Ein rostiger alter Bus im Garten des Großvaters und seine Bienen werden für Meredith ihr einziger Halt. Denn sie ist erst fünf, als sie von ihren Eltern nach deren Trennung vollkommen sich selbst überlassen wird. Der Großvater nimmt sie mit in die faszinierende Welt der Bienen – und rettet ihr so das Leben. Die Bienen werden Meredith zur Ersatzfamilie: Wenn sie sich verlassen fühlt, zeigen sie ihr, wie man zusammenhält und füreinander sorgt. Wenn sie über ihre depressive Mutter verzweifelt, bewundert sie die Bienen dafür, ihre Königin einfach austauschen zu können. Die Bienen lehren Meredith, anderen zu vertrauen, mutig zu sein und ihren eigenen Weg zu gehen. »Der Honigbus« ist eine starke Geschichte über das Leben und die Weisheiten der Natur.

First published in 1943, “Animal Breeding Plans” contains a detailed guide on animal breeding designed for students with experience of genetics, embryology, breeds, and stock judging. It aims to furnish the reader with a clear understanding of the means available for improving the heredity of farm animals, especially what each possible method will or will not do well. Highly recommended for modern farmers and animal breeders. Contents include: “Origin and Domestication of Farm Animals”, “Consequences of Domestication”, “Beginning of Pedigree Breeding Methods in the United States”, “History of Animal Breeding Methods in the United States”, “Relation of the Breed Association to Breed Improvement”, “Genetic Principles in Animal Breeding”, “Mendelian Basis of Inheritance”, etc. Many vintage books such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive. It is with this in mind that we are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially-commissioned new introduction on farming.
Die Analogie von Vernunft und Natur
Language: de
Pages: 259
Authors: Angela Breitenbach
Categories: Philosophy
Type: BOOK - Published: 2009-08-17 - Publisher: Walter de Gruyter
Angesichts der zunehmenden Zerstörung der Natur durch den Menschen und der technischen Fortschritte in den Biowissenschaften hat die Frage nach dem Verhältnis des Menschen zu seiner natürlichen Umwelt höchste Aktualität. Ausgehend von der Naturphilosophie Kants entwickelt Angela Breitenbach einen Ansatz zu einer modernen Umweltphilosophie, die einen Beitrag zu aktuellen Debatten in der Umweltethik und der Philosophie der Biologie liefert. Die Autorin zeigt, dass Kants Ansatz sich nicht auf die mechanistische Perspektive beschränkt, sondern auch eine teleologische entwickelt. Beide bestehen notwendig nebeneinander und sind aufeinander angewiesen. Das Buch stellt heraus, dass die teleologische Naturbetrachtung, die sich in einer Analogie mit dem zwecktätigen Vernunftvermögen des Menschen gründet, zentrale Bedeutung nicht nur für ein umfassendes Naturverständnis, sondern auch für die wissenschaftliche Erforschung von Lebendigem und für unseren praktischen Umgang mit der Natur hat.
