For the Love of Literature A Celebration of Language and Imagination

By: BARNES, C.MACKAYE-, ETC., GERWIN, D., ET AL

Price: $35.95

Publisher: United States, Anthroposophic Press Inc: 1996

Seller ID: 892

ISBN: 0880104163


Illustrations A largely unnoticed component of the current educational, social, and even ecological, crisis lies hidden in the decline in the value accorded to what we rightly call the "humanities". The study of the living words of great literature -- Homer, Dante, Chaucer, Shakespeare, the Romantic poets, the Russian novelists -- no longer forms the basis of the curriculum of the human soul. Marginalized, politicized, and devalued, the imagination is disparaged and young people are fed instead a monotonous diet of information, scientism, and technological know-how. These things ...

Conversation A New Theory of Language

By: FLYGT, CARL H., BELL, MADISON SMARTT

Price: $50.00

Publisher: United Kingdom, Lindisfarne Books: 2006

Seller ID: 10653

ISBN: 1584200383


illustrations This is a groundbreaking study which takes the phenomenon of human conversation and analyses it to understand its relationship with social organisation and cultural background, based on the concepts of Rudolf Steiner's threefold social order. The threefold social order was Rudolf Steiner’s conception of an archetypal social organization that would utilize the norms of universal spiritual initiation, individual freedom, and the fundamental social law. A social science purporting to encompass these norms has yet to arise, but with Carl H. Flygt’s book... View more info

Michael Howard reminds us that polarization is ubiquitous in our time. In the realm of language, this polarization comes to expression through synonyms and antonyms. But the world is not as black-and-white as it appears. Fortunately, language is rich in words that bridge and mediate between polar extremes. However, these words are not as prominent in our speaking and thinking as synonyms and antonyms, and for this reason, we do not apply them in our practical affairs as fully as we might. By its very title this booklet proposes 'Mesonym' as the name for ‘words in the middle, words that... View more info
