Sound and light : La Monte Young, Marian Zazeela( Book )

2 editions published between 1996 and 2009 in English and held by 267 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La Monte Young and Marian Zazeela have been pursuing their art for more than three decades. Together, they have created large-scale works for light and sound of many hours' duration - full of slow-moving microtonal sounds bathed in magenta hues and shadows - that have influenced styles as diverse as the Velvet Underground and Minimalism. Yet many people outside the experimental circles in music and art are unfamiliar with their work. This issue of the Bucknell Review is the first full-length book on their work. It introduces Young and Zazeela to those unfamiliar with them, as well as providing the more acquainted reader with new and useful insights and analyses of the fundamental issues in their life and work. The book explores the recurring themes that have influenced and organized Young and Zazeela's ongoing engagement with sound and light. These themes include the appreciation of nature and its natural shapes and sounds; the importance of mathematics and organized tuning systems based on natural harmonics; enhanced attention spans and increased sensitivity to differences within apparent sameness; extensions of time, and alterations of space

The state of philosophy : an invitation to a reading in three parts of Stanley Cavell's The claim of reason by Richard Fleming( Book )

5 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 176 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The State of Philosophy is the first book-length text on Stanley Cavell's The Claim of Reason. It demonstrates the developed line of argument in The Claim of Reason and uncovers the unity of its presentation. In contrast to many current writings on Cavell, The State of Philosophy shows the necessity and value of reading The Claim of Reason as a whole rather than in isolated bits or parts. Richard Fleming develops the general outlines and identifies the organizing concepts of the work, thereby producing a context for fruitful rereading or first whole reading of the text. In his text, Fleming promotes a care and concern for Stanley Cavell's style of philosophizing, with the desire that Cavell's interpretation of the world, others, and ourselves become a part of the ongoing philosophical conversation. He shows that Cavell's writing style, which is so difficult for many, and his frequent use of indirect modes of presentation are a necessary ingredient of his ordinary language method and his quest for self-knowledge. Fleming does not shy away from questions about The Claim of Reason, and his book is populated with numerous voices that produce critical and continual reflection on what Cavell says and why he says it. The unique endnotes of the text, whether read in conjunction with Fleming's discussion or in isolation, present different voices and perspectives on Cavell's writings and produce a provocative encounter with The Claim of Reason and its secondary literature. The State of Philosophy, like Cavell's own works, is a text that will appeal to scholars from disciplines beyond philosophy. Literary theorists and critics will be engaged by the discussions of the relationships between philosophy and literature. Humanists will find the questions about the nature of human beings and their lives with others inviting. The extensive discussions of Wittgenstein's vision of language will provoke linguists and those with interest in the nature of language, while the concerns with autobiography and confession will engage those who study romantic literature and theology. Fleming's artistic quotations and musical metaphors open Cavell's text to those who work in the arts. By carefully presenting the argument of The Claim of Reason and attending to its modes of expression and many voices, Fleming demonstrates Cavell's unique interest in skepticism and the traditional struggles it has produced for philosophical work. The State of Philosophy helps the reader understand the general philosophical conclusion of The Claim of Reason and shows how Cavell has taken a "step beyond" Wittgenstein and given (especially Anglo-American) philosophy new direction

Lean sigma methods and tools for service organizations : the story of a cruise line transformation by Jaideep Motwani( Book )

3 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 30 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Every business aspires to be competitive and profitable in their markets. To do this, an organization needs to offer customers value propositions, whether it is manifest in the product they produce or in the service they provide. This in turn will create customer loyalty and growth. There are a number of organizational philosophies and strategies used by businesses to help accomplish this goal, among which are the concepts of Six-Sigma and Lean. Both are widely recognized and implemented, and both have been successful in improving value propositions of a variety of organizations, mostly in manufacturing concerns. Lean Sigma Methods and Tools for Service Organizations proposes to integrate the best practices from each of these philosophies and apply them to a customer-focused organization--a cruise ship--whose overriding mission is to deliver superior service to its customers. The authors demonstrate in this book how key components of both Six-Sigma and Lean, such as identifying and removing defects, elimination of waste, metrics, speed of delivery, and the seamless integration of these concepts and practices throughout the operation, serve to enhance the kind of value propositions that customers recognize and which allows the organization to be successful
