John Watson über dieses Buch: "Dieses Buch ist mein bescheidener Versuch, ein wenig Licht auf die Arbeit des besten und weisesten Menschen zu werfen, den ich je gekannt habe. Er hat – wenn ich das so sagen darf – die Wissenschaft der Deduktion zur Kunst erhoben. Nachdem ich bei einigen seiner bedeutendsten Fälle an seiner Seite sein durfte, liegt es nun an mir, seine Verdienste einem breiteren Publikum zu präsentieren. Er ist, um es kurz zu machen, der Mozart der Kriminalwissenschaft. Ich würde gern noch fortfahren, doch mit großer Freude darf ich Ihnen sagen, dass Sherlock Holmes persönlich zugesagt hat, einen Teil dieses Textes zu schreiben ..." Sherlock Holmes über dieses Buch: "Kaufen Sie dieses Buch auf keinen Fall. Was eigentlich eine Serie von spannenden Vorträgen hätte werden sollen, hat der Autor zu geschmackloser, billiger Unterhaltung degradiert. Die Wissenschaft der Deduktion ist eine Sparte menschlicher Errungenschaften, die ernsthafte Analysen erfordert, und hier ist nun dieses verschwenderisch gestaltete Buch durch Humor entstellt und mit Klatsch und Tratsch vergiftet. Offenbar ist diese Art der Sensationsgier nötig, um das Interesse der lesenden Bevölkerung zu wecken, aber nur ein Idiot wäre hiervon beeindruckt. Sie entscheiden."

Popular Culture as Pedagogy

Research in the Field of Adult Education

Author: Kaela Jubas,Nancy Taber,Tony Brown

Publisher: Springer

ISBN: 946300274X

Category: Education

Page: 160

View: 6058

"Grounded in the field of adult education, this international compilation offers a range of critical perspectives on popular culture as a form of pedagogy. Its fundamental premise is that adults learn in multiple ways, including through their consumption of fiction. As scholars have asserted for decades, people are not passive consumers of media; rather, we (re)make our own meanings as we accept, resist, and challenge cultural representations. At a time when attention often turns to new media, the contributors to this collection continue to find “old” forms of popular culture important and worthy of study. Television and movies – the emphases in this book – reflect aspects of consumers’ lives, and can be powerful vehicles for helping adults see, experience, and inhabit the world in new and different ways. This volume moves beyond conceptually oriented scholarship, taking a decidedly research-oriented focus. It offers examples of textual and discursive analyses of television shows and films that portray varied contexts of adult learning, and suggests how participants can be brought into adult education research in this area. In so doing, it provides compelling evidence about the complexity, politics, and multidimensionality of adult teaching and learning. Using a range of television shows and movies as exemplars, chapters relate popular culture to globalization, identity, health and health care, and education. The book will be of great use to instructors, students, and researchers located in adult education, cultural studies, women’s and gender studies, cultural sociology, and other fields who are looking for innovative ways to explore social life as experienced and imagined."

"Some people say, ‘How can you live without knowing?' I do not know what they mean. I always live without knowing. That is easy. How you get to know is what I want to know."—Richard P. Feynman Nobel Prize–winning physicist Richard P. Feynman (1918–88) was that rarest of creatures—a towering scientific genius who could make himself understood by anyone and who became as famous for the wit and wisdom of his popular lectures and writings as for his fundamental contributions to science. The Quotable Feynman is a treasure-trove of this revered and beloved scientist's most profound, provocative, humorous, and memorable quotations on a wide range of subjects. Carefully selected by Richard Feynman's daughter, Michelle Feynman, from his spoken and written legacy, including interviews, lectures, letters, articles, and books, the quotations are arranged under two dozen topics—from art, childhood, discovery, family, imagination, and humor to mathematics, politics, science, religion, and uncertainty. These brief passages—about 500 in all—vividly demonstrate Feynman's astonishing yet playful intelligence, and his almost constitutional inability to be anything other than unconventional, engaging, and inspiring. The result is a unique, illuminating, and enjoyable portrait of Feynman's life and thought that will be cherished by his fans at the same time that it provides an ideal introduction to Feynman for readers new to this intriguing and important thinker. The book features a foreword in which physicist Brian Cox pays tribute to Feynman and describes how his words reveal his particular genius, a piece in which cellist Yo-Yo Ma shares his memories of Feynman and reflects on his enduring appeal, and a personal preface by Michelle Feynman. It also includes some previously unpublished quotations, a chronology of Richard Feynman's life, some twenty photos of Feynman, and a section of memorable quotations about Feynman from other notable figures. Features: Approximately 500 quotations, some of them previously unpublished, arranged by topic A foreword by Brian Cox, reflections by Yo-Yo Ma, and a preface by Michelle Feynman A chronology of Feynman's life Some twenty photos of Feynman A section of quotations about Feynman from other notable figures Some notable quotations of Richard P. Feynman: "The thing that doesn't fit is the most interesting." "Thinking is nothing but talking to yourself inside." "It is wonderful if you can find something you love to do in your youth which is big enough to sustain your interest through all your adult life. Because, whatever it is, if you do it well enough (and you will, if you truly love it), people will pay you to do what you want to do anyway." "I'd hate to die twice. It's so boring."
