Thomas Hubauer addresses the challenge of providing reasonable interpretations of incomplete observational data in the context of imperfect domain models – a situation often encountered in the context of industrial diagnostics. To tackle this problem, the author proposes a novel approach called Relaxed Abduction, which is able to derive pragmatic interpretations in situations where existing methods either fail or provide overly complex solutions. To strengthen the link to applications in industrial diagnostics, he develops a methodology to structure diagnosis problems according to ISO 13379 and express it using multiple description logic knowledge bases.
This book reconstructs the theory of signification implicit in Aristotle’s De Interpretatione and its psychological background in his De Anima. The study develops in three steps that correspond to the three elements involved in every notion of signification: (1) the phonetic element or significans, called phônê by Aristotle, (2) the significatum, i. e. what the phonetic material stands for, and (3) the relation between significans and significatum. This work breaks new ground by connecting the linguistic and psychological aspects of Aristotle’s theory of signification.
Taking into account aspects of semantic world models and graph databases, Nico Hempe presents concepts for a new class of modern Multi-Domain VR Simulation Systems based on the principles of the research field of eRobotics. Nico Hempe not only shows how to overcome structural differences between rendering and simulation frameworks to allow attractive and intuitive representations of the generated results, he also demonstrates ways to enable rendering-supported simulations. The outcome is an intuitive multi-purpose development tool for multiple applications, ranging from industrial domains over environmental scenarios up to space robotics.

Life Configurations focuses on the analysis and reflection on the various forms in which human beings imagine, design, conjecture, and plan their “becoming”, that is to say their lives. Case studies written by an interdisciplinary circle of well-known academics explore how the capacity of designing life, the concept of free will, and the methods to calculate the future have been changed and adopted in different societies and in different ages.
This book constitutes the proceedings of the 20th International Conference on Logic for Programming, Artificial Intelligence, and Reasoning, LPAR-20, held in November 2015, in Suva, Fiji. The 43 regular papers presented together with 1 invited talk included in this volume were carefully reviewed and selected from 92 submissions. The series of International Conferences on Logic for Programming, Artificial Intelligence and Reasoning, LPAR, is a forum where, year after year, some of the most renowned researchers in the areas of logic, automated reasoning, computational logic, programming languages and their applications come to present cutting-edge results, to discuss advances in these fields, and to exchange ideas in a scientifically emerging part of the world.
Handy, compact phrasebook for pocket or purse.

Emerging from the contested site of a new university campus, educators reflect upon the transformative process of reconceptualising and rebuilding a faculty of education in the twenty-first century. Contested Sites in Education seeks to improve an understanding of and conversations about the nature, meaning and significance of higher education’s public service within the scope of a democratic society. This volume offers educators and students a praxis-oriented, hope-infused, contemplative approach to conceiving, developing and in some cases, returning to public service and public identity in the twenty-first century. Contested Sites in Education will prepare future leaders who thoroughly understand, consciously apply and intentionally use democracy, selfknowledge, cultural knowledge, habits of mind, reflective learning communities and advocacy in their professional lives.
On December 13, 1933, the Kulturwissenschaftliche Bibliothek Warburg left its home in Hamburg and went into exile in London, salvaging the books and painting collection of its founder Aby Warburg. The scholarly arrival of the Kulturwissenschaftliche Bibliothek in the intellectual life of the British metropolis, which, in 1944, finally resulted in the integration of the Warburg Institute in the University of London, started an ongoing process of intellectual exchange between German and English research traditions that is still going on today. Essays by internationally renowned scholars, among them many witnesses to the Warburg Institute's intellectual work of the early years, are dedicated to how the intellectual approach of the Kulturwissenschaftliche Bibliothek contributed to the English scholar community. The publication also examines how the move to London affected the research of the K.B.W. and how it made the Warburg Institute one of the world's most important humanities research facilities.
