amazon Immanuel Kant Kant, ImmanuelBritannica Student Article (1724–1804). The philosopher of the 1700s who ranks with Aristotle and Plato of ancient times is Immanuel Kant. He set forth a chain of explosive ideas that humanity has continued to ponder since his time. Kant was born on April 22, 1724, in Königsberg, Germany (now Kaliningrad, Russia). After leaving college he worked for nine years as a tutor in the homes of wealthy families. Kant never married and he never traveled farther than 50 miles (80 kilometers) from Königsberg. Kant's most famous work was the ‘Critique of Pure Reason' (published in German in 1781). For example, we see only one or two walls of a house at any one time. Kant said that thoughts must be based on real things.

Creative community for the Collaborative Economy Why Partners Need Complementary Strengths Several decades ago, a junior high shop teacher wanted to impress upon his new students the dangers of the oxyacetylene torch. "Pay attention, class," he said, pulling a balloon from his pocket and holding it to the nozzle of the torch. "I am going to fill this balloon with oxygen." When the balloon was full, he lit a match under it, producing a strong pop. "Not bad, eh?" Before you can forge a successful alliance, you must understand what you bring to the combination, and equally important, what you don't. He pulled another balloon from his pocket. The teacher pulled yet another balloon from his pocket. The mixture exploded with such force, the students could hear it loudly despite their plugged ears. Was it the oxygen or the acetylene that caused the explosion? What you bring (and don't bring) to the collaboration Your partnerships work on the same principle. These statements reflect not just interdependence, but a mutual recognition of it. The polymath myth Blame Leonardo da Vinci.

Hållbar shopping chockar konsumtionen USA:s första dam, Michelle Obama, har anlagt en ekologisk köksträdgård på Vita husets ”South Lawn”, Miljöpartiets gruppledare Åsa Jernberg har kommit med det omdebatterade förslaget att införa en köttfri dag per vecka i Stockholms skolor. Och på Rosenhills musteri utanför Stockholm lockat bakluckeloppisar allt fler deltagare för varje gång de ordnas. Spännvidden må vara stor, men gemensamt för alla de här initiativen stavas hållbar konsumtion. Hållbar konsumtion är en tydlig trend och samtidigt en motreaktion på den konsumtionskultur som kritiserats hårt under senare år, men som fortfarande dominerar i många delar av världen. En tredjedel av all mat som produceras i världen, 1,3 miljarder ton, kasseras. Den här överkonsumtionen och överutnyttjandet av jordens resurser anses ligga bakom många av de miljöproblem vi står inför i dag – växande soptippar, förgiftade vatten, utdöende arter och stigande temperatur. Den 31 oktober 2011 deklarerade FN att jorden fått sju miljarder invånare.

In Principo | Dynamiques collaboratives Exhibition Monet 2010 - RMN - Grand Palais - Paris Pendant plus de soixante ans, Claude Monet a peint sans relâche, élaborant une oeuvre qui incarne l'expression la plus pure de l'impressionnisme, pour constituer au début du xx e siècle un des fondements de l'art moderne.
