Greek Beyond GCSE covers all the linguistic requirements for the OCR AS and A Level in Classical Greek. It aims to bring students to a point where they can tackle original Greek texts with confidence. Although designed as a continuation of Greek to GCSE, it is self-contained and can be used independently. This second edition is brought in line with the current OCR specifications. The first part of the book introduces new constructions accompanied by exercises including the translation of sentences from English to Greek and reading passages(which in the opening chapters are lightly adapted). The next sections provide translation and comprehension passages at both AS and A Level standard, including verse unseens, scansion, and a list of 300 common poetic words (new to this edition). Next come longer unadapted extracts from a range of authors. Finally there is a reference section including a summary of all constructions, a comprehensive grammar, various appendices and a vocabulary of about 1,200 Greek words.

Postkapitalismus

Grundrisse einer kommenden Ökonomie

Author: Paul Mason

Publisher: Suhrkamp Verlag

Category: Political Science

Drei Dinge wissen wir: Der Kapitalismus hat den Feudalismus abgelöst; seither durchlief er zyklische Tiefs, spätestens seit 2008 stottert der Motor. Was wir nicht wissen: Erleben wir eine der üblichen Krisen oder den Anbruch einer postkapitalistischen Ordnung? Paul Mason blickt auf die Daten, sichtet Krisentheorien – und sagt: Wir stehen am Anfang von etwas Neuem. Er nimmt dabei Überlegungen auf, die vor über 150 Jahren in einer Londoner Bibliothek entwickelt wurden und laut denen Wissen und intelligente Maschinen den Kapitalismus eines Tages »in die Luft sprengen« könnten. Im Zeitalter des Stahls und der Schrauben, der Hierarchien und der Knappheit war diese Vision so radikal, dass Marx sie schnell in der Schublade verschwinden ließ. In der Welt der Netzwerke, der Kooperation und des digitalen Überflusses ist sie aktueller denn je. In seinem atemberaubenden Buch führt Paul Mason durch Schreibstuben, Gefängniszellen, Flugzeugfabriken und an die Orte, an denen sich der Widerstand Bahn bricht. Mason verknüpft das Abstrakte mit dem Konkreten, bündelt die Überlegungen von Autoren wie Thomas Piketty, David Graeber, Jeremy Rifkin und Antonio Negri und zeigt, wie wir aus den Trümmern des Neoliberalismus eine gerechtere und nachhaltigere Gesellschaft errichten können.

Die Wirklichkeit, die nicht so ist, ...

Eine Reise in die Welt der Quantengravitation

Was ist Wirklichkeit? Existieren Raum und Zeit tatsächlich, wenn wir uns anschicken, die elementarsten Grundlagen unserer Existenz zu erforschen? Wie viel davon können wir überhaupt verstehen? Carlo Rovelli beschäftigt sich seit vielen Jahren damit, die Grenzen unseres Verstehens zu erweitern. In diesem Buch nimmt er uns mit auf eine Reise, die von dem Realitätsverständnis der griechischen Klassik bis zur Schleifenquantengravitation führt. Ein großer Physiker unserer Zeit macht sich auf, uns ein neues Welt-Bild zu zeichnen: mit einem physikalischen Universum ohne Zeit, einer Raumzeit, die aus Schleifen und Körnchen besteht und in der Unendlichkeit nicht existiert. Einer Kosmologie, die ohne Urknall und Paralleluniversen auskommt und hier zum ersten Mal von einem ihrer «Erfinder» für ein breites Publikum einfach und ausführlich erklärt wird. Ein Buch über «die großen Herausforderungen der gegenwärtigen Naturwissenschaften, die all unser Wissen über die Natur in Frage stellen» (Rovelli).

Die Autoren dieses Bandes berichten sehr unterhaltsam, unterstützt durch Abbildungen und Cartoons, von dem Entdeckerspaß der Altertumswissenschaftler, aber auch von den Problemen, vor die sie sich bei ihrer Forschung gestellt sehen. Dabei geht es um Kunstraub genauso wie um große Theorien, um moderne Techniken wie um das Beherrschen der alten Sprachen, um das Puzzlespiel der Rekonstruktion wie um das Bild des Altertums im Wandel der Jahrhunderte. Ausgangspunkt sind vereinzelte Stücke eines antiken griechischen Tempels - des Tempels von Bassai -, ausgestellt im Britischen Museum, im Herzen des modernen London.

Am Brunnen stand ein großer Hund, trank Wasser dort mit seinem Mund. Da mit der Peitsch herzu sich schlich der bitterböse Friederich; und schlug den Hund, der heulte sehr, und trat und schlug ihn immer mehr. Da biß der Hund ihn in das Bein, recht tief bis in das Blut hinein. Der bitterböse Friederich, der schrie und weinte bitterlich. Jedoch nach Hause lief der Hund und trug die Peitsche in dem Mund. Ins Bett muß Friedrich nun hinein, litt vielen Schmerz an seinem Bein; und der Herr Doktor sitzt dabei und gibt ihm bittre Arzenei. Der Hund an Friedrichs Tischchen saß, wo er den großen Kuchen aß; aß auch die gute Leberwurst und trank den Wein für seinen Durst. Die Peitsche hat er mitgebracht und nimmt sie sorglich sehr in acht.
