This one-volume edition of the definitive English translation of Hegel’s Lectures on the Philosophy of Religion presents the full text and footnotes of the most mature and accessible of these lectures, those of 1827. The great philosopher discusses the concept of religion, Oriental religions and Judaism, Christology, the Trinity, the God-world relationship, and many other topics.

These notes are based on lectures the author gave at the University of Bonn and the Erwin SchrÃƒÂ¶dinger Institute in Vienna. The aim is to give a thorough introduction to the theory of KÃƒÂ¤hler manifolds with special emphasis on the differential geometric side of KÃƒÂ¤hler geometry. The exposition starts with a short discussion of complex manifolds and holomorphic vector bundles and a detailed account of the basic differential geometric properties of KÃƒÂ¤hler manifolds. The more advanced topics are the cohomology of KÃƒÂ¤hler manifolds, Calabi conjecture, Gromov’s KÃƒÂ¤hler hyperbolic

Differential geometry studies geometrical objects using analytical methods. Like modern analysis itself, differential geometry originates in classical mechanics. For instance, geodesics and minimal surfaces are defined via variational principles and the curvature of a curve is easily interpreted as the acceleration with respect to the path length parameter. Modern differential geometry in its turn strongly contributed to modern physics. This book gives an introduction to the basics of differential geometry, keeping in mind the natural origin of many geometrical quantities, as well as the appli

Algebraic topology is the study of the global properties of spaces by means of algebra. It is an important branch of modern mathematics with a wide degree of applicability to other fields, including geometric topology, differential geometry, functional analysis, differential equations, algebraic geometry, number theory, and theoretical physics. This book provides an introduction to the basic concepts and methods of algebraic topology for the beginner. It presents elements of both homology theory and homotopy theory, and includes various applications. The author’s intention is to rely on

Antitrust law regulates economic activity but differs in its operation from what is traditionally considered "regulation." Where regulation is often industry-specific and involves the direct setting of prices, product characteristics, or entry, antitrust law focuses more broadly on maintaining certain basic rules of competition. In these lectures Michael Whinston offers an accessible and lucid account of the economics behind antitrust law, looking at some of the most recent developments in antitrust economics and highlighting areas that require further research. He focuses on three areas: pric

This series of lectures was delivered by Abraham Kuyper at the Princeton Theological Seminary in 1898. Over the course of the lectures, he discusses Calvinism and the way it pertains to many aspects of life including politics, science, and art. According to Kuyper, Calvinism has a natural affinity for scientific investigation, because like scientific inquiry, Calvinism seeks to unify the cosmos under universal laws. Predestination, he says, proves that a set of laws exist to govern the world, and science is merely trying to figure them out. When it comes to art, Kuyper launches into a defen
