Contemplating Edith Stein


Controversy surrounding the beatification and canonization of Edith Stein, a Catholic convert of Jewish heritage who was murdered at Auschwitz, has eclipsed scholarly and public attention to Stein's extraordinary development as a philosopher. She succeeded in extending phenomenological inquiry into the nature of person, community, and state; in analyzing the truth claims of empathic knowledge; in probing the foundations of pedagogy; and in offering a synthesis of medieval philosophy and phenomenology. Only the second woman in German history to be awarded a Ph.D. in philosophy, Stein ranks among the leading early-twentieth-century European intellectuals. She also made lasting contributions, both intellectual and practical, to women's education, freedom, and equality in Germany. The sixteen essays in this collection, written by scholars from the United States and Europe, critically examine her legacy. This volume represents the first comprehensive interdisciplinary analysis in English of Stein's life and philosophical writings. The book is divided into three sections-biographical explorations, Stein's feminist theory and pedagogy, and her creative philosophical contributions. The essays in this volume also situate Stein's life and thought in the complex historical context of early-twentieth-century Germany.

Singing in the Rain (+CD)


'I'm singing in the rain, Just singing in the rain. What a glorious feeling. I'm happy again!' Based on the classic song, this beautifully illustrated picture book celebrates rain and all its fun. Jump in puddles, raise umbrellas, and dance with joy through the pages of this gorgeous story. Sweet and positive in its message, with bright, eye-catching art, this book is an uplifting celebration of rain! 'Singing in the Rain' is one of the world's best-loved songs and the centrepiece of one of my favourite films. I love the song's positive message, and the iconic sequence of Gene Kelly dancing in the rain always raises a smile. As adults we tend to think of rain as an inconvenience rather than the joyous thing that it is. Next time it rains, step outside, feel the rain on your face, and give the clouds up above your biggest smile!'

Gertrude Stein The Autobiography of Alice B. Toklas


Facsimile of 1933 Edition. The Autobiography of Alice B. Toklas is written by Stein in the guise of an autobiography authored by Alice B. Toklas, her life partner. In 1998, Modern Library ranked it as one of the 20 greatest English-language nonfiction books of the 20th Century. It is a fascinating recollection of the art scene in Paris as the couple were friends with Paul Cézanne, Henri Matisse and Pablo Picasso. They begin the war years in England but return to France, volunteering for the American Fund for the French Wounded, driving around France, helping the wounded and homeless. They become friends with Sherwood Anderson and Ernest Hemingway. It is by most accounts one of the best descriptions of the lives and morays of the American and European literary and artistic scene between the wars.

Gertrude Stein Tender Buttons by Stein, Fiction, Literary, LGBT, Gay


The change of color is likely and a difference a very little difference is prepared. Sugar is not a vegetable. -- Gertrude Stein Gertrude Stein wrote many odd and peculiar texts and this work -- Tender Buttons -- is among the best known of them. Stein's wonderful and peculiar approach to the language seems to focus on sounds and rhythms rather than the sense of words. Abandoning the sense of things, it's said, she attempted to capture "moments of consciousness," independent of time and memory. That may and may not be the case, but over the years, this and many similar works have been described by critics as a "feminist reworking of patriarchal language." We don't know about that, but we do like the work, just as we like Stein.

Murray Stein In Midlife. A Jungian Perspective


Midlife = crisis, anger, & change…So pervasive has the general awareness of this phenomenon of midlife crisis and transformation become that as we approach this time of life we almost automatically begin to brace for a psychological emergency. Drawing on analytic experience, dreams, and myths, Murray Stein, a well-known analyst, formulates the three main features of the middle passage. First an erosion of attachments. Then hints of a fresh spirit, renegade and mischievous, that scoffs at routines. This new spirit disrupts life and alarms family and friends. Finally, with luck, a transformation occurs; life begins again. Dr. Stein has written a best-selling, good-humored book, brimming with shrewd counsel and cultural relevance.Contents: Chapter 1: Hermes, Guide of Souls through LiminalityChapter 2: Burying the Dead: The Entry into the Midlife TransitionChapter 3: Liminality and the SoulChapter 4: The Return of the Repressed during Midlife LiminalityChapter 5: The Lure to Soul-Mating in Midlife LiminalityChapter 6: Through the Region of Hades: A Steep Descent in Midlife’s LiminalityChapter 7: On the Road of Life after MidlifeMurray Stein, Ph.D. is a supervising training analyst and former president of The International School of Analytical Psychology in Zurich, Switzerland (ISAP Zurich).

Moritz Hauptmann The Nature of Harmony and Metre


This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1888 edition. Excerpt: ...cannot be represented in a chord with the contents C--e--G--b--D, but only in the notes b--D--e--G; that is, in the union of the triads e--G--b and G--b--D. We have similarly seen the passages into the wholly disjunct triads, e.g. from C--e--G into b--D,F and DF--a, always resulting in unions of triads most nearly related to one another: the first in b--D--F--G, the second in C--D--F--a. Therefore the so-called chords of the Ninth, Eleventh, and Thirteenth are self-excluded from the harmony of dissonance which springs from the union of triads. 239. To resolve the chord G--b--D--a or G--b--D--F--a let us make the notea descend to G. That by this no resolution of the dissonance G--a is effected is plain; for, considering the combination G--a in itself and keeping inside the key of C major, that could only consist in progression to F--a, to G--b, or to F--b. Consequently, in the passage G--b--D--a-G--b--D--G the lowest note of the first chord is entirely neglected in the resolution, and the dissonance b-a is alone taken into account, for which the resolution b G is given. A direct harmonic reference between the outer parts is no more to be pretended in this chord of the Ninth K 2 and its resolution than in the series continued in the descending sequence Gb-...

The Principle of Individuation suggests new approaches, on both personal and communal levels, for gaining freedom from the compulsion to repeat endlessly the dysfunctional patterns that have conditioned us. In this concise and contemporary account of the process of individuation, Murray Stein sets out its two basic movements and then examines the central role of numinous experience, the critical importance of initiation, and the unique psychic space required for its unfolding.

C. G. Jung on Christianity


C. G. Jung, son of a Swiss Reformed pastor, used his Christian background throughout his career to illuminate the psychological roots of all religions. Jung believed religion was a profound, psychological response to the unknown--both the inner self and the outer worlds--and he understood Christianity to be a profound meditation on the meaning of the life of Jesus of Nazareth within the context of Hebrew spirituality and the Biblical worldview. Murray Stein's introduction relates Jung's personal relationship with Christianity to his psychological views on religion in general, his hermeneutic of religious thought, and his therapeutic attitude toward Christianity. This volume includes extensive selections from Psychological Approach to the Dogma of the Trinity," "Christ as a Symbol of the Self," from Aion, "Answer to Job," letters to Father Vincent White from Letters, and many more.

Ruzzi Alessandro Symmetric varieties


A homogeneous symmetric variety is the quotient G/H of a semi-simple algebraic group by the subgroup of elements fixed by a given involution of G. The most important example is given by a semi-simple group G' under the action of G = G' x G' by left and right multiplication. In this publication, we are interested to the complete symmetric varieties, namely the (smooth) equivariant compactifications of G/H. Chirivì and Maffei proved the surjectivity of the multiplication of sections of any two globally generated line bundles on a wonderful symmetric variety. First, we study the same problem in the case of a complete toroidal symmetric variety. We reduce such a problem to the analogous problem on the corresponding closed (respectively open) toric variety. We analyze in details some family of complete toroidal symmetric varieties, in particular those of rank 2. In the last part of this work, we study the Fano symmetric varieties. In particular, we classify the toroidal Fano complete symmetric varieties of rank 2 and the Fano complete symmetric varieties of rank 3 obtainables from the wonderful variety through a sequence of blow-ups along G stable subvarieties.

In this book, Chesterton explores the relationship between Evolution and Christianity, the growth and role of the Church, as well as providing an in-depth analysis of Paganism. Gilbert Keith Chesterton was born in London in 1874. He studied at the Slade School of Art, and upon graduating began to work as a freelance journalist. By 1905, he had a regular and popular column with the Illustrated London News, and began to write on an array of topics. Over the course of his life, his literary output was incredibly diverse and highly prolific, ranging from philosophy and ontology to art criticism and detective fiction. However, he is probably best-remembered for his Christian apologetics, most notably in The Everlasting Man.

David Gould Lameco Eskrima. The Legacy of Edgar Sulite


In the art of Eskrima, few names resound like the late Edgar Sulite's. This young man from the Philippines sought out numerous masters, tested his skill in challenge matches, and developed a system called LAMECO (an acronym for Largo, Medio, Corto; the 3 fighting ranges of Eskrima). In this unique book, Sulite's "backyard" student and close friend Guro David E. Gould recounts the life, the art and the legend of Punong Guro Edgar G. Sulite and his Lameco Eskrima system.Broke down into 10 distinct chapters, Lameco Eskrima: The Legacy of Edgar G. Sulite, shows the evolution of a fighter and his art, from the early years of training in Tacloban City and Ozamis City, with legendary masters to the founding of Lameco Eskrima and Sulite's meeting in Manila of such notable figures as Christopher Ricketts, Tony Diego and Tatang Ilustrisimo. Chapter 4 discusses the writing of Sulite's three classic books, his world tour and challenge matches. This is followed by chapters on Sulite's relocation to Los Angeles, the spread of his art internationally, and his invitation-only backyard class. The late Punong Guro used to say that one must try their best to get a collective understanding, a complete image of a person by looking into all available sources. This book, and these last chapters, provides such insights and exposure found nowhere else.

Primack Richard B. Tropical Rain Forests. An Ecological and Biogeographical Comparison


The first edition of Tropical Rain Forests: an Ecological and Biogeographical Comparison exploded the myth of ‘the rain forest’ as a single, uniform entity. In reality, the major tropical rain forest regions, in tropical America, Africa, Southeast Asia, Madagascar, and New Guinea, have as many differences as similarities, as a result of their isolation from each other during the evolution of their floras and faunas. This new edition reinforces this message with new examples from recent and on-going research. After an introduction to the environments and geological histories of the major rain forest regions, subsequent chapters focus on plants, primates, carnivores and plant-eaters, birds, fruit bats and gliding animals, and insects, with an emphasis on the ecological and biogeographical differences between regions. This is followed by a new chapter on the unique tropical rain forests of oceanic islands. The final chapter, which has been completely rewritten, deals with the impacts of people on tropical rain forests and discusses possible conservation strategies that take into account the differences highlighted in the previous chapters. This exciting and very readable book, illustrated throughout with color photographs, will be invaluable reading for undergraduate students in a wide range of courses as well as an authoritative reference for graduate and professional ecologists, conservationists, and interested amateurs.
