Description
One hundred fifty years later, Jules Verne’s epic novel of science and adventure is just as thrilling as when it was first published  A dirty slip of parchment falls from the pages of an ancient manuscript. Deciphered by the indefatigable Otto Liedenbrock, professor of geology, and his reluctant nephew, Axel, the parchment’s coded message is a wild assertion made by a medieval alchemist: Inside a volcano in Iceland is a passageway to the center of the earth. Impossible, says Axel—the temperature of the earth’s core is far too high for any human being to go near it. That is one theory, the professor replies. Two days later, they embark on a journey so fantastic it will alter the very meaning of history.     First published in 1864, Journey to the Center of the Earth is a cornerstone of science fiction and one of the greatest stories ever told. This ebook edition contains the classic Ward Lock & Co. translation of 1877, one of the first English-language versions faithful to the original French.   This ebook has been professionally proofread to ensure accuracy and readability on all devices.

In this classic novel, first published in 1864, the author introduces readers to Otto Lidenbrock, a professor of geology who ventures into a fantastical world within an extinct Icelandic volcano. Verne's vivid imagination and masterful storytelling ability has made this book a popular choice among readers for more than 140 years.

The resulting dialogue is one of the most original, provocative, and spontaneous exchanges to have occurred between contemporary philosophers, and above all serves as a concise introduction to their basic theories. What begins as a philosophical argument rooted in linguistics (Chomsky) and the theory of knowledge (Foucault), soon evolves into a broader discussion encompassing a wide range of topics, from science, history, and behaviorism to creativity, freedom, and the struggle for justice in the realm of politics. In addition to the debate itself, this volume features a newly written introduction by noted Foucault scholar John Rajchman and includes substantial additional texts by Chomsky and Foucault., Journey to the Center of the Earth, Journey to the center of the EarthJules Verne., Journey to the center of the earth, Journey to the center of the earth /Jules Verne., Journey to the center of the earthJules Verne., MWT11284936, MWT11463369, MWT11480278, MWT11559016, MWT11602174, MWT11725607, MWT11837958, Made available through hoopla, Midwestrda, Mode of access: World Wide Web., Newbern, George,1964-narrator., One hundred fifty years later, Jules Verne's epic novel of science and adventure is just as thrilling as when it was first published.
