A Book of Abstract Algebra: Second Edition 2nd, Charles C. Pinter - Amazon.com

Each class I've taken as a grad student, I've gone a little overboard buying all sorts of books on the subject matter. I like that each author has a unique style and approach. In abstract algebra, there are the standards (Dummit, Hungerford, etc). These are the more down-and-dirty texts. They're good. They're thorough. They're rigorous. They do the job quite well if you already have some familiarity with the subject. Then there are the older, cheaper books, like Deskins. It's alright. Some people nay-say it, but whatever: it's cheap and is one more voice to add to the choir.

Abstract Nouns Explained - Lists, Examples

We all communicate with abstraction at times.   Though abstract nouns don’t convey things we can experience with our senses – we can’t feel, touch, see, hear, or taste them – they allow us to express important meaning, nonetheless. Being able to recognize and use abstract nouns is important, especially in written communication.   While abstract nouns can convey deep emotion, the writer runs the risk of not clearly expressing his or her meaning.  Things get lost in translation so to speak. Since abstract words are by definition abstract, they can mean different things to different people, so take care to make sure your writing using concrete nouns for clarification.

Welche Welt sehe ich? Was ist sichtbar, was unsichtbar? Wie kreiere ich meine Welt durch meine Gedanken?  Wie schöpfe ich neue Bildwelten? Die Beschäftigung mit der Quantenphysik und ihren Phänomenen begeistert mich schon lange und ich versuche in meinen Arbeiten eigene Antworten auf viele Fragen zu finden. Die Entstehung von Materie als Intention meiner inneren Ausrichtung, meiner ganz persönlichen Haltung, meiner Gedanken. Alles, was uns umgibt besteht aus den gleichen Teilchen und kann auf die Essenz der Quanten reduziert werden.   Im Malprozess entstehen neue (Quanten)Felder, die wiederum durch ihre Existenz Reaktionen auslösen beim Betrachter und in der Welt, so dass eine neue Welle der Kreation neuer Gefühle, Gedanken und Handlungen entstehen kann.

The ComingAfter eight months spent in the obscurity of our mother’s womb, my brother, Shiva, and I came into the world in the late afternoon of the twentieth of September in the year of grace 1954. We took our first breaths at an elevation of eight thousand feet in the thin air of Addis Ababa, capital city of Ethiopia. The miracle of our birth took place in Missing Hospital’s Operating Theater 3, the very room where our mother, Sister Mary Joseph Praise, spent most of her working hours, and in which she had been most fulfilled. When our mother, a nun of the Diocesan Carmelite Order of Madras, unexpectedly went into labor that September morning, the big rain in Ethiopia had ended, its rattle on the corrugated tin roofs of Missing ceasing abruptly like a chatterbox cut off in midsentence.
