Описание: This reader collects and introduces important work in linguistics, computer science, artificial intelligence, and computational linguistics on the use of linguistic devices in natural languages to situate events in time: whether they are past, present, or future; whether they are real or hypothetical; when an event might have occurred, and how long it could have lasted. Clear, self-contained editorial introductions to each area provide the necessary technical background for the non-specialist, explaining the underlying connections across disciplines.
Описание: Born in Scotland, James Fergusson (1808–86) spent ten years as an indigo planter in India before embarking upon a second career as an architectural historian. Despite his lack of formal training, he became an expert in the field of Indian architecture, publishing Cave Temples of India and a History of Indian and Eastern Architecture, as well as The Holy Sepulchre and the Temple at Jerusalem, all reissued in the Cambridge Library Collection. In this illustrated work of 1849, he considers beauty in art, expressed chiefly by the architectural styles of different civilisations, beginning with ancient Egypt, and finishing with ancient Rome. (This book is named 'Part the First', but no subsequent volumes were written.) The first section is theoretical, tracing the intellectual development of man and his aesthetic sense, while the second considers the surviving evidence of the ideas of beauty held in the ancient world.

Many readings first appeared outside the mainstream Western academy, and offer diverse theoretical lenses on culture and communication practices in the world community.The Global Intercultural Communication Reader is edited by Molefi Kete Asante, one of the founders of the intercultural communication field, and international scholars Yoshitaka Miike (Japan) and Jing Yin (China). Organized into five themed sections for easy classroom use, The Global Intercultural Communication Reader includes a detailed bibliography that will be a crucial resource for today?s students of intercultural communication.

Описание: Originally published in 1920, this book provides a concise discussion of aesthetic evolution, putting forward the view that the concept of beauty holds a position of fundamental importance in the constitution of reality. Systematic exposition of the topic is avoided in favour of a more nuanced account, in which aesthetic expression is linked to the Christian idea of God, on one hand, and the development of the human soul, on the other. An introduction and an appendix on 'Art Forms in Development' are also included. This book will be of value to anyone with an interest in aesthetic theory and theology.
