A Kingdom of Stargazers by Michael A. Ryan

A Kingdom of Stargazers: Astrology and Authority in the Late Medieval Crown of Aragon by Michael A. Ryan
Requirements: .ePUB reader, 828.2 Kb
Overview: Astrology in the Middle Ages was considered a branch of the magical arts, one informed by Jewish and Muslim scientific knowledge in Muslim Spain. As such it was deeply troubling to some Church authorities. Using the stars and planets to divine the future ran counter to the orthodox Christian notion that human beings have free will, and some clerical authorities argued that it almost certainly entailed the summoning of spiritual forces considered diabolical. We know that occult beliefs and practices became widespread in the later Middle Ages, but there is much about the phenomenon that we do not understand. For instance, how deeply did occult beliefs penetrate courtly culture and what exactly did those in positions of power hope to gain by interacting with the occult? In A Kingdom of Stargazers, Michael A. Ryan examines the interest in astrology in the Iberian kingdom of Aragon, where ideas about magic and the occult were deeply intertwined with notions of power, authority, and providence.

Conversations with JFK by Michael O’Brien

Conversations with JFK: A Fictional Dialogue Based on Biographical Facts by Michael O’Brien
Requirements: .ePUB reader, 480 KB
Overview: Imagined by one of the world’s foremost JFK scholars, this fictionalised conversation presents the essential biography of America’s most glamorous and mythologised president.

For many, the presidency of John F. Kennedy was a magic interlude in American history. His admirers saw him as a leader of intelligence and imagination, who wielded power with grace, courage and verve – although detractors have questioned the depth of his convictions and drawn attention to his serial philandering.

Kennedy’s rise also marked the beginning of modern "celebrity" politics – a politician with film star charisma who proved ideally suited to the new age of television. Meet the man himself and he’ll tell you how it felt to have his finger on the red button when the world teetered on the brink of nuclear war.

Over the past twenty years, the study of dinosaurs has transformed into a true scientific discipline. New technologies have revealed secrets locked in prehistoric bones that no one could have previously predicted. We can now work out the color of dinosaurs, the force of their bite, their top speeds, and even how they cared for their young.

Remarkable new fossil discoveries-giant sauropod dinosaur skeletons in Patagonia, dinosaurs with feathers in China, and a tiny dinosaur tail in Burmese amber-remain the lifeblood of modern paleobiology. Thanks to advances in technologies and methods, however, there has been a recent revolution in the scope of new information gleaned from such fossil finds.

Conversations in Cognitive Neuroscience by Michael S. Gazzaniga

Conversations in the Cognitive Neurosciences by Michael S. Gazzaniga
Requirements: .PDF reader, 7.4 Mb
Overview: All too frequently, the book does not measure up to the movie, the novel lacks the punch of the serialized chapters, and the entire antholoy is a pale reflection of the most arresting short stories. Conversations in the Cognitive Neurosciences is a happy exception. Michael Gazzaniga has integrated a series of interviews with leading brain and mind scientists. The result is a thematically coherent whole that is rich in substance and style. Using focused but open-ended questions to engage thoughtful, articulate practitioners, Gazzaniga elicits a rich mix of historical perspective and cutting-edge science. Each of the interviews provides wonderfully personal and insightful accounts of cognitive neuroscience and the relationship of mind and brain.
