Internet History Sourcebooks Update Information 2006: In 2006 the Internet Medieval Sourcebooks and associated sourcebooks are undergoing a major overhaul to remove bad links and add more documents. 1. This project is both very large and fairly old in Internet terms. 20,000 Letters, Manuscripts & Artifacts From Sigmund Freud Get Digitized and Made Available Online In his introduction to the 2010 essay collection Freud and Fundamentalism, Stathis Gourgouris defines fundamentalism as “thought that disavows multiplicities of meaning, abhors allegorical elements, and strives toward an exclusionary orthodoxy.” While there may be both religious and secular versions of such ideologies worldwide, we can trace the word itself to an Evangelical movement in the U.S., and to a set of beliefs that endures today among around a third of all Americans and has “animated America’s culture wars for over eighty years,” writes David Adams. The fundamentalist movement first took shape in 1920, just as Sigmund Freud wrote and published his Beyond the Pleasure Principle. It was in that book that Freud introduced the concept of the “death drive.” Adams argues that “the ‘fundamentalist’ and the ‘death drive,’ are twins: they came into being simultaneously,” and “their simultaneity is not merely an accident.

ναῦς Ancient Greek[edit] Etymology[edit] From Proto-Indo-European *néh₂us, cognate with Latin nāvis, Persian ناو (nâv), and Sanskrit नौ (nau, “ship”), नाव (nāva, “ship”). The earliest attested reference to the word is the Mycenaean Greek 𐀙𐀄𐀈𐀗 (na-u-do-mo, “shipbuilders”). Using Primary Sources on the Web This brief guide is designed to help students and researchers find and evaluate primary sources available online. Keep in mind as you use this website, the Web is always changing and evolving. If you have questions, please consult your instructor or librarian. Primary sources are the evidence of history, original records or objects created by participants or observers at the time historical events occurred or even well after events, as in memoirs and oral histories. Primary sources may include but are not limited to: letters, manuscripts, diaries, journals, newspapers, maps, speeches, interviews, documents produced by government agencies, photographs, audio or video recordings, born-digital items (e.g. emails), research data, and objects or artifacts (such as works of art or ancient roads, buildings, tools, and weapons).

Primary and Secondary Sources Way back in 1703, a massive storm hit the southern coast of England. It was a hurricane known as the Great Storm and it took over 8,000 lives. Today we know quite a bit about that storm and what actually happened when it came ashore. We know so much because we have a reliable way to research and document events, places, and people who matter.
