Imaginations of Death and the Beyond in India and Europe By Günter Blamberger
English | PDF,EPUB | 2018 | 208 Pages | ISBN : 9811067066 | 6.98 MB

This volume explores current images of afterlife/afterdeath and the presence of the dead in the imaginations of the living in Indian and European traditions. Specifically, it focuses on the deepest and most fundamental uncertainty of human existence–-the awareness of human mortality, on which depends any assignment of meaning to earthly existence as also to notions of worldly and otherworldly salvation. This central idea is addressed in the literature, arts, audiovisual media and other cultural artefacts of the two traditions.

The Poetry of Knowledge and the 'Two Cultures'

The Poetry of Knowledge and the 'Two Cultures' By John G. Fitch
English | PDF,EPUB | 2018 | 167 Pages | ISBN : 3319895591 | 2.40 MB

This book argues that poetry is compatible with systematic knowledge including science, and indeed inherent in it; it also discusses particular poems that engage with such knowledge, including those of Lucretius, Vergil, and Vita Sackville-West. The book argues that there are substantial similarities between knowledge-making and poetry-making, for example in their being shaped by language, including metaphor, and in their seeking unity in the world, under the impulse of eros and pleasure.
