Wittgenstein's poker : the story of a ten-minute argument between two great philosophers by David Edmonds( Book )
49 editions published between 2001 and 2010 in 10 languages and held by 1,667 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
On October 25, 1946, in Cambridge, England, Ludwig Wittgenstein and Karl Popper came face-to-face for the first and only time. The encounter lasted just ten minutes, and did not go well. Their loud and aggressive confrontation became the stuff of instant legend. Almost immediately, rumors spread around the world that the two great philosophers had come to blows, armed with red-hot pokers. Twenty years later, when Popper wrote an account of the incident, he portrayed himself as the victor, provoking intense disagreement. Everyone present seems to have remembered events differently. What really happened in those ten minutes? And what does the violence of this brief exchange tell us about these two men, modern philosophy, and the significance of language in solving our philosophical problems? Wittgenstein's poker is an engaging mix of philosophy, history, biography, and literary detection

Rousseau's dog : two great thinkers at war in the Age of Enlightenment by David Edmonds( Book )
18 editions published between 2006 and 2014 in English and held by 911 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In 1766 Jean-Jacques Rousseau -- philosopher, novelist, composer, educational and political provocateur -- was on the run from intolerance, persecution, and enemies who decried him as a madman, dangerous to society. David Hume, now recognized as the foremost philosopher in the English language, was universally lauded as a paragon of decency. Having willingly put himself under Hume's protection, Rousseau, with his beloved dog, Sultan, took refuge in England, where he would find safety and freedom. Yet within months, the exile had accused Hume of plotting to dishonor him. The violence of Hume's response was totally out of character, and the resulting furor involved leading figures in British and French society, and became the talk of intellectual Europe. In Rousseau's Dog, David Edmonds and John Eidinow bring their engaging style and probing analysis to the bitter and very public quarrel that turned these two giants, the most influential thinkers of the Age of Enlightenment, into the deadliest of foes. The result is a story of celebrity and its price, of shameless spin, of destroyed reputations and shattered friendships. It is a story of two men whose writings would forever shape our world but whose personalities and ideas could scarcely have had less in common. It is also the story of reason and skepticism, as epitomized by Hume, colliding with the emotionalism and highly personalized confessional style pioneered by Rousseau. As brilliantly researched as it is briskly paced, Rousseau's Dog traces the path from the Age of Enlightenment to our own Age of Celebrity and, at its core, tells a most human tale of compassion, treachery, anger, and revenge
Bobby Fischer goes to war how the Soviets lost the most extraordinary chess match of all time by David Edmonds( Recording )
1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 36 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
For two months in 1972, the world watched, spellbound, as Bobby Fischer and Boris Spassky dueled for supremacy in chess. The match was as much about chess as it was a contest between the dysfunctional, manipulative Fischer and tournament officials; between the free-spirited Spassky who distrusted the Soviet system and the entrenched Soviet bureaucracy that grudgingly supported him; and between the ideologies of communism and free enterprise

Protectors of trusts by Mark Hubbard( Book )
3 editions published between 2011 and 2013 in English and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Le site d'éditeur indique : "A protector is a person appointed under the trust instrument given powers in relation to the administration of the trust. The modern use of protectors came about because settlors of international trusts were concerned about the risks involved in transferring their assets to trustees in distant countries. Protectors are now a common and important feature of trust structures, as used in many international financial centres. Protectors of Trusts is the ideal first port of call for anyone who needs to know about trust protectors, whether from a contentious or a non-contentious perspective and aims to provide a comprehensive treatment of the subject. Written by a leading practitioner from New Square Chambers, this title draws together the law of protectors which, like the jurisdictions of the trusts they protect, is found in cases and statutes scattered around the world. Practical in approach, this book analyses the relevant case law and statutory provisions, and provides detailed guidance on the use of protectors as well as coverage of the disputes which arise from their misuse. This work comprehensively covers the subject, with chapters on appointment and removal of protectors; powers; duties; remuneration and indemnity; liabilities; litigation by and against protectors and on enforcers of non-charitable purpose trusts. Readership: Solicitors, barristers and international lawyers specialising in trust law in private client and commercial contexts; solicitors and international lawyers working in-house in banks, trust companies, wealth managers and family offices in the UK and internationally; trust managers working in banks, trust companies wealth managers and family offices in the UK and internationally; academic libraries in the UK and internationally."
