Synergetic Theory of Life : Nature, Algorithm, Self-insight, Conscious Evolution

300,00 ₴
Synergetic Theory of Life looks at the evolutional path of life on the Earth from its beginning until now. Life on Earth was not created, it was not brought in from outside, it was not a result of revealing the secret essences, but it is a phenomenon of self-organisation based on synergism of high-molecular compounds (polymers), proteins and nucleic acids.

Poland : A History

300,00 ₴

Adam Zamoyski first wrote his history of Poland two years before the collapse of the Soviet Union. This substantially revised and updated edition sets the Soviet era in the context of the rise, fall and remarkable rebirth of an indomitable nation. In 1797, Russia, Prussia and Austria divided Poland among themselves, rewriting Polish history to show that they had brought much-needed civilisation to a primitive backwater. But the country they wiped off the map had been one of Europe\'s largest and most richly varied, born of diverse cultural traditions and one of the boldest constitutional experiments ever attempted. Its destruction ultimately led to two world wars and the Cold War.

Russian Society in the eighteenth century was dominated by the nobility. This class made large contribution to secular culture and played a role of vital importance in the government, the armed forces and the economic life of Russia. Dr Dukes has based his study on the materials of Catherine the Great\'s Legislative Commission of 1767. Despite the existence it print since the late nineteenth century of a vast amount of source material in the form of records of this Commission, it has been little explored by western historians. The author begins with a description of noble society before the Commission and of the general situation in Russia before the beginning of Catherine\'s reign.

Pork and Milk + DVD

150,00 ₴

On ne cesse en ce moment de parler du «retour au religieux», d\'expliquer comment des individus que rien n\'y prédisposait deviennent subitement intégristes. Valérie Mréjen a choisi le parti pris résolument inverse. Elle est allée en Israël pour rencontrer ceux qui, élevés dans l\'orthodoxie la plus sévère, ont décidé un jour de rompre avec le fanatisme religieux, ceux dont on dit en hébreu qu\'ils ont choisi «d\'aller vers la question». Pork and milk (deux ingrédients que la religion juive interdit de mélanger) croise ainsi habilement les témoignages d\'une dizaine d\'apostats qui racontent leur parcours, confient leurs doutes, leurs difficultés, leurs ruses aussi pour tenter de cacher leur nouvelle vie à leur famille.
