H(erbert) G(eorge) Wells (1866-1946) English novelist, journalist, sociologist, and historian, whose science fiction stories have been filmed many times. H.G. Wells's best known works are THE TIME MACHINE (1895), one of the first modern science fiction stories, THE INVISIBLE MAN (1897), and THE WAR OF THE WORLDS (1898). Wells wrote over a hundred of books, about fifty of them novels. "No one would have believed, in the last years of the nineteenth century, that human affairs were being watched keenly and closely by intelligences greater than man's and yet as mortal as his own; that as men busied themselves about their affairs they were scrutinized and studied, perhaps almost as narrowly as a man with a microscope might scrutinize the transient creatures that swarm and multiply in a drop of water." (from War of the Worlds Along with George Orwell 's Nineteen-Eighty-Four and Aldous Huxley 's Brave New World , which was a pessimistic answer to scientific optimism, Wells's novels are among the classics of science-fiction. Later Wells's romantic and enthusiastic conception of technology turned more doubtful. His bitter side is seen early in the novel BOON (1915), which was a parody of

George Herbert (1593-1633)
George Herbert was greatly influenced by the work of John Donne , a friend of the Herbert family. In a brief study of George Herbert, T. S. Eliot instructively compares two sonnets Prayer by Herbert and Holy Sonnet 14 by Donne. Eliot finds in Donne more of the "orator," a contrast to the more intimate tone of Herbert, a contrast that may reflect the size of Donne's large congregation at St. Paul's Cross versus Herbert's small rural parish in Wiltshire. Visit Anniina Jokinen's George Herbert page.
A Sonnet
My God, where is that ancient heat towards thee,
Wherewith whole shoals of martyrs once did burn,
Besides their other flames? Doth poetry
Wear Venus' livery? only serve her turn?
Why are not sonnets made of thee? and lays
Upon thine altar burnt? Cannot thy love
Heighten a spirit to sound out thy praise
As well as any she? Cannot thy Dove

When The Sleeper Wakes

Timeline H.G. Wells was born on September 21, 1866 in Bromley, Kent. Joseph Wells had an accident that left him with a fractured thigh. The accident effectively put an end to Joseph`s career as a cricketer and his earnings as a shopkeeper were not enough to compensate for the loss forcing him to apprentice his sons. Approx 1880 Wells was apprenticed like his brothers to a draper, spending the years between 1880 and 1883 in Windsor and Southsea Wells became a teacher-pupil at Midhurst Grammar School Wells settled in London, married his cousin Isabel and continued his career as a teacher in a correspondence college. As a novelist Wells made his debut with The Time Machine , a parody of English class division and a satirical warning that human progress is not inevitable Wells left Isabel for one of his brightest students, Amy Catherine -whom he married. The Island Of Dr. Moreau

About George Herbert
Herbert was some fifteen years older than John Milton, the most celebrated of English poets to have treated religious subjects, but the work of the two poets could scarcely be more different: Milton's verse is public, rhetorical, bombastic and solemn Back to top Herbert's work is more private, subjective but modest in its aim. He creates an appearance of order by the arrangement of the poems that make up The Temple but there is no clear structure as in Milton's Paradise Lost Back to top
The Temple
The Temple is the title Herbert gave to a collection of devotional lyric poems (about a hundred and seventy in number. A small number of English poems not in the collection survives along with many Latin poems and a handful in Greek.)

Herbert George Wells, the son of an unsuccessful tradesman, was born in Bromley on 21st September, 1866. After a basic education at a local school, Wells was apprenticed as a draper. Wells disliked the work and in 1883 became a pupil-teacher at Midhurst Grammar School. While at Midhurst Wells won a scholarship to the School of Science where he was taught biology by T. H. Huxley. Wells found Huxley an inspiring teacher and as a result developed a strong interest in evolution. Wells founded and edited the Science Schools Journal while at university. Wells was disappointing with the teaching he received in the second year and so in 1887 he left without obtaining a degree.
Wells spent the next few years teaching and writing and in 1891 his major essay on science, The Rediscovery of the Unique , was published in The Fortnightly Review . In 1895 Wells established himself as a novelist in 1895 with his science fiction story, The Time Machine . This was followed by two more successful novels, The Island of Dr. Moreau

14. Book Review Of Herbert George Mead
Not all great scientists are also great writers, and the American biologist George Herbert Mead certainly wasn t a great writer. His classic is difficult
Herbert George Mead:
THE PHILOSOPHY OF THE ACT (Univ of Chicago Press, 1938)

Piero Scaruffi
Legal restrictions - Termini d'uso Not all great scientists are also great writers, and the American biologist George Herbert Mead certainly wasn't a great writer. His classic is difficult read for anybody, and still open to interpretation. Mead's ideas on consciousness were and still are revolutionary, in particular because they locate consciousness outside in the world, outside the organism.
Consciousness is not a separate substance, but the world in its relationship with the organism. Objects of the environment are colored, beautiful, etc: that "is" consciousness.
Objects do not exist per se, they are just the way an organism perceives the environment. And, presumably, different organisms may perceive different objects. Each organism perceives a different environment. It is our acting in the environment that determines how we perceive the environment. We are actors as well as observers. The response of the environment is what we perceive as objects.
In other words: the nature of the environment lies in its relationship to the organism; the environment results from the actions of the organism, in response to the stimulation of its sense organs, i.e. the organism determines the environment; and this results in the appearance of objects.

Herbert George Wells (1866-1946) a Brief Biography Sometimes called the father of modern science fiction, H.G. Wells was born on September 21, 1866 in Bromley, Kent, England. His father, a professional cricket player and shopkeeper, and his mother, a former lady's maid, raised Wells with the idea that he would find a place in the work world that they were accustomed. He aspired to a different place in society. When he was thirteen, he left school to become a draper's apprentice, a job his family expected would be proper for a boy of his station. The work repelled him, however. He worked briefly in a drugstore, returned for a stint as a draper's assistant, then finally found a job as a teacher's assistant in a grammar school. Education and academia suited him well. In 1884 he entered college with a scholarship to study biology. He was able to study under one of the great biology teachers of the time, Thomas Henry Huxley, and Wells graduated in 1888. The writings of Jules Verne undoubtably influenced Wells, and he wrote his first novel, The Time Machine , partly in response to this new kind of literature that Verne produced. The story appeared in various forms in magazines from 1888 to 1894 and was released in its current form in 1895. The book was successful, and Wells did not need to teach or worry about money from that time on.

Anglican Vicar and Poet
George Herbert's poems abound with surprise: stanzas flowing into the shape of an altar or angel wings; hidden words threading together a key theme; anagrams letting letters dance (Mary: "How well her name an 'Army' doth present/In whom the Lord of Hosts did pitch his tent!"). When we read about Herbert's life through those who knew him, a similar sense of wonder emerges. Here was a minister who restored the run-down Bremerton church with his own money, consoled ill parishioners, aided the poor, and vigiled with the dying. He became so beloved that, in the words of Izaak Walton, even the farmers "let their plows rest when Mr. Herbert's saint's bell rung to prayers, that they might also offer their devotion to God with him."
Patricia Carlson "Teach me thy love to know;
That this new light, which now I see,
May both the work and workman show:
Then by a sunne-beam I will climbe to thee." In 1626 Herbert resigned his position and announced his desire to seek holy orders in the Anglican church.  His friends tried to persuade him that this was a terrible waste of his talents and opportunities.  But his mind was set.  In 1629 he married Jane Danvers.  The following year he was ordained a priest and accepted the position of rector of the church in Bemerton, a tiny rural parish in Salisbury Plain.
