Creators on Creating: Awakening and Cultivating The Imaginative Mind, Frank Barron, Alfonso Montuori, Anthea Barron [Editors]
6 Frank Barron, Alfonso Montuori, Anthea Barron [Editors] Creators on Creating: Awakening and Cultivating The Imaginative Mind
Jeremy P. Tarcher 243881 USA 1997 0874778549 / 9780874778540 Softcover Near Fine Condition Within the pages of Creators on Creating lies an impressively diverse collection of writings by world-famous artists, musicians, writers, scientists, and filmmakers who have provided us with joy, illumination, and profundity through their craft. In this anthology we learn how they foster and harness the power behind their awesome gift, and we comprehend the responsibility that accompanies it. Richard Feynman and Annie Dillard relate how they opened their minds to new insights, paths, and trajectories, and Federico Fellini and Henry Miller shed light on the passion that drove their creativity. Mary Shelley and Michel Foucault describe how they used their imagination to challenge existing assumptions, customs, and orders; Maya Angelou, Brian Eno, and Tony Kushner tell of the wisdom they garnered by working within a creative ecology of people, ideas, and experiences; Leonardo da Vinci and Frank Zappa reveal how they balanced freedom and exploration with hard work and mastery of their craft; and Laurence Olivier and Karen Finley give us the "courage to go naked." Inspirational and insightful, practical and idealistic, this collection is an invitation to engage some of the world's most artistic and ingenious people in a rewarding dialogue. 245 pages.

The Book of Tea, Kakuzo Okakura [Edited by Everett F. Bleiler]
13 Kakuzo Okakura [Edited by Everett F. Bleiler] The Book of Tea
Dover Publications 240226 New York 0486200701 / 9780486200705 Softcover Good Condition Kakuzo Okakura, who was known in America as a scholar, art critic, and Curator of Chinese and Japanese Art at the Boston Museum of Fine Arts, directed almost his entire adult life toward the preservation and reawakening of the Japanese national heritage - in art, ethics, social customs, and other areas of life - in the face of the Westernizing influences that were revolutionizing Japan around the turn of the century. This modern classic is essentially an apology for Eastern traditions and feelings to the Western world - not in passionate, oversentimental terms, but with a charm and underlying toughness which clearly indicate some of the enduring differences between the Eastern and Western mind. Okakura exhibits the distinctive "personality" of the East through the philosophy of Teaism and the ancient Japanese tea ceremony. This ceremony is particularly revelatory of a conservative strain in Japanese culture; its ideals of aesthetic tranquility and submission to the ways of the past find no parallel in the major cultural motifs of the West. Not only does he discuss the tea ceremony and its rigid formalities, and the cult and patterns of belief surrounding tea and tea-drinking, but Okakura also considers religious influences, origins, and history, and goes into the importance of flowers and floral arrangements in Japanese life - their proper appreciation and cultivation, great tea-masters of the past, the tea-room with its air of serenity and purity, and the aesthetic and quasi-religious values pervading all these activities and attitudes. Okakura's English style was graceful, yet exceptionally clear and precise, and this book is one of the most delightful essay-volumes to the English language. It has introduced hundreds of thousands of American readers to Japanese thinking and traditions. This new, corrected edition, complete with an illuminating preliminary essay on Okakura's life and work, will provide an engrossing account for anyone interested in the current and central themes of Oriental life. 76 pages. Fading to spine. Inscription to previous owner on front endpaper. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilogram.

17 Nicholas Fearn Philosophy - The Latest Answers To The Oldest Questions
Atlantic 243256 Great Britain 2005 First Edition 1843540681 / 9781843540687 Softcover Very Good Condition No Dust Jacket The work of the great philosophers of the past is well known. From Aristotle and Plato to Kant and Wittgenstein, the answers to life's biggest questions have been discussed and debated endlessly. But, as philosophy itself teaches, there is never a final solution to a philosophical problem. In the search for higher meaning, Nicholas Fearn has travelled the globe to interview the world's most distinguished thinkers, from Derek Parfit, David Wiggins and Bernard Williams, to Donald Davidson, Richard Rorty and Bernard-Henri Levi. Philosophy is a brilliant and compelling guide to the latest answers to the oldest questions, bringing to light what today's philosophers think about what it is to be human. 225 pages.

Ethics Matters, Peter and Charlotte Vardy
18 Peter and Charlotte Vardy Ethics Matters
SCM Press 243112 Great Britain 2012 0334043913 / 9780334043911 Softcover Very Good Condition How do we know the difference between right and wrong? How can we make decisions about issues from germ-line genetic engineering to the regulation of banking, from nuclear power to ethnic bioweapons, from end-of-life care to global warming? What does it mean to live a good life? Ethics Matters introduces students and general readers to the business of making moral decisions, engaging them in meaningful dialogue and inspiring them to find out more. Beginning with a discussion of the question of truth in Ethics, Peter and Charlotte Vardy outline and evaluate major approaches to doing ethics from Natural Law and Virtue Ethics to Situation Ethics and Postmodernism, considering how these might inform decision making in today's world. Ethics Matters places the latest scholarship in context, clarifying how it relates to today's biggest challenges, without in any sense 'dumbing down'. The style is engaging and accessible; good use is made of examples from film, literature and current affairs to shine a light on the fundamental philosophic questions which underpin practical dilemmas. A new web site, www.what-matters.org provides recommendations for further reading, a rich anthology of primary texts, questions for discussion and related activities. Several pages have fold lines at corners. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilogram. Category: Religion, Theology; Reference; Philosophy. ISBN/EAN: 9780334043911. Inventory No: 243112.
