Summary Book Review In the Shadows of the Dao by Thomas Michael:

Download or read book In the Shadows of the Dao written by Thomas Michael and published by SUNY Press. This book was released on 2015-09-21 with total page 334 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Challenges standard views of the origins of the Daodejing, revealing the work’s roots in a tradition of physical cultivation. Thomas Michael’s study of the early history of the Daodejing reveals that the work is grounded in a unique tradition of early Daoism, one unrelated to other early Chinese schools of thought and practice. The text is associated with a tradition of hermits committed to yangsheng, a particular practice of physical cultivation involving techniques of breath circulation in combination with specific bodily movements leading to a physical union with the Dao. Michael explores the ways in which the text systematically anchored these techniques to a Dao-centered worldview. Including a new translation of the Daodejing, In the Shadows of the Dao opens new approaches to understanding the early history of one of the world’s great religious texts and great religious traditions. “Michael’s work provides a fresh and innovative methodological approach to a well-known and much studied text. Unlike the vast majority of previous studies, which situate the Daodejing in an ahistorical philosophical realm divorced from ritual and practice, Michael’s analysis takes seriously the possibility that the text both contains and advocates for self-transformative practices. In addition, his translation, while not intended to be a stand-alone work, significantly contributes another important perspective. This excellent, groundbreaking book lays the foundation for a new round of vigorous debate and scholarly attention.” — Jeffrey Dippmann, coeditor of Riding the Wind with Liezi: New Perspectives on the Daoist Classic

Summary Book Review Shadows of Doubt by Stefania Tutino:

Download or read book Shadows of Doubt written by Stefania Tutino and published by Oxford University Press. This book was released on 2013-12-23 with total page 336 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Named a Book of the Year by History Today In a compelling examination of the hermeneutical and epistemological anxieties gripping both the early modern and our current world, Stefania Tutino shows that post-Reformation Catholicism did not simply usher in modernity, but postmodernity as well. This deft study provides new insight into and a fresh perspective on the context of the Protestant Reformation and the Catholic response to it. Shadows of Doubt provides a collection of case-studies centered on the relationship between language, the truth of men, and the Truth of theology. Most of these case-studies illuminate little-known figures in the history of early modern Catholicism. While the militant aspects of post-Tridentine Catholicism can be appreciated by studying figures such as Robert Bellarmine or Cesare Baronio, who were the solid pillars of the intellectual and theological structure of the Church of Rome, an understanding of the more fragile and shadowy aspects of early modernity requires an exploration of the demimonde of post-Reformation Catholicism. Tutino examines the thinkers whom few scholars mention and fewer read, demonstrating that post-Reformation Catholicism was not simply a world of solid certainties to be opposed to the Protestant falsehoods, but also a world in which the stable Truth of theology existed alongside and contributed to a number of far less stable truths concerning the world of men. Post-Reformation Catholic culture was not only concerned with articulating and affirming absolute truths, but also with exploring and negotiating the complex links between certainty and uncertainty. By bringing to light this fascinating and hitherto largely unexamined side of post-Tridentine Catholicism, Tutino reveals that post-Reformation Catholic culture was a vibrant laboratory for many of the issues that we face today: it was a world of fractures and fractured truths which we, with a heightened sensitivity to discrepancies and discontinuities, are now well-suited to understand.

The Shadow of Christ in the Book of Job examines the historical character of Job as a typological figure, whose experience of suffering leading to glory was meant to portray the work of Christ, and provide assurance and comfort to all who bear affliction in faith.

This book was released on 2017-07-06 with total page pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Hans Baron, Karl Popper, Leo Strauss and Erich Auerbach were among the many German-speaking Jewish intellectuals who fled Continental Europe with the rise of Nazism in the 1930s. Their scholarship, though not normally considered together, is studied here to demonstrate how, despite their different disciplines and distinctive modes of working, they responded polemically in the guise of traditional scholarship to their shared trauma. For each, the political calamity of European fascism was a profound intellectual crisis, requiring an intellectual response which Weinstein and Zakai now contextualize, ideologically and politically. They exemplify just how extensively, and sometimes how subtly, 1930s and 1940s scholarship was used not only to explain, but to fight the political evils that had infected modernity, victimizing so many. An original perspective on a popular area of research, this book draws upon a mass of secondary literature to provide an innovative and valuable contribution to twentieth-century intellectual history.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This book mediates a dialectics between power and subjectivity versus history and politics. The invention of Africa is not merely a residue of Africa's encounter with Europe but a project in continuity in contemporary history of Africa, where history has become a location of struggle and meaning, a location of power and domination. Eze contends that postcolonial African studies that thrive by way of unanimity, analogy, or homogenenity are merely advancing a "defeatist" historicism. It attempts to gain essence by inverting the terms of colonial discourse and is decisively implicated in the very logic of coloniality. This method of historiography not only stifles the overall socio-political imagination of contemporary Africa but offers a dogmatic blueprint for politics of domination. Eze argues that a chance for an African Renaissance is dependent on review mechanisms of African historiography.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: In a review of the work of Karl Jaspers composed several years before the publication of his book Being and Time, Martin Heidegger suggested that the philosophical orientations of his period had made a wrong turn and skirted by the fundamental path of thought. He suggested that instead of taking up a heritage of original questions, his contemporaries had become preoccupied with secondary issues, accepting as fundamental what was in fact only incidental. In the years that followed, Heidegger's promise to reorient philosophy in terms of the Seinsfrage, the question of Being, exercised a well-known influence on successive generations of thinkers on a global scale. The present book delves into the philosophical sources of this influence and raises the question whether Heidegger indeed made good on the promise to reveal for thought what is truly fundamental. In proposing this investigation, the author assumes that it is not sufficient to take Heidegger at his word, but that it is necessary to scrutinize what is posited as fundamental in light of its broader implications-above all for ethico-political judgment and for historical reflection. After addressing this question in the first part of the book, the second part examines the significance of Heidegger's reorientation of philosophy through the prism of its critical reception in the thought of Hannah Arendt, Emmanuel Levinas, and Paul Ricoeur.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: French North America in the Shadows of Conquest is an interdisciplinary, postcolonial, and continental history of Francophone North America across the long twentieth century, revealing hidden histories that so deeply shaped the course of North America. Modern French North America was born from the process of coming to terms with the idea of conquest after the fall of New France. The memory of conquest still haunts those 20 million Francophones who call North America home. The book re-examines the contours of North American history by emphasizing alliances between Acadians, Cajuns, and Québécois and French Canadians in their attempt to present a unified challenge against the threat of assimilation, linguistic extinction, and Anglophone hegemony. It explores cultural trauma narratives and the social networks Francophones constructed and shows how North American history looks radically different from their perspective. This book presents a missing chapter in the annals of linguistic and ethnic differences on a continent defined, in part, by its histories of dispossession. It will be of interest to scholars and students of American and Canadian history, particularly those interested in French North America, as well as ethnic and cultural studies, comparative history, the American South, and migration.

Download or read book In the Shadows of the Holocaust and Communism written by Alena Heitlinger and published by Transaction Publishers. This book was released on 2011-12-31 with total page 251 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: When traumatic historical events and transformations coincide with one’s entry into young adulthood, the personal and historical significance of life-course transitions interact and intensify. In this volume, Alena Heitlinger examines identity formation among a generation of Czech and Slovak Jews who grew up under communism, coming of age during the de-Stalinization period of 1962-1968. Heitlinger’s main focus is on the differences and similarities within and between generations, and on the changing historical and political circumstances of state socialism/communism that have shaped an individual’s consciousness and identity—as a Jew, assimilated Czech, Slovak, Czechoslovak and, where relevant, as an émigré or an immigrant. The book addresses a larger set of questions about the formation of Jewish identity in the midst of political upheavals, secularization, assimilation, and modernity: Who is a Jew? How is Jewish identity defined? How does Jewish identity change based on different historical contexts? How is Jewish identity transmitted from one generation to the next? What do the Czech and Slovak cases tell us about similar experiences in other former communist countries, or in established liberal democracies? Heitlinger explores the official and unofficial transmission of Holocaust remembering (and non-remembering), the role of Jewish youth groups, attitudes toward Israel and Zionism, and the impact of the collapse of communism. This volume is rich in both statistical and archival data and in its analysis of historical, institutional, and social factors. Heitlinger’s wide-ranging approach shows how history, generational, and individual biography intertwine in the formation of ethnic identity and its ambiguities.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: These essays by eminent European intellectual and cultural historian Anson Rabinbach address the writings of key figures in twentieth-century German philosophy. Rabinbach explores their ideas in relation to the two world wars and the horrors facing Europe at that time. Analyzing the work of Benjamin and Bloch, he suggests their indebtedness to the traditions of Jewish messianism. In a discussion of Hugo Ball's little-known Critique of the German Intelligentsia, Rabinbach reveals the curious intellectual career of the Dadaist and antiwar activist turned-nationalist and anti-Semite. His examination of Heidegger's "Letter on Humanism" and Jaspers's The Question of German Guilt illuminates the complex and often obscure political referents of these texts. Turning to Horkheimer and Adorno's Dialectic of Enlightenment, Rabinbach offers an arresting new interpretation of this central text of the critical theory of the Frankfurt School. Subtly and persuasively argued, his book will become an indispensable reference point for all concerned with twentieth-century German history and thought.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: During my 28-years of service as a military chaplain in the United States Armed Forces, I wore the uniforms of the US Navy, US Marine Corps, and US Air Force. I had tours of duty in the United States and overseas. The senior chaplains with whom I worked and to whom I was responsible for each day's work, were of senior rank, and men (I briefly served under a woman while deployed in the Middle East) who were all Christian, mostly of the Protestant faith. I describe my time with them, and the atmosphere they created both for the chapel and chapel staff community as for the entire base. Uniformly, I found them intolerant of other religions, refusing to accede to my place at the table of authority and decision. One individual was an anti-Semite, a man who took every opportunity to undermine my place at the base we were at (Naval Station Subic Bay, Philippines). The hours following the weekly staff meeting were when he expressed his outrage at the existence of the State of Israel while promoting the rights of the Palestinians. He belittled every aspect of my work at this base. His vilifying statements, expressed in shouting outbursts at the highest pitch of screech and rage, were done without any interest in any form of civility or decency. Once unleashed, he poured forth his fecal filth, resulting, in his expressing his determination: For me not being able to stay in the Navy and to never be promoted to a higher rank. But this anti-Semite's intentions and actions were thwarted by an extraordinary event that countered the immediacy of negativity. The long-term effects of that man's actions resulted in a festering poison that was never eradicated throughout the time I was in the military. I also describe other seniors, with their foibles and careerism, their overall limitations, and crass behaviors. In two instances, I joined a group of African-Americans at two Air Force bases who were intent on gathering sufficient racist information for a legal challenge with the ACLU. I was honored to sit with them, considering ways to oust the racists who sat in the leadership position. I retired as a Major and did so honorably. I regret working with these miserable miscreants who expressed virtue and grace but whose hearts were filled with limitation, dishonor, and evil. In the final analysis, I regret having served alongside these people. They did not deserve my presence and they certainly did not earn my esteem or respect. I am often thanked for my years of military service, immediately seeing a nod of respect at the sacrifices made during these nearly three decades of time. These two volumes, detailing names, places, and settings describe the details and how I coped with persons who represented an unwelcome face, one of barest tolerance at the necessity of my presence and, by extension, the presence of the small Jewish community at that military base. I encountered harsh Christian fundamentalism, promoted by these Christian chaplains, and extended by them to their counterparts in the military base community. Facing such negative attitudes in each base, I realized the severe limitations of my presence. And by the time of my retirement, I was literally counting the days when I would never again meet with these people. These are unpleasant vignettes, but they are true insofar as my recollection of them. And one of the purposes of these volumes is to remove the veneer of naïveté about this world and its people. In the end, I am ambiguous about that commitment, partly proud I persevered, but also ashamed at the cost such commitment demanded. I leave it to the reader to determine if the sacrifice was worthwhile.
