Description:
Chantilly, Virginia: Teaching Company, 2005. DVD. Twenty-four 30-minute lectures on four Fine DVDs in a Fine original case along with an As New 120-page paperback Course Guidebook. No shrink-wrap, otherwise As New. Not from a library. From the estate of Amato Giaccia, MD. Suitable for gifting. An interdisciplinary approach to this fascinating subject. In 24 lectures, you will investigate how the human brain is sculpted by evolution, constrained or freed by genes, shaped by early experience, modulated by hormones, and otherwise influenced to produce a wide range of behaviors, some of them abnormal. You will see that little can be explained by thinking about any one of these factors alone because some combination of influences is almost always at work. Contents: Lecture 1 Biology and Behavior—An Introduction ; Lecture 2 The Basic Cells of the Nervous System ; Lecture 3 How Two Neurons Communicate ; Lecture 4 Learning and Synaptic Plasticity ; Lecture 5 The Dynamics of Interacting Neurons ; Lecture 6… Read More

Chantilly, Virginia: Teaching Company, 2005. DVD. Very Good. Thirty-six 30-minute lectures on six DVDs in original cases along with a paperback Course Guidebook. Light shelf and use wear. Not from a library.
These lectures require no special or advanced knowledge of mathematics. Instead, you will learn economics through intuitive explanations and in plain English.
Professor Timothy Taylor's first 18 lectures focus on "microeconomics," or looking at economics "from the bottom up." You will study the behavior of individuals, households, and firms; and how they interact in markets for goods, labor, and saving and investment. The second half of the course covers "macroeconomics," or studying the economy "from the top down." Here you will examine the factors that help economists evaluate the economy on a national and global scale.
You will learn that economics is essentially a way of thinking about big problems that face our society, and that economists sometimes think very differently about these issues… Read More

These 48 lectures explore how—and why—this happened. Contents: Lecture 1 The Importance of the West ; Lecture 2 Geography Is Destiny ; Lecture 3 Culture Is Destiny ; Lecture 4 Renaissance Humanism—1350–1650 ; Lecture 5 Renaissance Princes—1450–1600 ; Lecture 6 The New World & the Old—1400–1650 ; Lecture 7 The Protestant Reformation—1500–22 ; Lecture 8 The Wars of Religion—1523–1648 ; Lecture 9 Rational & Scientific Revolutions—1450–1650 ; Lecture 10 French Absolutism—1589–1715 ; Lecture 11 English… Read More

These twelve lectures are designed to answer two questions that have nagged generations ever since Hitler and Nazism were destroyed: How could a man like Adolf Hitler and a movement like Nazism come to power in 20th-century Germany, an industrially developed country with a highly educated population?

This course of 24 half-hour lectures celebrates the sheer joy of mathematics, taught by a mathematician who is literally a magician with numbers. Although racing a calculator to solve a difficult problem may seem like a superhuman achievement, Professor Benjamin shows that there are simple tricks that allow anyone to look like a math magician. Professor Benjamin has another goal in this course: throughout these lectures, he shows how everything in mathematics is connected—how the beautiful and often imposing edifice… Read More
