Download or read book Reality/The Inconceivable Truth written by Michael Duncan and published by Dorrance Publishing. This book was released on 2014-01-16 with total page 356 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This books aim is to impart the ultimate purpose of human existence, and that goal is called self-realization. "... it is to restore our lost connection with our divine friend, who is, and has always been, situated within the core of our hearts. The conscious effort of reviving one's relationship with the Lord's localized feature is also known as the dovetailing process". The author, Mike Duncan, seeks to imbue to his readers a taste of the stunning truth about God; a taste, said to be so sweet, that it is sure to motivate the sincere truth seeking soul to investigate the eternal transcendental science by which one can come to know everything about Him. The author concludes that this science of self-realization, established personally by God, is the eternally approved method of approching Him. It is the only means by which one can rise above the illusory bodily conception of life, to the spiritual platform, the platform of reality on which everything is known. In the present degraded age of Kali, the age of quarrel, there is a special potency which is available to persons who accept the descending spiritual authority. His Divine Grace, Srila Prabhupada is the latest descendant from the spiritual world who is authorized by the Lord to present Him to the inhabitants of this mortal world. His Grace is instructing as follows: "One who is ignorant of the scientific knowledge of the soul does not look inside the body to find happiness in the soul. The living being, covered by the material body, does not see the happiness within himself, but runs after happiness in the material world. When one understands his real identity as spiritual being, he can understand the supreme spiritual being, Krishna, and the real happiness exchanged between Krishna and one's self" (SB, 7-13-29).

Summary Book Review Sensual Excess by Amber Jamilla Musser:
Download or read book Sensual Excess written by Amber Jamilla Musser and published by NYU Press. This book was released on 2018-11-06 with total page 240 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Reimagines black and brown sensuality to develop new modes of knowledge production In Sensual Excess, Amber Jamilla Musser imagines epistemologies of sensuality that emerge from fleshiness. To do so, she works against the framing of black and brown bodies as sexualized, objectified, and abject, and offers multiple ways of thinking with and through sensation and aesthetics. Each chapter draws our attention to particular aspects of pornotropic capture that black and brown bodies must always negotiate. Though these technologies differ according to the nature of their encounters with white supremacy, together they add to our understanding of the ways that structures of domination produce violence and work to contain bodies and pleasures within certain legible parameters. To do so, Sensual Excess analyzes moments of brown jouissance that exceed these constraints. These ruptures illuminate multiple epistemologies of selfhood and sensuality that offer frameworks for minoritarian knowledge production which is designed to enable one to sit with uncertainty. Through examinations of installations and performances like Judy Chicago’s The Dinner Party, Kara Walker’s A Subtlety, Patty Chang’s In Love and Nao Bustamante’s Neapolitan, Musser unpacks the relationships between racialized sexuality and consumption to interrogate foundational concepts in psychoanalytic theory, critical race studies, feminism, and queer theory. In so doing, Sensual Excess offers a project of knowledge production focused not on mastery, but on sensing and imagining otherwise, whatever and wherever that might be.

Summary Book Review A Socialist Realist History? by Kristina Jõekalda:
Download or read book A Socialist Realist History? written by Kristina Jõekalda and published by Vandenhoeck & Ruprecht. This book was released on 2019-06-17 with total page 279 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: How did the Eastern European and Soviet states write their respective histories of art and architecture during 1940s–1960s? The articles address both the Stalinist period and the Khrushchev Thaw, when the Marxist-Leninist discourse on art history was „invented“ and refined. Although this discourse was inevitably „Sovietized“ in a process dictated from Moscow, a variety of distinct interpretations emerged from across the Soviet bloc in the light of local traditions, cultural politics and decisions of individual authors. Although the new „official“ discourse often left space open for national concerns, it also gave rise to a countermovement in response to the aggressive ideologization of art and the preeminence assigned to (Socialist) Realist aesthetics.

Summary Book Review Chronometres by Krista Lysack:
Download or read book Chronometres written by Krista Lysack and published by Oxford University Press. This book was released on 2019-09-20 with total page 256 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: What does it mean to feel time, to sense its passing along the sinews and nerves of the body as much as the synapses of the mind? And how do books, as material arrangements of print and paper, mediate such temporal experiences? Chronometres: Devotional Literature, Duration, and Victorian Reading Culture is a study of the time-inflected reading practices of religious literature, the single largest market for print in Victorian Britain. It examines poetic cycles by John Keble, Alfred Tennyson, Christina Rossetti, and Frances Ridley Havergal; family prayer manuals, Sunday-reading books and periodicals; and devotional gift books and daily textbooks. Designed for diurnal and weekly reading, chronometrical literature tuned its readers' attentions to the idea of eternity and the everlasting peace of spiritual transcendence, but only in so far as it parcelled out reading into discrete increments that resembled the new industrial time-scales of factories and railway schedules. Chronometres thus takes up print culture, affect theory, and the religious turn in literary studies in order to explore the intersections between devotional practice and the condition of modernity. It argues that what defines Victorian devotional literature is the experience of its time signatures, those structures of feeling associated with its reading durations. For many Victorians, reading devotionally increasingly meant reading in regular portions and often according to the calendar and work-day in contrast to the liturgical year. Keeping pace with the temporal measures of modernity, devotion became a routinized practice: a way of synchronizing the interior life of spirit with the exigencies of clock time. Chronometres considers how the deliverances afforded through time-scaled reading are persistently materialised in the body, both that of the book and of the reader. Recognizing that literature and devotion are not timeless abstractions, it asks how the materiality of books, conceived as horological relationships through reading, might bring about the felt experience of time. Even as Victorian devotion invites us to tarry over the page, it also prompts the question: what if it is 'eternity' that keeps time with the clock?
