Heidegger and Marcuse: The Catastrophe and Redemption of History

This brief e-book contrasts the philosophies of expertise of Heidegger and Marcuse, one in every of Heidegger's celebrity students, and relates their paintings to modern know-how experiences.

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.

Multiplying a number by 0 equals 0. For example, 256 ϫ 0 ϭ 0. Dividing a number by 0, however, is undefined. Why is dividing a number by 0 undefined?

He began to explore the various ways of filling two-dimensional space with symmetrically repeated arrangements of images known as tessellations. In the process, he discovered the same principles that had been developed previously, unknown to Escher, within the branch of mathematics known as group theory. When mathematicians and scientists became aware of his work, they helped popularize his art, and he soon gained an international reputation. Subsequent interactions with mathematicians introduced Escher to other mathematical concepts that he explored in his art.
