Generation A is set in the near future in a world where bees are extinct, until five unconnected people all around the world— in the United States, Canada, France, New Zealand, and Sri Lanka—are all stung. Their shared experience unites them in ways they never could have imagined. Generation A mirrors Coupland’s debut novel, 1991’s Generation X. It explores new ways of storytelling in a digital world. Like much of Coupland’s writing, it occupies the perplexing hinterland between optimism about the future and everyday apocalyptic paranoia. Imaginative, inventive, and fantastically entertaining, Generation A is his most ambitious work to date.

The Power of Un
Author: Nancy Etchemendy
Everyone knows the almost magical power of the computer’s “undo” command that can erase any mistake. Well, thanks to a device called the “under”, middle-school student Gib Finney can do the same thing in real life. At first he thinks this is better than winning the lottery: he’ll never fail another test, never lose another bet, never strike out in a ball-game again! But after a terrible accident, Gib must decide which events in a two-day period he needs to change to prevent disaster. Was the key when he and his friend Ash saw signs advertising a carnival? Or was it when he argued with Rainy Rogner about their experiment? Or perhaps when he shot a spitball at the math teacher? Gib soon learns that some things are more worthy of “inning” than others, and that some events may be impossible to change at all.
Debugging is crucial to successful software development, but even many experienced programmers find it challenging. Sophisticated debugging tools are available, yet it may be difficult to determine which features are useful in which situations. The Art of Debugging is your guide to making the debugging process more efficient and effective. The Art of Debugging illustrates the use three of the most popular debugging tools on Linux/Unix platforms: GDB, DDD, and Eclipse. The text-command based GDB (the GNU Project Debugger) is included with most distributions. DDD is a popular GUI front end for GDB, while Eclipse provides a complete integrated development environment. In addition to offering specific advice for debugging with each tool, authors Norm Matloff and Pete Salzman cover general strategies for improving the process of finding and fixing coding errors, including how to: –Inspect variables and data structures –Understand segmentation faults and core dumps –Know why your program crashes or throws exceptions –Use features like catchpoints, convenience variables, and artificial arrays –Avoid common debugging pitfalls Real world examples of coding errors help to clarify the authors’ guiding principles, and coverage of complex topics like thread, client-server, GUI, and parallel programming debugging will make you even more proficient. You'll also learn how to prevent errors in the first place with text editors, compilers, error reporting, and static code checkers. Whether you dread the thought of debugging your programs or simply want to improve your current debugging efforts, you'll find a valuable ally in The Art of Debugging.
The imposing scope and penetrating insights of German philosopher Nicolai Hartmann’s work have received renewed interest in recent years. The papers collected in this volume explore his ethics, ontology, aesthetics, and philosophy of nature, bringing his philosophy into conversation with that of his peers, the history of philosophy, and with contemporary philosophical trends, from philosophy of science and bioethics, to psychology and education.

Space in Hellenistic Philosophy
Author: Graziano Ranocchia, Christoph Helmig, Christoph Horn
Publisher: Walter de Gruyter GmbH & Co KG
The volume discusses the notion of space by focusing on the most representative exponents of the Hellenistic schools and explores the role played by spatial concepts in both coeval and later authors who, without specifically thematising these concepts, made use of them in a theoretically original way. Renowned scholars investigate the philosophical significance and bring to light the problematical character of the ancient conceptions of space.
Wittgenstein on Colour
Author: Frederik A. Gierlinger, Štefan Riegelnik
Publisher: Walter de Gruyter GmbH & Co KG
This volume is the first collection of articles dedicated to Wittgenstein’s thoughts on colour, focusing in particular on his so-called Remarks on Colour, a piece of writing that has received comparably little attention from Wittgenstein scholars. The articles discuss why Wittgenstein wrote so intensively about colour during the last years of his life and what significance these remarks have for understanding his philosophical work in general.
The book consists of a series of chapters on Carnap's ideal of explication as an alternative to the naturalistic conceptions of science, setting it in its historical context, discussing specific cases of explications, and enriching the on-going debate on conceptual engineering and naturalism in analytic philosophy.
