Fellini by John Baxter( Book )

2 editions published in 1996 in Japanese and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"John Baxter, in this first major biography of the director (and the first since his death), limns the life and career of a man who made dreams and lies into great films. He was a man deeply disturbed, who proved that with genius came hardness: Fellini elicited extraordinary work from all around him, but bridled when their fame approached his; constantly won love he was unable to return; wove a filmworld whose fantasy seemed truer than real life. One producer compared him to Attila the Hun; another charged, "He's as phoney as a glass eye." The genius of his films rests on a foundation of deceptions, creations, and, above all, lies - woven by a man who frankly admitted that he invented everything." "By a meticulous study of original sources in Italian, French, and English, and through interviews with friends and collaborators, as well as with the man himself, Baxter has brought into focus the real life of the man universally recognized as one of the greatest filmmakers ever: Fellini."--Jacket

Slow boats to China by Gavin Young( Book )

3 editions published between 1988 and 1990 in Japanese and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Seven months and twenty-three agreeably ill-assorted vessels are what were required to transport Gavin Young, by slow boat, from Piraeus to Canton. His odyssey teemed with excitement, adventure and colour. Gavin Young's account memorably distills the people, places, smells, conversations, ships and history of the places he encountered in what is his most famous book
The robot's rebellion : finding meaning in the age of Darwin by Keith E Stanovich( Book )

2 editions published in 2008 in Japanese and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The idea that we might be robots is no longer the stuff of science fiction decades of research in evolutionary biology and cognitive science have led many esteemed scientists to the conclusion that, according to the precepts of universal Darwinism, humans are merely the hosts for two replicators (genes and memes) that have no interest in us except as conduits for replication. Richard Dawkins, for example, jolted us into realizing that we are just survival mechanisms for our own genes, sophisticated robots in service of huge colonies of replicators to whom concepts of rationality, intelligence, agency, and even the human soul are irrelevant. Accepting and now forcefully responding to this decentering and disturbing idea, Keith Stanovich here provides the tools for the 'robot's rebellion, ' a program of cognitive reform necessary to advance human interests over the limited interest of the replicators and define our own autonomous goals as individual human beings. He shows how concepts of rational thinking from cognitive science interact with the logic of evolution to create opportunities for humans to structure their behavior to serve their own ends. These evaluative activities of the brain, he argues, fulfill the need that we have to ascribe significance to human life. We may well be robots, but we are the only robots who have discovered that fact. Only by recognizing ourselves as such, argues Stanovich, can we begin to construct a concept of self based on what is truly singular about humans: that they gain control of their lives in a way unique among life forms on Earth--through rational self-determination."--Publisher description

Consider the oyster by M. F. K Fisher( Book )

1 edition published in 1997 in Japanese and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"M.F.K. Fisher, whom John Updike has called our "poet of the appetites," here pays tribute to that most delicate and enigmatic of foods--the oyster. As she tells of oysters found in stews, in soups, roasted, baked, fried, prepared à la Rockefeller or au naturel--and of the pearls sometimes found therein--Fisher describes her mother's joy at encountering oyster loaf in a girls' dorm in he 1890's, recalls her own initiation into the "strange cold succulence" of raw oysters as a young woman in Marseille and Dijon, and explores both the bivalve's famed aphrodisiac properties and its equally notorious gut-wrenching powers. Plumbing the "dreadful but exciting" life of the oyster, Fisher invites readers to share in the comforts and delights that this delicate edible evokes, and enchants us along the way with her characteristically wise and witty prose." http://catdir.loc.gov/catdir/description/hol054/88061169.html
