Between Two Worlds: A Reading of Descartes's Meditations by John Carriero

By John Carriero

Between Worlds is an authoritative remark on--and strong reinterpretation of--the founding paintings of recent philosophy, Descartes's Meditations. Philosophers have tended to learn Descartes's seminal paintings in an occasional manner, studying its therapy of person subject matters whereas ignoring different elements of the textual content. by contrast, John Carriero presents a sustained, systematic studying of the total textual content, giving an in depth account of the positions opposed to which Descartes was once reacting, and revealing anew the harmony, which means, and originality of the Meditations.

Carriero reveals within the Meditations an almost non-stop argument opposed to Thomistic Aristotelian methods of wondering cognition, and exhibits extra sincerely than ever sooner than how Descartes bridged the previous global of scholasticism and the recent one in all mechanistic naturalism. instead of casting Descartes's venture basically by way of skepticism, wisdom, and simple task, Carriero specializes in basic disagreements among Descartes and the scholastics over the character of realizing, the relation among the senses and the mind, the character of the person, and the way and to what volume God is cognized by way of people. by contrast history, Carriero exhibits, Descartes constructed his personal conceptions of brain, physique, and the relation among them, making a coherent, philosophically wealthy undertaking within the Meditations and surroundings the time table for a century of rationalist metaphysics.

The NexStar Evolution and SkyPortal User's Guide (The by James L. Chen,Adam Chen

By James L. Chen,Adam Chen

This e-book serves as a accomplished advisor for utilizing a Nexstar Evolution mount with WiFi SkyPortal regulate, jogging the reader throughout the procedure for aligning and working the system from a pill or smartphone. The subsequent new release Go-To mount from Celestron, this can be appropriate not just with the Nextstar Evolution but additionally with older mounts. it's the perfect resource for somebody who owns, or is taking into consideration possessing, a Nexstar Evolution telescope, or adapting their latest Celestron mount. Pros and cons of the method are completely coated with a severe intensity that addresses any attainable query through users.

Beginning with a quick background of Go-To telescopes and the genesis of this nonetheless new know-how, the writer covers each element of the newly increasing potential in looking at. This contains the linked Sky Portal phone and capsule software, the transition from the unique Nexstar GoTo procedure to the recent SkyPortal process, using the Sky Portal software with its Sky Safari four simple software program and Celestron WiFi variations, and discussions at the use of SkyPortal software utilizing the Celestron adapter on older Celestron mounts. Comments and suggestions for apparatus let the reader to effectively use and relish the hot WiFi strength with no turning into beaten. largely illustrated utilizing real screenshots from this system interface, this can be the single advisor to the Nextstar SkyPortal an observer will need.

Negative Identifizierung anhand des Tippverhaltens bei by Sebastian Erdenreich

By Sebastian Erdenreich

Im Umfeld des E-Commerce gibt es eine Vielzahl an Mechanismen und technischen Maßnahmen, um Transaktionen abzusichern, z. B. durch biometrische Systeme. Nach der Einführung in die Thematik biometrischer Verfahren und in die Tippverhaltenserkennung beschreibt Sebastian Erdenreich, wie auf foundation des Tippverhaltens Mehrfachanmeldungen erkannt werden können. Unter Verwendung moderner Methoden des maschinellen Lernens präsentiert er ein Verfahren, welches das Tippverhalten basierend auf beliebigen, relativ kurzen Eingabetexten auswerten und vergleichen kann. Das Verfahren lässt sich sowohl zur biometrischen Verifizierung als auch zur Identifizierung einsetzen, wobei die jeweils resultierende Erkennungsleistung in Abhängigkeit von den relevanten Einflussgrößen analysiert wird.
