Creative and Innovative Auditing

Bringing creativity and innovation into all professions and types of auditing today, this book meets the needs of auditing practices in the future. Recent criticisms of auditing practices by financial regulators, the traditional ‘expectation gaps’ between auditors and auditees and the continuing advances in technology make it even more important today to motivate creativity and innovation in the professions of auditors, be they internal, external, quality, environmental, social, clinical and so on. In Creative and Innovative Auditing, Jeffrey Ridley studies all auditing practices, not just internal auditing, using an innovation model he has developed through research which is applicable to all auditing organisations and professions. He shows how motivating innovation in auditing practices will address the needs of today and tomorrow’s auditing of governance, risk management and control.

Complex-Valued Modeling in Economics and Finance

Complex-Valued Modeling in Economics and Finance outlines the theory, methodology, and techniques behind modeling economic processes using complex variables theory. The theory of complex variables functions is widely used in many scientific fields, since work with complex variables can appropriately describe different complex real-life processes. Many economic indicators and factors reflecting the properties of the same object can be represented in the form of complex variables. By describing the relationship between various indicators using the functions of these variables, new economic and financial models can be created which are often more accurate than the models of real variables. This book pays critical attention to complex variables production in stock market modeling, modeling illegal economy, time series forecasting, complex auto-aggressive models, and economic dynamics modeling. Very little has been published on this topic and its applications within the fields of economics and finance, and this volume appeals to graduate-level students studying economics, academic researchers in economics and finance, and economists.

Ateizminin Doğurduğu Problemler

Varoluşçuluk felsefesi, farklı eğilimleriyle 20. yüzyıla damgasını vurmuş olan bir felsefe akımıdır. Bu felsefenin en önemli temsilcisi ise hiç kuşkusuz Jean Paul Sartre’dir. Sartre, temsil ettiği felsefi ekolün görüşleriyle uyumlu bir şekilde kendisine hareket noktası olarak insanı seçmiş, insanı yaşam tecrübelerinden şuur ve iradesinden hareketle kendi varlığını yine kendi oluşturan bir canlı olarak görür. Fakat ona göre insanın sahip olduğu bu hürriyet, Tanrının varlığı anlayışıyla bağdaşmaz..

Aklın Yıkımı 2. Kitap Sented by Paul

Georg Lukacs Aklın Yıkımı'nın tartışmalı bir kitap olduğunu söylemekten çekinmez. Horkheimer'ın Akıl Tutulması'ndan yedi yıl sonra, 1952'de tamamlanan yapıt Alman usdışıcılığının tarihçesini tarihsel materyalizmin inceleme araçlarıyla yeniden değerlendirir. Lukacs ender rastlanan bir bilgi ve farkındalık sergileyerek faşizmin canavarlıklarının yaşlı Schelling, Schopenhauer ve Nietzsche'ye kadar geri uzanan bir dönemde atılan tohumlarını araştırır. Alman olmasına karşın Kierkegaard da yirminci yüzyıl düşüncesi üzerinde olağanüstü etkisi açısından uzun uzadıya tartışılır. Lukacs I. Dünya Savaşı öncesinin felsefe ve toplumbilimini ele alırken özellikle Georg Simmel ve Max Weber gibi Almanya'nın önde gelen düşünürlerinden kişisel tanışıklıkla söz eder.

Lukacs'ın seçilmiş düşünürlerde ortaya koyduğu karanlıkçılık, kendinden hoşnutluk, umutsuzluk ya da kiniklik eğilimlerine karşın yazar onların yapısal başarılarını yadsımaya çalışmaz.

Geleceğin Felsefesinin İlkeleri

Ludwig Andreas Feuerbach, (1804-1872) Alman filozof ve ahlakçı. MAteryalist Felsefenin ideologlarından Marx üzerindeki etkisi ve hümanist ilahiyat görüşleri ile tanınmıştır. 19.yüzyıl Alman metaryalizminin ilk düşünürü olan Feuerbach`ın temel eseri Hıristiyanlığın Özü`dür. Felsefesi ya da karşı felsefesi, bir hümanizm ve doğalcılık şeklinde gelişen, dine ilişkin eleştirisi, insanlığa ilişkin doğrularınbilinçsizce yansıtılmasının açıklanmasını yapan Feuerbach, felsefeye önce Hegel`in nesnel idealizmini benimseyerek başlamış, fakat daha sonra tinsellik-maddecilik karşıtlığında, maddeciliğin tarafında olmuştur.

Wittgenstein'da Din Felsefesi

Bu kitapta ele alınan konular, Wittgenstein'ın eserlerinin kronolojik bir düzen içinde ve oldukça sistematik biçimde okunmasıyla temellendirilmiştir. Pek çok eserde dağınık olarak ve kısa aforizmalarda, hatta parantez kabilinden söylenmiş cümlelerde dile getirilen fikirler, organik bir bütünlüğe kavuşturulmuş, iç tutarlılık açısından problemsiz bir yapıya büründürülmüştür.

Marksizm ve Bilim
Marksizm ve Bilim Sented by Michael

Kapitalizm, bilimle toplumsal yaşantımız arasındaki bağı kendi dünya görüşü etrafında şekillendirir. Öyle ki, günümüzde bilim ancak burjuvazinin kâr dürtüsünün sınırları içerisinde gelişme imkânı bulur. Bilimsel buluşlar patentlenerek ticari bir metaya dönüştürülür. Bilim ve teknikteki gelişmeler, silah sanayisinin ayrılmaz bir parçası olarak halka yabancılaşmanın en uç örneklerine ulaşır.

"Hegel, antik site idealini hiçbir zaman terk etmemiştir. 0, yalnızca, bu ideali çağdaş realite ile, toplum içinde giderek daha önemli bir rol oynayan bir burjuvazinin varlığı ile uzlaştırmak istemiştir. Hegel, hukuk konusundaki düşüncesinin ilk sistematik şekli olan jena Hukuk Felsefesi'nde, tabii hukuku,sosyal kurumları yalnızca kendi maddi ve manevi gelişmesine hizmet eden araçlar gibi gören bireysel şahsın hukuku olarak düşünür ve onun karşısına bir organik tabii hukuku koyar; bireyci atomizme, Totalite fikriyle karşı çıkar.

Yöntem Üzerine Konuşma Sented by Musa

"Birkaç yılımı dünya kitabı içinde bu şekilde inceleme yaparak ve bazı deneyimler edinmeye uğraşarak geçirdikten sonra, günün birinde kendi içimdekileri de inceleme ve zihnimin tüm güçlerini izleyeceğim yolları seçmek için kullanma kararı aldım." René Descartes, her hakiki bilginin temeline düşünen özneyi koymasıyla eserleri modernite içinde tayin edici bir ağırlık taşıyan filozof olarak görülebilir. Bu bakımdan önemli bir filozof olmanın yanı sıra kendinden sonrası için de etkisi ölçülemez derecede büyüktür.
