The papers in this volume provide us with a good sample of contemporary
metaphysical inquiries. The first essay, by Zovko and Zovko, develops an account of
the nature of metaphysical inquiry in general, which account is grounded in the
history of this discipline. Their essay illuminates the great divide between ancient and
medieval thought, on the one hand and modern and post-modern metaphysical
thinking, on the other.
This work is called the Critique of Practical Reason, not of the pure practical reason, although its parallelism
with the speculative critique would seem to require the latter term. The reason of this appears sufficiently
from the treatise itself. Its business is to show that there is pure practical reason, and for this purpose it
criticizes the entire practical faculty of reason.
Taken as a whole, the German cinema is both more and less than the sum of its
films. When one thinks of individual titles, quite a few, especially from the 1920s and
early 1930s, have entered the canon, have become cultural icons the world over. Yet in
these very same classics, the brilliant and the dark sides of their genius appear not only
close together but inextricable. If we think of The Golem, The Cabinet of Dr Caligari,
Nosferatu and Dr Mabuse: these are titles which by themselves evoke the spirit of an
age, conjuring up...
When XML first appeared, people widely believed that it was the imminent successor to HTML.
This viewpoint was influenced by a variety of factors, including media hype, wishful thinking, and
simple confusion about the number of new technologies associated with XML. The reality is that
millions of web sites are written in HTML, and no widely used browser fully supports XML and its
According to the objective idealist philosophy, thinking is a product of "absolute idea" as a supernatural instinct, independent, not dependent on the material. According to George Wilhemer Fridrick Heghen: "The concept of absolute origins and its activities can only be expressed in thought, in the form of speculative science alone". . Karl Marx said: "For Heghen, the movement of thinking he personified under the name" the idea "that God created reality; reality is only appearance of ideas"
This book is now in its fifth edition. Each edition has corresponded to a different
phase in the way computer networks were used. When the first edition appeared
in 1980, networks were an academic curiosity. When the second edition
appeared in 1988, networks were used by universities and large businesses. When
the third edition appeared in 1996, computer networks, especially the Internet, had
become a daily reality for millions of people. By the fourth edition, in 2003, wireless
networks and mobile computers had become commonplace for accessing the
Web and the Internet.
We appear to be on the threshold of witnessing a substantial reduction in the longterm
complications of diabetes. Modern treatment regimens, better monitoring of
control and the huge impact of improved education all combine to offer the
prospect of real progress towards prevention of complications and lessening of
progression in those in whom complications may be present. The Diabetes Control
and Complications Trial (DCCT) has provided eveidence that such can be
achieved, while the St Vincent Declaration initiative has set the standards to
enable these benefits to become reality....
With the latest algorithm change by Google, it has become important to gauge the landscape now and see what works and what doesn't. A lot of websites crashed down the search rankings because they did not correlate well with the changes that were put in by Google and its team. Videos are one of those modern day realities that are growing in strength and it appears they have a big role to play in the success of a website.
In an era of spectacular medical advances, it is easy to become immune to
the announcement of new “breakthroughs”. This in no way lessens the
remarkable achievements of diagnostic imaging over the last few years in
which the field of Nuclear Medicine has shared. To the outsider the specialty
of Nuclear Medicine can appear confusing and esoteric since it operates
in a world of invisible radioactive emissions, nuclear decay charts and
