Dirac : Roman by Dietmar Dath ( Book )
6 editions published between 2006 and 2009 in German and Undetermined and held by 86 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The Soviet Union is gone, punk, retro chic, the RAF history of art, reason is a matter for investment advisors, only the old questions remain the same: How is life? How should we live? And who decides: science, religion, art, politics? David Dalek's friends - an artist, a computer programmer, a psychiatrist, a patient, a biochemist and a housewife - have the typical problems in their thirties, whose parents are still owed an authoritative answer. David, writer and journalist, as a day job, has one main problem: How does one describe a life? More specifically: How does one write a novel about a man who knew about the provisional nature of all the world and designs but the truth came as close as a human being can be? Dirac told of David's quest for the truth of Paul Dirac (1902-1984), the great unknown of modern physics. Before the eyes of the reader the story of this extraordinary scientist and human in form and develops a force that by proposing to transform the present and the world of fictional characters: a child, an exhibition, a grave stone, a book are practical answers to the Questions of everyday life, in the sea of signs, they form themselves into an allegory of life in modern times."--Cataloger translation of publisher's description

Sämmtliche Gedichte Roman by Dietmar Dath ( Book )
6 editions published between 2009 and 2011 in German and held by 78 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Adam Sladek is a successful poet, albeit with rather enigmatic work. Lured by big money and the prospect of a complete edition of his poems, he accepts a commission. He is ordered to make a seal to wake the sleeping gods and transform the human world as it was intended. In luxury and seclusion, Slade is presented only the best aesthetic products - films, photographs, books. Startled, notices multiple phenomenon. Is the young hunter he met a reincarnation of the famous daredevil aviatrix Amelia Earhart (as they seem to believe themselves) or an avatar of the goddess Artemis? The suspicion is growing that the commission is for a very different purpose and behind the contractor is a power that Slade is critical of."--Cataloger translation of publisher's description

"Claudia Starik is nineteen and suffers from the normal everyday life of a high school graduate: officious teachers, disheveled family relationships, love, fashion, the upcoming exams and the climate crisis.

In the fight against the perils of modern technology Claudia has to help him, and he helps her when it comes to the impositions of imperialism, the education crisis and all the concerns of life, where courage is needed. History knows, Constantine, does not happen, it is made, and he gives his granddaughter to the Abitur and an unusual journey: As a researcher and the two spies to break into a dangerous expedition to the vicinity of the magnetic North Pole, where the largest high-frequency antenna system in the world stands: HAARP, a secret military project to manipulate weather and global communication and the pride of American technocrats?"--Cataloger translation of publisher description

Der Implex sozialer Fortschritt: Geschichte und Idee by Dietmar Dath ( Book )
6 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in German and Undetermined and held by 48 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Morgen wird alles besser: An dieser Parole erkennt man seit der Aufklärung die Anhänger des sozialen Fortschritts, während die der Finsternis bellen, daß früher alles besser gewesen sei. Die einen setzen auf Wissenschaft und Technik, damit Freiheit, Wohlstand, Bildung und Schönheit sich mehren, die anderen auf Tradition, Blut, Boden, Familie, Vaterland und sonstigen Urväterhausrat, damit alles nicht noch schlimmer werde, als es ohnehin schon ist. Dieses Buch behauptet, daß jede Zeit, jede Handlung, jeder Gedanke tatsächlich mehr Möglichkeiten der Selbstverbesserung enthält, als man auf den ersten Blick sieht. Den inneren Zusammenhang dieser verborgenen Freiheitsgrade nennt das Buch "Implex". Das Wort bezeichnet ein Modell, mit dem man erklären kann, wie Fortschritt in den Mühen tatsächlicher Menschen verwirklicht wird. Es macht verständlich, warum nur Epochen, die sich bestimmte Irrtümer erlauben, auch bestimmte Wahrheiten finden können, und es zeigt, daß die Aufklärung der Gegenwart Werkzeuge der Emanzipation vererbt hat, von denen sie selbst gar nichts wußte. Es verdeutlicht schließlich, was an dieser Lehre und anderen praktischen und theoretischen Hinterlassenschaften der historischen Linken wertvoll bleibt, bis heute. Auf dem Weg zu diesen Resultaten unternimmt das Buch Reisen durch realistische Forschung und phantastische Kunst, stellt bekannte und unbekannte Revolutionen, Kriege, Formen des Unrechts und des Widerstands dar und öffnet die Sicht auf Zeitabschnitte, von denen gar nicht so leicht zu entscheiden ist, ob sie Zukunft sind, Vergangenheit oder Gegenwart

Was wäre, wenn ... eines Tages alles anders wäre? Die Menschen der Zukunft haben sich weit von dem entfernt, was wir als "Mensch" kennen und doch haben sie immer noch die alten Bedürfnisse, träumen die alten Träume, kämpfen die alten Kämpfe. Bis sich eines Tages die "Pulsarnacht" ankündigt, ein astronomisches Ereignis, nach dem sprichwörtlich nichts mehr so sein wird, wie es einmal war. Und wer das Geheimnis dieser Pulsarnacht kennt, kann die letzten Rätsel des Universums lüften

Am blinden Ufer : eine Geschichte vom Strand und aus den Schnitten : Roman by Dietmar Dath ( Book )
4 editions published between 2000 and 2010 in German and held by 39 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Am blinden Ufer ist ein Science Fiction-Roman über Meeresbiologie, Liebe, Topologie, Nutztierhaltung und Militarismus. Das Personal: Heldinnen und Feiglinge, Tote und Verletzte, Gelehrte und Verliebte, Menschen um die Dreissig und alte Haudegen. Die Welt des Romans unterscheidet sich von der, die man kennt, dadurch, dass sie aus denselben Grundtatsachen, aber unter Weglassung des Unwesentlichen und unter mehrfacher Drehung entlang der Zeitachse konstruiert ist. Das Buch greift auf die "speculative fiction' der 70er Jahre des 20. Jhs. (Ellison, Delany, Moorcock) ebenso zurück wie auf Bilder und Chiffren des Horror-Stammvaters H.P. Lovecraft, die mathematischen Axiome der Geometrodynamik ergänzen die weniger exakten Ungleichungen der Sehnsucht, ein Ehebruch findet statt, das Meer ist eine konkrete Abstraktion und erschlägt am Ende ein paar sinnliche Gewissheiten, ohne die moderne Menschen angeblich nicht leben können. Ach ja: Witze, offene und eher versteckte, gibt es auch"--Publisher's website, March 14, 2013
