English | 2013 | ISBN: 0199938709, 0199938725 | 416 Pages | PDF | 4,6 MB Within most pre-modern, Indian traditions of yoga, the role of the guru is absolutely central. Indeed, it was often understood that yoga would simply not work without the grace of the guru. The modern period saw the dawn of new, democratic, scientific modes of yoga practice and teaching. While teachings and gurus have always adapted to the times and circumstances, the sheer pace of cultural change ushered in by modernity has led to some unprecedented innovations in the way gurus present themselves and their teachings, and the way they are received by their students. Gurus of Modern Yoga explores the contributions of individual gurus to the formation of the practices and discourses of yoga today. The focus is not limited to India, but also extends to the teachings of yoga gurus in the modern, transnational world, and within the Hindu diaspora.

The Spirit of Cities revives the classical idea that a city expresses its own distinctive ethos or values. In the ancient world, Athens was synonymous with democracy and Sparta represented military discipline. In this original and engaging book, Daniel Bell and Avner de-Shalit explore how this classical idea can be applied to today's cities, and they explain why philosophy and the social sciences need to rediscover the spirit of cities.

Bell and de-Shalit look at nine modern cities and the prevailing ethos that distinguishes each one. The Spirit of Cities is unreservedly impressionistic.

Non luogo a procedere è la storia di un grottesco Museo della violenza, delle sue sale e delle sue armi ognuna delle quali racconta vicende d'amore e delirio, e dell'uomo che sacrifica la vita alla sua maniacale costruzione; è la storia di una donna erede dell'esilio ebraico e della schiavitù dei neri; è la storia del mistero di un delitto rimosso tra le mura del forno crematorio nazista della Risiera di San Sabba, a Trieste.
