📒The Kingdom Of Speech ✍ Tom Wolfe
📝The Kingdom of Speech Book Synopsis : 'A great journalist with a whip-like satirical prose style... Wolfe’s great gift is to make the heavy seem light and this book is such an entertaining polemic that I read it in a day and immediately wanted to read it again.' - Bryan Appleyard, Sunday Times Tom Wolfe, whose legend began in journalism, takes us on an eye-opening journey that is sure to arouse widespread debate. The Kingdom of Speech is a captivating, paradigm-shifting argument that speech - not evolution - is responsible for humanity's complex societies and achievements. From Alfred Russel Wallace, the Englishman who beat Darwin to the theory of natural selection but later renounced it, and through the controversial work of modern-day anthropologist Daniel Everett, who defies the current wisdom that language is hard-wired in humans, Wolfe examines the solemn, long-faced, laugh-out-loud zig-zags of Darwinism, old and Neo, and finds it irrelevant here in our Kingdom of Speech.
📒Don T Sleep There Are Snakes ✍ Daniel Everett
📝Don t Sleep There are Snakes Book Synopsis : Although Daniel Everett was a missionary, far from converting the Pirahs, they converted him. He shows the slow, meticulous steps by which he gradually mastered their language and his gradual realisation that its unusual nature closely reflected its speakers' startlingly original perceptions of the world. Everett describes how he began to realise that his discoveries about the Pirah language opened up a new way of understanding how language works in our minds and in our lives, and that this way was utterly at odds with Noam Chomsky's universally accepted linguistic theories. The perils of passionate academic opposition were then swiftly conjoined to those of the Amazon in a debate whose outcome has yet to be won. Everett's views are most recently discussed in Tom Wolfe's bestselling The Kingdom of Speech. Adventure, personal enlightenment and the makings of a scientific revolution proceed together in this vivid, funny and moving book.
📒The Kingdom Of Childhood ✍ Rudolf Steiner
📝The Kingdom of Childhood Book Synopsis : These talks are perhaps the best introduction to Steiner's ideas on Waldorf education. Given to a small group on his last visit to England in 1924, Steiner shows the need for teachers to develop themselves by transforming their natural gifts, and how teachers can use humor to keep their teaching lively and imaginative. Above all, he stresses the grave importance of doing everything with the awareness that children are citizens of both the spiritual and the physical worlds.
