Der von Mayer auf einer Reise nach Java konzipierte und 1842 aufgestellte Satz von der "Unzerstörlichkeit der Kraft" (Erhaltung der Energie) bildet einen Grundpfeiler moderner Naturwissenschaft; er bereitet den ersten Hauptsatz der Thermodynamik vor. Mit der Berechnung des mechanischen Wärmeäquivalents war das Verhältnis von mechanischer Bewegung und Wärme zum ersten Mal zahlenmäßig fixiert. – Das hier nach 105 Jahren wieder vorgelegte Buch, Erstling des 33 Jahre alten Friedlaender/Mynona, ist die früheste populäre Darstellung von Mayers tragischem Leben, seiner Schriften und der Folgen seiner Entdeckung. Es ist zugleich ein Lehrstück der Wissenschaftshistorie und der Kulturkriminalistik. – In der Einleitung schildert der Herausgeber die Entstehung des Buches und seine Rezeption, beleuchtet Mayers Stellung zu Kant und zur zeitgenössischen Naturphilosophie sowie zur Psychiatrie. Er zeigt auch, wie Friedlaender/Mynona die Gelegenheit nutzt, um sein eigenes Anliegen vorzutragen: einen philosophischen Polarismus, der die idealistischen Naturspekulationen Schellings unterläuft.
11th Ward Democratic committee office, Bridgeport, Chicago. Daley became chairman of the Central Committee of the Cook County Democratic Party, i. Holding this position along with the mayoralty in later years enhanced Daley’s power. Daley was first elected mayor in 1955. Daley was re-elected to that office five times and had been mayor for 21 years at the time of his death. Through those 21 years, the Illinois license plate on his car remained „708 222“.
Daley met Eleanor „Sis“ Guilfoyle at a local ball game. He courted „Sis“ for six years, during which time he finished law school and was established in his legal profession. They were married on June 17, 1936, and lived in a modest brick bungalow at 3536 South Lowe Avenue in the heavily Irish-American neighborhood of Bridgeport, just blocks from his birthplace.

Daley at the opening day parade for the Lakefront Festival, 1973. The year 1968 was a momentous year for Daley. In April, Daley was castigated by many for his sharp rhetoric in the aftermath of rioting that took place after Martin Luther King Jr. Displeased with what he saw as an over-cautious police response to the rioting, Daley chastised police superintendent James B. I said to him very emphatically and very definitely that an order be issued by him immediately to shoot to kill any arsonist or anyone with a Molotov cocktail in his hand, because they’re potential murderers, and to shoot to maim or cripple anyone looting. Reverend Jesse Jackson, for example, called it „a fascist’s response.
Later that month, Daley asserted, „There wasn’t any shoot-to-kill order. In August, the 1968 Democratic National Convention was held in Chicago. Intended to showcase Daley’s achievements to national Democrats and the news media, the proceedings during the convention instead garnered notoriety for the mayor and city, descending into verbal outbursts on the part of politicians, and a circus for the media. Public opinion polls conducted after the convention demonstrated that the majority of Americans supported the Mayor’s tactics. Daley was historically re-elected for the fifth time in 1971. However, many have argued this was due to a lack of formidable opposition rather than Daley’s own popularity. December 20, 1976, Daley collapsed on the city’s near-north side while on his way to lunch.
