The Book on the Taboo against Knowing Who You are
16,99 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

In The Book, Alan Watts provides us with a much-needed answer to the problem of personal identity, distilling and adapting the Hindu philosophy of Vedanta. At the root of human conflict is our fundamental misunderstanding of who we are. The illusion that we are isolated beings, unconnected to the rest of the universe, has led us to view the "outside" world with hostility, and has fueled our misuse of technology and our violent and hostile subjugation of the natural world. To help us understand that the self is in fact the root and ground of the universe, Watts has crafted a revelatory primer on what it means to be human-and a mind-opening manual of initiation into the central mystery of existence.

In this hour, Annie Gauger has edited a brand new annotated version of the classic novel "The Wind in the Willows" by Kenneth Graham. She tells Steve Paulson that the characters reflect various aspects of Grahame's personality and that the book began as a series of tales exchanged between Grahame and his son. And we hear some of Alan Bennett's adaptation of the story for the BBC. Next, Nina Paley has made a film using animation, Indonesian shadow puppets, and a '20s-era jazz singer to retell the story from the Ramayana of the marriage of the Hindu god Rama and his wife, Sita. The film is called Sita Sings the Blues. Paley tells Jim Fleming what inspired her. Then, Musharraf Ali Farooqi is the translator of The Adventures of Amir Hamza and Hoshruba. He tells Anne Strainchamps about these ancient Indian tales of sorcerers and wizards, originally written in Urdu. After that, Maria Tatar is the author of Enchanted Hunters: The Power of Stories in Childhood. She talks with Steve Paulson about what makes fairy tales so compelling to children. And we hear a bit of Christopher Walken's version of Goodnight Moon from The Simpsons. Finally, Kurt Schwitters - he was a celebrated modern artist in Europe in the 20s and 30s who both painted and wrote satirical, surrealist fantasies. His career was cut short by the Nazis. Now, a collection of his tales, called Lucky Hans has been translated and edited by Jack Zipes. Zipes, an expert on fairy tales, tells Anne Strainchamps about Schwitters' life and work.

Imagine setting off on a 12-day trek through the Himalayan wilderness to the foot of Mount Everest, experiencing the world's most startling landscapes and vibrant Sherpa culture and struggling to catch your breath at nearly 18,000 feet above sea level - all without leaving your favorite listening chair.Doofus Dad Does Everest Base Camp brings that scenario to life.In April 2018, Tennessee writer Mark E. Johnson embarked on an epic, grueling, and often hilarious adventure - the 80-mile trek from Lukla, Nepal, to Mount Everest Base Camp - after launching an improbable trekking company a year earlier in the flatlands of the southeastern United States. This was Johnson's first excursion out of the continental US, and this journey into the exotic country of Nepal was indeed a trial by fire (and ice). Hike alongside "Doofus Dad" on each part of this bucket list quest, from the starting point of Nashville, Tennessee, through a mind-numbing 23 hours of air travel into the suicidal traffic of Kathmandu, and on every day of the trek with equal parts lush detail and sly humor. Experience Kathmandu’s Hindu and Buddhist temples, the infamous Yeti's Scalp of the Khumjung Monastery, a hysterical salsa dance lesson at 14,000 feet, and a crazy helicopter rescue. If you're considering this adventure for yourself, then this book is an invaluable resource and contains the Everest Base Camp itinerary, daily trek statistics, gear lists, and training suggestions. The foreword is provided by mountaineering legend and Everest blogger, Alan Arnette, called "one of the world's most respected chroniclers of Everest" by Outside Magazine. “This book is a must-have for the bookshelf of yesterday's, today's and tomorrow's traveler,” says Arnette.The audiobook is read by Johnson and even includes sound effects from the trek itself! Johnson is a longtime freelancer and blog writer, best known for his Dave Barry-esque stories about paren 1.

THE BOOK In The Book, Alan Watts provides us with a much-needed answer to the problem of personal identity, distilling and adapting the Hindu philosophy of Vedanta. At the root of human conflict is our fundamental misunderstanding of who we are. The illusion that we are isolated beings, unconnected to the rest of the universe, has led us to view the “outside” world with hostility, and has fueled our misuse of technology and our violent and hostile subjugation of the natural world. To help us understand that the self is in fact the root and ground of the universe, Watts has crafted a revelatory primer on what it means to be human—and a mind-opening manual of initiation into the central mystery of existence. About author(s) Alan W. Watts, who held both a master’s degree in theology and a doctorate of divinity, is best remembered as an interpreter of Zen Buddhism in particular, and of Indian and Chinese philosophy in general. Standing apart, however, from sectarian membership, he has earned the reputation of being one of the most original and “unrutted” philosophers of the twentieth century. Watts was the author of some twenty books on the philosophy and psychology of religion that have been published in many languages throughout the world, including the bestselling The Way of Zen. An avid lecturer, Watts appeared regularly on the radio and hosted the popular television series, Eastern Wisdom and Modern Life, in the 1960s. He died in 1973.

Dolphin
13,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

From Flipper to SeaWorld, dolphins have long captured our hearts. We love these friendly, intelligent mammals, and they seem to return our feelings-they enjoy interacting with swimmers and have been known to encircle people under attack by sharks. Despite our familiarity with dolphins, though, we remain ill-informed about how they evolved, how they function, and how they have interacted with humans for millennia. Dolphin dives into the dolphin's zoology, as well as its social and cultural history, to offer a comprehensive view of these delightful creatures. Drawing on his years of experience working with and studying dolphins, Alan Rauch explores their propensity to live in pods and their ability to communicate through a variety of clicks, whistles, and other vocalizations. He examines their long relationship with humans, describing how they became the emblem of safe travel and charity, that the ancient Greeks featured them on coins, and that Hindu mythology associated them with Ganga, a river deity. As the rise in popularity of dolphinaria during the 1960s allowed the public access to dolphins, they became central characters in films like The Day of the Dolphin and Johnny Mnemonic and outsmarted humans in The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. Packed with images and thoughtful insights, Dolphin is a revealing look at one of our favorite sea creatures.
