This edition collects the philosophical treatises from the diverse works of Hermann von Helmholtz, focusing particularly on the philosophy of science and epistemology. Included as well are lectures and speeches in which the author used his exceptional position in the scientific world to represent and motivate the sciences and their institutions in the form we recognize today. Though Helmholtz did not seek to be a philosopher, he attached great importance to the philosophical reflection of scientific knowledge and action. In particular, he regularly referred in various contexts to the epistemological and methodological problems of science that arose in his own research efforts. The interwoven nature of basic research in the natural sciences and basic philosophical reflection in Helmholtz's work is already noticeable in Ueber die Erhaltung der Kraft (1847). His empirical theory of perception, which emerged from earlier psychophysiological research, earned him the reputation of being a significant advocate of Neo-Kantianism. However, later works on particularly geometry and arithmetic represents - as the present edition shows - a radical rejection of the constitutive core of Kantianism (i.e. the existence of synthetic a priori judgments). Helmholtz's philosophical contributions have not, until now, been nearly as accessible as his work in the natural sciences. This edition contains, in addition to his philosophical work, bibliographical reports concerning classification, a detailed register of names and subject matter, as well as the first comprehensive bibliography of works written by Helmholtz, with over 575 entries corresponding to the period of 1842-2012. Hermann von Helmholtz (1821-1894) is considered to be one of the last polymaths to have lived. He began studying medicine and taught as professor for physiology in Berlin, Königsberg, Bonn, and Heidelberg before becoming a full professor in physics in Berlin. Helmholtz held a lifelong interest for the relationships / connections between the most varied fields of natural science research. His work encompassed not only a theoretical nature, but also included experimental practice and application of results as well.

The'4thCologne-Bonn-ZermattSymposium:TheDenseInterstellarMedium in Galaxies' took place in Zermatt, Switzerland, from September 22nd to 26th, 2003. This symposium continued the series of conferences on the dense interstellar medium which has been organized every 5 years since 1988 by the I. Physikalisches Institut der Unversit¿ at ¿ zuKoln. ¿ Re?ecting the by now well established and fruitful collaboration between the MPI ffur ¿ ¿ Radioastronomie, the Radioastronomisches Institut der Universit¿ at ¿ Bonn and the I. Physikal- ches Institut der Universit¿ at ¿ zu Koln ¿ in the context of the Sonderforschun- bereich 494 'The Evolution of Interstellar Matter: THz-Spectroscopy in the Laboratory and in Space', the symposium is now organized jointly by these three institutes. The conference covered a wide range of topics: starting at the largest scales and earliest times in the history of the Universe, it focussed next on galaxy evolution and their structure and dynamics. New and very exciting results on the black hole in the center of the Milky Way and the violent ISM in its immediate vicinity were presented. It continued on the cosmic cycle of star formation and evolution, and reached down to the microphysical p- cesses determining the physical and chemical conditions of the interstellar matter as the important agent for this cosmic cycle.

The International Conference on Quark Nuclear Physics 2002 (QNP2002) was held in the Forschungszentrum Jiilich from June 9 to 14, 2002. It was organized by the Institute of Nuclear Physics (IKP) at the Forschungszentrum Jiilich, together with the Universities of Bonn und Mainz. This meeting takes place every two years, and was the successor to QNP2000 which was held in Adelaide. QNP2002 brought together about 200 scientists from 25 countries who met for their scientific work in the Forschungszentrum, but spent their free time in the medieval city of Aachen, the former capital of Charles the Great. The particular feature of this conference is that it provides a comprehensive overview of the at tempts in understanding hadrons and nuclei, including dense matter, in terms of their fundamental constituents, the quarks and the gluons. One of the basic themes of the program was that fact that we do have an underlying theory of strongly interacting particles, namely the QCD. For that rea son, the experimental topics covered during the meeting ranged from precision measurements with hadronic and electromagnetic probes to ultra-relativistic heavy-ion reactions. Correspondingly, the theoretical topics spanned an equally wide range, including perturbative and lattice QCD calcu lations as well as effective theories and QCD motivated quark models. In the morning sessions invited reviews were given. In the afternoon twelve topical parallel sessions, directed by conveners, summarized the newest research results.

Theoretical Optics

Filling the gap between optics textbooks for students and scientific literature in optics, this revised and enlarged second edition provides a solid yet concise introduction to the topic. Starting from basic electrodynamics, it comprises nonlinear optics and light-matter interaction, as well as modern topics in quantum optics, including entanglement, cryptography, and quantum computation. With over thirty years of experience in research and teaching theoretical optics, the author goes way beyond the scope of traditional lectures, enabling readers to keep up with the current state of knowledge. Both in terms of content and presentation, this is essential reading for graduate and PhD students and a valuable reference for researchers. From the Contents: - Crystal optics - Nonlinear optics - Geometrical optics - Diffraction theory - Holography - Coherence theory - Interaction of radiation and matter - Quantum optics and fundamental quantum theory Hartmann Römer received his Ph.D. degree from the University of Bonn in 1970, where he also completed his habilitation. He held Postdoc positions at the Weizmann Institute of Science in Rehovot, Israel, and at CERN in Geneva. He has been full professor for Theoretical Physics at the University of Freiburg since 1979. His research interests include particle theory and quantum field theory, in particular geometrical and topological methods: symplectic geometry, quantization theory, classical limit and short wave asymptotics.

Brain Death of an Idea

It is a matter of scientific debate to what extent intelligence is hereditary. However, in a relatively broad part of the public the opinion prevails that intelligence is to a large extent hereditary, which means that it can only be minimally improved through social intervention. The book presents the scientific methods for determining heritability in the individual. It is clear from these methods that there can be no general value for heritability of intelligence, and that a heritability value says practically nothing as to the extent to which intelligence can be altered. The volume traces the history of research on the heritability of intelligence. The discipline is manifestly plagued by dubious practices and has caused social damage on a large scale, for example in the context of eugenics, immigration or education policy. Prof. Dr. Manfred Velden studierte Psychologie an den Universitäten Bonn und Berkley (University of California). Als Professor an den Universitäten Mainz, Berlin (TU) und Osnabrück vertrat er die Fächer Wahrnehmungspsychologie, Biologische Psychologie und Psychosomatik.
