Life coach and bestselling author Annemarie Postma shows us that self-development and living a spiritual life aren't as complicated as we tend to think. In her own no-nonsense style, always laced with her sharp sense of humour, she makes spirituality accessible to a wider audience; she helps us to understand that a spiritual lifestyle has nothing to do with escapism or floating on some mystical cloud, but that true spirituality is deeply rooted in our own humanity with both feet firmly planted on the ground. Annemarie explains that spiritual living is about changing your outlook - to allow yourself to embrace and fully experience life as it is. It is not about accomplishing things, more improving on, doing everything 'right' or attempting to live as a saint. We are not on this Earth to become spiritual; we are spiritual beings already and our purpose is to become well-rounded and complete human beings. With simple exercises and affirmations, she shows us a simple and practical way to live a genuinely spiritual and fulfilling life. 'Close your eyes in a quiet moment, open the book to any page. The chances are that the paragraph you find, is exactly about what you need to know at that very moment or what you needed to be reminded of.'

First published in 1978, Silences single-handedly revolutionized the literary canon. In this classic work, now back in print, Olsen broke open the study of literature and discovered a lost continentthe writing of women and working-class people. From the excavated testimony of authors letters and diaries we learn the many ways the creative spirit, especially in those disadvantaged by gender, class and race, can be silenced. Olsen recounts the torments of Melville, the crushing weight of criticism on Thomas Hardy, the shame that brought Willa Cather to a dead halt, and struggles of Virginia Woolf, Olsens heroine and greatest exemplar of a writer who confronted the forces that would silence her. This 25th-anniversary edition includes Olsens now infamous reading lists of forgotten authors and a new introduction and author preface.

Here is a book of easy reading poetry that is meant for everyone's pleasure especially someone who likes a good rhyme. More importantly it has a bonus of having social stories in the margins of all the pages of poetry to help a developmentally challenged child understand what is in the text of the poem. Diane has found that social stories are very helpful in teaching her autistic child to understand concepts he may not otherwise be able to understand. These pictures and corresponding text would be a good way to pass on social skills to people like her child. She has found that social skills are at the very root and basis of a meaningful life and help enrich the learning experience. This has helped her child to understand difficult concepts and has worked well in conjunction with the medicine he takes from a well recognized physician. She wants to make as much of this new language as she can. This is her first book and hopefully the first of many.

Listening to Noise and Silence engages with the emerging practice of sound art and the concurrent development of a discourse and theory of sound. In this original and challenging work, Salomé Voegelin immerses the reader in concepts of listening to sound artwork and the everyday acoustic environment, establishing an aesthetics and philosophy of sound and promoting the notion of a sonic sensibility. A multitude of sound works are discussed, by lesser known contemporary artists and composers (for example Curgenven, Gasson and Federer), historical figures in the field (Artaud, Feldman and Cage), and that of contemporary canonic artists such as Janet Cardiff, Bill Fontana, Bernard Parmegiani, and Merzbow. Informed by the ideas of Adorno, Merleau-Ponty and others, the book aims to come to a critique of sound art from its soundings rather than in relation to abstracted themes and pre-existing categories. Listening to Noise and Silence broadens the discussion surrounding sound art and opens up the field for others to follow.

Borrowing from the ancient rabbinic use of midrash as a means of opening Scripture to students, James Lowry has chosen six texts from among those in which he believes Mark deliberately left silences. The author is convinced Mark hoped his readers would be encouraged to raise a variety of possibilities as to what the evangelist left unsaid. Beginning with Mark choosing not to name the temptations of Jesus (Mark 1:12-13) and concluding with Mark choosing to conclude his narrative with the women leaving the tomb of Jesus in stunned silence (Mark 16:8), Lowry spins short stories that suggest several alternative ideas as to how the biblical narrative might have played. In half of the tales, Lowry enters the text and adds fictitious material to Mark's narrative. In the other half, his stories are set in the small textile town of Great Falls, South Carolina, where the author grew up in the 1950s. The hope is these stories will encourage readers of Mark and groups of his readers to raise other possibilities.

Kevin M. Cahill reclaims one of Ludwig Wittgenstein's most passionately pursued endeavors: to reawaken a sense of wonder around human life and language and its mysterious place in the world. Following the philosopher's spiritual and cultural criticism and tying it more tightly to the overall evolution of his thought, Cahill frames an original interpretation of Wittgenstein's engagement with Western metaphysics and modernity, better contextualizing the force of his work. Cahill synthesizes several approaches to Wittgenstein's life and thought. He stresses the nontheoretical aspirations of the philosopher's early and later writings, combining key elements from the so-called resolute readings of the Tractatus with the "therapeutic" readings of Philosophical Investigations. Cahill shows how continuity in Wittgenstein's cultural and spiritual concerns informed if not guided his work between these texts, and in his reading of the Tractatus, Cahill identifies surprising affinities with Martin Heidegger's Being and Time—a text rarely associated with Wittgenstein's early formulations. In his effort to recapture wonder, Wittgenstein both avoided and undermined traditional philosophy's reliance on theory. As Cahill relates the steps of this bold endeavor, he forms his own innovative, analytical methods, joining historicist and contextualist approaches to text-based, immanent readings. The result is an original, sustained examination of Wittgenstein's thought.

'Jean-Jacques Lecercle's remarkable Philosophy of Nonsense offers a sustained and important account of an area that is usually hastily dismissed. Using the resources of contemporary philosophy - notably Deleuze and Lyotard - he manages to bring out the importance of nonsense' - Andrew Benjamin, University of Warwick Why are we, and in particular why are philosophers and linguists, so fascinated with nonsense? Why do Lewis Carroll and Edward Lear appear in so many otherwise dull and dry academic books? This amusing, yet rigorous new book by Jean-Jacques Lecercle shows how the genre of nonsense was constructed and why it has proved so enduring and enlightening for linguistics and philosophy.
