Alle Menschen laufen mit der festen Uberzeugung durchs Leben, dass es ein ICH lebe" gibt, und glauben, ein eigenes, personliches Leben zu haben. Und dieses ICH hat ganz klare Vorstellungen davon, wie dieses personliche Leben auszusehen hat. Jedoch macht das die Menschen nicht unbedingt glucklich - im Gegenteil! Unmengen an Energie mussen aufgewendet werden, um das ICH lebe!" zu organisieren und zu kontrollieren. Was muss dieses ICH nicht alles tun, konnen und haben, um am Leben zu bleiben: Macht, Erfolg, Geld, Sicherheit, Kontrolle, Anerkennung, Dank, Liebe, Ziele, Erleuchtung .... Das ICH ist standig angespannt und gestresst. Nur in seltenen Momenten sieht es die Einfachheit und Schonheit des Lebens und ist wirklich zufrieden und entspannt, obwohl das ICH standig genau danach sucht, zur Ruhe zu kommen .... Warum kann das ICH das Leben nicht einfach geniessen? Was lauft falsch? Konnte es sein, dass sich 7 Milliarden Menschen irren? Was ware, wenn es dieses personliche Leben gar nicht gibt? Kann es ein Leben ohne ICH uberhaupt geben? Die Schwierigkeit ist, dass dieses ICH so fest im Denken der meisten verankert ist, dass niemand daruber nachdenkt oder gar an der Existenz des ICHs zweifelt. Und doch ist genau das der Schlussel: Es gibt eine Wirklichkeit ohne ICH. Personliches Leben hat noch nie existiert, das ICH ist eine Illusion, und wir alle leben in einer Scheinwelt. Wir alle sind geblendet und hypnotisiert. Ich lebe" ist die grosste Luge der Menschheit. Dieses Buch gibt den besten Rat, um diesen Stress zu beenden: Werden Sie Ihr ICH einfach los! Eine kleine Verschiebung der Sicht, die alles andert. Nichts wird mehr sein wie zuvor. Ein Leben in Freiheit. Jeden Moment. Frei ohne ICH. Dieses kleine Buchlein stellt die Gedankenwelt auf den Kopf. Es erweckt Menschen aus der Hypnose und aus dem Schlaf. Es zeigt mit einfachsten Mitteln ein Leben in grenzenloser Freiheit - fur jeden! Als Einheit. Ohne ein ICH!"

The Book

Genre: Philosophy

In The Book, Alan Watts provides us with a much-needed answer to the problem of personal identity, distilling and adapting the Hindu philosophy of Vedanta. At the root of human conflict is our fundamental misunderstanding of who we are. The illusion that we are isolated beings, unconnected to the rest of the universe, has led us to view the “outside” world with hostility, and has fueled our misuse of technology and our violent and hostile subjugation of the natural world. To help us understand that the self is in fact the root and ground of the universe, Watts has crafted a revelatory primer on what it means to be human—and a mind-opening manual of initiation into the central mystery of existence.

Release Date: 2010
Genre:

Ein selbst ernannter Museologe trauert um das unvollendete Werk eines Erzählers, der eintausend Anfänge benötigte, um den einen zu finden, den er gesucht hat; ein von den wirkungslosen Zeichen enttäuschter Dichter schifft sich in den hohen Norden ein, um dort zur Sprache zurückzufinden, die Worte vom Papier zu befreien, damit sie ihr eigenes Leben führen können. Er verstrickt sich in seinen ästhetischen Phantasien und Entwürfen und erkennt zu spät, dass die ideale Zone des Eises, die er für sein Projekt gesucht hat, längst wieder zu Wasser geworden ist.Immer wieder überschreiten Pordziks skurrile Ausflüge in die Randzonen literarischer Existenz die gewohnten erzählerischen Grenzen. Gedankentext und Erfahrungsliteratur greifen ineinander und bereiten damit den Boden für eine kunstvoll verschlungene Prosa, die sich angenehm vom spielerischen Narzissmus der jüngsten Autorengeneration und dem omnipräsenten Realismus abhebt, mit dem uns die Amerikaner verblüffen.

Paul Bekker s Musical Ethics

Author: Nanette Nielsen
Publisher: Routledge
ISBN: 9781317082989
Release Date: 2017-10-05
Genre: Music

German music critic and opera producer Paul Bekker (1882–1937) is a rare example of a critic granted the opportunity to turn his ideas into practice. In this first full-length study of Bekker in English, Nanette Nielsen investigates Bekker's theory and practice in light of ethics and aesthetics, in order to uncover the ways in which these intersect in his work and contributed to the cultural and political landscape of the Weimar Republic. By linking Beethoven's music to issues of freedom and individuality, as he argues for its potential to unify the masses, Bekker had already in 1911 begun to construct the ethical framework for his musical sociology and opera aesthetics. Nielsen discusses some of the complex (and conflicting) layers of modernism and conservatism in Bekker that would have a continued presence in his work and its reception throughout his career. Bekker's demands for a 'practical ethics' led to his criticisms of metaphysically grounded approaches to aesthetics, and his ethical views are put into further relief in a sketch of the development of his music phenomenology in the 1920s. Nielsen unravels the complex intersections between Bekker's ethics and his opera aesthetics in connection with his practice as an Intendant at the Wiesbaden State Theatre (1927–1932), offering a critical reading of an opera staged during his tenure: Hugo Herrmann’s Vasantasena (1930). Further works are considered in light of the theoretical framework underpinning the book, inspired by several intersections between ethics and aesthetics encountered in Bekker's work.

Beyond the Chains of Illusion

Author: Erich Fromm
Publisher: Open Road Media
ISBN: 9781480402102
Release Date: 2013-03-26
Genre: Psychology

A compendium of Erich Fromm’s renowned social theory and philosophy According to renowned psychoanalyst Erich Fromm, three people shaped the essential character of the twentieth century: Albert Einstein, Karl Marx, and Sigmund Freud. While the first two figures had a great physical and political impact on the world, Fromm believes that Freud had an even deeper impact, because he changed how we think about ourselves. Beyond the Chains of Illusion is one of Fromm’s most autobiographical works, as Fromm not only comments on the ideas of Freud and Marx, but also crystallizes his own theories on social character and unconscious values. The book brilliantly summarizes Fromm’s ideas on how culture and society shape our behavior. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Erich Fromm including rare images and never-before-seen documents from the author’s estate.

The Delusions of Certainty

Author: Siri Hustvedt
Publisher: Simon and Schuster
ISBN: 9781501183607
Release Date: 2017-10-17
Genre: Philosophy

“The Delusions of Certainty is a unique book by an extraordinary author. Siri Hustvedt is a notable novelist, art scholar, and a philosopher of science. In this memorable and immensely enjoyable volume, Hustvedt rises above the exhausted debate over the two cultures, to demonstrate not just the possibility but also the advantages of combining the approaches of the arts, humanities, and sciences to illuminate a key aspect of the human condition: the mind-body problem.” —Antonio Damasio, bestselling author of Descartes’ Error and Self Comes to Mind “Siri Hustvedt proves her membership in the highest rank of neuroscientists and philosophers who probe the nature of thought and the workings of consciousness. A novelist and a student of psychoanalysis and neuroscience, Hustvedt can ask questions others cannot ask about imagination, identity, epistemology, gendered power, and mortality. Her authoritative knowledge and her courage to challenge the status quo guide the reader to fresh epiphanies about what counts as human nature. The work is, in the end, a work of freedom.” —Rita Charon, Columbia University “The Delusions of Certainty is the best book on the mind-body problem I have ever read. Perhaps only a great novelist and essayist can address what neuroscientists and philosophers fail to question. Siri Hustvedt takes the reader on an inspiring journey into highly relevant and often unanswered questions about what it means to be human.” —Vittorio Gallese, University of Parma Prizewinning novelist, feminist, and scholar Siri Hustvedt turns her brilliant and critical eye toward the metaphysical issues of neuropsychology in this lauded, standalone volume. Originally published in her “canonical” (Publishers Weekly) and “absorbing” (Kirkus Reviews) collection A Woman Looking at Men Looking at Women, The Delusions of Certainty exposes how the age-old, unresolved mind-body problem has shaped—and often distorted and confused—contemporary thought in neuroscience, psychiatry, genetics, artificial intelligence, and evolutionary psychology.

A man's obsession with a silent-film star sends him on a journey into a shadow world of lies, illusions, and unexpected love Six months after losing his wife and two young sons in an airplane crash, Vermont professor David Zimmer spends his waking hours mired in a blur of alcoholic grief and self-pity. Then, watching television one night, he stumbles upon a clip from a lost silent film by comedian Hector Mann. Zimmer's interest is piqued, and he soon finds himself embarking on a journey around the world to research a book on this mysterious figure, who vanished from sight in 1929 and has been presumed dead for sixty years. When the book is published the following year, a letter turns up in Zimmer's mailbox bearing a return address from a small town in New Mexico-supposedly written by Hector's wife. "Hector has read your book and would like to meet you. Are you interested in paying us a visit?" Is the letter a hoax, or is Hector Mann still alive? Torn between doubt and belief, Zimmer hesitates, until one night a strange woman appears on his doorstep and makes the decision for him, changing his life forever. This stunning novel plunges the reader into a universe in which the comic and the tragic, the real and the imagined, the violent and the tender dissolve into one another. With The Book of Illusions, one of America's most powerful and original writers has written his richest, most emotionally charged work yet.

Negative Gefühle wie Schuld, Ärger, Zweifel und Enttäuschung hinterlassen Spuren in unserer Seele. Je länger wir diesen negativen Einflüssen ausgesetzt sind, desto nachhaltiger verbleiben die Spuren in uns. Das Resultat: eine Art emotionale Übersäuerung. Der Mechanismus funktioniert ähnlich der körperlichen Übersäuerung, die durch ungesunde Lebensweise entsteht. Kurt Tepperwein hat ein effektives und erholsames Detox-Verfahren entwickelt, mit dem wir unserer Seele einen ungeahnten Erholungseffekt und Frischeboost zukommen lassen können. Mithilfe eines schlüssigen und leicht anwendbaren Programms erklärt Kurt Tepperwein: • was die Ursachen für mentale Übersäuerung sind: Angst, Enttäuschung, Schuld, Zweifel • wie man Lösungen finden und sich von negativen Mustern befreien kann • welche Faktoren (z. B. Gelassenheit, Vertrauen, Mut) die geistige Hygiene fördern Ein zusätzlicher Serviceteil mit Checklisten und einer Übungsanleitung zur individuellen Selbstanalyse runden diesen klassischen Kurt-Tepperwein-Ratgeber ab.
