Das Vermächtnis eines großartigen Autors und Menschenkenners. Oliver Sacks hat mit seinen neurologischen Fallgeschichten Millionen Leser weltweit erreicht und ihr Denken verändert: Was auf den ersten Blick als krank oder abweichend erscheint, ermöglicht oft besondere Fähigkeiten der Wahrnehmung und des Fühlens. Und das sogenannte Normale ist meist fragwürdiger, als wir es gern wahrhaben wollen. Am 30. August 2015 starb Oliver Sacks in New York. In seinen letzten Lebensmonaten hat er eine Reihe von Aufsätzen geschrieben und veröffentlicht, in denen er über das Altern, über seine Krankheit, über den nahenden Tod nachdenkt - und in denen er seine Dankbarkeit ausdrückt für alles, was er in 82 Jahren erleben durfte. Es sind anrührende, meditative Texte über die grundlegenden Fragen von Leben und Tod, Glauben und Wissen. Auch über seine jüdische Herkunft und sein Verhältnis zur Religion legt Oliver Sacks Zeugnis ab. Und er beschreibt, warum die exakten Naturwissenschaften, vor allem das Periodensystem der chemischen Elemente, ihn zeitlebens fasziniert und begeistert haben. Illustriert mit Fotos von Oliver Sacks’ Lebensgefährten Bill Hayes.

Gratitude is a choice. If we fail to chose it, by default we choose ingratitude. And once allowed into the heart, ingratitude does not come by itself but with a lot of other seedy companions that only succeed in stealing joy. To not choose gratitude - daily and deliberately - is more costly than we usually realize. And when we do choose a lifestyle of heartfelt, humble gratitude, we are mindful of the benefits received from our gracious Savior and those He has placed around us. By intentionally thanking God and others, bitterness and entitlement are replaced with joy and the humble realization of just how undeserving we really are. Derived from a popular Revive Our Hearts radio series, Choosing Gratitude: Your Journey to Joy challenges and equips the reader to live a life of intention. A life based on thankfulness - for the freedom Christ has provided and for the blessings of others. As a bonus, a 30-day plan of journaling, prayer and activities to help the reader on her path to joy is included.

Melanie Klein's writings, particularly on infant development and psychosis, have been crucial both to theoretical work and to clinical practice. Envy and Gratitude collects her writings from 1946 until her death in 1960, including two papers published posthumously. Klein's major paper, 'Notes on Some Schizoid Mechanisms', introduces the concept of the paranoid-schizoid position, in which the infant ego splits, projects and introjects its objects - most particularly the mother - during the first few months of life. 'Envy and Gratitude' her last major work, introduces her theory of primary envy.

Gratitude, like other positive emotions, has inspired many theological and philosophical writings, but it has inspired very little vigorous, empirical research. In an effort to remedy this oversight, this volume brings together prominent scientists from various disciplines to examine what has become known as the most-neglected emotion. The volume begins with the historical, philosophical, and theoretical foundations of gratitude, then presents the current research perspectives from social, personality, and developmental psychology, as well as from primatology, anthropology, and biology. The volume also includes a comprehensive, annotated bibliography of research on gratitude. This work contributes a great deal to the growing positive psychology initiative and to the scientific investigation of positive human emotions. It will be an invaluable resource for researchers and students in social, personality, and developmental, clinical, and health psychology, as well as to sociologists and cultural anthropologists.

In this century, the topic of gratitude has received little more than passing attention, yet, in earlier periods of Anglo-American moral philosophy, ingratitude was treated as a serious vice. Terrance McConnell provides the first contemporary philosophical exploration of the phenomenon of gratitude. Arguing that it is both an obligation and a moral sentiment, he discusses ways in which gratitude seems to conflict with other important theses in ethical theory. He offers examples from several contexts, including political and filial obligations and relations between friends and casual acquaintances. McConnell describes conditions that generate debts of gratitude, the requirements of such debts, and the relationship between moral requirements and emotions. He discusses the question of whether gratitude toward someone interferes with the impartiality that is morally required in other situations. He also shows how various moral traditions--utilitarianism, Kantianism, and the ethics of virtue--can account for some aspects of the morality of gratitude, but not all. Author note: Terrance McConnell is Professor of Philosophy at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro.
