One of the most exciting voices in contemporary French philosophy and the creator of the practice of ´non-philosophy,´ Laruelle draws on material from the traditions of Christianity, Judaism and Gnosticism, but he does so by suspending their authority. This provocative, yet remarkably accessible book introduces philosophy to the lessons of heresy and makes use of them in a non-philosophical ´´dualysis´´ of messianism and apocalypticism. Future Christ opens up novel ways of thinking within existing religious and philosophical thought and marks an incisive and wide-ranging non-philosophical engagement with key contemporary debates in philosophy and theology.

Prepared and edited by Rick Mooney, a well-known Suzuki teacher, teacher-trainer, and member of the Suzuki Cello Committee, these books contain harmony parts to go with many of the pieces in the Suzuki Cello School, Volumes 1, 2, 3, and 4. All of these pieces have been arranged to resemble, as much as possible, the existing piano accompaniments. These ensembles enable a cello teacher (who does not play or have access to a piano) to play harmony parts with students to prepare them for the time when a piano and pianist are available. These parts also provide additional challenges for the more advanced player during a group lesson. Volume 1 contents are: Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star Theme and Variations (Shinichi Suzuki) French Folk Song (Folk Song) Song of the Wind (Folk Song) Go Tell Aunt Rhody (Folk Song) O Come, Little Children (Folk Song) May Song (Folk Song) Allegro (Shinichi Suzuki) Perpetual Motion (Shinichi Suzuki) Long, Long Ago (T.H.

This book offers a structured, deductive approach to Austrian investing, beginning with an analysis of the current investing paradigm. There are five economic concepts on which the Austrian School of Economics has a unique view: Entrepreneurship, Class Probability, Capital, the Interest Rate, and Institutions. This book explains, lesson by lesson, how each of theseshapes our thinking about investing. If we follow them through their logical consequences, they leave us with a unique approach to investing. Except for the theory of probability, there has not been a comprehensive analysis of the linkages between these concepts, when it comes to investing. Although they would have been obvious to the average investor before the age of democracy, since the French and American revolutions, government interventions have steadily transformed the way we think about them (and the way we invest). Above all, Entrepreneurship and Institutions are downplayed today, while investors use Case Probability, and confuse the concepts of Money and Capital. This book offers a historical review of these interventions, to shed light on how we went from what was common sense to the status quo. Offering a sometimes technical analysis, the book examines a series of fundamental investment fallacies, their origins and how not to fall for them.
´´A wonderfully vivid portrait of the man behind Sherlock Holmes . . . Like all the best historical true crime books, it´s about so much more than crime.´´-Tana French, author of In the Woods A sensational Edwardian murder. A scandalous wrongful conviction. Sir Arthur Conan Doyle to the rescue-a true story. After a wealthy woman was brutally murdered in her Glasgow home in 1908, the police found a convenient suspect in Oscar Slater, an immigrant Jewish cardsharp. Though he was known to be innocent, Slater was tried, convicted, and consigned to life at hard labor. Outraged by this injustice, Arthur Conan Doyle, already world renowned as the creator of Sherlock Holmes, used the methods of his most famous character to reinvestigate the case, ultimately winning Slater´s freedom. With ´´an eye for the telling detail, a forensic sense of evidence and a relish for research´´ (The Wall Street Journal), Margalit Fox immerses readers in the science of Edwardian crime detection and illuminates a watershed moment in its history, when reflexive prejudice began to be replaced by reason and the scientific method. Praise for Conan Doyle for the Defense ´´Artful and compelling . . . [Fox´s] narrative momentum never flags. . . . Conan Doyle for the Defense will captivate almost any reader while being pure catnip for the devotee of true-crime writing.´´-The Washington Post ´´Developed with brio . . . [Fox] is excellent in linking the 19th-century creation of policing and detection with the development of both detective fiction and the science of forensics-ballistics, fingerprints, toxicology and serology-as well as the quasi science of ´criminal anthropology.´´´-The New York Times Book Review ´´[Fox] has an eye for the telling detail, a forensic sense of evidence and a relish for research.´´-The Wall Street Journal ´´Gripping . . . The book works on two levels, much like a good Holmes case. First, it is a fluid story of a crime. . . . Second, and more pertinently, it is a deeper story of how prejudice against a class of people, the covering up of sloppy police work and a poisonous political atmosphere can doom an innocent. We should all heed Holmes´s salutary lesson: rationally follow the facts to find the truth.´´-Time
From the author of The Bride Test comes a romance novel hailed as one of The Washington Post´s 50 Notable Works of Fiction in 2018 and one of Amazon´s Top 100 Books of 2018! ´´This is such a fun read and it´s also quite original and sexy and sensitive.´´-Roxane Gay, New York Times bestselling author ´´Hoang´s writing bursts from the page.´´-Buzzfeed A heartwarming and refreshing debut novel that proves one thing: there´s not enough data in the world to predict what will make your heart tick. Stella Lane thinks math is the only thing that unites the universe. She comes up with algorithms to predict customer purchases-a job that has given her more money than she knows what to do with, and way less experience in the dating department than the average thirty-year-old. It doesn´t help that Stella has Asperger´s and French kissing reminds her of a shark getting its teeth cleaned by pilot fish. Her conclusion: she needs lots of practice-with a professional. Which is why she hires escort Michael Phan. The Vietnamese and Swedish stunner can´t afford to turn down Stella´s offer, and agrees to help her check off all the boxes on her lesson plan-from foreplay to more-than-missionary position... Before long, Stella not only learns to appreciate his kisses, but crave all of the other things he´s making her feel. Their no-nonsense partnership starts making a strange kind of sense. And the pattern that emerges will convince Stella that love is the best kind of logic...
