You Are the Eyes of the World (eBook, ePUB)
11,95 € *

Just as the images on television are nothing more than light, so are our experiences merely the dance of awareness. Often we form attachments to or feel enslaved by these experiences. But they are only reflections. As easily as television pictures vanish when the channel is changed, the power of our experiences fades if we penetrate to the heart of reality—the light of the natural mind within everyone. You Are the Eyes of the World presents a method for discovering awareness everywhere, all the time. This book does not discuss how to turn ordinary life off, and it does not describe how to create beautiful spiritual experiences; it shows how to live within the source of all life, the unified field where experience takes place.

From 2015 to 2017, Peter Sagan achieved the seemingly impossible: he won three road race World Championships in a row, ensuring his entry into the history books as one of the greatest riders of all time. But to look at Peter´s record in isolation is to tell only a fraction of his story, because Peter doesn´t just win: he entertains. Every moment in the saddle is an opportunity to express his personality, and nobody else has succeeded in making elite cycling look so much fun. From no-hands wheelies on the slopes of Mont Ventoux to press conference mischief with clamouring journalists, Peter exudes a passion for the sport and a lovable desire to bring smiles to the faces of his fans. So, for the very first time, you will have the opportunity to glimpse behind the scenes of Peter´s world. You will discover the gruelling training programmes necessary for success, and how Peter copes with the pressure of high expectation. You will feel that sense of elation when crossing the line ahead of the pack, and moments of desperation, like in 2017 when Peter realised he wouldn´t be allowed to challenge for his sixth Tour de France green jersey. But what better tonic than to ensure a third year in rainbow - an achievement which may never be repeated again.

´One of the best books yet written on data and algorithms. . .deserves a place on the bestseller charts.´ ( The Times ) You are accused of a crime. Who would you rather determined your fate - a human or an algorithm? An algorithm is more consistent and less prone to error of judgement. Yet a human can look you in the eye before passing sentence. Welcome to the age of the algorithm, the story of a not-too-distant future where machines rule supreme, making important decisions - in healthcare, transport, finance, security, what we watch, where we go even who we send to prison. So how much should we rely on them? What kind of future do we want? Hannah Fry takes us on a tour of the good, the bad and the downright ugly of the algorithms that surround us. In Hello World she lifts the lid on their inner workings, demonstrates their power, exposes their limitations, and examines whether they really are an improvement on the humans they are replacing.

Weitere Informationen zum Buch und zur Autorin finden Sie beim Sie sind eines Verbrechens angeklagt. Wer soll über Ihr Schicksal entscheiden? Ein menschlicher Richter oder ein Computer-Algorithmus? Sie sind sich absolut sicher? Sie zögern womöglich? In beiden Fällen sollten Sie das Buch der jungen Mathematikerin und Moderatorin Hannah Fry lesen, das mit erfrischender Direktheit über Algorithmen aufklärt, indem es von Menschen handelt. Algorithmen prägen in wachsendem Ausmaß den Alltag von Konsum, Finanzen, Medizin, Polizei, Justiz, Demokratie und sogar Kunst. Sie sortieren die Welt für uns, eröffnen neue Optionen und nehmen uns Entscheidungen ab - schnell, effektiv, gründlich. Aber sie tun das, ohne zu fragen, und stellen uns vor neue Dilemmata. Vor allem jedoch: Wir neigen dazu, Algorithmen als eine Art Autorität zu betrachten. statt ihre Macht infrage zu stellen. Keine Dimension unserer Welt, in der sie nicht längst Einzug gehalten haben: Algorithmen, diese unscheinbaren Folgen von Anweisungen, die im Internet sowieso, aber auch in jedem Computerprogramm tätig sind, prägen in wachsendem, beängstigendem Ausmaß den Alltag von Konsum, Finanzen, Medizin, Polizei, Justiz, Demokratie und sogar Kunst. Sie sortieren die Welt für uns, eröffnen neue Optionen und nehmen uns Entscheidungen ab - schnell, effektiv, gründlich. Aber sie tun das häufig, ohne uns zu fragen, und sie stellen uns vor neue, keineswegs einfach zu lösende Dilemmata. Vor allem aber: Wir neigen dazu, Algorithmen als eine Art Autorität zu betrachten, statt ihre Macht in Frage zu stellen. Das öffnet Menschen, die uns ausbeuten wollen, Tür und Tor. Es verhindert aber auch, dass wir bessere Algorithmen bekommen. Solche, die uns bei Entscheidungen unterstützen, anstatt über uns zu verfügen. Die offenlegen, wie sie zu einer bestimmten Entscheidung gelangen. Demokratische, menschliche Algorithmen. Dafür plädiert dieses Buch - zugänglich, unterhaltsam, hochinformativ.

In the tradition of Roland Barthes´ Mythologies and Walter Benjamin´s aphoristic Theses on the Philosophy of History, Ed Simon´s Furnace of this World is a fragmentary, digressive, impressionistic account of what the radical implications of goodness could possibly be in late capitalism. Furnace of this World interrogates the concept of goodness, while arguing that it´s always more interesting and radical than its opposite. With neither hubris nor reductionism, Furnace of this World speaks of what it means to pursue justice in a fallen world.

The Mediated World (eBook, ePUB)
44,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Today´s students have a world of knowledge at their fingertips, and no longer need textbooks filled with names and dates crammed into a single volume. The Mediated World takes as its starting point the understanding that readers want a compelling story, a good read, an intelligent analysis, and a new way of looking at the media revolutions around us. It is designed as a life line to help students understand and interpret the sea of media washing over us all. In this text, David Mindich writes for students who want to understand how we communicate to one another, how we process our world, and how the media shapes us. His engaging and narrative style focuses on concepts and real-world contexts--he avoids a dry recitation of facts--that helps students understand their own personal relationship with media and gives them the tools to push back against the media forces. One of the primary goals of The Mediated World is to empower readers by giving them a thorough understanding of the media; and by teaching them how to counter the force of the media and at the same time use this force for their own ends. Readers of this book come to recognize that they have the potential to be not only active consumers of media but producers of it on a scale never seen before.
