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.

The author engages topics such as the stubborn survival of the miraculous, the Benightment roles of Rosicrucianism and Freemasonry and the widespread pursuit of magic and alchemy.414 pages, index.

Description:
In 1985, the author fell victim to a crippling and almost suicidal depression, the same illness that took the lives of Randall Jarrell and Primo Levi, Vincent Van Gogh, and Virginia Woolf. That he survived this decent into madness is something of a miracle. That he manages to convey its tortuous progression and his eventual recovery with such candor and precision makes this book a rare feat of literature, one that will arouse a shock of recognition even in those readers who have been spared the suffering it describes. 86 pages.

Description:
Sound clean copy in DJ. During a meteoric career that spanned from 1825 to 1834, David Douglas made the first systematic collections of flora and fauna over many parts of the greater Pacific Northwest. Despite his early death, colleagues in Great Britain attached the Douglas name to more than 80 different species, including the iconic timber tree of the region. David Douglas, a Naturalist at Work is a colorfully illustrated collection of essays that examines various aspects of Douglas's career, demonstrating the connections between his work in the Pacific Northwest of the 19th century and the place we know today. From the Columbia River's perilous bar to luminous blooms of mountain wildflowers; from ever-changing frontiers of technology to the quiet seasonal rhythms of tribal families gathering roots, these essays collapse time to shed light on people and landscapes.
