Witchcraft and Magic in Europe, Volume 5 The Eighteenth and Nineteenth Centuries Edited by Bengt Ankarloo and Stuart Clark "Although the volumes are intended mainly for scholars, there is much in them to interest the common reader."--New Yorker "Reminds readers of the extent to which science, reason, and skepticism failed to destroy the realm of arcane arts and nightmares."--History The roots of European witchcraft and magic lie in Hebrew and other ancient Near Eastern cultures and in the Celtic, Nordic, and Germanic traditions of the Continent. For two millennia, European folklore and ritual have been imbued with the belief in the supernatural, yielding a rich trove of histories and images. A series that combines traditional approaches of political, legal, and social historians with critical syntheses of cultural anthropology, historical psychology, and gender studies, Witchcraft and Magic in Europe provides a modern, scholarly survey of the supernatural beliefs of Europeans from ancient times to the present day. Each of the six volumes in the series contains the work of distinguished scholars chosen for their expertise in a particular era or region. The eighteenth century saw the end of witch trials everywhere. The authors chart the process of and reasons for the decriminalization of witchcraft, but also challenge the widespread assumption that Europe then became "disenchanted." Here for the first time are surveys of the social role of witchcraft in European communities, as well as a full treatment of Victorian supernaturalism and of the continued importance of witchcraft and magic as topics of debate among intellectuals and other writers. Other volumes in the series Witchcraft and Magic in Europe: Ancient Greece and Rome The Twentieth Century Biblical and Pagan Societies The Middle Ages The Period of the Witch Trials Bengt Ankarloo is Professor of History at Lund University, Sweden. Stuart Clark is Professor of History at the University of Wales, Swansea. 1999 | 288 pages | 6 1/8 x 9 1/4 ISBN 978-0-8122-1706-3 | Paper | $24.95s |

Immanuel Velikovsky - The Truth Behind The Torment Paradigma Ltd

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Dr. Immanuel Velikovsky was one of the greatest scientists of modern times. However, because of his extraordinary findings in many different disciplines, he fell victim to one of the worst slandering campaigns since the Middle Ages. This book is a supplement to Velikovsky's biography "ABA - The Glory and the Torment", written by his daughter Ruth. Here, she publishes original letters in their entirety, shedding a revealing light on the defamatory campaign Velikovsky and his scientific work have been subjected to by the scientific establishment down to the present day. In a second part, plasma physicist C.J. Ransom undertakes a reevaluation of Velikovsky's research from the point of view of recent scientific developments.

Homo Ludens Angelico Press

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

In Homo Ludens, Johan Huizinga defines play as the central activity in flourishing societies. He identifies five characteristics of play: it is free; it is not "ordinary" or "real" life; it is distinct from "ordinary" life both as to locality and duration; it creates order; it is connected with no material interest, and from it no profit can be gained. With cross-cultural examples from the humanities, business, and politics, Huizinga examines play in all its diverse guises-as it relates to language, law, war, knowledge, poetry, myth, philosophy, art, and much more. As he writes, "Civilization is, in its earliest phases, played. It does not come from play like a baby detaching itself from the womb: it arises in and as play, and never leaves it." Starting with Plato, Huizinga traces the contribution of "man the player" through the Middle Ages, the Renaissance, and early modern world. With an eye for our own times he writes: "In American politics [play] is even more evident. Long before the two-party system had reduced itself to two gigantic teams whose political differences were hardly discernible to an outsider, electioneering in America had developed into a kind of national sport." With its remarkable historical sweep, Homo Ludens defines play for generations to come. "A fascinating account of 'man the player' and the contribution of play to civilization."-Harper's "A writer with a sharp and powerful intelligence, helped by a gift of expression and exposition which is very rare, Huizinga assembles and interprets one of the most fundamental elements of human culture: the instinct for play. Reading this volume, one suddenly discovers how profoundly the achievements in law, science, poverty, war, philosophy, and in the arts, are nourished by the instinct of play."-Roger Caillois, editor of Diogenes

Knight John Wiley & Sons

Inne 1

From the thunderous cavalry charge mounted to the firm recital of a solemn vow and the gentle murmurings of courtly love, echoes of the medieval knight live in the modern imagination as enduring symbols of courage, adventure, romance, and honor. But what was the knight's life really life? How was he selected and trained? Did the knight keep his vows? How did he make a living?' The Knight plunges you into the world of the Middle Ages and reveals the truth behind the countless legends of knightly valor and chivalry. Through true stories that recount major and minor events of the period, author Alan Baker creates a vivid portrait of medieval culture and offers penetrating insights into the life and times of the knight in shining armor.
