In OBJECT THINKING, esteemed object technologist David West contends that the mindset makes the programmer—not the tools and techniques. Delving into the history, philosophy, and even politics of object-oriented programming, West reveals how the best programmers rely on analysis and conceptualization—on thinking—rather than formal process and methods. Both provocative and pragmatic, this book gives form to what’s primarily been an oral tradition among the field’s revolutionary thinkers—and it illustrates specific object-behavior practices that you can adopt for true object design and superior results. Gain an in-depth understanding of: Prerequisites and principles of object thinking. Object knowledge implicit in eXtreme Programming (XP) and Agile software development. Object conceptualization and modeling. Metaphors, vocabulary, and design for object development. Learn viable techniques for: Decomposing complex domains in terms of objects. Identifying object relationships, interactions, and constraints. Relating object behavior to internal structure and implementation design. Incorporating object thinking into XP and Agile practice.

Kluge Bücher über Objektorientierte Analyse & Design gibt es viele. Leider versteht man die meisten erst, wenn man selbst schon Profi-Entwickler ist... Und was machen all die Normalsterblichen, die natürlich davon gehört haben, dass OOA&D dazu beiträgt, kontinuierlich tolle Software zu schreiben, Software, die Chef und Kunden glücklich macht - wenn sie aber nicht wissen, wie sie anfangen sollen? Sie könnten damit beginnen, dieses Buch zu lesen! Denn Objektorientierte Analyse & Design von Kopf bis Fuß zeigt Ihnen Schritt für Schritt, wie Sie richtige OO-Software analysieren, entwerfen und entwickeln. Software, die sich leicht wiederverwenden, warten und erweitern lässt. Software, die keine Kopfschmerzen bereitet. Software, der Sie neue Features spendieren können, ohne die existierende Funktionalität zu gefährden. Sie lernen, Ihre Anwendungen flexibel zu halten, indem Sie OO-Prinzipien wie Kapselung und Delegation anwenden. Sie lernen, die Wiederverwendung Ihrer Software dadurch zu begünstigen, dass Sie das OCP (das Open-Closed-Prinzip) und das SRP (das Single-Responsibility-Prinzip) befolgen. Sie lernen, wie sich verschiedene Entwurfsmuster, Entwicklungsansätze und Prinzipien zu einem echten OOA&D-Projektlebenszyklus ergänzen, UML, Anwendungsfälle und -diagramme zu verwenden, damit auch alle Beteiligten klar miteinander kommunizieren können, und Sie die Software abliefern, die gewünscht wird. Diesem Buch wurden die neuesten Erkenntnisse aus der Lerntheorie und der Kognitionswissenschaft zugrunde gelegt - Sie können davon ausgehen, dass Sie nicht nur schnell vorankommen, sondern dabei auch noch eine Menge Spaß haben!

Thinking Like a Plant

Who would imagine that plants can become master teachers of a radical new way of seeing and interacting with the world? Plants are dynamic and resilient, living in intimate connection with their environment. This book presents an organic way of knowing modeled after the way plants live. When we slow down, turn our attention to plants, study them carefully, and consciously internalize the way they live, a transformation begins. Our thinking becomes more fluid and dynamic; we realize how we are embedded in the world; we become sensitive and responsive to the contexts we meet; and we learn to thrive within a changing world. These are the qualities our culture needs in order to develop a more sustainable, life-supporting relation to our environment. While it is easy to talk about new paradigms and to critique our current state of affairs, it is not so easy to move beyond the status quo. That’s why this book is crafted as a practical guide to developing a life-infused way of interacting with the world.

You can find a whole range of programming textbooks intended for complete beginners. However, this one is exceptional to certain extent. The whole textbook is designed as a record of the dialogue of the author with his daughter who wants to learn programming. The author endeavors not to explain the Java programming language to the readers, but to teach them real programming. To teach them how to think and design the program as the experienced programmers do. Entire matter is explained in a very illustrative way which means even a current secondary school student can understand it quite simply.

Interest and Learning

In Interest and Learning, we advance a theory of interest which says interest is neither about allowing students to do what they like nor about imposing tasks upon students. Rather, we point out that interest is about facilitating students to see advantage in relevant tasks. We define interest not in terms of tendencies students express when a student sees and object and seeks to secure it; rather, we define interest in terms of tendencies a student expresses when he finds self in the midst of object/events, and student seeks advantage among events. Thus, we define interest in accordance with original conceptions back of the word interest which has its roots in the Latin or old French language. In other words, we define interest based upon what the French were thinking about when they coined the word, interest. In French, the original word is inter esse, meaning to be in the midst/center of ones objects or problems. What a reader of this book will find is that one in the midst of object/events, without thinking, is more or less like another object, with little or no knowledge of the events. In the midst of objects, one seeks to extricate self from objects/problems, therefore, one thinks. One begins to differentiate/characterize objects and reclaim self from objects. Differentiating and/or characterizing objects in order to extricate self from them is properly captured in Descartes popular phrase "I think, therefore, I am." In this book, the reader will find that thinking not only differentiates self from objects, but also that thinking helps to defines relationship among object. In other words, thinking that differentiates self from objects (relates to interest) is not the same as thinking that defines relationships among object (relates to desire). The former seeks to determine advantage through concepts but the latter seeks to secure an advantage through objects. Grasping concepts of person differentiating/characterizing objects/problems in order to extricate self from objects/problems is almost impossible especially because most empiricists believe that human beings are essentially objects; empiricists cannot see how an object thinks and to thus differentiate itself from other objects. The result is that a correct and functional definition of interest has been obscured. Many empiricists do not believe that human thinking is unique and/or is different from contingent occurrences. In this book, we expound a theory of thinking that point out that thinking relating to interest differs from thinking that relating to desire. The former determines an advantage through concepts and the latter secures an advantage through objects.

Modes of Knowledge and the Transcendental

An introduction to Plotinus Ennead 5.3 [49]

The philosophy of Plotinus is usually depicted as a quest for the absolute, outside and beyond the world of human knowledge and experience. Yet in the late treatise Ennead 5.3 [49], Plotinus shows himself a philosopher of the transcendental, rather than of the transcendent. Starting from a critical analysis of the idea of self-knowledge, he develops a world-view in which central notions of his metaphysics are represented, not as different “hypostases” or transcendent beings, but as limiting cases of reality as we human beings know it. Fundamental to this world-view is Plotinus' assumption that a close analogy can be established between the psychological and the physical description of man.

Essays on the Philosophy of George Berkeley

A tercentenary conference of March, 1985, drew to Newport, Rhode Island, nearly all the most distinguished Berkeley scholars now active. The conference was organized by the International Berkeley Society, with the support of several institutions and many people (whose help is acknowl edged below). This volume represents a selection of the lead papers deliv ered at that conference, most now revised. The Cartesian marriage of Mind and Body has proved an uneasy union. Each side has claimed supremacy and usurped the rights of the other. In anglophone philosophy Body has lately had it all pretty much its own way, most dramatically in the Disappearance Theory of Mind, whose varieties vary in appeal and sophistication, but uniformly shock sensibili ties. Only recently has Mind reasserted itself, yet the voices of support are already a swelling chorus. "Welcome," Berkeley would respond, since " ... all the choir of heaven and furniture of the earth ... have not a subsis tence without a mind ... " (Principles, sect. 6). In fairness, Berkeley does playa Disappearance trick of his own - with Matter now into the hat. But his act is far subtler than any brute denial of the obvious, and seeks rather to explain than bluntly to reject. Perhaps we are today better prepared to appreciate his insights.

This volume collects twenty-one original essays that discuss Michael Krausz's distinctive and provocative contribution to the theory of interpretation. At the beginning of the book Krausz offers a synoptic review of his central claims, and he concludes with a substantive essay that replies to scholars from the United States, England, Germany, India, Japan, and Australia. Krausz's philosophical work centers around a distinction that divides interpreters of cultural achievements into two groups. Singularists assume that for any object of interpretation only one single admissible interpretation c.
