LEGO Guns is packed with building instructions for five impressive looking "weapons" built entirely from LEGO TECHNIC parts. In this heavily illustrated 2-color book, you learn how to use LEGO TECHNIC pieces to build working model guns like the Warbeast, a sophisticated, fully-automatic submachine gun; Parabella, a semi-automatic pistol; Thriller, a slide action crossbow pistol with smooth cocking and chambering mechanisms; and the Magic Moth, a simple butterfly "knife" built with TECHNIC pieces. With the help of a bit of sanding, some rubber bands, and Krazy Glue, each gun actually shoots LEGO bricks at high speed, with surprising accuracy. The building instructions for each model are easy to follow and include detailed parts lists. LEGO Guns also includes sections discussing the general concepts of LEGO gun design and offers practical building tips and tricks. The models range from sophisticated to easy, and readers of all ages will find something enjoyable to build and play with.

Create working models that LEGO would never endorse. Try your hand at a toy gun that shoots LEGO plates, a candy catapult, a high voltage LEGO vehicle, a continuous-fire ping-pong ball launcher, and other useless but incredibly fun inventions.--From publisher description.

Though Heidegger’s Being and Time is often cited as one of the most important philosophical works of the last hundred years, its Division Two has received relatively little attention. This outstanding collection corrects that, examining some of the central themes of Division Two and their wide-ranging and challenging implications. An international team of leading philosophers explore the crucial notions that articulate Heidegger’s concept of authenticity, including death, anxiety, conscience, guilt, resolution and temporality. In doing so, they clarify the bearing of Division Two’s reflections on our understanding of intentionality, normativity, responsibility, autonomy and selfhood. These discussions raise important questions about how we may need to rethink the morals of Division One of Being and Time, the broader project to which that book was devoted, the shaping influence of figures such as Aristotle and Kierkegaard, as well as Heidegger’s relationship with his contemporaries and successors. Essential reading for students and scholars of Heidegger’s thought, and anyone interested in key debates in phenomenology, ethics, metaphilosophy and philosophy of mind.
