An ingenious Yankee mechanic, knocked unconscious in a fight, awakens to find himself in Camelot in 528 A.D. Imprisoned by Sir Kay the Seneschal and exhibited before the knights of the Round Table, he is condemned to death but saves himself by posing as a Merlin-like magician, correctly predicting an eclipse, and becoming a minister to King Arthur. He increases his power by applying 19th century knowledge of gunpowder, electricity, and industrial methods. However, when he attempts to better the condition of the peasantry, he meets opposition from the church, the knights, Merlin, and the sorceress Morgan le Fay. 1. Language: English.

The hit on the head that sends Hank Morgan back through 13 centuries does not affect his natural resourcefulness. Using his knowledge of an upcoming eclipse, Hank escapes a death sentence, and secures an important position at court. Gradually, he introduces 19th century technology and soon has an easy life. He becomes "The Boss" of the Kingdom, second only to the King. That does not stop him from making a disparaging remark which touches off an incredible series of events. Twain weaves many of the well-known Arthurian characters into his story, and includes a pitched battle between Morgan's men and the nobility. This is Mark Twain at his best. 1. Language: English.

In this mischievous yarn by Mark Twain, a Yankee mechanic named Hank Morgan is knocked unconscious in a fight and awakens to find himself at Camelot in AD 528. Brought before the Knights of the Round Table, he is condemned to death, but saves himself by using his 19th-century scientific knowledge to pose as a powerful magician. After correctly predicting an eclipse, Hank is made minister to King Arthur, and goes on to counsel him on such matters as gunpowder, electricity, and industrial methods. But when he attempts to better the condition of the peasantry, he meets opposition from the church, knights, and sorcerers, and finds his efforts at enlightenment turned against him. A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Courtis both a rollicking romantic fantasy and a canny social satire that only one of America's greatest writers could pen. 1. Language: English.

Sacrifice (Breakthroughs in Mimetic Theory) , H...

In Sacrifice, Rene Girard interrogates the Brahmanas of Vedic India, exploring coincidences with mimetic theory that are too numerous and striking to be accidental. Even that which appears to be dissimilar fails to contradict mimetic theory, but instead corresponds to the minimum of illusion without which sacrifice becomes impossible. The Bible reveals collective violence, similar to that which generates sacrifice everywhere, but instead of making victims guilty, the Bible and the Gospels reveal the persecutors of a single victim. Instead of elaborating myths, they tell the truth absolutely contrary to the archaic sense. Once exposed, the single victim mechanism can no longer function as the model for would-be sacrificers. Recognizing that the Vedic tradition also converges on a revelation that discredits sacrifice, mimetic theory locates within sacrifice itself a paradoxical power of quiet reflection that leads, in the long run, to the eclipse of this institution which is violent but nevertheless fundamental to the development of human culture. Far from unduly privileging the Western tradition and awarding it a monopoly on the knowledge and repudiation of blood sacrifice, mimetic analysis recognizes comparable, but never truly identical, traits in the Vedic tradition. In giving attention to the overlooked subject of Vedic sacrifice in Indian religious tradition, this Stanford Emeritus Professor and member of the French Academy deepens understanding of the universal practice of sacrifice."

The RIP: Mining the Subconscious Artifact , Hör...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

The Quest: To pass through conscript meaning, enter the emotional-sensorial parallel, feel deeply and bring forth the full essence of whole consciousness.  Born with five perfectly balanced senses, the human mind is bathed in dynamic sensing. In mathematical terms, this represents five to the fifth power conscious awareness. Are you aware that the creature-being exists within an encoded/emotional first voice that is immediately activated at birth?  Is fear your friend or enemy? When fear is your enemy, you lose your essence. Did you know that knowledge has no essence?  Do you think your feelings belong to you? They do not - via psychological implant, losses or gains are predetermined circumstances governed by the word sanction given to others.  What makes the idea of truth a hypocrisy? Can you define fact as anything more than mental impasse or define truth as more than paradoxical conscription?  The Word-Language is a mono-dimensional syllabus and noun-verb inversion that is unfit for an essence creature - the human being. Are you using your first voice to access total consciousness rather than remembering performance-rated acts? How do you stimulate and use this natural treasure? Once you learn how to enter the world of emotion... your feelings will evolve and take flight!  The RIP will remain as one of the most important, fresh and poignant works to eclipse this century.  Until you listen to The RIP, who and what you are will never be as clear. 1.
