Eine Entdeckungsreise zu den großen Ideen und weltbewegenden Konzepten der Menschheitsgeschichte
Die Goldene Regel
50 Schlüsselideen der Menschheit ist der perfekte Führer zu den wichtigsten Gedanken und Konzepten, die Menschen im Laufe der Jahrhunderte entwickelt haben. An genialen Ideen hat es nie gemangelt. Viele geistreiche Überlegungen sprühen helle Funken, nur um rasch wieder zu verglimmen, weil sie sich als hohl und wenig nachhaltig erweisen. Wahrhaft große Ideen aber brennen dauerhaft: Sie setzen sich langfristig durch und in den Köpfen der Menschen fest, weil sie tief durchdacht sind, im idealen second aufkeimen, von visionärer Kühnheit zeugen oder auch verheerende Wirkung entfalten. Der vorliegende Band zeichnet einen weiten Bogen weltbewegender Ideen – von zutiefst schönen und wundersamen bis zu zweifelhaften und abscheulichen.
In 50 leicht verständlichen Essays führt uns Ben Dupré an die einflussreichsten Konzepte und Ideen in Politik, Philosophie, faith, Wirtschaft, Naturwissenschaft und Kunst heran. Einige davon erscheinen unanfechtbar (Freiheit, Vernunft), andere hochkomplex (Urknall, Chaos), wieder andere mysteriös (Schicksal, Surrealismus) oder nachgerade gefährlich und verachtenswert (Faschismus, Rassismus). Allen gemeinsam ist, dass sie in der Geschichte der Menschheit eine bedeutsame Rolle gespielt und die menschliche Kultur tief geprägt haben.

This day on nearly each table in each place of work sits a working laptop or computer. 80 years in the past, computers have been outfitted with a nonelectronic information processing computing device: a card dossier. In Paper Machines, Markus Krajewski strains the evolution of this proto-computer of rearrangeable elements (file playing cards) that grew to become ubiquitous in places of work among the area wars. the tale starts off with Konrad Gessner, a sixteenth-century Swiss polymath who defined a brand new approach to processing information: to chop up a sheet of handwritten notes into slips of paper, with one truth or subject consistent with slip, and manage as wanted. within the past due eighteenth century, the cardboard catalog turned the librarian's resolution to the specter of details overload. Then, on the flip of the 20 th century, company followed the know-how of the cardboard catalog as a bookkeeping instrument. Krajewski explores this conceptual improvement and casts the cardboard dossier as a "universal paper desktop" that accomplishes the elemental operations of Turing's common discrete computing device: storing, processing, and moving info. In telling his tale, Krajewski takes the reader on a couple of illuminating detours, telling us, for instance, that the cardboard catalog and the numbered road tackle emerged whilst within the related urban (Vienna), and that Harvard University's home-grown cataloging process grew out of a librarian's laziness; and that Melvil Dewey (originator of the Dewey Decimal approach) helped result in the know-how move of card documents to company.
