(P/B) THE FORGE AND THE CRUCIBLE
ORIGINS AND STRUCTURES OF ALCHEMY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0991-0477

Primitive man's discovery of the ability to change matter from one state to another brought about a profound change in spiritual behavior. In The Forge and the Crucible, Mircea Eliade follows the ritualistic adventures of these ancient societies, adventures rooted in the people's awareness of an awesome new power. The new edition of "The Forge and the Crucible" contains an updated appendix, in which Eliade lists works on Chinese alchemy published in the past few years. He also discusses the importance of alchemy in Newton's scientific evol...

(P/B) HOW DOES ANALYSIS CURE?
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0991-0525

The Austro-American psychoanalyst Heinz Kohut was one of the foremost leaders in his field and developed the school of self-psychology, which sets aside the Freudian explanations for behavior and looks instead at self/object relationships and empathy in order to shed light on human behavior. In How Does Analysis Cure? Kohut presents the theoretical framework for self-psychology, and carefully lays out how the self develops over the course of time. Kohut also specifically defines healthy and unhealthy cases of Oedipal complexes and narcissi...

(P/B) NIHILISM BEFORE NIETZSCHE
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0991-0013

In the twentieth century, we often think of Nietzsche, nihilism, and the death of God as inextricably connected. But, in this pathbreaking work, Michael Gillespie argues that Nietzsche, in fact, misunderstood nihilism, and that his misunderstanding has misled nearly all succeeding thought about the subject. Reconstructing nihilism's intellectual and spiritual origins before it was given its determinitive definition by Nietzsche, Gillespie focuses on the crucial turning points in the development of nihilism, from Ockham and the nominalist r...

(P/B) LANDSCAPE AND POWER
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0991-0305

The first edition of this book, published in 1994, reshaped the direction of landscape studies by considering landscape not simply as an object to be seen or a text to be read, but as an instrument of cultural force, a central tool in the creation of national and social identities. This second edition adds not only a new preface, but five new essays - from Edward Said, W. J. T. Mitchell, Jonathan Bordo, Michael Taussig, and Robert Pogue Harrison-extending the scope of the book in remarkable ways. (From the publisher)...

(P/B) EPIDEMIC EMPIRE
COLONIALISM, CONTAGION, AND TERROR 1817-2020
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0991-0551

Terrorism is a cancer, an infection, an epidemic, a plague. For more than a century, this metaphor has figured insurgent violence as contagion in order to contain its political energies. In Epidemic Empire, Anjuli Fatima Raza Kolb shows that this trope began in responses to the Indian Mutiny of 1857 and tracks its tenacious hold through 9/11 and beyond. The result is the first book-length study to approach the global War on Terror from a postcolonial literary perspective. Raza Kolb assembles a diverse archive from colonial India, imperial...

(P/B) METAPHORS WE LIVE BY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0991-0257

The now-classic Metaphors We Live By changed our understanding of metaphor and its role in language and the mind. Metaphor, the authors explain, is a fundamental mechanism of mind, one that allows us to use what we know about our physical and social experience to provide understanding of countless other subjects. Because such metaphors structure our most basic understandings of our experience, they are "metaphors we live by"-metaphors that can shape our perceptions and actions without our ever noticing them. In this updated edition of Lako...

(P/B) LOVE AND SAINT AUGUSTINE
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0991-0418

Hannah Arendt began her scholarly career with an exploration of Saint Augustine's concept of caritas, or neighborly love, written under the direction of Karl Jaspers and the influence of Martin Heidegger. After her German academic life came to a halt in 1933, Arendt carried her dissertation into exile in France, and years later took the same battered and stained copy to New York. During the late 1950s and early 1960s, as she was completing or reworking her most influential studies of political life, Arendt was simultaneously annotating and...

(P/B) STUDIES IN PLATONIC POLITICAL PHILOSOPHY

(H/B) THE AENEID
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0991-0519

"I sing of arms and the man... " So begins the Aeneid, greatest of Western epic poems. Virgil's story of the journey of Aeneas has been a part of our cultural heritage for so many centuries that it's all too easy to lose sight of the poem itself - of its brilliantly cinematic depiction of the sack of Troy; the monstrous hunger of the harpies; the intensity of Dido's love for the hero, and the blackness of her despair; and the violence that Aeneas and his men must endure before they can settle in Italy and build the civilization whose root...

(P/B) THE TACIT DIMENSION
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0991-0436

"I shall reconsider human knowledge by starting from the fact that we can know more than we can tell," writes Michael Polanyi, whose work paved the way for the likes of Thomas Kuhn and Karl Popper. The Tacit Dimension argues that tacit knowledge-tradition, inherited practices, implied values, and prejudgments-is a crucial part of scientific knowledge. Back in print for a new generation of students and scholars, this volume challenges the assumption that skepticism, rather than established belief, lies at the heart of scientific discovery. ...

(P/B) COMPLETE WORKS, SELECTED LETTERS
A BILINGUAL EDITION (FRENCH-ENGLISH)
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0991-0159

The enfant terrible of French letters, Jean-Nicholas-Arthur Rimbaud (1854-91) was a defiant and precocious youth who wrote some of the most remarkable prose and poetry of the nineteenth century, all before leaving the world of verse by the age of twenty-one. More than a century after his death, the young rebel-poet continues to appeal to modern readers as much for his turbulent life as for his poetry; his stormy affair with fellow poet Paul Verlaine and his nomadic adventures in eastern Africa are as iconic as his hallucinatory poems and s...

(P/B) PLAYING THE OTHER
GENDER AND SOCIETY IN CLASSICAL GREEK LITERATURE
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0991-0526

Relations between the sexes was a pervasive concern of ancient Greek thought and literature, extending from considerations of masculine and feminine roles in domestic and political spheres to the organization of the cosmos in a pantheon of gods and goddesses. In Playing the Other Froma Zeitlin explores the diversity and complexity of these interactions through the most influential literary texts of the archaic and classical periods ranging from epic (Homer) and didactic poetry (Hesiod) to the theatrical productions of tragedy and comedy in...

(H/B) TOWARD '' NARURAL RIGHT AND HISTORY''
LECTURES AND ESSAYS BY LEO STRAUSS, 1937-1946
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0991-0549

Natural Right and History is widely recognized as Strauss's most influential work. The six lectures, written while Strauss was at the New School, and a full transcript of the 1949 Walgreen Lectures show Strauss working toward the ideas he would present in fully matured form in his landmark work. In them, he explores natural right and the relationship between modern philosophers and the thought of the ancient Greek philosophers, as well as the relation of political philosophy to contemporary political science and to major political and hist...

(P/B) THE SUMERIANS
THEIR HISTORY, CULTURE, AND CHARACTER
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0991-0174

The Sumerians, the pragmatic and gifted people who preceded the Semites in the land first known as Sumer and later as Babylonia, created what was probably the first high civilization in the history of man, spanning the fifth to the second millenniums B.C. This book is an unparalleled compendium of what is known about them. Professor Kramer communicates his enthusiasm for his subject as he outlines the history of the Sumerian civilization and describes their cities, religion, literature, education, scientific achievements, social structure,...

(P/B) PICTURE THEORY
ESSAYS ON VERBAL AND VISUAL REPRESENTATION
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0991-0318

What precisely, W. J. T. Mitchell asks, are pictures (and theories of pictures) doing now, in the late twentieth century, when the power of the visual is said to be greater than ever before, and the "pictorial turn" supplants the "linguistic turn" in the study of culture? This book by one of America's leading theorists of visual representation offers a rich account of the interplay between the visible and the readable across culture, from literature to visual art to the mass media.

(P/B) CHILDREN OF THE GREEK CIVIL WAR
REFUGEES AND THE POLITICS OF MEMORY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0991-0420

At the height of the Greek Civil War in 1948, thirty-eight thousand children were evacuated from their homes in the mountains of northern Greece. The Greek Communist Party relocated half of them to orphanages in Eastern Europe, while their adversaries in the national government placed the rest in children's homes elsewhere in Greece. A point of contention during the Cold War, this controversial episode continues to fuel tensions between Greeks and Macedonians and within Greek society itself. Loring M. Danforth and Riki Van Boeschoten prese...

(P/B) HELLENICITY
BETWEEN ETHNICITY AND CULTURE
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0991-0141

In today's cosmopolitan world, ethnic and national identity has assumed an ever-increasing importance. But how is this identity formed, and how does it change over time? With Hellenicity, Jonathan M. Hall explores these questions in the context of ancient Greece, drawing on an exceptionally wide range of evidence to determine when, how, why, and to what extent the Greeks conceived themselves as a single people. Hall argues that a subjective sense of Hellenic identity emerged in Greece much later than is normally assumed. For instance, he s...

(P/B) MEMORY, HISTORY, FORGETTING
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0991-0189

Why do major historical events such as the Holocaust occupy the forefront of the collective consciousness, while profound moments such as the Armenian genocide, the McCarthy era, and France's role in North Africa stand distantly behind? Is it possible that history "overly remembers" some events at the expense of others? A landmark work in philosophy, Paul Ricoeur's Memory, History, Forgetting examines this reciprocal relationship between remembering and forgetting, showing how it affects both the perception of historical experience and the...

(P/B) MEANING IN HISTORY
THEOLOGICAL IMPLICATIONS OF THE PHILOSOPHY OF HISTORY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0991-0524

Modern man sees with one eye of faith and one eye of reason. Consequently, his view of history is confused. For centuries, the history of the Western world has been viewed from the Christian or classical standpoint - from a deep faith in the Kingdom of God or a belief in recurrent and eternal life-cycles. The modern mind, however, is neither Christian nor pagan - and its interpretations of history are Christian in derivation and anti-Christian in result. To develop this theory, Karl L?with - beginning with the more accessible philosophies ...
