Despite being located on the extreme eastern boundary of Europe, and having been frequently conquered by invading people from Asia, including Arabs, Turks, Persians, Mongols, and more recently Russians, Georgians still regard themselves very much as Europeans and it is to becoming a future member state of the EU that the majority of the people now aspire. As for the traditional folk-tales from the region, one of their main characteristics is that they are packed with action: Whilst a written, “literary” novel or short story might devote paragraphs to descriptions of people or places, these tales usually settle for an adjective or two; “a thick impassable forest”, “a handsome stately man”, or a formula such as“not-seen-beneath-the-sun beauty”. Many of the heroes and heroines do not even have names (Hunt, 1999, p.8) Safely cocooned, or so we like to kid ourselves, in our sanitised western urban environment, we tend to take the elements for granted. However, tales from a time when the Earth was new help to jolt us out of our daily lethargy, as do the stories in this collection – a number of which have never been translated from Georgian direct into English before.

This is chapter two to ten of a three-part series discussing the astrophysical cause of mental and biological conditions such as schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, MPD syndrome, autism, homosexuality, personality, gender, "race" and so forth. It also analyzes the correspondence of these conditions to humanity in general and concludes that all the activities of people stem from astrophysically-caused gender elements that conduct people's lives from their socio-physiological behavior, to their security, spiritual and political needs. It also observes the convergence of these elements that lead to relative peace.

From Carolyn Walkers Forward to WATER EARTH FIRE AIR: Ed Van Slambroucks book of poetry, WATER EARTH FIRE AIR, is one mans wise, sentimental, and sometimes playful meditation on Gods love and the experience of His creation. Earnest as a childs devotional, heartfelt as a fathers prayer, and occasionally touched with a tongue-in-cheek pun, Van Slambroucks poetry collection, his fourth in an ambitious series fueled by a prolific writing schedule, explores Gods bounty as he lived it in eight decades of life. Using the language of imagery and style (informed by Van Slambroucks gift for music) the collection takes the reader by the spirit and coaxes him through such diverse experiences as what it means to adore a woman, raise children, conquer illness, appreciate a friend, play the saxophone, feel the wind and worship at the foot of the Cross. Acclimations about E. V. Van Slambroucks other books: Opus in Chromatic Words (2010): Eds ever-present saxophone permeates a life celebrated in word-images, framed with music and poetry. James F. Ahearn, Poet and President of the Poetry Society of Michigan. Heart Music (2008): Poetry is the perfect form for his thoughts because it combines sound and image in a way that is as close to song as one can get, while still using language. Margo LaGattuta, Poet and Teacher. OnSpring: A Family of Poems (2005): thanks for sending me your touching chapbook, OnSpring, whose pages are heartfelt, moving, linguistically admirable and playful. Peter Meinke, Poet and Professor.

We all want to understand the world around us, and the ancient Greeks were the first to try and do so in a way we can properly call scientific. Their thought and writings laid the essential foundations for the revivals of science in medieval Baghdad and renaissance Europe. Now their work is accessible to all, with this invaluable introduction to c.100 scientific authors active from 320 BCE to 230 CE. The book begins with an outline of a new socio-political model for the development and decline of Greek science, followed by eleven chapters that cover the main disciplines: * the science which the Greeks saw as fundamental - mathematics * astronomy * astrology and geography * mechanics * optics and pneumatics * the non-mathematical sciences of alchemy, biology, medicine and 'psychology'. Each chapter contains an accessible introduction on the origins and development of the topic in question, and all the authors are set in context with brief biographies.

The author attempts to chart Aristotle's philosophical progress, using the techniques of both philology and philosophical analysis. His aim is to see where Aristotle came from philosophically and what impelled him to develop his ideas in particular directions. The first chapter is an overall account of Aristotle's philosophical activities as his life progressed; the remaining sections discuss in detail the development of such key themes as the possibility of metaphysics, activity and potentiality, categories, mind, substance, God, human nature and happiness, and the nature of society, including the proper role for women and the phenomenon of slavery.

This volume provides an introduction to Borelli’s theory on the movement of animals and describes his theory and scientific experiments relating to the natural movements of bodies in a fluid environment. It describes in great detail why and how bodies which present with different magnitudes, weights and shapes move at a greater or a smaller velocity in certain proportion in the fluid environment. Originally published in Italian in 1667, then translated into Latin in 1686, the text of this volume has now been translated into English, making the text accessible to a wide readership. This volume is the second of two volumes that contain the Introduction and physical-mathematical illustrations necessary to understand Giovanni Alfonso Borelli’s work On the Movement of Animals, the founding text of seventeenth century biomechanics. The first volume, entitled On the Force of Percussion, demonstrates the nature of the energy of percussion, its causes, properties and effects.
