He is reckless, bold, dangerous . . . Men envy him, women desire him . . . And one woman wants her revenge. Claire Ashcroft has good reason to despise Viscount Grayson Sutherland. A wildly unpredictable man with a frightening reputation, Sutherland is responsible for a death that deeply pains her. She'd kill him if she could. Instead, she'll employ her feminine wiles to make him pay. And once he's deeply, irreversibly in love with her, she'll shatter his vulnerable heart. Her scheme works perfectly . . . too perfectly.

Michael Devitt is a distinguished philosopher of language. In this new book he takes up issues in semantics. Three important questions lie at the core of this book: What are the main objectives of semantics? Why are they worthwhile? How should we accomplish them? Devitt answers these "methodological" questions naturalistically and explores what semantic program arises from the answers. The approach is anti-Cartesian, rejecting the idea that linguistic or conceptual competence yields any privileged access to meanings. Devitt argues for a truth-referential localism and in the process rejects direct-reference, two-factor, and verificationist theories. The book concludes by arguing against revisionism, eliminativism, and the idea that we should ascribe narrow meanings to explain behavior.

Coming to Our Senses positions affect, or feeling, as our new cultural compass, ordering the parameters and possibilities of what can be known. From Facebook "likes" to Coca-Cola "loves," from "emotional intelligence" in business to "emotional contagion" in social media, affect has displaced reason as the primary catalyst of global culture. Through examples of feeling in the books, film, music, advertising, cultural criticism, and political discourse of the United States and Latin America, Reber shows how affect encourages the public to "reason" on the strength of sentiment alone. Well-being, represented by happiness and health, and ill-being, embodied by unhappiness and disease, form the two poles of our social judgment, whether in affirmation or critique. We must then reenvision contemporary politics as operating at the level of the feeling body, so we can better understand the physiological and epistemological conditions affirming our cultural status quo and contestatory strategies for emancipation.

An ambitious and provocative analysis of the relationship between culture, mind, and body in the history of Western society, Morris Berman s influential classic "Coming to our Senses" has been engrossing audiences with its carefully-researched and thoughtful exploration of somatic experience for decades. Finally back in print for a new generation of readers, Berman s treatise on the West s historic denial of physicality is relevant as ever in a society increasingly plagued by addiction, depression, and distraction. Berman deftly weaves threads of history, philosophy, and psychoanalysis into an elegant and accessible argument about the ways our physical experience of the world relates the culture in which we exist. To make his case, Berman draws on studies of infant behavior with mirrors; analyzes symbolic expressions of human-animal relationships ranging from cave-wall etchings to Disney cartoons; investigates esoteric breathing techniques and occult rituals; and examines the nature of creativity. Berman also illuminates Christianity s origins in early Jewish meditation techniques, explains how the notion of romantic love evolved out of medieval Christian heresy, how modern science grew out of Renaissance mysticism, and how Nazism was the most recent episode in a recurring cycle of orthodoxy and heresy. A demanding and radical work of history, social criticism, and philosophy, "Coming to our Senses" is a beautifully-written and vastly important book."

In this fascinating book cognitive scientist Viki McCabe argues that the catastrophes we now face - economic recessions, ecological devastation, and political paralysis - originate in our ignoring the world we perceive and acting on the theories we conceive. Using cutting-edge research and compelling true stories - the Wall Street banking fiasco, the submerging of New Orleans, and the escalation of global temperatures, McCabe argues that these problems originate in our relying on the wrong source for our information - the archives within our heads with their opinions and biases, instead of our subliminal perceptions of what is happening on the ground. McCabe shows that while our mind's eye" "sees" a world made of separate, nameable parts, the earth actually operates as a coalition of complex working systems (from cells to cities to economies). Such systems cannot be understood in words, but require fractal-like configurations that our perceptual systems have evolved to parse and that reflect each system's structure, characteristics, and functions. Thus, we comprehend systems as disparate as neural networks, river deltas, and economies not from their verbal descriptions, but by perceiving their branching structure. We recognize others as they walk from the figure eight that oscillates around their belly buttons. Form not only follows function, it doubles as information. McCabe also documents how using this information saved the USS Missouri, a kidnapped child, and victims of the Asian tsunami. Thus, she counsels us to put our mentally manufactured theories aside and focus on our perceptions so that we can reconnect to reality, make more informed decisions, block hostile mental takeovers, and come back to our senses."

Der tibetische Meditationsmeister Sogyal Rinpoche führt uns an eine Lebenspraxis heran, durch die der Tod seinen Schrecken verliert und der Alltag an Freude gewinnt. Seine zeitgemäße Auslegung der buddhistischen Lehren des berühmten »Tibetischen Totenbuchs« hat weltweit einen maßgeblichen Rang erlangt. Sie ist zu einer unentbehrlichen Hilfe in der Krankenbetreuung und Sterbebegleitung geworden. Doch jeder Mensch kann durch dieses Buch nicht nur »die Kunst zu sterben«, sondern auch die »zu leben« lernen. Beide sind nach tibetischer Auffassung nur die zwei Seiten einer Medaille.

Die sechzehnjährige Margo ist am Stark River aufgewachsen und hat zu Fluss und Natur ein sehr viel innigeres Verhältnis als zu den Menschen. Sie spricht wenig bis gar nicht, schwimmt wie ein Fisch und ist eine erstklassige Schützin. Zu ihrem Pech ist sie ungewöhnlich hübsch, und irgendwann geraten die Dinge deshalb außer Kontrolle. Margo flieht und vertraut sich dem Fluss an. Mit ihrem Ruderboot und einem geklauten Gewehr beginnt sie ein Vagabundenleben zu Wasser .... Ein großartiger Roman, in dem die moderne Schwester von Huckleberry Finn versucht, ihren Platz in einer Welt zu finden, auf die niemand sie vorbereitet hat. Nach einem von der Kritik schon hoch gelobten, für den National Book Award nominierten Band Kurzgeschichten gelang Bonnie Jo Campbell mit diesem Roman der literarische Durchbruch. „Bonnie Jo Campbells Menschen wirken so lebendig, als beobachte man sie durch ein offenes Fenster.“ Joyce Carol Oates
