Freud And the Legacy Of Moses Richard J Bernstein Wayne Proudfoot Cambridge Studies in Religion and Critical Thought 4 ISBN 0521638771 used book for sale in Australian second hand book shop Freud And the Legacy Of Moses (Cambridge Studies in Religion and Critical Thought 4) -by- Richard J Bernstein -edited by- Wayne Proudfoot et al. ISBN 0521638771. Philosophy. Judaism. Freud's last book, 'Moses and Monotheism', was published in 1939 during one of the darkest periods in Jewish history; this scandalous and difficult book has often been vilified and dismissed because Freud claims that Moses was not a Hebrew but an Egyptian, and he also claims that the Jews murdered Moses in the wilderness; Bernstein argues that a close reading of 'Moses and Monotheism' reveals an underlying powerful coherence in which Freud seeks to specify the distinctive character and contribution of the Jewish people; the legacy of the strict ethical monotheism of Moses is the progress of spirituality (the advance of intellectuality); it is this character that has enabled the Jewish people to survive despite persecution and virulent antisemitism, and Freud proudly identifies himself with this legacy of Moses; in his analysis of Freud's often misunderstood book, Bernstein goes on to show how Freud expands and deepens our understanding of a religious tradition by revealing its unconscious dynamics. (Cambridge University Press. 1998) Used second hand softcover book. 151 pages. In fine condition.

Goethe's Science Of Living Form The Artistic Stages by Nigel Hoffmann ISBN 9780932776358/0932776353 used book for sale in Australian second hand book shop Goethe's Science Of Living Form The Artistic Stages -by- Nigel Hoffmann. ISBN 9780932776358/0932776353. Art. The author shows how artistic capacities play an essential role in grasping the dynamic, living qualities of nature; he describes four stages of scientific enquiry that correspond to the four classical elements of Earth, Water, Air and Fire; thus modern analytical science with its causal thinking can be characterised as an Earth mode of cognition; combining scholarly and scientific acuity with artistic insight, Hoffman first characterises these four different ways of knowing and then applies them, leading us ever more deeply into the dynamic qualities of plants, animals and the landscape they live in. Published with the support of the Waldorf Curriculum Fund and the Foundation for Rudolph Steiner Books. Used second hand softcover book. 172 pages. (Adonis Science Books/Adonis Press. Hillsdale, NY. 2007) Corners bumped. Some marks inside rear cover and last free endpaper. Else in very good condition. Weight 400 grams.

The Hostess Hospitality Feminity and the Expropriation of Identity by Tracy McNulty (2007) ISBN 0816647419 used book for sale in Australian second hand book shop The Hostess: Hospitality, Femininity, and the Expropriation of Identity -by- Tracy McNulty (2007). ISBN 0816647419. The evolution of the idea of hospitality can be traced alongside the development of Western civilization. Etymologically, the host is the 'master', but this identity is established through expropriation and loss; the best host is the one who gives the most, ultimately relinquishing what defines him as master. In 'The Hostess', Tracy McNulty asks, What are the implications for personhood of sharing a person — a wife or daughter — as an act of hospitality? In many traditions, the hostess is viewed not as a subject but as the master’s property. A foreign presence that both sustains and undercuts him, the hostess embodies the interplay of self and other within the host’s own identity. Here McNulty combines critical readings of the Bible and Pierre Klossowski’s trilogy 'The Laws of Hospitality' with analyses of exogamous marital exchange, theological works from the Talmud to Aquinas, the writings of Kant and Nietzsche, and the theory of femininity in the work of Freud and Lacan. Ultimately, she contends, hospitality involves the boundary between the proper and the improper, affecting the subject as well as interpersonal relations. Tracy McNulty is assistant professor of romance studies at Cornell University. Used second hand softcover book. 280 pages. (University of Minnesota Press, Minneapolis MN, 2007) Very good condition. Weight 520 grams.
