  • FINAL REVIEW“Everyone has the best of feelings towards mankind in general, but not towards the individual man. We'll kill men, but we want to save mankind. And that isn't right, your Reverence. The world will be an evil place as long as people don't believe in other people.”― Karel Čapek, The Absolute at LargeAs the Robots take over the world in Karel Čapek’s R.U.R so the Absolute, that is, the God of Spinoza, the God imminent in all of nature, escapes and explodes from entrapment in g [...]


  • Ако има едно Абсолютно нещо на този свят, то ще да е човешкият егоизъм. Хората са оцелели заради него, а не от алтруистични подбуди. Инстинктът за самосъхранение е най-висшата форма на егоизъм, а индивидът е най-продуктивната фабрика за Абсолют.Антиутопичният роман на Карел [...]


  • In recent days, I've had two separate conversations with men of faith. One minister and one pastor. During these conversations, Capek's Absolute at Large came to mind. While I read this book over a year ago, it is one of those books that will forever stay with me. The premise of the book is rather simple -- an inventor creates a machine that can run on minuscule amount of fuel and deliver an almost infinite amount of energy. The burn is complete, producing no waste - a scientist's dream. Yet, th [...]


  • În această carte extrem de amuzantă, Capek ne avertizează în legătură cu pericolele extremismului religios. Dar să începem cu începutul: ce ne-am face dacă ne-am trezi pe cap cu un Dumnezeu proaspăt eliberat de materie (mai exact DIN materie), "total lipsit de experienţă" şi nesubordonat Bisericii? Un Dumnezeu extrem de interesat de producţia industrială, dar care ignoră complet distribuţia şi comerţul? Un Dumnezeu care îi face pe oameni generoşi, dar nu şi pacifişti? Ce [...]


  • În "Fabrica de absolut", Karel Capek înfăţişează o lume SF în care o maşinărie produce energie din nimic, dar emană o substanţă, sub formă de plasmă, care-i face pe oameni să fie extremişti în convingerile lor. Ca întotdeauna, pe glob există mai multe religii Concluzia se poate trage foarte lesne. Karel Capek a devenit astfel unul dintre scriitorii reprezentativi ai gândirii analitice socialiste, ducând slaba judecată la apogeu şi prezentându-i consecinţele pe un fundal [...]


  • Βαθμολογία: 7/10Το μικρό αυτό βιβλιαράκι αποτελεί την πρώτη μου επαφή με το έργο του Κάρελ Τσάπεκ. Ουσιαστικά πρόκειται για μια σατιρική νουβέλα επιστημονικής φαντασίας, που με έξυπνο και χιουμοριστικό τρόπο σατιρίζει την θρησκεία και την τρέλα της εκβιομηχάνισης, ενώ θέτε [...]



  • I first heard about this novel a couple of weeks ago on NPR's You Must Read This series, which, in case you aren't familiar with it, features well-known authors recommending books other than their own for your consideration; your favorite authors' favorite reads, if you will. I was not familiar with the author who recommended this, and I can't remember her name now, but when she described the plot, I knew I needed to read it. Apparently, Capek was a well-known Czech novelist and playwright (whom [...]


  • "People should first of all believe in other people, and the rest would soon follow.""Everyone has the best of feelings toward mankind in general, but not towards the individual man. We'll kill men, but we want to save mankind."


  • This book is an excellent first item on a literature list for anyone teaching social/ethical aspects of machine learning. Before you give into all the popular beliefs about skynet, what AI will do to production and labour, take a dive in to this 1920s story from a wonderful czech writer. The idea that t absolute that will change our lives is not the absolute that will change our minds is something I am planning to teach, using this book, on a data science introduction seminar. A quick, definatel [...]


  • با سردرد این کتابو تموم کردم :/تا یک سوم اولش رو دوست داشتم بعدش رو نه خیلی. و فکر میکنم یکی از دلیل ها ترجمه بود. دیگه آخراش فقط داشتم میخوندم که تموم بشه!اما خب موضوع جالبی داشت. نمیتونم منکرش بشم! پایانش هم خوب بود، با این مضمون که چون خودمون یه چیزیو دوست داریم و یکی دیگه دوست ن [...]


  • let's get the easy stuff out of the way first. the premise is: a Czech engineer designs a device that transforms matter into energy with perfect efficiency -- a sort of nuclear reactor, except this was written in the 1920s and particle physics was still very new and exciting territory. there is a hitch, of course -- in the process of annihilation, matter releases not only energy, but also its all-pervasive Spinozan divine essence, causing spontaneous fits of religious fervor, revelations, miracl [...]


  • Un inventeur conçoit une machine capable de produire une énergie formidable et entièrement propre en annihilant le charbon. Formidable ! Malheureusement, la destruction de la matière libère l'essence divine qui s'y trouvait enfermée, et tandis que le monde entier s'équipe de son Carburateur, une vague de foi aveugle se met à frapper tous ceux qui s'en approchent.Ce petit roman de SF tchèque est extrêmement facile à lire et délicieusement satirique. Tout le monde est tourné en déris [...]



  • La divinità come sottoprodotto della combustione. Ovvero, come attirarsi le simpatie dei credenti di tutte le fediRomanzo (1920) con struttura a mosaico e assenza di un intreccio coerente: lo stesso Čapek lo riconosce nella prefazione (effettivamente non è un romanzo, ma un feuilleton a puntate). Non per questo la lettura è meno piacevole, anzi: l'effetto sta a metà tra il documentario/reportage e il film/serial del genere "catastrofe globale", in cui si sviluppano diverse storie parallele, [...]


  • Pozycja obowiązkowa - książka doskonale balansuje pomiędzy absurdem a smutną obserwacją rzeczywistości. Bardzo miła lektura.


  • The Absolute at Large is a deft, straightforward, drily laugh-out-loud satire on spiritualism. When a frazzled inventor accidentally invents a nuclear power engine that offgasses God, a.k.a the Absolute, he begs his old friend and industry baron to buy the machine and get it off his hands. As its curious byproduct converts factory workers, board members, bankers, and innocent bystanders to rapturous spirituality, neither capitalism or Marxism can withstand its effects on society--and the Catholi [...]


  • Една изключително забавна и оригинална книга. Като богослов мога да разбера какво влияние може да има вярата върху човека. Винаги съм мислил, че сляпата вяра води до един безмислен и съкрушителен фанатизъм и историята го потърждава по-добре от която и да е дума. Вярата, в не [...]


  • Trebuie sa spun ca titlul m-a atras inca de la inceput. Am prevestit ca are sa ofere ceva demn de atentie si, intr-adevar, cartea contureaza o idee interesanta- stiinta genereaza energie divina pe banda rulanta. DAR, tehnica nu a prea priit. Aveam asteptari mai mari, sigur, au fost si momente de gratie, dar pare ca s-au scufundat in detalii inutile. Important e ca dupa o zi de lecturat am ramas cu ceva: o lectie. Romanul trateaza probleme existentialiste, te asaza in fata unui mare semn al intre [...]


  • This was a very obvious political and religious treatise, but I'm really glad I read it. It took some very serious topics and presented them in a lighter way, something more manageable than your run of the mill soap-boxing. The ideas in it were well-presented, though with humour, and there were a lot of places where I found myself highlighting quotes that stood out to me, for example:Pg 103 (according to Kindle): "We'll have no Japanese faith. If there's to be any faith, then it must be the Orth [...]


  • Capek's pioneering works are indeed worthy to read; yet, a modern reader- already divulged by the perennial dreary image of dystopian future, when the rebellious robots and machines will threaten the human race- may ironically find his novels and plays, which were once original and indeed seminal, cliché and outdated. Nevertheless, 'the absolute at large' sounds original and even surprising.Capek machinates stores of interesting ideas and brings them into this novel, wherein each of those ideas [...]


  • It is a misnomer to call The Higg's Boson, 'The God Particle' for a variety of reasons, least (or most) of all by asserting our own belief in the belief that any unifying feature in our physical universe can only be defined within the parameters of 'God'. This is the modern subtext of Capek's Absolute, an extant field of holiness, produced in our most unholy of machinations - industry. The Absolute fulfills Fukuyama's 'End of History', is the apex of every Galtian-Randian fantasy, and the termin [...]


  • A highly recommended sci-fi novel for anyone who enjoys Phillip K. Dick or maybe early Kurt Vonnegut. An engineer discovers a process that liberates almost 100% of the energy in matter. He calls his invention a Karburetor and it can run a factory or generate power for a whole city on the tiniest amounts of coal. The Karburetor has a strange by-product that is also produced: God, the Absolute, in an undiminished form. Peculiar things start to happen. The Karburetors not only power the factories, [...]


  • Very clever, very funny, very dark. I can hardly believe this was written all the way back in the 1920s. What happens - or rather - how people react when the pure substance of 'God', or the Absolute, appear in the world. Quite prophetic really (World War II and other wars of the last and our century)but almost a hundred years on it doesn't seem to me we have progressed that much from Capek's characters.


  • "В колкото по-голямо нещо вярва някой, толкова по-яростно презира другите, които не вярват в него. А всъщност най-голямата вяра би било да се вярва в хората.""Всяка вяра и всяка истина си има нещо хубаво, та дори да е само това, че другият си я обича."


  • This is one of those books I had to read for a college class on Eastern European history since 1914. It has stayed with me ever since as representative of the Czechs' biting satire, especially towards religion. It remains one of my favorite books of all time and is a must-read for, well, everyone.


  • "We aren't used to reckoning with God as a reality. We don't know what His presence may bring about"By sally tarbox on 9 August 2017Format: PaperbackWritten in the 1920s, this novel is set in the immediate future - the 1940s - where inventor Marek has just invented the Karburator. A sort of atomic engine, this features 'perfect combustion', where every scrap of matter is used: "one kilogramme of coal, if it underwent complete combustion, would run a good-sized factory for several hundred hours." [...]


  • "You know, the greater the things are in which a man believes, the more fiercely he despises those who do not believe in them. And yet the greatest of all beliefs would be belief in one's fellow-men."Plotwise, this book follows a similar trajectory to Capek's later work, War With the Newts, which, in my opinion, is the better of the two. However, The Absolute at Large is an interesting novel in its own right, and should not be missed. As I mentioned in my last Capek review, the author's cynical [...]


  • "– A tak. Jest nieskończony. I w tym cała bieda. Każdy sobie z niego odmierzy parę metrów i zdaje się mu, że to już cały Bóg. Przywłaszczy sobie taką małą łupinkę czy skrawek i zdaje mu się, że ma całego Boga. – Aha – powiedział kapitan. – I wścieka się na tych, co mają inny kawałek. – Właśnie tak. I żeby samego siebie przekonać, że ma całą prawdę, musi pozabijać tych innych. Właśnie dlatego, że mu tak strasznie na tym zależy, żeby miał sam całeg [...]

Înfățișarea: infinită, invizibilă, informă. Domiciliul: pretudindeni. Ocupația: comunist mistic.
