The fascination that the work of Gaudí arouses is due in large part to the enigmatic symbolism of its forms, full of mystical and philosophical significance that is sometimes difficult for observers to perceive, but which becomes clearer when analysed in the light of certain very influential currents of ideas in the art of the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Based on the study of Casa Bellesguard and the Temple of the Sagrada Família, this book opens up new avenues for interpreting Gaudí’s symbolism, discovering the ties existing between the work of the Catalan architect and that of the German painter Peter Lenz, which at the same time is rooted in the early Romantic period. Aimed at both specialists and the general public, Antoni Gaudí: Casa Bellesguard as the Key to His Symbolism not only broadens the knowledge and the documentation of Gaudí’s creative universe, but also contributes to enriching our perception of his work.

Transiciones is a thorough ethnography of seven Latino students in transition between high school and community college or university. Data gathered over two years of interviews with the students, their high school English teachers, and their writing teachers and administrators at postsecondary institutions reveal a rich picture of the conflicted experience of these students as they attempted to balance the demands of schooling with a variety of personal responsibilities. Todd Ruecker explores the disconnect between students’ writing experiences in high school and higher education and examines the integral role that writing plays in college. Considering the almost universal requirement that students take a writing class in their critical first year of college, he contends that it is essential for composition researchers and teachers to gain a fuller understanding of the role they play in supporting and hindering Latina and Latino students’ transition to college. Arguing for situating writing programs in larger discussions of high school / college alignment, student engagement, and retention, Transiciones raises the profile of what writing programs can do, while calling composition teachers, administrators, and scholars to engage in more collaboration across the institution, across institutions, and across disciplines to make the transition from high school to college writing more successful for this important group of students.
Tras un largo proceso de revisión por parte del Comité Técnico 176 de ISO, el 23 de septiembre de 2015 fue finalmente publicada la nueva y esperada versión de la norma ISO 9001, el modelo de sistemas de gestión más popular y con mayor número de certificados en todo el mundo. Vistos los cambios que aporta esta nueva edición —cambios en la estructura, en el enfoque, en los requisitos, en los términos y conceptos—, el proceso de transición no será una tarea fácil para las personas responsables de la implementación y mantenimiento del sistema, por lo que el principal objetivo de este libro es hacer una descripción sencilla de los cambios y novedades que aporta la nueva versión de la norma de forma que el proceso de transición sea lo más eficaz y menos traumático posible. Este libro es una guía útil tanto para aquellas empresas que aborden la implementación de la norma por primera vez como aquellas que ya estén certificadas. Para ello, se incluyen como anexos la correlación entre los puntos de la antigua versión 2008 y la nueva versión 2015 así como un listado en el que se especifican los nuevos documentos y registros obligatorios, que facilita la optimización del sistema documental.

El mundo ha cambiado tanto que los jóvenes tienen que reinventar la rueda. Para Michel Serres, nace un nuevo ser humano, él lo bautiza como Pulgarcita, sobre todo por su capacidad para enviar mensajes con el pulgar. Las sociedades occidentales han experimentado dos revoluciones: la transición de lo oral a lo escrito, y el paso de escribir en una pizarra a escribir en libros. Ahora vivimos la tercera revolución: la transición a las nuevas tecnologías. No hay progreso o desastre, ya sea bueno o malo, ésta es la realidad y tenemos que lidiar con eso. La generación Pulgarcita tendrá que reinventar una forma de vivir juntos, instituciones y formas de ser y conocer. - "Michel Serres es el abuelo con el que todos soñamos. En él se unen tan bien la sabiduría y la juventud, que a su lado se tiene la impresión de que tiene toda la vida por delante" - Sophie Bancquart, directora de la Editorial Pommier. - "A este formidable ensayo se puede aplicar igualmente la frase de Michel de Montaigne: "vale más una cabeza bien hecha que una cabeza bien llena" - Lire, Francia. - "Michel Serres analiza meticulosamente y con ternura los cambios que entrañan las nuevas tecnologías sobre (o en) las generaciones actuales. Lejos de estigmatizar a los nativos digitales, describe una generación mutante y apasionada" - Dirigeants Chrétiens.
