The best things in my Ufe have come to me by accident and this book
results from one such accident: my having the opportunity, out of the
blue, to go to work as H. Tristram Engelhardt, Jr.'s, research assistant at
the Institute for the Medical Humanities in the University of Texas Medical
Branch at Galveston, Texas, in 1974, on the recommendation of our
teacher at the University of Texas at Austin, Irwin C. Lieb. During that
summer Tris "lent" me to Chester Bums, who has done important scholarly
work over the years on the history of medical ethics....
The Italian Renaissance introduced Europe to a secular viewpoint and led to artistic and intellectual accomplishments. Intellectual change led to Christian humanism and, finally, the Reformation-a break with the Catholic Church. As the Reformation spread across Europe, different forms of Protestantism emerged.

The Scientific Revolution expanded knowledge of the universe and the human body. It also gave rise to an intellectual movement-the enlightenment. The topics discussed in this chapter are: The scientific revolution, the enlightenment, the impact of enlightenment, the american revolution.
The peace settlements at the end of World War I combined with severe economic problems to produce widespread discontent across Europe. Democratic rule in many states gave way to fascism, authoritarianism, and totalitarianism. The following will be discussed in this chapter: The futile search for stability, the rise of dictatorial regimes, Hitler and Nazi Germany, cultural and intellectual trends.
“Cohen has produced a broad, engaging, and admirably clear discussion of intangible assets and their valuation. There is useful background here for thinking about diverse areas of the law—in addition to obvious applications in intellectual property, corporate, and securities law, one thinks of, for example, administrative law, where debates about cost-benefit analysis ranging over intangible (and often ephemeral) assets are both ubiquitous and contentious.
"After us, the deluge!" said Louis XV of France. He died in 1774, and the remaining quarter of the eighteenth
century witnessed social changes the most radical, the most widespread which had convulsed civilization
since the fall of Rome. "As soon as our peasants seek education," said Catharine II of Russia to one of her
ministers, "neither you nor I will retain our places." Catharine, one of the shrewdest women of her day, judged
her own people by the more advanced civilization of Western Europe.

Contributions of Medieval Muslim Scholars to the History of Economics and their Impact: A Refutation of the Schumpeterian 1 Great Gap

The Formalist Revolution of the 1950s
Something happened to economics in the decade of the 1950s that is little appreciated by most economists and even by professional historians of economic thought: the subject went through an intellectual revolution as profound in its impact

Ancient and Medieval Economics
When dealing with the economic thought of antiquity, we must give primary attention to the ancient Greeks, whose writings have been preserved and form an integral part of our European intellectual heritage.
An attempt has been made in these pages to trace the evolution of intellectual thought in the progress of astronomical discovery, and, by recognising the different points of view of the different ages, to give due credit even to the ancients. No one can expect, in a history of astronomy of limited size, to find a treatise on “practical” or on “theoretical astronomy,” nor a complete “descriptive astronomy,” and still less a book on “speculative astronomy.
This is an unusual book, combining as it does papers on astrobiology,
history of astronomy and sundials, but—after all—Woody Sullivan is an
unusual man. In late 2003 I spent two fruitful and enjoyable months in the
Astronomy Department at the University of Washington (UW) working on
archival material accumulated over the decades by Woody, for a book we
will co-author with Jessica Chapman on the early development of Australian

Discovery, learning, and societal engagement are mutually supportive core
missions of the research university. Transfer of knowledge to those in society
who can make use of it for the general good contributes to each of these
missions. These transfers occur through publications, training and education of
students, employment of graduates, conferences, consultations, and
collaboration as well as by obtaining rights to inventions and discoveries that
qualify for patent protection (intellectual property, or IP) and licensing them to
The excuse for writing another history of the Reformation is the need for putting that movement in its proper
relations to the economic and intellectual revolutions of the sixteenth century. The labor of love necessary for
the accomplishment of this task has employed most of my leisure for the last six years and has been my
companion through vicissitudes of sorrow and of joy. A large part of the pleasure derived from the task has
come from association with friends who have generously put their time and thought at my disposal....
Our modern civilization is built up on three great corner-stones, three inestimably valuable heritages from the
past. The Græco-Roman civilization gave us our arts and our philosophies, the bases of intellectual power.
The Hebrews bequeathed to us the religious idea, which has saved man from despair, has been the potent
stimulus to two thousand years of endurance and hope. The Teutons gave us a healthy, sturdy,
uncontaminated physique, honest bodies and clean minds, the lack of which had made further progress impossible to the ancient world.

The History of Ideas and Economics
Ideas are intellectualized concepts. Some seem so attractive that they are benchmarks, or “authority-statements.” Different authority-statements develop, intermingle, and mature into comprehensive “authority-systems".

This miniaturization of huge trees is an ancient art in China and Japan. It has been linked to intellectual and religious philosophies and is a difficult art form to do well.
The controversy continues about where bonsai originated, the vote seems to favor China, although the art developed over thousands of years from its beginnings and really took hold in Japan in what were the middle ages in Europe where it was the province of the upper castes.
