In Alone in the World? J. Wentzel van Huyssteen develops further his earlier proposal for interdisciplinary dialogue set out in The Shaping of Rationality, and applies this methodology to the uncharted waters between theological anthropology and paleoanthropology. First delivered as the 2004 Gifford Lectures at the University of Edinburgh van Huyssteen here argues that scientific notions of human uniqueness may actually help us to ground theological notions of human distinctiveness in flesh-and-blood, real-life, embodied experiences and protect theological reflection from abstractions when trying to rethink the image of God. Van Huyssteen focuses on the interdisciplinary problem of human origins and human distinctiveness and finds a unique access point to the origin of the remarkable human mind in the spectacular prehistoric cave paintings of Western Europe. Fifteen of the most important paintings are reproduced in this book, and van Huyssteen explores the theological relevance and deeper religious meaning of a number of them. Connecting two widely separated fields through careful interdisciplinary reflection, Alone in the World? will encourage sustained investigation into the question of human uniqueness.

No One Gardens Alone tells for the first time the story of Elizabeth Lawrence (1904-1985). Like classic biographies of Emily Dickinson and Edna St. Vincent Millay, this fascinating book reveals Lawrence in all her complexity and establishes her, at last, as one of the premier gardeners and gardening writers of the twentieth century. "In this first biography of the renowned gardening writer Elizabeth Lawrence, Emily Herring Wilson reminds us that even quiet lives hold unsuspected passions. Written with graceful clarity, sensitivity, and empathy, this life is a perennial."--Linda H. Davis, author of Onward and Upward: A Biography of Katharine S. White Elizabeth Lawrence (1904-1985) lived a singular, often contradictory life. She was a traditional southerner; a successful, independent garden writer with her own newspaper column and numerous books to her credit; a dutiful daughter who cared for her elders and lived with her mother; a landscape architect; a passionate poet; a friend of literary figures like Eudora Welty and Joseph Mitchell; and a very private woman whose recently discovered letters illuminate aspects of her mystery. Lawrence earned many fans during her lifetime and gained even more after her death with the reissue of many of her classic books. When Emily Herring Wilson edited a collection of letters between Lawrence and famed New Yorker editor Katharine S. White in Two Gardeners, she found legions of readers who were eager to know more about the legendary Lawrence. Now, one hundred years after her birth, No One Gardens Alone tells for the first time the story of this fascinating woman. Like classic biographies of literary figures such as Emily Dickinson and Edna St. Vincent Millay, this book reveals Lawrence in all her complexity and establishes her, at last, as one of the premier gardeners and garden writers of the twentieth century.
In writing this biography of Theodor Herzl, Chouraqui has filled a vital need: he shows Herzl the visionary in the context of turn-of-the-century Europe. The book, presented in novel form, is largely based on historical sources. The result is a compassionate, human account of how the idea of a Jewish state was born, and of Herzl's struggle to make his dream become reality. Andre Chouraqui is an Israeli public figure and author whose works have been translated into several languages. He served as personal adviser to Prime Minister David Ben Gurion and was deputy mayor of Jerusalem from 1965 to 1969.

Author: Gwyn Thomas Publisher: Parthian Books ISBN: 1910409243 Category : Fiction Languages : en Pages : 184
The Alone to the Alone unites Gwyn Thomas's lyrical and philosophical flights of narrative in a satire whose savagery is only relieved by irrepressible laughter. It is Gwyn Thomas most shaped work: the underlying meaning of South Wales history is not so much documented as laid bare for universal dissection and dissemination. The novel, with its distinctive plural narration, is a choric commentary on human illusion and knowledge, on power and its attendant deprivation, on dreams and their destruction.

Kayaking Alone is a narrative of man and nature, one-on-one, but also of man and nature writ large. In the stories of the river guides and rangers, biologists and ranchers, American Indians and dam workers he meets along the way, the rich and complicated life of the river emerges in a striking, often painfully clear panorama. Through his journey, the ecology, history, and politics of Pacific salmon unfold in fascinating detail, and with this firsthand knowledge and experience the reader gains a new and personal sense of the nature that unites and divides us.
