Focusing on developing practical R skills rather than teaching pure statistics, Dr. Kurt Taylor Gaubatz’s A Survivor’s Guide to R provides a gentle yet thorough introduction to R. The book is structured around critical R tasks, and focuses on applied knowledge, rather than abstract concepts. Gaubatz’s easy-to-read approach helps students with little or no background in statistics or programming to develop real-world R skills through straightforward coverage of R objects and functions. Focusing on real-world data, the challenges of dataset construction, and the use of R’s powerful graphing tools, the guide is written in an accessible, sympathetic, even humorous style that ensures students acquire functional R skills they can use in their own projects and carry into their work beyond the classroom.

Quantifying the Qualitative by Katya Drozdova and Kurt Taylor Gaubatz presents a systematic approach to comparative case analysis based on insights from information theory. This new method, which requires minimal quantitative skills, helps students, policymakers, professionals, and scholars learn more from comparative cases. The approach avoids the limitations of traditional statistics in the small-n context and allows analysts to systematically assess and compare the impact of a set of factors on case outcomes with easy-to-use analytics. Rigorous tools reduce bias, improve the knowledge gained from case studies, and provide straightforward metrics for effectively communicating results to a range of readers and leaders.

Jahrtausendelang war für uns Menschen das eigene Universum so unbegreiflich, dass der Gedanke an andere Welten unvorstellbar war. Erst die moderne Physik mit der Theorie der Multiversen schuf die Voraussetzung, andere, neue Universen zu beschreiben, wie sie nach den Gesetzen der Physik möglich sind. John Barrow zeigt uns die bislang entdeckten Lösungen für Einsteins Universumsgleichung in diesem faszinierenden Buch: rotierende und unberechenbare, sich aufblähende und schrumpfende, heiße und kalte, bucklige und glatte, flache Universen und solche mit einem Loch in der Mitte, Universen voller Leben und Universen, die plötzlich aufhören zu existieren. Eine spektakuläre Reise in die fantastischen Welten der modernen Kosmologie – und an die Grenzen unseres eigenen Vorstellungsvermögens.

Im Jahre 1971 macht sich eine Gruppe junger amerikanischer Anthropologen und Botaniker auf ins Amazonasgebiet, um die Wirkung von halluzinogenen Pflanzen auf das Weltbild der eingeborenen Schamanen zu erforschen. Die Einnahme dort wachsender Psilocybin-Pilze versetzt zwei von ihnen, Terence McKenna und seinen Bruder Dennis, selbst in den Zustand, den sie an visionssuchenden Schamanen untersuchen wollten. Dieses Erlebnis überzeugte McKenna, dass die Welt der ekstatischen Trance des Schamanen, die visionäre Welt des Psilocybins und die Welt, in der man Ausserirdische antrifft, verschiedene Aspekte ein und derselben paradoxen Realität sind. In den Jahren danach festigte sich seine Ansicht, dass man Psilocybin dazu benutzen kann, das Verhältnis von Geist und dem Unbekannten zu erforschen. Als Forscher einer neuen Generation erkundete er die nicht rationalen Teile der Psyche und entwickelte mit Hilfe seiner rationalen wissenschaftlichen Ausbildung eine "Quantenpsychologie". Sein Buch liest sich so spannend wie ein Bericht über die Erkundung eines fremden Kontinents.
