I and Thou

By: Martin Bube

Tms work in its oripl, German form has already, since its publication fourteen years ago, exercised. on the Continent an influence, quite out of proportion to its slender size. In view of this influence alone it may be affirmed that 1 and Thou will rank &8 one of the epoch-making books 9f our generation. It has hitherto been eomparatively Unknown among English-speaking students of philosophy and theology.

The primal natm:e of the effort to establish relation is already to be seen in the earliest and most confined stage. Before anything isolated can be perceived, timid glances mOve out into indistinct space, towards something indefinite; and in times when there seems to be no desire for nourishment, hands sketch delicately and dimly in the empty air, apparently aimlessly seeking and reaching out to meet something indefinite. You may, if you wish, call this an animal acti...

Sextus Empiricus and Greek Scepticism

By: Mary Mills Patrick

The following treatise on Sextus Empiricus and Greek Scepticism has been prepared to supply a need much felt in the English language by students of Greek philosophy. For while other schools of Greek philosophy have been exhaustively and critically discussed by English scholars, there are few sources of information available to the student who wishes to make himself familiar with the teachings of Pyrrhonism. The aim has been, accordingly, to give a concise presentation of...

“Interest has revived in the works of Sextus Empiricus in recent times, especially, one may say, since the date of Herbart. There is much in the writings of Sextus that finds a parallel in the methods of modern philosophy. There is a common starting-point in the study of the power and limitations of human thought. There is a common desire to investigate the phenomena of sense-perception, and the genetic relations of man to the lower animals, and a common interest in the ...

A Dictionary of the Hawaiian Language

By: Lorrin Andrews

It was the intention of the author of this volume to make some extended remarks concerning the character, peculiarities and extent of the hawaiian language, by way of preface or introduction; but the want of physical strength, and especially of mental energy, has induced him to forego such an attempt and be contented with a mere history of the manner in which this dictionary has come into existence. The history of hawaiian lexicography is short.

Hawaiian is but a dialect of the great Polynesian language, which is spoken with extraordinary uniformity over all the numerous islands of the Pacific Ocean between New Zealand and Hawaii. Again, the Polynesian language is but one member of that wide-spread family of languages, known as the Malayo-Polynesian or Oceanic family, which extends from Madagascar to the Hawaiian Islands, and from New Zealand to Formosa. The Hawaiian dialect is peculiarly interesting to the...

Frate Cu Meridianele Si Paralelele, Vol. 2

By: Florentin Smarandache

Vizitam mina Queen din oraselul asezat între dealuri, dar cochet, Bisbee. N-am stiut ca pe la începutul secolului Bisbee era cea mai mare localitate din Arizona (datorita mineritului). Mergem cu masina lui Ely, MAZDA ’84 – are deja peste 120.000 de mile la bord. Mina Queen a fost deschisa în 1917, în 1920 electrificata, în 1941 închisa, iar în 1975 refacuta pentru turisti. E grea viata sub pamânt! Nesigura, umezeala, întuneric. Intram la 500 de picioare adâncime pe o lun...

Essays

By: Michel Eyquem de Montaigne

(Author to reader)--Reader, loe here a well-meaning Booke. It doth at the first entrance forewarne thee, that in contriving the same I have proposed unto my selfe no other than a familiar and private end: I have no respect or consideration at all, either to thy service, or to my glory: my forces are not capable of any such desseigne. I have vowed the same to the particular commodity of my kinsfolk and friends: to the end, that losing me (which they are likely to do ere...

They have a secret, unperceived and delicate beauty; he had neede of a cleere, farreseeing and true-discerning sight that should rightly discover this secret light. Is not ingenuity (according to us) cosin germaine unto sottishnesse, and a quality of reproach? Socrates maketh his soule to moove, with a naturall and common motion. Thus saith a plaine Country-man, and thus a seely Woman: Hee never hath other people in his mouth than Coach-makers, Joyners, Coblers, and Masons.

Encyclopedie

By: Denis Diderot

This book is a universal dictionary of arts and sciences. It contains the definitions of the terms in several arts, liberal and mechanical, and also several sciences.

A’Ohe Inoa Komo ‘Ole O Ke ‘Ai

By: William H. Wilson

The internationally known ‘Aha Punana Leo, Inc. is a non-profit organization which was established in 1983 to revitalize the nearly extinct Hawaiian language and establish schools taught entirely through that language. The following year, the organization founded the first Punana Leo school which was also the first Native American language immersion school in the United States. After the Punana Leo families changed an 1896 law banning Hawaiian language schools, the Punan...

Kula Kaiapuni Hawai’i is usually a stream of classes within an English medium school. While children in the English medium classes often admire the ability to speak Hawaiian, they also sometimes tease Kula Kaiapuni Hawai’i students for being different. Although all children tease each other, being teased while in a minority position requires some positive support. This book was written in response to parents' requests for help in dealing with a true-life situation: the d...

The Malignan Self Love : Narcissism Revisited

By: Sam Vaknin

When the personality is rigid to the point of being unable to change in reaction to changing circumstances - we say that it is disordered. Such a person takes behavioral, emotional, and cognitive cues exclusively from others. His inner world is, so to speak, vacated. His True Self is dilapidated and dysfunctional. Instead he has a tyrannical and delusional False Self. Such a person is incapable of loving and of living. He cannot love others because he cannot love himself...

La Mirinda Sorcisto de Oz

By: L. Frank Baum

Folkloro, legendoj, mitoj kaj fe-rakontoj estis parto de la infaneco dum la tuta historio, car ciu sana infano havas bonkarakteran kaj instinktan amon al rakontoj fantaziaj, mirindaj kaj evidente malrealaj. La flugilhavaj feoj de Grimm kaj Andersen alportis pli da feliceco al la koroj de infanoj ol ciuj aliaj homkreajoj.

La Magio de Oz

Iom kurioze, en la eventoj kiuj okazis dum la pasintaj kelkaj jaroj en nia “granda ekstera mondo”, ni povas trovi eventojn tiom mirigajn kaj inspirajn ke mi ne povas esperi egaligi ilin per rakontoj pri la Lando Oz. Tamen, “La Magio de Oz” vere estas pli stranga kaj nekutima ol io ajn kion mi legis au priaudis niaflanke de La Granda Sabla Dezerto kiu kasas de ni La Landon Oz, ec dum la jusaj ekscitaj jaroj, do mi esperas ke gi allogos vian amon je noveco.
