Beiträge zur Verbraucherforschung (Reihe in 2 Bänden)
Aus Band 1: Die Aufmerksamkeit der Öffentlichkeit wurde lange durch die Privatsphäre in sozialen Netzwerken und das Tracking der Online-Werbewirtschaft gebunden, weil dies die sichtbare Seite des Verbraucherdatenschutzes ist. Die Beiträge des ersten Bandes der "Beiträge zur Verbraucherforschung" rücken einen zukunftsweisenden Trend ins Blickfeld der interdisziplinären Verbraucherforschung und der verbraucherpolitischen Akteure: die Informatisierung des Alltags. Im Zentrum der Beiträge steht die Frage, ob und wie die Datensouveränität der Verbraucherinnen und Verbraucher unter den Bedingungen des Konsums im Internet, der Nutzung digitaler Dienste und in einer vernetzten Welt erhalten, wiederhergestellt oder gestärkt werden kann.

Mit Beiträgen von

Prof. Dr. Britta Böckmann, Prof. Dr. Rainer Böhme und Sebastian Luhn, MSc, Prof. Dr. Georg Borges und Dipl.-Jur. Sascha Adler, Prof. Dr. Ulrich Greveler, Prof. Dr. Artus Krohn-Grimberghe und Prof. Dr. Christoph Sorge.

Walden (AmazonClassics Edition)

At Walden Pond, Henry David Thoreau reflected on simpler living in the natural world. By removing himself from the distractions of materialism, Thoreau hoped to not only improve his spiritual life but also gain a better understanding of society through solitary introspection.

In Walden, Thoreau condenses his two-year, two-month, two-day stay into a single year, using the four seasons to symbolize human development—a cycle of life shared by both nature and man. A celebration of personal renewal through self-reliance, independence, and simplicity, composed for all of us living in “quiet desperation,” Walden is eternal.

Revised edition: Previously published as Walden, this edition of Walden (AmazonClassics Edition) includes editorial revisions.

Everything Flows: Towards a Processual Philosophy of Biology
This is an open access title available under the terms of a CC BY-NC-ND 4.0 International licence. It is free to read at Oxford Scholarship Online and offered as a free PDF download from OUP and selected open access locations.

Everything Flows explores the metaphysical thesis that the living world is not made up of substantial particles or things, as has often been supposed, but is rather constituted by processes. The biological domain is organised as an interdependent hierarchy of processes, which are stabilized and actively maintained at different timescales. Even entities that intuitively appear to be paradigms of things, such as organisms, are actually better understood as processes. Unlike previous
attempts to articulate processual views of biology, which have tended to use Alfred North Whitehead's panpsychist metaphysics as a foundation, this book takes a naturalistic approach to metaphysics. It submits that the main motivations for replacing an ontology of substances with one of processes are to be found
in the empirical findings of science. Biology provides compelling reasons for thinking that the living realm is fundamentally dynamic, and that the existence of things is always conditional on the existence of processes. The phenomenon of life cries out for theories that prioritise processes over things, and it suggests that the central explanandum of biology is not change but rather stability, or more precisely, stability attained through constant change. This edited volume brings together
philosophers of science and metaphysicians interested in exploring the prospects of a processual philosophy of biology. The contributors draw on an extremely wide range of biological case studies, and employ a process perspective to cast new light on a number of traditional philosophical problems, such
as identity, persistence, and individuality.
