The Revolutionary Art of Love: From Romantic Love to Global Compassion

Author: 

Briciu, Bianca, Assistant Professor of Transformative Leadership and Spirituality, Saint Paul University

The Revolutionary Art of Love: From Romantic Love to Global Compassion offers a complex description of love as a personal emotion and as an intersubjective, ethical experience of connection. Its purpose is to deconstruct cultural myths about love, proposing instead a framework for understanding love’s contribution to the well-being of individuals and social systems. The uniqueness of the book lies in its interdisciplinary scope, articulating love as a form of connection to the self, others, and the world in general.

The Wound That Will Never Heal: An Allegorical Interpretation of Richard Wagner’s The Ring of the Nibelung

Author: 

Heise, Paul Brian, Internationally Recognized Author and Specialist on Richard Wagner

Credentials: 

Editor of www.wagnerheim.com

Paul Brian Heise’s The Wound That Will Never Heal is an original allegorical reading of Richard Wagner’s epic music drama The Ring of the Nibelung. Heise challenges the standard view that Wagner merely dramatizes the conflict between love and power and demonstrates instead that his greatest work is an allegory exploring humanity’s longing for transcendent value and that quest’s paradoxical establishment of a science-based secular society.

Our Unfinished Biological Revolution

Author: 

Itzkoff, Seymour W.

Credentials: 

Professor Emeritus of Education, Smith College; Author of Humanity’s Evolutionary Destiny: A Darwinian Perspective

Seymour W. Itzkoff is one of the world’s leading intelligence researchers. His exciting new book Our Unfinished Biological Revolution offers a bold and highly original new study on the evolution of human intelligence from the origin of life to our times. With the help of evolutionary theory, Itzkoff explains the nature of human intelligence as we know it today. Most importantly, it demonstrates that evolution led to the rise of what intelligence researchers call the general intelligence factor: the human ability to plan ahead and solve problems for which natural selection did not prepare us.

A History of Chinese Classical Scholarship, Volume III: Northern and Southern Dynasties, Sui, and Early Tang: The Decline of Factual Philology and the Rise of Speculative Hermeneutics

Author: 

Honey, David M., Humanities Professor of Chinese, Brigham Young University

This exciting third volume of David M. Honey’s comprehensive history of Chinese thought begins with China after nomadic invaders overran the northern regions of the historic kingdom. The differentiation between scholarly emphases—northern focus on the traditional pedagogical commentary, and southern classical school’s more innovative commentary—led to an emphasis on the interpretation of the overall message of a text, not a close reading of smaller sections. As Honey explains, serious attention to the phonological nature of Chinese characters also began during in this long era.

A History of Chinese Classical Scholarship, Volume II: Qin, Han, Wei, Jin: Canon and Commentary

Author: 

Honey, David M., Humanities Professor of Chinese, Brigham Young University

Volume II of David M. Honey’s comprehensive history of Chinese thought covers a vital 500-year stretch in China’s history, from national unification in 221 BCE to the first post-imperial fragmentation into rival northern and southern polities. This volume discusses the reconstitution of the classics after the textual devastation wrought by the policies of the First Emperor of Qin, who destroyed many of them, and their eventual canonization by the crown during the Western Han period.

A History of Chinese Classical Scholarship, Volume I, Zhou: Confucius, the Six Classics, and Scholastic Transmission

Author: 

Honey, David M., Humanities Professor of Chinese, Brigham Young University

The first volume of David M. Honey’s comprehensive history of Chinese thought offers a close study of Confucius, that tradition’s proto-classicist. This opening volume examines Confucius traditions that largely formed the views of later classicists, who regarded him as their profession’s patron saint. Honey’s survey begins by examining how these views informed the Chinese classicists’ own identities as textual critics and interpreters, all dedicated to self-cultivation for government service.
