Propos sur le bonheur

Texte intégral révisé suivi d'une biographie d'Alain. Alain est d'abord un professeur, dont la popularité ainsi que l'influence sur la philosophie et sur l'enseignement de la philosophie en France, ne sont guère comparables au XXe siècle qu'à celles d'Henri Bergson, ou autrefois à celles de Jules Michelet ou d'Edgar Quinet. Mais il dédaigne les éclats des maîtres romantiques, et il ne possède, pour s'imposer comme un Bergson, ni l'aisance mondaine ni même une doctrine originale. Un robuste rationalisme, un kantisme étrangement promené à travers d'infatigables observations de choses et de gens, et corrigé par ses observations, voilà toute la philosophie d'Alain. Mais Alain est-il un philosophe ? Bien plutôt un éveilleur d'esprits. Il n'a pas de système à proposer, mais seulement la constante et infiniment diverse leçon de défiance à l'égard des opinions communes, des idées toutes faites. "L'esprit n'est pas une poubelle à vérités", dit-il, et encore: "Il s'agit de former son jugement par un massacre de pensées..." Que cherche-t-il, et surtout que fait-il chercher à ses élèves, à ses lecteurs ? "Une intelligence plus lourde, lestée de terre, servante des yeux et des mains, étroitement collée aux choses réelles, et qui ne sépare point l'idée de l'outil." À propos d'Alain on parle souvent de Montaigne. Mais on évoque aussi, toutes proportions gardées, quelque Socrate, moins léger et rusé, plus paysan.

The first book in The One-Day Expert series detailed the initial steps that Thomas, a young, high-potential plant manager in an industrial group, took to assess his plant’s situation through measurement of operators’ performance. The second book in the series, Implementing Standardized Work: Writing Standardized Work Forms focuses on the next step of this assessment—writing Standardized Work forms to help identify variability and waste.

The book uses numerous examples, charts, and drawings to illustrate the interaction between operator, machine, and material. Besides process analysis, the book discusses process analysis charts, Standardized Work charts, Standardized Work combination tables, and operator work instructions. It also: Summarizes key points after each step to reinforce understanding Contains many illustrations to help make application easy Includes access to additional materials on the book’s website

Since an operation can only be standardized if it is repeatable, the most important requirement for a real application of Standardized Work is minimum stability in the process. The book explains how to estimate the stability level of a process by performing process analysis. It also presents a multistage bar called Yamazumihyo to help you perform your own process analysis.

After reading this book you will understand how to use Standardized Work forms as the starting point to establishing a safe and ergonomic work place that delivers quality products in an efficient manner.

Provides a new narrative history of the ancient world, from the beginnings of civilization in the ancient Near East and Egypt to the fall of Constantinople

Written by an expert in the field, this book presents a narrative history of Babylon from the time of its First Dynasty (1880-1595) until the last centuries of the city’s existence during the Hellenistic and Parthian periods (ca. 331-75 AD). Unlike other texts on Ancient Near Eastern and Mesopotamian history, it offers a unique focus on Babylon and Babylonia, while still providing readers with an awareness of the interaction with other states and peoples. Organized chronologically, it places the various socio-economic and cultural developments and institutions in their historical context. The book also gives religious and intellectual developments more respectable coverage than books that have come before it.

A History of Babylon, 2200 BC – AD 75 teaches readers about the most important phase in the development of Mesopotamian culture. The book offers in-depth chapter coverage on the Sumero-Addadian Background, the rise of Babylon, the decline of the first dynasty, Kassite ascendancy, the second dynasty of Isin, Arameans and Chaldeans, the Assyrian century, the imperial heyday, and Babylon under foreign rule.

Focuses on Babylon and Babylonia Written by a highly regarded Assyriologist Part of the very successful Histories of the Ancient World series An excellent resource for students, instructors, and scholars

A History of Babylon, 2200 BC - AD 75 is a profound text that will be ideal for upper-level undergraduate and graduate courses on Ancient Near Eastern and Mesopotamian history and scholars of the subject.
