English summary: Radio is a medium in flux, malleable and ever changing. For the past 90 years it has specialised in artistic, documentation and direct acoustic representations of the world. Mobility, openness and the chance to reach a vast audience has drawn artists to the radio since its beginnings. How the Horspiel, a polyartistic medium of Radio's own creation, offers the other art forms a field of play, was one of the themes of the symposium, which, promoted by the Kulturstiftung des Bundes, took place in Karlsruhe in November 2013. The question was also raised how the other arts - literature, theatre, visual arts, new music, opera - approach the acoustic. Choreography of Sound intends to put the Horspiel in context with other art forms. In this meeting of multiple disciplines the aesthetic possibilities of the acoustic can be explored and new developments identified. Horspiel practicioners meet sound-poets, theoreticians, dramaturgs, authors, composers and performance artists whose work crosses the traditional borders of genre. German description: Das Radio, seit neunzig Jahren spezialisiert auf die kunstlerische, dokumentarische oder realitatsabbildende Reprasentation der Welt durch das akustisch Gestaltete, ist das Chamaleon unter den Medien: flink und standig wandelbar. Die Beweglichkeit, Offenheit und Breitenwirkung des Radios hat Kunstler seit jeher angezogen. Welche Spielraume nun das Horspiel, die ureigenste Form des Radios, als polyartistisches Medium anderen Kunstsparten bietet, war eines der Themen des Symposiums, das, gefordert von der Kulturstiftung des Bundes, wahrend der 10. ARD-Horspieltage im November 2013 in Karlsruhe stattfand.In dem Band, der die wichtigsten Vortrage des Symposiums wiedergibt, wird danach gefragt, wie andere Kunste - Literatur, Theater, Bildende Kunst, Neue Musik, Oper - sich dem Akustischen zuwenden. In der Begegnung verschiedener Disziplinen werden die asthetischen Moglichkeiten des Akustischen ausgelotet und neuere Entwicklungen thematisiert. Horspielmacher treffen auf Soundpoeten, Theoretiker, Theatermacher, Autoren, Komponisten und Performance-Kunstler, deren Arbeiten die Grenzen angestammter Genres uberschreiten. Es wird der Frage nachgegangen, welche Rolle Klange, Gerausche, Sprache, Rhythmus und Musik in ihren Arbeiten und in ihrem Denken spielen. Und welchen Einfluss neue technische Gegebenheiten auf Erzahl- und Rezeptionsformen haben.

The Dark Side of Technology is aimed at a mass market of intelligent people who are concerned about human progress, interested or amused by many of the unexpected consequences of technological advance, and probably unaware of the dangers which we are accruing for ourselves. Although the book spans a very wide spectrum of ideas, no previous scientific knowledge is required. Other books have focussed on different topic areas, but none have previously presented thegenerality of the patterns across medicine to agriculture, electronics, communications, a global economy and a burgeoning population. Technology invariably advances faster than our understanding of sideeffects, or our realisation that we have become vulnerable to natural events that could eliminate advanced nations, nor that mutagenic changes may not be apparent for one or two generations. This is therefore both an alarm call and a guide to survival.

Winner of the 2015 National Outdoor Book Award for Natural History Literature and the 2015 PEN New England Henry David Thoreau Prize. A dazzling, inspiring tour through the ways that humans are working with nature to try to save the planet. Ackerman is justly celebrated for her unique insight into the natural world and our place in it. In this landmark book, she confronts the unprecedented reality that one prodigiously intelligent and meddlesome creature, Homo sapiens, is now the dominant force shaping the future of planet Earth. Humans have "subdued 75 percent of the land surface, concocted a wizardry of industrial and medical marvels, strung lights all across the darkness." We tinker with nature at every opportunity; we garden the planet with our preferred species of plants and animals, many of them invasive; and we have even altered the climate, threatening our own extinction. Yet we reckon with our own destructive capabilities in extraordinary acts of hope-filled creativity: we collect the DNA of vanishing species in a "frozen ark," equip orangutans with iPads, and create wearable technologies and synthetic species that might one day outsmart us. With her distinctive gift for making scientific discovery intelligible to the layperson, Ackerman takes us on an exhilarating journey through our new reality, introducing us to many of the people and ideas now creating—perhaps saving—our future and that of our fellow creatures. A beguiling, optimistic engagement with the changes affecting every part of our lives, The Human Age is a wise and beautiful book that will astound, delight, and inform intelligent life for a long time to come.

This groundbreaking work of both theoretical and experiential thought by two leading ecological philosophers and animal liberation scientists ventures into a new frontier of applied ethical anthrozoological studies. Through lean and elegant text, readers will learn that human interconnections with other species and ecosystems are severely endangered precisely because we lack - by our evolutionary self-confidence - the very coherence that is everywhere around us abundantly demonstrated. What our species has deemed to be superior is, according to Tobias and Morrison, the cumulative result of a tragically tenuous argument predicated on the brink of our species’ self-destruction, giving rise to a most unique proposition: We either recognize the miracle of other sentient intelligence, sophistication, and genius, or risk enshrining the shortest lived epitaph of any known vertebrate in earth’s 4.1 billion years of life. Tobias and Morrison draw on 45 years of research in fields ranging from ecological anthropology, animal protection and comparative ethics to literature and spirituality - and beyond. They deploy research in animal and plant behavior, biocultural heritage contexts from every continent and they bring to bear a deeply metaphysical array of perspectives that set this book apart from any other. The book departs from most work in such fields as animal rights, ecological aesthetics, comparative ethology or traditional animal and plant behaviorist work, and yet it speaks to readers with an interest in those fields. A deeply provocative book of philosophical premises and hypotheses from two of the world’s most influential ecological philosophers, this text is likely to stir uneasiness and debate for many decades to come.
