  • L. Ron Hubbard

    Scientology & Ability Scientology simply means 'wisdom, study of.' But it could also be said to mean this: the application of the methodologies of science to the problems of the mind. And that is what it is and that, very truthfully, is what has happened. - L. Ron Hubbard When still a young man attending university, Ron observed that those working in the humanities had no training in the exact sciences. Believing that the precision of the scientific method might furnish a solution to the problems of life and livingness, he urged faculty members of the psychology department to apply the principles of physics to the field of the mind. It was an entirely novel approach. And...read more

  • Edmondo De Amicis

    Formatosi all’Accademia militare di Modena fu sempre forte in lui lo spirito patriottico, che seppe ben utilizzare come elemento di critica nella descrizione di altre città come Parigi. Affascinato da “quest’immensa rete dorata” seppe darne una descrizione accurata, dapprima cogli occhi storditi di un semplice turista poi con la consapevolezza quasi di un parigino. E’ minuzioso nel descrivere le sue bellezze ed altrettanto nel rilevarne le tentazioni alle quali è impossibile resistere. Dedica un ampio spazio alla “Esposizione universale”, frastuono di colori, arte, civiltà, soffermandosi sulle figure un pò grottesche di uomini e donne che la riempiono. Uno spettacolo che...read more

  • Alfred Marshall

    Book 1: Preliminary Survey Principles of Economics is a leading economics textbook by Alfred Marshall (1842-1924). Marshall began writing the treatise in 1881 and he spent much of the next decade at work on it. His plan for the work gradually extended to a two-volume compilation on the whole of economic thought; the first volume was published in 1890 to worldwide acclaim that established him as one of the leading economists of his time. It brought the ideas of supply and demand, of marginal utility and of the costs of production into a coherent whole, and became the dominant economic textbook in England for a long period.

    Pater Brown ist ein englischer katholischer Pfarrer, der als Hobby Kriminalfälle löst. Dies gelingt ihm, indem er sich in den Täter hineinversetzt, dabei das Verbrechen selbst begeht, wie er sagt. Dabei ist er aber weniger daran interessiert, Verbrecher der irdischen Gerechtigkeit auszuliefern, sondern er will sie zu Gott führen; eine freiwillige Beichte des Täters genügt ihm. Dabei spielt es für ihn keine Rolle, welches Amt diese Person...read more

  • L. Ron Hubbard

    A Postulate Out of a Golden Age Tyrannies are sown at times when nobody is very watchful, where everybody has a full stomach, where everything is calm, nothing much appears on the surface. And then tyrannies show up and become very obvious when individuals, growing a little hungrier, a little less possessed of production, suddenly notice that there is somebody saying they mustn't talk, somebody saying they mustn't have opinions. - L. Ron Hubbard To overcome tyranny is to win freedom as a people, a nation or even Mankind. Yet to benefit fully from their liberties, each man and woman must also be free-as individuals. In regard to freedom as a nation, here is the remarkable...read more

  • L. Ron Hubbard

    Portions of You If the world around him is bad, then he is unwilling to grant life. If the world around him he conceives to be good, he is willing to grant life to it. A world with life granted to it runs well. A world with no life granted to it goes into chaos and disappears. Now, this is the riddle of the centuries. - L. Ron Hubbard It has no mass or location. It is not energy. Yet it is alive. And it gives life. Such are the characteristics of "a life"'giving unit"-the source not only of all thought, but of all that is decent, ethical and noble. Indeed, this is you. The discovery that each individual is, in fact, a source of life radically alters the relationship...read more
