              The Inward Turn of Narrative (Hardback)

              Erich Kahler sees cultural history as a subtle process in which reality plays upon consciousness and consciousness itself is forever transforming reality. He traces the ebb and flow of this relationship by studying changes in narrative form from its beginnings in the Gilgamesh Cy...cle to the end of the eighteenth century. The general direction is toward a growing inwardness, he finds; what takes place is an expansion of consciousness as man constantly draws outer space, the contents of a more and more complex world, into what Rilke called Weltinnenraum, inner space. Originally published in . The Princeton Legacy Library uses the latest print-on-demand technology to again make available previously out-of-print books from the distinguished backlist of Princeton University Press.

              The ultimate of human happiness is to be found in contemplation . In offering this proposition of Thomas Aquinas to our thought, Josef Pieper uses traditional wisdom in order to throw light on present-day reality and present-day psychological problems. What, in fact, does one pur...sue in pursuing happiness? What, in the consensus of the wisdom of the early Greeks, of Plato and Aristotle, of the New Testament, of Augustine and Aquinas, is that condition of perfect bliss toward which all life and effort tend by nature? In this profound and illuminating inquiry, Pieper considers the nature of contemplation, and the meaning and goal of life.

              In Tune with the World: A Theory of Festivity
               

              In Tune with the World: A Theory of Festivity (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              In this stimulating and still-timely study, Josef Pieper takes up a theme of paramount importance to his thinking - that festivals belong by rights among the great topics of philisophical discussion. As he develops his theory of festivity, the modern age comes under close and pai...nful scrutiny. It is obvious that we no longer know what festivity is, namely, the celebration of existencc under various symbols. Peiper exposes the pscudo-festivals, in their harmless and their sinnister forms: traditional feasts contaminated bhy commercialism; artificial holidays created in the the interest of merchandisers; holidays bhy coercion, decreed by dictators the world over; festivals as military demonstrations; holidays empty of significance. And lastly we are given the apocalyptic vision of a nihilistic world which would seek its release not in festivities but in destruction. Formulated with Pieper's customary clarity and elegance, enhanced by brilliantly chosen quotations, this is an illuminating contribution to the understanding of traditional and contemporary experience.

              The Deputy

              The Deputy (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              By Hochhuth, Rolf; Translated by Winston, Richard; Winston, Clara; Introduction by Schweitzer, Albert

              Upon its premiere, The Deputy stirred up more controversy and caused greater repercussions than any other postwar work. Based on Rolf Hochhuth's research into the Vatican activities during World War II, the play's treatment of Pope Pius XII -- the deputy of Christ on earth -- and... the Church during the Nazi persecution of the Jews made it the object of impassioned praise and violent denunciation. It is a powerful, shocking work that casts a penetrating eye on the role that supposed moral leaders must play in times of great humanitarian crises.
