Consolations of Philosophy Penguin
Alain de Botton, best-selling author of How Proust can Change Your Life, has set six of the finest minds in the history of philosophy to work on the problems of everyday life. Here then are Socrates, Epicurus, Seneca, Montaigne, Schopenhauer and Nietzsche on some of the things that bother us all; lack of money, the pain of love, inadequacy, anxiety, the fear of failure and the pressure to conform.
Essential Difference Penguin
Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna
Simon Baron-Cohen's "The Essential Difference: Men, Women and the Extreme Male Brain" is an unflinching look at the scientific evidence behind the innate sex differences of the mind. Men and women have always seemed to think in entirely different ways, from conversation and communication to games and gadgets. But are these differences created by society, or do our minds come ready-wired one way or another, with female brains tending towards interaction and male towards organisation? And could this mean that autism - rather than being a mental anomaly - is in fact simply an extreme male brain? Why are female brains better at empathasing? How are male brains designed to analyse systems? And what really makes men and women different? Simon Baron-Cohen explores list-making, lying and two decades of research in a ground-breaking examination of how our brains can be male or female but always completely fascinating. "Compelling...Inspiring". ("Guardian"). "This is no Mars/Venus whimsy, but the conclusion from twenty years of experiment". ("Evening Standard"). "A devastating contribution to the gender debate". ("Mail on Sunday"). "A fascinating, thought-provoking book". ("Observer"). Simon Baron-Cohen is Professor at Cambridge University in the fields of psychology and psychiatry. He is also the Director of Cambridge's internationally renowned Autism Research Centre. He has carried out research into social neuroscience over a career spanning twenty years. He is the author of "Mindblindness" and "Zero Degrees of Empathy".
Awake in the Dream World Jonathan Cape Ltd
Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna
Otherworldly, provocative, and strange, Audrey Niffenegger's art is a vital a part of her vision as her best-selling novels The Time Traveler's Wife and Her Fearful Symmetry. Awake in the Dream World is a mid-career retrospective of Nifffenegger's work, reflecting her talent for cultivating a captivating narrative exclusively through pictures and her own confrontations with life, mortality, and magic. Niffenegger's fantastical body of work is reminiscent of renowned pen and ink predecessors such as Edward Gorey, Aubrey Beardsley, Egon Schiele, Edward Dulac, and Horst Janssen, but with a brutally honest and unapologetically strange female perspective that touches upon the universal trials of life - death and decay, love, jealousy, redemption, and the inevitability of change. Her works on paper, lithographs, and aquatints reflect the often surreal narratives of her artist's books. Through self-portraiture, Niffenegger reveals her own self-assurance and whimsy alongside anxiety and loneliness, probing darker corners of the human heart and mind, often exploring the hopeless struggle with what Shakespeare called 'this bloody tyrant, Time'. Essays by Audrey Niffenegger, National Museum of Women in the Arts, Curator of Book Arts Krystyna Wasserman, and Art Institute of Chicago Curator and School of the Art Institute Professor Mark Pascale explore the artist's influences and work. It is published in conjunction with an exhibition at the National Museum of Women in the Arts.
