A more holistic and natural way of thinking about faith In his previous book, Christ of the Celts, J. Philip Newell emphasized the Celtic view of the oneness of creation and humanity as expressed through Christ. In that poetic treatment of the wisdom of Celtic spirituality, Newell pointed the way to a more peaceful, harmonious, integrated Christianity. A New Harmony takes the next step forward in emphasizing the need to overcome divisions and find common ground and to reclaim the best of ancient Christian spirituality and a more holistic, natural way of thinking about faith. Offers a view of spirituality rooted in ancient insights that includes and extends beyond Christianity Presents the case for the need for "a new harmony" that is both mystical and relational The author J. Philip Newell is a well-known expert on Celtic Christianity and the author of the acclaimed Listening for the Heartbeat of God.

Maclure of New Harmony follows the twists and turns of William Maclure's intriguing life. A native Scotsman, Maclure (1763--1840) became a merchant, made a fortune, and retired in his early thirties. Then his life became interesting. Fascinated by the study of geology, Maclure did fieldwork throughout Europe before traveling to the United States, where he completed the first geological survey of his adopted nation and published a detailed, color geological map -- one reason he is known as the Father of American Geology. Maclure's travels sharpened his convictions about social justice and led him to a life of social radicalism. He founded progressive schools to educate the children of the working classes and, in 1820, he joined forces with Robert Owen to found New Harmony -- the utopian community in Indiana. Ever restless, Maclure later moved to Mexico, where he watched his hopes for the new republic founder.

New Harmony Then and Now is a photographic and historic celebration of two of America's great Utopian communities located in New Harmony, Indiana. The Harmonists, started by George Rapp, labored to provide physical, intellectual, and spiritual wealth for its members. Ten years later, the Owenites, founded by Robert Owen and his partner William Maclure, settled there, intent on improving humanity through innovations in social theory, educational systems, and discoveries in natural science. Though Owen's communal experiment would not endure, a new social frontier prospered. Today, New Harmony remains a haven of promise, a village that honors its progressive heart. Intellectuals as well as artisans are drawn to this place of science and spirit.--Publisher website.

Das gegenwärtige Stadtbild von New Harmony, Indiana, ist für einen entlegenen, nicht einmal 900 Einwohner zählenden Ort bemerkenswert. Besonders das von Richard Meier entworfene Besucherzentrum, die Roofless Church und das Harmonist Labyrinth stechen ins Auge. Die Erinnerung an die ersten Siedler, die Harmony Society und Robert Owens Gesellschaftsexperiment (1814-1827), ist allgegenwärtig. Geleitet von der Frage nach dem Erbe der zwei sogenannten "intentionalen Gemeinschaften" untersucht diese Lokalstudie auf einer vielseitigen Quellenbasis New Harmonys demographische, wirtschaftliche, politische und kulturelle Entwicklung. New Harmonys Erfolgsgeschichte als Kleinstadt kann nicht allein mit den bekannten städtischen Wachstumsfaktoren erklärt werden. New Harmony erhielt aufgrund der Anwesenheit zweier ideengeschichtlich in Europa verwurzelter, in den USA dann bewusst formierter Gemeinschaften einzigartige Entfaltungschancen, die dem Ort zu einem mittlerweile über 200-jährigen Bestehen verhalfen.

For nearly seven decades, Jane Blaffer Owen was the driving force behind the restoration and revitalization of the town of New Harmony, Indiana. In this delightful memoir, Blaffer Owen describes the transformational effect the town had on her life. An oil heiress from Houston, she met and married Kenneth Dale Owen, great-great-grandson of Robert Owen, founder of a communal society in New Harmony. When she visited the then dilapidated town with her husband in 1941, it was love at first sight, and the story of her life and the life of the town became intertwined. Her engaging account of her journey to renew the town provides glimpses into New Harmony’s past and all of its citizens—scientists, educators, and naturalists—whose influence spread far beyond the town limits. And there are fascinating stories of the artists, architects, and theologians who became part of Blaffer Owen’s life at New Harmony, where, she says, "My roots could sink deeply and spread."

New Harmony is a town like no other. A community that began almost two hundred years ahead of its time, New Harmony was a spiritual sanctuary that later became a haven for international scientists, scholars, and educators who sought equality in communal living. It was impossible for George Rapp to realize the events he would set into motion when he purchased 20,000 acres of land on the Wabash River in 1814 and subsequently sold it to social reformer Robert Owen ten years later. This simple community came to have an immense impact on our country’s art and architecture, public education system, women’s suffrage movement, Midwestern industrial development, and more. This book contains over 150 historic images produced by two 19th-century New Harmony photographers—Homer Fauntleroy and William Frederick Lichtenberger. These photographs show historic buildings of New Harmony, many of which have been razed over the years. They also demonstrate the importance of the Wabash River and its influence on settlement and commerce. The people of the community are captured at work and at play, and the reader is allowed a look at the downtown business district of the past and the farms surrounding it.

Music-Inspired Harmony Search Algorithm

Theory and Applications

Calculus has been used in solving many scientific and engineering problems. For optimization problems, however, the differential calculus technique sometimes has a drawback when the objective function is step-wise, discontinuous, or multi-modal, or when decision variables are discrete rather than continuous. Thus, researchers have recently turned their interests into metaheuristic algorithms that have been inspired by natural phenomena such as evolution, animal behavior, or metallic annealing. This book especially focuses on a music-inspired metaheuristic algorithm, harmony search. Interestingly, there exists an analogy between music and optimization: each musical instrument corresponds to each decision variable; musical note corresponds to variable value; and harmony corresponds to solution vector. Just like musicians in Jazz improvisation play notes randomly or based on experiences in order to find fantastic harmony, variables in the harmony search algorithm have random values or previously-memorized good values in order to find optimal solution.
