Moments in History II is similar in format to Moments in History, but each book stands alone in that one does not have to read one in order to enjoy the other. They each contain chapters that examine a historical event and then look at the life of the individual at the center of that event. These people are sometimes famous, sometimes obscure, sometimes heroic, and sometimes scoundrels--but they are always interesting.

Mystical Moments and Unitive Thinking
Language: en
Pages: 188
Authors: Dan Merkur
Categories: Religion
Type: BOOK - Published: 1999-02-11 - Publisher: SUNY Press

Merkur proposes an alternative to the traditional psychoanalytic explanation of mystical experiences as regression to the solipsism of earliest infancy. He does this by viewing unitive thinking as a line of cognitive development, and mystical moments as creative inspirations on unitive topics. Utilizing classical self-reports by Christian, Jewish, and Muslim mystics, Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras, and modern Western peak experiences, Merkur argues that experiences of mystical union are manifestations of a broader category of psychological processes that manifest in scientific and moral thought, as well as in mysticism. Unconscious as well as conscious, unitive thinking is sometimes realistic and sometimes fantastic, in patterns that are consistent with cognitive development in general. Mystical moments of unitive thinking may be considered moments of creative inspiration that happen to make use of unitive ideas. Building on the psychoanalytic object-relations theory that the self is always in relationship with an object, Merkur argues that the solipsism of some varieties of mystical union always implies unconscious ideas of a love object who is transcendent.
Flower of the Desert
Language: en
Pages: 448
Authors: Antonio Negri
Categories: Philosophy
Type: BOOK - Published: 2015-10-26 - Publisher: SUNY Press

A profound meditation on Leopardi’s art and thought as well as a reframing and reassertion of Negri’s own philosophical and political project of liberation. Antonio Negri, one of Italy’s most influential and controversial contemporary philosophers, offers in this book a radical new interpretation of the nineteenth-century Italian poet Giacomo Leopardi. For Negri, Leopardi is not the bitter, idealistic individualist of conventional literary history, but rather a profoundly materialist thinker who sees human solidarity as the only possible solution to the catastrophes of history and politics. Negri traces Leopardi’s resistance to the transcendental idealism of Kant and Hegel, with its emphasis on reason’s power to resolve real antagonisms into abstract syntheses, and his gradual development of a sophisticated poetic materialism focused on the constructive power of the imagination and its “true illusions.” Like Nietzsche (who admired him), Leopardi provides an alternative to modernity within modernity, expressing a force of rupture and recomposition—a uniquely Italian one—that is as relevant now as it was in the nineteenth century, and which connects to the theory of Empire as the political constitution of the present that Negri has elaborated in collaboration with Michael Hardt.

A collection of the introductory lectures Hegel delivered on the three topics between 1818 and 1831, which did much to establish his reputation as Germany's greatest philosopher of the time. He revised them over the years, so the final products represent his mature views of the three activities of the spirit, and are more comprehensible than works published during his lifetime. A new introduction and analytical table of contents are included, and Hegel's section headings restored. No bibliography. Paper edition (unseen), $12.95.
