Book Summary:

From the internationally bestselling author of Love's Executioner and When Nietzsche Wept, comes a novel of group therapy with a cast of memorably wounded characters struggling to heal pain and change lives Suddenly confronted with his own mortality after a routine checkup, eminent psychotherapist Julius Hertzfeld is forced to reexamine his life and work -- and seeks out Philip Slate, a sex addict whom he failed to help some twenty years earlier. Yet Philip claims to be cured -- miraculously transformed by the pessimistic teachings of German philosopher Arthur Schopenhauer -- and is, himself, a philosophical counselor in training. Philip's dour, misanthropic stance compels Julius to invite Philip to join his intensive therapy group in exchange for tutoring on Schopenhauer. But with mere months left, life may be far too short to help Philip or to compete with him for the hearts and minds of the group members. And then again, it might be just long enough.

Book Summary:

Beyond Good and Evil (German: Jenseits von Gut und Böse), subtitled "Prelude to a Philosophy of the Future" (Vorspiel einer Philosophie der Zukunft), is a book by the German philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche, first published in 1886. It takes up and expands on the ideas of his previous work, Thus Spoke Zarathustra, but approached from a more critical, polemical direction. In Beyond Good and Evil, Nietzsche attacks past philosophers for their alleged lack of critical sense and their blind acceptance of Christian premises in their consideration of morality. The work moves into the realm "beyond good and evil" in the sense of leaving behind the traditional morality which Nietzsche subjects to a destructive critique in favour of what he regards as an affirmative approach that fearlessly confronts the perspectival nature of knowledge and the perilous condition of the modern individual.

Book Summary:

From the bestselling author of Love's Executioner and When Nietzsche Wept comes a provocative exploration of the unusual relationships three therapists form with their patients. Seymour is a therapist of the old school who blurs the boundary of sexual propriety with one of his clients. Marshal, who is haunted by his own obsessive-compulsive behaviors, is troubled by the role money plays in his dealings with his patients. Finally, there is Ernest Lash. Driven by his sincere desire to help and his faith in psychoanalysis, he invents a radically new approach to therapy -- a totally open and honest relationship with a patient that threatens to have devastating results. Exposing the many lies that are told on and off the psychoanalyst's couch, Lying on the Couch gives readers a tantalizing, almost illicit, glimpse at what their therapists might really be thinking during their sessions. Fascinating, engrossing and relentlessly intelligent, it ultimately moves readers with a denouement of surprising humanity and redemptive faith.

Book Summary:

As the public grows disillusioned with therapeutic quick fixes, people are looking for a deeper psychotherapeutic experience to make life more meaningful and satisfying. What really happens in therapy? What promises and perils does it hold for them? No one writes about therapy - or indeed the dilemmas of the human condition - with more acuity, style, and heart than Irvin Yalom. Here he combines the storytelling skills so widely praised in Love's Executioner with the wisdom of the compassionate and fully engaged psychotherapist. In these six compelling tales of therapy, Yalom introduces us to an unforgettable cast of characters: Paula, who faces death and stares it down; Magnolia, into whose ample lap Yalom longs to pour his own sorrows; Irene, who learns to seek out anger and plunge into it. And there's Momma, old-fashioned, ill-tempered, who drifts into Yalom's dreams and tramples through his thoughts. At once wildly entertaining and deeply thoughtful, Momma and the Meaning of Life is a work of rare insight and imagination.

Prin urmare, secolul al XIX-lea prezintă atât învingătorii, cum este Napoleon, cât şi învinşii, cum este omul mărunt, neputincios în faţa puterii perfecte a maşinii. Ambele căi sunt relevante, intrând ulterior masiv în sintaxa socio-culturală, ideologică şi politică a secolului XX.

Book Summary:

Published in 1918, The View of Life is Georg Simmel’s final work. Famously deemed “the brightest man in Europe” by George Santayana, Simmel addressed diverse topics across his essayistic writings, which influenced scholars in aesthetics, epistemology, and sociology. Nevertheless, certain core issues emerged over the course of his career—the genesis, structure, and transcendence of social and cultural forms, and the nature and conditions of authentic individuality, including the role of mindfulness regarding mortality. Composed not long before his death, The View of Life was, Simmel wrote, his “testament,” a capstone work of profound metaphysical inquiry intended to formulate his conception of life in its entirety. Now Anglophone readers can at last read in full the work that shaped the argument of Heidegger’s Being and Time and whose extraordinary impact on European intellectual life between the wars was extolled by Jürgen Habermas. Presented alongside these seminal essays are aphoristic fragments from Simmel’s last journal, providing a beguiling look into the mind of one of the twentieth century’s greatest thinkers.

  • File Pdf: cervantes-the-golden-age-and-the-battle-for-cultural-identity-in-20th-century-spain.pdf

Book Summary:

Studies that connect the Spanish 17th and 20th centuries usually do so through a conservative lens, assuming that the blunt imperialism of the early modern age, endlessly glorified by Franco's dictatorship, was a constant in the Spanish imaginary. This book, by contrast, recuperates the thriving, humanistic vision of the Golden Age celebrated by Spanish progressive thinkers, writers, and artists in the decades prior to 1939 and the Francoist Regime. The hybrid, modern stance of the country in the 1920s and early 1930s would uniquely incorporate the literary and political legacies of the Spanish Renaissance into the ambitious design of a forward, democratic future. In exploring the complex understanding of the multifaceted event that is modernity, the life story and literary opus of Miguel de Cervantes (1547-1616) acquires a new significance, given the weight of the author in the poetic and political endeavors of those Spanish left-wing reformists who believed they could shape a new Spanish society. By recovering their progressive dream, buried for almost a century, of incipient and full Spanish modernities, Ana María G. Laguna establishes a more balanced understanding of both the modern and early modern periods and casts doubt on the idea of a persistent conservatism in Golden Age literature and studies. This book ultimately serves as a vigorous defense of the canonical as well as the neglected critical traditions that promoted Cervantes's humanism in the 20th century.

Book Summary:

Alors que les Lumières se sont éteintes, la figure romantique du Christ qui se dessine fait du XIXe siècle le siècle pathétique par excellence. Si Dieu n’est pas ou n’est plus, le Christ n’est pas ressuscité, il n’est qu’un homme. Mais cet homme est le Fils de l’Homme, le témoin et le représentant de l’Humanité, dans sa lutte et dans ses souffrances. Aussi le siècle du romantisme est-il partagé entre incrédulité ou nostalgie, d’une part, hostilité ou enrôlement d’autre part. Toujours est-il que Jésus tourmente les poètes et stimule les révolutionnaires, tout en continuant de guider l’imposante cohorte des croyants. Dans cet ouvrage, le père Xavier Tilliette présente, sous la forme d’une collection de brèves monographies, un vaste panorama des différentes figures du Christ qui traversent la littérature romantique européenne du XIXe siècle. L’abondance et la diversité des citations (Brentano, Chateaubriand, Dostoïevski, Fichte, Jean Paul, Lamartine, Schelling...) fait de ce livre une véritable anthologie. Une collection de référence en christologie sous la direction de Monseigneur Doré.

Book Summary:

A haunting portrait of Arthur Rosenberg, one of Nazism's chief architects, and his obsession with one of history's most influential Jewish thinkers In The Spinoza Problem, Irvin Yalom spins fact and fiction into an unforgettable psycho-philosophical drama. Yalom tells the story of the seventeenth-century thinker Baruch Spinoza, whose philosophy led to his own excommunication from the Jewish community, alongside that of the rise and fall of the Nazi ideologue Alfred Rosenberg, who two hundred years later during World War II ordered his task force to plunder Spinoza's ancient library in an effort to deal with the Nazis' "Spinoza Problem." Seamlessly alternating between Golden Age Amsterdam and Nazi Germany, Yalom investigates the inner lives of these two enigmatic men in a tale of influence and anxiety, the origins of good and evil, and the philosophy of freedom and the tyranny of terror.

Book Summary:

Emerson and Thoreau are the most celebrated odd couple of nineteenth-century American literature. Appearing to play the roles of benign mentor and eager disciple, they can also be seen as bitter rivals: America's foremost literary statesman, protective of his reputation, and an ambitious and sometimes refractory protege. The truth, Joel Porte maintains, is that Emerson and Thoreau were complementary literary geniuses, mutually inspiring and inspired. In this book of essays, Porte focuses on Emerson and Thoreau as writers. He traces their individual achievements and their points of intersection, arguing that both men, starting from a shared belief in the importance of self-culture, produced a body of writing that helped move a decidedly provincial New England readership into the broader arena of international culture. It is a book that will appeal to all readers interested in the writings of Emerson and Thoreau.

Musica e metafora: storia analisi ermeneutica

Book Summary:

A cosa servono le metafore? Le metafore con cui descriviamo la musica sono “impertinenze” del linguaggio, fantasiose licenze di scrittura? Oppure in qualche modo ci conducono più vicino al fatto musicale nella sua essenza? Il rapporto tra metafora e musica è stato fino a oggi trascurato: l’elaborazione di una teoria della metafora che mettesse al centro il rapporto tra segni verbali e strutture musicali non è mai stata veramente posta in agenda dai musicologi. Il tema è rimasto latente in alcune classiche dicotomie che attraversano la discussione musicologica, come intramusicale versus extramusicale, immanente versus trascendente, struttura versus semantica, senso versus significato. È arduo tuttavia stabilire quale sia il discrimine tra il parlar della musica in senso proprio e in senso figurato. Le metafore insite nei concetti musicali non sono infatti un mero abbellimento di presunti modi letterali di nominare la musica, ma sono la sostanza stessa del nostro armamentario concettuale. Se le metafore sono un vettore della concettualizzazione musicale, esse sono importanti in pari misura per la riflessione estetico-filosofica intorno alla musica e per l’analisi musicale vera e propria. I processi di comparazione metaforica sono un tratto connaturato al modo in cui pensiamo la musica, al modo in cui la descriviamo e la verbalizziamo, forse persino al modo in cui la ascoltiamo. Pensare, parlare o scrivere di musica, insomma, vuol dire rapportarsi a essa nei termini di qualcos’altro, metaforicamente appunto.

Book Summary:

Regarding philosophical importance, Edmund Husserl is arguably "the" German export of the early twentieth century. In the wake of the linguistic turn(s) of the humanities, however, his claim to return to the "Sachen selbst" became metonymic for the neglect of language in Western philosophy. This view has been particularly influential in post-structural literary theory, which has never ceased to attack the supposed "logophobie" of phenomenology. "Phenomenology to the Letter. Husserl and Literature" challenges this verdict regarding the poetological and logical implications of Husserl’s work through a thorough re-examination of his writing in the context of literary theory, classical rhetoric, and modern art. At issue is an approach to phenomenology and literature that does not merely coordinate the two discourses but explores their mutual implication. Contributions to the volume attend to the interplay between phenomenology and literature (both fiction and poetry), experience and language, as well as images and embodiment. The volume is the first of its kind to chart a phenomenological approach to literature and literary approach to phenomenology. As such it stands poised to make a novel contribution to literary studies and philosophy.

Book Summary:

In nineteenth-century Vienna, a drama of love, fate, and will is played out amid the intellectual ferment that defined the era. Josef Breuer, one of the founding fathers of psychoanalysis, is at the height of his career. Friedrich Nietzsche, Europe's greatest philosopher, is on the brink of suicidal despair, unable to find a cure for the headaches and other ailments that plague him. When he agrees to treat Nietzsche with his experimental “talking cure,” Breuer never expects that he too will find solace in their sessions. Only through facing his own inner demons can the gifted healer begin to help his patient. In When Nietzsche Wept, Irvin Yalom blends fact and fiction, atmosphere and suspense, to unfold an unforgettable story about the redemptive power of friendship.

"No mundo atual, em décadas recentes, assistimos ao recrudescimento do fundamentalismo religioso, cristão, judaico e muçulmano. Em contrapartida, o ateísmo também cresce, pelo menos no lado ocidental do universo. E isso intriga um pouco mais do que o aumento da fé, pois acreditar em algo superior é da natureza humana, como provam as civilizações mais antigas e as mais primitivas. O HOMEM SEM DEUS fala da solidão fundamental do homem descrente, tomando como modelo três grandes personagens da cultura ocidental: Charles Darwin, criador da Teoria da Evolução, o filósofo Friedrich Nietzsche e Sigmund Freud, criador da Teoria do Inconsciente, expoentes máximos do ateísmo moderno, que carregam as raízes e os frutos amargos da ausência de Deus.

Book Summary:

This volume examines the entire logical and philosophical production of Nicolai A. Vasil’ev, studying his life and activities as a historian and man of letters. Readers will gain a comprehensive understanding of this influential Russian logician, philosopher, psychologist, and poet. The author frames Vasil’ev’s work within its historical and cultural context. He takes into consideration both the situation of logic in Russia and the state of logic in Western Europe, from the end of the 19th century to the beginning of the 20th. Following this, the book considers the attempts to develop non-Aristotelian logics or ideas that present affinities with imaginary logic. It then looks at the contribution of traditional logic in elaborating non-classical ideas. This logic allows the author to deal with incomplete objects just as imaginary logic does with contradictory ones. Both logics are objects of interesting analysis by modern researchers. This volume will appeal to graduate students and scholars interested not only in Vasil’ev’s work, but also in the history of non-classical logics.

Book Summary:

Il problema del rapporto tra musica e parola e tra parola e suono è una questione fondamentale per tutte le discipline che si occupano della musica: la filosofia della musica, l’estetica musicale, la letteratura musicale, la trattatistica musicale, la storia della musica. In termini moderni, tale problema ha assunto il nome, e conseguentemente le categorie, del rapporto tra linguaggio verbale e ciò che solo in tempi molto vicini al nostro si è chiamato linguaggio musicale: rapporto che è apparso di prossimità, di distanza, di contrasto, di fusione, di dissociazione, di imitazione, ma anche segnato da un dislivello costitutivo tra i due ambiti, e da differenze di principio. Nel corso dei secoli, dall’Antichità classica ai tempi moderni, il rapporto tra parola, musica e suono non ha cessato di configurarsi come problematico, tale da generare ancora altri problemi correlati e altri binomi obbligati. La riflessione che ne è scaturita ha contribuito a conferire uno slancio estremo allo stesso quesito relativo al senso della musica, quesito dibattuto con eguale intensità dalla filosofia quanto dalla poetica musicale. La posizione di tale problema ha determinato la questione, strettamente connessa, della valutazione estetica di quella che noi moderni abbiamo chiamato a volte “musica pura”: questione anch’essa affascinante per le diverse significazioni di cui la musica strumentale è stata considerata portatrice. I saggi compresi in questo volume fissano l’attenzione su alcuni tempi forti di tale complesso dibattito, trattando, in particolare, di Platone, il Medio Evo, Dante, Marsilio Ficino, il Seicento, Rousseau, Kant, il Romanticismo musicale, Adorno.

Book Summary:

Questo studio mette in crisi l’immagine di Nietzsche quale rappresentante dello spirito germanico mostrando la trama celata dei suoi testi. Nei suoi soggiorni a Nizza, Nietzsche incontra le novità parigine, dagli psicologi più raffinati ai romanciers dei boulevard. Il suo interesse per la Francia si era già manifestato sotto il segno della ragione classica in opposizione all’ideologia germanica di Wagner. Con Descartes, Nietzsche scopre il senso profondo della “passione della conoscenza” e il valore del metodo contro l’intuizione del genio romantico. È vasto l’universo di autori e di grandi maîtres de l’heure, come Taine e Renan, con cui Nietzsche si confronta nell’esplorazione di movimenti e contraddizioni dell’anima moderna. Distanti dall’analitica dissezione di Stendhal si trovano le nature tropicali di Parigi, “serra surriscaldata”: mostri, eroi, malati della volontà e grandi criminali, bestie e idealisti. Da questo caos incandescente potrà uscire l’uomo nuovo, europeo e sovraeuropeo, lontano dalle ristrettezze dell’Europa dei nazionalismi e delle improbabili razze.

Book Summary:

L’usanza di onorare il lavoro e l’esempio di un maestro che, pur cessando la posizione di ruolo nel contesto universitario, prosegue il proprio itinerario di studio e di insegnamento in altre forme ha una lunga storia in ambito accademico e non necessiterebbe di frasi altisonanti per essere motivata e ritenuta pienamente giustificata. Al tempo stesso, il tipo di magistero che nel corso di quasi cinquant’anni è stato promosso e realizzato in concreto da Adone Brandalise, insieme al tipo di rapporto intellettuale, creativo ed emotivo prodottosi con allievi e colleghi, rende questa occasione molto più di un semplice omaggio. Stando entro il linguaggio, si tratta di andare oltre il linguaggio, di aprire a un’esperienza che non è soltanto linguistica: si tocca – anche se solo provvisoriamente – il fondo senza fondo del reale e si incontra un certo tipo di sapere, indefinibile e sfuggente, che non liquida il proprio oggetto riducendolo a un saputo, ma mostra e permette di toccare una quota di felicità autentica, una pienezza d’essere che permette di diventare davvero soggetti.

Book Summary:

Cet essai raconte une histoire en grande partie oubliée après la Grande Guerre : celle des rapports entre Bergson et la philosophie allemande de son temps. De L’évolution créatrice à Les deux sources de la morale et de la religion, Bergson redéfinit profondément sa philosophie et introduit de nouveaux thèmes anthropologiques et moraux, qui font écho aux questions du débat allemand sur la philosophie de la vie. À travers la reconstitution de certaines polémiques allemandes dont Bergson est l’objet et auxquelles il participe durant ces années, l’analyse se concentre ici d’un côté sur la réception de son oeuvre en Allemagne et de l’autre, sur l’effet de retour impliqué par de tels dialogues sur la philosophie de Les deux sources. Un atlas philosophique composé de quatre étapes – Iéna, Berlin, Heidelberg et Göttingen – suivi d’une réflexion sur le moment de la Grande Guerre, offre la description des principaux transferts entre Bergson et des philosophes tels que Eucken, Simmel, Driesch, Windelband et Scheler. Sur fond d’échanges avec ses interlocuteurs d’outre-Rhin, le dernier Bergson retrouve sa stature européenne et apparaît comme un penseur des problèmes de la vie, de la technique, de l’histoire et de la guerre à la hauteur des débats contemporains autour de ces thèmes.

Book Summary:

Between 1513 and 1525 Niccolò Machiavelli wrote a series of works dealing with political, military, and historical matters. One of these (the 'Arte della guerra') was published in 1521, but the rest of his major writings were not published until 1531-2, nearly five years after his death. They continued to be reissued regularly, well into the early seventeenth century. The popularity of Machiavelli's books, the variety of his themes, the different contexts within which he was studied, the range of readers' interests, and the fact that his name entered the vocabulary of every European language - all make his early reception a fruitful field of enquiry. Historians of ideas have tended to tidy up the past in order to make it comprehensible but Sydney Anglo is concerned with heterogeneity, and with the often irrational and emotional aspects of sixteenth-century thought. Basing his research entirely upon primary sources he quotes extensively in the conviction that, in a battle of words, the words themselves and their tone convey more than summaries of intellectual abstractions. Authors - hostile, enthusiastic, and indifferent - are closely examined; and many different contexts, political and intellectual, are considered. Sometimes Machiavelli was influential, sometimes not, but in this history of his reception, silences often prove significant. Written in a lively and trenchant style, this new interpretation of the impact of Machievalli is an original contribution of high quality by a leading expert in the field of Renaissance studies.

Book Summary:

The subject of this study is the understanding of literature displayed by important French and Italian authors from Castiglione and Montaigne to Chateaubriand and Alfieri, who as members of the high aristocracy refused to adopt institutionalized auctorial roles. As 'the last witness of feudal mores' Frangois-Reni de Chateaubriand experienced the decline of the aristocratic way of life at first hand and engaged with this phenomenon in his works. In Romanticism, which he himself helped to establish, the aristocracy is transformed from the subject to the object of literature, thus becoming a fiction in its own right.
