In both ancient tradition and modern research Pythagoreanism has been understood as a religious sect or as a philosophical and scientific community. Numerous attempts have been made to reconcile these pictures as well as to analyze them separately. The most recent scholarship compartmentalizes different facets of Pythagorean knowledge, but this offers no context for exploring their origins, development, and interdependence. This collection aims to reverse this trend, addressing connections between the different fields of Pythagorean knowledge, such as eschatology, metempsychosis, metaphysics, epistemology, arithmology and numerology, music, dietetics and medicine as well as politics. In particular, the contributions discuss how the Pythagorean way of life related to more doctrinal aspects of knowledge, such as Pythagorean religion and science. The volume explores the effects of this interdependence between different kinds of knowledge both within the Pythagorean corpus and in its later reception. Chapters cover historical periods from the Archaic Period (6th century BC) to Neoplatonism, Early Christianity, the European and Arabic Middle Ages, and the Renaissance through to the Early Modern Period (17th century AD).

´´Critical (intensive) care was born and remains a multi-disciplinary specialty. This is obvious in two facets of critical care: (a) it integrates knowl¬edge and practices from many medical specialties (trauma, transplant medicine, cardiology, pulmonary medicine, anesthesiology and pain medicine, and many others); and (b) it requires the close collaboration of medical professionals from many specialties (physicians, nurses, physiotherapists, respiratory therapists, nutritionists, pharmacists, etc.). To achieve this, critical care professionals must be masters of communi¬cation, team building, management, and possess the most up-to-date clinical knowledge´´--

Learn how to advance your skill level of Haskell, and use this language for practical web development. This book uses a direct, no nonsense approach, so you no longer need to spend extra time reading the documentation, blog posts, and forums to understand how to use Haskell - all that knowledge is provided in one coherent resource. You´ll start by reviewing how multiple facets of web development are done in Haskell, such as routing, building HTMLs, interacting with databases, caches, and queues, etc. You´ll then move on to using notable libraries, such as ´´scotty´´ for routings, ´´digestive-functor´´ for input validation, and ´´postgresql-simple´´ for interacting with databases. In the later chapters, you´ll learn how all of these libraries can be used together by working on a fully functioning project deployed on Heroku. What You´ll Learn Set up a productive Haskell development environment Review basic tasks that are encountered when building web applications. Explore how to interact with external systems, such as databases, queues, and RESTful APIs. Build a RESTful API, website, building views and form validation. Who This Book Is For Software developers familiar Haskell and would like to apply the knowledge on real world applications and software developers new to Haskell.
