In The Waters of Eternal Youth, the twenty-fifth instalment in the bestselling Brunetti series, our Commissario finds himself drawn into a case that may not be a crime at all. Brunetti is investigating a cold case by request of the grand Contessa Lando-Continui, a friend of Brunetti's mother-in-law. Fifteen years ago the Contessa's teenage granddaughter, Manuela, was found drowning in a canal. She was rescued from the canal at the last moment, but in many ways it was too late; she suffered severe brain damage and her life was never the same again. Once a passionate horse rider, Manuela, now aged thirty, cannot remember the accident, or her beloved horse, and lives trapped in an eternal youth. The Contessa, unconvinced that this was an accident, implores Brunetti to find the culprit she believes was responsible for ruining Manuela's life. Out of a mixture of curiosity, pity and a willingness to fulfil the wishes of a loving grandmother, Brunetti reopens the case. But once he starts to investigate, Brunetti finds a murky past and a dark story at its heart. The Waters of Eternal Youth is awash in the rhythms and concerns of contemporary Venetian life, from historical preservation, to housing, to new waves of African migrants, all circling the haunting story of a woman trapped in a perpetual childhood.

James R. Carey Longevity. The Biology and Demography of Life Span

9402 руб.
Despite our deep interest in mortality, little is known about why some individuals live to middle age and others to extreme old age. Life span, mortality, and aging present some of the most profound mysteries in biology. In Longevity, James Carey draws on unprecedented data to develop a biological and demographic framework for identifying the key factors that govern aging, life span, and mortality in humans and other animals. Carey presents the results of a monumental, twelve-year, National Institute on Aging-funded research project on the determinants of longevity using data from the life tables of five million Mediterranean fruit flies, the most comprehensive set of life table studies ever on the mortality dynamics of a single species. He interprets the fruit fly data within the context of human aging and the aging process in general to identify the determinants of mortality. Three key themes emerge: the absence of species-specific life span limits, the context-specific nature of the mortality rate, and biodemographic linkages between longevity and reproduction. A powerful foundation for the emerging field of biodemography and a rich framework for considering the future of human life span, Longevity will be an indispensable resource for readers from a range of fields including population biology, demography, gerontology, ecology, evolutionary biology, and medical research.

Peter C. Phan Living Into Death, Dying Into Life. A Christian Theology of Death and Life Eternal

2802 руб.
Peter C. Phan, noted for his theological exploration of the afterlife, presents an easily understood study of what eternal life means from a Catholic/Christian view. In Living Into Death, Dying Into Life: A Christian Theology of Death and Life Eternal Professor Phan elaborates and expands material first presented in twelve lectures. Drawing heavily from the Christian Tradition, Phan identifies sections in the Old Testament and especially the New Testament that are relevant to eschatology, which is the search for an understanding of God's final kingdom. Seen in the preaching of Jesus as presented in the Gospels, the Kingdom of God is both here now and also fulfilled at the end of time. Professor Phan is able to connect Scriptural representations of the afterlife with the ramifications of eternal life in our present everyday life. This book is intended for audiences seeking to understand the death of a loved one, an impending death, or death in general; as well as those who are seeking a general spiritual or theological understanding of eternal life as presented by Jesus Christ.

The Eternal Husband

When the rich land owner Velchaninov arrives in St Petersburg, he receives a surprise visit from an old acquaintance, Trusotsky, who has been recently widowed. His late wife, Natalia, was the secret lover of Velchaninov, who realizes that the young child accompanying Trusotsky is his natural daughter. From then on, the destinies of the two men become intertwined as they engage - at turns repelled and attracted by each other - in a dangerous game of cat and mouse that will lead to a final dramatic confrontation. Compelling, gripping, darkly humorous, The Eternal Husband - composed by the author at the peak of his writing powers, between The Idiot and Devils, and described by Dostoevsky's biographer Joseph Frank as 'a small masterpiece' - shows Dostoevsky at his best as a ruthless dissector of the quirks and foibles of the human character.

2638.81 руб.
The Upside of Aging: How Long Life Is Changing the World of Health, Work, Innovation, Policy and Purpose explores a titanic shift that will alter every aspect of human existence, from the jobs we hold to the products we buy to the medical care we receive – an aging revolution underway across America and the world. Moving beyond the stereotypes of dependency and decline that have defined older age, The Upside of Aging reveals the vast opportunity and potential of this aging phenomenon, despite significant policy and societal challenges that must be addressed. The book’s chapter authors, all prominent thought-leaders, point to a reinvention and reimagination of our older years that have critical implications for people of all ages. With a positive call to action, the book illuminates the upside for health and wellness, work and volunteerism, economic growth, innovation and education. The authors, like the baby boom generation itself, posit new ways of thinking about aging, as longevity and declining birthrates put the world on track for a mature population of unprecedented size and significance. Among topics they examine are: The emotional intelligence and qualities of the aging brain that science is uncovering, “senior moments” notwithstanding. The new worlds of genomics, medicine and technology that are revolutionizing health care and wellness. The aging population’s massive impact on global markets, with enormous profit potential from an explosion in products and services geared toward mature consumers. New education paradigms to meet the needs and aspirations of older people, and to capitalize on their talents. The benefits that aging workers and entrepreneurs bring to companies, and the crucial role of older people in philanthropy and society. Tools and policies to facilitate financial security for longer and more purposeful lives. Infrastructure and housing changes to create livable cities for all ages, enabling “aging in place” and continuing civic contribution from millions of older adults. The opportunities and potential for intergenerational engagement and collaboration. The Upside of Aging defines a future that differs profoundly from the retirement dreams of our parents and grandparents, one that holds promise and power and bears the stamp of a generation that has changed every stage of life through which it has moved.

Much has been written about dying with dignity, but how about living with dignity through the latter years of our lives? For many senior adults, this season of life is not always considered the “golden years”. More critical than the physical effects of aging are those related to the psycho-social realm. Aging adults often feel isolated, rejected, and useless. Their lives seem void of purpose and meaning. As a result, many older adults may suffer from depression. This book explores the topic of aging in terms of living with purpose and passion despite declining health, loss of loved ones, and changes in life situations. The book follows the lives of five “senior” cheerleaders, who have found purpose, meaning, and passion in later life through a sport not typically associated with older adulthood. Each of the five exuberate the true spirit of athleticism.

Between states... no punitive war is thinkable because between them a relation of superior and inferior does not exist. Whence it follows that a war of extermination, where the process of annihilation would strike both parties at once and all right as well, would bring out perpetual peace only in the great graveyard of the human race.-from "Perpetual Peace"One of the most influential thinkers of the Western civilization, a man who profoundly shaped the mind-set of the modern world, examines war and human nature and concludes, bracingly, that global peace is inevitable. Far from an unattainable utopian fantasy, this 1795 essay lays out the requirements for peace, including republican governments, freedom of movement for citizens, and-prophetically-the formation of a league of nations. In this era of imperialistic ambitions and preemptive wars, Kant's insight is a profound reminder that peace is possible but must be actively pursued.Also available from Cosimo Classics: Kant's Analytic of the Beautiful and Perpetual Peace.German metaphysician IMMANUEL KANT (1724-1804) served as a librarian of the Royal Library, a prestigious government position, and as a professor at Königsberg University. His other works include Observations on the Feeling of the Beautiful and Sublime (1764), Critique of Pure Reason (1781), and Groundwork of the Metaphysics of Morals (1785).

Being of borderlands, my life, politics, and identity are divided. Sometimes the divide makes me feel whole; sometimes it empties me. Todo Revoluciona questions my existence and purpose, and the politics that have shaped my perpetual questioning in the first place. Patriarchal structures, cultural norms, racism and discrimination, anti-immigrant sentiments, and other systems of control have me in a bind, and I explore a way out.Beyond my personal life, my artwork and poetry point to the harsh reality many face as they are burdened with the struggle of having to balance life in the in-between—in between two cultures, two countries. The poems in this book also allude to the suffering of the people harmed by anti-immigration rhetoric. For those seeking safety, Todo Revoluciona is a gentle hand on their shoulder, letting them know they are not alone on this journey toward belonging.

C. G. Jung, Beatrice Hinkle Psychology of the Unconscious

1489 руб.
2016 Reprint of 1922 Edition. Full facsimile of the original edition, not reproduced with Optical Recognition Software. The book illustrates a theoretical divergence between Jung and Freud on the nature of the libido, and its publication led to a break in the friendship between the two men, both stating that the other was unable to admit he could possibly be wrong. According to Jung, his work is an "extended commentary on a practical analysis of the prodromal stages of schizophrenia" (Jung, [1956] 1967: xxv). The analysis is of the Miller Fantasies. These are fantasies of Miss Frank Miller, an American woman Jung did not know, whose writings he had encountered in the work of Théodore Flournoy. In “Psychology of the Unconscious,” Jung seeks a symbolic meaning and purpose behind a given set of symptoms, placing them within the larger context of the psyche. The text examines the fantasies of a patient whose poetic and vivid mental images helped Jung redefine libido as psychic energy, arising from the unconscious and manifesting itself consciously in symbolic form. Jung's commentary on his patient's fantasies offers a complex study of symbolic psychiatry and foreshadows his development of the theory of collective unconscious and its constituents, the archetypes.

The Upside of Aging: How Long Life Is Changing the World of Health, Work, Innovation, Policy and Purpose explores a titanic shift that will alter every aspect of human existence, from the jobs we hold to the products we buy to the medical care we receive – an aging revolution underway across America and the world. Moving beyond the stereotypes of dependency and decline that have defined older age, The Upside of Aging reveals the vast opportunity and potential of this aging phenomenon, despite significant policy and societal challenges that must be addressed. The book’s chapter authors, all prominent thought-leaders, point to a reinvention and reimagination of our older years that have critical implications for people of all ages. With a positive call to action, the book illuminates the upside for health and wellness, work and volunteerism, economic growth, innovation and education. The authors, like the baby boom generation itself, posit new ways of thinking about aging, as longevity and declining birthrates put the world on track for a mature population of unprecedented size and significance. Among topics they examine are: The emotional intelligence and qualities of the aging brain that science is uncovering, “senior moments” notwithstanding. The new worlds of genomics, medicine and technology that are revolutionizing health care and wellness. The aging population’s massive impact on global markets, with enormous profit potential from an explosion in products and services geared toward mature consumers. New education paradigms to meet the needs and aspirations of older people, and to capitalize on their talents. The benefits that aging workers and entrepreneurs bring to companies, and the crucial role of older people in philanthropy and society. Tools and policies to facilitate financial security for longer and more purposeful lives. Infrastructure and housing changes to create livable cities for all ages, enabling “aging in place” and continuing civic contribution from millions of older adults. The opportunities and potential for intergenerational engagement and collaboration. The Upside of Aging defines a future that differs profoundly from the retirement dreams of our parents and grandparents, one that holds promise and power and bears the stamp of a generation that has changed every stage of life through which it has moved.
