Les confessions by Jean-Jacques Rousseau( Book )
4 editions published between 2000 and 2008 in English and held by 369 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In his Confessions, Jean-Jacques Rousseau (1712-78) tells the story of his life, from the formative experiences of his humble childhood in Geneva, through the achievement of international fame as novelist and philosopher in Paris, to his wanderings as an exile, persecuted by governments and alienated from the modern world. In trying to explain who he was and how he came to be the object of others' admiration and abuse, Rousseau analyses with unique insight the relationship between an elusive but essential inner self and the variety of social identities he was led to adopt. Confessions is Rousseau's search, through every resource of language, to convey what he despairs of putting into words: the personal quality of one's own existence." "This translation includes the preface to the Neuchatel manuscript, which provides insights into Rousseau's conception of autobiography."--Jacket

7 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 229 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
On the one hand, anger and gratitude are crucial in appreciating what one owes to oneself or others; on the other, they disturb one's internal balance and reinforce one's dependence upon others.

The magic skin by Honoré de Balzac( Book )

Patrick Coleman's wide-ranging introduction considers the multiple perspectives of the novel, its conceptualization of historical change, and its satirical commentary on contemporary society.

Interactive control of nonlinear projection for complex animated scenes by Patrick Coleman( Book )
2 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Linear perspective has long been at the foundation of most graphics systems. While it has proven to be effective for many applications, it offers limited creative control over the projection of a scene. Nonlinear projections allow for greater flexibility, but existing approaches do not adapt well to the interactive manipulation necessary for creative exploration. This thesis presents techniques for creating interactive nonlinear projections of complex scene geometry. A general nonlinear projection pipeline is presented that incorporates detailed control of projection, composition, illumination, and shadows. A high-level approach to creating nonlinear projections is then developed that builds upon this pipeline. This approach allows for direct specification of a nonlinear projection relative to an initial linear perspective view via the manipulation of feature proxies in the image plane. Additionally, procedural models of nonlinear projection are explored, including a hierarchal model and models that can respond to information such as object annotations, camera motion, and scene motion
