In Wahrscheinlichkeit und Wissenschaft, das hier erstmals in deutscher Übersetzung vorliegt, geht George Spencer Brown von der alltäglichen Vorstellung der "realen Welt" aus und zeigt, dass der Beobachter über die Grundoperationen der Unterscheidung eine solche unabhängige Welt erschafft: "Wir unterscheiden zwischen leibhaftigen Menschen und Romanfiguren, zwischen tatsächlichen und geträumten Ereignissen, zwischen echten und Spielzeugsoldaten, zwischen lebendigen Sprachen und Esperanto. Auch grenzen wir die reale Welt der Realität von den mannigfachen Formen des Irrealen ab, die jene Roman-, Ersatz-, Spielzeug- oder Traumwelten einschließen. Aufgrund einer entsprechenden Konvention setzt das Adjektiv 'real' irgendwie Sein voraus, wogegen irreale Welten nicht existieren sollen. Das ist offenbar widersprüchlich." Der Kern des Buches führt zu den metaphysischen Knoten im Begriff der Wahrscheinlichkeit, der im neuzeitlichen Wissenschaftsverständnis eine zentrale Position einnimmt. Spencer Brown deckt Widersprüche und Paradoxien in wissenschaftlichen Methoden auf, die sich auf die Idee der Wahrscheinlichkeit stützen. Hier hat das Buch selbst 40 Jahre nach seiner Erstveröffentlichung nichts an Brisanz und Aktualität verloren

Autobiography by G Spencer-Brown( Book )

4 editions published between 2004 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Many people can remember the 1920's, but it takes a remarkable skill to recreate those far-off days for readers who were born too late to experience them. Professor Spencer-Brown, whose classic works "Laws of Form" and "Only Two can play This Game" were both best-selling Bantam paperbacks, is perhaps the only writer who can bring to life the secret loves, fantasies, and frustrations of a two-year-old who recalls 1925 as if it were only yesterday

White Oak Dance Project : Past Forward, UC Berkeley( Visual )

2 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Mikhail Baryshnikov and White Oak Dance Project perform Past Forward, a retrospective and celebration of Judson Dance. Live works alternate with video sequences, created by Charles Atlas and narrated by Baryshnikov. The video (in Volume I) depicts a brief history of the Judson via stills and interviews, then each live work is bracketed with a quick description by its choreographer. Public participation is part of the program: local dancers, students, and community members take part in several works. Poor overall visual quality. While audio track is available for the video segments and pre-recorded music, there is no recorded sound for the audience or onstage activity. This is most noticeable in "Chair", since Raquel Aedo and Emmanuèle Phuon traditionally hum or sing "Stars and Stripes Forever" in the last part of their performance
