The Poetry of Knowledge and the 'Two Cultures'

The Poetry of Knowledge and the 'Two Cultures' By John G. Fitch
English | PDF,EPUB | 2018 | 167 Pages | ISBN : 3319895591 | 2.40 MB

This book argues that poetry is compatible with systematic knowledge including science, and indeed inherent in it; it also discusses particular poems that engage with such knowledge, including those of Lucretius, Vergil, and Vita Sackville-West. The book argues that there are substantial similarities between knowledge-making and poetry-making, for example in their being shaped by language, including metaphor, and in their seeking unity in the world, under the impulse of eros and pleasure.

Ethics and Organizations: Understanding Business Ethics as a Learning Process

Ethics and Organizations: Understanding Business Ethics as a Learning Process By Josep M. Lozano
English | PDF | 2000 | 194 Pages | ISBN : 1402003625 | 22.73 MB

This book is a study of the core issues in the field of business ethics from both an historical and a systematic standpoint. It analyzes corporate social responsibility, stakeholders, ethical codes, corporate cultures, and other issues. But the analysis takes place within a framework specially designed by the author in order to integrate the various dimensions of present-day business ethics. This integration is linked to an interpretation of business ethics as an organizational learning process in the context of the social and cultural changes caused by the emergence of a knowledge society. This approach makes it possible to adopt a focus and language, which can simultaneously take into account ethical concerns and corporate and organizational development. A previous version of the book (written in Catalan) was awarded the 1998 Joan Sardà Dexeus prize for best book on corporate economics by the Catalan Association of Economists.
Preventing Fatal Incidents in School and Youth Group Camps and Excursions: Understanding the Unthinkable

Preventing Fatal Incidents in School and Youth Group Camps and Excursions: Understanding the Unthinkable By Andrew Brookes
English | PDF,EPUB | 2018 | 258 Pages | ISBN : 3319898809 | 3.29 MB

This book approaches the prevention of fatal incidents in outdoor education and related fields through detailed study of past tragedies. Although safety in many fields is built on accumulated lessons from past incidents, tragedies on school or youth group camps and excursions are so infrequent and so widely scattered that knowledge from previous incidents can elude those who would benefit. Nevertheless, the emergence of unlearned lessons from the past weighs heavily when those affected by a tragedy judge whether an incident should have been prevented.

Complex Networks in Software, Knowledge, and Social Systems

Complex Networks in Software, Knowledge, and Social Systems By Miloš Savić
English | PDF,EPUB | 2018(2019 Editiion) | 331 Pages | ISBN : 3319911945 | 14.06 MB

This book provides a comprehensive review of complex networks from three different domains, presents novel methods for analyzing them, and highlights applications with accompanying case studies. Special emphasis is placed on three specific kinds of complex networks of high technological and scientific importance: software networks extracted from the source code of computer programs, ontology networks describing semantic web ontologies, and co-authorship networks reflecting collaboration in science. The book is primarily intended for researchers, teachers and students interested in complex networks and network data analysis. However, it will also be valuable for researchers dealing with software engineering, ontology engineering and scientometrics, as it demonstrates how complex network analysis can be used to address important research issues in these three disciplines.
