In their own words the Nature Spirits tell us about their "Elemental" world and the jobs they do; detailing that unbreakable connection that exists between mankind and Mother Nature.
The term 'Nature Spirits' or 'Elementals, ' generally conjures up images of dancing fairies or mischievous gnomes. Yet that's not what they are, not at all. You see, every aspect of Nature... from the flowers that bloom in the springtime, to the giant Red Woods that have stood tall for decades, has a spirit inside them. This 'Spirit of Nature' or 'Elemental Spark' works alongside Mother Nature, using its chosen talents and insights to accomplish what needs to be done to maintain our planet. If that's the case, then what about the land itself, or the mountains and stones that cover this planet, you wonder? Wouldn't they also be considered Nature Spirits? The answer is... Yes, of course. The Earth is full of ancient knowledge and the Stones and their counterparts have been the keepers of this knowledge since the beginning of time. It is only through them that we can discover how our world first began and what other secrets and purposes the Nature Spirits of this planet still hold in todays world. Inside this book they have provided us with many of the answers, not only regarding questions about the past but the future as well. Questions such as...where did the Standing Stones and Circles come from and what was the real purpose of those giant, ancient pyramids? Were visitors from the stars responsible for the building of this planet, and why do some volcanos remain active while others sleep? What about the land itself? How does it feel about being battled upon, or built upon for that matter? These are just a few of the answers the Elementals of this planet give us. Come inside and discover a world that most never knew existed. A place full of insight, ancient knowledge and fascinating facts, alive with hidden secrets and details that only Nature Spirits that have been around since the beginning of time would know. Yes, the Elemental Kingdom does exist. It's with great pleasure that the Nature Spirits of the Land now ask that you enter their world as they give you the answers to many of the questions you've always wondered about... "Elementally Speaking," of course.

Contemporary philosopher William Desmond has many companions in thought, and one of the most important of these is Augustine. In lucid prose that draws on the riches of a vibrant philosophical-theological tradition, Renee Kӧhler-Ryan explores Desmond's metaxological philosophy. She elaborates on how Desmond's philosophical work in discovering how humans are constantly "between" remains in conversation with a tradition of thinkers that includes Plato, Augustine, Thomas Aquinas, and Shakespeare. This book concentrates especially on how Desmond both draws upon and develops some of the central insights in Augustine. At the same time, it brings together philosophy, theology, and literature into a rich engagement of ideas that impact the way humans think and live. Whether considering how our elemental wonder at creation brings us closer to God, or how our most intimate revelations about being human happen in the interior space of prayer, reading Desmond with Augustine illuminates a porous and interdisciplinary space of inquiry. Companions in the Between is a unique contribution to the growing body of scholarship on William Desmond's thought. It opens with a foreword from Desmond. Its pages will entice any reader who wants to know more about how contemporary philosophy can contest a space where philosophers are formulaically expected to shy away from divine transcendence.

John Sallis's thought is oriented to two overarching tasks: to bring to light the elemental in nature and to show how the imagination operates at the very center of human experience. He undertakes these tasks by analyzing a broad range of phenomena, including perception, the body, the natural world, art, space, and the cosmos. In every case, Sallis develops an original form of discourse attuned to the specific phenomenon and enacts a thorough reflection on discourse itself in its relation to voice, dialogue, poetry, and translation. Sallis's systematic investigations are complemented by his extensive interpretations of canonical figures in the history of philosophy such as Plato, Aristotle, Kant, Schelling, and Hegel and by his engagement with the most original thinkers in the areas of phenomenology, hermeneutics, and deconstruction.

Now available in a box set! The latest adventures of Private Kaylin Neya, only from New York Times bestselling author Michelle Sagara. Plunge into the fantastical city of Elantra, where magic and adventure ensure that life is never boring. CAST IN FLIGHT Private Kaylin Neya already has Dragons and Barrani as roommates. Adding one injured, flightless Aerian to her household should be trivial. But when a walk to the Halls of Law becomes a street-shattering magical assassination attempt, Kaylin discovers that it’s not the guest who’s going to be the problem: it’s all the people who suddenly want Moran dar Carafel dead. And though Moran refuses to tell her why she’s being targeted, Kaylin is determined to discover her secret and protect her at all costs—even if keeping Moran safe means dealing with Aerian politics, angry dragons and something far more sinister. CAST IN DECEPTION When one of Kaylin’s housemates, Annarion, decides to undertake the Barrani Test of Name, his friends refuse to let him face his task alone—and Kaylin’s sentient home, Helen, is the only structure capable of shielding the rest of Elantra from the magnitude of their power. Annarion and Mandoran almost caused the destruction of the High Halls once already. Add nine of their closest friends, and the danger is astronomically higher—especially since these guests are at the heart of a political firestorm. As tensions ramp up, the shadows beneath the High Halls are seeking a freedom that has never been possible before. Kaylin must find a way to keep those shadows from escaping, or that freedom will destroy her city, the empire and everything she holds dear. CAST IN OBLIVION Kaylin’s mission the West March might just start a war. She traveled with a Dragon, and her presence is perceived as an act of aggression in the extremely hostile world of Barrani-Dragon politics. A private Barrani Hell, built of Shadow and malice, exists beneath the High Halls. It is the High Court’s duty to jail the creature at its heart—even if it means that Barrani victims are locked in the cage with it. The Consort is willing to do almost anything to free the trapped and end their eternal torment. And she needs the help of Kaylin’s houseguests—and Kaylin herself. Failure won’t be death—it will be Hell. And that’s where Kaylin is going.

How many ways are there to approach life? Who is trying to get you to buy into their view of the world? And what do they have to gain by convincing you they are "right?" In his book Naked Guide To Life And Death author David Jon Peckinpaugh seeks to unmask the attempts to convince us that things are a certain way, according to how the so-called "experts" see the world, often resulting in a far more narrow and limited perspective than one might initially suppose. His main thesis is that expertise of all kinds can result in our being seduced into knowing something as being so, when it, in fact, is not nearly so evident as the experts tend to make it seem. In throwing off the veil of religion and science, psychology and philosophy, consumerism and commercialism, Mr. Peckinpaugh performs an endearing service on behalf of us all, humanity. Suggesting that beyond the often contracted and tight spaces of expertise, hence, extremism, there are wide open spaces still inviting to those who dare to entertain the wisdom of not-knowing.

Written in a rich but accessible style, one that draws from ancient wisdom and spirituality, The Psychoanalysis of Overcoming Suffering provides an essential guide for psychoanalysts and psychotherapists and their clients, and will also appeal to anyone who is interested in understanding how we suffer, why we suffer and what we can do about it.

This book considers the role of the two German-born emigre atomic scientists Klaus Fuchs and Rudolf Peierls in the evolution of British nuclear culture from the start of the Second World War until 1959. As outsiders coming to the United Kingdom, the experiences of these two figures offer points of access to key features of British nuclear culture, in particular its scientific foundations and the social, cultural and political consequences of the atomic scientist's work. Fuchs' and Peierls' ethnicity, their socialization and schooling in Germany along with their exposure to German culture before coming to the United Kingdom were instrumental in shaping nuclear culture in their host country. Peierls assumed a chief role in the establishment of the early British and the Allied nuclear weapons projects and took a leading role in the Atomic Scientists' Association, the chief organization of atomic scientists in Britain after the war. Fuchs, by contrast, shattered confidence in the efficiency of the British Security Service at home and abroad when he confessed in early 1950 that he had passed on sensitive nuclear data to the Soviet Union since 1940.
