Weaving together the great ideas of science, The Reality Frame takes us on a thrilling journey from empty space all the way to the human mind. Acclaimed science writer Brian Clegg builds up reality piece by piece, from space, to time, to matter, movement, the fundamental forces, life, and the massive transformation that life itself has wrought on the natural world. He reveals that underlying it all is not, as we might believe, a system of immovable absolutes, but the ever-shifting, amorphous world of relativity. From religion to philosophy, humanity has traditionally sought out absolutes to explain the world around us, but as science has developed, relativity has swept away many of these certainties, leaving only a handful of unchangeable essentials – such as absolute zero, nothingness, light – leading to better science and a new understanding of the essence of being human. This is an Ascent of Man for the 21st century, the gripping story of modern science that will fill you with wonder and give you a new insight into our place in the universe.

Der Rahmen ist in der Kunstgeschichte mittlerweile mehr als die Einfassung eines Bildwerks: Ins Zentrum des Interesses ist gerückt, dass rahmende Strukturen Wahrnehmung steuern, Kommunikationsstrukturen etablieren und damit auch konzeptuelle frames erzeugen. Ausgehend von diesem Verständnis des Rahmens als multifunktionales Element, versammelt der Band Fallstudien aus Architektur, Malerei und Skulptur, die das funktionale, ästhetische und reflexive Potential von Rahmungen erörtern. Die einzelnen Beiträge umspannen den Zeitraum zwischen dem 4. und dem 18. Jahrhundert und zeigen, dass der durch das Zusammenwirken von Form, Struktur und Inhalt gebildete frame ein epochen- und medienunabhängiges künstlerisches Konzept darstellt.

In this beautifully written and deeply researched study, Hannah Frank provides an original way to understand American animated cartoons from the Golden Age of animation (1920–1960). In the pre-digital age of the twentieth century, the making of cartoons was mechanized and standardized: thousands of drawings were inked and painted onto individual transparent celluloid sheets (called “cels”) and then photographed in succession, a labor-intensive process that was divided across scores of artists and technicians. In order to see the art, labor, and technology of cel animation, Frank slows cartoons down to look frame by frame, finding hitherto unseen aspects of the animated image. What emerges is both a methodology and a highly original account of an art formed on the assembly line.

The Arbiters of Reality: Hawthorne, Melville, and the Rise of Mass Information Culture disrupts our critical sense of nineteenth-century American literature by examining the storytelling strategies of both Nathaniel Hawthorne and Herman Melville in light of an emerging information industry. Peter West reveals how these writers invoked telegraphic and penny press journalism, daguerreotypy, and moving panoramas in their fiction to claim for themselves a privileged access to a reality beyond the reach of a burgeoning mass audience. Locating Hawthorne and Melville in vivid and overlooked contexts—the Salem Murder scandal of 1830, which transformed Hawthorne's quiet city into a media-manufactured spectacle, and Melville's New York City of 1846–47, where the American Telegraph was powerfully articulating a nation at war—West portrays the romance as a reactive, deeply rhetorical literary form and a rich historical artifact. In the early twenty-first century, it has become a postmodern cliché to place the word “reality” in scare quotes. The Arbiters of Reality suggests that attending to the construction of the real in public life is more than simply a language of critique: it must also be understood as a specific kind of romantic self-invention.

Talcott Parsons

In the social sciences, the reality consists of meanings that have psychological,
social, and cultural elements, whose actual qualities can be captured ever more
fully by further development of the frame of reference (Parsons, 1949b, Preface).

Talcott Parsons ist der letzte klassische Theoretiker der Soziologie. »Heute ... kann keine Gesellschaftstheorie ernst genommen werden, die sich nicht zu der von Parsons wenigstens in Beziehung setzt.« (Jürgen Habermas) Parsons ́ Theorie wurde zu einem Markstein, der aus der öffentlichen Diskussion um die Integrationsfähigkeit der modernen Gesellschaft und erst recht aus der gegenwärtigen Debatte über die Erneuerung der großen Theoriesynthesen in der Soziologie nicht mehr wegzudenken ist. Der Band enthält einen bisher unveröffentlichten Rückblick arsons ́ auf das Problem der Konvergenz in der soziologischen Theorie sowie Beiträge von Andreas Balog, Keith Doubt, Renée Fox, Josef Langer, Max Haller, Victor M. Lidz/Harold J. Bershady, Tamás Meleghy, Gerald Mozetic, Dénes Némedi, Jeremy Tanner, Bryan S. Turner.

"The technology that allows the communication of ideas and information through an electronic medium (such as a computer or a television) has transformed when, where and how we learn. This book shows that tele-learning - making connections between people and resources by sending and receiving signals through carriers such as wire, cables and air, for learning-related purposes - is a multi-faceted phenomenon, using and affecting many different types of people, and offering us a special opportunity to develop new pedagogies and improve old ways of learning." "Tele-learning in a Digital World takes a thematic approach: It examines the many scenarios where tele-learning occurs, such as distance education, online situations (the Internet and the World Wide Web), professional development via application sharing, and more, than discusses those involved in tele-learning - from parents and teachers to professionals in education and telecommunications - and their major roles. It then reviews current pedagogical practice and identifies the new opportunities for improved learning brought by 'tele-technology'."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

Develop cost-effective, long-term solutions for packetized voice Analysts agree that within the next decade virtually all telecommunication traffic will travel over packet networks. Should your packetized voice be delivered over layer 2 networks such as ATM or frame relay, or over layer 3 IP networks? What are the challenges associated with ATM and frame relay? Drawing upon years of practical and research experience with both voice over ATM and voice over frame relay, the authors consider the advantages and disadvantages of frame relay and ATM versus IP networks. The book covers engineering requirements in depth and suggests likely interim steps for scaling up to a voice over data network by providing: * A telephony tutorial for network managers * Comparative assessments of voice over frame relay, ATM, and the Internet * Overviews of all the enabling technologies involved * In-depth coverage of voice characteristics, compression standards, and QoS * An extensive case study illustrating the pros and cons of voice over data * Guidelines to help you decide when (or whether) to invest in voice over data technology, and how to choose the best type for your organization.
