Description : This groundbreaking book proposes that the rise of alphabetic literacy reconfigured the human brain and brought about profound changes in history, religion, and gender relations. Making remarkable connections across brain function, myth, and anthropology, Dr. Shlain shows why pre-literate cultures were principally informed by holistic, right-brain modes that venerated the Goddess, images, and feminine values. Writing drove cultures toward linear left-brain thinking and this shift upset the balance between men and women, initiating the decline of the feminine and ushering in patriarchal rule. Examining the cultures of the Israelites, Greeks, Christians, and Muslims, Shlain reinterprets ancient myths and parables in light of his theory. Provocative and inspiring, this book is a paradigm-shattering work that will transform your view of history and the mind.

Description : During the Scottish Enlightenment the relationship between aesthetics and ethics became deeply ingrained: beauty was the sensible manifestation of virtue; the fine arts represented the actions of a virtuous mind; to deeply understand artful and natural beauty was to identify with moral beauty; and the aesthetic experience was indispensable in making value judgments. This book reveals the history of how the Scots applied the vast landscape of moral philosophy to the specific territories of beauty - in nature, aesthetics and ethics - in the eighteenth century. The author explores a wide variety of sources, from academic lectures and institutional record, to more popular texts such as newspapers and pamphlets, to show how the idea that beauty and art made individuals and society more virtuous was elevated and understood in Scottish society.

Description : 'I have spent almost 33 of the last 53 years in and out of prison, but mainly in. I was a juvenile offender back in the mid 1970s and went on to become an adult prisoner in the 1980s and beyond. My shortest prison sentence was 7 days (for criminal damage) and my longest sentence was life (for bank robbery and possession of firearms). I have 58 criminal convictions for everything from attempted theft to armed robbery and prison escape, and I was a career criminal for most of my life. What I do not know about criminal and prison slang could be written on the back of a postage stamp and still leave room for The Lord's Prayer ...' From ex-professional bank robber and bestselling author Noel Smith, this is the most authoritative dictionary of criminal slang out there - and an unmissable journey, through words, into the heart of the criminal world.

This book is full of light and dark line illustrations with >70+ coloring pages that will keep you busy for weeks or months! These images are hand-drawn, so the lines are organic and feel natural versus mechanically perfect. This book also includes bonus coloring pages from the artist's other coloring books - plus - discount codes for future purchases. The artist, Dawn D. Boyer, Ph.D., has produced a compilation of THREE SETS of delightful Zen-doodled Alphabet Letters in this coloring book. The first set is external designs to the alphabet letter. The second set is internal designs within the outline of the alphabet letter. The third set is blank letters so you can design and add your own doodles and designs. This allows the colorist to use their imagination in multiple ways with their choice of media. In this book you will find dozens of illustrations created from the artist's hand-drawn original inspired sketches. You will find intermediate to complicated images in this coloring book, including heavy lined drawings with simple shapes and designs and more fine-art styles with varied line weights (thin to medium). Details about the book: ** Non-perforated pages (you can use a craft knife or razor to remove them) ** Glue-bound spine ** Pages are 8.5" x 11" with a half-inch margin, allowing larger 9" x 7.5" images to color ** Three pages of pre-views of sample drawings in the book should be available on Amazon's "Look Between the Covers" function to see the types of illustrations in the book ** Single-Pages - all the illustrations have blank pages on the back side so you don't have to worry about your 'wetter' media ruining any images on the other side ** Paper weight is the thickness of standard paper-back books; some media may bleed through (test first, back with cardboard or plastic!) What can you do with the book once you have finished? Once the designs in this book are colored - give the books as gifts, use pages as scrapbook background art, create greeting cards, or use the designs and use in multi-media art. Frame them and hang them in the office, classroom, or at home where the designs can continue to inspire friends, family, and co-workers. The possibilities are endless! Coloring can be cathartic for those needing something that doesn't take a lot of thought, while allowing them to pick and choose their personal colors to create an artistic masterpiece. The pages of delightful and imaginative illustrations of fairy abodes allows you to relax while you wile away the hours and find peace in your own mind.

Description : ‘Cool and intelligent, unsettling and deeply felt, Naudé’s voice is something new in South African writing.’ – Damon Galgut From an ancient castle in Bavaria and a pre-War villa in Milan, to a winter landscape in Lesotho and the suburban streets of Pretoria, the stories in The Alphabet of Birds take an acute look at South Africans at home and abroad. In one story, a strange, cheerful Japanese man visits a young South African as he takes care of his dying mother; in another, a woman battles corrupt bureaucracy in the Eastern Cape. A man trails his lover through the underground dance clubs of Berlin, while in London a young banker moves through layers of decadence as a soul would through purgatory. Pulsating with passion, loss, and melancholia, S J Naudé’s collection The Alphabet of Birds is filled with music, art, architecture, myth, the search for origins and the shifing relationships between people.
