At the time, Lithuanian Jews were suffering under Nazi rule, and many hoped to escape before they could be taken to concentration camps. Chiune knew he had to help. Going against the wishes of his boss, Chiune allowed nearly 6,000 Jews to leave Lithuania and escape the Nazis."Article| Alison Gold| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : The Fate of Anatomical Collections
☯ Full Synopsis : "Almost every medical faculty possesses anatomical and/or pathological collections: human and animal preparations, wax- and other models, as well as drawings, photographs, documents and archives relating to them. In many institutions these collections are well-preserved, but in others they are poorly maintained and rendered inaccessible to medical and other audiences. This volume explores the changing status of anatomical collections from the early modern period to date. It is argued that anatomical and pathological collections are medically relevant not only for future generations of medical faculty and future research, but they are also important in the history of medicine, the history of the institutions to which they belong, and to the wider understanding of the cultural history of the body. Moreover, anatomical collections are crucial to new scholarly inter-disciplinary studies that investigate the interaction between arts and sciences, especially medicine, and offer a venue for the study of interactions between anatomists, scientists, anatomical artists and other groups, as well as the display and presentation of natural history and medical cabinets. In considering the fate of anatomical collections - and the importance of the keeper’s decisions with respect to collections - this volume will make an important methodological contribution to the study of collections and to discussions on how to preserve universities’ academic heritage."Article| Rina Knoeff| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : The Fate of the Self
☯ Full Synopsis : "Much recent critical theory has dismissed or failed to take seriously the question of the self. French theorists—such as Derrida, Barthes, Benveniste, Foucault, Lacan, and Lévi-Strauss—have in various ways proclaimed the death of the subject, often turning to German intellectual tradition to authorize their views. Stanley Corngold's heralded book, The Fate of the Self, published for the first time in paperback with a spirited new preface, appears at a time when the relationship between the self and literature is a matter of renewed concern. Originally published in 1986 (Columbia University Press), the book examines the poetic self of German intellectual tradition in light of recent French and American critical theory. Focusing on seven major German writers—Hölderlin, Dilthey, Nietzsche, Mann, Kafka, Freud, and Heidegger—Corngold shows that their work does not support the desire to discredit the self as an origin of meaning and value but reconstructs the allegedly fragmented poetic self through effects of position and style. Offering new and subtle models of selfhood, The Fate of the Self is a source of rich insight into the work of these authors, refracted through poststructuralist critical perspectives."Article| Stanley Corngold| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : Create Your Own Fate
☯ Full Synopsis : "Nothing is "Beyond Belief" Imagination is the key to creating a new reality! Whatever you can imagine, you can implement. Whatever you believe to be actually creates the world you see. Life doesn't just happen to you. It "responds" to you and the thoughts that you are creating on a continuing basis. Although thoughts are not tangible, they are programmable and powerful. Thoughts can transform the abstract into the absolute. This book is about creative visualization or "wishcraft" which is a way of thinking that can change your life. The principles proposed in this book can propel you from poverty to prosperity and jumpstart your JOY as you learn how to transform your thoughts into reality. The process starts with a dream, a desire, or even just a wish. Wishes come in all sizes. One can wish small or one can wish "big or tall." One can even choose not to wish at all, but wishing is really the key to creating a new reality. Everything that you can conceive of already exists or you couldn't even conceive of it. Creative visualization simply makes the invisible visible! Your beliefs are the key to making the invisible materialize. Predicting the future actually becomes possible once you realize that you can create your own future by propelling your dreams into reality. The world can be yours to have and to hold once you take control of your own destiny. That doesn't mean that you can control the events that will happen in your life, but you can control how you envision those events. Those visualizations can either empower you to excel or cripple you in crisis. If you want your life to change, try doing something strange. If you want your life to be different, do different, think different. Sometimes all that you need to change is your mind and your beliefs! Stop setting limits on your life! Become part of the cycle of life which is to Dream, desire, create and inspire........."Article| Elaine Northrop| Statement ..."
♥ Book Title : The Taming of Fate
☯ Full Synopsis : "This book is about how extreme situations appearing to have a destructive potential can actually be used to produce meaningful individual and social lives. It is about the “taming of fate”. This notion means and accounts for the ability of individuals and communities to rebuild their lives against all odds. The book is based on case-studies that draw from theoretical insights derived from the sociology of disasters. It addresses some limitations of the sociology of risk, chief among which is the rejection of the relevance of the notion of risk to the study of technologically non-advanced societies. The book argues that this rejection has deprived the study of the human condition of an important analytical asset. The book claims that risk is a property of social action which can best be understood through the analytical scrutiny of its role in the historical constitution of social relations."Article| Macamo, Elisio S.| Statement ..."
♥ Book Title : Life and Fate
☯ Full Synopsis : "A book judged so dangerous in the Soviet Union that not only the manuscript but the ribbons on which it had been typed were confiscated by the state, Life and Fate is an epic tale of World War II and a profound reckoning with the dark forces that dominated the twentieth century. Interweaving a transfixing account of the battle of Stalingrad with the story of a single middle-class family, the Shaposhnikovs, scattered by fortune from Germany to Siberia, Vasily Grossman fashions an immense, intricately detailed tapestry depicting a time of almost unimaginable horror and even stranger hope.Life and Fate juxtaposes bedrooms and snipers’ nests, scientific laboratories and the Gulag, taking us deep into the hearts and minds of characters ranging from a boy on his way to the gas chambers to Hitler and Stalin themselves. This novel of unsparing realism and visionary moral intensity is one of the supreme achievements of modern Russian literature."Article| Vasily Grossman| Statement ..."
