The History of Approximation Theory: From Euler to Bernstein
The History of Approximation Theory: From Euler to Bernstein

The problem of approximating a given quantity is one of the oldest challenges faced by mathematicians. Its increasing importance in contemporary mathematics has created an entirely new area known as Approximation Theory. The modern theory was initially developed along two divergent schools of thought: the Eastern or Russian group, employing...

Persons, Souls and Death: A Philosophical Investigation of an Afterlife
Persons, Souls and Death: A Philosophical Investigation of an Afterlife

Awareness of mortality is the price of intelligent consciousness. This book argues that a person is essentially an immaterial subject of conscious states who, though intimately linked by causal ties to the body, is nevertheless distinct from it. The book also examines apparently paranormal occurrences supporting the belief that some persons...

Confessions
"Williams's masterful translation satisfies (at last!) a long-standing need. There are lots of good translations of Augustine's great work, but until now we have been forced to choose between those that strive to replicate in English something of the majesty and beauty of Augustine's Latin style and those that opt instead...
The Philosophy of Gottlob Frege
The Philosophy of Gottlob Frege
Begriffsschrift was, as the subtitle announced, a formula language of pure
thought modeled upon the language of arithmetic. Frege borrowed the notation
for functions from arithmetic, and enlarged the realm of applicability
of a function beyond the domain of numbers. Then, supplanting the
subject/predicate division, which was

Enchanting Robots: Intimacy, Magic, and Technology (Social and Cultural Studies of Robots and AI)
Enchanting Robots: Intimacy, Magic, and Technology (Social and Cultural Studies of Robots and AI)
This book argues that robots are enchanting humans (as potential intimate partners), because humans are enchanting robots (by performing magical thinking), and that these processes are a part of a significant re-enchantment of the “modern” world. As a foundation, the author examines arguments for and against intimate relationships...
Science in the Age of Computer Simulation
Science in the Age of Computer Simulation

Computer simulation was first pioneered as a scientific tool in meteorology and nuclear physics in the period following World War II, but it has grown rapidly to become indispensible in a wide variety of scientific disciplines, including astrophysics, high-energy physics, climate science, engineering, ecology, and economics. Digital computer...

The Bloomsbury Companion to Socrates (Bloomsbury Companions)
The Bloomsbury Companion to Socrates (Bloomsbury Companions)

Socrates, the largely enigmatic Greek thinker, is universally considered to have laid the foundations of western philosophy. His philosophy, available to us through the early dialogues of Plato and the writings of his contemporaries, has had a remarkably enduring influence on virtually every area of philosophical enterprise .

How To Be a Graphic Designer Without Losing Your Soul
How To Be a Graphic Designer Without Losing Your Soul
Designers are quick to tell us about their sources of inspiration, but they are much less willing to reveal such critical matters as how to find work, how much they charge, and what to do when a client rejects three weeks of work and refuses to pay the bill. How to be a graphic designer without losing your soul addresses the concerns of...
Analysis and Synthesis of Logics: How to Cut and Paste Reasoning Systems (Applied Logic Series)
Analysis and Synthesis of Logics: How to Cut and Paste Reasoning Systems (Applied Logic Series)
Starting with simple examples showing the relevance of cutting and pasting logics, the monograph develops a mathematical theory of combining and decomposing logics, ranging from propositional and first-order based logics to higher-order based logics as well as to non-truth functional logics. The theory covers mechanisms for combining semantic...
The Philosophy of Software: Code and Mediation in the Digital Age
The Philosophy of Software: Code and Mediation in the Digital Age
Writing remains to me an unusual practice that transforms my experience of the world whilst under the spell of writing. This book has had a particularly intensive birth, written as it is in the middle of the academic year and with everyday life swirling around it with all the attendant distractions. It has emerged from a number of related...
Discrete or Continuous?: The Quest for Fundamental Length in Modern Physics
Discrete or Continuous?: The Quest for Fundamental Length in Modern Physics

The idea of infinity plays a crucial role in our understanding of the universe, with the infinite spacetime continuum perhaps the best-known example - but is spacetime really continuous? Throughout the history of science, many have felt that the continuum model is an unphysical idealization, and that spacetime should be thought of as...
