<P><EM>Going West?</EM> uses the latest data to question how the Neolithic way of life was diffused from the Near East to Europe via Anatolia. The transformations of the 7th millennium BC in western Anatolia undoubtedly had a significant impact on the neighboring regions of southeast Europe. Yet the nature, pace and trajectory of this impact needs still to be clarified. Archaeologists searched previously for similarities in prehistoric, especially Early Neolithic, material cultures on both sides of the Sea of Marmara. Recent research shows that although the isthmi of the Dardanelles and the Bosporus connect Asia Minor and the eastern Balkans, they apparently did not serve as passageways for the dissemination of Neolithic innovations. Instead, the first permanent settlements are situated near the Aegean coast of Thrace and Macedonia, often occurring close to the mouths of big rivers in secluded bays. The courses and the valleys of rivers such as the Maritsa, Strymon and Axios, were perfect corridors for contact and exchange.Using previous studies as a basis for fresh research, this volume presents exciting new viewpoints by analyzing recently discovered materials and utilising interdisciplinary investigations with the application of modern research methods.</P><br /><P>The seventeen authors of this book have dedicated their research to a renewed evaluation of an old problem: namely, the question of how the complex transformations at the transition from the Mesolithic to the Neolithic can be explained. They have focused their studies on the vast area of the eastern Balkans and the Pontic region between the Bosporus and the rivers Strymon, Danube and Dniestr. Going West? thus offers an overview of the current state of research concerning the Neolithisation of these areas, considering varied viewpoints and also providing useful starting points for future investigations.</P><br /><P></P>

In ancient China, a revered Taoist sage named Zhuangzi told many parables. In <EM>Existential Psychology and the Way of the Tao</EM>, a selection of these parables will be featured. Following each parable, an eminent existential psychologist will share a personal and scholarly reflection on the meaning and relevance of the parable for psychotherapy and contemporary life. The major tenets of Zhuangzi's philosophy are featured. Taoist concepts of emptiness, stillness, Wu Wei (i.e. intentional non-intentionality), epistemology, dreams and the nature of reality, character building in the midst of pain, meaning and the centrality of relationships, authenticity, self-care, the freedom that can come from one's willingness to confront death, spiritual freedom, and gradations of therapeutic care are topics highlighted in this book.

‘Basics of Feng Shui: The Art and Science of Sensing the Energies' (Scholarly Articles, Vol. 11)—2017 Revised, Updated and Reformatted Kindle Edition—is an introduction into a perennial science that originated from the ancient Chinese practice of arrangement of space which is claimed to achieve harmony with the environment. <br /><br />There is scientific evidence now that Feng Shui is effective and not just a belief system, as astrology is not a belief system. Feng Shui is a science of the bioenergy and perhaps the oldest distillation of this holistic knowledge.<br /><br />While Feng Shui is practiced as a business in Hong Kong, Kuala Lumpur and Singapore, for the construction of houses and offices, it has to be seen that this is only the pragmatic branch of a larger body of science that really deals with all living and how human beings relate to the greater realms of plants, animals, water, rivers, mountains, and generally to the cosmos. <br /><br />Systems theory now reveals our total interconnectedness, however, the Chinese knew this more than five thousand years ago. Feng Shui is one of many manifestations of this age-old holistic knowledge about the connective patterns between humanity and the whole of the cosmos.<br /><br />The fully illustrated book comes with a Glossary and a complete Bibliography.

<p>"I don’t want to merely offer you a book. Rather, I want to present you a special companion,”  writes Peter Müller, the renowned Hungarian author whose spiritual books have helped shape the lives of hundreds of thousands of dedicated readers in Hungary.</p><br /><p>The Oracle has become a Bible of sorts for millions of people, and one of the greatest bestsellers in the book market for many years. According to experts, this writing remains one of the most meaningful examples of the modern I Ching literature.</p><br /><p>The author studied the Chinese I Ching for twenty years. This is the only book in the world with which you can converse: you can ask questions of it, and it will reply to you as a living sage. According to ancient I Ching tradition, invisible Holy Spirits stand behind the book and help those turning to them with problems of their fate.</p><br /><p>Peter Müller himself has a constant relationship with such a spiritual guide who helped him write this book and translate the old symbols to our contemporary, everyday life.</p><br /><p>The I Ching has been an advisor in the East for thousands of years. Its popularity increased in the West due to the influence of C. G. Jung who used the text for fate analysis and therapy.</p><br /><p>There is hardly a bookshelf in the country that does not include this vital work, and more and more people are turning to it for advice.</p><br /><p>This book does not predict the future, but it divines. It tells us how we can shape our own fate and helps us deal with all problems, big and small, which occur in our lives.</p><br /><p>It helps us to simply live</p>

<i>C’è una vecchia storiella: Un uomo guida lungo l’autostrada. Notizia d’emergenza alla radio: «Attenzione, un pazzo va contromano in A 14!»</i><br /><i>Solo uno? – pensa l’uomo – qua vanno tutti contromano! </i><br /><i>Costui è il filosofo. La filosofia segue una strada contraria rispetto al buon senso comune. E lo fa di proposito. </i><br />I saggi che qui presentiamo sono un tentativo di riportare la filosofia su quella strada, da dove è nata. Sono stati presentati in una serie di incontri pubblici e aperti, rivolti a non specialisti, presso la Biblioteca Filelfica di Tolentino (MC) nel 2016.<br />Le discussioni sono state avviate da un “perturbatore/provocatore”, esperto in filosofia, con il compito di porre domande e avviare il dibattito, secondo il modello del “filosofo-tafano” autorevolmente rappresentato da Socrate.<br />L’intenzione era di riflettere sulle molteplici articolazioni e declinazioni (etiche, estetiche, ontologiche, gnoseologiche e sociologico-politiche) di alcune nozioni poliedriche come “bello”, “brutto” e “cattivo”.<br />Il saggio di Arianna Fermani <b>L'eleganza del bene e le seduzioni del male: in dialogo con Aristotele</b><b> </b>introduce agli aspetti etici connessi al bello e buono, ovvero la ricerca della felicità che contraddistingue la vita buona. Essa si contrappone al male, che si presenta sotto molte forme e molti nomi, dal momento che esso consiste nell’eccesso, in tutto ciò che è smisurato. Il bene invece è giusta misura, equilibrio tra eccessi, uno stretto sentiero che solo l’uomo saggio sa percorrere con eleganza. <br />Il bello è protagonista nel successivo saggio di Massimo Bracci <b>Heidegger e la Pop art</b> incentrato sulla filosofia dell’arte. Le avanguardie del ’900 ci presentano opere talvolta spiazzanti, sulle quali si prova a gettare luce a partire dalle considerazioni sull’arte di Heidegger. Ma il vero tema è la condizione umana, dal momento che molti artisti rinunciano a una vita ordinaria e serena per abbandonarsi alla propria opera, talvolta fino a bruciarsi. Compito della filosofia è interrogarsi su cosa li spinge lontano da una vita, secondo ragione: cos’è quel di più che caratterizza gli artisti, quel qualcosa che li rende umani (e sovrumani, praticamente divini)?<br /><b>È necessario credere negli altri? La scommessa della fiducia </b>di Cinzia Cotini affronta il versante delle relazioni umane, con una riflessione sul senso e sul valore della fiducia. È necessario credere negli altri o possiamo farne a meno? A partire dagli spunti del libro <i>Avere fiducia</i> di Michela Marzano, vengono richiamate non solo le riflessioni dei filosofi, ma anche di narratori, poeti, film, per analizzare la logica asimmetrica della fiducia, il ‘come’ ci affidiamo o no ai nostri simili e la nostra posizione nel mondo proprio a partire dalla fiducia che accordiamo o neghiamo.<br />In <b>La falsa storia della tolleranza – Mimesi e violenza all’origine della cultura occidentale</b> di Michele Rozzi si introduce una problematica politica della massima attualità: la tolleranza ovvero l’apertura (o la chiusura) di una civiltà nei confronti delle altre. In cosa consiste arroccarsi dal punto di vista antropologico?  Nella storia della civiltà l’arrocco è una delle mosse più usate dalle comunità in una situazione di pericolo e dagli stati, dai regni e dagli imperi nel momento in cui, persa l’iniziativa e abbandonata la fase offensiva, ci si prepara a resistere.<br />Elena Irrera in <b>Il valore metodologico dell’amare “in modo bello” nel <i>Simposio</i> di Platone. Un antidoto al brutto e al cattivo</b> prende spunto dalla parte [...]
