The Mahler Companion consists of a collection of original essays on Mahler written especially for the occasion by Mahler specialists from around the world. It addresses all parts of his life and work-- symphonies, songs and song-cycles (each of which is discussed individually), his conducting activities, compositional habits, and aesthetic development--and sets these within the cultural and political context of his time. In addition, it responds to the global spread of this remarkable composer's music, and an almost universal fascination with it, by attempting to give an account of the reception of Mahler's music in many of the countries in which it eventually came to flourish, eg. Holland, France, Japan, Russia, England, and the United States. This particular series of chapters reveals that the 'Mahler Phenomenon' earned its description principally in the years after the Second World War, but also that the Mahler revival was already well under way pre-war, perhaps especially in England and the States, and most surprisingly of all, Japan. The selection of contributors, who between them cover all Mahler's musical output, shows that here too this volume significantly crosses national boundaries. The very diverse approaches, analyses and commentaries, amply illustrated with music examples, are evidence of the uniquely rich and complex character of a music that spans more than one culture and more than one century. The volumes includes the most significant and up-to-date Mahler research and debate, and illumines some hitherto unexplored areas of Mahler's life eg. his visit to London in 1892, his sculptor daughter, Anna, and the hall in which the Seventh Symphony was first performed in Prague in 1908. It has often been claimed that Mahler, born in 1860, was in fact a prophet of much that was to come in the 20th century. His later works undeniably anticipate, often with dazzling virtuosity, many of the principal techniques and aesthetics of the new century, only the first decade of which he lived to see. Small wonder that among his earliest admirers was a collective of some of the most important and innovative composers of our time, Schoenberg, Berg, and Webern. Their successors (Copland, Shostakovich, and Britten, to name a few) were to range across contrasting cultures and national frontiers. Drawing on the best resources and the most up-to-date information about the composer, this volume fulfils the need in Mahler literature for a genuinely comprehensive guide to the composer and will be the authoritative guide for Mahler enthusiasts for years to come.

This Book Evolved Itself Out Of 25 Years Of Teaching Experience In The Subject, Moulding Different Important Aspects Into A One Year Course Of Mechanism And Machine Theory. Basic Principles Of Analysis And Synthesis Of Mechanisms With Lower And Higher Pairs Are Both Included Considering Both Kinematic And Kinetic Aspects. A Chapter On Hydrodynamic Lubrication Is Included In The Book. Balancing Machines Are Introduced In The Chapter On Balancing Of Rotating Parts. Mechanisms Used In Control Namely, Governors And Gyroscopes Are Discussed In A Separate Chapter. The Book Also Contains A Chapter On Principles Of Theory Of Vibrations As Applied To Machines. A Solution Manual To Problems Given At The End Of Each Chapter Is Also Available. Principles Of Balancing Of Linkages Is Also Included. Thus The Book Takes Into Account All Aspects Of Mechanism And Machine Theory To The Reader Studying A First Course On This Subject.This Book Is Intended For Undergraduate Students Taking Basic Courses In Mechanism And Machine Theory. The Practice Of Machines Has Been Initially To Use Inventions And Establishment Of Basic Working Models And Then Generalising The Theory And Hence The Earlier Books Emphasises These Principles. With The Advancement Of Theory Particularly In The Last Two Decades, New Books Come Up With A Stress On Specific Topics.The Book Retains All The Aspects Of Mechanism And Machine Theory In A Unified Manner As Far As Possible For A Two Semester Course At Undergraduate Level Without Recourse To Following Several Text Books And Derive The Benefits Of Basic Principles Recently Advanced In Mechanism And Machine Theory.

The Theory of Machines is an important subject to mechanical engineering students of both bachelor's and diploma level. One has to understand the basics of kinematics and dynamics of machines before designing and manufacturing any component. The subject material is presented in such a way that an average student can easily understand the concepts. The graphical methods of analysis are given preference over analytical wherever possible though they lack in accuracy but can be performed quickly. Particular care has been taken to draw diagrams to scale correctly. The results are compared with analytical ones wherever possible. Common doubts that the students have while preparing for the examinations or new faculty in the classrooms have been kept in mind. The same examples are being explained wherever different methods are there instead of giving different examples. The effect of the different parameters on the end result also is shown in the same problem, for example, in cams and governors etc. In the exercises at the end of each chapter, questions from the question papers of various universities are given under three categories ? short answer questions, problems, multiple choice questions. Some of the questions may be seen repeated. One should note that they are being given repeatedly and are important for examination purpose.

Learning Among Neanderthals and Palaeolithic Modern Humans

This book is based on the research performed for the Replacement of Neanderthals by Modern Humans Project. The central issue of the project is the investigation of possible differences between the two populations in cognitive ability for learning. The project aims to evaluate a unique working hypothesis, coined as the learning hypothesis, which postulates that differences in learning eventually resulted in the replacement of those populations. The book deals with relevant archaeological records to understand the learning behaviours of Neanderthals and modern humans. Learning behaviours are conditioned by numerous factors including not only cognitive ability but also cultural traditions, social structure, population size, and life history. The book addresses the issues in two parts, comparing learning behaviours in terms of cognitive ability and social environments, respectively. Collectively, it provides new insights into the behavioural characteristics of Neanderthals and modern humans from a previously overlooked perspective. Furthermore, it highlights the significance of understanding learning in prehistory, the driving force for any development of culture and technology among human society.

Analyses Concerning Passive and Active Synthesis

Coming from what is arguably the most productive period of Husserl's life, this volume offers the reader a first translation into English of Husserl's renowned lectures on `passive synthesis', given between 1920 and 1926. These lectures are the first extensive application of Husserl's newly developed genetic phenomenology to perceptual experience and to the way in which it is connected to judgments and cognition. They include an historical reflection on the crisis of contemporary thought and human spirit, provide an archaeology of experience by questioning back into sedimented layers of meaning, and sketch the genealogy of judgment in `active synthesis'. Drawing upon everyday events and personal experiences, the Analyses are marked by a patient attention to the subtle emergence of sense in our lives. By advancing a phenomenology of association that treats such phenomena as bodily kinaesthesis, temporal genesis, habit, affection, attention, motivation, and the unconscious, Husserl explores the cognitive dimensions of the body in its affectively significant surroundings. An elaboration of these diverse modes of evidence and their modalizations (transcendental aesthetic), allows Husserl to trace the origin of truth up to judicative achievements (transcendental logic). Joined by several of Husserl's essays on static and genetic method, the Analyses afford a richness of description unequalled by the majority of Husserl's works available to English readers. Students of phenomenology and of Husserl's thought will find this an indispensable work.

Being-in-time to the music from the ground up is a work in phenomenology, where this term is broadly defined, comprehending Plato, Heidegger, Hegel, and Marx. The most direct referent is Hegel, together with the theoretical revolution that he initiated with Phenomenology of Mind. This text’s more general purpose is to set the tone for a 21st communism based upon the idea of dancing with death, assuming full responsibility for one’s mortality, and abandoning the self to love as the meaning of existence. This dance is choreographed through my conversations with the above mentioned writers. In conversing with them I aim to displace (if not usurp) them from the throne of honour which is nothing more than the authority borrowed from me. By this I do not intend to deny completely their ‘other to me’ character. However, they exist or even ‘figure’ for me, both in the sense of of ‘count,’ having importance, as those that I read, and by which I read myself. They have borrowed my authority, namely, my own potential to be an author. So ‘reading them is to re-assume that borrowed authority. The life of the reader, to paraphrase Barthes, begins with the death of the author.
