The Constitution of the United States of America is the supreme law of the United States. It is the foundation and source of the legal authority underlying the existence of the United States of America and the Federal Government of the United States. It provides the framework for the organization of the United States Government. The document defines the three main branches of the government: The legislative branch with a bicameral Congress, an executive branch led by the President, and a judicial branch headed by the Supreme Court. Besides providing for the organization of these branches, the Constitution outlines obligations of each office, as well as provides what powers each branch may exercise. It also reserves numerous rights for the individual states, thereby establishing the United States' federal system of government. It is the shortest and oldest written constitution of any major sovereign state.

Warsaw was a city wholly devastated by the ravishes of the Nazi war machine during WWII. So complete was the intent of this destruction that the records kept of said destruction survived the war in manuscripts and logs. This short work is a case study that examines the broader implications of the theory that urban city planning diverged significantly and blossomed due to the complete and utter destruction wrought by the Second Great War.

Life of W. T. Sapp, The World Famous Ossified Man written by Himself. Published in Danville VA, in 1897<br /><br />A brief account of his Life, Condition and Experience: a Book from which every Man, Woman and Child in the Land may learn a Lesson of Patience, Cheerfulness and Self Reliance.<br /><br />Obituary Notice<br />Known as the "Ossified Man" <br />Mr. W. T. Sapp, the famous ossified man of Lebanon, K.Y., is dead in Albuquerque, N.M.. While still a child Sapp's muscular tissues entirely wasted away and every joint in the body except those of the left shoulder and of the hands became solidified. For thirty-six years the hapless statue of the man has been on exhibition.<br /><br />Excerpt<br />….Although I wander through the world alone, among strange people and surrounded by strange scenes, the love of home and recollection of its friends have not faded from my memory. Time will fail to blot from my memory the careworn face of a kind old mother, as she touched my cheek with a last holy kiss of motherly love, and whose parting words were a prayer for my welfare. Well do I remember her as she looked after me until I had passed from her view, going helpless as I was, into a strange world from which she might never see me return. The tottering gait, the trembling hand and the silvery locks of my aged father, whose eyes filled with tears as he shook my hand, are treasured deep in my mind. In my childhood they had hoped to see me enter life's battle gifted with vigorous form and manly strength, but they must see me enter the great struggles helpless as a babe. This parting filled me with emotions that cannot be described, but armed with a strong will power and courage, I determined to do the best I could, and though, with the aid of only the fingers and one shoulder, I have thus far succeeded in making my own way through a world, where so many blessed with health and strength sink down discouraged or waste their strength in cowardly complaint. In order to make my own way I have left parents and home, wandering alone through a selfish world, and may die among strangers in a strange land, without the tender hand of a loving woman to smooth my dying pillow or plant one sweet flower on my grave to cheer the lonely spot while I sleep the calm sweet sleep of death. But, if I can, as I pass through the world in my unfortunate condition, be the means of teaching others, more fortunate than myself, the lesson of patience and gratefulness, I shall feel that the design of an allwise Creator has been accomplished and that my mission in life will not have been in vain, and I shall die content.<br />W.

Dieses eBook wurde mit einem funktionalen Layout erstellt und sorgfältig formatiert. Die Ausgabe ist mit interaktiven Inhalt und Begleitinformationen versehen, einfach zu navigieren und gut gegliedert.<br />Aus der Vorrede:<br />"Was ist Glückseligkeit der Menschen? Und wiefern findet sie auf unsrer Erde statt? Wiefern findet sie, bei der großen Verschiedenheit aller Erdwesen und am meisten der Menschen, allenthalben statt, unter jeder Verfassung, in jedem Klima, bei allen Revolutionen der Umstände, Lebensalter und Zeiten? Gibt es einen Maßstab dieser verschiednen Zustände, und hat die Vorsehung aufs Wohlsein ihrer Geschöpfe in allen diesen Situationen als auf ihren letzten und Hauptendzweck gerechnet? Alle diese Fragen mußten untersucht, sie mußten durch den wilden Lauf der Zeiten und Verfassungen verfolgt und berechnet werden, ehe ein allgemeines Resultat fürs Ganze der Menschheit herausgebracht werden konnte."<br />Johann Gottfried von Herder, geadelt 1802, (1744 - 1803) war ein deutscher Dichter, Übersetzer, Theologe sowie Geschichts- und Kultur-Philosoph der Weimarer Klassik. Er war einer der einflussreichsten Schriftsteller und Denker deutscher Sprache im Zeitalter der Aufklärung und zählt mit Christoph Martin Wieland, Johann Wolfgang Goethe und Friedrich Schiller zum klassischen Viergestirn von Weimar.

Ludwig Feuerbach und der Ausgang der klassischen deutschen Philosophie ist eine erstmals 1886 veröffentlichte Schrift Friedrich Engels. Nach Engels soll das Werk die schon 40 Jahre zuvor, in der zu Lebzeiten Marx' und Engels unveröffentlichten Schrift "Die deutsche Ideologie", unternommene Aufgabe erledigen, sich mit der deutschen Philosophie aus einer materialistischen Position heraus kritisch auseinanderzusetzen. Dabei betonte Engels vor allem die Bedeutung Hegels und Ludwig Feuerbachs für die eigenen Theorien.

Wie auch viele andere seiner Zeitgenossen beschäftigte sich der Philosoph und Theologe Johann Gottfried Herder während der Epoche der Klassik mit der Frage nach der wahren Humanität. In In diesem fiktiven Briefwechsel sucht Herder zuerst nach den Begriff 'Humanität' definierenden Synonymen, aber weist diese sofort wieder zurück und verdeutlicht dann seine persönliche Auffassung von Humanität.<br />Johann Gottfried von Herder, geadelt 1802, (1744 - 1803) war ein deutscher Dichter, Übersetzer, Theologe sowie Geschichts- und Kultur-Philosoph der Weimarer Klassik.

Авторы предпринимают опыты объяснения причин исторического беспамятства в России. Поднимают вопросы, которые Россия, от отдельно взятого гражданина до общества в целом, давно должна поставить, осознать и начать решать: откуда пошла земля Русская, куда идёт и на чём спотыкается.<br />Иначе будем наступать на одни и те же грабли. И вместо решения конкретных и перезревших проблем умиляться своей выдуманной историей, пугать мир своим непредсказуемым прошлым, безрадостным настоящим и непонятным будущим.
