Book excerpt: We all suffer from a deficit. Somewhere in our lives we have felt the pain of rejection, a pain that doesn’t go away easily. It is kept alive by ongoing difficulties we have in relationships with others. Yet we were made to love and be loved, and there is a deep instinctual longing in the human heart for love, acceptance, and worth. In her book Something Beautiful: Learning to Live Loved, author Jill Bradshaw shares her journey to find love in her life. Bradshaw uses her personal story to show how we struggle in a world that seems to be getting harder, colder, and more self-oriented. We harden our hearts to protect them, but in doing so we shut others out. But as you’ll see, there is hope. You will learn about a Christianity that goes deeper than theological knowledge, belief systems, and organised religion. Discover the One who longs for a close relationship with you, the God who longs to transform each life he touches into something beautiful and meaningful. Something Beautiful: Learning to Live Loved shows that whatever your experience of God—there is more. You are worthy of love, and he will help you find it.

We keep on with our focused, relentless pursuit of everything else and find ourselves dissatisfied.

Günter Figal engages in a penetrating analysis of the moment at which, in our contemplation of a work of art, reaction and thought confront each other.

Download or read book Beauty and the End of Art written by Sonia Sedivy and published by Bloomsbury Publishing. This book was released on 2016-04-21 with total page 288 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Beauty and the End of Art shows how a resurgence of interest in beauty and a sense of ending in Western art are challenging us to rethink art, beauty and their relationship. By arguing that Wittgenstein's later work and contemporary theory of perception offer just what we need for a unified approach to art and beauty, Sonia Sedivy provides new answers to these contemporary challenges. These new accounts also provide support for the Wittgensteinian realism and theory of perception that make them possible. Wittgenstein's subtle form of realism explains artworks in terms of norm governed practices that have their own varied constitutive norms and values. Wittgensteinian realism also suggests that diverse beauties become available and compelling in different cultural eras and bring a shared 'higher-order' value into view. With this framework in place, Sedivy argues that perception is a form of engagement with the world that draws on our conceptual capacities. This approach explains how perceptual experience and the perceptible presence of the world are of value, helping to account for the diversity of beauties that are available in different historical contexts and why the many faces of beauty allow us to experience the value of the world's perceptible presence. Carefully examining contemporary debates about art, aesthetics and perception, Beauty and the End of Art presents an original approach. Insights from such diverse thinkers as Immanuel Kant, Hans-Georg Gadamer and Arthur Danto, Alexander Nehamas, Elaine Scarry and Dave Hickey are woven together to reveal how they make good sense if we bring contemporary theory of perception and Wittgensteinian realism into the conversation.
Download or read book Organization and Aesthetics written by Antonio Strati and published by SAGE. This book was released on 1999-01-08 with total page 227 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This book shows how aesthetic understanding of organizations can extend our knowledge and sharpen our insights into many processes that shape organizational action. Organizational life is pervaded by aesthetics, yet conventional organizational analysis has been dominated by a `scientific′, logico-rational tradition that ignores the aesthetic dimension. The book highlights the role of emotion in organizations, the importance of symbol, the subjective influence of culture and the processes of learning and cognition. These phenomena are related to the aesthetic rather than to purify rational, demanding new modes of inquiry that allow us richer insight into the dynamics of organizational life. Organization and Aesthetics provides a powerful new lens through which the daily, ever-chaning complexity of organizations can be better understood by students, researchers and mangers.

Download or read book Environmental Criticism for the Twenty First Century written by Stephanie LeMenager and published by Routledge. This book was released on 2011-05-09 with total page 301 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Environmental Criticism for the Twenty-First Century showcases the recent explosive expansion of environmental criticism, which is actively transforming three areas of broad interest in contemporary literary and cultural studies: history, scale, and science. With contributors engaging texts from the medieval period through the twenty-first century, the collection brings into focus recent ecocritical concern for the long durations through which environmental imaginations have been shaped. Contributors also address problems of scale, including environmental institutions and imaginations that complicate conventional rubrics such as the national, local, and global. Finally, this collection brings together a set of scholars who are interested in drawing on both the sciences and the humanities in order to find compelling stories for engaging ecological processes such as global climate change, peak oil production, nuclear proliferation, and food scarcity. Environmental Criticism for the Twenty-First Century offers powerful proof that cultural criticism is itself ecologically resilient, evolving to meet the imaginative challenges of twenty-first-century environmental crises.
