This book explores the captivating colors that appear in the atmosphere of the earth: coronas, glories, halos, rainbows, dawn and dusk. Using the holistic observational method developed by Goethe in his Theory of Color, this book offers the reader a new way of relating to atmospheric colours. In its attempt to bridge the wide span between the physics of atmospheric colours and a spiritual approach to them, the path of unfolding descriptions and thoughts becomes artistic in itself. Extraordinary photographs and references to modern literature and websites round out the work. The book should prove helpful to scientists looking for a different approach to optics or an introduction to Goethe's phenomenological science, to teachers seeking a new approach to optics lessons, and to anyone who loves these colours and wishes to deepen their relationship to them.

‘Concern for the world today provides the impetus to ask of ourselves a profound question… how can our way of knowing, the very style of our thinking which informs our research and our teaching, come to express care, to reveal itself to be a deed and duty of care?’ Basing this practical study on the human quality of care for the world around us, Nigel Hoffmann takes us to a threshold beyond which lies a true science of living form. Care, he says, springs from the whole human being – the thinking, heart and will – and is implicit in the sci­entific method of conscious inner participation in nature that derives from the work of the poet and scientist Goethe. The Goethean approach – a living form that unites science and art – is not an alternative to contemporary science but complements it. Artistic practice, says Hoffmann, is a guide across the threshold and into the sphere of the living whole. But artistic sensibility can be raised to a higher possibility of itself, allowing us to discover the faculties of cognitive feeling and cognitive will. The author calls for a grounding in Goethean science for all students as a preliminary to their specialist and professional studies. He introduces us to the concept of the metamorphosis of the university – from the doctoral ideal to the ideal of the whole human being – and concludes with a case study of the economic sphere and capital using Goethean methodology. This profound book indicates a transformative path for human culture and civilization in the 21st century.

The Wilderness Cookbook

The Wilderness Cookbook

I have seen many more since – at dawn, at dusk, and even in the middle of the
day. I've looked upon the ring of a Brocken spectre – when your shadow is cast
on clouds with a rainbow halo (known as a 'glory') appearing around your head.

Following on from the huge success of her previous titles, Wilderness Weekends (2015) and Britain's Best Small Hills (2016), outdoor guru Phoebe Smith returns with her top tips about wilderness cooking on a single stove, including fifty recipes for breakfast, lunch, dinner, dessert and snacks. She also adds that secret extra ingredient to each recipe - an incredible sense of place, from moorland to coast, woodland, mountains or riverside. This innovative title is packed with advice on how to get the most out of walking in wild places, wild camping and wild cooking. Heading out into the wilds is incredible, but the food you eat when you go wild can be unimaginative - all pre-packed, dehydrated camping meals crammed with salt and colouring. This book, the first written specifically for wild campers, teaches you the tricks to make the tastiest food with limited ingredients and all at the lightest weight so that you can be assured of good food that won't break your back. Bradt's Wilderness Cookbook also includes countryside safety tips, information about understanding the countryside and suggestions and instructions for things to make on the fly, be it an item of cutlery or a driftwood den. The basics of foraging are also covered, from using sphagnum moss to clean your pots to finding cockles to add to your stew or bilberries to mix into your porridge. No matter where you are, what type of terrain you're covering or what season it is, this inspirational new title will have a recipe to fit the moment, from Deviled Eggs in Disguise or Lemon & Cinnamon Muffins for breakfast to Brilliant Burritos or Cracking Couscous for lunch, Rosemary & Garlic Mushrooms for dinner and, to round off, Real Ale Pancakes or Baked Apple & Ginger Bombs for dessert. With Bradt's Wilderness Cookbook, you can ensure the wild food you prepare offers maximum taste and energy for minimum kit, weight and hassle

We live in a world of optical marvels - from the commonplace but beautiful rainbow, to the rare and eerie superior mirage. But how many of us really understand how a rainbow is formed, why the setting sun is red and flattened, or even why the sky at night is not absolutely black? This beautiful and informative guide provides clear explanations to all naturally occurring optical phenomena seen with the naked eye, including shadows, halos, water optics, mirages and a host of other spectacles. Separating myth from reality, it outlines the basic principles involved, and supports them with many figures and references. A wealth of rare and spectacular photographs, many in full color, illustrate the phenomena throughout. In this new edition of the highly-acclaimed guide to seeing, photographing and understanding nature's optical delights, the authors have added over 50 new images and provided new material on experiments you can try yourself.

All of science springs from the observation of nature. In this classic book, the late Professor Minnaert accompanies the reader on a tour of nature's light and color and reveals the myriad phenomena that may be observed outdoors with no more than a pair of eyes and an enquiring mind. From the intriguing shape of the dapples beneath a tree on a sunny day, via rainbows, mirages, and haloes, the colors of liquid, ice, and the sky, to the appearance of the sun, moon, planets, and stars - Minnaert describes and explains them all in a clear language accessible to laymen. This new English edition is supplemented by 80 plates, over half of them in color, taken by the acclaimed photographer Pekka Parviainen, illustrating many of the phenomena - ordinary and exotic - discussed in the book.

Well-trained and basically a decent man, he settles in to wait for rescue in a fashion that will do his military training credit.
