📒The Metamorphosis And Other Stories ✍ Franz Kafka
📝The Metamorphosis and Other Stories Book Synopsis : 'When Gregor Samsa woke one morning from uneasy dreams, he found himself transformed into some kind of monstrous vermin.' With a bewildering blend of the everyday and the fantastical, Kafka thus begins his most famous short story, The Metamorphosis. A commercial traveller is unexpectedly freed from his dreary job by his inexplicable transformation into an insect, which drastically alters his relationship with his family. Kafka considered publishing it with two of the stories included here in a volume to be called Punishments. The Judgement also concerns family tensions, when a power struggle between father and son ends with the father passing an enigmatic judgement on the helpless son. The third story, In the Penal Colony, explores questions of power, justice, punishment, and the meaning of pain in a colonial setting. These three stories are flanked by two very different works. Meditation, the first book Kafka published, consists of light, whimsical, often poignant mood-pictures, while in the autobiographical Letter to his Father, Kafka analyses his difficult relationship in forensic and devastating detail.

📒The Metamorphosis Of Finitude ✍ Emmanuel Falque
📝The Metamorphosis of Finitude Book Synopsis : This book starts off from a philosophical premise: nobody can be in the world unless they are born into the world. It examines this premise in the light of the theological belief that birth serves, or ought to serve, as a model for understanding what resurrection could signify for us today. After all, the modern Christian needs to find some way of understanding resurrection, and the dogma of the resurrection of the body is vacuous unless we can relate it philosophically to our own world of experience. Nicodemus first posed the question "How can anyone be born after having grown old? Can one enter a second time into the mother's womb and be born?" This book reads that problem in the context of contemporary philosophy (particularly the thought of Husserl, Heidegger, Sartre, Merleau-Ponty, and Deleuze). A phenomenology of the body born "from below" is seen as a paradigm for a theology of spiritual rebirth, and for rebirth of the body from "on high." The Resurrection changes everything in Christianity--but it is also our own bodies that must be transformed in resurrection, as Christ is transfigured. And the way in which I hope to be resurrected bodily in God, in the future, depends upon the way in which I live bodily today.
📝The Metamorphosis of Magic from Late Antiquity to the Early Modern Period Book Synopsis : Deities, demons, and angels became important protagonists in the magic of the Late Antique world, and were also the main reasons for the condemnation of magic in the Christian era. Supplicatory incantations, rituals of coercion, enticing suffumigations, magical prayers and mystical songs drew spiritual powers to the humain domain. Next to the magician's desire to regulate fate and fortune, it was the communion with the spirit world that gave magic the potential to purify and even deify its practitioners. The sense of elation and the awareness of a metaphysical order caused magic to merge with philosophy (notably Neoplatonism). The heritage of Late Antique theurgy would be passed on to the Arab world, and together with classical science and learning would take root again in the Latin West in the High Middle Ages. The metamorphosis of magic laid out in this book is the transformation of ritual into occult philosophy against the background of cultural changes in Judaism, Graeco-Roman religion and Christianity. This volume, the first in the new series Groningen Studies in Cultural Change, offers the papers presented at the workshop The Metamorphosis of Magic from Late Antiquity to the Early Modern Period held from 22 to 24 June 2000, and organised by Jan N. Bremmer and Jan R. Veenstra. The papers have been written by scholars from such varying disciplines as classics, theology, philosophy, cultural history, and law. Their contributions shed new light upon several old obscurities; they show magic to be a significant area of culture, and they advance the case for viewing transformations in the lore and practice of magic as a barometer with which to measure cultural change.

📒The Metamorphosis Of Persephone ✍ Stephen Hinds
📝The Metamorphosis of Persephone Book Synopsis : Ovid, a poet unashamedly in love in poetry, including his own, has enjoyed a recent renaissance in popularity. Yet there is still a certain tendency amongst critics to withhold from his writing the close, word-by-word, engagement which is its due. The primary aim of The Metamorphosis of Persephone is to celebrate this poet's detailed verbal art. Ovid twice treated the myth of Persephone. Dr Hinds' work is a close reading of the account in Metamorphoses 5. The book is at once a literary historical enquiry into the double transformation of the rape of Persephone, and a critical exploration of the self-conscious delight in language and in writing manifested in and between these twin Ovidian narratives. This attractively written and subtly nuanced literary study, which offers many quiet challenges to established modes of reading Latin narrative poetry, will be of interest both to scholars of Latin and to students of narrative in other languages.

📒The Metamorphosis Of The World ✍ Ulrich Beck
📝The Metamorphosis of the World Book Synopsis : We live in a world that is increasingly difficult to understand. It is not just changing: it is metamorphosing. Change implies that some things change but other things remain the same capitalism changes, but some aspects of capitalism remain as they always were. Metamorphosis implies a much more radical transformation in which the old certainties of modern society are falling away and something quite new is emerging. To grasp this metamorphosis of the world it is necessary to explore the new beginnings, to focus on what is emerging from the old and seek to grasp future structures and norms in the turmoil of the present. Take climate change: much of the debate about climate change has focused on whether or not it is really happening, and if it is, what we can do to stop or contain it. But this emphasis on solutions blinds us to the fact that climate change is an agent of metamorphosis. It has already altered our way of being in the world the way we live in the world, think about the world and seek to act upon the world through our actions and politics. Rising sea levels are creating new landscapes of inequality drawing new world maps whose key lines are not traditional boundaries between nation-states but elevations above sea level. It is creating an entirely different way of conceptualizing the world and our chances of survival within it. The theory of metamorphosis goes beyond theory of world risk society: it is not about the negative side effects of goods but the positive side effects of bads. They produce normative horizons of common goods and propel us beyond the national frame towards a cosmopolitan outlook.
📒The Metamorphosis ✍ E. Thomalen
📝The Metamorphosis Book Synopsis : Poetic drama 5m, 3f. Some doubling, 1 Klezmer musician. Dreams are sometimes considered metaphors that help us understand the events in our lives. In this dramatic adaptation of Kafka's novella, Gregor Samsa awakens into a dream in which he finds himself transformed into a cockroach. The Stage Manager "summons" the dream-play while a mime and a musician communicate his thoughts and emotions, invoking a nightmarish atmosphere. Set in early 20th century Prague and written in verse, Thomalen captures the surreal humor and pathos of the story. This work opens a space in the school community for a great work of world literature with special relevance to the pain and struggles of adolescence and young adulthood. Requires an actor with strong mimic talent. Winner of the American Theatre and Education, Unpublished Play Reading Project.
📒The Metamorphosis Of Charles Mott ✍ Per Madsen
📝The Metamorphosis of Charles Mott Book Synopsis : The Metamorphosis of Charles Mott is a story about a business executive who falls in his bathtub, sustains a skull fracture and goes into a coma. While unconscious, he comes into contact with his superconscious mind. He learns about the effect of thought on reality as it is perceived by each individual. He accepts a challenge from his superconscious to try, when he recovers, to guide the thinking of his fellow human beings into different paths to effectively harmonize with their inner being and intent. The stated purpose is to assist humanity to free itself from the effects of negative thinking. He decides that in order to be convincing, he must demonstrate in his own body that positive thought causes physical changes to occur. He then sets about to rejuvenate his body and gradually changes his physical appearance from a 66 year old to a man in his thirties. About the Author Now a retired business executive residing in Virginia Beach, Virginia, Per Madsen spent most of his productive years in Europe in charge of automotive sales and service for a large automobile manufacturer.

Believing that consciousness, and particularly human consciousness, is in continuous evolution towards higher levels, he attempts to influence the direction of his own evolution by constantly exposing his mind to new input of philosophical and metaphysical nature.
📒Challenging Past And Present ✍ Ellen P. Conant
📝Challenging Past And Present Book Synopsis : The complex and coherent development of Japanese art during thecourse of the nineteenth century was inadvertently disrupted by apolitical event: the Meiji Restoration of 1868. Scholars of both thepreceding Edo (1615-1868) and the succeeding Meiji (1868-1912) erashave shunned the decades bordering this arbitrary divide, thus creatingan art-historical void that the former view as a period of waningtechnical and creative inventiveness and the latter as one threatenedby Meiji reforms and indiscriminate westernization and modernization.Challenging Past and Present, to the contrary, demonstrates that theperiod 1840-1890, as seen progressively rather than retrospectively, experienced a dramatic transformation in the visual arts, which in turnmade possible the creative achievements of the twentieth century
