Heidegger and Marcuse: The Catastrophe and Redemption of History

This brief ebook contrasts the philosophies of expertise of Heidegger and Marcuse, considered one of Heidegger's celebrity scholars, and relates their paintings to modern expertise stories. Feenberg units out the ancient and theoretical heritage of the controversy, then discusses every one philosopher's idea in flip, and ends with an enormous research of the results for modern know-how reports.

Die physikalischen und chemischen Grundlagen der Glasfabrikation

Die Wissenschaft yom Glase ist infolge der Anwendung neuer physi kalischer Auffassungen und Methoden derart in Breite und Tiefe an geschwollen, daB es dem Ingenieur und dem Studenten immer schwie riger wird, die wissenschaftlichen Fundamente zu iibersehen. Es ist Zweck dieses Buches, den Zusammenhang zwischen der Grundlagen forschung einerseits und der Glaschemie und der Technologie anderer seits wieder herzustellen.

Elements of Psychoanalysis

A dialogue of categorising the ideational context and emotional adventure which can ensue in a psychoanalytic interview. The textual content goals to extend the reader's knowing of cognition and its medical ramifications.

Then (53) [§16] Revision of Quantum Mechanics 25 which is, of course, different from the classical value of the velocity as p/m. This shows at once that we must be careful when dealing with velocities. Furthermore, we may expect that at least for a free particle p/m still represents correctly its particle velocity vg (which will be shown to be true at the end of this section) so that vp and vg must be expected to be different. We must now try to define more precisely what we mean by wave and particle velocities, which are called phase velocity vp and group velocity vg respectively.

Ii) The most general case, when fx and f2 in the expression f = cxfx c a re + ifi complex, has been considered in this exercise. The variational function / contains therefore four functions and the most general combination of them should contain four coefficients. However, since we have taken cx and c2 to be complex, we had exactly this number of coefficients. In the exercise, we had really four independent variables to vary, namely the real and imaginary parts of c1 and c2. It is simpler, however, as we have done, to replace these four variables by cl9 c29 c*9 and c29 treated as independent variables.

33) We want to estimate v(E)9 for which we must study the degeneracy arising from the possible combinations of κχ9 Ky9 and κζ (see Table 1).

Actually, since we can Β 8] Free-electron Theory of Metals 53 also take negative values of κχ and Ky, the figure should be extended symmetrically into all four quadrants.
