Description:
Friedrich Nietzsche, Europe's greatest philosopher... Josef Breur on of the founding fathers of psychoanalysis...a secret pact...a young medical intern named Sigmund Freud: these are the elements that combine to create the unforgettable saga of an imagined relationship between an extraordinary patient and a gifted healer. As this compelling novel opens, the unattainable Lou Salmoe begs Breuer to help treat Nietzsche's suicidal despair using his experimental 'talking cure'. As the eminent physician reluctantly accepts the task, he makes a powerful discovery - only through facing up to his own inner demons can he begin to help his patient. In this compelling novel, two brilliant and enigmatic men plumb the depths of their own romantic obsessions and discover the redemptive power of friendship.

Description:
Sound clean copy read once. As new Confucianism is reviving in China and spreading in America. The past and present interactions between the revived Confucianism and Daoism, Buddhism, Islam, and Christianity will likely shape the cultural and political developments in Chinese societies of mainland China, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Singapore, etc., and will have global implications in the globalizing world. In addition to the philosophical and theological articulations of Confucianism and other spiritual traditions, this volume includes empirical studies of and analytical reflections on the spiritual traditions in Chinese societies by historians, sociologists, and anthropologists. It is a collection of articles by the best minds in China and the West, and the top experts in multiple disciplines. Collectively, the volume provides an assessment of the present situation and points to the possibilities of future development of Confucianism and other spiritual traditions in modern China and beyond.

Condition: clean copy.Content: Anna and Maggie are best friends growing up in the tiny town of Deep Creek, Saskatchewan, in 1948. Anna comes from a big family this is about to get even bigger. Her mother is having another baby, leaving Anna to help with the household and her younger siblings, while her father's drinking is becoming a topic of town gossip. Maggie's life looks perfect from the outside - her father is the chief of police and the most important man in Deep Creek - but she often feels as though she doesn't belong in her own family. As the pressures and prejudices of small-town life get complicated for both girls, the only thing they can count on is their friendship. But when tragedy strikes, their loyalty to one another is put to the test.218 pages.

Hegel was a proponent of universal reason and Nietzsche its opponent; Hegel was a Christian thinker and Nietzsche a self-proclaimed 'Antichrist'; Hegel strove to modernity to its climax, while Nietzsche wanted to divert the evolution of modernity into completely different paths. In vies of these conflicting attitudes and philosophical projects, how did each of them assess the historical role of the Jews and their place in the modern world?236 pages, notes, bibliography, index.
