Didier Maleuvre argues that works of art in Western societies from Ancient Greece to the interconnected worlds of the Digital Age have served to rationalize and normalize an engagement with bourgeois civilization and the city. Maleuvre details that the history of art itself is the history civilization, giving rise to the particular aesthetics and critical attitudes of respective moments and movements in changing civilizations in a dialogical mode. Building a visual cultural account of shifting forms of culture, power, and subjectivity, Maleuvre illustrates how art gave a pattern and a language to the model of social authority rather than simply functioning as a reflective one. Through a broad cultural study of the relationship between humanity, art, and the culture of civilization, Maleuvre introduces a new set of paradigms that critique and affirm the relationship between humanity and art, arguing for it as an engine of social reproduction that transforms how culture is inhabited.
Earth is the first in a seven volume series that lovingly guides readers on a journey from the painful existence in which ego rules into the pleasure of being one's true Self. Going on this voyage convincingly shows how divine we really are.
Called The Human Hologram, this long awaited series from internationally known author and rational mystic, Otto Richter, navigates us through the twists, turns, and ups and downs of spiritual growth-with startling success! Dancing on the edge between science and the sacred, the profound and the profane, he leads readers through his empowering holographic model of the human psyche, initiating us into new dimensions of mystical power. With remarkable tools that bypass any particular religious dogma, we are shown how to connect to extraordinary physical vitality, mental clarity, emotional stability and spiritual awareness.
The series embraces the best of humanistic, transpersonal, and research-based psychology and combines it with fundamental aspects of archaic shamanism, energetic bodywork, and a hefty dose of humor. Richter eloquently infuses the teachings of his spiritual mentors, as well as his own mystical insights. Outstanding findings in the neurosciences are also revealed that, now more than ever, explain how our brain chemistry is involved. Plus, a guided meditation (also available as a digital-audio download) offers a deeper, more refined experience of each volume.
The Earth of The Human Hologram represents the very source of our life energy. It is the aspect of the human psyche that provides us with the strength, nourishment, and passion we need to grow into our full potential.
In this volume of the set, we'll learn how to sink our roots deeply into that fertile soil and efficiently tap into the source of the Life Force.

This book aims to be the first comprehensive exposition of "mindful journalism"-drawn from core Buddhist ethical principles-as a fresh approach to journalism ethics. It suggests that Buddhist mindfulness strategies can be applied purposively in journalism to add clarity, fairness and equity to news decision-making and to offer a moral compass to journalists facing ethical dilemmas in their work. It comes at a time when ethical values in the news media are in crisis from a range of technological, commercial and social factors, and when both Buddhism and mindfulness have gained considerable acceptance in Western societies. Further, it aims to set out foundational principles to assist journalists dealing with vulnerable sources and recovering from traumatic assignments.
