Historia : profiles of the historical impulse by Frederic Will( )

8 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 575 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

'Historia' is a series of interlocked observations on the nature of temporality, the human practice of writing its history, and the histories all things accumulate around themselves, as does the author even while discoursing on historia. A number of examples of history writing are provided which support the arguments of the text: five books of history 'about America and the Americas, ' and some examples from archeological reconstruction, from historical drumming in West Africa, and from the history of a painting by Albrecht Duerer. The book does not reach a conclusion - does not define historia - but views the term from many angles, and will refresh the reader's sense of what the historical is. And what is it? It is the dimension in which the present takes on cargo and weight. While it is true that the past is instantly devoured by the present, it is also true that the past pervades the present - while being devoured by it. Of course when I switch on the light Edison switches it for me. And it is not just TE. It is industry, commerce, and the electrician around the corner. I can do nothing effectual without the past, but the past has no meaning except through me. 'Historia' rings many changes on this obvious, but endlessly instructive, idea.--
Essays on the condition of inwarnesss : pieces of otherness by Frederic Will( )

7 editions published between 2016 and 2018 in English and held by 558 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Inwardness is the condition of being inside. However, this can mean many things: one can be inside himself - dealing with his emotions, his projections, his fantasies - or with other people who become part of him as he deals with himself. One can be inside his social environment, letting himself be part of the tissue of values, reciprocations, and personal interventions that compose one's social existence. These are two quite different kinds of being inside, both of them different from being in a box or being in a prison cell, and yet each of them, in a recognizable sense, inside something. This book is concerned with inwardness in two different senses, the first as being in the center of existence, and the second as being a quest for the meaning of the center of one's existence, that is two different kinds of profoundly 'within' states. The book culminates with tales of searching for the meaning of interiority, as it self-characterizes in the inner brain of a lizard, or in the mineral constitution of the earth from which we take our lives."--Publisher's website

Seventy moral (and immoral) polarities of the everyday by Frederic Will( )

8 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in English and held by 196 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Like its companion Seventy Moral (and Immoral) Polarities of the Everyday (2016), this volume is a set of seventy mini-meditations on opposite states of the moral or emotional life - goodness and badness, ugly and beautiful, quiet and raucous. Each item, in each polarity, is allowed to gather up a picture, a tale, or a logical adventure, and then to leave behind it multi-part reflections which play out in the reader's mind. The operational energy here is partly prayer or mantra and partly half-completed logical conundrum. Is there a new form of private devotional at work here?
