National Book Critics Circle Award Winner A National Book Award Finalist A vital, searching new collection from one of finest American poets at work today In "Those Nights," Frank Bidart writes: "We who could get / somewhere through / words through / sex could not." Words and sex, art and flesh: In Metaphysical Dog, Bidart explores their nexus. The result stands among this deeply adventurous poet's most powerful and achieved work, an emotionally naked, fearlessly candid journey through many of the central axes, the central conflicts, of his life, and ours. Near the end of the book, Bidart writes: In adolescence, you thought your work ancient work: to decipher at last human beings' relation to God. Decipher love. To make what was once whole whole again: or to see why it never should have been thought whole. This "ancient work" reflects what the poet sees as fundamental in human feeling, what psychologists and mystics have called the "hunger for the Absolute"—a hunger as fundamental as any physical hunger. This hunger must confront the elusiveness of the Absolute, our self-deluding, failed glimpses of it. The third section of the book is titled "History is a series of failed revelations." The result is one of the most fascinating and ambitious books of poetry in many years.

The collected works of one of contemporary poetry’s most original voices Gathered together, the poems of Frank Bidart perform one of the most remarkable transmutations of the body into language in contemporary literature. His pages represent the human voice in all its extreme registers, whether it’s that of the child-murderer Herbert White, the obsessive anorexic Ellen West, the tormented genius Vaslav Nijinsky, or the poet’s own. And in that embodiment is a transgressive empathy, one that recognizes our wild appetites, the monsters, the misfits, the misunderstood among us and inside us. Few writers have so willingly ventured to the dark places of the human psyche and allowed themselves to be stripped bare on the page with such candor and vulnerability. Over the past half century, Bidart has done nothing less than invent a poetics commensurate with the chaos and appetites of our experience. Half-light encompasses all of Bidart’s previous books, and also includes a new collection, Thirst, in which the poet austerely surveys his life, laying it plain for us before venturing into something new and unknown. Here Bidart finds himself a “Creature coterminous with thirst,” still longing, still searching in himself, one of the “queers of the universe.” Visionary and revelatory, intimate and unguarded, Bidart’s Half-light: Collected Poems 1965-2017 are a radical confrontation with human nature, a conflict eternally renewed and reframed, restless line by restless line.

These essays from one of our most stimulating thinkers showcase Tallis's infectious fascination, indeed intoxication, with the infinite complexity of human lives and the human condition. In the title essay, we join Tallis on a stroll around his local park - and the intricate passages of his own consciousness - as he uses the motif of the walk, the amble, to occasion a series of meditations on the freedoms that only human beings possess. In subsequent essays, the flaneur thinks about his brain, his relationship to the rest of the animal kingdom, his profession of medicine and about the physical world and the claims of physical science to have rendered philosophical reflection obsolete. Taken together the essays continue Tallis's mission to elaborate a vision of humanity that rejects religious myths while not succumbing to scientism or any other form of naturalism. Written with the author's customary intellectual energy and vigour these essays provoke, move and challenge us to think differently about who we are and our place in the material world.

1. HISTORICAL BACKGROUND The purpose of the book is to develop internal realism, the metaphysical-episte mological doctrine initiated by Hilary Putnam (Reason, Truth and History, "Introduction", Many Faces). In doing so I shall rely - sometimes quite heavily - on the notion of conceptual scheme. I shall use the notion in a somewhat idiosyncratic way, which, however, has some affinities with the ways the notion has been used during its history. So I shall start by sketching the history of the notion. This will provide some background, and it will also give opportunity to raise some of the most important problems I will have to solve in the later chapters. The story starts with Kant. Kant thought that the world as we know it, the world of tables, chairs and hippopotami, is constituted in part by the human mind. His cen tral argument relied on an analysis of space and time, and presupposed his famous doctrine that knowledge cannot extend beyond all possible experience. It is a central property of experience - he claimed - that it is structured spatially and temporally. However, for various reasons, space and time cannot be features of the world, as it is independently of our experience. So he concluded that they must be the forms of human sensibility, i. e. necessary ingredients of the way things appear to our senses.

Alle Leser sind im Grunde auf der Suche nach der einen Erkenntnis, die nicht nur ihre intellektuelle Neugier befriedigt, sondern ihnen Anleitung gibt, ihr Leben glücklicher und erfüllter zu gestalten. Diese eine Erkenntnis – „The Secret“, wie Autorin Rhonda Byrne es nennt – war wenigen Auserwählten der Menschheitsgeschichte gegenwärtig. Die Smaragdtafel des Hermes Trismegistos, die Keimzelle aller heute bestehenden esoterischen Systeme, hat es ausgedrückt mit den Worten: „Wie innen, so außen“. Große Geister wie Platon, Leonardo da Vinci und Einstein haben um das Geheimnis gewusst; moderne Autoren wie Neale Donald Walsch und Bärbel Mohr haben in jüngster Zeit eine Millionen-Leserschaft damit inspiriert. „The Secret“, das als Dokumentarfilm schon weltweit erfolgreich lief, beweist in einer überzeugenden Mischung aus Erklärungen der Autorin und Zitaten bekannter Weisheitslehrer die Wahrheit einiger grundlegender Erkenntnisse: Wir sind selbst Schöpfer unserer Realität. Die Dinge, die uns im Alltag begegnen, haben wir durch die eigene Gedankenenergie angezogen. Die Kraft, die wir „Gott“ nennen, war und ist nie wirklich von uns getrennt. Einige Bestsellerautoren schicken ihre Helden auf die spannende Suche nach einem fiktiven Geheimnis. Mit „The Secret“ werden Sie selbst zum Sucher und können einen Schatz finden – nicht fiktiv, sondern wirklich.

This series is dedicated to the timely publication of new work in this highly fertile field of philosophy. The subject is broadly construed, taken to include not only perennially central topics (modality, ontology, and mereology; metaphysical theories of causation, laws of nature, persistence through time, and time itself; and realism and anti-realism in the many senses of these terms); but also the rich clusters of metaphysical questions that open up within other subfields, such as philosophy of mind and philosophy of science (questions about supervenience and materialism, the nature of qualia, mental causation, metaphysical implications of relativity and quantum physics, mereological theories of biological species, and so on). Besides independent essays, volumes are likely to contain a critical essay on a recent book, or a symposium that allows participants to respond to one another's criticisms and questions

This book is somewhat anecdotal in content, offering profound insight, which may prove helpful as “food for thought”. This six-year study supports a belief that mental and spiritual interactions exist between humans, animals, and angel/spirit orbs. The evidence contained within this book is of immense value. This book presents the first known Photograph of the LIVING SOUL OF A DECEASED CANINE PET named “Asia”. A spiritual connection of orb presence with a purpose has been validated through our dog, “Buddy”, who sees and chases spirit orbs that have been revealed to the physical world via the digital camera.

Investigates the relationship between philosophy, art and their presentation of both Jews and animalsBy developing his own conception of the 'figure' Andrew Benjamin has written an innovative and provocative study of the complex relationship between philosophy, the history of painting and their presentation of both Jews and animals.As Benjamin makes clear the 'Other' is never abstract. He underscores the means by which the ethical imperative, arising from the way the history of philosophy and the history of art are constructed, shows us how to respond to an already identified, even if unacknowledged, determinant other.

Bombay 1975. Vier Menschen treffen aufeinander. Ihre Schicksale verknüpft Rohinton Mistry meisterlich zu einem großen Roman. Wir bedgenen Dina Dalal, einer Frau Anfang Vierzig und Maneck Kohlah, einem Studenten aus dem Gebiet des Himalaja; dem unglaublich optimistischen Ishvar Darji und seinem widerspenstigen Neffen, zwei Schneidern, die vom Land in die Stadt geflohen sind. Seine großen erzählerischen Bögen spannt Misty von den grünen Tälern des Himalaja bis in die Straßen von Bombay. Er erzählt von Rajaram, dem Haarsammler; dem geschäftstüchtigen Bettlermeister, Herr über eine Bettlerarmee; oder Mr Valmik, einem Korrekturleser, der eine Allergie gegen Druckerschwärze entwickelt. ›Das Gleichgewicht der Welt‹ läßt den indischen Subkontinent vor den Augen der Leser entstehen - ein Kosmos, der nur auf den ersten Blick fremd erscheint.
