The Spell Of The Sensuous

by David Abram, release date 2012-10-17, The Spell Of The Sensuous Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download The Spell Of The Sensuous books, Winner of the International Lannan Literary Award for Nonfiction Animal tracks, word magic, the speech of stones, the power of letters, and the taste of the wind all figure prominently in this intellectual tour de force that returns us to our senses and to the sensuous terrain that sustains us. This major work of ecological philosophy startles the senses out of habitual ways of perception. For a thousand generations, human beings viewed themselves as part of the wider community of nature, and they carried on active relationships not only with other people with other animals, plants, and natural objects (including mountains, rivers, winds, and weather patters) that we have only lately come to think of as "inanimate." How, then, did humans come to sever their ancient reciprocity with the natural world? What will it take for us to recover a sustaining relation with the breathing earth? In The Spell of the Sensuous David Abram draws on sources as diverse as the philosophy of Merleau-Ponty, Balinese shamanism, Apache storytelling, and his own experience as an accomplished sleight-of-hand of magician to reveal the subtle dependence of human cognition on the natural environment. He explores the character of perception and excavates the sensual foundations of language, which--even at its most abstract--echoes the calls and cries of the earth. On every page of this lyrical work, Abram weaves his arguments with a passion, a precision, and an intellectual daring that recall such writers as Loren Eisleley, Annie Dillard, and Barry Lopez.

Becoming Animal

by David Abram, release date 2010-08-24, Becoming Animal Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Becoming Animal books, David Abram’s first book, The Spell of the Sensuous has become a classic of environmental literature. Now he returns with a startling exploration of our human entanglement with the rest of nature. As the climate veers toward catastrophe, the innumerable losses cascading through the biosphere make vividly evident the need for a metamorphosis in our relation to the living land. For too long we’ve ignored the wild intelligence of our bodies, taking our primary truths from technologies that hold the living world at a distance. Abram’s writing subverts this distance, drawing readers ever closer to their animal senses in order to explore, from within, the elemental kinship between the human body and the breathing Earth. The shape-shifting of ravens, the erotic nature of gravity, the eloquence of thunder, the pleasures of being edible: all have their place in this book.

After Debussy

by Julian Johnson, release date 2020-01-30, After Debussy Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download After Debussy books, Classical music shows a close relationship to language, and both musicology and philosophy have tended to approach music from that angle, exploring it in terms of expression, representation, and discourse. This book turns that idea on its head. Focusing on the music of Debussy and its legacy in the century since his death, After Debussy offers a groundbreaking new perspective on twentieth-century music that foregrounds a sensory logic of sound over quasi-linguistic ideas of structure or meaning. Author Julian Johnson argues that Debussy's music exemplifies this idea, influencing the music of successive composers who took up the mantle of emphasizing sound over syntax, sense over signification. In doing so, this music not only anticipates a central problem of contemporary thought--the gap between language and our embodied relation to the world--but also offers a solution. With a readable narrative structure grounded in an impressive body of literature, After Debussy ranges widely across French music, demonstrating the impact of Debussy's music on composers from Faur� and Ravel to Dutilleux, Boulez, Grisey, Murail and Saariaho. It ranges similarly through a set of French writers and philosophers, from Mallarm� and Proust to Merleau-Ponty, Jank�l�vitch, Derrida, Lyotard and Nancy, and even draws from the visual arts to help embody key ideas. In accessibly tackling substantial ideas of both musicology and philosophy, this book not only presents bold new ways of understanding each discipline but also lays the groundwork for exciting new discourse between them.

Lyric Ecology

by Mark Dickinson, release date 2010, Lyric Ecology Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Lyric Ecology books, What would you have if you had the p layful intricacy of Mozart, the intultive rigour of Wittgenstein, and John Muir'slove of the earth? You would have the poetry of Jan Zwicky---Roo Borson In Lyric Ecology editor's Mark Dicknson and Clare Goulet have assembled a marvelous set of mediations' on the work of the unique poet philosopher and intellectual pioneer Jan Zwicky, Trained as an analytic philosopher and a brilliant Wittgenstenian Zwicky as the poet's ability to question her own assertions at every step showing us that everything we see could also be otherswise. In keeping with the spirit of difference and complexity tht is Zwicky's the contributors chosen come from a wide variety of fields and positions and their essays offer brilliant insights into Zwicky's oeuvre as well as into the larger question, what is a poetics today and how does it relate to philosophy, to anthropology and to the life sciences? A genuinely, provocative and timely book.---Marjorie Perloff author of Wittgenstein's Ladder Poetic language and the Strangenes of the Ordinary; Professor of merita of English and Comparative Literature Stanford University Where of one cannot speak there of one must be silent or so we have heard. Perhaps however, there are ways of spekaing that do not break the silence, but rather invite the silence itself to come to voice. Jan Zwicky is an exquisite poet-philosopher with a classical musician's feel for the rhythm and melody through her as she thinks and dreams. Her pellucid craft has nourished wordsmiths in many fields: some of their voices conjoin in this wonderful book tatisman of earthly intelligence.---David Abram, author of the Spell of the Sensuous and Becoming Animal. "The gift of lyric is to see the whole in the particular; and in so doing, to bring the preciousness, which is the losability, of the world, into clear focus." So says Jan Zwicky, a musician, philosopher, and poet whose eleven books redefine thinking as not only reasoned analysis but perception, remembering, astonishment, emotion, the connection of this to that. In doing so, they remind us how the play of thought is central to being human. These works have lifted her to the heights of several fields. In a single year she was a finalist for the Governor General's Literary Awards in two categories: non-fiction (philosophy) for Wisdom & Metaphor and poetry for Robinson's Crossing. She received the award in 1999 for Songs for Relinquishing the Earth. Her seminal Lyric Philosophy (1992) has just been released in a new edition (2010), and her influence on Canadian philosophy is immense. Lyric Ecology: An Appreciation of the Work of Jan Zwicky is the first formal measure of her work and a testament to her influence. With original contributions from poets, musicians, philosophers, and colleagues, this collection illuminates many particular angles in the unique geometry of her thought. New readers and old will be amazed by the grace and clarity of her thinking
