Lyrics by Jimmy Lyons

  These lyrics by Jimmy Lyons spin a linguistic opus of love and family, existentialism and politics, planetary consciousness, myth and meaning, for everyone. I write lyrics for the journey on the mystical backroads, the word hustlers, sound musicians, poets of the third ear, people who are poems in motion, beatific, whose next moment is a Zen solo in the subterranean landscape with new directions in the continuing evolution of American music, world fusion.

R.D. Laing and the Paths of Anti-Psychiatry

  In the 1960s and 1970s, the radical and visionary ideas of R.D. Laing revolutionized thinking about psychiatric practice and the meaning of madness. But after little more than a decade, he faded from prominence as quickly as he had attained it.R.D. Laing and the Paths of Anti-Psychiatry re-examines Laing's work in the context of the anti-psychiatry movement. Concentrating on his most productive decade, the author provides a reasoned critique of Laing's theoretical writings, investigates the influences on his thinking such as phenomenology, existentialism and American family interaction research, and considers the experimental Kingsley Hall therapeutic community in comparison with anti-psychiatry experiments in Germany and Italy.

Complete Summary & Analysis-The Adventures of Augie March-

  Saul Bellow is one of those blessed writers who are able to change the course of the contemporary society by their unique and compelling writing skills.His status in the post-WW II period of American literature can only be compared to that of Hemingway or Faulkner in the earlier part of the century. Nobel Laureate (1976) and winner of numerous awards, Bellow has commanded serious critical attention for more than 45 years. By now, he is undoubtedly one of the most written-about fiction writers of the contemporary American period. Since the 1950 scholars have produced over 30 published volumes and over 1,500 scholarly essays attest to his importance. Such interest hinges largely on the fact that no other post-WW II American writer has analyzed so completely and so humanely the effects of American cultural anxiety with the age of technology and rationalism, existentialism, and the legacy of high modernism. Scorning absurdism, nihilism, alienation ethics, and belief in Deus Abscondus, refuting historicist pessimism, preaching against the void, and defending the embattled masculine self of Western metaphysics, Bellow has affirmed Judeo-Christian religious and social values more strongly perhaps than any other twentieth-century writer. From within this space he has tried to restore the integrity of feeling, the meaning of ordinary existence, and the primacy of social contract to a society in which he perceives these things to be in eclipse. Likewise, few writers have explored so thoroughly and humorously the high comedy of heterosexual relations in our age, or the multiple, defeating 'masculinities' to which the American male is heir. That he has failed to deal adequately with 'femininity' and people of color is a commonplace of recent Bellow criticism and cannot be ignored. However, it is the complexity of this failure which he shares with so many other male writers that should interest us.

Kristeller Reconsidered: Essays on His Life and Scholarship

  Arguably the greatest Renaissance scholar of the great generation of émigrés to America that included Baron, Panofsky and Krautheimer, Paul Oskar Kristeller (1905-1999) revolutionized Renaissance studies and significantly influenced three generations of students, scholars, and general readers through his teaching, lecturing, research and writing. In numerous articles and books he put forward a radically different - and focused - interpretation of Renaissance humanism and its relation to intellectual and cultural life. His training in Weimar Germany hardly suggested such a career path, as Kristeller studied phenomenology and existentialism with Edmund Husserl, Karl Jaspers, and Martin Heidegger, philology under Eduard Norden and Werner Jaeger, and made his first mark with a study of Plotinus, the founder of ancient Neo-Platonism, under Ernst Hoffman. But the rise of Nazism and his consequent flight to Italy and then to America changed Kristeller's view toward scholarship and its contexts in profound ways that are still being debated. Kristeller Reconsidered finally takes the measure of this scholarly and geographical voyage from cutting-edge German philosophy and classical studies to breathtakingly innovative and substantive interpretations of the Renaissance. Sixteen leading scholars examine Kristeller's life and thought to uncover the relationship between the man and the historical and philosophical movement he defined. They include Michael J.B. Allen, Paul Richard Blum, Warren Boutcher, Christopher S. Celenza, Arthur Field, Paul F. Grendler, James Hankins, Margaret L. King, Patricia H. Labalme, Angelo Mazzocco, John Monfasani, James J. Murphy, Martin L. Pine, Frederick Purnell, Jr., John Tedeschi, Ronald G. Witt. This collection offers fresh insights at a time when the humanist tradition itself and its influence on American culture is at a crucial turning point.
