Kleines Handbuch f r den Umgang mit Unwissen

Author: Nassim Nicholas Taleb
Publisher: Albrecht Knaus Verlag
ISBN: 9783641119911
Release Date: 2013-11-11
Genre: Business & Economics

Eine kurze Anleitung in der Kunst des klaren Denkens „Bewusste Unwissenheit erweitert die Erfahrungswelt, gesetzt den Fall, man weiß sie zu nutzen.“ Wie uns Denkfehler, falsche Kategorien und blinde Flecken immer wieder ein Schnippchen schlagen, damit beschäftigt sich der Professor für Risikoforschung und Bestsellerautor Nassim Nicholas Taleb. In diesem Handbuch entlarvt er die Begrenztheit unserer Statistikgläubigkeit genauso wie die Voreingenommenheiten unseres Denkens und zeigt, wie wir mit dem, was wir nicht wissen, gewinnbringend umgehen können. Denn: „Für den einen ist ein Irrtum bloß ein Irrtum, für den anderen ist er eine Information.“

Die Macht der Geographie

Author: Tim Marshall
Publisher: Deutscher Taschenbuch Verlag
ISBN: 9783423428569
Release Date: 2015-11-20
Genre: History

Wie Geografie Geschichte macht Weltpolitik ist auch Geopolitik, denn alle Staatschefs unterliegen den Zwängen der Geographie. Berge und Ebenen, Wasser, Sand und Eis setzen ihrem Entscheidungsspielraum Grenzen. In 10 Kapiteln zeigt Tim Marshall knapp, anschaulich und pointiert, wie Geographie Geschichte macht und gemacht hat: in Russland, China, den USA, in Europa, Afrika, Lateinamerika, Indien und Pakistan, Japan und Korea, dem Nahen Osten, der Arktis und in Grönland: Regierungen kommen und gehen, der Hindukusch bleibt.

Genre: Fiction

Sie haben das Böse gesehen – und er lässt sie mit ihrem Blut zahlen. In Boston wird die Leiche einer jungen Frau gefunden – in der offenen Handfläche liegen ihre Augäpfel. Die Verstümmelung geschah post mortem, wie bei der Obduktion eindeutig festgestellt wird. Doch die genaue Todesursache bleibt unklar. Kurze Zeit später taucht die Leiche eines Mannes auf – Pfeile ragen aus seinem Brustkorb, die ebenfalls erst nach seinem Tod dort platziert wurden. Beide wurden Opfer desselben Täters, ansonsten scheint es keine Verbindung zwischen ihnen zu geben. Detective Jane Rizzoli von der Bostoner Polizei steht vor einem Rätsel, bis eine Spur sie zu einem Jahrzehnte zurückliegenden Fall von Misshandlungen in einem katholischen Kinderhort führt ...
