Bibliotheca Australiana #11. Four [4] fold-out maps. Eleven [11] Black & white illustrations [four fold-out]. xxx, 204, 124, 20 pages + 60 pages Alexander Dalrymple was a Scottish geographer and the first Hydrographer of the British Admiralty. He was the main proponent of the theory that there existed a vast undiscovered continent in the South Pacific - Terra Australis Incognita. He produced thousands of nautical charts, mapping a remarkable number of seas and oceans for the first time, and contributing significantly to the safety of shipping. Whilst translating some Spanish documents captured in the Philippines in 1752, Dalrymple had found Luis Váez de Torres' testimony proving a passage south of New Guinea now known as Torres Strait. This discovery led Dalrymple to publish the "Historical Collection of the Several Voyages and Discoveries in the South Pacific Ocean" in 1770-1771, which aroused widespread interest in his claim of the existence of an unknown continent. Meanwhile James Cook had been appointed in his place to lead an expedition to the South Pacific which in 1770 discovered the east coast of Australia. ID272786

Rationalism: A Critique of Pure Theory, Ellis, Brian
16 Ellis, Brian Rationalism: A Critique of Pure Theory
North Melbourne Australian Scholarly Publishing 2017 1925003558 / 9781925003550 1st Edition Trade Paperback 
MINT - a NEW copy. lvi, 249 pages This book is a critique of rationalism. It aims to explain both its powerful contributions to mathematics and physical sciences, where our arithmetical, geometrical, and mechanical intuitions have had a highly productive role in the development of pure theory, and its disastrous failures in cosmology and the moral sciences. In these supposed sciences, rationalism has all but destroyed the social conscience of the West, by creating the disastrous political philosophy of neoliberalism. To reset our moral compasses, we must develop new, and socially just versions, of the old welfare states. And, to restore democracy, we must return to Keynesian economic management. ID296024
