Paradoxia Epidemica

The Renaissance Tradition of Paradox

Paradoxia Epidemica

Paradoxia Epidemica is a broad-ranging critical study of Renaissance thought, showing how the greatest writers of the period from Erasmus and Rabelais to Donne, Milton, and Shakespeare made conscious use of paradox not only as a figure of speech but as a mode of thought, a way of perceiving the universe, God, nature, and man himself. The book consists of an introduction (historical and topological) and sixteen chapters grouped according to broad types of paradox: rhetorical, theological, ontological, epistemological. Within this framework the author interprets individual writings or art forms as parts of a rich tradition. Originally published in 1966. The Princeton Legacy Library uses the latest print-on-demand technology to again make available previously out-of-print books from the distinguished backlist of Princeton University Press. These editions preserve the original texts of these important books while presenting them in durable paperback and hardcover editions. The goal of the Princeton Legacy Library is to vastly increase access to the rich scholarly heritage found in the thousands of books published by Princeton University Press since its founding in 1905.

Supreme Court Decision-Making

New Institutionalist Approaches

Supreme Court Decision-Making

What influences decisions of the U.S. Supreme Court? For decades social scientists focused on the ideology of individual justices. Supreme Court Decision Making moves beyond this focus by exploring how justices are influenced by the distinctive features of courts as institutions and their place in the political system. Drawing on interpretive-historical institutionalism as well as rational choice theory, a group of leading scholars consider such factors as the influence of jurisprudence, the unique characteristics of supreme courts, the dynamics of coalition building, and the effects of social movements. The volume's distinguished contributors and broad range make it essential reading for those interested either in the Supreme Court or the nature of institutional politics. Original essays contributed by Lawrence Baum, Paul Brace, Elizabeth Bussiere, Cornell Clayton, Sue Davis, Charles Epp, Lee Epstein, Howard Gillman, Melinda Gann Hall, Ronald Kahn, Jack Knight, Forrest Maltzman, David O'Brien, Jeffrey Segal, Charles Sheldon, James Spriggs II, and Paul Wahlbeck.

RYU SDN Framework - English Edition

RYU SDN Framework - English Edition

This specialized book is for the Ryu development framework, which is used to achieve Software Defined Networking (SDN). Why Ryu? We hope you can find the answer in this book. We recommend that you read Chapters 1 to 5, in that order. In Chapter 1, a simple switch hub is implemented, and in later chapters, traffic monitor and link aggregation functions are added. Through actual examples, we describe programming using Ryu. Chapters 6 to 8 provide details about the OpenFlow protocol and the packet libraries that are necessary for programming using Ryu. In Chapters 9 to 11, we talk about how to use the firewall and test tool included in the Ryu package as sample applications. Chapters 12 to 14 introduce Ryu's architecture and introduction cases. Finally, we would like to say thank you to those people, in particular users, who supported the Ryu project. We are waiting for your opinions via the mailing list. Let's develop Ryu together!
