Download and read online Dante the Unorthodox in PDF and EPUB During his lifetime, Dante was condemned as corrupt and banned from Florence on pain of death. But in 1329, eight years after his death, he was again viciously condemned—this time as a heretic and false prophet—by Friar Guido Vernani. From Vernani’s inquisitorial viewpoint, the author of the Commedia “seduced” his readers by offering them “a vessel of demonic poison” mixed with poetic fantasies designed to destroy the “healthful truth” of Catholicism. Thanks to such pious vituperations, a sulphurous fume of unorthodoxy has persistently clung to the mantle of Dante’s poetic fame. The primary critical purpose of Dante & the Unorthodox is to examine the aesthetic impulses behind the theological and political reasons for Dante’s allegory of mid-life divergence from the papally prescribed “way of salvation.” Marking the septicentennial of his exile, the book’s eighteen critical essays, three excerpts from an allegorical drama, and a portfolio of fourteen contemporary artworks address the issue of the poet’s conflicted relation to orthodoxy. By bringing the unorthodox out of the realm of “secret things,” by uncensoring them at every turn, Dante dared to oppose the censorious regime of Latin Christianity with a transgressive zeal more threatening to papal authority than the demonic hostility feared by Friar Vernani.

Download and read online Unorthodox Life in PDF and EPUB UNORTHODOX LIFE. In the 1930's, Germany, the most powerful and ruthless nation in the world, decreed that our family was to be exterminated. Rudy Rosenberg, born in Belgium in 1930 found himself and his immediate family locked in Belgium. Rudy, his sister Ruth, Hillel his Poland born father and Frieda his German born mother, Jewish and Stateless were unable to break out of Europe. The family watched the growth of Hitler and his Nazi anti-Semitic policies with increased concernhoping that unlike in the Great War (1914-1918) Belgium's neutrality would be respected by Germany. 1935 Anti-Jewish laws began in Germany (Frieda's family would be murdered and wiped out during (1942-1943) 1938 Hitler marched into Czechoslovakia. Hitler marched into Austria 1939 Hitler invaded Poland (Hillel's family would be murdered and wiped out (1941-1942), we heard of Jews being hunted and killed by the German invaders. 1940 In April, Hitler invaded Denmark and Norway. 1940 in May, Hitler invaded Belgium, Holland and France. Rudy and his family watched and remembered the anti-Jewish vitriol that seeped into occupied Europe and even in previously benign Belgium. Starting in 1941 the first arrests of thousands of Belgian Jews came about. These were released through the personal intervention of Belgium's Queen Elizabeth. (These Belgian Jews would later be arrested and deported again in 1943). In 1942, Rudy, Ruth and countless Jewish students were forbidden to continue their schooling. The family was left with limited choices. We had to either try to flee to unoccupied Switzerland or hide in convents or Christian camps or private homes. A last alternative was to await the German troops for the deadly arrest and deportation to concentration camps mostly in Poland or Germany where swift death would be certain. In June 1942 we purchased fake identity papers so we could flee to Switzerland. Unfortunately we soon learned that this escape route was too dangerous and not practical. Our parents found a safe hiding place in the Ardennes for Ruth and Rudy. For a fee Frieda found a basement to hide in Ixelles, a suburb of Brussels in a private home. Hillel, for a much larger fee, found a hiding place in a private house ini Uccle, another suburb of Brussels. For safety reasons, after about three months Ruth and Rudy left the hotel in the Ardennes.Ruth and Rudy went to hide and joined with father in Uccle. Six months later, in March 1943, Rudy went to hide with Frieda in her Ixelles basement where they remained in hiding until they were finally liberated on the 3rd of September 1944 after hiding in the basement for 17 months. The family spent over two years, 27 months, 823 days in hiding. We then tried to resume our educations, live again and become normal people again. Eventually Rudy left Europe for the USA, joined the US Army during the Korean conflict. Frieda and Ruth joined Rudy three years later. In 1991 Rudy wrote and published "And Somehow We Survive" an account of the struggle of his family to survive. Now Rudy Rosenberg expands his life and the attempts to sort out the early life, survival and his arrival in the USA .There he details his bewildering coming to terms with his ethnic background, a faith he never knew and the religion he ran away from: AN UNORTHODOX LIFE.

Download and read online The Tao of Deception in PDF and EPUB The history of China is a history of warfare. Wars have caused dynasties to collapse, fractured the thin façade of national unity, and brought decades of alien occupation. But throughout Chinese history, its warfare has been guided by principles different from those that governed Europe. Chinese strategists followed the concept, first articulated by Sun-tzu in The Art of War, of qi (ch'i), or unorthodox, warfare. The concept of qi involves creating tactical imbalances in order to achieve victory against even vastly superior forces. Ralph D. Sawyer, translator of The Art of War and one of America's preeminent experts on Chinese military tactics, here offers a comprehensive guide to the ancient practice of unorthodox warfare. He describes, among many other tactics, how Chinese generals have used false rumors to exploit opposing generals' distrust of their subordinates; dressed thousands of women as soldiers to create the illusion of an elite attack force; and sent word of a false surrender to lure enemy troops away from a vital escape route. The Tao of Deception is the book that military tacticians and military historians will turn to as the definitive guide to a new, yet ancient, way of thinking about strategy.
Download and read online One Hundred Unorthodox Strategies in PDF and EPUB One Hundred Unorthodox Strategies was compiled in the fifteenth century, during the Ming Dynasty, as a handbook of tactics based on Chinese military classics. Translated into English for the first time, this unique work draws on over two thousand years of experience in warfare to present a distillation of one hundred key strategic principles. Originally prepared as a text for students aspiring to high political positions in Confucian China, One Hundred Unorthodox Strategies is a compendium of Oriental strategies concisely stated and each individually illustrated with a description of battle from Chinese history. These historical examples shed new light on the often enigmatic formulations of the ancient strategists on subjects such as Strategic Power, Defense, Vacuity, Spirit, and Victory. Acclaimed translator and Chinese military specialist Ralph Sawyer adds his own thoughtful commentary, deepening the reader's understanding of the intricacies of Chinese strategic thought.

Download and read online Unorthodox Humeanism in PDF and EPUB The book discusses contemporary metaphysics of science and deals with the central question which ontology fits best with our knowledge of the world. Two competing positions in today's metaphysics of science are analysed: Humeanism and dispositionalism. There are physical and metaphysical arguments to show that orthodox Humeanism is in trouble. The unorthodox metaphysical turn consists in taking the fundamental properties to be relations rather than intrinsic properties. The book spells out in detail what an unorthodox version of Humeanism amounts to and shows that in turning unorthodox Humeanism offers a competitive metaphysical framework for science without commitment to irreducible causation.

Oppenheimer, reflecting on this book and Barbara Sinclair’s significant mark on the study of Congress.
