Ricardo and the History of Japanese Economic Thought: A Selection of Ricardo Studies in Japan During the Interwar Period

David Ricardo’s theories have been brought in fragments in Japan after the Meiji recovery of 1868 and his paintings got here into prominence overdue compared to different significant thinkers figuring within the background of financial thought.

The e-book seeks to examine the stories in Japan from the 12 months 1920 to the top of the Thirties – in the course of the time earlier than the outbreak of the second one international conflict, while even the research of classical economics turned tough. The booklet covers various points of his works and includes components that could be attention-grabbing to overseas or even jap readers this day with no unavoidably coming lower than the impression of Marx’s examining. It provides works on Ricardo which are at the moment, entirely unknown to the Ricardo students and extra regularly to the historians of financial suggestion outdoor Japan.

This booklet is a vital learn at the heritage of monetary inspiration in Japan.

Mantik, Schicksal und Freiheit im Mittelalter

Seit jeher haben Menschen ein reges Interesse daran, mehr über ihre Zukunft zu erfahren, wobei immer auch die Frage nach Schicksal und Freiheit des Indi­viduums gestellt wird. Philosophen, Historiker und Philologen untersuchen in diesem Band zum einen verschiedene mantische Praktiken des Mittel­alters auf deren theoretische Grundlagen und ihre Aus­füh­rungen.

Kritiker der Unsterblichkeitsdoktrin in Mittelalter und Renaissance

Die Destruktion der rationalen Psychologie als Doktrin ist, dem gangigen Urteil nach, das Verdienst von David Humes Essay Of the Immortality of the Soul und Immanuel Kants Kritik der reinen Vernunft. Hume und Kant stellen aber nur Hohepunkte einer Bewegung dar, deren Beginn wesentlich fruher anzusetzen ist. Die Frage nach der Unsterblichkeit der Seele gehorte in Mittelalter und Renaissance zu den meistdiskutierten und meistumkampften Themen. Die Studie stellt in detaillierten Analysen die damalige culture der methodologisch streng philosophischen Kritik an den Unsterblichkeitsbeweisen vor, die uber Heinrich von Harclay und Wilhelm von Ockham, Johannes Buridan und seine Schule (Peter von Ailly, Lorenz von Lindores, Heinrich Olting von Oyta, Marsilius von Inghen, Paul von Worczyn, Benedikt Hesse von Krakau, Biagio Pelacani von Parma) zu Pietro Pomponazzi fuhrt. Dabei wird auch eingegangen auf die Verbindungen Martin Luthers zu dieser culture. Die Darstellung des Einflusses dieser culture auf die deutsche Aufklarung schliesst die Studie ab. Ein umfangreicher Anhang bietet erstmalig zahlreiche aus den Handschriften erhobene Texte der genannten philosophischen Richtung, deren hier prazis nachgewiesenes kritisches capability fur ganze Epochen der Geistesgeschichte konstitutiv gewesen ist. Interessierte: Historiker der Philosophie des Mittelalters, der Renaissance und der Aufklarung.

52 Bell Laboratories constituted the research section of the American Telephone and Telegraph Company, of which Western Electric formed the manufacturing section. By 1945 Western Electric were producing twenty-six times as many rectifiers as in 1942, the production rate rising to over 50,000 devices monthly. '53 Although this survey must by its nature be incomplete, it is nevertheless possible to outline the general features of developments which took place in the semiconductor field from its earliest stages to the situation immediately prior to the invention of the point-contact transistor by Brattain and Bardeen in 1947.

Various modifications of the germanium alloy process were attempted in order to obtain increased frequency response; for instance the Philco company introduced, in the autumn of 1953, a jet etching technique in which the germanium wafer was etched by an electronically controlled jet of electrolyte. As the thickness of the wafer decreased, its transverse resistance correspondingly increased. By monitoring the process, the desired thickness would be obtained. Metal contacts were then plated to both sides of the thin section of the wafer.
