In a globalised society, dance is gaining in importance as a means of conveying body knowledge: It is perceived as an art form in itself, is fostered and cultivated within the bounds of cultural and educational policy, and is increasingly becoming the subject of research. Dance is in motion all over the world, and with it the knowledge that it holds. But what does body knowledge in motion constitute, how is it produced, how can it be researched and conveyed? Renowned choreographers, dancers, theorists and pedagogues describe the unique potential of dance as an archive and medium as well as its significance at the interface between art and science.Contributors are, among others, Gabriele Brandstetter, Dieter Heitkamp, Royston Maldoom and Meg Stuart.

The series Studies and Texts in Scepticism contains monographs, translations, and collected essays exploring scepticism in its dual manifestation as a purely philosophical tradition and as a set of sceptical strategies, concepts, and attitudes in the cultural field - especially in religions, perhaps most notably in Judaism. In such cultural contexts scepticism manifests as a critical attitude towards different dimensions and systems of secular or revealed knowledge and towards religious and political authorities. It is not merely an intellectual or theoretical worldview, but a critical form of life that expresses itself in such diverse phenomena as religion, literature, and society. Further book series of the Maimonides Centre for Advanced Studies are Jewish Thought, Philosophy, and Religion and the Yearbook of the Maimonides Centre for Advances Studies.

How do we know what we ´´know´´? How did we as individuals and as a society come to accept certain knowledge as fact? In Human Knowledge, Bertrand Russell questions the reliability of our assumptions on knowledge. This brilliant and controversial work investigates the relationship between individual and scientific knowledge. First published in 1948, this provocative work contributed significantly to an explosive intellectual discourse that continues to this day.
Knowledge Discovery in Databases (KDD) ist ein aktuelles Forschungs- und Anwendungsgebiet der Informatik. Ziel des KDD ist es, selbständig entscheidungsrelevante, aber bisher unbekannte Zusammenhänge und Verknüpfungen in den Daten großer Datenmengen zu entdecken und dem Analysten oder dem Anwender in übersichtlicher Form zu präsentieren. Die Autoren stellen die Techniken und Anwendungen dieses interdisziplinären Gebiets anschaulich dar.
