Edward W. Said, "L'Orientalisme : L'Orient créé par l'Occident"  eBooks & eLearning

Edward W. Said, "L'Orientalisme : L'Orient créé par l'Occident"
Seuil | 2005 | ISBN: 2286018324 | French | PDF | 430 pages | 22.1 MB

D'Eschyle à Kissinger, de Marx à Barrès, l'Occident a tenu un discours sur l'Orient. Mais, puisque "l'Orient" n'existe pas, d'où vient ce discours et comment expliquer son étonnante stabilité à travers les âges et les idéologies? "L'Orient" est une création de l'Occident, son double, son contraire, l'incarnation de ses craintes et de son sentiment de supériorité tout à la fois, la chair d'un corps dont il ne voudrait être que l'esprit. …

Edward T. Hall, "La dimension cachée"
Seuil | 1971 | ISBN: 2020020327 | French | EPUB | 255 pages | 0.5 MB

La dimension cachée, c'est celle du territoire de tout être vivant, animal ou humain, de l'espace nécessaire à son équilibre. Mais chez l'homme, cette dimension devient culturelle. Ainsi, chaque civilisation a sa manière de concevoir les déplacements du corps, l'agencement des maisons, les conditions de la conversation, les frontières de l'intimité. Ces études comparatives jettent une lumière neuve sur la connaissance que nous pouvons avoir d'autrui et sur le danger que nous courons, dans nos cites modernes, à ignorer cette dimension cachée : peut-être est -ce moins le surpeuplement qui nous menace que la perte de notre identité. …

Edward T. Hall a montré, dans La Dimension cachée, que l'espace interpersonnel est une dimension de la culture. Le Langage silencieux avait conduit cette réflexion sur d'autres systèmes du même genre, et notamment le temps. Qu'est-ce qu'être en retard ? qu'est-ce qu'attendre ? par exemple. Le message exprimé là est différent selon qu'il vient d'un Européen, d'un Américain ou d'un Japonais. …

On the 28th July 1865, nearly ten thousand people gathered in what was then known as 'Jail Square' in Glasgow, to witness the last public execution in Britain. The convict was a murderer - and a doctor - found guilty of administering poison with deliberate intent to kill. The ghoulish tale of Dr Edward Pritchard completes the strand documenting Glasgow's notorious 'square mile murderers' of the late 19th century. Physicians who kill are not unheard of. From the reviled Victorian Dr Crippen, to one of the most prolific serial killers in recorded history, Dr Harold Shipman.

Pelham Humfrey (1647-1674) was a genuine baroque pioneer in the word-setting of English biblical texts, as well as applying elements of French and Italian styles to his work. By the age of seventeen his anthems were evidently in use. He later succeeded Henry Cooke (his father-in-law) as Master of the Children of the Chapel Royal and also became composer to the Court. Humfrey died at the age of 27, but along with Matthew Locke exerted a strong influence on his peers even at his young age, including William Turner, Henry Purcell, and John Blow.
