    Individuality and Beyond
  • Author : Benedetta Zavatta

  • ISBN : 9780190929213

  • Genre : Literary Criticism
  • Though few might think to connect the two figures, Ralph Waldo Emerson was an important influence on Friedrich Nietzsche. Specifically, Emerson played a fundamental role in shaping Nietzsche's philosophical ideas on individualism, perfectionism, and the pursuit of virtue, as well as his critiques of social conditioning, religious dogmatism, and anti-natural morality. With Individuality and Beyond, Benedetta Zavatta offers the first philosophical interpretation of Emerson's influence on Nietzsche based on a sound philological analysis of previously unpublished materials from Nietzsche's private library. Nietzsche's collection reveals numerous copies of Emerson's essays covered with annotations and marginalia as Nietzsche revisited these works throughout his life. Through close-reading, Zavatta casts a new light on the ways in which Emerson's work informed Nietzsche's defining ideas of self-creation, the relation between fate and free will, overcoming morality of customs and achieving moral autonomy, and the transvaluation of such values as compassion and altruism. Zavatta organizes these concepts into two main lines of thought: the first concerns the development of the individual personality, or the achievement of intellectual and moral autonomy and original self-expression. The second, on the contrary, concerns the overcoming of individuality and the need to transcend a limited view of the world by continually questioning one's own values and engaging with opposing perspectives. Ultimately, Zavatta clarifies the surprising contributions that Emerson made to 20th century European philosophy. She provides a fresh portrait of Emerson as an American thinker long stereotyped as a na�ve idealist disinterested in the social issues of his day. Seen through the eyes of Nietzsche, his acute interpreter, Emerson becomes an incisive cultural critic, whose contributions underpin contemporary philosophy.

  • The first three books of the Seeker's Series, available for the first time in a boxed set! "You told me you care about me. I need you to know that I care about you, too. So much that it hurts." Book One, Seeker's World: On her seventeenth birthday, Vega Sloane receives a strange and puzzling gift: a key in the shape of a dragon's head, along with a note that claims she's destined to save the world. When the handsome and mysterious Callum Drake enters her life, she finds herself inextricably drawn to him, and more questions begin to arise. Who is the boy beyond the exquisite façade and charming smile? Vega soon discovers that she's being recruited to attend a magical Academy in a world beyond her own--a school where those known as the Blood-Born train and compete to see who comes out on top. The only problem? Everyone seems to want her dead. Book Two, Seeker's Quest: I was alone with no heroic prince racing to save me, no merciful lord to offer me a stay of execution, and only myself to rely on. I could only hope that this time, I would be enough. Vega Sloane's brother and best friend have been taken, and it's up to her to bring them back to the safety of their own world. But what seems like a simple rescue mission quickly turns into something far more perilous than Vega could ever have imagined. Trapped in a place where nothing is quite as it seems, she can't help but wonder if she'll ever find her way back to the Academy, to the strange new friends she's met...and to the mysterious boy who has captured her heart. In her first encounter with the Usurper Queen, Vega learns that she's not the only one with family secrets. Then again, some secrets are best left unsaid.Seeker's Quest is the second book in the Seeker's World Series. Book Three, Seeker's Fate: With Vega Sloane's return to Fairhaven comes the beginning of her senior year at Plymouth High. Which, of course, means friends, parties, and drama. Tensions arise with her best friend, Liv, who isn't exactly excited by Vega's new circle of friends...not to mention that keeping a constant eye out for mortal enemies can seriously eat into a girl's social life. But a Seeker's work is never finished, and Vega has a crucial task ahead of her: find the Lyre of Adair before the Usurper Queen's minions do. These are the first three books of the Seeker's Series...but there are more to come! "Seeker's World is all I hoped for in a fantasy and even more." "This book will keep you riveted" "A page turner. It stirred up memories of how I felt reading the Twilight Series. Love the characters."

  • Reader Reviews :
  • Genre : Political Science
  • This book presents a comprehensive assessment of regional responses to the crisis in the asylum/refugee system and critically examines how different regions tackle the problem. The chapters consider the fundamental challenges which undermine an effective asylum process as well as regional difficulties with the various circumstances surrounding asylum seekers. With contributions on Africa, Europe, Latin America, South Asia and the Middle East, and the Pacific, the collection strives to appreciate what informs each region’s approach to the asylum process and asks if there are issues common to every region and if regions can learn from one another. The book seeks an understanding of the existing legal regime for the protection of asylum seekers and how regional institutions such as human rights commissions and regional courts enforce and adjudicate the law. The volume will be valuable to those interested in international law, migration and human rights.

    The Romantic Hero and His Heirs in French Literature

  • Publisher : New York : P. Lang
  • Pages : 287
  • ISBN : UOM:39015011285668
  • Reader Reviews :
  • Genre : Literary Criticism
  • Our contemporary view of the romantic hero is blurred by infrequently examined assumptions. The purpose of Professor Bishop's book on The Romantic Hero and his Heirs is two-fold: to draw a precise and updated portrait of the original romantic hero in French literature and then to trace his legitimate heirs from the romantic period to the middle of the twentieth century - and beyond. By bringing together his own findings and those of other scholars he establishes the important fact of literary history that the romantic hero is the central hero of modern French literature. The book offers not only a detailed description and genealogy of a significant literary hero, it also provides a des- cription of the modern sensibility. This is an ambitious and convincing work of vast and precise erudition.

  • Author : Robert Ohotto
  • Publisher : Hay House, Inc
  • Pages : 206
  • ISBN : 1401920608
  • Reader Reviews :
  • Genre : Self-Help
  • In this penetrating book, renowned intuitive, speaker, and teacher Robert Ohotto guides us on an investigation of the Heroic Journey of the Soul. Exploring three modern-day manifestations of Fate, he shows how psychic energy from family patterns, cultural influences, generational legacy, and global evolution inform our self-concept every day, and how they often block our highest potential and "Fate" us to challenging circumstances and relationships. But, he reveals, these Fated encounters are actually the keys to our unlived life. Each chapter maps our psyche and unravels the mysterious connections of Fate, Free Will, and Destiny, transforming our Fate into Destiny and our limitations into gifts. Through this seminal work based on years of experience, discover how we’ve made two fundamental agreements with the Universe as part of our Heroic Journey—one with Fate and the other with Destiny. As we learn to dance with these two forces, they become two voices challenging and beckoning us to discover our ultimate purpose—the primary task of the modern-day Hero and Heroine; and in the process, serve to unleash the power of our Soul in delivering grace to the world.

    Ship of Fate
  • Author : Trần Đình Trụ
  • Publisher : University of Hawaii Press
  • Pages : 225
  • ISBN : 9780824872434
  • Reader Reviews :
  • Genre : History
  • Ship of Fate tells the emotionally gripping story of a Vietnamese military officer who evacuated from Saigon in 1975 but made the dramatic decision to return to Vietnam for his wife and children, rather than resettle in the United States without them. Written in Vietnamese in the years just after 1991, when he and his family finally immigrated to the United States, Trần Đình Trụ’s memoir provides a detailed and searing account of his individual trauma as a refugee in limbo, and then as a prisoner in the Vietnamese reeducation camps. In April 1975, more than 120,000 Indochinese refugees sought and soon gained resettlement in the United States. While waiting in the Guam refugee camps, however, approximately 1,500 Vietnamese men and women insisted in no uncertain terms on being repatriated back to Vietnam. Trần was one of these repatriates. To resolve the escalating crisis, the U.S. government granted the Vietnamese a large ship, the Việt Nam Thương Tín. An experienced naval commander, Trần became the captain of the ship and sailed the repatriates back to Vietnam in October 1975. On return, he was imprisoned and underwent forced labor for more than twelve years. Trần’s account reveals a hidden history of refugee camps on Guam, internal divisions among Vietnamese refugees, political disputes between the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees and the U.S. government, and the horror of the postwar “reeducation” camps. While there are countless books on the U.S. war in Vietnam, there are still relatively few in English that narrate the war from a Vietnamese perspective. This translation adds new and unexpected dimensions to the U.S. military’s final withdrawal from Vietnam.

  • Genre : Religion
  • Dream Quest reveals a series of vivid lucid dreams that foretell the future and delve into the nature of being. The dreams happened as described, although they are presented within the context of a fictionalized trek that is set on the slopes of New Hampshire’s Mount Major. Alexander and his companions Verity and Futura eventually find refuge from the night’s chill within Madame Leonedria’s grotto. Therein, his dreams about the future, human nature, and reality are discussed in depth. Alexander felt both cursed and blessed by these remarkable events, for the gift that allowed him to find a metaphysical path to God’s door slowly began consuming his mind. Indeed, the condition that sparked his visions degenerated Alexander’s brain, and his memories are now fading. However, the experiences were recorded long ago, and they leave a message that might change your life. This is far more than a book about spirituality or morality. This is a quest for purpose.

  • Genre : Nature
  • “If Tom Montgomery Fate has not found the secret formula for the deliberate, balanced life, he is a chief disciple of the search.”—Chicago Tribune Try to imagine Thoreau married, with a job, three kids, and a minivan. This is the sensibility—serious yet irreverent—that suffuses Cabin Fever, as the author seeks to apply the hermit-philosopher’s insights to a busy modern life. Tom Montgomery Fate lives in a Chicago suburb, where he is a husband, father, professor, and active member of his community. He also lives in a cabin built with the help of friends in the Michigan woods, where he walks by the river, chops wood, and reads Thoreau by candlelight. Fate seeks a more attentive, deliberate way of seeing the world and our place in it, not only in the woods but also in the context of our relationships and society. In his search for “a more deliberate life” amid a high-tech, material world, Fate invites readers into an interrogation of their own lives, and into a new kind of vision: the possibility of enough in a culture of more.

  • Negotiating National Identities presents an empirically detailed and theoretically wide-ranging analysis of the complex political and cultural struggles taking place in contemporary Europe. Taking contemporary Austria and her controversial identity politics as its central case study in a discussion of developments across a variety of national and pan-European contexts, this book demonstrates that neo-nationalism has been one among several competing reactions to the processes and challenges of globalization, whilst inclusive notions of identity and belonging are shown to have emerged from the realms of civil society and cultural production.

Summoned by a desperate stranger's spell in a last ditch effort to fix a colossal screw-up, Fate's cast into a secret world bound by the ancient Book of Fables to retrieve a magical object powerful enough to set everything right. The only problem is, once she's inside this savage wonderland, her only way out is to change the endings of the book's eight dark fables into their mirror opposites. Fortunately, she doesn't have to run this gauntlet alone because she meets the mysteriously familiar Finn, who's as inexplicably drawn to her as she is to him.As they endure horrors beyond imagining, Fate awakens to powers she never knew she possessed and Finn questions his very existence, while an insidious darkness changes him in frightening ways. Ultimately, Fate must confront the faceless evil concealing itself behind the eyes of her one true love or remain trapped within the Book of Fables forever.

    History of a Pleasure Seeker
  • Author : Richard Mason
  • Publisher : Vintage
  • Pages : 288
  • ISBN : 9780307957528
  • Reader Reviews : 13
  • Genre : Fiction
  • From the acclaimed author of The Drowning People (“A literary sensation” —The New York Times Book Review) and Natural Elements (“A magnum opus” —The New Yorker), an opulent, romantic coming-of-age drama set at the height of Europe’s belle époque, written in the grand tradition with a lightness of touch that is wholly modern and original. The novel opens in Amsterdam at the turn of the last century. It moves to New York at the time of the 1907 financial crisis and proceeds onboard a luxury liner headed for Cape Town. It is about a young man—Piet Barol—with an instinctive appreciation for pleasure and a gift for finding it. Piet’s father is an austere administrator at Holland’s oldest university. His mother, a singing teacher, has died—but not before giving him a thorough grounding in the arts of charm. Piet applies for a job as tutor to the troubled son of Europe’s leading hotelier: a child who refuses to leave his family’s mansion on Amsterdam’s grandest canal. As the young man enters this glittering world, he learns its secrets—and soon, quietly, steadily, finds his life transformed as he in turn transforms the lives of those around him. History of a Pleasure Seeker is a brilliantly written portrait of the senses, a novel about pleasure and those who are in search of it; those who embrace it, luxuriate in it, need it; and those who deprive themselves of it as they do those they love. It is a book that will beguile and transport you—to another world, another time, another state of being.
