Book Excerpt :

Este libro surge de un proceso de investigación didáctica colaborativa y propone dos lecturas complementarias: la primera, relacionada con las posibilidades de realizar un giro didáctico –desde una didáctica de la filosofía a una didáctica de sujetos que filosofen– en las actuales condiciones de la asignatura en la escuela media; la segunda, como un texto que aborda procesos de formación didáctica y continua de docentes de filosofía. En ambos casos los autores han pensado y repensado la acción didáctica, sometiéndola a nuevos sentidos y significados con el objeto de generar conocimiento didáctico fundamentado desde la experiencia. Se trata, entonces, de una publicación que invita a conversar, a preguntarse, a discutir, a imaginar y posicionarse en relación con el sentido de una formación filosófica situada y con pertinencia sociohistórica. Tal propósito implica un reposicionamiento de las finalidades de la enseñanza de la asignatura en la escuela, y del sentido de la educación en el nivel medio. Al respecto, este libro desarrolla los fundamentos teórico-prácticos de una serie de experiencias filosóficas en el aula, co-construidas con jóvenes de liceos científico-humanistas y técnico-profesionales, tanto municipales como particulares subvencionados y particulares pagados.

Book Short Summary:

Com uma linguagem clara e acessível, o professor Dejalma Cremonese apresenta os temas da ética e da felicidade a partir da argumentação filosófica. Partindo da mitologia e da filosofia antiga, ele transita entre Hesíodo, Homero, Sófocles, Sócrates, Platão, Aristóteles e as escolas filosóficas do período helênico até autores mais contemporâneos como Jean-Paul Vernant, Erich Fromm, Joseph Campbell, Pierre Hadot, Luc Ferry, Frédéric Lenoir, André Comte-Sponville, Marcel Conche e Fernando Savater, abstraindo lições para uma vida boa, alegre, serena e harmônica. Para o autor, a filosofia não é a única maneira de se ter uma vida mais ética e mais feliz, mas ela certamente apontará um caminho que se encarregará da transformação e da construção de si mesmo.

Book Short Summary:

ESTE LIBRO NO ES UNA OBRA MAESTRA Pedirle a un guionista que prologue un manual de escritura son ganas de empezar el día con jarana. No descubro nada a nadie si señalo la mala fama que tienen este tipo de libros entre los profesionales, gente que disfrutamos mucho diciendo aquello de que a escribir películas se viene aprendido de casa y lo demás son artificios. Para despachar este tema nos gusta pavonearnos con aquello de que si estriñen la creatividad, que si los escribe gente que no han firmado ningún guion o que, por atajar retórica, son inútiles. Yo aquí pego un golpe en la mesa y me voy de la cena. Yo no creo que los manuales de guion sean inútiles. Creo que sirven para algo, pero no para aprender a escribir películas.

Book Short Summary:

Este antimanual arremete contra muchas de las ideas preconcebidas que suelen empantanar la discusión en torno al libro y la lectura. Sin temor a ser calificado de políticamente incorrecto y apoyándose en su profundo conocimiento del tema, Juan Domingo Argüelles cuestiona la validez de afirmaciones que la mayoría considera indudables, como la de que el libro, por sí solo, transforma y mejora a todas las personas. En este mismo sentido, considerar a la lectura como un hábito que de manera necesaria eleva moralmente al individuo representa, para él, una noble utopía o un generoso equívoco producto del optimismo. Frente a esta visión idealizada, Argüelles reflexiona, más allá de mistificaciones y lugares comunes, sobre la verdadera importancia del libro y sobre el sentido, valor y posibilidades de la promoción cultural.

Book Short Summary:

A fonte maior de informações sobre os acontecimentos diários continua a ser o telejornalismo, não obstante a importância de outros veículos. Mas os telejornais hoje enfrentam uma crise que não é apenas a de diminuição de audiência: as gerações mais jovens migram para outros meios que incorporam tecnologias de interatividade. Além disso, na "sociedade do espetáculo", o noticiário de tevê tende a dar mais relevo ao irrelevante, mais destaque ao âncora que o apresenta e mais veracidade ao que convém à empresa transmissora. O jornalista e professor Antonio Cláudio Brasil examina esses fenômenos a partir de sua atuação no Brasil e no exterior, refletindo sobre eles de maneira apaixonada e polêmica. Ao denominar seu livro Antimanual, evidencia sua disposição de apontar os erros que acarretam os atuais impasses do telejornalismo, reivindicando maior preocupação com questões éticas e com o jornalismo combativo, inventivo, não burocrático. O Antimanual de jornalismo e comunicação, mais um lançamento do Senac São Paulo para a área de mídia, constitui um livro destinado a figurar na bibliografia básica dos que se preparam para a atividade jornalística ou que já a exercem.

Book Short Summary:

An analysis of contemporary violence as the new commodity of today's hyper-consumerist stage of capitalism. “Death has become the most profitable business in existence.” —from Gore Capitalism Written by the Tijuana activist intellectual Sayak Valencia, Gore Capitalism is a crucial essay that posits a decolonial, feminist philosophical approach to the outbreak of violence in Mexico and, more broadly, across the global regions of the Third World. Valencia argues that violence itself has become a product within hyper-consumerist neoliberal capitalism, and that tortured and mutilated bodies have become commodities to be traded and utilized for profit in an age of impunity and governmental austerity. In a lucid and transgressive voice, Valencia unravels the workings of the politics of death in the context of contemporary networks of hyper-consumption, the ups and downs of capital markets, drug trafficking, narcopower, and the impunity of the neoliberal state. She looks at the global rise of authoritarian governments, the erosion of civil society, the increasing violence against women, the deterioration of human rights, and the transformation of certain cities and regions into depopulated, ghostly settings for war. She offers a trenchant critique of masculinity and gender constructions in Mexico, linking their misogynist force to the booming trade in violence. This book is essential reading for anyone seeking to analyze the new landscapes of war. It provides novel categories that allow us to deconstruct what is happening, while proposing vital epistemological tools developed in the convulsive Third World border space of Tijuana.

Book Short Summary:

A married person falls deeply in love with someone else. A man of average income feels he cannot be truly happy unless he owns an expensive luxury car. A dieter has an irresistible craving for ice cream. Desires often come to us unbidden and unwanted, and they can have a dramatic impact, sometimes changing the course of our lives. In On Desire, William B. Irvine takes us on a wide-ranging tour of our impulses, wants, and needs, showing us where these feelings come from and how we can try to rein them in. Spicing his account with engaging observations by writers like Seneca, Tolstoy, and Freud, Irvine considers the teachings of Buddhists, Hindus, the Amish, Shakers, and Catholic saints, as well as those of ancient Greek and Roman and modern European philosophers. Irvine also looks at what modern science can tell us about desire--such as what happens in the brain when we desire something and how animals evolved particular desires--and he advances a new theory about how desire itself evolved. Irvine also suggests that at the same time that we gained the ability to desire, we were "programmed" to find some things more desirable than others. Irvine concludes that the best way to attain lasting happiness is not to change the world around us or our place in it, but to change ourselves. If we can convince ourselves to want what we already have, we can dramatically enhance our happiness. Brimming with wisdom and practical advice, On Desire offers a thoughtful approach to controlling unwanted passions and attaining a more meaningful life.

Book Short Summary:

Esta obra fue proyectada, más que como un libro, como el inicio de un movimiento filosófico continental. Es decir, los autores de las contribuciones toman conciencia de que la tarea que han asumido es de tal envergadura que no pueden sino cumplirla parcialmente. Los trabajos a lo largo y ancho de toda la región latinoamericana sobrepasan a los especialistas de la historia o de temas expuestos en el orden nacional. Cuando debe abordarse la temática tal como lo exige una obra sobre la filosofía latinoamericana, se encuentran dificultades tales como la falta de bibliotecas especializadas en esta problemática regional, de especialistas que hayan tratado los temas y estudiado suficientemente los asuntos para proponer diversas hipótesis que permitan fecundos debates. Todo comienza entonces por obtener materiales bibliográficos y temáticos necesarios. Esto no se logra en corto tiempo, exige años de perseverancia en la que los autores adquieren conciencia de los límites de la presente empresa. Por ello, mucho más que el lector son los mismos editores y autores de esta obra los que tienen conciencia de que sólo se ha iniciado la extracción de un precioso metal de una rica mina casi inexplorada en su conjunto.

Book Short Summary:

This book presents an interdisciplinary study of the relation between semiotics, law & art. Focusing on Greimasian semiotics, it examines specific works of art (from Giotto to Banksy) that deal with the theme of justice, promoting a more sensitive and humanized perception of the values that surround law. The book offers readers a comprehensive review of the semiotics of law, critically examining the relation between law & art. It covers a variety of topics, including semiotics, law and art; semiotics, art and experience; and society, law and art, as well as semiotics, law and painting; semiotics, law and architecture; semiotics, law and theatre; semiotics, law and literature; and semiotics, law and culture. In doing so, it uses the semiotics of painting to explain the symbology of justice and its significance in history; the semiotics of architecture to explain the setting of justice; the semiotics of theatre to explain the logic of the legal process; and the semiotics of literature to explain the narrative logic of legal decisions. Lastly, drawing on the semiotics of culture, it discusses ways of promoting justice, citizenship and human rights. Written from both philosophical and semiotical perspectives, the book enhances the centrality of visual jurisprudence studies to promote a better understanding of the role of law.

  • Pdf File: the-consolations-of-philosophy.pdf

Book Short Summary:

From the author of How Proust Can Change Your Life, a delightful, truly consoling work that proves that philosophy can be a supreme source of help for our most painful everyday problems. Perhaps only Alain de Botton could uncover practical wisdom in the writings of some of the greatest thinkers of all time. But uncover he does, and the result is an unexpected book of both solace and humor. Dividing his work into six sections -- each highlighting a different psychic ailment and the appropriate philosopher -- de Botton offers consolation for unpopularity from Socrates, for not having enough money from Epicurus, for frustration from Seneca, for inadequacy from Montaigne, and for a broken heart from Schopenhauer (the darkest of thinkers and yet, paradoxically, the most cheering). Consolation for envy -- and, of course, the final word on consolation -- comes from Nietzsche: "Not everything which makes us feel better is good for us." This wonderfully engaging book will, however, make us feel better in a good way, with equal measures of wit and wisdom.

Book Short Summary:

This book examines the reality behind the myths of the legendary German fighter aces of World War II. It explains why only a small minority of pilots - those in whom the desire for combat overrode everything - accounted for so large a proportion of the victories. It surveys the skills that a successful fighter pilot must have - a natural aptitude for flying, marksmanship, keen eyesight - and the way in which fighter tactics have developed. The book examines the history of the classic fighter aircraft that were flown, such as the Messerschmitt Bf 109 and the Focke Wulf Fw 190, and examines each type's characteristics, advantages and disadvantages in combat. The accounts of the experiences of fighter pilots are based on archival research, diaries, letters, published and unpublished memoirs and personal interviews with veterans. The pilots included are Werner Molders, Gunther Rall, Adolf Galland, Erich Hartmann and Johannes Steinhoff.

Book Short Summary:

“[A] beautiful book of hope and inspiration . . . Pope Francis speaks frankly about problems facing the young and the elderly, Catholic and non-Catholic.”—Publishers Weekly (starred review) Pope Francis examines the role of millennials in the future of the Catholic Church in this urgent call to believers of all generations to work together to build a better world. Since his election in 2013, Pope Francis has reinvigorated the Catholic Church and become one of the most popular global leaders. Now, in this extraordinary interview with journalist Thomas Leoncini, His Holiness reminds Catholics of all ages that “God is young; He is always new.” God has energy, spontaneity, and the desire for change—youthful qualities that can be rallied to fight the many problems facing the Catholic Church and the world at large. In this inspiring volume, published in English for the first time, Pope Francis’s solution to these challenges is simple: a “revolution of tenderness” that unites believers of all ages in a mission to remake the world. “God is young! God is the Eternal One who has no time, but is able to renew and rejuvenate Himself and all things continually. The most distinctive attributes of the young are also His. He is young because He makes all things new and loves innovation; because He astonishes and loves astonishment; because He dreams and wants us to dream.”—Pope Francis Praise for God Is Young “Enlightening . . . The interview is extremely wide-ranging. [Pope Francis’s] answers contemplate not only philosophy but such quotidian things as plastic surgery, pets, cell phones, consumerism, and more. The pope’s answers are generous in their length, some being even mini homilies. But all are thoughtful and thought-provoking, of interest and benefit to readers of all ages.”—Booklist (starred review)

Book Short Summary:

The New York Times bestseller that gives readers a paradigm-shattering new way to think about motivation from the author of When: The Scientific Secrets of Perfect Timing Most people believe that the best way to motivate is with rewards like money—the carrot-and-stick approach. That's a mistake, says Daniel H. Pink (author of To Sell Is Human: The Surprising Truth About Motivating Others). In this provocative and persuasive new book, he asserts that the secret to high performance and satisfaction-at work, at school, and at home—is the deeply human need to direct our own lives, to learn and create new things, and to do better by ourselves and our world. Drawing on four decades of scientific research on human motivation, Pink exposes the mismatch between what science knows and what business does—and how that affects every aspect of life. He examines the three elements of true motivation—autonomy, mastery, and purpose-and offers smart and surprising techniques for putting these into action in a unique book that will change how we think and transform how we live.

Book Short Summary:

This book is a systematic and comprehensive treatment of issues involved in philosophical historiography. It deals with such topics as the relation of philosophy to its history, the role of value judgments in historical accounts, the value of the history of philosophy for philosophy, the nature and role of texts and their interpretation in the history of philosophy, historiographical method, and the stages of development of philosophical progress. The book defends two main theses. The first is that the history of philosophy must be done philosophically, that is, it must include philosophical judgments. The second is that one way to bring a rapprochement between Anglo-American and Continental philosophy is through the study of the history of philosophy and its historiography. An extensive bibliography of pertinent materials and detailed indexes close the book.

Book Short Summary:

El relato de la crisis se ha instalado en el discurso contemporáneo como el único marco posible para pensar nuestra actualidad. Ello, por cierto, ni es inocente ni carece de consecuencias: implica una domesticación simbólica y la adscripción a cierta tradición narrativa, en los términos de un relato de evolución o decadencia. La crisis sería un momento de inflexión dentro de ese movimiento más amplio que Reinhardt Koselleck describió como el ciclo "nacimiento-destrucción-muerte-regeneración". Al despejar la operación de naturalización de la crisis, se vuelve necesario y posible cuestionar el origen de este modo de representarla.

"Escribir y leer son cosas extraordinarias, estupendas y maravillosas, siempre y cuando los libros no se conviertan en meros sustitutivos de la inteligencia, la cultura y la ética, es decir, de la vida misma." El amor es imposible como deber. Así como nadie puede obligar a alguien a enamorarse de una persona determinada, nadie puede forzarnos a amar los libros. Un sentimiento así debe surgir de nuestro propio interés. A contracorriente del pragmatismo de las políticas culturales emprendidas por el Estado y de las inflexibles buenas intenciones de muchos promotores del libro y la lectura, Juan Domingo Argüelles nos ofrece en este antimanual un provocador conjunto de reflexiones y propuestas que buscan desmentir la mayoría de las ideas preconcebidas y los mitos que existen hoy en día en torno al fomento de la lectura y la expresión escrita, especialmente entre los adultos que, con sus apremios y exigencias, destruyen el goce de escribir y el placer de leer en las jóvenes generaciones.

Book Short Summary:

Self-help gurus, life coaches and business consultants love to tell us that we must strive for constant self-improvement to realize our full potential and become truly happy. But it doesn't seem to work - for many of us, life still seems hollow and meaningless. So focused are we on personal development and material possessions that we've overlooked the things that make life truly fulfilling and worthwhile. So how do we figure out what's really worth striving for? In this compelling follow-up to his bestselling book Stand Firm, Danish philosopher and psychologist Svend Brinkmann shows us that the important things in life are those with intrinsic value, like goodness, freedom, truth and love. We should stop asking 'what's in it for me?', and turn our attention outwards to our friends, families and communities. By putting others first and embracing these unconditional principles, or standpoints, he argues, we can find a more meaningful and sustainable way of living.

Book Short Summary:

For much of its history, philosophy was not merely a theoretical discipline but a way of life, an "art of living." This practical aspect of philosophy has been much less dominant in modernity than it was in ancient Greece and Rome, when philosophers of all stripes kept returning to Socrates as a model for living. The idea of philosophy as an art of living has survived in the works of such major modern authors as Montaigne, Nietzsche, and Foucault. Each of these writers has used philosophical discussion as a means of establishing what a person is and how a worthwhile life is to be lived. In this wide-ranging, brilliantly written account, Alexander Nehamas provides an incisive reevaluation of Socrates' place in the Western philosophical tradition and shows the importance of Socrates for Montaigne, Nietzsche, and Foucault. Why does each of these philosophers—each fundamentally concerned with his own originality—return to Socrates as a model? The answer lies in the irony that characterizes the Socrates we know from the Platonic dialogues. Socratic irony creates a mask that prevents a view of what lies behind. How Socrates led the life he did, what enabled or inspired him, is never made evident. No tenets are proposed. Socrates remains a silent and ambiguous character, forcing readers to come to their own conclusions about the art of life. This, Nehamas shows, is what allowed Montaigne, Nietzsche, and Foucault to return to Socrates as a model without thereby compelling them to imitate him. This highly readable, erudite study argues for the importance of the tradition within Western philosophy that is best described as "the art of living" and casts Montaigne, Nietzsche, and Foucault as the three major modern representatives of this tradition. Full of original ideas and challenging associations, this work will offer new ways of thinking about the philosophers Nehamas discusses and about the discipline of philosophy itself.

Book Short Summary:

The 1980s and early 1990s have seen a marked increase in public interest in our historic environment. The museum and heritage industry has expanded as the past is exploited for commercial profit. In The Representation of the Past, Kevin Walsh examines this international trend and questions the packaging of history which serves only to distance people from their own heritage. A superficial, unquestioning portrayal of the past, he feels, separates us from an understanding of our cultural and political present. Here, Walsh suggests a number of ways in which the museum can fulfill its potential - by facilitating our comprehension of cultural identity.

Book Short Summary:

In this cogent and accessible introduction to philosophy, the distinguished author of Mortal Questions and The View From Nowhere sets forth the central problems of philosophical inquiry for the beginning student. Arguing that the best way to learn about philosophy is to think about its questions directly, Thomas Nagel considers possible solutions to nine problems--knowledge of the world beyond our minds, knowledge of other minds, the mind-body problem, free will, the basis of morality, right and wrong, the nature of death, the meaning of life, and the meaning of words. Although he states his own opinions clearly, Nagel leaves these fundamental questions open, allowing students to entertain other solutions and encouraging them to think for themselves.

Book Short Summary:

This major collection explores the contested nature of love and eroticism, examining the ways in which erotic bodily pleasures have become central to contemporary consumer culture. It investigates the spatial dimension of erotic life through considerations of Bohemian love, the gay city and the ways in which the urban landscape and everyday life have become sexualized - issues which have become central to the emergence of `queer' as a new form of gender politics and more general questions of sexual citizenship. Drawing on the work of feminists, sociologists and cultural theorists, this book contains a wide-ranging and accessible set of contributions to contemporary debates on sexuality, love and eroticism. Love & Eroticism is simultaneously published as volume 15, issue 3-4 of Theory, Culture & Society.

Book Short Summary:

Since its publication in 1994, Richard McKirahan's Philosophy Before Socrates has become the standard sourcebook in Presocratic philosophy. It provides a wide survey of Greek science, metaphysics, and moral and political philosophy, from their roots in myth to the philosophers and Sophists of the fifth century. A comprehensive selection of fragments and testimonia, translated by the author, is presented in the context of a thorough and accessible discussion. An introductory chapter deals with the sources of Presocratic and Sophistic texts and the special problems of interpretation they present. In its second edition, this work has been updated and expanded to reflect important new discoveries and the most recent scholarship. Changes and additions have been made throughout, the most significant of which are found in the chapters on the Pythagoreans, Parmenides, Zeno, Anaxagoras, and Empedocles, and the new chapter on Philolaus. The translations of some passages have been revised, as have some interpretations and discussions. A new Appendix provides translations of three Hippocratic writings and the Derveni papyrus.

Book Short Summary:

A cheeky, sophisticated, and strikingly illustrated guide that leaves generic English reference books in the dust When prominent Barcelona-based illustrator Luci Gutiérrez found herself tuning out in English class, she used her love of drawing to help retain what she’d learned. Ditching the kind of bland and useless phrases that fill most English textbooks, Gutiérrez uses whimsical characters, cheeky dialogue, and even insults to bring vocabulary, grammar, and usage topics to life. Nearly forty-seven million people in the United States speak a language other than English at home, and even most native speakers struggle with subtle distinctions, such as when to use “whether” as opposed to “if.” (For example: I wonder whether I should have added a little more poison to his tea.) Already published to wide acclaim abroad, English Is Not Easy is sure to delight grammar mavens and students of English in America.

Book Short Summary:

La abundancia de libros de autoayuda, superación personal, desarrollo humano, o como usted quiera llamarle, debería considerarse un índice alarmante de la vida moderna. Cada vez más personas buscan quién les muestre el camino correcto y los saque del agujero en el que creen encontrarse. ¿Qué estará sucediendo con la gente? Parece que el ritmo frenético de la civilización les ha reducido la capacidad de valerse por sí mismos y los ha hundido en una mediocridad tal que se ven orillados a hurgar respuestas inmediatas por doquier. Aunque este libro pueda causarle desconcierto, poco a poco irá dándose cuenta del valor de su contenido. No hay más que tranquilizarse y soportar sus páginas llenas de realidades, las mismas que usted se ha pasado evadiendo. Toledo pone el dedo sobre la llaga abierta y socava hasta las entrañas, le cuelga de los ojos estas palabras: “Los hombres somos unos perdedores por naturaleza y nos pasamos la vida intentando ocultarlo” (Luigi Amara).

Book Short Summary:

A obra Semiótica, Direito & Arte traz em seu interior uma contribuição original à análise da relação entre Direito & Arte. Ao se propor a um empreendimento interdisciplinar, a obra valoriza a sensibilidade artística, e coloca o Direito em relação com a Pintura, a Arquitetura, a Literatura e o Teatro, e procura analisar obras concretas. A proposta de fazer migrar o olhar sensível das artes para o olhar dos juristas procura acentuar a percepção humanizada das tarefas de Justiça e Cidadania. A obra está dividida em duas partes e procura explorar o tema a partir da categoria filosófica da experiência artística, debruçando-se de forma reflexiva e criativa sobre o universo simbólico do Direito. O método de abordagem dos temas é a Semiótica do Direito, em conexão com a Semiótica da Arte, dentro da perspectiva da École de Paris, voltando-se para a análise dos traços simbólicos da Justiça, procurando-se acuidade de percepção daquele que corresponde ao valor central da área do Direito.
