<B>Dostoevsky: The Scandal of Reason </B><I> </I>, BANERJEE, MARIA
1 Dostoevsky: The Scandal of Reason
1584200413 / 9781584200413 Paperback 
Praise for Dostoevsky: The Scandal of Reason
“In a series of compelling, enlightening, and challenging essays Professor Banerjee looks at ‘Dostoevsky’s novelistic world as an intellectually coherent, spiritually integral whole.’ Her examination culminates in a brilliant attempt to provide a reasonable, rational, and verbal indictment of reason itself—comprehending and complementing the message of love and gestures of Dostoevsky’s positive heroes. Students and scholars of Russian and comparative literatures will find here a compelling case for Dostoevsky’s embrace of Christianity as his rebuttal to rationalist philosophy.”
—Thomas R. Beyer, Professor of Russian, Middlebury College

“This work is based on Maria Nemcová Banerjee’s many years of teaching and reflecting on the meaning of Dostoevsky’s novelistic world and worldview. Her grasp of his religious imagination is firm and her interpretations are challenging. Professor Banerjee is a trustworthy guide in analyzing Notes from the Underground and The Brothers Karamazov.
—George A. Panichas, Editor of Modern Age: A Quarterly Review

“Maria Nemcová Banerjee situates her work in a tradition of Dostoevsky interpretation that features such names as Berdyaev, Ivanov, and Soloviev. It is therefore no surprise that her study Dostoevsky: The Scandal of Reason gives voice to a passionate and committed reading, filtered through a close attention to both text and context. Taking as her starting point Dostoevsky’s famed dictum that, were Christ in reality to be outside truth, he would choose Christ over truth, she shows how, for Dostoevsky himself, it is actually our modern, rationalistic conceptions of truth that come out worst. If Ivan Karamzov’s ‘rebellion’ has provided modern atheism with one of its most powerful weapons, a close reading of The Brothers Karamazov demonstrates not only that Ivan’s logic is flawed, but that he himself knows that it is. Clear, committed, and with the resources of extensive scholarship behind it, this is a book that gives further thrust to the current revival of interest in Dostoevsky’s contribution to modern religious thought. As such it will be welcomed by students and teachers and, indeed, by those who read Dostoevsky simply because he is a great writer from whom we all have much to learn.”
—George Pattison, Lady Margaret Professor of Divinity, Oxford University

“A fascinating meditation, distilled from a lifetime’s study of Dostoevsky. With exquisite tact Maria Banerjee traces the workings of Dostoevsky’s art—and of his thought within and through the art—as she navigates the depths of the masterpieces that initiate and conclude his major period, Notes from Underground and The Brothers Karamazov, tracing the dialectic of reason and faith that is the hallmark of his contribution to the novel and to world culture.”
—Donald Fanger, Harry Levin Professor of Literature, Emeritus, Harvard University

<B>Spirit of the Mountain </B><I> </I>, DAVIDOW, SHELLEY
2 Spirit of the Mountain
0880107103 / 9780880107105 
The hot South-African summer is getting to Emily. She escapes to her Uncle Tim's farm where she meets green-eyed Joey and can relax. But Emily has an eating disorder, and each day she slips further away from those around her. Only Anna can help her-Anna the healer, the herbalist, who possesses the wisdom of ancient customs and traditions. Anna offers Emily knowledge of a world she could scarcely imagine.

"A fine, strong, delicate story of a girl in mortal danger, who is saved because she brings herself to ask help from powers she does not understand. Emily lives in South Africa, but the voice in her diary is utterly recognizable half the world away - funny and agonizingly true." - Ursula K. LeGuin, author of The Earthsea Cycle.
"Sometimes you find secrets where you least expect them. But what can a baby know, or an old man on a mountain? Can Emily learn to listen in time? Shelley Davidow's Spirit of the Mountain will take you on a journey you won't forget." - Bette Lunch Husted, author of Above the Clearwater.

Shelley Davidow is well known to Steiner/Waldorf teachers and parents as the author of books such as The Secret Pet, The Secret Door and the Early readers series Sam Cat and Nat Rat. She cureently teaches in the high school at Noosa Pengari School. Her most recent book is Raising Stress-Proof Kids (see our stock item 13125).
