☯ Full Synopsis : "The Discarded Image paints a lucid picture of the medieval world view, providing the historical and cultural background to the literature of the middle ages and renaissance. It describes the 'image' discarded by later years as 'the medieval synthesis itself, the whole organization of their theology, science and history into a single, complex, harmonious mental model of the universe'. This, Lewis's last book, has been hailed as 'the final memorial to the work of a great scholar and teacher and a wise and noble mind'."Article| C. S. Lewis| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : Destin cosmique
☯ Full Synopsis : "" La vie intelligente n'est ni fortuite ni négligeable ; elle occupe dans l'Univers une place particulière insoupçonnée. " Décryptant les découvertes les plus récentes de l'astronomie et de la physique, Joel R. Primack, cosmologiste renommé, et Nancy Ellen Abrams, philosophe et écrivain, nous proposent une vision radicalement différente du cosmos : il n'est pas tout là-haut, il est ici même ! Pour les auteurs, nous sommes la première génération à pouvoir scientifiquement démontrer que l'homme occupe une place centrale dans l'Univers. La cosmologie actuelle, qui appréhende l'Univers comme un Tout, sait nous dire de quoi ce dernier est fait, comment il est né, comment il évolue... Les deux auteurs nous expliquent de quelle façon la science la plus sophistiquée, à l'image des mythes de jadis, replace l'homme au centre du monde : nous sommes composés du matériau le plus rare, nous vivons à une époque intermédiaire - à la moitié de la vie de la Terre -, notre cerveau et son intelligence sont au sommet de la complexité universelle. Renouant avec d'anciennes métaphores, Primack et Abrams ont créé une série de symboles contemporains exprimant ce lien entre l'homme et le cosmos. Quand elle aura finalement lieu, la " prise de conscience cosmique " moderne pourrait bien avoir des implications révolutionnaires sur la vision que chacun d'entre nous a de lui-même, de la Terre, de son futur et de celui de ses enfants. " En comprenant mieux l'Univers, nous commençons à mieux nous comprendre nous-mêmes. ""Article| Nancy Ellen ABRAMS, Joel R PRIMACK| Statement ..."
♥ Book Title : The A-Z of C. S. Lewis
☯ Full Synopsis : "C S Lewis is widely known worldwide, but often enthusiasts are only aware of one part of his work - his children's stories, perhaps, but not his science fiction, or his literary criticism; his popular theology but not his work for the BBC during the Second World War. This volume brings together all aspects of C S Lewis's life and thought. Arranged in alphabetical order, it goes from The abolition of man - a book Lewis wrote in 1943 and described as 'almost my favourite' to Wormwood, a character in The Screwtape Letters. This book will delight anyone who is interested in C S Lewis and wants to learn more about him, his thought, his works and his life."Article| Colin Duriez| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : If A, Then B
☯ Full Synopsis : "While logical principles seem timeless, placeless, and eternal, their discovery is a story of personal accidents, political tragedies, and broad social change. If A, Then B begins with logic’s emergence twenty-three centuries ago and tracks its expansion as a discipline ever since. It explores where our sense of logic comes from and what it really is a sense of. It also explains what drove human beings to start studying logic in the first place. Logic is more than the work of logicians alone. Its discoveries have survived only because logicians have also been able to find a willing audience, and audiences are a consequence of social forces affecting large numbers of people, quite apart from individual will. This study therefore treats politics, economics, technology, and geography as fundamental factors in generating an audience for logic—grounding the discipline’s abstract principles in a compelling material narrative. The authors explain the turbulent times of the enigmatic Aristotle, the ancient Stoic Chrysippus, the medieval theologian Peter Abelard, and the modern thinkers René Descartes, David Hume, Jeremy Bentham, George Boole, Augustus De Morgan, John Stuart Mill, Gottlob Frege, Bertrand Russell, and Alan Turing. Examining a variety of mysteries, such as why so many branches of logic (syllogistic, Stoic, inductive, and symbolic) have arisen only in particular places and periods, If A, Then B is the first book to situate the history of logic within the movements of a larger social world."Article| Michael Shenefelt, Heidi White| Statement ..."
