An enquiry concerning human understanding by David Hume( Book )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

David Hume's Enquiry concerning Human Understanding is the definitive statement of the greatest philosopher in the English language. His arguments in support of reasoning from experience, and against the "sophistry and illusion"of religiously inspired philosophical fantasies, caused controversy in the eighteenth century and are strikingly relevant today, when faith and science continue to clash. The Enquiry considers the origin and processes of human thought, reaching the stark conclusion that we can have no ultimate understanding of the physical world, or indeed our own minds. In either sphere we must depend on instinctive learning from experience, recognizing our animal nature and the limits of reason. Hume's calm and open-minded skepticism thus aims to provide a new basis for science, liberating us from the "superstition" of false metaphysics and religion. His Enquiry remains one of the best introductions to the study of philosophy, and his edition places it in its historical and philosophical context. --Provided by the publisher

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Disc 1: The Joy of Stats (2010): takes viewers on a roller coaster ride through the wonderful world of statistics. Presenter Hans Rosling is a Professor of Global Health at Stockholm's Karolinska Institute and founder of the Gapminder Foundation. He's a man who revels in the glorious nerdery of stats - and in The Joy of Stats he entertainingly explores the history of statistics, how statistics works mathematically and how with statistics we can take the massive deluge of data of today's computer age and use it to see the world as it really is - not just as we imagine it to be. Rosling's famous lectures use enormous quantities of public data to reveal the story of the world's past, present and future development
Ethics in reproductive medicine by David R Bromham( )

1 edition published in 1992 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The complexity of ethical issues involving unborn children is laid out in this book by leaders in the fields of medicine, theology, philosophy and economics; contributions are also made by representatives of family planning organisations and afflicted patients. The subject of human embryo manipulation springs immediately to mind and is fully discussed here. In addition, a wide range of questions are addressed. What rights do parents have with regards to an embryo or fetus? What ethical dilemmas are posed by the population crisis? Where do professionals stand in the abortion debate? Is it ethical to allocate new technological resources indiscriminantly? The book not only investigates these areas of debate, but also considers the nature of the debate itself: the role that various participants play and the tactics that they use for promoting their arguments. This approach allows you to understand both the arguments involved and the ways in which the various contenders present them
