Toleration on Trial
Toleration on Trial offers the only multidisciplinary study available on the issue of toleration, bringing together political psychologists, philosophers, sociologists, Islamic scholars, and political theorists to examine the most pressing debates in the field. The volume addresses the toleration question from a number of angles: toleration and its application to gay rights; Islam and toleration; institutional, ideological, and psychological preconditions for its practice; and philosophical and conceptual arguments for the principle of toleration.

The common thread running throughout the volume is the core question: Is toleration primarily a product of institutional arrangements, or is it an attitude of individuals? To answer this adequately, the authors believe that a contemporary analysis of the possibility, significance and requirements of toleration must be fully cognizant of the democratic, or more accurately―politically mobilized―background in which toleration becomes a difficult issue. Conflicts between deeply divided groups within nations and between groups across political boundaries pose the issue of threat and risk to a practice or way of life that many peoples find difficult to accept.

Can the idea and practice of toleration manage these in politically and ethically defensible ways? These essays address various aspects of the aim to establish or strengthen toleration among politically mobilized groups, in a context of contemporary democratic challenges.

Duino Elegies (English and German Edition)
We have a marvelous, almost legendary, image of the circumstances in which the composition of this great poem began. Rilke was staying at a castle (Duino) on the sea near Trieste. One morning he walked out on the battlements and climbed down to where the rocks dropped sharply to the sea. From out of the wind, which was blowing with great force, Rilke seemed to hear a voice: Wer, wenn ich schriee, horte mich denn aus der Engel Ordnungen? (If I cried out, who would hear me up there, among the angelic orders?). He wrote these words, the opening of the first Duino Elegy, in his notebook, then went inside to continue what was to be his major work and one of the literary masterpieces of the century.

Greedoids (Algorithms & Combinatorics)
With the advent of computers, algorithmic principles play an ever increasing role in mathematics. Algorithms have to exploit the structure of the underlying mathematical object; and properties exploited by algorithms are often closely tied to classical structural analysis in mathematics. This connection between algorithms and structure is in particular apparent in discrete mathematics, where proofs are often constructive, and can be turned into algorithms more directly. The principle of greediness plays a fundamental role both in the design of continuous algorithms (where it is called the steepest descent or gradient method) and of discrete algorithms. The discrete structure most closely related to greediness is a matroid; in fact, matroids may be characterized axiomatically as those independence systems for which the greedy solution is optimal for certain optimization problems (e.g. linear objective functions, bottleneck functions). This book is an attempt to unify different approaches and to lead the reader from fundamental results in matroid theory to the current borderline of open research problems. The monograph begins by reviewing classical concepts from matroid theroy and extending them to greedoids. It then proceeds to the discussion of subclasses like interval greedoids, antimatroids or convex geometries, greedoids on partically ordered sets and greedoid intersections. Emphasis is placed on optimization problems in greedois. An algorithmic characterization of greedoids in terms of the greedy algorithm is derived, the behaviour with respect to linear functions is investigated, the shortest path problem for graphs is extended to a class of greedoids, linear descriptions of antimatroid polyhedra and complexity results are given and the Rado-Hall theorem on transversals is generalized. The self-contained volume which assumes only a basic familarity with combinatorial optimization ends with a chapter on topological results in connection with greedoids.

Inflectionist Review Anthology of Poetry
Inflectionist Review is a small press publishing stark and distinctive contemporary poetry that fosters dialog between the reader and writer, between words and their meanings, between ambiguity and concept. Each issue gathers established and emerging voices together toward the shared aim of unique expression that resonates beyond the author s world, beyond the page, and speaks to the universality of human language and experience. Inflectionism is an artistic movement that began in 2010 by three Portland, Oregon area poets who sought a more organic poetry that respected both poet and reader, both words and interpretation. As a creative philosophy, Inflectionism seeks to build upon what has come before.
