The 10 Greatest Books Ever, According to 125 Top Authors (Download Them for Free)

Featuring films by Hitchcock, Kubrick, Welles and Fellini, this master list came together in 2012 when Sight & Sound (the cinema journal of the British Film Institute) asked contemporary critics and directors to name their 12 favorite movies. Nearly 900 cinephiles responded, and, from those submissions, a meta list of 10 was culled. So how about something similar for books, you ask? The Guggenheim Puts 109 Free Modern Art Books Online. Back in January, 2012, we mentioned that the Guggenheim (the Frank Lloyd Wright-designed modern art museum in NYC) had put 65 art catalogues on the web, all free of charge.

Brian Eno’s Reading List: 20 Essential Books for Sustaining Civilization

UPDATE: The folks from the Long Now have kindly asked me to contribute to the Manual for Civilization library — here is my own reading list. There is something inescapably alluring about the reading lists of cultural icons, perhaps because in recognizing that creativity is combinatorial and fueled by networked knowledge, we intuitively long to emulate the greatness of an admired mind by replicating the bits and pieces, in this case the ideas found in beloved books, that went into constructing it.

Alan Turing’s Reading List: What the Computing Pioneer Borrowed From His School Library

“You are a mashup of what you let into your life,” it’s been said. Since creativity is combinatorial, the architecture of mind and character is deeply influenced by the intellectual stimulation we choose to engage with — including the books we read. There is hardly anything more fascinating than the private intellectual diet of genius — like this recently uncovered list of books computing pioneer and early codehacker Alan Turing borrowed from his school library.

Though heavy on the sciences, the selection features some wonderful wildcards that bespeak the cross-disciplinary curiosity fundamental to true innovation. Sidelights on Relativity, published in 1922, is a two-part book based on a series of lectures Albert Einstein gave between 1920 and 1922.

Vietnam – Analysis of an Example All economy is political economy in the broadest sense, and the system of advanced industrial society is global, also in the sense that it delivers all dimensions of human existence, private and public, to the ruling societal powers.

The system is also global in the sense that there are no longer any external factors for this system, that the forces furthest removed, geographically and otherwise, become forces within the system. German History in Documents and Images. “Tip-of-the-Tongue Syndrome,” Transactive Memory, and How the Internet Is Making Us Smarter.

By Maria Popova “A public library keeps no intentional secrets about its mechanisms; a search engine keeps many.” “The dangerous time when mechanical voices, radios, telephones, take the place of human intimacies, and the concept of being in touch with millions brings a greater and greater poverty in intimacy and human vision,” Anaïs Nin wrote in her diary in 1946, decades before the internet as we know it even existed. Her fear has since been echoed again and again with every incremental advance in technology, often with simplistic arguments about the attrition of attention in the age of digital distraction. But in Smarter Than You Think: How Technology is Changing Our Minds for the Better (public library), Clive Thompson — one of the finest technology writers I know, with regular bylines for Wired and The New York Times — makes a powerful and rigorously thought out counterpoint. He writes in the introduction: Why Science-Fiction Writers Are So Good at Predicting the Future.

Here, a photo of the 12th (Prince of Wales') Lancers Group. From a private collection, provided courtesy of the National Archives On the outskirts of London, in a basement room of the British National Archives, a historian delicately turns pages that have the brittle feel of dead leaves. Each is covered in text — some typewritten, some in spidery handwriting from a pen that scratched across the page 100 years ago.

The First Book of Space Travel: How a Female Author & Illustrator Got Kids Into Science in 1953. By Maria Popova “If I were a fairy godmother, my gift to every child would be curiosity.” Vintage science illustrations hold a special charm, and illustrated children’s science books by women are a (heartening) rarity even today, so a woman who got kids excited about science half a century ago is nothing short of a cultural hero.

Such is the case of Jeanne Bendick, who authored and illustrated more than one hundred mid-century children’s books about science and technology. An advocate of questions over answers as the key to the scientific mind and a champion of combinatorial creativity who recognized that all ideas build on those that came before, she articulated her ethos with inspiring eloquence: One part of the job I set for myself is to make those young readers see that everything is connected to everything — that science isn’t something apart.

" The original paperback cover for Joanna Russ' 1975 novel The Female Man (detail above) called the book "startling. " A fan named Peter Graham once said that the golden age of science fiction is 12.

That's true for me, although like many other fans I'd insist that my first exposure to SF happened during the real golden age. The decade from 1965 to 1975 was science fiction's so-called New Wave, when the genre took on both the turmoil of the '60s and the literary techniques of high modernism. The mix of the two created spectacular results, as dozens of energized writers penned scores of wonderful books. Here are three of the New Wave's best. Free Philip K.

Simple as that.” ― Stephen King In the afterword to his acclaimed guide On Writing: A Memoir of the Craft, Stephen King shares the following reading list of 96 books, covering a diverse range of fiction and non-fiction titles.

Accompanying the list is this explanation: These are the best books I’ve read over the last three or four years, the period during which I wrote The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon, Hearts in Atlantis, On Writing, and the as-yet-unpublished From a Buick Eight. In some way or other, I suspect each book in the list had an influence on the books I wrote.As you scan this list, please remember that I’m not Oprah and this isn’t my book club.

Biblioteca Pijama Surf: algunos libros de Slavoj Zizek digitalizados y descargables (PDFs) Innovacion, libertad y poder en la era de la informacion. Porto Alegre, 29 enero 2005 1.La era de la informacion es nuestra era. Es un periodo historico caracterizado por una revolucion tecnologica centrada en las tecnologias digitales de informacion y comunicación, concomitante, pero no causante, con la emergencia de una estructura social en red, en todos los ambitos de la actividad humana, y con la interdependencia global de dicha actividad. Es un proceso de transformacion multidimensional que es a la vez incluyente y excluyente en funcion de los valores e intereses dominantes en cada proceso, en cada pais y en cada organización social. 2.Como todo proceso de transformacion hist/orica, la era de la informacion no determina un curso unico de la historia humana. Sus consecuencias, sus caracteristicas dependen del poder de quienes se benefician en cada una de las multiples opciones que se presentan a la vountad humana.
