Hanbook of UV Degradation and Stabilization


Okładka książki: Hanbook of UV Degradation and Stabilization


Hanbook of UV Degradation and Stabilization. Ed. George Wypych. ChemTec Publishing, 2011. ISBN 978-1-895198-46- 1

“Humans protected themselves from sunrise from the beginning of the history of the human race but the first known protective chemical composition was found in Ancient Egypt, where mascara was commonly used. Initially, it was thought of as a method of beautification […] but it was later conformed that the purpose was to absorb reflected radiation. […] More contemporary is the history of UV stabilizers that we use today. […] The first application of benzotriazole stabilizer was a year later in the prevention of yellowing of polystyrene.”

The Dark Side of Creativity


Okładka książki: The Dark Side of Creativity


The Dark Side of Creativity. Ed. by David H. Cropley, Arthur J. Cropley, James C. Kaufman, Mark A, Runco. New York. Cambridge University Press, 2010. ISBN 978-0-521-13960-1

“This is one of the most important books on creativity to be published over the last twenty years; its list of editors and contributors stands for high-quality chapters. With the dark side illuminated from many different facets, a vastly neglected aspect of creativity has been opened for scholarly discussion. The volume offers an inspiring source and starting point for further research, bringing together a still broader range of disciplines – since all realms and areas of human thinking and acting owe their benevolent, and malevolent, progress to creative persons, be it scientists, artist, politicians, or engineers. Deep insights and knowledge about the dark side of creativity as provided here may help to generally develop more responsibility and more wisdom in dealing with creative motives, actions, processes, and products in the interest of a more humane human cultural evolution.”
Klaus K. Urban, Leibniz University of Hannover, Germany

The Philosophy of Sex and Love: an Introduction


Okładka książki: The Philosophy of Sex and Love: an Introduction


Alan Soble. The Philosophy of Sex and Love: an Introduction. Second Edition. Paragon House, 2008. ISBN 978-1-55778- 875-7

“Alan Soble’s book is a wonderfully rich, engaging, humane, witty, literate, but above all, philosophically rigorous study of love and sex. It offers an impeccably fair-minded and comprehensive guide to what is now an extensive and very varied philosophical literature on these subjects. Soble provides a judicious and intelligent appraisal of the many claims made about gender, sexual perversion, marriage, and eternal love by a long and not always distinguished line of conservatives, liberals, and feminists without losing either his sense of balance or of humor.”
David Archard, Professor of Philosophy and Public Policy, Lancaster University

The Pursuit of Unhappiness


Okładka książki: The Pursuit of Unhappiness


Daniel M. Haybron. The Pursuit of Unhappiness: The Elusive Psychology of Well-Being. Oxford. Oxford University Press, 2008. ISBN 978-0-19-959246-3

“Dan Haybron has written the definitive psychological book on happiness, and it is a must-read for all scholars of the good life. The work is broad, balanced, and interesting, and yet forcefully presents the case that happiness is a crucial element of good living. In making the argument, Haybron beautifully reviews both the philosophy of happiness, including what this concept means, and the empirical work on the topic arising in fields such as psychology and economics.”
David Chalmers, Australian National University

Freud and the Far East


Okładka książki: Freud and the Far East


Freud and the Far East: Psychoanalytic Perspectives on the People and Culture of China, Japan, and Korea. Ed. by Salman Akhtar. Jason Aronson, 2009. ISBN 978-0-7657-0693-5

“In Freud and the Far East, distinguished psychoanalysts from East and West provide meticulous historical accounts of the development of psychoanalysis in Japan, Korea, and China. The contributors to the book discuss the depth-psychological concepts of amae and wa, the Ajase complex, and the filial piety complex, underscoring the intricate interplay of drive and ego development with powerful forces of ancestral legacies and their attendant myths and fantasies. The book offers insights into the psychosocial trials and tribulations of the immigrant populations from the countries and their Western-born offspring. Implications of such understanding for the conduct of psychotherapy and psychoanalysis are also discussed.”

Logica dell’altro: Heidegger e Platone


Okładka książki: Logica dell’altro: Heidegger e Platone


Rosalia Peluso. Logica dell’altro: Heidegger e Platone. Napoli. Giannini, 2008. ISBN 978-88-7431-409-6

Sotto l’idea di una “logica dell’altro” l’autrice raccoglie il senso complessico della lettura che Heidegger ha compiuto di Platone, attraverso l’analisi di alcuni corsi universitari e saggi degli anni Venti e Trenta. La figura del platonismo, divenuta archetipo della modalitá metafisica del pensare, e stata troppo spesso assunta come luogo commune del confronto heideggeriano con il pensatore antico, che e ben piu complesso e problematico.

Slaves of the Passions


Okładka książki: Slaves of the Passions


M. Schroeder. Slaves of the Passions. Oxford. Oxford University Press, 2007. ISBN 978-0-19-957572-5

“Slaves of Passions is a tour de force. Schroeder has achieved the most sophisticated and resourceful defense of the Humean theory of practical reasons I know. In addition, he clarifies the debate by bringing our controversial suppressed premises that have confused previous discussion. A remarkably creative and insightful book.”
Stephen Darwall, University of Michigan
