Cholesterol in Membrane Models provides the most recent summary available of basic molecular models and experiments in models of biological membranes.

The experimental movement of cholesterol into model membranes and phase diagrams of cholesterol in these membranes by nuclear magnetic resonance and by thermal techniques using different lipid chain lengths are discussed. Light and electron microscopy that explore the spatial distribution of cholesterol in the model membrane are covered. The book also examines the use of infrared/Raman and neutron spectroscopy.

Dieses historische Buch kann zahlreiche Tippfehler und fehlende Textpassagen aufweisen. Kaufer konnen in der Regel eine kostenlose eingescannte Kopie des originalen Buches vom Verleger herunterladen (ohne Tippfehler). Ohne Indizes. Nicht dargestellt. 1906 edition. Auszug: ...jener zu dieser Richtung darzustellen; sie steht ebenso weit unter der Naivitat, wie Lessing uber ihr steht; es lasst sich eine Zeit denken und sie ist vielleicht nicht fern, in welcher zwischen beiden Bestrebungen eine goldene Mittelstrasse eingehalten wird. Wer den Kontakt mit dem Volke hat, wird weiter kommen als Lessing; denn er braucht die Wahrheit nicht zu suchen, er hat sie. Goethe ist theilweise so verfahren. Lessing war der Sturmvogel der kritischen und literarischen Periode, in welcher wir uns noch jetzt befinden; Goethe ist der Sturmvogel der produzirenden und kunstlerischen Periode, welcher wir demnachst entgegengehen. Man sollte dies Augurium nicht ubersehen. Das grosste Problem der Gegenwart ist: den so gewaltig klaffenden Riss zwischen Gebildeten und Ungebildeten zu uberbrucken; vermittelst der bisher so beliebten Halbbildung lasst sich dasselbe nicht losen. Nicht von oben aus rekonstruirt man Hauser und Nationen; nur wenn der Volksboden seine schopferischen Tiefen aufthut, kann neues geistiges Leben in Deutschland erbluhen. Christus Sokrates Luther haben von unten nach oben gebaut; und sie haben mehr erreicht, als irgend einer und sei es der hochststehende ihrer gebildeten" Vor-und Nachfolger; hier also ist klar die Bahn vorgezeichnet, welche der kunftige Deutsche zu wandeln hat. Je niedriger er seinen Standpunkt nimmt, um zu den hochsten Zielen zu gelangen, um so weiter wird er es bringen. Mit der durchmessenen Distanz des inneren Aufschwungs wachst die entsprechende geistige und sittliche Leistungsfahigkeit; nicht umsonst hat Goethe betont, dass

The Making of Europe

Author: Christopher Dawson
Publisher: CUA Press
ISBN: 0813210836
Release Date: 1932
Genre: History

In this seminal work, described by the Times Literary Supplement as "impressive alike by the authority of its learning and the originality of its argument," Christopher Dawson concludes that the period of the fourth to the eleventh centuries commonly known as the Dark Ages is not a barren prelude to the creative energy of the medieval world. Instead, he argues that it is better described as "ages of dawn," for it is in this rich and confused period that the complex and creative interaction of the Roman empire, the Christian Church, the classical tradition, and barbarous societies provided the foundation for a vital, unified European culture. In an age of fragmentation and the emergence of new nationalist forces, Dawson argued that if "our civilization is to survive, it is essential that it should develop a common European consciousness and sense of historic and organic unity." But he was clear that this unity required sources deeper and more complex than the political and economic movements on which so many had come to depend, and he insisted, prophetically, that Europe would need to recover its Christian roots if it was to survive. Glenn Olsen has noted that Dawson's point "was that the spread and history of Christianity had provided the narrative which had formed Europe and taken out of this narrative, Europe could hardly be spoken of as existing." In a time of cultural and political ambiguity, The Making of Europe is an indispensable work for understanding not only the rich sources but also the contemporary implications of the very idea of Europe. PRAISE FOR THE ORIGINAL EDITION: "The Dark Ages lose their darkness, and take on form and significance. Thanks to the author's erudition and marshalling of facts, we begin to have a notion of what it is all about."--Aldous Huxley, The Spectator "Each chapter is a condensed philosophical survey of an important historical movement which profoundly influenced the course of civilization. Each chapter might stand alone, but taken in connections with the others it serves to round out a majestic picture of the slow development of a new order."--Commonweal
