

by Bretislav Friedrich

This book is open access under a CC BY-NC 2.5 license. On April 22, 1915, the German military released 150 tons of chlorine gas at Ypres, Belgium. Carried by a long-awaited wind, the chlorine cloud passed within a few minutes through the British and French trenches, leaving behind at least 1,000 dead and 4,000 injured. This chemical attack, which amounted to the first use of a weapon of mass destruction, marks a turning point in world history. The preparation as well as the execution of the gas attack was orchestrated by Fritz Haber, the director of the Kaiser Wilhelm Institute for Physical Chemistry and Electrochemistry in Berlin-Dahlem. During World War I, Haber transformed his research institute into a center for the development of chemical weapons (and of the means of protection agains...

Cognition based on Quantum Gravity: The Interface of Physics towards Philosophy

by Claus Birkholz

     Philosophy would not be worth a penny if it would be contradicting natural sciences, and the same holds true for the sciences if they would be in conflict with nature. The claim of natural sciences is it to map nature. For consistency, hence, the author, here, is outlining the last frontiers fundamental physics, actually, is disposing of.     This interface of physics towards philosophy is based on cognition gained by Quantum Gravity, the consistent unification of Einstein's General Relativity with Planck's quanta and Gell-Mann's quark model. The quantization of Einstein's curvilinear space-time is giving rise to a completely novel level of a "hidden" structure far below the level of quarks and leptons, which, in accordance with Bell's no-go-theorems, is leading to the stateme...

Rethinking Interdisciplinarity across the Social Sciences and Neurosciences

by F. Callard

This book offers a provocative account of interdisciplinary research across the neurosciences, social sciences and humanities. Setting itself against standard accounts of interdisciplinary 'integration,' and rooting itself in the authors' own experiences, the book establishes a radical agenda for collaboration across these disciplines. Rethinking Interdisciplinarity does not merely advocate interdisciplinary research, but attends to the hitherto tacit pragmatics, affects, power dynamics, and spatial logics in which that research is enfolded. Understanding the complex relationships between brains, minds, and environments requires a delicate, playful and genuinely experimental interdisciplinarity, and this book shows us how it can be done. This book is open access under a CC-BY license and f...

Bordieuan Field Theory as an Instrument for Military Operational Analysis (New Security Challenges)

by Håkan Gunneriusson

This book is open access under a CC BY 4.0 license.This book uses Pierre Bourdieu’s field theory as a lens through which to examine military operations. Novel in its approach, this innovative text provides a better, more nuanced understanding of the modern ‘battlespace’, particularly in instances of prolonged low-intensity conflict. Formed in two parts, this book primarily explores the scope of Bourdien theory before secondly providing a detailed case study of the Yugoslavian succession war of 1990-1992. Gunneriusson suggests that although theories do not necessarily provide answers, they do help us ask better questions. This volume suggests news lines of interdisciplinary investigation that will be of interest to members of armed forces, practitioners from NGOs, and policymakers....

A Philosophical Examination of Social Justice and Child Poverty

by G. Schweiger and G. Graf

This book is open access under a CCBY license.   Child poverty is one of the biggest challenges of today, harming millions of children. In this book, it is investigated from a philosophical social justice perspective, primarily in the context of modern welfare states. Based on both normative theory (particularly the capability approach) and empirical evidence, the authors identify the injustices of child poverty, showing how it negatively affects the well-being of children as well as their whole life course. But child poverty is not 'given by nature'. It is avoidable and there is certainly the moral duty to alleviate it. Therefore, Graf and Schweiger develop a normative theory of responsibilities, which clarifies the moral role of different agents in the poor child's environment – the f...

Infinity I

by Agni Yoga Society

Infinity I is the fifth book from the Agni Yoga Series which is composed of fourteen books. In them is found a synthesis of ancient Eastern beliefs and modern Western thought and a bridge between the spiritual and the scientific. Unlike previous yogas, Agni Yoga is a path not of physical disciplines, meditation, or asceticism—but of practice in daily life. It is the yoga of fiery energy, of consciousness, of responsible, directed thought. It teaches that the evolution of the planetary consciousness is a pressing necessity and that, through individual striving, it is an attainable aspiration for mankind. It affirms the existence of the Hierarchy of Light and the center of the Heart as the link with the Hierarchy and with the far-off worlds. Though not systematized in an ordinary sense, Ag...

Manifesting Abundance 2.0: Going Beyond the Law of Attraction

by Beau Norton

The Law of Attraction is Only a Stepping Stone

The law of attraction is a wonderful thing for many reasons. First, it shows us that we are responsible for our own lives and that we can create our lives through conscious choice. Many people in this world feel like they are victims who are at the mercy of outside forces beyond their control. Learning about the law of attraction is empowering for these people and is surely a huge step forward in their personal evolution. For this reason, I am very happy that more and more people are being made aware of this universal law.

In this short guide, however, I am going to teach you things that go beyond the law of attraction, because I believe it is very important for us all to continue to evolve to higher and higher levels...

The Epic of Kings- Hero Tales of Ancient Persia (Wisehouse Classics - The Authoritative Edition)

by Abuʾl-Qasim Ferdowsi Tusi

The Shahnameh, also transliterated as Shahnama (“The Book of Kings”), is a long epic poem written by the Persian poet Ferdowsi between c. 977 and 1010 CE and is the national epic of Greater Iran.

Today Iran, Azerbaijan, Afghanistan and the greater region influenced by the Persian culture (such as Georgia, Armenia, Turkey and Dagestan) celebrate this national epic.The work is of central importance in Persian culture, regarded as a literary masterpiece, and definitive of t...

Socrates, Plato and Aristotle: More Tips For Young Travellers, New Philosophers, and Older Searchers

by James Head

This eBook contains three succinct introductory essays on the philosophy of Socrates, Plato and Aristotle. New readers of Plato or Aristotle may be surprised to learn that ‘real’ Greek philosophy is just as much a practical subject as it is intellectual or academic pursuit. Philosophy simply means the love of wisdom and making ourselves a little bit wiser as we go through life. It is something we should all take a practical and intellectual interest in as we go through life. It is not the preserve of a small group of people.

The first eBook of three essays in this ‘Socrates 4 Today’ series (‘Essential Tips…..’) finished with an essay on Plato’s book The Phaedrus and Plato’s mythical charioteer driving his chariot (representing the soul) high up through the cl...

by Friedrich Nietzsche

Zarathustra's namesake was the founder of Zoroastrianism, usually known in English as Zoroaster (Avestan: Zaraϑuštra).
