Practical Zen : meditation and beyond by Julian Daizan Skinner( )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 65 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Zen master Julian Daizan Skinner guides the reader through a sequence of meditation techniques that can safely lead even a complete novice through to advanced levels. Based on his own long experience of the Rinzai Zen tradition, as taught by the great seventeenth-century masters, Hakuin and Bankei, Daizan highlights the key points for success and addresses the pitfalls. Structured around a traditional teaching framework called "The two wings of a bird," Daizan clearly lays-out how these methods build and combine to create a transformative and sustaining practice. The book contains an extremely useful section describing the experiences of western practitioners who have successfully applied this framework within the pressures of modern life. The final section features key source texts in translation, making the book a complete introduction and guide to Zen meditation. The work of a master, the book speaks at a deep level, with utmost simplicity

A commentary on Isocrates' Busiris by Niall Livingstone( )

1 edition published in 2001 in English and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume contains the first scholarly commentary on the puzzling work Busiris - part mythological jeu d'esprit, part rhetorical treatise and part self-promoting polemic - by the Greek educator and rhetorician Isocrates (436-338 BC). The commentary reveals Isocrates' strategies in advertising his own political rhetoric as a middle way between amoral 'sophistic' education and the abstruse studies of Plato's Academy. Introductory chapters situate Busiris within the lively intellectual marketplace of fourth-century Athens, showing how the work parodies Plato's Republic, and how its revisionist treatment of the monster-king Busiris reflects Athenian fascination with the 'alien wisdom' of Egypt. As a whole, the book casts new light both on Isocrates himself, revealed as an agile and witty polemicist, and on the struggle between rhetoric and philosophy from which Hellenism and modern humanities were born."--Jacket
Scorn : the wittiest and wickedest insults in human history by Matthew Parris( )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 22 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

'He's 100% political herpes. Back in six months whatever you do. Or three days, like last time.' Camilla Long on Nigel Farage 'You're as ugly as a salad.' Bulgarian insult 'I'm going to beat him so bad he'll need a shoehorn to put his hat on.' Muhammed Ali There's no pleasure like a perfectly-turned put-down (when it's directed at somebody else, of course) but Matthew Parris's Scorn is sharply different from the standard collections. Here are the funniest, sharpest, rudest and most devastating insults in history, from ancient Roman graffiti to the battlefields of Twitter. Drawing on bile from such masters as Dorothy Parker, Elizabeth I, Donald Trump, Groucho Marx, Princess Anne, Winston Churchill, Nigel Farage, Mae West and Alastair Campbell - which form an exchange between voices down the ages - Scorn shows that abuse can be an art form. This collection includes extended literary invective as well as short verbal shin-kicks. Encompassing literature, art, politics, showbiz, marriage, gender, nationality and religion, Matthew Parris's sublime collection is the perfect companion for the festive season, whether you're searching for the perfect elegant riposte, the rudest polite letter ever written, or a brutal verbal sledgehammer

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Alex Tinson is a St Ives-born vet who was literally plucked from the Australian outback to become chief vet in charge of the United Arab Emirates President's racing camels.

Along the way he also cared for a menagerie of most unusual animals from pet cheetahs and monkeys to strange desert lizards. It has also given him a rare entree into the life of the uber-rich Gulf Royal families and the world of the Bedouins ... This is the story of an extraordinarily successful and adventurous expatriate Australian. Compelling and intriguing, it takes you into a world that few have entered before
Napoleon's purgatory : the unseen humanity of the "Corsican Ogre" in fatal exile by Thomas M Barden( )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Napoleon's Purgatory is a work portraying the human side of Napoleon as revealed by those who shared his exile on the island of St. Helena. Through the diaries and journals of the Emperor's servants, generals, and companions come the stories of Napoleon's tender love for children, his captivating sense of humor, his eternal love for Josephine, and his agonizing death. Napoleon Bonaparte was sent by the British to the remote island of St. Helena where he could not escape. What followed were six excruciating years of loneliness and depression, mixed with frolicking play with the island's children, a battle of wills with his British captor, an exploration of his lapsed Catholic faith, and the complex relationship with the members of his entourage. This time in exile was akin to time served in Purgatory for Napoleon. His humanity, suffering, joy in the laughter of children, and longing for Josephine are captured vividly in this work through the detailed use of primary sources written by those who were there. While many considered Napoleon Bonaparte the "Corsican Ogre" for the wars he waged across Europe, he was anything but during his exile on St. Helena
Unzeitgemäße Techniken historische Narrative künstlerischer Verfahren by Stefanie Stallschus( )

1 edition published in 2019 in German and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Künstlerische Verfahren entstehen und verschwinden. Dieser historische Wandel gilt als wesentlicher Motor für eine Entwicklung der Künste. Nicht selten jedoch wird ein altes Wissen um frühere Herstellungsprozesse wiederentdeckt, bewusst reaktiviert und dadurch erneuert. Mit dem Interesse an unzeitgemäßen Techniken bilden sich historische Narrative heraus, die die Wahrnehmung und Deutung von Kunst beeinflussen. Ausgehend vom frühen Mittelalter bis in die Gegenwartskunst widmen sich dieser Band den technischen Anachronismen, durch die Traditionen gebildet, aber auch durchkreuzt werden
Im Glanze des Himmels : Putten-Motive im Werk Albrecht Dürers by Rainer Hoffmann( )

1 edition published in 2019 in German and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Putten sind aus der Kunst seit der frühen Renaissance nicht wegzudenken. Die kindlichen, fülligen, meist unbekleideten Knaben, bevölkern die Werke der bildenden Kunst in den verschiedensten Varianten, häufig als schmückendes Beiwerk. Auch im Werk Albrecht Dürers (1471-1528) gibt es bedeutend mehr Putten zu sehen, als man gemeinhin denkt. Diese bemerkenswerte Fülle an Puttenpräsenzen in unterschiedlichsten Kontexten und Erscheinungsformen auf Gemälden, Stichen, Holzschnitten oder Zeichnungen Dürers wird in der vorliegenden Studie erstmals umfassend untersucht und dargestellt. Nach einer Einführung in die Geschichte der Putten von den Eroten-Anfängen in der Antike bis zur Frührenaissance im 15. Jahrhundert werden Dürers Putten oder Putten-Engel unter drei Gesichtspunkten thematisiert: unter christlichen, profanen und mythologischen Aspekten. Dabei werden auch Putten-Motive in Werken von Dürers deutschen und italienischen Renaissance-Zeitgenossen mit in den Blick genommen. Die vielen Facetten des Themas in seinen wunderbaren verschiedenen Ausprägungen werden in diesem reich illustrierten Buch wahrhaft anschaulich

Ruralism : the future of villages and small towns in an urbanizing world by Vanessa Miriam Carlow( )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In an urbanizing world, the city is considered the ultimate model and the measure of all things. The attention of architects and planners has been almost entirely focused on the city for many years, while rural spaces are all too often associated with visions of economic decline, stagnation and resignation. However, rural spaces are transforming almost as radically as cities. Furthermore, rural spaces play a decisive role in the sustainable development of our living environment?inextricably interlinked with the city as a resource or reservoir. The formerly segregated countryside is now traversed by global and regional flows of people, goods, waste, energy, and information, linking it to urban systems and enabling them to function in the first place. 0'Ruralism' is dedicated to the significance of rural spaces as a starting point for transformation: what notions of rural life currently exist? What is the connection between urban and rural concepts? Can these connections provide new impulses for shaping (urban) space? International experts illuminate rural spaces from an architectural, cultural, gender-oriented, ecological, and political perspective and ask how a (new) vision of the rural can be formulated
