The fox knows many things, the Greeks said, but the hedgehog knows one big thing. In his most comprehensive work Ronald Dworkin argues that value in all its forms is one big thing: that what truth is, life means, morality requires, and justice demands are different aspects of the same large question. He develops original theories on a great variety of issues very rarely considered in the same book: moral skepticism, literary, artistic, and historical interpretation, free will, ancient moral theory, being good and living well, liberty, equality, and law among many other topics. What we think about any one of these must stand up, eventually, to any argument we find compelling about the rest.
Skepticism in all its forms--philosophical, cynical, or post-modern--threatens that unity. The Galilean revolution once made the theological world of value safe for science. But the new republic gradually became a new empire: the modern philosophers inflated the methods of physics into a totalitarian theory of everything. They invaded and occupied all the honorifics--reality, truth, fact, ground, meaning, knowledge, and being--and dictated the terms on which other bodies of thought might aspire to them, and skepticism has been the inevitable result. We need a new revolution. We must make the world of science safe for value.

Описание: Internationally renowned lawyer and philosopher Ronald Dworkin addresses the crucially related acts of abortion and euthanasia in a brilliantly original book that examines their meaning in a nation that prizes both life and individual liberty. From Roe v. Wade to the legal battle over the death of Nancy Cruzan, no issues have opened greater rifts in American society than those of abortion and euthanasia. At the heart of Life's Dominion is Dworkin's inquest into why abortion and euthanasia provoke such controversy. Do these acts violate some fundamental "right to life"? Or are the objections against them based on the belief that human life is sacred? Combining incisive moral reasoning and close readings of indicidual court decisions with a majestic interpretation of the U.S. Constitution itself, Dworkin gives us a work that is absolutely essential for anyone who cares about the legal status of human life.
Edith Hahn Beer was an outspoken young law student living in Vienna when the Gestapo forced her first into a ghetto, and then into a labor camp. With the help of a Christian friend, she went underground, took on a new identity, and re-emerged in Munich as "Grete Denner." There she met Werner Vetter, a Nazi Party member who fell in love with her. Despite Edith's protests and even her eventual confession that she was Jewish, he married her and kept her identity a secret.
The Nazi Officer's Wife details the constant terror of being a Jew hidden living in Nazi Germany. Even while giving birth to her daughter, Beer refused all painkillers, afraid that in an altered state of mind she might reveal something of her past. Her memoir is an eloquent testament to one woman's extraordinary courage and will to survive. Edith Hahn Beer (1914 - 2009) was born in Vienna, Austria. She and Warner Vetter divorced in 1947, and she later lived in Netanya, Israel. Her daughter, Angela, lives in London and is believed to be the only Jew born in a Reich hospital in 1944. Susan Dworkin is a prolific novelist, playwright, and television writer. She has collaborated on projects that have received Peabody and Emmy awards and has been nominated for the National Book Award. Her writing has appeared in many publications, including Ms. Magazine and Ladies' Home Journal. "This extraordinary book is destined to become one of the best Holocaust memoirs available." -- Library Journal

"A perceptive and provocative work." --Los Angeles Times
"A stunning job of research, observation and reporting." --Larry Gelbart, co-writer of Tootsie and writer on TV's "M*A*S*H*"
"This fluid, marvelously detailed book goes a long way toward explaining why Tootsie has already achieved a reputation as a classic film comedy." --People
Making Tootsie is back, three decades after the creation of the blockbuster Hollywood motion picture that the American Film Institute rated as #2 on its list of the 100 Best Comedies of All Time (second only to Some Like it Hot). Playwright, author, and Ms. magazine contributing writer Susan Dworkin was granted unprecedented access to the film set, the cast, and the crew during the filming and through post-production of the 1982 classic, and her riveting, detailed chronicle offers a fascinating window into the art of movie making--as well as painting indelible portraits of the two main men who made Tootsie happen: director Sidney Pollack and star Dustin Hoffman. No movie buff, film historian, student, or fan will want to miss Making Tootsie.

Описание: The gripping story of how Bent Skovmand and others preserved the world’s wheat harvest.
In 1999, a terrifying new form of stem rust—spotted in Uganda and dubbed “UG99”—quickly turned robust golden fields into dark, tangled ruins. For decades plant scientists had bred wheat varieties with rust-resistant genes, but these genes did not work against UG99. Unchecked, UG99 could spread all over the world, including the United States. Breeders everywhere began searching wheat germplasm collections for sources of resistance. The largest collection was at the Center for Improvement of Maize and Wheat (CIMMYT ) in Mexico, developed by the brilliant Danish scientist Bent Skovmand. For three decades, Skovmand amassed, multiplied, and documented thousands of wheat varieties. He served as an advisor on wheat genetic resources to dozens of countries, and hunted for seeds that would contain the genes to protect the harvest from plagues like UG99 and the stresses created by global warming. I n an era when corporations and governments often jealously guarded breeding information, Skovmand fought to keep his seed bank a center for free, open scientific exchange. By telling the story of Skovmand’s work and that of his colleagues, "The Viking in the Wheat Field "sheds a welcome light on an agricultural sector—“plant genetic resources”—on which we are all crucially dependent.
