Woher kommen wir? Was sind wir? Wohin gehen wir? Der große Biologe E. O. Wilson entschlüsselt die Evolution des Menschen Die soziale Eroberung der Erde ist die Summe lebenslanger innovativer Forschung, die Krönung des Lebenswerkes von Edward O. Wilson. Seine weitreichende These: Die soziale Gruppe und nicht das egoistische Gen war der entscheidende Faktor der Menschwerdung. "Keinem außer Edward O. Wilson konnte eine derart brillante Synthese aus Biologie und Geisteswissenschaften gelingen, die Licht wirft auf den Ursprung von Sprache, Religion, Kunst und der gesamten menschlichen Kultur." Oliver Sacks "Eine große, doch einfache Fragestellung, überzeugende Erklärungen, eine meisterhafte Beherrschung der Wissenschaft und eine anschauliche, verständliche Darstellung einmal mehr hat E.O. Wilson ein Buch geschrieben mit den Qualitäten, die ihm Pulitzerpreise und ein Millionenpublikum eingebracht haben." Jared Diamond "Ein fabelhaftes Buch." Bill Clinton

Das Bienenvolk übt eine starke Faszination auf den Menschen aus. Das gilt heute noch genauso wie in früheren Zeiten. Bilder und Schriften erzählen vom Mythos Bienenvolk, von der Auseinandersetzung mit diesem Himmelswesen und dem unschätzbaren Wert von Honig und Wachs. Durch das Bienensterben ist das Thema wieder vermehrt ins Zentrum des öffentlichen Bewusstseins gelangt.Aus Rudolf Steiners Ausführungen vor den Arbeitern am Goetheanum ist eine Vortragsfolge entstanden, die dem Wesen der Bienen gewidmet ist. Die Vorträge sind hier als Ganzes integriert, sie bilden das Gerüst dieses Buches. Um die Vorträge herum sind einige Themen der Vorträge aus heutiger Sicht kommentiert. Zu einem besseren Verständnis sind sie mit Passagen aus dem Gesamtwerk ergänzt worden. Die Faszination der Vorträge liegt in ihrer Vielschichtigkeit, eröffnen sie doch ganz neue, beeindruckende Zugänge zum Wesen der Bienen.

A huge draw on the "2013 National Geographic Live" lecture series, the author shares the passion that led to her world record in mountaineering - First woman-and only the fourth climber ever-to summit all fourteen 8,000-meter peaks without supplemental oxygen or high-altitude porters - Though the two climbers are friends, Kaltenbrunner's path to high places has been very different from Edurne Pasaban's record-breaking feat - Positive, uplifting account of a remarkable athleteEffusive, charismatic, tough, Gerlinde Kaltenbrunner is one of the world's most successful high-altitude mountaineers and the first woman to climb all fourteen 8,000-meter peaks without supplemental oxygen-and she also eschews high-altitude porters. Mountains of My Heart covers her early years learning to climb in Austria, her personal life, her training as an oncology nurse, and her ever-present passion for mountains, especially the Himalaya. Her love of being in the mountains shines through in her writing: For Gerlinde the important thing was not the race to be the first woman to climb the 8,000-meter peaks, but rather to experience the mountains and climb them in her self-sufficient style. Self-sufficiency did not, however, mean climbing without her husband, Ralf Dujmovits; in 2009, Lhotse became her twelfth and his fourteenth 8,000-meter peak! Kaltenbrunner shares the challenges, dangers, and euphoria of her high-altitude climbs, detailing medical emergencies and her own feelings about being high in the mountains. Her writing is honest, captivating, and unrestrained.
