Ultimate Questions

We human beings had no say in existing - we just opened our eyes and found ourselves here. We have a fundamental need to understand who we are and the world we live in. Reason takes us a long way, but mystery remains. In Ultimate Questions, acclaimed philosopher Bryan Magee provocatively argues that we have no way of fathoming our own natures or finding definitive answers to the big questions we all face. Magee urges us to be the mapmakers of what is intelligible, and to identify the boundaries of meaningfulness. He traces this tradition of thought to his chief philosophical mentors - Locke, Hume, Kant, and Schopenhauer - and shows why this approach to the enigma of existence can enrich our lives and transform our understanding of the human predicament. As Magee puts it, ´´There is a world of difference between being lost in the daylight and being lost in the dark.´´

The Vital Question
10,49 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Why is life the way it is? Bacteria evolved into complex life just once in four billion years of life on earth-and all complex life shares many strange properties, from sex to ageing and death. If life evolved on other planets, would it be the same or completely different? In The Vital Question, Nick Lane radically reframes evolutionary history, putting forward a cogent solution to conundrums that have troubled scientists for decades. The answer, he argues, lies in energy: how all life on Earth lives off a voltage with the strength of a bolt of lightning. In unravelling these scientific enigmas, making sense of life´s quirks, Lane´s explanation provides a solution to life´s vital questions: why are we as we are, and why are we here at all? This is ground-breaking science in an accessible form, in the tradition of Charles Darwin´s The Origin of Species, Richard Dawkins´ The Selfish Gene, and Jared Diamond´s Guns, Germs and Steel.

The Invention of Tradition (Canto Classics)
15,99 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Many of the traditions which we think of as very ancient in their origins were not in fact sanctioned by long usage over the centuries, but were invented comparatively recently. This book explores examples of this process of invention - the creation of Welsh and Scottish ´national culture´; the elaboration of British royal rituals in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries; the origins of imperial rituals in British India and Africa; and the attempts by radical movements to develop counter-traditions of their own. It addresses the complex interaction of past and present, bringing together historians and anthropologists in a fascinating study of ritual and symbolism which poses new questions for the understanding of our history.

THE EBYEBUGO TRADITION AMONG THE HAYA
55,99 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Some scholars have argued that the art of praise poetry in African will soon be extinct. In one hand, this assertion may seem to be true while on the other hand, it is not. This outstanding book provides a new outlook on how African praise poetry, especially the Haya ebyebugo tradition, should be conceived and perpetuated. The poems have been categorized in term of their three historical developments: pre-independence, post-independence and contemporary, by identifying evolutionary changes in their performance, imagery, content, form and context. This is the most comprehensive survey of one of the Haya oral traditions. This book, therefore, provides answers to such questions as, what ebyebugo are, who perform them, when and where they are performed, how and why the Haya performed them, what differences there are between pre- colonial, post-colonial and contemporary ebyebugo, and what the future prospects are like for this tradition. This volume is a contribution to scholars in field of African oral tradition and literature, or anyone else who may be considering pursuing his or her interest in Haya oral traditions and literatures.

The book probes into contemporary Arab-Islamic thought on the question of tradition and modernity, continuity and renewal. It seeks to document significant contributions and philosophical underpinnings of some influential Arab-Muslim intellectuals in the last four decades. Their works center on the question of al-Nahda (the renaissance), modernity and how to handle the Arab- Islamic Turath(Tradition). These questions are still predominant in the contemporary imagining of intellectuals from different schools of thought, using different methodologies and models of thought. The book uses primary material from their works to explore modernity in a variety of discourses, dominant and marginalized, Islamist and non- Islamist. The religious and secular paradigmatic approaches have been in constant fissure and friction in their contests and contestations in the hermeneutics of Islam. In restricting the temporal frame of reference by narrowing its focus to discuss the approaches of four contemporary thinkers, it looks at the way these scholars have grappled this problematic using different methodologies and models of thought.
