Summary:

Gillian Flynn says, "Karin Slaughter is simply one of the best thriller writers working today." A small Georgia town erupts in panic when a young college professor is found brutally mutilated in the local diner. But it's only when town pediatrician and coroner Sara Linton does the autopsy that the full extent of the killer's twisted work becomes clear. Sara's ex-husband, police chief Jeffrey Tolliver, leads the investigation—a trail of terror that grows increasingly macabre when another local woman is found crucified a few days later. But he's got more than a sadistic serial killer on his hands, for the county's sole female detective, Lena Adams—the first victim's sister—want to serve her own justice. But it is Sara who holds the key to finding the killer. A secret from her past could unmask the brilliantly malevolent psychopath .. or mean her death.

Summary:

The chapters in this volume span many areas of cognitive science -- including artificial intelligence, neural network models, animal cognition, signal detection theory, computational models, reaction-time methods, and cognitive neuroscience. An Invitation to Cognitive Science provides a point of entry into the vast realm of cognitive science by treating in depth examples of issues and theories from many subfields. The first three volumes of the series cover Language, Visual Cognition, and Thinking. Volume 4, Methods, Models, and Conceptual Issues, expands the series in new directions. The chapters span many areas of cognitive science -- including artificial intelligence, neural network models, animal cognition, signal detection theory, computational models, reaction-time methods, and cognitive neuroscience. The volume also offers introductions to several general methods and theoretical approaches for analyzing the mind, and shows how some of these approaches are applied in the development of quantitative models. Rather than general and inevitably superficial surveys of areas, the contributors present "case studies" -- detailed accounts of one or two achievements within an area. The goal is to tell a good story, challenging the reader to embark on an intellectual adventure.

Summary:

Tensions of oppositions internal to T. S. Eliot's Four Quartets-the "high...low, lyric...prosaic, subjective...objective, visionary...quotidian, religious...skeptical," among others-are problematic and provoke widely divergent interpretive readings. Eliot (post-conversion) believes these oppositions to be "complementary visions of reality," yet readers and critics have ongoing difficulty reconciling them (Edward Lobb, ed., Words in Time, 33). My project addresses what Denis Donoghue calls this "unfinished business" of Four Quartets (Lobb, 19), bringing this irresolution into clarity by providing a set of bi-focal lenses: the kataphatic and the apophatic-the Catholic Church's two divergent prayer traditions of the via positiva and the via negativa. While critics have examined Eliot's early rejection of William James's pragmatism (positive) and Henri Bergson's mysticism (negative), they fail to fit Eliot's early philosophical interest in finding a "clear conception of what the word human implies" into a generalized pattern within his life's work ("The Relation between Politics and Metaphysics," p. 19, Houghton Library, Harvard University). Applying categories of the kataphatic and the apophatic, I show a clearly discernible trajectory of how Eliot understood and utilized the tension of opposites. Initially, I develop these terms within their Aristotelian origins, Biblical contexts, the early Church Fathers, the medieval mystics, William James' Varieties of Religious Experience, and then in exemplification within Eliot's writings. I work through "Tradition and the Individual Talent," showing the dramatic, transgressive yoking of antinomies as unresolved and forced into a compresence. I elucidate how-by discovering a negation of The Cloud of Unknowing's mysticism and the pragmatic counsel of Henri Bergson's Laughter-Eliot compresses The Waste Land into its final Aristotelian apophatic form of "not." My claims regarding this classical via negativa of form utilize Brett Bourbon's work showing The Waste Land as "moral test" (Faces of Words ms 90). In Four Quartets, I illustrate how Eliot attempts-through kataphatic imagery, his misunderstood use of false apophatic experiences contrasting with embedded texts of medieval mystics, and the discursive sections bridging the gap between kataphatic and apophatic-to show love (and God as Love) as what resolves the tension of oppositions and shows clearly "what the word human implies."

Summary:

The mantram, or mantra, is a short, powerful, spiritual formula from the world’s great traditions, repeated silently in the mind, anytime, anywhere. Examples of mantrams areRama, Rama,used by Gandhi, orMy God and My All,repeated by St. Francis of Assisi, orOm Mane Padme Hum.Easwaran taught the use of the mantram for over forty years as part of his passage meditation program. He explains how the mantram works, and gives practical guidelines for using it to focus our thoughts and access deeper resources of strength, patience, and love. The mantram can help us replenish our energy, release creativity, and heal old conflicts. These resonant phrases work equally well for parents with young children, colleagues at work, couples in a relationship, in illness or depression, and even at the time of death. And Easwaran shows how repetition of the mantram can open the door to a life that is increasingly meaningful and fulfilling.

Summary:

This book revises the traditional view of consciousness by claiming that Cartesianism and Descartes' dualism of mind and body should be replaced with theories from the realms of neuroscience, psychology and artificial intelligence. What people think of as the stream of consciousness is not a single, unified sequence, the author argues, but "multiple drafts" of reality composed by a computer-like "virtual machine". Dennett considers how consciousness could have evolved in human beings and confronts the classic mysteries of consciousness: the nature of introspection, the self or ego and its relation to thoughts and sensations, and the level of consciousness of non-human creatures.

When medical examiner Sara Linton and police chief Jeffrey Tolliver take a trip away from the small town of Heartsdale, it should be a straightforward weekend at the beach.

And when Jeffrey appears to change the crime scene, Sara no longer knows who to trust. Twelve years later, Sara and Jeffrey are caught up in a shockingly brutal attack which threatens to destroy both their lives. But they're not random victims. They've been targeted. And it seems the past is catching up with both of them ...
