A Visual Dictionary of Philosophy: Major Schools of Thought in Minimalist Geometric Graphics by Maria Popova A charming exercise in metaphorical thinking and symbolic representation. Rodin believed that his art was about removing the stone not part of the sculpture to reveal the essence of his artistic vision. Perhaps this is what Catalan-born, London-based graphic designer Genis Carreras implicitly intended in chiseling away the proverbial philosopher’s stone to sculpt its minimalist essence. Many moons ago, I discovered with great delight Carreras’s series of geometric graphics explaining major movements in philosophy and now, with the help of Kickstarter, the project has come to new life in book form. Skepticism True knowledge or certainty in a particular area is impossible. Carreras writes: The visuals [are] open to different interpretations, allowing the reader to draw their path to connect the idea behind each theory with its form. Relativism Absolutism An absolute truth is always correct under any condition. Stoicism Positivism Empiricism Humanism Holism Authoritarianism Solipsism

Both print-based and Web-based sources are included. Internet Sources | Searching for Etymology | Print Resources Internet Sources In general, web sites on word and phrase origins are good, but not comprehensive: most of them are question services of a sort, and the answers are posted on the site. Some of these archives can be quite large, and not necessarily organized by anything more than date of posting; if you're looking for something specific, use the find function on your browser (this will be a button in Netscape; in Internet Explorer, it's under the "edit" pull-down menu). Brewer's Dictionary of Phrase and Fable From the 1894 work of the same name; this is extensively cross-referenced, and excellent for phrases which have their roots in literature or mythology.

Install Ubuntu Linux Alongside Windows 8 in 10 easy steps Introduction One of the most talked about topics of the last year has been the Windows 8 debacle and how it is now much more difficult to install Linux because of the UEFI secure boot system. I have just obtained my first laptop that contains Windows 8 and therefore my first laptop with UEFI and secure boot enabled. The hardware The hardware that I used to compile this guide is the Dell Inspiron 3521 laptop which you can pick up for around £400 at Argos. The Dell Inspiron 3521 has 6 gigabytes of RAM, an Intel core I3 processor, a 1 terabyte hard-drive and a 15.1 inch display. Strategy The actual strategy for installing Ubuntu alongside Windows 8 isn't much different to installing Ubuntu alongside Windows 7, Vista or even XP. 1. This is the most important step in the whole process, especially if you harbour any hopes of booting into Windows again should the worst happen. It used to be the case that when you bought a computer you received a set of disks or a CD that had a rescue image on it. 2.
