What Mathematics Can Teach Us About the Mind
There is more than one way to think. Most people are familiar with the systematic, rule-based thinking that one finds in a mathematical proof or a computer program. But such thinking does not produce breakthroughs in mathematics and science nor is it the kind of thinking that results in significant learning. Deep thinking is a different and more basic way of using the mind. It results in the$19.99
Science and the Crisis of Uncertainty
In today's unpredictable and chaotic world, we look to science to provide certainty and answers--and often blame it when things go wrong. The Blind Spot reveals why our faith in scientific certainty is a dangerous illusion, and how only by embracing science's inherent ambiguities and paradoxes can we truly appreciate its beauty and harness its potential. Crackling with insights into our most$19.99
Using Ambiguity, Contradiction, and Paradox to Create Mathematics
To many outsiders, mathematicians appear to think like computers, grimly grinding away with a strict formal logic and moving methodically--even algorithmically--from one black-and-white deduction to another. Yet mathematicians often describe their most important breakthroughs as creative, intuitive responses to ambiguity, contradiction, and paradox. A unique examination of this less-familiar$3.99
Epistemology and Social Science
The essay "Epistemology and Social Science" was written by Professor Frithjof Bergmann in 1973. This remarkable work focuses on the question: Is a physics of social phenomena possible? As this work was never published before, Flow Zone Edition, in particular Thomas Staehelin, Katrin Steglich and Klaus Kampmann, are proud to publish this work of Frithjof Bergmann 40 years later in 2013.$0.99
Visual Intuitionism: The Handbook of use of visual logic thinking in everyday life
This book presents the technique of visual logic thinking. The technique consists of separate consecutive parts, which as whole become "skeleton" for information processing with following topics: mnemonic technique of memorization of events and dialogues, visual analysis of events in space and time, visualization of semantic connections and taxonomical groups of abstract essences, estimation of$10.69
Meaning in Absurdity: What bizarre phenomena can tell us about the nature of reality
What bizarre phenomena can tell us about the nature of reality
This book is an experiment. Inspired by the bizarre and uncanny, it is an attempt to use science and rationality to lift the veil off the irrational. Its ways are unconventional: weaving along its path one finds UFOs and fairies, quantum mechanics, analytic philosophy, history, mathematics, and depth psychology. The enterpri...$10.95
Translated from the French by Allan J. Silberger
Algebraic number theory introduces students to new algebraic notions as well as related concepts: groups, rings, fields, ideals, quotient rings, and quotient fields. This text covers the basics, from divisibility theory in principal ideal domains to the unit theorem, finiteness of the class number, and Hilbert ramification theory. 1970 edition.
