The book is devoted to the theory of development of the biological systems. The fundamental equation of life of a biological population, based on the general physical principles, allows us to get... More > all the basic equations of population dynamics, describing the development of the populations under various environmental conditions. The equations describe the population transition that occurred in our human population in the late 20-th century. This transition may indicate the fact that the human population consists of two super-races – the old ”slow” race, and new fast-growing human race that appeared on Earth relatively recently. The separate chapter presents the base classification of predator-prey systems. The classification consists of ninety-six different equation systems. The book is addressed to a broad auditorium of biologists, ecologists, and demographers, as well as readers, interested in the development of the biological populations.

More > through the ages as an unsolved riddle of curiosity? In partial solution to this query, the term “human molecule”, as the definition of a person, was coined in 1869 by French philosopher Hippolyte Taine; the first rudimentary social, economic, and historical theories using the human molecule concept were developed in the early 20th century by those as Leon Walrus, Vilfredo Pareto, Henry Adams, and C. G. Darwin; and the first calculation of the molecular formula for a human being was made in 2000 by American limnologists Robert Sterner and James Elser. In modern terms, a person is defined as a 26-element reactionary molecule attached to substrate. The implications of this new philosophy point the way to a revolution in thought in areas such as life, work, free will, reactivity, marriage, purpose, and evolution.< Less

An Enquiry Concerning Human Understanding is a book by the Scottish empiricist philosopher David Hume, published in English in 1748. It was a revision of an earlier effort, Hume's A Treatise of Human... More > Nature, published anonymously in London in 1739–40. Hume was disappointed with the reception of the Treatise, which "fell dead-born from the press," as he put it, and so tried again to disseminate his more developed ideas to the public by writing a shorter and more polemical work.The end product of his labours was the Enquiry. The Enquiry dispensed with much of the material from the Treatise, in favor of clarifying and emphasizing its most important aspects. For example, Hume's views on personal identity do not appear.

A Treatise of Human Nature By David Hume

The theories Hume develops in the Treatise have their foundations in the writings of John Locke and George Berkeley, and Hume is associated with these two men as the third in the series of great... More > British empiricists. Like Hume, Locke denied the existence of innate ideas, dividing the sources of our ideas into two categories: those derived from sensation through the use of our sense organs and those derived from reflection through our own mental processes. For Hume, sensations and reflections both fall under the term impressions, while he reserves the term ideas for the results of mental processes such as imagination and memory. Hume’s discussion of abstract ideas rests on his acceptance of Berkeley’s claim that the idea we have of a general term always springs from a specific experience, though used in a general way. Hume praised this explanation but further clarified how a general term could stand for several similar, but specific, experiences.< Less
The Inequality of the Human Races By Arthur de Gobineau

This work was the first modern attempt to prove that race is the primary force determining world events and history. Working with the limited scientific data available at the time of writing (1853),... More > Arthur de Gobineau divided humans into three major groupings, white, yellow and black. He argues that the cause of the downfall of civilizations is always racial mixing, and that every civilization has either been directly controlled by what he called “Aryans” or has had a significant Aryan element mixed in it. He argues that climate and environment have no bearing on racial characteristics. This book was a cornerstone work for 20th century racial theory, and is of immense importance for this reason alone. This is a hand edited copy which contains none of the OCR errors which mar other versions. Joseph Arthur, Comte de Gobineau (1816–1882) was a French aristocrat, novelist and early ethnologist who set the academic standard for the development of racial science.< Less
