The recipes in each chapter are then arranged on a continuum, the transition from one recipe to another generally amounting to a tw Lateral Cooking - Niki Segnit od authora Niki Segnit a nakladatelství za skvělé ceny na e-shopu Martinus...

The Address of the Eye - Vivian Sobchack

Cinema is a sensuous object, but in our presence it becomes also a sensing, sensual, sense-making subject. Thus argues Vivian Sobchack as she challenges basic assumptions of current film theory that reduce film to an object of vision and the spectator to a victim of a deterministic cinematic apparatus. Maintaining that these premises ignore the material and cultural-historical situations of both the spectator and the film, the author makes the radical proposal that the cinematic experience depends on two "viewers" viewing: the spectator and the film, each existing as both subject and object of The Address of the Eye - Vivian Sobchack od authora Vivian Sobchack a nakladatelství za skvělé ce...

Legal Theory - Petr Osina

The aim of the textbook is to provide students with a guide to the basic theoretical questions of law. It is up to legal theory to reveal common principles and traditions beyond local particularisms.

But practice without theory is blind while theory without practice is useless.

The Demon-Haunted World : Science as a Candle in the Dark - Carl Sagan

How can we make intelligent decisions about our increasingly technology-driven lives if we don't understand the difference between the myths of pseudoscience and the testable hypotheses of science? Pulitzer Prize-winning author and distinguished astronomer Carl Sagan argues that scientific thinking is critical not only to the pursuit of truth but to the very well-being of our democratic institutions.Casting a wide net through history and culture, Sagan examines and authoritatively debunks such celebrated fallacies of the past as witchcraft, faith healing, demons, and UFOs. And yet, disturbingly, in today's so-called information age, pseudoscience is burgeoning with stories of alien abductio...
