The term 'Nature Spirits' or 'Elementals, ' generally conjures up images of dancing fairies or mischievous gnomes. Yet that's not what they are, not at all. You see, every aspect of Nature... from the flowers that bloom in the springtime, to the giant Red Woods that have stood tall for decades, has a spirit inside them. This 'Spirit of Nature' or 'Elemental Spark' works alongside Mother Nature, using its chosen talents and insights to accomplish what needs to be done to maintain our planet. If that's the case, then what about the land itself, or the mountains and stones that cover this planet, you wonder? Wouldn't they also be considered Nature Spirits? The answer is... Yes, of course. The Earth is full of ancient knowledge and the Stones and their counterparts have been the keepers of this knowledge since the beginning of time. It is only through them that we can discover how our world first began and what other secrets and purposes the Nature Spirits of this planet still hold in todays world. Inside this book they have provided us with many of the answers, not only regarding questions about the past but the future as well. Questions such as...where did the Standing Stones and Circles come from and what was the real purpose of those giant, ancient pyramids? Were visitors from the stars responsible for the building of this planet, and why do some volcanos remain active while others sleep? What about the land itself? How does it feel about being battled upon, or built upon for that matter? These are just a few of the answers the Elementals of this planet give us. Come inside and discover a world that most never knew existed. A place full of insight, ancient knowledge and fascinating facts, alive with hidden secrets and details that only Nature Spirits that have been around since the beginning of time would know. Yes, the Elemental Kingdom does exist. It's with great pleasure that the Nature Spirits of the Land now ask that you enter their world as they give you the answers to many of the questions you've always wondered about... "Elementally Speaking," of course.

Contemporary philosopher William Desmond has many companions in thought, and one of the most important of these is Augustine. In lucid prose that draws on the riches of a vibrant philosophical-theological tradition, Renee Kӧhler-Ryan explores Desmond's metaxological philosophy. She elaborates on how Desmond's philosophical work in discovering how humans are constantly "between" remains in conversation with a tradition of thinkers that includes Plato, Augustine, Thomas Aquinas, and Shakespeare. This book concentrates especially on how Desmond both draws upon and develops some of the central insights in Augustine. At the same time, it brings together philosophy, theology, and literature into a rich engagement of ideas that impact the way humans think and live. Whether considering how our elemental wonder at creation brings us closer to God, or how our most intimate revelations about being human happen in the interior space of prayer, reading Desmond with Augustine illuminates a porous and interdisciplinary space of inquiry. Companions in the Between is a unique contribution to the growing body of scholarship on William Desmond's thought. It opens with a foreword from Desmond. Its pages will entice any reader who wants to know more about how contemporary philosophy can contest a space where philosophers are formulaically expected to shy away from divine transcendence.

English summary: Whereas previous methods of understanding Jesus' parables were strictly separated according to history, literature and the aesthetics of reception, the authors of this book attempt to look at the various approaches together from the perspective of hermeneutics. Although the individual contributors to the volume do represent different perspectives, the connection between the various approaches can be perceived in this collection of essays, which are based on papers presented while working on the Compendium of the Parables of Jesus (edited by R. Zimmermann, Gutersloh 2007) during the Conference on Parables in Bielefeld in October 2005 and February 2006. In their articles, the authors seek to establish a dialogue with American research on parables. German description: Gleichnisse sind Ratseltexte. Sie sind nicht klar und eindeutig, sondern setzen einen Prozess der Deutung in Gang, der je nach Perspektive unterschiedlich ausfallen kann. So gibt es nicht nur eine richtige Interpretation eines Gleichnisses, sondern vielmehr unterschiedliche Verstehensmoglichkeiten, die je und je neu gefunden werden mussen.In ihrer bewusst kalkulierten Deutungsoffenheit machen die Gleichnisse die Reflexion der Verstehensvoraussetzungen und -methoden unerlasslich, sie erfordern Hermeneutik. Der vorliegende Sammelband stellt sich dieser Herausforderung und dokumentiert dabei zugleich hermeneutische Weichenstellungen, die innerhalb des Kompendiums der Gleichnisse Jesu (hg. v. R. Zimmermann, 2007, Gutersloher Verlagshaus) leitend wurden.Im Einzelnen werden historische (z.B. sozialgeschichtliche), sprachwissenschaftliche (z.B. gattungstheoretische) sowie rezeptionsasthetische (z.B. semiotische) Ansatze der Gleichnisdeutung vorgestellt und diskutiert. Dabei wird immer wieder der Dialog mit der amerikanischen Gleichnisforschung gesucht. Neben der Divergenz der Verstehenswege sollen aber auch Schnittstellen und mogliche Verknupfungen unterschiedlicher Perspektiven im Horizont einer eintegrativen Gleichnishermeneutik' sichtbar werden.

This book is a comprehensive study of Peer Gynt, a drama that forms the foundation of not only the entire Ibsen canon but also modern drama as a whole. It provides scene-by-scene commentary on the drama, showing how the literature and ideas of the drama resemble, and sometimes duplicate, the literature and philosophy of Soren Kierkegaard. It is the first such study since Henri Logeman's commentary on the drama published in 1917. Although the main focus of the book is Ibsen's drama, Bruce Shapiro's study provides some substantial insights into Kierkegaard. He demonstrates how Ibsen's poem was influenced by Kierkegaard's philosophy and literature. One of the most perplexing questions about Peer Gynt is how the ending of the drama functions as a resolution to the whole. This study formulates an understanding, based upon Kierkegaardian philosophy, that accounts for this scene. Moreover, the revelation of Kierkegaard's influence on Ibsen allows the contemporary reader to experience the essence of the drama within the same intellectual context in which it made its first literary appearance. When Kierkegaard's philosophy is artistically brought back into existence through a reader's experience of Peer Gynt, it is as if that reader is a contemporary of those very thoughts. With Kierkegaardian philosophy as the common horizon of understanding, Peer Gynt may be perceived as a complete and unified drama from its beginning to its conclusion. Shapiro's book is the first comprehensive study of Peer Gynt to be published. It may also be the first study to demonstrate one way in which the entire Kierkegaardian dialetic was understood during the philosopher's lifetime. This unique work will be a valuable book for scholars and students of drama, Scandinavian studies, modern philosophy, and existentialism.

In this groundbreaking book, Nigel Hoffmann shows that understanding the dynamic, living qualities of nature requires artistic capacities. He distinguishes four stages of scientific inquiry that correspond to the four classical elements of Earth, Water, Air, and Fire. Modern analytical science with its causal thinking can be characterized as an Earth mode of cognition. A dynamic approach that follows transformation over time requires a sculptural sense of form and corresponds to the element of Water. The stages of Air and Fire engage yet more vital aspects of nature through musical and poetic capacities. Combining scholarly-scientific acuity with artistic insight, Hoffmann first characterizes these four different ways of knowing. He then applies them, leading us ever more deeply into the dynamic qualities of specific plants, animals, and the landscape they live in. In doing so, he demonstrates how this four-step methodology provides a comprehensive framework for the life sciences. This beautifully illustrated book will appeal to all who are interested in gaining deeper insights into nature.

"Written in an extraordinary lucid style, Elemental Mind is a brilliant and audacious attempt to arrive at a solution to the mind/body problem." Until now the debate has been dominated by two major conjectures. One holds that the mind is the result of certain complex biological interactions; the other asserts that the mind is the "software" that controls the brain's computer-like "hardware." This book presents a third hypothesis - one that boldly casts aside traditional explanations about inner mental states. And it does so by drawing on sources as diverse as Vonnegut and Heisenberg, not to mention imagined encounters with an entrancing, highly intelligent robot named Claire. Founding his argument on the basics of quantum theory (randomness, thinglessness, and interconnectedness), Nick Herbert explores the intriguing hypothesis that, far from being a derivative phenomenon, mind is a fundamentals process in its own right, as widespread and deeply embedded in nature as light or electricity. Elegantly written and startlingly original, Elemental Mind offers a new approach to the riddle of consciousness that has challenged philosophers and scientists for centuries. Its implications are nothing short of revolutionary"--Back cover.
