Events

https://www.ebooks.com/cj.asp?IID=209631657&fc=CA&cjsku=209631657...
Originally published in 1986. The theory of events presented is one that construes events to be concrete particulars; and it embodies an attempt to take seriously the idea that events are the changes that objects undergo when they change. The theory is about what an event really is, about when events are identical, about what properties events have essentially, and about what relations events bear to entities of other kinds. In addition, this book contains an account of what philosophers are up to when they provide reasons for thinking that objects belonging to metaphysically interesting kinds exist. It also gives an account of the role of criteria of identity (eg. identical sets must have the same members) in such reasons, and an account of what criteria of identity must be like in order for them to be able to play such a role.

Events, Dear Boy, Events

www.ebooks.com/cj.asp?IID=1035014&cjsku=1035014...
Ruth Winstone retells Britain's history through the great diarists of the last century, drawing back the curtain on the lives of political classes, their doubts, ambitions, and emotions. She moves deftly among those in the thick of it, showing the elation, anger, doubts, jealousy, joys and fears of people as they record their own and the nation's triumphs and disasters. To this potent mix she adds the mordant perceptions of observers like Virginia Woolf, Cecil Beaton, Peter Hall and Roy Strong, and the vivid records of everyday life found in the diaries of otherwise ordinary men and women. Events, Dear Boy, Events reveals Britain's recent past in the words of the actors who were shaping the events of the day. This is living real-time history.

X-Events

www.ebooks.com/cj.asp?IID=828070&cjsku=828070...
I am an assiduous reader of John Casti's books. He is a real scientific intellectual. Nassim Nicholas Taleb, New York Times bestselling author of Fooled by Randomness Casti is at his best in presenting difficult philosophical ideas enthusiastically and lucidly, and in presenting everyday examples to illustrate them. New York Times Book Review In his highly provocative and grippingly readable book, X-Events , author John Casti brilliantly argues that today's advanced, overly complex societies have grown highly vulnerable to extreme events that will ultimately topple civilization like a house of cards. Like Nassim Taleb's The Black Swan meets Jared Diamond's Collapse , Casti's book provides a much-needed wake-up callsounding a fascinating and frightening warning about civilized society's inability to recover from a global catastrophe demonstrating how humankind could be blasted back into the Stone Age by a meteor strike, nuclear apocalypse, worldwide contagion, or any number of unforeseeable X-Events .
