Known in Europe through his numerous publications on the subject of bonsai culture and the illustrated book Die Welt des Bonsai. About the book: The aim of bonsai art is to discover the essence and individuality of a tree and to bring it to life. Bonsai are living works of art, never finished, remain a living nature, live and continue to grow. It was the Chinese who were the first to plant trees in bowls in ancient times, and Chinese gardeners have not only created trees but also landscapes with rocks since the Han Dynasty (around 206 BC to 220 AD). Mountains, trees and rivers, tiny and lifelike, recreated on a tray. In the 10th and 11th centuries, Buddhist monks brought bonsai to Japan. For them the trees were religious objects, green stairs that lead to heaven, symbols for the unity of man and nature. The art of creating miniature trees has been perfected by Japanese masters over the centuries. They also understood the care of their bonsai as a meditation exercise, a religious duty. The model of every bonsai is the tree in nature and its image in humans. A bonsai says a lot about the temperament and character of its master - it is the reflection of his soul. This book shows the atmosphere of this fascinating world of bonsai and the importance of the bonsai idea for people today in this part of Asia in impressive pictures.

Prometheus der Dulder / Imago - Nobel Prize for Literature 1919

Carl Spitteler
Published by Coron VerlagYear: 2000
Edition: hardcover / bound
ISBN: 9783518391471
Condition: used Carl Spitteler: Prometheus the sufferer What do we actually know about Carl Spitteler? Does this great Swiss poet share the fate of many proponents of poetry that they are only read by a small elite? Even during the First World War, Romain Rolland was astonished to discover that most Germans did not know Spitteler at all. At the same time, as he noted in his diaries, The Conscience of Europe, Rolland was extremely astonished at the greatness of his mind and his art. In the world of the living this is the most primal and most powerful source that I have come across in literature. This judgment stands in clear contrast to the degree of fame of the poet. If his name is mentioned, it is usually not in connection with his works, from knowledge of his poetry, but more because of his public attitude during the First World War. Only once in his life did Spitteler give a political speech - but its consequences were more powerful than the impact of all of his books. It was on December 14, 1914, in Zurich, when he gave his speech, Our Swiss Viewpoint. It was about the attitude of the Swiss towards war and towards the belligerent powers. He demanded restraint in the sense of neutrality, warned against an internal ordeal by taking sides for or against France or Germany, but also found clear words against the German warfare against Belgium. In general terms, he stated: the names republic, democracy, freedom, tolerance and so on, do these mean something irrelevant to a Swiss citizen? There was a time - I have seen it - when these names counted for everything in Europe. Today they are treated almost as zero. Everything was too much. Zero is not enough. Spitteler had foreseen the sharp, often malicious reactions - especially from Germany. Even his first supporter and public admirer, the musician Felix Weingartner (1863-1942), who had already published a small work on Spitteler in 1904, now turned against Spitteler in an open letter. In it he expressed that he continued to admire the work, but that the author of his work was unworthy not he had written it, but a god who had entered him, a German god of course. Spitteler reacted with humor: It was astonishing that this German god did not go to a Hindenburg, but to a Swiss man who speaks French, Russian and English and who values ​​these languages. Even the gentlemen of the Nobel Prize Committee paid tribute to public opinion in Germany. When Spitteler was proposed for the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1915, the rejection said that his political behavior in Germany and Austria had caused the greatest offense. There can be no doubt that his choice, while the war continues, would cause a most embarrassing sensation in these countries and cause all kinds of misunderstandings. After the end of the war, it was considered appropriate - precisely because of the Swiss man's neutrality - to award him the prize. In 1920 he received the Nobel Prize for Literature for 1919. Now one could even fall back on a statement from 1914 in which it was said about Spitteler: The poet rises, both in form and content, above the contradictions of the time , he is, so to speak, neutral towards all of their bitter and senseless struggles. Spitteler's path to this recognition was a long one. Born on April 24, 1845 in Liestal (Switzerland) as the son of a civil servant and later entrepreneur, it was his father's wish to turn Carl into a well-trained lawyer. The foundations for this were laid with school attendance in Bern and Basel. Above all through his teacher Jacob Burckhardt at the Baseler Pädagogium Spitteler was decisively shaped in terms of ideology. During this time, he developed a lifelong friendship with Joseph Viktor Widmann (1842-1911), who later worked as a journalist and writer himself. The correspondence between the two friends is one of the most important sources for understanding Spitteler's intellectual and artistic development. The law course, which he began in Basel in 1863, did not satisfy him. There was a deep crisis. In December 1864, he flew to Lucerne, where he stayed for a long time, separated from his family. In 1865 he began studying theology in Zurich, which he continued in Heidelberg in 1867. He was probably primarily concerned with collecting arguments against Christianity and against religion in general. The influence of Burckhardt and Arthur Schopenhauer had made him a pessimist and anti-theologian. So it was not surprising that his first attempt to graduate successfully in 1869 failed. He only succeeded in doing this after studying again in Basel in 1871. However, instead of taking over a parish assigned to him as a pastor, he left Switzerland to go to Russia as a tutor. He did not return home until 1879. After years of cosmopolitan life in aristocratic families in Russia, he was disappointed with the climate in Switzerland. What a contrast! and what a mockery in contrast! Out in a foreign country: open arms, warm welcome, benevolent tolerance of his peculiarities, indulgence for his mistakes here at home: narrow-minded nagging, infallibility conceit, negation of his entire personality, this was the saying in the strongly autobiographical novel Imago about this impression. He worked as a teacher in Bern and Neuveville on Lake Biel. In 1883 he married Marie Op den Hooff, worked as a journalist for the Swiss Border Post and the Neue Zürcher Zeitung, before moving to Lucerne in 1892 in the house of his father-in-law. Now free of material worries, he could devote himself entirely to his writing. In the following years he received many honors. In 1904 he received the award of the Bauernfeld Foundation together with the later Nobel Prize winners Thomas Mann and Hermann Hesse. 1909 the city of Lucerne made him an honorary citizen. In 1920 he received the Nobel Prize for 1919 and the Schiller Prize in 1921, he was appointed commander of the French Legion of Honor. The poet died in Lucerne on December 29, 1924. Carl Spitteler had been looking for his actual calling for a long time. In his autobiographical memoirs, he cited October 1862 as the turning point in his life: And suddenly like lightning, bright as noon, a thought struck me: That's it, not the music, not the painting, but the poetry. In it you can express your defiance, your anger, everything that depresses you and what you have to say. And it does not require any technical studies, no school, no lessons, no help, no teacher. You only have to deal with your soul and your conscience of art. And one more thing, hey luck! you can create in silence and secret, without anyone suspecting it. But it would be many years before he could redeem this calling. It was not until 1881 - and under the pseudonym Carl Felix Tandem - that his first work, Prometheus and Epimetheus, appeared. It went largely unnoticed, even if Gottfried Keller, for example, was very impressed. Spitteler became better known for his journalistic work, which first appeared in various newspapers and magazines and then in anthologies such as Literary Parables (1892) and Laughing Truths (1898), as well as for stories such as Conrad, the Lieutenant (1898). His attempts to gain a foothold on the stage failed totally. The only performance of one of his pieces was with the parliamentarian on November 1, 1889 in Basel - and it was a failure. Spitteler saw his real artistic concern in the great epic. He understood both his stories and his poems (the butterflies and bell songs collections) as exercises so that I can put together future, heavier and larger works in a sounding form. The breakthrough in Spitteler's work came with the verse epic Olympic Spring, the four parts of which (The Hera Driveway, The Bride, The High Time End and Turning) were written between 1900 and 1905. It is about the ascent of the young gods from Hades to Olympus, about the dispute between Zeus and Apollo about Hera, about many individual stories about different gods such as Apollo, Hermes, Dionysus, Poseidon and others. Finally, the turning of the gods to the human world is represented in the figure of Heracles. Regardless of the relationship to Greek mythology, the reader quickly realizes that Spitteler represents a world of its own and that it is not Greece but his Swiss homeland that forms the framework. In the award speech for the Nobel Prize that Harald Hjärne gave in Stockholm on June 1, 1920, it was said: Behind Spitteler's mythology lies a very personal inner struggle, and it is an expression of an attitude towards life that he acquired in the course of his own development . He resorted to this traditional poetic form in order to reflect human effort, hope and despair in the realm of the imagination and to depict fates in their bitter struggle for freedom against the ruling power. His only novel Imago (1906) occupies a special position among the poet's works.It is Spitteler's love story to his cousin Ellen Vetter-Brodbeck, and at the same time it is a nuanced representation of the relationship between art and life. Imago was not just a work of art for the poet, it was his lifeblood: for my life story, that is, for my biographers, it will be the most important document of all. I appear veiled and masked in all my works, here I show my soul the smallest fiber. It is no coincidence that Sigmund Freud named his journal for the application of psychoanalysis in the humanities after the novel Imago in 1912 at the suggestion of Carl Gustav Jung. Spitteler's work is sometimes seen in connection with Friedrich Nietzsche. There was a loose correspondence between the two of them from the last days of the philosopher before his mental breakdown. Spitteler took an essentially distant stance from Nietzsche's oeuvre. Only when Nietzsche's sister, Elisabeth Förster-Nietzsche, developed the legend that Spitteler was decisively influenced by Nietzsche, did the poet turn to the public and explain his relationship to Nietzsche (1908). His ideological basic positions remained with Burckhardt throughout his life and Schopenhauer determined what not only his great works, but also his philosophical attempts on human dignity (1862) and unphilosophical thoughts (1910/11) testify. Spitteler probably found the greatest appreciation in an appreciation that Romain Rolland had sent to Verner von Heidenstam (1859-1940) in Sweden to support the candidacy for the Nobel Prize. It said: The great poems of Spitteler were a discovery for me during the war, and I can say that they illuminated my dark years. I had the feeling that I was meeting one of those powerful artistic personalities who are regretted to be found only rarely here and there in the past. Painter, poet and thinker in one, Spitteler is one of the last great creators of myths, epic legends and philosophical parables. Without a doubt he is the greatest poet Switzerland has ever had. She embodies herself in him with her absolute independence of thought, her coarse humor and her robust nature ... I would like to add that Spitteler's character seems to me no less extraordinary than his art ... He was free all his life, alone - and happy thanks to the light and warmth of its own inner sun. * * * He was not a fool, but he was a sufferer, it is said in the novel Imago about the hero of the book. This builds a bridge to Spitteler's late work, which appeared in the year of the poet's death in 1924 under the title Prometheus der Tulder. On the one hand it was a reworking of the poetry Prometheus and Epimetheus from the years 1881/82, as Spitteler himself explained in a 1923 lecture in Zurich (Why I reworked my Prometheus) and on the other hand it was an independent creation in which the life experiences and life views of the poet were incorporated. The two-part verse epic was created over a period of fourteen years. The external action corresponded to the earlier work: Prometheus refuses to God to exchange his soul for a conscience and is severely punished and banished for it. The brother Epimetheus, on the other hand, agrees to this exchange and is appointed king. But conscience proves to be an inadequate advisor: Epimetheus neither recognizes the gift that Pandora would like to give people, nor can he protect the Son of God entrusted to him from Behemoth, the representative of evil. Only Prometheus, called for help, saves the Son of God, but renounces earthly honors and - reconciled with his brother - withdraws into solitude. It was a dreary day. Not a breath, not a breath left In the silent mist that hung astonished from the sky are the first lines of verse with which The Hour of Temptation is introduced. In the election of a king there is on the one hand a detailed description of the installation of Epimetheus as king, on the other hand Prometheus' conflict with his soul - his way of choosing a king. In the chapter The Creator, Spitteler sings a song of praise for artistic creation by depicting the joys and sorrows of this work. The first part of the epic ends with the sufferer. The efforts of exile and detention, but also the hero's internal struggles, his doubts as to whether this perseverance and tolerance are justified are presented in detail here. The second part opens with the story of Pandora, who wants to give people a gift, but which is not recognized by Epimetheus, for which God angrily rebukes him. In the Behemoth chapter, the conscience is then emphatically settled. Behemoth has such an easy game with Epimetheus because he is hollow on the inside: Ha! see: with a raised finger the conscience, The sermon over a dictionary assiduously. With the victor, the return of Prometheus and the use of his inner strength to save the Son of God from incurable disease, and the reconciliation with the brother who regains his soul, the seal closes. The fable of Prometheus the sufferer is simpler, tighter and more clearly focused on Prometheus than its predecessor Prometheus and Epimetheus. The focus is on the sharp conflict between the fallible God and the human soul, which takes place against the background of a pessimistically interpreted world. The creative person as a unique, self-responsible, internally guided individual - that is the core message of poetry: You don't need laws, they come from within. The whole wisdom means: to reflect on oneself ... it is said in connection with a complex characteristic of the human creative spirit. And again and again it is about the value of the individual, embodied by Prometheus: Defiantly claim: 'I! ... Courageously confess your worth, cheerfully shout: 'I! ... It is you who creates and drives hidden in him. Open your mouth, immortal! Confess yourself! Call your name! Rejoice proudly and happily: 'Me! Epimetheus, on the other hand, stands for the crowd that is not to be trusted, indeed that is despised: bacon for mice, carrion for foxes, glue for bullfinches, slime for thought that is pious for people! Last but not least, you can feel the wisdom of a fulfilled life everywhere, which has also found its fulfillment in endurance. And the approaching death is thematized more than in other poems: Not life - just an attempt that struggles for life, a pathetic attempt that always fails. With hardship and tribulation a short period of existence, after which death, which is the result of all efforts. ... The life harvest store is the grave! Prometheus' maxim of life, which he defends against all temptations and threats, which he does not sacrifice to any belief in God and which he finds in the appeal to himself, could also apply as the maxim of the poet Carl Spitteler: Because what is there is due to my spiritual judgment And truth, sweet or bad, is important to thought. Imago: Herzeleid But one day he knew whether it was good or bad for him. He had met her there one morning when he was visiting Frau Doctor Richard, in a cheerful mood and in harmless jokes like himself briefly, they got along today. So one remained seated in intimate chatter, lingering longer than intended, as if spellbound by the friendly spirit of the hour. Infatuated by the echo of the agreement, a childish question slipped from him down in the street, as she shook hands with him with a good look as he said goodbye: So you're not coming with me now? Of course not, she replied, amused, hopefully not. Where else? This question! Home to my husband and my boy who are hungry for lunch. And me? so i am excluded? Well, not at all. Just come with my husband will be happy. She wasn't his! And like a cat that was shot, he fled home. She wasn't his! And he who thought his love was desireless! As if it were humanly possible to love someone without at least wanting their permanent presence. She wasn't his! Worse still: it belonged to someone else, a stranger! He had known that for a long time, of course, for the first time today he also felt it, since she left him to move on to someone else. And that's what she called going home! The cat, when it is shot, crawls away, but takes the shot with it, and the wound, which at first was more frightening than painful, begins to work in a quiet corner. What an unheard of privilege! what an outrageous inequality! Day after day, year after year until the end of the day, the other should be allowed to live with her, he never. Not a summer, not a month, not even for once a day. Everything to him, nothing to him. And don't just live with her, but away, thoughts! Because because he already has too much there, she gives him love and friendship on top of her presence. If that person is sad, she comforts him, if he is sick, she annoys him, he dies, her longing follows him across the grave, there is a resurrection, her awakening gaze seeks that one. What, then, has the presumptuous advantage of a singular value that he should receive such a dizzying price? Isn't he human too? or does he have more merits and merits on his own than the rest of humanity combined? And no hope! Nothing to change! neither to clap nor to defy all around nowhere a possibility. On the contrary: every passing hour, day or night, rain or sunshine, whatever its content, every one of them certainly does one thing, one like the other: it digs the gap between him and her deeper, makes it shorter Bond with that closer. The habituation, the understanding, the shared memories, the mutual thanksgiving, it doesn't decrease on the contrary, it increases, it accumulates. The longer, the more the child, who unites both, will demand their care and participation, and consequently make the parents even more intimate. After all, it is not said that it will remain the only one, it can possibly have a little brother or sister, why not? who will defend them? Oh, he had underestimated it, the power of marriage, when he regarded it as a kind of governorship, thinking that it could be shared cheaply: that one, the governor, his body and his soul! As keenly as he saw, there was one thing he had overlooked in his inexperience, the main thing: the mystery of the flesh, the animal power of the natural instinct, which compels the mother to give heaven and earth for a broth for her child, which compels the woman to throwing the heart to the body, belonging with all fibers to the man who shaped her physically, who transformed her from virgin to woman and mother, condemned to love this one, even if she despised him. Doll, Bebé and Papa, these three words exhaust the life of a woman. O you fools who care whether you love those whom you desire as a wife! Hearty! laugh at their disgust, drag them to the altar for marriage is stronger than hatred, more permanent than love. A virgin staggers with the hated one to church as to the slaughterhouse, corpse-pale, death in the heart that belongs to another ask after twenty years: Children, rejoice, papa is coming home tomorrow. If only there was no misfortune for papa! The other, on the other hand, the once dearly loved one, when he dies, he receives a little melancholy when the news of his death comes up, and when it comes up a painfully squashed teardrop, afterwards it's called Papa again. That is the power of marriage. No, no hope. Fight a natural instinct? Folly. Argue against the laws of the world? Madness. The truth said to him, Damned forever, and his grief confessed, So it is. Then he realized that whoever makes a man his god is planting a curse. If they are to be envied, who have a supernatural God, it doesn't matter what kind of anger he would be like Jehovah, a monster like Moloch because no god of any religion is inexorable, no one casts into hell who approaches him lovingly, no one speaks to the desperate : I do not know you. And if even one of the heavenly ones were as numb as stone, there is one thing he is definitely not: he is not petty. You don't come across any Director Wyß between you and him, you don't depend on Kurt's preferences, the Christians' Madonna doesn't give birth to a pack of boys for whose sake she would forget heaven and earth. Worship a human: not much smarter than worship a worm. With a bright mind he saw that only insight does not cure inflammation. See that the poison that turns your blood into pus is just a contemptible grain of dirt, but the fire will continue to eat. But precisely because his love was religion, because in Theuda-Imago's symbolic face all life in the world sounded like home in his mother's face, he felt his suffering most painfully in the noblest parts of his soul. All the hints and meanings, all the lights, faces and poems that come walking across the bridge that connects reality with the spiritual world, reached sore, with a bloody stab his whole attitude to life fell ill with a longing homesickness for her, Homesickness for the common home of all creatures, homesickness for oneself. Because he was she but o hell wonder of impossibility! she wasn't him. And since he was a man of spirit, forced to want to know what kind of snake was biting him when he was bitten, he might talk to his reason about the miracle of lovelessness, knowing full well that knowledge is of no use to him would just because as a thinker he couldn't help but think. Heartache does not stop thinking, on the contrary, it forces the thoughts to gnaw. Are you awake? do you have time? Can you solve the riddle for me as to how it is possible in the soul that a person who is given the highest good, the only consolation on earth, that is, love, does not reward you with love in return? Reason answered: Collect and compare: If you love God, does he love you again? Without doubt. If you love the Pope, does he love you again? Moderate. If you love the Duchess of Aragon and Castile, will she love you again? It will hardly occur to her. If you love a snail, does she love you again? It certainly couldn't. Well there you have it. The deeper down with the soul, the less love. Love causes fullness of soul, lovelessness reveals dullness. Point. And to know all this clearly, to see it all, it's just your own fantasy egg that looks at you from the glass of this little woman, and yet to be damned, this little woman that you overlook, feel and think over, like him To covet the Holy Grail, to thirst for it like someone dying of thirst for the source of salvation! How do you explain that Foolishness, foolishness, my dear! laughed reason. But if you just keep practicing your follies, it promises me that one day you will become something sensible. So he talked to reason about his case. Because of that, he didn't get the slightest degree better on the contrary. It was like a toothache: the more you think about it, the worse it gets, and if you try not to think about it, the pain forces you to think about the pain. But where should he save his thoughts so that they might not find the pain? Whether he flew into religion beyond the starry sky, whether he fled into the radiant ether of creation of poetry, he always encountered his condemnation, he always met this one unfortunate, dear human face, which pursued him everywhere, to him from everywhere with his beautiful annihilate cold look. O you thoughtless ones who smile at the suffering of unrequited love! Suppose a mother saw her deceased child, her only one, climb out of the grave, lovely and beautiful, transfigured by the shine of the sky, she fell towards him, screaming longing, but the child turned away from her, with a strange look, with contemptuous lips: What does she want me there ? Would you smile there? In the same way he felt the most expensive piece of himself torn out of him, strolling around separately and denying him. And it hurt so cruelly, so excruciatingly, that he sometimes said it shouldn't be because he couldn't stand it. But he was not a weakling, rather steadfast and tenacious. So he called his mind to help. There! so it is. I have to endure life I can't. So what? The mind answered him: Come on, I want to show you something. And led him to the slaughterhouse. So now I think you can take it Then, after they got home again, he went on: You see, the whole trick is not to do anything sinister, it would be better to do nothing at all. Grit your teeth or scream for me, if there is no other way just don't scream with your hands. Defeating the hour is everything who defeats the hour, defeats the day who defeats the day, defeats the year just now, not doing anything fatal. But the hour conquers a man and you are a man, provided that he is healthy and you are healthy, with work. So let the pain go, that's their business, they can do it alone, you work, you know what. He knew what.And since the work was done in the service of his strict mistress, who is a powerful goddess there, the tormentors fled from her breath behind the curtain, from where they treacherously shot out now and then to give him a quick stab, but just as quickly hidden again.

There is only one way to survive: to destroy the computer to deal a decisive blow to the investigation. And that seems impossible. Because the data memory cannot simply be blown up because it is 80 meters deep in the earth and is surrounded by a concrete jacket. The data can only be deleted through magnetic manipulation and appropriate code entry. But the terrorists have found a French computer specialist who wants to do the impossible for half a million. But in reality the price is much higher, and it cannot be paid with money ... (From: From a certain point in time you only feel like a surgeon who cuts open an ulcer, they say Job. The sympathetic scene at the time, the oppressive paranoia of the terrorists, which is sedated with brutal excesses of violence, all of this shows Schmidt in his exciting novel as a hopeless development process of confused actionists, without resorting to simple kitchen psychological explanations.

The bargain hunter

ISBN: 9783442545254
Condition: used Portrait: The bargain hunter Rebecca "Becky" Bloomwood Rebecca Bloomwood is a journalist and knows a lot about finances. At least with those of her readers, to whom she gives valuable investment tips. Your own account, on the other hand, is chronically overdrawn. Because the young Becky, as she is called by her friends, has a keen and unmistakable eye for favorable opportunities. For the bargain hunter there is simply nothing better than shopping. Nothing relaxes them, fulfills them and makes them happier. There is hardly a company that cannot be led to success through intensive shopping beforehand. It's just stupid that Becky's bank does not want to see these necessities and is putting increasing pressure on them. When it turns out that the incredibly good-looking agency boss Luke Brandon, on whom Becky has had an eye for a long time, is already taken, it all becomes a bit much for the young woman. With such constant stress, only one thing helps: a little shopping spree.

Alfa Romeo Coupes 1910-2000

Ippolito Alfieri
Published by AutomobiliaYear: 2001
Edition: hardcover / bound
ISBN: 9788879601108
Condition: used Linen in dust jacket Text in English, French and Italian 148 pages, 52 color illustrations and 115 black & white illustrations, size 11 "x 11". A comprehensive study of all of the Alfa coupes constructed between the years 1910 and 2000. Each chapter concludes with detailed specification charts of the various models reviewed and there is an extensive section on the 8-cylinder Montreal and 33 Stradale. Alfa Romeo designers have always been good at creating fine mechanicals and high power, the same Enzo Ferrari admired and used for his Scuderia before the war and imitated in the early postwar years. Roadholding has always been perfect, assisted by the balance of the mass, and sophisticated suspension systems. The bodies have been produced by the most prestigious names, from Touring to Zagato, from Bertone to Pininfarina. Some of these coupes - for example the Touring 1900, Bertone's Giulietta Sprint, Zagato's SZ and Pininfarina's present GTV - should be regarded as masterpieces of car design. The book concludes with the 1990's series of GTV's. Out-of-print and no longer available from the publisher. English, Italian & French text.

Cleansing the Doors of Perception: The Religious Significance of Entheogenic Plants and Chemicals

Huston Smith
Published by Jeremy P Tarcher / PutnamYear: 2001
Edition: Hardcover
ISBN: 9781585420346
Condition: used Buch ist neu Cleansing the Doors of Perception is a fresh consideration of the age-old relationship between certain psychoactive plants and chemicals and mystical experience by one of the most trustworthy religious writers of our time. Author Huston Smith (most famous for his classic The World's Religions) is the Walter Cronkite of religion scholars. He has long believed that "drugs appear to be able to induce religious experiences" and that "it is less evident that they can produce religious lives." At the same time, he posits that "if ... religion cannot be equated with religious experiences, neither can it long survive their absence." Therefore, Smith's basic question about entheogens (a word he defines as "nonaddictive mind-altering substances that are approached seriously and reverently") is "whether chemical substances can be helpful adjuncts to faith." Cleansing the doors does not offer one sustained argument in response to that question. Instead, the book collects Smith's many articles about this subject, and connects them with brief introductory essays. The writings gathered here range from personal testimony about Smith's own experience with entheogens to ethnographic work on the use of entheogens in India. Throughout, Smith's style conveys the wisdom and wonder that has guided his explorations of this strange, fascinating aspect of religious experience. --Michael Joseph Gross From Booklist It takes something of a visionary and a revolutionary to fly in the face of convention. When "family values" becomes the rallying cry of everyone from presidential candidates to TV talk show hosts, and the ongoing war on drugs fosters a climate of fear rather than reassurance, it is a bit of a shock to hear it suggested that nonaddictive drugs might enhance spiritual behavior and, indeed, that substance-altered states may echo religious experiences. Renowned religious historian Smith makes those suggestions in a brave discussion of the connection between religious experience and entheogenic (i.e., psychedelic) substances. Smith was at the forefront of experiments with psychedelic drugs in the sixties, though, and these essays span some 40 years. Liberally updated and edited, they examine Aldous Huxley's early experiences with LSD, Timothy Leary's adventures as counterculture guru, and Carlos Castaneda's use of the peyote sacrament of some American Indian traditions, and even touch on the pioneering work of Sigmund Freud and William James. Calmly, in measured tones, Smith lucidly and learnedly mulls over a most controversial topic. June Sawyers Copyright American Library Association. All rights reserved

Determined to get a magazine up for the comic parlor, he contacted artists and advertisers, called his colleagues every day with new ideas and put all the remaining energy into the new format. Now it is up to us to complete Bert's last project, not least to pay tribute to him. Unfortunately, we couldn't reach everyone with whom Bert had already contacted. Many would have liked to have been there too, but we just don't have access to Bert's email account. Our thanks go all the more to everyone who made this edition possible. For everyone else, all that remains is for us to vaguely refer to a next time. We stuck to the ideas developed with Bert as much as possible, but we also had to change a few things, for practical or time-related reasons. Without Bert, a magazine like this isn't the same.

After the summer, Art should grow up and swap his sneakers for serious leather slippers, but before that he wants to live. He meets the beautiful Phlox, the confusing Lecomte and the money collector Cleveland, loses his ideals and discovers unimagined feelings. And so he slowly comes across them: the secrets of Pittsburgh and those of life. I'm going to turn this city upside down, says Art Bechstein. In autumn I have to become a responsible adult with a decent job. But now it's summer, the magical summer after graduation. Art will be enjoying this summer with new eccentric friends. He celebrates parties, gets to know the glittering side of the gray industrial city of Pittsburgh, from whose chimneys pink clouds seem to be rising. And he himself is turned upside down, because he falls in love with the pretty girl Phlox and meets the attractive Arthur Lecomte, who seduces Art. A hot summer with a jealous love triangle, and through all the dreams and excitements and scenes, the wild drunk Cleveland rides on his motorcycle. He is the only kind who knows Bechstein's carefully guarded secret, knows that his father goes about half-way business, but plans a decent future for his son.The novel, which Michael Chabon wrote at the age of twenty-three, was an international bestseller and is still considered to be today Classic of contemporary American literature.

Successful leadership

Dohmen, Theodor
Published by Ilse-VerlagYear: 1995
Edition: Hardcover
ISBN: 3323000188
Condition: used updated, improved edition The author, Theodor Dohmen, born in 1934, has worked in several large and medium-sized companies during his commercial career. He held a managerial position for six years and was able to gain a lot of experience in staff management. In addition to his professional work, he completed a degree in business administration and economics and, as an autodidact, dealt intensively with psychology for years. Theodor Dohmen has been working as an independent management consultant and seminar leader since 1969. He conducts advanced training courses in sales and leadership. Many thousands of participants have now attended his seminars. The thorough operational experience and the extensive course work guarantee that every reader is offered valuable tips for practical management work. This book is about the leadership of employees by their superiors. It doesn't matter which job it is. The thoughts on leadership developed here can offer suggestions wherever superiors have to lead employees. Whether in industry, in wholesaling or retailing, in the service sector or in public authorities - the principles of employee management are largely the same. It should be borne in mind, however, that the qualifications and overall intellectual level of employees require differences in the details of leadership style. A manager, for example, has to treat the department heads to be led by him in some cases differently than the foreman of an industrial company his workers. The size of the company and the workforce are also not particularly significant. Motivating people will follow much the same pattern in large or small communities. Even the organizational structure of a company does not need to be given too much importance, although a well thought-out company organization fulfills essential requirements for productive employee management. Which details are decisive is described in a separate chapter. The capital of a company consists not only of mechanical and structural systems, of inventories and financial resources, but also of the capabilities of the workforce. It can even be said that modern, high-performance machines and devices are easier to obtain than capable employees. The respective superiors are largely responsible for the performance of the people working in a company. It will depend on their leadership skills, among other things, whether a high level of work productivity is achieved. The performance of a workforce depends on the one hand on the knowledge and skills of the individual employees and on the other hand on the cooperation between these people. Both are fruitfully influenced by good leadership skills on the part of superiors. This book aims to show ways and explain how you can increase employee performance. Leadership, like most of our skills, is made up of disposition and what we have learned. It can therefore be developed on the basis of our systems. Many companies still have untapped reserves here. It is often led to be thoughtless. Errors in staff management can result in costs that sometimes significantly exceed the disadvantages of incorrect production in the manufacture of goods. It is therefore important that, as a manager, you have mastered the art of leading people successfully. As in the technical process in the manufacture or distribution of goods and services, one always finds changes and adjustments to a changed time in the management of employees. The whole living conditions, our form of society, experiences in school, church and state as well as changes in general human coexistence also influence what happens at the workplace and the behavior of the people working there. For some superiors, this means that they can no longer treat their employees the way they were treated years ago at the beginning of their professional career. The task at hand is to give many indications of what successful leadership should look like under today's conditions. The aim of all considerations is to serve the benefit of everyone - the company, superiors and employees. If in the book the terms superior "or boss" or employee "are only used in the male gender, this is done for reasons of linguistic simplicity. These expressions naturally also apply to the female gender. The words superior" and boss "are also used in this Book to be seen as equivalent, meaning the leader, the head of a group to be led.

Condition: used In that area shepherds camped in the open field and kept watch over their flock by night. Then the angel of the Lord came to them, and the splendor of the Lord shone around them. They were very afraid, but the angel said to them, Do not be afraid, for I announce to you a great joy that will be shared with all the people: Today in the city of David the Savior has been born to you he is the Messiah, the Lord. And that should serve as a sign: You will find a child wrapped in diapers and lying in a manger. Gospel of Luke 2: 8-12
