Das erste Rätsel, vor dem ich stand, war: Wie konnte es sein, dass ich immer noch depressiv war, obwohl ich Antidepressiva nahm? Ich machte alles richtig - und doch lief etwas falsch. Warum? Das zweite Rätsel: Warum gibt es heute so viel mehr Menschen, die unter Depressionen und schweren Ängsten leiden? Was hat sich verändert? Da ging mir auf, dass noch ein drittes Rätsel über allem schwebte. Konnte es sein, dass etwas anderes, und nicht die Chemie in meinem Hirn, Depressionen und Ängste bei mir und so vielen anderen Menschen auslöste? Und wenn ja: Was konnte es sein? »Wenn Sie sich jemals niedergeschlagen oder verloren gefühlt haben, wird dieses Buch Ihr Leben ändern.« Elton John »Eine wunderbare und bestechende Analyse.« Hillary Clinton »Ein Buch, das viel über unsere innere Verzweiflung und unseren Lebenswandel verrät« Naomi Klein »Ein brillanter, anregender und radikaler Ansatz zur psychischen Gesundheit« Matt Haig

The purpose of this book is to look for a richer means of communication in the classroom than the almost exclusive use of discursive language. It specifically focuses on the teaching of aesthetic appreciations, and offers presentational symbolism as a complement to discursive language. Part I locates some key descriptions and definitions of various kinds of language in the works of Huyghe, Langer, Wheelwright and Denton. It also stresses the limitations of discursive language and then focuses on the inability of discursive language to communicate appreciative feelings. Part II offers a semiological approach to presentational symbolism, studies the key elements of the language of images, treats the relationship between images and discursive language, considers the relationship between music, images and verbal language, and focuses on the correspondences between various art forms.

Connections is a brilliant examination of the ideas, inventions, and coincidences that have culminated in the major technological achievements of today. How did the popularity of underwear in the twelfth century lead to the invention of the printing press? How did the waterwheel evolve into the computer? How did the arrival of the cannon lead eventually to the development of movies? In this highly acclaimed and bestselling book, James Burke brilliantly examines the ideas, inventions, and coincidences that have culminated in the major technological advances of today. With dazzling insight, he untangles the pattern of interconnecting events: the accidents of time, circumstance, and place that gave rise to the major inventions of the world. Says Burke, "My purpose is to acquaint the reader with some of the forces that have caused change in the past, looking in particular at eight innovations—the computer, the production line, telecommunications, the airplane, the atomic bomb, plastics, the guided rocket, and television—which may be most influential in structuring our own futures....Each one of these is part of a family of similar devices, and is the result of a sequence of closely connected events extending from the ancient world until the present day. Each has enormous potential for humankind's benefit—or destruction." Based on a popular TV documentary series, Connections is a fascinating scientific detective story of the inventions that changed history—and the surprising links that connect them.

"In their fascinating analysis of the recent history of information technology, H. Peter Alesso and Craig F. Smith reveal the patterns in discovery and innovation that have brought us to the present tipping point. . . . A generation from now, every individual will have personally tailored access to the whole of knowledge . . . the sooner we all begin to think about how we got here, and where we're going, the better. This exciting book is an essential first step." —From the Foreword by James Burke Many people envision scientists as dispassionate characters who slavishly repeat experiments until "eureka"—something unexpected happens. Actually, there is a great deal more to the story of scientific discovery, but seeing "the big picture" is not easy. Connections: Patterns of Discovery uses the primary tools of forecasting and three archetypal patterns of discovery—Serendipity, Proof of Principle, and 1% Inspiration and 99% Perspiration—to discern relationships of past developments and synthesize a cohesive and compelling vision for the future. It challenges readers to think of the consequences of extrapolating trends, such as Moore's Law, to either reach real machine intelligence or retrench in the face of physical limitations. From this perspective,the book draws "the big picture" for the Information Revolution's innovations in chips, devices, software, and networks. With a Foreword by James Burke and bursting with fascinating detail throughout, Connections: Patterns of Discovery is a must-read for computer scientists, technologists, programmers, hardware and software developers, students, and anyone with an interest in tech-savvy topics.

Rob Black, a college sophomore, has been experiencing some complications. Battling crippling paranoia and delusions due to an undiagnosed case of schizophrenia, he inadvertently projects his fears onto the failures of society. Sensing he is being called to action, Rob sets off, vastly unprepared, on a trip across the nation to take matters into his own hands. After repeated failed plans and expectations about his "mission" he finds himself cold, delusional, and at the point of collapse on a desolate backcountry road. His salvation comes in the form of a lonely middle aged woman named Sharon with numerous problems of her own. She is perhaps as mixed up as Rob, but in a different, more latent way. Rob's saga ends as he is returned home to a mental hospital and finds that, through a seemingly insignificant turn of events, he has inadvertently saved Sharon from taking her own life. Connections is a compelling look at what happens when a dangerously delusional mind takes on an endeavor that is far too large for its own good. It received the award for best premise at the Pike's Peak Writer's Conference 2007 American Icon contest.

Connections: Four people with nothing in common. A young girl dreams of the fairground; a woman needs to quit smoking and a detective drinks too much as he listens to tales of dead men who walk. Dr Harrison waits in the dark place for a sign. He has little else to do having passed away over thirty years ago. Elsewhere, a hypnotist's light blinks its slow soporific beat in a darkened room off a Kings Cross back street and somewhere, in another world, a dead man shields his eyes from the glare. Connections: A journey that starts with a young girl's dreams and a young woman's hopes and finishes across time and across reality into the very darkest of wastelands. A place where demons walk and the light cannot exist and where a seven-year old girl, dressed only in pyjama's, must stand tall and fight for us all.
