Reichman-Israelsown, Raymond
In search of the panacea to every ill, The Mind of God takes us on a journey towards the reduction of all questions, and all answers, to one. The universal common denominator - the one without a second, the Kingdom of God - the finding of which will 'add all else' unto us. The author tackles the 'impossible' task of describing the infinite with finite tools - words. He deals with the dilemma of transcending the limitation of words in an effort at expressing the inexpressible, the ineffable, the silence. Within transcendental meditation the word is rendered unnecessary. But words are needed to describe the ladder to reach the transcendent. The book seeks to reconcile the paradox of intellectual and physical work and effortless intuitive revelation and mystical creative realisation. The deepest and most meaningful of expressions do not lie in words, but in the pregnant omniscient infinity between words. The paradox of communication at this level is the necessity to use words to describe the 'wordless.' Exploring reality, creation and the fall of man, man emerges as an expression of God. The Path is the sum of all paths. All religions or spiritual paths lead us Home to Self-Realisation.182 pp

Calvet, Laouis-Hean
This is a biography of Roland Barthes - one of the most important European intellectuals of the post-war years. In a lively account of Barthes's life and work, Calvet follows the brilliant semiotician from his provincial origins to his sudden death in 1980. He describes Barthes's move to Paris as a child, where he lived with his mother in modest surroundings and constant hardship. He argues that the experience of having his academic prospects ruined by his illness at an early age remained a thorn in Barthes's flesh: until the end of his life his relationship with the academic world was never free of bitterness, even resentment. Calvet retraces his years in Paris, Bucharest and Alexandria after the war. During this period Barthes gained access to intellectual circles and experienced his decisive encounter with modern linguistics, particularly with "semiotics", which he helped to establish as a discipline through his work on everyday myths, fashion and literature. Calvet discusses the whole range of Barthes's work as a critic and literary theorist, and demonstrates his tremendous importance and influence in the second half of the 20th century. This book provides a detailed portrait of Barthes's life, and a vivid reconstruction of the intellectual culture of post-war France. It should be of interest to students and researchers in literature, cultural studies, French studies, and anyone interested in the life and work of Roland Barthes. 291pp. N.B. Previous owners inscription to half title page.
