Quirkologie ist eine neue Disziplin der Verhaltenspsychologie, die Professor Richard Wiseman seit über zwanzig Jahren betreibt.

Typisch Bill Bryson: eine humorvolle und leicht verständliche Einführung in Shakespeares Leben, seine Werke und seine Zeit Mensch oder Mythos – wer war William Shakespeare wirklich, der geistige Vater von Romeo und Julia, von Hamlet und Macbeth? Gab es den Menschen Shakespeare überhaupt? Ist der Name womöglich das Pseudonym eines Unbekannten, der seine Identität verschleiern wollte? Bill Bryson schließt die Wissenslücken um den bekanntesten und rätselhaftesten Autor der Welt. Dabei lädt er seine Leser ein zu einer vergnüglichen Reise durch das elisabethanische England. Ein echter Bill Bryson: eloquent, klug und mit einem Augenzwinkern geschrieben.

Die neue Wissenschaft über die gemeinschaftliche Natur der Völker

Giambattista Vico (1668-1744) was one of the most original and idiosyncratic philosophers before Kant and Hegel. Although Giorgio Vasari had already diagnosed a cycle of rise, blossoming and decline in the history of art, Vico was the first to base this on a philosophical system. Isolated in Naples from direct contact with the philosophical life of his times, he worked at his grand design of the cycles of rise, blossoming, decline and eternal return which he saw in all areas of culture. His points of reference were ancient mythology and Greek and Roman history. To that extent, he is regarded today as the founder of the philosophy of history and the precursor of a tradition which extends to Hegel and Oswald Spengler's "Decline of the West".
