About this Item: Skyhorse Publishing, United States, 2016. Paperback. Condition: New. Reprint. Language: English . Brand New Book. A groundbreaking meditation on our human-animal relationships and the moral code that binds it. Adam s Task, Vicki Hearne s innovative masterpiece on animal training, brings our perennial discussion of the human-animal bond to a whole new metaphysical level. Based on studies of literary criticism, philosophy, and extensive hands-on experience in training, Hearne asserts, in boldly anthropomorphic terms, that animals (at least those that interact more with humans) are far more intelligent than we assume. In fact, they are capable of developing an understanding of the good, a moral code that influences their motives and actions. Drawing on an eclectic range of influences--Nietzsche, T. S. Eliot, Disney animal trainer William Koehler, and Genesis from the Bible, among others--Hearne writes in contemplative, exploratory, and brilliant prose as she interweaves personal anecdotes with philosophy. Hearne develops an entirely new system of animal training that contradicts modern animal behavioral research and that, as her examples show, is astonishingly effective. Widely praised, highly influential, and now with a new foreword by New York Times bestselling author Karen Joy Fowler, Adam s Task will make every trainer, animal psychologist, and animal-lover stop, think, and question.

About this Item: Wipf Stock Publishers, United States, 2008. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.Synopsis: Never before has the problem of evil been a more urgent subject for our reflection. The Yahwist confronts the issue through a sequence of stories on the progressive deterioration of the divine-human relationship in Genesis 2-11. In Genesis 4 he narrates the initial slaughter of one human being by another, and strikingly, it is described as fratricidal. Onslaught Against Innocence: Cain, Abel, and the Yahwist provides a close reading of J s story by using literary criticism and psychological criticism. It shows that the biblical author has more than an archaeological design. His characters--including God, Adam, Eve, Cain, and Abel, plus minor characters--are paradigmatic. They allow J to proceed with a fine analytical feel for the nature of evil as performed by homo as homini lupus. No imaginative mimesis of evil has ever been recounted with such an economy of means and such depth of psychological insight. Endorsements: Among Scripture interpreters, Andre LaCocque is a singular force because of his generative and restless mind that always seeks a new angle on the text. Here he continues his close reading of the early Genesis materials-this time the Cain and Abel narrative. LaCocque is an urbane intellectual who knows the world of myth and the critical claims of psychology. He is, at the same time, a most able and cunning reader of texts. The outcome of his interpretation is a vigorous fresh reading of Genesis 4 as a primal statement of failure and possibility in Western culture. This book is an offer of his rich, suggestive interpretation and an example of how to connect what is ancient and thick to contemporary life. -Walter Brueggemann, author of A Pathway of Interpretation In this remarkable book, Andre LaCocque uses insights from literature, art and psychology to probe the ancient story of Cain and Abel. He argues for a dialogic view of God, which respects human freedom, and he uncovers the roots of human violence in the quest for immortality. This is a first-rate, highly original, contribution to biblical theology. -John J. Collins, author of Does the Bible Justify Violence? The master of a truly extraordinary range of techniques of interpretation, Andre LaCocque is able to extract deep theological, psychological, and moral meanings out of a deceptively simple and often under-interpreted chapter of the Bible. This sophisticated yet accessible book will repay the attention of many types of readers-Jewish or Christian, religious or secular, with training in Biblical Studies or without. -Jon D. Levenson, author of Creation and the Persistence of Evil LaCocque presents a literary-critical analysis of the myth of Cain and Abel, exploring its anthropological, theological, and psychological dimensions. The resources he draws upon are classical exegetical studies, but additionally Ellul, Girard, Jung, Kant, Kierkegaard, Levinas, Nietzsche, Ricoeur, Sartre, and others. Students and scholars-and also the ordinary reader of the Bible-will greatly profit from this book, which I highly recommend to all. -Walter Vogels, author of Biblical Human Failures Author Biography: Andre LaCocque is Professor Emeritus of Old Testament at Chicago Theological Seminary. He is the author of The Trial of Innocence; The Feminine Unconventional; Romance, She Wrote; Esther Regina; and a commentary on Ruth. He is also the coauthor (with Paul Ricoeur) of Thinking Biblically: Exegetical and Hermeneutical Studies. Seller Inventory # AAV9781556357893

About this Item: Notre Dame, IN :. University of Notre Dame Press, 2002. Hardcover. Dustjacket. 215 pp.- In this lucid and probing study, Robert C. Miner argues that Giambattista Vico (1668-1744) was the architect of a subversive, genealogical approach to modernity. Miner documents the genesis of Vico's stance toward modernity in the first phase of his thought. Through close examination of his early writings, centering on Vico's critique of Descartes and his elaboration of the 'verum-factum' principle, Vico, Genealogist of Modernity reveals that Vico strives to acknowledge the technical advances of modernity while unmasking its origins in human pride. Miner's careful analysis of the often neglected Universal Law shows how Vico uses Augustine to articulate a new conception of natural law that mediates between the idealism of Plato and Aristotle and the realism of Tacitus and Machiavelli. Vico emerges as a penetrating reader of traditional philosophy and philology, as well as a radical pioneer of modern historical consciousness. Miner also traces important connections between Vico's magnum opus, the New Science, and his earlier writings, arguing that the New Science is not merely a work of scientific history. Miner contends that this work is more fundamentally a genealogy that enacts Nietzsche's desire to treat etymology and language as signposts for understanding the development of moral concepts. Miner shows how Vico's genealogy attempts to disclose hidden continuities between the culture of secular modernity and the pagan institutions of idolatry, divination, and sacrifice. Throughout this engaging work, Miner portrays Vico's genealogy as expressly Augustinian and Catholic, yet sufficiently complex to resist assimilation to reactionary anti-modernism. According to Miner, the goal of Vico's genealogy is to encompass the best of ancient and medieval traditions within an "encyclopedic" fusion of history and philosophy that is both mo Condition : very good.

Andre LaCocque writes like both, adding to the mix the perspectives of anthropology, linguistics, historiography, and literary-criticism. Rarely have I stepped into a volume of biblical scholarship with the sense of beginning a journey into undisclosed depths of a tale I had known for years, surrounded by a chorus of voices ranging from Aristotle to Ricoeur, from Freud to Voegelin, from the Yahwist ( the greatest story teller in the Hebrew Bible ) to Dostoevsky. The denouement leads to a penetrating, sobering, yet hopeful revisioning of the Cain and Abel saga as a story profoundly embedded within Judaeo-Christian cultural consciousness. -Wayne G.

No imaginative mimesis of evil has ever been recounted with such an economy of means and such depth of psychological insight. Among Scripture interpreters, Andre LaCocque is a singular force because of his generative and restless mind that always seeks a new angle on the text. Here he continues his close reading of the early Genesis materials-this time the Cain and Abel narrative. LaCocque is an urbane intellectual who knows the world of myth and the critical claims of psychology. He is, at the same time, a most able and cunning reader of texts. The outcome of his interpretation is a vigorous fresh reading of Genesis 4 as a primal statement of failure and possibility in Western culture. This book is an offer of his rich, suggestive interpretation and an example of how to connect what is ancient and thick to contemporary life. -Walter Brueggemann, author of A Pathway of Interpretation In this remarkable book, Andre LaCocque uses insights from literature, art and psychology to probe the ancient story of Cain and Abel. He argues for a dialogic view of God, which respects human freedom, and he uncovers the roots of human violence in the quest for immortality. This is a first-rate, highly original, contribution to biblical theology. -John J. Collins, author of Does the Bible Justify Violence? The master of a truly extraordinary range of techniques of interpretation, Andre LaCocque is able to extract deep theological, psychological, and moral meanings out of a deceptively simple and often under-interpreted chapter of the Bible. This sophisticated yet accessible book will repay the attention of many types of readers-Jewish or Christian, religious or secular, with training in Biblical Studies or without. -Jon D. Levenson, author of Creation and the Persistence of Evil LaCocque presents a literary-critical analysis of the myth of Cain and Abel, exploring its anthropological, theological, and psychological dimensions. The resources he draws upon are classical exegetical studies, but additionally Ellul, Girard, Jung, Kant, Kierkegaard, Levinas, Nietzsche, Ricoeur, Sartre, and others. Students and scholars-and also the ordinary reader of the Bible-will greatly profit from this book, which I highly recommend to all. -Walter Vogels, author of Biblical Human Failures It was said that William James wrote like a novelist and that his brother, Henry James, wrote like a psychologist. Andre LaCocque writes like both, adding to the mix the perspectives of anthropology, linguistics, historiography, and literary-criticism. Rarely have I stepped into a volume of biblical scholarship with the sense of beginning a journey into undisclosed depths of a tale I had known for years, surrounded by a chorus of voices ranging from Aristotle to Ricoeur, from Freud to Voegelin, from the Yahwist ( the greatest story teller in the Hebrew Bible ) to Dostoevsky. The denouement leads to a penetrating, sobering, yet hopeful revisioning of the Cain and Abel saga as a story profoundly embedded within Judaeo-Christian cultural consciousness. -Wayne G. Rollins, author of Soul and Psyche Andre LaCocque is Professor Emeritus of Old Te. Seller Inventory # APC9781498210997

About this Item: CASCADE BOOKS, 2008. Hardback. Condition: New. Language: English . This book usually ship within 10-15 business days and we will endeavor to dispatch orders quicker than this where possible. Brand New Book. Never before has the problem of evil been a more urgent subject for our reflection. The Yahwist confronts the issue through a sequence of stories on the progressive deterioration of the divine-human relationship in Genesis 2-11. In Genesis 4 he narrates the initial slaughter of one human being by another, and strikingly, it is described as fratricidal. Onslaught Against Innocence: Cain, Abel, and the Yahwist provides a close reading of J s story by using literary criticism and psychological criticism. It shows that the biblical author has more than an archaeological design. His characters--including God, Adam, Eve, Cain, and Abel, plus minor characters--are paradigmatic. They allow J to proceed with a fine analytical feel for the nature of evil as performed by homo as homini lupus.

About this Item: TROTTA,EDITORIAL, 2013. soft. Condition: New. Este volumen quinto de la Correspondencia de Friedrich Nietzsche abarca la época inmediatamente posterior a Así habló Zaratustra. Durante este período Nietzsche escribe Más allá del bien y del mal y Genealogía de la moral, y prepara las nuevas ediciones de El nacimiento de la tragedia, Humano, demasiado humano I y II, Aurora y La gaya ciencia, a las que añade importantes nuevos prólogos y, a la última, su quinta parte. En la correspondencia se superponen una serie de planos de gran interés para conocer tanto la génesis de estas obras como la situación vital en la que se forjaron. Uno de los aspectos dominantes lo constituye su intento de recuperar sus derechos sobre las obras publicadas hasta el momento. Además de complicados procesos legales y del propósito de sacarlas de manos antisemitas, este intento revela un interés especial por lograr una perspectiva general acerca de lo hecho hasta el momento, lo cual significa un cierto balance, un cierre y la apertura de un nuevo horizonte. Todo esto se entrelaza con el testimonio de una profunda soledad y la convicción de no ser reconocido, de escribir para una época futura. Las cartas dan muestra de una existencia errante y ermitaña, fustigada por un terrible estado de salud, al que sin embargo Nietzsche nunca sucumbe. Muy significativa resulta la relación con sus amigos, especialmente con Franz Overbeck y, en otro plano, con su protegido músico, Heinrich Köselitz. Por otro lado, destaca el trato afectivo con su madre, así como la conflictiva relación con su hermana Elisabeth. *** Nota: EL COSTE DE ENVÍO A CANARIAS ES 9.99 EUROS.

About this Item: University of Notre Dame Press, United States, 2002. Hardback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. In this lucid and probing study, Robert C. Miner argues that Giambattista Vico (1668-1744) was the architect of a subversive, genealogical approach to modernity. Miner documents the genesis of Vico s stance toward modernity in the first phase of his thought. Through close examination of his early writings, centering on Vico s critique of Descartes and his elaboration of the verum-factum principle, Vico, Genealogist of Modernity reveals that Vico strives to acknowledge the technical advances of modernity while unmasking its origins in human pride. Miner s careful analysis of the often neglected Universal Law shows how Vico uses Augustine to articulate a new conception of natural law that mediates between the idealism of Plato and Aristotle and the realism of Tacitus and Machiavelli. Vico emerges as a penetrating reader of traditional philosophy and philology, as well as a radical pioneer of modern historical consciousness. Miner also traces important connections between Vico s magnum opus, the New Science, and his earlier writings, arguing that the New Science is not merely a work of scientific history. Miner contends that this work is more fundamentally a genealogy that enacts Nietzsche s desire to treat etymology and language as signposts for understanding the development of moral concepts. Miner shows how Vico s genealogy attempts to disclose hidden continuities between the culture of secular modernity and the pagan institutions of idolatry, divination, and sacrifice. Throughout this engaging work, Miner portrays Vico s genealogy as expressly Augustinian and Catholic, yet sufficiently complex to resist assimilation to reactionary anti-modernism. According to Miner, the goal of Vico s genealogy is to encompass the best of ancient and medieval traditions within an encyclopedic fusion of history and philosophy that is both modern and Christian. Although Vico sees the age of man as moving toward the barbarism of reflection, his trust in divine providence saves him from nihilistic despair. Miner concludes that Vico s thought not only anticipates later efforts to infuse philosophy with historical consciousness, but also contains the seeds of a coherent alternative to the program of postmodern genealogy.

About this Item: De Gruyter, Germany, 2004. Hardback. Condition: New. Reprint 2012 ed.. Language: German . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.Paul Ree (1849-1901), an interdisciplinary traveller and admirer of the French moralistes, but also of Schopenhauer and Darwin, was for a time one of the closest friends of Lou Andreas-Salome and Friedrich Nietzsche. With his publications, Ree wanted to convert moral philosophy into moral science. This edition presents his books Psychologische Beobachtungen (Psychological Observations) (1875), Der Ursprung der moralischen Empfindungen (The Origin of Moral Sensations) (1877), Die Entstehung des Gewissens (The Genesis of Conscience) (1885) and Die Illusion der Willensfreiheit (The Illusion of Free Will) (1885). Together with a sketch of Ree s biography and the history of his works, which makes hitherto unknown documents accessible (such as the official record of Ree s fatal fall), Treiber reveals numerous sources for Ree s texts. In addition, he reproduces available contemporary reactions to the publications. Seller Inventory # APC9783110150315
