In 2000, Heather Abel, a journalist and grad student, awoke from sedation at NYU Hospital to find three doctors standing over her bed. They told her that she had the worst case they'd ever seen of a rare Scandinavian disease called celiac. At first, this diagnosis - and its requirement of total adherence to a gluten-free diet - seemed like the simple answer to a lifetime of strange symptoms including anemia, insomnia, pneumonia, mouth ulcers, missed periods, and neck pain so severe that for months preceding the diagnosis she hadn't been able to turn her head. But even on the diet - and as glutenphobia erupted in this country, with nearly a third of Americans avoiding gluten - Abel still didn't feel well. When doctors, nutritionists, and websites all offered contradicting information on gluten and diet, she began to panic. How would she know what to eat? In this powerful, wide-ranging, and emotional story about the limits of medical knowledge, Abel discovers why she wasn't diagnosed with celiac as a child. She considers how environmental fears and Internet anecdotes lead people to avoid gluten. And she grapples with the question that confronts us all: how to live calmly, even joyfully, in the face of uncertainty. Heather Abel worked as a reporter and news editor in Colorado and San Francisco and taught creative writing at the New School University and UMass Amherst. She lives with her family in western Massachusetts where she is finishing her first novel. Cover design by Hannah Perrine Mode. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Caroline Shaffer.

Across the Great Divide (eBook, ePUB)
19,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

The division between analytic and continental political theory remains as sharp as it is wide, rendering basic problems seemingly intractable. Across the Great Divide offers an accessible and compelling account of how this split has shaped the field of political philosophy and suggests means of addressing it. Rather than advocating a synthesis of these philosophical modes, author Jeremy Arnold argues for aporetic cross-tradition theorizing: bringing together both traditions in order to show how each is at once necessary and limited. Across the Great Divide engages with a range of fundamental political concepts and theorists-from state legitimacy and violence in the work of Stanley Cavell, to personal freedom and its civic institutionalization in Philip Pettit and Hannah Arendt, and justice in John Rawls and Jacques Derrida-not only illustrating the shortcomings of theoretical synthesis but also demonstrating a productive alternative. By outlining the failings of "political realism" as a synthetic cross-tradition approach to political theory and by modeling an aporetic mode of engagement, Arnold shows how we can better understand and address the pressing political issues of civil freedom and state justice today.

Robert Lowell
78,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

With some features of an intellectual biography, this book offers a radical re-examination of Robert Lowell's entire oeuvre. The author finds in it a sustained, if erratic, effort to move beyond the high-modernist paradigm. The book begins by exploring the aesthetic and ethical dilemmas the poet was confronted with at the start of his career, dilemmas which were only temporarily resolved in the deceptive mode of confessionalism. Incorporating some material from the poet's unpublished manuscripts, the author argues that the late Lowell seeks a poetic mode that would be both more public and more empathic. Inspired by - among others - Hannah Arendt, the poet eventually refutes not just the high-modernist mode of the 1940s but also the crypto-modernist confessionalism of the 1960s. The book follows Lowell in his various post-modernist explorations to show finally that Martin Heidegger can be usefully employed to read the last volumes. Traces of Heideggerian critique of metaphysics and his literary hermeneutics found in The Dolphin and Day by Day illustrate the poet's unfulfilled ambition to develop an entirely new poetics.

"There has been no more original, no more serious critic and reader in our time." - George Steiner Walter Benjamin was an icon of criticism, renowned for his insight on art, literature, and philosophy. This volume includes his views on Kafka, with whom he felt a close personal affinity, his studies on Baudelaire and Proust, and his essays on Leskov and on Brecht's epic theater. Illuminations also includes his penetrating study "The Work of Art in the Age of Mechanical Reproduction," an enlightening discussion of translation as a literary mode, and his theses on the philosophy of history. Hannah Arendt selected the essays for this volume and introduces them with a classic essay about Benjamin's life in a dark historical era.

Liebesbriefe an einen Philosophen
19,80 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Heloise und Abelard, Rosa Luxemburg oder Hannah Arendt, sie alle haben berühmt gewordene Liebesbriefe hinterlassen. Es sind sehr persönliche Briefe, in denen sie ihre geheimsten Gedanken und Gefühle zeigen.Briefe und vor allem Liebesbriefe sind ein Zeichen von Offenheit und Zuneigung. Während das Briefeschreiben heute aus der Mode gekommen ist, war das im 17. Jahrhundert anders, man könnte es das Zeitalter des Briefes nennen.Aus dieser Zeit stammt der Briefwechsel zwischen Damaris Cudworth Masham und dem Aufklärer John Locke. Masham bewundert den fast 30 Jahre älteren und bekannten englischen Philosophen, möchte ihre Gedanken mit ihm teilen. Oft ist es ein einseitiger Austausch, in dem sie viel von dem offenbart, was sie bewegt. Beide verbindet eine geistige Liebe, eine tiefe Übereinstimmung in Lebens- und Wissensfragen und gegenseitiger Respekt. Und so liefert der Briefwechsel zwischen Damaris Cudworth Masham und John Locke ein Lebensbild der beiden Hauptfiguren.In "Liebesbriefe an einen Philosophen" zeichnet Ursula I. Meyer auch ein Bild der Zeit nach dem englischen Bürgerkrieg. Während sich die früheren Machtstrukturen wieder stabilisieren und der Alltag sich normalisiert, festigt sich das Korsett der Frauenrolle. Nur wenige schaffen sich Freiräume im engmaschigen Leben bürgerlicher und adeliger Frauen. Für Damaris Cudworth Masham ist das der Briefwechsel mit einem der einflussreichsten Philosophen ihrer Zeit.

Perspectives on Architectural Design Research
38,80 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Perspectives on Architectural Design Research is a collection of short essays, projects and edited transcripts that offers current perspectives on design research in architecture and aligned disciplines. Contributors include international figures Donald L. Bates, Richard Blythe, Nat Chard, Murray Fraser, Dorita Hannah, Jonathan Hill and Vivian Mitsogianni. What emerges from the multiple perspectives is that contemporary design research - transdisciplinary, multi-scalar and concerning place, people, space and time - provides a collective and subtle mechanism that is propositional and transformative. The shared optimism of the contributors is that this propositional mode of research can be of catalytic value for contemporary culture and society.
