Said, Edward W.
A 'beginning,' especially as embodied in much modern thought, is its own method, Edward Said argues in this classic treatise on the role of the intellectual and the goal of criticism. Distinguishing between 'origin', which is divine, mythical, and privileged, and 'beginning,' which is secular and humanly produced, Said traces the ramifications and diverse understandings of the concept of beginning through history. A beginning is a first step in the intentional production of meaning and the production of difference from preexisting traditions. It authorizes subsequent texts - it both enables them and limits what is acceptable. Drawing on the insights of Vico, Valery, Nietzsche, Saussure, Levi-Strauss, Husserl, and Foucault, Said recognizes the novel as the major attempt in Western literary culture to give beginnings an authorizing function in experience, art, and knowledge.Scholarship should see itself as a beginning - as a uniting of theory and practice. Said's insistence on a criticism that is humane and socially responsible is what makes "Beginnings" a book about much more than writing: it is about imagination and action as well as the constraints on freedom and invention that come from human intention and the method of its fulfillment. 414pp. N.B.

Merryman, John Henry and Elsen,Albert E.
Although the 1990s witnessed more than a few episodes of shocking cultural destruction, this text notes a great surge in worldwide consciousness of the unique, irreplaceable character of art, and a significant rollback of the cultural prejudices that have been ebbing away since the 1954 Hague Convention declared all art works, whatever their origin, to be "the cultural heritage of mankind." Whether you need to understand a concept such as who owns the past, or something as mundane as whether a museum can sell part of its collection in order to fix the roof, this book aims to set you on the right course. It combines scholarship with a humanistic approach, recognising that law and art each (in the words of Paul Freund) "impose a measure of order on the disorder of experience without stifling the underlying diversity, spontaneity, and disarray."

Edited By Marneros,Andreas and Angst,Jules
This book is written by international specialists on bipolar disorders. All fields of this topic are covered: the history and the evolution of concepts of bipolar disorders from ancient Greece to modern times. Original quotations of Hippocrates and Aretaeus of Cappadocia, the views of the European founders of modern psychiatry, and modern operational and biological data are considered. The role of personality, temperament, interactions, as well as of neurotransmitter, endocrinological factors and other biological parameters are extensively discussed together with genetic and epidemiological findings. Topics such as 'soft spectrum disorders', mixed states, schizoaffective bipolars, and long-term prognosis are extensively considered, and the role of modern antipsychotics, antidepressants, and mood stabilizers is another main point of the book. Special aspects of children, adults, and women's disorders are also discussed. The costs of treatment of bipolar disorders are described in their own chapter. In this book can be found a combination of the classical use in literature of bipolar disorders with modern data-oriented use. 483pp.N.B.Slight fade mark to base of spine and slight mark to front board.
